Prayers and Meditations by Bahá'u'lláh: Sections I to VII, Part 1 of 2 (OLD WOW 757)

Baha’u’llah was the enlightened Prophet and founder of the Baha’i Faith. He and His teachings are believed to be prophesied in Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and other religions. Prayers and meditations by Bahá’u’lláh, Glorified art Thou, O Lord my God! Every man of insight confesses Thy sovereignty and Thy dominion, and every discerning eye perceives the greatness of Thy majesty and the compelling power of Thy might. The winds of tests are powerless to hold back them that enjoy near access to Thee from setting their faces towards the horizon of Thy glory, and the tempests of trials must fail to draw away and hinder such as are wholly devoted to Thy will from approaching Thy court. Methinks, the lamp of Thy love is burning in their hearts, and the light of Thy tenderness is lit within their breasts.

Selection from Ralph Waldo Emerson's Essay “Idealism,” Part 1 of 2

Ralph Waldo Emerson was a renowned 19th-century American essayist, philosopher, lecturer, poet, and a leader of the transcendental philosophical movement. Emerson is most famous for his essays, through which he expresses ideas of freedom, spirituality, individuality, the great ability of humans to realize almost everything, and the relationship between the soul and the surrounding world. Today we read a chapter from "Nature" titled "Idealism," about how ideal the connection between spirit and nature, between soul and matter, could be. In our spiritual awakening, we are to realize the ultimate oneness and purpose of all things that we've known in experience.

Where Does the Inner Peace Come From? Questions and Answers, Part 3 of 3 November 11, 1989, Brazil

And initiation means... another easier way to say, is to open the radio channel for you. You have the radio; you don’t know yet how to open, So I show you how to open. And every day, you open whenever you want and receive the message, listen to the song, the instruction of God. That so-called voice of God-or voice silence, or the Sound of God is our own Buddha Nature, our own vibration, our own wisdom, our own God Nature. If we have found it, then we’ll be wise, happy, peaceful. “Seek you first the Kingdom of God and all these things shall be added unto you.” It’s the same, like what the Bible says. Yes. First, we are enlightened and have peace within ourselves, then the world will become Heaven. There is no other way.

From the Sacred Confucian Analects, Chapters 9, 11 & 14, Part 1 of 2

From the Sacred Confucian Analects, Chapters 9, 11 & 14, Part 1 of 2

Must thee superior man have such variety of ability? He does not need variety of ability. If a superior man dwelt among them, what rudeness would there be? Praise songs all found their proper places. Abroad, to serve the high ministers and nobles; at home, to serve one’s father and elder brothers; in all duties to the dead, not to dare not to exert one’s self; and to be overcome of wine: which one of these things do I attain to? It passes on just lide this, not ceasing day or night! There are cases in which the blade springs, but the plant does not go on to flower! There are cases where it flowers but fruit is not subsequently produced! A youth is to be regarded with respect. How do we know that his future will not be equal to our present? When you have faults, do not fear to abandon them. The commander of the forces of a large state may be carried off, but the will of even a common man cannot be taken from him. Those things are by no means sufficient to constitute perfect excellence. When the year becomes cold, then we know how the pine and the cypress are the last to lose their leaves. The wise are free from perplexities; the virtuous from anxiety; and the bold from fear. While you do not know life, how can you know about death? To go beyond is as wrong as to fall short.

The Story of Christmas and the Love of Jesus, Part 2 of 2

Supreme Master Ching Hai told us if we keep the commandments of God, our world would become better, and we will be more benefited, more peaceful, more happy. Why vegetarian? Because the first commandment of God: Thou shall not kill! How come so many still suffer? Because we have not found the kingdom of God within. Jesus also set us a perfect example that we should not fear death and not cling to this world.

How Suffering Can Lead Us to Happiness, Part 2 of 3 Sydney, Australia – March 16, 1993

How Suffering Can Lead Us to Happiness, Part 2 of 3 Sydney, Australia – March 16, 1993

If we do not practice this, if we do not find a way to recognize our greatest inheritance, no one would say anything to us. Absolutely no one has the right to say anything. It’s only us, we, who suffer the loss that we have a great treasure and we don’t use it. And we suffer so much, or we have some happiness, but only very partial, very short-lived, and sometimes it is the cause of the next sorrow of tomorrow. If we do not get enlightenment, we do not know our Supreme Power, we deny ourselves the greatest privilege that even angels envy, even small gods in lower heavenly regions are jealous of, and that is a pity. We are the only ones to be blamed. And so, since I am here already, due to my fellow practitioners’ kindness and invitation, I am willing to share with you the way to regain your greatness, to experience your true Self, to have all your wishes fulfilled, and to live a more worthy life.

Selections from The Zen Poetry of Dōgen (vegetarian) – Verses from the Mountain of Eternal Peace: Part II, Chapter 4, Part 2 of 2

“Drifting pitifully in the whirlwind of birth and death, As if wandering in a dream, In the midst of illusion I awaken to the true path; There is one more matter I must not neglect, But I need not bother now, As I listen to the sound of the enening rain Falling on the roof of my temple retreat In the deep grass of Fukakusa.” “For six months I’ve been taking my rice at the home of a layman, Feeling like the blossoms of an old plum tree covered by the snow and frost, Exhilarated in hearing the first sound of thunder crackling across the sky – The five red petals of spring peach blossoms will soon be brightening the capital. Clouds are scattered in the autumn sky, But you can see the moon in your mind; I raise up my hossu and say, ‘Look!’” “If you wish only to see the physical moon, Then you will miss the moon-that-is-your-mind; When you see the brightness of clouds swirling about the moon, You may think at first that it is the moon itself that you are looking at, But then you will never behold the actual moon on this autumn night. All my life perplexed by truth and falsity, right and wrong; Now amusing myself in the moonlight, Laughing at the wind, Listening to the songs of birds – So many years spent idly contemplating, The immense white layer on the mountains; This winter, all of a sudden, I see it for the first time as a snow – mountain.”

Selections from My Religion by Leo Tolstoy (vegetarian): Chapter II, Part 1 of 2

Selections from My Religion by Leo Tolstoy (vegetarian): Chapter II, Part 1 of 2

“Everyone thinks of changing the world but no one thinks of changing himself.” This insightful saying by Leo Tolstoy is a good reminder for all of us to reflect inward. The renowned 19th-century Russian author suggested that we ask ourselves what God really wants us to do. Yearning for more than success, fame, and wealth, Leo Tolstoy eventually established himself as a moral philosopher and spiritual leader during the last 30 years of his life. In addition to adopting and promoting the vegetarian diet, he became a fervent Christian pacifist through an interpretation of the ethical teachings of Christ. My Religion is a book by Count Leo Tolstoy, completed in 1884. It is the follow up to his book, A Confession. These two volumes show his transition from existential questions about life to a firm belief in God and the spiritual principle of nonviolent resistance as described in the Gospels of the Holy Bible. “When I apprehended clearly the words ‘Resist not evil,’ my conception of the doctrine of Jesus was entirely changed; and I was astounded, not that I had failed to understand it before, but that I had misunderstood it so strangely. I knew, as we all know, that the true significance of the doctrine of Jesus was comprised in the injunction to love one’s neighbor. When we say, ‘Turn the other cheek,’ ‘Love your enemies,’ we express the very essence of Christianity.”

The Ultimate Fortune of Meeting a Perfect Living Master: Interview with Ishwar Puri Ji, Part 2 of 4

The spiritual path is not the journey from one drop finding an ocean. It is discovery of our own true Self where we already are. We are oceans functioning temporarily as drops. When we expand our awareness, we become the ocean. That’s the true path. That’s what it is. So far as the meditational practices are concerned, they’re designed to keep our attention within ourselves, inside behind the eyes at the third eye center. And therefore, we use several practices, the most important being repetition of certain words. By repeating those words, we are able to prevent the mind from thinking of other things.

The Divine Compassion – Selection from the Kabbalistic Zohar's Genesis, Part 2 of 2

The Divine Compassion – Selection from the Kabbalistic Zohar's Genesis, Part 2 of 2

Today we continue with the Sefer HaZohar’s chapter entitled “Rabbi Simeon’s Reflections on the Supreme and Its Union with Human Souls.” “Within them are hidden all the great spiritual mysteries and realities that to humanity as at present must remain objects of faith rather than of reason and intellectual perception. Only by the enlightened soul can they become known in its gradual ascension through them on its way to the great and transcendent Being termed The Etermal, The Everlasting One. But this cannot be effected only as it becomes receptive of and imbued with the light and splendor of the Sefirot Binah (Doctrine Intelligence) by which it is brought into union with the Divine and enters into the enjoyment of the Beatific Vision.”

From the Book of the Secrets of Enoch (vegetarian): Excerpts from Chapters 1-20, Part 1 of 2

The Book of the Secrets of Enoch, also known as the Second Book of Enoch, or Old Bulgarian Enoch, is an ancient religious text which describes the intensity of the Antediluvian (pre-Flood) time period. The Book of Enoch contains unique material on why the Great Flood was morally necessary, why some angels fell from Heaven, and prophetic revelations of the thousand-year reign of the Messiah. “And those men took me thence, and led me up on to the third [realm], and placed me there; and I looked downwards, and saw the produce of these places, such as has never been known for goodness. And I saw all the sweet-flowering trees and beheld their fruits, which were sweet-smelling, and all the foods borne by them bubbling with fragrant exhalation. And in the midst of the trees of life, in that place upon which the Lord rests, when He goes up into paradise; and this tree is of ineffable goodness and fragrance, and adorned more than every existing thing; and on all sides it is in form gold-looking and vermilion and fire-like and covers all, and it has produce from all fruits.”

Selections from the Holy Text of Tibetan Buddhism: Sixty Songs of Milarepa – Songs 11-13, Part 2 of 2

Today, we present to you an excerpt from the holy text of Tibetan Buddhism titled, "Sixty Songs of Milarepa.” “When the transience of life strikes deeply into one's heart One's thoughts and deeds will naturally accord with Dharma. If repeatedly and continuously one thinks about death, One can easily conquer the demons of laziness. No one knows when death will descend upon him - Just as this woman last night! Rechungpa, do not be harsh, and listen to your Guru! Behold, all manifestations in the outer world Are ephemeral like a dream last night! One feels utterly lost in sadness When one thinks of this passing dream. Rechungpa, have you completely wakened From this great puzzlement? Oh, the more I think of this, The more I aspire to Buddha and the Dharma. The pleasure-yearning human body is an ungrateful creditor. Whatever good you do to it, It always plants the seeds of pain. This human body is a bag of filth and dirt; Never be proud of it, Rechungpa, But listen to my song!"

From Jainism's Holy Tattvärtha Sutra, Bhaktamar Stotra and Namokar Mantra, Part 2 of 4

This unique composition in Sanskrit is in the form of short concise aphorisms divided in ten chapters. Many commentaries are written on it for elaborate explanation. It is recognized by all four Jain traditions as the earliest, most authoritative and comprehensive summary of Jain religion. It offers practical and ethical tools for living a restrained and tolerant, non-violent life. There are three jewels: Samyag Gyan – which is enlightened knowledge, Samyag Darshan – which is enlightened faith, and Samyag Charitra – which is enlightened conduct. Right faith, right knowledge, and right conduct together constitute the path to liberation.

From Jain Akaranga Sutra First Lecture Part 1/2

He who has the true knowledge about all things, will commit no sinful act, nor cause others to do so, etc. Knowing them, a wise man should not act sinfully towards the aggregate of six (kinds of) lives, nor cause others to act so, nor allow others to act so. He who knows these causes of sin relating to the aggregate of the six (kinds of) lives, is called a reward-knowing sage. There are some who, of a truth, know this (i.e. injuring) to be the bondage, the delusion, the death, the hell. About this he is informed when he has understood, or heard from the Revered One or from the monks, the faith to be coveted.

From the Sacred Works of Mencius: Gaozi I - Part 2 of 2

00:14:26

From the Sacred Works of Mencius: Gaozi I - Part 2 of 2

Mencius said: “According to the feelings that come from nature, people will act with goodness. This is what I mean in saying that human nature is good. If someone does evil, it is not the fault of their natural endowment. The feeling of compassion belongs to all men; as does that of shame; and that of reverence and respect; and that of right and wrong. The feeling of compassion implies the principle of benevolence; that of shame implies the principle of righteousness; that of reverence and respect implies the principle of courtesy; and that of right and wrong implies the principle of wisdom. Benevolence, righteousness, courtesy, and wisdom are not infused into us from without. We are certainly furnished with them, but we don’t often think of them. Hence it is said, ‘Seek and you will find them. Neglect and you will lose them.’ … It is said in the Book of Poetry, ‘Heaven gave birth to mankind, and gave each thing its specific laws. People follow the permanent principles and love this admirable virtue.’”
