Celebration of Swami Chidanandaji's Birthday is really worship of God.
During the celebrations of the Birthdays of great men you hear of their actions, their thoughts and their instructions, and the way in which they led their life. You imbibe several good qualities from their glorious example. You try to emulate them. You put those qualities into practice in your daily life.
Frequent Birthday celebrations are necessary. Constantly hammering of sublime ideas on the mind is necessary. Your mind will otherwise run in its own old grooves. Through daily Japa you will have to bring it under control. Regularity is a very important thing.
But you always forget these important things of life. You don't forget the minute items of your food, but you forget God. An ounce of practice is better than tons of theory.
You have a sin-hardened heart that commits various misdeeds. It has to be made soft as butter, by the practice of compassion. A man may deliver lectures for hours together, but if you don't find compassion and humility in him shun him.
Compassion and humility Swami Chidanandaji has got in abundance. In the previous birth itself he was a Sannyasin; from the way in which he behaves we can find that out.
Practise compassion, service, humility and other virtues. Then shine like our Chidanandaji. This is my fervent prayer !
Chidananda is a Jeevanmukta, a great saint, an ideal Yogi, a Para Bhakta and a great sage. Swami Chidananda is all this and much more .... He was born to fulfil a great mission. He is the torch-bearer of my mission.
