Episode 3 of 6 of the Shakti and Realization Seminar — Yogis use the term asuras to mean the moods, thoughts, words and actions which distract and take us away from higher consciousness. Shakti is the force that cleanses any area of our life where the asuras have dominion. Sri Ramakrishna taught this approach as the easiest way to rise above asuras and be fulfilled.
Sri Ramakrishna’s method for bringing the potency and activity of Divine Mother into one’s life is to be like a humble child and simply ask. It’s a very effective approach because the ego is receptive. Just cry:
Mother, You’ve created me as a conscious being. I can think and I can breathe. I can walk and I can talk. I’m a child of consciousness. I don’t know who You are. I haven’t seen You. But I’m Your child and You’ve got to come to me.
Then, in this mood and attitude, state your concern or need.
We ask you to commit two hours a week to selfless service. This service can be anything you choose ranging from helping a family member or neighbor to volunteering at a nonprofit organization.
This commitment is solely between you and your inner self.
