Life is really very short. To make it more and more meaningful we try in very many ways. Even believe in Rebirth. Faith may help to overcome frustration; without reason what’s the gain! Leave it. Unfortunately, we fail to come out successful in every endeavor. The main problem is we don’t have any guidance right from our childhood. Again, if we have at all, often we ignore what we are desired to follow. Normally, disobedience is our very nature.
There are boys and girls in every society who turn hostile today over a trifling matter. Strangely, juvenile delinquency has been increased to a great extent at present. What is the reason behind such an incidence? We are to delve deep into the problem we face everyday and find out solutions individually. Parents and teachers are there to help us; we should pay attention to what they advice. Sadly, the junior can easily read an unwritten message:”Do as I say; don’t do as I do.”--This lesson from the senior is in the air.
These are very simple words. We know much about these but learn nothing out of any untoward incident that happens all the time around us. Our family and society have lost control over the youth communities. Those who do not go to school or do not have scope at all due to poverty, there problem is a different issue. We may discuss it afterwards. Let us get the point with the rest who has no such factor related with.
The problem is: we read much, think little, imitate others and ultimately we are obliged to leading an ordinary life. Virtually there is no harm. But when we become father or mother in our own family we face the same problem that made our parents helpless in our adolescence. However, just to find a perfect solution once I approached Ma-Mahajnan, the great spiritual genius, I just quote here what she did say in reply.
“What do you want to make known anew? He, who knows, needs little help to know. He, who doesn't, never does. Well, you'll of course say in reply how to help one, who doesn't know. You'll seek the means of how to make others known. All right. Now, what are those means where lies that easy way?”
To live in the realm of non-desire is difficult. Very true. Man is all the time sunk in seeking and getting. Well, he again can attain to that state of humanity—that super manhood. Now the easy way is to lessen down within him that craving for seeking and getting. How is this 'lessening down' to be effected? He can't do it all by himself. If somebody can, very good, nothing can be finer. But if he can't, he has to take help of somebody who can. You want to find out what kind of help that's going to be. So you request me to suggest a few ways for rendering this help.”
Well, what is meant by 'duty perfectly done'? Who is greater—ideal house-holder or ideal 'sanyasi'- a monk? No house holder is an ideal one. No home appears to be an ideal, indeed. In the name of ideal they pursue, it's the very reverse.”
We may love something but don't take that away into our home. Everybody loves truth. This is very true. But what sort of love is that? Well, when we walk about the streets of a town, we love everything green that we see on either side. When we are about to take one of the specimens into our home, we ask ourselves—is it worthwhile, should we take it, should we? So many questions to answer! Where such ordinary things assail our mind in this way, how is it possible for us to tackle what is extraordinary? Even if we love it, we cannot possibly get a hold on it. How can we bring it home? We cannot. Nobody can. None can make their way across the jungle.”

Author's Bio: 

Ma-Mahajnan, a matchless spiritual genius, expressed her entire creation in a state of "Conscious Trance” which has all been stuffed with matters of highly philosophical value and related with strong literary sense. She could not attend even Primary School due to extreme poverty. Strangely, she was taught all by herself in the School of Nature. The weird and wonderful life is possibly the souse of her vast experience and profound realization. She was born on 17 July, 1928 and passed away on 22 January, 2011. Listen to what Ma-Mahajnan said once: What I tell you briefly about the early phase. Listen first about my life. I was married off at the age of thirteen. I was the second wife, my husband married for the second time and thus I came into his family. I didn’t get any chance for schooling.” You’ll perhaps weep to hear how I came as a wife, driven by utter poverty or how they packed me off. After that all at once I slowly progressed in the domain of that ‘Nothingness’-- “I’m the Mother; the Nothingness, too.”

Asokananda Prosad, Ma-Mahajnan's first disciple, is an engineer, a philosopher and a philanthropist. Being the missing son—the eldest and the first disciple of Great Ma-Mahajnan, he has had to shoulder so many burdens of Ashram and Temple. He has long been translating Works of Ma-Mahajnan, written in Bengali, into English. The Mother didn’t just put those in black and white, but simply expressed, extempore and spontaneous, in a state of “Conscious Trance” and Asokananda, along with his brothers and sisters of Ashram and Temple, got those tape-recorded.
