Lord Krishna tells Arjuna in Gita –
‘Tasmatsarveshu Kaleshu Mamanusmara Yudhya cha’
‘Always remember Me and fight the war’.
This indicates that you do your work from time to time but always remember the almighty Lord. Whether you are pure, impure, wise, unwise, healthy, unhealthy, and wealthy or poor, in whatever situation you are, just remember God. Pray to God with heart full of love, and crying with deep pain, ‘O My Lord! Kindly bless me so that I may not forget you’. Only with mere remembrance one attains salvation. Only devotion is yours but mercy is of almighty Lord. What an easy and simple path it is! There are many different paths leading to God but this is the simplest and straightforward path to God i.e. pray ‘Hey Mere Nath! I must not forget you’. Only by remembering God all kinds of sorrows disappear forever. What an easy way it is!
Sachhe Hriday Se Prarthana Jab Bhakt Schha Gaay Hai ।
To Bhakt-watsal Kaan Men Wah Pahunch Jhat Hi Jaay Hai ॥
God can hear you everywhere – ‘Sarvatah Shrutimlloke’ (Gita 13/13). Whenever you speak, actually you speak in the ears of God only. Tell God that ‘O Lord! I have only this to pray that I must not forget you’. Apart from this I don’t need wealth, good reputation, praise, worldly name or fame or any public attention. The only thing I want is that I must not forget you.
With this alone all your work will be done and nothing will be left unfinished. So start praying immediately-‘Hey Mere Nath! I must not forget you’. Even if you do not have enough faith in your heart, then also start saying this. By continuously praying in this way your artificial faith will become real. While working, cooking, sweeping, filling water or doing anything, keep on praying ‘O Lord! Please bless me so that I may not forget you’, ‘Hey Mere Nath! I must not forget you’. Pray this frequently without a gap of five minutes. If you can’t do this then say this in every ten minutes. If you cannot say this in every ten minutes then miss one meal. If you fall asleep, then as soon as you wake up, say ‘Hey Mere Nath! I must not forget you’. Never leave praying even if you don’t feel like praying so. Practice this and see for yourself whether you get the benefit or not! Praying in front of God never goes waste.
