must never be disappointed of the Divine Grace"
(Silence Speaks, Page 313)
My Revered guide, Pujya Sri K.C. Narayana Garu and
dear brothers and sisters
I seek your permission to share a few of my thoughts
on the topic-
‘we must never be disappointed of the Divine Grace’.
Our Master further stated in continuation of
the above statement,
‘God is the
supreme Master and His will must be carried out in
every respect. We should think ourselves to be
bankrupt and remain ever busy with worship and
devotion, not minding the interruptions and
disturbances that happen to come in our way’.
When the thought came to me, that I can share
some views on the above topic, based on my
understanding, the following came to my mind-
What is divinity?
What is the link that we have with divinity?
Why we always expect the divinity to help us,
support us, be with us, whether we do or do not do
our duty in our day to day life.
After spending some time in contemplation, after
reading some of the articles, hearing talks, etc.,
graciously provided to us by our Master and our
spiritual guide, Rev. Pujya Sri K.C. Narayana Garu,
on various occasions, I would like to share my views
further on this topic.
In the above statement our beloved Master used
certain key words which, I feel, are very important
to comprehend, understand real meaning and spirit of
the same. They
are Disappointment, Divine grace, Supreme Master,
His will, Worship, Devotion, Interruptions and
I wish to elaborate a little on these words,
as I understood, from various articles, talks, etc.,
Disappointment (A feeling of dissatisfaction
that results when your expectations are not
Master states that- “Problems
are so many with all humanity; and as such as one
remains attentive to a problem, it becomes a
stumbling block for him. Disappointments make us
cowards. If somehow we remove the prefix 'dis',
'appointment' remains. That means we have been
appointed for something; and when appointment for
certain job has been made, we can never think that
we are unable to do it. That means a sort of a wave
is working smoothly, and you are carrying on with
it. In that case, there is no idea either of the
past or of the future. Be like a tiger in the realm
of God, and progress is assured.” 1
“No doubt the world will be paradise, but for that
we have to work very hard. What we have to do is
only to have a strong grip always on Divinity. I
never felt disappointed and worked single handed and
the result is before us all. I have full confidence
in myself, with the Master's hand at my back; and it
has always worked. The same thing I want from all of
Divinity is JUST and BALANCED
God is quite plain and simple, devoid of everything,
not to speak of any solidity.
We have a relationship with the divinity, which is

virtually everything in this Universe,

Pure and unalloyed love. This consciousness does not

Worship and Devotion-
“Prayer is the sign of devotion. It shows that we
have established our relationship with the Holy
Divine. When the idea of Divine Mastership is
established our position turns into that of serf.
Now service is the only concern of the serf. Take
for example the case of Bharata. He never allowed
his heart to be contaminated with anything but the
esteem, regard and devoted worship of the Master.
This example must be kept in view for maintaining
the relationship which is the true form of devotion.
This is the connecting link between the Master and
Interruptions and disturbances-
“Almost all religions unanimously agree that
whatever happens is the result of our actions.
Nobody ever suffers in contravention of this
principle. When such is the case one will naturally
be led to the conclusion that it is really the fate
which he himself has built up.
Truly speaking, we
ourselves are the makers of fate.
When we do something by applying our head and heart
we form impressions thereof at the base, which
remain there in seed-form till they are washed off
by the effect of Bhogam (the process of undergoing
the effects). The Bhogam is thus essential and
Master also wants us to know that-
One of the fundamental truths in spirituality is
that God grants us what we need and not what we
God is quite plain and simple, devoid of
everything, not to speak of any solidity. So, it
is absolutely necessary for us to free ourselves
from grossness and solidity in order to achieve
The goal is not something else other than this
God. Where do we find this God? We find Him in
our own heart. We are not going to search Him
elsewhere; so the goal is not far off, it is
within us only. Then why is it we say he is the
goal of human life? As on date, we have found
other things as goal of human life: to become
rich, to become powerful, to become popular and
the like. As against this, we should see that
the goal within us has got a full command over
our existence. The yielding to that Divinity
that is within us, is the only way to reach the
real goal. To be aware of the presence of the
Divinity in us and to see that Divinity
percolates into every action of ours is the way
to express God. The Divinity should be allowed
to have influence on everything we do from
getting up from the bed to retiring to bed. We
should share whatever we have thinking that the
Divinity has given us and therefore we share
with others. This type of sharing is fundamental
ethics, which we should develop. Whatever work
we do, it should be treated as a trust reposed
by God in us, so it should be excellent and in
accordance with the norms both in letter and
spirit. Lord Krishna said "Yoga is skill in
action". Whatever work that is given to us is to
be done with a feeling that it is the Divinity
which permits us to do the work as a 'trustee'.
No work stops for any person's sake and goes on
without any interruption under the Divine Order.
Rev. Sri KCN garu has once mentioned that ‘if we
cannot find the Master in our heart, we cannot find
He asserts that HE resides in our heart,
guiding us all through and this being the TRUTH, we
sometimes keep HIM away from our heart and gets into
the hands of maya of our mind duly exposing us to
all sorts of problems in our day-to-day life.
When we think that we are the doers, keeping the
divinity away from hearts, we become victim of maya
of our mind and at times we get disturbed and think
that we are not getting the required grace from the
Divinity for no fault of us.
At this point, there is every chance to feel
the “disappointment of the Divine Grace”.
Reason to feel the above point-
When we do/attempt certain things in our
day-to-day life we always expect something good
or pleasant thing as an end result.
We firmly believe most of the times, that
we are doing only the right thing (for someone’s
sake) and hence we deserve the predefined
favourable result sooner or later.
When the result of the action is not what we had
expected or anticipated, generally we get
disappointed and if the same action and result
gets repeated it
results in frustration and finally we
conclude by saying or feeling God is not kind, I
am deprived of God’s grace, etc.,
My spiritual guide, Pujya Sri K.C. Narayana garu
couple of times cautioned me about the ‘doership’
which is one of my odd notions and advised me ‘to
accept everything in life as a gift from God and
most of my woes will vanish’.
In order to remember HIM as much as possible and
also to reduce the ‘doership’ in me, I started
practicing to keep a small note on my computer at my
work, which says “HE is the Doer, am NOT!!”
This process helped me to a great extent not
only at work life but also in my personal life.
Since we feel the presence our Master always in our
heart, we should really try to be with God and in
God all the time, and never be away from Him even
for a moment. This simple process, if followed in
the right spirit, love and devotion, will keep us in
touch with the Ultimate.
The purpose of our life and our real goal is to see
Divinity in all and express Divinity in all its
grandeur, love, fraternity and compassion. It is not
seeing the Master in some far off place but to feel
HIS presence in our heart.
This helps us to realize our Goal, which is,
to ensure ‘Happiness to one and all’ and maintain
‘Balancedness under all circumstances and
I conclude, with an appeal that all of us should
remember and imbibe the true spirit behind the below
mentioned points, which helps us practice “Constant
Remembrance” more efficaciously as advised by our
Divinity is just and balanced
We are an absolute dependent expression of God
Inseparable relationship with the Divinity
If we are totally dependent upon HIM, it does not
matter much what happens to us.
By going through the results of our actions we are
reducing the load on our being.
Whatever happens (miseries, difficulties,
etc.,) is the result of our actions only
Oneness with one and all

Divine Grace is available in abundance, ever willing
to help us and it is for us to make ourselves more

Proceed towards Unknown.
Love HIM who loves all. Destination is far
Remembrance is the instrument.
When we understand the true meaning and spirit of
the above points, I feel, they help us follow the
instruction of the Master i.e., “We
must never be disappointed of the Divine Grace".
Let us use as much as possible the
provided to us by our beloved Master, i.e.,
which will help us remove all the obstacles which we
come across in our journey towards our Home Land.
