Kartik Inspiration 2019 Day 25 - Remain in the Spiritual Atmosphere

By Sacinandana Swami

Remain in the Spiritual Atmosphere

Today I got an amazing realization. I was walking under the hot Indian sun and became physically and mentally exhausted, like a flat tire. I looked around, the countryside was baking in the heat, the ground was dry, there was no shade and it was a long walk to the next village.

Then, I decided to make an experiment - and that made all the difference. I focused my mind on chanting and remembered Krishna, Who is always present in Vrindavan. I thought of a pastime He performs during that particular time of the day, the forenoon, when He goes into the forest and starts herding the cows. As I connected to an inner landscape, an inner picture, I placed a frame around my mind which I didn’t allow to leave. I stayed with the mantra and remembering Krishna.

This became a deep lesson. I forgot the heat, I forgot the countryside withering in the sun. I forgot the dry earth and the dust stirred up by the wind. I just kept my mind in that frame of chanting and remembering Krishna.

You can apply this anywhere: frame your mind! Keep it in an uplifting environment, reaction and thoughts. Don’t allow it to leave that frame and interact with the tanmatras, the five material elements and their movements under the powerful control of the material nature. Protect your mind by keeping it in a spiritually protected atmosphere.

I owe this day a lot, for my chanting and life. I will frame my mind, keep it there and in this way stay beyond the influence of maya, the illusionary energy.
