Verse from the Veda for the Serious Practitioner

Dante and Beatrice gaze upon the Highest Heavens; from Gustave Doré's illustrations to the Divine Comedy.

Dante and Beatrice gaze upon the Highest Heavens; from Gustave Doré’s illustrations to the Divine Comedy.

Followers of many earthly religions hope to gain the Heavenly State upon death. Some are promised the Most Holy Abode by simply believing. Some followers are promised the Highest State by actions promoting the earthly religion, and now-a-days, that is a well-used trap. Today, there are many misguided groups perpetrating horrendous acts of violence in the name of religion. There are many groups similar to the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, where followers are promised all the glories of heaven by carrying out acts of “jihad.”

For the leaders and followers of the earthly religions, the Highest State is unreachable, because the Heavenly State is gained by service to heaven. Yes, indeed, but luckily, heaven is served by acts of kindness benefiting all upon the earth. Yes, carry out tremendous acts of kindness all the time. Be helpful and caring to all living beings. Compassion for others is required on the Path to Heaven.

Here is a verse from the Holy Text, a call for action.

Heaven calls on from the state above for the endeavor to obtain,

the place frequented by all is away from,

to go towards the despondent with a smile,

as a protector,

and approaching with prayers.
