"Learn to be thankful to everyone, to the entire creation, even to your enemy, and to those who insult you and get angry with you, because they all help you to grow. They are mirrors, images of your own mind. If you know how to read and interpret the images properly, you can get rid of your mind and its weaknesses.”
-Amma -

Spiritual Banking

Deposit: naam-jap, meditation, bhakti, total surrender, accept God's will
Withdraw (cash): seva, selfless service to others

In our life's journey, we need cash; to withdraw cash from bank account, we need to first deposit some.

If we deposit money into an account but never withdraw any, is there any benefit in that money?

Let's deposit as much as we can and then withdraw regularly to put it in use.

Inspired by:Commentary on Barah-Mah (a section of Guru Granth Sahib) by Professor Darshan Singh.
