हिन्दी में धारणा-वाचन : इला देढिया
Recently I shared with a friend that I had been having trouble finding time to meditate daily. My friend suggested I spend time on the minisite “Teachings to Live By.”
I fell in love with Baba’s teachings, with the readers, with each
, and with the delicious meditations that followed. Today’s teaching, number 28, particularly resonates with the work I am doing. I cannot imagine why I thought I didn’t have time to meditate. I am so grateful for my friend’s great suggestion.

Baba’s teaching number 28 about respect and the accompanying
struck a chord deep within me. It is dawning on me more and more just how profound and meaningful respect is. My whole being soars in recognition when Baba teaches that respecting someone else “is the highest prayer.” Respect truly is praise of God. I see that when I respect others, I truly respect myself. When my eyes have this divine vision of respect for all in the human and natural world, I live in heaven right here and now.
I have been praying recently for my speech, in particular, to embody respect. I loved how the
reminded me that, when listening to another, it’s best to pause and hold my silence in order to respectfully receive what that person is saying, and only then—when the invitation comes and the time is right—to speak. In my experience, this requires a noble restraint, and I see how observing that discipline helps to purify my hearing and speech.
