Nevada, July 21 (ANI): Hindu statesman Rajan Zed has urged the Hindus and other seekers worldwide to spend the summer vacation by "seeking refuge in God".
Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, suggested that after freeing yourself from worldly bondages and distractions, spend at least part of your summer vacation by absorbing yourself in God, meditating on him, realizing him, seeking illumination and blissful union with him, discovering him, worshipping him, dedicating yourself to him, etc.
Free yourself from impure thoughts and fear and fill your hearts with peace, Rajan Zed pointed out.
Zed further said that ancient Hindu scriptures had described God as eternal reality, all-knowing, omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient, source of all power, supreme lord, master of the universe, eternal one, supreme guardian, supreme architect, who presides over all, supreme creator and destroyer, without beginning or end, pure consciousness, ruler of all, etc.
Rajan Zed mentioned: Shvetashvatara Upanishad says-World is the river of God, flowing from him and flowing back to him; while Lord Krishna indicates in Bhagavad-Gita (Song of the Lord)-I am the beginning, the middle, and the end of creation.
Meanwhile, His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI has also reportedly asked people to spend time during summer vacation listening to the word of God, which was truly necessary in our lives. People needed to work and dedicate themselves to their homes and professions, but God must still come first, he reportedly said on July 18 in Castel Gandolfo (Italy). (ANI)
