We are a minuscule part of a gigantic universe. We should adopt the same behaviour in our lives as that adopted by all the other components of the Universe. This is the correct natural course, and the secret to our success lies in adopting this course.

Look at the world of plants. Plants have silently adopted the mechanism of photosynthesis. They continuously supply oxygen that fulfils the necessities of other living things, using up unwanted carbon dioxide. This is a selfless system of profitability. It is essential that we also choose to follow this system in our lives.

Peace is the most discussed theme in the world. Every section of society claims that it wants to establish peace. It is difficult to find a single person who is an exception to this rule. But, why is it that peace has remained only a subject for debate, and to this day has failed to become a practical reality? This contradiction is very strange, but it is a fact that no one can deny.

The history of peace shows that there can be two periods of peace: political peace and non-political peace. In ancient times people were ruled by kings in almost every part of the world. Under a king’s reign, only one kind of peace was possible, that is, political peace.

Prayer is only another name for spirituality: spirituality and peace are two sides of a single coin. Spirituality is the inner content of peace and peace is the external expression of spirituality. Where there is peace, there is spirituality, and where there is spirituality there is peace. Both are interconnected.

Unlike other beings, we are conscious of the past, the present and the future. We cherish a very pleasant consciousness of the future, aspirations of a better life, or of the fulfillment of our dreams. Our lives centre on our constant efforts to improve our future. But this perfect future does not seem to ever materialise. This is a part of God’s creation plan.

The March 2011 Tōhoku earthquake was the most powerful known earthquake ever to have hit Japan, and one of the five most powerful in the world since 1900. The earthquake triggered a tsunami whose waves reached heights of 133 feet and travelled 10 kilometres inland. The tsunami then caused a nuclear meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. Losses were estimated at $200 billion.
