Have you seen a beautiful Lotus flower in the pond? It is born in slime and mud. Now gently close your eyes.
You live in the world, which is surrounded by evil forces. Though the Lotus is in slime and mud, it rises up through the water and lifts its head high above the water. In the same way, with God’s names on your lips and heart you must emerge victorious over the unwanted influences and spread love and peace in this world.
Engage yourself in good actions wherever you are so that, your parents can be proud of you and hold their heads high. Like the lotus, you can offer yourself at the feet of the divine.
