MERRY CHRISTMAS : LORD JESUS CHRIST – A MESSENGER OF  LOVE & COMPASSION

23 Dec

 MERRY CHRISTMAS

LORD JESUS CHRIST – A MESSENGER OF  LOVE & COMPASSION

Whence there is a huge presence of evil doer

Who misuse their power and high stature

To browbeat the general populace

Then our Super Soul (Paramatma) sends

His Messengers for spreading His message

To save the simple souls (Atmas) from these sinners.

 

Born to venerable Parents Marry & Joseph

The blessed Son of Spirit of our Lord, the Holiest

In Nazareth, Gaillee, the city of David

That is the reason, he is also referred

As Jesus of Nazaewrh

A saviour of humanity

And to spread the fragrance and purity

Of His message of peace to all humanity.

Men of wisdom came from places afar

Mesmerized by this Shining Star

To witness a holiest event

Which only happens, rarest of rare in time and space

Angels sing songs so melodious

Shepherds paid their huge reverence

Filled with immense exuberance.

Even old in years though

 Simeon & Anna saw their ambition fructified

As they too had a glimpse of the Glorious One

Brought up in rural town of Nazareth

His adaptive & adoring father Joseph

Taught Him the art of using

Tools of a carpenter

A labour so arduous, that anybody can reckon

Resulting in so much perspiration

By the rays of sun so blistering.

The revered God’s son

Worked tirelessly in the hot Sun!

Thence as he cometh

From the waters of Jordan

A voice so refreshing

Cometh from Heaven

‘This is my beloved Son

In whom I am very pleased’. 

Thereafter, Jesus went to the backwoods

Surprise of surprises of all, which could not be fathomed!

To allow Satan to temp Him

To break the back of Satan.

He fasted for days forty,

And vanquished the Satan thence forth

With eternal will of God in the heaven

Then brimming with the Holy Sprit

He lived with the commons

For three long years.

John recorded Jesus as the son of God,

Who raised the dead to live again with his grace

Made the blinds to get their eyesight back again

Lames to walk again

Demons dare not appear again

Came to the succour of hapless, aplenty

During storms, with so much ferocity.

With a few loaves and fish

Made food sufficient for five thousands!

Believe – no alternative, we have to!

Since He is sent by our Creator

As a Saviour

As His Incarnate

The All Knowing

And the All Powerful Being.

Then on a Thursday Night

Followers he met

In the city of Jerusalem

On an occasion so solemn,

He announced, unexpectedly

It is ordained that He may die

For those He loved so Him so dearly

And told them to remember

His association with them

And also promised, as destined

To come back, again

For their own sake!

He spent time in the garden of Gethsemane

Prayed to the Divine Providence.

No case was found against Jesus

By those who tried Him

Because He was flawless whence he interacted with gentry

Yet was crucified on Friday even then!

He departed this life

For He loved us all

After when He was dead

His power was proclaimed

By happening most unexplained

On the morn of Sunday

He rose from the dead

Appeared to Mary

And apostles and a huge gathering

And gave the message of love

Goes to prove

He remains invincible in both the states.

O Lord, bestow us Thy Invaluable CHRISTMAS DAY GIFT

The precious of all Thy Gifts

That Thee could only grant

The coveted gift of peaceful coexistence

In the whole world by Thy Grace

So that this world could be a better place to live,

A place where there is a prevalence of Eternal Love. 

LORD JESUS CHRIST – A MESSENGER OF  LOVE & COMPASSION

Humans are the special creations which our Creator has created because they are bestowed with the faculty of thinking along with power of discrimination. If we acutely introspect as to how everything created is being taken care of by an unseen power, we would reach to a conclusion that Omnipotent and Omniscient One who controls everything around us and beyond. Although He remains an ‘unseen hand’ yet nobody disputes His existence though some may agree grudgingly but ultimately Prabhu’s imprint will remain indelible.

God deputes His chosen few, as His representatives, to spread the fragrance of His message. Such messengers are the embodiments of piety, purity and compassion. If we introspect deep into the lives of such messengers of God, one thing undoubtedly comes to the fore; such special messengers are apostle of peace in real sense of terms. Besides, in their lives they took upon themselves to cure various afflictions of humans –  physical and mental. Such God’s ambassadors of peace withstood hardships during their life time, suffered for others and remained disciplined from their childhood onwards. Such special ones continued spreading the message of LOVE and also helped the general masses for self-realization by communing with God, notwithstanding the fact that it was not to the likings of people at the helm of affairs at that time.

These Sons of God did not care for their mundane pleasures but did everything to ameliorate the conditions of the hapless and destitute with their mystical prowess. Their message to the humanity was to be compassionate towards the needs of others besides urging the general masses to uphold their religious duties. One amongst the Messengers of God is the Jesus Christ.   

In other words, it could be construed that God incarnates as great souls for spreading Divine Message on His behalf. It is a prime requirement of disillusioned minds who are immersed in the world of their own making and never realize that their mission in this world is to spread the message of humanity thereby understand the true purpose of our life on this planet.

The real purpose is to spread the fragrance of love to the fellow beings including all the creations created by our Lord with a consciousness that even intractable challenges of ours could be overcome if we have firm belief in His existence and associate Him in our day to day happenings. Sure enough, we would be surprised about the results of such actions.

Jesus Christ was the one who had won victory against material consciousness. He exists in the hearts and minds of multitudes. He said, ‘I do nothing of myself, but as my Father hath taught me.’ Christians including numberless others who have indomitable belief in His preaching shun delusions and follow His ideals. His presence is felt through his teachings. Those who have self realization know that in every speck of cosmos Christ Consciousness exists but only those who have vision can experience this. Christ Consciousness is a part of Cosmic Consciousness should never be lost sight of by us humans.

Jesus was born in 7 – 2 BC and was crucified in 30-33 AD in Jerusalem. He was born in Nazareth, Galilee to Parents Marry & Joseph.

His teachings are universal in nature; if we care to follow. If follow these in our day to day lives, we can make our life sublime.

Jesus Christ preached the importance of having compassion for our fellow beings. He taught that kindhearted feeling should always be there even for all including our enemies:-

Mark 6:34 When he went ashore he saw a great crowd, and  he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. And he began to teach them many things.

Colossians 3:12-13  Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved,  compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and,  if one has a complaint against another,  forgiving each other;  as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.

  • He is held to be the Son of God, a Messiah or Messenger of God, a charismatic healer:

Matthew 14:14 When he went ashore he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them and healed the sick.

  • Christ preached forgiveness and mercy. He even forgave those who harmed him immensely. No ill-feelings for anyone absolutely that is the message given:

Matthew 6:14-15  For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Matthew 18:21-22 Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him?  As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy-seven times.

Daniel 9:9  To the Lord our God belong mercy and forgiveness, for we have rebelled against him

  • Christ spread the message to judge others correctly it is fine if we judge others negatively then we will also be judged by our Creator on the Judgment Day then we have to face the music for every creature’s action is recorded in the consciousness of God.

Matthew 7:1-2  Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and  with the measure you use it will be measured to you.

Jesus Christ being a social reformer He had the unique quality of helping those who are suffering  – it may be any kind of suffering.

Corinthians 1:3-4  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

Even for healthy and prosperous family life He had a message (for young women who have to take responsibility to run a family’s affairs):

Titus 2:4 and so train the young women to love their husbands and children,

    Good morning dear Harbans and thanks for this great article. With this post you really topped yourself. Not only it contains an encyclopedic knowledge of a religion that is not your own but you also treat it with extreme respect and tolerance, the hallmark of a sage soul like yours.The scholarly religious tradition of your Brahmin- influenced household does show in your writings.god bless your mother and grandmothers for this patient nurturing of so many important concepts. I especially like the concept of a Super Soul was it Pahatma?) I believe that the Catholic Church veered too far off from its Eastern-Mystic traditions to embrace Cartesianism and Pure Rationality in the Renaissance. Following the teachings of Thomas Merton, I believe that we should go back to our mystic traditions in order to maintain the necessary balance. Have you read “The Seven Stories Mountain” already? Let’s remember that Christianity started with a few followers of Jesus Christ hiding in caves around the Sea of Galilee, practicing rituals that might be considered “too pagan” by today’s churches.
    A big hug form your spiritual friend across the oceans.Merry Christmas to you and your family!

    Hello. It’s almost midnight here in Miami so we can raise a glass together to celebrate the advent of Christmas. Did you like my commentary?

     
    • Harbans

      December 25, 2017 at 4:53 am

      MERRY CHRISMAS AGAIN. Your commentary has originated from your heart and I think it to be sincere. Although I am a Hindu Brahmin by birth yet I follow and imbibe everything good that I come across from any person, religious scriptures etc. This apart, I think every creation of our benevolent Creator is distinct and has usefulness. Every religion has got distinct identity but single PARAMATMA (SUPER SOUL, CREATOR, ISHWAR, ALLAHA, OR ANY OTHER YOU MAY WISH TO SAY HIM) it depends on your free-will. I do not consider myself as a person who has gone through everything that is contained in all the religious scriptures including that of Hinduism. I have not read all. Furthermore, I go through a particular book, try to follow in my life since having know-how is of no use till such time it is used practically in our lives. To be frank, I am a simple person, do not know the meaning of complex Mantras or rituals being followed in my religions even. I only pray on OM and it gives me immense satiety and whenever I fcus on any prayer ; in temples, churches or any other GOD’S ALTAR, it gives me the same LIGHT no difference at all anywhere. Thanks again for your good words. Only a true SOUL of our Lord can pen such thoughts. HARBANS

        Good morning my dear friend. Being simple doesn’t mean being silly. All the great prophets in the history of Mankind have been commoners, except Siddharta Gautama of course, that were illuminated by God Almighty to carry a message to the rest of us. and that’s the key point: we should not pay excessive attention to the messenger carrying it but to what he/she/sie is bringing us. Did you have the chance to read some of Merton’s writings? Whenever you can please read and comment my blog “The Impossible Love” because of it iS a central building block of my book, the one you will be making a preface to. Arrivederci

        Good morning Dr. Sahib. My grateful thanks for your kind words. I go through the writings of Merton’s writings and enhance my know-how. I shall also appraise the write-up ‘The Impossible Love’ in the meanwhile. HARBANS

    Dr. Sahib, as I had promised, I had promised to appraise some of the writings of renowned writer Merton. His spiritual inclination, knowledgeable about western civilization including Eastern oriental civilization is really praiseworthy and I would like to learn more from his gem of writins.
