Celebrating birthdays is a major tradition across all cultures with gift giving as a common cultural aspect. But what is the gift that MCKS would have liked to receive? Students who had the good future of meeting the Teacher while he was in the body know that MCKS didn’t really care about receiving material offerings. So what would make the perfect gift to offer the Teacher?
The Ethos Of Master Choa’s Teachings
Many people think that the purpose of spirituality is to achieve inner peace, divine bliss, and divine ecstasy. According to MCKS the purpose of spiritual development was much more. According to Master Choa the main purpose of spiritual practice is to produce compassionate, good hearted, powerful who will become great divine servants. The word to the emphasised is SERVANT. The ethos of the Teachings of MCKS was to enable students to be of greater service to mankind and the planet Earth.
MCKS instilled the importance of service to others in the hearts and minds of Pranic Healers and Arhatic Yogis around the world. He did this not just through his Teachings, but more importantly, by his never ending example. MCKS himself started many charitable and philanthropic organizations all over the world to feed the hungry.
Because it was the right thing to do.
We have seen many Pranic Healers being asked for money by beggars and the homeless. We would immediately see them offer money to the person.
Because its the right thing to do and we are trying to emulate the example of our great Teacher, who was extremely generous. Master Choa himself said: “Do unto others what you would want them to do unto you. If you were living on the street would you want someone to give you money?”
There are many stories of his generosity. There were students who were suffering from financial hardships. MCKS would offer them money. In 2006 MCKS released a new book during the World Conversion at Mumbai. There were some people who couldn’t afford to buy the book. MCKS said that people who don’t have money can have the book for free. A Pranic Healer suffered a major setback when a family member met with a major accident and they didn’t have money to pay the hospital bills. MCKS send the person money immediately and the medical expenses were taken care of.
These are just a few first hand examples. Speak to those students who were fortunate enough to spend time with MCKS while he was there in his physical body. You will hear of many such stories.
Pranic Healers are taught to take care of other Pranic Healers and non-Pranic Healers. It does not matter if they are family members or complete strangers.
Because that is the right thing to do. Because loving kindness and compassion knows of no boundaries.
As you spiritually develop you will notice that something fundamentally changes within. As you practice the Meditation on the Twin Hearts more and more, heal other people, do service towards others; then you reach a point where you cannot NOT help another person who is in need. It doesn’t matter who it is. You cannot sit and watch the other person suffer. This is but a tiny reflection of how we were taught by the Teacher.
The Teacher taught we need to “Serve, Serve, and Serve.”
The Birthday Gift for Master
The best birthday gift you can give MCKS on his birthday is by serving. There are may ways to serve.
- Feeding someone who is hungry is a form of service.
- Healing people who are in pain and are suffering is a form of service.
- Praying for and blessing people who are facing challenges is a form of service.
- Doing the Meditation on the Twin Hearts and blessing the planet Earth and all her beings is a form of service.
- Spreading the teachings of Pranic Healing, Meditation on the Twin Hearts, Superbrain Yoga, and Arhatic Yoga is also a form of service given that you are helping other transform their lives.
If you would really like to give a gift to Master on his birthday then look for opportunities to serve.
