Mantra for Surrender : Mannai Surat
In this world of illusions, frustrations, competition, competence, goal settings, materialism, we feel stressed because of fears and insecurities. When we feel entrapped in false attractions and glamour of the world like a rat in a rattrap, somebody comes and advises us to surrender. Now what is Surrender?
Surrender is not to give up or give in or to accept things when you feel hopeless or helpless & it is also not going against your Self worth and Self-esteem.
Surrender, in fact, is the higher level of self -esteem where our faith and belief in ourselves, our being as part of the One Universe leads us from knowledge to wisdom; it is the Self realisation that I ,as this body, have nothing which, I can say is mine, which is permanently going to be with me, which I can surrender because everything I have including my body is temporary.So how can I surrender? & What to surrender then?
This mantra, “mannai surat hovai man budh” inspires us to experience that higher level of self – esteem and self belief.
This further explains that a person who has faith ,with his perceptive eye, knows and understands that his self-respect/self esteem is only a part of respect and acceptance of the higher order – the perfect plan of One Creator – as One whole, of which each one of us is an integral part – when we know and realise this, we are no more in the bondage of ego, we are free, we don’t get hurt ; we accept the higher Order of Nature – this acceptance is Surrender, this is freedom too and this is the Eternal joy – So let’s chant & connect with the Higher Order…….
