Fire is not the loser if ignored

Sree Sree Guru Gaurangau Jayatah!

In this modern age of materialism people mostly disbelieve the existence of God, `Ishwar’ on the ground— that which cannot be comprehended by the gross and subtle senses is unreal and fictitious. In reply to this question of the disbelievers of God, His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad 108 Sri Srimad Bhakti Dayita Madhav Goswami Maharaj in one of His branch Math at Krishnagar, Dt. Nadia (West Bengal), impressively made him understand by his own words. That student when asked why he took admission at Krishnagar College for getting higher education, he could have got it in his own house. The student replied, my revered father admitted me in the Krishnagar College for higher education because the professors of that college were very learned. Maharaj immediately asked that student, “You have submitted to the professors for getting higher education, that means that you are accepting a person superior to you in education. What is the meaning of `Ishwar’? `Ishwar’ or God means One who has got dominating power and has got wealth. We are accepting in every sphere higher qualified persons to be enriched by them, as for example, a person who wants proficiency in wrestling, submits to a wrestler; one who wants to get money, submits to a rich person. When you are accepting small Gods in every sphere, why you should hesitate to submit to the Almighty, Who can protect us and maintain us in all circumstances. If we ignore fire, fire will not lose anything, we shall be deprived of the utility of fire. Supreme Lord is Absolute, Infinite and Complete Reality. If we do not accept Him, He will lose nothing but we shall be deprived of being protected and maintained by Him. `Om purnamadah purnamidam purnat purnamudacyate purnasya purnamadaya purnamevavasisyate’ (Ishopanishad)—If you subtract Purna from Purna the remainder will be Purna, it will not be zero. As per Higher Differential Calculus Mathematics, Infinite minus Infinite is also Infinite.
