Let's Pray God as Life Is Not Permanent on Earth

Each person that is born on this earth has a specific lifetime & age before that person disappears from the stage earth. No one is immortal & has ever stayed permanently on this earth. But we all become so much involved & busy in our life on this earth that we all forget that one day we all have to leave this earth, leave this body. Our Life is not permanent on this earth & it is for a limited period of time after which it shall pass away. So we all should know the real purpose of life & should not let God slip out of our mind & life anytime, as He only shall save us during this life & also after this life.

Life is aptly described in below lines of the Persian Poet, 'Omar Khayyam' :

'Lo! some we loved, the loveliest and the best
That time and fate of all their Vintage prest,
Have drunk their Cup a Round or two before,
And one by one crept silently to Rest. '
'Omar Khayyam'

Lo, here were all those our near & dear one's, whom we loved the most & are gone now. Wine of life that used to flow through their mortal body has gone. Time & fate (karmic law of cause & effect) has acted in their case & after drinking a Cup or two (of life), they have departed from this earth & have died a short or long before us. So shall be the fate of our self also & we shall too some day depart after drinking a Cup or two.
So instead of letting time & fate rule our destiny & lead us to death, why not let God immortalize us. So let's pray to God daily, know Him daily so that God can bless us with the immortality. Lord Krishna says in Bhagwat Gita :

"sarva-karmany api sada
kurvano mad-vyapasrayah
mat-prasadad avapnoti
sasvatam padam avyayam" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Eighteen verse 56)

"Lord Sri Krishna says: O Arjuna, Though engaged in all kinds of activities, My pure devotee, under My protection, reaches the Eternal and Imperishable abode by My grace."

"ananya-cetah satatam
yo mam smarati nityasah
tasyaham sulabhah partha
nitya-yuktasya yoginah" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Eight verse 14)

"Lord Sri Krishna says: O Arjuna, Whosoever, always & constantly remembers Me with undivided mind; by that person, I am easy to obtain, O Arjuna, because of his constant engagement in the devotional service to Me."

So just see what's on your mind most of the time. It might be your daily affairs, your family etc. but God might be missing from your life. It is always good for a person that he does not let God slip out of his mind, anytime in his life. The person who does not forget the God in life, bids fair to realize Him in this very birth.

So Let's pray to God always as life is not permanent on this earth. Let's pray Him so that He can bless us in this & after life. Loving & praying God can only save us from all type of miseries.

Jai Sri Krishna
