What should we do to have
a continuous stream of
bliss in our lives?
explains to us today.
You may undertake any number of spiritual
practices, but never forget God's name even
for a moment. Never do anything that will take
you away from God. You can achieve anything
through prayer. You need not pray loudly; it is
enough if you pray mentally. God resides in
your heart and listens to all your prayers. If you
aspire to attain His grace, contemplate on Him
incessantly. Worldly difficulties come and go.
Do not attach much importance to them.
Through prayer one can overcome any difficul-
ty. Only God's grace is true and everlasting,
strive to attain it. Chant the name of God day
in and day out. That alone will protect you at all
times. Just as air is all pervasive, God is pres-
ent in you, with you, around you, below you,
above you. Hence be in constant communion
with Him. When you develop faith in Divinity,
you will naturally have unity. Consequently,
there will be no scope for enmity.
Through prayer and contemplation on God,
you must try to control the evil qualities in
you. - Baba

Residents of Duncan Village, San
Fernando, were awakened when thick,
black smoke filled the air early
yesterday morning, forcing them to
evacuate their homes and run out into
the streets. The smoke was from the
fire that destroyed K Maharaj and Sons

When the T&TGuardian visited the
scene yesterday, one resident,
recounted his experience.
"I heard a noise about half one, then
the place just full up with smoke," she
said. "We had to leave the house and
run, all my neighbours had to run too."
The woman said worried residents
rushed to rescue pets and other
animals from the smoke, lining the
street for hours, as fire fighters battled

side of the road, there were sick people,
people with their little children and even
