The Greater The Trial, The Greater The Reward
Delivered by Baba to Yogi. M.K.Spencer
On 17th November 1952
The darkest cloud has a silver lining. The pall of dark night is lifted up when the sun
shines in all its brightness and glory. Even if the struggle be hard, why be sad and
gloomy? For, is not God, your Father, near you, to befriend you? Keep your mind still
like the waters of the deep lake. Stand firm like a rock and shrink not if calamities pour
on you, like a hurricane. The greater the trial, the greater the reward; the greater the
mystery, the greater the happiness, that must follow like the sunny day, when the
night is over.
Stain not your mind or body with impurity. Walk in the path of rectitude, with love for
all-smile for a kick and forgiveness to all. Make that the ideal of your life, if you wish to
win the race and come out triumphant from the struggle of life.
Hatred, malice, revenge, jealousy, bigotness, pride, greed, lust, sloth- these are the
companions of satan. Love, purity,righteousness, gentility,, humility,tolerance,forbearance,
broad-mindness,contentedness, culture, labour,sincerity,loyalty,one-mindness-these are
the fragrant flowers that grow in the garden of God. Make a bouquet of them and carry it
with you, for each flower is reminiscent of God's glory and a remembrancer of His kingdom.
Make virtue your crown and vice a footstand , to trample it under your feet. Be a master ,
not a slave of your mind, body and senses.
