You seem not to understand either. All I want is the clarification: IF ALL IS THE WILL OF GOD. HOW CAN YOU SAY I HAVE EFFORT? I HAVE NO CHOICE. I JUST WANT A CONFIRMATION OR IF NOT WHY.


Yes "All is the will of God ".

Om sarve bhavantu sukhinah (universal prayer)

Om, Sarve bhavantu sukhinaḥ

Sarve santu nirāmayāḥ

Sarve bhadrāṇi paśyantu

Mā kashchit duḥkha bhāgbhavet

Oṁ Shāntiḥ, Shāntiḥ, Shāntiḥ

Meaning in English
   

May all be prosperous and happy

May all be free from illness

May all see what is spiritually uplifting

May no one suffer

Om peace, peace, peace


(mantra taken from Brihadaaranyaka Upanishad 1.4.14)


This mantra is for Peace invocation.  It is intended to be recited for the welfare of humanity as a whole.  The reason it is one of my favorite mantras in Hinduism is simple ? the mantra is the most selfless prayer ever.   You are not asking anything for you by reciting this, but rather the goodwill and welfare of everybody in the world is being prayed for.  If everyone is healthy , auspicious and prosperous we too would be part of the same .

Though I do somewhat believe this and want to, I just don't have a strong conviction.
The debate on fate ( i.e destiny ) v/s free will is a never ending one and there are 3 classes of people :
1) A God fearing person will say  : Man Proposes but God Disposes
2) Atheists /Rationalisats say : Man only proposes and Man only disposes
3) Jnanai says : Nothing every happened .Everything is just a story and stop identifying with the story as the SELF alone is real ,everything else is MITHYA ( Apparent ) .

Decide what suits you best .

Happy New Year 2015 to all the members and forum administrators here . Let the year 2015 be an year of prayer and gratitude and I am sharing below a message of Swami Chidananda , a great saint and senior disciple of Swami Sivananda and the topic is about developing a life of daily prayer and gratitude 


Where God is worshipped every day, there the whole house becomes blessed with the highest prosperity.
All joy, all blessedness, all prosperity comes to that house where God is worshipped regularly. Say thanks when you get up in the morning, for your health, for your body, for a clean mind, for energy in the body to live a life of usefulness to yourself and to all, and in the evening thank God again for the bounty of a good day, for clear weather, fresh air, good health and energy, opportunity to serve and be useful to yourself and to others. If every day there is thanksgiving and you always worship God in your home, there is bound to be prosperity. Where there is worship, in that place, there is the tangible presence of God, and where there is this tangible presence of the Deity, what to say of prosperity ? Everything that is good, everything that is blessed, will pervade that house, will fill that house.Where God is, all auspiciousness, all blessedness, all prosperity is there as a matter of course - just as luminosity is there, radiance is there, where there is light. So, if you wish to fill yourself with prosperity, be worshipful. Do not make the church/Temple alone the place of prayer and worship. Let every house be a centre of prayer. Let every house be the abode of God.

Swami Chidananda
