Thoughts on Easter - 04.04.2010
« on: April 04, 2010, 10:47:00 AM »
Gospel according to St. Luke:


1. Very early on Sunday morning, the women went to the tomb,
carrying the spice that they had prepared. 2. When they found
the stone rolled away from the entrance, 3. they went in.  But they
did not find the body of Lord Jesus, 4. and they did not know what
to think.  Suddenly two men in shining white clothes stood beside
them. 5. The women were afraid and bowed to the ground.  But
the men said: "Why are you looking in the place of the dead for
someone who is alive? 6.  Jesus is not here! He has been raised
from death. Remember that while he weas still in Galilee, he told
you, 7.  "The son of Man will be handed over to sinners who will
nail him to a cross.  But three days later he will rise to life."
8.  Then they remembered what Jesus had said.  9-10  Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and some other women were the ones who had gone to the tomb.  When they
returned, they told the eleven disciples and the others what had
happened. 11.  The apostles thought it was all nonsense, and they would not believe.  12.  But Peter ran to the tomb.  And when he
stooped down and looked in, he saw only the burial clothes.  Then he returned, wondering what had happened.

(Later the disciples met Jesus in the village of Emmaus near Jerusalem!  Jesus asked:  "What do you mean, you were telling that I do not know what was happening there in Jerusalem during the last few days."  The two disciples answered:  From what they told us in Jerusalem, we know that Jesus was a powerful prophet, who
pleased God and all the people... Jesus then led his disciples out to Bethany where he raised his hands and blessed them.  As he was doing this, he left and was taken up to the heaven.)

On this day of resurrection of Jesus, the son of Man, let us pray to the son of Siva, Bhagavan Ramana to do what would please Him and love all the people.

Happy Easter, with hot cross buns!

Arunachala Siva.
