Blessing: May you become a conqueror of Maya and a conqueror of the world by transforming the enemy of the five vices

and making them co-operative.


A victorious soul definitely transforms the form of an enemy. You transform the enemy in the form of vices and make them

co-operative through which they will constantly continue to salute you. Transform the vice of lust into good wishes, anger

into spiritual intoxication, greed into an attitude that is free from temptation, attachment into love and body consciousness

into awareness of the self (pure pride of the self) and you will become a conqueror of Maya and a conqueror of the world.

A completely victorious soul is seen to be an embodiment of the awareness of all three things. However, there is a clear difference in how you maintain your awareness of all three things at the same time. Sometimes you forget to remain aware of one thing, sometimes two, and sometimes you even forget all three. This is why Baba said that He saw some who only had a double tilak of two dots and others who only had a single tilak of one dot. Baba also noticed many very good children who constantly remain aware of all three. They are the ones whose tilak cannot be rubbed off by anyone. When you become an embodiment of remembrance, you will have an imperishable tilak. Otherwise, you repeatedly have to apply the tilak on yourself. You apply the tilak, but the next minute it is rubbed off and you have to put it on again. However, the tilak worn by the Raja Yogis of the confluence age must be imperishable. Maya makes the imperishable perishable. Every morning at amrit vela, check whether the tilak of the awareness of all three that you have put on is imperishable. Then, Maya will not have the courage throughout the whole day to try and rub it off. To be an embodiment of the awareness of all three means to be an embodiment of power. This tilak is power. Your form of power will destroy any wasteful form of Maya that comes in front of you. Then, the five forms of Maya will become your five servants, and your transformed form will be visible.

The vice of lust will change into the form of good wishes and co-operate with you in your efforts. Those who influence you through lust will change into world servers who have good wishes for you. Instead of being your enemies, they will become your friends. The fire of anger that is at present burning all your Godly wealth and making you unconscious with all its strength will transform into spiritual strength and intoxication and revive those who have become unconscious. The vice of anger will transform into the power of tolerance and become a weapon for you. When anger is transformed into a weapon for the power of tolerance, then that weapon constantly serves whoever is holding it. The fire of anger will transform into the fire of yoga! It will not burn you, but will incinerate your sins. In the same way, the vice of greed will transform into the attitude of a trustee, of one who is free from any temptation, of one who is completely beyond and has an attitude of unlimited disinterest. All greed will have vanished so that, instead of constantly saying: “I want this, I want this”, you will become completely innocent of all desires. You would not have the greed to say: “I want this!” (chahiye), but instead you would say, “Go away!” (jaiye). All your taking will transform into constantly giving. Greed will transform into an attitude free from all temptation. You will become the embodiment of a bestower and constantly bestow on others. Similarly, the vice of attachment will no longer attack you. Attachment will transform into love and become your special companion in having remembrance of Baba and in service. Love will become a special means to bring about success in remembrance and service. In the same way, the body-conscious vice of ego will transform into self-respect. Self-respect is the method to make your stage ascend, whereas body consciousness is instrumental in making your stage descend. Your body consciousness will transform into self-respect and become the means for you to remain an embodiment of remembrance. Similarly, all the vices, which means everything in its fierce form, will transform into the form of all the elevated powers and will co-operate with you in service. Do you experience within yourself this power to transform everything? You can transform all five on the basis of the awareness of the three things. Anything that comes to you in the form of lust should transform to good wishes; only then would you receive the title of a conqueror of Maya, and thus win the world. Someone who defeats his enemy would definitely change the status of that one. A defeated king would become one of the ordinary subjects; only then would that winning king be called victorious. Only when an advisory becomes one of your ordinary subjects would you be called victorious. It is the law that when you defeat someone, you take that one as your prisoner; you make that one your slave. However, when you conquer the five vices, you don’t have to make them your prisoners. If you made them your prisoners, then whilst inside they would cause mischief. Instead, you must transform them and make them co-operate with you, and they will then constantly salute you. Before you bring about world transformation, let there be self-transformation. Through your self-transformation, world transformation will become easy. Constantly keep the power of transformation with you. The power of transformation is very important. Baba will tell you later how you should use the power of transformation from amrit vela till night time.

To such Raja Yogi souls who have the tilak of the present time and the royal tilak of their future royalty; to those who constantly maintain the awareness of the three things and thereby remain powerful; to those who, with their elevated power, transform Maya and make her co-operate; to those who are conquerors of Maya and thus win the world; to those who have made all the powers their weapons and constantly have those weapons in their grasp; to such elevated souls, BapDada’s love, remembrance and namaste.
