As the cricket season rages in Dubai, let us liken life to this popular sport. Play the game of life with caution, in God’s wonderful company if you want to save yourself from defeat, misery and agony say the BRAHMA KUMARIS

Life is like a thrilling game of cricket

In which, any time, you may lose your wicket.

If you play it with God’s wonderful company,

He will save you from defeat, misery and agony.

Negative & waste thoughts are your opponent in this game’s 50-50 over format,

Hit the ball of problems with your self-confidence bat.

With great footwork, timing and shot selection,

Play all deliveries with care and complete perfection.

Lust, anger, greed, attachment, ego are the weak thoughts thinktank,

Wear the costume of soul-consciousness to defend yourself from their attack.

As time is running out and overs are becoming less,

Build a strong partnership with God and feel ever confident and fresh.

He is always there to guide from the non-striker’s end,

Build a massive score of good deeds with help of God, the Friend.

Let the virtues of purity, peace, love, tolerance, patience plunder more runs,

And remember God, the Supreme Coach, and his tips to win the game of life with fun.

Now get the ball of opportunities; swing it in all directions,

Maintain accuracy and pace, with attention and divine interactions.

Use the armour of Supreme Coach’s elevated protection,

Receive the blessings of God and everyone to win man-of-the-match selection.

Brahma Kumaris is the largest spiritual organisation in the world led by women. It was the founder, Prajapita Brahma Baba, who chose to put women in the forefront. Founded in India in 1937, Brahma Kumaris has spread to over 140 countries and has had an extensive impact in many sectors as an international NGO. However, their real commitment is to helping individuals transform their perspective of the world from material to spiritual.
