The Real Meaning of Surrender

What exactly is surrender? It is giving you entirely to God. It is the silent power that may never reply to your prayers and calls, without expectations. And, it’s placing yourself at His feet. It’s like becoming a flower, or the flame, or the fruit you usually offer to Him. How can we surrender to God?

As well as, divinity can be achieved only when the body, the mind, and the spirit are all completely surrendered at the Lotus feet of the God. It is becoming the offering, rather than the offered, the sacrifice rather than the sacrifice. In that sacred ritual, you do not offer mantras, but only your silence.

Develop a friendship with God

To give you entirely, unconditionally and absolutely to God is surrender. So, when you attaining that state, you should first develop a friendship with God.

Actually, surrender is a way of appreciating God, of loving him, of expressing yourself to him. It does not indicate you work towards changing your circumstances. It means you accept the outcome as His grace. There is something unique about acceptance ­and it gives one strength and peace.

How to do?

In the state of surrender, you notice very clearly what needs to be done, and you take action, doing one thing at a time and focusing on one thing at a time. Learn from nature. See how everything gets accomplished and how the miracle of life unfolds without dissatisfaction or unhappiness.

It means you open yourself to lives many opportunities and challenges without conditions, preference, fear or choice. As well as, you will offer yourself to become an instrument in the hands of God and dedicate your life to His cause. It is true surrender.

Mamtamai Shree Rashe Guru Maa says, “When you truly surrender, you make peace with Death and watch its devouring power without fear and aversion.”
