We are all HIJACKED !
Don’t most of us become fearful on hearing news about Flights being Hijacked by Terrorists ?
That’s because these terrorists are a bunch of Malicious People who are ‘Hell bent’ on not letting you reach your Intended Destination for which you boarded the flight , and who can cause you harm to any extent , even blowing the Aircraft Up , if their demands are not met .
Historically , The Only way such Hijack Attempts  have been successfully thwarted are by quietly sneaking in Sharp shooter Commandoes OR SNIPERS who have the ability to Shoot only at the Terrorists ( amidst all chaos ) , while protecting the civilian passengers .
The Higher Truths about our Own Self as revealed in all the Scriptures in all religions , is that we are not this external Body that we see everyday in the Mirror , but we are the Spiritual Spark Of life ,The SOUL , which is Part and Parcel of God . The Soul sees through the eyes , Hear through the Ears, tastes Through the tongue .
The Bhagvad Gita explains that the Living Entity is roaming in this material universe by riding on this biological machine called as a material body .
So our Body, especially the Human Body , is the aircraft that is capable of taking the Soul out of this material universe , to its Real destination , and that is the Spiritual World .
But having boarded this Flight, it has been Hijacked by Terrorists , which are none other than our Senses and Our mind . Under the Influence of the Illusionary energy of the Lord , These Terrorists are Hell Bent on not Letting the soul reach its intended destination after entering the aircraft of the Human Body .
Our Senses and Mind continuously keeps us distracted with unlimited desires and plans and hankerings . They make us struggle for many many things , and thus diverts our focus from the Real Purpose of Human Life, which is to Purify our Consciousness and Transcend this Material World .
Like Terrorists, the Mind and Senses are so malicious, that it can harm the Soul to any extent and even blow up the aircraft ( harm the body ) by repeatedly engaging in things that are not only detrimental to us spiritually, but also to our physical and mental health .
The Only way to escape this unfortunate situation for our real Self , the SOUL, is to let the SNIPERS of the Holy Names of the Lord , to sneak in through our ears, and let Them Attack the Out of Control Mind and the Senses, and eradicate the Negative side of it , without needing to eliminate them .
Even with Little Faith, if we Chant the Holy Names of the Lord, on a daily Basis  , per instructions given by the Spiritual Masters , We will allow the Commandoes of the Holy Names to Bring our ‘Nasty Side’ under Control , and in fact, rescue us from this Hijacking, and Let our Soul reach Its Intended Destination of the Spiritual Abode of our REAL Father and Mother .
On  a daily Basis , Please chant this Mantra “ Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare , Hare Ram Hare Ram Ram Ram Hare Hare’ , on beads .
Chanting 108 times makes one Complete Round .
These 16 words are like the Team of the Best Commandos, especially tailored to tame the Terrorists of This Age .
The More we can dedicate some time for this ‘military operation ‘  daily , the more we perform the Clean up job .  Start by chanting 4 rounds daily , and aim to reach 16 rounds of the Attentive Chanting of  the Mahamantra on a Daily basis .
This spiritual practice will set your aircraft free of the Hijack, and Your Aircraft will Soar High and fast towards its Ultimate Destination !
