Topic - Excerpt from Divine Discourse
The Universal Prayer

Every human being has four birthdays. The first is when he emerges from his mother's womb and, being neither holy nor unholy, craves only for food and shelter; the second Is when he begins his spiritual study to lead him from darkness to light; the third is when he has gained wisdom, having mastered the disciplines propounded by the rishis for achieving self-realisation; the fourth and last is when he realises his true identity and merges with Brahman.
