was Raja. She was very clever, too, but only when her father
gave her a reward. If
there was a battle or contest of who could be the
best, her desire to participate
increased especially if others would hear of
her honor and praise her feats.
Tama was the
name of the youngest sibling. This one always got into a
lot of trouble, but seemed to
find excuses by blaming his older brother and
sister. Also, he was very
cunning, and sometimes even told fibs.
It came to pass one
day when Satva, Raja, and Tama became young adults
that their father asked them to
take a journey into the desert. This was an
honor that could only come from
their father, yet even before the adventure
began there was a problem in
place where everything was freely given. The children were now
young adults, but had not one
care in the world. The only one that
appreciated this generous state
of being was Satva.

playmates sometimes have tears
because of what they call sorrow. Stories I
hear of unworldly misery.
There are even people that take without asking.
You tell us about love, but why

What so many call suffering is
a way by which people or souls learn. You
have been blessed with
compassion. Use it to delve into reasons behind the
mysteries of life.
Remember that God is just, but He sees more than what we
can see. Sometimes we get
caught in our own little stories. It is like the
ant that wanted to get out of
the glass, and the boy who wanted the ant to
stay there. We have our
own motives, but the more we grow, the more we let
go, and allow God to guide us.”
gaze went into another time. He remember himself asking all
these questions, and was glad
that Satva had thirst for more than what made
Satva happy. He really
was beginning to care about what happened to the
this talk,” the father declared. “Prepare for the journey

strength to let go.
Perhaps when you get there you will hear the stillness
and understand why we all must
evolve, and grow into better humans.”
Raja had no
interest in what her father was saying. She waved at him as
she danced into the flower
garden. Raja was out of hearing distance when her
father asked her to pack more
supplies than her own needs would demand.
Tama was not
pleased with his father. He wanted to stay home and play
soccer with his pals. So,
he pretended that he was sick, thinking this would
fool his father. Tama
walked in a stoop as if he was too ill to greet his father.

Period. End of

to make his decision.
At about 5

began its rise in the eastern

started their journey into the

they had reached the heart of the desert. They made a small
fire, and sat around it for
warmth. The desert was a strange place because
during the day it was very hot,
but at night it was rather cool.
Raja took it for granted that Satva would provide for their
needs, so when he refused to
give them blankets to keep warm, they both
pleaded with their father.

Satva’s frustration. He
is practically a man. Soon he will find a nice
young lady for a wife and
become the head of his household. He is tired of
covering for your own
irresponsible behavior and careless mistakes. But,
Satva, remember compassion,
even if it is for your brother and sister. As for
you, Raja, learn to give more
than just to yourself. Name and fame will only
take you further from the
truth. You see your oldest brother. Take after
some of his qualities, and
begin to listen to your father.
Tama, your deceit only will
make your life harder and close your heart to
all the possibilities.
You are a bright young man. Don’t throw your life
away for what may seem easy

from each other, and you will
succeed. Share because love cannot be

treasure to be given and received.”

enough to both say, “Thank
you.” This had never happened before. Satva was
glad. Perhaps they all
could become friends.

This is not an easy task, but I have been blessed with
copies of something that
changed the world.
A son of God received these Revelations

As a matter of fact, your names come from inside
of this sacred book. Do
you know what Satva, Raja, and Tama mean? Well, I
give each of you a copy.
May you gain wisdom, compassion, and submit to the
Lord. Now my work is

share your knowledge, and love
even those that try to bring you sorrow.

Satva, Raja, and Tama departed from the desert. Each had a
