THE AGHAMIC PRAYER
“Lord, the Creator, the Protector, The ALMIGHTY!
Plant in us, your children, the seed of LOVE that bring PEACE to all mankind.
That PEACE, when it grows will transcend all UNDERSTANDING that will guard our hearts and our minds in you.
Let that UNDERSTANDING grow and branch forth in us with KNOWLEDGE;
The KNOWLEDGE of TRUTH, REVERENCE, and true HUMILTY to all creatures, seen and unseen.
May you allow LORD, that KNOWLEDGE to bud for us a flower of WISDOM;
WISDOM that will guide us in our daily life here on earth. A WISDOM that harm none, that bring forth in us a perfect equilibrium and harmony to all beings.
So that in the end, we may enjoy our life fulfilled and will taste the fruit of the labor of your LOVE in us which is ENLIGHTENMENT.
MAY THE BLESSINGS OF THE ALMIGHTY BE WITH US. IN LOVE AND IN LIGHT!!!
The Aghamic Principles
All religions of the world have preached about heaven and salvation towards mankind. Everyone has its own distinction to one another but at the end, only one result is to be expected. Some have preached about everlasting life, others have taught men about paradise. Whatever or whichever they termed it to be, whether they call it heaven, paradise, everlasting life, samadhi, nirvana, etc… all has its one end, that is to reach the highest peak of human evolution or perfection. For it is said in the scriptures: “Be ye perfect, for I the Lord am perfect”. In Aghama, we have termed the word perfect into Enlightenment.
In this Book I’m going to share to you the Aghamic Principle of Luntiang Aghama Natural Divine Arts Shrine of Healing on its quest to reach the state of enlightenment through the Blessings of Love and Light. But first, let us know what Aghama is all about?
AGHAMA, Religion of Science
Aghama is a sanscrit word which means “religion”. This religion, in its ancient form that aims “to tie up with” or “to be connected with” to its creator; A tie that binds up the creation to its creator, a tie that binds up all beings, animate or inanimate, to Mother Nature herself. It is also like a cord that is connected from the unborn child to its mother inside her womb. The connection that binds the (2) beings into one body; The connection that gives life and nourishment to the unborn while wondering into the dark womb of its mother; A connection that saves life of the unborn child from the possible danger of miscarriage.
Knowledge of Truth
Aghama also mean “science”. It is derived from the Filipino word “agham”. Thus Aghama becomes the religion of science; Science in a sense that our faith is based on the acquisition of knowledge; Knowledge of the fundamental truth about our existence. The truth that only the person who is in quest for it may only know, The truth when the questor find it will hold tight to it, and even die for it because he know that he/she found life on it. Therefore, for an individual, Aghama become “a way of life”. A life that is full of Love and of Light.
The way of Life: in LOVE and in LIGHT
Aghama believes and adheres to the virtues being taught by the Aghamic Prayer; The virtues of Love (compassion), understanding, knowledge, wisdom and divinity. These virtues are what Aghama adheres. They devote their lives on these virtues. By devoting on it, soon they will achieve enlightenment. Aghama believe that a person can be loved, when the lover can understand whom the person he/she will love. In order to understand, one should know whom to understand and why. When a person knows, wisdom will arise. And when the wise act has been performed, the state of Divinity will be achieved.
The Path to Enlightenment
The Aghamic prayer stated that the Creator or the Divine Supreme Being was the first one who initiated the Act of Wisdom to his/her creation. The act of planting the seed of love to mankind was also a generous act of giving that performed by the Supreme Divinity. It is the act, a selfless act of planting the seed of love that makes the creator to be enlightened.
In this prayer, every one of us who believe is encourage doing the same as the creator did. It is the creator who first loves us that made us through to our existence. Therefore, like what the creator did, let us plant the seed of love to everyone; Seen or Unseen; Animate or Inanimate; in our Past; to our Present; and to the Days to come. Let us Plant the Seed of love to one another, in order to taste the fruit of the Labor of Love; that is Enlightenment. And in our Love, may the Light of the Supreme Divine Being (or simply we call the Almighty) guide us in our quest towards Enlightenment.
May the Blessings of the Almighty Shine on us; in love and In Light!!!
