In Constant Remembrance Of God

To remember God constantly is true devotion. A short story from the Hindu mythology reveals the truth.

Sage Narada, the great devotee of Mahavishnu was dying when the Lord appeared to him and asked if he wanted anything.

Narada replied that in his next birth he wished to be born an atheist.

It was a shock indeed to the Lord.

He asked Narada the reason for the peculiar wish, for Narada was such a devotee who kept singing the Lord's praise with fervent devotion.

Narada replied “Although I am a devotee, I have seen the atheists thinking more of you. In fact they are obsessed with you. I do not want to forget you for a single moment. While you are only an aspect in my mind, you seem to be the whole heart of the atheist. Though he is against your existence, he remembers you !"

Osho says that the theist and an atheist both sail in the same boat. Both remember the Lord while accepting and denying.
