Searching Question Fulfilling Answer
Each person struggles through

life. For some the trials are

overpowering, for others a bored

status quo prevails,and

for a minority mountains are

pounded to dust in

the search for meaning and joy.

Within the invisible depths of

each soul there is a yearning.

A need to know ‘Why?’.

‘Why do we live?’,

‘Why do we experience problems?’,

‘Why are we travellers on the

journey of life?’.

In the search for answers to

their uncertainties many turn to

the God-realised Sadhu.
    Travellers On The Journey Of Life
    From all walks of life

On a normal day, Pramukh Swami Maharaj meets men from all walks of life... lawyers, celebrities and even fishermen! There are those who have known him for years, and those who for the first time come to meet him in search of guidance...

Narsinhdas Bangad: Where can one’s heart find tranquillity?

Swamishri: Tulsidas has said: ‘Surpur Narpur Nagpur, ye tin me sukh nahi, ya sukh Hari ke charan me, ya santan ke mahi' (You may look in paradise, on earth or in hell, nowhere will you find happiness. For happiness can only be found at God’s feet or with His chosen Sadhu). Only God and His Sadhu can give us peace. If you keep God in your heart, tranquillity will pervade. By realising God to be the all-doer one experiences tranquillity. A true devotee regards every action of God to be perfect. Every man experiences difficulties in life; one who has not sought refuge in God, he often turns to suicide (in order to escape misery). Whereas, one who has such shelter, he looks to the Satpurush, who in turn gives him the strength and inspiration to keep on going.

Should one pray to God asking for such peace?

Swamishri: Absolutely. Prayer is the only medium through which you can help ease the burden.

(6 April 1986, Kolkata)
