Searching Question Fulfilling Answer
Each person struggles through

live. 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 Saint.
    Travellers On The Journey Of Life
    Those who call him Bapa...

To a disciple, the guru is the doorway to redemption. However, on the path to realisation would be aspirant has to endure the trials and tribulations of life. Who can he turn to for help? Except to he whom he calls Bapa...

Aspirant : I believe that the study of the scriptures is a must, yet why does God not give us the enthusiasm to read them?

Swamishri : Of course God gives us such enthusiasm. Janak was a king, yet despite all his royal duties he was still able to live as a devotee. God should always be predominant in each and every activity one is engaged in. When we develop such knowledge, then no matter how engrossed we are in worldly activities, we remain unhampered by any obstacles which may come our way.

Why does all this take so long?

Swamishri : What? Should our endeavours be concluded so simply? It takes time. We should keep persevering. Eventually we will reach enlightenment. Keep faith and be patient, but never give up.
