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.

    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...

Dolatbhai (Devotee) : In this world, what is the greatest sin one can commit?

Swamishri : Shriji Maharaj has told us that to believe God as nirakar is the most atrocious crime. There is no sin worse than that. Because God exists, we exist. When one does not realise that, it is a terrible sin.

What is the punishment for committing such a sin?

Swamishri : Misery. One is made to suffer the tortures of births and deaths. God’s form is divine; there are no exceptions. It is a terrible insult to perceive Him to be nirakar. He smiles, He talks; He walks; everything He does is divine, wonderful and heart rendering. Whatever He does, He does for the benefit of others, not Himself. When He accepts gifts and praise from His devotees, He does not do so out of vanity or greed, but rather to encourage bhakti within us so that we develop affection for Him.
