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.
On The Journey Of Life
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) : How can one recognise God?
Swamishri : Only the Satpurush can help us to recognise God because
only he has fully realised Paramatma. The jiva forever questions
the actions of God. Because man has the preconception that He
is God, so He should be like this...and He shouldnt be like
that.... But when God incarnates on earth He does so as a
normal human being. He behaves just like us, eats as we do, drinks
as we do and walks as we do. Only the Satpurush realises His true
form and that, whatever God does, he does so for our benefit.
So only the saint can dispel our doubts. We try to discover God
with our intelligence and logic but realisation of God is beyond
our comprehension. The Saint explains this to us. Thats why
Sant samagam is such a necessity. Not just any Sadhu at that, but
a Sadhu who has understood the scriptures and who is Brahman. Samãgam
of such a Saint is required.
