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...

Why is it that the divyabhav which we have for Satsang, the Satpurush and the images in the beginning when we enter seems to deteriorate over time?

Swamishri : Our divyabhav lessens because of our evil instincts. We perceive ourselves to be this body; hence we see faults in the Satpurush and the devotees. This destroys our divyabhav. Only when we eradicate our own faults will we be able to keep divyabhav towards others.
The Satpurush has to redeem everyone and he never forgets that. He is always thinking as to how he can help souls. He may call someone and ignore you, at times he may even scold you, but in his eyes he sees everyone as equal. Because of our bad instincts, we feel that, ‘Why does he talk to that person and not me?’. He does not have any such discrimination. Thus we must definitely keep divyabhav towards the Satpurush. Outwardly he may not seem divine but Shriji Maharaj is always in his heart; be absolutely sure of that. He is the Pragat Satpurush and he is right here in front of you, nothing can change that. So keep your mind fixed on Shriji Maharaj, Swami and the Pragat Satpurush. But don’t turn to anyone else.

Why is it that it’s easy to keep divyabhav in the Lord’s murti?

Swamishri : We can keep divyabhav in the murtis, because a murti remains a murti. It doesn’t say anything, it doesn’t scold us or criticise our bad qualities. So there is no question of losing divyabhav in them.
Whatever is worthwhile in life is in Satsang, but it’s in Satsang where we can’t keep divyabhav. Only when we earn the grace of the Satpurush, when we can dispel the illusion of being this body, will we be able to keep divyabhav in all things.

What greatness did you see in Yogiji Maharaj?

Swamishri : [after pausing for thought and answering slowly] Yogiji Maharaj is a true Saint. Maharaj resides within him fully. He is the form of Shriji Maharaj. Shriji Maharaj resides in every part of his body. He beholds Shriji Maharaj in his heart. In Akshardham Shriji Maharaj resides as Himself, but here he is one with Swami.
