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...
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
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 dont
turn to anyone else.
Why is it that its easy to keep divyabhav in the Lords
Swamishri : We can keep divyabhav in the murtis, because
a murti remains a murti. It doesnt say anything, it doesnt
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 its in Satsang
where we cant 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.
