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...

Does Maharaj dwell in the Pragat Satpurush 100% or only to a certain extent? Does He pervade his entire body?

Swamishri : Yes, Maharaj pervades throughout his whole being.

So then the Gunatit Satpurush is the Sadhu form of Shriji Maharaj?

Swamishri : When God incarnates in the form of a king, He acts like a king, He rules over His kingdom, attends to affairs of the state and even wages war. When He incarnates as a Sadhu, He portrays the characteristics of a Sadhu. However both are forms of God; there is no difference between them. Just as the atma resides in the body, in him resides Paramatma. Thus realising the Satpurush to be the form of Shriji Maharaj we should offer him puja, seva, archa. So, in effect, we will be offering puja and seva to Shriji Maharaj. If we can realise the Pragat Satpurush to be Maharaj’s form, then everything else will pale into insignificance. Only Maharaj and ourselves will remain.

(25 August 1983, Atladra)
