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...

While we sit in your presence we experience divinity all around and everything seems perfect (nirgun). But when we step outside, it all disappears.

Swamishri : By sitting here daily, the feeling of divinity will become permanent. Only God is perfect (nirgun) and through Him we can become perfect. Look at the neem tree in Gadhada. People bow before it because God has touched it. They even bow to the Lord's clothes and wooden sandals. Normally these are all perishable, but because the Lord used them they have become divine. Thus without performing any other endeavours, by simply becoming God’s devotees, we too become perfect. If we seek refuge in God, keep a firm conviction of His divinity and realise Him to be perfect; then we become free of all evil attributes, we become - in a word - perfect. But if we see maya in God, how can we ever be freed from the maya in ourselves?

But sometimes God and the Pragat Satpurush behave in such a manner that one finds it difficult to keep such divyabhav.

Swamishri : That’s what we must make firm in our hearts. If one keeps firm, steadfast, unyielding divyabhav, then one experiences the bliss of Akshardham.
