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.

C.T. Patel : How can one constantly enjoy the bliss of Akshardham?

Swamishri : If one truly understands mahima - the glory of God -, then one will experience eternal bliss. If there’s no such mahima, questions arise in one’s mind such as ‘why did this happen?’ or ‘what’s the point of this?’ But if we have mahima, we never get such doubts. Then we only see good in all, young and old, and we experience peace. Without mahima, even if we possess all other good qualities, we will never be content. The Saint we have met is not of this world. If we can keep this one thought fixed in our mind, we will be happy forever.

Kanubhai Amin : Does one attain such happiness by the grace of the Satpurush or by one’s own efforts?

Swamishri : Only by grace.

Gaurang (Devotee) : How does time pass in Akshardham?

Swamishri : Everything is automatic. You never realise the passing of time Akshardham. You just experience everlasting bliss. And just as you never get tired of watching videos, there, Maharaj’s image is constantly on the video.
