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
    Knights Of The Faith...

For thousands of years in Indian culture there has been the tradition of surrendering one’s self to the guru. Even in today’s modern society the tradition still lives. One can see young graduates renouncing the world to became sadhus for a place at Swamishri’s feet. To them he is everything. Through his teachings and inspirations they become the next generation of knights, albeit gentle, of the faith, defending and sustaining the ancient culture and spirituallity of India against the evils of today’s materialistic society.

Nirbhaycharan Swami : How can we imbibe the qualities which are present in you?

Swamishri : Read Vachanamritam Gadhada I/67. Always bear that in mind. Also what does Maharaj tell us in Vachanamritam Gadhada I/9? We should not desire to see Akshardham or anything in it. By meeting Maharaj we’ve attained everything. Seeing Him we’ve seen the Abode and all the liberated souls. We should keep an unflinching conviction that we have nothing left to attain. Then we shall never feel unfulfilled or as if we’ve missed out.

But we remain under the influence of the three gunas all day.

Swamishri : They will always be there. But we can be immune to their influence by obeying the agna of the Satpurush at any time, any place, anywhere. By following his agna we become atmasattarup - as the atma, not the body. But beware never to find faults in our seniors. We doubt Swami by thinking, ‘Swami did this because someone convinced him to.’ To feel that Swami acts upon someone else’s advice means we feel that Swami has shortcomings.

(25 October 1989, Gondal)
