‘Young, free and single’.

These three words best describe

the mentality of today’s youth.

They are at a delicate transition

in their lives, expected by society

to be responsible and yet by that

same society trusted with

sponsibilities or allowed to think

for themselves. It is a period

where they have to leave their

childhood dreams and accept the

realities of life. If we can learn to

trust them, to respect their views,

to treat them as the young adults

they are - and at the same time

still love them as we did when

they were children, then may be

they will be able to accept these

realities and take on the task to

improve the world we live in.

If not, they may rebel against

society and in effect, against us.

We can see Swamishri preparing

yesterday’s children to become

tomorrow’s leaders...

Questions posed by college students.
    Question 2
Some youths from Jodhpur, Rajasthan came to visit Swamishri...

Youth : If we all begin to worship God from childhood, when will we be able to enjoy life’s pleasures?

Swamishri : Life is not meant for the enjoyment of such pleasures. However, we do not say, ‘sit here all day and do nothing.’ In fact you should live and work in society, but only enough to meet your needs. But our goal is not to attach ourselves to worldly pleasures. We have to worship God from childhood because when we become old, our eyes will no longer be able to see, our ears will no longer be able to hear, our legs will no longer be able to support us. Then how will we be able to do bhajan? Whereas in our youth we have the energy and strength to be able to do bhajan.

(30 October 1985, Amdavad)
