‘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...
    Swamishri With Youth

Every student faces a dilemma. He has to achieve a balance between the demands made upon him. The tension of exams, the pressure from the family to excel and of course, the temptations of society. Whatever he does, right or wrong, is ultimately reflected in his results. Teaching them the formulae and calculations of life, Swamishri educates them in how to survive in and out of the classroom...

    Question 2
With medical students...

Swamishri : All of you must keep Satsang. Stay within our niyam-dharma and don’t pick up any addictions. We should lead a pure and simple life in which we can serve the people. We don’t want to become second rate doctors. We should study hard so we can be worthy of serving our country. Basically keep God in the forefront of all that you do and don’t become obsessed with earning money. If our earnings increase, then we waste our life in idle pursuits and in buying unnecessary luxuries. But if we lead a decent life, then even if we are millionaires we won’t have any problems. We should always seek refuge in God, whether we hold the most dignified position in the entire world or live in a small hut. And finally, pray to God every day.

Why can’t we realise the greatness of extraordinary men in their own lifetime?

Swamishri : We can only see in them what is in us. When we look at them we only see a reflection of our own faults and shortcomings. But no matter how we see them, they are pure. We have deficiencies but they don’t. We should understand this greatness.

(17 March 1991 Bhadra)
