For decades Swamishri has been

guiding others towards God.

Inspiring them in times of

hardship; consoling them in

times of sadness, he has been a

constant source of light in their

lives when there has been only

engulfing darkness. But what

has been his source of inspiration

over the years? How has he

managed to remain composed

during incidents of both honour

and insult? What drives him to

push himself night and day in the

service of others? Delving into

the depths of his heart we find

the source of his light...
    His Source of Light
    The World Through His Eyes

Swamishri has met many different people from all over the world. How does he see all these people...
    Question 1

Ghanshyamcharan Swami : If you are trying to convince someone and they remain stubborn and don’t accept what you say, then do you lose your temper?

Swamishri : What will we achieve by losing our temper? We try to talk to them but if they don’t listen, then we have to step down! After all we are God’s devotees and so is he!

What if after listening to two parties’ grievances, you try to make a settlement between them but neither is willing to compromise. Then do you get angry?

Swamishri : We try our best to make both parties understand, but if neither of them does, then only they will have to suffer.

What if someone doesn’t accept what you say, yet he still stands in front of you for darshan. What do you feel when you see him?

Swamishri : If he doesn’t accept it or understand it, then what can we do? If he is not satisfied today, how will he be satisfied tomorrow? Sooner or later he will realise his ignorance. Our faults can hinder us anytime, anywhere. We will only ever be happy if we remove our faults. As for him, he will realise his faults in his own time, but I never develop a dislike for him.

(29 December 1985, Dudhvada)
