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.
On The Journey Of Life
who call him Bapa...
To a disciple, the guru is the doorway to redemption. However, on
the path to realisation would be aspirant has to endure the trials
and tribulations of life. Who can he turn to for help? Except to
he whom he calls Bapa...
While we sit in your presence we experience divinity all around
and everything seems perfect (nirgun). But when we step outside,
it all disappears.
Swamishri : By sitting here daily, the feeling of divinity will
become permanent. Only God is perfect (nirgun) and through Him we
can become perfect. Look at the neem tree in Gadhada. People bow
before it because God has touched it. They even bow to the Lord's
clothes and wooden sandals. Normally these are all perishable, but
because the Lord used them they have become divine. Thus without
performing any other endeavours, by simply becoming Gods devotees,
we too become perfect. If we seek refuge in God, keep a firm conviction
of His divinity and realise Him to be perfect; then we become free
of all evil attributes, we become - in a word - perfect. But if
we see maya in God, how can we ever be freed from the maya in ourselves?
But sometimes God and the Pragat Satpurush behave in such a manner
that one finds it difficult to keep such divyabhav.
Swamishri : Thats what we must make firm in our hearts. If
one keeps firm, steadfast, unyielding divyabhav, then one experiences
the bliss of Akshardham.
