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 Sadhu.
    Travellers On The Journey Of Life
    From all walks of life

On a normal day, Pramukh Swami Maharaj meets men from all walks of life... lawyers, celebrities and even fishermen! There are those who have known him for years, and those who for the first time come to meet him in search of guidance...

Wherever we look we see evil flourishing. Those who stand up for righteousness and justice are often viciously put down and made to suffer. In such circumstances how can one be expected to keep faith in dharma?

Swamishri : Death will always do its job of spreading hardship and suffering. In this Kaliyug, those who are bad are made out to be great. But be sure, in the end, truth always wins. Bearing that in mind, one should live one's life according to dharma. Those who are wrong, for a time may seem to be famous and influential in society, but when their time comes they all fall, after which no one even remembers their names. Money obtained by deceit and cheating won’t help a man sleep at night. On the other hand, a person who earns his food with good, honest labour, even if he only gets a rotlo to eat, it will taste sweet to him, and that sweetness will reach deep into his heart.

Should politics be guided by dharma?

Swamishri : Definitely. Without dharma there can never be peace in the Government.

I am referring to the current problems concerning the role of dharma in politics.

Swamishri : A life devoid of dharma is empty and meaningless. Any dharma which incites one to hurt others is of no benefit to man. Today’s problems are not God’s doing, but the Government’s. There is such a tussle for votes. If they all co-operated with each other all problems would be solved. Instead, the public has to suffer due to the internal disputes between the politicians.

(20 April 1993, Surat)
