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 Saint.
    Travellers On The Journey Of Life
    Those 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...

How can we develop perfect nirvikalpa nischay?

Swamishri : By developing intense affection and oneness with the Satpurush we automatically reach such a state. Apart from that, there is no need for any other endeavour.

When do we develop such affection?

Swamishri : If we can realise that only he can lead us to redemption, that he is the all-doer who inspires us in all our activities, that he is the giver of moksha, then we will automatically develop a strong bond with him. Our ‘selfishness' for the Satpurush also helps. Just as we love our family because we know that only they will give us food and clothing, if we can realise that only the Satpurush will give us redemption, then because of our ‘selfishness' we build deep attachment to him.
As long as we consider ourselves to be the body, there will always be a distance between the Satpurush and ourselves. But if we can believe him to be our true form, then instantly we become one with him.
However, it will take time to remove our age-old perception of being the body. So in the meantime just keep on doing Satsang.
