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 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...

Harmanbhai Patel (Devotee) : We believe that God controls everyone and everything, that He is the all-doer. So can’t we assume that when a man commits wrongful deeds, it is in fact God doing it?

Swamishri : No. God only inspires us to do good. When a man does wrong he does so because of his desires. God has given us common sense to know when we are doing right and when we are doing wrong. Despite this, because of our weaknesses we knowingly do wrong. Then it becomes a habit. But in the end, we have to suffer the consequences.

Doesn’t He protect us?

Swamishri : He does, but when? Only if we make a mistake without realising it. If we sin on purpose, He doesn’t protect us.

(6 December 1991, Bochasan)
