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...

Prof. Ramesh Dave (Devotee) : If God is forever on earth through the Satpurush, then why is it that the knowledge of God disappears? And how is it that such a lineage of Satpurushs also stops?

Swamishri : Maharaj tells us that a jiva can never be destroyed. But by being given the form of an immobile object, for example a mountain or a rock, then it is as good as being destroyed. Thus the jiva cannot attain the knowledge of God. In the same way, the Satpurush and the knowledge of God are always present on earth, but due to circumstances, sometimes that knowledge cannot be preached openly. Then, even in the presence of the Satpurush, such knowledge disappears. After 2 or 5 or maybe even after 10 years when conditions are favourable, it re-appears. Thus we can say that the Satpurush reveals his greatness and knowledge according to circumstances.

(30 October 1989, Gondal)
