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
    Knights Of The Faith...

For thousands of years in Indian culture there has been the tradition of surrendering one’s self to the guru. Even in today’s modern society the tradition still lives. One can see young graduates renouncing the world to became sadhus for a place at Swamishri’s feet. To them he is everything. Through his teachings and inspirations they become the next generation of knights, albeit gentle, of the faith, defending and sustaining the ancient culture and spirituallity of India against the evils of today’s materialistic society.

Sarvamangal Swami : Sometimes whilst working, someone comes and blames us for something which is not our fault. At that time we become so upset that we feel like giving up altogether.

Swamishri : One who is mature will remain unaffected. We have come for God and His Sadhu. Let others speak. A true aspirant who has zeal will always be able to remain composed in such situations.

Bhagvatpriya Swami : How can we realise everyone as Brahman?

Swamishri : First we have to realise ourselves as Brahman. We’ve come into contact with God. So we will attain realisation; if not today, then tomorrow. Because of its connection with God, we bow to the neem tree (in Gadhada), otherwise it’s only a tree. By their association with God, others will improve, no matter how bad their habits are. If we keep that in mind, we shouldn’t have any problems. Even if others are bitter or sour, God will tend to them. We should only be cautious that nothing hinders us in our bhajan, darshan, etc. If it really troubles us, we should tell the appropriate person. But don’t be obstinate and go around gossiping. It’s not proper that we should cause problems for others. Gossip is not seva for Satsang nor does it induce love and affection for Satsang.
