Searching Question Fulfilling Answer
A counsellor - “How can I

convince my child to...”

A visionary - “Who was I in my

past life...”

A psychologist - “How can I cope

with the guilt...”

A friend in need - “Why did God

take my son and not me...”

A guru - “How can I progress

on the spiritual path...”

The many roles of Swamishri.

Sometimes we can catch a glimpse

of all these within the space of

just a few hours. He opens his

doors to the world, and for those

who walk in, he opens the doors of

their hearts, letting in light where

there was once darkness.
    The Meaning Of Life
    How Do I Fin d Peace...?
    Question 3

Raghunandan Modi (Industrialist) : If God wanted to punish me, why didn’t He take me instead of my son? [upon the recent death of his only son in an accident]

Swamishri : It’s not like that. Everyone comes with their own destiny. His destiny was probably fulfilled. His relationship with you was fulfilled and so he returned to God.

How can I make the pain go away?

Swamishri : Do bhakti. We should forget the past. This is called ‘sankhya vichar’. It teaches us, ‘Janamya tya thi jarur jano, marvanu chhe mathe ji...’ (Know that from birth, death is hovering above our heads). It’s a fact that we will all die some day, so we shouldn’t be grief filled about it. Even when God incarnated on this earth, when His time was up He returned to His abode.
