Swamiji says …
“How do most of us react when we see a tall, handsome man or a fair, beautiful woman ? Aren’t we charmed beyond words? We gush about their looks and long to be like them.”
“Now let us visualise our reaction on seeing a short, ugly, deformed man or a plump, crippled, scarred, dark- complexioned woman! We do not bother to look at them twice , as we do not find them attractive and thus fail to see the anguish in their eyes on being always treated as a sight … grotesque, unwanted and undesirable. At times the sight of a handicapped person could fill us with such revulsion that we curse the moment we had set eyes on him. So strong and powerful is the impact of one’s physical appearance on us…on our senses ! Don’t we, if not always, assess a person’s worth by his personality and physical appearance.”
“It is here that we need to be humane and sensible…and not limit and restrict our perception of others, purely on the basis of their ‘physical being’. Do we pause and think about the nature, temperament, character, qualities possessed…good or bad…that could be diametrically opposite, when compared, between the ‘beautiful’ people and the ‘not so fortunate’ people. It simply doesn’t strike us … as we are blinded by the physicality of their appearance.”
“If looks were all that mattered, then shouldn’t there have been a great difference in our belief and faith within us for our Gods … Ganeshji and Hanumanji ! Have we ever differentiated them from the other Gods in any way while worshipping them? No. Why? Because of their wisdom and unconditional ‘bhakti’. Are they less worshipped or revered by us in any way? Don’t we always begin our prayers by first taking the name of Lord Ganesha.”
“We must remember that a person with a deformity could be blessed with sound values and the best traits possible. The most twisted and crooked sugarcane shoots give us the sweetest juice. Has its convoluted form ever affected its inherent quality?”
“Appearances don’t matter … It is what a person is …that matters.”
Appearances can be deceptive….and All that glitters is not gold….Swamiji we shall always follow the guidance and path shown by you🙏
This is so true. Beauty is in the character and not in the form!
Truely said by Swami ji, the real beauty lies in good karmas, good deeds
True beauty lies within as our Swamiji so beautifully points out. Thank you Swamiji for teaching this vital lesson. Om swami shri Ajay Gurudevaya Namah🙏🏼🌹🙏🏼🌹🙏🏼🌹
Very True Swamiji!!!!
Om Shri Swami Ajay Gurudevaye Namah 🙏🙏🙏💐💐💐
Appearances are indeed deceptive! But with time the good looks fade away. What remains is only the eternal beauty of good karma, which shines like a radiant Sun. In fact goodness in itself is beauty. It is Godliness. One’s good character reflects on one’s face. As our beloved Swamiji said, Hanumanji is the most handsome personality only because of his ananya Rama bhakthi. We should cultivate goodness in our lives to attain our ultimate goal. If we can follow all the teachings of our Swamiji, that is enough for us to reach the divine destiny.
Indeed. We should respect the values of a person . What hecan deliver is the only thing that is important. We should not get biased by his appearance.
Thanks Swamiji for the guidance.
We pray to the almighty to be endowed with the capability to recognise the true character of s being over the physical form which could be deceptive.
Pranam Swamiji .
Thank you Swamiji for enlightening all of us with such an eye opening and self awakening thought 🙏
True!! Beauty is not just exterior appearance, real beauty is in one’s good character and kind behaviour. Thank you Swamiji for guiding us to be good and do good.
Jai guru ji ki
Thanks for your valuable thoughts.
Thank you Swamiji,
these words are so touching, so soothing to many of us
..in fact we all have deformities of one way or the other,
and we all have longed to be known for the good qualities we have inside us..
these words have brought out the pain and joy, both at the same time, inside the heart of every one..
Love you swamiji!
एक लोक कहावत है कि काम सबको प्यारा,चाम किसी को नहीं। चाम का आशय है -रंग,रूप और शारीरिक सुन्दरता। काम का अर्थ है कर्म अर्थात गुण।स्वामी जी ने हम सभी को एक कटु सच्चाई से परिचित कराया है कि हमारे गुण ही हमारी पहचान है और तो और मृत्यु पश्चात भी हमारे गुण ही हमारी पहचान रहते हैं।
स्वामी जी के चरणों में वन्दन करता हूँ।
Very true Swamiji

Om Shri Swami Ajay Gurudevaye Namah 🙏🙏🙏💐💐💐
Om gurudevo namaha. How beautifully guided. What matters is our heart n soul. The inner beauty lies within ourselves. What we are inside, it reflects outside on its own. It is not the looks that matters, it is our thoughts which matters. How beautifully guided. One should purify the inner self not the outer self. Looks are not precious, what is precious is ur, attitude, behavior, relationship n using ur tounge properly. So let’s all follow the true path of being beautiful from heart n brain to enhance the inner beauty. As it last forever the outer beauty will last for a period of time .so I determine to enhance my inner beauty n serve one n all kripa karey Gurudev.

Swamiji ke charno me koti koti naman
Om swami Ajay gurudevaye namha.
Very True and Eye Opening Message by Swamiji…
Thank You Swamiji 🙏🙏
Very very inspiring message by our Swamiji. What swamiji said is so apt in the present time. In today’s world, One looks only at the external beauty, without realising the other persons attitude or thoughts and gets deceived very easily. Realistically looks are very very deceptive.
Thank you very much Swamiji for enlightening us.
🙏🙏🙏ॐ स्वामीजी श्री अजय गुरूदेवाऐ नम: 🙏🙏🙏
Pranam Gurudev 🙏
Very nice, true, simple yet powerful message… Jai Ajay Guru Devaya Namaha
