Swamiji says …
“You are acquainted with the process of learning from that very moment when God infuses ‘life’ … ‘prana source’ in you. At birth , you learn to adjust your eyes to the brilliance of light in which the universe is bathed…and open them, finally, on your own accord. The umbilical cord that connects and attaches you to your mother … develops a bond so strong… physical, emotional and mental with her that a kind of self-learning makes you aware that she is your mother and enables you to single her out and respond only to her as your mother.”
“During your formative years your parents sow seeds of noble values and ‘sanskaars’ in you… teach you the difference between right and wrong and to be honest and truthful. They prove to be your greatest educators as you are introduced to life-skills by them, step by step, as they lovingly and patiently prepare you for the future that awaits you. Teachers educate you in school in various subjects and you gain theoretical and practical knowledge and you eagerly learn all that is taught, as your aim is to excel at academics. Coaching by private tutors hone your academic skills further at a certain cost. Lectures by professors who are experts in their subjects make you skilful and prepare you for your professional life. Different people from diverse fields educate you and empower you with knowledge that will make you carve a name for yourself in society and to earn your bread and butter. The list of people who have played an integral part in making you what you are today is long.”
“But the same cannot be said when we talk about an individual who is to be initiated and receive ‘diksha’ …the sacred ‘mantra’ …the syllables and sound of those magical words that are whispered in your ear … directing you onto the mysterious spiritual path… can only be imparted by ONE … The One Chosen to be your spiritual Teacher, by The ‘Neeli chatriwala’ … in the form of a ‘self realized’ Guru and you have the rare, golden opportunity to gain ‘True knowledge’ from Him and realise that your ‘internal’ cleansing by the Guru-ma is as much important as the ‘external’ cleansing of your physical being. The spark of spirituality latent, within you, can only be fanned by Him, as He alone has the divine ability … a gift given to Him by ‘vidhaata’ …The Absolute … to awaken you spiritually … and He smilingly takes upon Himself your ‘karma’ … good and bad … as He transfers spiritual knowledge in you. As he is The One who has seen God, heard Him and felt Him, he enriches us spiritually and we start understanding that we are nothing but a part of the ‘Divine Light’. The Chosen One is enlightened and quenches your spiritual thirst … answers your unanswered queries …
Who Am I ? Where Have I come from ? Why have I come here?
Where will I go? And only He can acquaint you with the Truth.”
“Remember to perform every ‘karma’ of yours in such a manner that very soon you too could be initiated and receive ‘diksha’ from a ‘sachcha sant’ … a self -realised soul.”
