Swamiji says …
“Pleasure and pain; happiness and grief – are two sides of the same coin – and, if we assume ourselves to be a coin, we’ll undoubtedly find ourselves wearing two completely varying visages on both surfaces – one – lively, cherubic and happy; and the other, bearing signs of worry and sadness on it. Ironically, identical is the demeanour that is worn by us; and similar are the emotions displayed by each one of us – in real life – during the constantly changing scenarios that life surprises or shocks us with ; fun times are interspersed with challenges; laughter could be interrupted abruptly by sudden sobs; a dream run period could come to a screeching halt as a nightmarish phase encloses its firm grip on us… but it is how we receive, respond and react to the minute to minute changes in life that clearly defines us, makes us what we are, and that is what matters the most, at the end of the day!”
“An urgent need to understand God’s Divine plan, His Grace and Will – ‘Jo vidhaata ne humare bhaagya mein likha hai woh hi hoga – Jo sukh hummey bhogna hai, woh hum bhogenge, aur joh dukh humare hissey aana hai woh aayega!‘ – will most certainly make us live life with a more realistic and mature approach. Do we handle the ups and downs of life with the same poise and grace, is a question that needs an immediate answer? Are days of difficulty and duress accepted with the same sense of equanimity with which days overflowing with happiness are welcomed? Each day differs and thus, do we too behave differently! Honey-sugar welcome for happiness, and a bitter-shock treatment for unhappiness!”
“Remember, life can neither be smooth and placid; nor turbulent and disturbed forever. Sharp, rough edges will scrape us for sure. But man seems to forget this, and tries to study it from the point of view best suited to him- one that is of comfort and ease. He rejoices and celebrates in moments of triumph and glory and attributes the success achieved by him to the sheer dint of hard work that had been put in by him, and gains a sense of confidence that with God’s blessings, his life could remain devoid of problems and worries. So grateful is he to God that he chants his name repeatedly in gratitude ; remembers to thank Him profusely for enabling him to achieve his dream and for blessing him in abundance with everything that he could have ever dreamt of! Nothing could give God greater happiness than to see His child worship Him with devotion regularly; and He continues to shower His blessings on him. The recipient’s faith in God’s greatness increases by leaps and bounds.”
” But the point in question is whether the same individual will look upon God with the same reverence and faith the moment there is a drop in his fortune! Will a changing tide portending hardships, transform him into a completely ‘different’ human being? Happiness and unhappiness, evoke vibes that are startlingly poles apart. In retrospection, it appears that man is engineered to behave in this way. Unforgettable moments of ‘sukh’ – that fit perfectly into our lives like a dream- where wishful thinking, develops wings of fulfilment and takes a concrete shape, reinforces his faith in God. His respectful attitude for God simply states- ‘I am God’s favourite child. Nothing can ever go wrong for me!‘ But do we show the same grace, dignity and faith when faced with challenging situations. Does the joy of experiencing God’s Grace remain intact, or is it replaced by frissons of anxiety on being wrought with worries… on being confronted with ‘dukh’? We alone can answer this question.”
” What is our reaction when the going gets tough? More often than not, we see man behave in a bewildering manner before our eyes. He becomes morose, questions God, begins the blame game, adds to his woes and agony by refusing to accept the unexpected. He then directs all his negative energies on God, holds Him accountable for his pitiable state, makes Him a target of his wrath and refuses to worship Him. Does God warrant a hostile, accusatory treatment of this kind? He fails to remember – ‘Ussey abhi aur tapna hai… Jeevan neeras ho jata hai jab usmein koi mushkil ya takleef nahi hoti hai!” He forgets the countless times when God had stood by him and saved him in the nick of time from adversities. No, he wouldn’t remember all of that, would he? After all our memory span is very short.”
“We have created this division between happiness and unhappiness as we refuse to understand that come what may, and how much we try, we cannot wish away the ever – changing facets of life. Off and on, it looks at us with hopeful eyes, accompanied with a broad smile, and, at times, sizes us up with a look of worry in its eyes; without any trace of a smile… but our duty is to accept whatever comes our way, to be in an eternal state of gratitude to God to have blessed us with life itself- and live life on the terms and conditions set and framed by Him, as they would be best suited for us … ‘Aur Ishwar ko har paristhiti mein yaad karna chahiye !”
It’s very difficult in today’s world but we should always try to be happy as per Swamiji’s teaching!!!
Om Shri Swami Ajaye Gurudevaye Namah 🙏🙏
Real grace of God is not that we have abundance of everything. Real grace of God is when we are able to keep our balance in both adversity as well as abundance.
It’s easy to remember God on adversity , but being able to thank Him when everything is going gaga and not getting carried away by that and keeping same attitude when things turn 180 degrees is real grace of God.
Pranam Swamiji 🙏
We have to accept the different facets of life.
Try to remain calm with the help of our Mentor Swamiji.
Life is not bed of roses. Happiness is interval between two sorrows. As per the teaching of our beloved Swamiji,we must maintain balance in both. Our Swamiji is with us. We will be able to do. Jai Gurudev.
इंसान की प्रवर्ति ऐसी बनाई है कि जब वह बहुत सुखी होता है तो अपने भाग्य को लेकर इठलाता रहता है और सबसे यही कहता है कि यह सब उसके भाग्य का प्रताप है ।
जब उसी इंसान को किसी दुःख, संकट का सामना करना पड़ता है तो सारा दोष भगवान के सिर मढ़ देता है, यह उचित नहीं है ।
हर हाल में समान रहना चाहिये ।
Thank you Swamiji for always showering your blessings upon all of us through your divine thoughts and messages.

Jai Gurudevo Namaha.Extrmely wonderful Sandesh in todays scenario. It gives me immense amount of pleasure,confidence and shakti after reading this message. It is actually the way how do you perceive things.whether from a positive perspective or a negative perspective. Last year from March to This January i was in Gurgaon and meet Swamiji some times.He had really done wonders to enhance my perspective of life and being a jeen learner and trusting him fully i have summon my life to what ever he says.In turn he has really polished my perspective of thinking. As he said we should be happy in what situation we are.believe my words in these last soo many years of struggling and juggling i realized one thing live life as it comes and always count on your blessings. Please never crib for small worldly things as we all came empty handed and will definitely go empty handed.So why one should crib.
Secondly do not take things to your heart when someone says anything.Just listen to the person and incase it is your fault accept it.As it is said -Jo dalli jhuk ti hai uss par hi phaal lagta hai.so donot feel ashamed to accept your negatives.
Thirdly dont be cruel,rude,inhumane and angry on anybody.learn to forgive which is the biggest assert of life it really changes your way of thinking and living.
I am extremely greatful to Swamiji who has taught me so many things and has changed my way of living and thinking.Soo in todays situation nothing bothers me even my self centereddness has disappeared. What bothers me is the codition of persons around me and there welfare.
Today proudly i can say what happens,happens for good and it has a depper meaning as God has its own way of teachings things.As God has planned our lives just follow the path he shows.
Dhanyawad Swamiji sada apney kripa rakhna.Aap hi merey Jeewan ka adhar ho.
Dhanyawaad Swamiji 🙏🙏 🌺 for these wonderful pearls of wisdom and constant guidance!!!
Whatever is written in our ‘bhaagya’ , that much only we get. We should not try to grab that which is not in our portion. Instead, try to be happy in whatever situation we are in. Eeshwar is witnessing everything, every moment. Neki ke raste chalo, phal ki apeksha mat rakho.
जिन्दगी छोटी मिली है खुश रहो हर हाल में
सासों की सरगम पे रब के नाम की माला जपो
how beautiful are these lines!!
With the divine blessings of our dear Swamiji, we should walk on the path of contentedness.
