Saint and the Common Man

It is really surprising that some people consider themselves to be too weak for spiritual practice, while actually they are not so. An ordinary man has within him the same power and the same soul-force that a saint has.

The only difference between them is that the sage has torn off the coverings round his soul while the others are just like a silkworm in the cocoon.

And if one resolves firmly to throw off these coverings no power on earth can stop him. What is required for spiritual growth of man is only an iron will. When it is there, the goal is just in sight. If we have these two things there can be absolutely no chance of failure.
A powerful will once made is enough for the sure attainment of the REAL. Half the distance is crossed when a man enters the field with a firm will. Nothing can then stand in his way. So please give up dwelling upon the false notion that you cannot reach the goal. Be firm like a rock and success is sure to dawn by itself.

Faith in the guide of course counts for much. But in this connection you must remember that only he can be a capable guide who has torn off his own Coverings, and at the same time possesses the powers of transmission to help and support others on the path.

If few complexities are there, they shall be easily removed if you go on with your practice.

If you happen to trace out any weakness in yourself please think it to be mine and be bold and go in with your practice. The responsibility shall thus be shifted to me and you shall be relieved of its effect.

This is quite easy to do. Do it and watch the results. Usually the intricate methods applied for the purpose often make matters far worse and more complicated.

Realisation is a very simple thing which can be attained only by simplest means. One thing is specially important here. It is that the abhyasi must ever remain restlessly impatient for the attainment of the goal. This is the key to success and it strikes at the every root.

As for myself I may say that whenever I am on with my spiritual work, I never feel doubtful of success in the least. For that reason I never had to face disappointment in my entire spiritual career. An unflinching will was the secret of it. I want you all to develop that sort of unfailing will, and you can very easily do that.

Sri Ramchandraji Maharaj, founder of Sri Ramchandra Mission,Shajanpur has given the above assurance to his disciples who practice Sahajmarg. To know what is Sahajmarg and its practice, go through the spiritual articles in this website.

Tapatraya (3 Cravings) of Humans and the suitable methods to suffice them

Tapatraya in Sanskrit, means 'The 3 Cravings (Anxieties)' of the Human Life. Trying for a thing or for a purpose with undue longing and anxiety is generally called as Tapatraya (Craving). This is the common man’s view. But spiritually this has got a different meaning, a meaning in true sense.

These three kinds of cravings termed as Tapatraya are  - 1. Aadhi Bhouthika (Physical), 2. Aadhi Dyvika (Mental), and 3. Adhyatmika (Spiritual).

The explanation of these three may differ from one school of thought to the other. But let us think according to our view.
