Role of Nature

We should do our duty to uplift Mankind, not minding whether they are doing their duty towards us properly.  We believe that it is the highest moral which we should achieve,  though   with some troubles and sacrifices on our part. This is a part of saintliness.  When we work, it is but natural that some hurdles are also there.  Gradually they diminish. There are good people  everywhere hankering for Him. If we do service, success will surely  dawn. Blessed are those who have a glimpse of Divinity, even though it may be momentary.

Ultimate Solution

God is simple and the method followed to achieve Him is also simple and straight. Man, technically termed homo sapiens i.e., wise man, has tried to seek God. Thought when purely divine, can reach the Source without fail.  If corrupted with attributes and qualities, realisation also becomes corrupted and degraded.  Gross methods give grosser results.

Meditation on the simple, pure and Ultimate alone can save man in his crisis. This surely makes him more and more simple, bringing him closer and closer to the original home.  As you think, so you become.

Worship - The Real Sadhana

All the religions in the world have prescribed one way or the other for the realization of God--the Immaterial Absolute. They have also given higher ideals of life and most of the people have begun to follow them. As the time went on, they began to peep into other sides as well, because the scythe of time brought about these changes in them.  The environment of the living world began to attract them and the necessities of life compelled them to take the other course.  Arts and crafts also developed and deities of different sorts were carved out by the artists under the name of different Gods and people worshiped them.

Divine Grace

Almost all systems of sadhana have two aspects--one self practice or abhyas and the other the Master's help and support.  In order to develop the required condition, self effort(abhyas) alone is not all or even enough.  It must be supplemented by  Divine Grace which is the one essential for the purpose. 
Only a person capable of transmitting Divine Grace through the Yogic Process of Pranahuti is fit to become a Master.  The selection  of such a worthy Master is certainly a problem. An easy method of judging a worthy Guru(Master) is when you happen to come in contact with one, try to understand whether or not His association promotes in you a feeling of peace and calmness, and the restless tendencies of your mind seem to be silenced for the time being at least, without causing any weighty effect upon it. If it is so, you must thereby conclude that He can be a fit person to help you in the solution of your life problem. 
In Sahajmarg, Divine Grace is directed towards an abhyasi thr…

Love Universal

Things come and go, but we remain the same.  If we thoroughly scrutinize ourselves, changeless state is there, but we are connected with the changeable and either we take interest in it or hate it, and both of them are the links for bondage.  We should rise above all these things if we want to live a peaceful life.  Sahajmarg brings out these results if we do practice it with interest.

Many say that they are trying hard to raise themselves from the mire of thoughts and emotions.  It is of course, the duty of an abhyasi and he is awakened to that state and work starts in that colour.
A piece of cloth is prepared by the wisdom of the weaver.  His hands are at work but he displays his wisdom by the movement of his hands.  Wisdom has its own center, but it works through the hand also.  Similarly when the idea of betterment is there, this is the sure sign of improvement.
God has created the world so that every flower may grow in its right standard. But the lashes of time have made it to f…

Our Real Existence

When we were born into this world for the first time, we were Pure because the Source from which we have descended or come down is Purity. The time went on, and in our innumerable births we have gathered around us different types of grossness by our actions.
In this present existence too we are performing actions, and the result is these very actions slowly form layer after layer of grossness around the original Purity, so that in course of time we come to resemble the silk worm that has spun a cocoon around itself. When man reaches this stage of His earthly existence, His life is one of artificiality and full of grossness,both at the level of action and in results. The original Purity has been reduced to a faint glimmer, and that is often scarcely perceptible.  All memory of His original Source or Homeland is now forgotten, and as action follows action the shell around Him gets harder and harder and His memory of the Source gets fainter, until it is almost completely forgotten.

Easiest way of Realization of God

Which is the easiest way of realization of God?

We belong to the country where religious spirit has ever been flowing in one or the other form.  Diverse means are adopted for the purpose of gaining the objective of life.  They may be correct if the heart is connected with it in the real sense, so as to be absorbed in the essence of real life. We are bred to have union with Reality which we have emerged from.  We have brought with us the very essence of Infinity and we should try to keep close to it, in order to give freedom to our thought for absorption in the Infinite.  If we neglect it, we remain bound to activity of thought, and not to the Reality at the root which is limitless.  Hymns and prayers offered generally result in flattery when one is dumb to the real spirit of the essential character.  Great teachers have always been actively speculating to devise means and methods of higher approach, though the solution is quite at hand.  Really, the path nearest to yourself is the pa…

The Purpose of Life

What is the Purpose of Life?Our ancestors have started their  ways of realization  in the forests, away from the life of action, foresaking all ties of worldly connection with their fellow beings and others.We, under the Sahaj Marg System try to create such an atmosphere around us, in our homes, so that they serve the purpose of forests.What we do is to attach ourselves more to God, and the result is that non-attachment follows automatically as a corollary.  We thus come to the state of vairagya in a natural way without any effort  on our part.There should be a goal before us, and we should try to attain it in the most natural way.There are many methods of realization, and each one claims its efficacy as the best.  But it is our duty, before entering into any system, to consider which is the best system, and it depends upon one’s own judgment and the Grace of God to get a real method to solve the mystery of one’s life.It is an admitted fact that the thought force of man is nearer to G…
