Gadhada I-11

Vāsanā; An Ekāntik Bhakta

On Māgshar sudi 14, Samvat 1876 [30 November 1819], Shriji Mahārāj was sitting in Dādā Khāchar’s darbār in Gadhadā. He was dressed entirely in white clothes. At that time, an assembly of munis as well as devotees from various places had gathered before Him.

Thereupon Brahmanand Swāmi asked, “Mahārāj, what is the nature of ‘vāsanā’?”

Shriji Mahārāj explained, “A desire within the antahkaran to enjoy vishays that have been previously seen, heard or indulged in is called ‘vāsanā’. Moreover, a desire within the antahkaran to enjoy those vishays that have not been previously indulged in is also called ‘vāsanā’.”

Thereafter Muktānand Swāmi asked, “Mahārāj, who can be called an ekāntik bhakta of God?”

Shriji Mahārāj replied, “A person who has no ‘vāsanā’ except that of God and who offers bhakti to God realising himself to be brahmarup is called an ekāntik bhakta.”
