Kariyani-9: Obstinacy like a Buffalo

Nirupan

December 9, 1961, Mumbai. During the morning discourse, while explaining Vachanāmrut Kāriyāni 9, Yogiji Mahārāj said, “In Kāriyāni 9, devotion is defined as enduring burdens. What is devotion? Nirdosh-buddhi, servitude, seeing divinity in God, and knowing the greatness of all who has an association with God. One should not speak with a high tone or talk down to others. Talking down to others is as good as hitting Shāstriji Mahārāj.

“Shāstriji Mahārāj spoke a lot about Uddhavji and the Gopis. We should understand the importance of those associated with Swāmi. We should ask that we can stay as the dust of their feet. If one understands the greatness of the relationship [between God and the devotee], then one would not bear a grudge against them. He would develop servitude. He would never see flaws in anyone. We are nothing in front of him. He would maintain divinity in others. If one can perfect this Vachanāmrut, one will always see divinity.”

[Brahmaswarup Yogiji Mahārāj: 3/252]

Nirupan

February 18, 1963. Mumbai. Swāmishri arrived in Akshar Bhavan at 8:30 pm. Mahant Swami garlanded Swāmishri with a garland the sadhus strung together by hand...

During the discourse, Swāmishri explained Kāriyāni 9: “Nirdoshbhāv is the means to not being offended or developing an aversion [toward the Satpurush or devotees]. By understanding their association [with God] and regarding them as ekāntik - that is devotion. Bhakti is as according to Gadhadā I-30. Just as God in Akshardhām has a definite form, he is also present on this earth - when one understands his greatness this way, then one lives according to the verse ‘Tulsi jā ke mukhanse’ and is ready to sacrifice one’s body for those associated with God. If a grudge develops, then that is not love. All of these sadhus have great merits from their past (that is why they are here). If one has affection, then they would not leave Satsang. If one is overwhelmed in Satsang (cannot handle the burden) and leaves, they are new to Satsang.”

† This is in reference to the verse: ‘Tulsi jā ke mukhanse, bhule nikse Rām, tāke pagki paheniyā, mere tan ki chām.’ Tulsidās says that even if someone utters the name of Lord Rām by mistake, I would offer my skin to make shoes for their feet. Even such an insignificant association to Lord Rām was enough for Tulsidās.
