Gadhada II-7: A Poor Man

Nirupan

April 1, 1970, Mwanza, Tanzania. During Swāmishri’s stay at the bungalow of Rāmubhāi, Yogiji Mahārāj had Vachanāmrut Gadhadā II-7 read in the afternoon. He then said, “What are the characteristics of a sadhu? To tolerate. Is it like tolerating the words: ‘You are very great.’? No! ‘You are a dim-witted fool.’ Tolerating those words is a true characteristic of a sadhu. One wants to break their hunger but does not want to eat. Similarly, one wants to eradicate their vicious nature yet is lacking vairāgya. Mahārāj shows a third way - serving a Motā-Purush. Who should we understand to be greater that Muktānand Swāmi, who was the greatest is the whole Satsang? He obeys the commands of a Gunātit Satpurush, but has doubts and applies logic in executing the commands; therefore, it cannot be called true service. There are four types of shishyas: 1) One who serves according to the wishes of the Satpurush, 2) the second who only does what he is shown, 3) the third who doubts what the Satpurush says, and 4) the fourth who just runs away. The first earns 100%, the second earns 66%, the third earns 33% and the fourth is all right. What is intense service? To understand that the Motā-Purush is free of all flaws. Just as the body has achieved oneness with the ātmā, one should not keep any distance from the Satpurush; then one will acquire the qualities of the Satpurush.”

[Brahmaswarup Yogiji Mahārāj: 6/120]
