Gadhada I-67: Acquiring the Virtues of the Satpurush

Nirupan

March 26, 1956, Sārangpur. Yogiji Mahārāj said, “When can one be said to have developed a rapport with the Motā-Purush? When one acts according to Vachanāmrut Gadhadā I-62. For these virtues to be acquired, one must perfect Vachanāmrut Gadhadā I-67. One should feel repentance [due to one’s own flaws] and think, ‘I do not understand anything.’ He does not comes to the Motā-Purush with preconceived notions. Then one will acquire the virtues of the Satpurush. We do not feel such repentance, hence:

Am be buti, tam be buti, buti bhelambhelā,
Chhāyā vinānu jhād batāvo, to tum guru hum chelā!

[Meaning: I have two ears, you have two ears, we look alike; show me a tree that does not give shade, then you are a guru and I am your shishya.]

“Do not act over-wise in front of the Motā-Purush. Those that have tried to do so in front of Mahārāj and Shāstriji Mahārāj were left behind [on the spiritual path]. Acting over-wise means not setting aside the whims of one’s mind. If one thinks, ‘I will only accept that you are great if you show me a tree without shade,’ then how will one acquire the virtues of the Satpurush?”

[Brahmaswarup Yogiji Mahārāj: 2/42]
