Gadhada III-21: A Golden Thread; Dharma Possesses the Same Eminence as Bhakti

Prasang

Prasang 1

Samvat 1945, Mahuvā. Yagnapurushdāsji had established Bhagatji Mahārāj as a param ekāntik Satpurush based on Vachanāmrut Gadhada I-27 and incidents from his life. While doing so, he had also referenced Gadhada III-21 and said, “In Gadhada III-21, Mahārāj says, ‘... a thread of gold remains the same in all six seasons; it does not become limp even during the heat of summer. Similarly, when one’s satsang is firm, then one’s mind never turns away from Satsang. Only such staunch satsangis are My kith and kin; and I wish to stay in the midst of such devotees during this life.’ Therefore, think - have you heard of anyone who has been humiliated in Satsang as much as Bhagatji, and yet his mind has not turned away from the sadhus and satsangis even slightly?”

Vitthalbhāi answered, “Truly, this Vachanāmrut completely applies to Bhagatji, because I have never seen anyone nor heard of anyone who has been insulted as much as him. Based on this Vachanāmrut, Bhagatji is the param ekāntik Satpurush.”

Samvat 1952, Gadhadā. During the Jal-Jhilani samaiyo at 2:00 p.m., Bhagatji made his way to Acharya Vihārilālji Mahārāj’s residence, where an assembly was in progress. During the discourses, Acharya Mahārāj asked Moti Bhagat to read Vachanāmruts, Gadhadā I-27 and Gadhadā III-21.

Acharya Mahārāj then said, “Both of these Vachanāmruts seem to apply to Bhagatji. This is evident because Pavitrānand Swāmi insulted Bhagatji when Bhagvatprasādji Mahārāj went to Mahuvā. However, in the intense summer heat, Bhagatji would still sit on the sand opposite the tent and only got up after the evening discourse had finished. He is the only person in whom I have seen such enthusiasm for discourses and darshan of the sadhus. Everyone else was also convinced and felt, ‘there is no one else like this’ when they witnessed his elevated state of humility and saintliness. I was also amazed to see his spiritual state. Only a golden thread remain firm throughout all seasons, whilst threads made from wax soften during the summer heat. Similarly, in Satsang, only those who possess such a spiritual state remain stable when insulted; whereas others end up leaving Satsang permanently.”

“All of this is due to Swāmi’s grace,” Bhagatji replied.
