Loya-12: The Six Levels of Faith; Savikalp and Nirvikalp Faith

Nirupan

Someone asked, “Why can we not make the highest level of nirvikalp faith firm?”

Yogiji Mahārāj replied, “Sant Swāmi will provide the answer.”

Sant Swāmi explained, “If circumstances are favorable, if the speaker is highly experienced, and the jiva possesses outstanding faith, then it can be achieved in this very birth.”

Yogiji Mahārāj then said, “That is the correct answer, but did you understand the underlying meaning? Explain that.”

Then he himself said, “It is clear that we met a Purush like Shāstriji Mahārāj and know him; but one has not surrendered his mind, so he has distanced himself and has deficiency remain. Therefore, if one can totally surrender their minds at the feet of the guru, then the Motā-Purush can make firm the highest level of nirvikalp faith in him. There is no doubt in that.

“Then he forever behaves enthusiastically; only fountains of peace, happiness and joy would flow; and all of creation up to Prakruti-Purush would become insignificant, such that his attention is not drawn towards it. Motā-Purush can make you like that. If one does not surrender one’s mind, then how can one attain such a state? Therefore, we need to make this principle firm from the Motā-Purush. This path of knowledge entails that we engage in activity according to his commands and behave with awareness. This is difficult. We should carry on with determination.”

[Brahmaswarup Yogiji Mahārāj: 3/539]
