Gadhada II-49: A Great Difference Exists between God’s Form and Māyik Forms; Not Becoming Content with Spiritual Discourses, Devotional Songs, etc.

Mahima

11 March 1963, Mumbai. Explaining Vachanāmrut Gadhadā II-49 during the morning discourse, Yogiji Mahārāj said, “Gunātitānand Swāmi had this Vachanāmrut read by Yogeshwardās eleven times near the infirmary for the ill sadhus. Was there anyone else who was manifest (pratyaksh)? Only himself. He spoke implicitely (implying that Mahārāj is manifest through him).”

Nirupan

March 11, 1963, Mumbai. While explaining the meaning of Vachanāmrut Gadhadā II-49 during the morning discourse, Yogiji Mahārāj said, “Gunātitānand Swāmi had Yogeshwardās read this Vachanāmrut 11 times near the clinic for the ill sādhus. Was anyone else ‘the manifest form’? He himself. (Implying Swāmi was the manifest form of Mahārāj.) He was speaking very meaningfully.

‘Muj vinā jānajo re, bijā māyik sahu ākār.’
(Consider all forms apart from mine to be bound by māyā.)

According to Vachanāmrut Gadhadā II-24, except for Mahārāj, everything up to and including Prakruti-Purush is characterized by māyā.

“If we say all avatārs are bound by māyā, people would object; however, if we say, ‘All avatārs incarnated from Vairāt and that Vairāt emerged from māyā,’ no one would object! All of the avatārs float like a speck of dust in each pore of Aksharbrahma. Everyone considers Mul-Purush to be Purushottam; and there is no knowledge above Mul-Purush. How can one get married before one is born? (i.e. How can scriptures reveal this fact before the birth of Purna Purushottam on this earth?)

“It is futile to contemplate about māyik forms. Māyik forms mean avatārs, not mountains and buildings. We see all that anyway. Have we fallen in narak? This talk pertains to upāsanā.

“One cannot punish a petty thief with a death penalty; someone who kills a prince would be sentenced to death. This relates to one who has an association with Purushottam, but wanders elsewhere (has affection for inferior deities). One’s vow of fidelity is said to have lessened. Someone learning the alphabet cannot comprehend a high school exam.

“One’s aim is to fully understand upāsanā of Mahārāj. Mahārāj is supreme and the cause of all avatārs. One should develop an affinity for Mahārāj, not elsewhere. We should firmly understand this.

“One should have a liking for Mahārāj’s murti, his sādhus and his darshan. One should keep Purushottam Nārāyan at the forefront of one’s life. One attains an elevated state if they continuously contemplate on the divine words. Kāl cannot destroy the ātmā. Karma cannot influence whether ātmā attains a higher realm or a lower realm. And māyā cannot absorb the ātmā. That ātmā sits in Akshardhām eternally!”
