Vartal-5: One Should Not Perceive Māyā in God; Performing Similar Service

Nirupan

April 19, 1940. Mombasa. In the ‘Lohana Assembly Hall’, Yogiji Mahārāj said, “Nityānand Swāmi asked, ‘What is the characteristic of refuge in God?’ Manifest Purushottam Narayan answers the question with love: ‘Sarva dharmān parityajya māmekam sharanam vraja! O! Arjun. Abandon the whims of your mind. Do as I say.’ Arjun did as told so he won (the Mahābhārat war). Mahārāj installed his murti along with Nārāyan (as Nar-Nārāyan) in Amdāvād. There are three characteristics of refuge in God: (1) We do not encounter misery equal to the final dissolution; but if we do, one would believe only God and his Sant are the true protectors, no one else. (2) If one needs something, he only asks God. (3) He behaves according to his wishes. Mahārāj answered Nityānand Swami. His words are worthy of understanding. One experiences misery like the whole world will fall apart, yet he believes no one except Shriji Mahārāj will protect him. Without his wish, not even a dry leaf would stir in the wind. Gunātitānand Swāmi said, ‘If someone comes charging at us with the intent of beating us, we should understand that everything happens according to my Swami’s wishes; however, without his will, no one can stir a leaf.’ Mahārāj and Swāmi both said the same thing. Both are connected. One who has the belief of Purushottam along with Akshar will experience peace and tranquility.”

[Brahmaswarup Yogiji Mahārāj: 6/163]
