Kariyani-10: Checking the Pulse; Austerities

Summary

  1. After noticing illness in Mahārāj’s body, Muktānand Swami said, “Mahārāj, it seems that the times are tough for the satsangis right now; after all, Mahārāj! You are as vital to the satsangis as their lives, and any illness in Your body is the very definition of a difficult period for all satsangis.”
  2. Austerities:
  1. A sādhu who is wise should also behave so as to deliberately induce suffering to his body and indriyas.
  2. Austerities are a means to please God.
  1. God is the all-doer:
  1. Understanding this is the supreme cause of liberation.
  2. Not understanding this is a great sin.
  1. One should immediately shun the company of those persons and those scriptures that refute the upāsanā of God and break one’s master-servant relationship with God.
  2. If the person who is offering bhakti to God with such lavish objects does so without any desires, solely for the purpose of earning God’s pleasure, then it is all right. If, on the other hand, he is tempted by those objects, viewing them to be God’s prasād, and, leaving God aside, if he develops affection for those objects, then by indulging in the vishays, he will become engrossed in them and corrupted by them.
  3. A person who has great zeal in any endeavour would never be hindered, even if he were to face thousands of obstacles.
