Panchala-7: The ‘Māyā’ of a Magician

Nirupan

After having Vachanāmrut Panchālā-7 read, Swami said, “By understanding this manifest God (Bhagwan Swāminārāyan) to be free from all blemishes, there is nothing else left to do. And if God gives powers, one would not be able to control those powers - they would go mad like Shekhji. Therefore, God has kept some deficiencies in us. By understanding God as fault-free, one also becomes fault-free. The flaws that are experienced are of the material elements and only God is truly fault-free. Also, place and time do not affect God, but they do affect the jiva. Since the body is formed from the prārabdha karmas, when impure prārabdha karmas bear fruit, then place and time have an impact. But by knowing the manifest form of God as fault-free, then one is also in the process of becoming fault-free.

One Muslim Shekhji was a satsangi of Shriji Mahārāj. He expressed his desire to spread satsang in the Sindh region to Shriji Mahārāj, so Mahārāj gave him powers, “Whoever meditates on your beard will experience samādhi. However, keep five restrictions in mind: 1) Never speak to women. 2) Never wear fine clothes. 3) Never eat sweet and oily foods. 4) Never stay anywhere except Sindh. And 5) Never enter anyone’s mind and read their thoughts or spread their thoughts. However, after receiving powers, he lost control and trangressed all of these five rules. Then he started saying he is God, so Mahārāj took back his powers.
