Gadhada III-2: The Attainment of All Purushārths; Incarnate God in the Form of the Guru

Nirupan

June 23, 1962. Mumbai. In the afternoon discourse, Yogiji Mahārāj had Gadhadā III-2 read and said, “Satsang means Satpurush. Before acquiring the association of the Satpurush, one encounters three paths - the three inclinations (ātmā-realization, vow of fidelity, and servitude). Toward which one of these should one turn? One becomes confused (not knowing which of these three is their inclination). If someone showed them, then one’s confusion would be cleared. The Satpurush shows one which is their inclination and their confusion is cleared by trusting his words.

“One becomes deluded by anger. One would hit their own brother with an ax (being deluded with anger). One accumulates wealth due to greed. One would commit a similar sin being deluded by greed. One should ask the Motā-Purush, ‘Which is my inclination?’ Then one should offer bhakti in that direction. When one offers bhakti remaining within their inclination, then lust, etc. become weak. ‘I am a servant of Sahajānand.’

“Who is the eternal Satpurush? The Gunātit Sant. One attains sanskārs through the association of the Satpurush. One who has attained the association of such a Sant, yet cannot understand his greatness as it is has an extremely dull intellect. An ant that climbs into a bag of sugar crystals will merrily keep eating them all the way to Kāshi. Similarly, one should sit in this bag (in the form of the Satpurush). Mahārāj says: ‘This is not an ordinary assembly. I regard this spiritual assembly higher than Golok, Vaikunth, etc.’ One should perform austerities, observe renunciation and religious vows. One should focus on the divine form of God. One should believe oneself to be Brahma and do darshan - this is service in itself. We may not believe what has been said; thus Mahārāj swears. I (Mahārāj) see everyone resplendent with divine light. What do we mean by that? It does not mean a blaze of light, but it means due to one’s association with God. Otherwise, we would perceive manushyabhāv.”
