The Voice of Guruji – 2
Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae
Our Lives are uncertain and riddled with unknown rough and arduous tracts, peaks and valleys, joys and sorrows, success and failures. Where do we go for solace other than our dear Master, Mahan Sesha and our Merciful Guru Pujya Sri Rajalinga Swamigal.
We recall Sathguru Sri Rajalinga Swamigal’s Voice and advice to us given during the years 2005 and 2009.
(Shri. M. Rajagopal, Mumbai)
“I reach out to the Bhaktha who abdicates his worldly cares and approaches me in surrender. I am the Past, Present and Future and have carved out in fine detail to my dear Bhaktha his Life’ss course.”
“My Bhaktha can’t comprehend the expanse of Life if I lay it bare before him – Life’s several facets, turmoils, triumphs and events. The very enormity of these events are sufficient to frighten him and lose his courage.”
At this stage Swamiji gave us a candid example of visit to a movie:
“The audience is assembled in a Cinema hall to watch an interesting suspense movie. Just as the first scene lights up on the screen, the Film Producer comes on stage and narrates the progress of scenes, the Climax, Anti-Climax…and so on.”
‘Now, which spectator would be interested in the movie?’
He will lose all his interest and lose the very purpose of his visit to the movie hall!”
He further narrated that such is the mind-set of every Bhaktha, for he needs to take life in small doses at a time and experience every moment and become refined as a matured person. It is for this very purpose that the Guru’s Grace is available to him.
“I permit him to take one step at a time, learn from his successes and failures and eventually reach the zenith of the goal of his life – God Realisation.”
“How can I forsake him in times of need? He gets better relief when he but once realizes that I am there all the time and ever present by his side. I am the cause and the effect.
The Bhaktha is a mute spectator and an actor at certain times. He has only to hold my helping hand “Abhaya Hastham” and continue his path unfettered and worry free.”
