Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae
There might be saints who are content to achieve realization for them and will neither move with society nor move their little finger for the benefit of others. Sathpurushas were certainly not one of that Self-centred kind. They loved service and help up Paropakara or service to others as a noble ideal to live up to.
Those that hear the praise of a Sathpurusha, their papa (sins) are washed away and punya (the fruit of good deeds) replaces papa to that extent. In course of time the Brahma-Shakthi (The Divine Energy or Cosmic Energy or Kundalini Shakthi) begins to infiltrate into them also. Moreover, as the people are sinful and getting more and more sinful, they are not qualified to experience the Supernatural feats and miracles.
“Love rules the court, the camp, the grove,
The men below and saints above;
For love is heaven and heaven is love.”
– Swami Sri Yukteshwar
This above stanza 2 from the third canto of “The Lay of the Last Minstrel, by Sir Walter Scott. “Love is God,” not merely as the noblest sentiment of a poet but as an aphorism of Eternal Truth.
To whatever religious creed a man may belong,
and whatever may be his position in society,
if he properly cultivates this ruling principle
naturally implanted in his heart,
he is sure to be on the right path
to save himself from wandering in this creation of Darkness, Maya.
In the words of illumined sage, Shankaracharya:
“Life is always unsafe and unstable, like a drop of water on a lotus leaf. The company of a divine personage, even for a moment, can save and redeem us.”
