Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae


People want a Sathpurusha who will behave like their servant and give them whatever they desire at once. A Sathpurusha, i.e. the man in the state of Sath, is an infinite storehouse of the unending Infinite Bliss that is the Siddhanta.

It is the incarnation that descended from Para Brahma (the Lord of the Universe or the creator in the form of Sathpurushas mentioned here, their original state), at whose hands many a miracle has happened.

With His Kripa, a Sathpurusha not only gives world happiness, but also gives them the Infinite Bliss. But then to receive either of them or both of them, one has to be properly qualified. Para Brahma (Lord of universe) is ever lasting, complete, without beginning or end. It is one, indivisible being.

    – Sutra 1. The Holy Science,
    by Sri Swami Yukteswar Giri Maharaj

    (In Tamil Saint Manickavasagar says,”Adhiyum Anthamum illatha Arunachala Easane” i.e. Lord Arunachala of Thiruvannamalai)

The Eternal Father, God, is the only Real Substance, Sath, and is all in all in the universe and therefore not comprehensive by man of this material world, unless he becomes divine by lifting his Self above this creation of Darkness or Maya.

    See Hebrews (Bible) 11.1 and John (Bible) 8:28:

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

Then Jesus said unto them, when ye have lifted up the son of man, then shall ye know that I am He.”

Surrender

Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae

When the Master says, “surrender to me”, he does not mean subservience to him. He simply means, “whatsoever you are right now is not the real you. Put aside this whole false idea of yourself. Give it to me. Give this poison to me”. By surrendering your false, you become the real. And the real can never be surrendered so the Master is not worried about the real. Only the unreal can be surrendered.

A Master will not be able to function if you are not surrendered. You will not open up. You will not allow him passage, you will protect yourself even against him, you will be defensive even against him, you will keep a distance, and you will not allow him too close an approach to you, then there is no possibility. What is surrender? Surrender is only a trust that you are going to open your heart to the Master. It is a risk, who knows what the Master will do to you? Certainly it is a risk.

Surrender is possible only if you are very strong. To surrender needs great strength, great courage, and great risk. Weak people cannot surrender. They cannot trust themselves so much and they can’t be courageous enough to open their hearts before somebody else.

Jesus says, “Unless you are like a child you will not enter into the Kingdom of God.”

The child understands in a different way. First the child has no knowledge, when you know that you don’t know, there is opening. When you know you know, you are closed.

When the question is out of knowledge it is impossible to answer it. When you already think you know, you are in conflict with anything that is going to be said to you. You have something at stake-your knowledge, your past, your belief, and your doctrine. A child has none of these hindrances.

The kinds of Love:

Like every great virtue, love, the mainspring of all life, can also be misapplied. It may lead to the heights of God-intoxication or the depths of despair. No better example can be given of the two polarities of love and their effects than that of Mary Magdalene, before and after meeting JESUS.

Between the two extremes are many kinds of love. On the one hand, love does exist in all the phases of human life; but here it is latent or is limited and poisoned by personal ambitions, racial pride, narrow loyalties and rivalries and by attachment to gender, nationality, sect, caste, or religion. On the other hand, pure and real love has also its stages, the highest being the gift of God to love HIM.

When one truly loves God, one longs for union with HIM, and this supreme longing is based on the desire of giving up one’s whole being to the beloved.

Divine Love is qualitatively different from human Love.

Human Love is for the many in the One and the Divine Love is for the One in the many. Human love leads to innumerable complications and tangles; but Divine Love leads to integration and freedom.

To those whose hearts are pure and simple, true love comes as a gift through the activating grace of a Perfect Master, and this Divine Love will perform the supreme miracle of bringing God into the hearts of men.

God listens only to the language of the heart, which constitutes Love.

We can love God by surrendering to the Perfect Master who is God’s personal Manifestation. We can also love God by loving our fellow-beings, by giving them happiness at the cost of our own happiness, by rendering them service with the sacrifice of our interests and by dedicating our lives at the altar of selfless service.

When we love God intensely through any of these channels, we finally know HIM to be our own Self.
