Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae

When a Sathpurusha bestows his Kripa on somebody, he removes his faculty of knowing – He strips him off the trinity – the knower, the knowledge and all that is to be known. If a saint tells a man, to remember and perform japa of any particular God and that person does accordingly, only sticking to it by giving up everything else in and of the world, he does not allow his mind and reasoning to thing of or probe into anything else. Then his mind becomes so engrossed in it that it is completely cut off and shut off from the world. This is exactly what is meant by, or, expected of, blind faith. Blind faith thus means shutting off the mind from everything else except the One, in which the faith is placed.

Once the mind gets well attached to any of the Mantras, by constant repetition, then in due course, it begins to remain unaffected by the affairs and relations of this world. If by chance, however, the worldly worries still persist, the karma is soon washed away by the effect of that Mantra, which, being a form of Para-Brahma, is able to wash away the perishable and false impressions of the world.

Such is the wonderful result and glory of blind faith in the Sathpurusha.

The Sathpurusha takes responsibility for the whole world, thereafter!

Om Sathguru Shri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae

There are three principal modes of comprehending the words of a Sathpurusha:

Scholarship One is to explain by various references, comments and examples; this the most common mode; for this the interpreter has to be a great scholar with wide reading, thought, research and experience, and in that too, he himself must have learnt in a traditional way; the student in this case also, has to be a person of no mean intelligence, work and capacity.

Self-realization A person, who has no such scholarship, (from the worldly point of view), but who has attained the Para-Brahma, goes on talking about whatever he experiences in that state, either in a plain or a couched manner. His simple talks always have a subtle and deep meaning even though superficially they may not strike as of much importance. To understand these talks and derive the significance of their meaning can only be beneficial; in short, every listener cannot grasp what is spoken to them. His talks are not only very simple but they are illustrated with various common examples from one’s daily life.These talks of his run in the traditional groove. This mode is indeed, superior to the first.

Guru-Sishya tradition The best way to self-illumination is the Guru-Sishya tradition. The Guru and his disciple may be far away, or, very near to each other. Even when they are together they are never seen to exchange a single word. The guru secretly acts on the mind of the disciple; the mind of the disciple gets linked up to that of his guru; and as the mind of the guru is in that state of Brahma, in due course, the mind of the disciple also passes into that state. There has been no talk, no explanation, and no external sign of any communication between them. In this the disciple spontaneously begins to understand everything by himself.
