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.”

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.”
