Grace

Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae


There are many saints, who leaving their houses, stay in forest, caves or hermitage and in solitude, in order to get liberation or salvation for themselves. They do not care for other people and are always self-absorbed.

SathPurushas (the Incarnations of God), are not of such a type. Rare are the sadhus and saints, who, after attaining God-vision, strive for the welfare of the people. SathPurushas mentioned in “Some Sathpurushas”, are the best examples.

“Blessed is the country, blessed is the family and blessed are the chaste parents, where these Extraordinary, Transcendent, precious and pure jewels were born.”

“Better than reading is hearing, and better than hearing is seeing. One understands the scriptures better by hearing them from the lips of the Guru. Then one does not have to think about their non-essential part.”

When Grace comes, the stream of remembrance flows into the mind continuously, and everything necessary is done to maintain the remembrance. The remembrance must be unbroken like a “thaila dhara”, which means the flow of oil. When oil is poured from one vessel to another, you see it flows unbroken. The moment there is a break in the remembrance of God, at once the ego-sense takes possession of us and darkness sets in.

Some people open the windows of their heart to receive Grace while some others keep them closed and they do not get it. But even to keep the windows of the heart open requires some inner aspiration and longing, and that longing can come to us only through the Grace of God. This is true because we see that all do not want to keep the windows open. We keep them shut. The result is we do not enjoy the benefit of Grace.

Therefore, it is not that Grace is not on us, but we are not prepared to receive it.

The ways of Grace are indeed mysterious!!

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


Sathpurushas are above religion and caste.


Existence, Consciousness, and Bliss are the three longings (of the human heart).

Ananda, (bliss) is the contentment of heart attained by the ways and means suggested by the Saviour, the Sathpurusha.

Chith, the true consciousness, brings about the complete destruction of all troubles and the rise of all virtues.

Sath, existence, is attained by realization of the permanency of the soul.

Sath – Chith – AnandaSatchidananda


These three qualities constitute the real nature of a man. All desires being fulfilled, and all miseries removed the achievement of Paramartha (the highest goal) is made.


– Sri Swami Yukteswar Giri (1855-1936)

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

Q) To whom does the Sathpurusha (SathGuru) give the experience of Brahma?

A) It is to him whose mind has become purified and steadfast, one who has a blind faith in God, in any life, past or present. This is the person who receives the Kripa (grace), of his Sathpurusha. He is the one qualified to receive and learn it.

Q) Who is eligible to be a Medium of the SathGuru?

A) There are so many in this world, who need the Sathguru’s help.He helps them through those, who are willing to be the medium of His Love.

To qualify as a medium, the best example to describe the qualities one should posses would be Lord Krishna’s flute, Murali.

If you have the capacity to draw the Lord (Mahan Shri Seshadri Swamigal) to yourself, He will Himself come to you and be with you. Be Like Krishna’s Flute: a hallow reed, straight, light, with no substance to hinder His breathe.

Then, He (Mahan Shri Seshadri Swamigal), will come and pick you up from the ground. He will breathe Divine music through you, playing upon you with delicate touch. He will stick the flute into His sash. He will press His lips on it; he fondles it, favour it and flourishes it. In His hand, the infinitesimal will be transmuted into the infinite; the anu (microcosm) will be transformed into the ghana (heavens).

Here is a story of Lord Krishna’s Flute:

One day Lord Krishna pretended to be fast asleep, with the flute carelessly thrown aside by His side.

Radha approached the fortunate flute and asked it in plaintive terms, “Oh! lucky Murali (Lord Krishna’s Flute), tell me how you earned this great good fortune. What was the vow you observed, the vigil you kept, the pilgrimage you accomplished? What was the mantra you recited, the idol you worshipped?” The Flute spoke, by His grace: “I rid myself of all sensual desire, of envy greed and ego – that is all. I had no feeling of ego left to obstruct the flow of His love through me to all creation.”

While everyone is identical with the divine, few realize it.

Realize your breathe is answering the question correctly and live in the consciousness that you are a wave of the He, that is the infinite consciousness, that is Guru or God.

If you shed your pride and really surrender to a Sathpurusha, then, He can do everything for you and elevate you.

Let your mind have no waves; let it be silent, level, and calm – so that the HAMSA can sport thereon. Then you will become a Medium!

SATHPURUSHA

Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae


God is invisible: it is through the form of a Sathpurusha

that He is seen in the world.”

Q) Who is a Sathpurusha?

A) The whole creation is in the state of Para-Brahma (Lord of Universe). The only point is that very few human beings (one in millions) with the help of punya arising out of sathkarmas are able to experience their Real Original State (Self-Realization). The one who has attained the state of Poorana Purusha is called Sathpurusha.

A Sathpurusha is a Perfect Spiritual Master.

He is also known by the name – Siddhapurusha, or SathGuru.

He is the Maharaja, or the Shehan Shah – the King of Kings….

He is an Avatar in Human form of Divine Incarnation of Lord of Universe or a Mahaan (The Great One) or Para-Brahma or Aadhi Moolam.

One should stick to Him.

Q) What are the hallmarks of a Sathpurusha?

A) A Sathpurusha is seen to behave as he likes. They are never attached to, or affected by, anything they do or see, since, during all those actions, they are always beyond the state of the gross body, (i.e. they are in a liberated state) Such a Sathpurusha, always in a liberated state, is called a Jivanmukta. (Shirdi Sai Baba, Sri Seshadri Swamigal).

They know for a fact that the world is really non-existent. They know that it comes into existence in one’s own imagination. They can bring the world and the imagination into existence through their powers, and grace the world. They can bring about any change they like, in the world. They act, irrespective of the world.

They can experience themselves as the whole world, or, on the contrary, experience that the world does not exist. A Sathpurusha is beyond the worldly state. These are some of the signs of a Jivanmukta.

The one who always remembers within his mind the form of his SathGuru enjoys the state of liberated soul-the state of a Jivanmukta.
