We the Sadhakas should always keep in mind that whatever good we are doing is all due to the grace of the Guru and God. Otherwise, we have been bound by maya, awfully attached to the worldly possessions, absolutely worthless, having hideous ideas, full of dirt and filth from time immemorial.

If we are able to do something good, if a tear trickles from our eyes for God, if we have some good word and noble feeling for the Guru, we must conclude that it is all due to the Guru's grace.

If he had not given us the spiritual knowledge, if he had not bestowed his love upon us, how would we be inclined to do good things in life? So, do not ever give credit to yourself. It will only give rise to egoism. Egoism takes away humility. Once humility is gone the castle of bhakti or devotion will come crashing down. Life will be filled with vices in no time. So, if you have done some noble deeds, YOU MUST BE THANKFUL TO THE GURU with whose grace alone you are able to do such good things. This will save you from the vice of egoism.

We must always keep in mind that if we had not met the Guru, if he had not shown us the way, and had not given us his love and affection, we would not have inclined towards God.

On the other hand, if we have done something wrong, have been negligent in doing the right thing, or have committed some crime, we should hold ourselves responsible for that, so that we could realize our mistakes and we would not repeat them.

We should attribute our good deeds to the God's grace and the grace of the Guru and for all the wrong that we may have done, we should hold ourselves responsible.

(Avadhardani).. All Benevolent....

Acts of giving or donation are of three kinds. One is that in which a person donates money or things to sub serve his selfish motive. Another is one which is given selflessly as charity. Yet another kind of donation is called avadhar daan.

You know well about the donation given for a selfish motive. In fact, you people often make this kind of donation. You give money to your father, mother, spouse, son and also to a shopkeeper who gives you some article of your use in return. This comes under the category of selfish donation which means giving money or something and expecting something else in return. so the people in the world are by and large selfish and whatever they do for others has always some motive behind it.

In your families whenever there is a girl's marriage ceremony, the invitees bring along gifts of different values. You make a note of gifts and their respective value against the name of each invitee. It is because whenever there is similar occasion in the family of the invitee, you are obliged to give a gift in return. This is the kind of gift or donation which is given with a motive or expectation. People may say outwardly that they do not want anything in return. But inwardly they do expect. If your husband or wife is ill, you keep awake all night long to attend on him on her. why do you do it? For, if the other person dies then you will lose whatever you are expecting from that person, while he or she is living. Your purpose will not be served. That is why we make sacrifices, donations and suffer inconveniences. This kind of generosity with selfish motive can be found in abundance all over the world.

The real donation is one which is done without any motive or exception behind it. Only God or the saints show this kind of generosity. They do not have any motive or selfishness behind Their acts of giving. The motive of people in general is attainment of bliss and freedom from the bondage of maya. About God, there is no question of his ever having a selfish motive. He is the embodiment of infinite bliss. A nitya siddh saint has also never ever been under the influence of maya. So far about the sadhan siddh saints, those who were earlier selfish and under maya's influence, have become free from these twin evils after God realization.

Now what are they to do? Either They should not do anything, or if They have to do something, They should do it for others. Because there is nothing left or needed that They would do for themselves. So if God and the Saints give away something, whether by Their words or deeds, They will invariably do it for others without any selfish motive. But there too is a condition. They give it to a person in proportion of his degree of surrender. You can call it a donation or the Grace. God says that the amount of His grace or divine gift to a person depends on the degree of his surrender to Him. it means that in that donation too there is a condition about the degree of one's surrender.

The selfless offering of God and the saints is conditioned by the degree of your surrender to Them. If there were no such condition all living beings would benefit equally. If the amount of Grace showered on an individual soul is disproportionately high compared to the degree of his surrender which is very little, it is a special kind of grace. Only Radha Rani can do it. Therefore, She is called Avadhardani.

When we look at the way Shri Maharaj ji showers grace, we feel that he is All Merciful Radha Rani in a different form. He says that he has stopped noticing others' faults and he has abundance of grace for everybody. That is his real self...

My beloved Radhey is an endless ocean of the nectar of Divine love. She eternally resides in Divine vrindaban. She is served and attended by Krishn, the supreme God. Mohan Krishn presses the feet of the Governess of His heart, soul-beloved Radha Rani. O Radhey! There is no one in the world as merciful as You. he ca uselessly bestows Her Grace upon all the souls. I was ignorant since eternity but now I know the greatness of Radha Rani. Lakchmi and Brahmani (Saraswati) are engrossed in the love of Radha. O, oy sweet Radhey! please make me Your own. Please call me to Your abode just once, as I am Your own.

To experience the Bliss of maharas, Lord Shiv assumed the form of a Gopi (Shivani). Those Gyanies who have attained the Bliss of impersonal brahm wring their hands in regret when they think of the incomparable Bliss of Radha's love. Now I have understood Your greatness with the Grace of Your rasik saints. Even Goddess Lakchmi and Brahmani (Saraswati) desire for the foot dust of Shree Radha.

O Radha Rani Avadhardani! please think of me and come to me! There is no in the world who is so kind and liberal in showering Divine love as my Beloved Radha Rani.....

How to Describe You.....

I want to take every spiritual aspirant along on the path of progress and I will certainly help him unless he himself is unwilling to proceed.

How can it be that I will leave anybody half way in his spiritual journey! The progress of a particular person depends on the situation in which he is. Till such time as he keeps himself away from the path of devotion, he will be away from the Guru's protection. Kripalu will also be kind to take him again in his fold, even though that person had committed innumerable sins before..

My Master protects me every moment by keeping himself awake. He doesn't eat anything but feeds me whatever I like. He never leaves me alone. How can I leave the company of such a Master of mine, to live with someone else?

God and the Saints are the two personalities who may appear as if They ere not part of a sadhak's existence by Their external behavior; They can make him feel the pangs of separation, whereas in fact They are never separate from him internally. Even when our mortal body leaves us They continue to be with us. They are with us even in the hell and also in the Vaikunth, the abode of Vishnu. We should never entertain the thought that They will leave us alone. We should not only think but feel so....

The Ultimate Goal of All Living Beings...

God can be attained by absorption of the mind in Him with any emotion, whether it be lust, anger, fear, affection, friendship or love. Therefore, one whose mind is totally absorbed in God, even through enmity, attains Him and is liberated from maya. To call such a person a non-believer only reveals one's own lack of faith in God.

Besides this, we have to accept the existence of god as the dispenser of the fruits of actions performed by individual soul, because actions are insentient. They cannot bear fruits on their own. The work of awarding the results of actions at the appropriate time can only be performed by an omniscient personality. Firstly, the individual soul is ignorant. He does not possess knowledge of the actions performed by him in countless past lives. Secondly, if he did have this knowledge, why would he desire to suffer the consequences of his own actions? Therefore, God has to be accepted as the dispenser of the fruits of actions. Even the Nyaya system of philosophy supports this view.

In reality, the existence of God cannot wholly be proved by either perceptual or inferential evidence. Hence, the Vedanta system of philosophy has proved the existence of God by means of scriptural testimony only. Generally, naive people claim that scriptural testimony is ordinary evidence. Only evidence through experience is acceptable as proof. But such people should bear in mind the fact that experience is gained only after spiritual practice and prior to spiritual practice, the words of the scriptures will have to be accepted. Further, if practical experience alone is accepted as proof, then all the actions of the world will be disproved. For example, a person suffering from jaundice sees the color of a white object as yellow; a person bitten by a snake finds the taste of the bitter neem leaf to be sweet; an ant with a grain of salt in its mouth, wanders around a mountain of sugar, experience is imperfect or incomplete, it can be misleading. Therefore, it is only by means of scriptural evidence that the actual truth can be realized. If by practice of spiritual discipline as specified by the scriptures we fail to realize God, then and only then, we have the right to say that there is no God.

Now we have accept the existence of God, but he may question the purpose or necessity of worshipping Him. We could argue that just as we have a President in a country, God may be the President of the entire universe; but why do we need to worship Him? Such an argument is naive because our relations with the President of the country are limited and formal, whereas our relations with God are complete, loving and eternal. Further, we are selfish by nature. We are naturally attached to whoever or whatever fulfils our self-interest. This is an experienced fact. We all desire true, everlasting, unlimited happiness and that happiness is only in God. Therefore. Our most intimate and only relationship is with God. If we could attain even an iota of happiness elsewhere, then our relations with God would have been the same as that with the President of the country.

However, you don’t need to worry about attaining God. He is easily attainable. I can assure you that you do not have to engage in any spiritual discipline to realize Him. You may argue, “if we do not have to engage in spiritual discipline, how is it that we have not yet attained Divine Bliss?” Yes, this is a valid question. That is just what needs to be understood. Have a little patience and you will understand everything.

Let us reflect upon the essential nature of God, because the Vedas declare,

Iha chedashakad boddhum prak sharirasya visrasah

Tatah sargeshu lokeshu shariratvaya kalpate

(Katha Up.2.3.4)

“Having acquired a human body if we do not realize God, we will have to suffer in the endless cycle of birth and death.” This will be our greatest mistake. Therefore, realizing the importance of the human form, we must acquire knowledge of God so that we can attain our absolute, ultimate goal of Supreme Bliss.

Anupam neelo tanu sarkar.....

Anupam neelo tanu sarkar.

Kou kaha indraneel mani sam kou, neela jalada anuhar.

Kou kaha neela kamala sama neelo, tanu chhavi Nanda-kumar.

In teenon ka prithak prithak hai, gun budha karahu vichar.

Yate in tinon ke guna ka, mishrana kar taiyar.

Puni usamen mishran karu chinmaya, prem sudha ras-sar.

Kaha ‘Kripalu’ tanu upama as jas, tanu Vrishbhanu-dular.

The beautiful blue-complexion of Shri Krishna’s divine body is unmatched anywhere. Some Rasik Saints have compared it to a blue sapphire, others to a bluish rain-laden cloud. Some Rasik Saints have said Krishna’s beautiful complexion is like a blue lotus. A sapphire, cloud and lotus all have different unique qualities. A sapphire is smooth with a sparkling blue radiance. A bluish cloud is soft and cool. A blue lotus is refreshing and fragrant. If all of these unique qualities were mixed together, And then they were combined with the nectar of divine love, this would to some extent give an idea of the beauty of Shri Krishna’s blue complexion. According to Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj, the transcendental divine form of Shri Krishna can only truly be compared to the divine form of Shri Radha. (Although Saints use material examples to help us visualise Shri Krishna’s divine form, in reality, it has no comparison to anything in the material world.)
