(how company of saints affects
How the company of Saints affects us is best explained by the phenomenon of coating.
We can make Brass look like gold by coating and polishing it with liquid gold.
If we coat it again and again the upper layer of gold would become so thick that
with passage of time we may tend to forget the item was made of Brass. What we
see gets stored in our memory cells. What is inherent pales into insignificance.
Human Life whenever a beastly character comes into the company of a saint for
a longer time ... He tends to forget his own identity and temporarily merges into
the saintly fold. If he remains in such association for a longer period ... Chances
are he may permanently change himself. Owing to circumstances this transformed
Saintly character if falls into bad company again may even become notorious than
is primarily unto the individual concerned whether to remain merged in his new
identity or return back to his earlier fold. Your eagerness with which you seek
and your self control alone would decide your future!! If you desire to see
God then you ought to have a God-realized
Guru! If you seek blessing of God than any holy person will do. It is only a Guru
who on the basis of your thought pattern and analyzing your behavior would stop
your falling into vices again.
A true guide and preacher never forces upon a pupil to follow a certain path ...
By explaining the plus and minus points of behavioral practice, he can try your
achieving goal at the earliest. To follow or not to follow is your job and only
your job!!! A realized
Guru is the biggest asset of any pupil on this Earthly abode (A Sojourn
for the Atman
soul within). How to seek a proper
Guru! You have neither the competence nor wisdom to distinguish a true
Guru from a false one.
False proclaimers of being true son of God roam the streets in abundance.
Getting into their clutches is like handing over the water of your
Life to a pitcher where it shall only rot and decay. So called Sadhus
and preachers ... followers of unethical practices can completely
mar the ambitions of a true Sadhaka (novice on the path of God).
Not able to distinguish right from wrong he learns what is taught
to him. What pity. Where has our common sense gone! Why did we permit
ourselves to fall into the lap of such Guruís submissively patronizing
them. Our inner
voice always prompts us when we feel we are being cheated!!
atma bodha satsanga pravachan an essential ingredient of Spiritual Path!
has given us instinct and knowledge for ourselves to self assess ... What is good
or bad for us!! We must contentiously use our intellect in selection of a Guru
by hit and trial method. There have been many who have realized and gone back
to the abode of the Almighty
Lord. Their experiences and narrationís available in their Biographies
and Autobiographies will act as the guide posts ... To steer you on the right
