After performing the shangar arti Swamishri did darshan of Shastriji Maharaj and Yogiji Maharaj at their respective shrines. Then, on not seeing Rahul among the sadhaks from America, Swamishri asked as to where he was.
"He is writing letters," a sadhak replied.
Swamishri responded, "Writing letters, now! One should be present when it is arti time, have lunch during lunchtime, and do darshan during darshan time. Do whatever is to be done according to the prescribed schedules. One should perform one's spiritual rituals properly."
Swamishri insists upon the performance of or attendance in rituals like arti, discourses, etc. for spiritual progress.
