The munis replied, "No action of God is outside the scriptures. So, Mahãrãj, what is the reason behind a person developing faith and then losing it?"
Shriji Mahãrãj explained, "Whosoever develops faith in God does so only through the scriptures. Why? Because the scriptures describe the characteristics of God as well as the characteristics of the Sant. So, only faith developed through the scriptures remains staunch. On the other hand, faith developed by one's own mind, without the help of the scriptures, eventually dissolves."
