BELIEF IN GURU’S DOERSHIP
13 July, Mumbai
One hundred years ago today Yogiji Maharaj joined Shastriji Maharaj in the BAPS, bringing with him the sacred murti of Shri Harikrishna Maharaj.
Adarshjivan Swami praised Swamishri’s devotion, “You have never forgotten Harikrishna Maharaj in all your activities. Yogiji Maharaj brought him into the BAPS, and you have spread his glory throughout the world. You also took him to the United Nations assembly.
Swamishri replied humbly, “It is all due to his [Yogiji Maharaj’s] wish. Otherwise what is it that I can accomplish! When he spoke of Jamrala we took it to be as good as Germany. So whatever that has been achieved is due to his wish.”
Adarshjivan Swami added, “His [Yogiji Maharaj’s] wish and your effort [in realizing it].”
Swamishri argued, “His wish is of prime importance.”
Adarshjivan Swami explained, “Everyone makes wishes but one who translates them into reality is also important.”
Swamishri reiterated humbly, “It is because of his wish that all things are possible, whereas I am unable to do anything.”
In spite of all his incalculable endeavours we find that Swamishri is ever humble and grounded firmly in his conviction of guru Yogiji Maharaj’s doership.
