Scriptural and Dharmik Studies
Shastriji Maharaj resumed and completed his studies of Karak from Bholanath Bhatt in Vartal. In Samvat year 1944, after the Prabodhini Ekadashi festival, Swamishri commenced studying Kirtaarjuniya from Brahmachari Balkrishnanand. The first and eighth day of each lunar month would be a holiday and on these days he would associate with Vignandas Swami or Mahapurushdas Swami. In this way, he simultaneously studied scriptures and gained knowledge of Ekantik dharma. Swamishri continuously endeavoured to be well versed in all types of knowledge.
સાધુથી કોઈ મોટી પદવી નથી...
(તા. ૧૭-૦૧-૨૦૦૮, મુંબઈ)
સંતોએ કહ્યું, 'નોબલ પારિતોષિકમાં જે ખરેખરા હોય એ રહી જાય છે.'
સ્વામીશ્રી કહે, 'જે ખરેખરા હોય એ નોબલ મળે એવું ઇચ્છતા જ નથી હોતા. લોકો તો પછી ભૂલી જ જાય છે. મહારાજે પણ કહ્યું છે કે સાધુથી કોઈ મોટી પદવી નથી.'
Attributes for Remaining Firm in Satsang
Thereafter Shuk Muni asked, "By what characteristic can one recognise a person who would never lapse in his observance of dharma, even under the most difficult circumstances?"
Shriji Mahãrãj replied, "A person whose nature is such that he is diligent in obeying the injunctions of God, and who would never disobey any injunction, however minor or major, will never regress from observing dharma, irrespective of the circumstances. Therefore, only his dharma remains firm who is resolute in obeying God's injunctions, and only his satsang remains firm."
