Moral Living And Firm Refuge in God
Every morning while Swamishri returned to his residence after his puja, youths performed brief skits to please him. This morning, they enacted a real-life situation that arises in pols on the day of the kite flying festival. Then in their hectic pursuit to claim a severed kite a group of youths accidently knocked off an elderly man riding his bicycle. When one of the youths claimed the kite the others started roughing him up.
Swamishri tried to check them from the spat by saying aloud, “Brothers, do not fight, don’t fight! Why are you fighting for a mere kite!” By that time the youths came upto Swamishri. One of them told the group, “Why are you after kites? Why don’t you catch what is really to be caught?” Another participant replied, “We have really got what we want.” Then a youth with a ball of entangled kite string prayed to Swamishri, “There are a lot of entanglements in our householder’s life. Please disentangle them for us.”
Swamishri took the entangled ball of kite string in his hand and said, “Observe moral instructions (niyam-dharma) properly and take firm refuge (ashro) in God, then all be well.”

બ્રહ્મસ્વરૂપ પ્રમુખસ્વામી મહારાજની પ્રેરક પ્રસંગ-સ્મૃતિઓ
તા. 30-12-2010, મુંબઈ
સ્વામીશ્રી પરવારીને બહાર પધાર્યા. લિફ્ટની સામેના કાચ તરફ રામસ્વરૂપ સ્વામીએ સ્વામીશ્રીને દૃષ્ટિ કરાવીને કહ્યું કે ‘બરાબર સામે કોહિનૂર (મિલ) દેખાય છે.’
‘કોહિનૂર તને મળ્યો ?’
‘ના, બાપા !’ સાહજિક રીતે રામસ્વરૂપ સ્વામીએ કહ્યું.
એટલે હસતાં હસતાં સ્વામીશ્રી કહે : ‘હજી શોધ્યા કરે છે ?’
સ્વામીશ્રીના આ પ્રશ્નમાં જ તેઓને ઉત્તર મળી ગયો. એટલે કહે : ‘ના, મળી ગયો.’
Unparalleled Love Towards God
Thereupon Muktãnand Swãmi asked, "Mahãrãj, how can unparalleled love towards God be developed?"
Shriji Mahãrãj replied, "A person should have the following understanding: Firstly, conviction of God; i.e., 'He who I have attained is undoubtedly God Himself'. He should also have the attributes of an ãstik. Furthermore, he should realise the divine powers of God; i.e., 'This God is the master of Brahmamahol, Golok, Shwetdwip and all of the other abodes. He is the master of countless millions of brahmãnds and is the all-doer.' He should never believe Purush, kãl, karma, mãyã, the three gunas, the 24 elements, or Brahmã and the other demigods to be the creators of this brahmãnd; instead, he should realise only Purushottam Bhagwãn to be the creator and the antaryãmi of all. Such an understanding, along with faith in the manifest form of God, is the only way to develop unparalleled love for God."
