We have this human body, but through satsang and the God-communion sadhu one comes to understand how to use it to attain moksha ..."

21 April 2001 (V.S. 2057, Chaitra Vad 13) Saturday, Kuwait

The evening assembly commenced in the Indian Embassy auditorium. After discourses and bhajans, Swamishri finally blessed the audience, saying, "This human birth has been given for offering devotion to God and attaining liberation, but not to indulge and enjoy the worldly pleasures. The worst misery in life is that of birth and death (janma-maran). No one can remedy mental anguish. It is God only who protects one from such pain and misery. As long as there is igorance one has to suffer the cycles of birth and death. This ignorance means 'I'ness and 'Mine'ness ...
"The body requires food to survive. Similarly, to 'survive', the atma's food is 'bhakti' for God. Through 'bhakti' it acquires strength and grows spiritually. When one attains a God-communion sadhu, only then does one become liberated from 'I'ness and attain atma - realization. Thereafter, by offering bhakti to God does he attain liberation and eternal happiness ..."
