Relentless nirdosh-buddhi towards the Pratyaksh Swaroop is the supreme worship. Relentless nirdosh-buddhi towards His devotees is the ultimate attainment: Gunatit Gnan Samadhi - Pappa

 

We have been extemely fortunate to discover, recognise and accept the Pratyash Swaroop in human form, a swaroop who is in constant communion with God. We have accepted this fact totally - with our heart, mind and soul.

 

Once this has been established, the devotee obeys the Swaroop and worships the Lord in order to fulfil his own wishes and desires. He will argue the following: ‘Lord, if I am yours and you are mine, should you not grant all my wishes?”. The Pratyaksh Swaroop who remains sumberged in Gunatit-bhav will only grant those wishes which are beneficial, which enhance and aid the purification process of his chitta and are necessary in his sadhana. Just as a mother will stop her child from reaching for a sharp knife but will not allow it to get hurt, the Pratyaksh Swaroop is our divine ‘Gunatit Mother’ who will not grant any wishes which may add to our prarabhdas (fate). Thus the devotee may become antagonistic and discontented and will begin to doubt the greatness of the swaroop. Hence the continuity of nirdosh-buddhi in the Pratyaksh Swaroop will not be maintained because of the devotee’s vacillating faith and conviction toward the swaroop. The Lord bestows such a devotee with the friendship and association of a true Gunatit Sant (Gunatit Swaroop) who will pray for him. Gradually His sankalps (prayers with powerful determination) will bring about such changes in the devotee that he will regard the Gunatit Sant as his soul, the focal-point of his life (his drashta) - one who inspires him, providing him with the energy and motivation to live according to the Lord’s wishes. He will begin to disregard himself and his own beliefs in favour of those ideals and principles held by the Gunatit Sant. He will consider everything about himself to be false, accepting the Gunatit Sant as the ultimate truth. Due to the love and mahatmya he has for the Gunatit Sant he progresses from the level where he believed ‘The Lord is Mine’ to a spiritually higher stage of ‘I belong to the Lord’. After this, he will never take manushya-bhav in God - i.e. he will never doubt the greatness of the Pratyaksh Swaroop. Even if his wishes and desires are not fulfilled - he will accept this as his own déhabhav and would continue to do séva and worship as advised by the Gunatit Sant. He will fight his own mind and body and would gain control of his mind with the strength afforded by the Sant.

 

His nirosh-buddhi towards the Pratyaksh Swaroop will not be forsaken or renounced - He will steadfastly maintain that ‘the Lord loves him and inspires events which are beneficial - which will aid the process of his purification and are necessary for the redemption of his soul’ - This is a belief, a conviction which emerges as a result of the blessings and grace bestowed upon him by the Gunatit Sant. Thus the nirdosh-buddhi practised by one who has completely surrendered himself to the Pratyaksh Swaroop is the supreme worship.

 

As he continually practices this worship, remaining submerged in smruti, seeking spiritual guidance from the Gunatit Sant, and serving the Lord with mahatmya - with the sole intention of pleasing the Lord, he gradually begins to accept that the Lord's devotees (sambandhwalas) are all inspired by the Lord Himself. This belief becomes strongly ingrained in his mind and intellect. He eventually accepts the mahatmya of the Lord as stated in Vachnamruts G. I. 62, G. II.13, G. III.2 and G. III.30. Slowly and surely, as he continues to worship and serve the Lord, this belief becomes solid and unwavering - eventually he accepts that all devotees of the Lord (all sambandh-wala) are ‘souls in the process of purification’ whose behaviour and actions are inspired by the almighty supreme controller - the Pratyaksh Swaroop Himself. Thus no matter what those devotees say or do, he will not judge them or any events with his own mind, understanding or intellect. He will not scrutinise their behaviour nor arbitrate about the rights and wrongs, justices and injustices - instead he will pray to maintain the spiritual equilibrium, an unbiased stance. He will begin to remember the Lord, pleading to Him for strength. Thus he will pray: “Lord, you have brought these events before me, please guide and inspire me. What should I do in this instance to serve you?”

 

The Lord will show him the way and he will then act as inspired by the Lord but will not under any circumstances take offence of any sambandhwala (i.e those who participated in that particular incident). If he is inspired by the Lord such that he is not required to do anything , then he will do nothing... the spiritual attainment of his mind and body will be such that he will be able to stand back and observe the 'leela' of the Lord at work. Such spiritual attainment of the mind and body is the supreme spiritual attainment.
