Swami Papa Ramdas

 

The Sadhaka should, in the first place, be fired with an intense aspiration for his spiritual regeneration and the attainment of the highest goal – God. Then, contact of saints should follow. The ego, having its sway on him, refuses to yield and sets up all kinds of obstacles on his path. It often poses as the Supreme Himself and leads him astray.

 

At the beginning the Sadhaka finds it hard to distinguish the divine guidance from the promptings of the mere mind.

 

The method, by adopting which he can safely progress on the divine path, is to surrender himself entirely to the all-powerful God within him by constantly thinking of Him and His attributes. It is by constant remembrance of Him alone that he develops the needed soul-force to put down the mind and its machinations and rise superior to it. Instead of being the slave of the mind, he should be the master of it.

I feel ashamed to stand before God and seek for his blessings the next time. What should I do?

 

If you sincerely pray to get the obstacle removed, your prayer shall be fulfilled

 

To protect one from five senses one need to keep a vigilant watchman or a ferocious dog and that is nothing but the divine names of the Lord.

 

The Mahamaya (greatest illusion), the mind, can be brought under control slowly and steadily by Namakirtan alone.

 

Drench your senses in the enchanting form of Krishna, His stories, His glory and His Divine Name. The mind is effortlessly controlled!

 

What is difficult for human beings? The constant control of the mind.

 

The name of God is more powerful than the senses. It will become all right in time if you practise regularly.

 

If we think of God and pray to Him for His guidance and His grace, we shall derive strength to battle against these temptations and conquer our weaknesses

 

Likewise, never once does a true disciple doubt, if his Guru has conquered his senses!

 

If the mind troubles?

 

“It is all right even if you do not hold your senses under control. Keep doing Năma Sankirtan. The ‘indriyăs’ (senses) will automatically come under control!”
