Over and over our Gurujans have described in their granths, pravachans, and have sung about chaitanaya bhav, gyan, and loving Ram by doing jap, simran, seva, sanyam, and satsang.
Ram Naam Jab Jage Abhang, Chetan-Bhav Jage Sukh Sang ….
Ram Naam Sudha-Ras Saagar, Ram Naam Gyaan-Gun Aagar ….
Ram Simran Sab Se Ooncha, Ram Shakti Sukh Gyaan Samoocha …. (Amritvani)
Is that happening in our lives – are we experiencing that love?
Most of us will probably answer – NO, or not enough. How do we do that … simply listen to our Gurus and follow their direction. Swamiji Maharaj and our Gurujans ask us to do, “adhik se adhik jaap karo”, but we do not pay attention to that and keep on trying to fulfill our wish list, desires, or kamanas, instead.
We are instructed to study Gitaji, and Ramayanji, instead we read novels and filmi magazine, watch TV and waste our time.
In Bhakti Prakash, Swamiji Maharaj points to us that, “Ram Prem Swaroop” hai. That prem bhavana will surely rise in us if we do jap with love, remember Ram’s gun with love, and serve Ram’s human beings, and other beings with love. So loving Ram means loving Divine Love. Love is complete in itself.
Let us not lose hope, instead, have full faith in Ram Naam and in our Gurujans’ teachings. Ram is always there to help, woh to ang-sang hai. Ram Naam to taar deta hai, Ram ka kaam hi sab ko Ram banana hai – baaki tau choti-moti baaten hain.
Be inspired, be chaitnaya bhav (not deh bhav), love Gyaan, Love Ram, and most of all – let us serve our Gurujans in every way possible.
