On the day of Jeth Sud 3rd, Bapashri, showing his favour, talked. He said, “Great sin means harassing the one who is an orphan. It is a great sin. Now a day the work of betrayal is in full swing. A saint is inauspicious, and he criticizes another saint and thus he does the work of betrayal. If you stop flowing water, it may go haywire (out of control). In such situation, even the religious persons suffer. What would happen of those saints who are worshipping God, if they are disturbed? You (addressing saint) have no right to take part in worldly matters even then you are taking part. What is the meaning of greatness of great saints/ people? The best example is that of Swami Nirgundasji, he never took part in worldly matter till he lived. Sadguru Balramji Sashtri was building a temple in Dabhan. Sadguru Nirgundasji Swami scolded him and told him give up work otherwise, you will be away from your goal. Acharyaji Shri Keshavprasadji Maharaj requested Swami not to scold but he did- he was a real saint. Now- a- days faithless persons have upper hand. They are with us but act contrary to our faith. Mumukshu are also made unsteady in their faith by telling them devilish words and Mumukshu fall from their path. Therefore, they should keep faith in him whose words are good, so that they are saved. Such types of discourses are going on-enjoying it- but if there are differences, relationship will be affected. If Muktas are betrayed, Jiva will become devilish. Muktas do not get angry at all but Jiva itself becomes devilish. Just as person may have hundred sons and one may be idle, even then the father does not wish ill of him. Similarly, Muktas think well even of the meanest Jiva. Jiva behaves rudely because of illusion. Life is very short and try to achieve goal. Keep mercy on all. ‘Daya dharam ko mul hai‘ (mercy is the root of dharma).

Then in the assembly, there was an incident about saints. The question was “Do saints perform mental worship, rosary, meditation?” A saint replied that some might be doing and some might not be. Then Bapashri said, “Why have they become saints? Today Shriji Maharaj Himself moves in satang, he is not recognized by a sinner and demon and he who is knowledgeable and he who is divine will know him. Where is such achievement? See the achievement of Shiva, Brahma, and Saubhri! Compare their achievement with this achievement. Greatness of today is beyond words. Brahma, Shiva, Vishnu manage their respective Brahmand (cosmos). The administrator of such infinite Brahmands is Iswar and above all, there is great Mukta Maharaj whom we have met. || 231 ||
