On the day of Jeth Sud 5th, Bapashri, showing his favour, talked. He said those devotees and saints, who have done penance for lakhs of years, have opportunity of meeting brahmchari like Nirgunanandji. Karshanbhakta was reading Shikshapatri. There was hundred rupees note in that book which dropped. That note was taken by a saint and kept it. That devotee use to earn only eight dokda (currency of Kutch) per day so the loss of hundred rupees was much for him. How much pain that would have been of losing hundred rupee! Maharaj will not accept seva without becoming pure. In Vachanamrut, it is said that pooja should be done after bath. After getting up, morning routine should be completed and then one should take bath. If one takes bath before morning routine, Bapashri says God will not accept your seva if you have not become like Dev. He is divine. Maharaj will also not accept his seva even though he may do thousand rosaries in the temple. This is also the lesson for the householder. Which seva is more beneficial? We should think of benefit. Maharaj and Muktas know what is going on in our Tan, Man, Chit.

Then Bapashri said by keeping constant memory of Maharaj, our vruti (tendency) becomes divine and then luminescence fountain appear brightly and Murti will also appear luminous. This opportunity is good. But our resolutions are of extrovert tendency. Then saint said, we should not care for past or future, only care for happiness of Murti.” Bapashri said, “If there is grace of Maharaj and Muktas on us and such a practice that makes us see Murti, happiness of Murti will come. Five objects of senses viz. word, touch, beauty, taste, smell should be controlled, and if satwa attribute is polluted, Muktas will be displeased. Therefore, we should behave with ‘satwa‘ attribute. Without satwa attribute, modesty of guru will be violated. Therefore, pure satwa attribute should be kept. Polluted one should be kept aside. The one who keeps satwa attribute would not care for words. Sadanand Swami was beaten with stick by ‘Nagda Vairagi (sect of naked sadhus)’ and the stick broke. Even than Swami said, ‘mere Gurubhai ki achhi sisam ki lakdi bhang gai‘ – (my guru brother’s fine teak wood stick is broken). He did not care for the injury. He said that let the body has been injured and, ‘Deh to kuchh kam ka nahi hai‘ (the body is useless). We should become such. Senses do not remain in control in Jagrut or swapna state (awaken and dream state). They become strong and they make us to go on fast. Therefore, they should be controlled.

Swami Ishwarcharandasji said, “In the second question it is said that inwardly or outwardly one should keep his tendency for God’s Murti-it is called ‘antardrasti‘ (inward sight), How to understand outward and inward?” Bapashri said, “The one who believes oneself the form of body and imagines Murti, it is called outward sight and vruttis (tendencies) are called back and imagines Murti in the soul is called inward tendency. It means feeling of beyond the physical world (avarbhav). The one who believes oneself as the form of Purushottam and sees Murti in front of him, it is called seeing Murti from outside and if one sees Murti remaining inside the Murti, he is called seeing Murti inwardly (parbhav). It means he sees in Akshardham. Therefore at this place if he sees introvertly or extrovertly, it is called ‘antardrasti‘ (inward sight) – remaining inside Murti is parbhav (Akshardham) and if he sees remaining outside Murti is called ‘avarbhav‘ (beyond physical world). || 234 ||
