On evening of Kartak Sud 11th, the 2nd Vachanamrt of Gadhada First Chapter was being read in the assembly. In it, there is reference about vairagya. Bapasri said, “Everything upto Aksar is perishable and to understand it to be perishable is called vairagya. Moreover, everything beyond Prakrti and up to Aksar is imperishable, and to understand it to be perishable is also called vairagya. The latter vairagya is true vairagya. Similarly, jnan is also of many kinds; but when one gets experiential knowledge, it is true jnan. To remain engrossed in Murti is called experiential knowledge. ‘Rasbas hoi rahi rasiya sang jyun misari paymanhi bhali’ (I have become engrossed in Murti just as sugar gets mixed in milk). We should remain in Murti in this way and should not come out of It. The one who dwells in Murti becomes free from the dualities like mine-yours, sadhu-householder, etc. and he wants nothing. He does not have emphasis on the spiritual efforts like dharma, jnan, vairagya, etc. He becomes oblivious of everything except Murti. He does not insist anything except Murti. If some one says, ‘You are such a devotee!’, then we should understand that we are not in the category of devotee. Our category is that of mukta- we are anadi mukta. We belong to these two categories. A parsad wears white clothes and is called a devotee; but we should inwardly consider him as mukta. You are a sadhu but if someone calls you a devotee, how would you feel? Therefore, we should consider them as mukta. When he becomes a sadhu, he will be called a sadhu, but not a devotee. Therefore, a sadhu should also be called mukta. When a sadhu goes to Aksardham, it is better to say that a mukta has come to Aksardham.”

Then the 4th Vachanamrt of Gadhada First Chapter was being read. There is a reference about Naradji. Bapasri asked, “Why would have Naradji gone to Dwarka?” The saints replied, “When Sri Krsna went to Dwarka from Mathura, Naradji also went with him.” Bapasri said, “Once a sadhu who wanted to go to Dwarka had come here from Amdavad. I persuaded him not to go to Dwarka, but he did not trust me and argued that it is the command of Maharaj to go to Dwarka. I told him that according to Sriji Maharaj Dwarka means the place where the door of liberation opens. Wherever there are muktas and their darsan and association, we should take it to be Dwarka. A saint opens the door of liberation, i.e., he liberates. One should go there for his darsan. This can be understood through the association of muktas.”

Then the 63rd Vachanamrt of Gadhada First Chapter was being read. There is reference of the defect in conviction of God. Bapasri said, “One who has defect in conviction of God will get delighted when God performs divine actions; but when God performs actions befitting a human being, he gets confused and thinks whether He is God or not!” Then there came a reference about complete conviction of God. Swami Isvarcharanadasji said to Bapasri, “In the Vachanamrt, women are compared to Sita, Rukmini and Laksmi. Men are compared to Gops of Vrndavan. Is Sri Krsna included in Gop or not?” Bapasri replied that he is included. Khimjibhai asked Bapasri, “Who is called mahamuni?” Bapasri said, “Those who are great among you may answer that question.” Khimjibhai said, “Just you are great.” Bapasri said, “Anadi muktas dwelling in Murti are called mahamuni. In devotional song composed by Premanand Swami it is said, ‘Mahamukta puje jeni paduka re lol’ (great muktas worship His sandals). It is these saints who are Mahamukta or mahamuni.”

Purani Kesavpriyadasji asked, “Bapa! Who should be considered to be meek?” Bapasri replied “The one who has faith in the commands and words of Sriji Maharaj should be considered to be meek. In this world, people belonging to scheduled castes are called meek; but we should know those devotees or saints of God to be meek who bear harassment of ignorant people.”

Swami Isvarcharanadasji said, “Bapa! You have sponsored a banquet in the temple of Bhuj on the day of your birthday. That occasion would be brahmayajna in which the saints would dine. So please attach your followers here to Murti.” Bapasri said, “Nowadays, God endows liberation just out of His grace; so He aboundantly showers His grace. But, you all will have to get attached to Murti. You get attached to Murti and I will get you bliss.” He gave such a boon.

Swami Isvarcharanadasji asked, “You say that you will get us bliss. Is that bliss given by the one whom an aspirant has accepted as his guru in this world or by God Himself?” Bapasri replied, “A guru takes his disciple in Murti and then bliss is given by Maharaj. There is no one in between who can give the bliss. The disciple becomes just as great as his guru is. Just as a guru enjoys the bliss of Murti, similarly his disciple also enjoys the bliss of Murti.”

Then Bapasri came to Dhanjibhai’s house for lunch and came back to the temple after having lunch. Then pointing to Swami Svetvaikunthdasji Bapasri said, “This is my purani.” And holding the hand of Swami Isvarcharanadasji Bapasri said, “This is my obedient.” And again pointing to Swami Vrndavandasji he said,

“This is my guru.” Then Bapasri asked Swami Ghansyamjivandasji, “Who is your guru?” He replied that Yajnapurusdasji was his guru. Bapasri corrected him saying, “He is not your guru. Your guru is Anadi Mukta Mahanubhavanand Swami. He was having great spiritual powers. You have become Sadguru by his blessings and so you have continued his tradition.” Then Bapasri jokingly said, “Ham sab janta hai (I know everything).”

Then Bapasri and all saints and devotees came to Vrspur. There Ramji Devji came to Bapasri and bowed down to him. Bapasri asked him, “Are you suffering from fever?” Replying he said, “Its turn is tomorrow as it comes on alternate day.” Bapasri said, “The fever is wide spread in this village and it is also wide spread in Bharasar.” Then Swami said, “Since you accepted fever, the prasadi of it is distributed all over the cosmos.” Then Bapasri talked about the letter written by Dr. Nagardasbhai of Viramgam which read, “My hospital remains crowded from morning to evening.” Then Swamisri said, “Now as you have let your illness go, the illness spread everywhere will also go.” At that time, praising Dr. Nagardasbhai, Bapasri said, “He has much love for me, knows greatness of Maharaj and he is always ready to render services for the Satsang with his body, mind and wealth.” || 9 ||
