Truth has nothing to do with the present organized religions. It is far beyond the limited dictates and bare doctrines of religions. Truth implies simply giving up Maya, i.e., release from the false. The false expresses itself through the bindings of Kama, Krodha and Kanchana—lust, anger and greed. Anybody can aspire for the Truth; and every one can attain it. Here there are no restrictions of caste or prejudices. The more you think of the false, the greater is your anxiety and the greater the fears attendant upon it.
And what are these fears and anxieties? They are the refuse, the "badbu” of your own mind. The Maya or illusion is so very strong that it subdues and captivates even great heroes. To subdue the forces of ignorance is, there fore, the real task before true heroes, who are very rare. He who is disinterested in materialistic life becomes either the greatest sinner or a real Masi in spiritual life. The great Masters of their times have been most disinterested in materialistic life. They were the heroes of the spiritual world.
Seek that Truth, which will give you everlasting bliss and real knowledge! You will then be able to raise others also and save them from the entanglements of the world. Keep your mind quiet, steady and firm. Do not submit to desires; but try to control them. One who can not restrain his tongue can not restrain his mind. One who can not restrain his mind can not restrain his action. One who can not restrain his action can not restrain himself. And one who can not restrain himself can not gain his Infinite Self.
To give up the false life does not mean committing physical suicide. But it means living without any thought of the self. It is to invite an utterly selfless life or living death. Giving up the false life means the death of thoughts, desires and even the ego-mind itself. People die a thousand deaths; but they are where they are, chained to the wheel of births and deaths.
Once you surrender yourself to a Perfect Master he has to do his duty towards you. He can not escape that. The only thing which is required that you should have unbounded and unswerving faith. And that will enable him to do his duties towards you. So, take your Guru to be your God. And give unto him the surrenderance of full faith and the ungrudging. service of unfaltering love.
The Truth-realized Master is here to give. He comes down for duty. He is the fountain of spiritual force; and the waters of pure spirituality flow from this source as in a river.
