|I visited your web site and I have to say that your words spoke to me. For years I've been trying to find the answers to my salvation and what life means. Your book is truly a piece of godly work. I find that when I'm lost in this world of confusion I read Dadaji words to guide me through a world that confuses me so. To read his work is truly a inner experience in which every soul in this world should experience. --- Mike Kellerman, Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA|
|Who am I?|| Where did I come from?
|| Why am I here?
|| What am I to do?
|| How can I find God?
|| When I die where will I go?
What's the use of this life? You are born. Why? It is to realize God or Self, whatever you may call it. We have come here to make love to Him, to be bathed in His Love and to vibrate His Love through the actions that come our way. |
We have come for some days to play. Here is a female, here is a male. She has got all the senses and desires, everything. He has also got the same thing. Both are the same. That is for His Play. Male and female are only for the theater, the stage, His Leela (Divine Play). Body and life bestowed on you by God are to be fully tasted and enjoyed.
|This time of the body is temporary. We are actors and we are paid according to our performance. Play your part well in the Vraja Leela (God's Play of Love), shaking off desires and obsessions. Our duty is to watch His Leela (Play) as passive witnesses. Be always in a state of Swabhava (natural state of Oneness with Him) free of all sense of want.|
|You have sojourned here for relishing His Rasa (tasting God's Love). You have come here to have a taste of His Vraja Leela (God's Play of Love) which this world displays. Vraja Leela is symbolized by copulation, moving to and fro between the opposite poles like a pendulum, the characteristic of duality and mental function. It is a stage where we are to enact our respective roles for a stipulated period of time.|
|Just try to love Him and do your duty. Duty is the first thing. Duty is Karma, work. Your responsibility is to perform your actions with full sincerity and honesty. You must do Karma (activities). There is no knowledge without Karma. You are seeing, hearing, eating something...all this is Karma, and this Karma is knowledge.|
|Go through your daily activities. Karma, whatever one does is Karma. Actions and reactions in the mind lead to one's activity. Let the fruit of action be decided and bestowed by Him because the result comes form Him. One cannot undertake any work without a pragmatic end in view. So, with attachment one has to do one's work, although without any desire for the results. No sooner has the work been finished then the attachment evaporates. That should be the mental attitude.|
|You have come here for certain work. You shall have to do it. Afterward you shall have to go to your permanent House. By remembering God, you realize Him. That is true work. Work is worship when the sole frame of reference is the Soul, the vibrant Mahanam (God's Name within your heart).|
|Every bit of work is worship. But the moment any kind of work grips your consciousness as the one thing indispensable and it stems the tide of your life, it is invested with the multiple nuances and drives of your ego and lacks spirituality.|
|Without this human body no other world divinities can taste His Love. In the body of a person resides Govinda (Supreme Truth), so the body is to be treated as His Temple and taken care of. Only for performing the bodily duties has the riches of the body been given. Eat, drink, do everything, but remember Him, Who is inside the body. To move according to nature is the only safe course.|
|You have come here to do all sorts of acting. You have come here as a guest. You have taken your body as a temporary place to enjoy God in the Maya (creative force of God which manifests in ever-changing nature).|
|We have come here to do all sorts of acting. We have come here as guests. I am here with this body. Just maintain the body, nothing else. Body is not mine. I have taken that Ashram (body, the temple of God) as a temporary place to enjoy Him in the Maya (God's creative force which manifests in nature, Prakriti, and is therefore God's Grace to us). When we have come here, we have come with mind, senses, desires and attachments. We shall have to give something to them. If you stop everything, they will revolt.|
|To be born with human form in this mortal world has only one happy object. That is to relish the Joy of God's Love. Only it is the tendency of the human mind to run under the compulsion of innumerable allurements and attachments. But even being involved in them what a Supreme Blessing is this human birth. How ineffably is this world filled with beauty and flavor! We have come to taste it! But, we have become otherwise engaged. Be always with God's Name then the objective with which you have come here will be realized.|
|We have come here to do a particular work. How will it go unless we do that? An individual can at best put in effort, regardless of the result. Work is one's own Dharma (religion). Work itself is sacrifice. Work is penance.|
Your one hand is held by Him and the other one is left free for your daily actions. So go ahead, no need for worry. Dadaji is always with you. We have come to enjoy His Play, remember Him with love and remain in a natural state.
