What I want to share from my experiences is that love conquers everything.It is my hope that it will inspire the readers to open their hearts to the Divine. If we can try to understand that we all are equally part of the Divine and are here to achieve this greater Truth and to realise our Self - if we make this our goal and do everything with Love…then everything will be lovely and you will always be happy.

He is the personification of calmness....

Often there is a question that we all ask: who is our Satguru? Isn’t it a good question? Some lucky people know and some, who are to be lucky, they are waiting to know. This search actually is not only in one life, but has been for many lives. We search for our Satguru always, because it’s only the Satguru that will lead us out of this illusion. Only the Satguru can give us a blessing and guide us and make us Realise our True Self. But to find the Satguru is very often difficult. We go through many ups and downs. We keep searching, thinking we will find the Satguru. We pray to God “God, send my Satguru.” But yet, very often, when the Satguru is in front of somebody, they don’t know it, because in the people’s minds, how they fashion a Guru is completely different to how the Satguru is in reality. It’s the same when we look at Mahavatar Babaji. We have a beautiful murti, a beautiful Deity here. In our mind we have an image of the Jagat Guru, but yet I tell you, He is not like that. When we look at Him, He is strict. He is strict, when He has to be strict, but He is the personification of calmness. At all times, no matter what, He is always calm. And this is the quality of a Satguru.

The quality of calmness is very important. How can a master guide if he is not calm? And this is the greatness of a Satguru. No matter what happens, he will always stay calm. So now, you will all go and test your Satguru? Like I said during Guru Purnima, the best way is to ask the Satguru directly or the Guru directly. So, the search is to see this quality of calmness. When you have found your Satguru, surrender and stop asking questions. The mind, like I always say, is always full of doubt. If you don’t give the Satguru a chance to hold your hand and guide you out of it, you will move away from this. You will lose a chance. So, let the Satguru hold your hand and guide you. The feeling that you have, the joy when the Satguru is in front of you, the same feeling is reflected back to you. The Satguru will never show the feeling, but you will feel it. He knows it, but he wants you to know
