4) What are the qualities sadhak/sadhikas should have to increase their sadhana?
- Regular study of the scriptures: Everyday, even if it is only for a little while, Listen to Satsang daily, study the biographies of God-realized saints , and the scriptures that encourage you towards God-realization.
- Balanced diet and judicious fasting: Neither should you starve nor should you over-eat. Neither should you neither eat on all thirty days of the month nor fast for ten days at a stretch. Do not fast if you are a diabetic. If you are obese but otherwise healthy, undertake fasting four times a month. If you are healthy, but not obese, fast twice a month as per your constitution.
Seva has its own joy, its
own generosity (nobility), virtue and salutary
impact. Whether you are in the material world or in
the spiritual one, progress is impossible without seva.
In the material world, if you serve only
ostentatiously, your achievements will also be
apparent, not real. If you serve sincerely in the
spiritual world, your progress will be genuine.
Therefore, seva should be for the sake of seva, not
for pretentiousness, not for acclaim, but rather to
open the doors to the hidden treasure of bliss that
is ever present in your heart.
- Regular practice of meditation and Self-inquiry.
- Surrender to God: Totally surrender your I (ego) to the Lord, Who is the primeval source of the entire creation, He, who creates, sustains and destroys the universe.
5) What are the qualities of Satshisya(True disciple)?
Self-surrender unto God and a God -realized saint
The desire for emancipation (Liberation)
Elevating one's mind according to the dictates of scriptures and Self-realized souls
For more detailed answer, listen to the Audio satsang of Pujya Bapuji Satshisya ke liye, He Mere Sadhak located at audio
6) What is the ultimate goal of our life?
Ultimate goal for a Human Life is Self realization : It is to acquire true devotion, perfect happiness, supreme bliss and satisfaction in life time (while still living in this ever changing world full of troubles and mysteries) and freedom after death.
7) How should I control anger?
Anger is the most dangerous and detrimental to Sadhana. If a thief enters a house, some items (furniture etc.) still remain un-stolen. But if a house catches fire, everything is reduced to ashes. If the fire of anger overtakes our mind, our entire treasures of Japas, Tapas and virtues are destroyed. Therefore, beware of anger. It is all right to act out anger, but be alert not to allow it to possess you.
- Do not eat hurriedly. Take at least 25 minutes to eat and chew your food properly. If you find it difficult to ward off anger, press your tips of the fingers into your palms making a fist. Eat sattvic food. Stay away from garlic, red chilies, and fried foods.
- If you want to be happy and cheerful take a mixture of following contents every morning: 10 g Honey, 1 glass of water, 5 to 10 Indian Basil (Tulsi) leaves and Sant Kripa Churna (From Sant Shri Asaramji Ashram). If the churna or Tulsi are not available, honey alone will do.
- When you are angry, see yourself in the mirror.
- Chant " Hari Om Shanti" many times until your anger is warded off.
8) How should I control senses?
If the intellect gets purified through prayer and devotion to the Lord, discrimination will dawn; and then it will say," What in the end shall I gain by satisfying my palate or fulfilling other desires? ‟ It will not become a slave to the mind.
Ask yourself again and again " What in the end shall I gain from this? ‟ This will make your intellect strong and the resolves and counter-resolves of the mind will be reduced. Your mind and your intellect will then be at rest.
