Swamiji shared the thoughts of teaching of Sadgurudev Sri Swami Sivanandaji
Maharaj. He emphasized the need
of daily sadhana for spiritual seeker.
The life of a spiritual seeker is a constant struggle for developing
virtues and eradicating vices. Desires, lust, anger, greed, delusion (moha),
jealousy, etc. are some of the vices that one has to eradicate and develop
virtues like, compassion, love, truthfulness, ahimsa, equanimity, brahmacharya etc. One
has to wear the armour of wisdom while walking through the battlefield of life
and cut the enemy of ignorance with the sword of discrimination. Seek not
the name & fame in the world outside. Such temptations are to be checked and
transformed in to a force that reveals the inner SELF. One has to go beyond the three GUNAS to achieve “Self Realization”, which is the
ultimate Goal of Human
being is the one, who has attained complete mastery over the mind, developed all
the essential virtues, eradicated the vices and has realized his true identity (Atma-Jnana).
