Dialog with Loved Ones…
Dear Loved One,
The Sun God is in His fierce form, the entire country is burning with the acute heat and this earth is bearing this intense heat. It seems that the earth is performing severe austerity and the Sun God is taking Her test. The wish and desire of the earth in this austere ordeal will surely get fulfilled and it is certain that soon the pouring rain will cool this hot earth. Any kind of penance certainly bears fruit. The duration of the penance might be long, but ultimately, the God or Goddess, They do have to bless with their Divine elixir. The pure wishes of every person certainly gets fulfilled.
Recently, we got an opportunity to witness such a magnificent environment in Rajim in Chhattisgarh during the “Vijay Shree Baglamukhi Sadhana Camp”. The temperature rose to 45 Degrees due to intense heat from the Sun God, and yet all the Sadhaks were performing Baglamukhi Sadhana with full fervour. The entire camp campus got completely filled at Seven in the morning, the Sadhaks were quietly performing the Sadhana regardless of the acute heat throughout the day, and this happened on two consecutive days, when I see such positive environment, then the emotions of the Sadhaks touch each cell of my body, I feel very elated and enthusiastic that my Sadhaks have scaled a new peak in the spiritual Sadhana and penance. When more than ten thousand Sadhak disciples are present, and all of them are fully engaged in the meditation of SadGurudev forgetting everything else, then such a Sadhana camp becomes a celebration camp.
A week later, similar scene was repeated in Betul. People questioned – There is scorching heat, intense heat wave is on. How will we organize? The authorities declared – Take care, it is your responsibility if anyone falls ill. I replied that – Do not worry, Our camp is a celebration camp. All of our Sadhaks primarily make it their priority to take care of their peer Guru-disciples. Co-participation is the greatest strength of our this Nikhil family. “I should be able to do something for others”, this thought is fully imbibed within each disciple. Our every organization achieves a new summit of success, because our root feeling is to do something for others, for the society, for the religion, for the organization. All Sadhaks follow the principle that all the birds-animals, living-beings, humans live for the self; a real human being is the one, a real sadhak is the one, who lives for others as well as for self. One who does something for others in his life.
The basic foundation of our organization is based on the values of the benevolence, religion and charity. Where we undertake the process to modify the nature of our inner mind. Where we express compassion towards our own body, mind; and the same compassion is extended to the society. In this form, the money is also utilized for positive good tasks. Therefore, I term each of my disciple as a living conscious diamond-pearl.
The rainbow appears in the sky and stays there for a few moments, it has all kinds of colors and all are linked to each other. I am fascinated upon seeing these rainbow like disciples daily, that different types of people, who differ in age, place, birth and caste, all are bound together in the same pattern, and this pattern is our Nikhil pattern, which SadGurudev blessed us with, and all of you have collectively stitched it together into a garland, that this garland, this rainbow can never disintegrate. This entire fact is so unusual, so astounding. This speciality keeps me enchanted, I can detach myself from everything, but I cannot detach myself from looking at, listening to, touching and thinking about the disciple rainbow.
Captivated with this attachment, I implore you to come to Haridwar on Guru Poornima Mahotsava. You folks need to try a little bit, that little bit is more than enough. Rest SadGurudev will Himself dynamically guide you on this path.
Keep one fact in mind especially, when you come to Haridwar, when you celebrate Guru Poornima, then do bring your “mind” with yourself. As you explicate yourself to come to Gurudev, you should also control your “mind” with some anger, some love and some direction. Try to understand this more deeply, if you physically come, and your mind is engaged in thinking only about your business in your area, then you will be physically present in Haridwar but your mind will be elsewhere. Do not make your body, mind, intellect and knowledge run in four different directions. If you converge all of them together, then you will become a complete disciple of mine. I am inviting disciples with their full energy, intimacy, enthusiasm and dedication, I am not calling you only to listen to sermons or to perform Guru-worship.
The direct meaning of dedication is – you, your body, your mind, your intellect, your knowledge, all converge together in one pattern. This is also the basic formula to achieve success in life.
Yes, it is certain that – while living in the world, the resolutions should make sense, the platonic sense is not possible.

Do desire to live for a hundred years in this world, but you should wish to lead a life full of continuous steady actions. When we perform some actions, some faults also appear, but actions are the only way to resolve those defects. When there is an action, it will certainly provide a little indulgence, a little shade of attachment, will generate laziness, intimacy and antagonism as well; but after obtaining all of these, only the actions provide the means to rise higher than these planes, and continuous actions will surely enable you to achieve all your desires.
There is no distinction between Guru and disciple. Always remember a basic fact in this context – Guru is not different, He is not standing away from you, He is already set-up in your heart, the only requirement is to, bend down and see inside, with politeness, with grace, He is smilingly present on your heart plane, you need to invoke Him with love, with soothing voice, He is a part of your heart-beat, you only need to, comprehend Him fully, to sit with Him, to seat Him on the throne of your heart, to imbibe Him with all sweetness, to merge and assimilate Him with your pulse, your fibers and each cell of your body.
Whatever you do, do it for joy. I had decided in 1996 with SadGuru’s command to construct Arogya Dham in my life, and I am continuously moving on that path. This work is making excellent progress. The foundations are being filled and the first stage will be completed in the next three years.
And anyway, why do I need to be worried, when all of you are standing shoulder to shoulder with me. I do not worry about the future, I always progress on the path of action with complete consciousness and awareness. Come, let us all transform life together,
