MASTER AND HIS WORK
MASTER is like a wish-yielding tree.
He always grants the wishes, whatever they are, of the seekers. The rich
and the poor, the high and the low: everyone comes to him for something.
His greatest pleasure, however, lies in liberating spirits from the clutches
of body and mind. Irrespective of his denominational character, he attends
to the spiritual needs of all.
He neither creates new "isms" nor does he denounce the "isms" in existence. He comes not to break the law, but to fulfill the law. All "isms" (spiritual), in fact, receive strength and solidarity from him.
In his inimitable loving way, he takes everyone from the line of least resistance. He does not interfere with the creeds and beliefs of a person, whatever these are, nor does he meddle with the social order of things. He simply talks of the spirit, its intrinsic nature, its seat in the body, its various operative processes, its latent capabilities, and how it can be developed in its relation with body, mind, and with God, and how it can be liberated, made self-poised and turned Godward.
His appeal is directly to spirit, and his words sink deep into the very depths of the soul. He deals with ready cash at the counter and does not make people live in hope till the end of their lives or thereafter. He teaches:
Believe not the words of a Master Soul unless you see the things he
tells about with your own eyes.
It is just for the sake of experiment
that we have in the first instance to accept the words of a Master. But
when we find the truth of what he says, by actual experimentation, then
the hypothesis is turned into conviction.
When a person once sees the light of the sun, he cannot deny the existence of the sun even though the bats of the world may unite in denying the solar phenomenon.
Unless the inner vision is approached, the Truth of the Reality does not dawn, and the jivas or embodied spirits remain groping in utter darkness and ignorance of the highest and the greatest magnitude.
Whenever a Master of Truth comes into the world, the spiritually hungry and thirsty gather around him and quench their hunger and thirst by the manna and the Elixir of Life that he freely gives to the aspirants.
Gradually their love develops into a steady devotion that befits them more and more for the saving grace of the Master, and helps a jiva to travel quickly home.
