If We Have Some Problems, The Direction Is Given Inside By The Masters

ONCE UPON A TIME, there was a devotee of Sawan Singh Ji Maharaj called Ghala Singh. He was going to a place called Nanded. In those days, they had to walk. So, it was a long distance he was walking. And while he was doing that journey, he had an old person who was walking along with him. They had to pass a forest and it was late evening. It was dark and there were animals also in the forest.

As it became very dark and they were walking there, that old man got scared and started crying, feeling some animal would eat them. But Ghala Singh was not scared. He was an initiate of Sawan Singh Ji Maharaj and he said, “Don't worry, nothing will happen.” And he sat down for meditation.

It was actually quite pitch dark and they were not able to really see. And, in those days, things were quite different. So, he sat for meditation. Sawan Singh Ji Maharaj gave him Darshan and showed him the direction. He said, “Go towards the south and you will find your way.” So, in the Darshan, Sawan Singh Ji Maharaj said, “You go southwards, and about a kilometer and a half you will find a village. You stay the night in the village and then you continue your journey.”

Accordingly, they started on that path. They found the path as they moved southwards. And then, following that path, about a kilometer and a half down, they found the village also. And they stayed the night in the village, and the next morning they left for Nanded.

So, that way, when we do regularly our meditation, and if we have some problem sometimes and we face some difficulties then, when we sit for meditation, direction is given inside by the Masters.

Therefore, you should have love and affection for the Master. And you should do your meditation and Simran daily and contemplate on the Form of the Master. This life has been given by God Almighty for devotion and for salvation in this lifetime. So, we should follow the instructions of the Master and do our devotion with love and affection.

Morning time is a good time. It is quiet. And the mind is also quiet. So, it's a good time. A quiet mind can meditate well. As the day progresses, the mind becomes more active. And so, therefore, we should make the most of this time and do our meditation and Simran. We should close our eyes and sit for meditation.
