DISCOURSES : October 5, 1939

October 5, 1939

The darkness of the night set in. Sri Sri thakur was seated on a chowki in the Ashram courtyard by the river bank, and some people of the ashram were with Him. Gopalda came. Thakur said to him, “The Manu-Samhita starts with a description of the beginning of the cosmic cycle, and there is some real sense in that. By understanding things in the order in which they appear one can get a proper understanding of them. Chalar Sathi (Life’s Companion) starts with the creation of the universe. I did not make any great plans for it that way; it turned out that way of itself. Unless we are acquainted with the elementals, our knowledge is only of bits and pieces, and we don’t come to a full understanding. What big scientists our ancient seers were none today understands. A great ascetic like Mahadev, for example, was responsible for a great many medical formulas. People today generally have a distorted picture of saints. But the real saints were very active and practical. In how many ways they served the society!”

In the course of His talking, Thakur said, “I do not see another normal man around like Ramakrishna.” Later in the night prayer and meditation were discussed. Thakur said, “These things don’t fit in well unless one has a normal life. A posed or `got-up’ life will never do, I have never obtained anything by going through gymnastics for it. I would do things when I felt like it. I never saw Sarkar Saheb. That is why my mother was everything to me. Whatever I would do would be to gain credit with her. If fancy so pleased me I would begin repeating Name in the dead of night. I always had a strong urge to do things swiftly Once I walked three miles from Khoksa in 22 minutes. My activity became intense, and I enjoyed my work all the more. I would do Kirtan. I n the period of trance consciousness would be lost. But I do not attach any importance to that. At other times I was always conscious. When I grasped a thermometer one day, the temperature went up to 110 degrees. Water sprinkled on my body would evaporate. Such things happened. Visions like those I discussed with you before would come.

"People do not understand the meaning of God. They go on with queer  
ideas in their heads and do all sorts of peculiar things. That's why  they 
don't get anywhere. Those who get the association of the great  really get
fulfillment. What cannot be understood by ascetic practices  can be 
understood by them, seen by them, normally. And this again cannot  
happen unless one leads a normal life.

  1. I?m impressed, I have to say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that?s both educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you may have hit the nail on the head. Your thought is outstanding; the issue is one thing that not enough people are talking intelligently about. I am very comfortable that I stumbled throughout this in my search for one thing referring to this.
