“The paths leading man to god or Truth are said to be many. I will speak only of the shortest. It is to recognize God as the Self in you and then to find Him out. What is the distance then between you and God, between you and yourself? Ah, there is no distance at all, a full Zero! Yet, how dare you say to find God and Truth is hard?’’

Q:

Is it novel or right if one gets into spirituality just because he is vexed with the way life is going on. Even though it may be good, does it have acceptance?

Poojya Swamiji Replies:

Spirituality is a response to the quest of intelligence. It is a prerogative of Intelligence. It seeks to uncover the Supreme Reality. The resulting revelation has all the blessings and fulfilment to bestow.

 

Spirituality is equally a redress of all distresses of the mind. It gives lightness, peace, contentment and fullness. Who will not need and cherish these?

 

If your vexation has other reliefs, strive to have them. Or else, seek spirituality. In so doing, there is nothing wrong. Instead it is all right, proper and harmonious.
