This letter of revered Gurudev Swami Hariharananda Gurujee Maharaj was addressed to disciples of Bhawani Patna, Kalahandi, Orissa, India. It is circulated among all Kriyabans with the permission of revered Gurudev.
My affectionate and Divine Soul,
I remember you often. You have opened a meditation center in Bhawani Patna. Whether you have opened an account or not? In whose name and in which bank the account is opened? What is the account number? All these details you please send to me by registered post.
I will remain here 'til 30th of June. 1 am not telling you to come. Guru is all-pervading. Guru is abiding in every body part of the disciple. Gu means the soul or the invisible body. Ru means the gross visible body. The invisible body, that is soul, is pervading the whole gross visible body.
I am better than before. But I want seclusion. I want silence and solitude. Your faith and devotion is great, you only regulate and manage the organization in that place nicely. Party politics should not enter organization. Remembering and perceiving the Guru all will do their duties with a sense of self-surrender. If anybody has no loyalty for Guru then he cannot improve and cannot be realized. It is mentioned in the scriptures yastu seveta panditam. There is panda brahama gyan in the Guru. The disciple should not keep any complex or self-interest and will work according to the rules of the organization, selflessly maintaining loyalty to the Guru. Then his work will be transformed into worship. I have many disciples there and every one of them has some special quality. If they can do the work for the organization and the Guru selflessly and dedicate their special quality to the Guru's mission, then they can realize the soul day and night. It is the soul, through our inhalation and exhalation, doing all the work. This can be realized effectively.
United we stand, divided we fall. As all together offer flowers with both hands to the Guru, similarly all the board members, even every Kriyaban, will exert together and spread the message of Kriya Yoga among all the persons, then a current of new spiritual life will flow in the universe. I want to emphasize that I am connected with many organizations. I am sorry to tell that there is no amity among them. For this reason there is no rapid spiritual upliftment.
You will mix with all and talk nicely and maintain harmony. Read this letter loudly, so all can hear and will work accordingly. I have created many organizations. There are many meditation centers. In all places I give this advice.
In my life, I have realized that in spite of spiritual practice most people keep and maintain their selfishness. I am always awake to the fact that such selfishness should not remain in the organization.
After the tenure of my life span in this world, who will continue my spiritual mission, I have made that arrangement. So, disciples in all places should be busy with spiritual practice and should make progress. In all his body parts he will always perceive gu and ru. Atma bed guru rekam. The indwelling soul in the body is gu and the body is ru. Perceiving this soul, guru, every person will destroy their sins and defects.
They should give up arrogance, vanity, selfishness, impurities of the mind and greed, and should cultivate sense-control and self-control, power to practice spirituality, should always rest in soul, and should calmly go on doing their duties for the benefit of the universe. They will get friendship, equality, mercy, forgiveness, kindness, love, humility and service. If they will do their works in this manner, then that work will be brahma karma. In the scriptures it is written karma brahmod bhabam biddhi, which means that every work comes from God and Soul.
Lord Chaitanya won many countries by the power of love. Mahatma Gandhi achieved freedom for India by the power of love. But in every person there are two opposing forces. In Bhagavad-Gita 15th. chapter, it is written that in every person there is one down-pulling force and there is one uplifting force. But most people influenced by nature follow the down-pulling force. If they will practice the authentic, original Kriya Yoga sincerely this down-pulling force will disappear. From ignorance one will get knowledge. From untruth one will get truth. In multiplicity, one will perceive unity of the soul. All impurities and sins and all negative powers which obstruct spiritual progress will go away. By this, one can always perceive the living God within and his human life will be blessed.
Sarira khyana bidhwansi kalpanta sthaino gunah. The human body may get destroyed at any time, but if the person will remain in his soul he can realize the living God within himself and the whole world will worship him.
If God is present in living form in every person and keeping him alive by taking inhalation and exhalation, then why should not we perceive Him day and night? Who does everything and gets things done and will not become ever-realized?
This letter of Hariharananda must not be destroyed. Get it xeroxed. Preserve it. Every week before meditation read this letter loudly. One person will read and all will listen. Please send the copies of this letter to Rourkela, Sambalpur, Puri, Calcutta and all other meditation centers.
You please all enjoy my love, best wishes and enjoy blessing of God and Gurus.
