Today is a great day as we are celebrating Param Pujya Pappapji's birhday in the presence of Pujya Jyotiben. Both Param Pujya Pappaji and Param Pujya Kakaji made a sankalp to bring heaven on earth and they initiated the path for the spiritual emancipation of women. Up until this time, the Hindu religion did not regard women to be capable of achieving such spiritual liberation. However, Lord Swaminarayan during his time felt that women would achieve such a status and he identified this in Vach. G.L. 26. Kakaji and Pappaji with Yogibapa's grace opened up this path for women to become Brahmroop of the highest level.
Yogibapa gave 5 secrets:
1. Not to be negative about anyone
2. Think about our own spiritual salvation
3. Do chanting of the swaminaryan mantra when in trouble or confused
4. Keep harmony, unity and heartfelt oneness with all
5. Sing the glory of manifest Gunatit Saint.
But now the question is, If we have the intellect how do we not see or judge anyone? If a dog is around and we tell the dog that you are stupid etc etc the dog just wags the tail. Because the animal does not have the proper intellect. So how should we discriminate with our sense, that is a big question? What we can do is if we see something we should not tell anyone. If we hear something we do not tell others. This will discipline our senses. If we do this we have mastered suharadbhaav. If someone rebukes us we must not go and talk to others about it, but in fact we should only think that I am so lucky that I have someone who can tell me. If we live according to these principles of the satsang, will will develop the virtues of suharadabhaav.
At one time Gunatitaanand Swami sent someone to wake up Bhagatji maharaj. When the devotee went and tried to wake him up saying Bhagatji? Bhagatji? But he did not wake up. The devotee went back to swami and said he is not waking up. Swami asked how did you try to wake him. The devotee said, by name bhagatji! Swami send him back to wake Bhagatji with the name Gunatitaanand swami. The devotee then went and did as requested and said Gunatitaanand Swami wake up! Bhagatji maharaj immediately woke up.
So for us we must change our name to Kakaji, Pappaji, Saheb and such Gunatit saints; we must identify ourselves with our guru so that we are an extension of them. Bhagatji maharaj was so in tune with his guru that he acquired his qualities and became the humblest of the humble.
This is our goal for suharaddham. If we make a mistake or someone else makes a mistake we must not loose our happiness. Otherwise our crude nature will ride on us. We have to live with heartfelt oneness. Param Pujya Pappaji has given us a big Samaj of 400 to 500 divine sisters. At the age of 74 years he came to the US for Amy and VimalKumars wedding to fulfill Kakaji's mission. If we pick up one principle from Pappaji and live by it we will become brahmswaroop. Jyotiben is Kakaji and Pappajiroop. When she fell down she never complained. If it was someone else in her place they would want to go back to India.
