Condensed from talks by Guruji Shree Rishi Prabhakar

 

In the last article, Pujya Guruji explained the fact that people are easily bored. Cooped up in cities they have lost the ability   to wonder. Caught up in doing useful things, where is the space to do useless things like: dance and sing and where is the space to be free of Karma? Ultimately, we are stuck being comfortable and earning. If one partner wants freedom, the other does not allow it. Can both come from freedom? Now  read on…

If she depends on you and you depend on her, it’s just bondage. After marriage you have to perform a lot of circus acts to     be free. Don’t get married to a girl who is not internally free: this is called Brahmacharya training.

 

Most of you did not go through brahmacharya and now your life is a great problem. Now it is not easy.

 

After one more generation, you will have very good marriages;  marriages with freedom.

Where do parental duties stop? As soon as a child is able to    stand, you protect him from the cold, with a sweater, but from there  you just go on and on.

 

Parental duties are over when you give him enough education  to survive. Then, no parents are required. Now this boy has to look  after himself.

 

In the present environment, you look after him till the 12th class after that let him do what he wants. For college, let him earn and  pay or give him a loan.

 

People spend lots of money  going to foreign lands. Your duty stops when he can sustain him-self.

 

Once he is 18, you can help    your neighbour’s child or any child who lacks opportunity. If they are eligible students, sup-port  them.

 

Why do you have to support   only your child? What is required? Lots of courage! So who should you support? Not only your   child, but your wife also depends on you? Do you want to make her free or comfortable?

Actually, you cannot make others free they need to realise  it for themselves.

 

With me, you will always be a little uncomfortable. Some SSY teachers want to give a lot of comfort to their participants. They say: give them comfort and gradually,  they will jump.

 

For those who join me, I don’t promise them anything and no guarantee. But I would like to  build their strength during this program. I take care of them so they don’t die but become strong  enough.

 

This is adventure, if, I find that  they are dying, then I support them.  Actually nobody dies.

 

If you want an exciting life,     it comes from freedom.

 

Repetition of yesterday is comfortable; the mind is a very comfortable machine. Comfort is just a programming. If you go on eating Punjabi food, you find com-fort in Punjabi food. If you    go on eating South Indian food, you are comfortable with that. So the mind looks for comfort.

 

People who speak your language are those with whom you begin  to be comfortable. Firstly, language and communication is very important, secondly religion and thirdly  food gives you comfort.

 

With similar thinking, you can   get along with people from other religions. You need to do a 40 days vat / fast to change this programming. If you are unable  to learn, then there is a problem. Free people have certain capabilities.

 

If you want tasty food, then learn to fast. If you are very hungry, any food tastes very good. If you are fasting any food  will taste nice.

 

So the first training is to fast, so you will not complain about  food! You did not get this training. How to get food? When you have nothing to do, what to do?

 

The best thing is: Do nothing. If there is nothing to do, do  nothing. That is the best.
