IMPORTANCE OF SATSANG: The Master saw a lady devotee sitting in the
office. He had seen her two or three days back at the Satsang and, not
having seen her since, was under the impression that she had returned
"You are still here?" he enquired of her.
"Yes," she replied.
"But you did not attend Satsang yesterday," observed the Master.
"I was not well," she replied.
"Then the remedy was to attend Satsang," remarked the Master.
"One of the central questions in your spiritual diary should be, 'what am
I in the eyes of God?' But this question is never put and you do not want
to know the answer. You always wish to know, 'What am I in the eyes of
people, in the eyes of my neighbours, in the eyes of the public? What does
the country think about me? What do the vote givers think about me? What
is the international opinion about me?' Never for a moment you think,
'what does God think about me?'. Let this be your contemplation." - Swami
