Much better than the enjoyment of material pleasures is the bliss of atma & even better is the bliss of GOD, which is like Chintamani🥰 #baps #bapsshriswaminarayanmandir #swamis_lioness #drawwritesoul #nilkanthvarni #bapsatlanta #bapsphotos #bapsmedia #bapsvideos #satsang #dradhta #vachnamrut #swaminivato #sant #akshardham #bhagvan #bliss #ashirvad #😌@mission_rajipo❤️

Three Types of Awareness for Personal Happiness
Thereupon Muktãnand Swãmi asked, “Mahãrãj, life is full of difficulties. Amidst all these difficulties, what understanding should a devotee of God cultivate in order to remain happy at heart?”
Shriji Mahãrãj began, “To answer that, I shall tell you about My own experience.” He then explained, “By keeping the following three forms of awareness, I am not hindered by any disturbances: constant awareness of the ãtmã, which is distinct from the body; the awareness of the perishable nature of all worldly objects; and the awareness of God’s greatness. By keeping these three forms of awareness, no difficulties hinder Me in any way.”
19.09.2019 – Johannesburg
Today, HH Swamishri was getting ready to leave Johannesburg to go to Nairobi. When the sevak santo went to the bedroom this morning, they saw that Swamishri had awoke early and he had made the bed himself. Santo told Swamishri that they would have done this, so there was no need for him to do it himself.
Swamishri gave an amazing response saying, “When we came, everything was clean. Now that we are leaving, we should make sure everything is clean. Whilst I am able to physically do it, please let me. Our own work should be done my ourselves, not left to others. By doing this, Yogi Bapa and Pramukh Swami become happy.”
Then Swamishri said, “We are leaving today, right?”
Santo agreed, and thus Swamishri lightened the mood whilst also teaching us the importance and greatness of seva.

“It is that very God who is the sole controller of this body. If He wishes, He may oblige the body with an honourable ride on an elephant; or if He wishes, He may have it thrown in prison; or if He so wishes, He may even place some serious illness in the body. Despite this, one should never pray before God in the following manner: ‘Mahãrãj! Please relieve me of my misery.’ Why? Because we want this body to behave in accordance with the wishes of God; after all, God’s wish is our wish. We do not want our preferences to differ from the preferences of God even in the slightest way. Moreover, since we have offered our body, mind and wealth to God, then now, only the will of God is our prãrabdha; besides that, there is no other prãrabdha for us. Therefore, regardless of whatever pain or pleasure we may encounte by the wish of God, we should not become disturbed in any way; we should be pleased with whatever pleases God.”

Faith in God
In the assembly, Shriji Mahãrãj sat contemplating for quite some time. He then opened His eyes and, looking compassionately at the assembly of devotees, said, “Today I wish to talk to all of you about faith in God, so please listen carefully. Shri Purushottam Bhagwãn, whose form is forever divine, is seated in Akshardhãm, which is as luminous as countless millions of suns, moons, and flames of fire. That same God assumes the avatãrs of Rãm, Krishna, etc., upon this earth for the sake of granting liberation to the jivas. Then, the jiva that develops firm faith in that God by profoundly associating with the Sant progresses spiritually day by day…”

Personally, I believe but for Swami's association ,what to talk about crossing over the cycle of birth & death which would have remained a far cry, even our misery and pain of this world would have bogged us down. When we see around us how people are driven into depression and suicidal tendencies by indulging in worldly pleasures, we realize our good fortune that Swami has shown us his immense mercy by extending his shelter to all of us.
Swamishree has sanctified our lives, placing us in his heart and guiding us to the path of abundant joy, giving permanent contentment. Swami’s concern has no bounds when he says do not leave satsang, doing so will invite misery. In a world where people would set off relations on one mistake, swami fears the fear of loosing us. He is forever ours, constantly looking upon and protecting of us. We have happened to come in the company of a preeminent guru.
In Gadhada Pratham 68 Maharaj has said:“God Forever Resides in the Eight Types of Murtis and in the Sant. He gives bliss by coming in our dreams, hearing our cries and aiding them. Have you ever heard of a friendship between an ant and an elephant!? Yet he gave us immense joy by becoming one among us. A million thank you falls short in front of it. Thank you for everything.
