Shri Abjibapashri Ni Vato - Sermons of Shree Abjibapashri
Preachings of Shriji Maharaj are so simple, easy and unambiguous that a spiritual seeker having pure character can easily understand the knowledge and greatness of Shriji Maharaj, and establish oneness with Shriji Maharaj. Vachanamṛts which are discoursed by Lord Shri Sahajanand Swami alias Shri Swaminarayaṇa are our holiest and best Shrutis.
Whereas discourses delivered by swahsiddha Anadi Mukta like Bapashri are our holiest and best Smrutis. The contents of the Vachanamṛt are axiomatic; whereas the sermons delivered by Bapashri have to be supported by the Vachanamṛt. Bapshri says, “My sermons are in the place of a grain, whereas Vachanamṛt is in the place of meal.”
In Kutch, elderly people are addressed as ‘bapa’ (i.e. father). As Abjibhai had infinite paternal affection for one and all, everybody started addressing him as ‘Abjibapashri’ or simply ‘Bapashri’.
“Therefore go on looking at Murti. Then only Maharaj will know that this poor fellow is persuading, so Maharaj will give (luminous) darsan soon. Go on looking at God’s Murti itself- go on looking till tears roll down your cheecks. Thus one should keep on looking with insight sincerely.” While meditating if every organ is seen, we should know that it is being looked with the tendency of eyes and when the whole Murti is seen we should know that it is being looked with the tendency of jiva and when one achieves oneness with Murti, there is no tendency: know that it is being looked by the power of jiva.
