Gadhada First Section
Vachanamrut 58
Shreeji Maharaj talks of the three attributes (Rajas, Tamas, Sattva) and how these attributes can be eliminated by associating with a Sant. There are cdertain Rajas and Tamas attributes, which cannot be eliminated since they arise due to previous evil deeds. Further Shreeji Maharaj clarifies that if Mota-purush gets pleased with someone then all his past deeds are destroyed irrespective of how wicked those deeds were. Shreejimaharaj states that by recognising a Mota-purush to be flawless, a person becomes free from all perversions and becomes His resolute disciple. Remaining subservient to the servants of Shreejimaharaj, and regarding oneself to be inferior to all other disciples, are the characteristics of a resolute disciple.
