Gadhada First Section
Vachanamrut 72
Muktanand Swami requests Shreeji Maharaj to continue deliver knowledge related to yesterdays subject. Shreejimaharaj starts by stating that a true disciple prospers only when they are not conflicted with determination in God with unfavourable time and previous evil deeds. Furthermore, harassing the meek, falsely accusing or causing women to break religious vows will endure sin equivalent to killing a Brahmin. A true disciple will not find flaws in God and will perceive God as divine and that the purpose of God's human form is to bestow salvation. Lastly, Kakabhai asks for the characteristics of the 3 types of disciples. Shreejimaharaj explains that the best disciples recognizes their soul (indivisible, indestructible) to be separate from their body (inanimate, painful, impure). Moderate disciple is not able to see the pure soul in everyone else, and may envy other disciples. Lowest disciple has determination about God but does not understand soul.
