On the eve of the 67th Birthday Anniversary of His holiness Madhu Param Hans ji Maharaj, the head of the Sahib Bandgi Panth, lacks of devotees from every corner of the country assembled at Akhnoor Ashram to pay salutations to their Satguru. On this occasion, a grand Bhandara was organised which lasts for 3 days 17th to 19th April.
While delivering his sermons on 18th April, Madhu Param Hans Ji Maharaj said that supreme power resides within us. But still it is strange to find that we have not been in a position to understand His existence. It means there are certain forces that are present within our body & are preventing us from having any realisation of Him. These forces are preventing us from having any realisation of our soul even.It is the feeling of our identity that prevents us from realising our soul. This ‘I’ is not only the word ‘I’. It stands for the identity that we are aware of. It is this ‘I’ that stands as an obstacle between us & God & doesn’t let us realise Him. It is this that feels comfort & sorrow, feels itself as the owner of material things & turns some as our friends or others as our enemies. All this is the play of mind.
It is only your mind that is your enemy. There is need to see whether it is all due to the mind alone or the soul also has some role in it. There is no doubt that our soul is also involved in it. Our soul has taken itself as a body. What task has this body been performing? It has many vices like anger, lust, greed, attachment & ego etc. In the state of anger it picks up quarrels with others; in the state of greed it cheats others; in the state of lust it indulges in lustful activities; in the state of attachment it utters the words—my son, my wife; & in the state of ego it makes others enemies & the like. The entire world seems to be entangled in this unreal mayaic net.
