Sri Swamiji’s Answers to Questions Asked by Devotees

Question:
Why does it feel like some mahatmas can appear to have desire and anger?

Answer:
He who has desires, wealth and fame cannot experience Bhagavan’s darshan. When we realize that one is a mahatma, if it appears that they have these, it is merely a drama or a leela that is done for a reason..

Question:
Why do you often say that one should only have one Guru?

Answer:
Some people, either due to some problems or due to the fact that it is auspicious to have darshan of various sadhus, get darshan of several sadhus. It is not wrong up to a point. But those who wish to grow spiritually, should get upadesa from one Guru and surrender to Him completely.
