…Continued from the book GYAN KI GEHRAI (THE DEPTH OF WISDOM)
Devotee : Ma, What is the main goal of human life?
Ma: the ultimate goal of human life is Realisation of Self. May one take one birth or thousands, but one has to achieve this goal.
Devotee: Ma what should we do to achieve this goal?
Ma: Do sadhna(spiritual practices), seek company of Saints and follow their preachings.
Devotee: Ma, what is sadhna?
Ma: By doing which, the thoughts, mind & heart uplifts, becomes peaceful, enhances devotion towards God, is called sadhna. There is a story in Vedanta ,that ,just like a bird who is surrounded by sea from all sides, when gets tired by flying non stop, it takes shelter on the same boat from which it took its flight, same way, our senses, in disguise of that bird ,when get tired by roaming here and there the entire time, come and take its shelter in its soul. After working for whole day, when you get tired, go within your Self and get One with Him(the Supreme Lord). Like , the bird after taking rest on the boat, again starts flying, same way, our senses after taking some rest again roam here and there.
BRINGING BACK OUR ROAMING VRATTI(SENSES) TO THAT ONE SUPREME BEING IS CALLED “SADHNA”.
