…Continued from the book GYAN KI GEHRAI (THE DEPTH OF WISDOM)
Devotee: Ma, who is a sadhak?
Maiyaji : One who is an austere. One who achieves the Ultimate goal of life.
Devotee: What is the Ultimate goal?
Maiyaji : Refraining from worldly pleasures, devotion for God and freeing oneself from the cycle of birth & death.
Devotee: Ma, What is the strength of a Sadhak?
Maiyaji: Prayer is the strength of a sadhak. Just like a mother fulfills the desires of her crying child, similarly, that Supreme Lord listens to the prayers of a bhakta(devotee) filled with Aart Bhaava(intense urge) . When you remove the words from a prayer, only emotions are left, that is most dear to God.
Devotee: Maiya ji , What are the barriers in Sadhna(spiritual practices)?
Maiyaji: The sadhak should not depend upon his future or destiny for sadhna nor should he get disappointed but must keep doing his/her efforts.
