1. Rev. Master’s visit to Singapore

June 17 – 22, 2011

Rev. Master visited Singapore between the 17th and 22nd of July, 2011. During his visit, he spent a lot of time with local abhyasis and conducted two satsanghs everyday. Some excerpts from his informal conversations with abhyasis are as follows -
1. Too much prosperity kills the soul. Excess money is a danger.
2. Babuji Maharaj was once asked if he was against prosperity. He answered that making money is a question of using one's talents. It must flow like a river from which one takes what is needed.
3. Babuji Maharaj has said that a man is rich if he has what he needs. What you don't need is not yours because you never use it. He also said that to earn for your needs requires very little effort. The essence of Sahaj Marg is all about balance- adding quality and values to life. Not possessing material things, but becoming. Balance is what denotes perfection.
4. Love must be in the heart. It does not matter where else it is or it is not. Discipline comes from this love.
5. One must not pray for spiritual liberation or for material things, but for a condition.
6. Babuji Maharaj has said that the best way to see the Master is to see him as your mother since it is a bond that cannot be cut.
7. Test your Master as much as you like. Having tested him, tie yourself to him with bonds of steel.
8. Babuji Maharaj has said that a wealthy man is one who has what he needs. A man whose needs have been fulfilled is a happy man. Happiness is actually a state of painlessness or sorrowlessness. Therefore, a happy life is one without pain.
9. Spirituality says, "Live in the present, for the present, there is no future but the present. Future is the present extended into infinity."
10. Pray for wisdom from the heart, not knowledge. The heart is the giver of wisdom because love is wise. The door to heaven opens through the heart and that is where we have to go.
11. Don't judge anybody by external factors. Always aim at the heart.

Master expressed his interest in learning Chinese. In this context, he said that learning is always a beginning and if the beginning is not right, you never learn anything. It is for this reason that a 'Vidhya Aarambham' (literally meaning 'Beginning of Knowledge') is done for children in India as an initiation process. So it must be done at the right time, in the right place and under the appropriate circumstances.
