Sahaj Sandesh No: 2008.16 - Friday, June 06, 2008

Dear Sister / Brother: 

 During Rev. Master’s European tour it has been apparent that some of the abhyasis who were previously serving as preceptors are not attending the gatherings.  Rev. Master has been enquiring about them, and, in almost all cases, it has been insinuated by others that these abhyasis had left the Sahaj Marg practice once their services as preceptors was discontinued.  It would therefore appear to be dangerous to accept the responsibility of a preceptor, because if it is going to lead to a situation where a preceptor is going to give up the practice itself, is it not better that he or she should refuse to work as preceptor, and prefer to remain as an abhyasi who has every possibility of reaching the goal? This also applies to functionaries in the Mission, where there have been many in the past that are no longer in the present, which should serve as warning to those who are in the present to stay on in the future. As Jesus Christ said, “What shall it profit a man if he shall gain the whole world but lose his soul?
