Dada J.P. Vaswani Thoughts

Dada Jashan P. Vaswani is the spiritual head of Sadhu Vaswani Mission in PuneIndia

Never do anything which you would not wish to do during the last hour of your life.

O foolish one, do not thank God for loving you: He cannot do otherwise. Thank Him for having ignited in your heart love for Him. Let it grow, from more to more, until it burns away all self, only God remains.

The test of a man is how much he can bear and how much he can share and how soon he confesses a mistake and makes amends for it.

More important than the body is the soul. The body is perishable. The soul is forever. The body needs to be fed but it is more important to feed the soul. The food of the Soul is Love, Faith and Service to fellow beings.

If you are right, you don’t need to lose your temper. If you are wrong, you cannot afford to lose your temper.

Like a boat on water that does not sink…live in the world but do not sink in worldly matters.

Dada J P Vaswani Thoughts on Silence

Silence is our true Teacher. Silence is our real Guru! In silence are all our doubts cleared. And in silence is heard the Voice of God which speak the ancient word: - Uttishtha! Jagrata! O sleeper, Arise! Awake! How long will you in slumber lie?

To awake is to know that we are not creatures of the earth, earthy. We do not belong to this world. We must live in the world but not be of the world.

We must attend to our daily tasks but our mind should be fixed on the Lotusfeet of the Lord. We must practice the presence of God. And He is not afar. He is with us, within us.

To practice the presence of God elaborate rites and ceremonies are not needed. What is needed is love and childlike trust. Let us go to God as a child would go to its mother or father. Let us place all our problems and needs before Him. In Him is the solution to all our problems: and in Him is all that we need!

Dada J P Vaswani on Forgiving and Forgetting

It is always good to grow in the spirit of forgiveness. But we must also learn to forget, instead of going over many wrongs that may have happened to us in the past, let us forget them all and live in the present.

To be happy, we need to forget many things. We must learn the art of forgetting!

How many times should I forgive, I am tired of forgiving? – Forgive as many times as you would wish God to forgive you!

If you want the rainbow, you must accept the rain… if you want the rose, you must accept the thorns…

Dada J P Vaswani – Motivating Thoughts

I do not seek pleasure! Pleasure makes a man sick!
I do not seek possession: possessions possess the possessor!
I do not seek power: power makes a man corrupt!
I do but yearn for thee, O Lord!
So bless me that every day of my life may rise as an offering unto Thee!
Mayst Thou be my Unseen Companion in all my ways of living!
My body may be sick and my physical heart may not function properly, yet within my soul – the spiritual heart dwells, the spirit of God who always heals and blesses! Each day, this spirit is renewing my body, my mind, my heart. And I feel strong and radiant and serenely happy.
