The Only Question
A journalist who had read the Vedas and other holy books got into a discussion of the Sant Mat teachings with a satsangi friend of his in Amritsar. Impressed by the teachings, the journalist decided to visit Beas to see Maharaj Sawan Singh Ji. He wrote down fifty or sixty questions he planned to ask the Master, for questioning and arguing were central to his work.
The first satsang answered most of his questions; nevertheless, he wrote down a few more. The second satsang answered all the rest. Not ready to give up, the journalist wrote a few more and asked for an interview with the Master. After putting him at ease with some personal queries, Maharaj Sawan Singh Ji said, “Is there anything you would like to ask?”
The journalist replied, “Well, I did have a few questions.…” Maharaj Sawan Singh Ji told him that he was welcome to ask any questions he wanted to. But the satsangs had satisfied his queries; he had forgotten the new questions and was in no mood to ask anything. Observing his silence, Maharaj Sawan Singh Ji said, “Son, do not hesitate, take out the piece of paper from your pocket, and ask whatever questions you have.” Overwhelmed, he tearfully requested initiation.
Heaven on Earth
I could only wish that you would go in after getting concentration, and when the Master will begin to talk to you and reply to all your questions inside, all miseries will be over.
