Heart to Heart
Whenever I had asked the Indian satsangi students how they liked American food, they would remark it was very monotonous and dull, as we mostly use only salt and butter to flavour our food. But Maharaj Ji, when asked how he liked American food, lovingly and graciously answered: “It likes me.”
Legacy of Love
When Maharaj Sawan Singh became the Master, his entire life was dedicated to spirituality and seva of the sangat. His own comfort, well-being, convenience, and even health became secondary for him. Endowed with an extraordinary willpower, Hazur had a great capacity for hard work. He would endure any amount of physical discomfort and hardship while carrying out his duties. He would completely disregard extremes of weather – heat, cold, heavy rains; nothing could deter him from his mission of satsang, initiation and seva. He would stand in the summer sun – sometimes it is 120 degrees Fahrenheit in June – without an umbrella, for hours at a time, supervising the harvesting. Once when I put an umbrella over his head, he said, “No, son, I do not need it. Don’t you see the sangat is doing seva in the sun?” With Hazur looking on, seva that would normally take two days to finish was done in half a day.
