“If I can guide some soul erring to Truth, inspire with his heart a sense of duty. If I can plant within the soul of a rosy plant a sense of light, a love of truth and beauty. If I can teach one man that god and Heaven are nearer I shall, have not lived in vain while here”.
I don’t know who said it but it’s beautiful because I have seen this philosophy reflect in a great friend & nobel soul who is here amongst us., Sisters, brothers and wellwishers he is none other than our venerable Guruji “Acharya Sri Ajit”.
As emphasized in the Holy Scriptures the Universe is filled with Divinity and Knowledge. Though nobody can own it everybody can experience and reap its benefits with the guidance of an enlightened “Life Teacher”, who will act as a bridge between truth and its discovery. Hence all of us need a “Guru ” who can guide us in the right path.
Sri Acharya Ajit, a spiritual social economic reformer has come in communion with his respected Gurudev Sri Gopalachary who guided and enlightened him with the spiritual knowledge and enable him to understand discrimination between right and wrong, false and truth, ignorance and knowledge. Eventually leading him to discover the ephemeral, transient and impermanent nature of human life.
We are very fortunate to have him as our “Life Teacher”, according to Acharya, human life starting with the concept of “I “gets involved in the attachments of family, society, etc. Once the “I” is cleansed of its hallucination and the resultant impurities, the family and the society gets purified. Finally its leads to the universal welfare, wherein the one-undivided whole with its inherent illumination fills the entire universe with the same “I” leading the Soul ultimately to merge with universal soul.
He look upon himself the onus of bringing a quantum change in the psyche of Indians and the mankind. Since the basis of this change is truth “spiritual retreats” is the vehicle that aims at bringing this change in the social, economic and spiritual content of Indians.
