Ambalalbhai had written to Krupaludev about his discomfort and anguish at not being able to meet (samagam) Krupaludev. Krupaludev examines various possibilities as to where and how they could meet at the same time emphasising the importance of ‘sant samagam’ and the true faith. He also considers samagam with Saubhagbhai but that was also ruled out. Krupaludev also probes Ambalalbhai to test how deep was his desire for the samagam.
In the second letter explained by Bhaishree, Krupaludev states that in these dark times a person is not able to focus his mental inclinations to where he should. Bhaishree discusses this statement and there is more.
This issue has many interesting short articles, poems and articles in English by Br Minalben. Sujit Nagda has translated letter 194.
The cover article is Param Pujya Bhaishree’s explanation of Letters 262 and 263 from the Vachanamrut. Param Krupaludev has expressed his thoughts on the significance of ‘Satsang’ or in other words the noble company of life-minded seekers. In Letter 263 Krupaludev speaks about the importance of a Gnani or in other words an Enlightened seer for a seeker to progress on the path. He goes on to say that the enlightened seer is indeed an embodiment of the truth and hence one must be far more desirous of developing loving devotion towards them rather than hanker after esoteric knowledge from them.
Br. Rasikbhai’s article has shared thirty powerful contemplations of ‘Subhashito’ from the ancient Jain scriptures. Each of them, presented in the original Prakrit as also with their Gujarati translations, are capable of shaking up the reader and inducing profound thoughts.
Br. Minalben has shared two sweet poems that she had composed for Param Pujya Bapuji’s birthday and Param Pujya Gurumaa’s Samadhi day. The poems are deeply devotional and beautifully weave the key points of the Ekant Maun Aradhana shibir on ‘Atmagnan na sadhano’ into a melody of words. Her poems have also been translated into English. Br. Vikrambhai has penned down a powerful article titled ‘Get up and gear up from within to embark on the journey to liberation’, wherein he explains the importance of willingness, scheduling time and discipline that are required for achieving our goal.
Bhaishree’s swadhyay from letter 187 discusses the very rapid progress in Param Krupaludev’s ‘gnan dasha’. Both Br. Minalben and Br. Vikrambhai have enriched the English section of the magazine with their contributions. Sujit’s translation of Letter 200 talks about Param Krupaludev Shrimad Rajchandra’s advice to Pujya Saubhagbhai’s sons , this advice is relevant to us all.
