Description
Preface

The teachings of the saints are not mere strings of words or a neat array of precepts; each utterance by them is charged with Grace and Power. The words of the Masters help the seekers in character building which is the underlying theme of the spiritual practices, viz, Sadhana. Verily, their Words of Grace generate a subtle process of inner purification in the deep lakes of our minds. However to realise the therapeutic effect at a conscious level and to draw maximum mileage out of their teachings, one has to adopts a discipline of frequent contemplation letting the mind reflect on the messages again and again, like turning over the beads of the rosary as an aid for constant remembrance. Such an exercise would, in due course, chip away the age-old conditioning of the mind and open up new dimensions, cutting a new path in our inner journey. The teachings of the Realised Beings come as a benediction to the mind, which is grouping and stumbling in the dark corridors of delusion.

This revised and enlarged edition of "Points to Ponder" is divided into two parts. In part 1 ‘ Light of Supreme Reveals Itself in a Life of Perfection’, we have presented a compilation of talks given by Pujya Swami Satchidanandaji from 1990 to 1999 on occasions like Jayanti, Mahasamadhi daya etc. of his Masters - Swami Ramdas and Mother Krishnabai, endearingly called as Beloved Papa and Pujya Mataji by their devotees. The expression ‘Beloved Papa’ also stands for the Lord of the Universe seated in everybody’s heart. Pujya Swamiji who had the rare privilege of moving closely with two great saints, serving Beloved Papa for 14 years and Pujya Mataji for 40 years, gives us inspiring accounts of the fascinating life of perfection lived by his Divine Gurus, radiating their luster of love and service towards one and all. Listening to the lives of saints and sages is, indeed like inhaling the fresh fragrance of scented blossoms wafting in the pleasant, cool breeze in springtime. Pujya Swamiji uses such occasions to draw our attention to the timeless message of Universal Love and Service proclaimed by his Masters and also to highlight and reiterate pertinent aspects of Sadhana to straighten our floundering efforts and uplift our sagging spirits. The caption of each talk conveys the central theme covered therein, to enable aspirants focus on the message which may be appropriate at that juncture in their Sadhana. This section also includes talks given on other occasions.

The second part titled ‘ Guiding Rays from the Anchorage’ contains excerpts from Pujya Swamiji’s letters to the devotees. Though the problems are varied from mundane to spiritual, his responses invariably include inter alia, the prescription of constant remembrance through repetition of the Name of God, practice of Universal Love and Service, surrender to Supreme Will and prayer. All the topics from the first edition have been incorporated in part 1 from topic 1- 13 and from 17 - 33. All the talks in Part 1 and II are arranged in this book according to the central message contained therein and not in chronological order. May the all-merciful Beloved Papa, Pujya Mataji, Pujya Swamiji and other Mahatmas bestow their Blessing on us to drink abundantly from the fountain of Wisdom and nourish our yearning soul with the nectar. May their Guiding Rays illumine our path and correct our vision to perceive the Light of Supreme in one and all.
