10. Attitude of Jagadguru Yogarushi (Dr.) Swami
Satyaprakash of always thinking of others and his egolessness !
Given further are some virtues that I observed in founder of VISHWA from Canada Jagadguru Yogarushi (Dr.) Swami Satyaprakashji and analysis of some points told by him.
11. Some virtues of Jagadguru Yogarushi (Dr.) Swami Satyaprakashji noticed by me
11 A. Eating mahaprasad at the time nominated by the ashram and not as per his own convenience to prevent inconvenience to seekers
When asked he would like to eat mahaprasad or prasad he said he would follow the timings of the ashram. Swamiji wakes up at Brahmamuhurt (3.30 a.m.) hence usually he eats prasad and mahaprasad earlier than others and does not eat after sunset.
11 B. He said Bhavanaji (SSRF Saint H.H. (Mrs.) Bhavana Shinde) has asked me to visit the ashram. Now I will behave as per your norms, all I know is you have to command and I have to obey.
11 C. Not preserving his own identity
One day after eating prasad when asked whether he needed a finger bowl to wash hands he replied if this is done then it will mean that the lady seeker serving is distinct from me.
12. Points on the teachings as told by Jagadguru Yogarushi (Dr.) Swami Satyaprakashji
12 A. If an individual thinks only of himself then he is committing sin and if he thinks of the other then he remains healthy
He said that wherever there is ‘I’ ness there is illness or inconvenience and wherever there is we there is wellness, that is health. When man is self-centered he commits sin. On the contrary when he thinks of the other, he becomes a giver, like the Sun.
12 B. Importance of viewing as an observer
If you look down upon someone then you devaluate yourself. When you consider that individual as yourself your value increases. If you consider every individual as a part of God then you can view him with equanimity.
