, Those who apply their analytical Swamiji ranks among such Yogis of our times. The attitude of such
mind, with the help of logical deductions

Yogis towards life is entirely different from those of the commoners.
The way they make us see that truth is also unique and extraordinary. In
order to reveal that Truth, they often shed flashes of light in our otherwise
dark hearts. We will then be able to see the hidden impediments lying in
our spiritual path. This will enable us to quicken our steps in our journey
towards the Almighty.
This collection of discourses by His Holiness Sri Ganapati
Sachchidananda Swamiji, verily the embodiment of the divine principle
of Lord Dattatreya, belongs to the category of rare divine flashes of
light. Therefore this collection is both God word as well as Godward.
These are words, which explain to us about God. These also are the
words, which take us Godward. Words act as flashes of light! To bind
the rays of light is indeed a commendable job. When it is accomplished,
the result will be a Sun, which imparts light perpetually.

Howsoever great progress or attainments one may make at the material
level, real contentment and happiness will always evade him till his
soul gets the nourishment of the spiritual experience. To have experience
at the spiritual level, the need of Sadguru's company as well as
recollections of his precepts and teachings are very essential. They charge
a devotee, from time to time, to remain steadfast in his journey to the
spiritual destination shown by the Sadguru.
Kabir - the great poet saint has said "It is the Guru who is in possession
of the Divine Word which leads to the understanding of God ... Sadguru
is like a true warrior who shoots the arrow of the Word. The moment it
struck me, I was flat on the ground and a hole was cleaved into my
heart (to see God)". Such is the power of Word!
