Srila Giri Maharaja – “Do not follow every frivolous inspiration that appears in your mind.”

Date: 12/14/19

Chandramukhi Devi,

When chanting, the inspiration and words came and if it caused
any harm, please excuse.

The mind is very difficult to control, but you must control it. Do not follow every frivolous inspiration that appears in your mind.

If you have any serious point to make or question to ask of me you may do so. Otherwise, consult your guru about the difficulty you have controlling your mind.

Sincerely,

Swami B.K. Giri

Dear Srimati Chandramukhi Devi,

I offer you my dandavat pranamas in remembrance of my Divine Masters.

You wrote to me:

Your Sannyasi Gurudeva says; everything is perfect, the imperfection lies within us, we are to adjust to the environment not the other way around. Pointing out the bad behavior of others only brings the bad behavior back to the pointer. We are to see the good in others. Pride and enviousness are very tricky in this age of quarrel and hypocrisy.

I am very much aware of what Srila Guru Maharaja says with regards to the above and many other things. If you were familiar with my preaching you would know that.

Our gurus have said thousands upon thousands of things, many of which you will find documented on our website. All must be understood from a proper perspective.

It seems you have some point in writing the above to me. That point is; that there is some imperfection in me who you see as part of your environment and rather than see “the imperfection lies within us [yourself]” and “adjust to the environment” you see it “the other way around.” In other words, rather than see the imperfection within yourself and adjust to your environment you see some imperfection in me — a part of your environment — and want to change me in some way.

Did I understand your point correctly?

If not, please explain why you have written to me.

Sincerely,

Swami B.K. Giri
