Q. Maharajji! You say that the goal (of perfect happiness) can be attained with genuine faith, genuine Saint and genuine association. What should a person do if he does not have faith?
A. There is a path for such a person also: he should associate with a true Saint. When he will listen to and understand the various aspects of devotional philosophy – the importance of human life, Who God is, how God can be attained, nature of the world – that hunger or aspiration will develop with the help of philosophy. The condition is that such a person must constantly associate with a real Saint. Even if he casually and unwillingly sits and listens to philosophy, then with repetitive listening, the knowledge will enter deeper into his heart and, consequently, he will develop a natural affinity in the form of faith.
The effect of listening for just a few minutes was shared by many people. Thus, one should constantly listen to and understand. It is only upon listening, that one will understand as everyone obviously has an intellect. Gradually, the listener will realize the importance of knowledge, which will consequently evolve into faith that will lead to the attainment of one’s goal.
