Radhe Krishna To all,

It is only through Satsangh, one earns everything. One can get anything in this world but rare indeed it is to obtain the association of a Sadhu.

Sankara says, 'Manushatvam (human birth), Mumukshutvam (desire to attain Liberation), Mahapurushasamsrayam (association of a Mahapurusha)'. It is only due to the good merits earned through crores of janmas one gets human birth. And to desire Liberation is rare still. There are crores and crores of people but only a very few desire to attain God. And amongst these, many move away from their path because they do not have a Sadguru. Only a very few are blessed with the association of a great Mahatma, a great Jivan Mukta! This happens only through the Grace of God.

Only the one for whom it is the last janma earns the association of such a great Jnani.

Once a devotee from lucknow visited Ramana Maharishi. He came with the thought that he should first meet Seshadri Swamigal, receive his blessings and then receive upadesa from Ramana Maharishi. The people of the town said to him that he desired for impossible things, as it was very difficult to even see Seshadri Swamigal who was always wandering here and there around the Holy Arunachala. As for Ramana Maharishi, he never offered anything by way of upadesa. However, this man who came with deep yearning managed to get Seshadri Swamigal's darshan.

Seshadri Swamigal offered him the upadesa, "You have come seeking jnana. What is jnana? Ignore everything. That which cannot be ignored is verily the jnana!"

The devotee then went to Bhagavan Ramana's Presence. Ramana did not seem to utter anything by way of upadesa to him, though he spent two or three days in his Presence. Unable to wait any longer, one day he wrote a piece of note to the Maharishi,

"I desire to take only you as my Guru. But, no upadesa seems to fall from your lips. If you do not bless me with upadesa, I will certainly attain another janma. As I have deemed only you as my Guru, you will also have to take another birth! If you do not intend another janma bless me with upadesa now!" Reading this note, Maharishi, while walking to the dining hall, said, "If there were no Moksha for you in this janma would you have come here?" There was no other upadesa because Ramana says, "I see an Eswara shakti bringing all those who come here!"

Thus, the value of Mahans association is incomprehensible. One should not, therefore, feel, "The Mahan did not see me; he did not talk to me." It is only the Will of Bhagavan that pulls a person to the Presence of a Mahan.
