[Essential part of the teaching given on 4/3/46 at Prayag]
Those are on the royal path who make the observance of the daily and occasional duties according the veda and the shastras and worship Bhagvan as instructed by a real guru according to one´s ability. They never can get confused and attainment of the desired happiness and peace is certain for them.
Those people who don´t have connection to the veda and shastras and are only supporting sectarian rules or are following a self-willed path they are like following the foot track apart from appreciating the royal path. Footpaths just come out from royal path; but how far they can carry the seeker towards the destination place, this cannot be said. Because it is not hard for anyone walking on the foot track to get confused about the path. On narrow path there is always the nearness of a real guru and skilful path-seer necessary; but it is difficult for all ordinary people;
Therefore there is a fear for these kind of people – going astray and falling in any ditch or pit and not reaching the destination; therefore people should not leave the support of the royal path.
Life span is very short. May you can advance within this short lifetime in the direction of your desired destination as far as possible, you should move progressively.
It is not wise being involved in pulling and tugging in sectarian activities and making your path polluted and doing sordid things in your invaluable human lifetime.
Real welfare is just not possible by limited sectarian worship.
If in the idol of Vishnu, devotees of lord Shiva cannot see their Shiva and devotees of Shakti cannot see their Goddess, then they themselves are denying the all-pervasiveness of their own chosen deity. The seeker also remains unfulfilled from such limited experiences.
Nowadays refusal and opposition have increased in separated various opinions and this is exactly the result that one has not acknowledged one´s own desired deity as all pervasive.
If all agree to begin seeing their own chosen deity as all pervasive, then there would never
be any spite. Because then the chosen deities of the others will also give view of the all
pervasiveness of one´s own deity. And by this good experiences are mutually spread and the undivided light of true innate universal love will bekindled and a real stable society is coming up and the whole world will become a storehouse of permanent happiness and peace.
