(Pritam Anand lives with Baba Ji, works a normal life and brings up family).

 

PRITAM ANAND JI:  The scripture says "you are still sleeping even though your Guru has awoken".  The scripture says that you should get up and do service of your Guru.  Eg Kabir swept floors for Guru Ramanand, Amaru fetched bath water for Guru Angad in the early morning.     So Pritam Anand gets up before Baba ji, gets tea ready for him and waits for him to come downstairs.  Then he prostrates (dandauth).

 

BABA JI: I never expect any service from anyone.  I said to God, “I only want to serve You, not to be served.”

 

PRITAM ANAND JI:  I am so blessed to get to see the Guru everyday.    Everything is gained through God’s grace.   However, it is not practical for everyone to serve their Guru in person.   This is a spiritual path, so you just have to have the attitude that you are serving your Guru in everything you do.   Keep this serving attitude on the inside and you will get the spiritual rewards inside too. 

 

When Shotee Mata Ji was blessed with God’s light – enlightenment – before anyone else in our family.  I pressed my nose on her feet in humility for 1.5 hrs.  I respected her just as I respect and worship Akal Purakh.  If I had got jealous who knows God could have made me depressed. 

 

BABA JI: If one person in the family has manifest light inside them treat them like your Guru.  Don’t hurt that family member, don’t upset them.  Rather than crticise anyone, especially spiritual people, it is better to stay quiet – until we are complete we cant judge them.
