Conversations with Sri Swamiji – 19


It was a fine day in August, when a devotee came to have Sri Sri Swamiji’s darshan.

The devotee had a genuine concern in his face when he met Sri Sri Swamiji. He asked, “Swamiji, there are a few who say that you have no ‘vishayam’ (information/stock). I felt very sad when I heard this.”

Sri Sri Swamiji said, ‘Vishayam’ of any sort is ‘vyavahaaram’ (calling for troubles). Only a Jnani is completely devoid of ‘vyavahaaram’.

Sri Sri Swamiji, with a gentle smile, said, ‘They are in fact praising me as a Jnani!’
