I had heard a lot about Dr. Narayan Dutt Shrimali in connection with occult knowledges. Both the ascetic and the householder aspirants had accepted his unrivalled authority. I hoped to meet this great scholar and talk to him regarding the field of spiritualism. At last my long cherished desire was fulfilled, and he spared me a few moments from his busy schedule. Following is the conversation which took place between us.
In fact you cannot realise anyone’s spiritual age through the medium of mind, therefore it is useless to challenge the age, life and the powers of a Yogi. In fact there is no such ground on which we can criticize or counter them.
There is nothing such as death in this celestial land of elixir. Everybody is free from all kinds of sorrows, weakness, and anxieties. All seem to be savouring the effects of pleasure, juvenility and happiness. Even today one can see the great Yogis like Vashishtha. Vishwamitra, Garg, Atri, Kanad, Shri Krishna, Shankaracharya etc. wandering about, and can converse with them for acquiring guidance in various Sadhanas. In fact it is the duty of Siddhashrami to maintain the equilibrium between materialism and spiritualism, and to work it out extraordinary Yogis present themselves in this world, from time to time.
A person can enter Siddhashram only through spiritual powers and only then he achieves the totality of life.
Therefore it is useless to compare the two. However, even the western scientists have accepted the transcendental powers of the Yogis and they are researching in this field.
And if people make fun about it, it only specifies their narrow mentality. Those who are incompetent themselves, can do nothing but make fun of others. And it is wise to ignore fools.
Therefore it is useless to hope for divine favours unless you are pure within.
Basically we consider only those things authentic, which we are able to see, when in fact it is but just a millionth part of the creation. The whole universe is distributed into two parts–physical and metaphysical. And this metaphysical universe is beyond our realisation. It consists of many worlds which are unique in every way in comparison to the physical one and a person can enter it only through the power of Sadhana.
However, miracles can be experienced from time to time, and can only be exhibited under special circumstances.
Even the Gods are eager to acquire his glimpse. It is possible only through the help of a Guru related to the Siddhashram, and thus a person can meet him after accomplishing Sadhanas of the highest order.
But those who are determined, face all the challenges smilingly. The flame of Sadhana continues to ignite in their hearts and thus they become precious jewels, of this field, in future. My doors are always open to such aspirants who are willing to sacrifice themselves for achieving these extraordinary knowledges.
