A weekly sharing on Savitri by Dr Alok Pandey (an audio recording in English).
In every age of mankind there have been great beings, luminous Masters who have shown the Path towards the Divine. This time the Divine coming as the Mother forged a new bond between the seeker and the Master.
Behind the restless urge of life there is indeed a seeking, a seeking which cannot be satisfied until the very Highest, the Absolute, the Perfect, the Ultimate is reached and realized. This is the real cause of its misery and unhappiness.
To trust the inner Divine and leave oneself in His hands is the road to freedom from the entire chain of cause and effect.
To seek the true joys in life and avoid all sufferings is the secret of our sadhana. It is thus that we grow in love to the Divine Beloved seated within us and become one with the divine nature.

A talk by Dr Alok Pandey at Savitri Readers Bhavan, Bhubaneswar, in April 2018.
