Cause of imperfection

Although tired of pungent penance
thou hast not reached the destination of the spiritual pilgrimage.  
What is the cause of it?

What is the reason
thou hast not acquired the haven of inner peace though making thyself captive
in some Himalayan cave situated on the banks of the Ganga,
even after confining thyself to the super-conscious state for years?

Thou walked in the company of saints and traveled every place of pilgrimage.  
Still the propitious sweet sound of soul could never be heard.  
What is the cause?

Although tired of counting rosary beads
and disgusted at reciting prayers and hymns
the sacred seashore of salvation couldn’t come in sight.  
What is the reason of it?

The reason is merely this;  
Thou hast not surrendered thyself completely
at the feet of that Master of masters – the only real Preceptor and Saviour –
in the dust of Whose feet reside the entire sacred scriptures and places of earth;
Whose glorious glance is all-sufficient for showering salvation.  
The cause is merely this.

- Shri Yogeshwarji
