The kindness of a guru is indescribable, but due to our lack of faith, we fail to realise the extent of his compassion and greatness. From the very beginning of our spiritual journey until the very end, he always serves us. If we could just realise this, we would gain immeasurably ...
The teachings of Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj encourage us to move speedily in the pursuit of happiness. They not only explain the scriptures, God and bhakti with clarity and love, but also challenge us to acknowledge our faults and how they impede our progress. The importance of introspection in spirituality is therefore irrefutable, and yet, few aspirants do it. Kripalu Ji Maharaj asserts that through acceptance we can overcome our faults, and only then will we progress.
Atma Nirikshan explains why we should become systematic evaluators of our spiritual progress, and then shows us how to do it. Over eleven short chapters, succinctly compiled from various discourses, Kripaluji begins by establishing the need for self-evaluation, before discussing various related topics such as the qualities of a genuine spiritual aspirant, the foundation stones of bhakti, how to practice introspection in isolation, maintaining our equilibrium amidst criticism and praise, the milestones in devotion that denote our progress or regress, and why till today we have failed to fully ultilise the grace being showered upon us by God and guru.
