Good Company Brings About Betterment With Ease
Shri Maharaj often used to say, "whoever merely stays put here, will have his task accomplished automatically". When Vaman Rao Jnyaneshwari asked him to explain the meaning of "have his task accomplished automatically." Shri Maharaj said, "The minds of those who stay put here are like sooty, burnt utensils, and virtuous company is like a flowing brook. I leave the utensils to soak in the brook of virtuous company. When the utensils get thoroughly soaked, they can be cleaned easily by going over them only once. Likewise, the minds of these persons settle easily into a state of nearness of God."
