ShriMaharaj used to tell his followers, "Take refuge in Me." A sadhaka who had stayed with him for several years dedicatedly asked him, "Maharaj, what is the true sense of Take refuge in Me?" Upon this ShriMaharaj said "Here, Me refers to God. To take refuge in Him means to surrender to Him; that is, mentally to offer oneself to Him. To offer oneself is to merge one's will with His will. To merge will means to look upon Him as the controller of one's life, For this, one should conduct oneself the way He likes. To do one's duty in domestic life and practise namasmarana, is what He likes."
