On Faith

A light drizzle,  jam packed VM, lilting satsang and a deeply meditative atmosphere – it was a wonderful Satsang last evening and Guruji spoke at length.

Someone asked “How to increase faith?”

Guruji paused for a long time and then said

“One cannot increase faith, either you have it or you don’t.

Whenever you feel that you have less faith, it indicates that you have faith. Whenever you realize that (that you have less faith), it (faith) has returned back, the doubt has ended.

In the Sama Veda there is a shloka that says I am building a bridge from lack of faith to faith.

You are that bridge”
