13. How Sannyasins Serve The World Through Their Thought-Vibrations
Indians have now imbibed the missionary spirit of the West and cry out that Sannyasins should come out and take part in social and political activities.
It is a sad mistake.
A Sannyasin or a Yogin need not become the President of an Association or the leader of a social or political movement.
It is a foolish and puerile idea.
A true Sannyasin can do everything through his thought-vibrations.
It is not necessary that a Sannyasin, a saint should appear on the platform to help the world, to preach and elevate the minds of people.
Some saints preach by example.
Their very lives are an embodiment of teaching.
Their very sight elevates the minds of thousands.
A saint is a living assurance for others for God-realisation.
Many draw inspiration from the sight of holy saints.
No one can check the thought-vibrations from the saints.
Their pure, strong thought-vibrations travel a very long distance, purify the world and enter the minds of many thousands of persons.
There is no doubt in this.
A sage living in a Himalayan cave can transmit a powerful thought to a corner of America.
He who practises Nishkama Karma Yoga in the world purifies himself through disinterested works and he who meditates in a cave in the Himalayas and tries to purify himself really purifies the world, helps the world at large through his spiritual vibrations.
Nobody can prevent his pure thoughts coming out and passing to others who really want them.
Worldly-minded social workers cannot understand this point.
