Message from the Master
30 December 2017
'Those who are brahmacharis take the Guru as their only shelter, goal, partner, friend, and beloved, as the Guru is all to them. The whole process of purification is happening through intensifying the inner and becoming more and more aware in each moment. This is austerity for brahmacharis and brahmacharinis.
Jal brahmacharis and brahmacharinis have somewhat different tools and environment although the purpose and goal are the same. The Guru is the only shelter, beloved, friend and so on, but while brahmacharis focus more on the inner, the jal brahmacharis are deepening their experiences of life while being active in the outer world. That is the austerity of jal brahmacharis/brahmacharinis.'
