His humanitarian spirit transcends caste, creed, color and religion. He can teach us how to confront problems and challenges or give us his vision of a world without wars, which is much needed in today´s world. As Dadaji says, the root cause of wars is irreverence towards life. If we all learn to revere life, especially each other’s, then the world will be a place without quarrels, war and the connected evils.
Dadaji is an inspired speaker. His words emerge spontaneously from the heart which is full of love for God, fellow human beings and all the living creatures on this planet. One distinguishing feature of his discourses which attracts the people is the practicability of the subjects, and the most straightforward manner he employs to put across the deepest of philosophies. His simple language, his profound thoughts, his universal outlook, his captivating voice, all interspersed with delightful anecdotes and instances from the lives of the saints and the great ones of East and West, keep the audience transfixed and makes them feel that they are in some other world altogether. His words find a home in every heart and many in the audience often feel that Dadaji´s message specially relates to them in their particular state of being.
“Thou Art the great magnet, O Lord, may I be a tiny iron filing!” — These words of Dadaji show his humble nature. He is an embodiment of love and compassion, of saintliness and humility. An avid propagator of vegetarianism, Dadaji has authored many books on secrets of happiness and non-violent living. His participation in many world conferences on religion, compassion and humanity has spiritually enriched the world. His fiery, thought-provoking speeches have aroused interest in Indian religion and culture. His sermons and life style are the best example of ‘preach what you practise’.
“It is essential to develop intellect and to acquire manual skills. But the most important is the training of the heart.” Training of the heart… for what?… to love and serve. “Love and service are what the world needs the most now. Look on service as an offering of love for God”. This is what Sadhu Vaswani Mission has been doing through its numerous centers worldwide, including the ones in Colon and Panama City.
As Sadhu Vaswani had said: “If you want to be happy, make others happy!”
