Shri Nathji had this unique capacity to explain even the most complex of spiritual philosophies in the simplest of words, using the simplest of examples and parables. It was this aspect of his sermons that endeared him to the greatest of intellectuals as well as the common folk.
When someone asked Shri Nathji whether man was guided by his own will or the Will of God, Shri Nathji gave the beautiful explanation below:
Man has been given a limited freedom to perform his actions. In this lies the law of Karma–the law of cause and effect. However, ultimately he must bow before the Will of God.
Think of a kite flying in the sky. It is held by a string. When the string is slack, the kite appears to be master of its own will and flies wherever it likes. But the moment the string is made taut, the kite realises it is in the hands of the one who holds the string, and it has to be guided by His Will.
The manner in which Shri Nathji explained complex spiritual truths using such simple examples and parables filled people with astonishment. So logically perfect was Shri Nathji’s reasoning that it made scientists and intellectuals applaud. Shri Nathji’s sermons revealed the true face of God, a face that everyone could understand.
After Shri Nathji’s marriage in 1939, Lala Hargopal Khanna, the father-in-law of Shri Nathji, who was a senior advocate at Lahore, said to Shri Nathji. Nathji, you have come into this world ever-enlightened. Your reasoning power is so perfect that you would have made a wonderful judge or lawyer.
Shri Babaji Maharaj, who was also present, added:
But now even advocates and judges flock to him!
