Here was another evidence of Einstein’s theory of relativity. Einstein had postulated that each observer had his own frame of reference and a unique time of his own, that time existed differently for different observers in different frames of reference. There was one frame of reference Einstein had not visualised–Shri Nathji’s spiritual frame, in which time ceased to exist altogether.
Though dusk would turn to twilight, the sun would set, and the stars appear, time would leave untouched those swept away by the divine current of Shri Nathji. It was very likely that those who sat in his spiritual presence and experienced timelessness did not age for the time they were bathed in his divine flow.
Time was arrested and age was arrested for a brief while for those who sat before Shri Nathji for a short time. A broader extension of this experience led to the concept of eternal life.
If one could be before God all the time, experiencing Him in His real Self, one would become ageless, forever immortal. This, plus the eternal happiness one derived, would be another name for salvation.
As Shri Nathji would frequently say:

“Sohbate yak saayate baa auliyaa
Behtar az sad saalaye taayat be riyaa

A few moments spent in the company of an Enlightened Soul
Are of greater worth than the worship of a hundred years.”

The complete cessation of thought and the experience of divine bliss in the few moments spent in Shri Nathji’s company were a taste of salvation.
There was a time when Shri Nathji had said to his devotees in India:
“While sitting before me did any of you have any thought for salvation? No. That was because you were already in it!”
