'I made a huge mistake.' Yes, not me but some BKs who have taken the gyaan since few years and are good at dharna and service - they also make mistakes for which they feel really bad about and hence one of them writes an email to us accepting and seeking for guidance. This Kumari was in Gyan through her loukik family since childhood. We give guidance with the full understanding that God has come and explained the accurate meaning of 'Shrimat'.
Original Email we Received
I know Baba since a child.. my whole family follows him. But today I have done a terrible mistake. I was doing that mistake since a long time... It became like a habit.. now I am realising it.. that I was wrong.. though I knew it before also.. I want to change myself now. I can't take the guilt of that mistake.

I have promised myself I won't ever do it again but still I am not feeling good.. please help.. I m feeling restless. I m worried.. I am having exam in 3 weeks and I want to change myself n study. Please help.. Om Shanti

To: Anyone who need this OR have a similar situation
Your letter is received. You can tell any mistake you did. You should never hide it.
'If you hide your mistake, it will grow.' Understand this. When you tell your weakness to baba and ask for forgiveness, you yourself will first feel light. Shrimat is already given on what should be done.
Maya comes to take the test. If you surrender your intellect to Shiv baba and follow the shrimat, maya salutes you and goes away. This is the procedure.
Shrimat says: ''Keep your mind busy. Always. Such mistakes happen only when you free your mind. Then maya enters and if you are weak at that time, then maya wins.''
What should be done?
Knowledge is very important. Murli is the source of spiritual knowledge. Baba has given this advice to study (read or listen) Gyan murli atleast 2 times a day.
Also, you said that you have exams in 3 weeks. So this is also a way you can use to keep safe from maya (5 vices). Put your intellect and mind focussed in studies and if you feel bored, then here are Rajyoga commentaries & Swamaan commentaries - listen for 10 minutes and you will feel ''recharged''.
