Lessons being taught on good deeds, good manners remain appreciable irrespective of the person giving the lecture or reading holy books etc. Just to make sure that serving poor or satisfying hunger are means of serving god, you need not read satcharithra. These good things are minimal acknowledgements to be made by “our selves”. But why do we read satcharithra? It is a great book that discusses everything so that one can renew himself and turn out to be a better person. We are grown enough that we can make our own decisions live independently know what is good or bad. Again another question arises. If we know all the good happenings then what is the need for us to read about some old sayings? If anyone asks me this question I would definitely go “for” the person’s views. Now I will shoot a query for these people “How many good things have you been practicing? Believe me many of them do not have a valid answer.
So what is this Satcharithra about? Everyone think for a moment. Does reading the precious writing of Hemadpant once is enough to know the essence of the book? Definitely the answer is no. But a single reading of the book will make you realize what we are missing – the purpose of our lives – Atmasakshatkara
Continue to read the book. Once, twice, thrice or innumerable times. It does not matter. While you read, at one point all the senses, mind, heart gets focused and then you reach what you call is the swayam tripthi or atmasantripthi – where we satisfy the inner deity within ourselves. Later on you transform to a better person and strive for the reason you were born. That is when you completely understand the beloved book.
