Solving Abhav Avgun
Gadhada 1-31: “Whosoever takes abhãv avgun, their mind becomes a breeding ground for evil (maya).”
Destruction of the Soul
Gadhada 3-22: he would rather chop off his own arm than take abhãv avgun of his haribhakto
Yogi Bapa says “Taking avgun is like drinking poison.”
Loya 1- when we take abhãv avgun, we are literally cutting off our head.
Gadhada 1-71: “God forgives all other mistakes, but he does not forgive the mistake of spiting a devotee of God. Therefore, one should never harm a devotee of God in any way whatsoever.
Yogi Bapa: "Maare to ekaj sidhant - koi no avgun nai levu"
Satya, hit ne priya evu vachan bolvu ne upekshaa rahit bolvu pan aagrahthi vachan kahevu nahi.
“If one brings one lakh rupees, but if he finds faults in others, I do not like him; whereas if there is another person who sleeps and eats all day and looks at the positive side of everyone, then I will do his seva.” - Gunatitanand Swami
“If everyone would stop this and focus on the positive points, I would stay on this earth for 50 more years.” - Yogi Bapa
