“Murad and Malamita”
Dear Respected Pujya Sir, Brothers and Sisters,
I place before you my humble pranams.
By the grace of the Master, we have all assembled
here for this seminar.
First of all, I would like to express my sincere
thanks for providing me this opportunity to express
my little understanding about Master’s words ‘Murad
and Malamita’ and share my views.
The words ‘Murad and Malamita’ have lot of
meaning and Masters have spoken about them in
Pujya Babuji Maharaj while explaining about the
types of Gurus, he also explained about the types of
disciples in the topic ‘Types of Gurus’
Pujya Babuji Maharaj says
“I will let you know the types of disciples also:
Selfish disciples are those who want to gain
their own ends. Suppose a person comes to know that
Shri X is a Mahatma and a devotee of God, he will
immediately rush to him with the idea that he would
get material benefit by that contact. Such persons
who are concerned with worldly matters do not do any
work. They join the Satsangh to achieve their
selfish ends. They get things done by means of
flattery. After that they will creep away. If their
work is not done, then also they turn their back.
They have nothing to do with love and attachment.
Fazli type are those who sit for meditation
occasionally, if they are in a cheerful mood due to
the pleasant atmosphere. They have no attachment of
heart whatsoever. And Ahli are those in whom there
are Sanskaras of higher type of worship, and who
want to worship and want to continue it. Some among
them may progress and reach the position of the
devotee. Some, however, are such that they start
from the very beginning with the condition of
devotee, and a devotee is one who loves his Guru
intensely. He always keeps himself internally
connected with his Guru. Men of this type possess
all those qualities that should be present in a
disciple. From among these devotees, rarely one or
two acquire the condition of a Murad.”
A ‘Murad’ is one who has become the object of
love of his Guru. In other words, the Guru’s
attention is always centred on him. He can also be
called a beloved person and such people are rarely
found. In these days ‘Murads’ are seldom found and
likewise Gurus also are rare.”1

Pujya Lalaji Maharaj says Devotees of God, Sant,
and Sadhu etc have three stages
(1) Ayad or Abid
(3) Malamita 2
Pujya Lalaji Maharaj says
“Malamita: These persons dress like common people
and there is no difference between common people and
them. They perform the duties of Sandhya, puja etc
like other people but they do not exhibit any
miracles and supernatural things and they do not
pose themselves as famous people. They may try their
best not to reveal themselves in social gatherings
and among friends. This type of people is called
Sufi, Sant, Vali, Siddha and Sadhaka. They always do
traditional pooja like common people but they always
do the internal sadhana also. They progress all the
stages of dharma, dhyan, Samadhi etc step by step.
They do not reveal the miracles. All their dealings
will be like simple grhasta people but they try to
maintain friendship and socialisation to the extent
possible. Here Ikhlas means inner and outer is the
same without any duplicity. They do what they talk
and they talk what they do. This type of Sufis is
About my understanding of the word ‘Murad’ is to
become object of the love of Master.
Every body loves Master, but how many become
centre of His attention! That is the reason, I think
Master says these days ‘Murad’s are seldom found.
I feel, one can still try to be near to the
condition of ‘Murad’ by doing following:
1. Doing the sadhana as told by Master in the way
He has bestowed to us and become a devotee.
2. Always love Master in all aspects and act
accordingly in day to day life which pleases Master.
Loving Master is a very pious act and at the same
time demands lot of sacrifice and one should be
ready for the same.
3. Be ever ready to follow the instructions of
Master without asking any questions.
4. Be in constant remembrance of Master.
5. Always attentive to Master and live upto His
expectations. There should not be any selfish motto.
About my understanding of the word of ‘Malamita’
is living in simple and plain manner and express
whatever we feel inside. Inner and outer feelings
should be same.
I feel here also, one can try to be near to the
condition of ‘Malamita’ by doing following:
1. Always behave in simple and plain manner. Like
Master said; inner and outer should be same without
any duplicity. This may be achieved by following and
implementing Master’s commandments in our day to day
2. Always talk what we can do and we should do what
3. Be humble.
In conclusion, I feel, we are very fortunate to
have a wonderful system bestowed to us by our Pujya
Master for the transformation and we should utilise
fully in this life to live upto His expectation and
spread His message to one and all.
Once again, I thank you for providing me this
opportunity to express my views and understanding
about Master’s words. I humbly request all of you to
kindly pardon me for any mistakes.
My humble Pranams to one and all.
