“Murad and Malamita”
 

Sri. J.M.Sarma

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 following topics.

Murad:

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:

(a) Selfish;
(b) Fazli;
(c) Ahli;
(d) Devotee;
(e) Murad.

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

Malamita:

Pujya Lalaji Maharaj says Devotees of God, Sant, and Sadhu etc have three stages

(1) Ayad or Abid
(2) Sufia
(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 called Malamita.”3

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 life.
2. Always talk what we can do and we should do what we talk.
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.
