Seen by many as a savior, Asaram Bapu propagates a simple, healthy and happy lifestyle through his discourses and anti-addiction campaign
"All actions rebound, so do good"
It took two hours of waiting in the blazing sun, standing barefoot on the road, not to mention a car chase. But it was all-worthwhile as Narayan Sai consents to talk to us. Like his father, Narayan too is dressed in a white kurta and dhoti, sandalwood paste on his forehead, his face glowing with peace and love.
Narayan doesn't like to talk about himself. "I'm a householder and as yet have no children." For him, Asaram Bapu is God. He recounts how since childhood he has been watching his father work for the well-being of society. "We must learn to adopt the best values of any culture, and not get carried away with the glamour. Bapuji is simplifying life by guiding you on the right path in your daily life. If you're a householder, then you must discharge those duties properly. When you are bogged down with problems, just work harder to solve all your problems.
"You must look within to find peace and happiness, not seek it in material things. This is where a realized master can help people. Only a lucky few are blessed with a guru who can guide you on the right path. It all comes down to karmas-past and present. Karmas make or break us. We all must work hard to make this world a better place to live in, not sit down to chant the word 'impossible'. Nothing is impossible. God looks after his own. God is present in all of us, in everything around us. We have to see that God in every human being, all living creatures."
This is probably the reason why Asaram's devotees address each other as prabhu (God) and greet each other with Hari Om.
Adds Narayan: "Irrespective of caste, creed and culture we must look after our fellow human beings. We are looking for global peace, aren't we? Here, saints.
