The essence of Bharata lies in Her culture of Self-realization. Param Atman is not seen as something apart, but as our very essence, the one True Self that resides in the heart of us all. Raising ourselves from ordinary individuals to the heights of Supreme Consciousness is only possible with the guidance of one who is already in that transcendent state. Such a one is called a Satguru, a True Yogi, as in one who has gained mastery over the mind, one who is beyond the mind.
A True Yogi Of Sreemad Bhagvad Gita
In Sreemadh Bhagvad Gita Bhagvan Shri Krishna says who is True Yogi ?
kurvann api na lipyate
Sreenad Bhagvad Gita 5.7
One who works in devotion, who is a pure soul, and who controls his mind and senses, is dear to everyone, and everyone is dear to him. Though always working, such a man is never entangled.
naiva kincit karomiti
yukto manyeta tattva-vit
pasyan srnvan sprsan jighrann
asnan gacchan svapan svasan
pralapan visrjan grhnann
unmisan nimisann api
vartanta iti dharayan
A person in the divine consciousness, although engaged in seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, eating, moving about, sleeping and breathing, always knows within himself that he actually does nothing at all. Because while speaking, evacuating, receiving, opening or closing his eyes, he always knows that only the material senses are engaged with their objects and that he is aloof from them.
brahmany adhaya karmani
sangam tyaktva karoti yah
lipyate na sa papena
One who performs his duty without attachment, surrendering the results unto the Supreme God, is not affected by sinful action, as the lotus leaf is untouched by water.
kayena manasa buddhya
kevalair indriyair api
yoginah karma kurvanti
The yogis, abandoning attachment, act with body, mind, intelligence, and even with the senses, only for the purpose of purification.
Perfection must be sought in the right place. Thousands of years ago it was discovered in Ancient Dev Bhumi Bharata, that perfection could not be found in the external world, which is impermanent and full of contradictions. Freedom from all limitations is the Vedantic criterion of perfection. Immutable Truth, unity of existence, boundless bliss, this is what is meant by perfection in Vedanta. There is only one thing, which is free from all limitations of time, space, causation: It is absolute consciousness. It is in the depths of consciousness, that perfection is to be sought.It is this total freedom that is the vedantic criterion of perfection, and the individual who has attained this freedom is the ideal of perfection. He is known as the Bramavit, knower of Brahman.
Param Pujya Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu is the embodiment of this ancient Vedantic ideal of perfection. The ideal person according to Vedanta is one who after attaining liberation for himself strives for the liberation of others. Such a fully illuminated soul is called a Rishi. It is as a perfect Brahma Rishi that Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu is said to be the ideal man & a True Yogi of Shrimad Bhagavad Gita for modern age.
From ancient times up to the present day, an unbroken succession of Self-realized Yogis, Sages, Saints have incarnated in the Land of Yogis & Saints Bharata to lead seekers of Truth to the ultimate reality.
Yada Yada hee Dharmasya glaneer bhavati Bharat

Paritranaaya Sadhunaam Vinaashaya cha Dushkritaam
Dharma Sansthapna arthaya Sambhavami Yuge Yuge
Gita 4.7 & 8
Bhagvan Shri Krishna Says In Srimad Bhagvad Gita:-
“Arjuna Whenever righteousness is on the decline, unrighteousness is in the ascendent, then I body Myself forth For the Protection of the virtuous, for the extirpation of evil-doers, and for establishing Dharma on a firm footing, I manifest Myself from age to age.”
