Solitude (ekanta) means being in a natural state (sahaja) of Samadhi. It has been Swamiji’s natural state for the past many incarnations. The main objective or aim of Swamiji is to uplift ordinary persons and bring them to his level. To Swamiji being alone and being in the midst of people is one and the same. He continues to experience ekanta even when he is surrounded by a crowd all around him. If Swamiji were to feel that being among people is disgusting then it means that he has not achieved true ekanta.
Does Swamiji enjoy the company of people or does he enjoy solitude (ekanta)?
