Happy GuruPurnima 2020 - Go take a sip of that bliss within....

Image
The Master is everyone's but yet nobody's. Once Swami Rama's disciple said to his master that He was so fortunate to have spent so many years with his master, Bengali Baba, to which Swami Rama disapprovingly answered, "How can one be with someone who has no time for anyone but God?" Meaning, that even though Swami Rama was physically with his master all the time, His master was elsewhere all the time - with the Divine. The Master is nothing different. Those who meet Him soon get to know that He belongs to noone but the Lord himself. Before one can settle into the feeling of 'He is mine', He has already skipped elsewhere catering to someone's need and before they can understand that He cannot be caught under rules and tradition, He has moved elsewhere to the next and before one can make Him settle into the comforts of riches and luxury, He is already in some other place. While he was actively teaching, he was like the wind, moving from one place to the…

I am impure. . . Will it take ages to purify?

Image
Today morning was speaking to one sadhak, whom I noticed was saying (subconsciously) “I am impure… it might take ages to purify…” I precisely pointed out this point as something that was causing him confusions and helplessness. I come up with these things often during contemplations and have realized how important it is to not hold guilt or a feeling of self-disgust, because that complicates everything, according to my Master. While religion told me all my life that I was a sinner and I need to believe that, I found how badly it impacted my life and the lives of so many. Self-condemnation is the worst sin actually, and even this sin need not be held on to. Everything changed when I met my Master who had a different approach altogether. For anyone’s sin, he would say, “So what?” I was confused. How could a saint take a sin so lightly, for I had taken my sins very seriously, I hoped that he nail it further deep into me, like what my superiors in life had already done. Do you get what no…

Guru is fire, who gives warmth but also burns you

Image
Few strive to be like Him, but in vain, because it is not easy being fire. It is easy be a candle or a lamp and think that it is fire, but that is not how the Siddhas are made. They are burnt out, they are ashes, burnt out of ego, pride, vanity and self-righteousness. That is why they can look beyond themselves, that is why there are full of unconditional love. Unconditional love cannot be taught or preached, it can be only done. He doesn't preach, He is that way. He doesn't teach or preach through sarcasm but when he gets sarcastic or straight, it is with a sheer higher motive and not a motive motivated by the ego, a motive that is tangible and felt, even through his face of disagreement or anger or disapproval, for even that face is unreal if you truly can look at it because behind that is the Master, expecting only the highest for the countless ones that are dear to him.
He has no favourites, but he can make one feel that way or make one feel too precious, the myth that easi…

Medley of Master's Fave Bhajans & Sing-Along Karaoke with lyrics

Image
Namah shivay!

It is almost a decade since i had published the video of a collection of bhajans that the Master sung frequently back then. i had composed a medley of these bhajans and sung it fervently also. This was my first music experiment with spiritual music. Those days Youtube only allowed 10 minutes videos and thus it was split in 3 parts, but become very popular back then and has attracted close to 2 lakhs views.
I am reposting the video in full now but also happy to state that i was able to make a Karaoke version of that video also by adding lyrics on the screen so that one could sing along with the ready-made music and chorus in the background. The main vocals is decreased for singer to identify correct song on beats.
ORIGINAL VIDEO OF THE MEDLEY RELEASED IN 2010


KARAOKE VERSION OF THE SAME VIDEO WITH SING-ALONG LYRICS




Gratitude to the Master and the Path

Image
There were numerous life incidents in life that forced me to stop and wonder  if God ever existed. There were times when I had to get to the knees. Everytime it happened I observed that my vision turned inward to contemplate on this deep question. Soon, before I knew, my mind and eye had began turning inward. 
After coming in touch with the great Masters of the path, I realised these are called life lessons, which are actually a blessing than a curse and the path taught me how to further enrich that inner eye. 
That's how life is designed for all of us. We are meant to undertake this inner journey sooner or later. Either we do it by choice and free will or life will do it for us - for good. So, look back and see if there have been blows and knock downs. You will see that it were these very experiences that brought you today to where you were supposed to be. This is precisely when the soul will only have appreciations and immense gratitude to all those people and circumstances that s…

My First experience with the Master

Image
Gurudev was conducting a healing program in Salisbury Park,
Pune in 1998 and a friend coaxed me literally as i refused to go meet any Guru. Then he told me that the program was about healing karmic factors and that struck something in me, because i knew had some heavy karmic stuff in me. i was nonetheless looking for avenues to unload that heavy stuff, and then i thought why not go peep in.
That is how i reached the event place for the event and i remember it was a 9 days program. 3 days Siddha healing, 3 days Shambhavi and 3 days Sri Vidya. i knew heads nor tails of these words and since i had decided to only peep in, i registered along with my friend for only the first event for 3 days and reached Pune. i eventually got to know that we had booked late and we had got the extra space and when i walked into the venue there was a huge crowd. Our seats were in the back, and were plastic chairs that seemed like a last-moment arrangement for the extras. i soon realized that it wasn't a …

A Living Example of Practical Spirituality That We Look Upon To

Image
When i move through the illusions of the world, i get distracted often, stumbling on the unreal Many things that don't align with the highest truth An imperfect world judged by my imperfect views Overwhelmed at times at the crimes on this planet Shaken by the heartlessness of souls Confused by the dissonance of speech and actions Minds battling with gods and devils within Pained often by the piercing words and actions of others A feeling that this world doesn't belong to me Or more that i do not belong to this world
But simultaneously i also realize that the earth is made for this very purpose A platform of play of all kinds A place where Gods strive to take birth A place where humans get to become gods A place where one works out their karmas A place where there are examinations
And then, amidst all the play of duality, My hope strives when i see the possibility... possibility of penetrating these qualities of life A living possibility, when i see my Gurudev Firmly grounded in the divine connectio…
