Making the best of ShivYog

Babaji has now increased the number of shivirs than he was doing before and had mentioned in the beginning of the year 2010 to make the best use of this year. Babaji is doing his best to reach out to as many people as possible and at the same time it is not just his intentions but the intentions of the growing number of sadhaks. If the collective need for babaji's blessings are strong from any geographical location, he is there soon. He also makes sure that he reaches out to far locations atleast once in a year for he knows sadhaks are waiting for him. Babaji is at his full best to what he can contribute to the society, to planet earth and to existence itself. He is fully geared with his powerful stance and looks, ready to pour out love and grace at the slightest move.

It is a great blessing for mankind that gurus are emerging all around with an attitude of selfless service and a determined attitude to ascend all beings and thus ascend the planet itself. It is commendable to see gurus showering their grace, teaching man to take control of life, healing people's emotional, mental and physical needs, bringing people on track, driving away negative entities, teaching people hatta yoga to keep the physical body fit, teaching people sadhana to enrich their lives and move towards their goal of liberation from birth and death cycle, teaching people to love and forgive, teaching people to have more fulfilling relationships, revealing to people their own vices and thus helping them overcome it, giving people mantras to help curb their negative situations, boosting the morale and confidence of all those seriously wanting enlightenment, practically demonstrating by living what they preach, setting up ashrams and retreats for creating an environment conducive for spirituality, teaching everyone to share what they have with fellow beings, bringing out secrets ever hidden since ages in vedic scriptures out to the human for their benefit, and what not all to enhance their spiritual growth!! Gratitude and love to all the siddhas and gurus of the world for their unshakable support in physical and nonphysical forms!

It is now up to the human beings to make the best use of this period. Humans only, because only humans have the power to chose and to do karma (deed). If humans take enough responsibility on this, then all other living beings also will benefit because humans have the power to manifest for the entire Universe. A collective mass of people projecting the same goal become a very powerful tool to manifest the same outcome for the entire creation. The more people get on to a common goal the more faster they are attracted into reality. This is the best time to make use of this great boon of unlimited support and help from divinity.

For ShivYog sadhaks, Babaji's shivirs are the best place to take the maximum benefit of soul evolution. Babaji speaks a lot in general but deep within those words and actions are hidden pearls of enlightenment. The best way to benefit from his shivirs are to go with a humble act of surrender. While one surrenders to the outcome of the shivir, one must make sure one is "alive" all the time to grasp every single word that he says. Alive means to be alert and awake. The logic mind must be left at home. If one succeeds in leaving the logic back and going with total surrender there is an enormous amount of energy that takes care of what needs to be taken care within you. Because your logic does not now control you, the divine takes charge of you. It knows what is best for you; the logic may not know - for the logic is what you have inherited and cultivated through your hard toiling through different phases of life. Logic is not necessarily the truth but it is just the perception of your truth in life. The way your mind has set up its boundaries, rules, theories, excuses, methods, etc, etc. In simple words they are a bundle of confusion. In more simpler words it is because of logic that you are where you are or what your are. So the logic must not be carried anymore into the shivir. At the same time the logic left behind must not be collected back when one returns. The energies that one carries back from babaji will not allow to take back the logic if one has fully taken in the blessings but in the period of time one can slowly revert back. One has to be extra careful on this. In many cases, one forgets where one left the logic or after returning one may not find the logic alive anymore but all that depends on the quality of surrender and grace taken. If the surrender and craving for changing oneself is very strong, then the karmic layers that created the logic vanishes and thus vanishes the logic too!

Effort should be made to be in the high energy field of the shivir and to keep absorbing every atom of Sanjeevani. Avoiding unnecessary talks, arguments and other distracting activities are a boon to receiving the energy. Within the first day itself, the entire atmosphere in the vicinity of Babaji changes and there is a cloud of bliss showering the rain of peace and tranquility. The most encouraging part in Babaji's shivir is that no matter what one may be or no matter how much ever negativity one holds, they just don't seem to affect or work anymore in Babaji's presence. This high-field energy remains in the venue even after Babaji leaves for break or for the day. One should enjoy even those invisible forces dancing there in his physical absence.

As babaji mentions always one should try to attune with his nonphysical self than longing to be with his body, asking questions just for the sake of asking, or trying to gather his physical attention in any manner. Babaji teaches the art of merging with everything in nature, merging the rhythm of your body to any body in nature, merging the rhythm of your soul to any soul in nature, merging your consciousness with any consciousness in nature. If this can be done, do it with your guru. In shivirs, one should try to be merged with him as though you and he are not separate. It is my personal experience that the bliss that you get in his acknowledgement in the nonphysical cannot be compared with physical acknowledgement. Babaji is not what he just seems to be. He seems to be a a human person, a spiritual person, sitting there and talking to all and teaching all and healing all. It is more than that. He is present with all at every moment. The moment one gets into that mode of merging with his consciousness one will notice this.  I have had this personal experience in one of the shivir where I was experimenting conversing with him in the shivir nonphysically and when the results were coming I was not very sure of it (the logic!!) I kept on trying and one moment I found my soul bowing with folded hands in gratitude to him while my physical body was erect and apt in listening to what he was saying. Immediately babaji turned towards me and with a bright smile made a slight bow as though to acknowledge my greeting and I was thrilled and shocked too (rather my logic was shocked and soul was thrilled.) From then, I always thought naughtily in my mind, "Babaji, you are just not what you seem to be."

But when one is just sitting there listening to him or watching him on TV, he looks so simple. Just another being sitting there and "preaching". The times when I am disconnected or in my own logic world all I see is a human being sitting and talking something. I think that is where the entire difference lies. That is why people keep going for pravachans from their gurus and remain in the same miserable state they were years back. The connectivity is missing. It is not the guru's verbal communication that makes the subject enlightening, but it is the quality of your connection to the guru at that moment of time. When the connections are missing or logic is strong, this can be easily seen when Babaji on and often says, "Believe me!" "Trust me!" "I am saying the truth!" "Blindly follow what I say!" This is not what he says to you but it is what he constantly says to your logic!  These psychic connections can be made with any human being or any living thing or any consciousness if one understands the merging process what Babaji teaches.  Here also, this merging process looks like just a method. It is not! It is the biggest secret of how saints and masters conquered everything and displayed feats of "miracles". Because this is the biggest secret of becoming one with everything and merging into everything and thus being that very thing also. These words from Babaji look just another set of instruction or just another method of sadhana if one is not connected. If there is connection then the deepness of every word can be linked to miracles and wonders of the mysteries of life. So when Babaji says, "I have come here to reveal the secret of ancient masters with you and empower you" he 100% means what he says.

  2. Namah Shivaya.. Giving answers to the mail asking "How to merge?"

    As per Babaji's teachings everything has a rhythm. Feel the rhythm of whatever you want to merge with. Bringing the bhaav and feel is very important. As one is able feel one's aura/consciousness/soul, feel the aura/consciousness/soul of the other person, thing, planet, element.. whatever one wants to merge with and then feel your aura/consciousness/soul and the aura/consciousness/soul of that thing merge into one. Bringing out the total feel works well with the merging process. Namah Shivaya!

  7. Namah Shivay Jacob !!

    Just like you I am also having some experience with Babaji so just want to share one of my latest experiences in Mysore.
    It was the last day of Shivir when Babaji had finished the satsang and coming down from stage to leave for the day same time I was standing at my seat, cherishing the grace and bliss of my great guru...just like that one thought came to my mind. Today is lastday of shivir I just want to say Bye-bye and thanks to Babaji, with that thought I have gone to the side way where Babaji's vehicle has to go...With bright smile he got in to the vehicle and close the door after that one big surprise for me !!...He has opened his window exactly when vehicle reached near to me...very lovingly with his cute smile...He acknowledge me and said "Namah Shivay".

    You are absolutely right...Babaji is beyond our imagination one just have keep aside his logic mind and physical self. We can experience his grace any time any where...Just want sing to lines for my Guru :
    Kaun kehta hai Shivanand aate nahi....Main to kehta hu hum hi bulate nahi :o)

  8. Hey Kapil! I don't know what to say here because exactly same incident happened with me during the last of ShivMahapuran in Mysore. All were running towards him while Babaji was leaving the stage and I thought to myself "It is going to be full rush there now and it is no use going near the stage area. Maybe I can see him in the car from far" Saying this I put on my shoes and was walking when suddenly the car came and passed right in front of me and I just lifted both my hands to him and he was lovingly glancing at me from inside the car. It was so rightly timed that we caught up each other just for those few precious seconds! Namah Shivaya..
