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…

Giving and taking advice

Image
I was watching people coming to a holy person for infinite solutions for their infinite problems with the world they were miserably entangled with. One person came to him with folded hands and told him he had come seeking for an answer to the question that was bothering him. The holy man answered "No one in this world can give you an answer. Everybody can only give their opinion to that question but the answer lies within you and only you can find that answer."
Baba always said "Meditate on it" whenever someone went to Him for straight answers. No quick solutions were given. So true that we give our advise and suggestions to people, thinking we are helping. The advice, is something out of our own experience which need not be true for that person. A single situation can have 10 different meanings and 10 different experiences for 10 different people, and the same situation can have 10 different solutions, depending on so many factors of the individual. Giving free adv…

The silent energy drainers - ourselves

Image
Seekers on the path have many obstacles as the path to light is not an easy one.  Not easy because of the natural hurdles that one will come across.  But, most of them are self-created hurdles. Sadhna, seva, sankirtan all boost energies, cleanse the body and mind from negative clutter. Places of high energy vortex also cleanses and expands one's aura. Most seekers are very good at meditative practices and gain a lot of energy by following the Guru's path but unfortunately the biggest hurdle is sustaining those energies. Baba's teachings on non-judgement and criticism all point towards losing the energies that one gains with tapas or sadhna, seva, sankirtan. One of the biggest hurdle is loss of energy due to not being able to sustain energies. Shivirs are beautiful and even beautiful is the beautiful feeling of well being and clarity in thoughts and daily life activities after the shivir, but if one observes, this feeling subsides a few days after a shivir. What one has gai…

Baba & Jesus Christ

Image
For me, Baba and Jesus are not much different. They all teach from the same pool of Divinity. i remember this when i saw this photo of Baba in my cell that i had once clicked in the ashram because i saw that this photo was exactly looking like a picture of Jesus from another room. This picture of Jesus is from "the ascension of Jesus" when He rose from the dead and ascended along with His physical body in front of all present. Almost all pictures of Jesus pertaining to "jesus ascension" on google images resembles this image. Even the robe twist in both images can be noted in similarity.


Whenever Baba spoke to me about certain things, He often cited about Jesus Christ without any barriers of religious Gods or differentiation. He often spoke about Bible and wonders of Christ, which made my heart smile and put me at ease, not because He spoke of a Christian Jesus Christ, but because at one level He was putting to me that the essence of all teachings is one, on another …

Makeover of Maa Saraswati's Idol

Image
A small cute incident of awe. Three years back while I was shopping in Big Bazaar I picked up a set of bottled colors, set of 5 paint brushes and a color mixing palette, all the while trying to understand why am I even buying it, but at the same time being compelled to buy it. It remained in a box for two years and finally was picked by my sister and kept outside for another year.
Also, two years ago, someone kept an idol of Maa Saraswati at the door of my sister's home doorstep. She immediately got it picked up from there and kept it somewhere far away only to find it in a day again at her doorstep. The idol was in perfect shape without deformities of any kind except that it was fully black and that made Her look not so beautiful. She looked more like Maa Kali than Maa Saraswati. Worried about this incident, my sister had called me at that time to ask about this to which I asked her to keep it as it seemed more of Maa's wish. Moreover, since our family is full of teachers rela…

All is One

Image
All Masters take birth with just ONE common agenda. To light up an ignorant soul's life with truth and guide it towards light. Each Master has their own way of doing this.
But every Master is not fully understood and there are deviations from what they actually teach and what is understood and followed by each according to their own baggage of karmas and impressions.
But how graceful and patient are the Masters for they do not judge, nor do they look down upon any soul. They look upon every ignorance from a very high perspective that makes them more patient towards all.
But that should not be an excuse for us to remain ignorant and take "advantage" of their unconditional love. We have to do our very bit. What they do for humans is beyond repayment but their love and hard work can be at least acknowledged as a sign of true gratitude. That will come ONLY from understanding and following their teachings to the core.
You cannot even imagine the happiness they derive when a soul …

From the heart a few words flow tonight ~
Jo Bhi Mila, Jaisa Bhi Mila Tumko, Sada Diya Hi Hai Tumne Gurudev, Liya Hi Kya Hai Tumne... Jo Bhi Diya, Jaisa Bhi Diya Humne, Sada Uske Liye Kuch Liya Hai Tumse, Diya Hi Kya Hai Humne

Whatever you received, however you received, always You have only given Gurudev; what have you ever received.... Whatever we have given, however we have given, we have always taken something for it from You; what have we ever given....

Walk Unto Light...

Image
Baba lights the lamp Only to clear our damp
Leave all the blames Quit all the games
Quit all the talking Begin simply walking
Baba can't walk for us Baba will walk with us
Blessings will be blown The path will be shown
With teachings applied And love supplied
Will only light shine Of yours and mine
In the end light will stay Rest all will wither away ~jacob

The Shade Amongst Shades

Image
Found one of my old pic and while looking at it few words flowed, which i noted below in this text here and then looking at the words, some thought arose to make it more beautiful by adding something to the pic, and it was done. All just a creative expression to share with my friends...  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ In the journey of life filled with all shades, I watch through the window of my soul Where the me and mine all fades And just one shade I see as a whole.
Through landscapes of the earth I travel Through cries and laughters i walk Letting the mysteries of life unravel I wish to be silent; let life talk. 
In the journey, a shade covered my sight I realized it was the shade of my Master, Now the landscapes seems like a canvas  On which life's movie unwinds faster.
Every destination is only a step to the Divine, An extra little revealed at every station i realize in this infinite journey of mine Every step has become my destination....... ~jacob

Prayers to Brahma, Vishnu, Maheshwara

Image
Had a crazy thought, but thought it would be crazier not to express than to avoid the thought :D

Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh. Creation, Sustenance, Destruction. Past, Present, Future. i was just pondering on how we experience the three only in struggles in the human form. Struggling during birth, struggling with existence, and struggling at the time of death.

People of light, after the light dawns into their lives, realize that one has happened (birth), the second is at hand (existence) and the third (death) is yet to come. What is right now at hand is existence. But that also goes in struggle because of the urges in sustaining, holding on to, grabbing, seizing, possessing, accumulating, planning, maintenance, safeguarding, investing, producing humans, etc, etc, which are all various expressions of the individual struggling ONLY to sustain itself.

Was thinking that even in simplest of things in life, the three are always involved. Unless a perfect samadhi stage is reached, even a simple thing…

The greatness of a Guru

Image
In total love, gratitude and reverence to Babaji, from whom i have learnt and am learning through His subtle presence as the guiding force, light and wisdom throughout my experiences on the journey back to light.

A Guru is a teacher and guide who comes into your life only when you are ready, never otherwise, even though the reasons or circumstances in which a Guru appears in your life might seem totally away from this fact.  Only at a certain stage when the evolution of the soul is ripe enough for higher escalation, the Guru appears. An omnipresent Guru will know every aspect of the seekers much before the seeker even has seen or known the Guru. It is not important that it is known to all about this but if one knows it is much better for it enhances one's relationship with the Guru.

Baba appeared in many people's life in strange ways and at even the most unexpected circumstances. That is the proof of the the Divine's love for you, for it arranges for a mediator to reach you …

Filling my cup first...

Image
It is true that as a human being we have qualities of compassion and the urge to help the creation which is the most beautiful quality given by the Creator. But, in order to help, we must first be filled in with the quality we wish to give. We must behold it first to give it to others. We are the cup placed in the creation of the Creator. The cup MUST be filled first to overflow and reach into the creation. To give anything out, be it love, hatred, peace, joy, fear, etc, i must first hold that quality fully, only then i can reach out to others. If i wish to give love, it cannot reach others until i am full with it and likewise if i wish to give fear and hatred to others, i cannot be giving it until i am myself first filled with it. So, to help others, i must help myself first.
Sadhna on oneself first is what Baba always teaches. All are concerns of the world cannot be dealt with in the same coin. Babaji's teachings never teach eye for an eye and tooth for a tooth. Hatred …

Any Lie Can Become Your Truth

Image
"If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth." ~ Joseph Goebbels.
An alarming statement to what can happen with negative thinking. First, a negative idea looks very natural and okay. When repeated often, we will not even know when it has become a part of us. So also does a lie. How many times has it happened that lies are casually told in daily life, thinking it is okay, and sometimes even in the name of Shudh Bhavna. We can say our intention was good and speak a lie or do a negative thing that we later justify under pure intentions.... unaware of the dangerous pattern it is creating, each time digging the nail of the lie deeper into the psyche. It would not be a surprise to one day notice how effortlessly the lie has become a truth and one even starts acting or speaking in that way without even knowing. Others will notice it but not you because by now it has become a totally unconscious act. The Guru sees this. God sees this. Your consciousness sees t…

Outcomes of Unconditional Love

Image
I often wonder, how can someone continuously pray for others? For other's well being, for people's spiritual growth, for ascension of the restless souls, for welfare of all communities, for nature.. How can one pray day and night only for others? Can only wonder mouth open, for it's not easy until one has unconditional love, that is, wishing for highest good of others without personal agendas. Our Baba does it _/\_

Reading Secrets for Seekers

Image
Books written by great Masters are not mere recordings. You can say they are literally the transfer of their consciousness into their works. A simple man writes for communicating a certain piece or knowledge or information but an adept transfers their knowledge or information as it is even though they may be writing with their hands. 
What gets recorded is the subtle property of that information. It not necessarily is transferred into the reader but is transferred in the subtle form of the writing or recordings or print, whatever the medium looks to be. The transfer only happens in subtlety when another subtle form becomes receptive to it which lie in the writings. The receptive subtle form of the reader depends on his/her level of awareness of consciousness and his/her keenness and intention of 'knowing'. The gross form of the reader is the eyes that read it, the brain that interprets it and the mind that gives sense to it. Just like the mind's giving meaning to it depends…
