Baba & Jesus Christ

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 level He was accepting me in whichever religion i was in, and yet another level He was indeed speaking from that level of great Oneness.

For me, who have been seeking only Oneness since my spiritual search began, Baba's such small gestures made a very strong impact on me. It makes me understand Christianity better and there are times when Christ makes me understand Baba better  Grateful to Baba and Christ. Namah Shivay! Alleluiah!

Makeover of Maa Saraswati's Idol

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 related to art and dance, the idol was a unbattled welcome. Every morning she was adorned with simple flowers at her feet by my family. When I visited her home this month for a few days, I stared at this idol that looked totally black but I was moved the way my family was treating Her. Then, two days later, as I was reading a book the passage ended on Maa Saraswati when I got to look again at that black idol. Something seemed very incomplete in Her. "Maa Saraswati looks pure and divine in white clothes" I thought "at least I can paint her saree white." At this thought I thought of buying paint when my eyes fell on a box of paint. When I picked it up, it was brand new and untouched and my mother also handed me a set of 5 brushes and the palette. I immediately recognized it as the colors I had purchased 3 years ago! I immediately took of my slippers and placing the idol in my lap began painting it. Was engrossed two days only with it and then as the work seemed to end in satisfaction, I realized that the paint was for Her only. I was amused at the thought of shopping for paint 3 years ago for an idol that had to mysteriously arrive 2 years ago and manifest into it's current sweet and magnificent look of Divinity. Pranams to Maa Saraswati and Her grace that prevails on earth...

All is One

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 fully follows their words and understand life's true purpose. But they never show, never show their disappointments when someone works against goodness or follow their work according to one's own whims and fancies. They also never show their happiness when someone embraces light truly and walks the path. They don't have to be told who does it and how; they simply know.

If you wish to attract their blessings and love, follow their teachings with purest of intentions. They know EVERYTHING. To make their incarnations worth it, they don't need your praise, your letters, your presence, your words, your actions, your assurances, your good deeds, your hard work, your money, your name, your time, your anything. They just need you to embrace light, embrace truth and just be a good human being living life completely and to the fullest. Fullest means living in total contentment and fullest potential and purpose of having taken this birth.

So, it doesn't matter what all you do and what all you don't do as far as we have understood what role you play as humans and how best we contribute towards making each other's life better, and smoother. Your truthfulness and purity impresses them. Impress as not in pride but impress only means a shower of more love and blessings from them. By aligning with purity and truth you align with them, for they are that. And when you align with them, you don't need special prayers or rituals, you simply attract their blessings and energies for now you are aligning with the finest souls on earth. These finest souls, the replicas of God, are the most simplest beings on earth, yet powerful because of their purity.


Live simple. Live pure. Live truthful. That's all it needs to become a disciple. Rest all comes later, and rest is not really important if your life is simple, pure and truthful. If not, then all the methods and ways taught by the masters are important practices. But if those practices do not make you simple, truthful and pure, then reassess. Something is surely wrong somewhere. The sadhnas of the Masters are pure methods to get us out of ignorance and darkness, but if this does not happen it's not in the sadhnas but in our approach towards them or our agendas behind doing those sadhnas or walking the path.

Check intentions for this builds purity. Check the mind's fickleness and cunningness for this builds truthfulness. Check nonattachment and pride for this builds simplicity. Check how anything and everything we do affects others for this builds unconditional qualities. Keeping a check on these is important for growth otherwise it is like bathing in dirty waters, when one every time bathes himself unconsciously with a belief that he is cleaning himself and unconsciously living in the glory of the arrogant feeling of being clean and pure. Hence, conscious awareness at all times is important. It is not by name or fame or actions or knowledge that we become disciples but it is by becoming a speck of that light that the Guru is. By living the true qualities of the Guru. By not having the urge to demonstrate this light to the world but by the very being in light, one's life becomes a demonstration of that speck of light of the Master to the world. Then, that light, pure light, begins enriching the world around 'effortlessly'. That is Jyot Se Jyot Jagao. That is the reflection of the Master. That is the reflection of Light. For me, that's what's being Baba's child.

Divine Love and Light.

Happy Diwali 2013



The explosives of love and joy
That remained inactive for lifetimes,
Let the explosive ignited by the Guru
Explode into the world this Diwali

In this festival of lights
Let the light of love scatter all around
To glitter and shimmer in every heart
Bringing peace and abundance to all

Here's wishing you full of light
From the lamp that lit this lamp
To your lamp lit with this message
Till the last lamp this wish can reach.

Jyot se Jyot Jagao, Sadguru Jyot se Jyot Jagao

HAPPY DIWALI wishes
with a beautiful music video
