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…

You are the Miracle

Image
As Baba says everything in nature itself is a miracle if looked at carefully as to how intrinsically each and everything in the Universe functions. It is amazing to even ponder on the "automatic" functions of even the smallest thing invisible to us to the visible gross forms to the largest things hidden to our eyes and minds, every bit is a miracle. 

This automatic mode is what makes us all part of that miracle. This picture reminded me today how even you and me are miracles. The baby and all it's "automatic" functions are the flow with life, the surrender. i realize that babies are wholesome miracles because they are fully on auto-pilot until they learn something externally. Slowly the miraculous part part of the human starts shrinking once it's own identity and ideas are generated. However, that miraculous quality, though shrunk in quantity and quality, can never completely be eradicated for i sense that little flame is the essence of the soul. It just get…

My Room Broke it's Silence for the First Time

My Room Breaks it's Silence!

Image
Ha ha.. Some beautiful blends to share today. I have no dear friends that i share things about or chat or phone or talk but whenever feel the urge to, my blogs and facebook are like my diaries through which i share it with the world, which for me represents that "sharing wala friend". But to share further, call me crazy if that pleases you, i converse often with my room:D.. Almost loudly whenever i come back to it as it seems the only being that waits for me..lol. The moment i enter it, i say "hi room." and more than often i have seen it light up that lights me up too. So, as usual, today i enter and say hi and continue my standard template "today was _______." the one thing that changed everyday was the word that filled that blank - "wonderful, exciting, boring, okay, ughhh, etc, etc." Today i think the room wanted to break the monotony of being the silent listener and it quickly retorted "One day you are high and one day you are low, one …

A beauty amidst beauty in Alwar

Image
When i once visit the Alwar Goushala, the entire area is full of beauty, but then amidst all the beauty i spotted another little beautiful piece of art lying in the centre of the open grassland. This is not very big; if you pick up this Kamdhenu cow, it will fit easily in both your palms, but found it very beautiful.

Happy Friendship Day

Image
Friendship day i find a great significance in my life and in other's... Who can be your best friend, beyond all the mortal ones. Who can be a true friend who will not leave you come what may. We see in our lives all kinds of friends who have walked in and out of life. Many are those who have helped, supported, cherished, loved, walked with us and still do. Gratitude to all my such dear friends who have always been there. But at the same time, i can't resist putting forth how still our mortal friends can walk with us not forever and not in the same unwavering spirit, as all mortal beings have limitations. At such a state, my overwhelming gratitude goes to my best friend and guide - Baba, who even being of the stature of Lord Krishna picked this petty Sudama. i certainly am the penniless, having literally nothing, but He acknowledged nothing but my love and picked me up in His arms and gave me shelter and food and love and most of all accepted me the very way i am inclusive of al…

One Path One Focus

Image
The following is the flow of my personal thoughts and words. Readers to use their own discretion.

A sadhak friend from Pune sent a note the other day to share and it said "Stick to one Guru" which had interesting notes and i thought it should be shared with all since this topic is not just of today but even scriptures and great Masters have emphasized the importance of having one-pointedness in a path or Guru.
This has been practiced since eons, even in those days of those eras that did not have thousands of paths and Gurus as it is now in the Kaliyuga. Today, the word Guru and the real meaning of the teacher is subject to various tests and challenges and also put at the mercy of those who play the role of a Guru out of different intentions and vested interests. Thus, in today's world everything is readily available, so also a Guru.
My views about this are very strong when it comes to a Guru, who has to be the one who has walked a certain path, achieved success in establish…

Ascension Challenges - Churning

Image
Everything written is my own personal views. What i am learning, i am sharing for the benefit of those who may find things confusing. Hence, reader's discretion advised.

Since eons there has always been the battle between the light and the dark. From early mythology to present day scenarios all depict the same. But one thing what the mythology and the deeper secrets of the ancient masters reveal is how darkness is not completely a separate entity but more of the reflection of oneself. Mass consciousness reflects back it's own inner darkness as a mass evil outside. Thus, the most challenging part for a seeker is the battle with one's own darkness. When our own light becomes weak to battle our own darkness, the Guru's powerful light enters to assist our very own light. Read on.
Our darkness shows up when the light wants us to do something and we resistance due to our own old conditionings, habits, patterns, and comfort zones. Resistance to receive love and to give love, to…

Divine Touches of Ishan bhaiya

Image
All written are my own views and not influenced by anything other than the flow of my feelings and emotions. Reader's discretion suggested.
In whatever i have been able to write till now here on this blog with Babaji's grace, Acharya Ishan Shivanand, as he is known, has not been much of a mention. It is so, much because Ishan ji has always kept a low profile on the media, inspite of responsibly shouldering Babaji's mission, inspite of his contribution to the world by conducting independent shivirs and his other activities of serving the world.
Ishan bhaiya, as i address him, because though being in his twenties and looking a kid amongst the mass seekers of ShivYog who are from all ages, he still commands a higher evolved status in his spiritual evolution. Being born to a saint of the lineage of Siddhas, Avdhoot Baba Shivanand, it is but obvious of the stature of being a rishi putra. i always hesitated writing about him because his own energy of working from the background wa…
