The Master takes us to his Tapobhoomi

Image
Beautiful 3 days spent in the land of Rajasthan with the Master. Every nook and corner we travelled in Lalsot had posters of the shivir at every locations including taxis and markets. One thing i was surprised with was the heights of hospitality in a world where one thinks of so many excuses or shrinks away to even offer someone a glass of water or tea and here are the Rajasthanis, who go beyond anything to serve their guests.All the while i was thinking that the home next to the venue, where we ate food, was a place arranged by people for us as done in other locations we travel to. To my surprise while we sat on the ground and ate our food in the huge compound of this home, i saw many new people walking into this compound inside which sat ladies of the house making rotis. When people walked in, they were asked to sit, paper plates were laid and food was served immediately. The lady making rotis asked all those seated continuously whether they wanted rotis. If it was a yes, she would …

The inside and outside confusions

These writings are my own insights and own point of view. Prompted to share certain beautiful aspects of the journey of life, that be useful in some way atleast to the reader. This article has been deliberately written in a very straight forward way, so that it only help one in having the correct approach to pilgrimage. Hence, if you feel this could help in any way, please read on.  

Someone asked me, "Why do you go to certain locations when everything is inside? Why external when everything is inside?"
Me: Are you aware that your inside has the capacity to even generate food and liquid so that it can sustain itself like many evolved beings do?
He: Yes, I know it.
Me: Then why do you then eat and drink from outside?
He: Because I still have to reach that state.
Me: So till then would you stop eating and drinking?
He: Hmmmmm....
Me: What we preach, we must first experience it. How could you preach that everything is inside when you have not really experienced it? Do you do your puja …

Understanding Attachment

These writings are my own insights and own point of view. Hence, it is closed to any debates or arguments, but am sharing it with the only intention that what i experience and share of life, that be useful in some way atleast to the reader. Hence, if you feel this could help in any way, please read on.
We often talk about attachment and detachment, but how far are we experiencing it and living through it. Many agree to it's impending challenges in the birth and death cycle, but are not able to fully be through it or to live it practically. There are many reasons to it. By mere reading or agreeing will not reach to the core of uprooting the root causes of attachments. These understandings have to be allowed to seep deep within and allowed to be experimented in daily life so that they start bearing fruits.
Detachment can be understood by living, by often reminding oneself of the temporary status of one's stay on earth as well as of others and our stay with them. Simultaneously s…

Ik Onkar - Our Identity

Image
At a place where Babaji was offered to autograph His own photograph, Baba wrote His true identity ~ "Ik Onkar, Satnaam" meaning "God is One, His true name."

A beautiful rendition of the entire of the Mool Mantra sung by Sikhs, which is the opening phrase of the "Guru Granth Sahib" - the first composition of Guru Nanak.

If Baba's identify is that, what are we?
We are one with Him. We are one with that One. We are One.

Below is the entire script with it's English meaning
along a beautiful video of this looped sacred chant.

Creating healthy boundaries

Image
Disclaimer: My travels have given me immense opportunities to do sadhna, visit holy people and places, enjoy various cultures and lifestyles, learn the difficulties of life throughout, learn the diversities of spirituality, keenly observe other seekers on various paths and also observe seekers of my own path, meet many “old” connections, in the process observe and learn my own shortcomings, and most of what I write comes from exposure to people and diversities of spirituality and personal experiences I gain from them.  I try to always write only things that spring out of personal experiences because that is what gives me the authority and freedom of expression with confidence.  Whatever I read, if I wish to experience it, I immediately set out and almost all the time there are experiences related to it.  That makes things more convincing and the expressions set forth out of conviction.  Since every individual’s experiences are different, I keep the personal ones to myself and write mo…

Knowing Your Soul Agenda

Image
Many say "I don't know why i am here for, i do not know my purpose." Well, whether you know it or not, your ultimate purpose is just the same... to grab the opportunity to use this human lifetime to cut out from the cycle of birth and deaththat has kept you in spin for millions of years. It is rare that a human being is awakened to this fact. This can be done by a Guru and the Guru arrives only when one's heavy karmic structure is so weakened that it can grasp this fact. The rest remain in ignorance. That is why even if you try your best to convince people just like that noone will be interested in these details, some not even wanting to believe they had a life before and will have another one if they don't skip out of this strong vicious cycle. They may call themselves atheists or modern or wise or whatever, but all these are just the reasons for being stuck in the cycle due to karmic baggage. Hence, if one is even aware of this fact that one has to work towards…

Fear and Greed trap

Image
In my travels two of the major things that I have seen been the basic content in spiritual activities - greed and fear. Baba had explained in one of the shivirs how man approaches God out of two basic - greed or fear.Greed because one wants something or the other from God. Fear because he fears that if he does not do this or that, God will punish him. I have grew up in this environment where fear is instilled right from beginning by priests and caretakers of religion that God will put you in hell if you do this or don't do that. I went to church most of the time out of fear. I feared missing a Sunday mass because then for me hell would break loose as God was keeping a record of how many times I went to church and how many times not. God wanted me to be a good boy and thus even the good I did was out of pressure or fear. If I did something wrong people did not wait to pounce on me and instill guilt and I would live in guilt and fear of having disobeyed God. Not just me almost every…
