My Room Broke it's Silence for the First Time


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.. 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 day you are okay and one day you are ughh and one day you are in 7th heaven." i said "So what? i am atleast expressing everything honestly to you!" It quickly asked "How does it really matter when none of those expressions are consistent?" Now that was really something. I thought to myself "All this while i was thinking this room is my silent observer who sees me going through all colors and shades of life and today breaks it's silence with an unexpected jolt?" i paused, pondered, smiled and answered "Hmmm. Interesting. But I know it's not me but my mind that keeps changing seasons." To this it immediately said, "Sometimes your mind feels high and sometimes your mind feels low. When then will that "you" be consistently happy?" i replied, "When, like my master, i learn to stay between these both (high and low)." Then there was silence and i waited for the room to continue... but silence..........

That's when something really lit within and i knew now that it will not talk anymore as it had conveyed what it wanted to convey and returned to that very state of "between" that observes everything from that state. I admire my room that has a mastery in this. I smiled and turned to humbly glance at someone on this television in gratitude. Sam Bhaav and Drishta Bhaav arise out this state of neutrality, from which sprouts Har Haal Mein Khushi. My room is none other than my Guru Himself. Divine Love and Light. Description: https://static.xx.fbcdn.net/images/emoji.php/v9/t6c/1/16/2764.png<3 span="">

A beauty amidst beauty in Alwar


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

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 all my short-comings, limitations, sins, pettiness, shabbiness, stupidity, and loved me without judgement. When i raised an eye on someone, He taught to practice unconditional acceptance and love, which began seeping into me because He himself was accepting me with all qualities. He saw through the dark qualities in me, the qualities that may not be good when it comes to matching with the qualities of Light, but then where does Light look down upon darkness? It just shines. The more the darkness, the more the shine. He says that you cannot cure darkness with darkness and that is how His love that permeated light embraced my darkness and that is where darker areas began lighting up. He had to hug me wholly (not physically) including those abstracts and that is when my being including the darker parts of me also felt that love.  i only loved the good parts in me and hated the dark parts in me but He amazingly loved both the good and bad parts in me. If not that embrace of unconditional acceptance, what would happen to Sudamas? He embraces all His children with similar unconditional acceptance and that is where magic happens if that hug is felt. Why do people long for Baba? Because they have felt that Krishna's hug. Every Sudama has been wandering for love and acceptance and how can they resist that hug that makes them feel complete. He is Krishna to the world in many ways, but the real friendship is the Consciousness of that Krishna that hugs everything around because everything is a part of that consciousness.

For Him only the friendship matters, not the position, the caste, the religion, the creed, the color, the status, the quality, the talent, the ability, the disability, the power, the intelligence, the position, the looks, and all other endless lists.
This is what i have learnt since childhood as the quality of God. This was the quality of Lord Krishna when He physically walked on earth. This is the quality of all Gurus towards their disciples. This is the quality of my Guru towards His children. His embrace is all that matters, not the physical one that i speak of. His embrace that can reach anyone, if that anyone can go like Sudama, who went helplessly, weary and tired and the faith that his friend will help him pass through the uncertainties of the ever-changing world. Everything will change, everything that you can look around and think and feel and see around, all relations, all material, the body, the mind, the planet, the grass, the ant... everything is constantly changing, accept the stillness of that Light of God that permeates through Him. If, as Sudama sought his friend in dire need, one looks up for the Krishna, with intense need, it has to be presented to you in some way. This is how "that" Krishna works, for He still works. He is that consciousness, the unchangeable, and so will radiate the unchanged quality of His love and help. Such high state is that quality of Light, that it is hard to reach for petty Sudamas, but easier when that Light permeates through someone who can resonate at the Light of God, of high and pure level of consciousness. That pure light of God, of Krishna, still permeates to all Sudamas, totally unconditionally, through a few Masters of that resonance walking this planet. Our Baba provides the love and nourishment of Krishna for all Sudamas.

This is where He emphasizes on the bhajan - 

Kaun Kehta Hai Bhagwan Aate Nahi, Baba Kehte Hai Tum Toh Bulathe Nahi.
(Who says God does not come? Baba says you don't call Him with devotion)

Achyutam Keshavam Krishna Damodaram, Ram Narayanam Jaanaki Vallabham.
(praising Lord Krishna, the Light, with different names of Vishnu)

When Baba says call Him (Baba) and He will come, He means nothing else than calling Krishna, God, Allah, Wahe Guru, through Him, for He has become one with them. Guru tatva is always the mediator between God tatva and Human tatva. That is why Guru is called Light, the dispeller of darkness. Happy Friendship Day. Divine Love and Light.
