The Master takes us to his Tapobhoomi

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

Recommended Books

If you like books, there are many books that I would recommend you to read.  I buy most of the books online since they are easy to order and most of the times cheaper than in book stores. Moreover you receive it at your doorstep. Books are something wonderful to keep since they are handy for reference anytime and can be your best buddy during travels or spiritual hunger.

Note: Prices vary according to paperback format. I am putting up the cheapest ones here.

Just ordered. Not yet read but has wonderful insights into rebirth.

The book that accompanied me throughout my journeys to the Goa shivir, Bangalore shivir and also two trips to Kanhangad. This book has everything a disciple must know about the kundalini and shaktipath. It includes many topics from initiation, symptoms, experiences, etc.

The book that brought me in siddha marg is the ever famous "Autobiography of a Yogi" of Paramahamsa Yogananda. Almost all spiritual seekers will have read this and a great book to possess for references and inspirations.

"Living with the Himalayan Masters" Swami Rama, one of the greatest yogis of the Himalayas who spent all his childhood and adolescene growing up with yogis in the Himalayas. Breath-taking incidents and stories of Yogis and siddhas have been recorded by Swamiji. A live account of what we cannot see in the Himalayas.

"At the eleventh hour" contains intrinsic details on Swami Ramas life and most of the mysteries of Swami Rama and unveiled here.  Pandit has written details of Swami's life and also written of details which Swamiji has not covered in his own book - Living with the Himalayan Masters"

"Touched by Fire" is a book that is so well written by Pandit Tigunait who was the direct disciple of Swami Rama. This book covers the journey of Pandit with Swami Rama containing many motivational and inspiring incidents of their lives.

"Spiritual conversations with Swami Muktananda" who was a direct disciple of Bhagwan Nitayananda. It was this book that brought me to Ganeshpuri and brought me to my Nityananda and thus later to my Shivananda!

Not read this one by Swami Muktananda but the name (Secret of the Siddhas) sounds interesting and I will be going for the same soon.

"From Finite to Infinite" sounds good as our Babaji uses this phrase often. I have not read this one but it seems to be a good one. Check it out.

"The Power of Now" is a beautiful book written by Eckhart Tolle on the beauty of living always in the present moment. I read this book few years back and recollect it is a good guide to live in the moment.

"The monk who sold his Ferrari" is a very interesting book written by Robin Sharma in the materialistic world but has gems in every page of the book that co-relates to the spiritual aspect of every being. It makes one connect and re-think on one's approach to life.

"Soul healings" written by Bruce Goldberg the master of Past Life Therapy. This is an excellent book written on accessing the subconscious mind and thus reaching lives of the past. It is very informative on the practices of Past Life Regression and also hypnotism.

"The Power of Your Subconscious Mind" by Josephy Murphy, the book I read years back and the book that transformed my life forever. This book was the major turning point for my spiritual transformation and journey till now. Gratitude to him!

Another major book "Manifest your destiny" by Dr. Wayne Dyer after which I learnt the art of manifestations and created a lot of things in my life. A wonderful book to cherish and keep.

    1.Sparsh(Touch) : In this technique,babaji touches sadhak and kripa is given.

    2.Vaani(Speech) : In this technique,babaji gives kripa by vaani.
