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

Diabetes & Food - The solution

With gratitude Babaji and to Shruti Seth for this very informative guest article.

Diabetes – The Major Reasons And The Cure.
(Delhi Shivyog Shivir 2011)

In Delhi shivir (Jan 2011), a new medical research was undertaken by Dr. Chaudhary and his team with Babaji’s consent. This time the focus of research was on diabetes. India has the most number of diabetic patients. The study goes like this - Sample size of 100 people were taken divided into 4 sub samples – 25 people who are diabetic and non shivyogis, 25 people who are healthy shivyogis, 25 people who are diabetic and taking regular medicines (shivyogi) and the fourth one 25 people who are diabetic and not taking medicines and handling it only by diet control and other methods (shivyogis).

The blood samples of these groups were taken on the first day of shivir and 8th day of shivir. This study will continue for 6 months. Babaji in mass healing requested only those people to come forward who are committed that they will practice shivyog as the blood samples will be taken again (as the duration of the study is 6 months). This study will continue in Mumbai shivir as well. The result as expected was really positive. 66% diabetic patients showed significant improvement in their condition. 

Babaji in one of the sessions very lovingly explained the reasons behind diabetes and why it is more prevalent in India. The emotions of jealousy and judging others too much are the major emotional reasons behind the same. Other than this, important factor is food habits of Indians and lack of sleep.

Babaji explained all this again with great humor. He said in India the thing is the families are closely knit. He told that one of the sadhaks said that if we invite our close family members, the number goes upto 250 or so (4-5 real brother sisters, their spouses, their kids, their kid’s spouses, their spouses family, etc, etc). When you meet and you see what all they have, what all have others achieved in their lives, then the emotion of jealousy arises. Babaji said “A woman came to me, who was worried that there was a stagnancy in her growth.  I asked here what happened. She said 'We have Mercedes car but my brothers-in-law have BMW. My husband gives lot of money to his sisters and we are not growing." I asked here, "Do you get sleep at night?' She said, "No Babaji.' I then asked her, 'You must surely be having diabetes.' She said, 'Yes Babaji.'” :)

Dr. Chaudhary also mentioned that lack of sleep too is one of the reasons behind it. So Babaji to this responded to do Sri Vidya Sadhna before sleeping, to read the golden book and say to yourself repeatedly "I REWARD MY SELF WITH DEEP AND SOUND SLEEP" (say this with feeling and soon you will feel that you are going in that deep sleep) and then sleep. This way you will be in deep relaxation and your higher bodies will be in higher dimensions when you sleep.

The more you look at other people and get jealous you are inviting diabetes for you. (comes Babaji’s one of the favorite dialogues “uski kameez meri kameez se safed kaise”) Everybody gets things according to their karma (Babaji says “usda karm ude naal, te mera karm mere naal”). He also explained that this emotion of jealousy is unconsciously put into us from childhood. From the very beginning parents put pressure on their children to come first in the class. Now there are 40 students in the class, all cant come first. If the child has not come first, he/she looks at the other child who came first and feels jealous. Instead of focusing on your self and studying, the focus is uske mere se zyaada marks na aa jaye. Earlier the exams used to happen annually so one time jealousy in year. Now a unit test every week. “Why don’t we teach our children to set targets such as - I'll bring 95%. Why coming first in the class is the target?” This unconsciously-fed behavior grows. Solution to this obviously is purify your self with meditation, FOCUS on SELF and Back to basics – TUM CHAHTE KYA HO?

Now coming to the food habits. He explained by example. There is a car. The petrol tank is full with petrol. I drive that car for 1 km and again go to the petrol pump to refill it. What will happen – the petrol will overflow. If it will not drop out of the car then it will overflow inside and spoil the seats and other parts of the car. This is what we do with our bodies. We eat and stuff our stomach. No physical movement, no work and again eat and overflow our stomach with food. Stomach is a small organ. Half of it is needed to be filled with food, one fourth with water and one fourth with air. Whenever food comes in front of you always ask “have I earned this food?” “Have I done the physical exercise, praan kriyas and sadhna today to earn it?” (by earning it means through physical efforts and not monetarily earning it). Babaji said that in the breakfast break they brought bread pakora for me to eat and he did not eat that. Subah se kiya hi kya hai (what have I done since morning), I am  sitting here. In order to earn a bread pakora I need to take 6 to 7 rounds of this hall.

Another problem which is specific to Indians – the Indian ladies (mothers and wives), their aim seems to make their family eat. “O ji aadhi roti aur kha lo”. (Have another half bread) Yahan pet (stomach) already overflow ho raha hai and they want you to eat more. Secondly, we are too attached to the cooked food and there is too much variety in food.  He specifically said eat well but don’t add too much of variety in one meal. If you are eating subzi and roti, don’t eat rice with it. If you are having daal and rice, don’t add roti to it. This will improve digestion. When he was in ashram, there used to be three sessions of praan kriyas and meditation. There was no concept of breakfast. If at all he had to eat he had fruits. Lunch was around 12 noon and last meal of the day around 5 pm.

In Tatva shudhi (CD available in divine shop), Babaji explained that “it is your belief system that cooked food is good. Why don’t you create a new belief system that amrit bhojan is good for you.” If one eats light and easy to digest food, then less energy is consumed in digestion, digestion improves and it gets easier to go in deep dhyaan.  Babaji also added that if you want to have tea, have Jasmine tea once a day.
