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

Amazing Grace

This song was written in the 17th century and it even today has the fragrance of the divine connection that Sir John Newton probably had at that time. This song always enchanted me when i listened to it all through my church days. Back then, only the melody pleased and even when sung, never knew the indepth meaning of it. Today, when the church and temple, Christ and Shiva, God and Guru are all one for me, this song also renders a different meaning for me.

More than a passion of wanting to sing this song, as i sung, i realized how similar our life stories are. How similar situations are. How similar this song also is for most of us, especially for those whom the Guru appeared at the time when one was getting lost.

The journey is weary. The journey is not easy. But our persistence and love and faith in the Master can make all the difference to the journey. Here is an effort with this beautiful audio and video,  to re-live my childhood moments, re-live the writer's moments and re-live the journey of yours and mine. Gratitude to Baba.




Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch (soul) like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
'Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
and Grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me.
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

When we've been here ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we've first begun.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch (soul) like me.  
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.
