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

My First experience with the Master

Image
Gurudev was conducting a healing program in Salisbury Park, Pune in 1998 and a friend coaxed me literally as i refused to go meet any Guru. Then he told me that the program was about healing karmic factors and that struck something in me, because i knew had some heavy karmic stuff in me. i was nonetheless looking for avenues to unload that heavy stuff, and then i thought why not go peep in. That is how i reached the event place for the event and i remember it was a 9 days program. 3 days Siddha healing, 3 days Shambhavi and 3 days Sri Vidya. i knew heads nor tails of these words and since i had decided to only peep in, i registered along with my friend for only the first event for 3 days and reached Pune. i eventually got to know that we had booked late and we had got the extra space and when i walked into the venue there was a huge crowd. Our seats were in the back, and were plastic chairs that seemed like a last-moment arrangement for the extras. i soon realized that it wasn't a

My Birthday Gift

Image
My birthday is in a few days. Never have i celebrated birthdays for the past decade for i fail to understand the glory of its celebration. But, my last birthday was meaningful and was the best birthday i had. i was blessed to have witnessed  many leelas of Baba, while had the opportune to be at closer vicinity with Him and one such experience i would like to share this. i was in the ashram last year this time happily working on the system and my birthday had approached and i as usual shut off my cell as the day began. Not a soul knew about this day and i was very happy about it. As noon approached, a desire suddenly erupted in my mind as to "how wonderful if i would get a glimpse of Baba today; it would make my day!" It was long since Baba had been down in the office and was missing Him too. Then an equally strong thought that quickly followed was Baba's words "Don't run behind the body." Then i thought why was i giving the physical meet so much impor

Makeover of Maa Saraswati's Idol

Image
A small cute incident of awe. Three years back while I was shopping in Big Bazaar I picked up a set of bottled colors, set of 5 paint brushes and a color mixing palette, all the while trying to understand why am I even buying it, but at th e same time being compelled to buy it. It remained in a box for two years and finally was picked by my sister and kept outside for another year. Also, two years ago, someone kept an idol of Maa Saraswati at the door of my sister's home doorstep. She immediately got it picked up from there and kept it somewhere far away only to find it in a day again at her doorstep. The idol was in perfect shape without deformities of any kind except that it was fully black and that made Her look not so beautiful. She looked more like Maa Kali than Maa Saraswati. Worried about this incident, my sister had called me at that time to ask about this to which I asked her to keep it as it seemed more of Maa's wish. Moreover, since our family is full of te

Karma of attachment & rebirth

Note: All  articles are more of personal writings and is written with the only intent of sharing with fellow travelers on the path and in totality reflects the author's personal views only. Just before leaving for another trip, i was just browsing through Facebook and was observing that for the past couple of days the topic on my page has mostly been on detachment, friends being worried about family members, posts being posted on Baba Nityanand's last words before samadhi "Maintain Vairagya (detachment) and Shudh Bhavana (pure intentions)" and also added were the new posts of Babaji's Malaysia shivir on "Art of Ascension" where so many revelations about birth and rebirth was beautifully explained by Babaji. At the same time, there were some posts on my profile page about how animals are reborn among human families and how beautiful our relationships with them are. It spoke of a child whose dog had died and she wrote an innocent letter to God askin

Enhancing Spiritual Practices

Image
All the below observations and suggestions are not mine. These are important lessons that i eventually learn from Babaji and share it here if it may help you.   Gratitude at Babaji's feet for this opportunity. Results should not be anticipated quickly. The more the karmic debts, the more the time it takes to clear. Sadhana becomes more effective when the basic 6 foundation teachings of Babaji are followed simultaneously. ( Click here to read about them) Keep a check on how you react because your reaction creates further karma. The more you cry, fret and fume, the more suffering at that moment and more the creation of sankaras thus amounting to more karmas. Moreover, during such low and negative moments the connection with the guru/divine gets more difficult. So be aware the moment you start getting low. Practice "har haal mein khushi" even if it looks impossible. Sincere repeated attempts are what makes you eligible for Guru kripa or the grac

...and I thought...

Just sharing my views in a different format so that it becomes interesting to read. Trying here to share what I thought before I met Babaji, which if looked upon carefully, has a message in every sentence; and that is my intention to convey through here.  The "I" used in this article is a representation of an individual. Download:        Medium size  (800 x 600)       Large size   (1024 x 768) Here I am in binding with the one truth that Babaji teaches, but before coming here I had some foolish thoughts and myths. Before coming here... I thought I would always be discriminated on religion, caste, creed, color, position and status. I thought I had to learn and read scriptures and prayers because it was enforced on me. I thought I had to compromise on ethical values to live in the world. I thought through books or stories that saints and pure people only lived in the past. I thought Christ's healing powers, miracles, unconditional love, forgiveness was only reserve

A day with a Yogi

Image
I would like to share with all ShivYog sadhaks about the little experiences of our travel to an ashram to meet a yogi whom I had met long before coming into ShivYog and who is a renunciate and who practices and teaches nothing and absolutely nothing but nonduality.  I share it with the hopes that you may like it and find all teachings similar to what our Babaji teaches us. As Babaji always reminds us "Sab santh ek math" and "Naam anek par sabka maalik ek" I take the liberty of putting up the article here. Namah Shivaya. On the auspicious day of Guru Purnima, me and my friend decided to meet a guru whom we had met long before coming into ShivYog.  A swami who looks after the ashram in Sogal, about 75 kms from where I stay in Belgaum. A person who does not make any disciples and prefers ta silent life in his ashram and farm. A yogi who wears only a lungi (a long piece of clothing around the waist that runs down the leg and can be folded up to the knees) and he

Living With Non-ShivYogis

Image
This article is for the sadhak who asked to write an article on how to deal with people who are non-ShivYog sadhaks, especially the people at home. Hoping that this article that reflects more of my personal experiences may help. These are only expressions of my views with an only intention to provide a fraction of Babaji's teachings and love, to whom I am ever grateful. It is very interesting for some and frustrating for some sadhaks who are now acquainted with living in a different world - a world of Babaji's love but at the same time also have to share the "old" world which they previously lived in and are no more comfortable in. In reality both are not two but the same physical world but nonphysically a spiritual and a nonspiritual person reside on two different planes of consciousness. I can write a bit on this because of my personal experiences in the journey of spirituality for as long as six years now and experiences after joining  ShivYog  more a year back. I
