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

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. H ere is an effort  with this  beautiful  audio and video,  to re-live my childhood moments, re-live the writer's m

Om Guru Om (Song)

Namah Shivaya.... Today, March 26th is Babaji's birthday, a day which any siddha least bothers about because of the fact that he was never born and he never dies. Even then, this is the day that Baba incarnated on earth for the liberation of so many souls! Baba's  work with his devotees is always silent work, though there is so much communication through the consciousness, which may seldom be realized quickly, due to the struggles of the body, mind, ego formed out of karmic structures. Baba's love and patience with devotees is always cherished in so many forms, and this song is one of the smallest form of that cherishing. i must share that soon after i returned from the Sri Vidya havan in the ashram this month, i returned with lots of things necessary for growth and there was a good amount of release in various forms after that. At the same time there was an expression that seemed to burst forth in my mind in a form of words and as it flowed, i tried to give it a melody

Awareness

Image
Something that struck me today and there was no intention to write anything, but started with this thought and something flowed. Hope it helps.. Again, i am trying to share with the only intent that it might help someone. Reader's discretion advised :) As the coming time of ascension comes, few dynamic words - like awareness is going to be the need of the hour. It is no more the philosophical or just another simple word from the guru :)  As many paths, so many ways, so many methods, techniques, talks, debates, religions, forms, knowledge, and so so many ways that manifest unto us through infinite means and mediums. With the approach of the ascension period and spread of light, spirituality takes a new outlook altogether, something which had been predicted or anticipated hundreds and thousands of years ago by sages. The only difference that is seen around now with the new wave of spirituality is that the same words are spoken in much adaptation to the much advanced world, the sam

Guru Ashtakam

Image
Guru Ashtakam was written by Shri Adi Shankaracharya and tells about the necessity of the Guru and attaching our mind to the Lotus Feet of the Guru. Also, given are extracts from a lecture of Swami Vivekananda on the need of a spiritual Guru. A very beautiful video with a beautiful melody of Guru Ashtakam SHAREERAM SUROOPAM THATHA VAA KALATRAM, YASASCHARU CHITRAM DHANAM MERU TULYAM, MANASCHE NA LAGNAM GURO RANGHRI PADME, TATAH KIM, TATAH KIM, TATAH KIM, TATAH KIM..........1 Body is handsome, wife is attractive, fame spread far and wide, wealth enormous and stable like Mount Meru; but of what consequence are all these, if the mind is not riveted in devotion to the lotus feet of Guru? Really of what use is all this, what use, what use? KALATRAM DHANAM PUTRA POUTRAADI SARVAM, GRUHAM BHAANDAVAA SARVA METTADHI JAATAM, MANASCHE NA LAGNAM GURO RANGHRI PADME, TATAH KIM, TATAH KIM, TATAH KIM, TATAH KIM.........

Why I practice ShivYog

All such articles and articles of personal experiences are shared in this blog with the intention that it may help or assist or guide or strengthen or provide conviction to sadhaks or non-ShivYog sadhaks in some or the other way. Also, note that experiences, views, enthusiasm and convictions on such topics differs from person to person. There should kindly be no comparison made with individual experiences, views, enthusiasm and convictions. I have written before what can happen with sharing experiences.  With hopes that this article should be able to instigate the reader the same question as this article title and help one refresh the practice. There were many paths, many gurus, many methods. I went through many paths, met and tried to learn about many gurus, tried many methods and finally chose one! None of the other gurus, paths and methods were disappointing or non-appealing. Every guru had something or the other precious to teach, every path had its own charm and every method
