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

Once you make one your Guru, He will not leave you

I was looking at my prior post on FB "Once you make one your Guru, He will not leave you......" So true this is. i would rather put it as "Because you made one your Guru (in some lifetime) He has still not left you :) The bond of a Guru and disciple is beyond any imaginable relationship. Most of the time, this is understood by the just the mind due to the heavy curtains that the mind and sanskars put upon the soul. It is for so many lifetimes that this bond is created over. i know of few friends of mine, who never knew anything about Baba but suddenly had strange affinity towards Him and His teachings (just like i had in 2008).  Many of them do not even know who the person (Guru) is but still find themselves being guided. i have a couple of friends who are connected with Babaji more subtly. They have not attended shivirs, but they find His guiding light in their lives. He comes up in their dreams, guides them in various ways, comforts and heals. Some end up havin

Creating healthy boundaries

Disclaimer: My travels have given me immense opportunities to do sadhna, visit holy people and places, enjoy various cultures and lifestyles, learn the difficulties of life throughout, learn the diversities of spirituality, keenly observe other seekers on various paths and also observe seekers of my own path, meet many “old” connections, in the process observe and learn my own shortcomings, and most of what I write comes from exposure to people and diversities of spirituality and personal experiences I gain from them.  I try to always write only things that spring out of personal experiences because that is what gives me the authority and freedom of expression with confidence.  Whatever I read, if I wish to experience it, I immediately set out and almost all the time there are experiences related to it.  That makes things more convincing and the expressions set forth out of conviction.  Since every individual’s experiences are different, I keep the personal ones to myself and write m

The greatness of a Guru

Image
In total love, gratitude and reverence to Babaji, from whom i have learnt and am learning through His subtle presence as the guiding force, light and wisdom throughout my experiences on the journey back to light. A Guru is a teacher and guide who comes into your life only when you are ready, never otherwise, even though the reasons or circumstances in which a Guru appears in your life might seem totally away from this fact.  Only at a certain stage when the evolution of the soul is ripe enough for higher escalation, the Guru appears. An omnipresent Guru will know every aspect of the seekers much before the seeker even has seen or known the Guru. It is not important that it is known to all about this but if one knows it is much better for it enhances one's relationship with the Guru. Baba appeared in many people's life in strange ways and at even the most unexpected circumstances. That is the proof of the the Divine's love for you, for it arranges for a mediator to rea

Filling my cup first...

Image
It is true that as a human being we have qualities of compassion and the urge to help the creation which is the most beautiful quality given by the Creator. But, in order to help, we must first be filled in with the quality we wish to give. We must behold it first to give it to others. We are the cup placed in the creation of the Creator. The cup MUST be filled first to overflow and reach into the creation. To give anything out, be it love, hatred, peace, joy, fear, etc, i must first hold that quality fully, only then i can reach out to others. If i wish to give love, it cannot reach others until i am full with it and likewise if i wish to give fear and hatred to others, i cannot be giving it until i am myself first filled with it. So, to help others, i must help myself first. Sadhna on oneself first is what Baba always teaches. All are concerns of the world cannot be dealt with in the same coin. Babaji's teachings never teach eye for an eye and tooth for a toot
