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

The inside and outside confusions

These writings are my own insights and own point of view. Prompted to share certain beautiful aspects of the journey of life, that be useful in some way atleast to the reader. This article has been deliberately written in a very straight forward way, so that it only help one in having the correct approach to pilgrimage.  Hence, if you feel this could help in any way, please read on.   Someone asked me, "Why do you go to certain locations when everything is inside? Why external when everything is inside?" Me: Are you aware that your inside has the capacity to even generate food and liquid so that it can sustain itself like many evolved beings do? He: Yes, I know it. Me: Then why do you then eat and drink from outside? He:  Because I still have to reach that state. Me:  So till then would you stop eating and drinking? He:  Hmmmmm.... Me:  What we preach, we must first experience it. How could you preach that everything is inside when you have

Pardeshwar Linga in Mysore

The Linga before the consecration This article is being written with the intention of sharing some very good information about the work of the Guru through human hands. Such great tasks can only be established and put into place by the powers of a Guru. How silently yet powerfully the Divine and Guru work, which we were able to witness in this divine process of the consecration of the Paradalinga in the form of  rituals, gatherings, puja, music, havans, prayers, meditation, offerings, chants, and so many other things, done in order to bring that power within the human reach by transforming mercury into the highest possible form of the Divine! Words cannot describe everything and so i do not wish to go too much into the happenings or wonders that happened every now and then in these three days. In fact, they can be called miracles only when it seems too overwhelming for our minds - they are nothing but the way of the Divine - the most natural way the things are. Throughout th

Kanhangad Visit - Jan 2011

Last time we traveled to Kanhangad and stayed in the ashram for 3 days and meditated in the caves of Bade Baba (Baba Nityananda).      Out of the many feedbacks on the visit some requests were to let everyone know when such visits are being planned by ShivYog sadhaks. So, keeping that in mind, we are informing about the next planned 3-day visit to Kanhangad with a stay in the ashram itself  on January 2nd, 3rd & 4th, 2011 (Sun, Mon, Tue) How to reach: Kanhangad is in the border of Kerala/Karnataka and falls in Kerala State. Nearest airport/railway station/bus stand is Mangalore. From  Mangalore i t is about 70 kms and takes about an hour to two by bus/train. Almost all trains going to Kerala pass through Kanhangad station. You may check out for more info about trains on - You may come directly to Kanhangad ashram or if you wish to join us from Mangalore, we will all be  meeting in Mangalore by morning of Jan 2nd, Sunday  and we will leave for Kanhangad by

A day with a Yogi

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
