The Master takes us to his Tapobhoomi

Image
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

Giving and taking advice

Image
I was watching people coming to a holy person for infinite solutions for their infinite problems with the world they were miserably entangled with. One person came to him with folded hands and told him he had come seeking for an answer to the question that was bothering him. The holy man answered "No one in this world can give you an answer. Everybody can only give their opinion to that question but the answer lies within you and only you can find that answer." Baba always said "Meditate on it" whenever someone went to Him for straight answers. No quick solutions were given. So true that we give our advise and suggestions to people, thinking we are helping. The advice, is something out of our own experience which need not be true for that person. A single situation can have 10 different meanings and 10 different experiences for 10 different people, and the same situation can have 10 different solutions, depending on so many factors of the individual.

The silent energy drainers - ourselves

Image
Seekers on the path have many obstacles as the path to light is not an easy one.  Not easy because of the natural hurdles that one will come across.  But, most of them are self-created hurdles. Sadhna, seva, sankirtan all boost energies, cleanse the body and mind from negative clutter. Places of high energy vortex also cleanses and expands one's aura. Most seekers are very good at meditative practices and gain a lot of energy by following the Guru's path but unfortunately the biggest hurdle is sustaining those energies. Baba's teachings on non-judgement and criticism all point towards losing the energies that one gains with tapas or sadhna, seva, sankirtan. One of the biggest hurdle is loss of energy due to not being able to sustain energies. Shivirs are beautiful and even beautiful is the beautiful feeling of well being and clarity in thoughts and daily life activities after the shivir, but if one observes, this feeling subsides a few days after a shivir. What one has ga

Baba & Jesus Christ

Image
For me, Baba and Jesus are not much different. They all teach from the same pool of Divinity. i remember this when i saw this photo of Baba in my cell that i had once clicked in the ashram because i saw that this photo was exactly looking like a picture of Jesus from another room. This picture of Jesus is from "the ascension of Jesus" when He rose from the dead and ascended along with His physical body in front of all present. Almost all pictures of Jesus pertaining to "jesus ascension" on google images resembles this image. Even the robe twist in both images can be noted in similarity. Whenever Baba spoke to me about certain things, He often cited about Jesus Christ without any barriers of religious Gods or differentiation. He often spoke about Bible and wonders of Christ, which made my heart smile and put me at ease, not because He spoke of a Christian Jesus Christ, but because at one level He was putting to me that the essence of all teachings is one

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

All is One

All Masters take birth with just ONE common agenda. To light up an ignorant soul's life with truth and guide it towards light. Each Master has their own way of doing this. But every Master is not fully understood and there are deviations from what they actually teach and what is understood and followed by each according to their own baggage of karmas and impressions. But how graceful and patient are the Masters for they do not judge, nor do they look down upon any soul. They look upon every ignorance from a very high perspective that makes them more patient towards all. But that should not be an excuse for us to remain ignorant and take "advantage" of their unconditional love. We have to do our very bit. What they do for humans is beyond repayment but their love and hard work can be at least acknowledged as a sign of true gratitude. That will come ONLY from understanding and following their teachings to the core. You cannot even imagine the happine
