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

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

Holding Opinions About Others

Image
Holding opinions and criticizing others is most selfish living because it dictates what others should be doing so that i live a better life in the way i think it should be and not what i should be doing so that others can live better lives.  It's not just about Kejriwal or any politician, if you observe carefully, human race developed the tendency of criticizing anything and anyone around as long as life is there in them... that has become a habit, not even sparing saints and even friends and family. Firstly, noone even cares about what the opinion maker thinks or what opinion he or she holds about others. Neither have those opinions brought any changes in others, except having created more reactions in self and to the one projected. These are the very tendencies Babaji has been telling from day one to avoid because they simply attract consequences or karma. Not just for the fear or karma, but even what is the use of commenting on someone else or holding or expressing opinions

Saying NO with confidence

Image
Baba's teaching "Say NO with confidence."... is not saying NO when you are asked to do homework....lol... When your conscience is clear, there will be no problem saying NO with confidence. Be it alcohol, cigarettes, a gift, a 'lucrative' of fer, a compromise with your conscience, anything unethical, a proposal or an advice or suggestion that will instill greed, guilt or fear in you or anything that you feel not in line with your inner peace and conscience; the foot must be put down.. Train kids especially the difference between a right NO and a wrong NO.

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

Understanding Attachment

Image
These writings are my own insights and own point of view. Hence, it is closed to any debates or arguments, but am sharing it with the only intention that what i experience and share of life, that be useful in some way atleast to the reader. Hence, if you feel this could help in any way, please read on. We often talk about attachment and detachment, but how far are we experiencing it and living through it. Many agree to it's impending challenges in the birth and death cycle, but are not able to fully be through it or to live it practically. There are many reasons to it. By mere reading or agreeing will not reach to the core of uprooting the root causes of attachments. These understandings have to be allowed to seep deep within and allowed to be experimented in daily life so that they start bearing fruits. Detachment can be understood by living, by often reminding oneself of the temporary status of one's stay on earth as well as of others and our stay with them. Simul

Ik Onkar - Our Identity

Image
At a place where Babaji was offered to autograph His own photograph, Baba wrote His true identity ~ "Ik Onkar, Satnaam" meaning "God is One, His true name." A beautiful rendition of the entire of the Mool Mantra sung by Sikhs, which is the opening phrase of the "Guru Granth Sahib" - the first composition of Guru Nanak. If Baba's identify is that, what are we? We are one with Him. We are one with that One. We are One. Below is the entire script with it's English meaning along a beautiful video of this looped sacred chant. ik-oNkaar God is One sat naam His name is True kartaa purakh He is the Creator nirbha-o He is without fear nirvair He is inimical to none akaal moorat He never dies ajoonee He is beyond births and deaths saibhaN He is self illuminated gur parsaad He is realized by the kindness of the True Guru jap Repeat His Name aad sach jugaad sach He is True in the beginning, before the any
