Where Art Thou My Lord?!   Leave a comment

Prayers, religious rituals and rites, austerities, fasting… all these are of no use unless the mind is tamed and held in proper control. They’re all just the means to an end, the end which is a new beginning of our life, the second birth. We have been clinging ourselves to the means and have forgotten the end long back. One has to discard the means after reaching the goal. Those means can be preserved and passed on to those who lack them or don’t know about them at all. But the sad thing is, all those means to the great end have been held in hostage by some megalomaniac sections of the society. They never reach the goal nor allow anyone to aim for the goal!

God wants us to live in Him and make Him live in ourselves. Then, there arises no need to pray to Him frantically. What’s the need of prayer when the one who prays and the one prayed are one and only? What’s the need of searching for happiness all around when you’re one with the happiness itself? What’s the need for you to be avaricious of gold and diamonds when you yourself are pure gold and an ever luminous diamond?

It’s God’s wish, everyone of us reach that stage where there’s no need for begging Him through intense prayers, rather, He wants us to be the masters of our own selves with His permanent abode firmly established in the core of our hearts. This is the ultimate state where there’s no need to communicate with God with any sound or with the chanting of any sacred mantra or with any prayer resorting to intense austerities. Where’s the need for you to resort to all these when you’re in constant communion with the ever resplendent Lord Almighty? This state is nothing but ‘Advaita’ (Monism or Non-dualism) where there is no need to communicate with Him with any word or sound and no need for searching for Him in any internal or external object. There’s only one sacred sound out of which all the sounds are manifested and there’s only one ‘eternally formless one’, omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent, by / through whom all the forms and shapes are manifested.

Reaching Him and being one with Him is so easy and so simple provided we are simple and not hardened by the external influences. Not become impure by our attachment to the ego, selfishness and other such enemies.

The more outward we go for peace and happiness, the more distressed we end up. The real happiness and peace is just deep inside us. The more you delve deeper, the greater will be your joy, peace and bliss!

Believe me, this is out of my own experience, the more we pray to God to have His grace and blessings, the more distant He goes from us, the more we look for Him, the more obscure He becomes, the more we search for Him either inside or outside, the more He evades us!

He just wants us to own Him, to feel Him as being One with us and to live in Him and let Him live in us forever and ever!

How merciful is the Lord Almighty!!!

God is nothing but Love… You love Him by loving one and all… You get to know Him by knowning yourself… You live in Him by letting Him live in you…!!!

ॐ नमः शिवाय l

अल्लाह मालिक l

सब का मालिक एक l

God is One & Only One! He is that ‘Eternally Formless One’ manifested in myriad forms!

The ‘All Pervasive and Complete One’, to whom I pay my heartfelt obeisances…

Is Saibaba really a god?   2 comments

abcdSome thingummy claims Saibaba (of Shirdi) is no god and exhorts all not to worship Him… that foolish guy doesn’t know that Saibaba never claimed Himself to be a god or godman and he never hankered after solemn prayers from His followers and devotees. He lived a life of total simplicity, modesty, restraint and integrity with a complete down to earth personality.

image001He is a great sage, seer, mystic, healer, philosopher, spiritual master and social reformer and above all ‘the most graceful and the most benevolent beggar (fakeer)’, who always begged for the sins of his loved ones just to absolve them of all their sins and the consequent divine retributions as per the ‘universal cosmic law of karma’.

Saibaba may not be a god but He goes beyond all the realm(s) of god and godhood. He is a perfect form of LOVE, which is beyond the limits of ordinary human understanding, but strikingly within everyone’s (for that matter, every creature’s) shortest reach to be felt and experienced!

Saibaba was/is never a physical form, nor even a subtle form. He is the ‘Universal Soul’ and the ‘COSMOS’ which permeates all through the universe, both visible and invisible; palpable and impalpable.

Saibaba is Sarva vyaapi and Sarvaantaryaami which means He is all pervasive and not bound by any restrictions or constrictions of time, space and causation. He is neither male nor female and both at the same time; He doesn’t have a beginning nor an end and nor is He in the middle; He is in all and all are in Him, He is in me, you and in all including in that thingummy!

So now tell me, who is worshiping whom?

Praying to Saibaba is nothing but praying and invoking ‘the universal cosmic soul & the super consciousness’ which has been there inside all of us including in that thingummy since time eternal!

Sometimes some fools accidentally and surprisingly be a strong reason in the revelation of the ‘eternal truth’ in their own peculiar and ironical ways though they themselves are not aware of it!

I feel this small bitter episode is just a serendipitous one that prompts us to delve more into the Sai tattva, the essence of Sai!

Rajadhiraja Yogiraja Parabrahma Satchidananda Samartha Sadguru Shri Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai!!!

The Truth   1 comment

the-truth‘Truth’ is always harsh and bitter, and can be sweet for those who accept it wholeheartedly. There are some fools amidst us who have been taking shelter under ‘falsehood’ for ages in utter disregard to ‘the all mighty truth’. Those hard core morons will definitely have to pay the price sooner or later for their historical blunders of non-compliance with the truth which is eternally supreme and permeates all through the universe going beyond time and keeping a constant watch on all our thoughts, words and deeds.

Swami Vivekananda, the Universal Cosmic Soul and the Greatest Spiritual Master   1 comment

Swami VivekanandaLet’s pay our heartfelt reverence and homage to the great Soul who rekindled the spiritual, intellectual and moral consciousness of India and the World, raised the drooping spirits to unimaginable heights with his reinvigorating words, the greatest master who proclaimed with trumpet voice- “Expansion is life and contraction is death; Strength is life and weakness is death”. Hope we all emulate the noble traits of the greatest son of the soil. Happy Youth Day to All those who always carry the YOUTH in their being, and strive for the uplifting of the intellectual, moral and spiritual consciousness of the world.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014 TO ALL   Leave a comment

Happy New Year2014The new year day, the most crucial day for all of us together. A day to take stock of the various events, incidents; thoughts, words and deeds committed by us due to various motives and causes, both positive and negative. It’s a perfect day to plan for building the monuments of our future with the lessons of foundations learnt in our past. Adieu 2013 and Welcome 2014! Thanks a lot 2013 for everything mixed, and which I hope pave the way for a more meaningful and enlightening year 2014.

New Year is not about changing the Dates but Direction;
It’s not about changing the Calendar but Commitment;
It’s not about changing the Actions but Attitude;
It’s not about changing the Fruit but Faith, Force and Focus!
May you Commit and Create the Best New Year ever!!

Here is beautiful NEW YEAR MESSAGE by the Poojya Guruji Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.

abstract-imageHe who sacrificed his life for giving a new lease of life on the earth; shed His blood for infusing the blood of love and affection into the cold blooded hearts; animated the callous, insensitive and inhuman world with His words of wisdom, love and compassion. Jesus the Redeemer, hope His blessings are for all of us to make this beautiful earth more beautiful, lovely, pure and peaceful! Merry Christmas to All!!

Annam Parabrahma Swaroopam   Leave a comment

Annam1

Annam3Please don’t waste food. Wasting food is the biggest sacrilege on the earth. “Annam Parabrahma Swaroopam” (food is equated with the LORD ALMIGHTY). Sharing is expansion and hiding is contraction. Expansion is life and contraction is death. We have to live the life which is full of love, affection and compassion. God loves those who help the needy and feed the starving. It’s a sin taking excess food when our fellow companions on this journey earth are dying of/for food. Pure love reflects in sharing and that love is God/ddess Himself/Herself. We have to spread love by sharing food among the hungry and starving as love can never be hoarded. The more we spread our love the more expanded will be our consciousness; and the lesser we spread our love the more limited, restricted and narrower would be our consciousness, and that which leads us to decay and death sooner or later. We all are doomed to die sometime or later. No one on this earth has come with a permanent visa to live and stay here longer. So there is no point in hoarding anything in excess.

Food is God; God is love; spread love by sharing food; God will reward you with more as you give more. It’s a cosmic law and time tested truth.

There is so much beauty in sharing. Life’s beautiful when it’s caring for others.
