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…

Live the Real YOU   Leave a comment

Corrupt politicians, rogue capitalists, unethically rich business classes, highly depraved big shots of Tollywood/Bollywood or any other ‘wood’ i.e., the so called heroes (and also comedians), producers and directors and lastly the crooked media, both print and electronic, all these have formed into a strong clique. The democracy is held in hostage by this clique and it never allows anyone from outside to enter it or to grow out of one’s sheer talent or capability. This is the biggest tragedy of Post-Independent India and total travesty of our much hyped democratic values!

Independence has brought more independence to certain sections and turned vast pool of masses still dependent only on these highly influential sections. Economic liberalization has put many souls on cloud nine but there are still many more hapless sections living in perpetual misery, utter chaos and complete darkness and dragging on their wretched existence. Globalization has really changed the face of the globe and contracted and reshaped it into a comfortably tiny village but the adamantine walls built among different sections on the lines of caste, class, language, race, region have become so strong and sturdy that there is going to be more diversity and divergence than unity and convergence. There is more chaos than unity, more pollution and adulteration than purity, more disgruntling and disenchantment than contentment, more disarray and disharmony than peaceful coexistence!

Who have let this sad state of affairs to happen on this otherwise beautiful earth? It’s we, yes we, we all of us have to take responsibility for this sad state of affairs. Utilitarian relationships, excessive reliance on materialism and the unbridled greed are at the core of factors that have led these ugly conditions to pass on us and going to be passed on our next generations. The new found educational, employment and sociopolitical opportunities in/due to the post-liberalization economic boom have indeed made our lives so ecstatic and tension free and allowed us to move up the social ladder with comparatively much ease and less effort but the sad thing is, we have deliberately forgotten our roots and basking in the glory of the new found heights where we have placed ourselves so safely and from there we never dare what’s going on down at the bottom and never care for those because of whom we have got to climb such greater heights!

Dear friends,
let’s always remember we didn’t bring anything and won’t take anything with us, and in between we are living in a ‘fools’ paradise’ thinking we are for eternity and this life is a permanent one. We are amassing huge wealth just to pass it on to our progeny and to their progeny and even to their progeny. We always want to be in high positions and desperate to have name and fame all to ourselves and frantically trying to rub them on to only our children forgetting the basic fact that there is some all pervading, all permeating and all encompassing ‘cosmic influence’ which decides what we are meant to be and what we are destined to be in the vast cosmic phenomena. Just remember all the series of incidents which led to the shaping of the character of ‘Gowthama Buddha’ and how Siddhartha metamorphosed himself into an ascetic.

Only the selfless can see the light and have the clarity in their thoughts, words and deeds and all those who are selfish, egoistic and egotistic can never be one with themselves and they can never even identify with anyone/anything else in the universe. They are surrounded by thick layers upon layers of darkness, perpetual misery and hopelessness. They are doomed to die a dog’s death!

Let’s all shed the false masks and be real of us and face the reality head on and enjoy being in reality… only that is real joy and real happiness and all others will just be a mere passé!

Enjoy your real life to the fullest and let your children, others’ children and everyone else enjoy their own lives to the fullest. Don’t live other’s life and don’t let others live your life. Never toe other’s lines and never force others to toe your bad lines!Life is good, надпись, цвета, черный фон, 1672x1045

LIFE’S SO BEAUTIFUL, let’s enjoy every bit of it as it unfolds itself 🙂

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!

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.

Truth alone triumphs!

Aa Naluguru (Those Four)….   Leave a comment

The ultimate truth and reality of life is beautifully told through this song (please download the song if it doesn’t play) from the movie Aa Naluguru, one of the finest films of Tollywood, directed by Chandra Siddharth. The lyrics is by Chaithanya prasad, sung by SP Balu and music by RP Patnaik. The performance of the versatile actor Rajendra Prasad as the protagonist of the movie is exemplary and deserves the highest accolades.

A highly moving song and it directly touches the core of our hearts!

……….

1. ఒక్కడై రావడం ఒక్కడై పోవడం నడుమ ఈ నాటకం విధి లీలా 

వెంట ఏ బంధము రక్త సంబంధము తోడుగా రాదుగా తుది వేళా

Okkadai ravadam okkadai povadam naduma ee natakam vidhi leela

Venta ye bandhamu raktha sambandhamu thoduga raaduga thudi velaa

(You come all alone and leave all alone and everything in between is a play enacted by the destiny

No relation, not even the blood relation will come along with you at the last and final moment)

……….

2. మరణమనేది ఖాయమని మిగిలెను కీర్తి కాయమని

నీ బరువూ నీ పరువూ మోసేదీ….

Maranamanedi khayamani migilenu keerthi kayamani

Nee baruvoo nee paruvoo mosedee….

(That death is the ultimate reality and the mortal remains are your glory

Your load and your honour are finally carried by….)

……….

3. ఆ నలుగురూ…. ఆ నలుగురూ….

ఆ నలుగురూ…. ఆ నలుగురూ….

Aa naluguru…. Aa naluguru….

Aa naluguru…. Aa naluguru….

(Those four…. those four….

Those four…. those four….)

……….

4. రాజనీ పేదనీ మంచనీ చెడ్డనీ భేదమే యెరుగదీ యమపాశం

కోట్ల ఐశ్వర్యము కటిక దారిద్ర్యము హద్దులే చెరిపెలె మరుభూమి

Rajani pedani manchani cheddani bhedame yerugadee yamapasam

Kotla aishwrayamu katika daaridryamu haddule cheripele maru bhumi

(The distinction between the king and the pauper, and the good and the bad are not known to the shackles of Yama/the Death

The lines that divide the vast wealth and abject poverty are erased by/at the desert land/grave yard)

……….

5. మూటలలోని మూలధనం చెయ్యదు నేడు సహగమనం

మనవెంటా కడ కంటా నడిచేదీ….

Mootala loni mooladhanam cheyyadu nedu sahagamanam

Mana venta kada kanta nadichedi….

(The bundles of cash and gold won’t come along with you now

But your final/ultimate sojourners are….)

……….

6. ఆ నలుగురూ…. ఆ నలుగురూ….

ఆ నలుగురూ…. ఆ నలుగురూ….

Aa naluguru…. Aa naluguru….

Aa naluguru…. Aa naluguru….

(Those four…. those four….

Those four…. those four….)

……….

Everything that we feel, think, say and do are meticulously recorded in the Universal Cosmic Registry; and they are the strongest bases for our behaviour and all our consequent actions. The action good or bad, will have its own reaction.

Everything happens for a reason and that reason is the reason for some remote reason. It’s only TIME that’s the eternal witness and the supreme arbitrator and adjudicator. Greatest are those who go beyond  time and reason and be a strong reason for others to have a reason to live on!

The Ultimate Reality   Leave a comment

Attainment of the ‘highest spiritual reality’ without physical labour; mental exertion; and intellectual application is like looking out frantically through the gap of the closed windowpanes. The window has to be opened and left totally ajar, if at all we want to see the things in their totality. We all are shouting “peace, peace, peace”, without realizing a piece of what it is like. It’s been falsely ingrained in us that spirituality is for those who desist from material world, and is the easiest of all the things of the world to attain. So it’s being pushed back and kept for the later stages of our lives and constantly been postponed. This is far from truth and an erroneous and misleading and deceitful notion. Spiritual reality is the most difficult and challenging thing in the world to attain and requires calling the highest energy frequencies from all the levels of our total being. Spirituality is for infusing more meaning into our material life and for its enrichment and fulfillment.

 

GOD is ONE and is the resplendent SPIRIT in all of us, and SPIRITUALITY has no religion!
