Prayer

If you pray you reach

Don’t pray you reach

Truth is

Do both simultaneously

You truly reach

No longer you seek

Finally there is peace

Do you get it my friend?

Understand your lost

No understanding and your lost

Do both simultaneously

You truly reach

No longer you seek

Finally there is peace

This is no zen

Not a quiz or tease

I said the obvious

Find one who goes

Lost in his bode

Jealousy has worked so well for me, confesses a student at SRCC, Delhi

There is a video where a student asks sadguru this question.

She is more motivated to study when her friends do better. Is it wrong?

Sadguru says it is like a donkey running because firecracker was attached to a donkey tail

Millions applauded his answer

The applause is all idolism or hero worshipping

I was not impressed. A donkey that runs because of firecrackers attached to tail is running from fear. Not from jealousy. A bad comparison

But millions will follow! That’s all they can do. Hero worship. Not think

My answer is very different. But who will listen

Home

A great teacher was waiting for someone to learn the wisdom. A few people would visit him

He would ask for a few things before he would impart knowledge

One disciple was very poor. He lived in a mobile home. His mobile home was quite dear to him. The teacher asked for his mobile home. The disciple was aghast. I can’t sir. This is all I have that I have. The teacher shook his head

Where would I live sir?

I will get you a huge palace the teacher said. The disciple looked around. Obviously there was something wrong. The teacher place was less than a cottage. The few windows in the cottage were covered up with wood and the glasses were shattered

More to follow. Maybe

Brahma Gyan

In one of the best books written – called mahayoga vigyan – there is a sentence which says upon drinking dhrut rasa you get brahma gyan

Who knows what it means! ?

But the book is extra ordinary. It is in Hindi. It is not meant for a casual yogi or the western world concept of meditation. What people do nowadays is a joke

Janmashtmi

Today is the 8th day of the ascending moon of the month Shraavan

It is the birthday of lord Krishna. He sang the Bhagwad Gita – the Holy book in Hinduism

Lord Krishna chose to be born in “Jail” where his parents were imprisoned

Lord Krishna manages to escape – the guards fell asleep at his birth and his father Vasudev carried him away from jail. There was a tremendous flood and rain at that time. When the feet of Krishna touched the river Yamuna the river split into two and he was safely carried by vasudev from Mathura to Gokul

There he performed many miracles and at the age of 63 gave divine guidance to Arjun on the battlefield of Kurikshetra

The whole story is a guide on how to meditate. Some deep explanation is available in a few books

These things have been written with much wisdom – the kind you can only get from a Guru

Can I talk with God?

Yes.

Not just an intuitive thought ( which is very easy to mistake that and imagination)

Judy like a direct conversation. Or as clear as reading a book

But he wants us to be clear. Sincere. Determined.

He will not open up until we show those qualities. Not just for a day or two. But for years.

20-30 years in the minimum. But once he opens up. He won’t stop. In a million different ways. He will be there. Or she will be there.

A lot of it I have reproduced from Yogananda

So please don’t seek to me for anything

Worry and brooding

We have had a lot of practice. All life long. Nay for many births.

Of constantly worrying or brooding or imagining.

Watch a movie. And you will constantly say oh no! Or that’s good. Or I wonder what is next ? Or this is what I would have done. Etc !

But that’s what we call enjoyment.

Now the habit takes a permanent hold. And as we grow older we try not to worry or think of our future or look forward to things in life – we get stuck. We just can’t stop thinking !

Sad. It takes a lot of practice to get rid of this trait. Vivekananda called it painting pictures.

But it can be done.
