What could be a better day than this to blog free spiritedly? Though this is the last entry for the month of November and soon the year will end with three more entries, yet I wish that all of you must not overlook this date-30th Nov. This was the day when Shri Mahavatar Babaji was born more than one thousand eight hundred years ago in Parangipettai, Tamil Nadu. It is an auspiscious day today for the reason that it is the birth anniversary of Swami Shri Nityananda of Ganeshpuri also. I get a feeling just now that this is an auspicious time of the day and I must speak to everyone right now.

Since I could not take out time earlier to compose the new post, this one is impromptu and unpremeditated; words are just flowing out of me as I remember these two great saints of India. The very fact that in spite of sleeping quite late last night, I woke up in the morning at 5.45 am sharp as fresh as a morning dew drop on a grass blade, I knew that today is going to be a day full of tranquillity, auspiciousness and  laden with blessedness. Seeking their blessings and offering my purest gratitude, I begin to speak to you with my words on this blog.

I can right now apprehend Shri Mahavatarji’s blessed figure in front of me so full of love and sacredness. He can be seen right now with his gentle arms unfolded and stretched outwardly like a divine father to embrace all of us although we have committed some transgressions and misconducts earlier. Yet today he has forgiven us and wishes that we should make a new beginning, a fresh start with an attitude of humility, thoughtfulness and an offering. We should offer ourselves, our whole selves at his feet and seek his guidance to make a fresh start. We should be bold enough to etch out a new life for ourselves by walking on that new path. I take a pledge at this moment to rededicate myself by offering my whole life, my whole being by prostrating down in his refuge absolutely with all my love, gratitude and humbleness.

He asks us a few questions which we must listen carefully and address them with attention, “Who  are you? What for have you come in this world? What are your goals? What do you want to become? How will you achieve those goals? Who is your guidance?

This life is not for amassing and accumulating tons of gold and other wealth. This life is not for fulfilling your earthly desires. This life is not for fulfilling your pride and satisfying small, irrelevant goals. This life is not given to us for settling scores of many past lives either. Neither is this life meant for pursing conflicts and battles and waging wars on others. We just have to sit calmly in our homes with lot of fresh air and open sky and abundant light to realise that we have come on this Earth with a much, much bigger purpose and meaningful missions. We have come here to know ourselves. We should be able to go deep down inside with the help of regular satsangas, holy company and holy talk and meditation. Contemplation is the outcome of meditation. Wisdom comes with contemplation and practise of yoga of meditation.”

He has requested all of you to henceforth ask questions with plentiful humility and unpretentiousness and seek your answers here. The foremost quality of a seeker is humility after which comes gratitude. Those who are not humble cannot win the heart of the Guru. From Guru comes gyan or wisdom. Wisdom will liberate you……Om shanti, shanti, shanti Om……

 

Part A

All my dear  readers, hope you had a good festival time with your family and friends and are by now well settled in your normal day life. My overdue warm greetings, good luck and good wishes to each one of you. I did not wish anyone personally because this time I preferred to celebrate Diwali by spending a lot of time in teaching my daughter, who was lagging behind because of time crunch as she was working in the office overtime since many days. Nonetheless, it was managed quite well and I foresee that whenever she cannot devote enough time in her spiritual pursuits, she will catch up from time to time. No matter what we are pursuing in our lives at this moment, it is imperative that we should also devote sufficient time in our spiritual development side by side so that we lead a holistic, wholesome, pure and joyous life.

It has been a long journey since the inception of Spiritinlife weblog in May’2008. This blog was basically intended to please my daughter and was a birthday gift and it was intended to last for a year only. But then, it has continued and subsisted only because it had the blessings of all my holy Masters. The first year was naive and suave as I was grappling with my own reservations about susceptibility to opinions of people about my spiritual experiences, more so from various spiritual organizations and other known establishments. To my pleasant surprise, none of those uncertainties came to be true. Whatever I wrote was straight from my heart and I think that touched and built the cord between me and the readers.

Blogging in second year, helped me to shatter my doubts and hesitations and scratched open my hidden mine of exceptional spiritual experiences known only to my family. I found my feet firm by now and I saw that I had the innate ability to write and pursue my dream of expressing my thoughts pretty well. My personal experiences of my struggle to break my own limitations gave me enough substance to publish one post in every ten days. While I was sharing my past travels and personal experiences, I also realized that I was indeed a blessed soul as I was able to break through my mental hindrances and blockages. So I began to try harder than before without knowing what would become of all this at the end of it. It also helped me to understand the importance of making efforts from the seeker’s end and I obeyed every small instruction or command given to me in my meditations by my Gurus. The instructions have come also while I was sleeping or awake or in the middle of something crucial. But each word was sacred, every line my holy mantra and each command God’s will.  I have only uttered, “Theek hai ji”  “Fine, it shall be done.”

Third year brought me so much closer to my Param guru Shri Mahavatar Babaji,  who was so kind enough to let me peep into his personal life, early childhood, his feelings and reactions on behaviour meted out by his people and how he perceived the world with his own eyes and insight. My favourite posts are the ones which are related to our Consciousness and Shri Babaji’s biography Expand your consciousness-II. And they have all come without my demanding, as sheer grace!

By the time fourth year ended, I was a confident writer and an experienced extra sensory preceptor. Travelling far and wide in India opened my eyes to not only my own past lives but also what modern India is and the sensibilities of the people living in those places . And at the peak, after I visited Badrinath area the third time in a gap of five months between May and  September 2012, I grew into a new person as I found a new light on my spiritual heights. I reached the pinnacle of incessant holy experiences given to me as a grace from God and my own Guru Shri Mahavatar Babaji and I understood the true meaning of self-surrender and grace of God in spite of unfavourable external conditions meted out to me. You must have read those posts where I have described in detail about all this in posts which have the word Badrinath as one of the words in the title…..My last posts ‘New Light, New Life‘ and  ‘I get a new life, a new light in Badrinath-I, II & III’ are a testimony to what I have just stated.

These four plus years are a canvas on which a whole spiritual journey of a yogi or an aspirant has been etched out. It portrays the struggles, questions, answers, insights, relationship of a teacher disciple, their love and aspirations, the hard toil of the guru on his/her devotee and finally the culmination of all the sweat and grind on both the sides. About a year back or so, on one sunny morning, Shri Babaji commented to me, “Tujhe banate banate mera dum nikal gaya” which means that it has taken a toll on me while I have been making you. You can now get an idea as to how much hard work and persistence goes in the making of a perfect disciple and the bearing of its fruits; of all the penance and spiritual practices undertaken by the seeker and the constant, untiring supervision and guidance of the Spiritual Master, all included.

Until now this blog was projecting the journey of a seeker in her pursuit of direct communion with God. It reflects her frustration with her failures in loving this world as it is and yet finding a meaning to her existence, a purpose to live her life meaningfully and to find the Master Planner, the executer of this whole Universe one day.  Her own struggles to balance her outer life with inner divine life and to bring all three useful effects into her daily life-gyan, bhakti and karma– spiritual knowledge, devotion for God and love for all others and having the judgement to choose and pick the right actions have created some very original, matter of fact and useful write-ups which will help thousands of other aspirants in future. And this was the main aim of Shri Babaji in helping me to choose the right topics and their substance so that he could tell the world one day that yes it is possible- it is possible for you and several others to achieve great success in your own spiritual pursuits.

 A brand new path has been chalked out through Spiritinlife, the clean path has no adulterations and if you are ready to walk on this path, you shall succeed. Provided, Shri Mahavatar Babaji says that-

  • You are always obedient towards him and your mentor.
  • You will keep your mind in control by practising yoga of meditation or dhyan yoga daily without fail for a very long period of time
  • Have enough patience till you see positive results
  • A part of your income to be shared and given for suitable charitable causes
  • Occasional mental and physical isolation to facilitate and retain new learnings. Spiritual tours to pilgrimages required to boost the positive energies

Today’s sadhana according to Babaji, is something that can be done at home but we need to give ourselves in whatever ways to restore the environment that has been deteriorating at a very rapid pace in modern times. We have to add to our sadhana, which we will be doing at home,  the seva or serving the Mother Earth. This is new age sadhana as per his vision and if we care to follow this ideology, then we should get very quick results in our endeavours.

A foundation will be made in future which will have the name Nav Jeevan Jyoti Foundation, NJJF. It means New life New light Foundation. This word has been coined by Babaji himself because through this blog and its Foundation, he wishes to communicate with his millions of followers and well-wishers. He wishes to spread spiritual light and wisdom and give new life to this planet by involving as many people as possible with the help of these two mediums. There would be mainly five objectives of NJJF-

  • To spread awareness about the grave necessity of restoration of our Earth planet
  • To spread divine knowledge in India and far off lands
  • To dispense ancient spiritual wisdom through modern tools and technology through internet to cover as many people as possible in the world.
  • To involve people’s participation in greening the Earth
  • To preserve the Himalayan Mountains and the rivers; more so the sacred place where Mahavatar Babaji lives near Badrinath. The recent spate and trend of landslides and flash floods in the Himalayas in the month of August and September are an indication that all is not well in that environment. And to enable and allow Babaji to live in his cave in Satopanth and other winter abode, that environment should be protected. In future, tie ups with other working agencies and NGO’s in the mountains shall be welcomed and solicited in this regard. It is indeed a mammoth task and mission.

Dear readers, Spiritinlife blog is now taking a new turn for the suitability of all its readers at this stage. So far, it was the story of one aspirant who was seeking alone randomly without any obvious and visible help yet did not give up until she got what she had set out to become. And this is an assurance to all future seekers who arrive here, either through their tryst of destinies or are suggested by others that please have patience, endure and you shall succeed. From this point onwards, the posts are going to be directed towards you and not me. Hence the next topic would be “Who are you?” and not ‘Who are we? So please keep that in mind and begin a new journey, a journey that has just begun for you. It is Babaji’s mission to enlighten as many people as possible and this blog has begun a world wide open school with headquarters in Badrinath and a regional school in Mumbai!! You can reach out to me at spiritinlife@gmail.com and also write your comments right here on the blog. Those desirous of having a first class degree need to put in extra time and hours. Those who wish to postpone their plans, can do it at their own snail pace and those who have thought or are thinking that they can do it alone because they do not need the help of a mentor or even a Guru, are welcome to have their opinions intact. But they will not be assured of any grace or tutelage if they are stubborn and not obeying the instructions, sometimes given so repeatedly and  not respected at all. We all have come here out of our own will and we shall reach wherever we can because of our own understanding, devotion and efforts because God and Guru are very fair and unbiased. It is our sole discretion and choice! So walk on everybody with a fiery passion, a new zeal and a new light!!

 For the sake of convenience, I wish to review this blog once again and let you know that it divided into three levels-I, II & III.

Segment A, which was named Celebrate Life is of level I and belongs to intense knowledge or Teerva Gyan. New readers will have to refer post Expand your Consciousness-II to know what these three new words mean. They are teevra gyan, prachand gyan and prabhutva gyan.

Segment B Door to Heaven pertains to very intense knowledge and rightly called as Prachand Gyan. It falls in level II

 Segment C titled Life Sacred is of level III. From the post “Delusion” onwards the blog picks up slowly accentuating towards blazing knowledge from ‘How does one know Atman?”. I have touched upon subjects regarding our Consciousness, Super Consciousness and how to expand our consciousness. Our consciousness is expanded by three factors- our thoughts, our will and our deeds,-sankalpa Shakti, ichcha Shakti and kriya Shakti. You will find many posts here which are an explanation on these powers that we possess and are yet not introduced in us or their  potentials have not been tapped  fully.

In between there are posts which tell us about the food and diet that a yogi should follow and how peace is of utmost importance for him or her because tranquillity brings about stability of mind. The foremost importance of the role of a great guru in a seeker’s life is also explained at the end of this segment in Why is it mandatory to have a Divine Guru I & II.

Segment D Part I – Our lost Heritage is a two pronged segment. It covers two subjects and serves two purposes. One is our lost heritage and the importance of restoration of the ancient and new spiritual, heritage sites. Therefore it has many colourful pictures as I visited many heritage sites. Secondly,  this segment is dedicated to some of my prominent past lives which I regressed into as the whole circuit and expedition was getting over and it helped me heal my past as well as introduce me to the uncountable prominent good deeds   and accomplishments that I  achieved in previous led lives. This information not only gave me a strong belief and confidence in me, on the other hand it proved to me that to achieve the highest state of human spiritual evolution called nirvana or moksha or enlightenment, we should qualify to attain it by being pure, virtuous and selfless in many lives so that we accumulate a huge number of pious karmas.

And that life does not end once we cast our bodies on the Earth. There is a similar life in the skies and we continue to grow, get rewarded or punished according to our present and past deeds and continue to evolve even out there!! Segment D Part IIFar Into the Journey Unknown represents this topic. It also has reflections and anecdotes from my own knowledge of Occult as given by my Gurus. This is the reason I never get tired of thanking them all the time because these subjects are not handed down by our parents and neither are they taught in any regular school. It is a gift given by our Spiritual teachers so that we can navigate our voyage easily and with some basic knowledge of the other unknown worlds we learn to live our lives on the Earth peacefully and are in control of our thoughts, deeds and  present lives.

My undying yearning to see Babaji and thank him personally for the gratitude I have harboured over the years kindled enduring flame to touch his holy feet.  My wish to go to Satopanth and meet him personally made me cross all sorts of barriers physical, mental as well as spiritual for a decade.. The last part of segment D consists posts which narrate that part- A Voyage to Eternity-A Pilgrimage to Shri Mahavatar Babaji’s Ashram at Badrinath.

The new segment E appropriately named New Light, New Life begins with posts which are my experiences regarding my failure to meet him personally because of bad weather and non-supportive provisions and backings. Yet I was given the highest blazing knowledge Brahma Vidya   which I had longed for,on my way back home in a car through mental transference. The purpose was fulfilled in a very bizarre manner. It is now that I sort of understand to some limit, how intricately everything was woven and planned to give me those experiences to realize. That I should be surrendering to God in each and every circumstances and only after I had done so at the highest level, could I have a direct, face to face experience with the Divine!!! Oh! What a fantastic journey this has been!!!

And finally, each segment is a book in itself. As the time becomes right, these segments will be published as a single book on Kindle and hard cover also so that Shri Mahavatar Babaji’s life, glory, mission, future forecasts and world mission can be documented forever and can be used for posterity. And the income of the books that will be generated will be used to spread his teachings, aims and mission all over the world.

Hope the old as well as the new readers will now get an overview of this complete blog.  And after getting to know it, the seriousness about the aims, objectives and the mission of Shri Mahavatar Babaji will automatically seep in. This should make them more one pointed and focused and they can plan and chart out their future spiritual life journeys. Any help, guidance and support that you wish to take shall be provided, it is my pleasure!

Now to end this post, a small narration of a beautiful and short spiritual experience that I had only yesterday less than twenty four hours ago…….

Part B

Last night was an uneasy night for several reasons. I was not getting any sleep. The fundamental concern was that I still hadn’t received very clear instructions regarding the content of the new write-up and time was just flying away. The post was due today. So I sat down on the sofa peacefully after the day was done, and on impulse went back to my heavenly experience that I had in Karna Prayag. (see the later part of the post) I could again see some drizzle of golden haze and thin rays of light in my vision. The very fine drizzle precipitated in front of my eyes  and calmed me down completely. Although in the last few days, I have been repeatedly reassuring  myself that I will not be let down and my work will be delivered well on time, I became a little anxious by this  time.

Ever since I encountered this extra special spiritual experience in the Himalayas, I have been silently telling God that henceforth I shall never ask anything more because without my even asking or demanding, already so much blessedness and grace has been bestowed over me that I do not wish to seek any more favours. Whatever new  has to come should come as just grace from God’s side. Whatever comes will be taken as Prasad and Kripa, mere Grace.

So sitting with so much peace and harmony, when I peeped inside myself, I saw that there was nothing inside me except grace, wonderful blessedness. And that finally I had arrived at a stage where out of unconditional love, the seeker surrenders selflessly and gracefully and grace comes automatically. Knowing and experiencing divinity to this great extent, I have arrived at a stage where the ‘jeeva’ or individual being dies out completely and only God exists; only grace of God exists. This is full surrender when the devotee dissolves himself or herself and immerses its identity completely into the consciousness of the Highest Force. So whatever comes from God, at whatever time, even knowledge or revelations is absolutely acceptable to me……I have no say in it.

 I got my ideas about this post in the early hours of today. I have understood that from now onwards my Guru and God are giving me lessons with a new method. The higher I go, the subtler it becomes. I should be extremely patient and never forget that God is forever working and guiding me but sometimes I cannot read in between the lines so I should wait- wait more patiently.

When is it that God is not with me? We just have to be very patient enough to know that there is no moment ever  when we are not in the presence of the grace of God. We only have to be in complete harmony and union, that’s all!

Just yesterday, I went to take some rest in the afternoon to get started working on my new post.  By that time, I had not even done any preparatory work for the same. By taking rest, I wished to collect my thoughts and was wondering that although I had enough to say but how do I start this one. I knew what the main theme was but a lot of times I do not know how to begin a new write up. Probably, this was also due to the fact that the splendid festival Diwali, the festival of lights and happiness has surcharged the environment with a buzz of activities. I was not getting the right environment to meditate. With that intention in my mind and to bring to a halt my regular humdrum activities, I decided to devote some time for relaxation and to take a breather and consolidate myself.

During that time, I meditated while I also tried to find answers to some quirky things that happened a few hours ago apart from some lingering personal problems stirring in the past many months. As I relaxed more and more and got respite in a few minutes, slowly my answers began to trickle in. I found some accurate answers from the highest Consciousness and I realized that we need extraordinary patience and persistence if we want to know the cause of the bizarre and inexplicable happenings that occur to us.  Everything has a reason, and that happens because there is a cause somewhere about which we have no clue. Thinking of all this and marvelling at the micro- functioning of the Universal Laws in our Cosmos, I felt very gratified and I became quiet. My eyes were closed approvingly and I was in complete harmony of mind and body. At this point of time, I saw a beautiful Diwali earthen lamp made of dense golden glowing light in the far expanses. It was sparkling and had intense light coming out of it. I was wonder struck at this appeasing sight and took delight in having the rare opportunity to see a blaze of Light in front of me so brilliantly.

A drop of dazzling Light from this lamp came towards me and entered my forehead and it encircled the spot of the Divine eye which we call the third eye. I deliberately allowed it to come in. Just as I recognized that the Divine Light has arrived, the second patch of Light arrived at the same spot. Then the third enforcement and may be another bit of more bright light until the lamp vanished and I started quivering gently. With this accomplishment, I had become totally recharged and ready to begin my work. In a conjuring manner, I found answers to not only the quaint circumstances and the developments that were taking place over the last many days. On the other hand, I also got a reason to begin this post with an appealing anecdote!!

Of late, I have had quite a few experiences of profound revelations since I have returned from Badrinath in September. If I compare my experiences and recent life situations with the Environmentalists or Naturalists, we have something in common. Our experiences teach us to have great patience. The most exquisite experiences and triumphs of an Environmentalist or Naturalists come after a long hiatus, a deep longing and a treacherous wait. To support my statement, take the instance of the Naturalists and Ornithologists who spend days and months even years, in deep forests. They have worked painstakingly, waited endlessly to get a glimpse of the most exquisite birds called the Birds of Paradise in the untouched forests.

So many times success eludes them yet they go again to those forests to watch these exclusive birds. The Birds of Paradise are ethereal, incomparable and most strikingly beautiful because of magnificent colours of their feathers and plumes. Their iridescent plumage and extraordinary, elongated and elaborate feathers combined with their unbelievable enticing dance and astonishing serenading are nature’s most extraordinary wonders on Earth!! These exceptionally beautiful and miraculous birds exist in only one place on Earth and the Environmentalists and the Ornithologists go all the way to those untouched rain forests to do research on them and record documents. And all this requires exceptional painstaking labour and patience. I thought of all this in the bed when I went back to my very fresh experiences in the Himalayas and I remembered my own unimpressive and ineffectual trek to Satopanth. And as I was brooding over all this, I was blessed with an eye opening and prodigious revelation. However, for you to know what those revelations were, we will have to go back and forth in times as I did myself yesterday  afternoon to consolidate my myriad spiritual experiences taking place in the last few months.

Part-I

Extraordinary experiences demand extraordinary patience.

When I was returning from Badrinath from my failed attempt to meet Shri Mahavatar Babaji personally, I was wilted and lifeless. I was not able to come to terms with the most unexpected turn of events and I could not even understand why all that happened to us. And what was the reason for Babaji to bring me to such high altitudes with so many hardships and then turn down my plea and aspirations? Why did he inspire me so much only to be denied? Why didn’t he meet me? What is going on? All my efforts have borne no fruit and now what in the world will inspire me? I became numb and was too dazed to figure out what was happening to me with the connivance of God and Babaji. In such a state of being insentient and lifeless, I needed mental rest. With all hopes shattered and no energy and life left in me, I wanted to rest in the car as we were driving towards Rishikesh. The time I closed my eyes, I became very still and tranquil and got some rest. Some twenty five kilometres before Karna Prayag, I witnessed that I am no more so anxious and tired. I felt like just shutting my eyes as nothing outside looked any worthwhile; I needed to come closer to my own self. I knew that Babaji had left Badrinath along with me on 22nd Sept and must be in the same vicinity as me somewhere.

(New readers will have to revert to older posts New Light, New Life, I get a new life, a new light in Badrinath-I & II

In spite of my composure, the further I travelled down, the sadder I became. There was a reason for it. Mentally I was still so profoundly connected with him because he gave me information of each detail and description of his movement, hour by hour even minute by minute by telepathy.  There was not a single moment when we were apart. I was actually making two trips on two levels. One mentally with him upwards towards his winter abode in middle regions of Himalayas where he had just shifted, and one in physical terms while I was descending from Himalayas towards Rishikesh. I was literally torn apart in every sense. So close yet so far…..I was also aghast at the extent of personal information that he was giving me incessantly as if to compensate for the rough treatment that I was meted out by him because of the bad trek and unforgiving weather and so on.

I don’t know when it happened but I was very settled and composed as some time passed and I touched my inner depths quite smoothly. I was soon lost to the outer physical world and I was at peace with myself. An exclusive peace made me centred and balanced and I did not want to come out of it at all now. I lost consciousness of time and my own body and got drowned in my inner peace. I stayed in that situation to what seemed timeless and eternity.

At this stage, I saw a very thick shaft of Light penetrating from a big opening up in the higher spaces. The Light had arrived from the divine Heavens onto the Earth and was cutting across the many layers of the skies and had reached the ground. Before it touched the ground, it was sprinkling from that opening in all areas. Some rays were falling on the left side, some in the centre and some on the right side of the opening. The space was filled with innumerable shimmery, beautiful rays of golden Light. The thick beam of Light rays were falling gently from above and they resembled the falling of very light snowflakes sprinkling all the way down on the ground. Soon my whole canvas was filled entirely with ample rays of Divine Light producing unprecedented deep silence and depth less stillness. I stayed with it until in the profusion of Light, I saw a solid trunk of a Banyan tree. In the space between my vision and that tree trunk was the presence of that copious golden Light!

The Banyan tree was situated inside a spacious cave cut out of a mountain piece. Its strong and thick roots were holding to the ground tightly and were distributed in all ways. In front of the tree trunk amidst the drizzle of golden rays was a seat which had a grey woolen blanket. On the blanket someone was seated.  My eyes were keen to know who it was. It was a yogi. I watched this yogi in a mesmerizing spell and awe. I was captivated by his presence and aura. First I saw just the right half of the yogi in meditation whose hair was unusually long and was dropping down freely much below his seat like the hanging roots of the Banyan tree behind him.

Slowly, I saw the full face; it had a radiant golden glow. The body was also brilliant as rays of golden yellow light were coming out of him. He wore an ochre cloth over his body and was meditating with a still body. Now I could see the whole figure and recognized the identity without any doubt or skepticism. I saw myself bending towards him in gratitude and reverence and I had no sense of time or space while I sat there wonder struck. The vision was now complete. I was in a big cave in a mountain where there was an old Banyan tree. There was a lot of divinity present there and the rays of Golden Light from God, of peace and knowledge were coming towards the cave. I sat there on the ground at his feet with poise, peace and patience. We both sat there in the cave under a big Banyan tree amidst the atmosphere of golden light. Much time lapsed and I was having a glorious time during those wonderful moments.

The yogi began to give me a sermon-

“God is an eternal force. That force is in you, recognize it. This Universe is his creation made of illusion, Maya. Separate the Maya from Ishwar God. God is infinite and so is his creation- endless. The supreme knowledge with which one knows God is also eternal shashwat. Attain that. Separate the perishable body from the eternal Brahma. You are Brahma. You are Eternal. Thou art That.”

I heard each word with rapt attention and after listening to these sacred words of eternal knowledge, I underwent another supernatural phenomenon. I saw myself enclosed in a case and I was immediately passing through this case which was like a long, deep passageway. I travelled in it very swiftly and inside the passage also, there was abundant light. I was crossing over this passage amidst a lot of light with ecstasy and after travelling quite a long passage I came out of it as it ended. The moment I came out of this passage, I felt the expansion. There was limitless dazzling Light outside it which was much, much greater and expansive than inside. In an enrapturing bliss, I began to jump up with my right hand raised in the air and my index finger pointing towards the sky and I said, “I am That, I am That, I am That……”

Dear readers, this is a very exact and rare description of Shakti paat or transference of divine energies that took place in my personal spiritual journey when Shri Shri Mahavatar Babaji transferred the realization of that Eternal Force called Brahma from his cave in the Himalayas during the time I was sitting in a car and returning home without meeting him in Badrinath on 22nd of September before Karna Prayag. He gave me a direct experience of that Cosmic Consciousness as grace and compassion. Such experiences require very perfect conditions of mind, body and outer environment.

He was aware that I could not have been able to withstand the acute cold conditions of the place where he spends his summers- the cave close to the Satopanth Lake at 14,000 ft above sea level. It was not the right place for me for this revelation. So he never met me personally at that spot though he was calling me since years. Today I understand that nevertheless, the bungled and unsuccessful trek up to Chamtoli at the height of 12,000 ft was necessary for me and my daughter to be able to undergo some special and specific experiences in order to be ready for this exquisite and very extraordinary spiritual experience which I have just recounted. He was aware since the very beginning that I would not be able to make it to the top yet he made me undergo many extreme near death, physical, mental hardships in various geographical conditions since years as preparations in order to make me complete for the realization and experience of Brahma.

Please refer older post-(A Voyage to Eternity- a pilgrimage to Shri Mahavatar Babaji’s Ashram at Badrinath those readers who do not know the past and backgound of events on which this post is based on)

I am just realizing that Shri Mahavatar Babaji is such a splendid Spiritual Master. I am still discovering him day by day. His expertise lies in working on us endlessly with tremendous patience and waiting infinitely for the results to manifest. He works on us without any rest and like an excellent teacher, he gives us some tasks to accomplish as our spiritual training or sadhana. Many uncountable small tasks when accomplished, combine in the end to achieve something very extraordinary. And for that very extraordinary achievement and triumph is taught the inculcating of extraordinary patience to us.

My very beloved Mahavatar Babaji, I thank you with all my heart, soul and mind for being so patient with me as you have chiseled and sculpted an idol out of a waste piece of rock in the wilderness!!!The craftsmanship, labour, art, sweat, patience and love is yours, I am only the receiver, the beneficiary. You are like the blazing Sun in the sky that lights up this Universe and hides itself at night. The Sun has been lighting up this Earth since I don’t know when and it never ever asks for acknowledgement and  any  credit. Shri  Babaji, you are the Light of this world! You have brought so much Light into my life and through me to other people’s lives. May we be your obedient children and always follow the radiant path of knowledge, humility, consecration, purity and virtuousness as shown by you. This is still too small in return for all the countless blessings that you have been pouring on us endlessly…..
