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……
