My dear readers and friends, you are welcome back.
This portion of my write up Part- A is unplanned and spontaneous. Part B came earlier than this. I decided to make two parts of this post like many before, nonetheless in the end both the parts will be interrelated regarding what is being advocated in both. Part A has my interface with Shri Mahavatar Babaji and his advice to me regarding the new post, while Part B is what Swami Nityananda preached us by giving us a lot of wisdom and sagacious advice to everybody here.
Even so, Shri Mahavatar Babaji has given us many good tips. He has addressed all his devotees and disciples alike spread globally. He has urged me to tell the slow walkers of this good path to walk faster now. They should pick up quickly by this time. Those who have kept their pace at medium speed should investigate why they are not taking quicker steps. Where is their mind engaged and what is it that makes them tread at a comfortable pace? And those aspirants who are marching fast on this path should ensure that they keep their mind focused and introverted and maintain their swift pace continuously. They should not allow their mind to be diffused or disoriented. Apart from these tips of great advice, there was a lot more that was given to me. I had a lengthy conversation two days back with the Spiritual adviser and most humble Guide, my Holy Grand Master Shri Mahavatar Babaji. Moreover, it also becomes obligatory for me to transmit, narrate those important facts as it concerns each of us. This is what transpired and emerged between us one blessed evening currently.
I had to catch up with sleep on 28th Jan so I slept in the day and I woke up in the evening at 5 p.m. with a very pleasant feeling. Even before I woke up fully and with my eyes still shut, I began having a long conversation with Shri Mahavatar Babaji with God’s grace. He keeps a vigil over me all the time like a sweet Divine Father and he waited till I was fully rested and refreshed enough to resume my blogging activities. The last many days were engaged in familial duties and I tried to finish as much as possible so that I could return to my writing table. I was a very sleepy and tired person and so I put aside everything and decided to gain some energy and vitality and be back quickly. Just before I fell in deep sleep around 3 in the afternoon, my mind was delving intensely in the making of the approaching post. I was thinking what should be the content of our next lesson, where do we go from here and what should the devotees do to make progress and march ahead. While I was contemplating on this matter, I felt some calmness and relaxation and inadvertently I fell in deep sleep smoothly. I don’t even know when. All the disturbing noises in my area died out and I slept peacefully for continuous two hours in bounteous bliss.
My unending love for awakening and enlightenment and undying love for my Divine father Babaji, supersedes everything. This is the first thing that occurred no sooner had I regained my wakefulness. I woke up very fresh, Shri Babaji was waiting for me. In a deep meditative state when I was awake, he spoke so promptly, “Do you recall what God told you some months ago about me?”
I instantly murmured sweetly like a babe, “Yes, I do. It was said more than on one occasion.”
“Then begin your post with that first. I have given you the highest spiritual knowledge. Your blog is placed highest in the web-world and all those people who are surfing and have come here incidentally can find all their answers. Everything is here. I am dispensing all the wisdom through it. You are my medium.”
The conversation lasted more than an hour and that supplementary energy coming straight from a powerful source of my Guru made me more invigorated, placid and tranquil apart from that of sleep. The tiredness vanished somewhere as if it wasn’t ever there in the first place. There was a lot that came as helpful advice for each one of us out of which whatever can be imparted in one single post shall be given to you.
My dear ones, what was Babaji referring to? What God told me on some days about Shri Mahavatar Babaji?
Extract from ‘How to know our soul?’
“During the concentrated moments, God told me that Shri Babaji is one of the rare, brilliant gems among mankind for the reason that he is so close to God. When I inquired God what must be his state of mind most of the times as it is my desire to peep into it out of genuine curiosity and aspiration. The reply was that he is in godly ecstasy most of the times since he is so near to God.”
Dear blessed readers and devotees, I take so much joy in revealing to you what God has told me on more than a few occasions. God has appeared to me as effulgent, beautiful, shimmery rays of Light on at least three or four occasions and in explicit words just to emphasize the fact that in this whole creation which God has created, Babaji stands near Him, God. This means first comes God understandably. After which God’s highest realizations and attributes and all elements are reflected maximum in the personage of Shri Mahavatar Babaji in our living, physical world!
In fact, when I was writing my first article on the personal features of Shri Babaji in 2008, ‘The Light of the world Shri Mahavatar Babaji-I, one day completely bemused and mystified to the hilt, with pure innocence I asked him abruptly, “Who are you, Babaji?”
He chuckled and declared with a bemusing, very gentle, soft and clear voice, “I am the CEO of this world!” I loved it, it was to my heart’s desire.
In a spate of swift moments, I immediately comprehended that he has all the Godly powers entrusted on him to run this entire Universe which he does with utmost humility and fairness. It took me many days to let this revelation sink in. I felt extremely blessed to have got an opportunity to know him, to be able to come so close to him. A divine blessing for me, surely.
Again when I was in contact with our beloved God as narrated earlier in ‘How to know our soul?’, I was informed that as Shri Mahavatar Babaji is so near to God, he is our Divine Father too, he is everybody’s Divine Father.
My dear everyone, please know that it is at the behest of the wish of God that we have this knowledge at this point of time with us and therefore so much revelation, so much exposure and disclosure. And because our dearest Babaji does not speak anything to us unless he is guided and prompted by the will of God, we must listen to him very attentively. We must think and ponder what is the reason for this disclosure and rendering at this time and juncture of this blog.
If you look back I have written in the last post right in the beginning that it is the concluding post on the topic of soul but as you can see here this post has become an extension of the same title and subject matter in spite of deciding to wrap up the series. As you all are coming back again on this blog to search, know and learn, there is an equivalent force behind you that is working without your knowledge. The power and presence of God and the divine souls are at work continuously. They are attentive and aware of our improvement, progress, and also personal needs. Looking at all this and keeping everyone’s capacities and requirements in mind carefully, an astute and perceptive decision has been taken by the omnipresent God which reflects directly in the words spoken by the Masters. At an auspicious moment, it was decided by the Almighty that hence forth, a shift has to be taken on the blog to a new, greater height and pinnacle.
A surge to progress and direct contact and union with God should be undertaken on the blog and so all the readers have to be assured and informed well in advance so that they are pretty well prepared in every sense. From now onward, more light and information, discussion will take place regarding God, the almighty Power and Force instead of Shri Mahavatar Babaji. To make this more clear let me tell you that if you see carefully, you will come to know that Segments I, II & III were about the stages of an advancing yogi. In between, the middle section revealed about the personal side of Shri Mahavatar Babaji which was so much welcome by us because so little is either known or written about him in the literary and spiritual world. Posts which have contents related to Banyan Trees and some sages, they all resonate the same objective. They tell us that they feel so blessed and honored to be serving in some way for Mahavatar Babaji; they all feel extremely happy if our dearest Babaji accepts something from them, more so if it is some sort of service to others.
The truth is that some important aspects of Babaji’s personal life has been provided to me through some other agencies in nature also with the wish of God apart from my meditations. The reason is that Babaji does not like to talk too much about himself, in fact very little. On the contrary, he likes to speak through silence by which he provides us all the solutions and answers, although it may be a different matter that we are not yet so developed in mind to receive the intimations which are sent by him through his mind powers. He likes to meditate most of the time so that he can communicate with us in some method mentally like inspirations, telepathy, intuition or clairvoyance and clairaudience via the astral sky in the higher ranges of the atmosphere.
With the post -A foreword before we take a new turn into our future spiritual training on this website, if you remember we took a major shift by telling you formally that this blog is an internet class and is global in nature where spiritual lessons are imparted.
Please read again the very powerful post, ‘I get a new Life, a new Light in Badrinath-III’. I highlight this portion to emphasize that in Karna Prayag when I was meditating, Shri Mahavatar Babaji pronounced and propounded-
“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 with the eternal Brahma. You are Brahma. You are Eternal. Thou art That.”
This was preparing us for an elevation in future. Along with his and God’s words, we have been given tremendous amount of Force and Power to recharge ourselves to take a giant step from this particular post onward. And thereafter, we touched subtle topics of our Soul. All the columns and articles which were explaining the idea, concept or the fundamentals about our soul were delivered with some personal experiences and examples to make them easy to understand and believable. Those of you who have not read the previous portions need to peek into them soon to enable yourselves to grasp what we are heading for now onward.
From today another big Force has been added in this site by means of such dynamic revelations by God and Spiritual giants in the league of Shri Mahavatar Babaji and Shri Nityandanda Swami. My humble pranam and eternal gratitude to them. We will always be indebted to them in our lives to come.
After revealing who Babaji is in earlier so many posts, God does not want to reveal in excess about him. A lot has been disclosed about him on this medium called Spirit in life, and as most of his time is spent in relaying dynamic mental forces in meditative hours in day and night for world’s spiritual welfare, he prefers to remain in silence and seclusion.
As a result we now shift our focus from Babaji’s personal attributes to attributes of God. After having come to know so much about Shri Mahavatar Babaji, it should be easier to compare and be acquainted with the Highest Force which is often named God. As they both are so similar, we should not have a great difficulty in knowing the attributes of God that dwells everywhere- in us and in every particle in the Universe.
Dear friends, you will be delighted to know that some more messages have come to me in the blessed afternoon of 28th Jan while I rested to regain and gather my thoughts for this exquisite post, even if the post will get extended and drawn out.
Babaji whispered further, “Then begin your post with that first……Tell them that you are not a seeker anymore. You are a teacher here. In your spare time, you always tell me about all my disciples and the events on the blog. Not once have you felt that the achievements and success of your blog are yours. Your sense of surrender is very acute. You have been discussing the improvement, progress or regression of all the devotees and seekers who have come to you. You pray for them and ask for their deliverance. You have been taking all approvals from me and have acted upon only those ideas and programs which I have favoured because you rely wholly on my judicious actions and advice. I have given you telepathic powers so that the communication channel is firm and unbroken with God and me. Your deep sense of discipline, commitment and faith is what I expect from all the other aspiring devotees. If they too will keep their Master on top of everything, they too will surge ahead without any delay in their rapid spiritual development. If they can match the sterling quality of obedience which you possess, they will attain victory, glory and uncontainable joy in times to come.”
Swami Nityananda gave me darshan on 22nd Jan morning during meditation after a long hiatus. At the back of my mind, I was trying to solve something. He gave me solutions to some of my personal matters and also blessed me with so much more divine knowledge of which he is so capable. I am of firm belief that it is to be shared with others on this platform for everybody’s use because it is my ‘prasad’.
Swami Nityananda threw a question at me so unexpectedly,
“What is the reason that it takes us so long to know our divinity and to unfold it, although it is already present since our inception?”
Translation, original words follow:
“Your weaknesses, flaws, frailties are the cause of your downfall. Flaws are deeds. Every deed has its consequences. The weight of the consequences has to be carried, and to do that time is needed. New births have to be taken in accordance to those deeds and in those new births, which is a capturing snare, the jeeva or individual soul falls into it.
The knowledge of Self releases us from our darkness. Darkness means vanishing of awareness, doing wrong actions and falling on the wrong path. Whenever we do actions of deceit, betrayal or selfishness, we are forbidden gradually from attaining the knowledge of our Spirit or Atma. This is because we have to bear the consequence of our own wrong actions and we bear them on our body and mind.
Those people, who in the name and guise of religion, dharma are not telling the whole Truth to others, will find their knowledge waning slowly.
And those people who are enjoying good time in the name of religion or God is only because of some good deeds of earlier life. However, because of their wrong deeds of today, the previous lives’ good deeds will be washed away soon. And that’s why I too call Shri Mahavatar Babaji a Banyan Tree and the rest of today’s new age, modern Gurus are like changing weathers, withering seasonal flowers.
We should once and for all attain that knowledge which will annihilate all our ignorance so that we are able to understand a new world, a new life. Those who walk on the Right Path, God will sustain them and their path, and God will give all blessings and give full knowledge.
We must first attain wisdom, knowledge which is so difficult to attain, many lives are required to attain that knowledge. Just like with great efforts we make rose water with roses, so is the hard process of attaining the greatest wisdom.
Once we achieve the highest wisdom and knowledge, we must remain in that state and not err. We must live in that state for a few years after which we will stabilize in it and never come down.”
In his own words:
“ विकार गिराता है। विकार कर्म होता है, कर्म का फल होता है। कर्म फल भोगना पड़ता है, भोगने के लिए हमें समय चाहिए होता है क्योंकि वैसा जन्म लेना पड़ेगा और नए जन्म में फिर एक चक्र चल पड़ता है।
आत्मा का ज्ञान हमको हमारे अंधकार से छुड़ाता है। अंधकार मतलब चेतना का लुप्त होना, गलत काम करना और गलत राह पर पड़ना। जब जब हम धोखा, झूठ, दगा करते हैं, स्वार्थ के कर्म करते हैं, तब तब हम अपने आपको आत्म ज्ञान से धीरे धीरे निष्कासित कर देतें हैं क्योंकि जो हमनें विकार, गलत काम किये हैं उसका फल हमें भोगना पड़ता है और उसे हम शरीर और मन से भोगते हैं।
जो लोग धर्म के नाम पर, उसकी ढाल पर लोगों को पूरा सच नहीं बताते, उनका ज्ञान धीरे धीरे लुप्त हो जाता है।
और जो वो अब ख़ुशी, ऐश पा रहें हैं वो पिछले जन्म के अच्छे कर्म हैं, सो मिला है। लेकिन आज के गलत काम उनकी सारी कमाई को साफ़ कर देंगे। इसलिए मैंने बाबाजी को बरगद का पेड़ कहा और आज के बाकी साधुओं को, गुरुओं को, धार्मिक गुरुओं को, आती जाती बहार कहा है। वे एक मौसम के फूल हैं।
हमें एक बार ज्ञान ऐसा लेना चाहिए जो हमेशा के लिए सारी तबाही ख़त्म कर दे, नई दुनिया, नए जीवन को समझने के लिए। जो नेक राह पर चलेगा, उसके रास्ते को और उसको, भगवान बनाये रखेगा, उसको भगवान पूरा ज्ञान देगा, खूब आशीष देगा।
पहले विवेक, ज्ञान प्राप्त करना है जो कि बहुत कठिन है, इसमें बहुत जन्म लगते हैं। जैसे देसी गुलाब में से बहुत मेहनत से गुलाब का जल बनता है, ऐसे ही कड़ी मेहनत से ज्ञान प्राप्त होता है।
ज्ञान मिलने के बाद उसमें बहुत काल तक रहना है, कोई गलती नहीं करनी है। कुछ साल उसी अवस्था में रहना है, उसके बाद हम स्थिर हो जायेंगे और कभी भी नीचे नहीं आएंगे……..”
“Vikar girata hai. Vikar karam hota, karam ka phal hota hai. Karam phal bhogna padta hai, bhogne ke liye hame samay chahiye hota hai kyunki vaisa janam lena padega aur naye janam mei phir ek chakra chal padta hai.
Atma ka gyan humko hamare andhkar se chudata hai. Andhakar matlab chetna ka lupt hona, galat kaam karna and galat raah par padna. Jab jab hum dhokha, jhooth, daga karte hai, swaarth ke karma karte hai, tab tab hum apne aapko Atma gyan se dheere dheere nishkasit kar dete hai kyunki jo humne vikar, galat kaam kiye hai uska phal hume bhogna padta hai aur use hum shareer aur mana se bhogte hai.
Jo log dharam ke naam par, uski dhal par logon ko pura sach nahi batate, unka gyan dheere dheere lupt ho jata hai.
Aur jo woh ab khushi, aish paa rahe hai woh pichle janam ke achche karam hai, so mila hai. Lekin aajke galat kaam unki sari kamai ko saaf kardenge. Is liye maine Babaji ko Bargad ka Ped kaha aur aaj ke baki sadhuoko, guruo ko, dharmik guruo ko passing show, aati jaati bahar kaha hai. Woh ek mausam ke phool hai.
Hume ek baar gyan aisa lena chahiye jo hamesha ke liye sari tabahi khatam kar de, nayi duniya, naya jeevan ko samjhane ke liye. Jo nek raha par chalega, uske raaste ko, aur usko bhagwan banaye rakhega, usko bhagwan poora gyan dega, khoob ashish dega.
Pehle vivek, gyan prapta karna hai jo ke bahut kathin hai, isme bahut janam lagte hai. Jaise desi gulab mei se bahut mehnat se Gulab ka jal banta hai, aise hi kadi mehnat se gyan prarpt hota hai.
Gyan milene ke baad usmei bahut kaal tak rahena hai, koi galti nahi karni hai. Kuch saal usi avastha mei rahena hai, uske baad hum sthir ho jayenge aur kabhi bhi neeche nahi ayenge……..”
