Commentary & Summaries of long Discourse in Rishikesh- After effects of meditation I, II & III. 22nd to 25th March, 2018-I

May 18, 2018

                Swami Shivananda

Commentary– A long in-house training and rehabilitation Workshop cum Discourse was held in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand on above mentioned three days when a very descriptive and narrative post titled After effects of meditation with all three parts was undertaken.  

Indepth analysis and finer points of the formation, behaviour and reformation of mind and lastly its respite and salvation were disclosed and solutions given on how to bring back the mind to its original state of super consciousness. 

In this post, Swami Shivananda imparted stellar knowledge to me through mind transfer or telepathy during dynamic meditation and revealed its many secrets. That same post was interpreted with an audience in Rishikesh in March of 2018.

Objective and highlights of this Discourse-So far there have been three long in-house discourses in Rishikesh starting from 10th November, 2016 to 25th March, 2018. In this order, three posts were taken up-that of Guru Gorakh Nath, Bogarnathar and Swami Shivananda. And titles correspondingly were-Augment of a New Era, How can you find God in this life? and After effects of meditation. 

In my speech, I highlighted the common thread embedded in all these posts. The three sages have stressed upon – 

-The method of Self Realization and enlightenment adopted in Spiritinlife Open University is Jyoti Marg 

And 

-The nature of mind; how to regain the control of mind and bring it back under our own control to manifest Light of God within. 

-How humans are trapped in the quagmire of Maya and why and how they should retrieve themselves by many methods from this predicament with the grace and kindness of a realized Guru.

Examples. Quoting from Augment of a New Era – 

‘Jyoti Marg or ‘Pathway of Light’ is your natural method which even the ancient seers adopted and mastered. 

The mind can become so powerful one day by it if body, mind and Spirit are balanced most perfectly. 

The mind can travel faster than Light someday if this method is adopted and mastered over many lives, Light cannot be the obstruction at all. 

In place of Light of God, what remains is just God and you can touch God instantaneously and directly in no time. 

‘Jyoti Marg’ or ‘Pathway of light’ has been mastered by particular few and is used for instant messaging and passing on important information and energy. 

God’s highest grace is this where we do not depend on any other mode of communication and we can stay always in His Grace like this. 

And

Guru Gorakh Nath- “Man is blind, man is greedy, man is very selfish, man is not humble and man is not sympathetic by nature.

This is because man does not know and recall that it was God first and then this whole show on Earth!

The temporariness of this ever changing world is very difficult to catch, the delusive powers of God are very astute.

The mirage not possible to overcome, the will of God impossible to tell and the mind of man incredible to win and keep in place.

Time is impossible to sense and predict, past of long human history cannot be peeped into and tapped at all.

Nature cannot be controlled at man’s wish and command, life span of humans cannot be determined at all.

And from After effects of meditation- 

Why did you take this birth? Did you ask yourself ever once?

What is the purpose of your stay here, did you find out until now?

Where will you go from here, do you have any idea about this matter?

What will become of you once you die and live in the upper limits of sky?

And

Calmness of breath and stillness of mind is the secret to avoid all wrongdoings and bungling. 

Years after years and lives after lives, the mind has not been kept in control and rein. 

No time was given to read the mind, speak to one’s own conscience and wait till it speaks to you in return.  

And 

So, we must meditate more to store only useful, compassionate, constructive, useful and beneficial thoughts and ideals. 

If we meditate more, the body receives more energy from the Cosmic Consciousness which can be stored in the cells of the entire body. 

The brain cells can grow at an unanticipated fashion and rate if we segregate and organize the useful and useless knowledge and information. 

New benign cells are needed and we must make them grow in our upper brain to receive the light and rays of Cosmic Consciousness. 

 

Quotes from -How can you find God in this life? 

If you finish the last streak of resistance of the mind when it refuses to bend, you will arrive at a final stage when all cells are sparking. 

The matter becomes Spirit and Spirit is life, consciousness, awareness and illumination that never ends. 

The cells bubble with warmth, energy, effervescence, knowledge and massive life force and current. 

Each cell and compartment begin to emit the light of God through carrying out each action as only God’s will! 

 This is also called ‘Chetna’ or ‘Prakash’ and it is achieved with many lives’ penance and devotion. 

It never dwindles or reduces, on the contrary it increases as the recipient stays in God communion continually. 

The cells are always sparking as God’s rays are continuously alighting to every nook and corner of the being. 

And 

However, this state of awareness is not for all as no one has practiced God union for a very prolonged period in countless incarnations. 

Their focus keeps shifting from one topic to another and the mind is forever dwelling in subjects related to all that is impermanent. 

The mind or mana keeps rotating in its three worlds or states; very rarely peaceful and mum. 

The being revolves in gross, subtle or causal bodies-sthoolsukshma and kaaran shareer. 

  

If you do not know what is mana, how it is formed, how it behaves, how can it become more intangible and communicative towards the Unseen? 

You will always be roaming like a senseless being in three spheres or shareer with your present states of mind. 

The pliable three states of the ever-changing 

How is the mind formed? How should we look after our precious and impressionable mind? 

How not to age or degenerate? How to preserve the longevity of the well-structured and advanced mind? 

How to organize the mind to avoid losing its memory and functionality? 

How to avoid the disturbing or destructive forces which reduce your power? 

  

 The pliable mind is very hard to stop and needs years of steady practice and inner silent revolution. 

The mind or mana becomes placid or faint when it pertains to only peerless Spirit which sometimes is called Parmeshwar or Atma 

And 

The mana can be in three stages- the state of being in the physical world called sthool or physical. 

It can next go a bit inside and enter sukshma or feeling, perceiving state and lastly it can go to its foundation- the kaaran or ego state-the ‘I am’ state. 

Beyond these three states is shunya or emptiness or void where one meets God in light, peace and knowledge. 

Since this topic is very hard to grasp for all, let me now elaborate for you further although speaking for so long is a tedious job! 

  

Top is termed as conscious mind or mana, middle sub conscious and lower is the unconscious. 

Everything that we think, wonder, do, act or observe is captured as a movie and printed in the various levels of mana. 

Together it is a single unit and the printing on the surface is happening every moment to micro minute or second. 

And  

How is the mind formed? How should we look after our precious and impressionable mind? 

How not to age or degenerate? How to preserve the longevity of the well-structured and advanced mind? 

How to organize the mind to avoid losing its memory and functionality? 

How to avoid the disturbing or destructive forces which reduce your power? 

And 

You must lead a very disciplined and austere life and finish all your social obligations to create time and space in your brain. 

You will never again do any unsophisticated action and will always practice God union and communication. 

You must use your senses only as doors or windows to receive outside information and never to indulge!

After effects of Meditation I, II, and III – Swami Sivananda. 

Sadhana: We are following the path of Jyoti marg i.e. Pathway to light.  At later stage Sadhana transcend to stage beyond light.  Beyond light only Braham exist.

We are being prepared for Satyug.  Our Great Masters communicates through thought power.  The method could be either instant thought transference mind to mind connect over chord made of astral light or drop box approach where message can come at time including during sleep but can be assessed when desired. Both these modes of communication are possible only with having higher state of mind and Guru’s grace.

Our Sadhana is “Antarman ki Sadhana” which don’t involve external Sadhana. This is ancient method of Sadhana. We come with heavy baggage of past life karma. Our real test is to trust and follow whatever our Guru’s says wholeheartedly without questioning or doubting it.

Importance of Spiritual places -Going to spiritually charged place accelerates our spiritual growth and cleanse our mind.  Our Masters are helping us to go to these highly vibrant places to absorb spiritual energies which not only lightens our baggage but also put us in accelerated path of self-realization. Period till March-2019 is very auspicious and we should utilize it to max.

What is Mind– Our Mind or Manas (not physical mind) can be divided into three layers. Each level can be further sub-divided into three levels or layers. We are diverse group of people where everyone is unique and are at different state of Consciousness level.  Those who went to Katargama had undergone deep cleansing at upper Sub-consciousness layer and now are going through middle or lower level of Sub-consciousness mind layer cleansing.

PP

Swami Ji was compassionate being, a great Karma yogi and one who had dedicated his entire life for benefit of Mankind and to the service of beloved lord. He gave this knowledge to Ma through mental thought transference. Please know that all knowledge comes from God.  Swami has given this knowledge with great humility to Ma and now Ma has pass this knowledge to us again with great humility. We need to be humble and accept this knowledge with reverence and humility.

-We are living with restless Mind and engaged with unending desires. Meditation helps us calming the mind.  Real process of purification starts when one’s mind is in rest/Maun/calm.  This sacred Knowledge given by Swami ji, once absorbed will act by its own and purify us.

-Fear or worry is Tamas. It means you have forgotten that there is God. Give your best efforts but learn to Trust your destiny.  Be quiet, calm and contended. Please understand that your external world /environment is projection of your inner world or environment.

 – We can create new Pathway, re-wire our brain. We must contemplate, do maun and remove deep patterns or latent tendencies engraved in our mind.

– By putting efforts, one can change his/her destiny. Please do Darun (extreme) efforts. Mukti is not easy. One has to put everything on stake.

– Negative vibrations:  One needs to observant. If it is coming internally stop it. If it is coming from externally, protect yourself. God has given you wisdom. Use it and protect you self. Don’t be Tamsik, saying it is God’s will. Give your best efforts.

 -Our Mind has God’s light. God’s light is covered by dense particle of our bad deeds done in numerous past life.  Whenever we do wrong actions, we get dark mark.  over time the dark cloud of bad deeds hides the light of God.  All this takes out our ability to discriminate between right and wrong actions. One needs to do pious actions as directed by Guru. Once layer of darkness gets removed one by one then that space will starts getting filled by light of the god and slowly, we start intuiting. Intuition comes from power of Atma.

-Whatever activity we do, we should do it with full concentration but our actions shouldn’t be born out of our ego.  Source of our ego is delusion. Know that in a minute body can perish. It is not worth to waste our life in Trivia.  We should positivize ourselves and shouldn’t harbor negative thoughts. Cultivate good and positive thoughts. Know that Thoughts never dies, and they get recoded in Akashik records. Be observant, whatever comes at surface, see it objectively.  On negative thoughts, start doing opposite of negative thoughts to overcome them.

-Our Prana and Mana are inter-related. If our Mind is still, our breath automatically become calm and vice versa.  With agitated mind we are prone to make errors. We need to keep our mind calm. At our current state of mind, meditation is an action. Meditation makes us calm. Only in calmness we can know the right action. Please know that only a healthy body and healthy mind can perceive God. Once our Mind is restful our body starts to cooperates and both body and Mind gets in perfect harmonization.

-A great yogi’s mind is very neatly arranged. We have to arrange our mind like properly kept items in a cupboard. Meditation and right actions helps in developing that.  Please take decisions only in calm state. Postpone your decision’s if you have restless mind.

-Out Atma is part of God.  Nothing is lighter than Atma. Atma is perfect. Knowing Atma is being perfection. A Yogi will do all tasks with excellence. We should always learn new skills, build perfection, put your best efforts to achieve excellence. Work harder than world and achieve. Life is an opportunity, world is a stage for soul to manifest excellence. Don’t be mediocre. Raise your bar. Don’t worry about not being appreciated by the world. Be happy and motivated. If you are not happy, you can’t be creative. Be like dancing peacock who dance anywhere without worrying about world’s appreciation. Know that the biggest Joy is in satisfying our creative urges. Have highest aspirations. All our beloved great masters are saying same thing. We just to read all the posts and contemplate to connect the dots.

 I bow down to my Guru Ma, Swami Sivananda and all our beloved divine masters for their kind blessing and grace without which nothing could have been possible.  Gratitude.

My pranaams to you Ma,

I have just penned down a few of my learnings from the Rishikesh discourse

Ma  took us to Rishikesh on a remarkable  journey inwards with the post “After effects of Meditation I II III” by Swami Shivanandji.

Ma revealed to us that we are following the JYOTI MARG which the ancient seers also followed . This practice involves more of inner sadhana than outer. (Mann ki sadhana). It means direct contact with God through light.
This particular post is a direct transference by Swamiji to Ma.

Swami Shivanandji has explained the characteristics of our mind in detail.

Q).What are the characteristics of our mind?
Answer: 1) All creation made by God including our mind has the tendency of expansion. Apart from expansion, the mind also has a tendency to flow downwards and outwards.

2) Our mind is like a jungle because it has not been cultivated. All kinds of thoughts infest it.

3) Bad actions cause marks on our soul and over many lifetimes become dense like a dark cloud. God’s light remains covered beneath these dark layers.

4) An agitated mind is prone to making errors. Then grooves are formed and we repeat patterns.

Q)How to control the mind?

A) 1. We should start by doing good deeds. Even if we don’t like, we must do good on purpose.

2) We must meditate, do naam japa and contemplate on God.

3) Do rigorous efforts ( Darunya Prayatna) for upliftment. We need to use our power of will.

4) Keep maun for few hours daily. Be adaptable n accommodating and have very high aspirations. Efforts or Purusharth can change destinies.

Q 2. What will happen when we control our mind?

A) 1) When the mind is kept in check, it gets lot of power.

2) Slowly when the chattering stops, we start having better health.

3) When we become lighter, we start intuiting. We intuit because the dense layers are removed, a space is created and Rays of God’s light come in.

4) Mind, body and soul all align together and there is complete harmony.

5) In this harmonious state when we live with the will of God, we connect with universal consciousness.

6) We can divinize each and every cell of our body at a very advanced stage.

Ma also gave us many practical tips to be used for our upliftment.

Like, we should never take important decisions in an agitated state of mind. Only when the mind is calm, we can choose the best for us.
Many times our efforts are not noticed or appreciated, still we should not feel dejected. Just like a peacock dances for its own happiness, without a care in the world, similarly we should rejoice in our own self after doing our best.

Personal advice:
There is great freedom in self-control and discipline. When you are no longer influenced or affected by people and are not insecure or attached, you become free (emotionally and mentally) and it makes you lighter and then you can soar higher.

This was my third visit to Rishikesh with Ma and never have I felt the presence of Swami Shivanandji so strongly as this time. His persona was overwhelming!!!

I prostate myself to the stalwart sage and to you my most loving Guru Ma for uplifting me and teaching me so much.

In deep gratitude always

Neeta

Dear Ma,

Please find my summary of Rishikesh Discourse. Please correct me if I am wrong anywhere.

  1. Spiritinlife path is Jyoti marg.
  2. The characteristic of mind is to flow downwards naturally; Constant and continues effort needed to bring it back and silence it. Meditation is the way to achieve it.
  3. Scattering of the mind cause all the troubles, it shows only unreal; Calmness of breath and stillness of mind is the secret to avoid all wrong doings. One should bring mind to one pointedness and prostrate more inside to realize his self.
  4. We can only get glimpses of god when the mind is motionless. Only in silence, we can think or investigate deeply. Meditation is one way to keep the mind calm.
  5. Our actions should notcome out of our ego. Never create Karma out of our ego. We should not even think that I am a good devotee or a disciple. Or I am doing this, I gave this etc. all this thoughts are product of ones Ego. One should always remember that everything happens only by the will and grace of God. Even the efforts in spirituality we are making just because of his Grace. Always remember that Humility and humbleness is the first requirement of a disciple.
  6. Any instruction is given by the gurus should be taken in humility and respect. Because we are not the owner of knowledge. God is the giver. We should take it with full of gratitude, it is only by the Gurus grace one receive knowledge of Atman.
  7. Knowing Atman is nothing but perfection in everything. We have to try always for perfection without bringing our ego. A karam yogi will do all works in excellence.
  8. Atma is the most subtle thing; Even the mind is heavier than Atman and Mind is also a part of Atman, it never dies.
  9. Do not preach about spirituality or experience to friends or others. Others should be curious about you. Do not let the world know that you are striving hard for God. Have joy in striving.
  10. Never limit your mind by saying I cannot do this. Our brain and Manas have many capabilities. Keep trying and learning until the last date. There is always possibility of expanding our self to infinite.

Yours,

Midhun

Shakti-III

 

Highlights of this post-

-Work as an offering to the Divine.

-To work for the Divine is to pray with the body.

-Consciousness develops best through work done as an offering to the Divine.

-Indolence and inaction end in tamas; that is a fall into unconsciousness; it is contrary to all progress & light.

-To overcome one’s ego, to live only in the service of the Divine.

-I make no difference between work and Yoga. Work itself is Yoga if it is done in a spirit of dedication & surrender.

-When one works for the Divine, it is much better to do perfectly what one does than to aim at a very big work.

-The progress in sadhana comes from the rectification of inner and outer attitude, not from the nature of the work one does-any work, even the most humble can lead to Divine if it is done with the right attitude.

Q-What is concentration?

A-It is to bring back all the scattered threads of concentration to a single point, a single idea. Those who can attain perfect attention succeed in everything they undertake; they will always make a rapid progress. And this kind of concentration can be developed exactly like the muscles; one may follow different systems, different methods of training. Today we know that the most pitiful weakling, for example, can with discipline become as strong as anyone else. One should not have a will which will flicker out like a candle.

The will, the concentration must be cultivated; it is a question of method, of regular exercise. If you will, you can. But the thought, “What’s the use?” must not come in to weaken the will. The idea that one is born with a certain character and can do nothing is stupid.

Dynamic meditation

I think the most important thing is to know why one meditates; this is what gives the quality of the meditation and makes it of one order or another.

You may meditate to open yourself to the divine Force, you may meditate to reject the ordinary consciousness, you may meditate to enter the depths of your being, you may meditate to learn how to give yourself integrally; you may meditate for all kind of things. You may meditate to enter peace and calm and silence-this is what generally people do, but without much success. But you may also meditate to receive the Force of transformation, to discover the points to be transformed, to trace out the line of progress. And then you may also meditate for very practical reasons: when you have a difficulty to clear up, a solution to find, when you want help in some action or other. You may meditate for that too.

I think everyone has his own mode of meditation. But if one wants the meditation to be dynamic, one must have an aspiration for progress and the meditation must be done to help and fulfill this aspiration for progress. Then it becomes dynamic.

A Note- For further reference reading, I have posted some more articles from Fb in the following post here. They were meant to reinforce what I had spoken in the Discourse on 16th December, 2017.


Audios & Videos of- In Divine moments with Kartikeyan Swami-III. Madurai-Palani-Rameshwaram pilgrimage and Discourse 9th to 14th Nov’17

December 14, 2017

https://spiritinlife.blog/2015/04/26/in-divine-moments-with-swami-kartikeyan-iii/.

Highlights-

Water has inherent electricity, power inside it. Similarly man’s thoughts also have energy embedded in it depending on the will power, type of actions done and the nature of the person.

A thought is born in the mind. When it is born, it is like a small bubble about to burst. If one does not pursue or carry forward that positive thought for it to manifest, then it dies out.

If the thought-bubble is applied with the will of the mind of the doer, it starts to enlarge gradually and becomes large enough with the power of the will and the power inherent in the thought itself in the first place. Sankalpa Shakti, Thought Power is a power given to man by God for good intents and reasons.

We must observe our thoughts in order to make ourselves in charge of their strength. And also to keep in check the tremendous force that they can give us especially the negative, weak and damaging thoughts. Negative force arising out of the negative and weak thoughts should be negated completely.

The mind has the power of God but we believe that it is I who is the doer. This type of situation and act is delusion and must be avoided strongly since we are liable to entangle ourselves in the stream of energy in the mind inconclusively. Beware of this ego and deception.

Audios & Videos of- In Divine moments with Kartikeyan Swami-II. Madurai-Palani-Rameshwaram pilgrimage and Discourse 9th to 14th Nov’17

December 12, 2017

 

Highlights-

“Silence and peace, more silence, more peace you shall get if you let go of your past grips or anchors and merge yourself completely in the silence of your Atma. When you come in touch with your Atma, you are in complete restfulness and calmness.

Human being should also constantly remain clean in mind and Atma. The day the man understands that this world is a reflection of God, a playground; he will begin to love God more. You shall also see this miracle if you consolidate your mind.

You should try very hard and make all efforts to know the Truth; never get tired in pursuing it. Trust in yourself and after invoking the God realized Gurus, complete your work fast so that you can finally rest forever and attain bliss as benediction which is beyond the senses. The persons who dedicate themselves wholly in believing and knowing God, they procure a paradise within themselves while they are alive and they do not have to go anywhere else. You all should together make this world a believer in Truth and come in the counting of those people because of whom this world’s welfare is achieved. May God give you Truth in your intellect, may you do truthful actions and may you live in Truth.”

Updates- An intensive discourse of the posts- In Divine moments with Swami Kartikeyan -I, II & III was conducted in Madurai and Palani in the month of November from 10th to 12th.

Some photos and summaries were posted on Facebook  as- Recent event of Spiritinlife Part I on 09.12.17.

These following files are of the discourse of the post held on 10.11.17 in Madurai, Tamil Nadu.

In Divine moments with Swami Kartikeyan-I/

Highlights-

Submission of all worldly desires and removal of all egos in an individual is the stage from where God allows itself to be recognized and emerge. These two delusive states of mind do not allow God to emerge since they erect a wall of opposition between the devotee and God himself. Any want that relates to the delusive and temporary world changes, the state of mind of the seeker of almighty God, since pursuing those desires and substantiating the false self-image in the form of ahankar or ego pulls him out towards the pursuance of those objectives. In this pursuit, the mind goes away from the point where God is realized and understood- and that point is within.

Our manifested lives are a direct shadow of our own created sankalpas or thoughts. Whatever we do with our senses and mind in the physical world as actions are first of all created mentally in an unconscious or conscious state of mind. Conscious state of mind is the one which is aware of God’s presence within and actions are done with that presence. On the contrary, unconscious state of mind is that consciousness of a human being who has made a wall between him and the presence of God in its being with his ego and desires. When all of a sudden the man realizes that his stature is of no significance and God’s all powerful presence is the thing that should not be ignored, the meltdown begins. The ice thaws and starts to melt until a stage when all the ice melts and there stands no wall or door that blocks the startling presence of God in oneself. We all must come at least up to this state of consciousness to avoid the bickering of one’s mind, to escape the milling and beating of the jeevatma’s incessant incarnations as there is no escape.

Direct contact and touch with God’s presence is a must for those who wish to concur and agree in all forms with the Sankalpa or wish of almighty God. God’s wish has so much force, power and energy in it that it is in every sense irrepressible. How can one escape the will of God if one’s own desire has no life of its own? When the vacuum, which is created by the absence of all desires and the deterrent ego falls and crumbles, all the space that is left inside is filled up with just one thing-God’s personal space. Such a space within oneself has the command and directives of the powers of only God and nothing else. From within arise benevolent ideas and noble objectives, which flourish and nourish in masses and have very remarkable consequences on the Earth………

Foot Notes– Please note that my discourses are exclusively for a private audience. There are problems attached to it. We cannot conduct a programme for the masses and to keep privacy, we are compelled to use our own rooms in the hotel as a hall for the small gathering. Also, using banquet halls for a divine purpose is a taboo.

As I conduct discourses in many destinations, it becomes a new challenge every time. We have to face many problems on the spot every time for making videos and audios. But by grace, somehow we always manage to solve all problems in all the events and the outcome is good. All my focus is in delivering a good message and answering all questions related to sadhana of all participants present there as well as the viewers of the blog.

This recording was done in very limited resources yet we succeeded. My gratitude to all Spiritinlife participants for their co-operation and support 24X7 during such a passionate pilgrimage. It shall always be etched in my mind!

May we all be always devoted to a great cause such as Self-Realization!!


Audio of-In blessed moments with Agastya Maharishi-I,II. Bangalore Discourse 15th to 17th Sept, 2017. Part III

November 2, 2017

This is the last set of audios of this series. We did 3 posts. 1. When God wills. 2 What God wants from us and 3. In blessed moments with Agastya Maharishi-I, II.

This is an important audio as it takes us to the higher realm or kingdom of the blazing enlightened Maharishis or very great knowers of the Truth. Though narrative, it still gives very important lesson to humanity-

The worst enemy of man is desire, ichcha. So many rishis also fall in the trap created by deception of one’s mind because of lack of light inside. It is in this sansara or world that man makes mistakes and it is in this world that he returns back again and again to suffer self-created miseries after miseries. Mostly people learn only from making grave mistakes, they do not learn quickly for they are always in a deep slumber…..

Audio of– ‘What God wants from us?’ Bangalore Discourse 15th to 17th Sept, 2017 Part-II.

October 19, 2017

My dear readers, very splendid and special Diwali greetings to you!

Like many previous Diwali days, I have been absorbed completely in the process of compiling a new post.  It is a remembrance and gift to all true seekers on this day; to light the lamp of their Spirit within.

We are still continuing with the series of Bangalore discourses. It was a long-drawn-out Discourse day on which we took up three posts, the last one had two parts. Two from Fb and two parts of a post from Spiritinlife.blog. We had also gone to Manasa Foundation and had group meditation on 17.09.17. On Face book there is a post and the synopses of the same event.

We purchased many valuable books from the book store of that place. We discussed a few things amongst ourselves and found so many similarities between what I have written in my posts here on the blog and what Guruji has been saying in his writings with precision and brevity. I have been reading his other great contributions to the world as books, about the Rishi world and the workings of their constant endeavours to uplift the humanity.

I see great convergence and conjunction points, maybe you will also see it when you study books of Guruji’s personal journey or his research or his path breaking contribution to modern world about higher realities of Spirituality.

When I reached back home on 17th of September from Bangalore after concluding the event, the following day in my meditation I was called again to Manasa on 17th October by Guruji Krishnananda. He had very important things to say to me. I agreed respectfully.

I left very early on Tuesday, 17th October, 2017 on Dhan Teras day and returned multiple times richer and prosperous on that night!

The plan was perfect. There was not a single human there. I meditated alone in his samadhi room for more than an hour. I heard him out attentively and took all personal instructions carefully. There was a purpose, a very big purpose for which he summoned me. Ever since I have returned, he has opened many doors of Higher Realms which I had not known before. Very important past life episodes and connections were revealed by him and his own Guru, Amara Maharishi today early morning. I see a clear image and can very well connect with these two great ancient Maharishis! We have met earlier a few times and now wish to fulfil a very high purpose of life together by working on common projects of human welfare and well-being!

Synergy in invisible form!

This blog takes a huge stride once again and we all are witnessing a huge surge in the spiritual lives of ours!

I just finished reading his very important book-Doorways to Light. I could only get a hold on it after he blessed me on 17th and asked me to read it again. It is his autobiography with pieces of great realisations as a gift to humanity. We only need to look into the priceless wisdom and follow in our life. They have asked me to quote some excerpts from a book which follows soon.

I will never shy from telling the world that Guruji Krishananda and Amara Maharishi, whom I was never acquainted with before in this life have, been from very far watching over me and supplying their mental powers to make me arrive at a life-altering point of my current stage of destiny.

Through some co-incidence in 2012, I for the first time came to know about Guruji but made no effort whatsoever to find him personally. Yet in the last five years, events are automatically being planned and executed by the Higher Forces. I have visited Manasa four times now. Progressively, I have gone into an upper world or higher realm where none are entitled!

I see a perfect plan by God and the Rishis silently working behind this physical realm. I foresee some more benevolent events for the welfare of the world in this conjunction and coincidence. I owe them much more than I have ever thanked them. Yet, they are so unconditionally loving us for unknown, myriad years!

Audio of- What God wants from us?


Audio – ‘When God Wills’ (Bangalore, 15th to 17th Sep 2017 Part – I)

September 30, 2017

Dear revered readers, Bangalore Discourse was concluded on 17th September 2017. 4 posts were taken up for discussion on 16th September in long sessions. First two were from Face book and the rest two were from WordPress. They were-

  1. When God Wills!
  2. What God wants from us?
  3. In blessed moments with Agastya Maharishi-I
  4. In blessed moments with Agastya Maharishi-II

On 17th morning we went to Manasa Foundation, Taponagar for a group meditation after which we all dispersed for our destinations.

Many of us bought enriching books by Guruji Krishnananda from the book shop. They are very useful for the senior as well as junior aspirants.

The audios are about 6 hours in duration. A lot of stress was given on the post ‘When God Wills’ as it demanded a lot of explanation and clarification. Audios of this post are about 4 hours.

There was a brief session of questions and answers.

In November another Discourse and pilgrimage is being undertaken with a large group in Madurai soon.

Before we have another Satsanga or Discourse in November, we will over a month listen to the audio files of Bangalore Discourse. In October starting from today on Dussehra festival, I will intermittently upload 5 files of these 4 posts. In between whenever relevant I would like to insert some passages from the writings of Guruji Krishnananda to fulfil the purpose of synergy and collaboration and thereby radiating higher energies for our rapid evolution.

We will begin today with a short file of introduction and start up. After 2 days there will be second audio file in the same post. There will be a separate post for next post ‘What God wants from us?’ By 30th October we shall have all the audio files of different durations and we shall conclude the Bangalore Discourse.

Side by side, a post of synopses will be shared on Fb with some very calming pictures of Manasa Foundation just after this.

Your comments are valuable for all of us. Please use these posts as Home Lessons and derive as much benefit as you can and expedite your current progress.

Jai Satguru!

1.  Part-1 (30.09.17) 

2. Part-2 (02.10.17)

3.  Part-3 (07.10.17)

Audio-Why is it mandatory to have a Divine Guru-II (11.6.17 Vashi, Navi Mumbai)

August 17, 2017

 

P.S.

17.08.17– Today, intense spiritual energies have been embedded again in these words.

I meditated in early hours. Shri Mahavatar Babaji, Guru Gorakh Nath, a Holy Banyan Tree of Himalayas and a divine holy Rudraksh tree this early hour during Brahma Muhurat appeared before me. The time was too quiet, concentrated and tranquil at 5 am. Their blessings touched me gently and their guidance came to bless us all as I heard the last part of this audio. They advised us to follow this guideline-

Advised-Kindly listen to this audio first on Saturday, 19.08.17 any time in one flow and continuity. Then listen to the last one hour only where questions and answers and last paras of the above mentioned post are recorded between 4 am to 6.30 am for full advantage on Sunday 20. 8.17.

Maintain silence and calmness, maun on these days.

Revert only after full absorption is achieved; take more time till thoughts and precepts get crystallized well.

Jai Satguru!

(Reference-Previous and Present Wisdom from this Post-The state of Super Consciousness-II)

When born, every individual brings with him wisdom acquired by him from his previous lives. That is Previous knowledge or Purva Gyan. And Present knowledge or Vartaman gyan is the wisdom that we are acquiring in our present life.

The wisdom that we have carried forward in this life gets corrupted in the company of worldly, unwise, evil and lethargic people. By coming in constant companionship and interaction, we imbibe obtuseness, vices and impurities. So keep away from evil, vicious, greedy and immoral people. Benefit from the company of learned and wise. Enjoy silence and solitude……

 


Audio – ‘What happens if you submit your mind at the feet of your Holy Master? 4th June’17 Bangalore

August 4, 2017

Discourse on this post in Bangalore on 4th June, 2017

Audio of Discourse

 

Bhajan in MP3 

 

Updates and notice-

Dear all, this post has come after a reasonable gap. However, we were busy in dealing with older posts from WordPress but they were taken up on Fb starting from Guru Purnima on 9th July 2017 and ending on 16th July for a week. They were from Segment-Our lost rich heritage. I chose those posts which were not heeded since the beginning and whoever devoted time to them were blessed and gained so much. In these posts, I included devotional songs here and there which were related to the topic but in the comment box. That eases the strain on the mind and gives us tremendous joy and even spiritual bliss to many. Those who have not yet availed the good opportunity may please do so.

There are many posts as poems posted on Fb which are difficult to decipher and understand. I took up one such post in Bangalore on 4th June 2017 and that explains the reasons why we should heed to our intuition and submit our mana or mind at the Holy Feet of the Spiritual Masters. And what happens after that has also been described in earlier posts like this one-Why is it important to submit the mind at the Lotus Feet of the Holy Master or Guru? (Fb post no 247 in index dated 21.08.16). This post will be dealt with in the upcoming another Bangalore Discourse on 16th Sept, 2017.

At some point of time, I took up a series of bhajans in 2016 between 27.07.16 and 02.08.16. They were 7 in number as Day 1 to Day 7 on Facebook. As the series of bhajans as posts were hard to comprehend, I have explained one such bhajan of Guru Gorakhnath in Bangalore recently. My posts and consequently their explanations are revelations of the sacred science of Moksha wherever they be-Facebook or WordPress. By understanding these posts, the disciple will be assured of the sincerity of this path besides its sacredness.

Besides, there are some posts on Fb which are directed towards me or my grandson but they benefit humanity because in them the Great Ones or the ancient Holy Sages either speak something about themselves which is completely unknown to the world; or they reveal the path of salvation through the sacred words. A few posts are instigated by one of the greatest rishis-Maharishi Kashayapa whose spiritual earnings are way beyond human comprehension and consumption. Today on this auspicious day, on Fb I will consolidate some posts of Maharishi Kashyapa; they shall benefit all those practitioners and seekers who are seriously seeking and wish to help themselves in knowing how we, as a single soul transcend from one point to another and how important it is to know God to mitigate our lingering sorrows. It was directed to my grandchild though but everyone is supposed to learn from these articles. We have just become mere conduits for the sake of revelation, I wish to clarify so that we all focus promptly and seriously as words are very grave and should be heeded.

Apart from a collection of older posts of Maharishi Kashyapa, a new post on Fb today is due. It shall come up as soon as I compose and translate the sacred words which are transmitted to me two days ago in my long meditations. On every 4th August there will be a new post on Fb in this chain of posts. The older posts of previous 4th Aug, of this series will be stringed every year as a pearl of necklace to beautify our souls and minds…..You shall soon see this new pattern of posts on Fb and savour its intensity.

The audio of this Discourse is a little more than 2 hours; it has the explanation of one poetry of Guru Gorakhnath-Bhola Mana Jane Amar meri kaya… to save your time and effort I have pasted the entire post from Fb on WP for your perusal since this bhajan or spiritual rendition was taken up in Bangalore and is very much present in my Talks.

In this way, I have also consolidated the recent Spiritinlife activities through this post about our activities so that the link between the author and the readers is maintained. Kindly be in constant resonance and connection so that you are always empowered with the energies that are endowed through these articles from time to time.

In the end in Bangalore, we all heard the above bhajan in the gathering but the recording of the song was not too clear. Hence, I have inserted 2 versions of the song-MP3 as well as You Tube. You may choose whatever you like the most or avail both. Please get inside the skin of this musical and lyrical composition and partake ‘prasad’ or grace from all the ancient Holy Masters who are very quietly guiding our Spirits in order to free us from the severe karmic bondages which we have created over centuries…..

 

Fb post

What happens if you submit your mind at the feet of your Holy Master?

This world is so inconstant, body so fickle, mind always restless.
The ephemeral nature of this ever shifting sand of desert-world

Will never allow you to rest fully if you do not understand this fact.

 

People come and go incessantly, waste their lives in absolute inessentials.
But never spend time to guard their own interests and become immortals.
They live only for sense pleasures and build structures and satisfy their egos.

 

The puzzle of this never ending delusive world can be cracked by only some.
They are the ones who are totally blessed and blessed by the Almighty God.
They are blessed because they have lived uncountable lives only by God’s will.

 

They are called Gurus or Sadgurus or Avatars or Chiranjeevs or Amar Atma.
They know how to teach someone crack this entrapping and puzzling Maya.
They are under constant God’s commands and always are doing His duties.

 

They will first call you, inspect you, and see what lies beneath your inner core.
The core consists of desires and imprints of all the actions performed in all lives.
They work on removal of those dark spots and untangle knots which create desires.

 

Once the knots are opened, the mind begins to see the facts which are beneficial.
The mind begins to create new actions which are not detrimental and only enhance.
The mind gets peace and rest and the senses begin to rest and the journey begins.

 

A new life starts which gives more time for the upliftment of one’s own Soul welfare.
The senses are slaves, mind servant, body worker and the Soul lifts and soars freely.
It unites with the Universal Consciousness, it permeates into highest Consciousness.

 

It is free from shackles of endless lives’ slavery of moaning fiefdom, mental darkness.
It is always free of unwanted fatigue of exhausting, immoral thoughts and sadness.
It is also free from the load of enjoying the ephemeral pleasures which are later painful.

 

The Holy Masters make you ever free, ever joyous, and ever present in every moment.
The future and past are nullified and each day is lived as a deep gratitude towards Him.
The Soul soars, mind is free and body is always complying since there are no tensions.

These Holy Masters will always guide you quietly and sincerely without your knowledge.
Until one day you wake up and see how hard it is to awaken a dead wood or a sleepy dough.
Once awakened, they shall also become joyous, sincere, one pointed and very concentrated.

 

They will never err again, they will never go back to their original state of drowsiness or laziness.
They will always be in poise and calmness, mind their own business and never feel ungrateful.
Sorrow and pain will never touch them, disease both mental and physical will be at bay invariably.

 

So trust your inner voice, submit your mind at the feet of your Holy Masters, do not disturb your poise.
Come to them with an open mind and a pure heart, they will baptize you, purify you with gentleness.
They will also make you soar like them one day in the everlasting heavenly kingdom of the Heavenly Father!

Translation-

This time related rare Nirguni Bhajan is of Guru Gorakhnath, the disciple of Guru Machandarnath of Northern India sung by Kumar Gandharva again. http://gaana.com/share/titemI699422

The lyrics are-

Bhola mana jaane amar meri kaaya
Dhan re, joban sapne si maya
Badal ki si chhaya

Ek kuan paanch paniyaari
Jal bharti hai nyari nyari

Dat jayega kuan, sookh jayegi kyari
Haath mal mal chali pachon paniyari

Sukha sa kaath bhent nahi chhaya
Kahan tera thausa, kahan teri maya

Baalu ki bheet pavan ka khambha
Deval dekh bhaya achambha

Adi Adinath Machhandar ka poota
Yeh jasa gaave Gorakh Avdhoota

भोला मन जाने अमर मेरी काया I
धन रे, जोबन सपने सी माया II
बादल की सी छाया II

एक कुआँ पाँच पनियारी I
जल भरती है न्यारी न्यारी II

डट जाएगा कुआँ, सूख जाएगी क्यारी I
हाथ मल मल चली पाँचो पानियारी II

सूखा सा काठ भेंट नही छाया I
कहाँ तेरा ठौसा कहाँ तेरी माया II

बालू की भीत पवन का खंभा I
देवल देख भया अचंभा II

आदि आदिनाथ मच्छंदर का पूता I
यह जस गावे गोरख अवधूता II

Translation by each line now-

भोला मन जाने अमर मेरी काया I My naive mind believes that my body is immortal!

धन रे, जोबन सपने सी माया II Wealth and youth are like a dream, it is like a fleeting dream.

बादल की सी छाया II The worldly attainments are like temporary shade of a cloud.

एक कुआँ पाँच पनियारी I There is one well and five women are drawing water from it.

जल भरती है न्यारी न्यारी II And they all fill up water separately.

डट जाएगा कुआँ One day the well will halt, the flower bed will dry up.

हाथ मल मल चली पाँचो पनियरि II And the five water drawing ladies will be high and dry.

सूखा सा काठ भेंट नही छाया I Your dead body will be like wood, it won’t be decorated anymore and it won’t have any shade over it.

कहाँ तेरा ठौसा कहाँ तेरी माया II Where is your bullying, any prestige or worldly power or any glory or money now.

बालू की भीत पवन का खंभा I The walls are made of sand and pillars made of wind.

देवल देख भया अचंभा II When I see this temple I am stupefied.

आदि आदिनाथ मच्छंदर का पूता I Eternal Adinath Machandar’s son I am.

यह जस गावे गोरख अवधूता II Gorakh Avdhoota is singing the praise of his Guru through this poem.

Commentary-

Dear readers, this Nirguni Bhajan is written by Guru Gorakhnath from North India and he is one of the eighteen siddhas of South India also.
Siddhas were yogis, alchemists, mystics, astrologers and healers and or a combination of all these too. Like Swami Kartikeyan, Bogarnathar and Shri Mahavatar Babaji, Guru Gorakhnath went into deep forests of South India to do intense meditation and penance like his Guru Machandranath. Some others in the category of eighteen siddhars or siddhas are Agastya, Thiruvalluvar, Thiromoolar, Kalanginathar and some more mystics and immortal divine souls. Most of their literary work is in poems on palm leaves and are still available in remote Tamil Nadu areas. Their foremost discovery was nadi shodhan or nadi reading, reading the pulse and doing the diagnosis of a diseased body. Ayurveda was born out of the research of these siddars or siddhas.

This particular poem by guru Gorakhnath reveals to us the eternal fact and the hard reality of life. And that is the reality of the ever changing world and the never changing fact of our impending death.
Very beautifully, he describes that ah! how strange is this-my mind is naive because it believes that this body of mine is going to last forever!!
In fact, instead of telling others that you all are going to die one day therefore open your eyes, he is telling himself that his mind is naive and innocent.

He further explains this one point by saying that wealth and youth are not going to last forever since they all are like the temporary shade created by the floating clouds in the sky. The wealth and youth give us temporary means of sustenance and delude us in this way. Similarly, we see dreams in our sleep. They are not real and are made and destroyed in a few moments. This world and our inheritance is like a dream, we cannot hold them for too long. We cannot hold our dreams. The achievements and belongings of this world are alike the dreams and we cannot hold them for too long. They both are very much temporary in nature.

The well is used here to describe our human body in which there is life force. It is made of five senses and the women who are drawing water from it constantly are the five senses in the body. The five senses draw out our life force separately and a day arrives when there is no life force left in the body and the human body is extinguished.
That is a time when the human finally stops and this flower bed (body) dries up since there is no water or life force. At this stage the five senses or women who were drawing water from the body-well leave the body remorsefully one by one.
The body becomes like a dead wood and it has no shade over it or a shelter because no one keeps the dead body at home. And guru Gorakhnath is now asking humanity a valid question and that is-Where is your blustering, bullying or social prestige and wealth?

The walls are made of sand and the pillars are made of wind. When I see this sight I get stunned. Which walls and pillars is Guru Gorakhnath speaking of and why is he so stupefied?
This body-temple is made of sand that is Earth; it comes from earth or anna or food and disintegrates and perishes on earth. The pillars are made of wind. Wind word is used here because wind also means life force or air here. The vasanas or intense lusts and passions are embedded in the human’s life force and like air, the vasana won’t be stable and will travel fast after death into a new body since it has worldly intense desires or vasanas.

The word wind is also used here to compare and say that this body is so temporary and there is no guarantee that it will be stationary. It has no fixed legs or permanent legs to stand on forever.
So Guru Gorakhnath is saying visualize a structure that is made of walls of sand and the pillars of wind. Seeing or imagining such a sight gives him great deal of disbelief and astonishment. He is stupefied. In other words, he is pointing towards us and showing us how ephemeral our body is but we think the reverse. All the people in this world believe that they will never die because they all are so engrossed in living their mundane life and are living in a dream and never think of metaphysical topics.

Guru Gorakhnath’s Master was Guru Machandranath. Gorakhnath is calling himself the son of Guru Machanadarnath and says he is singing the glory of his Guru because the knowledge has been given to him by his Holy Master Machandarnath and that he himself is an Avdhoota which means totally free from all Maya and worldly desires. And he loves to sing his glory……..

Footnote- These bhajans are not only rare but very difficult to decipher and comprehend as well. People can always have their own opinion and meaning but the exact meaning comes only when we can meditate intensely and connect our quiet mind to the soul of the real or original author or poet. Since they too have written the classic poems in deep states of meditation and were in communion with the Supreme or to the Spirit of their own Holy Master, who was guiding his or her thoughts. I too prayed and invoked Guru Gorakhnath to guide me to tell me the exact meaning of his mystical poetic creation.

This is my small offering at His Holy Feet and also to God’s all children who are going to read this lost, ancient, wonderful bhajan or devotional offering.
With gratitude and devotion always.

Sarika


On Guru Purnima-New Light, New Life

July 9, 2017

Dear devotees and readers, today is an important day for us on which we in India, keep aside a lone day in our calendar to invoke and remember the illumined sages. We worship them. We also thank them and offer our heartfelt gratefulness. We renew our pledge to liberate and redeem ourselves from our own created sufferings initiated in the past incarnations, some made now because we lacked focus and awareness.

As this is a very advanced segment, Segment-H ‘Inner Sacred Life of Infinity’, it has only audios and videos. Older posts of Infinity Level have been discoursed through direct interaction in Satsanga or Pravachan or Discourses in Rishikesh in November 2016 and April 2017 and elsewhere. You may please go over these audios and videos in the coming months and get a good grasp over the veiled knowledge of liberation owned by a few solitary immortals, shining gems in the galaxy mysterious to the world.

Posts from this segment are very challenging and cannot be deciphered alone unless a great deal of explanation about the complexities is given in Discourses personally. Furthermore, unless I explain a few important points about the layout of the mammoth blog, readers will not understand the profundity of each post which are so many by now.

Shri Mahavatar Babaji has over uninterrupted long period of time, through mutual mental connections imparted me the supreme knowledge of Moksha and beyond. His own astral Gurus have further added to his given treasury. They have gone still further and revealed to me their procured spiritual knowledge attained with so much penance back in forgotten time. I have documented most of that in Infinity Posts or Anant Gyan in H segment.

They have divided this seamless knowledge into 4 categories as below. Please find an explanatory Tab on the Menu on the Home Page titled-Blog at a Glance & History of past rich heritage. Briefly for your convenience it is,

  1. Blazing knowledge after Moksha termed as-Teevra Gyan. That is labelled as Level 1. There are 3 stages in this level. They are Level 1, 2 & 3.
  2. Very Blazing knowledge termed as Prachand Gyan. There are 3 stages in this level likewise. They are Levels 1, 2 & 3.
  3. Extremely Blazing knowledge called Prabutva Gyan. There are 3 stages in this level like before. They are Level 1, 2 & 3.
  4. Infinity or Anant. This is endless and has no stages or divisions.

The colours used in the representation bands are-yellow, orange, white and blue for Teevra, Prachand, Prabhutva and Anant respectively.

The segment H belongs to explanation primarily of audios and videos of Anant or Infinity posts. Or of L2 or L3 stage of some previous segment of Prachand or Prabhutva Gyan.

There are numerous posts already published since May of year 2008. Most of them are hard to grasp and retain even after understanding on the surface. To first understand these difficult posts and to be able to transfer them in our regular life, we must slow down and look back now. It is important for all of us; it is no mean task to grasp the in-depth and veiled meanings. Therefore, it is not advisable for us to expect a new post on this auspicious day. However, we will not skip the fortunate occasion to invoke our sacred, enlightened Masters and Gurus who have been blessing this masterwork Blog-Spiritinlife since its inception. We will surely seek them, seek forgiveness for all our past misdeeds and ask for grants and boons so that we all lead a humble, pious and virtuous lives in coming years.

On such favorable days, boons specially of salvation and great transformation are always granted. Asking of such boons is restricted to a small number of population. Most of the population fail to understand the importance of a Godly and devout life in modern times. Leaving out a very small population, everyone now a days is hypnotized with material and money’s flash and madness. More humans should turn to God for wisdom and spiritual solace. A few should at least spend all their lives in pursuit of true happiness, harmony and peacefulness. Only after attaining divine virtues, nobility, tranquility and inner lasting peace, we will put our minds to stall and rest and never again entangle it with this devouring and mesmerizing Maya….we must try to go near God as much as we can in this life and at least visualize a new life full of light and purity.

To celebrate this pious occasion, let us dedicate one whole week for our soul’s liberation and removal of our mental, physical woes. There will be 8 posts each day beginning from today Sunday 9th July, lasting till next Sunday 16th July when I will insert an important quote from an old segment from mid way. They will be on Facebook since we cannot have posts other than audios and videos in this segment. But for discussions and question answers, you may please respond in the comment box of that post on WordPress only. In this way, we shall also get enriched from the untouched, intact previous posts.

I take this good opportunity and holy day to also make an announcement. Some years ago, I was really inspired by the sweet voice of my intuition during my daily meditation coming straight out of the Universal Mind of Shri Mahavatar Babaji when he said that one day I must establish a Foundation. He wishes to spread New Life and New Light in this world through this blog. He called it Nav Jeevan, Nav Jyoti. I compressed it and coined it to- Nav Jeevan Jyoti Foundation (NJJF). There is a very interesting cluster of posts from segment New Light New Life.

Excerpts from subsequent post of 3 articles titled New Life, New Light. A foreword before we take a new turn into our future spiritual training on this website…

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………

Today on this auspicious day, I wish to state that the Foundation has become a reality and is functional now. Apart from spreading ancient, lost, sacred knowledge of bygone sages through this blog and discourses, it will also publish books in future. It also has environmental issues on its list like tree plantation, water harvesting as top priority.

I extend my help to all those worshippers, believers and disciples of Shri Mahavatar Babaji and his lineage of Gurus to serve you, help you, advice you and in helping you come out of the deeply buried spiritual ignorance through this blog, posts of Fb as well as through mails.

To accomplish his dreams and aspirations, we seek partnerships, patronage, guidance and information on these issues from all our revered readers from all walks of life. If you wish to contribute in the field of your knowledge, advice as well as support us monetarily in achieving these goals, please write to me on spiritinlife@gmail.com.

Important-Please note, giving your name, place or city, Pan card is mandatory. At this stage, there is no tax exemption of 80 G from Indian Income Tax department and monetary contribution should be only in INR. We are not in a position to accept any contribution in foreign currency at this stage. Thank you.

With eternal gratitude and my humble offerings to all my sacred Gurus,

Sarika
