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!
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-
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.
1. Part-1 (30.09.17)
2. Part-2 (02.10.17)

Who is a Rishi?
A few passages from Doorways to Light by Guruji Krishnananda of Manasa Foundation, Taponagar, Bangalore. (pl ref post of 30.09.17 on Fb about our visit recently)
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.
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……
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…..
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!
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.
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.
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,
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.
Very Blazing knowledge termed as Prachand Gyan. There are 3 stages in this level likewise. They are Levels 1, 2 & 3.
Extremely Blazing knowledge called Prabutva Gyan. There are 3 stages in this level like before. They are Level 1, 2 & 3.
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.
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 email@example.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,

Dear Readers, it is a great day of joy and celebration when we have arrived on this day when Spiritinlife blog is nine years old! What an incredible journey it has been so far!! There are 270 posts today!!!
My most humble pranaam and revered prostrations at the Lotus Feet of all our Gurudevas from Param Pujya Shri Mahavatar Babaji and his own Gurus and param Gurus, Swami Kartikeyan, Bogarnathar and other stalwarts like Guru Gorakh Nath and Swami Shivananda. It is because of them that I was able to achieve the capacity to receive extra ordinary spiritual knowledge in many meditations. And once again from none other than Swami Bogarnathar himself I could be under his tutelage and receive rare knowledge. It was a very unique, trying and grim subject with the title-What is our mind and how is it formed?
Not only this, it was equally if not more, a daunting task to be able to explain and pass on this knowledge to the listeners in Rishikesh Workshop in April a few weeks ago. (Rishikesh Workshop was held on 22nd, 23rd & 24th April 2017) It took a lot of courage from my side to permit myself to speak for the first time in public about my personal anecdotes and experiences of my spiritual life so freely. Or even experiences of how I make these posts and how much more is given to me apart from these nuggets in posts! All this and much more you shall find in my Talks of these three days in Rishikesh posts of 22nd, 23rd and 24th April in a serial. Some videos and audios are not too perfect because of glitch and slow internet speed but please stay on as these are passing phases.
Moreover, for the first time these Talks are in Hindi. I don’t feel any difference in the standard as well as the quality of my Talks by changing over. On the contrary, it shall reach many more people and most of Indians especially the Hindi speaking gentry will get initiated into a subject such as what is ourmind or mana? The challenge was not the language but it was how do I explain in such a brief time such an in-depth and grave subject which was concise yet an ocean of knowledge imparted to me. There were questions & answers also in the gathering and hence the duration of our satsanga or spiritual meetings got extended in spite of me tracking time all the time. The total time of all videos of 3 days is more than 11 hours and a few minutes-one more milestone for all of us!
There are 6 videos and simultaneously 6 audios of the same in these 3 posts. Apart from that, I have also inserted one post as an audio this time in all three posts from Fb and WP to help you understand about these ancient sages with more clarity. They are- i)The Shining Stars in the Galaxy ii) Why is it important to submit our mind at the Holy feet of the master or Guru? And iii) What happens if your submit your mind at the Holy feet of the Master?
((And lastly, it became mandatory to make a complete audio of all audios in each post since the Podcast picks up just the first audio and leaves out the rest unfortunately. Hence that becomes the first audio by default))
Updates There will be a great surge in the energy and speed of the blog since our projects are all time bound. There are many Workshops and meetings now and in coming two years to clear your path to remove your doubts and diffuseness. I also wish to give you a clear picture of what all activities are due and in which place which posts will be explained in Meetings/Workshops.

What’s new? Since this whole segment is primarily of audios and videos, we are introducing Podcast for your convenience so that you can listen to all the audios on your Android phone at your convenience.
You will have to download the App and whenever there is a new post on the blog, it will automatically be saved on your phone. There is a separate post the fourth one today to help you guide step by step how you can download these audios on your phone and listen to them offline. It is called- Podcast, an advantage for seekers for listening to Spiritinlife Audios.
Besides this, there is a tab on the menu on the Home Page of spiritinlife.blog which tells us about all the Workshops that are being held regularly, where and which posts are being tackled. These posts have their links also so the blog is very well designed and organized at this stage for everyone’s convenience. It is updated as soon as one Workshop gets over. Now moving over to this post’s content.
Dear listeners, There is one extra audio added automatically in the posts. This Audio is a long combined audio of other short audios. We did that on purpose, otherwise only the first audio of such posts comes in podcast. It’s a limitation of RSS in WordPress. It picks up only the first audio of a post and ignores rest. So we had to create an audio file which has all audios merged into single file and upload it as first item in such posts with multiple audios)
The Shining Stars in the Galaxy!

A Note-A big thank you to IT team and all other Spiritinlife members for making this day possible. It is their sheer dint of hard work and dedication which has made it possible to upload videos and audios so frequently. And to conduct so many Workshops one after the other with your co-operation and team work! God bless all of you, your efforts are evident!
And one more point I must make. In Rishikesh, there were issues related to internet and electricity. There were power cuts and we still managed somehow to make these videos and audios. In some places during your passage, you will see this effect. Sorry for the inconvenience.
My dear revered readers, there are long gaps in new postings on WordPress. The reason is valid; I am holding quite a few direct conversations and interactions with interested seekers in different cities. I am thoroughly busy with explaining the hidden meanings of my articles to people who come to meet me in my Workshops and sit through the brain storming discourses. The lectures are long, sometime extremely long but it can’t be helped. There are some postings which were very elaborate like the one we discussed in Rishikesh-How to find God in this life-I, II, III. It took us more than twelve hours to go through each line to do the excavation of the Mystic’s lives and attained spiritual knowledge. The audios and videos of the same will be available on 20th May, ’17.
The hard labour and Spiritual achievements of the ancients Seers has been lost in antiquity and people today cannot fathom how people who lived so back in time could have known the facts about God and God’s creation called Maya or Prakriti. Nonetheless, these Rishis have not been forgotten by God as they did prolonged and extensive penance in forests to attain Godhood even when their lives were in danger.
To know about such long forgotten happenings/events today is possible only when God wills. God’s will translates as myriad occurrence in human lives, most of the times undeciphered by common men. However, when we follow the will of God every day in our lives, our lives are bound to change and alleviate our Consciousness and we are enlightened. We begin to get access into the unknown realms or hidden mysteries of life.
The soon to be realized audios and videos in next post on 20th May, 2017 are testimony of that.
Extreme is the word used in this particular Rishikesh Workshop because of three reasons-
Each discourse was very long
It was very deep and intense
It was elaborate.
Despite this, people will not be able to fully follow each and every fact about the long lost and forgotten spiritual knowledge through my previous posts. Hence, I suggest 2 previous short posts from Fb and WP each, for you which will support as well as elaborate the concepts and facts which were disclosed by me in Rishikesh Workshop recently. They are-
In spite of all this, I shall also help many of you through the soon to be held Workshops in Mumbai, Bangalore and Pune between 11th May and 16th June, 2017 to continue my feverish endeavour to go on revealing the lives, times, penance and biography of these ancient Seers and mysteries of God. Apart from these Lectures in Workshops, there will be available for you, all the audios and videos of all the Workshops being conducted henceforth. But that does not mean that you should be complacent!!
The Lectures and discourses shall be spontaneous in nature and shall intermittently divulge my personal communications with the various ancient Seers in my meditations. My intense meditations so many times consist of revelations by these Seers of yore about unknown, hidden laws of God and how God functions and what are the dos and don’ts for we the human beings. This is in addition to prophecies and oracles which are made known to me through these Seers and many times by God. This phenomenon helps me to always walk on the path of Truth as well as show the world ‘The Truth.’
So, when such wonderful anecdotes are happening, it obviously deserves chronicled reporting and documentation. My blogs are those documentation for posterity on WordPress and Facebook!!
Regards and gratitude always.
Some glimpses into making of these posts-
Important summaries for your perusal and recollection-
Dear Ma, if there is any mistake please correct me.
Intuition opens the door to knowledge.
Ma made Sankalpin Rishikesh in one of her past life that she wanted to attain god, knowledge and at the same place, she came as a teacher. Such is the power of good & strong Sankalp. One should always make good and strong Sankalp, which can take us further to God. Sankalp Sakti is so powerful that can create our future accordingly
Ma always faced all challenges and difficulties and that nature made her walk beyond blazing knowledge and reach Anand. Icha saktiis very strong power in us, which should be used wisely and only for good, pure, higher intentions.
One should always hold on to peace & Calmness even during our duties, conversations. Etc. A yogi should always aware about his or her breathe since the Pranaand mind are interconnected.
Humans are the most evolved and most advanced creation of God. Whose brain and Nervous system are very advanced, by which he can experience the creation of God and ultimately reach God.
A true Sannyasin renounces everything mentally. Sadhakneed not to renounce externally to attain God. True Sanyas always is in the mind.
Mind & Manas are two separate and different things. Mind is always referred to the brain and Manaswhich is a part of Atman and the same have 3 segments, Sthool, Sukshma, Karan. The atman is beyond all this.
We all are part of God, We become Jeevatmaand born in this earth to experience the creation of god which made by 5 elements. Slowly it start identifying itself as a separate entity other than God, and more indulged in matter. Many of us have travelled so far from God, and still indulging in the impermanent matter & in each life strengthening the Ahankar more and more.
We have 5 Karmendriyasto do karam oractions in this world and 5 Njanendriyas to perceive the world. Njanendriyas gives the Mind information’s from outside and accordingly mind react, hence it is very important for a Sadhak to control the senses and keep mind always focused on Guru & God.
We are always in debt to the Guru. We cannot repay to Guru, as the Guru gives us the most precious true knowledge of God which is only gained by few, which again take us back to God. Doing Sevais one way to show our Gratitude and love. Relationship of Guru and Disciple is eternal.
My sincere apologies for the delayed response. Please find below my synopsis:
Responsibilities of people listening to this workshop
Relinquish all ego
Live Life by Guru and God’s will
To do unconditional seva to humankind
Who is Chiranjeev – Vo jiska astitva nahi mita sakte hain. Mana aatma ki tarah amar ho jaata hai
Why does human not understand futility of life?
Guru Gorakhnath ji says, “Humans don’t have sense of time”
Why does Guru have to purify Sadhak’s mind?
Mind has many layers. Every thought creates impressions in mind (dense particles)
These dense particles are so tightly packed that there is no space for God’s golden rays to penetrate our mind
Who is Brahmachari?
Someone who has surrendered body and mind to God. He has no mental vibrations at all from mind
His mind has no fear/imaginations
In his/her mind there is only one thing “How can I serve God?”
One portion of Atma is “Manas”. In Manas, changes can come but in “Atma” changes can never come
If we collect water from river in a vessel, then even the smallest drop from vessel is same as water droplet from river. Similarly Jeevatma is a portion of Paramatma
Good Smriti needs nourishment, Ichcha shakti and good company
Keep everyone happy in family – career, relationship, money etc. everything should be in perfect balance
Have self-respect but not ego
Give right amount of time to everyone in family
Simplify life by removing useless people and activities
All systems will automatically fall in place and they will function smoothly
Save time and energy.
Now do Yoga sadhana and Good will bless you!
Do every action in a gentle pace. You have to be calm and composed all through the day. Ma wants you to rise and become a Yogi
Don’t cut other people while they are talking. Wait for them to finish talking and let them take a breath. Then speak up.
Ma, I will strive hard to work on resolutions I shared at the end of workshop
Lots of love,
RISHIKESH WORKSHOP 21.04.2017 TO 26.04.2017
I thank you with deep gratitude for being part of this Workshop. I consider very fortunate and blessed to be in this meet.
My learnings from workshop are as below
Topic -1 – How to Find God in This life – Part I
This topic covers your communion with Param param Sidha Yogi Bogarnathar. They conveyed that they are resurrected by your writings and come alive.
Guru and God want to now know all the great yogi’s who have done lot of penance for many lives in process of achieving spiritual goals and enlightenment.
Mankind is bound by clutches of birth, old age, disease and death. People are repetitively in the same cycle. Just for one temporary happiness he takes numerous life, disease and death cycle. From one’s own death also man is not learning and still ignorant.
We will never be born same again. Nature puts lot of effort to make us.
To go all out for permanent cause i.e, Go into inner depth of our mind to contact God
Meditate under any circumstances as this will help us differentiate temporary happiness and permanent happiness.
Topic -2 – How to Find God in This life – Part II
Continuation of communion with Sidha Yogi Bogarnathar who has done thorough research on the formation of mind
Explanation about three states of human mind built over many years- conscious mind, sub conscious mind and unconscious mind.
Mind is composed of matter and spirit. Our mind is full of dense matter which is accumulated through many life cycles and eventually forms thick curtain where light of God does not reach i.e, access to our spirit.
Ego is settled in the innermost mind i.e, it is there in unconscious mind and it does not leave. This can be removed only Guru.
As and when our matter in mind starts melting, divine light reaches and charges every cell of our brain. Charge keeps on increasing as and when our God communion is continued.
Disease first comes in mind and then in body.
Run our life by Godly principles and live life by will of God. Everything will be taken care.
Action to be taken
Bring revolution within
Emit peaceful and loving vibrations
Help and serve.
Topic -3 – How to Find God in This life – Part III
Explanation about difference between brain and mind . Brain is in physical body and mind is in subtle body. Mind is made of food and thought.
Heart and brain has lot of energy. Healthy, impactful and influencing mind is because of thought power. Brain is developed with good food, nutrition and exercise
Aura and personality of person is because of the energy of mind.
Mind can change but Atma does not change
Intellect ( power of reasoning ) and memory is also part of Subtle component – Mind. Huge data is stored in the mind. We have to organize proper mind file storage.
Quality of memory- Fragile, mediocre and Grave. Knowledge we get is engraved through proper exercise, nourishment and Will power. Mind gives electrical command to the brain and decides by will power that it wants to do certain action.
Don’t eat wrong food, not to be in wrong association.
Remove junk from mind space to store new information
At the end of workshop my sankalpa is I serve spirit in life whole heartedly as this is the way I can understand / work on serving my higher purpose of life.
I will work / aid / involve in activities in conserving earth.
My pranams and deep gratitude to you for all teachings.
