A Voyage to Eternity- a pilgrimage to Shri Mahavatar Babaji’s Ashram at Badrinath

Thanksgiving and gratitude towards my beloved, most venerated, holy and Divine Guru

How many of us believe what was once our strongest desire will be fulfilled one day by merciful God?

And if you think you are that somebody who has faith and conviction in what I just said, then I can assure you that your sacred beliefs will also be supported and rewarded by the omnipresent, all pervading silent God someday. God waits silently till eternity for us to come up with some powerful, dynamic and selfless thoughts so that they can be materialized on the physical plane at the appropriate time and season. God is a silent observer, a seer, a spectator and non -doer of any action yet He will always respond to our innermost consecrated desires.

Our mind or manas is everything. If we harbour holy, unselfish thoughts and preserve them long enough, cherish them day and night, never forget what we had desired is imminent to occur and unfold one day. It is true when all the important decisions taken on our spiritual path without ego will bear fruit and blossom with the grace of God. If the devotee’s desires are born out of pure love and thankfulness, then God shall concede and be appeased with His children.

We have no idea or any notion at all as to how indebted we become to our blessed Masters who remove us from the forbidden path and reinstate us progressively with time little by little on the path of purity, love and benevolence-that is the path of God. If you have comprehended what I am trying to get at, then you shall be able to grasp when I tell you that since the past more than nine years or so, I have been constantly musing, dreaming, brooding, ruminating, contemplating and uninterruptedly reinforcing my desire very staunchly to meet Shri Mahavatar Babaji in person in the Himalayas because I want to touch His Lotus Feet as a gesture of profound gratitude for everything that He has done for me since I can reminisce.  I am so very deeply indebted to Him, my heart at all times tells me and my soul confirms that.

My desire emerged and arose like a thick unflagging, undeviating, shiny flame of a lamp since the time I discovered in 2002 in meditation that I have known revered Babaji even before this birth; indeed it has been a very long journey!  When I was born this time, he held me gently in his hands in the hospital with tears rolling down from his eyes on his face.  I saw him sobbing agonizingly when he said to me, “My daughter (beti) why did you plead vehemently with stubbornness to God before you were born to give you salvation in this life. It was due after four incarnations. This life of yours   is bound to be extremely difficult and challenging, how will you bear the heavy load of all your karmas my child?”

Whenever I recall and open this section of my memory, each time my heart swells up with soft, sentimental tears of thankfulness and gratitude. Who can love you so much? So, so much…..? Isn’t this love weighed down with an ocean of compassion? I wonder if I have ever been loved so much in the most unselfish manner  by anyone before, not at least by ordinary human beings. My heart chokes with helplessness because I know I cannot ever return such celestial love in any measure to him; I am too small.   I still don’t know what I can do for our Babaji as he is an embodiment of highest altruistic love for his children. I can only reciprocate in a manner that a true and sincere aspirant and a devotee does. Hence, I decided to meet him in person so that I could tell him that although he has been speaking to me on the cosmological plane via mental communication with telepathy and intuition; and that I have been thanking him all the time, still I want to tell him personally on the physical plane how much I owe him for what he has made me today. I plainly and simply want to thank him and express my gratitude myself by touching his sacred feet once at least in this life!!

Somewhere around this time God has heard me and the mere desire converted into a feverish passion.

In May of 2005, I made an unsuccessful trip to Badrinath.  I had read from “Autobiography of a Yogi’ and from somewhere else also when I came to Mumbai that his abode was in the Himalayas near Badrinath in the caves and so I set out to search him randomly. It was there on the overwhelming glaciers and awesome mountains when I was trekking with fake and untrained  guides and weak porters that I realized that I was totally unfit and unprepared in every sense  to meet Mahavatar Babaji in person. It was just not possible. I returned home completely heartbroken yet I did not let my dream die off in vain, it was still simmering and alive.

If I had to fulfil my dream which God had granted, I had to be physically fit and mentally rock-solid. So I began to rebuild my body with rigorous physical exercises and began to meditate every day with devotion and love. I went to many pilgrimages in these years which were arduous. I gave up all the activities which were not in line with my mission and whenever I found it difficult to steer clear the impediments, physical or mental whatever they were, I reminded myself that if I want to see Mahavatar Babaji one day, I should stand all this with a smile. When I have walked on the treadmill and the body revolted, I have imagined myself that I am trekking in the Himalayas so that I can reach the abode of my Babaji.

I was most hesitant to share my exclusive spiritual experiences yet I accepted Babaji’s wish as a Grace and blessing from him when he asked me to start a blog and have a space of my own in the web world….. More lessons and divine perceptions were imparted to me by my Great Gurus like Paramhansa Yogananda, Swami Nityananda and Swami Dayananda Shaligram of Ganeshpuri, Divine Mother and Sri Aurobindo of Pondicherry and so many more teachers. Babaji sent me to them to be tutored and trained either in their Ashrams or to their holy places or they appeared in my mental space during meditations. So I began to blog taking his command as his ashirwad a blessing, yet having no clue what I can write for the world. I was totally overwhelmed in the first two years or so by the internet’s far flung connectivity and reach and felt abashed exploring and sharing my inner, very reticent spiritual world through my posts which arrived regularly without any long breaks each more direct and revealing than the previous. Prior to this, I had bare minimal knowledge of computer usage, nonetheless I would spend some thirty to sixty minutes every day to get a hang of this modern  technology. I admired myself for the first time for the fact that although I may be a late bloomer, at least I had arrived!!! I took my blog writing as a discipline and sadhana given by my Master so that one day, I could meet him, speak to him and ask him to bless me by putting his divine hand over my shoulder and head if I deserved it and have earned it !!!

I have learnt photography for him. I had never taken any photos before I went to Kailash Mansarovar Yatra in 2010 because others in the family were taking mine all the time. I went there alone without any family member and joined a troupe. The pilgrimage was undertaken believing that I will someday  go to Badrinath cave where Babaji lives even today. It took me two years to be confident of taking photographs seriously with an advanced camera. I think the blog has got more interesting since more pictures began to be uploaded. Blogging, travelling and photography are going on side by side now thus improving my artistic skills and satisfying my creative urges.

What is it so special about this pilgrimage?

All the devotees who are worshipping  Shri Mahavatar Babaji, the greatest of all gurus, do not have a picture of him as he is very reclusive. It was only in the ‘Autobiography of a Yogi’ that Shri Paramhansa Yogananda displayed a sketch made by his brother Sananda Ghosh, who was an artist (Read Mejda authored by him) This is the only authentic sketch or drawing we have of Babaji which we are worshipping today.

I pray to God humbly that Babaji should allow us to have a real picture of his so that we can worship him in his real form.

055

I had mentioned in ‘The state of Super Consciousness-II’ that Shri Mahavatar Babaji will appear in public life in the year 2053 in the World Congress of Religions. This blog and his real  photo will stand a testimony to his true identity at that time. His worldwide mission will go on, whatever I am doing is not even a tiny drop  in the ocean but I take my sadhana of blogging,  meditation and guiding others who wish to be advised or instructed  as my service and a token of gratitude to my Param Pujya Param Guru Shri Mahavatar Babaji.

Babaji’s main mission as I have mentioned a couple of times earlier, is to change the time cycle- from Kaliyug to Satya Yug, from the Age of modernity to the Age of Truth. A new race, a new human mind and a new approach to the age old problems of humanity needs to be undertaken. Keeping these aims in mind, he asked me to write on subjects that dealt with reincarnation, death and how should we  die and reborn. If more and more young expectant parents invoke divine souls and if they lead a morally high and a pious life, then the wheel of time from bad to good should be much easier for the human race.

I humbly request those readers who have been quietly reading this blog from time to time and have not yet made their commitment towards Babaji or me, they should  at least express their thankfulness to  Shri Mahavatarji  so that they do not transgress the God laid norms and rules and suffer in future in many ways.

Spiritinlife blog is not mine; it was initiated by Mahavatar Babaji and has the inspirations, contributions and spiritual wealth of many, many other sages, seers, saints and illumined souls. Please do not understate or underestimate this fact  when I tell you that you are indebted to this blog and all the other higher divine souls for the reason that they have worked on me day and night without a single day and have prepared me for the day when I could be ready for the biggest event of my life- to meet Mahavatar Babaji face to face. They all have groomed me, coached me and have given me a new mind in a new body!!! The blog has become a conduit between them and you. They all deserve your worshipping, adoration, love, goodwill and devotion.

Certainly if someone benefits  tremendously then that person should express and show gratitude by humility, service and thanksgiving in various  ways.

This is a timely advice to all those devotees and aspirants who wish to come across stimulating and inspiring spiritual experiences ahead in future. However, you may act as per your own judgement and individual understanding and the freedom to think and act is yours. Had it not been for the advice given by my revered Master, I would never have made you know even this. It is a difficult job to instruct, teach someone the basics of spiritual education or to change one’s destiny by mutely decoding the spiritual laws and by peeping into their past lives without the disciple’s knowledge at all. But all the good things are possible  provided the disciple yearns for it and obeys the guidelines and directives with reverence and faith given by the spiritual teachers.

And please, also know that if you fail to obey those imparted divine instructions within the stipulated time period, you shall lose out the auspicious and favourable time of your destiny when you shall gain the most. Therefore, be on guard  and abide by the teachings, orders and directives sent out either by your mentor or your Guru, you shall succeed in every endeavour of yours on the spiritual path and someday have Self Realization and your  soul will be one with the Divine.

Dear readers, I have now lost count of the visits that I have made to the numerous ancient as well recent holy sites in India which were at the behest and direction of my gurus since I was initiated by them in the year 2001 officially. My visits and travelling to the ancient heritage sites starting from Kanhangad in Kerala in Nov 2011 to the last one in March to Khajuraho was planned by them with the idea of giving me total confidence in photography and blogging and making me proficient in these two areas for the biggest event.   And to acclimatize myself and make good arrangements for my visit to Satopanth where Babaji’s caves are located, I visited Shri Badrinath temple and Mana village in the Himalayas in May recently. And as I was travelling, I was blogging as well as shooting pictures. And now the time has come for all these trips to get me ready to meet Babaji in person.

It was on 15th Aug 2008 when I was remembering Sri Aurobindo on his birth anniversary during meditation to bless me when he responded in a rare opportunity. He very explicitly advised me. “Have nerves of steel if you want to realize God.  You will visit the abode of Shri Babaji at the exact time and on 15th August after just a few years you will meet him  in person.” I was quite perplexed when I heard him say this to me because sometimes I would feel that each year is just passing by and Babaji is not calling me yet. Will it really happen? Are my body and mind not yet fit enough? Will they ever become strong enough to brave the strong winds, rough  weather and living in auterity with very basic facilities found in the terrains of the mountains in Himalayas?

15th Aug is a special day for India. It is her Independence day. Sri Aurobindo who was earlier a freedom fighter and then became a spiritual giant, was also born on this day. And the blessing that he has given me four years ago is about to become a reality when on 15th August 2012, I shall at last be in the holy company of Shri Mahavatar Babaji in his cave with the band of all his disciples and Shri Mataji, his divine younger sister.

So all my dear ones, I have shared this piece of information with all of you because it is the will of God that all the disciples, followers and devotees of Shri Babaji  who are seeking his spiritual counsel, love, light, divine essence and blessings should think of him fervently and dedicate that day in his honour and pay homage to him in every possible manner. Put your mind on him throughout that day, pray to him, chant his name, meditate on his holy figure and wherever you are, seek his divine love and bliss. Ask for forgiveness, ask for transformation of your nature, ask for love, kindness and compassion and ask for salvation of your soul from the cycle of unending life and death. Pray to him that you become a channel in his worldwide global mission, ask him to give you the moral and spiritual strength for doing penance to uplift your soul for higher divine consciousness and ask for mercy for all your wrongdoings.

Some of you should plead that he accepts your request to spread his teachings and many of you should request him to use your body, mind and resources to make our planet green.

Those of you who are about to start a family of their own may request him to send you pure souls as your children so that you can do their seva first and in the long run, those pure souls may serve Mother Earth, Gurus and God in manifolds. All the posts that I have written regarding raising our ordinary consciousness to Super Consciousness should be implemented in our lives in some or the other way. By serving our planet, we will be serving God and our Gurus. As I have mentioned several times in my posts what our dearest Babaji insists that the best way to serve God is to serve his children. God is most pleased with us when we serve our fellow brothers unselfishly and dedicate all our karmas at the altar of God.

Friends, I wish to now wrap up my post with a silent prayer at the twilight hour when my room is afloat with the enchanting smell of jasmine essence and  delightful lamp that may God and my Gurus bless you all as they have blessed me so profusely! May they always light up your spiritual path as they have done mine and may they fill your lap with countless blessings and sacred ancient spiritual teachings and insights as they have bestowed upon me so graciously !  And may your mind be sparked with brilliant rays of divine illumination with the grace of Supreme Thee!!

Footnote.– A Meditation technique

Only today morning, that is on 10th July early morning, Shri Babaji asked me to meditate with this technique which gave me tremendous energy and a wide opening in the astral skies of the mind. He also directed me that I should inform everyone that on the coming 15th Aug at 7 a. m, we should meditate in this method and do collective meditation.

  • Sit in a comfortable position after making your body and mind calm.
  • Close your eyes very gently.
  • Inhale and exhale deeply till you feel your breath has calmed down.
  • Focus your attention at the third eye by bringing your gaze gently to the point between the eyebrows.
  • Keep your consciousness steady there.
  • Imagine a picture of Shri Babaji at this place. Concentrate on it.
  • Some may see blazing light either before or after the image of Shri Babaji, concentrate on it. One may also hear or see Om, the first sound created by the Divine . Absorb that.
  • Feel that divine light permeating within you, around you.
  • After some time, revolve and move this light over your spine as many times as you are comfortable with thus recharging yourself by cleansing your mind and body.
  • And finally bring back this light at the point between your eye brows or kutastha.
  • Relax completely and sit in this posture as long as you like.
  • Practise this meditation daily with reverence and love.

  1. It has been said that prayer is talking to God
    and meditation is listening to God.
    The following may be useful to you.
    It is a road map of sorts.

    If you would know thy Maker,
    provide then for yourself a place of least distractions.
    Beyond that,
    you need only your purist yearning,
    for the journey to your Father is a path already laid
    and merely forgotten.

    Father,
    I seek again thy face,
    but they say “no man has seen the Father.”
    I would say perhaps I am No Man, for am I not begotten of Thy Spirit?
    Within Thy Divine Vision am I not the son of Your Thought?
    And my soul, the Light from your Heart?
    Therefore, my Father,
    I travel within the planes of Earth and I see and hear You not.
    For I have accepted the Veil of matter,
    and I know
    all such doors and blocks within me, that hide me from Your face and voice,
    are of my own making and of my choosing.
    But now, so does my heart long for the Garden of Our Spirit,
    and as Your son (or daughter),
    I ask Thee to remove the doors of my own making that lie between us.
    You know what they are.
    Though I cannot see, I know Your eye is clear and now upon me.
    Take then my illusions, for I seek the Garden of Thy Spirit
    from which issues forth my Soul as the Blossoming Light of Thy Presence.
    So do I surrender my darkness into Thy Light,
    my blindness into Thy Sight.
    And here from the deepest longing in my heart
    comes the knowing of my truth.
    Thou art the Light and Life of my soul
    and surely it is true,
    I am no man . . .
    for “I and my Father are One.”

      Namaste James, thanks for your very quick response on this post. Looks like you are in a flow these days and are contemplating a lot on spiritual matters. Kindly introduce yourself so that we can share our insights more easily. Regards Sarika

    • spiritinlife says:

      Mandira, if you wish to be truly successful in life, then do actions as per the guidance and instructions of the divine gurus. Dedicate your life for a cause as big as the Earth and if you are seeking true happiness, then dedicate all the fruit of your karmas to God, you will find immense peace and bliss. Remember this always. With all my blessings and love to you, Yours Ma

    I thnk you very much for sharing your spiritual experiences and knowledge with everybody

    with love

    • spiritinlife says:

      Thanks Chandana, I look forward to hear from you more often. With divine love from God and Gurus. Sarika

    • spiritinlife says:

      Dear Chandana, please be careful what you express here child. Issues concerning personal life should be discussed separately as it is better for us to keep something within ourselves because they are sacred enough and cannot be shared with everybody. You may in future write on spiritinlife@gmail.com and whenever I can, I shall respond to you in a relaxed manner. Please take care and stay well.
      Sarika

  3. Wowwwww…..No words Amma…

    Such delicate matters being revealed for the first time from You. Lots of hard work behind the scenes for such a lovely event though. Speaks volumes of your grit, determination and persistence to realize the Ultimate.

    I am so very fortunate to follow this blog and get in touch with you. It truly is a delight reading this post. Mahavatar Babaji is such a compassionate Master that he has allowed You to share even this piece of information which in reality is a very sacred spiritual experience.

    My humble pranams at your feet and The Great Babaji’s as well. Please convey my regards to HIM when you meet HIM personally.
    (:-).

    You are doing the unthinkable, which is meeting HIM personally. This is undoubtedly the best post from the inception of this Blog.

    I will stay in touch with you, as always

    Regards,
    Rajeev

    • spiritinlife says:

      My dear son Rajeev, You are a blessed soul and child of God because your heart has tremendous love for a Divine Guru, may God bless you with everything beautiful and pious.
      I must admit that the last many months have been extremely tiring and trying for you and the Guru was tough with you but you must still carry on because the ultimate picture will be awesome; wait till that happens. In the post The process of liberation recall -shreyas and preyas actions. The merciful Guru will opt for shreyas for us because he wants the best for us and wants to deliver us from delusion….while we wish for short term good things-preyas.
      I am proud of you that your faith and love in me and Shri Mahavatarji has not dwindled in the lean and trying times, in fact it has grown deeper and we have got to know each other better. The Holy Master’s depth is depthless, no wonder I always yearn to get a close glimpse of him because knowing and coming in close contact with him is so blissful, it is relieving also because bit by bit our delusion gets loosened up. So in future, cling to Guru’s advice, don’t drift, follow his divine counsel and you shall be liberated of all the past wrongdoings. All is not lost, this is just the beginning of a wonderful journey to Eternity…..
      Your pranam will be conveyed, my delight.
      May God always be with you now and forever
      With lots of love always
      Amma

    May you be safe on this journey and have your catharsis and equilogue at your Fathers feet. My humble pranams to you and Babaji.

    Love,
    Meena

    • spiritinlife says:

      Thanks Meena, I am sure that as I will be travelling and trekking towards Shri Babaji’s abode in August, you shall be with me mentally. I know that I will be stupefied at that historic moment when I will see Him atlast…… I don’t know if I will be able to even speak a word to Him, but He will understand in spite of that… With lots of love to you wherever you are….Sarika

  5. You are indeed so blessed to be making this wonderful yatra to the holy abode of the SriGuru and i just cannot wait for you write about your wonderful experiences of this yatra and share all the beautiful pictures. Please convey our humble pranams to our Guru when you do meet Him and tell Him that we are all yearning for His love and are ready to do His work for the upliftment of mankind. I have started on the latest meditation technique given by the Guru on 10th July and I do hope to benefit from it. Loves to you forever and ever.

    • spiritinlife says:

      Thanks Vijaylaksmi for reponding to the latest blogpost.I will surely convey your devotional feelings to Shri Mahavatar Babaji. May you benefit a lot from this blog and please do stay in touch. Rgds Sarika

I will definitely stay in touch with you. may you have a safe journey and truly wonderful experiences. How I wish i was going along with you too.

  6. Hello Aunty,

    Since the time this post came up ,I was giving unsuccessful attempts to read it,whenever I opened this webpage I was called for some other work, finally today I thought this is the time and I have to read it at any cost and now I realized that it was destined for me to absorb it today as a very special birthday gift. Thank you Aunty, I feel indebted to you for everything.Each and every word on this blog taught me something. It is surely a blessing not in disguise that so many pure, elevated souls are guiding us through spirit in life blog. I have no words to thank Shri Shri Mahavtar Babaji and my Gurudev to bring me here, a true scared pilgrimage.

    Love

    Your life is a pilgrimage.God’s Blessings and Divine Deva’s and Divine Mother’s blessings will always be with you.

    • spiritinlife says:

      Please Atul, all this was never possible had you not had the faith and devotion you have for the holy Gurus. You are very supportive in whatever I wish to do on this spiritual path and therefore you also deserve a lot of appreciation and thankfulness for being a part of this huge mission and trip to our Babaji’s dwar(door) in the Himalayas. May God bless you with health, peace and prosperity. Sarika

    Dearest sarika Amma
    Each time I call god or babaji with yearning he responds. This time I Came across this wonderful blog!
    There is another picture of babaji which is an image drawn I think by the priest of badrinath and is there in the book apprenticed to the Himalayan master written by Sri M.
    I don’t know whether I should thank my gurus or you for this blog. It will help me as I stumble along the path to God.
    Lata

    • spiritinlife says:

      Dear Lata, I respond with great satisfaction that you have found this blog and its contents useful for your spiritual pursuits. I believe it when you say that Babaji has been an answer to your prayers. May god bless you on your beautiful spiritual journey.
      I was only aware of Shri Paramhansa Yogananda’s first sketch as well as reference of holy Babaji and you have introduced me to some one else also who has the image drawn of our Babaji. Thanks for informing about it.
      I am replying to all your comments separately now. Sarika

      • Lata says:

        Thank you so much for replying. I have no words left.

        • spiritinlife says:

          Thank you Lata for all the images that you have sent me today through ipad providing me more information about Babaji’s other disciples. I was not aware about Sri M and his book about our holy Babaji until you told me. Maybe one day I will get to see and read his book. It should be good, I would love to do that.
          Stay in touch. Sarika

  9. Shahid says:

    It was very pleasant to start reading this God gifted Blog post seeing the Initial picture of Divine sandals of Beloved Babaji 🙂

    It’s amazing to read that you have been waiting to see Babaji for 9 years now. Wow, what focus and dedication !!

    I also prayed to Babaji before reading this blog that all sincere spiritual seekers should have his Genuine photo soon.

    What you write here I have read before but just pasting again as a reminder to myself –” what our dearest Babaji insists that the best way to serve God is to serve his children. God is most pleased with us when we serve our fellow brothers unselfishly and dedicate all our karmas at the altar of God. “.

    Wouldn’t it be great if Babaji handed over to you Sarikaji
    a guided meditation CD or anything else in his divine voice
    when you finally see him ? It would benefit so many
    around the world.

    Thank you Babaji for the meditation technique 🙂

    LOVE YOU Babaji.
    THANK YOU Babaji .

  10. spiritinlife says:

    If the inner sincere voice of genuine seekers reach our Babaji, he would not hesitate to do anything for his children, it could be his taped and recorded message to the world or his photo or a meditation technique- keep praying in your heart! It might materialize soon…..

  11. Monika says:

    Dear Sarika
    About the pictures of Sri Mahavatar Babaji – I would like to share with you, what I once found online (actually, it was on the very same day, I had stumbled upon your blog). These are paintings of an artist Jane Adams (two of Babaji plus one of Budda): http://janeadamsart.wordpress.com/2012/07/19/sages/
    I just love this picture of Him! I don’t know, why she made His eyes green (maybe she wanted to express the light in the eyes this way?), but it seems to me, that she greatly pictured all the ethereal charm, that He emanates..
    And the young Babaji is lovely too 🙂

    greetings
    M.

    • spiritinlife says:

      Dear Monika, thanks for introducing Jane’s blog and the portrait of our dear Babaji. Even before I could reply to you, Jane has come forward to explain the reason behind colouring Babaji’s eyes green. By doing so, she received therapy for personal problems. As long as we get over our present or past karmic dark impressions, it is ok. Babaji is omnipresent, who so ever invokes him, he responds in his own very peculiar ways and we recieve some blessings, healings and solutions.
      Anyway, thanks for responding dear.
      Love
      Sarika

  12. janeadamsart says:

    Dear Monika and Sarika
    I knew when I did this painting of Sri Babaji some years ago (see above comment), that His eyes are dark; yet an inner sense on this occasion left them green, like water. I decided to leave it so. There was a very deep pain in my life on that day, so there were tears. Through the painting, I called upon His grace and truth to help me: He seemed to express all things, and the healing light coming through, was green, like the light eyes of some north Indians; it spoke. I am very touched that you found and loved this portrait. It meant a lot to me.

    I am also delighted to have come across your blog and your message in this way.
    Namaste, from Jane

    • spiritinlife says:

      Namaste dear Jane, what lovely portraits you make! I am glad I was introduced to your blog which I shall visit ocassionally and imbibe all the nice things that are out there.
      I really liked Babaji’s portrait. The expression of the face is serene and so are the eyes. Even the one about peace with lotus and Babaji is exceptional. Buddha’s expression is so full of compassion. Great work Jane, very, very nice. Thanks for showing your work and hobby to all the other interested people.

    • Monika says:

      Dear Jane
      What a surprise that you responded here 🙂
      So now it’s all clear about the eyes. They are beautiful anyway.
      Congratulations on your talent. I would try and draw His picture myself, if I only had at least a fraction of a talent like yours…

      greetings
      M.

    This is such an amazing post , Amma. I came back to read it, quite by chance. I find so many things in it that I need to make note of and learn. Wow.

  15. Shahid says:

    ” When I was born this time, he held me gently in his hands in the hospital with tears rolling down from his eyes on his face. I saw him sobbing agonizingly when he said to me, “My daughter (beti) why did you plead vehemently with stubbornness to God before you were born to give you salvation in this life. It was due after four incarnations. This life of yours is bound to be extremely difficult and challenging, how will you bear the heavy load of all your karmas my child?”

    Whenever I recall and open this section of my memory, each time my heart swells up with soft, sentimental tears of thankfulness and gratitude. Who can love you so much? So, so much…..? ”

    Sigh….Only if I could also feel this tremendous LOVE of
    Shri Babaji.

    Oh Beloved Babaji, Please talk to me, please reveal yourself to me
    so that there is no more confusion, tension, worries and so that I don’t need to go to anybody else for solutions to my problems.

    Happy Ganesh Chaturthi (Sept 9, 2013) to you Pyare Babaji and to everyone else in your holy ashram ❤

      Hi Shahid,

      Your comment is really touching. Happy Ganesh utsav to you.
      May god remove all of our darkness and fill our heats with his divine light forever.

      Regards,
      Shilpa

      • Shahid says:

        Dear Shilpaji, That comment you liked you so much is by Sarika mom and not by me 🙂 Anyways thank you for taking the time to post your comment and wishing you the best in life always.

  16. Shilpa says:

    Dear Sarika ji,

    Thanks a lot for this post. This is very meaningful for me as I also want to meet Babaji and your preparations aspire me to prepare myself. Have you met Babaji in person?

    Lots of Love to you, and please convey my deepest gratitude and love to our dearest Babaji.

    Warm Regards,
    Shilpa

  17. Himanshu says:

    I reached your blog while searching for Babaji’s address. Please tell how to meet him?

    • spiritinlife says:

      Dear Himanshu, read your mail to me and also your comment here. Please do not ask this question like so many have done earlier to me- that you want to meet Babaji in person.
      Please ask what it takes to become eligible to be able to meet Him in person and start your sadhana today.
      Rest when you read a few articles. Respond when you are ready to do the tapas and take hardships to be worthy of meeting Him.
      Please note that I do not charge any money for any prayers. All this is my seva towards my sweet Sadguru and whatever I have offered Him is zero if compared to what He has given me- the knowledge of liberation which I have documented in this blog. So be wise and begin to pick all the gems that are hidden here and start a new life……
      Sarika

      • Himanshu says:

        My obeisance to you,

        Thanks for your reply.

        I asked how to meet him because I’m looking for general guidance that how to do at each moment what’s most beneficial to do.

        What it takes to become eligible to be able to meet Him in person?

        Please tell how did you start hearing God and Babaji. How I can start hearing any of them? How long will it take?

        • spiritinlife says:

          Dear Himanshu, welcome back with wiser thoughts and right approach towards yourself and your methodology of attaining Godhood!
          First thing first- It is not necessary for somebody to first meet Babaji and then get enlightened. First priority should be to attain complete stillness of mind and senses to enable you to connect your individual mind with His Supreme mind.
          Read Kundalini Shakti I and II to understand how the brain and the spine needs to be refined, cleaned and electrified with Yoga and right food to get ready for ‘Brahma Prakash’. Our oldest memory of us as Brahma should be reactivated. First come up to this stage after which the finer nerves are activated and made strong over years to hear even the slightest whisper of mental thoughts of Holy Babaji sitting thousands of kilometres away in Himalayas.It can be heard with the inner subtle hearing or inner ear.
          What should I do and what I should avoid is the beginning stage from where you should start. So silence your mind and have devotion towards God and our Guru Maharaj. Over the time, the ego or little self will slowly die with Guru Kripa and little by little you will see that all doubts have evaporated.
          Read more articles slowly one by one on this blog which will automatically calm your mind and you will get all your answers here.
          Complete peace and harmony and blessings from Guru Shri Mahavatar Bababji can never be achieved until we do tapas. So think more, learn more from this blog and focus on your goal…..
          Sarika

    Respected Sarikaji,
    I ve been following this blog for sometime. Pardon me for refraining from posting a comment.
    This is a SAMHITHA OF SPIRITUAL SCIENCE. PRANAMAM AT THE LOTUS FEET OF SHREE SHREE MAHAVATHAR BABAJI WHERE YOU ALSO ARE THERE!!!
    i can see my mental and intellectual culture is changing after i began to follow this wonderful blog.
    Praying for blessings
    Suresh

    • spiritinlife says:

      Dear Suresh, Very glad to hear from you and you are indeed a blessed soul if you have sensed the mild sweet fragrance that floats here invisibly within the words and the soul knows and says that this is it!
      This is surely Samhita of Spiritual science and we are definitely infinitely indebted to Shri Mahavatar Babaji to have openly revealed so generously the science of liberation of a suffering soul which was kept a secret since Man was born and the rishis imparted seldom to just the chosen few.
      May God bless you ever more so that you have the inner sight and Light to understand this sacred science which has been narrated and explained with extremely simple words and freshness of morning dew……….
      Sarika

  19. Shahid says:

    MERRY CHRISTMAS to God, beloved Babaji, All the Holy Masters and Sarika mom 🙂

    THANK YOU for this Gem of a Blog.

    Pls help me completely surrender at your feet Babaji.
    Pls use my body,mind to serve you and God while I am
    here on Earth plane.
    Pls lead me to Moksha and beyond in this lifetime.
    Pls use me to bring about positive changes in this world
    and the company I am working in, so that Heaven on earth
    can be created asap.

  24. midhunpk210m says:

    no idea what to write here, mind became calm and meditative mood.

    thanks a lot to you..really mean it.

    bow at gurus lotus feet,

    pranam at your feet mother..i am blessed.

  25. pandey2 says:

    Maa, i have read this post many times and every reading gives me a lot of insight..few take away are

    -Have nerves of steel if you want to realize God.

    -God is a silent observer, a seer, a spectator and non -doer of any action yet He will always respond to our innermost consecrated desires.

    -Our strongest desire will be fulfilled one day by merciful God.

    -We are indebted to our blessed Masters who remove us from the forbidden path and reinstate us progressively with time little by little on the path of purity, love and benevolence-that is the path of God.

    -Spiritinlife blog was initiated by Mahavatar Babaji and has the inspirations, contributions and spiritual wealth of many, many other sages, seers, saints and illumined souls.

    – Babaji’s main mission, is to change the time cycle- from Kaliyug to Satya Yug, from the Age of modernity to the Age of Truth. A new race, a new human mind and a new approach to the age old problems of humanity needs to be undertaken.

    -Think of Shri Babaji, put your mind on him, pray to him, chant his name, meditate on his holy figure and wherever you are, seek his divine love and bliss. Ask for forgiveness, ask for transformation of your nature, ask for love, kindness and compassion and ask for salvation of your soul from the cycle of unending life and death.

    -Pray to him that you become a channel in his worldwide global mission, ask him to give you the moral and spiritual strength for doing penance to uplift your soul for higher divine consciousness and ask for mercy for all your wrongdoings.

    -It is a difficult job to instruct, teach someone the basics of spiritual education or to change one’s destiny by mutely decoding the spiritual laws and by peeping into their past lives without the disciple’s knowledge at all. But all the good things are possible provided the disciple yearns for it and obeys the guidelines and directives with reverence and faith given by the spiritual teachers.

    -if disciple fail to obey those imparted divine instructions within the stipulated time period, he shall lose out the auspicious and favourable time of your destiny when you shall gain the most.

    -By serving our planet, we will be serving God and our Gurus. Best way to serve God is to serve his children. God is most pleased with us when we serve our fellow brothers unselfishly and dedicate all our karmas at the altar of God.

    -If more and more young expectant parents invoke divine souls and if they lead a morally high and a pious life, then the wheel of time from bad to good should be much easier for the human race.

    -Readers who have been quietly reading this blog from time to time and have not yet made their commitment towards Babaji or maa, they should at least express their thankfulness to Shri Mahavatarji so that they do not transgress the God laid norms and rules and suffer in future in many ways.

    Dear Ma, Babaji and Masters thank you so much for everything you are doing for us.

    Koti Koti Pranam

    With love and gratitude

  26. Dear Sister.
    In the quest of my higher selve I’m going to north India. In late august I at last learned to breath! Woow – what a sensation 😉 Imidietly I knew what to do. As mentioned
    Without knowing much about India the cuest start in less than a mounth.
    Erobindo is probbebly my linjard, but what do I know? I know a thing or two about simplissety, and must continue to woreship that.
    Probbebly not the best time of year to travel up in the mountain, but I live in the mountain in Norway, houseless, sleeping in my hammock and full of faith. Or rather knowlage.
    Googled Babaji Badrinath, and found your blog, and apretiate a lot what you wrote.
    Thanks! !
    Where to go, and what to do- does not mather, eksept praktesing. Might be coold, but that is an opertunety to get rith of the sensation of the feeling of the body? Use it as the exquse of not practising now, but to go there and do the same is not an issu. Have so much in my mind for the moment soThere is nothing more importert than practising. New to Kriya- or the other way around – (in this life) I KNOW what to do- and I have to go to the top of India for that reason.
    Have to continue to read your blog, sinse I’m not reading much at all. Might get some ideas from you there about where mighty places to be found.
    A clouse friend who interedused kriya to me speeks about:
    If a man loose his house- he is Lucky.
    If he also loose his wife- he is even more Lucky.
    And If he loose all his things and money- he is BLISED.
    -so I might be that
    Namaste
    Erik

    • spiritinlife says:

      Dear Erik, Namaste if you are from Norway and live in the mountains of Norway, Badrinath at this time will not be impossible for you. It will reasonably cold and you can manage well, no issues at all.It snows in late November normally.
      I am happy that you are practicing Kriya and that will give you a new perspective all together. It will cleanse your mind and body. But remember there are some do’s and don’ts and one of them is that we should not eat meat with this divine practice. I wonder how one can live without that in your country. I don’t know. Anyway,
      Please go to Badrinath with an open mind and absorb the subtle vibrations of Shri Mahavatar Babaji, the air is laden with that profusely, just fix your mind well. Be careful about the touts/guides of the village Mana, 3 kms away from the temple. Mana is a very nice place to visit,it has two caves that of Maharishi Vyas and Lord Ganpati. Meditate there and you can also do your kriya without hesitation.
      Good places to see around is Joshimath not more than 45 kms before Badrinath so visit Adi Shakaracharya’s temple.Meditate there, you will benefit a lot.
      Continue reading my blog. It has all my realizations which I received form Shri Babaji and the other realized saints of India. Write to me if you need any assistance and guidance, I shall try to give you whatever is in my capacity. Write at spiritinlife@gmail.com
      God bless, have a nice journey and may you benefit and profit a lot on your pilgrimage to India.
      Sarika

    dear ma,

    pranam to sri mahavatar babaji and ma.

    seeking bleesing for all…

    With love,

  28. Resham says:

    Maa, This para is inspiring. I will save and re-read it many times. It sums a portion of your tapasya. 🙂 thanks for sharing this information about yourself with us….truly grateful for this.

    “If I had to fulfil my dream which God had granted, I had to be physically fit and mentally rock-solid. So I began to rebuild my body with rigorous physical exercises and began to meditate every day with devotion and love. I went to many pilgrimages in these years which were arduous. I gave up all the activities which were not in line with my mission and whenever I found it difficult to steer clear the impediments, physical or mental whatever they were, I reminded myself that if I want to see Mahavatar Babaji one day, I should stand all this with a smile. When I have walked on the treadmill and the body revolted, I have imagined myself that I am trekking in the Himalayas so that I can reach the abode of my Babaji.”

    • spiritinlife says:

      My dear Resham, this attitude is still intact and remains except that I am walking at a medium pace in the garden and not treadmill! The fervent desire to become face to face with Babaji is alive even now. Fulfillment of my dream has not got wiped out with the passage of time.With God’s grace and will, it will manifest. So keep your dreams alive.
      Ma.

    Thankyou babo for leading me to your blog. You know I have been googling for you all this while. And after so long I finally see this!! And yes, now this article was yet another confirmatory proof that it was you who guided me to Swami Nityananda’s ashram, and to Ansuiya ashram.

  30. niti says:

    Dear cosmic friend Sarika ji,

    I read that you wrote this blog very hesitantly. Be rest assured, I see very clearly here baba’s very superb reasons for everything he makes us do. Your blog is very comforting for seekers like us, who are continuously seeking baba and are so aware of his presence, and so very aware of him having taken the reins of our life into his hands, yet, the mind being so used to form, I find myself needing proof and confirmation every now and again. Since you have traversed a same path though with much greater intensity and longer time frame, I know you will fully understand what I am saying.
    I have been googling him daily to find more personal experiences of people with him just to, as you rightly put it, compare notes!!

    I think this blog is yet another blessing from him!
    Thank you, and thank you babo!!

    Niti
