Who are you?-III

Thank you dear friends, for the warmth, love and confidence that you have exuded through your comments and mails after the last post was out. Subsequently, after receiving your responses, one is likely to understand that you are now being prepared for the next step in your journey.

Some of you are already showing signs of sparks and brilliance while others are on the threshold of spiritual awakening. Whatever the case may be, I am certain that most of you are progressing fast on the path that you have chosen with the constant grace, supervision and assistance of our beloved holy Param Guru Shri Mahavatar Babaji and others.  Our weblog Spiritinlife is now  a garden of holy companionship,  mutual support and  sharing intense knowledge. The beautiful flowers are blossoming here. My sincere prayers to the Almighty God to help us all in our future endeavours and efforts in order to achieve what we had set out to do- to  know who we are; to know our souls.

I have just returned from a short pilgrimage to South India and I am still reeling under the dizzying impacts of the Divine Forces present in those sites. After a considerable gap of more than four years, I visited Mahavatar Babaji’s birthplace in Parangipettai and Shri Aurobindo Ashram, Pondicherry.  They both are situated close to each other. My purpose was to revive myself and renew my enthusiasm for further higher spiritual developments. We would be  really fortunate to be visiting these places because one does not have to try hard as the huge Forces emanating from these two sites do their work on us automatically. A massive work is done on us when the inertia that we accumulate over the time is driven out by the Divine Forces of these places.

Not much is known about Babaji’s birthplace and it is so cut off from the world. It is in a very small, obscure village in Tamil Nadu on the sea side. Nevertheless, Parangipettai is very close to my heart! I like to visit it whenever I can. I visualize how Babaji must have lived here as a child and how he must have greatly influenced others even at that tender age before he renounced the world.

Babaji’s birthplace is so simple, minimal and devoid of any decorations yet the very powerful spiritual radiations that are still beaming out brilliantly is something one has to experience himself to believe this. The power of Ichcha Shakti or will is very prominent there.

Even if we go there many times, it takes quite a long time for somebody to do acute in-depth analysis and thus draw the conclusion regarding the similarities that I always notice between God and Babaji’s birthplace. I each time have a feeling when I visit this place that Babaji’s birthplace is so humble and simple just like him. As I was meditating there in the very calm environment, I really thought seriously  that  Babaji asks nothing from us, he says nothing  to us, does not demand anything, he is so calm and quiet and yet he is so, so influential.  His divine energies are influencing the whole of world ever since he was born almost two thousand years ago!

Likewise, God is also so reclusive, so away from the madness of this world yet it is all powerful, controlling this entire Universe. God is also never exhibiting any signs of being ostentatious.

They both are concealed and hidden away from the vision of the world; silent and hushed, yet powerful, very powerful. God is so wonderful, so simple, so powerful and without any outer adornments and any propaganda.  The silent energies should be felt by us if we can visit that place and  more commonalities will emerge if one concentrates on that holy place.

These thoughts inspire me a lot every time I visit the birth place and I begin to get these ideas that we should also aspire to be like God and the birthplace of Babaji- so lovely, so quiet, so powerful, so great, yet shying away from the world and never craving for any propaganda to prove their worth to the world! They are quiet, peaceful, reclusive, resourceful, and yet very great.

Also these are divine traits, our soul qualities and must be acquired to make our lives simple, happy and modest, great and noble….. how very wonderful, really……

These were my reflections at that holy spot.

Conclusion These three posts on ‘Who are you ?’ should prove to be  very beneficial for all the seekers whether they are already practising their sadhana or even if they have just begun is my belief. And after recognizing that we are a soul and not a perishable body, we should pursue our goal of experiencing it and should follow these three D’s in our everyday lives to reach our ultimate goal of God realization.

Determinations

Seek with determination. What you wish to know and realize, seek with determination. Do whatever is required to know God, but do not give up your goal of self-realization. The influence of Maya will dissuade you from the desired goal, but do not give up your resolve. Only those who are determined in life till the end achieve great things in life.

Discipline

The great mission of awakening and illumination requires two types of discipline.  They are physical discipline and mental discipline. To achieve something phenomenal, one should aspire to have a great body and a great mind.

A fit and healthy body is a must to pursue the noble cause of awakening and living a divine life. The senses can be controlled with ease if the body is disciplined daily through various forms of health disciplines and exercises. A disciplined body will be in control of the seeker and thus make his triumphs easy to achieve.

The senses likewise, should be trained in such a way that the yogi should not suffer because of their senseless actions and undertakings. Mental sadhana  is controlling of senses and mind.

If you wish to know yourself, go within, touch your inner silent depths, remain quiet mentally, maintain silence for sometime in the day, meditate deeply and remain in the God given bliss……

Daily prayers and meditations Daily prayers and meditation will help you to go within. They are the tools of God contact. A peaceful mind is able to have a longer duration of God communion, while a shallow and agitated mind will remain on the surface only. A few verses or shlokas  from the holy scripture reinforces these thoughts once again.

In Bhagwat Geeta,   Arjuna faces a similar dilemma when he tells Lord Krishna in chapter 6 verses 34 and 35

Chanchalam hi mana Krishna pramathi balvadhadham I

Tasyaham nighraham manye vayoriv sudushkaram II

For Krishna, the mind is very unsteady, turbulent, tenacious and powerful; therefore I consider it as difficult to control as the wind.

Shri Bhagwanuvach

Asanshayam mahabaho mano durnighrham chalam I

Abhyasen tu kaunteya vairagyen ch grihate II

Shri Bhagwan said: The mind is restless no doubt and difficult to curb, Arjuna; but it can be brought under control by repeated practice of meditation and by the exercise of dispassion, O son of Kunti.

Modesty, humility and simplicity are the qualities of the soul, inculcate them. Invoke God with love and simplicity. Meditate daily with all your devotion and consecrate your whole being in moments of prayers and meditations…….

Hari Om Tatsat, Hari Om Tatsat, Hari Om Tatsat!

  1. Dear Sarikaji,
    My humble pranam to u and Sri Babaji for showering of blessings and divine grace. I have been reading old posts here and with so much gratitude i feel that each word written here is full of blessings and it illuminates and transforms from material to spiritual world, from body to soul consciousness and helps to march ahead on the path of almighty god.

    • I am so happy to know about your visit to Sri Babaji’s birth place and your divine experiences there. I am so eager to go there and have prayed the same to him..
      Thanks a lot for this new post as it clearly tells that both God and Babaji wish that we all should be like them by having soul qualities like being simple,quiet,happy,noble,so peaceful and so pure. I am trying and i shall always try to be as per their wish. Please bless me for this.

      • And thaks again for the three D’s. Which are very much important for self realization.
        Determination to know our path for god realization through self realization and influnces of maya, here i remember words of sufi saint Rumi..
        ” Seek the wisdom that untie your knot. Seek the path that demands all your being. Leave that which is not, but appears to be. Seek that which is, but not apparent ”
        And then discipline both the ways, physical and mental.
        And daily prayers and meditations with so much devotion and unconditional faith..

        We all are really blessed to know this profound and sacred knowledge from you and Sri Babaji…

        With lots of love and gratitude…
        Nirav

          Rumi..
          ” Seek the wisdom that untie your knot. Seek the path that demands all your being. Leave that which is not, but appears to be. Seek that which is, but not apparent ”
          Very well said in these timeless lines.
          Nirav, you have found really meaningful lines of Rumi and it has great depths and has made a great impact. Thanks for sharing the words of wisdom, I liked it a lot.

      • spiritinlife says:

        May god bless you and may your prayer be fulfilled!

        This post was to drive home the point that our soul is so pure, devoid of any artifical and unnecessary things. We should also be pure, modest and simple like our souls. Making our lives simpler and hasslefree brings a lot of relaxation and free time to pursue our spiritual goals. Seekers who wish to walk faster on their paths should follow a clean, pure and simple life.

    • spiritinlife says:

      Dear Nirav, this blog is a gift to the world from Babaji and it is this space from where he speaks to the world. He also gives knowledge to the world according to the age and time we are in. He has made old scriptures very easy and relavant for today’s use. He had prayed to God to allow him to unleash and share the ancient knowledge which has been kept secretive and was passed on only from Guru to shishya. Most posts have that knowledge contained in them about which you are describing. Hence we feel elevated to the spiritual world. You will also find the blessings of many other divine souls who collaborate with Babaji in his world wide mission of spreading divine knowledge, love, peace and oneness with our Spirit on this blog.

      • Dear Sarika Ji,
        Pranam…
        Thanks for everything…
        To you..
        To dearest Babaji..
        And all other pujya saints…
        And dear God… for blessings of peace and wisdom. And thanks for liking Rumi’s words. I often read his quotes.
        With lots of love and gratitude…
        Nirav…..

    -If you wish to know yourself, go within, touch your inner silent depths, remain quiet mentally, maintain silence, meditate deeply and remain in the God.

    -Key tools of God contact lies in 3D’s -> “Determination”, “Discipline” and “Daily prayers and meditations”

    -Seek with determination..Have Physical and mental discipline..Do daily prayers and meditation to go within.

    Thank you Ma, Babaji, God and all masters for so much care…with love and gratitude.

      Ok Shahid your positive affirmations will take you long ahead, just stay in refuge. Inspire others and stay inspired by the ideals of Truth. My job is to tell the world what is Truth, applying them is their decision. May God bless us in knowing that Truth.
