One step closer to Brahma Gyaan

One step closer to Brahma gyan:::: A 'devotee' goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to the Temple . 'I've gone for 30 years now, he wrote, and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 mantras. But for the life of me, I can't remember a single one of them. So, I think I'm wasting my time and the Gurus are wasting theirs by giving services at all. This started a real controversy in the 'Letters to the Editor' column, much to the delight of the editor. It went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher: I've been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals. But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this... They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today. Likewise, if I had not gone to the Temple for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today! When you are DOWN to nothing.... God is UP to something! Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible! Thank God for our physical AND our spiritual nourishment! ------------------------------ So easy to beat yourself up over mistakes you've made. So many amongst us live in the past rather than loving the present and building a brilliant future. Some people stay stuck for years over something they did or a failure they've experienced. Sad. A life is a terrible thing to waste. But let me ask you a question: "is there really such a thing as a mistake?" First of all, no one tries to fail or mess things up. Every one of us wakes up in the morning, walks out into the world and does the best we can do based on what we know and the skills we have. But even more importantly, every so-called "mistake' is actually a rich source of learning. An opportunity to build more awareness and understanding and gain precious experience. Experience that will help us do, feel and be even better. So, just maybe, there are no mistakes. Just maybe what we could call failures are actually growth lessons in wolf's clothing. And just maybe the person who experiences the most wins. ---------------------- A sick man turned to his doctor as he was preparing to Leave the examination room and said, 'Doctor, I am afraid to die. Tell me what lies on the other side.' Very quietly, the doctor said, 'I don't know.' 'You don't know? You, a Christian man, Do not know what is on the other side?' The doctor was holding the handle of the door; On the other side came a sound of scratching and whining, And as he opened the door, a dog sprang into the room And leaped on him with an eager show of gladness. Turning to the patient, the doctor said, 'Did you notice my dog? He's never been in this room before. He didn't know what was inside. He knew nothing except that his master was here, And when the door opened, he sprang in without fear. I know little of what is on the other side of death, But I do know one thing... I know my Master is there and that is enough.' ------------------------------- A boy and a girl were playing together. The boy had a collection of marbles. The girl had some sweets with her. The boy told the girl that he will give her all his marbles in exchange for her sweets. The girl agreed. The boy kept the biggest and the most beautiful marble aside and gave the rest to the girl. The girl gave him all her sweets as she had promised. That night, the girl slept peacefully. But the boy couldn't sleep as he kept wondering if the girl had hidden some sweets from him the way he had hidden his best marble. Moral of the story: If you don't give your hundred percent in a relationship, you'll always keep doubting if the other person has given his/her hundred percent.. This is applicable for any relationship like love, employer-employee relationship, friendship etc., Give your hundred percent to everything you do and sleep peacefully ---------------------- The tragedy of life is not death,but what we let die inside us while we live.When u were born,the world rejoiced while u cried,-live ur life in such a way that when you die,-the world cries while u rejoice.. -------------------------------- Your days are your life in miniature. As you live your days, so you craft your life. What you do today is actually creating your future. The words you speak, the thoughts you think, the food you eat and the actions you take are defining your destiny รข€“ shaping who you are becoming and what your life will stand for. There's no such thing as an unimportant day. Each of us is called to greatness. Each of us has an exquisite power within us. But for this power to grow, we need to use it. The more you exercise it each day, the stronger it gets. The more this power gets tapped, the more confident you grow. The best among us are not more gifted than the rest. They just take small steps each day as they march towards their biggest life. And the days slip into weeks, the weeks into months and before they know it, they arrive at a place called Extraordinary. ----------------------------- If you can not respect , love , care about ,stand by or be honest with your own parents ,-who gave birth to you and were the very first people who fell in love with you -- then whether you accept this or not but you do not love anyone else in this world either with all your heart and soul ....and time will show that none of your children will stand by you either- when you will need them the most.. ----------------------------------- If you sit with a person who is smoking, even without ur knowledge- You will end up inhaling second hand smoke.In the same way, if you be in the company of saints who constantly preach about the importance of doing good karma-, automatically even without ur knowledge- u will end up doing a lot of positive and humble deeds. If you be in the company of a person who keeps saying bad words and abusing others then then obviously whether u like it or not -- u will end up being the same kind of person sooner or later. And if u constantly listen to Gods name, his praises, his bhajans-even without you being aware of it - the words that will come out of your mouth will be nothing but the nectar of love and bliss. So be in the company of God and even without your knowledge-You will find him seated in your heart - talking to you and finding solutions to ur problems and worries.You just need to take one step towards Him and He will take 100 steps towards you.. By Deepa H inspired by Sai -------------------------------------------- Always tell someone that you love them because you never know what day Will be their last, or your own. Always seek to resolve your problems or disagreements with loved ones Because if either of you should pass on before, the one who is left alive will have the rest of their life to ponder those unresolved feelings but will never find closure. And closure usually brings Peace... ......................................................................................With lots of good wishes and regards to all from Deepa H and family [ debu7366@yahoo.com ] ...............May Sai always give us peace of mind and May he always make us feel His presence where ever we go....

Nothing happens with out God's will and grace.. One great example is something that happened with me yesterday. I was all set to actually send the mail about Vaidyanath jyotirlinga in Parali last night along with the Shri Shirdi Sai speaks - 3rd December mail. I had everything in my hand ready -- the pictures- the matter-- even to top it of I had 2-3 hrs of free time where I was all by myself so no disturbance of any kind .. If u had to ask me last night , I would have said for sure this mail will go before I go to sleep but as we all know nothing can happen without Gods grace. Baba had planned something else for me other than sharing the pictures of Vaidyanath temple with all of u .Even though I had all the pics but I was not able to upload a single picture in that mail. Instead with a single click -- I reached to a link in youtube and started watching the serial Maha Shiv puran and beleive it or not --those 2- 3 hrs-- I could not stop watching the stories behind all the 12 Jytoirlingas and much more. It was like Baba had taken me on a blissful teerth yatra and read the Shiv Puran, himself to me.. It was a very nice experience..
I have uploaded some of the videos of Maha Shiv Puran at http://debu7370.blogspot.com on the right side of the blog. In order to Know more about the Jyotirling Yatra- It is important to watch those videos. I will be uploading all the videos asap . I am sure just like me- you will also enjoy watching them.
Vaidyanath Jyotirlinga is one of the twelve Jyotirlingas, the most sacred abodes of Shiva. It is located at Deoghar in the Santhal Parganas division of the State of Jharkhand . It is also known as Baba dham and Baidyanath dham.
It is the only place in India where the jyotirlinga and the saktipeeth are together. They lay side by side. Vaidyanath Temple is also considered to be one of the 52 Shakti Pitha shrines of Sati. It is believed that the heart of Sati fell here, when her half burnt body being carried by Shiva at the end of Daksha's yagna, was chopped to pieces by Vishnu's discus.
Three different places have claimed themselves as the real sites for the jyotirlinga of Vaidyanath. Thus there are three different temples- Baidyanath temple in Deoghar, Vaijnath temple at Parli in Maharashtra and Baijnath in Kangra, Himachal Pradesh. It is believed that the temple site in Deoghar was a Chidabhoomi where dead bodies were burnt and after-death rituals were carried out.
There are 22 temples in the same campus of different Gods and Goddessess among which Lord Shiva is embraced being as supreme. Modern concepts ascribe that the shrines are of both old and new styles. The temple of Shiva is 72 feet tall and it is lotus Shaped. The top contains three ascending shaped gold vessels that are compactly set, which is donated by Giddhor King. Besides these pitcher shaped vessels, there is a 'PUNCHSULA' (Five knives in Tridenta shape), which is rare. In inner top there is a eight pettaled lotus jewel (CHANDRAKANTA MANI). The 'LINGAM' (Lord Shiva) is also very rare.
There is a very well known story behind this famous Jyotirlinga. The demon Lord Ravana from the Ramayana meditated with all his devotion in hope to make Lord Shiva come over to Sri Lanka so that his city would become unbeatables. Ravana even attempted to lift the holy mountain, Mount Kailash that is Lord Shiva’s abode. But Lord Shiva crushed him with his finger and Ravana begged for forgivenes.Ravana was very disappointed and offered severe penances to Lord Shiva and cut off his nine heads. Lord Shiva revived him and joined the heads to the body like a physician or Vaidya and hence the Jyotirlinga got he name Vaidyanath.Lord Shiva had mercy on him and gave one of the twelve Jyotirlingas to Ravana on the condition that if it is placed on the ground it will take root immediately. Ravana was happy as he was taking his return journey to Lanka.
The other gods objected to this plan; if Shiva went to Lanka with Ravana, then Ravana would become invincible and his evil and anti-vedic deeds would threaten the world. Therefore the gods tricked Ravana. Ravana was offered water by Parvati, who then directed all the waters of three rivers (Ganges, Yamuna and Saraswati) into Ravana's stomach.
On his way back from Mount Kailash, Ravana felt an urgent need to urinate and as he could not do so with the holy linga in his hand, he started looking for someone who could hold it for him. Ganesha then appeared as a Brahmin in front of him. Ravana asked Ganesha to hold the linga and went to release himself, but he could not stop urinating because of the trick played on him. Ganesha, pretending to be vexed by Ravena's delay, set the linga down on earth. The moment linga was kept down, Ravana stopped urinating.
Ravana needed to wash his hands after urination to make himself pious. Finding no water source around he hit the ground with his fist and a big crater was made which got filled with water. When Ravana now tried to move the linga, he could not. Out of anger he press the linga down with his thumb. But after restoring himself, he started to offer his prayers for the linga.
If one worships Vaijnath Jyotirlinga a person can eliminate all his/her worries and miseries It is also a giver of Moksha and all types of happiness.
According to other traditions, not noticed in any purana, the 'LINGAM' (Lord Shiva) lay neglected after the death of Ravan until it was noticed by a rude hunter, Baiju, who accepted it as his God and worshipped daily; proclaiming to the world as the Lord of Baiju (Baidyanath).
Some of the purans ascribe the advent of Baidyanath of Deoghar to the 'Satya Yug', or the first age of the world. When Sati, the wife of SHIVA and the daughter of DAKSHARAJA committed suicide in consequence of the discourtesy shown to her husband by Raja Daksha; the heart falling spot of Deoghar (Baidyanath) of SHIVA'S Sati attends is sanctity. Hence the place had been called 'SIDDHAPEETH' .

May Shri Vaidyanath Jyotirlinga remove all the pains and miseries from our lives
Message from the teachings of Sai baba for 4th December
The Avatar of Lord Dattatreya Sage
Athri, personified satvic or pure good nature and transcended the three gunas. Anasuya, the devout consort of Athri, conquered envy, the mother of all vice. The Trinity, Brahma, Vishnu and Maheswara, took birth as Dattatreya, to the couple Athri and Anasuya, pleased of their pure devotion. God thought of the need for a Guru who will serve as the guiding light to humans, whose minds, clouded by ignorance, were unable to discern what is good and bad and put them on the righteous path. God manifested as Dattatreya, the form of Sat, Truth, Chit, Knowledge and Ananada, Bliss and initiated the lineage of Guru. The mission of Datta Avatara is to give all access to the spiritual wealth. Thus, He taught Self-Knowledge to the worthy and groomed them to become teachers of wisdom.Lord Dattatreya observed the changes that were taking place in society, adapted His form to suit the changing times and incarnated as Akkalkot Maharaj, Nrusimha Saraswathi and Manik Prabhu and liberated people from sins with His wise teachings. He lit the lamp of peace by preaching religious tolerance in Shirdi as Sai Baba. People who looked to Sai as an embodiment of all gods and goddesses and as the total incarnation of Dattatreya are being blessed to tread the path of righteousness and joyousness, leading to liberation.
----------------------
I firmly believe that I have no say or do in choosing the time and the matter of these messages. They are all inspired by Sai himself and I am simply the media to share these wonderful pictures of teerth Yatra with all of you..May Sai show us all His presence and His leelas by taking us around the world to visit all the sacred shrines thru these teerth Yatras.

Gurur Brahma Gurur Vishnu Gurur Devoh Maheshwar;
Gurur Shakshat Parambramha Tashmai Shri Gurur Veh Namah"

May the Merciful Sri Sai Baba always shower His grace on us and our families and remove our problems and anxieties by giving us all - strength , goodluck, success and happiness with peace of mind.
Sai bhakt,
Deepa H
