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....

VIP darshan during weekdays banned in Shirdi
Following news is published in "The Pune Mirror" on front page today (28th January 2010). ALL EQUAL BEFORE SAI
Santosh Andhale
Finally, all will be equal in the eyes of God, much to the disappointment of the country’s pious VIPs of course. A decision to ban VIP darshans during weekdays was taken on Wednesday at a meeting of the Shri Sai Baba Sansthan Trust (SSBST) held at Mantralaya.
VIP darshans at the popular shrine has been a vexing issue because devotees were regularly inconvenienced when their queues were stopped to enable politicians and other bigwigs to worship first. The trust has now decided that ‘paid darshan’ where devotees can pay a fee to jump the regular queue will be allowed on Saturdays and Sundays only.
On a regular day, over one lakh people visit the shrine, which is the second richest in India. On holidays and weekends, the number goes upto five lakh and during festivals, it exceeds eight lakh. Though most devotees are from Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh, a large number come from other parts of India. In recent years, the shrine has been attracting devotees from abroad.“To do justice to ordinary devotees, we have taken the decision at our board meeting to stop VIP darshans because it caused inconvenience. Now, we are introducing a paid darshan like the Tirupati Sansthan which has this system. The facility will be available between 9.00 am and 12.00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. We will work out the fees to be charged. At the meeting, some trust members suggested Rs 100 for regular darshan and Rs 500 for aarti. The facility will start at the temple within 7-10 days,” said Jayant Sasane of the trust.It has also been decided that the number of devotees who will be able to avail of the paid darshan will be limited to 10 per cent of the total number of people waiting in the queue for regular worship. “For instance, if there are 1,000 devotees waiting at the temple, we will allow only 100 people through paid darshan. Once they go out, another group will get a chance. Our intention is not to generate revenue but to avoid inconvenience of ordinary devotees,” added Sasane.The issue of VIPs holding up thousands of devotees has been a regular complaint. It is estimated that every VIP visit holds the queue for at least 15-20 minutes – not a minor inconvenience for pilgrims, some of who wait for five to six hours before getting close to the samadhi. During holidays, the temple town is so full of pilgrims that no accommodation is available at hotels and charity hostels.The number of pilgrims visiting the shrine has been on the increase in the last five years and there is also a growing demand for VIP darshan from ministers, political leaders, government officers and celebrities. The trust gets thousands of requests for VIP darshan every day. At any time, the trust’s public relation office is filled with people seeking VIP darshan passes to avoid waiting in a queue. Temple authorities say that most VIP darshan pass seekers want regular darshan for the early morning aarti that starts around 4.30 am and Madhyanah Aarti which starts around noon.The SSBST (Shirdi) is one of the richest trusts in Maharashtra with an annual revenue that exceeds Rs 240 crore. The trust has invested huge amounts of money in property and government bonds which is estimated to be around Rs 450 crore. It also donates money to social causes and relief efforts. There are devotees of Sai Baba who are donating a crore of rupees to the trust each year.
In the city, Siddhivinayak Temple Trust started the paid darshan system four years ago. “ We give one time darshan to anybody by charging Rs 50. These devotees have a separate queue. People mostly avail of this pass on Tuesdays and holidays. We also issue a yearly pass that costs Rs 6,000. those who avail this pass can come for darshan on any day during the year. It is a successful system. We have no problem implementing this system,” said Hanumant Jagtap, CEO of Siddhivinayak Temple Trust.
Purify Your Mind
Impurities like desire, anger, lust, greed, pride, delusion, jealousy & ego exist in the mind like clouds covering the sky, and with a clouded sky the sun becomes obscured. In the same way, when we remove the clouds of impurity from the mind, the mind is in a position to perceive everything crystal clear. Accept the situation as it comes. Never get awakened to anger or provoked as you’re already feeble to move a finger.
If you tread the path and find that your mind is not as pure as you wish it to be, don’t worry. You must realize that the movement is progressive. You should move on as guided by Pujya Gurudev in spite of the negativity in the mind. Be alert & objective, watch the clouds as they form and dissolve. You must move on without justifying those negative qualities within you. Although it is pointless to struggle viciously with mental impurities, meaningful self-ef­fort must be employed to control and gradually eliminate them.
In this above process, try to see that impure thoughts and feelings are not allowed to find expression in the realm of speech and action. When you observe the rising of anger, try to contain it, to nip it in the bud. Once you begin to express words out of anger, the situation gets out of hand.
When the mind is filled with anger, hate, greed and passion, the spirit in you turns away from the Divine Self, and a distance begins to grow between you and your innermost Self. But when the mind is filled with love, cheerfulness, contentment, and other Divine virtues, the distance is shortened. Baba’s saying, “You take one step towards God and God takes one hundred steps towards you.” When the mind shines with perfect purity, there is no distance at all. Through the clear mirror of mind you realize, “I am He!” and become free of the cycles of birth and death.
Baba Alone Blesses us With Pure, Divine Love
Although several friends, intimate and near and dear ones, are around us, great treasure and pleasure of life are within one's reach, we sometimes get the feeling of 'loneliness'. A sense of lacking something and an unknown feeling of dissatisfaction engulfs us. We hunger for pure, spotless, intimate love that never abandons us. Why do we feel so? The reason - "What does 'I' mean? Is it the body? No!" Although several activities like eating, drinking, sleeping, listening, seeing that we do, of course, appease the sense organs of the body, our inner soul is not satisfied. Once we get the feeling that 'we are distinct from the physical body composed of five elements', we think that the void can be filled only by divinity. Baba, who incarnated on the earth for the sake of mankind, shall only show the path to true and enduring happiness.The search for God is surely a quest for joy. God is the embodiment of Ever-New Joy. We need to search for Baba. Like a child, we must long to belong to Baba, chanting His name and always listening to Him, as He alone can bless us live blissfully. When we cry like a child for Baba's Presence, He will bless us grow and glow in health and strength, plenty and peace. Baba's blessings are spiritual riches. To come to Baba is to reach the Abode of Love, Light and Delight.
