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....

Story about Guru Nanak disappearing for 3 days in the River Bein at Amrit-Vela
Early every morning Nanak loved take a bath in the nearby river. He would clean himself with the cold water and then he would meditate. The time was coming for Nanak’s life to change in a big way. All his life he only cared about God. When he was born, the astrologer predicted that he would be a great man that Hindus and Muslims would both love. Soon it would be nanak’s time to go out and deliver his destiny.
One day as he was meditating many kinds of demons came to him and tried to scare him. He was being tested to see if he lived in God or if he was fearful. But Nanak wasn’t scared at all. He calmly watched the demons and felt at peace. When they couldn’t scare him, the demons tried something else. They decided to offer him lots of riches. They showed him beautiful gold, rubies and jewels of all kinds. They said “There’s nothing wrong, just take it, you deserve it, just take it. It is yours” He was being tested to see if he would desire money. But Nanak kew what was happening and he could not be tricked. He just smiled and let them keep talking. Then the demons offered him power, “People will love you, you make anyone do anything you want, you can do whatever you like, everyone will obey you. You will be like a great king and everyone will worship you. Anything you want will just happen.” Nanak didn’t move. He saw right through them. He knew it was just a trick and he just kept meditating on God.
Next they showed him magic powers. They said, “You could do magic, you could make yourself invisible; you could fly; you could do all kinds of amazing things.” Nanak just laughed and said “Only a fool would take these things.” They offered every wonderful thing in the world but Nanak wasn’t fooled for one second. The demons went away and Nanak went to bathe in the river. Then... he disappeared and no one saw him.
He was gone for a very long time. People started walking up and down the river calling, “Nanak, Nanak where are you? Nanak, Nanak?”
But Nanak was in bliss and was merging with God. The universe revealed all its secrets to him. He drank divine nectar.
He heard a voice say, “I am.” It was the voice of God. “You are filled with joy. All who follow you will be happy. Don’t let your mind get dirty from anything in this world. Recite the Naam, share it with others. Be kind to everyone. I am God of the universe and you must now go and teach.” Guru Nanak was completely merged with God.
After three days he came out of the river. People were surprised to see him alive. They thought he had drowned.
He looked full of light. and he didn’t talk much. After a long time he finally spoke.
He said “There is no Hindu, there is no Muslim. Everyone is the same.Everyone is a child of God." Then he spoke the Mool Mantra and the rest of Japji. His work had begun.He was now 'Guru' Nanak.”
Mool Mantra
Ek Ong Kar Sat Nam Kartaa Purkh Nirbhao Nirvair Akaal MooratAjoonee, Saibhang, Gur Prasaad
Jap
Aad Sach, Jugaad Sach Hai Bhee Sach, Nanak Hosee Bhee Sach Nanak Hosee Bhee Sach
English Translation of Mool Mantra

There is Only One God
Truth is His/Her* Name
S/he is the Creator, Perfect Protector, Without Fear, No Enmity, The First Entity, Without Incarnations, Self-perpetuating; With the Guru's grace:
Recite!
True in the beginning, True Through the Ages, True even now and says Nanak will be True in the future
Guru Nanak took with him as his companions a Muslim musician Mardana Ji and a Hindu peasant Bhai Bala and the three started travelling together to teach from village to village.
Guru Nanak’s wife, Bibi Sulakhani, started crying and said, “Don’t leave me alone.” He touched her on the forehead and her third eye opend. She saw how the world was in pain. She understood what Nanak had to do. She said, “It’s true, you must go. The world is on fire and you must put it out.” So they left to spread the message of the One in everyone.
Story of Guru Nanak Dev Ji And The Leper
During his first Udasi - preaching odyssey - Guru Nanak Devji, along with Bhai Mardana, visited Goindwal, now in district Amritsar, where a leper was kicked out of his village because he had the deadly disease leperosy. He was moved out and even his wife, mother, children and friends deserted him. He had been centre of attention of these relations and now they had all abandoned him. Why won't they? No one wanted to catch leperosy as anyone who comes near a leper catches this terrible disease. They used to throw roti ones a day outside his small hut and leave. Some days they forgot to give him roti altogether.
This leper was very heart-broken and was totally feeling dejected. Then he had a wonderful dream. His good karma from previous lives had awakened. He saw the most beautiful person who had an amazing glow on his face with another beautiful person with similar glow on his face. He heard a voice that this person is Guru Nanak and is the only person capable of cutting his misery.
The next morning he felt a new energy in his body. He started calling out Guru Nanak Dev jee. He started remembering him day and night. How could Guru Sahib hold back to the pleas of a person calling him from heart? He himself came to the door of that leper one rainy day. He came to that door where no one dared to come for fear of catching leperosy. Guru Nanak Sahib instructed Bhai Mardana jee to bring the leper outside in the rain.
Bhai Mardana a great Sikh did not question Guru Sahib for asking him to touch a leper. He readily went inside and brought the trembling leper outside. With one graceful glance, Guru Sahib cured him of his disease. He fell at the feet of Guru Sahib and asked for Naam medicine. Guru Sahib lifted the blessed ex-leper and gave him amrit-naam. That day in one moment, the fortunate leper, was cured of all his mental, bodily and spiritual diseases. He became one with the Guru.
So great is our Guru. May Guru Sahib do kirpa on us too and give us his amrit naam.
"Vahe Guru" is the Guru Mantra for the followers of Guru Nanak. The other important Mantra for repetition is:
"Ek Omkar Satnam Karta Purkh Nirbhav Nirvair, Akalmurat Ajuni Savai Bhang Gur Parsad—
God is but one, His Name is true, He is the Creator, He pervades the whole universe, He is without fear, He is without enmity, He is immortal, He is birthless, He is self-born and self-existent, He is the remover of the darkness (of ignorance) and He is merciful". The Lord is eternal. He has no beginning and no end.
To remain a Faithful one is but the Grace of Baba
The All-Pervading Divinity would be watching all that is happening at every nook and corner of the universe. With the sun and moon as His two eyes, none could hide anything from God. When we believe in Baba, it is absolutely necessary to be obedient to Him. We must do what Baba wants us to do with unquestioning obedience. Many would think that it is something great. But, it is not enough. We have to be loyal and faithful and have to behave in such a way that God trusts our sincerity and devotion. He knows all, not only things that we hide from others but also things hid in the deepest caverns of our hearts. It would be difficult to claim loyalty when several things are kept secret and not confessed either before a teacher or Sadguru.It is not enough to do what Baba taught us, but should be able to keep off from forbidden things. There should not be anything like thinking or doing by oneself. We should treat Baba as our Master and serve Him like a loyal servant. Dog serves its master with absolute loyalty. Even if the master insults or hurts it, the dog never leaves him. It always waits for his command and never does anything by itself and master is everything to the dog. Such dedicated service is the mark of true loyalty. Only God's Grace can turn such a devotee to the dedicated service of Sai Baba.
Quote of BABA:
He who thus comes to Me, becomes one with Me, just as a river gets to sea and becomes merged (one) with it.
