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....

Festivals, Vrat and Auspicious days
Kshir Bhavani Mela in Kashmir. Dhumavati Jayanti
.
Kheer Bhavani Temple

Khir Bhavani Mela, also known as Kshir Bhawani Yatra, is the annual festival held at the temple of Mata Khir Bhawani in Tulla Mulla village in Jammu and Kashmir. Khir Bhavani Mela 2011 date is June 9. It is observed on the Ashtami day during Shukla Paksha or waxing phase of moon in Jyestha month (June – July).
Kheer Bhawani is a temple dedicated to the goddess Kheer Bhawani (originally just Bhawani) constructed over a sacred spring .The worship of Kheer Bhawani is universal among the Hindus of Kashmir. The temple is situated at a distance of 14 miles east of Srinagar near the village of Tula Mula. The term kheer refers to the food used to propitiate the goddess, which became part of the name. As is the custom with Hindu deities, she has many names: Maharagya Devi, Ragnya Devi, Rajni, Ragnya Bhagwati, and so on.

Kheer Bhavani temple is devoted to Ragnya Devi, a Hindu Goddess. Representing the goddess is a sacred hexagonal spring at Tullamula village, which houses a small marble temple. The legend associated with the temple goes that Lord Rama worshipped Ragnya Devi during his exile. After the exile period got over, Rama asked Lord Hanuman to shift the seat of the goddess. The seat of the goddess was brought by Lord Hanuman first to Shadipora and later shifted to the site where the temple now stands.It is believed that it was the wish of Mother Ragnya that her seat be place at Khir Bhavani Mandir in Kashmir, India. And this wish was conveyed in dream to a pandit, Rugnath Gadroo.

According to another legend Maharagya was pleased with the devotion of Ravana and appeared before him and Ravana got an image of the goddess installed in Sri Lanka. But the goddess became displeased with the vicious and licentious life of Ravana and so didn't want to stay in Sri Lanka. Therefore, under the command of the goddess, Hanuman got the image from Sri Lanka and installed it at the holy spot of Tula Mulla.
The mention of Kheer Bhawani is found in Kalhana's Rajtarangini. Kalhana writes that the sacred spring of Tula Mula is situated in a marshy ground. The name of the spring is Mata Ragini Kund.

The temple of Ragnya Devi is called "Kheer Bhawani" because numerous devotees offer milk and kheer (Indian sweet dish) to the sacred spring. It is believed that milk and kheer turn to black color to warn of any impending disaster. Maharaja Pratap Singh got the temple constructed in 1912. Later, Maharaja Hari Singh undertook the repair and restoration work on the temple.

My humble pranams to The Goddess in an Atmalinga form at Kheer Bhawani temple.May this Goddess remove all the impurities from our hearts and minds and make us as pure and innocent as a new born child.
C.B. Satpathy: BABA May I Answer

What is the relevance of Sai’s teachings in today’s world?
Although volumes can be written on His magnanimous personality yet the most important preachings of Sai Baba of Shirdi that are relevant in today’s world are:
Love towards all including animals, birds and insects: Baba used to feed dogs even before He partook of His meals. He had equal sympathy for His horse Shyamkarna and other animals around Him at Shirdi. He extended His love even to a useless rock which He used for washing clothes or at times used to sit on it. Today that rock can be seen in Dwarkamai and is worshipped by devotees who come there. To a great extent devotees are following such preachings of Baba. People are seen distributing clothes, food, etc. to the poor. Narayana seva is going on all over the world in various Sai centers.
Religious tolerance: Shirdi Sai Baba looked after the Hindus, Muslims, Parsees equally. We can find people of all religions visiting His Samadhi temple even now. He always believed in the peaceful co-existence of all species. In today’s world there is a lot of intolerance among the people of various religions and sects. People must believe that all human faiths may be different but the goal is one. Shirdi Sai devotees are equal before God. At Baba’stime Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, Parsees and Christians, etc. used to share their views and talk with each other like real brothers in Shirdi. They firmly believe that flowers may be many but the God to whom the flowers are offered is one. Stars may be many but light is one. Similarly paths may be different but the goal is the same.
Social Harmony: Shirdi Sai never allowed people to have ill feelings towards each other on the basis of socialdifferentiations as caste, creed etc. People of all religions and castes used to have food together, sleep together,hug each other and share Hukka. When they felt loathsome to do the same He castigated them and told themeverything is Atma. If they hated them then they are in fact hating Him who is residing in them. People whobelieve in Baba should follow the same thing. Treat all mankind as brothers and live happily. Believe inbrotherhood of mankind under the fatherhood of God.


Sincere Prayers can Surely Know God's Will

God who dwells in our hearts, as the Inner Ruler, has been communicating with us in whispers. We just need to cultivate the habit of listening, with our psychic ears wide awake, and with a devout heart. Now and then He would let us know His message in audible words. If we could establish communion with the All-pervading Universal Soul, we get clear messages from that powerful source. God would fully occupy our heart and keep reminding us of our duty. If we faithfully pray to God seeking solutions to our problems, then the first thought that flashes in our mind would be in a way the solution suggested by God. As such, they will prove to be effective at any time.It is but common for the humans to have desires and problems. But, they do not have enough energy to match with the magnitude of their problems. God has infinite power, devoid of any desire. If our desires are surrendered to His feet, then His power envelops our intellect. So, when we are in a confused state as to what to do next, it is enough to remember Baba who is there within us to respond instantly. Like a flash, we get response from Him as to which direction we have to turn to, what is good or bad and the do's and don'ts. Baba decides what we deserve and hands it over as required. When we follow the silent instructions of Sai, we get good results in any work.
