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....

Shri Shirdi Sai Speaks-26th June/Wonderful leelas during my Kailash Mansarovar Yatra

Om Sai Ram

Picture of the day
South View of the Holy Mt.Kailash with Nandi Parvati Parvat on the right and Ashtapad to the left..

Above all the sacred mountains of the world, the fame of Kailash has spread and inspired human beings since times immemorial. Mt. Kailash, (6,740m) high peak is situated to the north of the Himalayan barrier, completely within Tibet. It is the perfect mountain with splendid beauty, with 4 great faces.. Its four sheer walls match the cardinal points of the compass, and its southern face is famously marked by a long vertical cleft punctuated halfway down by a horizontal line of rock strata. This scarring resembles a swastika, a Buddhist symbol of spiritual strength, and is a feature that has contributed to Kailash’s mythical status. The mountain is known in Tibetan as Kang Rinpoche, or ‘Precious Jewel of Snow’. – Lonely Planet.  It is the spiritual center for four great religions: Buddhism, Hinduism, the Jain religion and the pre-Buddhist animistic religion - Bonpo. For the Hindus Mount Kailas is the earthly manifestation of Mt. Meru, their spiritual centre of the universe, described as a fantastic 'world pillar' 84,000 miles high, around which all else revolves, its roots in the lowest hell and its summit kissing the heaven. On the top live their most revered God, Shiva, and his consort Parvati.To the Buddhists it represents a gigantic mandala of Dhyani-Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, as described in the famous Demchog (Chakrasamvara) Tantra, the ‘Mandala of Highest bliss’. – Lama Anagarika Govinda: The Way of the White Clouds... For the Jains (an Indian religious group), Kailash is the site where their first diviner achieved enlightenment. For the older, more ancient religion of Bon, it is the site where its founder Shanrab is said to have descended from heaven.A single kora (circuit) of the mountain is said to erase the sins of a lifetime; ten- the sins of an age, while 108 ensure Nirvana. However, these numbers aren’t meant to be taken literally. To gain Enlightenment, after one kora or a thousand your mind must be in touch with the gods and holy things. Most Tibetans prefer to walk about Kailash in a single day.


Ashtapad is at an elevation of 4900 metres (17000 feet). Ashtapad, meaning Eight Steps, is the place where the first Jain Tirthankara Shri Rishabhadev Bhagwan also known as Shri Adinath Bhagwan attained Nirvana (salvation).


It was a bliss to be here on the third day of my Kailash Parikrama.After I completed the parikrama,- I went to  Darchen and from there to Serlung Gompo to pay my respects to the most beautiful south view of the Kailash , Nandi Parbat and Ashatpad.


An intersting thing happened just a few minutes before we could go there-- one of my friends who had just come back from this place told me " Deepa, dont go -- U will not be able to see anything- there is a 4 and a half kilometer layer of ice that one had to walk on in order to get to this view and so all the people in that car decided not to go further and they came back without the darshan of this amazing view but still 12 of us went ahead with the plan - hoping for the best. After we reached there- seeing that layer of ice dissappointed us too but some friends were brave enough and they helped me to move on and then to our surprise the layer of ice was there for just 1/4 kilometer and after that -it was just a path of mud and stones which was not bad.. But one of my friends had injured herself during the second day of parikrama and was having a hard time walking down the trail. She kept telling me, Deepa , u go ahead - I can not move one more step. I kept encouraging her and told her that I will not leave her alone but she was in pain and was crying and asked Lord Shiva to help her....So once more Bholenath showed us His magic... All of a sudden from nowhere,- someone came on the bike--I stopped him and asked for a ride so he said he will surely give both of us a ride back and forth but we would have to pay 50 yuans each side per head .It was like Shivji, himself  had come to our rescue . We both gladly paid him and sat on his bike for a short ride to the south view of Mt.Kailash, Nandi parbat and Ashtapad..So in all it was a pretty Adventerous trip.. And perhaps a call of destiny..


The weather was just perfect that day. We sat here for sometime and enjoyed the bliss of the divine darshan of Mt. Kailash.. We prayed for ourselves and our families ..I had names of devotees who had asked me to pray for them just one day before I left for the Yatra..All those devotees to whom I had sent a reply back on the 26th of may.I prayed for all of them over here since that would have been my last darshan of Kailash.. Along with the names of those sai devotees, I also had a letter ..It was given to me by a customer in my store in september of 2011.. Although , he was an american but he had visited kailash and muktinath in the past and when I told him that I am planning to go for the Kailash Yatra- He told me about his girlfriend who had cancer and was very angry with God.. So much that she could'nt stand to even hear God's name . He wanted me to pray for her if I was lucky to go there. I told him that I dont even know that if my wish will come true  - so he said - I will write a letter and when ever u go there- just take that letter with u and leave it there.. In that letter, that boyfriend prayed for his girlfriend to make peace with god. I doubt, that girlfriend of his is still alive since she was in  the last stage of cancer.But where ever she is, I prayed that may her soul rest in peace and may she believe in Gods existence once again..I kept thinking that may be I was called here to dilever that letter which had so much of pain, hope and faith in our creator..Great is Lord Shiva and even Greater are His leelas...


So at the foot of Mt.Kailash- where u see that layer of ice on the ground- I dug a hole over there and put that letter along with another sheet of paper which had all the names of Sai devotees who had asked me to pray for them..This was the most holy spot , I could find to leave the prayers ..

May the holy Mt.Kailash bless our lives with peace and make all our wishes and dreams come true.
Sai bhakt,
Deepa H
