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....

Devon ka Dev Mahadev-8th July 2012




Devo ke Dev…Mahadev 8th July 2012 Written Update by -Srushti
So Parvati is back with her Shravana kind of handle with the pot filled with Mansarova water…She is almost at the Shivlinga when some brahmin and his son give her a call…the son is clearly dying in thirst and the brahmin tells her to give water to his son and save his life…
She tells him that it is Mansarovar water and she has brought it for Mahadev's Abhishek…the Brahmin tells her that this is the same water that would cure his son…Parvati just looks on…

Maina tells Himavan that Mahadev is not coming for Parvati and hence they should get her married to Naga Prince…and Himavan scolds her and tells her that Parvati is born for Mahadev and he cannot get her married to Naga prince…
Parvati on this side tells the brahmin that she would give the water to the Brahmin's son and says that her devotion is not as important as saving the life of the boy…and that she has enough faith in her love and devotion that she would go again to Mansarovar and get the water ..she mentally apologizes to Mahadev and makes him drink the water…the boy gets alright and says that it is because of her devotion that inspite of the fact that his thirst has been satisfied , she still has water in the pot…the brahmin blesses her that she has been born for the betterment of the world…and that she will always get what she wants in life…Mahadev is watching this whole thing from behind Parvati…
Parvati leaves with a smiling face and we see that the Brahmin and his boy were actually Narad and Nandi…
Himavan is paraying to Mahadev when he and Maina hear a blast…they see a sea of army from the windows ..
NagRaaj and Tarkasur’s sons are there with the army and Nagaraja is having doubts on their actions..whether it is right…but both just smile evilly…
Narad and Nandi come to Mahadev and tell them that Parvati has passed the test with flying colours….they are trying to tell Mahadev that Parvati is fully eligible for being his wife…Mahadev in deep thoughts....
Nagaraja and his whole army right inside the hall and there the fighting takes inside the palace ..
Himavan sees Vidyunmaali and his cunning smile and understands how come Nagaraja has such large army..Vidhyunmaali flashes his cuuning smile again and tells him that he has to comply with his promise and get Parvati married to Nagraj’s son…Maina flees the scene seeing this..
Parvati is about to do abhishek on the Shivlinga and Narad & Nandi are giving running commentaries again…seeing that now the pooja will be over and Maatey will be now real Maatey
And there comes Maina blaming Mahadev and telling Parvati that Nagaraja has made her father prisoner…Parvati tells her not to blame her God, and that nothing will happen when Mahadev is there with them and she walks off without the Abhishek but with the Shivlinga in her hands…with Maina following…
Nandi is upset that Parvati walked off without the Abhishek and Mahadev gives him a look and disappears from there…Narad tells him that this time it is not Parvati’s test but Mahadev’s…
Takku in his topless Mahal and wondering why Mahadev did not give him straight and simple boon of Amaratva..but he had to give it in this twisted way…and hence he will remain unmarried whole his life…
Vidyunmaali has Himavan tied and is about to kill him…When Parvati comes in with the Shivlinga…
Nagaraja is having second thoughts seeing the Shivlinga in Parvati’s hands and wondering I am the king of Nagas and I am going against Mahadev??? …Parvati tells them to free Himavan… Vidyunmali tells him that he will free him, only after Parvati gets married to Nagraja’s prince…Parvati agrees…Mahadev is in deep meditation somewhere ...
Himavan tells her that she cannot do this…Parvati tells him that Mahadev is everywhere…here and in Paatal…
Nagaraj says that he cannot make MAATA Parvati her daughter in law…
Tarkasur’s army chief kicks him and tells him that he has gone mad…and gives orders to get Paalki ready for Parvati…and Paalkhi came right there… Parvati sits on it…and tells Mahadev that she has given her responsibility to him and every blame on her, he will be an equal recipient…Narad also tells Mahadev that whatever will happen to Parvati today, you are to be equally blamed Mahadev as she has made you her other half in every matter of her life…
The soldiers are trying to lift the Paalkhi as Parvati starts chanting ‘Namah Shivay’…but they cant lift it…
Vidhyunmaali orders the WHOLE of Asur Army to come forward and help lift the palkhi..
Parvati is still chanting and the earth starts shaking and the Shivlinga is emitting rays…
Vidyunmaali has had enough of it and he blows his nose and chants a mantra and there comes  another big animal…something like a rhino…and orders him to kill Parvati..
Maina in the struggle to get free gets banged on her head and falls unconscious…Himavan who has been freed out of the chains because of the earthquake …tries to protect Parvati also gets his head banged and falls unconscious…That rhino like something approaches Parvati and there Mahadev gets mad and wham…his Trishul comes here and kills the big Rhino And then they show Mahadev getting angry ..
Parvati is still in meditaion and VidyunMaali attacks her with a spear and it hits Parvati
and she falls down…and all the villians start laughing…when they feel invisible punches…and fall  on the floor…Mahadev comes right in ..
They see mahadev and flee the place with their tails inside their legs But Mahadev drags them back…
Shukracharya suddenly opens his eyes from meditation and resolvs to save them and appears before Mahadev to save them…he pleads on his behalf and ask for forgiveness on their behalf… and then scolds them ..
Mahadev says that they have done something which is unforgivable ..but because of the request from a Guru like you…I am letting them go…
But then Mahadev turns back and sees Parvati lying on the ground dead to the world…and he walks towards her …in utter daze and grief…all the while having flashbacks of chhoti Parvati playing with Damru and announcing to the world that Mahadev is her husband…and the grown up Parvati and her devotion and dedication..their first meet and the later situations…her firm belief and unwaivering faith on him…
He sits next to her on hunches and puts his hand on her forehead and asks for forgiveness…that he was late…he gives her a promise by taking her hand in his ..that he will accept her…
Precap : Mahadev carrying unconcious Parvati in arms and telling her that now her last test will begin and he will be her Guru..guiding her all the way to him..
