Contentment is the destroyer of all three - desires, anger and greed......... Knowledge leads to freedom, but pride of knowledge leads one to hell.......... A single act of selflessness can turn hell into heaven. The habit of giving rather than asking is the tool for an enduring relationship........... Silence is the best language.......... Only the joy that comes from right conduct is true happiness- Other pleasures are really sources of pain and causes of shame.......... A god-fearing person can never be religious, because if you fear God you cannot love him............. The most beautiful thing is to see a person's simling face.And even more beautiful is, knowing that u r the reason behind it..................................................................................With lots of good wishes and regards to all from Deepa H and family [ ] ...............May Sai always give us peace of mind and May he always make us feel His presence where ever we go....

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 [ ] ...............May Sai always give us peace of mind and May he always make us feel His presence where ever we go....

Devon Ke Dev…Mahadev 12th August 2012 Written Update by Srushti
Nandi departing from Indra and Naradji slightly taunting Indra..that Shivji’s marriage is not only for Devas..but for the betterment of the world…Indra ofcourse agrees to it..but as usual his one track mind is still on the fact that it is time to be free of Tarkasur and ShivParvati’s son to arrive in the world ..
Mahadev is sitting on a stage like formation and Himalaya is doing his pooja…
The Pandit  asking Mahadev for his Gotra…dont you know the last person to talk about Gotras was turned into a Goat???
Naradjji tells Maharishi Garg, who asked this GREAT MAHAN Question that Mahadev is ‘Sanaatan’ and he is defined and born out of OM…and that is why his Gotra is OM!!!! Mahadev smiles on as his pooja is being done…
Himalaya asks Shivji to wait in the Groom room  -  as the Vadhu pooja (Bride worshipping) is to be done and tells him to send the material for Vadhupooja…Nandi is all haywire thinking what will happen?? as they have not brought anything for his Maata…Mahadev retires to his room…
Parvati is now being worshipped and Naani sends the two friends of Parvati to get the things for Bride worshipping from the Groom’s room…
Nandi tries to stop them but they actually barge in and start randomly addressing the empty room, asking for the things for Vadhupooja (Bride Worship) …and then realizing that Shivji is not there…run from there to announce in teh middle of the room that the groom has gone missing.. and Naani starts cursing Shivji…saying that Vairagis are fleeing experts…and Maina again on her original track..ranting how Shivji was always ineligible for her daughter ..Everybody looking at Vishnuji who is standing there..unperturbed and smiling as always..
Just then Nandi comes shouting ‘Maatey Maatey!!!’ and with tear filled eyes and folded hands he just stands there…and Maina again starting her nonsense rant…
Vishnuji  speaks up…and says that that they all had insisted that he rests in the Groom room…he must be there…Jaya Vijaya say that they have searched for him everywhere ..
Vishnuji and Parvati share an eyelock and Parvati understands ..She tells the whole ranting crowd that it might be difficult for her Swami to just let go of his Vairagi life and get into the rituals of the world…she will go and explain that to him…
Parvati in the Groom room and sees the Rudraksh necklace lying on the aasan where Shiv is supposed to be sitting She picks up the necklace and starts crying as to what kind of exam is he taking of her …
Mahadev comes from behind and says that he has not gone anywhere..and he had just gone to procure the proof of his love…
Parvati asks for details
But Mahadev is forever patient and opens a small bundle with the ornaments and says that he had gone to get them for her ritual of Vadhu pooja …Parvati tells him that they are beautiful but where did he get them from ..He said that he actually borrowed Gold from Kuber and extracted pearls from the ocean ..
But still..he was so sweet…when he was explaining that to Parvati…as if at complete loss to explain his love..but trying his that cool and calm manner…that was soo sweet…
And they turn and BHAM!! the whole family is standing there...
Maina gets flashbacks of her bitter words and repents..she apologizes before Mahadev…she accepts that it is her being human that actually did not make her see beyond his appearances…
Naanii accepts that she is ‘Sathiya Gai in her budhapa’ I mean she accepts that she went on lashing without even acknowledging what she was knowing..and she was sorry…
And then Maina…says that she wants Mahadev to get married in his own ‘Swaroop’ ,,that swaroop which is his favourite and which made Parvati fall in love with him .
Nandi gets FBs of Rishi Durvaasa and his curse…that Mahadev’s orignal Swaroop will never marry Parvati…
Shivji bows to Maina’s wishes…
And then we have the grandest of Mandap…with lakhs of people gathered…but a simple Vedic Agni…and Shivji along with Himavan and all entering…they do the preliminary pooja…
and then the moment comes…’Kanya Padharo Savdhan’ and Shivji actually went Savdhaan…So mesmerized he is by his bride walking towards him..and he stands up…and so does the entire clan…
Himavan makes them make the request to Gods to make them one…Himavan and maina perform the rituals of the parent…Vishnuji acting as a brother puts grains in Parvati’s hands which are supported by Shivji from underneath .Together they both put the grains in the holy fire…
Shivji puts his palm in Parvati’s and Vishnuji pours water in his palm…they both are looking at each other, and not even removing his sight from her face for a second…he pours the water in her hand …and closes her palm with his…he tells her that he has accepted her hand in marriage and she has been given to him by Vishnu and other Devtas..and he will take care of her..and their love will shine through centuries..and tells her that let us be one…so that their strength will unite…(beautiful scene!!)
The panditji tells them to move the black stone…and Parvati puts her foot on it…Shivji tells her…(holding her from the shoulders from behinds) that in the same manner she will crush the enemies that will rise against her…
The Saat Pheras
They take The Seven Pheras…the first four being led by Parvati..and the last three by the Groom…
Then they sit for Saptapadi…The Vows Ceremony!!
Precap : Shiv Parvati taking vows of Ceremony..

Devon Ke Dev…Mahadev 13th August 2012 Written Update by Killer_Shark

The divine couple complete their pheras.Now, both the bride and the groom will exchange their 7 vows (Saptapadi) says the pandit.Mahadev takes Parvati’s hand in his -Parvati “My good fortune lies with you ; its because of good karma from my previous birth that today you are mu husband and I’m your wife.Shiva “I will look after you with love- be at ease. I will be with you in happiness and grief. Parvati “I’ll be satisfied with whatever I get, and will look after the family from start to the end..Shiva “You will be free to choose any kind clothing, jewellery or be any kind of dressing. I will try to fulfill all your needs justly”
Parvati “I will always obey your order and will make sweets and food for you.. Shiva “I’ll never desire for another women; Parvati “Adorning myself with purest the form of shringar (make up); Vaani (speech), mann (mind), shareer(body) will conduct any work with along with you. Shiva “I’ll go to any teerth (Spiritual visit) or bhraman (travel) only with you by my side.. Parvati “I’ll stay strong in the times of grief and be gladsome in the times of happiness; and will always be their for you in your good and bad times ; And will never go near another man.”
Shiva “We will be always visit any garden or any place of entertainment together. You have freedom to make food depending on your tastes . Parvati “I will live contently in your house; Serve the In-laws and will honor the relatives. I will live where ever you stay, I’ll never forget people close to us.

Shiva ” I will never abandon you from your right of being my other half; I’ll never disown you from my heart. I hope that you bring of great contentment to me.”
Parvati “I’ll help you in Hoam, Yagya etc… I’ll go by your way in things of Dharma(righteousness), Arth, karm (work). Everybody present here stand as a witness that you have become my husband and I have surrendered myself to you. Now The bride and the groom will perform the ritual of
‘Hriday sparsh’ (Feel each others heart) Wao such a heart warming (literally) ritual this is…beautiful Mahadev then puts his hand on Parvati’s heart and utters ” I’ll contain your heart into my soul; Your heart follows mine. You reside in my speech with oneness. Now the Pandit asks Mahadev to put Vermilion and Mangalsutr to mata Paravti. And tells its significance -that it symbolizes that the lady has become a married women .. Himvan hands over the plate which holds both Vermilion and Mangalsutra
Mahadev ties the Mangalsutra to devi Parvati and also puts the vermilion on to her forehead.. Rohini gives a helping hand . Now Mahadev takes a coin and dips it into the box containing vermilion and applies it to Paravt dev’s forehead making her his forever. The parents, Family, Rishis, Devas,Nandi, Ganas all are very happy to see this wedding end peacefully and joyfully. Panditji asks them to take the blessings of their elders.. Shiva guestures her to do so.
The parents feel emotional and embrace their newly wed daughter.
Panditji then announces that -Mahadev and Mata Parvati on this day have become ONE. And the process of betterment has begun- not only for Shiv n Parvati but also the world .
Its a great honor to be that great people have made themselves as a part of this wedding.
Panditji announces that Gover grah ritual is gonna be the next.
Then the whole venue is echoed with praises to Mahadev..
Har har Mahadev
Har har Mahadev
Har har Mahadev
Now the bride and the groom are again welcomed by an arti into the house.
Rohini does the arti and gestures them to come in… only to be stopped by immature Jaya n Vijaya. They demand to Mahadev that this time if he wants to come inside he has to give them what they wish for.
Rohini shuts them up by saying that its not right to ask something so materialistic to a great viragi like Mahadev.
Instead his interest lies in art, music n dance..therefore today he has to dedicate a love poetry to Parvati.Everyone request Mahadev to say a few lines of poetry..
Poorn hai Shiv, poorn main adhik kuch hota nahi
Poorn na badhta na ghatta- pata nahi khota nahi
Shiv nivasit akeleho
Nakshatr tarak shashtum
Iss poorn ko adhik poorn tumne kiya hai Shambahvi.

Shivasrit hai ved gyaan, vagmay kala , sangeet swar
Shiv mayee hai loktray , guntray, srishtisarach
Shiv hee hai paravharm saar.. laksh vyanjana
Iss poorn ko bhi adhik poorn tumne kiya hai Niranjana..

(Sorry couldn’t get what exactly he said hope the above lines are right)
Everyone is supper impressed hearing this bit of excellence from the Lord himself!Jaya -Vijaya are like … so romantic wala expression! Parvati mata is over whelmed seeing his love for her.At last they get entry into the palace.Noe the ceremony starts.. With Rohini getting a plate filled with flowers and on the top of it resides this ring.. which the newly wedded has to find from the bowl filled with milk and a few petals of flowers.
She shows them both the ring which they have to find…and then moving her hand with the ring in circles into the milk, she leaves it. Here Mahadev n Parvati steal glances.Mahadev gestures like a perfect gentlemen to his wife to began.
Now the game begins!!!Parvati starts to find the ring… as she does that Mahadev, after a while puts his hand into the milk trough to find the ring.. In the process they touch each others hand…only to see Parvati ma blushing on Mahadev’s stair!!It was like both of them wanted the other to find it.
At last Mahadev finds it.. as he picks it up.. he stops and sees his wife still searching for it… then he puts it down and pretends to find it.. Then Parvati ma finds the ring and gets it out of the milk-She feels happy to find it first… Shiva does this silent convo with his wife that ” I’m ready to lose from you forever.. You have already bowled me over! Cause each win of yours is in my benefit. Anusaya devi asks them to get ready for the ‘agami riti’. Shiv n Parvati are taken to a place having these huge diyas -which they have to light.. Both take a diya and light the bigger one’s at a time. Devi Anusaya shares the importance of the ritual is that it helps you maintain the light/brightness and juncture of you both in life.

Precap:::Shiva feels for his wife that al her life she has been there with her parents and all of a sudden she has to leave them. Thus he decides that he would leave Kailash for Parvati’s sake and stay back at Himvan’s place.But, Gangas n Prayts are too naive and kin fulfilled gang.. they play around and spoil all the decor of Himvan’s palace; so Nani ma feels vexed up with this behavior of them and literally shouts that Shiva wont be staying at their place like a Ghar Jamanyee.!
Quote of BABA:
Know that, I like them who sees Me in everything. So give up the sense of differentiation. This is the way to worship me
