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 3rd August 2012 Written Update by Killer_Shark
At the Shamshan:
An old man is seen weeping on the samshan grounds desperate to meet Mahadev, and this is observed by one of the prayts n he decides to inform this event to Mahadev.
The prayt narrates this to Mahadev n others at Kailash.
Mahadev then sends Nandi to look into the matter..
When Nandi reaches the place he sees the Old man literally begging to have just a glimpse of Mahadev
“I wont move from here, my life is at its last stage, I would give away my life for the sake of your darshan; At least after my death I could be able to reach you! ” cries the old man.
Nandi is kinda impressed by this kind of devotion of this man for Mahadev and he utters “Excuse me!”
The old man at once recognizes that it was Nandi’s voice.
Then he stands up with the help of a stick and greets Nandi.
Nandi asks him who he was?
“Dont you recognize me? Time changes all, I’ll see this day, will my Mahadev be able to recognize me or not. Nandi please take me to Mahadev ” says the old man.
“How can I take you to Shiva without knowing the reason. And may be you don’t have the knowledge that today is Mahadev’s wedding, so he is busy.” Nandi
The old man requests Nandi to take him to Mahadev and if Mahadev doesn’t recognize him, he would leave the place at once.
Nandi finally takes him to Kailash.
As they walk, with Nandi giving support to the man he asks him again that who was he.
“Don’t you remember the times we spent? Do you think that Mahadev would remember me? ” The old man riddles.
Nandi assures that Mahadev knows everything- past, present, and future.
At Himvan’s palace:
Nani tells Menavati that everybody is waiting for her at the Shilapujan ritual…
Menavati though happy, shows her dubious feeling about the marriage.
She is worried about the future of her daughter.
Nani explains “She wont get the same kind of love from her husband that she got from Himvan; but nobody can ever love her the way her husband would. ”
(yeh lo kaam nai hai unlogonko ..madam you have a fat BIG wedding at ur place n you waste your time reasoning useless facts!)
Menavati doubts “Parvati has done great penance to get Mahadev as her husband, but he never did anything to get her; Would this make him feel superior than her after their marriage. what if he thinks she is less than her?”
Nani ma replies “Do you thin Parvati must have chosen a person who would look down upon her? And if at all any issue arises in her married life, she would tackle them with her virtue and capabilities.” Nani continues with her optimistic talk “Marriage is a very scared events and it has to be done with positivity and purity.”
Parvati is glad to hear this from her granny!
Menavati still is unable to get her heart and mind together.
Paravti goes to her mother ” Mother, very soon you would get-read of these worries and you would not only be proud of your daughter, but also your Son-In-law on the note that this marriage will be referred as one of the most successful one. ”
Nandi brings the old man to Kailash.
NAndi goes to Mahadev and says “Lord, he didn’t let me know who he really is and even I could not recognize him! He also has said that, if you couldn’t remember him then he would go away that very moment.”
Shiva goes to that man and puts his hand on the man’s shoulder.
“You have come here to test your uncle (Mama) Sukand?” says Mahadev
Nandi recollects those moments spent with Sukan in Sati era.
“Mama, you remember me” Says an old Sukand.
“How can I forget my dear nephew Sukand” says Mahadev.
“Mama, I do not feel sorry about my old age or my week body, this body is perishable ; there is a greed to see your wedding in the form of your nephew -In the same form when I for the first got blessed to see your divine presence. ”
“Be it!”, blesses Mahadev.
The man turns back to his younger self..(our golu sukand is back!)
Sukand says “Mahadev, being a part of your varyatra there is no wish that is left.”
Little Sukand is very excited to meet his Maami..which leaves an ablush groom-wa.
The crowed sings praises of Shiva..Har har Mahadev!!
Back to Himalayas…
Parvati puts her hands onto a plate filled with red paste of vermilion and makes the imprints of her hand onto a straight smooth surfaced Plank(made of rock)
Nani ma orders a sevak to take the plank for the Mandap sthapna.
Rishi advices them to start Rasoyee pooja (Pooja done at the kitchen in honor of God’s to run the wedding food preparation smoothly.)
At the royal kitchen:
Parvati is told to do the pooja to the stove or fire place (where food is supposed to be made in ancient times)… she then sprinkles the scared water onto the fire place with the help of a mango leaf for three times. (This represents shudhiikaran – the process of cleaning the vibes.)
Then she repeats the process sprinkling vermilion, turmeric and showering flowers..Parvati does the aarti.
Then milk is poured into a huge vessel. The poojari asks Parvati to lite fire to the stove then she prays to Agni dev to kindly corporate and help them in this auspicious day of her wedding .
And fires the stove by the diya..
(Karpura gauram karunavtaram…plays in the background.)
At Kailash again the atmosphere is filled with celebration.
Rishi Dhadhich ties a sacred thread to Mahadev’s wrist, where MAhadev constantly looks at it.
Where devi Laxmi and devi Sarswati does the arti
Devon ke Dev Mahadev!
Devi Anusuya outs a garland around his neck, also adorns Shiva’s eyes with kajal.
Again Kailash is endlessly echoed with Har HAr Mahadev!
With all the gans,praytas, rishis, bhakts dancing n celebrating.
At the precises moment of the auspicious muhurt Mahadev gets up and proceed towards Himalayas.
Parvati runs to the hall calling “Di di di di..”
Khyati, Revti, Aditi and Roohini come all the way to Himalayas inorder to attend their dear sister’s wedding.
PArvati feels very happy to see them.
Rohini informs that the wedding has brought life not only at earth but also to the whole universe.
Khyati digs the past saying that she had to go against their parents to marry Mahadev as Sati.
Aditi and others dig the past again saying jab jo nai hua abhee woh nai hogaa n stuff..which includes Sati’s death.
Parvati justifies that it was all for a purpose and it was cause of that she was able to complete her penance .she wishes to see Prasuti and Daksh at her wedding.
The sisters share a group hug..
Back at the Kailash
Shiva is all set to go to wed his Parvati..only to be stopped by a requesting Nandi to ride his master- Mahadev on his own back.
Nandi then coils onto the ground and takes the form of a ‘real bull’
Then two of the prayts feeling blessed make themselves as steps for Mahadev to climb on to the bull.
(The BG somehow reminds me of Tashan’s track- Dil hara re)
Shiva climbs on the bull and all of a sudden a huge 7 headed serpent capsules him -looks extremely majestic.
Precap:Mahadev’s baraat is nearing Himvan’s place…but all of a sudden dust blurs their path.
Menavati is seen on her bed saying Parvati “This wedding is not gonna happen.”
Temple is a 6 letter word
Church is a 6 letter word
Mosque is also a 6 letter word
Geeta is a 5 letter word
Bible is a 5 letter word
Quran is also a 5 letter word
So, Religion is not a matter
The love we have only matters
If Baba’s Grace is Added to Our Sadhana, We
Become Complete Beings

Of all the species in the universe, human birth is the greatest one. The spiritual quest and human values make human life greater. Guided by human values, man must become perfect, worthy to be called a human being. The spirit of humanity is becoming a thing of the past. Which is why modern man is starved of peace of mind. To change this situation, man has to become wise. For this, man has to undertake spiritual practices. It is but common for the practitioners to face obstacles. Some people pride themselves in the little progress they have made in their spiritual practices. Baba set an example, as to how one can overcome obstacles encountered in spiritual practices by being obedient to Guru's word and persisting in 'Sadhana'.
If we cultivate such qualities, our problems get easily solved. We cannot fix a time frame for spiritual progress. It is an endless process and might take longer time because man is only a spiritual child. Similar to the needs like food and exercise for child's growth, love, compassion, perseverance and devotion will make a man spiritually wise. Baba is easily accessible to the devotees. If we seek His support, by constant sadhana, it becomes easier for us to progress spiritually. Therefore, let us pray to Baba to crown our spiritual sadhana with success.
