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....

Sri Krishna Janmashtami celebrates the birthday of Lord Krishna and is observed on the eighth day of the Shukla Paksha of Bhadrapad month as per traditional calendar followed in North India. The corresponding months in other region is the Shravan month. In 2012, the date of Janmashtami in North India is August 10 and in other parts it is on August 9. In Tamil Nadu, it is observed on September 8, 2012. In Kerala, Sri Krishna Janmashtami is on September 8, 2012.
Tamil Nadu and Kerala follow solar calendars and the festival is observed annually in Tamil month Aavani and Malayalam Chingam month in Kerala. Once in three years there is a difference in dates in calendars followed in other regions (which is lunar calendar) with the calendars followed in these two states.

Detail 2012 dates of Sri Krishna Janmashtami
  • Maharashtra, certain communities in Gujarat, Assam, Bengal, Orissa, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and those people that follow Smarta Tradition - August 9
  • North India, Gujarat (Dwaraka Temple), Vaishnava tradition in all regions - Sri Krishna Janmashtami is on August 10. (vrat or fasting in North India is on August 10).
  • Dahi Handi and Gopalakala in Maharashtra is on August 10.
  • Vittal Pindi at Udupi Sri Krishna Temple - August 10
  • Kalo in Goa - August 10
  • Tamil Nadu and Kerala (Ashtami Rohini ) - September 8, 2012 (Here Janmashtami takes place on Rohini Nakshatram in Aavani and Chingam months - these two months begin only by mid august.)
Sri Krishna Jayanti or Sri Krishna Janmashtami is the birthday of Lord Krishna. It is also referred as Gokulashtami or Krishnaashtami or Sri Jayanti. Like the numerous names of the festival, Sri Krishna Jayanti is celebrated by different Hindu sects on two different days. The true significance of Sri Krishna is that he is relevant in the present and even more relevant for the future.
A twenty-four hour fast is observed on Sri Krishna Jayanti and this is broken at midnight. The most important mantra recited on the day is Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya.’
The significance of Sri Krishna is that he used his life to explain to us the great teachings in Upanishads. In true sense, he is the Upanishad man. He lived in the moment. He was not an escapist from life. He accepted life in its entirety. He made life a celebration. He was the ever smiling god and that smile continues to conquer millions of hearts. Throughout, his life there was music and just before getting killed by the hunter’s bow he was playing the flute. Music and that immortal smile were present in his death.For many god is a commander, one who grants boons, one who automatically solves problems in life but Sri Krishna will never automatically solve your problems. This he demonstrated in the Kurukshetra while delivering the Bhagavad Gita. Krishna never took up arms but instead gave the right direction to Arjuna. In Kurukshetra, Sri Krishna was trying to make us understand the foolishness in expecting someone above (god) to deliver the goods. We have to perform the actions and each action will have a fruit.Sri Krishna is full of life. He showed us the way to live in the modern society. He showed us the concept of Brahman – that life is a continuity. He taught us to remain detached and neutral. Live in the moment and life will be a celebration.

Wishing you and your loved ones a very Happy and Blessed Janmashtami..
Devon ka Dev Mahadev- Watch Online- 8th August 2012
Devon Ke Dev…Mahadev 8th August 2012 Written Update by mnx12
The shringar Priya Vishnuji is at work. Short hairs, Bajubandh, necklace with other pcs of jewellery, new dress. Our groom is getting ready. Outside the Shringar room, Saptarishis & Devas are wondering how much more time for Shivji’s Shringar to get over as the auspicious muhurt has already started.
Vishnuji comes out opening the door, Nandi asks him is the dressing up over? Vishnuji says Shivji is ready for the marriage.
Ganga is thinking will this new roop be liked by mother or not.
And walks in with style, the most handsome groom with the rishis. Himavan, Mena, Sati’s sisters, Nani everyone is pleasantly surprised by this new look. Everyone is speechless.
Shivji is smiling, all the Devatas, Vishnuji , Brhmaji Lakshmiji, saraswatiji, Anasuya looks extremely pleased.
In a telepathic convo between Mena- Shivji.
Mena: No one must have imagined such a roop of yours.
Shivji : Have you accepted me as your Jamata?
Mena: All the doubts of my mind are washed away seeing you in this roop. Please forgive me for my mistake.
Shivji : You only wished for your daughter’s wellbeing. Mata, you are not at fault.
Mena happily comes foreword, puts tilak, does aarati , tells Ganga to get Paravti. Paravti comes with Jaymala in her hand. Shivji is just looking at Parvati only & everyone else is admiring them.
In a Telepathic convo between Shivji- Paravtai:
Shivji: Just give me a look, my changed roop is incompelete unless you see it.
Parvati: I want to see you too but, I am hesitant can’t lift my eyes up.
Everyone is showering flowers on them. Brihaspati, Vishnuji, Brhmaji, Sarasvatiji, Lakshmiji, Shukracharya, the saptarishis, Devatas, all are happy.
Parvati puts Jaymala around Shivji’s neck. Ganas are dancing. Ganga gives a garland to Shivji, which he puts around Paravti’s neck among the chants of Har Har Mahadev. Tears of happiness are rolling out of Mena’s eyes. She says she is fortunate to welcome Shivji. They enter inside the palace among chants of HarHhar Mahadev.
Inside the palace, Himavan washes Shivji’s feet with water, milk. Everyone is admiring this sight. Rishi Garag tell Himavan to wash Barati’s feet. He does so for the Saptarishis,Brihaspati, Shukracharya, Naradji. They bless him. He washes feet of the Ganas too who hesitates but lets him do so. Shivji & parvati are watching this happily.
Rishi Garas tells Himavan to start Vadhu satkar. Nani says that’s groom’s father’s responsibality. Everyone is trying to find the answer.
Shivji says when Mata Anasuya had compeleted all the duties of a mother then father’s duty should be compeleted by rishi Atri.
Hearing this rishi Atri is owewhelmed says, I am a normal human, you have proved today how much you care for your devotees. You have made me the most fortunate today. Rishi Atri compeletes the vidhi of Vadhu-satkar by giving fruits etc to Parvati.
Next Rishi Garg says now other vidhis will be after bhojan. Nani invites everyone for bhojan.
In a Telepathic convo between Shivji & Parvati, he asks her to look at him.
Next there is a curtain between them. One side Var-paksh with Shivji & the other side Vadhu-paksh with Paravti. Both are sitting for bhojan. Now Parvati feeling shy lifts her eyes, looks at Shivji, who is eagerly waiting for her to see him.
Precap: Shivji starts eating, he finishes all the cooked food made for everyone. Himavan is surprised, others are surprised & worried too, they don’t know what to do. Parvati is thinking, Shivji gives her a mischivious smile.
Let us Utilize the God's Gifts of Talent

Every human being is gifted with a talent, which is latent in him. The talent, merit and ability are all but the divine gifts. God appreciates if we make a good and effective use of the talents He gifted us with. The more we make a greater use of our talents, the more our ability and efficiency would increase. Hence, we should not hesitate to put our efforts, befitting our abilities.
Just as a bumper harvest is reaped by sowing seeds and cultivating with care, so also we are assured of God's blessings when we repose faith in Him and render selfless service to the society by the talents He gifted us. Depending on individual talents, each person will have a different set of skills. A singer, by singing hymns in praise of the glories of God, can inculcate devotion in the hearts of people. Another one could beautifully describe God, His divine works in a fascinating manner and can create picture of God in the eye of public mind. Thus, if we make proper use of our talents, the Omnipresent Sai will richly reward us with His Grace. The Creator will be highly pleased if we devotionally offer a garland of flowers as service to Him from the very flowers He has created. If we put our Baba-blessed talents in serving and making people happier, Baba would be immensely pleased. We, therefore, shall become pure souls worthy of dwelling in Him.
