How can being spiritual be a sin?

Q: Guruji, religion has become an obstacle in my life. I cannot move forward. What should I do?

Guruji: Never mind. Move from religion to spirituality. You are a spiritual being, and that is good enough. Every religion has some nice things to offer. Take a little bit from all the religions in the world and move on. You don’t have to be stuck with it. Don’t worry. Nothing can be an obstacle if you don’t allow it. It is you, your own mind which makes it into an obstacle. It is because you have been put with the guilt, that maybe you’re sinning against god. How can being spiritual be a sin! How could being happy be a sin. How could being loving and doing good in the world be a sin? How could becoming still, calm and being devoted be a sin?It is guilt and the fear of sin that has been induced into the minds of people, ‘Oh don’t do this, God will punish you’. A sense of complete desperation and weakness comes.

गरीब ब्रह्मण

एक गरीब ब्रह्मण था . उसको अपनीं कन्या का विवाह करना था . उसने विचार किया कि कथा करने से कुछ पैसा आ जायेगा तो काम चल जाये गा . ऐसा विचार करके उसने भगवन राम के एक मंदिर में बैठ कर कथा अर्रम्भ कर दी . उसका भाव यह था कि कोई श्रोता आये, चाहे न आये पर भगवन तो मेरी कथा सुनेंगे !

पंडित जी कथा में थोड़े से श्रोता आने लगे एक बहुत कंजूस सेठ था. एक दिन वह मंदिर में आया. जब वह मंदिर कि परोकरम कर रहा था, तब भीतर से कुछआवाज आई. ऐसा लगा कि दो व्यक्ति आपस में बात कर रहे हैं. सेठ ने कान लगा कर सुना. भगवन राम हनुमान जी से कह रहे थे कि इस गरीब ब्रह्मण के लिए सौ रूपए का कर देना, जिससे कन्यादान ठीक हो जाये.हनुमान जी ने कहा ठीक है महाराज !इसके सौ रूपए पैदा हो जायेंगे. सेठ ने
यह सुना तो वह कथा समाप्ति के बाद पंडित जी से मिले और उनसे कहा कि महाराज !कथा में रूपए पैदा हो रहें कि नहीं? पंडित जी बोले श्रोता बहुत कम आतें हैं तो रूपए कैसे पैदा हों. सेठ ने कहा कि मेरी एक शर्त है कथा में जितना पैसा आये वह मेरे को दे देना और मैं आप को पचास रूपए दे दूंगा. पंडित जी ने सोचा कि उसके पास कौन से इतने पैसे आतें हैं पचास रूपए तो मिलेंगे, पंडित जी ने सेठ कि बात मान ली उन दिनों पचास रूपए बहुत सा धन होता था . इधर सेठ कि नीयत थी कि भगवान् कि आज्ञा का पालन करने हेतु हनुमान जी सौ रूपए पंडित जी को जरूर देंगे. मुझे सीधे सीधे पचास रूपए का फैयदा हो रहा है. जो लोभी आदमी होते हैं वे पैसे के बारे में ही सोचते हैं. सेठ ने भगवान् जी कि बातें सुनकर भी भक्ति कि और ध्यान नहीं दिया बल्कि पैसे कि और आकर्षित हो गए.

अब सेठ जी कथा के उपरांत पंडित जी के पास गए और उनसे कहने लगे कि कितना रुपया आया है , सेठ के मन विचार था कि हनुमान जी सौ रूपए तो भेंट में जरूर दिलवाएंगे , मगर पंडित जी नहा कहा कि पञ्च सात रूपए ही आयें हैं. अब सेठ को शर्त के मुताबिक पचास रूपए पंडित जी को देने पड़े. सेठ को हनुमान जी पर बहुत ही गुस्सा आ रहा था कि उन्हों ने पंडित जी को सौ रूपए नहीं दिए ! वह मंदिर में गया और हनुमान जी कि मूर्ती पर घूँसा मारा. घूँसा मरते ही सेठ का हाथ मूर्ती पर चिपक गया अब सेठ जोर लगाये अपना हाथ छुड़ानेके लिए पर नाकाम रहा हाथ हनुमान जी कि पकड़ में ही रहा . हनुमान जी किसीको पकड़ लें तो वह कैसे छूट सकता है.सेठ को फिर आवाज सुनाई दी. उसने धयान से सुना, भगवन हनुमान जी से पूछ रहे थे कि तुमने ब्रह्मण को सौ रूपए दिलाये कि नहीं ? हनुमान जीने कहा ‘महाराज पचास रूपए तो दिला दिए हैं, बाकी पचास रुपयों के लिए सेठ को पकड़ रखा है ! वह पचास रूपए दे देगा तो छोड़ देंगे’

सेठ ने सुना तो विचार किया कि मंदिर में लोग आकर मेरे को देखें गे तो बड़ी बेईज्ज़ती होगी ! वह चिल्लाकर बोला ‘हनुमान जी महाराज ! मेरे को छोड़ दो, मैं पचास रूपय दे दूं गा !’ हनुमान जी ने सेठ को छोड़ दिया! सेठ ने जाकर पंडित जी को पचास रूपए दे दिए.

Which political party to vote for?

Q: Guruji, how do I know which political party to vote for?

Guruji : In my opinion, first we should not let anybody remain in power for too long. We should keep changing parties. Power corrupts people. Even good people become bad. Therefore, we should give holidays to everybody, and let them churn themselves. Without giving a holiday to somebody, and extracting too much work out of them is like making the same horse over-run, then it will become lame.

Think of all political parties and politicians as horses. Tell them to work and if they get tired, give them some rest. Eat, rest, and recuperate for five years, then come back. You should hold the horses’ reins in your hands. If the horses run without their reins, we don’t know where the horses or the country will end up running. It is the youth who should hold the reins! I think this is a good idea

The story of a woodcutter

The-Woodcutter

Once upon a time, a very strong woodcutter asked for a job in a timber merchant and he got it. The pay was really good and so was the work condition. For those reasons, the woodcutter was determined to do his best.

His boss gave him an axe and showed him the area where he supposed to work.

The first day, the woodcutter brought 18 trees.

“Congratulations,” the boss said. “Go on that way!”

Very motivated by the boss words, the woodcutter tried harder the next day, but he could only bring 15 trees. The third day he tried even harder, but he could only bring 10 trees. Day after day he was bringing less and less trees.

“I must be losing my strength”, the woodcutter thought. He went to the boss and apologized, saying that he could not understand what was going on.

“When was the last time you sharpened your axe?” the boss asked.

“Sharpen? I had no time to sharpen my axe. I have been very busy trying to cut trees…”

Reflection:

Our lives are like that. We sometimes get so busy that we don’t take time to sharpen the “axe”. In today’s world, it seems that everyone is busier than ever, but less happy that ever.

Why is that? Could it be that we have forgotten how to stay “sharp”? There’s nothing wrong with activity and hard work. But we should not get so busy that we neglect the truly important things in life, like our personal life, taking time to get close to our Creator, giving more time for our family, taking time to read etc.

We all need time to relax, to think and meditate, to learn and grow. If we don’t take the time to sharpen the “axe”, we will become dull and lose our effectiveness.

Learn How To Handle Our Mind Through Our Breath

We can handle pent up emotions, if we learn how to handle our mind through our breath. This is very important.

In schools we teach dental hygiene, but not mental hygiene. Whether one is a professional or a business man, they need to know mental hygiene.

Huge emotional loads weighs on many people, right from the young mind to senior citizens. Neither at school nor home, no one teaches us how to handle our mental or emotional pressure. This emotional cleansing, emotional hygiene, or feeling light hearted from within needs to be taught, and it can bring about a big transformation in society.

Then you will see a violence-free society, disease-free body, confusion-free mind, inhibition-free intellect, trauma-free memory and sorrow-free soul, and we can have a better, happier and prosperous society.

Saambasiva

The Lord Shiva has another name. It is only when the love principle underlying this name is rightly understood, the real form of the Cosmos can be recognized. That name is Saambasiva. Saa means divinity. Amba refers to the cosmos. Siva means the Supreme person (Purusha).

Easwara has yet another name: Yogasikha. The sky is His blue form. The directions (Dik) are His garment. Hence He is known as Digambara. He is also known as Panchaanana – the Five-headed One. The five are: Earth, water, fire and aakaasa (space). His five heads represent the five basic elements (panchabhuthas). Siva is also described as Bhuthanaatha – the Lord of all created beings. Bhutha refers to creation. Easwara is the Lord of every creature in the universe. Hence, the entire cosmos is reflected as an image in the Lord. Siva is known as Subhankara- the one who is ever good (Subham).
