Occupation

Here’s a short story from India about a man who was asked about his occupation, the man replied, “I am a farmer.”
The other guy replied, “You don’t look like a farmer. How much land do you have?”
The farmer said, “5 and a half feet.”
There was a loud laugh. “How much can you raise in 5 and a half feet of land?”
“This is very special soil,” said the farmer. “This body is my field, my thoughts and actions are the seeds and Karma, good and bad, is the harvest.”

A Wise Man is Happy Even in Bad Times

People who are willing to serve will have good times even in the bad times. when there are problems such as famine or war-torn countries, the Red Cross people will be fine as they are serving. The more relief they bring, the happier they feel. And people who are selfish and who just want to enjoy themselves will be miserable even in good times. Often the organizers of a party do not enjoy the party because some little thing is missing, they forgot to invite somebody, somebody did not come or some little thing went wrong.

A wise one is happy even in bad times. And the stupid one is unhappy even in good times.

You make the time good or bad. People usually blame the bad time and wait for the good time. Even if an astrologer says that you have a hopeless time, you can make it a good time!

Like weather, time has its own impact on you. But your Satsangs and sadhana are your shield, your protection! So realize that you are more than time and that you can move the time by your connection to the Divine.

Don’t feel shy to speak about human and spiritual values. Time has come now to call the whole world!

THE ALL is calling,

The ball is rolling!

Time is milling,

The Soul is willing.

Desiring is an art

The more the Sattva, the more fulfillment comes, and work that you undertake gets accomplished. The more you are in a joyful state, that much more of your work get completed. The lesser your cravings for your desires to get fulfilled, the more your desires get fulfilled. If you sit with new desires every minute then, our consciousness which is like a computer, gets confused – like how you commonly call it, ‘it hangs’ and abruptly stops working. Even in your cell phone, if you initiate too many operations all at once it will stop working. Just like a cell phone, our consciousness is like a big computer. That is why desiring is also an art, and having your desires fulfilled is also an art.

=====================

Q: Guruji, I can easily identify and witness my negative patterns, however, it is very difficult to break away from them. How does one break away from these patterns?

Guruji : Whatever you gain by effort has a limited age, and is for a limited time. What you gain by effortlessness is ageless and timeless.

The answer to your question is hidden in this answer somewhere; you dig into it. I have given you a formula. In this formula, anything that you achieve with effort will have a result that is time-bound and limited; it cannot be forever.  Anything that you get through effortlessness is timeless and painless.

Shanti mantra

Sometimes, some people at some places push your buttons more than other people. That is your tapasya, your sadhana. Be there, don’t run away, that is where your test is happening. It is a test as well as a practice. You have to endure that.

======================

Arguments and misunderstandings happen when both sides cooperate to fight. If the one side does not cooperate to fight, there will be no arguments.

======================

Q.: Why chant the shanti mantra three times after meditation? Does it have a different significance each time?

Guruji : No, no. It means ‘Inner peace, peace in the world, peace in the soul.

What is life?

What is life,is it full of joy?
What is life,is it full of sadness?
What is this life, is it full of care?
We have no time to stand and stare
no time to see when the flowers bloom
no time to see when trees we pass
where squirrels hide there nuts in grass
no time to see the beauty of daylight
no time to see sparkling stars at night
no time to see how beautiful she is,
with her glance
and watch her feet during the dance
no time to see the cute smile of my baby
is it my life busy or lazy?
is it my life full of care for others?
no time is for me and my dreams,
now i understand,
this is my life with no care

गीता -२—–. एकादशी से एकादशी तक ……

श्री गीताजी का काम सत्संग छोड़कर करना भी उत्तम है ।

श्री गीताजी की महिमा, श्रीगीताजी के प्रचार के बराबर लाभदायक दूसरा काम नहीं है, मेरे को जो कुछ लाभ देखने में आता है, वह श्री गीताजी का प्रभाव है ।

गौ, गीता, गंगा, गायत्री और गोविन्द का नाम । इन पाँचों की शरण से पूरन होवे काम ।। एक-एक की शरण से भी बेडा पार है । इनमे भी गीता और गोविन्द का नाम प्रधान है ।

गीता ज्ञान का प्रवाह है ।

भगवान की प्राप्ति के लिए श्रीगीता जी का अर्थसहित अभ्यास करना चाहिए ।

गीताजी का श्लोक अर्थ, भाव, विषयसहित जो याद करता है, वह पहली कक्षा पास है ।

गंगा तो जो उसमे जाकर स्नान करता है उसी को मुक्त करती है, परन्तु गीता तो घर-घरमें जाकर उन्हें मुक्ति का मार्ग दिखलाती है ।

गीता गायत्री से बढ़कर है, गायत्री जप से मनुष्य की मुक्ति होती है, यह बात ठीक है, किन्तु गायत्री-जप करने वाला भी स्वयं ही मुक्त होता है, पर गीता का अभ्यास करने वाला तो तरन-तारण बन जाता है । जब मुक्ति के दाता स्वयं भगवान ही उसके हो जाते है, तब मुक्ति की तो बात ही क्या है । मुक्ति उसकी चरणधूलि में निवास करती है । मुक्ति का तो वह सत्र खोल देता है ।

वास्तव में गीताके सामान संसार में यज्ञ, दान, तप, तीर्थ, व्रत, संयम और उपवास आदि कुछ नहीं है ।

पारस पत्थर

‘एक बहुत गरीब आदमी था। अचानक उसे कहीं से पारस-पत्थर मिल गया। बस फिर क्या था! वह किसी भी लोहे की वस्तु को छूकर सोना बना देता। देखते ही देखते वह बहुत धनवान बन गया।’

बूढ़ी दादी माँ अक्सर ‘पारस पत्थर’ वाली कहानी सुनाया करती थी। वह कब का बचपन की दहलीज लांघ कर जवानी में प्रवेश कर चुका था किंतु जब-तब किसी न किसी से पूछता रहता, “आपने पारस पत्थर देखा है?”

उससे इस प्रश्न का प्राय: उत्तर मिलता, “नहीं!”

आज भी उसने एक व्यक्ति से फिर वही प्रश्न किया तो आशा के विपरीत उत्तर पाकर वह दंग रह गया।

‘हाँ, मैंने देखा है। मेरे पास है।”

“आपके पास है?कहाँ है, दिखाइए?”

“तुम्हें विश्वास नहीं हो रहा?”

“जी, मुझे विश्वास नहीं हो रहा!” उसने जिज्ञासा दिखाई।

उस आदमी ने अपने दोनों हाथ आगे बढ़ाते हुए कहा, “बस यही हाथ हैं पारस पत्थर। मेहनत करो इनसे और कर्मयोगी बनो।”

उस आदमी की बात सुनकर उसे लगा जैसे सचमुच उसे ‘पारस पत्थर’ मिल गया हो। वह मन ही मन खूब मेहनत करने का संकल्प करते हुए अपने दोनों हाथों को निहारने लगा।
