Happiness comes from within but most seek it outside

The most basic trait of human nature to seek happiness. It is amazing to see what all man does to find happiness; the list goes on and on endlessly. In reality, happiness comes from within but most seek it outside. The senses can give pleasure but the soul craves for something more. When sense pleasures are not enough, one seeks an ethereal experience. This impulse of seeking is present in everybody and is the beginning of one’s spiritual journey. Unfortunately, many people are tempted to take shortcuts in this quest for joy and end up with drugs. Drugs seem to give a high and people do say they take one to an altered state of consciousness. However, the after effects leave the system totally shattered eventually. One’s aspiration to find freedom, love and happiness leaves them with bondage, despondency and misery. Having something is not joyful but not having it is painful – this is the state of addiction.

Spirituality has a big role to play in dealing with such a situation. Meditation, breathing techniques, pranayam and satsang have helped millions around the world to overcome addiction over substances and alcohol. Many people have shared that they feel the same high after doing meditation that they used to feel after taking drugs but without their damaging consequences. Scientists say that psychoactive drugs are addictive because they cause a surge in dopamine, a neurotransmitter associated with happiness and contentment. Research has shown that meditation increases dopamine levels naturally by an average of 65%. A session of group singing or satsang also leaves one exhilerated and energised for many hours. These practices build strength in the mind so that one doesn’t feel the need to rely on external substances to feel an inner high.

Another thing that is important in rehabilitation is developing an attitude of service. A ‘what more can I get’ mindset leads to obsession and depression while a ‘how can I serve’ attitude leads to joy and freedom. This shift in attitude brings a sense of purpose to anybody’s life, but more so for someone on the path to recovery. With a firm resolve and the right effort in the right direction, the old patterns of addiction begin to loosen their grip and true freedom begins to dawn.

Apart from its remedial effect in drug rehabilitation, spirituality is very effective in prevention of this malaise as well. Youth who have a spiritual bent of mind do not take to drugs easily. Spirituality builds a value-based character in a person which acts as a shield against unhealthy peer pressure.

Invariably, short term joy ends up as long term misery and it is spiritual education alone that gives the wisdom to choose a little discomfort in the short term that finally leads to long lasting happiness.

The fruits of your deeds are good or bad according to the choice you make

Q: Does contentment make you lazy?

Guruji : What do you think? There is a lot of difference between laziness and contentment. One who is contented has more energy. Is there energy in a lazy person?
===================

You always have the choice to do good or bad. The fruits of your deeds are good or bad according to the choice you make.
===================
It is alright to be angry, but only for a few seconds or a few minutes. But, if it surpasses days and months, it is disastrous.
===================
Heart Song

 Everyone has a song in their heart. Everyone has a reason for being here and a season for making their highest, greatest most auspicious contribution. No one knows what that is or when that is for anyone else. Only our own heart knows what and when it is for us. Your heart wants to sing. Don’t die with your music still within you.

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

Problems should be taken as an opportunity to be prayerful, and in gratitude.

God as a Child

Can you see God as a child? You have always thought of God as a father, up in the heavens somewhere. Can you see God as a child?

God is the very core of your existence. You are pregnant with God. You have to take care of your pregnancy and deliver the child into the world. Most people do not even deliver. One who delivers can also grant wishes.

God is your child. He/She clings onto to you like a baby till you grow old and die. God keeps crying for nourishment. God clings onto the devotee. He/She needs you to nourish Him/Her in the world. Sadhana, Satsang and Seva are the nourishment.

You always think of God as a father. Then you want to demand and take from God. But when you see God as a child, you have no demands.

Student says: You cannot pray to a child; you can only pray to your father.

Guruji : Why do you want to pray? Why do you want to ask? A good father knows what to give.

Student : What about surrender?

Guruji : Your surrender to a child is more authentic as it has no demand.

TAKE CARE OF YOUR GOD! Atheists are around the corner! Doubts, disbelief and ignorance are atheists in your mind, so better take care of your God!

This body is like a musical instrument what you hear depends on how you play

One can but rarely get a definite decision on any problem

At least you have understood that there is a state, ’where’ problems are no longer settled in any particular way. In the course of your life you have after careful consideration come to a decision on many questions, have you not? But now you will have to realize that no solution is ever conclusive; in other words, you will have to go beyond the level where there is certainty and uncertainty. The resolution of a problem arrived at by the mind must of necessity be from a particular point of view; consequently there will be room for contradiction, since your solution represents but one aspect. What then have you actually solved? You will find a complete and final solution of each particular question from its own particular angle of emergence; and you will also find that there is a place where all problems (actual and possible) have but one universal solution, in which there is no longer any room left for contradiction. The question of solution or non-solution will then cease to arise: whether one says ‘yes’ or ‘no’, – everything is THAT.

The World As Divine Playground

The world is the Vrindavan Leela or divine playground of the Supreme. Nothing is to be shunned, for you are all the while in It (Mahanam). That you have forgotten this is the root cause of your misery. The world is real. We have come here to taste the blissful rapture of His Manifestation. By doing our duties which come from His will, we relish His love and bliss.

Brahmn is manifestation and Brahmnmayi is part of it; Creation began with them. Why not accept the saying, “God in His Supreme playfulness, by mere resolve, has been inclined to create the worlds and they were created forthwith.” The world is not non-existent, for only on this earth human beings can savour Divinity . That being so, how can the world be illusory? Whatever you may call it, Maya or Yogamaya, it also has an Existence. It also is a manifestation of Supreme Energy .

But the strength to make progress on the path of emancipation, realisation and salvation out of the hold of this Maya, is also given by Him. The spiritual world is a reality and not a figment of imagination.

Substance is One. You talk about materialism and spiritualism. Try to change your vision.

Then everything will be clear. Just imagine the origin of this universe, dive deep into the fundamental. This universe as we find it today is the result of a long process of steady evolution. You proceed from the general to the particular. Realise that Absolute Truth. There is a stage even before sound. But ultimately , the general and the particular become identical.

There are so many worlds…same thing. All temporary , everything is temporary . All worlds are mutually exclusive. How can one go from one to another? All worlds are interrelated. So, if there be unrest on earth, that will invade regions like the heavens also.

The world is an organic whole. The solar system can be penetrated in a moment’s thought. Science is able to create space vehicles and go to the moon. It can also go to other planets. There is nothing new in this. It is Mahajnana (Supreme Knowledge) that flows along, encircling the countless worlds.

Manifestation of God is the universe. The world is an escapable reality . Space and time each have infinite dimensions. Every segment of space is present in every other segment.
Every split second also is present in every other second. So, space and time are both ubiquitous. In fact, time is a ceaseless duration and space an unfettered expanse.

Matter is One. Indistinguishable, it wears different looks on different occasions. There is no dichotomy of matter and spirit. They are one Integer; that is the sole reality. The new year of the calendar is a human creation.

In mind is the space-time complex, but He is beyond time and space. The mind gets fullness of right vision or enlightenment when, while being in this body , it becomes conscious of Him. Then, that moment is mind’s New Year, a new birth of light.

 In that state, one loses the boastful I-sense in one’s activities and even if the senses and desires drive the mind, the bridle is held by the Lord Himself, or the Nam, so that one cannot . go astray . But nobody feels grateful that He, . All-merciful, continuously showers His Grace on beings.

The one who can fully relish and utilise the present, without worrying about present, past and future, he really enjoys the state of Vraja, His Love.

यज्ञ /हवन के लाभ…

यज्ञ के पीछे एक सांइटिफिक कारण होता है क्योँकि यज्ञ मेँ सब जड़ी बूटियाँ ही डाली जाती हैँ। आम की लकड़ी, देशी घी, तिल, जौँ, शहद, कपूर, अगर तगर, गुग्गुल, लौँग, अक्षत, नारियल शक्कर और अन्य निर्धारित आहूतियाँ भी बनस्पतियाँ ही होती हैँ।

नवग्रह के लिए आक, पलाश, खैर,शमी,आपामार्ग, पीपल, गूलर, कुश, दूर्वा आदि सब आयुर्वेद मेँ प्रतिष्ठित आषधियाँ हैँ। यज्ञ करने पर मंत्राचार के द्वारा न सिर्फ ये और अधिक शक्तिशाली हो जाती हैँ बल्कि मंत्राचार और इन जड़ीबूटियोँ के धुएँ से यज्ञकर्ता/ यजमान / रोगी की आंतरिक बाह्य और मानसिक शुद्धि भी होती है। साथ ही मानसिक और शारीरिक बल तथा सकारात्मक ऊर्जा भी मिलती है।

अधार्मिक, नास्तिक, तर्कवादी और पश्चिमी सभ्यता के चाटुकार आधुनिकतावादी और अतिवैज्ञानिक लोग यज्ञ के लाभ को नकारते हैँ परन्तु यज्ञ के मूल को नहीँ समझते ।

हमारे पूर्वजोँ ने इसे यूँ ही महत्व नहीँ दिया, यज्ञ मेँ जो आहूतियाँ देते है, तब यज्ञ की अग्नि मेँ या इतने हाई टेम्परेचर मेँ Organic material जल जाता है और inorgnic residue शेष रह जाता है जो दो प्रकार का होता है। एक ओर कई complex chemical compounds टूट कर सिम्पल या सरल रूप मेँ आ जाते है वहीँ कुछ सरल और जटिल react कर और अधिक complex compound बनाते हैँ। ये सब यज्ञ के धुएँ के साथ शरीर मेँ श्वास और त्वचा से प्रवेश करते हैँ और उसे स्वस्थ बनाते हैँ।

कई बार आपने सुना होगा कि किसी बाबा ने भभूत खिलाकर रोगी को ठीक कर दिया या फलाँ जगह मँदिर आश्रम आदि की भभूत से चमत्कार हुऐ, रोगी ठीक हुए यह सत्य होता है और उसका वैज्ञानिक कारण मैँ आपको ऊपर बता चुका हूँ ।

इसी प्रकार यज्ञ की शेष भभूत सिर्फ चुटकी भर माथे पर लगाने और खाने पर बेहद लाभ देती है क्योँकि micronised/ nano particles के रूप मेँ होती है और शरीर के द्वारा बहुत आसानी से अवशोषित(absorb) कर ली जाती है। जिस हवन मेँ जौँ एवं तिल मुख्य घटक यानि आहूति सामग्री के रूप मेँ उपयोग किये गये होँ बहाँ से थोड़ी सी भभूत प्रसाद स्वरूप ले लेँ और बुखार, खाँसी, पेट दर्द, कमजोरी तथा मूत्र विकार आदि मेँ एक चुटकी सुबह शाम पानी से फाँक ले तो दो तीन दिन मेँ ही आराम मिल जाता है। साथ ही यज्ञादि से वर्षा भी अच्छी होती है जिससे अन्न जल की कोई कमी नहीँ होती ये भी प्रमाणिक है।
धन्यवाद।

केरॉली टेकक्स

केरॉली टेकक्स, ये नाम शायद किसी ने नहीं सुना होगा, लेकिन हंगरी में वे एक हीरो की तरह मानते हैं| उनकी संघर्ष और जुनून की कहानी आपको भी टेकक्स का फ़ैन होने पर मजबूर कर देगी| 1938 में टेकक्स हंगरी की आर्मी के सिपाही थे और दुनियाँ के टॉप पिस्टल शूटरों में शुमार थे| वो 1940 में टोक्यो मे होने वाले Olympic में गोल्ड मेडल जितना चाहते थे| लेकिन Olympic कुछ समय पहले ही उनके सारे अरमान धूमिल हो गये| एक ट्रैनिंग के दौरान एक बॉम्ब टेकक्स के हाथ में ही फट गया और उसने अपना दाहिना हाथ गवाँ दिया|काफ़ी दिन उसे अस्पताल में रहना पड़ा और इसी के साथ उसका Olympic जीतने का सपना भी टूट गया| हममें से ज़्यादातर लोग ऐसा होने पर हार कर बैठ जाते या भाग्य को दोष देते लेकिन टेकक्स ने ऐसा नहीं किया|

अपनी विफलता पर आँसू बहाने की बज़ाए वो बाँये हाथ से पिस्टल चलाने की practice करने लगा| 1939 मे हंगरी में पिस्टल शूटिंग championship का आयोजन हुआ टेकक्स भी वहाँ पहुचे| लोगों को लगा की वो प्रतियोगिता देखने आया है, लेकिन जब उन्होनें सुना कि वो प्रतियोगिता देखने नहीं बल्कि उसमें हिस्सा लेने आए हैं तो सारे लोग अचंभे मे पड़ गये| किसी को विश्वास नहीं हुआ लेकिन टेकक्स उस प्रतियोगिता में चॅंपियन बने|

1948 में फिर से जब ओलिंपिक का आयोजन हुआ तो टेकक्स को अपनी उम्मीदों को साकार करने का मौका मिला और वे गोल्ड मेडल जीत गये और 38 की उम्र के ये खिताब लेकर विश्व रिकॉर्ड कायम किया |

टेकक्स के अनुसार मानसिक रूप के मजबूत व्यक्ति जीवन में हर मुश्किलों का सामना कर सकता है| उनकी जगह कोई और होता तो कब का जिंदगी से हार मान चुका होता, टेकक्स भी वैसा कर सकता था और अपने भाग्य या भगवान को इसके लिए दोष दे सकता था लेकिन नहीं| लेकिन नहीं एक हारा हुआ इंसान फिर से उठ खड़ा हुआ और उसने अपने हॉंसलों से साबित कर दिया कि अगर कोई इंसान ठान ले तो दुनियाँ की कोई ताक़त उसे नहीं रोक सकती.

आपको ये कहानी कैसी लगी हमे जरुर बताये ।
