Meditation & Japa nama


Meditation & Japa nama
 
In this dark age (Kali Yuga) the mind of man is weak and restless from the first day of birth. Because of this, no one is able to do the real practice of meditation anymore, but everyone can pray and repeat and chant the name of the Lord, using whichever divine name his religion teaches.

One Universal Family


👪 One Universal Family 👪
~ 'The Teachings of Babaji'

"Everyone should forget nationality; we are one here. This is a universal family. Have no idea of separation of identity; discard feelings of separateness. Serve the people with mind, body, wealth, brain"
- Dec. 16, 1981
 
"I do not recognize castes and races. I behold only one humanity. I am working for mankind while here"
- June 21, 1982

"Shri Babaji teaches us about the unity of creation. We are all made from the five elements; we are all of one spirit. In all respects, we are one humanity, one human family. Limitations arise from political beliefs and world leaders who mold thinking to time, place and culture, thereby creating differences and separateness. The birthright of all mankind is to love and follow God. Limitations arise from erroneous human beliefs. Shri Babaji has appeared to illumine the minds and hearts of mankind, so that unity and harmony may be known to all.

Practice Karma Yoga and progress

 
Practice Karma Yoga and progress
 
23 September 1983

"... So all of you have to go beyond the fear of death and the hope of life and go on doing Karma Yoga. Karma Yoga is the only type of yoga that gives immediate results. Whatever you do in the morning, you can see the results in the evening, standing before you like a picture. The seeds sown in the morning sprout by the evening. The farmer harvests the results of his Karma Yoga after six months. Everyone does Karma naturally, no one can remain without it. We must perform those actions which will benefit others - and not only other people but the whole of Creation.

"It is of no use to give birth to millions of sheep. One hard working human being is enough to save the world. We must all become hard working and teach coming generations as well. All other forms of yoga come second only to Karma Yoga because the whole world is maintained by Karma. So practice Karma Yoga and progress. People in the world nowadays have become very cowardly. That is why we have to be courageous, adventurous.

Bhole Baba Ki Jai!

Babaji's Lila with Shdema


Babaji's Lila with Shdema

Babaji would allow people to stay in His ashram for limited times, according to whatever that person needed to learn from Him. For some people it would be one day, other a few days, and for some, if they were lucky, a few weeks or even months. The intensity of energy, just being around Babaji, was sometimes overwhelming, and He would certainly “crack your ease”.

“Babaji’s ability to read my thoughts often amazed me to no end. At first, it scared the daylights out of me; then I found it amusing and even exhilarating; soon I got used to it. Everyone around me took it as a matter of fact that Babaji knew not only their thoughts, but their every activity and conversation, near or far away. I also experienced this phenomenon.

“It was during my second visit to Babaji that I suddenly felt that I was crazy to be there, so far away from home, away from my husband, my son, my work, my style of life, etc. I was out in the jungle with snakes, and with worms in my stool. I had insects biting me all night long. It was hot.

“I wondered, am I a masochist or what? What did I need all this for? So I decided to ask Babaji specifically what it is He can teach me. I thought to myself that if He could teach me teleportation, then it would be worth my while to endure the suffering.

“I gathered courage, for it had been recommended to me to never ask Him for anything. I had been told that He knows exactly what I need and that He would supply me with the appropriate teachings at the right time. Still, I asked Him, ‘What can you teach me, and can I learn teleportation?’
“He answered, ‘I can teach you how to be silent and how to obey my orders. You talk too much, I don’t like people that talk too much … you can leave tomorrow.’

“So I had to leave the next day. A part of me was happy, and a part was sad. I packed my luggage and was ready to leave. As I sat on the steps, waiting for the horse, after I had said goodbye to everyone, I closed my eyes and started to question myself: ‘Where did I go wrong? What did I do? All I asked was whether you could teach me teleportation.’

“What I heard in my mind was: ‘You have too many desires.’ ‘Aha! So that’s what it was,’ I thought. Okay, I was willing to let go of all my desires. I tuned inward to make sure that I meant it, and I saw a few desires here and there that I did not think I could let go of.

“I started repeating silently in my mind that I was now truly willing to give up all my desires. To make sure that I really meant it, I repeated it with my name. ‘I, Shdema, am willing to give up all of my desires.’ I felt that I was sincere. I opened my eyes and saw Babaji standing right next to me. He told me, ‘You can stay.’ I smiled and took my luggage back to my room.”

(Dr. Shdema Goodman, Psychologist, U.S.A., 1986. Extract from her book, Babaji, Meeting with Truth, at HaidakhanVishwa Mahadham, Page 64.)

Desire is the beginning of separation and suffering.


God and Maya Are One

13 October 1983

Today I asked Babaji in what sense Maya, the Cosmic Illusion, exists...

and He answered,

"That 'what is existing' is the Projection we make on reality; our Dream exists, but it is just our imagination." He added a song: ‘God and Maya are One together. Nothing of what’s existing can be different from its Creator.

Shastriji, Babaji's High Priest, explained to me that things in themselves are not good or bad, because everything that exists comes from the Divine, even that which is apparently negative; it is an illusion to think otherwise, the result of ignorance, born out of our attachment.

Desire is the beginning of separation and suffering. In the Christian religion the concept of separation is symbolized by original sin and whatever meaning or significance we wish to give to the famous apple, it’s the symbol of a personal desire and a lack of surrender to Divine Will.

“La mahakranti (destrucción, limpieza total, revolución) es necesaria y inevitable

“La mahakranti (destrucción, revolución, limpieza total) es necesaria! Por dos motivos, porque los hombres solo piensan en 'yo' y 'mío' – esto no es la verdad, no es el camino, no es el amor; pues todos quieren ser grandes y nadie sabe ser pequeño”, “por esto ella es inevitable”.
Muchas veces, principalmente en los últimos años y meses, Babaji llamo la atención que una gran transformación (mahakranti) sería inevitable. También hablo repetidamente de como seria y que hacer para sobrevivir a ella. 
El día que dejo su cuerpo, habían algunos discípulos y visitas a su alrededor en cuanto él silenciosamente observaba un mapamundi y después, muy serio, comenzó a ojear un libro con ilustraciones sobre Hiroshima que alguien le había traído. Súbitamente, en el silencio que se había instalado a su alrededor, levantó la cabeza y, en cuanto miraba con un aire distante, dijo: “La mahakranti (destrucción, revolución, limpieza total) es necesaria! Por dos motivos”, en ese momento él se puso de pie, de modo que casi parecía amenazador, “porque los hombres solo piensan en 'yo' y 'mío' – esto no es la verdad, no es el camino, no es el amor; pues todos quieren ser grandes y nadie sabe ser pequeño”. Suspirando profundamente se dejó caer en su silla y añadiendo con voz suave, casi inaudible: “por esto ella es inevitable”.
Él vino como una inspiración de esta revolución, en favor de una gran conversión del espíritu, del pensamiento y del sentimiento. Al mismo tiempo, enfatizaba que la transformación no sería posible sin revolución material en la cual las viejas estructuras de pensamiento, formas sociales, la misma superficie de la tierra, sufrirán una transformación total.
