Babaji is the light of Consciousness within us

On a few occasions I have tried to perform a puja to Him in the kirtan hall, holding a lighted lamp in front of Him. He took the flame from my hands and started to wave it in front of my face, teaching me that He only resides inside myself.

Once again I was doing pranam to Him today when Baba asked me: ‘To whom are you doing pranam?’ I am your own Self.’ On another occasion I was walking in the jungle with Him and I stumbled on a stone because I was intent on looking at His feet. He turned towards me and said: ‘Look inside; outside there are many difficulties.’

JAPA NAMA (repetition of God's name)

JAPA NAMA (repetition of God's name)

Shastriji cited Babaji as saying ; 

"The only way to happily control the mind is to worship the Lord and remember His Name is unfathomable. Keeping it always in mind, the traveler on the path overcomes every obstacles.

"When the Name of the Lord, as His supreme power, enters the heart, happiness begins to pervade it. By remembering His Name, the Lord Himself comes to reside within the heart, and the devotee immediately reaps the fruit of all his endeavors. 

"The little self of man then begins to merge with the Divine self, and the Lord, most merciful, gives fearlessness to it. The constant remembrance of the Lord transforms the individual self into the Self Supreme..the self, by constantly remembering God, become like Him.

In one of His talks in november, 1982, Shri Babaji said: 

"of greatest importance is that is repetition of God's Name increases daily. On this way your heart and mind will be purified; only then will you find God in yourself.

"The mind can be purified only by jap. This is only medicine for the disease of the mind. While your mind and heart are impure, how can God live in your heart? The water to clean your heart is the Name of God. So teach everyone to repeat the Name of God - everywhere."
