Learning from Bhakti Prakash and our Guru

Shree Swamiji Maharaj in Prarthan Pushpanjali shares with  us how to pray:

Buddhi Chit dau fefre – merre rahen arog,

Tere prem supawan ka – kar ke shubh upbhog.  (Bhakti Prakash Page 17  – 7)

[My intellect,  consciousness, and two lungs may remain disease-free,

By receiving  Your Divine Love (…Oh merciful, Supreme Being).]

(Above is only a sadhak’s understanding and translation in English and does not convey the full meaning of what Swamiji Maharaj writes in Hindi)

With Sadguru Maharaj’s grace we can receive this love by doing simran (reciting Ram Nam while keeping it’s meaning in mind).

Most sadhaks would agree that putting forth a little effort in keeping the lungs healthy by brisk walking, pranayam, or some other form of exercise that nourishes the body and mind may help us in our practice .. specially in dhyan.

Swamiji Maharaj has even dedicated a few pages to Kaya Shodhak Pranayam in Bhakti Prakash.  Those who have attended Sadhana Satsangs with Pujya Shree Dr. Vishwa Mitterji Maharaj may have seen him taking brisk walks in Haridwar and elsewhere.

Ram Ram Ji.

      • here the sutr/ shlok in bhakti prakash does not mean the lungs. nor does it mean air at all. Here Swami ji means Budhi and chitt are like two lungs……..and may they stay free of rog……. the rogs of buddhi and chiit are the chief veils………may they stay free of these by the breeze of your divine love, O Lord Shri Ram.
