Tears of separation from God can be healing and revealing

As Param Pujya Dr. Vishwamitter Ji Maharaj has reminded us so many times that our Sadguru Param Pujya Shree Swamiji Maharaj is blessing us when we study Shree Ramayanji.  He can show us the messages for our spiritual growth.   As we connect with each word in Shree Ramayanji with reverence we are very likely to connect with our Lord in a very personal way.

It may have happened to you while studying anyone of the Swamiji’s granth.  It so happened today that he brought out a flow of tears representing long separation from God while telling us the story of Bharatji giving back the reigns of Ayodhya to Shree Ram.   There was a feeling of healing happening in those words.  The moments that followed provided a connection with Supreme Soul beyond words can describe.  Our journey back home as a soul is Supreme soul  Shree Ram.  So lets renew our journey back with all the enthusiasm and blessings of our Sadguru Maharaj and Param Guru Jai Jai Ram.

Please visit Shreeramsharnam.org for thousands of inspiring messages, bhajans, dhuns, and much much more for your continued spiritual growth.

 

Mahatma Gandhi Ji and Prem Ji Maharaj – What is common among them?

Two great leaders and servants, we celebrate your birthday today.  Both of them served their countrymen and mankind.  Swami Ji Maharaj influenced them both.  He gave Gandhi Ji a Mala and asked him to do Ram Naam practice in a disciplined way daily.  Prem Ji Maharaj was guided and groomed to serve all sadhaks in Shreeramsharnam, people at work, and others by giving homeopathic medicines for their ailments.

Let us celebrate it by following in their footsteps.  Starting today we can be more aware of our culture and heritage that includes Nishkam Seva, Nishkam Prarthana (Selfless service and prayer).

Mahatma Gandhi was instrumental in freedom of country while Prem Ji Maharaj following in the footsteps of Swami Ji Maharaj showed us how to free ourselves from the bondage of attachments and the attractions of the world with Seva and Simran.

We pray to Lord Shree Ram to give us one small quality of each one of these two Masters who really served the Great Master, The Lord of all by serving His children.

Our relationship with Shree Ram and with our Gurujans

Shree Ram is the source of life, mother of universe, source of divine love, source and infinite reservoir of all powers.  We may or may not get the bhavana or the feeling to connect with Shree Ram with love and devotion by thinking in these ways.

Let us change or add to the above – as our Gurujans suggest we can think of ourselves as a newborn divine child of Divine Mother Shree Ram.  Pujya Maharaj Ji says. “Ram hee Ma hai aur Ma hee Ram hai”.  We must not only think this way but feel that way in our minds and hearts and also totally depend on Divine Mother in every way and to purify us.  So this defines our relationship with Shree Ram from now on in the following way as the Lord puts it:

I am Love/the Divine Lover and you are my beloved children. (Parmatma Premi hai aur Hum hain uske Priyatam)

Let us evaluate our relationship with our Gurujans now.  Our Gurujans have taught us that Guru is not a body but a tattva, meaning reality or the truth or the knower of the reality or the truth.  So Guru can lead us from darkness to light, show us the path we must walk on to go towards Shree Ram, our Divine Mother.  As we know child has to walk one step or crawl or even hint that he or she wants to go toward mother and mother comes running and picks the child up.

Our relationship with Guru is one of Guru and Shishya or The Guru and disciple … a student who wants to learn and walks on the path shown by the Guru.

A path of living life filled with love of Ram Naam, with love for all, becoming a better human being, searching for lasting peace, etc.  All of that is not easy but we must walk on that path because that is the path that can take us to Shree Ram in .  To make it easier we can walk, crawl, or run towards becoming a newborn divine child.

Many Sadhaks feel that our Gurujans are also Premi or Divine Lover as Shree Ram and they have given us the love of a mother in addition to giving us Ram Naam, Discourses, and Satsangs.

They are no longer in the body but their love will always be with us.

This is our true relationship with them.  This is the relationship we can bring to the world if we so desire.  We have to make this choice…each one of us.

This poem was inspired by reading Swami Ji Maharaj’s prayers in Bhakti Prakash and listening to them from Pujya Dr. Maharaj Ji in satsang and his discourses recorded on Shreeramsharnam’s website.

Of course by Param Guru Jai Jai Ram who is the real doer.

Dr. Vishwamitter Ji Maharaj’s discourse and Amritvani

Pujya Maharaj Ji sang a dhun roughly translated … I am receiving the bliss of life when I have received or realized King of Kings and Ram Naam.
Jeevan da mainu Anand aa gaya…

In Amritvani Swamiji Ji  Maharaj says in verse 8:
Ram Ram Jap He Mana …..

O Mind! Remember forever the Holy Words ‘Ram-Ram’ as the provider of salvation and

immortality. Also, be certain that the Lord Sri Ram is forever existent in His Name (Ram-Naam).

Dear Sadhaks, how blessed we are to have Gurujans like these, Amritvani, and Maha Mantra.

As Pujya Gurujans say these are to be practiced … Yeh karne kee cheez hai.
