Mere Ram Meri Ma

Kripa Karo Mere Ram Kripa Karo

Mere Ram Tujhe Main Kaise Janoo, Kaise Pehchanoo

Na Tu Dikhta Hai, Na Tu Bolta Hai

Par Tere Naam Ka Gun-Gaaan To Teeno Lok Main Hota Hai

Suna Hai Aise Maine, Par Sunane Se Balak Santusht Nahin Hota Hai

Santo Ne Tere Naam Ki Mahima Gayee Hai

Sadguru Ne Tera Naam-Daan Diya Yeh Unki Badai Hai

Issi ko Sambhavta Prem Kahte Hain

Balak To Ma Ki Gaud Main Prem Paate Hain

Ma Apni Gaud Main Bitha Kar Krip-Rupi Dudh  Pila

Iss Dudh-Muhe Balak Ko

Apni Prem Bhari Aankhon Se Nihar Mujhe

Tujhe Bhi Aise Hi Niharoon Yeh Sikha Mujhe

Mere Ram Kripa Karo Aisi Kripa Karo

Benefits of attending Satsang

Satsang is being around Sadguru or a realized saint-soul.  When we are in this kind of company our negative karma for that time period is made inactive and our positive karma is activated.  In this way we are able to do our sadhana or spiritual practice with our heart and mind in it.

There are three ways we can receive Guru’s Grace:

  1. By the sound of his/her words
  2. By his/her sight
  3. By his/her touch

Guru and Parmatma (Param Guru), both are always giving us something highly beneficial for our growth, to become a better human being, energy to take care of our responsibilities, strength to bear the suffering and pain, and the practice for moksha, and more.

A saadhak who has a Satguru in life is very fortunate

According to Sant Mahatmas:

To be born as a human being is a blessing which is very difficult to obtain.  Much more difficult is to have God’s blessing and to start a journey as a saadhak (devotee).  And it is extremely, extremely, extremely difficult to have a Satguru in life.

So my beloved brothers and sisters, we the saadhaks are most fortunate to have a loving Sadguru in our lives.  We are not able to live our daily lives as shown by Maharajji in Sadhana Satsang and as in Pravachan Piyush by Swamiji Maharaj.  It helps to cry in front of Ma (Divine Mother – Lord Ma) and talk to God about our weaknesses and ask for mercy and grace (kripa).

Each one of us need to wake up to the fact that, “Main shaktimayi atma hoon” (I am a powerful soul), powerful to walk on the path as shown in Sadhna Satsang and discourses given delivered by our Gurujans.  No matter how many times we get off the path we simply need to get back on it and know that our Gurujans and Shree Ram are always with us,  helping, and protecting us.

Spiritual Path according to Saint-Souls

There are several spiritual paths for people of various mind-sets, cultures, and spiritual traditions.  Saint-souls or Sant Mahatmas tell us that any and all true spiritual paths lead to an individual soul uniting with Supreme soul or experiencing the truth about Supreme soul, God, or One Source who is vested with all powers.  Some of these wise teachers may say that we realize the truth about ourselves, get enlightenment, or have Darshan of God in His true form.

Most spiritual traditions agree that one of the goal of spiritual practice is for us to become a better person or a better human being.  A better human being in thoughts, speech, and deeds.

Each human being has strengths and weaknesses.  Each human being has past karma, genes, and DNA that binds us to think and act in a certain way, especially if we are not shown the true path.

A true path can be shown only by Sadguru who has learned to walk on the true path with the grace of Guru and God.

According to Saint-souls from almost all traditions of present and past era, it is God’s grace that inspires us to think about God, reach out to God, to pray and have a yearning to walk on a true spiritual path.  When the student is ready the teacher appears as the saying goes … it is again with God’s grace we come in contact with the right guru for us.

Now that we have come in contact with our guru we need to make a commitment to practice according to the instructions given by guru or walk on the  path of practice, as shown to us.  Sure, most of us being humans, are not  going to  keep our total commitments due to one reason or another.  If we just keep aware of what we are thinking, saying, and doing we know whether we are walking on the path or we are off the path.

By attending satsang or keeping in contact with our guru in person or by remembering the instructions, or how our guru talks, walks, and interacts with others can be highly beneficial to us and it can be a reminder about how to keep our behaviors as close as possible as per guru’s guidance.

What more can we ask for … our Gurujans have shown us again and again with patience, love, and as role models the path we need to walk on for our own good and the good of our families, and for the good of  all human beings.

To be a better human being, to do better, is our responsibility … to follow the examples of others who have walked on this path is wisdom.

To err is human… to forgive is divine.  Divine are the saint-souls who forgive us again and again and show their love to us and all mankind.  Let us also act in a divine way … let us forgive ourselves for our mistakes (God and guru has) and let us all renew our commitment to walk on the path shown to us by our loving Gurujans.  Let us do our jap, recite Amritvani daily, study Swamiji Maharaj’s Ramayan (Valmiki version), and follow any other personal instructions given by our guru.

Saint-souls remind us is to do our practice with Nishkam-Bhav… and they assure us that good fruit of this practice is beyond our imagination :

Taarak Mantra Ram hai – jiska sufal apaar,

Is mantra ke jap se – nishchay bane nistaar.

(From Amritvani – booklet available at any Shreeramsharnam – please visit shreeramsharnam.org for centers and treasure of spiritual wisdom)

Jai Jai Ram

Mere Ram, tera pyara naam. Your loving name my Ram.

Har kaam se pehle aur har kaam ke baad,

mein japoo tera pyara naam, mere Ram.

(Before everything, and after everything may I recite your loving name .. my Ram)

Aise hi ho Parmaatma.  Jab aise hone lag jayega tau aisa lagata hai ki pehle aur baad ke beech bhi tera hi pyara naam hi chalata rahega mere man mandir mein.

(May it be so O’Lord.  When this starts happening, it seems to me that in between before and after also your loving name keeps on ruminating in my mind)

Kripa kar mere Ram aisa hi ho.

(I ask for your Grace,  may this be so, my Ram)
Jai Shree Ram.

Grace of God and Guru

People from various faiths have experienced God’s Grace and how it has changed their lives, their relationship with God, and in becoming a better human being.

A seeker was not able to do the spiritual practice with concentration, love, and devotion to God and that caused lots of frustration to the seeker.

One day in a prayer, having a straight-talk with God, the seeker expressed the frustration of not doing the daily practice and living with old negative and bad habits, said to God,

“I am your child, think of me as your little baby – when baby is hungry, baby gets the milk from the mother; when the baby is not able to walk, father holds baby’s hand and helps the baby walk – God, I am hungry for your love, you already know this – I don’t need to ask for your love. I have failed as an adult in trying to be a better human being, so I surrender my knowledge, my intellect, and mind to you. You are merciful, with your grace my life can be transformed”

After a few minutes of crying, talking, the seeker heard, “From now on imagine that your Guru is doing the practice holding your hand, your Guru is doing the devotion, and your Guru is with you every moment”

With that the seeker’s began to experience Grace of God and Guru in a profound way.

Many Gurus, Saints, and Spiritual Masters have shared these kinds of words of wisdom about doing prayer, having a straight-talk with God, surrendering to Lord, etc. They say that any seeker can experience peace, contentment, and love of God.

Guru shows us the path. A humble Guru says that God is Supreme Guru.

Instead of trying to trying to improve our lives, trying to do devotion with concentration, trying to follow Guru – why not hold Guru’s hand and let our life be transformed and be led to God in a much easier way. If a person does not have Sadguru in his or her life then ask God, The Supreme Guru and pray for a Sadguru or a preceptor who can guide us all the way to God.

Ek sadhak ke vichar – A seeker’s thoughts

Ek sadhak ko vichar aaya ki mein tau ek bhooli bhataki atma thi.  Parmaatmaa ne kripa ki,  Sant-Mahatma ko mila diya. (In a seeker’s  mind a thought came that due to God’s grace a great Saint/Master has come in my life)

Mahatma ne bataya ki, “apne aap ko deh mat maano, tum chaitanaya swarup atma ho aur Parmaatmaa sat-chit-anand swarup hai” (This Saint/Master said,”Do not think that you are  mind-body-intellect, you are a soul whose essence is consciousness, pure, power; and God is supreme-soul whose essence is Existence-Consciousness-Bliss Absolute”)

Iss-se sadhak ke man mein ek aur vichar aaya jis-se usko laga shaayad RAM ka arth yeh ho:

(With this another thought came to this seeker’s mind that spelled out RAM)

R – Ram (Paramaatmaa Shree Ram    Supreme-Soul Shree Ram)

A- Atma (Soul)

M – Mahatma (Great Soul)

Hamare Gurujan kehte hein ki bhavana mein hi Bhagwan hai.   (Our Reverred Gurus say that God is in the attitude,feelings, and emotions of a seeker)
