We may surrender to Shree Ram – but is our surrender accepted?

Our loving gurujans tell us that Shree Ram knows our heart just like a mother knows her child.  If we do not mean to surrender completely our surrender is not accepted.  So until then what do we do with our Bhakti?

Well, like anything else we need to simply continue our practice of jap, simran, an dhyan with complete devotion and cry for our Divine Mother Ram to accept our surrender.   As beloved Maharajji say we must cry for Her Love like a new born child and cry more and more.  One day She will accept her as beloved divine child.  Her nature is to love.  Shree Ram says that I only know how to love and all of you are my beloved.

So it is our turn to show the real love by doing our sadhana with the attitude of utmost respect and love for our Divine Mother.

Loving Chaitanaya Bhav, Gyaan, and Ram

Over and over our Gurujans have described in their granths, pravachans, and have sung about chaitanaya bhav, gyan, and loving Ram by doing jap, simran, seva, sanyam, and satsang.

Ram Naam Jab Jage Abhang, Chetan-Bhav Jage Sukh Sang ….

Ram Naam Sudha-Ras Saagar, Ram Naam Gyaan-Gun Aagar ….

Ram Simran Sab Se Ooncha, Ram Shakti Sukh Gyaan Samoocha ….              (Amritvani)

Is that happening in our lives – are we experiencing that love?

Most of us will probably answer  – NO, or not enough.  How do we do that … simply listen to our Gurus and follow their direction.   Swamiji Maharaj and our Gurujans ask us to do, “adhik se adhik jaap karo”, but we do not pay attention to that and keep on trying to fulfill our wish list, desires, or kamanas, instead.

We are instructed to study Gitaji, and Ramayanji, instead we read novels and filmi magazine, watch TV and waste our time.

In Bhakti Prakash, Swamiji Maharaj points to us that, “Ram Prem Swaroop” hai.  That prem bhavana will surely rise in us if we do jap with love, remember Ram’s gun with love, and serve Ram’s human beings, and other beings with love.  So loving Ram means loving Divine Love.  Love is complete in itself.

Let us not lose hope, instead, have full faith in Ram Naam and in our Gurujans’ teachings.   Ram is always there to help, woh to ang-sang hai.  Ram Naam to taar deta hai, Ram ka kaam hi sab ko Ram banana hai – baaki tau choti-moti baaten hain.

Be inspired, be chaitnaya bhav (not deh bhav), love Gyaan, Love Ram, and most of all – let us serve our Gurujans in every way possible.

Power of Ram Naam and blessings of our Gurujans

Through the grace of our Pujya Gurudev we have been blessed with Ram Naam.  While we read in Amritvani that Parmaatma Sri Ram is all powerful .. omnipotent. We are connected to the source and reservoir of all powers through Ram Naam.

Then why do we have a weak mind?  Why are we not able to use our intellect to take care of our responsibilites and do benevolent actions?

Is it because we do not have total faith in God or do we not yet totally believe what our Gurujans have said? … or is it something else?

Regardless of whether we know the answers to these questions or not, we can at least pay close attention to what Maharajji says,”We have Ram in us but it is lying dormant”  – so  we must wake up this power in us by Jap, Simran, and Dhyan. And with the strength we gain from our practice we can follow the path shown to us with renewed determination and resolve.

Maharajji explains (in USA Open Satsang) that in Amritvani it is mentioned:

Ram-Ram Bhaj Kar Sri Ram

Kariye Nitya Hee Uttam Kaam

(and not …. Kariye Nitya Hee Uttam Kaam,  Ram-Ram Bhaj Kar Sri Ram)

So as he is guiding us, let us keep Ram Naam in the forefront and do the benevolent actions and take care of our duties and responsibilities and be ready to recieve maximum benefit of Ram Kripa.

Once again Maharajji says be patient and never lose hope.

Jai Jai Ram

Reading from Amrit Vaani today and SwamiJi Maharaj’s Pravachan Piyush long ago

Mohak Mantra Ati Madhur,

Ram – Ram Jap Dhyan.

Hotaa Teeno Lok Men,

Ram – Naam Gun – Gaan. …48

Today while reading the above (and nearly every time I read) in Amrit Vaani, it reminds me of reading Pravachan Piyush long-time ago in which I vaguely remember:

Swamiji Maharaj saying,”Ram-Naam teeno lok men gunj raha hai, aur mujhe spashat dikhayee de raha hai ki veh kalyaan kar rahaa hai”

(Swamiji Maharaj meri galation ko kshama kareien)

Aap tau Paramaatmaa se taar milaane ka kam karte hain, hamari bhi taar milayiye taaki hamein bhi jo aap ne kaha hai usska anubhav hove.


Sab Par Ram Kripa aur Sadguru Maharaj Kripa bani rahe.

Ek chhote se sadhak ne pukara – Kripa hui

Ek chotta sa sadhak (kam sadhana karne wala parantu Aayu main bada) sochne laga ki jitna jap Gurujano ne kaha hai utna tau mujh se ho nahin raha – ab kya hoga mera?

Thodi der ke baad usko ek baar Shree Swamiji Maharaj ki Pravachan Piyush main padi hui baat yaad aa gayi jo unhone ek aur sadhal ko kahi thi,  “Mein tumhare ghar aaya tha magar dekha  ghar par taala laga hua tha”.

Parmaatmaa ki kripa hui chhote sadhak par aur uske man main vichaar daal diya ki SwamiJi Maharaj se prarthana kare ki ,”Swami JI Maharaj, aap mere man-mandir main aayen aur andar se taala laga dijiyega, ab hum milkar jap karenge – kyon ki mujh se tau jitna karna chahiye tha utna nahin hua”.

Chotte sadhak ki ankhon main ashru aa gaye aur use aisa laga ki ab aisa hi hoga aur usko sadhana main safalata mil jayegi.  Lagta hai chotte sadhak par Ram Kripa aur Guru Kripa hone lag gayi hai.

Parmaatmaa sab par teri kripa bani rahe, Guru tau bin maange kripa karta rehta hai.  (Kuch aise suna hai)

Baar Baar Sant-Mahatma ke paas jayen

Jahan se hamein paise ki kamaai hoti hai, chaahe naukri se ya vyapaar se, wahan hum baar baar jaate hain.  Hamein jahan se Ram-Naam ki kamaai milne ka mauka mila hai, Sant-Mahatma se wahan hum baar baar kyon nahin jaate.

Sant-Mahatma ke paas baar baar jaayiye aur satsang aur sankirtan kariye, aur iss ka pura laabh uthaiye.   Sab Sant-Mahatma kehte hai aur hamare Pujya Gurujano ne bhi kai bar kaha hai ki Ram Naam se bar kar aur koi kamaai nahin hai.

Hamein paise ki kamaai ke saath saath jahan jaana hai uski bhi kamai karni chaahiye.  Pujya Dr. Vishwa Mitter JI Maharaj kehte hai – Khubh paisa kamayo magar, saath saath utna hi Ram Naam bhi japo – adhik se adhik japo.

Sab par Ram Kripa bani rahe.
