A Sadhak shares messages from Pujya Shree Swami Ji Maharaj and Amritvani, Pujya Shree Dr. Vishwa Mitter Ji Maharaj (click here or the link below) and his Pravachans in which he once said how Pujya Shree Prem Ji Maharaj used to visit him in the college and shared a bottle of milk with love – always giving more that half (this is not mentioned in the link below).
Every morning a sadhak tries to do Amritvani Paath. Today the sadhak was inspired by Ma or Shree Ram to do the jaap on the mala before the paath.
Lord’s Will, It is done.
Sadhak has been imagining that Pujya Shree Maharaj ji, Prem Ji Maharaj, and Swamiji Maharaj are always there in jaap and simran. Ma gave that experience to the sadhak.
Lord’s Will, It is done.
Sadhak has been seeing pictures of Gurujans in pictures and in photo gallery,(click on link to see) http://www.ibiblio.org/ram/lft_mn08.htm and those images came to mind when jaap and simran was being done.
Lord’s Will, It is done.
Shree Swamiji Maharaj and our Gurujans remind us that we (Sadhaks) are to take actions with Kartavya Buddhi or using our intellect and doing our duties. Sometimes we do not feel like taking care of our health, do exercise, do spiritual practice of reciting amritvani, jap, or dhyan, etc.
While we may not feel like it or feel lazy we must take care of our physical, mental, and spiritual health. That is our duty. It seems as if our loving Gurujans, saint-souls have come here on earth again and again us and shown us the way. Our Gurujans have done “Marg Darshan” in every Sadhana Satsang.
Now it is up to us to seek Shree Rams’ blessings and the blessings of Swamiji Maharaj to do our duty while immersed in Ram Naam.
There is a beautiful dhun sung by Pujya Dr. Vishwa Mitter Ji Maharaj in the open Sadhana Satsang in USA in May, 2009 which goes as follows:
Baba meri raksha karna .. Baba meri raksha karna.
Baba meri banh pakarna … Baba meri banh pakarna.
Baba mujhe bhakti dena … Baba mujhe bhakti dena.
Baba mujhe darshan dena … Baba mujhe darshan dena.
(Baba protect me ….. Baba hold my arm …. Baba give me devotion …. Baba give me darshan – vision and blessing)
A person in a western country who had not heard of Shree Ram or Ram Jap was told about how repeating Ram Ram can help him in time of trouble or when he felt low physically or mentally. (He had no initiation from any Guru Maharaj – he was just told to do this by an ordinary sadhak)
According to him one day he was all dressed up to go to work but he was not feeling good inside. He remembered and said Ram only once. Immediately he felt as if some thing inside of him waking up and giving him lots of energy. He felt really good about going to work in just a few seconds.
Imagine what Ram Nam can do for us sadhaks (who have been initiated) if we had stronger faith and practiced according to our Gurujans’ instructions.
Ram Nam ki Mahima – our Gurujans and other Bhaktas have sung glories of Ram Nam recently, over thousands of years, and in all yugas.
Jai Shree Ram.
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)
Pujya Dr. Viswamitter Ji Maharaj says we just keep on saying, Paramatma ki kripa hai, but we really don’t mean it. He adds if we really meant it, we will be constantly remembering Ram through Ram Naam Jap, simran, dhyan, etc.
Ram Kripa Kab Hoti Hai? – Ram Kripa tab hoti hai jab ham Ram main mast ho jaaye. It seems that Shree Swami Ji Maharaj has mentioned about in a dhun, “Teri buti ne masti keeti, Ram! Teri Buti ne masti keeti”. In Amritvani, Ram Kripa is mentioned several times with clarity and authority.
Pujya Maharaj JI tells us not to think of Ram Kripa when we are getting more income or some other material gains but think of Ram Kripa when our mind turns toward God. Some sadhaks report of Ram Kripa when our Gurujans appear in our dreams or in our dhyan giving us guidance and encouragement. Others report of Ram Kripa when we get inspiration to do more sadhana or get an insight on how to do serve others while taking care of our present responsibilities.
In Pravachan Piyush, Shree Swami Ji Maharaj has mentioned about appearing in a sadhaks dream and helping remove some obstacles from that sadhak’s life.
Over the last two days the practice of Satsangati by listening to discourses and feeling the presence of Gurujans is going fairly well. The disappointment is in my not exercising self-control in eating habits … not eating on time, and eating in between meals, and also watching TV a little too much (although it is much less than before).
Pujya Maharaj Ji says in his Pravachan not to lose hope. I not only trust that Satsangati along with Jap is going to help with sanyam or self-control, I am already seeing signs of Guru Kripa and Ram Kripa in that matter. In my understanding the seeds of Satsangati and Jap are sown and fruit will be in the form of sanyam or self-control, simran, and whatever else Shree Ram wishes. Together they can help any sadhak’s practice. I pray that all of us have love for Naam and the Naami.
Jai Jai Ram.
