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.

Last two days – the practice and disappointment in self

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.

This may be of help to Sadhaks – Lessons and inspirations

As Pujya Vishwa Mitter Ji Maharaj (Pujya Maharaj JI) says that Sab Ram Karta Hai – Lord is the sole doer, keeping that in mind Shree Ram made it clear this morning to this child that Satsangati and Sankirtan are very important for every Sadhak. As mentioned by Pujya Maharaj JI in one of his discourses of Naarad Bhakti that to have Sanyam, Sadaachar, Seva, and Simran in our lives we must have Satsangati – or association of Sant Mahatma, Satpurush, Sadguru, etc.

Sadhaks must have faith that the Satsangati and Sankirtan will definitely help us lead a life of self-discipline and self-control over our negative habits and behaviors, in addition to that we will have the opportunity to serve others with nishkam bhav or desiring no fruit of our actions, and last but not least the Simran …. Ram Naam Jap with love, devotion, and feeling of connectedness to Paramatma Shree Ram.

In Bhakti Prakash reading yesterday, a message from Swami Ji Maharaj was crystal clear – that is to simply surrender to Shree Ram and even forget about Sakaam or Nishkam Karma. That is the same thing mentioned in his Gita Saar and also Pujya Maharaj Ji mentions that in one of his discourse … Lord Krishna telling Arjuna that Chhor sab ye Karmyog, Gyanyog, Bhaktiyog, aur sab yog, meri sharan mein aa ja, Arjun tera aur mera ghar ek hai. (Lord Krishna,”Arjun, leave all the paths of yoga such as Karma Yoga, Gyan Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, simply surrender to me and know that your home/abode and my home/abode is one and the same”) 🙂

For those of us who can’t be with our Sant Mahatmas in person for any reason, distance or lack of physical health, we can simply remember what Pujya Maharaj Ji told us at the time of diksha that our Gurujans are always protecting us and helping us in our sadhana. So we can simply choose to do Sankirtan and Simran while feeling that our Gurujans are with us, I believe this will help us become better human beings and our sadhana will progress with Ram Kripa and with Guru Kripa.

Please let others Sadahaks know of your understanding, experiences, and thoughts about same or similar subjects. It will also help me if you add a comment below.

Jai Jai Ram.
