It is all yours Lord – Sab Tera Hai

If our belief becomes stronger and stronger that Lord or The Creator is all, all belongs to The Lord, and Lord is the sole doer, our life will become more peaceful, blissful, and filled with love.  Once we are filled with love it is like an ocean who cannot contain the waves, they go out and touch the beach, sand, people and everything on the beach.  Similarly this divine love cannot be contained within us it will go out and touch other lives.  

What does that mean?

It means that our attitude, our bhavana, our feelings towards our self and others have totally been transformed – we will be accepting people unconditionally because we see Ram in all.  We will be not serving people we will be serving Ram.  We will not argue, fight, or say bad things about anybody.  We will be able to forgive others readily and easily.

So dear sadhaks, let us surrender our self and everything we think we think is ours at the holy feet of the Lord Shree Ram and see the Lord working through us, having bhakti done through us, and doing selfless service through us, we being an instrument of the Lord,

Shishya (Disciples) Keep Guru Alive

Guru never dies, shishya keep the Guru alive by living the Guru’s teachings.  This is what Maharajji has said more than once.

Pujyya Shree Maharajji’s body was immersed in Neel Dhara, Haridwar on July 3rd, 2012 at 6:00 pm (IST).

Today is the day after Guru Purnima:

Now it is up to us individually to take at least one lesson

he has taught us and bring that into our life.

 What will be that for you?  

My personal favorite is on how to give up a negative habit.

In his discourse, Maharaji suggests that we can give up the habit for one day and then extend the same for another day and so on.  He also tells us that mind needs to be totally cleansed and surrendered to Lord.

Best wishes to all sadhaks.  

Ram Ram Ji.

You are all, All is Yours, You are the sole Doer – My Ram

If our belief becomes stronger and stronger that Lord or The Creator is all, all belongs to The Lord, and Lord is the sole doer, our life will become more peaceful, blissful, and filled with love.  Once we are filled with love it is like an ocean who cannot contain the waves, they go out and touch the beach, sand, people and everything on the beach.  Similarly this divine love cannot be contained within us it will go out and touch other lives.

What does that mean?

It means that our attitude, our bhavana, our feelings towards our self and others have totally been transformed – we will be accepting people unconditionally because we see Ram in all.  We will be not serving people we will be serving Ram.  We will not argue, fight, or say bad things about anybody.  We will be able to forgive others readily and easily.

So dear sadhaks, let us surrender our self and everything we think we think is ours at the holy feet of the Lord Shree Ram and see the Lord working through us, having bhakti done through us, and doing selfless service through us, we being an instrument of the Lord,

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.

Praying to Lord – never make me a big person

Pujya Maharajji’s mentioned in his pravachan that Shree Swamiji Maharaj has left us with some work  – to become like a child.  He then adds that we should pray to Parmaatma that may I never become a big person.

With our practice as shown by our Gurujans and with the power of Ram Naam we can take an attitude of a witness (chaitanaya bhav),  giving up the notion that … I am the body.   By surrendering all the fruits of the action to Lord (before we begin each action as Bhagvad Gita teaches us) because we are not really the doers – without the inspiration of Lord and the energy provided by Shree Ram (source of all powers), how can we do anything.

(Shree Hanumanji said the same thing when he was praised for burning the Lanka Nagri)

When we practice this over and over again we will be reminded of the fact that we really don’t do anything and that “Lord is the sole doer”.  In this manner, we will become more and more humble.  With this humility in us it may become a little easier for us to be a small person – even a child, at least in relationship to our Divine Mother.

We can extend this practice to every human being because to love Ram is to love everyone.  Once again it is not easy to do so but it is also not impossible as shown by so many people before us and some who are among us.

Like anything worthwhile it takes some practice for a long, long time but with the Ram Kripa it can happen sooner than we think, so always have hope and faith in Shree Ram and Ram Naam, an invaluable diamond given to us by our beloved Gurujans.  “Cash” this diamond and be spiritually rich – that is the only wealth we can take with us.

How to surrender to God

According to Pujya Maharajji:

(The following is only an understanding of this sadhak, who needs more and more of this practice.  Corrections and comments are welcome.)

According to Pujya Maharajji, everyone says to surrender to God, but they do not tell us how to do it.  He shows us the way:   Paramatma (Supreme Soul) Sri Ram … This  body, wealth, intellect, and mind .. they are all yours,  all the actions done with mind, body, speech, and sense organs (due to lust, greed, anger, jealousy, etc.) , teri vastu hai  – yours (English?)… Ram, Ram, Ram, Ram.

Shree Swamiji Maharaj clarifies about God and how to surrender to God in Amritvani:

SARVA SHAKTIMATE PARMAATMANE SRI RAMAAYA NAMAHA (Amritvani can be downloaded from http://www.shreeramsharnam.org/) –

I bow before Sri Ram, who is vested with all powers!

I bow before the source and reservoir of all powers!

I bow and seek shelter with the Supreme Soul, Sri Ram!

I dedicate and surrender myself unto Him!


‘Parmaatmaa’: The Supreme soul.

Connection – Raja Janak in Bhakti Prakash and Pravachan

In Bhakti Prakash and in all his granths Shree Swamiji Maharaj’s probably touches hearts of many sadhaks.

In Janak Gyan:

When Guru Yagavalkaya asks Raja Janak to give him his mind as dakshina he agrees. Then Raja Janak says that Vaasanas are still there in the mind and his mind is unstable, etc.

Guru replies,”This daan/dakshina is not complete – now that mind is mine …. be careful of any paap karam and do your duties”

This also is mentioned by our gurujans in their pravachans that we do not fully surrender our mind to Shree Ram, once the mind is surrendered totally, there is not much else left to surrender.
