The Power of Living in Truth, Simplicity and Love ॐ


The Power of Living in Truth, Simplicity and Love ॐ
`
"The Path of God-Realization is a most difficult one," said Babaji. "Few are those who will walk it. It is as difficult as walking on the edge of a razor. The Grace of the Guru is everything. No knowledge is possible without the Guru, and practicing Truth, Simplicity and Love."

He asserted that by concentrating on these Three principles, one could gain control over mind, body and emotions and attain Spiritual insight. Yet, he cautioned that discovering Truth, Simplicity and Love requires discipline.

"Nothing can be achieved without discipline," said Babaji. "You should have the strong discipline of a soldier. Be a soldier of God, and act with courage and discipline."

Babaji Appears After A long Search For Him ॐ

 Young Lord Haidakhandi Babaji in meditation

Babaji Appears After A long Search For Him ॐ
`
An Indian friend from Bombay told me how she first met Babaji in those early days, and how He revealed Himself to her. My friend is a rather westernized, no-nonsense sort of person who had first read Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramhansa Yogananda in 1959. She felt an intense yearning to find Babaji, and so set out for the Himalayas to find him. She didn't find Him then, and so tried again in 1965 -- still without success.

One evening in 1971, she was sitting with her father by their family altar which was covered with pictures of deities and saints. A relative came to the door and insisted on bringing a Young Guru in to meet the family. My friend had given up on Babaji and on gurus in general by then, and didn't want to meet another one. But her father, ever hospitable, agreed to see him.

The relative came in with a strikingly beautiful youth who walked straight over to the altar and sat down. Looking intensely at my friend, and not speaking, He pointed to a picture on the altar that, most oddly, she had not seen there a moment before -- the small 'line drawing' of Babaji from Autobiography of a Yogi. Then He pointed to Himself. Still silent, He pointed to the picture and to Himself twice more.

Moved to tears, my friend fell at His feet. She'd found Babaji at last. This woman told me, as did other Indian devotees, what Babaji was like in the early years at Herakhan. In 1971 and 1972, they said, He would sit for hours in a lotus pose with his eyes closed, apparently in a deep meditative state. Even when not in meditation he hardly spoke, they said, and then only in monosyllables.

His eyes seemed to 'radiate a light', and often his gaze was so bright and penetrating people couldn't look at him. Photographs of Babaji at this time show a slender, beautifully-featured youth of about twenty, with dark, arresting eyes and a mass of tangled hair. He looked in some photos like a Sioux warrior, and in others like a Madonna.

El Sanatan Dharma, la Religión Eterna.


Babaji no está predicando ninguna nueva religión. Ha venido a predicar la religión que aparece en el momento de la Creación y que es el Sanatan Dharma, la Religión Eterna. Él ha venido a predicar sólo el Sanatan Dharma.

Podemos determinar la fecha a partir de la cual comenzó cada religión. Por ejemplo, la religión musulmana comenzó con Mahoma hace 1.400 años y de esto se da cuenta en sus escrituras. El cristianismo comenzó con el nacimiento de Cristo hace 2.000 años. Antes de que Cristo y Mahoma existieran, el mundo y sus gentes vivían. El Sanatan Dharma se ha seguido durante miles y millones de años, y nadie es capaz de decir el día en que comenzó. Podéis intentar comprender esta religión espontánea de esta forma: el Dharma (la ley de la naturaleza) del fuego es arder, el Dharma del agua es mojar, el aire tiene que soplar. ¿Puede alguien decir en qué día comenzó el fuego a arder, el agua a mojar y el aire a soplar? Nadie puede decirlo.

Sanatan Dharma es como un gran océano. De ese océano, cada país ha cavado canales de acuerdo con sus necesidades y propósitos. Pero los canales no pueden dar la satisfacción total como el océano da bendición total. El Señor está mostrando una visión del Sanatan Dharma que es como un gran océano y ésta es la forma más grande de conocimiento.

Hasta ahora, la gente sólo tuvo conocimiento de sus propios canales. Ahora el Señor nos muestra que no sólo somos burbujas de un solo canal, sino burbujas de un gran océano. Mientras tenemos individualidad, somos vistos como burbujas; cuando desaparecemos, somos uno con el océano.

La importancia de repetir el nombre de Dios (Nam Japa)


...Babaji les habló de la importancia de repetir el nombre de Dios (Nam Japa):

“Todo en este mundo es el nombre de Dios, Su nombre está reflejado en todas las formas. Sólo mediante el nombre de Dios puede el alma humana experimentar la consciencia del Uno. No hay diferencia entre el nombre y la forma. Al repetir constantemente el nombre de Dios, el practicante se convierte en el nombre de Dios. Así la forma de Dios y la forma del que practica Nam Japa se vuelven una. El Nombre es Dios. Con el fin del alcanzar lo más Elevado, lo mejor es practicar constantemente la repetición del Nombre de Dios. Es por ello que las almas realizadas repiten el nombre de Dios. Es la única barca con la que uno puede cruzar las limitaciones del mundo. Es el único camino al gozo espiritual y material. Nam japa ayuda a superar todos los obstáculos” dice Bhole Baba.

I shall show you freedom greater than you have ever dreamed about


3 April 1980 - Babaji spoke generally of unity

We are all one with each other and with God.

"We are all equal, despite the country we come from, and national differences should be ignored. We are all a unity. We must shed all jealousy and envy because they are harmful. We are all one with each other and with God.

"In order not to provoke Me, you must be quiet at the time of catastrophe. You must concentrate on Om Namah Shivaya. With this mantra you can win everything, because it is stronger than all the bombs."

Babaji mentioned the freedom spoken of and promised by politicians. Then He said, in effect: "Theirs is no freedom at all. If you work and are worthy. I shall show you freedom greater than you have ever dreamed about."

There will be many mountains to cross, but do not stop until the goal is reached


December  9, 1998

"The Great Revolution is coming as I have predicted. Change is nothing new. It is a law of nature. What is born must die and what dies must be born. The human being is enslaved to his lower nature. I have come to lead human beings to a higher path. Attach yourself to God. Be brave and always walk on. Prepare to walk into the fire. There will be many mountains to cross, but do not stop until the goal is reached. Be strong. I am Here.

Japa Nama. - / (Constant repetition of the name of God))


"The mind can be purified only by Japa. This is the 'only medicine' for the disease of the mind. While your mind and heart are impure, how can God live in your heart? The water-to clean your heart is the Name of God. So teach everyone to repeat the Name of God everywhere.". ~ Babaji

In order to focus people's minds on God, Babaji taught people to chant the Ancient Mantra "OM NAMA SHIVAY," which may be translated as I take refuge in God. A Mantra is a Sanskrit phrase which invokes the Divine by a Name of God. There are thousands of Names of God and thousands of Mantras. Constant repetition of a Mantra (the repetition is called Japa) is used to focus and purify the mind, to push out the useless, worrisome or tantalizing thoughts that constantly flood our minds, 'allowing the stilled mind to hear' what comes from the Divine.

Repetition of Om Namaha Shivaya is a Pathway to Unity with the Supreme God. The Name of God used in this mantra is Lord Shiva who is a Hindu conception of the One Supreme God. This Mantra has been used for millennia and taught by Saints and Gurus in India and the West. Constant repetition of a mantra (the repetition is called Japa) focuses the mind on God, 'opens one's heart and mind' to God.

Om Namaha Shivaya ॐ
