Babaji's Lila with Shdema


Babaji's Lila with Shdema

Babaji would allow people to stay in His ashram for limited times, according to whatever that person needed to learn from Him. For some people it would be one day, other a few days, and for some, if they were lucky, a few weeks or even months. The intensity of energy, just being around Babaji, was sometimes overwhelming, and He would certainly “crack your ease”.

“Babaji’s ability to read my thoughts often amazed me to no end. At first, it scared the daylights out of me; then I found it amusing and even exhilarating; soon I got used to it. Everyone around me took it as a matter of fact that Babaji knew not only their thoughts, but their every activity and conversation, near or far away. I also experienced this phenomenon.

“It was during my second visit to Babaji that I suddenly felt that I was crazy to be there, so far away from home, away from my husband, my son, my work, my style of life, etc. I was out in the jungle with snakes, and with worms in my stool. I had insects biting me all night long. It was hot.

“I wondered, am I a masochist or what? What did I need all this for? So I decided to ask Babaji specifically what it is He can teach me. I thought to myself that if He could teach me teleportation, then it would be worth my while to endure the suffering.

“I gathered courage, for it had been recommended to me to never ask Him for anything. I had been told that He knows exactly what I need and that He would supply me with the appropriate teachings at the right time. Still, I asked Him, ‘What can you teach me, and can I learn teleportation?’
“He answered, ‘I can teach you how to be silent and how to obey my orders. You talk too much, I don’t like people that talk too much … you can leave tomorrow.’

“So I had to leave the next day. A part of me was happy, and a part was sad. I packed my luggage and was ready to leave. As I sat on the steps, waiting for the horse, after I had said goodbye to everyone, I closed my eyes and started to question myself: ‘Where did I go wrong? What did I do? All I asked was whether you could teach me teleportation.’

“What I heard in my mind was: ‘You have too many desires.’ ‘Aha! So that’s what it was,’ I thought. Okay, I was willing to let go of all my desires. I tuned inward to make sure that I meant it, and I saw a few desires here and there that I did not think I could let go of.

“I started repeating silently in my mind that I was now truly willing to give up all my desires. To make sure that I really meant it, I repeated it with my name. ‘I, Shdema, am willing to give up all of my desires.’ I felt that I was sincere. I opened my eyes and saw Babaji standing right next to me. He told me, ‘You can stay.’ I smiled and took my luggage back to my room.”

Desire is the beginning of separation and suffering.


God and Maya Are One

13 October 1983

Today I asked Babaji in what sense Maya, the Cosmic Illusion, exists...

and He answered,

"That 'what is existing' is the Projection we make on reality; our Dream exists, but it is just our imagination." He added a song: ‘God and Maya are One together. Nothing of what’s existing can be different from its Creator.

Shastriji, Babaji's High Priest, explained to me that things in themselves are not good or bad, because everything that exists comes from the Divine, even that which is apparently negative; it is an illusion to think otherwise, the result of ignorance, born out of our attachment.

Desire is the beginning of separation and suffering. In the Christian religion the concept of separation is symbolized by original sin and whatever meaning or significance we wish to give to the famous apple, it’s the symbol of a personal desire and a lack of surrender to Divine Will.

“La mahakranti (destrucción, limpieza total, revolución) es necesaria y inevitable

“La mahakranti (destrucción, revolución, limpieza total) es necesaria! Por dos motivos, porque los hombres solo piensan en 'yo' y 'mío' – esto no es la verdad, no es el camino, no es el amor; pues todos quieren ser grandes y nadie sabe ser pequeño”, “por esto ella es inevitable”.
Muchas veces, principalmente en los últimos años y meses, Babaji llamo la atención que una gran transformación (mahakranti) sería inevitable. También hablo repetidamente de como seria y que hacer para sobrevivir a ella. 
El día que dejo su cuerpo, habían algunos discípulos y visitas a su alrededor en cuanto él silenciosamente observaba un mapamundi y después, muy serio, comenzó a ojear un libro con ilustraciones sobre Hiroshima que alguien le había traído. Súbitamente, en el silencio que se había instalado a su alrededor, levantó la cabeza y, en cuanto miraba con un aire distante, dijo: “La mahakranti (destrucción, revolución, limpieza total) es necesaria! Por dos motivos”, en ese momento él se puso de pie, de modo que casi parecía amenazador, “porque los hombres solo piensan en 'yo' y 'mío' – esto no es la verdad, no es el camino, no es el amor; pues todos quieren ser grandes y nadie sabe ser pequeño”. Suspirando profundamente se dejó caer en su silla y añadiendo con voz suave, casi inaudible: “por esto ella es inevitable”.
Él vino como una inspiración de esta revolución, en favor de una gran conversión del espíritu, del pensamiento y del sentimiento. Al mismo tiempo, enfatizaba que la transformación no sería posible sin revolución material en la cual las viejas estructuras de pensamiento, formas sociales, la misma superficie de la tierra, sufrirán una transformación total.

Attach yourself to God


Attach yourself to God

"Each one of you must vow today to sacrifice everything to obtain oneness with yourself.

Be rid of attachment in your heart and be ready for the sake of righteousness to jump into the flames and water of life.

Why do you attach your minds to the transitory things in this world?
Why do you not spend time in meditation and in repeating the Lord's name?

Attach yourself to God. Be brave and always walk on."

 - December 26, 1982

The water to clean your heart is the Name of God


The water to clean your heart is the Name of God

"Those who see the Great God in the moon, stars, earth, air, fire and water, and always meditate on Him only, get success in life and are true devotees."

"Of greatest importance is that the Repetition of God's Name (Japa) increase daily. In this way, your heart and mind will be purified and only then will you find God in yourself.

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."

La repetición del Nombre de Dios


Con el fin del alcanzar lo más Elevado, lo mejor es practicar constantemente la repetición del Nombre de Dios

“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.

BABAJI SPEAKS ABOUT JESUS CHRIST


BABAJI SPEAKS ABOUT JESUS CHRIST

One of the devotee of Babaji asked what He thinks about Jesus Christ?

Babaji said that in his youth Jesus lived in India and Tibet, and got a lot of yoga initiation. Jesus was in Benares, where he became a disciple of Babaji. There he received yogic teachings and made his first mundan, shaved off his hair. Babaji said that the crucifixion of Jesus was for the fourth and final initiation, and, being on the cross, He became one with God- he entered Nirvikalpa Samadhi which he remained in for three days ( on the 3rd day he returned to consciousness of the material world). Babaji said that Jesus is always present among us in the astral body, helping us.
