We were lodged in a nice Hotel in Ludhiana for a few days owing to a family function. In one of those days I misplaced the key to my room. We called up the reception for help and they sent a guest attendant with the Master Key. My nephew inquired and the attendant replied that A Master Key can open any room in the hotel.
Well that was enough for an insight.
People have only heard about master keys with regard to rooms or locks,there is one to life also.
DADASHREEJI NAMO NAMAH.
THIS IS THE MASTER KEY TO LIFE.
No matter where you are,what ever time it is chant it and experience yourself connect to your Divine. This is the solution to all problems. Apply it to which ever situation you feel like and see how everything is taken care of. Chant it, be at it and you will not suffer again. I may not be able to use the right words,but everything just comes together and life becomes as smooth as silk.
Don’t go by what I say, try it for yourself. Chant it, feel every word that you chant and observe the change in your self. Dada is here to boost divinity in everyone and establish and strengthen the bond of everyone with their own Divine. If you don’t do it already, please try atleast once. You will start loving your life.
It was 28th December and we were at our ever so beautiful ShantiKshetra PremGiri Aashram in Karjat. We were 30 odd youth who decided to go trekking up the hill. One of us knew the way and none of us knew how long it would take to complete the trek. So according to our limited understandings, we packed our backpacks with all that we thought we would require and left for the trek in the morning to avoid noon heat.
We hadn’t even reached the spot when we realised that most of us were out of drinking water and since it was a dry season,there were no waterfalls too. We realised the value of water when one of us spotted a very thin flimsy stream of fresh water dripping down nearby, which by the look of it, suggested it would take forever to fill our bottles, and all of us queued up to refill.
The trekking was steep and tiresome. It took us more than eight hours to complete the whole thing. We had carried extra clothing, trekking sticks, books and what not but none of us carried enough of what was most essential…. WATER. And then my Dada gave me an insight like He always does.
In life too, we undergo so many trainings, courses, schooling, higher education and so much more but is all that essential? We might say that they are basic requirements but what is the most important component?
It’s Love. I wouldn’t call it a life if you didn’t live with Love in your Heart and quite often than not, we forget it. It’s there, it’s always there but we forget to acknowledge it. Experiment it. Apply Love to which ever situation you are in,and watch the magic, witness the most beautiful things unfold in front of you. Let your life be guided by Love. like they say- you only need power to dominate. Rest, Love can handle.
Thank you Dada for everything and much more.
जब तुम चुप थे
अंतर्मुख थे …
न कोई शब्द
न कोई बात
बस श्रण भर दर्शन
कैसे तुम रह पाए दादा ?
क्यों इतना हमें तरसाए दादा ?
जब हम चुप थे
ह्रदय से शब्द
ह्रदय से बातें
हर श्रण प्रेम के सुमन
तुम पर बरसा रहे थे दादा !
जम कर कृपा बरसा रहे थे दादा !
जब तुम चुप थे
न कोई प्रश्न
न कोई जवाब
क्योँ इतना याद आए दादा ?
क्योँ इतना हमें रुलाये दादा?
जब हम चुप थे
तुम्हारे बदलाव और उन्नति में
डूबे थे हम
दृढ़ता और जूनून
हर श्रण जगा रहे थे दादा !
सत्य से पहचान करा रहे थे दादा !
कब से चुप थे
अपने बच्चों को और
बहकाएं न दादा
सब्र का बाँध
डूबायें न दादा
अपने मीठे बोल सुनने के लिए
और हमें तरसायें न दादा
कब से चुप थे
इंतज़ार हमें भी था
प्रेम से कोई बुलाये दादा ..
प्रेम से कोई जगाये दादा ..
प्रेम से कोई बोले दादा,
“बहुत हो गया , अब वापस आ जाओ दादा |”
Hello friends… hope all are growing and flowing with the Grace of the Divine.
Just wanted to share a personal insight with all of you.
A few months ago I was at a hill station and had gone for a walk in the morning.
I reached the edge of a hill and looked down at the beautiful valley and then at the vast sky above me and just marvelled at the magnificence of the Divine.. the vastness of the space that lay above and beyond me.
I stood still and soaked it all being in the moment and experiencing Love for the creator, for Dada.
As I turned to leave, my eyes fell upon a tiny purple flower growing amidst the wild grass. The flower was really small about this size 👉🏼🌸.
I gazed at the flower just looked at it in awe and a realisation dawned…it was as if the flower said to me- I am enough.
I realised in that moment that the flower’s presence was enough. In this vast universe that tiny flower was absolutely perfect the way it was. It grew there alone with no one to see it or appreciate it… yet it was complete and perfect radiating its grace by just being itself.
The flower was not competing for the spotlight or acknowledgement.
It existed there in the wilderness serving it’s purpose by just being.
In that moment I realised that I am enough..
The fact that I’m alive means I’m serving a purpose in God’s creation. Yet each one of us tries tirelessly to impress others and trying to make ourselves acceptable to others and ourselves.. never succeeding… always doubting and judging ourselves.
All we need is to recognise the hand of the Divine in our being itself and accept ourselves as we are… dropping all judgements so that we can radiate our inner beauty and grace .. effortlessly. ..
The flower also showed me that it was receiving everything that it needed …. rain, sun, air… all that it needed for its existence. It did not have to worry about its survival.
That tiny flower was being looked after… by the creator.
Dear friends…Dada is here to help us experience our true nature, love so that we all may live like that flower… innocent,pure, graceful, free and fearless… simply LOVE.
Let us nourish our connection with our Divine so that we may experience the bliss and joy of simply being.
Thank you my Most Beloved Divine Friend Dadashreeji for everything ❤🙏🏼
Mohini for Dada.
Had gone to sign a property transfer deed and the officer asked me for my thumb print. I replied that I could sign but he insisted on the thumb print and said that it was mandatory.
I wondered why he would ask me for a thumb print when I am literate.
Well I don’t know about the technical requirements but he surely gave me an insight. The impression of every individual’s thumb is unique and guess what, so are we.
None of us came down on Earth to breathe out carbon dioxide for trees. There is something special about us just like the print on our thumbs. None of us are misfits. Our birth itself was by the will of the Divine and He is the best casting director. All of us play a lead role in our lives. We just need to find out what we are good at.
Pray to which ever form of Divine you connect with naturally and ask about your uniqueness. Ask Him to infuse your life with passion and the required energy to complete your purpose. You will be in bliss.
Thank you Dada,
Everyone talks about the glass being half full or half empty. The way you see the glass is how they think you look at life. Everyone has got their own notions about the half empty part and relate them with possibilities and opportunities but all of them miss out on the most important ingredient. In fact, that ingredient is the base of all that you can see with your naked eyes.
Think for a moment before you jump to the next para. What is it? That I cannot see. That has been with me since my origin and will stay with me until I merge… The ever present, beyond space and time. What is it?
The air.. how much ever of the glass is not full or is empty, contains the air which represents the most important aspect in our lives too-
GRACE-THE PRESENCE OF DIVINE IN OUR LIFE. It is always there, equal for every individual. It depends on us how much we are open to receive Grace.
The glass is your life, the water is you(self) and the air in it is the amount of grace in your life. Water ( I ) is heavy, probably the only weight the glass will carry. Air( Grace) , on the other hand, is light, effortless. The more the water(self) the heavier the glass(life) would be. Shake the glass(life) one time and the water(self) inside will take atleast a minute before it settles down. Shake an empty glass(full of grace) and the air(grace) inside would stay as it was. We have to lose weight(self) so that we can enjoy the airiness (grace), so that we can fly effortlessly. The glass is always full, it depends how much space you allow to be occupied by the ingredients that fill up your life.
Pray to which ever form of Divine you connect with to keep your glass(life) empty so that maximum grace(air) can fit in. So that who so ever consumes(comes in contact) you can taste that effortless nectar of Divine Love.
Thank you Dada for airing us all the time even when we are bent on pouring in water. Love you.
The day when Lord Ramchandra came back home to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile. What astounds me is not that He made it back home safely but that His people, including the then King Bharat set up a grand show to announce the arrival of The True King.
For fourteen years, His people did not hear from Him but they were waiting for His return. All of Ayodhya cried when He left and all took part in celebration when He came back. Such was the devotion towards Lord Ram Chandra that when He left with His wife Sita and brother Lakshman, Bharat placed Lord Ram’s divine sandals at the King’s throne and renounced all luxuries.
Why did all of them wait? Bharat could have rightly claimed the throne and 14 years is a long time to erase memory of Lord Ramchandra but they preferred to wait. A simple man who did not claim anything. All the world’s luxuries were at His feet and He did not think for a second about the consequences before He agreed to follow His father’s orders. He did not command respect. A man who is loved and prayed to since centuries only performed His dharma and loved unconditionally. It was His Divine Unconditional Love that kept His devotees loyal to Him for years in His physical absence. He proved that Love is the most powerful weapon. He ruled their hearts and not His kingdom.
Some centuries later, on the same day, The sixth Guru of Sikhs Guru Hargobind Ji was was released by Emperor Jahangir from his confinement but Guru sahib refused to leave without the rest of 52 princes who were confined with him. Jahangir had placed a bet which Guru Sahib won and left the confinement with all of them in one go. This day is celebrated as Bandi Chhor Divas ( Day of Liberation).
The Love of Guru Sahib for his devotees was unconditional and he could have done any thing for his devotees. This was a great example that proves Guru se Bada Bhakt hota Hai (the devotee is bigger than the Lord)
Let us celebrate Love this Diwali. Let us pray to Dada to jumpstart our heart with His Divine Love and light up diyas of kindness and compassion.
