Aradhana – A Synonym For Awakening The God Within…

Awaken to Divine Love…is Aradhana Mahaotsav…
All negativity…cleanse and repulse…reach out, rise above…extolling the triumph of  divine love…the transition from the superfluous to the mellifluous…

Personally, the Aradhana Month is a time to attune and commune, contemplate, cogitate, meditate, envisage, ponder and wonder – How can we awaken the God within us…so as to reach out to the God/s around us?
Thus, this specific time set aside for Aradhana alludes to an eternal way of life…for it is all about stirring an awakening…awaking to the inner illumination…awakening the God within. This elevated period is all about opening up to and enveloping all life…all fellow beings with His Divine Love. The heart contains sublime love enough to embrace the cosmos…we only need to be aware of it…wake up to it…and allow it to swirl and flow, gush and grow…nourish and flourish…refurbish the outlook the spirit once forsook while associating with and falling prey to the outward glitter of material living.

The forthcoming span from the last week of March to Thursday, 27th April 2017 lovingly bears an exclusive title – Aradhana Month.

Aradhana is a wilful expression of devotion…a deliberate dedication…ardent adoration that caresses the sweetly cherished softer-than-satin Lotus Feet…by way of multihued blossoms having churned the rusted mould…and overcome certain rigid outdated views, thereby enhancing an open perspective, sensitivity, sensibility…which consciously adapts to the harmony of oneness with all of creation as desired by the Supreme Beloved through His oft repeated dictums. Surely the goal of existence should be to live so as to solely please Dear Swami…and thereby avoid being a mere statistic upon the Cosmic Chart. Wouldn’t putting into action the notion of doing our utmost…so as to establish a harmonious co-existence…please our ever blissful Lord…? Wouldn’t that be the transcendental awakening to Divine Love…awakening the God within us…so as to reach out to the God/s in innumerable forms, shapes and sizes around us?

During March – April 2011, Beloved Bhagawan resolutely determined to enact sequential incidences that had a colossal impact on all. On 28th March, our most Precious One chose to admit Himself into the SSSIHMS. He then firmly resolved to withdraw His Divine Form from the physical sphere on 24th April. None in this created world can fathom or decipher His Decisions or Actions. The quest for answers has a simple conclusion – Accept His Will for He writes the Script, He is the Divine Director and the Drama of Creation, suffice to say, is His Leela, His Sport and Exclusive Play.

The yearning to see His beauteous Appearance,
To be in His immediate enchantingly soothing Presence,
Is a constant tug at the heartstrings…
Yet,
When the mind is cajoled to seek, experience…
…and behold the Beloved One…
…in every bit and being around us,
A wonderful journey unfolds…
…to a great extent the soul is suitably consoled…
…growing in awareness that in each heart that beats…
… it is Beloved Bhagawan Who is enthroned.

Aradhana is a devoted flow of worship and adoration. How can we express our adulation to Him Who is the Divine Indweller of one and all?
Isn’t He happy when all beings are happy?
Didn’t Bhagawan assert – ‘Happy, happy, happy…be happy…happy, happy, happy, make others happy…all will be happy, God will be happy’?
These profound lines were part of the theme song that echoed during the 90th Birthday Celebrations of our Loving Lord.

When selfless actions reach out to those in need, be it man, bird or animal…in the air, on land, in flowing waters or in the deep sea, it reverberates as vibrant energy…pulsating as a song of devotion touching that Vishal Hrudaya…a most exalted aradhana…and…the Lord smiles. It is akin to bringing soft sun rays of spring, warmhearted indulgence for anyone frozen from the chilling winds of winter, cold and alone.

Deeply earnest individual and collective efforts,
To adore and pay homage to our Beloved Lord…
…are like droplets in a stream of Sadhana…
…evolving into waves of fervent worship…
…gushing towards the Endless Ocean,
Streaks of lightning that shimmer…
…only to merge in the Eternal Ether,
Shooting stars and comets that blaze a trail…
…in the magnificent panorama of the Cosmos…
…culminating as a Prem Vandana…
…that adoringly embrace and greet…
…those most sacrosanctly treasured Lotus Feet.

To understand this interlude of special Aradhana better, we need to know about the period of Lent which culminates on Easter Sunday, fêted globally for being the day Jesus Christ resurrected Himself. Traditionally, the forty days in Lent are marked by Prayer (justice towards God), Fasting (justice towards self), acts of Penance and Almsgiving (justice towards neighbour/others). However, many devoted ones practice the all-encompassing compassion of Christ, forgiveness, being kind, giving up something they enjoy, introspecting, doing things that will bring them closer to God, as well as donating time or money to charities.
Quite significantly Dearest Bhagawan’s crucial enactment in 2011 took place during this period of Lent.

It certainly is a time of Sai Lent, of silently practising His Maxims, of steadfastly following His Exemplary Examples, of allowing our moments, our breaths…to convey His Kindness, His Benevolence, His Magnanimity…His Patience…the gentle sentiment of sensitivity, compatibility, amity and unity…the fond expressions of tender empathy, sympathy and ‘fellow feeling’ for all living beings…for as Hrudayavasa…He is the core of all sentient beings…since each heart is the temple where He eternally does dwell.

Our act may commence as a drop…
…yet every drop enhances the Ocean.
It may be a tiny spark but it can warm a lonely heart.
It may appear as a solitary grain,
However,
For a soul starved of care and love…
…it may represent a feast grand enough.

If you don’t attempt to fly, how will you soar?
The Lord recognises the intent…
…more than the fancy wrappings or the extent of the contents.

So, this duration is a time of paying respect and reverence to Sathya, to Dharma, to Prema, to Shanti. It is a time to honour the Bhagawan in all beings through the practice of Ahimsa, of encircling each living being with ‘maitri bhav’, exuding harmony for every atom of creation.

HE
H – Heaven…E – Earth…
HE…represents Heaven and Earth…
Heaven came to Earth…
Heaven walked on Earth…
Heaven became earth…
…and Earth a haven…
He spoke and taught us so much…
…we heard…but did we listen and learn?
He gave us so much,
We received…
…but what did we…
…and do we have to offer…
…to the Sai in all that exists around us?
He shielded us, He protected us and still does so…
He took on so much on His Mortal Frame for our sake,
What can we forsake,
…how can we mould our thoughts…
…words and deeds in a befitting manner…?
What activities can we engage in…
…to serve Bhagawan in every bit of creation…?
How can we shield and protect earth…
…while responding to His Call to Love all and Serve all…
…all creatures both great and small?

With all that Beloved Bhagawan has placed inside of us…how can we make a difference to all life around us? The ‘all life’ refers to the environment too…everyone qualifies, strong or meek; naive or wise, ailing or healthy; impoverished or wealthy…in the mineral, plant, animal or human world.
It certainly is a time to applaud and offer deep, devout gratitude to Beloved Bhagawan, His Almighty Grace…His Timeless Communiques…His Teachings Of Love And Peace For Every Atom The Cosmos Through, His Unconditional Love and Just Generosity…His Impartial Magnanimity, then to live in resonance with His Essence…to reach out beyond any confines…beyond any binding boundaries to be boundless…beyond self-centredness to selflessness…promoting human values and humaneness…a blessed Oneness through the true practice of Samastha Lokaah Sukhino Bhavantu…Samastha Jeeva Sukhino Bhavantu…for that is when we raise ourselves to please the Beloved One in all of creation…in me and you.
Let Aradhana Mahaotsav…awaken us to Divine Love.

May our Aradhana truly be a divine synonym…a sanctified hymn…a holy reflection of Him Whom we are attempting to adore…ushering in an awakening of the God within…

The Miracle Of Self Transformation…

‘Bhagawan, Sai, Baba, Swami, Sri Sathya Sai Baba, Sai Maa, Mother Sai…’, every second, every minute, every hour of each day the Sacrosanct Name along with its incomparable essence resounds in myriad devoted hearts churning and revitalising thoughts, words and actions. However, it’s that profound moment of the year again when the soul desires to offer even deeper, full throttle homage to Beloved Swami, to His Truth, His Words, His Magnanimity, His Chosen Sojourn…this Celestial Odyssey, to the Impact of what He Willed to Enact and most distinctly to His lattermost Divine Decision during March – April 2011 that stunned one and all.

Acknowledging the inexplicable significance of this segment of time as regards the Divine Advent, so too, with a view to honour and serve the Sai in each being, devotees are lovingly observing the upcoming days spanning the last week of March – 27th April 2017, as a month of: ‘Giving and Forgiving’.

The Lord in His gentle, most tender compassion chose to descend to elevate us all…and more so…to alleviate the suffering of all earth beings. How can we offer gratitude to the One Whose mercy is so superlative and perfect? How can there be a true Sailent Offering…a Seva-Sadhana Vandana…a Prem Aradhana for the Beloved Master – Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba? Perhaps by ceaselessly ruminating over His Fascinating Advent, His Exalted Life, His Timeless Messages, His Dictums, His Distinct Responses, His ‘Being There For You Through Time…All The Time’…perhaps by emulating an iota of the infinite examples of Oneness He continually…ever so patiently set. Perhaps also through persistently pursuing and working on the miracle of self transformation.

The Teaching Of Love And Peace To All Creation…

Each day the Beloved One decided to spend in the SSSIHMS needs to be deeply respected and unfalteringly valued for none can fathom the larger picture. The Master Plan is known only to the Master Planner.

“What He selflessly determined to impose upon His Deified Sacred Silhouette…for sequentially elevating the cause of mankind and alleviating the distressed appeal of earth…is naturally not within the grasp of any human measure of understanding, interpretation or appreciation.
Certainly, any and every such discussion is mere presumptuous presumption…”

In recognition of Bhagawan as the Source, the origin of the five elements, the basis of all life forms, of human values…let us know Him and feel for Him in all that lives around us. Each episode of the Sathya Sai Avatar exemplified the vitality of compassion, the illustrious virtue of impeccable giving and gracious forgiving, of steering humans towards humanity.

Consequently, it is time to uniquely watch our WATCH – Words, Actions, Thought, Character and Heart especially during this holy period of Sai Lent, lent and granted to us for us – Universal Seva, by the Beloved One through this most mystifying enactment.


The underlying factor of any Divine Incarnation is peace for all…and particularly so for this greatest Advent of all advents – the Sathya Sai Advent, in which He declared Himself as – Sarva Devata Atita Swarupa. He came cloaked in the Dharma of Ahimsa, with Love as His Form and Truth as His Word…to embrace all with the supreme sentiment…the heady fragrance of Shanti, thereby heralding comprehensive transformations. So the wellbeing of creation, of the solar system, of earth, of each and every being is His concern and gives Him Bliss.

Thus, the coming time frame commencing during the last week of March 2017 till Thursday, 27th April 2017 is a month of introspection, deep contemplation…and it ought to prompt, precipitate an expansion in consciousness escorting an enlightened way of living. It should then culminate in the celebration of Sai…within and without…throughout. The Presence of Beloved Swami has to be joyfully extolled in every inch and atom that surrounds us – in the mineral world, the plant world, the animal/bird/aquatic world…and the human world.

Be it the soft colours of dawn or the blazing hues of a unique sunset; the sweltering desert sands or the icy Himalayan peaks; the mysterious waters of the deep sea or the gushing flow of rivers and streams; the magnificent wild animals or the chirping melodies of winged wonders; the blossoms of Spring or bitter winds of Winter; the elements five or that breath that gives life; the hard toils of the farmer or the helpless woes of the homeless; the innocence of a new born or the wisdom of the seers; the wealth of the wealthy or the paucity of those challenged; the meek or the strong, the righteous or the wrong; masculine, feminine, old or young…all are divinely connected, finely spun and strung…Sathya Sai is the core basis of this Cosmic Spectrum…

The Lord did us bless with colossal opportunities for random acts of kindness! Loving Obeisance to Beloved Bhagawan – the Teacher Supreme and His Supreme Teaching of Love and Peace to all Creation…

The You Inside Of You Is Waiting For You



Friday, 25th March 2011.
7.15 pm.

As the Lord’s divine chariot was gently manoeuvred through the hushed spellbound host of devotees…none were aware as regards the heartrending sequence of events that the Beloved One had decided to determine determinedly. Certainly this crucial decision would have a stunning impact and lead to shattering tremors…heartrending for those who adored Him to the exclusion of all else.
No one in that congregation or those tuning in from elsewhere the globe over, had even a tiny, wee bit inkling, not even an iota of an iota of an inkling that this was to be the last public darshan hitherto. None were given a peek into the script of the Supreme Script Writer and Director…for His Cosmic Leela was and is based on the shimmering waves of trust, faith, patience and surrender…and those who yearned to be a part of it needed to sift, wrench and pull apart any lacklustre, unrequired, unnecessary, ‘excess-baggage’ habits, characteristics, biases and attitude.

What He ultimately chose to inflict upon His Divine Frame…
…for the ultimate benefit and upliftment of the human race…
…is completely beyond any mortal mind to understand…
…or even try to appreciate, gauge, interpret or unravel,
For sure,
…even if one tries to do so…it will remain as mere conjecture.

Of the Universe He is the Cause…He dictates the Decrees and the Codes of the Cosmos…and the Flawless One is beyond any laws…thus, there is none in the created world to decipher His Pause. Sovereign, Indomitable, Almighty is His Resolve and Will.
Still, not getting darshans of the enchanting Physical Form always remains an inexplicable tug, a gnawing unignorable soreness…an incalculable loss that nothing or no one can recompense…which even time does respect…feeling helpless it cannot help heal…it then attempts to help us deal…depending upon our prayerful implore…bringing along many a sweet caress of the Precious One’s omnipresent largesse…opening up episodes, events that wondrously connects and bequeaths an everlasting endorse.

When we begin to see Bhagawan in everything around us…the visible, the invisible; the sentient, the insentient…when we bless ourselves to feel Him in that soothing wisp of the breeze…or the playful whisper of rustling leaves upon the trees; the dazzling sun rays or the reflection of playful moonbeams upon the ocean waves; the tinkle of some far off temple bells or the mystical sea sound in conch shells; in that wonderful dawn, the soft hues of a sunrise or the spectacular sunsets where each one is a distinct surprise; in those that doubt or those devout; those versatile or those that never smile…in the vulnerable cry of a newborn whether in the humankind or the wild…when awareness arises that in every being…winged, finned, two legged or four…it is Mother Sai Who revels at each one’s core…we commence to manifest theYou inside of you…the Me inside of me…the Us inside of us…the Sai beyond the egocentric i…’ and thus we comprehend that darshans never end…

It is that moment now…to rise, arise…to the You within…the Truth within…for the You inside of you is brimming and waiting…for you…to then spill into everything around you.

Come, dear ones…sweet children of Mother Sai…through the intensification of ‘Samastha Lokaah Sukhino Bhavantu…Samastha Jeeva Sukhino Bhavantu…’…through the review and the reevaluated view of harmonious kindred oneness, let us expressly manifest darshans anew…surge on…soar high with Beloved Sai…revel in a timeless avenue…eternally in a sublime rendezvous. Let us manifest that miracle…let us manifest darshans anew.

A Silent…Sai Lent Offering…Intend A Potent Intent

Together Let’s Make A Daily Intent For Peace…

Requirements:
A Medium Size Box
A Pen
Some Paper
An Intent

Inscribe
Samastha Lokaah Sukhino Bhavantu…Samastha Jeeva Sukhino Bhavantu can be written around the box
(Optional – As and when time gently gifts you some time…you may decorate your special Box that has been exclusively created to exude Love and Peace…loving, loving expansive peace…Prashanti for all beings whether wise or naive…young or old…incarnate or disincarnate…embracing all creatures both great and small…fragile, strong, tiny or mighty…)

Your intent is the most vital component for any kind of accomplishment or manifestation!

Daily, at least once, write the above chants on a piece of paper and place in the box
(It is up to each person how many times he/she may like to write SLSB/SJSB)

Love and Peace are the soul’s natural inheritance…restore this abundance…release it from the core…allow it to reign the fore.

Beloved Bhagawan chose this period of Lent to perform an extraordinarily astounding leela…while enacting a Cosmic Drama with refined precision…absolutely in accordance to the script written by Him.  The aftermath of this episode naturally leaves mankind, those that are aware, in a state of extreme shock and agony…giving way gradually to the acceptance of His Divine Will.

He also chose Easter day – 24th April 2011 to aloof Himself from the physical.

The Cherished One, having chosen the period of Lent for His stay in the SSSIHMS and His – this most baffling, unfathomable Drama culminating in the ‘withdrawal, disappearance’ of His Beatific Form…with a hidden ‘For the Time Being’ board…and His choosing to remain momentarily unseen as the scenes play on upon the Earthly Screen…for the past few years…hasn’t it linked us even more deeply, unequivocally, vocally, silently to this period…this Season of Lent…Sai Lent? 

Isn’t the onus upon us all, His children…the children of Sai…to make proper use of this period He has lent us all….? Shouldn’t we enhance our study, our practice…our steady practice while inching towards graduation day, while honouring our enlistment in the classroom of the Universe…the University of Sai…where the ether becomes the expansive roof?

Come then, with steadfast intent and pristine passion…let us in unison pray –
Samastha Lokaah Sukhino Bhavantu…Samastha Jeeva Sukhino Bhavantu…
May there be peace for all those that inhabit the globe through…may there be peace for all beings the Universe through…may this vibrant resonance…all personal and environmental negativity undo… that includes cleansing within me and you…
Samastha Lokaah Sukhino Bhavantu…Samastha Jeeva Sukhino Bhavantu…at the macro (lokaah) and micro (jeeva) level…may the Cosmos, Mother Earth, the World…each Heart that beats…know and feel peace, experience kindred harmony…that is sublime and true!

Peace arises out of the sentiment of Oneness! Intent, express, manifest…bestow this matchless largesse. 

Love you…Peace be yours…and be you in Peace too…

When Will Man His Ways End…When Will Atrocities On Animals End?

whenwillman2017_fbms

In Support Of All Sentient Beings In Creation

The uprising in Tamil Nadu in favour of lifting the ban on Jallikattu is indeed appallingly uncivilised, tilting towards most frenzied and bizarre. The protesters, completely bereft of kindred sentiments, callously display banners that say ‘Save Jallikattu’…showing zilch consideration towards this stately animal that intrinsically prefers its solitude. This movement has the support of the so called educated public too. Does this mean that education in this day and age in our country is deficient in morals and the principles of peaceful co-existence with all forms of life? Shouldn’t culture exude refined ethics of Help Ever, Hurt Never…Love All, Serve All…causing no harm to co-inhabitants of the land? Shouldn’t the placards instead read ‘Save The Bulls From Torture And The Egocentric Ways Of Man’ thereby offering true allegiance to the words human, humane qualities and humanity? It is tragic that sensitive people of wonderful Tamil Nadu insensitively call Jallikkatu a sport…citing tradition. This is not a sport but a tragic and  indecent pastime that disregards the feelings of a living being while immensely bewildering it with actions amounting to harassment akin to mauling and molestation. The plight of the acutely stressed animal is remorselessly overlooked for deplorable moments of pleasure and vainglorious amusement of man.

Are we as human beings so lacking in ‘cruelty free’ ideas and initiatives for ‘entertainment’ that scores of people try to deliberately goad, pin down, frighten, traumatise a living being that has in no way provided any provocation and holds no grudge towards members of the human species? Isn’t such behaviour inhuman, beastly and barbaric?

The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.
– Mahatma Gandhi

Being placed on the top rung of the ladder of creation, the onus is on man to protect, look after, shield and shelter all other creatures on the planet. Animals, birds and aquatic beings have feelings too, the same as other citizens of the world.

Thus these questions naturally follow…
Is it rational to be loyal to a tradition that reeks of brutality and does not spread the message of human values?

Is it acceptable for spiritual leaders of repute to support ‘rituals’ that are against the ‘spirit’ of India and of Ahimsa?

Isn’t sport a recreational activity that gives pleasure and refreshes the people taking part in it? Those who participate do so willingly. Is this and other such events that involve animals a legitimate ‘sport’ where living creatures are forced to engage in a one sided game where there is no fun in it for them and only perverse amusement for the ‘unevolved’ minds and ‘heartless’ hearts of some individuals from the human race? How sporting are human beings then? Doesn’t this only serve to attract negative karmic repercussions? Has conscience been relegated to the backseat? Bulls represent the mount of Lord Shiva and should be revered as such.

An intense prayer resounds from the depth of the soul –
May consciousness expand…may compassion reign supreme in the hearts of all human beings…may human kind know the blessing of the word kind. May people of earth grow in awareness that the suffering and pain felt by any living being is the same. May these universal chants find a place in the human daily life –
Samastha Jeeva Sukhino Bhavantu…Aum Sarve Bhavantu Sukhinaḥ, Sarve Santu Nirāmayāḥ, Sarve Bhadrāṇi Paśyantu, Mā Kashchit Dukh Bhāgbhavet…

Care for life, Concern for Nature and Respect/Reverence for All Beings in Creation is the code of conduct for this beautiful land and its diverse populace which intrinsically includes its magnificent flora and fauna.
And this is the true unique tradition/culture to be valued and revered.

An earnest appeal to the Honourable President and Prime Minister and the praiseworthy judges of the Supreme Court to let this ban on Jallikattu remain so as a decree upholding righteousness, ahimsa and maitri bhav…kindred harmony.

Have You Ever Wondered Why, Beloved Mother Sai…?

haveuever1i miss You, Swami…my Beloved Mother Sai…
i miss You,
Have You ever wondered why…?
You are Omniscient…All Knowing…
Yet, i ask this of You…
Have You ever wondered why…?
The tears never did dry, Mother Sai…
…they keep spilling over drenching my heart…
…utterly futile are any attempts to placate, mollify…
…appease or cajole…
…silently they protest the excruciating blow You dealt the soul…

haveuever2Have You ever wondered why, Enchanting Sai…
Why i will never recover until i…
…see You again…
…or merge in You…?
Even if i merge in You before i see You again…
…to life i may not have bid an appropriate adieu…
…too much of regret…so much to rue…
Have You ever wondered why, my Precious Sai…
…i do not feel content, satisfied or fulfilled hitherto…?
It’s because i never had my fill of You…

haveuever3Have You ever wondered why, my Dear, Dear Sai,
i do not feel You actualised Your Mission completely…
…as yet…
That the era of Sathya Sai has much more in store…?
Your Words…Your Commitments…
There is more, more, more,
This i know for sure deep within my core,
Since each word You uttered is a commitment…
How can i not await the fulfilment,
Of Sathya…
…the Word of Sathya…the Truth of Sathya…?
Or else nothing will be true…nothing will hold true…
…and that cannot be…
…as it would the spirit of creation subdue…
…freezing the Mystic Opera…the present Cosmic Revue…

truthofsathyaHave You ever wondered why i keep calling You to return,
Why i ceaselessly cry out to You to reappear…
…resume Your Mission, Oh! Almighty Sai…?
Have You ever wondered why i seek Thee,
Thy Kingdom Come, Lord Sai?
Are You not the sole remedy, Mother Sai?
There is none but You,
The globe in its prevailing chaotic state needs You…
…the mineral, plant, animal world needs You,
Humankind needs You…
…their link with being ‘human’ and ‘kind’ to renew,
Mother Nature, Mother Earth truly needs You,
…we need You…i need You too,
So come, why don’t You…?
End this intermission,
Command the transformation…

thykingdomcome_2017
…the mental reform and the soul’s perfect renovation…
There is no rhythm left…no harmony that one can identify,
Come, rectify peace upon Earth,
…Your Kingdom fortify…reunify…
Surely You know, Oh! Loving, Loving Sai,
Your Presence does instantaneously synchronicity magnify,
Oh! Thee…the Greatest Avatar…
…the Supreme Monarch of the Universe,
Do not delay any more,
Come now, so i don’t have to sigh…
…and keep wondering why…
…why…why…why…
…i am still existing here in this tumultuous milieu…
…without You, Beloved Mother Sai…
