Meditation- The lifeline for the Dark Era Kalyug
The dark era of Kalyug is characterized by a decline or an increasing overshadowing of the purity and divinity in humans. Spirituality degenerates and materialism escalates; humility is lost, and egoism has no restrictions; kindness and compassion are scorned, and selfishness is unbounded; generosity and goodwill are tainted with escalating greed a...

Build The Unbreakable Bond of True Love

Build The Unbreakable Bond of True Love
In this context (of building one strong and unbreakable bond of true love to the Guru), Shri Maharaj Ji cites the beautiful example of the cuckoo. The cuckoo lays its eggs in the nest of the crow. Once the eggs hatch, the cuckoo sings in a sweet voice. The moment the chicks of the cuckoo hears those melodious notes, they fly to the cuckoo, who is t...

Drown In The Ocean of Love

Drown In The Ocean of Love
When it comes to offering our love, then, why is it so that our love for the Guru is not as pure or as clear? Let us close our eyes and glance into our hearts and honestly discern whether our True Guru "alone" is the Lord of that space. Are we really doing that prem-sadhna which is marked by purity? The truth is that we have established so many rel...

Gyan-knowledge-and-Prem-love-Two-sides-of-the-same-coin
It is true that most of us are sincerely trying to meditate in this time of trial. However, why are we still not able to completely connect with our Guru and establish a concrete bond with Him? The answer to this is that along with dhyan-sadhna (focused meditation), we must also do prem-sadhna (devotional meditation and love for the Guru). Doing on...

Disable the Wings of Mind

Disable the Wings of Mind
Like the parrot who was picking off its wing feathers was because it wanted to make sure that it doesn't fly away from his Guru, we too need to disable our wings of buddhi (vacillating mindset). Unless we do that, take it in writing, these wings will certainly take us away from the path shown by our Guru. But how do we do that? How do we look past ...

Gender Equality Starts With Self Realization

Gender Equality Starts With Self Realization
T oday, I have a letter to share with you. A letter of a life that would have been with us but could not make it. A letter from an unborn girl child. She says:            "I was killed for a crime that I did not commit. Rather, for a crime that wasn't a crime at all. I quietly lay in the dingy room hoping to see the be...

Tune Yourself to The Guru

Tune Yourself To The Guru
Who understood this design (incidence of Agni Pariksha – trial by fire) of Lord Ram? It was after two ages that Goswami Tulsidas realized the essence of this entire event and mentioned it in Shri Ram Charit Manas. How could he comprehend?

Can We Comprehend God in His Saguna (formed) State?

Can We Comprehend God in His Saguna (formed) State
We must remember that the Nirguna (formless state of God) is yet comprehensible, but not the Saguna (form) one! Saint Tulsidas writes in the Ram Charit Manas – "Nirguna roop sulabh ati saguna janne nahi koi" – that the formless state of God, which is the brilliant light, is easy to identify. There is no ambiguity in it at all. But when God descends...

Before You Chose Guru; He Chose You!

Before You Chose Guru; He Chose You!
Once a disciple was sitting with Guru Maharaj Ji and with folded hands, he asked Maharaj Ji how would we know that we are walking on this path steadfastly?

How Is Money Related To Spirituality?

How Is Money Related To Spirituality?
Once a visitor supplicated to Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji for wealth, riches, and luxuries as these were his deepest desires.

Always-Remember-Teachings-Of-a-Spiritual-Maste_20200808-043057_1
Yamacharya explains in the Kathopanishad that if one remains neglectful of the gyan (knowledge) of the Guru while the body is alive, then the soul is doomed to wander in restlessness and anxiety for aeons together after this body perishes. Thus, if one wants to walk long and go far on this path then remember one gospel of truth – perceive all your ...
