You have to know the truth, satya. You have to know your duty, the dharma. You have to receive the peace, shanti. Even if you have millions of dollars, billions of dollars, it doesn't give peace of mind to you. Prema — love, immortal love, pure divine love —you have to receive that in you, you have to hold it in you. Once you have the wisdom of strong love in you then there is no difference between you and the Guru Paramparas. The Guru Paramparas are nothing but satya, dharma, shanti, prema. Who has these qualities, these four abilities, who are carrying them will be able to achieve and receive to any extent, to any level. You will enjoy the divine blessings, guys. Moreover, I'm sure everyone's heart is very open and very beautiful. Be very strong. Be confident. Throw your monkey mind aside. Take all these points, what I’ve said, and be prepared. Your Swami knows what to do in your lives to make you to grow in spirituality, to give strong amazing experiences. Good. Be prepared.
Adi Shankaracharya's & Ramakrishna Paramahamsa's experience with Divine Mother.
During the 15 years of living and studying with Sri Kaleshwar in Penukonda, India, I was blessed to have had many conversations while working on the ancient knowledge, editing and writing books with him. Some of this material is already found in books in its edited form. Reading the original dialog gives an experience of what it was like to sit with him. Sri Kaleshwar, who we called Swami or Guruji, was a great joy to be with, he was informal, unpretentious, funny, a captivating storyteller and a wellspring of divine wisdom. His energy was totally infectious.
This conversation with Swami, Philip Lipetz and I, took place on March 12, 1999, late evening, 11 pm, sitting by his dhuni. Swami was 26 years old.
I was dizzy, the laws of physics were skewed, solid marble was fluctuating like waves. I was nauseous, I felt like I was spinning upside down, like the first time you got too drunk and were spinning in your bed. Except I was more aware and sober than I had ever been in my life. The energy of this Emerald Lingam and the Sky mantra raged through reality around me in utter silence. Shirdi Sai Baba was there. Swami was there, as with a whole lot of other characters that I did not officially meet until that day. That was the day that I met the Divine Lineage...
During the transition from the age of darkness into the light, there will be many changes as the world goes through a purification process. The challenges we will face will act as a catalyst for souls to return to spiritual ideals and values. Faith will be the refuge during these times, and loving and caring for one another a necessity. These events will serve to awaken humanity to their real purpose on Earth. It is special characteristic of this time, more than any other in history, that it is easier for souls to reach enlightenment than ever before. There will be a spiritual birth of many enlightened miraculous souls on the planet. As Swami Vivekananda described, “In time to come, Christs will be in numbers like bunches of grapes on a vine.” That time has started.
Nirvikalpa Samadhi is the state of pure consciousness, where there is no attachment or identification with one’s thoughts. Doing this powerful practice even for only a few minutes one can experience peace, clarity, and enter into meditation easily.
This video demonstrates how to do this simple and extraordinarily effective practice.
How to wash the blocks? Skepticism is always the biggest block in spirituality. Then, unworthiness and lack of faith—in yourself, the process and the master... Developing true love in you is the remedy for that. Love is the right medicine. If you keep loving, loving, loving, loving—loving your enemy, loving your friends, loving your children, loving the plants, loving the cat, loving the animals. Everywhere putting your pure love—no matter what. Then true love is developing. Then automatically your heart, your mind, your soul will get tuned as true pure love.
So, I’m walking through mud, carrying these padukas and in a hurry and occupied - there are a lot of clues here about the way the Father’s energy comes. It chooses certain moments that you’re already distracted, you’re distracting yourself. So I was distracted in my hurry. So I’m walking and enjoying the mud between my toes and trying to make my way as quickly as I can to the hotel. I look up and I’m in the area where there are farm fields and these old style mud huts, I mean the way I would imagine Shirdi looked when Baba was there. And then suddenly there was Baba about a hundred yards ahead of me in the direction I was walking, begging from one of the houses!
That's one of the things we need to develop as spiritual seekers on the planet today in this Kali Yuga, this concept of that personal relationship with the divine. It's really great that we share with each other to the degree that its appropriate. We support each other and we ask each other for help when we need it. We give each other what we are able to give. In the context of that we should, we’re also developing a new kind of confidence in ourselves. Not a big megalomaniacal type of confidence, or a spiritual egoism, which is really a big trap. It's an authentic and accurate confidence based on personal experience that God is there, the Divine Mother is real She's in our lives and and this is how She flows in each of our lives.
Look, this body is not permanent. One day we need to also get old. We don’t know what is going to happen. We need to love the humanity. If you cannot love the humanity, we don’t have the right to ask God for any gifts. God is nothing but doing the service to humanity. Once if you are doing the service to humanity, automatically God is taking care of you—all angles.
This physical body, I don’t know how long it will be on this globe, or exist on the planet. Since years I’m telling this. I don’t know. It’s the Guru Parmapara’s grace and order. I don’t know how many times I can come to America. It’s your mother country; that’s your nation. And the globe is so hungry. You need to take care of that society. Create the peace and wisdom there.
The Shirdi Sai Baba stotram is a heartful prayer, which is connected to no specific religion. In Shirdi Sai Baba’s lifetime, he created a bridge connecting all religions, showing that we all are one, and that the true religion is the practice of love, forgiveness, faith and patience. This stotram, sung for almost a hundred years, consists of 108 ‘glorious’ names of Shirdi Sai Baba, reflecting his extraordinary life and deeds.

What would each of us not give to be able to be in the presence of Baba and to speak to him? To have him speak to us? When one enters into this book deeply, that is exactly what is happening. You are with Baba. This book is alive. His consciousness is in the words. And when you approach the book with stillness you’re not approaching the book through mental activity, rather you’re letting your entire body energetically absorb the life force of his words and the life force of consciousness. During these periods of sustained immersion with the energy of the book, I really realized that to open your heart and to be with this book is literally to be having your head at Baba’s feet. That you are literally, immediately in his presence, within his consciousness and allowing his consciousness to flood in, in place of your own egoic consciousness and that is a state of pure bliss. Listen here to sharing of full talk.

Discipline is the most important, my dear divine souls. If you lost the discipline you will be in trouble. Whatever you want to win it, until to you win it, keep try, keep try, try, try, try, try, try, try. Everything is possible in the planet. You have that capacity, capability. I didn't come here as a master. I came as your friend. I know something. You don't know something. Once if you know that what I know it, we're equal. I want to see you guys the most strongest powerful healers. Especially the America land, the soil of the land, it have that power. But you're not recognizing that.
“Maybe we could ask (Jesus) to sing about Paradise through us? Why don’t you ask the Man of Love for help? Ask him to bring you closer to the goal, to Paradise, with each bhajan you sing. And ask him for the gift to be able to sing like he would have sung.” Gustav Vighneshwara
On Christmas Day, our dear friend and soul brother, Gustav Vighneshwara, left his body after a long illness. He was surrounded by love and joy as he took his final journey and was liberated from his body. We are happy that his soul is free to fly high now but we will miss him dearly.
Swami was once asked a question, “If Baba was still in his body, what would you do?” Swami answered, “I would just do seva to Baba”. Baba’s spiritual process was entirely seva (selfless service) to his master. Swami said, “He got training from the master Venkusa in supernatural siddhis and unbelievable things. Shirdi Baba never learned any mantras, he just did seva for Venkusa. Everyday his seva duties were to wash his master’s clothes, cut the wood, make the fire, and make Venkusa’s place with a pure clean fragrance. Venkusa always asked, “Come to give massage. Clean my room.”

Every person should know this truth – studentism is like slavery. Studentism is feeling your master is God. Don’t do that. It’s a big crime. Love a master as a friend, and as a brother. Give your thanks to him. If you have the bhakti way then you can touch his feet. In India, thousands of years back they found some supernatural things. It’s being kept a secret. The masters don’t release it to the public. Or, even if they release it, they do not give perfect guidelines to implement it. Students have nobody showing them how to drive the car. What good is a car, no matter how beautiful it is, if you cannot drive it? I know car driving. I give the car keys to you. I show you how to drive. When you have a car and know how to drive you are a new person. Instead of driving their own car, so many people say, “Jesus is great, Shirdi Baba is great, Mother Divine is great.” So what! Ok, they are great. So what! When will you become great like that? Do you want to be a slave forever and ever? Why are they so great? Why are you not that great? If you want to see the real thing – focus. The person who is making you focus is not God. He’s a friend who came in your life bringing light to push you. On one level he’s a God to you, but the real God is what he experienced, what you are experiencing.
