Satsang with Monika & Nityaananda (Originally Broadcast March 15th, 2016)
"So, my dear divine souls, think deeply of birth and death. Birth, death, in between what you did, try to find out, and how to do it for humanity. Awake, awake, awake. It is a wake up call. Awake. Don't underestimate what I am telling. Guru Parampara, awake. There is no retirement in Swami's life. Final retirement is his final sleep. It means it is also applicable to the whole student kingdom who travels with the main engine. Create peace with charity work to create unbelievable souls and healers in the globe. I am happy to sit in the last seat on the coach on the Lufthansa flight. But I hope the lift-ons of flight stewardess will serve me very well and take care of me because I have a lot of miles in my store alliance mileage account. No matter what, I am with every student in a happy mood, in a difficult mood, in any circumstance. Wherever you are, I am there. Wherever you go, I will be there. Trust me, I am your shadow. I know how to take care and protect. I will protect you forever and forever. Sitting in the last seat of the coach means everybody is sitting in the front, it means you're also pretty responsible. I am the last person. It means I'm giving the big torch to you. Okay, you take it. I'm happy to sit in the back. But still I'm warning, I'm working on you indirectly.
So, every person is thinking about your own personal problems. Fine. But don't you have social responsibilities, guys? You're thinking, "I want to do my dharma. I want to do my dharma. I want to do my dharma." Good. Which way do you want to do your dharma? Are you thinking about what's going on in the globe, how to take care of millions of souls weeping and crying? Have you ever thought about that? Right now in this century is different wars and different philosophers. Different healers are putting their own masala, changing in their own ego, in their own building up. They're talking pretty good. They spoiled it. They mixed it. Even in my spirituality, I don't even want to talk. Just give the ancient information, what has been existing for thousands of years just putting it in front of you. Go ahead, decide. Now is the time. It doesn't matter if I took somebody any time. One day you have to take it. We signed it already. Birth, next death, that's quite natural. Who cares about living 100 years? Make it shorter. Finish the work. Go peacefully."
These are the words of Sri Sai Kaleshwar Swami.
Nityaananda: Namaste and welcome to this special Sri Kaleshwar Mahasamadhi anniversary festival broadcast. I'm Nityananda from the Divine Lineage Healing Center in Laytonville, California.
Monika: Namaste. Monika here. On this very blessed occasion.
Nityaananda: Yes. Still feels strange to say happy Mahasamadhi Day, though. I have to say.
Nityaananda: That's my mundane human sentimentality. We just heard those amazing words of Swami's about... That really boils everything down in a nutshell, doesn't it? That was given towards the end of his life too, wasn't it?
Nityaananda: Sri Sai Kaleshwar Swami lived a short life. He was born January 8th, 1973 and took his final Mahasamadhi from this incarnation extensively March 15th. That's the calendar date, 2012. Just 39 years old, though all of us in the West who knew him, the entire time we knew him he was talking about taking off. Literally, the entire time. It might have even been in the very first talk. Nothing made sense like that, isn't it? He always was putting his life into a context from the very beginning with us as a guru.
Four years later, the proof of... And the sacrifice, actually, of his life lives on, really. His whole life was about bringing this ancient knowledge to the West in a way that was sustainable and that would bare fruit, actually, in a way that it would prove itself. What is knowledge other than what it allows have happen in the creation? And still four years is not that long. On this day it's a really beautiful opportunity to give even deeper gratitude to Swami, that soul, that divine soul. He's in all of our lives and the lives of many, many, many others. But just think about how many aspects of your life were touched and are operating right now because of knowing him, meeting him.
Monika: And that's what Swami in that opening quote, what was really Swami asking us, "What are you doing between your birth and death, that period of time? And are you thinking about what's going on in the world? Are you thinking about how you can help?" And thank God he had those thoughts. Thank God he had the inspiration and the thoughts to come to the West and share, let this lofty knowledge with Westerners who didn't understand pretty much the ABC's of what he was doing.
Monika: What a sacrifice that was, what patience.
Nityaananda: Well, exactly. He would say what he was learning along the way, too. That was his dharma. Literally, he woke up very quickly in this life. He had a very unusual childhood. As great Avatar and Dattatreya, characters will when they come into form. But as a young teenager and he's 14, he started that awakening process through recognizing his master, Shirdi Baba, with that first Darshan. He had Darshan and Shirdi Baba at age 14 in an abandoned temple near where he was living at the time, Bukkapatnam. And quickly his channels opened. And quickly also the source of the knowledge came into his consciousness as well, the palm leaf manuscripts. And as he said, in the beginning he was a normal person. He considered himself to be a normal person with normal hobbies and ambitions as a young Indian man, young man. He wanted to be a doctor. His father wanted him to be a doctor, anyway. But that's not a bad ambition.
Monika: And studied botany, actually. Botany and chemistry. Which, for many years, he would test people about it.
Nityaananda: Yeah, it was supernatural, his knowledge of botany and chemistry. And other things, too. But he believed only that the palm leaf manuscripts were authentic. His belief was in the manuscripts, and he read them and studied and practiced. And that was part of his process. You can say in way it's like a self study awakened. Everybody needs a guru and a source of a knowledge, and his guru was out of the body his entire lifetime. He studied it, his channels opened through guides from his guru outside of his body. It was quite remarkable and unusual situation. He also took the council and advice of many, many, many other saints and sages, men and women around India.
Nityaananda: In his very, very young years he traveled around India with amazing stories. His life was a blockbuster before we even met him in his early 20s, but as soon as that awakening, a certain stage of that awakening, the miraculous energy flowing like waterfall around his presence, then he received the instruction from the nature. Both I would say the Mother and the Father, but clearly from, "Mom, I'll go to the West and find the students there." His whole life was about bringing knowledge to the West. That has to be understood. As he said, India is the place where the knowledge is alive and has survived all these years, thousands and thousands of eons of the knowledge has been there. And as he said, India is done. The knowledge, the land is blessed. There's hundreds of thousands of holy places of power spots. Thousands and thousands of people reach enlightenment, and then the Samadhi's operating there. He said the world needs his knowledge. It's about bringing it in and operating this knowledge in the West.
Monika: What about bringing and operating the divine energy? Because that is the knowledge, right?
Nityaananda: Yes, that's right.
Monika: How to receive the divine energy, how to implement that and how to help and use that to create a peaceful, beautiful world? And that was Swami's aim.=
Nityaananda: Yes, absolutely. And he made dozens and dozens of trips to the West, and he focused his amazing attention and energy literally night and day on several hundred students at a time in Penukonda during his lifetime. And he learned as he went along. We met him in 1997 as many people did, his first trip to America. Shortly after that, he went to Germany for the first time. He had gone to Japan maybe before coming to America on that first trip, but focusing completely on the modern day Western mentality. And thank you Swami for everything you did. The lives of everybody that he touched changed, and that's really improved his life in a way, like you said, what's in that dash. His life is a living example of what it means to give your attention and priority to humanity more over your personal needs, what that looks like, how it affects.=
Monika: And his real aim was to find people who would spread and teach the knowledge and share it. Even in the early days in the very beginning he was given a list of potential people to come in and interview, for interviews and stuff. And he was looking for the people who he saw would take this and do something with it, put it in the Western terms and to share that, to help uplift.
Nityaananda: Yeah. In a way he's a Jyaneshwar, he's a Kabir, he's in that whole line of characters throughout the Eastern tradition who made it part of their life and at certain incarnation to bring the ancient and otherwise hidden and unknown knowledge held in the hands of a few. Here it is and held in the hands of almost no one, held in the palm leaf books but understandable to almost no one. Translating that into the common language of the day, of the people, he is so much that way, isn't he? And that's what's happening now. This ancient... These formulas, starting with the five elements through everything. Surya chandra nadi, Maheshwari, Mother Divine, Shiva darshan, it's unbelievable what he shared with his limited but growing throughout his life capacity with the English language, because English is that common language of the planet today, isn't it?
Nityaananda: So, that's another aspect of Sri Kaleshwar and that is as a Jyaneshwar, another great saint who took samadhi at a very young age.
Monika: Whose also same goal to bring the knowledge to the people in the language of the people, the common people.
Nityaananda: Right. That's us.
Monika: It's us.
Nityaananda: It is us. We are the common people on this planet.
Monika: We are. We're not the Brahmin pundits.
Monika: And we're women.
Nityaananda: That's right, well there you go.
Monika: Speaking for myself.
Nityaananda: Yes, thankfully. But really, that's another... That's an Anumaya link there, sharing the knowledge equally with men and women. All casts and creeds. Then we come to Shirdi Baba who only warns that all religions are technically one. During his life, the accomplishments of Sri Kaleshwar just boggle the mind that such a young person, so few years and with the resources that were... The normal world resources that were. He had supernatural resources but also the basis of that was the most amazing faith. His own personal faith and belief, and surrender, and humility, and service to our Guru parampara, to Shirdi Baba. He was the most do or die character you'd ever meet.
Nityaananda: If he would set that sankalpam, then all of his teachings he embodied there. When he says, "Try, try, try, keep trying. Let the negativity come, don't pay any attention." All of these things that are so hard, and we know how difficult that is as a human being. We saw him demonstrate that to the tune of creating in a thorn-infested, rocky, very backward rural village that happens to be all the power and energy of Penukonda, but still for all those years the Penukonda just languished before Swami came. And other saints had tried to come and do things there, and the energy would not allow it then his special relationship with...
Monika: With the Mother.
Nityaananda: Exactly. But still, we take all these things for granted, what we know about Swami and his life but when we start dissecting out his life a little bit, teasing it apart, we can see, "Wow," all these different chapters are astronomically amazing. Capturing the Mother who was guarding Penukonda and then beginning to build what is a five star ashram made for westerners, essentially that was what he catered to when we first... Went 1997, there was a different ashram. Very, very different ashram and thousands and thousands. It's not exaggeration is it, we're not speaking hyperbole when we say thousands of Indians would come every moon for a chance for his darshan or his blessing. It's really true.
Monika: It's really true. In the early days it really was like that.
Nityaananda: He was 23 years old.
Monika: Thousands and thousands, and then he closed it. He closed it 'cause he wanted to focus only on westerners, and for a long time in the ashram there were maybe 60, 70 people... The census would be like that 40...
Nityaananda: Or 20, 25.
Monika: Right or 20 and 25. That went for many years like that. And he wanted to focus on western students and he knew if he let the Indians come, that would just grow and there would be tens of thousands that would come for his blessings and...
Nityaananda: Exactly and his time would be completely diverted, he said.
Monika: His time is limited.
Nityaananda: So he paid a price for that culturally and in... And for sure he did because how would that bode anywhere if a major figure in the community or in the society is excluding the local to give attention to visitors. That was his graciousness to be able to put up with what he had to put up with to do that. But it was also a great melting pot of bringing the west and the east together in that place and around him, he was able to do that wherever he went. He was the captain of that ship and so that whole unity thing that Baba talks about, Swami demonstrated. He really did the community of living side by side with the westerner community and the Indian community was really amazing blessing, the Swami facilitated. He also had Indian students, he had... That was not our business, it's not our business so nobody know every chapter about Sri Kaleshwar for sure, lots of different angles. But he did and we saw him work with Indian sadhus, men and women, and saw amazing divine characters coming through that work. Do you remember that gathering, a few gatherings? Again this was in the early days before as many westerners would come.
Monika: Right, and all the saints came.
Nityaananda: Yeah. And the way...
Monika: And the way that they... The respect that they had for Swami and that was quite something to see that. I think for... Really, this is Swami's greatness really comes later and later and later as we're living past his maharsamadhi. And then he's entrusted the dharma for people to do and as we're fulfilling our dharma, you realize how much, so much then of what he did. You only can really appreciate it when you're doing some part of that yourself and then you say "Wow, now... "
Nityaananda: Holding that weight.
Monika: Holding the weight or he used to say for example, if you're going to the Mother and you're getting all these things from her, what're you gonna give to her. For example when he told people they'd get the nine strokes of the Mother and then what are you gonna give to her? And he said "For example, I made a deal with the Mother to create masters, so what does that mean in my life? That means how many hours do I have to spend taking care of people." Right? It was very practical, it's like... And you saw that. It means you have to give the most precious thing that you have which is your time and your energy, and then that's really what he did. Constantly there was only that of fulfilling his promise to the divine and doing his duty. There really wasn't anyone you could ever say who was doing their duty more. Swami was such an embodiment of...
Nityaananda: Yeah. However it looked he was working it is true.
Monika: He was always working wherever he was, always looking at how he's going to uplift and help someone.
Nityaananda: Yeah. Taking on files, taking on problems, constantly problem solving. Sat guru he really showed that sat guru... But yeah he mentioned the Mother, we've mentioned her a couple of times which is very apropos, talking about Sri Kaleshwar. Sri Kaleshwar will be known... And as you said it's with the passage of time and actually... And through the lives and the divinity of his students that the real essence of any master or her students I should say, and that you can recognize any master, that's a truism in the ancient philosophy of all kinds and it's true. It's actually true in any field actually. The greatest professors in medicine they're really recognized because of how many amazing doctors came through their training. So Swami, his ambition is for his students to be soul doctors, and embodying all those divine qualities that we call saintly, and that we need so desperately in the world today. One of those great things about Swami was his relationship with the Mother too, he'll be know as the person who... I mean along with yoga, now I'm gonna start talking about the Mother bit. It's very still under-appreciated, but more and more and more... And the understanding and experience of the divine feminine energy, of God as female energy, that Shakti principle.
There's no way to describe how much we owe a debt to Swami for bringing that back, reminding the world about the Mother. How many hundreds of people had physical Darshan with her? And then the knowledge and the understanding, and through the practice of that knowledge and understanding, and the purifications... The personal experience of the mother, and the... There's hundreds of students of Sri Kaleshwar's, who actually have a very depth understanding of Mother Divine, really at the place of being able to talk to the Sadhus at kumbha mela, just side by side, talking about the Mother. Jai Sri Kaleshwar, he personally was an amazing success with the Mother, wasn't he?
Nityaananda: In his own sadhna.
Monika: Veerabrahmendra predicted he would come at that time, at the base of the mountain, and he would bring the knowledge of Mother Divine, and bring the energy channels of Mother Divine. And...
Nityaananda: And be the same as Mother somehow. I think a lot of people around the world, over the years have had interesting conversations, trying to figure out, "Okay, who is this soul, Sri Kaleshwar?" And one of the answers that comes up sometimes, "Well, he must be an avatar of the Mother... " And in some ways that makes perfect sense. We can't say that, but... Poetically. We personally won the Mother, going through all the energy strokes with her, at a very young age, akin to the age of Jesus. Actually, even earlier than Jesus. And then he played by her rules and also... I won't say tricked, but the Dakta energy surprises the Mother, and she loves that, and he extended his life by many years through his special relationship with the Mother. Because once you reach that level of winning all the vidyas, all the tatvas, all the strokes of the Mother, the nature generally won't allow a body like that to hang around for more than 32, 33 years. And he went to 39.
Nityaananda: He's the master of group process. He decided... He got that blessing from the Mother to make at least one student greater than... I don't remember how he finished that... Jesus or Baba, or whatever it is... And then in 2006, he told that story, when he taught the Moon Shaka for the first time, publicly. And he said, "As of today, there's more than 60 that have everything in place. The purification is pending [chuckle] but the channels and everything are in place, to switch on... " Again, that's the Father's blessing, the guru's role... To open the channels, when the time is proper. Since 2006 to 2012, how many more? You have to say a few hundred. We don't wanna put a glass ceiling on that. Who can know what he was doing? Group process, he said, "Why... " He taught and he practiced how to send... Use essentially the same energy to benefit groups of people, like in the yogas. Somehow the rules were two, and maybe three people witnessing could get the same blessings, but he figured out ways to...
Monika: To share with us and divide the blessings.
Nityaananda: Yeah, exactly, with hundreds, so that Mother Divine, Darshan, which traditionally would take, in the day of vishwamitra, maybe a thousand years of sadhna, and then... And even in the Kalyuga, for sure 30 or 40, or more. Then there's no guarantee there at all. There's characters like Viswayogi, who were 40 years failuring, until they came back into Swami's guidance there. Wasn't Mahesh Wadi... When a 130 people got Darshan, some of them had been doing sadhna for a couple of weeks, for 10 minutes a day. And that's also not an exaggeration. It's hard to say but it's true. It has to be said. That was how powerful the energy channels that he mastered, he shared with the world.
Monika: Well, and it was also his incredible creativity, because he had so many genius qualities. But one of the ways was, if there was someone who could figure out a shortcut in this creation... Which was one of the reasons he said that he was sent at this time 'cause this isn't the time to do thousands of years of sadhna. It really is... We need to get it fast, so. He was the... He could find it. If there were some angle to mix the energies and put them together so that it could get the greatest benefit, he would find it.
Nityaananda: But he took pains to say it, but, "I'm not a mad scientist." He said, "I'm not experimenting with you." Although overall the ages, this is a soul of Saptarishi, Sri Kaleshwar, his very unusual life, any time a Saptarishi comes. They come, it's a mystery, it's not our business to know everything, but to have even a glimpse of that life is unbelievable. And in the last years, so many of those lives have come in the last 100 years, 150 years. Ramakrishna, Paramahamsa, and Vivekananda, also Saptarishis and their disciples, and Yogananda.
Monika: Ramana Maharshi.
Nityaananda: Yeah, and Ramana Maharshi. And Shirdi Baba is alive during this time too. I mean, look, this is a density of Saptarishis coming into form, and then Bhagwan Nityaaandna, Muktananda for sure the whole mission coming to the West include... This is kind of the story of how it's coming and then Sri Kaleshwar and others, but Sri Kaleshwar in our lives so powerfully. There is a mission to bring the energy through the knowledge or the knowledge through the energy to the West. You can see it. It's unfolding now. Sri Kaleshwar really showed us what it was to be a divine human being. He believed in if you could help a little, you could help a lot. He believed if you could be selfless a little, you can be very, very humble and selfless a lot. He believed in taking the good things to their furthest extreme whenever possible, as often as possible, and redefining that extreme even in worldly things. In the supernatural, it's obvious. We've shared some already about that.
Nityaananda: That in the worldly things, like if there's a hungry village, well fine. If we can take care of one hungry village, why can't we take care of 900 hungry villages? So his programs were like that. If there's blindness in one section of the area around Penukonda, how come we just can't take care of the blindness which is anywhere around? Huge, massive social programs. I mean, Sri Kaleshwar personally is responsible for AP state changing the way that they... The price of rice, which eventually changed the price of rice in the entire country of India. That is absolutely true. We saw this unfolding before our eyes in a drought crisis when there was starvation going on and Swami, with great help I would say of everybody in the ashram including the financial help of the westerners, strongly the financial help of the westerners, set up these camps and took care of these thousands of starving people and their animals for a few months, and got the government to get involved in ways it had not been involved before. Straightly he was on the phone with all these government officials and got, and so "Why can't rice basically be free?" I mean, it's like. I don't remember what it was.
Monika: It was two rupees a kg.
Nityaananda: Two rupees a kg or something. It's a human right. Swami really believed in basic human rights including the right to live...
Monika: The right to eat.
Nityaananda: The right to eat, the right to have water, the right to have a home. And that policy was within a year adopted all over India. As politics will go, the story is told in different ways but I can say that's my experience, first hand experience of a social action that he was behind the scenes. Like he said, he didn't care about credit at all. He always said, "I don't care if you know my name, just help. I know something that if you practice it, it can help. Please try."
He mentions over and over in his teachings especially towards the end of his life, "Go and work in your countries. Share what you know. Heal. Try." Anything. I mean, he basically took all the dikshas off. Can we try the energy with this? Yes. This? Yes. This? Yes. I have this idea. Good. I mean he was just basically saying "Go, go."
Monika: Try, try, try. Use your creativity. Really, if there's one thing about Swami that he really loved, admired, respected and also kept developing and flaming whenever he could was people's creativity nature, how they could take something and in whatever way it would be, in any form, it didn't matter. Take something to mind and put it into a form that will help, and follow that inspiration. And that kind of creativity, he loved it. When people had the discipline and the dedication to have an idea and follow it through.
Nityaananda: Yeah, he did foster that, didn't he? He would sometimes drive us crazy with all the new projects and ideas. Maybe it's not sometimes, I mean, I think it still happens.
It is still happening. Because that's the whole thing. Swami talked from the beginning about taking samadhi. Why is that? Is it because he was just gonna take really a holiday and be on a vacation? No. It's part of the teachings that the deeper, however you wanna describe it, the more complicated very esoteric understandings of the reality things include how the Samadhis operate and how the Samadhis are actually blessing and kind of holding this planet all the time, throughout all the ages, the connection of the Samadhis to the divine energy. And he was pointing to that from the beginning, when he was talking about, "I am going to take Samadhi as soon as possible, then I'll be a million times more powerful in your lives." That was really the bottom line. And that never, ever wavered for 15 years. It never wavered. Through all the ups and down of different Leelas. And we could almost say different phases. There was his puffy phase, and there was his thin phase, and whatever it is. But through all that, this connection to what his life is setting up in its own way, his samadhi to operate from there, just in analogous way, the same as Baba lived his life, and that's what we really taught us a lot about how... And the world is learning a lot right now, how Baba is operating from his Samadhi.
Now, Sri Kaleshwar is operating from his Samadhi in all of our lives. That's the most important thing that we can talk about today, because that's operating right now. That's the present energy if we're gonna fulfill anything, if we're gonna purify, if we're going to accomplish anything great, we need to understand that and believe it, and we do, we do.
Monika: And develop it actually, cause it's really our connection to Swami's consciousness, which is what he's operating right now. Our consciousness, our Brahma consciousnesses, the inner guru is the same, that is Swami. And now he is there working with us to bring us to that understanding of that reality inside ourselves, and that's what he wants. A lot of awakened souls.
Nityaananda: Exactly. And he is there to... I mean, he is here, there, everywhere, I sound like Doctor Seuss. But...
That is true, I love that view, that simple view of things is all we really need. Operating the knowledge that he share, understanding it actually, because he gave... Even though he gave a cup of the ocean, that cup looks like and feels like an ocean. And the knowledge that he gave is still so much to be mind there, and to be experienced and then shared with the world.
He predicted one of his... He had many prophesies and they keep coming true. One of his prophesies about the way that knowledge would flow into the west and grow, take route in the west, through practice in the west, changing the vibrations from the planetary vaastu actually started to change the vibrations from that point of view all around the world. As that happened, after his Samadhi, that the students would go a lot faster than they did before his Samadhi. That was another thing that was very consistent teaching. All along, that the people who would come later, the souls who would enter the energy later would go much faster and actually farther than the students that who were seating with him. We were the ones he was telling that, that's maybe why it's a little uncomfortable to hear.
But it was always consistently there, and one of the mechanisms of that is this conscious mechanism we're talking about right now, is that he's no longer constrained by the limitations, and also the surrender necessary to any soul that's inside the five elements, he doesn't have that anymore. He charged his bones, he has a Samadhi, not only that but he distributed hundreds and thousands of power objects and direct blessings of people, which also contain direct soul channels to his consciousness. Now, he can operate unfettered in a way, completely compared with being in the body, but he's got these channels, each life he touches is a channel. Every picture of him on the planet is a channel. What opens that channel it's our heart, it's our personal relationship with him, not the relationship we thought we had or we imagined we had in the past, or that we wanted and never had. However it is and we capture our attention in our own self hypnosis there, but the relationship that we have right now, in every right now for the rest of your life, what is that right now? What does my heart posture? What is my connection? That's how to open that channel, it's purely through the heart.
And for that reason, he's operating in the most mysterious and amazing ways in different places. Because matters of the heart are not something that you can see externally, they're not something that you write on your resume. It's a day to day, moment to moment posture, attitude, relationship, and engagement with Swami in this case. It's straightly there. He came and he did suffer a lot, he really did, he suffered the karmas of his students very, very much like Jesus and Baba, in his own way.
Monika: Well, also, what Swami was doing was creating masters. However long that takes, whether it's one lifetime or two lifetimes or three lifetimes, but he said, "To create one of those masters, the amount of karma that you have to take is not... " He said, "I could have a million devotees with that cerebral karma." So he was taking the karma.
Nityaananda: Simple devotees, one million, one master, equal.
Monika: Equal, the karma. So that's a heavy load of karmas, and he took many of those karmas and that was part of the job he was doing as well as teaching. Purifying, because to become a divine soul like that takes a great deal, it's a different category than just being a devotee.
Nityaananda: Yes, and he was a healer no matter what. The Mecca, he was a living embodiment of everything he taught about the soul mechanisms. He called himself a soul scientist and he said that we were too. He asked us to research these things the way he did. And whenever there is anything going on at the level of soul, automatically, healing's happening, karmas are being burnt, experienced, freedom is happening in the presence of the light and he was such a great... He is such a great light, so he was healing no matter where he was. We could talk about him as healer. We talked about him. He would look at everything as healing. He would look at his teaching and the creation of masters as a kind of a healing. He called Jesus and Baba great healers. Buddha, a great healer. But also, he demonstrated that the greatness of... And the miraculous power that exists through God's cosmic energy that anything's possible. Again, it became more unpredictable as the time went by as it became more avadhut, but he demonstrated really a lot of amazing healing. I don't even know a number, really. I mean, cancers, tumors. Not to mention heartbreak, depression, inspiration, hope. All those things that are really the hallmarks of supernatural healing.
But he demonstrated that anything is possible and that's another aspect of his life that we wanna underline for all those that are practicing the knowledge in turning to Sri Kaleshwar on their lives and that is that anything that inside of you that thinks something's impossible, you have to kick out. That was one of the messages on his life. Nothing is impossible. Anything, everything is possible through God's will, through cosmic energy, through purification and sankalpam. And we need that offering in the planet. There seems to be a lot of impossible problems. This is the fourth anniversary, that means this at least the third call we've done and marking this festival. And I can say that hasn't changed at all during all this time, the depths of the darkness that we're all living in the midst of. We need that miraculous thinking, potentially, and then that creativity nature.
Monika: Well, the big blessing for this day in particular, but every day, is that we can connect to Sri Kaleshwar's consciousness very easily. And today'll be a day of that kind of reflection and also that celebration. Today in the afternoon, we're going to do a fire puja, and special bhajans, and fire puja. So it's a time when we can really make use of this special time.
Nityaananda: Maybe that's Swami calling. He's known to do that, he's a wild character.
Monika: He's called a few people's phones.
Nityaananda: Yeah. Nityaananda: Yeah, so we're gonna celebrate and we're gonna give thanks and we're gonna embrace our life with the same passion and divinity that that opening quote instructed us to by our Guru, Sri Kaleshwar.
