Approaching the Great Teacher

Earlier in the morning I was reading a book on J Krishnamurti and came across some beautiful lines: Awake, arise, having approached the great teacher, learn. The road is difficult, the crossing is as the sharp edge of a razor. Katha Upanishad III These words had an impact this morning. Some of us are fortunate toContinue reading “Approaching the Great Teacher”

What is Wisdom?

The biggest declaration is one that is made in your own very heart, your very being itself. It is a personal moment that whenever it is shared, it is lost and unless you are a mystic, you cannot afford to share it yet. Bathe in the wisdom that you have discovered in your own being,Continue reading “What is Wisdom?”

With Baba Ji – my journey continues…

You can wake up in the morning, everything will occur as normal but something is missing, something just doesn’t feel right. That is how I feel everyday since my Spiritual Master left His body three years ago. His kindness, His humility and His loving personality won many hearts and it definitely won mine.

I didn’t knowContinue reading “The Struggle continues”

Surrender – The Final Episode

How easy is it to surrender? The moment I let go of who I am and become the ‘I am’ then surrender is there. Surrender isn’t making yourself any lower, in fact it takes you on a higher dimension. You may want to ask, how is it that surrender helps? Why should I give anContinue reading “Surrender – The Final Episode”

The Love of the Guru

The moment I hear his voice, my whole world comes to a standstill, now it is only me and Him and that is all that matters. My Guru is my life, my soul, my everything. It is a relationship unlike any other. One way or another, we have relationships that expect and the expectations areContinue reading “The Love of the Guru”
