Theme for this 13th edition of the Journal:  Who or What is Babaji for You ?

It has been over thirty years since Babaji’s Maha Samadhi and we wanted to ask how we have come to understand his presence on this Earth in the meantime.   So we posed this question:  Who or what is he for us today ?   Is he outside or inside or beyond ?  And how have we distilled our experience of him ?  On the following pages are some enlightening and profound answers from a broad range of contributors

In January 1984 Babaji traveled to Allahabad and stayed in the house of Dipu Banerjee where He inaugurated the Sidheshwari temple. With His own hands he gave life to the murti’s. A big one from Kali Ma, Ganesh, Kalbeirav and a Shiva Lingam.This happened on the 26th of January 1984.

Following the long ceremony of the inauguration there was a great havan next to the temple. After the havan Babaji sat down on an assan which was prepared for him in the courtyard of the house. It was actually a bed which was prepared as an assan on which He sat sideways in the middle.

There was a long darshan line happening. There were some people standing around the assan to help, besides myself I remember only Major Johsi, Naveen Johsi, Dipu Banerjee and Mahant Baba, but there were more.

At a certain point there was a Sikh man of small stature in line and up on reaching Babaji started to ask Him something. The line was still long and Babaji made some gestures with His hand to tell him to come by the side. This man stepped out of the line and tried to sit on the assan by the side of Babaji. Babaji gave a strong loud reaction and made a big thing out of it and inspired us to take action against this man. Major Johsi and others jumped right into action but the man seemed completely shocked himself and was excusing himself for his misunderstanding. Babaji ordered the man to be thrown out and then turned to me and said beat him ! I was totally shocked as it seemed so obvious to me that it was a mistake, but Babaji repeated it once more so I walked after the others who were escorting him away. He kept on begging for excuse and with 3/4 Indian elders handling the situation it seemed completely out of order to beat this man, so I walked back to Babaji. Baba asked me as soon as He saw me ” Did you beat him ?” I said no Baba but he is now being brought out by the others and is leaving. NO, You go and beat this man Babaji exclaimed strongly to me. It seemed so out of place this whole thing so I kept looking at Babaji to understand if there was perhaps another message woven into this what was going on but He repeated it again to me…..go and beat him and send me with gestures in that same direction. Inspired by His strong impulse I went after this man who was now standing at the road side still talking Major & Naveen Johsi in orderly manor asking forgiveness and expressing his not understanding the situation. He was small and even if he did not understand full of remorse. Inspired by Babaji I was ready to beat up Rambo but seeing this small man completely confused asking for forgiveness I just could not imagine hitting him…….so I stayed listening to the conversation, stayed away for half an hour from the immediate presence of Babaji to avoid being send to beat him up again.    Later Babaji did not bring it up again.

This was Babaji’s last yatra ( trip ) in this form to date 32 years ago. From here Vishnu Datt Shastri was going home to spend some time with his family. He did not know this was the last time he would see this form of Babaji alive. On leaving Babaji recited a small poem to Shastriji , roughly translated; ” a leaf has broken of the tree, the wind is blowing it away, who knows where it will land.

When only a few weeks later Babaji had taken Maha Samadi shastriji kept repeating this over and over again with tears in his eyes that he understood this message only later…..

I have often wondered why Babaji seemed so persistent for me to beat up this guy. What was the message here. It was so clearly an innocent mistake and the simple man did not seem to have any meanness in him. It was certainly a message to me. I felt after that I will always need to look after His assan, that no charlatan or impostor would ever try to claim or possess it. So far so good……..May He always guide me…..and you…..

Bhole Baba ki Jai !

Q: How do mantras work on the body:

Om Haidiyakhandi mantra.?

A: I have mentioned before that whatever is outside in the universe,  is also in the body.

The same way, there is a place for each deity in the human body.

Prabhuji told me that, when the actions of yoga start in the body, they start first in the muladhara chakra, from below.

But this “Haidiyakhandi yoga” is a very special yoga which starts from the sahasrara chakra, from the top.

And one by one, from above downwards, it will pierce all the chakras.

Sri Shastriji says that these different letters and these different words have different ways of reaching different places of your body through all the channels of your veins. They are carried along by the five airs, “vyana,” “apana,” “prana,” “udana,” “samana.”

They pierce through with your breathing at one spot, piercing that spot and reaching the deity residing there. By repeatedly repeating this mantra, this name, you create a sort of collection of energy there, and the key fits the lock and the number of the lock opens…

Makar Sankranti 2016

 Logo_1

 MAKAR SANKRANTI-2016

Makar Sankranti is a major harvest festival celebrated in various parts of India. According to the lunar calendar, when the sun moves from the Tropic of Cancer to the Tropic of Capricorn or from Dakshinayana to Uttarayana, in the month of Poush in mid-January, it commemorates the beginning of the harvest season and cessation of the northeast monsoon in South India. The movement of the earth from one zodiac sign into another is called Sankranti and as the Sun moves into the Capricorn zodiac known as Makar in Hindi, this occasion is named as Makar Sankranti in the Indian context. In 2016 the Makarsankranti festival is celebrated on the 15th January 2016.

Makar Sankranti, apart from a harvest festival is also regarded as the beginning of an auspicious phase in Indian culture. It is said as the ‘holy phase of transition’. It marks the end of an inauspicious phase which according to the Hindu calendar begins around mid-December. It is believed that any auspicious and sacred ritual can be sanctified in any Hindu family, this day onwards. Scientifically, this day marks the beginning of warmer and longer days compared to the nights. In other words, Sankranti marks the termination of winter season and beginning of a new harvest or spring season.

To Hindus, the Sun stands for knowledge, spiritual light and wisdom. Makar Sankranti signifies that we should turn away from the darkness of delusion in which we live, and begin to enjoy a new life with bright light within us to shine brighter.

PS, This year  the festival is being observed on 15th January.
