Interview with GOD

A sweet friend shared this with and am sharing it to you…. 🙂
I dreamed I had an Interview with GOD.
“So, you would like to interview me?” GOD asked.
“If you have time,” I said.
GOD smiled. “My time is eternity… what questions do you have in mind for me?”
“What surprises you the most about humankind?”
GOD answered.
“That they get bored with childhood, that they rush to grow up, and then long to be children again.”
“That they lose their health to make money… and then lose their money to restore their health.”
“That by thinking anxiously about the future, they forget the present, such that they live in neither the present nor the future.”
“That they live as if they would never die, and die as though they had never lived.”
GOD’s hand took mine… and we were silent for a while.
And then I asked, “As a parent, what are some of life’s lessons you want your children to learn?”
GOD replied, “To learn they cannot make anyone love them. All they can do is let themselves be loved.”
“To learn that it is not good to compare themselves to others.”
“To learn to forgive by practicing forgiveness.”
“To learn that it only takes a few seconds to open profound wounds in those they love, and it can take many years to heal them.”
“To learn that a rich person is not one who has the most, but is one who needs the least.”
“To learn that there are people who love them dearly, but simply do not yet know how to express or show their feelings.”
“To learn that two people can look at the same thing, and see it differently.”
“To learn that it is not enough that they forgive one another, but they must also forgive themselves.”
“Thank you for your time,” I said humbly.
“Is there anything else you would like your children to know?”
GOD smiled, and said… “Just know that I am here.”
“Always.”

Be as a Bee!

“Events come and go, they perish like flowers. 
But every event and every person contains some honey. 
Like a bee, just take the honey out of every event and every moment and move on.
 Be like a busy bee and be in the being.”

and

“Life teaches you the art of letting go in every event. 
When you have learnt to let go, 
you will be joyful and as you start being joyful, 
more will be given to you.”

Sri Sri

life’s like that….

One would get subtle hints from circumstances, nature etc ki kya sahi hai…
Nature guides us!
One gets certain notifications and subtle hints from Nature indicating about what should happen next…
Our guiding force…
I sometimes see every event as symbolic…

Teaching us something and giving the answers we have been seeking…

Every moment is making you grow

‎”Upanishad says when we start on the path, let there be no rejection. Acceptance is the path. Let there be no rejection at all, of any sort, because everything, every moment in life, pleasant and unpleasant, good and bad is making you grow. Let all this righteousness, this knowledge and this wisdom that is contained in the Upanishads and that is present in my soul, my being, blossom.” 
Sri Sri in Kena Upanishad

Padma Sadhana – its importance



IMPORTANCE OF PADMA SADHANA



I’ve been with yoga – off and on :D:D for various reasons… sometimes for health benefits, sometimes for tranquility.
Yoga means a beautiful “Yog” or “union” of mind, body and soul.
There are various padvatis or forms or paddhatis of yoga giving various benefits and experiences (Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga etc), and would like to highlight the importance of Padmasadhna here.



Padma Sadhana is a sequence of yoga asanas specially designed by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar for the DSN (Divya Samaj Nirman) Course. Padma means lotus and Sadhana means effort.

In the Agama tradition, it is said that the Devi (Goddess) sits on a 5 layered seat or asana. The base of this seat is a tortoise, which represents stability. The second layer is the snake, which represents awareness. Above the snake sits the lion, it symbolizes grace. Above the lion sits the Siddha, The Perfect Sage. And above the perfect sage sits the lotus, the symbol of full blossoming.
When our asanas have all these 5 qualities – Stability, Awareness, Grace, Perfection and Full blossoming, then the divinity dawns in us and that is Padma Sadhana.

Padma Sadhana refers to the blossoming of the mind, body and soul through the practice of these asanas. It releases many optimum hormones in the blood stream and induces tranquility and harmony, improving one’s alertness, dynamism, courage and commitment.

Doing Padmasadhana before Sudarshan Kriya deepens our experience and takes us deeper in meditation. It helps in centering our mind and consciousness.

Make Padmasadhana a daily part of your morning and evening practice.

‎”Life always flows in search of joy and the highest joy is in the Divine.
 We must always aim to attain the Divine. If you aim for the highest, your smaller desires will come to you (be fulfilled) anyway. 

If there is thirst you will get water. If there is no thirst, one would not bother about water. Similarly, there should be a thirst within us to attain the Divine, to know the highest truth, to know what life is, to know who we are.” Sri Sri.
