Mahavatar Babaji and Sri Yukteswar Giri:
Swami Sri Yukteswar Giri, Guru of Paramahansa Yogananda, was given the assignment by Mahavatar Babaji to write a book entitled The Holy Science: “The purpose of this book is to show as clearly as possible that there is no difference in the truths inculcated by the various faiths, that there is but one method by which the world, both external and internal, has evolved, and that there is but one Goal admitted by all scriptures". [To find Divine Love within the Heart ... and To Attain The Divine].
“Life and Death come under the control of the yogi who perseveres in the practice of Pranayama. In that way he saves his body from the premature decay that overtakes most men, and can remain as long as he wishes in his present physical form, thus having time to work out his karma in one body and to fulfill (and so get rid of) all the various desires of his heart. Finally purified, he is no longer required to come again into the world under the influence of Maya. Darkness, or to suffer the “second death.” -Sri Yukteswar Giri: The Holy Science.
Sri Yukteswar writes, in the above regard, that The Christian Bible teaches the same:
I Corinthians: I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord; I die daily.
Revelation 2:10: John writes – “I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet.
Revelation 2:11: “Christ Jesus speaks: “I am Alpha and Omega [the beginning and the end –no, birth, no death], the first and the last. What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia: Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.”
Sri Swami Vishwananda:
After death, you have to go again through life, but there is always opportunity. There’s opportunity wherever you are. When He puts you here He, also, always plans everything for you, but, also, you have your plan. That’s the difference. So why do you have to wait for dying? You can look for the opportunity right now. On this right moment you can look for opportunities and hold them, and rise, and let this Love guide you. Let your heart guide you. Don’t allow the mind to guide you, because the mind will always corrupt you.”
“Actually, the ego is not that powerful. It seems powerful; it looks like it is powerful because one lets it be powerful and lets it be governed by this energy. That’s why it seems very powerful. If you put certain challenges to yourself, where is the power of the ego? It will run away.” –Sri Swami Vishwananda

August 21-22 at Shree Peetha Nilaya
When boys and girls run and play they accumulate camaraderie that sometimes lasts for a lifetime. Let it be known to you that even that friendship will end one day. Each time one incarnates, one comes into Earth life with a different personality. The soul is the same and even the mission is life may be the same but there will be variations each time one enters. We do recognize our past play- mates but it is a strong attraction, we think, from the present.
The aim in situations like this is to spoon-feed the relationship instead of running head-long into love with the person. This rushing gets one into much emotional turmoil in life. Be brave and true to your inner Guru and nurture such relationships slowly. In this way you will proceed with caution until you have learned the lessons you were meant to learn in the present. Be cautious, loving and true to your Self.
Whenever we pray, we pray toward the outside, we say God is here and we are apart. We should stop really separating the Divine and us. Try your best always to pray. It doesn’t matter which kind. If you talk with God, you talk with your True Self inside you. Do it from the heart.
We do our prayers in quantity by burning lots of candles and lots of lights and saying to God, “Here, this is my prayer to You, God!” But what God really wants is the quality of your prayer. God wants our prayers to come from the heart without any doubt or negativity.
Every prayer, every thought, every action, vibrates on a certain level. Raise the frequency of vibration; raise it in your consciousness. You are an instrument of the Divine. Let us show that we are this instrument, not just by saying it but also by our actions and how we welcome everything.
Rainy Night Prayer to Mahavatar Babaji
Dearly Beloved Master, praying to you
On this rainy night in August 2011
Brings bhakti tears of gratitude
For all that You are, and all
That You ever lovingly give.
Oh, such sweet memories from
Down through the centuries
Come to mind of Your Loving Grace and
Your commitment to the human souls
To stay with us until the time of freedom
For everyone . . .every soul, every
Woman, man and child on Planet Earth.
The wind is blowing and the rain is pouring
On this dark, mystical night in time,
When I am at the ashram, Shree Peetha Nilaya,
Of my beloved Satguru, Sri Swami Vishwananda.
And He is away … elsewhere in the world … somewhere.
I think of Him, and I think of You,
As my knees bow to pray in the quite of the night,
So long and lonely while hearing …
Seeing … the howling wind
And the cold, down-pouring rain.
Then as my soul vibration blends with You in prayer,
I find solace in Your Love and comforting Heart.
Then I know, once again, what eternally is true:
Our hearts beat as one always,
Even as all hearts that choose to be in synch,
Beat in tune with Your Heart.
And I know this when I pray, meditate and write,
As You have instructed me so to do.
I feel light as a feather, and joy floods
My soul as my heart recognizes Your
Heartbeat and we are resonating
In Divine Attunement … in harmony, like
Your Disciple Paramahansa Yogananda taught:
“Aim always to please God and Guru!”
I pray to You in love and the deepest gratitude,
My Master, my Paramguru,
My Beloved Mahavatar Babaji.
Forever Love, OM and Amen.
Paramgurudev Mahavatar Kriya Babaj
Chanting Sri Swami Vishwananda
Windows show a petite picture of this world,
Sometimes beautiful and sometimes not. . .
So the unenlightened mind judges.
Night dreams, which seem more real
Than the dreams of waking life,
Bring forth picture-presents from the soul.
Recently recovered files
From the birthplace of dreams
Play upon the screen of the morning mind
Like pieces of the puzzle of life being fit together
One, by one, by one.
These etheric dream experiences
Restyle life into higher vibration
When one reviews and uses them for
What they are. . .
Then the soul-presents are neither judged as
beautiful or not beautiful, for they simply are. . .
Sublime, inspiring, transcendent Messages
From the True Self to the illusionary self.
And So It Is!
Prayer for the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit
Note: The question asked of Mahavatar Babaji pertaining to yesterday's blog about his teaching, Babaji responded in the comments on yesterday's entry.
In the following podomatic episode, Swami talks about the way to live a life of love and the ways in which one can achieve it. The talk was given in Finland during Darshan 23rd of August 2010, "Unite your mind with your heart."
“Divine Mother has said to me:
Whoever will ask in my name, she will fulfill whatever they ask for, as long as it is beneficial. So whenever you need anything, if you ask in my name she shall fulfill it for you, not only today (Guru Purnima 2011) but always.”
Sever the ignorant doubt in your heart with the sword of self-knowledge. Observe your discipline. Arise.
Krishna – Bhagavad Gita
Let us come together as a world family taking our positions and duties in life as One Being, united in the common goal of Unity created from the Heart Space of that known to you as Divine Love evermore. I am Babaji, your true heart companion now and forever, Amen and OM.
To Every Thing There is a Season - Ecclesiastes 3. 1-8
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under
the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant
and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down,
and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn,
and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep,
and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence,
and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war,
and a time of peace.
