Guru Charitra – Experience and thoughts.

So read this book – “Guru Charitra”

Writing few words on reading the English translation of this book. The Marathi version is very much in detail and is read with a particular discipline. I followed the “Parayan” reading rules for reading the book. Which meant i read chapters in bunch as prescribed for best uninterrupted experience to get the expected essence from the book. 
Understanding this needs one to have faith in the stories that have happened in real. Reading books like this helps you to understand why is the particular person or diety worshipped. Many might reject the devotion or love by ignoring to read. But i feel reading one gets a Glimpse of what is that which was revered so much and helps you to interact with community following it with so much reverence. One must read with an open mind. Faithful people will find solace in the book. The explanation of misery through cause and effect or Karma spanning not just this lifetime but also from past and subsequent relieving experiences might act as solace to many. 
I found this book amazing and it talks in detail through life stories of Gurudev Sri Narasimha Saraswati and Gurudev Sripad Shri Vallabha about the many questions that come across people. 
Right from Karma Kanda to Gyana to Bhakti to letting know everything has some reason and that pure love, praytna, prayaschitta, devotion can let you cross any dungeon or mountain that traps you into viels of misery.
It also helps us give perspective into aachar / code of conduct that can benefit and give many peace of mind. 
It goes to explain through many examples that all that misery never stays for long and that Divine is every listening. It also tries to make us understand many of life miseries are a direct result of our own action and sincere prayer and vow and readiness for repentance is the best remedy.
An open disclaimer is also given which talks that certain things were right according to the time period of the stories and users should read it with discretion.
Overall reading it definitely acts and gives effect as a soothing balm to the troubled/ inquisitive / doubtful mind. I recommend this to be read by all. 

Does Best Friend Exist?

Friends

 

Friends

Here is an interesting thought by a friend and my answer to it :

There is nothing on this planet as a best friend or a buddy.
It is merely an illusion.
Your Guru is only ur best friend.
As they say in Cocktail : Sri Sri, Tumhi ho bandhu sakha tumhi ho!
And trust me,It hurts more than any betrayal.
So never accept anybody your best friend.
Or on second thoughts, if you can’t do the above,Start making new friends!

Here’s my take :
Everyone has a role to play in life.
When you say best friend and Say only Guru meets the qualification..
You mean to say, one who unconditionally gives you love & support.
Accept the fact, that, at most times, Guru element, in someone is dominant and they will make you feel special.
But to expect that this will last a lifetime, is foolishness.
Honor their Guru element, dont try to measure it πŸ™‚
Or don’t try to hold it.

Everyone has a role to play in your life and you should let them play their roles.
Some stay for one month, some six and some a year or more.
Whatever be the time, Be grateful for the good they gave and learn from the bad they showed you.
There is no need to go extremes, as Not making friends at all or making too many friends.
You just love the deserving ones who value you, who have spent quality time with you and who again and again get back to you πŸ™‚
Be there to give best to them.

Dont ever try to focus more on others, who treat you as option.
Dont even try to label anyone.

Give time for friendship to be better.
And you dont proclaim from your side, that we are best friends.
When it becomes a good friendship, you unanimously dawn upon that and start living like that.

Give friendship time to blossom.
Don’t be in a hurry to evaluate it.

Let both proclaim together.

I would say on a ending note.
Let the relationship be..however it is.Don’t label it, as Good, better, best or worst.
Let time decide whats the value of it.
And you still don’t name it.
You instead enjoy and live that πŸ™‚

Good day to you all!

Stumbling into Infinity!

Breakfree! πŸ˜€

When you realise the vastness of life, moments become insignificant!

You are much more than failures, relationships and jobs!

Wake up and start living πŸ™‚

The more you go deep into life, the more you realise you are untouched by all these!

Make sure to use knowledge to make you strong to live life and not weak to host inertia in you!

Q : What about astrology isnt it nice to know yourself through astrology?

A: Bits of what is said in astrology is true πŸ™‚

With a Master in life there is a surity of having the best every possible moment! Astrology shows you whats happening and that can change if you have a Master πŸ™‚

All the more with a Guru/ Master in life you already have experienced that you are beautiful and worthwhile.

You can listen to astrology,but dont get stuck up in words!

Be ready to know what wont be working and what will be working for you in life πŸ™‚ and just continue to giving your hundred percent!

If its good celebrate more πŸ˜‰

If it counts bad then like the saying goes ” if life gives you lemons better make lemonades!” Give your best shot anyway! πŸ˜€

Q:How do i use knowledge?

A : Just give your hundred percent in life. Do your tasks with sincerity and skill. Meditate some time, help some people and sing for the divine! All this to be done with a smile!

You will be amazed to see the beautiful you within some time πŸ™‚

PS : when you start feeling that, just know you are in knowledge πŸ™‚

->You are great!

Well Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder!

sundarta dekhne wale ke ankhon mein hoti hain!

You can appreciate greatness only if Β you are happy!

And Guru/ Master is the sign of happiness in your life!

so well you just justified your happiness! πŸ˜€

Q : In earlier times, feelings were more important than words.

But now a days words have great importance since people dont understand feelings!

A : Its true for those who dont understand feelings!

Reason, now a days people are so thriving on the outer world; that things such as feelings which is subtle is so difficult to be let in the system!

Words are gross and are the only thing that seem to be interpreted in such cases!

Well in olden times Β this wasnt the case since people much thrived on the inner world and could interprete feeling which are much more subtler!

-> I doubt myself and dont find life worthwhile! I have lost faith!

Doubt is the first thought that occurs to yourself.

You start believing it as a reality; when others point out!

And when you realise the infinite you, the beautiful you; at that moment you stop doubting and start living!

Stumbling into Infinity! πŸ˜€

As Vikram Bhaiya sung in one song..

Shabdon ke jungle mein tu kyun phasa hain..

Parbrahma ke raas mein tera nas nas sama hain!

Anand tu hain parmanand tu hain!

Om mein khokar, Om main ramkar, Om se milna hain!

Live life, love life!

Stay Happy Stay Blessed!

Love Prayers Blessings!

JaiGurudeva!
