Dinesh Dada, Bawa and Bhanu Didi

Dinesh Dada
ABC happens in AOL. Attitudinal n Behavioral Changes.
Be leaders like the honeybees.
Makes wax & honey.
Wax of knowledge & the sweetness of Love.
Honey bee is strong also.

YES!+ nurtures Leadership, helps your talents blossom & kindles seva (service) & the attitude of responsibility.

If you want to create Guru Stories in your life,rather than listening to others stories & becoming jealous, take courage zone targets.

See to it that your courage zone target is not impractical, it should be on the inner side of impossibility.

350 youth from Assam formerly involved in militancy, took the AOL Leadership Training at Ashram.

Genetically modified food, being promoted by Sharad Pawar, is destroying the flora & fauna of our country & causing disease.

Some of our politicians, have Asuri Shakti, to combat it we need to use Daivi shakti.

Guruji kehte hai, us ghode pe mat baitho jiska lagam tumhare haat me nahi hai.

@khurshed Bawa has arrived and laughters & applauses are resounding in BadriVishala

Confusion is good, it means at least you have choices.

Q: how does it feel to b 42.
Bawa: Exactly like being 24, minus the confusion!

make AOL enhance everything else you do in life.

Acid test of enlightenment is ur photo should be in the GuruParampara photo.

Q: how to improve intuition?
Bawa: By doing sadhana, seva & satsang.

Q: do I need a Guru?
Bawa: if u need the answer, you need a Guru.

Q: AOl does excellent work, but why doesn’t media talk abt it?
Bawa: Because AOL doesn’t pay them.

Q: How to deal with dominating people?
Bawa: Dominate them back, so they know whats happening.

Q: how to combat corruption?
Bawa: You stop giving bribes first. Go out & vote. Create a vote bank of good people.

Dealing People & Mistakes!

So a dear friend of mine asked this genuine question!

How do u deal with anger and frustration when U relied on a certain someone and that certain someone screws it up for U knowing that it is of utmost importance to U?

This is what i could answer..

Communication is one factor that can be practised to get ur things done. Be clear in expressing and establishing the importance of getting ur work done on time. Lets take an example. If u want a Haar for G on Yesplus.. one would usually say pls bring haar. U should instead specify what size haar what kind of more things u want eg flowers and all.. and what time the person should reach the venue. All these things u know but u dont convey to the person u entrust the job to. So establishing a strong communication with the person and correctly making him realise the importance of ur work.

Second is taking committment from the person that the work be completed in certain period of time ๐Ÿ™‚ Be considerate and yet strict. Third is once given some task. Do follow up and find out giving them space of trust if they are facing any problems and if yes pls help them out to solve it.

One thing is dont move on assumptions. If still the person did something wrong then Find out exactly why!? And if its genuine enough tell the person how u could have better dealt the problem being unbiased. And make them realise how much painful it is to face when something like this happens. And if surpassing all if they are still hard skinned well u use ur own techniques skillfully to get their brains right on track

Much Love & Regards,
Swapnil ๐Ÿ™‚

Relationships Trust and Space !

JaiGurudev dear Ones,
So here are two classic situations that i came across.



Situation 1 :

Look there is a friend with whom I have right now a lot of misunderstanding.
And now he’s not ready to talk about it.
Like he keeps saying- forget it, chodd na, don’t delve into the past.. etc etc.. every time I try talking about it.
So its really pissing me off, because I want to know, what’s wrong, so that I can set things right, but he just wants to start afresh and not talk about it.
<< I dun knw wt he is >>
Before all this shit happened,both of us knew, that we like each other, as more than just friends.
But I don’t know, what it is like now.
Because he doesn’t even, want to talk about it.
And keeps saying chill no. Chodd na etc etc..
We weren’t dating.
Not my boyfriend.

A very good friend,but we just knew, that we liked each other as more than just friends.
Like, I can never say no to him or shout at him, even if I don’t like what’s happening.

So there was a time when the way he was behaving was bothering me too much.
So instead of shouting or saying anything.
I was a little sarcastic.
So probably that pissed him off.
But how much could I just keep putting up with it?
And then with all this,he apparently, told a mutual friend, that he couldn’t listen to more.
But he was just not bothered about him hurting me.
Or atleast that’s what I think..
So I don’t know, I am jus pissed.
He just started behaving weirdly without a reason.
And I’m stressing too much about it.
So much that it’s affecting my health.
I just want the friend, I had back like we were..

Help me out ๐Ÿ™‚

Ans :

A greater degree of relations heal with letting down your ego and forgiving each other.

Here’s an apology and truthful answer i could give to this question ..

Here’s what might work out if said to him..

Hey dear, i know i have been little sarcastic to you..
i am really sorry about it..
i just feel so bad and so distant even besides u.
Will you forgive me please.
Give me a chance to prove that i am worth being a best friend.
It feels so bad to wake up on a morning and find you have no one to take care and express your affection and love!
i miss ya man!
I miss the good old times we had.
Look, if there is anything wrong i did. and i know i did. I know i can’t change what you felt then.
Maybe never.
i just want to know, what should i have done..
i know i reacted. i want you to to help me out,to let me know ..
So that i don’t hurt somebody like u again ๐Ÿ™‚
Will you help me out knowing this ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s been killing me with curiosity, since so many days after i woke up after that reaction.
i just felt so worse, that how could i behave like that to a best friend of mine..
I was just not myself.
I just want you to understand, that maybe i was way too wrong, but will you let me back the same way, as we were before!
I just want another chance to prove myself ๐Ÿ™‚
one last thing is, its not the chill thing that kills me ..
its the thing that, after all this.. i am not even worth a reason.. that kills me ๐Ÿ™‚
i want to be a better person, please let me know the truth ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is what Gurudev says :

Q: If someone, whom you know loves and cares for you, doesnโ€™t show it to you anymore, how do you still believe that they do and not get angry with them?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: Give them some time, let them take a break and recharge them self to show you their care back again.

People do need a little bit of recharging again and again.
You have drawn all that love and attention from them and it needs a little more time to get recharged.

Just know they are recharging their batteries.

If you demand from someone to show you their love, it is not going to work. On the contrary, it will be counterproductive.

So never demand and never question, โ€˜Why donโ€™t you love me?โ€™ Donโ€™t say that.
In fact, you should say the other way around, โ€˜Why do you love me so much? I donโ€™t deserve it.

Why do you love me so much? You love me too much, I canโ€™t take it anymore.โ€™

Tell them this and you will see everything changes.

You know, it is such a burden for someone to prove their love for you.
Suppose someone tells you the same thing, โ€˜I donโ€™t think you love me, come on show me.โ€™
Then you will think, โ€˜Oh my God, how should I prove that I really love him.โ€™

It is such a burden and nobody wants to carry such a burden on their head all the time.
Everyday you come home and prove that you really love your spouse at home.

No! Take it for granted and move on. Donโ€™t try to make someone accountable to prove their love for you.


Situation 2 :

I have a friend and am talking to that person because..he started drinking after shiftingย  to a new place..And he is not ready to quit smoking at any cost..
And i told him to do YES!+, so he spoke utter rubbish about AOL & my i told him that i will talk to him when he quits smoking.
There is a cold war going on between us.
How do i handle this and get back?

Ans :

First you stop rejecting and chill out yourself..
Just accept this fact that he drinks n smokes..
Right now as a responsible person, just meet him once over a cup of coffee and with lots of love tell him that i don’t hate you..
just that whatever you are doing.. i am fearing it will make you feel miserable in future.. i don’t want to lose a friend like you..
If you feel, its difficult to give up, then i assure you, the techniques in the course i am telling, surely does help ๐Ÿ™‚

Look i feel so miserable seeing you go away, in smoking and drinking addictions.. tujhe kya problem hai.. ki tu drink aur smoke karta hai.. normal life is exciting too!
And i am telling, i have seen people, who used to drink heavily n smoke, that have found way out of this ๐Ÿ™‚

I know you are a hardworking person ๐Ÿ™‚
And deep down i know, you care for others too.
I respect you and right now i just feel there are better alternatives to feel the high like Kriya ๐Ÿ™‚

A very sincere request to you, to give up all this.
i am with you, if you want to give up.
Even if no one supports, i am there besides you..
will you just give it up..
If its difficult to give up at once, then give up for one week.. then practise next week.
Before that, come with me for next YES!+.
I am sure, you love fun.
YES!+ is all about, giving up the bad and becoming best.
I can’t promise you’ll be the best immediately, but you’ll surely get, what you need ๐Ÿ™‚


May you all be happy and peaceful!
Love and Light!
Swapnil ๐Ÿ™‚

PS : Hatred is just a doubt which u don’t dare to introspect and re-live it again and again..
Deep down you are just love.
Question your doubt, hatred and negativity, again and again.
This way instead of re-living; u relieve yourself ofย  all this negativity ๐Ÿ™‚

An afternoon with Pankaj ji :)

Note : could pen down whatever i could recall.. if any mistakes please do forgive and guide ๐Ÿ™‚

Sri Pankaj ji ๐Ÿ™‚

Excerpts from an afternoon with Pankajji ๐Ÿ™‚

Navratri is approaching ๐Ÿ™‚
Did you know first 3 days of Navratri are of Tamas – to remove the tamas.
Next three : Rajo gun- To remove the rajsik element..
and the last three : sattva : to enhance the sattva!

Thats why we do advance in Tamasic days, so that we will get strength to remove the rajsik element in us ๐Ÿ™‚

Lets go back to the history of Navratri in Ashram..
There was a time, when Ashram was so not well constructed and not so well connected to city..

So Navratri pujas used to be conducted there..
a very interesting thing.. you know simply sanskrit chantings is not enough..
it needs to be said in a particular tone, particular pronounciation..
then it has a very good effect on the mind body and soul ๐Ÿ™‚

So even though the Pujas used to be conducted,Guruji felt that our pandits could not chant the way it could be precisely;
Guruji then found out certain Pandit Sundarmurtiji..
HE had heard Sundarmurtiji and found that his chantings were perfect ones that are required ๐Ÿ™‚

So HE invited Sundarmurtiji to conduct the Puja.. ๐Ÿ™‚
It happened in the Old Meditation Hall with a small barricade, ahead of the kalash..
Now the kalash initially is light but over the days of Navratri it gets heavy with all chantings and the sattva ๐Ÿ™‚
On the Ashtami day, its taken from its place and parikrama is made twice around the place of Kalash..
Its said that if that water falls down then Pralay may happen all over!
so what’s the best place : the water is poured on Guruji after Parikrama ๐Ÿ™‚
and then its showered on all!

At that time, there were around 300+ people in the Puja.. ๐Ÿ™‚
But as years went by, numbers increased and so With time, the Navratri Puja shifted from Old Meditation Hall, and gradually to VM and
now at Yagyashala!

Sundarmurtiji then said, that he will conduct the Navratri Puja in Ashram only.. ๐Ÿ™‚

since then, of the whole of India, he performs this puja in Banglore Ashram only.

With time, there was a need to revive the Vedic knowledge.
At that time, only two teachers were there, one was 97 yr old and other was 70 yr old teacher who knew the Veda Agamas ๐Ÿ™‚

So the Ved Agama Pathshala was formed in 2001.

Starting from 20, its now rose to 450 Veda Boys ๐Ÿ™‚

With time, Guruji did find it would be difficult for people to come all the way the Bangalore and also there would be a problem in accomodating all ๐Ÿ™‚

So There were Rishis And Swamijis blessed to conduct Pujas, with the help of these Veda Boys ๐Ÿ™‚

Now its possible to have all that Mantra chantings as conducted in Ashram, right very close to you ๐Ÿ™‚

Q : when i am here it feels so nice, but as soon as i go out, its not possible to maintain that tranquility of mind? How do i do that?

A : You know same used to happen to me. When i used to leave Ashram before; there used to be such a heavy feeling in the heart.
I just did not want to leave. It used to be like; yaha achha lagta hai par waha achha nai lagta!
Then i became a teacher and i was surprised that i did not feel that heavy feeling while leaving the Ashram..
I wondered what was is it?
I found out that, there was no here and there ๐Ÿ™‚
Ab Main jaha jau, waha Ashram ko leke jata ๐Ÿ™‚
Ashram was where i am ๐Ÿ™‚ Its in the heart.. ๐Ÿ™‚
Now i no longer feel separated from the Ashram!

Mandir mane – Man ko dhairya dene wala.. ๐Ÿ™‚
isliye mandir jaate hai.. to give strength to the mind.

Jo khulega, woh khilega!
aur wo khilega, wo khulega ๐Ÿ™‚
Ek simple udarahan deta hu.
Kamal ka phool dekha hai?
Khichad main wo khilta hai..
wo aisa nai bolta, “niche kichad hai to main bhag jata hu, kichad se dur, aur dusri jagah khilta hu” ๐Ÿ™‚
Waise hi tumhe, dono bhi saath main karna hai; vyavasay-business and spirituality!
Khichad se, kamal ka phool, bandh hi upar ata hai..
Aur slowly slowly; wo khichad; kamal ke niche; ek parakh, ek layer banata hai!
par ab bhi wo nai khilta!
fir wo khichad ka layer; suraj ki roshni se jam jata hai ๐Ÿ™‚
Jab wo layer strong ho jata hai, tab usko protection milta hai ๐Ÿ™‚
Khichad ka layer bahar se strength deta hai aur uska trunk andar se khali aur khokla hota hai.
aur tab jakar wo khulta hai ๐Ÿ™‚
sahi samay par wo khulta hai ๐Ÿ™‚ kamal khichad ka sahara lete hue hosla rakhte hue..
usi kurupta ko apni shakti banata hai ๐Ÿ™‚
aur khulne ke baad fir wo khilta hai ๐Ÿ™‚

Aur abhi, is khile hue kamal ko sahara dene ke liye, khichad ki parakh bhi hai ๐Ÿ™‚

Ek aur cheez,dekho agar hamein kamal ka phool nikalna hai to hamein jhukna padta hai.. ๐Ÿ™‚

to khile hue ko nikalne ke liye, jhukna padta hai; aur nikalne ke baad.. uske sugandh ka anand, lene ke liye jhukna padta hai..

waise hi, khile hue admi ke saath hota hai ๐Ÿ™‚

..Chalo Aur batao,Laxmiji kis par baiththi hai? ๐Ÿ™‚

khile hue kamal ke upar ๐Ÿ™‚

waise hi, jab tum khuloge, yaane ke-jad nai hoge; aur khiloge, tab jakar, Laxmiji ka nivas tumhare aas pas hoga ๐Ÿ™‚

Tum khile hi nai ho, toh Laxmiji baithe kispe ๐Ÿ™‚

pehle khilo to sahi, fir Laxmiji aayegi ๐Ÿ™‚

Yeh advance course main kya hota hai..

Hamare jeevan main, karm se kuch daag lagte hai..

Daag ko dhone ka kaam, dhone wala karta hai. advance course karta hai ๐Ÿ™‚

Ab kitna daag hai, wo dhone wale ko pata, aur kitna mitana hai, wo bhi usko pata hai..

par kapda do to sahi.. advance course main jao to sahi.. ๐Ÿ™‚

aur agar kapda rigid ho jata hai, toh aur dhona padta hai.. aur advance courses.. ๐Ÿ™‚

toh apne aap ko, thoda khula rakhna, aur jadta chodke jana ๐Ÿ™‚

khuloge to khiloge ๐Ÿ™‚

Agar rigidity se bahar nikloge to blossom hoge.

tumhe to “ab” pe rehna chahiye .. par tum “kab” pe atke ho!

“kab” mera ye hoga, “kab” mera woh hoga!

arey “ab” main raho ๐Ÿ™‚

waise bhi sab milne ke baad kya hoga??

sab kuch mil gaya.. ab kya??

agar tab kuch nai ho raha, toh why not be in present moment now ๐Ÿ™‚

Eternity process wipes out the strong negative impressions from your life..

I remember i had laziness and i did the Eternity process and now its not there..

There was a reason, i used to be a plump milkman serving milk in front of a big Mahal.

and after selling the milk, i used to consume the remaining unsold milk ๐Ÿ˜€

haha ๐Ÿ™‚ the impression goes, but the incident may stay, as a funny incident in the memory ๐Ÿ™‚

The process goes over the seven lifetimes and whereever the impression is seen, its wiped out ๐Ÿ™‚

With laughter and smiles, the session ended ๐Ÿ™‚

followed by nice snacks made by Kaveetaji ๐Ÿ™‚

Mind was empty, stomach was full, heart was contented!

whats more required on a beautiful rainy sunday afternoon ๐Ÿ™‚

thank you kaveetaji and big thank you to Pankajji for a beautiful lovely eye opener session ๐Ÿ™‚

may more people experience your beautiful presence more often ๐Ÿ™‚

lots of love and pranaam Pankajji ๐Ÿ™‚

PS : A sincere advice: DONT Miss the Navratri celebrations!! Its the most blissful celebration .. ๐Ÿ™‚

A experience of silence, stillness and cleansing of the mind!

Chetna Jagrut ho jati hai!

Best time to offer your precious time to the Divine ๐Ÿ™‚

Next One in Mumbai :

28 Sept – 1st Oct – Advance Course

and 2,3,4 Oct – Various Homas

at Bandra Reclamation Grounds, Bandra West!



Stumbling into Infinity!

Breakfree! ๐Ÿ˜€

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

You are much more than failures, relationships and jobs!

Wake up and start living ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ and just continue to giving your hundred percent!

If its good celebrate more ๐Ÿ˜‰

If it counts bad then like the saying goes ” if life gives you lemons better make lemonades!” Give your best shot anyway! ๐Ÿ˜€

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

PS : when you start feeling that, just know you are in knowledge ๐Ÿ™‚

->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 ย you are happy!

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

so well you just justified your happiness! ๐Ÿ˜€

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 ย 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! ๐Ÿ˜€

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!


Swapnil ๐Ÿ™‚

Did u ask?


A friend of mine asked me ” Your group goes around so much for so many events and why not the big one significant and so on and on.. just complaining and complaining!”

I smiled and contemplated

Here’s what i thought on a cooler note! ๐Ÿ™‚

Dont point out problems! If you can bring a change effectively without hurting out anybody’s sentiments!

Pls go ahead! ๐Ÿ™‚

We would be pleased to see the team going in action!

Secondly its easy to criticize! very easy! But to see the problem as if its urs and giving a solution as if its going to solve a problem that very few do!

Dont shout out the problem, speak up and help ๐Ÿ™‚

A helping hand is lot more better than a chattering mouth! ๐Ÿ™‚

Peace to u! :))

Why do Jawaans say JaiHind always as they enter the office!??

Ans : A reminder that they belong to the country ย first and that they have stepped in to serve the country! ๐Ÿ™‚

A not so poor man asked me on the road. ” Whats the time Sir”

I saw the watch and said ” its 10:3opm” ย although precisely it was 10:40pm but i preferred saying a round off figure ๐Ÿ™‚

He asked again are u sure sir!

I ย said yeah! ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh in my watch its 10:40!ย I just confirmed if my watch was going right in minuteS!

i was ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

I said yeah yeah thats the perfect time!

Seconds and minutes counted in his life!

He could not dare miss a minute in his life nor do i ๐Ÿ™‚


Some ask because they know it ๐Ÿ™‚

Some ask because they think they dont know it!

Some ask because they really want to know it!

Some ask because there’s nothing really they can do, other than that!

Ask it and u will be answered ๐Ÿ™‚

But for that the question need to be genuine!

that makes the answer one! ๐Ÿ™‚

Love , Peace , Blessings!


Swapnil ๐Ÿ™‚
