Pearls from Gurgaon Shivir - 2


  • ~ Evil energies are hidden in alcohol.
  • ~ Give your children the wisdom and show them the way. You be the example. If you yourself drink alcohol and tell your children to refrain from it, how will they understand? 
  • ~ Little children are our future.  Let them not move towards this intoxication but towards being intoxicated in God. 
  • ~ Do Mati Ki Chowki and give Prasad.  Till now you must have given a lot of parties and satisfied the asuras, now call on the Divine Mother and make Shiv-Shiva contended.
  • ~ Mata Ki Chowki is the remedy for clearing all types of doshas and your homes will become a divine place where only auspicious tasks will be done.
  • ~ Quarrels that happen without any meaning and people wonder why they fight without intending to fight which was because you were deviating from God, deviating from your inner self. If you really want power and peace connect with your inner self, become one with God.
  • ~ Powers do not come from outside, but from within. 
  • ~ After Mata Ki Chowki, everyone sit down and do Durga Saptshati in a simple way. Simple means without involving all the beginning mantras and shaapo-dwar, but directly beginning with the Siddha-Kunjika stotram and then chapters 1 to 13. 
  • ~ It is Mother’s blessings itself that in such a short span this beautiful book of Navratri Shakti Sadhna manifested. I bless the sadhak from Hyderabad who took quick notes, sent materials through the cell phone and in 24 hours 10,000 books were printed. 
  • ~ You will be receiving higher deeksha of this higher Durga Saptshati Sadhana in this shivir. 
  • ~ When you offer Mother food (bhog), do not fall much into rituals of sprinkling water and acts of the kind, but bring in your deepest bhaav (emotions and feelings) and with loving persistence offer the bhog.  Then, the food that was offered to the Mother, mix it into the bhandara (food for the gathering).  Then feed lovingly all those who are attending the satsang. 
  • ~ The biggest merit you gain is from feeding the hungry, the poor. Rise above caste and creed. 
  • ~ No one is big, no one is small. When God does not differentiate why do you? 
  • ~ Whenever you have something auspicious at home, do Mata Ki Chowki in this manner and offer the blessed food to all. 
  • ~ In this way, Mother’s bhajan, Shiva’s bhajan, Krishna’s bhajan – start doing their chowkis. Trust me, as you keep doing this, in a year’s time if you do not see the changes in growth and prosperity, then you can say “Babaji, you did not say the right thing.”
  • ~ And when someone would ask you the secret of your success, then you share with them too that they too do Mata Ki Chowki in their homes in the prescribed manner with whatever best bhaav they can. You will see only blessings showering.
  • ~ As you do ShivYog Sadhna, your outer vision starts changing. Vision then gets fixed on the Divine. Then one understands that everyone is the same.
  • ~ Do this practically within the family and see. After doing Durga Sapshati sadhna, look into the eyes of the family member who you feel is negative. As your look deepens, you will start seeing God.  Why just humans, even you will see the same in an animal's eyes too.  If not a family member, do the same in the mirror. You will gradually begin to see the real You.
  • ~ Whoever one may be, however mightly one may be, when one does sadhna and goes deeper and deeper, one will start seeing.
  • ~ Every ShivYog sadhak must rise above the 'I'ness.
  • ~ I was rapidly giving Shree Vidhya deekshas and people were rapidly evolving, but in the process I forgot that with the rise of energies, also were active the "madhu-Kaitabh" (madhu demon of craving for praise and attention and kaitabh - demon of reaction to criticism)
  • ~ Durga Sapshati has to be done first to purify. I won't back off from my promise for intensive sadhna but first you have to clean your consciousness and clean your sankalp shakti so that you don't create anything wrong for yourself.
  • ~ If you have to get something higher you have to first become worthy for it because until this is clear, your vessel will remain small and how much ever blessing are put into it, you will waste it.
  • ~ My intention and aim is that you evolve and self-realize in this lifetime itself.

  • ~ Durga Saptshati intensives are being organized in our ashrams. Only those who are sadhaks (true sadhaks) should go the ashrams and do the sadhna, if not, please do it at home itself.
  • ~ In ashram all kind of people are there - of all castes - all tittles - king to pauper, but when you enter ShivYog ashram, you have only one caste or religion - you merge and become Shivananda!
  • ~ In the 6-day Durga Sapshati intensives, all you will have to do is get your own asanas. No cook. You will have to cook together, eat together and spend time in the ashram doing these intensives.  After a week, when you leave, you will notice that you have changed. As you change your fortune changes.
  • ~ Play Mata Ki Chowki at all times and you will see the mind becoming purer.
  • ~ I see sadhaks always worrying more about their loved ones. They feel depressed when their loved ones are depressed. They show me their photos on the cellphones..... Baba doesn't need to see photos because Baba has some advance technology to se the pictures that you have already created in your mind. When you think of them I have already seen them. I would just pray to the ever-compassionate Mother to bless them. I don't do anything then but Mother takes care of them.
  • ~ A true disciple will never expect anything from anyone but will take only from Him (pointing up).  If a beggar begs from another beggar then both beggars will remain hungry.
  • ~ A sufi saint once went to the king to beg. When he entered the King was in prayers on his knees with his hands extended up. He was praying to God to safeguard his palace, to prosper the kingdom, make him a good king, and so on. The sufi saint watched him for a moment and then turned and walked away. The king saw this and approached him, "I was in prayer, please let me know how may I help you. You may ask for whatever you want." To this the saint replied, "I had come to you with a lot of expectation but you also turned out to be a beggar. What can a beggar give a beggar? I will ask from Him itself."
  • ~ My Guru blessed me at the age of 8 and made me rich with the blessing of the name (mantra)... Babaji sings Swasadi maala nal simran mai tera naam.
  • ~ Learn from the birds about detachment. The birds look after their young ones till they are able to fly and protect themselves. Once they fly they don't remain attached to each other.
  • ~ Some moments of the Mother's blessings can enhance so many lifetimes and you are sitting here for so long. Only the one who receives it will know.
  • ~ Man's foremost weakness is to listen to one's own praise. Man strives to gather and buy so many things just because of that expectation of praise.
  • ~ Second main weakness is when someone criticizes, one is then bent upon finding ways to bring that person down in some or the other way. These both are the asuras of madhu and kaitabh (madhu - the demon of expectation of praise and glorification and the kaitabh - the demon of reaction on criticism.)
  • ~ Someone comes to you and says, "Uncle/aunty, you are sooooo good!" The madhu becomes active. Now, the person says, "Uncle/aunty, that person is bad and said so and so about you..." and you run to bring that person down. You are not running but it is the kaitabh within you
  • ~ Whenever you get tempted to do something to get attention or praise (or self-glorification) or to take credit for someone's work, take the Mother's name.
  • ~ If someone complains to you about someone and you begin to even harbor negative thoughts about harming them in any way, immediately take Mother's shelter and pray.
  • ~ When Baba asks "Tum chahthe kya ho?" (what is it that you want) bring the bhaav of the desire to become pure, to sperad love, to help all, serve all, to pray for everyone to be blessed... But then, instead of continuing to maintain this bhaav at all times, you deviate from teh main goal and fall into all these ignorance and create your own downfall.
  • ~ Those in Mother's shelter cannot be touched by Maya.
  • ~ Whose mind is always pure cannot be defeated, cannot be miserable or have troubles.
  • ~ Everywhere you see around including the television, you will see Madhu-Kaitabh.
  • ~ Why are you seeking outside oh Shivyogis? No remedies are outside.. they are not in rings and anushtaans (observance of a ritualistic practice). Until you are lit from within, no external remedies will help. If you ever want to do an anushtaan, light a lamp in your heart.
  • ~ What does man do? Wake up in the morning, eat breakfast adn go out in quest of fulfilment, eat lunch and then dinner and then sleep.  Same things an animal does. But now-a-days, it has worsened more than the pashu bhaav (animalistic tendencies).... Get up in the morning, check the stock market, read the newspaper, eat fast foods and junk food, in the evening settle down for drinks. None of the animals do these.  Neither do they worry about stocks, not they eat junk food, nor you will find any animal in the gutter (drunk). Life is disgracing worse than animals.
  • ~ Attitude of gratitude must prevail if you want a good life.  You get a payment or some thing and you say 'thanks' but how many times have to said thanks to God, who has given you so much - body, life, family, everything!
