D:I am now very sure that it is futile to look for God outside of myself.
Cguru:Hmm...
D:I am now convinced that God is within me.
Cguru:So,are you sure that God is only within and not outside?
D:Yes.
Cguru:What is within and outside?
D:'Within' means hidden behind 'my mind' and 'outside' means the 'world ' that i see and interact with in my waking state.
Cguru:Is the world apart from your mind?
D:No,it is not apart from my mind.
Cguru:So,it is not outside of you!
D:It seems that it is not outside of myself.
Cguru:So you need to take into account only the two-yourself and God.
D:Yes.
Cguru:Are you in God or is God in you?
D:!!!
Cguru:God alone is.God alone has become the universe and all Living beings.

One day cguru was sitting under the banyan tree with one hand closed and another hand open.

The disciple said:
d: What does that closed hand signify?
cguru: I am trying to capture space.

d: What does that open hand signify?
cguru: I am trying to release space.

d: Were you able to capture space?
cguru: Can space be captured?

d: Were you able to release space?
cguru: How can you release something which cannot be captured?

d: Then?
cguru: In the junction of this trying one discovers one's relationship with space.

d: I did not understand.
cguru: Don't say that. Say, did I not understand?

d: Still it is confusing.
cguru: Don't say that. Say, Is it not fusing?

d: What?
cguru: That.

d: I find no point in pursuing this conversation.
cguru: The best course therefore is to remain silent.

cguru was moving around the banyan tree ashram to see the different types of disciples. He came across one disciple who was sitting under a tree.

cguru: Why are you just sitting?
d: I am observing divine lila.

cguru: How?
d: I am waiting for god to give me food. I am waiting for god to give me clothes. I am waiting for god to give me meditation.

cguru: So what is your overall view?
d: Everything is divine lila and we wait for god.

cguru then moved to another disciple who was running about.

cguru: Why are you running about?
d: I am observing divine lila.

cguru: How?
d: I am running to give food to god (as puja offering). I am running to give clothes to god. I am running to give meditation to god.

cguru: So what is your overall view?
d: Everything is divine lila and god waits for us.

silentgreen,
you may like to be introduced to Swami Bananananda!
Swami Bananananda lives in the high branches of the tallest mangrove tree in the Sunderbans Tiger Preserve of the Gangetic delta. He is considered to be a partial manifestation (less than 5% by weight) of Lord Rama's great devotee Hanumanji.

Here is an excerpt from an article featuring our Swami bananandaji:

Q: If you don't mind my asking, Swami, when did you first realize that you were an incarnation of Hanumanji?
A: The first sign, I believe, appeared when I was about three years old. My grandfather used to wear a pair of glasses with bright shiny gold wire rims. One day I sneaked up behind him, jumped on his head, grabbed the glasses and scampered off to hide under the kitchen table. Then when I was about seven I took to climbing to the top of the dining room hutch and throwing peanut shells down into my aunt's plate of dal. A couple of years later during monsoon season I insisted on trying to jump over every puddle I saw in the road, no matter how big it might be. By then we had pretty much figured it out. If you dig deeply into our hole-y books, you'll find that all the signs and symptoms described for a manifestation were in evidence. But enough about me?it is merely a fiery monkey's tale. I thought you had some questions.

Excerpted from 'Global Vedanta' magazine,Fall 2009 edition-Good articles are featured in this edition -Swami Damodarananda of R K Mutt reminiscing on his meeting with Sri Bhagavan and other articles .

Namaskar

d: I have one doubt.

cguru: What?

d: Who is posting in this forum?

cguru: Sometimes it is difficult to answer your question.

Received this witty message and sharing the same:

Chhoti si fish🐟 ne Apni Maa se Poocha : Hum Paani mein kyon rehte hai, zameen pe kyon nahi rehte ?

Mummy Fish sweetly replied: Hum Fish hai isliye Paani mein rehte hain, Zameen par to sab "selfish" rehte hain !!!

Old Age:: Has Money & Time - But No Energy.

Hearing of cguru, one day a man came to get a name for his baby girl. cguru was sitting under the banyan tree. A short trident was planted on the ground beside him.

man: Maharaj, I came to get a name for my baby girl.

cguru: (After some pause) There is a name.

man: Maharaj, then please bestow that.

cguru: (Looking at the trident) The name is not common.

man: Maharaj, the girl is also not common. She is special, very beautiful and tender.

cguru: (Running his hands over the vertical part of the trident)  The name is not of this world.

man: Maharaj, same is the case with the girl. Her parents love her so much that her feet does not touch this world.

cguru: (Running his hands over the curved part of the trident) The name connects to place far off.

man: Maharaj, same is the case with the girl. Her mother says that she feels a cord connect her with the baby. Her relatives say that they hear her anklets from their houses far off.

cguru: (Now examining the sharpness of the trident) The name once taken must be given.

man: Maharaj, that is why I came here from so far.

cguru: (Looking upwards where the trident is pointing) This should be the only name.

man: Maharaj, after getting a name from your holy being, what need is there for me for other names?

... continued

cguru: Then receive the first part of the name.

The man took some flowers on his palm and placed the palm reverentially before cguru. He saw the face of his baby girl on his palm; smiling and adorned with many small jewellery.

cguru wrote the name and dropped it over his palm. Immediately the flowers flew off and got scattered over the ground. The man became confused with this omen and looked around. Then he looked at the name. The name written was "Mrityu".

The man was shocked. He said: Did I come here to receive a name or a curse? Then pressing both his ears with his hands and chanting "Hari", "Hari", he turned away and started walking. Immediately the trident got uprooted automatically from the ground and started following the man in the sky over his head. Seeing the trident in the sky above his head the man was confounded. He increased the pace of his walk. But the trident did not leave him and continued to follow. The man felt that the trident will follow him till his house and then harm the girl. This is because he has not kept his promise of giving the name. He thought: Where has fate brought me today? What have I done to deserve this? And how can I give such a name to my girl and spoil her life? The only she must have.

Being confounded by the turn of events, the man turned back and returned to cguru, as if by a force. His exuberance had died down. He thoughts have also subsided, and he was in a state of surrender to the fate.

... to be continued
Homage to the Universal Being...Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ...

The man returned to cguru and said:
man: Maharaj, please bestow the full name.

cguru wrote the full name and again dropped it on his palm. Now the flowers which flew off returned to his palm. The uprooted trident came back and got planted again. The man looked around and observed all this. His mind was not in a position to analyze things. He looked over the sky and looked at the ground. And finally looked at his palm. He saw the face of his baby girl. Beneath that was written the name - "Mrityunjayi".
Homage to the Universal Being...Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ...

Silentgreen,
Cguru is always entertaining and educative...seems to have the flavour Of the Tales and Parables of Sri Ramakrishna..ha ha...Half knowledge of anything  leads to confusion and Fear.

Strangely I received a Whats app message on the very same day...and am copying it here:

Admin : Adding Laxmi to the group.

Vivek : Hi Laxmi welcome to the group.

Laxmi : Hi guys am new to the city

Venu : Hi Laxmi dont worry , am there...any problems i will be the solution

Rajan : Hi Laxmi.. tell me if you have any  problem, will arrange a solution for u

Vijay : Hi Laxmi, if you need anything tell me, it will be arranged.

Ratan : Hi Laxmi mera bhai Hyderabad me hee hai , koi bhi problem ho i will manage it for you..

Laxmi : Thanx guys for your support

Ratan : Laxmi whats your full name..

Laxmi : Laxminarayan Rao.

Venu left

Ratan left

Vijay left

Rajan left

Admin left...

Laxmi is the admin now!(Admin of the Whats App group and only member)
