Shiva Maha Purana states that Preaching enables devotees to achieve their desires without facing any danger. There is no doubt that those who preach and recite Lord Shivas thousand names will have no misery at all even in dreams. Besides, manifest all the desires and also inspires devotion to Lord Shiva. These statements are by the Lord himself in Shiva Maha Purana. One method of worship of Lord Shiva is to offer milk, water and Panchamrit but the ‘Bilva Leaves’ are believed a must have element to please Lord Shiva. One must worship to ask forgiveness for all sins and also ask him to forgive if the worship is devoid of the requisite materials. According to Shiva Maha Purana “Om Namah Shivaya” is the greatest mantra. Besides, there are several other Mantras of Lord Shiva including Maha Mrityunjaya Mantras which is primarily known as life saving mantra. Lord shiva is bigger than the biggest and smaller than the smallest. That's why is Shiva. Shiva stands for destruction of distress and one who gives abundant learning and wealth. The word ‘Shiva’ controls everything and whom none can control. ‘SH’ means Permanent bliss. ‘I’ means Purusha. ‘va’ means Sakti (which is primarily known as female energy). So chant Om Namah Shivaya and other Shiva mantras during Pooja, Japa , dhyana, homa and while smearing vibhuti and you will be immensely blessed.
Om Namah Shivaya Om Namah Shivaya Om Namah Shivaya !! Jai Bholenath! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

When things go wrong, when you feel everything is falling apart, it could actually be falling together

When things go wrong, when you feel everything is falling apart, it could actually be falling together. ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒฟ Namaste Beautiful Souls, it's time for Friday Inspiration ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒธ Yes, Consider that what’s in front of you may be serving you in valuable ways you don’t even understand right now. Remember sometimes you have to die a little on the inside first in order to be reborn and rise again as a stronger person. People and circumstances will occasionally break you down. But if you keep your mind focused, your heart open to love, and continue to put one foot in front of the other, you can recover the pieces, rebuild, and come back much stronger and happier than you ever would have been otherwise. Fully accept the reality of what is. If you are guilty, confess it. You cannot find peace by avoiding things. Take every change and experience as a challenge for growth. Either it will give you what you want or it will teach you what the next step is. Stay positive. Stay calm. Finding peace and happiness in life does not mean to be in a place where there are no challenges. It means to be in the midst of those things while remaining calm in your heart. It’s about letting go of the pictures in your head about how things were supposed to be and accept what ever is. Draw close to Shiva. He has given you free will and wise head over your shoulders. You can do any action in any way you like. You can become a Saint by right thinking and right action. Or you can become evil. You can either choose to become bold and strong, or you can choose to be a loser. You have a free will of your own. Therefore overcome all your unfavourable circumstances. Have courage. Knowthat You will succeed. There is nothing in the world which cannot be achieved by a person by the right sort of efforts. Wake up now! Purify, Concentrate, Meditate, Visit Shiva mandir, perform Rudraabhishek, and You will realise your goal. Fear is just in the mind. As you think so you become. Think you are bold, and strong you will become. You have all that power, Draw strength from within. Life is a series of challenges and awakenings. Conquer the mind and the senses. Fight against the evil forces, through Japa and meditation. Pray to God, no matter what. Detach yourself from material things and let go of expectations. Letting go of needless expectations is your first step to happiness. Have a mindset of peace and acceptance, and you can deal with almost anything and grow beyond it. And yes, Remind yourself that everything in life is temporary. So if things are good right now, enjoy it. It won’t last forever. If things are bad, don’t worry because it won’t last forever either!! Love, Light & Gratitude ~ Om Namah Shivaya ~ Boom Shankar !

THEY ALWAYS FIND EACH OTHER

THEY ALWAYS FIND EACH OTHER
One sure mark of Shiva, is that He is bound to Parvati. It is said of Shiva that He does not incarnate. Of Parvati's bhakti (devotion), it is said She is one who can make even Shiva incarnate.
He is Timeless, and yet when Parvati manifests, it is time for Shiva to arrive. He is formless, but when She arrives, He manifests form. She is His eternal soulmate, and they always find each other, through the mists of cosmic time, even through lifetimes; such is the magic of their love! For it is said, Parvati is His wife even from Her previous birth, when She was called Sati.
And I realised that behind the innumerable tales about Him,
at the core of the myriad roles that He plays out, Shiva's story,
is essentially a love story, over and over again.

Are you Hurting Life?-1

Are you Hurting Life?-1
Let me begin from the beginning, with a story from the life of Buddha, the Buddha, who was once known as prince Siddhartha before he renounced the material world.
Siddhartha and his cousin Devadutta planned to spend a day in the woods, resting under shady trees, playing in the pond and getting pampered by attendants and maids. A royal entourage was arranged for their comfort and safety. Devadutta also carried his bow and arrow even though they had agreed to not hunt.
While they lay near a natural pool, a swan landed nearby. Seeing golden opportunity, Devadutta immediately strung his bow and aimed at the bird. Siddhartha tried to stop him but he was adamant. A few moments passed and upon hearing the commotion the swan took flight. Devadutta was a good archer (unfortunately) and he let loose his arrow that found its target. Seeing the bird fall, Siddhartha leapt to it in quick strides.
Miraculously, the swan was still alive. But, it was going limp as life was fleeing out of the poor bird. Its eyes were closing, its wound was bloody. Gently, the prince pulled out the arrow and squeezed cool juice of some leaves on the wound to stop it from bleeding. He called one of the physicians in the entourage and applied medicinal herbs on the swan with his tender hands.
The frightened bird began to feel at ease as it slightly fluttered its wings. It was in much pain to fly away though. It lay there resting in Siddhartha’s delicate hands. Devadutta didn’t take it too kindly and felt robbed of his game.
“Give it to me!” he said to Siddhartha. “I shot it.”
“No way, Devadutta,” the prince replied. “I saved it.”
“That’s ridiculous,” he yelled. “It’s my bird, I brought it down with my arrows.”
“Had you killed it, it would have been yours,” Siddhartha said snuggling the swan, “But, since it’s alive, it belongs to me.”
When the argument couldn’t be settled, they consulted one of the king’s ministers who was a member of the royal escort and accompanied them presently. He suggested that a hermit lived in the woods nearby who was in a better position to give a verdict on the current matter. As was the custom, they took offerings of fruits and flowers, bowed before the sage and presented their case.
“There is no confusion,” the sage concluded. “A life belongs to the one who tries to save it. It cannot belong to the one who hurts it.”
“Therefore,” he added, “the swan belongs to Siddhartha.”
It’s a simple story, but then again wisdom lives in simplicity. In fact, it only lives in simplicity. Wise people are simple people. Personally, I find that the ultimate wisdom required to lead a beautiful life, a fulfilling and meaningful life is shining majestically like a crowned jewel in our story. Here, in one sentence:
Life belongs to those who love it.

How to Handle Ego?

How to Handle Ego?
If you find that there is ego, then let it be. Even ego belongs to the divine. Don’t try to surrender, don’t struggle. If you say that I have surrendered my ego, then it is bigger ego. It’s like saying, "I am the most humble person in this entire world!" That doesn’t show humility. Just be Natural.
The more you grow in knowledge, you see that ego goes away. You know, around the seed there is a membrane. When you soak it in water, the seed bulges, sprouts and automatically the membrane breaks away. But if you try to peel the skin, the seed itself will break. Same way, when you soak yourself in knowledge, in devotion, in love, and in wisdom, you automatically find the ego going away.
=======================
It’s easy to give up things in anger and in frustration, but letting go with a fullness of contentment and happiness is a skill.
=======================
Q: What can we possibly give you as a gift on your birthday? You have everything already.
Guruji: I need many pillars of knowledge. I want you to really live the knowledge and also work to see that more and more people come onto the path of knowledge. There are a number of things you can do.
You can be a part of spreading Yoga and Ayurveda throughout the country. There are many many such seva initiatives and a number of activities you can be a part of. Or you can also be a part of improving anything here in the Ashram. You can mention your ideas and suggestions.
=======================
Q: How would you define full maturity in a human being?
Guruji: A smile that does not wither away, a confidence that doesn’t get shaken, a compassion that never dies down and a youthfulness of spirit which is alive all the time would define it for me.
=======================
Often we hear people complaining, “Oh, no one understands me”. I tell you, the real problem is that you have not learnt to express yourself properly. You have not been able to make others understand. This is the essence.
