APPROACHING THE GURU : 2.


Part-2.

Here I can tell you one or two incidents in the life, of some Sadhaks who went to do what Swamiji had not told them to do.

In those days (1924-34) while Swamiji was living in Swargashram, there was a Sannyasi-disciple by name Swami V. Without the instructions of Swamiji he began to practise Hatha Yogic Kriyas.

He was doing Vastra Dhauti.

 He began to complain that Swamiji did not give him a bottle of ghee (clarified butter) while his throat was bruised owing to the Kriyas.

He went on abusing Swamiji. Mind you, it was a time when Swamiji himself was living on Kshetra food (alms).

Who asked the disciple to perform the Kriyas?

 Without procuring a bottle of ghee first, why should he start doing the Kriyas?

Sivanandaji never asked him to do so.

Had Swami V. surrendered his individuality to Swamiji, the latter would have guided him correctly, and put him on an easy path.

This the disciple never cared to do.

He had his own individual ideas about spirituality and never gave a chance to Swami Sivananda, his Guru, to mould him.

And as a consequence he had to suffer for having followed a wrong path without being instructed by the Guru.

Ref : Rajinikanth not Fit for Politics says Subramanian Swamy


1.

The most expected celebrity to come into politics for the past 20 years is Rajinikanth. Sometimes his speech against certain political leaders gives us a hint of his political venture. But he constantly denies the fact.

2.

Recently BJP party member Subramanian Swamy made a controversial statement about Rajinikanth.

3.

'Rajini is not a stable person, so he is not fit to come in to politics' is the statement given by him. This made Rajini fans to go pissed off.


Note :
1. In the past many persons from cinema industry( in Bharatham as whole ) mainly actors joined politics and miserably failed to perform.
2. In the case Tamil Nadu, where people are mad about Cinema and actors, do not use their intellect to analyse a person.
3. Majority in Tamil Nadu are blind followers  of anything and anybody, without using their sense of knowledge.

LORD SRI RAMA THE APOTHEOSIS OF HUMAN PERFECTION-1.

LORD SRI RAMA  THE APOTHEOSIS OF HUMAN PERFECTION-1.

12/02/2018

We observe this auspicious occasion of Sri Ramanavami as a moment of contemplation on a special spark of Divinity that made its advent on the earth.

Popularly speaking, in ancient historical times, to emphasise the historical advent of this great Divinity on earth has been the exoteric side of the Epics as people generally understand it.

This popular emphasis on the incarnations of God on earth has taken the form of Epics like the Ramayana.

We are told in the Ramayana of sage Valmiki, the earliest of these documents, that it was a history par excellence, a history of a chronological procession of divine exploits which is what we generally mean by a divine Epic.

It is believed that the earliest record of the history of Rama, the Ramayana of Valmiki, was written during the life-time of Rama Himself.


It was not a biography written later on after several years. It was composed then and there, by a contemporary of Rama, sage …

Sivananda's Personality-84

27/10/2017

Dr Max Borkman, a Frenchman, called him bon papa, a "good father". But was the Master just another good man? Good men there are many in this world, but they, too, have their flaws. The Master had none. He was immaculate. He was a perfection of virtues. He was a God-man.

The Master was not so much a person in flesh and blood; he was a sacred presence, a pure spiritual radiance.

"The real Swamiji is not just the person you see and hear at Satsang," said Leslie Shephard, an Englishman and an earnest student of Yoga. "The real Swamiji is an uncanny force, affecting you by thought-currents, and moulding your spiritual development, often without a single word being spoken."

The human side of the Master was like the lantern—and a beautiful lantern it was. But within the lantern burned the unquenchable spiritual Light, and it was this Light which radiated through the lantern, not only to those in the immediate vicinity but to the whole world.
