Day of Satsang with Yantra and Lisa

“‘The day of Satsang with Yantra and Lisa’ – Such a blessed meeting. Such a deeply silent, opening, revealing and enriching retreat.
All who gathered here experienced the blessing, the richness and the depth of silence that was offered through this coming together.

Version 2

As you are aware both Lisa and I have been offering Satsang individually over many many years. During these years neither of us have offered in this way together or with another. Our willingness to be here as we are, to say yes, to serve this love, this silence, to be used in service to This. What a blessing in this life time that we get to sit together in silence, sharing and confirming this that is true, this that is always here, this that cannot be touched, changed or tainted by any arising of form – body, mind, emotion, or circumstance.

Version 2

Such a wonderful witnessing of the beloveds present, revealing the truth of themselves to themselves, the silent recognition of the self, the confirming of what is true, and reflecting the truth to each other that is our own self. This that is inclusive of all the flavours that show up in this lifetime.

Version 2

Such a profound blessing that the silent strength of Arunachala, Ramana’s silence and Papaji’s grace can be palpably felt. It is all Ramana’s stillness and Papaji’s grace, bringing beloveds together, opening them to the truth, the words that come through us, through Lisa and myself are the words of this grace and silence. This blessing is unspeakable. In gratitude and awe, I continue to fall ever deeper in this love with the beloved who has no face, and bow at the feet of the one who has no feet.

 

Version 2


Face of the beloved
Oh joyous discovery
this silence of self –
This that is nothing at all .
Touched so deeply
in this fathomless silence
the discovery of All.
Who is this that is here?
No-one – no-where!
Nothing at all.
What is this that is revealed?
Oh the joyous endless discovery of Nothing
revealing the true face of the beloved
again and again,
once only
and for – All!
~ Yantra-ji

May we always meet as this one self ~ Namaste Yantra-ji “

“We are so blessed to have the opportunity in this lifetime to sit in silence, to reflect, to inquire into the nature of truth and Self. Come home to yourself ! Who you really are at the core, in this very moment, is this that has always been here, this that always Is, the silent unchanging awareness” – Namaste Yantra-ji

Version 2

The mind is nothing

There is a directness that gets spoken through this form in Satsang, even more direct so it would seem in the recent private Satsang offerings. The most recent very profound and direct conversation was about the mind being nothing. It was strong and intense, direct and clear – This fire of Papaji roaring, the fire of no compromise, the fire of Truth, the fire of fearlessness, the fire of freedom. This is the fire that is blazing here always. Lets be clear – the mind is nothing, the repetition of meaningless thoughts is nothing, it is like shit, of no value, nothing to be concerned with, nothing worth engaging with, nothing worth entertaining – just nothing – and here where you are, here is everything!

I was blessed after this on the same day to view a short you-tube clip of the beloved teacher Mooji titled – “Master Pointing #2: It’s Nothing Nothing Nothing!”. – ( click here to view)

Yes the truth really is so simple – This was the very same conversation I had had with the beloved in the private Satsang this same day and then here it was again – the same truth being reflected by beloved Mooji – in the same words – the mind is nothing – it is like serving up shit – it is nothing – Ahhh the directness of the words flowing from consciousness.

Beloved Mooji says  “Your Mantra from Sri Mooji today: It’s Nothing Nothing Nothing! This is something that is not a practice. It’s a nothing practice that gives you nothing and leaves you as everything – empty, joyful, complete. This is my offering to you today. Namaste. Enjoy a little.”

 In Gratitude I bow to this, this joyful nothing that is all – join us in Satsang as we experience the truth of this together

Staying True to this

 

Staying True to This

So many people both in spiritual circles and in Satsang will say that they know who they are, that they have experienced the boundless, spacious, presence of their own Self, pure essence, the true being, Truth itself, what Papaji referred to as ‘That’ and what I often refer to as This – yet they are often disturbed by the questions that continue to arise – How do I stay here? How do I free myself of the mind? What do I need to do in order to stay true?

Whenever you are immersed in compulsive thinking,
you are avoiding what is.
You don’t want to be where you are: Here, Now.
When the mind is quiet,
All is Self. ~ Papaji

When we love our ego more that the truth, we feel caught, trapped, tricked, at the mercy of life, the mind, thoughts, feelings, sensations and emotions. We feel that there is something wrong with ‘us’, we believe that we are a ‘someone’ with something wrong, that there is something wrong with what is occurring and that something needs to be done – either to fix or heal ourselves ( the somebody ), or to change the situation or circumstances, in order to be whole, in order to be free, in order to find peace ( in order to be a whole somebody, a free somebody, a peaceful somebody.)

“You are the Unchangeable Awareness in which all activity takes place.
Always rest in peace.
You are eternal Being, unbounded and undivided.
Just keep Quiet. All is well. Keep Quiet Here and Now.
You are Happiness, you are Peace, you are Freedom.
Do not entertain any notions that you are in trouble.
Be kind to yourself. Open to your Heart and simply Be.
Those who know This know Everything.
If not, even the most learned know nothing at all.
” ~ Papaji

Satsang offers the opportunity to inquire truthfully into what is here, what is being spoken, and where your attention really is. To inquire into who this ‘someone’ or ‘somebody’ that you believe is real, really is. You ask the question what do you really want? – and you find out what is true – are you willing to give up everything? Are you willing to be no-one, no-body? Are you willing to surrender to this that is unknown? Are you willing to give everything to this that you say you want?
“Question: How to stop Thinking?
Papaji: By Being! (giggles) When you think that you are an object, a person, a body, or some other idea, but by Being there is nothing! Just Being. And Being is already there. You are always Being. To become something you must meditate and perform some mantra, ritual, practice. Just to Be is simple. Without Being you can’t do any practice.So don’t think of anything else. Just Be! It is so easy to Be.
Question: But when I try to just be, so much thinking happens. I am sure everyone has this problem.
Papaji: Thinking happens when you want to become something. Then you must think. But to not become something what is there to do? Stay as you are! Be as you are in whatever circumstances, just always Be, It doesn’t need any practice. Whatever you get by practice you will lose, but Being will never be lost because you will not get it by any experience or practice. It simply is, Simply Be. Don’t stir your mind in Being, don’t think and don’t make effort. I will tell you how to be Being itself. No effort, no thinking. Avoid thinking and av
oid not thinking. What is between these two? ” ~ Papaji

When we love truth more than feeling safe and secure, when we love truth more than the known and predictable, when we love truth more than being in control, or right, or loved, when we are willing to be here un-moving as we are, warts and all, in this human existence, then there is the possibility to truthfully see what is untouched, what is un-moving, to see what and who you really are. ‘Who am I’ ? Who I am – no longer is a mental question, it is a deepening of truthful discovery.

In the willingness to speak the truth, and in the willingness to commit to the truth of your own fresh discovery, you deepen in This, you find the peace, stillness and serenity that you have been looking for all along – you discover who you ARE is THIS – and you discover the effortlessness of Staying True to THIS .

Join us for an evening of Self Inquiry.
All love

Version 2

Discernment – the choice to be True

We have reasons for everything. Reasons to do or not do, to come, to stay, to leave, to partake … on and on… Reasons for what or who can we trust, how something needs to be done or not done, what is in our best interest, how we will benefit or loose. We may weigh the different options, ask for others opinions, or go it alone – it is as though the decision making process itself seems fixed, or occurs naturally and it is a process we are used to trusting. Usually the reasons and decisions themselves seem as though they are being made by us, in our best interest. We never really question what this means, or if it is actually true.

If we were to ask any question about the reasons for our decisions, we would usually find our self being encouraged to ask or uncover what the driver of these decisions might be, in order to determine whether they are healthy or supportive for us or not. Then the same process of weighing our options, asking others for opinions or going it alone occurs again – and again we are at the mercy of life or so it seems.

What if we were to ask a different question?

What if you ask yourself ‘Where do these reasons and decisions actually arise’? When this is investigated what do you discover? We can then ask the question ‘Is this that they are arising from to be trusted‘? This questioning and unveiling is discernment – to discern what is actually true.

When this is truthfully investigated we find that all reasons and decisions come from the mind – even if you have a gut knowing or an instinctual awareness or any other sensation that gives rise to the decision making, it is all being filtered through the mind – which goes through its familiar process of weighing the different options, asking for others opinions, or going it alone.

Have you ever asked whether the mind that gives rise to these reasons and decisions is actually trustworthy? We have always thought the mind ( especially our own mind ) to be trustworthy, but is it really. What is the mind in service to? What is the mind making decisions for? What is the mind protecting?

What if you were to investigate this … what do you discover ?… Here lies the discernment to touch nothing of the mind and discover what is deeper, untouched, and true regardless of any mind, thought, decision, feeling, action, experience. Then there is an opening to the possibility to be true to this discovery – this that is always here, this that is neither arising or falling away, this that needs no protection, this that requires no mental activity – This, where the peace of you resides.

From discernment you then discover the choice to be True is effortless.

Crazy little thing called ‘love’

‘The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you,
not knowing how blind that was.
Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere,
they’re in each other all along.’ ~ From Essential Rumi – by Coleman Barks

Often when people are having an issue with love, I find the line from Queen’s song goes through my mind – ‘a crazy little thing called love’ – it seems that this question about love is arising again, so what is this Crazy little thing called ‘LOVE’?

First let us take a look at the song lyrics from Queen’s ‘Crazy little thing called Love’ …..
….”This thing called love, I just can’t handle it,  I must get round to it, I ain’t ready, Crazy little thing called love.
This (This Thing) called love (Called Love), It cries (Like a baby), In a cradle, all night, It swings (Woo Woo,) It jives (Woo Woo), It shakes all over, like a jelly fish, I kinda like it, Crazy little thing called love
There goes my baby, She knows how to Rock n’ roll, She drives me crazy, She gives me hot and cold fever, Then she leaves me in a cool cool sweat.
I gotta be cool relax, get hip, Get on my track’s, Take a back seat, hitch-hike, And take a long ride on my motor bike
Until I’m ready, Crazy little thing called love.
This thing called love, I just can’t handle it,  I must get round to it, I ain’t ready, Crazy little thing called love….”

So, how do you feel about love? Is love this crazy thing that you cant handle? Is love this thing that seems just out of reach? Does love have you feel out if control, or makes you want to control others. Is love illusive, overbearing, nonexistent?

What is it that you are defining love as – a thought, an emotion, a sensation, an action, a behaviour, a set of circumstances?
Where do you look for love? do you lo
ok to the mind to your thoughts and fantasies, dreams and desires?

Is love this crazy mental activity swinging from one thought to the next, needing, wanting, pleasing, pleading, doing, yearning, longing, planning, imagining? When we stay still, if we just stay here, we discover there is no future, there is no past, there is no suffering with mental activity – then where is love? Rather than love being crazy, you discover what is ‘crazy’ is defining love through the activity of mind and thoughts.

Where do you look for love? do you look to the emotions, to the feelings, to your emotive responses that stem from your fantasies, hopes, dreams and desires? The emotions, where do they arise? Notice how emotions are always arising and falling, changing in intensity and quality, changing name and form. Is love this roller coaster of crazy emotions, elation, deflation, happiness, misery,  satisfaction, dissatisfaction, ecstasy, devastation?

Are all of these fluctuating emotions that are arising in the mind and body really love? What if you were to stay still and not grasp any emotion, any feeling no matter how painful or pleasurable – what is discovered – what then and where is love? Rather than love being crazy, you discover what is ‘crazy’ is defining love through the highs and lows of emotional response.

Where do you look for love? do you look to the sensations in the body, to the arousal filtered through your thoughts and fantasies, dreams and desires? Are the physical sensations of attraction, repulsion, pleasure, arousal, really love?

Is love really the physical sensations of pleasure and pain, of arousal, attraction, repulsion, this that makes you sweat and shake and want to get on your bike to run towards or away from love? is this really love – or is it sensuality, sexuality, attraction, desire, lust, need? Rather than love being crazy, you discover what is ‘crazy’ is defining love through the bodily sensations and physical responses.

Where else do you look for love – in circumstances, events, relationships? Where in your life are you feeling like you cant handle love? What is it about love that there is to handle?  Where are you wishing that you could just get around to love or or wish the other person would get around to it? Rather than love being crazy, you discover what is ‘crazy’ is defining love through circumstances or events, through any relationships or lack of them.

Where else do you look for love – When we entertain our thoughts, the mental activity, we swing between the polarities of thought, future and past, pleasure and pain – this is all mind – none of it is love. Love cannot be found in the past – where is the past, the past is gone, the past doesn’t exist – try to find it – where do you have to look for the past? What do you discover?  The past is only ever in your mind. So love cannot be found by looking to the past no matter how delightful memories may be.

What about the future, where do we need to look to find it, where can it be found? it also doesn’t exist, so all of the mental projections, the longings, the fantasies, are all in the mind, they too don’t exist other than in the mind. So love cannot be found in the the past or the future – what about the present, where is it, can you find it? – even the present is illusive moving from the future to past in an instant. Rather than love being crazy, you discover what is ‘crazy’ is defining love through the past or future or through hoping in the present, which instantly becomes past and future again.
What about any of this, has a
nything to do with this crazy little word called ‘love’?

So what is it now that you are defining love as?
If you could no longer look to the mind or thoughts, if you could no longer to the feelings or emotions, if you could no longer look to any of the physical sensations or cues of the body, if you could no longer look to outward circumstances, events or relationships to define love – If you could no longer define love – then what remains – what is really here always, available, free, here, now ?

When you surrender everything you thought was love, just surrender and open innocently to this that is here now, unknown – what is discovered?
This that you are needs no definition, this that you are requires nothing in name or form, this that you are is love itself, this that you are is the beloved, it cannot be named or owned, or given or it is you – this that you have been searching for, recoiling from, desiring, pleading with life for – this with no defining is discovered to be love, this that is free, boundary-less, wordless, emotionless, body-less, sensation-less, thought-free, this is love.

Love is the surrendered grace that is everything in every moment. – what a relief !!  Now how will your life look without all that previous need to define and seek love – wow – what an adventure you are in for with the divine realisation of your own self – hold onto your hats because this crazy little thing called love is you !!!!

In Satsang there is the opportunity to have your Self revealed to your self , to discover this that you are is Love here and now, regardless of what is showing up as this physical experience. Satsang points to the truth, that there is the possibility to know yourself here and now, as you are, with all of the experiences of the arising of form, of body, of mind, of emotions, of appearances, of circumstance, without needing to fix, change, or alter anything, to be at peace, to be free, here and now – as love itself” ~ Namaste Yantra-ji

Version 2

The support of meeting in Satsang

Personal message from Yantra:

“I am often asked the question what do I do? – I offer Satsang, Self inquiry, yet how does one speak of this ?

What do ‘I’ do – the truthful answer is nothing – not nothing as in an idle way, rather nothing as in there is no ‘I’ doing any of the doing. Satsang lives through, moves through, speaks through me, this form, named Yantra. Satsang is this life. How does one describe this that is, what and who we are – we yes all of us – not me – ALL – all one Self.

I am also often asked the question, what is Satsang? and what occurs in Satsang?  When we translate the meaning of the Sanskrit word Satsang , ‘Sat’ is Truth  and ‘Sangha’ is the gathering or meeting together of like minded, like heart-ed individuals – Satsang then is Meeting in Truth, Satsang is Self inquiry – Satsang is the meeting of the Self.
There are many times in each persons day where gatherings and meetings occur, for catch ups, idle chatter, work conferences, family discussions. Satsang offers the opportunity for a different kind of meeting. To really meet one another requires the willingness to be still, the willingness to be silent, the willingness to leave all agenda aside, to discover what is here when only we are here, without any baggage of the assumed self, the assumed identity.

Satsang offers the time and space to come together, to meet together, to have the truth of your own Self confirmed, this that you are, this that is free of story, free of identity, free of me, mine, and I. This that is true, is always, is untouched by ‘Your’ life, ‘My life’, by ‘I’.

There is the opportunity to inquire, to ask questions, to listen, to explore , to sit in stillness, to be absorbed into the silent aware presence of your own Self.  Satsang is the opportunity for support, to be pointed back to what is true, to be reminded of this that has always been here, free, aware, present, as you. Satsang is the opportunity to speak the truth to your self, about what is real, about what is here, about who and what you really are.

Satsang is the fire of the Self, Satsang is the invitation for you to dive into this fire of your own discovery – this that burns every shred of the lie of identification leaving only itself. So many words we use to try to describe this meeting, this that is the Self, this that is silence itself, this that has no words. Satsang is the opportunity to speak of this that is unspeakable, to name this that is unnameable.

Satsang is the blessing of this life to come home to where you have always been, and discover the truth that you have never left.

Satsang is the opportunity to have your Self revealed to your self , to discover this that you are is here and now regardless of what is showing up as this physical experience. Satsang points to the truth that there is the possibility to know yourself here and now, as you are, with all of the experiences of the arising of form, of body, of mind, of emotions, of appearances, of circumstance, without needing to fix, change, or alter anything, to be at peace, to be free, here and now” ~ Namaste Yantra-ji

‘Allowing Space for it All’

What does it mean to disengage from everything you know yourself to be  – whilst there is still the experience of the arising of form, of body, of mind, of emotions, of appearances, of circumstance?

There is the possibility to know yourself here and now, as you are, to be at peace, to be free, allowing space for it all.

At Our recent one-day Satsang retreat ‘Allowing Space for it All’  we had a series of inquiry questions that were very revealing. followed by a period of silence to allow whatever was revealed to percolate. I would like to share this inquiry with you here so that you can investigate this for yourself wherever you are. Whilst these questions were asked and answered with a partner during the retreat, if you don’t have another person to inquire with, these questions could also be asked of yourself on your own.

Find a quiet place where you can be still and silent.

Become aware of why you are here, here in this inquiry. What is it that you really want? Deeper than anything else, what is your  deepest prayer? What stops you from living this prayer, being this prayer now?

Start by Becoming aware of the body, notice the body, the physical sensations, strong or subtle, things you like or don’t like about the body.

What is it that you believe about the body?

What needs to happen with your body in order for you to be free?

When you stop believing anything needs to happen, to be done, changed, be fixed – what is here?

When you allow space for the body, to be as it is, to do what it does, for the sensations to be as they are – what is here?

What is your deepest prayer? What stops you from being this now?

 

Now Become aware of the mind, notice the mind, the thoughts, strong or subtle

What is it that you believe about the mind?

What needs to happen with your mind in order for you to be free?

When you stop believing anything needs to happen, to be done, changed, be fixed – what is here?

When you allow space for the mind to be as it is, to do what it does, for thoughts to come and go – what is here?

What is your deepest prayer? What stops you from being this now?

 

Now Become aware of the emotions, notice the emotions, the feelings strong or subtle, those you like or don’t like

What is it that you believe about the emotions?

What needs to happen with your emotions in order for you to be free?

When you stop believing anything needs to happen, to be done, changed, be fixed – what is here?

When you allow space for the emotions to be as they are, do what they do – what is here?

What is your deepest prayer? What stops you from being this now?

 

Now Become aware of your life circumstances, notice the circumstances, circumstances you like or don’t like

What is it that you believe about your circumstances?

What needs to happen with your circumstances in order for you to be free?

When you stop believing anything needs to happen, to be done, changed, be fixed – what is here?

When you allow space for the life circumstances to be as they are, to show up however they show up – what is here?

What is your deepest prayer? What stops you from being this now?

Become still and silent

What do you notice now about the body, mind, thoughts, sensations, emotions, life circumstances?

When nothing needs to change in order for you to be free what is here?

What is your deepest prayer – can anything stop you from being this now?

There is the possibility to know yourself here and now, as you are, whilst there is still the experience of the arising of form, of body, of mind, of emotions, of appearances, of circumstance, without needing to fix, change, or alter anything, to be at peace, to be free – this that you are allows space for it all ~ Namaste Yantra-ji

Version 2 
“Life occurs here where we are – not where we are not – that is an impossibility.

So where are we?

Here, Now and only ever Here Now!

Even if you are following the story of mind into the future or dwelling in the past, there is still only here. The mind will do what it does. The endless restless mind will continue to create and run its stories, in words, in pictures, in sensations, in feelings, it is all just thought arising in the mind.

You have the choice to follow, to believe, to engage with these stories – and you have the choice to stop!
Stop for just a moment and discover what is here.

When you stop entertaining, believing, following the mind story for even just a moment what is here ?
If you are willing to investigate the truth of this that is arising as the ‘Future’, what is discovered – where is this future?

Where is your attention?

Where are you? 

Where are you really – can you go, be, anywhere other than here?

What is this movement of mind and attention?

What is discovered when you are willing to stop, to stay still, here where you are, as you are?

You find that the future does not exist other than in the mind! When you pay no attention to this arising of an imagined future in the mind, there is only here – here where you already are . There is such freshness, such freedom, such peace, such release in this discovery.

When you are willing to investigate this that is arising as the past what do you discover? 

Where is this past?

Where is your attention?

Where are you? 

Where are you really – can you go, be, anywhere other than here?

What is this movement of mind and attention?

What is discovered when you are willing to stop, to stay still, here where you are, as you are? 

Again you find that the past does not exist other than in the mind! When you pay no attention to this arising of this imagined recreated past in the mind, there is only here – here where you already are . Again there is such a freshness, freedom,  peace, and release in this discovery.

This is who you are, this is where you are!

There is no need to search, to fix, to change, or even to stop the mind stream – in the willingness to just investigate what is true here and now – you discover this that was here all along, this that was over looked, this that is so simple, this that all is arising in, this that is your own Self – Free, Fresh, Here, Now.”

“We are so blessed to have the opportunity in this lifetime to sit in silence, to reflect, to inquire into the nature of truth and Self. Come home to yourself ! Who you really are at the core, in this very moment, is this that has always been here, this that always Is, the silent unchanging awareness” – Namaste Yantra-ji

Version 2

Gratitude
It is said that gratitude is the path to a happy life. We have all heard of, or come across people that are either grateful or ungrateful and we can see how this manifests in the physical life circumstances or attitudes.

Throughout our childhoods we may have heard the words “you are ungrateful’ or “you ‘should’ be grateful”. As adults we may be perpetuating this same thought stream, that we, or others are either ungrateful, or should be grateful. When we look about our lives, the lives of others or the world situation, there are so many things that the mind can find to be unhappy about, things that are wrong, or need changing, could be better, different or even not at all. When we cast our eye or mind across the state of the world we can find evidence for this. We will often hear, esp in spiritual circles about gratitude, that we ‘should’ be grateful. So we find ourselves swinging like a pendulum between avoiding being ungrateful and needing to be grateful, swinging between avoiding being sinners and needing to be saints.

It is said that gratitude is the path to a happy life. Whilst there is definitely evidence to support this and there are of course so many things that we can search for to be grateful for – there is another possibility.

Rather than avoiding what we don’t like or want, or trying instead to find and focus on what we do like or want, in order to be grateful – we can just be as we are, without preference, without any intent. In this there is a letting go – not a letting go of, or in order to – rather a letting go INTO what IS. Just a relaxing into the moment, into here, into now, into being itself.

Notice what is discovered when you stop? When you stop avoiding being ungrateful and when you stop needing to be grateful – what is here? When you have no preference, no need, no requirement for anything to be any particular way, what is discovered?

Here in the moment, here where you are, here now –  there is a spontaneous arising of life, of sensation, of feeling, of presence, of gratitude. Gratitude – grateful just because it is, life is, This is.

It is said that gratitude is the path to a happy life. Gratitude is not something that you need to generate, or must be generated in order to have a happy life – the happiness of life is arising and falling as gratitude itself, grateful for itself, to itself, for itself. What then is this Path to happiness? – When you stay here as you are there is no path, there is nowhere other than here and you discover, happiness just is, gratitude is. There is no needing to do or be anything, there is no-one to be grateful, or ungrateful – Gratitude is THIS – this spontaneous arising of This that you are, consciousness itself. Then you speak the truth – I Am – yes – I Am Grateful – Yes – this gratitude that is. Then the personality experiences the truth of this, is affected by this, is not separate from this – and all of life, of this life of form, is experienced as, and permeated by the truth of this, Gratitude itself.

Namaste in Gratitude for This – Yantra-ji

Special Satsang celebration of Papaji’s Birthday


( In gratitude to Chandi Devi for the sharing of this beautiful Photo of Beloved Papaji ) “Perfect awakening is possible here and now for every human being, regardless of background, practice or personal circumstances. You are already free! Anything gained afresh will be lost. What is eternal is always within you, as your own Self. This is the unchanging substratum on which your hopes and desires are reflected. It is hopes and desires which conceal the ever-pure consciousness. The Self will reveal to itself in the twinkling of an eye once you abandon all hope and desire, the old-age disease of the mind. Keep quiet. Don’t allow a single thought to stir.
Be effortless and in an instant you will discover that you have always been free. Om Tat Sat”
~ Papaji

On Tuesday evening the 13th October 2015 we had a Special Satsang celebration for Papaji’s Birthday.
My Beloved teacher Papaji, Sri H.W.L Poonja was born on the 13th October, 1910. We celebrated PAPAJI’S 105th Birthday as beloveds from all around the world gathered to honoring and celebrate the birth of his divine form. His form, which was used by the fire of grace , by life itself, to be an endless, effortless pointing to That which is the Truth, to That which you are, beyond form, Freedom itself – The Self itself, is this which we all are.
How lucky in this lifetime that we get to meet ourselves and each other through the grace of such a BEAUTIFUL EXISTENCE! SUCH A ONE!
I bow in gratitude to This – Blessings Papaji – for the wondrous gift of this one Self – Papaji Ki JaI !!!
~ In gratitude always for This – Namaste Yantra-ji
