The mind always wants something‼️❌✨🙏

There is a story about Mullah Nasruddin.

 Mullah was in love with a very beautiful girl, but he decided to marry somebody else.

 Someone asked him what happened. Why did he decide to marry someone else? 

His decision was very strange! So, they asked him, ‘What has happened to you? Are you not in love with that girl?’ 

Mullah replied, ‘I am in love with her, that’s why I’m not marrying her. If I marry her, how will I spend my evenings?’ 

A husband and wife often fight. What is the reason for this? 

The mind says I already possess my husband (or wife), so it never goes there because it has already possessed him (or her), but somebody else maybe… 

The wife is very beautiful but the mind doesn’t go there. 

They go elsewhere. The husband is very nice person, but the mind doesn’t go there, it goes elsewhere. 

It feels another person is better. The mind feeds or exists on illusion. 

It wants something that is not around. It wants something impossible. 

The moment it becomes possible, it moves away from there and goes further. 

It’s not anybody’s fault. It is the nature.

It is used to living on craving; so it gets frustrated anyway. Having or not having, fulfilled frustration or unfulfilled frustration.

The deeper meaning of Janamashtami  🕉😇✨🌿🕉🙏 

The beauty in our ancient stories is that they were never made location-specific or time-specific. 

Ramayana or Mahabharata are not just events that happened a long time ago, they are happening everyday in our lives. The essence of these stories is eternal.

There is a deeper meaning to the story of Krishna’s birth too. Devaki symbolizes the body and Vasudev symbolizes the life force (prana). When prana rises in the body, joy (Krishna) is born. But the ego (Kamsa) tries to eliminate joy. Kamsa is Devaki’s brother which indicates that ego is born along with the body. A person who is happy and joyful does not create trouble for anyone. It is the one who is unhappy and emotionally wounded who ends up causing disruption. Those who feel injustice has been done to them end up being unjust to others out of their hurt ego.


The biggest adversary of ego is joy. Ego cannot survive and has to bow down where there is joy and love. A person can hold a very high position in society, but he melts in front of his own little child. When the child falls ill, however strong the person is, they feel a little helpless. Ego simply melts when confronted with love, simplicity and joy. Krishna is the epitome of joy, the quintessence of simplicity and the very source of love.


Devaki’s and Vasudev’s imprisonment by Kamsa signifies that when the ego takes over, the body feels like a prison. When Krishna was born, the prison guards fell asleep. The guards here are the senses which protect the ego because they are turned outward when awake. Inner joy sprouts in us when the senses turn inwards.


Krishna is also known as the butter thief. Milk is the essence of nourishment and curd is a cultured form of milk. When curd is churned, butter comes up and floats on top. It is nourishing and yet light, not heavy. When our intelligence is churned, it becomes like butter. When knowledge dawns in the mind, one gets established in one’s Self. Such a person remains unattached to this world and his mind does not sink in it. Krishna stealing butter is a symbolism depicting the glory of love. So attractive is Krishna’s charm and skill that he steals the minds of even the most dispassionate.


Why does Krishna have the peacock feather on his head? A king is responsible for the whole society and that responsibility can become a burden, which sits on the head as the crown. But Krishna fulfills all his responsibility effortlessly, like a game. A mother never feels taking care of her children is a burden. Similarly, Krishna wears his responsibility lightly and plays his roles colorfully, just like the peacock feather on his crown.


Krishna is the most attractive, joyful space within all of us. When there is no restlessness, worry or desire in the mind, you are able to get deep rest. And it is in deep rest that Krishna is born.

The message of Janamashtami is that it is time to bring a wave of joy in society. Become seriously joyful!

Significance of harvest Festival in India 🇮🇳🌿✨

When there is harvest, we celebrate the arrival of the first crop by sharing it with everybody. 

You are getting the benefit of all your labor and your hard work. In villages, at home, people used to get the first sugarcane, the first bag of paddy and they share it with everyone.


Celebration cannot happen without sharing.

And in this country sharing also has some knowledge & wisdom in it. Every celebration brings some wisdom with it. 

That’s the beauty here.In Maharashtra, they give sesame seed and jaggery balls (laddoos). Sesame seed is the oil grain; sesame oil is the main oil that people use. 

Sesame, for some reason, is considered very precious. Sesame seed and jaggery are distributed to everybody and they say ‘You have this and let sweet words come out of your mouth’. 

This is the wish or greeting that we say. This tradition has been there for a long time.

This is also astrologically connected. Makar Sankranti is celebrated when the sun enters Makar rashi(Capricorn) which marks the end of winter.

In the southern hemisphere, you must be celebrating Kark Sankraman and not Makar Sankraman.

Our beginning of ‘Spring’ is beginning of ‘Fall’ for them and our ‘Fall’ here is beginning of ‘Spring’ in Australia.

So, the celebrations are also linked to seasons. Makar Sankranti is celebrated when you come from harsh winter into a pleasant sunshine.


Let your ego be small like sesame seeds and words like jaggery.

The story Of King Akbar And Fakir 👑😇✨🙏


There is a story King Akbar. He was doing a mass prayer on the open grounds. And there was a fakir(saint) who passed by. 


The king asked God, “Give me more wealth,  Give me more prosperity,” etc. 


And as he was about to finish, the fakir(saint) who was moving around, passed that way, he just stood and watched him for a couple of minutes and he moved away. 


And Akbar got up and said, “Oh, wait, wait, what is it that you want? Because I will give you whatever you want. 


You ask me.” You know, this used to be the tradition in those days. Kings allowed people to ask them whatever desire they had.


So this fakir said “I don’t take anything from a beggar. You yourself were begging, five minutes ago to God to give you more wealth and prosperity! 


You are still a beggar being an emperor. I don’t need to take anything from you. I’ll take it from whomever you are asking.”


It put Akbar into shame. He realized something very beautiful and said to himself,  “I have been a beggar all my life.”



A desire weakens you. It shakes you. Your root is shaken.

Just turn back and look at last year, how many days did you spend worrying about some thing insignificant? 


How many days did you spend thinking about something which is obsolete now? 


Our energy is getting dissipated in the form of fears and desires. And it is the desire which makes you weak.


Whatever thing you desire, in front of those people, you become meek, weak, powerless. 


Love is not that. 


Love is dedication, is offering, not asking for. 


Love cannot be experienced in the process of asking, “Give me more. What can you give me?  

READ MORE WISDOM! 


What joy can you give me?” In this run of asking, snatching, there can’t be Divine love. There can’t be fulfillment.

What Makes You Dance in Your Life⁉️ 💃✨🙏😇

Two things make you dance in your life! 

One is your desire, another is love.


Your desires keeps you on your toes, makes you dance all your life. 

 A desire gets fulfilled and gives rise to ten more, and you run all your life to fulfill them one after another. 

It makes you go on a merry go around(misery-go-around).

 If you look into it and become aware of the dance that your desires make you do, you will be amazed. It may be a very subtle desire and they get in to your heart and make you dance.


Then there is another type of dance that comes out joy, that comes out of love.


That deep love makes you dance. In this dance, you do not get tired. Shradha(faith) grows when a desire is fulfilled but when one desire does not get fulfilled the faith gets shaken. 

In love you don’t get shaken. You shake the whole world. Not just the world, but the entire universe. You make the angels and the Gods dance.

Chandi Homa, in the evening. Usually when people do yagyas they force themselves to dance or hire some professionals to dance. – how spontaneously everyone get an impulse to get on their feet and dance! That is sattva, the positive energy. 

That is the truth. Everything is authentically done and the dance happens automatically as a spontaneous natural phenomenon.You have everything you want, so just be and radiate.

When you are contented you automatically radiate peace.

Move on in life with the confidence that you will be given everything in abundance, and that you are being protected by the Divine. 

There is a divine armor around you that is protecting you; you have nothing to worry about.

Know this and keep walking ahead in life with satisfaction, confidence, joy, patience, fullness and faith

Tips To live A Happy And Healthy Life‼️😇✨

1)Ensure that you have good food, especially organic food – It is important that you have the right type and the right amount of food.

2)Pay attention to your health – A little bit of exercise, yoga and some meditation will help maintain good health.

3)Relationships – This is something that disturbs everybody, and there are many questions about it. 

I have three pieces of advice, one for men, one for women and one for both.


First, for women – never step on the ego of a man. A man should not be pressurized to prove himself at home.

Second secret is for men – don’t step on the emotions of women. 

Third, advice for both – do not question the other’s love for you. Don’t keep asking, “Do you really love me” or say, “You don’t love me!” 

This sort of complaining, demanding for love is not good. Demand destroys love, in you and in the other person too.

I want each one of you to be magnanimous; come from a space of, “I’m here for you!”

 Just imagine, when both say these words, there is so much harmony. When both want to grab, there is disharmony.

 When we move from the joy of getting to the joy of giving, we have matured in life, and this is a sign of success.


4)Devote some time to knowledge and meditation.


5)Enroll yourself in a silent retreat. I would like you to take a minimum of four days in a year to go deep into silence, and discover the enormous wealth that we have all been bestowed with. 

Meditating, learning more about our self, it will make such a big difference. It’s like getting your battery fully charged. 

You learn about your soul, about who you really are, and why we have come to this planet. What is the purpose of life; is it simply eating, sleeping, gossiping and dying one day or is there something more? 

We can discover all these things if we take a little time out for our self.


Definitely, a silent retreat once or twice a year can be very good.

Then, you will see that nobody can take the smile away from you, nobody can disturb you as you become so strong from within. 

And many more avenues, dimensions within you open up.

 If you only had ten days to live on this planet, what would you do⁉️ 😱🤔😴

We have lived today’s life. Be happy today. 

And tomorrow’s life will begin with the next sunrise.

 And the next day’s with the next sunrise……! If you only had ten days to live on this planet, what would you want to do? 

Sit and think what your priorities are. Are you worried about your relationship?

 In ten days you are going to go away; kick the bucket! Are you worried about your property?

 Are you worried about your friends and foes? Are you worried about what you are going to eat, your eating preferences? 

What are your preferences? Ten days to live of your life, and what are you going to do? 

We keep living as though we will live forever.

We hang onto things as though they will be there forever. 

We forget the sense of time and life –the flow of life. Isn’t that our only problem?


You’re so concerned about your relationship.


A girl didn’t smile at you or a boy went with somebody else! What are you worried about? 

Where will they be? People are burned down with this sense of relationship. 

People are burned down with things about friends; wasting precious life and time. 

A friend of yours behaved badly with you and hurt you. What actually hurts you is your foolishness. 

Let them behave the way they want! But you want everybody to be on your railway tracks. 

You have set railway tracks for people, and you want everybody to walk on those tracks.

 The moment they give you a surprise, you say you never wanted that in your life. 

How can you get over it? What do you want to get over? Just wake up and look! 

Neither of you are going to be there long! You will both be under the earth in no time.


You won’t even be able to recognize this body. 

And if you continue to live like that, nobody will even take your name. 

Nobody will even know you existed on this planet. Anyway, even if they do, it has no meaning for you, does it?

 Where are you to begin with? You feel that one person did this to you and another person did that. 

That they did not smile at you, or that they smiled at you. That they said something good; they did this… 

Where is your freedom? We carry such stupid things with us wherever we go! 

A doormat can remove the mud from your feet, but if you carry mud in your head. What can remove it?


Contentment is what you need! If people have behaved well with you and been friendly to you, thank them for what they have done for you. Don’t become a burden on them. The whole world needs to understand this; the entire world is burning out for nothing! 

Every moment put yourself into knowledge. Everybody should be immersed in two or three hours of sevā (service).


We look for what we do not have and there will be no contentment. I would like you to be contented in your mind, in your heart.
