Way of Life

 

 

 

A “World Department of Peace and Equality” and “World Department of Life” is something of need and if it comes it changes the way of life. Humans are not resources, the flora and fauna are not resources but treasures to be saved, preserved and allowed the freedom to live in peace without any discrimination on the basis of sex, caste, creed, breed, boundaries or religion. One needs to become humane before calling oneself humans.
Science and Technology need not be developed for extermination of life, rather the natural resources covering the vast expanse of the creation should be utilized for the betterment of life.
Religion need not be there for they have divided people over the ages and not helped bringing in peace.
Business and trade should be developed for all round development of life forces within the whole of nature. Those business ventures and trade that go against the norms of nature should be banned.
Education should not be just based on career, jobs and development of finances only but it should be able to help develop better human-beings who believe that nature and world is a treasure and is being held in their hands as a gesture of Trust by Nature to handed over to the future generation.
Medicines and their research should be nature friendly, bringing one closer to life rather than extending the life filled with new diseases and side-effects.

Guru Purnima Message from His Holiness Shri Maitreya Rudrabhayananda ji

Guru Purnima Message from His Holiness Shri Maitreya Rudrabhayananda ji

“One always searches for Satguru. For a Acharya can teach what He knows; a Guru can show a way; while a Satguru will lead one from the darkness held so close to heart to the light of wisdom. One who searches should be clear what He or She is looking for, if they are just roaming around then nothing shall be gained, if either Acharya or a Guru is found, something is achieved, while those who hold on the path of knowing, and gaining blessing and grace from a Satguru will truly realize the inner Self of Consciousness.”

Among the 12-13 full moons in a year the vaishakha full moon is dedicated to Buddha (his birth and enlightenment), jyeshtha full moon to mother earth and the aashadha full moon is dedicated to the memory of masters. This is Guru-Purnima.

It is the day when the disciple wakes up in his fullness and in the wakefulness he can’t be but grateful. This gratitude is not of dwaita (you and me), but of advaita. It is not a river moving from somewhere to somewhere, but is the ocean moving within itself. So, gratefulness on Guru-Purnima symbolizes that fullness.
The purpose of the Guru Purnima celebration is to turn back and review and see in this last one year how much one has progressed in life. For a seeker, Guru Purnima is a day of significance. It is the day to review one’s progress on the spiritual path and renew one’s determination and focus on the goal. As the full moon rises and sets, tears of gratitude arise and repose into the vastness of one’s own self.”

We welcome all members of the divine Lineage of Caitya Dharma, families and friends to join us in celebration.
Wishing all other Divine Souls a very Happy Guru Purnima and those still struggling with themselves to find a Satguru to show them a way.

Swami Chidananda ji

Another beautiful event in the life of Ācharyagüru Swami Shri Chidananda Bharati ji. Something perfect for holy day of Guru purnima.
This even happened at Chitrakoot ( Madhya Pradesh), 1991, here lot of people used to come to attend meditation and satsang shivirs of Ācharyagüru ji. Most were invitational. I had the honour of attending one such shivir and serving in satsang kendra.
We used to have bhajans, chanting, meditation, discourses and in the night it was good to sit at the feet of Ācharyagüru ji near the Mandakini River at Anusuya ashram.
In the early morning we heard lot of commotion, one of the disciple who had recently joined was caught stealing. Ācharyagüru ji smiled and asked others to leave him. In the evening again the same person was caught stealing and everyone wanted to dismiss the person, Ācharyagüru ji again smiled and indicated to leave the person.
Maybe it was motivation for the person that He is being forgiven every time, he again was caught next day and now everyone said that they would leave the satsang and meditation camp if the thief remained.

Ācharyagüru ji was literally gheroed (encircled).Ācharyagüru ji smiled again and said “You all people consider yourself intelligent, awakened and also know the difference between right and wrong. The problem here is also similar except that this person does not know the difference between right and wrong. All of have an option of redemption and repentance but this person will keep suffering the fate everytime due to his ignorance. I can teach him the way of differentiating between right and wrong, if he wishes to learn or he has an option of leaving and continuing on the path of doing wrong. On my own I shall never ask one to go, if by action, words or deeds he shows his reluctance to stay and learn then he can move, I shall be the last person to stop him’.
I was watching the transformation happening within the person and the way he cried with all heart and soul in place even moved people around. He became Swami Advitiyananda ji a divine soul who had taken Sampoorna Sanyasa diksha and now resides in Benaras near Chausathi Ghat.

‘No work, no food’ – Paramacharyaguru Shri Swami Abhayananda Bharati ji

A beautiful event in the life of Ācharyagüru Swami Shri Chidananda Bharati ji during His student life with Sri Swami Abhyananda Bharati ji
All the disciples, including Ācharyagüru Swami Shri Chidananda Bharati ji and Sri Swami Abhyananda Bharati ji used to labour trimming the gardens,cleaning the grounds, and pruning the trees. Then one day all the disciples felt that age was catching up with Sri Swami Abhyananda Bharati ji and with so much hard work it is going to harm Him. But they all knew that Pāṛmācharyagüru ji would not listen to their advice to stop, so they hid away his tools.
They all used to eat once in the day. But that day Pāṛmācharyagüru ji did not eat. The next day he did not eat, nor the next.
So all the disciples felt that “He may be angry because we have hidden his tools.”
Realizing this as a mistake they put them back.
The day they did, Pāṛmācharyagüru ji worked and ate the same as before. In the evening Pāṛmācharyagüru ji instructed them: “No work, no food.”

Master and Teachers

 

“In spiritual life you can have only one Master but many teachers, in life we have many Masters and Many Teachers. Every single day of your life you meet people who love you, cheat you, deceive you, use you, ignore you, hate you. And each of these people are teachers but the real Masters among them are those who have pushed you, abused you or helped you to such an extent that the very best within you has emerged. There are two extremes of Masters here one who breaks you and another who reconstructs you, it is your own willpower, freewill and intention that allows you to either break down or rise again like a phoenix. Those who help in reconstruction of you in You are amazing and it’s being with those people that will remind you everyday why it is all worth it”. ~ His Holiness Maitreya Rudrabhayananda ji
