What Is Life

Swami Vishwananda’s Recent Pre-Darshan Talk in Finland: What Is Life? Mahavatar Babaji reiterates the benefits of Swami Vishwananda’s Atma Kriya…”Be free and have no regrets at your time of departure as . . . speaks about. . .”

Swami Vishwananda: How many know what life is? Life is Divine. How many know that it’s Divine? How many people know how precious life is? Once you realize what life is, you will see life completely differently. Life is not just working, eating, sleeping. That’s what people think very often. People enslave themselves in work and in eating. Most of the time people don’t eat properly and often they enslave themselves in just sleeping. Life goes on. When the time comes for their departure, they will realize, “Oops, I have missed something.” When they look back at how many opportunities they had of realizing the beauty of life and they have regrets. They then realize how many opportunities have come their way where they could have realized themselves. They realize at departure time how great this gift of life is that God has given; and yet they have wasted it.

Again I ask the question: What is life? [Someone in darshan audience says, “Love.”] That’s it! The Divine seems far away. For the mind to understand the Divine, it’s very difficult. Until you have really cleansed the mind from thinking, until you have really purified the mind completely, the Divine is quite difficult to understand. Life is love. And love of course is Divine; love is God. The feeling of love is what life is about, and to realize this great love and not just partial love. Not that today I say “I love you,” and tomorrow, “Who is that person?” Not that love, but know love which is beyond expression, love which is unconditional and love that is in everything around you. That’s what love is; that’s what life is. [Excerpted].

Mahavatar Babaji
reminds us today: [excerpted from Unity With The Divine]. Swami Vishwananda’s Atma Kriya is comprised of tools for transformation that reach all levels of existence: physical, energetic, intellectual, emotional, mental and spiritual. It creates transformation that is a catalyst for reuniting limiting human consciousness with the atma, the soul, and thereby reuniting the atma with Cosmic Consciousness. In essence Atma Kriya is a powerful and potentially expeditious pathway to achieving Cosmic Consciousness – Unity With The Divine. Babaji says today: This is life, this is love. Do not be one who wastes this precious gift of life. Become free and have no regrets at your time of departure as Swami Vishwananda speaks about in his above address to the people of Finland recently.

Deora Ar Mo Chroiby [Song by Enya]
InerBeing [Poem by Thich Nhat Hanh]

The sun has entered me
The sun has entered me. . .
together with the cloud and the river.

I myself have entered the river,
and I have entered the sun
with the cloud and the river.

There has not been a moment
when we do not interpenetrate.

But before the sun entered me,
the sun was in me,
also the cloud and the river.

Before I entered the river
I was already in it.
There has not been a moment
when we have not inter-been.

Therefore you know
that as long as you continue to breathe
I continue to be in you. . .

Dear Babaji,

by becomming more quiet I am able to understand more and more my inner voice which is connected with God and His Saints (because I am one of His children).

Kriya - and Atma Yoga are leading through this process to make it more clear and stronger. With receiving my experiences I know more and more if I will be connected with Him and You.

And one day I will know for sure - "It is so!"

And I thougt mostly that Life is kind of a training to make my own will stronger. Even in case that God is not agree... My God...

Is it so?

Thank You for all Your Love

a poem by Bulleh Shah
(1680 - 1758)

Bulleh! to me, I am not known

Not a believer inside the mosque, am I
Nor a pagan disciple of false rites
Not the pure amongst the impure
Neither Moses, nor the Pharaoh

Bulleh! to me, I am not known

Not in the holy Vedas, am I
Nor in opium, neither in wine
Not in the drunkard`s intoxicated craze
Niether awake, nor in a sleeping daze

Bulleh! to me, I am not known

In happiness nor in sorrow, am I
Neither clean, nor a filthy mire
Not from water, nor from earth
Neither fire, nor from air, is my birth

Bulleh! to me, I am not known

Not an Arab, nor Lahori
Neither Hindi, nor Nagauri
Hindu, Turk, nor Peshawari
Nor do I live in Nadaun

Bulleh! to me, I am not known

Secrets of religion, I have not known
From Adam and Eve, I am not born
I am not the name I assume
Not in stillness, nor on the move

Bulleh! to me, I am not known

I am the first, I am the last
None other, have I ever known
I am the wisest and the greatest fool -
Bulleh! do I stand alone?

Bulleh! to me, I am not known
