You might had found in a country with thousands of religions, cast, language there r many people, or God fearing people or we can say who want to dedicate their life for God, there are few crazy people like My Punjabi Friend/room mate/child/brother or all above this my Guru, his name is Mandeep who is crazy about finding/knowing how and what is enlightenment.
Last year in december 2011 he left mumbai, to get Dikcha from a Guru in his Asharm in Prayash. While leaving, he said, he is not sure when he will be back, as he has some questions, until he find the answers to those question he will not come back, it could be a month or two, it could be an year or more, he doesn’t know about it. I said ok, he went to Prayash, they did not allowed him as he was very young for Dikcha etc., he was just 24 years that time..he spent around 2-3 months with his family and came back. But he stopped eating to non-veg. as they said, if u want to take dikcha then u shouldn’t eat non-veg food at least for an year.
So when we prepare non-veg. food and enjoy, he doesn’t eat them, but its not like he want to have non-veg. food, he has another Crazy who also ran here and there to find answers to many questions and is not part of the crowd, many people call him Mandeep baba, coz he has that type of look and even his behavior is also very good with everyone, mostly people likes him.
So when he was not eating non-veg. i asked him,” is it necessary that, we need to have an old brahmin or sanyasi to make them guru and get dikcha ” ?
Again I asked him,” u know who is my Guru ?
and i replied him, u r my Guru..he was silent for around 3-4 seconds, then he said, even i learnt a lot from u..i learn from others also…..i replied, yes very true…we can not learn everything from one person, could be few things, and many times, we learn ourselves, many times some tree, some blow of air, some waves in the sea, bubles on the wanter, innocent kids smile and many more things..when we make Guru to each and every particle in the universe that day we can learn a lot.
Now the thing is why i told to him my Guru ? coz. in jan1st2010 when 1st time he came to mumbai and straight way came to my room as a PG as my room mate, on the same night we had long conversation talking about each other, he is the 1st person in mumbai who was knowing me, what i am, whom i revealed my story. On the same night he told me few good things like – a quote of Confucious,” mujhne yeh gam nahi ki, tumne mujhen nahi samjha; balki mujhne yeh gam hein ki, meine tumhen nahi samjha”” well i really liked this word, as when people understand this, that time they can think about Jesusu words, when he was hanged, he said, hey God please forgive them, they don’t know what they r doing………so i got a big answers with this quote…..then after few days, he took his “BOOK of MIRDAD” out and showed me two lines,it was as ,” Kahtein hein, ki bhagwan ne hamen banaya and hamne bhagwan ko bana diya””” again, this was another big answer for me, as was reading Geeta for last 13 years, one day i was sitting below the open sky and thought in Geeta, there r 18 lessons and in every lesson the words that Krishna told to Arjun, that Karm kar bhavnaon ke adhen mat ho….so i thought the overall thing was this only, yes there were many more details inside but outlook can be said as above..so i was thinking, why people worship God, who saw them, why there r so many varieties of God etc..etc…but i did not get the answers that time ( 7-8 years back, i was in port blair, andaman that time, doing my college ) and finally i just decided to continue worshiping God, as there were nothing wrong in that, and its difficult to maintain any good habit, so just think from that prospect and do pooja………Now the moment he showed me, those lines from “Book of Mirdad”that “”God Made us, and we made God””” means, we know that some power/energy made us, but we did not knew what is that, but since we know there is some supernatural power which made us, so we gave them a name God, Bhagwan, Allah etc..etc..
i got answers to many more questions…i had realized that, the way we do pooja, worship god is not right, first thing is there is nothing hidden from it, so why do we need to tell/pray for it….and in 99% time we just ask something to god, to enrich u, ur family etc with good things….so god should not be prayed for ur needs..2nd thing, there can not be any time morning or evening good for prayer, there can not be any day Tuesday or Wednesday good to pray for them etc..etc…as every day is important, who d hell we r to distinguish which day is good and which day is bad…..so this way, i learnt many good things from him….
then i learnt many more things, when i read the book,” Osho-Mein Mrituin Sikhata hun”” and the learning process broaden after that, whatever i saw, i tried learning from them…
And finally after 13 years i stopped, Doing Murthy Pooja, Geeta Path etc…going to temple etc…..as now, i remember the supernatural power anytime, no evening & morning, no tuesday & wednesday, no temple…now temple is everywhere, below the open sky, on sea shore, in my room everywhere…. I decided to put my wooden temple, murthy, Geeta etc. in the Sea Water as for many years they were a part of of my life and wanted to take them away from my life with all respect and when i was leaving from room a lady in my neighbor asked to gave her and i gave her…..Later I removed, my pearl ring, rudraksh, mom’s tabiz, nazar suraksha kawach etc..and kept them in our temple ( in our home, in andaman)…..initially i was a little scared, while departing from all those things, as these were with me for long time, but believe me today i am absolutely fine after removing them from me, today i am, what i should without any fear for rahu,ketu,grah,nkchtra etc…..rather the views changed in such a way that, we all made up of 5 elements, we all r part of same source and life is pretty good, learn from small small things to big big things,love is everywhere..
I would share one more instance, this january2013 i was going to Hyderabad and when i was waiting for the bus, i was singing one of sridevi’s masti Song..a man saw me and said, waon..good energy, then we talk for around 5-10 minutes..he was waiting for bus to his city Bangalore….so, during our talks he said, Religion is a huge science..i asked how ? he said, its all about energy….i liked his words, as he said, it differently instead of saying, god, bhagwan, allah he said, its about energy……..then few more things he said like we human being are those cleaver animals who would cut the trees, they will prepare paper from that tree and on that paper they will write “don’t cut trees” …i liked his words further….then he said, no other animals need god, human beings is the only animal who need god…further he said, we just now found Bozone Particles, when we can found nucleus energy imagine what can happen…
So again come to point, Guru Dikcha…my friend, not necessary that your Guru should be some old brahmin, and has to from any ashram or from any temple, they can be anyone, they can be anywhere, they can teach you those things or might be you can learn those things from them which can unlock those questions which can take your sprite up……..But if you go to Temple, ashram, approaches brahmin, sanyashi etc. to take Guru Dikcha in the name of God, more than 99% of them r just fake people, who doesn’t know the 30% of basic things, then how come u can expect them for that truth which hardly few could know…
i am not telling every brahmin is fake they don’t know the 30% of the realistic things, but yes there could be possibility who had lots of studies hardly 2-5 people in the whole nation, who can tell you the right things…but believe me they don’t tell you that until they realize u worth that, as their words u might not accept coz. of boundaries that u created for urself, but u will have to find the right person..
Now, i have told to you my personal experiences, explorations etc..now you will have to decide what you want and how you will find your answers to reach to the source..$$
