MY VISIBLE SHIVA

O Wielder of the Guru Mandala Rod of Purity, thou
Emissary and personification  of The Three-Eyed Auspicious One,
Praise and honor are your portions evermore, as
Through you, the invisible has become visible.
Those innumerable strands of lustrous black hair, say Oh say
Mohanji, aren’t they countless serpents adorning your head?
They speak of hidden love, courage, wisdom, power, and truth
Of the Protector of Dharma that you are Guruji. Oh Mahayogi
To see and hear you is to have Shiva handy, and bathe 
In the magnificent glory of the rising and setting sun.

When in the Embassy of Your Divine Presence
Will the visa grant permanent or temporary residency 
Of the worlds of splendor and state of bliss yearned for?
Yes, cold and warm shivers run down the spine to contemplate
That first meeting with my Dharmic Lord, my Visible Shiva.
Will the mountain of limitations, fears, ancient karma convulse
Quake and disintegrate, will ego take flight or hide in the brushes of mind
When I meet my Shiva face to face?
Will it be night, will it be daytime, when I catch a close glimpse of my Shiva?
And will the torrent of beneficent divine energy break the dykes of being
And knock me to the ground?

What to expect upon meeting Shiva’s replica, I know not
But meeting visible Shiva is a must and must come to pass, before
The black serpent locks become snow-white.
All hail the Visible Shiva who gives a foretaste of the intangible
And the glory that awaits everyone within the smithy of being.

ତୁମ ବିନା ପଥ ନାହିଁ

କେହି ମାଗେ ତୋତେ ଦେଇଦେ ମୋତେ
କାଲିର ସୁନେଲି ସପନ
କେହି ମାଗେ ତୋତେ ଦେଇଦେ ମୋତେ
ସବୁ ଖୁସିର ଜୀବନ
ମାଗୁନି ମୁଁ ତୋତେ ଦେଇଦେ ମୋତେ
ଧନ ଜନ ଆଉ ମାନ
ଦେଇଦେ ମୁକ୍ତି ମାଗୁଛି ତୋତେ
ଚାହେଁନା ମୁଁ ଏ ଜୀବନ
ହେ ବାସୁଦେବ ହେ ବାସୁଦେବ
ତୁମେ ହି ମୋ ପ୍ରିୟତ୍ତମ
ହେ ଗୁରୁଦେବ ହେ ଗୁରୁଦେବ
ତୁମେ ମୋ ପ୍ରିୟ ମୋହନ

ମଣିଷ ଧାଏଁ ମରୀଚିକା ପଛେ
ତୃଷ୍ନାର ଶାନ୍ତି ନାହିଁ
ମାୟା ମରୀଚିକା କାମନା ଅନଳେ
ଆଲୋକ ସନ୍ଧାନ କାହିଁ
ବୁଝି ବୁଝେନା କାମନା ବାରିରେ
ମୃଗତୃଷ୍ନା ଶାନ୍ତି ନାହିଁ
ହେ ବାସୁଦେବ ହେ ବାସୁଦେବ
ତୁମ ବିନା ମୁକ୍ତି କାହିଁ
ହେ ଗୁରୁଦେବ ହେ ଗୁରୁଦେବ
ତୁମ ବିନା ପଥ ନାହିଁ I

I Am with You Everywhere

Happy Birthday Mohanji

I wish to dedicate this poem in Hindi for Mohanji on his Birthday

तेरी कृपा से मैं यहाँ हूँ
*******************
तेरी कृपा से मैं यहाँ हूँ!

ओ मेरे देवा ओ मेरे मोहन
ओ मेरे साई ओ मेरे दत्ता

तेरे कमल चरण में  शीश नमन कर
जीवन मेरा धन्य हुआ

जितनी बार गिरा हूँ मैं
उतनी बार संभाला

हर तरफ हो तुम मेरे
हर तरफ तेरा ही उजियारा

हर रूप में तुम समाये हो
हर रूप का आधार भी तुम हो

दिन रात तेरा ही नाम लेता रहूँ
तुम ही आसरा हो मेरे

तेरी कृपा से मैं यहाँ हूँ
ओ मेरे देवा ओ मेरे मोहन
ओ मेरे साई ओ मेरे दत्ता

Experiencing Mohanji

DSC_6556

Mohanji is a magnificent golden living waterfalls;
Falling from the heights of heaven.
Golden waters of grace, shining with colors of love and liberation.
Pouring down with power that enthralls.
Beating down with beauty that permeates the breeze.
People leaving behind their masks and baggage,
Ready to jump into the higher consciousness,
Waiting to trek towards liberation
Come to bathe in Sadguru Mohanji’s divine presence.
The gold waters! – They work magic!
Washing away stubborn egos,
Silencing the chattering mind,
Healing the brokenness within
Filling the emptiness with love,
Melting away past burdens,
Unfolding the path to liberation!
Smiles light up faces, sparkles in eyes.
A lotus blooms deep within.
Transformation!– slow and steady.
Greater awareness; greater compassion;
A promise of a freer tomorrow.
Bathing becomes an embrace,
Embrace becomes a cleansing.
Cleansing leads to lightness.
Lightness leads to the light.
Thank you Mohanji. Pranams.

Yatra with Mohanji

I have a desire to be able to go with Mohanji and the family on pilgrimage to Mount  Kailash. This time it seems not possible in a physical matter, but my mind and heart are with you. The connection is what is most important, I realise that every day; in His presence is a pilgrimage. It turned out to be a poem.

Photoshoot with people (14)

Yatra with Mohanji
(on the Road to Kailash and everywhere else)

It is just a feeling
Is it your grace again?
That is guiding me from within
And is calling me to walk with you

Still the road hidden, and my vision a bit dim
But the Path that we follow is Bright
Be aware, Just a single step can change the course of a life
But by grace Your footprints glow in the night

So walk in peace and walk in Grace
Surrender yourself to the One
Who is going nowhere but stays in a place
Of Stillness Beyond the Beyond

Now it does not matter where I’m going
Does not matter what I’m going through
All the People’s faces
all events and places
even what I thought to be me
turns out to be only YOU

Grant Me Your Grace

devotional poem, prayer, grant me your grace
I’m only human caught in this trap of my mind
Mohanji Guru
Help me believe in what I could be
And all that I am my Guru
Is a soul seeking Your love
Show me the way back home
Show me a way into the silence
For that is all I wanna be
Master grant me Your grace
Beloved master for my sake, teach me Your ways
To become like You
And follow Your example
One step at a time
Beloved master
That’s all I’m asking from You.
Just give me the strength
Papa Mohanji
To do every day what I have to do.
Yesterday is gone
But today is my hope
And tomorrow may never be mine.
Lord help me today, show me Your way
Beloved master
One step at a time I will take
Do You remember, master when You spoke to me
You told me You know my heart
Sometimes I am in pain master
But Your words have graced me
What can I say
Thank You my dear Mohanji

The Urge of the Soul

devotional poem, kneeling prayer

Oh beloved master
I knock at Your beloved heart again
listening to your satsangs 
brings out the best in me

Your profound truth marries
my very existence
Your message plays
the music of love
the soul becomes the dancer
lost in the symphony of this divine delight

of pure bliss
the soul opens like
a thousand-petal lotus
giving of His perfumes
just to see Your face
help me rise above

The mind’s limitations
emotions that imprison
my freedom
merge me into the oneness of Your love

Guru you have lifted
my thoughts into freedom
the seed of longing
has been planted firmly
into the beloveds heart

My Heart in the Guru’s Love

Mohanji 10

Oh beloved Mohanji
Your kind and gentle voice
Whispers softly into my ears
Reminding me of who I am

Your love has infused
My cells with grace
My heart is burning intensely
I am saturated with bliss
The soul has been nurtured
By Your never ending love

Every breath is in Your name
Every utterance is in Your will
Your teachings are the rarest
Jewels in this world

Your presence brings
Happiness in this world
Satisfaction to the heart
You gave me hope through
My depressed state of mind
You have conquered the mind
Only to teach us Your inner wealth
Jai Mohanji
