Inspiration from Bhagwadgeeta

On this very special day of Geeta Jayanti, the name of our blog Gurukripa is changed to Narayankripa. By Narayankripa, today I am sharing the inspiration of Bhagwadgeeta.

The inspiration I realized today is from the verse

Narayankripa In Every Breath

It has been a month since I am not able to write properly from the time my Sadgurudeva left His Earthly divine presence from this world. I wished to write a post dedicated to Sadgurudeva  H. H. Shri Narayankaka Dhekhane Maharaj, but I just couldn't write the words like Memories...(--:'( --) in the article or poem. Everybody has their own world, but for me Sadgurudeva is the only world.

Explanation of Sanskrit Terms Used on Gurukripa


Jay Jay Shankar ! Har Har Shankar

"I pray to Lord Shankara to enlighten me with the Gyana."

We are discussing about Indian culture and philosophy of Advaita on this blog from past two years. While writing, I am actually realizing more and more and learning more. Many spirituality concepts are not in English which are very usual and common in Bharata. I was not getting satisfaction of writing by replacing the words and I try to keep what comes from heart as it is, because it is spiritual and not manual work.

Namakam - Chamakam Effect on Mind


Namaste brothers and sisters,

I was away from blogging and social networking last month due to stress and now also I was not feeling completely normal. Apart from that or another reason of stress is the high blood pressure I am having. It was 180/120, you can imagine, how restless I must be feeling. I had trouble while driving too. I had to take rest compulsory and the medicines which will bring down the BP. But unfortunately, the BP was not coming to normal.  Any music, any film, was not making me feel relaxed. I could not complete to post dedicated to second birthday of Gurukripa.

Vitthala Darshana on Devshayani Ekadashi


Yesterday was the Devashayani Ekadashi and we call it the big Ekadashi. This is the day of Pandharupur Vari, Pandarpur Pilgrimage, the time to meet Vitthala. Lord Shrikrishna is known as Vitthala. He is black, and I don’t’ know what magic HE has, everybody in Maharashtra is mad today to meet HIM. The pilgrims go walking to reach Pandharpur.

I am in a small city, Maharashtra and though I can’t reach to Pandharpur, I decided to go to Vitthala temple in Dhule. I decided to wake up and reach there at 5 to 6 AM. But I couldn’t manage it, I reached in the scorching sun at almost 11 AM. Before going there, I was tensed and a big irritated due to some problems. My two wheeler also had problems. And somehow, I just went in Not – So – Devotional mood.

Unseen Face of Life

This is the love story of Priya and her dreams.


Priya returned to home by some shopping, not anything big, important or tiring. Still, she felt tired a lot. As usual she took her dearest coffee and naturally opened the Facebook.

“Such a happy girl. Always cheerful.” 

This was the feeling of almost everybody around her, her friends or enemies. Everybody used to feel envy with her life and the way she was enjoying every moment of life.

Narada Bhakti Sutra -1


Namaste Brothers and Sisters!

By blessings of H. H. Shri Sadgurudeva, by the blessings, guidance of Shri. Kalki Sharma Guruji, who is just like Sadgurudeva for me, by blessings of H. H. Swami Mrigendra Saraswati who has blessed me and this blog by following and by blessings of all of you, from today, starting to a new series on Gurukripa. This is the detailed Vyakhya, the meaning and elaboration of Narada Bhakti Sutra. I am not a Gyani or a Great Devotee. To write on Narada Bhakti Sutra, I must have the devotion like Devarshi Narada, but I am such an ordinary person, if I think to do something for the devotion of Lord Krishna, I stop without even thinking further.

What Is My Identity? Who Is 'The Me'?



My blogging pal with pen name The Fool and author of the wonderful blog : Lucifer House Inc. has suggested the topic, 'The Basis of Your Identity - Caste, Language, Country, Profession or Ideals' And I liked this very much, because 'Who is Me? ' is the eternal question which bothers everybody. 







The spiritual journey starts with this question.  Today of Buddha Jayanti - The prince Siddhartha left his kingdom to realize his identity was restless by the same question and who has become Buddha – The Enlightened after the realization of the answer. Also, today is Narada Jayanti, and Narada is the Sage who has enlightened countless lives.  I am happy to share the thoughts on this question ‘Who is ‘Me?’ very auspicious day.

in life is the 'Change'; endless

holy chants in words

Sanskrit spiritual verses are small, but they have great deep meaning and power, so they are very divine, I realized the same beauty while writing the shortest poem like Haiku. We had different prompts to write and while writing I discovered the same beauty of Advaita philosophy, devotion, spirituality in the prompts given. I can't express the bliss I am feeling, while participating and reading the Haiku from all the great poets. Tomorrow will be last day of April, I will never forget this first Haiku Challenge and April 2012 month. 

I wish to thank all the poets, for encouraging me and for sharing their wonderful Haiku and thoughts. Beautiful journey indeed.

Sweet Song

Today sharing a different form of poem known as hay(na)ku. This has three lines like Haiku, and what special it has....let's see. Many of my friends think that I am too serious, so today, something light, yet deep and sweet to read, 




Love You
Sweetest three words

So

Still Emotions







'still' waiting for you
walking with life; pain and smile
'still' and still moving

~~o~~

still awake in night
for new thoughts; searching the spring
freshness in the dark

~~o~~

still I love you with
hopeful heart; never broken
awaiting always

~~o~~

she is still scared by
that trauma; abuse ruined her
flourishing sweet life


Physical, verbal, emotional, financial any kind of abuse is enough to ruin the life. Most of the times stories of victims are hidden, because they can't find courage to share their torture.
