My friend Krishna's few quotes!!
LORD’S GRACE ASHRAM
Most Probably it’s my joyful and sacred days which I spent at Lord’s grace ashram. where I have spent all my childhood and enjoying the love from my Mathaji.
My Mathaji used to stay in the lord’s grace ashram. Mathaji was a kind of perfect mother, guardian, Teacher to students. I can’t forget any single moment I spent at Ashram.
One of my Conversation with Mathaji :
Me: Why People Commit mistakes in-spite of their awareness of Future bad consequences?
Mathaji: Because they know about their mistakes but they think less about Consequences which occur after they make mistakes. or sometimes they never care for its future results. People spending lots of money on entertainment or fun is not waste until for limit, An Poor worker wasting a single coin makes him trouble. I really feel why they do it? they drink and drive , people smoke, drink. these are very common things which people consider Let go… No problem with this. The moment of a single second of happiness is greater than long-lasting health and happiness.
Me: But Mathaji why some people are capable of controlling their natural distractions on Smoking, Drink How do they do it?
Mathaji: Its the biggest Achievement Akshay! During our childhood, we had few homes near us, very few learned peoples with very high Life values. the poverty was much more significant than the distractions, still, we could find some hanging out with distractions. but a country like India, [ Mathaji was from Mumbai ] has all typical things which we can mention problem from Poverty to rich-man’s selfishness. The only justification is mental illness or pure selfishness.during the course of time we had things like awareness of personal health… we knew to smoke a Tobacco was harmful and due to more of a poor home, they never get used to it.
Mathaji suggested me some of Sivananda swami’s Quotes. but Mataji said in their own words… I don’t remember exact words, but I found this on the internet.
Put your heart, mind, and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success.
Do not brood over your past mistakes and failures as this will only fill your mind with grief, regret and depression. Do not repeat them in the future.There is something good in all seeming failures. You are not to see that now. Time will reveal it. Be patient.Crave for a thing, you will get it. Renounce the craving, the object will follow you by itself.Life is a pilgrimage. The wise man does not rest by the roadside inns. He marches direct to the illimitable domain of eternal bliss, his ultimate destination.There is no end of craving. Hence contentment alone is the best way to happiness. Therefore, acquire contentment.Complete peace equally reigns between two mental waves.Always do good to others. Be selfless. Mentally remove everything and be free. This is divine life. This is the direct way to Moksha or salvation.Go beyond science, into the region of metaphysics. Real religion is beyond argument. It can only be lived both inwardly and outwardly.The harder the struggle, the more glorious the triumph. Self-realization demands very great struggle.
Our Lord’s Grace ashram is located in Whitefield, In the city of Bangalore. Here I’m sharing some of the pictures I captured in Lord’s grace ashram.
When I close my eyes and think about the peaceful place in the universe. I get My Lord’s Grace Ashram in front of my eyes. This is because our beloved Mathaji who was living there, with Divine fragrance all around beautiful place. But when I’m writing this post, she was no more!
Where one used to learn Art and craft, one can learn Yoga, meditation, life values to live life at fullest.
I think it was afternoon when I asked my Mataji to give some books from her room to read. books were not arranged in bookshelf. They were kept in a wooden almirah. It was then, my eyes paid attention to the book. That was “Song of Divine Love “. I asked Mataji, Mathaji Can I take these books with me? She replied happily, “Sure !” I was always Enthralled with physics theories, but when it comes to spirituality my virtual guru Sivananda books are my favorite. I then took that book home. Usually, I read books while traveling (My college is far from my home ). When I can manage time after Music riyaz/voice culture, guitar practice I take some of these books to read. It’s a Book. So one such book is ” Song of Divine Love ” by Santananda Saraswati. It’s a small book which describes Vedanta, Divinity, Lord Shiva And lastly The mother nature. Reading the ” Tune of Love behind this “song”. When Swami SANTANANDA SARASWATI says
Echo of a song – dedicated: During the eve of her long journey, she was followed by a, loving divinity when she glanced, wondering, “Is she the same ?” To find out all, about her “game”, oh that was a loving look of recognition! . Through our eyes, a mutual smile beamed, just with an “AUM” our Link resumed!
