Ganapati

Guruji talked about Ganapati in a very different way the other day during Satsang. The Universe is made up of groups of atoms called Ganas. And specific groups behave in specific ways.

Karjat to Khandala

or Bombay to Poona at this time of the year is enchantingly wondrous… torrents of rain, rolling wispy clouds creating a magical mist, fresh, fresh air, lush grassy mountain sides with that fresh, new bright, happy green and achingly beautiful gushing waterfalls… some of them splashing right into your face as you stand at the […]

God’s Own Country

If your body is a cell phone, then your phone number, which is unique is your jivatma, your Self. Guruji was in top form yesternight and this was one of the sentences He said.
