This begins a new practice…

Hi everyone…

Many years ago, Guruji sent us a fax (this was before email was popular) to be read out on the Thursday evening Satsang. It was a Knowledge fax (as He called it). And the first line was, This begins a new practice…

For 7 years, every week there would be a Knowledge byte from Guruji. These were always profound, and many times very funny too. The satsang groups all over the world would eagerly look forward to reading theΒ fewΒ paragraphs of Knowledge from Him… and magically for most of us, it would be that exact thing we needed to hear that week…

I was involved in writing many of these Knowledge sheets out, as were many others all over the world, and we would always be in wonder about what Guruji would pick up that particular week to talk about… These scintillating little pieces of Knowledge have been collected into 7 volumes, one for each year, entitled “An Intimate Note to the Sincere Seeker Volumes 1-7″… Β 7 precious gems of books which everyone should buy and keep! πŸ™‚

They have also been compiled together subject wise into Celebrating Silence and Celebrating Love, but unfortunately someone took it into their heads to “edit” the language, etc and personally i don’t like the final result.

On the courses that Dinesh and i teach, many times we read and talk on a few of these Knowledge Sheets at random… and everyone loves those sessions a lot. So, we have begun a new practice… Every week, we will record our commentary on the Knowledge Sheets and post a video on the yesplus tv channel on youtube as well as over here…

Our blog has now gone talky! πŸ™‚

Watch this on Youtube

Jai Gurudeva!

  23. sunil kanwarjani says:

    Great news, it is fantastic to know more in detail for each knowledge sheet. Just loving it. Joygurudev.

  24. Adarsh says:

    Bawa, please dont take this otherwise…

    I feel its guruji’s knowledge sheet because it flows from guruji… I dont think a commentary on those knowledge sheets are required…

    I ll tell you an instance.. After an yes+ satsang, some of the yes+ teachers read out the knowledge sheet and they start interpreting in their own way… Many of the times the very essence of the knowledge is lost because of these new YES+ teachers over enthusiasam…

    I feel the knowledge sheets should be read and left to the devotees to grasp.. A commentary isnt required.. jai gurudev

    • Bawa says:

      hmmm … so you are not going to buy the DVD of the compilation of my and dinesh’s talks on the KNowledge Sheets? πŸ™‚

    • Gaurav says:

      Dude…you also please dont take this otherwise…but dont forget who bawa/dinesh are…i am not sure comparing Yes+ Teachers with Advance course teachers is a gr8 idea(All due respect to Yes+teachers).. as Difference lies in an aditional “+”. and one more thing”Yes++/Advance Corse teachers cannot be wrong,its not scientific”…do Advance course instead and see the difference…you dont know who these ppl r(neither i)..but they r extraordinary…love you Bawa nd Dinash bhaiya

      • Adarsh says:

        Sure, nothing personal against anybody, but the fact of the matter lies that some of the new YES+ teachers have gone overboard in explaining the knowledge sheets to the new YES+ grads… Sometimes even the knowledge has been distorted…

        I have great respect for bawa and dinesh… they are the best… Nobody can question their depth of knoledge.. I am sure they ll give a good commentary..
        My apprehensions are that this commentary should not lead to another commentary in the satsangs by the new YES+ teachers..

        • Bawa says:

          No real harm there … There can be many, many facets to what Guruji has said and everyone interprets it how they get it… if others like it and think its useful, of course they keep it and get benefitted by it, if not, just discard… anyways the original Knowledge Sheets are there for all to read and enjoy and interpret and implement πŸ™‚
          Jai Gurudeva!
