About Belief in God

There are many persons in the modern world who influenced by modern science say they do not believe in God but lead a good moral life nevertheless and that is enough. They say who has seen God? Most scientists however, including this author do believe in God.
Those who say they have never seen God fool themselves because they see parts of God all the time. God is the entire universe and beyond. They do see that all the time. What they do not see is some imaginary conception of God in their mind and it is just as well that they do not see or believe in such imaginary creation of their minds.
Some say we do not see any miracles and that God should be able to perform those if he is Almighty. But God performs a miracle every instant of creation, in holding the planets together and in every breath we take that gives us life. If God were to add a new miracle they would get used to that too just as soon and say it is not a miracle. For those who have eyes to see there is an ocean of miracl…

Of gods, angels, kings and leaders

The mystic yogi sat on a flat rock on the hillside. With years of practice, he knew now how to still his mind and body. Breathing with calm and uttering His name repeatedly, thinking of the infinite Lord alone he found his consciousness detaching from his body, submerging in an infinite sea of bliss, beauty and joy but a question arose in his mind,
“Lord you are so beautiful, so full of joy. I feel my consciousness being pulled into your bosom, to become a part of you, to escape once and for all from endless cycles of joy and suffering but would that not be a selfish thing to do? I would find eternal bliss but there are so many others still suffering. Better it would be that I stay back and help them in whatever way I can.”
The infinite Lord then answered in his heart,
“Your compassion is admirable but how much can you do with this frail human body of yours? Come to the worlds of bright elevated beings known as angels, bodhisattvas, gods and a thousand other names. You shall then be em…

Slight Change of Blog Title

Sometime back as explained in my older blog on life and spirituality I had started adding the title of Babaji to my name Ashok and changed the blogger profile name to Ashok Babaji. However recently a google search revealed that there are others by that name too and it had caused some confusion for some of my friends and followers who had done likewise. Ashok is rather common South Asian name just like John is in the west and the use of suffix or prefix Babaji common to many persons involved with the spiritual or mystic side of life. Therefore to avoid confusion I have added the prefix doctor now. Accordingly that has been added in the blog title too. It took me around twenty years of formal education, around three to earn the doctoral degree and eventually become a scientist and professor which was the source of my livelihood, but it took around thirty years of simultaneous mystic personal studies in whatever time that became available in a busy professional career, to use the title …

Birds sing for you

Birds sing for those whose minds are free from an endless pursuit of desires
A mind too preoccupied Lost in struggle and strife Remains deaf to sweet songs That birds sing for all life Blind to smile of a flower Caress of green fields and trees Kiss of sunshine and the gentle breeze Colors of a sunset Glory of sunrise too Mother Earth and Father Universe Laid out for you
One remains like a pitiful beggar if ever in the pursuit of more despite having enough to eat and live  in reasonable comfort but when one is contented with what one has then one attains happiness and enjoys gifts of love and beauty of nature that is available to all without having to ask or struggle.

Many a multi-millionaire and billionaire did Mother earth raise. They all said we have amassed a huge amount of wealth, we shall increase it, we have won this today, we shall win that tomorrow, and we shall make good use of it. Poor fellows, most of them died, the few that remain shall die soon too, for the angel of death …

Secret of Happiness in Old Age

When this frame of yours is weak and old When motion slow, even bending a chore Yet in moments that are quiet, full of peace If a river of joy runs through your heart It is a sign dear friend That time is not far When the Lord who made it all Who gave this clothing for your soul Shall take it away It is old and worn Your precious soul To make you whole Needs a bright new suit Given to you With a song and dance
Cry out many, We would like that too How does one get that cool A deep sorrow weighs on my head A deep fear troubles my soul Is it hard work? Does one have to pray?
Not at all dear friend It is as easy as a child’s play Just make this dear to your heart Love, truth and simplicity Gratitude for what the universe gave Not what you sought A little work for yourself A little for the world around Humans, animals and Mother Earth Even now, its not too late Embrace love, give up hate
You need not pray, not at all Silently without a sound Just utter His name Again and again The …

Journey to Paradise

Patches of green level ground lie on hills between high mountains with snow covered peaks. Surrounding hills are covered with forests of oak, pine and a variety of luscious fruits and nuts. Underneath grow bushes with sweet berries, delicious mushrooms and wild flowers. Colorful butterflies dance about on flowers as birds sing on tree branches. Springs of sweet water sprout forth from many a place on mountain sides collecting in lakes of clear blue water below. It is neither too hot in summer nor too cold in the winter. Such is the place where the blessed dwell with dwellings beside the lake and on level grounds on hillsides. Earth is not paradise but bits of paradise lie scattered across the bosom of Mother Earth. Yes, Yes you say, surely there are places like that on Earth. But then you go on to add, we are seven billion strong going on to ten, there is not enough room for us all in paradise.

Ask the billions that scurry back and forth Why they hurry so, what is it they seek? Mo…

For those aspiring to become very rich

Beauty and joy may be found just as easily in the hut of a not so rich man, as pain and strife is found in the mansion of a billionaire. May the Lord relieve them of their misery soon.

Billionaires He made
The Lord above To punish and enslave Only a rare one for freedom and joy
Wealth is like food A little does much good Take in too much The misery is huge
