Sadhak & Kali Maharaj Satsang By SriSri 108 Sri Vinod Bihari Das Baba Ji Maharaj

Discontentment (asantosh) is the sign that Kali maharaj is ruling over your mind. This is understood by the thirst Parikshit maharaj felt when he went for hunting after wearing the crown of Jarasandh. Kali searches for holes in your bhakti, in your sadhana to make his way into your mind and as soon as he finds one, he stealthily enters your mind without your slightest realization. When Parikshit maharaj was chasing Kali yuga to kill him, Kali yuga ran to various places but wherever he went he saw Parikshit maharaj with his bow and arrow in front of him. Finally, he took shelter at his feet. He knew that Parikshit maharaj was a true Kshatriya and followed the principles of Kshatriya dharma sincerely. He would not kill a person come to his shelter. When Parikshit maharaj told him to leave his empire he said that the whole world was his empire, where could he go? Parikshit maharaj said he would give him four places to reside. He said Kali could reside in gambling, himsa (vi

Karma & Tapasya By - SriSri 108 Sri Vinod Bihari Das Baba Ji Maharaj

Karma is of three kinds:  Kayik (physical) vachik (related to speech)  Manasik (mental)  Manasik karma means contemplation of the physical appearance (roop), qualities (gun) and pastimes (lila) of Krishna, devoting your mind to bhagvat chintan leaving all else.  Vachik karma means speaking only what is spiritually beneficial to others, spiritually motivates others and describes the roop, gun, lila of Krishna.  Kayik karma means doing everything with the intention of pleasing Krishna.

Second Stage of Bhakti | Sadhu Sanga | Sri Vinod Babaji Maharaj

"Binu satsang na hari katha, teha bin moha na bhaag,  Moha gaye bina raam pada hoye na dhridha anuraag" (Ramcharitramanas ‘Uttar Kand’ - Doha 61) Meaning: -  Without the association of enlightened sadhus and listening to discourses about Hari and His pastimes, the delusions engulfing a sadhak will not leave him, and without dispelling the worldly delusions, one cannot achieve the love of the lotus feet of Rama. The association of devotees has great importance in the path of Bhakti. It doesn't mean that one should associate with any and every devotee he finds. The devotee should be a bonafide sadhu with the following qualities of a sadhu: Shanta, Snigdha, Mahattar and Aninduka .  Shanta means one who is undriven by the causes of happiness and sadness, praise and criticism, winter and summer, etc. That is, one who has surrendered his ego at the lotus feet of Krishna and accepts everything is happening as the will of Krishna. Such a person is calm and undeterre
