Who is Sadguru?

Generally everyone knows about teacher/Lecturer, who educates  the pupils. He teaches the knowledge of the subjects like English, Science, Social, Maths, etc., but it is far away from the knowledge of God. He teaches about the activities in this realistic world, viz., the style of living and how to behave in the society. He teaches us how to make our self a perfect human being to live in the society. 
Whereas Guru gives us Gyan (knowledge) about God, and about spirituality. He teaches us the process to attain God or Almighty by his devine speech or advices. Guru teaches us not only how to live the life in this world but also the life after death. A person who has healthy body, wealth, fame, good family and abundant knowledge of Scripters, epics, vedas and Upanishads and he himself a great writer of scripters but he has not surrendered himself at the feet of a Guru, then he has achieved nothing. 
Sri Ramchandra Maharaj, founder of Sahaj Marg, who himself is a Sadguru …

MOHA(DELUSION)

Moha(Delusion) is a  state of mind which does not permit scope for discrimination. It is ignorant of the true facts and is the origin of egoism. It is one of the six bad vices and prevents one from knowing the truth and makes one to addict to the gratification of sensual pleasures and make us to run after the material enjoyment. This  can cause any misery in one's life and  binds the soul to the process of birth and death.  The main obstacle for one's spiritual heritage causing him to loose knowledge of his true being is Moha(Delusion). This internal enemy drags  the human from all the sides away from the soul and makes the life miserable.
Lord Srikrishna, in Bhagavath Githa in Chapter.16 verse 16,  cautious us about the effect of Moha ( Delusion).
                                   "Aneka - chitta - vibhrantah  moha-jala                                     samavritah prasanth kama - bhogeshu                                     patani matale shuchau".

LOBHA(GREED)

LOBHA(Greed) is one of  the six bad vices viz., Kama( desire/passion), Krodha(anger), Lobha (greed), Moha(bondage), Mada( ego), and Mascharya( jealous).  It literally means greed.  It is the excessive desire, especially the desire to appropriate to oneself what belongs to others that too against the principles of Dharma. It is an endless sickness.  It is the condition of the mind in which one is not satisfied even after possessing what one wants. 
Some times it  tempts people to do unethical, illegal and immoral things in the pursuit of  earning more money.  Absence of contentment even after having acquired the object of desire means the individual is greedy.
Here is a story, how a greedy person without contentment in life transformed into a great Donar and Devotee by the grace of God.
Purandara Dasa was born in a Madhwa Brahmin Community in a village near Kshemapura,  near Thirthahalli in Karnataka State.  His parents named him Srinivasa Nayaka. As he born in a  wealthy family doing b…

KRODHA(ANGER)

Krodha(Anger) means a  strong feeling of annoyance, displeasure or hostility.   Fear and sadness are primary emotions before one gets Anger. It is a  strong emotion we experience when we think someone has done wrong. Anger(Krodh) is an excessive mental turmoil on account of the obstacles in the gratification of some desire.   It is an unpleasant emotion that does more harm to the giver than to the receiver. It is one of the  six bad  vices viz., Kama(desire/passion), Krodha(Anger), Lobha(greed), Moha(bondage), Mada(ego) and Mastsarya(jealousy).  Man acquires  Kama and Krodha by birth. These are inborn qualities and  cannot be wiped off completely because they are necessary for every human being to eke out his livelihood,  but can be controlled to a  possible extent,  while leading a pious life.
In Bhagavath  Githa Lord Sri Krishna described about  Anger in Chap. 2 verse 63:-                    Krodhad bhavati sammohah - sammohat smrti  vibhramaha                                       …

WHY HINDUS WEAR TILAK(BINDI) ON THE FOREHEAD?

Hinduism is not a religion.  It is Hindu Dharma, a  way of life.   Hindu dharma has many specialties.  It is known as Sanathana Dharma.  Sanathana means always existing,  eternal,  which cannot be destroyed by any thing and ever lasting.

Dharma means, the way of life with all aachaaras or customs and rituals.  In each and every aachaara there will be a hidden scientific reason. All  acharaas are  followed for the mental and physical health;  long life;  prosperity and wealth; for strong family and social bondage.  Following the aacharaas as per our Dharma, give a fine personality, dharmic outlook and vision.

In India everyone follows aachaaras for the above mentioned psychological, physiological family relation, and  social benefit viz.,  though we follow  different religions  we belong to one Country.  It is everyone's  right and duty to understand scientifically  and logically the meaning of each and every aachaara and follow the same in  our life systematically.

It is an estab…
