When Sadhguru gave me this name Kadambini in the year 2019, I started looking at clouds more and more as the name means garland of clouds; the cloud that brings rain, Maa van vasini (resident of forest), relates to Maa Saraswati and a raga in music, although it’s not in the meaning but in the reverberation that the name creates, and I loved it.
I rejoiced looking at the array of clouds, its formation and the power it holds to invoke rains.
One morning as I was gazing at the fluffy clouds, these thoughts formed a garland in my heart which I spilled on paper as words, and today, I am sharing here as my heart-felt expression.
I hope we all relate to this in one way or the other!
The clouds that hang still in the sky,
Seem like women praying with closed-eyes,
Serene in their demeanour they talk to God
Say their prayers with hope and heart,
He hears them clear, loud and lucid
Tells them a poem that should not be a secret,
“You are the one with the power of creation,
You are the feminine that has a pure soul,
If the world thinks God was a Man,
That Man surrendered the creation to you
……………………………….My divine Woman!”

Jai Shri Hari!
Lord Shiva is called Bholenath, the one who is easily pleased!
(I believe in both of them as the same divine - HariHar!)
What's your experience with lord Shiva?
Thank you in advance.
Om Namah Shivaya!
Har Har Mahadev!
Jai Sri Hari bhai. You can never worship Mahadev thinking he is easily pleased. It’s the same Mahadev who moved his toe to crush Ravana under a mountain and yet melted when he sung Shiva Tandava Stotram. It’s the same Mahadev who pulled out one hair to create Bhairava and yet wept in agony for Sati. You can only love him because he wants you to. The eternal Yogi, the first guru, the king with no crown. Only his love can tell you the meaning of love.
Well, we all love Bhagwan so much, so in order to express your love for Bhagwan. What is your favourite bhav(emotion or feeling) that connects you with Bhagwan instantly?
Jai Sri Hari 🙏
Jai Shri Hari!
The only emotion that connects me to Bhagwan instantly is Loneliness.
Because I am never alone, Mahadev is always with me. I can feel it. I can experience it every moment when I think I am lonely.
He is always with me and I have faith that he will forever be with me.
Har Har Mahadev!
When I was child, I read somewhere that to love Bhagwan is to imbibe his values that he stands for in your being.. is the most beautiful way of loving God. Here, we all love Bhagwan dearly, have you imbibed or thinking to imbibe one of the virtue of Bhagwan in your being. What is that single most virtue close to your heart? Do share yourself.
Being fit, attractive and always smiling😉😉❤️❤️
Have you ever felt a feeling of love and oneness with inanimate things like wall or a chair as you may feel for trees and river? How can this feeling be developed?
It's a journey before you reach this state of consciousness you will see massive transformation in one's consciousness. I believe it's not a one moment when you start to feel love for all animate and inanimate beings or see divine in all things. Keep walking and see how it unfolds, if it is to. It's only with grace that one can be blessed with such state.
Jai Sri Hari 🙏
All tantra as well as Puranas refer to Lord as Bhaktisulabh - easy to attain by devotion, bhavgamyam - attained by emotions.
But is this really true?
Sri Ramakrishna Paramhamsa lived such intense devotion for so many years... But nothing happened. Only when he was about to kill himself did Devi manifest.
But after Bhairavi Brahmani taught him tantra (by telling him only then he'll be able to get Her darshan regularly so as to believe his experience to be real), he got tanmayta with Her (Devi)... And could get darshan anytime. Tantra helped him achieve that.
Even in Devi Bhagvatam course SwamiJi says, what you have to do depends on what is the definition of prapti (attainment) for you? ... Whether you just want bhava like Meera had or Tukaram Maharaj had or Tanmayta like Ramakrishna had.
If only bhava is achievable by ONLY devotion without coupling it with Tantric upasana then why do scriptures refer to Lord as Bhaktisulabh?
PS:- I'm not talking about possibility of Liberation ... But of ishta prapti.
You are dissecting a matter of the heart with the knife of your sharp intellect! Ufff!! that hurts yaar!
Ishq kijiye tab samajhiye, zindagi Kya cheez hai!😉
