Live Translation of Satsang

Hey and jsca to all!!

Many of us need translation for Deepakbhai's satsang. We are very lucky to have a mahatma do that for us. On the bottom of the blog (near the music downloads) is the video translation of pre-recorded morning satsangs. This translation will also be used for upcoming Parayan in Adalaj. We all will benefit from this translation and understand the deep Gnan that Deepakbhai is giving to us.

The translation is embedded on the bottom of the blog. Here is the link to the site where this is being hosted: www.zaplive.tv/web/shuddha (Here you can register and create a free account which will enable to you to chat live to mahatmas during satsang.

Please use this great resource to progress!!!!

Regular Local Satsang to Awesome Youth satsang

JSCA!

This Sunday there was a local satsang in Southern Pines, NC. A few youth arrived and we thought that this was the perfect time to do youth satsang and discuss common problems. We watched Niruma's english shibirs, and then a fantastic DVD of youth shibir with Deepakbhai. In this DVD Deepakbhai discussed many problems in this satsang that were the answers to many of our dailty problems. Throughout the satsang we paused the DVD and discussed what Deepakbhai said. It was a positive influence for all of us. These where some of the things that we thought were really helpful.

1. Progress in Gnan and Positivity:

Deepakbhai said... The time you spend with me, you are in awareness and you feel the positivity in you. This is because I am pulling you out of the "ditch of negativity and impurity" and all my energies are focused on pulling you out so you can start on the path of purity and positivity again. As soon as you all the shibirs are done and I leave, the awareness gradually decreases and you fall into the ditch again because their is no purusharth (effort to remain in the Pure Self) on your side. Then next year I pull you out of the same ditch again. Therefore, all my energies are being wasted and all of you are not progressing in the way of positivity and purity.

This gave all us inspiration and motivation to be positive and make sure we don't do anything to hurt any living being.

2. TV is a BIG OBSTACLE

I know that all of you have heard in many satsangs that TV is bad and this is just repeating this fact. While watching satsang we paused the DVD and discussed how bad TV was and how to avoid it. The number 1 problem with TV is that it is filled with sexuality and this is a very negative influence. All of us realized that the number one reason we watch TV is when we are bored...to battle boredom we decided that we could play sports or join clubs or do community service. Anything positive that would keep us away from TV.

3. Fashion and Clothing

Fashion and clothing isn't a very big problem with guys, but sometimes it can be. I know it was for me, I was obsessed with wearing Abercrombie, American Eagle, etc. I would be so angry if my parents wouldn't buy me designer clothes. Sometimes I still want to buy those kinds of clothes, but I have to keep telling myself that spending LOADS OF MONEY on clothes isn't worth it. No one really cares what you are wearing. Deepakbhai said that if we used the time that we waste in fashion in staying positive and applying Gnan, then we would never be unhappy.

4. Obeying Parents

Deepakbhai also stressed the importance of obeying your parents. Your parents have done so much things for you. They brought you into this world, raised you, etc. We should never forget what all they have done for us. He told all the youth to obey and respect your parents.


Below is an experience from the satsang:


I have learned that trying to impress yourself you are also impressing the others around you and that do not want that kind of attention. Also, I understood that watching TV decreases your awareness and it is the worst thing in the world for spiritual progress. TV should be used only to watch satsangs and sometimes play {healthy} video games. In order to do this you have to ask for strength from Dada Bhagwan.

Another important thing that came into my understanding was to NEVER DISOBEY YOUR PARENTS, because they are basically your Gods. Jai Sat Chit Anand!

How our inner ego sometimes misjudges a person

hey and jsca!

This is a very powerful story that someone emailed me. It is about how our ego can hurt someone just by us judging people by their outer appearance. Please read:
____________________________________________________________________

A lady in a faded grey dress and her husband, dressed in a home-spun suit walked in timidly without an appointment into the Harvard University President's outer office. The secretary could tell in a moment that such backwoods, country hicks had no business at Harvard and probably didn't even deserve to be in Harvard.

"We want to see the President" the man said softly.

"He'll be busy all day" the secretary snapped.

"We'll wait" the lady replied.

For hours the secretary ignored them, hoping that the couple would finally become discouraged and go away. They didn't and the secretary grew frustrated and finally decided to disturb the president.

"Maybe if you see them for a few minutes, they'll leave" she said to him.

The President, stern faced with dignity, strutted toward the couple. The lady told him "We had a son who attended Harvad for one year. He loved Harvard. He was happy here. But about a year ago, he was accidently killed. My husband and I would like to erect a memorial to him, somewhere on campus.

The President wasn't touched...He was shocked.
"Madam" he said, gruffly ,"we can't put a statue for every person whoa attended Harvard and died. If we did, this place would look like a cemetery."

"Oh, no," the lady explained quickly, "we don't want to erect a statue. We thought we would like to give a building to Harvard."

The President rolled his eyes. He glanced at the gingham dress and homespun suit, and then exclaimed,"A building! Do you have any earthly idea how much a building costs? We have over seven and a half million dollars in the physical buildings here at Harvard."

For a moment the lady was silent. The president was pleased. Maybe he could get rid of them now. The lady turned to her husband and said quietly, "Is that all it costs to start a university? Why don't we just start out own?" Her husband nodded. The president's face wilted in confusion and bewilderment. Mr. and Mrs. Leland Stanford got up and walked away, traveling to Palo Alto, California where they established the University that bears the name:

STANFORD UNIVERSITY...a memorial to a son that Harvard no longer cared about.


Most of the time WE JUDGE PEOPLE BY THEIR OUT APPEARANCE, which can be misleading. And in this impression, we tend to lose our potential good friends, employees, or customers.

REMEMBER!!!

In our life, we seldom get people with whom we want to share and group our thought process. But because of our inner EGO we miss them forever.

IT IS YOU WHO HAVE TO DECIDE WITH WHOM YOU ARE GETTING ASSOCIATED IN DAY TO DAY LIFE.

SMALL PEOPLE TALK ABOUT OTHERS,

AVERAGE PEOPLE TALK ABOUT THINGS,

GREAT PEOPLE TALK ABOUT IDEAS.
