Advanced course with Rishi Nityapragyaji

This navaratri I wanted to go to Banglore Ashram. I had a thought in mind lets book our seat pretty early so I can go to banglore ashram. But the problem was about the leave. Well these all are the reasons. I did not put my 100% or may be my luck was something different. I decided to attend advanced course during this navratri time at Pune Ashram. Rishi Nityapragyaji means it was like amazing, beautiful roller coaster for all of us. I met one of my school friend in the course and then we were together all the time. We had lots of fun in the course. Everyday in the evening Rishiji used to do Gurupuja, Lalitasahasranam as a part of Navaratri celibrations. After that there used to satsang time. Rishiji used to sing very beautiful bhajans. Along with bhajans some beautiful songs like rat kali ek khwab .., tu bin bataye.. , duba duba rahata hu.., tuze dekh deh sona... It was like feeling the top of the world. On the second last day I got a chance to hug Rishiji. He looked towards me and smiled then I too smiled. When we finished the course that night me and my friend met Rishiji. I asked Him how to improve meditation so that I could go into deep meditation. He answered that remove rajas quality by doing some exercise , seva etc.
Secondly I asked how to remove bad habits. On this He replied for that do sankalapa and take a vow that you will not indulge in bad habit for 20 days. After 20 days again do same. Like this do for 2 months and you will get rid of your bad habits.

In this advanced course Rishiji taught us many beautiful things. At very first day He asked all of us everybody happy, are you all get accommodation and is everything set, comfortable. Then He said COMFORT IS NOTHING BUT JUST STATE OF MIND. This statement directly went into my head, heart :) Rishiji told us that using our 5 senses on body our mind captures the outer world's situations, people, things. Moreover perceiving power is different of each person. We should not get stuck in people, situation and things. CIC is important in life, i.e Connectedness with Master, using Intelligence, and Commitment. I would like to specifically mention one thing here that I came to know in while listening Guruji's talk. Guruji was telling that someone asked Him that, Guruji I have a very worst habit. My eyes are like X-rays. I look towards everybody without clothes. I am suffering from this bad habit and even if I go to temple I see god and goddess without clothes. Then Guruji's reply on that was beautiful. Guruji replied to that person you give your 100% Dont just look without clothes. Remove their skin and see and then remove their bones as well. This is a very simple and straight forward explanation to remove lust. Course finished on saturday and on sunday there was Ganesh and Navgraha homa. Few veda boys from banglore ashram were present in all these days for lalita sahsranam, and for all homas. I attended Ganesh and Navagraha homa. After that me and my friend was about to leave ashram but we were not feeling to leave ashram.

With Gratitude n love,
Jai Gurudev.
