Tomb of Jesus in Kashmir

These photos of the Tomb of Jesus were taken recently by a resident of New Delhi, with the permission of the local people.   She writes,

“[This]  ..  is ..  a remarkable subject, which can alter beliefs, religion and political scenario completely in a positive manner. I had read a book ‘Jesus lived in India’ by Holger Kirsten few years ago which evoked my interest in this subject. Recently I visited Kashmir and made sure to go to downtown Srinagar (which has some disturbance) and visited the shrine of Youza Asif, beloved to be Lord Jesus. I attach 2 photographs of the place which were allowed to me by local population.”

Miguel Serrano describes his visit to the tomb in Kashmir  in his book “The Serpent of Paradise”, p. 126,

“It was evening when I arrived at the tomb, and in the light of the sunset the faces of the men and children in the street looked almost sacred.  They looked like people of ancient times; possibly they were related to one of the lost tribes of Israel that are said to have immigrated to India.  The children were wearing long shirts and primitive jewels, and their eyes were very bright…

As I knelt to pray, I felt as though I were kneeling in Christ’s tomb in Jerusalem.”

Aum.

Sri Bhagavan Nityananda of Ganeshpuri

Bade Baba Nityananda was a Natha yogi of the same lineage as Matsyendranath and Gorakhnath of the Nav Nath Sampradaya (c. 9th c. AD),  Isha Natha (Lord Jesus) and Patanjali, whose guru was Nandinath (c. 200 BC).   Bade Baba left the body in 1961, and he is still pouring sweet love into all our lives today.

“The heart is the hub of all sacred places.  Go there and roam.”

Sri Gayatri Parsee Ma, Jenny Marfatia, was one of Bade Baba’s true disciples and friends.  She left the body in a cloud of golden light and love on 11th June, 2010, aged 89.  She is Aum.

“You are Guru, Brahman, Self.”

“Stay at home.”

This silence is uncanny.

Nityananda Arati

I posted an attempt at transcription from the sung version, but  I do not know Marathi.   Another devotee of Bhagavan has sent in an extremely helpful comment:

Namo Nityananda…..
Namaskaram… here I’m Mahesh Mhatre wanting to correct Shri Baba’s Aarti, pls accept it.

Yoga Practice For Senior Citizens

Maureen and Eileen are aged 75 and 80. (Their birthdays are on the same day.) Maureen started yoga aged 74, after practising aerobics in earlier years, and keeping fit walking the dogs every day. Eileen started yoga aged 59, upon her retirement. Both have spent their lives as busy working mothers. They practise safely, with correct alignments and attention to the breath.

Yoga is good for balancing blood pressure, restoring energy levels and improving breathing, digestion, cardio fitness, balance, strength and flexibility. Each yoga pose works on different energy meridians in the body and as these unblock, there is an improved sense of wellbeing and inner calm.

Yoga practice is a science of improving joint flexibility.  In addition our posture becomes very important in later years because if the bones are pressing upon each other,  osteo-porosis can set in. In a well-aligned posture, there is space between the bones.  Our balance also tends to become a challenge in later years, and yoga has exercises specifically designed to improve balance.
