Miracle of Mother Mary, Endeavour Hills, Melbourne, Australia

The statue is at the home of a Lebanese family in Endeavour Hills.  Their mother passed away in November 2013 and her photograph began to emanate the holy oil.  The statue of our Holy Mother was bought by the family in February 2014 and then it began to emanate the oil as well.

I have visited the family’s home four times since June 19, 2014.  I believe it is a genuine phenomenon because of the energy of love which is there.  It is like walking through a wall of love, intangible yet strongly palpable.  A cynical person would say I feel this as a projection of my own  faith, but I believe it is unlikely that I could conjure up such a divine and blessed state of mind, extending on through hours, with such fineness and subtlety as I have never before experienced, simply from my own wishful imagination.  I acknowledge that there is more out there in the universe than my rational mind can understand.

I also believe this is a true phenomenon because of the genuine humility  of the family.  They are kind, generous, careful and are offering service.   When the sisters and cousins chant the Hail Mary at 7 pm, it is  so beautiful.  Such devotion cannot be feigned.  They are tireless in caring for the people waiting in chairs outside.  Some of these are in mystical states of prayer and the family takes care of them

You are given a little bag with a cotton wool ball soaked in the oil.  It has a very light energy and a subtle, beautiful fragrance.  You can sit in front of the statue and simply gaze upon her.  The air seems to be filled with bright white and  golden light.  The family will give you a cushion and you can pray.  There are many who come with doubts and cameras, and few who receive with devotion, but this does not matter.  On some days 3000 people come through.  There are usually 30 – 50 there at any one time.  You ignore the hubbub and focus on Her divine presence and your mind becomes still.  At times the Hail Mary arises spontaneously from within. I felt so uplifted, radiant, happy and energised.   Different prayers arose in her presence and wisdom  and insight were given on each situation.

I felt she was saying to me,

“My child, cease your afflictions, for you are deeply loved.  Come to me, just as you are”.

Our Lady of Guadalupe said  to Juan Diago on Dec 9 or 12, 1531, as narrated by Antonio Valeriano,

“Hear me and understand well, my son the least, that nothing should frighten or grieve you. Let not your heart be disturbed. Do not fear that sickness, nor any other sickness or anguish. Am I not here, who is your Mother? Are you not under my protection? Am I not your health? Are you not happily within my fold? What else do you wish? Do not grieve nor be disturbed by anything.”

 

Hail, Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with Thee.

Blessed art Thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of Thy womb, Yesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, Holy Mary, Mary, Mary,

Pray for us now, and at the hour of our death.

Amen.

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.
