Namaste. I have exciting news. Sri Guruji Yogiraj Amarjyoti Babaji is coming to the Abode of Peace on Saturday 26 September.
Referred to as Swamiji by his disciples, Amarjyoti Babaji is a disciple of the deathless saint Babaji. The group who came to Varanasi with us in January 2013 met Swamiji and a few later went and visited His Himalayan ashram.
You are invited to come to the Abode of Peace in Cooranbong on Saturday 26 September. Although Swamiji will not be arriving until early afternoon, we will start our day with Abhishekam at 9.30am and following Abhishekam. Connect with the Divine will be taught by Shakti Durga. This is an open class.
We will have lunch from 12pm to 1pm and then program will re-comence at 1pm, specifically calling in Lord Shiva, Lord Babaji and Swamiji. We will energetically prepare so as to be more ‘yin’ and receptive to the grace. The program will be music, chanting and darshan. It is a fairly informal program, at the request of Swamiji. I am sure the energy will be sublime and the blessings will be flowing.
Babaji, disciple or incarnation of Lord Shiva is said to be immortal. Swamiji is one of only a few people in the world and possibly the only living disciple of Babaji according to His followers. If you want a little more information, below is an extract from a letter which I wrote to initiates following our first meeting with Swamiji in Varanasi, January 2013. The circumstances in which we met were unusual, a leela of Divine grace. Please let everyone know about this, it is such a rare opportunity to be in the presence of a living Saint.
“Ever since journeying to India over 10 years ago, there has been a yearning to experience the deathless saint, Babaji. Babaji is the Guru founder of the lineage which produced Paramahamsa Yogananda and many other bliss filled Gurus. Several days ago, Shiva Kata Tjuta, Hanumani and I were getting into our car at the hotel to go into Varanasi ghats and visit an ashram. The director of yoga at the hotel, a delightful man called Depak (who had attended a couple of our sessions) came running over saying “get out of the car my master is coming, you have to meet him”. He was quite adamant, and explained that his Guru had called him out of the blue (he had not seen him in months and had not expected to see him that day).
Sri Guruji Yogiraj Amarjyoti Babaji was within minutes of the hotel. He had told Deepak that he wanted to see Deepak, and the group that was staying at the hotel, namely us. I started getting tingly and thought that was a good reason to get out of the car. We went inside and within minutes a very amazing man with silver hair and a white robe came into the lobby. We talked for a few minutes, and then we invited him up to our temple in the hotel ballroom. He did not speak English, although clearly he understood it perfectly. His disciples asked if I would sing something for him, so I sang Shiva Jappa and then he sang for us, a beautiful series of mantras and bhajans he had written. While he was singing, Babaji (the original deathless saint) came out of his ajna chakra and gave me a blessing.
Deepak told us that his Guru had been a disciple of Babaji, living in the isolated Himalayas, particularly at Mount Kailash and a particular Shiva cave in Kashmir for over 12 years. He says he is the only living disciple of Babaji, and that there are only six others in existence, none of whom are in bodies any more. Many people have had visions of Babaji, as have various members of our Mission, but that is not the same as having continual instruction from his physicalised self for an extended period of time.
Deepak told us that other disciples of Babaji include Kabir, Lahiri Mahasaya, Lord Jesus (during his ‘lost years’ between ages 12 and 30 when his mission commenced), Shirdi Sai Baba and one other. The man we met does not eat, nor does he drink water, only some milk and fresh juice from time to time. He rarely sleeps, and is reputed to be several hundred years old. Deepak said he was a contemporary of Lahiri Mahasaya. Lahiri Mahasaya met his Guru Babaji in 1861.
He had to go after about 10 minutes, but asked Deepak if we would be here for a while because he wanted to come back and spend more time with us. Upon his return about an hour later, he wanted us to understand the essence that was emanating from him, the smell of roses came from his arms. We were invited to go and experience this, and when I inhaled, incandescent drops of amrita shot out of his body into my chakras and expanded my consciousness further, creating more bliss.
When he departed, he invited us to meet him again, which we will do. He then left to catch his plane to Delhi. From there he was returning to his Himalayan ashram. However through Deepak, Hanumani contacted him and asked to go with him, instead he changed his plans and is spending time in Delhi with Hanumani and Stella Maya, with my blessing and support.
All guru are one, and it was wonderful to meet this living Master, I feel that the connection we made will unfold over the years and further support the embodiment of the plan of evolution, the anchoring of the Golden Age and the bringing about a new era of peace on earth.”
