‘SHREE SHREE 1008 PAABUU JEE MAHAARAAJA’ ANSWERS DEVOTEES’ QUESTIONS THROUGH THE HUMAN MEDIUM at ‘SA’/SAHA/SAI Village in the Bhiwani district of Haryana in India. This non-human entity enters the MEDIUM’s human body [MOTEE BAABAA’s SON lovingly called KAALUU] and on its own calls out the name of the person from amongst the gathering of the devotees present therein during the NYAAYA-SESSION [JUSTICE DELIVERY-SESSION], who then comes forward to be told many things/matters by this entity. People wait for many sessions for their turn to come.
Although it is claimed that all this happens due to the grace/presence of the Divine Mother called ‘JHAADDEE JWAALAA’ [BUSH FIRE] yet the knowledgeable people tell you that it is not the divine power of the DIVINE MOTHER, but the TAANTREKA SHAKTE that is present there and with the help of whom the human-medium surprises the devotee by telling things as if the human-medium knew everything about the devotee………….!
No money is charged as the fees here. This service is free of the cost...!
It is interesting to watch the devotees who are possessed by evil powers/ghosts/spirits/devil CRY OUT/DANCE furiously during the AARATEE and the NYAAYA-SESSION……!
The SAHA-DHAAMA is the sub-branch of the main centre at BAGADDA in Rajasthan…………!

The spiritual path requires the true practitioner to cleanse one’s heart and mind of all impure thoughts. Once it is achieved, the soul becomes purer and the Saadhaka or the spiritual-seeker makes faster spiritual progress. This purity of thoughts is reflected in the Saadhaka’s physical behaviour like talking/not-talking with others and so on.
There must not be a gap between thoughts and deeds. What is there in heart and mind must be reflected on one’s face. But, sometimes we Saadhakas pretend to be doing something else than what actually is going on in our hearts and minds. In other words, our intentions are different than what we actually are behaving.
This inconsistency between intention and physical behaviour creates Maanaseka [Mental] Vekaara [Illness] that actually becomes a stumbling block in the Saadhaka's spiritual progress. Such a Saadhaka does harm both to one's own self and other spiritual-seekers around.
For example, Swami Vivekananda while touring the- then Rajputana [the present day Rajasthan] came across a mahatma who did not show his ability and also did not talk about himself...! This mahatma fitted nicely into the traditionally held notion that "the one who is actually a Santa or Guru does not show his ability or talk much about himself...but those who are nothing do just its opposite."
This mahatma did not talk to anyone. He simply kept silent. All bhakta-mandalee around were busy requesting him to speak something. But, no, he would not budge! All Bhaktas made a bee-line to have his Darshana [Glimpse] and offered him various things like money, fruits, etc. and hailed him as a true mahatma!
Swami Vivekananda made an attempt to talk to this so-called silent/not-speaking-about-himself mahatma. But, this mahatma did not talk to Swami Vivekananda either. Then, Swami Vivekananda made a searching probe about this mahatma and found that this mahatma was actually no mahatma.
He found that this so-called Mahatma was simply taking the spiritual-seekers for a ride by pretending to be a mahatma by keeping silent. Then, Swami Vivekananda remarked that in India it is easy to become a mahatma! How? Just say nothingand you will be treated as the true saint/mahaatma!
By the way, this above-quoted example also shows amply: whether one shows one's ability/ talks much about oneself or not - that is not really important in spirituality. What is more important in spirituality is - one's intentions!
If a spiritual-seeker who shows one's ability or talks much about oneself with the noble intention of helping other spiritual seekers, it does not mean that the Saadhaka is not a true Saadhaka. Whereas not showing one's ability or not talking much about oneself is also no guarantee of the saadhaka being a true saint/mahatma as has been shown clearly by Swami Vivekanada himself through the above-quoted example!
One more example, we all Saadhakas are talking a lot about ourselves in terms of our experiences/problems, etc and also showing our abilities by giving solutions to various problems being asked in different forums on numerous yoga websites. Does this mean that we all are not true saadhakas? No, we all are true spiritual-seekers! We are talking about ourselves or showing our abilities because [I presume] of our noble intentions to share our yoga-knowledge with the other spiritual-seekers so that the cause of the Vedhyaa [true knowledge] and the cause of the spiritual progress for all the spiritual-seekers is realised.
Finally, I would like to add that this article has been written inter alia with the pure true noble intention of showing that let us please not generalise/oversimplify any given statement/saying/notion. Everything has pros and cons.Everything has both positives and negatives. We must look into both aspects before making any conclusions about anything.The spiritual path requires the true practitioner to cleanse one’s heart and... more
This pod is a quick look at the holy town of Pushkar and its Camel Festival that just took place in Rajasthan, India. This is my first pod... and first time out filming... so apologies for the shaky footage and beginner's editing! Despite all of this, I highly recommend a visit to Pushkar, in the middle Rajasthan's deserts, to witness the pilgrims at the ghats and enjoy the backpacker scene. Milkman is an incredible hostel to stay at, for those interested. Be warned, however, that hawkers, beggars and others will try for your money constantly. All in all, a worthwhile place to stop by on a trip to India.This pod is a quick look at the holy town of Pushkar and its Camel Festival that just... more

JAIPUR, India - Five bombs ripped through crowded parts of an ancient city in western India on Tuesday, killing at least 30 people and wounding 100 others, police said.
The explosions in Jaipur took place in markets and several other areas of the city in Rajasthan, a region dotted with palaces and temples that draw hundreds of thousands of Indian and foreign tourists every year, said A.K. Jain, a top police official in Jaipur.
Rajasthan's police chief, A.S. Gill, put the death toll at 30.
"Obviously, it's a terrorist plot," he told reporters. "The way it has been done, the attempt was to cause the maximum damage to human life."
He added bicycles may have been used in the bombings. But he did not say if the explosives were detonated by suicide bombers riding through the crowds or if the bombs had simply been planted on parked bicycles.
Authorities put New Delhi, India's capital, and Mumbai, the country's financial center, on high alert along with several other cities shortly after the bombings, which began just before 7:30 p.m.
One the blasts in Jaipur reportedly hit a market near a temple dedicated to the Hindu monkey god Hanuman. Tuesday is the day of worship set aside for Hanuman, and the temple was packed with people offering prayers on the way home from work.
The Press Trust of India news agency said another blast took place near the Johari Bazaar — the city's jewelry market, a popular destination for tourists. The tourist season ended in March and there were no immediate indications that foreigners had been caught in the explosions.
Bombings have plagued India since 2005. Last year, two explosions killed 43 people in the southern city of Hyderabad; seven bombings along Mumbai's commuter rail network killed nearly 200 people in July 2006, and three New Delhi markets were bombed in October 2005, killing 62 people.
There have also been a number of smaller explosions, and India has repeatedly blamed the attacks on Islamic militant groups backed by neighbor and rival Pakistan — an allegation Islamabad routinely denies.
While Indian officials had not yet openly blamed Pakistan-based militants for Tuesday's attack, Jaiswal, the junior home minister, suggested the bombings were connected to previous explosions
