Meeting Sri Kaleshwar of Penukonda
Spiritual knowledge, teachings, dreams and processes to enlightenment with Sri Kaleshwar
I knew Sri Kaleshwar many years before I knew his name or whether or not he actually exists in real life. Over the course of many years I did not give much thought to the countless dreams of a young mysterious Indian guru.
In one dream there was a powerful Indian guru who was visiting his farm house with students. The dream was so powerful and blissful that I wanted to fall back asleep again and go back into the dream. The feeling of Love and bliss stayed with me. I woke up saying, "Wow, I just had a dream about a powerful Indian guru!". It seemed so strange but yet wonderful. I wondered if this person was real, or whether he actually existed in real life? Deep down in my heart I knew he was real. But "How would I ever know?"
I had never been exposed to Eastern spirituality or gurus before. But despite my religious Christian programing, thinking of him brought about states of bliss and love. This dream was long forgotten about.
In one dream a group got off a coach in a warm foreign country. It was like a holiday trip. They entered a building with trees and plants. It had a certain atmosphere and feeling. I heard the words, "powerspot" and references to miracles and again this wonderful guru showed up. A person who is a senior student of Kaleshwar was there. Swami came and demonstrated a power or miracle in front of him. He manifested something or produced light from his hands. I never put the two dreams together, and again this one was also forgotten about.
Recently in India on the way back driving to Bangalore from Penukonda, shivers ran through my spine as I recognised the very same building from my dream. I remembered the dream and thought, "WOW!". It was such a beautiful and amazing feeling. I must have soul travelled with Swami.
These dreams were going back a long time. One early dream consisted of a smiley young Indian man like the below picture, and I was taking part in an extraordinary spiritual group process. This process vaguely involved traveling past some boundaries, digging and touching a power object. There was a beautiful fragrance and sweetness about this person, like he was my dearest friend, spiritual guide or dearest well wisher. After I woke up from the dream I missed his presence and wondered who he was.
In the dream there was construction going on with earth and open space. Maybe the early construction of the Penukonda ashram where the Shiva Sai Mandir Baba temple now stands? Again this dream was long forgotten. But I did wonder, how could my brain make up such stuff? Somewhere in time and space, past, present or future this person must exist for real. Maybe one day I would find out?
Next I was drawn to a book almost miraculously. In a book store a friend of mine picked up a book called, "The little book of how to get what you want and want what you have". He gave it to me and said, "why don't you get this?". "What! Why do I want that?". I did not know what this book was all about and neither did he! I was hesitant about buying it. However he convinced me and said, "you've got nothing to lose by getting it... it may help with your depression". At the time I was experiencing a lot of confusion and pain in my life. I said, "okay, I'll get it". I do not even think he knew why he chose it for me.
The book was written by a famous American author called John Gray who wrote the Mars and Venus books. It was full of quotes from the main version of the book and taught a meditation technique. This book helped me so much that I bought the big book of, "how to get what you want and want what you have". I practised the meditation and decharging techniques and it powerfully helped me, and for many years I longed to know where he got this knowledge from. I never thought about meditation before this book. But there was a beautiful fragrance that was there. I was connecting to some beautiful divine energy during my meditations. It turned out that John Gray was actually a student of Swami Kaleshwar! As mentioned on the inner cover of his book, Swami Kaleshwar dictated whole sections of the book for him. It was written under His direct guidance and carried His energy.
One quote in the little book read, "As the inner light of self-love dawns, your journey through darkness will be over". Indeed my journey through darkness was over. Without my knowledge I was connecting to Swami Kaleshwar and enjoying his beautiful fragrance and energy. But... still not knowing who he is.
At the time I ran away from the avadute energy. My desire and Love for Swami Kaleshwar's soul was too great. Still not knowing who he was I meditated and soul searched intensely to find an answer. Finally I remembered John Gray made reference in several of his books to his friend, Anupati Kaleshwar- who literally dictated entire sections of the book. I searched the Internet for "Kaleshwar" and found what I was looking for.
I read the book, "Divine Mystery Fort" with so much joy and happiness it was unbelievable. It was like rediscovering my long lost best friend or soul mate. I now had the name of my guru- the person who has always been with me, in my dreams- my eternal friend and master.
I read about his life and his first meeting with Shirdi Sai Baba, about his teachings, his style as a Master and about his Vaastu. I was so happy to have found such an amazing person. The Divine Mystery Fort was/is my favourite book. It is such a wonderful book... even the photos are brilliant and tell an amazing story! Monika and Phillips Love for Swami really expressed his divine fragrance through that book. I hope it becomes a world classic in spirituality! It carries a lot of divine power. Anyone holding the book or looking at the photos becomes awestruck with love.
The love and bliss of reading about my long lost best friend and soul mate was incredible. I was so happy that such a character existed on the planet- pure divinity- pure Love- pure energy and power. And so much divine truth and love is expressed through his every word, action, miracle and existence on this planet. Although an avatar of such high stature like Jesus, he was just like me- an ordinary person who came from nothing, who also came from a difficult life with big problems and illusions. But the divine had other plans for him. His whole life has a divine purpose. He is the embodiment of divine love and sweetness. But most of all, this was the person I had been searching for- for my whole life!
Next to this book ready to read next was, Gifts of Shirdi Sai Baba- The Five Elements Process. I knew exactly what this was. It was the original source of divine formulas that I had been searching for... for so long. I did the five elements process with so much love and joy. I hope these books last for infinite generations in their original form and with their original photos.
From that moment onward I was thinking of Swami Kaleshwar all the time. I had a recording of Swami singing the Ganesh mantra so beautifully in a heartfelt way. I would take a picture of Swami Kaleshwar and sing the guru mantra while looking at his picture.
Sometimes his picture and especially his eyes would become dazzling, as I would perceive him laughing and making jokes through the picture. One experience involved his face coming out the picture as a floating apparition and scaring me in a playful and laughing way. I now perceive the divine energy and spark in his eyes and picture as Mother Divine. I can see her smiling through him when I look at his picture. He always looks dazzling in his pictures, like the following picture of Swami Kaleshwar. Spiritually he is like my best friend and Mother.
I started practising the mantras of the Five Elements Process, which is a beautiful meditation process that involves charging and purifying your soul with each of the five elements, making a connection with Shiva (God the Father). Connecting to the elements is the same as connecting to God. This was the first process and initiation into Swami Sri Kaleshwar's teachings. With all my devotion (and others like me too) we managed to pull Swami to London. Sometimes avatars are drawn to places where there are people from their previous lives or people with strong devotion. If you step towards Him he will take 99 steps toward you. He came and did some big spiritual processes with us in London.
Each person has their own story and experiences to tell. One of my friends from London works as a therapist. One of her clients left a book about swami on a table. Sri Kaleshwar would then be seen to be walking around. Even while she was with clients he would appear in one of the chairs. The clients would ask afterwards, "who was that Indian man?" and others, "who was that Indian man I saw walking around?". She had to say, "I don't know". But now that she does know, she is so happy to have found such as divine miraculous beautiful person.
Swami came to London in November 2005 to give a talk within weeks of me/us discovering him. I was already doing the first Earth Mantra from the Five Elements Process using a plant to charge/decharge. So I decided to bring some of my family members along to be healed by him. I had faith in him that if I brought them along it would be enough to heal them- that even just having darshan of him would be enough in their lifetime. I knew that some sort of miracle would happen in his presence. I told them a bit about him and they did not know what to expect, and neither did I. I just could not wait to meet this beautiful divine wonderful being.
I met my parents and family at the venue. It was a lovely set up with high divine vibrations and bhajan singing. I was very impressed with the bhajan music and the people singing. It was nice to see other spiritual people there too. My family such as my mother, aunt and cousin came and sat down. We watched a video of Swami Sri Kaleshwar and I was so excited at the prospect of seeing Him. Finally after a long wait my mother said, "there he is!", and on the stage was Himself- a very divine being. He stood for a while and then sat down in a chair on the stage. My aunt was very negative and had some crazy expectations. She was expecting some sort of elaborate motivational speech. But when he started speaking, they did not understand what he was talking about. Although a slight challenge I completely grasped and understood what he was talking about, because I read his books and new about spirituality. They did not, and hence became frustrated.
Swami asked who was doing the 1st Earth element mantra, looking around smiling. I was too scared to say that it was me. He got someone to stand up and say the 1st Earth element mantra.
Someone asked Swami Sri Kaleshwar a simple question. He did not answer straight away and said, "what?!" My aunt became even more frustrated, and he made it even more intense by pretending that he did not know what the question was and just stood there. Really his concentration was on working behind the scenes- working with the energy and with our souls. My aunt ended up leaving. My mum also asked if she could go, "It's up to you, but I would prefer you to stay". My mum said to my aunt, "I can't just leave him... he's my son". So she stayed, but she was making negative comments. I felt guilty for bringing them. During the bhajan singing it was like they were playing the music against the negativity. Bhajan music carries a lot of high vibrations. As a Shiva song was playing powerfully, Swami put her into a beautiful mystic trance.
The song finished and Swami said he works better with people while they are asleep, as my mum went into a deeper trance. He said it was like a form of hypnotism he was doing. He said if anybody comes to him for help, he asks what time they sleep. Then he works with them while they are asleep. My mum then stayed asleep for most of the event.
During the talk I looked at my Mum who was asleep with her eyes completely closed. When I looked at her- although she was deep asleep with her eyes closed she smiled at me in a mystic way, I nearly jumped out of my chair in shock. Swami was staring straight at me. He was working with us on the soul level. That smile and awareness in my Mother was induced my him as he was working with us to create a bond to dissolve whatever negativity was there. Then for what seemed like 3-4 minutes Swami was just looking intensely straight into my eyes, transferring divine energy to me. I tried working out what he was doing, but he was fully concentrated. Swami gave a small process for us to do on new moons and full moons. When I walked out I was a new and different person.
Swami said, his only wish is that his students become greater than him. It is not healthy to always be dependant on Him. This was all Jesus wanted in His life too, to create powerful masters that would do greater things than him. This is what Jesus meant in the bible when he said, "one day you will do greater things than me". In all of history it has been very difficult to create powerful masters on the globe. But now is the right time. I was relying on Swami too much for even silly things. Swami also said, "you need a soul mate!" But he said it is okay to have the Master as your soul mate.
I wanted to speak with him face to face, so he gave me a private interview in a dream. He got a student to set out a table with chairs outside and we sat down. But I wanted to see him face to face... physically. I was under the illusion of, "how can I call myself a student of His if I have never spoken to him face to face?" So in the end I managed to get a private face to face interview with him in London. I had a massive peace of paper full of questions. This was my biggest opportunity in the world. There was no one else in the world I would rather have an interview with. It was like meeting my favourite celebrity in real life. We also had a meditation together.
I like to watch how he interacts with others in a group setting. He has a lot of time for really helping and healing people with many problems, even if the problems may seem silly. The important thing I learnt, if you ever have an opportunity to ask a divine soul for something- it should be always be something spiritual.
When Swami is in the energy he often asks, "what do you want?" and you have to think on your feet or be very prepared to say instantly what you want. The best thing to ask for is Enlightenment. It can be Love, creating spiritual masters on the globe, washing out negativity or experiencing the real Bliss. Enlightenment means all the time you are in Bliss, so that covers everything. What more could you possibly need and want, if all the time you are in bliss? When you are enlightened you do not have any financial problems. When you have Enlightenment, you have everything. All the silly things are resolved or are less important when you have Enlightenment and your life is full of Bliss. When you have everything, what more could you possibly want?
The master is always with you in your heart, and you are in his heart. You do not need to speak to him face to face or be in his physical presence. He is always with you. He is always well connected. He is everywhere. Some masters can be in several places at the same time. One incarnation of Shridi Sai Baba had dinner with 10 different people separately in different locations at the same time. When each of the groups got together and told each other- there was a lot of aruments and fighting, as they thought everybody else was telling lies. Until the Guru told them that he was with each of them everywhere at the same time.
The Master can split off a seed of his soul and turn it as an angel to be with you always, to protect you and to ensure your spiritual success. When the work of the angel is finished it comes back again to the master. Saints can also leave a peace of their souls with their Samadhis, so when they take off from their bodies their bones turn as super power objects in the world to give healings and blessings. Shirdi Sai Baba said he would be active from his Samadhi. His bones will speak to discuss your welfare. If you think of him he is with you.
The way Swami works with large groups is so masterful and genius. Even his jokes and teasing is masterful. Everything he says or does has significant meaning or infinite multiple meanings. He has the accumulated experience of being a spiritual master from many lifetimes. He has the experience of a King in the way he works with large groups of people in a spiritual way, really taking care of each person individually like they were his own children.
He hears your prayers, and he reads you mind. He knows you better than you know yourself. He knows your past. He knows your present. He gives insights into your future. When you talk to God he always listens in. I try not to bother him directly, but he would always respond to my call for help and advice instantly like a Mother. He is always guiding me. For example recently I was laying down and I said my self curiously, "am I being egotistic?", and swami laughed and he said, "yes" in a loving way. He was in his chair in Penukonda. I saw him in my third eye. He is always working with us- even without our awareness. I was actually devastated and made the commitment to kick out my ego for good. Whenever you start to feel slightly powerful your ego can sneak in without your knowledge, such as thinking to yourself "I am the healer" or "I am great". If you start talking like that, you are in trouble. None of it is you. It is all Him using you as an instrument. You (I) are nothing. But He is everything, and you are piece of Him. A biblical sayings reads, "God exalts the humble and humbles the exalted". In other words if you start being egotistic he will take everything away from you. But if you are humble and surrendered to His will, you can then become a channel of His supreme love, power and grace.
Another funny example of him being present and connected everywhere... I was thinking about how Swami likes mary people when they start to get close to each other. As I made the thought I saw him smile from his photo as I was walking past. The master knows everything. He is one with God.
The master is also very clever working through dreams. He can give feedback, compliments and answers to any questions through dreams. Spiritual processes also take place without your knowledge on the astral plane. If I ever have a dream about someone, I generally believe it to actually be them. Your dreams are very real. It is reality which is fake. You can learn a lot about people through dreams. The dreams and scenarios of dreams are real astral worlds or energy planes that are created for our souls to work out and enjoy their karma. Dreams have always been regarded as a form of therapy.
One time I dreamed I was recommending a certain type of pizza to one of my work colleagues and was really trying to sell the pizza to her. She had the same dream and told me about it. In a joking way she said that she was not interested in my pizza and would prefer it if I would stay out of her dreams in future! :) She knew that it was not a normal type of dream. Swami has been in my dreams infinite times. Mostly when I do not remember. If the master really wanted to communicate with you, he can also send telepathic messages or even appear to you.
Just thinking on the master is a form of sadhana. Through the mechanism of samyama you are absorbing huge divinity. Your aura becomes filled with the energy that you focus on until you become like the object of your meditations. That is why a lot of students without their notice end up looking like their Masters, speaking like them, carrying their energy or even having characteristics of their body language. The person becomes one with their Master, embodying his energy and carrying it to the word with its divine fragrance.
I was thinking about this when I was in the presence of Swami Vishwananda, who himself looks like an older looking version of his Master- Babaji. He has a certain divine smile and radiance that I have seen before in Babaji. That is when he told us about this mechanism. He said he has met a lot of different Masters, and their students all look them. I think he was trying to turn it around on us :)
Swami's Love is so great. Although you may have a crazy monkey mind, he says your soul is so beautiful. He does not just see the person, but he sees our souls too. Just looking at somebody he knows all their problems, their past, present and future astrology.
The knowledge that Swami Kaleshwar teaches comes from ancient palm leaf manuscripts that Shirdi Sai Baba directed him to. Swami spent many years mediating in the Penukonda mountain caves under the direct guidance of Shirdi Sai Baba. This was to practice and test the ancient knowledge that was written in the palm leaf manuscripts by India's greatest saints. It is this ancient spiritual knowledge that Swami is presently teaching to his students and revealing to the world.
Knowledge about the science of the soul and how to connect to the Guru Parampara Dattatreyer (the God head), Shiva and Mother Divine. How to become a powerful spiritual master with great capacity to heal and enlighten other souls. How to become a soul scientist. How to connect to and develop your relationship with Mother Divine to receive her boons- in physical form. Knowledge and channels that are linked with the energy of Jesus, Buddha and ALL the divine saints and maharishis. In all of history this knowledge has been kept secret and revealed only to a few. But now the right time has come to bring this information to the globe. Only with Shakti (power) is it possible to make a difference in the world.
Before I even knew anything about Swami Sri Kaleshwar or India, I was experimenting with Kriya Yoga. I borrowed my parents room one time to practice Kriya Yoga- because it was the only place I would not be disturbed. I was sitting practising Kriya Yoga in front of a wardrobe of mirrors chanting OM up and down into my chakras. Suddenly I had a divine experience. A past life memory. My perception of myself changed in the mirror. Suddenly I was an Indian sage with a massive dark beard, turban and wearing long ear rings. I was among the purest and holiest saints with the highest level of spiritual attainment. I was in a palace at the base of a mountain. But what was even more amazing was that not only were we pure holy spiritual people of the highest nature, we were also in a palace - the Emperor's palace. We were sainthood AND royalty. It was a very strange feeling. I was in the inner court and inner circle of an Emperor King.
Was there ever such a Kingship, where saints and Kings were alike? In the whole world and eternity, how could I ever research such a past life memory? Was it just a grandiose illusion? I decided that I should remember this experience, as one day I might discover the truth behind it.
It was not until my 3rd visit to Penukonda that I discovered the Gagan Mahal- the ancient ruins of a small palace situated at the base of the Penukonda mountain directly next to the ashram. This was the summer palace of the Indian Emperor King, Krishna Devarayer, going back 500 years ago. The ashram and the palace are situated within the walls of the Penukonda fort. This was the palace of my past life memory.
Krishna Devarayer was one of the holiest and purest of kings. He did a lot of amazing spiritual work in India- he built hundreds of temples, shiva lingams, and he even built the famous golden Tirimula temple in Tirupati where the Lord Venkateswara statue is situated. He did much great spiritual work on the globe. He was famous for his love and compassion- even to his enemies. During his reign, India was the richest country in the world! Krishna Devarayer was part of the ancient mission to bring the spiritual knowledge to the world. He was protector of the ancient knowledge. But the time was not right for this knowledge to successfully be released and spread to the world. Sri Kaleshwar is now continuing where Krishna Devarayer left off, under the direct guidance and instrumentation of Shirdi Sai Baba.
If the world was ruled by Love... if those making decisions would do so on the basis of Love only then we will see the world change in a Loving way. But our leaders and the structure of society is the reflection and embodiment of our inner selves and mass collective ego. As we change, everything else will have to change. In ancient spiritual times Kings if they were not fully enlightened themselves they had spiritual advisor's. Imagine if someone like Jesus was your spiritual advisor and you were a king, president or a powerful leader.
In spirituality there have been many Kings who once having enjoyed their kingship, wealth or pleasures decided to go down the spiritual path of enlightenment- to really know the reality and the real love and bliss. One example is Vishvamitra who discovered the Gayatri mantra. Buddha was another one... and of course Krishna Devaraya. There are numerous cases in spiritual history of kings who become saints.
It is possible to have a loving, healthy, holistic and stable kingdom. Provided that the King, Queen or leadership has true inner love and wealth, to live their lives for the happiness and well being of all- giving all and demonstrating true love for all. Ideally that person should be fully god-realized and enlightened- giving their whole lives for all. One single family, all being children of the King- children of Love. Very similar to God's kingdom at home.
Sri Kaleshwar is certainly the King of our hearts- a man of pure love and spiritual power. I believe he is a Prema Sai Shakti Avatara- an pure incarnation of Love and Shakti. Maybe in the next lifetime he will come back as, Prema Sai Baba- the prophesied incarnation of Shakti who will show everyone that they are a piece of God.
Swami's love and hard-work for the people is unbelievable, to whoever comes in front of him. He literally works 24 hours a day. People come to him with all kinds of problems... for healing, help and advice. There have been hundreds and thousands of miraculous healings. These range from snake/scorpion bites to miraculously healing cancer when a person only has weeks or days to live. He is the man of great miracles.
When everyone is asleep he meditates at his fire duni- working with the souls and purifying the negativity. The section where his fire and swing is, there is a Hunuman statue- the deity of the air. That whole section when you stand there is like a broadcasting station of energy that he uses for distance healing. He uses the fire and air element to really do his spiritual healing work in the world.
Because India is 5 1/2 hours ahead of my country, I would do my meditation in the evening time at the same time Swami is active doing his distance healing work. He thinks of all his students one by one sending all their negativity into the fire. Sometimes I would feel the bliss of being washed in his divine fire of Love- and all of my negativity being pulled out.
Mystery of Penukonda Fort
Some great energy is hidden in Penukonda. Who knows what the Penukonda mystery is all about? Powerspots, power objects and samadhis may add to the energy. All the maharishis meditated there. Also the ashram is built to perfect Vaastu- the science and architecture of creating great spiritual and prosperous vibrations that can uplift a person in every way.
As soon as you walk into the grounds you have passed powerful samadhis and powerspots. Just sleeping there you are absorbing huge spiritual vibrations. Perhaps it is the Sri Chakra of the globe, the home of Mother Divine and Shiva, or maybe it is the entrance into another world, or the mass powerspot of ALL the saints and maharishis combined. Who knows what secrets Penkonda holds? Maybe the secrets are infinite?
When walking outside Penukonda Fort there are many remnants of ancient buildings and temples. There is a big beautiful statue of Krishna Devarayer on a horse and many pictures of him all around the towns. But not only that, there are vibrational remnants of a great kingdom. Many familiar feelings came to me when walking around Penukonda. Some were depressive feelings. That may be one reason he asked us to walk round Pekukonda after a big process, in order to spread the divine energy and vibrations. One dream I had years ago, I was lost and drifting aimlessly down a big long road like I was a stuck spirit, only to meet the very familiar Indian character now known as Swami at the end of it. The feeling I had when walking North from the ashram toward the Krishna Devaraya statue was that this was the same road. Maybe I got killed one time and was wondering aimlessly, until I got met by Swami.
Also looking at the mountain from outside the Penukonda Fort, from the North/North East of the ashram. It was a very familiar sight. I often dreamed about beautiful mystic mountains. I was travelling to one mountain in a dream. I really wanted to climb the top of the mountain and visit a temple where some knights or saints have been living there for hundreds of years. Swami turned up in my dream smiling and started talking to me about this, about how many people have come and wanted to do that. There have been many dreams of this divine place.
Shirdi Sai Baba's temple in Penukonda
Penukonda is where Shirdi Sai Baba's temple now is. Shirdi Sai Baba is the big boss. He is a supreme soul. He is doing some amazing work on the planet. All this is Him. He is the highest supreme person- an embodiment and incarnation of Shiva, and Dattatrayer- the Guru Parampara and the God Head. However, in order to initiate changes and help the world he needs Shakti. That is where Sri Kaleshwar comes into it. It is like a Shiva Shakti mechanism that is going on. Baba is Shiva and Sri Kaleshwar is the Shakti.
Sri Kaleshwar is completely surrendered to Him, in carrying out His mission of creating spiritual masters on the globe, uplifing the worlds vibration, and powerfully purifying and washing out all negativity in people. To bring Shirdi Sai Baba to the globe. All the maharishis wanted Shirdi Sai Baba to take care of the globe in this coming yuga. He is appointed the big boss. This is the yuga of love where everybody will be serving each other and there will be great understanding among mankind.
Although Jesus is the number one boss and leading spiritual person on the planet, his work will now focus on other planets too. However he will also be doing some unbelievable hard work on the planet.
One time I had the whole Baba temple to my self and was in front of Shirdi Sai Baba- his murthi- a big Baba statue. This often appears to be alive. You can perceive all types of expressions on his face- surprise, boredom, funny faces- sometimes the eyes appear to be open- sometimes closed- sometimes meditating- sometimes aware of you- sometimes ignoring you- sometimes smiling. He is completely active, conscious and aware from his statue. He is in the statue or at least a part of his soul is. It has become extremely powerful over the years. All types of miracles occur. Aarati and abishaks are performed to the Baba murthi.
The Jesus statue is the same. One time Swami put us in front if it and spoke to the statue. Then as we were meditating I would look at the statue. The statue would appear have the biggest smile, although when you look closely the statue is not smiling. Sometimes the statue will seem to disappear and you can see Jesus through the statue- all the time he is smiling. After the meditation Swami said that he had actually put us in front of Jesus.
When I came to Penukonda for the first time I wanted to see that Baba statue- or rather I wanted to see Baba. It was such as beautiful experience entering the main ashram garden at 5:00 am, experiencing the divine vibrations and entering the Mandir. Baba was being washed. When I saw the statue it was as though he looked up to say, "you're here". When the priests wash the statue- he is washing you. It is like a karma yoga mechanism. If you wash him (his statue) he will wash you (ie purify your karma). Aarati is also performed whereby a flame is waved in front of his eyes. The flame is then charged by his His soul energy, and looking at the flame you receive huge blessings and shaktipat (transmission of divine energy).
To have the whole temple to yourself would be a very rare occasion, as one day soon it will be difficult to get inside that temple. In a few years time there will be a 3 week waiting list to get in there. Then you will only have a few minutes to have darshan at a distance and then leave.
When I was spending time standing in from of this statue and pranaming to Him, I had a small glimpse as to what he was up to, a brief look into his mind. I saw that everything created and operated at the ashram was all His doing. He is the big boss and genius working behind the scenes. He is growing and forging something great almost secretly- until one day it will be ready to release to the globe. He is currently training everybody without their knowledge and through Swami to be great masters and healers in the world and to spread the Love and knowledge- with divine power!
It is so wonderful how the energy of that place works. Everybody works selflessly together to make amazing things happen. The Penukonda fort, especially areas including the palace and the Shiva Sai Mandir is very divine and powerful. The divine energy of that place will command on the globe. I love hearing the bharjans played in the mandir with their drums. The drums are like Shiva's drums. It makes me think about the kind of music they would play at the Kings palace. Music can carry a lot of energy and divine vibrations. It can help transform and change the world. One day the music of that place will play on a grand scale throughout the world. It will be part of a chain reaction, of spreading the divine energy to the world.
There are 3 main spiritual characters in my life. Jesus is like a strict Father. Sri Kaleshwar is my best friend, guru and Mother, and Shirdi Sai Baba is like a really cool grandfather. How lucky am I and you to have a relationship with these characters!
May divine Love, truth and peace expand throughout the world and beyond!
