re, but you should never forget who I am. I behave

as your best friend, but you should here the limits of

respectful behavior your divine teacher to non

Here we are at a divine incarnation and not

with a guru. We should be clear. At the

best we listen to a discussion of Sri Balasai Baba:

"The Guru taught techniques and shows the way to God for."

"For God, there is nothing to show, if he already sits in front of you.

God is the embodiment of wisdom, enlightenment, love and liberation.

You need it all the way just to love and pray to Him. Then

everything comes by itself to you. "

"The guru you might teaches a method to awaken the Kundalini."

"God gives you by His grace directly enlightenment."

"The guru has students. Devotees God possesses."

"The Guru can give you the wisdom, but he himself received from God."

"God is able to you through His kindness and mercy the
Bestow wisdom directly. "

Sri Bala Sai Baba seemed a bit thoughtful and then said:

"If you are already sitting in a first class bus, why do you want in

a normal change? God is super consciousness! Wisdom

Super-confidence, wisdom comes through enlightenment. But

What is enlightenment? Enlightenment is nothing more than Gottverwirk-

lichung. What's God-realization? If you are anything else

perceive as God - if there is nothing except God for you

- That's God-realization. A Sage strives only for the

Merger with God - more is not possible. This is everything

there is to gain. Here in this place you have the extraordinary

Che lucky that the spiritual master and God are one and the same

are. Therefore listen to me hours of instruction well and treated

Me as your guru! During the period of meditation focuses on the other hand

on Me as your God! Bei Mir you have it very easy, because

there is the chance to listen to the words of God, while their

Vermögt him to see at the same time in front of you. In this Ashram

it is possible to encounter God in the outside and at the same time in

yourself. In this square is God sich- at all levels for you
TBAR and present! "

Water / electricity

Water scarcity is now in many parts of India a large

Problem. Therefore, please go to frugal with water.

Behavior towards LOCALS

Does the Indians "Yes", he dangles his head several times since then

ward, as if to bring the ears toward shoulders. Mostly

looks the gesture, as if some of the head a little loose on the neck,

and unfortunately it is our head shaking to "No" too similar. That

Indian "No": It is only briefly twitched his head, as if wool

to chase away an annoying fly on the nose. This scarce

pe gesture is usually carried a derogatory cluck of the tongue

or supported by a gesture. Distinguishing the

Indian "Yes" and "No" requires the beginning for us Europeans a

good observation skills.

In India there is no "shaking hands". We encounter the Indians

with the greeting "Balasai Ram" (I greet the divine in you).

Sometimes you will be offered during the shopping delicious tea

ten. For Indians it seems almost insulting, the tea offered
not to accept.
