Through sadhana the Bauls transform worldly love into divine love, individual love into Universal love, and conditional love to unconditional love. Baul means an eccentric who has conquered all external sense perceptions. He is totally absorbed in Divine love.”

The word ‘Baul’ originates from the word ‘Batul’ in Sanskrit.‘Baul’ in Bengali essentially means an eccentric who has conquered all external sense perceptions. He is totally absorbed in divine love.

Sarita’s Blog – Tantra: Transformation of Poison into Nectar

A heavy and dramatic situation at the age of 14 opened into a mysterious and miraculous space of benediction. In searching for the answer as to what happened, I found myself drawn to meditation as a spiritual path, and to Tantra, where I found the answer. In finding this answer, I simultaneously found the answer and the healing for all the misalignments that plague our world.

Osho Quote: On Poetry

Osho talks on poetry. As an example he takes a haiku by Basho and a poem by Tennyson.

Just the other night I was reading the famous haiku of Basho, the Zen mystic and master. It does not look like great poetry to the Western mind or to the mind which has been educated in a Western way. And now the whole world is being educated in the Western way; East and West have disappeared as far as education is concerned. Listen to it very silently, because it is not what you call great poetry but it is great insight – which is far more important. It has tremendous poetry, but to feel that poetry you have to be very subtle. Intellectually, it cannot be understood; it can be understood only intuitively.

Ask Sarita : Does Physical illness have spiritual reasons?

Dear Sarita.

Is it true that all physical illnesses have spiritual reasons? For instance one gets sick and dies in a very bad condition and suffers from disease and struggling with life miseries for ages until death but another one has a very silent and wealthy life and dies in good physical condition and health.

Do all these happen due to their personal acts and behaviors in life? Are all these, consequences of their own crowded minds and busy and conflicting thoughts and behaviors? Can we say “for example” they are in bad situation because they were bad people, And these are all reactions of their prior actions?

A poem by Madhuri

The Wind and the Wizard

Long ago there was a wizard
Who tried to calm a wild blizzard.
He spun and yelled and hopped a lot
But none of that could help a jot –
The snow it whirled and wailed like doom
Around that little humble room.

Inspirational Film – Dangerous Beauty

This film is a triumph. Through the experience of a high class and highly respected courtesan, it exposes many interesting elements of life in Venice during the turbulent time of the Inquisition. Through this film we can sense a society which openly displayed a propensity for a veritable feast of sensual love, through the poetry of its language, fashion, arts, and including the art of sexual love. It brings into question whether the act of marriage holds any validity beyond the convenience of security and the paternal lineage. And it exalts true love with the overall feel good message, “love conquers all obstacles”

Visible Soul, Invisible Body – Roxana

Today, I woke up at 6am and read the following words of Osho.

“The body is the visible soul and the soul is the invisible body”.
“A totally new kind of education is needed in the world where fundamentally everybody is introduced into the silences of the heart – in other words, into meditation – and where everybody has to be prepared to be compassionate to his or her own body”.
I was captivated by the mood of beauty and the appreciation of mystery in his words. Once again my chosen path was affirmed.

Dhyandeepa – A journey of reclaiming my orgasmic potential

For decades I had been a slave to sexual fantasies in my mind. This was the result of the way I learned to masturbate, my initiation into sexuality, the porn movies I had watched as a teen-ager, and the shame I felt around my sexuality which led me to repress my true desires and expression. Of course, these were almost 100% directly linked to my ability to have an orgasm. This is the story of my journey to reclaim my orgasmic potential.
