"सारे ज्योतिषी बेकार है ,यह ठगी का व्यापार है


"सारे ज्योतिषी बेकार है ,यह ठगी का व्यापार है सब के सब धंधा करते है जिसको जैसा बन पड़ता है लूटता है ."आप फलां  रत्न पहन लीजिये ,फलां पूजा ,अनुष्ठान करा लीजिये ,आपके कष्ट दूर हो जायेंगे " बस फिर क्या है .इतना सुन कर लालच या मज़बूरी ,ज्यादातर मज़बूरी और तकलीफ में पड़े लोग खर्च करते है और अंत में उनके हाथ आती है निराशा "  गुरुदेव के पास आकर अनिल ने कहा .

डॉ अनिल वास्ती जो हमारे ध्यान केंद्र में नियमित आते है उसने कहा.

 मै भी पास में बैठा था .अनिल ने विषय छेड़ा तो सत्संग में विचार करने का मुद्दा आया .

"यार अनिल तू  कितने ज्योतिष के पास गया है और क्या क्या किया है पहले तो ये बता .सारा सुन सुन केर सिर्फ बुद्दिवादी तर्क दे रहा है की अपने स्वानुभव से बोल रहा है .आजकल ज्योतिष को गलत साबित करने का ठेका भी तथाकथित बुद्दिजीवी प्रगतिशील लोग ले करके बैठे है ,कुछ चेनल वाले भी टी आर  पी बढाने के लिए इस प्रकार की बहस आयोजित करते है .कंही उसकी बात को सुनकर तो नहीं बोल रहा है ."   मैंने भी आगे आकर कहा .
आखिर ज्योतिष का अध्ययन मै पिछले ग्यारह साल से कर रहा हूँ और लोगों को उनके कस्ट दूर करने के उपाय भी बताता हूँ .

"गया  तो मै किसी के पास नहीं हूँ पर मेरे पास बहुत मरीज आते है जो इस प्रकार की बातें करते है .मै उनके
नाम पते सब बता सकता हूँ " अनिल ने कहा .

मैंने कहा "लाभ सबको अपने अपने मन के हिसाब से मिले वैसा जरुरी नहीं है .जैसे डाक्टरी में है , कैसा डाक्टर है ,क्या अनुभव है ,कैसी दवा है ,मरीज कितने नियम से दवा खाया है ,मर्ज किस स्थिति में है ,इन सबकी विवेचना  से ही आप हिसाब निकाल सकते हो की आपके  मरीज     को कितना लाभ कितने और कैसे इलाज के बाद मिलेगा .वैसा ही ज्योतिष में भी है.
"अच्छा जिसको तेरे इलाज से लाभ नहीं मिलेगा वो भी तो यही बात डाक्टरी के बारे में बोल सकता है ."सब हंस दिए .



अनिल बोला "नहीं डाक्टरी के बारे में नहीं बोल सकता .बीमारी और इलाज का एक विज्ञानं है .कोई भी इलाज नहीं कर सकता .हाँ मै झोलाछाप डाक्टर का नहीं बोल सकता ."

"झोला  छाप ज्योतिषी भी है . ज्योतिष भी विज्ञानं ही है .आज के वैज्ञानिक भले इसे पूरी तरह साबित नहीं कर पायें और ये उनकी सीमा के कारण है .हो सकता है की भविष्य  में वो साबित कर पायें ."मैंने कहा .

अनिल बोला " ज्योतिषियों में एक रूपता नहीं है ,उनमे कई अलग अलग मत है .यह तो उलटी बात है ."


"अरे यार वैज्ञानिकों में भी अलग अलग सिद्धांत होते है .जो जितना रिसर्च करता है उसको उतनी बारीकी दिखती है .अलग अलग जगह लोगों ने अलग सिद्धांत दिए है .यह तो  ज्योतिष  की विशेषता है ." मैंने कहा .

गुरुदेव ने कहा "अच्छा अनिल ये बता की तेरी पत्नी को रत्न फायेदा किया की नहीं ?और यहाँ तेरे साथ लूट हुई क्या ?"

अनिल  हँसते हुए बोला " यहाँ तो स्वामीजी मुझे कोई लूट नहीं हुई बल्कि बहुत जादा फायदा हुआ  .रजनी मेरी पत्नी का काम तो रत्न पहनने से ही हुआ ."

"बस तो काम ही अगर हो गया तो मक्कड़ खात  पियो "गुरुदेव ने कहा .

जीवन में अप्रत्याशित की तैयारी रखो

कल गुरुवार  २७ मई को पिंकी का जन्म दिन था .पिंकी( गप्पू की पत्नी) और सोनू ( मेरी पत्नी) ने मिलकर पार्टी का आयोजन ध्यान केंद्र  ने किया था .पिंकी रायता ,छोले ,और पूडी बनाकर लायी और सोनू पुलाव बनाकर ले गई थी .
पिंकी ने केक काटा. सबने मजेदार भोजन का आनंद लिया .पिंकी और सोनू स्वामीजी से मिलकर प्रसन्न है .पिंकी तो जन्मदिन होने के कारण और आनंद में है .बच्चे लोग भी खेल रहे है .रात होने पर  दोनों  वापस घर चले  आये.


इन दोनों में जब से स्वामी जी से दीक्षा लिए   हैं  अभूत पूर्व परिवर्तन आ गया है .जीवन के सभी  आयामों में इनके  सकारात्मक    फर्क पड़ गया है
.मेरी पत्नी को मै बहुत अच्छे से समझ पता हूँ इसलिए यह फर्क क्लियर दीखाई पड़ता है
.पिंकी में भी फर्क गप्पू के अलावा हम लोगों ने भी महसूस किया है .
गुरुदेव से हमने पुछा की इन उज्जड स्त्रियों में इतना सकारात्मक परिवर्तन कैसे आ गया .
"तुम लोगों की जीवन की बहुत बड़ी समस्या तो तुम्हारी पत्नियाँ थी .इसलिए जब तुम लोगों में आध्यत्मिक फर्क आना शुरू हुवा तो पत्नियों का भी सुधार तुम्हारे जीवन के लिए जरुरी हो गया था .इसलिए मैंने उन पर  ध्यान   दिया .यही सबसे मूल कारण था."
"तुम लोगों से मेरे बारे में सुन कर और तुम्हारे व्यक्तित्व में सुधार देखकर  उन लोग भी इस मार्ग  में आने को उत्सुक थे .गुरुदेव के बारे में जानने और अपना भी लाभ लेने की उनमे आकांक्षा जागी. यह दोनों राशी (अमित की पत्नी ) का मेरे प्रति अहोभाव की उसका जीवन बदल गया है देखते थे तो और उनको जिज्ञासा हो गई .सबसे पहले तो पिंकी और सोनू दोनों के भाइयों का कल्याण हुवा तो उनको लगा की हाँ, स्वामी जी के कारण उनको लाभ हो रहा है "
".स्त्रियाँ बहुत व्यवहारिक होती है इसलिए उनको पता भी जल्दी  लग गया."
"धीरे धीरे पिंकी सोनू ने अपने कल्याण के लिए भी प्रयास किया और मेरे सुझाव के अनुसार स्वयं में बदलाव लाना शुरू किया .इसका उनको अच्छा परिणाम मिला .उनको लगा की स्वामी जी हम लोगों के अति शुभ चिन्तक मित्र है .इस प्रकार उनके मन में मेरे प्रति आस्था का जन्म हुवा .आस्था होने से ,ज्योतिष के रत्न पहनने से ,मन्त्र करने से, उनमे यह गुणात्मक परिवर्तन आ गया .पिंकी में यह जल्दी आ गया क्यूंकि वो सहज सरल है और सोनू में थोडा टाइम लगा .सोनू थोड़ी चालबाज़ है इसीलिए . " गुरुदेव ने कहा .
"हाँ स्वामी जी सोनू की आँखों में आपके प्रति आस्था और प्रेम के कारण  कृपा को महसूस करके आंसु आ जाते है " मैंने कहा .

इसके बाद दूसरी बात होने लगी .गप्पू और पिंकू दोनों गुरुदेव की मालिश करने लगे .
गप्पू को  उसको उसकी कम्पनी २२ दिन के ट्रेनिंग में गुजरात भेज रही है वो इतने दिनों तक गुरुदेव और ध्यान केंद्र से दूर रहने के ख्याल से उसको बहुत पीड़ा हो रही है .इसी बात को लेकर कम्पनी के सिनीयर अधिकारी से बहस भी हो गयी .
"स्वामीजी मै बहुत दुखी और मजबूर हो कर जाने का मन बना पाया हूँ ." गप्पू ने कहा .
स्वामी जी ने कहा "मै इतना जीवन बिता चूका हूँ की तुम्हारी समस्या कुछ है ही नहीं . इससे कई बड़ी समस्या जीवन में आ सकती है .कम्पनी तुम्हारा ट्रांसफर भी कर सकती है .इससे अच्छा तो यह है की २२ दिन बिता कर आ जावो . जीवन में यह तैयारी रखो की जो भी अप्रत्याशित जब भी आये उसका सामना मजबूती से कर सको .मन को कमजोर करने से की दुख होगा.ऐसे  जीवन नहीं चलने वाला .मैंने जीवन की सभी छोटी बड़ी समस्या को इसी  मजबूती से झेला है .तुम लोग भी अपने आपको इसी प्रकार तैयार करो .यह क्यों सोचकर चलते हो की समस्या नहीं आयेगी .जीवन है तो जीवन में यह सब तो होगा ही .भविष्य में और भी अप्रत्याशित आ सकता है इसलिए मन की मजबूती की आवश्यकता है की जो भी सामने आएगा उसका सामना करना है "

और रात होने पर  गुरुवार की पूजा की तैयारी कर के साईं बाबा और नर्मदा बाबा की पूजा हुई  और सब ने प्रसाद लिया .स्वामीजी ने मुझको और पिंकू दोनों को मोटापा कम करने के लिए भोजन में संयम की बात भी कही .

जय गुरु महाराज की जय .जय इस्ट देव साईं बाबा की जय

Managing Yourself:(core managment skill)

Managing Yourself:(core managment skill)







Role of New Leader or  Manager of Often Very Stressful

The experience of a first-time supervisor or manager is often one of the most trying in their career. They rarely have adequate training for the new management role -- they were promoted because of their technical expertise, not because of their managerial expertise. They suddenly have a wide range of policies and other regulations to apply to their subordinates. Work is never "done". They must represent upper management to their subordinates, and their subordinates to upper management. They're stuck in the middle. They can feel very alone.





Guidelines to Manage Yourself

Everyone in management has gone through the transition from individual contributor to manager. Each person finds their own way to "survive". The following guidelines will help you keep your perspective and your health.



1. Monitor your work hours

The first visible, undeniable sign that things are out of hand is that you're working too many hours. Note how many hours you are working per week. Set a limit and stick to that limit. Ask your peers or boss for help.



2. Recognize your own signs of stress

Different people show their stress in different ways. Some people have "blow ups". Some people get very forgetful. Some people lose concentration. For many people, they excel at their jobs, but their home life falls apart. Know your signs of stress. Tell someone else what they are. Ask them to check in with you every two weeks to see how you are doing. Every two weeks, write down how you are doing -- if only for a minute. Stick in it a file marked "%*#)%&!!#$".



3. Get a mentor or a coach

Ideally, your supervisors is a very good mentor and coach. Many people have "been there, done that" and can serve as great mentors to you.



4. Learn to delegate

Delegating is giving others the responsibility and authority to carry out tasks. You maintain the accountability to get them done, but you let others decide how they will carry out the tasks themselves. Delegation is a skill to learn. Start learning it.



5. Communicate as much as you can

Have at least one person in your life with whom you are completely honest. Hold regular meetings with staff -- all of them in one meeting at least once a month, and meet at least once every two weeks with each of your direct reports. A common problem among new managers and supervisors (or among experienced, but ineffective ones) is not meeting unless there's something to say. There is always something to communicate, even if to say that things are going well and then share the health of your pets. New managers and supervisors often assume that their employees know as much as they do. One of the first signs of an organization in trouble is that communications break down. Err on the side of too much communication, rather than not enough.



6. Recognize what's important from what's urgent -- fix the system, not the problem

One of the major points that experienced manages make is that they've learned to respond to what's important, rather than what's urgent. Phone calls, sick employees, lost paperwork, disagreements between employees all seem to suddenly crop up and demand immediate attention. It can seem like your day is responding to one crises after another. As you gain experience, you quit responding to the crisis and instead respond to the problem that causes the crises. You get an answering machine or someone else to answer the phone. You plan for employees being gone for the day -- and you accept that people get sick. You develop a filing system to keep track of your paperwork. You learn basic skills in conflict management. Most important, you recognize that management is a process -- you never really "finish" your to-do list -- your list is there to help you keep track of details. Over time, you learn to relax.



7. Recognize accomplishments

Our society promotes problem solvers. We solve one problem and quickly move on to the next. The culture of many organizations rewards problem solvers. Once a problem is solved, we quickly move on to the next to solve that one, too. Pretty soon we feel empty. We feel as if we're not making a difference. Our subordinates do, too. So in all your plans, include time to acknowledge accomplishments -- if only by having a good laugh by the coffee machine, do take time to note that something useful was done.

Meeting Management:(core managment skill)

Meeting Management:(core managment skill)

Basics of Internal Communications






Effective communications is the "life's blood" of an organization. Organizations that are highly successful have strong communications. One of the first signs that an organization is struggling is that communications have broken down. The following guidelines are very basic in nature, but comprise the basics for ensuring strong ongoing, internal communications.






1. Have all employees provide weekly written status reports to their supervisors


Include what tasks were done last week, what tasks are planned next week, any pending issues and date the report. These reports may seem a tedious task, but they're precious in ensuring that the employee and their supervisor have mutual understanding of what is going on, and the reports come in very handy for planning purposes. They also make otherwise harried employees stand back and reflect on what they're doing.










2. Hold monthly meetings with all employees together


Review the overall condition of the organization and review recent successes. Consider conducting "in service" training where employees take turns describing their roles to the rest of the staff. For clarity, focus and morale, be sure to use agendas and ensure follow-up minutes. Consider bringing in a customer to tell their story of how the organization helped them. These meetings go a long way toward building a feeling of teamwork among staff.






3. Hold weekly or biweekly meetings with all employees together if the organization is small (e.g., under 10 people); otherwise, with all managers together


Have these meetings even if there is not a specific problem to solve -- just make them shorter. (Holding meetings only when there are problems to solve cultivates a crisis-oriented environment where managers believe their only job is to solve problems.) Use these meetings for each person to briefly give an overview of what they are doing that week. Facilitate the meetings to support exchange of ideas and questions. Again, for clarity, focus and morale, be sure to use agendas, take minutes and ensure follow-up minutes. Have each person bring their calendar to ensure scheduling of future meetings accommodates each person's calendar.






4. Have supervisors meet with their direct reports in one-on-one meetings every month


This ultimately produces more efficient time management and supervision. Review overall status of work activities, hear how it's going with both the supervisor and the employee, exchange feedback and questions about current products and services, and discuss career planning, etc. Consider these meetings as interim meetings between the more formal, yearly performance review meetings.







Meeting management tends to be a set of skills often overlooked by leaders and managers.

The following information is a rather "Cadillac" version of meeting management suggestions. The reader might pick which suggestions best fits the particular culture of their own organization.

Keep in mind that meetings are very expensive activities when one considers the cost of labor for the meeting and how much can or cannot get done in them. So take meeting management very seriously.



The process used in a meeting depends on the kind of meeting you plan to have, e.g., staff meeting, planning meeting, problem solving meeting, etc. However, there are certain basics that are common to various types of meetings. These basics are described below.



(Note that there may seem to be a lot of suggestions listed below for something as apparently simple as having a meeting. However, any important activity would include a long list of suggestions. The list seems to become much smaller once you master how to conduct the activity.)





Selecting Participants



1. The decision about who is to attend depends on what you want to accomplish in the meeting. This may seem too obvious to state, but it's surprising how many meetings occur without the right people there.

2. Don't depend on your own judgment about who should come. Ask several other people for their opinion as well.

3. If possible, call each person to tell them about the meeting, it's overall purpose and why their attendance is important.

4. Follow-up your call with a meeting notice, including the purpose of the meeting, where it will be held and when, the list of participants and whom to contact if they have questions.

5. Send out a copy of the proposed agenda along with the meeting notice.

6. Have someone designated to record important actions, assignments and due dates during the meeting. This person should ensure that this information is distributed to all participants shortly after the meeting.





Developing Agendas



1. Develop the agenda together with key participants in the meeting. Think of what overall outcome you want from the meeting and what activities need to occur to reach that outcome. The agenda should be organized so that these activities are conducted during the meeting.

In the agenda, state the overall outcome that you want from the meeting

2. Design the agenda so that participants get involved early by having something for them to do right away and so they come on time.

3. Next to each major topic, include the type of action needed, the type of output expected (decision, vote, action assigned to someone), and time estimates for addressing each topic

4. Ask participants if they'll commit to the agenda.

5. Keep the agenda posted at all times.

6. Don't overly design meetings; be willing to adapt the meeting agenda if members are making progress in the planning process.

7. Think about how you label an event, so people come in with that mindset; it may pay to have a short dialogue around the label to develop a common mindset among attendees, particularly if they include representatives from various cultures.





Opening Meetings



1. Always start on time; this respects those who showed up on time and reminds late-comers that the scheduling is serious.

2. Welcome attendees and thank them for their time.

3. Review the agenda at the beginning of each meeting, giving participants a chance to understand all proposed major topics, change them and accept them.

4. Note that a meeting recorder if used will take minutes and provide them back to each participant shortly after the meeting.

5. Model the kind of energy and participant needed by meeting participants.

6. Clarify your role(s) in the meeting.





Establishing Ground Rules for Meetings



You don't need to develop new ground rules each time you have a meeting, surely. However, it pays to have a few basic ground rules that can be used for most of your meetings. These ground rules cultivate the basic ingredients needed for a successful meeting.

1. Four powerful ground rules are: participate, get focus, maintain momentum and reach closure. (You may want a ground rule about confidentiality.)

2. List your primary ground rules on the agenda.

3. If you have new attendees who are not used to your meetings, you might review each ground rule.

4. Keep the ground rules posted at all times.





Time Management

1. One of the most difficult facilitation tasks is time management -- time seems to run out before tasks are completed. Therefore, the biggest challenge is keeping momentum to keep the process moving.

2. You might ask attendees to help you keep track of the time.

3. If the planned time on the agenda is getting out of hand, present it to the group and ask for their input as to a resolution.





Evaluations of Meeting Process



It's amazing how often people will complain about a meeting being a complete waste of time -- but they only say so after the meeting. Get their feedback during the meeting when you can improve the meeting process right away. Evaluating a meeting only at the end of the meeting is usually too late to do anything about participants' feedback.

1. Every couple of hours, conduct 5-10 minutes "satisfaction checks".

2. In a round-table approach, quickly have each participant indicate how they think the meeting is going.





Evaluating the Overall Meeting



1. Leave 5-10 minutes at the end of the meeting to evaluate the meeting; don't skip this portion of the meeting.

2. Have each member rank the meeting from 1-5, with 5 as the highest, and have each member explain their ranking

3. Have the chief executive rank the meeting last.





Closing Meetings



1. Always end meetings on time and attempt to end on a positive note.

2. At the end of a meeting, review actions and assignments, and set the time for the next meeting and ask each person if they can make it or not (to get their commitment)

3. Clarify that meeting minutes and/or actions will be reported back to members in at most a week (this helps to keep momentum going).

Effective Delegation:(core managment skill)


Effective Delegation:(core managment skill)






The hallmark of good leadership is effective delegation. Delegation is when leaders give responsibility and authority to subordinates to complete a task, and let the subordinates figure out how the task can be accomplished.

Effective delegation develops people who are ultimately more fulfilled and productive. Managers become more fulfilled and productive themselves as they learn to count on their staffs and are freed up to attend to more strategic issues.



Delegation is often very difficult for new leaders, particularly if they have had to scramble to start the organization or start a major new product or service themselves. Many managers want to remain comfortable, making the same decisions they have always made. They believe they can do a better job themselves. They don't want to risk losing any of their power and stature (ironically, they do lose these if they don't learn to delegate effectively). Often, they don't want to risk giving authority to subordinates in case they fail and impair the organization.



However, there are basic approaches to delegation that, with practice, become the backbone of effective supervision and development. Thomas R. Horton, in Delegation and Team Building suggests the following general steps to accomplish delegation:



1. Delegate the whole task to one person

This gives the person the responsibility and increases their motivation.



2. Select the right person

Assess the skills and capabilities of subordinates and assign the task to the most appropriate one.



3. Clearly specify your preferred results

Give information on what, why, when, who and where. You might leave the "how" to them. Write this information down.



4. Delegate responsibility and authority -- assign the task, not the method to accomplish it

Let the subordinate complete the task in the manner they choose, as long as the results are what the supervisor specifies. Let the employee have strong input as to the completion date of the project. Note that you may not even know how to complete the task yourself -- this is often the case with higher levels of management.



5. Ask the employee to summarize back to you, their impressions of the project and the results you prefer



6. Get ongoing non-intrusive feedback about progress on the project

This is a good reason to continue to get weekly, written status reports from all direct reports. Reports should cover what they did last week, plan to do next week and any potential issues. Regular employee meetings provide this ongoing feedback, as well.



7. Maintain open lines of communication

Don't hover over the subordinate, but sense what they're doing and support their checking in with you along the way.



8. If you're not satisfied with the progress, don't take the project back

Continue to work with the employee and ensure they perceive the project as their responsibility.



9. Evaluate and reward performance

Evaluate results more than methods. Address insufficient performance and reward successes. See the next major section, "Employee Performance Management."

Planning: core skill

Planning: core skill


Planning typically includes use of the following basic terms.

NOTE: It's not critical to grasp completely accurate definitions of each of the following terms. It's more important for planners to have a basic sense for the difference between goals/objectives (results) and strategies/tasks (methods to achieve the results).

1. Goals

Goals are specific accomplishments that must be accomplished in total, or in some combination, in order to achieve some larger, overall result preferred from the system, for example, the mission of an organization.

2. Strategies or Activities

These are the methods or processes required in total, or in some combination, to achieve the goals.

3. Objectives

Objectives are specific accomplishments that must be accomplished in total, or in some combination, to achieve the goals in the plan. Objectives are usually "milestones" along the way when implementing the strategies.

4. Tasks

Particularly in small organizations, people are assigned various tasks required to implement the plan. If the scope of the plan is very small, tasks and activities are often essentially the same.

5. Resources (and Budgets)

Resources include the people, materials, technologies, money, etc., required to implement the strategies or processes. The costs of these resources are often depicted in the form of a budget.

Basic Overview of Typical Phases in Planning

Whether the system is an organization, department, business, project, etc., the basic planning process typically includes similar nature of activities carried out in similar sequence. The phases are carried out carefully or -- in some cases -- intuitively, for example, when planning a very small, straightforward effort. The complexity of the various phases (and their duplication throughout the system) depend on the scope of the system. For example, in a large corporation, the following phases would be carried out in the corporate offices, in each division, in each department, in each group, etc.

NOTE: Different groups of planners might have different names for the following activities and groups them differently. However, the nature of the activities and their general sequence remains the same.

NOTE: The following are typical phases in planning. They do not comprise the complete, ideal planning process.

1. Reference Overall Singular Purpose ("Mission")

Or Desired Result from System



During planning, planners have in mind (consciously or unconsciously) some overall purpose or result that the plan is to achieve. For example, during strategic planning, it's critical to reference the mission, or overall purpose, of the organization.

2. Take Stock Outside and Inside the System

This "taking stock" is always done to some extent, whether consciously or unconsciously. For example, during strategic planning, it's important to conduct an environmental scan. This scan usually involves considering various driving forces, or major influences, that might effect the organization.

3. Analyze the Situation

For example, during strategic planning, planners often conduct a "SWOT analysis". (SWOT is an acronym for considering the organization's strengths and weaknesses, and the opportunities and threats faced by the organization.) During this analysis, planners also can use a variety of assessments, or methods to "measure" the health of systems.

4. Establish Goals

Based on the analysis and alignment to the overall mission of the system, planners establish a set of goals that build on strengths to take advantage of opportunities, while building up weaknesses and warding off threats.

5. Establish Strategies to Reach Goals

The particular strategies (or methods to reach the goals) chosen depend on matters of affordability, practicality and efficiency.

6. Establish Objectives Along the Way to Achieving Goals

Objectives are selected to be timely and indicative of progress toward goals.

7. Associate Responsibilities and Time Lines With Each Objective

Responsibilities are assigned, including for implementation of the plan, and for achieving various goals and objectives. Ideally, deadlines are set for meeting each responsibility.

8. Write and Communicate a Plan Document

The above information is organized and written in a document which is distributed around the system.

9. Acknowledge and Celebrate Accomplishment of the Plan

This step is frequently forgotten, which can lead to increasing frustration and skepticism on the part of those people who are responsible to carry out the plan.

Guidelines to Ensure Successful Planning and Implementation

A common failure in many kinds of planning is that the plan is never really implemented. Instead, all focus is on writing a plan document. Too often, the plan sits collecting dust on a shelf. Therefore, most of the following guidelines help to ensure that the planning process is carried out completely and is implemented completely -- or, deviations from the intended plan are recognized and managed accordingly.

1. Involve the Right People in the Planning Process

It is critical that all parts of the system continue to exchange feedback in order to function effectively. This is true no matter what type of system. When planning, get input from everyone who will responsible to carry out parts of the plan, along with representative from groups who will be affected by the plan. Of course, people also should be involved if they will be responsible to review and authorize the plan.

2. Write Down the Planning Information and Communicate it Widely

New managers, in particular, often forget that others don't know what these managers know.

Even if managers do communicate their intentions and plans verbally, chances are great that others won't completely hear or understand what the manager wants done.

Also, as plans change, it's extremely difficult to remember who is supposed to be doing what and according to which version of the plan. Key stakeholders (employees, management, board members, funders, investor, customers, clients, etc.) may request copies of various types of plans.



Therefore, it's critical to write plans down and communicate them widely.

3. Goals and Objectives Should Be SMARTER

SMARTER is an acronym, that is, a word composed by joining letters from different words in a phrase or set of words. In this case, a SMARTER goal or objective is:

Specific:

For example, it's difficult to know what someone should be doing if they are to pursue the goal to "work harder". It's easier to recognize "Write a paper".

Measurable:

It's difficult to know what the scope of "Writing a paper" really is. It's easier to appreciate that effort if the goal is "Write a 30-page paper".

Acceptable:

If I'm to take responsibility for pursuit of a goal, the goal should be acceptable to me. For example, I'm not likely to follow the directions of someone telling me to write a 30-page paper when I also have to five other papers to write. However, if you involve me in setting the goal so I can change my other commitments or modify the goal, I'm much more likely to accept pursuit of the goal as well.

Realistic:

Even if I do accept responsibility to pursue a goal that is specific and measurable, the goal won't be useful to me or others if, for example, the goal is to "Write a 30-page paper in the next 10 seconds".

Time frame:

It may mean more to others if I commit to a realistic goal to "Write a 30-page paper in one week". However, it'll mean more to others (particularly if they are planning to help me or guide me to reach the goal) if I specify that I will write one page a day for 30 days, rather than including the possibility that I will write all 30 pages in last day of the 30-day period.

Extending:

The goal should stretch the performer's capabilities. For example, I might be more interested in writing a 30-page paper if the topic of the paper or the way that I write it will extend my capabilities.

Rewarding:

I'm more inclined to write the paper if the paper will contribute to an effort in such a way that I might be rewarded for my effort.

4. Build in Accountability (Regularly Review Who's Doing What and By When?)

Plans should specify who is responsible for achieving each result, including goals and objectives. Dates should be set for completion of each result, as well. Responsible parties should regularly review status of the plan. Be sure to have someone of authority "sign off" on the plan, including putting their signature on the plan to indicate they agree with and support its contents. Include responsibilities in policies, procedures, job descriptions, performance review processes, etc.

5. Note Deviations from the Plan and Replan Accordingly

It's OK to deviate from the plan. The plan is not a set of rules. It's an overall guideline. As important as following the plan is noticing deviations and adjusting the plan accordingly.

6. Evaluate Planning Process and the Plan

During the planning process, regularly collect feedback from participants. Do they agree with the planning process? If not, what don't they like and how could it be done better? In large, ongoing planning processes (such as strategic planning, business planning, project planning, etc.), it's critical to collect this kind of feedback regularly.

During regular reviews of implementation of the plan, assess if goals are being achieved or not. If not, were goals realistic? Do responsible parties have the resources necessary to achieve the goals and objectives? Should goals be changed? Should more priority be placed on achieving the goals? What needs to be done?

Finally, take 10 minutes to write down how the planning process could have been done better. File it away and read it the next time you conduct the planning process.

7. Recurring Planning Process is at Least as Important as Plan Document

Far too often, primary emphasis is placed on the plan document. This is extremely unfortunate because the real treasure of planning is the planning process itself. During planning, planners learn a great deal from ongoing analysis, reflection, discussion, debates and dialogue around issues and goals in the system. Perhaps there is no better example of misplaced priorities in planning than in business ethics. Far too often, people put emphasis on written codes of ethics and codes of conduct. While these documents certainly are important, at least as important is conducting ongoing communications around these documents. The ongoing communications are what sensitize people to understanding and following the values and behaviors suggested in the codes.

8. Nature of the Process Should Be Compatible to Nature of Planners

A prominent example of this type of potential problem is when planners don't prefer the "top down" or "bottom up", "linear" type of planning (for example, going from general to specific along the process of an environmental scan, SWOT analysis, mission/vision/values, issues and goals, strategies, objectives, timelines, etc.) There are other ways to conduct planning.

9. Critical -- But Frequently Missing Step -- Acknowledgement and Celebration of Results

It's easy for planners to become tired and even cynical about the planning process. One of the reasons for this problem is very likely that far too often, emphasis is placed on achieving the results. Once the desired results are achieved, new ones are quickly established. The process can seem like having to solve one problem after another, with no real end in sight. Yet when one really thinks about it, it's a major accomplishment to carefully analyze a situation, involve others in a plan to do something about it, work together to carry out the plan and actually see some results. So acknowledge this -- celebrate your accomplishment!

CORE SKILLS IN MANAGEMENT AND LEADERSHIP

CORE SKILLS IN MANAGEMENT AND LEADERSHIP


Problem Solving and Decision Making

Much of what managers and supervisors do is solve problems and make decisions.

New managers and supervisors, in particular, often solve problems and decisions by reacting to them. They are "under the gun", stressed and very short for time.



Consequently, when they encounter a new problem or decision they must make, they react with a decision that seemed to work before. It's easy with this approach to get stuck in a circle of solving the same problem over and over again. Therefore, as a new manager or supervisor, get used to an organized approach to problem solving and decision making.

Not all problems can be solved and decisions made by the following, rather rational approach. However, the following basic guidelines will get you started.

Don't be intimidated by the length of the list of guidelines. After you've practiced them a few times, they'll become second nature to you -- enough that you can deepen and enrich them to suit your own needs and nature.

(Note that it might be more your nature to view a "problem" as an "opportunity". Therefore, you might substitute "opportunity" for "problem" in the following guidelines.)

1. Define the problem

This is often where people struggle. They react to what they think the problem is. Instead, seek to understand more about why you think there's a problem.

Defining the problem: (with input from yourself and others)

Ask yourself and others, the following questions:

a. what can you see that causes you to think there's a problem?

b. Where is it happening?

c. How is it happening?

d. When is it happening?

e. With whom is it happening? (HINT: Don't jump to "Who is causing the problem?" When we're stressed, blaming is often one of our first reactions. To be an effective manager, you need to address issues more than people.)

f. Why is it happening?

g. Write down a five-sentence description of the problem in terms of "The following should be happening, but isn't ..." or "The following is happening and should be: ..." As much as possible, be specific in your description, including what is happening, where, how, with whom and why.

Defining complex problems:

a. If the problem still seems overwhelming, break it down by repeating steps a-f until you have descriptions of several related problems.

Verifying your understanding of the problems:

a. It helps a great deal to verify your problem analysis for conferring with a peer or someone else.

Prioritize the problems:

a. If you discover that you are looking at several related problems, then prioritize which ones you should address first.

b. Note the difference between "important" and "urgent" problems. Often, what we consider to be important problems to consider are really just urgent problems. Important problems deserve more attention. For example, if you're continually answering "urgent" phone calls, then you've probably got a more "important" problem and that's to design a system that screens and prioritizes your phone calls.

Understand your role in the problem:

a. Your role in the problem can greatly influence how you perceive the role of others. For example, if you're very stressed out, it'll probably look like others are, too, or, you may resort too quickly to blaming and reprimanding others. Or, you are feel very guilty about your role in the problem, you may ignore the accountabilities of others.

2. Look at potential causes for the problem

a. It's amazing how much you don't know about what you don't know. Therefore, in this phase, it's critical to get input from other people who notice the problem and who are affected by it.

b. It's often useful to collect input from other individuals one at a time (at least at first). Otherwise, people tend to be inhibited about offering their impressions of the real causes of problems.

c. Write down what your opinions and what you've heard from others.

d. Regarding what you think might be performance problems associated with an employee; it's often useful to seek advice from a peer or your supervisor in order to verify your impression of the problem.

e.Write down a description of the cause of the problem and in terms of what is happening, where, when, how, with whom and why.

3. Identify alternatives for approaches to resolve the problem

a. At this point, it's useful to keep others involved (unless you're facing a personal and/or employee performance problem). Brainstorm for solutions to the problem. Very simply put, brainstorming is collecting as many ideas as possible, and then screening them to find the best idea. It's critical when collecting the ideas to not pass any judgment on the ideas -- just write them down as you hear them.

4. Select an approach to resolve the problem

When selecting the best approach, consider:

a. Which approach is the most likely to solve the problem for the long term?

b. Which approach is the most realistic to accomplish for now? Do you have the resources? Are they affordable? Do you have enough time to implement the approach?

c. What is the extent of risk associated with each alternative?

(The nature of this step, in particular, in the problem solving process is why problem solving and decision taking are highly integrated.)

5. Plan the implementation of the best alternative (this is your action plan)

a. Carefully consider "What will the situation look like when the problem is solved?"

b. What steps should be taken to implement the best alternative to solving the problem? What systems or processes should be changed in your organization, for example, a new policy or procedure? Don't resort to solutions where someone is "just going to try harder".

c. How will you know if the steps are being followed or not? (These are your indicators of the success of your plan)

d. What resources will you need in terms of people, money and facilities?

e. How much time will you need to implement the solution?

Write a schedule that includes the start and stop times, and when you expect to see certain indicators of success.

f. Who will primarily be responsible for ensuring implementation of the plan?

g. Write down the answers to the above questions and consider this as your action plan.

h. Communicate the plan to those who will involved in implementing it and, at least, to your immediate supervisor.

(An important aspect of this step in the problem-solving process is continually observation and feedback.)

6. Monitor implementation of the plan

Monitor the indicators of success:

a. Are you seeing what you would expect from the indicators?

b. Will the plan be done according to schedule?

c. If the plan is not being followed as expected, then consider: Was the plan realistic? Are there sufficient resources to accomplish the plan on schedule? Should more priority be placed on various aspects of the plan? Should the plan be changed?

7. Verify if the problem has been resolved or not

One of the best ways to verify if a problem has been solved or not is to resume normal operations in the organization. Still, you should consider:

a. What changes should be made to avoid this type of problem in the future? Consider changes to policies and procedures, training, etc.

b.Lastly; consider "What did you learn from this problem solving?" Consider new knowledge, understanding and/or skills.

c. Consider writing a brief memo that highlights the success of the problem solving effort, and what you learned as a result. Share it with your supervisor, peers and subordinates.

साधना में विघ्न

साधना में विघ्न कई प्रकार के हो सकते है .मूल रूप से कुछ प्रकार को जान कर उसके प्रति सचेत रहा जा सकता है.निम्न लिखित कुछ विशेष विघ्न है जिनसे साधक को सचेत रहना है :-



स्वास्थ्य : स्वास्थ्य अच्छा रहेगा ,कोई रोग नहीं होगा तो ही तो व्यक्ति साधना भली भांति कर सकेगा .इसलिए स्वस्थ रहने के लिए व्यायाम योग आसन इत्यादि करना चाहिए.


आहार : साधक को अपने आहार का ध्यान रखना चाहिए .आहार से कई प्रकार के मनो भाव आते है इसलिए ऐसा आहार लेना चाहिए जो साधक को प्रमाद के ओर मत ले जाये .

शंका :गीता में कृष्ण ने कहा है "संशयात्मा विनश्यति ". साधक को गुरु मन्त्र और इस्ट पर अटूट श्रद्धा होनी चाहिए .श्रद्धा साधक को साधना की उर्जा के प्रति ग्रहण शील बनाती है.श्रद्धा से साधक को गुरु ,मन्त्र ,इस्ट की कृपा मिलती है .शंका से मन और बुद्धि ,दिव्या उर्जा को ग्रहण करने की क्षमता खो देते है .

सदगुरु : किसी भी प्रकार की विद्या को प्राप्त करने के लिए गुरु के मार्गदर्शन की जरुरत होती है . सदगुरु के निर्देश के अनुसार ही साधना सफल हो सकती है .खजाने के रास्ते का पता गुरु को ही होता है .

प्रतिस्ठा मानसन्मान:  कुछ सफलता मिलने पर साधक को मान सन्मान मिलने लगता है जिससे उसका मन और और की इच्छा करता है .साधक का अहंकार बढ जाता है और वह पतन के ओर जाने लगता है .

परनिंदा : साधक दूसरों की बुराई निकल कर निंदा करता है .साधक स्वयं तो अच्छे मार्ग पर चल रहा होता है पर दुसरे की बुराई निकल कर निंदा करने से साधक का बड़ा भरी नुकसान   होता है .यह विघ्न साधक का पतन ला देता  है .


बर्म्ह्चार्य : साधक को अपनी काम वासना के ऊपर नियंत्रण पूर्ण रूप से रखना  चाहिए. कामवासना का गड्ढा इनता बड़ा है की उसमे गिरने से साधक पूरी तरह से साधना से विमुख हो सकता है .


भौतिक इक्षाएं :अनेक प्रकार की कामनाएं मन में  होती है. इन कामनाओं को विवेक का उपयोग करके बचना चाहिए .मन तो इतनी कामनाओं का अम्बर लगा देगा की साधक उसी में उलझ कर साधना के मूल स्वरूप से भटक जायेगा .मन को बार बार इस बारे में चेताते रहना चाहिए .    



साधकों के लिए सबसे अच्छा है की वो सदगुरु का सत्संग करते रहे तो गुरु आपको इन विघ्न बाधा से लगातार बचाते रहेंगे .

साधो ,गुरु के अलावा और कोई मार्ग नहीं है .

आदि शक्ति से एकात्मता का अनुभव

आदि शक्ति से एकात्मता का अनुभव, उसकी विभूतियों और शक्तियों से एक्य कैसे प्राप्त किया जाय?
उत्तर है साधना और योग द्वारा.


साधना शब्द साध से आता है जिसका अर्थ है एक लक्ष्य की प्राप्ति के लिए अथक प्रयास .यह प्रयास ही साधना कहलाता है .इसमें सफलता सिद्धि कहलाती है .हिन्दू अर्थों में साधना का मतलब धार्मिक क्रिया होता है. साधक की स्थति द्वैत की होती है यानि साधक और उसका इस्ट .धार्मिक साधना का सर्वोच्च उद्देश्य इस्ट लोक की दिव्य आनंद और विभूति प्राप्त करना होता है . यह देव लोक का आनंद निर्वाण नहीं है .निर्वाण निरपेक्ष है.सामान्यत धार्मिक कर्म कांड साधक को योग के लिए तैयार करते है. साधना में सिद्दी योग में ले जाती है .योग में सिद्धि पूर्णता देती है ,दिव्य अनुभव देती है .


 अब साधना के बारे में कुछ और बातें .







साधना जिसकी हम चर्चा कर रहें है वो धार्मिक क्रिया है जो नैतिक ,अध्यात्मिक.लक्ष्य प्राप्ति के लिए होती है.यद्यपि इससे देव के दिव्य विभूति और सांसारिक, भौतिक प्राप्तियां भी होती है .




सिद्धि अति मानवीय शक्ति है जो प्रकृति द्वारा दी गयी शक्तियों का ही विस्तार है.
 धार्मिक कर्म कांड विचारों की शक्ति ही है जिसको हिन्दू मान्यता भौतिक शक्ति के बराबर या जायदा मानते है और इसके क्रिया से कई प्रकार के भौतिक लाभ भी प्राप्त करते है.
यह  हिन्दुओं की खासियत है .

जय गुरुदेव जय भैरवी माँ

शक्ति सक्रिय और स्त्रैन्य है.

जगत  में सर्वत्र उर्जा या कह लीजिये शक्ति ही  है .

Einstein के e=mcc  के सिद्धांत  ने यह साबित कर दिया है .

हिन्दू मान्यता भी जगत को ब्रम्ह या शक्ति मानती है .

ब्रम्ह स्वयं में निष्क्रिय है उसकी सक्रियता शक्ति के कारण है  संसार शक्ति विश्व रूप में शक्ति है.

(Power as universe is called Samsara.)

 यही शक्ति व्यक्ति के अंदर अभिवयक्त  हो तो वही निर्वाण है .








तब संसार का स्वानुभव क्या है ?

यह जो  जीवन का स्वाभाविक प्रवाह है वह धर्म है  .

धर्म की खासियत है कर्तव्य और व्यक्ति की सीमायें .

(The world  is the world of form, and Dharma is the Law of Form. Form necessarily implies duality and limitation. Therefore, experience in Samsara is an experience of form by form.)


संसार के स्वानुभव का मतलब है शक्ति एक स्वरुप का दुसरे स्वरुप का अनुभव .

यही निर्वाण है यही मोक्ष है .

 द्वैत का भाव यही है .यह सीमित है और सापेक्ष है.

 विश्व की पूर्ण शक्ति को शिव -शक्ति कहा गया है .यह सर्वोच्च है .

  शिव शक्ति एक ही सत्ता के दो पहलु है .शिव निष्क्रिय है ,पुरुष है  और शक्ति सक्रिय  और स्त्रैन्य  है.

इसी शक्ति को महामाया भगवती माँ  के रूप में  शाक्त भक्त  पूजा करते है .

माँ के इस रूप को बौद्दिक तल पर जानना यह भक्त नहीं चाहता .
भक्त माँ के स्वरुप को चिन्मय चेतना के रूप में अनुभूत करना चाहता है .

भक्ति से उत्पन्न सर्वोच्च चेतना का आनंद

 शाक्त वो कहलाते है जो अपने आराध्य के रूप में आदि शक्ति माँ भगवती की पूजा करते है .शाक्तों की पूजा और उनका सिद्दांत महत्वपूर्ण है इसलिए की ये इक्षा और शक्ति का सर्वोच्च स्वरुप है .
यह रहस्य ,कर्म कांड ,उच्चतर चेतना,और भक्ति से उत्पन्न सर्वोच्च चेतना का आनंद है




 धर्म और साधना  के लिए ही धार्मिक प्रक्रियाएं,धार्मिक कर्मकांड  एक उच्चतर कला है .
धर्मिक प्रक्रियाएं ,पूजा विधि , शारीरिक और मानसिक क्रिया है जो धर्म का एक अंग साधना  है.
नैतिकता भी इसका एक अंग है


{Shaktas  are so called because they worship the great Mother-Power or Mahashakti. .Their doctrine and practice is of importance, because, of its accentuation of Will and Power. He describes it as "a magnificent ensemble of metaphysic, magic and devotion raised on grandiose foundations".

Some word about  "Ritual".   Ritual is the Art both of Religion and Magic.. Magic, however, is more completely identified with ritual than is religion; for magic is ritual, using the latter term to include both mental and bodily activity; whereas religion, in the wide sense of Dharma, is not merely ritual-worship, but covers morality also. }

कर्म और भाग्य का रहस्य

आज सत्संग में तीन चार लोग ही बैठे है .गुरुदेव के आने पर सभी ने गुरुदेव को प्रणाम किया .ध्यान केंद्र बूढ़ापारा रायपुर में गुरुदेव की निवास की दूसरी मंजिल पर है .
अभी यहाँ दूसरा कूलर लगने से गर्मी कम लग रही है .गुरुदेव प्रसन्न है की कूलर लगा है ."तुम लोग यंग हो ,अब ध्यान केंद्र में जो भी करना है तुम लोगों को करना है .मै अब उतना भाग दौड़ नहीं कर सकता .कूलर जो लगाय हो ये बहुत अच्छा हुआ .गर्मी में मुझको बहुत तकलीफ होती थी .यहाँ तुम लोग जब से तंत्र कर रहे हो यहाँ की एनेर्जी के अलावा यहाँ की भौतिक समृद्धि भी बढ रही है .मुझे यह देख  कर प्रसन्नता होती है .भगवान् श्री ओशो  और अन्य सुक्ष्म शरीर में यहाँ आने वाली सत्ताएँ यह देखकर तुम
लोगों को और भी आशीष देती है ."

(यहाँ 1979 से गुरुदेव स्वामी चिन्मय योगी (श्री रजत बोस )जी के संचालन में नीरव रजनीश ध्यान केंद्र के नाम से सत्संग ध्यान इत्यादि क्रियाकलाप चल रहे है .)

"स्वामी जी ,यहाँ हम लोग मन्त्र जाप करते है ,यज्ञ हवन ,पूजा करते है ,ज्योतिषी उपचार करते है इससे हमारे जीवन में भौतिक और आत्मिक लाभ हुआ है .यहाँ आने वाले सभी को लाभ हुआ है .ये सब उपाय भाग्यवादी है या कर्म वादी ?ये सब भाग्य के अनुसार होता है तो कर्म का क्या महत्व है ?  मुझे इस विषय में हमेशा शंका रहती है ." मैंने पुछा .

"बढ़िया प्रश्न पुछा है तुमने .जयादातर लोगों को बड़ा भ्रम है इस विषय पर "

"तुम तो ज्योतिष जानते हो .यह तो तुमको दिख ही गया होगा की जीवन में सारा कुछ प्रारब्ध के अनुसार ही होता है .यह प्रारब्ध पूर्व जन्मो के कर्म के हिसाब से तय होता है .इसी प्रारब्ध के अनुसार ही व्यक्ति कर्म करता है .यानि कर्म का निर्धारण प्रारब्ध के अनुसार होता है अगर अच्छा प्रारब्ध है की बहुत सफल होगा तो कर्म भी उसी अनुसार सफलता प्राप्ति के अनुकूल व्यक्ति करता है . "

 मैंने फिर पुछा "अगर ऐसा है तो वर्तमान में हमको कर्म करने की कोई स्वतंत्रता नहीं है ?"

"देखो  70  प्रतिशत कर्म तो प्रारब्ध के हिसाब से तय है की तुम क्या करोगे .तुमको जो स्वंत्रता मिली है वर्तमान में कर्म करने की वो संचित कर्म कहलाता है . वो स्वतंत्रता तुमको है .इसी के हिसाब से तुम्हारा भविष्य निर्धरित होगा .इसीलिए कहते है की वर्तमान में शुभ कर्म करो .यह शुभ कर्म तुमको अभी तो लाभ देगा ही और भविष्य का भी प्रारब्ध शुभ बनाएगा .इसी कारण से मन्त्र ,रत्न ,यज्ञ हवन ,पूजा आपको जायदा लाभ देते दिखते है क्योंकि इससे तुहारा प्रारब्ध ,वर्तमान और संचित कर्म सभी सुधरता है .तुमको समझ आया .यही कर्म,प्रारब्ध ,संचित कर्म का रहस्य है जिसे   ज्यादातर लोग समझ नहीं पातें है ." गुरुदेव ने कहा .

"जी ,स्वामी जी" मैंने  संतुष्ट होकर कहा .

"स्वामीजी मुझको तो  क्लिष्ट शब्दों के कारण कुछ पल्ले नहीं पड़ा " पिंकू ने कहा .

 सभी लोग हंस दिए.

स्वामी जी ने मुस्कुराते हुवे कहा " सब कुछ भाग्य ही है .जो भी कर्म लोग कर रहे है वो भाग्य ही उनसे ऐसा कर्म करा रहा है .अच्छा भाग्य वाले को अच्छा कर्म और बुरा भाग्य वाले को बुरा कर्म ."

"कर्म तो सभी व्यक्ति बराबर ही करते है .कर्म कोई जादा  या कम नहीं करता है .फल में अंतर भाग्य के कारण है "

"इसलिए आप कर्म जादा कर लूँगा तो जादा लाभ मिलेगा ऐसा नहीं होता .भाग्य में होगा तो कर्म वो जादा करा लेगा ."

"इसलिए आप जानों की कर्म में उंच नीच नहीं कर सकते .उसके बदले आप रत्न मन्त्र पूजा यज्ञ हवन करके भाग्य कम  लो तो जादा लाभ होगा."

यही कर्म और भाग्य का रहस्य है .

गृहस्थों को कम से कम पांच देवी देवताओं की पूजा और मन्त्र जाप करना चाहिए


कल गुरुवार को सत्संग में गुरुदेव के साथ मै ,अतुल ,पिंकू सिर्फ तीन ही लोग थे .हम लोग रात में थोडा देर से ध्यान केंद्र पहुचे .सभी का वर्किंग डे  होने के कारण सभी कम निपटा कर फ्री होने में थोडा जायदा समय लग जाता है .हम लोग पंहुचे तब तक रात के 11  बज चुके थे .

गुरुदेव के आने पर प्रणाम करके हम बैठे .पिंकू को दुध लेने के लिए अतुल भैया बोल चुके थे .दुध आने पर चाय का इंतजाम हो गया .चाय के साथ सत्संग, वार्तालाप भी चलने लगा .अतुल ने कहा " स्वामी जी, मै हर गुरुवार को साईं मंदिर गोल चौक रोहिणीपुरम जाता हूँ और अब  मुझको साईं बाबा बुलाते है और अपनी उपस्थिति और कृपा  का एहसास कराते है ऐसा लगता है ."

 गुरुदेव ने कहा "बिलकुल सही है .मुझको भी साईं बाबा के कृपा का एहसास होता है .मै बाबा को अपना इस्टदेव  बनाने के लिए बोलता हूँ .इस्ट वो होता है जो आपकी सभी समस्या को हल करने में आपकी मदद करे .बाबा को मै जब जब अपनी समस्या रखा हूँ उन्होंने हर बार मेरी मदद की है .
मै बाबा की भक्ति में ,अहोभाव में ,हमेशा रहता हूँ.आज बाबा की कृपा से मुझे और मेरे  बेटे  समेत  पुरे  परिवार का जीना खाना मज़े से चल रहा है .अगर बाबा की कृपा नहीं रहती तो मेरे बेटे और मुझे बहुत बड़ी आर्थिक संकट का सामना करना पड़ता ."

 इसके बाद गुरुदेव ने विस्तार से बाबा की कृपा को बताया .

"तुम लोगों को मै इतना बाबा के बारे में बार बार बता कर तुहारे अंतर  में बाबा के प्रति आस्था जगा देना चाहता हूँ ताकि जो लाभ मुझे मिला है वो तुमको भी मिले "  गुरुदेव ने कहा .

आगे मंत्रजाप की बात चलने लगी .अतुल ने कहा " मंत्र जाप से मुझे  बहुत लाभ हुवा  है ."
गुरुदेव बोले "हाँ ,मंत्र जाप से लाभ होता ही है ."
"जो व्यक्ति घर बार छोड़ कर बिना परिवार के सन्यासी की तरह रहता है उसे मात्र चैतन्यता प्राप्त करने के लिए इस्ट देव का ही मंत्र जाप पर्याप्त है .पर जो गृहस्थ  है ,घर परिवार है उनको कम से कम पांच देवताओं का मन्त्र जाप करना चाहिए "
मैंने कहा "मै तो कई सारे मन्त्र का जाप करता हूँ "
गुरुदेव ने कहा "हाँ मैंने ही तुम्हे इसकी प्रेरणा दी है .गृहस्थ को धन ,सुरक्षा ,सौभाग्य ,पारिवारिक ,सामाजिक ,आर्थिक ,शारीरिक सभी चाहिए इसलिए उनको जायदा मन्त्र और देवी देवताओं की पूजा करनी चाहिए .मै तुमको यह बात विशेषकर बता रहा हूँ क्यूंकि यह कई लोगों को मालूम नहीं है ."
गृहस्थों को कम से कम पांच देवी देवताओं की पूजा और मन्त्र जाप करना चाहिए इस सबक को मेरे मन ने गुरु और भैरवी माता को प्रणाम करके याद कर लिया .
"स्वामी जी गुरुवार की पूजा कर लें ?" मैंने आज्ञा  ली
"हां कर लेतें है "
गुरुवार को  ध्यान केंद्र में रात को हम लोग साईं बाबा और नर्मदा बाबा की पूजा और मन्त्र जाप  करते है .यह पिछले डेढ़ साल से निरंतर चल रहा है
पूजा करके प्रसाद लिया .समय रात के 2 :30  हो रहा था .
गुरुदेव बोले "इतनी रात को पूजा अघोर साधक और तांत्रिक ही करते है ."
"तुम लोग अब तांत्रिक  जैसे ही रात को जाप करते हो .इस पद्धति में लाभ जायदा मिलता है " 
3 बजे के करीब हम लोगों ने गुरुदेव को प्रणाम करके विदा ली .

Ghost (Pret) or spirit or Paranormal World (Part-2 )





प्रेत हमारे जीवन में क्या असर दिखा सकता है ?What can a paranormal body cause in my life?



Ghosts can be responsible for many type of illnesses, mostly mental and sometimes physical illnesses. They mostly are responsible for strong negative emotions, poor interpersonal relationships, life breakdowns on different levels: mental, financial, sexual, health etc. It can manifest itself in many ways which depends on the personality of the person possessed, one's conscious and subconscious mind, needs, emotions, lifestyle etc.



क्या प्रेत व्यक्ति को आत्महत्या के लिए प्रेरित कर सकता है ? Can ghosts persuade one to commit a suicide?



Yes, this is their first desire and motive, they do this very often. Ghost is an entity who passed thorough the death for various reasons. Very often they are resigned and have only little energy. As they are dead they wish the possessed person also join their world.



क्या प्रेत एक व्यक्ति के शरीर से निकल कर दुसरे शरीर में जा सकता है ?Is it possible that a ghost who has been removed off enters someone else’s body?



Yes, it is possible. After removed by force or leaving by choice they look for an other person to possess. Like we have a free will, same they also have.



क्या प्रेत अच्छे और भले भी होते है ?Are there good ghosts around?



There are both kinds of ghost, but mostly they are evil, and in principle dangerous for the living human beings, because they need to steal our energy in order to survive. Very often they also want to steal our body to find a vehicle to fulfill their own desires like sex, power etc.





क्या प्रेत से संवाद हो सकता है ? क्या वो हमको सुन सकते है ?Is is possible to talk to a paranormal body? Can they hear us?



It is very much possible to talk to ghosts, but it is very dangerous, Talking to ghosts is equal to summoning them, which is very dangerous even if the ghost is someone very close to you. When you call them you are invoking their desire to live in this world, they here what you say. In a way you are disturbing their peace. This is not a good practice and one should avoid it. There are many other adventure sports to try.



प्रेत बाधा ग्रस्त घर के क्या लक्षण होते है ?What are the symptoms of a possessed (haunted) house?



If the house is possessed or we say haunted, there are noises in your home, waking in the middle of the night, banging, knocking, objects moving or falling, being touched, being raped, the sensation of cold, the sensation of invisible attacks, being manipulated, humiliated and oppressed, if bruises of unknown provenance appear on your body, scratches, wounds, then it's very likely that you are not alone in the house.



In such houses the dreams become intense nightmares. Sleep is constantly disturbed. Constant headaches. Negative emotions-Fear, Hate are intensified. Person might talk aloud to the spirits. Person hears spirit voices that confuse thinking patterns and hinder concentration needed for school, work and normal life. Fear that the person can’t control or stop the spirit. Thoughts of suicide are frequent and uncontrolled.



स्त्री और पुरुष में कौन  ज्यादा ग्रसित  होता है ? Who is more prone, male or female?



Females are more prone to becoming a victim of the spirit world compared to men. They are more vulnerable during their monthly cycles, if during that time period she goes near the graveyard or a river or lake or under trees, uses perfumes, drinks alcohol or take drugs, keeps herself dirty, open hairs with perfumed oil she is inviting trouble as spirits are everywhere and can take charge of the female body anytime the circumstances are right.



On the other hand in men the possibility arise when they take alcohol in open area, urinate in open areas or under tree, involve with women who are possessed or are unhygienic. In both men and women when the aura weakens the possibility increases.



The person’s nail, body product like handkerchief, vest, shirt or pant, or a piece thereof or anything else like his or her fountain pen and cigarette case can be used, even the comb and towel can cause a big damage to the person if these items are misused. The tooth of a person is the easiest way of affecting black magic on him or her.





The dust of the Earth from the room or place where one is living or uses more often can be collected by a wet piece of cloth and it can be magically treated for or mistreated against



In certain cases even the underwear or undergarment can be used for magical purposes to achieve certain successes or causing certain damages in relationship between husband and wife, or lover and beloved, or employer and employee. In some cases, only that underwear is preferred, which was earlier used during the worldly enjoyment between man and woman.



One thing is certain that a person who deploys negative energy and harms others cannot escape punishment from the nature; this power is only meant for helping the people rather than harming them.

It shows the powers of God and Devil stay together.

What is a Spirit or Ghost ( Pret) or Paranormal Body?



A paranormal body or ghost or spirit or apparition is the energy, soul or personality of a person who has died and has somehow gotten stuck between this plane of existence and the next. Some knows and some does not know that they are dead. Mostly they have died under traumatic, unusual or highly emotional circumstances. Ghosts can be perceived by the living in a number of ways: through sight (apparitions), sound (voices), smell (fragrances and odors), touch and sometimes they can just be sensed.



An earthbound spirit or paranormal body can be a human spirit that has not properly passed over. They have not gone onto the next level, the light, heaven, whatever we can call it. They remain behind, here on earth, and the place they live we call haunted.



Sometimes there reason to stay behind is to take care of unfinished business, there love for their children. Often these earthbound spirits do not remain here for long, once they can complete their desire, they normally pass over



How do ghosts (paranormal body) possess a person?



The act of possession can happen in a few seconds or over a period of few months. It primarily depends how vulnerable is the person. Here vulnerability means at a physical or mental level. Ghost or paranormal body weakened the possible victim by creating a vulnerable atmosphere, like they cause sleeplessness. Some times if they have the power to create voices, they make sounds to create a fearful atmosphere. They take advantage of the resultant vulnerability to create an entry point. They take advantage of personality disorders such as anger, fear, over-emotional nature etc. They aggravate these personality defects adding more vulnerability. Addition to that they put negative thoughts, creating self doubts, instigating depression, causing fights between couples. The incorrect thoughts planted in a person by the ghost make the person misbehave. There normal behavior changes to a larger extent. Ghosts destabilize a person’s mental balance and thereby create vulnerability. And then they take over.



Ghosts can possess easily when the sheath of the physical body is separated from the mental sheath, e.g. in dream state, state of despair etc. In some cases this can happen even in a meditative state. Only a higher level ghost can take advantage of the subtle body being separated from the physical body during meditation.



What times the paranormal bodies are most active?



Paranormal bodies are most active during the transitory times like the twilight zone between day and night, the new moon day (dark moon) and full moon day between the waxing and waning phases of moon, eclipses, etc. These are periods with highest likelihood of people being possessed. They are also most active between 12.00 to 3.00 a.m.



How people get possessed?



A ghost takes possession or control of a person through black energy. Black energy is a spiritual negative and harmful type of energy. The ghost infuses black energy into the vulnerable person and makes a centre. And then onwards the ghost goes on to progressively transmit black energy, and make the body his home.



The possessing ghost (demon, devil, negative energy, etc.) covers the sheath of the physical body of the possessed person with its own mental and causal (intellect) body sheaths. By this process the mental and causal body sheaths of the possessed person become non-functional. The person then begins to talk, walk, think and behave according to the new mental body sheaths of the ghost. In a way the possessed person's subconscious mind is now in the control of that particular paranormal body. Most people suffer in silence, there are people who have no idea that they are possessed and lead a normal life.



What are the signs of possession?



A change in character, taste, life-style, few changes that appear suddenly like a person may begin to express cravings he never had before like for specific food, alcohol, drugs, sex or anything else, a person's behavior may change drastically , a complete change in interest, change of voice and behavior. The person may also have wild mood swings.

Sometimes the possessed person has an idea that something is wrong or different is happening, sometime other's point out about the changes.



The most common environments where possessions occur are hospitals, graveyards, funeral homes, wells, battle-fields etc.



Why they trouble?



They want to enter in a person's body or cause trouble due to unfulfilled desires and due to the inability to move on in the after life and attain a higher positive region or sub-region.



The manifestations of distress due to ghosts or negative energies are varied, and can be from a person displaying uncharacteristic behavior to erratic violent behavior, addictions, various physical and psychological illnesses, family problems, business problems etc. Also in case of possession by powerful spirits, the voice and mannerism of person entirely change.



Do ghosts have a gender i.e. are they male or female?



They do not have a physical body. Hence in this perspective there is no gender. But on the basis of the appearance of their subtle form and psychological characteristics, and what they were in the past, they have genders. When ghosts materialize the apparent form is most influenced by the appearance and sex of their immediate prior birth. That is, if the ghost were a female in the human form, it would materialize as a female. Higher order ghosts like sorcerers have the ability to assume a form as per their liking. Sorcerers (Maantriks) are ghosts with very high spiritual power comparable to the spiritual powers of Saints. In order to acquire such levels of spiritual powers, a sorcerer needs to perform intense spiritual practice.



What is the lifespan of a ghost (paranormal body, demon, devil, negative energy, etc.)?



In case of humans, the term ‘lifespan’ means the period between their birth and death. In the case of ghosts, this would signify the period between the subtle bodies becoming ghosts to their eventual rebirth on Earth or going back to the light or heaven. Thus the lifespan of ghosts is varied. In the case of inferior order ghosts, it could be anywhere around 40-400 years. Ghosts that have been relegated to the deeper rungs of Hell and who have lot of powers are instrumental in doing wide-scale harm to humanity can remain as ghosts for thousands of years.



Can paranormal bodies exist or survive in the earth, water or fire?



Yes, all such paranormal bodies can exist or survive in all these areas. This is because ghosts being subtle bodies, i.e. without physical bodies, are unaffected by earth, water or fire.

However ghosts of a lower order like the common ghost or those who have just entered the ghost order fear water or fire, based on the lingering impressions from their human life. This soon passes away as other ghosts educate them about their new status.

GURUSHISHYA,TRADITION,AND PATIENT WAITING IN BETWEEN (must read post)


Here is the new post of the great kaal ugranand saraswati on GURUSHISHYA,TRADITION,AND PATIENT WAITING IN BETWEEN (must read post)
http://kapalika.blogspot.com/2010/05/just-wait.html
Some of the great wisdom of the post is following:-

The sadhak needs to be patient with the path. The path includes Guru, sadhana, and oneself, and the patience with all three aspects makes for a disciplined and serious sadhak.



The vigilance of waiting is a large, spacious, and timeless view/perspective which mirrors the True Nature of Being


The various impulses which "move" a person away from vigilant waiting in this life are the same impulses that cause the conscious to be (seemingly) bound and tossed into the cycle of attached existence.


The good news is that these impulses which cause fickleness can be "burned up" in short time if one will face the energy directly and sit in the fire of sincere waiting.


Those that understand the subtle interaction with Guru and tradition, and understand the true (osmosis like) entering of the current are prepared to wait while those who are in a hurry ("tell me the info quick because I've got somewhere to go") will never truly understand

नक्सलियों ने ४४ लोगों की हत्या की, दंतेवाडा में यात्री बस उडाया



मेरे देश में अशांति लानें वालों ,

यहाँ की जमीं को  खुनी रंग से संगने वालों ,

इंसानों की इस बेरहमी से जन लेने वालों ,

कातिल ,हत्यारे ,जालिम हो  हो तुम ,

 तुम्हारा अंत अब नजदीक ही है ,

इस तरह से तुमने जनता और जवानों का क़त्ल किया है ,

की क़त्ल ही तुमसे अब अपना हिसाब लेगा ,

अवाम की ताकत को तुमने पहचना नहीं है ,

इस धरती की नियत को जाना नहीं है ,

इस धरती को अब उठकर खड़ा होना होगा,

जम्हूरियत को ही अब तुम्हारा हिसाब करना होगा,

अपराधियों ,हत्यारे नक्सलियों ,

तुम्हारा अंत अब निकट ही है  .

भारत माता की जय

Rituals that go wrong



Rituals that go wrong




Magicians are all too eager to hold forth about the rituals that work - the superb invocations, the powerful evocations and the money-working spell after which you find a tenner lying in the street.
 But what about the rituals that don't come off as planned - the invocations when the deity doesn't manifest, the Results Magick that doesn't come up with the goods, and the workings which leave you with a sense of 'was that it?'



Why it don't Work



If a ritual goes wrong, it's because someone got a decimal point wrong somewhere. The explanations that we often use to describe how magick works -  morphic fields, Butterflies flapping their wings, and so forth, are all very well, but reading them, I often get the impression that magick shouldn't, all things considered, miss the mark agency.



What do I mean when I say 'Rites that go Wrong'? In the case of Results Magick (Sorcery) this would refer to spells to bring about a specific condition that haven't manifested yet.



In which case one might argue himself  way out of that one and say that 'the Universe is still working to manifest that one' - i.e. the cheque's in the post. For Invocations, 'going wrong' might be when the deity being summoned fails to turn up.



Of course, a lot of magick doesn't require hardcore results - subtle stuff like personal development & so forth, where you can only judge the 'results' over time.



Results Magic



Results Magick is concerned with bringing about specific changes in your conditions. One of the simplest approaches to Sorcery is using Sigils. The important thing to be stress, is getting your intent as precise as possible - vague 'wishing' tends to vague results.



There are other factors to bear in mind as well.

Then- Sex.

Works doesn't it? Well, most of the time.





A 'traditional' magical line is that you shouldn't place too much strain on the Universe. There is the old age of a magician who does a spell for money and waits for the multiverse to provide.



Invocations:



At group rituals where the deity being called upon descends, not into the chosen priestess or priest, but into someone else. This can be embarrassing for all This isn't so much 'failure' though, as an unexpected level of success.

 Magicians should beware the unexpected.



Performing an invocation if ‘something’ in the area objected. Whatever it was, took the hint, banished.



At Group Magic



Don’t work magic with people who u have doubts about - or simply don't like for very clear reasons. Set this as a rule.

 The people who came down for the do spent the whole time bickering with each other, and generally bringing a bad vibe (man) to the whole thing



The advice of an elder one  best route was to steer clear of "daft buggers" in future. One must follow this rule.

Do a working that is going-to-bloody-well-work! Having said that, be careful to only attempt things which have a good chance of coming off - not straining the fabric of the wossname too much.



It was good practice in disciplining people to do their wee-wees before the ritual and not halfway through the invocations ... mind you, for some people that is their idea of ritual.



But this isn't answering the question of why do Rites Go Wrong? I think Group Dynamics, or perhaps, the lack of awareness of, can explain some occult gaffs.





What will be the Right Attitude?

Not having the rite attitude is probably responsible for a few gaffs.

There was a incidence   in a ritual. There was a couple - not taking it seriously - probably still hoping that after this ritual there would be an orgy after all. Everyone else got their desire manifested. They got their house broken into.

So what's the 'right attitude?'

Difficult to define, but I think playful seriousness probably sums it up for me. Get too serious and you tend to get pompous. Get too playful and you'll get on other people's nerves - possibly including the entities you're working with.



Not Bothering to Banish



Going Loony is a magical mistake. Well, it's supposed to make you a better person, isn't it? So if you end up boring people stupid then you've done a whoopsy somewhere.



Simple guideline: if you go Loony and pull out of it, then it was an 'initiation'. If you stay a Loony then it was a mistake. You might think that you've crossed the abyss, kicked the crap out of Satan and discovered a whole new set of initiation titles for yourself, but if everyone else thinks you're a prat, then its tough shit.

It's easy to do your head in with magick.

If you consistently invoke the same deity, it's quite likely that you'll end up obsessed by that deity. Sure, invoke often, but variety please.

One of the Leeds magia a few years ago did too many invokations of Pan and was last heard of wandering around Newcastle city centre displaying a proud erection and declaiming himself to be the personification of the male principle and where was his Priestess? What he did get was a manifestation of spirits clad in blue..



Confidence/Over-Confidence

With magick, it pays to have a certain amount of confidence - if you're not sure what you're doing, I think that this can sometimes lead to a working going awry.

But with confidence, you can have too much of a good thing. If you're totally confident about how something's going to work out, then you're less likely to adapt quickly if something doesn't happen as you think it should.





Likewise, what do you do when someone won't come out of trance? Leave them to it? Call their name gently? Tickle their feet? Throw a bucket of water over them or slap they round the chops? Books on how-to-do magick don't tend to mention this sort of occurrence - you give the license to depart and off goes the entity back to wherever-it-was they manifested from. You hope.



Sometimes rituals go wrong because something that sounded okay during the planning didn't actually come out right when being done.



Similarly, the problem with becoming over-reliant on other people's ritual scripts is that it's hard to improvise if you're not used to it. After stumbling over the o lines forget 'lines' now and again but if you can't improvise in such moments, then it can lead to a sudden 'deflation' of any ritual atmosphere that's been carefully built up.



Being Wet in style



I think a key point about doing ritual is that if you're going to do it, do it with a bit of jazz - style.



Imagine you're an actor on stage and put a bit of life into. or you are a pilot to take off the boing above the ground.





You may not believe that the Gods you're invoking are real - but you were up on some lofty spiritual plane, would you bother dragging yourself all the way down to the lower astral for some drip who erred, ummed .

Magic works very much on the principle of nothing in, nothing out. If you can at least act as though you're summoning up powerful forces from beyond space and time, you might get somewhere.

If you're into ritual at all then it's quite likely that, somewhere amongst your legion of selves, there's a drama queen screaming for recognition. So be flamboyant. Put on a good show and the gods will reward you, give good reviews, come back for more and tell their friends about you.

And this brings up something else. Asking gods to do things for you. This can be tricky. Asking Kali to blat the guy in the next flat who plays his stereo too loud when you're trying to meditate is a bit like using a tac-nuke to swat a fly with

It is said by some that gods have a different sense of time than we do and our sense of 'now' is a lot different to theirs.





If, at gatherings of the occult, you actually admit to a working going wrong. Some clever dick is bound to point out a flaw in your research. Like, "oh you didn't invoke the wossname through the right portals, nor did you have the right colours on the temple banners and you did the dance widdershins" and that kind of thing.


Nevertheless, there do seem to be some ground rules in certain types of magical operation. Take Goetia. Ooer, yes, summoning demons. A couple of years ago we did a whole series of evocations from the Lesser Key of Solomon. For the first working, we thought "why bother with all this circle & triangle on the floor stuff - we'll just visualise 'em instead." The main result of that was that we both suffered nausea and a 'drained' feeling for a couple of days afterwards - a sort of dark hangover of the soul, I suppose. And the demon didn't come through very clearly. It turned out that Goetic demons have fairly 'traditional' ideas about how they liked to be invoked. None of this trendy stuff for them. Either we did it properly or we'd have a strike on our hands.



Dream weaving/loony



It seems to be a part of magical learning. Whilst you class yourself as a neophyte, you sort of 'expect' things to go wrong, and are continually over-stating the consequences of what 'orrible thing might appear if you do something wrong.



Once you've knocked around for a bit, you're more confident about what you're doing and when something does go wacky, you're often less prepared for it.




Magick involves taking risks.



If nothing else, getting into a sticky situation will give you a new perspective on things

One of those experiences of when you think you're awake At the time though, it really threw a scare into u, and it gave u a deeper respect for magick. So that was okay, in the end. Ah the days of youthful folly.





It may be that we learn far more about magick and ourselves when things don't quite go according to plan. magick was not as easy as some people make it out to be.



Magick, like life, is wacky, weird and wonderful.



It's never ceased to amaze me that by standing in a room, waving your arms about, and spouting awful verse, you can change the atmosphere, how you feel, and possibly set off a stochastic process that will result (more or less) in what you want to happen, happening.

We can theorise, argue, and woffle pedantically all we like, but the core of the mystery I don't think will ever be pinned down.



I think it's extremely difficult to judge magical results entirely in terms of success and failure.



My experiences with doing magical sigils for example, have shown me that quite often, the results don't manifest until I've thought "well bugger this that was a waste of time" - and then they pop up.

Some magical approaches do in fact recommend that you work occasionally for a negative result - and the opposite will come along in due course. Any magical act should be instructive, especially when it doesn't go the way you planned.



Let me finish then, with some magical axioms to bear in mind



1-Invoke Often


2-Banish Often


3-Do it with Style


4-Keep a sense of perspective     



5-When caught out - Improvise

GURUDEV'S STRICT ADVICE ( on akshaya tritiya  )


"Do not allow mr a and mr d to your rite. Today your rite went to a big failure because of mr a's worng attitude "
