Is bEkarAri mein ajab sa maza hai,
Intezaar mein bhi anokha nasha hai!

Unki aawaz sunne ko dil aisa tarse,
Jaise pyaasi dharti baadal ko tarse!

Jab barsega bArish, mein bheegkar chA jaaoon,
Un baathon ki sailaab mein doobkar aakhir kho jaaoon.

Jab dil diye baithe hain!!

Shikvon ko kya ginen,
Jab dil hi de baite hain?

Darde dil kya sunaayen,
Jab dil hi de baite hain?

Kisse kya doharaayen,
Jab dil hi diye baite hain?

Khafa aakhir kisse ho,
Jab dil hi de baite hain?

Jab taareef taqleef banjaaye,
Woh rishta bhi kaise ho?

Jab taqleef hi tehazeeb banjaaye,
Woh mohabat bhi kaise ho?

Kya mushkil, kya aasan hai yaara?
Pyaar mein tho sirf pyaar hota hai!

Unke khayaalon mein bhi yaara,
Ajab sa ek nashaa hi hota hai!!

ಯಾರ ನೆಲ, ಯಾರ ಬನ ? ಪರಶಿವನೇ ಹೇಳು

ನಿನ್ನ ವನ , ನಿನದಲ್ಲವೇ ನೆಲವು ?
ನೀನಲ್ಲವೇ  ಬಾನು, ಜೀವ ತಣಿಸುವಾ ಗಂಗಾ ಜಲವು!

ನಾನು ನನದೆಂಬ ಈ ಕಿತ್ತಾಟಗಳ  ನಡುವೆ,
 ಮರೆತು ನಿಂತಿದೆ ನಿನ್ನ, ಈ ಮೂಢ ಮನವು!

ನಿನ್ನ ಧ್ಯಾನವ ತೊರೆದು, ಮತಿಗೆಡುವ ಮೂಢ ಜನ,
ಸತ್ಯಕ್ಕೆ ಬೇಕಿನ್ನೂ ಇದಕಿಂತ  ಅವಮಾನ ?

 ಸಂತೆಯಿದು  ಎಂತಹದೋ? ಎಂತಹದಿದು ಕಥೆಯೋ?
ನಗು ಬರುವ ಹಾಗೆ ಇದೆ, ಇದು ಎಂತಹಾ ವ್ಯಥೆಯೋ?

ನೀನು ಸೃಷ್ಟಿಸಿದ ಈ ಲೋಕ , ನಿನಗೇ ಇಲ್ಲವಂತೆ,
ಯಾರದೆಂದು ಬಗೆ ಹರಿಸು, ಬಂದಿಹೆಯಲ್ಲ  ಎನ್ನ  ತಂದೆ!

Intezaar ki ghadiyaan hain,
Tham jo gaye hain!
Unki yaadon mein aakhen jaise,
Nam ho gaye hain.

Intehaan mohabat ki hai,
Kahin rooth na jaana.
Ey dil, judaai ka aalam hai,
Kahin toot na jaana.

Sun aahaton ko sahi
Woh kabhi to aayenge?
Bikhre hue is rooh ko
Kabhi to jod paayenge?

Kabhi to aayegi bahaar? Kabhi to sajegi zindagi chookar sacha pyaar?
Kyaa intezaar mein rahenge hum yun hi umr bhar?

Intezar bhi ishq ki tarah hota hai,
Na khatam hone waali ek mukaam hota hai!!

Aayine mein jhaanka tho khud ko humne,
Par dekha to aaphi ko humesha dil ne!

Is dard mein hum mar mitjaayenge,
Kya khoya woh kabhi khoj nahin paayenge

Raahi kayin hain lekin,
Raasta aakhir mein ek  hai.
Kahin na kahin to milenge aap,
Phir kya gham hai?

Jab intezaar hi zindagi banjaaye,
To yeh kya kam hai?

Jab tak hai dum...

Jab tak hain hum,
Kya tab tak hain dum?

Phir soch kis baath ki raahi?
Din bhi tho hain, bahut kam!

Apne paraaye ke is khel mein gum,
Kya sapna aur kya hai veham?

Is saazish mein ulajhti hai zindagi,
Jab tak na mile uska reham.

Uski aanchal mein jhoomle,
To kya khushi hai aur kya gham?

Isha Yoga - Way of life!

Frequent attacks of migraine since I was 13 years old, vertigo to the extent that I would just fall off trying to get off my bed. Unbearable stress within leading to multiple health issues from breathlessness, chest pain to suspected blood clot in my heart. Multiple scans, frequent and wasteful trips to hospitals for several years. I was prescribed 20 tablets for morning and 15 for night by famous neuros. Eternal gastric trouble. I would take hours to eat as it just wouldn't get down my throat since my childhood. Broken relationships, tanned and torn trusts, frustrated heart, suicide attempts, almost on the verge of a collapse. This is just a fraction of what I was going through until I got initiated by Sadhguru himself for Shambhavi Mahamudra in 2011. Within three months of regular practice, all these health problems simply vanished. I did a programme called bhava spandana in 2011 dec with Isha and It transformed me into someone who carried no grudge or ill feeling for anyone whom I felt were responsible for my misery till then. I realised that I alone am responsible for my misery or joy. In the last 5 years after I got associated with isha, all the challenges, whether it was lack of money to manage myself and my child all by myself when my salaries were delayed (I had my siblings and close friends who were always willing to support, yet, it was not easy to accept the fact that I had to depend and trouble others to get going) when I had no one to take care of her after school hours while I was at work striving to earn for survival, isha yoga made me go through everything gracefully and joyfully (quite amazingly) and I experienced how support came from unbelievable sources at times...Today after 5+ years of practice, quite miraculously, I am happily settled with my loving husband again, living a life filled with contentment and joy that can never be expressed in words. I am blessed with the clarity and ability to handle any situation without making judgement about either the situation or the people involved. The way I experience life today has changed immensely and quite intensely to say the least. The way I respond to my child, my friends , my mother in law or even my maid has changed dramatically. And this is not what I am saying. This is what they are all telling me!!! I saw my cravings and compulsiveness dropping off naturally. I can't even articulate the transformation I have undergone within me that is leading me to experience life the way I am experiencing today. I have grown within from an absolutely miserable and stressed being into a joyful self. Though there is still a long way to go... I am what I am today because of grace of my master. I can see myself constantly evolving and aware of my mistakes and faults, thus helping me to act as appropriate. Even if I dedicated my life, there is no way I can repay what isha has bestowed upon me. It's unfortunate to see false allegations on a "movement" , A silent and subtle revolution! (Calling it an "organisation" actually does not do any justice) that has transformed so many millions of lives. It only strengthens our determination to work more intensely and quickly as isha volunteers to go and spread what we have experienced. It's more evident now that we have no time to waste and that we must focus all our energies towards Sadhguru's vision to provide these wonderful and powerful tools to every single human being that can transform their lives and themselves towards well being. Isha did not change or force me. Isha simply transformed me and enabled me to become graceful and do what's appropriate always, no matter what kind of force I face along my journey.
NamO namaha shri guru pAdukAbhyAm


Posting below what was pouring out of me as I experienced life after my association with isha when I was still on my own with my child.

Saturday, August 24, 2013  Gracefully YOURS forever

In fear, I fell at YOUR feet helplessly
Giving up in anguish and sad like never
Wandering in the tides, weeping in the deep woods
Lost like a dry leaf that swayed to a terrible whither!!

YOU picked me up in YOUR arms just like a mother
Held me so close that I felt your bosom touch me like a soft feather

The warmth and the love YOU showered saved me from the horror
of the day and the night and the climate and the weather

Oh! Can I ever count the blessings that YOU shower?
Unconditional and Timeless, yet on time and in chime

How beautifully you craft our lives, that I truly wonder!
I rejoice in your lap, like a small child that has played never

I have nothing to seek, nothing to pray for any longer
For I live now and will live on with YOUR grace forever and ever...
