Let's transform our lives! - Mannibhadra Sadhana

Success is not attained in life by just taking birth. For progress in life and for achieving totality one needs to be in contact with a great soul who can bestow totality in life. Paaras (philosopher's stone) converts every metal that comes in its contact into gold. If we wish to make life brilliant and shining like gold then we shall have to pledge today to work for transformation of our lives. We have to assimilate within, the divine knowledge given by revered Sadgurudev and through Sadhanas we have to make life successful and total.

Dear disciples,
Dear I call those who are linked to my soul and are quickly progressing on the path shown to them by me. They are filled with enthusiasm, joy and a determination to do something great in life. There is nothing in fact that they cannot accomplish.

All of you, be you a reader of the magazine, a Sadhak or a disciple, if you have obeyed me, if you have accomplished a Sadhana gifted to you by me then you sure have accomplished a great task. You have already taken the first step towards becoming a great ocean of knowledge. An ocean hides within its depths great treasures and precious gems and pearls.

I am your creator. You are all in my heart and my lips whisper your names fondly. When seen from the shore the ocean appears very ordinary. But once one dives into it, one realises that there is great treasure in its depths. The magazine appears every week so that your treasure could go on expanding and you could gather new and more precious pearls from it.

I feel proud of you that you are are ready to transform your lives and now you stand at the juncture where you can just step forward and have all that you wish for. And for all of you are moving towards this very goal.

All of you are with me for the past many lives because a soul is never separated from Supreme. Just as old and worn out clothes are discarded and thrown away and new clothes are worn over the same body, similarly through the process of death and birth a new body is gained although the soul remains the same. I am related to you spiritually.

You well know that life is one in which every moment something new happens. But for newness it is necessary for you to experience the fragrance emanating from my soul and assimilate the fragrance in your own soul. When this happens you shall never feel weak, cowardly or helpless in life.

I am trying to tell you, I am warning you not to become lifeless. Just as standing water stagnates and start to stink, similarly your life is stagnating. Your life is restricted to the limit of society, caste and nation. Everyone around is filled with jealousy and poison of hatred and doubt. Everyone is fighting with somebody and you too could be crushed in one such fight. Just being born and dying one day is not life. Life means enthusiasm, vigour and high spirit. This is what I am trying to instill into you each moment and every second.

With the fragrance of my knowledge and my consciousness I am instilling into you the capability and determination to face all adversities with a spirit of challenge.

You can do this because you are linked to the source of divine fragrance, to the ocean of Sadhanas, to the source of divine consciousness. I am calling out to all those who are a part of my heart and soul and who are ready to do anything that I tell them. I will not allow their lives to be incomplete. I won't allow you to wonder about aimlessly.

I shall lead you onto the the right path and tell you how to make life beautiful and wonderful. I want you to become bright like sun so that you could banish darkness from the lives of millions, so that you could become a guiding torch for the society.

Who shall make you understand all this ? Who shall show you the right path?

Only a Sadguru can lead you onto the right path. Others can only make on waver from the right path. You should know well that Guru is not a mass of flesh and blood.

Guru is the ocean of knowledge which can introduce you to the power of transformation. The power is within you which you are not able to see. The darkness within is not allowing you to know your own powers.

It is to remove darkness with that the light of Guru Sadhana has been gifted to you by me. In this light you can easily identify your powers.

Sadhana is the light which can illuminate your whole life. Sadhana is the flower which can make your life joyous with its fragrance. Sadhana is the weapon with which one can emerge victorious in every sphere of life and transform one's life completely.

This is why I am presenting to you an invincible weapon in the form of Sadhana through which you can overcome all adverse circumstances and transform your life completely. Every Sadhak remains eager to accomplish this Sadhana and remains waiting for moments when this Sadhana could be successfully accomplished.

This Sadhana is accomplished on the birthday of the Sadguru i.e 21st of April which presents very auspicious moments when new flowers blossom and when a new year starts for the Sadhak.

In these moments the whole life can be transformed. In these very moments this very powerful Sadhana called Mannibhadra Prayog is accomplished which through its divinity can make life more joyous and spiritual.

Mannibhadra Sadhana overflows with the energy of transforming life whose essence is meant to be assimilated in one's heart, body and soul. It is only then that one can be free of darkness of ignorance. I wish to put an end to your sins through this Sadhana and after that shall start the process of new creation.

Sadhana Process

One needs a Mannibhadra Yantra and Navmanni rosary for the Sadhana. Early in the morning get up and seated on the bed itself join both palms and pray to Gurudev and seek his blessings for success in Mannibhadra Prayog which you intend to accomplish later in the day. Then get up and have a bath. Wear yellow clothes and cover yourself with Guru Peetambar.

Then sit on a yellow mat facing East. In a plate draw a swastik with vermilion and on it place a Yantra. On the Yantra place the rosary and on both offer flowers, rice grains, incense and light a ghee lamp.

After the worship chant seven rounds of the following Mantra with Navmanni rosary.

Om Mannibhadraay Navsrityei Om Namah

After the Mantra chanting replace the rosary on the Yantra and having offered flowers on the Yantra pray to the Guru for transforming your life and blessing with wealth, prosperity, benefits from the state side, health and mental peace.

Do this Sadhana early morning daily for three days

After three days tie the Yantra and rosary in a yellow cloth and drop the bundle in a river or pond.

The Sadhana is very simple and free of complex worship procedures but it is very powerful indeed.

It might seem to be a very small ritual but it is instilled with amazing powers that can make the whole life of the Sadhak successful and brilliant.

Just by sitting in the holy feet of the Guru all divine powers can be gained. You might think that this is a very easy thing to do. But it is not so simple as it sounds. For this one has to go against one's beliefs and has to become ego less. Just by saying I am ego less won't make you humble. The process of becoming ego less means obeying each command of the Guru.
