The Month of Vaisakh (April 13 - May 13)

A life without fragrance is a wasted life. An awakening in nature is taking place. Where are you?

Glorious Vaisakh.
Boughs adorned.

I, too,
Yearn adornment.

I hear
Whispers...

My mind is in constant turmoil? I long for serenity.

Look at nature, my child. Fauna and flora are preparing to blossom. Intuitively, they know their place in the cycle of life. Make the Divine your anchor. Serenity will flow.

I feel so lost, so disconnected.

When Maya engulfs consciousness, disconnect takes place.

What is Maya?

Anything that creates a barrier in experiencing your Divinity is Maya – an illusion.

I don't understand.

When the anchor in life is love of wealth, fame, family, that is Maya. One’s thoughts, words and deeds take on the color of Maya. It becomes the master. It owns you.

On the other hand, when the Divine becomes the anchor, one’s thoughts, words and actions become Divine-oriented. Family becomes a Divine Gift. Wealth and fame become mere tools in this journey. Life takes on a different color. One marches to a different tune.

Decide: Who is going to be the anchor in your life? This choice is solely yours.

It’s going to be difficult.

Nothing of worth is easy. If you chose the Divine as your anchor, be prepared to be chiseled. Chiseling is painful. The fruit of this chiseling is serenity. It has its own unique fragrance. A life without fragrance is a wasted life. Look around you. An awakening in nature is taking place. The trees are being adorned with new leaves. Raise your consciousness. Connect with the Divine. Allow your creativity to also blossom and bloom.

Is the month of Vaisakh special?

All months, seasons, dates, days are special.
All hours, minutes, seconds are special.
All lead innately to the Divine.
Raise your consciousness.

Soak in Sabad
Await Union …

No More Blue Stars

In recent years, diasporic Sikhs have been moving to consciously avoid using the terms Operation Blue Star or Holocaust and instead use terms like the Battle of Amritsar, genocide, or Ghallughara when speaking about June and November 1984.
