The Art of Mindful, Meditative Eating
Baba Lokenath never said don't eat this, don't eat that. He only said, "ahaar karo mone karo ahuti die Shyama ma ke" meaning, while eating mindfully offer the food to the fire inside your stomach, as if you are offering an oblation to the sacrificial fire. This is the art of mindful meditative eating. When you eat as Baba says, you will not only be healthy and happy but you will be progressing in your spiritual pursuit, for your mind is deeply influenced by the food you eat and with what attitude you take your food. Jai Baba Lokenath!
Inscrutable Are the Ways of the Sadguru!
When Baba decided to leave his mortal body he called his little child Janaki Brahmachari, whom he initiated and transformed into a yogi of high stature, to take charge of the ashram of Baradi. Janaki was thinking in his mind how could he run the ashram? Baba lovingly said, after i leave my body you will find Rs.2. every day under my asan (mat spread) and that will take care of the ashram expenses. Janaki used to sweep Baba's room as the first morning worship, and used to find that money everyday after Baba left his body. That money was good enough to take care of the expenses of the ashram. Inscrutable are the ways of Sadguru!! Jai Brahma Lokenath! Shuddhaanandaa Brahmachari
Chant Jai Baba Lokenath and All Is Well!
Baba Lokenath reaches out to every soul on earth who is seeking light and then starts to bring a higher state of consciousness through simple things of daily life. One thing i would tell you, you don't have to do much, you don't even need any mantra, just chant the Holy name of Baba "Jai Baba Lokenath" in your heart and feel that Baba watching you with his non-blinking eyes. Just imagine someone just loves you only for you, not for anything that you possess, just unconditionally, would you not give your heart to him or her? Same is with Baba, just pure love, unconditional love, like a child to her mother, that is what is wanted. Nothing else. Feel he surrounds you wherever you are with his ever-protective energy field. Feel that whatever you do, he is truly doing it. Feel that you have nothing to do, but to be conscious of what all you are called upon to do. Be prayerful, grateful, mindful and kind.

Baba Will Transform You Into Gold Too!
Surathnath Brahmachari was completely transformed by the Divine touch of Baba Lokenath. Surathnath had every vice under the sun, but Baba gave him love without picking on the bad habits and fallen character. Surathnath said this about Baba, "Even a fallen soul like me also got transformed into pure gold by Baba's grace and guidance". Whatever may be your past, whatever may be biting you as guilt, know this for sure, Baba is pure forgiveness, pure love, so he will not find fault with you, while the world will do so. What is needed is your innocent surrender and remembrance of His Holy Name. He will transform YOU TOO into gold!! Jai Baba Lokenath!! Shuddhaanandaa Brahmachari
Knowledge of Self Only Way to Liberation
"Knowledge of the Self is the only way to liberation. Devotion is the essence. Mantra, etc., are the supportive aspects. Move along the path with devotion and love, and who can obstruct your way? You are all my children!" This is the most powerful message of Baba Lokenath. If you are asked what path Baba Lokenath teaches? This is the essence of his teaching. Not until we know about our Self can we find Moksha. Darshan of gods and goddess and saints are inspiration on the path but cannot give liberation. To attain that Self knowledge for the common masses he says Bhakti or devotion is the essence. Mantra sadhana keeps you in tune with the Self within. He says, practice every little act of worship with a touch of your heart, with love, with devotional surrender. The ego will gradually get metamorphosed into the higher self, the Atman. With Baba holding you and leading the path, you can never go wrong. Move forward. Don't look back. All is well.
The Depth of Baba’s Compassion
A devotee comes to Baba and cries in deep pain of the guilt she has been suffering with. Baba says, "Why do you think the sin is yours? It is I who is sitting in the root of your mind from where come all your desires. I take the responsibility of the transgressions. Go you are free now." Imagine the depth of Baba's compassion. Did you ever hear anyone saying something like this in the world? Yes Baba is Love and forgiveness personified. Surrender to Baba's lotus feet and all is well. Jai Shiva Lokenath! Shuddhaanandaa Brahmachari
Baba Meets None Other Than Himself
What does Baba Lokenath mean when he says " I have traveled in the hills and mountains, in the jungles and forests, all over the world, but could only see Myself. You will not understand why I love you all so much, why I am sharing your miseries and unhappiness. " Of all species of life, it is only in humans and in the mind of humans that the question arises 'Who am I?" This is the prelude to a unique journey that humans accept at some point of time in life, to explore and experience the reality beyond all that appears on the peripheral physical manifestations. This journey is the ultimate journey of human manifestation. Only man can accept this challenge of walking a path that is beyond the mind to the world of complete transcendence, to the world beyond duality and multiplicity. Baba Lokenath traversed that path through the most intense penance, and Sadhana, both in the plains and in the snow capped Himalayas, to be the living Buddha. He made it very clear that he met none but himself, whom he saw as manifest in all of existence. This is the essence of Self-knowledge, where the yogi sees the world inseparable from his enlightened Self. Baba said, "When I realized my Self, I felt a deep urge to heal those who are suffering in this world", this is the natural state of a compassionate Master. He was like living Shiva who has come down from his astral heights to the physical world to hold the seekers by hand and take them to the their inner world of peace and blessedness.

Be In the World Yet Not Be Worldly
Baba Lokenath transformed ordinary householders into yogis of high order. This is a message. He did not create band of sannyasins and brahmacharins, but worked with householders to show to the world that you need not have to renounce the so called world to be a yogi, but you can be family person yet following his instructions and taking shelter under him you can reach high state of Yoga. Baba is Yogeshwara. True renunciation is being in the world yet not be worldly. Jai Baba Lokenath! Shuddhaanandaa Brahmachari
Baba Lokenath Lives In The Sanctum Of Your Heart
Baba says my gifts to you are scattered all over the earth, and I live in the very sanctum of your heart. Seek me first within you, leave all your responsibilities to Me, and see for yourself how I take care of the smallest details of your daily life. So many times so many things happen to you, you are in awe, how could this happen, it happened because I am holding the radar of your boat. I am with you Now and for ever. Jai Brahma Lokenath! Shuddhaanandaa Brahmachari
Baba Lokenath Never Fails You
I have heard from poorest of the poor and the most privileged of the society that when they fell in bad times they prayed to all known gods, but none replied, until they opened their heart in prayer to Baba Lokenath to see them through the troubled time. Baba never failed. He always kept his promise to remain your best friend, when every other friend has deserted you. He is the ultimate embodiment of love and compassion. Chant his holy name in your heart and all is well. Jai Baba Lokenath! Shuddhaanandaa Brahmachari
