Wani Yoga - Lesson 14

Speak to express not to impress

You must always speak to express yourself. Any effort to impress others while speaking does not bring about the necessary result. In fact, it may even alienate your listener/ listeners. People expect you to express an honest opinion; no-body wants to be influenced by artificial means.

When you try to impress others, your body language, your voice and the very language used, make it apparent to a discerning listener that you are cooking up a story. No one is the interested in that.
Whenever you try to feign a style just to show off; it puts people off. So the best thing is to be your natural self. Develop a style by all means. But it should be your own natural style
.
Your speech must be preceded by your desire to express yourself.

In the circumstances, I consider, Wani Yoga is a discipline which can be best practiced in our old Gura-Shishya tradition. Guru is always his own real self. He is keen that his disciples receive the maximum advantage of his training. His happiness lies in his disciples; in helping them achieve their goals. Wani Yoga enables you to have total control of your mind, body, body language and the language used by you in communication. The trainer or the coach can monitor your progress only if he or she follows this Guru-Shishiya tradition in the true sense.

I am informed by a friend of mine that today happens to be birthday of Adi Shankaracharya who was one of the greatest gurus propagating Guru-Shishiya Parampara.

Guruvaar - the day devoted to the Guru! (Thursday)



In our Scriptures, Thursday has been described as the day when we can express our devotion to our Guru. Likewise the Guru bestows all his / her blessings on the devotees on this special day.

Sai Baba never claimed that he has special powers. In fact, he never was keen to enlarge his following by soliciting or any other such action. In fact he lived the life of a saint. The simplicity of his life was the essence of his philosophy. He propagated helping others, love for all, forgiveness, and contentment. These put together only can bring inner peace.

We find certain similarities in the teachings of Guru Nanak Devji and Sant Kabir. Here is more like Kabir who did not found any religion. In fact that is the essence of our Hindu religion. When we remove the ritual practices, we find that our religion teaches all what Sai Baba propagated. This is a good reason why his devotees are increasing by the day. It is not only people from Shridi, Maharashtra, or people from India, but Sai Baba is emerging as a true Guru for people around the world.

His devotees throughout the world remember him with respect on this special day - Guruvaar that is Thursday.
