A follower of my Guru sent me this. In the photo is Ram Dass’ Guru, Maharaji. The little statue is Hanuman, the monkey God. His followers say that Maharaji is an incarnation of Hanuman. That’s a lot to take in, but needless to say- I’m pretty thankful. These came all the way from India. I thought some of you may appreciate it.
This is Neem Karoli Baba, or as his followers called him- Maharaji. He’s Ram Dass’ guru. My guru, Babaji, follows him. In the Upanishads, one of the writers describes God, Guru, and Self as one thing. While Guru can be in a body, it’s not limited to that just as Christ isn’t limited to the body of Jesus. Guru is in the trees, wind, mushrooms, clouds, birds, and breath.
I wanted to share this with some folks who may be trying to reconstruct and who share a curiosity for what may be out there.
I’ve been pretty open about my life on here because I feel pretty comfortable. I thought it would be interesting for some to share a picture of my guru to others. I became intrigued with Hinduism through Ram Dass and it was ultimately him and some folks who are in his circle that led me to Babaji. I remember the first time I saw a picture of Ram Dass’ guru. I saw love in his eyes. With babaji, I experience that as well. He’s in India, but I’m blessed to know him over the web.
I’m just star stuff that breathes the same air as you.
