Om Kriya Babaji Nama Aum (Melanie Chanting)
In the year 203 A. D, a boy called Nagarajan was born in what is now the seaport town of Porto Novo (Parangippertai) near Chidambaram on the eastern coast of India. At the age of six he was kidnapped by a slave trader and taken to Dacca. He was later released and migrated to Benares where at the age of fifteen he became a renowned Sanskrit scholar.
Discontent with his early success and destined for a greater end, he sailed by boat to the powerful shrine of Kathir-kamam on the southern coast of Sri Lanka. For 18 months he plunged into meditation and analyzed the different philosophical systems threadbare. Here in Kathir-Kamam he was fortunate to meet one of the 18-siddas called Boganathar or Bhogar. Drawing inspiration from this great Siddha of Science, Boganathar, he was able to appreciate and understand the full significance of Siddhantha, Yoga and Samadhi and he accepted the challenge of attaining (Soruba-Samadhi or immortality).
As directed by Bhogar and following the inner call, he wandered throughout South India and was initiated into the mysteries of Kundalini Yoga by the great Tamil Siddha, Agastyar Maharishi at Coutralam. As directed by sage Agasthiar he retired to a lonely Himalayan cave, at Badrinath, and remained absorbed in intensive Yogic sadhana for years at a stretch, finally to emerge LAUGHING AT THE LIMITATIONS OF DEATH (Soruba-samadhi). ”Soruba samathikku adayalam ethu entrakkal chudar polak kanumeda thula thekam” (translation: In Soruba samadhi the physical body will glow with golden lustre).....siddhas.
The immortal Babaji made his own contributions to the nucleus given him by Sage Agastyar, renamed it “Kriya yoga” and has retained his form through the centuries tapping many, speaking to a few and materializing to give darshan to his saintly chosen. For centuries he worked behind the scenes as the source of inspiration and guidance to past Kriya Masters like Adi- Shankara, Kabir Das, Lahiri Mahasaya, Yogi SAA Ramaiah and many others. Thus He is the climax of the Eighteen Tamil Yoga Siddhas tradition, which includes Thirumoolar, Ramadevar, Kumbamuni, Konkanavar, Sattamuni, Karuvoorar Sundaranandar, Valmiki, Nandidevar, Paambati, Boganathar, Machchamuni, Patanjali, Dhanvanthri, Goraknath, Kudhambai and Idaikkadar.........by Yogi SAA Ramaiah.

Babaji was born on November 30th Thursday 203AD, at Porto-Novo in Tamil Nadu, India, when Saturn ascending in his Lagana (Libra), Rishipa-Rashi and Rohini Nakshatra. The Master is always with you; he will protect and deliver you to your ista-devathai.
This year master Babaji’s birthday falls on Tuesday, 3rd Dec 2017, Rohini star, ), but will be celebrated on the 19th Sunday Nov 2016.
Surrender completely and entirely to him. His blessings will transform your body, mind and soul. Make a special effort daily to light a lamp or a candle to reember Babaji and say some prayers according to your own religious beliefs. This will bring you closer to Master Babaji, as promised by him: “If you take one-step towards me, I will take two-steps towards you”…...........Babaji
Pray and meditate daily for your family’s peace, your country’s peace and for the world peace. Group-prayer (collective-prayer) is more effective. Even when you are praying on your own, you are assured there will be always two-people, one is you and the other is Babaji.
Others who cannot be present for whatever reasons may be included mentally. Prayers are more effective when you pray for others. Non-Violence and Compassion for all living beings is Master’s message. Prayer calms the mind, fills one with love and keeps the mind in tune with Master Babaji.
Prayers said with a sincere heart will be answered. If not now will be answered one day... Surrender everything to Babaji. He will take complete charge of you. Let Him work through you. Make yourself an instrument of Master Babaji. “ . ” “En Kadan Pani seithu kidappathu. Un Kadan Adiyenaiyum Thanguthal” . Explanation: My duty is to serve. Your duty is to carry me on your shoulders”
He will remove all defects and weaknesses in us and make us strong. Call him with the same love with which Drowpadai called Krishna. You will surely meet Master in this very life or at
least his presence. Develop this love for him. Feel his presence everywhere physically, mentally, vitally, intellectually and spiritually. Strive ceaselessly to fix your mind on Babaji. Constantly behold your Beloved in all forms. Silently repeat his mantra: “Om Kriya Babaji Nama Aum”. Sing his names. Wake up at Brahmamuhurtha (3-6 am). There is a spiritual presence and mysterious silence, during this hour and there is more Pranic energy in the air which will give you a fresh clear mind.
All saints, sages and Yogis practice yoga sadhana during this hour and send spiritual vibrations to all living beings throughout the entire world. You will be highly benefited by these vibrations if you start your prayer, japa and meditation during this hour. The meditation state of the mind will come by itself by divine grace.
Gaze at the picture of your Ista Deva or the Sathguru Deva for a few minutes and close your eyes. Then try to visualize the picture mentally. You will have a well-defined or clear cut picture. When it fades, open your eyes and gaze. Repeat this process 3 or 4 times. You will be able to visualize clearly your Ista Devata mentally, after some months practice. If you find it difficult to visualize the whole picture, try to visualize any part of the picture. Continuous practice will make it perfect. The thoughts you create in your mind and the images you form in your life will help you in making what you are or what you would become. If you constantly think of Sathguru Babaji, you will become one with him. It is not a coincidence that Karthigai Deepam (on Karthigai-Star —Nakshathiram) is celebrated a day before Babaji’s Birthday (Rohini Star). This year Karthigai Deepam falls on 12th December, 2016
