Om Namo Narayanam



om namo narayanam



I am deeply indebted to debyemm for her kind help in drafting this blog.


Aware of my “I am”, I chose a path of humility. Many, many years ago, during my wandering, I came across a big lake. A beautiful lake. Being very tired I decided to rest under the shadow of a tree near the lake….and I slept.


I had a dream … in my dream I saw a Hindu Brahmin coming to the lake. He collected the pure water from the lake and called it “Jal”. On the other side of the lake, I saw another person approaching the lake. He was a Muslim, and he too collected water from the lake. He called it “Paani”. As I was watching the Muslim, I saw a Christian approaching the lake. He also collected, and …yes … called it “water”.


Time passed, and in early 2005, I thought of finally “retiring”. But in meditation, which occupies me daily, I heard a voice “you have unfinished work”.


Hearing the call, I left Suradevi.


And I discovered Gaia, pure, vibrant, kind, and loving.


It was all DIVINE WILL.


As I started posting blogs and participating in various groups I was blessed to come close to the Angels of Gaia.


In one of my blogs How the body, mind and soul are related, I expressed the vision “I wish someone would compile the verses/sayings from all the different sources from ALL RELIGIONS about the SAME subject. Truth is same, and it would be an enlightening experience for all to see how everyone speaks the same truth”. To my utter joy and gratitude, I found others here who shared that desire deep in their hearts and One Light Many Windows, the group project, was born.


Now another Divine Vision becomes manifest in the 9:09 Gaia Minute. I ask that any who have found connection with me here at Gaia, join together with others who have already begun this combined prayer. In many places throughout Gaia – for example, in Gaia Community Vision, in The God Pod, in Living Metaphysics, In Passing, in Meeting Love, in Walking the Labyrinth, in World Heritage Society, in Intergral Veg*n, in several others as well as in One Light Many Windows - there are links to this contemplative practice we are called to.


Please feel free to cross-link to these or any others that you may find, and write about it in your blog, place links upon your Profile Pages; that word of this prayer time can ripple ever outward, amplifying and bringing together massive numbers of human spiritual energy conduits, ever increasing exponentially.


This project asks only that you observe solemn and spiritual silence with gratitude for our Mother Earth and all the ways she cares for us as part of herself. May we understand in our hearts how deep and true and powerful her Mother-love for each of us is. We are some part of her. May we be mindful that our highest qualities are a reflection of her highest qualities. May we be mindful that our Mother Earth is the source of all sustenance and the nurturing of our very lives. In contemplation, may we realize truly our inextricable ONENESS with our Mother Earth.


Now, it is time, for me to finally leave. I am going to a place, where I will no longer have access to the internet, but you may send messages to my heart, I will hear them within that space. Never give up on love.


I am confident that twice each day, morning and night, for 9 minutes beginning at 9:09, in each participant’s time zone, this Divine Mandate – will join my heart with yours in combined prayer. An hourly wave that takes place on opposite sides of the globe simultaneously, every hour. Every hour, somewhere, it will be 9:09.


Please consider also, if both morning or night at 9:09 in your time zone, does not work for you, that you may also define time by the word MUHURTA, the moment of NOW. As noted, at 9 past the hour, someone, somewhere, will eventually be part of this prayer project and will be meditating with you.


I am confident that this final wish of mine - that we join together in combined prayer, as agreed to by all you beautiful Gaians, will enable my work now begun here, to continue for many years, after I am gone.

As I bid farewell, a voice, deep and sonorous
from the ocean of my consciousness


I love you.


The invisible minds working silently,
while we join discussions, create groups, post blogs,
the silent invisible souls, always watchful, keeping us safe,
to the souls so wonderful,
with a heart thankful,
may I say,
I love you.


The quietly, elegant lady,
holding Gaia ship steady,
with immense wisdom and warm love,
like a watchful mother,
as she walks with us together,
with complete trust in the collective wisdom,
to the one who never makes her weight felt,
with deep bows I say,
I love you.


To a peaceful arrow, which went right into my heart,
where I hold it with gratitude, deep affection and humility
O ! dear friend,
till eternity,
I love you.

The lady, who helps Gaia silently,
by weeding out spams every day,
greeting new members lovingly.
rarely would one realize
that her “Hello” is indeed a sunrise,
to this saintly lady,
who has tasted the nectar of spirituality,
I say, with utmost humility,
I love you.

With compassion heartful,
a soul so beautiful,
always holding and softly caressing, those who have experienced
the passing of a loved one from this planet,
she, who gifted me,
the soulful Lotus picture, which you see,
as a “farewell gift to her friend”,
a friendship which will never end.
I receive immense light,
emanating from her soul so bright,
“I'm learning”, in her humility she would say,
to her, tenderly, I say,
I love you.


My secret keeper,
who holds the key with a loving smile,
of my Gaia profile,
who suggested that it be enshrined,
O! dear friend, shoulder to shoulder we walk,
you know how much,
I love you.

My first friend on Gaia, who held my hand
on Gaia's wonderland,
to my Valentine,
I love you.


My swimmer brother,
the meaning of your name
and “Lord of Universe” are the same,
I offer my blessings for your daughter,
Namaste to you,
I love you,


The one who is always there, when it needs mending,
when discussions are demanding,
missing her night's sleep,
staying up late to go deep,
into hearts, and heal,
her loving warmth I feel,
as she walks the path with me.
to her, with my deepest respect, I say,
I love you.


The one with profound knowledge of the Ancient works of wisdom,
I express my gratitude.
Thank you, my respected brother,
I love you.


All my beloved brothers,
my cherished sisters,
my fellow travelers,
this journey would never have been so joyful,
without your love, your comments, so mindful,
I love you.


To My Mata, I offer my humble pranaams,
bowing my head,
seeking blessings for the journey ahead,
I love you.


My wonderful, fellow travelers, if it ever be,
that you wish to connect to me,
just sit quietly, and open your hearts,
you'll find me, though my body departs……


In the Sanyasin tradition, one never says good bye,
one says…



Om Namo Narayanam


Sarve shaam Svasthir Bhavatu

Sarve shaam Purnam Bhavatu
Sarve shaam Mangalam Bhavatu


Sarve Bhavantu Sukhinah
Sarve Santu Niraa mayaah
Sarve Bhadraani Pashyantu

Auspiciousness be unto all;
peace be unto all;
fulfillment be unto all;
prosperity be unto all.


May all be happy;
May all be free from disabilities;
May all look to the good of others;
May none suffer from sorrow.


Om Peace, Peace, Peace
