About Baba&i's Sa#red (or vdhoot Baba Shivanand ji is a renowned Self%9ealied "aster belonging to the vdhoot lineage of #imalayan Siddhas. Baba ji had the good fortune of receiving direct spiritual initiation in Sha!ti Sadhna, the meditation on the Supreme $oddess at a tender age of eight through spiritual initiation by an immensely radiant #imalayan Saint [email protected]
Swami Gagannath ji. The angelic #imalayan Saint was himself an ardent practitioner of the series of meditations centred around the goddess, !nown as Sha!ti Sadhna. The incident of rejuvenation of a nearly%dead person through healing by the #imalayan Yogi, left a profound impact on Baba ji. The initiation into Sha!ti Sadhna proved to be a landmar! event in Baba jiHs life. 1t lit the spar! of spiritual dedication in Baba ji, to the e/tent that he used to sit for hours together in deep contemplation on
the $oddess, at times losing trac! of time in the deep state of meditative trance. Slowly but surely, Baba jiHs sense of perception grew subtler and he e/perienced himself in a completely new and unique way. Then came the phase where Baba ji embar!ed on the special pilgrimage to all the sacred ones of the $oddess, !nown as the FSha!tipeethH. 0utting in hours of meditation at every spot, Baba ji finally attained Self%realiation or wa!ening at the holy shrine of T#6 $oddess +aina Devi who blessed her pious son. 0roceeding in his divine journey, Baba ji, through his contemplation on the $oddess, gradually placated all her Ten forms !nown as the 25 "aha ?idyas. n ardent see!er as also a persevering practitioner of Sha!ti sadhna, he raised his consciousness to become 6nlightened $uru #is #oliness vdhoot Baba Shivanand ji. The wa!ened "aster, by meditating on the $oddess, was finally blessed with infinite healing powers, boons and cosmic energy. 1t was a matter of time that those around him discovered the miraculous healing powers which he had come to possess when their chronic diseases, decade old feuds and poverty perished through his healing and the grace of the Divine "other. #aving benefited to an indescribable e/tent from Sha!ti sadhna, Baba ji resolved to spread this wisdom to man!ind so every human could also e/perience a happy and holistic life. nd Durga Saptashati Beejmantratma! sadhna was the best divine tool to achieve this. This spiritual practice comprised of certain celestial sounds called Beej "antras which were derived out of persistent meditation by the mystic saints of the #imalayas who wrote them on leaves and hid them for !eeping them from falling in wrong hands. These Beej "antras were taught only to a select few of the worthiest disciples. Slowly this legacy of passing on of the wisdom of Beej "antras faded. 1n search of the script leaves of these sacred syllables and the process of their activation, Baba ji travelled miles from the #imalayan caves in the +orth to the sacred spots in the South of 1ndia. fter a #erculean effort and divine grace, Baba ji got hold of the leaves. But it too! years of deep meditation to unloc! the coded Beej "antras. ith 455 hymns and 23 chapters, Durga Saptashati is the most powerful meditation in the spiritual practices dedicated to the goddess. The power of Durga Saptashati is subtly present in its Beej "antras or divine syllables just as curd in the mil!. The power of the divine syllables can be churned out only with the grace of the $uru, which is also required to tolerate the shower of high energy on the practitioner. The Beej "antras of Durga Saptashati are chanted aloud and emit strong vibrations which ma!e for a powerful healing energy field around a person, soothing his body, mind and soul as als o the sophisticated energy centres in the subtle bodies. The accumulated psychic impressions and pent up emotions which are released upon the loud chanting result in absolute peace, inner happiness and send an energetic vibe all through the body. The list of benefits imparted by Durga Saptashati is long and are enlisted in the twelfth chapter of the Saptashati boo!s locally available in the mar!et. #owever, the Durga Saptashati Beej "antratma! sadhna goes a level higher in that it is constituted by activated seeds of divine syllables C the Beej "antras which instantaneously invo!e the power of the $oddesses and relieve every !ind of suffering. 1t is Baba jiHs earnest and heartfelt desire that this powerful and immensely beneficial spiritual practice of Sha!ti Sadhna reaches every home. 1n the earlier times, this nectar of divine wisdom was far fetched for most. Baba ji himself received this grace after so decades of effort. But it is the good fortune of the modern society that Baba ji is ma!ing it available universally in the greatest welfare of man!ind. nd whatHs more special is that the wisdom of Durga Saptashati is being imparted by the supreme devotee and the most ardent practitioner of the meditation C Baba ji himself through his celestial voice and power of intention.
