Commemorating Beparwah Shah Mastana Ji Maharaj on His 126th Incarnation Day ‘Anami-e-Sai’ Diwas
Mahak Aa Rahi Hai, Fizan Bhi Gaa Rahi Hai..
Nache Dharti, Naache Ambar, Rabbi Jot Pargata Rahi Hai..
(The fragrance of spirituality is wafting, the environs are singing the songs of God, the heavens, the skies and the earth dance in celebration, as the divine light incarnates.)
Hordes dancing in joy, their faces radiating happiness, crowds immersed in selfless love for God, dancing without a pause, all that goes beyond of the worldly pleasures. This is a common scene for Dera Sacha Sauda followers, when ocean of humanity gathers to celebrate the incarnation of the Epochal Saint Beparwah Shah Mastana Ji Maharaj on ‘Anami-e-Sai Diwas’, A day when the entire humanity comes together to thank the God for this supreme benevolence.
This is something unimaginable for those who are drenched in the materialistic spheres of life, but for when true lovers of the God celebrate the incarnation day of their beloved Master, the seven realms dance in sync with them, it seems. And why shouldn’t they celebrate it. It was the coming of a Saint who brought the ocean of divine grace upon this planet.
The True Master or Satguru incarnates to show people the right path, the path of self realization, the path to quitting drugs, alcohol and immorality, the path to social reform and humanitarianism. A True Master never seeks money to teach meditation or for God realization.
All those, whom we worship today, incarnated on this earth in human embodiment to shower the divine grace and to salvage the caged souls. It is the fragrance of their thoughts and nobility of their deeds that has inscribed their names in history.
Beparwah Shah Mastana Ji never called himself anything beyond a humble fakir and a teacher of free meditation, and transformed the lives of millions by founding Dera Sacha Sauda. He enlightened the path to ‘Anami-The Supreme Abode’, thus, we celebrate his incarnation day as ‘Anami-e-Sai Diwas’.
True Saints Incarnate to liberate the caged souls
A soul reincarnates again and again, until it becomes perfect to unite its creator. The body is a prison and the soul is a prisoner. Since time immemorial, souls detached from the supreme abode are wandering helpless. Souls cry to get liberation from this endless loop of births and deaths.
To be born human is considered a great privilege because unlike other creatures, a human can walk the path of Dharma and become liberated from the cycle of rebirth. But for that, he must know the right path to walk. History has witnessed many such epoch-making events, when the Saints and Messengers marched this planet to claim the God’s souls. Shah Mastana Ji is one such Saint who enlightened the right path and initiated a university of true spirituality where no fee would be charged for teaching God’s words or the ultimate meditation for God realization.
Bhool Gaye Ho Tum Hamein, Hum Na Tumhe Bhulayenge..
Chahe Kuch Bhi Karein Yatan, Vapis Tumhe Le Jayenge…
According to this couplet written by His Holiness Param Pita Shah Satnam Singh Ji Maharaj, a man might forget the benevolence of the almighty but he will never forget him. Whatever efforts does it take to bring him back, he certainly does.
That’s why he sends his Messengers to show them the right path. A True Master, Peer, Fakir prays for the welfare of the whole universe and peace of the whole of the creatures. He finds happiness if his wards feel happy. Therefore, the True Saints patronize selfless humanitarian endeavors for the upliftment of the society. Their sole motive is to reform the society, radiating love among them, and to connect the creatures with the God’s name – Gurumantra.
One of the highest blessings that you can receive from God while living on earth is meeting a True Spiritual Master. When souls detached from the God cry to get rid of the Karmic cycle, almighty sends his Messengers to liberate these souls from the cycle of rebirth.
Saints are great benefactors. Their Philanthropy is unparalleled. In the worldly affairs, if somebody helps someone he keeps boasting of his charity throughout his lifetime. This is a big difference between the Saints and man.
Let us assume that a man offers good food, good clothes, good cold drinks to a prisoner, it might make him happy for a while but it doesn’t free him. While another man comes forward to liberate him from the jail. Whose benevolence is higher?
The True Masters do the same, they impart the true wisdom and enlighten the path of God that liberates the souls from this materialistic world and help them attain salvation. Such are the deeds of benevolence of the True Masters towards the whole world and they keep on doing such charity work, no matter what.
But this is the duty of human being to be thankful towards his Satguru who has granted life to him, no gift can be bigger than this. All scriptures say equivocally that one should always remember his Guru, and should have a firm belief in him rising above from all the worldly desires. If one does it without asking for any favor, the Satguru grants countless bounties in his bag, without being asked for.
Jab Sant Jagat Mein Aate Hain, Woh Apna Bhed Chhupate Hain..
Nijghar Ki Baat Batate Hain, Vishvas Kare Le Jate Hain…
(When True Master marches on the earth to liberate the caged souls from the cycles of rebirths, He incarnates in human embodiments, lives amongst human like them, and enlightens the path to supreme abode; only those who believe attain salvation.)
Divine Life of Shah Mastana Ji at a Glance:
Beparwah Shah Mastana Ji was born on Kartik Poornima in 1891 in village Kotra, tehsil Gandhey, district Kalait of Balochistan, in the family of Respected Sh. Pillamal and Mata Tulsa Bai Ji. He belonged to a Kshatriya family. Earlier, He was named as Shri Khemamal Ji. It was Huzoor Baba Sawan Singh, who christened Him with the name of ‘Shah Mastana Ji’.
From early childhood, Shah Mastana Ji had a great inclination towards spirituality; that is why at the young age of 13-14 Years he left home in the search for a True Master. In his search Mastana Ji met almost every famous saint of northern India but couldn’t find anyone perfect to be a Master.
After searching for almost nine years Mastana Ji met His Holiness Huzoor Baba Sawan Singh Ji Maharaj and got initiated by Him. As luck would have it, his thirst for the Divine Lord was fulfilled and what followed next was the development of true faith in His Satguru.
As His inner self was clean and His love for Baba Sawan Singh Ji was selfless, His honest and profound devotion towards his Satguru earned Him a special place in the vision of Baba Sawan Singh Ji. Beparwah Shah Mastana Ji used to dance very often in love for His Satguru, singing the songs of praise for Baba Sawan Singh Ji and addressing His Satguru with a unique salutation, “Dhan Dhan Sai Sawan Shah Ji Nirankar, Tera Hi Aasra.”
The jealous abound even around perfect Saints. Some found this an opportunity to complain about Shah Mastana Ji to Sawan Shah Ji, that He was distorting the basic salutation of Beas Ashram. Baba Sawan Singh Ji immediately asked for Maharaj Mastana Ji to be summoned, much to the delights of louts.
Baba Sawan Singh Ji asked, “Don’t do this, why are you eulogising me in your salutation.” Shah Mastana Ji answered in all humility, “Sai Ji, I am forever in your loving shade, for me you are the manifestation of the omnipresent unseen Almighty, you are the omniscient God. I get intoxicated by your love, therefore I start dancing.” Baba Sawan Singh Ji spoke in an affectionate voice and said, “Still, you must change your salutation to Dhan Dhan Satguru Tera Hi Aasra. You have to go to the lands of Bagar and preach God’s words and spread God’s name.”
Initially Beparwah Ji extremely reluctant and submitted, “This is very difficult. I do not wish to leave you. I will go only if this is your commandment.” The amazing boon of Shah Mastana Ji’s meditation granting deliverance from transmigration or salvation within this lifetime was granted by Baba Sawan Singh Ji at that time. And the Holy Slogan Dhan Dhan Satguru Tera Hi Aasra was also endorsed by Baba Sawan Singh Ji saying that if the Holy Slogan was spoken with devotion, it would have power in both worlds.
Shah Mastana Ji achieved something impossible in this Kaliyuga, by asking Maharaj Sawan Singh Ji, for bestowing the ultimate gifts. “Those initiated by you, Shah Mastana, dwell with one foot on this planet and another foot in divinity’s ultimate abode-the realm of Sachkhand,” His Holiness Sawan Singh Ji Maharaj had said.
“Those initiated by you, if they remain true to the cardinal principles, do a little meditation and humanitarian service, shall never be short of anything,” the divine Master had ordained. And this was how the Dera Sacha Sauda was founded in Sirsa in 1948.
Shah Mastana Ji taught the method of meditation (Naam-Shabd, Guru-Mantra) to thousands of people over a period of twelve years. After performing His assigned duties, Shah Mastana Ji Maharaj handed over his reign to His successor Shah Satnam Singh Ji Maharaj on February 28, 1960. And He Himself left for his eternal abode on April 18, 1960.
Shah Mastana Ji in his last Satsang (spiritual discourse) of January 1960 had repeatedly prophesied, “Exactly after seven years, I will come again in the form of the third body (the Third Master)” Exactly after 7 years in 1967, on 15th August, He re-incarnated as Third Master, Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan. Since then, the following of Dera Sacha Sauda and its preachings has grown manifolds.
From a broad humanitarian perspective no Saint, Seer, King or social worker in the history of mankind has undertaken the campaigns that Dera Sacha Sauda has undertaken in guidance of Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan.
Badaldi Nahi May Haqiqi, Paimana Badalda Rehnda, Surahi Badaldi Rehndi….
The nectar of Godly love and divinity never changes its taste, just the glass and the container changes.
5 Brilliant Ways to Improve Your English Speaking Skills
When it comes to learning something new, people often fall for coaching and online tutorials. If you want to improve spoken English skills and learn basic business English conversations, spoken English tutorials available on YouTube can help you initially, but listening and watching isn’t enough to improve your communication.
If you wish to speak English fluently you will have to practice it daily in real life conversations. The only way you can learn a new language is when you start speaking it. English is a language of business and professional communication in India. Many deserving candidates lose out on job opportunities because of their vernacular accent. When it comes to draft a killer e-mail or to submit the assignments in college, you can easily buy essay from online essay-writing portals, but when it comes to deliver a speech or when you have to impress your boss-to-be in an interview, you have to be fluent at spoken English.
How to Improve Spoken English skills in a month
Forget the fear: The main problem with most people who find it difficult to speak English fluently is that they lack confidence and they have a fear that they might commit mistake and will be laughed at. But unless you start practicing English communication how would you know where you are going wrong and where you need to improve?
We all make mistakes and the only way to learn is to practice and have others correct us. Start with what you know and soon you will be learning new things you never knew. Unless you start speaking a language you can never learn it.
Think in English: When talking in the English language, many of us tend to think in our native language and then translate it in mind, and make a check again while speaking out. If you think in Hindi and try speaking it after translating it in English, the process takes much time and you cannot communicate with anyone if you take too much time uttering your words.
Improve your vocabulary and word power: Improve your vocabulary to improve your communication. Set a goal to learn 5 new words everyday, then after 6 months, 150 new words will be added to your vocabulary. Any good orator uses 2500-3000 words in his common conversations, hence reaching this goal won’t take much time if you set a goal to learn something new every day.
Google avails a brilliant way to search the meaning of new words. Just type ‘define’ before the word, and it will give an instant reply suggesting its synonyms and an example on how to use it in a sentence. Apart from learning new words, also learn new phrases and slang famous on the internet like the meaning of swag, selfie, bae.
Websites like Thesaurus and Urban Dictionary can help you learning new phrases and slang. For example, if you search “meaning of Brutally Honest” then head to Urban Dictionary and find its meaning and how it is used in popular English. Another thing you need to remember is, sense of the slang doesn’t mean the same in your native language.
For example, if you use Brutally Honest in English, it simply means a candid opinion without sugar-coated words, but if you find its meaning in Hindi or Punjabi it will result something weird. So, when you search for the meaning of Brutally Honest, don’t forget to search Brutally Honest in Hindi too, same with other words and slang.
Just like this example, synonyms are also tricky. “Sink” is synonymous with “fall” but you cannot use sink to replace fall – Ashima was skating on the ice rink and then she sank in ice – makes no sense. Make a list of such new words as and when possible and try to use these words when you are communicating in English. This helps you to make your language grow rich.
Use the digital media to learn spoken English: Read English books, newspapers and magazines. If you are a movie buff, watch Hollywood movies with subtitles, old idea.. huh? Let’s add a twist and make it interesting. Watch a Bollywood Movie with English subtitles. Cool!!
The more you hear the more exposure you get to new words to add on to your vocabulary and you get more familiar with the pronunciation and ‘ intonation of different words.
Practice with other English learners: Find a friend who is also interested in improving spoken English so that you can practice together, correct each other and learn together. There are many spoken English tools available online too. Another thing you can do is to Record your own voice and listen to it. This will help you gain confidence and work on your mistakes.
By inculcating certain practices in your daily life, you will get closer to sound like a native English speaker and equip yourself with a global accent and you will not be speaking American or British English, but correct English.

How right sitting posture reduces Back Pain – The Healing Begins
Sitting in a wrong posture on an office chair for prolonged intervals of time can undoubtedly trigger back pain or worsen an existing problem related to back and spine. The primary reason behind this is that sitting in a wrong posture, in an office chair increases stress within the back, shoulders, arms, and legs, and particularly, can add massive strain to the back muscular tissues and spinal discs.
A lot of people suffering with severe backache resort on painkillers and physiotherapy rather than focusing on how to improve sitting posture in office chair!
A correct sitting posture on computer or any desk can reduce the back pain minimizing the undue strain over back and spine.
How correct sitting posture reduces Back Pain
When you sit in an office chair for a long interval of time, the common tendency for most of the people is to stoop over or droop down in the chair, and this kind of posture can overstretch the spinal ligaments causing needless strain on the discs, muscular tissues and surrounding structures in the spine.
Over time, wrong sitting posture in the chair can damage spinal structures and contribute to or exacerbate a backache.
An ergonomic office chair is a tool that, when used in a right way, can help one maximize support to back and maintain correct sitting posture while working on a computer.
The first step in setting up an office chair is to ascertain the required height of the individual’s desk or computer or workstation. This choice is determined primarily by the type of work to be done and by the height of the person using the office chair.
The height of the desk or workstation itself can vary greatly and will require different positioning of the office chair, or a different type of ergonomic chair altogether.
Once the workstation has been situated, then the user can adjust the office chair according to his or her physical proportions.
Here are some important tips to help make sure that the office chair and workstation are as comfortable as possible and will cause the least amount of stress to the spine:
- Elbow measure: First, begin by sitting comfortably as close as possible to your workstation so that your upper arms are parallel to your spine. Rest your hands on your work surface (e.g. Desktop, computer keyboard) If your elbows are not at 90-degree angle, adjust your office chair height either up or down.
- Thigh measure: Check that you easily slide your fingers under your thigh at leading edge of the office chair. If it is too tight, you need to prop your feet up with an adjustable footrest. If you are extraordinarily tall and there is more than a finger width between your thigh and the chair, you need to raise the desk or work surface so that you can raise the height of your office chair.
- Calf measure: With your bottom pushed against the chair back, try to pass your clenched fist between the back of your calf and the front of your office chair. If you can’t do that easily, then the office chair is too deep. You will need to adjust the backrest forward, insert a low back support (such as a lumbar support cushion, a pillow or rolled up towel), or get a new office chair.
- Low Back support: Your bottom should be pressed against the back of your chair, and there should be a cushion that causes your lower back to arch slightly so that you don’t slump forward or slouch down in the chair is as you tire over time. This low back support in the office chair is essential to minimize the load on your back. Never slump or slouch forward in the office chair, as that places extra stress on structures in the low back, and in particular, on the lumbar discs.
- Resting eye level: Close your eyes while sitting comfortably with your head facing forward. Slowly open your eyes. Your gaze should be aimed at center of your computer screen. If your computer screen is higher or lower than your gaze, you need to either raise or lower it to reduce strain on the upper spine.
- Armrest: Adjust the armrest of the office chair so that it just slightly lifts your arms at the shoulders. Use of an armrest on your office chair is important to take some of the strain off your upper spine and shoulders, and it should make you less likely to slouch forward in your chair.
Rather than resorting on painkillers and physiotherapy improve your sitting posture in office chair, a correct sitting posture can heal your back pain.
7 Brutally Honest Demotivational Quotes That are Funny Yet Practical
Let’s be practical and face the reality. These new jogging pants aren’t going to make you fit and fine unless you break the machines in gym. Here we have some Brutally Honest demotivational quotes from probably the most pessimistic souls among us.
Those that clearly notice and dare to admit that glass is half-empty might be labeled as pessimist or ‘a man who always thinks negative’ but these brutally honest sayings can help you maintain your resolutions practical and your perspective sensible.
7 Brutally Honest Demotivational Quotes That are Funny Yet Practical
Dreams are beautiful. Everyone should dream and aspire. But does it help in running from the problems you face in your everyday life? No. Sleep.. Dream.. Wake Up.. Aspire.. and feel the life when it hits you hard in your face.
There would be many who misguide and blind you saying you are awesome, you are a genius and all that stuff. And then there are some brutally honest folks who tell you not to mess with the things that are not designed for you. Dude, they are not trying to discourage you, they are just telling you to do what you can do, for what you’ve been in this world and to do the things you are perfect at.
In race to do something ‘extraordinary’ you might be missing the skills you have mastered. Welcome scrutiny and do what you are best at!
Earning big money, fame and fans is not truly an achievement. Those who are with you for money aren’t actually worth keeping in your life. Fame that gleams in your shadow will fade like effervescence when you stop learning and earning more. Fans can find someone better than you.
So next time you brag for your achievements, ask yourself what have you done so far in your life that is irreplaceable!
Many times in your life you might feel that you need to share your pains and your darker side with someone to make the load of your emotions lighter.
Harsh, but true.. nobody cares! You will end up mocking yourself.
There are many who say – Money cannot buy happiness. Really? Have you seen anyone sad on a roller coaster ride? Have you seen someone crying while bungee jumping? Money can buy happiness. Money cannot buy love?
UAE’s vice president Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has two (confirmed) wives, media mogul Rupert Murdoch is currently with his 4th wife and Donald Trump got Melania.
Ok, there would be many things money cannot buy, but there are countless things that cannot be bought without money.
They say, if you keep trying and do not waver in what you are doing, one day you will achieve you always wanted. Well, this is sheer wastage of time.
If you are doing something that is not worth doing, you are just missing the opportunities to do something better in your life.
Do you have many complaints with what you are doing. Stop complaining and ask your real you if you could do better than this.
Close your eyes for a moment.
