Maharajji Reintroduces Himself to Me

Neem Karoli Baba MaharajjiBabaji resurfaced in my consciousness in 1999 when a stranger in an internet chat room asked me if I had heard of Neem Karoli Baba.  Since Babaji resurfaced in my consciousness, my life has become an endless series of Babaji stories.

The subtle presence of Babaji in my life has brought about unconceivable changes within me, and as I heal and transform within, my perceptions observations and understanding of the outside world transforms.

By Babaji's grace my mundane world is becoming divine.

I have always known of Babaji as I was born into a family where Babaji was an omniscient presence. However, in my immediate home there was little space for religion, religious rituals or sadhus and babas.

I Saw Maharajji in 2010

Neem Karoli Baba Maharajji Neeb Karori Baba MaharajjiI dreamt of Maharajji in 2006. He hit me on my back a few times in my dream and was wearing the same blanket as seen in many photos. I never knew who he was and why i had such a dream.

In 2010, This year my dad brought me to India (a gift for my 21st Birthday). I went on a piligrimage to Shirdi (Sai) Baba Mandhir in Shirdi and to Mantralayam to see Rhagavendra Swami's Brindavan. On our way we stopped at Hyderbad's Birla Mandhir where the temple was made of marble.

There I saw Maharajji. That point in time I still did not know who he was. He asked me for Singapore coins and spoke to me in Tamil once he knew i could only speak Tamil. There after he told me to say " Sri Ram Jaya Ram Jaya Jaya Ram" everyday.

Why I Don't Smoke on Maharajji's Porch

In the mid Nineties,, many of the devotees at Neem Karoli Baba Ashram in Taos, New Mexico, USA, smoked cigarettes and bidis. There were few outside areas at the ashram where smoking was not allowed. The custom has now been reversed and there are almost no areas where smoking is allowed.

As a step toward that, the ashram's Board of Directors made a new rule that the area just outside what we call "Maharajji's office", often referred to as "Maharajji's porch", was now a no smoking area.

Still, many of the local devotees refused to stop their smoking in that vicinity. I adhered to the rule for some time, but after some months began to occasionally smoke there myself.

Maharajji Let Me Touch His Feet

Neem Karolibaba ki jai,

I have deep faith in Neem Karoli Baba and I want to share some miracle of Baba in my life.

Darshan Thru Space and Time

This is a mind-blowing Maharajji moment.

I was listening to Maharajji's voice and glancing at the translation on the website, and 1/2 way down the page, I saw my casual name, Suzi, that I have used since college (1970).

Baba said on the translation: "Oh Suzi?"
