Cutting Chai with Bhawana Somaaya - Day 214

Time For Freedom
22.10.2013, Mumbai

Dadi Janti of Bhrrama Kumari says now is the time for us to experience freedom even if you find that some kind of bondage is limiting your freedom. She says we experience being in bondage when we have desire. We assume it is our responsibility to provide happiness through those relationships when infact   no matter how hard we try to make others happy, they are never satisfied.  Bondage arises when we try to make others happy and they respond with sorrow.  If there is bondage, there will be sorrow when we disengage. It is because these are these are relationships based on the body and every parting is bound to bring sorrow. Our effort therefore should be to stabilize the self, have awareness that “I want to be free from any bondage in the world.”  If Dadi can be liberated from all that is negative, from all bondage to customs, systems and people, so can all of us.

The deeper we go within ourselves the more we are able to understand. Sometimes bondages prevent this journey and we need to be conscious of it. If we have faith that we are connecting with the Divine, then it will be easy to claim powers and experience true freedom says Dadi janki and the philosophy of Bhrama Kumari.
