The Story of my Dear Laxmi Murti
I have seen allot over the last couple of years with Vibhutu materialisation on pictures. Murthis being materialised from nothing for fellow devotees and even a pendant for my little boy. I have a picture of Jesus in my Temple that has Vibhutu materialised on that is very old in nature a couple of years.
However with all of this and actually being close to a few of the above stories I have never myself received anything. My heart has had a desire though for a Murthi of my Ishta Dev whom I worship with devotion as she has been with me over many lifetimes. The moment I found out whom my Ishta Dev was, my heart found an instant connection with her and over the course of the next couple of years I have prayed to her.
In October 2011, I was in Germany for Navaratri to celebrate 9 days of prayers to the Divine Mother. One night I was chatting to Swami and I asked Him the following: "My Dearest Swami please could you ask Divine Mother for a Murthi of my Ishta Dev so I could worship her with more Devotion." Swami looked at me and said nothing, so I left it at that.
The following morning I was in the tent preparing a few things for the evening prayers when someone came to me and said Swami wants to see you. I left what I was doing to go and see what Swami wanted from me. Upon finding Swami in His personal room I quietly entered and said yes Swami. Swami looked at me and said ask me again what you asked me last night ask Divine Mother now she is listening. So I repeated my request with a folded head in a slightly softer tone.
Swami answered the following, I shall not give you a Murthi of your Ishta Dev I shall give you the aspect of Divine Mother that resides in My heart. He closed His eyes and put His hand on His chest, I was not sure what was to come next so I just sat and waited and the next moment Swami pulled a Murthi of Laxmi directly from His heart centre and handed her to me. He then said the following "if you look after Her with devotion She will grant you more than your Ishta Dev will be able to." "But be warned that She can be very strict if you don't look after her."
So since that day I have had her on my alter and have loved and adored her as She is beautiful. She now sits on a Sri Yantra and at the feet of a my Laxmi Narayanaya Murthis. Jai Ma

The Story of my Dear Laxmi Murti

So what is the Hiranyagharba Lingam:
Well, according to the Vedas the Hiranyagharba is the primordial being, the primeval seed from which Brahma was born. According to Manu, Hiranyagharba was Brahma, the first male, formed by the indiscernible First Cause in a golden egg resplendent as the sun. Having continued one year in the egg, Brahma then divided it into two parts by his mere thought and with these two shells he formed the heavens and the earth and in the middle he placed the sky, the eight regions and the eternal abode of the waters."
"Brahma is depicted as growing out of the navel lotus of Narayana and is a metaphor for all of creation. Brahma is a name for the principle which creates all of the manifest realms. In the Vedas the term "Brahma" does not appear. It is a word that stems from the Sanskrit word "Brih" which means "to grow" or "to expand." In this way Brahma has become synonymous with Hiranyagharba, "The golden egg of creation."
Some of the things that Vishwananda shared with usregarding the lingam go beyond human understanding. The golden egg of creation simply cannot be completely understood. But Swamiji did remark that "the lingam does not appear just like that without any purpose. Its presence gives the world a greater balance. Seen from God's perspective, this 'interference' is only minimal (God doesn't greatly interfere with his own creation), but for the world it does matter."
The golden lingam is said to have great healing powers. Even just a picture of the golden lingam can bring about a transformation within. But for the most part, the Hiranyagharba lingam goes beyond explanation and understanding.
At first I was very sceptical about her blog and the book which she wrote with Babaji. There a number of people online who claim to be in contact with Babaji, being the ever sceptical person that I am I went in with the thought of oh please. However after reading what she had written and how she had written I was immediately changed and realised that She, Utpalavati is actually channelling Babaji. The style which Babaji had come through to me and I had dictated what He was saying to me was identical with the book and blog.
Never mind that but you can really feel Babaji’s energy running through the whole thing. Sometimes I just can’t believe that we have such an opportunity to actually get this close to Babaji. How blessed are we.
In the blog and book Babaji is really saying to everyone Atma Kriya has been given by Me for you to become a Jivan Mukthi a God realised person in this life. Wow do we realise what that means. It means that Babaji is really collecting all His children and bringing them home.
As a devotee of Babaji this makes me very very excited. In all honestly it must be really hard for Utpalavati to remain neutral without ego. But she is doing it with flying colours and when you read the blog and book, you can feel that her only purpose is to be the channel for Babaji.
Big up Utpalavati, you made my year with the book and blog and bringing me just that closer to Babaji.
Below are the links to these blogs enjoy:
Firstly I asked Babaji about Swami Vishwananda and said to Him there is a lot of controversy surrounding him at the moment my Lord is Swami Vishwananda still with you and was Swami Vishwananda ever with you. Please guide me and help me to understand this. Babaji answered “know this my dear child He (Swami Vishwananda) is always close to me and always with me”. He went on further to say “know that the teachings are pure” referring to Swami Vishwananda and Atma Kriya.
I also asked him about all the people on the net that claim to be doing his (Babaji's) work and he said “know that even if the message is not guided by me those who follow it seek me and find me they will”.
Babaji’s message and guidance is simple, it is one of love pure unconditional love that is free of judgement. It is free off judgement so that you yourself may be free.
If you have any wonderful stories to share of you and Babaji write them down with love. Let his love shine through your heart as you free yourself from all else except unconditional love and remember who you are.
Any one who attends a Darshan around the world with Sri Swami Vishwananda always has the same comment, how much love there is in His presence.
So please write your beautiful comments down for all to share in.
On the morning of one of the courses I was about to start when Sri Sri Sri Mahavatar Kriya Babaji came through with a strong message. Funny enough the message actually fits in here so I will write it down for all to see.
How many of you sacrifice you spiritual development, growth and upliftment for material actions and gain. People strive and say they long to be free from all down here. You strive for ‘God realisation’ and become disheartened when you struggle to remember who you are. You say that you have done this course or that course but are still falling short of that ‘elusive’ God realisation. You become more disheartened and out of sync with your heart. But I tell you this when you place material benefit before spiritual benefit you will always fall short. You will always struggle and get frustrated.
If you put me (Babaji) first I will love you and be with you guiding you to this upliftment and God realisation. I have given Atma Kriya to the world so that you may strive towards me with as little hindrance as possible, I have made the practice as compact as possible for you without just handing over God realisation. But you must want it, desire it and strive towards it with love and unwavering determination.
This is my message to you my beloved children, know that this Shakti initiation is me and is similar to keeping a car clean the more you polish and wash the car the more the beauty and radiance can shine. So is the Atma Kriya designed the more you practice the more Shakti (me) will shine in you. It is up to you to polish and shine your soul with the Atma Kriya practice.
Remember I am always with you dear ones
