Baba Mahakal is Angry now Please mend your ways Dear Netas, Officers and Pundits


Baba Mahakal is Angry now Please mend your ways Dear Netas, Officers and Pundits 

🔥 The recent incident of Gulal Catching fire during the Puja has left many in shock, with numerous priests sustaining injuries, some severe. It's a tragic occurrence that demands reflection.

Baba Mahakal is angry, now please mend your ways dear leaders, officers and pundits.

This was the wrath of Mahakaal itself… and this cannot happen to anyone… The incident of gulal catching fire during the puja surprised everyone.

Many priests have been injured in this and many seriously... this is Sad... and Alarming too

Now that this incident has happened, the reason behind it should also be discussed…some reasons are visible and some reasons are not visible…about which people do not want to talk. Some people will feel superstition...some will laugh...but think, if Baba Mahakal, who removes the sufferings of devotees all over the world, is facing problems in his court, then it means that he is angry. Why not... Mahakal Temple has become so commercialized that common devotees have moved away from God and the rich are meeting God directly... Those who connect are priests but perhaps Baba Mahakal is also a priest. That he did not like this shopkeeping…he has given a gesture…it is a small gesture but this small gesture itself has cost the lives of many people…unnecessarily one goes astray for kilometers…neither do the elders see. Neither the disabled... Yes, if you warm the Pandit's pocket, you can reach the VIP line from the common man's line... By paying a little more, you can go to Nandi Griha and after special Dakshina, arrangements for pregnancy are also made. It is in their hands... Anyway, for them money has become God...

Mahakaal is just a medium...this is the way to connect directly with God. Leaders and administration are also equal partners in this business... who started extorting money by calling Baba Mahakal as God... and started turning common devotees away from Baba... this is the plight of those devotees who come only for darshan. . But they are abused and insulted in front of Baba…many such videos have also gone viral…

You will remember the Mahakal scam in which every leader, officer and team of pundits earned a lot of money and the former Chief Minister had to lose his chair only because of the Mahakal Ujjain scam. Supported by politicians and priests, the transformation of the temple into a commercial hub has led to genuine devotees being sidelined, while VIP treatment has been given priority to the rich. The sanctity of the pilgrimage has been tarnished by corruption and exploitation, which is evident in scandals such as the Mahakal Ujjain scam. It is disappointing to see that devotees seeking solace have to face humiliation and exploitation.

Beyond the visual, there are underlying factors that need to be discussed, however inconvenient for some. Although some people may dismiss this as superstition, it is worth wondering whether Baba Mahakal, who removes the sufferings of the devotees, is indicating his displeasure. Excessive commercialization of Mahakal Temple has distanced the common devotees from God and benefited the rich. This trend, where money usurps spirituality, would have angered the deity, resulting in tragic consequences.

This incident serves as a wake-up call. We must strive to restore the sanctity of our religious places, ensuring that they remain centers of spirituality rather than centers of commercialism. If this is not done, Baba Mahakal may have to face divine retribution. Now is the time to heed the warnings and correct our mistakes before it is too late. 

Actually, there is more crowd in Vaishno Devi temple than this... but the token system there is such that people do not have to stand in the queue for more than half an hour.. The system can be made here also but there is a danger of closing the shops. .. This is just a small hint... If you improve now then it's ok otherwise it is Baba Mahakal who will settle his scores himself...

बाबा महाकाल नाराज हैं, अब कृपया अपना रास्ता सुधारें प्रिय नेताओं, अधिकारियों और पंडितों,।

ये तो खुद महाकाल का प्रकोप था...और किसी के साथ ऐसा नहीं हो सकता....पूजा के दौरान गुलाल में आग लगने की घटना ने सभी को हैरान कर दिया.

इसमें कई पुजारी घायल हुए हैं और कई गंभीर रूप से भी.. यह दुखद है.. .

अब जब ये घटना घटी है तो इसके पीछे की वजह पर भी चर्चा होनी चाहिए...कुछ वजहें नजर आती हैं और कुछ वजहें नजर नहीं आतीं...जिनके बारे में लोग बात नहीं करना चाहते. कुछ लोगों को अंधविश्वास लगेगा...कुछ को हंसी आएगी...लेकिन सोचिए, दुनिया भर के भक्तों के कष्ट दूर करने वाले बाबा महाकाल को अगर उनके दरबार में परेशानी का सामना करना पड़ रहा है तो इसका मतलब है कि वे नाराज हैं। क्यों नहीं...महाकाल मंदिर का व्यावसायीकरण इतना हो गया है कि आम भक्त भगवान से दूर हो गए हैं और पैसे वाले सीधे भगवान से मिल रहे हैं...जो जोड़ते हैं वो तो पुजारी हैं लेकिन शायद बाबा महाकाल भी पुजारी हैं. कि उन्हें ये दुकानदारी पसंद नहीं आई..उन्होंने एक इशारा किया है..इशारा छोटा है लेकिन इस छोटे से इशारे में ही कई लोगों की जान पर बन आई है...बेवजह किलोमीटर का रास्ता भटक जाता है..न बुजुर्ग देखते हैं न दिव्यांग... हां, अगर आप पंडित की जेब गर्म कर लें तो आम आदमी की लाइन से वीआईपी लाइन तक पहुंच सकते हैं...थोड़ा अधिक भुगतान करके आप नंदी गृह तक जा सकते हैं और विशेष दक्षिणा के बाद गर्भधारण की व्यवस्था भी उन्हीं के हाथ में है...वैसे भी, उनके लिए पैसा ही भगवान बन गया है...

महाकाल तो एक माध्यम है...यही तो भगवान से सीधे जुड़ने का रास्ता है। इस धंधे में नेता, प्रशासन भी बराबर के भागीदार हैं... जो बाबा महाकाल को भगवान बताकर धन उगाही करने लगे.. और आम भक्तों को बाबा से विमुख करने लगे.. ये उन भक्तों की व्यथा है जो सिर्फ दर्शन के लिए आते हैं. लेकिन बाबा के सामने ही उन्हें गालियां और बेइज्जती की जाती है...ऐसे कई वीडियो भी वायरल हो चुके हैं...

आपको महाकाल घोटाला याद होगा जिसमें हर नेता, अधिकारी और पंडितों की टीम ने खूब पैसा कमाया और पूर्व मुख्यमंत्री को अपनी कुर्सी सिर्फ महाकाल उज्जैन घोटाले के कारण गंवानी पड़ी। राजनेताओं और पुजारियों द्वारा समर्थित, मंदिर को एक व्यवसायिक केंद्र में बदलने से वास्तविक भक्तों को दरकिनार कर दिया गया है, जबकि अमीर लोगों के लिए वीआईपी उपचार को प्राथमिकता दी गई है। तीर्थयात्रा की पवित्रता भ्रष्टाचार और शोषण से धूमिल हो गई है, जो कि महाकाल उज्जैन घोटाले जैसे घोटालों में स्पष्ट है। यह देखना निराशाजनक है कि सांत्वना चाहने वाले भक्तों को अपमान और शोषण का सामना करना पड़ता है। 

दृश्य से परे, ऐसे अंतर्निहित कारक हैं जिन पर चर्चा की आवश्यकता है, हालांकि कुछ के लिए यह असुविधाजनक है। हालांकि कुछ लोग इसे अंधविश्वास कहकर खारिज कर सकते हैं, लेकिन यह सोचने वाली बात है कि क्या भक्तों के कष्टों को दूर करने वाले बाबा महाकाल अपनी नाराजगी का संकेत दे रहे हैं। महाकाल मंदिर के अत्यधिक व्यावसायीकरण ने आम भक्तों को भगवान से दूर कर दिया है और धनवानों को फायदा पहुंचाया है। यह प्रवृत्ति, जहां पैसा आध्यात्मिकता को हड़प लेता है, ने देवता को नाराज कर दिया होगा, जिसके परिणामस्वरूप दुखद परिणाम होंगे।

Empowerment Essentials- A Series on Self-Confidence

 Empowerment Essentials- A Series on Self-Confidence

Self-confidence, often regarded as the cornerstone of personal development and success, is a trait that permeates every aspect of our lives. It shapes our beliefs, actions, and ultimately, our destinies. From pursuing ambitious goals to navigating daily challenges with resilience, self-confidence serves as the driving force behind our endeavors. In this article, we delve into the multifaceted nature of self-confidence, exploring its significance, its sources, and strategies for its cultivation.

Understanding Self-Confidence:

At its core, self-confidence is the belief in one's own abilities, worth, and potential. It manifests as an inner assurance that empowers individuals to confront challenges, take risks, and persist in the face of setbacks. Unlike arrogance, which stems from an inflated ego and often masks insecurities, genuine self-confidence is grounded in self-awareness, competence, and a healthy sense of self-esteem.

The Significance of Self-Confidence:

Self-confidence plays a pivotal role in various aspects of life, influencing both personal and professional spheres. In the realm of career advancement, individuals with high levels of self-confidence are more likely to seize opportunities, assert their ideas, and command respect from colleagues and superiors. Moreover, they exhibit greater resilience in the face of rejection or failure, viewing setbacks as temporary hurdles rather than insurmountable barriers.

In interpersonal relationships, self-confidence fosters authenticity and assertiveness, enabling individuals to express their needs, set boundaries, and cultivate meaningful connections. Moreover, self-assured individuals exude charisma and magnetism, drawing others towards them and inspiring trust and admiration.

Furthermore, self-confidence is intricately linked to mental and emotional well-being. It serves as a shield against the onslaught of self-doubt, anxiety, and depression, nurturing a positive self-image and a sense of empowerment. When individuals believe in their capabilities and worth, they are more inclined to pursue their passions, embrace challenges, and lead fulfilling lives.

The Development of Self-Confidence:

While some individuals seem naturally endowed with high levels of self-confidence, it is a trait that can be nurtured and developed over time. The journey towards greater self-assurance encompasses both internal reflection and external action, requiring commitment, patience, and a willingness to confront fears and insecurities.

1. Self-Reflection:

The first step in cultivating self-confidence involves introspection and self-awareness. This entails identifying one's strengths, weaknesses, values, and aspirations. By acknowledging past achievements and recognizing areas for growth, individuals can cultivate a more realistic and balanced perception of themselves.

2. Setting Realistic Goals:

Setting achievable goals aligned with one's interests and abilities is instrumental in bolstering self-confidence. Break larger objectives into smaller, manageable tasks, and celebrate progress along the way. Each accomplishment serves as evidence of one's competence and reinforces a sense of efficacy.

3. Stepping Outside Comfort Zones:

Growth occurs outside the confines of comfort zones. Embracing new challenges, whether it be public speaking, learning a new skill, or initiating social interactions, fosters resilience and expands the boundaries of what is perceived as possible. While discomfort may initially arise, each experience serves as an opportunity for learning and personal growth.

4. Practicing Self-Compassion:

Self-compassion entails treating oneself with kindness and understanding, especially in moments of failure or adversity. Rather than succumbing to self-criticism or perfectionism, acknowledge mistakes as inherent to the learning process and extend the same empathy towards oneself as one would to a friend facing similar challenges.

5. Cultivating a Growth Mindset:

Adopting a growth mindset, as espoused by psychologist Carol Dweck, entails viewing challenges as opportunities for growth and embracing failures as stepping stones to success. By reframing setbacks as valuable learning experiences, individuals cultivate resilience and a sense of agency over their own lives.

Self-confidence is not merely a trait but a transformative force that shapes the trajectory of our lives. It empowers individuals to pursue their dreams, overcome obstacles, and embrace their fullest potential. While the journey towards greater self-assurance may be fraught with challenges, it is a journey well worth undertaking. By fostering self-awareness, setting realistic goals, embracing discomfort, practicing self-compassion, and cultivating a growth mindset, individuals can unlock the boundless reservoir of confidence that lies within them, illuminating the path towards personal fulfillment and success.

 Why Self-Confidence is Crucial for Success and Well-Being

In the intricate tapestry of human experience, self-confidence emerges as a golden thread that weaves together aspirations, achievements, and resilience. It is the bedrock upon which dreams are built, challenges are surmounted, and destinies are forged. In this comprehensive exploration, we delve into the myriad reasons why self-confidence is not merely a desirable trait but an essential catalyst for personal growth, professional success, and overall well-being.

Navigating Life's Challenges:

Life is replete with challenges, both anticipated and unforeseen, that test the mettle of individuals. From career transitions to interpersonal conflicts, each hurdle demands a resilient spirit and an unwavering belief in one's abilities. Self-confidence serves as the armor that fortifies individuals against the onslaught of adversity, imbuing them with the courage to confront obstacles head-on and emerge victorious.

1. Resilience in the Face of Adversity:

Self-confident individuals possess a reservoir of inner strength that enables them to weather life's storms with grace and resilience. Rather than succumbing to despair or resignation in the face of setbacks, they view challenges as temporary setbacks and opportunities for growth. Armed with self-assurance, they bounce back from failure with renewed determination and vigor, undeterred by the fear of stumbling along the path to success.

2. Seizing Opportunities:

Opportunities are fleeting and often disguised as challenges or uncertainties. It is those with unwavering self-confidence who dare to seize the reins of destiny and embark on transformative journeys of exploration and discovery. Whether it be pursuing a new career path, starting a business venture, or embarking on a creative endeavor, self-assured individuals embrace uncertainty as a gateway to infinite possibilities, propelled by the belief in their innate potential.

3. Assertiveness and Effective Communication:

Effective communication lies at the heart of interpersonal relationships, professional success, and leadership prowess. Self-confidence empowers individuals to articulate their thoughts, express their needs, and assert their boundaries with clarity and conviction. By cultivating assertiveness, self-assured individuals foster mutual respect, garner support for their ideas, and navigate conflicts with diplomacy and grace.

4. Nurturing Healthy Relationships:

Self-confidence is a magnet that draws others towards individuals who exude authenticity, charisma, and self-assurance. In personal relationships, it fosters mutual respect, trust, and emotional intimacy, laying the foundation for enduring bonds of companionship and support. Moreover, self-assured individuals are better equipped to set boundaries, advocate for their needs, and cultivate relationships that uplift and inspire them.

5. Pursuing Personal Fulfillment:

At its essence, self-confidence is synonymous with self-empowerment and self-actualization. It emboldens individuals to pursue their passions, embrace their unique talents, and chart a course towards personal fulfillment and meaning. Whether it be pursuing creative endeavors, embarking on adventures, or championing causes close to their hearts, self-confident individuals embrace life with gusto and verve, savoring each moment as an opportunity for growth and self-expression.

In a world fraught with uncertainty and complexity, self-confidence emerges as a beacon of hope and empowerment, guiding individuals towards their fullest potential and highest aspirations. It is the catalyst that transforms dreams into reality, obstacles into opportunities, and setbacks into stepping stones for growth. By nurturing self-confidence through self-awareness, resilience, assertiveness, and authentic self-expression, individuals unlock the boundless reservoir of courage and conviction that resides within them, paving the way for a life of purpose, passion, and fulfillment.
