Babaji: The Mystic of the Kumbh Mela

The origin of the Kumbh is very old and dates back to the time when Kalasha (pot of nectar of immortality) was recovered during the churning of the primordial sea, for which a tense war between Devtas (gods) and Asuras (demons) ensued. To prevent the Amrita Kalasha being forcibly taken into possession by Asuras, who were more powerful than Devtas at that time, its safety was entrusted to the Devtas. The Devtas ran away with the Amrita Kalasha to hide it from the Asuras. Learning the conspiracy of Devtas, the Asuras turned ferocious and chased the  Devtas running with Amrita Kalasha. The chase lasted twelve days and nights during which the Devtas and Asuras went around the earth. During this chase, Devtas put Amrita Kalasha at four places in India namely Haridwar (Uttar Pradesh), Prayag (Uttar Pradesh), Ujjain (Madhya Pradesh) and Nasik (Maharashtra).

 

To commemorate this holy event of the Amrita Kalash being put at four places, the Kumbh Mela is celebrated every twelve years. According to other Puranic legends, actual fights took place between Devtas and asuras resulting in the Amrita Kalash being knocked, out of which Amrita (Nectar) fell down at the above four places.

 

Planetary Position

Kumbh Mela takes place during an auspicious planetary position. During this time of the year, Jupiter enters into the zodiac sign 'aquarius' and Sun enters into the zodiac sign 'aries'.  Millions of visitors join this remarkable event to purify their inner self and take a bath to get rid of their sins. A holy dip in the river is considered to wash away all your past sins. It is believed that whoever is taking this bath with complete trust and devotion, it can awaken your inner consciousness which leads you towards enlightenment. During this immense happening, you will be in the unique position to meet all the great yogis, sadhus and ascetics who have dedicated their lives to serving the Almighty. In this enormous gathering, because of the presence of all these Great enlightened Beings, their holy blessings will be transmitted to all the visitors and pilgrims. Numerous Darshans (sights of Masters) and Satsangs (gathering of company) will be held and benifited towards your complete Being.

 

The greatest feature of this Mela is the presence of the furious, spiritual warrior and powerful Naga Sadhus. Smeared and covered in ashes all over their body they dedicate their lives to Humanity for protecting the true spiritual heritage of India for centuries long.

The Spiritual Leader of these fearful, well respected and enlightened Sadhus is

His Holiness 1008 Shri Shri Soham Baba.

His Holiness is the Mahamandaleshwara of the Juna Akhara, the leading House of the Naga Sadhus of India.


...and again and again he leaves of the Mango Tree this legendary Story, to East and West...

“.....once..on a moonless night, the Forces of Good and the Darkness of Evil started to fight with each other in the form of Divinity and Demons. Twelve days took the battle. They fought about the pot Kalasha, filled with the Nectar of Immortality. Once the Powers of Good regained the pot of nectar, high in Heaven on the golden clouds of Eternity, four drops were spilled. While pulling the pot Kalasha, filled with the Amrita Nectar, out of the hands of the immense temptation of the selfish and destructive influence of the demonic side of life itself, four drops of Nectar started to fall down in the direction of the Earth. Those four drops fell in the lap of our beloved Mother India…

...they fell at four places, namely Haridwar (Uttar Pradesh), Prayag (Uttar Pradesh), Ujjain (Madhya Pradesh) and Nasik (Maharashtra). According to ancient Knowledge, every three years,  the planetary positioning of the dance of the planets surrounding our Earth, returns to the background of that static consciousness of the stars of our Galaxy. Remembering in their Eternal Whispering this moment of Truth:  The Nectar of Immortality fell among us, on the lap of Mother Earth. It was the beginning of Spiritual Life.  The Kumbh Mela always has been a celebration, that these precious drops, containing the knowledge of true Spirituality and Eternity, are still among us. Amrita Kalasha is alive, is hidden in our own Heart Center, the Flame which the Almighty has hidden in our Soul to enlighten in the Fire of Eternity itself. It is shining with a great Light in true spiritual knowledge in the hearts of the Saints and Sadhus, the Masters, the Mystics and is secretly hidden in the hearts of all the human beings of our world. We can discover that Light, that Flame, that Divinity within. It sings its Eternal Song in the plants, the animals, the snow white mountains and the endless oceans of our planet. In twelve years one can make a pilgrimage to each of the four places in India, where the four drops of nectar touched the ground and are connected to that water which streams under and above that ground. In Haridwar it is the Holy river Ganges, on a special place which gained mystical Power: Har ki pauri...

...the Juna Akhara, the most powerful and ancient guardians of the true spiritual heritage of India, the leading house of the Naga Sadhus and protectors of Mysticism and Eastern Philosophy, has always had the first right to take the first Royal Bath (Shahi Snan) on a certain time and place during the Kumbh Mela. After twelve times twelve years, after 144 years, Purna Kumbh Mela is taking place....

...His Holiness 1008 Shri Shri Soham Baba, Mahamandaleshwara of the Juna Akhara, is leading the first Royal Bath at Maha Shivratri on Friday 12 February 2010 in Haridwar,  India, a Bath in pure Consciousness. A Royal Bath with a true Guru, whose words has shown us a new path to Self-Realisation:

“I pray to the Almighty: “I care neither for my bondage, nor for my liberation. Place me in Hell or in the Heaven as it pleases You, but before this, grant me another thousand incarnations to be born again and again among the millions of hearts, to serve the suffering mankind – the “God” that I worship, the “God” I believe in...”
