Could you give me tips regarding the thoughts(feelings) that I can create in guru dham(mangarh) to obtain maximum spiritual benifit.What other seva can I get there this guru poornima?

Question Detail: as it will be my first visit to mangarh this guru poornima,I have decided to gain spiritual benefit as much as  possible.
Answer: This is a great question to ask before visiting guru dham. If you're already thinking in this way, then you are giving yourself the best chance to experience the grace of God and guru while you are in Mangarh. The most important thing to feel is that Shree Maharaj Ji is still physically there in Mangarh. There is no difference for a devotee now as compared to the time when you could actually meet Maharaj Ji (before his ascension). When you are walking around Mangarh, when you are doing sadhana, when you are eating in the dining hall, you should always feel that Shree Maharaj Ji is there with you. Then you will experience that he actually is there with you.  Doing seva while in guru dham is also an important opportunity to increase humbleness and dedication. There are two main ways that you can serve while there. One is to physically help with things like food preparation for the devotees, cleaning in the kitchen, sweeping in the sadhana hall (Bhakti Bhavan), etc. The seva coordinators in these various areas will ask for volunteers, or you can simply go directly and join in. Many people also desire to contribute financially to the charitable projects initiated by Shree Maharaj Ji. This is a beautiful way to do seva while in guru dham. Fundraising activities will be taking place while you are there, and you are welcome to participate.

Are there human beings in other brahmands other than that of the chaturmukhi brahma’s brahmand?

Question Detail: In the pravachan shyam Milan ki baat soch mann ,SMJi, while explaining the importance of human form had told “there are anant * anant jeeevatmas with same shareer in anant koti brahmand.But unlike other forms there are only 3 billion humans in anant  koti brahmand at the present time.3 billion population was the world population during that pravachan,considering this brahmand only ,of that of chaturmukhi brahma which implies that there are no human beings in other brahmand.In some other pravachans SMJi has also told that there are anant rasik saints in anant brahmand at the present time.I have a confusion that when there are rasik saints in other brahmands does it not mean that there are human beings in other brahmands too .If no ,why are the rasik saints there??
Answer: Yes, according the Vedic philosophy, there are unlimited brahmands in the universe, and the 'manav deh' (human body), which is required to find God, is available in all the brahmands.

In the pravachan 'kshana bhangur vairagya' SMJi had mentioned that" man ko hatane aur lagane ke beech mein kuch kadiya aur hein".Which are the kadis that SMJi had mentioned?

Question Detail: In the 3 hr speech SMJi ended up with the above words.I didn't understand what those kadis were.
Answer: Radhey Radhey,I can assume that Maharaj ji is referring to the conditions of the path of bhakti that have to be understood and adopted before one can successfully attach their mind to God. In brief, they are:
1) You should never ask God for any material thing. If you are asking God for material things during your devotion, it means that you are desiring the world, not desiring God. Then it means your mind is in the world, not God. You should not even ask for liberation, because that also means you are not attaching your mind to God, you are just asking for something from Him. You should only desire for His darshan and His prem, then your mind will get attached to Him.2) Instead of worshiping God as "God", adopt one of the four ways of feeling related to Him: dasya bhav (loving Him as a kind master, and you are His servant); sakhya bhav (loving Him as your friend); vatsalya bhav (loving Him as your child, and you are His mother or father); or madhurya bhav (loving Him as your beloved).3) You should be ananya to Him. This means in your heart you feel related only to Shree Krishna, you depend only on Him, and you desire only Him, not anyone under maya, including the devtas in swarg (Indra, etc.). This is exclusiveness in devotion.4) Once you have understood and adopted these points, you have to attach your mind to Shree Krishna by doing 'roop dhyan'. Roop dhyan is a style of meditation where you form an image of Shree Krishna in your mind. In other words, you meditate on His form. You can also think of His leelas. The reason roop dhyan is important is that if you are not thinking of Shree Krishna's form, it means your mind is somewhere in the world - then it is increasing its attachment to the world instead of Shree Krishna. I have only described these points very briefly. For a full description, please read "Prem Ras Siddhant" by Jagadguru Shree Kripali Ji Maharaj.

what is bhav deh?plz elaborate

Answer: Bhav deh refers to the Divine body that a devotee of the personal form of God receives upon entering the Divine abode. It begins to form in a very subtle and unperceivable way during the devotional period. In other words, as the person practices bhakti, their bhav deh begins to form. Upon God realization, the devotee receives a Divine mind, senses and body and becomes qualified to enter into the Divine abode of his worshipped form of God. In the Divine abode, the God realized Saint experiences God and the Divine abode with all 5 senses. It is with this Divine body, senses and mind that the Saint interacts with God and experiences the Bliss of the Divine abode. 
 
It is important to note that the quality of your bhav deh develops according to the quality of your devotional feelings during your sadhana. What I mean is that if you worship Shree Krishna with sakhya bhav, you will receive the body of a gwalbal and get to be in all the sakhya bhav leelas in Divine Golok. If you worship Him with vatsalya bhav, you will receive that mother/father to child relationship with Him forever in Divine Golok. And if you worship Him with madhurya bhav, then you will receive the form of a gopi and get to participate in all the kunj leelas of Divine Vrindaban abode.
 
If we want to reach that highest level of madhurya bhav, then we must set that as our goal from the very outset of our sadhana, because our bhav deh will be formed accordingly. We should pay particular attention to selflessness and try to learn from the examples of the gopis and rasik Saints who established the adarsh of true selfless devotion to Krishna (loving Him for His happiness; and feeling happy in His happiness).

1)Is it not true that a Mahapurush's children are also mahapurushs.How can otherwise an ordinary soul become so fortunate to get a mahapurush's association as his/her parent?. 2(a)If beggars come to our door and beg for something(money,clothe,food etc),since we don't know that person(patra/apatra), we have to say a'no' to him & close our door even if it hurts him.Will it be a paap from my side to hurt him?Iam really confused of how to practically deal with such people (b)There are also people who come for the collection on some special occasions(festivals,celebrations,constructions).How to deal with such people?

otherwise an ordinary soul become so fortunate to get a mahapurush's association as his/her
parent?.2(a) If beggars come to our door and beg for something(money,clothe,food etc),since we don't
       know that person(patra/apatra), we have to say a'no' to him & close our door even if it hurts him.Will
      it be a paap from my side to hurt him?Iam really confused of how to practically deal with such people
(b) There are also people who come for the collection on some special
      occasions(festivals,celebrations,constructions).How to deal with such people?
Answer: 1) In general, it would be logical to assume that the children of a Mahapurush would also be Mahapurush.



2.a) Giving food and clothing is the best option in these cases. Every human has a right to these basic necessities. Giving money is risky because the money could be used for something else other than the intended purpose of the donor. Then you would share in that pap if something bad is done with the money.



2.b) When it comes to donating to organizations, this is one way you could approach it: find an organization(s) that you trust and give charity through them in order to support their philanthropic activities. In God's eyes, He expects us to give charity according to our means. We should give what we can to help those in need. It does not matter whether all of those donations go through one single organization, or through many organizations. Thus, if someone comes to your door and you are already donating as much as you can through other reputable organizations, there is nothing wrong with telling them this fact and saying that you cannot give any more right now. However, if you happen to know and trust the organization being represented by the people at your door, then you may also choose to give to them. That is up to you.
