Traveling India – 2023 Part 1

Eye Of The Veda has been living and traveling throughout India over the winter and spring of 2023 and want to share some thoughts, pictures, videos, etc. I was in maharashtra first. Maharashtra is filled with legendary saints and spiritual masters. I was fortunate to get to visit some holy sites. One of the maharashtra highlights was being able to visit the exact cave that Shirdi Sai Baba used to meditate in, and the one that he got God-realized in. The energy there was profound. I was also able to visit the valley of the saints, where over 700 sufi saints have lived, including the perfect master that gave God-realization to Sai Baba, Zarzari Zar Baksh.

Pune – Birthplace of Avatar Meher Baba

In Pune I got to visit the ancient Pataleshwar Cave temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, as well as the childhood home of Avatar Meher Baba. That would be equatable to getting to visit the home of the Buddha less than a century after he passed away. Its quite a fortunate thing! Meher Baba’s childhood neighborhood is still left much the same as it was when he lived there. In general Poona is a great city. I would consider it one of the most livable cities in India.

Here are some pictures and videos from my time in Pune.

An image hung above Meher Baba’s childhood home reads “Real Happiness lies in making others happy.”

Right when I was starting to burn up waiting out in front of Baba’s house, this guy came out of nowhere. Baba’s grace!
Outside Pataleshwar cave we noticed a rickshaw driver who was also a Baba lover.

We had to stop and say hi! Jai Baba!

Pataleshwar Cave Temple

Pataleshwar cave temple is interesting because the city of Pune has grown up around it over the years. It is right in the middle of the city, but down in the cave it has an incredibly peaceful feeling permeating it, and was very suitable for meditation. The temple is right near the home of Meher Baba, and he used to go and meditate there as a youth. I had a profoundly amazing meditation there, and the prasad was unbelievable. You must stop by this temple if you are ever there. I love how peaceful it is down in the cave even though one is surrounded by a very noisy city environment.

A very holy banyan tree at the entrance to pataleshwar cave. The snakes love these trees.

Here is a Youtube video I made while here in Pune as well.

Ive also been updating the astrology and yogic philosophy course with a lot of new videos as well. Recently I covered a set of videos on the grahas as karakas. These vids show how the seven classical planets bring into our lives and essentially produce all the different people that we have relationships with in life. That course can be found here and you can also now take the nakshatra course along with it for the same price.

Here is another video I filmed that morning.
