Yesterday, a Naga Baba asked me to sit beside him. ‘I’ve been trying to talk to you for so many days, but you don’t pay attention to me. Are you angry with me?’ he asked smilingly. Actually, I don’t pay attention to anyone, unless I think it’s necessary.
Naga Babas are generally friendlier than other Babas. They ‘re also natural in their lifestyle. ‘Wanna take some chilum(marijuana)?’ he asked. I might have given company to Baba by taking one or more puffs, but I don’t know how to smoke from a chilum. So, I said no.
In fact, I don’t feel like taking any intoxicant. Why take any intoxicant when you’re already happy naturally? But people are people. Sometimes people insist for cultural reasons & also to show camaraderie – so sometimes I do take a few sips of alcohol for social reasons. But I neither drink nor smoke nor take any intoxicants. These days, I take only my anti-hypertensive medication, and my hypertension is inherited, not acquired.
Then another man came & asked Naga Baba a few questions on awakening the Kundalini. The Naga Baba was honest. He said that he’s been trying to awaken his Kundalini through Bhajans but hasn’t been successful yet.
I’ve also increased my meditation hours. While meditating I focus on sensations all over the body. Yesterday morning I felt like my Nabhi Chakra was active for some time.
Looks like cultural tensions much higher in India that I’d previously thought. I was enjoying my time in Varanasi and the people also seem to have accepted me. But some Sadhu Babas are unhappy with me coz I don’t follow their ways. So, I’m thinking of moving to some other place.
