Bhakti devotional to Neem Keroli Babu a Hanuman devotee.
see; Hanuman Chalisa , Krishna Dass, www.maharaji.com
In the 80's I first came across Ram Dass at a Down to Earth festival in New Zealand. He was charismatic and a n imposing figure.
Later in the ninties I read his book The Miracle of Love whilst in Rishikesh. There I realized the magic of his Guru Neem Keroli Babu. Ram Dass's writing
My teacher Virsah Singh gave the instruction to read the Hanuman Chalisa in the meditation fire area or Havan. I felt it was to allow us to find courage in an changing world with many challenges. I think it was said that Baba related that the Chalisa would provide strength to such a task.
It was in 1991 that I found my Guru Baba Virsah Singh.
There has been a lot written on Gurus since the Beatles met Maharishi in Rishikesh.
Later in the 90's I visited the Hanuman temple near Mehrauli village Delhi and also in the Hillside town of Shimla.
All I can say is if you meet a true Guru you will never be the same after that point. It is a spiritual implosion. No words go near to explaining half of what it does to you and your life.
Just embrace the journey until you come home to love. Krishna Das on ABC radio
