Sai Baba, Shiv Baba, Rum Baba!

rum baba - my baba!

Food is one of my favourite topics in life. Everyone should be have some major passions in life – one of mine is food. After all food is what sustains us through thick and thin.

Many years ago during my college days I came across this amazing sweet dish called Rum Baba. Life was never the same again. Anytime rum baba was on the menu, I used to have the dessert before the main course.

Being Indian having different courses was strange – we have all our dishes together – the sweets being the perfect antidote to the spicey food. So when confronted with all this western food and different courses, I adopted quickly by having the dessert first and the bland main course second 🙂

Some friends at college were sustained by religion, music, sport – I had my Rum Baba. After college and a few desolate years without my baba, one day I found a supermarket that stocked Rum Baba. I knew then just how Columbus must have felt upon discovering “India”. My friends and family treated me many a time with a solitary rum baba as a surprise and a treat.

Mysteriously, Rum Babas then disappeared from supermarket shelves. Almost at around the same time, I underwent many changes in my own life. More years of isolation and misery followed until very recently when I discoverd that my local and favourite and local coffee shop Richoux supplies Rum Babas!

A special order is required, as long as they are ordered in a batch of four. It is a hard life indeed.

So life is good once again. I have come through some tough years 🙂

Today some people have Sai Baba, others Shiv Baba – I have my Rum Baba.

The question is just what is your true passion in life? What sustains you in your life?

Just what is your Rum Baba?

  1. Several weeks back, I came home hungry, after a long tiring day in the city. As I opened the fridge door, there was a surprise gift. A box of Rum Babas!

    It turned out that on his way to Coventry, Arvind had paid my family a visit, and dropped round a box of rum babas for us all to enjoy.

    When I looked inside the box, there was already one missing – Arvind! Nah, too right, of course he should have had one – no denying it. Cool gift – thanks for sharing!

    So I had to pay it forward. I sliced one rum baba in half, and had my share, then offered the rest to dad, Sawan, Jilna and Kavit. Everyone enjoyed it! Yum yum.

    Raja Yoga is known as the highest of all teachings because the aim of Raja Yoga is perfection; not merely bringing about a little change or making someone a better person, but the definition and the aim of Raja yoga are perfection. ???? ??? ??? ???????? ?? ???????? ??? ??? ???? ???? ?? ??????? ???? ??? ?? ???????? ??????? ??, ?? ????? ??? ???? ??? ?? ???? ?? ????? ?? ???? ??? ??? ?? ????? ??????? ???? ??, ????? ??????? ?? ???? ??? ?? ???????? ??????? ???. There is a recognition that the soul was the divine, has now lost its divinity, but that it is possible to regain that divinity once again. ?? ??????? ?? ?? ????? ?? ???????? ??? ??, ?? ???? ??????? ?? ???? ??, ????? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?????? ? ?? ??? ??? ???? ??. So Raja Yoga works on soul. ?? ???? ??? ????? ?? ??? ???? ??. This Yoga (union) is the method by which there is a transformation in the very personality, the very nature, of the soul itself, that is, within the Sanskaras. ?? ??? (?????????) ???? ?? ????? ?????? ???? ???? ?????????? ??? ?? ???????? ??, ????? ?? ???? ?? ???????,,, Sanskaras ?? ???? ??. The significance of this is that the devilish qualities that have been acquired over the few past thousands of years are all shed, and the original divinity sparkles once more. ?? ?? ????? ?? ?? ?? ?????? ??? ?? ?? ??? ?? ??? ????? ?????? ?? ????? ???? ??? ?? ?? ????? ???, ?? ??? ??????? ?? ??? ??? ???? ???? ???.

    Method ????
    The aim of Raja Yoga is perfection; the method is the connection with the supreme. ???? ??? ?? ???????? ??????? ??, ???? ??? ?? ??? ????? ??. Whilst I only have connection with human beings or even with prophets and messengers, I cannot reach my own most elevated stage. Whilst ??? ???? ???? ???? ?? ??????????????? ?? ????? ?? ??? ?? ????? ??, ??? ???? ???? ???? ???? ?? ???? ????? ???? ???. But when I have union with the supreme, I am given the strength to erase my own defects, and the strength to absorb all virtues and achieve perfection. ????? ??? ??? ?? ??? ?? ??? ??, ??? ????? ?? ???? ????? ?? ????, ?? ????? ?? ??? ??? ?? ??????? ?? ??????? ??????? ???? ???? ???.

    The Complete Stage ???? ?????
    THE STAGE OF PERFECTION could be described as BEING COMPLETELY VICELESS, COMPLETELY VIRTOUS, FILLED WITH ALL DIVINE TALENTS AND ATTRIBUTES AND COMPLETELY NON-VIOLENT – the soul who follows the highest code of conduct. ??????? ?? ??? ???? ??? ?? VICELESS, ???? ??? ?? VIRTOUS, ???????? ??????? ?? ??? ????????? ?? ???? ??? ?? ?????? ?? ?? ?? ??? ??? ????? ???? ?? ???? ?? – ????? ?? ???? ?????? ?? ??? ???? ??????
