08 Apr An Interview with Nada Yogi Vibhushri
Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story? How did you get to where you are today?Read more...
Namaste, I am Nada Yogi Vibhushri Rivesh Vade. Since childhood, I have been exposed to the presence of many Masters. Through their grace, my journey has been very smooth and life-changing. I was introduced to sound in 8th grade when I was struggling in academics. Someone gifted me a cassette saying it would improve my grades. I was astonished to find myself in top five as I finished high-school. Two decades later, I was national manager of a leading company, happily married, respected by my bosses, friends & family. But I was growing restless and had never-ending hollowness within me; my fears and insecurities were gravely troubling; struggle was my middle name. I was looking for answers all around. Coming from science background, I had no association with spirituality. I knew there was something more to life, but didn’t know what. In 2012, I met with a near-death accident that left me partially paralysed—a blessing in disguise. While I was bedridden, several revelations through science of sound and vibrations unfolded me. I began applying and sharing this sacred knowledge to deal with issues and witnessed miraculous shifts within me and others. I had my calling, quit my job, founded Wellness Vibe & BodhMarga Foundation, and began guiding seekers. Through sound, we could help heal life-threatening chronic diseases and mental disorders. But sound took me beyond the realms of body-mind, guiding me towards self-realization and enlightenment. All thanks to my dear masters, their blessings brought me on the right path.
I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
People across the world have natural seeking for reaching a state of balance, awareness, bliss, and self-realization that could be practically experienced and sustained for long periods. Parts of population today have everything (success, money, power, etc.) yet are missing out on 3 very important factors necessary to lead a beautiful life– peace of mind, contentment, and happiness. There are no challenges for us to get our wisdom across because this is what people are struggling to find the most. After dodging a few bullets, one realises that the inhibitions they carried regarding their source of happiness being on the outside were false. Many are either pain or guilt-ridden and are trying to escape the endless emptiness within. Awakening is in fact the utmost need of the time. To attain the 3 qualities, it’s important that we move beyond just survival and procreation which is possible once we awaken. Today, the biggest challenges to combat are stress-lifestyle issues, because its intensity repels an individual from sensing their own being. This keeps the entire focus of humanity on external events. Indeed, BodhMarga allows us to move inwards. Masters are always ready to help people come out of outward illusions and become rooted in their true nature. Hence, we give immense prominence to the Master’s presence. Unfortunately, people today have cultivated a negative notion about Masters and Gurus, therefore; openness and receptivity towards the divine wisdom shared by them are relatively less. For easier understanding, we take them from science to spirituality.
Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?
At BodhMarga, we help people reach awakening; a stage of experiencing sustained heightened awareness with ease. An awareness that takes people years to attain through meditations, kriyas, yoga, etc. can be attained in just one moment of awakening- the path of direct liberation. Awakening (Bodh) is a state that can be directly transferred to the seeker through a Bodhi person (already awakened). Often, people live superficially without seeking to explore different dimensions of their being due to unawareness. We get carried away and manipulated by temporary aspects such as emotions; forgetting the permanent essence that lies within us. Awakening allows breaking-free from worldly illusions (Maya) and experiencing freedom beyond comprehension. Many live in suffering, incapable of embracing endowments like –universal love, fearlessness, expansion, due to tremendous attachments to externalities. But after awakening, you feel deeply connected to yourself and yet liberated from your patterns, living less in pasts & futures and staying more in present. Internally your state would remain calm & composed, like you’re on vacation, indifferent to externally chaotic, possibly gut-wrenching situations. This can be the best thing you can gift yourself. We also use tools of sound (singing bowls) to create healing frequencies that help in areas like prosperity, wellbeing, concentration, meditation, etc. Also, with the grace of my masters, the original essence of Bhagwad Gita, Dnyaneshwari automatically revealed to me & we wish to share this wisdom with many. We don’t need competitors; we need leaders who can work on our mission with us.
What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?
Those aspiring to succeed without missing the real juice of life such as peace, ease, serenity, fearlessness, composedness; there’s an unpopular yet influential phenomenon called ‘discipleship’. When you perceive yourself as the disciple of your life/universe, whatever is necessary for your growth and sustenance, flows into your life like a river. Where there’s doubt, there’s fear. But when there’s trust, there’s a flow, faith, patience, acceptance, and surrenderance which are qualities of a true disciple. This doesn’t mean one mustn’t do anything and success will come running! It means one must allow life to unfold itself and not obsess over situations that can’t be controlled. Situations that can be controlled should be guided by good intentions having considered the service of others too. Your success largely depends upon how surrendered you are to your Masters, to the universe, and to your higher-self. Discipleship once cultivated within, the Master shall automatically appear in your life. Surrendering is accepting whatever comes your way with grace & dignity, having faith, and knowing that everything will be taken care of. Resistance stops the flow of what could’ve been the best thing for you. Assuming that success only comes to those who work hard, bargaining over their peace is false. After joining BodhMarga, you’ll notice that you only do what is required; the unnecessary has dropped and you’ll see how your success, finances, and whatever necessary is flowing with ease. Our participants of Shri Padmini Vidya (advanced program at BodhMarga) are practically experiencing this phenomenon.
Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?
What you think, what you speak, what you do, and how you feel; when these four are in perfect alignment, I call it a success. In BodhMarga, we also call this a Head-Heart-Navel balance which is facilitated through Navel Awakening. The person with an awakened navel lives a life of balance, clarity, fearlessness, stability, and peace of mind. Another trait for success is when people around you are transforming and connecting to frequencies of harmony and compassion naturally, simply by being in your presence. This phenomenon is scientific, automatic, and practically experienced as our internal perceptions begin to alter. The science of Epigenetics says, when the internal perception shifts, it leaves a similar impact on the external environment. Through the power of awakening, when we begin to work on changing our internal frequencies and raising our consciousness by connecting to frequencies of universal motherly love (Mauli), forgiveness, and wisdom, we begin to impact the chemistry of the collective whole by catalysing ascension in the universal consciousness. There are many leaders in the world, but too many of us think that only external force, money, and power are judicious enough to succeed. I believe that the definition of success should be service & transformation oriented instead of driven by money and power. We need more compassionate leaders (Maulis) in our society, more givers and selfless servers, just like a mother who loves unconditionally. The presence of a Mauli has the power to transform their family, organizations and eventually impact nations.
What’s next for you?
I’ve been tasked by my Siddha Yoga Masters to take this liberating wisdom to the world so that the suffering humanity can reconnect with the higher consciousness, which is, in reality, our true nature and ultimate destiny.
We are on a mission to catalyse spiritual awakening and expansion of consciousness through the medium of sound, Nada Yoga, and Siddha Kirtan which have taken shape through our programs. To help accelerate this movement, we’re on the path of teaching very powerful and life-changing spiritual tools and techniques in the masses, which are directly revealed; such as the Vitthal Yoga Kriya, Pasaydana – ‘Cultivating the Art of Atonement’ and the use of GhoshPushpa (singing bowls) for spiritual ascension. Our motto is to spread the wisdom of quick and direct awakening across the globe hoping to reach as many spiritual seekers as possible. And finally, our purpose is to create more compassionate leaders or Maulis. ‘Mauli’ is motherliness beyond ordinary Mother Nature that’s applicable to and irrespective of all genders. It’s a state, a divine motherliness that doesn’t confine its love to one child but exudes it unconditionally to all beings. S/he becomes the channel of divine grace that possesses the power to touch, move, inspire and transform by just the presence. Such a presence helps eliminate sufferings, fills the void within, calms the mind, heals the body, and awakens the soul to its higher purpose. We hope to spread the experience of ‘Being Mauli’ amongst as many seekers as possible.
