Who was the Buddha?
The word ‘Buddha’ is a title, which means ‘one who is awake’ — in the sense of having ‘woken up to reality’. The Buddha was born as Siddhartha Gautama in Nepal around 2,500 years ago. He did not claim to be a god or a prophet. He was a human being who became Enlightened, understanding life in the deepest way possible.
In Vaishnava Hinduism, the historical Buddha is considered to be an avatar of the Hindu god Vishnu.
What is Deva?
Deva (/ˈdeɪvə/; Sanskrit: देव, Devá) means “heavenly, divine, anything of excellence”, and is also one of the terms for a deity in Hinduism. Deva is a masculine term; the feminine equivalent is Devi. In the earliest Vedic literature, all supernatural beings are called Devas.
Why am I Buddha Deva?
This is my spiritual name given to me by a Himalayas Enlightened Yogi. I didn’t ask him for a spiritual name. He just gave it to me without asking if I want it or no. And speaking truly, I didn’t want any spiritual names.
Who am I?
I am an ordinary human being. The same as you. I have a family: parents, a girlfriend, an ex-wife (12 years together!) and children. I have childhood wounds, health problems, debts, a computer master degree and my own online and offline businesses. And I have lots of pain, sorrow, and grief. The same as all of us…
There was a period in my life when I took drugs, alcohol, and smoked cigarettes for many years. In the end, I gave up smoking, alcohol, and drugs many many years ago.
And because I was very often unhappy I started to collect effective techniques on how to manage my mind and my relationships. I started to learn how to be calm and positive even if you have bodily pain, or you have no money, or nowhere to live, or you have no certainty, or you had a divorce or painful breakup. I started to contemplate what we are living for…
So, I went to India, I learned a lot and graduated two Indian schools as a meditation teacher and a yoga teacher. Yes, I am a certified meditation and yoga teacher.
I meditated a lot in the Himalayas.
I lived as a monk with Buddhist monks in Thailand monastery.
I mastered autogenic training, neuro-linguistic programming, Ericksonian hypnosis, imago relationship therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy.
And you know what? All these things just don’t matter. Pain, debts, money, breakups, divorces, childhood wounds, illness, business gains and losses ARE SMALL AND NOT IMPORTANT.
You see, there is no sense in any kind of drugs if you can feel always happy for free and live without any inner conflicts being grateful for what you have.
In my blog, I will share with you the best techniques that helped me to be calm, peaceful and relaxed even when I had no money or thought that I would die very soon.
