Babaraj is a work inspired by the life of the Great Siddha Master Baba Muktananda, sometimes referred to as the 'Lion of Ganeshpuri.' ‘Raj’ means ‘royal,’ and Muktananda exuded the demeanor of a wise and beneficent king in his dealings with all people. At the same time he demonstrated humility, giving all praise and honor to his own Guru, Bhagavan Nityananda. On a daily basis, Muktananda was available to meet with anyone who came to see him and answer their questions, as all great beings do.
Baba Muktananda often wielded a wand of perfumed peacock feathers, greeting visitors and devotees alike with a warm smile as he bestowed a gentle swoosh and bop on the head with his wand. He often spoke of seeing Consciousness as a pervasive and shimmering blue light, so we’ve embedded a natural blue star sapphire in the wand to symbolize that vision.
Each day Baba said to everyone, "I welcome you all with great love and respect." On Muktananda's behalf, we here at Masa Rasa Studios extend that same greeting to you.
