Babaraj is a work inspired by the life of the Great Siddha Master Baba Muktananda. ‘Raj’ means ‘royal,’ and Muktananda exuded the demeanor of a wise and beneficent king in his dealings with all people, giving freely of his time and presence to those who came to him for knowledge. At the same time he was humble, giving all praise and honor to his Guru, Bhagavan Nityananda. On a nearly daily basis, Baba would be available to meet with anyone who came to see him, as all great beings do, and answer their questions. Both Masa and Rasa were greatly blessed to spend much time in his company.
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.
