My great friend, as I now know, Beru Baba (at the time I spelt what I heard as Beroo. It has taken me 25 years to find out the true meaning of the mantra that he gave me….but that will be a story for another time and blog!)
OM BOM BUTTOCK BEROO NAMAY.
Is what I heard.
I did not use this mantra as I needed to know its meaning first.
The only mantra I was ever given by a genuine holy person and I simply could not find out what it meant!
‘beru‘ is a type of berry no?
I am now pretty certain, after asking any Hindu knowledgables I bumped into and eventually piecing it together through Google! that it was probably BATUK BHAIRAV that he was trying to describe to me. Certainly this search led me to him!
“Little Shiva.” “Little Shiva” he kept saying.
I had thought, as he resided in the monkey temple, that it was some kind of winged,baby Hanuman, flying Shiva messenger he was blessing me with! Largely due to the way he was excitedly pointing at a postcard of Mount Meru with Shiva in the sky and a small, winged monkey messenger flying toward him.
I never managed to find that image again.
If anyone has anything else to add to this I would be very interested!
