The frantic pace of my life these days and the struggle to achieve the desired goals of bringing a positive change in my external environment has given rise to many questions. However, these questions were soon drowned in the hyper activities occurring these days. Even nights are mostly spent in thinking about how to inch towards my aims.
The questions which my mind is raising these days are:-
I have tremendous peace within me. God’s Light, or even a fraction and a speck of that Light gives me profound tranquility. However, the present task that God has assigned to me is of the bipolar world. A world where there is only impurity, profanation, devilry, offence and wrong-doing. To bring about a positive change, a constructive alteration in the current scenario and to bring order and harmony in this sinful world seems so difficult and remote!
Why has God chosen me? Why do I have to go through so much mental agony and weariness and not others? Why are there such few good and so many unscrupulous and mendacious people? If I have earned my peace of mind, when will I reap the harvest and be with myself?
Simply put, why doesn’t God give me isolation so that I can enjoy the serenity and uninterrupted calmness which I have earned with my endeavours? Why so much struggle in bringing about peace in the world? Why so much struggle and conflict in my life? Why do I have to involve myself with activities which are contrary to my sensibilities and taste? Why?
Oh! It has got so late tonight. The whole world seems to be sleeping except for me. It is already 2.00 a.m. and I am writing in my notebook because I have just been relieved and I have found my answers in God’s own peculiar and unique ways.
Before falling asleep I remembered God as I do everyday, who resides in me as pure Light. I first acknowledged His presence and expressed my gratefulness for all the help and support I am receiving from unexpected quarters these days for the task that he has assigned to me. I wish to attune myself perfectly well so that I am able to receive maximum help sent by God through various mediums. So, I blessed those people from the core of my heart whom I just visited a few hours ago because their genuine good vibrations reached and touched my heart. They meant good for me today. I also prayed for some more people whom I thought need God’s transmission of unseen protection and spiritual nourishment. They are with me in our struggle to bring about necessary social changes.
With these thoughts I lulled myself to sleep. As I put my head on the pillow, in my left ear very explicitly, I heard the sound of a gong of the astral bells ringing in a far off land. We all have heard the bells ringing with a beat, a rhythm in the temples and it is a ritual which we like. The sound of temple bells have a deep impact on our heart and the mind too. Even these bells that were ringing in my extra sensory ear were very enchanting as my attention became completely fine tuned to its sound. They were originating from the much higher energy centres in the energized spinal cord I felt. The continuous reverberating sound of the bells produced profound comforting calmness over me and I soon realized that I have got untied from the unremitting sense of body consciousness. I became very light and was raised to higher domains of deeper peace. I felt so free….very free….completely free….although for a few moments but I was in a different and distant space of freedom and weightlessness.
As my concentration on the sounds of the bells became sharper, I began to hear the sound of Om originating along side the sounds of the bells. I could hear the bells ringing as well as the sound of Om both together at this stage. The sacred sound of Om gave me tremendous peace; I considered myself truly blessed at this Divine hour.
After a while, the ringing of the bells stopped and only the sound of Om was reverberating in my ear clearly. Om…… Om….. Om…… Om…… Om……Om……mmm……….m.
These vibrating sound waves then began to circulate from my head to my arms, torso, legs, toes and then to each body part and every cell of my being. Each cell of my body began to vibrate with the sound and current of flowing Om which left me permeated with complete silence and infused with quietude. I experienced before long what I had read many years ago in scriptures – ‘Naad Ghosh.‘
Naad means dhwani, sound, an indescribable word and ghosh means to announce, promulgate or proclaim .
I remember well I must have stayed in this state for sometime when…..
I received my answer from God in explicit spoken words “Dukh mei sukh chupa hai, andhere mei prakash, asatya mei Satya. Jeevan ek sangram hai. Jeevan sangarsh hai. Prakash ko pane ke liye andhkar se guzarna padta hai. Satya ko janane ke liye asatya ko jaanana padega aur sukh pane ke liye dukh sahana padega. Yahi jeevan ka sangharsh hai.”
“In sorrow is hidden happiness, in darkness Light, Truth in falsehood. Life is a conflict. Life is a struggle. To attain Light, one has to go through darkness. To know the Truth, one must know falsehood and to achieve happiness, one must go through sorrow. This is the struggle of life.”
I have found my answers to the ongoing conflict and turmoil in my mind. I am at ease with myself. I am now at peace with myself !
Peace for me! Peace for you! Peace for all!!
# Om, the giver of peace
# Naad ghosh
# Life is a conflict # Life is a struggle.
# To know the Truth, one must know falsehood
# Principle of Soul evolution

My conclusion and comments today after reading and revising this article written twelve long years ago on 10.03.09.
I have come an extremely long way in my quest to know and realize the highest fundamentals of Truth. The sadhana of Om has got so much deeper now. My realizations are so many, extremely deep and touching the deepest layers of the unconscious mind, may be just one speck of imagery which should be removed for complete disintegration of my past. Reverberating sound of Om has helped disintegrate some of the lingering, excruciating dots of memories of a few past life times; they were buried and concealed in an unseen nook and were isolated. They were at my current stage of advance and peaked consciousness, acting as an unseen shackle and hindrance in yoking and uniting my super sensitive mind through and through with Omnipresent God, Parmeshwar forever.
Om has dissolved even that tiny crystal of one impending memory; in its place I have planted seeds of regeneration in the form of peace, hope and love.
I realized Om has deep peace, very deep peace within it. Peace heals, Om heals and restores, rehabilitates the fragmented pieces of life.
Om sound heals the deepest possible level of one’s mind, it recharges the DNA of our broken cells and regenerates the body, mind and our Spirit. We revive our life.
The rhythmic, ebb and flow of the divine sound Om is healing, recuperating and divinizes our whole being. The fall and rise of one invocation in the chant of sound Om is one cycle. Continuous, rhythmic, cyclic sound waves create positive, recharging and healing impact on the practitioner by generating subtle electrical waves from those sound waves of Om. The extremely gentle vibrations of Om touching the body inside and outside and beyond its boundaries cause a rhythmic pattern of revitalizing deep peace.
Send these peaceful sound waves of those areas of body, mind or Spirit which need to be repaired, regenerated or bounced back to life. Or to others.
Om chanting before and after meditation amplifies the reverberation of its sound waves in your atmosphere. It echos thus recharges the far off places also with positive, healing vibrations in the Universe.
Incorporate Om in your life.
Conflict, Peace & Deep struggle of conflict and peace. It begins with a specific episode of one main incarnation in segments-1, 2 and 3. They are titled Conflict, Peace and Deep struggle of conflict and peace. The whole process is described when a Soul is entangled in a conflict, it longs for peace but peace is not easily attainable.
The Soul has to go through a deep struggle to free itself from the opposite forces in nature. This is a principle of Soul evolution. Every Soul has to redeem itself to become free of anti-God forces which are in the way of the Soul to bloom. The Soul has to go through the struggle with fortitude and determination and take truth and virtues as its weapons to conquer evil.
A healing Raga- Hansdhwani
Purpose of listening to this Raga- Hansa means a swan and dhwani means sound, the sound of the swan. The Raga is to distill your mind and clear out all doshas, impurities of the mind. When you meditate with invocation and repetition of Om, you progress in the spinal chord and become free of many impurities. When God wills, a fraction of the five elements or panch tattvas disintegrate from your spinal chord and return to the atmosphere thus freeing you of the impending effects of your karmas which are detrimental and obligatory .
Positive side effects after reading this post on Om– Some people may face uneasiness, upheaval or disturbing phases of mind temporarily. Ignore it, instead focus on calming your mind and remain patient, it is a temporary phase. Seek guidance within, you will receive. Awakening of Omnipresent in you is a blessing from God. Some may even fall into a samadhi state as I went into which I have described here; such is the power of Om.
