It was a very pleasant morning and as soon as I woke up, I was eagerly desirous to meditate so that I could once again lose myself and be one in the ocean of God’s endless flow of grace. The last few weeks have been full of rapid learning and like a child going to school and enthusiastically waiting for the teacher to arrive in the class, I sat to meditate on that day to have one peek, to sneak a quick look of the infinite which is so irresistible and endearing. Therefore, at the beginning of meditation, I requested God and pleaded- “God I want to know more about you, I want to come closer to you, bring me closer to you, more closer to you my Lord.”
Hearing my plea, God responded without delay when the effulgent Light cascaded on me and covered me completely. I basked in the morning sunshine as well as divine Light simultaneously in my room and rejoiced till the most inner core of my being. Such glorious moments of intense joy and ananda, such blissful moments, so much Light! Who would ever wish to come out of such embalming Divine showers?!
God’s answer in words also trickled in very quietly, “I accept your sweet request and wish to give you more knowledge, very intense knowledge prachand gyan.
(Refer last portion of Expand your Consciousness-II)
“After Self realization there are three stages. First there is shanti- peace, after shanti there is a stage of Divine sound-Om and after Om there is complete silence- shunya or void, a complete thoughtless state.
I am going to tell you about one kind of meditation. This technique of meditation is for those who are pure in heart and faithful to God. After your meditation whatever you practice, do this kriya or action in order to attain indescribable peace.”
Visualize white Light on top of your head at the crown chakra. Let it remain there for some time or as much as you wish.
Bring this Light from your head to your shoulders. Feel the white Light on your shoulders, remain still. You will experience peace.
Bring down the Light from your shoulders to your spine and then to your root chakra. Let the Light remain there for some time.
The spine is a hollow tube which starts from the base and ends at the base of the neck. We will pass the divine Light in the hollow tube up and down many times.
Practice this and experience unalloyed peace within you……
I did as was told to me and I saw the dancing particles of energy in my cerebrum after this exercise and the peace is lasting for days on.
Maharishi Agastya’s blessed words of insight and ancient knowledge once more-
“Those souls who have been living in this universe for a very, very long time are a treasure and store house of Earth’s as well as man’s history. Just imagine how much we have seen, how much we have known and imagine how many eras, epochs and time cycles we have witnessed.**
The time that was followed after the creation of the Earth, was very heavenly and delightful. There was no insufficiency or deficiency. Slowly, with time the population of humans increased and the trees were felled. The deterioration and destruction on the Earth is due to human follies and lack of sight and vision.
Once Africa was very prosperous in vegetation and animal life but pride and arrogance combined with greed depleted its resources. There were more sins than virtuous acts committed. The more faith we have in God, the more gladness and happiness generated around. Whenever the sins of man exceed on this earth, God has to send a very luminous soul to re-establish Truth and Dharma called Avatar to remind us of the eternal knowledge and truth that advocates having compassion on all living beings, loving all, doing good to all and helping all men. Where ever there is a surge of wrongful acts, there is disturbance, remorse, unrest and disorder and people are in agony and pain. The luminous Souls or Avatars as they are called incarnate and give their punyas or meritorious karmas to Mother Earth and that in return brings back peace, order, cheerfulness and love. Dharma or righteousness and Truth are re-established. If we also add something as our contribution towards this objective and mission of the Avatar or other realized souls and dharmatmas, then their workload shall be eased. The positive rays of Divine Light emitted by them generate peace, happiness, greenery and relaxation to the tensed minds on the Earth.
We must always remember our duties towards our country and to God. Family duties can also be somehow managed; it is not a big issue. When we work for God, our household and family responsibilities are taken care by God itself-
“Sarvadharmanparityajaya mamekam sharanam vraja”
These lines are from Bhagwad Geeta which I quote here. Chapter 18 verse 66.
Sarvadharmanparityajaya mamekam sharanam vraja I
Aham tva sarvapapebhoya mokshayishyami ma shuchaha II
Resigning all your duties to Me, the all powerful and all supporting Lord take refuge in Me alone, I shall absolve you of all sins, worry not.
At this point, a flash of Divine Light hit me in the third eye and the Light spread inside and outside. It percolated in all the different sections of my body. After it spread, it dawned on me that-
Divine knowledge is eternal, it never changes although the world will change, people will come and go but the sacred knowledge will always remain the same. It is hence called Sanatan Dharma or Eternal Religion
Maharishi Agastya continued with his flow of Divine words after giving me a glimpse of the sacred light and knowledge. He said,
“The human by nature is constricted and restricted; it likes dullness, timidity and obscurity. When he gets Light in the form of wisdom, he does not accept it. Knowledge of God and Self is eternal and we must attempt to attain it. Knowledge is Light, with knowledge we get to see God.”
Mahavatar Babaji’s golden drops of divine words in meditation-
Incessant grace of revered His Holiness Mahavatar Babaji once more. He enlightened me by throwing so much light on areas which are out of purview of average human mind and my day became so much richer. He began by saying-
“What you are going to receive from me now is because of the good karmas of your many lives. This is ‘prasad,’ grace from God to you and you must share it with all.
After Self Realization, a seeker transcends and attains three stages of further development, one by one if he has the will and desire to attain, if only he has ichcha shakti.
1st stage- After self realization, there is a stable state of sustaining peace. The mind’s agitation stops and one is calm most of the time.
2nd stage- The stage of Om. Continued sound of Om, the divine sound is heard in meditation or in other times as well by the meditator.
3rd stage-During meditation many times the culminating stage is also touched, the stage of thoughtlessness called shunya or void, a state of Pure being.
The meditator passes from one stage to another and after long practice of concentration and meditation and Guru’s grace, he stabilizes in one such stage and then shifts to the higher one. The mind and body have to be prepared and fine tuned for such higher stages. Right diet, enough sleep and regular exercise are of prime importance. Ayurvedic medicines such as Brahmi, Ashwagandha, Shatavari are good brain tonics. Foods such as amla, almonds, nuts, milk and milk products, fresh fruits and vegetables play a vital role in nourishing and recharging the nerve cells and channels (Refer Food and breath control) Head and body massage with a nourishing and rejuvenating oil and aromatherapy are also helpful to a great extent and are supportive in creating a healthy well being.” He went further ahead by saying the what is mentioned in the oldest Vedas, the Rig Veda.
“When the Universe was not born, what was there? Shunya- void, emptiness, no thought stage. A state of bliss, ananda, eternal joy.
In a world full of people there is chaos and commotion in the atmosphere. The thoughts that float in the space clash with each other and it becomes harder to meditate upon God in a modern world. The relentless noise of traffic, people and machines add to the disturbance in the atmosphere.
The Earth is a unit, one house, it is one. Do not think in terms of country or community, see the Earth as one planet and the planet as a whole. It is yours. At the moment, our Earth is passing through the lowest level where the rate of unrighteousness, sins, lust for money, greed in on the surge and increasing everyday. This trend should be reversed and we must make our planet greener, more peaceful and pious once again.”
Babaji concluded very beautifully when he took me to greater heights as he told me-
“Those who wish to soar higher and touch new heights should follow this blog and they will realize the power of God. There is road beyond Self Realization, the latter is a phase, a sojourn in the very long path of the pilgrimage and we need not stop here.
After we get to Self Realization, the second stage is of Knowledge of Atman which should be attained. The next stage is of Cosmic Consciousness or Virat Swaroop, it is followed after knowing Atman. God is eternal, indestructible know Him. Expand your thinking and limitations and do good to yourself.
Simultaneously, there are many depths and levels of peace. Profound peace, intense peace and limitless peace.
There are several levels of knowledge too. Move onward.
Reach the thoughtless state, the state of perfect perfection!
If you reach the state of shunya void, you will be able to unfold all the mysteries of nature.
There are several stages of bliss or ananda also. There is no limit or boundary for it.
Human is unable to attain great degree of perfection mainly because of his social commitments and obligations. Break the barrier of all layers of ego. Free your mind from very old pattern of habits and sanskaras.
And don’t forget to pray and meditate regularly for the good of all- living as well as non- living beings.”
I bow and prostrate humbly at the Lotus Feet of Shri Mahavatar Babaji and his Guru Agastya Maharishi whose incessant flow of Grace is flowing and benefiting uncountable number of people spiritually in so many ways. He is so merciful to have awakened us from deep slumber of so many earthly lives……….

Once the Spirit unfolds in us and you know Atma, there are three levels of aspiration and heights to accomplish after that. In accordance, there are three types of gyan or wisdom – Teevra gyan, Prachand gyan and Prabhutva gyan. When we translate that, it means wisdom that is intense, very intense and most intense respectively.
“Those souls who have been living in this universe for a very, very long time are a treasure and store house of Earth’s as well as man’s history. Just imagine how much we have seen, how much we have known and imagine how many eras, epochs and time cycles we have witnessed

will be back to re-read and comment.
I agree to you when you say no one can take away what your destiny, but due to their ill-feelings and present karma, they can sometimes throw hurdles and cause delays, right? That’s when patience and faith become very important.
When you say “nothing goes unnoticed in the eyes of God” you remind me of the poem The Final Analysis.:)
I like the idea of using time saved by not running after success, attention to focus on god and meditate.
I can’t say much about what you’ve written. Most of it way beyond my experience. I haven’t even experienced shanti yet, so shunya is waaaay beyond my comprehension. It is not something that I can even imagine. Will come back to comment on this part of the post, may be ten years from now!
Dear Mandira, Great to hear from you, your interest in re- reading the post is appreciated.I can imagine you being speechless because so much knowledge and grace is being bestowed on us, it is we who have to recognize and acknowledge this grace and make full use of it. Knowledge is Light, knowledge frees us. So sustain your interest in freeing yourself from past knowledge and illumine yourself with new Light!
Now I said nobody can take away your destiny, it is true. If there is a delay or hindrance, it is because of effects of past karmas. Let some persons come in your life and let some go, this is also karmic. Those who are not good to us, will eventually have to go provided we have no ill feelings for them and have faith in God’s mercy and judgement. They come because of karmic connection. Let the effects of past karmas dwindle and simultaneously create new pious and positive karmas by blessing them all in your meditations! That’s the best time to bless all. We should have enough time to do good to others more of ‘mentally’ than physically. That is good ‘sankalp’. With new ‘sankalpa’ create a new ‘srishti’, a new glorious and blesssed life!!!
You have just begun on your path, keep practicing silence, concentration and meditation in free times. During hectic activities and ruffled mind, do japa or say some mantra. Bring back your mind to your heart or head, the centre of consciousness.
One day, you will experience ‘shunya’ with God’s immense grace. Keep on doing good to all.
Waiting patiently for God to respond is ‘tapasya’
Who has achieved God without tapasya? Gold when thrown in the fire shines, its dullness burns away!!
Have a blessed day, my child! God is always with you, forever and forever!! Ma
Felt like there is lot of Power in this sentence and read it three times “After Self realization there are three stages. First there is shanti- peace, after shanti, there is a stage of Divine sound-Om and after Om there is complete silence -shunya or void, a complete thoughtless state. ”
After I read the White Light meditation technique, I smiled gently and then next thing i know there were tears in my eyes waiting to come out. I was surprised. Why the tears, beats me, don’t know why.
For all householders who complain that they have no time for God or meditation this sentence on this post should be recited to them
“When we work for God, our household and family responsibilities are taken care by God itself- “Sarvadharmanparityajaya mamekam sharanam vraja” ” This sentence on the Outer book cover would be great for them since i feel many would pick up and buy or atleast glance through your book.
“After we get to self realization, the second stage is of Knowledge of Atman which should be attained. The next stage of Cosmic Consciousness or Virat Swaroop is followed after knowing Atman.”
Oh and all this while I was asking God just for self realization. Good to know there are more levels beyond self realization, so we get to dive deeper and deeper into God’s Joy and Peace, Yahooooooooooooo 🙂
Also felt a desire to hear the sound of OM and was wondering what it sounds like. I am sure i will hear it one day with Beloved Babaji’s blessings.
Yesterday night I was also lead to this youtube video of Arut Perum Jyothi
Thani Perum Karunai mantra of Swami Ramalinga which i recited a few times. Those who wish to download this mantra mp3 can do so at:
There is also an energized picture of Swami Ramalingam and
the Grace Light which can be seen at home page of above site.
The video with this mantra chanting is at:
Replying in sequence and order. This post is exceptional and high in status and highly reccommended for those who are interested in esoteric knowledge. Imagine going that far….. in time and space when the Universe was also not created!!Before the Universe was created there was peace, Om and shunya in preceding sequence. That means before anything was ever created , there was shunya. By shunya I mean very quiet, very, very quiet. No sound, leave alone any word or thought.
And imagine we are that! That is called Brahma or Atma, we are that……
A glimpse of ‘Atma’ your soul has perceived when you were reading each word..This is a fleeting moment of sakshatkar, ‘Atmasakshatkar.’The tears are because our soul has wondered so far away from the real Self and incidentally when with Guru’s compassion, we are able to get a slight expeerience of it, our heart is overwhelmed. Keep this experience in your memory as this can be the stepping stone and a proof of Brahma’s existence in us. Let the Grace flow, surrender more much more, and take the grace of God and Guru as kripa and mercy……When you leave your burden on your Guru with all devotion and faith, your sins are washed and all worries vanish. The Guru will help us navigate our path without any hurdles, take his shelter, be in his refuge……this Geeta shloka is very important.Memorize it.
Only a paramgyani Guru knows that there are stages beyond Self realization and levels and stages of everything- be it knowledge, peace or joy. All we need is a desire to attain that.
Loved the hymn/shloka in this video. It reminded me of Ramanna Maharishi and his Tiruvannmalai abode. There is so much peace in it. May there be peace and light everywhere. Om shanti, shanti,shanti Om…….
Dear Ma, While replying to Mandira Didi’s comment, I thought you are talking to me. Thanks for sharing this post. I need to read it several times to absorb the message of the great masters. Ma, You would have done many exceptionally good karmas to get a Guru like Babaji Maharaj. I wonder when I will reach there.
Ma,I had this question in my mind. So felt like asking you on this blog. If good Karmas help us move forward on the path of God, then why did Maharishi Valmiki, who was a robber & killer in his life got transformed into an illumined sage? I have also read a story of a man in Swami Rama’s autobiography, who avenged his father’s killing by murdering his assassins. The man in question met self-realised men of God and they helped him atone for his sins and achieve self realisation. Now, what was the reason behind the divine help and subsequent transformation of such sinful people. Isn’t remorse and the realisation of the need to redeem ourselves not sufficient to move ahead?
My dear Resham, I feel I should not postpone this question’s answer any more in spite of being totally involved in some family obligations in the previous days. First thing first-
What are the qualities of a real seeker of God? Think….
Such a person is so absorbed and completely immersed in his or her own redemption, search, devotion, service and meditation and all that is required to get what one really wants that there is no time available to allow the mind to wander so much!
I do have answers about what you asked about Valmiki rishi but tell me something how will it help you? That is somebody else’s story and destiny and karmas. Still to satisfy your curiosity I am answering your question that there were some exceptional punyas or good karmas of Valmiki rishi that overshadowed his bad ones and hence the drastic change in him from a severe wrong doer to a sage….
Now do what I tell you-
Stop your mind in futile and unproductive thinking, set your goals of achieving what you wish to attain in the God world,be obedient and do as directed.
If your surrender is complete, you shall avail the blessings of your Guru who will guide you at every step.
By the way, I am still waiting to hear about your Varanasi trip, expect you to tell me about your progress.
Stay in tune with the divine souls and rest in peace mentally. Practice calmness of mind and body every day.
Dear Ma, I feel so happy to see you interested in knowing about my Varanasi trip. 🙂 I have shared some imp details via email. I know what you are trying to make me understand again and again. Will meditate on your words more like I always do. With love, Resham
thanks ma for answering that question, it is helpful for me too.
My humble pranam to sri babaji and ma, pls accept it.
“Such a person is so absorbed and completely immersed in his or her own redemption, search, devotion, service and meditation and all that is required to get what one really wants that there is no time available to allow the mind to wander so much!”
may lord bless all of us , to get strength for this journey.
“Almost everybody that you find around yourself will be competitive, insecure, will run after success and importance- take it for granted. It is because they do not know any other way of life. One should only compete with oneself just to excel by raising their standards and the bar of excellence. And the time that will be saved by not running after only success, importance and attention should be utilized to worship the omnipresent Guru and use that available extra time for increasing the intensity, duration and depth of your meditation. This is for the spiritual journey.” – Great Point and Great Lesson. Thanks Sarika Ma for telling this to your readers. Regards, Jerry.
II Jai Sat Guru II
