God Within-II

Sunrise in Pondicherry

Part A

Dear fellow travellers, as a fresh new year has arrived at our door with new visions, new promises and new aspirations of all kinds, let us all begin this day and year with a powerful learning which should be embedded in our minds forever. Out of so many blog-posts, some should be etched indelibly. Hope this one plays that role for you today and you imbibe and pick up at least as many as five points for yourself and live up to those in your everyday life. With this pure intention in my heart, I begin my new year by publishing a new post on 1st January’14. I wish to share some of my spiritual experiences so that even if you could not travel to those parts of India, you can sitting at home, revitalize yourselves with some ancient knowledge as revealed to me during my own meditations.

This post has two parts. Part A is the remaining conversation from previous post ‘God Within’-I.

Part B as indicated in the last post is about my recent travel to South India in mid-December’13 to Pondicherry, Madurai and Palani.

Quoting from ‘God Within-I’.

 This question was sparked off unplanned and incidentally because I see all men sleeping in a very deep slumber. Wherever I go, I see them in some kind of delusion and charmed sleep. In spite of so much exterior material progress which is any way made by just a few great men in the world, I have realized that apart from a few enlightened people, all of us are either in a dreaming state of mind or people are sleeping in some kind of darkness and they have no sense of awakening in them at all even if best and appropriate environments are given time to time. They are so, so so……. far from the realization that God exists within and that they should listen to the whispers of God residing inside and then carry out their actions. Living in spiritual darkness is far more regressive and hard if compared with all the hardships put together that a human suffers for achieving spiritual enlightenment! But God’s deluding power is so overwhelming that everyone is suffering in that delusion.

God’s reply which came instantaneously to me was, “Out of millions of people barring a handful who are alive, they do not know and recognize that there are three hidden powers of God in them that are governing their spiritual evolution and progress. God has created these three powers in this Cosmos. This information is not stored in any scripture or holy books either but is concealed in the Soul of human beings.

They are Sankalpa Shakti, Ichcha Shakti and Kriya Shakti– The powers of thought, will and action respectively. These powers are hidden inside the core being of any human like Kundalini Shakti and are only activated by the illumined Master if and when God desires as sheer Grace. The previous sections of the blog were written highlighting the essence of these subtle primordial energies in a compact form. More knowledge shall be discussed in the new segment aptly titled ‘God Within’ by you in forthcoming posts”…………

01.01.14

Continuing from the last post………..

I asked God what kind of ichcha shakti are we talking about because surely this kind of will should be different from normal worldly will power. Please explain to me.”

I was directed to this post which I had written in the past. It is ‘Why is Atman so difficult to know?’

I was reminded of its content. And the content is- “We unknowingly roam and wander everywhere in the world in search of happiness, comfort, contentment and peace. We search for it in objects, material gain, success, relationships, sensual pleasures, temptations, vices and so many other deceiving aims. But sadly we are never ever satisfied with anything for long as everything in this sansara or world is short lived and has ‘anshik sukh’ partial happiness.

Once we get entangled in this sansara, the place of birth and death due to our karmic cycle, we get trapped in the chakravyuhu, the webmire and unconquerable maze like Abhimanyu in Mahabharat. It is almost impossible to come out of this maze and puzzle of this sansara. We too, like Abhimanyu of know how to enter the world-maze but do not know the secret of escaping because of our slumber and lack of right knowledge. To be able to wake up from the sleep of ignorance, we may take a few eras and millenniums!! Now this is a sad situation. Hence it is advised by the sages and the learned that we must make special efforts or darun prayatna to liberate ourselves. The sadguru will surely help us but we must also make tremendous efforts from our side to liberate ourselves or else we shall again get lost in the maze and we shall again lose the opportunity of liberating ourselves by shutting the door of salvation with our own hands. To avoid this fragile situation, there are created so many types of spiritual practices for us to use as anchors and tools to thwart drifting.

Gradually, the ordinary intellect must be made sharper and refined by discrimination and spiritual wisdom as Atman is extremely subtle.”

God to me, “Daarun prayatna or very special efforts arise out of your own will power. This exceptional will power to eradicate one’s ignorance of Truth and relieving oneself from it and mitigating all the sufferings and miseries that arise out of taking wrong actions or actions done with dim understanding, carelessness or one’s vices is hidden inside you. Awaken that will. Arouse that latent will power. It is God given, man is ignorant about it. The dormant will to see the Truth, the Light of God within, to live in that ever prevalent Light, Truth and Peace are forgotten by you.”……..(to be continued in next post)

 Part B

This part of the post is regarding my visit to the South of India to Palani, the Samadhi place of Shri Bogarnatharji, the guru maharaj of Shri Mahavatar Babaji from whom he took Kriya deeksha in his youth. This visit was so different from the previous one-Unprecedented public, completely different system of darshan and getting into the main premises impossible. And to top it all absolutely long queues demanding minimum 4 to 5 hours to get into the main temple which was at the top of a medium sized mountain. All seemed difficult and unmanageable. I waited for a while quietly and patiently looked up to God within to deliver me some solution to my problem. How do I enter the main premises on the  mountain where there are two shrines out of which one is the cave where Guru Bogarnatharji meditated thousands of millions years ago?

God always has some special plan and design for us and that plan is invariably hidden from us. It is revealed only when God deems fit. Due to a lingering unspecific knee grievance, I was abstaining from climbing steps as advised by the physician. But after reviewing the whole scenario, we took a spontaneous decision to climb the mountain by stairs and not car pulleys to save time and reach the mountain in the shortest time so that we could get few minutes of meditation at that ancient holy shrine for our spiritual progress. To my amazement, my knee complaint disappeared somehow after this decision was taken on the spot and I was able to make it to the top thus succeeding in our mission.  We got some time to even meditate outside the cave of Shri Bogarnatharji. The meditation though short, was very intense and powerful in spite of very little time that was allotted to us. It was because there were a gigantic number of people in the premises and managing that number was an issue. But we were very satisfied and pleased with whatever God had decided to give us and we all were humbled at the Grace that was showered at us in terms of enrichment and fulfilment of our spiritual goals.

 As a divine gift from the holy souls, my next meditations were very strong in power and content and I was extremely gratified by their blessings.

For the sake of convenience of new as well as the old readers, let me specify here that there should be a lineage of Gurus if you are seeking Self Realization. Certainly, Self-Realization only comes from one knower or Teacher to other recipient which we call ‘Shruti’ in Vedas. It is passed from one donor to the receiver. If you do not know your lineage or the Teacher does not have the specified lineage, you may get in touch with hoax Gurus who promise you great things but cannot deliver. Their intentions will be self-centred, your knowledge will be ill cooked or half- baked and you may be in delusion that you have attained Self Realization. In such a case, your life will be of senseless wanderings and worthless pursuits so kindly beware.

  If you do not pay homage to all the line of genuine Gurus and show your respects during your course of long spiritual voyage, your journey is incomplete and unsafe. With God’s great compassion I have been able to find the lineage of all the Gurus thus knowing for sure that indeed I am on the right path and picking up my lessons correctly.

I went to Palani with this realization to thank Shri Bogarnatharji, who gave Kriya initiation to my revered Guru His Holiness Shri Mahavatar Babaji in Katargama.  Shri Mahavatar Babaji got his Kriya in his meditations astrally under the Banyan Tree in the dense forest almost two thousand years ago. Katargama was Kartikgrama at that time. It means the village of Kartikeya, the second son of Shiva. It is today called Katargama after distortions and is in the southern part of Sri Lanka. I have visited twice this sacred spot of penance where Babaji hid himself in the forests and did Kriya and deep meditations for a few years before with God’s will he left for Badrinath in the Himalayas.

These are Bogarnatharji wise words told to me in Palani meditation on 25th Dec’13 at his cave, just a few days ago, “Remember that God has made man in his own image. You have the full power to know yourself if you do tapasya or penance and bear some hardships for your own Spirit enhancement and improvement of your mortal human nature. All the immortal saints in the astral world are aligned as one and constantly send you all some power to remove the rooted ignorance without you ever knowing about it. They are all one and they have an unceasing desire to help humanity overcome their suffering caused by their own actions. Their power lies in their knowledge of the fact that no human being will be ever completely happy and satisfied unless he knows God. Hence, they constantly send divine healing vibrations towards the Earth with their thoughts proceeding towards us and we gather them from time to time.

If we are able to attune our mortal, earthly thoughts with them, they are erased slowly in meditation and japa done with reverence towards them. Their work is to constantly heal, revive and rejuvenate the human masses in small and big degree even if it takes them a lot of time and effort and results extremely slowly to show. They will sometimes bombard your mind with extremely powerful thoughts which will break your age old solidified redundant thoughts and ideas. They will refresh your mind with a new lease of new regenerating ideas of Self renewal and enhancement towards Self Realization. You will slowly begin to know your true Self and all old bad, debauched ideas will thaw and melt away slowly thus.

Whenever you pray, tell God that you are hungry for Him. You want to become one with Him.  You love Him dearly more than anything in this constantly changing world. And that you will always be obedient towards your Spiritual Masters who are the guiding lights on this Earth and in the skies and are protecting the race from various types of corrupting elements. They are constantly reviving the Earth and helping humans to peep inside them so that they are able to know what is good for them and what they should eliminate out of their lives.”… ……(to be continued)

    GLAD to read this post on Jan 1 dear mom 🙂

    I will always remember what you have written here:
    ” If you do not pay homage to all the line of genuine Gurus and show your respects during your course of long spiritual voyage, your journey is incomplete and unsafe. ”

    I love this sentence too:
    ” No human being will be ever completely happy and satisfied unless he knows God. ”

    Its very relaxing to look at both the pics. Thank you mom ❤

    • spiritinlife says:

      Dear Shahid, I read all your comments with concentration to know which lines you have picked up although I do not always respond to them. This is the first time that it has been said on the blog that if you do not pay homage to all the line of genuine Gurus and show your respects during your course of long spiritual voyage, your journey is incomplete and unsafe. I am happy that you have highlighted this point for all to remember. They are important lines.
      The pictures are relaxing as the early morning Sun rays are gentle. I did not take any pictures this time barring a few because I wanted to relax. Somehow, found these two very appropriate ones at the nick of time and so posted them here in the afternoon. They do tell a story. Please read the post atleast three times to ingest everything.

    -Be always be obedient towards your Spiritual Masters who are the guiding lights on this Earth and in the skies and are protecting the race from various types of corrupting elements.

    Please accept my Pranam Ma and Babaji and all divine Masters. Thank you so much for your continuous guidance and working on us to lift us up from this deep slumber in spite of so much reluctance shown by us at-times.

  15. rsnmurthyyct says:

    Maa ! You are doing good job and highly commendable guidance for real Truth seekers to know thy self. Babaji and all the assended Divine Masters shower all their divine blessings to carryout the task uninterrupted ly. Myself also came to know some unknown facts about Katargama. My humble Pranams to you and shower blessings for my progress in spiritual journey.

    • spiritinlife says:

      My dear one,I do not know your name but just saw one or two articles on your blog.It will be good if you also wrote something about yourself so that I can help you in your progress on your journey.Pranam and may god bless you. Maa

    I feel I need to make tremendous efforts mom and get out of the tamas mode. Please continue watching over me, please point out and correct my mistakes so that I can move forward at a faster pace. Om Nama Shivaya ❤

    • spiritinlife says:

      True, true Shahid, laziness of mind and body is a big deterrent on this path and is not recognized by seekers. Best way to get rid of this is to make our mind agile and active by doing different types of activities, keeping check on our diet and taking up all types of challenges…..refuse nothing and accept everything that comes to you and do that task with a cheerful mind and a happy heart…. Bless you. Yours Mom
