Pilgrimage to Mahakaleshwar and Omkareshwar
After coming home from Dwarahat in September, within a gap of fourteen days, I set out to Ujjain in M.P. state to visit two places of light called Jyotirlinga. It was decided within minutes and in two days time we set off. They all are places of worship, atonement and seeking and have Shiva as the main deity in the form of Shivalinga, the symbol of primordial energy. There are 12 Jyotirlingas in India and I was fortunate to have gone to two such powerful places in two days and that too after coming back from Dwarahat which was so splendid. The other one, Omkareshwar is nearly 165 kilometers from Ujjain. We have to cross Indore first and then proceed in the interior, remote villages one after the other and reach a sleepy habitation near a serene river, Narmada. Omkareshwar is on a little height of a small mountain on the banks of Narmada and the now narrow river has to be crossed in a small boat at this point between two sets of mountains on either side. Though the quick trip got a little hectic for us but the gains and rewards are nothing in comparison to what we have received in lieu of that.
Both the places were very dynamic except that most people go to only Mahakaleshwar as it is easily reachable.
Maximum people go there to gain spiritual powers and power of various kinds including occult powers. For later, they are condemned by God and all the divine beings. People also go to ask for prosperity or relieving themselves of their mental or physical sufferings and so on.
I had no idea what was stored for me and I wished to just go and seek blessings so that I could garner more energies to do my seva, service which comes unexpectedly from any quarter when God ordains. No one is capable of serving humanity unless we receive very specific energies from those specific zones which store and bestow us with divine powers. The blog has received very high grade spiritual energies since its inception and it continues to do so regularly. At this juncture, a new thrust of energies have been activated and induced into the current new posts at regular period. As we gear up for the next ascension, some more energies of higher to highest grade will be infused consistently at the behest of God.
It is a very old temple and it has a mention in the Puranas, the old holy Hindu scriptures. Earlier it was a very humble small Shivalinga on the bank of river Kshipra in a dense forest. In medieval times, to please their public the kings added some extensions by making it a large structure. Today, the main Shivlinga is to be reached by taking a few steps down in water in the basement which is made of concrete on the bank of the river. This was such a unique experience. The cool water in feet was a pleasant surprise so refreshing to the body and mind.
People are mostly coming for fulfillment of desires and for using negative energies as I discovered in silent moments. Apart from that, I was pleased to know in my meditation in the hall just opposite the main Shivalinga that Lord Buddha came here along with so many holy men including Swami Vivekananda in modern times. After knowing this, I shut my eyes and mind as nothing mattered because I had come to such a blessed place. I wished to only take my Prasad , blessing and leave with nice memories.
In spite of hectic touring, I receive grace and encounter exclusive, immortal Astral Being
After I came back from Dwarahat, I had only taken a short lay off of two weeks in Mumbai and I had soon set out again to go to Ujjain for my next whirlwind journey.
For quite a few days, I was in a state of unbroken peace and bliss after I came home from Dwarahat meditation. It took a few days time to reorient and recondition myself in the chaotic city. On so many occasions, I had a great urge to go back to that cave and experience the divinity once more.
There was a fixed plan of writing five posts on the blog without a break after these trips. Yesterday night, after publishing seven posts which included two on Fb, I was running short of ideas and energy. I was in vain. I received no inspiration even after meditating and concentrating the whole day. Around 9.45 p.m. desperately I prayed to God to ensure time should not run out. Soon after I had finished expressing my plea, in my meditation, I envisioned something wonderful.
Meeting of Divine beings undertaken in higher regions
I saw that there was a meeting going on between a cluster of godly heads when I traveled to higher sky. They all were in a serious meeting.
In a frantic hurry, Swami Nityananda and Shaligram Swami of Ganeshpuri were going somewhere in ether and walking upwards hurriedly. I was hushed and asked to remain absolutely quiet and still and not to disturb the meditating Sage which we all saw in the far off zone. I was asked to wait till they reverted to me. I watched all this quietly and waited in curiosity as well anticipation to know what was about to unfold before me. In a few moments, Swami Shaligram reverted and said- “I and they all have been very busy and are deciding between ourselves and finalizing what should be written in next immediate post. We had lots to do you see. The Maharishi is still meditating. He is Nitya Jyot. Let us not disturb him at any cost. We will work tomorrow now.” I understood the gravity of the situation and held back myself and withheld my anxiety.
I know that we are cursed by God if we disturb somebody who is in meditation and is busy handling mammoth missions of God. I anyway asked for forgiveness from God instantly just in case by mistake or innocence, if I had entered and trespassed someone’s personal space in which he was meditating silently and was blissful in a transcendental state. I pleaded and apologized sincerely in case I had offended him.
When the precarious few minutes were over, I saw Swami again walking downwards and I could not hold myself. I took the liberty and raised a question. I was anxious I would not be able to ever reach with my mind that far off exclusive zone again and find out myself about Nitya Jyot. I instantly allowed my anxiety to diffuse.
“What is Nitya Jyot, I have not heard this before?” I asked slightly after seeing the meditating Sage in a golden halo.
“They are highly illuminated divine beings who work ceaselessly for God as well as people and live very, very far from the terrestrial zone. They have very long lives given by God. They are constantly living in God’s Light and hence given the title Nitya Jyot-Always in light. They live in Satya Lok, the land of Truth,” replied Swami.
I was very relieved to know that all was well.
I was quite drowsy, I closed my eyes. Promptly, my eyelids were filled with soft, mellow, pale yellow coloured light. I felt so warm and good and forgot the state of the physical body. Before long, I heard the auspicious sound of Om arriving immediately and I heard somebody say, “Your body has less oxygen and less space or akash and therefore you must not tire yourself more than this. You are already on the edge of crashing out and now we shall not allow this. Earlier we ignored it. The nerves if broken will take six months to repair. So rest now and I shall tell you what is to be done tomorrow.”
In a little while, I saw a very tall, thick beam of flowing, brilliant golden light falling over the Earth from very far off. Some answers to personal lingering questions also came along with this Light with exact date and time for futuristic references. I prostrated at him and went to sleep. I thought I must follow their instruction obediently and should sleep as sleep is of utmost importance in order to get started in the morning without delay.
At the daybreak, I woke up very fresh and went to the park at 6.30 am. After a short walk, I sat on a bench under a tree and open sky and closed my eyes gently. The weather was perfect and I sat relaxed. I began to do long inhalation and exhalation to inhale abundant amount of oxygen inside and immediately felt good in a few minutes. My mind was totally calm and attentive and once more I connected with the same beam of Light that I saw the previous night. I felt balminess in my body. I was side by side also getting a sense of reassurance after the appearing of Light of God filtering in that my work will not be stalled and I will continue to write uninterruptedly.
After slipping into a deep state of peace, I was able to touch a new height. In my continued long meditation there, I came to know the following new wonderful revelations-
After the Earth there are layers of sky like atmosphere, stratosphere etc. Beyond the sky there is empty Space, ether Akash. Some highly enlightened Divine Beings are located in that Space beyond the sky much, much away from the Earth. Those Divine Beings are sages who are meditating there and wish to be excluded from the humdrum of Earthly life. They exclude themselves because they wish to meditate without any hindrance and noise coming from teeming people walking on the Earth. They meditate for years and centuries and are contributing towards man’s final emancipation.
“I am Kashyap Rishi, one of the seven rishis. I am living very far off from the Earth because my desire of Earthly things has banished epochs earlier. I wish to stay away from it because all the people are so attached to Earthly objects. Come, I will show you my vision from the centre of my existence. The Earth looks so small like a small piece of stone, it is that for me.
Tell people that they are wasting their time in just being born and then dying. People only take birth and die, they are born and die, they are born again and again and so many times again. They suffer so much in their reoccurring process of birth and death.
I send out rays of my mental energies as Light on Earth to people who are striving to establish the Truth. You have experienced so much Light in the cave at Dwarahat. Earlier you could see little light and before that rays of light, sometimes even single rays. But you did not know that rays of God’s light have Truth embedded in them. Whenever you experience Light, you must wait and watch to see what message it contains for you. It does not come without a specific reason.”
Maharishi spoke in chaste Hindi, “Satya kya hai? Satya ka tatva kya hai?”
Satya hai ki ishwar hai, wo avinashi hai, wo prakash hai, wo nirakar hai, wo amar hai aur wo sada bana rahega. Us satya ko jano. Aur us Prakash mei Satya hai. Dwarahat mei jo tumne Prakash dekha usme Satya hai, jab bhi tum Prakash dekhoge usmei Satya bhi milega.”
Translation- What is Truth? What is the substance of Truth?
Truth is that God is, it is immortal, it is light, it is formless it is immortal and will never be destroyed. Know that Truth. And in that light is Truth. The Light that you saw in Dwarahat has Truth in it. Whenever you see Light, in that you shall also find Truth……”
Well, I accepted that I was still very naive as far as the science of enlightenment is concerned. I told him that I consider myself a small baby as far as they all are concerned. They all are my spiritual, sacred fathers. And I am very keen to know a lot from them as I am a new child in their cluster of very enlightened beings and wish to do more sadhana under their guidance.
