Third and concluding post does not have any questions asked by me to most revered Adi Shankaracharya like previous part.   

On the contrary, part three post is an extension of topics that I think about after something unusual happens. I think, I wonder, I contemplate. I find myself solitary. I can’t go further. Later on a fateful day, I get many replies from some unexpected source to my undying quest. I don’t ask for anything but I receive bountiful in mercy. Generous, soft breeze of Grace cascading over me kindly! 

This time it was from Adi Shankaracharya. I am buoyant since the last many days. I touched his Spirit!  

 He told me about many things 

“Adi Gurus are those who had God-Realization very long time ago. They take many lives after that. When they were born in their last incarnation, they became world teachers. I am one such World Teacher.  

I am not a grammarian, I studied the mind so well that it appears to people that I was a scholar or a strict adherent to Vedic philosophy. The fact is that I was very well versed with all Scriptures, Mathematics, Astrology, Literature, Music and Poetry. I was a traveler too. I was a multi-faceted person. I was best at meditating and I could meditate for a long spell up to ten hours without food or water. I was austere, contemplative and thought deeply. I had a good nature, I was not as serious as is made out of me. I had a good sense of humour.   

About Vivek Chudamani  

It is my favourite spiritual text because in brief it charts out the entire journey of a sadhak, seeker from start until Samadhi state, or the state of Super Consciousness is obtained and how to attain that.  It came to me as a blessing with the grace of God even before I met my Guru. I was born with the knowledge of liberation. I had earned it with my own hard penance very long time ago.


Detachment-The resilience comes from detaching the mind from the external factors and sensory stimuli. If we continuously keep away the mind from bothering us about the irritating external factors, the mind learns to obey after all. Do not tell yourself repeatedly that some things are pestering you or misbehaving with you. If that is so true, God will take care of all your problems, but do not let your mind irritate you day and night.  

 Vairagya- or renunciation is  having dispassion by vichara or contemplation towards everything which is temporal and non real after knowing its defects . Surrendering fruits of all actions is renunciation.

Chitta- It is sub conscious mind. It is called chitta in Sanskrit. ‘Yoga chitta vritti nirodha” is an important line from Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra.  

It means stilling the mind with Yoga by removing the fluctuations until it rests and comes to a state of complete tranquility. Yoga, Puranas, Vedas and Self Sacrifice for Highest Ideals are infallible ways to have command over Atma.   

Not every saint or sannyasi removes all the Maya from their innermost manas, the last level of unconscious mind. Most of them stop at sub conscious mind, chitta. Today even tamasic people have become sadhus.

 Benefits of Maun-maintaining silence   

  1.  The flow of prana becomes steady throughout body.  
  2. The senses are at rest and rejuvenated.   
  3.  The energy is centralized and coherent in the body. The body assimilates all the left over and wasteful pranic chunks scattered in the nerve channels or nadis. The non-performing tributaries of veins and nerves begin to function in an orderly manner thus boosting immunity, concentration and productivity.  
  4. The vortexes of energy centers or chakras, big as well as small, spiraling at important crossings are given enough oxygen and liberated from accumulated carbon-dioxide.  
  5. Atma unnati or progress of the Soul. It begins to first upsurge, then unfold and lastly shine.  

 Benefits of Yoga 

  1. Yoga practice endows the practitioner with longevity, endurance, immunity and deep calmness in body, mind and Spirit
  2. Subtle breath prevails in endocrine system
  3. Yoga maintains your body and makes it fit for sense control, mind control and prepares you for Samadhi.

Your good qualities make you everyone’s favourite 

You are everyone’s favourite. Be it me, Bogar, Karthik, Gorakh, Agastya, Markandey, Vishwamitra, Amara, Krishnananda, Shivananda and all others including Shri Mahavatar Babaji. The reason is you keep our assigned jobs as top most priority on your ‘to-do task-list’ every day. No other person does this. They first give priority to family and oneself first of all. After distributing time in this way, whatever time is remaining, they allot to us, if available. Our work cannot be given second or third priority because work of God is most important and should be done hastily.  

Secondly, we are extremely delighted with your comprehension abilities and speed of processing in the brain. You understand very fast, even before we finish our sentence or thought, you grasp it instantaneously. This is because of two reasons-1. Your very sharp focus and acute concentration 2. Very acute comprehension skills due to your intensely calm mind procured with daily meditations and prayers of many previous incarnations.  

Importantly, your body is very precious for all of us. Myself, Krishnananda, Gorakhanath died in unnatural conditions because there was no one to look after us or our health and well being, although we had tremendous body of work to accomplish. However, this will not be repeated in your case. We will make sure henceforth you get the best of everything- a good routine to follow daily, yoga asana practice, daily meditation, Ayurveda and regulated, structured exercise for fitness and health. Rest and sleep combined with regular contact with nature and some solitude is mandatory for you to work now or else you will not be able to stay in touch with us and write further.  

Remember me and the places that you have just visited related to my life in Kerala if you undergo any crisis pertaining to body or mind. You shall revive. 

In 2005, Shri Mahavatar Babaji invited you to Shri Badrinath- People don’t understand Babaji they only worship him.  

There was a mission underlying this invitation. He wanted you to write a few books on Yoga, mysticism and spiritual theology on his advice. He told you about it and asked you to do this task when you were going to Vyas Gufa, near Badrinath (a cave where Ved Vyasa wrote Mahabharat more than five thousand years ago). He also alerted you that you may write the books but you will be like so many scholars and intellectuals who have authored great books, theories and debates as well as ideas about God or divine things but they themselves do not understand what they have written or spoken!  

You instantly refused his proposal with a firm conviction by giving a genuine answer. He was very impressed by your simplicity and honesty. It was at that time that God changed the original plan and reviewed the situation.   

You said this to Babaji telepathically when he spoke to you-“First of all, I don’t want to write anything, I don’t think I can do that. Secondly, if ever I do so with your blessings, as such things occur with only blessings from Gurus; I will first like to come to a stage when I am in a state where I am understanding everything myself. With clarity and deep understanding, I would like to write something. It should be my knowledge gained out of own experience. It is meaningless blabbering and impressing a large crowd when I do not myself know the subject. I do not wish to be a great orator only, I want to speak with my own experience and knowledge.”  

Shri Mahavatar Babaji blessed you by giving you four pillars-Yoga, Tapa, Dharma, Satya-God union, penance, righteousness and Truth.  

Your blog is also based on these four pillars.  (The state of Super Consciousness-II) 

After this incident, God changed your map of future spiritual journey and added many new stop overs and diversions.   

You started coming to Rishikesh and began learning under Shivananda, Karthik, Bogar, me, Kashyap, Gorakhnat, Agastya, Amara and Krishnananda. And now Markandey and Vishwamitra. Your platform of preparation for highest goals was distended to unprecedented levels. You have been under one or many of these Sages unremittingly for the last more than thirteen years and you have never got one day to rest or release your tensions and frustrations. Living in this ugly and disorganized world brings dissatisfaction and disharmony in your psyche but you quickly go inward, become introverted by ignoring outside episodes and remember one of us to give you solace and peace.  

You have brought all of us in front and showcased to the world on your blog. Prior to this, we were anonymous barring me, Shivananda and Mahavatar Babaji. No one knows our true self.  To the world now, you are introducing us in the way we were. The ancient Seers were long forgotten and were hiding in the dust of time before this. 

Endowment of time 

Beating time, conquering time. Time is the rarest commodity that God has made. Time conquers and wins everyone; Time cannot be conquered unless you learn how to meditate. Time is saved if the mind does not scatter and all energies harnessed in human body and mind at optimum. Furthermore, at the highest level of Cosmic Consciousness, the Soul in the end conquers time and triumphs.   

Astral Travel-All achievements, performances and feats are easily accomplished in the God’s world if one can learn the art of Space Travel. It is attained after Samadhi is achieved and mastered. In highest Spiritual stature, God permits the use of this swiftest method of communication as time is a deterrent in the physical world. To beat Time, to save and utilize every moment to its maximum potential, Space Voyage to distant parts of the Universe is the most suitable method for achieving extra ordinary missions for welfare of Society.  

Travelling with vehicle of subtlest mind, ati sukshma mana back and forth from Earth to other orbits of Space, the accomplished Yogi is able to bring down the rarest of rare, hidden secrets and knowledge of God and his Creations from the very Enlightened Beings called Rishis or Sages.

Out of all, Vishwamitra is the most proficient in this Science.  He gave you darshan on 20th May in Manasa Foundation, Bangalore and initiated you formally in this yogic science. Henceforth, you shall perform better in it day by day in order to achieve a list of extra ordinary feats in future.  

You will write till you live with this qualification! You have beaten Time!! Vishwamitra blessed you on that special day of 10th blogging Anniversary of Spiritinlife. He vehemently said to you that you will not stop writing. Your wish was to put an end to this marathon blog on 20th May on 10th blogging anniversary. Instead, he ordered you to continue writing until the blog is three and a half times the size of its present volume!  

He blessed you profusely that day in a very pious place like Manasa, the future Shambala. We all were a witness to this great event in the morning at 11.12.am. Reason-it is once in million years that a plan and project of this impact is planned, road map laid and finally undertaken at the most auspicious time. More so, if there is certainty of its thumping success. We all wait anxiously, God waits apprehensively because it is a matter of gravity and importance when a Five Star project such as Spiritinlife and Manasa are conceptualize, born and adheres to the wish and plans of God. So much is endowed in these projects, be it time, spiritual energies and good wishes of all the worlds, the perceptible and imperceptible. The Sapt Rishis have extra ordinary patience and endurance and they will withstand all kinds of failure, opposition and hindrance. In the end they win, it is just a matter of time. It may take more than a few millions of years for them to wait, to succeed for such significant undertakings!  

People ignore you, scoff at you or even  not believe in your visions; you never want to be promoted by anyone. You are totally unaffected. This is you. This is your hidden strength and basic nature from birth and hence all of us chose you to head start Spiritinlife and Nav Jeevan Jyoti Foundation projects. In future, Spiritinlife and Manasa will collaborate and achieve unheard accomplishments in the field of Spiritual Sciences, research, meditation, group learning and innovation with the blessings of God and Sages of yore. They both are blessed and under the protection of all the saints, rishis and God Almighty.  

It takes millions of years for conceptualizing, inception, planning and waiting for such kinds of far reaching, painstaking endeavours on Earth. The seeds are sown with the Sankalpa of God, wish of God. At most appropriate time, the sapling grows!

You must stay very peaceful and even minded all the time in spite of most disturbing situations. This is real maun or silence.  


Live in Shanti, Maun, Anandapeace, silence and ecstasy. 

Have Divine Ego- I am Atma, I am free, I am pure Consciousness, I am eternal…..*Nirvanashatkam

The Atmashatkam (आत्मषट्कम्ātmaṣaṭkam), also known as Nirvanashatkam (निर्वाणषट्कम्, Nirvāṇaṣaṭkam),[1] is a composition consisting of 6 fold śloka (and hence the name Ṣaṭ-ka to mean six-fold) written by the Hindu philosopher Adi Shankara summarizing the basic teachings of Advaita Vedanta, or the Hindu teachings of non-dualism. It was written around 788-820 BCE.

It is said that when Ādi Śaṅkara was a young boy of eight and wandering near River Narmada, seeking to find his guru, he encountered the seer Govinda Bhagavatpada who asked him, “Who are you?”. The boy answered with these stanzas, which are known as “Nirvāṇa Ṣaṭkam” or Ātma Ṣaṭkam”. Swami Govindapada accepted Ādi Śaṅkara as his disciple. The verses are said to be valued to progress in contemplation practices that lead to Self-Realization.

“Nirvāṇa” is complete equanimity, peace, tranquility, freedom and joy. “Ātma” is the True Self.

                                                    Adi Shankaracharya

Kalady, his birth place in Kerala, India


Preface-We continue with our last thought and that is my conversations with Adi Shankaracharya, the 8th century philosopher, world teacher and a great scholar of Vedanta philosophy. After my visit to Kalady in Kerala on 4th May, 2018, a series of dialogue took place in my meditation. 

However, this dialogue was unique. It was wide apart from previous ones that I had before with the blessed souls like Swami Shivananda, Bogarnathar, Swami Kartikeyan, Agastya Maharishi and Guru Gorakhnath during the end of 2014 and through 2015. These articles were composed after I got the knowledge from the above mentioned Sadgurus by either the direct or indirect transference method. 

To recall what is meant by these two methods, I am quoting from an older post- My conversations with Swami Shivanandji on an auspicious day-III 

“There are two ways I can transmit my thoughts to you-directly and indirectly. Direct transference is when I and you both are connected in mind and sitting somewhere focused arousing our mental connections through a travel passage and using that conduit to send and receive messages. Recall the experience of ‘The Hidden Light’ and many more such experiences which you have documented as poems on FB recently. I have been speaking like this to you for many months now.

There is another very advanced method of transference of knowledge and message. It is called indirect mental transference. You have reached a very advanced state of mental development through my guidance and constant vigilance. Your mind space is full of only useful information and your memory is embedded with only experiences of divine contact. I can without inviting you to connect with me, send information by sending that data through ether and I can save and store my data in your brain like you do on cloud computer. Your mind is my drop box. You can always access that information when you meditate singly whenever you like and have time to do so.

When you were sleeping in the early hours of the morning, I was meditating. I conveyed my thoughts or sankalps to you mentally and wished that you receive each and every thought of mine when you wake up in the morning. So, when you sat quietly in silence and brought your mind inwards, you received the thoughts which I had transmitted to you and you heard me speaking to you in meditation through your intuitive powers of the mind.”


You may like to know the following- 

How is this dialogue with Adi Shankaracharya unique? 

It is unique because it was procured through astral travel. 

What is astral travel? 

It is a mode of travel used by the subtlest mana or mind. 

What is the procedure? 

Special, my very special experience 

To tell you about the procedure of astral travel in detail, it is mandatory that I narrate the unseen workings that took place quietly in Kalady on 4th, and on 7th and 8th of May after I came home from Kalady. My brief narration will be self-explanatory to answer your natural curiosities. 

I have already mentioned right in the beginning that my visit to the birth place of Adi Shankaracharya was most unexpected and unplanned. It was a dream come true. Abundant ripples of joy were dancing in the sea of tranquility in this contained heart once the news broke!  

In Kalady temple, every moment was absorbed with sincere gratitude and thankfulness. As I moved step by step throughout the whole place, I was astir and simmering with a deep sense of loss. This kind of loss is very prevalent when I visit the holy places of all my Gurus. I experience something different and curve into a state of deprivation and a sense of deep loss. I without fail every time, yearn to be in their holy presence and regret having lost the opportunity to have spent my life as their devout disciple with these Holy Souls when they incarnated! 

I am reticent; I am without any murmurs and vocalization about my great sense of loss. It has happened in all the sacred places of special significance connected with my line of several Gurus. I wanted to study in their blessed presence and occupy a place in their holy feet! I wanted to earn their blessings by my eternal loyalty towards them. With my endurance and fortitude in my life-long strife to actualize all their precious gems which they would have given to me to purify my Soul and merge myself with their own eternal brilliant light, I wanted to earn their blessings! My heart weeps while I say this or when I write my concealed, inner most yearnings for the world to know it now! 

I travel astrally to Adi Shankaracharya! 

The sacred knowledge that is saved and documented here was not earned by direct or indirect method. Instead it was achieved by another method of bringing down the ancient Seer’s treasures down to Earth from other far off territories or brahamaand or Universe. And that unique method adopted was through astral travel. 

Fully comprehending my submerged feelings in Kalady when I, having felt his acute absence when I could not find Adi Shankaracharya in the physical form, he adopted a method which fulfilled my persisting longing. He called me to his resting place, somewhere very far in the uppermost skies in Space. I travelled to him in his sphere of existence after having left my physical body on the Earth temporarily. I did this a few times in the day as well as night after I came back from his birth place. 

What then is the difference between earlier adopted methods and this of thought transference? 

In the earlier described methods, the recipient and the sender both are located far away and are separated by physical distance. One relays mental thoughts situated at a distance and the receiver receives them either directly or indirectly by thought transference. 

Manas or mana is made up of light of God. It has three segments or parts. The lightest part is at the base and more filled with rays of Cosmic Light after it has been purified thoroughly. When the manas is prepared and completely devoid of worldly thoughts, it can travel at a frightening speed to any destination in the Universe with the will of the traveller. 

Sushumna nadi or the central nadi or nerve in the spinal cord plays the dominant role in this procedure and God’s will is the initiator. 

In astral travel, a part of the subtlest manas or mind releases after detaching itself and travels through akash or etherThis part is called ati sukshma mana or extremely subtle or benign mind. It is composed of ati sukshma prana or very subtle life force. It is beyond space and time and has no limitation of gravitational pull or any other physical force pulling it back to earth. 

When the call is placed or an invite is sent by one Divine being to some other being located at a far-off distance, the action starts. This method can be applied at the highest level of mode of communication since no information is lost. In the previous two types of methods, when the recipient wakes up suddenly to the normal behaviour of the world after meditation, there is a possibility of some information being lost unless the receiver is residing in a very quiet and serene atmosphere devoid of high decibels of sound. The latter is more reliable, efficient method of exchange of ideas and thoughts. It comes with continuous practice and blessings from the Holy Sadgurus at the behest of God. 

When the sender or starter of this mode of communication (Adi Shankaracharya in this case) does not wish to stoop low on a territory which is infested with chaos, noise and disharmony, the secondary party or receiver (myself in this case) accepts the invitation of the primary party or sender. As both are free of discordant vibrations, an agreement is reached. Assimilation of each other’s energies is the first point to begin with. Both are willing and eager to connect and exchange their vital energies called prana or life force. At this stage, there is no room for ego, only respect and goodwill exist. 

I am extremely blessed and fortunate to have been chosen by Adi Shankaracharya when I was taken to such blessed realms of Spiritual Consciousness. A few times I traveled to the astral abode of Adi Shankaracharya as I slipped into deepest levels of my mind only after I switched off links with the prevailing physical world around me. Our meeting and conversation took place miles away from the Earth and so much was exchanged in such less time! 

With my physical body left behind, I was free of all my body limitations and my mind could speed dizzily and be in presence of his astral holy body! I was completely soaked in deepest peace ever and was in a land where the sense of time and compartments of hour, minute or fractions were wiped out. It was a land of timelessness and continued infinity.

I had touched the sphere of a region which is beyond anant or eternity. I reached anant ke pare or a place beyond eternity. 

This experience resembled my earlier astral meetings with Swami Kartikeyan, Bogarnathar, Guru Gorakhnath, Agastya Maharishi and even Swami Shivananda. I have undergone elementary level astral voyages with them after I returned from Sri Lanka in 2016. The difference was only in duration in time. My meeting with Adi Shankaracharya was longer, could be recounted, recalled and remembered too well as by now I had some practice and experience of going beyond eternity. Prior to this, I was getting acclimatized to such benign experiences and was not able to go over my subtlest experiences because of lack of practice and high decibels surrounding me. In this special meeting with Adi Shankaracharya, however, I was aware of the prevalent deepest peace and tranquility which he emitted and I stretched my time consciously as far as I could have. What I could not attain today in this time of my life in Kalady, I was able to achieve that through astral travel to the residing territory of Adi Shankaracharya. 


Dialogue between two of us 

Me- “Who are you?” 

Adi Shankaracharya-“I am a very ancient, renowned philosopher, intellectual and Self Realized being. My lives have been difficult and full of penance. I practiced Yoga and scriptures in more than hundred lives. I perfected and mastered Atma Gyan many lives before I became Shankaracharya of India. I was always born and reincarnated only in India, the most pious land of Sages. 

I enjoyed solitude, maun (silence) and brahmacharya (celibacy) as that creates time to contemplate and realize. In many incarnations, I have served my Holy teachers; besides that I have done tremendous seva (service)and daan(charity)in all my lives.” 

Me-“Why did you take a birth this time?” 

Adi Shankaracharya-“I came into this world with a fixed mission and limited time. Work was soon accomplished; the purpose was lofty.

Have very lofty purpose of living your life. 

God made me an instrument of a spiritual revolution and reformation in the Hindu Dharma because it was my own will or sankalpa to achieve this feat single-handedly and without taking a break. I have mastered my mind and am adept in resolving my thought or mind power to do revolutionary things in society. Reason- 

Sankalpa (resolution) when made in the right direction and made with very good intentions can help mankind for many centuries. In this waypeople draw inspiration to make their lives enriched and purposeful.

You are doing the same. You are a very beautiful soul full of radiance, joy and kindness. Your work is appreciated in the astral sky and the essence and positive energy is consumed mentally by the meditating saints. The embedded powerful thoughts of various Rishis provide mental power in the other worlds also since the spiritual powers are continuously being released. Your blog is beyond words, time and space. People are not capable of extracting the kernel, or the essential light and energy embedded in the pages. 

The Seers or Rishis have accumulated and deposited some of their finest mental powers in the drop box called Spiritinlife. Their years of penance can be known by masses through these articles documented for posterity. God has spoken through these Sages and has wished that the world must awaken to these timeless realities. 

Today, I shall empower you, enlighten you and take you up in never before heights from where you shall broadcast my innermost realizations and earnings of thousands of years of penance. 

You are a rare person, you are now invincible because of your immeasurable punyas  (merits) which you have earned each day by serving humanity. 

Through you, God will reveal its own secrets, facts and hidden realities.” 

Me-“But Swamiji, this is so unplanned and unexpected.” 

Adi Shankaracharya– Today as you never anticipated that I shall speak to you and give personal guidance, I was equally unprepared when I began writing Bhaj Govindam. But it took me more than 15 months to finish it because in those days life was too hard to live and penance was stricter and more regimented. It was also impossible to find shelter and food since every place that was offered was not pious. So, I made an excuse and left the place. I was unusually selective. I lived in intense heat, cold and rain.  

I did not take samadhi at the age of thirty-two. I died of cold and rain and lack of food and water. I caught cold through my feet when I visited Shri Kedarnath Dham.  As food was not easily available at that time, I succumbed to acute lack of energy and heat in the body. Nonetheless, my work was accomplished. 

Today, it is absolutely reverse. There is excess of food, pollution, noise and restlessness in people and resources are so easily available in all places, day and night. Unfortunately, people are not inclined towards refraining, detaching and releasing their ego and desires. Time can be conquered in this era as life has become super-fast and there are fastest means of communications. The media and fast communications should be used for the betterment of the world as a whole and personally people should save time by achieving more results in a fast world and for attaining God in least time.

My writings are immortal. On the scale of five, they earn five stars and your writings four stars. It is because during my incarnations, life was slow, people innocent and the world and life was full of pranic energy. The atmosphere was serene most of the time. With you it is contrary. There is no peacefulness, only crowded places, noise, chaos and congestion everywhere. But soon your writings will also be of five stars. I will make it happen. They will be appreciated world wide and remembered for its uniqueness and lucidity as well as exceptional essence.” 

Me- “Guruvar, please advise me on what should be the conduct of a disciple. 

Adi Shankaracharya– Atma is Sakshi, a witness. It observes you in every second and moment. Guru and Atma are one. Atma cannot be cheated or won by cleverness but can be won easily with innocence, kindness and service with the continuous guidance of an Atma Gyani Guru. 

Atma Gyani Guru is attained with great difficulty once in millions of years. 

The Guru cannot be deceived by any Maya or pralobhan (lure). He can be enticed by purity and a heart freed of all desires.  

God and Guru are one. God speaks to Guru and Guru dispenses. Guru and shishya can become one when the Maya is absolved from the inner most layers of mind of shishya. 

Me-“What is the real goal of life?”  

Adi Shankaracharya- “Very few people realize the real goal in life because their desires drive them into endless lives. 

When the jeevatma cuts through all the layers of Mana, the Atma shines. Know your Atma. 

Bhaj Govindam, my great work and composition, was composed with this aim. Revise the lessons advocated by me in this great composition through musical and lyrical renditions. It was a very spontaneous act when I was at a Ghat (bank) of Ganga river in Kashi. I looked around and saw people in so much suffering in body and mind. However, they did not seem to have thought about its relief or remedy and elimination. After that I met an aged scholar in Kashi and seeing him spontaneously, I began preaching him. I told him to sing glories of Lord and not waste precious time in debates and intellectual exchanges.” 

Me- “How to remove the thin layer of delusion?” 

Adi Shankaracharya- “Antahkaran or inner most layer is where most sadhaks stop and do not work harder to remove the subtlest ego. Many devotees, saints cannot even differentiate the difference of ego and God’s will.  

How to remove that thin layer of delusion you have asked. 

By various regular methods of practices like satsanga(holy company) keeping maun, (silence) fasting, deliberation, detachment and being desire free. 

Me- “What is Maya?” 

Adi Shankaracharya- “There is no Maya, mana is Maya. 

There is no poverty, your mind is poor. 

There is no dukh (misery) or unhappiness. Your mind is away from the joy and Ananda (ecstasy) of Atma, achieve that. 

You are timeless, priceless and endless. Love your Atma and Guru.” 

Me- “I see the world in a state of restlessness and uneasiness relentlessly.” 

Adi Shankaracharya- “In today’s world all people are entangled in vasanas, (lust) moh, (attachment) maya (delusion and confusion) and have no discrimination because their indriya (senses) comfort them. Their mind has no power over the indriya and they drift from one life to another like a reckless boat.” 

Me- “Why are we born?” 

Adi Shankaracharya- “The purpose of this life is to know the nature of Atma, avinashi Atma and remove the delusion of Anatma or temporal. Both are interwoven like fire and heat. We feel the heat and see the fire. Atma is to be experienced with the help of a Guru and the Maya is to be disregarded with vivek (wisdom) and vichara (contemplation). All the miseries are invited by the ignorant men. They weep, they suffer and they reincarnate. Only the fortunate ones take the refuge of a Guru and take Mukti (salvation) from this endless wandering and weeping. Atma should be known to avoid further suffering.

Me- “Swamiji in times such as this one, I cannot even utter words of thanks as I have fallen silent. Words seem noise in your presence. There is so much shanti and shunya in your holy company.” 

Adi Shankaracharya- “I bless you my child! As a child you have been interested in Divine knowledge through vivek, vairagya in solitary moments.  

You are my favourite because from a young age you have been most inclined to know and realize the subtle realities of eternal truths with vairagya, vichara. You have studied my Vivek Chudamani and wish to go deeper into its meaning and inner hidden perceptions if time permits. You have great reverence for all my works and realize its importance. 

You have studied well and contemplated upon what is-vasanaichchamoha and Atma. 

You have completed your task of releasing all vasanasichcha in very limited time. Your clean anatahkaran (inner most mind or mana) is your biggest asset in deriving knowledge from the very illuminated Souls. You have taken minimum time to purify yourself as vairagya (detachment) was behind your intellect giving you light to navigate. Your investigative and interrogative nature made this impossible job possible. You have read the holy scriptures in many lives. You have also read my Vivek Chudamani many times. 

I have come to you astrally when you were a small girl and imparted the essence of VivekChudamani in your sub conscious mind. When you formally read VivekChudamaniin your youth, you understood the meaning or bhavartha, instantly because of my transference or relay of the mental power in the past.

Today you are Muktjeevan mukta, free from all impurities of Maya. You are like a Paras, Touch stone transforming stones to gold with the benefaction, attribution and contributions of many other holy souls at the behest of God’s approval. 

About significance of holy scriptures- 

I will help only those who will understand and study two of my best writings-Vivek Chudamani and Guru Paduka Strotam. Without realizing and acknowledging the compassion, benediction and contribution of Divine Gurus, you will never be able to play your role of a true seeker. 

Conclusion-Spiritual knowledge is the highest knowledge. Knowing Atma is highest attainment. Serving brothers and sisters is the highest worship. Silence is most fruitful for inner calmness and steadiness in Atma. Satsanga is the holiest place for purification and Vedantic knowledge is quickest in freeing the Soul from its dense and gross matter of mind. 

Atma is free, Atma is Universal. Atma is unchangeable. Atma is eternal. Atma is shashwat (eternal)and nirakaar (without any shape). 

Atma is regained with the grace, blessing and unconditional love for Sadguru in every life.

Notes and references

Adhi, VyadhiUpadhi,* he uttered unexpectedly and restarted and picked up our silent, uninterrupted conversations once again. 

I had read this in scriptures many years back and was taken aback, what is the context here and will I be able to do justice in my writing, I thought to myself. 

“Are caused by your own actions, he said and create suffering in mental, physical, and emotional bodies respectively. 

Taapatraya Vinaashaya– your Guru will destroy your three heat or sufferings and they are caused by none other than you.” 

From earlier post-https://spiritinlife.blog/2016/10/02/my-most-unexpected-communique-with-guru-gorakh-nath-i/ 


**shamadamauparatititikshaashraddhaasamaadhaana , 

Six-fold virtues to be adopted by the aspirant on the path of knowledge of Self-Realization 

Shama= calmness of mind 

 Dama = control of five karma indriya or organs of actions  

uparati = self-withdrawal by turning the mind from objects of enjoyment 

titikshaa = the power of endurance 

shraddhaa = unshakable faith in existence of God, Gurus and the scriptures. 

samaadhaana= A sense of well-being and blessedness after surrendering to the divine Guru. A desire for God is afire if these virtues are followed and practiced by the seeker. 

For deep study-

10th Spiritinlife Blogging Anniversary on 20th May-On the Eve of this auspicious day, it is my great fortune to enter a new post and I have no words to express my joy when I prepare this new post. I am quiescent! First of all, it is hard to maintain a blog for long and to maintain a regular pace is another challenge. The reason for halting however was conscious. I took some time off to explain my previously written somber and difficult posts in discourses-a series of my conversations with ancient Seers of India. In the past since December of 2014, a regular series of my dialogues with ancient seers of India beginning with Swami Shivananda of Rishikesh to the Param Gurus of Shri Mahavatar Babaji-Agastya Maharishi, Bogarnathar, Swami Kartikeyan were recorded.  

Siddha Guru Gorakhnath was very kind to enlighten me and take me to new heights. Enlightenment came also through the very reclusive Maharishi Kashyapa. The shining stars in the galaxy! 

However, they were not composed as one to one conversations. This post is in continuation with the series of my conversations with the ancient Seers of India during my exclusive meditations. I never foresaw such a thing happening to me ever. Nonetheless with God’s immense grace, I was able to document on this blog those heavenly moments and my divine conversations in my meditation. With the same sense of amazement and joy, I again take to writing my one more joyful and exclusive write up. And that was my communication with Adi Shankaracharya a few days back. 

I had never anticipated that I would witness a day in my life as a meditator when Adi Shankaracharya would appear to me and connect with my mind telepathically. He seems so far away in the heavenly sky. Yet he is permanently etched in my memories when I, as a student heard Bhaj Govindam authored by him. I also remember the soul touching narration of his Vedant philosophy through these verses by one of the modern -day philosophers. Those rich verses and the grave meaning are still embedded in my psyche.  

God can plan our vital life events in the most bizarre and unexpected manner; they can impact us tremendously. This was one such episode without any doubt. 

How did it emerge? How did it unfold so mysteriously? 

Spiritinlife Annual Meet was announced this year to be held in the beginning of May, 2018 in Kerala to celebrate the tenth blogging Anniversary of Spiritinlife.  

We also planned to visit Guruvayoor temple dedicated to Lord Krishna with some devotees. 

Visiting Kalady, the birth place of Adi Shankaracharya, most unplanned and spontaneous  

On the airport as I was embarking on our journey, I most unexpectedly met someone whom I do not know but is known to my relative. He curiously asked me the purpose of going to Kochi. After knowing the reason, he vehemently insisted that we visit Kalady, the birth place of Adi Shankaracharya only 7 kilometers from the airport!! It was never in our itinerary as we had planned something else. 

I could see God’s presence in the words of that stranger who crossed my path that fateful day.  Kalady was most unplanned and spontaneous and was accommodated in the list in the last few minutes. I comprehended that God was laying the foundation of a big plan and I must just be a quiet seer. I let go of everything in order to witness the will of God markedly. 

On the afternnoon of 4th May 2018, I visited the very serene and spiritually charged birth place of Adi Shankaracharya and sat on that holy sanctum for some time to meditate. I felt too grateful towards God and all the Seers and saints to have ordained such a jubilant day in my life. Words are too small and ineffective to express the extreme thankfulness a devotee offers to God and his appointed sons of God, called Gurus on days like this one… 

Our host in Kerala was similarly very keen that we visit some other holy places of interior Kerala where Adi Shankaracharya did penance. I had not accepted the proposal as we had very little time at our disposal.  But somehow the proposal kept coming back through our host.  Until I understood that another will of God was nudging me, urging me with acute serenity, to accept the auspicious offer; the offer kept reappearing. Ultimately, I accepted the offer with utmost gratitude and felt exclusively blessed for doing so.

On 5th of May, after visiting Guruvayoor temple, I was able to abide by the hidden will of God and we visited those three places connected with life of Adi Shankaracharya. 

They were- 

  1. KannenkaavuMookuthala Bhagavati Temple, Changaramkulam. This is the temple of Parashakti /Bhadrakali 
  2. Kheezekaavubhagavati- Lakshmi 
  3. MelekaavuBhagavati – Saraswati 

When I returned home, my meditation was very lively and powerful and I could see the difference. The silent force awaiting to be discharged was no surprise at all, it was awaited!

                Swami Shivananda

Commentary– A long in-house training and rehabilitation Workshop cum Discourse was held in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand on above mentioned three days when a very descriptive and narrative post titled After effects of meditation with all three parts was undertaken.  

Indepth analysis and finer points of the formation, behaviour and reformation of mind and lastly its respite and salvation were disclosed and solutions given on how to bring back the mind to its original state of super consciousness. 

In this post, Swami Shivananda imparted stellar knowledge to me through mind transfer or telepathy during dynamic meditation and revealed its many secrets. That same post was interpreted with an audience in Rishikesh in March of 2018.

Objective and highlights of this Discourse-So far there have been three long in-house discourses in Rishikesh starting from 10th November, 2016 to 25th March, 2018. In this order, three posts were taken up-that of Guru Gorakh Nath, Bogarnathar and Swami Shivananda. And titles correspondingly were-Augment of a New Era, How can you find God in this life? and After effects of meditation. 

In my speech, I highlighted the common thread embedded in all these posts. The three sages have stressed upon – 

-The method of Self Realization and enlightenment adopted in Spiritinlife Open University is Jyoti Marg 


-The nature of mind; how to regain the control of mind and bring it back under our own control to manifest Light of God within. 

-How humans are trapped in the quagmire of Maya and why and how they should retrieve themselves by many methods from this predicament with the grace and kindness of a realized Guru.

Examples. Quoting from Augment of a New Era – 

‘Jyoti Marg or ‘Pathway of Light’ is your natural method which even the ancient seers adopted and mastered. 

The mind can become so powerful one day by it if body, mind and Spirit are balanced most perfectly. 

The mind can travel faster than Light someday if this method is adopted and mastered over many lives, Light cannot be the obstruction at all. 

In place of Light of God, what remains is just God and you can touch God instantaneously and directly in no time. 

‘Jyoti Marg’ or ‘Pathway of light’ has been mastered by particular few and is used for instant messaging and passing on important information and energy. 

God’s highest grace is this where we do not depend on any other mode of communication and we can stay always in His Grace like this. 


Guru Gorakh Nath- “Man is blind, man is greedy, man is very selfish, man is not humble and man is not sympathetic by nature.

This is because man does not know and recall that it was God first and then this whole show on Earth!

The temporariness of this ever changing world is very difficult to catch, the delusive powers of God are very astute.

The mirage not possible to overcome, the will of God impossible to tell and the mind of man incredible to win and keep in place.

Time is impossible to sense and predict, past of long human history cannot be peeped into and tapped at all.

Nature cannot be controlled at man’s wish and command, life span of humans cannot be determined at all.

And from After effects of meditation- 

Why did you take this birth? Did you ask yourself ever once?

What is the purpose of your stay here, did you find out until now?

Where will you go from here, do you have any idea about this matter?

What will become of you once you die and live in the upper limits of sky?


Calmness of breath and stillness of mind is the secret to avoid all wrongdoings and bungling. 

Years after years and lives after lives, the mind has not been kept in control and rein. 

No time was given to read the mind, speak to one’s own conscience and wait till it speaks to you in return.  


So, we must meditate more to store only useful, compassionate, constructive, useful and beneficial thoughts and ideals. 

If we meditate more, the body receives more energy from the Cosmic Consciousness which can be stored in the cells of the entire body. 

The brain cells can grow at an unanticipated fashion and rate if we segregate and organize the useful and useless knowledge and information. 

New benign cells are needed and we must make them grow in our upper brain to receive the light and rays of Cosmic Consciousness. 


Quotes from -How can you find God in this life? 

If you finish the last streak of resistance of the mind when it refuses to bend, you will arrive at a final stage when all cells are sparking. 

The matter becomes Spirit and Spirit is life, consciousness, awareness and illumination that never ends. 

The cells bubble with warmth, energy, effervescence, knowledge and massive life force and current. 

Each cell and compartment begin to emit the light of God through carrying out each action as only God’s will! 

 This is also called ‘Chetna’ or ‘Prakash’ and it is achieved with many lives’ penance and devotion. 

It never dwindles or reduces, on the contrary it increases as the recipient stays in God communion continually. 

The cells are always sparking as God’s rays are continuously alighting to every nook and corner of the being. 


However, this state of awareness is not for all as no one has practiced God union for a very prolonged period in countless incarnations. 

Their focus keeps shifting from one topic to another and the mind is forever dwelling in subjects related to all that is impermanent. 

The mind or mana keeps rotating in its three worlds or states; very rarely peaceful and mum. 

The being revolves in gross, subtle or causal bodies-sthoolsukshma and kaaran shareer. 


If you do not know what is mana, how it is formed, how it behaves, how can it become more intangible and communicative towards the Unseen? 

You will always be roaming like a senseless being in three spheres or shareer with your present states of mind. 

The pliable three states of the ever-changing 

How is the mind formed? How should we look after our precious and impressionable mind? 

How not to age or degenerate? How to preserve the longevity of the well-structured and advanced mind? 

How to organize the mind to avoid losing its memory and functionality? 

How to avoid the disturbing or destructive forces which reduce your power? 


 The pliable mind is very hard to stop and needs years of steady practice and inner silent revolution. 

The mind or mana becomes placid or faint when it pertains to only peerless Spirit which sometimes is called Parmeshwar or Atma 


The mana can be in three stages- the state of being in the physical world called sthool or physical. 

It can next go a bit inside and enter sukshma or feeling, perceiving state and lastly it can go to its foundation- the kaaran or ego state-the ‘I am’ state. 

Beyond these three states is shunya or emptiness or void where one meets God in light, peace and knowledge. 

Since this topic is very hard to grasp for all, let me now elaborate for you further although speaking for so long is a tedious job! 


Top is termed as conscious mind or mana, middle sub conscious and lower is the unconscious. 

Everything that we think, wonder, do, act or observe is captured as a movie and printed in the various levels of mana. 

Together it is a single unit and the printing on the surface is happening every moment to micro minute or second. 


How is the mind formed? How should we look after our precious and impressionable mind? 

How not to age or degenerate? How to preserve the longevity of the well-structured and advanced mind? 

How to organize the mind to avoid losing its memory and functionality? 

How to avoid the disturbing or destructive forces which reduce your power? 


You must lead a very disciplined and austere life and finish all your social obligations to create time and space in your brain. 

You will never again do any unsophisticated action and will always practice God union and communication. 

You must use your senses only as doors or windows to receive outside information and never to indulge!

After effects of Meditation I, II, and III – Swami Sivananda. 

Sadhana: We are following the path of Jyoti marg i.e. Pathway to light.  At later stage Sadhana transcend to stage beyond light.  Beyond light only Braham exist.

We are being prepared for Satyug.  Our Great Masters communicates through thought power.  The method could be either instant thought transference mind to mind connect over chord made of astral light or drop box approach where message can come at time including during sleep but can be assessed when desired. Both these modes of communication are possible only with having higher state of mind and Guru’s grace.

Our Sadhana is “Antarman ki Sadhana” which don’t involve external Sadhana. This is ancient method of Sadhana. We come with heavy baggage of past life karma. Our real test is to trust and follow whatever our Guru’s says wholeheartedly without questioning or doubting it.

Importance of Spiritual places -Going to spiritually charged place accelerates our spiritual growth and cleanse our mind.  Our Masters are helping us to go to these highly vibrant places to absorb spiritual energies which not only lightens our baggage but also put us in accelerated path of self-realization. Period till March-2019 is very auspicious and we should utilize it to max.

What is Mind– Our Mind or Manas (not physical mind) can be divided into three layers. Each level can be further sub-divided into three levels or layers. We are diverse group of people where everyone is unique and are at different state of Consciousness level.  Those who went to Katargama had undergone deep cleansing at upper Sub-consciousness layer and now are going through middle or lower level of Sub-consciousness mind layer cleansing.


Swami Ji was compassionate being, a great Karma yogi and one who had dedicated his entire life for benefit of Mankind and to the service of beloved lord. He gave this knowledge to Ma through mental thought transference. Please know that all knowledge comes from God.  Swami has given this knowledge with great humility to Ma and now Ma has pass this knowledge to us again with great humility. We need to be humble and accept this knowledge with reverence and humility.

-We are living with restless Mind and engaged with unending desires. Meditation helps us calming the mind.  Real process of purification starts when one’s mind is in rest/Maun/calm.  This sacred Knowledge given by Swami ji, once absorbed will act by its own and purify us.

-Fear or worry is Tamas. It means you have forgotten that there is God. Give your best efforts but learn to Trust your destiny.  Be quiet, calm and contended. Please understand that your external world /environment is projection of your inner world or environment.

 – We can create new Pathway, re-wire our brain. We must contemplate, do maun and remove deep patterns or latent tendencies engraved in our mind.

– By putting efforts, one can change his/her destiny. Please do Darun (extreme) efforts. Mukti is not easy. One has to put everything on stake.

– Negative vibrations:  One needs to observant. If it is coming internally stop it. If it is coming from externally, protect yourself. God has given you wisdom. Use it and protect you self. Don’t be Tamsik, saying it is God’s will. Give your best efforts.

 -Our Mind has God’s light. God’s light is covered by dense particle of our bad deeds done in numerous past life.  Whenever we do wrong actions, we get dark mark.  over time the dark cloud of bad deeds hides the light of God.  All this takes out our ability to discriminate between right and wrong actions. One needs to do pious actions as directed by Guru. Once layer of darkness gets removed one by one then that space will starts getting filled by light of the god and slowly, we start intuiting. Intuition comes from power of Atma.

-Whatever activity we do, we should do it with full concentration but our actions shouldn’t be born out of our ego.  Source of our ego is delusion. Know that in a minute body can perish. It is not worth to waste our life in Trivia.  We should positivize ourselves and shouldn’t harbor negative thoughts. Cultivate good and positive thoughts. Know that Thoughts never dies, and they get recoded in Akashik records. Be observant, whatever comes at surface, see it objectively.  On negative thoughts, start doing opposite of negative thoughts to overcome them.

-Our Prana and Mana are inter-related. If our Mind is still, our breath automatically become calm and vice versa.  With agitated mind we are prone to make errors. We need to keep our mind calm. At our current state of mind, meditation is an action. Meditation makes us calm. Only in calmness we can know the right action. Please know that only a healthy body and healthy mind can perceive God. Once our Mind is restful our body starts to cooperates and both body and Mind gets in perfect harmonization.

-A great yogi’s mind is very neatly arranged. We have to arrange our mind like properly kept items in a cupboard. Meditation and right actions helps in developing that.  Please take decisions only in calm state. Postpone your decision’s if you have restless mind.

-Out Atma is part of God.  Nothing is lighter than Atma. Atma is perfect. Knowing Atma is being perfection. A Yogi will do all tasks with excellence. We should always learn new skills, build perfection, put your best efforts to achieve excellence. Work harder than world and achieve. Life is an opportunity, world is a stage for soul to manifest excellence. Don’t be mediocre. Raise your bar. Don’t worry about not being appreciated by the world. Be happy and motivated. If you are not happy, you can’t be creative. Be like dancing peacock who dance anywhere without worrying about world’s appreciation. Know that the biggest Joy is in satisfying our creative urges. Have highest aspirations. All our beloved great masters are saying same thing. We just to read all the posts and contemplate to connect the dots.

 I bow down to my Guru Ma, Swami Sivananda and all our beloved divine masters for their kind blessing and grace without which nothing could have been possible.  Gratitude.

My pranaams to you Ma,

I have just penned down a few of my learnings from the Rishikesh discourse

Ma  took us to Rishikesh on a remarkable  journey inwards with the post “After effects of Meditation I II III” by Swami Shivanandji.

Ma revealed to us that we are following the JYOTI MARG which the ancient seers also followed . This practice involves more of inner sadhana than outer. (Mann ki sadhana). It means direct contact with God through light.
This particular post is a direct transference by Swamiji to Ma.

Swami Shivanandji has explained the characteristics of our mind in detail.

Q).What are the characteristics of our mind?
Answer: 1) All creation made by God including our mind has the tendency of expansion. Apart from expansion, the mind also has a tendency to flow downwards and outwards.

2) Our mind is like a jungle because it has not been cultivated. All kinds of thoughts infest it.

3) Bad actions cause marks on our soul and over many lifetimes become dense like a dark cloud. God’s light remains covered beneath these dark layers.

4) An agitated mind is prone to making errors. Then grooves are formed and we repeat patterns.

Q)How to control the mind?

A) 1. We should start by doing good deeds. Even if we don’t like, we must do good on purpose.

2) We must meditate, do naam japa and contemplate on God.

3) Do rigorous efforts ( Darunya Prayatna) for upliftment. We need to use our power of will.

4) Keep maun for few hours daily. Be adaptable n accommodating and have very high aspirations. Efforts or Purusharth can change destinies.

Q 2. What will happen when we control our mind?

A) 1) When the mind is kept in check, it gets lot of power.

2) Slowly when the chattering stops, we start having better health.

3) When we become lighter, we start intuiting. We intuit because the dense layers are removed, a space is created and Rays of God’s light come in.

4) Mind, body and soul all align together and there is complete harmony.

5) In this harmonious state when we live with the will of God, we connect with universal consciousness.

6) We can divinize each and every cell of our body at a very advanced stage.

Ma also gave us many practical tips to be used for our upliftment.

Like, we should never take important decisions in an agitated state of mind. Only when the mind is calm, we can choose the best for us.
Many times our efforts are not noticed or appreciated, still we should not feel dejected. Just like a peacock dances for its own happiness, without a care in the world, similarly we should rejoice in our own self after doing our best.

Personal advice:
There is great freedom in self-control and discipline. When you are no longer influenced or affected by people and are not insecure or attached, you become free (emotionally and mentally) and it makes you lighter and then you can soar higher.

This was my third visit to Rishikesh with Ma and never have I felt the presence of Swami Shivanandji so strongly as this time. His persona was overwhelming!!!

I prostate myself to the stalwart sage and to you my most loving Guru Ma for uplifting me and teaching me so much.

In deep gratitude always

Dear Ma,

Please find my summary of Rishikesh Discourse. Please correct me if I am wrong anywhere.

  1. Spiritinlife path is Jyoti marg.
  2. The characteristic of mind is to flow downwards naturally; Constant and continues effort needed to bring it back and silence it. Meditation is the way to achieve it.
  3. Scattering of the mind cause all the troubles, it shows only unreal; Calmness of breath and stillness of mind is the secret to avoid all wrong doings. One should bring mind to one pointedness and prostrate more inside to realize his self.
  4. We can only get glimpses of god when the mind is motionless. Only in silence, we can think or investigate deeply. Meditation is one way to keep the mind calm.
  5. Our actions should notcome out of our ego. Never create Karma out of our ego. We should not even think that I am a good devotee or a disciple. Or I am doing this, I gave this etc. all this thoughts are product of ones Ego. One should always remember that everything happens only by the will and grace of God. Even the efforts in spirituality we are making just because of his Grace. Always remember that Humility and humbleness is the first requirement of a disciple.
  6. Any instruction is given by the gurus should be taken in humility and respect. Because we are not the owner of knowledge. God is the giver. We should take it with full of gratitude, it is only by the Gurus grace one receive knowledge of Atman.
  7. Knowing Atman is nothing but perfection in everything. We have to try always for perfection without bringing our ego. A karam yogi will do all works in excellence.
  8. Atma is the most subtle thing; Even the mind is heavier than Atman and Mind is also a part of Atman, it never dies.
  9. Do not preach about spirituality or experience to friends or others. Others should be curious about you. Do not let the world know that you are striving hard for God. Have joy in striving.
  10. Never limit your mind by saying I cannot do this. Our brain and Manas have many capabilities. Keep trying and learning until the last date. There is always possibility of expanding our self to infinite.
