                                                    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/

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.
