“Ever since the Earth was made for the first time,” the Maharishi told me on one blessed day, “God never wanted it to be putrefied and decomposed.”
I was listening in the astral world with rapt attention to the most revered Maharishi in the wee hours of 29th Oct, 2018. I was with Him in my very light, astral body made up of only sukhshmaprana or subtle life force and did not have any bit of gravitation force.
I asked him in amazement, “Why did you call me here? Did I do something so special that I deserve to be here with you in your blessed aura?”
He quickly replied, “Indeed you are very special and pivotal in this age and time as there is none other than you who has a physical body and can meet us in our territory. We all are without the title of the world, physical boundaries and surnames. We are pure Light, Love and Knowledge. You are the same and will always remain so. You are in touch with God directly and with us all the time. We need you to accomplish the hardest tasks as we cannot do that role now. We wish to remain far from human habitation and insanity; nonetheless the world needs you more than ever before. It has gone through the darkest and extreme impure state of existence but is opportunely now turning towards restoration and revival.
You are an epitome of sincerity, dedication and commitment. Please tell the world that we all are at a very special point of time when all your wishes of becoming spiritual will be accomplished effortlessly. You are the torch bearer of the lost and forgotten knowledge which the Seers acquired ages before and that which is stored with them in their mental domain. They are seated in far off galaxies and other distinct worlds. We have been ignored for very long but auspiciously not anymore. People can now make distinction between the shrewd and honest, impure and pure, siddha and corrupt, worldly and spiritual.
I wrote Durga SaptShati (holy scripture) in praise of Devi Durga in my life as Markandey. God asked me to write and I wrote every word uttered first by God effectively. You are doing the same with my blessing. The time gap between God’s uttering of words and you comprehending them has become nil because of your intense tapasya in helping people progress in their spiritual growth. You have done unbearable and hardest assignments to make sure the time does not lapse and all our projects are duly complete. You made sure the people know and treat time as the most important thing in this world. You sacrificed your own comfort and rest as well as many nights’ sleep but are overjoyed to see your children’s excessive growth and improvement. You are blessed equally and exponentially by all the Sages and their community as well as benevolent God. You will always remain youthful, vibrant and joyful. You will attain more knowledge about concealed spiritual matters as you were extremely unselfish and undemanding when the hardest assignments of uplifting others were given to you. I bless you with good health, joyful Spirit and unending vigour and strength to write on our behalf till your last day of habitation on Earth”.
I said softly, “Maharishi, what more can a small person like me ever think of wanting during the rest of her life and even in all the lives that will come in the future. My unexpressed wish is strong so today I shall speak to you and through you to all the people whom I have encountered or will encounter in future, or will not encounter but will meet in the virtual world. Or even those who have never made me know that they are indebted to my writings and me and they have never informed me yet. I do not care who is benefiting from my writings but I must tell them all today that it is yours and other unheard Sages’ tough penance that I wish to expose to the world. The future generations as well as present population must acknowledge the greatness, immensity and stature of the Sages like you. You all deserve a place in the highest plane. The world has not disintegrated only because Yoga,Dharma, Tapa, Satya * and of all Rishis hold the world together today or else this Earth would have collapsed and perished long ago.”
Him- “Yes, it is so true. We hold the Earth and the other planets in the Universe safely together and we do this because it has been made with God’s so much love and sincere intention. Our ‘Yoga bal’, the power of God union and ‘tapa bal’, the power achieved after doing penance of mind with meditation and thought power is being used by God for all sorts of people. For bad people, ourbal or spiritual powers are deterrents and they are stopped from doing many horrific crimes and sins. For pious and virtuous people, we send very sublime spiritual energies and mental thoughts and plant them silently in their minds which they can implement and profit themselves and the world at large to raise the consciousness of the world consequently.
We are an inexhaustible source of energies, mental as well as spiritual. Our mental energies recharge the recipients because our thoughts are positive, dynamic and solutions givers. They resolve the receiver’s problems and lingering issues which are karmic based. So many times, the source of human problem is deep rooted. People are not aware that their main problems are erupting because of their own negative, poor, debilitating and weakened thoughts. Their minds are putrefied, stagnant and negative too. They all must meditate fervently and regularly to bring some power inside their entombed mind. Their brains and minds both will be electrified and recharged. They must devote time for being a part of a holy company called Satsanga or Spiritual Discourse where Truth is elaborated and transferred through mental energies. Meditating many times in a week will bring influential, compelling and vibrant positive thoughts. They shall bring about transformation in people and society and the human race as a whole…..”
*Yoga,Dharma, Tapa, Satya- The four pillars of Spirit in life.
It was in the year 2014 in the month of September that by mere co-incidence I got a golden opportunity to visit the Manasa Foundation, Bangalore.
A relative suggested this idea spontaneously, the plan was accomplished in a few hours. It was an aspiration that came true for a devotee like me. However, I had no idea what one should expect out of that low key, low profile meditation centre. I visited the place and returned home unassumingly without knowing its consequences thereafter.
After I visited Manasa Foundation, I immediately visited the cave of *Mahavatar Babaji in Dwarahat in September and **Omkareshwar, Ujjain, a jyotirlinga in October in 2014. After that valuable visit to Manasa, there has been no looking back as far as my upscaling on spiritual journey is concerned.
It is only now that I am able to comprehend the significance of these unexpected blessings. They have resulted in rapid and unremitting developments in my spiritual life.
In Manasa, the Sapt Rishis quietly work day and night to make this centre extremely powerful from where we can withdraw as much spiritual and divine energies as possible for our good. It is also a place where spiritual energies are stored safely in different parts of the Centre. Meditating there offers the good prospect of receiving enlightening rays from those stored energies or from the special energies coming from the astral skies constantly from time to time of the several Light Masters residing in different ethereal skies and galaxies.
Besides, now many unusual spiritual experiences on daily basis occur. There have been many prophecies, future guidelines for upcoming plans and for my own internal growth without any interruptions. In the last four years, I have come in direct contact with a number of Light Masters or Rishis and they are Guruji Krishnananda, Maharishis- Amara, Agastya, Kashyap, Markandey, Bhrigu, Dhanwantari, Patanjali, Vishwamitra and a few more whose name I could not remember as I have not heard their names before but they exist. They came one by one on specific occasions to teach me something or reveal unknown facts about them, their lives or their fortes to broaden my frontiers. They have been gifted rare spiritual knowledge and I feel I must preserve them safely on my blog.
I had conducted a two-day Discourse in Bangalore on 15th and 16th Sept 2017. After concluding the event, I went to Manasa the following day for the second time after 2014. By visiting Manasa, my psychic abilities and paranormal faculties further escalated. I began to see a Sage regularly in white clothes and copious white light surrounding him. He was very tall, walked majestically and was always on the move on an urgent job. I was always patient and calm to let things unfold as and when they were meant to be. I waited until I was made familiarized with his identity with God’s wish.
My exclusive dhyana. He invited me to his cave under water
One day, I saw a view which stood out from other such recurring features. In my dhyana, or meditation in the morning at home, I had travelled at a frightening speed with this Sage inside an ocean. I was able to observe that in an instant, I had left the physical body and I had started journeying upwards casting away the physical connection. I was on a fast track and in a very short while I came under waters along with him.
The Sage came closer and invited me with a gesture. I took his hand and we both instantly reached a bed of a very, very quiet, rather soundless ocean. In the water bubbles were erupting from below the many big rocks and boulders. Inside the water, I saw an opening which resembled the mouth of a cave. Indeed, it was a cave and the next moment I saw this Sage sitting in deep Samadhi unaware of anything around him. His eyes were closed and his contour was made of pure, white Light and his countenance was radiating unseen peacefulness. I went on looking at the towering figure first then his very serene face and found his presence extremely captivating.
I was quick to understand that it was an encounter with an advanced Sage but beyond that my capacity to understand lapsed.
He only told me, “I come here to meditate, this is a cave under an ocean.”
I was mystified in entirety.
I only bowed to him with immense gratitude and thanked him abundantly to have shown me a very rare, celestial vision in this life.
Recently, one more time I experienced a similar thing. On 20th May, 2018, I meditated in Cosmic Tower in Manasa in the morning on the occasion of my 10th blogging anniversary. In my meditation, I was given a beautiful experience as a reward for my efforts for maintaining Spiritinlife Blog. I saw a towering Sage emerging right in front of me and in full glory and power as soon as I sat down to meditate. The white figure was as if touching the sky. He was standing on the Earth, the ground where I sat in the meditating tower up to the highest sky. It was a ‘Virat Swaroop’, the immense and prodigious form of the enlightened and wise Sage. I comprehended the immensity of this exceptional experience and figured out that I must concentrate deeply as something astonishing was about to occur. It was then that the Sage in white that was reappearing in my meditations on a few previous occasions came out fully in open and thus spoke to me,
“Mei Markandey hoon. Mei tumse bahut prasanna hoon. Tum mana mei vichar leke aai thi, ki ab tumko thakaan ho gayi hai aur tum aage likhna bhi nahi chhati ho. Tum sochti ho kya bacha ha likhne ke liye. Par aisa mei hone nahi doonga. Mei tumko is avasar par ashirwad deta hoon. Tum aakhri din tak likhogi aur sara jeevan yahi kaam karogi.”
“I am Markandey. I am very pleased with you. You came with a thought in your mind that you will request us that you may be relieved of the task of maintaining this blog as it has been ten years now. You are also fatigued. You feel there is nothing more to write also. On this occasion, I bless you, till your last day you will be writing and all your life will be dedicated to this undertaking.”
Synopsis of chapters of-My arduous Soul Journey; My Autobiography-I.
1.CONFLICT chapter is about my encounter with destiny, an endeavour to untangle prefabricated, distressing, protracted fate. To break the fetters or chains of compulsions caused by one’s own actions created back in the past unintentionally.
2.PEACE An emphatic desire to become free from bondage of subjugation and desperation to get lasting peace in life and relief from enduring conflict.
3. DEEP STRUGGLE OF CONFLICT AND PEACE When I sought lasting peace, there was opposition from nature. The two types of forces positive and negative do not converge. When the positive powers ascend, there is always a contradiction as they are incompatible. The negative powers overwhelm the positive powers in the beginning and try to replace them as a rule as they wish to remain dominant in nature.
4. TURMOIL It is caused because the seeker of peace and truth does not respond or relent to falsehood and lies. He or she becomes a battle field where there is an army of two forces-Dharmakeshetra, and Kurukshetra alternately, meaning negative forces and positive forces.
5.EBBING OF TURMOIL As this war is not possible to win or conclude, Krishna possessing the supreme Consciousness is asked to drive the chariot of life. In my case, Shri Mahavatar Babaji intervened and drove my life-chariot. By having a Guide in life, receiving answers for internal strife the turmoil begins to retreat as narrated in this chapter.
6. DAWN OF LIGHT Where there is Truth, there is Light. The negative forces are sure to recede and die out after which the dark night dispels and the day breaks. Dawn is enlightenment, light from enduring, inner darkness. Shri Mahavatar Babaji brought immense light in my life.
7. BEAMING LIGHT Enlightenment comes to humans when they execute certain actions and expedite them. The nature and intensity of illumination received by the receiver depends on the earnestness and actions of the doer. We beam that light in many ways in our life, example our thoughts, deeds and everyday life.
8. EXPANSION OF CONSCIOUSNESS. The Consciousness of God can be expanded by applying three hidden forces in a man-power of will, thought and action; ichcha, sankalpa and kriya shakti respectively. I was sent to very extra ordinary Spiritual Masters by Shri Mahavatar Babaji though astrally in meditation, this was my tapas for further progress as organized by the wish of God. They were his own gurus-Swami Kartik, Bogarnathar and Agastya.
9. EMISSION OF LIGHT RAYS-In order to emit the received Light Rays from the Sages like Kartik Swami, Bogar and Agastya to the world, I was in addition delegated to three more great Sages to further my working amplitude and scope. They were Guru Gorakhnath, Bogarnath and Swami Shivananda.
10. MORE RAYS OF LIGHT ON EARTH-To bring more light rays and stored spiritual knowledge in the skies where the ancient Rishis reside since time immemorial. I was sent to Maharishi-Amara, Krishnananda, Markandeya, Kashyapa, Adi Shankarachary, Vishwamitra and a few more. To save time, I was initiated into the Yogic science of Astral Travel, write at a rapid speed and bring about positive changes in society.
11. AWAKENING OF HUMANITY- To awaken humanity at an accelerated speed, pralayaor natural catastrophe constantly take place. They settle the balance of good and bad deeds in the world and thus save it from further deteriorating to abysmal. To aid in dissemination of original, ancient spiritual values and redeem the world, the lost science of Self Realization is being spread in the world through modern technology through this blog, my discourses and activities of the Foundation. (Nav Jeevan Jyoti Foundation, NJJF)
12. TOTAL TRANSFORMATION- Total transformation in humans is only possible when the last layers or unconscious mind become purified. It is called chitta. Meditation is the tool or method by which humans can bring about complete transformation in them by changing the lower consciousness to advanced. It requires repeated practice and the guidelines of the spiritual Gurus. The layers are tricky to remove as accumulated seeds of actions and reactions are obscured here.
13. ETERNAL ABODE- Our Spirit or Atman is our true friend and guide. The real purpose of spirituality is to unfold the presence of this hidden Spirit in us. It is in our Spirit that we procure the final rest and peace and freedom. The purpose of human life is only to remember that we are not mortal bodies but Consciousness or Chetna, the eternal Knower which never dies or changes its attributes with time. And that this world is not made for us to indulge, it is made only to crack the puzzle and pass various examinations to qualify to know that ever present Spirit within.
On this very auspicious day of Guru Poornima of the year 2018, I offer my Anjuli* of tears and gratitude to God and all my most revered Holy Spiritual Masters, saints, rishis and Maharishis of yore to have given me this opportunity to write a few paragraphs about my own Soul Journey withstood over many incarnations.
There is no story to tell except show you Light through my Autobiography. It is most succinct and condensed and laden with words of intense wisdom and enlightenment.
This Autobiography is different. It is not written by me intentionally, I have no desire to write about myself. To write about something such as this particular post without the unconditional, divine love of the Holy Masters and God’s will is just not possible. Every word that I have written is guided by some holy being and meant for now and posterity for all the children who wish to know God some day. It is a colossal work of many Enlightened beings who sat in the astral world working many days on its draft and blue print. It was made ready under the supervision by none other than Maharishi Markandey, the author of Markandey Purana, Shiva Purana, Durga Sapta Shat, Mahamritunjayamantra and a lot more!
My next series of posts is dedicated to him. It will be published on 13th Aug, 2018. After that I shall post a few articles on Vishwamitra Maharishi and Amara.
However, God wants someone to tell about them and has chosen me to tell the world to recognize them, revere them, prostrate at their holy feet for the penance they did. We should work towards our own Self Realization with their blessings and immense kindness. They are very forgiving and in no time will they cleanse our chitta or inner parts of mind if we submit at their holy feet.
This Autobiography is unconventional in all ways. Except for referring to myself, God and the Holy Masters, you will find names of nobody. There are 13 chapters, each chapter having 13 lines. Number 13 has been auspicious for me since the very beginning. I have been under the direct tutelage of all the greatest 13 Maharishis* for 13 years since 2005 after I returned from Badrinath.
“In 2005, Shri Mahavatar Babaji invited you to Shri Badrinath.
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.” ………
Regarding my special adoration and veneration for my Holy Teachers and Maharishis-
They have told me very revealing facts about Creation, God and this world. Example, this is the 13th time that our planet Earth has been rebuilt. 12 times it evolved and perished. Vishwamitra Maharishi got enlightenment of God when Earth was just formed for the first time and therefore he holds the supreme place in the annals of human evolution and enlightenment. Next was Maharishi Markandey and then Adi Shankaracharya and Swami Shivananda in third and fourth time of slow evolution of Earth subsequently.
We need to re-calibrate our concept about time, creation, ego and God eventually.
How was I able to achieve the unusual feat of getting the opportunity of being a part of this colossal and very special project of God by knowing the primitive Rishis?
By reserving my mental energies in many life opportunities over several incarnations and realizing that time is the most powerful element or thing made by God. It can reward and punish us depending on our outlook towards it. To value time, sacrifice trifle joys and impermanent things and possessions. If we conquer time, we conquer the biggest challenge of our existence.
My invocations on this pious day-I pray to God this moment that the penance and hard work of all the Enlightened Beings involved in this intense work of conceptualizing, envisioning, drafting and transferring greatest spiritual knowledge should be made easily accessible and should reach remote parts of the world to deserving people. The many known and unknown enlightened beings of ancient world that I have been blessed by should be worshiped and given their due place in human evolution and history today and in times yet to come. My Autobiography is a document and like God, a testimony of their immortal existence and eternal presence in our lives. I dedicate my story of Soul Journey to all the sacred Masters of the world, all unseen sacred beings who have in some way or the other discreetly helped me finish this manuscript in time.

AWAKENING OF HUMANITY
27.3.18 Early morning 4 am darshan.
Maharishi Vishwamitra asked me to write my autobiography. I began to write on 13.05.18
14-07-18. It concludes today with my prostration to him and all the revered Rishis.
God is in centre.
This poem is my brief autobiography. An Autobiography of only my Soul development.
It has 13 khanda or segments. 13 segments have 13 lines each.
This poem is applicable to many things-persons, people and civilizations. It also reveals many unknown laws of God applicable to us, society or the world. Laws of action or karmas are also included to this list.
Conflict,Peace & Deep struggle of conflict and peace. It begins with a specific episode of one main incarnation in segments-1, 2 and 3. They are titled Conflict, Peace and Deep struggle of conflict and peace. The whole process is described when a Soul is entangled in a conflict, it longs for peace but peace is not easily attainable. The Soul has to go through a deep struggle to free itself from the opposite forces in nature. This is a principle of Soul evolution. Every Soul has to redeem itself to become free of anti-God forces which are in the way of the Soul to bloom. The Soul has to go through the struggle with fortitude and determination and take truth and virtues as its weapons to conquer evil.
“Peace and conflict always reside side by side, they get entangled when the truthful and righteous wish to decide who shall flourish and survive.”
Turmoil When I started my sadhana with Shri Mahavatar Babaji formally from 2001, my actual rapid evolution was initiated. That is described in segment-4.
Ebbing of turmoil segment-5. I was in turmoil and looking for answers and the purpose of my living when unmistakably Shri Mahavatar Babaji arrived in my life. With his grace, I was settled, the turmoil ebbed. That is when I started writing this blog in 2008 once I calmed down after witnessing acute crises and distress in my life. Ebbing of turmoil will speak of itself in detail, but taking into consideration even races, civilization and people as same law is applicable to all levels.
Dawn of Light Segment 6 is that chapter of my life when I experienced Light of God in my daily life in my meditations under the direct supervision of Shri Babaji. He awakened me and brought profuse light and enlightenment in my life. I prayed vehemently to God to remove my darkness lurking inside and Shri Mahavatar Babaji cleaned my mind of accumulated karmas of all my previous lives.
“Dawn arrives to greet those who have wished to relinquish their inner darkness, the humans or civilizations experience a new thrust in their Spirits.”
Beaming Light segment 7. This narration is also about this life, the complete story of my journey through many stages of Soul’s evolution.
This poem is also your story of Soul unfolding. It applies to all, but to me it applies on three levels-my entire journey of Soul, the journey in this life and when enlightenment came, it came as very bright Light. All the knowledge has been documented in this blog. The summary or synopsis of this blog is written in this long poem. It gives an overview of the complete blog so far.
Expansion of Consciousness, Segment 8 describes my journey with Shri Mahavatar Babaji and about the sacred knowledge that he imparted to me to know the presence of God inside. I for the first time, got to know what is Chetna Shakti or Consciousness.
“The three hidden forces made by God but kept a secret so far are termed as power of will, thought and action-ichcha, sankalpa and kriya shakti.“
Emission of Light Rays Segment 9. To expand my consciousness further and to strive for it, Shri Mahavatar Babaji sent me to His own Gurus.
“Power to do, or power to act called Kriya shakti was bestowed on me by Guru Gorakhnath, Bogarnathar and The Mother besides Swami Shivananda.”
More rays of Light on Earth, Segment 10 is about my further advancing on spiritual path by going to a few more very advanced Holy Masters to initiate into a new field-Astral travel.
“They taught me Space or Astral Travel because time is so precious, the speed of my bringing down exquisite spiritual knowledge from them must be quickened.”
Awakening of Humanity Segment 11. Today my life is dedicated for the welfare of everyone in the world.
“I am a very small part of an ongoing chain of devout workers or helpers who work indefatigably day and night to bring about a new world order.”
Total transformation is discussed in Segment 12 in this poem. Meditation first taught to me by Shri Mahavatar Babaji changed my world.
“Meditation is the most pious action a human being can perform; it makes the practitioner innocent, pure, humble, compassionate, loving and forgiving.”
Eternal Abode My autobiography ends in segment 13.It narrates my present life.
“It is in our eternal Abode called Spirit that we will finally get the rest we have been waiting for, the peace and tranquility that we have been dreaming for.”
# About valuing time- This blog had to be written in a fixed time in fixed months and even in minutes as the clock was ticking. It was a race against time. With God’s grace, everything was on time and completed as per the time fixed by God.
Those articles had to come in a sequence and order, and they did. It is because of keeping time in mind that so many priceless articles have been written in the year 2020, the year when Corona invaded the world. The humanity is still looking for answers to such unexpected rampage and invasion in our lives by the microscopic living beings. The world seems to be and will be grappling in controlling the virus for many years now. Consequently our world, life and beliefs have changed in these last thirteen months when Corona was declared a pandemic in India in March 2020. The articles guided by the Rishis of yore which I have written in the year 2020 starting from 09.02.2020 with the post- My Extensive years of Restoration and Regeneration of Mind and Soul-I by Adi Shankaracharya uptil Never harm or curse anybody even if you have been cheated, plotted against or victimized multiple times in your life- II written on 14.02.21. The whole circuit, series was covered in a year’s time.
# In 13 years from 2005 to 2018, I made a unique, unprecedented graph of spiritual ascension and have entered the region of ‘Beyond Eternity’ ‘Anant ke Paar’ after crossing ‘Eternity; ‘Anant’ region hence this post as My Autobiography published today. No yogini has come this far. It is not possible for any woman to enter the very sanctified and hushed world of the Rishis. However, it was God’s wish that I touch unmatched spiritual heights that it has been possible.

Third and concluding post does not have any questions asked by me to most revered Adi Shankaracharya like previous.
On the contrary, part three post is an extension of topics that I think about after something atypical happens. I think, I wonder, I contemplate. I find myself solitary. I can’t go further. However, 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 benevolently!
This time it was from Adi Shankaracharya. I am feeling blessed since the last many days. I touched his Spirit!
He told me about many more things –
“Adi Gurus are those who had God-Realization a very long time ago. They took 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 I thought deeply.I had a good nature. I was not as serious as people think. I had a good sense of humour.
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. 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 a very long time ago.
Detachment – Resilience comes from detaching the mind from external factors and sensory stimuli. If we continuously keep the mind away 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 the fruits of all actions is renunciation.
Chitta- It is sub conscious mind. It is called chittain Sanskrit. ‘Yoga chittavrittinirodha’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
The flow of prana becomes steady throughout the body.
The senses are at rest and rejuvenated.
The energy is centralized and coherent in the body. The body assimilates all the leftover and wasteful pranicchunks 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.
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.
Atma unnati or progress of the Soul. It begins to upsurge first, then unfold, and lastly shine.
Benefits of Yoga –
Yoga practice endows the practitioner with longevity, endurance, immunity and deep calmness in body, mind and Spirit.
Subtle breath prevails in the endocrine system.
Yoga maintains your body and makes it fit for sense control, mind control and prepares you forSamadhi.
Your good qualities make you everyone’sfavourite –
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 topmost priority on your to-do task-list every day. No other person does this. They first give priority to family and oneself. 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 the 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 to all of us. I, Krishnananda, Gorakhnath died in unnatural conditions because there was no one to look after us or our health and well being, although we had a 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 MahavatarBabaji 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 said that you shall get a lot of fame for writing books. He asked you in the summer of May 2005 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! It is because many of those great scriptures are supervised and guided by a few Sages appointed by God, they whisper to you quietly, make you intuit and you write on their behalf!
You instantly refused his proposal with firm conviction by giving a genuine answer three times vehemently. You said, “What will I do with fame and glory if I have not understood what I am writing for the world. I do not want any fame and name, but I wish to know only God.”
He was very impressed by your simplicity and honesty. It was at that time that God changed the original plan and reviewed the situation. Your destiny was changed, re-directed and digressed dramatically.
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 would first like to come to a stage when I am in a state where I understand 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 after I have done purushartha, effort.”
Shri Mahavatar Babaji blessed you by giving you four pillars-Yoga, Tapa, Dharma, Satya– God union, penance, righteousness and Truth.
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, Gorakhnath, 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. You have never got one day to rest or release your tensions, fatigue 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 you remember one of us to give you solace and peace.
You have brought all of us to the forefront 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 the 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 extraordinary missions for the welfare of Society.
Travelling with vehicle of subtlest mind, atisukshmamana 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 2018 in Manasa Foundation, Bangalore, and initiated you formally in this yogic science. Henceforth, you shall perform better day by day to achieve a list of extraordinary feats in the 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 Spirit in Life. 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 dimension and 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 Spirit In Life and Manasa Foundation are conceptualized, 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 extraordinary 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 million years for them to wait to succeed in such significant undertakings!
People ignore you, scoff at you or even do not believe in your visions; you never want to be promoted or praised 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 Spirit In Life and Nav Jeevan Jyoti Foundation projects. In future, Spirit In Life 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 kind of far reaching, painstaking endeavours on Earth. The seeds are sown with the Sankalpa of God, wish of God. At the most appropriate time, the sapling grows!
You must stay very peaceful and even minded all the time in spite of the most disturbing situations. This is real maunor silence.
Live in Shanti, Maun, Ananda–peace, silence and ecstasy.
Have Divine Ego- I am Atma, I am free, I am pure Consciousness, I am eternal…..*Nirvanashatkam
Another short post by Adi Shankaracharya on FB- Holy dreams, Holy aspirations (P- 2) (Joshimath) dated 10.10.19.
The Atmashatkam (आत्मषट्कम्, ātmaṣaṭkam), also known as Nirvanashatkam (निर्वाणषट्कम्, Nirvāṇaṣaṭkam), 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 dialogues took place in my meditation.
However, this dialogue was unique. It was different 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.
“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 a 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 sankalpas to you mentally and wished that you would 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.”
Special, my very special experience
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?
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.
As said before, 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 that we shall stop at the birthplace of Adi Shankaracharya!
In Kalady temple, every moment was absorbed with sincere gratitude and thankfulness. As I moved step by step in 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. I cave 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. I wished to be with these Holy Souls when they incarnated.
I am reticent; I cannot vocalize 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 at their holy feet. I wanted to earn their blessings by my eternal loyalty towards them. I wanted to earn their blessings with my endurance and fortitude, actualize all the precious gems which they would have given to me to purify my Soul. I wanted to merge myself with their eternal brilliant light. My heart is poignant as I say and write my concealed yearnings for the world to know.
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 brahamaandor 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 at night after I came back from his birth place.
What then is the difference between earlier adoptedmethods and this 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 the 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 themanas 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.
Sushumnanadior 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 manasor mind releases after detaching itself and travels through akash or ether. This part is called atisukshma mana or extremely subtle or benign mind. It is composed of atisukshma 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 the 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 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 a 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.
I slipped into the deepest levels of my mind after I cut off links with the prevailing physical world. I traveled to the astral abode of Adi Shankaracharya a few times. 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 the 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 anantke 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, it could be recounted, recalled and remembered too well. 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. I stretched my time consciously as far as I could have. What I could not attain in this time of my life in Kalady in meditation, I was able to achieve that through astral travel to the residing territory of Adi Shankaracharya at home.
Dialogues 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 practised 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 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 tremendousseva, service and daan, charity in all mylives.”
Me- “Why did you take 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 a 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 way, people 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 Spirit In Life. 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 to never before heights from where you shall broadcast my innermost realizations and earnings of many 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 His 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 BhajGovindam. But it took me more than 15 months to finish it because in those days life was very 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 a 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 the reverse. There is excess 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 travel and 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 the 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 worldwide 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 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 AtmaGyani Guru.
AtmaGyani 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 shishyacan 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.
BhajGovindam, 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, bankof Ganga river in Kashi. I looked around and saw people suffering so much in body and mind. However, they did not seem to have thought about its remedy or elimination. After that, I met an aged scholar in Kashi and seeing him spontaneously, I began preaching to him. I told him to sing glories of the 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 sadhaksstop and do not work hard enough 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 dukhmisery or unhappiness. Your mind is away from the joy and Ananda, ecstasyof 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 vasanaslust,moh attachment, mayadelusion and confusion and have no discrimination because their indriyasenses 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 Anatmaor temporality. 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 vivekwisdom 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 during a time such as this, I cannot even utter words of thanks as I have fallen silent. Words seem like noise in your presence. There is so much shanti peace and shunya thoughtlessness 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 VivekChudamani 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 – vasana, ichcha, moha and Atma.
You have completed your task of releasing all vasanas, ichcha in very limited time. Your clean antha karan mana inner most mind 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 VivekChudamanimany times.
I have come to you astrally when you were a small girl and imparted the essence of Vivek Chudamani in your sub conscious mind. When you formally read Vivek Chudamani in your youth, you understood the meaning or bhavartha, instantly because of me transferring you the mental power in the past.
Today you are Mukt, jeevanmukta, free from all impurities of Maya. You are like a Paras, a 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- VivekChudamani 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 the 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 shashwateternal and nirakaarwithout any shape.
Atma is regained with grace, blessing and unconditional love for Sadguru in every life.”

10thSpirit In Life 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 BhajGovindamauthored 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?
Spirit in Life 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.
I visit Kalady, the birth place of Adi Shankaracharya –
At the airport as I was embarking on our journey, I most unexpectedly met someone who I do not know but was known to my relative who was with me. 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.Until then, I did not know that was the birthplace of Adi Shankaracharya. I only knew he was born in Kerala near the river Poorna.
I could see God’s intervention in the words of that stranger who crossed my path that fateful day. Kalady was unplanned and spontaneous and was accommodated in the itinerary 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 afternoon 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 propitious day in my life. Words fall short to express the deep thankfulness a devotee offers to God and his appointed sons of God, called Gurus on days like the one I got to experience in the temple, his place of birth.
Our host in Kerala insisted that we also visit some other holy places of interior Kerala where Adi Shankaracharya did penance. Time was limited and I was finding it impossible to include them in the list. The proposal kept coming back through him. Another will of God was nudging me, urging me 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.

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 expected!

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-sthool, sukshmaandkaaranshareer.
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 sthoolor physical.
It can next go a bit inside and enter sukshma or feeling, perceiving state and lastly it can go to its foundation- the kaaranor ego state-the ‘I am’ state.
Beyond these three states isshunya 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!

Om namo bhagavate sivananda
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.
II Om Tat Sat II
2. Neeta Agarwal
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.
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
3. Midhun PK
Please find my summary of Rishikesh Discourse. Please correct me if I am wrong anywhere.
Spiritinlife path is Jyoti marg.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Atma is the most subtle thing; Even the mind is heavier than Atman and Mind is also a part of Atman, it never dies.
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.
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.

Ref- Shakti-III of this blog
-Consciousness develops best through work done as an offering to the Divine.
-Indolence and inaction end in tamas; that is a fall into unconsciousness; it is contrary to all progress & light.
-To overcome one’s ego, to live only in the service of the Divine.
-I make no difference between work and Yoga. Work itself is Yoga if it is done in a spirit of dedication & surrender.
-When one works for the Divine, it is much better to do perfectly what one does than to aim at a very big work.
-The progress in sadhana comes from the rectification of inner and outer attitude, not from the nature of the work one does-any work, even the most humble can lead to Divine if it is done with the right attitude.
Q-What is concentration?
A-It is to bring back all the scattered threads of concentration to a single point, a single idea. Those who can attain perfect attention succeed in everything they undertake; they will always make a rapid progress. And this kind of concentration can be developed exactly like the muscles; one may follow different systems, different methods of training. Today we know that the most pitiful weakling, for example, can with discipline become as strong as anyone else. One should not have a will which will flicker out like a candle.
The will, the concentration must be cultivated; it is a question of method, of regular exercise. If you will, you can. But the thought, “What’s the use?” must not come in to weaken the will. The idea that one is born with a certain character and can do nothing is stupid.
I think the most important thing is to know why one meditates; this is what gives the quality of the meditation and makes it of one order or another.
You may meditate to open yourself to the divine Force, you may meditate to reject the ordinary consciousness, you may meditate to enter the depths of your being, you may meditate to learn how to give yourself integrally; you may meditate for all kind of things. You may meditate to enter peace and calm and silence-this is what generally people do, but without much success. But you may also meditate to receive the Force of transformation, to discover the points to be transformed, to trace out the line of progress. And then you may also meditate for very practical reasons: when you have a difficulty to clear up, a solution to find, when you want help in some action or other. You may meditate for that too.
I think everyone has his own mode of meditation. But if one wants the meditation to be dynamic, one must have an aspiration for progress and the meditation must be done to help and fulfill this aspiration for progress. Then it becomes dynamic.
A Note- For further reference reading, I have posted some more articles from Fb in the following post here. They were meant to reinforce what I had spoken in the Discourse on 16th December, 2017.

Water has inherent electricity, power inside it. Similarly man’s thoughts also have energy embedded in it depending on the will power, type of actions done and the nature of the person.
A thought is born in the mind. When it is born, it is like a small bubble about to burst. If one does not pursue or carry forward that positive thought for it to manifest, then it dies out.
If the thought-bubble is applied with the will of the mind ofthe doer, it starts to enlarge gradually and becomes large enough with the power of the will and the power inherent in the thought itself in the first place. SankalpaShakti, Thought Power is a power given to man by God for good intents and reasons.
We must observe our thoughts in order to make ourselves in charge of their strength. And also to keep in check thetremendous force that they can give usespecially the negative, weak and damaging thoughts. Negative force arising out of the negative and weak thoughts should be negated completely.
The mind has the power of God but we believe that it is I who is the doer. This type of situation and act is delusion and must be avoided strongly since we are liable to entangle ourselves in the stream of energy in the mind inconclusively. Beware of this ego and deception.

Madurai-Palani-Rameshwaram pilgrimage and Discourse 9th to 14th Nov’17
“Silence and peace, more silence, more peace you shall get if you let go of your past grips or anchors and merge yourself completely in the silence of your Atma. When you come in touch with your Atma, you are in complete restfulness and calmness.
Human being should also constantly remain clean in mind and Atma. The day the man understands that this world is a reflection of God, a playground; he will begin to love God more. You shall also see this miracle if you consolidate your mind.
You should try very hard and make all efforts to know the Truth; never get tired in pursuing it. Trust in yourself and after invoking the God realized Gurus, complete your work fast so that you can finally rest forever and attain bliss as benediction which is beyond the senses. The persons who dedicate themselves wholly in believing and knowing God, they procure a paradise within themselves while they are alive and they do not have to go anywhere else. You all should together make this world a believer in Truth and come in the counting of those people because of whom this world’s welfare is achieved. May God give you Truth in your intellect, may you do truthful actions and may you live in Truth.”

Madurai-Palani-Rameshwaram pilgrimage and Discourse 9th to 14th Nov’17
Submission of all worldly desires and removal of all egos in an individual is the stage from where God allows itself to be recognized and emerge. These two delusive states of mind do not allow God to emerge since they erect a wall of opposition between the devotee and God himself. Any want that relates to the delusive and temporary world changes, the state of mind of the seeker of almighty God, since pursuing those desires and substantiating the false self-image in the form of ahankar or ego pulls him out towards the pursuance of those objectives. In this pursuit, the mind goes away from the point where God is realized and understood- and that point is within.
Our manifested lives are a direct shadow of our own created sankalpas or thoughts. Whatever we do with our senses and mind in the physical world as actions are first of all created mentally in an unconscious or conscious state of mind. Conscious state of mind is the one which is aware of God’s presence within and actions are done with that presence. On the contrary, unconscious state of mind is that consciousness of a human being who has made a wall between him and the presence of God in its being with his ego and desires. When all of a sudden the man realizes that his stature is of no significance and God’s all powerful presence is the thing that should not be ignored, the meltdown begins. The ice thaws and starts to melt until a stage when all the ice melts and there stands no wall or door that blocks the startling presence of God in oneself. We all must come at least up to this state of consciousness to avoid the bickering of one’s mind, to escape the milling and beating of the jeevatma’s incessant incarnations as there is no escape.
Direct contact and touch with God’s presence is a must for those who wish to concur and agree in all forms with the Sankalpa or wish of almighty God. God’s wish has so much force, power and energy in it that it is in every sense irrepressible. How can one escape the will of God if one’s own desire has no life of its own? When the vacuum, which is created by the absence of all desires and the deterrent ego falls and crumbles, all the space that is left inside is filled up with just one thing-God’s personal space. Such a space within oneself has the command and directives of the powers of only God and nothing else. From within arise benevolent ideas and noble objectives, which flourish and nourish in masses and have very remarkable consequences on the Earth………
Foot Notes– Please note that my discourses are exclusively for a private audience. There are problems attached to it. We cannot conduct a programme for the masses and to keep privacy, we are compelled to use our own rooms in the hotel as a hall for the small gathering. Also, using banquet halls for a divine purpose is a taboo.
As I conduct discourses in many destinations, it becomes a new challenge every time. We have to face many problems on the spot every time for making videos and audios. But by grace, somehow we always manage to solve all problems in all the events and the outcome is good. All my focus is in delivering a good message and answering all questions related to sadhana of all participants present there as well as the viewers of the blog.
This recording was done in very limited resources yet we succeeded. My gratitude to all Spiritinlife participants for their co-operation and support 24X7 during such a passionate pilgrimage. It shall always be etched in my mind!
May we all be always devoted to a great cause such as Self-Realization!!
