Ignite the flame of Illumination-II

The atmosphere was filled with vedic mantras as special poojas were being organised and conducted by devotees in the outside complex as well as inside the hall. I was listening to the rhythmic sound of mantras recited by the pujaris,  the Brahmins as I sat there facing the idol in the hall.

Gently my eyelids shut as I began ‘naam smaran’ or repeating the holy name. I was uttering mutely…Nityananda, Nityananda, Nityananda….

My mind was soon interiorized with the help of the ongoing chanting when after a brief spell I heard these words   inside me, Chanting band karo”.

 “Stop the chanting.”

  I obeyed immediately and I sat there with a restful mind. A few moments were spent like this when….

 At the point of concentration in between the two eyebrows of my forehead, I saw a Jyot, a Divine Flame in oval shape glowing radiantly. It was lemon yellow in colour. The flame had a thin outer ring of  blue colour. Or to be a  little more precise it was more close to cobalt blue, which quickly disappeared and only the yellow flame remained there.  The  flame was steady. I saw it glowing continously…Ah! What do I say what I saw!? Words can never translate what I experienced in those moments. How am I to say what I saw? What can I say how I felt at that moment? And whenever I recall those peerless moments in the temple, my whole being  fills up with deep tranquillity and joyful peace! I recapitulate those moments even now in times of solitude and repose to connect with the Eternal and relive that sense of oneness with it. Words cannot describe what your soul has felt. They will always fail me to express such sublime moments of oneness with Divinity!

The preparation and foundation, I realized later, for further higher experience had been laid with the glimpse of Light and with this my mind was elevated to higher sources by this time. I understood sitting there that Sri Nityananda Swami had prepared the ground for me for higher and deeper revelations of spiritual sciences and enriching experience. Something more is yet to come.  And so….

The quiet, mute conversation now began with the omnipresent Guru. He informed me by speaking very gently, “Yeh Divya jyot hai.”

“This is the sacred flame of God.”

It occurred to me that it  was a confirmation of the spiritual phenomenon which took place just a few seconds before, or else I would have not fully understood what exactly had happened .

He continued, ” Mei tumhara param Guru hun. Param Guru Param Siddha Yogi hota hai.”

I am your Param Guru.  Param Guru is a Param Siddha Yogi”

(Please read the previous post to know who is a Param Siddha Yogi)

I bowed down reverentially in my heart at the blessed moment with a feeling of deep gratitude and thankfulness directed towards him. I stooped down to touch his feet, which always beam divine beatific rays, as though he was actually present in his physical body in front of me. I today realize that I had become a recipient of God’s blessing through Sri Nityananda on that very special day. So far I had known only about Kripa- Prasad, but for the first time it dawned on me that this is ‘Hari Prasad’  – God’s blessings in such wonderful ways. I was very, very pleasantly awakened with such a rewarding experience!

After this,  the oval shaped  flame expanded to become a small circle and covered my upper portion of the face and forehead and the malleable energy in its circumference was touching my skin while I felt its tingling on my cheekbones very vividly. I even felt the sensations on the eyelids and  forehead. I was deeply absorbed in this experience sitting there with my eyes closed and did not care at all about what was happening around me as the minutes that were floating were too blissful to barter with anything else and was not worth its match really!.

At this stage, Swami Nityanand enlightened me by giving me knowledge of various stages of spiritual progress by the human soul.  He began by revealing “Divya gyan Param Guru se hota hai.”

“Sacred knowledge is imparted by Param Guru only”.

These words of wisdom from the great soul were like immortal drops of elixir, words that infused life and vigour in me because they were spiritually awakening in every sense.  I became more attentive now as I wanted to gather every little piece of the priceless pearls that were falling in my lap one by one.

At this point, the circle of the halo extended and became bigger than even before as I felt the soothing warmth of the extremely light and gentle tingling sensation of the halo touching my shoulders. The scattering rays sat lightly over my both shoulders. And there I sat, unmoved soaking myself in the balsamic rays and felt lighter and lighter. I was further gratified by the following upcoming words of spiritual wisdom from the kind hearted saint.

“Guru aur Ishwar ek ho jata hai is awastha par. Yahan par shanti hai.”

Guru and God become one at this stage. There is Peace here.”

Soon the ethereal halo became much larger, big enough to encircle me wholly and completely by now. I was so enamoured by it that I can’t really tell! I felt the emollient  rays of Light which were falling and descending all over me like satin-soft light showers of featherweight rain drizzle. They were too, too endearing and alluring. And they continued to fall till they touched my knees and the rest of the body by now. I sat there bathing …under the thick canopy of soul-soothing Divine rays. I took a spiritual bath under the shower of Divine Light and felt profusely blessed at that stupendous moment. I was completely dissolved with gratitude for my Guru and God both. God’s blessings came as a real surprise and I was receiving them like the  thirsty dry  earth  that sips the first rain drops of the rainy season hungrily! My thirsty soul never once wished for the rains to stop! A memorable time of my life written with indelible ink!

It was the sheer Grace of God which was flowing towards me through the benevolent saint of Ganeshpuri. Had he not intervened and explained to me in explicit terms through his soft spoken mellifluous words,  I would have not known and understood the matchless value of this valuable experience.

He went on to  speak these weighty words of enlightenment to illumine me once again. ” Yahan aakar, Guru bhi nahi rahta, Brahma hota hai.  Is awastha mei kewal nishabad brahma hota hai. Shanti ke baad maun, shunya hai.  Yeh satya ki khoj hai. Brahma hamara strot hai. Hum wahin se aaye hai aur punha usme leen hona hai. To dhyan karo,  is Ishwar ki Jyot par dhyan karo.”

“After arriving at  this stage even the Guru is not there, only Brahmn remains. At this stage there is the Absolute Truth, absolute Brahma, Immutable Brahma, Unchanging Atman our Spirit. This is the beginning of the search of the Truth. Brahma  is the source of our Origin. We must immerse in it again. So meditate on the Light of God! Meditate on the golden glow of illuminating Light!”

So my dear child kindly listen to me now. Surrender completely in your heart and mind at the Lotus Feet of your spiritual master. He is the messenger of God for his devotees. He will show you the path of salvation and the road to illumination. God’s Grace is received by those who have complete trust in their spiritual mentor and who are ready to obey them unconditionally. One can chant this mantra for moksha thus freeing his soul from bondages of karmic consequences.….

Om Namo Bhagwate Nityananda. Om Namo Bhagwate Nityananda.. Om Namo Bhagwate Nityananda….

 Guru Brahma, Guru Vishnu.

 Gururo Devo Maheshwara.

Guru sakshat para Brahma

Tasmai Shri Gurvai namah.

Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti Om.

    Please can you give me the details (time and location) of Swami Nityananda’s birthday procession that is held in Mahul on 30th Nov. I’d like to go for that function. Thanks a lot !

    • spiritinlife says:

      Swami Nityananda’s birthday is celebrated in proper Mahul village, near the Bharat petroleum refinery and is very close to RCF factory after you leave behind Chembur camp. You can go anytime. During the day tomorrow there will be ‘ramnaan saptah samapti’ and in the evening, there will be a good crowd of devotees. There will be aarti and offerings. You must make it, it is a very special day and I am very happy for you. You are always welcome!

    Sarikaji, Loved reading this post of the Divine Bhagwan Nityananda.

    I have been blessed to have contact with this Great, realized being
    Zero Nityanandi. She is deeply connected to Bhagwan Nityananda.

    Zero Nityanandi says ” The Power did not intend us to start advancing only to vanish. This “Page” is a thing that happens in “the heart”, the twilight. One day you realize how natural it is.
    You are God. You are centered, so to say, in the hyper-sphere of
    I-am pulsation.

    This Page is for … Transcendental Consciousness. That is the ultimate state. Extraordinarily rare experience. All perceptibles have been re-absorbed into the perceiving principle, pure Absolute Consciousness. All perceptibles?! One perceives NOTHING.
    One is EVERYTHING … the substance of everything … which is absence of substance. It is Consciousness.
    The *one* Consciousness. ”

    Om Namo Bhagwate Nityananda.

    Dear child Shahid,
    I can see that you are deeply involved in reading the older posts as per my advice and have been responding enthusiastically, I appreciate that. I have also assumed that you are a well- read man and have a keen desire to know more. Through you and others I have got a glimpse of other sites and Babaji’s followers from all over the world. I can very well imagine that, there are so many people out there who adore revered Babaji and that is easy to understand. Who would not fall in love with dearest Mahavatar Babaji at first sight? He is so full of compassion and pure love and divine bliss!
    Now the question arises is that would you like to just stroll in the garden and only pluck flowers from the different flower beds? Or would you like to make a garland of them and offer it to the Divine?
    Do you want to have Self Realization and enjoy uninterrupted divine peace and Ananda? Do you want to transcend the mental and intellectual level and know yourself?
    Take your time to set your spiritual goals and then tell me. Without setting goals you can’t reach anywhere. Therefore, know your mind well and then begin a new journey of self-realization.
    Lovingly
    Sarika

    • Shahid says:

      Thank you for your reply dear mom. YES I would definitely want to make a garland and offer it to the Divine.
      It is very hard to get a human form and now that I do have one, I would like to use it primarily for God-Realization.
      All divine masters,please keep guiding me forward……

  4. Monika says:

    Dear Sarika
    I am stunned by your words in the answer for Shahid here. It sounds like words meant for me today.. (plus – I am one of those “Babaji’s followers from all over the world” who happened to find your blog :)).
    Especially this paragrah:
    “Now the question arises is that would you like to just stroll in the garden and only pluck flowers from the different flower beds? Or would you like to make a garland of them and offer it to the Divine?”
    I read it all over again, and have a feeling like God Himsef asks me this question and wants me to answer to myself, what is and what should be really important for me on my spiritual journey.
    It seems like I am someone, who would like to just walk in the divine garden and admire flowers..
    Anyway, its something to think through for me now.

    By the way, thanks for sharing your experiences and thoughts via this blog, its very inspiring, I’m reading bit by bit almost every day.

    greetings from Poland
    Monika

    • spiritinlife says:

      Dear Monika, Namaste, so glad to hear about your realizations after reading my reply to someone’s comment. If you felt that God is asking you this question at this particular juncture of your spiritual journey, then these words are for you definitly. So work on yourself and make proper amendments and make quick progress. Offer your flowers of devotion to the Divine rather than just stay indifferent to your quick recovery and progression. Neither should you drift nor should you stay indifferent to your spiritual growth and upliftment.
      Read each post with full faith and devotion, you will get all your answers. Reflect on them and change your personal and spiritual life in accordance to the teachings of His Holiness Mahavatar Babaji. I am always there for any sincere help that you are seeking after reading and reflection.Babaji’s blessings are already there in these words.
      Sarika

    Every word written here has Energy which can be felt if read with full focus, faith and devotion. I am so grateful.
    Even the Question /comments posted by dear fellow readers and the response from Sarika ji also give so much insight and guidance specially “Do you want to have Self Realization and enjoy uninterrupted divine peace and Ananda? Do you want to transcend the mental and intellectual level and know yourself?”.

    So much is there in these lines for me.

    Words would fell less in thanking to Masters but then what else we have to offer?.

  6. Shahid says:

    From this blog: “Guru aur Ishwar ek ho jata hai is awastha par. Yahan par shanti hai.”

    “Guru and God become one at this stage. There is Peace here.”

    My comment: This sentence is very powerful. I just stopped after reading this and was trying to soak in the power/meaning hidden in this sentence.

  7. Shahid says:

    This is worth contemplating upon:

    “After arriving at this stage even the Guru is not there, only Brahmn remains. At this stage there is the Absolute Truth, absolute Brahma, Immutable Brahma, Unchanging Atman our Spirit. This is the beginning of the search of the Truth. Brahma is the source of our Origin. We must immerse in it again. So meditate on the Light of God! Meditate on the golden glow of illuminating Light!”

    Om Namo Bhagawate Nityananda ❤

    Thank you dear mom for this sacred post. Oh God, Please help me surrender completely to you. Thank you esp for this para:

    ” Surrender completely in your heart and mind at the Lotus Feet of your spiritual master. He is the messenger of God for his devotees. He will show you the path of salvation and the road to illumination.

    Thank you Swami Nityanandaji for all your unseen help, support and guidance for me and everyone else on this blog always ❤

    Om Namo Bhagwate Nityananda.

    Ma, each time i read it is like getting filled with some amazing energy and mind become peaceful and still.

    मेरा अंतर तिमिर मिटाओ, सतगुरु ज्योत से ज्योत जलाओ !
    हे योगेश्वर, हे परमेश्वर, निज कृपा दृष्टि बरसाओ !!

    Thank you Bhagwan Nityananda and Ma.

    My Humble pranam to lotus feet of guru Ma, Babaji and all the divine Masters.

    with love and gratitude.

    • Farha says:

      Dear Paripurnaji…I want to thank you for posting this video! It really moved me. After the reading the two connected posts, the video and the beautiful song full of devotion was a open channel to connect to Shri Nityananda ji. 🙏🏻😊

      • spiritinlife says:

        My dear Farha, I have seen this video again after a long time. All the beautiful words sank in so well and indeed the mantra for you can be-Antar timir mitao sadguru, which means sadguru remove the darkness of my ignorance which is inside me by lighting my lamp with your light….
        The lives of saints are very challenging and difficult. They take on so many karmas of the devotees. So many come to them just to remove their sorrows but just a few come to remove their ignorance. Ask for the right thing my dear child.
        God bless you.
        Yours Ma

        • Farha says:

          Dear Ma…as if your reply was received by me even before you posted here…cause I have been listening to/chanting this bhajan a lot since last couple of days and especially the line “Mera Antar timir mitao”. I felt that this is what is needed for me…that my deepest darkest ignorance of many lifetimes be cleared so that I can finally see the Light. In the bhajan, the line is sung very movingly and I could relate to it.

          My sincere pranaams to such great selfless Saints for their unconditional love to their devotees, including you, Ma!!!
