The process of liberation

(It is suggested that the reader should first read the 3 posts written previously ‘Our lives are in our hands’ prior to reading this article to have a good grasp over this onerous and mystifying topic. Being the concluding post (Read ‘About the author’) it is very comprehensive and long. So please read  with deep attention and patience to understand it fully. This is the longest post that I written so far because I believe that such a serious topic should not be broken into parts to have a firm grip over the subject)

What is meant by liberation?

A series of actions taken towards achieving a particular end is known as a process. And by liberation here is meant setting free of the human soul from ignorance, bondage and incessant suffering from repetitive cycles of life and death helplessly. After which is finally lived a Life Divine of pure joy, peace and calmness and happiness.

To start with, please know that the whole process of human evolution is climbing up the steps of the ladder one by one. The soul climbs each step little by little and unfolds by itself,  sometimes falling and sometimes taking double steps on it. In some exceptional cases, by leaps. Literally and figuratively, the ladder is our spinal chord which is the extension of the human brain if you may say so. Look at the structure and formation of the spinal chord bones carefully. It looks like a ladder. The human soul starts from the base of the spine at the ‘muladhar’ or coccyx centre and slowly, over thousands of centuries moves up the  upper chakras or energy centres until it reaches the top crown centre, the ‘sahasrar’, the central place  at which Divine Illumination takes place. So the climb is from the base to the summit, to the peak of the evolution ladder. Lord Krishna’s peacock feather in the forehead is a symbol of the opened and charged ‘crown centre’ and not just a myth of history. Interesting, isn’t it?

So my dear one, let me now please make an attempt to  explain in very simple terms the complete process of human awakening, ascending and liberation of the soul to freedom of life in Spirit. Now consider this and try to follow what I plan to narrate…

The process-Souls at the very base of the ladder

People who are in a deep slumber of ignorance and unawareness are at the base. They generate and earn very bad karmas and  have negative energy collected at the base of the spinal chord in the coccyx centre. The seeds of bad fruits of past performed actions are  deposited there slowly. These seeds someday will have consequences as ill- effects at their  favourable time and space.  And those who have performed humungous unpardonable actions will take a very long time to correct their mistakes. It will take them thousands of lives to rise and evolve from sub human consciousness of existence to higher knowing. At present their consciousness, intelligence and acts are those of animals because they afflict pain and suffering to others, are insensitive and lack human tenderness and understanding. They are unable to differentiate and discriminate between good and bad, moral and immoral tendencies. All their thoughts and actions are carried out without any remorse, guilt and regret and their tendencies of  bad karmas drive them to do further bad karmas. Such wretched people are unstoppable and the punishment from the Universal Law is a troubled mind, anxiety, fear, pain of all sorts, sorrow, sickness and deprivation in material, physical and emotional condition. Their end is also very pathetic, ungracious and painful. People of this class are at the very base of the ladder and  the pyramid of human evolution. They repeat their mistakes so often that it takes them aeons to purify their souls through the medium of pious actions and as is understood,  enlightenment is much, much far away from them. They die and are re-born many, many times in pitiable living conditions because Nature gives them repeated chances to realize their follies and improve and better their lives. So forgive them for they know not!

This goes on for many, many lives when at the turning point of some favourable life, man realises that he must mend his ways after carping and living through tribulation, affliction and agony of all sorts. Thenceforth,  begins the upward journey of atonement, purification, cleansing as well as redemption. The soul hurriedly improves his life by being good and kind to others and begins to develop faith in God and goes out of his way to create righteous and praiseworthy actions. His mind and heart is cleansed and he is prompted and propelled more and more towards God and religious activities. He no longer wants to sin  and err and he arrives at a  stage when he is at the brink of salvaging himself completely from sinning. This all takes a very long time if you translate the transformation in terms of time. Nevertheless, a desire to realize the sacred nature of God is born in him eventually. Then begins the…

The ascent of the soul

There comes one particular birth which is very crucial because the soul cries, pleads and begs to God to release him from erring and suffering anymore and it wishes to have a perfect life by perfecting himself by leading a pious and pure  life. In that particular life in which he is redeemed and liberated is a very hard and trying one for him because of his huge backlog of karmas or ‘sanchit karmas’.

Sanchit karmas  are the unmanifestated, accumulated karmas of many previous births or incarnations which we carry in a dormant state in every life with us. This backlog has to be cleared now and  more and new meritorious actions have to be re-created side by side, in spite of there already existing innumerable virtuous karmas  in our ‘purse’ of karmas to create a new Divine life. To free oneself from sufferring for once and all and attain everlasting bliss, the pre-condition is that the soul must have a large reservoir of good deeds and not a single sin in his personal account of karmas!! That is the pre-condition of mukti or salvation..

Now what are the prominenet characterisctic of a soul which is being liberated? Such a ‘about to be liberated’-soul charts out and scripts its own destiny. All its vitality is used up from the very start to resist the bad people with whom he is unable to get along because of contrary views and ideologies. So there is always a conflict and clash of ideas going on. The good soul is criticized for being the odd one out but he gradually distances himself from the bad souls around him without caring about public opinion and intensifies his sadhana and refuses to mingle with  evil minds. The sadhana for perfection takes many years to bear fruit as a lot of time is expended in exhausting the past karmas because one has to pay his debts of negative karmas first and also create new positive karmas alongside. So do not worry or get frustrated when on your path of sadhana, you find that you are not making any progress because of a lull or that life is very harsh and difficult to bear. Just carry on by walking on the ascending steps enthusiatically. Don’t stop…go on…

This is also reflected in the sadhak’s  life as he may have  a long, stagnant phase, encounter lack of opportunities, ill luck and sometimes lack of material success also and he is  isolated from the society for being the maverick in the madding crowd. For him situations do not change for a long time and he has to wait patiently, may be a few years, for times to turn around for a change favourably. Such a courageous person does not like to complain as he has the capacity to endure everything because he knows that the wheel of time, though not visible, is still moving and one day good times will favour him and he will be victorious in his mighty endeavours.

And such a determined and dauntless soul is unstoppable as he rises and soars higher and higher to reach the summit, his chosen destination  when all the unborn seeds and ripened fruits of the past sins and misgivings are finally burnt to ashes. With God’s Grace and Guru’s blessings as well as with the tapas of his sadhana,  one day all the seeds of the misdeeds performed knowingly and unknowingly, of many, many previous lives and of the present life also are burnt and exhausted. He now flies up and soars like the phoenix in the open, clear, blue, and vast sky!! So stay motivated, and keep on going my dear one…

Slowly, the total impact of bad karmas begins to fade away gradually. There are good signs seen as  life begins to be  kind to him now. The obstacles and  difficulties begin to dwindle and slowly luck favours him. Happy developments initiate and replace stagnant, irritating and difficult situations. His sadhana also gives rich results and culminates into a peaceful and smooth life. The ego is completely destroyed, his senses are in control, he exercises self-control and his mind is cleansed of all egocentric desires completely.  He forgives everybody whom he had blamed for his bad luck and rough times. He also comes to terms with life and is at peace with himself once and for all. He accepts God as the Supreme Power in the Universe, the real maker and doer of all things seen and unseen.

The door to the third eye is flung open for him because of the force of his accumulated and present life very good  karmas and guru’s kripa. The Lord is very pleased with his lovable  child and showers his mercy on him. He is liberated of all the mental, physical and emotional pain and sufferings finally. Divine uninterrupted Peace which comes after realizing God is his best companion now and he is  afraid of nothing in this world. Boldness and fearlessness are his features and characteristics henceforth.

The dormant spiritual energy, called the Kundalini Shakti (refer-Kundalini Shakti-I)in Yoga is awakened by Guru’s kripa. The lower chakras are purified by cleansing and the upper chakras opened and energized gradually with the help of Naam jaap  and recitation of God’s Holy Name. The inert extremely fine nerves near the third eye are activated by the electric current passed through dormant nerves from the ‘muladhar’ to ‘sahasrar’ in the process of awakening by ‘Shakti Paat’ or transmission of Godly electrical currents by his guru’s mere thought or touch. And subsequently his spinal chord is repeatedly recharged and energized by Divine Light by performing and practicing meditational techniques, pranayam and mantras given by Guru. New cells in the brain are activated by which development and refinement of skills is observed in the life of the sadhak. (Read posts –Mental prosperity, A Fine Vessel and Rays of Light respectively for more details on this)

 Subtle understanding and Divine perceptions is only possible when these dormant nerves and energy centres are opened and charged as the Light Rays in the form of electric currents travel through these nerve channels called nadis. Meditation is the tool which connects the soul to the Supreme Soul and thereby to Super Cosmic  Consciousness, the transcedental state of Divine  Perceptions and Enlightenment.

The secret, priceless knowledge of God and  Mother Nature  is bestowed on him as  sheer Grace. Such a braveheart is flooded with God’s  Light and Illumination and he is freed from all deficiencies, mental entrapment and delusion atlast. His spine is bleached and purified by compassionate, chaste and ethical actions performed regularly for a very long period of time. And also actions like- meditation on God, pranayam, praying, peaceful and loving thoughts, compassion, friendship, mutual co-existence and charity. Such a refined soul does not err and falter anymore because by now all his actions are performed merely with the will of God alone. His actions are always offered to God as he surrenders willingly at his holy feet. His actions only reap calmness, goodness, love, joy and peace for himself and to others certainly. The Spirit shines forth and the quality of omnipresence is revived as he visits the abode of God within himself many times in a day with the grace of God and Gurus. He is always protected by being under the shade and cover of his Guru’s armoured guardianship and shield.

His mind is calm and and nature serene and he is always attuned to God’s will as he is at higher levels of awareness, subtle learning and wider understanding and knowing. He is able to  see what is going to happen in future and can also peep in his and other people’s previous lives at God’s will. Such a person is empowered and brings about concrete changes in his environment and in people but very silently. He can also liberate others if it is the will of God with his unbreakable attuning and link with Divine Gurus. Such a soul is blessed by both- God and the Gurus. The obligation and debt of his body towards God and nature is atlast paid up. The rest of his life is dedicated solely for God’s work, humanitarian acts of peaceful purposes. Blessed are such souls who on being liberated do not live and spend the remaining  life in isolation in caves and mountains for bliss and ecstacy but dedicate their lives uplifting other suffering souls in this crazy and chaotic world!!..

Found all this  interesting and worth trying? Should we walk along a bit more.? Because…

The liberated Ones

We cannot stop at this juncture my sweet child, please be a little more patient and try to know a bit more on this subject which is laden with mystery and intruiging secrecy. Please let me  reveal this to you as it is the will of God that I must tell you something also about the still higher evolved souls whom we call ‘Avatars’.

Who are Avatars?  What do they do? What are their characteristics? Where do they reside? Want to know?

Divine beings or Avatars are emancipated souls and are at the pinnacle of evolution ladder. Divine Souls are those souls who are already liberated aeons back and do not have a physical body at the moment.  They subsist on pure light and mere thought or ideational thought or sankalp and exist on seraphic planes  far, far away  from the earth. They are sometimes sent to the physical/material world for specific purposes from time to time by God or because of  an intense prayer of a devotee or because of the  call of crying souls who wish to be atoned and redeemed and released from the chain of ceaseless births. Avatars are still present there in the celestial world in the highest spheres as mere Cosmic White Light and very subtle vibration of thought. They travel in the outer space at the speed of light and communicate with their commarades by thoughts only via intuition. Though so far away from the earthly plane, their perceptions are very, very intense and they can hear the feeble whimpering voice of despondents or needy souls. They are capable of travelling from one plane to another with ease, though they prefer the celestial sphere for their meditative, peaceful and blissful state of existence.

They are always  totally committed to world peace, uplifting of humanity at large, preservation of the planet and its environment  and also preserving the sacred knowledge of God-realization and our sacred scriptures. And stopping the evil forces from annihilating, stopping them from thwarting the peace processes initiated by countries in conflict and zonal wars, punishing the terrorists, mercenaries and the mass killers. (Read Peace- the quality of our soul ) Apart from liberating the suffering souls individually from their centuries old ignorance and somnambulistic  existence, they work either alone or in a group quietly and still wish to remain in shrouded secrecy from public gaze. Though they do not reside in their physical encasement, they operate from the outer world and communicate with other souls in the physical world via sixth sense, telepathic communion, intuition, and very subtle yet powerful thought power. They also show the way, direct, guide and take them by hand by mysteriously hinting  the scientists by planting ideas, suggestions and answers in their minds  in the field of aero and space, science and agricultural researches and developments for humanitarian and world welfare causes. Their silent and unknown work goes on continually for reforms and evolutionary progress of our planet.

Such personages are very thoughtful, caring  and loving in nature. The Divine souls love to meditate deeply for long hours on God, yet consider love and peace to be the highest attributes and qualities of man. When we attune our mind with such awakened souls, they give us samadhan or solutions,  ideas through perceptions and thought waves. They preach love in this world which is the essence of all religions. They pray for peace for our earth as well for our Cosmic Universe. They come forward immediately and operate from their plane to meet exigencies like natural disasters and catastrophes on our planet. They all very much rejoice on their celestial plane when a soul is finally liberated on earth. In the astral world such an event is celebrated with joy and much gaiety. When the newly liberated soul reaches the astral world after dropping his physical case on the Earth, he is given a warm and hearty welcome because of vigorous and determined attempts and onslaughts endured by the individual to redeem himself.

Isn’t it incredible to know so much about the other existing subtle worlds in our Universe and the liberated souls living out there and also to learn that we are not struggling alone in our mighty endeavours?? Someone is there to take away some of our heavy baggage  hanging on our shoulders and give us some respite atleast?

So, my dear child, do not wonder why are there so many weird people?  And why should I be nice to others while what we receive from them is not good at all. No, dear. Be good to all because we all are the children of one God. When we do good to others, we do good to ourselves. When we perform unbiased, unselfish and loving acts, we redeem our souls. When we think of God and his blissful nature, we are only trying to emulate Him and thereby changing our destiny by transforming our ordinary consciousness to Divine Consciousness!!!!  So love God, bring Him very, very close to your heart and always remember that He is there with you forever, watching over you silently and hearing every tiny little whisper of your tender heart and its agony!! He has the ear to hear even the feeble whimper of an ant who is climbing on the wall striving hard to reach the top!! You just have to call out his Holy Name with all your soul and pure heart and you shall be liberated!! One has to really wish for oneself, have a very, very deep and earnest desire to liberate itself only then salvation is possible! (Also read – How to increase the power of your will?  on how important it is to develop our will-power)

Today is 20th of May,2009 and it is your birthday. A very, very happy and auspicious birthday to you, my beloved child. I pray to God this day that on every birthday you find yourself standing on higher and higher steps of spiritual progress and advancement and joyful awakening. May God bless you, Mandira. May we not only celebrate your birthday, may we CELEBRATE LIFE!!

Mahavatar Babaji

Once again, let me from deep within my heart and innermost soul thank the source, origin and inspiration of this beautiful collection of reminiscence to the Divine Guru, our Param Guru, His Holiness  Sri Sri Mahavatar Babaji, the immortal Soul, the ever youthful and everlasting Spirit residing secretly in the mountains of mighty Himalayas, far away from the eyes of the world and its gaze, seen and visible only to a few. Mandira, you are a gift to me from Him because He saved my life and brought me back from the clutches of untimely death before you were born years ago. In a vision in the hospital bed while I was about to die, He revived me by infusing life-force  back into me. Though I did not recognize who this Mahatama in orange clothes and flowing hair was then, I did have the opportunity of the fortunate beginning of a long spiritual journey with Him and good luck of his Divine Darshan while recuperating. He foretold me in a very  mysterious way in a dreamlike state of subtle vision, about your arrival in future. So if you really see we both are alive because of His Grace and mercy!! We owe our lives to the Holy Master! How can we ever thank Him enough for everything that He has done for all  His ashirwad  and Kripa on us? Words can never suffice.

This blog , with the theme ‘Celebrate Life’ is offered at His Lotus Feet as a remembrance and devotion to our beloved Mahavatar Babaji. My sincere heartfelt prayer to Him on this special day and hour that  his kripa and blessings  be always there on me and all of us and the whole world family, now and always.

May God bless us all.!! May God give us peace, joy, health, mental happiness and spiritual progress too.

Om Namo Bhagwate! Om Namo Bhagwate! Om Namo Bhagwate!!

(Chant this mantra repeatedly silently or aloud for a long time for releasing your soul from all the chains and bondages of the mind and its long, lingering ignorance)…

    Dear Spiritinlife,

    I have been reading you posts since you started writing.The last year had months with dates 10th, 20th and 30th.

    I am at a complete loss of words.

    May Divine Deva and Divine Mother always Bless you.

  4. spiritinlife says:

    @atul. Since this post got public, I was anxiously waiting for your response which matters a lot to me. I am also equally dumbfound as to to how could this article be ever written by me. Imagine how and from where I started!?? Imagine a life devoid of blessings of Gurus and Param Gurus-A rose without any fragrance!!!
    I call upon God that the Divine Masters make me write more such illuminating words so that we all benefit from them. Remain high spirited always.

    Nice post, enjoyed it.

    Thanks for sharing the knowledge.

    Blessed to read this post on the topic I love the most 🙂

    Thank you so much Babaji for blessing us all through these
    blog posts.

    Om Namo Bhagwate.

  7. Shahid says:

    Just remembered that i had read a book long back of Shihn Diljit titled “The Answer” . In a nutshell what the book said is that you are God and just keeping saying God is working, while you are working ; Say God is driving while you are driving. Basically whatever activity you do, keep saying God is the doer. This way we can see a small white light of the divine initially and then it will become brighter and bigger as we practise. I did it for a few days but then couldn’t continue. I was wondering maybe you have read this book too earlier?

  8. Mandira says:

    A very deep and insightful post. Since its long, I am going to break up my reading (and questions).

    As I understand, mukti is a very complex combination of karma and life situations and timing. Because we have already lived so many lives, made so many karma and have no recollection at all of what all we’ve done, with/to whom and with what intention/intensity, it becomes very hard to for us to attain it. Also, the path is very long. Therefore what you mention about determination and being daunting becomes critical. I’d add persistence to that list.

    “The ego is completely destroyed, his senses are in control, he exercises self-control and his mind is cleansed of all egocentric desires completely.”
    – Does this happen naturally? If not, what effort is to be made?How does one know that the ego has truly and fully been dissolved?

    “Meditation is the tool which connects the soul to the Supreme Soul and thereby to Super Cosmic Consciousness, the transcedental state of Divine Perceptions and Enlightenment.”
    -Isnt this the absolute ultimate level or state? If one gets knowledge or answers straight from the Divine, endless possibilities of learning and knowing open up. Or are there levels in this as well? Once we reach this stage, do we get access to all Cosmic knowledge or is this also based on our past and present karmas?

    “The obligation and debt of his body towards God and nature is atlast paid up.”
    – All this while I have only been worried about clearing old baggage. I didnt even count the debt to God and nature as something that has to be paid of.

      Mandira dear, As you had so many important questions scattered everywhere in your comment, I am answering in Q & A format.Your questions are Q and my answers are A naturally so please go through this text and feel free to ask me more.
      With love Amma

      A very deep and insightful post. Since its long, I am going to break up my reading (and questions).
      As I understand, mukti is a very complex combination of karma and life situations and timing.

      “The ego is completely destroyed, his senses are in control, he exercises self-control and his mind is cleansed of all egocentric desires completely.”
      Q- – Does this happen naturally? If not, what effort is to be made?How does one know that the ego has truly and fully been dissolved?
      A- It is a natural process and from your side there will be 3 things as efforts to be made.
      • Awareness
      • Meditation
      • Pious Karmas
      Q-How does one know that the ego has truly and fully been dissolved?
      • You will let go
      • Have more peace and
      • You will have compassion naturally
      Q-“Meditation is the tool which connects the soul to the Supreme Soul and thereby to Super Cosmic Consciousness, the transcedental state of Divine Perceptions and Enlightenment.”
      -Isnt this the absolute ultimate level or state?
      A-This is not the final or absolute stage or level because once you are able to connect and attune your subtle mind to the Divine Consciousness, there are 7 levels of perception where as knowing the Divine is concerned. There are 7 levels of depth into which the yogi’s mind can delve. Depending on his/her will power or ichcha shakti and endurance, these depths can be accomplished.Some yogis are happy with little bliss, others with some peace and some with a good amount of ecstasy. Depends……
      Q-If one gets knowledge or answers straight from the Divine, endless possibilities of learning and knowing open up. Or are there levels in this as well? Once we reach this stage, do we get access to all Cosmic knowledge or is this also based on our past and present karmas?
      A- There are two things- Brahma and Prakriti- Spirit and Matter or Nature as we call it.
      Yes, there are also levels in acquiring transdental knowledge or Cosmic knowledge. Cosmic knowledge is about ‘prakriti’ or Nature pertaining to 5 senses and 5 elements of this Earth. This is also called ‘Para Gyan’ that which can be sensed and perceived.
      There is another knowledge which is the highest- knowledge of the Spirit which is more benign, lighter and subtler in grasp. By lighter I meant such waves that come from the higher domain have very, very light wave lengths and high frequency rate and they can be missed very easily because of losing your concentration which is due to a weak mind. Knowing the Cosmic or Universal Spirit which is present in us belongs to ‘ Apara Gyan’ that which cannot be known with the senses and is beyond the sansara or changing world. Yogis have various levels of accomplishments of this knowledge also. Shri Mahavatar Babaji, Boganatharji Agastya Maharishi are Great Masters of this field. As they are primitive souls and were liberated much, much before us, their accumulation of Spirit’s knowledge cannot be compared and matched with any other holy being. They are superior than any of us and other holy souls also.They are forerunners and therefore I advice you to always prostrate at their feet with utmost reverence and give them honour whenever you remember them. You will receive their blessings. And yes, though not asked by you, I advice you that you should always remember that you should all your life only do very high quality, pious and good deeds called the Nishkaam karmas, karmas without any pride, vanity, selfish motive or even indifference. By doing so, whatever spiritual knowledge you have accumulated will neither be erazed nor won’t be lost.
      Q-Once we reach this stage, do we get access to all Cosmic knowledge or is this also based on our past and present karmas?
      A-Complete answer is in next para or folowing QA.
      Regarding getting or accessing all Cosmic knowledge, it is based on our past good karmas but if someone works very hard and is determined in this life, does not waste time, goes by every minute details as directives sent by Gurus in meditation and is completely unselfish, then there is no limit of accessing the Cosmic Knowledge.
      Q-“The obligation and debt of his body towards God and nature is atlast paid up.”
      – All this while I have only been worried about clearing old baggage. I didnt even count the debt to God and nature as something that has to be paid off.
      A-As human beings, we consume and use endless objects and things as food, water, clothes, medicine, homes, transport etc. We are constantly taking in the 5 elements of nature and we are taking services of so many people all our lives and what I have just told you is a very conscise answer. Imagine how indebted we are to Nature and God’s people and how grateful we should be always to everything. (One reason of showing tea plantation and tea factory in SL photo gallery was gratitude to those hard working ladies in tea gardens in blistering heat to pluck tea leaves for me…..I have had so many tea cups in my life. I thanked them quietly standing next to them when I met those kind ladies)
      So when the soul reaches the salvation state, it only nullifies and stops the debt to increase. And the Guru or the Master advises the chela or the disciple to do all good deeds, nishkaam karmas so that there is no debt accumulating from nature thenceforth. In fact, at a very late stage the soul is freed from all debts of Nature, it takes time to free oneself from all incurring debts.
      These answers must have put to rest some of your queries Mandira. In fact, these are for those people also who are keen to find out about this sacred knowledge of liberation. It is sacred because it frees you from so many sins and suferings and unwanted future incarnations. And that’s why, we worship our Spiritual Teachers. Without a Guru, you will not get Brahma Gyan, knowledge of Self.
      So thank them all- Shri Mahavatar Babaji, Shri Nityananda Swami, Shri Yoganandji, Swami Shaligram of Ganeshpuri, Divine Mother of Pondicherry and all other holy souls.We owe them infinitly…

  9. Dear Ma,
    Thanks for revealing such sacred and in depth knowledge by answering Mandiraji’s questions. Many pranaams to you, Babaji and all the divine Gurus and God for providing this chance to all of us for liberation.
    Many unknown details are there! ! and I can clearly feel that where i am standing and what more i need to do! Thanks for this illumination.
    With lots of love and Gratiitude
    Nirav.

      My dear Nirav, Whenever someone is humble and asks something with devotion, the teacher begins to shower blessings by revealing hidden, indepth knowledge. Or else the realized yogi is unaware of his learnings and wisdom. It all depends who is asking and the intention. Those who have reverence and devotion for Teachers will raise their level of spiritual knowledge very quickly.
      My intention of revealing so much to Mandira at this juncture was a oblique way to tell the other readers that they should themselves work hard by reading each post very carefully and out of love and respect, ask the right questions. Knowing what to ask from your Teacher is also important.
      I also wanted many other readers who are good seekers, to know that if you are ready to help yourselves, the wisdom will come from God to you in some manner. Seekers should have the courage and patience to liberate themselves though the path may be long, it is possible.
      I feel very humbled and blessed when I can be of some use to people like you and others in your journey to Self-Realization. I am only sharing my knowledge which I received from our beloved Shri Mahavatar Babaji and others.
      With blessings
      Ma

    Dear Sarika Maam,
    Mind blowing blog. Your present blog reminded me Jesus telling Samaritan woman, “whoever drinks the water I give won’t be thirsty again.” You have opened a window of learning to spiritual aspirants all across the world. Wonderful. I am sure that your direct talk will clear doubts and mis-conceptions from many minds.
    “Forgive them for they know not!” – This is Jesus Christ’s famous words at the cross. Cross is standing as the greatest symbol of sacrifice and un-selfish love over several centuries. Our Father of the Nation – Mahatma Gandhi always used to get moved by hearing the song, “When I survey the wondrous Cross”. He told his personal physician, Sushila Nayyar to sing this song before he started his last fast for communal harmony.
    You have mentioned whole lot of issues like life of wretched people, soul’s liberation and its ascendance. I have always wondered why so many mean people are there all around. I myself have been a victim of back stabbing several times. Now let me ask a simple question. How long will it take for the whole world to be liberated? Millions of years or billions of years? Or will the cosmic dance of Shiva will continue forever with creation, preservation and destruction and again creation, preservation and destruction?
    I am asking the above question because in real life, whether it is my personal experience or what we hear and read – we see very little change among people. People often think themselves as very smart after harming others. Recently there was the news of 2 Maharashtrian women being sentenced to death. Press reports say that even police officers got shocked hearing the stories of their killings and how they showed very little remorse after all those brutal killings. I think this must be the same with most of the other criminals.Even great people like Mahatma Gandhi were killed and the killers showed very little remorse. Do these killers have to suffer life after life?
    In the auto-biography of Swami Kriyananda (earlier Donald Walters), titled ‘The Path – Autobiography of a Western Yogi’ he gives rare instances from his Guru – Swami Paramahamsa Yogananda’s life. In ‘The Path – Autobiography of a Western Yogi’, Yogananda tells Kriyananda that he has seen the re-birth of Judas Iscariot, the disciple who betrayed Jesus for 30 silver coins. Even in the present birth, after thousands of years, Yagananda tells that the person who took re-birth of Judas Iscariot still craves for money.
    In Tara Shankar Banerjee’s “Aarogya Niketan’, while narrating human behavior and it’s relation to health, the famous Ayurvedic physician tells the son that man is always a slave to so many things – sex, good food, fame and so on. So “never be angry with patients”. Patients, fully knowing that it will lead to bad health take alcohol, restricted food items, go for high sexual drive and invite diseases and untimely death. So is there no end to man’s follies? When the last man will be liberated? Bodhisatwa takes pledge that he will be born again and again till the last man is liberated. So how many re-incarnations Bodhisatwa has to take till the last man is liberated?
    With deep regards,
    Jerry.

    A beautiful & Sacred post, i like to read this again and again. so much knowledge in each lines,

    may devine guru direct all the spiritual wanderers to this post, “The process of liberation” .

    This post gives a lot, thank you ma. Pranam Babaji and ma.

    -So there is always a conflict and clash of ideas going on. The good soul is criticized for being the odd one out but he gradually distances himself from the bad souls around him without caring about public opinion and intensifies his sadhana and refuses to mingle with evil minds

    – Such a courageous person does not like to complain as he has the capacity to endure everything because he knows that the wheel of time, though not visible, is still moving and one day good times will favour him and he will be victorious in his mighty endeavours.

    – He is always protected by being under the shade and cover of his Guru’s armoured guardianship and shield.

    – yet consider love and peace to be the highest attributes and qualities of man.

    – Be good to all because we all are the children of one God. When we do good to others, we do good to ourselves. When we perform unbiased, unselfish and loving acts, we redeem our souls. When we think of God and his blissful nature, we are only trying to emulate Him and thereby changing our destiny by transforming our ordinary consciousness to Divine Consciousness!!!!

    -One has to really wish for oneself, have a very, very deep and earnest desire to liberate itself only then salvation is possible!
