Energy sources of a yogi and a seeker.

 

On quite a few occasions in the last weeks, I was having an urge to take a break from the routine plus blogging and go out and spend a few days in solitude and peace. That did not happen; instead the ensuing days were packed and were rather pretty grilling. I have a compelling desire to go the Himalayas on and off, more so to Shri Badrinath, my favourite hideout and haven. But I guess I will have to wait till the Himalayas call me and I may live in my abode of the hushed mountains. The journey to the secluded Himalayas and the subsequent stay there is always so welcome for the reason that the seclusion and quietude in that area is so advantageous for a seeker to capture the offerings of meditations in those serene moments.

Yesterday morning just little after breakfast, I slid into silence effortlessly without any attempt whatsoever from my end. The spiritual chanting that I do during the wakeful hours normally reverberates during my meditations these days  but yesterday there was no chanting of this naam japa Narayan Narayan Hari Hari, Guru Narayan Narayan Hari Hari … In one go, all the soft whispers and voices of people echoing in the background of my mind vanished in far flung space. In its place, there was complete silence- kewal nishabd shunya. Now  how am I supposed to describe those moments of stillness?

Yet if I am still required to do that, it can be done in one line, mere  one line- It was so very wonderful, so magnetic that I never wanted to come out of that state!!

And it is just the beginning, I could perceive during that time that there is so much distance downward, there were such fathomless depths at that level that diving again and again in that sea should be my main concern these days!!

 I attempted lengthening my profound silence .Very smoothly in the next moment, I slipped into further depths of silence which to me felt like as though I was walking more deeper in a cave which is built inside a mighty, calm mountain. No sound, no noise and no waves of formation of thoughts either inside me. It became so quiet and tranquil inside that I became absolutely still- nishkriya and my consciousness began to stretch and stretch further until there was no barrier left to cross. Simultaneously, my soul was crying out to the infinite Spirit to hold me tightly until eternity as I did not wish to let go of the exotic state that I was in. The uprising of pangs in my heart to dissolve myself completely in the Universal Spirit and to remain in that unique state of stillness became so overwhelming that the silent cries of my lamentation touched the corridors of the Heavenly Father, who in those merciful moments got invoked and responded so softly. I saw really genteel rays of delicate Divine Light cascading on me from the Heavenly skies like exceedingly light snow flakes floating in  mid-air!

The light was not too bright this time yet it penetrated my whole being and I became energized and cheery.  I wondered at that particular moment why is the Light not so bright in colour and not shimmery yet its impact was too evident for me just as I became slightly buoyant. Right then, I heard this gentle voice within me, “Atma Prakash, yeh Atma Prakash hai– Light of God, this is Light of God.  Light of God is not always so bright for you now because you recognize it as it should be and also comprehend its prologue. Divine light not only conveys knowledge, it also brings with it ecstasy, ancient wisdom, and complete silence, inner silence which you have just experienced. The astral rays of Light have energy in them, extra ordinary energy contained in them to accomplish the tasks assigned to you by God. Each ray in the strand of Light is a beam of condensed energy and is intended for your writing assignments which are committed for the human welfare. Write eight more posts specifically designed for the ordinary to extra ordinary seekers beginning with this post and on how to energize oneself with rays of Universal Light after which you can take a short break.”

Essentially I have been pondering since the last few days whether I should now stop writing and take a break from blogging because after all those  profound posts what more can I write?

But all mulling over and brooding for a quest of intense quietude not only came to a halt, on the other hand I also got submerged by the grace of a dynamic meditation sitting at home. I offer my kindest gratitude to God and my revered Gurus for bestowing on me such a magnificent revelation and for talking to me on a personal level thus authenticating this piece of wisdom which I am gratified to share with you all.

So what are the sources of energy for a yogi or a seeker?

Prana or life force – Oxygen has life force and is present in plants and the atmosphere. Life force constitutes traces of Cosmic Light and thus recharges our worn out cells . Pranayam  or controlling the breath to make it rhythmic and calm, also aides in human’s inhalation of extra doses of oxygen. Whenever the mental, emotional, physical or spiritual activities increase, one should double up the amount of fresh air by exercising, walks and strolls in the parks and gardens or by just sitting near the window or balcony for fresh air. The calmer your breath, the lesser the amount of oxygen required but if the spiritual activities are enhanced then it becomes mandatory to take in extra amount of prana to avoid exhaustion.

 FoodSaatvik food or spiritualized food. One whole article has been dedicated to this topic in previous segment titled ‘Food and Breath Control’. Hence I will not elaborate on food at this point and I recommend that you please read the article all over again. All I have to say to you is that it is imminent to have some type of brain tonic for the serious and advancing disciples and seekers as one needs extraordinary mental energy to bring about drastic changes in removing patterns of old habits and ideas when one crosses the threshold and enters the kingdom of Heaven.

Thought Power or Sankalpa

(the new readers  are advised to read previous three articles on -Thought Power I, II & III)

  • Revival of spiritual energies of the disciple by the Blessed Masters
  • Empowerment of the yogi by Eesh sankalpa or thoughts sent out by God

   What is Eesh sankalpa? It is God’s thoughts or

Eesh that is Eeshwar and sankalpa means thought.

 Thought  or sankalpa  is the most potent form of energy in a human being.

Revival of spiritual energies of the disciple and aspirant by the Blessed Masters

We have seen and known how yogis survive without food, air and water under very challenging conditions. They meditate longer and talk lesser thereby saving their energy.

How? Cosmic Light enters the crown chakra of a yogi, penetrates all the brain cells, electrifies them, recharges and then percolates to all the cells thus recharging the entire body through many types of yogic activities. When you connect your thought with the thought of the omni present Guru , the Divine rays originating and issuing from the Satguru infiltrates the body. Such rays heal, nurture and nourish our whole being. The deposited negative energy blocks, hinders some functions in the body and causes disruption in our system and causes imbalance of the body. When we are conferred subtle divine rays from the guru, we immediately begin to alleviate ourselves from the disorders; we are restored to harmony, rejuvenation, health and goodness. This spectacle and unusual occurrence takes place during periods of disruption and disharmony and the faithful and the devoted yogi is supremely favoured with the kindness of the Guru to revive and revitalize himself in exigencies. It occurs in case of invasion of negative energies from known or unknown sources on the disciple. Since the disciple has already offered his life and breath to the Omnipresent Guru, the Guru takes on himself the responsibility to save the disciple from all sorts of dangers, invasions and aggression from the seen and unseen worlds. In the beginning, the disciple or yogi depends entirely on the image of the Guru and the Guru protects and nurtures him in all times.

As the disciple grows in stature and stabilizes in yoga, he is able to unite his mind and immerse deeply in the formless God with Guru and God’s blessings and his spiritual state matures. He constantly revitalizes himself with the continuous flow of thoughts of God from the highest realms. The continuous communion with the Universal Self provides the yogi incessant flow of Cosmic energy. The requirement of food and sleep diminishes and he thrives of contemplation on Divine alone.

When you connect your thought with the thought of God, you rise up and connect directly to Super Consciousness. In the realm of Super Consciousness there is expansion and infinity. At that stage the transmission of Cosmic rays from the Universal Cosmos takes place inside the body through the crown Chakra or Brahmrandra and they enlighten every cell. The power of Cosmic thought is wondrous as well as magnanimous. It not only transforms our narrow and slender range of Consciousness but it also gives us power to raise  our consciousness to Divine consciousness thereby transforming and changing our  normal personality to a divine state irrevocably.

All great ideas of social changes, personal transformation, discoveries as well as landmark changes in societies occur when rays of Supreme Consciousness get there in some individual aura. The source of remarkable, indefatigable energy in a yogi is Cosmic Consciousness and not individual intelligence or energy of food. Dr. Annie Besant and other occultists have time and again recognized this fact by confirming how Cosmic rays from the uppermost realms were sent down on the Earth after which space research discoveries were made and how the scientists and saints alike get exceptional powers and energy to bring down Cosmic rays to transform the planet in a very helpful and exact manner. From time to time, the good souls are given some energy for a special task which is ordained by God to carry out the command of God for the welfare of all beings. The Great Spiritual Masters send out divine cosmic rays intermittently to establish Dharma, peace and Order. If we are sensitive enough to recognize this phenomenon, we will also be able to gather and soak in some rays of Divine Consciousness when this phenomenon occurs!!

    Dear Sarika Aunty,

    Somehow I feel you wrote this post for me, especially the points you have mentioned in the last paragraph. I was elated and my faith in the aligning our thoughts to Super Consciousness got re-affirmed after this post. I am particularly talking about your mention about the significant discoveries happening due to resonance with the Cosmic Light in the minds of Enlightened beings. This brings to my mind the name one of the all-time greatest space scientists of the current times – Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. Dr. Kalam believes in the unity of all religions, he mentions vividly how similar the teachings of the Holy Quran are to the ones of Sacred Bhagvadgita. I had got the fortunate opportunity to talk to him many a times when he was the scientific advisor to the Central Government in Delhi and he always mentioned to me one thing – To meditate atleast once a day, read the shlokas, have light food. He always maintained a calm composure while talking and though he never recognised me by my name but he always gave 10-15 minutes to share his experiences of his life.
    There was a point in this post where you have mentioned you were considering to stop writing. I wish you should never as you have indirectly created online disciples who seek your guidance in this chaotic world. Thanks for the wonderful post once again. Do take regular breaks but do enlighten us with your spiritual experiences and their bearings with our daily lives.
    Regards,
    Deepanjan

    My dear Deepanjan, this reply is keeping you in mind but many others are going to benefit by it as starting from the present post and the next seven posts are going to be related directly to readers. Yes, this post was in continuation with the comments you have been giving and I felt I can tell you and others more about the phenomenon of our mind’s resonance with Cosmic Light. Once we realize that the revelation should make us very humble!! One way of discarding our petty egos!
    I wanted to take a break because Nature recharges us and taking a break from modern urban life becomes mandatory. Anyway, I will blog as long as God tells me to do but taking a short break after every segment is good for me and all the readers.
    Many acclaimed as well as not famous scientists, discoverers and even scholars are souls who were rishis in their previous one or many lives. Their mind is therfore well-developed and they contribute a lot to the society. That’s why you will find them polite, humble, spartan and frugal in life and they possess high values. You are lucky to meet a scientist who gave you very good advice which can be followed easily, a good learning experience must say.
    I am happy to see your continued interest in self development and I hope and wish you pursue it all your life.
    With god’s blessings
    Sarika Aunty

    Dear Sarikaji,

    In regards to food control, I would appreciate your time if you can shed some light on the topic of the clash between spirituality and onion and garlic? I have always wondered why onion and garlic are omitted from foods during any spiritual event. Thanks in advance.

    Meena

    • spiritinlife says:

      One reason could be the pungent smell in these two foods, perhaps that could be the reason.
      Garlic and onion are supposed to have tamasic value so is avoided in spiritual events, but avoiding such foods should be ok to have self control and subsiding excitement of some sort to start with.
      But later on, garlic and onion and other condiments as such do not play a key role in one’s spiritual life, it is the mind which should be calmed by saatwik ways, so have no apprehension on that.
      Everything in moderation is good, follow that path.
      Those of you who never had garlic and onion, please you need not start now !!!
      Middle path always!!

    Jai Sat Guru

    Ma,
    On below point

    “When you connect your thought with the thought of God, you rise up and connect directly to Super Consciousness.”

    How to connect our thought with the thought of God? Is it same as thinking about of God?

    Kindly explain this point Ma, if you think OK.

    Paripurna
