Quoting from the previous post-The shining stars in the galaxy-
These sages are out of the ordinary, they are endowed with some rare mental earnings and calibre by which they can penetrate in the minds of other people who are located at extremely far-off places on the planet or even Universe in very subtle form.
By knowing their minds and the distortions, they apply their own mental powers to enhance the thoughts for changing the existing to more powerful ones or they plant new, very innovative ideas on the lowest layer of their subconscious mind.
I have received this extra ordinary knowledge, never known before to the world publicly on account of my very good deeds and devotion towards my very humble and holiest of all great exalted Masters residing in the infinite sky ever since millennium.
I shall beam these sparkling rays of enlightening holy information to every part of the world by which many areas in the world and many people scattered in the globe shall manifest their dormant Spirit and neglected divinity.
The specified, assigned job to me by my sweet loving divine Father and our beloved God is to revive this planet and Universe with very powerful spiritual rays by merely spreading awareness about the long forgotten very humble ancient sages.
And to help those who wish to come forward on their own to redeem their aggrieved souls and to care for them so that they do not lose hope or lose their path which they must never leave and must always walk on………
Dear all, this post was published on 22.12.15 and to ensure that it has been read well and understood thoroughly, it has been decided that there will be an audio of your questions and my answers on this post. The audio recording on the same should come in the first week of January 2017. With it we begin a new segment.
Therefore, please read this post about three times, put your questions in the comment box of the same post below and I shall clarify and explain through an audio for your convenience. Please send your questions before 24th Dec, 2016.
As the name of the post suggests, this post is an extension of earlier posts.
Since I last visited Rishikesh in December of 2015, there have been a few posts as well as a few discussions on the same topic from the book of Swami Shivananda-Thought Power.
This subject is grave and needs to be studied well.
On 27th Nov’16, there was a small gathering where we again read and discussed a few portions of the book. An audio is available for the same. As it was not planned and was an audio for the attendees’ personal use, there many be some aberrations. Henceforth, audios of a few posts along with my commentary will be made available for your study and learning.
Some photos, synopses and a short video is on Fb on the first Spiritinlife Annual Meet in Rishikesh.
With this post, this segment-Truth in Light gets over. We shall be starting with a new post on New Year.
Today is 5th December, the day Sri Aurobindo left his body. This post is dedicated in his memory, in remembrance of his hard toil and sacrifices made for the whole humanity to raise their Consciousness. Incidentally, my few years 2002 to 2006 were spent in Pondicherry and my meditations became very intense as I sat for long hours in his samadhi. A small prayer from me today to him and God- May my today’s message of God through this blog post reach every nook and corner of this planet and raise the vibration of each being and may I continue to work and toil till the last day in pursuit of this wonderful endeavour to make this planet more loving and peaceful!
The first Annual Meet and Workshop of Spiritinlife was held in Rishikesh between 10th to 12th November 2016. There were 23 participant from different places. Synopsis and a few pictures shall be uploaded on Fb soon. The following are the audios of the first videos as well as the videos of the conducted Workshop. The post-‘Augment of a New Era-I,II & III was taken up in a few sessions. You are requested to take help of these posts to be able to understand the posts in depth.
Besides, on Home Page, we have inserted three more Tabs-History of past heritage, places and pilgrimages & Workshops conducted. The first being the synopsis of my complete soul journey, the second about all the places and pilgrimages I have made since my childhood and lastly the Workshops held so far. I did not record the number of Workshops earlier, these are the ones that could be recalled or were announced on Fb. Posts on Fb were started primarily from mid 2014. However, recently there have been so many posts which are connected to my soul journey and are very important to visualize how we transcend slowly. They too have been incorporated in the index although they are in Fb. As you will see in ‘Blog at a glance’, this blog has now been divided into 4 parts-It starts after the stage of Moksha, then moves towards blazing knowledge, very blazing knowledge, intensely blazing knowledge and finally infinity. This post is from that juncture -https://spiritinlife.wordpress.com/2016/04/12/regeneration-in-katargama-pilgrimage-to-sri-lanka-i/ Besides, the new posts although on Fb are from very high stages, even infinity and hence got included here on WP. So kindly avail these posts in one glance. Also, adding these new Tabs will give you an entire picture about how our soul travels towards perfection and infinity and how crucial each life becomes for us to attain that state. You will now understand all the posts on this blog far better is my conviction.
There will be one more Tab in the end for Index 2. Index 2 will have the list of all the audios and videos. Henceforth, there will be videos of important Workshops when important posts will be explained in depth and that recording will be added in the posts as well as in Index 2. In this way, all the Works undertaken by me at a glance as well as my complete spiritual journey has been compiled and document for posterity sake. The Holy Masters have opened the floodgates of divine nectar of lost ancient spiritual wisdom, whoever wishes to take a dip in this sacred river is welcome to do so!
Dear all, indeed I am very blessed to have got an opportunity to post a highly useful post on the auspicious occasion on the festival of lights, happiness and prosperity-Diwali. It falls on a Sunday and it was a day for publishing a new post filled with wisdom, new knowledge and tremendous illumination. In fact, the first part was published on Facebook last Sunday and the remaining two on the following Sunday, 30th October 2016. This article has all three parts as one complete post with some images.
This post is very elaborate, the subject demanded it. In fact it is a continuation of these following three posts from this blog in regard to my conversation with revered Swami Bogarnathar, one of the eighteen siddhas of South India and Shri Mahavatar Babaji’s Guru.
This evening is very, very special and splendid.
The ancient saints are happy and rejoicing in astral space.
They wish to communicate with us and teach.
With the will of God only they speak and transmit.
One such saint, so obscure to the world and totally unknown to all.
Spoke to me this afternoon and made me extremely fortunate.
And laden me with so many unknown spiritual facts and knowledge.
Privileged I am indeed and how I wish I could continue our conversation unremittingly.
But he had to go, to his very highly located astral abode in the thinnest sky.
Rarely does he come or speak, he just watches and waits till God compels him to go.
To the Earth and meet another yogi or devotee and then the appointed meeting takes place.
Such a conversation is very subtle, silent and yet full of blooming harvest.
One such splendid meeting or interaction took place today with him and me.
I never expected this to happen to me as my day was so very busy and hectic.
In anticipation, I waited this whole day, waiting for God to give me some divine messages.
I held on since I know no matter how frantic or chaotic or unarranged my day may turn out to be.
It is my unfailing trust and surety I have placed in God and his Holy sages.
That did not let me lose my patience to linger on till all unexpected tasks were completed.
At every hour, more work was placed in front of me to accomplish and my writing was pushed further in a corner.
The silent learning and watchful patience was kept alive till each unexpected job was covered and done.
As I say my story to you, all the scenes and mental recordings are coming to fore.
Let me not waste a single moment now so that the suspense is over.
Too much can be done in a few minutes I kept telling myself, time is not going to capture me.
God is teaching me the whole day; I must be attentive and must not lose my mind and its control.
He told me, “I will tell you my biography in more detail now.
Somethings I have already told you before which you have documented in your classic manuscript.
I never wish to speak to anyone and am compelled to tell you all more about me.
No, I am not Gorakh Nath or Rishi Kashyapa or immortal Maharishi Agastya.
I am a ‘Param, param, Siddha Yogi.
I am immortal and Chiranjeeva.
I am Bogar, but my real name was Gorakh.
I researched thoroughly on the formation of mind.
I took final rest in Palani in a thick jungle.
And never returned to the territory of earth.
I am still resting partly in Palani today.
And never wish the world to recognize me.
You are the face of the long forgotten, highly accomplished, ancient rishis.
We have become resurrected through your writings today and come alive now.
You are our herald and light house through whom we have again become lively.
Who would have known anything about us since we came on earth so long ago?
It is today God’s wish that people should know more about us as the world knows mainly the untrue ones.
Of modern world where truth is packaged with such shallow knowledge.
No penance is done by them, only external make up and alluring talks given.
Truth, the Truth can be known only by those who are chosen by Truth itself!
Freeing the mind with all the mud of the tempting and deceiving Maya.
Is the task of every seeker who wants to have a glimpse of God within oneself.
If that is not achieved, then the aspirant, the so-called master must not teach others about God and liberation.
God punishes such cons and cheats since masses follow them very blindly.
In today’s world, people are attracted to the externals easily and get cheated.
They themselves do not have the courage to go through hardships of knowing God and liberation.
They wish to take a shortcut and know hardly an iota of the method of knowing God inside.
They do not even want to wait outside the door of God and knock untiringly till God is pleased with them.
Such is the condition of this modern world where barring a few, all are living in a fake, false world.
Full of sorrows, grief, fraud, jealousy, shallow character, lies, deception and so many other faults.
Yet they do not want to know and find out eternal pathway to God Realization.
And persist and live endlessly and fall into the same well of ignorance and darkness.
What is there to linger on in this world when the clutches of birth, death, disease and old age never cease to exist?
For a few moments of temporary happiness, man goes on living senselessly and takes birth after birth.
In every life, time is lost in demanding still the same happiness which is never going to be permanent.
The pain of birth, pain and sorrow of losing the dear ones, the anguish of disease in old age.
And finally, one’s own death also does not teach the ignorant man anything apart from gaining temporary happiness??
The sleep never gets over, of not knowing the truth and what is the reason and cause of this world.
When will you wake up tell me, does not the constant cycle of life and death teach you anything?
Can’t you see everything around you is constantly changing and not permanent?
If you can see the two things that exist around you, you will never seek the impermanent.
One is temporary and the other permanent-temporary is related to the world and permanent to the Supreme Consciousness.
Nothing including your body will last forever; only the Power behind all the things in the Universe will sustain.
That Power is behind everything whether animate or inanimate or anything that you feel or see.
Go after that, become detached and peep inside your mind’s deepest levels.
You will find that silent Power residing even inside you but in an obscure way.
Search for that, do not waste your time, this life is very precious, you must understand.
All help will come automatically after that if your determination to know God in this life is certain!”
“Conscious, sub-conscious and deep conscious or unconscious,
Are the three states or levels of a human mind built over many lives and years.
They are formed slowly and gradually as we progress from one life to another.
I researched thoroughly on the formation of mind and perfected it; I have told you before,” resumed the Holy Ancient Sage, Bogarnathar.
“My very revered and holy Maharishi, all this is so new and sheer wonderment for me,” I responded.
“I have never ever heard of someone doing a thorough research on the formation of mind before.
Mind power, thought power are heard but formation of mind is so queer and unheard of.
I am very fortunate and blessed to have come across a stalwart like you and I am even eager to learn from you.
Will you bless me and teach me if you may please, and shower over me your grace and kindness?
I am your little infant, a child and a seeker and student; servant and a prostrated devotee of God and sages’ and saints’.
I have never known how a mind is formed, how it dissolves or erupts or merges or disintegrates slowly.
Surely, all this is a complete science, an unknown science, a secretive science and a knowledge very hard to gain.
If you think I am worthy of you, if you find it suitable that I deserve it, if you are sure I can always retain and access it.
If I can be of some use to you or the society at large, if I have done enough penance and hard work.
If I can serve all the Holy Masters with this divine knowledge, if I can help the disciples and seekers alike by this.
Only then you must shower your kindest of blessings and tell me about this unknown science by whom the world shall also be sanctified.”
“You are an epitome of humility, a role model to follow by others, a perfect disciple and the most suitable of this divine science.
God has chosen you after me to propagate and teach this ancient, lost and long forgotten science, which was owned by barely three others.
This is the rarest of rare mental science owned and perfected by only me and three others ever before in bygone times.
God has chosen you to receive this science because you have broken all physical and mental human barriers to serve God.
You have gained the most because of your own will power and inner strength; it comes from your own good nature.
No one has taught you that you must not hurt anyone, it is your own gentleness which makes you a kind soul.
You have placed us before all and have put all your happiness and comfort behind so that others should flourish first.
You have never told us that it hurts at night in bed after you slogged like a slave and servant the whole day for others!
You are increasing your own physical and mental strength day by day by extending your limits as workload increases phenomenally.
You have brought your mind at a stage when it touches the lowermost and higher most depths of brain cells.
Each cell in your body and mind is ignited and alive as well as illumined and filled with divine charge.
All this has happened because you have never said that you do not want to carry out the assigned odd jobs!
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 begins 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.
The receiver or recipient is unmindful of it since she or he is always longing to serve the Holy Masters only.
The most incredible plans of God are manifested through such sublime mediums because they have perfected the mind to always be agitation free.
The thread between God and such celibates or Brahmacharis never breaks; the messages are flowing uninterruptedly for humanity’s welfare.
Silently, gently, tenderly the messages and welfare work goes on day and night tirelessly while the world sleeps or snores.
The mind or mana of such Brahmacharis is forever in Brahma, Chetna and Brahma Prakash, Brahma Anand and the light never extinguishes!
However, this state of awareness is not for all as no one has practised 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, sukshma and kaaran shareer.
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 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 mind or mana is divided roughly into three sections-lower, middle and top.
On top is the recording of the current or present ongoing activities happening to us.
They are recorded by our senses and interpreted by the everchanging mana or mind.
The recording is first in the senses, then in brain, sometimes called mind, and later in the body of the recipient and finally in mana or manas.
“But Rishivar, I interjected, “You have taught me that the mana is a separate entity while brain is separate and physical in form.
There is light in excess in some areas like the heart, brain and in Kundalini or naval area in someone.
And if the individual has made excessive spiritual progress, in that specific individual there is more light near the heart.
The minds of the rishis or sages are extra ordinary but they like to hide their personalities and stay in seclusion.
You have told me so many more secrets of extra ordinary humans or enlightened beings which I should never divulge to all since they are excluded from it.
It was only you who could answer me in wholesome and copious manner to my very old lingering question.
More than thirty-five years ago, I had asked this question in a big gathering of aspirants and you already know of it.
Prior to that, I read many books to hunt and know in detail about the so-called mind or mana.
This is a very intriguing and troublesome question since we all are suffering in so many ways.
All the holy scriptures like the Bhagwat Gita and Vedas clearly point out that one must control the mind to end the suffering.
I have always questioned right from the beginning- Where is my mind, how can I address it and put it in tight reins?
The brain is made of countless cells, how can the physical in nature thing and protein made cells guide or misguide me?
This means that the brain and mind are two different things, one is brain which is the master and guide of the body.
And the other is an entity which is invisible yet very prominent and forceful is its personality.
I can develop my brain with good food, exercise, sleep and mental, creative as well as other variety of exercises.
But where is my mana, the so called manas in scriptures? Where to find it? Where is its placement or location in myself?
In the past many years in my wonderful meditations beginning from Pondicherry onwards until now.
You have been very silently, sometimes without my even being aware have been sending out rays of your mental powers.
And powerful vibrations of highest kinds to transfer your brilliant knowledge slowly to me.
I am your best recipient of this stellar collection; I have received colossal divine knowledge from you.
Anyhow, I shall never tell the world about it in detail; they must earn it with their own hard penance.
Whatever God wants the world to know shall be revealed but only with your consent and agreement.
God has decided to tell the world about his hidden, brilliant children who did excessive penance in ancient times.
Kindly break your long silence Maharishi and tell the world something at least by which they shall be enriched forever.”
Two days went by but no words spoken by him; I decided to leave the subject where it was.
Then on an auspicious day of twenty-eighth October 2016’s afternoon, such plentiful peace rays fell all over my inner being.
An exclusive period of deep silence captured me, ah! peace in entire body and I went into very deep trans and further slipped inside.
I very easily knew it was him now who was telling me those further mystic revelations and I understood that it was time to now tell about the puzzling mind to you.
Bogar Rishivar- “Since God is very pleased with you for all the sacrifices you have made to serve us.
It is you in the history of mankind who will get the privilege of researching about mana and telling the world what it really is.
Since so many centuries, no one has made any research in what is mind, how does it work and where it is located.
Some modern researches has been done by doctors in brain but they are not rishis who have the third eye and vision divine!
“Mind and body are separate, in body is the brain which you call mana or mind erroneously.
Mana is in the subtle body though temporarily situated in the physical body when you are alive, but never inside it.
Its place is near the heart; it constitutes of ethereal layers and is made by food and your thoughts.
It is an instrument to feel, perceive, and even guide and is a force that is to be reckoned with if it is fully revived!
Do not be confused with these two terms, mana and mind, though they look alike but are so different and never one.
The people in the world are so muddled, they do not know what is mana or manas in Sanskrit.
There are two very distinct units, one is the visible brain or the supposed mind and the second is manas or mana.
Both look same but are never one because the first one is brain, the nervous system seated in the skull.
I pondered and interjected to enrich the conversation by asking a fair question without compromising on the sage’s honour and respect.
I politely questioned, “It is these cells in the brain which get connected and perform actions and our body functions properly.
How come that is not the mind or manas since it is the primary source of motivation and initiation?
All our life we all have understood that the mind is the brain and it is the mind that rules the body and also us.”
Bogar Rishivar– “God has kept this most intriguing fact hidden and very challenging to search and know until now.
From time since man came to be born, he did not know if there was any special power hidden within.
Which if tapped and developed in special ways could be resourcefully triggered and harnessed for optimum.
Only some millennia ago, some wise men went deep inside themselves by going into tranquil forests to research.
Silence taught them that peace within was so necessary for living and the ever-changing world was so ephemeral.
They found that there was a special source inside them which was a store house of incredible powers.
They shut out from the world and maintained silence for many years until the doors began to open.
They also stopped their unnecessary thoughts and stopped its wandering and made it more concentrated and linear.
They found that there is a place near their heart which first gets stimulated and stirs.
From there the vibration reaches the top of the head and a series of activities are undertaken after that.
This means that there was an initiating power, a motivating power which germinates from a source which they termed ‘manas’
‘Manas’ was a word which was close to ‘maanush’ or human being and ‘maanush’ stood out from animals and inanimate things.
First comes the vibration or ‘tarang’ in manas, through very small and through very fine nerves, the vibration is transported to a specific part of the brain.
The brain is like a machine which responds to commands or orders from yet another source or else who can make your brain function?
The ‘mana; first decides by its will power that it wants to do a particular action and wants to get it translated into reality in physical world from abstract.
The brain and the rest of the body get electric currents to start up and the parts of the brain from specific quarters are ready to answer!”
I was stupefied, I was awestruck, I was thrilled and I won’t be shy to tell you that I was nervous as well while I was writing all this.
If you are asked to do landmark actions in human history, who will not get nervous and edgy?
Turning the wheel around and creating new records are not only fascinating but are full of responsibilities and labour.
Honour and fame is not the goal, the aim is to correct the long stored records of human spiritual endeavours and the mind!
Bogar Rishivar– “The mind will be called mana and brain mastiksha by me to remove all your doubts.
Mana and mastiksha or mind and brain respectively are interrelated, are two very different identities.
Very intriguingly, there are three segments or levels in the mana –sthool, sukshma and kaaran.
Sthool means physical, sukshma subtle and kaaran causal-sthool concerns the physical realm, sukhsma subtle and kaaran causal realm.
The mana can be in three stages- the state of being in the physical world called sthool or physical.
It can next go a bit inside and enter sukshma or feeling, perceiving state and lastly it can go to its foundation- the kaaran or ego state-the ‘I am’ state.
Beyond these three states is shunya 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.
Though one unit, functions of levels are different because time, one’s will power and intensity also matters in its composition.
The mana is made of fragments of thoughts or sankalpas, imagination, ideas, creativity, will power, assumptions and a lot more.
It is like very thin shreds of thread which are not visible but the colour, texture, design of the cloth is so apparent.
The mind or mana is one unit though, but in fact it is a vast collection of many experiences, actions, resolutions and wills of humans.
It is the biggest power that any human can possess if harnessed and developed and retained well in multiple lives!
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 listen to me very carefully if you wish to do the complete restructuring of your mind to get a new one.
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!
You are a tender soul my little girl and often wonder why are we always seeing so much unhappiness and grief and suffering?
What can be done to stop that and how can we bring more joy, peace and godly sensibilities?
In this time the Kaliyug era, maximum people are going astray and drifting; they seem to have lost control over their lives and are so disorderly.
I will tell you why all this is happening, it is you all who must find the answers to these questions in this elaborate rendition.
As you have already qualified all the requisitions my sweet daughter, I give you a bouquet of flowers as my gift.
I am satisfied with your hard work, honesty towards mankind, sincerity towards your sacred masters and family members.
You are a deserving candidate and my successor to this very hard to achieve sacred science and pious undertaking.
Only a part will be known to the world through you, rest of the science I shall impart to you exclusively individually.
The mind is a store house of rays of light composed at the first moment when an individual decides to enter a physical body.
Initially it is only and only rays of God’s light, energy, imagination or Kalpana, creativity and God’s power to think and propagate joy.
Slowly as delusion, the power of misconception and confusion becomes overwhelming, its gross element enters the first upper most layer.
If not removed, the dark matter particle enters the mind’s next layer and light ray is replaced by a dense particle of matter!
This was the first ever step when Atma became jeevatma and the mana, or mind a separate entity from God became two entities.
Over many lives, the mind became more matter and less Spirit as the three layers of mind were deeply dipped with thoughts of only matter.
The original state was lost to a new formed state of being and the new state brought along with it unhappiness, suffering and more complications.
All the three levels of the mind became permanent recipients of ignorance of God and God related subjects.
The main culprit in the corruption of the mind of today’s masses and public is the slow degeneration of sacred values and loss of virtues.
If the God ordained rules of rightful living and respect for sacred texts are forgotten by the individuals, they are sure to be doomed.
Human values are foremost values, God’s commandments in the sacred texts are the protectors of evils.
Human mind gets fully destroyed if it is not looked after its own wellbeing and its sanctity preserved.
If you wish to make your life and mind worth living and care to find out how from an ancient soul who never erred and always lived for God.
Take his very rich experience of knowing God to greatest heights and relive your life by following his beneficial advice.
Follow the holy scriptures, worship the wise sages, serve the saints, serve all humanity and take care of your family.
Consecrate this life in search of God and never allow your mind to again become restless, unhealthy and full of misgivings!!”
Hari Om Tatsat! Hari Om Tatsat! Hari Om Tatsat!
My request to all-Kindly read this post very, very carefully and slowly. It is one of the most challenging posts to compose. I am referring to part II and III only. The reason is-It was a very brief, lucid and abbreviated, neat post which I finished quickly on 26th October itself. Probably the first version was just for me. It was a difficult one. In the last two days, I was wondering if I should plead and ask the Maharishi to tell us more and explain exponentially. As it his nature to utter so little, God heard my dilemma and helped me out.
The poetry was elaborated and the present elongated version seems alright. Hope you can resolve many definitions of the mind or mana. You could also refer to Swami Shivanandji’s best commentaries on this subject in his book- Mind, its control and mysteries.
On spiritinlifewordpress.com like before, you will find all the three parts in one post. Those who wish to read at ease can access Facebook where three posts are published separately.
With this post, we conclude this series of 12 posts which began three months back on Fb. With God’s blessing, I could manage to do this assignment without any interruption. Hope they shall be used as a log or reference book whenever you need to consult for your personal spiritual endeavours on day to day basis. You may also please ask some questions or reiterate your resolutions by interacting on this platform. I shall be pleased to respond. Thank you.

Dear readers, there was one post on Face book on last Sunday, 9.10.16 which had part one only. Since the post was comprehensive, the complete detailed article on ‘The after effects of Meditation’ is pursued on WordPress blog today. It was 9th of 12 posts which are published every Sunday on Facebook mainly. It deals with-
What is our mind? How does it work? Who has the power to start or stop it?
What are its powers and how can we learn to bring it to its highest worth and power?
What training is required to control it? What foods make it healthy and robust?
How can we stop its degeneration and sliding down? Is it possible to remain eternally youthful and radiant?
Presenting the complete article now whose title is-The after effects of Meditation
Preface-Swami Shivanandji’s cosmic message coming in my meditation telepathically at dusk on 04.10.16 via this new post.
This post is also for your preparation of the Annual Meet and Workshop in Rishikesh, Nov 2016 and your consistent sadhana later on. The next 4 posts will be from Swamiji as our grounding and preparation for our higher studies for the Workshop and subsequent practice of our transformation. It is a long post which will be divided into 3 Parts-I, II and III. Part I is available on Facebook while the remaining parts will be available only on WordPress blog. In the previous post- https://spiritinlife.wordpress.com/2016/10/03/my-most-unexpected-communique-with-guru-gorakh-nath-ii-how-to-escape-further-bondage-and-suffering/
I had quoted from Swami Shivanandji’s book-Mind, its mysteries and control. They are basically nuggets of advance knowledge of ancient scriptures and have summaries of Vedantic knowledge. Hence, it has escaped the grasp of majority of readers. Some background of Oriental scriptures is necessary to understand the crux of the matter. Anyhow, do not be disheartened. Simplified version and elongated explanation is provided in the following article to help you understand this subject. The next four articles will be transmitted by Swami Shivanandji, after which I am certain you shall be able to access into the depths of the science and mysteries of the mind as well as into this article.
How to read these extra ordinary posts?
Read with a calm mind, read in parts, then as a whole and contemplate on the subject. After you have finished that, revise, recall and recapitulate your thoughts and synthesize the entire content in your mind as a summary. Apply it in your meditation and silence periods during the day or night. Study your mind, change your old way of thinking and replace your old style of thinking with right thinking, right attitude and right approach to every day situation. The old issues will resolve and the mind will become virtuous permanently.
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?
No one finds out about these matters, no one ever rejoices in sitting alone.
No person is happy in knowing about himself or herself more than the physical body.
No human being takes pride in finding out about the hidden secrets of God and his creation.
No one is interested in taming the mind and changing all past detrimental tendencies.
If this was so, man would have been a far better person than what he or she is presently.
There would have been so much love, happiness and bliss and we would not have disliked so many.
Compassion and understanding would have been in many people and the world more peaceful.
Peace of mind would have been in most people and mental diseases far less than today.
Majority of people would have meditated every day and done more actions of love and compassion.
Maximum people would have been quite tolerant and would have become happy to see others flourish.
Sufficient mental space would have been provided to others to breathe, live and grow.
Personal growth of others and progress in all areas would have been cherished and not thwarted by maximum.
If you are one of them who is a victim of this disease spreading everywhere you will know.
How much it stifles if others do not let you progress and make sufficient inner growth.
In spite of being very kind and understanding, majority of people in the world do not let you live in quietude and peace.
No matter how much you explain with patience, they will always trouble you so that they feel superior!
They do not know or wish to even go inside once to realize that their conduct and speech is so poor and mean.
Their actions so disturbing that nights and days are lost in your recovering and forgiving.
No matter how much you forgive them and overlook their mean behaviour, they have vowed never to improve.
Your prayers and good wishes never touch them because they are so embedded in viciousness and wickedness.
But God is always overseeing who is doing what and what is the intention of their surreptitious actions.
What happens beyond the physical realms no one can see or predict; what will happen tomorrow is a mystery.
God never allows the wicked to go on a rampage and override the fairness of God endlessly.
The punishment is already decided, it is only waiting for the right and fair time when they will be caught unexpectedly.
You must have a steady faith and not bother at all to revoke any relationship or show anger to any.
Maintain your calmness and always do kind and polite actions and keep a dignified speech.
No matter what they have done to you, it will be positively forfeited and you will be given justice.
They all will repent and cry when the final justice comes and they will have no recourse and place to go.
Meditation will make you more pliant, more tolerant, forgiving and more devout in your daily practices.
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 what is our mind? How does it work? Who has the power to start or stop it?
What are its powers and how can we learn to bring it to its highest worth and power?
What training is required to control it? What foods make it healthy and robust?
How can we stop its degeneration and sliding down? Is it possible to remain eternally youthful and radiant?
In the dense jungles of the mind, there is the Light of God hidden in it.
We do not know this because the dark cloud of our bad deeds hide it.
The layers of that dark cloud get intensified if we do not remove it by doing only good deeds.
Our past and future are dependent on how we perceive and how we like to perform our daily deeds.
Meditation helps the mind’s noise to fall quiet, it reforms the mind by showing the right attitude and action.
The side effects are none and after effects millions if you meditate you will everyday see.
Beginning from stopping the gnarling waves of stormy mind, the knots begin to open slowly.
Age old knots of complexities of the buried, distorted, conceptions and concepts are torn apart with the rays of Light.
When the knots untangle gradually, there is serenity in the mind and there is prolonged, deep sense of rest and relaxation.
The body cooperates with the mind to make it more restful and calm and they both begin to co-ordinate in symmetry.
Various body organs fall in line with the will of God and they function in complete coordination and tethering.
Mind, body and the Soul slowly come together and become one unit and function as a united unit.
The alignment of the united unit consisting of mind, body and the Soul if tuned in with the will of God.
Brings about ample changes in yourself if you record it daily and allow yourself to live with the will of God.
The body was never yours in the first place please remember, such a thought in your meditation will break the platform on which you stand feebly today.
In meditation we must separate the body and the mind and allow Soul to manifest and shine in us as Light of God.
The illusionary ego is the foundation on which all humans build their castle of dreams and get deluded.
That must be broken and demolished so that space is created in the mind for the rays of Light to come in.
In meditation you must sit down to demolish all useless thoughts and counter thoughts which are bugging and detrimental.
You should bring in loving, philanthropic, noble and egoless ideas and concepts to show true Self that you are.
By doing so, the dust of the dark cloud in your mind will dissipate, the mind will focus on divine subjects and plans.
You will stop doing those actions which are not in your favour and were bringing havoc in your lives.
You will never visit those alleys which were dark and dingy and stopped you from doing noble things.
Your mind will brighten with meditation and you will always feel happy, cheerful and enthusiastic.
Day by day you will begin to connect with the Universal Mind since you will become a proficient practitioner.
Your days will be full of selfless actions, you will get sleep which will make you conscious of your deathless Spirit.
Your body will become your servant and will serve night and day without getting any fatigue.
Your mind will fill up with fresh, constructive and innovative ideas which come straight from the depth of God’s own wish.
The mind, I shall tell you now and it should forever be remembered, is a portion of Universal Supreme Consciousness.
God made man in his own image and wished him to go in the world to enjoy its magnificence, beauty and harmony.
Without attachment was the condition; but God also made his creation and world with its characteristics of expansion and extension.
The mind should never have been either attached or dispersed in the first place because that is the point from where the story spoils.
The mind’s characteristic is to flow typically downwards and outwards and never stay in one place or corner.
It can hold unlimited images, sounds, speeches, smells and sensations of various types of touches.
It can always review back and forth and evaluate itself but only if you have a desire to do so.
Evaluation, reasoning, logical conclusion, segregation of information, alignment of information and deductions.
As well as various emotions are displayed, screened and processed in the mind without any mistake.
The brain cells when broken by some accident or injury can be again repaired and re-joined to other cells and pathsways to continue functioning.
It can perform daunting and extra ordinary tasks and can acquire unusual dexterity in recreating our destiny.
Each cell of the brain like other part of the body, can be made weak, medium or hefty and healthy.
Our mind can be made of different types and can make us do anything we demand from it.
It can go back in time backward and forward and can recall so many of our past lives and its joys and horrors.
The mind can perform any new skills, we can adapt to any new situation if we want and agree to it.
The mind’s powers are so many; none of us have really explored or have known from saints or exalted Seers.
The mind will help you to use your intelligence and wisdom to choose and select the virtuous things.
The mind has also the qualities to imagine, visualize, memorize, to strive and to organize till the last details all inputs and stimuli.
It can record anything and everything till the last detail and does not forget anything unless you wish it so.
All the recordings are done by each cell in the brain and meditation can spark off additional power for only good things to be retained.
Like a jungle of roads and inroads of a super highway, like the complex network in the sky.
The mind can make connections with each road or lane of the nerves which are mainly pathways.
From nerves to nerve cells connection are made inroads to store information in the cells of the brain.
The more cells any human has, the more information capacity of storage one can have.
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.
For this you must have regular hours in daily life, cure all your mental diseases, must rest and sleep enough.
You should have only foods which are fresh, well cooked, soft and tender and loaded with all vital nutrients.
Water, sunshine, sufficient oxygen, air and space and other elements are mandatory to grow those special cells.
Proper blood circulation, cleanliness, hygiene, fitness and exercise will promote progress and growth in your overall development.
Include enough raw foods, vitamins, trace elements like copper, boron, magnesium and potassium and all that.
Fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, dry fruits and salads are mandatory for brain’s growth and increment.
If food, exercise, sleep, sufficient water and sunshine and exercise are also taken care of.
Each day, the mind will show tremendous sparkling and prosperity in all areas of its progress.
Apart from this, a few hours of maintaining silence in a day or at least a week.
Keeping noise and people away, and meditating on spiritual subjects and ruminating.
Will take you to unprecedented heights of spiritual gains and mental prosperity.
And give you unprecedented joy, health and goodness and also a chance of face to face with the Light Masters and their divinity.
You must meditate every day; it is mandatory for all human beings for it brings in our lives abundant, lasting peace.
Peace was begot naturally by man in ancient times, he did not have to try so hard to achieve it.
However, today we are in modern world where we have become, greedy, restless and very competitive.
We must go back to ancient times in our mind but we cannot do so in physical body.
We must retrieve our lost happiness and joy and peace which was so natural to earlier people to achieve.
We must meditate somehow by eliminating all unproductive activities from our life and being contented.
We must realize ourselves this time at least, we have lost so much time and energy in trivial and wasteful activities.
The after effects of meditation are countless, you will agree with me all the more if you control your mind and put it on God eternally!!
**Other helpful books by Swami Shivananda for your reference-
This post’s title is not very apt since you will not find any description about Guru Gorakh Nath. On the contrary, it explains terms which were either mentioned in the glossary in the last post or explains many important terms which are used in the last part especially post no. III.
Since Guru Gorakh Nath’s written text is not available, I am taking the help of Swami Shivanandaji’s book- Mind its mysteries and control. Through these quotes, you will be able to make further advancement in your cleansing process by removing very old, buried habits and irrevocable old patterns.
