HOW I FEEL AFTER THE KUNDALINI IS RAISED? March 21, 2008


child.jpg

After the initial raising of the Kundalini (self realization) you may feel many things.  
You will likely feel some tingling or numbness on the fingertips.  As the Kundalini rises
it informs you through your central nervous system if there are any blockages on
your chakras.  See the section on Chakras to find out more information on the
chakras.

It can be felt as a cool breeze in the palm of your hands or you may feel a slight
coolness at the top of your head.  It also starts a flow of divine grace inside us.  For
the first time we can feel the presence of the divine. It purifies the attention of the
person and establishes this awareness in the state of meditation.  You may also feel
some heat – this is the Kundalini cleaning some obstructions on your chakras – it is
not painful at all.
The Kundalini knows everything about you.  Whatever chakra she touches, she
knows what is wrong with that chakra before hand and she adjusts herself fully so
that you do not get a problem by the awakening.  If any chakra is constricted, she
waits and goes on slowly opening that chakra.

KUNDALINI March 18, 2008


kundalini-precolombiana-indigena.jpg

‘Kundalini is one of the greatest energies. The whole body of the seeker starts glowing because of the rising of the Kundalini. Because of that, unwanted impurities in the body disappear. The body of the seeker suddenly looks very proportionate and the eyes look bright and attractive and the eyeballs glow.’
– (Gyaneshwari, Chapter VI).

For the first time I had heard about Kundalini 25 years ago. According this book this power is residing in every one of us in dormant state. There were no any instructions how to awake this Kundalini power.  
At May 25, 1990 I was invited to Sahaja yoga program.  Sahaja Yoga is a unique method of meditation based on an awakening that can occur within each human being. Through this process an inner transformation takes place by which one becomes moral, united, integrated and balanced. One can actually feel the all pervading divine power as a cool breeze, as described in all religions and spiritual traditions of the world.
Kundalini is the power of pure desire within us, a motherly and soothing spiritual energy which lies dormant at the base of the spine in the sacrum bone.  Kundalini is a Sanskrit word meaning coiled up likes a snake.  The Kundalini is a primordial energy – a living energy that is completely pure and immaculate.  It cannot be stained or tarnished.  This Kundalini energy lies dormant until it is awakened by a process called Self-Realization.  Self Realization is the awakening of the Kundalini through the central channel, piercing through the six chakras above the sacrum bone and emerging at the top of the head (fontanel bone area) as a gentle “fountain of coolness”.
The Kundalini gives us the connection to the divine all pervading power.  She is the spiritual mother of each and every one of us, who nurtures and energizes our spirit.  She has always been with us and gives us the capacity for love and compassion.  She emits the impulse to search for something higher, for spiritual seeking.  She generates the power of pure desire – the power to evolve and to become one with the spirit
When the Kundalini rises, she awakens the spirit which is located in the heart.  When she touches the center of the Sahasrara Chakra we are bathed in vibrations.  Then the awakened Kundalini helps establish the sovereignty of the spirit over the different aspects of the subtle being and of our life.  As you experience the Kundalini raising it will point out the problems of your chakras and you feel it on your central nervous system as a tingling on your fingertips.  The Kundalini nourishes any of our chakras which are out of balance and corrects them.  When the chakras are clear enough for the Kundalini to rise without obstacles, we can feel the peace and enjoy thoughtless awareness.

CAN WE FOLLOW CHRIST?


last_judgment_christ_condemns.jpg

Can we fulfill the words Christ?  So far I am not familiar with person who can comply with these words.

27 “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery. 28 But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell. –(NKJV)
 

DAY OF WRATH March 16, 2008

Verdi’s Requiem

Dies irae

Eternal rest grant them, O lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
A hymn becometh Thee, o god, in Sion,
and a vow shall be paid to Thee in Jerusalem;
o hear my prayer.
all flesh shall come to Thee.
Eternal rest grant them, o Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
Lord have mercy on us,
Christ have mercy on us,
Lord have mercy on us

Tuba mirum

Wondrous sound the trumpet flingeth,
Through earth’s espulchres it ringeth,
All before the throne it bringeth.
Death is struck and nature quacking,
All creation is awaking,
To its Judge an answer making

Liber scriptus

Lo! the book exactly worded,
Wherein all hath been recorded,
Thence shall judgement be awarded.
When the Judge his seat attaineth,
And each hidden deed arraigneth,
Nothing unavenged remaineth.

Quid sum miser

What shall I, frail man, be pleading?
Who for me be interceding,
When the just are mercy needing?

Rex tremendae

King of majesty tremendous,
Who dost free salvation send us,
Fount of pity, then befriend us.
.

Recordare

Think, kind Jesu, my salvation
Caused thy woundrous incarnation;
Leave me not to reprobation.
Faint and wary thou has sought me,
on the cross of suffering bought me,
Shall such grace be vainly brought me?
Righteous Judge, for sin’s pollution,
Grant thy gift of absolution,
Ere that day of retribution.

Ingemisco

Guilty now I pour my moaning,
All my shame with anguish owning;
Spare, o God, Thy suppliant groaning.
Through the sinful woman shriven,
Through the dying thief forgiven,
thou to me a hope hast given.
Worthless are my prayers and sighing,
Yet, good Lord, in grace complying,
Rescue me from fires undying.
With Thy favoured sheep o place me,
Not among the goats abase me,
But to Thy right hand upraise me.

Confutatis

When the wicked are confounded,
Doomed to flames of woe unbounded,
Call me, with Thy saints sorrounded.
Low I kneel, with heart submission,
See, like ashes my contrition,
Help me in my last condition.

Lacrymosa

Ah, that day of tears and mourning!
From the dust of earth returning,
Man for judgement must prepare him;
Spare, o god, in mercy spare him.
Lord, all pitying, Jesu blest,
Grant them Thine eternal rest.
Amen.

Offertorio

Lord Jesus Christ, king of glory,
deliver the souls of all the faithful departed
from the pains of hell, and from the deep pit.
Deliver them from the lion’s mouth,
lest hell swallow them up,
lest they fall into darkness;
and let the standard bearer, St. Michael,
bring them into the holy light.
Which Thou didst promise of old to Abraham
and his seed.
We offer Thee, o lord,
a sacrifice of praise and prayer;
Accept them on behalf of the souls
we commemorate this day.
And let them, o lord. pass from death to life.
Which thou didst promise of old to Abraham
and his seed.
Deliver the souls of the faithful
from the pains of hell.
Let them pass from death to life.

Sanctus

Holy, holy, holy,
Lord of hosts,
heaven and earth
are full of thy glory.
Hosanna in the highest!
Blessed is he that cometh
in the name of the Lord.
Heaven and earth
are full of thy glory.
Hosanna in the highest.

Agnus Dei

Lamb of god,
who takest away the sins of the world,
Grant them rest.
Grant them eternal rest.

Lux Aeterna

Let eternal light shine upon them, O lord,
with Thy saints for ever,
for Thou art merciful.
Eternal rest grant them, O lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them

Libera me

Deliver me, o Lord from everlasting death
on that dreadful day,
when the heavens and the earth shall be moved.
When thou shalt come to judge the world by fire.
I quake with fear and I tremble,
awaiting the day of account and the wrath to come.
That day, the day of anger,
of calamity, of misery,
that great day and most bitter.
Eternal rest grant them, o lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
 

 

THE BLIND MEN AND THE ELEPHANT


elephant.jpg

John Godfrey Saxe’s ( 1816-1887) version of the famous Indian legend

It was six men of Indostan
To learning much inclined,
Who went to see the Elephant
(Though all of them were blind),
That each by observation
Might satisfy his mind.
The First approached the Elephant,
And happening to fall
Against his broad and sturdy side,
At once began to bawl:
“God bless me! but the Elephant
Is very like a wall!”
The Second, feeling of the tusk,
Cried, -“Ho! what have we here
So very round and smooth and sharp?
To me ’tis mighty clear
This wonder of an Elephant
Is very like a spear!”
The Third approached the animal,
And happening to take
The squirming trunk within his hands,
Thus boldly up and spake:
“I see,” quoth he, “the Elephant
Is very like a snake!”
The Fourth reached out his eager hand,
And felt about the knee.
“What most this wondrous beast is like
Is mighty plain,” quoth he,
“‘Tis clear enough the Elephant
Is very like a tree!”
The Fifth, who chanced to touch the ear,
Said: “E’en the blindest man
Can tell what this resembles most;
Deny the fact who can,
This marvel of an Elephant
Is very like a fan!”
The Sixth no sooner had begun
About the beast to grope,
Then, seizing on the swinging tail
That fell within his scope,
“I see,” quoth he, “the Elephant
Is very like a rope!”
And so these men of Hindustan
Disputed loud and long,
Each in his own opinion
Exceeding stiff and strong,
Though each was partly in the right,
And all were in the wrong!
MORAL.
So oft in theologic wars,
The disputants, I ween,
Rail on in utter ignorance
Of what each other mean,
And prate about an Elephant
Not one of them has seen!
 

WHAT IS EVOLUTION? March 14, 2008


bee.jpg

There is a big diversity between perceptions of animals and human beings.  

 
If there is a flower the bee can sense only the aroma, the human being can sense the aroma and the beauty of the flower.
The enlightened soul can sense the aroma, the beauty and the vibrations/energy/ of the flower.
I think that this we can call it EVOLUTION.
 

The essence of YOGA March 13, 2008


roden.jpg

“Through study let one practise yoga. Through yoga let one concentrate on study. By perfection in study and in yoga the Supreme Soul shines forth clearly.” (Vyasa)

 
The most famous book as far as yoga is concern is Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras.
Patanjali set down his most famous words: “yogash chitta-vritti-nirodhah, “Yoga is the restraint of the modifications of the mind.”
For Patanjali, all these identifiable elements–thoughts, feelings, intentions, motives and desires (conscious and unconscious)–are chittavrittis, mental modifications which must be seen as hindrances to contemplative calm.
Can we say that we are in full control of our thoughts?
NO!
WHY?
Does it mean that our mind it is out of control?
The easiest way so far to control our thoughts is awakening of Kundalini.
When the Kundalini rises, these thoughts elongate. There is a space, very small, between the thoughts (vilamba), which spread out, and a state of complete silence is created. Then, we are in the present, but without thoughts, without any worry, without any anger and we stand in the present, which is the reality, and the past is no more and the future does not exist.
 
 

DID JESUS PAY? March 12, 2008

Do you think that Jesus Christ pay for his baptism?  

 
Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.
But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?
And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.
And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
Matthew 3 (King James Version)

How to Search for God March 11, 2008


god.jpg

To pitch darkness they go who worship the Unmanifested (Prakriti). To a greater darkness than this go those who are devoted to the Manifested (Hiranyagarbha).Isa Upanishad

The ancient Indian saints and sages were most advanced in their spiritual pursuit. They composed voluminous texts named ‘Vedas‘ in order to describe their spiritual findings and realizations. The cream of Indian spiritualism is found in the Upanishads, which are the last volumes of Vedas. It is believed that Vedas were composed from 1500 BC onwards and Upanishads were composed from 700 BC onwards. Upanishads are not only for Hindus, but for the whole of mankind.
Out of eleven principal Upanishads, it is accepted that Isha Upanishad is the oldest of all. Let us see what this Upanishad describes in order to search for God.
God resides in living beings. Isha Upanishad begins by describing that whatever living beings inhabit the world here, God resides in all of them. There are two things in the world — on one hand is life and consciousness and on the other, inert matter. God does not reside in the inert and unconscious matter or material world. The material world appears to exist for God or a divine truth exists. But God resides in the living beings in the form of life and consciousness.
The essence of a being is its life and consciousness. The source of life and consciousness in living beings is called self, soul or Atman. At death when Atman departs from the body, it remains behind as dead matter. Nothing can give new lease of life. So Atman is everything of a being and the home of God is Atman.
A self-slayer is one who does not realize Atman. Isha Upanishad describes self-slayers as those who do not try to realize Atman as the home of God. As a consequence after their death, they enter into a world of blind darkness. So without spending time, men should try to realize God within.
Turn away mind from outside. The consciousness of Atman is expressed and felt in the mind. The nature of mind is to move fast. Sometimes it moves, sometimes it is static; sometimes it is far away, sometimes it is very close. This mind is the heart of all. So in order to realize Atman, one has to turn away one’s mind from the outside world and concentrate it on Atman.
All souls are one. One who sees all beings in oneself and oneself in other beings comes to know everything. Nothing remains undisclosed for him. He becomes omniscient. All souls are one and the same. One should not see differences between beings or between self and God.
Strike a balance between spiritualism and materialism – Isha Upanishad describes that those who worship false-knowledge (avidya) enter into darkness. In spiritual language, knowledge (vidya) means know-how about things which exist. In the world, only life and
consciousness exist. So knowledge means know-how about life, consciousness, soul and God. Conversely false-knowledge is the know-how about things which do not exist. Material world and worldly objects in reality do not exist. Knowledge indicates spiritualism, and false-knowledge indicates material science.
Upanishad further describes that by knowing the futility of false-knowledge, you can overcomes death, and by realizing knowledge, you get immortality. Death is equal to matter. So by turning away from the material world, you overcome death and get immortality. Since you have material body, you cannot turn away from the material world completely. So you have to strike a balance between the material world and life or between science and spiritualism. Progress on science and spiritualism should go hand in hand. Otherwise civilization shall be destroyed.
