31-51. In this whole Universe, whoever he may be, all are incapable of any action if he be
deprived of his force; what more than this, if S’iva be deprived of Kula Kundalinî S’aktî, He
becomes a lifeless corpse;

Then he is to make his Chitta and Prâna void of any worldly thought, or any
worldly support and to offer oblations to the Eternal Brahmâ through the mouth of Kundalinî
(the Serpent Fire.) Next, within his Nirvikalpa mind, by means of Samâdhi,
be should
meditate own Self, the Mahes’varî Herself by his consciousness.

 

“In My last lectures, I’ve told you how Christ was created first in the heavens. In the Devi Bhagavat – if you read that – He was created as Maha Vishnu and it is mentioned very clearly that first He was created as an egg. It is written in this book, which perhaps was written 14,000 years back.

I think (the leader) will read it out to you later on about what is written about Christ in Devi Bhagavat. This book was written about 14,000 years back by Markandeya. So, imagine 14,000 years back! He knew, being a seer, just like Blake, what was going to happen when Christ was to come. But He was called as Maha Vishnu.” – Shri Mataji

 

VISHNU – TATTWA * (Principal) March 5, 2010


This article comes out of a conversation Dr.Rustom had with Shri Mataji, in London, in which she wondered why Sahaja Yogis are not more blessed by Shri Lakshmi.

They say that the 1000 heads of Lord Shesha hissing above Lord Vishnu represents the constant mental activity, a brain constantly trying to sustain and balance the world. Lord Vishnu is Vishwapala and the Lord of the Sushumna Nadi. He is the essence of the nervous system controlling all the different angas or limbs of the Virata as the nerves penetrate every last, minute portion of the body, so he permeates every last portion of the Virata and, like the nerves, receives, transmits, and integrates information.

All the great charkas, and nerve plexuses are placed ultimately in the Sushumna and it is He who, in various forms, and using various powers, controls them. In the Nabhi, the Void and Swadishthana, in the Anahata, the Vishuddhi and eventually as Maha Vishnu, the Agnya and the two cerebral hemispheres. He is the Sukshma Sukshnottama, that penetrates the deepest levels of the Sushumna – the Brahma Nadi and it is through His Grace, by the ascent in the Brahma Nadi that we get and give realization.

Hence He is the coordinator and there is no detail too small to escape His attention – by Him the beggar is fed and sustained, the family and planetary horoscope of every birth is approved and arranged, marriages take place etc. In a sense He is the great bureaucrat organizing every aspect of the universe.

If we were idle or inattentive for one moment, think what the consequences would be; He is the one who, in constant ‘Leela’ and ‘Maya’ maintains the creation and writes the drama. For without ‘Leela’ and ‘Maya’ there would be no creation and no drama, only Atma. It is He who stands in the middle between the Maya of the Adi Shakti and the pure witness of the Paramatma Shri Shiva Sadashiva neither one, or the other, connecting them both.

It is thanks to His sense of responsibility and detached balance from both left and right that we are sustained. Hence to develop the Vishnu-tattwa in one, one needs to be both responsible and balanced. It is very easy for a Yogi to say, “I am a Yogi, I am not interested in material things” and it is true that one should remain detached.

But yet Lord Vishnu is a far greater Yogi than most of us and yet through the nerves in the body of the Virata his energy flows to every minutest aspect of material nature – transforming, enlightening, and making all auspicious. So, while detached, one should pay attention to one’s sustenance, for, as realized souls, we are like the nerves in the body of the Virata and that enlightened energy that flows into matter through our attention can enlighten it, so we act as instruments of the Lord.

This is a very subtle point and one should not underestimate it, for the key words are detachment and responsibility; and there are many dangers for those not absolutely in the centre. If one is not detached there is no point pretending one is, for in the end one’s suppressed attachment and greed will rise up and hit one on the head when one least expects it. Rather one should acknowledge what one is and witness it.

We cannot fight ourselves, we can only leave it to the Kundalini and the Atma to work things out for us, by the constant practice of Sahaja Yoga shoe-beating, foot-soaking, Dhyana etc. and since it all happens automatically, there should be no room for ego intervention or mental activity.

Lord Vishnu is the one who oversees the four Ashramas or stages of life – and one of them, is ‘Grihastha’ or house-holder. For a man who is Atmasakshatkari and a realized soul – such a thing can be a great Tapasya but without the collective cannot survive and it’s evolution and the drama, which is the basis of the creation, is harmed. This drama is born of Divine Will and Desire, and therefore that is opposed.

In the West, one has an idea that ‘Grihastha’ and marriage are given to us to enjoy – and it is true that this is the outer manifestation – but there is a deeper hidden meaning:

that, by it we fulfill our duty to our God who has manifested as the Virata – so that inspite of being one with the Atma we accept the burden and responsibility of matter, to be one with Him and prove our Love and Bhakti for Him.

There is a very subtle and twisting play here, for, the sadhaka seeking the Atma gains it, but with it also matter – as tapasya this time and not indulgence. If one accepts one’s material responsibilities, then one has to go down into the world of filth and commonness – and our vibrations get spoilt. However, we have been given the capacity to cleanse ourselves and by doing so, we cleanse also that, from which we caught – and by doing so, we clear our Mother’s creation and, in some small part, repay to Her the enormous debt we owe Her.

If we are not prepared to face the world we go against the Vishnu tattwa, and His Shakti Shri Lakshmi forsakes us. Further, we deny the fact of our birth and material existence in this world gained through the grace and auspices of Lord Vishnu supported by Lord Ganesha. If we do not accept our responsibility to maintain our Lakshmi, it will be hard for Sahaja   Yoga to penetrate the material universe, for who will build the Ashrams and hold the programs?

Often in Sahaja Yoga one is asked to pay for this and that and people grumble. But they see only the gross drama – not the deep subtle meaning: that one is being asked to pay attention to the Lakshmi Vishnu tattwa so that the Virata can be enlightened by the enlightened Atmas we all possess by Shri Mataji’s grace.

It is a very small thing we are being asked for, to help enlighten our Mother’s universe. The attacks of left and right that endanger this are familiar to all- and it will not elaborate. But we should know that the Lakshmi of Sahaja Yoga is our responsibility, not our Mother’s. We should shoulder the burden, not our  Mother – and we should find ways to work it out somehow or the other. As I said, Lakshmi is a tapasya and we should not expect to earn money easily or effortlessly except by our Mother’s grace.

For the enlightenment to have meaning, we should enlighten the universe and enter gross matter regardless of the consequences for we are pure Atma.

We should not forget that our Mother, who is the Purest of the Pure, took birth in the darkest night of Kaliyuga to help us, and we should now stand by Her side and fight it out. Let us hope we can all work it out.

Jai Shri Mataji!

 

HOW CHRIST WAS DESCRIBED IN “THE S’RIMAD DEVÎ BHÂGAWATAM” March 22, 2008


mahavishnu.jpg

The S’rîmad Devî Bhâgawatam describing Christ as “Mahâ-Visnu”.   

“The egg (born of Mûla Prakriti) that was floating in the waters for a period equal to the life period of Brahmâ, now in the fullness of time separated into two parts. Within that egg there was a powerful Child, lustrous like one thousand millions of suns.
This child could not suck mother’s milk, as it was forsaken by Her. So being tired of hunger, the child for a moment cried repeatedly. The child that will become the Lord of countless Brahmândas (universes), now an orphan having no father nor mother began to look upwards from the waters.
This boy came to be denominated afterwards by the name of Mahâ Virât, when he became gross and grosser. As there is nothing finer than radium so there is nothing grosser than Mahâ Virât. The power of this Mahâ Virât is one-sixteenth of that of S’ri Krisna, the Highest Self.
But this boy, (born of the Prakriti Râdhâ) is the Sole Stay of all this Universe and he is denominated by the name “Mahâ-Visnu”. In his every pore countless universes are existing. So much so that even S’ri Krisna could not count them”. – THE NINTH BOOK, Chapter III
