Why you don’t initiate in Sri Vidya sadhana directly?

Guruma & Acharya ji,

I was searching over the internet for getting Sri Vidya initiation. I feel attracted to devi worship from long time. I came across your blog few weeks back. I want to tell you that I came across many sites which were readily offering initiation in Sri Vidya but only goddess knows why I was particularly attracted to your teachings. Through your blog I understand that you belong to Krama Sri Vidya tradition but after communicating with your team on mail I was told that i will have to go through few other initiations before I can qualify for Sri Vidya initiations. This makes me little disappointed.

My humble question is to give me clarity on what is the role of other initiations and why don’t you just initiate me in Srividya right away? I am 34 year old male living in Karanataka. If nadisuddi is the only precondition for getting initiation then i practice nadi-shodhana pranayama of Baba Ramdev regularly since last 2 years. I was also practising kapalbhati earlier but after reading your articles i have stopped it. Please guide.

Shivoham!

Beloved Krushna,

Through your question I would like to clarify doubts of many people who not only insist but quote to me that if so many people are giving Sri Vidya deeksha why do i not do so? Your disappointment is genuine but a Sadhaka needs to learn few things and one of them is patience. Hope you shall stay patient with your jignyaasaa and mumukshaa. If a practitioner manages to stay patient she/he shall grow beyond her/his imagination in Sadhana. Now to your questions and doubts.

SRI VIDYA INITIATION IS NOT A COMMODITY

Every spiritual practice has a standard way of its dissemination. For a seeker depending upon the condition of his mind (Moodha, Kshipta, Vikshipta, Ekaagrat & Niruddha) various types of initiations are devised by the Master. The common initiations are of the first two types (leaving the first one i.e. Moodha) of mind. The first or basal spiritual transmission is in the domain of matter hence ‘Material’. The second higher transmission is of ‘Energy’ and third transmission is of ‘Thoughts’. Real Shri Vidya sadhana begins at fourth level of mind.

Normal condition of a Sadhaka is in the first three categories only. In fact In these many years of teaching we have come across only one sadhaka who we can put in the Ekagrata mind category. If that person would have asked for it we would have initiated him in SriVidya directly. He was ready. He was not only ready but occasionally experiencing Turya-Sushupti and Turya-Swapna as well. Alas! He came, he listened and enjoyed our talks, kept coming for few months and drifted away. He was trying something else and he didn’t seem to have any inclination towards Sri Vidya Sadhana! Honestly speaking as teachers we did feel how mutual much loss it was but we principally we can NOT ask someone to take Sri Vidya deeksha even if that person is ready. He/She HAS TO request for it and as Teachers we have to take permission from MahaShakti!

This should answer your observations on why we do not place any advertising or invitations for the Sri Vidya sadhana for invitation would mean we are forcing (though subtly) our way of spiritual ascension on someone. Honestly speaking in our case with all our Gurus it was our humble persuasions and meek requests to them in every case. Furthermore when first asked our Gurus simply posed ignorant as if they heard the term Sri Vidya for the first time in their life!

REQUESTING FOR SRIVIDYA INITIATION IS NO GUARANTEE TO RECEIVE IT

I may not be liked for what I am saying here but the fact remains that any teacher who is openly offering SriVidya to anyone in the exchange of money is commiting a grave mistake. Because the sanctity of Vidya remains only till a Master gives it upon the instructions of MahaShakti and Gurupankti. Keeping the secrecy of the cult only this much can be said that there’s a definite process that needs to be followed by the Guru upon receiving a request from someone even if Guru feels the person to be right candidate for Vidya.

Also no seeker can ever buy or purchase SriVidya from a Guru. We have seen many seekers becoming adamant to the state of being a lunatic in their quest of Sri Vidya initiation. At least 2 such people came our way where they offered us few thousand dollars for granting them initiation but we could not. The reason: If someone is not capable he/she can not be given Shri Vidya initiation howsoever be the pressure upon Guru. It is clearly told in tantric texts “राज्यम देहि शिरो देहि न देयम् षोडशाक्षरी” (raajyam dehi shiro dehi, na deyam shodashaakshari)” – give away your kingdom, let your head be cut and be given in charity, but DO NOT GIVE shodashakshari – The sixteen lettered mantra).

NADI SHUDDHI IS NOT THE ONLY PREREQUISITE

A teacher has to assess a disciple on many levels including one’s inclination and samskaras. The state of mind, health of chakras, condition of nadis, level of prana and kama oorja, state of Tattvas, obedience and attitude as few things that are to be checked but the most important thing for which an aspirant is judged (evaluated) is one’s inclination of Sadhana in one’s previous births and one’s karmic baggage. A Guru out of compassion may not initiate someone in SriVidya for he knows it will be so very painful and terrible for the Sadhaka to shed away the karmic baggage in one lifetime. We have personally seen so many people suffering severely (almost unbearably) and incessantly in their life after choosing to follow the path of SriVidya.

Answer to your question about the importance of other initiations particularly in Tattva Shakti Vigyaan, Swar Yoga , Panch-Mahabhuta Shakti Kriya etc. lies in the fact that these are the practices that work on your chakras, mental and pranic capacity, one’s connectivity and synchronicity with the cosmic rhythms, tattva shuddhi, nadi shuddhi etc. Also during these few initial years of engagement with the practitioners (only if they don’t drift away or vanish in thin air) we are able to gain better understanding of their devotion, faith and discipline.

Here I must mention that authentic initiation in SriVidya means THIS is one’s last birth as an ordinary human being. Having received SriVidya one becomes free from the bondages of birth and death.

FAITH IN GURUS WORDS AND OBEDIENCE

Progress in SriVidya is so much dependent on maintaining the vow of secrecy and one’s Guru’s happiness that it would be unfair for a teacher to accept someone as a disciple fully knowing that this person may not be able to sustain his attention, faith, attitude of service towards the teacher. Some people are so shallow that they are unable to keep things close to their heart – everyone has to pass through this test. You would agree only by spending some considerable time with a person you can give such tests. It should be known that not maintaining the secrecy of mantra and ritualistic processes in Tantra practices is harmful to teacher and student both.

|| Vande Gurormandalam : Sa-Shaktikayai namo namah ||

A master is answerable and shoulders a responsibility of the Gurupankti i.e. the Siddha Gurus, Divya Gurus and Manav Gurus in the lineage. Therefore accepting people (disciples) arbitrarily in Vidya, without judging and seeking permission from them would not only be disobedience on the part of teacher but an utterly irresponsible action as well. This is yet other reason for not accepting people as disciples without judging them for few years.

Krushna, you are enthusiastic young man and I am sure while you wrote this mail to us you may have also searched over for other options as well. I hope and pray you are accepted by an able Guru soon. Let this journey be the unfoldment of Ma Bhagwati’s plan for you!

Wishing you all the success in your life

Can Stress Cause Shortness of Breath and Gout too?

Here’s a Conversation with Master with his advice on what to watch for whenever you have any physical symptoms of disease.

Dear AD sir,

I lead a sedentary lifestyle. I started doing Kapalbhati and did it for 3-4 days. Now I’m feeling shortness of breath, trouble sleeping too. I stopped doing it since. Will I recover from it on my own or I have to do something else to recover.
Plz do reply. 
Regards,
Raghu R.
Shivoham!

Dear Raghu,
Thanks for writing in. Your question on Master’s blog (https://agyaatdarshan.wordpress.com) has also been noticed.
Before we can forward your question to Acharya ji or Ma Shakti, would like to know more about you and your case.
Please elaborate on age, place of residence, previous kriyas/things done (if any), lifestyle, family history of asthma,
general routine etc.
In the service of divinity in you
Sarika
Thanks for replying mam!!
Plz bear with me while I try to elaborate my case in this mail-
I’m 33, a bachelor residing in Jaipur with my parents.
Since 2016 I’m facing some physical as well as psychological problems due to my own sedentary lifestyle and some family issues.  My physical problems started with Gout in right big toe in April 2016 and after that digestive and anorectal problems (Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Piles, Fistula) followed from which I’ve not yet recovered completely. Till now I’ve had testicle pain, back pain etc. in these two years. These physical as well as family issues lead me into severe anxiety and depression which I’m still fighting hopelessly, even quit my job 2 years back. The more I try to come out of this, the more I sink deep into it.
To overcome this, I started Anulom Vilom, Bhastrika 20-25 days back and Kapalbhati 3-4 days back(Now stopped everything). Total half an hour for all. Now I feel shortness of breath sometimes, don’t know whether it is because of Pranayama or my anxiety and depression.
My vital parameters like BP, sugar, blood tests etc. come normal and I don’t have any asthmatic in my family.
Plz help!!
Regards,
Raghu R.
——————————————————————————————————
Shivoham!
Beloved Raghu,
Your symptoms primarily indicate you are a typical case of anxiety and stress. You got your warning signals when that Gout developed but probably you could not understand it’s cause. There are sufficient reasons to believe that you were stressed much before Gout appeared.
Please understand that when you are stressed your system starts working erratically. Stress causes your body to deplete of some group B vitamins from your body. These vitamins are agents that remove excess uric acid from the body. In absence of such Vitamin supply the Uric acid starts getting accumulated at any arbitrary joint and Gout is developed. So you got Gout means you were already stressed.
You were treated for Gout but your problem was stress. In stress, your body releases cortisol a regulator hormone but too much of it creates havoc in your system. You may experience obesity, high BP, muscular inflammation and much more. The list is endless! In fact when under stress for longer durations your body doesn’t function at its 100% capacity.
It is also common problem for the people suffering from stress to have digestive tract problems. Piles, fistula etc. are all once again indicating towards the cause being STRESS! The shortness of breath is in all likelihood linked to your stress and not the Pranayama however my advice would be you stay away from all sorts of Pranayama except Yogic (Deep) breathing and bhramari. It is good that you have already stopped it. Wait for sometime it shall become normal albeit you have to learn to feel better yourself because no doctor under the sun can heal you if you stay stressed. Life is a gift, you are far better placed and have lesser difficulties than millions of others on earth so be grateful to Mother Divine.
My advice –
0. Get up before sunrise. Smile and be happy for being alive to see another day. Watch the sunrise for 10 minutes.
1. Walk 5 miles a day. Deep breathing for 5 minutes and bhramari for 5 minutes.
2. Drink 4-5 litres of water every day. For every glass of water you have to laugh for 40 seconds. Don’t drink unless you have laughed for 40 seconds before it.
3. Have sprouts and fruits in your breakfast.
4. Do not stay in home all day. Take up some social service/ do gardening or just visit any nearby school to offer your help.
5. Maintain a diary and write your progress every night before going to bed.
6. Chant this mantra 108 times a day “I am healthy & I am getting better.”
7.  Last but not the least –  If you need some medication please do consult a qualified doctor for proper supporting medication to pull you out of depression.
If you really want to recover, you shall follow the above advice and let me tell you it is very much possible. Once you are little better you can definitely learn Panch-Mahabhuta Shakti Kriya to accelerate your healing.
Get well soon.

Swara Vigyaan and Virtuous Progeny

Respected Ma,

I am getting married soon. And I want to have kids who bring happiness to us & the world. I know that the nurturing period do a great deal of things in the development of child’s habits. In addition to that I want to do things which cause the conception of a good offspring if there are any.

I heard that there are several rituals as per our tradition for getting an offspring who is physically healthy & pleasing to his parents as well as to the world through his deeds.

Recently I went through the book ‘Thirumanthiram moovayiram’, the treatise of Shaiva Siddhantha sect. In that book, they mention about the relationship between breath of couples during copulation & the physical-mental-spiritual aspects of the progeny. In some other books, I read about time also influences the conceived offspring.

Unfortunately the descriptions from the said sources are not clear & are incomplete. So kindly give knowledge for fulfilling my wish.

Thanks

Shivoham!

Dear Questioner,

Let me tell you at the outset that to be able to use this method you and your partner should be Swara Yoga practitioners!

It is easier said than done because many people just read the book and think that by following the rules shall give them desired result. It is to be noted that the couple should not only synchronize their biorhythm with the moon cycle through consistent practice but should also be able to recognize the prevailing Tattva in the particular Swara for it is not the Swara rather Tattva that rules the virtues your progeny shall have. An unfavourable Tattva during the process of copulation may lead to not only undesired (unexpected) but also lifetime disappointment.

Swara Vigyaan – The Ancient Science of Breath

Swara Vigyaan is a process, that can definitely help you manipulate and control the result you want. It also helps you understand how to maximize the chances of conception. Further if you practice Swara Yog  you enhance your potential in general, can control your temperament, heal relationships and all sorts of physical and mental ailments.

Those who have read Swara Vigyaan know that breathing through the left nostril is “Chandra Swara” or Ida Nadi. And when you are breathing through the right Nostril it is “Surya Swara”  or Pingala Nadi. There is this pattern that alternates between the nostrils and therefore during transition when we breathe through both the nostrils, it is called “Shoonya swara”  or Sushumna Nadi. This should happen every hour but for the most people (due to unsynchronized rhythms and malas in the body) happens quite irregularly. Sometimes early in the morning, sometimes after having meals or late in the evening or midnight.

Since left swara or Ida Nadi is ruled by the Moon it is cool, nourishing, fertile and feminine by nature. This swara rules left side of your body. In layman’s language during Chandra swara, the breath will be more dominantly flowing in the left nostril. Pingala Nadi is ruled by the Sun and is hot, pushy, cruel and masculine by nature. It controls your right side of the body. Opposed to Ida when Pingala flows, the breath will be felt more in the right nostril. When Surya and Chandra flow together we say that the Third Swara or Shoonya Swara is activated. In this phase we say that Sushumna Nadi is flowing.

Application of Swara Vigyaan – Virtuous Progeny

Although this may not help you in the current situation (due to lack of synchronization of your body rhythm not being in sync with the cosmic rhythm) as I have already described in the beginning of this reply but still to beget male progeny, the female should try maintain Chandra Swara all through. For this lying down on her right (arm) side shall be helpful. If Swara is already Chandra then this keeping this way is possible through this simple means. In simplistic language female should continue to breath through the left nostril. Please note the amount of physical and mental stimulation during the copulation is more than enough to trigger Surya in Female so easily. This is the reason why in the world more number of females are conceived. In fact there’s no harm in this preposition – It is mother nature’s way to keep the overall number of females more than males.

Further the male has to maintain Surya Swara and for this he should lie down on his left (arm) side. Although it is easier for the male to maintain Surya Swara because the process of coitus itself is act of Surya for males. Yet it is recommended to maintain this Swara throughout for him as well. It is assumed here that both have mastered the Swaras forehand or else it will not be possible to sustain the breathing through the right nostril. In modern science this would mean that Male’s Surya Swar will activate the Y-chromosome that is responsible for male progeny. Those who are desirous of female progeny, doing the opposite shall draw the fruit.

Also there is a way by which you can know whether your wish has been fulfilled or not. After delivery one should check the swara of the child (irrespective of male or female child). If the swara of mother and child are chandra then the child shall be intelligent, long living and give happiness & love to parents.

The above (maintaining Swara and therefore fixation of Gender) may even be possible but since you say that you want to have “offspring who is physically healthy & pleasing to his parents as well as to the world through his deeds… I want to have kids who bring happiness to us & the world” this is more dependent on Tattvas rather than Swara. For this I don’t think you are particularly interested in fixation of Gender… but virtuous offspring. It is really nice to see someone thinking like that and I congratulate you for your thoughts but unfortunately I do not have any off-the-shelf advice for the same; this recognition of Tattvas is possible only through sustained practice under the guidance of an able Swara Vigyaan Teacher. So as an intelligent person you would understand that it shall require dedicated and disciplined efforts.

Alternatively, if you want to try some other way then probably consulting an astrologer who is master of Panch-Pakshi Shastra can be of help. However neither I recommend not vouch for the success of that method for simple reason that despite giving you all the ‘favourable time slots’ based on the horoscopes of both the partners most of them shall ask you to use Swara Vigyaan techniques as well. Interesting! Isn’t it?

Blessings

What is Your Kundalini Type

|| Let the Kundalini Express it from your body ||

Dear Master,

I have read vividly your wisdom input about masturbation (all the 4 parts) and truly I am quite surprised how well the issues were addressed. All that you have said are true about my own experience. This is something that really messed up my life for so long until now that I realized. I practiced yoga for a while while much younger and then with life events I left it there.. I grew up in western culture.. But recently I just realized how hard it is after being steady in meditation, my sexual thoughts, fantasies become so strong in the morning while waking up to the point that my meditation is not quite focused and to the point that I cannot focus most of the times. I completely stop masturbating 3 months ago.. WITH GOD HELP THERE IS NO WAY I WILL GO BACK TO IT AGAIN. AS I REALIZED THAT MY LIFE CONSEQUENCES ARE JUST DUE TO JUST THAT. MY QUESTION IS SIMPLE WHAT CAN I DO TO TAME UP THAT ANGER (As you explained that after stopping masturbating, the anger becomes stronger and looks for something else in you with your frustrations).. CAN YOU PLEASE HELP?

Frank G.

Another question –

Hello sir pls help me pls pls pls😭 my question is that I have masturbated almost daily since I was 15 till 19…and I guess I have wasted lot of semen so my question is that have I losted many things !? Many energies ? Can I become enlightenment in this life…do I have that capability left inside me nowadays I feel a lot to of love towards god lots of love I cry in tears of ecstasy I want to know my true self and iam controlling my sexual drive quite well I don’t masturbate and I try to maintain brahmacharya in my life so my question is have I lost my semen to that extent that I cannot rise spiritually like Vivekananda , paramhansa yogananda…Ramakrishna paramhansa…😭 Pls help me I want to know the Brahma I don’t wanna marry or seek pleasure in impermanent things…

Shiv Dixit

Shivoham!

There are at least 30 questions that have been asked on Mail/blog/FaceBook Page about this particular issue of unwanted anger and irritability especially after you decide and willfully stop engaging in masturbation. Taking clue from this particular question of Frank I would like to incorporate all the points/questions/queries raised so far on this topic which I would prefer to call ‘Core Energy Management’. To be able to pick up a solution for yourself you should know which band of ‘inherent’ characteristics you belong.

Youthfulness is not only about chemically produced sense of vitality, it indicates the phase of life when energies of ‘expressed’ kundalini are pushing the mind and body complex to venture into creativity. Expansion means creation. A youthful body is simply most capable because it is that phase when its physical development has been almost completed (the body has mostly achieved its limit in growth) but naturally there is still some more ‘unused’ energy wanting to ‘express’ itself. How much surplus one has is not in one’s control because one gets this ‘gift’ based on one’s previous karmas however what one does with this surplus energy largely depends on what one focuses on, is intrinsically or gets trained in.

THREE MODES OF THE ‘EXPRESSED’ KUNDALINI FLOW

There are in fact 10 ways in which this ‘kundalini’ or surplus ‘youthful’ energy can channel itself but broadly we can categorize them in three major ways –

  • Horizontal Expression
  • Vertical Expression
  • And Rare type

Each one of these types have specific subtypes depending on what the individual framework (conditioning) for that person has been. Let me elaborate this.

THE HORIZONTAL FLOW OF ‘EXPRESSED KUNDALINI’

The Horizontal expression is all about expressing one’s characteristic qualities through one’s actions, speech and thinking. Here too you can have two possible outcomes.  1 – If you have been lucky to be brought up in an environment which not only instilled the ‘rights’ and ‘wrongs’ in your buddhi (knowledge coupled with intellect) you will see yourself engaged in ‘moralistic’, ‘structured’, ‘developmental’ actions which shall aim at overall ‘good’ of self and others. 2 – In the absence of a proper framework this Type of expression happens. In this case one will find one’s activities ‘immoralistic’, ‘chaotic or purposeless’ and ‘destructive’ for self and others in general.

Though it may be a type of flow that has been most common expression of inherent surplus energy in the ancient times in its purer form. The pure horizontal expression is devoid of kundalini sexual impetus however it doesn’t mean the physiological sexual urge will not be there. In modern times there are clear overlaps of Horizontal and Vertical flows creating a different collective progression of human consciousness. While the first Horizontal subtypes can be great scientists, writers, entrepreneurs, sports people, social workers, gymnasts, yogis etc. the others in this Horizontal FLOW group can become the opposites like a conman/conwoman, political leaders (especially the ones who have ‘self-serving interests’), dacoits, criminals, terrorists etc. This flow mostly works around Root and Sacral chakras with scant and occasional bursts through Navel chakra and others. Such people seem to be oscillating between chakras as well but their frame of operation is mostly around lower two chakras. As told earlier when there is horizontal flow – external environments, training, counseling and education govern the actions and resultant characteristics of the individual. A lot can be done here through proper conditioning and training.

The common (to both subtypes) signature characteristic of such an expression is that its strength decreases with time and therefore individuals with such expression pattern do ‘good’ or ‘bad’ (depending upon soundness of their samskara framework) only until there is physical youthfulness. As they age their motivation for doing (whatever they find themselves doing) tapers with time. At the age of 63 (+/- 7 years) they almost cease to express their good/bad qualities. Beyond this age they just retract to being an ordinary person with lots of thinking and talking about their accomplishments of ‘past’. Another emotional issue with such people are their being stuck in jealousy and greed. If such trend continues beyond this specified age limit it is mostly the compulsion of not having any other options of income for survival. Such traits are so very common among horizontal types and they can be changed from one sub-group to another by giving them adequate support, counseling, training and encouragement.

THE VERTICAL FLOW OF ‘EXPRESSED KUNDALINI’

There’s a saying in India ‘lakhon me ek (लाखों में एक). It has its english expression too that says ‘one in a million’. The phrase is so very relevant in this mode of expression as there are two directions in the vertical axis – Upward and Downward.

The vertical Up – It is rare a phenomenon to find people with vertical upward flow of ‘surplus kundalini’.  Truly this is a case of one in a million. Such people are naturally detached from materialistic desires, not longing for fame or power, disinterested in sexual activities. Such people are introvert and perennially in a state of seeking of knowledge. The desire for knowledge in this type is different from the horizontal types. While Horizontal types are interested in knowing about things, people, processes and reasons around them the upward vertical types are naturally inclined to discover ‘self’ and their inner world. Any and every thing that is not graspable by senses interests them. All the enlightened Masters (sadhana-siddha) had pure Vertical upward movement of expressed Kundalini surplus. Such types make brilliant disciples (irrespective of the field of expression) and teachers don’t have to put up hard labor to bring the best out of them. In some cases if this vertical movement finds prominent expression from any other chakra than the Crown – then the actions of such person in the respective field will have philosophical tint. Such people may rather be an ‘enlightened scientist’ than just being ‘enlightened’. For example if someone is expressing more from heart-throat – he/she might be engaged in writing poetry but more so in abstracts. These people are really sobre and nice ones having a pleasant personality but they are also a misfit in the social set-up.

The vertical-downward subtype – This category is also rare but not as much as the vertical up. Such people are animals of flesh and matter. Their life revolves around sex, sexuality and bhoga to the extent of self-destruction. They indulge in worldly pleasures helplessly and it is really difficult for them to come out of their perversions despite guidance and motivation being made available. Such people are the ones who can be seen making porn videos, even compulsive porn watchers, compulsive rapists and what we call sex pests roughly fall in this category (to be able to differentiate this type from ‘horizontals gone wild’ is little tricky and only someone with a perfected para-vision can tell the difference). Such people even when they age will not reduce their tendency to deeply entrenched in sex and sexuality. There’s nothing wrong about sex but when someone’s whole life is centred around lust and indulgence it is definitely a problem.

If someone is in the vertical mode, whether upward or downward then he/she can be assisted/corrected/changed by using only ‘Energy influences or psychic intervention’ because words and even actions don’t bring about any change or transformation in such people. Therefore healing, spiritual intervention instead of training and therapy works in such types. They are capable of touching the extreme either way.. an energy influence, a Guru is needed. Just as dacoit Valmiki or Angulimaala gets transformed into maharshi and siddha upon spiritual intervention without much of Guru’s effort. Although spiritual intervention brings about changes in every type but it must be noted even if spiritual intervention is there the process of transformation for Vertical types is far different from the ones having ‘Horizontal outflux’ of surplus ‘expressed kundalini’.

Vertical types are characterized by unwavering, persistent and steady enthusiasm throughout their lives. Their youthfulness of desiring doesn’t subside even when their bodies age. Their keenness and energies don’t taper as they age. Therefore such people if stuck in downward cycle shall not live long as they will destroy themselves too early in life by virtue of their overindulgence in bhoga.

There is one more type of ‘EXPRESSED Kundalini Flow’ that I shall discuss in detail about in some other post.

Frank, the ways to tame your anger are really simple. Let some experienced teacher decide the type of meditation for you instead you choosing it for self because when you shall receive the right technique and correct method of a suitable meditation that shall melt your anger away. Till then things which can help you are – grounding and alignment of thinking. When I say grounding I literally mean you working on the ground i.e. earth. Gardening, connecting with flora and fauna around you. Alignment would mean you spending time with wise and spiritual company. Make friends who are in to meditation, listen to the teachers and read good books. Finally two bonus techniques – Learn to laugh on yourself. If you were angry on anything or anyone… let that pass but later you must review your behaviour and should have a good laugh at it’s futility (your anger). Second – Keep a smile on your face.. always. Gradually it shall work and you will see it is really difficult to get angry while you keep the upward curve on your face.

Briefly to answer Shiv..  It is necessary to identify your type before you look out for solutions in a particular situation. If someone has been into the habit of masturbating – he/she will have to recognize his/her inherent pattern of ‘energy flow’. Your headache, anger and frustration or even the desire to quit material life; upon quitting this ‘pleasure seeking – Energy  expelling’ activity will be different. Your symptoms are unique and dependent on your ‘type’ therefore recognition of your own type is necessary. Once you know your type it will be easy to pick a solution from the available options because for every individual the ‘energy management strategies’ are different. Roughly speaking such overindulgence in expelling your energies at the tender age does affect your prospects however it would be unfair to say that there’s no hope of getting enlightenment for there are specific means and paths on which one’s Teacher can make one travel to unravel the ‘Truth’.

Shivoham!

क्या हो गया है हमारे बच्चों को??

मित्र !

ख़बर अच्छी नहीं है। रेयान इंटरनेशनल स्कूल, गुरुग्राम में एक किशोर बच्चे ने अपने स्कूल में होने वाली पेरेंट-टीचर मीटिंग और परीक्षा को टालने के लिए जो किया उसे जान कर भी अगर माताओं और पिताओं को अपने बच्चे में सिर्फ प्रद्युम्न (वह निरीह बच्चा जिसकी गला रेत कर स्कूल के बाथरूम में ह्त्या कर दी गई थी) ही दिखा हो तो कोई आश्चर्य नहीं होना चाहिए और फिर उनका खुद का बच्चा किसी का हत्यारा थोड़े ही हो सकता है। वो तो मासूम, भोला-भाला, संस्कारी और कोमल ह्रदय वाला ही होगा। आखिरकार बच्चे तो निरीह और मासूम ही होते हैं न?

और बच्चे मासूम क्यूँ नहीं होंगे? आज के सभी माताओ-पिताओं ने अपने बच्चों के बचपन को फलने-फूलने देने के लिए क्या कुछ नहीं किया है। टीवी, मोबाइल, स्मार्ट-फ़ोन, गेमिंग गैज़ेट्स, वॉकमैन, लैपटॉप, इंटरनेट, डीएसएल, वाई-फाई, ब्लू-रे, डोंगल, कार्टून नेटवर्क, शिन-चैन और क्या -क्या नहीं उन्हें दिया जिससे कि वो अच्छे से बड़े हो जाएँ इनकी बदौलत। बच्चे तो बच्चे हैं, पर क्या इतने बड़े होकर, ख़ूब पढ़े होकर भी नादान होने का अभिनय करते अच्छे लग रहे हैं आप? ज़रा रुक कर विचार कीजिए। क्या आप का बच्चा वास्तव में ‘प्रद्युम्न’ है या फिर आप किसी ऐसी अनहोनी के इंतज़ार में बैठे हैं जो आप के साथ-साथ सारे देश को दोबारा सोचने पर मज़बूर कर देगा कि ‘आज के हमारे बच्चों को हुआ क्या है?’

याद है आप को? जब शुरू-शुरू में दूरदर्शन पर शाम को फ़िल्मी नाच-गानों का वो कार्यक्रम ‘चित्रहार’ प्रसारित होना  शुरू हुआ था तो कैसे टीवी की दुकानों, घरों की खुली खिड़कियों के बाहर लोगों की भीड़ इकठ्ठी होकर रास-रंग के इस साप्ताहिक रात्रि-पर्व का मज़ा लेती थी। बेशक़ उस भीड़ में बच्चे कम.. युवा व प्रौढ़ ज़्यादा होते थे। अब प्यासे को कुएं तक जाने की भी ज़हमत नहीं उठानी थी  सिनेमा-हॉल घर के अंदर जो पहुँच गया था। टीवी के टिमटिमाते मेघों से मनोरंजन के व्यापारी फिल्म-निर्माताओं और निर्देशकों द्वारा प्रणीत नव-युगीन संस्कारों की फुहार में एक तरफ आज के माँ बापों की फसल तैयार हो रही थी और उनके बुजुर्ग गहरी साँसे भर-भर के चित्रहार को ‘चरित्र-हार’ का ख़िताब दे रहे होते थे। उस समय के बुजुर्गों की पीढ़ी जो मोटे-मोटे चश्मे लगाए गीता, रामायण, कल्याण, भागवत, कादम्बिनी और धर्मयुग बाँचते हुए अपने बच्चों की शादी और नाती-पोतों के आने का इंतज़ार कर रही थी; शायद सही थी जब उस पीढ़ी ने चित्रहार को चरित्रहार कहा। और तब भी जब उसने उस समय के युवाओं और बालक/बालिकाओं को यह कहा कि  “तुम लोगों को टीवी की बीमारी हो गई है। अगर यही सब नाच-गाना देखोगे तो अपने बच्चों को क्या शिक्षा दोगे। क्या उन्हें नाचने-गाने वाला बनाओगे?” हमारे बुजुर्ग सही साबित हुए। तब के ‘चित्र-हारी/डेबोनायरी’ समयांतर में अभिभावक बन ही गए और उनमे से ज़्यादातर अपने बच्चों और बच्चियों के अश्लील-कामुक नाचगाने को  देख-सुन ताली बजाते नज़र आते हैं। और दलील यह कि समय बदल गया है। बुजुर्ग और पुरानी कहावत ‘बोया पेड़ बबूल का तो आम कहाँ से होय’ दोनों सही थे। 

पर यक्ष प्रश्न यह है कि “आज के बच्चों को क्या हो गया है?” अगर कल के बच्चे और जवानों को ‘टीवी’ नामक सिर्फ एक बीमारी हुई थी तो बदले समय ने किसी को कहीं का नहीं छोड़ा। आज हालात सचमुच नाज़ुक़ हैं – क्यूँकि अब तो बीमारियों की संख्या और उनकी तीव्रता हद तक बढ़ गईं हैं और इलाज़ के बारे में सोच-सकने वाले माँ-बापों की हालत भी मरीज़ों से बेहतर कतई नहीं नज़र आती। रहे बुजुर्ग दादा-दादी, नाना-नानी तो उनका पत्ता ही साफ़ कर दिया शहरीकरण ने। बेचारे वो तो दूसरे दर्जे के शहरों और पिछड़े कस्बों में अपनी जिंदगी भर की कमाई जो उन्हों ने अपने इन्ही आजके माँ-बापों के भविष्य के लिए घर बनाने में लगा दी थी – उसी घर की चौकीदारी करते, अपने क्लास वन शहरों या विदेशों में बसे खुशहाल बच्चों के सुन्दर भविष्य व अपने नाती-पोतों को कहानी सुनाने के सपने देखते हुए व उनसे मिलने के कभी ख़त्म न होने वाले इंतज़ार की वास्तविकता से जूझते दीखते हैं। तो प्रश्न तो यह भी उठता है मन में कि ‘क्या हो गया है आज के माँ-बापों को?’ कहीं इन्ही की संस्कारहीनता, असंवेदनशीलता और अंधस्वार्थों के शिकार तो नहीं हो रहे आज के बच्चे?

कितना ही अच्छा हो कि बच्चे इंटरनेट, टीवी, व्हाट्सएप्प, विडिओ-गेम्स, स्काइप और हाइक मेसेंजर् पर अपने आने वाले जीवन का पाठ पढ़ें पर ऐसा हो कैसे सकता है। ये दरवाजे हमने खोले तो इसी लिए थे कि बच्चों की कल्पना की उड़ान को पंख लगादें पर ऐसा हुआ नहीं। कुत्सित, वासनापूरित, नकारात्मकता और अनजाने प्रतिशोध से भरे व्यवसायी लोगों ने इन्ही दरवाजों के आगे अपनी-अपनी दुकानें लगा लीं – इन दुकानों में शिक्षा, ज्ञान और संस्कारों के अलावा सब मिलता है – वो भी उत्सुक बाल-मन को लुभाने वाले सतरंगे लिफाफों में। कोई जिस्म बेच रहा है, कोई ड्रग्स, कुछ गेम्स के नाम पर हिंसा और कोई दोस्ती के नाम पर सेक्स-पार्टनर्स की दलाली। और तो और कोई अपनी सफलता इससे नाप रहा होता है कि उसका गेम खेल कर कितने बच्चों ने आत्महत्या की या फिर किस हद तक अपने माँ-बाप, भाई-बहन परिवार को नीचा दिखाया या कष्ट पहुंचाया। अब तो प्रश्न ही बदल गया। अब तो निश्चित ही पूछना पड़ेगा ‘क्या हो गया है आज के आदमी को?

यदि आप इस उम्मीद में इसे आगे पढ़ना जारी रख रहे हो कि इन प्रश्नो का उत्तर मैं देने वाला हूँ तो क्षमा कीजिये – पढ़ना बंद कर कुछ कीजिये। क्या आपने पूछा “क्या करें”? अरे! आप सचमुच इतनी समझदारी दिखायेंगे मुझे उम्म्मीद न थी .. लेकिन अब पूछा है तो उत्तर तो सुन ही लीजिए – मैं कहता हूँ  करना कुछ भी नहीं है , सब अपने आप ठीक हो जायेगा। आप तो बस अपने व्हाट्सप्प और फ़ेसबुक मित्रों को यह लेख फॉरवर्ड कर दीजिए और बस हो गया काम। आप के मोबाईल से निकला यह फॉरवर्ड-रुपी तीर परिवर्तन का शंखनाद है। सब हो जायेगा इसके बाद अपने आप। इतना ही पर्याप्त भी है। फिर इससे ज़्यादा कुछ करने का समय भी तो होना चाहिए और वो तो है भी नहीं आप के पास। सही है न?


अब ये पढ़-सुन कर अगर मुझे गाली देने का मन कर रहा हो तो जरूर दीजिए पर अपने बच्चों को अपने निकट बुला लीजिये और फिर उड़ेलना शुरू कर दीजिए अपने संस्कारों के उफ़नते सैलाब को मेरे ऊपर… खूब ऊँची आवाज़ में। संकोच मत कीजियेगा क्यों कि आख़िरकार अपने बच्चों को यह गाली-गलौज करना भी तो आप को ही सिखाना है!

शिवोहम!

Panch-Mahabhuta Shakti Kriya – It is taking me to Samadhi?

Ma Shakti & Acharya ji,

i am writing this mail to share one of my frequent experience and have some questions too. It has been more than 8 months doing the Panch Mahabhuta Shakti Kriya. i have experienced those kinds of changes in me which i could not expect to have come at the age of 45. Its powerful. It has been a wonderful wonderful journey so far and i couldn’t thank you more for bringing out this secret Tantra-Yoga practice in open for us. i did not believe panch mahabhut sakti kriya to be so so effective but after practice of only 3 weeks i knew it was the best of all. And i am saying so with my personal experience bec i took every single course in spirituality offered by every teacher around over last 15 years. i practiced each one of those for sufficient time and observed the impact. So, i know what other kriyas can do and how unique this tantric process PSK is. Thank you once again.

My question is precisely around my experiences. Initially when i used to sit for kriya i would find process getting completed within the stipulated period of precisely 20-25 minutes. i would feel extremely light and elevated after the Kriya. The clarity of mind and relaxed awareness continued the whole day. It was and still is the same but since last 12 days i am finding that when i sit in Kriya instead of 20-25 minutes it is taking more than 40-45 minutes. i stay aware of my being and probably sounds etc around me almost till the beginning of last phase of Panch Shakti Kriya but then it seems i lose the sense of time and i become unaware of things around me. The last leg of Kriya takes over my complete being. Although i am fully aware of the cosmic dance of light and sound within but no sense of outside world i guess. i am saying this because after coming out of that deep meditative state few times my daughter told me that she had knocked at the door a few times. But it is surprising to know i did not hear any sound. i bolt the door from inside when i sit in the room for Kriya.

Masters, i have no anxiety attached to this experience but wondering if Panch Mahabhuta Shakti Kriya is pushing me into some sort of samadhi? Can it lead to prolonged samadhi of few hours also? Please enlighten me and also can i put alarm of 25 minutes for it? i haven’t tried putting alarm as yet wondering whether it would be okay or not. Please guide me. One request i want to make, please tell me some method that regulates the timing not the experience bec that i don’t want to let go. Its pure bliss… thank you once again and forgive me to bother both of u with such a long mail.

a thousand times pranam”

Madhurima JS , Agra, India

|| Guruma Shakti Devpriya ji ||

Shivoham!

Dear Madhurima,

Needless to reemphasize that the Panch-Mahabhuta Shakti Kriya is powerful. Of course it is powerful process and it works with everyone almost from the very first time. I am not going to compare it or say things like it is ‘the most powerful’ kriya. It is for the practitioners to decide. Masters have given out so many processes that are not available for common people. Yes, you are right it was secret but not anymore. With the permission of Gurumandala few of the many secret processes have been gradually revealed over last few years and we as teachers and channels to this knowledge feel it must have to do with need of time and masses as for Masters always take right decision. It gives us immense joy to see these processes working through you.

TATTVA-SHAKTI KRIYA HAS CAPACITY TO TRANSPORT YOU TO THE TRANSCENDENTAL STATE

Your question is relevant and it is important for the practitioners to know what this simple looking Kriya can do. The Panch-Mahabhuta Shakti Kriya’s major work is in the domains of  Manomaya Kosha. Those who are familiar with Yoga, know that the long absorption of consciousness in an intention, process or object leads to pratyahara. In this state of pratyahara the mind stops processing the inputs from sense-organs therefore separates the practitioner from the external environment. What you are experiencing is a state of pratyahara and that’s why the knocks at the door etc. are not able to disturb your absorption.

Panch-Mahabhuta Shakti Kriya is such a beautiful process that creates instant balance in the Tattvic vibrations of the practitioner therefore reduces the payload of mental chatter. It is rare phenomenon to say and two things happen therefore. If your body and brain need rest you shall slip in the ‘induced power nap’ that is deep sleep. Even deep sleep is a state of ‘unaware samadhi’ and in this condition too the practitioner shall not be able to perceive/sense external stimuli.

Whatever be the case there is nothing for you to become wary of, rather it is that special sought after ‘state’ which most of meditators aren’t able to achieve. To be sure you don’t slip in ‘induced nap’ take good sleep and let your body feel rested.

MAKE PROPER INTENTION BEFORE YOU BEGIN

Madhurima, one thing you can be sure of with Panch-Mahabhuta Shakti Kriya that it shall NEVER draw more than you intend. If someone is wanting to just relax and become stress-free through the practice of Panch-Mahabhuta Shakti Kriya, it will deliver that much only. You may ask ‘How’?

Just recall the processes and you would know we begin by invoking the Gurumandala. The moment you invoke higher guiding energies of Guru, the moderation and regulation of your state of consciousness follows thereafter under the ambit of Tattvas and Gurus. And the Guiding energies follow your intentions thereafter. The moderation/regulation is self-adjusting throughout the process and is dependent on your capacity to ingest therefore making right intentions at the beginning is always desirable.

The intention is so very important that all ritualistic processes begin with ‘samkalpam‘ wherein the doer has to take some water in his hand and say the intention aloud. As a rule the samkalpam defines the goal or outcome that you wish to achieve through a particular process.  Therefore through this article I want to tell every Panch-Mahabhuta Shakti Kriya practitioner they need to make proper intention before entering in the process of chanting. This samkalpam can be said subvocally instead of saying it aloud. So if you do not wish to exceed a particular timeframe in your practice say so. For example you can make intention ‘I am doing this Panch-Mahabhuta Shakti Kriya for 30 minutes to achieve mental clarity and relaxation’. In this way your practice will automatically be terminated in 30 minutes. Also you shall also enjoy the intended fruits from PSK.

DISCIPLINE : ADHERING TO THE PRACTICE SCHEDULE

All spiritual practices irrespective of whether they are pertaining to Yogic System or Tantric system should be done following specified periodicity. It is very easy to understand why. If you follow a timetable in giving your body its food it becomes ready at that specified time to accept and digest the food. Same way when you are feeding your body and mind a spiritual diet its readiness to accept and assimilate becomes important. If you aren’t disciplined in keeping your practice schedule it may also lead to unexpected responses from mind and body.

Like every practitioner you should also follow the most ‘fertile period for the practice’ for Panch-Mahabhuta Shakti Kriya. It will help you gain more in less time.

Blessings,

– Ma Shakti

|| परमपूज्य, प्रातःस्मरणीय पं. श्री मुरलीधर जी मिश्र||

I bow down to lotus feet of my first Guru, my revered father Pandit Shri Murli Dhar ji Mishr,  Vidya Guru Kaul Shiromani Shri Shivanand Nath ji, Yoga Guru Paramhamsa Shri Balendu Giri ji Maharaj, Tantra Guru Shri Shri Anta Devji Maharaj, Vama Guru Shri Kaleshwaranand Ji Maharaj and all the compassionate Masters, divine souls of Gurumandala..  I pray for their love, support and guidance..

Shivoham!

अथ द्वितीयोऽध्यायः ।   साङ्ख्ययोगः

श्रीभगवानुवाच ।

क्लैब्यं मा स्म गमः पार्थ नैतत्त्वय्युपपद्यते ।

क्षुद्रं हृदयदौर्बल्यं त्यक्त्वोत्तिष्ठ परन्तप ॥ २-३॥

klaibyaṁ  sma gamaḥ pārtha naitattvayyupapadyate,
kṣudraṁ hṛdayadaurbalyaṁ tyaktvottiṣṭha paraṁtapa||

Krishna further says:

“O Paartha, it does not befit you to yield to this unmanliness. Give up such petty weakness of heart and arise, O vanquisher of enemies.”

Whether you want success in outer, worldly matters or spirituality (inner search of ultimate truth) it requires high spirits and morale. The need to be optimistic, enthusiastic, and and being full of energy is the prerequisite to overcoming the negativities of the material mind. Shri Krishna is a such a patient and composed teacher that he, without wasting any of his time gives instruction to the Arjuna to get up. He uses the term ‘parantap’ skillfully to enhances Arjun’s internal strength (parantap means conqueror of enemies) to tackle the situation. Spiritually meaning he should win over the enemy of negativity and cowardice in him.

How many times you have found yourself passing judgements on people around while trying to tell them their ‘duty’. Negative words don’t help. Only occasionally and very skillfully you can use negative words in the process of encouragement because the negative words challenge people and confused people do not feel challenged. They feel demotivated instead. These people could be your friends, close relations like husband or wife, son, daughter, employees.. anyone, if you are not encouraging them you are not doing your duty well. You are falling short of your ‘compassion’ and understanding.

Krishna uses two adjectives for Krishna in one sentence. By addressing Arjuna as the son of Pritha (yet another name for Kunti), he pinches him to remember that his mother Kunti, had worshipped Indra, the King of Swarga – the chief celestial god, and with Indra’s blessings Arjuna was born. Arjuna was thus endowed with extraordinary courage and strength, might and valor matching to that of Indra. This word “Parth’ is used by Krishna to remind Arjuna of his strengths.. to encourage him. To help him shun the display of impotence, which does not befit his illustrious parentage.

A teacher, an advisor should not only tell what is right action but explain ‘why’ is something ‘not right’ too. Here Krishna clarifies that the way Arjuna is feeling is neither conforming to moral duty nor it is expression of compassion; instead it is lamentation arising out of delusion and lack of energy. Most of Acharya and commentators have translated ‘Hridaya Dourbalya’ as weakness of mind but Krisha has used this word indicating that this weakness is not of mind but of heart.

Truly we take decisions from many centres of our being. The state of a particular chakra becomes the central to a specific decision, action or choice. When we lose the balance in our chakric energies our decisions are skewed as well. These misplaced inferences are drawn due to over or underactive chakras in particular situations. Here Arjuna is suffering from weakness of heart. Master in Krishna has seen the weakness through Arjuna’s pranic and verbal expressions. The situation has struck him right at that centre.. different patterns and emotional hues of different thoughts affect different chakras. The words we speak affect us differently… and that is why when you say “Jai Ho” or “Jindabaad” it hits you somewhere else compared to when you see “Alas!” or “Oh!”. (at few places even the words clearly depict the difference. Watch the words and sounds made in pronouncing Ho and Oh…). To the Tattva Shakti Vigyaan practitioners knowledge… now you know why I ask you to refrain from using certain words and how that affects your pranic health.

Arjuna has been talking so long.. different words he spoke kept hitting him at different energy centers but most affected was his heart-chakra. This weakness of his stems from heart.. not the mind. If his behavior was balanced he would definitely operate with wisdom and mercy, he would take appropriate decisions then. But here his experience is nothing but confusion and grief.

In coming shlokas lets see what difference Krishna’s words make to Arjuna’s stream of thoughts and physical symptoms.

Shivoham!
