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.

“pranam pranam pranam
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

The Gita: Srimad Bhagwadgita: श्रीमद्भगवद्गीता : Chapter 2:03

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

|| 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!

Stotras – The Ways to Connect with the Divine Virtues of Infinity!

Tattva Shakti Vigyaan

Shivoham!

The Shiva is spontaneous force, innocent and all-powerful. Though He sits silently as witness at the core of everything but you should not forget that it is ‘His’ Shakti that creates, sustains and annihilates the infinite cosmic celebrations around us. When Shiva is realized within He is realized through his Shaktis the ‘gyaan’ and ‘ichchaa’. The power of knowing and Power of willing. When He is experienced in the Urja chakra He is seen with Paarvati. Paarvati represents the Shakti of Gross (tangible and material – Energy and condensed energy – matter) world.. Parvati in our being is originating from Muladhara (Prithvi) and residing at ‘her very own place’  the Swa-Adhishthaan’ as kula kundalini.

When it comes to physical manifestation that is in the Aham-Idam frame, the Shakti becomes manifest in the form of Bhairavi, Shiva follows and incarnates as Rudra or Bhairava. Shiva is seldom visible to aspirant…

Cultivating and Living with Siddhis – All about Psychic Powers (Part II)

Shivoham!

Last time we outlines types of siddis or psychic powers. We left our discussion on a point where you would have been speculating whether any such accomplished people really exist or have ever existed. Well.. there are innumerable examples and stories of tantrics, yogis and adepts across religions scattered over the timeline of history. Many incidents of such miracles have been well documented too but we can always challenge those incidents claiming play of trick, mischief and use of technology (magic). It is true because even ‘seeing can not amount to believing’…after all what entertaining magic and magicians are all about? They create the illusion of miracles but with some or the other material trick or technology.

However let me still place some spiritual masters of the ‘widely talked’ miracles. These ‘never-proclaimed-spiritual-magicians’ could manipulate the rules of this world (illusion created by Maya) without using any trick or material technology but only their cultivated power of ‘directed will’ (mind) or through use of their ever-potent Kundalini shakti (energy). I shall also try sharing exact disciplines/methods through which these adepts could display such miraculous powers.

Before dwelling in historical figures I would rather want to discuss about those experiences which we have personally had. Here are those encounters and the secrets about the powers they shared. The first mention I shall make is of my first Guru.

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

Pratham Pujya Gurudev Pandit Shri Murli Dhar ji Mishr

My beloved father and my first Guru Pandit Shri Murli Dhar ji initiated me in the spiritual path through Suryopasana and Yoga. We called him ‘Babuji’, his friends and colleagues respectfully called him Guruji. Now I understand why even his friends called him Guruji. Babuji was practising Yoga from his Gurukul days and had mastered many aspects of it (in late 1960s) in the benign company of a Siddha Yogi (everyone referred to him as Yogiraj. Those days Shri Yogiraj used to live in a kuti (thatched cottage) near Chaupara Mandir in the outskirts of this small township. And as indicated to my father in some conversation that he would now leave for Himalayas… he left his ashram one night without informing anybody. Everybody was sad that day.. people searched and searched but nobody ever came to know of his whereabouts. I have asked the team to pull out Param Pujya Yogiraj ji’s photographs from my personal archives and if possible I shall share some of them for you in future posts) during his prolonged stay at a township called Raath in the district of Hamirpur where he was serving in the Food and Civil supplies department of then undivided Uttar Pradesh. We grew up seeing him spending his morning hours in Yogasana and Dhyan whether it was chilling cold or dreaded summers. We saw him perform Nadi-Shodhan, Nauli, Dhauti, Kunjal, Neti etc. on regular basis and shankh-prakshaalanam twice a year in a disciplined way year after year.

He never claimed to have any siddhis but what everyone around him (including family) knew he had few mysterious powers. I had seen him saying many times “कमरा ठीक कर दो, कोई आने वाला है” (make the room, someone is coming shortly)… such declaration (because sometimes he will tell exactly who is coming) he will make amidst his reading some book leisurely and that came true exactly every time. The surprising thing was that even some guests, upon arriving shall tell during the greetings etc. that they had no plan of visiting him but decided only an hour ago or few minutes ago (I clearly remember the faces of those colleagues and relatives of ours who said such things upon arrival). We wondered how come he comes to know this.  It was those times when there were no mobile phones, pagers, instant messengers even our home did not have a landline phone at our home those days. Of course today it is no surprise and we have all the means for connecting with people around the globe but that wasn’t the case then. In fact all these modern day inventions and technologies are successful endeavours of translating the ‘possibilities and capacities of perfected human mind and managed energies’ available to non-yogis.

How Siddhi of knowing things in advance is developed –

Today kids are so pally with their parents and can not only ask so many questions but even ‘question’ their parents’ actions and decisions.. but in our childhood days we were not so (deliberately avoiding suffixing any adjective for modern kids.. but we happily accept being what we were ‘old-fashioned’ and ‘fearful of our parent’ however let this be clarified this fear was rooted in respect and anticipation of being caught saying something wrong or of crossing out limits in our words or actions. I never asked him about this magical power and he never explained about this with me. But in later years upon perfecting the knowledge given by him I can tell you what makes it possible. Even when I discussed this siddhi with other Gurus they also agreed to me that there’s no specific sadhana about it except to have least possible mental chatter. With the ability of distinguishing subtle energy spandas (surge of vibrations) through advancement in Dhyana, especially with that type of Dhyana that continues even after leaving the meditation seat (asana) such messages can be clearly received. I owe this knowledge and power to my first Guru.

||Guruma (R) with Gurudev Shri Kaleshwaranand ji (C) at Kamakhya||

Second siddhi which was at Babuji’s command was Vaak Siddhi. In fact this particular siddhi we have seen and experienced in many other saints and Guru’s of Gurumandala. To mention a few our Vama Tantra Guru Kaleshwaranand ji, Guruma Mahabhairavi, our Vidya Guru Kaul Shiromani Shri Shivanandnath ji, Kanno Guru ji Maharaj, Naga Baba at Triveni Bund Prayag, Aghori Baba of Hanuman Temple in Prayag (Nana ji), Agyaat Guru Yogi ji… they all displayed Vaak Siddhi. I have never seen any declaration (even things they said in anger) of all these adepts proving wrong in time. Those who don’t know what is ‘Vaak Siddhi’ – It is power of speech so profound that words uttered by such a siddha person always come true.. come what may! It is also mentioned in Ramayana by Tulsidas ji in a doha “व्यरथ न होय देव ऋषि बानी” (words spoken by Devatas or Gods and Rishis or adepts/siddhas never go in vain.. means it comes true!)

How Vaak Siddhi manifests –

Vaak Siddhi is expression of one’s desirelessness and benign intentions for every creature of the world. There are many ways but with my own experience I can tell that this power (Vaak Siddhi) comes with ajapa-jap anushthaanam of minimum 5 years but there are other ways too. I remember once speaking with Guruma Mahabhairavi ji on this topic when she said.. “Once you perform Chakra-Puja for 3 consecutive years this power is ignited and words of such a sadhaka can never fail”. With this conversation I understood that even paaraayan of Durga Saptshati may also gives this power. Another way which was given by Kanno Guruji was that one should not speak untruth. This way he said leads to vaak shuddhi and leads one to vaak siddhi. Fourth method for this power to come is ‘Maun Vrat (vow of silence for willed period)’ and least use of words. This was told to my father by Naga Babaji of Triveni Bund, Prayag.. Another secret ritualistic method for vaak siddhi is given in our Guru lineage and that is based on Saundarya Lahiri sadhana. For that matter even ‘Sabar Mantra Sadhana’ is also there for cultivating this power. I have had no connection with Buddhist monks and therefore do not know if they too have some mantra based spiritual practice for it but in my personal conversations with multiple Jain sanyasis they revealed another mantric way of attaining vaak siddhi. But one thing should be noted all mantric and ritualistic ways of attaining vaak siddhi require one to be initiated by a proficient Guru. A Guru plays the role of protector and guide in every spiritual (yogic or tantric.. here tantric includes mantric and yantric ways of all religious paths) sadhana.

Siddhis are traps when they are used indiscriminately, non-spontaneously, for self-gratification or with planning to rule the world. But despite being a futile venture psychic powers cultivated spiritually is engaging… it is sheer joy to know how many unknown and miraculous powers are hidden within this framework of human mind-body-kundalini.

In the next part I shall discuss about other siddhis… other personalities.. their personally cultivated methods, experiences of Tattva Shakti Vigyaan practitioners on psychic powers and what secrets Masters share about cultivating particular psychic powers through various spiritual (yogic & tantric) practices.

Blessings from Masters,

– Acharya Agyaatadarshan Anand Nath

Igniting and Living with Siddhis – All about Psychic Powers (Part I)

Shivoham!

We keep receiving many SOS messages from many Tantra amateurs. There was heavy influx of requests for guidance in Yakshini Sadhana after the post on that subject from me. Honestly speaking, considerable number of mails from the DYI type practitioners who were pathetically struggling for even their day to day survival after engaging in the unholy task of taming the Yakshinis was an unpleasant surprise that forced me to think the obvious ‘WHY PEOPLE ENGAGE IN SUCH THINGS THAT THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND?’.

I also got few comments full of ‘education’ and ‘hallucinating experiences’ claiming to be already enjoy the company and love of some gorgeous, voluptuous Yakshinis. I know those were people who, probably had read about Yakshinis in different books and freely sharing ‘their’ perspective trying to claim their share of fame and pride. As a rule I have given instruction to the ‘Blog Management Team’ to not publish/allow any comments without my approval therefore all these remarks came to me for my perusal. Upon which, I simply instructed the team to ‘mail’ those ‘educators’ asking them to provide their background of real, hands on experience in the field, their Guru Lineage and current master etc. so that we know ‘where they are coming from’. And no surprise… not a single mail received a reply! It was kind of a litmus test which proved that most of online resources and ‘Gyan-factories’ on the subject of ‘Tantra Sadhana’ are being run by ‘copy-edit-paste’ or ‘read-re-write’ type people having NIL experience of this esoteric and ritualistic process.

                                                 || Siddhis – Boon or curse? ||

It is no surprise to see uninitiated people entrapped in cyclones of many ill-tempered shaktis and negative energies just because they are not able to control their urge to know the unknown and gain powers (siddhis) but I feel really sad when even initiated people ‘Fall’ and destroy themselves. I am sure their teachers and Masters would have given them proper brief of the subject but alas!… Few days back I was presented with a message from my Team. This message was left for us on our Facebook Page. I thought of picking a thread of Tattva Shakti Vigyaan Sadhana from this message and educate all my beloved disciples. Before I discuss the subject of Siddhis see the message for yourself (The names have been withheld to keep the identity secret) –

 Dear Sir /Madam, I would like to get advice on the below matter concerning Telepathy. This is regarding my uncle Raxxsh Nxxr. He was practicing Sri Vidya tantra for decades and with that he used to practice telepathy. With practice he use to test and read other people’s mind and also sometimes he use to make them irritate. But it was just a kind of childish behavior for which he is guilty. But he had very good capacity to do such things, One day doesn’t know and how it happened, his thought started broadcasting. This was something unusual for him also. All his secrets started revealing outside. In his own native place it was difficult to live. It was the age he should earn for his secured life. But all turned around for him. All the neighbors started getting irritated of him. All wanted him to die or him to go away anywhere. But this is what I call destiny. He got job in gulf country, but he was not able to work because of thought broadcasting. It was a problem for his colleague. He had to leave the earning and the place .Which was very difficult and put him a big problem. Many people experienced it, His entire relative thinks it is illusion, but I don’t think it is illusion. Because I have read about this kind of mind powers. As this person condition is very dull, he don’t need financial help now, he need to get his problem solved and get rid of it He know only Malayalam, he can tell more clearly , if you give help him or if you don’t want to do it then please give me any contact person who solves his problem and give him remaining better life I appreciate in advance your kind gesture to guide me on the same. 

Can you please help to get him out of this? – V. M.  

Siddhis : Real of Fig of Hyper-Imagination?

Siddhis or Psychic Powers should be simply understood as cultivation/enhancement /perfection of human capacities sometimes to unimaginable levels. Those who are students of Yoga and have read Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra they would know, in Vibhuti Pada there are many psychic abilities and siddhis that are gifted/achieved upon perfection of mind-control i.e. upon attaining Samadhi.

In our Tantric texts, like in Shiva Sutra Siddhis have been hinted (without giving complete account of it) through the mention of words like ‘Bhuta-Prathakatva’, ‘Bhuta-Sandhaana’, ‘Vismay’, ‘Visha-Samghatta’ etc. that is attained in ‘Bhairava’ state. Some of these siddhis are said to be within 24 Tattwas and some are achieved after penetrating the coverings of maya ‘the Kanchukas’.

In fact there are innumerable number of Siddhis. Someone who attains siddhi is called ‘Siddha’ and each one of us is Siddha in our own right because another meaning of word ‘Siddhi’ is perfection. We can debate on this word ‘perfection’ saying.. nothing can ever be perfect so.. what is perfection? However there’s another word which we can use here… that is called Kushalata ‘Excellence’. So even a daily wager, a mason, a surgeon, actor, truck-driver.. everyone… is siddha (has perfection) in many things.. Why? Because they do many things ‘excellently’ and achieve perfection in action (Yogah Karmashu Kaushalam : The BhagwadGita) within their capacity.

Today’s ‘Excellent’ is tomorrow’s ‘shoddy job’. As we evolve.. We look back at our own past works and wonder.. “Was THIS the BEST of me? Can’t believe!”. So siddhi is a dynamic preposition and can not be defined in a static framework of human capacities. Things which one could only dream about 100 years ago are within the reach of common masses (albeit through use of external technologies). There are many people born with extra-ordinary capacities and talents and for that they are referred to as superhumans. Scientists would probably link all these ‘beyond normal’ capacities to either the genetic material DNA or capacity of something intangible by senses (mind or thought). Therefore we may still debate on whether all the siddhis or powers (psychic or otherwise) which find mention in ancient texts are for real or not but there’s no denying in fact that if a human being trains his mind he can definitely display miraculous powers. Just to add every age (time period) has its own charter of Siddhis – so not all kind of siddhis can generally be attained by everyone in a particular age.

Still there are and would be some powers every human would want to possess because having those gives a sense of being ‘different from herd’, ‘more capable than others’ and therefore being worthy of ‘respect and admiration’ and these are listed below –

Ashta-Siddhis : The Eight Great Psychic powers

  1. Animaa : One becomes able to be smaller than the smallest. Such a person can assume the body size even lesser than the subatomic particle therefore capable of penetrating every ‘matter’ in this cosmos
  2. Mahimaa : One can become as large and big as the universe
  3. Laghimaa and Garima : Ability to attain any frequency in the entire spectrum thereby ability to alter one’s weight and to be able to travel with the speeds greater than light
  4. Praapti : Ability to manifest any object from void (what we call appearance of things out of thin air)
  5. Praakaamya : The Bhairava/Bhairavi/Yogi/Yogini equipped with such psychic power can fulfill any desire he/she has
  6. Ishitva : Seemingly such a Yogi appears to defy or withhold the set laws of nature such as walking on water or fire, breathing fire etc.
  7. Vashitva : Such a Siddha/Yogini can control other being’s (humans and animals included) actions if he/she desires so
  8. Kaama-vasayitava : It a sense it is culmination of all the siddhis one can have such a Yogi can do ANYTHING! Virtually nothing is impossible for such a Yogi. This is THE highest of all Siddhis any Siddha can acquire. In tantra it is referred to as Vishwa-sanghatta.

It is documented and believed that only a select few Tantra/Yoga practitioners with high spiritual calibre can attain such Siddhis but this is also to be noted that such Yogis seldom reveal their capacities and it is extremely rare to see them use these.

Not all yogis & Tantric practitioners (even the realized ones) stay in the Major Siddhi zone (being nearer to the primal source of creation) as they are pushed towards kaivalya state or Shiva-Shakti consciousness (as that is the actual goal of all the arduous sadhana/ practice) abruptly. Albeit most of the practitioners, during their sadhana do experience few other siddhis or psychic powers occasionally or even persistently. For example

  1. A Yogi/Tantra sadhaka may not be bothered by thirst, hunger and may overcome any other physical appetites/needs
  2. Sadhaka can perceive and hear far sounds and even conversations among people
  3. Whatever one says comes true – it is called Vaak Siddhi
  4. Such a Yogi/Tantric has capacity to produce any fragrance (good and bad both)
  5. A Sadhaka is capable of seeing distant events and this sometimes happens even involuntarily
  6. In deepest state of trance/meditation/Shiva-Shakti Saamyujya a Sadhaka’s body lifts above the ground – Called Levitation
  7. An accomplished Tantric/Yogi can travel to any location merely by thinking of that location. This is in fact piercing of Niyati Kanchuka in Tantra’s terminology.
  8. Such a Tantric/Yogi can acquire the shape of any being he/she wants. Just as we read in many great epics such as Ramayana we have story of Rakshasas taking shape of Animals or different looking person
  9. Entering into someone else’s body at your will – It is also known as Parakaya Pravesh.
  10. Yogi can choose when he wants to leave this mortal body – Ichchaa Mrityu is another name for it
  11. Having access to other lokas and witness the activities of beings in those realms
  12. Such is the power of Sadhaka that if he desires for any event to happen.. it will happen
  13. A sadhaka many times gets baffled to see other’s thoughts in his mind. This may happen as will or even involuntarily
  14. Sadhaka is endowed with the power to nullify the effects of poison in his own body or even others
  15. If a Tantric practitioner stumbles upon this power or siddhi he/she becomes invincible (mostly this is displayed in the debates or Shastrarthas)

Early Mistakes in the company of Masters : Blessings in Disguise

Lot many people tend to adopt spiritual practices only to gain some sort of exceptional capacities or psychic powers.. referred to as siddhis in yogic/tantric/religious texts. In fact it is quite natural and human to seek power, position, capacity and knowledge.. psychic powers are definitely included in the list of one’s to-achieve list. As a beginner what else one can seek? Many times people think what is the harm in freely using a power gained through Tantric rituals and Tattva Shakti Vigyaan sadhana. Our Gurus have told us hundreds of stories where siddhis became not only hurdles and roadblocks in spiritual progress but totally destroyed the sadhakas.

I must confess to have used the ‘power of teleportation and telepathy’ very early in life (but only once in 1985) because very soon (within 7 days of influencing someone) a horrible life-threatening situation struck me. I had no option than to narrate the whole story to my Guru, my father Pandit Shri Murli Dhar Mishr ji and I can tell you it was real embarrassment to tell him what I had done. To cut the long story short what followed was Guru’s refusal to share more on the subject. He made me to wait for long 2 years to ensure I was mature enough to receive further teachings! A similar teleportation experience baffled Shakti Devpriya ji during her stay in Banasthali, Rajasthan in late 90s while trying to do something miraculous with the use of Prateek Vigyaan. She partially lost her ability to distinguish between the dream and reality for almost a month, upon knowing which Gurudev had to first heal her to normalcy and then took a promise for not using Prachya Prateek Vigyaan methods for trying to change or break the rules of visible reality. Thankfully we learnt our lessons early and stuck to our grounds thereafter…

Now as a teacher of the subject, we too come across many such people (mostly seeking help in saving them from drowning due to willful engagement in siddhis or psychic powers). It is also a fact that if one’s Guru is in body one should approach him/her. In the absence of Guru one should look forward to solution within the Gurumandala as first choice and if that’s not possible then only you should seek help from others. Unfortunately not all cases can be brought to normalcy.

To make a mistake is human.. repeating is Foolish!

Taking up Sadhanas and practices only for developing siddhis or psychic powers is a common beginner’s mistake. Such an approach is rooted in one’s ignorance about the actual chemistry of spiritual practices. Everyone can be called a beginner at some point therefore to accept the fact that we can be ignorant should not be difficult. And to do away with the darkness of ignorance you need a guide, a Guru, a teacher.

Every spiritual practice has associated dangers. You may ask “What kind of danger?” but your asking itself is rooted in your ignorance. Only answer possible to this question would be ‘You are not aware of the larger chunk of reality and there are so many unknown forces and processes of universal energies which are not perceptible to human sense organs and lot many most advanced-fuzzy-logics beyond comprehension for even most powerful computers we can ever develop. Frankly speaking the dangers are enormous and sometimes ever-irreversible – Imagine a giant planet or star being swallowed by a ‘black hole’.. It’s gone, there’s no explanation to why that happens. Ask any scientist and he will tell you that nothing can be done about it once the event has started happening. All tantric and Yogic literature is full of warnings against chasing siddhis. They are not advised for a sadhaka for their ability to “suck us in and destroy us completely”.

A true Guru shall always tell you in the first place that the sadhana/practice is NOT aimed at any positive effect in material world and if at all anything positive happens it is just the grace of mother Universe upon us to only ease our way of self-exploration by reducing the external roadblocks and enhancing attention in seekers. Secondly if any of the disciple is found to be in the attainment of some psychic powers the Guru shall discourage his/her disciples from misadventure of all kinds. More or less if one examines carefully he will surely find that –

  1. Cultivation of Siddhis is pure wastage of time.
  2. Digression from your goal of self-realization
  3. It only promotes your ego and exacerbates your lower tendencies
  4. Temptations are high and ultimately if you have not purified in your intellect and prakriti you shall start deriving sadistic pleasure very soon
  5. Ultimate issue with siddhis and their show is that it sucks your potential out leaving you an ordinary man (scared of death and entangled in the cobweb of passions) at the end. A golden opportunity that is gifted with the blessings of Guru and grace of Divine gets lost.

Can I ever get Psychic Powers?

You can definitely get Psychic Powers but there’s a lot of difference in getting Psychic Powers and wanting psychic powers. If you are in right place the Guru shall tell you what to do and what not to do in your spiritual practices. You just need to continue doing your practices as advised and slowly dormant powers start unfolding. Actually most of the people who run after siddhis are trapped by negative forces as they are in hurry and hungry for powers. Such people are taken over by negative forces very easily because they are not purified in their intentions and energies.

One must understand that there are multiple ways of exhibiting miracles and magic. Depending on which way you gain these powers your fate especially ‘Life After’ is decided. Among many there are ways which can be referred to as ‘The Higher ways’..

Well.. I wish to discuss it all here for the clarity and guidance of DYI ‘Power Seekers’ and all Tattva Shakti Vigyaan practitioners but it is in the light of Gurumandala’s wisdom, Sacred Tantric Texts and of course personal experiences I wish to warn all Tattva Shakti Vigyaan practitioners to stay neutral to all sorts of miracles manifested around them and attribute those events ONLY to the grace of Gurumandala and divine Mother rather than their own. We owe all our psychic powers to them. And in such a case if we commit a mistake they play saviour. But if you don’t pay heed to these words of Masters then you are doomed.

 More on Siddhis such as how these are acquired? What are principles at work? And also I am sure you would want to know if you can ever see/meet any living person who is capable of displaying any of these siddhis. I shall talk about these things and also show you that all the mysterious powers (siddhis) attained through the practices of Tantra Yoga result from a mastery of the elemental.

That shall come in my next session..

Till then enjoy your Sadhana and stay blessed.

Saundarya Lahiri – The Tantric Way of invoking Divine Beauty in Life!

For those who are not hooked on to Tattva Shakti Blog.. Shivoham!

Tattva Shakti Vigyaan

Shivoham!

Gururbrahma Gururvishun Gururdevo Maheshwara

Guruh: saakshaat Para-Brahm Tasmayi Sri Gurave Namah:

I request the Gurumandala to accept  my humble salutations… Namaste!

I have been taking up Shiva Sutras for US based Tattva Shakti Vigyaan practitioners & all of you here in India felt deprived of ongoing learning with Gurumandala.  So, that’s one of the reasons for taking up this new series for you. Also we see, some of you have truly grown with your Sadhana and we feel that you can be given more to experiment with and deepen your experiences before anointing you with Higher Deeksha.

The last but the most ‘mattering’ reason is that – in all these years of our public interaction Ma Shakti Devpriya ji and I have received innumerable requests from people to speak on some tantric text that not only helps one in raising one’s consciousness but also saves them from the hardships…
