Beloved AD, I love to hear it from you. Someone I encountered recently playing around the word ‘Advait’. It created a thirst in my being to yet again listen to you. My master, my beloved say it unto me once more please. – Devpriya
The locus standi of a common seeker doesn’t allow him to delve so deep to appreciate this concept of ‘Advaita’.. which says “Eko Braham dvitiyonaasti”. In my more than 18 years of spiritual guardianship of so many seekers I have encountered only three such potential individual. At least in them I could see a remote possibility of flowering in them. All others have been just beginning their journey. This state of affair is really sad but then it is as it is supposed to be. Buddhahood is rarest of phenomenon. The probability of encounters to probables is the exact reflection of the situation. But then a master is bound to speak a language which most of his people are able to relate to.. so am I.
However that does not take away the beauty of all other individuals who are along with me in their journey, soaring new heights everyday with every therapy session and meditativeness which has seeped into their life. They are growing, they are crawling with dignity.. even that is worth appreciation. I have been feeding them. I have been minding them and I know some day they would get up on their feet to be able to walk along. So that I can take them to the lake of immortality for their final baptization.
People have started treating spiritual masters as therapists and counselors and it is not their problem. The new generation of so called masters is responsible for this and it is worth giving a thought. I know some 50 years back there were not many masters. Not many preachers. There were legacy of those who were. They had something to offer.. they had some substance in them. Today media has done a lot and advertising has played a great role in establishing the fakes. I am not against them they are doing what they are supposed to do. Giving their followers what they want – and even you know what you want!
Advait is ultimate concept and almost beyond words but so many commentaries are available for Sankara’s Advait. Mandan Mishra lost the well fought battle of words and became follower of Sankara along with his wife. But how did it change the world? Sankrara had to do “Par kaya Pravesh” to experience “Kamasutras”. He did establish the “Rajju-Sarpa Siddhanta” but for what? This actually has harmed the humanity even more. People read it and falsely start believing that know it.
So if someone engages in talks with you about such nonsense just understand that in this utilitarian world people want to use spirituality as means rather than end unto it. They wish to earn good name, fame, money and power and that pseudo feeling of “i am spiritual”, “I am knowledgeable”, “I am well read”. So don’t encourage them. This is not the aim, not at all for me at least you know.
I am not here to give any feeling of “Holier than thou”. I am here to show the mirror. Most people fear facing me because they feel they are ridiculed, exposed. Many of people have run away because I came too harsh on them. I am here to hit. Hit hard and precisely there where it hurts more. And when I do so.. I have to be at their level. Allow me that but know that I am here to operate upon psyche of such people and shake them up. I am here to help them grow in their mind and to take them to that state where some day they would be able to realize the futility of mind game – their face, their curves, their name, their virtues, their knowledge, their social position, their relationships, identity.
I am definitely not going to teach or preach. I allow to experience. That is all they need. The other day a homosexual person approached me asking if he was fit to self realize. I said to him laughing.. “You are too choosy. If you have not been able to come to terms with both sexes. How do you feel you could accept everything as it is?” He seemingly understood what I meant but all he could do was his efforts to be able to penetrate women. He later confessed this and I told him that although this was a courageous beginning and all the means were ok till they lead him to growth. But self-medication is not advisable. Refer the physician. This opposite movement wasn’t needed. I had the medicine but only if someone asks.
I don’t encourage you to gather certificates of fitness neither I give them. This would further strengthen your own shell behind which you hide.. this falsification of the so called persona is the biggest obstacle in making you really interested. The spiritual journey is a individual journey but best complimented in pairs up to a point. Choose your partner and tell each other.. Tatvamasi, “You are that.”
I have been asked “would you suggest me hypnosis?” No, I know you are already hypnotized by the society. You need few sessions to de-hypnotize yourself. But yet again.. only if you could become aware of this fact that you are hypnotized by the society that very moment you are out of that. It can happen by Master’s therapy. All hypnosis is a process of sleepy state and I cant allow you to sleep any more. I want you to be fully awake.
Today certain beliefs instilled in your unconscious mind are governing your actions and if I use hypnotherapy to program your subconscious the opposite way it would be another belief. You would still be operating unconsciously. I want to free you from all beliefs so that spontaneity can become your nature. I want you to wake up and open your eyes to the reality of your own being. You should be able to see your own belief system. And that is what I recommend. Then in that state of awareness you can enter the kingdom of self. It is not possible through opposite beliefs.
Beloved Shakti, When Sankara told the people around… “Tatvamasi..you are that” it was his realization. It was his experience. It was he who declared.. “I know you are that and actually there is nothing else than that.” It is not yours until you make it yours. Chanting it wouldn’t help. Neither believing it. But who is ready shed the masks. Who is ready to shed the clothes. Who is ready to be naked and dance in front of master? Show me that person and I can show him “Tatvamasi”.
