Resurrection And Last Judgment 2

The body without soul no longer to be sacrificed:
Death's day will be birthday:
The divine spirit will make the soul happy,
Seeing the word in its eternity.

Century 2:12

It will be shown that the body is not important because the soul always continues,
And death will be regarded as the same as birth.
The understanding that the spirit is divine will make everyone joyful,
Because they will see the truth on a broader level.

The body without soul no longer to be sacrificed:


Self-Realization is rebirth of the physical human into the spirit being. This is what Shri Jesus meant when He directed that one must be "born of the Spirit." Once this takes place the Holy Spirit (Mother Kundalini) within begins to nurse, nourish, cleanse and guide Her child. The first birth body (physical body) no longer needs attention. The second birth body (spiritual body) is the soul itself and must be nursed constantly. The new lunar consciousness will reveal that all religious rituals — fasts, sacrifices, celibacy, penance, confessions, vegetarianism, caste, kosher foods, and sharia laws — are to be discarded like old garments. There will be no more religious austerities of the external physical body but nourishment of the inner spiritual soul, with inward growth, meditation, peace, joy, happiness, bliss, love, compassion, humility, tenderness, tranquility, and Truth. All the false ministers of the External Idols will be abandoned as they suffocate the human spirit with layer upon layer of rules, regulations, laws, dogmas, theologies, interpretations, falsehood and lies. These are the false prophets who have worked diligently over the centuries, devising ingenious ways to divide and rule His children. 

Then there are countless false gurus relieving gullible seekers of common sense and, of course, cash. And not to forget the mushrooming yoga schools and their fertile imagination to stretch both body and naivety. 

When the air is full of lies and half-truths good men flock to the truth like moths to a flame.


A Unique Discovery

by The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi

 

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

The Great Adi Shakti who has announced the Last Judgment to all nations and peoples of many tongues.

"Man in his search of joy and happiness is running away from his Self, which is the real source of joy. He finds himself very ugly and boring because he doesn't know his Self. A human being seeks joy in money or possessions, in power or human limited love, and ultimately in religion that is also outside. The problem is how to turn one's attention inward. The inner being, which is our awareness, is an energy. I call it the energy of Divine Love. All evolution and the manifestation of material energy is guided by the supreme energy of Divine Love. We do not know how powerful and thoughtful this unknown energy is. The silent working of awareness is so automatic, minute, dynamic, and precious that we take it for granted. After Self-realization, this energy appears to us as silent throbbing vibrations flowing through our being. But we have been unable to achieve Self-realization because we cannot fix our attention on something that lacks form (abstract Being). Instead, our attention wanders outside on forms. Now there is a method to tap the Divine power—Sahaja Yoga. At the very outset, I have to say that the working of Sahaja Yoga is very simple, although the operation within is quite complex. For example, if you want to watch television, it is very easy. But to explain the engineering technique of a television set is very difficult and the explanation is complicated. To learn about a television you also need a qualified engineer who understands it and who can explain its working.

 

Jesus: Marvel not that I said unto thee,

ye must be born again.”src=
Sahaja Yogis awakening the Kundalini of a young woman which appears as "tongues of flame", a feat witness by the apostles 2000 years ago and recorded in the Bible (Acts 2:1-22) "In the New Testament of the Bible the Initiation of Fire is revealed to the apostles on the day Pentecost, the traditional birthday of the Christian Church."  Note the calm disposition of the young woman, who appears to be in meditation, as ordinary housewives work collectively to substantially increase their ability to raise the Kundalini from the Molaadhara right to the Sahasrara within a matter of minutes.

I will try to explain Sahaja Yoga in the simplest way, but please note that it is really complicated if you want to know it in detail. The best way to enjoy television is first to switch it on and watch. Then later you can try to understand its engineering. As a mother I would say that I have done the cooking for you. Why should you worry about how it is done? If you are hungry you should start eating. If you are not actually hungry, but only inquisitive, what can I do? I can neither force you to eat nor make you hungry with discussions or lecturing. I leave it to your wisdom and to your freedom to feel that longing.

Some Background On Sahaja Yoga

The word "Sahaja" (Saha + ja) means born with you or inborn. Whatever is inborn manifests without any effort. Hence Sahaja Yoga is the name given to my system, which is effortless, easy, and spontaneous. It is a part of Nature, you may call it life's source—the vitality of the Divine.

To understand life, consider the case of something that is living: a germinating seed. The seed grows by itself into a tree, blooms into flowers, and then the flowers become fruit. Any human effort cannot change the process of growth from a seed into a tree. The gardener can only look after the growth of the tree. In the same way, the process of the growth of our consciousness, to further evolution, takes place effortlessly. When a fetus is between two and three months old, in The Mother's womb, a column of rays of consciousness, emitted through the all-pervading Divine Love, pass through the developing brain to enlighten it.

The shape of the human brain is prism-like. So, the column of rays falling on it gets refracted into four diverse channels corresponding to the four aspects of the nervous system. These are:

  1. Parasympathetic nervous system

  2. Sympathetic nervous system (right)

  3. Sympathetic nervous system (left)

  4. Central nervous System (This need not be discussed as it is the link with objectivity).

The set of rays that fall on the fontanelle bone (apex of the head known as Taloo) pierce in the center and pass straight into the medulla oblongata through a channel (Sushumna). This energy, after leaving a very thread-like, thin line in the medulla oblongata, settles down in three and a half coils in the triangular bone at the base of the spinal cord (Mooladhar). This coiled energy is known as Kundalini.

The subtle energy enters through the center of the brain (Sahasrar Brahmarandhra) and precipitates six more centers on its way down. The gross manifestation of this subtle energy, in the Sushumna channel of the spinal cord, is termed the Parasympathetic nervous system. The centers of chakras are expressed as plexuses outside the spinal cord. Surprisingly, we have the same number of plexuses and subplexuses outside, as the number of chakras and their petals inside, the spinal cord. Medical science knows very little about this system. Science calls it the autonomous nervous system, meaning the system that works spontaneously—on its own. For example, if we want to increase the rate of our heartbeat, we can do so by exerting ourselves (activity of the sympathetic nervous system). But we cannot directly reduce the heart (activity of the parasympathetic nervous system). The parasympathetic nervous system is a system that is like a petrol pump through which the petrol of Divine Love fills us. But when a human child is born and the umbilical cord breaks, a gap is created in the Sushumna (the subtle channel in the spinal cord).

And on the gross level, one can see there is a gap between the solar plexus and the vagus nerve of the parasympathetic nervous system. This gap is known as the void in the Zen system of religion and Maya (or Bhav Sagar) in Indian thought. Later when ego and superego bloat up like balloons and cover our brain at the apex of the left and right sympathetic nervous systems, the fontanelle bone calcifies, and the all-pervading vital force of Divine Love gets cut off completely. Then the human being identifies himself as a separate entity and the consciousness of "I" (Aham) presides. This is why Man does not know His universal unconscious. His ego severs this subtle connection. 

Vital Energy

The sympathetic nervous system uses the vital energy. There are two systems-left and right. The two channels, which carry this energy, in subtle form (in the medulla oblongata), are known as Ida and Pingala respectively. The right-side system (in the right-handed person) caters to the emergencies of the active consciousness (extra efforts and emergencies). The left-side system (in medicine they say it remains dormant) caters to the subconscious mind of the psyche (libido).

Both these sympathetic-nerve systems are called the Sun and Moon channels (i.e., Surya nadi and Chandra nadi). Hatha Yoga comes from the words Ha and Tha, meaning the Sun and Moon. By this yoga you can control the activity of the sympathetic; you can use more stored energy or else completely stop the activity of the sympathetic for a short time.

Just by using the stored energy you cannot achieve the eternal flow of the divine. With control over the sympathetic you can slow the heart rate or even stop the heart for a short time. You may achieve all the physical gross symptoms of the parasympathetic. But you cannot activate the parasympathetic which is the channel for your real yoga (meeting of the divine). With Hatha yoga you may even control your mind. But the mind thus governed is heavily conditioned for the spiritual flight into the divine. One may keep good health and good mind to be a good citizen in a society, but that is not the only aim of life. The Channels Of Attention Both sympathetic and parasympathetic act on the plexuses, but in opposition to each other. The parasympathetic relaxes the plexuses while the sympathetic squeezes the energy by constricting them. One fills in the vitality and the other consumes it. 

There is a gap in the parasympathetic nervous system (Sushumna) but no gap in the sympathetic nervous system (at the navel). This is the hurdle that has rendered all our searching-and entry into the parasympathetic-fruitless so far. It is like three ladders, two of them touching the ground while the central one is hanging in the air. So whenever we try to rise in our consciousness, we move on to the sympathetic system.

If we pass toward the right side we enter onto the activity that goes on bloating in the balloon of ego. Thus we feel responsible and active. When this activity increases beyond limits, like a growing tree whose roots are not equally grown, the being falls to the ground.

Over activity of the sympathetic nervous system causes tension, sleeplessness, and ultimately all deadly diseases like cancer. These diseases are caused by the constricted plexuses that have been drained of their energy. If you can make the parasympathetic dominate the right side, then we can antidote the effects of over activity. Then all the diseases and the effects caused by this right side get cured automatically.

The left side sympathetic nervous system (libido) has the power to store all that is dead in us. It connects you with store houses of the subconscious mind and with the collective subconscious (Bhootlok or Paralok).

At the backside of the brain, at the apex of this channel, the super ego exists like a balloon. It becomes heavy by storing, the conditioning of the mind through libido. So if the tension is heavy it breaks the superego into many fragments. If you still overexert by conditioning, a partial vacuum forms and this sucks another dead personality from the collective subconscious (Paralok) into your superego. So in your pursuit of truth, if you take to further efforts and indulge in concentration, training of the mind, forced abstinence, forced meditation, or complete slavery to the emotional attachment of the mind, the libido with the aid of the affected superego may connect you to the collective subconscious (Paralok) where all dead souls-bad, good, or saintly-exist. These souls start manifesting through you and you get siddhis or extra sensory perceptions. Actually these are the different subtle (dead) personalities dominating us through super ego.

Dangerous Techniques

There is another method that may be effortlessly employed by many so called teachers. This method, by which they turn the chakra in the direction of the libido, can put you into your subconscious. This method either makes the aspirant go into a trance or accept the complete domination of the dead spirits introduced by the teacher through the plexuses.

In the first case, the Sadhaka feels relaxed, his mind is switched off. But after a few years of practice, he realizes his weakness. He cannot face reality and takes to heavy use of drugs. In the second case, the aspirant becomes a complete slave of the teacher and starts giving away all material possessions to the teacher without understanding the logic behind it. These teachers never explain the technique they have employed, nor do they give their powers to anybody else. In short, all efforts in the name of religion, or the mishandling of Kundalini by so called realized people, can only activate the sympathetic nervous system (Ida and Pingla). These activities cannot make any progress toward bringing about the play of parasympathetic (Sushumna).

All mesmeric powers such as materialization power (enslaving masses for money or fame), visionary powers (Drishti Siddha), speech powers (Vani Siddha), curing powers, transcendental feelings (powers of switching off the mind), separation of body, and many other powers, are very ordinarily found among those who practice the control of spirits (Pretsiddhi or Smashan Vidya). All such powers can be proved to be the powers of the dead in any one of our experimental Centers. These are not Divine powers because the Divine has no interest in these gross subjects. It is interested only in the miracle of the inner being and its further manifestation to bring about human evolution. Thus those who indulge and use their attention (Chitta) on such "siddhis" and those who run after such gross miracles find it difficult to follow Sahaja Yoga.

We have noted that when such people confront Sahaja Yoga, they start trembling and shaking like lunatics. If with very great difficulty such a person reaches the state of Self-realization, he completely loses all interest in such powers and in their exhibition. He is freed of all extra dead personalities who dominated him. There is no need to pass through the subconscious strata to jump the unconscious. The subconscious is an end by itself and one gets lost after entering its realms. These strata are placed vertically. The only direct way is through the parasympathetic (through Sushumna)—the central path that takes you to the Divine (the universal unconscious)—through Sahaja Yoga.

It is very dangerous to use the powers of the subconscious which may become uncontrollable and torture the practitioner and Sadhaka. Those who are temporarily benefited may suffer irreparable loss to body, mind, or grace.

The Promised Goal

All religions have promised inner silence when you reach the state of Self-realization-the inner miracle of the subtle awareness and not gross jugglery. The Bhagavad Gita says that you become the witness (Sakshi Swarup) of the play of the Divine. Many modern thinkers are also talking about the new awareness. This has been described as "thoughtless awareness" which results in collective consciousness. We hear of many prophesies made by ancient and modern writers about the evolution of a new race of super-human beings of unique awareness. These are no longer empty words. Through the discovery of Sahaja Yoga it is possible to achieve the transformation of the human consciousness to the higher planes promised by various seers.

The subject of Kundalini is no longer a matter of book knowledge. Now you can see, with the naked eye, the breathing of the Kundalini at the Mooladhar. You can feel the different chakras in the spinal cord with your fingers. Formerly, bridging the gap in the Sushumna was the insurmountable problem. But it is being discovered that this gap can be filled with the vibrating power of Divine Love. The Kundalini rises like a majestic mother and breaks the apex of the brain (Brahmarandhra) without giving the slightest trouble to the child (Sadhaka). It happens in a split second, in the short spell between two successive thoughts. Of course, if the aspirant (Sadhaka) is diseased or his chakras are constricted by over activity of the sympathetic nervous system, the Kundalini, being the Mother of every individual and the embodiment of love, knowledge, and beauty, knows how to reveal Her love beautifully and to give rebirth to Her child without causing any hurt.

There are many descriptions about Kundalini warning us against the dangers and perils of the taming of Kundalini. Also many books describe various gross or frightful experiences of the Kundalini awakening. Actually this is caused because Kundalini cannot rise without Sahaja Yoga, i.e., if someone, who is not Self-realized, tries to awaken Her, the Kundalini does not leave Her seat and, without the proper invitation, the Kundalini becomes adamant and angry. Thus the sympathetic gets into activity. When She is accused of sex, She sends heat waves over the sympathetic nervous system which causes the constriction or blockage of the plexuses and the path of the Kundalini is completely broken down. Sometimes one gets into funny gesticulations or loses complete awareness of the outside. Moreover with mishandling of Chakras and Kundalini due to the ignorance or greed of the teacher, the chance of realization for the aspirant can become very poor and sometimes impossible. The mind that is very much conditioned, or the mind that is the slave of self-indulgence or of egoistic actions and thoughts, is also a very slow conveyance for Sahaja Yoga. Even if you read too much about the deconditioning of the mind, you may get only further conditioned. If you try to decondition by efforts, you can become conditioned much worse than what you were. 

Deconditioning is only possible through Divine Love. The main "condition" of Sahaja Yoga is that your will and freedom are always respected. In Sahaja Yoga the person is fully aware and alert and receives inner silence and experience without doing any unnatural movements. He sits in a completely easy pose throughout or he also may lie down (Sahajasana or Shavasana). The breathing is normal or less than normal.

Religion

Religions are also the expressions and experiments of realized souls-the seers. They also talk about the inner being, second birth, and about Self-realization. In the beginning, in India, they tried to take the attention inside by introducing symbols (idols) that they saw of this unconscious, universal being within. This gave rise to pantheism and the aspirant's attention got stuck to symbols (Sakar) and to rituals which killed the main objective.

So the other type of experiments of talking only about the abstract (Nirakar) gave rise to many other religions which ended up as dogmas or "isms." The reason is obvious. Talking about the flower or the honey cannot take you to the honey but can only create dogmatic "isms" in the mind. You have to be a bee to reach there, i.e., you have to be reborn. This has to happen within to take you inside. It is too great an achievement and unbelievable, but I feel the search of ages has brought great results.

The End Of The Path

The mind, with a child-like innocence achieves very quick results. Whatever may be the loads of the mind, if the longing is honest and earnest, sooner or later, the aspirant can get Self-realization. After reaching this state the vibrations start emitting from the extremities. These are described by Adi Sankaracharya in his work "Ananda Lahari."

These vibrations are the waves of Divine Love that can fill also other persons' inner being and give them the same experience of Self-realization. This is how the chain reaction starts. One light enlightens another.

The physical manifestations are as follows:

The pupils of the eyes become dilated (Parasympathetic action). The face becomes radiant, the body becomes light, all tension is completely removed. The rising of the Kundalini can be seen by others and felt by the aspirant. First the throbbing is clearly felt at Sahasrara (apex of the brain) and when it stops, complete silence is felt within and in all awareness. The flow of grace is felt coming down, cooling the whole being. As the attention moves to the subtle, gross attachments drop out. A person gradually loses identification with falsehood and artificiality. In matter, he sees beauty and not its possession value. In knowledge, he identifies himself with the Truth and is not afraid to profess, nor does he indulge in the double standards of life. His flow of love becomes spontaneous, generous, without any tinge of attachment, possession or any return. The person becomes ageless - a hollow personality. Now let us see what happens inside.


"
What is God-Realization? First is the Self-Realization ... What is God-Realization? Is to know about God. You see to know about God is to know how His Powers are working, how He controls, by becoming part and parcel of God Almighty... You know about God. You know about His Powers. But you have to know, to know through love, through devotion . . . for that a complete humility is needed.

You can become God-realized means God acts through you, uses you as His Power, as His channel, and that you know. That you know what He is doing to you, what He is telling you, what His vision is and what is the information. The connection is that."

Sri Tattvamayi Shri Nirmala Devi

Tattvamayi (907 th): Here 'Tattva' means 'Siva-Tattva,' the Ultimate State of Consciousness. The name refers to two states of Samadhi — God-realisation. They are known as 'Samprajnata' where the Sadhaka retains his Prajna or ordinary mental faculty while he experiences the Samadhi and the Asamprajnata where the Sadhaka is without mental faculty. The name also means that She is Herself the three Tattvas of 'Atma,' 'Vidya,' and 'Siva,' or the fourth according to some. There are 36 Tattvas according to Saiva-Siddhanta and She is immanent through all of them.

The attention of the consciousness moves to the inner being (Kundalini). As the thread (Sutra) of a necklace is passing through every bead of the necklace, the inner consciousness (Kundalini) is also passing through every human being. As soon as our attention moves to our inner consciousness we can move on to everybody's Kundalini. One starts feeling the Kundalini, its nature, its position in other persons. Collective consciousness is thus established. Now you become a universal being. After some days you cannot say who is the other person. The power of love is so great and dynamic that with the movement of your fingers you can move the Kundalini of thousands. It becomes child's play. This is how the en masse evolution of human beings will take place. These are the signs of the advent of the Golden age of Truth (Satya Yuga). Let us forget whatever hardships we have suffered in our search in the past. It does not matter if some could not find it before this. You have to open your mind and understand that though the discovery is unprecedented, it does not make any seeker or predecessor small. If some experiments are made, it does not matter if, ultimately, we have found out the way. It is a collective achievement. Perhaps in the chaos of Kali Yuga it was to happen and many of us, who have been earnestly searching in many lives, are reborn to have their promises fulfilled by the Divine. Maybe we were our own predecessors.

On the Tree of Life there might have been very few flowers but now the Blossom Time has come. Their fragrance of longing has collectively materialized the manifestation of Sahaja Yoga. Many are going to jump into the realm of thoughtless awareness where you get introduced to yourself and start identifying with your universal nature. Those who deserve will get the throne of their inner being which rules the Skies of Peace, and the Oceans of Divine Love and Supreme Knowledge within, which is limitless (Anant)."

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

 


Death's day will be birthday:


The day of death will be celebrated as the day of birth! The day of physical death will be celebrated as the day of spiritual birth! The last day on Earth will be the first day in the Kingdom of God! Nostradamus, How deep are your prophecies! How illuminating are your visions! And how were you able to find this priceless gem of a parable? We, the seekers of Truth and Eternity, salute you!


"
General George Patton of World War II fame, no stranger to personal reincarnational remembrances (he claimed to recall previous battlefield experiences as Napoleon), once observed, "For Hindus death is the most exalted experience of life." This idea is naturally hard for non-Hindus to grasp — all the more so for atheists facing Eternal Oblivion and those of Abrahamic faiths which define death as a punishment for man's sinful disobedience. To them, death is the ultimate sign of man's spiritual failure, a belief which arouses instincts of denial and injustice. One may feel penitent and guilty, not to mention uncertain about the destination ahead.

No such thoughts attend the dying days of a Hindu. Of course, there is much sadness surrounding the passing of friends and family, but that is honest acknowledgement of our loving attachments. Inside we know death is OK, natural, that the soul, even if it was less than perfect in this life, is continuing its appointed journey across life's oceanic phenomena toward Liberation and will, in time and without fail, reach the other shore. The Hindu's presumption of numerous births mitigates the tragedy of death, whether the passage is his own or another's. So, Hindus call death by lofty names — Maha Samadhi, "Great Superconscious State" and Maha Prasthana, "Great Departure." To be near an awakened soul at the time he or she gives up the body is considered among the most blessed of opportunities. While ordinary people are remembered on their day of birth, Hindus honor enlightened souls on the day of their departure, translated in English as "liberation day." "
"

Hinduism Today, January 1997

Death will be a joyous occasion for those who know the Ultimate Reality beyond this brief sojourn on Earth, and welcomed with open arms as "what happens after death is so unspeakably glorious that our imaginations and our feelings do not suffice to form even an approximate conception of it." (Carl Jung) For most of the devotees of the Shri Mrtyumathani Shri Nirmala Devi it will be their last birth on Earth! It will be the beginning of Spiritual Eternity! It will be the attainment of Eternal Freedom! Why shouldn't Death then be welcomed? Why shouldn't Death be celebrated with joyous abandon for the very first time in history? Why shouldn't there be happiness and celebrations amongst those whose loved ones meet Death for the last time and experience His Promise of eternal life? Why shouldn't death during the Resurrection be commemorated as a priceless victory, the beginning of a new life as a spirit in the Kingdom of God?

A profound change in human values will take place among the devotees of the Great Divine Mother who penetrate the Reality of Eternity. They will gain an insight that will end all tears, pain and sorrow. They will be free at last.

The elderly will be highly respected and held in high esteem by the disciples of the Ancient Primordial Mother. They will enjoy the glory and status accorded to venerable saints. Wise old Sahaja Yogis will be beaming with joy, hope, fulfillment, peace and great expectations. Even the greatest happiness of those in the prime of youth will pale in comparison to the endless Bliss of the elderly devotees of the Great Primordial Mother, as they meditate day and night on Her in their Sahasraras. Powerful vibrations will continuously flow freely from these sacred saints, divine proof that they are spiritually cleansed and ready to enter the Spirit World. Their death-days will be celebrated with the joy and happiness of birthdays as only in death will the Truth of Eternal Life in the Spirit World begin. Self-Realized souls will look forward to the Day of Departure with happiness, cheerfulness, and peace. 

On the contrary a vast majority of elderly beings, senile and sad prisoners-of-religion, will be waiting in fear, apprehension, loneliness, and gloom for Death to claim them. Their death days will be greeted with wails, shrieks, sobs and tears from friends and relatives. Their one-night stand on Earth will end is dismal failure, spent on seeking pleasure, wealth and power. As Lord Jesus has said "It is easier for a camel to pass through the
eye of a needle than for one who is rich to enter the kingdom of God." (MT 19:24)


"In a human form you decrease your age as your birthday comes. But with this you increase your age. And you are proud that you are growing. In the human level you feel unhappy that you are growing; here you feel proud that you are growing."

Shri Sadasiva Shri Nirmala Devi
The Way Of Our Spiritual Growth And Sahaja Penance
 
London, U.K. — April 22, 1984

 

 

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

The Great Adi Shakti who has announced the Last Judgment to all nations and peoples of many tongues.

"And when you die what happens to you is a very simple thing — that you feel liberated, absolutely, and then you feel your freedom, completely, and you can decide what to do. It's all under your own guidance, your own desires, everything works out. You don't feel that you have come out of your body and this is what (I) should tell you: that there should be no fear of death but on the contrary should be welcomed because you will feel much more liberated, much more at ease."

Shri Sarva-mrtyu-Nivarini Shri Nirmala Devi
To Achieve Complete Freedom
, Cabella, Italy — May 7, 1995


"Those who have spiritual enlightenment tell us that the basic cause of fear of death is our metaphysical or spiritual ignorance, which lies in the identification of the spirit with the body. As long as we are not aware of our true spiritual essence, of the reality of the spirit or the true self within us, it is natural that we are subjected to this fear of death.. The body is subject to the laws of nature. It is born, it grows, it attains maturity, it declines and it perishes. When we identify with this body and we have no understanding of our spiritual essence, naturally we feel that decline and eventual disintegration of the body mean our decline and destruction. So in all religions, the great spiritual geniuses have declared unequivocally that the more we know of our true spiritual essence of our being, the more we overcome the fear of death. We take a deeper perspective. We realize destruction of the body does not involve destruction of our spiritual nature, which is immortal and imperishable in character. Therefore, it is evident that the best way to conquer and overcome this fear of death is to sharpen our spiritual understanding and experience... .

As the great philosopher Spinoza said, the essence of spiritual wisdom is to be able to behold life under the aspect of eternity."

Dr. Haridas Chaudhuri, The Essence of Spiritual Philosophy
(Dr. Haridas Chaudhuri, The Essence of Spiritual Philosophy, Thorsons Publishing Group, UK, 1990, p. 133-6.)

 

". . .'to become the very self of every being' (BG. 5.7) does not mean the loss of a personal relationship with God, and probably with other liberated beings as well. This is in line with at least one type of Upanishadic thought typified in the dialogue between Indra and Prajapati in Chandogya Upanishad 8. The relevant passage is 8.12, 1-3:

 Bountiful One! For sure this body is mortal, held in the grip of death. Yet it is the dwelling-place of the immortal, incorporeal self. And this self, while still in the body, is held in the grip of pleasure and pain; and so long as it remains in the body there is no means of ridding it of pleasure and pain. But once it is freed from the body, pleasure and pain cannot as so much touch it.

 The wind has no body. Clouds, thunder, and lightning — these too have no body. So, just as these arise from the broad expanse of space up there and plunge into the highest light, revealing themselves each in their own form, so too does this deep serenity arise out of this body and plunge into the highest light, revealing itself in its own form. Such a one is a superman (uttara purusa); and there he roves around, laughing, playing, taking his pleasure with women, chariots, or friends and remembering no more that excrescence which was his body ...

Liberation is no longer the isolation of the classical Samkhya-Yoga: rather it is the end of what Christians mystics call as via purgativa, the way of the vishuddh'tma, the 'purified self' (5.7: cf. 5.11:6.12.) It is the beginning of the personal encounter of the integrated and liberated self with God."

R.C. Zaehner, BhagavadGita
(R.C. Zaehner, BhagavadGita, Oxford University Press, 1969, p. 234.)

 


The divine spirit will make the soul happy,


The Great Divine Spirit will make the departed soul happy. In Reality there is absolutely no death. Humans understand death as an end to either Paradise or Hell. The Great Holy Spirit says death is just the inability of the soul to control its destiny due to its lingering earthly defects of its owner. Only the freed soul is free of any further physical deaths and has absolute control over all its future desires and destiny for all eternity! Joy will know no bounds when the Truth of the Great Holy Spirit becomes a Reality and that the Spiritual World exists! And that there is eternal AfterLife! And that this is just the beginning of an infinite spiritual adventure! And that they can be reborn again on this Earth as humans or angels if they so desire! And that they are perpetually and completely free forever! And that ...


"An astral person meets a multitude of relatives, fathers, mothers, wives, husbands, children, and friends, acquired during different incarnations on earth, as they appear from time to time in various parts of the astral cosmos. He is therefore at a loss to understand whom to love especially; he learns in this way to give divine love and equal love to all beings, as children and individualized expressions of God."

Paramahansa Yogananda, Autobiography of a Yogi, Self-Realization Fellowship, 1974, p. 415.

 

"Birth, play, marriage, children, old age — life is finished. That is not living! Life is much deeper and more wonderful ... When you know God there is no more sorrow. All those you loved and lost in death are with you again in Eternal Life. The souls of those loved ones who departed before will come to welcome: fathers, mothers, wives, children, friends. Hundreds and thousands and millions of them! From hundreds and thousands and millions of past lives and rebirths! From hundreds and thousands and millions of millenniums ago! How many wives we must have had in previous lives and how many husbands God alone knows."

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

The Great Adi Shakti who has announced the Last Judgment to all nations and peoples of many tongues.

"But you know that you have eternal life. You can never die. Death is not this body disappearing. Death is where you are absolutely without any control of your soul. Once you are a Realized soul you have all the control, all the Powers to take your soul wherever you feel like — to be born if you like, if you don't want you will not be born. To be born with the people, in the families, in the communities, wherever you like."

"The resurrection of the body. Just as clear, however, is the real, indeed materialistic, significance that lies in the Christian understanding of the resurrection. A dualistic understanding of what is to be human, which assumes an essential difference between the spiritual and the material-bodily sides of human existence, necessarily leads to the idea of the immortality of the soul. According to this view, imperishableness belongs to spiritual nature alone. The Christian hope, however, does not aim at the immortality of the soul but at the resurrection of the body ... This hope was expressed by Vladimir Solovyov: What help would the highest and greatest moral victory be for man, if the enemy, "death," which lurks in the ultimate depth of man's physical, somatic, material sphere, were not overcome?

The goal of redemption is not separation of the spirit from the body; it is rather the new human in the entirety of the body, soul, and mind... .

Although it is not an uncontroversial point, there is in the New Testament, in the observation of many, a progression of salvation in history. Indeed, there is a progress of both the individual human being and of mankind as a whole, what might be thought of under some terms and conditions as a potential for the progressive perfection of the human being. This characteristic stands out already in the proclamation of Jesus. He promises his disciples: "Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears let him hear." (Matthew 14:12) ... In connection with the breakthrough of the idea of evolution through Darwin in the areas of biology, zoology, and anthropology, the tendency asserted itself — above all in 19th century American theology — of interpreting the Christian history of salvation in terms of the evolution and expectation of future human perfection in the form of reaching even higher charismatic levels and even higher means of spiritual knowledge and communication."

The New Encyclopaedia Britannica (1992)

 


Seeing the word in its eternity.


The liberated soul will know the Truth that this Earth is not the only one in existence and neither is this universe. It will realize the Truth that on the Cosmic Clock a hundred billion years are not even equivalent to a split-second! It will understand the very essence and vastness of Eternity.

And the soul will see a new Heaven and a new Earth for the first heaven and first earth were passed away. The soul will bow in humility, silence and reverence before the Holy Spirit and the Creator in His Kingdom. For such souls there will be no more sorrow, no more tears, no more fears, no more pain, no more sickness, no more deaths, no more grief, no more heart-breaks, no more anguish, and no more crying, for the former things are passed away. There will be eternal Bliss, Joy and Consciousness. 

For Hindus, death is nobly referred to as mahaprasthana, "the great journey." When the lessons of this life have been learned and karmas reach a point of intensity, the soul leaves the physical body, which then returns its elements to the earth. The awareness, will, memory and intelligence which we think of as ourselves continue to exist in the soul body. Death is a most natural experience, not to be feared. It is a quick transition from the physical world to the astral plane, like walking through a door, leaving one room and entering another. Knowing this, we approach death as a sadhana, as a spiritual opportunity, bringing a level of detachment which is difficult to achieve in the tumult of life and an urgency to strive more than ever in our search for the Divine Self. To be near a realized soul at the time he or she gives up the body yields blessings surpassing those of a thousand and eight visits to holy persons at other times. The Vedas explain, "As a caterpillar coming to the end of a blade of grass draws itself together in taking the next step, so does the soul in the process of transition strike down this body and dispel its ignorance. (Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami)

Professor Raimundo Panikkar in his masterpiece, The Vedic Experience, explains: "Modern Man wonders about death and weaves innumerable theories about it; he seems to be sure about only one thing: its factual reality and thus its inevitability. In spite of startling news produced now and then by the scientific shamans of our age, contemporary Man seems at a loss when he is confronted with one of the most ancient myths of mankind: the possibility of avoiding death. Because death is seen to be inevitable, modern society tends to wipe out from the memory of the living all dealings with the dying and the dead. The fundamental Vedic attitude is almost the opposite: it does not reckon with death's inevitability and it does not try to smuggle death away from everyday life.

According to this vision, which is common to other cultures as well, death is not inevitable; it is only accidental. You die if your life is snatched away before you reach maturity, or before you marry, or if something unexpected happens to you which prevents you from achieving what you yourself or society was expecting of your life. Death is limited to this rupture, this misfortune, this accident. Thus it is always an unnatural event, and it is always akala mrtyu, untimely death.

On the other hand the old Man, "the Man of long life," as the Vedas call him, the one who has lived his life, who has fulfilled his life span, his ayus, 1 does not die; he does not experience a break and, thus, a trauma; he has simply consumed the torch and exhausted the fuel. The flame of his life goes on and it burns in his sons, his daughters, his children's children, his friends, his work, and in his ideas which are scattered to the four winds. Even his body, with its own energy, has already enriched the earth on which he has walked, the rivers in which he has bathed, and the living beings with whom he has been in communication and communion. Only the last gifts of his body and breath still remain to be given away. The old Man does not die; he simply finishes his commerce with life and achieves the transmission of all that he himself has received, as the Upanishads describe. 2 He cancels the constitutive rna, the debt of gratitude for the gift of his existence. 3 The natural extinction of one particular carrier of life or the completion of one's own life is not death.

Indeed, not every Man who is old in years reaches long life, maturity, and thus immortality. It is not a question of mere number of years but of growth, for which the passing of years — the hundred autumns — is certainly required but of which it is not the only condition. Time, in fact, is more than its measurement by the passing of days and seasons; it is the qualitative coefficient of human growth itself. To disentangle the immortal from the mortal, to liberate himself from the claws of death, is the task of every Man. On the one hand there is the asu or life-principle, the power of life or vital strength, which is assimilated in some traditions to the ahamkara, the selfish ego of unfulfilled desires and unachieved projects. This ego is not pure, later periods will say, inasmuch as it consists of unburnt karmas; it is this ego that is afraid of death, because it must certainly die. There is, on the other hand, the personal atman, that spark of the paramatman, which does not die. Jiva, in spite of the variety of meanings given by different schools, could also be another word for immortal Man."

 

"So this happening that we are afraid of death is absolutely absurd for Sahaja Yogis. What is there to think even about your death. There is nothing like death for you because you have got eternal life."

Shri Anarghya-Kaivalya-Padadayini Shri Nirmala Devi

 

"So you must know your position as eternal beings — what is your work; what is your idea; what you have to do. So one has to get rid of this idea of death because death does not exist for you — It is finished ... your spirit is free."

"The Upanishads do not teach a death experience, but an experience of life. Ultimately there is no experience of death and the death experiment is, in the last analysis, unreal because the "subject" who died was not real. The supreme Upanishadic experience is discovered precisely by realizing that the experiment of death is only a psychological experience, made by the immortal atman.

The Vedic experience is one of liberation, of freedom from everything. It thus includes freedom or liberation from time. What both fascinates and haunts Upanishadic Man is not anything that comes after, but that which has no after. As long as we are entrammeled in the net of mere temporal existence, we are in the clutches of death, even if we postpone death by a sequence of successive existences. An afterlife is as inauthentic a life as a prelife. The piercing of the skin of time as with a needle, without either hurting or destroying the spatiotemporal epidermis and yet transcending it, is what liberation is all about. . ..

Now, the end is not death and dissolution, nor is it an indefinite and horizontal repetition of one and the same circle. One of the discoveries of the Vedic wisdom is precisely that, whereas time is circular, Man is not, so that for him it is not a question of beginning all over again. On the contrary, it is imperative that he escape the enclosure of the circle. The circularity of time indicates its ontic finitude, whereas Man is infinite. Man has to break the circularity of time in order to reach the ontological fullness of his being. To enter into this other nontemporal, but no less real, sphere is to attain realization, to reach liberation from the encirclement of time and freedom from temporal chains. It is a truly new life, not in the sense of a "recycled" life but in the sense of a new type, a new kind of life, indeed, the only real and authentic life.
"

Professor Raimundo Panikkar, The Vedic Experience

 

"Religions are the expressions and experiments of Realized souls — the seers. They also talk about the inner being, second birth, and about Self-Realization. In the beginning, in India, they tried to take the attention inside by introducing symbols that they saw in this unconscious Universal Being within. This gave rise to pantheism and the aspirant's attention got stuck to symbols and to rituals which killed the main objective. So the other type of experiments of talking only about the abstract (Nirakar) gave rise to many other religions which ended as dogmas or "isms." The reason is obvious; talking about the flower or the honey cannot take you to the honey but can only create dogmatic "isms" in the mind. You have to be a bee to reach there, that is, you have to be reborn. This has to happen within to take you inside. It is too great an achievement and unbelievable, but I feel the search of ages has brought great results.

The mind with a child-like innocence achieves very quick results. Whatever may be the loads of the mind, if the longing is honest and earnest, sooner or later the aspirant can get Self-Realization. After reaching this state the vibrations start emitting from the extremities. These are described by Adi Sankaracarya in his work Ananda Lahari. The vibrations are the waves of Divine Love that can fill also other persons' inner being and give them the same experience of Self-Realization. The physical manifestations are as follows: The pupils of the eyes become dilated. The face becomes radiant, the body becomes light, all tension is completely removed. The rising of the Kundalini can be seen by others and felt by the aspirant. First the throbbing is clearly felt at Sahasrara and when it stops, complete silence is felt within and in all awareness. The flow of Grace is felt coming down, cooling the whole being. As the attention moves to the subtle, gross attachments drop out. A person gradually loses identification with falsehood and artificiality. In matter, he sees beauty and not its possession value. In Knowledge, he identifies himself with Truth and is not afraid to profess, nor does he indulge in the double standards of life. His flow of Love becomes spontaneous, generous, without any tinge of attachment, possession or return. The person becomes ageless — a hollow personality. Now let us see what happens inside.

The attention of the consciousness moves to the inner being. As the thread of a necklace is passing through every bead of the necklace, the Inner Consciousness is also passing through every human being. As soon as our attention moves to our Inner Consciousness we can move on to everybody's Kundalini. One starts feeling the Kundalini, its nature, its position in other persons. Collective Consciousness is thus established. Now you become a universal being. After some days you cannot say who is the other person. The Power of Love is so great and dynamic that with the movement of your fingers you can move the Kundalini of thousands. It becomes child's play.


"Many beings remain for thousands of years in the casual cosmos. By deeper ecstasies the freed soul then withdraws itself from the little casual body and puts on the vastness of the casual cosmos. All the separate eddies of ideas, particularised waves of power, love, will, joy, peace, intuition, calmness, self-control, and concentration melt into the overjoyous Sea of Bliss. No longer does the soul have to experience its joy as an individualized wave of consciousness, but is merged in the One Cosmic Ocean, with all its waves — eternal laughter, thrills, throbs ...

"When a soul finally gets out of the three jars of bodiily delusions," Master continued, "it becomes one with the Infinite without any loss of individuality. Christ had won this final freedom even before he was born as Jesus. In three stages of his past, symbolized in his earth-life as the three days of his experience of death and resurrection, he had attained full power to arise in the Spirit. The undeveloped man must undergo countless earthly and astral and casual incarnations in order to emerge from his three bodies. A master who achieves this final freedom any elect to return to earth as a prophet to bring other human beings back to God, or like myself he may chose to reside in the astral cosmos. There a saviour assumes some of the burden of the inhabitants karma and thus help them to terminate their cycle of reincarnation in the astral cosmos and go on permanently to the casual spheres. Or a freed soul may enter the casual world to aid its beings to shorten their span in the casual body and thus obtain the Absolute Freedom."
"

Paramahansa Yogananda, Autobiography of a Yogi, Self-Realization Fellowship, 1974, p. 420-21

 

This is how en masse evolution of human beings will take place. These are signs of the advent of the Golden Age of Truth (Satya Yuga). Let us forget whatever hardships we have suffered in our search in the past. It does not matter if some could not find it before. You have to open your mind and understand that though the discovery is unprecedented, it does not make any seeker or predecessor small. If some experiments are made it does not matter if, ultimately, we have found out the way. It is a collective achievement. Perhaps in the chaos of Kali Yuga it was to happen and many of us who have been earnestly searching in many lives, are reborn to have their promises by the Divine. Maybe we were our own predecessors. On the Tree of Life there might have been very few flowers but now the Blossom Time has come. Their fragrance of longing has collectively materialized the manifestation of Sahaja Yoga. Many are going to jump into the Realm of Thoughtless Awareness where you get introduced to your Self and start identifying with your Universal Nature. Those who deserve will get the Throne of their Inner Being which rules the Skies of Peace, and the Oceans of Divine Love, and Supreme Knowledge within which is limitless."

The Great Adi Shakti who has announced the Last Judgment to all nations and peoples of many tongues.

"Many people ask Me questions: "What about death?" ... But you know that you have eternal life. You can never die. Death is not this body disappearing. Death is where you are absolutely without any control of your soul. Once you are a Realized soul you have all the control, all the Powers to take your soul wherever you feel like — to be born if you like, if you don't want you will not be born. To be born with the people, in the families, in the communities, wherever you like. There are many great souls I know that have taken birth daringly into societies which are very much, I should say, deteriorating and are in danger of getting destroyed because of stupidity they do.

So this happening that we are afraid of death is absolutely absurd for Sahaja Yogis. What is there to think even about your death? There is nothing like death for you because you have got eternal life. It's not that you continue with the same body. You may go on changing your dress but you are living, you are aware. And you know even if this body is not there you will be there, all the time. I will agree for Sahaja Yoga, for anything that is to be done in the name of Reality. So you must know your position as eternal beings — what is your work, what is your idea, what you have to do. So one has to get rid of this idea of death because death does not exist for you. It is finished ... your spirit is free.

And when you die what happens to you is a very simple thing; that you feel liberated, absolutely, and then you feel your freedom completely, and you can decide what to do. It's all under your own guidance, your own desires, everything works out. You don't feel that you have come out of your body and this is what I should tell you: That there should be no fear of death but on the contrary, should be welcomed because you will feel much more liberated, much more at ease... .

This body is finished is a very good idea. So troublesome it is. The most sticky thing we have is this body... . So to forget about death is the easiest thing to do."

"What Is This Self-Realization, Anyways?

A friend wrote me and asked me about that "self realization thing" that I had mentioned in conversation. This was my response:

The Self-Realization that you mentioned is the goal of life. It is basically the experience of knowing the answer to the question, "Who am I?"

The way to have this experience is not something difficult. However, there are many paths that will give you a difficult route if you like. Many people think it "has to be hard". Those who do usually will find a hard path, and if a natural, effortless path comes along, they will pass it by.

"Too good to be true. It can't be that easy, You can't get something for nothing. Life is made to be hard......etc. etc. etc."  You get my point.

What is between you and your Self-Realization? Simply the past experiences you've had in your life that keep you believing in limitation and fear. Most of the 50-60,000 thoughts that people think throughout the day are about the past (that you wish you could change) or the future (which you fear.) This keeps you from experiencing the perfection of the now.

Because your mind experiences what looks like chaos, so does your body, and this lodges stress in your nervous system. This in turn perpetuates these thoughts. Thus, a downward spiral is formed. Old habits, judgements, beliefs, and limitations can keep a person so caught up that the Light of Self-Realization within is covered and clouded. This happens even though it is always there—always within our hearts—unchanging. We don't experience it because of everything covering it up. It is that simple. It is the most incredible experience. It cannot even be described by words.

Jesus did well to call it, "the peace that passes all understanding." In the Eastern world, it's called Enlightenment. These are different descriptions of the same experience. Your own personal experience is what's important. No amount of knowledge about an experience compares to having an experience. That bears repeating: many people have all kinds of ideas and things about the experience of enlightenment, which is not at all anywhere near the actual experience.

“Self-Realization, Its Meaning and Method

Self-Realisation is not an easy thing to achieve, because the notion of the Self is a barrier and a handicap. What do you mean by the Self when you speak of Self-Realisation? Where is this Self situated? "It is within me." This is a usual glib answer available for any person. "I seek to know my own Self." And why do I seek to know my own Self? Because I want to live in peace. What do you mean by peace? No answer can be given. Here, again, we are in a state of confusion. Why do you want Self-Realisation? To know my own Self. Why do you want to know your own Self? To be in a state of balance in my mind and outlook. What for is this effort? To be peaceful. What is peace? That cannot be answered. We do not know what this peace means, about which people talk so much and which is the theme of the various rostrums in the parliaments of cultural discussion the world over, which are taking place from Peru to China! But, what is this Self? While you may say, 'it is within me,' and this may appear to satisfy the person who has put this question, you will be sure that it does not satisfy even your own selves. There is no use merely saying 'the Self is within me and that is my God.' We have a curious notion of Self and God, indeed. It is within you! When you say, 'the Self is within me,' what do you mean by this 'me'? What is this 'me' or the 'I'? Again, the same question arises. Here, again, we are bodily shackled. We are men and women, we are human, and we cannot be anything else. So this 'within' in which the Self seems to be situated is the 'within' 'this body.' You have confined the notion of yourself to your bodily existence finally, though your intention is to break through the barriers of bodily consciousness in search for the Self... . Many of the books will not answer this pose. If God is not within, where else is God? And if you say that He is within, within what? within the body? You are caught again by the very answer that you are giving, which is supposed to be the solution to your problems."

Principles of Self-Realization (PDF)

We are more than our bodies, ego or personality. Inwardly we are eternal spiritual beings that are already, on its own level, perfect and one with God.

We are therefore multilevel beings, with each layer consisting of a conglomeration of attitudes, beliefs and feelings. The aim of Self-realization is to clear the outer layers so that one's inner or higher Self may manifest and express itself without distortion.

Everything real already exists within. This inner reality is not affected by what we do.

Some universal qualities or characteristics of one's inner Self/spirit are: love, peace, joy, light, power, will, beauty, energy, purpose, knowing, infinity, creation, movement, unity and timelessness.

Realizing one's Self requires that we stop blocking it and surrender to the promptings of the spirit and the longings of the heart that opens to and allows an experience of these impulses—love, joy, peace, light, etc.

Realizing one's Self entails letting go: of fears; of assumptions of separation, lack and special needs; of negative judgments and preconceptions; of guilt, self-doubt and pride.

Our minds are part of One Whole Mind that is interwoven with all creation. However, because we hold a perception of separation and fragmentation we therefore experience things this way.

As we change our minds, our world and experience will also change because what we inwardly hold to (not just on a conscious level), we will create and experience in our lives.

Our experience in the world allows us to recognize what we assume to be real.

Creating our reality begins with our choice in how we perceive our experience. The aspect that we focus on and identify with is accentuated.

Everything that we seem to experience outside of ourselves in the world is really contained within the Self. (Negativity has no substantial reality but rather is a denial of spiritual reality.)

What we are unconscious of in ourselves we will experience as projections on to others and events happening to us that seem out of our control or will.

What we judge against in others, we judge against in ourselves. Conversely, what we forgive and accept in others we forgive in ourselves.

Pain and suffering come from the instinctive tendency for the ego to become attached to and identified with things that it believes we need and are.

Choosing values and beliefs which are out of accord with the truth of our Self entails pain and suffering. Integrating the Self's qualities and purposes releases the distortion causing the pain.

Every pain therefore contains some gift if it is utilized— some awareness, Self-knowledge and realization.

Choosing integrity and authenticity means ultimately bringing our personality into alignment with our inner Self so that we may become outwardly what we already are spiritually.

Love and sexual attraction outwardly reflects the inner process of becoming whole, by integrating the ego with the inner Self. What we seek to unite with in another is our Self.

Therefore, the purpose of relationship is not to get but to share and gain awareness—by expressing ourselves we realize who we really are and fulfill the intention of the Self.

Desire, which becomes attached to sense objects, ultimately derives from and can be redirected to the urge to reunite consciously with one's source or inner being.

Love acknowledges the essential unity of all life and the urge to realize this oneness.

Violence in the world is an expression of negativity associated with Self denial.

Fear results from identifying with the body and not understanding the nature of reality—there is ultimately nothing to fear.

It is not the ego that becomes self-realized, rather identification with the ego is released as we live from a deeper place of wholeness and affirmation.

"Song of The Sannyasin

Wake up the note! the song that had its birth far off,
Where worldly taint could never reach, in mountain caves and glades of forest deep,
Whose calm no sigh for lust or wealth or fame could ever dare to break;
Where rolled the stream of knowledge, truth, and bliss that follows both.
Sing high that note, sannyasin bold! Say, "Om Tat Sat, Om."

Strike off thy fetters! bonds that bind thee down, of shining gold, or darker, baser ore —
Love, hate; good, bad; and all the dual throng.
Know slave is slave, caressed or whipped, not free; for fetters, though of gold, are not less strong to bind.
Then off with them, sannyasin bold! Say, "Om Tat Sat, Om."

Let darkness go; the will-o'-the-wisp that leads with blinking light to pile more gloom on gloom.
This thirst for life forever quench; it drags from birth to death, and death to birth, the soul.
He conquers all who conquers self.
Know this and never yield, sannyasin bold! Say, "Om Tat Sat, Om."

"Who sows must reap," they say, "and cause must bring the sure effect: good, good; bad, bad;
And none escapes the law. But whoso wears a form must wear the chain." Too true;
But far beyond both name and form is atman, ever free.
Know thou art That, sannyasin bold! Say, "Om Tat Sat, Om."

They know not truth who dream such vacant dreams as father, mother, children, wife and friend.
The sexless Self — whose father He? whose child? whose friend, whose foe is He who is but One?
The Self is all in all — none else exists;
And thou art That, sannyasin bold! Say, "Om Tat Sat, Om."

There is but One: the Free, the Knower, Self, without a name, without a form or stain.
In Him is maya, dreaming all this dream. The Witness, He appears as nature, soul.
Know thou art That, sannyasin bold! Say, "Om Tat Sat, Om."

Where seekest thou? That freedom, friend, this world nor that can give. In books and temples, vain thy search.
Thine only is the hand that holds the rope that drags thee on.
Then cease lament. Let go thy hold, sannyasin bold! Say, "Om Tat Sat, Om."

Say, "Peace to all. From me no danger be to aught that lives.
In those that dwell on high, in those that lowly creep — I am the Self in all!
All life, both here and there, do I renounce, all heavens and earths and hells, all hopes and fears."
Thus cut thy bonds, sannyasin bold! Say, "Om Tat Sat, Om."

Heed then no more how body lives or goes. Its task is done: let karma float it down.
Let one put garlands on, another kick this frame; say naught.
No praise or blame can be where praiser, praised, and blamer, blamed, are one.
Thus be thou calm, sannyasin bold! Say, "Om Tat Sat, Om."

Truth never comes where lust and fame and greed of gain reside.
No man who thinks of woman as his wife can ever perfect be; nor he who owns the least of things,
Nor he whom anger chains, can ever pass through maya's gates.
So, give these up, sannyasin bold! Say, "Om Tat Sat, Om."

Have thou no home. What home can hold thee, friend? The sky thy roof, the grass thy bed;
And food what chance may bring — well cooked or ill, judge not.
No food or drink can taint that noble Self which knows Itself.
Like rolling river free thou ever be, sannyasin bold! Say, "Om Tat Sat, Om."

Few only know the truth. The rest will hate and laugh at thee, great one; but pay no heed.
Go thou, the free, from place to place, and help them out of darkness, maya's veil.
Without the fear of pain or search for pleasure,
Go beyond them both, sannyasin bold! Say, "Om Tat Sat, Om."


Thus day by day, till karma's power's spent, release the soul forever.
No more is birth, nor I, nor thou, nor God, nor man. The "I" has All become, the All is "I" and Bliss.
Know thou art That, sannyasin bold! Say, "Om Tat Sat, Om."
