Dhyan Can't be Bought

There are three states to the mind, which the modern sciences acknowledge—the conscious, the unconscious and the subconscious. The fourth state, which the modern science does not acknowledge, is the super conscious state or the turaiya state.

There is confusion between meditation, hypnosis and dhyan. The majority of the modern sciences believe them to be the same. But the Vedic rishis differ here. They had experiences of the subtler dimensions, and mantras and images of the various devs and devis were visible to them. Not just visible, but with their help they were able to manifest in the physical world (which I call the unreal) various weaponry, health to the diseased, physical attributes, wealth etc. This was the state of dhyan which they were in, the turaiya state, and hence were able to do all this.


In dhyan, there is no pratyaya (an object of focus). There is poorna, or you may call it shoonya. The five senses are at rest and made to rest. You don’t focus on anything. You are there but you are everywhere, yet you are nowhere. You let go, depending on your karmas, divinity takes over you and the guru guides you into the higher realms and into reality, siddhis are a by-product.

In meditation, the conscious mind is at play. There is a pratyaya or an object of focus. You are meditating on something which has a form and through it you are trying to reach the formless.

This does not happen as when you focus on a form, the mind and the five senses are active, the neurons in the brain form the imagery and the five senses do not get stilled. You are meditating on something—something which is physical—or I would say on unreality. You daydream, the subconscious is activated and you have visions, and whatever you have seen in your life is all recorded and it is mixed and matched in imagery and over time you see things. There are no siddhis in this, just relaxation and a false impression of enlightenment. The so-called instant kundalini awakening falls in this category.

Hypnosis taps into your subconscious mind. Through the five senses, you are taken to a state of subconscious sleep and you float between the unconscious and the subconscious, where your senses are on but your physical brain is at rest and under the control of the hypnotiser.

The rhythmic music and the pendulum oscillation relax the brain and you let go into the sounds which you are hearing. Many music composers use this technique to increase the popularity of their music. Many guided meditations use this technique to increase their popularity.

There is striking difference between dhyan on one part, and meditation and hypnosis on the other. Dhyan stills your five basic senses and opens the higher senses. In the other two, the five senses remain activated and there is only a false impression of going beyond. Dhyan can be done only with a guru, the other two require teachers and professionals. Dhyan takes you towards reality, the other two towards your desires and other’s desires. While the other two require an object which is perceived by the five senses, dhyan gives you siddhis and humility, the other two egos and a false impression of having visited various dimensions.

Dhyan can never be bought, it has to be earned by the guru’s grace. The other two are for sale. Very minuscule people reach dhyan. The other two have a 100 per cent success rate. Dhyan makes you leave the physical world into higher pleasures.

The other two take you deeper into the physical world. Dhyan gives you the gyan of the Vedas without reading, the other two a false impression of knowing it all. Dhyan gives you glow, radiance and youth. The other two make you a successful businessman.

YOGA FOR KIDNEY STONES

There are two bean shaped organs in the body, one to the left and the other to the right in the pelvic region, and their function is filtration of the fluids of the body. The residue after filtration is then expelled from the body as urine. I am referring to the kidneys. Kidneys assume greater significance in our lives, given that are body is 60-70% water. And this water needs to be regulated constantly.
The kidneys are so fine an organ that they remove all the solids from the water. Certain solids which are heavy and cannot be expelled completely, get calcified. This leads to kidney stones. When the kidney stones grow in size, they block the top of the kidney or are pushed into the urethra thereby blocking it. Early symptoms are pain. And this pain need not be limited to the lower back area, and may even be experienced in the lower chest area.  This is because when the kidneys gasp for prana, they can put pressure on any nerve in the body. Another symptom is weight gain. When kidneys …

KALKI THE EXTINGUISHER OF EVIL: A GLIMPSE OF THE FINAL INCARNATION

“Whenever and wherever there is a decline in righteousness, O descendant of Bharata, and a predominant rise of vice – at that time I descend Myself. In order to deliver the pious and to annihilate the miscreants, as well as to re-establish the principles of dharma, I advent Myself epoch after epoch” Since the beginning, Lord Vishnu incarnated in various forms on earth from time to time. Whenever there was a disbalance in Creation, it was ensured that the avatars worked on rectifying it. The avatar was bespoke of the yuga as the yugas needed to change with time. He took birth as a Brahmin (Parshurama) to annihilate the corrupt Kshatriyas, as a prince(Rama) to slay the demon king of Lanka and as a cowherd(Krishna) who executed the cunning Kansa and steered the Pandavas to victory. Lord Vishnu is said to have ten avatars (dashavatars) in the present cycle of four yugas. Now, being the Kalyug, is the time when the tenth and the final avatar of Lord Vishnu will take birth on Earth. If we …

SHED YOUR COLONIAL MINDSET OVER COWS

The British punctured our roots, killed cows and poisoned our minds, and left behind generations of ‘brown Englishmen’, writes Yogi Ashwini Macaulay in his infamous ‘Minute’ in 1835 changed the course of how Bharat (or India as we call it now) would be perceived by its countrymen. He planned to uproot the Indian culture through English education. He advocated education for a selected class and wanted to create eminent clerks to serve the lower cadres in British administration, “Brown Englishmen”. The fact that most of us find it perfectly normal to address him, who ravaged our culture, as “Lord” Macaulay and find the idea of cow, which nourishes us, being our mother or goddess absurd, is a direct indicator of the fact that Macaulay succeeded in brainwashing us. A brainwash to the extent that no matter what we write here or whatever stats we share, the Brown Englishmen, even if they make it through the end of this article, would still not find anything wrong in killing cows or eating bee…
