Everything in creation is a dhwani (sound), it is a frequency, a vibration.
All our desires too are dhwanis of varying frequencies. Tantra shastras detail the science of mantras, dhwanis and frequencies through which you can change your desires, your body as well as environment.
Om is an extremely subtle dhwani, also called pranav. When Om is chanted, the body vibrates from top to bottom.
When you practice the various tantra and mantra sadhnas under a guru, the effect is immediate, tangible and physical. The various sadhnas have the ability to manifest (vyakt) the unmanifest (avyakt).If you come to Dhyan Ashram, I will take you through the experience of this dhwani and the vibrations it creates within you.
But to hold the subtler frequencies, it is important to increase the capacity of the body through practices detailed in Ashtang Yoga and Sanatan Kriya.
Then you will come from avidya (unreality) to vidya (reality)—Om asato ma sadgamaya, tamso jyotir gamayo, mrityur ma amritam gamaya (From ureal to real, from darkness to light, then from death to immortality).
Many million generations before you thought the same way, but they are here no more, they had to leave leaving everything behind, so will you.Most people think everyone else will go, but nothing would happen to them and they will continue forever.
All you can take back with you is the frequency or vibration. If you are able to hold that frequency within you, your next body will be subtler frequency, the body of a dev.
If not, then it will be lower body, that of insects or animals. So if you want to achieve divinity, then develop that frequency inside you. Time is less.
People often think they are passing time. Actually, it is time that is passing you. Before you know you will be in shmshaan and will feel the heat of the fire all through your body. You will feel it for sure because while the soul leaves the body, prana lingers on for sometime and that prana can sense the uneasiness.
At Dhyan Ashram, we do various sadhnas where we have seen that while we think the body has gone, in reality the body can see and feel everything.
Try putting your hand in fire and see how much fun it is. Then imagine the same sensation all through the body…that time will come soon.
This is not a punishment, it is called purification (shudhikaran), which is a basic requirement for all the 16 karam kands given in shastras. This is the final karamkand and fire is the purification process.
