Mystic Mantra: The journey from darkness to light

Gita says a life led only for self-gratification is a life of sin.

A human body is the only dimension where one can move from darkness to light. Tamso maa jyotir gamaya. When you look at the night sky, what is it that catches your attention first? The moon. Why? Because it is the brightest. Sun, moon, stars are all gods and goddesses and the universe is full of them. Some of them are in the light, them you can see. Others are in darkness. When you go in deep states of dhyan you are able to interact with them, and you actually see the pits of darkness they are in and the pain they experience because we got this chance, a human body, to move from darkness to light. They also got a chance but lived a selfish life, hence are in darkness. Sanatan Kriya gives you the ability to see their dimensions.



To get a first-hand experience of this darkness, sit in a closed dark cupboard. Ask someone to lock it from the outside and lock the room and do not open it for 3-4 hours. In that pitch dark, when you get scared and shout for help, remember your karmas and ask yourself how many people have you pulled out of darkness? Why should you be freed from it?  A similar interaction is carried out with those beings in darkness as one intercepts them in dhyan. They also shout and call out for help.

But why do these beings call out to you?

When you do good for people, you develop a glow inside you. Gita says a life led only for self-gratification is a life of sin. Do something good for someone, and you will start to glow. The more your good karmas, the greater is the glow, more are the gods that can see you and the more you evolve. Because when you see someone in pain, you do get at least one thought that he should be saved. And, energy follows the thought. When you think, your voice is heard and God saves them. Similarly, when Gods see you glow, they also want to do something for you. Your thought manifests for them and their thoughts manifest for you.

The Gods can’t see your face. Just like you can’t see their dimensions. But when Gods see your light, they feel gratitude towards you and you rise. Increase that glow within you. Change your thoughts from lower (selfish) to higher (selfless), and the Gods will take notice of you and choose you. Yoga is a tool for evolution, and Sanatan Kriya is a part of it. Experience is the key in this journey from darkness to light.

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 …

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…

OVERCOME OBSTACLES TO MEET SHIVA

Mata Parvati was the daughter of a great king. When she chose to marry Lord Shiva, her parents objected and ridiculed her decision. They asked her why she would want to stay at Mount Kailash where there is nothing but snow, instead of marrying a man owning a huge kingdom and a palace. To this, she replied that all of these are temporary.
When her parents didn’t believe her, she gave them a glimpse of their future. They were shocked to see that their lavish palace was nowhere to be seen, it didn’t exist. That is when they understood what their daughter was saying. That is when they got the gyan.

Everything that is a part of the physical world—the body, property, relatives, friends and riches—is unreal and will
leave us one day. It is only when you are able to access Shiva that this gyan flows and you get the darshan of what is real.
The path leading to Shiva, however, is not easy. Sadhaks, who choose to tread this path, need to possess traits like Shiva—tapasya, vairagya (deta…
