Body & Soul - III

It can happen. One might start some composition and get stuck in the middle as happened with King Bhoj. One night lying in his bed he started to speak out a new verse.

Dhanam Roopatvam Preyashra Poornnatva Sukh Sevacha. 
Deham Raajya Ashvam Cha Patnee Preyashra Poornnatah. 
Sadam Hasti Cha Maannikyam-ham Raajaa Bhavataa Vadet.

These three lines mean - I am great king lord of a great city Ujaai, I own a large kingdom, houses, beautful queens, servants, wealth and all luxuries...And here he stopped unable to complete the forth line. He kept thinking and repeating the three lines again and again.

Just then a thief lay under his bed waiting for him to drop to sleep. If a person likes to dance he cannot keep still if some music is playing. If nothing else he would start to tap his feet. The thief was very wise. Circumstances had forced him to take stealing. He heard the king repeat the three lines again and again and at last when he could no longer restrain himself he blurted out

Sammeelane Nayanayo-rnahi Kinvidasti

He said -  You are right, O King! You are rich, you have all comforts, queens, servants, palaces but what shall happen to them when you die? What shall you be left with when you die?

This is what Lord Shiva said to Pushpadant- What shall you be left with when you die? Your wife your wealth nothing shall go with you. You shall be left with nothing for you have nothing worthwhile. You shall have something if you enter your inner body, the Sharir. You shall have something the day you shall be able to cry out hivoham Shankaroham, the day you shall be devote to the Guru. When you lose yourself in the Guru you shall be really rich. Then even death shall not be able to harm you. Then you shall become immortal and live on forever.

Right now death can come, for you are not linked to your inner body. Your physical possessions are useless, for they shall end with your death.

Lord Shiva says - If there is no medium between me and your then you shall gain nothing from offering flowers and water on my idol. There should be a Guru in between, for you shall not be able to see me with your physical eyes. Right now you cannot even recognise me.

How do you know what Lord Shiva looks like? Fine you worship his idol, but he must have some form. We keep worshipping idols and pictures. Pictures have been drawn by artistes who themselves keep chanting Om Namah Shivaay, Om Namah Shivaay and may be one day Lord Shiva manifest. But you shall think he is some Sadhu, some ascetic, for you have never seen him.

The Guru has seen Lord Shiva and he also knows you. This is why it is said - Sah Guru Sah Devataa. A Guru is necessary, for only he can introduce you to the deities. Only he can tell you that this is not an ordinary Yogi, he is Shiva.

This is why Shiva said to Pushpadant - You won't gain anything this way. You might worship me for another five thousands years and you shall have no benefit. Pushpadant understood what the Lord was saying and he went straight to a Guru and fell in his feet. To the Guru he said - I have come to you, Gurudev. Please tell me what to do so that I could fulfill all my wishes in life.

And the Guru explained the method to him, the same method that I am telling you after a gap of twenty five thousand years.

The Guru said - Forget about your physical self. Don't be infatuated with it. If you continue to do so you shall never make progress.

All relations of this world - wife, son, servants, friends are on the physical plane. You have to leave them for an hour, two hours or some time. I don't want you to leave them forever. I just want you to link yourself to the inner body for some time daily. And once you are able to do so you shall be filled with a unique joy. You shall feel as if you are becoming lost in divine ecstasy and you shall no longer be troubled by the problems around you.

Pushpadant's Guru said - Sevatvam Samrpatvam. He did not give a long discourse. He just spoke two words. He did not even give some Diksha. Rather he just gave two keys - service and devotion.

Devotion means giving up everything one has, devoting even one's body in the feet of the Guru. The Guru says to the disciple - Let me worry about your physical well being. I shall take care of you. You just stop worrying. And I shall not let you end up in a funeral ground. Only a physical body's destination is a funeral ground. But you shall no longer be in the Deh, you shall be in the Sharir. But this can happen only if you devote yourself and selflessly server the Guru. A Guru  is not selfish. He does not want to enslave the disciple, but devotion and service is the only way to this goal.

When one is carefree only then can one serve selflessly.

Sevatvam Samarpatvam Sadhakatvam ..

The first stage is of service, second of devotion, third stage is of a Sadhak and the fourth that of a disciple. Only after having been through the first three stages does a person become disciple.

Pushpadant said -  Being a disciple is fine, but I want to become lost in the divine form of Lord Shiva.

His Guru Said - For this first you have to get linked with your Sharir and hence I am giving you a Diksha through which you shall be linked to your inner body.

You might well have read about awakening of the Kundalini. But you do not know where the Kundalini is and to which place it has to be raised. Even your so called Gurus are not aware of this. And they have written books on Kundalini. I have read at least hundred of such books and they say that Kundalini is like a snake that sits coiled up at the base of spine. It rises up from here and having pierced all the Chakras reaches the Sahastrar.

You too can do this. Just pick up a few books and write one of your own. Just write something different, for example the number of coils are not three but two. And once your book is published you shall be acclaimed as a Master of Kundalini. Soon you shall have a following of disciples pleading with you to awaken their Kundalinis.

There are such Gurus and such books. Even individuals who have no knowledge have written on this subject. This is why the world of spiritualism has today become full of fraud and deceit.

Kundalini in fact is not there where you believe it to be! The Kundalini power has been clearly mentioned in the Gayatri Mantra. This Mantra can release this power and this is why it is said that Gayatri Mantra is more explosive than a nuclear bomb. But unfortunately we do not even know this Mantra fully. The ancient texts say that there are twenty four alphabets in the Gayatri Mantra. Just try counting and tell me how there are twenty four. You won't find twenty four and the texts state clearly that there are no less than twenty four. If you count you shall find only twenty three. Where is the twenty fourth? Who shall tell you the complete Mantra? If you do not have an enlightened Guru who shall give you this knowledge?

Someone told you this is the Mantra and you believed him. Basically this Mantra Savita Mantra. The texts do not mention the word Gayatri. They call it Savitaa Mantra and Savitaa means sun which is so bright and full of energy.

It is a Mantra to create an explosive energy in the body that could destroy all negative traits of an individual. The Beej Mantras contained in this Mantra are - Bhu, Bhuvah, Swah, Mahah, Janah, Tapahs and Satyam. These are actually seven inner bodies and this Mantra contains the key to entering the inner bodies. The Mantra ends with Tatsa Viturvarennyam which is actually a method of entering the inner bodies. But this method cannot be understood without the help of a Guru.

So one has to understand the power of Beej Mantras contained in the Mantra. Also one has to realise that the Mantra is not complete. Every Mantra has four parts. Every verse, every couplet has four parts. Similarly all Mantras written have four parts. But Gayatri Mantra does not have four parts.

Tatsaviturvarennyam Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi Dhiyo Yo Nah Prachodayaat.

Where is the fourth part? Who shall reveal it to you?  What is the use of chanting incomplete Mantra.

Actually all Mantras were rendered useless by the ancient Rishis to prevent their misuse. And they did this to either removing some part or adding some irrelevant part. I am telling you all this because I want you to understand some important things. For example such knowledge shall automatically develope on you when you enter the inner bodies. Then all knowledge of the universe shall become available to you. And on linking to the inner bodies all problem shall end.

- Revered Sadgurudev Dr. Narayan Dutt Shrimali
