Kumbh Mela : A place where many great saints gather. One should attend to the Kumbh Mela. In terms of Yoga, Kumbh means or refers to the head and mela is a gathering of the prana (withdrawn from the entire body). When that happens, one can say, we have attended the kumbh mela. Here all great divine souls are there.
Yesterday, something unusual happened. We were at another physicians place. A group of people were sitting. I remained silent. This was a different kind of silence. Silence of the mind and was at the same time I was within. While I was within, the mind, the people and the room was vibrating with my presence. The people in reality were dead – meaning dead from the reality of God and his vibration. But Jesus told him, “Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead. Everything was vibrating and the vibration was me. I believe this was the universal prana and the beginnng of being established in Atman. This is also known as Christ consciousness or son of God.
Where is the proof? The proof for me and me alone was the thoughts of everyone in the room were relatively more clear, their thoughts and their feelings. Not only that silently observing it, I was able to have some influence and control over it.
I can understand why the great rishis call this world Maya – an illusion. They refer to it as the divine lila. This is because at t his level, it is an illusion since te world seems to be working based on the thoughts that arise from me!. I could only stay in that for about an hour but it was interesting. Interestingly there was no feeling in me. A silent spectater.
This reminds me of my experience a while ago. I had an encounter with Maya or Satan. Everyword that came from the divine was twisted and turned! And suddenly this one maya became multiple and every multiplicity twisted everything, misrepresented everything that came from the Divie. If the divine said Good, maya made and turned it into bad. This was done by Maya not out of disrespect or hatred or uncaring. It was just a royal mischief! This is the beginning of creation. A royal mischeif. I am definately not at the stage where I can call it maya or sport. For me it is a mischief – a very unpleasant mischeif.
These thoughts are similar to those of Mother, Sri Aurobindo, Bible, Paramhansa Yogananda.
He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature; for he is a liar, and the father of lies.” (John 8:44). The word he refers to Lucifer / Satan.
Father of lies ! Lies refers to this creation. Everything in this creation is a lie. How is it a lie. Everything is God and yet we see it not! Everything is his love and we see it not! Isnt that a great lie? Satan, Maya makes us see this universe, this entire creation in a way that it is not! What a mischief! What an illusion! What a Lila!
The beginning of this witness truly occurs at the Agna chakra. However, for the soul to experience this, the soul has to fully surrendered to God. This complete surrender occurs when the Anahata chakra turns upwards. When the anhata chakra turns upwards, the sound is that of the gong bell or a drum. Some may experience it like hum, hum, hum. Out of the initial sohum, sa and aham gets dropped off and becomes hum. This is the sound of Paundra – the conch bell of Bhima. The ego gets disintegrated. Lately I have been able to to turn the anahata chakra upwards and remain in this for a while in meditation. (ref God talks with Arujuna – Paramhansa Yogananda)
