Why should a yogi not touch

Link to Original Document

There are many Rules a yogi should follow

It is not easy to over come maya. Or Satan. Jesus said get thee behind me. To Satan note that is a yogic technique but more later Many yogi have gone beyond maya or maha maya.

But the battle is long. Difficult. So there were rules that were given

  • Timing of meditation
  • Frequency of meditation
  • When to eat and what to eat
  • Living alone
  • Not to touch others

Most of the others you probably know and you can always ask your Guru. But not to touch others is not only related to sex. Even a general touch Why?

This is because when you become spiritually more in tune, you see that thoughts are not only thinking or conveyed via speech but it is a living power. You can transmit a thought from one person to the other via a power or force. This medium where it travels is called in yoga “payas”. (Good luck finding it on the web) But Devatma Shakti has a good description

So these things when transmitted can get a hold of the other person and change his or her thinking. So being alone and not talking it touching is recommended. You have a tough enough problem with your own thoughts let alone others

In other words what’s app. Social media talking on phone etc can make your progress slow or reverse it

On the other hand talking with a true yogi can be very beneficial

Look at this way , this is an area where you have no experience or little excitement. Some distorted concepts and you are so gullible that even lies seem wonderful. What is the hope ?

So first find someone genuine. And stick to that person

But be careful you don’t fall for a cult.

Remember a yogi will never have a cult or group. His true teaching is only one on one. In private

He does not want many. Just one or Two genuine people. And does not want your money or body

Time passes by

Time passes

Some wishes granted

Some wishes thwarted

The body gets older

A wasted life

On trivial pursuits

All the money

All the fame

Caught in mayas game

Be thou smart

Use Yoga’s Art

Learn to part

From maya’s tart

Win Gods’ grace

Use Guru’s given mace

Finish your race

At record pace

Life is short

Make your choice

Satan or God.

Desires for world

You picked Satan

A life rotten

A goal forgotten

Pick God I urge

Everything in the world

Will hurt you for sure

Leaving tears in the eye

For that’s Satan game

Promise Of pleasure

A liar he is

But in the end

Pain shall rein

I end with a hint

A divine sound

Of fame reknown

It goes by Aum

Pranav it is

Hear it!

Hear it!

Hear it!

Trace the sound

Back to your roots

There you will dine

With Saints divine

That is Yoga

Destroys all Roga

The Gift of a Guru

Your savior he is

Hear Aum again and again

That’s the road

Hear it once

Your sins destroyed

Hear it twice

Break your ties ( to desires)

Hear it thrice

Maya shall tremble

Now hear it ever

No more delirious fever *

Aum Aum Aum

Immerse in it

Hear it in meditation

And leave the world

Forever

  • Satan – pit of fire which is this world, has created this illusionary world hence delirious fever

Examine your mind

If only you kept a mental diary of your mind

If you observe Your mind (and since we identify with mind and all it’s garbage constantly) we can learn something important.

The mind has two tendencies. One is it likes to dwell on things that are fun. It could be anything. Food, sex, movies, gossiping, procastrinating, just being lazy, debates, being arrogant, boasting, being smug etc. As a result, it likes to do those things and looks forward to doing those things. It bides its time waiting for those things

The second thing is it has a strong aversion for things and it avoids it’s. The four letter word – work. It tries to avoid it. It hates some people. So it looks for ways to avoid them. It hates discomfort, it hates waiting, it hates losing, etc

These are the two kleshas – Raag and Dvesha

Of course, as a result of this, the mind creates strategies, Dwells on strategies to avoid work, trying to procure wealth , strategies in dating, fear managing strategies, trying to schedule the future, strategies in stock market, expand business etc

Now observe your mind. Keep a good diary. What is your mind dwelling on all day?

Well someone might say I meditate and read the Bible or Gita or chant. But you do that , sometimes out of fear or because you enjoy reading them. My blog – you may enjoy reading it. You may want to use it to give lectures or brag.

BUT NONE OF IT WILL HELP YOU.

Why not enjoy the joy of God all around you, within you? Seek that. Don’t enjoy the intellectual knowledge or information!

Now count the seconds we spend thinking of God alone and excluding people and other things in life? Most of our time, love and energy is wasted on other things very few on God. And we wonder why do I not connect with God? Why can’t I see him and talk with him?

Sad. Go straight to God
