Polarity of Chakras

I have alluded this to a few times in my past blogs.  Every chakra except Sahastrar has a negative downward pole, a consciousness that is directed towards the world.  This is referred to in the Bhagvad Gita as the “Dakshinayana” or lower six months of the calendar.  If a person leaves the body while the chakras …

Meditation on Chakras

I did not get a chance to write yesterdays blogs.  I was orginally planning to write about sex, meditation and yoga.  Is it wrong? Is it right? Is it a hindrance? Is it somewhere in between? There are some unwritten secrets about shakti and sex which Gurudev talked about and was also written by Shankaracharya (one …

Meditation – some more pearls

Todays meditation was not as deep as yesterday.  However, it was more satisfying.  This may come as a surprise but allow me to explain Say you are climbing a 100 steps.  If you climb all the way to the top stay there for a few second and come right back versus you climb 85 steps …

Guidelines for Yoga / Rules of Yoga

I changed the name from rules to guidelines. The reason for calling it rules, is because in my opinion, doing yoga is like going into battle where one is constantly battling ones sanskaras.  In other words, in order to win this battle, certain rules must be followed. If one reads any scriptures regarding Yoga and …

Fishbowl

After 2 days of struggle, I was finally able to go back to my true consciousness.  When certain karmas are about to come into play, or if one does something that is not appropriate, the first thing that happens is the consciousness gets clouded and one is no longer able to go that deep.  Yes, …

From Within

There are no words that can truly describe how the world appears when the consciousness is within.  This turning over of the consciousness, is the only beginning of Yoga.  In the older terminology Gurudev said, “Shakti jagrat thai che”, meaning there is awakening of the shakti.  I can only describe it in limited words. For …

Pearls

I was asked, do you go to Church.  My answer was no, the Church comes to me.  The real church is where there is love for God. What is purity or a pure person?  A person who only has love and desires only for God, is pure.  Everyone else is impure. Love demands nothing in …

Entry for February 08, 2006 A doll made out of salt took a dip in the Ocean! Ego is like the salt doll. Once immersed in the ocean of bliss (GOD) it no longer exists. It is that easy. Just immerse yourself in God. You loose yourself in God. That is why Yogananda said, in …
