LOVE

LOVEA four letter word
fills the entire cosmic space,
Covers the farthest galaxies
along with an infinitesimal ace.
Love is in the
life & death of a star,
It’s the only thing responsible
for who we are.
Love draws the elements together
& makes them link,
It’s in the air,fire & water we drink.

Love puts life into
carbon,oxygen & nitrogen molecules,
And eventually turns them into
lions,humans & mules.
Love holds up a cell to survive,
Love is what keeps
the Earth alive.

Forgiveness,Compassion
are its other names,
With love, any problem
can be easily tamed.
Love is the fruit of
a wholesome deed,
Love is all that you will need.

Love is the life
which you continuously dream,
Once you wake up,
You’ll experience this Love–
The One & Only Supreme.

The Tree of Life

Joel S. Goldsmith

Part 1 of 5

Good afternoon.

        We are trying now to understand the nature of the contemplative way of life, the mystical way of life. And to understand it fully, you will first of all understand that in our human identities there is a conflict between us.  There is a conflict between every man and woman on the face of the earth.  Even in families, even husbands and wives and parents and children – there is a conflict, and the conflict is one of the ego. Each one wants to be something of himself or herself, and that something comes in conflict with that which wants to be something of himself or herself on the other side.

        And so it is that, throughout the human scene, we have always had conflicts –even, even when there is a so-called “peace.”  That…

Why is Krishna Blue? Why is Krishna Black?

The Enquirer

First lets get the color straight. He’s not “blue.” He is śyāma nīla.  

The color śyāma is “Dark (black), with slight blue-green coloration.” A really heavy monsoon cloud, for example, is śyāma. The color nīla is “Dark, black, bluish/greenish-black.” A sapphire (nīla-maṇi) is a common example of this color.

So, basically, Krishna is black with a sapphire-blue luster.

OK, now let’s get to the “why” part.

Why is Krishna black? Why is anything black? What is black? Black is what you see when an object reflects no light. Black things absorb all the light that falls on them, letting nothing go. When something attracts all the light, and nothing escapes, it’s black.

And that’s why Krishna is black, because that’s what Krishna is – All-Attractive.

Throughout the Veda, “light” is used to describe consciousness, because consciousness illuminates existence. Our consciousness can shine its light anywhere. When it…

LIFE OF A BRAHMAN

Carlos Castenada often used a term ‘Sorcerer‘ in his books which means a person who is always connected to the Source.That term can be best used to describe a Brahman.The three gunas or qualities-Sattva,Rajas & Tamas are found in every human in different proportions.Brahman is one of the four class of people who is inclined to have the Sattva guna in highest proportion.Brahman,basically,adheres to the principles of Vedas,the foundations of Hinduism.His primary duty is to practice Dharma.Everything in daily life of a Brahman is a ritual.


Early history of Brahmins-

When the Aryans arrived in India three thousand years ago,the long-established Indus Valley Civilization was on the verge of extinction.After many years,at the time of the Gautama Buddha,Brahmans held a prestigious position among all sects.They were mostly priests & teachers,who were primarily engaged in attaining the highest spiritual knowledge. A Brahman lived an ascetic disciplined life,receiving the minimum necessities of life by spreading & teaching their philosophy.Religious rituals in temples & homes of Hindus had to be performed only by a Brahman.
It was believed by everyone that Brahmins held a sacred knowledge which they kept secret among themselves.They were considered to be the ones who were closest to God or more of a liason between a man & God. This was one point which Gautama Buddha could not accept.He felt if we all are children of God,then everyone should have the ability within to seek the absolute truth.He himself being a Kshatriya, took out on his quest for the ultimate truth.In the end when he was enlightened,he taught his philosophies to others which is now practiced as Buddhism in different countries.
But why was it believed that the ceremonies & rituals could only be performed by Brahmans?What was that sacred knowledge which Brahmans held secret at that time.This question drives my attention.Brahmans believed that if a certain knowledge is kept secret, it becomes more potent.

OM Let both of us protect each other.May both of us enjoy each other.May both of us work together.Let our study become radiant.Let there be no hatred between us.

Present Scenario:
Today in modern India, the situation of Brahmans is worrisome.The community of Brahmans has seen a steep downfall in recent years mainly due to unsatisfying greed & vested interest of many political leaders.Brahmans living in the village are suffering from extreme poor conditions,while those in the cities have lost their spiritual magnificence & wisdom and have taken to over-indulgence of sensual pleasures. The secret knowledge which was their primary asset has been lost somewhere down the line.

For any society to make a progress,a balance has to be maintained.A modern Brahman must remember that his strength lies in his spiritual knowledge & as a Brahman,his motive should not be that of mere personal gain but to work for the welfare of society as well.

PRANAYAM: A WAY TO SPIRITUAL END

The word ‘Prana’ in Pranayam means energy of life-that vital energy which we draw into ourselves from the surrounding universe every moment.Since this energy is obtained primarily by breathing,it may be translated as breath in this particular context.But the word ‘Prana’ has much broader reference for all the powers of the body & all functions of the senses & mind are regarded as expression of the force of Prana.

The importance of Prana is also found in Upanishads.The five elements-earth,water,fire,ether ,air together make the human body gifting us these powerful senses.Once these senses made a boastful assertion-“We hold the body together & support it ” where upon Prana,the primal enenergy,supreme over all of them said, “Do not deceive yourselves.It is I alone, dividing myself five-fold to hold this body together & support it.”But they would not believe him.Prana to justify himself made as if he intended to leave the body.But as he rose & appeared to be going,all the rest soon realized that if he went,they would also have to depart with him.And as the Prana seated himself,the rest found their respective places again.

The symbol of Kundalini awakening is like the rise of a serpent

There is a certain real power coiled up in every being.A huge reserve of spiritual energy is situated at the base of Spine known as Kundalini.The object of Pranayam is to arouse Kundalini & there by control the Prana by regular practice of several breathing exercises. When the Kundalini is aroused it is said to travel up through 6 centres of consciousness,reaching the seventh at the center of the brain.As it reaches the higher centers,it produces various degrees of Enlightenment.

YOGA & BREATH CONTROL

By the period 500 B.C. man had already climbed the ladder of Evolution to a great extent.Only with his feet & hand-made boats, he had reached to every suitable corner of Earth.
Science was still very far from the picture.Man was still  unable to control the natural forces outside & use them to serve himself & his community.We can not say exactly,but perhaps this was the time when Yoga was born in India.During this period, Indian yogis turned their attention to control the forces of nature within the body.

The yogis were aware of the very fact that soul & body are two different things.Although they are different,but they pretend to be one.The string which ties the soul to the body is Breath.

Breath is not just the exchange of Carbon dioxide & oxygen.For different levels of thought & emotion go through,our breath takes on different patterns.You may be either angry,happy,peaceful or sad.During the change of emotions,our breath goes through subtle change.
The founder of ‘Isha Foundation’ (which works for the care of HIV affected people) Sadhguru Vasudev once said, “Whichever way you breathe,that is the way you think.Whichever way you think,that is the way you breathe.”


Hence (under an expert guidance),breath can be used as a tool to do many things with body & mind.In Patanjali sutra of Yoga,it is stated that Mind can be calmed by expulsion & retention of breath.Modern Science agrees that method of respiration affects the whole organism.

Mental disturbances are accompanied by irregular breathing-rapid,shallow & uncontrolled.There are two causes for activities of Mind-
i)Desire
ii)Respiration
Of these,the destruction of one leads to the destruction of both.This is one of the most important knowledge ancient Indians have given to the world.And even today,it remains a mystery for many of us.
