Love of Nation : First Step to Love of God

It was a lovely evening. The sun was lingering over the Western hills to catch a glimpse of an epoch-making event.

Dr. K.N. Gairola, Health Minister of the Tehri-Garhwal State was addressing a mammoth gathering on the Ganges bank. The local municipality had erected a flag-staff just in front of the Ashram and had invited the Minister to hoist the National Flag. Even during the course of his inevitable political speech, Dr. Gairola made touching references to Siva, to the glory that the presence of saints like Siva brought to the entire State, and the profound spiritual influence that Siva exerted in the people. Even as he concluded his speech, Dr. Gairola requested Siva to give them his Upadesh.

As the flag went up, Siva roared OM OM OM. The entire gathering joined him and it looked as though the powerful current of the Pranava-chanting raised the flag up!

‘Vande Mataram, Vande Mataram, Vande Mataram
Jai Hind Jai Hind Jai Hind Jai Hind Jai Jai Jai Jai Hind’
….
sang Siva and the multitude echoed his Kirtan. Siva has a Kirtan for every
occasion!

Vairagya

‘Constant reflection on the great utterances of the Great,
Sarva Dukham Vivekinah
and developing Mithya-drishti or Dosha Drishti in relation to the objects of the world through discriminative thinking—these will help you to develop true Vairagya,’ said Siva when Sri Jayadayal Goenka of the Gita Press, Gorakhpur, sought Siva’s Darshan today.
As soon as Sri Jayadayalji came in, Siva noticed a wound on his foot, immediately got the necessary dressing from the dispensary and applied the bandage.There they were—Sri Jayadayalji and his party in Siva’s Kutir on the lap of the Ganga—listening to Siva’s words of wisdom on Bhakti, Yoga, Jnana and Vairagya. A member of Sri Jayadayalji’s party gave expression to his admiration of Siva’s work and added that the excellently got-up Diamond Jubilee Commemoration Volume had enabled Siva’s message to spread far and wide.

Hariharananda Baba

Baba was in New York to give initiation in Kriya Yoga. It was a crisp early morning, all the people were sitting quietly in the spacious room, with their offerings of flowers, fruits and little financial donation nicely arranged in front of them. Everything and everybody looked pure, fresh and loving, and Baba was about to start the holy ceremony.
Suddenly a man burst into the room, and mumbling a vague apology for his tardiness, plunked himself down in the first row directly in front of Baba. A wave of repulsion spread slowly across the room. The man was smelly, dirty, unkempt, and he had not brought the proper offerings. On a dirty paper plate he hastily threw a few wilted flowers (which he had probably snatched from the park across the street), five black, rotten bananas (from God knows where!), and his pocket change.

Why the techniques of Kriya Yoga is kept secret?

This question arises in every Kriyaban’s mind. One even thinks that ‘ why we are not even allowed to talk about the experiences we have while practicing Kriya Yoga’? Can anyone initiated in Kriya yoga give initiation to others? Is it like yoga training given in clubs etc.? Answer is noOnly who has completed the yoga-sadhana (all 6 stages) and reverted to origin Brahma and permitted by previous Guru can only initiate others.Physical Guru remaining affixed in Kutastha (yoga-mergence state/Static state of Prana) initiate seeker (kinetic Prana) how to revert to Static Prana. When one practices kriya Pranayama – it’s mainly oblation of Prana Air to Apana air and vice versa – that Prana Air is Guru and Kutastha is Sri Guru. So, Guru state (Prana Air) remaining in disciple is doing kriya. If disciple thinks that he is doing kriya, then it’s misconception. Also, it’s stilling the main 5 airs i.e. Prana Apana, Udana, Vyana & Samana – if there is disbalance in stilling these airs…even a doctor cannot cure this disbalance. So, Yogi Guru is doctor above doctor, he can make the balance happen in disciple…that is why there are instances of seeker trying to do kriya by reading book leading to fatal consequences. It is Guru who can take disciple from kinetic state to still state thus achievement in mergence in Still Prana or God. Is it possible by any Guru….answer is firm NO. Kriyayoga Gurus are rare and it’s by firm lineages…not vague lineages. It’s austere sadhana for Soul Realization. There is a thread between all Gurus in a lineage, so it has been found sometimes Guru’s Guru coming to rescue a disciple from dangers. These Boundless Gurus normally never displays yogic-wealth and emphasise that disciple do kriya diligently. Whole matter is farmly grounded , rational, scientific and no deviation from normal circumstances. Obeisance to God is easy, but achievement of God state is tough…but not impossible…Guru always emphasis that….so firmly grounded.

Heritage of India – Kriya Yoga

Of all God’s creations man is the most wonderful, for all other living beings are limited by their nature relying on their instincts for survival. For example the Tiger’s nature is different from that of an Elephant and that of a Crocodile and so on, but only human beings have the discriminating nature to decide on the options of taking action in every situation. It is for this very reason that he is subject to the Karmic Debt (the law of action and reaction) but that too during deferred life times. Our body does over 40 – 50 thousand actions in a day on its own. Sometimes with knowledge , at times unconsciously and sometimes without even knowing it.
