Divinity

The one who is aware of his divinity ,while in the body ,is in a state of bliss beyond description,transcending bondage and liberation.this is here and now.—-Maharishi Ramana.

Comments; Our true nature is bliss and already liberated. but we thinks that e are body which is not true. according to teachings of Vedanta we have became one with with body and mind but our real nature is different. it is blissful where in no misery. this is adhyaropa meaning we supposed to be a body and mind . now question is who o realize our true nature which is sat-chitt-ananda ( bliss). by mediation be will be able to make difference with body and mind and can realize the self.

Tat tam asi

My Guru St Nikka Singh gi described this secret of self-realization. it is very deep but I will said something on it. ‘Tat tam asi’ is an idea which Saints used to tell to their develped devotees . To finding the answer of’ who am I’ everybody said first ‘ I am’ in Sanskrit according to Vadantic language it is ‘ Aham asmi’ meaning ,’I am’ but it is not clear now you will put something as i am Hindu, I am Cristain.I am Scholar or something with it. But for Nirvana or Liberation this ‘ego’ should remove. when ‘ego’ starts we said it ‘Parshin Ahankara’ the effort for medition and worship or need for practice is needed to elimanate ‘ ego’ .now it is very important to understand this wherefrom ‘thought’ is arising Observer is also there. this is our self or lord.

If we understand that this is ‘ me’ then you will know the truth with fullness but it is not easy task ,beacuse we think from long time that I am body and mind. which is not true. now what happens? when we become one with mind it is called as Jiva . jiva is Birti sahit abasa . meaning when thought mix with self it is called Jiva. Some Saints said it Chtt jad ki granthi. meaning knot of Spirit and matter. when we remove this illusion by medition then we understand ‘ Tat tam asi’ meaning ‘ I am that’ for this we needed practices of worship and medition to purify our mind. this experince should be come from withen from our heart no other person can judge this only you will understand this. it is Sva samvad meaning your own experince.

My ideas about Vadanta.

Friends I stayed with a great Saint . his name was Nikka Singh ji he was a great Saint who knows the secret of life. he was a Saint from Nirmal Panth. ( Nirmal Traditation). this traditation comes from Sikh tradition whose founder was Guru Gobind Singh ji . I studied Guruvani, Bhagwad Gita, from my Guru. As I found, these saints are Holy people and do not want money and offerings from the disciples. They want to teach them the secret of life. First, they teach them theory, then and they.

As my burning desire is that I can explain this essential knowledge to someone else. So it is a vast knowledge of human life. I make my mind to write a series of articles about this.

First of all, one thing that takes in mind that Holy Saints have a practical approach to this Vedanta knowledge. I will write a series of articles named’ My ideas about Vedanta. So what I read what I learned from Holy Saints of India, I will write and what practice my guru, instruct me. My experience of meditation I want to share it with someone else.

What is meaning of Vadanta?

According to my knowledge as I learnt from my Guru St. Nikka Singh ji . He was a Perfect real Saint . I studied meaning of Guruvani and Bhagwad Gita. As I found in my life that I wants to explain something what I can explain it. When you are reading any scripture, it is like, knowledge of theory. But after that you have to practice the instructions of a real sage. For example, you want to take driving licence. First, you should read the book for laws and regulations of traffic. Now you can not drive, but you have to pass written exam. And after that you have to learn driving on the road.

Same thing for the knowledge of Vadanta. First, you have to study the scriptures from an enlightened teacher. Then, according to his instructions you have to practical of his instructions. And as his guidance you concentrate on that way. And one day you will find that bliss which is beyond our verbally knowledge. This is divine we can taste it, we can live with it, but we cannot explain it. Only we can say it is like dawn, it is like blooming, it is like dew drops. This is the difference between Scholar and a holy saint. Scholar have way of speech, he knows the art of words, he can explain, but he is still empty handed, he has no taste of bliss or Nirvana.For this hard work on meditation or worship you have to do

It happens in the silence of mind. One day my Guru St. Nikka Singh told us that first we said to followers make a horse of papers, his meaning was we said to a follower study this book that book and try our best to give ideas by theory. But when find that the follower is perfect in this then say now it was a horse of paper now burn it with fire . It is nothing but only knowledge for exploration. The real knowledge is by witnessing the mind. To me he one day said,” leave these scriptures and look everytime to your mind, you will go straight.” by this practice one day I understand it, “.I can only say that the human mind has a great treasure in it.but it is beyond the reach of the mind.

Self and mind.

Just as the sun gives light to the moon the heart lights the mind.–Maharishi Ramana.

Comment; It is very important to understand that Maharish Ramana was an enlightened sage who got this knowledge by not studying from any scripture or go on the feet of an enlightened saint he found the experience by God’s grace or from last lives of good Karmas. That is why I choose for meditation a perfect sage from the 20th century. Because he used to speak from his spiritual experience.

Our mind is not perfect it has no, its own light. It takes light from self or God. Body, mind, or senses take light from Observer or self. Who have reached into the depth of self they said that you are not body and mind.

One time in life of Maharishi Ramana, he was going on a walk with some devotees, he felt some pain in the chest and he sat down and his body starts to become dark and devotees start to cry, he told after this that he was watching that his body is going to be darker and darker and he was aware if this happening and his body was laying dead and his devotees were weeping. After some time I felt that the body starts to move and I sat down and then I told my followers that it is a body which dies but due to the illusion we think that we are the body. Meditation is for this purpose that you can understand. I am not body and mind. According to Vadanta we have to figure out that we are self. That is why we say self-realization.

Dhyana (Meditation).

Merging the mind and breath is’ (Dhyana) and it leads to the natural state when it becomes deep and firm.—–Maharishi Ramana.

Comments; It looks very hard to explain about Samadhi or Dhyana. Because our languages have no capacity to explain it! What comes in the field of our mind or intellect, we can express it, we can explain it or can give any name or form. For example, I saw a car, I can explain it this is Honda car, ford car this model, so many things I can explain of the car. But for non-objective meditation, which has no name and no figure how can I explain it. So like this our Saints give ideas as my Guru St. Nikka Singh I used to explain it, confirm it you are not body, you are not mind, but you are you are ‘ Observer’ ! . This body is a combination of two things. Observer and Observed.Or Seer and Seen, or Watcher and watched,. It had been defined in the 13th Chapter of Bhawad Gita.

Our Self or Consciousness is the Observer and our body, mind. Senses are Observed. Because I can watch my body, my mind, my pleasure and pain. Body changes, we have three changes in our body childhood, youth, old age. And some time sick, some time healthy, and likewise our mind changes moment to moment. Happy, sad,our senses also changes every time. For example, you are going, you saw a dog, then you remember yours friends dog, from dog you remember your friend’s wife. Now in mind you start to love that that lady. So we see that mind changes, body changes, our circumstances changes, but who looks to this change that observer never changes. According to Vadanta there are three stages every day as, waking, dream and deep sleep. These stages of our body changes, but not Observer! .So like this our body change in three stages, childhood, youth and old age. But not OBSERVER changes. so you are The observer, not observed.( Body, mind, etc.) Confirm it that you are deathless spirit.Which have never borne never dies.In meditation or Samadhi we forget our body ,mind, and only bliss exists there. That bliss are called sat-chit-Ananda. That is why most importance of deep meditation or Samadhi. You can understand by this experience otherwise you, never comes to understand by reading of Vadas (spiritual books).And this is very calm and blissful experience. But we can understand by God, s grace in our heart.

This is teaching of Maharishi Ramana that merging the mind and breath in the self is Dhyana.

Bhagavad-Gita

Chapter 2. Solaka 13th.

As the Soul passes, in this body through childhood, youth, and old age, likewise it takes the next body after this body. The sage is not perplexed by this.

Comment; Human body is not destination where we have to stop. Purpose of this body according to Vadic knowledge , we have to work here for our self-realization or meet with the Lord which is our origin . Our mind can become one with the self like a stream which merge with an ocean. This is the idea of our Saints.

The way of knowledge

There is nothing on earth equal in purity to the wisdom. He who becomes purified by yoga finds this in himself. In his self in the course of time.—-Gita Chapter 4th Solaka 10th.

Comment; I think this Solaka of Gita is very important. The whole truth has been told here. Simply we have already bliss in our hearts, but the problem is that we have to purify our hearts. Who can do it with Yoga finds it already there? So sell -realisation is not such thing which we have to purchase from the market. Only our task is to purify our hearts by Yoga.

Bhagwad Gita.

He who does work which he ought to do without seeking its fruit he is the samnyasa, and he is the yogin not he who does not light the sacred fire and performs no rites.—– Solaka 1, Chepter 6.

Comments; the meaning of this solaka is that who does not want the fruit of his karma, but he is doing his duty to work he is true samnyasa and yogi. And he who does rituals by fire is not true yogi. It has a great meaning. Our Kamana and vassanas are the seeds of our rebirth. But if we are doing our karmas without wanting any fruit, then you have not kamanas and vassanas . Now you are not attached to any fruit. Meaning you have not seeds of rebirth. And your act or karma will become easier and it will no tiring. Because it will become fun for you, do not worry about fruit you will find more fruit. This is the fact.
