The ego

The ego submits only when it recognize the higher power. such a recognition is surrender or submission. otherwise ego remains stuck up like an image carved on a tower ,making carved on the tower. making a pretense by its strained look and posture that it is supported the tower on its shoulders. the ego cannot exist without power but thinks that it acts of its own accord.—– Maharishi Ramana.

Comment; our ego is the main cause of our illusion. it starts from ‘ I’ we say it ‘ AHAM VIRTI’ first of all ‘ I AM’ comes in mind which our mother thought. then other thoughts arises. this ‘ I ‘ is false and starting of ego. as we see the figure of ATLAS it looks that man is holding the earth and fells it too heavy . but figure is supported himself. like wise every work is going according Gods will and we put load on our-self .only by surrender or submission we can loose our ego.

What we have to do?

To enquire ,silently and deeply ,as the source of the mind ,the ‘I’ ,

alone is self-inquiry. ideas as ‘ I am that’ or I am not this’ are but aids.– Maharishi Ramana.

Comment; This is my blog on meditation. I want to help for meditation which is eternal peace. This is only way that I can do. If anybody wants to understand this art , you can send me messages and will help my best. Maharishi Ramana why I choose because in this time his words are like dew- drops . he was enlightened without any reading of scriptures, without going anywhere. His words came from depths of Samadhi.in these words he said that you should enquire in the mind, you should look inside where from words coming? you will understand after some practice that ‘I’ is the first thought where from other thoughts are arises. when you will trace that source ,in absence of thoughts you will find a new dimension of bliss which you are!!!

Mind control

These words are spoken by Maharishi Ramana from deep Samadhi.

Having thus explained the truth regarding the heart, Sri Ramana Muni , the best among the knowers of truth, speaking of method of controlling the mind.

” Men attached to sense- objects , ever obsessed by the thought find it difficult to control the mind because of the strength of their vasanas

Comment;  what is the need for mind- control? because in the stillness of mind we can understand our self which is bliss and nobody can explain this! when we want to practice the meditation we have to go inward. but we find that worldly- objects in the mind becomes our obstacles. as Jesus said,” your mind will follow your attachments like money, property, etc” so we find it hard to still the mind or control the mind.

As in Bhagwat Gita in 6th chapter sloka 4th. , When one does not get attached to the objects of sense-objects then he is said to have attained yoga.”

A question to Maharishi Ramana

Devotee; is it enough to practice of  inwardness or a saddaka should be thinking,” aham brahsmi”  ( I am that)?

Maharishi Ramana; the Main thing is the practice of inwardness. buddha bihksu consider it Nirwana’  absence of ‘ego’ but we said that when the mind emerges in the self which is source it is liberation. there is no need to say,’ Aham Brhamasmi’. because for saying this there should be,’ I’  which is ‘ego’. only kill the ‘ego’ it is enough!  and we Hindu says when the mind emerges in the self( Atman).  this is liberation. we can do it by searching the source of ‘ I’ thought. if ‘I’ would not be dissolved then there will not be ,’ sunayata’ then saddaka will go to sleep.

actually, our self remains forever. the body takes birth and it dies but our ‘ self’ is limitless. our problem is that we think to body-mind as ‘I’ .  in the language of Vedanta it is due to illusion.

Two types of learning Vedanta

As my guru st.Nikka Singh ji advised there is two types of learning. first of all, we have to understand the intellectual knowledge. first of all that what we want from this knowledge.  as we can see that in the world there is not anything which is permanent. our body which comes in this world is not permanent. we born and dies one day.  our body our mind also changeable, our relationship also is changeable. there is nothing in this world that remains forever. but our real self is permanent. there are so many examples that are written in Guruvani so many examples are given.

as a guest comes in the night and loves the family but the next day he left the house. it is like running on the roof which can not go longer.it is like stream of flowers, which are giving delight this time but the next day they will be a fad. it is like a young girl who will go to his husband’s house and no more in his father’s house. this world is like a lightning in the sky which is just for a moment. which is seen it is not permanent, but who sees that observer in this body is permanent. but sakshi or observer we can not see him. so to understand the knowledge of seer is real knowledge. according to Vadas vocabulary, it is called ‘ pera prakarti’ learning of ‘self’.this knowledge we can not explain by the intellect, we can take experience by searching inward.  for this devotion and meditation is needed. but which we explain that is verbally , we can explain by language, it is called ‘upara learning. first, our Gurus or saints explain ‘ upara knowledge’ by holy books, but in last books are not needed. which was thought to us that we find in our hearts that is called ‘ para prakirti’. it is a vast subject I will explain as my best.

note; if any help is needed then you can send a message.

To keep awake.

for meditation when we sit we are aware of our mind, we have to just observe our thoughts, not interpreting, not giving any ideas, what is our traditional knowledge we are not putting in it, just observation is enough. if we put our ideas then we are feeding the mind, but we are deleting the mind.

and in our activities as work, or doing something as washing dishes . so then we have to keep awake . when we do something with awareness then our mind can not run to much. there is a beauty in working then. suppose you are praying and you are not awake then you will be not inspired that day but when you are doing  wholly  with awareness then it has a great relaxation.

Conquer your mind and you will conquer the world.

                               Guru Nanak said,” Conquer your mind and you will conquer the world.”

so we can see the beauty of these words, we want to be happy but does not know that happiness comes when our mind does not run after worldly things. Buddha said that we are slave of our demands. needs are an other things. we does not know how our mind works. we knows kings, Emperors, they were not be able handle their mind.

                                                                                           Alexander the great he had dream to win the world, and when he reached in India there he got a fever and died there. he had ordered to his ministers that when they took me for funeral my hands should be out of the coffin  so that people can see that I am going empty handed. so he realized that what I have done killing to the innocent people, ladies, children that was my fault. so we can see these bloody wars, killings, from the beginning, what we found, you can see so many Hitler, this story of persecution ,never we found anything, but we never learn from this because this is going on and on.

                                                                                         there was a story in our eleventh of an American writer of civil war. a farmer was plowing field, his grand son and grand daughter were behind him. there comes some bones by plow  and his grand son asked what is it ? he told that in U.S there was a bloody war with one another. and grand daughter asked why they fight? but old man was not able to describe then, then grand son asked then grandpa what they find. and old man had tears in his eyes. we formed organizations but still problem is there. we heard so many times kids shouted guns in schools. so I think we are not able to learn about our minds. who they works, when anger arises in us, when hate comes, when jealously comes , because we can do if we know the art of meditation.

meditation

I want to share this knowledge of Vedanta as I learned something from my spiritual guru st Nikka Singh ji. so I will try a blog on this subject which is very important for the seeker of truth.my

I lived some years with st. Nikka Sing ji. he was a holy saint from Nirmal tradition. This tradition comes from the Sikh line. the last Guru Gobind Singh ji was the founder of Nirmal tradition. in his life when Guru Gobind Singh was raising an army against mogul empire. because of that time . King Arungjab was very cruel and he was killing to Hindus in India because wanted to change their religion from Hindu to Muslim. this is the reason for the sacrifice of Guru Teg bahadur. that time after the sacrifice of Guru Teg Bahadar.  Tenth Guru Gobind Singh started to rais an army and he wants to make intellectual people for teaching spiritual ideas of Guruvani and Vadas. so he sent five Sikh followers to Benaras for learning of holy books so that training weapons and Vadas can go side by side.

ST Nikka Singh ji was from this line .it is called, ‘ Nirmal panth’  meaning the Nirmal line. from the Nirmal line there were so many saints comes. my reason of writing this blog is that in these days the real meaning of Bhagti and meditation has lost because people have become so many materialistic  , they can not think of such a mysterious knowledge that leads to the human mind in eternal peace. the very demond of our mind is peace.

Liberation is now.

If we wants to know what is meditation or what is the secret of life, which is bliss, or ecstasy , it is not for away at any holy place or in any scripture, it lies in your heart, but just we have to look at our minds. if we do practice of this and know the art of observation, then we can be able to do so. because it is not finding it is already there, we have to change our focus of consciousness. often our consciousness remains at worldly objects. we can see tree, a flower, face of our dear friend, or these things remains in our minds. a car, a house, bank balance, son, wife etc. but when we turn our consciousness inward , or we starts to look inside , we close our eyes and observe the working of our mind than it starts to delete. and when we do this , our thoughts tarts to minimize, and repeating this , to trace every root of our thoughts, we will be able to get that eternal peace. this is real meditation. in working time when we will be aware of our mind, then we can find that peace midst of our working also , but in starting it should be in sitting, in starting it should be done when mind is fresh like in the morning, calm atmosphere also helps us for this. so I think it is a ancient science which provide us eternal bliss. This bliss is our origin, we can not satisfy without knowing this. Guru Nanak said, ‘ who wins the mind, he wins the world.’ it is very write, so many kings, dictators, wanted to win the world but all in a vain. they killed so many people, kids, destroyed the houses, but in last they went empty handed from here. Alexander the great was also victim of this disease,  but after winning half of his plan he died in India. and history tells that he ordered his ministers when you take me for  grave yard my hands should be out of the coffin  so that people can see that Alexander the great is going empty handed. you can not count bloody wars which had happened till now. kings of the kings can not rule over there mind ,that is way they starts this madness. but who win there mind like Jesus, Guru Nanak, we worship for them because they distribute love and peace. so who important is to rule over our mind. and by winning our mind we finds an eternal peace for which every Prophet, saint, is indicating us. so the experience of bliss is such profound, calm, sweet, that we can not explain it verbally,  Kabir said, it is like this as a person who can not speak eats sweets but it gives only body signs but can not speak it. because it is not matter of the language. that is the problem of saints. in last after enlightenment  every saint has the same experience. you will be astonish to see Johns message to Corinthians 6: 1-13, 7: 2-4. what he wrote as his advise to then this is what Buddha used to advise his followers. because the experience is the same. he sais,’ See , now is acceptable time; now is the day of salvation!’. that every saint says even he may be lama or Hindu, that salvation has no past and future and no time and space.

If any time you slept well at the day time, and when you awake every thing out side becomes more beautiful, your kids, wife, trees, what happens, mind goes to rest not thinking and due to stillness of mind out side becomes beautiful. so like this when we goes in Samadhi our mind do rest there and out side everything becomes so calm, profound,  and calm. so if one time you touch that bliss then you will be able to know this. some people say they have no time for meditation as Kathy said, but we have time for fighting, quarrels, but no have time for mantel peace. and if we do meditation we can do our work more happily, calmness, profoundness. because  than we have much energy. I heard that a man from U.K. was not believer in God. but some time he went to India, he saw people there not working, but sitting gossiping, some body goes to temples, Churches, but they are living very well, he wrote that I was wrong there should be God. because they are not doing anything but living well and every time praying to God so I think he should be anywhere.

Time of the meditation should when our mind is fresh, in morning, or after body exercise, dance, running, yoga, ext. then we can pick that thread easily. when our mind is at rest by music or any other environments, but it is needed in starting after some achievement it will be very easy even midst of the work. It was my speech in class yesterday 8-26-2014.

About Psalm 139: 1-12, 23-24.

It is what I am writing is summary of what I described in my meditation class;

My Guru ST nikka singh ji  used to explain us when I was studying Gita in 1982. he was a real teacher who know the truth of life. he never touched money whole of his life . then he was about 96 of age.

he used to repeat according the knowledge of Bhagwad Gita Chapter 13.  ‘ you are not body, you are not mind, you are not sense organs, you are observer. who watches to your mind, body, you are that. when you think some thing observer remains before your thought. he never born never dies. you think that you are body that is the whole problem. when you go inward , your mind goes and which remains that bliss that you are.

Now I comes on Psalm 139: 1-12, 23-24.

O lord ,you have searched me and know me. you know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from far away.

comment; the same thing , that observer in us knows to every action, when we sit and when we rise up. you have fell it that some thing in us watches our thoughts, you say first I wants to go there but now I wants to go an other side. so meaning of this mind is changeable but watcher is not changeable. and one thing more when Psalm 139 says ,” O lord ,you have searched me and know me” every saint speaks like this which ever he may be from any realign of the world, that he tried his best but he was not able to do this and when lord wanted him, the he searched me, this is real grace. I was not able to do this but by his grace I became eligible to find him. because what I did it was very little.

3 ; you search out my path, and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways.

4; Even before a word is on my tongue ,o lord you know it completely.( that was my Guru used to say there is something who is before when thought arises.).

5; you hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me .

6; such knowledge is so wonderful for me ;it is so high that I can not attain it.

you can see the beauty of it ,when you start to observe your thoughts they starts to minimize and eternal bliss remains there. this is what is real meditation. then you will be able to find a new life. so he said,” such knowledge I so wonderful for me; it is so high that I can not attain it. ” but if we can do it in the right way it leads us toward Immorality  in this life.

7; where can I go from your spirit? or where can I flee from your presence?

8 ; If I ascend to heaven, you will be there, if I make my bed in sheol, ( under earth)    you will be there.

9 If I take the wings of the morning and settle at the farthest limits of the sea.

10; Even there your hand shell lead me, and your right hand shall hold me fast.

11; If you say ,” Surely darkness shall cover me, and light around me become night.”

12; Even the darkness is not dark to you. the night is as bright as the day, for darkness is as light to you.

23; Search me ,O God and know my heart,; test me and know my thoughts.

24; see if there is any wicked way in me , and lead me in the way everlasting.

comment; when we stat to observing our thoughts, what we find there ? we were aware of our wicked ways. Krishanamurti used to say,’ If you watch your frustration ,disorder out of that comes order, this is saint indicating us.
