As sahaja yogis we had Celebrated Easter twice — first in March at Burlington class when we had learnt about the universal qualities of Agnya chakra reflected in the life and message of Shri Jesus Christ (check the mantra of Forgiveness for a real surprise) as well in Lao Tse’s teachings. This past weekend was the Orthodox Easter celebrated and it’s time to share more knowledge as well some “action”. Enjoy the ride.. until the end of the article .. at each turn there is a treat .. for mind, heart, soul and Spirit!
The sage has no mind of his own.
He is aware of the needs of others.
I am good to people who are good.
I am also good to people who are not good.
Because Virtue is goodness.
I have faith in people who are faithful.
I also have faith in people who are not faithful.
Because Virtue is faithfulness.
The sage is shy and humble
—to the world he seems confusing.
Men look to him and listen.
He behaves like a little child.
“…One has to read all these books and all these instructions to put in an effort to go into meditation. All these efforts are actually to lead to the conviction that meditative state is to be achieved through effortless surrendering.
Up to the Agnya center is alright when you are trying to say different mantras, but you will find all the time that the Kundalini stops or is blocked at the Agnya. The reason for this is that when you put effort, you work through your Agnya not effortlessly. So those who are in bhakti they just have to become silent and effortless. So the Kundalini passes through Agnya and clears out through Sahasrara (chakra).
With bhakti only you can counteract our Agnya.
Now the situation of ascent at Agnya is the most difficult. The reason is if you try to pull or push your Kundalini through Agnya you are using an effort. Once you use the effort you block your Agnya.
So at the blockage of Agnya if you just leave the Kundalini to work it out by itself, then your Agnya will cleared out.
But in bhakti with full heart, if you are singing or if you are taking my name, then automatically Agnya opens. But it’s a little complicated thing for people who are very much active with their Agnya. For such people it would be better if they develop the state of thoughtless awareness.
When they watch something they should just try to just watch it and do not allow any thought to come in. You can go on saying (the mantra) “Kshma, Kshma, Kshma“. These thoughts will stop. Try to maintain that state through your sustenance of bhakti.
So the important thing in Sahaja Yoga is after Realization we must completely surrender ourselves to the enjoyment of bhakti. Those who have achieved that, they get this effortless ascent through the Agnya very easily. It cannot be explained as I said.
DAILY CLEARANCE BY PUTTING ATTENTION ON CHAKRAS
“Cleanse it through your Attention. Everyday you must know which chakra to be cleared out. You must know about yourself where is the problem, how it is to be cleansed, how we have to clear it out. Do not take it for granted. ”
“So first of all you must get your chakras alright. On the chakras you must put your attention. After the Samadhi state you will start opening them out properly, clear them out, know what are the chakras that are bad. I have seen people who have very bad few chakras, and many good chakras, but they will be only enjoying the good chakras and not worry about the bad ones.
Pay attention to your bad chakras. Cleanse them, cleanse them. Put all your attention to that. …. Then a state when you become the Complete Spirit at Agnya Chakra.”
