Starting with Kundalini Awakening – known as Self Realization
“With the opening of a single curtain of Sahasrara, the Kundalini comes up. But its Light does not start spreading all around just then. The Kundalini has just come up (to Sahasrara level= the Crown Chakra on top of our heads) and you have saluted the seat of Sadashiva (the God Almighty – the Father aspect). Within you, the Light of Atma (the “Spirit” in Sanskrit) has started flowing hazily. But it has not yet fully blossomed in this brain.”
Heart-Brain Relationship & Implications
“Now, the surprising thing is, that if you want to spread it through your brain, you cannot. Our Brain and our Heart -now a perfect balance of these will have to be shown. You know well, that when you work too much with your intellect, heart-failure occurs. And when you work too much with your heart, the brain fails. There exists a relationship between them, it already exists. It’s a very deep relationship. And because of this deep relationship, when you get your realisation their relationship has to become deeper. The relationship between the heart and this brain should be very deep. The moment it gets completely integrated, your (Chitta) attention becomes completely Parameshwar-Swarup (one with the supreme God).”
Hatha Yoga Teaching on Ego & Super-ego: explanation in Sahaja Yoga with The Third Eye chakra & Ultimate Goal
“This very thing is also said in Hatha-Yoga, that Mana (super-ego= the conditioned part, that is the mind which starts forming habits) and Ahamkara (Ego) both get Laya (=dissolved, disappeared in Sanskrit).
But just by telling like this nobody is going to understand, how can the dissolution of Ego and Super-ego be effected ? So they get after Super-ego, get after Ego. If you beat down the Ego, the Super-ego comes up. If you beat down the Super-ego, the Ego comes up. They just cannot understand that what is this madness?! How will this go ?! How to win over the Super-ego and the Ego?!
There’s only One Door for that: Agnya chakra (known as the Third Eye centre). By working on the Agnya chakra the two: Ego and Super-ego get completely dissolved, and as soon as they get dissolved, the Heart and this Brain first establish a complete concord. But the oneness doesn’t come. It is this Oneness, that we have to achieve.”
Automatic Brake & Accelerator in One means Complete Guru Master State
“So, your Heart, that itself becomes the Sahasrara and your Sahasrara, that itself, the Heart. What you think is in your heart; and whatever is in your heart, that only you think. When your state becomes like this, then, any kind of doubts, any kind of disbelief, any kind of fear.. no such thing remains.
Like, when a person fears, what is done to him ? He is taught through the brain : ‘Look here, there’s nothing to fear. Look, you were fearing for a useless thing. Now take a light and see.’ Then, although he understands through his brain, again he fears.
But when both the things become one, you try to understand this point: that the brain, through which you think, which makes your Manas understand, and takes care of it, if that brain itself becomes your Mana (). .. means, just imagine that there’s such an instrument which has an automatic accelerator and brake; and Both are One. Whenever it wants, it becomes the brake and whenever it wants, it becomes the accelerator. Moreover it Knows Everything.
When such a state comes, then you become the complete Master (Guru). Such a state we should definitely achieve.”
