One who gets to this stage enjoys liberation while being alive and obtains bodiless salvation in the end. Such a one is a great person and has spiritual existence. This stage is obtained by Guru's grace and being worthy of God's mercy by efforts and prayer. 1. Lord of wonder is beyond mind and intellect. He is the greatest and creator worthy or praise. "O wonderful lord, the whole universe is thine cosmic play. Thou are it's creator. 2. Sikh Gurmantar - "True Guru out of his kindness uttered Waheguru the true Mantar" (Bhai Gurdas Ji) 3. Bhai Santokh Singh has explained the meaning of Waheguru in first chapter of Guru Nanak Parkash- Wahe(Wonderful) - Gu(Darkness) Ru (Enligthner). "O True and ever - abiding art thou: the container of Lakshmi " The Prime-val person, "O true and ever abiding art thou: the container of Lakshmi" The primeval person, "O wonderous, beauteous and lustrous Guru" Nothing is equal to Naam. Bhai Santhokh Singh says millions of fasts, sacrificial fires, worship, meditation, vedas reading, penances, charities, baths and million kind of recital. Dharmas don't match Hari naam. Ten years meditation in satyug equals one year meditation in treta which equal one's month's meditation in dwapar which further is equal to one's day meditation in Kalyug. Importance of Naam. Naam's importance knowns shankara, who drank poison silent in his time. Meditation is ten times greater than the sacrificial fire and remembrance by respiration is thousand times greater. Remember Onkar with devotion everyday in secluded sacred place. This way instinctive forces are disciplined and if onkar is meditation upon 20000 times for one year continuously. All sins are destroyed instantly and person remains always happy and peaceful. Kundalni- According to tantra and yoga a nerve lying in 3 1/2 coils like snake in the root of sukhmana is known as kundalini . It gets awakened by Yoga and climb to dasam dwara through Sukhmana. As it goes up yogi feels ecstatic accordingly keeping kundalni in dasam dwar and then getting it down is the completion of Yoga. Surat, Nirat: Hearing and watching dance, kundalini, while in rectum, sex organs, naval cycles remains indulgent in food drink and pleasures when it gets on to heart's ground leaving behind physical pleasures, it has the glimpses of divine light but still there is doubt of getting downwards. Divine inclinations live in the throat. It may slip down again. But when it goes above the throat onto trikuri. Then there is no fear of going back. Here is the realization of comfort and peace which is the out come of god's vision. There is a transparent curtain like glass in between which gets tattered by 21 days continuous practice. Now mind does not go below throat and heart merger with motionless status (Nirban pad) P-1106 "The breath is turned in through the moon channel and retained in the sush mand and turned out through the sun channel uttering six-teen times (God's name) And the mind - potency of the mind is broken and ceases it's outgoing; and it's wildness is tamed and one in drinks (the god's) nectar. O mind, when one contemplates the primal lord, the source of all the virtue, one sense's of duality is stilled. When one dwells on God worthy of being Dwelt upon, and puts faith in the one worthy of devotion, then one becomes one with God, as water mingles with water, Says jaidev: "When I contemplate the God's name. I attain unto the all pervading and detached Lord. " The pranas and then filled pierced not filled again them through moon tone with shabad (letter) reciting. Ong mantar sixtreen times in sun tone. Weakened bodly force and established the unstable mind which is corrigible. Having mounted in the consciousness drank nectar. Adored the creator lord that is the root cause of the beginning of inner mind and all qualities . This way dual doubteness I vanished away. Worshipped- the worthy of worship and kept devotion in for one worthy of devotion. Water mingled with water. Says- Jaidev- that by meditation upon the one who is the prime cause of all I got mingled with Nirvan (Braham desire less) Brham. Maya's play (mirage). It means just as things stated above in the stanza are impossible so is the knowledge without Guru which shows the path. Traditional exponents (gianis) interpret thus- Maya, wife produced her husband (Master). God implying the separateness of individual soul and the soul supreme is due to maya. Son had his father play around implying that individual soul had supreme soul got busy in it's bringing up milk drunk without mammals. Implying maya got individual soul indulgent into sensual pleasures. Son had his own mothers as wife coiled) implying soul got maya's ownership. Mind is without feet yet has long jumps. It's without mouth, yet makes hearty open laughter singing feels happy due to sensual temptations... Individual soul is in reality, without sleep but is sleeping due to darkness (ignorance). It's without body yet indulges in pleasures. Mammal less cow is giving milk maya without stability is giving material comforts. Soul is without the cycle of birth or death yet roam in 84 lacs (8.4 million) reincarnation. That is maya's play. Pranyam: It is fourth part of yoga. According to yog sutra controlling of breathing (inhaling and exhaling of respiration) is called pranyam atrie rishi writes controlling breath and reciting three times giatr is pranayam. Hath Yoga: Hath yog pardeepika says that joining sun and moon is that yoga implying joining Ira and Pingala with Sukhmana. Ashtang: Yam Niyam, Praihar, Dharna, Dhian, Meditation (concentration) samadhi, stopping of breath make efforts and fast of trying to with hold mind and sense organs. Astaiye- renouncing theft. Yam Niyam: Ten means of prohibiting mind and sense organs from temptations and adopting rules of merits. Yam Ahinsa (Non- Violence)- Giving up of torturing and killing of animals. To be truthful line nuneation of falsehood. Asittaiya - giving up theft. Bhramcharya (celibacy)- learning while remaining celibate. Aprogrehi- Renunciation of amassing wealth., rules, cleanliness, sacredness, contentment, patience, penance to equipose in pain or pleasure, reading yoga texts (self study), liberation and recital of mantar, surrender of deeds to God and renunciation of ego: cleanliness contentment penance, posture and the piece of cloth to sit upon while posturing for yoga. Third part of yoga: sitting in yoga meditation in 84 different positions, according to yoga text imitating birds and other objects. Determination: According to Yoga mind concentration in Brahm forgetting all other emotions. Adopt righteousness. Dhian: Contemplation from dhan not pondering implies merging attention on it. Some thing with holding mind form all sides and focusing in single object thought contemplation are valid. Smadhi - Perfect concentration of mind, merger of inner mind into 'dhay' Sehaj yog- Easy meditation and easy distinct yog in different hath yoga. Concentration of mind through naam simran (remembrance) yoga which mentioned in Gurbani as Bhagti Yoga. Sehaj jog described thus. Asa Mohalla 1 (p- 359) Let the Guru's word be thy mind's ear rings and compassion thy coat and submit thou lovingly to this will, thus will thou attain to the glory of sehaj yoga, He who is attained to the great quintessence is forever a yogi, for, he taste the nectar name of the immaculate lord, and his body bathes in the essence of wisdom (1) . I have my seat in my self and have forsaken all dis philation and my horn is the Guru's word and it's music ever rings in my mind (2). Reflection is my begging bowl and awakened intellect my staff and to live in this presence is the ashes I apply to my body. The lord's presence is my daily routine, The Guru's way my love support is to see the lord's light in all, though the garbs by many Says Nanak â€œListen thou, Bharthari a yogi is he who is ever attuned to the transcendent Lord. " Nirurkti explains- Something worthy of believing in Mantra Tantra text says the word worthy of recitation for appears god or for fulfilling purpose is Yoga. Five inclination of Mind. 1. Parmani : To be indulgent in visible things. 2. Viparjai- To consider world as true and brahmas non-existent against Guru's word. 3. Sleep: No realization of jagan-supan- awakening, dreamy and always be in sleepy condition due to ignorance- Sukhopati. 4. Vikalp- Scattered mind.. too much desiring remedy 5. Memorizing- To remember other things at the time of remembering God's Name. Tantar Shastar- In Tantar Shastra - the letters add to 50 and reading them from beginning and end amounts to 100 then first letters of all groups. When added come equal to 8. Therefore 108 bead rosary is meant for all mantras. It is also written that each rashi contains 9 letters. Hence 12 X 9 - 108. Further more each planet contains 4 letters. Hence the aggregate 27 X 4- 108. Also four directions multiplied by 27 planets equals 108. This way 108 bead rosary stands for 108 upinshadas of knowledge. There are 27 planets in the sky and 4 directions of earth. 108 number represents the whole universe. Therefore "Bhram Gyani", the knower of the supreme reality is addressed as respectable, 108 which means that a divine soul is worthy of worship in the Universe. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
