Almighty God’s most beloved child viz. mankind can no longer continue to remain in a downfallen state as is seen today. God’s supreme artistic creation that is planet earth can no longer remain in the pit of downfall. God has created earth with a lot of soul power and divine hope. He cannot allow it to remain demeaned anymore. Although a gardener is handed over a garden to look after it the garden can never be sold to him. This world’s management no doubt has been handed over to mankind. He was asked to see to it that planet earth was managed well, maintained beautifully, secure and rendered highly advanced. Yet if he fails to do this and becomes unruly instead man’s whims and fancy attitude cannot be allowed to rule earth. The one who has planted this garden called earth with such zeal, zest and grand materials shall henceforth make new arrangements to look after earth in a well managed way. He shall change the gardener, he shall reform the mode of looking after this garden or else whatever he does shall be such that no longer shall planet earth be to remain in a downfallen state as is seen today.
God these days is immersed in rendering this beautiful garden called earth well managed. He is about to make sweeping changes in the present day haywire management witnessed. The reason is that today’s downfallen state is bang opposite to the divine imagination of Almighty God. It just does not fit into God’s divine plans for planet earth. The way in which the world is being looked after today that if it continues thus for more time it shall definitely lead to world humanity committing mass suicide. In this manner our earth’s pride and glory shall get pounded to naught.
Since man is God’s eldest son and the prince amongst all creatures no doubt he has been handed over the task of managing this world. Man has been given this golden chance by Almighty God to do something great and in it God does not intervene. Yet when this world management goes haywire God cannot remain a silent witness to it. No doubt children are given freedom to play in the garden outside one’s home yet when the child tries to play with broken glass pieces or play with fire his mother comes running to him. Not only does she obstruct the child from misbehaving but scolds him also, so that in future, he refrains from harming himself. This sort of fear has to be instilled during such dangerous situations. This is also taking place in our world these days.
Man immersed himself in playing with toys and forgot to attain the true goal of human life. A child is sent to school to study but many times he midway starts playing and roaming about here and there. He hence fails to reach his school. At that time he is pulled up by his teachers and parents. The teacher knows that only if the child studies properly that he shall rise higher up the ladder of life. If instead of studying the child just keeps playing and fooling around he shall only repent at leisure. This same message is being given to world humans by Almighty Lord our divine father.
Man has been given extra facilities that with its apt usage he can carry out appointed tasks smoothly. The responsibility given to him can be shouldered optimally and with ease. Yet if on getting immersed in these facilities man forgets to carry out his duties only harm can accrue. If a govt. official is given a jeep to transport important materials and instead of this he sets off to watch dance shows etc then the govt. duties shall remain unfulfilled. Hence since this official has failed in his duties he shall be meted out due punishment by the govt.
These days something of the above is taking place. Mankind was given extraordinary facilities by Almighty God. His body was given much more expertise not seen in the bodies of other creatures numbering to 8.4 million species. Which other creature knows how to talk? Which other creature possesses such a fantastic machine called the mind and brain in order to think? Which other creature has such highly advanced sense organs? This extra boon from God to man is not bias on his part and that no injustice has been meted out to other creatures. This boon is given to carry out extraordinary tasks that predominate with rendering this beautiful world creation of Almighty God well managed. Yet if man misuses this boon for sense titillation, appeasing his lowly ego, fulfilling selfish desires etc and that he limits his actions to just satisfying his selfish greed it can only be called misfortune.
Man has also been given other material grandeur. A happy family, means for entertainment etc are there for all to see. Do other creatures possess such a well organized society and family lifestyle as man possesses? Say which other creature owns so many material pleasures and facilities? Which other creature has got facilities like education, medical aid, decoration, art, vehicles, houses, income, entertainment etc? Why has only man been given such extra facilities? The most straightforward easy answer is that with the help of these facilities akin to collector, minister etc man can execute his social responsibilities easily and optimally. A minister is given a car for touring places and carrying out govt. tasks. Yet if this minister instead gives it away for hire to earn a personal income from it then since this is illegal and unethical he shall duly get punished. Today mankind is doing exactly this because all comforts facilities given to him by God is hoarded by him as his personal wealth. He failed to use it to carry out righteous duties towards society. Instead of using these gifts of God for carrying out divine world welfare tasks he has misused them for his own greed, deluded attachment to wife etc and egoistic selfish endeavors. He looks upon this attitude of his as his ‘shrewdness’, ‘birthright’ and ‘good deed’. Whatever he possesses is misused so much by him that he has no time to spare for attaining the true goal of human life that chiefly involves righteous duties for world well being.
Today human activities are taking the form of an unfortunate accident. Thus only dire results of it are being faced by us all today. If due to alcohol intake the brain goes awry all bodily activities like walking, talking etc become unruly. How can our earth remain well balanced if the manager of this world i.e. mankind goes around behaving lowly and looses all forms of self control? How can the world remain normal? Only blindness and lopsided situations can rule the world. And this is what we are witnessing today. Wherever one glances only dark gloom prevails. Discipline and self control are evaporating to naught. Unruliness is waving its flag. Righteous duties have been thrown away and people selfishly demand their rights only. Anyone possessing wealth uses it only for selfish ends. No one pays heed to justice and ethics. Crime and tainted activities are ruling the roost, the world over. Everyone complains about others and none experience self contentment. Externally man puts on the garb of civility and culture but within only taints and wickedness reek.
The above emits dire results in the external world which is there for all to see today. No aspect of life is devoid of taints and distortions. Whether it is the body, brain, soul, wealth, society etc the situation is but hopeless. Whether it is the field of religion, spirituality, intellectualism, economics, social etc man by imbibing hypocrisy and hazards is rushing towards total world annihilation and destruction. Under such circumstances everywhere only sorrow, poverty, anguish, fights etc are on the rise.
But such a despicable situation cannot last for long. If it does continue man shall appear nothing short of a beast and ghost. Thus each one drinking the other’s blood shall see to it that human existence becomes totally extinct. Nuclear bombs, missiles etc shall uproot the very existence of human beings in this world. All this shall now no longer be allowed to happen. Almighty God cannot accept such hazards to destroy his creation. Lord Mahakal is now carrying with him his weapon to mete out punishment. Human viewpoint of life and behavior shall perforce have to transform positively. Whether man likes it or not he shall have to change for the better. Lord Mahakal as per his promise in the Bhagwad Geeta scripture (‘Tadatmanam srijamyaham’) shall convert world imbalance of today into optimal balance. This time instead of incarnating as a human being (Avatar) he shall use the process akin to cyclonic storms. This is called Era Transformation wherein world human psyche shall be transformed into a wholesome pious one.
THE NECTARINE SPEECH OF PRAJNA AVATAR
Everyone has in unison accepted the great import of the immortal nectar of divine discourses along with its glory. As per Puranas or Indian Mythology the Knower of Vedas viz. Maharshi Vyasji although having compiled and edited the 4 Vedas did not attain the pinnacle of soul peace and spiritual advancement. At that time he placed forth this inner anguish at the feet of HH Devarshi Naradji. Naradji, a master of the art of living while solving Vyasji’s problem said: Life is synonymous with sensitivity. Life advances in tandem with the sprouting, blooming and growth of sensitive emotions. There is no difference between a corpse and a person lacking sacred sensitive sentiments or Bhavasamvedana. Even though both augment their external form n fold yet wherever they reside they spread the foul odor tainted unethical activities all around them. Hence the fount that transforms this foul odor into nectarine fragrance, giving vile tainted unethical activities the form of true great glorious activities and rejuvenating that which is dead is called Bhagwatkatha or immortal nectar of divine discourses. Bhagwatkatha or immortal nectar of divine discourses is such a Paras or touchstone that on merely touching it desires, spiritual practices, dry arguments, atheism and doubts-suspicions get positively transformed from their very roots. Due to the irrigated immortal nectar of Bhagwatkatha or immortal nectar of divine discourses a life reeking with restlessness and agony is replaced with brim full measure of sweet peace and unlimited ecstatic bliss.
This great glory of Bhagwatkatha or immortal nectar of divine discourses is now being eulogized not only by devotees but great leading thinkers of the world a psychologists/psychiatrists/parapsychology experts too. The author of the book ‘Psychology with a soul’ Jean Hardy says: The principles that induce crime and sins in a person’s life are man’s thoughts and Sanskars or psychic imprints of past and present lifetimes. No doubt thoughts transform for the better on reading great glorious literature and self introspection via scriptural studies yet these Sanskars or psychic imprints are so tough and complex that transforming them from their very roots is not easily possible. Hence when we read and hear about the great magnanimous lives of great saintly people and inspiring incidences in their lives oozing with sacred sensitive sentiments or Bhavasamvedana our psychic imprints that are so tough and complex start melting away to naught fairly easily and they yearn to mold themselves as per the great life of such divine saints. Stupendous positive transformations can hence be perceived both at the surface level and in the inner core personality of human life.
Possibly it is the above that is termed Buddhi Yoga or Yoga of Divine Intellect by Lord Shri Krishna in the Bhagwad Geeta. He while discussing the nature of his beloved devotees and boons that he bestows on them says:
Macchitta madgataprana bodhayantaha parasparam.
Kathayantashcha mam nityam tushyanti cha ramanti cha.
Tesham satatayuktanam bhajatam pritipurvakam.
Dadami buddhiyogam tama yena mamupayanti te.
MEANING: Devotees known to ceaselessly immerse their minds in me (God) and those who surrender their very lives for me discuss only my Lilas or divine sports and Bhagwatkatha or immortal nectar of divine discourses amongst themselves. It is such sacred discussion that satiates their soul and thus they sport in it each moment. It is to such unswerving steadfast devotees that I bestow Buddhi Yoga or Yoga of Divine Intellect via which they attain me (Self-God Realization).
The allegories of Bhagwatkatha or immortal nectar of divine discourses are varied and its spiritual benefit is boundless. No doubt in various countries, religions, sects etc they are different in form yet its presence is perceived everywhere equally. The Lilas or divine sports of God, Avatars, Prophets etc maybe sung and heard anywhere in any form yet it can only aid the soul of devotees ooze with divine ecstatic bliss. Every form of it is divinely endearing and every hue is radiant. Yes! They are so much more in measure that they cannot be totally counted. It is hence that Goswami Tulsidasji perforce said:
‘Hari anant hari katha ananta’
Almighty God with his infinite forms manifests one particular one as per the contemporary era prevalent at that time. These are discussed in detail as Dashavatar (10 Avatars) in Puranas or Indian Mythology. Yes! The aim of each Avatar of his is one only and that is Era Transformation or Yuga Parivartan. Taking up this mission of Era Transformation or Yuga Parivartan in order to fufill his eternal Sankalpa or mental resolve of ‘Sambhavami yugey yugey’ divine consciousness incarnated in the form of ‘Shriram Sharma Acharyaji’.
Our Revered Gurudeva Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharyaji in the form of a representative of eternal divine existence or Almighty God had appeared in the midst of us all. Each one of us adores discussing his Lilas or divine sports of God and his Bhagwatkatha or immortal nectar of divine discourses. On merely remembering him, it helps in submerging our sacred sentiments and thoughts in the sanctified lake of faith and trust in God. This discussion has been taken from the books ‘Companion in Solitude’ and ‘Hamari Vasiyat evam virasat’ penned by Revered Gurudeva Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharyaji himself. In the form of 1990 AD Akhand Jyoti Magazine write-up and special series of articles in year following thereafter these very pious memories have been re invoked. The meritorious incidences in the life of his holy consort HH Vandaniya Mataji Bhagwati Devi Sharma had been published after the divine departure of Revered Gurudeva Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharyaji from this mortal world in Akhand Jyoti Magazine as ‘Divine Mother’s volume’. Round about that time from the Gayatri Tapobhumi in Mathura-India a book called ‘Prajnavatar Hamarey Gurudeva’ was published wherein many aspects of the life of our beloved icon Revered Gurudeva Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharyaji has been detailed.
Revered Gurudeva Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharyaji maybe one, even his inseparable Divine Energy in the form of HH Vandaniya Bhagwati Devi Sharma Mataji maybe one yet the episodes of the life of this Divine Rishi Couple are infinite in number, ooze with divine immortal nectar and are beyond measure. Each moment a new form of it unfolds. No doubt Maryada Purshottam Lord Shri Ram and his consort Mother Seetaji were complete (Purna) and one without a second yet we can never fully describe their Lilas or divine sports since these are endless. This river of divine discourse commenced by Maharshi Valmikiji has passed on from one Ghat (jetty) to another in the form of it written by great seers like Kamban, Tulsidas, Krutivas etc and even today it is flowing in newer forms. The same holds true for the Bhagwatkatha or immortal nectar of divine discourses regarding Prajnavatar. Whatever has been talked about it so far is just miniscule in measure and what is being said regarding it as of now too is miniscule. In future whatever shall be spoken too shall be miniscule and hence incomplete or Apurna. This then is its specialty. Yet even a speck of it touches the bosom and soul of a devotee can render him super great from a low stature person and complete from his previous incomplete nature. It is with this very experience of sacred sentiments of devotion that we are placing before the beloved children of Revered Gurudeva Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharyaji and HH Vandaniya Bhagwati Devi Sharma Mataji their life story Lilas or divine sports. We are praying that by remembering all this it shall unfold the mystery of the Guru principle in our lives and that the lotus of divine love shall bloom open in the lake of our inner consciousness.
THE LIFE SKETCH OF OUR REVERED GURUDEVA YUGA PURUSHA AND YUGA DRISHTA PANDIT SHRIRAM SHARMA ACHARYAJI
Yuga Drishta Revered Gurudeva Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharyaji despite the plea of his followers refrained from allowing the unfolding of the inner core aspects of his life right up till the year 1970-71 AD. His life was so straightforward and transparent that each one of us would look upon him as an inseparable kin of ours and that we felt our soul was one with his divine cosmic soul. Who exactly was he? What exactly is he? With what huge measure of a Sankalpa or mental resolve did he appear in our midst? All this was understood only by those who had deeply mentally reflected over literature penned by him. This included deep self study or Swadhyaya of the ‘Akhand Jyoti Magazine’ which was Yuga Drishta Revered Gurudeva Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharyaji’s very life force or Prana. He casted his holy consort HH Vandaniya Bhagwati Devi Sharma Mataji in his own divine mold and hence each sacred breath of this divine couple was surrendered only for world welfare and well being. Both united reinstated a divine mission akin to sowing seeds of the huge banyan tree that today has grown in a huge form that is there for entire world human society to see. By living a true Brahminhood way of life and spiritual penance revolving around the axis of Super Energy Gayatri and Yajnas he showcased how to transform the present day withered demeaned state of world society into a new refreshing form. Its example shall be easily understood when respected readers read the following pages of this e book. At each place via incidences of his life detailed here one gets a glimpse of his sacred psyche oozing with compassion for the entire world. At certain places we get a glimpse of his warrior like nature to manfully and valiantly combat vile activities and indolent blind beliefs prevalent the world over. We have classified his entire life sketch in various chapters. Amongst these many episodes at many places can be found described as words used varied ways. This does not mean that this is but ‘boring’ and ‘useless’ repetition. The reason is that we are forced to do this because otherwise incidences detailed cannot be deeply understood clearly by readers. For example description of the Sahasra Kundi or 1000 pyre Gayatri Yajna held in Mathura city (1958), meeting his Revered Gurudeva Swami Sarveshwaranandji, proclamations regarding Era Transformation, our Revered Gurudeva Yuga Drishta Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharyaji’s 3 journeys to the lofty Himalaya Mountains, mysterious episodes with reference to his Sookshmikaran Sadhana (rendering the psyche divine subtle) etc have been detailed in many places using varied terminology. We request that these incidences be read and deeply understood by respected readers with reference to the context. Biography of only those people can be written in chronological form whose lives are not conjoined to so many multifaceted specialties. Over here when a person has lived 5 lives one at a time, in 80 years carried out tasks that generally take 800 years to execute, subtly made his holy consort HH Vandaniya Mataji Bhagwati Devi Sharma execute those tasks successfully that are otherwise impossible to carry out, both despite being 2 bodies yet akin to one soul after giving birth to ‘psyche children’ (Manasputras) that can be called a huge organization of creative sculptors induce them to carry out extraordinary tasks wherein it is going on today also despite both great divine personages have shed their mortal coils, their group of disciples is just increasing day after day into a gigantic world organization etc at such times it is just not possible to sketch their biography and relate incidences of their divine lives in chronological order. Hence if respected readers read this life sketch as a nectarine story by breaking sunder the bondage of time limitation at various places they in reality shall only benefit a lot. This shall be that very benefit attained on sincerely and devotedly listening to Bhagwatkatha or immortal nectar of divine discourses.
At the hour of bidding adieu in the years 1970-71 our Revered Gurudeva Yuga Drishta Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharyaji (when he left Gayatri Tapobhumi in Mathura to head towards the lofty Himalaya Mountains) he had manifested his inner anguish in his editorial (in Akhand Jyoti Magazine) under the title ‘Apno se apni baat’. For the very first time in his life he started a series of articles under the title ‘Hamari jeevan sadhana ke antarang paksha-pehlu’ that predominated with his autobiography in the Akhand Jyoti Magazine (January 1971 AD). With this title he wrote ‘Apno se apni baat’ and in the Akhand Jyoti Magazine (February 1971 AD) he wrote its epilogue under the title ‘Hamare drishya jivan ki adrishya anoobhutiyan’. We are compiling both these articles and after due editing we are placing it in front of respected readers in the form of this book. Hence anyone reading it can deeply realize the inner anguish and agony of this great saint, God Realized Guru and Siddha Purusha. During his Sookshmikaran Sadhana (rendering the psyche divine subtle) he wrote about his entire life in a philosophic manner in the Akhand Jyoti Magazine (first in June 1984 AD and then April 1985 AD) as a special volume. All this was then compiled and edited and placed before respected readers in the form of a book titled ‘Hamari vasiyat aur virasat’. But we found an article written by him much before the above titled ‘Chamatkaro bhara jivankram evam uska marma’ it was written in the time span of February and March 1985 AD. Respected devotees and readers were insisting that Revered Gurudeva Yuga Drishta Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharyaji’s childhood and life after that spanning till today be penned. Hence he wrote it in the Akhand Jyoti Magazine (April 1985 AD).
Before we understand the life of Revered Gurudeva Yuga Drishta Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharyaji in totality it is best that we first read the above mentioned 4 articles so that it’s all round form can be truly understood by us all. Before commencing his life sketch in a proper sequence we are purposely first quoting his articles regarding his life in that very form so that we can place before everyone the directions given by that divine existence (Almighty God) hidden in the deep core of his inner cosmic personality. Via this we can also deeply understand his inner sacred sensitive sentiments or Bhavasamvedana and his deep rooted divine thinking which is the very foundation of our mission called All World Gayatri Family.
FOUR VERY IMPORTANT SELF SACRIFICING INCIDENCES RELATED TO REVERED GURUDEVA’S LIFE
(TAKEN FROM THE WRITINGS OF REVERED GURUDEVA SHRIRAM SHARMA ACHARYAJI)
‘HAMARI JIVAN SADHANA KE ANTARANG PAKSHA-PEHLU’ (WRITTEN IN JANUARY 1971 AD):
THE INNER ASPECTS OF OUR LIFE’S TRUE ACCOMPLISHMENTS
So many members of our All World Gayatri Family yearn to know more about my spiritual practices and attainments accrued from them. This is quite natural. In the eyes of people all those aspects of my gross visible life are stupendous. In it one gets visions of Ridhi-Sidhis or Divine Powers, miracles and extraordinary feats enacted. It is natural hence that behind this curiosity of theirs lies hidden a yearning to know the mystery behind all this. Hence if people wish to know my life sketch and biography these days spent by me in lone solitude far away in mountains tough terrain are much more important for knowing their details. This cannot be without reason.
On its own I have never wished to veil anything and never have my habits strayed in the direction of fraud, wiliness, hypocrisy etc. But as far as these days are concerned I am helpless in not giving much details because if as long as I am yet alive in my physical mortal body I reveal the truth the attention of the devotees shall veer away in another direction and thus my mission of awakening a sense of righteous duty in the hearts of my followers shall remain undone and incomplete. People shall vainly get lost in the forest of mystery and my personality too shall become a matter of debate. Hence obstacles shall definitely come in the way of all that I was to do and make others do which is my Revered Gurudeva’s divine command. Without doubt my life’s trend is filled with extraordinary incidences. The veils of mystery are so great in number that if I open them when the time and place is not conducive to do so it shall inflict only harm on one and all. Hence I leave it to those remaining behind post my bidding adieu to this mortal world that they examine this reality with the test of integrity and authenticity and whatever comes true after being examined minutely from all angles make inferences from them as to how Soul Sciences or Science of Spirituality oozes with power and profound absolute truth. By touching this Paras or touchstone a very ordinary person like me attained the capacity of transforming his mediocre iron like body into priceless 24 carat gold. From this standpoint at the right hour research can be conducted on innumerable mysterious facts showcased in my life while I was in my mortal physical coil. At that time in future very close aides and followers of mine can help contribute in this task. But today while I am alive this endeavor cannot be taken up and hence shall remain veiled. Hence that very curtain shall be drawn on it as it has been done till today.
The request of people that I write my autobiography can be fulfilled only to this extent as to how I conducted my spiritual practices. In reality all my attainments have been based on a spiritual practice oriented lifestyle that has been surrendered fully at the hallowed divine feet of Almighty God. By knowing it every person interested in this subject can find that pathway which when walked on the nectarine bliss of soul advancement and divine glories attached to them can be fully attained. Respected readers shall get only this much information given so far with my pen and hence they must rest content with that much.
Till today in my life span of 60 years 16 years of my preliminary childhood days is not of much special importance. The remaining 5 years I have exhibited how to conjoin spirituality to daily mundane routine. In this application following of worship-meditation methods has been less. That much importance should not be given to 6 hours of daily Super Power Gayatri worship-meditation executed for 24 years at a stretch as should be given to sanctifying the psyche and attaining high stature sacred sentiments (Bhavasamvedana). This should be accepted that lest the thought process and mode of working had not been sanctified in a sacred manner then that Karmakanda or rites of worship would gone as vain as those people who remain hollow within and without despite chanting a few Mantras and using ritual materials on a regular basis. Ere my life’s endeavor is considered successful and lest the extraordinary nature in it is searched out its chief reason must be looked upon as both my inner and outer nature, life etc being rendered pure and sanctified. Worship and rituals must be looked upon as secondary in importance. While bravely trying to pen down one portion of my autobiography I shall place forth only one fact that my entire will and mental power and honest hard labor has been directed towards soul purification. Whatever I could do as far as worship and rituals are concerned I have fully conjoined it to efforts for sanctifying my inner sacred sentiments (Bhavasamvedana). Now a few comments that throw light on the spiritual practices leading to Self/God Realization are being penned here for information of my beloved readers:
Spiritual practices have 2 steps of a ladder:
1) Matruvat pardareshu (all women are mother in form for me)
2) Pardravyeshu loshthavat (others’ wealth is but useless stones for me)
By climbing this ladder a very long road had been traversed. The road of ‘others’ wealth is but stones for me’ was quite easy to imbibe because it was related to me at the individual level. I had to fight with myself. I had to gather my wits myself. The combination of good psychic imprints or Sanskars of past lifetimes and the help of my divinely powerful Gurudeva helped me achieve all this quite easily. No doubt that my mind was not so biased and wicked that it would dare drag me towards the path of vileness. In a few stray incidences it tried to veer me away from truth but only in its wild figment of imagination. But when the stick of self control fell on its head heavily it stopped this nonsensical imagination and very quietly started walking on the correct path of truth. Thus by fighting and lambasting my mind I saved myself from sins and a downfall. Now since major perilous situations have been warded off I can breathe easily with contentment. Saint Kabirdas had worn a shawl (representing his mind) woven with utmost caution and thus without even an iota of dirt or taint on it had returned it to Almighty God. I am eternall grateful to Almighty God that he led me on this very path of truth and while trying to find these very great illustrious footprints I caught hold of this truth based foundation very firmly. Thus I reached that destination where never again can one fall down in life.
The ritual based process of spirituality is never much difficult to follow. If one’s power of resolve (Sankalpa) is very strong and our faith and steadfastness for truth is unswerving our mind does not get agitated. Thus our mind peacefully goes about its spiritual practices and our rites/ritual practices without going haywire go on smoothly. An ordinary shopkeeper with great interest for his business sits in his shop daily for virtually his entire life. His mind never despairs and no dislike enters his mind. Shopkeepers that sell cigarettes, betel leaves etc for their entire life work daily at their shops for 14 hours at a stretch that too with zest and serenity. Hence there was no need for me to break my daily vow of doing Super Power Gayatri worship-meditation executed daily for 6 hours for 24 years ceaselessly. While doing spiritual practices only those people get bored who look upon spirituality as less important and less required than business of cigarettes, growing crops like farmers, shops of sweet meats etc. In tasks that are useless and not liked by the mind, no mental focus is achieved.
Only those people get bored in worship-meditation and experience restlessness if their inner desires run madly after material comforts since they think that it is the be all and end all of life. Those who feel that rites-rituals are but means to fulfill material selfish desires, due to lack of much effort and destiny not being conducive they get angry when their desire does not get fulfilled. In the preliminary stage itself they are not keen on making due efforts. Hence they complain that their mind is not interested and lacks focus. But my inner state was different. I believed the body to be an instrument wherein materials were but fuel like that helped run this engine called the physical body. My yearning never harbored any desire to make it big in life, earn name-fame and never did I run after hypocrisy based praise from others. Since I always told myself I am the soul why not live only for soul uplifting, soul peace, soul welfare and merging my micro soul with the divine cosmic soul of Almighty God? I separated myself and my body into 2 portions. My needs and those of the body were separated. Hence that heavy wall dissuading me from entering the sacrosanct portals of the unknown subtle world fell down and thus I entered brilliant light from dark gloom.
Those who think themselves to be the body, limit their joy to satiating their sense tillating pleasures, whose life’s goal is only to fulfill selfish desires and goals, for them the be all and end all of life is to attain a fat bank balance, richness, wealth, big status, eulogies and titles. They fail to even think about soul well being and get attracted to wearing the golden chains of greed and deluded inner attachment to wealth, family etc. For them, the excuse of not getting a proper opportunity for walking on the path of Shreya or soul well being could be true. It is the psyche’s aspirations that amass various material means if the goal of life is to only attain sense tillating pleasures. Hence their consciousness makes efforts only in this direction. Thus for them worship-meditation, rites etc are mere superficial games to play around with. Whether they are performed or not is not a concern at all for them. From a curiosity standpoint people do all this so that others may look at them in appreciation and awe. Their aim in doing these rituals etc in a wayward haphazard manner is to find out if some miracles manifest and if they do not manifest then faith disappears and these worship etc methods are given up once and for all. This had to be their lot. Due to lack of faith and trust, in the absence of deep yearning to attain life’s true goal none can progress on the spiritual path. All these facts were known to me well before hand. Hence I focused the bare minimum attention to my bodily needs and maintaining my family. This I did akin to paying rent for using this machine called the body. I always focused chiefly on sanctifying my psyche and hence never felt the need to veer away towards material enticements and allurements.
When I started experiencing that I am the soul and not this gross body made of flesh, blood etc. and that it appeared to be the supremely hallowed residence of Almighty God my psyche got introverted. My thinking process got limited as to what my soul being the prince of Almighty God should do and walk in which apt direction? The questions were easy and answers followed suit. We must live only a great high stature life and act with high sacred ideals as their foundation. Those who do not tread this path fear that is they imbibe high sacred ideals in life many dangers shall have to be endured and face a fair measure of poverty, lack, censure from others and difficulties. Friends shall become foes and family members shall oppose tooth and nail. Initially I too felt the same and got such experiences. Preliminarily I had to endure mockery and scoldings showered on me by others. In fact my own family members opposed me the most. Their thinking was that a lot of material benefits that could be accrued via me and those benefits to be got in future too shall diminish a lot. Hence whatever was a loss for them was labeled as my foolishness yet this situation did not last long. If our faith heads high with firmness then falsehood and opposition cannot last long. It is only insults and censure showered on those walking the path of vileness that lasts for very long. Honesty and integrity is a glory on its own and it not only benefits us but others too. Hence it always remains unswervingly steadfast. Those who oppose us and insult us realize their error quite fast and instead of placing more obstacles on the path of truth become our aides. The more our faith is high stature and strong opposition gets converted into conduciveness much faster. I did not face family opposition for much long and their doubts dissolved on understanding reality. In actuality a life of true spirituality never inflicts losses. A person appearing poor from a superficial external standpoint remains joyous because of inner soul peace and contentment. This contentment and joy positively influences so many others and proves very useful in converting opposing people into comrades on the path of truth. It was in this very manner that my problem got solved.
When the golden chain of greed for becoming wealthy and a big shot, yearning for others’ hypocrite praises etc got cut asunder I felt I got liberated from the noose of this material world reeking with pain and sorrow. Creatures noosed in these meshes rushes insanely into this material world reeking with pain and sorrow and wails aloud while enduring stress, restlessness and discontent. If the lowly nature of all these 3 is understood and greed for sense pleasures is converted to deep faith know that the bondage of Maya or power of illusion has been overcome. Thus the goal of attaining salvation, while yet alive (Jeevan Mukti) can be achieved. As per the quote of ‘Nazaren teri badly to nazara badal gaya’ our undesirable sentiments get warded off the moment Self Realization is attained. Thus the goal on being reached, wards off all lack and dissatisfaction in life. By teaching myself that just sustain the body with minimal needs and keep your family happy too with this very attitude the desire for wealth, sense pleasures etc dissipated to naught. The mind then stops veering in that direction and as a result so much energy becomes available that our life oozes with untold zest. This fact can be experienced by anyone by living as detailed above. But people are people and hence set about to douse fire by pouring oil in it. They want to satiate desires with wealth and sense titillating material pleasures. Who can teach them that this sort of an effort can only help blaze forth a forest fire? Anyone walking this path can only keep running after an illusory mirage in a dessert for appeasing their thirst for water. Akin to ghosts of a graveyard they can only remain agitated and stressed. They can carry out only vile deeds. Thus who can make understand whom? This is because the one explaining and the one listening both are but immersed in mockery. They have heard many spiritual discourses and associated with many saints yet they did not find a God Realized Guru who could dive deep into their psyche so as to inspire them to walk the path of spirituality in true earnestness. If on an average one opens the book of the life of religious preachers it is filled with much more dirt and taint than those listening to them. Hence one harbors aversion for religion and spirituality.
Big programs for religious discourses were no doubt arranged yet my mind did not do it to boast off my knowledge. In fact whatever knowledge I got was from within my soul only. It is only my soul that became valiant and bravely started cutting asunder the bondage all around me within. It is only then that I tasted success. If I had merely depended on others then maybe other so called wise people would have rendered me ignorant only. It seems that if anyone gets divine light of wisdom it shall manifest from deep within one’s soul only. At least as far as I was concerned this fact proved to be very true in my life. Huge mountains of obstacles are known to stand in the way of spiritual practices. These can only be shattered to naught if we have unswerving faith to our spiritual goal and valiantly taking up the path of Shreya or soul upliftment instead of Preya that gives only transient sense pleasures. Hence it is my brave hearted nature that helped me succeed. Now that I am totally on the spiritual path there is no dearth of people helping me. My Revered Gurudeva and Almighty God ceaselessly were by my side to see to it that I reached my spiritual goal with relative ease. Thus my steps on this path marched ahead slowly yet very surely. The destination till now was reached as per this method.
People keep saying that the path of true religion and spirituality is very tough to tread on yet my own experience has been bang opposite to this. It is only a life surrounded by selfish desires that becomes complex and tortuous. A person who imbibes such a lifestyle reeks with stress, tension, anguish, problems etc despite putting in so much hard work. Hence if you compare this with a life of true spirituality then the hardships faced in it are much less in measure than a life of selfish materialism. A materialist amassing so much wealth by putting in immense labor ultimately reaps only worries in life without breathing easy even for a few moments. If you harbor one selfish desire it multiplies into many more. And hence even if a lot of success accrues while pursuing selfish ends man remains dissatisfied and insatiated. For reaping even minor success so much effort had to be made resulting in tiredness only. Despite knowing this man tries to make n fold more efforts for amassing material wealth by hook or by crook. The more one’s efforts intensify the more problems crop up and become more and more complex to solve. In order to solve them the body, soul and mind get pounded to pulp. Ordinary stature bodily and mental labor is not capable of fulfilling desires of the gigantic size of that mythological ogress Sursa. Hence the only recourse is the path of illegal and unethical activities. Yet even if you carry out untold sins yet your selfish desires shall never get fulfilled. The amount of harm and loss faced while harboring an agitated mind and facing a dark gloomy future on noting it attainments of such type can be called lowly and tainted only.
On an average people bear the burden of life akin to a living corpse crying, complaining and in some wayward manner or the other. In reality they should be called ‘ascetics’. Lest instead of selfish material gains hardships are endured, self sacrifice is imbibed and restlessness to attain the goal enters the psyche while treading the path of soul progress man could have become a Yogi, Sidha saint, superman, deity and Almighty God himself. But material pursuits for selfish end, gives man nothing and instead takes away everything. Hence these are true Yogis, renunciates, philanthropists, self sacrificing people etc who made such daring efforts to shoulder the burden of untold sins. Hence whatever was earned was left behind posthumously for in laws, children, nieces, nephews etc and in this manner went away from this world empty handed. These are ‘saints’ and of ‘charitable’ disposition who endured such hardships of sinning for ‘benefitting’ others. If they call themselves deluded by Maya or downfallen it is their opinion.
When I witness first hand the reactions and results of the inner and external life of so many people in contact with me I feel I have lived a much more joyous life full of comforts. The only harm at the most I endured was less material facilities and less material wealth to boast of. I got very little honor and lived a poor life and hence seeing lack of material prosperity in my life people felt I was of low status. Hence they ignored me a lot. But not much more harm or loss than this can be faced by a spiritual person like me. This is because despite material lack I remained contented and all tasks taken up by me like public welfare and well being went on uninterrupted and smoothly. No doubt others ate tasty expensive food and I merely ate saltless barley grain bread, gram etc. Those who ate exotic sumptuous meals later faced diseases of various types and since my diet was very light it got digested well and thus no major illness was faced by me. Hence say! Did I face any harm or loss in the final analysis? Since I had given up the desire to eat food known to titillate taste buds only although in a temporary manner I remained satiated even with food that was tasteless. In fact there were times when I went hungry too when even this minimal food was unavailable. As far as the question of taste is concerned even though I ate only barley bread without salt it was much more tasty than those people immersed in eating exotic food items to titillate their taste buds. People amassing wealth by wearing gorgeous clothes, living in expensive houses and decorating their faces and bodies are actually immersed only to boss over others with their superficial ‘superority’ and thus just fanning their arrogant ego. No doubt with limted means I could not amass such material grandeur yet simplicity of living and high stature thinking gave me so much self contentment and joy that no doubt superficial vain people mocked my very simple lifestyle but those whose thinking was profound and high stature could easily perceive greatness behind this kind of simplicity. Hence not only did they eulogize it but that they bowed down their heads in reverence too. Now say! Who reaped profits and who became targets of mockery?
After testing myself very thoroughly I can only say this that from the standpoint of the body for which I used only minimum labor, risk and responsibility I remained very happy mentally. I received no lesser honor too from society. I have no issue if lunatic people do not praise me and I have no complaints towards my own self. Right from the soul to Almighty God and right from true gentlemanly and farsighted thinkers I reaceived only eulogies for my way of living and thinking. I had taken much lesser risk and more profits were accrued in comparison. A life based on untold expenditure, full of vain external glitter and pomp, hypocrisy etc can only be shouldered on wheels of sins and a huge downfall. But my life was very lightweight and by taking my mattress under my armpit I set off happily. I faced no tiredness, no worries and hence my experience is that a life based on high sacred ideals is easier to live and reap untold benefits in the ultimately analysis. In it oozes light of wisdom, self contentment, zest for life etc. No doubt wicked people after attacking others seen to live a simple life of truth can harm them a bit yet this sort of heinous attack is faced much more by those who sin a lot and lead despicable tainted lives. No doubt true great saints and honest people working for social well being are seen to get harassed yet know for sure that others who live a life of arch rivalry, hatred, envy and take revenge every now and then on innocent people face a life of much more peril and danger. Day in and day out we hear of incidences related to dacoity, frauds, scams, murders, terror etc. In such episodes it is those who lead greedy selfish material lives who get killed and harmed much more. Lest so many people voluntarily give up their lives for establishing truth and righteousness they would have been called gods and world history would have reached pinnacles of true glory.
Amongst the class of true great divine personalities like Lord Jesus Christ, Socrates, Mahatma Gandhi etc very few have died while treading the path of truth. Yet know that a 1000 fold more have died when their vile lives were veering towards a devastating downfall. The great philanthropist of India called Bhamashah became poor after donated all his riches and wealth. Yet such examples are very few in number. But hordes of people who led lives reeking with fraud, scams, addictions, adultery, attacking innocents etc faced so many court cases, illnesses etc that ultimately they lost all their ill earned tainted wealth and became roadside beggars. In the true spiritual arena loss, attacks, court cases are fewer in number but in selfish materialism these cases run in hordes. Lest this fact had been understood deeply people would not have foolishly given up a spiritual way of living and instead insanely rushed after material wealth in a greedy manner. My individual experience has been that while trying to satiate material greed profits are miniscule and loss faced is tremendous in the final run. What I had to give up was very little yet what I attained as a result was so much in measure that again and again I ponder deep within to encourage as many people as possible to lead lives of true spirituality and imbibe the tradition of glorious high stature ideals. Yet this indeed is a difficult task. For years together I have lived such a lifestyle of glorious high stature ideals, simplicity and great thinking in order to set an example to others. But alas! How many heard what I said and how many actually imbibed this great glorious thinking?
It would have been difficult for me to climb the ladder of “Matruvat pardareshu (all women are mother in form for me)” and “Pardravyeshu loshthavat (others’ wealth is but stones for me)” lest I had not harbored valor and bravery to walk on that path which ushers in true overall well being and had failed to truly realize the nature of life, its correct goal and optimal usage. Those who think themselves to be the physical body merely and aspired only to fulfill selfish greed and desires never attain the untold benefits of true spiritual living. If the boat of life merely uses the oars of superficial worship rites done daily it can never reach the other shore of safety. For 24 years continuously I carried out Gayatri Purashcharans so as to complete an important chapter of worship, meditation etc. In it total success in worship rites called Karmakand only accrued after I fully conjoined my sacred sensitive sentiments (Bhavasamvedana) to it. Lest akin to innumerable other people in order to ‘boss’ over demigods or else cunningly fool them I had executed worship rites called Karmakand based on Tantra-Mentra etc for fulfilling selfish desires only I would have accrued nothing from that which is called eternal divine wealth. I know many people immersed in spiritual practices and executing worship rites called Karmakand for decades together. When I myself analyzed these worship rites called Karmakand minutely I found out that only superficial fleeting gains can be availed. No doubt false praise is got from it and a false promise is given to such people that although not in this birth at least post death they shall certainly enter heaven. Hence my conclusion and prophecy is this that not even one of such people shall enter heaven and that no Sidhi or miracle shall be witnessed by them.
Life force or Prana Energy enters worship rites called Karmakand only when when the daily routine of a devotee marches ahead with sureity towards true human glory and greatness. Such a one’s vision of life must reform day after day positively and in his activities, such methods get included that are availed by true spiritual aspirants. People who are wicked, selfish to the core, stingy and live only to aggrandize the lives of their children by hook or by crook fail to reform their actions and thinking process for the better they shall avail no benefits pertaining to pilgrimages, religious vows, fasting, listening to religious discourses, singing hymns, bathing in holy rivers, meditating etc. I strongly believe in this fact. No doubt all this is useful yet its utility value is as important as a pen required to write a great essay etc. How can you write anything on a paper if you do not have a pen? How can soul progress be attained without worship rites called Karmakand, meditation etc? Yet along with this you must also know that without fulfilling the requirement of maintaining good bodily mental health, deep study of spiritual tenets, imbibing true greatness in thinking and brain skills merely using a pen cannot reap great writing on paper. How can lovely soulful poems be written? Inner greatness is akin to intellectual development and worship rites called Karmakand, meditation etc are like a good pen to write with. Only when both combine can true benefits and success accrue. If one is removed the task remains incomplete. I paid due attention to the fact that the cart of spiritual practices cannot function on one wheel only. Hence arrangements must be made for both wheels that function smoothly. There is no hidden in secret as to how I carried out my worship, meditation etc. As per injunctions of Super Science of Gayatri I did Gayatri Mantra chanting in an ordinary manner. Yes! As long as I was doing my spiritual practices I definitely harbored sacred thoughts that the divine aura of the supreme divine authority i.e. Goddess Mother Gayatri is oozing in every pore of my being and akin to becoming red hot iron that falls into terrific fire my inner and outer existence became of that very high in stature as was that of my chosen deity (Ishtadevata). Since the divine light of Goddess Mother Gayatri entered every atom of my body and soul every iota of my body dripped forth with radiant divinity and the fire of this divine light burnt to ashes my desire for sense pleasures and other taints like lethargy, indolence etc got destroyed to naught. This divine fire also burnt to naught all my bodily and mental illnesses.
Although the body is mine yet deep within it terrific divine aura sways about and in my speech now resides only Goddess Saraswati. The demons of desire for eating exotic food in order to please the taste buds, leanings towards falsehood and behaving and acting fraudulently left that divine temple and ran away. Now I visualize only great qualities everywhere and beauty of Almighty God in all animate-inanimate beings of the world. Now my eyes are totally devoid of just finding falts of others in an egoistic fashion and no sexual lust dwells in my mind. My ears hear only that which is auspicious and full of good merits. The rest is mere noise which after banging into my eardrums returns empty handed.
I saw the supremely bright divine aura of Goddess Mother Gayatri enter my body, psyche, mind, intellect, ego called Antahkaran Chatushtaya and thus they got divinely illumined. I further experienced that Brahmavarchas or supremely bright divine aura is perforce taking me in that direction where beastly instincts and selfish desires turn into naught. It is that realm where divinity amplifies manifold. The brain decides that the precious human body must not get wasted in vain pursuits of fleeting pleasures and lowly allurements. In fact each moment of human life must imbibe sacred high stature ideals so that they get reinstated in our inner being forever. A zest must be harbored to reinstate steadfast faith in our psyche and march ahead towards Satyam-Shivam-Sundaram or Divine Truth-Wellbeing-Beauty. By inducing the entry of Savita deity (solar) in the inner being the ego can be fully sanctified. The aura of Savita deity (solar) leads us far away from the world of mortality and takes us instead to Almighty God who is omniscient-omnipotent-omnipresent. He is also Sat-Chit-Anand or Existence-Consciousness-Bliss.
At the time of my executing the Gayatri Purashcharans I did not merely chant Mantras or do Japa but that my mind also imbibed untold measure of sacred sensitive sentiments or Bhavasamvedana. In the form of an inner divine aura I experienced self knowledge in the sacred sensitive sentiments or Bhavasamvedana arena of the causal body, soul vision, soul experience and my individual soul merging into the cosmic divine soul called Almighty God by us. It seemed as though my soul akin to a moth yearning to surrender itself to a flame lamp merged into the divine light of Savita deity (solar). My individual ego existence ended and now I was that supreme divine cosmic light. ‘I’ ended and Sat or divine cosmic existence took over. In the experience of Advaita/non duality where the individual soul merges into the cosmic divine soul called Almighty God such a divinely ecstatic bliss was experienced each moment called Brahmanand that all the fleeting sense pleasures of the world put together pales miserably in its presence. Along with chanting Mantras or doing Japa reinstating divine light in the gross, subtle and causal body was commenced with due efforts. Later this became very natural to imbibe i.e. effortlessly and ultimately it became an inner tangible divine experience. To the extent I sat down for worship etc within my soul existence the ocean of the divine light of supremely radiant Savita deity (solar) bloomed forth. Apart from this divine light nothing else exists both within and without me. In every onrush of Prana Energy apart from the flame of divine light nothing else remains. This experience at least has rendered the divine vision during the daily time span of spiritual practice as it is. On an average, the entire time of Sadhana or spiritual practice passed by, in this divine experience.
The 6 hours of my daily worship-Puja etc routine would lend lots of sacred inspiration to the rest of my 18 hours. During hours of my work schedule it seemed as though it is the Tejas or divine aura of the deity is my spiritual guide. Every act of mine was based as per its directions and is going on even now. Never have I felt that any of my tasks have been done in tandem with my selfish desires, greed etc. Just as a mother catches hold of its small child while walking similarly that divine power or God catching hold of my intellect forced me to think in a high stature great manner and make my body act in a high stature fashion accordingly. Apart from daily worship-Puja etc routine all those hours remaining in my waking state in them right from executing ablution chores to eking out an income and making arrangements for self study, deep reflection over great scriptures and family upkeep ran with the experience within as though not me but Almighty God was subtly and behind the scenes doing all this. At night I slept deeply for 6 hours as though I was in Nirvikalpa Samadhi or thought free trance. It was a feeling like me sleeping in the affectionate lap of my divine mother and that I hence was supremely at peace. The feeling of merging into the divine soul existence gave me untold self contentment. When I would wake up from sleep it seemed that a new life, zest, light etc was standing before me much beforehand in order to guide me.
During my 24 years of doing 24 Gayatri Purashcharans I did not have any social of family duties to fulfill hence this spiritual penance of mine conjoined to Japa and meditation went on with more zeal and alertness. My steadfast faith towards the sacred tenets of “Matruvat pardareshu (all women are mother in form for me)” and “Pardravyeshu loshthavat (others’ wealth is but stones for me)” my body obstructed me to execute sinful acts, the fact that I ate healthy sacred food it stopped my mind from any kind of downfall. My daily meals of jowar Roti (Indian bread) and plain buttermilk made from cow’s milk not only pleased my taste buds but it was digested by my tummy very easily. There is a saying: What you eat your mind imbibes qualities accordingly. This was experienced by me in my entire life at every step. Lest I had not been strict in controlling my bodily and mental activities to the point of harshness I would have progressed on the spiritual path in only a miniscule measure.
