VIJNANA BHAIRAVA TANTRA


When the intellect becomes steady, formless and without
any support, meditation is verified. Imagination of the form
of the divine with a body, eyes, mouth, hands, etc. is not
meditation

Love unconditionally. Don’t ask anything in return. Much comes on its own, that’s another thing. Don’t be a beggar. In love be an emperor. Just give it and see what happens. A thousandfold it comes back. But one has to learn it. Otherwise one remains a miser. One gives a little and waits for much to come back, and your waiting, your expectation, destroys the whole beauty of it.

When the mind appears every morning don’t jump to the usual conclusion, “This is me; these thoughts are mine.” Instead, watch these thoughts come and go without identifying with them in any way. If you can resist the impulse to claim each and every thought as your own, you will come to a startling conclusion: you will discover that you are the consciousness in which the thoughts appear and disappear. You are allowed to run free. Like the snake which appears in the rope, you will discover that the mind is only an illusion which appears through ignorance or misperception.

From the atomic to the cosmic – the physical can only be cyclical. The more you are identified with your body, the more cyclical and compulsive you are.

Completion is nothing but coming to terms with reality. Come to terms with reality NOW. Let reality not bring powerlessness in you; lead you to incompletion; make you suffer. Go to Manikarnika ghat in Varanasi and sit for 3 days in that atmosphere. When you see so many bodies continuously burning so much of introspection will happen in you. Automatically your inner-space will start getting burnt. You will identify yourself as one of the bodies and Mahadeva will liberate you with the Tharaka mantra. Once in a while you should remember the truth. The reality of death is not at all depressing. If you sit with the right understanding it will bring SO much joy in you. SO much completion in you. Coming to terms with reality IS completion. I am not saying you should change it. Or that you should accept reality. All I am saying is that you need to come to terms with reality. No powerlessness. I will be powerful; you will be powerful; Let both of us be friends. I sincerely recommend to all my devotees; all my disciples; I give you this as my experiential instruction. Please go and spend at least 3 days in Manikarnika Ghat of Varanasi seeing these bodies getting burnt. Just seeing will teach you so many things about death. The way death is treated there. That very context will teach you all the lessons you need to learn in life. Coming to terms with reality is completion. It gives you the power of Kalpataru. WHATEVER you want goes on becoming reality. Every time you have incompletion be very clear you are not coming to terms with reality. Coming to terms with reality is completion. The you will simply have intelligence spontaneously as to whether you should change or whether you should change reality. You will not have the attitude of COMPETING. You will have the attitude of COMPLETING.

People don't go to heaven or hell when they die. No one goes anywhere, when they are alive, what space (inner mental setup) they are in, that same space continues that's all... While you are alive make heaven for yourself. Let Reality not make you suffer, coming to terms with reality is completion.

You often say,
“I would give, but only to the deserving.”
The trees in your orchard say not so,
nor the flocks in your pasture.
They give so that they may live,
for to withhold is to perish.

God, on being worshipped, bestows steadiness in devotion which leads to surrender. On the devotee surrendering, God shows His mercy by manifesting as the Guru. The Guru, otherwise God, guides the devotee, saying that God is in you and He is the Self. This leads to introversion of the mind and finally to realization.

BHAGAVAN'S DIALOGUE WITH AN AMERICAN LADY

The following questions were asked by an aristocratic-looking American lady. Bhagavan's answers are a succinct summary of his practical teachings.

Question: What is the truth that I have to attain? Please explain it and show it to me.

Bhagavan: What we have to attain and what is desired by everyone is endless happiness. Although we seek to attain it in various ways, it is not something to be sought or attained as a new experience.

Our real nature is the 'I' feeling which is experienced by everyone. It is within us and nowhere else.

Although we are always experiencing it, our minds are wandering, always seeking it, thinking in ignorance that it is something apart from us. This is like a person saying with his own tongue that he has no tongue.

Question: If this is so, why did so many sadhanas [spiritual
practices] come to be created?

Bhagavan: The sadhanas came to be formed only to get rid of the thought that it [the Self] is something to be newly attained.

The root of the illusion is the thought which ignores the Self and which thinks instead, 'I am this body'.
After this thought rises it expands in a moment into several thousand thoughts and conceals the Self. The reality of the Self will only shine if all these thoughts are removed. Afterwards, what remains is only Brahmananda [the
bliss of Brahman].

Question: I am now sitting peacefully without the thought 'I am this body'. Is this the state of reality?

Bhagavan: This state must remain as it is without any change.
If it changes after a while you will know that other thoughts have not gone.

Even the most exalted states and most exceptional spiritual accomplishments are unimportant if we cannot be happy in the most basic and ordinary ways, if we cannot touch one another and the life we have been given with our hearts.

To live in this Realization
is to not worry about perfection or non-perfection.
To put your trust in the Way is to live without separation,
and in this nonduality you are one with the Way.

The scriptures speak of three Holy rivers Within.
These are Existence, Consciousness, and Bliss.
Being beyond thought or effort
they cannot be objectified or subjectified.
They are so dear, so near, behind the retina and before the breath.
You need not see This, you are it.

"Outward longings drive us from the Eden within; they offer false pleasures which only impersonate soul-happiness. The lost paradise is quickly regained through divine meditation. As God is anticipatory Ever-Newness, we never tire of Him. Can we be surfeited with bliss, delightfully varied throughout eternity ?"
( Yogananda ) "I understand now, sir, why saints call the Lord unfathomable. Even everlasting life could not suffice to apraise Him."
"That is true; but He is also near and dear. After the mind has been cleared by Kriya Yoga of sensory obstacles, meditation furnishes a twofold proof of God. Ever-new joy is evidence of His existence, convincing to our very atoms. Also in meditation one finds His instant guidance, His adequate response to every difficulty."

How quickly we weary of earthly pleasures! Desire for material things is endless; man is never satisfied completely , and pursues one goal after another. The "something else" he seeks is the Lord, who alone can grant lasting joy.

Ever-new Joy is God. He is inexhaustible; as you continue your meditations during the years, He will beguile you with an infinite ingenuity. Devotees like yourself who have found the way to God never dream of exchanging Him for any other happiness; He is seductive beyond thought of competition.

The deeper the realization of a man, the more he influences the whole universe by his subtle spiritual vibrations, and the less he himself is affected by the phenomenal flux.


Swami Sri Yukteswar Giri, ( Guru of Yogananda)

See More
All parts of creation are linked together and interchange their influences. The balanced rhythm of the universe is rooted in reciprocity. Man in his human aspect , has to combat two sets of forces-first , the tumults within his being, caused by the admixture of earth, water, fire, air, and ethereal elements ; second , the outer disintegrating powers of nature. So long as man struggles with his mortality, he is affected by the myriad mutations of heaven and earth.

Man is a soul, and has a body. When he properly places his sense of identity, he leaves behind all compulsive patterns. So long as he remains confused in his ordinary state of spiritual amnesia, he will know the subtle fetters of environmental law.
