At the termination of my vacation I was sent to the Poly-Technic School in Gratz, Styria (Austria), which my father had chosen as one of the oldest and best reputed institutions. That was the moment I had eagerly awaited and I began my studies under good auspices and firmly resolved to succeed. My previous training was above average, due to my father’s teaching and opportunities afforded. I had acquired the knowledge of a number of languages and waded through the books of several libraries, picking up information more or

less useful. Then again, for the first time, I could choose my subjects as I liked, and free-hand drawing was to bother me no more.
I had made up my mind to give my parents a surprise, and during the whole first year I regularly started my work at three o’clock in the morning and continued until eleven at night, no Sundays or holidays excepted. As most of my fellow-students took things easily, naturally I eclipsed all records. In the course of the year I passed through nine exams and the professors thought I deserved more than the highest qualifications. Armed with their flattering certificated, I went home for a short rest, expecting triumph, and was mortified when my father made light of these hard-won honours.
That almost killed my ambition; but later, after he had died, I was pained to find a package of letters which the professors had written to him to the effect that unless he took me away from the Institution I would be killed through overwork. Thereafter I devoted myself chiefly to physics, mechanics and mathematical studies, spending the hours of leisure in the libraries.

From childhood I was compelled to concentrate attention upon myself. This caused me much suffering, but to my present view, it was a blessing in disguise for it has taught me to appreciate the inestimable value of introspection in the preservation of life, as well as a means of achievement.

“There were many days when [I] did not know where my next meal was coming from. But I was never afraid to work, I went where some men were digging a ditch ... [and] said I wanted to work. The boss looked at my good clothes and white hands and laughed to the others ... but he said, “All right. Spit on your hands. Get in the ditch.” And I worked harder than anybody. At the end of the day I had $2”

If you are in a state of exploration and seeking, your intelligence would work better. The sages of the past who consciously crafted this culture saw that human ingenuity and human intelligence will always be perky and sharp only if you are a seeker. If you become a believer, it will get blunted.

The Divya Netra meditation is done to awaken the higher intelligence in you. It works on the ajna chakra - the energy center located between your eyebrows - called the 'third eye', and connects you to the cosmic intelligence. The ajna chakra is known as the chakra raj - the master of all the chakras .
This is such a significant chakra that there is no religion that has not worked on activating it. When the ajna opens, the whole being enters into a different realm. A whole layer of faculties opens up. That is why all the oriental gods are represented with a third eye in their forehead. The third eye is a symbol for the awakened ajna.
There is an old saying, that if you die in Varanasi, a sacred city in India, you will automatically get liberated. Varanasi is not just the city as we know it. It is also the region where the vaarana, that is the eyebrows, meet the naasi, that is the nose, which is the exact location of the ajna chakra . It symbolically represents the death of ego in the liberated or enlightened state!
This meditation technique is taken from Zoroastrianism. This technique has two parts: One to cleanse the ajna chakra and the other to energize it. The ajna chakra, or the third eye, is known as the destroyer of illusion and lust. It helps open the super consciousness in you.
There is a lit prayer lamp in front of you. It has been lit using sesame oil or clarified butter from cow's milk. You may use a candle also, but ensure that it is made of vegetable fat. This is a guided meditation technique. Just follow my instructions closely.
Sit cross-legged on the floor with your eyes closed. Those who cannot sit on the floor may sit on a chair.
Focus on your ajna chakra as if to penetrate it. ( 5 minutes )
Open your eyes and look at the flame of the lamp through your third eye between your eyebrows. Your eyes may blink or burn or tears may flow; just allow it to happen. ( 5 minutes )
Close your eyes and again focus on your ajna chakra. Penetrate it deeply. ( 5 minutes )
Open your eyes and look at the flame of the lamp through your third eye between your eyebrows. ( 5 minutes )
Close your eyes; do not focus on your ajna chakra; just relax. ( 5 minutes ) Slowly, very slowly, open your eyes.”

' AVOIDING MEAT '

251. How could one ever be compassionate
If one fattens on animal meat?

Gains of wealth are not for spendthrifts
For meat-eaters no gains of grace.

Meat-eaters find no joy in good
Like weapon wielders' mind.

Non-killing is indeed an act of kindness
Killing and eating it is unkindness.

Eat not meat and life remains unhurt
Hell swallows men who eat meat.

If men refrain from killing for eating meat
There will be none to sell meat.

If one knows meat is but a sore
One won't eat it any more.

The undeluded wise will ever avoid meat
Which is but the flesh of a lifeless beast.

Non-killing and not eating meat are ever
Better than limitless sacrificial fire.

260. All living beings on earth will lovingly salute
Him who kills not and eats not meat.

Third eye is the last chakra and the ultimate chakra in your body. It is called ajna chakra in sanskrit. That is the seat of the will power. Chakra Raja. King of all chakras. If the one energy centre can be awakened all the energy centres can be awakened. Varanasi is the Ajna Chakra Sthala. The real vision about life happens in you when when your third eye is activated. You see the reality of life as it it.
