615. Immortality Through Dhyana Yoga

Uprooting the gunas three
He who controls breath in Muladhara
And courses it alternate
Through nadi left and right,
In time measure prescribed
Will be immortal made
By Him that is King of Beings Heavenly.

611. The Way to Ascension to Space Lies through Meditation

The mystic bed-chamber is day-light eternal
No darkness invades;
There is a way
This body to fire-chamber consigned not be,
The light of this knowledge
Is by meditation prolonged;
In the lunar region
Knows not end of Light ever.

575. Purify Body by Breath Control

The breath within rises
And wanders as it lasts ;
Control that and purify within;
Then shall your limbs glow red,
Your hair turn dark
And God within shall leave you never.

571. Knowledge of Science of Breath Leads to Him

Inhalation, Exhalation, and Retention both ways,
The Science of Breath thus consisting
They know not;
They who know the Science of Breath
Are destined to spurn the God of Death.

570. Breath Control Gives Supreme Strength

Wherever you be, there control breath
The body then will perish not.
As you inhale, control and exhale in measure prescribed
Well may you become a triumphant lord
With the conch of victory,
Your achievement heralding.

569. Breath Control Makes Body Light as Carpenter Bee

If you control the breath within,
However old your body,
Young and crystal-hard it turns
And with the goodly Guru's benign Grace,
Well may you become lighter than air.

567. Breathe Control Yields Life-Nectar

Let Prana merge in Mind
And together the two be stilled
Then no more shall birth and death be;
Therefore, learn to direct breath
In streams alternating left and right;
Then shall you taste the nectar of life.

THE SKY HUNTER

Keep
Ringing the bell,
Playing the tamboura, calling for Him

For you
Have touched something holy inside
With your spirit-body
And now your eyes look broken
Without His sacred presence near.

The heart is like that: blessed and ruined
Once it has known
Divine beauty,

Then,
It becomes a restless sky hunter.

The lover keeps circling in their being
Their sweetest moments
With God

Needing to kiss
His face
Again.

Dalai Lama: Broadly speaking, although there are some differences, I think Buddhist philosophy and Quantum Mechanics can shake hands on their view of the world. We can see in these great examples the fruits of human thinking. Regardless of the admiration we feel for these great thinkers, we should not lose sight of the fact that they were human beings just as we are.

R.C. Henry, Professor of Physics of Physics and Astronomy at John Hopkins University, explains things further:

A fundamental conclusion of the new physics also acknowledges that the observer creates the reality. As observers, we are personally involved with the creation of our own reality. Physicists are being forced to admit that the universe is a “mental” construction. Pioneering physicist Sir James Jeans wrote: “The stream of knowledge is heading toward a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine. Mind no longer appears to be an accidental intruder into the realm of matter, we ought rather hail it as the creator and governor of the realm of matter. Get over it, and accept the inarguable conclusion. The universe is immaterial-mental and spiritual.

From " Living with the Himalayan Masters " :

I had never before seen a man who could sit still without blinking his eyelids for eight to ten hours, but this adept was very unusual. He levitated two and a half feet during his meditations. We measured this with a string, which was later measured by a foot rule. I would like to make it clear, though, as I have already told you, that I don’t consider levitation to be a spiritual practice. It is an advanced practice of pranayama with application of bandeaus (locks). One who knows about the relationship between mass and weight understands that it is possible to levitate, but only after long practice. . .

He (also) had the power to transform matter into different forms, like changing a rock into a sugar cube. One after another the next morning he did many such things. He told me to touch the sand – and the grains of sand turned into almonds and cashews. I had heard of this science before and knew its basic principles, but I had hardly believed such stories. I did not explore this field, but I am fully acquainted with the governing laws of science.

Prostrations to the source of bliss, earthly and heavenly.
Prostrations to the auspicious one, more auspicious than anything else. Prostrations to the one present in holy rivers and in idols installed on their banks.

' SOMA ! THE CREATOR GOD, HUMAN SOUL
AND HERBAL JUICE '

Thou art the Creator, O Soma Lord
Of this manifest, non-manifest world.
Thou art Protector, our Kind, O God,
Bestower to us, our joyous world.

Destroyer of all, that is bad and evil,
Giver of all, that is good and civil.
Motivate our souls to soar so high,
Endowed with virtues, touching the sky.

Make our bodies, so fit and fine
O medicinal juice of herbs divine.
Killing all germs, generating decay,
To make our lives swing, hilarious sway.

Wondrous is thy magic, O Soma.

None shall ever be, incarnate happiness.

Each planet encircling Luminous.
Moves on, on a destined path,
Controlled by Thee. O Pointer of path.

Thy universal law, appropriate to all.
Controls and moves, destines of all.
Thou art great, our noble benefactor,
Our salutations to thee, our beloved protector.

' BY THE DAILY STUDY OF THE VEDAS,
QUENCH YOUR THIRST FOR DIVINE KNOWLEDGE '

May the learned, nourish their intellect,
As a deity, crystal and perfect !

Plucked from studies, daily indeed !!

As a thirsty desirous, of quenching thirst,
Digs a well by deep thrust !
So a learned, thirsty of wisdom,
Quenches his thirst, by Vedic wisdom !!

By a daily study of Vedas Divine
Intoxicated by Heavenly wine !
He sings the Vedic songs sublime,
Soaring high, with melodious rhyme !!

The great scholar and Orientalist after the study of Vedas and Upanishads, said in his lecture delivered before the University of Cambridge:

If I were asked under what sky the human mind has most fully developed some of its choicest gifts, has most deeply pondered over the greatest problems of life, and has found solutions of some of them which well deserve the attention even of those who have studied Plato and Kant - I should point to India. And if I were to ask myself from what literature we here in Europe, we who have been nurtured almost exclusively on the thoughts of Greeks and Romans, and of one Semitic race, the Jewish, may draw the corrective which is most wanted in order to make our inner life more perfect, more comprehensive, more universal, in fact more truly human a life, not for this life only, but a transfigured and eternal life - again I should point to India.

During the past thirty years, people from all the civilized countries of the earth have consulted me. I have treated many hundreds of patients. Among all, my patients in the second half of life - that is to say, over thirty-five - there has not been one whose problem in the last resort was not that of finding a religious outlook on life. It is safe to say that every one of them fell ill because he had lost that which the living religions of every age have given to their followers, and none of them has been really healed who did not regain his religious outlook.

Once when the satsang was over, an old man was taking leave.
"It is getting late," he said, "I must be going home."
"Late indeed," agreed Anandamayi, "there you are right; but go to your real home, not to the dharmasala pilgrim hostel."
"I am not staying in any dharmasala, I have my own house here," he replied.
She shook her head and smiled: "Do you call that home? You won't be able to stay there for ever. Your days are
numbered and when your time is up you will have to leave.
I call it dharmasala.
There are rules and regulations; you may remain for a while but then you have to quit.
This body tells you to find your real home from which nobody can drive you out, which is not of this world. Dig deep and unearth your real wealth, find your real home in God, who is your own Self."
