GURUR BRAMHA GURUR VISHNU GURUR DEVO MAHESHWARA GURU SAKSHAT PARA BRAMHA TASMAYA SHRI GURUVE NAMAHA.
Today it gives me great pleasure to meet all of you here and also all the Sushumna kriya yogis around the country and the world through YouTube. Sushumna kriya yoga to be described in simple terms is the latest "inner" software designed by Pujya Guru Bhoganadha Siddar Maha Rishi and the Great Master Mahavatar Babaji.
In this world we keep doing our daily prayers, pujas and yagnas but we do not realize that within us there is a soul and inside this soul lies immense energy. Using the Sushumna Kriya Yoga technique we can live every second of our lives in pure bliss.
First we must understand one underlying aspect in life, that is, whatever happens small or big, good or bad is only due to our Karma Siddhanta (theory of Karma). Nothing happens without our past Karmas. This is the very base - all of us must realize and understand this very clearly.However, by practicing this technique we can create our own reality (slowly unbinding ourselves from Karma). That is, people who use and practice Sushumna Kriya Yoga from today will be free from all tensions and negative thoughts in their lives.
So, why is this technique so powerful. This technique is so powerful because it is a combination of four steps.
The first and most important step is the Yoga Mudra. The very base of Sushumna Kriya Yoga is the Yoga Mudra.
The second step is the Omkara. The third step is taking deep breaths and the last step is concentrating between the two eye brows.
If these steps are considered distinctly, Mudra meditation is first and by using different Mudras and keeping our eyes closed is called Mudra meditation. By chanting Omkara with our eyes closed for 15 to 20 minutes is called Omkara meditation.Likewise by closing our eyes and using any breathing technique is called breathing meditation and last concentrating between our eyebrows is called third eye meditation.
Hence, in this Sushumna Kriya Yoga technique all the four different techniques are combined as one and hence all of us receive immense energy and progress four times faster in our lives.
How was I initiated, how I had seen great visions during my meditation I have never discussed this with anyone in any of my classes. I would like to discuss my spiritual journey with everyone here and then I would go into the initiation.
In 1982 at Madanapalle, BT college, Guru Swami Chinnamayananda was conducting a 14 days meditation course. I had attended the full 14 days. I did not meditate but I was feeling very happy.and wanted to meditate. Then I purchased the Bhagavat Gita written by Guru Swami Chinnamayanandha. Till 1992 Feb I had not opened the book and also did not feel any time that I should open the book.
In 1992 Feb one evening and every evening around 5.30pm to 7.30pm I would feel a great fragrance around me. I was not able to pin point the fragreance. It wasnt any perfume, roses or jasmine smell. It was very different fragrance, I would ask everyone around me whether anybody could feel the fragrance. During these times of fragrance I would feel very drowsy and my eyes would close automatically. After one month I would eagerly wait for the evening 5.30pm time, for the fragrances and I would not have any work nor go out during this time.
This went on till July. On 12 July my mother left her worldly body.Till the day before I used to feel the fragrance but it stopped from that date. Till that date I was happy conducting pujas, yagnas, going to the Temple, fasting, reciting Lalitha and Vishnu Sarasanamam and if I did not recite this even for one day I used to feel bad. After my mother left her worldly body I went into a depression state for one month. Then one day I felt like reading the Bhagvat Gita After reading the Bhagvat Gita I felt very happy.
Three things or three slokas which touched my heart were,
1. (Sloka from the Baghavad Gita)
You are responsible for your Karmas.
2. (Sloka from the Baghavad Gita)
You have to face your Karma and be born again and again to clear your Karma.
3. (Sloka from the Baghavad Gita)
It is only through the path of meditation can one easily clear their Karmas.
These three points were what I was looking for but whatever I did I did not see or feel God.and I was feeling very upset. Then I got to read an article carried by Ramakrishna Prabha.
In this article Swami Vivekananda asks his guru Ramakrishna Paramahamsa whether he has seen God. Guru Ramakrishna Paramahamsa tells him that he has seen God as clearly as he is seeing him. Swami Vivekananada is very happy and asks his Guru whether he (Vivekananda) can also see God. Guru Ramakrishna Paramahamsa tells Swami Vivekanananda yes I will show you but first
we must go to the river. Then taking him to the river Guru Ramakrishna Paramahamsa asks Swami Vivekananada to take three dips in the river and along with Swami Vivekananada enters the river and after Swami Vivekananada has taken two dips and was taking his third dip Guru Ramakrishna Paramahamsa hold the head of Swami Vivekananada with his two hands and presses hard and with great difficulty Swami Vivekananada comes out of the river.and asks his Guru why he was holding him under water instead of showing him God.
Guru Ramakrishna Paramahamsa asks Swami Vivekananada how he was feeling when he was held under water. Swami Vivekananada tells his Guru that he was very determined to come out of the water at any cost. Guru Ramakrishna Paramahamsa tells Swami Vivekananada that if he was as relentless in his quest to see God and could concentrate hard he would be able to see God for himself.
This touched my heart and then I realised that I was not been able to see or feel God because I was not relentless in my quest and I was not concentrating enough. A week after reading that article I was sleeping and I could see that I was sleeping I was hearing a voice telling me to become an Yogi. After a week I opened the Bhagavat Gita again and there Lord Krishna is telling Arjuna to become a Yogi and that a Yogi is the ultimate human being. Arjuna asks Lord Krishna how one can become a Yogi. It was written that to become a Yogi one has to concentrate between the two eyebrows. Then I realized that I had to concentrate and because of my Gurus and Gods blessing I was able to concentrate for 8 hours every day.I was able to do this because I had the time. That is how I started to concentrate for 8 hours everyday.
Afterwards in 2005 I once again started to feel the same fragrance in the evening. Once or twice I would fear that like my mother somebody near me would leave this world but I was neither worried or depressed anytime. Then I realized it may be due to my meditation that everyone has to leave this world after completing all the tasks assigned to them automatically and we need not worry too much about it.
That day was Vinyaka Chathurthi. I would usually meditate between 3am to 6am everyday. I can say definitely that day was the start of a new life for me. I have felt many visions earlier but this was a wonderful vision. This vision was as clear as seeing a TV. Till that time I had not seen or heard about Pujya Guru Bhoganadha Siddar. I had read the book an Autobiography of a Yogi but in this book I had read about the Great Master Mahavatar Babaji and I did not know that Pujya Guru Bhoganadha Siddar was the Guru of the great master Mahavatar Babaji.
In this vision I could see very clearly the very place were Pujya Guru Bhoganadha Siddar had intiated the great master Mahavatar Babaji - that is Kutirgammam in Sri Lanka. I was there in my astral body along with Pujya Guru Bhoganadha Siddar and the Great Master Mahavatar Babaji. I could not see my body but I knew that I was there and next to me was this transparent body; I could understand what Puja Guru Bhoganadha Siddar was telling me - "I am giving you the simplified version of Sushumna kriya yoga for the present generation." I could feel the entire process in my body and see each step as explained by Puja Guru through the transparent body.
In this Sushumna kriya yoga the very base and the most important part is Yoga Mudra and through this Yoga Mudra we can speed up our meditation and we can progress faster. In this Yoga Mudra we lock our three fingers and when we breathe air enters through our nostrils normally but in the transparent body I could see cosmic energy entering through every small pores in our skin and with great force and when we lock our fore fingers I could see clearly cosmic energy entering our nostrils to Ida, Pingala, Sushumna Nadi and from the top
cosmic energy was coming down like a light or a fire and was entering with great force into the Sushumna Nadi and I could feel the entire process in my body and I could see the process very clearly.I could not hear any voices but step by step I could see a circle formed around us with great cosmic energy when we had locked our three fingers and I could see cosmic energy entering through our nostrils into Ida Pingala Nadi and when we locked our fore fingers great cosmic energy entering from the top directly into Sushumna Nadi and all these process I could see step by step. Thereafter I saw a Shri Chakra formed with great energy around Mani Pura Nadi.
This is definitely not our first birth. We have been born many times.In our past lives we would have without our knowledge felt anger, been indifferent,felt fear under many circumstances and all these negative emotions would get imprinted very strongly in our Manipura Nadi chakra Therefore when we sat in Yoga Mudra there was a protective cosmic energy around us, there was Sri chakra inside of us the rising of Sushumna Nadi. All this happened simultaneously and I felt this process was the most wonderful experience.
Next Omkara. When we chant Omkara from our Nabi chakra there is great vibration in our entire nervous system.Next deep breathing. When we breath deeply extra energy is sent to our brain cells and automatically we attain a thoughtless state. Meditation is nothing but attaining a thoughtless mind. Thus with Omkara and deep breathing I could attain a thoughtless state very easily. I could see this entire process crystal clear.
Parama Guru's main purpose was that through this simple technique we should create an awareness and lead the human race into spiritual path because we were not born in this world to suffer. God wanted every one to lead a happy worldly and a spiritual life. No Guru would advice you to leave your worldly duties for meditation.The real meaning is that along with our worldly duties we should take care of our soul. Just as we move fast on our outer journey we must also move faster in our inner journey.Do we not move fast when both our legs are healthy and slow down when we are crippled? Likewise our progress is not complete with our outer journey and is only complete with our inner journey, otherwise our life would remain a half circle without our spiritual journey.So everybody from their early age must use this technique for one hour everyday. We can all feel how wonderful our life would be without any depressions and tensions.
Now I will start the initiation for everybody here. First without the blessings of Pujya Guru Bhoganadha Siddar and the great master Mahavatar Babaji none of us would have gathered here. We are all blessed.All these days we were not aware of this technique, now we all have learned about it.
First all of us will meditate for 49 minutes and then we will discuss this technique.
Everyone should sit comfortably and relaxed, totally relaxed. Sit straight, very straight. Before going into the initiation our feelings should be totally neutral and we should forget who we are including our name and profession. This is the time to inter act with our soul so we should become the manifestation of our soul. Keep you hands in Yoga Mudra.
I will chant Omkara 21 times and all of you should chant the Omkara with me. If aoh is one time uhmm should be two times. We should chant Omkara with feeling and chant Omkara from our navel and by listening to the Omkara chants then only can we feel the wonderful feelings in our body.Then deep breathing.
Without disturbing the next person everyone should take deep breaths from our navel slowly inhaling and exhaling for 14 times. Why should we meditate for 49 minutes, Omkara for 21 times and deep breaths for 14 times. The base is the number 7 because there are 7 chakras in our body and 3 times Omkara and 2 times deep breaths for each chakras.
There are energy spots on earth and when we visit those places our chakras are activated and when we meditate we can receive immense energy that much easier. Like when we feel the sun rays it is not concentrated but use a lens on a paper it will burn.The seven chakras on earth is in Andhra Pradesh and it is the seven hill at Tirupati which millions visit everyday. Next time when you are in Tirupati meditate and see the wonderful experience.
Next 49 minutes nobody should open their eyes because when you open your eyes 80% energy escapes through our eyes. Thoughts will come for beginners, then without disturbing others take deep breaths. You should not go with your thoughts. You should realize that you are here to meditate and you would not allow your thoughts to disturb you and you are here to receive great energy from our Parama Guru. Only then, will you be able to receive the cosmic energy.
With an open mind we will meditate for 49 minutes by being one with our soul till I ask you to open your eyes come out of your meditative state and press your finger tips to your eyes because our finger tips carry lot of energy which our eyes can receive easily.I hope every one has understood the procedure.
Sit relaxed and straight. Keep your hands in Yoga Mudra,chant Omkara for 21 times with me, take deep breaths slowly for 14 times with feeling that we are inhaling good, positive qualities and exhaling bad, negative qualities. Then keep your concentration between your eyebrows just as Arjuna for whom the eye of the bird was the only thing he could see we should also maintain our concentration between our eyebrows.
When we get unwanted thoughts we should without disturbing others take deep breaths.Now we all will close our eyes, do not touch anybody and chant Omkara with me..
Here there may be many people who may have not been able to understand me or the procedure, so the procedure would be explained both in english and hindi. Then I will continue the initiation.
OHM- OHM- OHM. Then take deep breaths for 14 times with feeling and then concentrate between your eyebrows happily.
Now come slowly from your meditative state. Now we will clap for 1 minute for coming out of our meditative state. Everybody have meditated very well and we all have received great energy.To realize the true power of Sushumna Kriya Yoga meditation start meditating from today for 49 minutes every day and when you do this you will definitely realize its immense power.
Some people may have doubts as to which time is suitable for meditation.Normally early morning 3 am to 6 am is very suitable for our body to meditate.For people who may not be able to meditate at that time they may meditate in the evening between 5.30 pm to 7.30 pm and for people who may not be able to meditate at both these times they may choose their suitable time to meditate, but if you miss a single day you may have to add ten more days. Just like how we charge our cell-phones everyday we should also charge our life enhancing energy through Sushumna Kriya Yoga meditation. Along with our daily meditation we should also introspect ourselves for 5 minutes before sleeping. That is all the unnecessary deeds,talk and thoughts we could have avoided during the day.We are aware of only the day to day pollution which is only 20% but in reality world is polluted 80% by our thoughts.When we release a thought it goes in a
circle around the world and would ultimately come back to us. This is called the Universal law.
We have talked about how we can create our own reality. Just as the thoughts we generate our lives will be defined. So the first point every Sushumna Kriya Yogis should be aware and practice is their thought process and to have at all times only positive thoughts and the second point is every Sushumna kriya yogis should never have negative thoughts, such as, whether they can sit and meditate for 49 minutes every day, whether they will have the time, whether they can receive the cosmic energy from the masters, whether they can benefit from this meditation.No one should have this negative thoughts. When I could do it, when our great master Babaji could do it, we all can do it. Every one should start their meditation positively.
Last year's meditators want to share his and her experience with you and then we will discuss further.
We would have studied in history about Nalanda Takshasila Vidyalaya. In this Vidyalaya, both physical science and spiritual science was imparted. Even in those days when there were not many modes of transport many people from all over world wanted to come down and many great people have come down and learned these great spiritual sciences.
In 1992 when I was reading the 'Autobiography of a Yogi' I was searching whether there was any mention of Sushumna Kriya Yoga meditation. Today there is a card mentioning how this can be practiced but there were none in those days. In this book which is full of energy, I could see every page as a vision very clearly. It was such an energetic book. Then I started my quest for Sushumna Kriya Yoga in 1992 and I was initiated only in 2005. Today every one of you is so lucky to receive it in your own city.
Now when we start something we must take a very strong resolution, like I will take up this meditation and a commitment to complete it without fail. The foremost benefit when we take in the cosmic energy slowly this energy will penetrate every nook and corner of our skin and reach all parts of our body we will feel very healthy.Then all the impressions created by our past karmas which cannot be cleared by any technique, medicines, doctors or by any methods are cleared through this meditation.Since we keep adding all our karmas from our previous births all these added karmas are cleared by this meditation.Thus when our karmas are cleared we feel a sense of eternal bliss.The pleasure we feel in this world is only peripheral but the inner pleasure we feel after meditating is the real eternal pleasure which can never be described by mere words.I want every one to feel this eternal bliss and pray that next year on Mahavatar Babaji's birthday we will have Sushumna kriya yoga meditation initiation at this very venue and I hope to hear from every one here that you have also felt this eternal bliss.
