Namaste. Love you all.
This process that we do on Sundays is
meant for awakening or God realization
or both. If awakening happens first,
then God realization is quite easy. If
God realization happens first then
awakening is almost instantaneous.
Now, we have to understand this process
very thoroughly. There are three things
involved: intent, effort and grace.
The intent must be right. If your intent
is to find a solution for your physical
problems then it is not right.
If your intent is to find a solution for
your psychological problems then it is
If your intent is to dissolve
existential suffering or what we call
spiritual discontent then your intent is
To develop the right intent you must
contemplate on your normal day-to-day
Now, we spoke about three things:
intent, effort and grace. We've spoken a
little about intent. More of it I would
speak in the subsequent weeks.
Now, under effort we have to speak about
three things: breath, mind and
kundalini. Breath affects both mind and
kundalini, and mind affects both
kundalini and breath, and kundalini
affects both breath and mind.
We could start anywhere, either with
breath, mind or kundalini. But the
normal, traditional process is one
starts with the breath, moves on to the
mind and finally the kundalini.
The objective is to awaken kundalini.
Once kundalini is awakened there is a
change in consciousness because the
physical brain undergoes a
transformation. Once there is a
transformation in consciousness, you'll
So the ultimate objective is to receive
Now, in order to use the proper effort
and to receive the proper grace, we'll
be using ten different ways all combined
or you may call it ten different paths,
or you may call it ten different yogas.
Yoga, all of you must be knowing means
to unite, means a path, it means a way.
So remember the 3 threes which I have
spoken so far:
intent, effort, grace
breath, mind, kundalini
kundalini, consciousness, grace.
Now, I've said we'll be using various
yogas. For example, when you do Chakra
Dhyana, which you must have done before
we started the program that comes under
what we call Kundalini Yoga.
The teachings come under what we call
Jnana Yoga. The visualizations we
will be using would come under Raja
Yoga. Relating to your God would come
under Bhakti Yoga. When we move into the
dark room or what we call sacred space
and meditate that comes under what we
call Dhyana Yoga.
So totally you would be using about ten
different yogas about which I would be
speaking in the following weeks, and
generally what I speak I would be
repeating it four times so that we could
reach out to all four time zones.
Now, today under effort, we're going to
do Dhyana Yoga like you did last time in
the dark room or what we call sacred
Now, effort also has got three
components. They come under what are
called tamas, rajas and sattvas. Tamas
meaning inertia, initially the breath or
the mind or kundalini would not
cooperate. You have to apply your will.
When you apply your will it becomes
active effort or rajas. Thereafter it
becomes effortless. That is when there
is acceptance, awareness or witnessing
and that is called sattva.
So you must move from inertia, to active
effort, to passive effort. Witnessing,
accepting is also effort. It is
consuming energy though not as much as
active effort and we call that passive
Now, today when you meditate in the
sacred space, sit in the most
comfortable posture possible. It is
important to keep the back straight. The
upward teeth must not touch the lower
teeth. You could try it now. While in
the sacred space when you are going to
meditate, the upper teeth should not
touch the lower teeth.
Though the space is completely dark, the
eyes must not be fully closed and they
must be slightly opened just enough to
see the tip of your nose, though you
would not be able to see the tip of your
nose because it is dark. But, they
should be so opened so you focus on the
tip of the nose.
So sit comfortably, whatever posture but
it must be comfortable, must be still.
In the sacred space the body must be
still, no movement. The upward teeth
should not touch the lower teeth. The
eyes must be slightly open just enough
to see the tip of your nose and the palm
of the hands must be in the pranakriya
three posture, preferably on the middle
of your thighs. [index finger touching
where thumb joins hand.]
Of course, there is more to it. It'll
become more and more complex. But,
initially I'll keep it quite simple.
Slowly but steadily I will make it more
We'll also be increasing the intensity
of the presence. Slowly, I'll increase
it and you would be sensitized more and
more to soak in the presence.
That is the process: to sensitize you on
the one hand and to increase the
intensity of the presence. All effort is
to get to that point. Thereafter, it is
automatic. Everything starts happening.
What you must also understand is these
people who are meditating in the sacred
space are the ones who are directly
contributing to this transformation in
consciousness across the planet.
As you meditate together across the
planet in the sacred space, it will be
affecting the whole planet. The numbers
required are close to 70,000 and we hope
to reach there by the end of this year.
It is these people meditating in sacred
space who are going to bring about this
transition to a higher level of
consciousness or awakening and then
thereafter sustain it, and then take it
to still higher levels.
So I would stop here before it becomes
more complex. Slowly I'll be making it a
little bit more complex and I would also
repeat it four times on four different
Sundays so that we have covered all the
So I would now give you a Nayana deeksha
or an eye deeksha, then will come into
your dark space right there.
