Specialties about Guru Sakash

Date: Mon, 03 Nov 2008 23:18:26 -0000 To: From: Subject: Specialties about Guru Sakash Baba "A'ka'shabhara' a'jake ta'ra'..." (P.S. 2523) Purport: Baba, the sky of this amavasya night is filled with the stars. The sweet, nectar-like breeze is blowing mildly. The mind is floating in divine ecstasy from the known to the unknown world-- towards its final destination. Baba, ensconced in Your ideation, my mind is getting lost in Your divine bliss. Baba, the lily flower is constantly looking towards the sky; the aroma of flowers is emanating all around. They have forgotten themselves and lost their awareness about their own unit existence. They restlessly move in the attraction of one call. Baba in Your longing I am sitting alone, counting the stars. I understand that by Your grace I have lost myself in this beautiful atmosphere and the attraction of Your love. Baba, You are ever-gracious and You are always remaining by my side and guiding me. Baba, on this amavasya night my heart is yearning and longing for You. Please grace me by coming closer and still more close...
Namaskar, Every Ananda Margii has realised that Baba has blessed us with the most complete sadhana practice-- one that touches every sphere of existence. All the lessons have their unique role and, when practiced sincerely, bring a huge spiritual flow into the life of the sadhaka.
Plus in June 1990, we are all aware that Baba has bestowed upon us a special and distinct sadhana practice where we are blessed to receive His shelter. This is known as: Gurusakash. Baba says, "Gurusaka'sha means 'near the Guru, under the Guru's umbrella, under the Guru's wings, in the Guru's shelter'." (Yoga Psy. p.146)
Of course all are aware that this especially devotional Guru Sakash practice is to be done immediately upon waking up in the morning. But what some sadhakas may not realise is that if one awakens during the middle of the night then before going back to sleep one should pointedly sit up and do Guru Sakash-- visualizing Him in Guru Cakra. Specifically one senior family acarya has given this advice: 'In case, by any reason, you wake up in the middle of your sleep, then also Guru Sakash has to be practised for a few minutes before again going to sleep.'
Just as many sadhakas have experienced that when Guru Sakash is done properly in the morning then the whole day becomes charged with His bliss. Similarly when Guru Sakash is done with a pointed mind at night, then one's entire sleep gets drenched in His ideation. That special feeling will carry over through the whole night.
So this approach of doing Guru Sakash whenever one awakens from sleep is a practice for all sadhakas. Everyone is encouraged to try and see how this benefits their existence-- what sweetness this brings into the life.
When you wake, then immediately sit on your bed in an upright position. Then place your finger on top of your head. And then you will have some touching sensation there on the crown / top of your head. And then try to visualize BABA there. Although Guru cakra is a little below. But when the mind will start going from the lower cakras to the upper cakras, then at least the mind will reach a little closer to Guru Cakra or at the Guru Cakra itself. Otherwise it is not easy. And if for few seconds your mind reaches to the Guru Cakra and there you will visualize Baba, then you will feel tremendous bliss. And if the same Baba's image you are seeing somewhere else in another lower cakra, i.e. not in Guru Cakra, then you will not realize such bliss. So by that way you can feel that if you felt extreme bliss on certain point then you should consider that was Guru Cakra.
Baba says, '"Pra'tah shirasi shuukle'abje dvinetram' dvibhujam' gurum'..." "Early in the morning one should meditate on the Guru in Vara'bhaya Mudra with two hands and two eyes seated on a white lotus in Guru cakra, and address Him with your most loving and affectionate epithet..." "In what state does the Guru, endowed with two eyes and two hands exist? In the Vara'bhaya Mudra (in the posture of holding out the boon of fearlessness) He is your well-wisher, and as a matter of fact, the doer of your good." "The epithet with which you address the Guru or silently speak during your dhya'na or Gurudhya'na should also be used by you at the time of this Gurudhya'na. Always address the Guru at a stretch. This is Gurusaka'sha." (10 June 1990)
Baba says, "When you will come in close contact with the Supreme Entity you will find that you have no other wealth superior to devotion. All other worldly possessions will prove of no avail. Only devotion enables you to come into close contact with Him. This is the goal of human life. This is true process." "You have been wandering through the labyrinth of a myriad of lives. You have been ever advancing toward this stage. Knowingly or unknowing you are being drawn unto Him. This is the summum bonum of life. As long as you have not realised Him there is no siddhi in your life." (SS, part 10) Namaskar Virendra
********************************************* Religious Dogma and Females
Baba says, "In the past it was the practice in India that if a woman heard the recitation of the Vedas even by accident, molten lead was poured into her ears. This was done because if women were not suppressed they could not be easily exploited and ordered about to do menial work, like maid servants." (PNS-16) Note: Religions have always suppressed and exploited various sections of society in order to impose their dogmatic ideas. Weaker, minority groups always suffered terribly at the hands of religion. And always it was always the all-powerful clergy who soaked up the benefits. That is, all the rules and regulations were bent in favour of the dominant class, i.e. the male clergy etc. So since the birth of religion on this globe, various anti-social and harmful activities have been done in the name any particular religion. In that circumstance, in order to protect the downtrodden masses, the state or government has had to intercede and declare those religious decrees to be unlawful. For instance, in the US, the state has stepped forward and opposed the false rule that black and whites should not marry. Yet for years and years the dominant white churches opposed these inter-racial marriages. But, in the due course of things, the US government has declared such inter-racial unions, i.e white-black marriages to be legal. Likewise in India the government has come forward to make ordinances against the Hindu tradition that the wife must burn herself to death by throwing herself on the husband's funeral pyre. Now this dogmatic religious tradition is basically outlawed and not done anymore. Plus in the US, the government has declared that polygamy is illegal-- a man can no longer keep multiple wives. So the Mormon religion and others like it in the US can no longer impose rule that a man can have as many wives as he likes. In all these circumstances when religion has imposed hateful and harmful rules against the weaker sections of society, at some point the government was forced to take a stand against those religious dogmas by declaring them illegal. This we have witnessed in nearly every country around the globe. So today when the various Muslim communities impose the idea that women must wear a veil in public, then soon we are going to see this reversed by various governments. Especially because, at present, radical Muslims use the veil as a way to hide the face of their terrorist attackers. In that case, it is the duty of the government to intercede and declare such veils as illegal. Because in the present moment, in the name of wearing a veil, both male and female Muslim terrorist bombers sneak into public places to carry out their attacks. Because in many countries, male policeman are prohibited to ask females to lift their veil. Then that veil becomes a special tactic of Muslim religious radicals to sneak their attackers-- either male or female-- into public events and carry out their destructive plans. Because anyone can hide behind that veil and go where they like. All because of their dogmatic religious rule that females must cover their face with a veil in public. Given this, states and governments have no other recourse than to outlaw the dogmatic provision that females must always move in public wearing a veil. And soon we will see this law come into effect. Because at present, dogmatic Muslim leaders are imposing this illogical rule on females and side by side using this as a means to carry out their heinous activities.
