BRAHMATVA is a peculiar concept. It indicates
a second type of self actualization. Note carefully again
the sequence of events that leads one to attain Brahmatva.
In the yogic merger it was seen how manas
loses its identity but praanan does not. Anyway both praanan and manas return to their respective
station and the duties. This sequence is repeated over a period
of time. Tapas should continue and finally a state
is reached where a different sequence of event takes place.
It can be explained this way: manas
loses its identity forever; which means that there will be
no manas in the organism hereafter. Now only the two
remain. Against the earlier practice of praanan being
shunted out after the merger a new arrangement is made where
both the aatman and praanan stay together in
the III ventricle. This is called Brahmasaakhaatkaara. Here
Brahma means simply the Great.
The praanan in the perpetual company
of aatman becomes truly great.
Any individual who could achieve this is
said to have acquired brahmatva. He then can be called Brahma
Any individual who has achieved this near
impossible status, be active with the world and comes down
to society so that he can be a leader of men can be called
here to see all the animations together
Any more explanation should not be given. AUM Shaantihi.
Saadhanaa: Answering some questions
(1) Having heard that a student saadhakaa is meditating for
hours; the learned professor and HOD of an University now
retired, opinioned that it is a waste of time. Further he said
that his work is his yoga & for him work is worship. Well the
professor missed the main issue at stake. Meditation was not
done at the cost of a regular job. Our Aashrama strongly
advocates that every individual earn a living by some
professional means. Every one must stand on his own feet.
Practice is restricted to 6PM to 6AM. Doing work as though it
is worship is true to all. But meditation is not done
inconveniencing the work schedule. In our Aashrama every
saadhakaa must work his way to living. Our Pradhaana Guru is a
retired employee. He was practising yoga through out his life,
minding his work simultaneously.
(2) Why take so much of pains in doing yoga? Particularly
gataagati of air said a ruler of a small principality, now a
politician and Cambridge educated gentleman. We can only
remind him that life is not like a rolling stone. Resistance
will always be there. Why let him remember how even sexual
intercourse is painful in the initial stages. Is not child
bearing and child birth painful? Should motherhood be
dismissed because it is full of pains.
(3) Oh we cannot spare our hour for doing japah twice a day,
said a Brazilian lady of 55 years. In the western countries
life is a race against time. They always run, run & run.
Wristwatch controls their life. Should we not pose a question
as to what, why & for whom are we living? Individual life is
traded for working and for more working. In fact work is
killing people. Work one should. But should comfort & pleasure
be given a go by in pursuit of stressful life style?
Relaxation is absent and instead all are found carrying the
cross of stress and tension to our hospitals. The yogic life
style offers a different type of work culture where work and
pleasure are blended beautifully.
