The whole world is BrahmaN because this
world manifested from BrahmaN, will dissolve in BrahmaN and
Dwell in BrahmaN. Thus, after knowing this truth, one should
peacefully worship BrahmaN. Because a man evolves in to
what he desires in his life and also life after. Means a man
obtains another birth on the basis of his desires. He never
obtains complete salvation from the cycle of life and
As Param Pujya Shri Bhagavat Paad
Shankaracharyaji rightly said, in Charpat Panjarika Stotram
that is popularly known as Bhaja Govindam :
Punarapi Jananam, Punarapi Maranam
Punarapi Janani, Jathare Shayanam
Again and again taking birth, again and
again facing death,
Again and again sleeping in the womb of
A very painful process indeed. The only
solution is to obtain
Moksha, complete freedom from this
How to obtain Moksha?
The only way to obtain Moksh is
realization of Advaita. Non Duality of Atman (that resides
in to our Panch Koshatmak material existence) and BrahmaN,
the all pervading absolute.
Actual spiritual journey begins with
the question,” Who am I?”.
When disciple asks this question to
Guru, a Guru who has realized Advaita. The Guru tells “Tattvamasi”,
You are That (BrahmaN). This is called Paroksh Anubhuti,
indirect experience. This is the actual beginning. From
Parokshanubhuti to Aparokshanubhuti, that is self experience
is the journey of spiritualism.
Our total existence is made of five
Koshas, layers you can say. Explaining in detail will take
lot of time so I explain this in nut shell.
Our body, the outer Sheath, is made of
Anna(Food). This is the first layer called Annamaya Kosha.
Second is Pranamaya Kosha, the layer of Prana, Air. Third is
Manomaya Kosha.The layer of Mind. Fourth is Jnana Maya Kosha.
The layer of knowledge. The fifth layer is Anandamaya Kosha.
The layer of Ananda, divine joy, Bliss. And in this dwells
Your journey begins from first layer. You
have to overcome the attachment to each of these layers. The
best method to do this is mediation. Meditation accompanied
by a disciplined life style. Detachment or working without
expectations in our day to day life will help a lot. The
fundamental cause for all kind of distresses is our
expectations. With expectations we bind our ego. This
worsens the condition. With help of a Guru one can learn to
live life without any expectation or at least with minimum
expectation. Take my word, you leave expectations and you
will not only get rid of unnecessary tensions but also gain
more than you can expect from life.
Meditation is not mere concentration.
Mediation is not a process just to observe and analyze our
inner self. Meditation is the process of gradually getting
detached from each of these layers.
For the students of higher level of
Sadhana meditation is taught in quite a complex manner. I
have seen many people who tried and failed to meditate
because of their life styles as well as social & economical
There has always been a need for a
simple but very effective method of mediation. A method that
can improve your mental level of peace as well as take you
to higher levels of Sadhana. During my meditations I heard
some divine music. And the single syllable Maha Mantra
called Pranava, Udgith, Sphota. We also call it BrahM Naad.
The sound of BrahmaN. AUM. From my experience I have
derived a method of meditation which is much easier but very
effective. This method is NAAD DHYANAM.
In this there is an effective blending
of BrahM Naad with music which depict the celestial
happenings at the time of the creation. It begins with the
silent presence of BrahmaN and then the blast of AUM , the
first manifestation of BrahmaN in the form of sound, Shabda
BrahM “AUM”. Then the dance of creation by Prakruti with
the rhythm of the divine instrument Pakhaavaj. Just let
yourself flow with the music and you will start experiencing
the world within yourself. All you need is to sit with eyes
closed in Dhyana Mudra. Regulate your breathing and here you
go. This specially designed music will give you a great
help to go deeper in to self and with regular practice you
will be able to separate all your layers and penetrate
deeper and deeper in to self.
Of course this will not directly take
you to BrahM Jnana, but surely can take you to a condition
of Bliss... an experience that is sought by all.
Aum Namah Shivaaya.
