Haidiyakhandi Yoga Taught by Lord Babaji to Shastriji - ॐ (Part 3)

 Haidiyakhandi Yoga Taught by Lord Babaji to Shastriji - ॐ (Part 3)
Sri Shastriji at Siddhashram Schweibenalp, May 8, 1985

And when Sri Mahaprabhuji (Lord Haidakhandi Babaji) told me that He could tell me the Secrets of the Mantra "Haidiyakhandi" immediately, I was reminded of what had happened with Mahendra Maharaji years ago, when he had told me that, when Sri Mahaprabhuji appears, He himself will tell you the 'real meaning' of Haidiyakhandi.

And while explaining the meaning of this Great Name, Prabhuji (Babaji) told me that, when the actions of Yoga start in the body, they start First in the Muladhara Chakra (root chakra), from below. But this "Haidiyakhandi Yoga" is a very special Yoga which starts from the Sahasrara Chakra (crown chakra), from the top. And one by one, from above downwards, it will pierce all the chakras.

When I further questioned Him to explain to me more precisely, Sri Mahaprabhuji told me that there are Five syllables in "Hai-di-ya-khan-di." In the Sanskrit alphabet, each letter has a particular place in the body. Hai has a place in the throat. According to the rules of grammar, ai is mixed in Hai and pronounced from the talu (the throat). Each of the Five syllables has a letter both pronounced from the throat and belonging to the topmost chakra, so that in reciting these Five syllables constantly, one travels 'only in the uppermost chakras', purifying them.

This 'Haidiyakhandi Yoga', which gives everything to a human being who follows it, is a Yoga between Throat and Crown Chakra and has no connection with any of the lower parts of the body. It rules all the chakras from the sahasrara, from the top.

By constantly chanting the mantra Haidiyakhandi 'all the chakras' of a human being are pierced, and he/she becomes the owner of all the Siddhis (the great powers), which are known as the Ashta Siddhis (the eight divine powers) and the Nau Nidhis (the ninefold divine blessings). This is one of the 'most important points' of this Yoga which Mahaprabhuji showed to us.

Many people offered prayers and did Aarati to Sri Mahaprabhuji (Babaji) as Sri Mahaprabhuji. But there were times, when people put a sari on Sri Mahaprabhuji, worshipping Him, offering aarati to Him as Mahamaya (Mother Goddess). And He proved it to us, that within Himself, Brahma and Mahamaya both resided together.

He proved to us that there is no need for us to do a separate sadhana, separate yoga for the male and female energy, for Brahma and Mahamaya. By chanting, or doing Japa of "Haidiyakhandi", we worship both together. For the universal good of humankind, Sri Mahaprabhuji has given us the 'Great Boon' of this Mantra.

 Lord Haidakhandi Babaji and Shastriji reading
Sri Shastriji at Siddhashram Schweibenalp May 8, 1985

Now I will share with you the 'most secret aspect' contained in the Mantra "Haidiyakhandi" (Given to Sri Shastriji by Lord Haidakhandi Babaji)

With the Grace of Sri Mahendra Swamiji Maharaja (Sri Shastrijis family guru and chief disciple of Babaji), the book "Shri Sadashiva Charitamrita" was written and published in 1961. Within his lifetime, the criticism and interpretation of this book was also written, but was not published then.

A short while after Sri Mahaprabhuji (Lord Haidakhandi Babaji) appeared in 1970, He said to me, "In your house there is a written book ready. Please bring it here." And when I brought this book, "Shri Sadashiva Charitamrita," to Him, Sri Mahaprabhuji heard it from my own mouth from the first chapter to the end. And after having listened to the whole book, Sri Mahaprabhuji commented, "This is perfect. This is what I wanted." Sri Mahaprabhuji wanted that 'all religions should be united' and that there should be a book in which they were given a common base, a universal book.

And I requested of Sri Mahaprabhuji, "Now that you have appeared before the world, you should give some teaching on Kriya Yoga." For Kriya Yoga had not been given fully, so I wanted that Sri Mahaprabhuji should complete His teaching on it.

Sri Mahaprabhuji told me that now the time is not ripe for the world to know the 'secrets' of Kriya Yoga. When the time comes, He would open the Treasure of this knowledge and give it to the world. As you might have read in the "Autobiography of a Yogi," there is a mention of Kriya Yoga, and also in many other books like this. But there is no book in which there is a description of how Kriya Yoga should be done, or how it should be taught. Everyone was told to go to the master, to the guru, and find out what it was.

These disciples in search of masters, kept on wandering here, there, everywhere, and then would find a master who whispered something into their ears, telling them that this is how Kriya Yoga is done. But in our Vedic literature and all other religious books, nothing is secret, everything is open for everyone to interpret as they wish.

After my 'repeated prayers' to Sri Mahaprabhuji that He should tell me what I should write, He told me that I should compose a ninth chapter (of Sri Shastriji's book). For each chapter He would tell me what I should write. And whatever Sri Mahaprabhuji told me, I wrote. It was the complete description of Kriya Yoga in His presence.
Many times He listened to what I had written.

But when He had finished, I prayed to Sri Mahaprabhuji saying, "It will be impossible for the present mankind to follow this kind of Yoga, because today, at this stage, human beings eat all kinds of food which is not pure (as are vegetables, ghee, etc.). I mean all the kinds of chemical food, and this is why it is impossible for them to follow this deep and difficult Yoga."

So when I protested to Sri Mahaprabhuji that nobody would be able to do this Yoga of present mankind, Sri Mahaprabhuji laughed and said, "Shastriji, don't worry. This Yoga will be followed by someone who will be born -- there is no end to time, and there is no end to the universe -- somewhere, a human being will be born who will understand it and do this Yoga. Maybe, one person only, and maybe five persons, or maybe a few more will understand it and will be able to perform and Live this Yoga, and this will be sufficient to make it available to mankind, for it should no longer remain secret."

At the same time, Sri Mahaprabhuji told me, "If you are satisfied, if it makes you happy, I will teach to present mankind of this yuga (era), the Yoga of "Haidiyakhandi".

And as I was writing this literature on Haidakhan Babaji (in the 50s), Sri Mahendra Maharaja one day came by car to my house and told me, "Shastriji, all this time, we have been writing on Haidakhan, on Haidakhan Baba, etc., but now I have been given the permission by Babaji to tell the world the meaning of the name Haidiyakhandi".

So when I prayed to Sri Mahendra that he should tell me the 'secret mystery' of the name Haidiyakhandi, he said that at the moment it is all right to just explain what is Haidiyakhandi. Haidiyakhandi is the one who lives on the continent of Haidakhan. Just as we have the European continent, or America and Australia are known as continents, the same way in India in ancient times, the different regions were known as continents, and so Mahendra Maharaja said that this is sufficient for the world to know, that Haidakhan is the continent of Haidakhan Baba who lives in this continent.

Sri Mahendra Maharaji also said to me (Shastriji), "I'm revealing to you only a 'very small portion' of what Haidiyakhandi means, but when Babaji appears to you and the world, He himself will reveal to you the whole mystery of this Name." (To be continued in Part 3).

Jai Haidiyakhandi Bhole Baba Ki Jai!

Ναβαράτρι, 9 νύχτες αφιερωμένες στη Θεϊκή Ενέργεια (Mahashakti) by Indira Devi

Ναβαράτρι, 9 νύχτες αφιερωμένες στη Θεϊκή Ενέργεια (Mahashakti)
28 Μαρτίου - 5 Απριλίου 2017

by Indira Devi

Η Ναβαράτρι είναι ενα από τα μεγαλύτερα θρησκευτικά φεστιβάλ της Ινδίας προς τιμήν της Θεϊκής Μητέρας, της Δημιουργικής Ενέργειας του Σύμπαντος. Η Ανοιξιάτικη Ναβαράτρι (Chaitra Navaratri) είναι πραγματικά μια γιορτή- ύμνος στην Μητέρα Ενέργεια που δίνει ζωή σε όλα και η οποία βρίσκει στην Άνοιξη την πιο ένδοξη και λαμπρή εκδήλωσή της. Η ζωή ξεπετάγεται από παντού, ξερά κλαδιά γεμίζουν χρώματα και αρώματα κι ένα πράσινο χαλί απλώνεται να καλωσορίσει την ανθοφορούσα, πολύχρωμη Άνοιξη. Τα χιόνια λιώνουν και γεμίζουν γάργαρο καθαρό νερό τα ποτάμια... η φύση ξυπνάει από τον παγωμένο χειμωνιάτικο ύπνο και στολίζει τον κοσμικό καμβά με κελαϊδίσματα, μεθυστικές μυρωδιές, ζουζουνίσματα, όλων των ειδών τα άνθη κι ένα λαμπρό φως που ζεσταίνει και γλυκαίνει όλη την πλάση. Μέσα σ’ αυτή την πανδαισία της ζωής που γλυκοξυπνά, υμνείται στην Ινδία η συμπαντική Μητέρα ή Mahashakti στα σανσκριτικά.

H Ανοιξιάτικη Ναβαράτρι, ξεκινά πάντα με τη νέα σελήνη του σεληνιακού Ινδικού μήνα Chaitra (αντιστοιχεί στο μήνα Μάρτιο/Απρίλιο του Γρηγοριανού ημερολογίου, αναλόγως σε ποιό μήνα πέφτει η νέα Σελήνη). Η νέα αυτή σελήνη, είναι η πρώτη μέρα του μήνα Chaitra, η πρώτη μέρα της Άνοιξης και η πρώτη μέρα του χρόνου κατά το Ινδικό θρησκευτικό ημερολόγιο (σεληνιακό ημερολόγιο). Η Chaitra Navaratri του 2017 ξεκινά την Τρίτη 28 Μαρτίου και σταματάει στις 5 Απριλίου

Ο ερχομός της Άνοιξης με τη συμβολική νίκη του Φωτός επί τους σκότους σηματοδοτεί και το ξεκίνημα της νέας χρονιάς κι όλα αυτά γιορτάζονται, υμνούνται και δοξάζονται στο μαγευτικό φεστιβάλ της Ναβαράτρι.. Ναβαράτρι σημαίνει «εννιά νύχτες», και για εννιά νύχτες υμνείται και εορτάζεται η Δημιουργική Ενέργεια του σύμπαντος με χορούς, kirtan & bhajan, ιερούς ύμνους, αρχαίες βεδικές τελετές, ανάγνωση ιερών γραφών, προσευχές, ενατένιση και διαλογισμό.. Είναι μια μοναδική ευκαιρία να εξαγνιστούμε από ότι βαραίνει τον ψυχισμό μας, και ανάλαφροι και χαρούμενοι όπως η Άνοιξη να περπατήσουμε το μονοπάτι του Φωτός

Είθισται οι συμμετέχοντες να θυσιάζουν κάτι στη διάρκεια της Ναβαράτρι. Μπορεί να είναι το κάπνισμα, ο καφές, η σοκολάτα, μια κακή συνήθεια, μια συμπεριφορά, ακόμη και η ομιλία (πολλοί μπαίνουν σε σιωπή και δεν μιλούν σε κανέναν), ως μια ένδειξη της θέλησης τους να εξαγνιστούν και να καθαρίσουν από ότι τους βαραίνει. Η Θεική Μητέρα αναλαμβάνει τα υπόλοιπα! Οι Βραχμάνοι ιερείς λένε πως, όσοι τηρούν την υπόσχεσή τους και προσεύχονται με ειλικρινή καρδιά κατά τη διάρκεια της Ναβαράτρι, θα λάβουν ένα δώρο από τη Θεϊκή Μητέρα τη δέκατη ημέρα! Είναι μαγικό το πως ανταποκρίνεται η Θεϊκή Μητέρα στις ευχές, τις προσευχές και τις επιθυμίες μας δίνοντας μας αυτό που χρειαζόμαστε, το οποίο μερικές φορές φαίνεται δυσάρεστο ή δύσκολο, όπως π.χ. ένας χωρισμός, ανοίγει όμως νέους δρόμους και δυνατότητες και στο τέλος μένει μόνο η ευλογία!

Η ενέργεια που εκλύεται κατά τους εορτασμούς της Ναβαράτρι είναι κάτι μοναδικό. Θεϊκή ενέργεια υψηλής , υψηλότατης δόνησης ιδίως κατά τις τεράστιες τελετές της φωτιάς (yagna ή havan) που γίνονται κάθε μέρα στις 12 περίπου το μεσημέρι. Οι συμμετέχοντες στη yagna προσφέρουν στη φωτιά φρούτα, καρύδες, ρύζι, λουλούδια, λιβάνια, αρώματα και ghee ενώ Βραχμάνοι ιερείς ψάλλουν ασταμάτητα μάντρα και στότρας. Η φωτιά , κατά τις Βέδες είναι η πιο χειροπιαστή εκδήλωση της κοσμικής ενέργειας Mahashakti, στον φυσικό κόσμο. Η φωτιά δε των yagnas, έχει μια ενέργεια μεθυστική, σαγηνευτική και άκρως εξαγνιστική. Η φωτιά των yagnas της Ναβαράτρι είναι τόσο δυνατή που λέγεται ότι καίει συσσωρευμένο κάρμα χρόνων. Η Θεική Μητέρα καίει ότι της παραδώσουμε στις φλόγες της: θυμό, λαγνεία, λαιμαργία, φόβο, ενώ οι προσευχές που συνοδεύουν τις προσφορές μας στη φωτιά, (καρύδες κυρίως) βρίσκουν άμεση ανταπόκριση.

Οι εννιαήμεροι εορτασμοί της Ναβαράτρι είναι μια ευκαιρία για αποτοξίνωση (σωματική, ενεργειακή και συναισθηματική), μια ευκαρία να αποκτήσουμε απόσταση απ όλες τις συνήθειες και τη μηχανικότητα του νου, και να στρέψουμε την προσοχή μέσα μας σ αυτό που ποτέ δεν αλλάζει. Μια ευκαιρία για σιωπή, ενατένιση, μια ευκαιρία για επανασύνδεση με το Θεϊκό μέσα μας. Είναι τέλος μια πρόσκληση στην γιορτή της ζωής, γιατί ο Θεός είναι χαρά!

Για όσους δεν μπορούμε να παρευρεθούμε σε κάποιο άσραμ, μπορούμε να γιορτάσουμε τη Ναβαράτρι στο σπίτι μας. Στολίζοντας το altar μας με λουλούδια, προσφέροντας φρούτα και γλυκά στην Θεότητα με την οποία νιώθουμε συνδεδεμένοι, τραγουδώντας bajan και kirtan, απαγγέλοντας τα ονόματα της Θεικής Μητέρας, προσφέροντας ανιδιοτελώς γύρω μας χωρίς να περιμένουμε ανταπόδοση, παραδίδοντας αυτά που κάνουμε στο θέλημα του Θεού, θυσιάζοντας μια κακιά συνήθεια ή κάτι που μας ενοχλεί και θέλουμε να απαλλαγούμε.

Για εννιά ημέρες και εννιά νύχτες, ως τις 5 Απριλίου, το κανάλι είναι ανοιχτό για όποιον θέλει να συντονιστεί με την Κοσμική Μητέρα Mahashakti.

Είθε η Ενέργεια της Θεικής Μητέρας, να μας ευλογεί , να μας εξαγνίζει, να μας καθοδηγεί και να μας προστατεύει πάντα

Δόξα στη Θεϊκή Μητέρα του Σύμπαντος!

"The fact is that your daily routine work from morning till night is the real Kriya Yoga. The union of morning and evening (that is, the work of your whole day) is the real Kriya Yoga.

"The union of that work which is started in the morning and finished in the evening is real Kriya Yoga. I don't want to brainwash people; they have already been brain-washed! Those who are doing the brain-washing themselves do not understand the meaning of Kriya and Yoga (union). There is nothing like Kriya Yoga. There is nothing in this world that is not Kriya Yoga. Perfection in work is the real Kriya Yoga. Every action in this world, including eating and drinking, is Kriya Yoga. The digestive process in your body is Kriya. The process of uniting any two or more things is Kriya Yoga. "The people of the world are being confused by others. Doing your own duty perfectly, ADVANCE! GO FORWARD! That is Kriya Yoga, that is Karma Yoga - by this means only can you make progress. Perfection in work is Kriya Yoga.

"All the scientists now thriving in this world are Kriya Yogis. Concentrated and meditative people are all Kriya Yogis. There is no such separate thing as Kriya Yoga. People have been misled - thousands and millions of people have been ensnared in this trap. Only that is Kriya which brings peace and happiness and all kinds of benefits to people. To do good actions is Kriya Yoga. Worship (Puja) is also Kriya Yoga, worship of any deity is Kriya Yoga.

"You must all do service to humanity, THAT is Kriya Yoga. The times now demand this of you in this world. In every way, in every manner possible, do good to others and make them happy - that is Kriya Yoga. To each individual and to every country, provide what they lack."

There will always be hills and mountains to overcome on the way to God.

 Do not be disturbed by the mountain falling down.

 It is the duty of the mountain to fall down and it is the duty of the soldiers to move the mountain.

The water to clean the heart is the Name of God

The water to clean the heart is the Name of God

16 NOVEMBER 1982

Of greatest importance is that the repetition of God´s name increases daily. In this way, your heart and mind will be purified. Only then will you find God in yourself.

The mind can be purified only by japa. This is the only medicine for the disease of mind.

While your mind and heart are impure, how can God live in your heart?

The water to clean the heart is the Name of God. So teach everyone to repeat the Name of God - everywhere.
