Meditation & Japa nama


Meditation & Japa nama
 
In this dark age (Kali Yuga) the mind of man is weak and restless from the first day of birth. Because of this, no one is able to do the real practice of meditation anymore, but everyone can pray and repeat and chant the name of the Lord, using whichever divine name his religion teaches.

One Universal Family


👪 One Universal Family 👪
~ 'The Teachings of Babaji'

"Everyone should forget nationality; we are one here. This is a universal family. Have no idea of separation of identity; discard feelings of separateness. Serve the people with mind, body, wealth, brain"
- Dec. 16, 1981
 
"I do not recognize castes and races. I behold only one humanity. I am working for mankind while here"
- June 21, 1982

"Shri Babaji teaches us about the unity of creation. We are all made from the five elements; we are all of one spirit. In all respects, we are one humanity, one human family. Limitations arise from political beliefs and world leaders who mold thinking to time, place and culture, thereby creating differences and separateness. The birthright of all mankind is to love and follow God. Limitations arise from erroneous human beliefs. Shri Babaji has appeared to illumine the minds and hearts of mankind, so that unity and harmony may be known to all.

Practice Karma Yoga and progress

 
Practice Karma Yoga and progress
 
23 September 1983

"... So all of you have to go beyond the fear of death and the hope of life and go on doing Karma Yoga. Karma Yoga is the only type of yoga that gives immediate results. Whatever you do in the morning, you can see the results in the evening, standing before you like a picture. The seeds sown in the morning sprout by the evening. The farmer harvests the results of his Karma Yoga after six months. Everyone does Karma naturally, no one can remain without it. We must perform those actions which will benefit others - and not only other people but the whole of Creation.

"It is of no use to give birth to millions of sheep. One hard working human being is enough to save the world. We must all become hard working and teach coming generations as well. All other forms of yoga come second only to Karma Yoga because the whole world is maintained by Karma. So practice Karma Yoga and progress. People in the world nowadays have become very cowardly. That is why we have to be courageous, adventurous.

Babaji's Lila with Shdema


Babaji's Lila with Shdema

Babaji would allow people to stay in His ashram for limited times, according to whatever that person needed to learn from Him. For some people it would be one day, other a few days, and for some, if they were lucky, a few weeks or even months. The intensity of energy, just being around Babaji, was sometimes overwhelming, and He would certainly “crack your ease”.

“Babaji’s ability to read my thoughts often amazed me to no end. At first, it scared the daylights out of me; then I found it amusing and even exhilarating; soon I got used to it. Everyone around me took it as a matter of fact that Babaji knew not only their thoughts, but their every activity and conversation, near or far away. I also experienced this phenomenon.

“It was during my second visit to Babaji that I suddenly felt that I was crazy to be there, so far away from home, away from my husband, my son, my work, my style of life, etc. I was out in the jungle with snakes, and with worms in my stool. I had insects biting me all night long. It was hot.

“I wondered, am I a masochist or what? What did I need all this for? So I decided to ask Babaji specifically what it is He can teach me. I thought to myself that if He could teach me teleportation, then it would be worth my while to endure the suffering.

“I gathered courage, for it had been recommended to me to never ask Him for anything. I had been told that He knows exactly what I need and that He would supply me with the appropriate teachings at the right time. Still, I asked Him, ‘What can you teach me, and can I learn teleportation?’
“He answered, ‘I can teach you how to be silent and how to obey my orders. You talk too much, I don’t like people that talk too much … you can leave tomorrow.’

“So I had to leave the next day. A part of me was happy, and a part was sad. I packed my luggage and was ready to leave. As I sat on the steps, waiting for the horse, after I had said goodbye to everyone, I closed my eyes and started to question myself: ‘Where did I go wrong? What did I do? All I asked was whether you could teach me teleportation.’

“What I heard in my mind was: ‘You have too many desires.’ ‘Aha! So that’s what it was,’ I thought. Okay, I was willing to let go of all my desires. I tuned inward to make sure that I meant it, and I saw a few desires here and there that I did not think I could let go of.

“I started repeating silently in my mind that I was now truly willing to give up all my desires. To make sure that I really meant it, I repeated it with my name. ‘I, Shdema, am willing to give up all of my desires.’ I felt that I was sincere. I opened my eyes and saw Babaji standing right next to me. He told me, ‘You can stay.’ I smiled and took my luggage back to my room.”

(Dr. Shdema Goodman, Psychologist, U.S.A., 1986. Extract from her book, Babaji, Meeting with Truth, at HaidakhanVishwa Mahadham, Page 64.)

Desire is the beginning of separation and suffering.


God and Maya Are One

13 October 1983

Today I asked Babaji in what sense Maya, the Cosmic Illusion, exists...

and He answered,

"That 'what is existing' is the Projection we make on reality; our Dream exists, but it is just our imagination." He added a song: ‘God and Maya are One together. Nothing of what’s existing can be different from its Creator.

Shastriji, Babaji's High Priest, explained to me that things in themselves are not good or bad, because everything that exists comes from the Divine, even that which is apparently negative; it is an illusion to think otherwise, the result of ignorance, born out of our attachment.

Desire is the beginning of separation and suffering. In the Christian religion the concept of separation is symbolized by original sin and whatever meaning or significance we wish to give to the famous apple, it’s the symbol of a personal desire and a lack of surrender to Divine Will.

“La mahakranti (destrucción, limpieza total, revolución) es necesaria y inevitable

“La mahakranti (destrucción, revolución, limpieza total) es necesaria! Por dos motivos, porque los hombres solo piensan en 'yo' y 'mío' – esto no es la verdad, no es el camino, no es el amor; pues todos quieren ser grandes y nadie sabe ser pequeño”, “por esto ella es inevitable”.
Muchas veces, principalmente en los últimos años y meses, Babaji llamo la atención que una gran transformación (mahakranti) sería inevitable. También hablo repetidamente de como seria y que hacer para sobrevivir a ella. 
El día que dejo su cuerpo, habían algunos discípulos y visitas a su alrededor en cuanto él silenciosamente observaba un mapamundi y después, muy serio, comenzó a ojear un libro con ilustraciones sobre Hiroshima que alguien le había traído. Súbitamente, en el silencio que se había instalado a su alrededor, levantó la cabeza y, en cuanto miraba con un aire distante, dijo: “La mahakranti (destrucción, revolución, limpieza total) es necesaria! Por dos motivos”, en ese momento él se puso de pie, de modo que casi parecía amenazador, “porque los hombres solo piensan en 'yo' y 'mío' – esto no es la verdad, no es el camino, no es el amor; pues todos quieren ser grandes y nadie sabe ser pequeño”. Suspirando profundamente se dejó caer en su silla y añadiendo con voz suave, casi inaudible: “por esto ella es inevitable”.
Él vino como una inspiración de esta revolución, en favor de una gran conversión del espíritu, del pensamiento y del sentimiento. Al mismo tiempo, enfatizaba que la transformación no sería posible sin revolución material en la cual las viejas estructuras de pensamiento, formas sociales, la misma superficie de la tierra, sufrirán una transformación total.

Attach yourself to God


Attach yourself to God

"Each one of you must vow today to sacrifice everything to obtain oneness with yourself.

Be rid of attachment in your heart and be ready for the sake of righteousness to jump into the flames and water of life.

Why do you attach your minds to the transitory things in this world?
Why do you not spend time in meditation and in repeating the Lord's name?

Attach yourself to God. Be brave and always walk on."

The water to clean your heart is the Name of God


The water to clean your heart is the Name of God

"Those who see the Great God in the moon, stars, earth, air, fire and water, and always meditate on Him only, get success in life and are true devotees."

"Of greatest importance is that the Repetition of God's Name (Japa) increase daily. In this way, your heart and mind will be purified and 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 the mind. While your mind and heart are impure, how can God live in your heart? The water to clean your heart is the Name of God. So teach everyone to repeat the Name of God--everywhere."

La repetición del Nombre de Dios


Con el fin del alcanzar lo más Elevado, lo mejor es practicar constantemente la repetición del Nombre de Dios

“Todo en este mundo es el nombre de Dios, Su nombre está reflejado en todas las formas. Sólo mediante el nombre de Dios puede el alma humana experimentar la consciencia del Uno. No hay diferencia entre el nombre y la forma. Al repetir constantemente el nombre de Dios, el practicante se convierte en el nombre de Dios. Así la forma de Dios y la forma del que practica Nam Japa se vuelven una. El Nombre es Dios. Con el fin del alcanzar lo más Elevado, lo mejor es practicar constantemente la repetición del Nombre de Dios. Es por ello que las almas realizadas repiten el nombre de Dios. Es la única barca con la que uno puede cruzar las limitaciones del mundo. Es el único camino al gozo espiritual y material. Nam japa ayuda a superar todos los obstáculos” dice Bhole Baba.

BABAJI SPEAKS ABOUT JESUS CHRIST


BABAJI SPEAKS ABOUT JESUS CHRIST

One of the devotee of Babaji asked what He thinks about Jesus Christ?

Babaji said that in his youth Jesus lived in India and Tibet, and got a lot of yoga initiation. Jesus was in Benares, where he became a disciple of Babaji. There he received yogic teachings and made his first mundan, shaved off his hair. Babaji said that the crucifixion of Jesus was for the fourth and final initiation, and, being on the cross, He became one with God- he entered Nirvikalpa Samadhi which he remained in for three days ( on the 3rd day he returned to consciousness of the material world). Babaji said that Jesus is always present among us in the astral body, helping us.

Always strive for harmony in everything you do


"If you are in peace. I am in peace. 
If you get disturbed, I am disturbed. 
If you have problems. I have problems.
Always strive for harmony in everything you do. I am Harmony.

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.

En esta obscura edad (Kali Yuga), la mente del hombre es débil e intranquila desde el primer día del nacimiento.

The only religion is humanity.


 "... The only religion is humanity. There must be tolerance and forgiveness. It is our duty to set an example for this. Everyone must be human. Everyone must be courageous, facing the difficulties of life with bravery. Save yourselves and others from the adharma (lawlessness) of the world. Cowardly people are like dead people. I want to create a world of brave people who face life as it comes. We want to save the victims of atrocities and bring them out of their troubles. We want to bring peace not only to one country but to the whole world - our aim is universal peace. ..."

Now is the time for the repetition of the name of Hari (God) / GORAKHVANI

Now is the time for the repetition of the name of Hari (God) 

“Give up all the negative karma and keep a firm determination in your mind.
“If you want salvation from Kal (time) come to My shelter, 
then you will liberate and take across all those who are sleeping in this world.
“Strength in yoga is not required at this time;
Strength in penance is not required at this time;
The only strength required is the power of the Name of the Lord.

“I have given many types of knowledge and many teachings.
Now the time for knowledge and meditation is gone, the only
practice left is the repetition of the name of Hari. 

Do not try to churn the ocean, Kamalo, churn your mind instead.
There is nothing outside; everything is in the mind Kamalo.
Inside the mind there is a big ocean of milk and big islands.
Everything is present there and all of creation is present inside
one’s body. 

Always sing the glory of Gorakh and repeat the name of Shiva
with  attention. 

“Keep a firm determination and the Name will take you across the
ocean of this world. Do or don’t do other things, but do Japa
perfectly and this will take you to the heaven of Shiva.

Sri Haidakhan Babaji spoke as Gorakhnath to Vishnu Datt Misra - Kamalo


Shri Babaji with Vishnu Datt Shastriji
In 1976 Shri Babaji made a trip to Nepal with Shastriji and several other devotees. He started to recite versus in the old language of the Sadhu and Yogi's of India.He said that Shi Guru Gorakhnath was speaking through Him. 

It was there that Shri Babaji spoke words of Shri Guru Gorakhnath to Kamalo (Vishnu Datt Shastriji) who noted down this precious message the Lord gave to the world.
It has been lovingly compiled and translated together with Gaura Devi into a small booklet now known as the Gorakhvani.

Mahakhal's wheel / GORAKHVANI

Mahakhal's wheel

Look attentively at Mahakhal's wheel and his strange ways. 
He does not care about beauty 
about old or young age or childhood. 
He just turn his wheel and crushes everybody. 
But whoever repeats the Name of the Lord 
cannot be crushed. 
It'is like in a grain mill,where many grains are crushed, 
but he grain close to the centre 
are spared. 
If one stays close to the centre 
close to the Name of the Lord he will not be destroyed.

El poder del nombre de Dios /GORAKHVANI


Ahora escucha, escucha. Es por el poder del nombre que Dhruva y Prahalada alcanzaron la meta suprema. No sabían nada sobre el conocimiento o la meditación, ellos sabían solamente el nombre de Hari. He dado muchos tipos de conocimiento y muchas enseñanzas.

Ahora la época para el conocimiento y la meditación se va, la única práctica dejada es la repetición del nombre de Hari. No intentes batir el océano, Kamalo, bata su mente.

No hay nada afuera, todo está en la mente, Kamalo. Dentro de la mente hay un océano grande de leche y de  islas.

Todo está presente allí y toda la creación actual está en el interior; del cuerpo. Canta la gloria de Gorakhnath y repite siempre el nombre de Shiva con atención.

The great revolution is very near!


25 MARCH 1982

The great revolution is very near! There is no one in this world to stop it. This is a time of great destruction.

Everyone must become spiritually strong and courageous. He alone can survive who has spiritual courage. Without spiritual courage, one is dead though he is living.

The time is coming very soon. So that is why you people all must work. And be brave. Everyone must consider himself a humble servant of the world.

Babaji about equality, unity and freedom

3 APRIL 1980

Babaji spoke generally of unity. We are all equal, despite the country we come from, and national differences should be ignored. We are all a unity. We must shed all jealousy and envy because they are harmful. We are all one with each other and with God.


Babaji mentioned the freedom spoken of and promised by politicians. Then He said, in effect: "Theirs is no freedom at all. If you work and are worthy. I shall show you freedom greater than you have ever dreamed about."

MEETING WITH BABAJI IN HAIDAKHAN. ~ Diane Tylor


MEETING WITH BABAJI IN HAIDAKHAN,

AN IN-PERSON EXPERIENCE BY DIANE TYLOR OF VANCOUVER, B.C.

Full Moon, October, 1982

I was told by a friend about Babaji in 1982 when I was 23 years old. All my friend said was that He was the Babaji mentioned in Yogananda's book and that He was connected to Leonard Orr. I felt such a strong magnetic pull to go and see Him but had no time to learn anything more about Him before I found myself in India.

The first time I had private darshan with Babaji He looked at me and I felt like I was in a tunnel while the world around me disappeared. I felt like I was being seen for who I was in my entirety through the eyes of Absolute Truth. All I could think was, "My God, your eyes!"

I felt fear come up initially because I had no idea what to do around Him. However this did not stop me from going and standing right next to Him because I felt such tremendous love for His Being. He gave me a direct experience of what is spoken of in the Tibetan Book of the Dead and I was shown all the fierce deities mentioned as you often see them portrayed in the mandalas. As soon as I realized that my mind was creating them they instantly vanished and I was once again overwhelmed with love for Babaji. I knew that I had known Him forever.

As I stood beside Him I felt His energy field was like that of the biggest nuclear power plant in the universe with such power and destructive potential, but at the same time generating the greatest love there is. I kept thinking that the sun, moon, stars, the wind, the Vedas and everything on Earth are in Him, and I was so drawn to His hair and how it represents the sacred power of the Ganges. As I said, I knew next to nothing about what was proper conduct around Babaji and although I had an overwhelming urge to hug Him I thought I had better not in case it was disrespectful!! I look back on this now and laugh. There is no question that He knows our every thought.

About 3 years ago His energy landed on me like tsunami and now I am so enraptured with Him that He is on my mind constantly. He is the greatest love I have ever known and whenever I look at a picture of Him I call Him "My Beautiful Love". He has visited me regularly in dreams this year and I feel so incredibly blessed to have been with Him while He was in body. May He shine like a diamond in all of our hearts.

Om Namah Shivay

Haidakhan Babaji appearance in a cave at the foot of mount Kailash


The appearance of Shiva (in the form of (Haidakhan Babaji) in the Kumoun region and will embody in a cave at the foot of mount Kailash

Shiva said : when I appear  in the world, I will first go to the Kumoun region and will embody in a cave at the foot of mount Kailash. And though I will roam the world as an immortal saint, first I will dwell for a while in the caves of the Kumoun region. 

There grows a sacred plant named Haira and there the Gautami Ganga flows day and night. Nearby is a beautiful cave, praised in the scriptures. The place will be known as Haidakhan Viswa Mahadham. (Most sacred place in the universe) . I will be known there under the name of Haidyakhandi Baba. The people of this region will get My first dharsan in the form of the divine, pure and peaceful sadhu. 

After He concluded His speech, Shiva stood up. His ganas (companion of Shiva) also stood up and presented their gifts to Him; a kurta, a topi, a janeo, a langoti and a flower garland. Ganapati was standing next to Shiva and Kartikeya approached them. He was very happy to see Shiva as a Sadguru. Both these divine sons of Shiva asked their father's permission to accompany Him. He gave them permission to follow him as sadhus.

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


Lord Haidakhandi Babaji and Shastriji
 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.

Lord Babaji as the Divine Father and Divine Mother  / Japa on Haidiyakhandi Mantra ॐ - (Part 1)

~ Shri ShatrijiI Vishnu Datt Misra
at Siddhashram, Schweibenalp, Switzerland 1985

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.

Haidiyakhandi Yoga Taught by Lord Babaji ॐ - (Part 2)

 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)
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!
