Three steps to the ultimate experience

Morning satsang at Bidadi ashram

Friday, 18 May 2012

Bhagavan  Ramana Maharshi very beautifully sings in ‘40 verses on Reality’ - if you just sit on the Self-remembrance that you exist, all this maya of name, form, time, space, everything, will just dissolve into yourself. That is the advaita anubhooti - the ultimate experience. Only when you become enlightened, you will understand that dvaita, vishishtaadvaita, all these are only different steps. The final, ultimate experience is advaita.  I tell you, if you are struggling between the self-remembrance and self-forgetting, that zone is dvaita- I am different, Divine is different. If the self-remembrance is more powerful than the self-forgetting – self remembrance is 51% and self-forgetting is 49% - then it is Vishishtaadvaita - it is me, but I am an extension of Him. If self-remembrance has conquered self-forgetting and become 100%, that is advaita. That’s all.

Bhagavan Sri Krishna says in Bhagavad Gita – ‘With the help of praana & apaana, I consume everything’. It is not just food. It is time, space and pure consciousness. He swallows everything just with this one process of praana & apaana. So support your praana consciously through eN-chanting, feeling connection and unclutching. Let your vaak (speech-power) be engaged in eN-chanting, let your emotion be engaged in the strong prayerful feeling connection, let your being be engaged in unclutching. Constantly take this up as a spiritual practice from today for 21 days. I tell you, if you can increase your praana, the self- remembrance, you will consume this whole maya and sit as vishwaroopa.
