TO THE BEST OF OUR KNOWLEDGE.
Different people follow different paths --
Some do meditation(dhyana)
Some do Bhakthi thro' Bhajan or Kirthan
Some do idol worship thro' Ritual Pooja
Hata Yoga etc.
How common goal of Brahma Jnana is achieved through
different paths ?
There are many paths like
Thaitreya Upanishad commentary says OM-KARA
Upasana is for Yatis or Sanyasis only & not for samsaris ?
Reason for this restriction is, due to extreme
dispassion(vyragya), house holder may walk away leaving
family.However other writings do not support this view.
OMKAR upasana is for nirakara (formless) sakshathkara
nada article, I have not come across anywhere that it is for
sanysis only. I, myself follow naturally Omkar as anahatha
nada successfully. Pl.read omkara nada-sound of pranava
in this blog. Reaching the goal at the earliest is very
important, instead of getting confused.
How to purify Body & MIND ?
Body cannot be purified even if you take bath many
times a day it is full of dirt & filth. In higher levels of spirituality
like Avadhutha State they may not take bath for many days.
body or covering his body.
In Sadhana we have to do Shravana,Manan
Nidhidyasana my doubt is, in Nama Smarana are above
There is a book published by a Maharaj which gives
solutions to worldly problems like sickness, poverty,life span,
snake bite,fame etc. Is it useful to follow the book ?
a solution for every problem.
Prarabhda Karma cannot be altered, however by spiritual
advancement, it will not have any influence on that person.
Onlookers of the world think he is suffering due to
Prarabhda. However I have a question for you, have you
seen anybody who has overcome death by reciting
Mruthunjaya Japa ?, no there is nobody.But Mruthunjaya
Japa goes on in this world !!
May be in some cases,it may look, this book has helped
those whose Prarabhda supported their problem.My
personal opinion is that Rama Nama Smarana what you
are doing, covers all the problems, if you are destined
to achieve them or overcome the problems.Surrendering
to God fully, leaving Prarabhda to work itself out is the
best way to live !!
I wish to tell you one of my experiences in my life--
her property) & her jewellery in some locker of a Bank in
Mangalore & passed away.
That time I used to go to that Lakshmi Temple at Ittamadu.
I had told the problem to that old lady of the temple, who
is supposed to have some siddhi(clairvoyance).
She made me to stand in front of the statue holding my hand
near shoulder & told me," you ask the Goddess to show you
& she will show it to you". Next 15 minutes I tried my best
to ask Goddess to show me,surprisingly I could not. I told
the lady," I have surrendered to Goddess fully & I live the
way,how Goddess wants me to live !! hence words are not
coming out of my mouth & I am unable to request Goddess !!"
One known person says Dhyan is the only way to God
"What did the Maharshi say then?" I asked.
"He asked me my name, what village I was from, what
work I did and how many children I had, etc."
"Did you ask Him anything?"
"I asked Him how I could be saved and how I could
earn His blessings."
"What did He tell you?"
"He asked me if there was a temple in my village. I told
him there was. He wanted to know the name of the deity
That is right. It is the natural state. Because you
are now associated with the ego you consider the
natural state to be something which interrupts your
work. You must repeat the experience until you realise
that it is your natural state. You will then find that
japa, etc., is extraneous. Still, it will be going on
automatically. Your present doubt is due to the false
identity. Japa means clinging to one thought to
the exclusion of all other thoughts. That is the
purpose of japa; it leads to dhyana which ends
our house,along with Rama-Nama Japa. Is it beneficial
Our Maharaj says Sadaka's need to know Sadhu
