The Inner Experience -- Mystic Poetry of Sant Tulsi Sahib

That the soul resides in the body is known
only to the one who has experienced it
within.

Who has adorned his chamber of Sukhmana*
and fixed his attention on the Sunn** [Void],

Who has himself seen the reflection in the
mirror within, alone values this truth;

Even as the oyster pining for the drop,

O Tulsi, knows its worth indeed.


-- Sant Tulsi Sahib of Hathras


Only the inner experience of withdrawing the soul current from the body leads to the realization that the soul inhabits the body. Such a one will experience the soul’s journey through the Sukhmana and Sunn*.

_____
NOTES:

Sukhmana or Shushumna is the central current or canal in the subtle body which is located beyond the eye center and traversed by means of spiritual practice according to the instructions of a true Master.

** The third spiritual region in the journey of the soul;

* It is believed in Indian folklore that it is only a raindrop falling into the mouth of an oyster that develops into a pearl. Thus the oyster is supposed to be pining for the raindrop

The eight limbs of yoga as outlined in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras are as follows:

1. Yama – “restraints” or right attitude toward our environment; there are five and include ahimsa (nonviolence), satya (truthfulness), asteya (non-stealing), brahmacharya (sexual responsibility), and aparigraha (non-possessiveness).
2. Niyama – “observances” or right attitude toward ourselves, of which there are five, including saucha (purity), santosha (contentment), tapas (self-discipline), svadhyaya (study of self and scriptures), and isvarapranidhana (surrender to God).
3. Asana – “seat” or “posture,” the physical practice of yoga poses which should be done balancing ease (sukha) and effort (sthira).
4. Pranayama – “control of vital life force” or breathing exercises
5. Pratyahara – “withdrawal of the senses” or drawing the attention inward to discover the source of the senses
6. Dharana – “concentration” or the practice of meditation
7. Dhyana – “clarity” that arises from meditation practice, or the state of meditation
8. Samadhi – bliss, enlightenment, oneness, the ultimate reward of meditation

Kabir on Eating Meat: Kabir is so feisty on this subject. The neverending slaughter of countless billions of lives no doubt has something to do with this I suspect. https://santmat.tumblr.com/post/174208695898/kabir-on-eating-meat

"Without a qualified teacher, the student cannot go beyond the Ocean of Samsara (cycle of death and rebirth). The inner path to the Divine is very subtle. It is arduous and is very difficult to tread. Without diligent practice, the destination seems very distant. Furthermore, the seeker experiences many temptations and obstacles. The student faces many inner struggles and temptations (that are likened to thieves and robbers who seek to rob the student of his accomplishments). These impediments cannot be removed without the assistance of the Satguru, a true teacher." (Swami Vyasanand)
