நெற்றிக்கண் தியானம் ஆபத்தை விளைவிக்கும்
-----------------------------------
தாய்க்கு மட்டுமே தெரியும் தன் குழந்தைக்கு தந்தை யாரென்று. ஒரு குருவுக்கு மட்டுமே தெரியும் தெய்வங்களை கடந்த கடவுள் யாரென்று. மாதா பிதா குரு கடவுள். மாதா பிதாவிற்கு சிறு தெய்வங்களை காட்டத் தெரியுமே தவிர, உண்மைக் கடவுளை காட்டத் தெரியாது. திருவடிக் கனல் பாதம் என்று சொல்லக்கூடிய உடம்பார் அழிவர் உயிரார் அழிவர் என்பதற்கிணங்க,உடம்பின் மூலாதாரத் தாயே திருக்கோவில். அத்தாயே உயிர்த் தந்தையாகிய முச்சந்தி கூடும் நெருப்பு பாலத் திருமுடியாகிய நெற்றிக்குள் அந்தரத்தின் அம்பலத்தில் ஆடும் சிவனை காட்டக்கூடியவள். எனவே அத் தாயை தவிக்க விட்டு நேரிடையாக தியானிக்கும் நெற்றிக்கண் தியானம் எதிர்மாறான விளைவுகளை உண்டு பண்ணும்.சிறு சிறு மாயை ஒளியும் ஆனந்த நிலையை உண்டு பண்ணி மறையும். ஒரு குரு தொட்டுக் காட்டும் திருவடிப் பாதமான மூலாதாரத் தாயின் வாயிலாக திருமுடித் தந்தையின் நெற்றிக் கண்ணை தொழுவார்க்கு ஒரு தீங்கில்லையே.

Patanjali Yoga Sutras emphasize on using subconscious mental powers to improve potential and productivity.

Sutra 4.9: जातिदेशकालव्यवहितानामप्यानन्तर्यं स्मृतिसंस्कारयोरेकरूपत्वात्॥

The images created in the mind and the actions that arise out of them condition the mind to form tendencies which manifest when circumstances are favorable.

The real and permanent art of living

The happy moments of this world are also temporary and they give you lot of worry after sometime. Suppose you love your son. That love stays in your heart. Later on when your son insults you, you feel very much worried and the cause of your worry is only your love for your son. Therefore, all the matters concerned with this world will either worry you in the beginning or at the end. So scholars close their mind to all matters of the world and open their mind to all matters of God. This is the real and permanent art of living. In a temporary art of living, the mind is closed to only those worldly matters, which are worrying in the beginning itself, while the mind is open to those worldly matters, which give happiness in the beginning. In such a temporary art of living, life ends with grief alone, since all worldly matters end only with grief.

Appearance of God to departed soul in heaven

Q) People of Heaven will be busy in their delights and suddenly a divine light will glitter over them. They will raise their heads to find that their Lord is manifested on them saying ‘Peace be upon you O’ People of Heaven’

Swami replied: People of heaven stand for the devoted-departed souls in energetic bodies in the upper world called heaven. The light appeared is nothing but the Holy Spirit without form as per the main belief of Islam and with form as per the main belief of Christianity (of course, Christianity also believes in Holy Spirit). This is nothing but the appearance of the relevant energetic incarnation of God to the souls in energetic bodies devoted to God. Relevant form of God always appears and speaks. The energetic incarnation of God tells them to maintain peace and not be excited by the vision. Peace makes the preservation of energy necessary for the propagation work and excitation leads to loss of energy to damage the same work.

Mere vision need not create pleasure unless the soul participates in the work of God. The upper world also is a replica of this world only because all types of souls (ignorant and enlightened) exist there also. Hence, propagation of spiritual knowledge is necessary in the upper world also. The Gita says that peace should be maintained after coming near to God (Shamah kaaranamuchyate) for the same reason of preservation of energy for work.

Ravana saw the energetic forms of Lord Brahma and Lord Shiva. What is the use? He did not serve God in practical way. Vision is not of any use to please God. Even if you have not seen God, if you participate in the work of God to maintain balance and peace of society, God is pleased with you. Rama never had the vision of Lord Shiva or Lord Brahma in His lifetime. He constantly worked to uplift justice in the society (pravrutti). Even though Ravana had vision of God, he was destroyed. Even if Rama did not see God, Rama had always the victory blessed by God.

Believing our emotions are telling us the truth and what to do about other people, places and things is like believe our gas gauge in our car is telling us what is wrong with every other car on the road except ours. Emotions are always about us and has nothing to do with other people, places and things.
