Real Aim of Yoga
« on: October 07, 2012, 12:26:32 PM »


If you uphold the neutrality as the meaning of Yoga, all the stones are blessed with Yoga without any effort. But, the ethical scripture (Manusmriti) says that the condemned souls are born as stones and trees. This contradicts your theory [the theory of misinterpreted advaitin is to be neutral to both happiness and misery]! By the theory of neutrality, you contradict the inherent nature of the human being. Therefore, such neutrality is not the aim of Yoga. Enjoyment is the inherent characteristic of awareness and hence, Yoga of human beings is based on this inherent nature only. By this way also, the purpose with God can be done away and hence, in this way also Yoga happens to be the basis of spirituality. This way is based on the natural characteristic of human beings and hence, is more logical and convenient. Hence, Yoga means only the equality in enjoyment of both misery and happiness and not the inertness of a stone to become neutral to both happiness and misery.

Rama enjoyed internally both misery and happiness though the external feelings were according to misery and happiness. Rama means the enjoyer. The external symptoms to happiness and misery were maintained as in the case of ordinary human beings. He laughed in happy situations and wept in tragic situations like an ordinary human being smiling, while eating sweet dishes and weeping, while eating hot dishes. The human being may shed tears and vibrate the tongue with discomfort while eating the hot dish. But, he is enjoying the hot dish internally. Therefore, the divine nature of continuous enjoyment is hidden and internal in the case of Rama. If you take the case of Krishna, He smiled in both happiness and misery. A grown up adult smiles even while eating the hot dishes. This means the divine nature of enjoyment in both [happiness and misery] is expressed externally also in the case of Krishna. Hence, Rama is said to be (¾)th  human incarnation (12 kalas), whereas Krishna is said to be full incarnation (16 kalas). There is reason for this difference. The standard of people has fallen from Rama to Krishna. People in the time of Rama could recognize His internal nature of continuous enjoyment. Therefore, the internal state was not exposed. But, in the time of Krishna, the devotees have no capacity to recognize the internal enjoyment of the Lord in the misery. People conclude only based on the external symptoms in the time of Krishna. Therefore, there was a necessity to expose the state of continuous enjoyment externally also. Rama wept in misery but Krishna always smiled even in the misery. In both cases, the state of continuous enjoyment of both misery and happiness is one and the same.


Almost one year has passed while Bhagavan Shri Satya Sai Baba left His mortal body. Baba was hospitalized for a long period. But, none has found the expression of sadness in His face during that period of death. This indicates the style of Lord Krishna. If you see the death of Shirdi Sai Baba, you can find some expression of pain during the time of death. This was the style of Rama. There is external difference but internally both are one and the same in enjoying the death. In every human being, there are three parts. The first one is Atman, which is the basic inert energy. The second one, Jeeva, is the bundle of qualities and feelings. The third part is the inert gross body. Atman is called causal body and Jeeva is called as subtle body. All these three bodies are present in every human being including the human incarnation.

The difference between human being and the human incarnation is due to the existence of extra unimaginable God in the human being as the fourth part. The gross body is decomposed and merges with the constituents of this gross world. The subtle body should be maintained to serve the Lord in the upper world as per Ramanuja and Madhva. In the salvation of Shankara, the subtle body should be destroyed so that the basic inert energy (Atman) merges with the cosmic infinite inert energy (Karya Bramhan). In the salvation of Shankara, the story of the realized human being is finished once for all. Generally, the devoted soul also is maintained by the eternality of the subtle body for the sake of guidance for souls here and there.

Similarly, after the death of human incarnation, the subtle body may remain in the upper world as per the concept of Ramanuja and Madhva or the subtle body may disappear as per the concept of Shankara. In both cases, the fourth part, the unimaginable God is separated or may remain in the subtle body present in the upper world. The choice is left to the will of the God. In the case of a realized human being, the subtle body may be destroyed or may not be destroyed as per the will of the devoted soul. But, generally, the subtle body of the human incarnation always remains in the upper world for the sake of guidance to the souls in the upper world and the devotees of this world. Hence, in the case of human incarnation, there is no destruction of any part of the four parts. The human incarnation is totally eternal. Therefore, Baba can appear in the energetic body or even in the materialized body as per His will since the subtle body representing all the Divine qualities remains eternal. Therefore, nothing is lost in the case of human incarnation. Hence, there is no need of trace of worry about the human incarnation.

Hi, interesting post.
But, I really don't know what you are talking about. You jump right in with some basic assumptions about yoga and neutrality, and blessing stones with yoga, etc. Are you referring to or answering another post? And if so, which one?
Thanks
Chris K.

Yoga is the most prestigious field of spiritualism. People think about 6 wheels (Chakras) or lotus flowers present in the spinal card, which are not seen by the eyes. They are imaginary and so they carry some inner meaning. When you say a face as a moon, fools search for moon in that face. But, wise people see similarity in the face and moon. Similarly, wheels and lotus flowers should not be searched in the spinal card. Spinal card is the main nerve, representing mind, which is the base of love.

All these wheels or lotus flowers are the bonds of love in the various relatives like parents, wife or husband, children etc. They are compared to wheels or the revolving whirlpools in the ocean, which attract a swimmer and drown him. Similarly, these love wheels are compared to lotus flowers, since the lotus flowers attract the bee by sweet fragrance and bind it. Similarly, these love flowers attract any one and bind them. “Kundalini” is the mind which is the energy travelling as waves like a serpent, should cross all these love wheels connected to 7th lotus flower in the head called “Sahasrara”, which is Buddhi or intelligence that takes the decision, which is the firm love on God.

Bhagavat Gita is called as the main scripture of Yoga (Yoga-Sastra). Why there is not even single reference to these wheels or lotus flowers in anywhere in Gita or even in Upanishats? Since they are not real, they are not even mentioned. The author of the Gita was Krishna, who was called Master of Yoga (Yogeswara). Krishna also says that the real yoga was lost since long (Sa kaleneha mahata….). This means that in the beginning, Sages in India knew the real yoga and loved God only crossing all their family bonds. In due course of time only, this true yoga was lost. Why? The middle age Indians were unable to cross their family bonds and so failed to succeed in Yoga.

They wanted to cover their in ability by twisting the very concept of yoga. The family bonds were removed from the concept and only wheels or lotus flowers are left fixed. Now, they close the eyes and say that they have seen the lotus flowers or wheels, which are only imaginary. Now they cross these wheels by their imaginary “Kundalini” and say that they have succeeded in Yoga. These blind teachers are also not to be blamed, because they were trained like that by their blind teachers. This misinterpretation was done long time back and hence, even at the time of Krishna, He told that yoga was lost since a long time.

We cannot catch those original culprits, who were the top most twisting masters and so the present tradition also cannot be blamed. Only rectification is the way left over. Some say that they see light, which is only an imagination. After all, the mind is a form of energy and on its concentration imaginary light can be imagined. Instead of such a week light, you better see a strong light with your open eyes. What is the use of these imaginary lights and colours, without achieving the Lord through your love, which excels the various worldly, loves.

I pity the foreigners, who are trapped in this false imaginary line of yoga, who are wasting their precious lifetime and energy. In fact, they are the best to succeed in yoga, if the reality of the yoga is exposed. Their family bonds are very weak and their love towards God is real, which is proved by their huge sacrifice of money to God’s work. Money is the fruit of work and its sacrifice for God’s work is “Karma phala tyaga” as mentioned in Gita. Again, the middle age Indians twisted this word “Karma phala tyaga” as sacrifice of the fruit of the work like praying God instead of sacrifice of money.

The reason was that these Indians were unable to sacrifice money to God due to their strong love on their children. Foreigners ask their children to earn after certain age. Indians store money even for ten generations and still continue to store only. Since prayers, meditation and knowledge are very much diverted to God, India was blessed by God with good language, good mind and good knowledge.

Since foreigners are good in sacrifice, God blessed them with good wealth. Even Indian spiritual centres were strongly funded by foreigners only. Swami Vivekananda cried, “Why my India suffers with poverty in spite of so much spiritual knowledge?” Sacrifice of money (Karma phala tyaga) and sacrifice of work (karma Sanyasa) put together constitute the God’s service, which is the real Yoga (real proof of love) called “Karma yoga” in Gita. Foreigners are the best in this karma yoga and so they easily succeed in yoga. Throughout Gita, this karma yoga was explained as yoga and wheels or lotus flowers are not at all mentioned.
