KOWTA MARKANDEYA SASTRY
CHAPTER 1 ( ARJUNA VISHAADAYOGAMU)
The divine conversation between Bhagavan Srikrishna & Arjuna is Shrimad Bhagavadgeeta simply called Gita. This was kindly given to the humanity by the Great illumined Sage Vedavyasa. The essence of 4 vedasa, 108 Upanishaths and 6 systems of learning Veda together constitute Gita
Gita is unique Model representative of all faiths.
Sankhya, Yoga, Nyaya, Vaiseshika, Meemaasa, and Vedantha branches of learning, Saaktha, Faiths of Saiva, Ganapatya, Vaishnava, Principles & procedures of all world Religions, Modern Science will get answers & solace in Gita.
The main principles of Starting, System, Strategy & Structure will also find place in Gita. Gita is translated into almost all languages of the world.
Gita is eternal. The ideals and bare truths of Gita are well appreciable and applicable to all times, present, past & Future.
The essence of Vedasa are Upanishads. The essence of Upanishads is the wishing tree Gita. Gita is the epitome of everything. Gita is the funeral of all sorrows.
Eesa kena katha prasna maandookya tittiri
Aitareyam cha chaandogyam bruhadaaranyakam tathaa
Eesa kena katha prasna monadakopanishad maandookya tittareeyam aitareyam chaandogyam and bruhadaaranyakam are ten important Upanishads.
Ten Upanishads, Gita, and Brahmasutras together are called Prasthaanthrayam.
After reading and practicing Gita theology, man will gradually undoubtedly shed his demonish, animal, human and divine traits or qualities and will illumine to be merged into God the father.
Gita is gigantic Yagna or Sacrifice.
In this Yagna, Fire place is Arjuna, matter that is to be sacrificed and put into that Fire place is Message of Gita, Hota or the taker is SriKrishna and the result is liberation from the bondage.
Gita Message starts with Asochyaananvasochastwam and ends with Maasuchah. That is it starts with ‘You are wailing about undeserved ones’ and ends with ‘’don’t wail’.
The eradication of Sorrow and getting Happiness is the soul aim & ideal of Gita. .
Birth of Gita
Gita was born at the end of Dwapara Yuga.38 years before the advent of Kali Yuga on Margasira Suddha Ekaadasi.
At the time of preaching Gita Shri Krishna was 87 years old.
The total life span of Shri Krishna was 125 years 7months and 30 ghadiyaas.
For our understading, let us call Sat in the above diagram as an effulgent lamp shedding its rays. Sat means the only Potential one.
Some rays of the lamp Sat only are passing through the transparent glass prism, Maya. The rays in the prism are called ‘Tat’ or Shri Krishna Consciousness. Some rays of Sat shall pass through Tat, the glass prism. Some will not pass through. So, Sat is in the glass prism as well as beyond this. The existance of Sat is independent where as the existance of Tat is dependant on Sat. Sat can exist with or without Tat but Tat cannot.
The rays that are refracted from the prism come out with a sound ‘
’ and does the Creation which is not eternal. Due this reason one has to say
‘Hari OM Tat Sat’ before the start of any good work.
All living, inert and non living beings are the part and parcel of this Creation. In fact only one exists which is eternal. That is Sat. Sat is Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Omniscient. It is Sat chit Anand. Sat is Truth Goodness and beauty. If Name and configuration is added then Sat will be called Creation.
Maya is the root cause of Creation. Ma means not Ya means truth. Maya is untruth.
The dream of Parabrahman is Maya. By opening his eyes man can get rid of nightmarish dream. Maya, The dream of ParaBrahman, God the Father, can be understood only through practice of essential KriyaYogaSadhana.
Jantoonaam narajanma dulabham.
To be born as a man is most difficult one amongst all living beings. It is the best.
One has to get into the OM from this incarnation, from
Krishna Consciousness/Tat, finally from Tat into the permanent abode,
Parabrahman/Sat/God the father.
The main theme of Gita:
Hey man, awake from this ignorance. Sat means the absolute/eternal Truth, Nyaasi means the Quest. Doer of the quest for absolute/eternal Truth. With the practice of KriyaYoga get Samadhi. Sama(equal or merge with) Adhi (Parabrahman, God the father), Merge with God.
Man, three bodies:
Man is having three bodies. The outer body that is with flesh and blood is called the inert Physical body. This is called Sthoola Sareera.
In side that an energetic Subtle body. This is called Sookshma Sareera.
In side that an Idea body. This is called Karana Sareera.
For the existace of these three Physical, Subtle & Idea bodies man will have individual Soul or Vyashtaatma.
The physical, health and social principles are applicable to the visible Physical body/Sthoola Sareera.
physical things, traits of past karma, desires, thoughts, etc are applicable to
the invisible Subtle body/Sookshma Sareera.
Spiritual, divine and principles pertaining to merger with Parabrahman/God the father are applicable to the invisible Idea body/Karana Sareera.
Idea body/Karana Sareera is very very nearer to Parabrahman, the remaing Subtle and Physical bodies will get the required energy for their existance from Ideabody. The sequence is from Idea to Subtle, and from Subtle to Physical body. For merger with God Man has to prepare his Physical, Subtle and then Idea bodies sequentially.
God has given Will power to Man. Misery, Pleasure, Happiness of Sense/Action organs are finally enjoyed by Physical bodt at last.
Man will not get any punishment until he does not utilise his Physical body for any crime. There is a provision for a change/realization till the last moment and can escape from the crime.

The awakened Kundalinee shall energise the Chakras (plexus) of the meditating Sadhak.
It requires 12 years for the establishment of the bad habits or past samskaaras and to weaken the will power. Again to get the will power strengthened and for the establishment of the good habits or past samskaaras 12 years’ time period of ardent Kriya Yoga is required. This is the time spent by pandavas in Jungles. 13th year is required for giving up worldly desires and do Kriyayoga Sadhana with fervour in solitude. This will lead the Meditator to get into Nirvikalpa Samadhi.

is Mahabharata. The internal war with
these evil forces by the Meditator is kriyayogasadhana. kingdom of God

Dhritarashtra and king Pandu are brothers. Dhritarashtra is blind by birth. Blind man is not entitled to rule. So Pandu got the kingdom to rule.
Pandu had two wives, Kunti and Madri. Their offsprings are called Pandavas. The offsprings of Dhritarashtra are called Kauravas.
The worm jealousy entered the mind of Duryodhana. He defeated the Pandavas deceitedly with the help of cunning Sakuni in ‘ the game of dice’, gambling. As per the conditions of this game, the Pandavas has to give kingdom to Duryodhana and they were to spend their life in forest for 12 years and one year ‘in disguise’.
Pandavas will fulfil the two conditions and return to ask Duryodhana to give back their kingdom. They will send Srikrishna as an ambassador to Kauravas for negotiations but of no use. Duryodhana will not agree to give even a space of needle. Kurukshetra war became inevitable.
Kurukshetra is Dharmakshetra, place of virtue. The armies of both sides, Pandavas and Kauravas, were lined up on either side face to face. Shree Krishna will install the chariot in between the armies at a vantage point as per the desire of Arjuna who wanted to see the warriors of both sides. Seeing the close relatives like fathers, fathers-in-law, Maternal and paternal grand fathers, uncles, Teachers, brothers etc., Arjuna started wailing and asks Shree Krishna as to how can he kill these close relations for the sake of material kingdom. He feels that it is a great sin. So he asks
Krishna to preach him
the Kartavyam, the duty. The result is Gita.
Whom the Gita should not be preached:
The Gita should not be preached to those people who are not interested to come out of this Material births and rebirths, not having respect to elders and Teachers, not having devotion towards God, who condemn God,
Yogas taught in Yoga:
Karma yoga: Execute your duty without aspiring for any benefit.
Bhaktiyoga: Having complete dedication and trust on God.
Nine ways of Bhakti, dedication:
Sravanam keertanam Smaranam Paadasevanam Archanam Vandanam Daasyam Sakhyam and Aatmaarpanam.
Eight types of Ahimsa, Non-violence:
Ahimsaa prathamo pushpah pushpamindriyanigrah
Sarvabhoota dayaa kshamaa pushpam viseshatah
Shaantipushpam tapah pushpam dhyaanapushpam tathaivacha
Satyamashtavidham pushpam vishnoh preetikaram bhavet
Non-violence, control of senses, kindness on all living beings, patience, peace, penance, meditation and truthfulness are liked by God.
Man(Mind), Buddhi(Intellect), Chitta(Sphere of thinking) and Ahamkaara(Ego or Iness) together constitutes Anthah karana.
Satwa(Positive), Rajo(Neutral) and Thamo(Negative) are the three qualities.
If the Anthah karana is filled with the mixure of Rajo and Thamo Guna then it is hardened. With this quality any amount of so called worships(Pooja), eulogizings(Stotra), religious vows(Vratham), meditation are done just for the sake of them without complete dedication and surrendering then that will not lead to liberty. Sarvabhoota Daya i.e., kindness on all living beings is quite essential. This is the Practical Vedanta or Anushtaana Vedanta.
Dhyanayoga: To remain concentrate on God only in spite of any amount of odds one may face.
To maintain equanimity in Misery and happiness, Cold and Heat, Praise and abuse, Profit and loss, honour and dishonour, Victory and defeat, is YOGA. This is what is preached by Paramatma Shree Krishna.
Gnaanayoga: Firm conviction of ‘ Aham Brahmaasmi’, Iam the GOD.
Karma, Bhakti, Dhyana and Gnaana yoga preached in Gita are not independent. They are interdependent.
To do Yagna several things like helping people, Good amount of money, performers like Hotha, Udgaata, Ritwiks, Learned Pandits, People having knowledge of Sastras, are required.
The result of Yagnas (Sacrifices) is trivial. Eternal liberty will not be the result of such Yagnas.
Shri Krishna has given Nishkama Karma Yagna/Yoga to the mankind. Caste/class distinctions, strict ablutions, huge expenditures are not involved in this. ‘’I am doing everything for God, I am not the Karta, the doer. .God is the only Karta. Eating, smelling, tasting, breathing, running, walking etc everything is done by God and only God. He is active and Iam passive.’’ This firm conviction is required. what is required is to involve God in each and every bit of day to day affairs and dedicate everything to HIM. Disowning everything making God as Karta for everything is real Yagna. Even the ferocious Kurukshetra war is also yagna if Arjuna disowns it. Even small things like Swaadhyaaya( to read himself), controlling food are also Yagnas. The result is infinite Good. It culminates into liberty.
To do Karma and dedicate it to God is Tyaagam.
To do fire sacrifice or not doing any work is not Sanyas.
Sat means Truth, Nyasam means the quest. So the Quest for Sat i.e., God is Sanyasa. Without expecting do Karma. This will lead to attain the Truth.
To worship Devas(Deities), Brahmanistas(Those who follow and step into the qualities of Brahma, the God), Masters, Mahatmas (Great Souls), and acquiring virtues like Saucham(Purity), Rujutwa (Honesty), Brahmacharyam (Celibacy), and Ahimsa (Non ,violence) are Saareerak Tapas (Bodily Penance). In fact to roam in Brahma is Brahmacharya.
Satyam brooyaat Priyam brooyaat
Priyam cha naanrutam brooyaat
Na brooyaat Satyamapriyam
Etat dharma sanaatanah
Always speak Truth but speak sweetly.
Sweetly speak but do not speak untruth.
But Truth should not be spoken harshly.
This is our ancient Dharma.
Purity of mind, Silence, Self control, Purity in thoughts are called Manasika Tapas(Mental Penance).
Configuration of Gita:
Vedas are devided into Sahmitas(Karma Kanda or Action Chapters), Brahmanas(Upasana kanda or Practcals) and Upanishads(Gnaana kanda or Wisdom/essence/moral chapters)
Gita contains 18 chapters in total.
Like Vedas, the first 6 chapters of Gita are called Karma shatkam(Action chapters), Second 6 chapters are called Bhakti shatkam(Dedication chapters), and last 6 chapters are called Gnaana shatkam(Wisdom chapters).
karma Shatkam is a mixture of Bhakti(devotion) and Gnaana(Wisdom) yogas. Bhakti Shatkam is a mixture of Karma and Gnaana(Wisdom) yogas. Gnana is a mixture of Karma and Bhakti(devotion) yogas.
Gita consists of 18 chapters. These can be devided into Four parts, Karma, Bhakti, Dhyana and Gnaana yogaas. These four Yogas are not dependant. They are inter dependant. By doing Karma one will get dedication. The continuous dedication shall lead to Dhyana, one pointedness. The intense Dhyana shall give the Sadhaka Gnana, Pure wisdom.
Object of Gita:
Every speaker should follow this procedure while giving speech. They are:
1) Upakrama—How to start the speech?
Me. (2— 7)
2) Abhyaasa— Practice.
Gita advises you to practice Bhakti(dedication) and Saranaagati(surrender to God)
3)Apoorvata— The importance of your message.
Gita highlits the importance of Nishkaamakarma, Bhakti and Dhyaana so as to get complete and pure Wisdom, Gnana.
4) Phalam — Result.
Gita counsels you to abide by the Paramatma, Stock, barrel and gun. (Manasa, Vacha and Karmana). This results in merging with HIM and not falling in the circle of Births and deaths(Janmarahityam).
5) Arthavada — The purpose of work.
Do your work by dedicating it to God. Even small amount of dedicated work shall remove gigantic worldly fear.
6) Upapatti — To ascertain the rendition of the speaker.
Nishkaama Karma(Doing one’s duty without aspiring for result), Bhakti(dedication) and Dhyana(one pointedness) shall definitely lead to pure wisdom and no rebirth. ,
.7) Upasamhaaram — Conclusion.
Give up everything and take shelter in me. (18—66).
Description of the Chapters in Gita:
1) Arjuna vishaada yoga: (The grief of Arjuna):
Bhagavan Shree Krishna has installed the chariot in between the tow armies of Pandavas and Kauravas as desired by Arjuna. Seeing the Brothers, Brothers-in-law, Fathers, Fathers-in-law, Paternal and maternal Uncles, Grand fathers, and Teachers etc.,started wailing with bitter sorrow. He orgues with Shree Krishna that what is the use of getting a kingdom after losing close kiths and kins. It is great sin. Preach me the Kartavyam, the duty. The divine conversation between Shree Krishna and Arjuna results in Gita.
In kriyayoga Sadhana, Sadhak shall face East or North, fixing the gaze in Kootastha, Spinal cord(Gaandeev Dhanush) erect and should sit in a fixed posture(Aasana). Sadhak will utilize Swaasa(breath) as Astra(weapon) during Pranayama(control of Life force)
In the initial stages of Sadhana, every Sadhak, Meditator, shall get a doubt as to whether this Yoga Sadhana shall give him the benefit of uniting with God or not? Or else he has to lose the benefits of Material life as well. People shall ridicule him as a clown who lost both Spiritual and material happiness.
To assuage the feelings of Sadhak, Bhagavan ShreeKrishna takes the role of Sadguru. He counsels his devotee Arjuna through Intution, Sajaavatmabodha. HE expatiates the reality of the Soul, the Atma. This rendition is started with Arjuna Vishaada yoga.
Krishna replies with Sankhyayoga..
2) Saankhyayoga: Cosmic Wisdom and how to attain IT. In this chapter Shree Krishna describes the configuration of Soul, the need of War, proposing the Nishkaama Karma, the qualities of Sthitapragna, the Self realized, the necessity of controlling the senses. Shree Krishna tells Arhuna to do each and every work including Kurukshetra war by being a name sake, nimitaamaatra, dedicating and attributing everything to God. Here War means internal war i.e., Sadhana. Shree Krishna explains the impotance of Sadhana. But without doing Karma Yoga Sadhana is not possible. Hence the necessity of Karma Yoga.
3) KarmaYoga: The way to Spirituality: Doing Karma without wanting for results is Yagna. Paramattma says:He is also doing and shall continue to do Karma in spite of being Paramatma and wisdom personified. One should do Karma impaasionately without apiring for results. Bhagavan Shree Krishna preaches how to be victorious against Kama( Desire,Duryodhana), Krodha(Anger, Dussaasana), Lobha (Greed, Karna ), Moha(Delusion, Sakuni), Mada(Pride, Salya) and Matsarya(Envy, Material attachment, Kritavarma,). This way the ground for Karmayoga to preach Yoga wisdom to Arjun, the Sadhak, is created.
Knowingly or unknowingly man does so many sins in his daily life while eating, cooking, sweeping, by killing living beings. Certain expiations are suggested by our ancient Rishis. They are called Panchasoonams.
4)Brahmayagna: vedaadhyan, and
5)Bhootayagna: to feed living beings.
4)Gnaanayoga: Path to Wisdom: The expression of Nishkaama Karma, Doing work without result, the sacred deelings of man of pure wisdom, the discussions of different yogas, are mentioned by Bhagavan Shree Krishna.
Karma means VihitaKarmas, the works that ought to be done.
Vikarma means Nishiddha Karmas, the works that are not to be done.
Akarma means Not doing any work and sitting idle.
The techniques required for purification of Chitta are explained in Karmayoga. Firstly Antahkarana should bepurified with NishkaamaKarmayoga(doing Karma without expecting for results).Then that that Antahkarana will be filled with pure wisdom, Suddhagnaana.
5) Karmasanyasayoga: First it will explain about Sankhya and Nishkaama Karma Yoga. Then it will explain about the qualities of Sankhya,Nishkaama Karma Yoga, Gnana yoga, Dhyana Yoga impregnated with Bhakti(Dedication).
Arjuna, the Sadhak, gets a doubt as to which yoga is better to practice. To remove that doubt, Bhagavan ShriKrishna shall explain mutual dependacy of one yoga with another. No yoga is independent of each other. All yogas are interdependent.
Unless alphabets are known, reading of words cannot be known. This leads to knowledge of sentences, then small books, then treatises. So allegorical way of learning alphabets, words, sentences and then treatises are required.
6)AtmasamyamaYoga: Demonstration of Nishkaama karma yoga, the characteristics of Yogaroodha(good Yogi), elation of Soul, nature of Gnani, the man of pure wisdom, Dhyana techniques, self control, the good fate of Yogabhrashta, the benefits of Dhyana, are preached in this.
Once the nature and signs of God is known, then one will be able to meditate on HIM with one pointedness. Hence the necessity of Vignaana Yoga occurred.
7)Vignanayoga: Nature of spirit, about wisdom with distinction of purity, each and everything is God and God only, Para and Apara Prakriti i.e., ParaBrahman and Nature, What is the meaning of Arta, the man who is need of God due to his difficulties, Jignaasu, the man who wanted to know God, Arthaarthi, the man who wanted God to provide wealth, and Gnaani, the man of Pure wisdom, worshipping methods of different Deities, and about non believers of God, are explained in this chapter. Sadhaka shall make efforts and take the rescue of God to get rid of the bondage of Births and Deaths. This Wisdom comes to the Sadhak, the meditator, through Intution that is to be cultivated by the Sadhak with self effort. This Intution is Bhagavan Shree Krishna. So Aksharaparabrahma Yoga is necessitated.
8) Aksharaparabrahma Yoga: The clarification of doubts of Arjuna about Brahman, Spirituality, Karma, the usefulness of Om Chanting, Creation, deluge, the true nature of Brahman and its attainment with Bhakti, the dedication, Sukla and Krishna paksha paths, the greatness of Yogi, are explained in this Yoga.
9)RajavidyaRajaGuhyayoga: This yoga is secret of secrets. The effect of Spirituality, the description of Parabrahman, the advent of Creation, the nature of Deity and Devil, the nature of doing work with desires and without desires, are explained in this Yoga.
10)Vibhuti Yoga: The stage is now set for explaining about the glorification of Parabrahman in a bigger way.
11) Viswaroopasandarsana Yoga: Now Arjuna, the Sadhak, has acquired the qualification with his sadhana to be able to witness and experience the Cosmic Form of Parabrahman. Parabrahman has shown his Cosmic Form to Sadhak as per his wish. Be an instrument in the hands of Parabrahman and do Kurukshetra war, the Spiritual Kriya Yoga Sadhana. Again HE comes back to his normal form as the Sadhak is not yet ready to witness this gigantic Cosmic form. With Ananyabhakti i.e., incessant Dhyana only one will be able to experience and witness this Cosmic Form. 40Watt Bulb cannot hold 1000watt Electricity. It is akin to that. Either bulb is to be of 1000Watt+ or the Electricity should be scaled down to 40watt.

Enemies are two types, Internal and External. To defeat external enemies physical eyes are required. To defeat internal enemies internal eye is required. That internal eye is called

Each and every man contains both Pandavas and Kauravas in him.
A man can not be 100% cruel. He may be having 1% Good quality or thinking. That 1% Goodness shall lead him to think ‘ Who am I, where from I have come?, what is my destination?, what I am doing is right or wrong? ’’ That leads him to do Kurukhetra war. Then with his Will Power he will try to overcome his Karma. That endeavour is called Sadhana. To reach his Home, Paramatman, is the meaning of his Sadhana.
Pure Mind, Pure Intellect and Pure Self are one and the same.
Moolaadhara(Coccygeal), Swaadhisthana(Sacral) and Manipura(Lumbar) plexus are Kurukshetra.
Manipura, Anahata(Dorsal) and Visuddha(Cervical) Chakras are Kurukshetra – Dharmakshetra.
Visuddha, Agna and Sahasrara are Dharmakshetra.
The outgoing force of life energy at the base of the spine in Moolaadhara(Coccygeal) is called Kundalinee. The Kundalinee serpent force runs down through a circular passage coiled 31/2 turns like a snake into the nerves. Only by super Psycho-Physical methods like Kriya Yoga Practice, this Kundalinee can be awakened.
The Kundalinee passage is the
of the out going Life Force at the base of the spine. This gateway is
responsible for flooding the life current from the soul region of the different
senses of sight, touch, smell, taste, and hearing, including the earth bound,
physical, creative force of sex. When this is ego oriented then it is called sleeping
Kundalinee. When it is God oriented due to Kriya sadhana, it called awakened
If the battery is not charged in regular intervals In a Mobile cell Phone whenever required, it will be dead. Man will bring his Prarabdha karma out of his accumulated Sanchita Karma. The main thing the man brings alongwith his Prarabdha karma is Hansas. One Hansa=one breath-in and one breath-out. To have a healthy and energetic life at least, one has to awaken the Kundalinee life force by doing Kriyayoga Sadhana 30 minutes in the morning and evening. This Kundalinee force is called Draupadi in Mahabharata.
Arta jana= the one who is required of help from Sadguru, embodiment of pure wisdom.
The war between Positive and negative forces during Sadhana to a Arta Jana, Arjuna or the Sadhak, is expatiated through Bhagavan Shree Krishna, Pure Intellect or Intuition. That Auspicious Sacred song is called Shreemad Bhagavadgita.
Gita = Song.
Bha= Bhakti or Dedication,
Ga= Gnana or Pure wisdom,
ta= tatwagnaan or That is You only wisdom.
The sacred song that is heard by a Sadhak through Pure mind or Parabrahman is Shreemad BhagavadGita.
Arjuna Vishaada Yogah
Dharmakshetre Kurukshetre samaavetaa yuyutsavah
Maamakaah Pandavaashchaiva kimakurvata Sanjaya 1
O, Sanjaya, My offspring and sons of Pandu have gathered in the holy plain of Kurukshetra with the interest of doing war. What did they do?
Mind normally works with the guidace given by the Senses. The Pons Varoli is a part of the Brain stem. This is situated above the Medulla and Centered below the two hemispheres of Cerebrum. This connects the Cerebrum, Cerebellum and Medulla. The size of Varoli is 1x1x11/2 Inches. It consists of ascending sensory tracts and descending motor tracts. These tracts connects the brain to the rest of the body. The Manas, the sense mind, the subtle magnetic pole turned outwars toward the world of matter, is in the Pons Varoli. This Varoli is physiologically ever busy with sensory coordination.
The cells of of Pons Varoli contains a chemical substance called Norepinephrine. This chemical stimulates the mobilization that prepares the body for action, dreaming, sleep and mind.
The Buddhi, the intelligence draws its determinating power from the Superconsciousness of Soul.
Atma, the Soul, manifests ITS consciousness through the Chakras, plexus, related to Karana Sareera, the Idea body.
Learned say ‘ Kshetre Kshetre dharma Kuru’. Do Good in each and every field. In each and every Chakra, plexu, is to be done to ward off darkness.
Each and every human being consists of Moolaadhara, Swadhistaana, Manipura, Anahata, Visuddha, Agnaa and Sahasraara Chakras in the Spinal cord pertaining to Karana Chetana, Idea body Consciousness.
Moolaadhara, Swadhistaana and Manipura Chakras in the Spinal cord are called Kuru Kshetra. They are also called Sansara Chakras or worldly plexuses. They entangle the man to be material bound.
Manipura, Anahata and Visuddha Chakras in the Spinal cord are called Kurukshetra—Dharmakshetra.
Visuddha, Agnaa and Sahasraara Chakras in the Spinal cord are called Dharmakshetra. The entangle the man to be God bound.
Dhrutam Rashtram Ena Dhritaraashtrena.
Dhritaraashtra, Blind Mind Blinded by the slavery to senses, has asked Sanjaya. The Devine insight, the one who knows oneself, the power of impartial intuitive self-analysis, discerning introspection and flawless critic in Sadhak, the meditator, is Sanjay. Sanjay means completely victorious.
The vice forces that do Karma according to the whims of material bound mind and Senses is Kauravas in Sadhak. The Pandavas are forces of virtue in the Sadhak that do Karma as per the God bound Pure Intellect, Suddha Buddhi. So the Kurukshetra War is the war between Virtue and Vice in each and every Sadhak in particular and in each and every man ingeneral.
So Sense Mind is asking as to what these forces have done before the start of Meditation.
When Sperm and Ovum unites to form a human body, a flash of light appears in the Astral world. This is Heavenly Home of Souls between incarnations. That light transmits a pattern which attracts a soul according to the Karma of that Soul.
The war of Kurukshetra is to be won on three bodies, Physical, Astral, and Idea.
1) The moral and Material war between virtue and vice on the sensory field, Kurukshetra,
2) The psychological war waged in Kriya yoga meditation on the Cerebrospinal field, Dharmakshetra —Kurukshetra. This is the war between mental tendencies/inclinations of Sense Mind, Manas, and the pure discriminative tendencies of Intelligence, Buddhi. Mind pulls the life force and consciousness towards the matter. Intelligence pulls the life force and consciousness towards the Soul
3) The Spiritual battle fought in Deep Meditation. This is fought on Cerebral field, Dharmakshetra. This is to overcome all lower states of Chetana, Consciousness. In thisbattle the Sadhak, the Meditator, shall discard all his egoity and sense slavery, fully and completely, to get united the Soul with Spirit. This victorious union of Soul and Spirit is called Samadhi, the union of human consciousness with Cosmic Consciousness.
This state of Samadhi may be achieved by Sadhak, many a number of times, till such time his Karma, Past(Sanchita), Present(Prarabdha) and Future(Aagami), is completely annihilated. In this state the yogi is liberated from all his three bodily encasements, Physical(sthoola), Astral (Sookshma) and Ideal(Karana). He will remain a free Soul in Ever-existing, Ever-Conscious, Ever New bliss of Omnipresent Spirit. This Samadhi is called Mahasamadhi. If the yogi chooses to descend again from his Samadhi into the Consciousness and activities of his body, he does so in the sublime state of Nirvikalpa Samadhi. In this highest state of externalized Soul onsciousness, he remains anchored to God Consciousness. He shall be doing duties without any attachment to the fullest satisfaction of the Cosmic plan of God.
Raajaa vachanamabraveet 2
The King Duryodhana, after having seen the systematically planned Armies of Pandavas, approached his Guru preceptor, Drona, and said as below:
From here onwards the total conversation between Arjuna and Bhagavan Shree Krishna is to be assumed as the narration by Sanja with King Dhritarashtra. between
The victory of calmness of Soul over the restlessness of Ego is of four stages: (1) Always restless, never calm. In this state the senses of man is under the complete control of Ego, Ahamkaara. (2) Sometimes restless i.e., Senses are under the control of Ego, sometimes calm i.e., Senses are under the control of Soul (3)Most of the times calm i.e., Senses are under the control of Soul mostly, few times restless i.e., Senses are under the control of Ego occassionally. (4) Always Calm, no restlessness i.e., Senses are under the completel control of Soul. This comes due to Kriya Yoga Sadhana.
Duryodhana represents king of desires. Drona represents Habits. The reason for desires is pst habits. Habits may be god, bad or mixture of Good and bad. The meditating Sadhak will have both Good and bad habits.
Tava sishyena dheemataa 3
O, Teacher, behold the great armies of Pandavas, arranged in a planned order by your disciple, Dushtadyumna.
Dushtadyumna, son of King Drupada and brother of Draupadi, represents dispassion. This comes due to deep spiritual intensity and devine devotion.
Moolaadhara, Swadhistaana, Manipura, Anahata and Visuddha CHAKRAS exist in Merudanda, Spinal cord.
Draupadi in Mahabharata represents Kundalinee lying underneath the anus in the vicinity of Moolaadhara Chakra, Sadeva Chakra. Kundalinee is individualized Maya.
21/2 Knuckles above the Moolaadhara Chakra in the Spinal Cord is the Swaadhistaanachakra, Nakula Chakra.. 21/2 Knuckles of one’s own index finger is the measurement.
Manipurachakra, Arjunachakra, exists behind navel.
Anahatachakra, Bheemachakra, exists behind Heart.
Visuddhachakra, Yudhistira, exists in Gullet.
Agnaachakra, SriKrishnaChakra, exists in Kootastha. Kootastha is the space between the eye brows in the fore head.
In the centre of the top surface of skull, above the Cerebrum, exists Brahmarandhra. Underneath the Brahmarandhra exists Sahasraarachakra, Paramatmachakra.
Drupada— Bhautika vishayavaanchaarahita, Dispassion for material enjoyment due to deep spiritual fervour.
Dushtadyumna—Antargata Atmagnana prakasam, internal effulgence burning with the fire of Soul wisdom.
Sanskaras, Habits, are of two types. they are Daivee samskaaraas, Devine Habits, and Rakshasa Samskaaraas, Demonic Habits. Drona is teacher having both the habits. So Dushtadyumna of Good habits, the commander of Pandava Armies, and Kauravas of Bad habits, both of them are his disciples.
The physical world consists of more dogs, pigs and menials than tigers. Likewise the men of vice will be numerically more than men of virtue. Likewise the armies of Kauravas exceed Pandavas.
Oh, the representative of Habits, Drona preceptor, see the armies of armies of virtue arranged by Dushtadyumna, internal effulgence burning with the fire of Soul wisdom.
Atra sooraama maheshwaasaa
Drupadascha mahaarathah 4
Saibyascha narapungavah 5
Sarvaeva mahaarathaah 6
There are many mighty heros, extraordinary bowmen as skillful as Bhima and Arjuna, in the armies of Pandavas. They are Yuyudhaana(Satyaki), Virata, and Maharatha Drupada.
Dhrishtaketu (Son of Sisupala, king of Chedi), chekitana, the powerful Kasiraja, men of eminence—Purujit, Kuntibhoja and Saibya.
The strong Yudhaamanyu, the valiant Uttamaujas, Abhimanya, and the sons of Five Pandavas. They are all Mahatrathies—all lords of great chariots.
Maharadha means the one who alone can fight singlehandedly with 10,000 warriors at a time.
In this devine Pandava army,
Bheema represents life force control, Arjuna repreaents self control. There are many warriors who are equal to the calibre of Bheema and Arjuna in the Army of Pandavas.
Yuyudhanu – Devine Dedication, Virat—Samadhi, Drupada—Teevra samvega or Impartiality, Chekitana—Adhyatmika Smriti, Memory, Kasiraj—Pragna, Pure Wisdom, Drushtaketu—Yama, Manasika Nigraha sakati, Mental equanimity, Saibya—Manasika Dhrudhatwam, Mental fortitude, Kuntibhoja—Asana, right posture, Purujit—Pratyaahara,Mental interiorization, Yudhamanyu—Praanayama, Life force control, Uttamaujas—Veeryam, Cellibacy, Abhimanyu—The one who can control oneself in all ways, and Upapandavas—the nerve centres of Chakras, Plexus. Dharan, Dhyana and Samadhi all combinely called Samyama.
All the above warriors are Maharadhies i.e., the great warriors. They all can keep away the Physical desires and helps the Sadhak, the Meditator, to continue his Sadhana.
Sperm, wavering mind that is desirous of physical pleasure, Breath and Life Force are inter related.
With the media of cellibacy the Sadhak shall move from Physical pleasure to Divinity. Devine Shradda, Dedication, means Attraction towards Parabrahman.
Adhyatmika Smriti, Spiritual Memory, Gnapti, Spirtual rememberance, Sadhak shall recognize that he is the replica of Parabrahman.
Sama means Equal/merge, Adhi means Parabrahman. To merge with Parabrahman is Samadhi.
Sadhak and Parabrahman both becoming Unity is Samadhi.
To eradicate Physical pleasure, desires and entanglememnts 12 years of ardent Sadhana is required. After that the Sadhak shall start tasting Samadhi in 13th Year.
With Pragna, Pure widom, the Sadhak shall differentiate Good and Bad. He will be able to be away from evil forces with this Pure wisdom. He will be cautious against these forces.
Due to Teevrasamvega or Nispakshapata, Impassioante impartiality, the Sadhak, Meditator, shall draw himself away from Physical wants.
Thre are three types of conflicts, Adibhautika sangharshana, Adi Daivika Sangharshana and Adhyatmika Snagharshana.
Adibhautika sangharshana: The Physical pains of Physical body.
Adi Daivika Sangharshana: The mind related problems like thoughts, thoughts emanating from the previous thought(s), etc. These come due to unsteady mind. The Mind make the Sadhak attracted to Physical wants, where as the Pure Buddhi, intellect, shall draw the Sadhak attracted to Soul due to interiorization. These are the pains of Mind.
Adhyatmika Snagharshana: The Sadhak shall be in and out of Samadhi several number of times. That is he will be coming to Physical Body Consciousness from Spiritual Consciousness due to the influence of Sanchita KARMA. After several incessant and dedicated attempts his Karma will be burnt., Ego becomes eradicated, the Sadhak shall be liberated from his three conflicts, Body, mind and Soul.
After complete liberation, Paripurna Samadhi, the Yogi can come or leave this Physical world at his will. This is called ICCHHA MRITYU. Even if incarnated, he will be anchored to Parabrahman, God the Father, always.
Abhi sarvatra manute prakasate iti Abhimanyu.
Mahabharat means the great effulgence. The Cosmic Consciousness is a great effulgence. In order to gain this Cosmic consciousness the Sadhak has to fight the forces within and without, the forces of virtue and vice, the forces of positive and negative, is MAHABHARAT.
Abhimanyu—The one who can control oneself in all ways
Abhimanyu means the one who is triumphant over self or the one who conquered himself, the liberated one.
Abhimanyu was entangled in a Delusion like cob’s web called Padmavyooha, a strategic war plan. He was surrounded by evil forces like Duryodhana(Kama, desires), Dussaasan (Krodha, Anger), Karna(Lobha, Greediness), Sakuni(Moha, Delusion), Salya(Mada, Pride), Kritaverma(Maatsarya, Jealousy), Drona(Samskaara, Habits, good or bad) and Jayadradha(Abhinivesa, determination of some purpose, good or bad). The Sadhak, Abhimanyu, with great fortitude of self control could grow beyond the consciousness of Physical, Subtle and Idea body. Then he attained Samyak Samadhi. Dharana, Dhyana and Samadhi together is called Samyak Samadhi. Samyak Samadhi is a Spiritual pinnacle, greatest Spiritual achievement.. After attaining Samyak Samadhi the Sadhak cannot live in this mundane world. He will merge with Parabrahman. It is called MAHA SAMADHI. Merging with Parabrahman is called the exit of Abhimanyu.
Dharana—to make the restless mind steady,
Dhyana—to concentrate on God only,
Samadhi—Ecstatic union with God.
Sri Mahavishnu comes in the guise of a dwarf, Vamana Avatar, and requests Emperor of Demons,
Bali, to donate three feet/steps of land. In spite of denial by Shukracharya, the Guru
preceptor of Rakshasas, the Demons, Bali donates three feet of land as promised.
The Vamana, Shree Mahavishnu, magically grows his foot /step infinitely. He keeps first foot/step of infinite measurement covering the whole earth, second foot/step covering the whole Space. HE asks
Bali as to where to keep
His third foot /step. As desired by Bali Shree Mahavishnu keeps His third foot
/step on MahaBali, the Great emperor, and pushes him to Patala, the abiss.
Patala is the region underneath the earth.
VA means Varishta, the great or steady, MANA means Mind. Vamana means the steady Mind. For steady mind three feet/steps are required.
Sadhak, the Meditator confronts three steps during his Sadhana. They are 1)Adibhautika, Physical, 2) Adidaivika, Subtle, and 3) Adhyatmika, Spiritual.
1)Adibhautika, Physical: —Bodily pains etc.,
2) Adidaivika, Subtle: — Mind related problems like thoughts, sub thoughts etc.,
3) Adhyatmika, Spiritual: — Sadhana related problems like Sleep, lazyness etc.
These are called Mala, Aavarana and Vikshepana Doshas, faults. Sadhak, Kriyayogi, seeing unity with Parabrahman, shall be cautious about these things. To make mind steady one has to annihilate these three faulty steps. One should pray God to make his Sadhana a success by keeping these three falts away from him. Everything is God and so everything is under His control. God is tangible and also intangible. So He Himself will come in some Avatar, form, and helps the ardent Meditator in his Sadhana by asking him to part with these three faults.
Sadhak shall find the his own replica in a miniature form measuring upto his thumb in Kootastha, the space between the eye brows on the forehead during the intensity of Sadhana. This miniature form is Vamana.
Chakra means thought Circles. Varti means business/ profession. Chakravarti means the mind professed with wants and thought circles. Bali Chakravarti means to do away the mind professed by wants and thought circle with dispassion..
Sukracharya means the follower of Ego. It is the source of Kama, Krodha, Lobha, Moha, Mada and Matsarya. Sacrificing these is
BALI. The Sadhak has to grow beyond these vices in him.
To keep them within ourselves without following them is pushing them into the
Abiss, Patala. Patala is not anywhere else. It is in us only. To grow beyond these sense wants with
dispassion is what is required.
Asmaakam thu visishtaaye taanibodhadwijottama
Naayakaamamasainyasya sangnaartham thaan braveemithe 7
Oh, learned one, now I will tell you about the great warriors in our Army for your rememberance.
Now Duryodhan, embodiment of desires, is narrating about the negative forces in his Army. This is nothing but the conflict of mental forces within the Sadhaka himself.
Bhavaan Bheeshmascha Karnascha krupascha samitinjayaha
Aswathama Vikarnascha Saumidattastadaivacha 8
Naanaasaastra praharanaassrveyuddha visaaradaah 9
Yourself, Bheeshma, Karna, Kripaachaarya,the one who is well versed and always victorious in warfare, Aswathaama, Bhoorisrava, and several others who are ready to shed their lives for my sake, are all great abled warriors having worn different weapons useful in warfare.
The Army of Duryodhana consists of:
Drona—habits, good or habits, Asmita, Bheeshma—ego, Asmita, Karna—attachment,Raaga, Kripaachaarya—Ignorance, Avidya, Vikarna—Dwesha, repulsion, Jayadratha—body bound inclination, Abhinivesa, Saumadatta or Bhurisrava, Son of Somadatta, —good, bad, and mixture of Good and Bad material actions, Karma, Aahwatthama—hidden desires, Aasaya,
Duryodhana—king of desires, Kama, Dussaasana—Anger, Krodha, Karna and Vikarna —Greediness, Lobha, Sakuni—Delusion, Moha, Salya—Pride, Mada, and Kritaverma—Jealousy, Maatsarya.
Aparyaaptam tadasmaakam balam Bheeshmaabhirakshitam
Paryaaptam twidameteshaam balam Bheemabhirakshitam
Our unlimited Army having such great warriors is being protected by Bheeshma. Limited Pandava Army is being protected by Bheema
Kauravas, Physical sense wants are unlimited, is being protected by Bheeshma, Ego. The sense slavery and egoism shall make the man restless due to unlimited wants and hence his Life force also will be unsteady, Chanachal, and not under his control.
Pandavas, impregnated with Truth(Satyam) and Righteousness, Dharma, is naturally a limited one that is protected by Bheema, Life force control. Man of Dharma and Truth is egoless and not a sense slave. His wants are limited and so shall have life force under his control.
Truth is eternal. It is like a fire. Untruth is like a dried grass. Any amount of dried grass cannot cover the fire, the Truth. It has to burn.
The Army under the protection of uncontrolled life force, Bheeshma, the Ego, cannot defeat or subjugate the Army under the protection of controlled life force, Bheema, aspiring to unite with Parabrahman,
Ayaneshu cha sarveshu yathaa bhaagaamavasthtaah
Bheeshmamevaabhirakshantu Bhavantassrvaevahi 11
All of you, be in your planned war strategies, and protect Bheeshma from your assigned places.
Duryodhana, the king desire,Kama, king of evil forces, is always afraid of Spiritual forces of Virtue. So he always call his evil forces to protect his Ego. If ego is annihilated the goal to reach God will be smooth and easier. Here Duryodhan is calling all his forces to protect Bheeshma, the Ego.
Only Bheema, the Life force control, is alone sufficient to protect Pandavas, the Devine forces of virtue in the Sadhak. That is the strength of Life force control. All other evil forces will have no effect before Life force control.
Tasyasamjanayan harsham kuruvruddhah pitaamahah
Simhanaadam vinadyochhai sankham dadhmou prataapvan
Oldest and powerful amongst the Kurus, Bheeshma blew his Conch Shell resounding like a roar of lion to cheer Duryodhan.
Bheeshma is the oldest in Kurus next to Bahlika.
When a man is sick or restless with sense pleasures, his breath will be faster. Likewise to cause cheerfulness to Duryodhan, the embodiment of sense wants/pleasures, Bheeshma, the Ego, blowing his Conch shell created cascaded sounds. That is due to Ego in him his breath became faster.
Tatah sankhaascha bheryascha panavaanakgomukhaah
Sahasaivaabhyahanyanta sa sabdastumulobhavat 13
Then after Bheeshma blowing his Conch shell, the rest of the warriors in Kaurava Army also blew their Conch shells, kettledrums, cymbals, tabors, and trumpets creating ruckus.
During intense meditation, Sadhak, the Meditator, shall here the sounds of physical and subtle sense organs. They will be heard aloud by the Sadhak awe stuck. They are the sounds given above.
Four things will play a great part in Sadhana. They are:
Mind, Breath, Sperm and Life force.
There are 72,000 subtle nadis exist in human body.
Amongst them three subtle nadis, Ida, Pingala and Sushumna are very important.
Ida subtle nadi exists on the left side of Spinal cord, Pingala on the right side of Spinal cord and in the middle of Spinal cord Sushumna subtle nadi exists. These three nadis travel upto Kootastha, the space between the two eye brows, together from Moolaadhara chakra underneath the anus. Ida and Pingala halt at Kootastha. Sushumna proceeds further upto Sahasrara chakra underneath the Brahmarandhra in the middle top of the head.
The Kundalinee, illusion, the individualized Maya, delusion, is called Draupadi. Kundalinee, the outgoing life force, is like a snake. Its tail is in the upper chakras and hood is near the Mooladhara chakra. When man does not do any kriyayoga sadhana then it is in sleepinf state and hence called Sleeping Kundalinee. It is awakened with the Sadhana. The Tamed or awakened Kundalinee is sent through middle Sushumna subtle nadi. This is then travel through Mooladhara, Swadhistaana, Manipura, Anahata, Visuddha, Agna negative & Posite and then reach Brahmarandhra through Sahasrara.
Mooladhara, Swadhistaana and Manipura Chakras are called Mundane Chakras. This field is called Kurukshetra. Man confined to this field does not do any good, spitual Sadhana and always self centered. This field is also called Brahma Granthi, a knot.
Manipura, Anahata and Visuddha, Chakras are called Mundane—Spiritual Chakras. This field is called Kurukshetra—Dharmakshetra. Man confined to this field does have mixed mundane and spiritual feelings. Even though self centered he does think about spiritual Sadhana. This field is also called Rudra Granthi, a second knot.
Visuddha, Agna negative & Posite and Sahasrara.Chakras are called Spiritual or Devine Chakras. This field is called Dharmakshetra. Man confined to this field does only good, Spiritual Sadhana and always God centered. This field is also called Vishnu Granthi, a third and last knot.
The conflicts of subtle positive and negative forces in regard to Sadhana is called the Great war of Mahabharat.
The crossing of Mooladhara, Swadhistaana, Manipura, Anahata and Visuddha by Kundalinee force, is called marrying five husbands by Draupadi.
Tatah swetairhayairyukte mahatisyandane sthitau
Maadhavah Paandavaaschaiva divyau shankhau pradadhmatuh
After that , Sri Krishna and Arjuna seated in their great chariot with its yoke of white horses, splendidly blew their celestial conch shells.
Horses represent Senses. White indicates purity. The one who does great Sadhana with pure senses is always considered to be great. Body is the replica of Chariot. Srikrishna represents pure intellect, Suddha Buddhi. Arjuna represents the good Sadhak, the meditator. Buddhi and the good meditator both blew their Conch shells indicate the shedding of impurities. Conch shell represents Ego, Ahamkaar. Blowing the Conch shell represents the Sadhak has done Rechak, breath out with force.
Maa represents Earth, Dhava represents Husband, Madhava means the husband of Earth that is shreekrishna Consciousness or the God in Creation.

Srikrishna blew Paanchajanya, Arjuna blew Devadatta, Bheema who does ferocious works blew the great Sankha, Conch Shell, Poundra. Yudhistira blew Anantavijaya, Nakula blew Sughosha, Sahadeva blew Manipushpak. The wearer of great Bow, Dhanush, Kaasiraj, Maharathi Sikhandi, Drishtadyumna, Viraat, always victorious Satyaki, Drupada, Upapaandavaas, sons of Draupadi, Abhimanyu who had the great shoulders, and all other warriors in the Pandava Army also respectively blew their Conch shells separately.
Sikhandi is a Napumsak, neither male nor female. Sikhandi represents neutrality. Ego, Bheeshma, cannot have any role against neutrality, Sikhandi. .
Each and Every Chakra has got colour, rays, taste and sound. Sadhak hears during his sadhana are the sounds of the conflicts between the positive and negative forces. They are these sounds of Conch shells. Positive forces shall aid meditation. Negative forces oppose the meditation.
Parabrahman and Paramatma is one and the same. Brahmam pervaded through Ignorance. Its result is Creation. If the Brahmam is supposed as four parts then one part is Jagat, creation, having Name and Configuration. This ia called Vyakta Brahmam or vyaakrita Brahmam. This is visible to the senses. This is God in Creation.
The remaining three parts of the Brahmam is Avyakta Brahmam, Nirakara or Avyaakrita Brahmam. This is not visible to the senses. This is beyond Creation. This is Sat, Chit and Anand. This is Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Omniscient. This is truth, goodness and beauty.
Ateetam: Suppose you sat in a room. The room is in you as well as beyond you. This is called Ateetam. But you cannot be beyond room. Likewise God is in you and beyond you. An electronic gadget requires Electrical energy to make it work. Likewise our body requires Cosmic Energy to become conscious.
Hydrogen and oxygen are not visible to the naked eye. These two invisible airs combine together to become visible water. Sun is having effulgence which is inherent. Likewise this inert Creation, born out of ignorance is called MAYA. Ma not true, Ya means true. Maya is inherent of Parabrahman, the Cosmic Energy. The very basis or its existence is due to Parabrahman.
The Yogi who has fully recognized Parabrahman in everything cannot find Maya. Likewise man imbued with Maya cannot recognize all pervasive Paramatman.
Inert Maya, Ignorance, is the cause of Creation but not the steady Brahmam. This Maya is called Yogamaya.
Yogamaya consisting of Satwa, positive, Rajo, Neutral, and Tamo, negative, Gunas, qualities, is called Chit Sakti, Mahamaya, or Moolaprakriti, the root cause of creation.
Kaarana srishti, Idea Creation: Ignorance, Avidya, became creative with the presence of Cosmic Consciousness. From Ignorance, Avidya, impregnated with Cosmic Consciousness, first Space(Sound), Akaas(Sabda), existed. Air(Touch), Vayu(Sparsh), came out of space. From Vayu came out Fire (Configuration), Agni(Roop). Water(Taste), Varuna (Rasa), came out from Agni. Lastly Earth(Smell), Prithvi(Gandha), came out of Varuna. These are called five electricities, Panchabhootaas. They are not having their own consciousness.
The iron nails will not have its own magnetism. They get magnetized due to the presence of a Natural magnet. Likewise the cosmic consciousness gradually entered into Akasa(Space), Air(Vaayu), Fire(Agni), Water(Varuna) and Earth(Prithvi). These With the presence of Cosmic Consciousness become active and conscious. These electricities are by themselves insentient but with the presence of Parabrahmam they become sentient.
Sound(Sabda), Touch(Sparsh), Configuration(Roopa), Taste(Rupi) and Smell(Gandha), five attributes, are called Pancha Tanmatras. Omkaar is the first and foremost Sound that came out of Ignorance or Primordial nature, Moola prakriti,
This whole Jagat, Creation, borne out of OMKAR. These subtle Panchamahabhootas shall have Satwa(Positive), Rajo(Neutral) and Tamo(Negative) Gunas, qualities. The Ignorance with three Gunas is called primordial ignorance, Moola Agnaanam, Karana Srishti, Idea creation.
The idea body/creation is is called Apancheekrita or unttreated.vibratory electricities and is called Mahat.
In half of untreated Samishti Satwa Guna Sookshma Pancha Mahabhootaas (Macro Positive predominant Subtle Five Electricities) Pancha Gnaanedriyas(Five Sense organs) gradually manifested. That means Srotram(Ear) from Space(Akasa), Touch(Skin) from Air(Vayu), Chakshu(eye) from Fire(Agni), taste(tongue) from Water(Varuna), and Smell(Gandha) from Earth(Prithvi) manifested. These Ears, Skin, Eyes, Tongue and Nose are not Physical organs. They are the powers only.

From the rest half of unreated subtle Rajo Guna(Neutral) Macro Pancha Mahabhootas (Five Electricities), Mukhyaprana(prime Chief Life force) manifested. This chief life force is devided gradually into Five Pranas(Pancha Pranas) because of the works it does.
From untreated (Apancheekrita) Macro(Samishti) neutral subtle Akasha, Prana Vayu(location—Heart) manifested.
From untreated (Apancheekrita) Macro(Samishti) neutral subtle Vayu, Apana Vayu(location—Anus) manifested.

For Subtle Creation, there will be reigning deities. To understand them the following table is given:
Srikrishna Consciousness (God in Parabrahman)
Karana Srishti(Idea Creation)
Ignorance(Avidya) with its three qualities, Satwa, Rajo and Tamo, and Akasa,Vayu, Agni, Varuna & Prithvi, together is called Karana Srishti, Idea Creation.

5 Sense Organs
Five Organs of Action
Total 19 Elements.
Physical Creation or Pancheekaran:
The five Pancha Tanmatras combined in different proportions lead to Physical Creation, Sthoola Srishti. Half of the untreated Macro negative Electricities gradually combines with 1/8 of the rest of the Mahabhootas to become physical Electricities, Panchamahabhootas. Please see the table given below:
The treated five electricities, Space, Air, Fire, Water and Earth, are called as such henceforth.
The Positively predominant Subtle five Electricities is manifested from Primordial Ignorance, Avidya, Moola Prakriti, with three qualities i.e., Gunas, Satwa (positive), Rajo(Neutral) & Tamo(Negative). These Positively predominant five electricities were each having only one attribute respectively.. That is Positively predominant Akasha(Space) had Sabda(Sound), Vayu(Air) had Sparsha(Touch), Agni(Fire) had Roopa(Configuration), Varuna(Water) had Rasa(Taste) and Prithvi(Earth) had Gandha(Smell). These Sabda, Sparsha, Roopa, Rasa and Gandha are called Tanmatras(Powers) but not fleshy organs that are visible to naked eye.
This Physical creation, Sthoola Sreishti, is not like this. Physical Akasha had Sabda,
Vayu had Sabda and Sparsha,
Agni had Sabda , Sparsha and Roopa,
Varuna had Sabda , Sparsha, Roopa and Rasa,

The tremendous conch shell sounds of the warriors of Pandava Army has reverbated the Earth and the Heaven pierced the hearts of the Dhritarashtra clan.
The devine Sound of Manipushpak conch shell of Sahadeva coming out of Moolaadhara Chakra, the devine flute sound of Nakula’s Sughosha coming out of Swadhistaana, the devine Veena sound of Arjuna’s Devadatta coming out of Manipuraa, the devine Temple bell sound of Bhima’s Poundra coming out of Anahata, the devine stream water sound of Yudhishtira’s Anantavijayam coming out of Visuddha, the devine OHM sound of Srikrishna’s Paanchajanyam coming out of Agna, has frightened Duryodhan, the king of physical sense desires, and his Kaurava Army. However big a pumpkin may be it can be easily cut by a small knife. Likewise the commander of army of negative forces is afraid of positive forces of Sadhak.

Oh! King Dhritarashtra, then while the warfare was about to start in the war field, Kurukshetra, Arjuna, he whose flag bears the Monkey Emblem, lifted his bow and spoke to SriKrishna as below: —
He SriKrishna, let my chariot be placed at a strategic point in between the two armies, that I may be able to see properly the warriors with whom I have to fight.
I wanted to observe the warriors who have gathered here with a desire to fight for Duryodhana, the king of Physical sense desire.
The Consciousness/Energy that comes out of Parabrahman is termed as SriKrishna Consciousness or the God in Creation.
The God in Creation has devided itself into six types of Consciousness.
These six consciousnesses and SriKrishna Consciousness totaling seven consciousnesses are not to be seen with ordinary eye. These are visible to only enlightened yogi.
If an object is to be seen then the sun rays are to fall on that obect and then to be get reflected. This is Abhasachaitanya or reflected ego. If the ego is not reflected out and contained within to see the God within then it will lose its sheen and it will lose its negative traits fully. The eighth reflected ego i.e., the one that one expressed by manifestation of senses outwardly is only visible to the naked eyes. This reflected ego is impregnated with negative traits fully i.e., TamoGuna.
The visible and reflected water is one of the treated and tainted Pancha Mahabhootas. This water is the replica of Ganga. Bheeshma represents Abhasa chaitanya or reflected Ego.
Ganga throws seven sons into the river. These.seven sons are the the seven consciousnesses that are not visible to the naked eye.
Man is having 72,000 subtle nadis.
Three nadis, Ida, Pingala & Sushumna nadis, are very important amongst these 72,000 subtle nadis. Ida exists on the left side of Merudanda, Spinal Cord. Pingala Subtle nadi exists on the right side of Merudanda. Sushumna exists in the middle of Merudanda. All these Subtle nadis exist in the Merudanda.
These Ida, Pingala & Sushumna subtle nadis travel together from Mooladhara nearer to the Anus, and upto Kootastha in the middle of the eyebrows on the forehead. Here Ida and Pingala both will halt. Only Sushumna travels alone upto Sahasrara Chakra underneath the Brahma Randhra in the Centre top of the head.
In the Physical Merudanda, Spinal cord, there exists Sushumna. In side Sushumna exists Vajra. In side Vajra Chitra exists.
Some more subtle nadis are given below:
On both the sides of ear holes.
On both the sides of eye holes
At the end of the tongue
In the peeing hole of Phallus
The Flag emblem of Arjun is Monkey, Hanuman.
Kapi means Mind, Manas, in Sanskrit. Mind exists in the Head. So Dhwajam, Flag, is the replica of Merudanda, the Spinal cord. Mind dwells on the top of Spinal cord.. the Sadhak should steady the mind which lies on the top of the flag.
The sadhak should apply monkey face that means he should apply Khechari Mudra as instructed by Guru and then shall do Kriyayogadhyana. While doing Kriya the Sadhak shall rotate the life force from Mooladhara to Agna Positive Chakra in Kootastha, the place between the Eye brows through the Spinal Cord, the Merudanda, So doing he will magetize the Spinal cord. . this is what is the meaning of Kapidhwaja.
Evamuktwaa Hrisheekesah gudaakesena Bharata

Oh, King Dhritarashtra, having said by Arjuna, Krishna has incorporated that Great Chariot in the middle of the two armies juxtaposed to Bheeshma, Drona and all the kings and said: Oh, Arjuna, behold these Kauravas gathered here.
Gudakesa: A very cautious Sadhak who is victorious over TamoGun, Negative quality.
Hrisheekesa means Manas, the king of Indriyas, the senses.
The Spinal Cord should be straight and erect without any dent. The Sadhak should make intensive efforts to steady the mind. The sadhak should fly his Flag viz., self control. Kapi i.e., apply Khecharee Mudra before contemplating for Meditation. The spinal cord is Dhwajam. The gaze is to be fixed on the Chakras lest the unwanted thoughts will engulf the thoughts and drag the sadhak to the senses.
When the gaze is fixed in Kootastha then only the Sadhak will be able to annihilate Bheeshma the Ego, Drona the Habits, and the rest of the devilish qualities of Kauravas within him by controlling his mind.
Sadhak has to break three Grandhis, Brahma, Rudra & Vishnu.
The First Granthi Brahma Granthi extends from Mooladhara to Manipura in Kurukshetra region of the Spinal Cord. This Granthi pertains to Human consciousness. It entangles only in Physical sense pleasures as such it will cause some physical impediment or the other to the Meditator during his Meditation and shall not allow his Sadhana to continue. Since the inception of the Physical problems exist as such we chant ‘’ADI BHAUTIKA SHANTI’’. For Adibhaitika Shanti Right Posture is required.
The second Granthi i.e., Rudra Grsnthi extends from top of the Manipura to Visuddha Chakra in Krukshetra—Dharmakshetra region of the Spinal Cord.. This Granthi leads the mind to thoughts and shall not allow the Sadhak to continue his Sadhana.
The one that is without physical body (Sthoola sareera) but having Subtle(Sookshma) and dea bodies( Karana) is called Devi or Devata if it having good qualities, and Devil if it is having bad qualities.
Mind is also Subtle body. From the time of inception of Mind it is havind thoughts. So these thoughts obstruct Sadhana. That is the reason we say’’ADI BHAUTIKA SHANTI’’. Mental stability is essential for For AdiDaivika Shanti.
The third & last Granthi is Vishnu Granthi. This extends from top of Visuddha and upto Sahasraa in Dharmakshetra region. When the awakened Kundalini goes further from Visuddha the body will have levitating effect. The Mediatator gets up from Sadhana out of fear. From the time of inception of Karana Sareera these obstructions are natural to this body. That is the reason we say’’ADHYATMIKA SHANTI’’. The grace and kindness of God the almighty is essential for for Adhyatmika Shanti.
Gudakesa means the Sadhak who is always ready to overcome Maya without sleepyness &lethargyness. This sort of Body of Sadhaka is called great Chariot.
Likewise the Sadhaks who have readied their bodies for good Sadhana are respectively called Atiratha and Maharatha.

Sanjaya spoke thus:--
Then Arjuna has seen the fathers, grand fathers, teachers, maternal uncles, brothers, sons, grandsons, friends, fathers-in-law, well wishers, all together.
Having seen all those relatives fully well, Arjuna with heavy heart and wailing:spoke like thus:
The relatives so gathered there are all the negative and positive forces within the Sadhak.
when man is completely involved in mundane or material affairs and impregnated with sense pleasures then he will not recognize the God behind that intelligence. This state is called Nakaratmaka sthiti, Negative state.
When man controls his sleep, self control, and overcomes material and Physical pains is the Sakaratmakasthti, Gudakesa sthiti.
Pritha is sobriquet for Kunti. She is the representative of Patience & Peace. Partha is the son of Pritha. Partha means the Sadhak who controls his mind and prepares himself towards spirituality, stock barrel and gun. This is the state of Arjuna. In this state the Sadhak shall be getting peace & tranquility now and then.
Beejakshara chanting in Chakras and other techniques the Consciousness of Sadhak shall get concentrated on Chakras. This is the state of beatitude and selfrealization. This is still Duality State, Dwaita Sthiti.. The state in which the sadhak get united with Parabrahman is the last and final state, Adwata Sthiti
Grand parents, Parents, are the replicas for ‘ I ,Mine, Me’. That is they represent Selfishness and Ego.
Virtue and vice both are powerful. Grand parents and Parents both may be good or bad.
Drupada is the replica of Santi and sahishnuta i.e., peace and patience.
The outgoing force of life energy at he base of spine in the Mooladhara(Coccyx plexu)Chakra is called Kundalini. The Kundalini serpent force runs down through a circular passage coiled like a snake into the nerves. Only by super psychu-physical methods like Kriya yoga practice of awakening the Mooladhara one can possibly control the sex consciousness wholly by withdrawing this Kundalini force and to flow towards the brain. This kundalini life force is called Draupadi, the daughter of Drupada.
The collective delusion is called Maya. The individualized delusion is called illusion or Kundalini. Maya is related to Macro and Kundalini is related to Micro..
The Kundalini passage is called the Gate way of the life force at the base of the spine. The Kundalini gateway is responsible for flooding the life current from the soul region of the different senses of sight, touch, smell, taste, and hearing including the earth bound physical creative force of sex.
The sleeping Kundalini:
The life force flowing down from the Medulla oblongata through the spinal centres and especially through the coiled Kundalini gateway at the Mooladhara is called ‘sleeping Kundalini because it serves as the medium to establish communication with and to draw the attention of the ego to the body senses, sex, and the material world.
The Kundalini awakening:the life current while retiring or relaxing from the muscles, heart and sensory motor nerves through the passage in the Mooladhara region and produces a remarkable spiritual and physical sensation which is called Kundalini awakening.
The sleeping kundalini is to be awakened and shoukd be made to return to Sahasrara Chakra through Kriyayoga Sadhana.
Crossing of Mooladhara(Sahadeva), Swadhisthana (Nakula), Manipura(Arjuna), Anahata (Bheema) and Visuddha(Yudhisthira) by the awakened Kundalini is called Draupadi marrying five husbands.
This Draupadi is nature. Five Pandavas are Pancha Mahabhutas viz., Akasa, Vayu, Agni, Water and Prithvi.
The Upapandavas, Five sons of Five Pandavas,are the devine powers emanated when the awakened kundalini crosses the Chakras viz., Mooladhara, Swadhishtana, Manipura, Anahata and Visuddha respectively.
The negative powers are related to the Ida Subtle nadi on the left side of Sushumna in the Spinal Cord, and The Positive powers are related to the Pingala Subtle nadi on the right side of Sushumna in the Spinal Cord. The negative powers are Kauravas and Positive powers are Pandavas and their respective armies.
Habits are the Gurus or teachers, that show the path. Habits or Samskaras may be good or bad.
Good and Bad are the offsprings of Habits. Good and Bad are the well wishers and bad wishers. The sons and Grandsons are good and Bad habits are only again.

Seing these relatives of mine gathered here to fight, my limbs are losing their strength. My mouth is becoming dry. My bow Gandeevam is slipping out of my hand. My body is burning. I am not having strength to stand erect. My mind is whirling.
The Sadhak who is intense in his Sadhana is narrating his experiences to his Guru preceptor.
So far these limbs are addicted to physical pleasures and are accustomed to behave whimsically are now made to go inward to do Yoga Sadhana. These lazy limbs are experiencing physical problems to follow self control. With the chanting of OMKAR my mouth has become dry. Whether I cango forward or not in this Spiritual Kriyayoga Sadhana is what is in my mind now. This mental weakness creeped into my mind now. My bow Gandeevam i.e., my Spinal cord is bending in stead of becoming straight. As such my resolve to have self control and to get out of sense pleasures is defeating. With the lack of steadiness in Meditation my Skin i.e., Mental Consciosness is burning. Here burning means defeating. Oh, Kesava, the killer of negative forces, I am doubtful about my victory over these negative forces that are against my Sadhana. With these worried thoughts my mind is whirling. .
hatwaa swajanamaahave 31
O Krishna, I am even seing the bad omens. I am unable to percept the benefit of killing these relatives of mine in this war..
Om kar is like an arrow. The chanting of OM is like the arrow of Srirama called RAMBAAN. This Raambaan is unparallel and the most powerful one. It will not go waste without kill.. Likewise the chanted Om will not be futile. That will definitely kill the negative forces in this universe.
To utlize Swasa, the Breath, as a weapon is called SWASTRA. In usage the Swastra has become gradually came to be known as Sastra.
With the investment of Swasa, Breath, and to get the kingdom of God is Varagya. When Sadhak is not getting progress the Sadhak will be worrying. The above narration is his predicament during this state.
‘In spite of controlling the sense pleasures whether the sadhak will get beatitude or not?’ is the main grouse of Sadhak.. Over and above Physical body pains etc., and mental thought problems that are bothering the sadhak made him to think about the utility of Sadhana.
This predicament is akin to a student who is unable to solve a mathematical equation . Then student will think that mathematics is a useless subject. But with incessant efforts he can overcome the problem.

Oh Krishna, I don’t want kingdom, victory or happiness. What is the usefulness of such Kingdom, pleasures or or even the continuance of life?
O Govinda(he who presides over and is in control of the ‘’çows’ of senses)? The very ones for whose sake we desire empire, enjoyment, pleasure, remain poised here for battle, ready to relinquish wealth and life—preceptors, fathers, sons, grandfathers, uncles, fathers-in-law, grandsons, brothers-in-law, and other kinsmen.
This is the main worry that haunts the Sadhak.
Taata(Grand father) means Antahkarana, Tandri(Father) means Senses, and pautra(Grandson) means Desires, maatulaah(maternal uncles) means Habits, swasuraah(Fathers-in-law) means Sense Pleasures.
If all these things die then who will enjoy the Kingdom of God which is yet to come.
Hethoh kim nu maheekrite 35
O Krishna, even if they are inclined to kill me, I cannot kill these people. even f I obtain the kingdom of three worlds What to talk about kingdom of earth?
Madhusoodan means the remover of the Ignorance or impediments of Spirituality. This the state of the Sadhak who is fed up with the problems that are being faced by the Sadhak during Sadhana.
After crossing the three worlds, Physical, Subtle and Idea Bodies, the Sadhak will enter into the Kingdom of God. this will be obtained by the Sadhak who does sadhana with great intensity, longuivity, and great incompassion. When he fails in this then he would like to satisfy himself with the sense pleasures available within his reach. .
With a resolve to come first amongst all students in his class but when he fails then his predicament will be like this.
Kaa preetisyaat Janardhana
Janarardanaa means the fulfiller of right wants of devotees.
Oh Krishna, what happiness could we gain by killing them? We will get sin only by killing these Duryodhana clan even if they are evil minded.
Duryodhan is the replica of kaamam, desires. The failing Sadhaka thinks wrongly that these Arishadwargaas viz., Kama(Desires), Krodha(Anger), Lobha(greediness), Moha(delusion), Mada(pride) and Matsarya(Jealousy) have been created by Parabrahman for mankind only. There is nothing wrong in enjoying them.
Sthoola, Sookshma and Karana lokas(worlds) are called Tripuras. Destroying them,the Sadhaka will enter into the eternal God Kingdom. For that intensive Sadhana is essential. The one who is unable to do so shall say differently.
The manifestation of 24 tatwas from tainted Panchamahabhutaasas lead to SthoolaShareera or Physical body. This is called the Annamayakosa. Five Sense organs (Gnaanen driyas), five organs of Action(Karmendriyas), Five Pranas, Pancha Tanmatras and AntahKarana are together constitute Physical Body.
Tanmatra means Power. Akaasha has Shabda(Sound), Vayu or Air has Sparsha(Touch), Agni or Fire has Roopa(configuration), Jal or water has Rasa(taste) and Prithvi or Earth has Gandha(Smell). .
The untainted five Pranas in Subtle body and five Karmendriyas together constitute PranamayaKosa.
Five sense organs in the Subtle body, manas(mind) and Chittam together constitute Manomayakosa.
Five sense organs in the Subtle body, Ahamkar(Ego) and determining Buddhi together constitute Vignaanamayakosa.
Pranamaya, manomaya and Vignanamayakosas or sheaths together are called Sookshma Shareera.
Untainted Panchamaha bhootas and Three Gunas, Satwa, raja and Tamo, are called Avidya or Ignorance.and this is called Karana Shareera. This is called Anandamayakosa.
Avasthas or States:
Cosmic Consciousness or Brahmachetana enters Karanashareera, from Karana to Sookshma, and from Sookshma to Sthoola shareera and then making all these three Shareeras Conscious is called Jagratavastha or waking state
Cosmic Consciousness or Brahmachetana enters Karanashareera, from Karana to Sookshma, and then making these two Shareeras Conscious is called Swapnavastha or Avachetanavastha. The Jagratavastha remains unconscious..
Cosmic Consciousness or Brahmachetana enters Karanashareera, making it Conscious is called Sushuptiavastha, Thureeyavastha, Adhichetanavastha or Superconscious state. The remaining Sookshma and Sthoola remain unconscious..
The God in Creation is called Krishna Consciousness or Shuddha Satwa Maya.
The Consciousness in Creation, three conscious –nesses, karana, sookshma and Sthoola in Macro, and three consciousnesses, karana, sookshma and Sthoola in Micro, are manifested as seven consciousnesses. These are not visible to the physical and ordinary eye.
Due to the influence of Tamoguna Karanashareera will have Mala and Avarana Doshas, and because of Rajoguna vikshepana Dosha.
When a Lantern chimney is painted by Black smoke then the burning wick cannot be visible. Likewise due to Maladosha the Paramatma within us becomes invisible.
We will mistake the rope as Snake due to superimposition of darkness. So Avarana dosha or fault occurs due to Tamoguna ignorance of unsteady mind.
Love and hatred, selfishness, love, affection, kindness, Happiness, Contentment, dissatisfaction, Kama, krodha, Lobha, Moha, Mada and Matsarya etc are the vikshepana doshas. This is due to ego.
Due to Mala, Avarana and Vikshepana doshas the Karana shareera will have 1) body attachment i.e., kartritwadoshas, 2)attachment towards Finance, Offspring, and spouse, fame mongerism, 3) interest in Sastras, and 4) worldly attachment. Because of this man will have Asmita, Ragadwesha and Abhinivesa.
Asmita means Ego, Ragadwesaha means attraction and repulsion, Abhinivesha means attachment to his body.
Swajanam hi katham hatwaa
Sukhinassyama Madhava 37
Maa means Nature, Dhava means Husband. So Madhava means the one who causes Consciousness to Cosmos.
Oh Krishna, we are not eligible to kill Kauravas, our relations. How can we be happy by killing our own relatives.
Sadhak is doubtful of the happiness he can get by shedding Kaama, Krodha, Lobha, Moha, Mada and Matsarya.
For our doings habits are the root cause. The man who is accustomed to sense pleasures by default of habits will try to overcome them with will power to start Kriya Yoga Sadhana.
Drunkard will try to drink with some pretext or the other. Likewise the Sadhak who became weak in Sadhana will be seeking one pretext or the other to drop.
Yadyapyete na pashyanti
Mitradrohecha paatakam 38
Kulakshaya kritam dosham
Prapashyadbhir Janaardhana 39
Oh Krishna, Even if these Kauravas are eclipsed by greed and do not see the calamity that comes out of destroying the families or lineages, and behold no sin in the atrocities commited to friends, should we not avoid this sin—we who vividly understand these things.
Paapam and Punyam, Sin & virtue, both are the creations of Maya the delusion which is under the control of Paramatma. Arishadwargaas (Kama, Krodha, Lobha, Moha, Mada and Matsarya) are the offsprings of senses. The senses work through Mind. They some times may manifest preposterously. Just because of this if we annihilate them then how misery and happiness will be expressed. We who have the discernment should commit the same sin. With this thinking the Sadhak feels that both the things i.e., yielding to Sense pleasures and Sadhana for understanding good and bad, are required. It is akin to taking poison and its inimical nector simultaneously..
Out of all the allurements, unsteady mind is very bad one. This will make you to get attracted to the worldy affairs and make you fully ignorant about God. if we do gradual and incessant Sadhana then we will always remain in God.
Vice has got its own power. When man yields to allurement then his discrimination or wisdom will be its captive. Wants are the most undesirable enemies to man. If you go on satisfying the senses then they will go on asking for more and more desires. It is an uphill task to fully satisfy the senses.man is not senses, they are his slaves only. Man is not slave to senses. Man in reality is Soul that is beyond the senses.
Allurement is not the creation of Man. It is due to Maya which is under the control of Parabrahman. All men are affected by its spell. To come out of its clutches God has given Antaratma and will power to man to overcome this Maya.
Due to body attachment and sense pleasures Man forgets Soul. This is called allurement or illusion. This is sugarcoated poison. Mundane happiness is naught compared the attainment of Kingdom of God which happiness is eternal. This eternal beatitude that man attains is not comparable with anything. This is indescribable. One day or the other Man has to turn towards God. why not that day be today? We are the children of the God. that is why God has given us the power to meditate.
Dharme nashte kulam kritsnam
Adharmaabh bhavaat Krishna
Streeshu dushtaasu vaarshneya
Jaayate varnasamkarah 41
Luptapindodaka kriyaah 42
O Krishna, with the destruction of pedigree, the age-old religious customs will fade away. With the destruction of righteousness, unrighteousness will spread in the clan. With the spreading of unrighteousness, the chastity in women will get damaged. With this, bastardy or adultery takes place amongst the castes.then the adulterater and the adulterer both will go to hell.. Then their ancestors are denied the oblations of rice-Ball and water, and are degraded and go to low nadirs. .
Varshneaya means skillful, powerful and strong.
Janaardana means the one who listens to the prayers of devotees.
Many doubts, small and preposterous, shall be arising during Sadhana.
Five sense organs, five Action organs, five Five Tanmatras, Five Pranas, and Antahkarana, together are called Kulam(Caste). The castes and their rites are given below:
Five sense organs: Ear, Skin, Eye, Tongue and Nose.
Five Action Organs: Mouth, Feet, Palms, Phallus and Anus.
Five Tanmatras: Hearing power, Touching power, Seeing power, Tasting power and Smelling power.
Five Pranas: Prana(Crystallization),
Antahkarana: Manas(Mind), Buddhi(Intellect), Chittam(sphere of thinking) and Ahamkaar(Ego).
If they are not put to use during or because of Sadhana, they will become idle and will become useless. The lust will die in men and hence due to the unfulfilment of lust, the women will be spoiled. Sadhak raises a preposterous and mundane logical doubt.
Controlling lust does not mean to become a neuter.
Ladies will have more feeling than logic. Gents will have more logic than feeling. But this may be otherway around in Men and women. In that case a man is more feminine than logical, or a woman may be more logical than feminine.
In a couple one should have feeling and the counterpart should have logic. Otherwise this lead to problems. This is what they see in Horoscopes while fixing the matches amongst Hindus. For example if the offspring of a couple had met with an injury and if she is bleeding, then the one who is having feeling in the parents will give succour and the other will take the child to the Doctor. If both the husband and wife are having feeling, then both will be hugging the child and crying and no one will take the child to the Doctor. If both are logical then both will be orguing about the Doctor to whom the child is to be taken and waste time in the orgumets. No one will take the child to the Doctor. So one should be having feeling and the other will have logic.
With Meditation the mind will go within. With the innergoing Antahkarana Man will be able to understand the extraordinary powers of Senses.
Manas, Buddhi, Chittam and Ahamkaar are our ancestors.
Tarpanam means inward turned Pranashakti or Life Force.
Doing Spiritual Kriyayoga Sadhana with regularity, interest, longuity and intensity are called Rice-balls or Pindokaas.
These oblations, Rice-balls will make the senses more and more sensitive. The mind that does not turn inwards shall not be rewarded with wonderful God power. Without God power the senses will gradually become weak.
The unutilzed Iron will become rusted. Likewise the senses will also become useless is what the Sadhak foolishly think.
The root cause of all these doubts is desire i.e., Duryodhana. The Yogi who is intense in Meditation, shall control the out going life force through Senses, make it inwards, directs it to Kootastha, the place between the eye brows, through the Spinal cord, and finally gets the appearance of third eye, Jyoti Darshan.
These are the real Tarpanams (oblations) that we give to our forefathers.
Kuladharmaashcha shaashwataah 43
Narake niyatam vaaso
O Krishna, the misdeeds i.e., the admixture of castes created by these destroyers of lineages, the age-old rites of the castes and clan are mitigated..Often we have heard that men devoid of family religious rites are most certainly committed to reside indefinitely in hell.
Our ancestors means Jeevaatma comprising of Antahkarana i.e., Manas, Buddhi, Chittam and Ahamkar.
Senses are its Offsprings.
Wants or desires are the offsprings of the senses.
The individual works that are being done by the respective senses is what we do for the satisfaction of Antahkarana, the so called Tarpanas or oblations.
Sadhak In Samadhi i.e., in the unision of soul with Spirit, shall put a full stop to these oblations. This is how the aspiring sadhak shall think of wrongly.
In fact during Samadhi the out going life force through the senses is made to take a return path to the Cosmos through Sushumna in the spinal Cord and through Chakras.
In this process we concentrate all these outgoing life forces in Kootastha by making them inward. There in Kootastha the Sadhak will see Jyoti, the effulgent third eye. These are the real Tarpanams or Oblations we offer to Soul.
Chakradhyan (Meditation in Chakras):--
Sit erect in Vajrasana, Padmasana or Sukhaasana with Gnaana Mudra. Press top of index finger with top of thumb and keep the rest of the fingers straight. Face East or North. Get relaxed. Put your gaze fixed in Kootastha. The feet should not touch the ground directly . Sadhak should wear Cotton socks. For better results bend your neck backwards. That is sit in super conscious level. Apply Khechari Mudra.
Now learn Kriya Yoga from an experienced and self realized Yogi. doing Kriyayoga go to Sahasraara.
One breath-in and one breath-out together constitutes one HAMSA.
Ordinarily a healthy man will make 21,600 Hamsas in a day. This amounts to 15 Hamsas per minute.
If a man does 15 Hamsas per minute he is called Bhogi.
If he does more than 15 Hamsas per minute he is called Rogi.
If he does less than 15 Hamsas per minute he is called Yogi.
Tortoise does less than 15 Hamsas per day. If no body kills it will live more than 1000Years.
Yogi increases his life span with the control of life force. So controlling life force, yogi will be healthy and will unite with Parabrahman.
The chakras in the Spinal cords are like Junction
The Cosmic Consciousness enters Sahasrara through Medulla oblongata. From there it will be directed to Agna Positive, Agna negative, Visuddha, Anahata, Manipura, Swadhisthana and Moolaadhara Chakras, the junction Boxes. From there the Cosmic Consciousness enters into Nerve Centres, Nerves, and then to pertinent organs.
Visuddha, Anahata, Manipura, Swadhisthana and Moolaadhara Chakras are called Castes.
Sadhak awakens the Kundalini Force lying underneath the Mooladhara Chakra with his Kriya Yoga Sadhana. The Chakra upto which his awakened Kundalini reaches shall decide his caste.
The one who does not do yoga sadhana at all is called Sudra. His kundalini is in a sleeping state.he is said to be in Kaliyuga. His heart is considered to be Black. He is in completely ignorant state.
When the man starts Kriyayoga Sadhana, then his sleeping Kundalini gradually awakens. If the awakened Kundalini reaches and touches Mooladhara Chakra, he is considered to be a Kshatriya, Warrior group. He will resist the forces that oppose his Meditation. He continues to be in Kaliyuga. His heart is considered to be Vibrant.
When the awakened Kundalini touches Swadhistaana Chakra then he is considered to be Dwija which means he has taken another bierth. He is considered to be in Dwaparayuga. His heart is considered to be Devouted..
When the awakened Kundalini touches Manipura Chakra then he is considered to be Vipra which means he is ready to study Veda. Veda means to hear. So he is ready to hear OMKAR.. He is considered to be in Tretayuga. His heart is considered to be steady.
When the awakened Kundalini touches Anahata Chakra then he is considered to be Brahmin which means he starts hearing OMKAR.. He is considered to be in Kritayuga or Satyayuga. His heart is considered to be Clean.
In this way the castes viz., Sudra, Dwija, Vipra and Brahmin are formed. They are gradually came to known as Sudra, Kshatriya ,Vaishya, and Brahmin castes. The castes are formed as per the progressed achieved in Yoga Sadhana.
Gradually the castes are determined by biological birth instead of progress in Yoga Sadhana. By and by several subcastes have been carved out of the main castes. This way several castes have come into existence. This has resulted in causing danger to the Unity, integration and safety of the country.
Stanme kshemataram bhavet . 46 .
Alas, we tried to commit great sin by killing our own kinsmen due to the greed of kingdom.
Evn if we do not wear any weapon, and still confronted by our enemies wearing weapons and kill me in this war, that will be more beneficial to me.
Eight types of marriages:
1) Braahmamu: The marriage that is solemnized with the mutual consent of bride and bridegroom witnessed by elders of both sides.
2) Daivam: The marriage that is solemnized with the mutual consent of elders from both sides.
3)AArshamu: Marriage that is solemnized by taking dowry from the bride.
4) Praajaapatyamu: Wife is essential to do Sacrices(yagna). Marriage that is solemnized to meet this requirement.
5) Aasuramu: For the benefit and safety of king, Marriage that is solemnized by giving financial assistance both bride and bridegroom.
6) Gaandharvamu: Marriage that is solemnized due to mutual love amongst both bride and bridegroom with or without the consent of elders of both sides and without following any customs, conditions and timings.
7) Raakshasam: Marriage that is solemnized by forcibly taking away the bride.
8) paishachikam: Marriage that is solemnized by administering intoxicants to the bride and marrying her while she is insane.
The Sadhak who is unable to go ahead with his Sadhana will advance more and more faulty orguments in this way.
Habituated to sense pleasres, the senses shall motivate the nerve centres and nerves to do the needed. During Sadhana the Sadhak shall control the senses. the controlled senses may not be able to activate the nerves and nerve centres. If I am not successful in Sadhana then the facility of enjoying mundane pleasures also has to be lost. So I will be on loser from both sides. This is the main doubts that arises in the sadhak. For a futuristic beatitude in sadhana, it is sin and not wise to discard sense pleasures. It is better to subjugate to senses even though they engulf me with their weapons, sense plesures. I will not utilize my weapons viz., sitting straight with erect spine and fixing the gaze in kootastha etc., for Kriya yoga Sadhana. This is what Sadhak wrongly feels.
In fact the blind mind(Dhritaraashtra) cannot be satisfied, however amount one may use ones senses for Mundane pleasures.
Visrujya sasharam chaapam
Oh, Dhritarashtra King,
Saying thus, perturbed with grief, Arjuna discarded his weapons, bow and arrows, in the war field, and simply sat in the chariot.
Arjuna—self control, bow—Spinal cord, arrows—Pranayama techniques, chariot—body, simply sat—without any posture.
Posture or Asana—Vajrasan, Padmasan or Sukhasan.
The disheartened sadhak(Arjuna) simply sat without any posture. He also discarded other requirements like sitting straight and fixing his gaze in kootastha,
Aum, Tat, Sat.

Oh King Dhritaraashtra, seing Arjuna whose eyes are bedimmed with tears, wailing with kind heart , Shree Krishna spoke thus:
In the initial stage itself it is impossible to obtain kingdom of God.. A minimum 15 years of studious efforts are required to become a Doctor, Engineer or a Scientist. Here Sanjaya represents Pure Devine thinking. Madhusoodana means the destroyer of ignorance. The Sadhak starts his Sadhana to get sudden spectacular results. When he fails in his attempt the Sanjay(Pure Devine thinking) in him will narrate his mental agony culminating from sense inclined mind(Dhritarashtra) to his Guru Madhusoodana, destroyer of ignorance.
Shree Bhagavaan uvaacha:--
Anaaryajushta maswargya makeertikaramarjuna 2
Shree Bhagavaan Said:--
Oh Arjun, in this critical juncture, where from this despair has come — this behaviour is followed by a very very ordinary man., obstructing the Gateway to Heaven and also quite discreditable.
Oh Sadhak, you are doing your Sadhana by fixing the gaze in Kootastha. Don’t be despaired. This sort of despondency is for normal mundane beings. You are making tremendous yoga Sadhana to get into kingdom of God. The devilish and cruel negative forces within you i.e., Kurrus are about to be defeated with this Sadhana. At this time where from this despondency has come? Don’t be disheartened.
Klaibyam maasmagamah paartha naitattwayyupapadyate

Paramtapa:-- the one who scorches the internal enemies that are obstructing his Yoga Sadhana..
Hey Arjun, don’t lose heart. It is not advisable to you. Discard this mean mental weakness that is weaning you away from this devine Yoga sadhana. Get up.
Pritha is the younger sister of Vasudeva. Shree Krishna is the son of Vasudeva. Pritha is the adopted daughter of Kuntibhoja. Kunti is that Pritha only. That means Kunti is the younger sister of Shree Krishna. Kunti has left her own house and made the adopted house has her own house and has accepted to treat another as her father instead of biological father. As such she is the replica of Vairagya i.e., dispassion. Arjuna is the son of that Kunti, dispassion.
So Oh the son of dispassion, donot loosen your self confidence, wake up declare war against Negative forces.
KathamBheeshmmahamSankhyeDronam cha Madhusudana
Ishubhih pratiyotsyaami poojaarhaavarisoodana 4
Oh Krishna, Bheeshma and Drona are both adorable. Then how can I aim my arrows against them and fight with them.
When we travel in the Aeroplane for the first time, then we get frightened in the beginning. In Train travel we could see the trees etc on the surface of both sides of the Railway tracks. We are not that frightend thinking that we are on the surface of the earth.
The Physical ego gradually annihilates and the Sadhak goes on getting the depth in the Sadhana. This state is what is called killing of Bheeshma i.e., the ego is gradually weakens and self confidence becomes fortified.
The next step is the annihilation of Habits, samskaras, which is called killing of Drona. In this stage Devine Consciousness will be fortified overcoming the Human consciousness. In this state the Human consciousness will not be mitigated fully. The Sadhak will be thinking that he is losing something valuable. Hence he orgues with Madhusudana, the killer of Ignorance, about this doubt.
Bhunjeeyabhogaan Rudhirapradigdhaan 5
It is better to beg alms for living instead of killing these respected elders. Killing them and then enjoying the blood smeared fortunes is the result that is to be endured by us.
Ego and Habits are Gurus, preceptors, for a normal man. If they are mummified then how one can enjoy the fortunes of sense pleasures in case of losing the game of Yoga Sadhana. with non cooperation of the ego and habits. Weak Sadhak will advance this orgument.
Na cahaitadwidmah katarannogareeyo
Stevasthitaah pramukhe Dhaartaraashtraah 6
Over and above whether we will win or they will win—wecannot say. What is meritorious amongst them is unknown to us. We have to kill these Bheeshma, Drona and etc are juxtaposed to us without whom we can not live.
In this Yoga sadhana whether I will be triumphant against these Ego, and Senses, or I will be subdued to them. In this state of ambiguity, is it wise to give them up
Sishyastehamsaadhimaam twaam prapannam 7
Oh Krishna, my consciousness is preoccupied with pity and lack of Soul wisdom. Hence struck with these faults, I am asking You to clear my doubts in regard to the correct path.. Please decidedly advise me what is the best path to be followed by me—. Iam Your disciple. Iam asking for your protection. Order me to choose this path.
In the primary stages of Education, the student can not understand the utility of Education. Hence with his primitive mind set he thinks that these elders are not allowing him to play with unnecesasary objections.
In thie initial stages of Sadhana this sort of doubts naturally arise. Likewise when there is lack of spiritual progress, the Sadhak gets doubt as to which is better—to succumb to sense pleasure or to seek the Kingdom of God. So he seeks the shelter of his Guru—the inner soul.
Nahi prapasyaami mamaapanudyaadya
Raajyam suraanaamapidaadhipatyam 8
In spite of obtaining foeless prosperous kingdom on this earth, possession of ownership over deities of Heaven, I am unable to find out the remedy that can remove my grief which is tormenting my senses.
The body of Man is the replica of Earth. The victory over this Earth means the healthy and diseaseless body. Victory over deities of Heaven means possessing a mind without tormenting thoughts, mental health. In spite of just mentioned things, I am unable to find the medicine that can mitigate my attachment to sense pleasures.
nayotsyaiti govindam uktwaatooshneem babhoovaha 9
Oh King, Having said this to Sree Krishna, ‘’I will not do war’’ declared Arjuna and kept quite.
Hrisheekesa:-- king of senses.
Gudaakesa---the one who defeated sleep.
Parantapa---the scorcherer of enemies.
The Sadhak who is not completely victorious in his Sadhana, recognizes his Guru preceptor as the pure mind. Then he expresses his inability to do further Sadhana to this and kept quite with alarm.
This is the state of a sadhak who progressed upto certain extent and is not developing further.
Tamuvaacha Hrisheekesah prahasanniva bhaarata
Senayorubhayormadhye viseedantamidamvachah 10
O King Dhritarashtra, having seen the wailing Arjuna between the two armies, Shree Krishna appeared to be smiling, spoke thus:
Seing the student crying because of his inability to solve the Mathematical problem, the Teacher shall smile. Likewise, a Sadhak who fixes his gaze in Kootastha and cries because of the obstruction of negative forces within him. He seeks the help of Inner soul/Sadguru.
Sri Bhagavan uvaacha:--

Aakarshayati Krishna— the one who attracts.
Sri Bhagavaan said:--
Oh Arjuna, you are grieved about those who are illeligible. Over and above you are applying logic. People of wisdom shall not cry for both, the deceased and living.
Senses, Habits, Desires, Sense pleasures are existing at present. By and by they die down in Sadhana. The Sadhak should not bother about their existence or annihilation. It is essential to annihilate them for entering into Kingdom of God. natwevaaham jaatunaasam natwam neme janaadhipaah
Nachaiva nabhavishyaama sarvevayamatah parah 12
Oh, Arjun, I, You and these kings were there in the past, are there in the present and shall be there in future.
Dehinosmin yathaa dehe kaumaaram youvanam jaraa
Tathaa dehaantarapraaptih dheerastatra na muhyati 13
The Jeeva(self or embodied soul) has to pass through Childhood, youth, and old age. It is natural. Similarly the Jeeva passes into another body after death. So wise men should not grieve for this.
The explanation for the above three verses:
The deeds of senses are not real and eternal. The Sadhak feels that he is extending an intelligent logic. In fact he is displaying his ignorance.
As the Sadhak advances in his Yoga Sadhana he will gradually realizes the unimportance, unreality and impermanency of the senses and their deeds and their inability to do anything to the real and eternal Kingdom of God. they simply die down.
The kings i.e., the Senses, and their kingdoms i.e., impermanent Sense pleasures do exist as long as this Creation exists.. They exist withn the body itself but not elsewhere.
Energy is eternal. It can neither be created nor canbe destroyed. Only one form of Energy can be transformed into another form of Energy. That is why we see different forms of Energy or Energy in different forms. Everything is Energy configuration only. We are all the forms of Energy only not the bodies. Our Race is called MAANAVA in Sanskrit. Maa means NOT. Nava menas NEW. So we were existing in the Past(Bhoota), we are existing in the Present(Vartamaan) and we will be existing in Future(Bhavishyat). These bodies are not eternal in the Creation sense. So it is meaningless to get agitated about death.
Maatraasparsaastu kaunteya seetoshnasukhadukkhadaah
Aagamaapaayinonityaastaam sthitikshaswabhaarata 14
Oh son of kunti, the senses have objects like Sound, Touch etc.. Heat and cold are Ideas. These are produced due to the contact of the senses with their objects resulting in causing sometimes pleasure and sometimes displeasure. They are limited by a beginning and an end. So endure them with patience.
Yamhi navyathayantye tepurusham purusharshabha
Samadukkhasukham dheeram somritatwaayakalpate 15
Oh, the greatest amongst men(Arjuna), those who are not perturbed by the contacts of the senses and their objects, he who is having equanimity of happiness and unhappiness , is courageous and entitled for liberation.
Naasate vidyatebhaavo naabhaavo vidyate satah
Ubhayorapidrishtonta stwanayo statwa darsibhih 16
Physical, subtle and Idea are the three bodies of the Man. Fall of the of The Physical body is called death we suppose even though the other two bodies along with the Karma and Soul still exist. The Physical body is unreal, and had decay. They have no existence of their own. No dearth for Soul which is real. The reality of both i.e., three bodies and pure soul is explicitly known to Men with pure wisdom
We have to understand the matter in two ways.
1) ANULOMAPADDHATI.:-- To see the matter as Energy unchangeable Parabrahman. This is called This is the correct way. We should go within to draw back the outgoing energy and get it united with Parabrahman at the end.
VILOMAPADDHATI:-- To see God as always changeable creation. This is not the correct way. In this, we get Energy from God and express it out/without by spending through Senses. This will lead us to be absorbed in ignorance by and by.
TAT TWAM GNAANAM :-- That(Parabrahman) is You only. This Wisdom is called Tatwagnaanam.

He Arjun, the whole Universe is pervaded by Parabrahman. That Parabrahman is eternal and undestructable. Know this. No one can destroy the undestructable.
Anaasinoprameyasya tasmaadyudhyaswa Bhaarata 18
He Bharaata, Soul is real, imperishable, immutable and limitless. Only its three bodies i.e., Physical, Subtle and Idea, are perishable. Soul who is the indweller is eternal. Shed this grief about self. Get up and do war.
Bhaarata—effulgence. The illumined Sadhak due to Sadhana. Here War means Sadhana meant for defeating enemies, within and without.
Enam vetti hantaaram yaschainam manyate hatam

He who feels the self as the slayer; he who deems that it can be slain; neither of these knows the truth. The self does not kill, nor is it killed.
Najaayate mriyate vaa kadaachit naayam
Bhootwaa bhavitaavaa nabhooyah

This self is never born nor does it ever perish, nor was it having existence in the past and will exist anew. It was born earlier and as such it has to die now. The self is not having birth and death. Even if the body is killed it cannot be slained. It is birthless and deathless.

Torn clothes are removed and new clothes are worn by us. Likewise the self also is shedding its old and dilapidated body and wearing other new bodies.
Nainam chindanti sastraani nainam dahati paavakah

This self cannot be destroyed by any weapon. Fire cannot burn it. Water cannot moisten it. Air cannot make it dry.
Man has three bodies.
Physical(Sthoola), Subtle(Sookshma) & Idea(Karana)
Idea body has 43 initial feelings.
19 amongst them pertain to Subtle body. They are untreated Five Karmendriyas(Action organs), Five Gnanendriyas(Sense organs), Five Pranas(Airs), and Mano(Wavering mind), Buddhi(discriminating Intellect), Chitta(Sphere of thinking) and Ahamkaar(Ego), called Antahkarana.
24 ideas pertain to Physical(Sthoola) body. They are:--
Treated Five Gnanendriyas(Sense organs), Five Pranas(Airs), Five Tanmatras(Forces) and Mano(Wavering mind), Buddhi(discriminating Intellect), Chitta(Sphere of thinking) and Ahamkaar(Ego), called Antahkarana.
If water is frozen then it becomes Ice. Likewise Physical Body is nothing but solidified vibrating force only.
The vibrations of energy and mind is subtle body. The pure vibratory Cosmic Energy is Idea Body.
Physical Body is Food depandant,
Subtle body is dependant on Cosmic Energy, will power and Thinking magnitudes, and
Idea body is dependant on Pure wisdom and beatitude.
When a product comes out of a factory, it produces sound initially. Likewise when Creation is manifested out of Maya, Cosmic Sound i.e.,
OM is produced.
OM is the combination of
Akaar, Ukaar and Makaar.
The macro Physical, Subtle and Idea worlds constitutes this Universe which is replica of OMKAR only.
This self cannot be pierced into pieces, cannot be scorched, cannot be moistned and cannot be dried up. HE is eternal, all permeating, immovable, ever calm and ever existing.
Every living being has six changes. They are:--
Birth, existance, growth, evolution, ossification and dilapidation.
Every man has six traits. They are:--
Appetite, Thrrst, grief, attachment, oldage and death.
Avyaktoyam achintyoyam avikaaryoyam uchyate

This Self is described as not tangible to Senses, cannot come into the grip of thinking, unchangeable. Perceiving thus, you are not eligible to grieve.
Athachainam nityajaatam nityamvaa manyasemritam
Tathaapitwam mahaabaaho naivam
He Arjun, even if you think that this Soul alongwith Body is incessantly to be born and to die, then even in that state also you should not grieve for it.
If the Sadhak is still afraid of body problems, diseases and death, that means he is still not advanced in his Sadhana.
The Sadhak who obtains Samadhi, the union with Parabrahman, perceives that he is omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient.
Even though Soul is said to be steady, outwardly it appears as though it is manifested in each and every human being.
We dream as though we fought and killed ten tigers with bare hands. When we come out of the sleep then we find ourselves lying calmly on the cot.
Likewise the dream of Soul is this body. In deep meditation and in deep sleep as well, the Soul will remain in its steady state.

KARMA is of three types. They are: Sanchita, Prarabdha and Agaami.
Sanchita Karma: As one cannot spendthe whole harvest in a day. He keeps his Harvest in a granary which will be utilized later. Likewise the deeds/acts we do invite Good or Bad Karma. They will go on accumulating birth after birth that has/have to be experiencd later. Such accumulated Karma is called Sanchita Karma,
Prarabdha Karma: we bring some Karma from the accumulated Sanchita for spending for the present. This is called Prarabdha Karma. The amount mentioned in the Bank cheque given to somebody cannot be altered by anybody except the giver that too before making it into cash. Likewise this Prarabdha Karma can be altered as good or bad by the experiencer only.
Aagaami Karma: The karma we do in the present, good or bad, will be accumulated to be in use for future.
In the syllogism of God, one has to experience Good and Bad separately later.
One has to completely finish his these three Karmas, till then he will be rotated through the cycle of Birth and Death. One has to cross Physical, Subtle, amd Idea bodies thro Kriya Yoga Sadhana. Till then he has to undergo pleasure and displeasure. This is possible only in Nirvikalpa Samadhi or Maha Samadhi.
To shed Physical body is called Physical death. Physical death means to take birth in Subtle world. The Subtle death means to take birth in Physical world. Till the annihilation of Ignorance, one has to shuttle between Physical and Subtle worlds and viceversa. It is inevitable.

If all these colours of the Triangle is equally predominant the the consciousness of Yogi is in equanimous state. Yogi should incessantly make efforts to obtain this equanimous state.

The ones whose minds are filled with sense pleasures, the small ones that are interested to get Heaven and nothing else, that entagles the people into birth and Karma, or such results, that contains several acts and deeds in order to obtain mundane physical sense pleasures, useless words that are being spoken, the people occupied with that mind sets, the people trusting those words and then opting for enjoyment of senses like eye, ear etc, such people will not have determined one pointed mind of concentration towards Parabrahman i.e., Samadhi(unision with God)
Rigveda is the first amongst Four Vedas. The other three Vedas, Yajurveda, Saamaveda, and Atharvaveda, came out of this.
Three things are very important in Vedas. They are:

2)Braahmanas: it is like a flower. Yagna(Sacrifice) with hymns. To perform Yagna in accordance with Hymns.

Vedas teach us to start with worshipping the Nature and its physical forces, and ends with unision with God, the almighty. This is taught in degrees. The physical, Mental , and spiritual evolution of Man into God is taught gradually by Vedas.

The concentration of student should be on studies only and not on anything else. He should not keep in mind about getting a job in future as a result for his studies. Likewise the gaze of Sadhak should be fixed in Kootastha only and do Sadhana with intensity and longevity without contemplating for any result.

Mind only sees, tastes, talks, smells, and thinks. Mind is the main instrument behind everything. Mind has to be conjoined with life force to get any work done.
If the mind of Sadhak is combined with the life force on Mooladharachakra (Prithvee tatwa) then smell can be grasped. Then as per the choice of
ividuls one will have likings for
cosmetic smells, and food aromas etc. ind
If the mind of Sadhak is combined with the life force on Swadhistaanachakra (Jalatatwa) then one will have likings or attachments for tastes.
If the mind of Sadhak is combined with the life force on Manipurachakra (Agnitatwa) then one will have likings or attachments for panoramic things like cinema etc.
If the mind of Sadhak is combined with the life force on Anaahatachakra (Vayutatwa) then one will have likings or attachments for women etc.
If the mind of Sadhak is combined with the life force on Visuddhachakra (Aakaasatatwa) then one will have likings or attachments for songs, Music etc.
A person with diabetes disease should not take sweets even if he wanted. But how to control his weakness? With Pranayama techniques he can withdraw his mind and life force from Swadhistaanachakra so that he can wean his mind away from sweets.
Mooladharachakra represents nose, Swadhistaana represents tongue, Manipura represents eye, Anahata represents skin, and Visuddha represents Ear. .
As long as mind works in tandem with these senses man cannot find the true happiness. When mind is diverted from these senses and made to go within with Kriyayoga sadhana, and getting nearer to God, then man completely realizes what is real happiness and what he has lost.
The string between Physical body and senses is Life force only.
The Sadhak withdraws his mind and life force from the senses in Kriyayoga. Withdrawing means controlling with dispassion.
th is controlled, heart and life force
will be controlled by themselves automatically. The controlled heart shall lead
to controlled senses. It is like a
Mathematical equation. brea
Breath should not be controlled with unscientific methods. The Kriyayoga techniques of controlling the breath have to be learnt in person from a Sadguru, the illumined one.
To control mind through mental meditation shall take quite a long time. Kriyayoga is an Aeroplane way of controlling
and hence mind. This lead to make the mind steady and help the sadhak to go
within quickly. brea
Kidneys: They remove/decant the toxins and chemicals from the impure blood.
Heart: This will pump the blood with Oxygen through out the body. It will serve blood with Oxygen to all the nerves in the body. In return path it will take the Oxygenless blood. The Oxygenless blood will be sent to lungs for Oxygen. Here in lungs the Carbon dioxide is removed and Oxygen is added. This oxygen added blood is returned to Heart again.
Lungs: They will absorb the
th in and removes the Carbon dioxide.
Taking the brea breath in and removing the Carbon
dioxide is called breathing in and thing out. brea
To control mind 1) Reducing of Carbon dioxide in the blood by taking more and more fruits as food substitue and 2) Regular kriyayoga Practice, are required.
With the above things, blood gets purified and the need of sending carbonized blood to Heart will be lessened. Hence the burden of Heart will be lessened. Gradually the heart becomes steady and gets rest. Life force will be withdrawn from the senses. The mind in the cerebellum will not get any signals. Mind becomes steady and concentrates on God.
Like tortoise, the Sadhak will with draw the senses that help the mind.
When we do not accept these objects of senses physically by suppressing them with fasts etc., they are kept away for a while, but we are not losing their longing permanently. If the man who beholds the God, is freed for ever from their clutches.
Man should come out of the longing for sense objects not only physically but also mentally. If you suppress your desires then they will boomerang with renewed vigour like a suppressed spring. If a man fasts for one or two days bracingly, then he will have more longing for food just by the utterance of the word ’food’.
IndriyaaniPramaatheeniHaranti PrasabhamManah 60
He Kaunteya(son of Kunti), Senses are very strong in nature. They will pull the man forcibly away from yoga Sadhana with which he is making tremendous efforts to go within.
Just wearing saffron clothes and being a celibate merely cannot escape from the attraction of the senses. Bacteria will not cause diseases at once. There will be some incubation period. It will attack when man becomes weak. Likewise if the Sadhana is weakened then the senses will attack the mind of Sadhak.
So the Sadhak should make the senses as his slave, be steady minded, and be absorbed in Soul only with body and mind. He whose senses are subdued or tamed, his
only is pure and steady. wis
When man broods about the objects of senses then he will have attachment for those objects. This attachment will lead to craving. This craving leads to desires. Unfulfilment of desires lead to anger. Anger leads to ignorance. Ignorance leads to loss of memory or forgetfulness. This loss of memory leads to decay of discriminating intellect. This decay of leads to annihilation.
Here annihilation means destroying spirituality.
The man of detatchment shall be able to act with senses and and sense related objects with self control, and shall remain in pure mind in spite of experiencing them, unattached.
With pure mind and blissful soul, he will overcome all the sorrows. For such a blissful man, the attainment of steadiness in God is obtained speedily.
The man will not get pure intellect without sense control and steady mind. Without the establishment of mind in the self, man will not have peace and tranquility. Without peace there is no happiness.
A boat in the waters is carried away from the assigned course to some other undesired paths by strong opposite winds. Likewise the discrimination of man will get damaged as per the path followed by mind in accordance with the senses.
He Arjun, he who will not employ the senses on sense objects and control them in all ways, his
dom is steady. wis
That which is night or slumber to those who are unable to behold Parabrahman is day or wakefulness to the men of self-mastery. Ordinary people are awake in the objects of senses whereas this is night to the yogi who perceives
Parabrahman. Yogi cannot perceive
the objects of senses.
The brimful Ocean remains unmoved in spite of water entering and filling up fully. Likewise all the sense pleasures will get eradicated and shall make the blissful yogi unmoved. Such a Yogi will get peace and not the man who lusts after desires.
The man who relinquishes all desires and sense pleasures, exists without any attachment and egoless shall get peace and tranquility.

if you consider that pure wisdom is superior to Karma, then why you are
entangling me in this ferocious war?
Karma here implies Nishkaamakarma Yoga which means doing karma without expecting results.
Karma, Bhakti, Dhyaana, and Gnaana are not independent yogas. They are interdependent. The knowledge gained from books has to be experienced, then only that knowledge is meaningful and will be fruitified. To gain that experience, war of Meditation is to be practiced.
Merely reading the scriptures shall not lead us anywhere and shall not unite us with God. One should eat Banana or Mango. Reading the description of these fruits will not suffice to know the taste.
you are confusing my intellect with conflicting speeches. Please let me know
which one is better and safer for me, Karma yoga or Gnaanayoga, definitely.
Dhyana, Meditation, is Nishkaamakarma. With this one will get dedication, Bhakti. Personification of Dedication is Dhyana i.e., one pointedness. The experience of this Dhyana is Gnana or Pure wisdom.
Sri Bhagavan Uvaacha:--
Sri Bhagavan said:-
Anagha means Sinless. BrahmaVidya illuminates.in sinless Antahkarana.
Oh sinless Arjun, on the onset of creation, I have two ways of salvation was given by me. 1)Divine union through wisdom for saankhyas, and 2) Dhyana or Meditation i.e., Nishkaama Karmayoga for Yogis.
Without doing Karma or work, one will not gain knowledge.
How to make Idlis, a south Indian cuisine, has to be gained practically through the ones who knows it, but not by reading books. Likewise wisdom is gained by doing Meditation, Dhyana Karma.
Today if you are able to tell 17x3=51 without referring any book of tables is because of your hardwork of byhearting tables in your Primary classes. In our childhood perception will be less but memory power will be more. When we grow up memory power will be less and perception will be more.
Without doing Karma, actions, man will not attain the actionless state of soul wisdom. Merely relinquishing Karma, no one can attain liberated state.
35 or 40 years of continuous Government service shall make you eligible to get pension. Then only one will be able to eat without doing any service.
So one should do Karma and then sacrifice. Without Karma Sacrifice is useless. Even worldly knowledge i.e., commom sense also cannot be attained without doing Karma. Then how pure wisdom can be got without Meditation. Meditation is called Dhyana Karma.
No one on this earth can keep quite without doing Karma even for a while. Everyone does Karma compulsarly by nature.
The whole universe is made of amd working with three qualities, Satwa, Rajo, and Tamo. Soul is beyond Creation.
If a Golden ring falls in a mud block it will be besmeared with mud. Likewise when soul is encompassed in Mind, Life Force, and Body, it will be smeared with Ego. It appears as though it is also yielded to Physical, Mental, and Spiritual states.
If the mud is cleansed then the Golden ring shines with its original sheen. Remember the mud is not penetrating into the atoms of Golden ring here. Similarly the Mala, vikhepana, and Avarana Faults cannot penetrate into Soul. Once they are removed the soul will illuminates with its original effulgence.
Even the completely realized yogi also trains the people with Kriyayoga who are longing for it. He does it for the sake of doing Nishkaamakarma but this is Karma only. So no one keeps quite without doing Karma. Nobody can be an idler forever for all the times.
He who forcibly suppresses his senses and shall be thinking always about the objects of the senses, is a hypocrite.
If one says that I will achieve eternal beatitude with Sadhana and then relinquishes it in the middle for the sake of trivial sense pleasures, then he is an hypocrite only. To wear saffron robes and behaving like a Sage is the work of hypocrite only. Evil thoughts gradually leads to evil works.
So mind has to be controlled gradually with the regular practice of Kriyayoga. A suppressed spring t strikes the face with renewed strength once it is released. Similarly evil thoughts will impregnate the mind if the Sadhana is given up in the middle.
The one who has reached a state of Paramahamsa with his Sadhana may or may not do Sadhana. The union with God or attaining Nirvikalpa Samadhi state is the state of Paramahansa. He is like pensioner getting beatitude pension for God.
He Arjun, he who controls his senses with the control of mind, and does Karma without expecting results in the least, that Yogi is Great.
Oh Srjun, you do the Karma as ordained by Veda Sastras, the scriptures. It is wiser to do Karma than to become an idler otherwise even small works of body needs like calls of nature are difficult to do later.
Sadhak has to do Kriyayoga Sadhana as ordained by scriptures. One may not become an accomplished Master of Kriya yoga practice. It is ok. In Sadhana, the body will be steady, stable and immovable like a Rock. That does not mean that he has sacrificed Karma or not doing any Karma. Sadhak will be working intensely with mind during Meditation. He withdraws his mind from senses and directs his subtle forces inwardly to unite with God. This is real Karma yoga.
He, Arjun, normal people are bound by acts of mundane pleasures than in God related Kriya yoga karma or the Karmas that are helpful to the general public. So you follow those Karmas for the sake of them without expecting results.
In the beginning of Creation, Brahma has created these yagnas alongwith people, and said: ‘You get multiplied with these Yagnas, now these yagnas will fulfil your desires.’
In yagnas Brahma will always be there internally.
This is the Chain.
Parabrahman has made creation consisting of men out of his Consciousness. Having been created with my inspiration, multiply with this inspiration. This is what HE has ordained.
Devaanbhaavayataanena te devaabhaavayantuvah
With this Yagnas you propitiate the Devas, the celestial beings. They in turn will satisfy you with rains etc. This way you and Devas mutually satisfy each other by which you get great benefits. .
Yogadhyaana is a superior Yagna. In this Yagna, the Sadhak will get united with several subtle forces i.e., divine Souls. They are the representatives of Parabrahman. Parabrahman will be organizing the universe through them. So for the mutual propitiation, Meditation is beneficial.
These planets and stars align themselves according to our Karma at the time of Birth.
Devas, astral beings, shall provide the required fortunes after getting satisfied with the yagnas performed by the men. Having got the benefits, men should dedicate them before enjoing them lest they will be considered as thieves.
Abhishekam and Panchaamritasnaanam:
Earth, water, Fire, Air, and space/Ether are the Panchabhootaas(Five Electricities). This Creation is made up of with these five. Human body is also made up of with these five electricities.
Aslong as these Creation exists these Panchabhootas shall exist. So they are five nectars, Pancha Amritas. Oh God, YOU have provided this Creation consisting of these five electricities. They are not above YOU. We dedicate these to YOU. To express this conception we dedicate water to him. Water represents one of the Pancha Amritas and it is easy to dedicate.
Namaskar is a symbol of respect in which both the palms are joined. By joining both the palms there will not be any space left between them. This is to say, ‘nothing is mine, everything is yours.’. We pay our respects to God by doing Namaskar and sprinkle water on left, right, above and below, back and front, of our body. This is called Panchamrita Snanam, a Hindu way of showing respect to God.
Ramayati iti Raamah which means HE who will make us happy with great effulgence.
Paaduka means foot wear made with wood. This Paaduka represents Moolaadharachakra. This chakra represents Prithveetatwa(Earth—smell). To dedicate this Prithveetatwa to God as a beginning of starting Sadhana by Bharata, brother of Rama, here Sadhaka, is SriRama Paduka Pattabhishekam. Here Patta means Merudanda, Spinal Cord. Abhishekam means Dedication.
Sri means sacred, and Rama means beholding Great Effulgence, SriRama means beholding sacred Great Effulgence.
Dedicating all the five electricities in the Merudanda, Spinal Cord, to God for the above ultimate goal, is SriRamaPattabhishekam.
If you do
Om chanting in Chakras with dedication, then the subtle
forces in those chakras shall aid the Kriyayoga Sadhana.
With the practice of KriyaYoga Sadhana, the outgoing life force from the Indriyas will not be wasted. All those outgoing forces will be directed back to Cerebrum through the Spinal Cord. Then the body of the Sadhak and the atoms in the cerebrum shall become filled with electromagnetic Energy and then the atoms will be transformed into Spiritual Elixir.
Even for a small development of the Atoms in the cerebrum, 12 years of Healthy life is required. For complete transformation 10 lakhs years of Healthy life is required. Kriyayoga will make it easy for us.
The left overs of the fire offerings in Yagna are eaten by the Saints and they are freed from all sins. Those who make food only for the good of themselves shall eat sin only.
Doing Kriyayoga sadhana(Yagna) and then eating food is the work of men of virtue.
Life force is the devine force for Physical body.
In this state where Mental intelligence force and the outgoing life force, both are integrated with physical matter, the physical lifetrons shall depend upon and food and breath.
This mental intelligent life force when manifested as vibratory force in the Physical body, then it will be making continuous efforts to bring metamorphosis in the Physical lifetrons which is important.
Physical body depends upon food and
for its existence. Till the final liberation the cycle of births and deaths are
Life force mentally thrusting its Soul message to lifetrons and conveying liberation as the psalm of life. However amount of healthy principles we follow scrupulously, death is inevitable.
The Great souls like Mahavatar Babaji who depend on only Cosmic Consciousness can live in the Physical body house with the strength of Yogic Force. They will be transforming their physical body frequently and remain eternally youthful.
Creatures are manifested from food. Food begotten from Rains, rains from Yagna, Yagna from Good Karma. This good karma is caused by Scriptures. This Scriptures came out of ParaBrahman. You should know that all pervasive Brahma is ever present in the Yagna.
Living beings require Food for nourishment. This will be got from the rains. The source for matter is Agni and its effulgence, manifested from ParaBrahman only. This Prakaas i.e., energy is solidified and precipitates as rain. Paramatma means Cosmic Consciousness. Creation is Yagna. So the source for this Yagna is this Cosmic Consciousness only.
Moola Prakriti is the one that is not yet visible to the naked eyes. In accordance with individual Karma, as per the directions of Parabrahman, intelligent
OM vibration that are responsiblr for Creation are
generated. This is called Moola Prakriti or source nature.
Cosmic Consciousness is inherent in Paramatma. MoolaPrakriti is with many faceted forms, configurations, and formations of Shrishti, Creation, format is delivered out of this.
Parabrahman is to be perceived in two ways. 1)Cosmic Consciousness, and 2)

The Blood will take 27(Asterics or stars) days to become useful blood..
This blood takes 41(Mantrasiddhi) days to transform into flesh.
Flesh takes 52 (Sanskrit Alphabets)days to transform into nerves..
Nerves take 64 (Types of Arts) days to transform into Bones. Bones take 84 (Types of living veings 84 lakhs) days to transform into Bone marrow..
Bone marrow take 96 (This body is made of 96 elements or ideas as per SankhyaSastra) days to transform into Semen.
Semen takes 108 (Hindu Ashtottara satanaamaavali) days to transform into Ojahsakti.
With Kriyayoga Sadhana the human consciousness will be united with

through spinal cord.
He who is contented by playing through Soul, propitiating in self only, and becoming happy in Self only, then there is nothing that is to be done by such a man of soul wisdom.

For such a man of

So, without expecting any results, you do your assigned karma dexterously. Man will gradually gets liberated by executing
kamakarma. . Nish
Life force and Mind are the tools for Physical Karma. Cleanliness, required food and worldly behaviour is Physical Karma. Meditation does not reqire Mind and life force. In fact they have to be withdrawn. Sadhak should continue to do his sadhana without expecting any fruits.
King Janaka and several others got liberated with this
kamakarma. You must do karma at least to

Here Karma means Kriyayoga Sadhana. People will get motivated and start doing Kriyayoga.
Whatever Karma is followed by a distinguished people, others will follow that. The ideal of Great people will be motivation for others and followed by them.
The Sadhak who got united with Parabrahman through the medium of his Sadhana will become
Parabrahman only. If you get the degree of Doctor, then

Books of Medicine and narrates the paragraphs. Likewise after getting united
with Paramatma, no need of doing Sadhana but

Influenced by qualities of Nature, people are completely attached and are more and more interested in those respective qualities and Karmas. Such half knowledged, dull headed and ignorant people should not be made to oscilate by men of

Sri Bhagavan said:-
Desire is caused by Rajo(neutral) Guna. This will transform into Anger. Desire is unsatiated however amount it maight be experienced. The most dangerous one it is. For the unlimited acts of Karma, desire is is the root cause. Know that, for liberation this desire is the enemy.

This way, know that Soul is subtler, stronger, and superior than Buddhi. After knowing, annihilate mind, senses, and Body with Buddhi. And then destroy incorrigible enemy, the Desire.
If the Sadhak does kriyayoga sadhana by fixing his gaze in kootastha with

Sri Bhagavan uvaacha:--
Imam vivaswateyogam Proktavaanahamavyayam
Vivaswaan Manavepraaha Manurikshwaakavebraveet 1
Sri Bhagavan said:-
I have said this eternal and truthful yoga to Sun. Sun has said this to Vaiswata Manu. Vaivaswat Manu has preached this to Ikshwaaku.
When a sadhak is settled in Yoga, then he will behold 3rd eye in Kootastha, the place between Eyebrows un the fore head. He will hear the auspicious sound of OM.
Sound travels at a speed of 344 meters per second at 220.
Light travels at a speed of 3x108 meters per second.
The first manifestation of
Parabrahman is His effulgence i.e., Cosmic
Consciousness. This is Omnipotent. This is
called Soorya, Sun. This 3rd eye appears in Kootastha when the
Sadhak concentrates his human consciousness and dual electricities in his two
eyes with intense meditation. This is
called Vyashtaatma( ividual
Soul) or Atma Soorya, Sun. The omnipotent ind Cosmic
Consciousness also he will behold as a siver 5pointed star in 3rd
From this 3rd eye only, the omnipotent
shall enter into nerve centres and nerves through Chakras, from there to body, and transforms into Human
This human consciousness will be entangled with Chitta(feelings), Ahamkar(Ego), Man(wavering mind), and Buddhi(discriminating intelligence).
The human consciousness will perform its function in four different ways:
1) performing the work within the frame work of Senses, 2) performing the functions with determination, integrating with Buddhi(Intellect), 3) manifesting desire with the association of senses, and4) to give up or move away from Parabrahman with the wrong conception of Maya, delusion, as real.
The limited human consciousness in the Physical Antahkarana cannot grasp unlimited Cosmic Consciousness. It is possible with the practice of Kriyayoga sadhana only.
Mind is manifested from Atmasurya, Vyashtaatma. Hence the son of Atma Surya(Soul son) is Karana chetana or Idea mind. So Idea mind is the sun of vaivaswata(Sun). Vaivaswata Manu is Idea mind.
3rd eye in Kootastha is the Gate way to transform the Cosmic Consciousness into human consciousness and life force.
3rd eye is the source for the manifestation of both the Idea(Karana) and Subtle(sookshma) bodies.
The 3rd eye of Idea body is the source for 3rd eye of Subtle body.
Ideabody will have its own Idea spinal cord, and Subtle body will have its own subtle spinalcord.
Sushumna subtle nadi pertains to subtle body spinal cord.
Vajra in Sushumna, chitri in Vajra, and Brahmanadi in Chitri pertain to Idea spinal cord.
The Cosmic Consciousness and Cosmic energy, both will initially enter into 3rd eye of Idea body, and from there into Idea spinal cord as Idea Consciousness and Idea life force. From Idea spinal cord they will enter into subtle body 3rd eye and from there into Subtle Spinal cord. Here they will transform into subtle consciousness and subtle life foce.
This subtle body 3rd is called ‘Ikshwaaku.’ Iksh means eye.
Manu means Ikshwaaku, the son of Idea consciousness.
Senses of Physical body is not the source of ego for Ikshwaaku state. The ego in Ikshwaku state from Soul. This comes from Soul as such it is called Sahajaavabodhana or Intuition.
The Cosmic Consciousness and Cosmic energy, both will enter into spinal cord of Physical body through the spinal cord of subtle body as Human Consciousness and life force. From there they will enter into Physical senses having sense objects which work in coordination/conjunction with Karmendriyas, organs of Action. This state of Physical and karmendriyas is called Rajarshi state. In that Rajarshi state, man will forget Yoga Sadhana and does not do sadhana.
He Arjun, this way the hereditary

In Sanskrit Rahasyam means Kriyayoga is a serious business but not humorous one. People should not imagine that the Kriyayogi is simply sitting by closing his eyes without doing any work. Kriyayoga is the medium by which the individual soul gets united with Spirit. It is eternal and truthful Rajayoga. This Rajayoga is Kriyayoga.

Pure soul is nothing but a ray of Spirit only. As such Spirit and Soul are inseperable from each other. Fire and its rays, Ocean and its waves are not two different things.
Pure soul, Nature, Mind, and body are combinely called Jeeva. God is Truth, bliss, and beauty. He is Sat, Chit, Ananda Swaroopa. He is
Bhaati, and Priyam. If name and Form are
added to God, then He is Jeeva. Asti Parabrahman is
nameless and formless.
Sadhak will see the effulgence initially in his Sadhana. Gradually he enjoys/experiences Cosmic Consciousness. The yogi who is united with
in his Sadhana only can understand the Natures of Physical, Subtle, and Idea.
Till such time to understand Srikrishna as Parabrahman
is an uphill task.

SriBhagavan said thus:
The scorcherer of foes, he Arjun, So many births have been elapsed for you and me. I am aware of your births but you are not aware of my births.
All businesses are burnt in Sadhana.
Srikrishna is Yogi amongst Yogis. Such Yogis will have incessant and unbreakable bondage with Parabrahman. They only will have the consciousness/knowledge of past and present births. The yogi who has not yet reached this level cannot have this consciousness. One can see the past births with 3rd eye.
In fact, not to have the knowledge of past births is a boon. For example, a couple in this birth have come to know that they were brother and sister in their past birth. Can they live happily now?
Iam birthless, deathless, lord of all living and non living beings, and movable and immovable things. In spite of that I am taking birth with my own nature. There is no birth and death, beginning and ending for
Cosmic Consciousness. Nature, Maya, is a part of Parabrahman.

There is a mythological story in Hindu Bhagavata. One elephant enters a river. Its legs were caught by a crocodile. It prays Lord Vishnu for Help. Hearing its prayers
Vishnu sends his
weapon Sudarshan Chakra to kill the Crocodile and gets the elephant freed from
the clutches of Crocodile.
Its inner meaning is given below:
Gaja=Elephant. Ga alphabet in Sanskrit represents Pure wisdom. Ja= Intelligence. So Gaja means the one with Pure intelligence. Gaja+
most superior amongst the senses i.e., Mind. So Mind is the most superior
amongst the senses. Moksham=liberation.
Crocodile represents mundane existence. Sudarshan Charam= thousand
petalled Sahasrarachakra. Ind
The liberation of Mind from mundane existence with Kriyayoga Sadhana is Gajendramoksham. Then the sadhak beholds the Sahasrarachakra which will annihilate all bondages.
There is another mythological story in Hindu Srimadbhagavat. In this story
takes into a form of Half man and half lion called Narasimhaavatara, and kills a ferocious demon called
Hiranyakasipu with HIS paws.
Oh, man, you are not man, in reality you are a courageous lion, man of divinity. Man, like a courageous lion, should make lion’s effort to do the practice of Kriyayoga sadhana so as to come out of his egoistic nature is the essence of this story.
Hiranyakshu throws the Earth into water.
In this Vishnu takes into a form of Pig called Varaahaavatara, lifts the earth with his two wisdom teeth, kills another ferocious demon called Hiranyaakshu with his nails.
Man is the replica of Earth. Water represents Family. Man will have two
teeth representing dom.
He man, don’t submerge into water i.e., Samasar, Family. Get united with
with Kriyayoga Sadhana. Don’t submerge in family. Come out of it with dom. wis
The annihilation of Brahmagrandi that pertains to Physical body is the concept of killing Hiranyakasipu and Hiranyaaksha demons. Killing of ego is very important in Sadhana.
Ravana Kumbhakarna Vadha:
In Ramayana, the sacred Hindu epic, two most coveted enemies viz., ego and desire are killed. These enemies of Sadhak are Ravana and KumbhaKarna, the most ferocious demons.
Ravana brings forcibly the wife of Rama due to lust. His younger brother Kumbhakarna agrees to help him in this sinful deed.
takes the Avatar of Sri Rama and kills both the demons.
The annihilation of Rudragrandi that pertains to subtle body is the concept of killing Ravana and KumbhaKarna demons, the epitomes of ego and lust.
dha: Dantavaktra Va
Vishnu in the form of Srikrishna kills two more demons,
Sisupala and Dantavaktra.
These two demons represents the residual childish ego in the Sadhak.
Sisu = Child, Danta = dentition time for small children.
The annihilation of Vishnugrandi that pertains to Idea body is the concept of killing Sisupala and
demons, the epitomes of the residual childish ego in the Sadhak.

However evil minded the children may be, the parents always wanted them to be transformed into good souls and will be giving required good councelling. If those children follow the councelling of elders and become good citizens, it is ok, otherwise the parents will leave them to their fate but not kill them.

kills us for our faults. nev

He Arjun, who understands my Devine incarnation and Karma properly, that Sadhak will not be entangled with this ‘births and deaths’ Cycle and will get into me eternally. Man should come out of this Maya,
and get into his own home i.e., Parabrahman
Giving up Affection, Fear, and Anger, always engrossed and sheltered in me, many beings have been liberated having been sanctified by pure wisdom and attained my form.
In Yoga sadhana if the life force or kundalini life force is directed towards Ida subtle nadi on the left side of in side Merudanda, spinal cord, Sadhak will get Fear and anger. If it is directed towards Pingala subtle nadi on the right side of in side Merudanda, then the Sadhak will get affection and attachment.
Sadhak should do Meditation by fixing his gaze in kootastha while directing his Kundalini life force through the middle of Merudanda i.e., Sushumna only. So doing dhyana, the sadhak will be sanctified with soul
He Arjun, those who serve me in whatever way they like, I will benefit them in the same measure. Men follows my path in each and every manner. All paths of worship lead to me only.

The son of a Prime Minster need not be a Prime Minister, he can be a chaprasi also. The son of an eminent Doctor need not be a Doctor, he can be peon. Colonel, Brigadier etc are not names, they are Designations. They have to be acquired with qualifications, abilities, and experience etc. The caste is like a designation. It has to be acquired. So no one is a Brahmin by birth.
Actions will not touch me. I do not have any longing for Karma. So who knows me like this, will not be bound by Karma.
Every man is devided into 1) Satwa, 2)Satwa-Rajo, 3)Rajo-Tamas, and 4)Tamo, as per his deed and actions. Man does karma as per his Guna, attributes of nature. the man who is anchored to
Parabrahman is beyond Karma. No
karma nor caste can bound him.

Iam not the real doer. I should not have any interest in the results of Karma. Knowing this from the way of God in respect of Karma Theory, several liberation-minded Sadhaks have done the

What is Karma? What is Akarma? Even the learned people are unaware of it properly. I am rendering you now, the knowledge of the one that liberates you.
In spite of doing some sadhana, if the sadhak leaves his sadhana and comes out, and entangles with senses more than the requirement, then he will entertain the same douts, ‘What is Dharma and what is Adharma.’
The actions that are done only for ego satisfaction are Adharma Karma, and those Karmas that are done only for
Parabrahman with dedication and
without any selfish motive are kalled Dharma Karmas.
Karmanyopi Boddhavyam BoddhavyamchaVikarmanah
The awareness of the Karmas as ordained, not ordained, by scriptures,and the Karmas of inaction are to be fully known. The truthfulness of the knowledge of the Karma is very deep and quite difficult.
Parabrahman expresses Himself in the nature in many a different ways. The things in nature sometimes give us satisfaction and sometimes dissatisfaction. They perturb us in many a number of ways.
The karmas that motivate our consciousness to awaken our Kundalini force are Dharma bound and those that make the man slave to Senses are Adharma bound.
We should eat to live but not viceversa. The Karmas that harm us Physically, mentally, and spiritually, are not to be done. They are Adharma Karmas. Smoking, drinking, meat eating, and lust for sex etc., are illustrated as Adharma Karmas.

He who sees Karma(action) in nAkarma(inaction) and vice versa is the most intelligent, meditator, and the follower of Good actions, amongst people.
Life itself is a drama. Playing this drama with

the aspiring devotees for the sake of Paramatma,

The actions of the sadhak whose actions are lacking desires for fruits, and are burnt by

He who is devoid of fruits of Karmas, dwells in incessant contentment, he will not be considered as a doer of modicum of Karmas inspite of doing.
He who is desireless, having controlled senses, not wanting anything, is untouched by karmas, in spite of doing karmas with Body. He will not be tangible by sin.
Samah SiddhaavaSiddhauchaKritwaapiNanibadhyate 22
He who is contented with whatever he got it inadvertently, discarder of dualities like Happyness and misery, not having jealousy, having equanimity in getting and not getting, the fruitfulness and unfruitfulness of the things, cannot be bound by Karma, in spite of doing Karma.
The sadhak should overcome the dualities like happiness and misery, and cold and heat, with patience and endurance.

Not having interest in anything(other than God), freed from attraction and repulsion, desire and anger, always anchored to God, doing Karma for the sake of God, and for the welfare of fellow beings—his whole karma is destroyed and not creating any bondage of ‘births and deaths’ cycle.
The physical things only that we give as Ahootis in a Fire ceremony shall not cause salvation to man. The Ahutis we submit in a Fire ceremony are replicas of senses and their objects. We must sincerely feel that we are dedicating thingts to fire is pre requisite failing which it is a waste. This commom sense is

3) Cow Ghee(clarified butter): It represents Tongue, Taste power, Ruchisakti.
4) Fragrant things: Incense sticks represent Nose, smelling power.
5) Conch shell: It represents Ear, hearing power, sabda sakti.
These things are submitted as a taken of dedication for the purification of senses and the king of senses, mind.
Liberation is possible only with the pure mind. The cow ghee is poured into the fire sacrice as a token of the unification of pure mind with
Flowers are submitted as symbol of withdrawing life force from the senses and the withdrawn life force is submitted to the seven chakras and from there to
The instruments that are required for Fire Sacrifice, the things that are to be put into fire yagna, the fire, the one who does fire yagna, the oblation itself—all are the forms of Parabrahman only. With this one and only one feeling sadhak should do the Yagna. Then he will attain Parabrahman itself.
Some yogis are following Yagnas of worshipping the Devas or deities, some are offering self, as a sacrifice made by the self, in the fire of spirit of alone.
The Sadhak, his Sadhana, and his object of Sadhana, all are the forms of
only. With this feeling the sadhak is getting Samadhi, the ecstatic union with Parabrahman.
If the Sadhak is healthy, then only he can do Sadhana.
So, for health, he should worship Viswa in Micro Physical, Virat in Macro Physical worlds.

Micro Astral, Hiranyagarbha in Macro Astral worlds.. vigo
For going within and pure
he should pray Pragna in Micro Idea, and Eswara in Macro Idea worlds. wis
To come out of Maya the sadhak should worship ‘
OM’ i.e., Maha Prakriti. The prayer should be
: Oh Devine mother, make me united with Parabrahman,
and show me the truth.
To obtain the God in Creation i.e., Kootastha Chaitanya, pray like this: Oh, Sree
Krishna Consciousness, manifest in my Samadhi meditaion.
To get united with
Cosmic Consciousness, pray
like this: Oh, Cosmic Consciousness, manifest, manifest.
Some are offering senses in the fire of inner control, and some are offering the objects of the senses as oblations into fire of senses as oblations.
Dharana, dhyana, and Samadhi together are called samyama which means with sense control, the sadhak should do intense sadhana with steady mind.
There are four types of disciplines. They are:
1)Brahmacharyam(Cellibacy): Vidhyarthi dasa(Student life)
2)Grihastha : Vivaahadasa: (Married life)
3)Vaanaprastham:Sadhanadasa(secluded life), and
4) Sanyaasam:Sat means the only Truth. Nyaasam means the
Search for truth.
Some are offering the objects of senses as oblations into the fire exemplified by self discipline. .
SwadhyagnaanayagnaaschaYatayh samsitavrataah 28
Some are offering money and food amongst the poor as oblations Some are doing Patanjali’s Pranayama techniques of Ashtaanga yoga as Yagna. They are all people of making efforts and self discipline for unision with God.
With the advancement of Sadhana, the sadhak will initially hear the sound of OM. Then he willenter into ShriKrishna Consciousness, the God in Creation. Continuing his Sadhana intensely he will merge with
Parabrahman. He himself will be a witnessee, the
Some are obstructing the path Prana and Apana, the incoming and outgoing life forces. Then they will offer Pranavayu in Apanavayu, Apanavayu in Pranavayu as oblations.
Praana= life force, Yaama= controlling.
The controlling of life force is called Pranayama. Control of

We stepdown the 24000volts electricity into 240v with cascaded step down transformers so as to be useful for us.
River water is brought to us through huge water pipes. Then it will be made to pass through small pipes so that they will be useful to us. Likewise the distorted
Consciousness is transformed into Life Force so that it will be useful for us
in Micro level and the same life force is spread in the whole universe in Macro
level. This life force only is making
this universe existent. This life force is called Paraprakriti,
This life force only is manifested in different ways in this universe as creatures, plants, birds, animals, and mankind. The mechanical power that make the lungs, Heart, liver, and kidneys etc., to function is this life force only.
The Soul in the body is the master, and life force is its servant. The commands of self are executed by life force through the medium of Ego. Life force is intelligent but will not have any spiritual consciousness. Pure soul can survive without life force but the life force cannot survive without Soul.
The matter for all the things in the dream is supplied by the dreamer himself. Likewise the supplier of matter for the dream of Paramatma is Himself only.
If the physical eye is opened then the dream of man will melt away. But the dream of
Paramatma will vanish if
the third in the kootastha is opened with Kriyayoga Meditation by man.
The life force is supplied to all the living beings in a required manner. The life force that is supplied to the man in arequired manner and magnitude is called Chief life force or Mukhya Pranasakti.
This Mukhya Pranasakti enters the embriyo alonwith Jeevatma or self. It will remain with that being till death pertinent to his Karma.
Food will depend upon life force. Apart from this, this chief life force enters from the Universe as a cosmic consciousness into Cerebrum through Medulla oblongata. From there it will be distributed to the remaining Chakras proportionately.
Oxygen will have energy only. The life force will have both Consciousness and Energy. Life force will be available throughout the body. It will be doing different works in different organs/parts of the body and hence it will have different names pertinent to its function.
In the name of Pranavayu, it does Crystallization. Crystallization means manifestation of several functions.
In the name of Apanavayu, it does Elimination. Elimination of all waste products.
In the name of Samanavayu, it does Assimilation. Assimilation means digesting the food and then distributing the proteins required by different organs and helps in production of new cells in place of dead cells.
In the name of Udaanavayu, it does Metabolizing. Hair growth, flesh, and skin requires different cells for nourishment and different equations will be happening for this. This is called Metabolizing.
Praana and Apaana are two important electricities in our body.
Apaana currents will travel from kootastha to to Anus through Agna, Visuddha, Anahata, Manipura, Swadhistaana, and Moolaadhara via spinal cord and from there it goes out. Through the anus. This is not steady and hence make the man slave to senses and sense objects.
The Pranavayu travels from Anus to Kootastha via Mooladhara, Swadhistaana, Manipura, Anahata,
Visuddha, and Agna chakras upto Kootastha. This is
peaceful. It will unite self with Paramatma during sleep and Yogadhyana.
Apana pulls the consciousness of man to worldly things, and Prana pulls it towards
one current pulls without and another pulls within. For Sadhana, going within
is very tial.
This is called making the sadhak ANTARMUKH.
This makes the unision with essen Parabrahman
becomes easier. Making the consciouness
inwards to get united with God is called Kriyayoga.
When Mukhyaprana in the guise of Apanavayu goes out of anus, enrgy will be spent for cells, tandons, tandons, for transmiting the messages to the brain and from the brain to the reqired organ through the sensor and motor nerves, and for mental thinkings etc. In this process several waste products will be left in the blood. Carbon dioxide(CO2) is one such waste product. That impure blood has to be cleansed immediately failing which the physical death occurs. To restore the spent energy and rejuvenation, Mukhyaprana is required
With the pulls of Praana and Apaana, quite opposite in nature, in Spinal cord, the
thing process exists.
When the life force goes up, it will carry life force consisting of Pranavayu into the lungs and there the Carbon dioxide is removed. This is called breathing. To purify the liquid and solid things in the stomach, more time is required. That cleansed/purified energy is pumped into the cells is this life force only. This purified life energy will be reinvigorating the chakras in spinal cord, kootastha, and Cerebrum. The residual energy from the
th is carried to all parts of the body by
the blood. Then Panchapranas(Five airs)
shall be utilizing that life energy in a required fashion. Brea
The physical body consists of Physical spinal cord, Physical brain, and Physical places for chakras.
Subtle body has subtle spinal cord, subtle brain, subtle locations for chakras,and subtle nervous system.
Subtle nerves are called sookshmanadis. Nerve is a physical term which is tangible, and subtle i.e., sookshmanadis are not tangible.
The energy needed for Panchakarmendriyas, and Pancha Gnanendriyas of the physical body is supplied by Subtle body. Subtle body supplies the required energy to Panchapranas through subtle nadis. The sushumna’s outer effulgence coverage of lifetrons, seven chakras, the lifetrons of subtlenadis of panchabhootas, are controlled by subtle body.
Sushumna subtle nadi spreads from mooladharachakra to Sahasraarachakra adjacent to Brahmarandhra of Cerebrum.
The four rows of sympatathetic nervous system existing on either side of Physical spinal cord resembles subtle spinal cord. Ida, pingala, and the Sushumna subtle nadis constitutes one row. Vajra in side Sushumna is second row. Chitri in Vajra nadi is third row of subtle nerves. The outer cover of Brahmanadi in side chitri is the fourth row.
This Brahmanadi is the spinal cord of Karanasareer, Idea body.
33 beeds are there in the physical spinal cord. They are for the protection of four rows of sympatahatic nervous system.
The outermost nerves consists of Dura matter membrane filled with lymph. In side this nerves Arachnoid membrane exists that protects the liquid that comes out from brain. In side this Pia matter exists consisting of white & gray matter which itself is surrounded by Vascular membrane. This consists of Afferent & efferent nerves . This is the media by which Cerebrum, membranes, sense organs, action organs and other important organs are connected. There will be subtle canal in white & gray matter.
The physical eye consists of white, Iris, and pupil.
Behind that in the subtle
dom natured 3rd eye, there
will be Golden ring in place of Physical white. wis
There will be Blue ring inside Golden ring. This Blue ring represents Iris.
There will be 5pointed Silver star inside Blue ring. This 5pointed Silver star represents Pupil.
The extended hands to the sides, head, and two feet in standing position of a man, represents the star. Head represents Akaas, the extended hands representVayu and Agni, two feet represent Jal and Prithvi.

Devide the stomach into four parts. Keep two parts for solid food, one part for water, and the last and fourth part empty. The foods that creates gas are to be given up. Yogis do Pranayama with controlled food habits.
Eating unpolished rice is better than wheat for diseases like Blood pressure, arthiritis, and Allergy.
There are 72,000 subtle nadis existing in our body. Ida on left, Pingala on Right, and Sushumna subtle nadi in their centre are very important.
Effulgence is the outer cover of Sushumna subtle nadi. This will control the physical works of subtle lifetrons of the subtle body. Ida and Pingala will organize the sypathatic nervous system in Physical body.
Sushumna extends upto Sahasrara from Moolaadhara.
The Vajra in Sookshmanadi extends upto Sahasrara from Swadhistaana. This will supply energy for Contractions and rarefactions of Subtle body and for all the movements.
Chitri nadi in vajra extends upto Sahasrara from Manipura. This will coordinates the spiritual or consciousness related works of subtle body.
The works of Sushumna,Vajra, and chitri nadis are chiefly controlled by Sahasrara.
Sahasraara is the brain of Subtle body. The effulgent rays of this Sahasrara are supplying the energy required for Sahasrara and other six chakras. Physical Brain, the Physical locations of chakras, nerve centres, from there to nerves for their respective Physical works get energy from Sahasrara only.
Physical body is made of flesh and blood.
Subtlebody is made of lifetrons or pure Gnana effulgence.
Idea body or Karanasareera is filled with only Consciousness or thouhtrons.
Karanasareera is the source for the existence of Human consciousness. Karanasareera has brain of pure
and a spinal cord viz., Spiritual Brahmanadi. This will be enveloped in Chitri
subtle nadi. Chitri is of only Consciousness personified. wis
Sthoolasareera, Physical body, has physical Chakra locations. Likewise Subtlebody, has Subtle Chakra locations. Likewise Ideabody, has Idea Chakra locations. They are all mutually juxtaposed.
Ideabody has seven Idea chakras.
Physical Chakra locations, Physical Brain, Subtle Chakras, Subtle brain, Idea Chakras, and Idea brain work together.
In nutshell, all Physical, Subtle, and Idea bodies work together as a whole unit.
Physical, and Subtle bodies both are like tools and will cooperate with Ideabody in respect of recognition, desire, and experience.
The brain of Ideabody is reservoir of Cosmic consciousness that is filled with eternal energy, eternal consciousness, and eternal Happiness.
The manifestation of Spirit or Paramatama is Vyashtaatma,
soul. When Cosmic consciousness is entering into Idea body Chakras, then it
will express itself as pure wisdom in the Idea cerebrum, intuition in Medulla, Peace and tranquility
in Idea Visuddha chakra, as controller of Life force in Idea Anahata,
self-controller in Idea Manipura, as fortitude in Idea Swadhistana, and as
power of resistance as well as epicenter of incessant thoughts in Idea Mooladhara
Gopyam and Rahasyam are very important words in Sanskrit.
Gopyam = the concealed. Rahasyam= ra+hasyam= rahita haasyam= not to be laughed of.
Sadhana is not to be laughed of, it is a very serious business.
Thoughts are not visible outwardly, they are invisible and concealed. Savam (dead body) will not have any thoughts. Sivam (living one) is auspicious one. Sivam has thoughts. Thoughts are the rays of consciousness.
Kavita(Poetry) comes out of Kavi(
Poet). Likewise Gopika has come out of Guptam. So
all Gopikas are different thoughts. So each thought, good or bad, is an
embodiment of consciousness.
Sarvam khalu idam Brahma. The Consciousness exists everywhere. It is all penetrating/all pervasive. Sun and sunrays are not two different things. Likewise Srikrishnaparamatma and Srikrishna Consciousness are not two different things.
Srikrishnaparamatma or Srikrishna Consciousness are not limited and tangible things.
Yogi will have only one Thought i.e.,
Ordinary man will have several thoughts, say 16,000 thoughts. No body can count the unlimited thoughts that are emanated out of the mind. Just for the sake of it, it was mentioned as 16,000 thoughts. In a huge
one cannot count the number of people attended. They give the approximate numbers. Here is the same case in
respect of 16,000 thoughts mentioned.
16,000 Gopikas are in fact 16,000 thoughts. So there is Cosmic
behind each and every thought /Gopika. This is inner meaning of Srikrishna
is having 16,000 Gopikas. gath
The great amongst Kurus, Oh Arjun, those who take the residual food considered as nectar after burnt offerings in Yagna, shall get the eternal unity with
Parabrahman. Those who do not do this type of Yagna at
least once cannot have happiness in this world, then what to talk about the
happiness in the other worlds.
The real Yagna is Pramnayama. So by using some Pranayama technique or the other, one should control his life force. This life force is being transformed into five airs required by the body in a required magnitude failing which the body becomes disease proned.
Pranavayu protects decay of body.
Vyanavayu protects the body from anaemia, and low and high blood pressures.
Samanavayu protects the body from weak digestion.
The organs, muscles, tandons, and membranes etc. should not grow more than required. Udaanavayu protects this.
Apanavayu protects the body from the growth of toxins, Gastric problems, tumors, the growth of Cancer cells and piles problems.

When the captain of the ship sees darkness, he will entertain doubts about his approaching port city. Likewise, the depender of senses and sense objects, will be always entertaining doubts of his intelligence. So the intuition gained with Sadhana is superior and the most dependable.

He will direct his mind, intellect, and ego into the Moolaadhara, Swadhishtaana, Manipura, Anahata, Visuddha, and Agna chakras of Merudanda.
Agna chakra is conncted magnetically to the Third Eye. This Third eye is connected to Sahasrara which exists in the centre of Cerebrum. There the Kriyayogi melts his mind, Intellect, and Feelings in Soul Fire and perceives himself as a pure soul.
The physical eye can beholds the things existing in front of it upto some distance only. The third eye can behold the things that are existing in Physical, Subtle, and Idea worlds. The Kriyayogi whose mind enters the third eye beholds his subtle body initially. Gradually he will see the whole subtle world, and then he will behold his own configuration as a part of it. He can not make the life force, and consciousness to enter into spinal cord and the chakras without beholding the third eye. This leads to salvation.

The sadhakmwho roams in Brahma is real Brahmachari, and not the one who is unmarried. The sadhak should enter into

Where the mind becomes quite, steady, and peaceful due to Kriya yoga practice, beholding the Soul, experiencing this beholding, and where the yogi becomes quite contented with happiness in himself, being in Soul the yogi who is experiencing eternal happiness which is beyond the tangible sense pleasures, and is perceivable only with pure intellect, and will not detract from this Soul experience, not thinking about anything superior to this supreme Soul experience, unmoved by any distresses after being anchored to Soul experience, where there is no trace of grief even— the state of such grieflessness is to be understood as Uniting with God or self-realization. This state is to be achieved with great Kriya yoga Sadhana for which unperturbed courage, steadfastness and fortitude is required.

The desires born out of volition have to be completely discarded, the senses have to be controlled from all sides with steady mind, slowly and steadily the intellect has to be distanced away from worldly affairs, the sadhak has to be settled in rest within. Also the mind has to be firmly established in Soul/self and thoughts other than matters of Soul have to be completely mitigated from the mind.
The sadhak should not do sadhana in the following conditions:
1) The places of extreme cold and heat.
2) The places fronm where the stanching or more fragrant smell emanating, and
3) The places from where the sounds are emanating.
He should do his Sadhana in a quite and calm place, and in solitude.

The unsteady mind has to be deviated from the objects of the senses in which it is wandering. Then it has to be established in the Soul and should be subjugated to the soul.
Mind is like a soiled cloth impregnated with habits accumulated from several births. The soiled cloth appears to be more dirty than before after every washing. When the outer dirt layer is washed out, then the inner dirt layer which is subtler than the outer layer will occupy its place. The cloth becomes cleanser after 3 or 4 four washings. Likewise when the outer layer of thoughts and habits are annihilated, then the inner layers of past births will take their place. The mind becomes pure and reaches thoughtlessness state with continuous, incessant, and intensive sadhana. The state of thoughtlessness state depends upon both the longevity and intensity of the sadhak. After complete eradication of thoughts the state of thoughtlessness is reached.
Upaitisaantirajasam Brahmabhootamakalmasham 27
The yogi who is calm and Peaceful minded, without any impurities(desires, anger, greediness,
usion, pride, and
jealousy), who is one with spirit, and blemishless(without any mala,
vikshepana, and avarana doshas), is verily attaining the supreme Soul
Put a handfull of soil into a glass jar containg stilled water. After some time that soil will settle in that water jar. The solid things will settle at the bottom, the subtle things will float on the top, and semi solid things will be moving in the middle of the jar.
Likewise the thoughts of Sadhak will be disturbing him in the initial stages of Sadhana. Not only it appears to the sadhak as though more and more thoughts are emanating due to Sadhana. If you do work then only one can judge ‘what you did is right or wrong.’ If you don’t do any work, then the question of judging right or wrong does not arise. That does not mean that in action is right. If the sadhak continues his sadhana without any despair, then the thoughtlessness state can be achieved in due course.

The Samadhies one will get in Mooladhara, Swadhisthana, Manipura, and Anahata chakras are called Sampragnaata Samadhies, the doubtful ones. In these chakras the doubt of sadhak, ‘God exists or not’, is not mitigated.
The Samadhies one will get in, Visuddha, Agna, Sahasrara chakras are called Asampragnaata Samadhies, the doubtless ones. In these chakras the doubt of sadhak, ‘God exists or not’, is completely mitigated.

The sadhana in Mooladhara chakra provides and improves devine wisdom, clairvoyance, and smelling power of nose. The one who does not do Sadhana in this Chakra will get his happiness destroyed gradually.
The Sadhana in Swadhisthana chakra provides and improves self control,

The one who does not do Sadhana in this Chakra will get his wisdom destroyed
The Sadhana in Manipura chakra provides and improves immunization power, seeing power of eye,and protects from evil forces. The one who does not do Sadhana in this Chakra will be subjected to diseases, and spell of evil forces gradually.
The Sadhana in Anahata chakra provides and improves love, touching power of skin. The one who does not do Sadhana in this Chakra will be subjected to skin diseases, and feeling of hatred gradually.
The Sadhana in Visuddha chakra provides and improves peace and tranquility, hearing power of ear. The one who does not do Sadhana in this Chakra will be subjected to restlessness gradually.
Kundalini force is called Vasuki, and MeruParvat is Spinal cord.
To utilize Swasa(

is called Swastra. Gradually Swastra has become Sastra in brea ge. Chrning
of Meruparvat means sending the Kundalini force i.e., Vasuki through Sushumna
subtle nadi. usa
The outgoing life force i.e., Kundalini while going through Sushumna, it will pass through Mooladhara, swadhisthana, Manipura, Anahata,
Agna, and then to Sahasrara. This is
done through Kriya yoga sadhana.
While passing through Mooladhara, Swadhisthana, Manipura, Anahata, and
the Kundalini life force will inherit the qualities of those respective Chakras. The kundalini snake now will have five hoods
viz., sabda(sound), sparsa(touch), roopa(seeing), Rasa(taste), and Gandha
(smell). This snake is called five hooded Kaleeyasarpa(Snake). When this five
hooded snake reaches Agna Chakra in Kootastha, then the poison viz., Kama, krodha, lobha, moha, mada, and maatsarya, in that
is removed. This is called
Kaaleeyamardanam or removing the poison from this snake by SriKrishna. Agna
chakra is called Srikrishna chakra.
In Agna chakra in kootastha the sadhak will experience doubtless(asampragnata savikalpa Samadhi or srashta Samadhi). Here the
Cosmic consciousness is appeared as Great(Maha)
effulgence(Bharata). Here the Sadhak and Parabrahman
juxtaposed to each other.
This Mahabharata is called Vaitarinee. The sadhak will be endowed with Clairvoyance.
Crossing this effulgent Vaitarinee and making the kundalinee life force to reach Sahasrara Chakra will provide the Sadhak with Nirvikalpa Samadhi, the greatest ecstatic union with God, the
The Sadhak will be only witnessee, the Saksheebhoota. He will be completely

you taught me the Yoga, the union with God that is to be attained with steady
mind. I am unable to understand its
steady existence with my unsteady mind.
The sadhak has to make the outgoing sleeping Kundalinee life force awakened and to go within and reach Sahasrara through Sushumna subtle nadi with steady, regular, and incessant Kriya yoga sadhana.
What will happen if the awakened outgoing kundalinee life force goes towards Ida in the left or Pingala in the right, is given in the table below:
Complete peace, calmness, stability
Incoherent talking, too much talkative
Reserved talking, stability, silence, peaceful
Life force control, stabilized life force
Fearfulness, hatred, revengeful attitude, power mongerism
Courage, friendliness, versatility, self control
Unstable mind, worldy desires
Stable mind, realization, Spiritual adherence
Cruelty, brute nature,
Truthfulness, desirelessness, Tenderness, to resist negativity.
Chanchalam hi manah
Tasyaaham nigrahammanye vaayoriva sudushkaram 34
verily, mind is unstable, tumultuous, powerful, and obstinate. Wind is
uncontrollable. Likewise I feel mind is difficult to master.
Pranayamam is initially difficult to practice. But it is easier to a Kriya yogi. If life force is controlled then mind will be controlled and viceversa. Mind and breath are complimentary to each other. The sadhak has to control his mind or life force to get united with Spirit, the
Parabrahman. The Kriyayogi will control his life force and
get united with the Spirit.
The kriyayogi does his sadhana by keeping his tongue into the gullet. This is called khecharimudra. For each and every
breath in and th
out , the sadhak has to see that his tongue should not be slipped out. If the
tongue slips out then the mind will become unsteady. So the sadhak has to put
the tongue back into the gullet. If the sadhana is practiced this way, then the
tongue will be steady and will not be slipped out. Then both mind and life
force will be steady. brea

Ordinarily in 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, or 48 years this development can be achieved by doing Kriyas in a systematic manner regularly everyday. In case the kriyayogi who dies without achieving this result completely, he will carry forward to the next birth this result of Kriyayoga Sadhana. It will not go waste as he need not start afresh.
The life of Kriyayogi is not subjected to the directions of Sanchita Karma. His life will be guided by the direction given by Soul.
Kriyayoga should take limited food and practice his sadhana in solitude.

Sri Bhagavan said:
The Supreme Spirit which is

This expresses Itself as unreal and physical Cosmos through
OM and three Gunas, Satwa(positive),
Rajas(Zero), and Tamas(negative), which is visible to the naked eyes. This OM is also called Visarga.

Karmas are two types, worldly and Godly, Laukika and alaukika. Ablutions, occupation, eating food are worldly
Karmas. Sandhyavandanam(chanting Gayatri Mantra), worshipping God, Fire ceremonies, and Kriya yoga sadhana.
These worldly and Godly actions(Karmas) are again devided into three types, Sanchita(Past), Prarabdha(Present), and Aagaami(Future).
If Godly actions are done with expectations(kartritwa bhavana) then it is bondage, without expectations(Nivritti) it is called salvation.
We cannot spend the money earned by us in one day or one

results of Karma in this birth cannot be experienced in the same birth. They

Aagaami depends upon the spending of the money we bring in. If we spend it for good cause then good Aagami Karma is added, if it is for bad purpose then bad Aagami karma is added.

The worldly man yields to the Maya and forgets the Parabrahman. The Kriya yogi merges with divine vibrations of

The one who chants or memorizes me at the time of leaving this physical body shall undoubtedly get MY Form.
Today if one is able to solve a difficult mathematical equation or singing a complex classical song without any effort and easy is due to the fact of tremendous home work done by him in the past. This proficiency cannot be achieved in one day. It is mastered over a period of time. Likewise the sadhak who does sadhana regularly shall leave his physical body while memorizing the name of God till the last moment and shall merge with

So do the war of your nature by keeping me in your mind always. This way if you completely surrender yourself in body and mind then you will get meonly.
The regular and incessant sadhana is the pre requisite to attain unity with God. With sucha sadhana if sadhak fixes his mind on Parabrahman, then it will be easier to attain HIM. This is made possible with Kriyayoga. Kriyayoga is Swadharma, one’s own duty, and this sadhana is real war.

At the time of leaving this physical sack, the sadhak who is devoted and strengthened with Kriyayoga sadhana, he fully penetrates his life force in between the eye brows (Kootastha), and memorizes or chants Parabrahman, then he gets united with HIM. Parabrahman is Omniscient, the origin less Purana Purusha, Controller and organizer of Cosmos, subtler amongst subtle things, basis of
Cosmos, beyond logic, self effulgent and infinite times
more effulgent than Sun, beyond ignorance and obscurity.

Karana sareera(Idea body):
Anandamaya kosa (Blissful sheath) is Karanasareera. It comprises three Gunas, Satwa, Rajas, and Tamas, the primordial ignorance, form of
usion. It is an armour of ignorance. This is the origin of Subtle five

organs) made of these physical Pancha mahabhootaas, Pancha Karmendriyas(Action

He Arjun, the sadhak who one pointedly thinks about me day in and day out, shall attain me easily.
Kundalinee saadhana is called Srividya. In this five important things are to be followed scrupulously. They are:
Aahaaraniyamam(Food conditions): To eat saatwik food.
Aatmaniyamam(Self conditions): To control the senses
Nivaasa niyamam(Dwelling conditions): Not to stay in unwanted places.
Nivaasa niyamam(Character pattern): Not to use undesirable means to earn money.
Samsarga niyamam(friendship conditions): Not to do unwanted friendship.
After following Yama, Niyama, AAsana, and Pratyaahaara, if the sadhak does 12 good Praanaayaamaas, then he will go within. This is called Pratyaahaar or Antarmukhatwam.
If the he cannot go within with this, then the sadhak should go on adding multiples 12 Pranayaamas till he goes within.
If the sadhak does 144 good Praanaayaamaas, then he will get Dhaarana i.e., concentration of mind.
If the sadhak cannot get Dhaarana with this, then he should go on adding multiples 12 Pranayaamas till he gets concentration of mind.
If the sadhak does good Praanaayaamaas of 1728 or more, then his meditation will be stabilized.
In one sitting, in one posture, if the sadhak does 20736 good Praanaayaamaas, then he will get Samaadhi, the ecstatic union with God, at that time of that day.
This body is Rath,
Soul/self is Rathika, the charioteer.

The present Yuga is ascending Dwapara yuga and it started at year 1700 as stated by my Parama Guru Gnaanavataar, the incarnation of wisdom, Sri Yukteswar Giri Swamiji. This has been narrated by him in his Great book ‘Kaivalya Darsan’ with illustrations.
Earth has got its own satellite, moon, revolving around it. The other planets like Venus, Mercury, Saturn, Mars etc have got their respective satellites revoving around them in their respective orbits. Every planet has got its own orbit. They not only revolve around themselves but also revolve around Sun in their own orbits in elliptical order.
Likewise Sun also revolves around himself and also revolves elliptically around a star as its centre of orbit. This is called
the Universal grand centre.
Vishnunabhi it is shown in Hindu mythological pictures as
Brahma sitting on a lotus.
Brahma is the centre of
dom. wis Lotus inspite of being in water will not get rotten. So
inspite of being in this water like sansar(mundane world), one will not lose
balance and remain anchored to God and should continue his Kriyayoga sadhana
without forgetting HIM. That is real dom. wis
To make one resolution around
Vishnunabhi, Sun will make
24000 years. 12000 years is half ripple.
The full circle consists of two half ripples, ascending and
The Vernal Equinox(Mesha Sankranti) falls on 21March of every year.
The Autumnal Equinox(
sankranti) falls on
23 September of every year. On that day,
day and night will be equal. Tula
When Sun enters into Makara Rasi then it called Makara Samkraanti. This is the start of Summer Solstice or Uttaraayanam. Around 21st June every year, Sun travels away from Equator 23 ½ ౦ towards north. That is why winter starts.
When Sun enters into Karkataka Rasi then it called Karkataka Samkraanti. This is the start of winter Solstice or Dakshinaayanam. Around 21st December every year, Sun travels towards Equator 23 ½ ౦ towards South. That is why Summer starts.
In the 24000 years of travel course of Sun around
first 12000 years ascending ripple contains Kali, Dwaapara, Treta, and Satya
Yugas. They are called ascending yugas. The next 12000 years discending ripple
contains Satya, Treta, Dwaapara, and Kali Yugas.
Every yuga contains mutation period at the rate of 100 years for every 1000 years in the beginning and in the end.
Kaliyuga = 100+1000+100=1200 years.
Dwaaparayuga = 200+2000+200=2400 years.
Tretayuga = 300+3000+300=3600 years,
Satyayuga = 400+4000+400=4800 years
1700 A.D. is the start of Ascending Dwapara yuga. If the initial 200 years mutation is added then then 1900A.D. is the start of real Ascending Dwaapara yuga. 113 years real Dwapara yuga elapsed till this year i.e., 2013. in the year 4100A.D. the Ascending Treta yuga starts.
Pandavas handed over the kingdom to Raja Parikshit and they went together with learned people to
Himalayas for penance. At the time of Raja
Parikshit, the discending 2400 years already
completed and descending Kali yuga already started. But nobody dared to tell
this fact to the King as the start of Kaliyuga is deemed to be bad thing. Due
to the dearth of learned people, the
existing timid people told Parikshit that the Dwaparayuga is continuing by
erroneously extending it. That way 2401
discending Dwapara yuga existed.
Vernal equinox (Mesha sankraanti) is at a distance of 200 54’ 36’’ feom fixed star Revati of Mesha Rasi first Paada(Part). That has elapsed 1394 years and presently it is 194 years Ascending Dwapara yuga. This is what Swami Sri Yukteswara Giriji said in 1894A.D. Presently it is 114th year of Ascending Dwapara yuga after deducting the initial mutation period of 200 years.
The qualities of yugas:
When Sun is revoving around
Vishnu nabhi, the first ascending 1200
years is ascending Kaliyuga in the first half of 12000years ripple. At this
time of ascending Kaliyuga, Dharma(righteousness) will be on one paada,
25%. In ascending order it gradually
Intellect will give preference to the physical things but moves towards
Parabrahman from where it
has come. In descending Kaliyuga man
give preference only to physical things only and moves away from Parabrahman.
When Sun is revoving around
Vishnu nabhi, the first ascending 2400
years is ascending Dwapara yuga in the first half of 12000years ripple. At this
time of ascending Dwaparayuga, Dharma(righteousness) will be on two paadas,
50%. In ascending order it gradually
Intellect will give preference to the mental things but moves towards
Parabrahman from where it
has come. In descending Kaliyuga man
give preference only to mental things only and moves away from Parabrahman.
From the year 1700 A.D. man has made many Scientific inventions and innovations, and it is due to the ascending mental faculties.
When Sun is revoving around
nabhi, the first ascending 3600 years is ascending Treta yuga in the first half
of 12000years ripple. At this time of ascending Tretayuga,
Dharma(righteousness) will be on three paadas, 75%. In ascending order it gradually increases.
In ascending Treta yuga Intellect will give preference to the Ideas but moves towards
from where it has come. In descending
Kaliyuga man gives preference only to Ideas only and moves gradually away from Parabrahman.
When Sun is revoving around
nabhi, the first ascending 4800 years is ascending Satya yuga in the first half
of 12000years ripple. At this time of ascending Satyayuga,
Dharma(righteousness) will be on Four paadas, 100%. In ascending order it gradually increases.
In ascending Satya yuga Intellect will give preference to the Ideas but moves towards
from where it has come. In descending
Satya yuga the man moving gradually away from Parabrahman
Covering the mistake:
In descending Dwaparayuga the gradually moves away from Ideas.
The so called learned in
time, made this 2400years’ descending Dwaparayuga by multiplying it with
360. This comes to 8,64,000years. By
this 2400 years is extended by wrongly calculating it. They cleverly covered it by saying that our
360 days are equal to one day of Brahma.
1200, 2400, 3600, and 4800 years of original years of yugas are
described as Years of Brahma. So see the following calculations of yugas made
by these so called learned people of Raja Pa rikshit. Raja
Kaliyuga= 1200Brahma yearsx360days= 4,32,000years on Earth,
Dwaparayuga= 2400Brahma yearsx360days= 8,64,000years on Earth,
Tretayuga= 3600Brahma yearsx360days= 12,96,000years on Earth,
Satyayuga= 4800Brahma yearsx360days= 17,28,000years on Earth,

When the primordial nature, or Ignorance, or Kaaranasareera remains, it is called dissolution., Pralaya. With the grace of SadGuru, and Kriya yoga sadhana, the sadhak will get pure
dom. His karanasareera also gets
destroyed and then the sadhak will be united with wis Parabrahman.
This is called Janmaraahitya or birthless state.

body into Physical Antahkarana and then
into Physical body. This is how this
inert physical body of flesh and blood functions with the aid of Cosmic consciousness.
The results of actions pertain to several births has to be experienced by the subtle body for which this physical body is the media.
The Cosmic consciousness enters from organ less Karanasareera(Idea body) or Brahmanadi. Into subtle body. From there it enters into Subtle Antahkarana and from there into the subtle body to activate it. Kartritwa(actions) and Bhoktritwa(experiencing) traits are the Dharma of Subtle Antahkarana. This only experiences happiness or unhappiness.
The inert body is Vyashti Shrishti, micro Creation. The inert
is Samishti Shrishti, macro Creation. This is called Maaya which is an integral
part of Parabrahman. If Paramaatma
is having four legs, then one leg is this Maaya. This Maaya is manifested as
Creation. The rest of three legs of Parabrahman
is beyond this Maaya. The Cosmic conscious of
the remaining three legs enters into this micro/macro Creation and activates
that inert one.
The micro Creation is called Vyashtaatma or Pratyagaatma,
Soul. Dream comes in the head of a man. The rest of the three parts of the body
are beyond the dream. ind
It is ignorance to trust dream as real. Ignorance is subjugated to three Gunas. Because of this ignorance the real Brahman appears to be unreal.

and Moolaadhaara chakraas. So travelling the cosmic consciousness degraded into
utter human consciousness and entangles in this circuit of mundane existence
firmly without any moor. Moolaadhaara
chakra is South.
When jeeva transmigrates from one body into another body, he will carry his subtle body alongwith Ignorant Kaaranasareera(Ideabody), desires, actions(Karma), and panchmahatatwas(Five electricities).
The Ideabody will have top secret invisible chip called Chitragupta chittaa. It contains all data about the Jeeva.
Jeeva means the impure soul containing the above said traits.
Jeeva will travel through ether, Air, smoke, the rainy clouds. Then through grains he becomes food and enters the man who consumes that food. That form is called Annaswaroopa.
From that body of man who has taken the food, he will enter into vagina of lady with whom this man has cohabited as Shukla, sperm. There he will combine with Sonitam, ovum, of Lady.
The subtle body, the subtle portions of tainted panchabhootatatwaas, the results of good and bad actions, desires in the form traits, Jeeva with three Gunaas are cotravellers till one gets liberated.

Pitruyaananadi, or KRISHNAAYAANA NADI.
The men of ignorance, the seekers of Karmaphal(results of actions), will
travel through this path.
Pingala extends upto Right side of the nostril from Mooladhara through spinal cord. This is called SURYANADI, Devayaananadi, or SHUKLAYAANA NADI. The men of wisdom, the sacrificers of Karmaphal (results of actions), will travel through this path.
Jeevanmukta will be only witnessing this world without any attachment.
The meditator, the meditation, and the subject of meditation together are called TRIPUTI.

He Arjun, those who are having low and sinful births, ladies, vaisyas, Sudras, are attaining supreme goal of reaching Me undoubtedly.
Those who do not do any sadhana are Sudras. The awakened kundalinee start touching Chakras gradually proportional to Kriya yoga sadhana. The development of the sadhak is proportional to the Chakra the awakened Kundakinee touches. The castes, Brahma, Kshatriya, Vaisya, and Sudras are made as per the chakra reached by the awakened Kundalinee. If this awakened Kundlinee touches Moolaadhaara then he is called Kshatriya, Swadhistaana—Vaisya, Manipura—Vipra, and Anaahata—Brahmin.
The son of an Engineer may or may not become an Engineer in future. A Sadhak who could become a Brahmin by virtue of his awakened Kundalinee touching Anaahatachakra may not have a son of that stature. Hence the father may be a Brahman, but his son may not be.

Before the advent of Creation the Spirit only remained. This is called Poornaatma, Brahman, and
Brahman spread its Consciousness into ignorance, its result is Creation.
To our mind, Brahman is appeared to be two types:
1) The GOD beyond creation, unmanifested.
2) The GOD in creation, manifested.
If Brahman is divided into four parts, then one part is manifested as Creation. This is called VyaktaBrahman, manifested Cosmic Nature, which is tangible to the senses.
The unmanifested Brahman, intangible to senses, is having three qualities,
, Bhaati, and Priyam. This is called
Avyakta, Niraakaara Brahmam, or Parabrahman. Asti
Bhaati means Effulgence,Chit(Energy),
Priyam means Happiness.
Sat is imperishable, truthful, and omnipotent.
Chit is ever conscious
Ananda is ever happy.
Brahman is the configuration of Sat Chit Aananda.
Brahman with name and form is Jagat or Maya. The Creation that has been manifested out of Brahman is called Maaya.
Maaya which is unreal appears to be real to the ordinary man of ignorance. When figures are super imposed on white cinema screen, then it is not visible.. Maaya is akin to this superimposition of figures and white screen is Brahman.
Suppose there is a 3000 sq feet ground. If 1000 sq ft house is constructed in that ground. 2000 sq ft is left blank. If the whole ground of 3000 sq feet is
Parabrahman, then the
constructed 1000 sq ft house is God in Creation. Then the God is said to be in
Creation and beyond Creation as well.
Peace, tranquility, internal happiness, and endurance etc are Satwa Gunas,
Arishadwargaas (Kaama, Krodha,
ha, Mada, Maatsarya), desires, fickle
mindedness are Rajo Gunas, zero qualities(catalyst). Lobha, Mo
Attachment, dull headedness, forgetfulness, absentmindedness, sleep,
ay, and carelessness etc are tamo gunas,
negative qualities. del
The cosmic consciousness reflected in pure positive Maaya. This consciousness extended into zero and negative qualities and made them active. Now the inert Maaya becomes conscious with three Gunas.
This activated Maaya make the mind to think so that the imperishable Nature(Apara Prakriti) has been the metamorphosis or result in the initial stages of Creation. This Apara Prakriti is bound to time, and space. This is being called as Mithya(unreal) and Avidya(Ignorance).
Jeevanmukta will not have any ‘my, or my body’’ feeling. After experiencing his Prarabdha karma(the one brought by him for the present), and completion of the work given by
Parabrahman, some sadhaks will get liberation. This is
called Videhamukti. He will be working
for God only.
A ray of Avidya will remain with Jeevanmukta for the completion of Prarabdha karma till he is completely liberated. His subtle and Idea bodies will remain and they merge with
after he gets videhamukti.
