Friends, in the previous post, I was telling that how Kundalini is hungry for love. In spiritual scriptures, even God is said to be hungry for love. Actually God has been called Kundalini there. Together I was saying that today’s generation is becoming unbalanced. They have plenty of time and resources for electronic videos, social media, and games. But there is no time and no resources for electronic books, webposts and online discussions. Leave aside their physical or paper forms, which are also necessary in their place. If these knowledge ways are of the spiritual type, then not at all. I had a chance discussion with the owner of a well-known bookseller’s shop once on this matter. The poor was saying that electronic gadgets had greatly reduced the sale of books in his shop. Still, his contentment and tolerance have to be admired for he was saying that children should be kept away from mobile phones and other electronic gadgets with great love and not by scolding. The scolding will fill them with frustration and inferiority. Better not to scold them, let them use them, they will learn for themselves. Here we are not showing anything high or low. All we are saying is that all human things are needed in a balanced quantity. Balance is yoga, balance is spirituality.
Real writer writes for himself
I always try to write for my intellectual development. A real writer writes for himself, not for others. Writing gives the brain a sort of external hard disk, to store data. By reducing the burden of the brain, it can think better. You already know how much contemplation power is needed for Kundalini Yoga. Concentrated or focused contemplation is Kundalini. Therefore If someone reads anyone’s writing it is fine, if none read then too it is fine. What other people will benefit from one’s writings from which the writer himself cannot benefit. If the world benefits along with his benefits, what can be better than that? You can assume that my writings have contributed immensely to my spiritual experiences. Many times it seems that if I had not had the habit of writing, I would not have had those experiences. Nowadays it has become a custom to exaggerate the prices of eBooks. But the truth is that they do not drain the physical resources of the author, such as paper, pen etc. Their Publishing is also available free of cost through Self Publishing. Only the intellect of the author is spent. But the intellect grows when it is spent. The value of a book is found in the form of wisdom and experience gained, then why to take another value in the form of money. It is also said that knowledge increases by spending. That’s why in older days spiritual services used to be provided at free of cost or at no profit no loss basis. Paid ebooks get very few readers. Google Play Books and PDF Drive dot net are great platforms to buy and sell free ebooks. Within the last one year, 9000 copies of my ebooks on Google Play Books have been sold for zero price. Even among these books, the best sales have been made by the books prepared by compiling all the blog posts of this website. If they had been kept at a price, may be even nine would not have been sold. I am saying this because there are paid versions of these books (at the lowest price) on another platform, where only about nine have been sold. Google Play Books was also once experimented by keeping the minimum price of books, even then only 4-5 copies were sold in two or three months. The satisfaction that a writer gets from the interest of readers to his writing is not obtained from money.
Hathyoga pradeepika is the classic treatise of hath yoga
From my previous writings, I learned this week why not to find universal proof of my spiritual experiences in the spiritual scriptures. So I started reading Swami Muktibodhananda’s Hatha Yoga Pradipika. Read more than 15% of the book in two days. I was able to read so quickly because what I have been writing from my own experiences, more or less the same was written. Along with this, due to the holiday of Shri Krishna Janmashtami, enough time was also available. There was a difference of only two or four views. If I tell that difference, then it can be assumed that you too must have read that book, because you have been reading my posts from the very beginning. I will keep telling that difference in future posts as well.
Ida and pingala channels have been depicted as god Ardhnaareeshvara
It is written in that book that the Ida Nadi rises upward through the left side of the back, but near top turns to the right and covers the right hemisphere of the brain. But I feel it going only in the left brain. Similarly the Pingala Nadi is depicted covering the right side of the lower body and the left side of the brain. But I see it going only in the right brain. The same is shown in the picture of Ardhanarishvara, according to my viewing. There it is not shown that the lower left part of the body is that of a woman and the upper left part or brain of a man. Maybe there is some more philosophical or experiential twist to this.
Spiritual accomplishments may grow too by telling to others
Another difference was that in that book it was said that the yogic accomplishments should be kept secret. I also believe that secrecy is fine up to one level, but not beyond that. When the mind is filled with awareness and one does not want to have any more experiences of momentary awakening, then it is better to make one’s awakening public. Inquisitive people get to learn a lot from this. This actually happens by itself. A man who has little money, and is not fully satisfied with it, he hides it so that others do not ask for it. But when a man has unlimited money, and his heart is filled with money, then he speaks openly about it. This happens because he knows that no matter how much someone takes, but his money is not going to run out. Even if someone takes all his money, it does not matter to him, because his mind is already filled with money. Rather, he feels the benefit, because what he does not want, he gets chased for it. By the way, in today’s scientific and intellectual society, spiritual accomplishments also increase by telling. This is because today’s educated people move ahead by taking inspiration from each other’s information. I feel that if I had not discussed my first spiritual experience openly on social media, I would not have had another awakening experience. Due to illiteracy and ignorance in the primitive age of old times, people would probably have jealousy and hatred of each other. Due to this, they would have pulled each other’s legs without taking inspiration from each other’s knowledge, only then there would have been a sway to hide the accomplishments at that time. I also found incomplete information about Kundalini. I will tell about this and more in the next post.
