Friends, in the previous to previous post I was telling how the river Ganga descended. King Sagar’s sixty thousand sons are the symbol of thousands of desires. Saagar or ocean means world, Sagar means man drowned in ocean means body. Every living soul is the king of his body that’s the whole world actually. The whole world exists in this body. The word Sagar is derived from the word Saagar. It is said that a pot-like figure was born from the womb of King Sagar’s wife. There were sixty thousand children like ants in it. They came out and grew and in course of time became sixty thousand perfect human beings. The brain is also like a pitcher, in which thousands of very subtle desires reside. Through the senses, they come out and create many bizarre creations and feelings, which means they become like a fully developed human being. What is human, only a state of feeling. Countless states of feelings means countless humans. Similarly, hundred Kaurav sons were born to Queen Gandhari. Maybe there is a similar secret hidden behind it too. It is about the days of the early classes of primary school. There was a Hindi poem, ‘Kaurav Sau The Pandav Panch, children of real brothers; Pandavas were the protectors of Veer Dharam, Kauravas were proud of their wealth”. I would try to explain to all the children in the class that it is impossible for one to have a hundred or sau sons, so instead of ‘sau’ the word is ‘so’, meaning ‘that’s’, but all the children would say that Guruji had said ‘hundred’. I told them that they had made a mistake in listening to him. When I read the poem in my own way as the teacher asked, he corrected me. I was surprised but he did not give any scientific reason for it, nor did I dare to ask. There was such a deep belief in such stories, although it was not that someone would start trying to give birth to a hundred sons in reality. However, such stories can also contribute in increasing the population. In such stories, there has been a practice of showing mental image or thought in the form of a son in the scriptures. It’s spiritually scientific too because the semen that produce a son can also produce an energized or awakened thought. Maybe if we understood their secrets, they would not keep that psychological suspense in our mind, which keeps on motivating the man to move forward.
Spiritual and psychological benefits of nasal vision like an effective and clear nose
Second, we were raising the issue of how the shakti of Muladhara keeps on burning the garbage of the subconscious mind. By meditating on the nose, in any place of stress and fatigue, there is profound peace and one experiences the bliss of Advaita. Visuals begin to emerge with witnessing in the mind, so that it seems that the garbage of the mind is being cleared. Breathing seems improving. This happens because it activates the energy channel in the central line, in which the energy from Swadhishthana and Muladhara starts flowing upwards through the back and flows in a circular loop. One day I went to a nearby school on an invitation to see the annual prize distribution ceremony. There the children were presenting a very nice colorful program. During that time, I felt all these psychological benefits by occasionally squinting towards my nose. Along with this, I was also concentrating on the air touching inside the nose while breathing. Had a fresh shave from the barber, and have a face scrub done, which made the mustache look bigger and clearer. Probably it was also drawing attention towards the nose. It is possible that the practice of keeping mustache has been made in view of this spiritual benefit. It seems that this dominated nose and the above mentioned psychological benefits with it are behind the attractiveness and sexy look of a man with a big nose. Anyway, a person paying attention to the nose looks beautiful, introverted, shying, spiritual and satisfied with himself. Probably that’s why many proverbs have been made on the nose, such as lighting a candle on nose, take care of your nose, keep your nose high, save your nose, don’t let your nose get cut, don’t poke your nose in my work etc. etc. I also think that by fixing Doordarshan that’s tv on the wall at eye level or even a little lower, it is more enjoyable to watch it, because while watching it, the eye remains on the nose as well. Nose may be less or not at all visible when it’s fixed higher up and along with it comes pain in the neck as well. Some experts even say that the upper edge of Doordarshan should be in line with the eyes, like the computer monitor. Along with this, I used to get a kind of peace even by mentally pronouncing sleep. While sleep pronounced in the mind, the breath, especially the exhaled breath, is longer, this proves that the energy descends through the front channel with exhalation. While doing pranayama, holding the nose with a finger and thumb and keeping sensitive pressure on the agya chakra point with the tip of second finger of the same hand, I feel the energy getting centralized. I feel my body being recharged with energy by pressing the Ajna Chakra with one hand finger and the Swadhishthana Chakra together with second hand finger. This tantric technique seems strange, but it is of great use. Let the breath move and stop as per its wish, let the energy run as per its wish, in Ida or Pingla or wherever it or you wish. Eventually it will automatically come into the central Sushumna channel, because its two corner points are pressed with the fingers, due to which the blissful sensation of pressure generated by them pushes the Shakti itself into the Sushumna and it starts revolving in a circle. Due to this, sufficient power easily reaches the part of the body where it is needed. For example the tired heart, of course it is in the left side of the upper body. Likewise the tired legs. Actually the energy moves in between those two corner points of the nadi, it can take any path. The preferred path is the one with the least obstruction. Naturally, the path with the least shakti remaining will be the one with the least resistance, because it will attract more shakti to itself, and will allow it to go further after getting enough of it. Many times while doing Yogasana, when the pressure in the brain increases due to stopping the breath, then the point of agya chakra is not pressed, only a slight observation remains on the nose. Due to this, the pressure of the brain decreases enough and goes towards the lower chakras. Actually Sushumna does not come under control directly. It has to be controlled through Ida and Pingala and pushed into Sushumna from there. That’s why you must have seen that many people apply Urdhvatripund on their forehead. In this, the two edge lines represent Ida and Pingala respectively, and the middle line represents Sushumna. It is just like a child does not sit down to study straight away, but starts studying after playing a little. Although the shakti in Sushumna does not stay for long, it lasts only for a few moments. Although it is felt in Ida and Pingala also for a short time, but it remains for a longer time than Sushumna. Just like a child studies for less time, and sports for more time. Moreover, one day I was watching some youth of a Hindu organization on Doordarshan means tv. There were long tilaks on their forehead. Some have a thin line and some have a wide one. While viewing one of the widest, longest and brightest tilak lines, my energy started moving very nicely in the Sushumna, and I felt very relaxed. I was taking advantage of seeing that Tilak again and again. Of course it looked ridiculous and odd like that big Tilak. Practical spirituality and Advaita were also visible in his eyes and gait. With other tilaks too I was getting power, but not that much. The brightness of spirituality on their faces was also not that much. In real life even the person who applies Tilak donates Kundalini benefits indirectly to other people when they look at his Tilak. This means that the power of satsang means good company can also be found through Doordarshan. Amazing spiritual science, man.
