March 18, 2013 Comments Off on The 36Th meditation Technique of Vigyan Bhairava tantra:
Lord Shiva Explains to Devi:
“ LOOK UPON SOME OBJECT, THEN SLOWLY WITHDRAW YOUR SIGHT FROM IT, THEN
SLOWLY WITHDRAW YOUR THOUGHT FROM IT. THEN
Look upon some object. Look at a flower, but remember what that LOOK means.
Look! Do not think. Always remember that LOOK means : Look, do not think. If
you think,it is not a look; then you have contaminated everything. It must
be a pure look, a simple look.
LOOK UPON SOME OBJECT.. look at a flower— rose flower. THEN SLOWLY
WITHDRAW YOUR SIGHT FROM IT – – – very very s-l-o-w-l-y. The flower is
there- – – first look at it. Drop thinking; go on looking. When you feel
that now there is no thought, simply flower is there in your mind, nothing
else, now slightly move your eyes away. By and by the flower recedes, goes
out of focus, but the IMAGE will remain with you; The object will have gone
out of focus; you will have turned your look away. The image, the outer
flower is no more there, but is reflected— reflected in your mirror of
consciousness. It will be there! THEN SLOWLY WITHDRAW YOUR SIGHT FROM IT,
THEN SLOWLY WITHDRAW YOUR THOUGHT FROM IT.
So first, withdraw from the outer object. Then, only the inner image
remains— the THOUGHT of the rose flower. Now Withdraw that THOUGHT also.
This is very difficult, the second part, but if the first part is done
exactly as it is said, it will not be so difficult. First withdraw your mind
from the object, from your sight. Then close your eyes, and just as you have
removed your eyesight from the object, REMOVE yourself from the image,
withdraw yourself; become indifferent. Do not look at it inside, just feel
that you have gone away from it.. Soon the image will also disappear
First the OBJECT disappears, then the IMAGE disappears. And when the image
disappears, Lord Shiva says, THEN. Then you are left alone. In that
ALONENESS one REALIZES ONESELF, one comes to the Center, one is thrown to
the original source’
This is a very good meditation– — you can do it. Take any object, but let
the object remain the same everyday so that the same image is created
inside and you remove yourself from the same image. Images in the Temple
were used for this technique. Now the images are there, but the technique is
lost. You go to a temple — this is the technique to do. Look at the statue
of Rama or Krishna or Buddha or any other. Look at the statue, concentrate
on it; focus the whole mind so that the statue becomes an image INSIDE. Then
close your eyes. Remove your eyes from the statue, then close them. And then
remove the image, wipe it out completely.
The you are there in your TOTAL ALONENESS, in your TOTAL PURITY, in your
TOTAL INNOCENCE. Realizing that is FREEDOM, Realizing that is TRUTH.
The same technique can be applied in the sacred Sai Kulvant Hall: Bhagavan
is seated on his Chair right in front of us.[ Here we have to understand the
reality that Bhagavan is not just His body, He is GOD beyond form, He is the
FORMLESS BRAHMAN the SUPREME BLISS ]. Let us “ Look upon Bhagavan’s
radiant, beautiful, smiling face. We focus our whole minds so that
Bhagavan’s Form becomes an Image inside us. Then we close our eyes, then we
slowly withdraw our thought from Bhagavan’s form/ image., we completely
remove the Form of Bhagavan from inside (of us.). Then everyone of us
individually is there in that Total Aloneness, in Total Purity, in Total
Innocence. Then what happens can not be expressed or explained. In one’s
Total Aloneness, Total Purity, Total Innocence, the Supreme Blissful Brahman
(= Formless Bhagavan ) is EXPERIENCED ( by us) as SUPREME BLISS,
My humble pranams at the Lotus Feet of Bhagavan.
