Will You Come Back Guruji - Part 1

Thursday, March 29, 2012

Part 1

Guruji in the horizon is a short story about a rustic boy ultimately transforming into a Spiritual Guru. The story will be published as a series, containing a number of parts. Here is part 1:

It is yet another day.  I always like the dawn - the creeks of birds, misty leaves and the redness of the dawn. Red stands for compassion.  I used to wonder how the sun being so red at the time of dawn gradually turns white.  I live near river Cauvery. It is good to walk on the sandy river bed.  The tiny sand grains acupressure my feet and I used to enjoy this.  The river was flowing with the rustic sound that changes every minute.  In the river bed, I perform my yogic exercises.  I prefer the river bed as you have plenty of natural unpolluted air around.  The more oxygen intake helps to rejuvenate the body better. When I begin ...Read More

Sri Durga Saptashati - Sri Siddha Kunjika Stotram

Friday, October 05, 2018

Śrī Siddhakuñjikā Stotram ( श्री सिद्धकुञ्जिका स्तोत्रम् )

Prologue:- The Śrī Devī Mahatmyaṃ, an abstract from Mārkaṇḍeya Purāṇa, is a grand compilation of a war between good and evil, the fight between Goddess Durgā and the demonic asura Mahiṣāsurā.  Spiritually, this applies to the removal of all ills, such as lust, greed, anger, laziness, constant wavering of mind, etc. impacting our spiritual ascension. The Śrī Devī Mahatmyaṃ, also called Caṇḍī Pāṭha or Durgā Saptaśati, consists of 700 verses or ślokas, each of which is considered very sacred and has a material and spiritual purpose associated with it. One who recites the entire 700 verses periodically, gains immense happiness and finally gains eligibility and inclination towards self-realization. In total, the Śrī Devī Mahatmyaṃ is an adulation of the Divine Feminine. It is an outpouring of selfless devotion and surrender to the Divine Mother, seen as a representation of the infinite and everlasting energy and bliss.

Śrī Siddhakuñjikā Stotram, is a sacred hymn that is recited prior to the recitation of Śrī Durgā Saptaśati and is also a pre-requisite for those interested in reciting one of the most powerful mantras - Śrī Caṇḍī Navākṣarī Mantra.  It needs to be noted that the bīja-s or mantra seed syllables of this stotram, reference the Dasamahāvidyā-s or the ten aspects of the Divine Mother, such as the references to Goddesses Kāli with the krīm̐ bīja, Dhūmāvati as Dhūrjaṭa by the dhūm̐ bīja, Kamalātmikā as Mahālakṣmī by the klīm̐ bīja, Bhuvaneśvarī by the hrīm̐ bīja, etc. The mātṛkā-s or the aspects of the Divine Mother ruling the letters of the Sanskrit Alphabet from ‘a’(अ) to ‘kṣa’(क्ष), constitute the bhūta lipi, which is used in the life-infusing (prāṇa pratiṣṭha) ritual. Reference is made to the mātṛkā-s, for infusing life to the Śrī Durgā Saptaśati and the Śrī Caṇḍī Navākṣarī Mantra.

The word kuñjikā, refers to the One who has the keys to unlock the mystic secrets of the Creation. It is therefore of great and immense value, to recite this stotram on its own and also as a pre-requisite for the sacred 700 verses of Śrī Devī Mahatmyaṃ. A mere recitation is not sufficient, but fully comprehending the meaning and performing the sādhana, will definitely provide fruitful results.

There are primarily two variations of the Stotram specified in ...Read More

MINDFULNESS AND CONCENTRATIVE MEDITATION

Saturday, December 02, 2017

This article is authored by Dr. L. Gandhi Bhaskar Patrudu, MBBS, MD (Physiology), MA (Psychology), M.Sc (Biotechnology), Dip in Yoga. He is an Assistant professor of Physiology.

Recently I got some insights about the use of mindfulness and concentrative meditation in our daily lives.  In this article I want to share these insights.  In mindfulness there is some duality. You are centered on your true state (consciousness) and witness everything which is not you (emotions, thoughts etc). But in deep concentration or Samadhi there is no duality.  You lose awareness of ...Read More

AVADHŪTA GĪTĀ - 7

Sunday, March 12, 2017

Bhagavān Dattātreya continues:  

Upaniṣad-s explain how māyā projects objects as different things from Brahman (It is the māyā that makes us to think that the objects we see are real and different from Brahman; the fact is that everything is Brahman, hence It is called Omnipresent or all pervasive). Brahman is not divisible (hence omnipresent) and hence, there cannot be any comparison for a non-dual Brahman (comparison is possible only if more than one object is present). It is free from actions ...Read More

PATANJALI YOGA SUTRAS - 10

Sunday, May 07, 2017

Samādhi is attained through the mind that is free from all kinds of thought processes or desires. If the mind has traces of thought processes or desires, they will disturb samādhi after sometime. First ten or fifteen minutes of samādhi is important. Thoughts, if any, compromise the quality of samādhi during this time. (Different types of samādhi-s are discussed in GURUJI SPEAKS). Patañjali speaks about dharmamegha samādhi ...Read More

Theory And Practice of Kundalini Meditation - Introduction

Saturday, July 13, 2013

Kuṇḍalinī is not just a force, but Parāśakti Herself in Her subtlest form. It is one of the quickest methods to liberation. Even without practicing kuṇḍalinī, She ascends to higher chakras depending upon one’s level of love (the highest form of devotion) for Her. Ascension of kuṇḍalinī is directly related to the purity level of one’s mind. Yoga Cūḍāmaṇi Upaniṣad talks abou90t the importance of kuṇḍalinī. Verse 37 says, “Kuṇḍalinī rests in the passage of Brahman. If one goes through this passage, Brahman is attained.” Passage of Brahman that is referred here ...Read More

ATMA BODHA - THE EPILOGUE

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Śaṃkarācārya who had authored many works on dvaita or dualism such as Saundaryalaharī, etc. had also authored Supreme Advaita Scriptures or non-dualistic Scriptures like Ātmabodhaḥ, Tattvabodhaḥ, Vivekacūḍamaṇi, etc. What is the need for Śaṃkarācārya to author both dualistic and non-dualistic Scriptures? He was a loka Guru (Guru for the world) and he had the dual responsibility of developing bhakti (devotion) and at the same time, leading elevated souls to the path of ...Read More

Spiritual Journey - 20

Sunday, January 01, 2017

Avadhūta and Paramahaṁsa are essentially jīvanmukta-s. After evolving into a jīvanmukta, one decides how he or she pursues his or her life, till he or she becomes videhamukta (mokṣa – after death). Only a yogi can evolve into a jīvanmukta. A perfect yogi is the one, who has realized the Self within. He is shaped into a yogi by his Guru, without whom, imparting higher spiritual knowledge and practice is not possible. All Advaita Scriptures ultimately convey that Brahman is within and what is within, pervades the entire universe. This essence is conveyed to his disciples by a Guru. There are hundreds of Scriptures in Advaita such as Upaniṣad-s, Bhagavad Gītā, Yoga Vāsiṣṭha, Pañcadaśi, etc. Each of these Scriptures reveal Brahman ...Read More
