Query: You said most
gurus followed Bhakti yoga but the few I know followed Kriya Yoga - as propounded in Bhagavad Gita and
revived by Mahaavtar Babaji.
The gist of all forms of Yoga always remains the same! Why? Every form of
Yoga truly leads one towards the process of breathing. Who breathes... the human being or the soul atman
within! Truly it is our soul atman that seems to reside within our heart needs breathing! The moment flow of
air to the heart stops... the soul atman leaves the body to decay and
If the breathing process is the connecting link between human beings (the
manifested form) and our soul atman within... it is best we traverse the path of breathing to reach the
source! Lying in the Shavasana pose of Yoga if we truly concentrate on our breathing process... we would
ultimately realize God one-day.
Name it Kriya Yoga, Raja Yoga, pranayama or vipassana... the essence of
all is the same! The paths can be slightly different... the mode of conducting Yoga can be different... the
gist of all always remains the same... reaching the end of breathing point... our soul atman within! It is
only lying in Shavasana pose of Yoga one realizes the shallowness of ephemeral life!
Mahaavtar Babaji or any other Saint for that purpose did not realize God!
One look at their literature if any makes everything clear. I have read the Autobiography of a Yogi three
times... it clearly points out why Paramhansa Yogananda and his revered gurus did not gain enlightenment. For
an enlightened soul... the writings must be devoid of impurities in totality!
In the house of God there is no place for miracles. Miracles are not
there to be! All is based on the process of karma. If we think I can give enlightenment to one... it is a
misnomer! It is not the capability of the spiritual Master... the spiritual guru that is questionable... it
is the karma of the student... the level of the student that decides ones future course of life!
We simply cannot expect mangoes to grow on a guava tree! As we sow so
shall we reap... nothing less or more! Once a human being with a dead child in his hand approached Mahavira
the 24 Tirthankara of Jainism with the request... "O enlightened one; if you just touch the body of my
child... he would breathe again! Mahavira bluntly replied... there is no place for miracles in his life...
please go back!
Whenever a saint talks of miracles... the hollowness of the preaching
become clear! The entire Cosmos is directly governed by the doctrine of karma. As we perform... as we enact
our karma in present life... so shall be our future! A commoner who married the Princess ultimately owed its
existence not in a miracle but the karma performed!
Once a laborers son happened to sight the Princess of the state even
though commoners were banned to have a glimpse of the elite! The laborers son immediately expressed to his
mother that he would marry the Princess in this very life come whatever may! The laborers son even though
born in a lower caste had the makings of a king.
He never dreamt for the sake of it. Inherently he realized the absolute
truth of life. He was born in the laborers house owing to the karma of the past lives... the residual balance
of karma of all the previous manifestations! But if requisite karma be performed in present life that one
could marry the Princess of the state... be that so!
The intelligent boy... the laborers son truly worked hard in this
direction. He ultimately manifested his destiny and settled down in life with Princess as his wife! In
whatever stage of life one is... whatever our karma index... the moment one reaches the karma index of
8.400000... One finally transcends the physical manifest life forever!
The house of God is never disordered at any stage as has been expressed
by the ignorant scientist... the famous physicist Stephen Hawking in his famous book, "a brief history of
time". The poor Stephen Hawking fails to realize that it is beyond his capability to understand the Wisdom of
the Cosmos... the hidden pearls of wisdom contained in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita!
It is only after gaining enlightenment... the complete picture of the
entire Cosmos emerges before one. The truth behind big bang theory, why God Almighty created the Cosmos, the
definition of God Almighty, the doctrine of karma, human beings... the highest manifest stage in the cosmic
life cycle... all becomes absolutely clear!
It is only when one transcends the ephemeral world governed by five
senses and the mind... one gains absolute purity! The moment the soul atman regains its original pure
pristine form... it is the end of cosmic life for that soul atman forever! The kingdom of God... the house of
God (aka Vaikuntha in Hinduism) is a place of no return!
May God bless you!
