The Yugas – Great Cycles of Time

Karma and Reincarnation, Spiritual Awakening

The yugas (Cycles of tyme) are ancient calculation of time that describe a cycle of human development that not only predicts highly advanced ages in the future, but indicates that they have occurred in the past as well. The yuga cycle includes ages less advanced than our own, ages full of ignorance and darkness, and ages so much more advanced than our own present age that we cannot fully comprehend them. And, as is implicit in the meaning of the word “cycle,” we learn that once mankind’s peak is reached, there is inevitable decline; and once mankind’s darkest point is reached, there is inevitable advancement.

The yugas are a tradition in India that goes back thousands of years. The great yoga guru Swami Sri Yukteswar does not base his understanding of the yugas on tradition alone, however. Sri Yukteswar’s insights spring from self-realization. His understanding of the yugas is born of deep intuition. Yet his explanation is clear and succinct, and, as he intended, approachable by the Western scientific mind.

How to Open Your Third Eye

Spiritual Awakening

spiritual-eyeI want to talk to you today about how you can open your spiritual eye. Or the third eye is like some people call it.

Before I start I want to explain to those of you who don’t know what exactly the spiritual eye is.

The spiritual eye which is also called the Christ center or the Ajna chakra is located at this point between the eyebrows. The conciseness of every enlightened being is always centered at that point. I am sure you have noticed pictures or paintings of yogis and saints how they are often depicted with their eyes looking upward. That’s because all their actions, thoughts and perceptions originate from this point, they are always merged in the light, in the infinite bliss.

As yogis and spiritual seekers our life goal must be to get to this center and live with that conciseness.

The vision of the inner light comes in deep meditation. This light is beheld exactly there at the point between the eyebrows, with your spiritual eye. Once the vision of light in the forehead takes shape, once the mind is deeply concentrated, it becomes the single eye or the spiritual eye.

In Mathew 6:22 Jesus says; the light of the body is the eye; If therefore Thyne eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light”

The spiritual eye is not something that is imaginary. It is something we actually see in deep meditation. You can only see it however when you are spiritually advanced and your thoughts are completely stilled. Read More

5 Signs of Your Past Life

Karma and Reincarnation, Spiritual Awakening

123Today I want to talk to you about signs of your past life experience. How do you know your past life? How do you even sure you had a past life and what where you in your past life? Are you influenced by your past life experiences and if yes, how you can use this fact to your advantage. I will talk about all these and many more later on in this video so stay with me till the end.

Truth is we live many lives, the yoga scriptures teach that it takes from 5 to 8 million lives to reach even a human level. A soul goes through a long journey toward enlightenment changing many forms and physical bodies, until it learns its lessons and reaches the final stage of complete liberation from the wheel of birth and rebirth in the infinite bliss in God, or moksha as it called in Sanskrit.

In the Bhagavad Gita one of the greatest yoga scriptures when God in the form of Lord Krishna teaches yoga to his friend Arjuna when Arjuna was lamenting that he has to fight against and kill its own brothers and kinsmen then Lord Krishna says to him the following; my dear Arjuna, while speaking learned words, you are mourning for what is not worthy of grief. Those who are wise lament neither for the living nor for the dead. Never was there a time when I did not exist, nor you, nor all these kings; nor in the future shall any of us cease to be. As the embodied soul continuously passes, in this body, from boyhood to youth to old age, the soul similarly passes into another body at death. A sober person is not bewildered by such a change”. As the embodied soul continuously passes, in this body, from boyhood to youth to old age, the soul similarly passes into another body at death. A sober person is not bewildered by such a change. Those who are seers of the truth have concluded that of the nonexistent material body there is no endurance and of the eternal [the soul] there is no change. This they have concluded by studying the nature of both. That which pervades the entire body you should know to be Read More

#1 Way to Remove Bad Karma

Karma and Reincarnation, Spiritual Awakening

karma-and-reincarnationToday I want to talk to you about how to remove your bad karma. But first, let me tell you what karma is. Well, karma is essentially action and the consequence of that action. Cause and effect. It’s one of the Divine laws that is part of the whole creation. Every physical it’s noting but just a grosser expression of some Divine spiritual law. For example the law of Physics of Newton, which you may very well know which says every action has its equal or opposite reaction, is just a grosser expression of the more subtle law of Karma. The law of gravity is based on love and attraction. Atoms in the Universe are attracted by each other and held together by Love. The great love of the infinite Spirit from which everything emanates.

In the Bhagavad Gita the one of the Greatest yoga scriptures of all times, Lord Krishna who represents God, teaches his friend Arjuna yoga who represents the yoga devotee, says;

He who knows Me as unborn and beginningless, as the great Lord of the worlds, he, among mortals, is undeluded; and he is liberated from all sins.

Intellect, wisdom, non-delusion, forgiveness, truth, self-restraint, calmness, happiness, pain, birth or existence, death or non-existence, fear and also fearlessness, Non-injury, equanimity, contentment, austerity, fame, beneficence, ill-fame—(these) different kinds of qualities of beings arise from Me alone.
