Lokesh: Jai Sadguru Dev Vandan. I want to do anubhav of soul. How to do that? Kindly give your valuable advice.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Experience of soul is not an easy task. Yet, everyone is still entitled to realise God and for the said very purpose, the God has awarded us with human body.
Yogi, by hard practice of Ashtang Yoga Philosophy and Vedic knowledge becomes able to awaken the kundalini and hence realises himself as well as God.
Patanjali Rishi in Yog Shastra Sutra 1/2 state that to destroy the Chitta Vritti (effect of good/bad deeds on chitta and desires) is called Yog i.e., realization of soul as well as God. I mean to say who would now like to study Vedas, to do daily hawan, to make contact with learned acharya of Vedas and Yoga philosophy and do hard practice of ashtang Yoga Philosophy after knowing it. So, the brave boys/girls, man/woman like in ancient times, if pay their attention along with family duties, they only can realise.
Mantras to awaken kundalani
Mere study of Vedas and other holy Granths does not correct the purpose until we put into practice the preach given therein, in daily life. And realization is only possible after tapsya like Yajyen, daily worship, brahmcharya and daily hard yoga practice etc., according to four Vedas and Patanjal Yog Darshan. Based on my personal experience, it is not an easy task to awaken the kundalni. I can only tell here that kundalni is a part of body and it reaches at murdha to open the path of brahmrandra, where a yogi realizes God.
Murdha is a point at forehead, between two eyebrows, where ida and pingla nadi meet. Kundalni is awakened after long Ashtang yoga practice. Some say that it is a matter of three months. See that God is called Atithi in Vedas. Atithi means He who has no date of His visit i.e., you can not fix date for appointment. If we say for three months or so, it means we have ordered God to be present before us within three months where as Atharvaveda mantra 4/30/3 states that after seeing the good quality and tapsya etc., of an aspirant God Himself makes the aspirant able to realize Him at any date which is fixed by God and not by man. Hence time bound Kundalni Jagran is not possible as no one can give order to God.
Geeta book says, “BAHUNAAM JANAMNA ANTE” means after so many births aspirants realizes God. So yoga should be learnt and practised faithfully. It is up to God and Yogeshwar Acharya when kundalini is awakened because awakened means realization of God. So one must listen to Vedas, must do the pious deeds according to Vedas, must do daily hawan, Yajyen, must recite holy name of God daily and must do hard practice of Ashtang Yoga under guidance of learned Acharya so that his kundalini gets awakened.
Kiran R. Das: Namaste guruji charna sparsh, once again happy new year. you always mention that “marriage” is in the hand of almighty God will you explain it?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you.
Yes, I say that marriage is in the hands of Almighty God i.e., God gives the result of our previous lives’ deeds and accordingly marriages are settled, whether good or bad, being result of good or bad deeds etc. However, one should do pious deeds in present life, especially daily worship of God according to Vedas, then the result of bad deeds of previous and present life gets destroyed and the devotee makes his future bright.
You see, God helps those who help themselves. So, in case of marriage too, daily hawan, name jaap of God, listening of Vedas’ preach from a learned acharya destroys the obstacle and good match becomes available i.e., if there exists effect of any previous lives’ deeds then the effect gets over.
That is why, I say that marriage is in the hands of God. Otherwise, there is no hand of God as such, because He is Formless. Actually, God’s blessings are required through His worship.
