MINDFULNESS MEDITATION

Question: Dear Master, please clarify this issue: when I meditate and concentrate on the chakras, I feel only Sahasrara and nothing else.
Answer: It is very important to feel all seven chakras. Mindfulness in life and meditation also correlates with the sensation of the chakras. Most practitioners cannot feel all the chakras, most often everyone starts by feeling at least one or two chakras. If you only feel the Sahasrara chakra, it means that you have strong spiritual tendencies, which is wonderful. However, it is important to work out other chakras, otherwise you will not be able to reveal many important qualities and aspects in your life, such as family life, work with the energy of money, creative self-realization. It is important to learn and regularly practice the authentic techniques of Kriya Yoga, which will help you to develop all the chekras harmoniously. Any deep result takes time and diligence, without which it is impossible to really work with the chakras.
Question:
In the Holy Gospel, Jesus repeatedly emphasizes that his mission is largely for sinners. Jesus greatly appreciated when sinners sincerely repent
Answer:
In my understanding, Jesus Christ came for everyone who was ready to hear and recognize him. Everyone has sins. Who is sinless? The basic principles of Christianity are love for God and love for one's neighbor. To repent of sins is just the first step, it is important to learn not to make mistakes in the future. You should learn the lessons from your not good actions, and start living in a new way.

Question:
Very soon, on November 18, Kartikai Deepam will be celebrated in Tiruvannamalai on Mount Arunachala. A big request to tell about its deep symbolism and why it goes exactly ten days. According to legend, Kartikeya appeared as energy from the 3rd eye of Shiva, it broke into six parts and turned into babies who were fed by the sixth Pleiadian nymphs. Is there a connection between these Pleiades and the six points in the head that we work through in the Uttara Kriya meditation? Kartikeya as the lost seventh star?
Answer:
Mount Arunachala is one of the two most sacred mountains in the East. Kailash and Arunachala, two special places of power. The peculiarity of Arunachala lies in the fact that it is located in the south of India, it is easy to come there, there are many comfortable hotels. Kailash is located in the high mountains of Tibet, where the climate is harsh and there are no facilities for pilgrims. Arunachala is an amazing place of power, where I have been many times and lived for a long time. In this region of India, the most important deity is Shiva, but also his eldest son, the god Kartikeya. Kartikeya is also called by other names: Skanda, Murugan and Shanmugam. This deity corresponds to the number six, which corresponds to the Ajna chakra, as well as the unity of the male and female principles. The unity of the male and female principles is manifested in the six-pointed star, which also symbolizes the god Kartikey.

The top of Mount Arunachala is a symbol of the Sahasrara chakra, the energy-informational point where the Absolute Consciousness is present. You are right, in Uttara Kriya meditation we also work on six points in the central part of the brain. There are many legends about how the god Kartikey appeared. According to one legend, he appeared from the third eye of the god Shiva. All holidays and religious festivals in the Vedic tradition are calculated according to the lunar calendar. This calendar has its own system of months, which are associated with different deities and qualities. The main holidays near Mount Arunachala are determined in accordance with the lunar days, the duration of the festival itself is also determined astronomically. All these factors help people who take part in the festival program to experience spiritual experiences and awareness.

Question:
Sathya Sai Sai gave the usual basic information about Jesus. Why did Sathya Sai Baba constantly talk about Ramakrishna/Vivekananda and (seem) never mention Yogananda and the teachers of his lineage at all?
Answer:
Sathya Sai Baba spoke to a very wide audience, so he talked about Krishna, Buddha, Jesus Christ, Vivekananda. Sathya Sai Sai did not really talk about Paramahamsya Yogananda in lectures, but he could talk about him during personal communication. I think that for a wide Indian audience it is not very clear who Yogananda is, but Vivekananda is quite well known. So the explanation is very simple. One should not think that Sathya Sai Sai did not speak about some saints because he did not consider them significant. It was much easier for him to preach in lectures referring to the most famous saints for a wide Indian audience.

Question:
All of us here at the seminar gathered in past lives have already met.
Answer:
Yes, obviously we've all met in past lives. The universe isn't really that big, so if you think about your past few million lifetimes, it's obvious that we've all been friends and relatives many times over. It is also important to remember that anyone attending a Kriya Yoga and Bija Mantram meditation workshop is obviously spiritually connected to these traditions. Kriya Yoga masters such as Lahiri Mahasaya and Yogi Ramaiah have said that it is impossible to come to a Kriya Yoga meditation workshop unless one has a strong spiritual connection to spiritual practices, which means that we have all met in many past lives.

Question:
Techniques must be recorded, this to some extent excludes the principle of "damaged phone"
Answer:
In the tradition of Kriya Yoga and Tantra, it was forbidden for centuries to write down techniques, which is why ancient texts, with rare exceptions, did not describe the details of techniques. Obviously, some details are described in the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, and even then not so much. In our modern era of information dissemination, many Masters are trying to detail the details of Kriya Yoga meditation techniques. Perhaps this is correct in order to avoid a "broken phone". At the same time, it should be remembered that it is impossible to study Kriya Yoga meditation from books, it is necessary to study this most complex science under the guidance of a Master, to receive Initiation, and it is simply impossible to explain many details. At the same time, I believe that in our era it is possible and necessary to disseminate more knowledge and practices in the public domain.

Question:
Hello Svyatoslav. The need for self-realization, what it is, and what can serve as a criterion for satisfying this need (of course, there will be no questions when you rise, so to speak, completely), but along the way, we are not always omniscient. Is this path linear? And if a person does have a choice, then can he satisfy all needs (for example, social status) simply by changing his perception and ignoring pressure from outside the same society, that is, to establish his values and move on to inner work?
Answer:
For most people, the beginning of the spiritual path is liberation from various sufferings: illnesses, social crises, depressions, family troubles, ruin, phobias, not understanding one's destiny, etc. In order to get rid of many problems and suffering, people begin to practice meditation and mantras, and also try to understand the programs of their subconscious. To do this, people begin to study Vedic philosophy and psychology, consult astrologers. At a higher level, people begin to practice meditation and mantras in order to achieve some goals. Next comes the idea of attaining enlightenment. In fact, for many, the idea of achieving enlightenment is similar to the idea of social success: you want to gain and achieve something. In fact, enlightenment is not an achievement, but the loss of everything superfluous, that is, the loss of false self-identifications. False self-identifications are the perception of oneself as a physical body, oneself as a stream of thoughts, this is the perception of oneself as memories, internal dialogue, social status, ethnicity, and finally the perception of oneself as a separately existing person. All this is false, because in fact each person carries within himself the infinite potential of the Absolute Divine Consciousness.

Question:
Dear friends, often, when you ask Svyatoslav questions, you give a fairly detailed description of your personal spiritual experience, which is voiced publicly, which is a mistake. I would like to warn you against the losses that you may incur in the case when you tell what is intended from above for you personally. Unfortunately, it is a common mistake when a person makes personal spiritual experience public, which leads to the loss of spiritual achievement. You "splash" the energy that is needed to realize this experience. Probably, years later it will be important to share this experience. Sathya Sai Baba said more than once that to receive gifts (in the form of energies or abilities) from Him is only the first step, one must also be able to save them. In the overwhelming majority of cases, you need to tell the spiritual mentor, but personally to him.
Answer:
I completely agree with you, you need to be very careful and try to talk less about your inner mystical experiences of Divinity. You are absolutely correct in citing the words of Sathya Sai Baba about how important it is not only to gain blessings, but also to be able to keep them. At a higher level of practice, sharing stories about your inner experiences is extremely important, because it becomes your service. When your spiritual experience becomes very deep, then you can share it and not lose your own state. In order to save others, you must first save yourself. In order to share food, you must first have it in abundance.

Question:
Ganapati Swami invited all the devotees to reincarnate with him in the coming Treta Yuga, is this possible?
Answer:
Ganapati Swami is an incarnated Deity, so for him what is impossible for ordinary people is possible. What does Treta Yuga mean? According to Vedic philosophy, there are four epochs that succeed one another. Satya Yuga is a golden age when virtue flourishes, people are engaged in spiritual practices, almost all of them are enlightened, and society is built on the principles of righteousness and justice. Next comes the Treta Yuga - the silver age, then comes the Dvapara Yuga (the current era), and the blackest era, ignorance and barbarism is called the Kali Yuga. How can Ganapati Swamiji invite all his disciples to incarnate with him in the next age? Is it possible? Of course, yes, because the intention of any person has a great energy power. You may not always understand this, but any of your intentions will come true sooner or later. Karma is always created primarily at the level of thought. Therefore, you should be careful at the level of thoughts and images that arise in your mind. It is obvious that it is very correct and good to create the right positive intention.
