    Meditative Living with Swami Shivananda Giri

    in Spirituality

    Swami continues with Verse 122 from THE CHIDAKASHA GITA OF BHAGAWAN NITYANANDA OF GANESHPURI.  Here is the first verse to be discussed...


    122. OMKAR is the elite of all. Omkar is like the dawn of the sun. Omkar is the witness of all. Omkar is the most frightful of all forms. Omkar is fire. There is not a greater thing in this universe than fire. Fire is pervading both internally and externally. In the middle is the earth. The earth is below. Air is above. Air pervades the universe. The universe is in air. The first is air. The second is fire. The first is discrimination. The second is sound. Soundlessness is in the form of air. Soundlessness is eternal bliss.  It is existence, knowledge, bliss. The Self should be merged in soundlessness. The visible world is in the Self. When SAT unites with CHIT, Ananda is realized. This Ananda is Vivekananda, Chaitanyananda, Sri Brahmananda, Paramananda, Sri Nityananda, and Satchitananda. What is manliness is the realization of this Ananda. This is Brahma Jnana, Yoga Jnana, Kala Jnana. This Trikala Jnana is in the heart. In the heart is Mukti. Nityananda Mukti is in the heart.

    Swami continues with Verse 86 from THE CHIDAKASHA GITA OF BHAGAWAN NITYANANDA OF GANESHPURI.  Here is the first verse to be discussed...


    86. The repetition of Rama is true delight. It is the eternal Atma delight, eternal true delight, internal Atma delight, Kundalini grandeur delight. The lord of mind is Rama. Rama means Atman. That which governs the ten Indriyas (five Karmendriyas and five Jnyanendriyas) is Rama. Ravana means all the wicked qualities in us. Sita means Chitta. Lakshmana means attention (thought control). Krishna means introspection. This introspection is the eternal Atma delight.

    Swami continues with Verse 101 from THE CHIDAKASHA GITA OF BHAGAWAN NITYANANDA OF GANESHPURI.  Here is the first verse to be discussed...


    101. When a boy has passed the first standard and he goes to the second standard, books of the first standard are no longer required by him. When a man is in sound sleep, he sees neither the stars nor the sun nor the moon. He is aware of nothing. Then the mind is nill. Sleep is a subtle condition. It is not gross. In sound sleep we are not conscious of the body. Then we are conscious of Atma alone. We will have sleep when Prana is in a fixed plane in the body. When the ego is completely destroyed, everything seems to be like “reflection.” The mind’s delusion is not permanent. It is not Shiva.
