THE HISTORY OF MILAREPA

MILAREPA THE GURU

MILAREPA AND MARPA

"Life is short and the time of death is uncertain; so apply yourself to meditation. Avoid doing evil, and acquire merit, to the best of your ability, even at the cost of life itself. In short: Act so that you have no cause to be ashamed of yourselves and hold fast to this rule"

Milarepa, Yogi of Tibet


According to a blessing Milarepa uttered towards the end of his life, anyone who but hears the name Milarepa even once attracts an instant blessing and will not take rebirth in a lower state of existence during seven consecutive lifetimes. This was prophesied by Saints and Buddhas of the past even before his lifetime.


Milarepa of Tibet
Milarepa is one of the most widely known Tibetan Saints. In a superhuman effort, he rose above the miseries of his younger life and with the help of his Guru, Marpa the Translator, took to a solitary life of meditation until he had achieved the pinnacle of the enlightened state, never to be born again into the Samsara (whirlpool of life and death) of worldly existence. Out of compassion for humanity, he undertook the most rigid asceticism to reach the Buddhic state of enlightenment and to pass his accomplishments on to the rest of humanity. His spiritual lineage was passed along to his chief disciples, Gambopa and Rechung. It was Rechung who recorded in detail the incidents of Milarepa's life for posterity. The narrative of his life has thus been passed down through almost a millennium of time and has become an integral part of Tibetan culture. In addition to Rechung's narrative of his life, summarized below, Milarepa extemporaneously composed innumerable songs throughout his life relevant to the dramatic turns of events of himself and his disciples in accordance with an art form that was in practice at the time. These songs have been widely sung and studied in Tibet ever since and have been recorded as the Hundred Thousand Songs of Milarepa. His faithful devotion, boundless religious zeal, monumental forbearance, superhuman perseverance, and ultimate final attainment are a great inspiration today for all. His auspicious life illumined the Buddhist faith and brought the light of wisdom to sentient beings everywhere.


The Life of Milarepa
Milarepa was born into the family of Mila-Dorje-Senge in the year 1052. His father was a trader in wool and had become wealthy by the standards of the time when his wife bore a son. The son was named Thopaga which means delightful to hear, and Thopaga, later known as Mila-repa (Mila, the cotton clad), lived up to his name as he had a beautiful voice and charmed his companions with his singing. The family lived in a large stone house that consisted of three stories held in place by a large central pillar and supporting columns - a mansion in comparison to the modest homes of his neighbors. The brother and sister of Milarepa's father had also settled in the area along with their families, and the clan would often congregate at the great stone house of Mila-Dorje-Senge. The family was well to do and generous and became the darling of all the relatives and neighbors in the area. They would often gather at the house to enjoy feasts. The gathering of friends and neighbors would often fawn over the small children - the young son Milarepa (then called Thopaga), and his sister, Peta who was four years younger. During this period the family enjoyed the admiration and attention of their neighbors, ate only the finest food and wore nothing but fancy clothes and jewelry.

About this time the father, Mila-Dorje-Senge, became gravely ill and accepting his impending death, called together the extended family and made known to all that he wanted his entire estate and all possessions put into the care of his brother and sister until such time as Milarepa had grown and married Zesay, one of the neighboring girls who had been betrothed to him in childhood according to the tradition of the times.

After the fathers death, however, Milarepa's greedy Aunt and Uncle who had been given charge of the property, divided the estate between them, dispossessing Milarepa, his mother, and sister Peta of all their worldly possessions. They were forced to live with them in the lowest accommodations and were given only coarse food and even made to work in the fields. Over the ensuing years their health suffered, their clothes were rough and tattered, the heads of the two children became invaded by lice. The mother and her two children who had formerly been the darlings of the village, now became objects of derision and abuse by all, who now spurned and ridiculed them.


A Rock Monastery in Tibet "All worldly pursuits have but the one unavoidable end, which is sorrow: acquisitions end in dispersion; buildings in destruction; meetings in separation; births, in death. Knowing this, one should, from the very first, renounce acquisition and heaping up, and building, and meeting; and faithful to the commands of an eminent guru, set about realizing the Truth (which has no birth or death)."

Milarepa



MILAREPA AND THE CHAKRAS ABOVE THE HEAD


When Milarepa reached his fifteenth year, his mother decided on a plan to recover the lost inheritance. She scraped together whatever resources she could borrow from neighbors and relatives and put on a feast, inviting all who had been present when her husband had died and made known his last wishes. As the assembled neighbors and relatives were feasting and drinking large cups of chang (fermented barley), she stood up and recounted all that her husband had said on his deathbed, reminding her husband's brother and sister that they were to be only caretakers of the estate. Now that Milarepa had attained his majority, she requested that all the property be restored to them

But the greedy Aunt and Uncle now claimed that they had been the original owners and had only loaned the property to the Mila-Dorje-Senge family and thus, Milarapa and his mother had no real claim on the property. The aunt and uncle now began indignantly slapping Milarepa's mother and the two children, calling them ungrateful wretches to act thus after accepting the charity of living with them and eating their food. Thus they drove them out of the large stone house to let the mother and children fend for themselves.

Some of the relatives and neighbors were sympathetic to Milarepa's family, but they were not sufficient in strength or numbers to oppose the clan of the Aunt and Uncle. And so it happened that the three were turned out of their own house. After that they lived meagerly, supported by the relatives of Milarepa's mother and charity from Zesay's family. The three were forced to work hard, exchanging their labor for a bit of food or a scrap of clothing. During this time they found no joy in their lives whatsoever.




One day Milarepa happened to be singing loudly, proud of his voice, when his mother overheard him and was stung to the quick by his unseemly outburst of happiness. She immediately berated him for his transgression in the face of the relentless misery of their existence. She thought over the situation and decided to take action. She wanted him to learn the black arts of sorcery in order to wreak vengeance on their enemies, the greedy Aunt and Uncle. Milarepa agreed that he would apply himself under a good teacher if his mother provided him with fees for the apprenticeship and living expenses. In order to do so, She sold half of the small plot of property that had belonged to her side of the family before her marriage and sent Milarapa off with money. Before he took her leave she very solemnly told him that she would kill herself in his very presence if he returned without having learned sufficient magic to be able to wreak some havoc on their enemies.

Milarepa traveled a distance away to a Lama who was known about the countryside as one who was proficient in the black arts. Along with some other young apprentices, Milarepa spent nearly a year learning mostly ineffectual magic rites with high sounding titles. At the end of the year, the pupils were sent off and told that if they applied themselves diligently they would succeed in their quest. Milarepa accompanied his companions for a time as they took their leave but then turned back to the Lama's house. Along the way, he collected a quantity of manure and dug a hole and buried it in the Lama's garden as a small gift to his teacher. The Lama observed this from his roof, and is said to have remarked that he had never had a pupil more affectionate and industrious as the young lad Milarepa was. The latter, went in to the Lama's presence and told him of his mother's vow to kill herself in his presence if he didn't learn some real magic. He then recounted his tale of woe in all its detail to the Lama who was greatly saddened by the story. The Lama decided to confer some real power on Milarepa but he wanted to make sure that the magic would not be used unjustly so he sent a fleet disciple to Milarepa's homeland to find out if the tale was true. On the disciples return, he agreed to show him the true and potent rituals for invoking the Tutelary deities to take revenge.

Milarepa absorbed all the teachings thoroughly and carefully carried out the prescribed ritual for 14 days. At the end of the ritual the Tutelary deities appeared to him in a vision with the bloody heads and hearts of 35 of the relatives who had most ill-treated him. The Lama informed him that two of the guilty ones had been missed and asked Milarepa if he wanted their lives as well. He replied that he wanted them to be spared as witnesses to the power of his magic. Thus it came to pass that his two very worst enemies, the greedy Aunt and Uncle were spared from harm.

From a phenomenal aspect, the sorcery took the form of a disaster that occurred at the family wedding. All the relatives and friends who had been most offensive to him had gathered at the great stone house to celebrate the wedding. There was a big commotion outside and some of the horses kept in the yard started kicking and running about violently agitated, until one of them ran into the main supporting column of the three story house with such force that the entire house came crashing down on the wedding party with tremendous noise and force killing everyone inside except for the Aunt and Uncle.

All this was observed by some of those sympathetic to the Milarepa family who were just approaching the house. Milarepa's mother quickly learned of the catastrophe and was ecstatic with cruel joy. She came gloating over the destruction that her son had caused telling everyone what joy her son had brought to her aging heart by causing so much death and destruction. The relatives of the dead were quite upset at the tragedy and more so to learn of her gloating. They talked it over but were divided on whether to get together and kill her in revenge, or to go after her son Milarepa, who had directly caused the destruction. After due consideration they decided to find and kill the son. Soon word of their plans got back to the mother so she sent a message to her son, along with several gold pieces she got from selling the remaining half of her plot of land. In the note she described her joy at his success and requested him now to launch a powerful hail storm on the area, ruining the crops of their enemies and striking fear into their hearts so as to prevent further retaliation.

Milarepa received the note from the pilgrim courier and gave the gold pieces over to the Sorcerer-Lama, requesting him to teach him the art of launching hail storms. Armed with his new magic, Milarepa traveled incognito back to his homeland and set up his ritualistic site on a hillside overlooking the valley of his homeland below. He began his incantations and soon dark clouds began to gather and then a succession of three powerful hail storms utterly ruined the entire barley crop of that year, a crop that had promised to be one of the heaviest in years.

After the destruction, Milarepa retreated to a cave in the hillside to escape the cold wind and lit a fire for warmth. After a few hours he heard some of his former neighbors walking by the cave he had taken refuge in. They had guessed who was responsible for this fresh mischief and were immensely angered by the all destruction he had caused, first to the 35 people killed in the wedding party, and now to the season's rich harvest of barley - utterly laid waste. The men were talking amongst themselves, saying as they walked past the cave that if Milarapa fell into their hands at that very moment, their vengeance could hardly be satisfied by chopping his body into tiny bits; such was their anger. At that instant one of them spotted the fire and guessed that it was Milarepa himself taking refuge in the cave. They hurried quickly and quietly away to go gather a party to go after him. Meanwhile as soon as they had left, Milarepa made good his escape and journeyed back to the Sorcerer-Lama.

Lone Rider in Tibetan Immensity

"If you do not acquire contentment in yourselves,
Heaped-up accumulations will only enrich others.

If you do not obtain the light of Inner Peace,
Mere external ease and pleasure will become a source of pain.

If you do not suppress the Demon of Ambition,
Desire for fame will lead to ruin and to lawsuits"


Milarepa


The Lama congratulated Milarepa on his success but by now Milarapa was deeply repenting all the evil deeds his mother had urged him to commit. He longed for religion and wanted to be delivered from committing further evil acts. He worried greatly over the heavy debts of karma he had incurred through his evil actions and could think of nothing else. He wanted to ask the Lama Guru for religious instruction but didn't have the nerve to broach the subject so he stayed on, faithfully serving the Lama and waiting for an opportune moment to bring up the subject of his salvation.

The Lama now was called away to attend to one of his followers who had died after a short illness. The Lama returned lamenting that such an excellent man in the prime of his life had died so suddenly. He spoke on the transitoriness of life and the misery of this earthly existence and then started ruminating over his own life. He had spent his entire life up to that point practicing the art of dealing death and destruction and teaching those same black arts to many others. By doing so he had to take at least a portion of the karmic responsibility for all the evil acts that had come out of it.

In his mood of deep remorse, he urged Milarepa to go and seek out a teacher of the Holy Dharma and at least deliver himself and maybe even the Lama into a higher state of existence in a future life. This was precisely the opportunity Milarepa had been waiting for. He prayed to be allowed to take to the religious life and his teacher readily agreed, giving him gifts and a letter of introduction to a well known Lama versed in a doctrine called "The Great Perfection".

Milarepa went to the Lama and requested to be taught. The Lama gave him some meditation instructions and told him to go practice but after a few days, the Lama had an insight that he was not the proper teacher for Milarepa, so he sent him on to a very learned Lama he knew of named "Marpa the Translator". Marpa was known widely among other religious centers for his trips to India to procure sacred teachings which he had brought back to Tibet in large bundles of scrolls. Marpa had been initiated by the famed Naropa, a powerful Saint who had fully transferred his exalted state of enlightenment to his disciple Marpa.



Naropa, Guru of Marpa
1016 - 1100 AD.

He gained enlightenment under Tilopa.
Tilopa is believed to have been an incarnation of Amitabha - the Buddha of Boundless Light.

Milarepa

When Milarepa first heard the Lama utter the name "Marpa", he felt a thrill go through his body. Suddenly all his hairs stood on end and tears of joy started flowing from his eyes. He set out thinking of nothing else but the moment he would finally set eyes on his new guru.

Meanwhile, the day before Milarepa arrived, Marpa the Translator had a dream in which his own Guru, the Great Saint Naropa appeared to him and gave him a five pointed dorje (i.e. sceptre) made of the precious gem lapis lazuli. The dorje, however, was slightly tarnished and Naropa urged him to wash the dirt off with an elixir of holy water from a golden pot until it shone in splendour and then to raise it up upon a Banner of Victory. In his dream Marpa saw that the dorje, once polished and raised up emitted a brilliant radiance that shone on all the sentient beings in the six Lokas (the physical and spiritual realms or worlds). In his dream, the spectacle of the radiant dorje was blessed with the benedictions of the Victorious Ones (previous humanity who had passed into the state of Buddhahood, or enlightenment).

Marpa was a member of the Kargyutpa sect and one of the specialties of the lineage was to divine future events through the reading of omens. From the dream he knew that a momentous meeting with his chief disciple was about to take place and that his task was to expiate some evil karma by which the disciple had been tarnished and then to bring him to the state of enlightenment.

Marpa left his house telling his wife Damema that he was going to plow his field that day, a thing he had never done before. Marpa walked down the road a ways and kept busy at the plowing until he spied Milarepa coming up the road towards him. As soon as Milarepa approached and laid eyes on the Lama Marpa, an inexpressible bliss gripped him and for a few moments he lost consciousness of his surroundings swept up in an ecstatic state. As soon as he had recovered he addressed Marpa as Reverend Sir and asked him where he might find the faithful disciple of the famous saint Naropa who was called Marpa the translator. Milarepa added that he wanted to learn the True Doctrine by which he might obtain Deliverance in one single lifetime. At this Marpa was inwardly pleased but he showed no emotion and only said that he would procure an introduction to the Lama Marpa if only Milarepa would finish the task of plowing the field.

Marpa offered Milarepa some chang (barley beverage) as refreshment. Milarepa thanked him and drank the entire quantity of chang offered. Milarepa then plowed the field with enthusiasm and even when one of the disciples came to call him to the Lama's presence, Milarepa asked him to wait until he had finished plowing the field thoroughly and completely as requested by Marpa. Marpa took these two omens as signs of his new disciple's thoroughness and willingness to work towards the spiritual goal.

After that initial meeting began a period during which Marpa held out the goal of spiritual instruction and kept Milarepa busy at strenuous physical labours building various stone edifices. By nature Marpa was outwardly a rough and tyrannical teacher but inwardly he was all love and compassion. By the previous omens and Milarepa's recounting of his evil deeds, Marpa knew there was a great deal of evil karma to be worked out so he pretended to be always short tempered and demanding with the sincere and faithful lad. He had Milarepa build a stone structure on a high rocky ridge only to have him tear it down again, and take all the rocks and boulders back to where they were found, telling him he had changed his plans and now wanted a new structure built in another place. This was repeated on three different ridges until finally he had Milarepa build a grand many storied edifice on yet a forth ridge. Throughout the tasks, Milarepa never lost faith that he would receive the instructions he was looking for and put forth a Herculean effort, moving stones that ordinarily could only be moved by the combined strength of three men. He put forth such strenuous effort that he wore his body out until his back was one great sore from carrying rocks and mortar. His arms and legs were all cracked and bruised. Yet he continued working on, every day hoping at last to be favored with some religious instruction. Out of sympathy with his wounds, Marpa showed him how to pad his back and allowed him to rest while his body healed, but never did he allow Milarepa to avoid any of the building work that he had set out for him to complete.



Milarepa's Guru, Marpa the Translator of Lhobhrak
1012-1096 AD
Marpa made the dangerous trek to India three times during his life, each time taking back esoteric Tantric and other teachings which he translated into the Tibetan Language




THE CAVE OF MILAREPA, CHINA

Milarepa

During the years when all this building was going on, Marpa continued giving instruction to his other students. On several different occasions, various individuals among the disciples underwent initiations to receive the sacred instructions and Milarepa would try to join them but the Lama would drive him away with angry shouts and fierce beatings, causing him great mental distress. Each time Milarepa would be plunged into deep despair thinking that Marpa's actions were due only to the evil he had previously done. Sometimes Milarepa considered taking drastic action but each time he was on the verge of either taking his own life or running away, Marpa's wife, Damema, would give him sympathy and comfort, telling him the Lama would surely soon favor him with some instruction.

Soon another opportunity for instruction presented itself with the grand initiation of some disciples into the Mandala rite of Gaypa Dorje'. Marpa's wife Damema secretly gave a rare colored turquoise which had been in her family to Milarepa as an offering of the initiation fee and then urged him to take his place once again with the other participants to the initiation. When the time came for the ceremony, Marpa approached Milarepa, carefully examined the turquoise and asked him how he came to possess it. Milarepa had to confess that the Reverend Mother (Damema) had given it to him. In reply Marpa merely told him that if he had anything of his own to offer he could stay. Thinking that maybe the Lama would soften and allow him to take initiation, Milarepa stayed on a while and waited. But this only made Marpa furious (at least outwardly) and he threw young Milarepa to the ground with great force and made as if to beat him with a stick. At this the young lad felt as if his heart was breaking, and weeping openly he left the house.

The next day the Lama summoned him and asked him if his refusal to confer initiation on him had shaken his faith. Milarepa replied that he only considered that it was the result of his own evil deeds which had prevented him from taking his place in the ceremony, whereupon he burst into tears anew. At this, the Lama ordered him out in an angry voice, asking him how he dared try to blame the Lama for this by his weeping so in his presence. Again Milarepa was sunk into the utmost despair feeling as if his heart were being torn out.

Milarepa went off by himself and thinking things over he concluded that the Lama never would confer on him the spiritual truths he was seeking and that he would have to seek them elsewhere. So he sought out Damema and told her of his plans to find another Guru. She reluctantly agreed that it appeared the Lama never would give him any instruction. Therefore she gave him some relics of Marpa's Guru Naropa as a gift and sent him off to another highly developed Lama, Ngogpa, who was of the same sect as Marpa. She wrote a note asking Lama Ngogpa to teach Milarepa some religious instructions and then sealed the note with Marpa's own seal.

After a short journey to the Lama's monastery, Milarepa arrived just as Lama Ngogpa had reached an auspicious point in a lecture to a large number of his pupils. He was reading: "I am the Expounder and I am the Truth. I am the Teacher of the World. I am the Being who has passed beyond all states of worldly existence. I am the Blissful one." Just as he said these words, he looked up to see Milarepa prostrating before him in salutation. The Lama took this simple sign as an omen that Milarepa would one day become a master of all religious lore.

As soon as Milarepa presented the Lama with Naropa's sacred relics and the note requesting instruction, the Lama was overjoyed to be so favored with such auspicious gifts and he then ordered a great celebration. Lama Ngogpa had heard about the Great Sorcerer (as Milarepa was called) staying with Marpa and had thought about sending for him. The Lama explained to Milarepa that many of his pupils had been waylaid and robbed of their meager possessions and supplies by the lawless inhabitants of one of the nearby provinces as they journeyed to and from the lamasery. He therefore dispatched Milarepa to launch a powerful hailstorm on the area. He promised Milarepa that as soon as this was accomplished, he would give him the instructions he sought. Now Milarepa bitterly repented his fate that instead of getting religious instruction, he was now being asked to commit still more evil acts. But he saw no way he could refuse so he set out for the province and set up his apparatus on a hillside and began the rites.

Soon a large and violent storm gathered and let loose huge quantities of rain and hail. After the storm had passed he saw that the fields of grain had all been wasted, the hills around were deeply cut by ravines, and many of the domestic animals of the residents as well as even birds, rats, and other animals had perished in the storm. Finding a shepherd who had lost his entire flock, Milarepa made known to him that the people of the province had better refrain from robbing the religious pilgrims passing through the area or risk having more disastrous hail storms visited upon them. On hearing of this the people were profoundly impressed with the power of Lama Ngogpa and not only refrained from robbing the pilgrims in the future, but many of them became devoted followers and faithfully served him.

 





 


Ice Shrouded Himalayas "If you lose all differentiation between yourselves and others,
fit to serve others you will be.

And when in serving others you will win success,
then shall you meet with me;

And finding me, you shall attain to Buddhahood."


Milarepa



Milarepa returned to the Lama in despair bewailing the fact that he came to the Lama searching for religious teaching but instead had been required to heap up even more sin. The Lama comforted him by telling him that all that had perished in the flood would in future times become themselves pupils on the path to Buddhahood.

Lama Ngogpa now fulfilled his promise to Milarepa and initiated him into the sacred rite of the Mandala of Gaypa Dorje. Milarepa was then conducted to a solitary cave where he was walled up inside of it with a stone wall held in place with mud as mortar. Now he was to commence his meditation practices. A small aperture was left for handing in food and water. Milarepa followed the Lama's meditation instructions with great zeal but despite a prodigious effort on his part, he failed utterly to experience any kind of spiritual development.

After a while the Lama came to him and asked him if he had experienced such and such to which Milarepa replied in the negative. The Lama was greatly puzzled as even the least advanced pupil should have had at least some measure of experiences by that point. Milarepa was inwardly alarmed by this and guessed that it was because he did not have Marpa's blessings. He was afraid to say anything though so he kept quiet and the Lama directed him to continue with his practices.

At about this time, Lama Ngogpa received a summons from Marpa to join him for a great religious event. The letter also stated that Lama Ngogpa should return the "wicked person" who had taken refuge with him. The Lama went to Milarepa's cave and read the letter to him. At this Milarepa confessed that indeed, it was not Marpa that had sent him there for instruction, but his wife, the Reverend Mother Damema. The Lama then stated that in that case, they had been engaged in totally profitless work.

Lama Ngogpa now collected all his pupils and taking a large number of objects and all his livestock as offerings in the ceremony, they proceeded to the residence of Marpa. When they were a short distance away, Lama Ngogpa sent Milarapa ahead to inform Marpa that they were near so that he could send some disciples back with refreshments (according to Tibetan custom).

Milarepa hurried to Marpa's residence and first encountered Damema. They greeted one another with great joy like reunited mother and son. She then told him to go inside and pay his respects to Marpa. Marpa was on the top floor of the house and when Milarepa approached from one direction, Marpa turned in another. Milarepa approached him again and Marpa turned back in yet another direction. Then Milarepa informed him that though he was unwilling to accept his own obeisance, Marpa should at least prepare a reception for Lama Ngogpa's party who was now only a short distance away. Marpa became enraged at this and replied that when he himself had returned from India with a load of precious teachings, not even as much as a lame bird hopped out to greet him.

At this Milarepa left to find Damema. The two, along with some of Marpa's disciples went back with a quantity of chang to greet Lama Ngogpa's party. Once the entire group had assembled, the religious consecration of the completed residence of Marpa's son was carried out. Then a few days later, Marpa conferred on Lama Ngogpa the final ear whispered teaching that he lacked - the Short Cut of the Immutable Path - through which it is possible to attain to Nirvana in a single lifetime.

After this Marpa put on a great feast, including his own disciples and all those who had assembled there from far distant locations. During the feast, Marpa sat looking fiercely at Lama Ngogpa and suddenly pointing an accusing finger at him and glancing at his long staff he had by his side, he demanded that the Lama account for his inexcusable behaviour in granting teachings to the wicked and evil Milarepa. The Lama was terrified and replied to him that he had only carried out the instructions that Marpa himself had written in his letter, signed with his own seal and accompanied by the relics of Saint Naropa to show their authenticity. Marpa then turned on Milarepa and demanded to know where he got the relics of Naropa to give to the Lama. Milarepa shrunk in terror and felt his soul within sinking. He quickly passed from a state of extreme terror to one of extreme anguish, feeling once again as if his heart were being torn out. He began trembling and could scarcely talk for his terror. He felt compelled to inform Marpa that the Reverend Mother Damema had sent him to the Lama with the note and the relics of Naropa. At this Marpa turned fiercely to Damema to accuse her, but anticipating just such an event, she had already escaped the room and went into the chapel, barring the door behind her. Marpa then demanded that Lama Ngogpa return to his monastery and bring back the garlands and rosary of rubies that had once belonged to the great saint Naropa.

The Lama left immediately to do so and encountered Milarepa outside who had also made his escape when the Reverend Mother had run out of the room. Milarepa was in a corner weeping from the deepest depths of despair and he asked the Lama to please ensure that he would get a proper birth in his next life with a chance to attain enlightenment. He explained that because of all the evil deeds he had committed he had not only had made himself suffer but had also involved the Lama and the Reverend Mother in his suffering. He had now lost all hope of attaining teachings in this life and in his despair, planned to take his own life on the spot. The Lama himself burst into tears at this and pleaded with Milarepa not to take his own life. He informed him that the Mystic Doctrine held that all the various bodily principles and faculties are divine and that to prematurely end the present life before it's natural period of dissolution was the greatest sin of all incurring the severest of punishments.

Then Lama Ngogpa sought to comfort Milarepa as did many of the disciples who joined in to offer their own sympathies. But Milarepa remained in deep despair, bitterly repenting the black deeds he had previously committed that were now producing all his present suffering.

Meanwhile all the anger seemed to drain out of Marpa and he became calm and mild and asked one of his disciples to go and bring Lama Ngogpa, Damema, and Milarepa back into his presence, but this made Milarepa even more despondent. He envied the others, called back to Marpa's presence, but as for himself, he knew that his teacher would only show fresh displeasure at him if he returned with the others. So he remained there still weeping with despair and Lama Ngogpa remained with him to soothe him and make sure he didn't do anything rash.
 





 

Marpa now sent Damema to request Milarepa to return saying that he was now to be the honored guest. Damema went to him smiling broadly and told him that it appeared that Lama Marpa was now really going to favor him with some teaching. Milarepa very much doubted that this could be so but nonetheless returned with the others and all took their seats around Marpa.

Now Marpa made a detailed recounting of all that had occurred from the time he first met his worthy disciple. He first said that he had set Milarepa at hard labor building various edifices to help absolve him of his sins. His own anger, he said was not common anger, but spiritual or religious anger and it had as its aim to incite repentance and contribute to the spiritual development of the recipient. If he had had the chance of plunging his spiritual son (Milarepa) into abject despair nine times he would have been able to cleanse him completely of all his sins. But owing to the misplaced pity and narrow understanding of his wife Damema, who had interfered with his plans, he was only able to do this eight times. However, the sufferings that Milarepa had undergone had cleansed him of his major sins and his other chastenings had cleansed him of most of his minor sins leaving him with only a residual amount of demerit to be worked off.

Now Marpa announced that he was going to finally confer on Milarepa those initiations and teachings of his sect that bring liberation in a single lifetime and then he planned to shut him up in a cave to begin his meditations.

Milarepa was not sure if he were dreaming or awake but if dreaming he wished the dream to continue and began to weep, not out of misery, but for the pure inexpressible joy that was now possessing his soul. He made obeisance to the guru Marpa and all those present admired Marpa for his stern and inflexible will while chastening Milarepa, and for his wisdom and mercy in working out his salvation. All were now beaming and smiling as they partook of the sacrificial cakes.

The next day, Marpa erected the Demchog Mandala and through mantras, invoked the presence of the deities who presided over the succession of gurus in the Kargyutpa Sect of which Marpa was now the current youngest lineage holder. Milarepa now had the vision of the presiding tutelary deities invoked by the Mandala, thus receiving their benediction on his initiation. Then Marpa gave him instruction in the methods of meditation and explained the meanings of all the omens and events that had occurred since the initial meeting of the two. He told Milarepa that he in his turn would have disciples full of faith, intelligence, and energy, owing to his own patience, faith and acceptance in all the trials he had undergone during his cleansing period.

Now Milarepa began his meditation training. Marpa shut him up in a cave with a supply of provisions. Milarepa used to start his meditations each day by putting a lighted lamp on his head. He would continue meditating until the lamp went out. After eleven months of this Marpa and Damema came to take him out of isolation and assess his progress. Milarepa was reluctant to take a break from his meditations because of the great progress he was making but he followed his Guru's dictates. Marpa now asked him what understandings he had obtained from his meditations. Milarepa first sang a song which he extemporaneously composed honoring his Guru and his wife and the teachings he had been given. In his song he requested that Marpa remain in the world until "The Whirling Pool of Being is emptied". After that he summarized his realizations.


Milarepa's Initial Realizations


I have understood this body of mine to be the product of ignorance, composed of flesh and blood and lit up by the perceptive power of consciousness. To those fortunate ones who long for emancipation it may be the great vessel by which they may procure Freedom. But to the unfortunates who only sin, it may be the guide to lower and miserable states of existence. This our life is the boundary mark whence one may take an upward or downward path. Our present time is a most precious time, wherein each of us must decide, in one way or other, for lasting good or lasting ill.

One who aims only at his own individual peace and happiness adopts the lower path (Hinayana), but he who devotes the merits of his love and compassion to the cause of others belongs to the higher path (Mahayana).

In meditating on the Final Goal, one has to discover the non-existence of the personal Ego, and therefore the fallacy that it exists (i.e. because everything in the universe with name and form is basically illusory in nature)

To realize the state of non-existence of the personal ego, the mind must be kept in quiescence. In that state, thoughts, ideas, and cognition cease and the mind (awareness) passes into a state of perfect tranquility so that days, months, and years may pass without the person perceiving it; thus the passage of time has to be marked for him by others.

The visions of the forms of the Deities which appear in meditation are merely signs attending the perseverance in meditation. They have no intrinsic worth or value in themselves.

All the efforts put forth during this path must be made in a spirit of compassion with the aim of dedicating the merit of one's efforts to the Universal Good. There is a need of mentally praying and wishing for blessings on others so earnestly that one's mind processes also transcend thought.

Just as the mere name of food does not satisfy the appetite of a hungry person but he must eat food, so also a man who would learn about the Voidness (i.e. Universal Awareness) must meditate so as to realize it, not just learn of its definition.
 





 

After the recounting, Marpa was exceedingly pleased and told Milarepa that he had expected much but that his expectations had all been exceeded. Milarepa was then allowed to go back to the cave for more meditation.

By now Marpa was getting on in years. Since he began teaching Milarepa, he had made two more trips to India to visit his Guru Naropa and receive the final texts he had not brought back in his earlier trips. Marpa now called together all his chief Lamas and disciples, including Milarepa, and gave to each those mystics texts that would be most valuable according to each person's line of development. Each also received some relic that had belonged to Naropa. To Milarepa was given the teaching of Tum-mo in which the ascending and descending flows along the spinal column are united to produce the vital heat so necessary for meditation in the cold and solitary caves of the Himalayas. Then all returned to their own province except Milarepa who continued for several more years of meditation in a cave under the direction of Marpa.

Usually Milarepa never slept but meditated continuously, however one particular day he had slept for a long time and had a vivid dream wherein he saw the house he had lived in as a child all in ruins. He saw his sacred books within the fallen house being wasted by rain water, his old mother had died, and his sister was roving about the countryside with no attachments and no friends. In his dream he was weeping with great sadness and longing for his mother and sister and he woke up feeling very sad. He tried again to meditate but could not shed his sadness; instead the feeling grew stronger and stronger until he vowed to himself to go out into the world and try to find his family. So he pulled down the rock wall and went to see his guru Marpa.

As he entered Marpa's quarters he found him asleep with the rising sun just lighting his head like a halo. Just at that moment, Damema came in with his morning meal. Marpa awoke, alarmed to find Milarepa had left his cave retreat. Milarepa explained that he was overcome with sadness thinking of his beloved mother and sister he had left behind many years ago. He explained to Marpa his great longing to see them once more. Although Marpa felt there was little chance in finding the mother alive and little merit in making the search, he agreed to allow him to go. But, he warned, the fact that Milarepa had entered his quarters and found him asleep was an omen that they would not see each other alive again in this life.

Marpa was much grieved at heart thinking he would not again see his spiritual son alive but knowing this was the way of all the perishable things of the world, he requested Damema to deck the alter with offerings for their parting ceremony. He then gave Milarepa the final and highest initiation as well as the sacred ear-whispered tantric doctrines. These doctrines he gave only to Milarepa, among all his disciples. He charged Milarepa in his turn to hand them down to his most worthy disciple and so on for thirteen generations. Then in a final ceremony with the entire assembly of Lamas and disciples, Marpa occultly manifested himself in the forms of Gaypa Dorje and other of the tutelary divinities of the Kargyutpa sect and also other divine shapes and forms along with the various symbols associated with each deity such as bells, gems, lotuses, swords, etc. He then explained that these were various psycho-physical powers obtained after enlightenment and that they should never be manifested for an unworthy cause. This was his parting gift to Milarepa, and this, his spiritual son, greatly exalted in his heart to see that his Guru Marpa was veritably a Buddha himself. He vowed that he himself would gain such powers and show them in his turn to his own disciples. Marpa then told him that he could now depart since he had demonstrated the mirage like nature of all existing things. He instructed Milarepa to meditate in various caves made holy by previous saints in the locale of Mount Kailas, Lapchi Kang (Mt. Everest), and other sanctified places. He then gave to Milarepa a sealed scroll that was to be opened only on dire threat of imminent death. With great sadness, knowing they would not meet again in the present life, Milarepa took leave of his beloved Spiritual Father and Mother with the thought that they would all meet again in the celestial realms.





 

He journeyed quickly to his homeland, crossing several high and dangerous mountain passes to get there. When he arrived he found things just as he had seen in his dream. His mother had died, his house was in ruins and all the neighbors were afraid to go near it thinking it inhabited by evil ghosts. His sister wandered homeless, none knew where. His field was choked with weeds.

He entered the ruin that was his house and found a mound with grass growing thickly over it. Moving the dirt he found the bones of what he knew to be his mother. He had the unbearable thought that he would never see his mother again and a deep sadness gripped his soul. He wept bitterly in his loneliness. Remembering his Guru's teachings on the transient nature of reality, he laid down using the mound as a pillow and entered into deep meditation. He soon passed over into the samadhi state in which he remained for seven days. On returning to normal consciousness, he reflected that the world now had nothing left to tempt him or bind him to it. He vowed again and again to himself that the life of solitary meditation was the only path for him. Exchanging his house and land for some food, he left forever his former homeland and proceeded to the Draktar-Taso Cave, the first of many caves he was to inhabit over the remainder of his life.


"Life is short and the time of death is uncertain; so apply yourself to meditation. Avoid doing evil, and acquire merit, to the best of your ability, even at the cost of life itself. In short: Act so that you have no cause to be ashamed of yourselves and hold fast to this rule"

Milarepa

Approaching Mt. Kailas


There he settled in the spacious comfortable cave, not even sleeping, but meditating continuously except for a single break once a day to prepare a meal of flour and water mixed with whatever root or edible he might find. At about this time Milarepa gained proficiency in the yogic power of Tum-mo, the generation of the Ecstatic Internal Warmth, in which the body generates a great deal of heat. This allowed him to stay relatively warm through the cold Tibetan winters with nothing but a thin cotton covering whereas most people had to wear thick wool and leather hides. For this reason he came to be called Mila - repa or Mila the cotton clad.

His daily routine of meditation continued for four years until his supply of flour ran out. This caused him great concern because he had vowed to himself not to return to the world for any reason - but with no food, he was afraid he might die without having attained liberation. He decided to walk about outside the cave in search of some kind of food. Not far from the cave he found a sunny spot with springs of fresh water, an expansive view of the area, with a large quantity of nettles growing all about. He made a soup of nettle broth and found it to be somewhat palatable. This was now to become his sole source of food for some time to come. He continued his meditations on his new diet, but without any nurturing food, his body soon became emaciated and the hair on his body began to take on a greenish tinge from the nettles. He became very weak and often thought of opening the scroll that Marpa had given him for a time of dire need. But he continued to make progress in his meditations.

About this time some hunters chanced to be in the area after failing to find game. When they first laid eyes on Milarepa's pale green form, they fled in terror thinking he was not a man but some kind of evil spirit. But on assuring them he was indeed a human like themselves they lost their fear of him. They demanded that Milarepa share some of his provisions with them as they were out of food but Milarepa told them he had none to share. They did not believe him, so they searched the area and not finding any began to ill treat him. Three of them picked him up several times and dropped him causing him great pain but in his misery he only pitied them and shed tears thinking of the evil karma they were creating for themselves. The fourth hunter entreated the others to stop ill-treating him and leave him alone as he did indeed seem to be a real lama for showing such forbearance over his ill treatment. Before leaving, the fourth man requested Milarepa to remember him in his prayers since the man had done nothing to offend him, and then the group of them left, laughing boisterously. Later Milarepa learned that Divine retribution had overtaken them as they were arrested by the Governor of the province. The leader was killed and all but the fourth man, who had restrained the others from harming Milarepa, had their eyes put out.

The meditation continued and Milarepa grew even thinner. The hair on his body took on a more greenish color. Again some hunters chanced upon his cave and also wanted provisions but seeing that he was living only on nettles, they left him the remainder of their own provisions and a large quantity of meat. Milarepa was very grateful to have some real food and he began to take some daily. The food gave him a sense of bodily comfort and spiritual zeal which he had not experienced in a long time and his meditations took on a new intensity. But eventually the food ran out and once again he fell back on his nettle broth for sustenance.

"Maintain the state of undistractedness and distractions will fly off.

Dwell alone and you shall find a friend.

Take the lowest place and you shall reach the highest.

Hasten slowly and you will soon arrive.

Renounce all worldly goals and you shall reach the highest goal."


Milarepa


Several more years passed in this way and Milarepa's long lost sister Peta heard tales from hunters that had stumbled across his camp. They informed her that her brother was there and looked on the verge of death from starvation. She was amazed to hear even that he was alive and took the news to Zesay, who had been betrothed to Milarepa in childhood. Between the two they agreed that the sister should first go to see him and find out if the rumors were true

Approaching the cave, Peta was horrified to see the emaciated green body of her brother, with protruding bones and eyes sunk in his skull. At first she took it to be some strange being or ghost but recognizing her brother's voice, she ran to him crying and bewailing their fate. She expressed to him that they two were the most luckless people in the whole world. At this Milarepa explained that rather he was the most fortunate person in the world because he had attained to transcendent knowledge and Bodhi mind (the internal vision of a Buddha). But his sister felt he was only deluding himself.

Peta had brought provisions and a supply of chang and after partaking of some food his mood was greatly elevated. However when he tried to meditate afterwards his mind was filled with a mix of pious and impious thoughts and he was unable to concentrate.

A few days later both the sister, Peta, and his betrothed, Zesay, came to visit him bringing cured meat, flour, butter, and chang. They chanced to come upon him when he was out getting water and he had absolutely no clothes on since his wearing cloth had fallen into tattered pieces over the years. His sister told him that no matter how she regarded him he seemed not to be in any way a sane person. They both urged him to at least go out begging for supplies on occasion. Then they went to get some cloth to cover his body with. But Milarepa felt that the hour of death was uncertain. his Guru had told him that his only avenue of success in this life was through continued meditation. He himself was afraid that if he didn't reach enlightenment in this very life, he would be reborn in a lower state due to the evil he had committed early in life, and so he ignored their advice and persevered in his meditation.

He finished the chang that Peta had brought and was eating well from the food left by Zesay but he found that his mind was now disturbed and his body was experiencing various pains. No matter how hard he tried to meditate he could no longer enter the samadhi state. Feeling there was no greater danger than not being able to continue with his meditations, he opened the scroll that Marpa had given him for just such a time of dire emergency. In the scroll he found the exact instructions needed for treating the present emergency and he immediately put the instructions into effect with the result that his meditations now increased as never before because of the healthy food he was now eating.

The knot or Energy Blockage of the central spinal column along which the psychic energy flows was now cleared at the plexus (i.e. chakra center) below the naval and the psychic energy current rose up his spine in its fullness. He now experienced a supersensuous calmness and clearness that far exceeded in its ecstatic intensity any of the states he had previously reached. He attained to new heights of realization in which he saw that the highest state of Nirvana and the ordinary state of Samsaric consciousness were but opposite and inseparable states resting on the base of the Voidness of Universal or Supra mundane Mind (ie Ultimate Awareness). In his new realization he could clearly see that the samsaric or phenomenal existence results when the Universal Mind is directed along the path of self centered and self oriented awareness, and that the Nirvanic state of transcendence results when it is directed on the path of selfless or altruistic awareness.

MILAREPA PSYCHIC POWERS FROM THE CHAKRAS ABOVE THE HEAD ALONG THE ANTAHKARANA




 

Greatly encouraged by this new development, Milarepa redoubled his zeal and began to develop the siddhis or yogic powers that accompany full enlightenment. His production of the inner vital heat also developed fully so that he could easily sit amongst the frozen snows and melt the ice into water. A few of the people he had encountered now knew about his siddhis (psychic powers) and so Milarepa determined to go to even more isolated caves to prevent a steady flow of people coming to him with selfish aims.

As he was about to leave the area, his sister Peta came once again bringing him some cloth for him to fasten into a garment for his naked body. She remained a while and he tried to talk her into taking to a life of meditation with him. But the very thought was repugnant to her and she saw only his great deprivation. To her, he was the most miserable person on the earth and she felt that even though she had to beg for her own food and clothes, her life was far better than his. She tried to talk him into becoming a lama of the people so that they might bring him offerings in return for religious blessings. Milarepa saw that he would not be able to convert her to a religious outlook so he at least explained to her the doctrine of karma (i.e. the law of retribution) so that she would at least refrain from incurring any fresh debts from harmful actions.

While Peta was visiting, their evil Aunt arrived, the aunt who had started the entire chain of events so many years back by seizing the property of Milarepa's widowed mother. Peta saw her approaching and tried to prevent her from reaching the cave by withdrawing the bridge that spanned the chasm to the other side, but the Aunt pleaded to be heard. Her brother, the evil Uncle who had conspired with her, had died, and she now deeply repented all she had done and so she had brought a yak load of supplies and found Milarepa by asking about in the villages until she was told a wandering monk resembling a green caterpillar had indeed been through the area. Milarepa finally agreed, although reluctantly, to talk to her and he delivered several religious discourses to her reminding her of all the sufferings and misery she had inflicted on them. In her state of misery, the Aunt took his teachings to heart and went on her way having been converted to a path that would confer eventual liberation. The sister Peta now also took her leave, having her mind somewhat turned to religion.




Milarepa now removed to Lapchi-Kang (Everest) and continued his meditation amidst the snows and isolation there. Altogether he meditated in and made holy twenty caves covering the region from Mount Kailas and Lapchi-Kang in Tibet to far off Nepal. It is said that besides his many human converts he also brought to enlightenment some superhuman (ie non-embodied) beings as well, including the Goddess Tseringma (one of the twelve guardian deities of Tibet who reside at Mt. Kailas). The Goddess came to tempt him with her powers during his meditations and instead was herself liberated.

During his travels over the 84 years of his life he met many worthy disciples that were destined to come under his tutelage. Highest among the disciples was Dvagpo Rimpoche (Gambopa). The most well known among them was Rechung who entreated him to tell in detail the story of his life (summarized in this narrative) which was recorded for the benefit of all sentient beings, even into the far future. These two disciples were respectively like the sun and the moon. The most exalted of beings met by Milarepa was a Maha-Purusha (Great Being) he had the excellent fortune of meeting - an Exalted Being mentioned by the Buddha himself as one of the guardians and protectors of the human race who live on through the centuries far from human habitation.

Besides his two chief disciples, Milarepa had 25 additional highly accomplished disciples, both men and women, who became saints. Another hundred made such progress that they did not take rebirth. Another hundred and eight Great Ones obtained excellent experience and knowledge from meditation. A thousand sadhus and yogis, both men and women, renounced worldly life and lived lives of exemplary piety. Innumerable lay disciples formed a religious relationship with Milarepa so that the gateway to lower states of existence was closed to them forever.

Thus did Milarepa radiate spiritual light like a beacon, drawing vast numbers of sentient beings forward toward the light of deliverance and dispelling in all directions the darkness of selfishness and ignorance.

At first we must progress without a Guru. We are at the stage of, "doing what we can for ourselves". However, after visiting spiritual places on pilgrimage, after practising Yoga, Pranayama and Meditation for a few years by ourselves - as anyone can who can read a book, there comes a necessity for absorbing the higher spiritual energies in order to attain spiritual initiation, Illumination.

This energy is only available from a genuine spiritual Guru.

Without this previous spiritual experience through Yoga etc, we are not competent to choose a Guru, instead we will choose a charlatan, one whose aim is to vampirise the energies of the student, not to give; not to, 'Charge them up with the charge of the Soul"

Without this previous experience we are at the stage of the student who, given a ring by a Sufi Master went to the market place to have it valued. There the maximum price offered was 50 Rupees. Then he was told to go to the biggest jewelers in town. There he was offered 50,000 Rupees.

We need that previous spiritual experience to judge our Gurus truly...

"To be Spiritual we have to be Lucky" - Satchidanand

 

Here is the interaction between Milarepa, one of Tibet's most famous saints. The thousand songs of Milarepa are still sung in Tibet. And his interaction with his Guru, his Spiritual Master, Marpa.

 

"Each time Marpa ordered Milarepa to dismantle a house, he would give some absurd excuse, such as having been drunk when he ordered the house built or never having ordered such a house at all. And each time Milarepa, full of longing for the teachings, would tear the house down and start again.

Finally Marpa designed a tower with nine stories. Milarepa suffered terrific physical hardship in carrying the stones and building the house and, when he had finished, he went to Marpa and once more asked for the teachings. But Marpa said to him, '"You want to receive teachings from me, just like that, merely because you built this tower for me? Well, I'm afraid you will still have to give me a gift as an initiation fee." By this time Milarepa had no possessions left whatsoever, having spent all his time and labor building towers. But Damema, Marpa's wife, felt sorry for him and said, "These towers you have built are such a wonderful gesture of devotion and faith. Surely my husband won't mind if I give you some sacks of barley and a roll of cloth for your initiation fee." So Milarepa took the barley and cloth to the initiation circle where Marpa was teaching and offered them as his fee, along with the gifts of the other students. But Marpa, when he recognized the gift, was furious and shouted at Milarepa. "These things belong to me, you hypocrite! You try to deceive me!" And he literally kicked Milarepa out of the initiation circle.

At this point Milarepa gave up all hope of ever getting Marpa to give him the teachings. In despair, he decided to commit suicide and was just about to kill himself when Marpa came to him and told him that he was ready to receive the teaching.

The process of receiving teaching depends upon the student  giving something in return; some kind of psychological surrender is necessary, a gift of some sort. This is why we must discuss surrendering, opening, giving up expectations, before we can speak of the relationship between teacher and student. It is essential to surrender, to open yourself, to present whatever you are to the guru, rather than trying to present yourself as a worthwhile student. It does not matter how much you are willing to pay, how correctly you behave, how clever you are at saying the right thing to your teacher. It is not like having an interview for a job or buying a new car. Whether or not you will get the job depends upon your credentials, how well you are dressed, how beautifully your shoes are polished, how well you speak, how good your manners are. If you are buying a car, it is a matter of how much money you have and how good your credit is.

But when it comes to spirituality, something more is required. It is not a matter of applying for a job, of dressing up to impress our potential employer. Such deception does not apply to an interview with a guru, because he sees right through us. He is amused if we dress up especially for the interview. Making ingratiating gestures is not applicable in this situation; in fact it is futile. We must make a real commitment to being open with our teacher; we must be willing to give up all our preconceptions.

Milarepa expected Marpa to be a great scholar and a saintly person, dressed in yogic costume with beads, reciting mantras, meditating. Instead he found Marpa working on his farm, directing the laborers and plowing his land.

I am afraid the word "guru" is overused in the West. It would be better to speak of one's "spiritual friend," because the teachings emphasize a mutual meeting of two minds. It is a matter of mutual communication, rather than a master-servant relationship between a highly evolved being and a miserable, confused one. In the master-servant relationship the highly evolved being may appear not even to be sitting on his seat but may seem to be floating, levitating, looking down at us. His voice is penetrating, pervading space. Every word, every cough, every movement that he makes is a gesture of wisdom. But this is a dream. A guru should be a spiritual friend who communicates and presents his qualities to us, as Marpa did with Milarepa and Naropa with Marpa.

Marpa presented his quality of being a farmer-yogi. He happened to have seven children and a wife, and he looked after his farm, cultivating the land and supporting himself and his family. But these activities were just an ordinary part of his life. He cared for his students as he cared for his crops and family. He was so thorough, paying attention to every detail of his life, that he was able to be a competent teacher as well as a competent father and farmer. There was no physical or spiritual materialism in Marpa's life-style at all. He did not emphasize spirituality and ignore his family or his physical relationship to the earth. If you are not involved with materialism, either spiritually or physically, then there is no emphasis made on any extreme.

Nor is it helpful to choose someone for your guru simply because he is famous, someone who is renowned for having published stacks of books and converted thousands or millions of people. Instead the guideline is whether or not you are able actually to communicate with the person, directly and thoroughly. How much self-deception are you involved in? If you really open yourself to your spiritual friend, then you are bound to work together. Are you able to talk to him thoroughly and properly? Does he know anything about you? Does he know anything about himself, for that matter? Is the guru really able to see through your masks, communicate with you properly, directly? In searching for a teacher, this seems to be the guideline rather than fame or wisdom.

There is an interesting story of a group of people who decided to go and study under a great Tibetan teacher. They had already studied somewhat with other teachers, but had decide to concentrate on trying to learn from this particular person. They were all very anxious to become his students and so sought an audience with him, but this great teacher would not accept any of them. "Under one condition only will I accept you," he said. "If you are willing to renounce your previous teachers." They all pleaded with him, telling him how much they were devoted to him, how great his reputation was, and how much they would like to study with him. But he would not accept any of them unless they would meet his condition. Finally all except one person in the party decided to renounce their previous teachers, from whom they had in fact learned a great deal.

The guru seemed to be quite happy when they did so and told them all to come back the next day. But when they returned he said to them, "I understand your hypocrisy. The next time you go to another teacher you will renounce me. So get out." And he chased them all out except for the one person who valued what he had learned previously. The person he accepted was not willing to play any more lying games, was not willing to try to please a guru by pretending to be different from what he was. If you are going to make friends with a spiritual master, you must make friends simply, openly, so that the communication takes place between equals, rather than trying to win the master over to you.

In order to be accepted by your guru as a friend, you have to open yourself completely. And in order that you might open, you will probably have to undergo tests by your spiritual friend and by life situations in general, all of these tests taking the form of disappointment. At some stage you will doubt that your spiritual friend has any feeling, any emotion toward you at all. This is dealing with your own hypocrisy. The hypocrisy, the pretense and basic twist of ego, is extremely hard; it has a very thick skin. We tend to wear suits of armor, one over the other.

This hypocrisy is so dense and multi-levelled that, as soon as we remove one layer of our suit of armor, we find another beneath it. We hope we will not have to completely undress. We hope that stripping off only a few layers will make us presentable. Then we appear in our new suit of armor with such an ingratiating face, but our spiritual friend does not wear any armor at all; he is a naked person, Compared with his nakedness, we are wearing cement. Our armor is so thick that our friend cannot feel the texture of our skin, our bodies. He cannot even see our faces properly.

There are many stories of teacher-student relationships in the past in which the student had to make long journeys and endure many hardships until his fascination and impulses began to wear out. This seems to be the point: the impulse of searching for something is, in itself, a hang-up. When this impulse begins to wear out, then our fundamental basic nakedness begins to appear and the meeting of the two minds begins to take place. It has been said that the first stage of meeting one's spiritual friend is like going to a supermarket. You are excited and you dream of all the different things that you are going to buy: the richness of your spiritual friend and the colorful qualities of his personality.

The second stage of your relationship is like going to court, as though you were a criminal. You are not able to meet your friend's demands and you begin to feel self-conscious, because you know that he knows as much as you know about yourself, which is extremely embarrassing. In the third stage when you go to see your spiritual friend, it is like seeing a cow happily grazing in a meadow. You just admire its peacefulness and the landscape and then you pass on. Finally the fourth stage with one's spiritual friend is like passing a rock in the road. You do not even pay attention to it; you just pass by and walk away.

At the beginning a kind of courtship with the guru is taking place, a love affair. How much are you able to win this person over to you? There is a tendency to want to be closer to your spiritual friend, because you really want to learn. You feel such admiration for him. But at the same time he is very frightening; he puts you off. Either the situation does not coincide with your expectations or there is a self-conscious feeling that "I may not be able to open completely and thoroughly." A love-hate relationship, a kind of surrendering and running away process develops. In other words, we begin to play a game, a game of wanting to open, wanting to be involved in a love affair with our guru, and then wanting to run away from him. If we get too close to our spiritual friend, then we begin to feel overpowered by him.

As it says in the old Tibetan proverb: "A guru is like a fire. If you get too close you get burned: if you stay too far away you don't get enough heat." This kind of courtship takes place on the part of the student. You tend to get too close to the teacher, but once you do, you get burned. Then you want to run away altogether.

Eventually the relationship begins to become very substantial and solid. You begin to realize that wanting to be near and wanting to be far away from the guru is simply your own game. It has nothing to do with the real situation, but is just your own hallucination. The guru or spiritual friend is always there burning, always a life-fire. You can play games with him or not, as you choose.

Then the relationship with one's spiritual friend begins to become very creative. You accept the situations of being overwhelmed by him and distant from him. If he decides to play the role of cold icy water, you accept it. If he decides to play the role of hot fire, you accept it. Nothing can shake you at all and you come to a reconciliation with him.

The next stage is that, having accepted everything your spiritual friend might do, you begin to lose your own inspiration because you have completely surrendered, completely given up. You feel yourself reduced to a speck of dust. You are insignificant. You begin to feel that the only world that exists is that of this spiritual friend, the guru. It is as though you were watching a fascinating movie; the movie is so exciting that you become part of it. There is no you and no cinema hall, no chairs, no people watching, no friends sitting next to you. The movie is all that exists. This is called the "honeymoon period" in which everything is seen as a part of this central being, the guru. You are just a useless, insignificant person who is continuously being fed by this great, fascinating central being. Whenever you feel weak or tired or bored, you go and just sit in the cinema hall and are entertained, uplifted, rejuvenated. At this point the phenomenon of the personality cult becomes prominent. The guru is the only person in the world who exists, alive and vibrant. The very meaning of your life depends upon him. If you die, you die for him. If you live, you survive for him and are insignificant.

However, this love affair with your spiritual friend cannot last forever. Sooner or later its intensity must wane and you must face your own life-situation and your own psychology. It is like having married and finished the honeymoon. You not only feel conscious of your lover as the central focus of your attention, but you begin to notice his or her life-style as well. You begin to notice what it is that makes this person a teacher, beyond the limits of his individuality and personality. Thus the principle of the "universality of the guru" comes into the picture as well. Every problem you face in life is a part of your marriage.

Whenever you experience difficulties, you hear the words of the guru. This is the point at which one begins to gain one's independence from the guru as lover, because every situation becomes an expression of the teachings. First you surrendered to your spiritual friend. Then you communicated and played games with him. And now you have come to the state of complete openness. As a result of this openness you begin to see the guru-quality in every life-situation, that all situations in life offer you the opportunity to be as open as you are with the guru, and so all things can become the guru.

Milarepa had a vivid vision of his guru Marpa while he was meditating in very strict retreat in Red Rock Jewel Valley. Weak with hunger and battered by the elements, he had fainted while trying to collect firewood outside his cave. When he regained consciousness, he looked to the east and saw white clouds in the direction where Marpa lived. With great longing he sang a song of supplication, telling Marpa how much he longed to be with him.

Then Marpa appeared in a vision, riding a white snow lion, and said to him something like, "What is the matter with you? Have you had a neurotic upheaval of some sort? You understand the dharma, so continue to practice meditation." Milarepa took comfort and returned to his cave to meditate. His reliance and dependence upon Marpa at this point indicates that he had not yet freed himself from the notion of guru as personal, individual friend.

However, when Milarepa returned to his cave, he found it full of demons with eyes as big as saucepans and bodies the size of thumbs. He tried all kinds of ploys to get them to stop mocking and tormenting him, but they would not leave until Milarepa finally stopped trying to play games, until he recognized his own hypocrisy and gave in to openness. From this point on you see a tremendous change of style in Milarepa's songs, because he had learned to identify with the universal quality of guru, rather than solely relating to Marpa as an individual person.

The spiritual friend becomes part of you, as well as being an individual, external person. As such the guru, both internal and external, plays a very important part in penetrating and exposing our hypocrisies. The guru can be a person who acts as a mirror, reflecting you, or else your own basic intelligence takes the form of the spiritual friend. When the internal guru begins to function, then you can never escape the demand to open. The basic intelligence follows you everywhere: you cannot escape your own shadow. "Big Brother is watching you." Though it is not external entities who are watching us and haunting us; we haunt ourselves. Our own shadow is watching us.

We could look at it in two different ways. We could see the guru as a ghost, haunting and mocking us for our hypocrisy. There could be a demonic quality in realizing what we are. And yet there is always the creative quality of the spiritual friend which also becomes a part of us.

The basic intelligence is continuously present in the situations of life. It is so sharp and penetrating that at some stage, even if you want to get rid of it, you cannot. Sometimes it has a stern expression, sometimes an inspiring smile. It has been said in the Tantric tradition that you do not see the face of the guru, but you see the expression of his face all the time. Either smiling, grinning, or frowning angrily, it is part of every life-situation.

The basic intelligence, tathagata-garbha, Buddha-nature, is always in every experience life brings us. There is no escaping it. Again it is said in the teachings: "Better not to begin. Once you begin, better to finish it." So you had better not step onto the spiritual path unless you must. Once you have stepped foot on the path, you have really done it, you cannot step back. There is no way of escaping.

Q: Having stumbled around various spiritual centers, I feel that a personality like Marpa must be a very troublesome phenomenon for most addicts along these lines. For here is a man who seems not to be doing any of the things that everybody says will get you there. He's not ascetic, he doesn't abnegate. He looks after his everyday affairs. He is a normal human being and yet, apparently, he is a teacher of enormous capability. Is Marpa the only one who has made the most of the possibilities for a normal man without going through all the tremendous pain of asceticism and the discipline of purification?

A: Of course Marpa is an example of the possibilities open to us. However, he did experience tremendous discipline and training while he was in India. By studying strenuously under Indian teachers he prepared his path. But I think we must understand the true meaning of the words "discipline" and "asceticism." The basic idea of asceticism, leading a life according to the dharma, is to be fundamentally sane."

...There is a third category of personages or august or exalted beings, who, though embodied in a human frame, in truth are super beings. From time immemorial such personages, albeit only on extremely rare occasions, take birth on this earth, live, and work amongst the common humanity and guide an immense number of them to the Supreme Wisdom. They are the highest manifestations of the Primary Consciousness or Almighty God and therefore from the very moment of their birth they have the Absolute Wisdom about the nature of the whole cosmos and all its contents. They also have Absolute knowledge of Primary Consciousness, in other words, the knowledge about their own Divinity and Godhead. These super beings are called Purna Avatars (also Poorna or Full), or Supreme Incarnations of Almighty God, in Sanathana Dharma (Ancient Wisdom) or the Perennial Religion. Purna Avatars are born with an extraordinary array of supernatural powers, and possess an inexhaustible ability to perform divine miracles or miraculous deeds. They use these supernatural powers of theirs with the highest motives for both spiritual and temporal good of other beings, especially human beings. They never use these powers to benefit themselves.

Up to now, in the whole history of mankind, all together four such Purna Avatars or Supreme Incarnations of Almighty God have taken birth on earth....


From Adwaita Rahasya - Secrets of Creation Revealed  by Dr. Chandra Bhan Gupta


When He comes down assuming special form on special occasions for a specific purpose, He is known as Avathara. In fact, Manu and Prajapati and other Persons are Divine Persons entrusted by Brahma (the Creator aspect) with the mission of peopling the world. Everything happens in consonance with the Divine Will. So we can assert that the saints, sages, ascetics, and men both good and bad are all Avatharas of the Vishnu (Preserver) Entity (also called Hari). Avatharas are as countless as living beings are, for, each is born as a consequence of Divine Will. But the story of the Yugavathar (The Avatar of the Age) alone is worth perusal for the Advent is to restore Dharma (righteousness) and moral life.

In a strange way we are all Avatars since we all contain the inner Atma. But since we identify with our limited individuality and self importance and human powers, we are Avatars only as a potentiality.

A true Avatar by contrast is always aware that he is God in the form of a human and has the full power of the universe and beyond behind him.
 


 

When goodness grows weak,
When evil increases,
I make myself a body.

In every age I come back
To deliver the holy,
To destroy the sin of the sinner
To establish righteousness
(Bhagavad Gita)


 

ANNA'S ENERGY ENHANCEMENT COURSE STUDENT REPORT WITH SWAMI SATCHIDANAND AND SWAMI DEVI DHYANI -  JAN 22ND TO FEBRUARY 25TH 2011

ANNAS EXPERIENCE WITH PSYCHIC POWERS, PSYCHIC VISION, SIDDHIS, AND INCREDIBLE SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCES WITH THE TRIANGLE OF CHAKRAS IN THE HEAD

"A few days ago Satchidanand was glowing such that Anna could not look at him.

She said she needed sunglasses.

She had to leave the presence.

The growing pains produced by the spiritual radiation were intense.

"Swami Satchidanand is Radiator of Spiritual Tension, a Walking Point of Crisis"  - This is The Buddhafield of Satchidanand

Due to the effects of the Radiation she took a day out and went to sleep.

In the dream she knew she was dreaming.

In the dream she was asleep. and she knew she was asleep in the dream.

And she was watching what was going on in the second dream - three levels.

She saw Devi cleaning the floor, and Devi was not happy with the result. Some floorboards were white but some were dark.

Eventually Devi gave up and left a crystal on a bed of salt with a cloth over the top.

Anna examined the crystal from the second level.

And then a cat came in with three kittens.

Apparently Satchidanand was there because he said, "She is feeding, shoo her out!!" so she did. And we think this refers to the three energy blockage snakes in the cave of snakes Anna found in the sacrum during the first week with us. Blockages out!!

And then onto the fourth level of dream, a pink room where Satchidanand was cleaning a mirror of its greasy marks because the mind needs to reflect that which is to be truly true. Greasy spots reflect a lie, an untruth, the symptoms of energy blockages"

 

"There she removed five inner children sub-personalities and a mazy unclarity in the limpid clarity required of a clean mental aura.

As she cleared it she was allowed to ascend to Sirius and in the temple there entered into the sacred flame. She found herself entering naked into a golden room with golden filigrees on the door. Eight naked men followed her in. With her in the center they lay on the floor feet towards her, heads pointing away in a circle around her. There they turned into golden skeletons and Anna ascended up the Antahkarana spinning clockwise.

There was an Angel who noted her name in the book and allowed her to continue her ascent in to the Avatar of Synthesis - SYMBOLISING THAT NOW, AFTER PURIFICATION, SHE CAN BE A PART OF THAT HIGH COMMUNITY. There she noticed many clones of Master Satchidanand with his glasses who is the hands of the Avatar of Synthesis on this planet"

 

"There she also received the vision of herself on a Long Superhighway. There are many souls in the cars speeding along there. She knows it is a long road. But she also knows that Energy Enhancement is the Fastest Path!!

"After her meditation on the superhighway Anna continued her Energy Enhancement Initiations with The Spiritual Aura of Energy Enhancement Level 2 Initiation 5. As she went out into the infinite spiritual Aura she was taken upwards exactly as in the previous Initiation in the mental Aura. She was taken Higher. As she ascended again the Angel checked her name off in  the book allowing her to enter into the great community of Souls at the Avatar of Synthesis.

She found herself in front of Satchidanand who was sitting on a throne, radiating white light. She felt herself like a three years old child taken by Satchidanand and standing at his side, enfolded in his arms and in his love. She felt him touching her back  and head and tears came down from her eyes.

From the crowd of great souls around her came the cry, "Give her the present!"

And Satchidanand gave her a triangular mechanism created out of pure mental matter looking like light or ether. She was told it was to integrate the triangle of Chakras in the head, forming an integrated Unit out of the three chakras of the head.

The functioning triangle of Sahasrara Ray One of Purpose and Will connected with the light of the Central Spiritual Sun above the head of Intuition, Alta Major Center at the occipital base of the Skull Ray Two of Love connected with the energies beaming out of the left eye, and Ajna Brow Chakra Ray Three of the Intellect connected with the energies beaming out of the right eye and the connections between them - ALL POWERED BY THE VAST ENERGIES OF THE BASE CHAKRA CONNECTED WITH THE INFINITE ENERGIES OF KUNDALINI CHAKRA.

Putting in the integrative triangle was a blast. Satchidanand said, "You need to get used to it"

The purpose of this triangle is to Radiate the Light of the higher chakras and so influence and evolve her own students.. I suppose they will have to get sunglasses also!! LOL!!"

Anna's Energy Enhancement Course Report 22nd February 2011 - COMPLETE

PSYCHIC POWERS, PSYCHIC VISION, SIDDHIS, AND INCREDIBLE SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCES WITH THE TRIANGLE OF CHAKRAS IN THE HEAD

I never realized the power of blockages until a couple of weeks prior to coming on this course. As my departure date came closer the blockages began to show themselves in greater intensity. They showed themselves in every aspect of my relationships with all around me. They invaded my thoughts, my emotions and my actions. Creating statements not only in my head but also voiced statements which I knew were not really what I deeply felt about me and the reasons why the course was important to me. I wanted to be rid of these blockages they were holding me back from my Path. They were preventing further advancement, they wanted to hold me were I was, the blockages were happy with their life in me. I knew that I needed to travel away from my own reality to have undisturbed time, devoted time, with out distraction to be able to work on these deep seated blockages. As soon as I got on the airplane the blockages fell silent, they tried to hide even deeper inside of me hoping that they would not be discovered.

When the work began, the blockages would try to distract me in every way possible. Creating illusions in my mind and procrastination, I’ll do it later, I don’t need to do this now, I’ll read, dream, sleep anything but settle down to do the meditation required to deal with a particular aspect of the blockages. Slowly the work reached into the deeper levels of my subconscious and I could look at the different effects that particular blockages had upon how I responded to certain situations, repeated patterns of behavior that I had been trying to break using other spiritual methods I knew.

Deeper and deeper I travel into my subconscious and the benefits I received back became deeper and deeper. I recover my inner sense of joy and happiness which I had not felt for a while. Life can beat you down every now and again and I had few tools to be able to restore my inner joy and inner happiness. My internal smile returned.

As the Initiations progressed so did my internal peace. As I was reaching the end of Initiation 3, which took a lot of time, dedication and bloody mindedness I received several amazing gifts from Spirit, from the Divine Love that we all crave for. I had three distinct experiences.

The first one was of a downloading nature; I had gone to lie down after a particularly challenging meditation, I had placed my newly acquired large quartz crystal on my heart chakra. I realized that time had passed but not how long and when I came to I found it difficult to move my arms and legs, my body was so heavy, my palm chakras were shining so brightly, I felt as if crystals had been implanted, energy flowed down my forearms, down my legs. I had been out for just over an hour. I felt as if I had been floating, somewhere else, not completely sure of where or what had been happening, but I felt so good, so blessed, so loved. It took me a few hours to fully integrate back into my physical body.

The next gift happened the shortly after. I got up but was having great difficulty in waking up, my mind just wanted to go back to sleep. I forced myself to attend breakfast and after it was decided that I should go back to sleep for a while. I fell into a deep sleep for 3 hours and awoke remembering in full detail the contents of the most amazing dream I have ever experienced. I was dreaming in three different realities. I knew I was asleep in the physical sense; I was also asleep in my dream and also walking about. I knew in my dream that I was asleep in both realities. At some point during my physical sleep I turned onto my back, all that happened next was whilst I was asleep.

I began to realize that my occipital was hurting; hurting like it had never hurt before. I felt a loving hand gently stroke the right side of my face, tears rolled down my face in both my dream and in reality. Tears created by the loving compassionate touch that I received. I only saw the hand. I had blazing white light fill my mind and time had no meaning. This happened several times during the dream sequence. I knew I was asleep in the physical world and I knew I was asleep in my dream world.

I moved from the room that I was asleep in, in my dream world, to a space that was occupied by Satchi and Devi. They were cleaning, Devi on her hands and knees cleaning the floor around where I sat on a reclining chair. In through the French window to my left I saw a black Mother cat come into the room followed by three little fuzzy black balls, her kittens. I said to Satchi the cats have got in. In a very loving voice Satchi says to me ´She is feeding; make sure you get her out´. It was as if the cat was just looking for somewhere safe to feed her kittens. I got up from the chair and walked down a corridor and shushed the cats out, Satchi said you might wanted to have a look in this room and I entered a totally baby pink room, the floor, ceiling and walls baby pink in color. The only thing in the room was a large mirror which Satchi had been cleaning grease marks off of.

I then return to the room in which I am asleep in my dream and I find Devi cleaning the floor around me. She knew I was asleep. She is not happy with the way the floor had turned out and she is complaining about using too much liquid to clean the floor. It was as if the floor had been bleached in parts. I wake up in my dream and find that she has left a cloth, some salts and a large quartz crystal on the floor beside me. I pick up the crystal to investigate what she has left and return all in the same place as I found it.

Before returning to the physical world I became aware of the pain in both my palms and I turn to look at my right palm and find a clear quartz crystal has been placed into my palm chakra. I also have a pain in my left palm but not to the same intensity. Upon waking I realize that I have had my right hand in the receiving position, palm upwards by my head and my left hand in the releasing position, palm downwards facing towards my feet.

At some point in my dream I did think Satchi what have you done to me and could you turn down the intensity please but I also know that you only receive what you can cope with. I woke up feeling refreshed, amazed and a little bit in awe of what I had just experienced. The number three had already been present in my mediations and I immediately understood that the cat and her kittens were blockages trying to return. I also understood that Satchi and Devi had both been working hard to help me clean my body, soul and chakras.

My third out of this world experience happened towards the end of completing Initiation Four of Level Two. Just before the meditation came to an end I was propelled upwards, higher than I have ever been before. It was as if my Antahkarana had become a space ship, higher and higher I went. I was taken to an outcrop, a landing platform with mountains all around.

In the centre of the circular disc was a lit candle. With out hesitation I walked straight in to the burning candle. As soon as I did this the candle changed into a golden circular chamber with beautiful lattice grills all around. A door opened and people began to walk in to the chamber. I thought who are they? But the image quickly changed and they lay down all around me in an eight pointed shape with their feet towards me. They had turned into golden skeletons. I was raised higher, spinning, turning in a clockwise direction with rainbow light showering down upon me.

Satchi advised me to return to this place to ask where I had gone to, what was the name of this place? What was the reason I was taken there? What was the next step in my path? When I returned the next day I was shown several different levels as I was taken higher and higher. At one stage I was shown an Angel looking in a book, I had the impression that she was checking to see if my name was there.

As I arrived at the next level I began to see Satchi look-alikes, several men with long white beards and wearing glasses. I had been asking my questions and the images changed to a long road, a highway spreading out before me. As I began to travel along the highway, cars came and went in both directions. Sitting on the highway barriers, on both sides of the highway, I saw people. The souls of people also traveling the path or people waiting to helped along their soul path?

I have had many other experiences whilst here, feelings of great gratitude and forgiveness towards family members, towards friends both past and present, towards my self in this present life and towards myself in past lives. I have felt things make sense, a sort of order restored within, a newly found strength of balance. New tools to help me deal with what life can throw at me. I feel that I am able to love myself more than before. I have felt supported, physically, emotionally and spiritually by Satchi and Devi. I have felt their compassion and the compassion of the Divine Universal love for all.

ANNA - 22ND FEBRUARY 2011

 

Satchidanand's Energy Enhancement Course Report on Anna, Updated 25th February 2011 - Including a few of the Teachings and Experiences received by Anna on the Course

Anna came to Iguassu for a One Month Two Level Energy Enhancement Course. She is the Loving wife of one of our previous students and mother of two strapping Irish sons. She has been involved in Shaman training and now teaches how to make shamanic drums in workshops worldwide.

We all have psychic powers. Normally they have so little energy powering them that they do not work properly - As we "Powered UP!" all of the psychic powers in Energy Enhancement Level One - Anna  started to "see" (Psychic Vision is always one of the first "Siddhis" to arrive in Energy Enhancement) She had the experience of Blockages above the head in the chakras above the head which she "Saw" as the inability to create the antahkarana higher than the Logos chakra, preventing her ascent of the Antahkarana.

In association of the information on the Omphallos Stone (See the Energy Enhancement Book, "Super Energy and Sacred Symbols") - captured in its "Argenon" or "Snake basket" from Delphi and the dark, "Pythonesses" the divinatory priestesses of the Delphi Cult  which covered the whole Mediterranean and through Plutarch, the then head of the order, became one of the state religions of Rome through Augustus Caesar in his meeting with them in Capri. She investigated the, "Cave of the Snakes" which she found in the  spine in the Sacral Region and worked on three Viper Snake energy blockages which she found there - from past lifetimes in these organisations.

As we move on into Energy Enhancement Level Two, - The Elimination of Energy Blockages - all these blockages we have seen will have to go!!

Anna has been talking of looking and feeling much better now, so I suppose we will have to have the, "After" picture to follow the, "Before" one above.

As Anna was working on the Energy Blockages above the head using the Seven Step Process of level 2 she found incredible energy intensity as she grounded and sent up Energy Blockages implanted into her Antahkarana many lifetimes ago.

She said, "but you did not tell me about the intensity of the Energy before I came" and this is what I wrote to her husband by email..

Anna is Working on the Fourth Level and above of the Seven step process.

She said, "You didn't tell me it would be this intense!"

I say that its like this the very first time. Growing pains. It will not be like that again.

All we are doing is increasing our abilities to handle the highest flux densities of energy.

The end of the process is that we become Ascended Masters.

To do this we have to study with someone at a higher level.

Its all very well working on the things we can do easily.

But in order to progress, we need to work on the things at a higher level.

More on the edge.

In chess, "we can only improve by playing a better opponent". (From The Guy Ritchie Movie, "Revolver", First Cut, where the whole movie is about removing all the sub personalities of the Ego)

Its what Castaneda calls, "The Perfect Enemy"

Long may it continue from that place of, "No Fear"

Anna has removed blockages from above the head, below the base and is now working on the blockages within the body. Base Chakra, Money, sex, security, fear, Base Chakra energy connections with other people.
As she says, "The Three F's Fear, Food and Fucking". And as she was working on these areas she was getting the past life experiences where these blockages were formed.

Energy Enhancement works on the, "Need to Know" basis. Most of the stuff we do not need to know, and this stuff just gets grounded. But sometimes there is something which our Soul wants us to know. These are the visions which are shown to us all the way through the Energy Enhancement Course.

And in Energy Enhancement it is the Soul who is in charge of the  Course. Not Me. Not the Anna personality, but that Soul infused Personality who is in the process of throwing out all the other Dark Sub-Personalities, connected to the dark side, infused with trauma caused negative Karmic mass. This process is just that symbolised by the Bhagavad Gita where Arjuna represents the Pandava White Angels inside a human being and The Kaurava family represents the Dark Angels within a human being. The war between the two of them represents the process of purification of the Energy Enhancement course where our student will ground and heal all the Energy Blockages before absorbing them back into the Soul where they all become ONE! There can only be ONE!!

THIS BATTLE CAN ONLY BE WON WITH THE HELP OF KRISHNA WHO SYMBOLISES THE HIGHER SELF, THE SOUL, THE MONAD AND HIGHER!!

As she was working on some of the childish sub personalities created in every family where there is competition and jealousy for the love and attention of the parents from every sibling, she had tremendous intensity of energy in the Visshuddhi throat chakra moving down into the Heart chakra particularly in the Mental Aura of the heart Chakra.

"The energy was so intense", she said, "But I was in that space of No-Mind and it was not me doing the work. Everything was ready for this great operation and It was being Done for me and as I sat for  an Hour!! (I have never ever been able to sit for  anything like that length of time before) so the whole mass of deep dark energy blockages were cleared out of the region. The result was that someone, Shiva, Lakshmi, Krishna, opened  up all the minor chakras in my body, shining in my hand chakras and brow chakra and I felt all the meridians flowing with the light. Wow!!

After that I had a go at the triangle of Chakras within the head. The functioning triangle of Sahasrara Ray One of Purpose and Will connected with the light of the Central Spiritual Sun above the head of Intuition, Alta Major Center at the occipital base of the Skull Ray Two of Love connected with the energies beaming out of the left eye, and Ajna Brow Chakra Ray Three of the Intellect connected with the energies beaming out of the right eye and the connections between them.

Removing the Energy Blockages in this region caused me the next day to be blinded by the light emanating from the psychic body of Satchidanand during our regular daily talks. Every day I see his  Aura glowing bright white, but today it was so brilliant I could barely watch him. I suppose I will have to wear sun glasses!!

I told him that it was only the preparation of previous courses on the Shamanka Shamanic path which had given me enough purity and strength to continue the Energy Enhancement Process. He told me that great masters will not meet with normal people as the radiant energy of the master will be too much for the normal student and will, "Blow them out". The Radiant Light, The Buddhafield of Masters will, "cast out" the energy blockages of the student. Usually the  Energy Blockages will talk to the students to Go from the Ashram before that can happen by creating bad thoughts and resentment over anything to do with the Master or the Ashram. Thus they are, "Blown Out". Great Masters will only meet with their disciples who have proven able to take the energies..

Before I came on the Energy Enhancement Course. For two weeks before it I was in the state of incredible fear. All my blockages were afraid, jumping up and down and trying to get me not to come. I was in an incredible state just before I had to get on the plane but I knew what was going on. I knew I had to defeat these energy blockages and now I am here I would never not have come. The course has just blown me away!!

Thus Satchidanand says, "You have been looking all over the World to find One Master who is Genuine. Me, I've been looking all my life for a genuine Student" We need to know that we are on the path of increasing that studentness inside of us. For this, normally we need some previous spiritual path before meeting a genuine Master. Only a genuine student can become enlightened.

Osho had a student in Germany who wrote to everyone to say that he was Enlightened. Osho knew he was not and so asked him to come to meet him again. When he came he said, "I don't know what happened. When I was in Germany I was Enlightened. But now I am here suddenly  it has gone from me and I am back in the same unenlightened state." But then he want back to Germany and again he was writing everyone to say he was enlightened again.

There are many people alive in the world like Hitler and Stalin who are the cause of all the problems in the World.

There are many Charlatans in the World. Milarepa visited one before he found his real Master and became  Enlightened. Milarepa became one of the greatest saints in Tibet and the thousand songs of Milarepa are still sung in Tibet. But before he went on the Path of Light, Milarepa practised to become a Black Magician so he had some previous spiritual training.  He came to a monastery on the banks of one of the deepest and coldest lakes in the Himalayas. The Master there said, "Just chant my name and you will be able to do anything!!"

One of the defining traits of a Student is faith. People who are cynical would say naivety. Whatever we call it, this trait is necessary. To believe that one person in the World has ever become enlightened requires a big leap of Faith whether that person is Jesus Christ, Buddha or Krishna.

So when Milarepa came out out of his interview with the Master all the cynical non students decided to have some fun. They said, "At the top of the mountain is a 1000 meter cliff. Surely by chanting the Masters name you can jump off the top without any problems!" And Milarepa was so stupid he said, "yes!"

And the students followed him up the mountain to the top of the cliff every moment expecting him to chicken out. But Milarepa sat at the top in the Lotus. And chanting the Masters name he flung himself from the top!!

The students were horrified. They ran to the bottom expecting to see his broken body on the rocks. But he was there!! Sitting in the Lotus posture chanting the Master's name.

So they said, "Now walk across the waters of the Lake" and chanting the Masters name, Milarepa walked on the Waters of the deepest coldest lake in the whole of Tibet.

The Master was looking out of his window and saw this. He asked his closest disciple what was going on and the Disciple told him that he was chanting the Masters name and thus was able to do anything.

The Master was really proud, "I am so powerful" he thought.

So next morning at 4am he went out to the lake and chanting his own name went out onto the lake, fell in and drowned!!

They were all searching for the Master. Where was  he?

But Milarepa just shrugged and went off looking for his genuine Master, found him and became Enlightened.

Just because you have psychic powers does not mean that you are enlightened. Milarepa developed his on a dark path of Black magic.

Everyone on the energy enhancement course develops psychic powers in order to remove energy blockages in yourself, and in others..

The test of Illumination is the ability to stay with a Master without any problems as the Master and his Soul and his Monad will always try to bring the Student's Energy Blockages to the attention of the Student so that he can work on them and remove them.

WRITTEN 16TH  FEBRUARY 2011 - ONLY NINE DAYS LEFT TO GO!!

Hi,

Anna is very happy!!

A few days ago I was glowing such that she could not look at me.

She said she needed sunglasses.

She had to leave the presence.

The growing pains produced by the spiritual radiation were intense.

"Swami Satchidanand is Radiator of Spiritual Tension, a Walking Point of Crisis"  - This is The Buddhafield of Satchidanand

Due to the effects of the Radiation she took a day out and went to sleep.

In the dream she knew she was dreaming.

In the dream she was asleep. and she knew she was asleep in the dream.

And she was watching what was going on in the second dream - three levels.

She saw Devi cleaning the floor, and Devi was not happy with the result. Some floorboards were white but some were dark.

Eventually Devi gave up and left a crystal on a bed of salt with a cloth over the top.

Anna examined the crystal from the second level.

And then a cat came in with three kittens.

Apparently Satchidanand was there because he said, "She is feeding, shoo her out!!" so she did. And we think this refers to the three energy blockage snakes in the cave of snakes Anna found in the sacrum during the first week with us. Blockages out!!

And then onto the fourth level of dream, a pink room where Satchidanand was cleaning a mirror of its greasy marks because the mind needs to reflect that which is to be truly true. Greasy spots reflect a lie, an untruth, the symptoms of energy blockages. And so on.

Anna can tell you the rest.

But Anna is very happy with the result of her efforts in meditation, cleaning all the chakras of the antahkarana very carefully every day.

Because spiritual experiences have to be earned.

A lot of very good work has been done.

Anna is happy and energised.

We read her palm and very good future it is too.

More work needs to be done and Anna is thinking of a regular Energy Enhancement session every day at home.

Good!!

We also are happy at keeping it all together!!

Lots of Love and Light,

Masters Satchidanand and Devi Dhyani

Anna - After the Energy Enhancement Meditation Course 25th February 2011

Written 22nd February 2011

Well, since her dream Anna has been working on the Four Auras - Initiation Five of Level Two of Energy Enhancement - including the Physical Aura and the DNA.

As she was working on the Physical Aura she had the experience of seeing a spear point lodged in her shoulder, in the middle of the Clavicle right side. She saw that it was there from past lives but was also having its effects in this lifetime having severe pain there, worked on it for many years with acupuncture which although it drained the pain, did not fully remove the cause. In this meditation the spear point was handed to her, she grounded it and sent it up and then sewed the damage in the clavicle with golden thread.

The emotional aura was tough too, so much so that even with the air conditioning on, she was sweating with the effort and the intensity needed for clearing it. She felt the weight on her shoulders felt all of her life, from supporting those around her, disappearing.

And on to the mental aura. There she removed five inner children sub-personalities and a mazy unclarity in the limpid clarity required of a clean mental aura.

As she cleared it she was allowed to ascend to Sirius and in the temple there entered into the sacred flame. She found herself entering naked into a golden room with golden filigrees on the door. Eight naked men followed her in. With her in the center they lay on the floor feet towards her, heads pointing away in a circle around her. There they turned into golden skeletons and Anna ascended up the Antahkarana spinning clockwise.

There was an Angel who noted her name in the book and allowed her to continue her ascent in to the Avatar of Synthesis - SYMBOLISING THAT NOW, AFTER PURIFICATION, SHE CAN BE A PART OF THAT HIGH COMMUNITY. There she noticed many clones of Master Satchidanand with his glasses who is the hands of the Avatar of Synthesis on this planet.

Each organisation tests its aspirants to see if they are high enough to join them. Those who do not pass the test are rejected. Then they grow within the organisation.

There she also received the vision of herself on a Long Superhighway. There are many souls in the cars speeding along there. She knows it is a long road. But she also knows that Energy Enhancement is the Fastest Path!!

 

After her meditation on the superhighway Anna continued her Energy Enhancement Initiations with The Spiritual Aura of Energy Enhancement Level 2 Initiation 5. As she went out into the infinite spiritual Aura she was taken upwards exactly as in the previous Initiation in the mental Aura. She was taken Higher. As she ascended again the Angel checked her name off in  the book allowing her to enter into the great community of Souls at the Avatar of Synthesis.

She found herself in front of Satchidanand who was sitting on a throne, radiating white light. She felt herself like a three years old child taken by Satchidanand and standing at his side, enfolded in his arms and in his love. She felt him touching her back  and head and tears came down from her eyes.

From the crowd of great souls around her came the cry, "Give her the present!"

And Satchidanand gave her a triangular mechanism created out of pure mental matter looking like light or ether. She was told it was to integrate the triangle of Chakras in the head, forming an integrated Unit out of the three chakras of the head.

The functioning triangle of Sahasrara Ray One of Purpose and Will connected with the light of the Central Spiritual Sun above the head of Intuition, Alta Major Center at the occipital base of the Skull Ray Two of Love connected with the energies beaming out of the left eye, and Ajna Brow Chakra Ray Three of the Intellect connected with the energies beaming out of the right eye and the connections between them - ALL POWERED BY THE VAST ENERGIES OF THE BASE CHAKRA CONNECTED WITH THE INFINITE ENERGIES OF KUNDALINI CHAKRA.

Putting in the integrative triangle was a blast. Satchidanand said, "You need to get used to it"

The purpose of this triangle is to Radiate the Light of the higher chakras and so influence and evolve her own students.. I suppose they will have to get sunglasses also!! LOL!!

Only two more days to go!!

Recapitulating the Years of the Life was the final initiation of Level Two of Energy Enhancement.

As Devi gave her a special Course on the Elimination of Energy Blockages including removing all negative energy from the conception point where she found that practising the Initiations again would remove even more of the selfish competitive star, the "Self Importance" of don Juan and Castaneda, The "Vanity" of Gurdjieff, and aid the "Creation of Impeccability", Anna could only report on the first few years of her life. The rest is homework. 

However she did mention the start of spotting the Inner Children Saboteurs of her life. To start with, these Inner Children Saboteurs tried to prevent the process through the technique employed by many different types of Energy Blockages called, "Procrastination"

Due to the fact  that Anna's birthday is the 21st December she very rarely had a special birthday celebration as a child - it being so near to Christmas. The angry/sad Inner Child created at this point had tried to gain attention and vampirise the energies of all around her by creating Dramas, becoming a, "Drama Queen" at this date every year of her life up till now.

Anna saw this. And now she has used the Energy Enhancement techniques to drain the trauma-formed negative Karmic mass out of the Birthdays, out of the Birthday Inner child and to Integrate this troublesome Inner Child with Love, back into the Central Stem of the Soul, thus further integrating the mind.

Anna spotted more and more Inner Children and knew the task in front of her was steep to Integrate ALL the Inner Children created during this past lifetime.

To help the process of removing all, "Touchiness" which is the symptom of all inner children in her and your life, I recommended the use of the technique of the Petty Tyrant in order to reach the, "Impeccableness" of Illumination. Petty Tyrants show us our, "Self Importance" of the Selfish Competitive Ego.

To help with the process I read out the following story all the while saying  that the path of don Juan came from a dark Sorceric path only recently cleaned out by don Juan himself and a lot of the teachings of the sorcerors way can take you down the path of darkness.

Even, "Impeccability" is not sufficient because, "Impeccability" can be used only with the energies of Intellect and Will as by Stalin, Hitler and Mao, whereas the true perfection of "Impeccability" can only come with the use of Intellect, Will AND Love!! as given by the Buddha and Jesus Christ.

However, the use of treating Petty Tyrants in your life to, "Stalk" yourself so as to find all points of, "Touchiness" of, "Self Importance" is a great technique. Use it!! Use it!!

So I read out the following excerpt so she could understand the technique...

Use the Energy Enhancement techniques to drain the Self Important trauma-formed negative Karmic mass out of the Inner children to Integrate these troublesome Inner Children with Love, back into the Central Stem of the Soul, thus further integrating the mind.

 

Don Juan, Carlos Castaneda, Petty Tyrants, Self Importance, Impeccability

 

Don Juan, Carlos Castaneda, Petty Tyrants, Self Importance, Impeccability

Petty Tyrants
 

Don Juan did not discuss the mastery of awareness with me until months later. We were at that
time in the house where the nagual's party lived.
"Let's go for a walk," don Juan said to me, placing his hand on my shoulder. "Or better yet,
let's go to the town's square, where there are a lot of people, and sit down and talk."
I was surprised when he spoke to me, as I had been in the house for a couple of days then and
he had not said so much as "hello".
As don Juan and I were leaving the house, la Gorda intercepted us and demanded that we take
her along. She seemed determined not to take no for an answer. Don Juan in a very stern voice
told her that he had to discuss something in private with me.
"You're going to talk about me," la Gorda said, her tone and gestures betraying both suspicion
and annoyance.
"You're right," don Juan replied dryly. He moved past her without turning to look at her.
I followed him, and we walked in silence to the town's square. When we sat down I asked him
what on earth we would find to discuss about la Gorda. I was still smarting from her look of
menace when we left the house.
"We have nothing to discuss about la Gorda or anybody else," he said. "I told her that just to
provoke her enormous self-importance. And it worked. She is furious with us. If I know her, by
now she will have talked to herself long enough to have built up her confidence and her righteous
indignation at having been refused and made to look like a fool. I wouldn't be surprised if she
barges in on us here, at the park bench."
"If we're not going to talk about la Gorda, what are we going to discuss?" I asked.
"We're going to continue the discussion we started in Oaxaca," he replied. "To understand the
explanation of awareness will require your utmost effort and your willingness to shift back and
forth between levels of awareness. While we are involved in our discussion I will demand your
total concentration and patience."
Half-complaining, I told him that he had made me feel very uncomfortable by refusing to talk
to me for the past two days. He looked at me and arched his brows. A smile played on his lips and
vanished. I realized that he was letting me know I was no better than la Gorda.
"I was provoking your self-importance," he said with a frown. "Self-importance is our greatest
enemy. Think about it - what weakens us is feeling offended by the deeds and misdeeds of our
fellow men. Our self-importance requires that we spend most of our lives offended by someone.
"The new seers recommended that every effort should be made to eradicate self-importance
from the lives of warriors. I have followed that recommendation, and much of my endeavors with
you has been geared to show you that without self-importance we are invulnerable."
As I listened his eyes suddenly became very shiny. I was thinking to myself that he seemed to
be on the verge of laughter and there was no reason for it when I was startled by an abrupt,
painful slap on the right side of my face.
I jumped up from the bench. La Gorda was standing behind me, her hand still raised. Her face
was flushed with anger.
"Now you can say what you like about me and with more justification," she shouted. "If you
have anything to say, however, say it to my face!"
Her outburst appeared to have exhausted her, because she sat down on the cement and began
to weep. Don Juan was transfixed with inexpressible glee. I was frozen with sheer fury. La Gorda
glared at me and then turned to don Juan and meekly told him that we had no right to criticize
her.
Don Juan laughed so hard he doubled over almost to the ground. He couldn't even speak. He
tried two or three times to say something to me, then finally got up and walked away, his body
still shaking with spasms of laughter.
I was about to run after him, still glowering at la Gorda - at that moment I found her
despicable - when something extraordinary happened to me. I realized what don Juan had found
so hilarious. La Gorda and I were horrendously alike. Our self-importance was monumental. My
surprise and fury at being slapped were just like la Gorda's feelings of anger and suspicion. Don
Juan was right. The burden of self-importance is a terrible encumbrance.
I ran after him then, elated, the tears flowing down my cheeks. I caught up with him and told
him what I had realized. His eyes were shining with mischievousness and delight.
"What should I do about la Gorda?" I asked.
"Nothing," he replied. "Realizations are always personal."
He changed the subject and said that the omens were telling us to continue our discussion back
at his house, either in a large room with comfortable chairs or in the back patio, which had a
roofed corridor around it. He said that whenever he conducted his explanation inside the house
those two areas would be off limits to everyone else.
We went back to the house. Don Juan told everyone what la Gorda had done. The delight all
the seers showed in taunting her made la Gorda's position extremely uncomfortable.
"Self-importance can't be fought with niceties," don Juan commented when I expressed my
concern about la Gorda.
He then asked everyone to leave the room. We sat down and don Juan began his explanations.
He said that seers, old and new, are divided into two categories. The first one is made up of
those who are willing to exercise self-restraint and can channel their activities toward pragmatic
goals, which would benefit other seers and man in general. The other category consists of those
who don't care about self-restraint or about any pragmatic goals. It is the consensus among seers
that the latter have failed to resolve the problem of self-importance.
"Self-importance is not something simple and naive," he explained. "On the one hand, it is the
core of everything that is good in us, and on the other hand, the core of everything that is rotten.
To get rid of the self-importance that is rotten requires a masterpiece of strategy. Seers, through
the ages, have given the highest praise to those who have accomplished it."
I complained that the idea of eradicating self-importance, although very appealing to me at
times, was really incomprehensible; I told him that I found his directives for getting rid of it so
vague I could not follow them.
"I've said to you many times," he said, "that in order to follow the path of knowledge one has
to be very imaginative. You see, in the path of knowledge nothing is as clear as we'd like it to
be."
My discomfort made me argue that his admonitions about self-importance reminded me of
Catholic postulates. After a lifetime of being told about the evils of sin, I had become callous.
"Warriors fight self-importance as a matter of strategy, not principle," he replied. "Your
mistake is to understand what I say in terms of morality."
"I see you as a highly moral man, don Juan," I insisted.
"You've noticed my impeccability, that's all," he said.
"Impeccability, as well as getting rid of self-importance, is too vague a concept to be of any
value to me," I remarked.
Don Juan choked with laughter, and I challenged him to explain impeccability.
"Impeccability is nothing else but the proper use of energy," he said. "My statements have no
inkling of morality. I've saved energy and that makes me impeccable. To understand this, you
have to save enough energy yourself."
We were quiet for a long time. I wanted to think about what he had said. Suddenly, he started
talking again.
"Warriors take strategic inventories," he said. "They list everything they do. Then they decide
which of those things can be changed in order to allow themselves a respite, in terms of
expending their energy."
I argued that their list would have to include everything under the sun. He patiently answered
that the strategic inventory he was talking about covered only behavioral patterns that were not
essential to our survival and well-being.
I jumped at the opportunity to point out that survival and well-being were categories that could
be interpreted in endless ways, hence, there was no way of agreeing what was or was not essential
to survival and well-being.
As I kept on talking I began to lose momentum. Finally, I stopped because I realized the
futility of my arguments.
Don Juan said then that in the strategic inventories of warriors, self-importance figures as the
activity that consumes the greatest amount of energy, hence, their effort to eradicate it.
"One of the first concerns of warriors is to free that energy in order to face the unknown with
it," don Juan went on. "The action of rechanneling that energy is impeccability."
He said that the most effective strategy was worked out by the seers of the Conquest, the
unquestionable masters of stalking. It consists of six elements that interplay with one another.
Five of them are called the attributes of warriorship: control, discipline, forbearance, timing, and
will. They pertain to the world of the warrior who is fighting to lose self-importance. The sixth
element, which is perhaps the most important of all, pertains to the outside world and is called the
petty tyrant.
He looked at me as if silently asking me whether or not I had understood.
"I'm really mystified," I said. "You keep on saying that la Gorda is the petty tyrant of my life.
Just what is a petty tyrant?"
"A petty tyrant is a tormentor," he replied. "Someone who either holds the power of life and
death over warriors or simply annoys them to distraction."
Don Juan had a beaming smile as he spoke to me. He said that the new seers developed their
own classification of petty tyrants; although the concept is one of their most serious and
important findings, the new seers had a sense of humor about it. He assured me that there was a
tinge of malicious humor in every one of their classifications, because humor was the only means
of counteracting the compulsion of human awareness to take inventories and to make
cumbersome classifications.
The new seers, in accordance with their practice, saw fit to head their classification with the
primal source of energy, the one and only ruler in the universe, and they called it simply the
tyrant. The rest of the despots and authoritarians were found to be, naturally, infinitely below the
category of tyrant. Compared to the source of everything, the most fearsome, tyrannical men are
buffoons; consequently, they were classified as petty tyrants, pinches tiranos.
He said that there were two subclasses of minor petty tyrants. The first subclass consisted of
the petty tyrants who persecute and inflict misery but without actually causing anybody's death.
They were called little petty tyrants, pinches tiranitos. The second consisted of the petty tyrants
who are only exasperating and bothersome to no end. They were called small-fry petty tyrants,
repinches tiranitos, or teensy-weensy petty tyrants, pinches tiranitos chiquititos.
I thought his classifications were ludicrous. I was sure that he was improvising the Spanish
terms. I asked him if that was so.
"Not at all," he replied with an amused expression. "The new seers were great ones for
classifications. Genaro is doubtless one of the greatest; if you'd observe him carefully, you'd
realize exactly how the new seers feel about their classifications."
He laughed uproariously at my confusion when I asked him if he was pulling my leg.
"I wouldn't dream of doing that," he said, smiling. "Genaro may do that, but not I, especially
when I know how you feel about classifications. It's just that the new seers were terribly
irreverent."
He added that the little petty tyrants are further divided into four categories. One that torments
with brutality and violence. Another that does it by creating unbearable apprehension through
deviousness. Another which oppresses with sadness. And the last, which torments by making
warriors rage.
"La Gorda is in a class of her own," he added. "She is an acting, small-fry petty tyrant. She
annoys you to pieces and makes you rage. She even slaps you. With all that she is teaching you
detachment."
"That's not possible!" I protested.
"You haven't yet put together all the ingredients of the new seers' strategy," he said. "Once you
do that, you'll know how efficient and clever is the device of using a petty tyrant. I would
certainly say that the strategy not only gets rid of self-importance; it also prepares warriors for the
final realization that impeccability is the only thing that counts in the path of knowledge."
He said that what the new seers had in mind was a deadly maneuver in which the petty tyrant
is like a mountain peak and the attributes of warriorship are like climbers who meet at the
summit.
"Usually, only four attributes are played," he went on. "The fifth, will, is always saved for an
ultimate confrontation, when warriors are facing the firing squad, so to speak."
"Why is it done that way?"
"Because will belongs to another sphere, the unknown. The other four belong to the known,
exactly where the petty tyrants are lodged. In fact, what turns human beings into petty tyrants is
precisely the obsessive manipulation of the known."
Don Juan explained that the interplay of all the five attributes of warriorship is done only by
seers who are also impeccable warriors and have mastery over will. Such an interplay is a
supreme maneuver that cannot be performed on the daily human stage.
"Four attributes are all that is needed to deal with the worst of petty tyrants," he continued.
"Provided, of course, that a petty tyrant has been found. As I said, the petty tyrant is the outside
element, the one we cannot control and the element that is perhaps the most important of them all.
My benefactor used to say that the warrior who stumbles on a petty tyrant is a lucky one. He
meant that you're fortunate if you come upon one in your path, because if you don't, you have to
go out and look for one."
He explained that one of the greatest accomplishments of the seers of the Conquest was a
construct he called the three-phase progression. By understanding the nature of man, they were
able to reach the incontestable conclusion that if seers can hold their own in facing petty tyrants,
they can certainly face the unknown with impunity, and then they can even stand the presence of
the unknowable.
"The average man's reaction is to think that the order of that statement should be reversed," he
went on. "A seer who can hold his own in the face of the unknown can certainly face petty
tyrants. But that's not so. What destroyed the superb seers of ancient times was that assumption.
We know better now. We know that nothing can temper the spirit of a warrior as much as the
challenge of dealing with impossible people in positions of power. Only under those conditions
can warriors acquire the sobriety and serenity to stand the pressure of the unknowable."
I vociferously disagreed with him. I told him that in my opinion tyrants can only render their
victims helpless or make them as brutal as they themselves are. I pointed out that countless
studies had been done on the effects of physical and psychological torture on such victims.
"The difference is in something you just said," he retorted. "They are victims, not warriors.
Once I felt just as you do. I'll tell you what made me change, but first let's go back again to what I
said about the Conquest. The seers of that time couldn't have found a better ground. The
Spaniards were the petty tyrants who tested the seers' skills to the limit; after dealing with the
conquerors, the seers were capable of facing anything. They were the lucky ones. At that time
there were petty tyrants everywhere.
"After all those marvelous years of abundance things changed a great deal. Petty tyrants never
again had that scope; it was only during those times that their authority was unlimited. The
perfect ingredient for the making of a superb seer is a petty tyrant with unlimited prerogatives.
"In our times, unfortunately, seers have to go to extremes to find a worthy one. Most of the
time they have to be satisfied with very small fry."
"Did you find a petty tyrant yourself, don Juan?"
"I was lucky. A king-size one found me. At the time, though, I felt like you; I couldn't
consider myself fortunate."
Don Juan said that his ordeal began a few weeks before he met his benefactor. He was barely
twenty years old at the time. He had gotten a job at a sugar mill working as a laborer. He had
always been very strong, so it was easy for him to get jobs that required muscle. One day when he
was moving some heavy sacks of sugar a woman came by. She was very well dressed and
seemed to be a woman of means. She was perhaps in her fifties, don Juan said, and very
domineering. She looked at don Juan and then spoke to the foreman and left. Don Juan was then
approached by the foreman, who told him that for a fee he would recommend him for a job in the
boss's house. Don Juan told the man that he had no money. The foreman smiled and said not to
worry because he would have plenty on payday. He patted don Juan's back and assured him it
was a great honor to work for the boss.
Don Juan said that being a lowly ignorant Indian living hand-to-mouth, not only did he believe
every word, he thought a good fairy had touched him. He promised to pay the foreman anything
he wished. The foreman named a large sum, which had to be paid in installments.
Immediately thereafter the foreman himself took don Juan to the house, which was quite a
distance from the town, and left him there with another foreman, a huge, somber, ugly man who
asked a lot of questions. He wanted to know about don Juan's family. Don Juan answered that he
didn't have any. The man was so pleased that he even smiled through his rotten teeth.
He promised don Juan that they would pay him plenty, and that he would even be in a position
to save money, because he didn't have to spend any, for he was going to live and eat in the house.
The way the man laughed was terrifying. Don Juan knew that he had to escape immediately.
He ran for the gate, but the man cut in front of him with a revolver in his hand. He cocked it and
rammed it into don Juan's stomach.
"You're here to work yourself to the bone," he said. "And don't you forget it." He shoved don
Juan around with a billy club.
Then he took him to the side of the house and, after observing that he worked his men every
day from sunrise to sunset without a break, he put don Juan to work digging out two enormous
tree stumps. He also told don Juan that if he ever tried to escape or went to the authorities he
would shoot him dead - and that if don Juan should ever get away, he would swear in court that
don Juan had tried to murder the boss.
"You'll work here until you die," he said. "Another Indian will get your job then, just as you're
taking a dead Indian's place."
Don Juan said that the house looked like a fortress, with armed men with machetes
everywhere. So he got busy working and tried not to think about his predicament. At the end of
the day, the man came back and kicked him all the way to the kitchen, because he did not like the
defiant look in don Juan's eyes. He threatened to cut the tendons of don Juan's arms if he didn't
obey him.
In the kitchen an old woman brought food, but don Juan was so upset and afraid that he
couldn't eat. The old woman advised him to eat as much as he could. He had to be strong, she
said, because his work would never end. She warned him that the man who had held his job had
died just a day earlier. He was too weak to work and had fallen from a second-story window.
Don Juan said that he worked at the boss's place for three weeks and that the man bullied him
every moment of every day. He made him work under the most dangerous conditions, doing the
heaviest work imaginable, under the constant threat of his knife, gun, or billy club. He sent him
daily to the stables to clean the stalls while the nervous stallions were in them. At the beginning
of every day don Juan thought it would be his last one on earth. And surviving meant only that he
had to go through the same hell again the next day.
What precipitated the end was don Juan's request to have some time off. The pretext was that
he needed to go to town to pay the foreman of the sugar mill the money that he owed him. The
other foreman retorted that don Juan could not stop working, not even for a minute, because he
was in debt up to his ears just for the privilege of working there.
Don Juan knew that he was done for. He understood the man's maneuvers. Both he and the
other foreman were in cahoots to get lowly Indians from the mill, work them to death, and divide
their salaries. That realization angered him so intensely that he ran through the kitchen screaming
and got inside the main house. The foreman and the other workers were caught totally by
surprise. He ran out the front door and almost got away, but the foreman caught up with him on
the road and shot him in the chest. He left him for dead.
Don Juan said that it was not his destiny to die; his benefactor found him there and tended him
until he got well.
"When I told my benefactor the whole story," don Juan said, "he could hardly contain his
excitement.
"That foreman is really a prize," my benefactor said. "He is too good to be wasted. Someday
you must go back to that house."
"He raved about my luck in finding a one-in-a-million petty tyrant with almost unlimited
power. I thought the old man was nuts. It was years before I fully understood what he was talking
about."
"That is one of the most horrible stories I have ever heard," I said. "Did you really go back to
that house?"
"I certainly did, three years later. My benefactor was right. A petty tyrant like that one was one
in a million and couldn't be wasted."
"How did you manage to go back?"
"My benefactor developed a strategy using the four attributes of warriorship: control,
discipline, forbearance, and timing."
Don Juan said that his benefactor, in explaining to him what he had to do to profit from facing
that ogre of a man, also told him what the new seers considered to be the four steps on the path of
knowledge. The first step is the decision to become apprentices. After the apprentices change
their views about themselves and the world they take the second step and become warriors, which
is to say, beings capable of the utmost discipline and control over themselves. The third step, after
acquiring forbearance and timing, is to become men of knowledge. When men of knowledge
learn to see they have taken the fourth step and have become seers.
His benefactor stressed the fact that don Juan had been on the path of knowledge long enough
to have acquired a minimum of the first two attributes: control and discipline. Don Juan
emphasized that both of these attributes refer to an inner state. A warrior is self-oriented, not in a
selfish way, but in the sense of a total and continuous examination of the self.
"At that time, I was barred from the other two attributes," don Juan went on. "Forbearance and
timing are not quite an inner state. They are in the domain of the man of knowledge. My
benefactor showed them to me through his strategy."
"Does this mean that you couldn't have faced the petty tyrant by yourself?" I asked.
"I'm sure that I could have done it myself, although I have always doubted that I would have
carried it off with flair and joyfulness. My benefactor was simply enjoying the encounter by
directing it. The idea of using a petty tyrant is not only for perfecting the warrior's spirit, but also
for enjoyment and happiness."
"How could anyone enjoy the monster you described?"
"He was nothing in comparison to the real monsters that the new seers faced during the
Conquest. By all indications those seers enjoyed themselves blue dealing with them. They proved
that even the worst tyrants can bring delight, provided, of course, that one is a warrior."
Don Juan explained that the mistake average men make in confronting petty tyrants is not to
have a strategy to fall back on; the fatal flaw is that average men take themselves too seriously;
their actions and feelings, as well as those of the petty tyrants, are all-important. Warriors, on the
other hand, not only have a well-thought-out strategy, but are free from self-importance. What
restrains their self-importance is that they have understood that reality is an interpretation we
make. That knowledge was the definitive advantage that the new seers had over the simpleminded
Spaniards.
He said that he became convinced he could defeat the foreman using only the single
realization that petty tyrants take themselves with deadly seriousness while warriors do not.
Following his benefactor's strategic plan, therefore, don Juan got a job in the same sugar mill
as before. Nobody remembered that he had worked there in the past; peons came to that sugar
mill and left it without leaving a trace.
His benefactor's strategy specified that don Juan had to be solicitous of whoever came to look
for another victim. As it happened, the same woman came and spotted him, as she had done years
ago. This time he was physically even stronger than before.
The same routine took place. The strategy, however, called for refusing payment to the
foreman from the outset. The man had never been turned down and was taken aback. He
threatened to fire don Juan from the job. Don Juan threatened him back, saying that he would go
directly to the lady's house and see her. Don Juan knew that the woman, who was the wife of the
owner of the mill, did not know what the two foremen were up to. He told the foreman that he
knew where she lived, because he had worked in the surrounding fields cutting sugar cane. The
man began to haggle, and don Juan demanded money from him before he would accept going to
the lady's house. The foreman gave in and handed him a few bills. Don Juan was perfectly aware
that the foreman's acquiescence was just a ruse to get him to go to the house.
"He himself once again took me to the house," don Juan said. "It was an old hacienda owned
by the people of the sugar mill - rich men who either knew what was going on and didn't care, or
were too indifferent even to notice.
"As soon as we got there, I ran into the house to look for the lady. I found her and dropped to
my knees and kissed her hand to thank her. The two foremen were livid.
"The foreman at the house followed the same pattern as before. But I had the proper
equipment to deal with him; I had control, discipline, forbearance, and timing. It turned out as my
benefactor had planned it. My control made me fulfill the man's most asinine demands. What
usually exhausts us in a situation like that is the wear and tear on our self-importance. Any man
who has an iota of pride is ripped apart by being made to feel worthless.
"I gladly did everything he asked of me. I was joyful and strong. And I didn't give a fig about
my pride or my fear. I was there as an impeccable warrior. To tune the spirit when someone is
trampling on you is called control."
Don Juan explained that his benefactor's strategy required that instead of feeling sorry for
himself as he had done before, he immediately go to work mapping the man's strong points, his
weaknesses, his quirks of behavior.
He found that the foreman's strongest points were his violent nature and his daring. He had
shot don Juan in broad daylight and in sight of scores of onlookers. His great weakness was that
17
he liked his job and did not want to endanger it. Under no circumstances could he attempt to kill
don Juan inside the compound in the daytime. His other weakness was that he was a family man.
He had a wife and children who lived in a shack near the house.
"To gather all this information while they are beating you up is called discipline," don Juan
said. "The man was a regular fiend. He had no saving grace. According to the new seers, a perfect
petty tyrant has no redeeming feature."
Don Juan said that the other two attributes of warriorship, forbearance and timing, which he
did not yet have, had been automatically included in his benefactor's strategy. Forbearance is to
wait patiently - no rush, no anxiety - a simple, joyful holding back of what is due.
"I groveled daily," don Juan continued, "sometimes crying under the man's whip. And yet I
was happy. My benefactor's strategy was what made me go from day to day without hating the
man's guts. I was a warrior. I knew that I was waiting and I knew what I was waiting for. Right
there is the great joy of warriorship."
He added that his benefactor's strategy called for a systematic harassment of the man by taking
cover with a higher order, just as the seers of the new cycle had done during the Conquest by
shielding themselves with the Catholic church. A lowly priest was sometimes more powerful than
a nobleman.
Don Juan's shield was the lady who got him the job. He kneeled in front of her and called her
a saint every time he saw her. He begged her to give him the medallion of her patron saint so he
could pray to him for her health and well-being.
"She gave me one," don Juan went on, "and that rattled the foreman to pieces. And when I got
the servants to pray at night he nearly had a heart attack. I think he decided then to kill me. He
couldn't afford to let me go on.
"As a countermeasure I organized a rosary among all the servants of the house. The lady
thought I had the makings of a most pious man.
"I didn't sleep soundly after that, nor did I sleep in my bed. I climbed to the roof every night.
From there I saw the man twice looking for me in the middle of the night with murder in his eyes.
"Daily he shoved me into the stallions' stalls hoping that I would be crushed to death, but I had
a plank of heavy boards that I braced against one of the corners and protected myself behind it.
The man never knew because he was nauseated by the horses - another of his weaknesses, the
deadliest of all, as things turned out."
Don Juan said that timing is the quality that governs the release of all that is held back.
Control, discipline, and forbearance are like a dam behind which everything is pooled. Timing is
the gate in the dam.
The man knew only violence, with which he terrorized. If his violence was neutralized he was
rendered nearly helpless. Don Juan knew that the man would not dare to kill him in view of the
house, so one day, in the presence of the other workers but in sight of his lady as well, don Juan
insulted the man. He called him a coward, who was mortally afraid of the boss's wife.
His benefactor's strategy had called for being on the alert for a moment like that and using it to
turn the tables on the petty tyrant. Unexpected things always happen that way. The lowest of the
slaves suddenly makes fun of the tyrant, taunts him, makes him feel ridiculous in front of
significant witnesses, and then rushes away without giving the tyrant time to retaliate.
"A moment later, the man went crazy with rage, but I was already solicitously kneeling in
front of the lady," he continued.
Don Juan said that when the lady went inside the house, the man and his friends called him to
the back, allegedly to do some work. The man was very pale, white with anger. From the sound
of his voice don Juan knew what the man was really planning to do. Don Juan pretended to
acquiesce, but instead of heading for the back, he ran for the stables. He trusted that the horses
would make such a racket the owners would come out to see what was wrong. He knew that the
man would not dare shoot him. That would have been too noisy and the man's fear of
endangering his job was too overpowering. Don Juan also knew that the man would not go where
the horses were - that is, unless he had been pushed beyond his endurance.
"I jumped inside the stall of the wildest stallion," don Juan said, "and the petty tyrant, blinded
by rage, took out his knife and jumped in after me. I went instantly behind my planks. The horse
kicked him once and it was all over.
"I had spent six months in that house and in that period of time I had exercised the four
attributes of warriorship. Thanks to them, I had succeeded. Not once had I felt sorry for myself or
wept in impotence. I had been joyful and serene. My control and discipline were as keen as they'd
ever been, and I had had a firsthand view of what forbearance and timing did for impeccable
warriors. And I had not once wished the man to die.
"My benefactor explained something very interesting. Forbearance means holding back with
the spirit something that the warrior knows is rightfully due. It doesn't mean that a warrior goes
around plotting to do anybody mischief, or planning to settle past scores. Forbearance is
something independent. As long as the warrior has control, discipline, and timing, forbearance
assures giving whatever is due to whoever deserves it."
"Do petty tyrants sometimes win, and destroy the warrior facing them?" I asked.
"Of course. There was a time when warriors died like flies at the beginning of the Conquest.
Their ranks were decimated. The petty tyrants could put anyone to death, simply acting on a
whim. Under that kind of pressure seers reached sublime states."
Don Juan said that that was the time when the surviving seers had to exert themselves to the
limit to find new ways.
"The new seers used petty tyrants," don Juan said, staring at me fixedly, "not only to get rid of
their self-importance, but to accomplish the very sophisticated maneuver of moving themselves
out of this world. You'll understand that maneuver as we keep on discussing the mastery of
awareness."
I explained to don Juan that what I had wanted to know was whether, in the present, in our
times, the petty tyrants he had called small fry could ever defeat a warrior.
"All the time," he replied. "The consequences aren't as dire as those in the remote past. Today
it goes without saying that warriors always have a chance to recuperate or to retrieve and come
back later. But there is another side to this problem. To be defeated by a small-fry petty tyrant is
not deadly, but devastating. The degree of mortality, in a figurative sense, is almost as high. By
that I mean that warriors who succumb to a small-fry petty tyrant are obliterated by their own
sense of failure and unworthiness. That spells high mortality to me."
"How do you measure defeat?"
"Anyone who joins the petty tyrant is defeated. To act in anger, without control and discipline,
to have no forbearance, is to be defeated."
"What happens after warriors are defeated?"
"They either regroup themselves or they abandon the quest for knowledge and join the ranks
of the petty tyrants for life."

 

Don Juan, Carlos Castaneda, Petty Tyrants, Self Importance, Impeccability

The Teachings of Don Juan by Carlos Castaneda - A Separate Reality

The Teachings of Don Juan by Carlos Castaneda

CARLOS CASTANEDA AND DON JUAN - ILLUMINATED AND ASCENDED MASTER

"Half-complaining, I told him that he had made me feel very uncomfortable by refusing to talk to me for the past two days. He looked at me and arched his brows. A smile played on his lips and vanished. I realized that he was letting me know I was no better than la Gorda. "I was provoking your self-importance," he said with a frown. "Self-importance is our greatest enemy. Think about it - what weakens us is feeling offended by the deeds and misdeeds of our fellow men. Our self-importance requires that we spend most of our lives offended by someone. "The new seers recommended that every effort should be made to eradicate self-importance from the lives of warriors. I have followed that recommendation, and much of my endeavors with you has been geared to show you that without self-importance we are invulnerable."

Use the Energy Enhancement techniques to drain the Self Important trauma-formed negative Karmic mass out of the Inner children to Integrate these troublesome Inner Children with Love, back into the Central Stem of the Soul, thus further integrating the mind.

Better out than in!!

"Self-importance is not something simple and naive," he explained. "On the one hand, it is the core of everything that is good in us, and on the other hand, the core of everything that is rotten. To get rid of the self-importance that is rotten requires a masterpiece of strategy. Seers, through the ages, have given the highest praise to those who have accomplished it."

"Warriors fight self-importance as a matter of strategy, not principle," he replied. "Your mistake is to understand what I say in terms of morality."

"Impeccability is nothing else but the proper use of energy," he said. "My statements have no inkling of morality. I've saved energy and that makes me impeccable. To understand this, you have to save enough energy yourself."

Don Juan said then that in the strategic inventories of warriors, self-importance figures as the activity that consumes the greatest amount of energy, hence, their effort to eradicate it. "One of the first concerns of warriors is to free that energy in order to face the unknown with
it," don Juan went on. "The action of rechanneling that energy is impeccability."

He said that the most effective strategy was worked out by the seers of the Conquest, the unquestionable masters of stalking. It consists of six elements that interplay with one another. Five of them are called the attributes of warriorship: control, discipline, forbearance, timing, and
will. They pertain to the world of the warrior who is fighting to lose self-importance. The sixth element, which is perhaps the most important of all, pertains to the outside world and is called the petty tyrant.

"A petty tyrant is a tormentor," he replied. "Someone who either holds the power of life and death over warriors or simply annoys them to distraction."

"The new seers, in accordance with their practice, saw fit to head their classification with the primal source of energy, the one and only ruler in the universe, and they called it simply the tyrant. The rest of the despots and authoritarians were found to be, naturally, infinitely below the
category of tyrant. Compared to the source of everything, the most fearsome, tyrannical men are buffoons; consequently, they were classified as petty tyrants, pinches tiranos. He said that there were two subclasses of minor petty tyrants. The first subclass consisted of the petty tyrants who persecute and inflict misery but without actually causing anybody's death. They were called little petty tyrants, pinches  tiranitos. The second consisted of the petty tyrants who are only exasperating and bothersome to no end. They were called small-fry petty tyrants, repinches tiranitos, or teensy-weensy petty tyrants, pinches tiranitos chiquititos"

"My benefactor used to say that the warrior who stumbles on a petty tyrant is a lucky one. He meant that you're fortunate if you come upon one in your path, because if you don't, you have to go out and look for one."

"By understanding the nature of man, they were able to reach the incontestable conclusion that if seers can hold their own in facing petty tyrants, they can certainly face the unknown with impunity, and then they can even stand the presence of the unknowable."

UK DVD STUDENT JAN 2011

"Oh and using your technique I've very recently just shifted a massive block from the sacral which has aided my grounding and all other chakras. From this my solar plexus will be working much more effectively and so will attract more abundance so paying you should be less difficult."



 

Hello Satchi and Devi!

I had some meditation experiences I'd like to share.

I woke up in the middle of the night last week and could not sleep so I decided to meditate.
I connected to the center of the earth and it was unlike anything I've ever felt. And
there has not been a day since that I don't think of that feeling. . I felt pulsing, gentle
waves of energy, like the oceans waves and just as much power as the ocean but there was a
mother like quality about it. It felt very sacred.

Since that day I keep getting information about being grounded to this force. And to think
that it all started because I pushed a stream of love out from my heart. Isn't it funny how something so
simple can change a life forever.

I am taking my time with the course. It is my main goal in life to integrate Energy
Enhancement into my being. I am ecstatic to think of what more sacred feelings I have in
store on my journey toward illumination!

And that is the first share that I wrote and now the second.

It is Oct. 22 and my paternal Grandfather died. I am remembering a dream I had of him
coming to me and sobbing and telling me he has led a "mutated" life.

It was not two weeks before that I was in meditation when I felt I had entered Samadhi.
Directly after I was done meditating my brother came to me and told me my Grandfather was
very sick and at the hospital.

In the course of the two weeks before his death I had been waking up at night and seeing a
Gremlin like creature on or by my bed.

In a past article I got from Satchi he says his own father came to him four days before he
died and Satchi cleared him and sent him to heaven. He said that usually family members who
die go to the most evolved person and can cause them cancer.

I know my Grandfather has come to me for help. I want to make my family happy! I know that
if I don't bring him to heaven he will give me cancer. I SEE it.

All this is what will push me more and more and more to Energy Enhancement. I have to do
it!!!!

And that is all I have to share.

Love and Light,

M, DVD Student, 23rd Jan 2011

 

USA DVD STUDENTS JAN 2011

"Dear Satchi and Devi, We were happy to hear from you!  We are still in the process of moving to a new place and we maybe making a much larger move than we once thought. We are very excited! The new levels sound great!  I turned 24 on the 9th of January and leading up to that day I was going through a lot of karmic mass related stuff. I worked everyday to ground some negative energy and I now feel better and lighter than ever! I understand more of myself now too and feel more able to show love to myself and all those around me. And also I feel this experience has made my meditation experience even stronger!

You are both an inspiration of love and light and we are blessed to have you in our lives!" Much Love and Light!"
USA DVD STUDENTS JAN 2011

"I had to burst out in laughter as I listened to Track 9.. It is perhaps the most powerful, insightful, cosmic, depth-charging piece I’ve ever experienced in all my lifetimes — I literally felt the gears locking into place as I watched and listened.

I was receiving downloads in my soul throughout that remain there untapped consciously for now, but I could feel their luminosity and comfort"

HONEY KALARIA EMAILS SATCHIDANAND JANUARY 2011

Dear Satchidanandji and Devi

Thank you for the birthday wishes.

How are you? I am so glad to hear about the Iguazu ashram project and wanted to wish you luck with the venture. I hope all is going well. I have just launched my new website - (www.honeykalaria.com) and will shortly be launching The Honey Kalaria Foundation to help various causes. I am also raising funds for an International Meditation Centre here in the UK.

Wishing you love and light


Honey Kalaria

Dear Honey,

How am I? Very well and working hard to make Our Energy Enhancement Foundation the Center of Excellence it already is.

A Five Star Retreat at the World Heritage Site of Iguazu Falls with High Flux Densities of Spiritual Energy in the Buddhafield, Air Conditioning, Upgraded Fixtures, Swimming Pool, Sauna, Incredible Vegetarian Food,

As you know, Energy Enhancement really works - and much better than most of the expensive courses taught by the so called, "famous" teachers.

I told you I had taken away your Energy Blockage in the Second, abdominal chakra, during your course with us and you said your menstrual problem had improved.

I often think that the seven step process could have helped Ramana Maharshi from succumbing to the Energy Blockage which gave him Cancer!!

Yes, Energy Enhancement is a much higher Revelation, meant to help the Enlightened take more, higher, Initiations!!

In your Course Report you said you wanted to know about your relationships and you had lifetime after lifetime of feedback about this, explaining how you came to be as you are now. The problem started with the loss of Your husband in a Turkish past life and you even met up with this guy, Ramiya, on the Course!!

The problem is one of loss, if you like, bereavement and fear of bereavement. To lose the person we are attached to. And the problem of attachment to the Prince and the problems this brought in its wake.

And the solution - a movement to being successful at other things which do not give that same problem. As when you were looking after the business matters of the Princess, with great success.

Yet every success is always followed by failure. In the end it is all taken away as we die, and all of our success, all of our empire cannot follow us into the grave.

Our only legacy is that which we pass on to the people of the future.

Our only legacy is our own evolution, which can only come from the very highest teachings and the highest aspiration.

It is the reduction of attachment which is the key...

Yoga Sutras of Patanjali - "Enlightenment comes through practise and non attachment"

It is the attachment of the Energy Blockages of the ego which needs to be dissolved.

And it is here that Energy Enhancement holds the key!!.

My aim in this lifetime, which cannot fail!! as it is the will of the Higher Masters that this be so, that Energy Enhancement become the new Meditation Technique, which influences all the World Meditations, improving them and thus improving the evolution of all Humanity. This must be so because there is no course in the world which teaches more than Energy Enhancement. It is the Source of all meditational excellence.

Personally, I do not care about name or fame.

It is sufficient that Energy Enhancement fulfils its purpose.

Thus I offer Energy Enhancement..

1 Further Levels to remove even more blockages.
2. Energy Enhancement Teacher Training and Certification.

All at the best lowest prices in order to support the movement of Energy Enhancement into World Centers like London.

This must be my aim, my purpose, my life!!

Yours in Love and Light,

Satchidanand

INCREASE YOUR PSYCHIC VISION

FROM DON MINIHANES COURSE REPORT - LAST WEEK OF ENERGY ENHANCEMENT REIKI MASTERY OPTION

"I am now in the last week of the course and I feel like a totally different person. I have regained myself and have been given from nothing having no psychic vision at all at the start of the energy enhancement course, a clarity of psychic vision that is breathtaking."

"As we practiced on each other with Energy Enhancement Level 4 techniques - Energy Connections and the Mastery of Relationships and How to remove Energy Blockages and Implants from our Students - we came very quickly to realise this. I could literally feel the energy moving inside each chakra as the other person worked within me from several meters away and when I worked on the other person I could see me projecting energy to them and could see where the blockages were within their chakras.

I could force the energy from my centres into their centres and clean their centre bringing the energy full circle back to me. You could tell the state of their chakras by the amount of energy returning to your own centre and this was achieved by mind power only.

Before I came here to learn Energy Enhancement Satchi said he would teach me to do it in this way and I was sceptical about this claim. I could never envision me having psychic vision, but I have now, I can now do astonishingly powerful Reiki sessions on people without going any where near them and distance healing over any distance is a piece of cake, incredible stuff."

"I am totally de-stressed and have expanded in every way. I feel stronger and fitter and much more mentally agile than I have ever felt in my life. The fog and confusion of life has gone and I feel that I have just received the inside information on everything. I am ready for anything and am wide awake. I am full of the most incredible energy imaginable and have Energy Enhancement Reiki that is so powerful it staggers me. I know a thing or two about Reiki and had a very strong Reiki connection before I got here, now I have a connection that is beyond description and I have yet to undergo the second initiation this week and then the masters. I have opted to take this as an extra and for anyone who is interested, I believe this is beyond anything you will ever experienced anywhere."

I am now equipped with life tools and healing tools that one only dreams of and there is nothing out there in the world that will ever faze me again. I am absolutely delighted that I decided to come here, because this experience has changed me, for the good of me and for all those that I will touch when I leave here. I am so excited and can’t wait to start exploring my new found talents"

PYTHAGORAS AND VEGETARIANISM

THE REVENGE OF THE COWS!!

Enlightenment is Your Birthright

PYTHAGORAS' CONTRIBUTION TO WESTERN PHILOSOPHY IS IMMENSE. It is incalculable. For the first time he introduced vegetarianism to the West. The idea of vegetarianism is of immense value; it is based on great reverence for life.

The modern mind can understand it far better now we know that all forms of life are interrelated, interdependent. Man is not an island: man exists in an infinite web of millions of forms of life and existence. We exist in a chain, we are not separate. And to destroy other animals is not only ugly, unaesthetic, inhuman—it is also unscientific. We are destroying our own foundation.

Life exists as one organic unity. Man can exist only as part of this orchestra. Just think of man without birds and without animals and without fish—that life will be very very boring; it will lose all complexity, variety, richness, colour. The forests will be utterly empty, the cuckoo will not call, and the birds will not fly, and the water will look very sad without the fish.

Life in its infinite forms exists as one organic unity. We are part of it: the part should feel reverence for the whole. That is the idea of vegetarianism. It simply means: don't destroy life. It simply means: life is God—avoid destroying it, otherwise you will be destroying the very ecology.

And it has something very scientific behind it. It was not an accident that all the religions that were born in India are basically vegetarian, and all the religions that were born outside India are non-vegetarian. But the highest peaks of religious consciousness were known in India and nowhere else.

Vegetarianism functioned as a purification. When you eat animals you are more under the law of necessity. You are heavy, you gravitate more towards the earth. When you are a vegetarian you are light and you are more under the law of grace, under the law of power, and you start gravitating towards the sky.

Your food is not just food: it is you. What you eat, you become. If you eat something which is fundamentally based on murder, on violence, you cannot rise above the law of necessity. You will remain more or less an animal. The human is born when you start moving above the animals, when you start doing something to yourself which no animal can do.

Vegetarianism is a conscious effort, a deliberate effort, to get out of the heaviness that keeps you tethered to the earth so that you can fly—so that the flight from the alone to the alone becomes possible.

The lighter the food, the deeper goes the meditation. The grosser the food, then meditation becomes more and more difficult. I am not saying that meditation is impossible for a non-vegetarian—it is not impossible, but it is unnecessarily difficult.

It is like a man who is going to climb a mountain, and he goes on carrying many rocks. It is possible that even when you are carrying rocks you may reach to the mountain peak, but it creates unnecessary trouble. You could have thrown those rocks, you could have unburdened yourself, and the climb would have been easier, far more pleasant.

The intelligent person will not carry rocks when he is going to the mountain, will not carry anything unnecessary. And the higher he moves, the lighter and lighter he will become. Even if he is carrying something, he will drop it.

When Edmund Hillary and Tenzing reached Everest for the first time, they had to drop everything on the way—because the higher they moved, the more difficult it was to carry anything. Even very essential things were dropped. Just to carry yourself is more than enough.

Vegetarianism is of immense help. It changes your chemistry. When you eat and live on animals.... The first thing: whenever an animal is killed the animal is angry, afraid— naturally. When you kill an animal... just think of yourself being killed. What will be the state of your consciousness? What will be your psychology? All kinds of poisons will be released in your body, because when you are angry a certain kind of poison is released into your blood. When you are afraid, again a certain other kind of poison is released into your blood. And when you are being killed, that is the utmost in fear, anger. All the glands in your body release all their poison.

And man goes on living on that poisoned meat. If it keeps you angry, violent, aggressive, it is not strange; it is natural. Whenever you live on killing, you don't have any respect for life; you are inimical to life. And the person who is inimical to life cannot move into prayer—because prayer means reverence for life.

And one who is inimical to God's creatures cannot be very friendly towards God either. If you destroy Picasso's paintings, you cannot be very respectful towards Picasso — it is impossible. All the creatures belong to God. God lives in them, God breathes in them, they are his manifestation, just as you are. They are brothers and sisters.

When you see an animal if the idea of brotherhood does not arise in you, you don't know what prayer is, you will never know what prayer is. And the very idea that just for food, just for taste, you can destroy life, is so ugly. It is impossible to believe that man goes on doing it.

Pythagoras was the first to introduce vegetarianism to the West. It is of profound depth for man to learn how to live in friendship with nature, in friendship with creatures. That becomes the foundation. And only on that foundation can you base your prayer, your meditativeness. You can watch it in yourself: when you eat meat, meditation will be found to be more and more difficult.

Buddha was born in a non-vegetarian family. He was a kshatriya — — belonged to the warrior race — but the experience of meditation slowly slowly transformed him into a vegetarian. It was his inner understanding: whenever he ate meat, meditation was more difficult; whenever he avoided meat, meditation was easier. It was just a simple observation.

You will be surprised to know that the greatest vegetarians in the world have been Jainas — but all their twenty-four Masters were born into families of non-vegetarians. They were all warriors; they were brought up as fighters. All the twenty-four Masters of the Jainas were kshatriyas.

What happened? Why did these people who were brought up, conditioned from their very beginning to eat meat, create one day the greatest movement in the world for vegetarianism? Just because of their experiments with meditation.

It is an unavoidable fact that if you want to meditate, if you want to become thoughtless, if you want to become light—so light that the earth cannot pull you downwards, so light that you start levitating, so light that the sky becomes available to you—then you have to move from non-vegetarian conditioning to the freedom of vegetarianism.

Vegetarianism has nothing to do with religion: it is something basically scientific. It has nothing to do with morality, but it has much to do with aesthetics. It is unbelievable that a man of sensitivity, awareness, understanding, love, can eat meat. And if he can eat meat then something is missing—he is still unconscious somewhere of what he is doing, unconscious of the implications of his acts.

But Pythagoras was not heard, not believed—on the contrary, he was ridiculed, persecuted. And he had brought one of the greatest treasures from the East to the West. He had brought a great experiment—if he had been heard, the West would have been a totally different world.

The problem that has arisen today, that we have destroyed nature, would never have arisen. If Pythagoras had become the foundation for the Western consciousness, there would not have been these great World Wars. He would have changed the whole course of history. He tried hard, he did whatsoever he could—it is not his fault. But people are blind, people are deaf; they can't hear a thing, they can't understand a thing. And they are not ready to change their habits.

People live in their habits, mechanically they live. And he had brought a message of becoming aware. Great meditative energy would have been released in the West. It would have become impossible to produce Adolf Hitlers and Mussolinis and Stalins. It would have been a totally different world. But still the same old habit persists.

We cannot change human consciousness unless we start by changing the human body. When you eat meat you are absorbing the animal in you — and the animal has to be transcended. Avoid! If you really want to go higher and higher, if you really want to go to the sunlit peaks of your consciousness, if you really want to know God, then you will have to change in every possible way.

You will have to look all around your life, you will have to observe each small habit in detail—because sometimes a very small thing can change your whole life. Sometimes it may be a very simple thing, and it can change your life so totally that it looks almost unbelievable.

Try vegetarianism and you will be surprised: meditation becomes far easier. Love becomes more subtle, loses its grossness—becomes more sensitive but less sensuous, becomes more prayerful and less sexual. And your body also starts taking on a different vibe. You become more graceful, softer, more feminine, less aggressive, more receptive.

Vegetarianism is an alchemical change in you. It creates the space in which the baser metal can be transformed into gold.

THE SECOND THING that Pythagoras also introduced into Western consciousness was the idea of reincarnation. That too is somehow related with vegetarianism. You will be surprised again: all the vegetarian religions believe in reincarnation, and all the non-vegetarian religions believe only in one life. This can't be just a coincidence.

In India, Brahminism, Jainism, Buddhism are the three great religions. They differ in every possible way—their ideologies are so different that you cannot find more different ideologies anywhere. Hindus believe in God, they believe in the soul. Jainas don't believe in God—a tremendously fundamental thing—a religion without God. Buddhists don't even believe in the soul—no God, no soul. You cannot imagine a religion without God and without the soul. Such are their differences.

But about one thing they are all agreed, and that one thing is the idea of reincarnation, rebirth. Even Buddha, who does not believe in the soul, agrees with it. It looks very absurd— how can there be rebirth if there is no soul? He does not believe in a soul but he believes in a continuum. He says: Just as you light a candle in the evening, in the morning when you are blowing it out can you say it is the same flame that you had started in the evening? It is not the same— and yet somehow it is connected. The flame has been changing the whole night, the flame was disappearing the whole night —it was disappearing into smoke and a new flame was replacing it each moment. In fact the movement was so quick, that's why you couldn't see the gaps. There has been a continuum—a constant change, but very quick and fast—one flame being replaced by another, the whole night.

So when in the morning you are putting the candle out, it is not the same flame that you had started—although it looks almost the same. The first flame and the last are connected— they are part of one chain, one process—but you cannot say that there has been one flame, one soul.

That is the Buddhist idea of reincarnation: the continuity continues but individuals disappear—there is no individual soul. But still Buddha believed in reincarnation. Jainas believe in reincarnation, Brahmins believe in reincarnation.

But Jews, Christians and Mohammedans don't believe. Those are the three great religions which were born outside India. How did it happen that all three Indian religions stumbled upon the fact of reincarnation?—although they don't agree in any other matter. Why do they agree about one thing? They could not disagree. From where did this experience come to them?

And you will be surprised—the answer is vegetarianism.

When a person is utterly vegetarian he can easily remember his past lives. His clarity is such that he can look into his past lives. He is not gross, his energy is not blocked, his energy moves easily. His river of consciousness can penetrate to the ancientmost times; he can go backwards as much as he wants.

The consciousness of a non-vegetarian is blocked—in many ways. He has been accumulating gross matter in himself. That gross matter functions as a barrier. That's why all the three religions that were born outside India, and have remained non-vegetarian, could not come to the idea of reincarnation. They could not experience it.

Pythagoras lived in India, lived the life of a vegetarian, meditated deeply, became aware of the past lives, could see himself moving backwards. He could understand what Buddha means when he says, "Once I was an elephant, once I was a fish, once I was a tree."

The idea of evolution has been here in the East for ever— and in a far more subtle way than it has been given to Western science by Darwin. Darwin's idea is very raw: he says monkeys have become man— although Darwinians have not yet been able to prove it, because they are still searching for the link between the monkey and the man. And the problem arises: why did only a few monkeys become men? What happened to other monkeys? And monkeys are basically imitators — if a few monkeys had become men then all the monkeys would have imitated. What happened to the other monkeys? Great imitators they are—why only a few men?

And the monkeys are still there! Thousands and thousands of years have passed and monkeys are still monkeys. And you don't come across a monkey suddenly becoming a man...one fine morning he wakes up and he is a man. Nobody has ever seen this miracle happen.

The question is: where are the links between monkey and man?—and the difference is great, it is not small.

Just the other day somebody asked, "John Lilly has said that man is not the only being on the earth who has consciousness; there are other beings too who have more consciousness than man." The questioner has asked, "Is it true? Is John Lilly right?"

But those other animals have not discovered man yet—it is John Lilly who discovers those other animals. It is man who goes on discovering. Certainly the discoverer has more consciousness than the discovered. Even if we find some day that some animal has a great, evolved brain, we are the discoverers. That great brain has not discovered us just.

There are animals who are very evolved, but nobody is as evolved as man. And the difference is big! John Lilly has been working on dolphins, and he thinks that dolphins have a far better evolved consciousness. If you just meet John Lilly some time, tell him that dolphins have not discovered him— he has discovered dolphins. And the discoverer has more consciousness, obviously.

Dolphins are not saying anything about themselves—it is a man who is saying something about dolphins. They cannot even prove something about themselves. Dolphins are beautiful people, and Lilly is on the right track, but dolphins don't have a higher consciousness than man. They have not produced Buddhas, Patanjalis, Pythagorases—not even a John Lilly.

The Western concept of evolution, the Darwinian concept of evolution, is very gross. The Eastern idea of evolution is very subtle. It is not a question of the body of a monkey becoming the body of man—it has never happened; of the body of a fish becoming the body of man—it has never happened. But the inside of the fish goes on growing; it goes on changing from one body to another.

The growth, the evolution, has not happened from body to body: the growth has been happening in consciousness. When a monkey attains to a certain consciousness, the next birth will be that of man not of a monkey. He will die as a monkey and will be born as a man. The evolution is not going to happen in the body of the monkey itself. That body has been used by the soul—or whatever you call it, the continuum— the body of the monkey has been used, now the soul is ready to take a better body, a body where more possibilities of growth will become available.

The soul moves from one animal to another animal. The bodies are not evolving, but souls are evolving. The candles are not evolving, but the flames go on jumping from one candle to another. The flame goes on rising higher and higher. The evolution is of consciousness, not of the material, physiological body. That is where Darwin missed the whole point.

But in the East for at least ten thousand years we have been aware of it. The awareness came through meditation and the awareness was based in vegetarianism—because people started remembering their past lives.

It was a basic technique with both Buddha and Mahavira: whenever a disciple was to be initiated, the first thing that both Buddha and Mahavira required was that he had to go into his past lives. Great methods were developed so that one could move into past lives.

And once you start moving into past lives, this life will be utterly transformed. Why? Because once you see that all the stupid things that you are doing now, or wanting to do, you have been doing for many many lives... you have done those same things many times, and each time nothing was attained.

For example, if you are mad after money and then you remember that in the past life also you were mad after money, and you had succeeded, and you had become a rich man, a very rich man, and then you died... and all that richness and all that wealth was of no use. It was taken away by death, and you died as empty as ever, as poor as ever. And you remember even before that: you were a king and you had a great kingdom. And still you were frustrated, and still you lived in misery, and you died in misery. And again you are doing the same and hankering for more money? It will become impossible. The longing will simply fall flat on the ground. How can you go on repeating the same stupid thing again and again if you can remember? You can go on repeating the same stupidity again and again if you cannot remember.

The idea of reincarnation is not a philosophical idea: it is an experience, it is utterly scientific. People have remembered their lives.

When you have grown a little deeper into meditation... we are going to do all those techniques here too. But those techniques will require that you be absolutely vegetarian, otherwise you will not be able to go beyond this life. Your mind cannot move—it has to be so light, featherlight, that it can simply pass from one existence into another. And the lighter it is, the deeper it goes.

It can not only remember that you were a man in the past life—slowly slowly, you will remember that you have been animals. And, sometimes, when the depth grows, you will remember that you have been trees, rocks. You have lived for millennia in many forms. And if you remember that once you were a fish, it will become difficult for you to eat fish.

Vegetarianism leads you into remembering your past lives. And knowing your past lives, you become more and more a vegetarian—because seeing that all are brothers and sisters, the whole existence, you cannot kill animals. It becomes simply impossible! Not that you have to prevent yourself; it simply becomes impossible.

Pythagoras was a real adventurer. Alexander the Great also came to India, he also took away many things from India, but they were useless things—diamonds and emeralds and gold. That's what Alexander the Great took away from India—useless things. Pythagoras was a real seeker. He gathered real diamonds, real emeralds: diamonds of consciousness, emeralds of consciousness. And these were two tremendously significant, tremendously pregnant approaches—that of vegetarianism and the idea of reincarnation.

Once it happened: Pythagoras saw somebody hitting a dog. He said, "Do not hit him!" to the man who was beating the dog. "It is the soul of a friend of mine. I recognized it when I heard it cry out."

Now this looks utterly ridiculous to a Western mind, to the Western scientific attitude. Even in those old days, people must have laughed: "What nonsense he is talking about! — 'Don't beat the dog because I have recognized a friend.'" He was simply trying to teach the idea of reincarnation in every way possible.

And the third thing: he was, again, the first to introduce the concept that life is a wheel—a wheel of birth and death. The wheel goes on moving and we go on clinging to the wheel. And the wheel is repetitive; again and again it will move on the same track. Nothing new will ever happen. Birth will come, you will become young, you will be full of sex and great desires, and then you will be spent and you will be old, diseased, ill, sick, frustrated, tired. And then death... and again birth... and so on and so forth.

Each birth brings a death, each death brings a birth. It is a vicious circle, and the wheel goes on moving. In India the word for the world is samsara. Samsara means 'the wheel'. Youth or childhood or old age are just spokes of the wheel, and we go on clinging to the wheel and the wheel goes on moving — as everything else moves in the world. The earth moves around the sun, and the sun also moves around some unknown sun. And the moon moves around the earth, and earth and moon both move around the sun, and the sun around some other sun, and so on and so forth. And all the stars are moving.... And everything is moving in a circle! Seasons move in a circle.

Life is a wheel and the wheel is repetitive. You will never reach anywhere if you go on clinging to the wheel. In the East it has been a known fact that we have to jump out of the wheel — only then are we free. To be free from this wheel of birth and death is to have freedom. Then you simply are. Then you are not moving.Then there is no past and no future but only the present. Then now is the only time and here the only space.

That is the state of nirvana, moksha—freedom. That is the real kingdom of God. One simply is... all turmoil gone, all storms finished, and there is absolute silence. In that silence there is a song, in that silence there is music—unheard music, unstruck music. In that silence is joy, in that silence is bliss. And that bliss is eternal, it never changes.

All change is if you are clinging to the wheel. If you drop out of the wheel, all change disappears. Then you are here and always here.

That state is the real search of all trueseekers: how to get out of this wheel of birth and death, how to enter into life eternal where no birth ever happens and no death either, where nothing begins and nothing ends, where all simply is—how to enter into this God. Just the other day, I was saying God means 'that which is'... how to enter into that which is? These are the sutras by which to enter into that which is.
