A new phase began today with homa as usual. Below we bring you a short video from the homa. Bodhinatha gave a very inspired upadesha on Gurudeva’s teachings about distinquishing between superconcious knowledge and sub-superconscious intuition. It is through meditation that we can begin to cognize the intuitive state of consciousness and then later recognize his in daily life. Of course it also means we need to do the work to open our awareness, reducing the “noise level” of life to the point where we can actually listen, hear and observe.
Bodhinatha reminded us of Gurudeva’s teaching that:
“Observation is the first awakening of the superconscious mind and this observation is cultivated through abstinence from excessive talk.”
Bodhinatha pointed out that some people chatter on all day long, but everything we say goes into the subconscious and has to be process. If we are talking all the time, the subconscious becomes overloaded. We need silence to process and lower the noise level, then we can be more in touch with our intuitive faculties.
Lord Siva is the Supreme Being of the universe, not one of many gods. To Saivites Siva is the supreme being; to Vaishnavites Vishnu is the supreme being. The soul starts with experiencing the world. On one side the soul is pulled by veiling grace toward the world. On the inside the soul is pulled by revealing grace toward God. Resolving karma, maturing in the world, fulfilling dharma, we move toward imperturbability, realization, moksha.
