⚘️INVOKING THE GURUS' HELP IN MASTERING YAMA AND NIYAMA⚘️

Here is another practice for going deeper with yama and niyama. This one can be very powerful if you have prepared yourself. By that I mean “prepared yourself" in the sense of having begun developing a real inner Image
relationship with the Guru; and also have made a habit of integrating study of the Guru's teachings into your regular spiritual practice.

🍁Sit in front of your altar, with the pictures of the Gurus there; and sit close enough so you are really looking into their
eyes, where you can actually feel you have come into the aura, the electromagnetic field, of their vibrations emanating from those pictures. Then after practising Kriya Yoga, look at each one of the Masters in turn, and pray: "Make me a master of yama and niyama." Do this with

As the guru sat in lotus posture on a wooden bench with a screen behind him, Ganga Dhar Babu arrived with his equipment. Taking every precaution for success, he greedily exposed twelve plates. On each one he soon found the imprint of the wooden bench
and screen, but once again the master’s form was missing.
With tears and shattered pride, Ganga Dhar Babu sought out his guru. It was many hours before Lahiri Mahasaya broke his silence with a pregnant comment:

“I am Spirit. Can your camera reflect the omnipresent
Invisible?”

“I see it cannot! But, Holy Sir, I lovingly desire a picture of your bodily temple. My vision has been narrow; until today I did not realize that in you the Spirit fully dwells.”

“Come, then, tomorrow morning. I will pose for you.”

1-A constant question I receive from people is

..what is the significance of empty houses in a #BirthChart?!

Does an empty house in your chart mean, that no action will happen there?

And are these meaningless?! (1/8)

#Astrology.
2-Or does it mean that every house should have one planet?!

This is how #Astrologers look at it

Most charts have a handful of empty houses.

No chart has all the houses filled up with #Grahas. (2/8)

#AlgorithmsOfJyotish
3-Clearly, those houses that have the most number of planets in your chart

..tell you that these house significations,

..or #Bhavas will play an important role in your life (3/8)

#HappyTeachersDay2020

Perfection is a mirage. But the journey in search of perfection is a road worth traveling. Everyone from parents to spouses to children and friends, all of them have taught us something in that journey.

Continued... Long thread
#Part1 Image
Every moment is a learning experience if we keep our eyes open. Even strangers can leave with unforgettable lessons. Hence I salute everyone who has touched my life in this journey of five decades in pursuit of perfection.
#part2
I perhaps should have written this on Guru Purnima. But the idea just hadn't happened. Waiting for the next Guru Purnima is like looking for a mirage in these times. We don't have a warranty card against the pandemic. Hence it is "Happy Teacher's Day".

1-Hi!

Good Morning!

Continuing our #Dialogue on #Gems and #GemTherapy, today we shall dwell on the next two #GemStones.

#YellowSapphire and #Diamond. (1/13)

#Upayas
2-Yellow Sapphire is D highest quality Gemstone used 4 #Jupiter.

Substitute Gemstones for Yellow Sapphire are Yellow Tourmaline, #Citrine, Yellow #Zircon and #Topaz.

In my view, I have seen that Yellow Sapphire is one of the most widely prescribed Gemstone. (2/13)

#Remedies
3-Being related to #Jupiter it is bound to activate within you – the #Energy of the #Universal #Guru.

Out of the four #Vedic #Purusharthas, of #Dharma, #Artha, #Kama and #Moksha, Yellow Sapphire well and truly stands for #Dharma.

1-Through the #Grace of the #Godeess ,we have been on a cosmic #Joyride since quite some time now!

Let’s continue with the same with the discussions on some more #Shakti #Mantras! (1/21)

#mysticalastrology
2-Let’s begin today with #Klim

Klim – pronounced as #Kleem is about the wonderful, seductive #God - #Krishna

#Klim is blissful and full of #Ananda – because Krishna is #Bliss (pure #Ananda!) (2/21)

#गुप्तज्योतिष
3-#Klim also relates to #Sundari the #Goddess of #Love, #Beauty and #Transcendence

#Klim activates #Desire, #Love and #Attraction

In #VedicAstrology #Klim is used to invoke #Venus and sometimes #moon. (3/21)

#Belief_Faith_God_and_Me this is a subject , which to me is very personal and i do not dwell or share it with others; to me it is sacrosanct and it is not meant for a debate and/or a discussion; however a damn good tweet by @chittukuruvi4 got me thinking and hence this; this is
2. not going to be a long one and neither is it about religious practices as prescribed; i have always been a person who goes by what my heart says rather than the peanut brain of mine; my great grand parents/my grandparents and my parents had belief/faith and above all practised
3. what is said in our puranaas/ithihaasas; their belief and faith was impeccable, but they were also pragmatic - they have never imposed themselves on any of their siblings; my experience i have noticed - whether it be my grand uncles/aunts, my own aunts/uncles and my cousins..

1-We have been talking about #Mantras and their place in the #Vedic #Tradition.

Today, let’s dwell on the #Shakti Mantras – quite perhaps the most #esoteric and #Powerful entities in their own right. (1/19)

#गुप्तज्योतिष
2-A word of caution here.

Shakti Mantras are like an Atomic Bomb

They are extremely powerful

..and should be practiced with due consideration, initiation and guidance by your #Guru and under your full #Intuition. (2/19)

@ijyotish @shashankupadhy_

#astrologicalnuggets
3-Fundamentally, Shakti Mantras are extremely powerful, mono or single syllabled mantras.

In the higher Yogic practices they have a special usage. (3/19)

A thread explaining the significance of #GuruPurnima.

द्वन्द्वातीतं गगनसदृशं तत्त्वमस्यादिलक्ष्यम् ।
एकं नित्यं विमलमचलं सर्वधीसाक्षीभूतम्

The first full moon (Pournami) after the summer solstice in the month of Aashadhi is when the #Guru(#Adiyogi) first decided to enlighten his disciples & bestowed the Sapta Rishi's( 7 sages) with yogic understanding . Hence it is celebrated as #GuruPurnima . +
3/7 * Meaning of GURU *
Gu - Ignorance
Ru - Elimination
So a Guru is hailed as someone who imparts education & transfers the pearls of wisdom attained over years to his/her students thereby removing ignorance. Our life is incomplete without a Guru. +

Two young disciples were walking in the forest when they came across a beautiful young lady sitting beside a narrow river and crying piteously.

When questioned, she said, she had crossed the river from her village on the other side to pluck flowers with her friends. They had gone back but she developed cramps in her legs and could not swim back. They promised to get help but no one came.

“Can you please help me cross?” she begged.

“No” said one, “we are celibates. Our Guru has said close contact with females is bad for our spiritual progress.”

A disciple was with the Guru for thirteen years. He thought he was a true seeker and practised his Sadhana meticulously.

Or so he thought.

He also accompanied the Guru wherever he went and enjoyed the special attention showered on him for being close to the Guru.

But the disciple still felt that the exalted Divine experience, he had read of, in various scriptures had not yet been revealed to him.

One day the Guru suggested that they go for a quiet walk by the seashore, just the two of them. They walked close to the sea and watched the waves.

#WhyDoWeNeedAMentor..

I read a #TooGoodNotToShare short story .

It’s surely worth a read...

Once upon a time, a cow went out to graze in the jungle. Suddenly, she noticed a tiger racing towards her.
She turned & fled,fearing that the tiger would sink his claws into her any moment. She desperately looked for someplace to escape & at last, saw a shallow pond.Barely evading the tiger’s reach,she jumped into the pond & in the heat of the chase,the tiger blindly leaped after her.
To the surprise of them both,the pond was extremely shallow yet filled with deep recesses of mud. After toppling over each other, the cow and the tiger found themselves a short distance apart, stuck in the mud up to their necks.
