THE STARS, PLANETS AND US
Understanding the effects of nature on Humans is one part of it. The Planets co-ordinate according to "cause and effect" in a person's life relating to his past Karma.
Like the sun, other planet's rays reaches us.This is predicted in an astrological Terms.
Sun - Suriyan
Jupiter - Viyaalen
Neptune - Ketu
Moon - Santhiren
Venus - Sukiren
Mars - Sevvaai
Saturn - Sani
Mercury - Buutan
Uranus - Ragu
This relation between us and the planets are simplified in the form of Navagraha (9 planets) Prayers. Though it is not of much help, praying to the supreme power in the form of the planet's ruling god (Durga, Muruga, Siva) gives mental strength (courage) to withstand it.
THE BODY WITHIN US
Our body consists of skeletons, muscles, cells and other major systems. But invisibly, we have other 2 types of bodies within the normal one.
The normal body (Isthula udal) that functions with the assistance of the skeletons, muscles, cells and the major systems (heart, lungs, digestive system, brain, blood system etc). This normal body is discarded upon death.
An astral body (suutchama udal) is linked with the senses. These senses are used for feeling, tasting, hearing, seeing and smelling. It is also linked with our anger, desires, jealousy and others.
This astral body can leave and return to the normal body while asleep. It may feel like a dream. People who face sudden death are usually seen in this body. Those who lose their body parts during accidents will move around the same manner in this body which are described as ghost. Higher spiritual gurus or beings also move around in such way and at times mistaken as god.
Within the astral body is the Causal body (Karana Udal), which is related to the karma's effects. Upon death, this causal body travels in the air with recorded memories of all the karma done by a person. On rebirth, it continues its duties in co-ordination with the planets.
Though our life is totally under the influence of nature; here is a simple chart that generally explains the "cause & effect" of karma if we take sickness as the topic.
Sun rules the head area
Moon rules the face and stomach areas
Buutan rules the neck area
Sevvaai & Ketu rules the shoulders and arms
Jupiter rules the Heart
Sukiren the private area
Sani & Ragu rules the legs
When the planets moves (Peyirchi) the rays will join another ray in its place (house) which will result in two or more sickness at a time or acute problems.
Our Breath and Mind Revelation
Most of us would wonder how God would hear our prayers? It is the invisible waves that transmit our prayers to God. It is similar with Radio broadcasting system.
Our soul as part of Brahmam can communicate by airwaves. Similarly, when our mind deeply concentrates on God, the prayers within us will reach god by the airwaves. That's the reason on why they say praying by heart is very efficient.
Similarly, meditation is very effective in all divine matters as it picks answers from the airwaves and keeps us informed. Breathing is a silent mantra of Brahmam. If you listen to the breathing pattern, you can hear the sound 'Soh' when breathing in and 'hum' when breathing out. Great ones say that this is the mantra of the soul.
Knowing or unknowingly every living thing is praying to Brahmam. When breathing stops death occurs. Everyone can live without body parts but no one can live without breath.
Breathing through the right and left side of the nose is differentiated as 'pingalai' & 'edaikalai'. Exercising it in 'Pranayaamum' method makes the air to reach the Kundalini power. Kundalini power plays the main role in self-realization that eventually leads to understanding the Brahmam.
Our Breath and Mind Revelation
The breath reaches all energy wheels/chakras in a systematic way. It begins from the tip of the backbone called Muladharam. This is just above the kundalini power. It looks more like an elephant's head and its trunk.
This is one of the reasons for worshipping Lord Ganesh first. The air assists us for clearing the bowels and other related works.
When the breath reaches other Chakras, it boosts up the functions accordingly. The breath on reaching the head does the same but when in meditation it helps to control the mind waves to relax. This relaxation spurs our knowledge in understanding various divine matters and nature. This is the area for contacting the supreme power more efficiently.
However, this is not as easy as one thinks for the past present karma, our staunch devotion and open minded perception about other believes will play its part till we are capable to know Brahmam as it is. Our birth stars can roughly reveal the karma that we would experience as it is represented by our behaviors.
The following stars will reveal which behavior influences you most among the three types:-
The Thamasam Gunam
Aswini, thiruvathirai, mirugaasishem, pusam, magam, swathi, sithirai, anusham, moolam, sathaiyam, ahvittam, uthiraatathi.
Asuras are those who will justify their misdeeds.
Such stars are the following:-
Krithigai, ahyilyum, magam, visaagam, sithirai, kettai, moolam, avittam, sathaiyam.
When a person tries to gain higher spiritual knowledge, he will have to overcome all these obstacles controlling the mind.
When meditating the Brahmam with willpower and deep devotion, the prayers will weaken all obstructions caused by the planets.
The mind with the help of the breath will elevate the divine feelings. This makes us realize that the soul is separate from the body.
INCARNATIONS OF GOD
God incarnates to guide mankind according to the phase of time and assuring the right knowledge for upholding moral law.
Sriman Narayana is famous for his various incarnations. Though all are taken to oppose or dispose demonic people and to protect moral law, the incarnations do have other purposes too.
Matcha Avatar (Fish form)
This avatar was taken to retrieve the Vedas that were stolen and hidden in the universal ocean by the Asuras from Lord Brahma. The Vedas are the guide for all creations. This Matcha avatar informs us that creations began in water.
Koorma Avatar (turtle form)
When the Asuras and Devas churned the Milk Ocean with the huge Mehru-mountain with the Vasuki snake used as a rope, the mountain began to sink into the ocean. Koorma avatar was taken to support the mountain.
This avatar represents lives that survived both on land and water. It also could be taken as churning the kundalini power. It has been said that the kundalini power looks more like a snake coiled around the mountain that looks like a 'lingam'
Varaha Avatar (boar face & human body)
This avatar was taken to bring up Earth to the surface of the universal ocean. This avatar also symbolizes the beginning of creation on Earth. It could also mean the bringing up kundalini power to the 'Suvaathistaanam', the Earth energy chakra to begin creation.
Narashimha Avatar (lion face & human body)
This avatar was taken to kill the demon king who was protected by the boon granted by Lord Brahma and no normal person born for a woman could kill him. This also symbolizes those who live like demons or on people who looked normal but possesses demonic behavior that could be overcome by great devotion. To simplify, all feelings distracting one away from the right path can be saved by devotion.
This Avatar was taken to stop King Mahabali from conquering the 3 worlds. However, he was blessed by Vamana Ruba to rule the lower worlds. This proves that devotion with great desires will prevent one from reaching the upper worlds. However, this avatar shows that God forgives all the wrong doers if they surrender at his lotus feet and fulfill their wishes in a corrective way.
Parasu Ramar Avatar (warrior sanyasi)
Parasu Rama was a sanyasi but he avenged his father's murder by killing all the kings for doing injustice. (I feel that the kings killed by him might be the ones who were on the wrong path. The great king Dasaratha, father of Rama was able to escape this because he was one of the rightful Kings.
However to avoid Parasu Rama's vow he kept on getting married after each stipulated period). This revenge attitude only proves that anger was the reason for all killings, which only accumulated his sins. It is a good example that shows on how a highly spiritual person will diminish his qualities by the enemy within called anger. At later stage for many years, he carried out penance and meditation to clear his sins.
Rama was symbol of all good qualities a human being should possess. He taught others how to be a good son, brother, relative, friend, warrior, savior, citizen and king. He showed his love, humbleness, respect, faithfulness and kindness to all. The Avatar name Rama was derived from the 2nd word of Na ra yana and the 2nd word Na ma sivaya.
This word is hidden in the sound combined to become 'aum'. "Aum" is the name of Brahmam. This name is a mantra linked to the 'third eye' the Ajna-chakra controlled by Sky. This chakra's activation relieves us from all sins. protection and salvation too.
Krishna's avatar is well embedded in everyone's memory. This was an important time for mankind to receive the message of god in the form of 'Bagavad Gita'. Krishna's birth as the 8th son and his viswa rupa tharisanam reveals the 8th stage of self-realization where all types of worship surrender at this point. Krishna also claims himself as the supreme power.
He informs us that 'One - Krishna' worship method is good enough than practicing other ways. He has also emphasized the other higher stages in meditation that is explained later.
Buddha avatar was taken to inform us that desires are the cause of all sufferings. He showed love to all and experienced self-realization through meditation. He requested his followers not to neglect the path of Darma and encouraged others to search a Buddha within them and become a Buddha too.
We can clearly see the religious conflicts around us. Many have lost their faith in religions and some in God. There are people who are free thinkers and others who just pass their time in enjoying life. Eventually, those without true faith in God will lose it while those without faith in God will begin to gain faith.
Too many restrictions, misinterpretation of true values of the holy books and other improper guidance for personal benefits are the reasons for such changes. Due to this, there are many seeking different approaches towards God but unable to get the right guides for their minds' quest. However, according to the fate of Kaliyuga the above changes are for the beginning of the next revelation stage. In mind revelation, the 10th stage has been acknowledged as the 10th incarnation - KALKI.
The messiah of Kaliyuga is a warrior who is capable to confront the evildoers, a guru to guide others to an enlightenment stage and a timekeeper preparing everything for the next Yuga. When different river waters emerge into the sea and become seawater, no one could scoop a particular river water again from it. Similarly, whoever it is or whatever religion one adopts one can't differentiate his god upon realizing the form of 'light/jothi or Brahmam'.
Since time never waits for anyone, it is advisable for us to meditate and realize the 'light or Brahmam' form of the supreme. Each individual is a 'Kalki' upon attaining such perfection. The power of the supreme is in the name and not in ones' appearance.
Once your mind begins to follow 'one god' worship (as told by Krishna), the mind waves are controlled from going astray. Instead of running wild, it will begin to penetrate deeper within to find answers about our life. This is the experience of Lord Buddha.
Experiencing the supreme light form in us and forgoing all indifferences while understanding nature and its creation is the 10th mind revelation's power. When such perfection spreads among us we will be able to protect against all visible and invisible evil forces to help mankind with god's grace.
"I am experiencing improved changes about everything through all these years under the guidance of our Divine Guru Sri Kalki Jothi. I have yet to receive more facts in meditation that I wish to share with you.
The joy and contentment is something I wish others could experience too. Nature is for all and so is God. The universal creation is the greatest miracle. God never chose particular groups to shower kindness.
It is we who had laid the barriers, so choose a right guide for yourself to attain perfection."
Sri Sarada Amma
