Meditation Preparation

 

The first thing required to meditate is one-pointedness. Do not stop thinking about God for a single moment. To do this, we must put some limits and constraints in our life. This will focus our efforts and increase self-discipline. we must examine ourselves minute by minute, 'Did i eat more? Sleep more...talk more?' In this way, practice self-examination.

We should make a daily plan, a timetable. We should divide our time correctly and do things at specific times.

To contain our life in meditation, this is the goal. This is meditation. In order to achieve this, we need vision that sees good everywhere and God in everything at all times. We must train our five senses. This training is connecting all with God. Vairagya or discrimination is cutting the world.

Only when we do all these things will meditation come. By making ourselves full of perfection every moment, meditation will follow. Follow the formula for devotion. Then, meditation will arise naturally.

Why cut and connect?

 

We should cut the world and connect to God. When we do this, the Pranic energy associated with that comes to us. We must connect every object we see with God; we must do this. I have written about this as Yoga Sutra. To connect everything we see with God, is Yoga Sutra. For example, if we see a door, we should think it is a door to heaven. Swami gave the example for the word "window". He said,"Go down, down, down and win." We should go deep inside and get pranic energy.

If we do everything like this, the Pranic energy will come to us. we can pull Pranic energy from everything we see.

We should not find faults in others. We should not think of them also. If we do, our Pranic energy will go to them. By conserving our Pranic energy and protecting it, we can easily attain God. Bhakthi is not only bhajan singing; this is the beginning stage, elementary school level. One should move from devotion to wisdom. Wisdom is the high school level. Then we cross this to Vairagya, discrimination. This is university level. Swami said all are in elementary school. You must aspire to study at the Vairagya University, only then will you escape re-birth.

How does wisdom come? It is only through satsang. It is only when we join in satsang, read wisdom and analyze, that we know what is True and Permanent. At this stage, we can remove attachment for perishable things. Removing desire is Jeevan Mukthi. Removing attachment is Vairagya. We should push all away except God. This is Vairagya.

On one side, we should connect all we see with God. This is wisdom. On the other side, when we collect all this wisdom, it becomes Pranic energy. Vairagya means cutting, pushing away all that is permanent. Cutting is Vairagya, connecting is wisdom; we see all as God. It is only when we have vairagya and wisdom that we attain true devotion.

THE FIVE ELEMENTS

 

The five elements directly affect the five senses. If we are not pure, the five elements will lose their purity. Therefore each one of us is responsible to bring harmony to the five elements. The feelings that are externalized on the worldly things pollute the five elements. This pushes man into the cycle of birth and death. Today, all the five elements are in complete disharmony. Due to the disharmony in the 5 elements, there are many earthquakes, floods, cyclones and forest fires. These cause immense destruction.

SACRED NADI READINGS

Released on 1st Jan 2014

In this book, we have seen God's great mysterious unfolding drama. Just as each person has their own point of view, the saints, sages and siddhas have written according to their viewpoint, angle and the extent of Truth revealed to them. Though each nadi is different, all describe the same events, but with the individual emphasis of the sage or siddha. Four main themes run throughout the nadis:

1.      Swami returns in the Sathya Sai form.
2.      Amma is Swami's Shakthi.
3.      Amma's body merges as a jyothi with Swami.
4.      The coming of the Sathya Yuga, the Golden Age and Prema Sai happens.
