Man has five koshas and each one propels the mind’s vibrations.
Which one the seeker CHOOSES to operate from, is the decider of the energy pathway the seeker extends towards his Guru and the Divine.
It is on THIS path, chosen and created by the seeker, that the SAT is received by him and translated by his own mind.
To understand or misunderstand.
Satsang brings about awareness and a sense of discipline in his mind, preparing him to become a disciple. The main ingredient of growth is his sense of DEVOTION.
The path of BHAKTI softens his artificial self and arrogance and willingly and lovingly he ultimately surrenders it...moving towards BHAKTI YOGA.
The different degree of Bhakti changes his/her karmic behaviour/discipline and thus the vibration of the disciple.
There are mainly four kinds of disciples.
The Bhakti Bhav when highest makes the disciple’s energy like petrol or dried leaves.
Just a spark of Gyanam from the Guru will ignite the light from within. Bhakti absorbs Gyan...towards Yoga!
The second carries Bhakti like camphor, with the warmth and TEJ of Satsang / Guru Vakyam, his artificial self starts melting and spiritual fragrance starts emitting. Bhakti and Gyan...towards Nishkam Seva.
The third is like wet wood. The Guru takes time and great effort in drying the absorbed characteristics that make the wood heavy, and stop it from lighting up. Takes many seasons to become dry. Satsang is not absorbed. Bhakti and Gyan...used for selfish needs.
The most difficult is the rock mentality, all efforts of the Guru are washed over it. He remains cold and in a state of "I am right."
Today we celebrate the highest grace bestowed by the Divine to one on the path of BHAKTI and achieved YOGA.
What does Bhakti do?
It connects the yearning heart with the power of love and surrenders all “self” driven thoughts into acts done for HIM.
Everything is done towards service to HIM.
All receiving are from HIM.
HE then bestows the grace of RESURRECTION!
Divine is permanent.
Attaining Bhakti YOGA is permanent.
GRACE is permanent.
Born again never to die!
