TODAY we are entering into the next chapter KAIVALYA PADA. Patanjali describes the after and side effects and the very science of Kaivalya.
Kaivalya, the very word is kevala, pure aloneness. Aloneness is not loneliness, when you are one but still having the craving for the other, its loneliness. But when you are one and alone with the existence, it is aloneness. Its Kaivalya. All oneness is aloneness.
The science of pure awareness. What constitutes aloneness. What are the side effects and after effects of aloneness and unnecessary myths surrounded by aloneness. Everything is presented in the form of reproducible science by Patanjali.
Janma aushadhi mantra tapas samadhi jah siddhayah
In the 1st chapter itself Patanjali talks beautifully about the science of miracles. All the Masters have translated it as - Siddhis arise from practices of previous births or can be acquired through drugs, mantras, austerities or Samadhi.
I humbly disagree with all the translations of the Masters. Unfortunately all these translations are done by the masters after the British era where much of the science and knowledge of siddhis are lost. I just want to present the facts to you. I had the fortune of sitting at the feat of few people who had the complete knowledge of all the Siddhis. Its not like an ornament you can hide. It posses you, you cant possess the context, context possesses you.
Unfortunately the lack of words or not, these words have been translated in a very incomplete way by many of the different translators. When the word Siddhi is translated simply as mental powers or psychic powers, the whole meaning is lost.
The word drug or medicine, all masters, nobody is able to think that the siddhi, the ultimate, enlightenment itself, can be experienced just by medicines. I am telling you from my authority and the great masters who’s feet I learnt from, the ultimate spiritual experience can by experienced by Siddha medicines, not LSD, or other addictive drugs, through proper Siddha medicines which raise your awareness, the direct complete enlightenment can be achieved by Siddha medicines.
Even Osho translates that as LSD, I say NO, not only will it NOT lead you to enlightenment, but will also damage your health. There are some masters who believe siddha medicines can lead you to extraordinary powers but not enlightenment but I say the kaivalya, being established in enlightenment is possible through siddha medicines. If this is not true, why will Patanjali keep this in the first chapter.
So the word Siddhi should be translated not just by psychic powers or mental powers, the ability to reproduce the same experience in others by initiation and by the mere presence. The ability to be established and transmit the extra ordinary powers and experiences is what I call kaivalya siddhi.
Lets analyse the sutras
1) Janma-by birth we can express these qualities, only these persons are incarnations.
2) Aushadhi – you can get established in enlightenment itself by the great science of alchemy. From my young age I have seen hundreds of powers expressed by my masters. There are some things I am fanatical about, building temples and visiting temples. Yesterday, my routine got over, today I am going to different temples.
When I wanted to travel to different places after Kupamal inspired me, she gave me a root of particular plant and told when ever I am hungry just rub the herb on the stomach or the liver area. I used that herb from 12 years to 22, till I settled back to my body. Jan 1 2002 that was the time when I was revealed my mission and equipped to carry out the mission. Every time I rub the herb, my hunger disappeared.
I want the mediums I train, to be prepared to face the scrutiny. If you are afraid of handling the many eyes that will be on you and the questions that might be asked, the scrutiny, who will not be intimidated, who will be more peaceful, settled, to face the scrutiny of the world. Sometimes when you are free in your mind, the energy flows freely. But when you are intimidated, the energy flow disappears. But I am training a group of people to be prepared.
I can tell you from my predecessors life, Yedaikalar received enlightenment from the guru. His guru was going for a bath and he saw this shepherd devotee, he gave him a cup of milk with the herb and he got enlightened. How nice it will be to have a pill for enlightenment. Not only will I prove that Siddha herbs exist to make you enlightened. I will make it. It can establish you in the ultimate enlightenment itself.
Now Viboothy appears in the hands of one of the devotees every day. I will prove this to the world as a regular routine. Next I will train people to live without food or water.
3) Mantra, sound, can lead to extraordinary experiences and be established in Kaivalya. The sound of Kaivalya is Aum, but it can not be contained in those syllables. Omkara is the uncreated sound of the universe, when you meditate on that, you will experience being established in enlightenment .
4th way is Austerity. Austerity is not a complete word but I am using it due to lack of words, the society from which this came from does not know the concept of Tapas.
To be with the ultimate truth, allowing it to express through your body, trusting it even before it expresses itself through your body, and allowing it to express through you as a great channel even before you have experienced it in the factual level. Bringing actuality to factuality is tapaha.
5) Samadhi, glimpse, experiencing the extra ordinary opening into the cosmos, Kaivalya means not only experiencing. Samadhi is like becoming the king of a country. Kaivalya is ruling properly, radiating samadhi is kaivalya. Not swindling the country and keeping the money in some other country!
All these five lead to not only expressing psychic or occult powers but establishing yourself is Siddhi.
The teacher gurus who don’t express or have, they go on abusing the mystic gurus who express extra ordinary powers and experiences. The mystic gurus are not great orators. When you are rich, you just keep doing your job.
Once in a while, the mystic gurus have to reply back, to shut these teacher gurus. First time the combination of mystic and teacher gurus is happening through me. Always the teachers gurus will be orators, loud mouth. Mystic Gurus will not be able to stand on stage and express these sciences. First time, I am not only a mystic guru I can challenge the logic of the teacher Gurus through their own logic.
They have brought a lot of confusion without understanding the whole. They don’t know the power of just a blow. What can happen, how many people can fall into ecstasy just by the blowing of air from the mouth.
The real Kaivalya is establishing yourself in enlightenment, expressing the great powers, and transmitting the great powers.
Understand the essence of this sutra
By birth, by Siddha medicines, by mantras, by austerity, by samadhi, the kaivalya, siddhis-(being established in enlightenment, radiating and sharing the extra ordinary powers and experiencing, this is what Patanjali wants to call as siddhi), this can be attained through all the above 5 means.
This is the sacred secret Patanjali wants to reveal through this sutra.
In the next sutras, I will reveal the sacred secret of every word.
