MEDITATION-CONCENTRATION ON COSMIC SUN…………..AWAKENS THOSE WHO ‘SLEEP’
In order to focus ones thoughts one pointedly the easiest method is meditation. In meditation for focusing purpose an image is most required. It should be such that on the one hand it is attractive and yet full of sacred qualities. From this standpoint one can choose the golden sun of dawn full of brilliant light and this is virtually the best choice.
Just like solar rays our mental energies too get scattered. As a result of this their influence is perceived in very minute measure. If only they are focused their root power in an extraordinary form becomes extremely potent. After focusing this scattering one can see many miracles as a result of this concentrated energy. If solar rays are concentrated on a magnifying glass on its point of focus fire erupts. If steam comes out of a very narrow opening with its energy the engine of a locomotive train moves at great speed. If the outburst of gun powder is focused on the butt of a gun the bullet is released with a thunderous sound and also with immense force. If dam water is released from a small ante room an electric station house starts functioning. If scattered thoughts are centralized and concentrated at one single point, everyone is aware of how much mental alertness and focus of thinking is achieved.
In order to concentrate ones thoughts one pointedly the easiest method is meditation. In meditation for focusing purpose an image is most required. It should be such that on the one hand it is attractive and full of sacred qualities on the other. From this standpoint one can choose the golden sun of dawn full of brilliant light and know for sure this is virtually the best choice. The sun knows no blemish and is very sacred in nature. Further it is a storehouse of immense energy and is very attractive to the psyche.
Whatever is seen in this visible world can be called a miracle of the sun. The 3-fold wave of heat, light and sound is present in the cave of the heart of Mother Nature. It is because of this that various elements come into existence. In this manner various atoms and molecules have been created. From the flow of the 3 energies 2 are related to the sun i.e. light and heat. One can thus decipher their origin. The existence of living beings and plants has been possible because of the chemical contact with the sun. Seasons are a visible result of the various movements taking place in it. The temptation to obtain pollen from this great flower (sun) makes the earth revolve around it like a honey bee. The very thought of absence of the sun makes the psyche tremble with fear and stares wide eyed at gloomy darkness. Darkness full of dire silence where there is no cause for the basis of movement/activity.
Along with the increase in the movement/force of the universe the sun is the origin of spiritual glories. Via the medium of meditation on contacting its subtle consciousness man becomes the master of faith, divine intellect and other such glories. Ridhi-Sidhis or Divine Powers overflow by themselves. The external shining cosmic sun by becoming the soul of the inner personality of an aspirant scatters the light of wondrous glories and powers. Many seed potentials present in their latent form start growing and flowering due to this process of meditation.
The ordinary process of meditation-concentration in solar worship encompasses visualizing the rising sun at dawn with half shut eyes first and then shutting them fully. These sentiments should be intense that divine power in the form of solar rays is pervading ones every pore of the body both within and without. In the preliminary stage from the standpoint of energy attraction it is most beneficial to have a pool of water nearby. It is for this reason that spiritual aspirants stand in water facing the sun and they meditate while chanting their Mantras. Many continue wearing wet clothes for that length of time. Many while worshipping the sun mentally chant their Mantra and thus complete their brief ritual. If one wants to worship at Brahma Muhurat (auspicious time between 3 am and 6 am) but because of clouds gathering one cannot visualize the sun clearly then one should approximately gauge the sun’s position and after facing it complete ones deep meditation. This is just one reference of many customs that are prevalent.
The easiest mode of meditation involves sitting in an open area. The time should be pre dawn hours and keep a water vessel on the right hand side. As a form of idol worship incense sticks can be lit. In a clean place with a clean body and clothes, sit in a meditative posture. The meditative posture has 5 requirements: 1. Peaceful mind 2. Steady body 3. Spine erect 4. Palms in ones lap 5. Eyes lightly shut. This is called Dhyana Mudra which is necessary and useful for all types of meditation.
To make such a conducive environment it may take 5 minutes in the beginning. After this one should render ones meditation deep as per the following injunctions:
Morning……..eastern direction……..red sky……..golden sunrise.
Golden sun……..sun……..radiant Lord.
Sun God……..light of wisdom……..divine intellect……..solar power……..fire energy……..intense.
Infinite energy of the sun and outer space along with nectar rains on the aspirant.
Due to rain of nectar soul power evolves, thrills ad rejoices.
In the cosmic soul power there is might, alertness and beauty.
Aspirant surrenders, merges, unites, concludes and takes refuge in the sun.
Entry of solar power into soul center……..experience of radiance in the emotion based consciousness.
Divine light is seen in gross body, brilliance in subtle body and divine vigor in causal body.
There is intense manifestation of steadfastness, divine intellect and faith.
There is divine experience of purity, joy and a sense of being special.
There is incessant leaning towards storehouse of light.
There is experience of formidable exuberance.
On practicing continuously with a powerful resolve this imaginary description becomes increasingly clear to the subtle eye. As a result our enthusiasm jumps n-fold. Yet it is important to understand that the clarity or absence of it with respect to the imaginary form is dependent on intellectual creation of it. Many visualize the imaginary form while sleeping or in the waking state. In many there is no capacity for the brain to visualize these forms. Hence based on the seeing or otherwise capabilities one cannot infer the success or failure of meditation. The main principle is experience of divine sentiments. If there is intense love of Savita (Sun God) one should understand that there is good progress in meditation-concentration along with augmenting of faith.
The result of the above is that due to the grace of Sun God loads of Divine powers present in the gross, subtle and causal body of an aspirant are awakened. Anatomists are said to come across groups of entwined nerves in the gross body. Those who are capable of studying the subtle body see subtle parts like 5 Chakras, 5 Sheaths/Koshas, subtle nerve impulses etc. Apart from psychological activities there are many important centers in the subtle body. They are the Heart Chakra and Navel Chakra. The Navel Chakra is the base for all movements taking place in the gross body. Heart Chakra is the center of heaven found in the subtle body. At the center of the scalp in the causal body lies Sahasrar Brahmaloka that helps attain salvation or Moksha.
In the ordinary state these 3 Chakras are ignored, unknown and non -evolved in a major way. But when via meditation and other deep spiritual practices the divine splendor of Sun God starts circulating in it slowly the 3 start awakening and evolving. The experience of its flowering is gained by the aspirant himself during deep meditation. He/She experiences that the manifestation of Savita in the inner consciousness is influencing it miraculously. Solar power is penetrating the 3 bodies and other parts present within them. Solar consciousness opens the path of all round welfare of an aspirant or devotee.
With an anguished mind he asked all the Aryans, King Divodas and Jamadagni that why, why is he being forced to lead a life worse than that of a fallen beast? You will not understand Vishwarath! He is a robber, uncultured, uncouth and unruly. Only his outer form is that of man but his nature is inhuman. Thus spoke Divodas.
On hearing this answer he started thinking deeply. The unrest between Aryans and thieves for generations together had baffled him. Suddenly his compassion took a firm vow. The vow was: I shall search for that science which will transform human consciousness wherein divine nature shall be activated in human bodies. The voice of resolve got transformed into solar worship. The profound Savita worship unfolded many mysteries. At last one day a very great mystery was unearthed. In all directions the news spread that Vishwaratha has found Gayatri Mahavidya or Super Science of Gayatri. It could convert robbers into civilized Aryans. Uma the daughter of the chief of robbers Shambhar along with infinite number of robbers were converted to Aryans. Along with the sound of ‘Tat Savitur Varenyam’ the entire Aryavrata made Vishwaratha the friend of the world which also meant Vishwamitra (seer of Gayatri Mantra).
