Om SathGuru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae

MAHAAN SRI SESHADRI SWAMIGAL OF THIRUVANNAMALAI

“There! Vittobha goes in Royal Style!”

Sookshma Drishti is the ability to perceive subtle objects. The atom is a minute thing. Even more minute is the Jeevaswarupa (Soul). The soul is very minute and there is nothing more minute than it. While the soul is not perceptible for a person with ordinary senses, it becomes manifest to a Brahmajnani. Great sages like Vasisht also possessed this power. The following is an example of Swami’s perceptive power that was innate to Him.

One day Swami was running in the streets of Thiruvannamalai pointing to the sky saying, “There! Vittobha goes in Royal Style! Ah! Ah!” (Sri Vittobha Swami- Maha Samadhi-Polur-34 kms from Thiruvannamalai)

On the day when Swami made the above observation, Sri Vittobha had attained Maha Samadhi. Swami made those remarks at 6 a.m. And at 11 a.m. a telegram was received in Thiruvannamalai that was an intimation of the news. Mahaan had perceived this by virtue of His Sookshma Drishti.

(Sri Vittobha Swami was a jeevan Mukta.)

Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae

Disciple:

Could you tell me about one of your experiences of the Divine?

Master:

Great divinity lives within man.

When by my Guru’s Grace, I reached the heart centre, (not physical) in meditation I could see the entire cosmos. The heart centre is most wondrous. In that centre I saw and experienced love. I also experienced the centre of knowledge, which is the centre of all arts. From the heart centre I moved up to the centre between the eyes, and that centre would release the most celestial fragrances.

When I reached the cerebral centre-  the highest centre-  I saw the Supreme Light blazing, by a thousand suns. Then I heard the most melodious harmonies in the spaces surrounding the inner sun, and nothing in the outer world can surpass within. I would get into the state of natural Samadhi. In the midst of this light I saw a glorious spectacle – a tiny blue dot – the Blue Pearl.

Man is great, he is sublime, and he is divine. God’s glory lives in him in all its fullness.

Sahasrara and Samadhi

Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae

Disciple:

Does the illumination of the Sahasrara entail the automatic attainment of Samadhi?

Master:

The divine light in the Sahasrara is as brilliant as a thousand suns, but it is not hot. Through sustained contemplation of that divine light, the mind becomes totally still.

Then the mind relinquishes thought and the individual consciousness ceases. That state is also called Samadhi, total stillness.

Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae

Disciple:

Would you briefly describe Kundalini Yoga?

Master:

Kundalini Yoga can not be described briefly because it is such a grand and extensive yoga.

Kundalini Yoga is inspired and directed by Chiti, the same Cosmic Energy that sustains and directs the order of the Whole Universe. This energy moves in a channel at the Central Core of this complex Human Body. It has two aspects: inner and outer. The outer aspects sustain the order of one’s mundane life. The inner aspect lies dormant, but when it awakens it sustains and directs the process of MAHA Yoga, the great yoga. Kundalini Yoga is a totally independent autonomous yoga and completes itself fully without the help of any other yoga. It is a Self – existent and a self-propelled Yoga.

The Kundalini stabilizes and controls all the seventy-two thousand subtle nerves of the human body. When it awakens by the grace of the Guru, it purifies the whole nervous system and makes the body radiant.

It dispels all diseases, purifies all the body centres, and makes itself an abode of divine peace within the heart. All the senses are refined, cleansed, and strengthened. As this process culminates, the Kundalini reaches the Sahasrara, revealing a Divine Brilliance. Sparkling in the middle of this brilliance in the Cerebral Centre is a dazzling BLUE DOT, which the Kundalini enables one to see. Not only that, but by means of this Blue Dot, or Neela Bindhu, a yogi is shown the subtle worlds, all the Gods and Goddesses, and all that can not ordinarily be perceived by the physical senses.

As this process continues, Samadhi occurs spontaneously. The Jiva, the individual soul, is lifted above pleasure and pain. After establishing the aspirant in Supreme Bliss, the Kundalini becomes tranquil.

This Kundalini is the Para Shakthi (Universal Energy) of Para Shiva (Lord of Universe), the transcendent energy of the Supreme, auspicious principle.

Externally it inspires the creation of the world; internally, it inspires the yogic process. By means of the independent, self-sustaining Kundalini, Maha Yoga unfolds automatically. This yoga can also be called Siddha Yoga, the yoga of perfect masters. It is the synthesis of the four Yogas – Hatha Yoga, Raja Yoga, Mantra Yoga, and Laya Yoga-and it is therefore called Maha yoga, the great yoga. It can also be called Chief Yoga. Chiti is the primordial consciousness that is the source and essence of the world in answering your question about Kundalini Yoga; one could fill an entire book. It is a vast subject.
