Belonging to a Hindu family I was taught from the very beginning that whenever I meet elders(relatives, teachers, grandparents etc.) I must touch their feet to get their “blessings”. This is a tradition of blessing by elders when they greet someone younger in age or rank.And as I am atheist I pray to God for getting “blessings”.I have been using the word “blessings”till now. But what is the actual meaning of the word “blessings”.
A little girl named Shanti Devi in the early 1930s claimed to remember her past life. When she was four years old she told her parents that her real home is in Mathura where her husband lived. Her parents discouraged her this type of behaviour and this is quite obvious for any parent to do so. She ran away from home at the age of six. Back home, she stated in school that she was married to a merchant Kedar Nath and died ten days after giving birth to a child. The headmaster located him and even the merchant said that nine years ago he had lost her wife Lugdi Devi who died giving birth to their son. When Kedar Nath travelled to Delhi pretending to be his own brother, Shanti Devi immediately recognized him as her past life’s husband. As Shanti Devi knew several details about Kedar Nath’s life with his wife, he was soon convincedthat Shanti Devi was indeed Lugdi Devi in her past life. Isn’t it anamazing and interesting real life incident?
In 1995, a match was played between famous boxer Mike Tyson and Peter McNeeley. This match was a normal boxing match but after the match when its footage was being watched, everyone saw something strange in it. It was clearly visible in the footage of the match that a man was taking pictures of Tyson from a device like a smartphone, whereas at that time it was difficult to imagine smartphones other than very large and antenna phones. This footage was investigated but nothing was found. So was this the case of time travel? Was it so that a person from the future travelled back in time?
जब उपासक किसी स्थूल मूर्ति की उपासना करने लगता है, तो पहले वह देवता का ध्यान करता है, पूजन करता है, प्रतिष्ठा करता है।पीछे सोचता है कि जिस रूप का मैं चिंतन करता हूं उसमें शक्ति है। तब उस शक्ति की खोज में चलता है। यहीं वह स्थूल से सूक्ष्म की ओर बढ़ता है। वस्तुतः स्थूल से सूक्ष्म की ओर प्रयाण में ही उपासना का रहस्य है। भगवती काली की उपासना में यही तथ्य है।
जिस देश में इतने व्यापक पैमाने पर लक्ष्मी पूजा की जाती हो , उस देश में और समाज में दरिद्रता बनी रहे, यही महान आश्चर्य का विषय है। या हमारी प्रार्थना में बल नहीं है या हम उस महाशक्ति को भूल गए हैं, जिस महाशक्ति कि हम साधना कर रहे हैं। अशक्त बनकर महाशक्ति की उपासना व्यक्ति करे यही महान विरोधाभास है।
Subtle body is the boss of your physical body. If you want to sing, eat, play, dance or doother sort of activities then it is not you who want to do these things. It is your subtle body who wants to do such things. You are under the control of your subtle body for 24×7 until your subtle body leaves your physical body. This is what we call death of physical body.
