The vast power of the Spirit

By Dr K K Aggarwal
Filed Under Spirituality - Science Behind Rituals | Tagged With: , , | | Comments Off on The vast power of the Spirit

Om Poornamadah, “Om Poornamadah Poornamidam, Poornaat Poornamudachyate

Poornasya Poornamaadaaya, Poornameva Avasihyate”

The whole is whole; if you take away the whole away from the whole the whole will still remain. (That is infinite, this is infinite, from the infinite, the infinite has come out. Having taken the infinite out of the infinite, the infinite alone remains).

(In Vedanta “That” represents super consciousness, God or the Brahman and “This” the visible universe)

Atman, which makes up our body, is 99.99% space and if we look at the rest, it is also nothing but space or void. This void or ‘akasha’ is what is called Brahman, God or consciousness and is a web of energized information. This web of information of inner space called inner consciousness is the Atman or the Soul. This is connected with the outer space in the universe having a similar web of energized information called the Spirit or Brahmand.

This spirit has been given many names by different religions. Allah (Islam), Buddha (Buddhism), Brahman (Hinduism), Christ (Christianity) or Wahe Guru (Sikhism), all signify the same. This spirit, the energized field of information, is a powerful expression of live energy which can move faster than the speed of light. Soul is nothing but an individualized expression of the spirit.

This energy containing information in the spirit cannot be seen, felt, touched, tasted or smelt. It is beyond the perception of five senses. One cannot destroy it with a weapon, fire, water or air. This consciousness is embedded in the space of each and every cell of the body. It is like sugar added to the milk. Once added, you cannot find it as it gets embedded with each and every drop of the milk.

Soul originates from the spirit. Each soul differs from the other by way of the subtle layer of consciousness called the ‘sukshma sharira’ which is controlled by the triad of actions, memories and desires. Spirit is like light, which is always positive and only removes darkness. The basic nature of the consciousness is “truth and bliss”. The soul and the spirit are devoid of hatred, anger or jealousy and are full of unconditional love. They are nothing but a treasury of information about everything. This infinite information is capable of doing anything, including miracles. It is like the flame of a candle, which can light an infinite number of candles, while still retaining its illumination to the same degree.

Dr Deepak Chopra once said that the soul is like the voice of Lata Mangeshkar coming out of a radio, and even if you break the radio, you will not find Lata Mangeshkar in it. Similarly, even if you cut the body into pieces, you cannot find the physical presence of the spirit.

Spirit is present all over, be it the universe or the living beings. Any amount of spirit taken out from it will not make any difference to the spirit. In religious terms, the infinite or the vastness is equated and described by the blue color, and that is one reason why most of the gods are represented by the blue color, or are shown in the background of blue sky. This only represents the vastness and infinite character of the consciousness. One of the Gurus explained to his disciple the description of the spirit by the following equation. 1×1=1, 1/1=1 or, in other words everything is one. One can also explain it by the equation that infinity when added, subtracted, multiplied or divided by infinity will result in infinity only.

This infinite potential in our mind is present in between the thoughts and can be experienced by enabling oneself to go in between the thoughts by a process called mediation. One can experience the silent gap between the thoughts either with the use of primordial sound mantra as a vehicle or by way of yoga. People who have learnt meditation and have achieved the ability to go into the silent gaps can accomplish everything in their life using the principles of intention and attention. After any intention is introduced in the silent gap, a new reality can be created.

“That which is born of the flash is a flash; that which is born of the spirit is spirit” (John)

You are the Temple of God and the Spirit of the God Dwells in You

By Dr K K Aggarwal
Filed Under Spirituality - Science Behind Rituals | Tagged With: , , , , , , , , | | Comments Off on You are the Temple of God and the Spirit of the God Dwells in You

This sutra from the Bible reflects the union between the spirit and the soul. The ‘Spirit’ represents the Parmatama or the Brahman and ‘You’ represents the individualized spirit or the Soul (Jivatama).

A temple is a place of worship and also the place where the God resides. Every human being represents a temple (place of worship) where God exists (one’s soul) and this soul is nothing but the essence of God (the spirit).

One should treat every individual in the same manner as the same spirit dwells in every human being. The soul is also the reflection of individual’s past and present karmic expressions. Most people are in the habit of looking and searching for God in artificial temples, gurudwaras and churches, not realizing that the same God is present within us, provided we undertake the internal journey to look for Him.

He is present in between thoughts in the silent zone and can be approached by adopting any of the three pathways: Karma Yoga, Bhakti Yoga and Gyana (Gnana) Yoga.

Doing selfless work with detachment to its results; working with the principles of duty, devotion and discipline and/or regularly doing Primordial Sound Meditation or other types of meditations can help one reach the stage of self–realization or meeting one’s true self. Once there, one can have all the happiness in life.

Temple enhances soul to soul connectivity

By Dr K K Aggarwal
Filed Under Spirituality - Science Behind Rituals | Tagged With: , , , , , , , , | | Comments Off on Temple enhances soul to soul connectivity

A Temple, Gurudwara or a Masjid can also be understood by studying the concept of computer internet-based virtual e-communication.

The physical body can be compared to that of a computer hardware and the subtle body with three application softwares of a computer namely, Mind (Microsoft Word), Intellect (Excel) and Ego (Power Point).

These three application softwares are controlled by Chitta or the life force, which is a combination of Prana, Tejas and Ojas (or Operational Software in computer language). Without chitta or operational software, the body cannot function. A dead person (dead computer) will be devoid of chitta (operational software).

The application and operation softwares in turn are controlled by the soul, which is nothing but energized information or soul. This energized information in the body in Vedic language is called Shiva Shakti, where Shiva represents information and Shakti represents the energy or the power of the software.

This energized information or the soul can be equated to a very high speed internet connection www.god.com-drkkaggarwal for me. For another person, for example, Mr B S Sokhi, the soul communication will be www.god.com-bssokhi.

Both these souls will be communicated to a virtual internet called GOD or SPIRIT. The same can be represented as www.GOD.com and in this virtual consciousness or GOD, these pages will be similar to Facebook pages for individual members. For example, there will be a page called www.GOD.com-drkkaggarwal and another page called www.GOD.com-bssokhi.

Whatever you do is converted into a virtual memory and a copy of that is saved in both www.god.com and www.GOD.com. This way the phrase that GOD is watching each and every action can be explained.

Increasing one’s connectivity with GOD is like increasing the bandwidth of a computer internet. The same can be done in the body by controlling the mind, intellect and ego and by learning the process of Meditation, Pranayama and living a parasympathetic lifestyle.

Mobile towers or satellites are used to enhance connectivity for computers.

The natural towers in the body are called Chakras or the automatic ganglion. They behave like internal towers and intensify our communication with the soul and the spirit. In the outside world, this work is done by a Temple, Gurudwara or a Masjid.

According to the Vedic philosophy, we should practice focusing on our Chakras or ganglions regularly to increase our internal communication.

With collective consciousness of people (more than 1% of the population) focusing on a particular area or a stone, it acquires the powers of a communication tower or satellite.

A stone that becomes a focus of the collective consciousness of the people becomes a GOD ideal and the process is called Pratishthan.

A Mandir, Gurudwara or a Masjid, where the collective consciousness of the people gets focused, becomes a source of increase connectivity between the body and the soul. A person sitting in such an environment therefore, finds himself more near God, Allah or Wahe Guru.

The story of Hiranyakashyap where God comes out of the pillar on the request of the Prahlad and kills Hiranyakashyap basically proves that even the impossible is possible if you focus your concentration on the object of concentration and give preference to object of concentration over other thoughts.

This explains how in the past the collective consciousness of the people could bring rains or light candles or diyas. This also forms the basis of collective prayer.

The collective thoughts of the people get posted to the virtual Mandir, Gurudwara and Masjid and when a critical mass of 1% is reached, everyone will start working towards what is taught.

Can a mantra or sound be used as a medicine?

By Dr K K Aggarwal
Filed Under Spirituality - Science Behind Rituals | Tagged With: , , , | | Comments Off on Can a mantra or sound be used as a medicine?

The answer is yes. The difference between a Mantra and a sound is that the Mantra sound is an energized sound with medicinal values. There are many aspects of Mantra as a sound:

1. The type of sound matters. It is a well known that chanting of vowel sounds produces interleukin 2 in the body, which has the same action as that of aspirin and works like a natural painkiller.

Chanting of nasal consonants produces delta activity in the EEG and has similar action like tranquilizers. Chanting of other consonants has different actions in the body for example chanting of LUM reduces fear, VUM reduces attachments, RUM reduces doubt, YUM increases love, HUM increases truthfulness and AUM non-judgmental activities.

2. Mantra sounds can be vibratory or non-vibratory. Vibratory sounds use nasal consonants and vibrate bones starting from mandible, spine, and the automatic plexus lying along the spine. Chanting of nasal consonants leads to parasympathetic state.

3. Any Mantra chanting associated with reduced respiratory rate leads to parasympathetic state of the body. Ideal is to reduce the respiratory rate to 4 per minute and then continue it for next 20 minutes that means 80 breathes in 20 minutes. This can be done by chanting, for example, the complete Gayatri mantra in one respiratory cycle.

4. How does one chant also matters? The yogic way of chanting is when the mind is in mantra or the chanting. This leads to deeper relaxation.

5. Whether you chant with the understanding the meaning of the Mantra or not also matters? If you do that the chanting benefits will be more. Foreigners do not understand the meaning of Indian Mantras but yet they get benefits. But if they chant with understanding the meaning of the Mantra, the health benefits will be more.

6. Chanting a mantra with its meaning in the mind invokes the power of intention. It’s like getting connected to any search engine on the internet and typing your query. Your consciousness in our body is the internet and the intention the search button.

7. Chanting a mantra with its meaning in the mind also results in emotions and expressions which have an added advantage.

8. Overtone chanting has additional benefits. The new sound heals not only those who are chanting but also those who are listening and bystanders.

9. Group chanting is more powerful. If 1% population chants together, rest 99% also gets the benefits.

10. One can also do distance healing by chanting at a far distance. The only way one can explain this is by understanding consciousness as an internet cum social site model. In this understanding each one of us has our page in the internet (soul) as well as a page in the cloud internet (spirit). All our pages are connected with every person in this earth through the cloud internet. People can chant at a distance and their audio file with intent automatically gets posted on their soul internet and the cloud internet. The person for whom we are chanting the prayer gets the benefit whenever he is connected to the cloud internet.

11. During chanting, the mind diverts. Continuously chanting of Mantra for 12 seconds means concentration, 12×12 seconds is contemplation and 144×144 seconds is meditation. So by concentrating on the object of concentration, the mantra, one can avoid diversion of the mind.

12. The intensity or the loudness of the chanting sound also matter. Higher the loudness, less will be the effects. Japa meditation involves two hours of Mantra chanting to get the benefit. In a non Japa meditation, these benefits can be acquired in 20 minutes. Thoughtless chanting is more powerful than verbal Mantra chanting. Vipasana is chanting without Mantra where you are just aware of the breath and one has to do this type of meditation for hours together to get the benefit.

13. In Chautha or Teravi (mourning period), we have one hour of chanting of Mantra or prayers. This helps relax the mind, shifts one from sympathetic to parasympathetic mode. In the initial 15 minutes, there is sympathetic overactivity and the person is restless. As the time passes, parasympathetic state takes over and by the time one hour is over, parasympathetic state is at its full blown activity and at that time getting connected to cloud internet is easier. Attending the entire one hour of Chautha ceremony is only for those who are connected to the dead person and want to get distressed. These people have empathy for the deceased person. Those who have sympathy mostly show up before or after the Chautha ceremony to complete their formality. In Chautha, we say that Bhagwan Uski Aatma Ko Shanti De. God will forgive him only if the soul is under distress, which can only happen if there are some non–fulfilled desires and these desires will always be linked to a particular person. Therefore, only those who have guilt will feel that the diseased person’s soul is not at rest. In a Chautha ceremony one can only remove this guilt in the parasympathetic phase towards the end of the Chautha ritual and seeks forgive and forgiveness.

14. In different religions, this has different implications. In Hinduism, we only attend Chautha of whom we know but in Islam people attend the mourning ceremony of people whom they not even know. They believe in mass prayers and pray for the soul of the deceased person. In Islam this mass prayer message gets written on the cloud internet and has mass effect in the community.

In Islam, a person usually says Mein khuda se tumhare liye dua mangunga. It is possible for them as they offer Namaz prayer five times in a day and when they ask for Dua for someone they put the intent in the cloud internet which can be retrieved by others.

In Christians, it is different. The dying patients or the relations ask the doctors and others to pray with them and not only for them.

• Energy is the raw material of the universe.

• Information is the organization of energy into reproducible patterns.

• Consciousness is living information and energy (living energized information)

• Consciousness is, therefore, intelligence.

• Intelligence is information and energy that has self-referral or the ability to learn through experiences and the ability to reinterpret and influence one’s own information and energy states.

• Consciousness is live, advanced, software-driven energized information.

• Closest example: Advanced computer software which can type, correct, interpret, edit and store spoken or read information.

Om Poornamadah, “Om Poornamadah Poornamidam, Poornaat Poornamudachyate
Poornasya Poornamaadaaya, Poornameva Avasihyate”

The whole is whole; if you take away the whole away from the whole the whole will still remain. (That is infinite, this is infinite, from the infinite, the infinite has come out. Having taken the infinite out of the infinite, the infinite alone remains).

(In Vedanta “That” represents super consciousness, God or the Brahman and “This” the visible universe)

Atman, which makes up our body, is 99.99% space and if we look at the rest, it is also nothing but space or void. This void or ‘akasha’ is what is called Brahman, God or consciousness and is a web of energized information. This web of information of inner space called inner consciousness is the Atman or the Soul. This is connected with the outer space in the universe having a similar web of energized information called the Spirit or Brahmand.

This spirit has been given many names by different religions. Allah (Islam), Buddha (Buddhism), Brahman (Hinduism), Christ (Christianity) or Wahe Guru (Sikhism), all signify the same. This spirit, the energized field of information, is a powerful expression of live energy which can move faster than the speed of light. Soul is nothing but an individualized expression of the spirit.

This energy containing information in the spirit cannot be seen, felt, touched, tasted or smelt. It is beyond the perception of five senses. One cannot destroy it with a weapon, fire, water or air. This consciousness is embedded in the space of each and every cell of the body. It is like sugar added to the milk. Once added, you cannot find it as it gets embedded with each and every drop of the milk.

Soul originates from the spirit. Each soul differs from the other by way of the subtle layer of consciousness called the‘sukshma sharira’ which is controlled by the triad of actions, memories and desires. Spirit is like light, which is always positive and only removes darkness. The basic nature of the consciousness is “truth and bliss”. The soul and the spirit are devoid of hatred, anger or jealousy and are full of unconditional love. They are nothing but a treasury of information about everything. This infinite information is capable of doing anything, including miracles. It is like the flame of a candle, which can light an infinite number of candles, while still retaining its illumination to the same degree.

Dr Deepak Chopra once said that the soul is like the voice of Lata Mangeshkar coming out of a radio, and even if you break the radio, you will not find Lata Mangeshkar in it. Similarly, even if you cut the body into pieces, you cannot find the physical presence of the spirit.

Spirit is present all over, be it the universe or the living beings. Any amount of spirit taken out from it will not make any difference to the spirit. In religious terms, the infinite or the vastness is equated and described by the blue color, and that is one reason why most of the gods are represented by the blue color, or are shown in the background of blue sky. This only represents the vastness and infinite character of the consciousness. One of the Gurus explained to his disciple the description of the spirit by the following equation. 1×1=1, 1/1=1 or, in other words everything is one. One can also explain it by the equation that infinity when added, subtracted, multiplied or divided by infinity will result in infinity only.

This infinite potential in our mind is present in between the thoughts and can be experienced by enabling oneself to go in between the thoughts by a process called mediation. One can experience the silent gap between the thoughts either with the use of primordial sound mantra as a vehicle or by way of yoga. People who have learnt meditation and have achieved the ability to go into the silent gaps can accomplish everything in their life using the principles of intention and attention. After any intention is introduced in the silent gap, a new reality can be created.

“That which is born of the flash is a flash; that which is born of the spirit is spirit” (John)
