An Evening with Rhea Pillai and Pankaj ji 🙂
Had a lovely Evening with Rhea Pillai and Pankaj Mirgh ji,also an advance course teacher! 🙂
Started with Guru Om Chanting and then Naadi Shodan Pranayam and then Rhea ji in her sweet and serene voice asked us to open our eyes! 🙂
She instructed us to sing along a Bhajan sung by Rashmi ji keeping our eyes closed and then we had a lovely Guru Puja chanting after the Bhajan 🙂
As we glided into the three stage pranayam! 🙂 gracefully! 🙂
Rhea Di then sweetly guided us in the Pranayam Bhastrika and then we had a lovely lovely Sudarshan Kriya! 🙂
We opened our eyes to find ourselves calmer more aware and just wanted to be in this moment smiling 🙂
Well that is Sudarshan Kriya! which made us feel a lot more aware and alive in this very moment! 🙂
Meanwhile Rhea Di left after the Kriya as urgent work called in.!
Pankaj ji then sat with a cute smile and said..oh now you all are in bliss and silence state! 🙂 now i only will have to speak! 😉
But what to speak this is supposedly a Advance Course Follow up but i have not decided anything! You make this follow up happen!
Any questions you want to ask about the Advance Course that you wanted to ask! 🙂
Somebody asked about expectation Sankalpa!
So he said See Vikalpa is also your sanaklpa that this should not happen! So you see how strong it has come out to be! 🙂 Similarly you can have Sankalpa and you see that is much more stronger too! 🙂
Somebody asked!- i feel nice feel grateful to be a part of this environment where such beautiful knowledge is discussed, but when i go back i dont feel so!i feel nice during the 22 minutes! but then things dont seem to work!
Pankaj ji said- 22 minutes! aha! you need to do 30-25 minutes of Kriya! 🙂 See Guruji has designed everything to perfection…20 minutes of Pranayam and Bhastrika and what is to be followed is the last ten minutes..which is the most
He gave an example–Well you see you cook food! right!
Now while cooking food,you first cut the food :)thats the three stage pranayam!
Then you put masala and all and let it cook,thats the Bhastrika part!
Then you chant sweetly Om..thats the time you put in the cut vegetables!
Then after that you have no idea what happens with the vegetable!But you have this faith that food is going to get cooked! 🙂 That is Kriya.. 🙂 Things happen..and you do not know whats happening! 😉
After cooking when foods ready you get the pleasant smell! 🙂 But simply cooking is waste for you! 🙂 You need to taste too 🙂
that rest of 10 minutes is compared to experiencing the fruit of those 20 minutes! 🙂
So do not compromise on those ten minutes…those are important! 🙂
Do kriya the way it is taught..well you do short cut..and expect a long cut answer 😉
He said all of us have impression on our lives,such as some have allergies some have fear and all!
This is a process where all these impression from past lives come up and leave you and make you free! 🙂
Regression and past life!
Regression is where you are made to see the past and express the unexpressed emotions in the past!But doesnt that strengthen the impression more!
Past life is where you get to get a glimpse of the past life of yours thats it!
But our course is Eternity..where you see the past on a subtle level and the impression is gently removed! 🙂
Somebody said Pankaj ji you are so lucky to be with HIM in such close proximity! 🙂
He said Guruji said to them that..No you are not lucky! You know when there is a packed Satsang in a village and a person passing by just gets a glimpse of
it! then he is lucky!
You guys are handpicked! 😉
Tell us something about Advance Course! 🙂 Imagine a archer,when you do a Basic course, imagine yourself to be a bow which is handpicked by the archer! 🙂
The Advance course makes you lighter and then you are put on the bow! 🙂
If the archer finds you to be not light, hollow and empty, he chooses another,that way you need to do more advance courses! 🙂
You do Sahaj so you dive into the depth of yourself.When you are lighter and have the depth, the archer puts you on the bow and stretches the depth in you by pulling backwards! and then aims straight!
DSN gives you that direction how to move about when you have that stillness and that depth in life! 🙂
So you aim straight! 🙂
So all four are essential to do Seva with a warrior attitude! 🙂
See if a person has done Basic Course and DSN he is all charged up but does not have the depth and stillness! so struggles to make things happen! He is like a bow released but not knowing where to move! 🙂
Who is busy is not easy and who is easy is not busy! 😉
Be… 100 percent!
all of u have given your 100 percent…well say truly have you achieved success always!
Answer : No!
Thats what Guruji said..Guruji never said do 100 percent for something!HE said just Be…100 percent!
Just be what you are hundred percent..
Then things might happen or might not…that is supposed to be! 🙂
So just be…100 percent!Well Guruji says every word with a meaning! 🙂
Relax everything is just perfect in life…enjoy the depth and beauty of life!
When you ask questions its like poking the nature and saying that this is not perfect! 🙂
Know everything is just perfect the way it is meant to be! 🙂
When you ask its like poking the nature! 😉
I get a lot of connected thoughts..while practising Sahaj..its been a pretty long time now..in Ashram it was not so that much! 🙂 but still i let it be and
continue doing the practises! 😀
Hmmmm…Well Good you are doing perfect..continue practising! 🙂
Watch your diet..drink lots of water and add fruits in your diet! 🙂
Well if you eat more of tamsik rajsic food then it will be difficult to meditate! so watch over it! 🙂
Watch your lifestyle too!
Ayurveda says three things!
Sleep on timeEat on time Have Bowels on time!
If anything disfunctions on timings, make efforts to bring thing back on their normal course!
Q : in a city with job how do i do it?A : Well lets not be rigid.. in a city when you reach home eat light food…let it digest and then sleep!
it is said give two hours minimum to let the food digest and then only rest! 🙂
Have you seen the Ashram schedule of food..thats the ideal one! 🙂 Well if you cannot follow that then be flexible and stick to the two hour thing!
Heavy food may require three and wedding food four hours to digest in 😉
Q : I do kriya satsang and do some time seva but want to do more seva ..and thing is i simply cannot take out time since have more responsibility!
A : Can you do one seva..drop this idea of wanting to do more seva..
Person: But i want to do seva and want to become teacher too…but simply cannot take out 21 days time!
Pankaj ji: My dear if you cannot take out 21 days time how will you take out 7 days time thereafter for courses! How will you have time to do that! Being a teacher is a committment and are you ready to take that..if no then drop this idea!
Have you seen a swan..it moves through gracefully through the muddy water and does not let the water know also that it is moving and if you observe the
water just around the swan is clear 🙂
Be ready to move like that gracefully! 🙂
Its all in the mind..you can do things..but only if you wish too 🙂
Then he revised the Mudra Pranayams and Bandhas and we had a short Satsang when Pankaj ji came down with everyone and danced with us 🙂
We did a short meditation and then blissfully with all smiles we left back home!
Feeling a sense of gratefulness and beauty in our hearts of the wonderful knowledge that Guruji provides us at the right time! 😀
Love and Blessings! 🙂
