General Discussion / The Shoa
« on: December 07, 2016, 05:14:44 PM »
We know that for Bhagavan there was nobody born, nobody dies, nobody ever killed anybody.
But for me the world is real, people are real, events are real.
When Bhagavan resided at Arunachala, the world suffered from World War II - especially the Jews underwent terrible sufferings.
Even if for Bhagavan nothing ever happened, I cannot help but wanting to know if He ever said something about the Shoa.
Does anybody know?

'I is the best mantra, even OM is secondary to that.'
I think it's in Talks, but I'm not sure where...

Hi Dear All,

Some time ago I found on web some pictures of Arunachala in the different Yugas.
Try as I might, I cannot find those pictures anymore.
Can someone help?

Love,
Jyoti

I try to buy some books via http://bookstore.arunachala.org/, but I never manage to continue to step 2.
Do they not deliver to Austria (Europe)?

General Discussion / Re: Siddhis

Is it true that Ganapati Muni once cursed city Nasik whereupon it was destroyed?
I read about this here:
Quote
What he did have was extraordinary mental abilities that enabled him to manifest powers in the area of supernormal perceptual states known as Siddhis. So great was abilities it has been reported he could bring down or stop the rains. He could destroy a whole town. Once when he was harassed during his stay in the city of Nasik he cursed that the whole city should be destroyed. Soon the whole city was destroyed through the dreaded disease of plague.

General Discussion / Siddhis

What exactly are Siddhis, how to People get them and is it true that having them is a hindrance to spiritual progress?
Is it true that Ganapati Muni had Siddhis and used them?

Found it :

Quote
Her body is fair like the campa flower;
His body is like camphor.
She has elaborately braided hair decked with pearls;
And he has matted hair.

I bow to Shivah and I bow to Shiva.


Her body is sprinkled with musk-vermillion powder;
His body is smeared with funeral pyre ash.
She has the power of sexual desire;
And He is adverse to it.

I bow to Shivah and I bow to Shiva.


From Her you hear the movement of tinkling anklets and bracelets,
His lotus feet have glistening anklets of snakes.
She is adorned with golden armlets,
And He has armlets of snakes.

I bow to Shivah and I bow to Shiva.


Her eyes are like large blue lotuses,
His eyes are like the red lotus.
Her eyes are even,
His eyes are uneven.

I bow to Shivah and I bow to Shiva.


She is wearing a garland of mandar flowers in Her hair,
He is wearing a garland of skulls around His neck.
She is wearing silks of divine quality;
And He is clad only by the sky.

I bow to Shivah and I bow to Shiva.


Her hair is dark like the monsoon clouds;
His matted locks flash with the luster of lightning.
She is Lord of All;
He is Lord of All.

I bow to Shivah and I bow to Shiva.


Hers is the dance that creates differentiation;
His is the dance that destroys everything.
I bow to the Mother of the Universe.
I bow to the Father of the Universe.

I bow to Shivah and I bow to Shiva.


Her earrings sparkle with radiant, precious stones;
His earrings are hissing snakes.
He embraces Her;
And She embraces Him.

I bow to Shivah and I bow to Shiva.

On Bagalamukhi:

Is it true that she is called Brahma-astra-rupini because she can put mind to silence?
Ganapati Muni sometimes asked Bhagavan questions but always first requested that He should not use His Brahma-astra.
Can someone shed some light on this?

Is it possible to become one with Saguna Brahma (Ishvara)?
How are such people called, are those Siddhas?

We are one with Saguna Brahman as the Self. But we can never become like Saguna Brahman in the relative sense. We can never fully know or control everything. We can do and know only that which Ishvara allows us. Siddhas are people with extraordinary powers and kowledge of the world but as much as the Ishvara has allowed them. This is the opinion of the great acharyas. Swami Vivekananda has talked particularly about that.
Do you perhaps know were I could read what the Swami said?

I think because Jnani is not God in the relative sense of the world. Jnani and God are one only in Jnanam.
But God is the absolute, right?
And Jnani is one with the absolute i.e. one with God.
Therefore Jnani should be what ever God is.

General topics / Jnani is not omniscient?
« on: October 01, 2013, 02:53:36 AM »
From here:

Quote
Saradamma: Some people think that jnanis are omniscient, that they have access to all the information in the world. The jnani doesn’t have all this information, or need it. If someone came up to me and said that Hyderabad is the capital of India, I might believe him if I didn’t already know that it is Delhi.

God (Ishvara) is omniscient, right?
Than why is Jnani, not?
Should he/she who is one with God not be like God?
