Bhagawan-Death Experience
« on: August 22, 2008, 12:49:56 PM »
Bhagawan enquired into death during the death experience which happened to him and through that enquiry into death the identity with the mind
and the body is annihilated once for all which is called manonasa and got realised there and then.

Do you think all this enquiry has happened in a thoughtless state of self-conscious being or you think that enquiry is done with the thought

Dear Raju,  Bhagavan during death experience, used the
thought :  Who am I?.  After this enquiry, He realised
the Self-consciousness.   When some one asked Bhagavan
"How much time did you take?", Bhagavan replied: "Where
is the question of time?" meaning that the realization was
instantaneous, because He was an avatara, with no carry bag
of 'vasanas'.  For others, it may take any amount of time.  Certain
students of Bosho school of Zen, work out just one 'koan' for a
few hours and had realization!  Others took years.  In Chandogya
Upanishad, you get stories, that someone took three instalments
of 32 years each, totally 96 years, to merge in the Self.  The Guru
had asked him to go and graze the cows on three occasions of 32
years each.  In Katha Upanishad, Nachiketas just took three days
in Yama's abode to get self realization.

Arunachala Siva.
