Maha Shiv Rathiri

Today is one of the most auspicious days of the year. Today is the day when you can meditate so easily, the mind so easily settles. Today is also the day when you are officially allowed to do night outs infact its mandatory that you dont sleep. Definitely chant Om Namah Shivaya 108 times atleast twice. If you have done the yesplus course then do your kriya you will experience the mind settling down so effortlessly.

Why to chant 108 times, superb scientific answer exists, rather you experience it yourself. Why om namah shivaya chanting again you experience it yourself. 🙂

What does it mean. hmm

Om is the primordial sound of the universe, that cosmic vibration which exists everywhere. [Two scientists found this out in 1970 and won the nobel prize for physics, we knew this 10,000 years ago ]

Namah – In sanskrit opposite of Manah (.i.e the mind). The mind is always searching for happiness outside, the senses continuously fool it.So we take the mind inwards by closing our eyes.[ Just think about it, every time we are enjoying something we experience the enjoyment by closing our eyes. So where is the enjoyment inside or outside. :)]

Shiva – Split it as Shhh and waaa. We can experience a beautiful event such as sun set, flower blossoming, splashing of the waves only when we are silent. For silence we say shhhh. When we are in that tranquil silent space, automatically this feeling of wowness dawns in us and we say “waaa” or “wow”.

So Om Namah Shivaya chanting is simply reminding ourselves again and again that when we take our mind inwards we experience the beauty inside us. 🙂 Today being Maha Shivarathiri day its so much easier to go within ourselves and experience the absolute beauty that we are.

This is scientific decoding of spirituality. I am told that Guruji gave this explanation when he was at “Cape of Good Hope”.

Today my itenary is, ashram at 4 o clock all the way till 2:00, the yesplus gang is going to meditate, sing, dance and again sing dance…. for the entire night. To experience this bliss really check your diet today[ No onions, masalas, garlic, pizzas etc] in fact fasting on fruits would be ideal, do something nice for somebody [ I took long kriya for 14 people right in the morning ]. Definitely chant om namah shivaya.


Wishing you all a happy shiva rathiri. 🙂 🙂
