Our Real Existence

When we were born into this world for the first time, we were Pure because the Source from which we have descended or come down is Purity. The time went on, and in our innumerable births we have gathered around us different types of grossness by our actions.

In this present existence too we are performing actions, and the result is these very actions slowly form layer after layer of grossness around the original Purity, so that in course of time we come to resemble the silk worm that has spun a cocoon around itself. When man reaches this stage of His earthly existence, His life is one of artificiality and full of grossness,both at the level of action and in results. The original Purity has been reduced to a faint glimmer, and that is often scarcely perceptible.  All memory of His original Source or Homeland is now forgotten, and as action follows action the shell around Him gets harder and harder and His memory of the Source gets fainter, until it is almost completely forgotten. 

We have now come to the stage where we become disgusted with the present existence, but yet we have no memory of that pleasant and Pure State which is our Real existence.  This is because we have become accustomed to this existence, whereas the Other has been almost totally forgotten. 

The only way out of this existence is to return to the Source.  To find the way back,by unravelling the strands binding us, may not be possible except with the help of a Guide who has connected Himself to the Source, and who can, therefore, loosen the knots binding us by the Power of His Transmission of the highest consciousness. 

The first and almost immediate effect of the Transmission is to give peace and calmness which can hardly be expressed in words.  This experience in meditation helps to gently remind us of the Source to which we must return, and repeated experience strengthens the Remembrance of  our Original Home,and so loosens the bondage of the present life.  As the Transmission takes us to deeper and deeper levels of Remembrance, our journey to the Source becomes firmly established. 

All of us may be granted this experience to see the light of the day. 

This is the message delivered by Sri Ramchandraji Maharaj, founder of Sahaj Marg, in the year 1970. To know more about Guide, Spirituality, Homeland etc., our readers are requested to see the articles related to Spirituality in this website.

The last stage in human life is Old age. At this stage old people will encounter negligence from others including their families in some worst cases. Not only this, they will develop self negligence. Due to Competitiveness, tension due to pressure of work, spending leisure time on viewing TV, Children's education etc., youth also neglects them.

Tapatraya (3 Cravings) of Humans and the suitable methods to suffice them

Tapatraya in Sanskrit, means 'The 3 Cravings (Anxieties)' of the Human Life. Trying for a thing or for a purpose with undue longing and anxiety is generally called as Tapatraya (Craving). This is the common man’s view. But spiritually this has got a different meaning, a meaning in true sense.

These three kinds of cravings termed as Tapatraya are  - 1. Aadhi Bhouthika (Physical), 2. Aadhi Dyvika (Mental), and 3. Adhyatmika (Spiritual).

The explanation of these three may differ from one school of thought to the other. But let us think according to our view.
