2-krishna-rajesh-babu-ponnayyan

This episode includes two twelve minute chants, the audios of which are available below: the first is the original Sanskrit version; the second is an English rendering prepared by me using the original translations. The show notes offer an explanation of the value of those chants and how they connect with the work of this podcast and website.

The Lord Krishna and Maha-Vishnu Exultation Page is directed toward opening the deeper regions of one’s heart and connecting one with Krishna on all planes of existence, all of which intersect the earth. The greatest value of incarnating as a human being is that all dimensions of existence, personal and cosmic, intersect with human consciousness. Human incarnation is the most cherished form of existence within the universe for that reason. A human being fully flowered is the creation for which all the universe awaits. Krishna is lord of all dimensions of existence, within, outward, and beyond, where there are no names or forms. To know Lord Krishna is to invite in unfathomable knowledge, bliss, and divine consciousness. All passageways into the beyond come through Lord Krishna.

On this page, you will have access to all the Krishna material on The Invisible Room for Exploring the Unknown website. These include two particular audios of the podcast: “Ep 45 Krishna’s Flute and Love’s Stand as it Disappears into the Infinite” and “Ep 65 A Conversation with Lord Krishna.” Other materials include bibliographical listings of books about Lord Krishna, and texts of chants which I have recorded for this episode.

The material recorded for this episode is taken from the Sri Brahma-Samhita, translated into English and commented upon by His Divine Grace Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Gosvami Thakura. This text is profound and very advanced. It would take lifetimes of engagement just to open some of the doors that resonate in this text. I have adapted a few stanzas for my personal work, some of which I am sharing with listeners of this podcast. The English translation of these verses is mine based upon the translated material provided by His Divine Grace. I have used this English wording in order to provide a greater connection with the language of this podcast and to make possible a more rhythmic measure for accessing the Krishna viewpoints imbedded in the material. In my renderings, nothing has been lost.

The audios using the Sri Brahma-Samhita material are useful for cracking, indeed smashing, through the indoctrinated mind, for spreading one’s consciousness into other planes of existence, and for attracting cosmic beings to assist in advancing one’s spiritual evolution. Fully engaging this material is not for the faint of heart. Only the committed will make progress in pushing aside the intense resistance to the passage of this energy from the absolute spirit into one’s consciousness. This resistance is part of one’s experience of these verses. Feel it; resistance is both important and necessary. For fullest effects, these verses would be chanted along with the recording and eventually chanted without the recording, when the divine energy will have become fully established within one’s psyche. Imagine it! Simply chanting along with the text would provide a powerful, ecstatic cry to the universe that you are available for greater spiritual advancement. Not that one should underestimate the value of just listening!

The background music is A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabupada chanting the Sri Brahma-Samhita.

Each verse of these chants takes a particular viewpoint of knowing Lord Krishna. Establishing the vibrations of each of these viewpoints within one’s consciousness would make possible the opening of many thousands more viewpoints for many lifetimes beyond this one. A Krishna lifetime is a particular existence with a particular matrix of ecstatic self-knowing as a life core for individual living. The revelation of the statements made here comes only with chanting, not thinking or studying. Thus is Lord Krishna.

Chant Two: The English version (12 min)

Krishna is Lord Supreme.

There is nothing beyond Lord Krishna.

Mental or material, in this world or another,

He is consciousness-bliss-absolute.

He is the uncreated source of all things,

Infinite, unbounded, the cause of all causes.

Through Krishna, all things are put into motion,

Sustained, and destroyed.

Thus is Lord Krishna. (1)

 

In his transcendental state,

Lord Krishna exists within himself as pure ecstasy,

Absolute bliss supreme.

Krishna unto Himself is all transcendental knowing,

No consciousness, no mind, no source of anything.

Within the infinite planes of existence,

There are no created realms within his notice.

Thus is Lord Krishna! (6)

 

Krishna, the divine source of all things,

Is in fact Maha-Vishnu,

Who enters into each of His creations as Himself,

As thousand-headed upon thousand-headed Vishnu,

Each head the Supersoul of its universe.

Each universe unto itself is Vishnu;

All of it is Maha-Vishnu,

Maha-Vishnu eternal.

Thus is Lord Krishna! (14)

Even when we have managed to look up from our life stories and acknowledged the divine, have responded to the call from deep within to move forward in alignment with the divine will, there are the day-to-day movements within the karmic flux that are forever threatening to shunt us off into wayward paths of self-gratification and heroic charges into the saga of the collective consciousness as it lumbers along oblivious of what you know and what you are trying to keep alive in your psyche. How to keep that conversation with God in the foreground of your inner landscape? Sacred texts are always about something, but they are also the signal to the great beyond that you are ready to receive wider channels of the divine presence. This Conversation with Krishna wreaks havoc with the thinking mind, which is given an opportunity to bow down. When we finally bow down for keeps, the Lord is fully present in all that we do.

“A man exists on his own but for the abiding intent of the unknown at his back.”

— John Lentz

If we only knew what the important choices were: school or work; him or her; this job or that one; artificial intelligence or divine intelligence? This last one is not so obvious because for the most part the idea of turning over your life to divine intelligence doesn’t carry far in the mass consciousness, which includes the major religious institutions of the world. What you know about God comes directly from God, and you have a choice now, as I see it, for not only yourself but for the whole human race. And that question is this: would you rather turn the human race over to the divine intelligence or to bio/artificial intelligence and the cyborg humanity of an unenlightened future planting a flag on Mars? Where does a cyborg humanity fit into the cosmic order? How we choose to live our current lives and our lives to come, especially in how deeply we make ourselves available to love, makes a difference. Now while you are in human existence, wake up and look around. These choices are real.

It is impossible to write coherently on Osho. The mind becomes confounded when approaching him. The only truth one can render upon him is that all of what is said about him, either by sannyasins or by detractors, is a lie. Nothing said can touch what Osho is, and yet words flow forth from all who seriously look into his eyes and look into his words and look into his activities. Many, many useless words, and yet the appeal to his mystery is like diving into the flame of love, knowing that death is the only outcome. They have come by the millions and died for their love of him. Can anyone possibly understand that? If he is a fraud, then the whole universe is a fraud and there is no God.

Or understand the efforts of his devotee lieutenants to take over a portion of Oregon in the 1980s to set up a community for sannyasins to engage in their ecstasy-generating meditations and live together as an advanced human civilization. Watch the Netflix six-hour film Wild Wild Country. Get engaged on both sides! Shake your fist! Wring all the judgments out of your mind; then go onto the website and see the legacy Osho has left behind. And yes, I believe the American government poisoned him. Such a man and the reality he represents, especially at this time in the history of humanity, presents a greater danger than terrorist bombings. Jesus was murdered for the same reason; Mohammed took up arms in his time in order not to be murdered. These men questioned the reality of their worlds, not just the politics. What has changed in thousands of years of human madness and its search for answers? Someone had the balls to say the truth! Look around at all the institutions that control our thinking and our activities. There is no such thing as political freedom. Don’t be fooled. Osho spent his life saying the things that get people killed if those words take on great influence, as Osho’s words did.

Now that he is dead, he is a safe undertaking. No one will follow you into dark alleys. If you end up looking over your shoulders, it will be to see your family and friends inside the barriers they hide behind rather than face the unbounded ocean of being. His legacy is massive. All that he has left behind is alive and well and massively transforming. Osho was a speaker. He spoke eternity. He spoke eternity for thousands of hours. Those talks have been turned into printed books, audiobooks, and videos. Go to the home website. Sign up for newsletters. Become a member. Listen to talks. Acquire and use the Osho Zen Tarot and the Osho Transformation Tarot. Get the physical decks or get the phone apps and use them. Practice the dynamic meditations. Get the music. Dance in the light. Get to know your ecstatic self. Learn their truths. Go on the many websites devoted to him. Feel the praise and the rage. Go on Amazon for print books and audiobooks. Best books to get: The Book of Secrets and Tantra; best audiobook: The Path of Love. My best recommendation is to listen to audiobooks. His English is accented but clear and understandable. He was a college professor before he cut loose from that scene, so he is very educated. He knows a thing or two about saints and sages, ancient and contemporary, history and contemporary politics; he knows scriptures from all religions. He doesn’t hold anything back.

And then when you are done with all of that, get over to Pune, India, southeast of Mumbai, and throw yourself into the fire. Want quick radical change? Go there.

Osho is not safe. He requires of his sannyasins that they give up absolutely everything they believe in, all in the name of undefined existence. Pure existence itself bursts out of his eyes. Nothing he does or says can be contained by the totality of his being. How deeply etched into your consciousness are the boundaries of your life? He will crush them. There is no sober way to approach Osho.

YouTube videos are now overflowing with commercials, so I will leave you with two links:

Everything on The Invisible Room Search for Enlightenment Podcast and on the website is designed to do two things: first, to infuse in listeners and readers the certitude that God is real; and second, to open doors so that one might experience dramatic shifts in point of view from the human experience to the point of view of God, the divine self, the absolute, your invisible room. Both of these transformations are possible. Divine intent, of course, determines everything.

I have made two uses of the Fire of Life Oracle on this site. I use them on “The Sweet Voice of Prayer” audio for the purpose of making deep openings in the heart so that the listener’s voice of prayer might arise. Embracing these deep currents of the heart will bring one closer to the original fire of love, the silent mystery behind the veil that cannot be lifted. Standing before that veil, one simply knows; one simply bows down. Listening to  04 Flame of Love Initiation will go a long way to opening up one’s psyche to these levels of love divine.

The second use I make of these prayers is an oracle, a strategy for making a deep plunge into the ocean of being and adopting the viewpoint of the divine itself as it seeks to merge with its human lover. The lyrical expressions are the voices of human longing as it feels the divine presence. The commentaries take you right into the infinite. They are the voice of the divine without any expected qualifications of what that voice or being might be. There is deep understanding in the commentaries, but the viewpoint itself is nothingness, the divine, the unformed spirit. Ultimately it is you.

Instructions for its use as an oracle and demonstrations of how they sound when read are given on the audio for this episode.

The Sweet Voice of Prayer

The Invisible Room Self-Awakening Process

The Invisible Room, your divine Self, is infinitely deep. You and I exist on an infinitesimal wave of its knowing, learning to locate and accept that infinity when it decides that it is time for us to know, one person at a time, through the eons, and hopefully one day the race as a whole. It’s not an easy acknowledgement to make when we have been programmed to see the world through the darkened lens of the rational mind. But here we are.

These four audios were created for deep penetration outside the veils that shelter us from infinity. Our desire to know arises directly out of infinity, and if you want to travel into the deep mystery right off, these instruments will point you in directions you never heard of.

The images and words here exist primarily to delight the soul. There are personal stories, pictures of great beings who have given themselves to humanity for its uplifting, and even the final couple of minutes of a unique 1950s Sci-Fi movie, words that will stay with you if you enter into its consciousness. A good time will be had by all.
