From Ashrams (Godly centres) at Haridwar and Rishikesh, one learns, realises rather inherits the essential substance of eternal truth.
It is a perennial panacea to every self-sickening question, curious quiz and inquisitive aspiration regarding religion, spirituality and self-realisation.
Mystic God is all-in-dweller, all-seer and All-listener every moment in every breath. For Self-Realisation, the saints emphasise and convince the anxious devotees that our meditative breathing inhales, "O" and exhales "M".
"O" is Invocation and "M" is the ceaseless worship with surrender to the Almighty. The deep are the dive, the sweeter the restlessness to realise the "Realisable" and perceive the "Perceivable".
In short, the awakened Indian saints like the Rev. Swami Satyamitranand jee Giri, founder of Bharat Mata Mandir utter to the devotees in their divinising sermons to the curious devotees as follows:
-If ignorance arises, reaction occurs;
-If reaction arises, consciousness occurs;
-If consciousness arises, mind and matter occur;
-If mind and matter arise, the six senses occur;
-If the six senses arise, contact occurs;
-If the contact arises, craving and aversion occur;
-If craving and aversion arise, the attachment occurs;
-If the attachment arises, the process of becoming occurs;
-If the process of becoming arises, occurs;
-If birth arises, death and decay occur together with sorrow, lamentation, physical and mental suffering and tribulations.
Hence the ceaseless self-awakening deep and every following day deeper and deeper dive to embrace and to be absorbed in "Eternity" is the ultimate mission of human life.
One shall dance a dance of Ecstasy, Divinity in every breath.
