Sri USaiyer Sir,The great seers transcend all philosophy and psychology and
directly plunge into spirituality or human contact with divine space. Is it not?
Leaving aside the the sadhus with ulterior motives or who
want to have a easy way of living, the other cases like Valmiki
who wrote Ramayana seem to have gone thru all three stages.
Except for the women folks, for most of whom the life values are a mix of mundane with divine ,psychologically they find it ok to rationalize their life experiences in terms of the divine space .They also cultivate prayers temple visits and other rituals in tune with their divine belief systems. Their ego levels
are kept in control,
such is not the case with Men in general who may be atheists or have belief systems that are different from the above and only in the fag end of their life they realise the value of divine space and spiritual content of life!
Sri USaiyer Sir,
Lord Krishna says that only a tiny portion of the population seeks the ultimate Truth. Why so?
Getting tired of Samsara is not easy. It takes innumerable births as humans to come to this stage. And, even if one comes to this stage, one needs the grace of the Brahman to open the doors to this knowledge.
Just my take. Sri Iyest Sir may have a better response. Thanks.
Sri usaiyer Sir,50 or 60years back, life was one of struggle and may be we did not have too many wants ,lived a simple life and socially a happy life too. Villages were flourishing. less urbanization .a caring govt .and less or limited education, To day what with
globalization, explosion of all types of education ,consumerism. The philosophy life have changed. Self interest and personal comforts have overtaken and the psychology
of the people also have changed leading to material pursuits.
and easy life and enjoyment.
But laws of nature being what they are, the social fabric
of breaking up of families, unconstrained life style ,easy virtues
are likely to lead to more problems individually and socially.
The next change will be to find a solution from within the
individual and spiritual awakening process will start.
Kalki Avatar may be in offing.
Seems like the mind without a form is like a sea without waves and the mind with a form is like a sea with waves.Question: What is a mind, which has a form and a mind without form?
Bhagavan: Pure mind is a space of emptiness. Immediately on waking from sleep, a clear awareness arises, without exception in all people. That is formless mind. Thoughts such as "I am the body," "This is the world," arise only after that, which is the mind with form. In a cinema show the light appears first, and the forms appear on the screen only after the light. Likewise, the light of the Self comes first and provides space for everything that follows.
Taken from the book Bhagavan Ramana answers 100 questions.
When we get up especially at 4am for the first 20 minutes the brain is in alpha mode thought waves..its practically as still as a sea without waves and its laps up any info fed to it..like a blank memory card on which information can be stored..hence its called Brahmamuhurtam in Hinduism and the last 1/3 of the night when God descends in Islam.KRS ji,
what happens to the mind when asleep?
As I understand ,Self alone exists in deep sleep and as it is a state of pure bliss.
the mind is devoid of thoughts and fully controlled. Hence it merges with self.
But a mind disturbed and entertaining worries or actively in thinking state with out your being aware of it can lead to
disturbances in sleep
Dream state may occur and when he wakes up ,will he still be
in a formless mind?
How these states are different from wakeful state?
What is Bagahvan's explanation for them?
