Om is the sacred sound of creation, preservation and dissolution. The Omkar is the sound of the instant creation—and it is this Omkar technique, which I am going to teach you and initiate you into as the first Omkar Kriya. It’s called the Omkar Kriya Yoga, the first Omkar Kriya Yoga and because it is of such vital importance, because we are all floating in the soup of the vibration of the Omkar. In the Christian world, they call it the great Amen! They say “aaaaaaaaaaaamen.” They say it is Tathasthu or so be it but it’s the sound, I call it the birthing hum of creation. When the Great Deep, the great primordial energy called the mool prakriti or the paraprakriti amba. The primordial energy gives birth to creation. The sound of the birthing of the bilions of stars ande galaxies and nebulae makes the sound of “Ommmmmm…”
In today’s times in the modern ages, they have actually recorded the sound of creation. Many of you, if you go to the computer, you will see that NASA has given a certain sound. How many of you have heard the sound as like an “AAAaaaaa……” Raise your hands (to audience). In the computer you hear the sound, it’s the sound of instant creation. So, I am bringing this before you, because I am not teaching you any faith. I am teaching you yourself, the source from where you originated—the source in which you live and move and have your being—and the source to which you shall return, is the great sound called the OMKAR. In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and God was the word. So even in the ancient texts and scriptures they give you the importance of the sound of Omkar. In the beginning of time there was neither causation in space, nor time. The laws of physics did not hold good, all was the great unfathomable deep.
Disciple: Gurunath, I have heard you mention that Ganesh is the centrifugal force of the universe? The expansion?
Yogiraj: Yes, but that’s half the story. They had asked me in the beginning, what is the symbology of Ganesh and Kartikye? And when I was in the himalayas at Guptkashi, facing the Kedarnath mountains, this is the thing I wrote down, that Ganesh is the…when these two children explode from the womb of their Mother, that is the paraprakriti Amba, that is Ambika, Amba means the great unfathomable deep; when they explode, the outer-going centrifugal force represents Ganesh. It’s the scientific evaluation of what I think it to be. And Kartikye who rounded up the whole creation by going on his peacock, he encircled the whole creation. Ganesh spun around himself and created waves which went outwards. Kartikye went to the outer-most-far limits of the mind and matter of the universe and created a vortex, which brought back the ripples to the center. So Ganesh is the centrifugal force of the creation and Kartikye is the centripetal Force of the creation.
I know it’s not written in the Holy Bible or the Bhagavad Gita or in the Holy Koran, but I am open to criticism, I am open to people learning from me or me learning from them. So I have to put this forward, because it’s high time that we went from voodoo and abracadabra to scientific knowledge as why the Indian yogi is the first scientist of creation 20 , 30 thousands years ago. He created his body as a laboratory, his breath, his rational mind and his intuitive mind as lab assistance and worked upon the laboratory of his own body to discover that behold, there is a divine indweller in it. There is God within me. This is the contribution of India to the world, and “had India nothing to offer to the world,” I am quoting from Gyanavatar Shri Yukteshwar, “Had India nothing to offer to the whole world, Kriya Yoga itself would suffice as a kingly offering.”
This is how valuable Kriya Yoga is. So this is they worked in the lab of their body and discovered that there is God within our own body and then the great Upanishads and the Vedas rang out in their golden voice, with diamond studded words that, “Behold ye man, you are a god! You are divine! You are not a corruptible body, but a divine soul.” And there is the pathway to get to express this divinity, and that pathway is called YOGA, Kriya Yoga is just the lighting path and an aspect of Yoga. The ancient rishis and the Sages of the Fire Mist proclaimed that just like there is tinder in the fire, you rub the tinder and the fire manifests—there is oil in the seed, you squeeze the seed, the oil manifests—there is butter in the milk, you churn the milk, and the butter manifests—so also, there is God in the man, you breathe the man, and God manifests. And this breathing process is called the divine Kriya Yoga, which is very scientific, yet has its rootd in the soils of love, without which the science part of it cannot flower. So, it’s a well-balanced technique of the left and right brain of science, that is rationality, and love.
