Q: What is the role of Kriya Yoga in modern times? And in future times in the world.?
Gurunath: Kriya Yoga is the foundation of Raja Yoga. It is mentioned in the Sutrani Sutras of Pantajali. It is clearly mentioned: Tapa, Swadhyaya, Ishwar Pranidhan. I will detail this for you later. But, the role of Kriya Yoga in contemporary society and future society is to build a peaceful and steady humanity which can live in peaceful coexistence with one another. Russia, China, America, India, France, London, Europe, all these countries can live in harmony by the practice of Kriya Yoga. So Kriya Yoga give you that peace and harmony whereby you can have empathy with one another. Whereby you can understand your fellow brethrens, and give them time. What is your point of view, what is my point of reference? How can we coordinate to have a win-win situation, you win and I win also. So this is one of the basic practical, the real effects of Kriya Yoga.
Guidance for the use of Mantra
Q: Gurunath, why is the pronunciation so important in the use of Mantras and what would you say to Westerners that are using Mantras in their spiritual practices?
Gurunath: I would encourage Westerners; I would encourage all the people from Italy, France, Germany, London, America, Russia, and China, to use Mantras in their spiritual practices. But, they must learn to pronounce every single syllable of the Mantra with perfection. Because the mantra is a formula of sound patterns and if mess up on the pronunciation on the phonetics, and the acoustics of the sound pattern you are in soup. Therefore, it is a science because thoughts are things and words are things. And intone the mantra properly, as it is meant to be intoned.
Man’s Essential Nature is Spirit
Gurunath: But it is not our fault if the darkness cannot the light. And the light shinneth in the darkness and the darkness comprehended it not. This is the Lightless light, that lights that light, which lights the light of our all souls. Its frequency is so much that the whole area is lit up as I see it. The whole area is lit up. One Master comes, the whole town gets lit up. But that frequency is so high. But when I am sitting, like I was sitting in the evening, how many of you could see the aura around the body? Just say ‘AYE’ Where I was sitting at in the hall in the night. There you are, the light is there. Even when the light shines, the light of the soul is shining there.
Q: So Gurunath, what is it when your body breaks up, the light breaks up?
Gurunath: That shows that mans essential nature is spirit. He has to be striped of his physical, emotional, and mental bodies and stand naked before the Lord God and merge into the Lord God, who is the ultimate nakedness: the naked singularity, beyond all singularities. You have to go stripped and bare. Stripped and bare. For the nature of man is spirit and the practice of Yoga is stripping you of all your false notions, all your physical, emotional, and mental bodies and especially all your siddhis. Choose! You have God on one side and you have Siddhis on the other.
Babaji is the Peace that Passeth All
Gurunath: Babaji is the peace that passeth all understanding. And try as we may, we must be at a total loss and fail to describe him in his fullest glory. Who art thou I know Thee not and yet I am of Thee. I cannot comprehend the Lord, thou Emperor of Divinity. I sit and melt in the silence of thy love oh infinite. Make me thy truth, make me thy love, eternal Lord of Light. I’m burning in my love thee Eternal Infinite, I cannot rest in peace now till I do become thy Light.
