What Will Happen After The Death

download 166

Death is indeed a very difficult thing.  Every one is afraiding of death whether the person is rich or poor, strong or weak, a believer of God or disbeliever of God, whether he be a Hindu priest or a Muslim preacher.  Everyone is helpless in front of the inevitability of death.  No-one knows when the time of death will come and where will the soul be taken after death.  The Yamdoot (angels of death) is the greatest powerful and capable and he takes the soul out of the body whatever be the circumstances of the person.  In short everyone is powerless in front of the Yamdoot (angels of death).

The holy scriptures say that the Lord of the body-the soul, when it leaves a particular body, it takes along with it, the mind, the wisdom, and the ego and it is with these things that it enters into another body in its onward journey.  That soul, using the senses (eyes, nose, tongue, ears and touch) and the mind experiences the world around. (Geeta 15:1)

The Lord further says in the Geeta 15:7 that The soul in the body is but a fragment of his own self and that fragment draws around itself the five senses.  Just as the wind waxes its scent from its source, the individual soul waxing the supreme Lord, takes along at the time of death the five senses and the mind and enters into another body.

The Lord further says that this soul in its endless journey is eternal but it takes many bodies all of whom are transitory and temporary. (Geeta 2:17) This eternal soul is never born nor does it ever die in any of the periods of Kaal.  It is never born, eternal and ancient. It doesn’t die even when the body is killed (Geeta 2:20) Just as a person casts away old cloths to wear new ones similarly the soul casts away one body to take on another body. (Geeta 2:22) This soul is imperishable and weapons cannot cut this soul, fire cannot burn this soul, water cannot wet this soul and the wind cannot dry this soul (Geeta 2:23) but when the soul is leaving the body there is intense agony in the body. This agony is like the agony of being bitten by a 1000 scorpions.

The Garuda Purana page number 552 says when the time of death arrives then some time before that some disease enters into the body.  The senses start to fail and all methods of healing fail.  Consciousness starts receding and the messengers of the lord of death Yama come and stand next to the body and start pulling the Prana of the body by force.  At that time the Prana of the body are pulled up to the throat and the mouth is filled with fluid.  At that time the embodied being of the body laments, looks at its home-the body-in grief and is dragged towards the house of death.

At the time of death, the wind element is activated and merges into the fire element which starts using the body as a fuel and starts destroying the capacity of the body to carry life.  This is extremely painful to the body.  This is relevant to ordinary human beings but those persons who are devoted to the Supreme Lord another kind of wind called Udaan gets activated.  All those who are free of indulgence and desire; who are righteous  and who love only the Lord, their death is peaceful and those who are devotees of Lord Narayan, who constantly focus their attention on the supreme Lord, they donot have experience of death.  The Yamdoot (angels of death)  donot come to take their soul, instead the lord of death Darmraj comes with a garland of flowers and gives them permission to go the abode of Lord Narayan.  The rest are dragged by the Yamdoot across the river Vaitarni through the sixteen bridges.

The Garuda purana page number 567 says the distance of the the house of death from the earth is 86000 Yojna this is equal to 1032000 kms.  The soul is dragged though this long distance like a snake or a trapped monkey.  Those who have done a lot of sins in their lives, experience this journey as very troublesome and painful and are made to suffer various punishments.

That sinner after the 13th day is tied to a post and angry Yamdoot strikes the soul repeatedly and take him towards their abode.  That route is filled with thorns, stones and other difficulties such as fire, mosquitoes, intense heat and the soul crying pitiably as it is pulled by the Yamdoot (angels of death). The soul becomes extremely small and weak due to burning and according to its karmas is eaten, bitten by animals and its body is pierced by various animals.  All this causes immense suffering to the soul.

There are 16 bridges on this way.  They are

  1. Yaamya-In this way the soul cries for his progeny and remembers all the misdeeds that he has done and asks to be saved and reaches a river called Pushpa Bhadra.
  2. Sauripur-This place is ruled by a desire-action oriented king, whose very sight scares the soul. There the soul is struck by the Khadak-the weapon of lord of death and proceeds towards Narendranagar.
  3. Narendranagar-There the soul feeds on the offerings that have been made in his name and goes forward. On the way he is rained with blows by the angels of death and in the third month he reaches gandharva nagar.
  4. Gandharva-nagar- There the being feeds on the offering made In the third month and again proceeds to Shailaagampur and is again beaten by the angels of death on the way.
  5. Shailaagampur-there the being feeds on the fourth month offerings by his family and and is struck by stones on his way forward.
  6. Kraunchpur-The being partakes further offerings here and takes rest and reaches Kroorpur after six months.
  7. Kroorpur-In this place the angels of death strike the soul through weapons and the being falls down in terror and then proceeds onwards to Vichitra nagar
  8. Vichitranagar-the being is struck by weapons called shools or spears and the being proceeds to Bahavaapada pur
  9. Bahavaapada pur-The being partakes in the seventh month offering and is again struck by the angels of death and the being proceeds to Dukhpur.
  10. Dukhpur-The being partakes the eigth month offerings and is again given various punishments by the angels of death and proceeds to(11) Nanakrand namak puri,(12) Sutapta bhavan (13) Raudrapuri (14) Payovarshan (15) Sheetadaya puri and (16) Bahubheeti puri and finally reaches the land of death. There the being is sent to those places good or bad depending on the actions that the being has undertaken in his life.

What the being laments as it has to cross the 16 bridges is that why did he not spend his time on earth in worship of the lord.  Why he did not spend his time meditating on the Lord and other such pursuits that would have brought him closer to the supreme lord.  That is why it is essential to do these kind of works while one is able in this human body.  The human body is the only place that the being can elevate himself in the service of the Lord.  Although the name of the Lord is sung in every age and time of Kaal but in this particular time-Kaliyug, the name itself is very Important and the Lord’s sincere worship opens the door of enlightenment and saves one from suffering.  This is why we all must spend our time and attention in uttering the Lord’s name and always remembering Him.

Why Meditation is Piyush for all ?

images 123

Meditation is the primal duty of man and only meditation is the way to purify one’s being. This is why a person should be oriented towards meditation. The following benefits accrue if one does meditation every day.

  1. The person who meditates regularly upturns the flow of Prana from downwards to upwards. A direct result is that at the time of death there is no pain or agony. It is said that for an ordinary man, the pain at the time of death is like being bitten by a 1000 scorpions.  This is avoided by one who meditates.
  2. All that is valuable in this world and in the next world is available to the one who meditates and he gets it without even asking.
  3. There is no better for the removal of sinful acts than Meditation.
  4. Meditation is that fire that burns the seeds of karmas and helps reduce the causes of rebirth.
  5. Meditation is the best way to cross this world of suffering. It is like a boat on which we can cross the ocean of suffering.
  6. Like the wind helps a fire burn down a house similarly meditation is like the wind that helps action-the fire to burn down sins.
  7. Meditation is like the fire that purifies Gold. Meditation turns the Paraná Vaayu inwards and reduces the effects of causes for the person.
  8. The one who meditates everyday has better benefit that one who does all kinds of donations or one who has done 66000 types of pilgrimages or one who does tap or Yagya or even those acts that are meant as penance. All these methods have no value in front of the process of meditation.
  9. The person who is able to cast away laziness even for an instant and meditate deeply achieves heaven but the one who comes under the aegis of Lord Narayana and meditates with total love and devotion, nothing is better than that.
  10. The study of all scriptures and deep thought reveals that meditation should be done only on Lord Narayana.
  11. The one whose nature leads him to commit sins, his salvation lies only by remembrance and prayers to Lord Narayana.
  12. Thousands of dips in the holy river Ganges and tens of millions of dips in the pilgrimage called Pushkar are nothing in comparison meditation upon Lord Narayana even for a moment, if done sincerely. Therefore there is nothing better than focusing one’s attention on lord Narayana.
  13. In this world there is no other act that is as pious and effective as Meditation.
  14. As animals do not take the shelter of a mountain that is surrounded by fire, similarly sin does not come close to a person who is engaged in Yoga and meditation.
  15. The person who comes to know the complete divine-Poorna Brahma and who takes shelter only in the complete divine and who only focuses on the complete divine while meditating, such a person escapes the cycle of birth and death. Such a person never suffers from any setbacks. Even if all the planets are astrologically against such a person, their ill-effects turn into beneficial effects.  That Complete divine is situated in a place called Agamya-jyoti and it is called Anami look –the unnamed place-as well.  That place is 100 crore yojana ahead of Agam lok or Karya brahma and can only be reached by crossing the energy river and this is  place  is also known as the true Golok Dhaam.  This place is self-illuminated-illuminated neither by the sun or the moon neither fire.  The modes of nature are not operative here and neither there is the effect of Kaal or time.  There is no disease there nor old age and nor even death.  The law of karma does not operate here and only those souls can reach here who have love and devotion in their hearts.

How to sit on Meditation

 

7-chakras chakra 1

Meditation is the demand of Present Era. Thus one must know clearly how to sit on meditation. When you sit on doing practice for meditation you need to have a comfortable seat and a good posture. The most important feature of the posture is to keep your back straight. To help you do this, if you are sitting on a cushion you make sure that the back of the cushion is slightly higher than the front, inclining our pelvis slightly forward. It is not necessary at first to sit cross-legged, but it is a good idea to become accustomed for sitting in the posture of Padmaasan. If you cannot hold this posture you should sit in one which is as close to this as possible while remaining comfortable.

There are seven features of posture which are as below:

(1) The legs are crossed in the vajra posture. This helps to reduce thoughts and feelings of desirous attachment.
(2) The right hand is placed in the left hand, palms upwards, with the tips of the thumbs slightly raised and gently touching. The hands are held about four fingers’ width below the navel. This helps us to develop good concentration. The right hand symbolizes method and the left hand symbolizes wisdom – the two together symbolize the union of method and wisdom. The two thumbs at the level of the navel symbolize the blazing of inner fire.
(3) The back is straight but not tense. This helps us to develop and maintain a clear mind, and it allows the subtle energy winds to flow freely.
(4) The lips and teeth are held as usual, but the tongue touches against the back of the upper teeth. This prevents excessive salivation while also preventing our mouth from becoming too dry.
(5) The head is tipped a little forward with the chin slightly tucked in so that the eyes are cast down. This helps prevent mental excitement.
(6) The eyes are neither wide open nor completely closed, but remain half open and gaze down along the line of the nose. If the eyes are wide open we are likely to develop mental excitement and if they are closed we are likely to develop mental sinking.
(7) The shoulders are level and the elbows are held slightly away from the sides to let air circulate.

A further feature of Dhyan Mudra or posture is the preliminary breathing meditation, which prepares your mind for developing a good motivation. When we sit down to meditate our mind is usually full of disturbing thoughts, and we cannot immediately convert such a state of mind into the virtuous one we need as our motivation. A negative, disturbed state of mind is like pitch-black cloth. We cannot dye pitch-black cloth any other colour unless we first remove all the black dye and make the cloth white again. In the same way, if you want to color your mind with a virtuous motivation you need to clear away all your negative thoughts and distractions. You can accomplish this temporarily by practicing breathing meditation.

Breathing Meditation:

When you have settled down comfortably on your meditation seat you begin by becoming aware of the thoughts and distractions that are arising in your mind. Then you gently turn your attention to your breath, letting its rhythm remain normal. As you breathe out you imagine that you are breathing away all disturbing thoughts and distractions in the form of black smoke that vanishes in space. As you breathe in you imagine that you are breathing in all the blessings and inspiration of the holy beings in the form of white light that enters your body and absorbs into your heart. You maintain this visualization single-pointedly with each inhalation and exhalation for twenty-one rounds, or until our mind has become peaceful and alert. If you concentrate on your breathing in this way, negative thoughts and distractions will temporarily disappear because you cannot concentrate on more than one object at a time. At the conclusion of your breathing meditation you should think `Now I have received the blessings and inspiration of all the holy beings.’ At this stage your mind is like a clean white cloth which you can now colour with a virtuous motivation such as compassion

Imp. Note:-

You can get the complete knowledge of meditation by sitting face to face. You can learn Surat-Shabd yog also to attain the God and at the same time path of meditation also for attaining the God.
