  4. 4. Divine Blessings Enable Us to Attain the Highest! People often ask me, "What techniques can you teach me to obtain enlightenment?" I can only smile to myself at the folly of the human race. There is no technique which will produce enlightenment. That high state of "Oneness", of Samadhi, of Cosmic Consciousness occurs as the fruit of previous labour, as a reward for virtuous and honest and truthful living, as a prize of self-scrutiny and self-study, as the flower of Tapasya. But there are many practices which we can do to purify and strengthen our bodies, minds and heart, so as to make us an Adhikarin, or one fit for the higher life. This is where the sincere Abhyasa of Yoga Asanas, Pranayama and Jnana Yoga and Raja Yoga kriyas is important. Not that they in themselves will produce "enlightenment". This is the subtle distinction that most people miss. If one undertakes an active Yoga Sadhana, according to the Rishiculture system, with a sincere love and profound interest in the various techniques, with enjoyment and zest, then the Sadhana is performed for its own sake and not for the hope of a reward . however elevated that reward may be, such as the desire for Samadhi or Cosmic Consciousness. If the Divine so "wills" it, heightened states of consciousness may occur as naturally as a flower blooming on its vine. If the Divine does not will it, one simply enjoys the Sadhana for its own sake. This is a most necessary attitude to keep one's Abhyasa fresh and innocent and joyous. Otherwise, one simply becomes, after twenty years, disillusioned and disappointed, thinking: "In spite of all this work, what did I get after all?" Those kind of thoughts have no place in a Rishiculture Sadhana which is a wholistic Yoga life lived for the sake of living well, and notforthe sake of any reward spiritual or material. There is no quid pro quo in Yoga living there is no this for that. There is only "THIS" and "THAT" .... Om Tat Sat. .... and That is Truth. When weare ready, the illumination will come on its own accord, on its own will. At the proper moment, the cucumber ripens on its vine. With our sincere Sadhana, we cultivate the ground, plant the seeds, and tend the plants. Butthefruition of ita II yea, that fruition is in the hands of the Divine. - Yogamaharishi Dr. Swami Gitananda Giri Guru Maharaj YOGNAT25
  5. 5. Yogamaharishi Dr Swami Gitananda Giri Guru Maharaj, Founder, Yoganjali Natyalayam & Ananda Ashram @ leYER. tV' WHAT IS AN ASHRAM ? Not since ancient times, has India experienced an explosion of spiritual centers as at present time. Yoga Kendras, Yoga Alayams, Nilayams, Yoga Salas and Ashrams are springing up on all sides. Not only in India, but in many outside countries as well, Ashrams are being opened along with spiritual and non spiritual communes, all supposedly dedicated to the "New Age" conciseness developing everywhere. Many of the centers do not actually qualify as an Ashram in the strictest sense, and are only buildings housing groups of people loosely drawn together, and supported by some personal or group drive. In ancient India an Ashram was a hermitage, the home or abode of a Muni, a Sage, a Yogi, or an eminent Rishi, and always the abode of a spiritual or religious Guru who had drawn around him students to be trained in spiritual disciplines of Yoga, Vedanta or the ancient holy sciences of Vedas. Loosely, the term "Ashram" means the dwelling place of ascetics, a place where practice ofTapas, austerity and penance, is observed. Yogis, Samkhyists, Vedantists and Tantrics who notably established spiritual Ashrams were referred to as the "Ashramaguru" or " Ashramacharya. " The Ashram was usually in a remote area set in sylvan surroundings, usually near water. A pond, a lake, a stream, a river, or a site near ocean side was usually selected. Mountain retreats were established near acknowledged holy places. Some Ashrams were on the plains while others were on the sea side. These spiritual retreats were always the centers of spirited discussions on religious, philosophical, metaphysical and para-physical matters. There was always a time set aside
  6. 6. for meeting with the Guru, the Guru Darshana, while Satsangha was the public group meeting where students and visitors could enjoy the wisdom of the sage in residence! A Yoga Ashram could also be known as a Rishi Gurukula, a Munivasa, Dharmmashaala, ~'::!'I~~til.Punyaaalayan, or a math. A Math or Monastery (Mutt) is also called a Madam or Madalayam in South India. Some sort of Sadhana or "Truth Seeking" was to be done '-IIL. ........_ .... Yogaabhyasa, Yoga discipline and practice was the usual prerequisite for those who entered an Ashram. Some Ashrams were study centers, others, contemplative and meditative retreats. Even in India today there are some outstanding Yoga and Vedanta Ashrams. Many groups have taken to calling their centre of activity anAshram, butdo not deserve that rightto use such a title. An Ashram should never be deeply immersed in worldly commerce or preoccupied with business interests alone. Because of the degeneration of Ashrams, real spiritual teachings have failed in what should be centers of spirituality. There is little left in the teaching but those things which lead to Swapna Kriya and Bhojana Kriya, sleeping and eating. An Ashram should never be a place where people indulge in worldly habits. Some modern Ashram institutions proudly allow any sort of diet, cigarette smoking, alcohol and the use of drugs. In many centers Yoga is little more than worshipping at an empty tomb or reading the musty books of some long dead Yogi. Such a place is better known by the name "Ashraya" meaning refuge, a shelter, and an asylum, a resort or a place for common association. The Sanskrit word offers us a play on the word "Ashraya", which also means a "fallacy". Such places corrupt everything with which they come into contact, leading to degeneration of religious and spiritual life and production of Ashrambhrashtha, or spiritual apostates. The sincere member of spiritual community is called an Ashramika, or Ashramin, --"""""""=-----=----' and sees to it that the Ashram is a place where "a state of consciousness prevail exuding evolution" as well as a place where the highest spiritual teachings are made available for sincere seekers. In this sense the word "Ashram" has its truest meaning as a spiritual state of mind". YOGNAT25
  7. 7. There is another meaning given to the word "Ashram", where it suggests- the four stages of phases of life. The first stage, Brahmacharaya, is when learning to cultivate skills predominates and one prepares for responsibilities of an adult, mature life, literally student hood. The Grihasthya Ashram is the second stage of life, that of householder and the family man. Responsibility to ones mate and the children raised predominates, and one tries to be a responsible and good citizen. The third stage Vaanaprastha is retirement from the family, business and worldly activity. More attention is then given to Inner Life development and ones intrinsic nature. Sanyaasa is the renunciation of ego desires the worldly ambitions, this comes usually through the development of Higher Knowledge or wisdom which has grown out of direct experience of life in the previous three states of Ashrams. In ancient times in India, each of the first three periods was to last approximately twenty-one years, although Sanyaasa could be taken at any time without entering into the Grihasthya or Grihastha state. In modern Yantra, the period of time for each of the four Ashrams has been extended to some twenty seven years of life in each phase. Each one is literally, then living in, their own "Ashram". The body is described as the "temple of living spirit" or an "Ashram in which Yoga Sadhana or Yoga Abhyasa can be done". This is the best meaning of Ashram" In ancient India a spiritual aspirant sought out either a religious teacher or a Swamiji The teacher was often a highly qualified Pandit one who was versed in the ancient "Wisdom Lore" of Vedas. Sometimes a spiritual aspirant would seek out a yogi or one qualified by direct experience in the inner aspects of "Spiritual Evolution". He may meet a wandering mendicant orfind a teacher in temporary residence at a famous shrine, temple, or other holy place, but more often, the seeker would go to home of Rishi, to the place where the teacher imparted instruction. This was called a "Gurukula" which literally means the "Wombofthe Guru". As a child is matured in its mother's womb and made ready for the world, so also the spiritual "babe" is nurtured in the "Womb of the Guru" and made ready for life in world. It is often quoted that the Guru is " Mother, Father, God". Students who seek life long YOGNAT25
  8. 8. relationship with a realized teacher must begin as "spiritual babes" for many life times until they evolve through the teachings, the love and grace of Guru. In the beginning, we are only Shishyas, or students and the teacher, the Shishyaka. With sincere development, the teacher may accept as a Chela, a bonafide disciple. On realization, the student is one with his Guru. He himself becomes a Guru! Gurus ali! While I was planning the establishment of Ananda Ashram, Pondicherry, I was cautioned by the editor of a well known English newspaper about the problems I would place. He asked, "Why are you building another Ashram in India?" Without waiting for an answer, he told me, "We've already been "taken in" by so many spiritual institutions, including the big Ashrams. We have been smothered for years and many have actually suffered because of the presence of an Ashram in their territory." I assured him that I no aims to build a commercial centre and was not interested in promoting division and separation from the community by passing oneself as an "elite, chosen group of people". Rather, I wanted to establish a model of the ancient Yogarishi Gurukula, where India's greatest heritage would be taught. Yoga is a simple philosophy of Oneness. Division and separation cannot exist in oneness, harmful habits of tobacco, alcohol, drugs, and animal diet must be eradicated for a healthy community, and higher moral and ethical standards of conduct inculcated. Manywill want their habits and their lower state of life, but they should stay in the world and work out their Karmic lessons. Otherwise, the Ashram "psyche" is lowered. When they are ready for those "Higher Life" instructions, an Ashram likeAnandaAshram should be there to impart it. ..... I sincerely feel that we have filled that vacuum in our local area, in Yoga, Vedanta and Saiva Siddhanta. YOGNAT25
  9. 9. THE LONG, LONG DREAM FIITY YEARSOF ANANDAASHRAM IN PONDICHERRY Ammaji Kalaimamani Yogacharini Meenakshi Devi Bhavanani, Director, Yoganjali Natyalayam & Ananda Ashram @ leYER. The Vedic seers described the life process as a "long, long dream." Looking back on the pastfifty years of existence ofAnandaAshram in Pondicherry, India, Iam inclined to agree! A long dream, a pleasant dream, punctuated with tens of thousands of people and events: Six Month International Yoga Teachers Training Residential Certificate Courses each year; four major International Yoga Conferences (one each decade) and at least twenty minor conferences; four major sites of Institutional buildings in Pondicherry; fifty years of publishing the rnonthly magazine YOGA LIFE without missing an issue; establishing a publishing house Satya Press with fifty titles to its credit; producing the "Crest jewel" of the book production unit, the fabulous fifty-two lesson Correspondence Course YOGA: STEP BY STEP, formulated so simply, so brilliantly, so comprehensively by Yogamaharishi Dr. Swami Gitananda Giri Guru Maharaj; construction of three major teachings centres: AnandaAshram at Sri Kambliswamy Madam on five acres of land; the International Centre for Yoga Education and Research (ICYER) on two acres near the Bay of Bengal and the centrally located City Centre Yoganjali Natyalayam, established in 1993 all these works simply unfolded like flowers destined to bloom on their own accord. Dozens of World Tours, hundreds of All India tours, including pilgrimages to Amarnath in Kashmir and the Char Dham Kedarnath, Yamnotri, Gangotri and Badrinath. The national television twenty episode series "Yoga for Youth" broadcast for several years from 1989 throughout India on Doordarshan, the Government's national television channel. The Sri Kambliswamy Yoga and Cultural Arts for Youth Programme started in 1975 in which tens of thousands of village youngsters were trained in Yoga, Bharatanatyam and Carnatic Music, given food, clothing, books, educational and medical help. The development of a troupe of Bharat Natyam dancers capable of holding their own on any professional stage; scores of scientific research projects on Yoga; revival of the YOGNAT25
  10. 10. traditional acrobatic Natya Karanas (poses) of Bharat Natyam, yet, even this long list is justa small fragment of the vast flow of events and projects which have been projected on the screen of our lives ... in this long, long dream! And now, we wake for a moment at this point in earthly years fifty years later after the starting point, and gaze behind as well as ahead ... consciousness lights up the present with an inner joy that the Divine has given us such marvelous moments, people and works with which to adorn our lives. We lift our eyes to the mountain peak, the long trail which lies a head before we achieve the summit, and look below and savour the view of a life sincerely lived. The breeze is refreshing, the sleepers awake in consciousness. The great juggling, the magnificent picture show enthralls in its magic. Where have we been? Where shall we go? What is This Reality, which is as fragile as wisp of smoke clinging to a dew drop shimmering on a rain-drenched rose petal? Beloved faces, well loved places, exhilarations, dejections, battles won and battles lost, devotees coming, devotees going, suns rising and setting, moons waxing and waning, tides rising and falling, childhood blooming into youth, maturing into age ... how glorious the magical mystic show! How little of it we comprehend with the mind! How much of it we embrace with the heart! In consciousness, we feel the Guru here! In consciousness, we know That Perfect Shining Spirit that Brilliant Adorable Light of Lights Shines on the blank screens of our minds, creating this wonderful saga of searching, striving souls replete with all the drama of outlandish tales ... Fifty years, a blink of the eye! A lighting flash across a dark and brooding sky; Asingle flutter of a humming bird's tiny wings! Yes, in consciousness, a celebration, a marking, a rite of passage. We rest a moment on a smooth rock, feel the cool breeze sweep across ourface and smell the scent of the gorgeous fresh earth after a soothing rain. Fifty years! We wake, we pause, we reflect, we gaze at the enchanting valley below, then, we lift our eyes once more to the summit. We rise, resume our trek. The long, long dream weaves its magic slumber like a cocoon about our souls. The summit calls we have miles to go before we wake once more. Perhaps then and there at the peak of the evolutionary mountain the Final Awakening shall come-Moksha-the Last and Final Freedom, from which no dreams shall ever emerge again. YOGNAT25

  24. 24. You are the light of the sacred Vedas, reigning as king of the world of Ashtanga Yoga.You embody all wealth and are a deity worshipped by the entire world. You are the Jnani who fulfils desires of both this world and the next. Appearing to me, as an Acharya to rule and guide me, you have given me the Divine nectar. How can I reciprocate such atreasure? Youshower compassion on me and thy mercy gushes forth bursting like an ocean through a broken dam. King of supreme pleasures, you are ever alive in my thoughts. Youare the wise soul, who eradicates all my Karmic sins and are the wish fulfilling tree that helps me whenever I am in need. Living near the lotus-filled tank in the abode of the goddesses, radiant like a crystal in thy wisdom, you are the supreme embodiment of the Divine Guru! * This ancient, beautiful hymn has been sung by devotees for more than a century in praise of the well known Ashtanga Yoga Guru, Akanda Paripurana Satchidananda Srilasri Kambaliswamigal interred in the Sri Kambaliswamy Samadhi Site, Thattanchavady, Pondicnerrv, India.

Janaki Devi worked all my rough edges for a good three to four years of one to one classes. The rough became a little less rough as the years ticked by and as a fledgling tries to put its new found skills to good use out in the big wide world, so did 1. I missed the depth of the teachings and eventually, through geo- graphical necessity, I found my next teacher who was very grounded in the essence of the Gitananda tradition. Yogacharini Kalavathi Devi aimed high and through her relentless commit- ment to the delivery of Swarnijt's messdge I was able to complete more study with her over the last decade. What a great Boon this year to be able to share time with Dr Ananda]l. Kalavathi and [anaki.
