In Hindu iconography, Shiva is often depicted with beads Rudraksha on the neck and arms, and the tree itself Saivites compared with the "Wish Tree", which gives knowledge, devotion, mystical forces, and health and promotes the implementation of all earthly desires: to achieve happiness, wealth, peace, comfort and good reputation. Shaivites believe that the man who wears Rudraksha gets to "reward" (or "pulls") the religious knowledge and wisdom, long life and a special blessing of Shiva. Rudraksha is used in traditional Indian medicine: According to Ayurveda, wearing necklaces, beads and bracelet on the body good for the heart and nervous system, reduces stress, anxiety, depression, pain, pressure and improves concentration, protects against "evil eye", the negative impact and obstruction by some planets. Wearing Rudraksha slows aging. Rudraksha beads work on different levels: physical, emotional, planetary, karmic. Rudraksha protects a person, and that belief comes from the ancient times.

Crawl or fly? History with the continuation ...

What the caterpillar calls the End of the World, the Master calls the Butterfly ...

Richard Bach.

The main condition for a magical transformation will be preparedness.

  • Preparedness of the player consists of the degree of his awareness and ability to resist the defenses of the mind, giving up. For this, he must first of all know all his defenses and be able to stop at their revival, directly going to the living of fears. Loving, at the Academy of Leela, we gave the term such a "flow around".
  • The ability to "flow around" is a good prerequisite for complete surrender, but this is only a prerequisite.
  • The erasure of personal life history, separation skills, samadhi experience, service, and many other things that players in the Leela Academy are learning are also necessary to activate the process that Shri Bhagavat calls complete surrender or enlightenment.

It is important to understand that not every caterpillar is ready to become a butterfly.

For this it is not enough just to deliver your body in the field of the master and wait for him to create a miracle.

Afterword. Retreat in Tire 2018 (6th edition).

Well, the main retreat of the past season, the 21-day immersion in the process of putting the Ego in Tiruvannamalai (India) - was completed.

Players went to the kingdom of Shiva, (Mount Arunachala, the living incarnation of Shiva), which is the destroyer of the World.

You can ask how it is - God and suddenly the destroyer? The answer here is simple. The world, like everything that exists in it, must one day disappear, die. After all, there is no one and nothing immortal, except the gods. And if the world dies, it collapses, then there must be a god who will destroy this destruction someday.

In our case, the players had to survive the death of the Ego, the destruction of the world of the individual.

The main unpredictable Gift of this retreat was a meeting of players with Sri Bhagavat, where each player received from the master of the last step, clear instructions for complete surrender, that is, enlightenment.

Three happy days. Retreat in Tire 2018 (5th edition).

Even 6 km before the Ashram, we began to see signs pointing to the Ashram and only after arriving at the territory of the residence of Shri Bhagavat, we saw that we were in a beautiful valley surrounded on all sides by mountains. Leaving the car, we saw Sri Bhagavat coming towards us ...

Sri Bhagavat is the master of the last stage, assuming complete surrender of the mind, which in the spiritual world is called enlightenment.

After a long preparation, the moment comes when the student is ready to receive knowledge of the last stage of training.

It is this teacher that is Sri Bhagavat, who takes the "mature" disciple and directs him exactly into the right Knowledge. Because it is knowledge that provides understanding and is what is called enlightenment and leads to liberation.

Arunachala. Retreat in Tire 2018 (4th edition).

Arunachala has always remained relatively little known. But for those who comprehend the jnana, Arunachala always makes itself felt through these or those other means.

"All the stones in that place [of Arunachala] are lingams." This is indeed the abode of Lord Siva, the words spoken in the Holy Scripture: "and the meditators there will be absorbed into samadhi, beyond the delusions of the mind." Could there be another place that would be equal to him? "Arunachala Puranam.

By the time this article was published, the second week of the retreat in Tiruvannamalai had gone.

And the players have already passed Giri Pradakshanu, bypassing Mount Arunachala during the full moon.

Sri Ramana Maharshi once explained the meaning of this word pradakshina and how this should be done with the help of a devotee: "Letter"

  • Pra "means the removal of all sins;
  • "yes" means fulfilling desires;
  • "Kshi" means freedom from future births;

Annamalaiyar Temple. Arunachala

Place salvation.
SivaPuranam defines four sacred places for salvation.
Thiruvannamalai is one of them.

The value of this place is that the mere remembrance of the Lord in this place Arunachaleswarar gives salvation to all souls (Ninaithale Mukti Tharum Thiruthalam).
In Saivism this temple occupies a special place, being also one of the five Pancha Bhuta Sthalamov (one of the five great temples associated with the five basic elements) - is associated with the fire. The other four: Thiruvanaikaval Dzhambukeshvara (water), Chidambaram (ether), Kanchi Ekambareshvara (earth) and Kalahasti Nathar (air).
For the first time the temple is mentioned in the works of the poet Nakkirar, so we can assume that he is not less than two thousand years.

Arunachala - the incarnation of Shiva.

Asked about the special sanctity of Arunachala, Ramana Maharshi said that other holy places, such as Kailash, Kasi and Chidambaram are sacred because they are the abode of Lord Shiva, while Arunachala is Lord Siva himself.
However, as the above verse Arunachala Mahatmyam says, it is the secret of Arunachala Kshetra. It is a place that bestows jnana (knowledge of self), but most people have so many other desires, and do not really want jnana.
Arunachala has always been relatively little known. But for those who understands jnana, Arunachala always makes itself felt through these or other means.

21 retreat Thiruvannamalai. Afterword.

In Thiruvannamalai (India) completed 21 days silent retreat held Leela Academy for the formless levels of players.

The participants of the retreat had the task of total ego surrender.

About how this happened understanding and delivery of the delivery itself, you can see in the reports of players, but first, we recall, as is said, one of the teachers of Rama Ramesh Balsekar.

"... Only that precedes the appearance of the body-consciousness, there is your true self That's reality. This is - here and now can be no question about the fact that someone was able to achieve or realize it.
Man, fear of insecurity and hoping for help from higher powers, creates the concept of a supernatural God. But this God, and the very essence of striving for safety in it, both of them - no more than a concept.
Experience is never real, but only conceptual. Whatever the experience, it is an event, taking place only in the mind ... "
So, now the statements of participants of the retreat ...
