How Shiva As Mahakal Propels You Towards Mukti| #ShivaLivingDeath Ep 4 | Sadhguru

, , 100 Comments


Those who are aspiring for mukti,
this dimension that we’re referring to as Mahakala becomes of paramount importance. The Mahakala
temple, it will shake you from the root of your existence. Shiva is a god who should not be named,
because to name him is to limit and curtail him. At the same time, the sum of his many, many
names also bring out the indescribable mystery of who he is or indescribable mysteries of
what this creation is. Of his various forms, Kala or Mahakala is an important, at the same time
a fierce form. As Mahakala, he is the Lord of time, as Kalabhairava, he is the destroyer of time.
Kala means time. Time, as you experience it, is only the cyclical
movement of physical existence. The earth rotates – it’s a day. The moon goes
around the earth – that’s a month. The earth goes around the sun – that’s a year. Everything
you know as time, including your watch, is all about cycles. Everything that’s
physical is cyclical in nature. From atomic to cosmic, everything that’s
physical is naturally cyclical in nature. And because of your physical existence, because of your
involvement with the physical nature of who you are, you have a sense of time. As you sit here,
because you have a body, it is keeping time. If you become free from the cyclical movement of life,
then we say you are in mukti or absolute liberation. So, those who are aspiring for mukti, those
who are seeking absolute liberation, for them, this dimension that we’re referring to as
Mahakala becomes of paramount importance. It once happened, the great sage Shukracharya,
who was the Guru for all the demons, did a tremendous span of austerities in worship
of Shiva and Shiva had to appear. When he appeared, Shukracharya asked for immortality.
Then Shiva said, ‘That is not possible. All that is born has to die. Ask for something else.’ Then
Shukracharya said, ‘Give me the power of rejuvenation, that any kind of wound, any kind of disease,
I can rejuvenate. Give me that power.’ Shiva being the ultimate healer, the master of all herbs
and medicines, gave Shukracharya the Sanjeevini mantra, the mantra for rejuvenating people from any kind of
disease or any kind of wound or injury. Once Shukracharya had this Sanjeevini mantra,
the demons became excessively bold and they waged battle after battle. All the demons
who fall down in the battle with any kind of grievous wound, Shukracharya just
revives them with the Sanjeevini mantra. So ultimately the army of the demons can go
on fighting without losing a single man. The gods got very alarmed and they felt this
is a very unfair battle because how much ever you fight, they don’t die, but we die. So they went to Brahma.
Brahma intervened with Shiva and said, ‘You have given this Shukracharya this kind of power,
you must kill him, otherwise there will be a complete
imbalance in the world. The demons have an unfair advantage over the gods.’ Then Shiva said, ‘There is no need to kill him,
I will contain him.’ Then the battle between the devas and the
demons was going on, Shukracharya was going about uttering the mantra and reviving all
the demons from their injuries and wounds. Then across the horizon, a terrible creature, an ogress
whose name was Kritika, came in a hideous form. She was one of the Shiva ganas. She came and
sucked Shukracharya into her womb and there he remained as a fetus and he was contained
and the balance was set forth between gods and demons, a more fair
and just battles were fought. Then Brahma was so amused, and he thought,
‘It is only Mahakala who can do this, that without killing the person, he can
completely contain his life. Shukracharya remained in the womb of Kritika
and the Sanjeevini mantra became impotent. Or in other words, Mahakala froze time for
Shukracharya that he cannot move on. When we talk about transcendence, when we
talk about spirituality, yoga, we are seeing how to go beyond the
limitations of time and space. Because time and space belongs to the physical
plane of the existence. Once you aspire to be spiritual, what it means is, you’re
aspiring to be something more than the physical. Once you are something more than the physical, that means you’re aspiring to be beyond
the limitations of time and space. The Mahakala temple, the linga that is consecrated
there, is of phenomenal nature. It will shake you from the root of your existence.
It is really an incredible consecration. It is just done for this purpose that in some
way, it dissolves you. One must be ready to go into this temple properly
because it’s of a tremendous power and it is not for the fainthearted. It shakes you from inside. Every day, the offering that needs to happen
to Mahakala is fresh ashes from the cremation grounds because that’s what he likes and
that is what keeps it going the way it’s going. Unfortunately, I heard that… We’ve been
getting so bloody civilized, now it seems because some activists protested, they
are not using the ashes from the cremation ground. They’re just using cow dung or bullshit,
unfortunately. this is not just a cultural thing. There is a science to it. If we bring ashes from the
cremation ground and some other ash, I can show you what is the difference between the two.
Experientially, it’s a phenomenal difference. And it’s very, very important that this process is
continued because that is the nature of Mahakala, the very presence of what this Mahakala roopa is,
is when you go there, everything is gone. Everything is burnt into ashes. That means
you become free from the physical. It propels you towards your ultimate liberation. You want
to do that gently, we have everything here. You want to do it in a boom way, you
really want to be pushed hard and you are not faint-hearted, then Mahakala
temple is a phenomenal process

    "In the fetus there lays the sanjeevani mantra .." hmm does anyone smell a sense out of it ??? What if one says the umbilical cord is the actual sanjivani mantra, will it be wrong to say that ?? Nowadays scientists & doctors are saying to preserve the umbilical cord, the best source of stem cells !! Stem cells have the potential to replicate other cells of human body !! By preserving the umbilical cord of a particular person , he will never have to look for the donor in case he needs a kidney transplantation or other organ transplantation, the umbilical cord of that person will help him to supply any kind of body parts whenever is needed!! Hence the umbilical cord of a fetus is the sanjeevani mantra (sanjeevani mantra= the mantra which imparts life in a dead or a damaged body) ..what do u think guys ?? Does it make any sense to you please lemme know in the comment section!!

    My father did a lot of meditation in his young years n he always says that he knew that he was sleeping while he was sleeping. He reached that level …he even started getting flashes of future. I wish to reach that state if it's really true.

    This is one topic where Sadhguru and Swami Nithyananda don't conflict. Both of them are saying same thing in different language. So blessed to have such amazing Gurus.

    Activists are ready to kill thousands of animals for satisfying their palates. But not ready to sacrifice a fistful of human ashes. They think humans are above everything else even after burned.

    What I found in Sadhguru is that he never gives commandment about anything, rather he believes on self realisation which is the difference between an organised religion and spirituality

    Addiction has kept me in its womb … I am in need of a rude awakening. One that I have not experienced. I am unprepared … And afraid. Thank you. Freedom; liberation will be mine.
