Body Energy Arts / Food's affect
« on: July 10, 2005, 08:47:03 PM »
Im sure you have heard the phrase "You are what you eat." So, yea.

Im a vegitarian. Since I have become a vegie, my energy related capibilities have skyrocketed. But this is just me--- most people say what they eat doesn't influence them at all.

Which makes me think of something else. When I don't eat, I can usually use energy a lot better. Its usually the abstance of "heavy" or "denser" foods for me which impact my over all well being. Heavier foods beings specifically meat.

Drugs seem to boost my psychic abilities as well. They tend to make me less body conscienous (more than I am already). But its temporary, and usually have their undesired side effects.

So my advice? Depends on you. :-p But vegitarianism has helped me a lot.

Anything Goes, A Virtual Q&A with Master Daryl (Part 6)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


[Master receives a lot of questions online be it via this website, Yahoo! chat, or email. Questions range from the deep and profound to the most inane annoying nonsense. The answers however are always significant and direct to the point.]

Master Daryl,

What is BAY?

BAY is the heart of all true and major religions, philosophies, and sciences, the volatile potency that keeps all Self-realization disciplines aflame.

Brahman is One Great Power, the Source, Sustainer and Ultimate Refuge of all life. Atman is you, and myself, and every single soul in existence. Yoga refers to the conscious, functional and empowering integration of these two.

What is Kriya Yoga?

Kriya Yoga means applied oneness. It is an advanced body-mind-spirit equilibrium regimen that combines elements of Tantra, Strict Adherence Hatha, Raja Yoga and Siddha Medicine. It is practiced within BAY.

What is the difference between BAY and Kriya Yoga?

Within the BAY fold we see no difference and use both interchangeably. However, to a majority of practitioners the meaning of Kriya Yoga shrunk down to refer specifically to a set of techniques taught by Lahiri Mahasaya in the 1860s, instead of just being the name preferred by Sage Patanjali to identify the entire philosophy and practice he expounded in his Oneness Aphorisms. BAY goes well beyond what Lahiri Mahasaya taught open-mindedly embracing the wisdom of Sage Patanjali as well as other masters while remaining loyal to our own.

Why are you the Master of BAY? Why not someone more popular, more intelligent, more powerful, more wealthy or influential? Why not someone older or younger?

The Way is always at the middle, in a state of perpetual balance between opposite extremes. That is why the Lord always chooses souls who are also at the middle, whose personalities resonate with the nature of the Way, to represent it.

I've been going through your "Anything Goes" articles and I have to admit that I am completely blown away by your ability to answer all sorts of questions, even technical ones and those involving old languages and interpreting religious scriptures that I'm sure you did not grow-up with. How do you do it?

May I give you two answers? One is coming from my head, an intellectual answer, and the other is coming from my heart, an intuitive answer.

My first answer is "I do not know." It just happens that while hearing or reading a question all of a sudden I get the answer; I do not even need to pause and think.

My theory is that it is due to having studied a lot of stuff, and because I have always been highly imaginative to the point that reading something is almost equal to experiencing it, I managed to remember most of what I have studied and they surface to the conscious mind when triggered by questions.

My second answer is "because I am the Master." And I am saying this with sincerity, humility and in complete awe; because up to now my humanity—fully aware of my own weaknesses and limitations—cannot accept it. There are times when I am also being educated by what I write or say, and the most essential answers that I give can't be found anyplace else.

When I feel down or confused I go through my own writings and find solace and peace, acknowledging that I am only a steward and the teachings are really coming from the One Great Power. See? I am also nothing but a disciple of my inner Guru.

Is your Kundalini awake?

What do you think?

Is it true that Kundalini awakening is dangerous?

It depends on what kind of method you have in your hands. If you happen to possess some really powerful instructions, as opposed to to various sham techniques marketed nowadays as "Kundalini Yoga," and you don't have a living master to personally guide you then you can go insane or develop some debilitating illness due to certain errors in practice. One major problem is if the Kundalini does go up but through the wrong conduit. Shakti going up through the pingala nadi, for example, could cause your body to just be consumed by amplified inner fire.

Is it true that Kriya Yoga practice hastens human evolution?

Yes, Kundalini is human evolutionary energy, forcing it to uncoil and ascend from center to center in the spinal pathway is therefore the only way to accelerate normal evolutionary processes.

By the aid of a special breathing technique life force is made to move up and down, revolving around the six chakras (muladhara, swadishthana, manipura, anahata, vishudha, and ajna) corresponding to the twelve (by polarity) zodiacal signs. This innerdimensional orbit of mind and energy around the spinal chord effects a progressive transformation in the body-mind constitution.

The sharp ascent of cool prana pierces the granthis and clears the way for subsequent ascent of Kundalini. Apana and udana meets and combusts at the base chakra stimulating primal force.

Paramhansa Yogananda said that half a minute of Kriya is equivalent to a year of natural evolution. Is that a fact and how is it a fact? I am seriously considering applying Kriya Yoga initiation.

That is a fact to a "deeply developed yogi." Yogananda said, "The Kriya shortcut, of course, can be taken only by deeply developed yogis." (Autobiography of a Yogi, 1946 Edition, p. 234) Many tend to omit that part. The evolutionary equivalent of one Kriya can range from a day, to a week, to a month, to a year depending on a person's own samskaras and degree of mastery.

Hastening evolution, however, is not the only reason why people should take-up to the practice of Kriya Yoga. I have stated its many benefits in different areas of life in this article. Actually, only an absolute idiot would, after hearing what the masters say about Kriya Yoga, still oft not to receive it.

Is Kriya Yoga a science?

It is a spiritual science.

In what way is it a science?

In the way that its effects are totally predictable constituting a fact.

Take two persons who are more or less alike in terms of spiritual development, teach them Kriya Yoga until they are both proficient, prescribe an adequate number of Kriyas to be practiced within a year, make sure that they practice everyday without fail, then after the prescribed time has lapsed bring them together. You will see that they are both productive, happy, and content with their lives; their spiritual progress has greatly accelerated and are quite the same realization-wise regardless of the difference in physical and environmental factors.

How can I accurately determine the level of other people's spiritual development?  How can I gauge where another person is "realization-wise"?

First you have to be a sage. That is why I said that Kriya Yoga is a "spiritual science." It would take a good number of spiritual adepts to effectively perform an experiment like that.

What is the path to enlightenment?

The distance between darkness and light, between the individual and the Universal, is just the distance between the coccygeal and coronal centers.

The straight and narrow path to the kingdom of God is the straight and narrow path of the spine.

This is why though we are skeptical and cautious with regards to other practices and remain faithful and confident with our own ways, descrimination, self-righteousness and exclusivism is completely absent in BAY. We accept any discipline or system that has been proven to facilitate the ascent of the most constricted "I-ness" consciousness towards the Christ or "I and the Father are one" consciousness as a valid technique in the path.

Most Christians I know look at me like I have three heads when I mention the concept of enlightenment. You might as well say voodoo. It's really something they're not familiar with.

It seems that anyone on a serious spiritual journey would be most concerned with "facilitating the ascent of the most constricted 'I-ness' consciousness towards the Christ or 'I and the Father are one' consciousness."

In my experience I have not seen evidence of this in any Christians I know.

Master, what is the reason for this failure in Christianity. Did Jesus ever reveal any techniques for attaining enlightenment?


The Lord took earthly incarnation to fulfill a deep and pressing desire to save those who have remained his faithful and loving servants through many incarnations. It was to introduce a dispensation of love that was to replace a dispensation of fear, coercion and mindless adherence to fixed principles and laws.

Enlightening people wasn't really a major purpose, other masters like Siddharta already began doing that. Mass consciousness at Jesus' time was too low to handle that kind of transformation. Yet he did give some special teachings to his inner circle:

"And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given." » Matthew 13:10&11

"And he [the primal energy] arose, and rebuked the wind [ the breath], and said unto the sea [the mind], Peace, be still. And the wind ceased [the mind was transcended], and there was a great calm [samadhi]." » Mark 4:39

"Yogash chitta vritti nirodha" [Yoga means to still and transcend the fluctuations of the mind] » Yoga Sutras 1:2

The way to accomplish even greater works:

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me [make samyama on my being], the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father." » John 14:12

The process of individualization, ascent of the serpent (primal force) takes the Son of man (I-ness) consciousness into heaven:

"If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up" » John 3:12-14

To the rest Jesus taught

Man's divine nature:

"Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?" » John 10:34

The Kingdom:

"The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you." » Luke 17:20&21

How to worship God:

"Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." » John 4:21-24

And how to know if the Spirit of God resides in them:

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law." » Galatians 5:22&23

With regards to the degree of "attainment" of the faithful:

"Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he [the Christ] shall appear, we shall be like him [in consciousness]..." » 1 John 3:2

Though clear about their belief with regards to the ultimate outcome of their lives as Christ's workers (which reminds me of Krishna's eternal  assurance to Arjuna, "In truth do I promise thee, thou shalt attain Me!"), the above passage can also be taken as an _expression of experiential uncertainty. It is possible that though Jesus' disciples were deeply devotional and were so empowered in terms of performing miracles many of them, perhaps the majority, failed to reach the final merger, the state of absolute and irrevocable oneness.

Thus Jesus' last wish in prayer:

"Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one." » John 17:20-22

This could be the reason behind what you termed as "failure" to perpetuate the inner teachings.

Hello!

I just hope I'm not bothering you with my messages, but wished to hear your thoughts...


It is a fulfillment of my life's purpose to answer your questions.

What would you call "a spiritual awakening," I mean, those experiences a person has gained and have led to that or things like that. What lead to that?

A spiritual awakening is doubtless realization and acknowledgement of your core identity as spirit, a significant fraction of God, and not just another pleasure-driven animal. A spiritually awake person thinks, speaks and acts more as a spirit than a psychophysical organism. His ways are often pure, mindful, enlightening and purpose-driven.

What leads to this kind of realization? The sincere desire to finally find out and actualize the truth of your being, the strength and one-pointed determination to break free from the cycle of suffering (birth, sorrow, old age, disease, and death), an effective mentor, a powerful sadhana (spiritual practice), discipline and the willingness to surrender to the gradually unfolding Truth.

Im about to post an article on this.

But, yea, a Guru can, and is recommended for Kudalini awakening. All due to the complexities and the psycological upheals it can cause. Without proper awakening and maintence, you could quite litterly go insane--- if not worst.

Spirituality / Memoriological Exploitation
« on: June 30, 2005, 07:53:09 PM »
Such a thing would be very dangerious and to not be tampered with.

Its like taking all of my memories and giving them to you. You can and may learn from them, but each thing that I experienced is ment for me and my Karma. To impose a... "copy" (for lack of a better word) or imprint of my memories would be wrong. It would only add to the person exisiting psycological admoralities. So it would do more harm than anything.

Spirituality / What Is Hinduism?
« on: June 30, 2005, 07:38:38 PM »
Hinduism is a random grouped of Indian beliefs sealed into an abstract religion. It was seen more as a cutural thing than an actual religion for the longest time. The name itself was coined by the Persians. It's really hard to describe actually, since it is so diverse. I know reincarination is a constant, so is Brahman. Some Hindus see the gods as actual beings (and worship them as idols), while others see them as abstract "stories" describing various parts of our nature. As it being divided into those four groups specifically... im preety sure that that is wrong.

So my post was pointless. :-p I even stuided up on Hinduism the past year... but it so much it drove me @_@  So yea...contact Mr. Vi.

Questions & Suggestions / My "Dissappearing" Posts

I made a couple of posts in this thread:

http://forums.theveritasacademy.net/showthread.php?t=5622

It is closed now, but I looked at it and my comments were removed.

Simple Question: Why?

Out of all the frivilous "levitation" threads that there have been here, I post a perfectly valuable method and one that is backed by valid Yogi methods. Despiste the Thread starter (Xanus/Lotus) inate knowelge and deceptive means towards the board, my points were indeed VALID, and seperate from his intent. Even if I don't recommend the use of it, I posted my knowelege as free knowelege for whoever wished to pursue it further. This act has considerbly shaked my already wobbling stand with Vetrias. It's why I rarely post.

But when I do, I don't expect for them to dissappear. Especially in a locked thread. So is this what happens when someone provides a very clear and logical set posts? They just dissappear?

Disturbed and sadden I am by this. Perhaps my hopes were just too high for Vetrias?

Spirituality / Conception of the soul?
« on: June 15, 2005, 12:32:44 PM »
Reincaration is a very complex thing. It's extremely hard to exactly pinpoint the exact entre of the soul. Since time is a constant, it is hard to say "Well this is where it begains, and this is where it ends" since there is no ending or begaining in the grand scheme of things. >_< but back on topic...

I tend to think that it happens gradually. As the physical body is able to support more and more as it grows, then more and more of a "soul" develops, or is reincarnated into a being. It seems illogical for it to just "apppear" in a body.
