DEATH A CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY ‘DEATH’ CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY ‘BAKA -BIALLAH’ TH’ DEATH A CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY DEATH CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY TAOSHOBUDDHA SWAMI ANAND NEELAMBER PREM SUTRA A PRODUCTION OF www.taoshobuddhameditations.com E MAIL: email@example.com Taoshobuddha@gmail.com firstname.lastname@example.org DEATH A CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY DEEP WITHIN YOU IS THE BUDDHA! BUDDHAHOOD IS YOUR NATURE! AND TO LIVE IN YOUR NATURE IS MEDITATION ‘MEDITATION IS CELEBRATION! CELEBRATION OF CONSCIOUSNESS! And CELEBRATION OF BEING!’ DEATH A CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY MEDITATION means you have experienced ‘ONENESS’ within. A oneness that gives a vision the CREATOR and the CREATION are one. DESIRELESSNESS IS MARAQBA. DEATH. A CONSCIOUS DEATH! THIS IS Meditation gives you the taste of your being. Meditation leads first to dissolution into your being and then dissolution into cosmic being. This is beginning of Samadhi or Satori. You come to realize that the entire creation is floating in Divine Placenta. In that state the meditator finds, all Buddhas are one as they have reached to the same source where life has once evolved. This realization is Satori – a window into Totality. It takes a while before this realization settles. As this realization settles one attains to SAMADHI. DEATH A CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY First, love gives you unity in your innermost core. Then you are no more a body. No more a mind, no more a soul. You are simply one. Unnamed, undefined, unclassified! No more determinate, definable, no more comprehensible. A mystery, a joy, a surprise, jubilation, and a great celebration! A BEING ALONE! This is taste of your being. At this point Healing happens. This is MEDITATION! Meditation the ultimate in healing by Taoshobuddha DEATH A CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY DEATH IS CELEBRATION HOW A SHEIKH SHOULD LEAVE THE WORLD is the realization of this awareness. yh Kya raj hE saik@ mSt beoud ik Ab tUne cZme #nayt hqa lI vhI mykda hE mgr sUna sUna vhI jamae mIna mgr oalI oalI #nayt ka r<g Aaj bdla huAa hE vh hE< ya< jama bdl kr bEQe hu@ jra Apne cZme hkIkI se deoae n yh jam oalI n vaeh jam oalI. What is this secret that physically you are no more? Everything is same yet still something has changed. Toda the form or the nature of grace is DEATH A CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY different. Look at things through your inner vision and you will find no place devoid of that SUBTLE PRESENCE! Life is the beginning. And death is considered as the end. Life and death are two sides of the same coin. Or these are two ends of life’s tunnel. One end is life and the other is death. I am not calling these as entrance and exit. The entrance and exit are meaningful only in relation to the realm you are in. For example you are in a room then this is your realm. Going out of the room will be exit and vice versa. On the other hand if the room door opens into another area which is your realm. Then what meant to be exit in relation to the room will mean entry in relation to the other area. So too is the case of life and death. Or journey from one realm to another! You are entering form the known to the unknown or the subtle one. One unfolds into the other. Life/death is the door to beyond. Life and death are like a door sign which has on one side written ‘Life’ and ‘Death’ on the other side. As an individual you have to go beyond both life and death only then you can one day attain to fruition. If life is a yagna as Hindus call their way of ritualistic worship then death is the culmination or the final offering in that holy sacrificial fire of life – the ultimate. Death will determine how you have lived your life full of awareness or unconsciousness. If you have wasted your DEATH A CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY life in useless pursuits of duality, conflict, and negation of life force then life has been a waste. Then in the moments of death there will be fear, pain and loss. On the other hand if life has been full of awareness then you will exit from the life joyfully, full of awareness, singing and dancing. Life of such a man of awareness is a blessing and death is even a bigger blessing – benediction. Remember when a master – a man of awareness leaves the world tremendous energy is released. And if you are aware you can be enlightened that very moment. The life energy that was encaged within the narrowness of the body-mind realm is now being released. Normally your awareness is only that of the body-mind realm so we continue to lament at such an occasion. And you forget all your scriptures and sermons that soul never dies. This has not become part of your awareness and inner growth. Anything that remains on the surface can never transform you. And even you make efforts to remember this you will forget. For any teaching to be part of your awareness first has to grow within you as part of your growth. Only then it will evolve from deep within. This alone can transform you and give you moment to moment awareness of that which is. In the absence your efforts will prove futile. Desirelessness is the path that leads to the experience of totality. It leads to the experience of the immortal within. Tasuwware sheikh - Taoshobuddha DEATH A CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY However each one of us is inflicted by myriad desires. Desires imply life. Desires continue to plague human mind in a continuum. This is chain reaction. One leads to the other. And the process continues unabated. And Desirelessness is the state of life beyond. Or what we generally call as death. Before I take you through this composition and the process of Tasawwuf something of the composer! This is one of the compositions of Mirza Ghalib. In this he has brought out the falsafa of life. Mirza Asadullah Baig Khan, Ghalib a great classical Urdu and Persian poet of the Indian subcontinent was born in Agra during the terminal period of Mughal rule on 27 December 1796. He is considered to be the most popular and influential poet of the Urdu language. Ghalib today remains popular amongst Urdu speakers not only in India and Pakistan but also amongst diaspora communities around the world. Ghālib means dominant. This is the pen name that he used. He had seven children but none survived. This pain echoes in some of Ghalib's ghazals. He died on 15 February 1869. The house where he lived in Gali Qasim Jaan, Ballimaran, Chandni Chowk, in Delhi, has now been turned into 'Ghalib Memorial' and houses a permanent exhibition on him. hjarae< Ovaihze @esI ik hr Ovihz pe dm inkle DEATH A CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY bhut inkle mere Arman leikn i)r -I km inkle. Life and death are two poles of existence. Death is more total and significant than life. Life is just trivial and superfluous. Death is far deeper! Through death you grow into real life. And through life you can only reach death. Life is a continuous journey. All that you understand by life is desire just a journey towards death. The entire life is a journey of desire and nothing else. Once you know that life is just a journey, and then you will be less interested in life. Your interest in death will increase. Once you are interested in death, you can delve deeper in life. You will not want to remain on the circumference. Life implies desire. Desire to live! Desire to be in every possible way! Desirelessness implies being closed to the outer world of duality. This is conscious death. This is death through Maraqba. It is only in death that you resurrect. By nature you cannot be interested in death. In every possible way, you want to escape death. You are afraid of death. What is the reason? You have made our life a garden, while you have completely deserted the domain of death. And everyone is afraid of moving from an oasis to a desert. Death is not far. It is now and here. We are dying every moment. It is true physiologically, psychologically, and emotionally. Every moment cells die in our body and in their place new cells are born. Human skin constantly changes. While we are dying, we DEATH A CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY continue to be concerned about life. Such concern about life is just a deep concern, a fear. Death is right there. It is deep inside. And not only there but is growing constantly. What you need to do is take an 180-degree turn. When you are concerned with death, then life will unfold a new meaning to you. Once you are at ease with death, without any fear you enter into a deathless life. A life of tranquility and bliss! The moment you come to know death you will encounter life – eternal. Death is the door from the superfluous life on the circumference. When you pass through this door you enter the domain of life that you have never known. A dimensionless domain of eternity! A dimensionless domain of deeper, eternal, deathless life! From the life on the circumference, which is nothing but death, you pass through the door of death. Then you experience a life that is existential and eternal but without death. Both death and Desirelessness are synonymous. When through Maraqba you attain to the state of Desirelessness you have in fact tasted death. This is the death of all that is finite. This is fana as well. Desirelessness is immortality. To reach the domain of immortality you have to pass through the door consciously. We die many times but only unconsciously. You consider death as something inauspicious and ugly. You die most of the time, in a state of sleep or while unconscious. You are so afraid of death that the moment death approaches you become DEATH A CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY afraid and unconscious. When you die in this state, you are re-born. The whole process repeats itself. And, thus, continues the saga of the journey of the being. But you are not concerned with death. Once you are ready to experience death rather than life, then you can pass through the door of death consciously. This is what Maraqba is. Maraqba implies to pass through the door of death consciously. To die consciously is Maraqba. However, you cannot wait for death, because death happens every moment. And the door is not somewhere outside. Also, it is not a normal door that you know. The door is inside you. It is right there now. What is necessary for this is to accept the very act of death. Once you have accepted death, feel it every moment, live it, and be aware of it. Then suddenly the door opens. And through this door you begin to glimpse the life eternal. It is only through death you can experience eternity. It can be said that meditation is conscious death, a voluntary death. This is just a process of deepening within or drowning within. You are no more on the surface, instead you are moving deeper into your being. By Death is meant moving away from the surface. Moving away from the life of desires! Desirelessness is Maraqba. This is death. A conscious death! From times immemorial this blossoming of flowers in the garden of the existence has been happening and shall continue erelong. DEATH A CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha, Pythagoras, Heraclitus, Bodhidharma, Mahabir, Lau Tzu, Chung Tzu, Krishna, Rama, Raman, Ram Krishna, Vivekanand, Nanak, Kabir, Mira, Rabia, Mira, Osho, Shah Bahauddin, Al Hilaj Mansoor, Bayzid Bistami, Sheikh Ahmad Al Farooqui, Sheikh Baqui Billah, Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jillani, Sufi, Ram Chandra, Sufi Raghuber Dayal, Sufi Brij Mohan Lal, Milerapa, Rumi, Kabir, Guru Gobind Singh are just to name a few. LOOK AT THESE LILLIES. THEY ARE FAR MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN SOLOMON IN HIS MOST PRECIOUS ATTIRE. THUS CAME THUS GONE THESE FLOWERS. IN THEIR BLOSSOMING EXISTENCE CELEBRATED ITS FRUITION. AND IN THEIR WITHERING NAY DISSOLUTION TOO EXISTENCE CELEBRATED. THE FLOWER THAT HAS BLOSSOMED ONE DAY DISSOLVED INTO TOTALITY LEAVING ITS BEAUTY, FRAGRANCE, SERENITY, LOVE AND AWARENESS INTO COSMOS. JUST AS A SEED BLOSSOMS ONE DAY INTO MYRIAD FLOWERS! THUS CELEBRATES LIFE. AND THEN ONE DAY DISAPPEARS IN THE UNKNOWN OBLIVION! IN THAT TOO IT GIVES BIRTH TO MYRIADS OF NEW SEEDS. THUS DEATH A CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY CONTINUES THE PROCESS OF TRANSFORMATION AND THE BIRTH OF THE NEW MAN! SUCH HAS BEEN THE LIFE OF EACH ONE OF THESE FLOWERS. OSHO: Many years ago when Dr Amrito asked Osho how would you like to celebrate your death? An Elightened Osho responded – ‘take me to Buddha hall for tem minutes! And from there take me straight to the burning Ghat for cremation!’ Introspect, these words. Can any ordinary person say such words? No! Not at all! Only a Buddha! The enlightened one can really say so. Such is Osho! What really overwhelms me is the tremendous awareness in this statement. One thing is certain! Noone takes the living one for cremation. If it be so then at what precise moment did osho leave the finite existence? Of course he did not leave before he came to the Buddha hall. Also he did Not leave during the ten minutes when he was in the Buddha hall. Then when did he leave. First Osho gave the living message of a Buddha. And coming to the end of the ten minute period he allowed his being to dissolve into the entire cosmos, it is at this precise moment Osho DEATH A CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY leave the world. The purpose of life is fulfilled. The flower has now dissolved into the vastness of the existence. Only an enlightened one can really live life like this. And when life is lived like this then death becomes a celebration. RAM KRISHNA: A being of tremendous awakening he had liking for a particular dish. During the meditation sessions he will run inside to the kitchen to enquire of the menu for the day. This was quite embarrassing for everyone. At this Sharda said, ‘Your this behaviour and the desire for food is quite embarrassing for even your disciples. You cannot resist that you have to come to the kitchen even during the meditation or prayer sessions.’ Hearing this awakened or enlightened Ram Krishna said, ‘There is nothing that can hold me to this life. I have crossed all obstacles. My work on this earth is not over as yet. As a result I had to create a conscious desire so that I can stay on earth until my work is over. The day I turn my face from the food remember three day after that I will be no more alive.’ Everyone thought this as another excuse of the master. But no one could tune in to his awareness or his inner state of awakening. DEATH A CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY It happened. Ram Krishna was suffering from throat cancer. He was resting on the bed. Sharda brought the platter of food for him and said that she had prepared his favourite dish. Awakened Ram Krishna looked at Sharda as if to remind her of something and then turned his face away from the food to the other side. Hearing this Sharda remembered the words many years ago, ‘The day I turn my face away from food three days after that I will not be alive.’ The platter slipped from the hands of Sharda. Exactly three day after that Ram Krishna entered Samadhi. Introspect on this. Life was celebration and death too a celebration for Ram Krishna. MILEREPA: Milerepa is a Tibetan master. He lived in a temple. He was on his death bed. His disciples were surrounding him. Sound of Om continued to echo inside the room. Everyone realized that no one was creating this sound and yet still this sound was in the room. Anxiously each looked for the source of this echo but could not find. Then someone put his easy of one part of Milerapa it was confirmed that the sound was coming from each cell of his body. This is celebration of death that a master can give a taste. DEATH A CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY AL HILLAJ MANSOOR: He used to go on the public places and declare ‘ANAAL HAQ’ – I am the light, I am the truth. This is blasphemy according to Islamic tradition. Only Holy Prophet Peace be upon Him is Anaal haq. Even his master Junnaid had the courage to say this. Junnaid used to tell Hillaj not to say such things although he knows this to be true. At this Hillaj would say what he can do if Allah wants him to declare. Hillaj was caught and killed. People would ask hil what is ultimate. Hillaj invited him to come next day to the place of execution. Hillaj’s limbs were being cut but he kept on laughing and the sound ‘Anaal Haq’ continued to echo. BUDDHA: Someone asked where you will go after you die. Buddha took a candle lit it. As the candle was lit the light spread and then suddenly Buddha put off the flame. Then addressing the commune Buddha asked one moment ago the candle was lit and then suddenly the flame was out. From where the light came and where it did disappeared. The light came from nowhere and disappeared in the vastness of ‘NOWHERE’. DEATH A CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY THUS CAME THUS GONE. ‘TATHAGATA’ Buddha is said to have told Anand that he is now going to enter the existence MAHAPARI NIRVANA or simply death. As was about to enter a man named ‘SUBHADRA’ came running. He wanted to meet Buddha. Many a times he wanted to come but the world and its affairs kept him away. He was stopped by Anand that Buddha has gone to enter MahaPari Nirvana. This is the last moment of his life. Buddha heard this. So he asked Anand to allow the person to come in. Also he said something very significant. Buddha said, ‘I do not want the humanity to know that Buddha was alive and he refused to meet someone.’ Such was the awareness of Buddha. SUFI NAQSHBANDI RAMCHANDRA On August 14, 1931 when he entered Mahasamadhi he went on explaining that life force or rooh has now left a particular part of the body. He continued to explain this until the life force reached the vocal cord. After that no more explanation as the voice ceased. And all those who DEATH A CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY were present in the room experienced witness a bight lighted ball came out of his mount and disappeared inn the unknown filling the entire room with its incandescence for a moment. Ordinary human beings cannot witness the dissolution of a master. The room had only a few enlightened ones. SUFI NAQSHBANI RAGHUBER DAYAL: June 7th 1947 it was afternoon enlightened sheikh had his afternoon snack. Thereafter purposely he send everyone away for one reason or the other. He was all alone. Then he sat in meditation and consciously allowed the life force to release the finite realm of the body. Thus the sheikh dissolution! entered Samadhi. A conscious SUFI NAQSHBANDI BRIJ MOHAN LAL Sheikh Brij Mohan Lal exhibited this awareness throughout life. When life is full of such awareness death becomes a benediction, a celebration. Such a life living and even death becomes a song, a dance, and a celebration. After the marriage of his daughter Gyatri to Sufi Lakshmi Sahai (the coauthor in this book) sheikh was completely detached from life. It appeared as if he was waiting for the final moment of dissolution. Journeying DEATH A CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY along the ocean of life nourishing and nurturing all those who came in his company the life of Sheikh Brij Mohan Lal continued. Then came the January 6th 1955 when the Sufi Master set for the final journey full of awareness and understanding that time has now come for the final transcendence and dissolution into the vastness of the existence. His program for journey to Mumbai (Bombay then) began. Along the journey many came to seek his blessings. To everyone he gave the hint for the final journey. At the same time he veiled the cognition of all those who visited him en-route. Such things are kept a secret from ordinary human consciousness. Ordinary human consciousness has not yet transcended beyond his life and death. First the aspirant has to transcend beyond individual life and death. And then he goes beyond the cosmic dissolution and evolution. Or simply cosmic life and death! Only an individual who has experienced cosmic life and death in the moments of solitude can really witness soul’s journey to the life beyond. And such secrets can only be revealed to such a person. I had experienced this when during my visit to India I met my uncle Sufi Master Sufi Onkar Nath. During this meeting a hint was given that this is our last meeting. But I could not reveal this to anyone. When such secrets are revealed you are plunged in the ocean of bliss and serenity full of gratitude. DEATH A CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY A master is not body. The body must undergo its metamorphosis. But the Rooh is ever indestructible. Rooh is the incarnation of the whole or Allah as Noor within the finiteness of the body. Sheikh’s program for the return journey was not published in the monthly magazine. And no one could notice this. It was only after the demise that it was noticed that the Sufi did not allow his return program be published. When someone is no more how could he plan anything then? His return journey was to be planned by others. This is the reason it was not published. On January 17th, 1955 he reached the city of Mumbai early in the morning. And in the evening congregation amidst disciple his discourse had the message of forgiveness. He spoke of ‘forgiveness’ in the light of a Hindu Scripture – Ram Charit Manas. The talk centered the understanding of the one who is beyond narrowness. Generally it is not easy for anyone to forget and forgive. We seem to forgive only on the surface and deep down the seed of forgiveness never grows in the barren soil. The story narrates the fierce battle between the demon king Ravana and Ram was over as Ravana was slain. Now, Ravana is no more. And with this all enmity also vanished. But such is not the case. We continue to nourish and nurture the seeds of acrimony even after the person is no more. Thus you continue to live in the graveyards of the putrefied emotions. Ravana’s dead body lay in the battlefield. He is still counting for the DEATH A CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY final journey of the Rooh or the soul. Rama went close by. And in a flash the soul of Ravana dissolved in the vastness of Rama. As this happened the soul or Rooh of Sheikh Brij Mohan Lal left the finite existence to merge in Totality! Fruition happened. Totality merged into totality. KABIR: Kabir moved from Banaras a place where he lived all his life to nearby place that was considered as profane. People come from all quarters to die I Banaras and Kabir moved from such a holy city to a profane place for the last days of his life. Kabir died in Maghar a place nearly 13 miles from Banaras. After his death there was quarrel among his Hindu and Muslim disciples over his funeral. Each wanted the funeral his way. It was found the next day when the crowd gathered still undecided about the funeral. And when the sheet covering the body was removed the body of Kabir had disappeared and instead the remains of the body were remains of mortal body. I can go on and on about other masters as well. Just as a master lived, celebrating, singing and dancing each finite moment! So should he die singing, dancing and celebrating as the river of life merges in the vastness of the ocean of existence…Total Acceptance! This is fana or dissolution. DEATH A CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY Total acceptance… total welcome…with a spirit of deep gratitude… a deep let go…. just total gratefulness for the life…The Whole! A master knows very well his journey on this earth in this form is now complete...there is no returning …no more lives… Now he is no longer confined to this space …he is beyond the body…he is beyond the mind…he is beyond time… Now he will become available to many more. At this moment, all those around should be in deep silence with the master everything is for a period…everything has its time…. Seasons come…seasons go… The sun rises in the morning and sets in the evening…life keeps on moving… Once I was a child…in my mother’s arm...helpless…then my body grew older.., One day, it would be time for me to be in the arms of existence… We are here but for a time…nothing really is ours to keep…there should be no “ this is mine…and that is mine ” Whatever is given…welcome it…use it…enjoy it… but always with the remembrance that it is a gift… We have been given the gift of life through this body... welcome it…use it…enjoy it…give reverence and thanks for this gift… DEATH A CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY Enjoy this gift of life…celebrate this gift of life…Live life in its totality…but always with the remembrance that this life is a gift… Therefore, we should not be possessive of this body…it was a gift…a gift given to us by the existence and one day this gift …the gift of this body will be no more…I It will be a time to let it go… There is a commonly used statement…” let go and let God”… Nothings last forever….everything passes…the joys...the sorrow.. A lover was once there…now he is gone…an accidental meeting…now it is time for a separation…a time to let go A child was born…now he has died…a time to let go… Be a witness…be aware…the emotions and feelings in this life do not last forever…in the morning you were happy, now in the evening you have become sad…just be a witness…knowing that all this shall pass… When sadness comes your way…release the tears…no need for fear… Just with the remembrance that this too shall pass… BE AWARE. LIVE YOUR LIFE IN TOTAL CELEBRATION. A LIFE OF CELEBRATION WILL UNFOLD PAGES FROM THE SCRIPTURE OF THE BEING. DEATH A CONSCIOUS DISSOLUTION INTO TOTALITY ONLY THIS MUCH FOR NOW!
