Today, you don’t know who is God. You also don’t know where God is. Our scriptures say that until you unlock God’s quotient in you, your life is meaningless. Just as every organ of your body is important, similarly every form of God is important. But your own karma obscures all divine elements as well as spiritual elements to the background. When God is in background in your life, then there is no spiritual element which takes us towards realization and enlightenment. Then karma blocks your self and you feel “I am useless”. You suffer from mood swings. This is because you cannot tap the core of your self as you don’t know how to do it.  You are not aware of your inner powers. However, when God is in foreground of your life, you will have no problems at all. God has created everyone of us. When  your karma decreases through sadhana, your inner power comes to the fore and reaches your inner core called your soul.  But when your karma increases due to bad thoughts, speech and actions then your inner power decreases making you prone to unhealthy thinking and living. Then, every other day you feel let down. Today, if you feel you have lost everything in life, it is because of  your karma.

Don’t lose hope in the first instance. Your inner power does not let you lose hope and you will begin to realize that you are not a loser. You need the invigorating power of your self to constantly keep you going.

Remember, God has given you three powers irrespective of your caste, creed, gender, age, religion, health, skills and talents. These are: a) intellect, b) emotions, will and the power to attain enlightenment  and c) the power to enrich these two powers by invoking the power to destroy all your negativity including bad karma.

Today, you have blocked these three powers through three knots (granthi). These are Brahma granthi, Vishnu granthi and Rudra granthi. They are preventing you from blossoming. Now, let me throw light on the  first knot- Brahma granthi. This is the knot of  intellect. This knot binds you to conflicts and duality. Karma traps your brain power. It doesn’t allow your  mental state to expand and therefore you don’t have the sense of equilibrium. Your intellect is not developed because of your own mindsets, attitudes, gossiping, state of inducing sensational news and views which are mental traps, superstition and no belief in yourself or in others, let alone in God. These are sure shot ways of invoking bad and negative karma. Therefore, you have to cut asunder your Brahma granthi because when the capacity of the brain reduces, automatically mental equilibrium will not be present along with the right kind of grasping and memory power. That means you are not understanding the effect of contentment also in you.

For example, in a class of 50 students, there is only one teacher and one syllabus for all and still there is only one topper, a few takers and the rest of the students fair average or below average. This is due to the knot of brahma granthi locked and operting in each student in different intensity.

This knot can be unlocked through upasana or constant awareness of your discriminatory senses which can be attained through a Guru or mantra jaap. In this manner, when you cut asunder the brahma granthi, your brain cells open up and the grains of knowledge inherent in your brain cells seep into your mind. When the knots of your intellect are thus removed you work with full capacity as the knowledge contained within each of your brain cell is now tapped or connected to your mind.

Since, by birth, knowingly or unknowingly we are heading towards enlightenment, opening the brahma granthi paves way for our enlightenment just like how Lord Buddha attained Enlightenment at the Bodh Gaya.
