Surrender to divine power completely

Women may wonder why only some men of the priestly class were granted the traditional privilege of wearing this thread.  But for women the sacred thread would be superfluous since this Energy is already present in their womb.  So for them the “thali” is worn on a chain so that it rests over the heart chakra and draws the pure, divine energy (satva), through the form of unconditional love, care, compassion, patience and tolerance from the womb to the spiritual heart centre.  Here it makes the heart blossom and unconditional love flows out through your  speech and affectionate behaviour.  Truly loving nectarine speech can only arise from the Divine Soul which resides in the heart.  The South Indian “thāli” resembles the breasts of the Divine Mother so that each child conceived in the womb of the mother  may drink the milk of Divine wisdom.  When a married woman wears the “thali” being consciously aware of its spiritual significance, the home is filled with Divine Harmony and Happiness.  The children born into such a family have divine qualities.”

Vicious thoughts and thinking: Sarala asked –“Pujya Guruji, when I meditate, a big battallion of bad thoughts come to me.  I have tried spiritual techniques taught to me by several Gurus.  Each time the same thing happens and I end up mentally scolding all the Gurus for not preventing such thoughts from arising in my mind.  Why does this happen ?  Are my thoughts more powerful than the Guru?”

Shri Nimishananda Guruji said – “No.  But each disciple must understand that the Guru will never intervene into your thought processes until your surrender to Him completely. When we meditate, the cork of the sub-conscious, which is the storehouse of millions of memory banks inside you will open up.  So you should allow these thoughts, images and memories to pass by without getting involved with them.  Simply be a witness.  Don’t analyse these thoughts or berate yourself for having them.

If you don’t do this you are creating a new generation of thoughts and expanding your sub-conscious mind instead of emptying it.  So a fresh upper layer of thoughts is formed and this does not allow the lower layers to be emptied. Just sit  still with your eyes closed and allow the stream of thoughts to flow past.  When you do this the mind soon slips into silence.  Always remember that as soon as you sit down for meditation, you Iccha Shakti(will power), Jnana Shakti (Power to comprehend  divine wisdom) and Kriya Shakti (the power to act) are automatically triggered.  So if you persist in your sadhana, you will reap a rich harvest.
