Body & Invoking Presence of Amma Bhagavan

About the Body & Invoking the Presence of Almighty in the sacred heart of Self.

Remember we are a Divine Self going through a Human Experience. The Body that has been given to us is sheltering the Sacred Soul of ours, which is eternal. That is why your body is also Sacred. This world is a place for us to practice and realize about ourselves and cause of our existence in order to be able to merge completely with the Almighty and that is why the land on which we stand is also so Sacred. So, internally we must pay a lot of respect to our Body and the Land i.e. Mother Earth. Many Saints before and now have said that our body is temporary and thus never taught us to pay respect. Our body is a perfect Church /Pagoda/Temple, where the Divine is sheltering. When we were conceived by our mother, she took food like rice, bread, carrot, beats, and many vegetables that came from mother earth. By this food only our body was shaped, we grew slowly in her womb. It all happened because these fruits, vegetables, paddies were grown!! Coz, they were planted by some farmers; these plants were to be watered, some worked hard to fetch water and some depended on Lord to shower the rain. How did our mother receive milk to drink and give us when we were small? Some had firms, some milked these cows. Is not it true? Thus our body is a precious gift to us and for this the entire planet has worked through the services of so many people known and unknown to us. Our body is not temporary either. Our body too was always there in the form of vegetable, milk, carrot, fish and etc, after we leave this planet, our body would continue to be there. Our body would be buried, it would become compost and provide fertilizer to grow vegetation, some mother would eat and again one more body would get formed sheltering a new Divine Soul. So our body too is eternal. So our body is Sacred that is housing the Sacred Soul of ours. Now feel very Sacred about your body and yourself. Our Soul is now sleeping by the sinful nature of Human. We have gone away from our Divine Creator causing all sorts of Problems to us. Let us invoke it.

For invoking the presence of Divine (When we say invoke, it means awakening, as Divine is always present in our heart) please say the following powerful words

***Aum Sat-chit-ananda Parabramha Purushotama Paramatma,

Sri Bhagavati Sametha, Sri Bhagavate Namah!!!***

We, invoke the power in Cosmos, the Supreme Power, who Exist, who is Supreme Intelligent and whose aspect is Endless Joy and who exist everywhere on this planet and beyond the visible Universe, who have incarnated as Amma Bhagavan, who live in our heart as our Indweller and are yet beyond collective human consciousness in our heart and awaken the Presence of Amma Bhagavan now and here.

Contemplative Questions

Here is a set of questions that would provoke you and put you through some soul searching. They are not about religion nor about ethics. They are merely about you.

They are not meant to serve as solutions nor are they meant to lead you anywhere. These questions are meant to serve as tools to discovering yourself.

1) Do you perceive the Presence of a benevolent force guiding, protecting and shaping your life? What name do you give that Presence? When did you best feel this Presence?

2) What is your opinion of God? Is your opinion drawn from religion, books, parents and or your personal experience of life?

3) Do you pray? Do they get answered? How often?

4) Do you think it is possible to relate to the Divine? What relationship would you opt?

5) Here is a story for you - Two fierce enemies once did a penance to placate god and receive boons vying with each other. God appeared to the first man and asked what he wanted. He said "give me twice of whatever you give my enemy". Then God appeared to the second one. Even before God could say anything he asked, "God, would you please tell me what my enemy asked for? On knowing his prayer request, he said, "then God, blind me in one eye."
Now what would you wish for yourself, your best friend and your worst enemy if God gave you a chance?

6) Have you ever experienced a coincidence or chance that seems to have involved so many people and factors that you can't stop wondering if a mastermind was behind this operation? If yes, do you savour the experience often and have you shared it with someone close to you?
