On this day, we start a new series of posts on this website, excerpts from the Conversations with the Master series by a Polish ascetic. We choose to post these excepts for we find the unique inner signature of the Divine in these conversations.
Today, we read about three ancient Masters of Yoga, residing in a hidden cave, and radiating the energy of Love to all on Earth, and even, beyond the Earth. Our Polish ascetic travels to the cave and experiences a blessing from the masters. We may also do the same.
One evening I was studying Paul Brunton‘s book A Search in Secret India. Brunton gives accounts of unusual events in this book, events he was part of during his visit to India. All of a sudden I realised that all manifestations and miraculous events are certain energetic processes and as such they require a reservoir (or reservoirs) of special energy. Since there is an effect – there must be a cause. This was my scientific mind at work. So many unusual events have happened in India, and this land has been famous for the life and activity of many saints. This means that there must be a source, emitting spiritual energy. And if so, it must be possible to connect to it, because there is no such a thing as separation in the world of energy.
Often in my life I have observed and experienced inflows of energy, which were an outcome of thinking about somebody or something. Such ability is a natural side effect of meditation. However, let me get to the point. I decided to carry out a little experiment. I would get into state of meditation, calm my mind down and try to connect to this centre of energy (as I named it for the time being).
I did it as I planned. While I was falling into deeper and deeper silence, I thought ‘Master, I will be counting from ten down to one; let the connection be established, please”.
Ten, nine, eight… … three… two … one…
Nothing happened for a moment. I remained in silence and darkness. Yet, after a while the pictures started coming. I saw that I was inside some sort of huge cavern. There was a large quantity of rubble blocking the entrance. Here and there I saw dampness flowing down the tall walls making paths with dark trails.
I turned around, my back to the entrance and almost shouted with amazement. The cave became wider and ended at a vertical wall some ten steps away. At the bottom of the wall I noticed three human beings, three sages sitting in the lotus posture. The one in the middle sat on a raised platform. All three gave the impression of being very, very old. Long gray hair and beards reached down to legs joined in the lotus posture. Their wrinkled faces bespoke their age so clearly. Yet, there was an incredible aura emitting from them, as if warmth, devotion, and love were coming from a great depth, flowing through these people out to the world. Strangely, they were not exhibiting any sign of life. Only when I strained my inner eye, did I notice something that looked like a weak light inside them, indicating that they were still alive.
I turned to the Master asking for an explanation of what I was witnessing. After a while I heard His quiet voice.
Later, I was wondering who would be the next Messenger that Master mentioned. But He kept silent. Alone, I was not able to find an answer other than that given by religions about the Second Coming of Jesus in Christianity, the Messiah in Judaism, the Maitreya in Buddhism and the Kalki Avatar in Hinduism. It was only years later that I fully understood who the Master was talking about, when I learned about the unusual miracles accompanying the life of the Avatar of our times – Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba.
Master, what is this energy needed for?
I bowed to their feet and said: “Great Masters, I thank you for your help and sacrifice. Bless me please.”
There was no movement. After some time I felt pins and needles in the top of my head; this gradually turned into a grip. A few minutes later I started feeling hot energy slowly flowing down and sort of burning something on its way. You might compare it to a liquid, a honey, slowly moving down the brain-stem, lower and lower. After reaching the chest (the heart area) the phenomenon faded away. I felt everything quite clearly. It lasted for more than an hour and a half. The next day I asked dear Master for this ‘connection’ again and immediately, an impression of flaming energy slowly flowing down came. This time it lasted for about fifteen minutes.
Today, I asked Master for a comment on this whole episode.
Master, what ‘rule’ do you mean?
I will ask them for love for You, can I?
Master, I have one more question.
Is this idea proper, the idea about the existence of one centre, which causes or powers all processes with spiritual energy in India?
