Hell Really Exists
Ignorance is the productive field of all them that follow whether they are dormant attenuated overpowered or expanded
Impressions are the cause of these, and these impressions exist in different degrees. There are the dormant. You often hear the expression innocent as a baby, yet in the baby may be the state of a demon or of a god which will come out by and by. In the Yogi these impressions, the Samskaras left by past actions, are attenuated that is, in a very fine state, and he can control them, and not allow them to become
Theroot being there the fruition comes in the form of species life and expression of pleasure and pain
The roots, the causes, the Samskaras being there, they again manifest, and form the effects. The cause dying down becomes the effect, and the effect becomes more subtle, and becomes the cause of the next effect. The tree bears a seed, and becomes the cause of the next tree, and so on. All our works now, are the effects of past Samskaras. Again, these Samskaras become the cause of future actions, and thus we go on. So this aphorism says that the cause being there, the fruit must come, in the form of species one will be a man, another an angel, another an animal, another a demon. Then there are different effects in life one man lives fifty years, another a hundred, and another dies in two years, and never attains maturity all these differences in life are regulated by these past actions. One man is born, as it were, for pleasure if he buries himself in a forest pleasure will follow him there. Another man, wherever he goes, pain follows him, everything becomes painful. It is all the...
That house is a miserable place, veritable hell on earth wherein the husband moves up in spirituality and the wife pulls him down in sensual grooves and vice versa. They should be harmoniously blended or joined by the thread of the knowledge of the Self, each aspiring eagerly for attaining God-consciousness. That house is really a Vaikuntha where the husband and wife lead an ideal Divine Life, singing Hari's Name, repeating His Mantra 200 Malas daily, studying the Ramayana and the Bhagavata, controlling the Indriyas and serving Bhaktas and Sannyasins.
Feeling the strong impulse to get up and do something. You have been trained and habituated since birth to be doing something. Persevere and these tendencies will subside. Gradually you will overcome your habitual tendency to lose yourself in an everlasting stream of outside activities and pursuits. Slowly but surely, you will confront yourself, your inner drives and eventually arrive at a deeper understanding of your incredible, real nature. But first you must confront your subconscious problems. You must first cross the river, and perhaps get wet before you reach the other side. You must first of all pass through, experience and expel your mental problems, before you can know peace, joy and knowledge. You have to pass through hell before you can reach heaven.
Our ashram is situated in a most unlikely place it seems on initial consideration, to be very badly located. It lies between a railway line and a dusty road. It appears to be caught between 'the devil and the deep blue sea'. Throughout the day the road is very busy, for it is the main road to the River Ganges. It is on this road that the dead are taken to the river for cremation. This is done in a noisy procession, accompanied by a fanfare of drums and trumpets and other clanging instruments. There is continuous noise around the ashram and visitors often comment that the location is most unsuitable. They have concepts and visions of an ashram in the middle of a forest, with thousands of peacocks and other brightly coloured singing birds, running streams of crystal clear water, herds of deer, and perhaps Lord Shiva himself meditating under a tree. Their preconceived ideas are destroyed when they first see our ashram, but it is more than a certainty that the location is perfectly...
Men are beginning to feel each other's pains--they find themselves unsatisfied by the old rule of every man for himself, and the devil take the hindmost --it used to content the successful, but now it doesn't seem to be so satisfying. The man on top is becoming lonesome, and dissatisfied, and discontented--his success seems to appall him, in some mysterious manner. And the man underneath feels stirring within himself strange longings and desires, and dissatisfaction. And new frictions are arising, and new and startling ideas are being suddenly advanced, supported and opposed.
Why do we continually tend to relive the past, or project into the future with anticipation of events to come The answer is basically simple - escapism and attachment to intoxicating experiences. Because we' are dissatisfied, we try to escape by re-experiencing high points of happiness in the past and by anticipating possible high experiences in the future. For example, we feel depressed on a quiet Sunday afternoon, the result of inner disturbances, perhaps in response to outer events. What better way is there to escape this depression, at least to some degree, than by imagining you are eating a hot, delicious dinner, or that you are with an old girl friend or boy friend This living out ofthe present is the easiest way to escape discontentment. Yet it does not lead to deeper happiness and certainly not to higher states of awareness. Most people are in a continuous dream state. They think that they are awake, but they are in fact, sleepwalking. They are not living their life as it...

The Devas and Rishis implored Lord Shiva to save them from the wicked demon Tarakasura and his brothers who had conquered Heaven and were terrorizing the three worlds. They had boons that they could be destroyed only by a son of Lord Shiva Himself. As the Great Lord was not married, this presented a difficulty, and the Devas and Rishis went to great lengths to arrange His marriage to Shri Parvat . Eventually the wedding was performed but due to His Yogic powers, Lord Shiva remained immersed in the bliss of union for a thousand years while Tarak wreaked havoc in the world. Finally Shri Agni, the god of fire, was chosen to disturb the Lord and remind Him of the need for a saviour.
Is hell making you tremble. there is always something beyond which now seems impossible but is more likely to be unthinkable. Some people call it joy, others bliss, still others spiritual knowledge and so many other insufficient names. So you too should walk through the haze of meaningless-ness, persevere, and transcend the problems that make life, as it seems now, hell on earth. Actually, many people come to yoga because they have some deep-rooted problem that they want to remove. If they did not know that they had problems, or that something was lacking in their life, they would never have started yoga there would be no incentive. From this initial introduction come many other things that they did not dream of, beyond their present comprehension. So, in fact, mental problems, though they may be the block to higher awareness, are also the stimulus that make people want to remove them and which eventually lead many people to spiritual life. Without some form of mental problems, no one...
Circulated various charts in his Theosophical Practice illustrating the different chakras. Hell is depicted as being in the region of the mooladhara chakra that is the normal low awareness level.

After Orpheus lost his beloved Eurydice, he courageously travelled into the underworld and wrestled her from Hades (god of the underworld), only to lose her again at the last moment. As he sat defeated under the elm tree, he took up his harp and played such an enchanting song of unutterable grief and despair that all the woodland animals gathered around him, and even the wind held its breath.
This is also a sign of your spiritual upheaval. You will not repeat now the same actions. Your mind will tremble. Your body will quiver whenever a wrong thought of some evil action urges you to do the same act through force of habit. Continue your meditation with full vigour and earnestness. All memories of evil actions, all evil thoughts, all evil promptings of Satan, will die by themselves. You will be established in perfect purity and peace.
Probably the most powerful method of balancing ida and pingala is kriya yoga. The individual techniques are carefully arranged so that they bring ida and pingala into balance. In the first kriyas great care is taken to keep the awareness balanced between the internal realm of the mind and the external realm of the material world. The first kriyas are primarily concerned with fixing awareness between the devil and the deep blue sea, the razor's edge between extroversion on the one hand and introversion on the other hand. This will be more fully explained in Book III when we outline in detail the different kriya practices and their effects on the body and mind.
The power of fluctuation is itself the mind. This fluctuating mind alone is this world. The mind becomes no mind if fluctuation disappears. The mind ceases to exist, if it becomes destitute of this fluctuation. What is called Maya is this fluctuating potency of the mind. Mind does havocs through the power of fluctuation. Fluctuation is Mara or Satan or Vasana or Eshana or Trishna. It was this fluctuation that tempted Visvamitra. It is this fluctuation that brings about the downfall of a struggling aspirant. Destroy this fluctuation through strong Viveka, constant meditation and ceaseless Brahma-Vichara.

This is the level of awareness that is symbolized by the Biblical story of Adam and Eve after they ate the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden. That is, their 'fall' occurred when they lost contact with the deeper core of their being, when they became selfish and totally lost in the world of objects. The Garden of Eden represents the world. It can either be experienced as a heaven or hell it depends entirely on the level of harmony, understanding and awareness. Before Adam and Eve ate the first fruit of the tree of good and evil, they were in a heavenly state, in the higher chakras or sahasrara after taking the forbidden fruit, they descended to tbe level of mundane experience and perception. The Garden of Eden did not change - the world remained the same - but their relationship, their understanding and their identification completely changed. And this story is try ing to tell each and every person something very important that the world can either be a place of bliss or a place of...
Life is continuously changing. Karma is continuously changing. All these situations as described above may change within a few years or even suddenly within hours or even minutes and thus completely change your life. Everything is changing faster now than during the centuries before and will speed up even more in times to come. Start to learn a life style that does free you from any Karma. A lifestyle that supports your learning and practicing pure divine Love more and more. To learn to Love is much easier in a peaceful and loving environment. There is no need to go through hell just because you once started some fight with someone, and can't stop it, or immediately dissolve it in Love. Just refrain from fighting by moving into a more peaceful environment, by choosing some new friends and neighbors, another nation to live in, and you may easily start loving more and more intensely until you succeed, until you become a being of Love - angel like.

My friends and teammates think I made a deal with the devil. But it was yoga that made my training complete.
The leaves of the Venus' Fly-trap fold upon each other and enclose the insect which is attracted by the sweet juice on the leaf, three extremely sensitive bristles or hairs giving the plant notice that the insect is touching them. A recent writer gives the following description of a peculiar plant. He says On the shores of Lake Nicaragua is to be found an uncanny product of the vegetable kingdom known among the natives by the expressive name of 'the Devil's Noose.' Dunstan, the naturalist, discovered it long ago while wandering on the shores of the lake. Attracted by the cries of pain and terror from his dog, he found the animal held by black sticky bands which had chafed the skin to bleeding point. These bands were branches of a newly-discovered carnivorous plant which had been aptly named the 'land octopus.' The branches are flexible, black, polished and without leaves, and secrete a viscid fluid.
A decade ago, there was considerable wariness in America's juvenile justice system about offering foreign-seeming yoga to its teenage residents. Soren Gordhamer, founder of the Lineage Project, an award-winning nonprofit that offers yoga in juvenile halls in New York City, began teaching inside youth prisons in 1997. With no funding, he and the other volunteer instructors supplied all the sticky mats and left the Sanskrit terminology at the prison's front door, calling the hour of hat ha yoga and meditation an inner martial arts class.

Just remember your very own fantasies in past years or decades, your fantasies after watching TV for example. Many persons are having aggressive and destructive fantasies, killing or raping others and much more. Similar to the thoughts, these energies are a heavy burden for your Karma and your Aura. How many people are wishing others to hell, or similar wishes. Just in their mind and fantasy. But the emotions involved are destructive for your spiritual development and progress as well as for your physical health. Such thoughts and fantasies also are destructive to any partnership and family life or social life within a community. The stories you read, the movies you watch, may turn on your fantasies and occupy your emotional body with destructive energies such as the scenery from the story you were watching or reading.
Tamas is a quality of delusion, obscurity, inertia and ignorance. A person in whom it predominates is inert and plunged in a state of torpor. The quality of sattva leads towards the divine and tamas towards the demonic, while in between these two stands rajas. He that is born with demonic tendencies is deceitful, insolent and conceited. He is full of wrath, cruelty and ignorance. In such people there is neither purity, nor right conduct, nor truth. They gratify their passions. Bewildered by numerous desires, caught in the web of delusion, these addicts of sensual pleasures fall into hell.

Throughout all times and cultures the willow has been connected to the feminine, the moon, and the element of water in all its forms. Many of the goddesses of the ancient world resided in sacred willows or willow groves. For the Sumerians, for example, this goddess was Belili, who ruled the moon, love, sexuality, and the underworld, and was worshipped where there were willows, springs and wells. In classical Greece the willow was dedicated to Persephone, goddess of the underworld, and Kirke, who weaves and sings at the navel of the world.
