The Cosmic Body ( Vishwarupa) IV :Wisdom Stimulus - 88:: Bhagvad Gita for Self Management

No fleshy eye can behold the cosmic form of Lord Krishna .. One can see the cosmic form of Lord Krishna through the eye of intuition, or the divine eye. It, should not be confused, with seeing through the physical eye, or through the mind. It is an inner divine experience, attained through intense devotion and concentration.

The Virat , and the Hiryangrabha and the Iswara, they all has to be seen by the eye of intuition. This makes us move from the lower strata of mind, to the higher strata of mind . In the lower strata of the mind , the sense mind operates . To see the cosmic form or the cosmic vision, from the sense mind is impossible. We have to move from the sense mind to the vital mind, and then from vital mind to the mental mind , and then from the mental mind to Intellectual mind, and from the Intellectual mind, one has to move further to the intuitive mind . From the intuitive mind , one has to move further to higher mind, and from there one has to even take a journey further to the overmind .

Overmind is able to give you a cosmic vision, where you can see oneness of this universe . When, we see the world by sense mind we refer to what we see by the two eyes, we have . if someone has to see has to see the divine vision , he has to open the third eye . The third eye which is called as “Gyana chaksu “ helps you to see the divine vision .

This knowledge eye also helps to see the divine form . This three personalities of Virat – Cosmic Body, and Hiryangarbha – The Cosmic dreamer and Iswara – the cosmic deep sleeper can only be seen when one has Gyana Chaksu open . Then, you can travel from the sense mind, to the overmental consciousness.

Wish to see the Divine Form : Wisdom Stimulus 84 : Bhagvad Gita for Managing Self

Arjuna asked Lord Krishna, to show the form of his imperishable self in the chapter on yoga of vision of cosmic form. Now, we have to ask, that what is this Divine Form, before we can understand the deeper significance of this request ?. It is also interesting to note that Lord Krishna, mentions on a verse little ahead , that it requires a different eye to see this divine form . It, is just because our ordinary sense organ, is not fit to see this divine form . As our ordinary sense organs works on a psychological conditioning.

This psychological conditioning makes us to see the truth of world in different way . That’s why the first step to see the cosmic form is to practice yoga . Yoga would purify the mind, and remove the psychological conditioning. It, would help to expand the consciousness. As our consciousness expands, we will build the capability, to move from the sphere of the mind , to the domain which is beyond mind which work on different rules of times and space, and which holds the originating principle of this physical world which is absorbed in Oneness . However to get into there plane one has to have the very pure intent, to start with . In this chapter, we find Arjuna, expressing that intent, to Lord Krishna.

Greatness of Soul : WS 83 :Yoga of vision of cosmic form

There are three important approaches towards the growth of soul

1.Shaivate ( the transformative) approach
2.Vishnuaite ( the stabliilty) approach
3.Shakti ( the creativity) approach

Shaivate approach ( Transformative )

1.Takes consciousness as the root of the world
2.Changes in the consciousness is the way to transform world
3.There approach is inside-out

Vishnuaite approach ( Stability)

1.It is balance between inner and outer realities
2.Both inner and outer change has to be balanced , systematic
And process oriented

Shakti approach ( Creative )

1.Innovation and Creativity
2.Outer reality builds the opportunity of innovation which further changes the inner reality .
3.External oriented less emphasis in inner
4.It is an ideal outside-in approach

Each of this path, could lead to the understanding, of the greatness of Soul . Shakti approach is close to karma yoga and expressing one’s creativity , and shiva approach is close to gyana yoga which is founded on the base of attaining wisdom. In vishnuite approach finds love in centre which has both knowledge and action . People of different temperaments take different paths to reach the same goal of recognizing the greatness of soul..

By these ways , the greatness of soul is recognized, as one now can understand the creation , stability and transformation along with its workings.
