The Cosmic Body XI : Wisdom Stimulus 96 : Bhagvad Gita in Self Management

One of the student, Vaibhav in the Training session on the Wiziq asked me .
Do you believe in God ?

I said “yes”.

He further asked me “ What is God “

Rather then using my own words I took a verse from Arjuna description Krishna cosmic form . Arjuna points out six essential aspect of Krishna’s cosmic form which is every way the most articulate form of God found anywhere.

1.He is without beginning , middle and end
2.He in infinite in power
3.He has endless arms.
4.Sun and moon are his eyes
5.The burning fire his mouth
6.The entire Universe his radiance

What a beautiful description, Arjuna made in the verse 19 of chapter 11 in Bhagvad Gita about the cosmic form of Lord Krishna . Simple yet broad, in its subtle message.

Infact all the other beings which has become united into Krishna’s cosmic body alongwith the other divine serpents.

The Cosmic Body ( Vishwarupa) VII: WS 91: Bhagvad Gita for Managing Self

When the ego drops, and the thoughts of the mind, dissolves then one experience, the splendor of thousand suns . It is the experience, when the mind reaches the sahasdara, which is the highest chakra of the human body. If the splendor of a thousand suns, were to blaze out at once (simultaneously) in the sky, that would be the splendor of that mighty Being (great soul) .

If we look at the modern discoveries quantum of mechanics, then we can see, that whole universe is nothing but spells of energy in an endless motion on following domains .

1.Physical domain – The Domain of sense mind – waking state
2.Qunatum Domain – The domain of energy – Dreaming state
3.Void Domain – The domain of nothingness – Deep sleep states

When we try to move through the experience . There are two stages of this experience

1.First stage is the Nirvana – The Consciousness of Nothingness
2.Second stage is the Cosmic consciousness

In the first level your ego is dropped, and as your ego is dropped you experience a thoughtless state, and from there you move to the next stage, and there you reach to cosmic consciousness .So when you move to the cosmic consciousness, you experience the thousand sun at a single moment, lightening your inner sky . Once this thousand sun, ligtens up, you start moving towards a unified consciousness which was mentioned by Sanjaya . In that unified consciousness, it seems that the whole universe is resting. That is exactly the form of cosmic vision shown to Arjuna by Lord Krishna.

The Cosmic Body ( Vishwarupa) VI : WS 90 : Bhagvad Gita for Managing Self

When a being reaches the consciousness of oneness, he expands on to different directions . The drop of mind and ego makes his the part of the infinite consciousness. Staying on the infinite consciousness, makes one to move out from the demarcation of direction. which one has made , and all the directions starts uniting in him. A Divine being emerges who have the garland ,like the physical universe.

It is when one reaches to the state of cosmic deep sleep, that he brings out the expression of the cosmic body, which is expanded around the entire universe and which is emerges as a resplendent being, which is endless . The metaphors are allegorical which is in fact explaining the movement towards the cosmic consciousness from the Individual conciousness . A movement from Pragna to Virat , Hiryangarbha and Iswara is described here in this entire chapter where consciousness of deep sleep, expands to the entire Universe .
