SHRI SHIVARUDRA BALAYOGI ANSWERS A DEVOTEE'S QUESTION CONCERNING STATEMENTS
SUPPOSEDLY MADE BY SHRI SWAMIJI, "IN BHAVA", AFTER HIS MAHASAMADHI, WHICH TOOK PLACE ON MARCH 28, 1994.
Namaste. I have read that in May, 1994, Shri Shivabalayogi is reported to have said the following:
"No, Swamiji did not want to go into Yoga Nidra. Swamiji wants to remain and be with his devotees. But Shankara Bhagavan does not want it so. You will come to know why Swamiji wants to remain with you on earth. You will come to know in 2002." What is happening in 2002? Does Shivarudra Balayogi know the answer?
Shri Swamiji attained Mahasamadhi on 28 March in 1994 and this is the Truth. When a Yogi drops the Physical Body and is One with the Ultimate Truth, the Divine, that is called "Attaining Mahasamadhi."
One doesn't understand what the devotee means when he writes that, "Shivabalayogi was interviewed in May, 1994." How and where? Well about "Yoganidra", there is misunderstanding and confusion amongst some devotees about this word "Yoganidra". When a person is doing Tapas, one is supposed to maintain the awareness of the Existence"Consciousness and experience the SELF. If one loses consciousness totally during Tapas, after progressing to an advanced stage, then such a person is defined as "Going into Yoganidra" and Tapas does not progress. So Swamiji "going into Yoganidra" is not true in any way. Yogi's do not have any resolutions whether to remain with the devotees or not. The Yogi is All Pervading and Divine in Nature of Existence. The Yogi does not have any desire to exist with the devotees on the Earth. By nature, The Yogi is All Pervading.
So much has happened in 2001, did anybody know? Once a thing happens people try to claim that they knew in advance. But what were these people doing when so much was happening? There is really no meaning for this statement about the year 2002. The Story of the Earth is the same. Dualities, Good/Bad, Right/Wrong, Tension and so on. Just sit down to Meditation and do not waste time in these meaningless things. It simply increases emotions. Try and know how you exist as an Immortal Soul. Pray to the Divine Guru for World Peace. When you live for yourself, it is Life. Try to live for others, it is Mission. Do you really love Swamiji? The only way to get in touch with Him is through your Mind by going introverted.
With love and blessings,
