Aghora and Ahumkara

Ahumkara (or Ahamkara) is also self realzied through Aghora face of Sadashiva … This is as Ahumkara (or Ahamkara) is also a part of Aghora face, which would be discussed here … The painted sketch of earlier topic of “Path of Ahum Naad” is also applicable to this one …

 

Ahumkara and Aghora

FF … In this topic we shall discuss the relationship of Aghora and Ahumkara …

The sound of the painted state (or Aghora) is “Aaaaaa-Hum…Aaaaaaa-Hum…endlessly” and the same was also told as Ahumkara in Yogic texts (Ahumkara or Ahamkara literally means “Cause of I’ness”) … Thus irrespective of what anybody may say after reading this, Ahumkara of Yoga itself is the Aghora of Shaiva (i.e. worshippers of Bhagwan Shiva) …

 

Importance of Ahamkara

Without Ahumkara (i.e. the aspirants I’ness) there cannot ever be any self-realization because of the fact that to self-realize anything, the presence I’ness of the realizer is paramount … This is because of the fact that when the “I of the aspirant” itself goes missing, then who would self-realize is the big question …

And yet after the aspirant has self-realized all that is to be self-realized, the same I and its I’ness is let go of by that same aspirant itself … This is because the reason for presence of I’ness is evolved over after a self-realization is arrived at by any aspirant …

It was due to this reason that ancient texts state that I’ness (Ahumkara) is not required because the self-realized sages who has told so, had only told so after they had already known all that is to be ever known through a direct cognition (i.e. self-realization) … But prior to this stage, I’ness (or Ahamkara) is ever needed because without I’ness the stage of self-realization cannot ever be arrived at by any aspirant … This is because I’ness itself is a blessing of the Maker unto each microcosm (i.e. each aspirant) so the aspirants could eventually self-realize and then let go of that I’ness so as to enter into Kaivalya Moksha (which means liberation due to a full and permanent isolation from allness and her each part, all of which are based upon the same I’ness only) …

 

Three types of Ahamkara 

But the I’ness (Ahumkara or Ahamkara) is also of three types as stated below …

  • Inertial I’ness … Tamasic Ahumkara … This is of Tamoguna … This is the blue colored light which was shown in the earlier painting (of Aghora face of Sadashiva) …
  • Actional I’ness … Rajsic Ahumkara … This is of Rajoguna … This is the red colored light which was shown in the earlier painting (of Aghora face of Sadashiva) …
  • Neutral I’ness … Sattvic Ahumkara (or Satvik Ahamkara) … This is of Sattvaguna … This is the white colored light which was shown in the earlier painting (of Aghora face of Sadashiva) …

 

Let go of Ahumkara after self realization

And after a self-realization is arrived at by any aspirant, then all of these types of Ahumkara (i.e. three types of I’ness) are let go of by that aspirant … Thus because these three are let go off after whatever was to be known during the course of one’s almost eternal evolutionary existence, so the ancient sages had told to let go of I’ness …

But above statement was never meant to be applicable to those aspirants who have still not entered into their self-realizations because without the presence of the aspirants innermost I’ness, the further stage of self realization can never be arrived at by an aspirant …

Above is because of the fact that it eventually is the “I’ness which is within” an aspirant, that becomes the path to self realize the “I-within” that same aspirant and eventually self realize the innermost essence (i.e. Atman) which as such is totally free of “I and its I’ness” …

That’s all …

Irrespective of what may be apparent to any aspirant of now or ever, within the current transmigrated incarnation I remain as a little student of the Absolute.
