Rudra Within Rudra … Itself within Itself …

Three Bodhisattva's in the heart ... Three protector Bodhisattva or Three great protectors or Three protectors of a Buddha

In this part of the topic, we shall discuss the three protector Bodhisattva; i.e. Avalokiteshvara, Manjushri and Vajrapani, who have also been addressed as the “three great protectors” and also as “three protectors of Buddha” … And also discuss their relation to Vedic Trinity as stated in Puranic lore …

 

Kotirudra Samhita 7.15 of Shiva Purana states thus …

 

सर्वे रुद्रम भजनयेवा रुद्र: किंचिद भजेंनाहि स्वात्मा भक्तावातसलयाद भजत्येवा कदाचन

 

Translation:

Everyone worships Rudra but Rudra doesn’t worship anyone.

For the sake of devotees Rudra only meditates upon himself.

 

Above Mantra describes this topic and figure fully and that too in a way which is much better than below explanations …

So, with above as a base, I continue further …

Itself within Itself … Rudra Within Rudra … Inward Path … Atma Path …

The realization of what is depicted in this painting happened at a much later stage that the realization of Rudra Deva as was discussed in the current set of topics earlier … And yet I have added the current discussion here itself because it actually relates to the state of our current discussion only … This experience happened after “Raam Naad (or Sound of Ram) and the Eighth Chakra (or in other words, Ashtama Chakra) both of which shall be discussed in later topics were passed through and thus the current discussion definitely is not in line with the sequence of events (i.e. self-realizations) that were passed through by this little student in this particular transmigrated incarnation … Transmigrated incarnation means an incarnations that were arrived by adopting the path of transmigration of soul, which in Sanskrit language is called as Parkaya Pravesh and which in English is also loosely termed as Virgin Birth

Above is the painting which relates to one of the caves of heart (the state as is depicted in this painting is in the heart of each aspirant) …

In the state which is depicted in this painting, three evolved beings are sitting and they all are praying to the innermost essence (or Atman) of the aspirant (this is shown as an orange orb in above painting) whilst they all sit in Padmasana with their hands folded and their heads slightly bowed down in reverence …

These beings are surrounded by a Sookshma Kavach (Subtle-Shield) that is composed of hair like lights of red and yellow colors and these lighted rays which envelope above figure are revolving and rotating at a very-very fast speed so as to ensure an aspirant can only enter this cave of heart after that aspirant reaches a ripeness and rightness of evolutionary standing to do so … Thus during the entire history of the macrocosmic creation, not even a handful of aspirants have ever entered the state as is discussed in above figure …

 

This topic shall be discussed in brief and only relation to three aspects as are stated in below bullet points …

  • In relation to Inward path or Path of Rudra Deva (i.e. Vedic path) as is referred to in above Veda Mantra from Shiva Purana … Thus this shall be in relation to the original knowledge as was stated by the Vedic sages during those extremely ancient times of my previous incarnations that were arrived by the path of transmigration of soul (which in Sanskrit language is also termed as Parkaya Pravesh) and which itself are beyond the scopes of analysis by any of the modern methods of historians or archaeologists of now …
  • In relation to Buddhist Lore as was given by the Gurudeva of my previous incarnation whom this world reverently addresses as Gautama Buddha

So here it goes …

 

Three protector Bodhisattva or Three Great protectors …

Inward path is the path of self-realization or the path of a direct cognition of one’s own innermost essence (or Atman) … Within those ancient times when Vedas were the way of life of humanity, this path was originated stated as that of Atma Vijnana (i.e. Atma Vijyana or science of Atman) and was also addressed as Atma Jnana (i.e. the self-realized knowledge or the wisdom that is achieved through direct cognition’s of the reality) …

Basis above Mantra of Shiva Purana, since Rudra only meditates on himself, so the path which Rudra follows if none other than an inward path i.e. the path which leads to the innermost essence (or in other words, the Atman), is the “only path” of Rudra Deva only …

Thus basis above, in reality Rudra only walks that path which is based upon the essence of statement “Himself within Himself” and that too for the benefit of all his devotees … And since the entire humanity only worships Rudra Deva whom they address by different names and they also walk to the same Rudra through different paths, so this inward path which leads to one’s own innermost essence (i.e. Atman) also remains as the path of humanity of now, or ever …

Continuing with above paragraph … The same path of which originally was stated as Atma Vijnana and Atma Jnana by the very ancient Vedic sages, was also told as Vipassana by Gurudeva Buddha Avatar and the same was also referred to through Biblical statements like “the kingdom of God is within you” … And all these statements are related to the inward path of Rudra Deva only …

As such since Rudra only walks “ITself Within ITself”, so to know Rudra the path of any aspirant cannot be any other than that which is based within and upon the statement of “Myself Within Myself” …

This path of “Myself Within Myself (i.e. path of walking Swayam Hee Swayam Mei)” itself is the path which is based upon the innermost meaning of the statement “the Aspirant within the Aspirant” or in other words, the aspirant moving towards (or walking into) its own innermost essence (or Atman) so as to enter into a self-realization of the reality which is within the aspirant (i.e. the aspirants essence of Atman) and thence at a later stage, to self-realize the same real which is within the aspirant to be none other than that which is also the pervader of allness and her each part … Thus within this path, the aspirant self-realizes that its own innermost essence (i.e. Atman) itself is the essence of allness and her each part (I.e. Brahman) …

Rudra itself is the innermost essence (i.e. Atman) of each aspirant … And it is to this essence of an aspirant (i.e. Atman) which as such is shown as an orange orb and which itself is the Rudra within each aspirant, that the three beings who are depicted in above painting and who reside within the cave of heart of each aspirant, are meditating upon …

And since the innermost essence of each aspirant (i.e. Atman) itself is the innermost essence of “allness and her each part (i.e. Paramatman)” and also since the innermost essence of any aspirant itself is none other than Rudra Deva within that aspirant, so it is due to this reason that Rudra has also been told to be the essence of each aspirant (i.e. Atman) which itself is the essence of allness and her each part i.e. Rudra itself the Absolute-Being (or Parabrahman or Shiva) as per the Vedas …

And since the Absolute being is omnipresent (i.e. present within and around all that is begun within the Maker’s Makings … And beyond the Maker’s Makings), so the Absolute-being also holds no individuality and thus, when within the self-realization of what is discussed and painted here, the path is only found to be absent of all I’ness (Ahamkara or Ahumkara), Am’ness (i.e. Asmita), Is’ness (i.e. Sarvata) and Not’ness (i.e. Shunyata) and thus at this stage thus there also is no My’ness (Mamta) … This is what the self-realization of above figure is also depicting …

Thus at the stage which is discussed in above paragraph due to absence of factors which are listed in above paragraph, Rudra is only found to be walking “Itself within Itself” … And the same is also arrived by any aspirant who reaches the stage of realization of this and all preceding paragraphs of this topic …

Thus in such a stage as is described in above paragraph, the aspirant is like “Rudra Within Rudra (Rudra Hee, Rudra Mei)” … This itself is the same as walking “Itself Within Itself (i.e. the path of Brahm Hee, Brahm Mei) … Or in other words, the aspirant qualifies to exit out of the earlier path of “Myself Within Myself” and thence enters into the path of “ITself Within ITself (I.e. Rudra Within Rudra and which we have earlier termed as, Brahm Hee, Brahm Mei) ” …

Thus this figure also depicts the stage where the aspirant arrives at ripeness and rightness of evolutionary standing as is required to enter into last and final partless partless path which itself leads to the essence of the Vedas (i.e. Brahman or Paramshiva) whose direct self-expression is Rudra Deva and that too as the Atman of the aspirant …

It is to this Atman that the three divine beings who are shown in above painting have eternally been meditating upon and whilst these three rest within the cave of heart of that and every other aspirant and where these three have also been thus since the eternity of time spans when the Maker had originally commenced the genius of IT’s own Makings …

 

Now we shall describe the painting in a little bit more detail …

After a few days from completion of transit through the Raam Naad (i.e. sound of Raam) which itself is the “Taraka Mantra (i.e. sound of Raam is the liberating Mantra)” of my Paramguru Ishta Devata Bhagwan Shiva, the heart region as shown in above painting was entered into …

This state has a highly luminous and yet extremely subtle gem like orange colored orb, with three subtle beings sitting there and worshiping that orange orb (or Rudra who itself is the innermost essence or Atman within each aspirant) …

 

Proceeding further …

In above painting I have painted these three inner beings as if they are sitting in a lotus posture (i.e. Padmasana) with the hands on their thighs, but in reality their hands are folded in the front of heart … But this is due to lack of painting skills and not for any other reason …

Threes three inner beings are of the following characteristics …

  • One of these three beings is of red colored (head color is red in color) …
  • Another one is of a yellow color (head color is yellow in color) …
  • And the other one has a blue color (head color is blue) …

And this entire state where these three beings reside in the heart is surrounded by a yellow-orangish red envelope which is made of fine hair like rays of light where these colors of yellow and orange-red are fused to each other (i.e. rays of yellow and orangish red are intertwined to each other) … These rays of yellow and orangish-red are like a dense envelope around the three beingness’s and the orange orb as is shown in above figure … And these lights are also rotating and revolving extremely fast …

I (i.e. the observing vehicle within me) saw the state for a while and also saw these three beings were in a deep state of meditation as they silently kept worshiping that orb of orange color which was present within the heart region of the physical vehicle …

And after a while, I also sat with these three inner beings and started meditating upon Rudra Deva, who itself was self-realized as my own innermost essence (i.e. my own Atman) to whom these three inner beings (as shown in above painting) were also meditating …

This inner meditation continued for a while and thence without disturbing these three inner beings, I (i.e. the subtler observer within me) approached the orange inner orb of Rudra within me, I merged to that orange orb immediately (i.e. the subtler observer within me ended up arriving at a non-duality with it) …

After this state, the individuality of my observing vehicle (i.e. the subtle vehicle which was self-realizing at this stage) to the orange orb vanished was no longer existent … Thus was arrived the stage of walking in the essence of the statement “Rudra Within Rudra” as was discussed earlier in this topic and has been stated as walking “ITself Within ITself” …

 

Three protectors of Buddha … Avalokiteshvara, Manjushri and Vajrapani and their relation to Vedic Trinity

Later on I also found that these three were the three primary Bodhisattva’s of Buddhism, who also begin acting as protectors of any aspirant who has arrived at the stage as is discussed here and is also termed as a complete Buddhahood (i.e. Sam-Sam Buddha or a teaching Buddha or simply, the state of Buddhata) within the Buddhist lore … And also a fact that these three inner beings also continue to act as protectors of that perfect Buddha (i.e. Sam Sam Buddha or a teaching Buddha) until that Sam-Sam Buddha stays within his (or her) physically incarnated state …

But at the same time, in above figure I have not correctly painted their correct placements in relation to each other (as this is also a knowledge which shall have to be had by all aspirants through a direct cognition only) …

Within the Buddhist lore’s, these three inner-beings who have been addressed as the three protector Bodhisattva’s of a Sam Sam Buddha have been addressed as follows …

  • Red colored is Avalokiteshvara … He is the holder of Param-Karuna (supreme compassion), Param-Prem (selfless-Love) and Param-Mamta (motherly affection) of all the perfect Buddha’s that ever were during any of the three times …
  • Blue one is Vajrapani … He is the holder of all powers of all the perfect Buddha’s that ever were during any of the three times …
  • Yellow one is Manjushri … He is the holder of all the knowledge of all the perfect Buddha’s that ever were during any of the three times …

 

And if I compare these characteristics to the Vedic Puranic Lore, then these three are as follows …

  • Red colored is denoting divinity of Pitamah Brahma Ji who also happens to be my Pitamah Gurudeva (i.e. the Grandfather Guru) of the current and all earlier transmigrated incarnations … He is the creator deity within the Puranic Vedic lore …
  • Blue colored one is denoting the divinity of Bhagwan Shiva who also happens to be my Paramguru (i.e. the Supreme Guru) of the current and all earlier transmigrated incarnations … He is the rejuvenating deity within the Puranic Vedic lore …
  • And yellow colored one is denoting the divinity of Sri Bhagwan Vishnu (Sriman Naaraayana) who also happens to be my Sanatan Gurudeva (i.e. the Eternal Guide) of the current and all earlier transmigrated incarnations … He is the preserving deity within the Puranic Vedic lore …

And the same colors also are of the three main subtle channels (Ida,  Sushumna and Pingala Naadi) which are present near the spinal column and they rise from base of spine and then enter into the cave of heart as is depicted in above painting … Thus from the spine till the heart these three inner main subtler channels (i.e. Ida Naadi, Pingala Naadi and Sushumna Naadi) are of these three colors only and yet when these same channels are observed above the heart region, then their characteristics are not the same as they have been told here (This is a discussion of a much later topic, so I won’t be getting into it here) …

These three inner beings only become visible within the heart region and that too at a location where the 100 subtler sub-channels (subtler nerves) which are an intrinsic part of the central channel (i.e. Sushumna Naadi in the spinal column) and which rise from the base of spine and terminate in the heart are meeting the vast non-lighted and thus the empty skies as are present within the heart area of each aspirant … The seeded-sounds (i.e. seed syllables of Beeja Mantras) of these 100 channels are also referred to in the “100 seed syllable verse” of Tibetan Buddhist lore’s and thus I can safely say that Tibetan Buddhism is a correct path to self realization of the state of our discussion …

 

Deviating a bit to discuss an experience … In fact prior the realization of this figure happened, I used to hear a Samskrit sound which when translated from Sanskrit to English means “Go To Tibet” … So I thought at the time, Tibet is already occupied and thus what use would it be to go there and thus I started looking around to find a monastery around my place only …

This sound was in those years when I was very-very sick as the Kundalini Shakti (i.e. the inner serpentine fire as is stated in western lore’s) has gotten severely deviated in its path of travel inside the physical vehicle (and the paths of travel inner divinities which also happens inside the subtle vehicle) and thus the troubles which were being experienced at those times can also be stated as being continuously hammered by a supernatural and thus beyond force … These troubles continued for almost 11 months and this sound of “Go To Tibet” used to be heard during early morning times during those days …

But I went to a few Buddhist monasteries, these people after studying me, they only started asking about my experiences on email (so I dint share these details with anyone now … Even when these monasteries said that they would assist, but the assistance never came during the months that followed after meeting them … And once after a few months when I contacted that monastery, I was told on the SMS “I am so sorry, I did not get back to you” …

This was the time when I realized the correctness of a much earlier statement of my eternal guide (Sriman Naaraayana) who resides within the cave of emptiness of heart and when he had thus said to me (i.e. his little student) …

“Each beingness and entity has always had to walk the last pathless-partless path alone” …

Above statement of my eternal Guide also means to “walk in isolation from allness and her each part” and where her each part also includes these monastic sects of today and their so called teachers or Lama’s …

Thus I decided to totally restrict my evolutionary walk to the statement of “Myself within Myself” and only after this stage was the self-realization of above figure arrived at … Thus I can very surely say that the guidance that was given by my eternal guide (i.e. Sri Bhagwan Vishnu) who also resides within the cave of heart of each aspirant, was absolutely correct …

I shall be discussing that email in a later topic so the future aspirants who pass through the self-realizations of this text don’t end up waiting for someone else to assist them and they also know the words of my eternal guide (I.e. Sriman Naaraayana) where he had said that you only need to walk within the essence of the words of my eternal guide who had rightly told “Each beingness and entity has always had to walk the last pathless-partless path alone” …

And thus don’t waste your time with these highly-materialistic businessmen who strangely call themselves as teachers of today i.e. those who teach renunciation etc., even when they themselves are not so in letter and spirit … And this paragraph is not just applicable to a few sects, it in fact is an almost universally applicable one as of now … Just walk within this statement of my eternal guide after the experiences that have been discussed here and in later topics begin happening to you and things would start falling back in place … Gradually …

 

Resuming again … Thus only after an evolutionary standing where the 100 seed syllable verse is evolved past, does one enter into the realization that is being discussed here … This is because prior to this stage of evolution of going past the 100 sub-channels, all of which are intrinsic parts of the central channel (Sushumna Naadi) does the orange colored orb as is shown in above painting does not even show up to an aspirants heart … The heart is the area where these 100 sub-channels which make the central channel (i.e. Sushumna Naadi) get terminated and that termination point is where the non-lighted state of emptiness that also is within the aspirant, is realized … It is at the termination point of these 100 sub-channels that above figure is self-realized and thus above figure is realized only after transiting and evolving beyond the 100 seed syllable verse of Tibetan Buddhism …

From the heart rises a single highly luminous channel which goes till the top of brain where the 7th plexus is there (i.e. it enters into the thousand petalled lotus or Brahmarandra Chakra or Sahasrara of Yoga Tantra) and the same channel also goes beyond the 7th (i.e. into the Eighth Chakra) … But this discussion is not a part of the current one and thus it would be taken at a later stage of this text …

This state of an orange colored orb within one’s own heart region and that too with these three beings worshiping it, gives a strange feeling initially … This feeling is “how did these three get inside my heart area and since when have these been meditating on my own Atman (i.e. my innermost essence)” …

And then out of curiosity of knowing allness and her each part, which always is in any true aspirant I (i.e. the aspirants subtler vehicle that had entered into the heart) the subtler vehicle went closer to see these three beings properly so as to analyze the reason for them sitting with their folded hands and also know why were all of them facing that very subtle yet brightly lit up orange orb during their meditations within the cave of heart (i.e. my cave of heart) …

After these three were studied, I (i.e. the subtler vehicle who had entered the heart) began meditating with them … And at a later stage, that same subtler vehicle got up and went closer to the orange gem like orb so as to study it also …

As soon as this study of the orange colored orb commenced, then since the orange orb itself is Rudra Deva who is eternally present within each aspirants cave of heart, so the subtler vehicle just ended up merging to the orange orb itself … This led to a stage where the subtler observing vehicle (i.e. which had entered into a non-dual union to the orange colored orb or “Rudra within”) began walking within the statement “Rudra Within Rudra” as was discussed earlier on in this topic …

This further led to the stage of self-manifestation of the colorless, attributeless, aspectless, vibrationless, neither dimensional nor dimensionless supreme-accomplishment vehicle (or Siddha Sharira) which is not restricted to anything as it was of infinite expanses, even when it is present within the physical vehicle itself (i.e. the expanses of this colorless accomplishment vehicle are found to be extending till infinity that is beyond the limited dimensional expanses of the aspirants physical vehicle) … So, this self-realization also denotes the stage which is just prior entering into Kaivalya Moksha and which has been stated in a Mahavakya of Atharvaveda, which is told in Sanskrit language as “Ayam Atma Brahma” which as such means, “This (Atman) is supreme (Brahm)” and the same has also been stated as Shivohum, which has also be stated as “I Am Shiva (Absolute-being)” in some texts of Sanatan Dharma

The very fact that these three are meditating upon the innermost essence of a Buddha is a proof of the fact that unless you walk the inward path that leads to your own innermost essence (i.e. your own Atman) you can never reach the Gantavya (i.e. Kaivalya or Moksha or the stage of a final liberation due to a full and permanent isolation from allness and her each part) …

Above itself is in line with a statement that was given by Vedic sages during those fathomless ancient times of my earlier incarnation, where it was stated thus …

“Those who leave the pristine jewel which is within them and begin running after external aspects, have always ended up with broken pieces of mere glasses” …

Above statement also refers to the need of “meditating on your own Atman and thus it also denotes the path of Atma Upasana, which itself leads to the path of entering into Atma Vijyana (science of soul) and Atma Jnana (self-realized knowledge of soul) …

Atma Upasana means meditating upon your own innermost reality (or innermost essence or Atman) so as to enter into a direct cognition of your own innermost essence (or Atman) … Within the Vedic lore this path is also stated as that of Atma Vijyana (i.e. Atma Vijnana) and Atma Jnana (i.e. Atma Gyan) … The same Atman is Rudra within each aspirant and this is what is shown as the range orb in above painting and it eventually is to the orange orb (or Rudra as the aspirants Atman) that these three inner beings (or three Bodhisattva) are meditating …

 

Continuing from where we had left earlier …

After sitting down with these three inner beings (three Bodhisattva’s) and meditating upon the orange colored orb (i.e. Atman), the subtler vehicle left that place because it’s not a good thing to disturb the meditation of anyone especially because these three had proved their due diligence in their actions which neither had words, nor had any movements and neither were they having any other apparent signs other than their desire to know the same real which was known by this little student who writes this text … Thus this also proved their due diligence with respect to their steadiness on the “path to self-realization and realization of allness (i.e. Atma Path and Brahm Path respectively)” …

And only after this realization, I (i.e. the subtle observing vehicle within my own microcosm) left meditations on the orange colored orb (or above painting) and went close to that range orb so as to observe it and thence immediately and spontaneously entered into a non dual union to it (orange orb) which in turn led to earlier stated self realization that was termed as “Rudra Within Rudra” …

May each of these three inner beings know that who is addressed as Brahmand, Atman and Brahman in Vedas and that too by realizing their own intrinsic-eternal union to IT (i.e. the supreme being) and IT’s pristine macrocosmic Its’ness (i.e. Brahmand or Maker’s Makings) through their own diverse paths of self-realization (Atma Jnana) …

And may all true aspirants of now and any future also attain that supreme pathless-partless abode which itself is within them and has been discussed here and whose path has been told as walking within the innermost meaning of the statement of “Rudra Within Rudra”, which itself is the same as walking within the innermost essence of the statement “Itself within Itself (i.e. Brahm Hee, Brahm Mei)” and which is never arrived at prior the aspirant walks through the path of “Myself Within Myself (i.e. Swayam Hee, Swayam Mei)” …

Thus is clarified the meaning of Veda-Mantra (from Shiva Purana) that was written at the beginning part of this topic …

 

That’s all for this topic …

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.
