The Amar mantra, "Ohanga sohang sat Charan, yugala roopanga tvam namaami" was given to us by PARAMGURU SHREEMAT KARUNASAGAR. The Amar mantra is the strongest mantra in the entire world. this mantra has a significant meaning and a significant connection with our body, our brain and our respiratory system.
What does this mantra mean ?
when we say the Amar mantra we are doing two things; number 1, we are hosting our heads to kaival karta number 2, we are acknowledging how we are an 'ANSHA' of kaival karta.
"I bow my head and pray to the creator and the controller of the universe the 'ANSHi' (kaival karta)'
: WHO AM I ? :
when we say the Amar mantra, we are saying I am an ' ansha' of kaival karta. as an 'ansha'of kaival karta I am saying...
I, the controller of the body(the ANSHA), who is a part of kaival karta (the ANSHI) keeps this body alive with the help of Sohanga- Pranavs (breathing system). I, the eternal ANSHA, am devoid of mind, intellect, consciousness, egoism, and senses, and as such, I bow my head and pray to kaival karta(the ANSHI).
The ANSHA has DIVINE energy. This divine energy makes the 'Ohanga and Sohanga' (internal controls) act and keep the body alive, active, and allow it to work. The divine energy of the ANSHA allows the 'Sohanga-Pranava' (breathing system) to be active and allows the Body to stay alive.
: WHAT DOES THIS ALL MEAN ? :
We have two nostrils, right(pinphaal) and left(inghala). At any given time, our body is only using one airway at one time. However, by doing a certain YOGA breathing technique (Anulom-Vilom) we can open up both of our nostrils(Nasses). When both nostrils(naaadees) are open, the third Nasses opens up (Sukshma Nasses) and we are in a complete tranquil State of mind ('ANSHA' Tatva') Our mind is completely peaceful and detached from wordly problems; our only focus is Kaival karta. when this happens our internal systems begins changing the Amar mantra automatically. the Amar mantra is in perfect such with our breathing system. as we breath in we say, "Ohanga Sohanga Sat Charana". AS we breath out we say,"Yugala roopanga tvam thanami." According to paramguru, we should do at least one Amar Mantra mara a day this mantra can help us focus and connect to paramguru and ultimately karta.
his divine grace paramguru shreemat KARUNASAGAR MAHARAJSHREE has explained the meaning of the bhal Tilak In two of his Granths; aghadh bodh and Pancham Sukshma ved. Paramguru has used science and biology in both of these Granths to explain many traditions (like the bhal Tilak) and phenomenon we see around us everyday.The bhal Tilak is a symbol of Jyoti(flame) of a burning candle.when the Pranavs (breathing) flows through with uniformity from both pinghala and inghala naadees(right and left nostrils),the third Naadee in the middle (Sukshma Naadee) opens up and at that time, the person is in a complete tranquil State completely dedicated to kaival karta. when these pinghala and inghala naadees meet the Sukshma naadees it forms a symbol like a Jyoti (flame) of a burning candle and it forms a bhal Tilak on the middle of the forehead. the bhal Tilak is made up of kanku (inside) and Chandan(outside). Chandan represent surataa and nurataa (both meaning steady and deep concentration of the mind). Behind the upper point of the bhal Tilak, the Brahma Randhra' (cerebral cortex) is situated and this is the place where the ANSHA RESIDES. the bhal Tilak connects us directly to Karta.
Bhal Tilak and bhajan kaival kaa, jam high Kula nahi dad Amala kaa;
Tilak bhal Anubhav ehee Neeranu, Mahima Atul gati Kaahaa mama Baranu.(Pancham Sukshma ved)
paramguru shreemat KARUNASAGAR MAHARAJ has written this choosing (hymn) in. the Pancham Sukshma ved. he is saying, a person who does the bhal Tilak and kaival bhajan doesn't read yama(the Devta of death). the importance and greatness of these things are indescribable.
