  • The Kingdom of Heaven | New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Centre
    is science that has greatly contributed to the general feeling that Heaven is a place outside of ourselves Science has exercised its power on the conscious and subconscious planes of human thinking The twentieth century idea of Heaven in the West at any rate is leading mankind in the wrong direction in its conception of Heaven The Kingdom of Heaven is something that we can feel and not something that we can demonstrate Science can demonstrate many things But the Kingdom of Heaven is a matter of our own inner achievement If we have realised the Kingdom of Heaven within ourselves others will look at us and feel that we have something quite unusual unearthly and supernal Because we have seen and felt and possessed the Kingdom of Heaven within ourselves they will regard us as a totally transformed extraordinary being Needless to say it is our aspiration our mounting inner cry that leads us to this Kingdom of Heaven The Kingdom of Heaven is a plane full of Peace and Delight We feel it when we reside deep within ourselves and when we transcend our egocentric individual consciousness The higher we go beyond our limited consciousness the quicker we enter into our deepest infinite consciousness the more intimately we shall see feel and possess the Kingdom of Heaven within ourselves To be sure the Kingdom of Heaven is more than just a mere plane like other planes It is a plane of divine Consciousness It is a state of Realisation It embodies Sat Chit Ananda Sat is divine Existence Chit is divine Consciousness Ananda is divine Bliss When we go deep within we feel these three together and when we acquire the inner vision to perceive them all at once we live verily in the Kingdom of Heaven Otherwise

  • What is Yoga? | New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Centre
    What is Yoga Yoga is that which discloses God s secret If we wish to know God s secret we have to launch into the path of Yoga What is Yoga Yoga is the Breath of God If we wish to see through God s Eye and feel through His Heart if we wish to live in God s Dream and know God s Reality if we wish to possess the Breath of God and finally if we wish to become God Himself Yoga will beckon us Yoga is union It is the union of the individual soul with the Supreme Self Yoga is the spiritual science that teaches us how the Ultimate Reality can be realised in life itself What we have to do is accept life and fulfil the Divine in ourselves here on earth This can be effectuated only by transcending our human limitations Yoga tells us how far we have progressed in relation to God realisation It also tells us about our destined role in God s cosmic Drama The final word of Yoga is that each human soul is a divine representative of God on earth Now let us focus our attention on the practical aspect of Yoga There are various kinds of Yoga Karma Yoga the path of action Bhakti Yoga the path of love and devotion and Jnana Yoga the path of knowledge These three are considered to be the most important kinds of Yoga There are other significant types of Yoga but they are either branches of these three or types closely related to them These three serve as the three main gates to God s Palace If we want to see and feel God in the sweetest and most intimate way then we have to practise Bhakti Yoga If we want

  • Within us is our Goal | New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Centre
    My mind becomes restless What do you do then I asked Why I just think of the world Now tell me when you think of the world with all its activities can you even for a second think of God No never So my young friend is it not absurd that when you think of God restlessness takes your mind away from God but when you drink deep the pleasures of the world restlessness does not take your mind away and place it at the Feet of the Lord No this should never be If you have genuine hunger for spiritual food the same restlessness or what you may call uneasiness will take your mind speedily and dynamically and place it in your heart where it can drink the Nectar of divine Peace and Satisfaction To be sure your mind cannot do two things at a time If you are thinking of God with an implicit faith if the flame of aspiration is burning within your heart your outer restlessness monkey however mischievous it may be will not dare to touch you much less pinch or bite you You cannot look with full attention at both your shoulders at the same time Similarly when you clearly see your God within you cannot see the ignorance tiger of the outer world What we have to do first is to see the ego then touch and catch the ego and finally transform the ego In the spiritual life when the ego enters into us and bothers us we have to think of ourselves as the Brahman the One without a second and we have to feel ourselves as the all pervading Consciousness Then the ego disappears into nothingness We all know that the mind plays an important role in our outer life as well as in our spiritual life Therefore we must not discard the mind Rather what we should do is be always conscious of the mind The mind becomes restless but that does not mean that we have to punish it all the time If the master of the house comes to learn that his old servant has recently formed the habit of stealing he does not immediately dismiss the servant The servant s past sincerity and dedication are still fresh in his mind He waits and observes unnoticed and unconcerned feeling that his servant will turn over a new leaf In the meantime the servant becomes aware that his master has come to know of his misconduct and he stops stealing He goes one step further to please his master he works even more sincerely and devotedly than he did before Similarly when we become aware of the mind s restless activities and tricks we have to be silent for some time and observe the mind quite unconcerned Before long we shall see that our mind the thief will feel ashamed of its conduct We must not forget that during that time we have to think of ourselves as
