The facebook inspired race hatred Anglo-Saxon with support from their fascists mainland European counterparts are still following me on their social media sites and ran another run in my local high street to see my reaction prior to an attack. This time I informed the police who I understand took decisive action. I thank the UK police for that. I am still capturing the faces of the individuals involved and will begin to post them online as race-hate fascists.

Conjecture, Contemplation, Meditation – their differences

Meditation has become a go-to for those seeking refuge from stress, anxiety, emotional turmoil and anger. The term is strewn around like confetti. Its ubiquity masks the complete lack of understanding of what it is and mean. People speak about meditation as if it were a portal into a magical state of consciousness, into which they need only dip a toe in order to access calm, balance and a lower blood pressure. Nowadays everyone is an expert on this thing called meditation, whose value is measured in its empirical impact on their lives. 

Listening to all the noise generated about meditation I reflect that ignorance, in this case, is not bliss. It is time to put a stop to the petty commercialization around it and to the idea that it is a bar snack one reaches out for and grabs while having a drink. The fact is there is no ‘meditation’ in the sense in which it is mindlessly thought about, pontificated about and supposedly practiced. Meditation is not a one size fits all panacea to life’s stresses and strains. And it certainly can’t be self-taught. One doesn’t simply practice meditation. You enter it only after years of intensive training under exacting supervision by a higher being. These beings don’t go around getting certificated to ‘teach’ meditation and they don’t hold classes. 

Furthermore, one only enters the realm of meditation via contemplation, which in turn is entered via conjecture.

Conjecture is the environment where your thoughts come to debate. Thoughts don’t exist in the realm of meditation, contrary to what you are told. That whole thing about watching your thoughts come and go is nonsense. Only in conjecture are there thoughts and even then you don’t watch them float by. Rather, you evaluate them, choose between them, selecting a thought that will yield the best possible outcome for you. Being with our thoughts is part of everyday life, a default setting that allows us to navigate our daily concerns and realities. 

Not convinced?

Think of a candle. Picture it in your mind. Is there just one candle, or two, three, even four? Is/Are the candle(s) lit? In which direction do/does the flame(s) flicker? Do they all flicker in the same direction? What is the backdrop to all this? Now, open your eyes slowly. Has the image vanished? If yes, then start all over again. For those who retained the image you must now register the sounds around you. Your attention is divided, yes, between the image of the candle(s) and your sensory environment? Can you keep hold of the image now, or is it going slowly out of focus, dissolving? If yes, then I’m afraid you have to start all over again. For those who can retain the candle image while heeding the sounds around themselves, you now have to also pay attention to the flow of thoughts registering their presence, and be able to sift through them and evaluate their significance and worth. Can’t do it? Then it’s back to the beginning. If you have managed all of this, you now have to additionally focus on the sound of the candle(s) flickering flames. If you can’t identify and differentiate them, start all over again. 

This is what is passed off as meditation. It is, in fact, the realm of conjecture. 

Conjecture is difficult to master, let alone transcend. Western dabblers in eastern mysticism – lacking the humiliation, humility and humbleness that is to be their life’s constant state – think that a few sessions of so-called practice is enough to return home with and set up a class. In those classes, they extract cash from wealthy wannabes who want to enter the portal of calmness, and who mimic their conceit that a bit of practice and a certificate equips them to guide others and save the world. 

An analogous situation is found in yoga: Money-grabbing, get-rich-quick individuals are teaching yoga. But it isn’t your ordinary yoga. No. It is kundalini yoga. The same kundalini yoga that is traditionally never taught to all and sundry but is passed only from high being to disciple. The yoga being taught at a class near you is standard everyday yoga, but calling it so doesn’t generate wealth; it has to be sexed up – hence, kundalini yoga. And the primary exporter of all this was the person who knew nought about yoga and managed to dupe millions – none other than Yogi Harbhajan Singh. 

Meditation as ‘taught’ and ‘learned’ today reflects what we see happening to yoga. Its all about liars selling lies to suckers who lap up being lied to. 

Reverting…

If what is widely and falsely acknowledged as meditation is in fact conjecture – as I illustrated above using the example of the candle(s) – then what is the transition pathway from conjecture to meditation proper? Well, it is a pathway that stops at the realm of contemplation first. And I am not going to share with you the process or details of the pathway. 

I will, however, give you a tantalizing insight. 

You’ll recall the exercise with the candle(s) that forms part of the realm of activity in conjecture. Well, one aspect of the realm of contemplation requires you to look at the candle(s) and listen to the noise that each flame makes while immersing yourself in music of your choice, watching a television programme with alertness and interest, paying attention to the outside world and its sounds and goings-on all, all while maintaining perfect posture. 

(I re-introduced a lotus position a few decades ago without sharing the exact positioning involved. I note that students use the same posture, though their execution of it is wrong. In fact, I re-introduced three postures several decades ago that are now in vogue and which are practiced widely but imprecisely – for the same reason, that I didn’t share the minutiae of how to practice them. Indeed, every single posture has its own deep history, context, meaning and purpose. Without comprehensive understanding of all of this, a posture is rendered meaningless and is thus incapable of delivering the full latent energy contained within. Lacking knowledge and clarity, a posture is reduced to an acrobatic exercise.)

Reverting…

Contemplation is a state defined by your ability to focus on only progressive dharmic principles, one at a time, and merge into the essence of that environment without falling out of sync with the organic surrounding world. This indicates you are graced.

Intense training is required to enter the realm of contemplation and unless a high being graces your journey then it is impossible to not be overwhelmed by anger, arrogance, vanity and thoughts of revenge.

Once contemplation is achieved and sustained permanently, many adherents will be selected to have their bio-structure altered so they are reborn as docile fauna or long-living flora. (It is an extremely misleading and ego-based concept to believe that humans are the highest order of creation on this planet.) Here they wait, until instructed to be reborn as human and help dictate human events.

First conjecture, and then contemplation have to studied in-depth. It takes several lifetimes of continuous and committed study to realise the vastness of the subjects and to make progress. 

Given that each human birth comes after several thousands of years of taking birth as a non-human, the chance you will recall a lesson learned in a previous human life is well-nigh impossible. Unless you have been graced by a higher being. 

Having said that, there are two bodily organs that are critical in aiding one’s pathway from conjecture to contemplation and thence meditation. The first is the skin – more precisely, it’s pigment. Caucasian skin is a regressive and abnormal pigment, a serious anti-meditation organ. It is the portal through which lower, restricted, ungraced bio-forms enter the human birth chain; and the pigment which those people, who have fallen from their high statuses, are given as a reprimand. Darker skin pigments are progressive. They give one the ability to absorb meditation-energy more easily. The other organ paramount in helping one enter meditation is hair – specifically, the retention of one’s bodily hair. Hair has a special and divine purpose, albeit that many consider body hair unfashionable and even disgusting.

Now, you might be wondering who – given the stringent conditions for progression – actually make the cut 

Amongst Caucasians the likes of Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Pythagoras, Master Eckhart, Ludwig Feuerbach and Nietzsche have reached the higher echelons of conjecture as evidenced by the body of thought they produced. 

In the east, Adi Shankara, Sri Aurobindo, Swami Vivekananda and Rabindranath Tagore have progressed further, attaining the middle stratum of contemplation. But none of them merged into meditation. 

Escape from the pain, misery and darkness of rebirth – where one is always the victim of circumstances – comes only after one has endured and does not react at all. Such humility eventually (though not always) evolves into humbleness. Mastering humbleness is critical to accessing higher strata within conjecture (as did the Caucasians mentioned earlier) and contemplation (as per the eastern personages mentioned earlier), and eventually meditation. 

Certainly, out of the public gaze there walk among us those with deeper (progressive) skin pigment who have attained and remain within the realm of meditation – and who have thence advanced into samadhi even. They are accompanied by the grace of higher beings. And they walk silently and with humbleness among us. 

So, I would say, put your money away and stop lining the pockets of meditation-charlatans. You cannot learn to meditate. All you can claim to be doing is attempting to achieve a higher state of conjecture than the one we naturally inhabit everyday and to achieve a more stable bio-rhythm. Unfortunately and inaccurately this is all termed ‘meditation’ when it frankly is not.

That said, I do commend you if you are tying to make some progress, even if your terminology is wrong and your sense of achievement is more imagined than real. For, only by attempting to progress can you open yourself to the opportunity to actually progress. Just don’t call what you do meditation!

How Power of Calmness Leaves Death in its Wake

I ask the newbies, as was asked of me at the start of my study-development: What is the most powerful energy in duality? Remember, Beings from duality cannot experience non-duality; and nor has that arena been described by lower-order advanced Beings who have journeyed into it and beyond, because three-dimensional duality has very limited speech-expression-phases.

Thus the question, limited to duality, is: What is the most powerful energy in creation?

I recall hesitating in answering, as I listened to others offer the reasoning behind their thoughts on this question. Their answers fluctuated from the atom bomb, to volcanoes, to the Big Bang. I dismissed the Big Bang as it is just a theory, and not real. I waited and pondered further, and His Holiness smiled as he listened to the various answers and counter-arguments made by others, occasionally glancing over at me. They all followed the theme that the most powerful, potent, and virile energy had to be destructive. I intuitively knew this could not be the case, as it ran counter to everything I knew and accepted about creation. Eventually I was put on the spot, and at that point, I was analytically clueless. But in a flash my thought had reasoned things out and I blurted out my answer: calmness.

The group laughed and shook their heads, which left the floor open for me to expand on my reasoning. I explained that regardless of how powerful an explosion is it is enveloped in calmness. Calmness overwhelms it. Calmness reigns supreme, regardless of the size of the explosion. An explosion has to succumb to the enveloping calmness. Thus, I am convinced that calmness is the most potent, virile, and powerful energy in creation. Counter-arguments followed. Somebody mentioned peace and others agreed.

Peace, I maintained, through lengthy and logical argument, is just the path to calmness. Peace has a ying-yang nature, calmness does not. Peace will only take one up to a certain point. Thereafter, the sole path into calmness is abject humbleness. Calmness is poise: unerring, immovable, constant. It is not inertia, which we discussed and dismissed in favour of Soun (the highest abode championed by Buddhaji). But it is also not Soun. 

Soun is recognition of the point where sound, the unstruck melody, ceases – or as the Sikhs’ Guru Nanakdevji proves, where it is sourced. But Guru Nanakdevji went one step further than Buddhaji. He maintained there was a higher state than Soun (unstruck melody), an entity/presence which he called not simply Akaal but Akaal Purakh to reflect it as an entity-environment. Out of this higher state, maintained Guru Nanakdevji, emerged another – hue, luminosity, light – beyond the unstruck melody of Soun (referred to by the pre-Sanskrit term Satnam) – which he called Waheguru (similarly pre-Sanskrit in origin).

(Note: Neither Waheguru nor Satnam can be experienced as ordinary sound and light.)

We all looked over at His Holiness; his demeanor had changed and in his reflective thought he nodded his agreement to my answer.

Several months later, I had made a mess of an assignment and expected a rollicking by His Holiness. He remained silent. I sought permission to speak. In dharma, the etiquette in dealing with one’s seniors is that you always seek permission before speaking, even when answering a question they have put to you. This environment, dharma, is full of subtle observation and delicate nuances, and we can tell an advanced student by the internal manner and external behaviour with which he conducts himself.      

Permission given, I extended an apology and asked why I had thus far not received the requisite rollicking from his Holiness. 

A brief silence followed, then very quietly his Holiness asked: ‘Do you know the meaning of the word Ang?’

‘Permission to speak?’ He gave a gentle nod. ‘It means one’s own, like a limb of a body, no demarcation or division: oneness’. 

‘That is what you are to us. You do not recognise it yet, but you are part of the continuum, and as such you will wield enormous influence and power; however, it is for you to decide where your progress stops. And if you wish later to go beyond that point we will not aid, assist, or help. The journey is unforgiving, fraught with nightmares, personal suffering and loss. There is no easy way to ascend the path, and as you progress you will recognise that you have trodden aspects of the path in each of your previous incarnations, going further each time. However, the opportunity on offer here has never been granted to you before, so you must consider your options carefully before you decide to accept the invitation’.

Having spoken, his Holiness warned me that the offer could also be a ruse to thwart my progress attained over many incarnations, and lead me into sophisticated devil worship and hell. Secular people do not realise that the difference between god and the devil is zero, but for their methodology: to cut corners or not. We, at our level, still have to be mindful who is guiding us. But at the secular level, god and devil are one and the same, and cannot be identified or separated. ‘Yes, you have made a mistake’, His Holiness continued, ‘but you will learn from it. In this cycle the most difficult punishment for what you have done is the following: henceforth, whether right or wrong in your decision, you will always be right’. He looked over to me and asked, ‘Do you understand what this means?’

It meant that I could do all the evil imaginable and would be absolved of my heinous deeds in the immediate term. But the repercussions would reverberate through each of my  incarnations, dragging me back to the animal, maybe even the plant, kingdoms without an end to the downward spiral of negativity. The punishment for always being right was that severe.

And thereafter, before venturing an opinion, I thoroughly examined, scrutinised, analysed and censored beforehand, lest it be wrong or evil. With time, the process got faster, and I was able to offer a balanced view quicker. I could anticipate problems long before others could, and I was able to set in motion a sequence of events that would bear fruit decades into the future without anybody knowing. Another limitation on my capacity to commit wrong was that unlike others – who could deliver a painful strike at a moment’s notice – I had to refer the problem to those higher up the scale and await their decision.

So I mastered patience and, through that, humbleness, whereas others became champions of haughtiness and arrogance.

Then 1988 happened and brought with it death and destruction, as a whole new set of sequences took shape around me at a personal level.  

This essay focuses on how those who targeted me suffered. Revenge may indeed be a dish best served cold; but when we at our level defend against a blow or strike the repercussions of the assault against us reverberates through generations of our assailants’ and their family’s lives. Initially, the attacker’s mental and physical health declines (often written off as age related), but the decay is stealthy and long term. Only the very lucky ones die relatively quickly, or immediately. 

On the other hand, those who extend kindness towards me will flourish and enjoy great success. One person recently has become a main supplier to two major retail outlets, all because he extended kindness to us. The health of those who have treated my sister or me with kindness has always stabilised. Children are born to the desperate, if they have treated us both with thoughtfulness, consideration and kindness. It is not a matter of putting me on a pedestal, a position I really hate. Just be kind, caring, humorous and normal; and, certainly, don’t be duplicitous.

In 1988 a husband  and wife team connected with the Rotary Club (UK), called upon its members who were in policing and banking to help twist the knife into me. They succeeded. But only now that I have spoken about the situation have they begun to realise that their intense suffering was the direct consequence of targeting me.  

There are a number of examples of the self-inflicted suffering of the English who have set out to harm, and even kill, me.

1. A Sikh gentleman ran a car parts business and would arrange for my car to be serviced locally, mostly via English owned garages. He had a male English staff member who always kept an eye on me, and acted as liaison between the garages and the gentleman from the Rotary club. 

During one incident the garage put the brake pads of one wheel the wrong way around. The car would not brake properly. I took it back for inspection, and the garage told me all was fine, and that I must be imagining the problem. But the wheel would heat and the brake would lock at the slightest touch of the brake paddle. I had to carry a gallon of water to pour over the wheel to cool it down, thus enabling the car to move, but even then I had to be very careful about how and when I used the brakes. I began to drive with greater care.

One day at a local roundabout I flicked the brake paddle in order to control the car’s forward roll, intending to accelerate to catch the large gap between a passing car and a slower truck following it. The brake ceased, I could not move and the truck was forced to take evasive action to miss me. Sister and I missed death by inches. 

I poured water on the wheel, releasing the car’s movement, and I drove back home to call the English man. He answered and I let him have it with both barrels. Responding in typical English fashion when talking to an Asian, he shouted back, and accused me of taking the wheel off and repositioning the brake pads the wrong way around after I had left the garage. I was livid. My sister’s life had been put in jeopardy, and we both could have died but for the grace of god; and this man was blaming me?!

I slammed the phone down and invoked higher Beings (that’s prayers to the uninitiated) to adjudicate in the matter. 

One clear day about a week later, the Englishman’s sister was on her morning commute on a long clear stretch of road when she rammed her car into an oncoming truck. She died immediately. A few days later, while watching evening television a member of his family began flailing his arms about and shouting, in an attempt to ward off an attack that only he could see; he too died. I am told there was also a third death in the family.

The English man never looked me in the eye again after that. He knew that I only need you to look into my eyes momentarily, and I have access to you. Those were the days when I was still mastering my career. Now, you can be living in another country, totally unknown to me, and if you mess with me then rest assured I will mess with you and yours. 

2. The security apparatus in the UK at one time placed me in the most difficult and painful position. My sister was distraught and traumatized, and we went through hell. The matter took several months to resolve. The repercussion of our suffering was that four members of the security community killed themselves, and one killed his own family before taking his life. Furthermore, a number of security personnel were brought before court on various charges. 

3. In relation to my victimisation by the UK security apparatus, I approached my then local MP, plus the person who would replace them as my MP, as well as another MP who was head of a powerful government committee detailed with maintaining oversight and authority over the security community. Both my local MPs repeatedly dismissed me while the latter refused to even acknowledge my letters. My then local MP and their spouse both suffered career-ending humiliation followed by death; and the person who chaired the powerful government committee now lives in professional disgrace. 

4. Likewise, a media mogul who I approached about my victimisation several times rebuffed me repeatedly and invited me to go back to my own country. He died in humiliation having lost his wealth, name, and fame in the process.

5. The then newly appointed head of the official race relations body in the UK, a Sikh, was initially supportive when I approached him about the victimisation and we exchanged information. He later changed his mind and began mocking me. He too went on to suffer humiliation.

6. The attack need not be directed towards me personally. I am honour-bound to protect and defend the weak, defenseless and vulnerable in society and their right to dignified life – even the racists and fascists among them. So when successive Home Secretaries, and Secretaries for Department of Work and Pensions have needlessly targeted the jobless and the homeless, they have naturally attracted my displeasure. Consequently they have left their jobs in disgrace, experiencing a multiple of professional and personal problems.

 7. And just so that you don’t feel alone, watch what happens to my current MP, who took copious notes about the mess the state security had put my family through before she got elected, and afterwards said, ‘Sorry who are you? What notes? I do not recall ever having spoken to you’. Watch that MP and their family members’ lives unravel. The same goes for the local council personnel, local ward councillor, and the leader of my local council who masterminded yet another distressful situation for my sister.

Reverting..

After more than seven years of daily relentless attacks, which have traumatised my family, with us never knowing when or where the next security-led problem would occur, I called in the senior most Being. I announced that I wanted out, as I could no longer handle the pressure, especially without the ability to hit back at my own discretion. He looked at me and said, ‘We have been watching you. No one has managed even eighteen months of the pressure you have handled these past seven years. Ask for what you want; you have earned it’. 

‘It is for you to give’, I replied, ‘for you alone are privy to my future. All I know is that I need to be able to defend my sister and myself, and hit back as and when I feel it appropriate. If that means I halt my own progress then so be it. I’ve had enough’.

He closed his eyes momentarily and with that he granted me access to whatever I needed to deal with a situation. Additionally, I was promoted and informed that my views would carry absolute influence at our level. In other words, I had been given a seat at the high table, even though I operate at the level of a fieldworker.

I have had input on some of the most important global and geo-political changes that Europe has seen, and my input has been globally valued. My and my sister’s deaths, and the manner of these, will bring in their wake the dismantling and destruction of the race-European empire.

The seniors agreed with my concern that the pillage and plunder of deep earth minerals and resources cannot go on unabated. The race responsible has to be culled. You have thoroughly race-hated me, but I am not allowed to hit you back along race-hate lines, so, I found another way to get back. And it seems I am going to have the last laugh, albeit this will happen in one of my next incarnations, but it will happen.

 

Sikh Turban, Women & Dasam Granth

The turban of old signified authority, supreme evolved thought, balanced judicial judgment, chivalry, integrity, gallantry, graciousness, politeness, honesty, and deference to higher authority and thought.

In the same way that the system of female global leadership, supported by male life-partners, fell into disarray, so the prestige of the turban fell from grace… until the Sikh elite (the Khalsa) was formed and made to bear secular responsibility.

Following the last evolutionary realignment, seers and sants were unequivocally instructed to shed their aloof dispositions, and instead live their lives of advanced awareness while also fully participating in the secular world, lest their spiritual progress be permanently stopped. This strata of the secular sant is embodied in the Khalsa – the elite of advanced awakening.

The first five Khalsa were beheaded. They lay prone, until Guriji fused together heads and bodies (not in their original configurations, it should be noted) and administered amrit, produced and infused with female energy via Mataji. The beheaded came back to life. But they were not yet invested with the ethical responsibility required of them and that was to be part of their hyphenated secular-spiritual existence moving forward.

The investiture of secular roles and responsibilities for the Khalsa came in the form of the five articles of faith. The first of these, unshorn hair, signifies creation, which is protected and celebrated by the five-metre long male turban and the three-metre long female chunni. The male turban and the female chunni are therefore one and the same.

The turban signals to others that the wearer is ready to defend and protect the weak and oppressed; and women need only wear the turban if no men are available to carry out their responsibility, and only in a context of war and hand-to-hand combat.

For a woman to wear a turban outside of these conditions is an insult to men; it questions the latter’s capacity to fulfill their secular responsibility and it casts aspersions on their valour.

‘Educated’ Sikhs, however, have argued that the turban may be worn by women as well as men. Indeed, they positively demand this ‘freedom’, stating that Guruji instructs the very same. Their claim refers to a poem written by one of the Gurujis. Now, poems as we know are full of metaphor and allegory. They are artistic productions in which poets – like the particular Guruji noted here, who wrote fluently in five languages – take liberties with language to produce certain lyrical and rhythmic effects. And when rendering this in multiple languages… well, we all know the innate untranslatability of words across different languages… then the task becomes one of reaching for a sense and meaning that fits with that language.

So, those who call upon the particular poem in question here to support their claim and ‘right’ for females to wear the male turban, and who see in the poem an injunction to do so, in fact see nothing of the poem beyond their own imperfect interpretation – itself a dynamic product of their individual, social, cultural, political and ideological milieu. To fully know the poem, they really ought in fact to master poetry and the five languages in which Guruji wrote – leaving their own literal reading of the poem, which reflects nothing more than their own desires, at the door.

An important point here: the poem is attributed to a particular Guruji despite being penned in a language whose vocabulary and syntax made use of diacritical marks that post-date the Guruji. This along with several individual theses, pothis and books was eventually brought together into a single volume in 1890. This volume is the Dasam Granth. It contains Jaap Sahibji and Benti Chaupeeji – both of which are inaccurately attributed to Guru Gobind Singhji. These poems (for they are not banis) were subsequently integrated into morning and evening Sikh prayers – confusing and needlessly so.

The alleged poetry by Guru Gobind Singhji forms part of the Dasam Granth and sits side by side with poetry that embellishes eroticism, including BESTIALITY, along with five extremely erotic practices written in detailed pornographic terms alongside mantric and tantric material (which would include kundalini yoga). The entire volume appeals neatly to those within Hinduism who are on the cusp of leaving it in dissatisfaction, and who are mesmerised by the pure subjective Sikhism of Sri Guru Granth Sahibji. And in this volume, long hair or a full untrimmed beard is not a prerequisite; however, ‘keski’ the smaller under-turban, is sanctioned. Based on this misinterpretation contained in Dasam Granth indication is apparently given to wear a turban as one of the five Ks instead of hair – or so it is argued by the likes of the Akhand Kirtani Jatha amongst others. In that case, bestiality is also acceptable, is it?

It is a red herring to assume that the term ‘Dasam’ invokes Guru Gobind Singhji’s authorship of the material contained therein. Sikhs have been thrown, and erroneously shepherded, into this assumption because the word is associated with the number 10, and of course Guru Gobind Singhji was the tenth Guruji. Not wishing to dishonour the elaborate work of Dasam Granth, the Sikh hierarchy gave the publication respect, as they would any other scripture. This accommodation then became the platform for the dissatisfied exiting Hindus into Sikhism to argue in favour of the alleged poems of Guru Gobind Singhji to be formally included into the mainstream Sikh prayers.

One has to consider the period in which this took place. Sikhs had faced an almost total wipeout, with more than forty percent of its population killed during two encounters against an overwhelming army. Thus, any new recruits into Sikhism were positively welcomed, and they held sway. It was a pivotal moment, therefore, when compromises were made including acknowledging the alleged poem – that is the crux of the argument by those favouring female turban-wearing – by Guru Gobind Singhji as a formal bani. In the case of Jaap Sahibji and Benti Chaupeeji, once these attained bani status their integration into formal morning and evening prayers was a mere formality. Unfortunately, until Sikh authority does not officially rescind the Dasam Granth banis to their original status as poetry, their controversial use and attribution remains.

Reverting….

The second point: the saddest part is loyalty to a thought, and inability to give up a cherished ideal, such as that of the under-turban as the formal arbiter of Sikh identity.

Additionally, why, I ask (up to this moment in time), are Sikh women using a literal (mis)reading of a poem to configure their self-worth around the right to wear the turban in place of the chunni, or even – as is happening – underneath it? Why adopt a form of purdah whose removal Guru Nanakdevji was pivotal in championing along with other freedoms and respect for women?

Guru Nanakdevji successfully championed the thought that only a free and trusted woman was capable of giving birth to a child born into freedom of thought and freedom from a slave mentality. Indeed, only with a woman’s permission could a child, especially a boy, be born. He maintained that women, of all races, ought to be responsible for their own sexuality and sense of sexual integrity. He impressed upon Sikhs that men had possessions, and women belongings; and that no man possessed the women in his life, but that they belonged to these women.

Guru Nanakdevji impressed about Sikhs that man is answerable to woman, not the other way around. It may often look like women take a back seat in public and let men run the show; but in Sikhism, ultimate authority lies with women.

So, why, I ask as a Gursikh who takes pride in dressing as chicly as possible, do exquisitely beautiful Sikh women feel the need to emulate men, and forego their natural beauty as women?

The very purdah that Guru Nanakdevji fought to bring you out of, you are now throwing back in his face. You are hell-bent on assuming the Muslim woman’s head-to-toe covering – yet, the Sikh fought to free women in India from slavery and from the religious injunctions of successive empires. Now, living in a free land, you chuck the valour and deaths of your ancestors back into their faces.

In times to come, medical procedures will make surgically attached fully-functioning penises available – will you demand those too, in order to feel fully human? It is not Sikhism which maintains gender inequality – but you are using Sikhism as the battleground for fighting the hierarchies and inequalities of the world around you…. and unfairly so.

Look to Sikhism. Understand that therein women are regarded as life’s teachers; men as life’s students. A man, having reached the highest echelons of inner awareness possible for man, can only aspire to the next layer of progress if he is born into the female phenomena. That is, man has to be born as woman in order to evolve further. This is a highly simplified version of a deeply complex, sometimes contradictory and confusing system, so I am keeping it simple… but consider this: religion tends to focus on men rather than on women, on teaching men of the faith rather than women.

As I said: women are life’s teachers; men, life’s students.

And yet, here you are – so many of you Sikh women today – fighting for a right to be like your men, when you’re already so much more advanced than them. But, go on, please, trample over all the hard-won struggles of your forbears in the Sikh faith, seek out turbans today, penises tomorrow.

Bhindrawale: an alternative view

‘The Sikhs are the only race, that I know of, who sacrificed their own nationhood in order to free the non-Sikh population of India from more than one thousand years of humiliation, subjugation and occupation at the hands of not just one but two (Semitic) Empires. They did so having fought for and secured their own independence as a nation under Islam rule more than 200 years earlier.’ Avtar

For you to appreciate this hard-hitting essay I need to explore, examine, and briefly lay bare what is a Sikh.

It is a misnomer that being born into a practicing Sikh family makes you a Sikh. Certainly, children practice the rites and ritual of Sikhi. But that is learned behaviour. Even when mimicking their elders, and perhaps even aspiring to be a proper Sikh through such mimicry, children are not Sikh in the metaphysical sense.

A Sikh, as I have written countless times, is a strata above the realm of advanced Sants, Svamis, Sufis, and Saints. A sant is one who has absolute mastery over the psychic realm. A Sikh is responsible for the welfare of the sant realm.

At the times of, and attendant in seva to, the ten Sikh Gurus, (and due to the high originality of advanced innovation), a Sikh was an unbelievably calm pacifist, who, when required, would to lay to rest a repeat killer. The Sikhs of those times never had need to raise their voice. Their psychic bearing and presence was enough.

Bear in mind, in those times artificial voice projecting apparatuses such as the megaphone and later the mic and loudspeaker system, had not yet been developed. So, an orator of that period, regardless of faith, literally had to shout to get his message across. Shouting behaviour has not died, in India at least. People there seem to forget that they are using microphones, and can therefore speak gently. The screaming and shouting automatically raises one’s blood pressure, heightens one’s nervous system activity, and leads to a tensed physiology, which renders one primed for a physical confrontation. The person sounds and behaves assertively.

Another problem of the birth-Sikhs is that they are reared on stories of historical events that highlight bravery, courage, chivalry, and heroism. These are stories of fighting the odds and succeeding, more often than not. However, the Sikh parent imparting such stories is themselves not a Sikh in its full reality, but like their child a Sikh by birth only. And therein lies the problem of Sikhism.

A Sikh is one who, coming from any faith, is the master of, and has hands-on responsibility for, those who are an authority over the so-called spiritual world. That was what separated the Sikhs of the Gurus from the faithful of all other faiths.

Only the best of the best, the most humble of the humble, found a way to be in the seva of the Sikh Gurus. Some attributes of a Sikh:

* An analyser, scrutiniser, and improver…of whatever they may confront

* Addressing every female as ‘Ma’am’ and treating every female with dignity, chivalry, and lack of misogyny

* Studies war tactics and stealth strategy

* Master of hand-arms combat

* Outmanoeuvers opponents strategically

* Sikh men/women are regarded as tender, passionate, sensual lovers by most South Asians

* Remain faithful and loyal to one partner

* Their word is sacrosanct

Only with the above clarity will you be able understand today’s essay.

Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale

According to web searches he was born Jarnail Singh Brar on 2nd June 1947, and he died on 6th June 1984 aged 37. Leader of Damdami Taksal, one of the five formal seats of Sikhism, he was an outspoken orator. He voiced the resentment of the ordinary Sikh about their betrayal by the Hindus: leading up to and even after India’s independence, the Hindus had promised a separate Sikh nation; they reneged on this promise.

His popularity stemmed from his insistence that the faithful remain vigilant, and abide by the high requirements of the elite Sikhs, the Khalsa. Like the majority of Sikhs, he saw the events of bygone times through rose-tinted glasses, rather than accepting that society has always been a multi-spectrum of misfits who dally with idealism and bemoan the failures of others.

The majority of Sikh ‘leaders’ increasingly fail to appreciate what it takes to become a Sikh, and that there are unbelievably high standards of advanced knowledge required to progress into the Khalsa realm. The same was true of Bhindranwale, except that in his case his heart was in the right place. Like other leaders, though, he was not advanced enough to recognise the what or the why that makes a Sikh and the Khalsa uniquely responsible and thus special.

An insight: The sublime is experienced by nearly all practicing Sikhs as a faith-right; however, collectively, it remains an unquantifiable realm. They are moved and ‘protected’ by this arena, but they are oblivious as to how best to describe its existence, or the experiences it yields.

He was precisely in the same boat as your average run-of-the-mill Sikh. Like them, he too sensed, but he could not explain the sensation.

He was a doer, a go-getter, one who could not sit still. He readily took a stance against anything or anyone whom he considered to have fallen from the excellence he thought all Sikhs should live by. Drugs, a hedonistic lifestyle, and irreverence for the image of the perceived Sikh status quo rankled him. His generation blamed all society’s ills on the wealth that Panjab enjoyed as the green, agricultural energy-field of India. Panjab literally fed, and to this day feeds, India. This brought prosperity.

Prosperity in tandem with zero pressure of either local wars or impending invasions, led to parents showering their children with monetary gifts hitherto unheard of in India. Sikhs were, and are, massively wealthy compared to the rest of the non-west European world. In fact, when I traveled the countries that were at that time locked behind the iron curtain almost twenty years after leaving Panjab, I was shocked to see those countries suffering from lower, weaker, almost non-existent infrastructure; and the local poverty was breathtakingly shocking even in comparison to the Panjab of twenty years earlier.

So, Panjab was wealthy. Wealthy enough to send members of their family to study abroad, and indeed to live abroad; these members in turn sending remittances back to the family village and home, thereby increasing the family’s earning and power-prestige further.

The handicap of wealth is improved health. Health, married to wealth, automatically childs conceit, self-importance and delusions of the self as an omnipotent being. Sikhs of his time suffered from the same disease of the avant-garde, technicolour palette of romanticism seducing monologue, with philosophies spiced with short-lived interactions with European industrial civilisation.

In a mixture of multi-complex rationales, he laced his oratory skills with the insistence that wealthy Sikhs ought to pressure their children towards the rites normally associated with a Sikh monastic lifestyle. Its conditions are so confusing to an outsider, especially when each male is meant to see each woman as his sister or mother, yet be anxiously prepared to marry one of these very women, and thereafter, to engage in and enjoy a full sexual life with her. It’s a case of heads I win, tails you cannot live a normal lifestyle, unless you marry. These rich kids, emasculated by the parental pressure he advocated, threw tantrums.

He, meanwhile, gained fame and popularity. For he constantly evoked age-old glories of sword-fighting, small hand-arms defence, and overcoming outrageous odds against trained armies of invaders, or indeed against ‘home grown’ newly settled Muslim rulers. He drew crowds. He spoke uncompromisingly, mired in passion as if he had returned fresh from sword-fighting and hand-to-hand combat. Sikhs so love tales of hand-to-hand combat against overwhelming odds…his popularity increased exponentially. However, he had never set a foot on a battlefield, and he had no formal or informal military and tactical training.

He was an orator, one who had the ability to inflame his audience. He evoked passions. His message stirred people. He became an irresistible force. This drew the attention of the politicians. However kitsch he appeared to seasoned politicians nevertheless he commanded a sizeable vote bank that they couldn’t ignore. So, his ego was massaged, and seduction-hypocrisy gained momentum. Everything has a price. He had a price. It was a matter of identifying that price and leveraging him into the politicians’ pocket.

His price?

A date with destiny, a reluctant delusion that he was ‘chosen’ to deliver respect, along with self-determination to Sikhs within the statehood of a collective India.

Expatriate Sikhs stoked, inflamed, and financially supported calls for an independent state named Khalistan (and not Panjab). I truthfully cannot recall him advancing that particular idea, but the theme of self-determination never left his lips. In reality, all he sought – and as is the demand of all Sikhs – was dignity via the fulfillment of a promise; and the honest barter of that promise made to Sikhs by Pandit Nehru and (Mohan Dass Gandhi) Mahatama Gandhi, in the days before India’s independence.

This set him on a collision course. Prime Minister Indira Gandhi stepped into the ring and offered a staged, well-practiced trade-off; stopping short of Sikh demands for the fulfillment of the Anandpur Sahib Resolution.

A dance of Shiva had begun.

Death was on the cards.

Each thought it would be the other’s.

The death drum gathered speed.

And he made one naive mistake after another. He miscalculated the world of politics. In fact, he had zero appreciation of politics. He did not understand that you cut a tree for firewood one day and the next day you stand on its stump delivering a speech pronouncing your credentials as an ecologist.

His lack of military service became evident in his utterances. He took the bait. He prepared to take on the might of the Indian army’s modern weaponry and tactics with his handful of men equipped with small arms weapons. He was neither a politician, nor a strategist or tactician. His popularity was based on his honesty, earnestness and frankness. He lacked guile. He lacked deceit. He lacked hypocrisy. He lacked cunning. What he said was what he meant. Wonderful attributes for a religious orator. But as a politician and military tactician he was a dead duck.

If he had had a cunning mind, then he would and could have instigated a war between Pakistan and India. This would have brought the Sikh regiments stationed far afield from Panjab back to the border with Pakistan, which in the main is shared by Pakistan and Panjab. Simultaneously, he would, on the quiet, have had his own followers present in various cities ready to occupy main-frame buildings; the armed occupation of which would have put him in control of mass broadcast, and of transportation, thereby causing maximum and immediate mayhem among the people. Thereafter, he could have incited the Sikh regiments to support his quest for the negotiation of the Anandpur Sahib Resolution from a position of reasonable strength. Just for the fun of creating discord and facilitating the possible breakup of India, Pakistan would have supported him to the hilt, politically and militarily.

However, he did what no Sikh army had done in Sikh history. He occupied the holy shrine of Amritsar not for its protection from an imminent attack but for sheltering in. After all, prior to his occupation Amritsar was under absolutely no threat from an imminent Indian army attack.

A majority of expatriate Sikhs were against his occupation of Amritsar. Yes, he had supporters, but they were a minority, albeit a vocal one.

The outcome?

A foregone conclusion.

A mere formality.

He totally played into the hands of the politicians.

The rest is history.

I witnessed the events here in the UK, and am shocked by how many of the people who ridiculed him at the time, including his lack of education, now address him as a glorified, proud, fearless Sikh General.

Yes, they call him General!

He was an innocent man, honest and sincere as the day is long. But a General? Are Sikhs really that desperate that they equate his tactics with those of a General? I absolutely will credit him with fearlessness, courage and strength of character. He did not sell himself short. But a General? Come on, please, you Sikhs can do better than that. Give him plaudits, but let us not get carried away with overly emotional praise either.

Having said that, for me as a Sikh, he gave me the one thing no one else had delivered up to that point.

Let me explain.

While traveling Europe I would come across veterans of the first and the second European war (1914-18 and 1939-45) who many a time would present themselves to me as admirers of the Sikh soldiers and battalion, and who would salute me as an orthodox young Sikh. Apart for these European war veterans, everyone else would confuse me for an Arab, Muslim or indeed a Hindu. I was never recognised as a Sikh.

Because of this sincere, honest, earnest Sikh preacher, today I am recognised globally as a Sikh, part of a nation of people who gave up their own kingdom, their country, in order to free India.

My nation, a people I am proud to call my own, the Sikhs, made a selfless sacrifice foregoing their own nation for the sake of securing freedom for what is now more than a billion people in India.

Yes, the ruling classes cheated us out of a promise. But that is the political Hindu for you. The citizen Hindu and Muslim of India, by contrast, categorically maintains that we do deserve our own statehood. I thank them for their support.

Yet in today’s India, the arrogance of some Hindu politicians is leading them to proclaim that all citizens of India are Hindus.

I once again want to remind them that ‘Hindu’ is neither a race nor a religion.

Hindi is a communal language of communication that slowly gathered momentum following its birth just over one hundred and fifty years after the establishment of Sikhism.

Hindi is like the fabled pan-European language Esperanto. Nothing more and nothing less.

And as for Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale: Sikhs, he was a seasoned preacher, a Giani. He was not a Sant in any shape or form. Please, let us not get over emotional about his credentials. Let us be sincere in our evaluation.

As a Giani, what he achieved for Sikhism is that which the best amongst us will never be able to emulate or attain. He gave me global recognition, a global presence. And, no, I do not accept the excuse that globally, in the age of the internet, race Europeans mistake me for a Muslim. The truth is that they hate me because of the colour of my skin – pure and simple. It is race and culture hatred that they exercise. And the easiest way to murder me is to call me a Muslim. Race Europeans are neither that ignorant nor that stupid that they cannot tell me apart from a Muslim. Exactly how many Muslims in the western world walk around with their traditional very loose cloth wound around their heads? I have only ever seen three in all my years of living in race European countries.

So, the fact that the world now views me as a Sikh must be credited entirely to this one, very basically educated, sincere orator/preacher, who merely wanted the dignity and self-esteem of the Sikhs to be respected by the Hindu Government – the very Hindus who until 1946 had been slaves in their own land for just a little over one thousand years.

Sikhs deserve their dignity and self-esteem to be respected by the Hindu Government of India.

And on the anniversary death of this preacher I hope and pray it will begin to accept a world where Sikhs, Muslims, Buddhist, Jains, Christians and Hindus can live in peace with each other in the land we now call India: as autonomous cultures, languages, heritages, and dignities that together protect our collective defence, economy and infrastructure as these exist now.

 

 

Collapse of Cultural Consistency

Minority cultures have always survived as an illusion of a balanced rational-protection extended by the majority. That is, the majority culture has always depicted minor culture as an independent rational entity, portraying its survival as the basis of a modern tolerant society. However, this is fundamentally and factually not true.

I will use Sikhs living in United Kingdom to illustrate the point.

Like the Gurkhas, Sikhs are intrinsically docile, peaceful, caring, thoughtful, hospitable, and accommodating. Their polite tolerance has led them to be used, abused, and taken advantage of. We saw this in India’s promises pre-independence, and we see it today in how they are treated in the UK and other western countries.

In the United Kingdom, Sikhs have repeatedly had their cultural identity and articles of faith downgraded to a point where their kirpan, which for spiritual reasons has to have a 9 inch blade, has systematically been reduced in length to a 6 inch blade. Furthermore, the wearer is refused entry aboard a commercial flight. The equally important instrument that every turban-wearing Sikh carries, namely a five inch blunt needle used to tuck back hair that escapes along the lower edge of the turban, is also not permitted on board commercial flights. By contrast, Indian airlines permit both these article of faith – the kirpan and tucking-needle – as part of the essential grooming kit of every male Sikh.

So, let’s examine some of the reasoning behind the constant abuse and meddling through which the British government denigrates Sikh lifestyle, cultural norms, and religious heritage.

The primary facilitator of these attacks on Sikhs is their own deep capacity for tolerance. They deem it impolite to protest openly and overtly, because they consider the opposition should be culturally civilised. However, if the other side refuses to see the value of the Sikhs’ initial reasoning then Sikhs (like Gurkhas) consider the other side to be emotionally retarded, mentally inadequate, culturally uncivilized, and allow the opposition to ride roughshod over them. Their opponents just think ‘well, that was easy’.

Democracy is founded on the concept that the minority’s wellbeing is an unquestionable right, and a civilisation that protects minority rights is considered enlightened and modern. However, in the United Kingdom, Sikhs have always experienced the opposite of this maxim.

Additionally, Sikhs often create their own problems because their lack of guile, scheming, cunning, and deceit repeatedly short-changes them.

I will share some recent examples to illustrate the point.

During March and April, Sikhs exercise a traditional and fundamental faith-rite of taking the Sri Gurugranthsahibji on a spiritual cleansing and purifying procession, called ‘Nagar Kirtan’, through the streets from one Gurdwara to another of a given town, or indeed circumambulating the local streets of a Gurdwara if it is the only one in the town. Over the past ten and more years, the advent of Sikh-run radio and television stations has given Sikhs a new-found freedom of speech platform. This has led eager, well-intentioned but untrained reporters, and equally well-intentioned but untrained editors to allow utterly thoughtless, ill-informed individuals to express their opinions on the public media platform.

One elderly rotund man who happened not to wear a turban and represented one of the Gurdwaras of Southall stated: ‘The event is not managed professionally, and the free food stalls only serve rich Panjabi fare when they should only serve healthy food’ (from which I assume he meant a Mediterranean diet) ‘as our diet is very unhealthy and our people don’t do any exercise on top of that…’. This idiotic, ill-informed man’s views were broadcast live without any form of correction.

Why?

Because the reporters were all recent settlers in the UK. To not question or challenge a statement is a bedrock of their socialization, such that any mention of a European experience is lapped up verbatim even if it is utter nonsense.

Why were the remarks sheer stupidity?

Well, if we examine the normal Panjabi diet and compare it to the Mediterranean diet, nutritional reasoning would suggest that Mediterraneans outlive Panjabis by dozens of years, and that they die fit and healthy.

Really?

The reality is that one’s genetic makeup determines longevity, while fitness and diet have a smaller part to play in the scheme of things. On top of which a millennia old cultural diet hones a race’s ability to handle that diet, so that if it was fed a fundamentally alien diet to its DNA this would eventually have powerful degenerative effects on the individual. Added to which, diet advice by scientists and nutritionists changes every few weeks in the west. So, their opinion is hardly gospel anyway. Altogether, this renders the elderly man’s opinion groundless; and anyway his own physical shape strongly suggested he diets gleefully on the very rich Panjabi diet that he publicly denounced, and his protruding belly indicates that he rarely exercises if at all.

Holier-than-thou idiots are very fast to criticise the management of an event, but ask them to take charge and coordinate it themselves, and they soon realise precisely how difficult such a project is to handle.

The ill-conjectured statement broadcast on television failed to understand that the ‘Nagar Kirtan’ ‘langar’ (baptised, sanctified food) has to be in keeping with the customary ‘langar’ consumed during the times of the Sikh Gurus. The entire faith-ritual is about re-enacting several aspects of tradition established since the times of the Gurus.

Consequently, if a Mediterranean diet were foisted on the masses who partake in the spiritual journey of ‘Nagar Kirtan’, it is hardly going to exponentially increase the longevity of their life.

The very idea of ‘langar’ is not that of a free kitchen along with free food. ‘Langar’ intimates that the donors, cooks and servers are partaking in a hands-on spiritual ‘seva’ (selfless service) for their own spiritual improvement, and that those who partake in the ‘parsad’ (blessed and sanctified food) equally feel and sense their own spiritual awakening.

Moving on…

Unfortunately, heath and safety came knocking as soon as the first massive Gurdwara in the western world was constructed, and insisted that the ‘langar’ preparations had to abide by commercial kitchen standards. THEY ARE NOT COMMERCIAL BLOODY KITCHENS. It is not my or my culture’s fault that you Anglo-Saxons are dumb and dim dunces when it comes to advanced spiritual practices and nuances. The leading committee of the Gurdwara readily deferred their own advanced state of mind, and while discarding the Anglo-Saxon representative from London Borough of Ealing Council a dimwit retard, nevertheless accepted the commercial constraints on the ‘langar’ area. It did so to the point that cultural tradition in that Gurdwara has been destroyed, and this has deeply scarred the congregation. Well done London Borough of Ealing’s health and safety.

Sikhs assume that if they keep on accommodating the backwardness of the Anglo-Saxon mindset, Anglo-Saxons will very soon have an epiphany. That is never going to happen. Why? Because race-Europeans lack the quintessential organ for spiritual growth. They lack skin pigment.

The matter has become worse.

The police who marshal such spiritual events now insist that the Gurdwara pay commercial rates to the police for doing so. Sikhs seem unprepared to fight their corner, while deeming the police position to be that of a backward civilisation, to whom it is not worth explaining matters.

Let us examine this further.

A Gurdwara is a charitable institution. It is not a business. And unlike a football club it does not generate commercial income. If the police authority cannot distinguish commerce from cultural spiritual rationale, then it will not be very long before we in this country will have Asian migrant kids policing our towns and cities. After all, if the police is to mirror a commercial enterprise then its personnel expenditure will have to be trimmed to a point that indigenous natives will refuse to get out of bed to work as policemen/women. This then means that either (regardless of Brexit) east Europeans are hired, or Asian migrant personnel are drafted in on an income that would be palatable to them.

Dignity

Conservative governments seem to run this country as if it were a business. No, this country is not a business. It is a country. And if you cannot get your small minds around that simple idea then it is no wonder you are forever cutting welfare and care to the members of our community who need our collective help. We are not all born equal, but we all have dignity. Dignity exists on the principle that those more able should willingly care for those who are unable to care for themselves. There is no law written anywhere in stone, or in any figment of imagination, that allows one human – say for example, Ian Duncan Smith MP – to shrill with his private hair in knots that those who are less well off, or incapable, should be mercilessly pilloried.

And just to hammer home my point: ever tried zero hours, Mr Ian Duncan Smith MP? Sorry, that question was aimed at his dog, and if he does not have one, then please get a dog, and kindly put the question to that dog. Because the dog will have a better appreciation of the question then Mr Ian Duncan Smith MP ever will. Mr Ian Duncan Smith MP is an exact example of the dumb and dim dunce Anglo-Saxon I allude to above. On your death, Mr Ian Duncan Smith MP, please show the rest of humanity how you are going to take your wealth with you. You, like the rest of the motley crew, are going to leave it all behind here on this third-rate iron-rust-bucket planet called mother Earth.

The second example I share of Sikhs successfully scoring an own goal time and again involves myself.

I held talks with one of the Sikh television stations to broadcast, from a minority viewpoint, the absurd mistreatment by government institutions of minorities. Coming from me it would have been balanced but characteristically also very hard-hitting. My mobile and home phone is under constant surveillance and naturally ‘they’ were aware of the discussions I was having. In a very short space of time, the leader of the London Borough of Ealing Council, Councillor Ian Bell, accompanied by the London Borough of Ealing Police Commander, contacted the television owners and invited themselves to a meeting with the owners.

The Sikh owners – one is a brickie turned self-made multi-millionaire, and the main person is a very pious accountant – were massively ego-massaged. They were left with a strong impression not to rock the boat as it might have a detrimental effect on the television station. Thus, they contacted me to inform me that my idea for the half-hour weekly documentary would not be supported.

Fair enough.

Now here is the best part.

A few months after this meeting the television station was hit by the television authorities with a 30,000.00 pound sterling fine.

No kidding.

Had the owners of that particular television station held their ground and backed me, then the fine would never have been imposed, as I would have hit hard at the appropriate authorities: naming and shaming both the leader of the London Borough of Ealing Council councillor Ian Bell, and the Ealing Borough police commander for intimidation, coercion, and abusing their privilege and position in order to levy unacceptable pressure on the freedom of the media in the United Kingdom.

The future

Minorities are repeatedly told to assimilate and mimic English behaviour. Tony Blair was a great one for pushing that agenda. The ill-conceived concept was designed to propel minorities to become mindless mimickers of the English lifestyle, without adopting the abject rudeness of their ‘speak my mind’ attitude.

I am a product of observed and absorbed English behaviour and attitude. Thus, when needed, I can automatically be as selfish, centered, egotistical and petty as your normal bog-standard English bloke.

Yet, I repeatedly refrain, and it has to be said, I have to consciously urge myself to behave in that retarded fashion and mimic English behaviour.

However, Sikhs of the United Kingdom on the whole refuse to downgrade themselves and mimic English behaviour and attitude. And herein lies the crux of their problem. If they are not prepared to become selfish and self-centered, then they (like the Gurkha) will be used, abused, and discarded except when a government needs their military prowess.

Sikhs are at yet another cross-roads in their history. They intuitively know that they are ready to up sticks and leave their hard-earned wealth here, and re-locate as penniless refugees to another part of the globe where their entrepreneurship will be welcomed – as it once was here in the United Kingdom, just as it once was in east Africa.

But, will Sikhs leave having had their cultural norms weakened? No. I am of the opinion that they will revive them at the new place. And that is the relief that I live with, knowing that my cultural integrity will not be permanently diluted or weakened, regardless of the constant attacks here in the free west on my cultural norms and standards.

Once we minorities have left these shores, the United Kingdom’s indigenous natives can run this country as they see fit. After all, Iceland is going great guns without any input from a minority culture, so why should this Anglo-Saxon island called the United Kingdom not be able to do the same?

Festival of Life & Democracy

Nowadays, both the Festival of Life (a period of spiritual introspection for Sikhs), usually celebrated around the 13th April, and Democracy, are a catastrophe crammed into ubiquitous kitsch-deluded masculine grandiosity, positioning so-called virtue. However, both fall well shy of their own original and exacting standards.

Vasaakh:

Is a period within the cycle of a season of a hemisphere. It is the second month of the traditional earth calendar in the northern hemisphere. The first month began around the 12th /13th of March. Traditionally, there were 13 months in one year cycle, where some months had 32 days, and others less than 28 days. These months approximately correspond to what is now known as the astrological calendar. Indeed the astrological calendar also had 13 divisions, of which one was particularly short in duration.

Vasaakh represents the regeneration of the northern hemisphere, as it emerges from its winter hibernation into new life. It indicates the same, at a different point in the calendar, in the southern hemisphere. Vasaakh happens twice on our planet. Once in the northern, and then in the southern, hemisphere.

For Sikhs of the northern hemisphere, Vasaakh at a very rudimentary level refers to introspection, awakening, deeper consciousness, and overall spiritual repose, lived within full secular responsibility. For Sikhs of the southern hemisphere experience this psychic-spiritual sensation, and inner introspective regeneration, the festival of Vasaakh has to take place at the appropriate point in the seasonal cycle. Regeneration on the cusp of autumn/winter would be nonsensical, obviously.

Given the epithet of soldier-saint, circulating since the time of Guru Arjandevji, it is fitting that Vasaakh should also represent a moment of reaffirmation of our secular responsibilities (as much as of spiritual regeneration). In this regard, we pledge anew to be conscientious, trustworthy, reliable, dependable, and accountable through the five Ks; to protect lives, even those of enemies (and especially at the first time of engagement), and including those of every species occupying our own geographical zone (without becoming pedantic about the unseen life form).

Vasaakh is the second month of the Arya calendar. Remember, Sikhs, when they occupied Europe and especially the northern countries of Europe were then also known as Sikhs, Arya and Khalsa (Khalsa is another very ancient name, which at that time meant merging into the One. It retains the same meaning today but is usually confused with a word derived from the Aryan-influenced region north of Persia).

However, for a Sikh who advances and exalts into the Khalsa, the responsibility is even more exhaustive, meticulous, comprehensive, thorough, detailed, and exacting.

For me, at my own personal level, my white turban including the Five K’s represents that I am duty bound to protect the right of my enemy to take my life.

However, as a Khalsa, protection of life is my basic fundamental duty.

Therefore, while my enemy may want to take my life, protecting my own life takes priority for me as well as safeguarding his life. If he persists, then I must (without flinching) put him to rest, and say a prayer prior throughout. And I must bear no hatred towards him or his community for his actions against me. In fact, I must locate his immediate family and offer my on going assistance for the vacuum left by the slain.

As you can see, being a practicing Sikh, and then evolving into the fully fledged Khalsa is not as easy as many Sikhs seem to think. Simply being born into a Sikh family does not mean that you are a Sikh. The fundamental requirements of being a Sikh are a tad difficult; and elevation into Khalsa is well nigh impossible.

The most telling point of Vasaakhi is that Life has to be celebrated. A celebration steeped not in wanton drunkenness or salacious behaviour, but characterized by an inner audit of the preceding year and setting parameters for the coming year. The idea is to protect Life, thus allowing Life to give life to Life.

Hence, Vasaakh, the second month of the earth (northern hemisphere) calendar is the Festival of Life.

Democracy:

Is control and governance of an organisation or country by the majority of its eligible members.

The original idea was to put aside quarrels that escalated from verbal abuse to physical violence, armed attack, ultimately to death. Thus, wise men (no, not women; remember, women were/are inferior and unclean due to their menstruation) devised a holistic means to conduct their tribal clan’s mechanization. This included the involvement of the soothsayers, medicine person (they were both female and male), and then the formal ritual brigade, some of whom evolved into formal religious heads. Religious heads, ritually excellent, and had an intricate understanding of ancient medicine and alchemy, in tandem with psychic ability: this then allowed them hands-on responsibility and a veto in debates about communal care.

Over the past fifty years, political communities in certain cultures have distanced the influence of the religious order, and endeavoured instead to promote an isolationist-secular schema.

Nevertheless, the voting minority still suffers. Seldom was/is a single item of their need addressed. Promises and pledges are seldom kept by those in power.

We have a prime example of the role and fallout of pledges in the blatant lies peddled by politicians in the run-up to Brexit in the United Kingdom. The liars, far from being criminally charged, went on to hold high office, as in the case of Boris Johnson, the British Foreign Secretary.

Interestingly, if a man leads a group of women along a romantic path, while securing large sums of money from them, he is criminally charged. Yet we, the cattle-voting-class, are repeatedly told that politicians cannot be hauled into a criminal court, since they only offered pledges.

Such pledges, to revert again to Brexit in the United Kingdom, included the insistence – nay, assurance – that the monies saved from not being part of Europe would help turn around the failing National Health Service. But neither Boris Jonhson nor Nigel Farage (then leader of UKIP) can be prosecuted for their ‘pledges’ on the matter, because these have since been defended merely as suggestions and not promises to the electorate they deliberately misled.

This, guys, is democracy.

A con-artist who makes pledges to several women, only for the latter to find out they’ve been duped, would feel the full wrath of the law. But in democracy, liars (read: politicians) actually benefit from their lies, amassing financial and political advantage.

Many an English politician is therefore a criminal, as well as a recipient of bribes who then takes full advantage of his political position… as is the standard charge leveled at the average Indian politician. The difference is that in the English political system you ‘donate’ officially in order to buy your MPs support and protection; whereas in the Indian political system the donation is unrecorded. But the same bribery takes place across both systems.

This is democracy.

One example is from the mother of Parliamentary democracy and the other is from the world’s largest democracy.

So, is there a better system?

Yes indeed. And, no, it is not proportional representation.

The first cast-iron surety we need to put in place is that elected officials who lie during election are to be dismissed from office, criminally charged, and their ill-gotten gains confiscated.

Then, to equally reflect the minority racial or a religious group, a consensus of the population establishes in order to attributes a ratio to each voting group. This means that the minority under the ratio formula will have exactly the same power to their vote as the majority. Thus, now we have governance with consent rather than governance of the numerical votes cast. Numerically, the majority will still cast the larger share of the votes cast; however, due to the ratio formula, the minority voter will have an equal say in the actual outcome and politics.

The ratio formula outstrips the dated, inflexible, and unaccountable voting system termed democracy, and the new outcome would in its truer sense be democracy in earnest.

This system would have enormous positive impact globally, especially in many artificially-constructed countries by the Europeans, as in the case of the Ottoman Empire, in Africa, and across each and every country/landmass that came under the race-European empire.

Yes, it is up to us, the voiceless cattle-class-voter, to demand the fairer ratio vote.

And at this junction, just past, namely that of the spring equinox, in alignment with Vasaakh and the ‘Festival of Life’ that is Vasaakhi, why not push for and establish this fair voting system?

Jackals & Tigers

In numerous societies, jackals have betrayed their own kith and kin, allowing outside powers to subjugate their race, culture, language, and heritage.

I am going to use Sikh examples and indicate to others how they may take steps to safeguard their cultural integrity and dignity.

Dr Rami Ranger & Dr Kapoor

Today’s essay endeavours to illustrate the mechanics invoked at a psychic level to hamper the independence of individuals, communities, and societies. I will use two from within the UK Sikh community to make my point. The first person is Dr Rami Ranger and the second Dr S. S. Kapoor.

Backgrounds of the characters

Raminder Singh Ranger, born July 1947, is Chairman and Managing Director of Sea Air and Land Forwarding Ltd, and the winner of a Queens Award for Export. He secured his PhD from the then newly established Khalsa College, Harrow, London, which was run by a Dr S. S. Kapoor, OBE, D.Litt., PhD., M.Comm (Hons), M.A. (Law), FCCA, FCMA CGMA.

I have to own up to the fact I have not read Dr Rami Ranger’s thesis, nor for that matter Dr Kapoor’s. I do, however, have a copy of the latter’s English translation Sukhmani Sahibji (2007).

Sukhmani Sahibji is an elaborate work by the fifth Sikh Guruji, Guru Arjandevji. If Dr Kapoor’s translation is indeed ‘A Dynamic Look into the Meaning and Philosophy of Sukhmani Sahib’, as boldly claimed on the front of the book, then heaven help us. One of Dr Kapoor’s PhD students presented me with the book. If I had received a pre-publication copy for review, then quite frankly I would have dismissed the author as a simpleton who lacks internal awakening, inner growth, and humility. The work reads as the articulation of ideas cobbled together from the internet, and suffers thereby from a lack of philosophical depth and insight.

Dr Kapoor claims he has published fifty books to date. If his translation of one of the cornerstones of Sikh thought, held in unqualified esteem by Sikhs, is an indicator of his philosophical depth and internal awakening, then I feel embarrassed. Based on that book, I would unflinchingly dismiss his entire published oeuvre as asinine and superficial, unequal to the philosophical heights he has set himself, and that Sukhmani Sahibji demands.

Now, if the principal of the college produces such work of staggering ignorance and a regurgitation of others’ work, then what quality and depth can be ascribed to his students’ productions?

To put this into perspective, one of Dr Kapoor’s students who interacted with me to produce their thesis, was repeatedly questioned about the source of their insights, so advanced were they in comparison with any sources Dr Kapoor used. Ofcourse, the student was under strict instructions not to divulge my input to Dr Kapoor or his cohort, and passed their PhD, but not without some interrogation.

Focus of this essay

Dr Ranger and Dr Kapoor are Chairman and General Secretary of the British Sikh Association respectively. Together, they are in the process of raising one million pounds sterling to fund the creation of a Sikh regiment in the British Army. Furthermore, Dr Ranger has stated that he is against the creation of an independent Sikh state, citing the ‘fact’ that the Sikh Gurus themselves never asked for or advanced the idea of such a state.

It is with this statement on the Sikh state, made by Dr Ranger, that I take issue in this essay titled ‘Jackals and Tigers’.

I do so by way of sharing some basic historical facts as well as the precise meanings of (many an) inaccurately translated words.

Misinformation has led ‘Singh’ to be translated as ‘lion’, when in fact it means tiger. A tiger is larger, bigger, stronger, more intelligent, and exemplifies a thoughtful predator, in comparison to a lion.

(Babbar) ‘Sher’, is the word for lion in the north Indian languages. ‘Singh’ refers to a tiger in the same languages. Thus, it is extremely embarrassing to hear ardent forthright no-nonsense Sikhs laying claim to a higher value by proclaiming themselves as ‘(Babbar) Sikhs’. In doing so, they concede to being weaker, less powerful, and less intelligent than the tigers they really are.

The Sikh confederacy following the death of Maharaja Ranjit Singh was identical to the confused, contradictory, self-indulgent, and obstinate Sikh groups of today (including across the diaspora).

These fragmented and egotistical groups are very easy to manipulate. Praise and aloofness pay dividends in further dividing such groups and, historically, we can see this in the massive Sikh losses during the two Anglo-Sikh wars.

Tigers became jackals, readily accepting praise, gifts, and promises of glory-rule before the Anglo-Saxons first war against them. After that the second Anglo-Sikh war was a foregone conclusion. In-fighting, self-importance, finger-pointing, and a holier-than-thou attitude meant that regardless of all the prayers offered up the Sikhs got their butt smacked.

For many years now, I have been at pains to amalgamate the various Sikhs groups within the UK, and I feel honoured and privileged to see such a configuration finally taking shape. This began with the dismantlement of the Khalistan movement, and then the formation of the Sikh Consultative Forum (now the Sikh Council). The process of getting the Sikhs to operate under one umbrella is organic, but it is slowly taking shape.

I always have to remind myself that Sikhs are not born hypocrites. They are born honest, sincere, and truthful, even when being so is to their own detriment. Thus, diplomacy does not come to them naturally. However, diplomacy is what is needed immediately and urgently.

In the 1970s, when Sikhs sought their own country, I stood on the sidelines and realised that lions were once again about to be betrayed by jackals. Each group within the Khalistani movement was back-biting the other. Each uttered phrases from the Sri Guru Granthsahibji (Sikhism’s living Guru [their holy scriptures]) parrot-fashion, and tried to out-manoeuvre the others. Standing on the sidelines, I could see how easily they were going to be broken apart from within, and betray others.

Ignorance led the movement, arrogance dug the graves, and the naive became the corpses.

As a Sikh, standing on the outside looking at the massacre the Khalistani movement triggered on its own defenseless people in Panjab, there is an immovable pain seated deep in my psyche.

A self-trained army that out-manoeuvred the raider Abdali Shah after he almost decimated them is the legend heard and spoken about as far as Vietnam – whose own forces took sustenance from Sikh valour, and who deployed similar small-group attack tactics in their success against the Americans.

But what happens when Sikhs have to work together as a large unified group?

During the setup of the Sikh Consultative Forum I strenuously indicated that the formula I supported and advocated was one in which there was a formal head (at the time it was my nomination Bhai Mohinder Singhji of Soho Road Gurdwara,) and a figurehead, to whom the former would be answerable. Albeit that the figurehead of the organisation would hold no power within the constitution, the formal head would not be able to deliver the agreed consensus of the Forum without the prior approval of the figurehead.

Sadly, the position of figurehead was never established. But, just as I imagined, and as is the norm with such things, the Forum underwent – and will continue to undergo – reformation and realignment, and of course renaming, I also indicated at the time the Sikh Consultative Forum was established – and still do – that each Sikh who wishes to interact with government must lodge an agenda with the Sikh Consultative Forum and share the outcome of the meeting with it.The Forum must then distribute this information, and all such updates, to each constituent gurdwara. Did this ever happen? Like hell it did. But I live in hope.

If my indications had been followed through with, and such a structure established, then today I would not need to reprimand Dr Ranger and Dr Kapoor.

Admonishment

The United Nations’ definition of a country stipulates that it must have its own currency, language, law, and defence, amongst other things. Twice, once during the time of Guru Arjandevji (the 5th Guruji) and then again during the time of Guru Tegbahadurji (the 9th Guruji), the exact emblems of an independent country were established and flourished for the time.

So, for Dr Rami Ranger to state on his webpage that he does not support a Sikh independent state and that the Sikh Gurus never had or argued for an independent state amounts to rank ignorance masquerading as self-indulgent importance. This is the same Dr Ranger who has a doctorate from Khalsa College, Harrow, under the aegis of Dr Kapoor’s. And let’s not forget that this is the same Dr Kapoor who is the general secretary of the organisation Dr Ranger set up. One does not need an ‘ology’ to evaluate the veracity of the doctorate in question.

If either of the two gentlemen feels I am wrong, then they are welcome to take me to court, and we’ll examine their literature using current anti-plagiarizing software to determine the veracity of their work.

I humbly suggest that Dr Rami Singh Ranger remove the ignorant remarks attributed to the Sikh Gurus and Sikhism’s desire to enjoy self-determination.

And let’s not lose sight of the fact that Indian states are, and to date function as, independent sovereign countries within a federal framework called India.

Dr Rami Singh Ranger’s remarks on his website are more to do with selling himself as a poodle of the British government via whom he receives plaudits and accolades.

Why is it that I as a Sikh do not need a British Empire honour to make me feel a sense of self-worth?

If both gentlemen’s self-worth is only measured by how many accolades they can secure from the British then my best wishes are with them.

However, can they please be kind and considerate enough not to make factually inaccurate statements in order to curry favour with their British masters?

Meditation within: Mechanical Time, Organic Time & Timelessness (German Time Vs Brexit Time)

European concept of time:

On 31st December 1899, a second was determined to be 1/31, 556,952.9747th of a mean solar day. In 1955, the second was re-calculated, using the caesium beam atomic clock, as 1/86,400th of a mean solar day. The present European concept of time was set then, in 1955. The quantum clock led to the femtosecond which is to a second what a second is to 31.71 million years, and to an attosecond, which is to a second what a second is to 31.71 billion years. That clock was superseded in 2015 by an optical lattice clock.

However, earth’s rotation, in conjunction with the galaxy and the universe, is irregular and slowing down, and the mechanical clock is utterly dysfunctional with and irrelevant to bio-organic time phase.

Arya concept of time:

Yuga:-

There are four yugas – Satya, Treta, Dvapara, and Kali. These each have a pre-determined duration lasting millions of years, and they follow each other cyclically. A cycle comprising the four yugas is known as a maha-yuga. Within this is the life span of the earthlings, demi-gods (please check wikipedia for a list of Arya and Greek demi-gods), and gods (Brahma etc).

Satya yuga – 1,728,000 years – golden age

Trata yuga – 1,296,000 years – silver age

Dvapara yuga – 0,864,000 years – bronze age

Kali yuga – 0,432,000 years – iron age

1 Maha yuga – 4,320,000 years

 

The Maha yuga is cyclical in both descending and ascending phase.

 

71 Maha yuga = 1 Manvantara (destruction and then recreation)

1000 Maha yuga = 1 kalpa (night of Brahma)

1000 Maha yuga = 1 Kalpa (day of Brahma)

1 day of demi gods = 360 earth days

 

Demi-Gods live for 100 years of their time scale, and are offspring of gods and humans.

Brahma lives for 100 years of its time scale, dies, after which a new Brahma evolves.

(It should to be noted that the Arya resuscitated the existence of the decimal point and the zero, without which astronomical calculations were impossible. They also re-established negative indices and algebraic rules).

Similar to modern timescales the Arya had a name for sub-atomic units of time and based their calculations on that understanding, called paramanu, where:

2 Paramanus = 1 Anu

3 Anu = 1 Trasarenu

3 Trasarenus = 1 Truti

100 Trutis = 1 Vedha

3 Vedha = 1 Lava

3 Lavas = 1 Nimesha (the twinkling of an eye)

3 Nimesha = 1 Ksana (moment)

5 Ksana = 1 Kastha

15 Kastha = 1 Laghu

15 Laghus = 1 Nadika

2 Nadika = 1 Muhurta

6 or 7 Nadika (depending on length or day or night) = 1 Prahara (1/4 of a day or night)

1 Day = 4 Yamas (6 hour period)

15 Days = 1 Fortnight (alternating between bright and dark period)

2 Months = 1 Ritu

6 Months = 1 Ayana (southerly & northern)

2 Ayanas = 1 day/night of demi-gods

 

Arya micro-timescale against modern time scale, is as follows:

1 paramanu = 60750th of a second

1 truti = 29.6296 microseconds

1 tatpara = 2.96296 milliseconds

1 nimesha = 88.889 milliseconds

45 nimesha (1 prana) = 4 seconds

6 prana (1 vinadi) = 24 seconds

60 vinadis (1 nadi) = 24 minutes

60 nadis (1 ahoratra) = 1 day

According to Arya sun time:

100 truti (atom) = 1 tatpara

30 tatpara = 1 nimesha (twinkling)

18 nimesha = 1 kashtha (bit)

30 kashtha = 1 kala (minute)

30 kala = 1 ghatika (1/2 hour)

2 ghatika = 1 muhurta (hour)

30 muhurta = 1 ahoratra (day)

 

Arya astronomical texts are divided time into two categories:

Murttakalah – manifest time or organic time

Amurtakalah – unmanifested time or mechanical time

 

Arya astronomer Varaha Mihira divided a day/night into 24 Horas (Greek ‘Ora’; Latin ‘Hora’; English ‘Hour’). From this is derived the 24 hour system. This was a change from earlier Arya astronomers divisions of day/night into 60 ghatikas.

The moon was used as the basis for the calculation of the fortnight and the month. The solar month entered calculations much later.

 

Samvatsara cycle:

Means a year. 60 samvatsara rotate in cyclical order, divided into three sections of 20 samvatsaras each. The 1st is Brahma, the 2nd is Vishnu, and the 3rd is Shiva.

 

All of this only comes into its own when we begin to rationalise the puzzle of incidents written in the Arya classics of Ramayan (life exploits of Lord Rama) and the Mahabharata (life exploits of Lord Krishna) into our current timescale. Lord Krishna’s time can be placed 70-100 millions years ago. Lord Rama’s period goes further back, aligning with the destruction of the planet which now litters (the asteroid belt) the space between Mars and Jupiter. It was during this time that Earth’s original moon was destroyed, and to stabilize our portion of the solar system an artificial moon was ‘brought’, manoeuvered, and set into motion around Earth. It is this ‘moon’ we see in the sky. It has secrets, slowly unravelling as humanity comes to terms with esoteric phenomena, albeit it has a sub-strata of three-dimensional Beings living there also – a technical civilisation vastly advanced than our own.

During a recent inter-galactic war, Mars had its protective atmospheric zone vaporized. Granted, it was badly depleted by the un-repentant extraction of its mineral and natural resources by humans, as currently happening here on earth. Also worth noting in addition is that Mars had a full set of oceans, lakes, rivers and fresh water; Earth in reality was a second, substitute home, and furthermore, up to that point ‘earthlings’ also resided on one other sphere within this solar system.

This latest inter-galactic war was a very recent event in the scheme of things. It remains fresh in the unconscious psyche of all non race-Europeans. It is this awareness that my seniors are very mindful of. However, a lower order shared with the Europeans the art of gunpowder, and weapons that could be used for destructive means. Later, a similar lower order gave details of projectiles, and their powering mechanisms to the German Max Muller when he visited old India. Thankfully, European mind thus far has only understood the very basic elements of the powering mechanism. This in-depth critical information was used to develop the V2 rocket by the Germans, a weapon of war during the European war (1938-1945), and is the bedrock of current space travel, of which the cruise missile is the latest ‘avatar’.

A short while back, another lower order was advising a European power on the development of a mechanism, with fuel system, and fundamental stablising factors, that would make the atomic weapon a redundant system; and that would allow travel to the nearest star system in about a couple of hours. The higher order, and I as one who had earned access to the debate, spoke out vehemently against sharing any further information with race-Europeans as they would only use it to subjugate other races; and far worse, they would start a fight with other Beings in our solar system and beyond, resulting in a war that would seal the final destruction of Earth. The exchange of information was duly stopped, and an agreement reached between Chen (Zen) and Indian mystics to stop all such exchanges until humanity has sufficiently evolved to a point where each human cares for their fellow human, the planet, and its resources and other dwellers.

Current technology is so utterly backwards that it can be classified as ‘primate weaponry’. Technically bereft, the current thinking (aka European consciousness) is limited to mechanical thinking. Asian thinking by comparison automatically includes the psychic dimension. Aboriginal thinking is pure and sublime, and is the only thought paradigm that has the capacity to fathom creation and its layered dimensional presence. Indian thought paradigm understands the concept of creation based on the organic timescale, but does not hold the key to unravelling its secrets.

The (Indian) organic timescale differs hugely from the European mechanical system. The contradictory mathematics and rules of physics have to be understood at a psychic level, and that is where meditation comes into its own. Meditation, where thought is held in poise, has to become the normal function; and it is only then that complex, hitherto incomprehensible, maths and laws of physics will allow further venture into creation. At the current juncture, humans can only travel a universe as a concept of an analytical thought-sphere, and even then mechanical technology, with Indian assistance and leadership, will limit travel along a single plane trajectory. It is only when humans appreciate the excellence of African, and thereafter Aboriginal, thinking that they will appreciate multi-layered dimensional life form and existence.

Yet, this very reality can also be experienced by merging into permanent meditation, which allows entry into samadhi. It is samadhi that is the opening portal, facilitating factual recognition of the multi-dimensional cosmos.

It is there that humans will engage with demi-gods, and gods…on a permanent basis.

Reverting…

The English copied the German (1938-1945) practice of beginning a day at midnight for purposes of industrial manufacture. Thus began the idiotic ‘day begins at midnight’ nonsense. It has remained in force ever since.

Now that England has exercised Brexit will it, I wonder, drop the German clock time, or retain the German war-time timescale?

Oh, the luxurious stupidity of ignorance…

Interestingly, it was I who re-introduced the phrase ‘ignorance is bliss’, which was then used in the first part of The Matrix film trilogy. This came about because His Holiness in whose tutelage I was placed during my early teens had input into the making of The Matrix. We were watching the much-flaunted modern Bollywood version of the Mahabharata televised on BBC. We looked at each other and felt utter shame at the amateur depiction and rendition of the Indian classic. Interestingly, several of my tongue-in-cheek quotes had already been used regularly in Bollywood by this time. This happened because His Holiness has direct access to directors and actors from Bollywood. Thereafter, his access to Hollywood directors and actors and the making of The Matrix was a foregone conclusion. The Matrix is our rendition of Mahabharata, and its dialogue of how we explain the esoteric in common parlance.

Reverting…

During samadhi, time changes. It is an event-based system, and time has no meaning there per se. As an event-based system, samadhi doesn’t measure the passing of time. Here on Earth, although time sequence is organic, it is circumstantial. This means you can suffer, remain unaffected, or benefit from a situation. By contrast, in samadhi, events take shape and dissolve, but your circumstances remain unaffected. This is because mechanical time becomes dysfunctional and irrelevant. In samadhi, events surpass 360 degrees… a concept humans understand. 360 degrees is a three-dimensional concept, and limits our understanding of how space obscures, or indeed becomes an obstacle, unless one is advanced in samadhi; and only then it is possible to appreciate the limitation of 360 degree conceptual existence.

For example, space as you see and experience it is the very veil that obscures or hides advanced existence. During meditation, and with guidance on how to remain in samadhi, the space-veil disintegrates, or opens up, allowing experience of multi-dimensional existence. The human brain is incapable of fathoming this reality. After all, death experience is not brain-based; that experience is beyond thought-limitations also. Samadhi is not brain or thought based. One has to accept that several bodies co-exist and surround the physical entity. It is one of them that allows consciousness to experience advanced layers of existence.

It is in that advanced state that one meets demi-gods and then gods. Beyond that state lies a platform, an accepted state that is the domain of an Earth personality named Guru Nanakdevji, who re-established Sikhism…for the umpteenth time. It is Guru Nanakdevji who categorically states in his writing in Guru Granthsahibji that Akaal is an environment contained within yet another environment. Human three-dimensional consciousnesses is unable to understand that reality.

Note: I know this only because under tutelage I attained the pedestal of grace. It is that grace which allows me access to and understanding of certain matters. It is a privilege. And I am the first to say that I do not accept that I have the right to experience the higher states by my own volition. That environment is utterly complex, contradictory, and confusing. It is where, unless guided, one falls victim to the advanced ‘divine’ lure of the limited existence (that’s the devil).

And each of you who think that as a Sikh you need no one to teach, guide and show you the passage and its pitfalls, are ignorant and peddling utter nonsense. My dear Sikhs, advanced awakening is not the same as self-teaching masturbation. This is a very serious awakening and can only be accessed through humble service by not expecting anything in return. The person you are in servitude to is a person who is ultimate in experience and has personal accreditation to enter advanced states.

You must remain humble. If the person to whom you are attached is of a lower order do not fret; as your servitude and humbleness are recognised. Eventually, a guide, a mentor, a sublime light-Being will be assigned to you. That person will find you. An automatic, seamless relationship will evolve. However, that person will have to decide if he is willing to make you his ‘ang’. Ang means one’s own. One’s person. One’s self with itself. Where two become one. For reasons I have never fathomed, I attained that privilege. And it is that privilege that I function through, deciphering facts from assumptions.

For example, commentators regale how the gods are human in form and attitude, and their progeny even more so. In my autobiography, now in the process of coming into publication, I explain how and why that is not the case.

I will leave you with this thought. Look into the night sky. You see a lot of space. In advanced samadhi this very sector of our galaxy is empty space. We do not exist. Now conjecture and contemplate as you look at the night sky, and you see space.

Toothbrush, Worship, Contemplation & Meditation

We non race-Europeans living in the west or defined by the west, keenly mimic western behaviour and morality, even though our instincts are to reject it.

For example: It is assumed that race-Europeans would not eat from an unwashed spoon from the sink, or drink from an unwashed cup. Yet, every morning and night they pick up a toothbrush from the holder, use it, rinse it, and replace it; and we follow suit.

Now, how many of us use cutlery and dishes that are merely rinsed with water rather than properly cleaned with washing-up liquid? How many of you clean and use dishes in this way for a year, maybe two?

A toothbrush is rinsed in running water, used repeatedly, twice daily, for two to three years at a time.

Don’t you think that like your dishes your toothbrush should also be washed thoroughly with good quality washing-up liquid, rinsed under boiling water, dried, and stored before its next use?

It is like inviting someone over to your house for a meal, and insisting you sit in your recently used bathroom, which smells of your foul waste. Would your guest agree to eat in that bathroom?

Yet, race-Europeans not only use the bathroom to brush their teeth, they actually store their toothbrushes in the same foul-smelling area where the whole family defecates. They then brush their teeth after each family member has finished their stint in the bathroom.

How nice.

In many Indian families the toothbrush is kept in a separate room altogether, a room dedicated to oral hygiene alone.

So, what has this to do with worship, contemplation and meditation?

Figuratively speaking, argumentative analytical humans follow the very practice of keeping their oral hygiene instruments in the toilet cubicle when it comes to worship, contemplation, and meditation.

They have convinced themselves, and anyone willing to lend them an ear, that worship, contemplation, and meditation can be conducted anywhere, anytime and in any situation.

Then they meet someone from my background, and after repeated attempts to impress us with how deep, beneficial and rewarding their technique is, they are surprised when we invite them to join us for a session of real worship. The rite, ritual and rigidity of the routine confuses them. Having to sit motionless for three hours and twelve minutes in the morning, and then again in the evening… well let’s just say that after the first morning session we never see them again.

Regardless of your birth-faith, worship in every faith is a serious activity.

In Sikhism, the morning prayers are meant to last the full allotted time of two hours and forty minutes, as are the evening prayers. At this basic level of worship, one is expected to sit motionless, without breaking the cross-legged posture, the entire time.

The master should be able to point to a student, have them stand up straight, walk ten paces, turn, walk back, and sit down again without experiencing numbness in the legs from the cross-legged posture.

How is this done?

By conscious use of bio-energy. To retain bio-energy (it is not an energy per se, but an entity….a life form), the flow of this entity (not energy), and thus prevent the student suffering from numb legs, requires intense focused attention on one’s bio-system. At the same time, the student must be attuned to the master’s thought-pattern and psyche.

Furthermore, each living being attracts and distributes entity-presence through the base transference conduits of radiation, convection, and conduction. Above this is the rule that controls the flow of the psychic entity. Above that, more subtle refined entities have their pathways, and we corporeal beings (be that as rocks, dust, air or the atmosphere surrounding this planet) are touched. We interact, and absorb or deflect, according to our initial agreed operating parameters.

Now this is where the law of confusion comes into its own.

Many an evolved and refined entity-energy is hugely disruptive, disgustingly harmful and distorted. Its ethos is so anti-god in comparison with our concept that we may as well refer to this type of entity as the devil. This evolved and refined entity-energy is the equivalent of drinking a cup of water from your recently flushed toilet bowl.

Thus, it is dangerous to perform worship, contemplation and meditation in the presence of this type of entity-energy, as the entity will masquerade itself as ‘god-energy’ and seduce you to become its pawn. Subsequently, its unbalanced and perverted social, moral and ethical compass is portrayed to your own mindscape as the genuine article.

You become a global saviour who has all the answers…if only the whole human world would bow down to you. And, of course, there is no point in telling you that you might have screwed up. No, not you!

So, you see, worship, contemplation, and meditation are not as easy as the argumentative analytical humans would have you believe.

Here, I am having a dig at the numerous global new-age centres, yoga studios, and in Sikhism the cult of the Akhand Kirtani Jatha.

The leading lights of these centres, having visited India and spent a length of time in the company of a teacher (no, not a guru, albeit they may call them gurus), assume they have learned and understood, and are therefore capable of spreading spiritual vibes.

They fail to appreciate that it takes lifetimes to master rite, then ritual, then worship. However, these self-appointed saviours of planet earth think they are the chosen one, and begin to teach. Idiots teaching idiots: they hand out certificates to idiots who have completed a set course claiming the new idiot is qualified to practice, and the newly-qualified idiot spreads the idiotic message to other delusional idiots…and just like a rolling stone their idiotology gathers no moss as it moves ever forward…and you wonder why the planet is in such disarray!

The new-age centres, along with the commercial yoga centres and the cult of Akhand Kirtani Jatha, all practice a daily régime akin to keeping their toothbrushes in the same room where the stench of their faecal matter becomes airborne. This attaches onto their toothbrushes, and they use those toothbrushes religiously, without a moment’s thought about hygiene.

Please do not assume that worship, contemplation, and meditation are easy or can be conducted anywhere or at any time.

If the surrounding area is not conducive to meditation, one cannot begin worship, contemplation, or meditation.

An analogy: men do not pick up a street prostitute and engage in sex with that person in the open view of everyone. Even that basic transaction requires a closed environment and privacy to a degree. Brothels have become the exact environment for that type of activity.

In the same manner, worship, contemplation, and meditation can only be exercised and conducted at a set time, in a pre-designated area, for a particular length of time. The harmonics of that area have to be brought into line, over a period of time, with the exercise of worship, contemplation and meditation.

This is why advanced beings chose certain points of the earth’s surface for the general public to gather and conduct worship. These points were turned into places of worship. They then become institutions with management committees, where conflict evolved, and pseudo-political parties were established. However, to you the ordinarywala, I humbly indicate and request: please attend the prescribed centers associated with your birth-faith, conduct your prayers sitting in the main chamber, for the one hundred and sixty minutes, and then leave. Additionally, I plead, please do not get entrapped in the politics of the place.

Places of worship are the centres of antrekarna (soul) cleansing – cleansing here means re-harmonising. A cleansed antrekarna (soul) accommodates clarity of thought and aids one’s inner advancement.

Meditation & Witchcraft

What is meditation?

It is not a discipline. It is not an organised scheme with specific and unique rules. It is not an emotional procedure. Because it is not these things, because it lacks a logic-architectural schema, meditation opens itself up to the feverishly amateurish analysis of those who wish to induct the ill-disciplined secular masses into something whose rules and metaphors they themselves have no appreciation of.

This is when witchcraft comes into its own. Witchcraft is one of the arts of interference.

Originally, during the Brahma period, witchcraft signified living in tune with nature. This makes sense given that initially, bio-thought entity had absolute understanding of, and adhered to, the functions and boundaries of creation-rule, i.e. humans were attuned to nature.

Brahma is the initial stage of each bio-thought entity’s (for our purposes here: human) evolution – comprising part of the Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, and Maiea symmetry of creation manifestations.

That witchcraft has since transformed into an act of interference flows from the fact that the creation-manifestations following Brahma – Vishnu, Shiva, and Maiea – entail more complex relationships and dynamics with nature. This is not to say that witchcraft is not still enmeshed in some basic nature-dynamic, but that this has become layered with other motivations more in sync with the post-Brahma creation-manifestation cycles.

It is worth noting, indeed, it is vital to acknowledge that the four stages of creation-manifestation are not Vedic or Hindu in the proper sense. These concepts were always already existing. Vedanta and Vedic theologians simply colonized these terms for their own use. Indeed, the Sikhism of antiquity also utilised concepts of Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, and Maiea already in circulation.

Consequently, we can say that these terms – Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, and Maiea – do not belong to any particular movement. They are our collective human inheritance. Their functions and boundaries are those which we too operate within, though not blindly or without struggle.

When the cycle and essence of Brahma was diluted, and replaced by a new set of rules, regulations and limitations, the next cycle – Vishnua – began. It had to vie for authority since bio-thought entities did not so easily relinquish the Brahma essence, nor let it transmute so totally into Vishnu ethos and parameters. So, there is some entanglement between outgoing and incoming creation manifestations, as well as the normal kind of setbacks that each cycle naturally has to go through in the course of what is its own evolution.

We are now in a (negative) Shiva cycle. The current Shiva cycle began to take presidency about seventy million years ago. This cycle, like those preceding it, has been slowly evolving, experiencing minor or major setbacks whenever bio-thought entities abuse nature. Such setbacks – aberrations of nature – effectively cause a reset to take place and everything reverts to its natural earth state within the cycle.

But, and this is where confusion arises, within each cycle exists the expressions of all the other cycles.

What of the bio-thought entities and their sometimes abusive relationship with nature? Well, of all the bio-thought entities on this planet, humans are the most impatient, irrational and illogical. It is these traits that compel them to challenge the parameters that confine them, e.g. nature and the various creation-manifestations. They do so partly by seeking short-cuts, and they join with others who share their ‘creative’ bent. This short-cut is witchcraft.

The potency of witchcraft is continually growing as those who seek short-cuts give themselves over to ever fantastical fits of imagination, evolving new ways to obtain their desired outcome – and, significantly, to impose that desire. They act, and come to be propelled by, a feeling of their own god-like existence and power.

So, it is the dissonance that bio-thought entities create between themselves and nature that has transmuted witchcraft from its original harmony-based practices into evil.

Now, we can see witchcraft not merely as a ‘thing’ but as existing along a continuum, from kind and compassionate to hurtful and evil. (FYI: there is another, fourth kind, which I shan’t discuss here).

One of the many pitfalls of delusional meditation, which most individuals participate in and practice, is the awakening of self-importance. For numerous inexplicable reasons this leads a person into the limelight – he is turning towards a search for short-cuts, and away from the genuine desire to assist and aid that characterized his initial encounters. The desire for short-cuts replaces sympathy with ever-increasing levels of manipulation. This is when witchcraft begins.

Witchcraft is the art of manipulating the status quo.

Beginning with kindness, the short-cutters’ own egos lead them into the murky arena of vengeful witchcraft when promises to fulfil their desires are not met. The downward spiral begins. There is no escape. Ego – a life entity in its own right – sucks the short-cutter ever deeper into its clutches. The short-cutter is mesmerised, and hypnotized by the allure of self-importance, which encourages further ventures, this time in the practice of hurtful witchcraft.

Let us now put some tangible reference to this.

Islam, Hebrew and Christianity are all encased in vengeful witchcraft. Race-Europeans are steeped in the same. Great Britain is the renowned seat of witchcraft in Europe, according to William Shakespeare – whose main works are plagiarised, according to two studies carried out by Cambridge University, England. However, nothing is ever simply light and dark; the grey area in the middle is ambiguous. Escape is very painful, but not impossible.

The problem is not with the creation, nor its unit manifestation of the individual. The problem with witchcraft lies with the secular who seek short-cuts for their life problems.

It is like not educating yourself when you were in the system, ending up with a low-paid dead-end job, and then longing for the material wealth of the intelligent, well-off and educated. In order to keep up with them, a very small proportion of the dead-end rob a bank; maybe kill in the process; and eventually get caught, and end up in prison.

Prisons are like witchcraft: emotionally brutal, escape-less, and sucking newcomers in. In subsequent births this type of seeker will automatically be placed into a scheme that allows ignorant, delusional meditation. The seeker eventually becomes a short-cutter in the process.

…and here is a warning…

Witchcrafters are found in each and every secular, religion, rite-ritual, dharma and divine arena.

Welcome to witchcraft…and you thought you were meditating!

Meditation without practicing humbleness is worshipping your own Ego.

And all bio-thought entities are engaged in 24/7 meditation.

Now that is a shock.

Genesis of Khalsa

It is a noble culture, as well as an intellectual utopia to build on the unseen, that intangible consciousness-architecture where showmanship is put aside and one faces the odds with confusion, chaos, complications, and contradictions while attempting to unravel the unfathomable.

Let’s start unraveling…

A cosmic-psyche has a tangible presence. That presence is consciousness. There is a separate consciousness template for each species. Any given consciousness is the lower manifestation of its governing cosmic-psyche. And each cosmic-psyche has a specific role to fulfill in creation.

The consciousness of a particular cosmic-psyche fulfills the requirements of the noble culture mentioned in the opening paragraph. Globally, we call the material manifestation of that consciousness Sikhism.

In this essay, I intend to share knowledge about Sikhism which Sikhs themselves have difficulty grasping and explaining. Events central to Sikhism fly in the face of widespread assumption that it does not give credence to mystical happenings and manifestations called forth by individuals. In fact, as I will go on to show, Sikhism has at times pivoted on mystical incidents expressly engineered by several of the ten Gurus.

One such example, which I have been writing about for almost forty years, centre on the events at Anandpur Sahib in 1699.

Various political and ruling factions have been able to hide evidence relating to this event that was once openly available, including the suppression of eye-witness accounts from the time, which the old-fashioned Sufi could still share if they wished.

The tenth Guruji was tasked with delivering a dutiful and responsible race that would provide global protection, and keep the Light of Balance from going out. So, at the end of March 1699, he invited Sikhs to a meeting at Anandpur Sahib.

What transpired at the meeting was shocking. To this day, Sikhs are unable to explain it, unable to reconcile in their minds what happened with what they think possible in the world. They have therefore conjured up lies and created a mytho-logical account of the event which presents the tenth Guruji as a trickster and a showman, a mere stage performer – all of which traits are antithetical to the very essence of Guruship.

The story goes that Guruji asked for Sikhs to step up who would be willing to give up their heads for the Guruji; that he whisked them away one-by-one out of sight of the congregation, and that he reappeared each time with blood dripping from his kirpan, asking for the next Sikh to pledge himself. The moral of the story is much like that which Kahlil Gibran writes about love, namely, to follow the Guru, lay oneself at his feet, though his ways may be incomprehensible. A similar interpretation is found in the Jewish Torah regarding Abraham’s sacrifice of his son.

Here is what actually happened in March 1699 at Anandpur Sahib….

On a stage and immersed in a deep, practical-samadhi, the tenth Guruji asked for a Sikh who would be willing to give up his head for his Guruji. A Sikh came forward, offering himself humbly. He walked on to the stage, and was directed to kneel down and bow his head execution-style, and with one swift move of Guruji’s sword he was decapitated. His body slumped, his head rolled around, blood spewed everywhere.

Guruji asked for another Sikh to step forward. Another decapitation followed.

In total, five Sikhs were decapitated on the stage at Anandpur Sahib that day.

Afterwards, Guruji moved towards a large metal bowl containing fresh water and recited invocation prayers. During his recitation, Guriji asked his second wife (he had three wives, and two of them bore him his four sons known as the Chaar Sahibzaade) if she had anything she wished to input. Accepting the invitation, Guruji’s wife added dried pure sugar to the water.

The fact of being a Guruji, and the creation-authority conferred upon such beings, combined to transform the sugar-water from simply being an object to having agency. This agency manifested in its authority over Death to stay the execution of the individual until their duty-responsibility has been fulfilled.

Guruji then knelt on the stage, and fused a head with the body lying nearest to it – not the body from which it had been originally parted. He administered the sugar-water – the material object infused now with life-giving agency – to the newly reconfigured body. The dead Sikh gained consciousness and recovered from his ordeal. He was now Pure, born of neither blood nor flesh. He was now Khalsa.

The procedure was repeated five times in total. When all had recovered, they were escorted off stage to wash and change their clothing. The five earlier decapitated, now reconfigured and breathing Sikhs, reappeared on stage in the now famous saffron attire of the Panj Piyare (the five Pure ones), wearing the five Ks of Khalsa.

[Note: please scroll down to the end of this essay for definitions of the five Ks and other terms, such as Guru, Sikh, Singh, Kaur, Khalsa]

Now came the turn of Guruji, Guru Gobind Rai, to kneel before the Panj Piyare and ask if they deemed him worthy to receive the sanctified authority of the sugar-water. They in response asked him what he would be willing to sacrifice. He agreed to four sacrifices; but these were deemed to be insufficient. It was only upon the offer of the fifth sacrifice that Guruji was administered the sugar-water by the Panj Piyare. And only then was he, like the Panj Piyare, accorded the name assigned to those bearing duty-responsibility: Singh. Guru Gobind Rai thus became Guru Gobind Singhji.

Whereupon, the sugar-water was renamed Amrit, its agency in conferring duty-responsibility to those consume it confirmed and thus sanctified. This means that whosoever takes Amrit is embarked upon the journey of becoming and thus fulfilling the role of a global protector. This was not understood by the masses gathered at Anandpur Sahib that day in 1699. Indeed, many thousands of men and women took Amrit that day, but they did so in the belief that it was an elixir and would liberate them. They did not fully comprehend the duty-responsibility which consuming Amrit would imbue them with over time.

The events at Anandpur Sahib that day in late March 1699 spread like wildfire.

The birth of the Khalsa, its foundation in life-revival – which as the facts related above illustrate was not strictly or only the case, though it was a significant part – spread fear in the minds of India’s Moslems.

Sikhs publicly abhor (white/black) witchcraft, and indeed any type of psychic ESP environment and practice. However, Sikhism has at various crucial moments pivoted on the psychic manipulation of matter, bending the rudimentary rules of creation applicable on this planet.

Islam on the other hand is rooted in awe of psychic machination, and values ESP more than divinity. It hones in on and beseeches psychic intervention, deeming it godly, Allah. However, Islam relies on anger mismanagement and ego-laced arrogance, and its adherents justify their actions as scriptural. But it must be remembered that the Koran mimics and mirrors the Torah, which in turn is not scriptural but is a set of guidelines which its own adherents regularly discuss and debate.

In order to counter the absolute value that Islam places on the psychic, over and above divinity, the Gurujis at critical moments employed the very principle of psychic environments to make a point. However, they never used the facility to protect themselves or cheat death, even though they had dominion over death. However, this changed, to a degree, as a consequence of the events that took place at Anandpur Sahib on the new moon in the last week of the month of March, now celebrated on the 13th or 14th of April.

Despite their fear, the Moslems were in awe of the Khalsa. And in war, when they were sure of death, they would seek out a Khalsa, to die at their hands. They did so in recollection of the indication by their Prophet of a coming race which he referred to as angels. These were the Khalsa.

Incidentally, I had the opportunity once of sharing these facts with a Japanese world war two veteran. He told me:

“We feared the Gurkha of course, but it was the Sikhs who evaded death time and again. We could never understand how at the very last moment a Sikh would evade death until, once his duty was accomplished, he could be killed. We put it down to kismet, luck, something like that; but we also viewed and accepted it as a form of zen shogun.”

Hazrat Mohammad, the prophet, the originator of the more fanatical version of the Hebrew faith, now called Islam, stated that a warrior-honest race will evolve to root out evil and protect goodness. He said, they will keep untrimmed beards, and untrimmed hair. Unlike seers, however, they will comb their hair not backwards but by bending forward at the torso and combing from the back of the head towards the forehead. They will be known for their honesty and truthful lifestyle. They will be seers from an arena above divinity, and they will have the consciousness termed duty-responsibility to protect them as and when needed. (Note – death itself is answerable to duty-responsibility, as the events of Anandpur Sahib described above testify to). They will suffer for their responsibility, a responsibility exercised for the greater good of the masses. and holding a grudge will not be in their makeup.

Old Islam resembles the Europe of today. We see Europe on its way to becoming an Islamic caliphate, choosing to wage endless and traumatic war upon the people of the Middle East, while supposedly showing their compassion by allowing the refugees it creates through such war to settle in Europe. Old Islam – or Mohammedism as it was then known – carried out a similar unceasing war on Aryadesh (now called India). The brutality re-invoked and re-established a protector race that in previous times had occupied the landmass of Europe (all but forgotten now except for the language influences it left behind). That protector race with its ideology of graciousness has, in current times, as in the olden times of its existence, come to be called Sikh.

Guys, the Sikh as a people have not yet delivered on their duty and responsibility. In times to come, when humanity faces certain extinction, the Sikhs will stand alongside others to defend against this but it will be the Sikhs’ contribution that will be the linchpin, that will allow humanity to survive.

People from three other races also hold this cardinal knowledge. Those races live in lands conquered and occupied by Europeans. For the safety of humanity, governance of those lands must revert back to the indigenous races. After that happens, it will take seven to ten generations for their psyche to realign with their past identity and knowledge, and they will be ready to share the Sikhs’ global responsibility and avert this planet from being wiped out. Only a release from the bondage of the present will provide the essential elements for the Sikhs, and then the Khalsa, to manifest a mechanism for our survival.

You cannot all become Sikh, let alone become Khalsa.

Meditation leads to samadhi.

Samadhi leads to practical-samadhi.

But none of this progression is possible without grace.

And grace? Well, it has to be earned.

To earn grace, you have to throw yourself upon the mercy of a Sadhu. You relinquish your life to a Sadhu at each birth. They may be vile, arrogant, whatever; but you must not judge them. An unseen authority will notice your sacrifice; and will send a divine mentor to teach, guide, and honour you with grace. The obstacles are unbelievable. You are set to fail. But it is not the passing or the failing that counts. The telling point is humbleness. Truth will only take you so far. It will not set you free. Humbleness will set you free.

The journey begins with humbleness.

Here are deeper definitions of Guru, Sikh, Khalsa, and the meaning of the five Ks.

GURU:

First, it ought to be clear from the fore-going depiction of events at Anandpur Sahib in 1699, and of Guruji’s actions there, that a Guru is not a teacher or an enlightener. It is an insult to Sikhs and to India more generally to apply such secularist descriptions to any guru, though these people and many others besides are daft enough to use the title – in its ridiculously false definition – and hope that the person thus conferred the name of guru will deliver them from the cycle of life and death… but as you may have guessed, there’s no chance of that actually happening.

What is more, secular people who refer to each other as guru inadvertently establish an ongoing bond with them whereby the one on the pedestal is obliged to drag the other into the unfathomable. Sounds good, right? But what it really means is that both are tied into to a contract where whenever one of them fails and falls down the selection-progression ladder – from human to animal or insect – the other will accompany them down there.

Call another a guru or jockey yourself into a position to be called a guru, and both of you will seriously inhibit your progress towards being free from the bondage of life and death …so, do not call another person a guru, and do not allow yourself be tagged guru either, is my advice here.

Having clarified what a Guru is not, let’s clarify what it is. Guru is an entity by whose intervention they who are at the apex of divinity attain moksha, albeit the lower level thereof. Guru at this junction is unseen, a sense-teaching entity, beyond the sound-light conundrum. One cannot meditate into moksha, as one can with divinity; one accesses and advances into moksha by invitation, or more usually by recommendation (what we otherwise call grace), hence the need for an intervening entity – the Guruji.

SIK-KH:

Sikkh is the actual and correct spelling for a Sikh when written in English. However, I will use the spelling Sikh for ease of comprehension.

Sikh is an analyser, scrutiniser and improver of every aspect of life, from the secular to the divine…yet they remain humble throughout.

Sikh, despite all the things you may have heard it described as, also refers to a realm above that of the divine. One of the tests of divinity is to be born and live one’s life in a secular household environment. The divine undergoing secular tests are currently born into Sikh households. Sure, divinity can be attained by the recluse – often thought of as the ultimate detached individual – but the more difficult test to be mastered is that of maintaining one’s stature and status while navigating the quotidian and mundane everyday tasks of the householder. Those of my position have seen many a person’s hard-won divinity unravel in such trying circumstances. It is not easy.

SINGH/KAUR:

Singhs and Kaurs are those who have chosen to practice a Sikh lifestyle in conjunction with the secular environment, and who do so without flinching from the challenges the secular may impose on their Sikh way of life. It is the ultimate test of detachment. Singh denotes male-energy; Kaur denotes female-energy (energy – shakti). Shakti itself has many layered definitions. As of course do Singh and Kaur.

KHALSA:

What about Khalsa? Well, it is not a name or label given to baptised Sikhs, as is universally thought. You cannot baptise the baptised. Rather, the consumption of Amrit, symbolic authority made material, confers upon the Sikh a duty-responsibility – which manifests in their new identification as Khalsa – which might more appropriately be thought of less as baptism than investiture. Baptism, insofar as it relates to Sikhism, refers for its part to the attunement of a being with Sikhism which then readies them for birth as a Sikh. Though it ought to be remembered (and this contradicts the previous statement to some degree), that being born into a Sikh family does not automatically indicate one’s attainment of Sikhism; though for the most part, being part of a practising Sikh household is a step in one’s progress towards awakening.

The Five Ks of Sikhism

Note: each of the following has multi-layered, more expansive, and deeper connotations and significances than those offered below. But the following will give you a basic initial insight into the five Ks of Sikhism.

KESH:

Tangled hair symbolises the emotional tangles of the mind that hinder one’s divine progress. The hair is detangled by the act of bending one’s head forward and combing the hair from that position, and thus symbolises the reminder to detangle the mind and it emotions. The movement of bending forward also lowers one’s head, and thus constitutes an act of humbleness too. Only detached humbleness untangles emotional entrapments.

KANGA:

The comb the Sikh wears in their hair. The teeth of the kanga signify, and remind one to use the mind’s thoughts to excavate for deeper and refined awareness from within one’s own antrkarna (soul) using the Atma. The Atma, as I have stated elsewhere and numerous times, is not the equivalent of the soul. The soul is the harmonised cooperation of the body’s internal organs to clear obstacles and allow for ever-increasing awareness, taking one from the lower disciplines of religion, rite-ritual, spirituality, and dharma into divinity and onwards into Sikhism.

KARRA:

The steel bangle, as it is universally referred to, the karra signifies deflecting the emotionality that hinders divine clarification. Once again, one uses humbleness to format a path from one to the other.

KIRPAAN:

The kirpaan has dual symbolism: forgiveness at the point of killing one’s foe, and the cutting edge of refined thought that is the basis from which one progresses into divine awareness.

KACHHA:

This signifies the refined, discriminating, and tranquil expression of all sexual emotions, that lead into higher realms of divinity.

Higher Meditation

Authentic air travel automatically involves travelling first class. Cattle class is akin to a priest claiming to be an atheist, championing liberalism, while frowning at the multitude of others’ sexual partners though not of course his own.

Haters, sadists and masochists appreciate the cold-blooded anti-liberal call to duty. Their condemnation, misunderstanding, frustration, and lop-sided praise shield acronyms where balance and fiction exist, but not to themselves.

Meditation similarly falls into two distinct groups: commercial meditation and higher meditation. Higher meditation would be air travel in first class, albeit that it is inaccessible to all but the selected, or indeed the elected, few.

Commercial meditation teaches various yoga postures, increasingly disconnected from accurate breathing, let alone correct breathing, and simultaneously claims to open the chakras.

It’s like saying from a male perspective, ‘I have a penis, and so an orifice, any orifice, will do’; or from the female perspective, ‘I have an orifice, and so any penetrating object will do’…and then claiming you’ve had the most exhilarating, deeply moving, and love-based orgasm. Orgasms are only meaningful if they are loving. Otherwise, they are physiologically satisfying and psychologically empty. That is precisely the difference between commercial meditation and higher meditation.

Wherever I turn, I witness cheap meditation. Laden with pomp, authority and pseudo-aloofness (implying detachment), cheap meditation is taught shamelessly, and practiced wholeheartedly. The naïve teach the ignorant. The ignorant lap-up the misguidance as if it were a gift from a God. Take kundalini yoga. When invoked and practiced, it invigorates the bio-energy system, creating good feeling. However, it also systematically erodes balance, creating mental and emotional imbalance, and leading to psychosis and psychotic behaviour.

Recently, I visited a place of worship where a university-aged kid was leading meditation. He was repeating a reverently deep word that should not be used and that has nothing to do with social meditation. On top of that, he was breaking the word into its syllabic parts, intoning the first upon inhaling and the second upon exhaling. He deemed this to constitute deep meditation.

No, sunshine, the combination of the reverently deep word in tandem with the type of breathing you were conducting and leading the congregation in is simply and straight-forwardly hyper-ventilation. Indeed, if you just repeated the word ‘one’ upon inhaling and ‘two’ upon exhaling then you would experience precisely the same heightened well-being as you assume to have reached via the two-breath invocation of the reverently deep word.

Increasingly, I witness Asian kids like this whipper-snapper at the gurdwara, their chests inflated in announcement of their educational achievement; these doctors and lawyers whose arrogance and vanity are breathtaking, and who assume their education confers authoritative excellence upon their every utterance, including anything relating to meditation and scriptural lore.

The way they act is like saying that because you work in a mango grove, which is at the same latitude where coffee is grown, you are a qualified and experienced barista.

In the same way, hyper-ventilation is not meditation. But everywhere education begets arrogant self-importance…I witness the same idiocy all over the world.

Let me elucidate.

In Sikhism, we have three prime words. All three words predate Sanskrit and are easily found in languages more ancient than Sanskrit. The words represent the moment of pre-creation, and they are conducive to as well as indicating the type and manner of coagulation of matter in a given dimension, and the actual zone that contains a group of dimensions.

Thus death – lifelessness, that state when a body is no longer locomotive – just like a solid mass of steel or anything else for that matter, is a tangible reality; it not only resonates with the hum or vibration of the three sacred words, but the sacred words are actually present therein. To put it very simply, those three sacred words are the bedrock of creation.

Ordinarywalas assume that death means evacuation of the three-word symmetry. No, it is the very opposite. The emptiness of space of a given galaxy, or the space galaxies occupy, exists because of the three-word symmetry. Death only means lack of vocal communication and organs at primeval rest. The presence of the three-word symmetry carries on albeit the body is cremated and ground into small dust particles. The change in physical shape does not denote the disintegration or disappearance or even the dissolution of the three-word symmetry; that it can take place at all is wholly dependent on the presence of the three-word symmetry.

Inhaling and exhaling breath in tandem with the invocation of the supreme word does not indicate a gift from the Gods.

In fact, all you have done is given your organs a good going over while remaining physically stationary. It is not meditation, let alone higher meditation.

Higher meditation requires life-long humility, humbleness and servitude repeated endlessly without seeking redemption in return. Eventually, after countless lifetimes as a doormat without any self-importance, an elite person is authorized to guide you. The tests become increasingly painful until you comprehend attachment and you stand as an observer of your own psychology. It is at this stage that meditation at its basic level begins.

Guys, to those of you practising commercial meditation, I say, ‘maintain your focus, as all these stages of internal introspection are stepping stones to higher integration, until you hopefully hit poised integrity, which may then trigger a response from the elite to perhaps take you under their wings.’

To the arrogant ‘look at me, I’m so educated’ doctors and lawyers (because it’s never the PhDs, engineers, astro-physicists and mathematicians who strut arrogantly) who purport to teach meditation my message is, ‘take a chill pill, for you are the classic idiots.’

Make no mistake, in slapping you down I have done you a great favour. I have introduced you to your own falsehood, in the hope you step back and begin a balanced introspection.

Good luck guys.

ESP and Baba Vanga

Extra Sensory Perception, a mouthful if ever there was one for something as simple as seeing, can also be described as ‘sight with fringe benefits’.

In my book Mischievous Mystic, (not in print – deemed too controversial), I expand on and delve deeper into the mechanism of ESP, and why ninety-nine percent of practitioners get it so wrong. In this article I demonstrate why ESP is not the all-seeing, all-knowing brigade-font of audiovisual information.

It will come as a shock to readers that ESP is very limited, with access closely controlled by its senior authorities. Of course, access increases as one moves up the ESP ladder. Shocking isn’t it, that ESP and advanced awareness are not too dissimilar to career progression?

And those ‘born’ with the proverbial ESP silver spoon in their mouth naturally get fast-tracked into the cushier responsibilities. Then, there are the likes of yours truly who is limited to being no more than a field worker in the industry. Oh, well, I suppose someone has to be the Indian. We cannot all be Chiefs, can we?

So what is the mystery about ESP?

Well, it is shrouded in lies, as promoted by the very ESP practitioners who want to create allure and mystery, beguiling ordinarywallahs into fear, respect, and adulation, and amassing financial benefit for themselves. And the ESP groupies happily spread ambiguous statements and attain infamy for their chosen ‘leader’, when their original plan was simply to secure fame for that ‘leader’.

What you need to know is that everything in creation is ESP capable. From the tiniest grain of sand, to the mega big-shot in the financial markets who manages to pick the right stock at the right time for maximum profit. Shedloads of money, and it is all down to basic ESP attunement? Well, I never!

If that is the case, why do ninety-nine percent get it so horribly wrong?

Because ESP is not there to assist or to provide a shortcut solution to life’s problems. Those problems are your reality, which you have to get through. And on top of that, ESP is not some God boon either. As for the whole, ‘Dear God…’ thing, let me set that record straight…well reasonably straight.

God, my dears, is not some fat slob with a beer belly who has over-indulged himself on Mrs God’s cooking. Nor is God some fat guy with gastrointestinal problems, rosy cheeks, and a ready smile, who overlooks each of your indiscretions. No. God, I am told by my seniors, is a tad more strict; and in any case, God is not involved in the minute running of your life. You may consider yourself to be more important than a grain of sand, but to ‘Dear God’ you and the grain of sand are exactly the same. Nevertheless, each minute, each breath, and any given moment of your life, is minutely controlled, but not by God, rather by the job-lot apprentice field workers. People like yours truly make their life as difficult as we possibly can. Well, why not? No one gave us a break. We had to do it the hard way.

It is the newbies, the job-lot apprentice field workers, who guide, change, challenge, and turn your life upside down, at their whim. And why do they do this? Because they can. Well, actually, they can’t, but they have to follow strict guidelines to create challenges of one type or another to test the ordinarywallahs, thus sorting the talentlesswallahs from the possiblewallahs…and you have probably understood that the talentless are the ninety-nine percent.

It is the job-lot apprentice field workers who give the smart-alecks wealth and power. But these are not so much gifts than the sternest of tests. Get caught up in your illusion of your own wealth and power, and you have signed up to life cycles of misery as a third-rate three-dimensional artifact always chasing your tail, rebirthing in the wealth and power circle.

Then, of course, poverty is an equal punishment. However, in poverty one is far more malleable to the idea that something greater exists, which one needs to search out and befriend.

Nevertheless, in each and every situation if you do not, in total honesty, practice humbleness and be genuine in your gratitude to the system called God, then rest assured that you will rebirth in lifestyles opposite in their admiration and adulation of God.

It is subservience to the God concept that allows future birth in its various guises (plant, animal, human-animal), which then eventually avails one (through linked association) of access to the symmetry from which you may get that one opportunity to secure promotion as a fledgling student, which may in turn allow you to become a job-lot apprentice field worker.

And who are these applicants, and what is their basic attribute?

Humbleness and piety, as demonstrated by Baba Vanga – a ‘gifted’ lady who lived from 31st January 1911 to 11th august 1996. Born in Bulgaria under the Ottoman Empire, she lived a life of simple piety. Many outlandish statements are attributed to her. For example, she is said to have claimed the beginning of a third world war lasting from 2010 to 2014; a nuclear bomb detonation in Europe; Muslims controlling Rome as a Caliphate; a saviour from the Far East, named after an orb in the celestial sky, who would build amongst other things a global road-rail link, while uniting religions under his guidance; the ascent of cybor humans; off-the-shelf organs leading to long age; contact with ‘humans’ from space. In fact, she announced that aliens were living among humans at her time. They came from the third planet from earth. Furthermore, animals would behave like plants and plants like animals. And the end of earth would be around the 3700s.

Ok, now let’s focus on one of Baba Vanga’s statements, and the context around it.

The person named after a celestial orb was an intriguing individual who lived during her time. He was born in Korea, had chosen to follow Jesus Christ, and the teaching in the Bible. He became a wealthy industrialist, moved to the United States, amassed even greater wealth, rubbed shoulders with American Presidents, and had ideas about a global road rail network. He pushed Christianity to the hilt, in the process establishing a new church.

Now, let us put Baba Vanga herself into context.

She lived at a time when her land was under occupation by the Ottoman Empire. Mohammedans (as they were called in those days) were brutal. A saviour in the form of a Christian, an indigenous person of Korea, Mr. Moon – wealthy beyond reason and promoting Christianity – fulfilled the ‘superman’ criteria. She claimed, it is said, that there would be a time in the future when Moslems (correct spelling of that time) would run Europeans out of Europe and set up a Mohammedan state there.

In moments of desperation people cling to Hope and his wife Wishful. In the same manner, Sikhs of today increasingly cling to Hope and Wishful, thinking that their kingdom will somehow be returned to them. Baba Vanga hoped too, however her utterances while coloured with some real facts were misread.

It is on the cards that Europe will become an Islamic continent. In many of my essays I have been at pains to point this out to the race-Europeans. However, fine-tuning circumstances may prevent this from happening.

For, governance or occupation has two faces. One is autocratic rule and the other is peaceful accommodation. Autocratic rule decays in time, leading to the eventual subjugation of the rulers, including mass death of the ruler-race. Peaceful rule/governance usually means that although the land is under occupation the indigenous have freedom to live their own life, custom and culture. In this instance, the overthrow of the ruler-race is organic, peaceful and purposeful.

For Europe to live a peaceful life, it would, beginning now, have to start negotiations for a successful handover of the continents under its illegal occupation to the residents of those countries who predated their arrival. In addition, Europe along with India, China, one Arab country, and Russia, will have to aid the re-formation of African countries. This gesture of maturity will remove the spectre of Islamic war and of a nuclear type weapon detonation on Britain, mainland Europe, north America and Australia.

Let me add some historical perspective. Scandinavian races, after their exploits, returned occupied land. India, which ruled and dominated Europe as well as most other parts of the globe, returned occupied lands. Sanskrit and modern Indian words are still in vogue in many European languages. India left the area, and the Caucasians occupied the land now called Europe. Yet, both the Scandinavian people and the population of India are admired and respected globally. Race-European can exercise a similar option. If not, then the writing is on the wall for a devastation beyond that which can be done using nuclear weapons. For, it is not a nuclear weapon that will scar the European mainland, but a weapon far more elaborate and lethal.

With respect to Baba Vanga’s indication of aliens living amongst us, there she is accurate. These Beings do not need a craft like ours to travel the galaxy or cosmic space. Their ‘vehicles’ do not have ‘lights’ and nor do they hover over cities or rural areas. They are invisible, until they choose to become visible. And when they do become visible they imitate the setting. Furthermore, they do indeed change their physical appearance to look like the main occupiers of a given area. And, no, they do not all take on the appearance of humans. To them, we humans are like the remote isolated communities who live in far-flung jungles and we who patronizingly find interesting. Similarly, to the aliens we are backwards, retarded and dumb, and they too patronize us with their interest. They value piety and humbleness; their heart functions close to an optimal best, whereas we are greedy and arrogant, and our heart functions far below ten percent of its capacity. And, no, I am not talking about the physical heart either, but our real heart.

Baba Vanga was cheeky enough to suggest the aliens living amongst us are from the third planet from earth. How very clever of her, to leave it so ambiguous.

If she had carried on improving the medium of ‘inner sight’ whilst operating out of the public limelight, eventually Baba Vanga would have been in a position to apply as a job-lot field apprentice in our world. More of whom follows later.

At this point, I should clarify that virtually every head of organised or fly-by-night god-associated clubs never attain the basic qualities that allow them to master humbleness or piety. They are an excellent example of arrogance and ego masquerading as ‘deity’ on earth.

Now that the basic foundation has been detailed, I will endeavor to make sense of how ESP actually works:

How many of you have worked as, or have at least seen on the silver screen, air traffic controllers (ATC) at work? I assume all of you are familiar with the job they do, to some degree. Now, if an ATC was directing a passenger jet, only to realise that the communication was one-way, whereby they could hear the pilot but not the other way around, you’d assume that panic would set in in the mind of the ATC.

The ATC realises, in this scenario, that the plane will hit a mountain whose visibility is currently obscured by low-hanging clouds in three hundred miles. He also realises from what the pilot tells him that the instrument panels in the plane aren’t functioning accurately. The pilot has no idea what awaits him and his passengers. The plane is heading for a disaster. What can the ATC do?

Like any good silver screen hero, the ATC gets into his 4×4 and drives at breakneck speed, covering one hundred miles in twenty minutes to reach the danger zone. Then he climbs an adjacent mountain to that which the plane is heading for, and holds a placard aloft directing the pilot to change course. Our ATC hero has done all of this in the hope that the mountain he is atop will, like the danger-mountain, at the right moment be cleared of clouds so that the pilot can read the warning sign.

On the silver screen such heroism may well work, but in real life what are the chances of it doing so?

How do you cover one hundred miles on your average motorway, and then climb a fifteen-thousand foot mountain, in twenty minutes? And what assurance have you that the warning sign you’re using to communicate the plane’s imminent danger is going to be seen, let alone read?

It’s all a tad unrealistic, you will agree.

But such is precisely the woe of all ESP practitioners.

ESP practitioners know things, but they are not given access to amend the design of a given template. This is why in my case although I know far more than I share, my hands are tied. I must remain a silent observer to a large degree, responsible only for indicating impending disasters, such as that of yet another human wipe-out, because the template allows me to do so. The template is not a consciousness per se. It is a template. The seniors who mastermind the entire shooting gallery are the ones privy to the outcome they seek.

Our existence on this third-rate iron-ore rust bucket that we so proudly call Mother Earth – without whom we could not exist as corporeal beings, but whom we rape and violate for personal wealth anyway – is a punishment and correction block from which release is possible only if one practices humbleness and piety, in each and every situation.

Guys, the reality is that you are here to be used by others. The users get to extend their stay in this penitentiary while you, the used and abused, get an earlier parole.

And how do I know all of this? Because I have the advantage of ESP.

Fat lot of good it does me, as no one is going to pay a blind bit of notice to what I have to say.

However, I have done my bit, and each time I share the warning and the impending disaster, my parole date is brought a tad nearer…thanks to the mineral-excavating greed-men.

Human wipe-out will occur because humans are excavating valuable minerals the planet needs to deflect the sun’s harmful rays. She needs those minerals even more badly then humans do.

But do the greedy humans care?

Not a jot.

Hence, the impending wipe-out.

And what can ESP do about this?

Nowt.

Contemplation, Meditation, and Samadhi

This essay comes in response to feedback on my essay (13th December 2015) entitled “Sikhs and Meditation”. It was noted that I left elements unexplained, shrouded in ambiguity. Indeed, this was deliberate because field workers at my level are constrained in terms of what they are permitted to divulge.

Field workers with my level of responsibility are tasked with aiding the development of a seeker’s inner awakening, and we do by giving indications and pointers. Seldom do we impart precise instructions. The reason for this is that we may only operate within set parameters, and to overstep our boundaries is to invite demotion – no questions asked – by those charged with examining our conduct and the content of our guidance, who may do so under disguise as seekers themselves.

So if I was vague in “Sikh and Meditation” it was intentional.

Part of the reason why those at my level are policed arises from the discrepancy between what we see and what you see. We have, at times, unparalleled access to memories encased within creation which you would normally reference as past, present and future. That which you call the future, you perceive as unfathomable, unpredictable, unformed, shrouded in unknowability though hovering like a cloud on the horizon, subject to change and react to any given stimulus.

To speak of the future is, in your conception of things, to embody unreliability. But once the future has come to pass and shifts into the category of the real, whether of past or present, you can see that which we at my level already know. Namely, the future is a precipitate of all that has happened and is happening, and more so it is implicated in – and a co-determinant of – that which forms the past and the present.

The future is not awaiting expression or fulfillment, it has already expressed and fulfilled itself.

To put it simply, the future is not a state of becoming. It has become.

The interaction and the co-existence of past, present and future (to use the categories with which you are most acquainted) is a cornerstone of Sikhism and of Vedanta philosophy. We address the pool of interactive awareness of past, present and future – that which you imagine as distinct temporalities bound by a relationship of teleology and process – as the Akashi Records.

The Akashi Records posit that past, present and future are encompassed within the frame of creation and non-creation, which contrary to the way you understand them are not distinct but are a particular kind of singularity.

We might say the same about the concepts of beginning and end – these have to be seen as a process of movement from one to the other, yet like past, present and future, like creation and non-creation, they are in fact one and the same. Beginning and end are simultaneously themselves and each other.

If I apply this to Sikhism, as a good Sikh (which I am not – recall, I am the not so terribly good Sikh!) I ought to adhere to and believe in the concept of the Akaal – the formless. What Sikhs fail to grasp is that the formless is not form-less; rather, it has a presence. In fact, it comprises a multitude of layers, a set of strata beyond whatever formless designation we impute to it in our minds.

The Akaal is not itself formlessness, but encapsulates the formless, whereupon we cognize that both Akaal and the formlessness it references are entities. They are not nothing, they are clearly something. (Note to Sikhs – this point is stated categorically in the Sri Guru Granth Sahibji by none other than Guru Nanakdevji – please locate the actual stanza).

Reverting to creation and non-creation. These are governed by karma. By this I do not mean the action-reaction, cause-effect thing you call karma, these being more accurately definitions of samskar (a sub-stratum of karma). No. Karma is the qualitative, not the quantitative, it is how the flow from a portal is governed, it is not the outflow itself. Karma governs the outflow, which when it coagulates forms creation.

To the ordinarywallahs, fixed on the notion of the social contract and our obligations within it, and to poets, who parlay the often sad and painful consequences of chasing after one’s desires, karma serves a particular and much-needed function to keep us on the straight-and-narrow as well as to romanticise the fall-out when you fail to do so.

However, the outflow which karma governs is itself already embedded in samskar, that is, it is already endowed with action-reaction and cause-and-effect, whose quantities are relative to the dilation of the portal. Hence, creation and non-creation are one complete segment of an expression from a given portal, which in turn has various dimensions, which are enclosed in zones. The zones interrupt, mingle with and travel through one another, while maintaining their individual integrity and unique vibration.

When you look out into the night sky, you see blackness, while those at my level see light. You see emptiness, we see creation and systems.

But back to “Sikh and Meditation” and the charge of vagueness that was the response of some to the essay. I deliberately and overtly glossed over the stratum of what you call meditation – but which those at my level know as contemplation, meditation and samadhi. The detail I gave in the essay was prerequisite to embarking on and achieving a state of contemplation. A starter-for-ten, if you like, where the vexed (and vexatious) relationship between pessimism and internal patriotism are explored.

You will recall that I outlined the rungs of advancement as progressing from diet-based, through thought-based and emotion-based, to the realm of humility and servility. These rungs are the reality to which you must become attuned, become one with internally, and then live outwardly, before contemplation commences.

Contemplation is not, as you would have it, internal debate of ideas and the suchlike.

Contemplation is not the place for conjecture. Conjecture must already have been gotten out of the way, dealt with, in the course of the rungs of advancement mentioned above, and through the process of attunement practiced first internally and then externally.

Contemplation is total opinionlessness. Opinionlessness is in turn the canvas on to which the depths of realism are ready to be drawn with broad brushstrokes, but one awaits intervention from another for this to happen. This other is duty-bound to you; it is their responsibility to trigger your initial entry into and beyond contemplation. They could be a person who makes an observation in passing or they could be your formal educator, a teacher whose presence is less transitory and more enduring.

My indication is that the vast majority of secular beings are not ready for contemplation let alone meditation. Many applicants sit cross-legged and announce to onlookers that they are in fact assuming the hallowed lotus posture. Sorry to break it to you, but what you do doesn’t even come close to the lotus posture. Every image you have seen of it is wrong, a falsity.

So what hope have you of entering contemplation, forget meditation and samadhi, when your knowledge of the lotus position is wrong? Especially when you do not even know that correct posture and joga (yoga as you call it) come after, and never before, one has attained contemplation, and that it is the latter that leads you into deeper inner resonance and joga ability.

Oh, and by the way, what on earth is a downward-facing dog?!?!

Idiots, certified to teach idiots, re-label postures in accordance with their own (or borrowed) brand of stupidity; and they ensure and enable the development of nothing more than inner darkness in those they purport to teach.

I cannot indicate strongly enough that meditation is dangerous.

Meditation is the pathway to your introduction to your inner light.

Meditation is the pathway to your introduction to your inner darkness.

At a secular level, you will never be able to differentiate between light and darkness. From within your present level of comprehension both are godlike.

Be warned and tread carefully.

On revising scripts and calendars: An open letter to Maharani Preneet Kaur of Patiala

Improvements, revisions, and modifications are deemed a necessity lest an academic is pigeon-holed as a non-entity. Applause of a newer schism is acceptable, but to be ignored or deemed unremarkable is the ego-death nail to an academic.

The above paragraph is borrowed from my essay ‘Changes to Alphabet’. In that essay I discuss how English letters evolved, being in some cases joined together, eventually either to be dropped or replaced. The essay took shape after a Sikh academic from North America descended on this little island and delivered a polished, well-rehearsed gobbledygook word-speak. A mooncalf let loose simply because he could deliver a polished talk. As for the content – I was left waiting for content, but it never arrived. What I heard instead was nonsense packaged with the panache of a campus novelette.

The problem with revisionists and academics is that in their desire to ‘be someone’ they attain Idiocy. Many who read my work are aware of the definition that we, from our background, use to identify ‘stupid’ – an individual who has read five books on a given subject and thinks that makes for expertise. An idiot takes that belief to a whole new level and begins expounding the ‘idealism’ therein.

Sikhs make for a great anthropological study. A recent history. An evolving culture. An old cultural heritage whose source is lost in antiquity. Sikhs are consciously and constantly redefining themselves. However, their psyche repeatedly pulls them towards their inner source – into events and time that current conscious memory has forgotten …my kind of a big deal, really.

Yes, I am privileged to be born a Sikh (each birth in a given faith and culture has a reason – the subject for different essay), and I love studying Sikhs. Doing so is primarily for my own benefit in that I explore, examine, explain, and understand myself; and this then allows me to better understand how established cultures, languages, and scripts evolved.

Take the example of the Sikh calendar.

Sikhs have been in haste to separate themselves from ‘Hinduism’, which to this moment they consider a curse on their identity. Yet, as I have openly and vociferously explained, Sikhism precedes Hinduism by 150 years or so. In such an environment limited knowledge can be a dangerous thing. The so-called educated elite, those who scraped through to the Ivy League institutions in the United States, were unable to explain why the birth of Guru Gobind Singhji, the tenth Sikh Guru, sometimes has two birthdays in a calendar year, sometimes one, and sometimes none. They decided the fault lay with the Hindu calendar and Hindu mischief, and they wallowed in their complete ignorance of the facts behind such things.

This educated elite were/are so dumb that they could not explain that the phenomenon of Guruji’s birthday happening once, twice or not at all in a year was due to the fact that the Gregorian calendar starts almost two-thirds of the way into the Vedic (Sikh) calendar. Thus in the Sikh calendar, Guruji’s birthday indeed happens only once a year. Nor could they explain that all Sikh, Vedic, Hindu and Buddhist dates are aligned with and in keeping with the organic function of planet Earth, and are based on the cycle of the moon. In this cycle, dates change annually: the organic conveying a procession that is neither mechanical nor machine-precise. Being organic, it requires grey matter to comprehend its function, the very grey matter that is fast becoming extinct due to the lazy reliance on, and utilization of, computers.

Hell, even I have become a victim of computers, for I have forgotten how to spell basic words, relying totally on spell-check. On top of that, I am fast losing my in-built sense of direction, which I have always used to sense the position of the sun or where the cardinal points of the earth lie. I have become utterly dependent on GPS systems to get around.

To revert, the USA-educated elite who graduated in one type of ‘ology’ or another, rather than use their commonsense or become masters of astrology or astronomy, bleated endlessly and ran down the Sikh hierarchy and authority at Amritsar. They called them illiterate and rural and accused them of not moving with the times or being modern enough. The global rolling stone pressure exerted by the rest of the expatriate ‘educated’ Sikhs forced the Amritsar authority to sanction a study.

Sod’s law, where idiots reign more idiots mushroom to champion the new idiotic thought.

A Sikh lecturer in Canada took hold of the reins, aware that if he could muster enough money for a seat at his university he would become a professor. He duly raised funds on the back of the emotional outcry over the Sikh calendar, and in his spare time he ‘studied’ astrology and astronomy.

Idiot can only lead idiots. The idiot led. Idiots followed. The authorities in Amritsar voiced their objections to the ideas taking root, only to be called rural (an insult in India denoting backwardness).

The idiotic professor, having secured his chair, became a chameleon, changing colour to suit his surroundings. He touched a raw nerve and exploited the belief that Sikhs were being misled by Hindus. The Hindus, he exhorted, have been manipulating the calendar since the beginning of time, and they caused the demise of Buddhism in India. He further claimed that the Hindus have every intention of overpowering Sikhism and turning it into a branch of Hinduism just as they did with Buddhism. He conveniently leaves aside the fact that Buddhism ebbed out of India and flourished in Greater India, Myanmar and beyond, simply because this suited its emotional requirements.

The Sikhs bought into the myth he spouted. The masses loved his delivery. After all, he was a professor at a Canadian university. One does not become a professor at a western university without deep powerful knowledge.

Wow. Deep powerful knowledge. Professorship! What next? Sun, shine, backside – and hey presto, a professorship!

The professor went on to detail how in 13,000 years January would become June, and June would become January, if Sikhs followed the Hindu calendar. All of this was down to the cunning Hindus and their calendar, insidiously mocking and subverting time.

All however was not lost. He had an answer to the problem. A knight in a shining armour he was for the Sikhs.

His solution?

That the Sikhs ditch the Hindu calendar. For, Sikhs are not slaves of Hindus. Instead, Sikhs should take up a solar-based calendar, the Gregorian calendar in effect.

Err, excuse me, is that not swapping one slave master for another? Never mind me, I’m just splitting hairs. Did you get that pun? Splitting hairs…and me, a Sikh!

The educated Sikhs clamoured for the company of the saviour professor. An alien Guru had descended on Sikhism from a university in Canada.

I recall how I stood alone and apart from the braying crowd on the issue. Nobody wanted to listen to facts when they could instead organise Sikhism’s separation from Hinduism, finally freeing themselves from those they believed were their progenitors. Nobody at the time wanted to hear or accept that Hinduism was invented 150 years after Sikhism. A minor detail, irrelevant, they told me.

So, the Sikhs recreated their calendar, throwing it in the faces of the very Gurus who had accepted the tradition of the Vedic calendar. The very same Gurus whose written word in Guru Granth Sahib Ji they themselves deem sacrosanct, were dismissed out of hand as a mirage, along with the calendar dates cited within the Sri Guru Granth Sahibji, because it suited the ‘educated’ Sikhs to do so.

The wonderment of the new Sikh calendar flew in the face of commonsense and reason. It gave Sikhdom a single shared date on which to celebrate the enthronement of one Guruji and the cremation of the preceding Guruji.

Educated idiots at their excellent idiotic best.

But, hey, at least the calendar separated Sikhs from Hindus. Never mind that the dates of events were now totally out of sync with reality, and were not in keeping with the monthly, lunar-cycle based prayers set forth in Sri Guru Granth Sahibji. You see, for all their denial about astrology, Sikhs in fact conduct prayers at the new moon as well as at the full moon, as set in the Sri Guru Granth Sahibji. But since the Vedic traditional cycle month, as accepted in the Sikh scriptures, starts one third of the way into the Gregorian calendar – or to put it accurately, the Gregorian calendar starts two thirds of the way into the Vedic calendar – the advent of the new Sikh calendar overthrew many a traditional event.

The basic fact which the Sikhs would not accept from me was that the alien Guru Professor from the Canadian university had misled. He did not share the information that the 13,000 year astrological process is in fact only half a cycle, and that when the full cycle takes place, after 26,000 years, June would again fall in June. But, hey, that’s a minor omission, as long as the Sikhs are able to cut their ties to Hindus. That the Hindus evolved after the Sikhs was another truth unacceptable to the Sikhs at the time of this debate.

When are we taking about? 1998.

Almost 20 years on, I am pleased to share with you that Sikhs are getting around to ditching the new calendar. In time, it will be totally ignored.

But, if you think a lesson has been learned by the Sikhs as a result of this debacle, hell no!

For now we have Maharani Preneet Kaur of Patiala, an MP there until 2014, who has funded, via a ‘Local Area Development’ scheme, the ‘Advance Centre for Technical Development of Punjabi language, Literature & Culture’, at the Punjabi University of Patiala.

Her Royal Highness Maharani Preneet Kaur is an excellent example of an apologist ignorant of real facts, who supports an idea as long as it sounds good and gives her credit in some way, shape or form.

The first point to note is that after more than half a century of independence, people like Her Royal Highness do not have the presence of dignity, mind, or credibility to use the correct spelling of Panjab or Panjabi, insisting instead on using the ignorant Anglo-Saxon spelling of Punjabi or Punjab.

So, what should I expect from her involvement other than ignorance masquerading as fact, and the advancement of false knowledge?

The study group has under the patronage of the Maharani announced on its website that a new set of letters has been added to Punjabi/Panjabi.

Excuse me, since when did Panjabi (Punjabi) become a separate script from Gurmukhi, (its original name) which was formulated by the Sikh Gurus, and completed particularly by the second Guruji, Guru Angaddevji, under instruction from Guru Nanakdevji, thereby making it sacrosanct? Panjabi is not a separate script from Gurmukhi. They are one and the same. Yet, Her Royal Highness, out of sheer ignorance, or desire for importance like the educated idiots, has allowed her name and prestige to be connected to a mess very much like that of the 1998 Sikh calendar change.

The argument she and her acolytes make is that as Sikhs interact on the global stage, so they adopt new foreign words, which in turn requires that Panjabi (Punjabi) create new alphabet letters to deal with them. Ok, let us examine their argument.

I have yet to come across a similar example in any of the European languages, where foreign words beget new letters in the alphabet. Even in Magyar, the language of Hungary, a language entirely separate from its neighbours and which is spoken by only 10-12 million people, new words find a resonance and are integrated within the existing vocal context and written spectrum. There is no inferiority complex requiring that the word be pronounced exactly as it is in its original language, or that new alphabet letters be arbitrarily created to pay such unnecessary homage.

The Anglo-Saxon spelling and pronunciation of the majority of Indian towns, cities and landmarks did not require race-Europeans to re-examine their own script to accommodate these Indian names and terms. To this day, I do not know what Punjab is or what it means. I know what Panjab is. But Punjab? No idea, other than a deliberate desire to insult the Sikhs by mispronouncing the name of their country.

Jaggernaath is a Vedic term limited to indicating a large rolling-wheeled mechanism that carries a particular Vedic, now Hindu, object of reverence and worship. Indian maturity and sensibility would never consider or allow the term to be used in any setting other than that. Anglo-Saxons abused the word and its connotation and designation. They changed its spelling to fit into English alphabetic constraints, whereupon it was spelled ‘juggernaut’, and came to mean a large-wheeled lorry carrying any kind of cargo including meat, whereas its function and name had originally referred to a conveyance limited to religious and faith-based use only.

Bombay. A word which people of my father’s generation and those before him found insulting, but which they were forced to use by the British. How on earth could the (arrogant) British not pronounce Mumbai? Instead, they overcame their own inferior self-worth through intimidation, bullying, and threats of exclusion from mainstream affairs, and forced Indians to adopt the new spelling and pronunciation of Mumbai. Hence, Bombay.

Avtar. The actual English spelling is meant to be Av-v-tar. Above the first ‘A’ is a diacritical mark that requires that the following character be pronounced twice. Yet the Anglo-Saxons initially insisted on pronouncing it as Avta. The ‘r’ would remain silent. Then the pronunciation in western America changed it to Av-a-taar. How on earth does Avataar spell Avtar?

Yoga/Joga. Yoga is very much older than Sanskrit, but is used in pure Sanskrit. Regardless, in all north Indian languages it has always been pronounced as Jog or Joga. The word Joga is used in Sri Guru Granth Sahibji by the Sikh Gurus. So, now, will Her Royal Highness champion the removal of the word Jog/Joga from north Indian speech because the Europeans are not familiar with the word and refuse to consider its usage? Europeans were initially introduced to the word Jog/Joga in the nineteenth century and it is found in the literature of that era. But imperial self-consciousness and lack of self-worth meant that the word had to be changed to Yoga, which the Europeans found to their consternation existed in pure Sanskrit.

In Panjabi we have a very soft ‘t’, a medium ‘t’, and a hard ‘t’. The English lexicon to date refuses to accommodate the need for the real three dimensational Panjabi letter ‘t’.

So, why, oh why, do the Panjabi and the Indian ruling elite think they have to construct new letters to accommodate words from around the world, in order to speak them as the natives do, lest they be accused of lacking ‘modernity’, when nobody else does?

If the Panjabi educated ruling elites’ sense of self-worth is measured by their servile need to create new Gurmukhi characters, then I invite them to huddle together and create a totally new alphabet for social, commercial and enterprise usage and to leave Gurmukhi alone as a language and a script solely for Sikh religious use.

If she is to be engaged in anything, let Maharani Preneet Kaur of Patiala sponsor and support that kind of activity. Her current course of action focused on denigrating Gurmuki/Panjabi script – and seemingly reinforced by the common person in Patiala who lionises her (but who those of her ilk cannot see as anything other than beggers and spongers) – is akin to the Nazi destruction of German literature in 1933.

Leave the gift of Gurmukhi alone.

Your Royal Highness Maharani Preneet Kaur of Patiala, please stop interfering in an excellent language originated by the Sikh Gurus, unless you feel you are better equipped and ought to supersede them. Your Royal Highness, you are making a colossal mistake. A mistake so gross in its ramifications, that it will be a harbinger of the demise of Sikhism as it stands.

Your Royal Highness, consider yourself advised…or reprimanded.

Your choice.

You choose.

Sikh and Meditation

Throughout this life’s tenure, I have witnessed the goodwill intentions in all living species. Such intentions turn out, however, to be unbelievably short-lived, especially when confronted with the self-preservation that comprises the core element of most species’ existence. That said, outright hatred seems to be a trait specific to no species except humans.

As I have developed, I have come to recognise that the disparity between humans and other species, the leap from self-preservation to hatred, has myriad causal factors. I also am aware that neutralizing the ethereal cloud would enable the human bio-system to express and exercise balanced caring behaviour – goodwill, in other words. I also know, however, that it is unfortunately impossible to effect the neutralization necessary to make this happen.

Yet, people do want to escape the iron-ore prison cage of this planet; they do long for escape routes out of the straitened conditions and structures that poison their goodwill with hatred. Meditation is the means by which to achieve this goal. And Sikh meditation, in particular.

So, what’s the problem?

The problem is this: meditation is the proto-theorists’ unpolished sculpture; a figurine poem personified as a satirical memory of holier preservation, misunderstood by all except itself.

The point missed by all is this: mediation is a living entity. It is a life-form. It has its own boundaries, its own likes and dislikes. Let me give it a gender, and then it will make sense.

Meditation is female. She is demure, seldom raises her eyes, communicates subtly, suffers willingly, and never complains. Meditation is always accommodating, never demanding. She cannot be enjoyed through brute force; nor seduced by any means. She decides upon whom she will shower affection, if at all. But if you are not standing in line, along a path that she may pass, then you have zero chance of experiencing her.

Let’s face it, if meditation was yours to have as and when you choose, then you would all be the Buddhas and the Guru Nanakdevjis of this planet.

In what follows, I endeavour to explain the whys and wherefores of meditation; and in the process, I introduce you to the higher echelons of Sikh meditation. I do so through a combination of facts and analogy, having long realised that tangible explanations that people can readily relate to drive the point home better than any regurgitation of throw-away scriptural lines ever could.

The human species is divided into three groups. The topmost group comprises the sexually unmoved. The other two groups are the gays and the straights, the latter comprising the ‘straight darwinists’ and ‘straight deists’ (SaD).

SaD males know where Antarctica is, but none wants to go there. As in life, so in love-making: men have zero interest in acquainting themselves with or understanding the clitoris. They know it exists, but it does so as an abstract, an ephemeral thing even. As with the clitoris, so with meditation. And women, mimicking men, miss the point too; they also fall foul in their endeavours to even recognise where the essence of meditation hovers about them in order to establish contact, engage in communication, and eventually become its resident.

To enter meditation you need to experience death. In fact, you need to die. Death followed by cremation is the dissolution of all internal emotional, physical, and psychological connections. The psyche has to die, or if you prefer, be ‘liberated’. Individuality has to die, (or merge) into the greater individuality. ‘You’ must not exist. It is not enough not to fear non-existence. You must become non-existent.

At their apex, the Advanced Beings (now a distant memory) developed several methods to try and achieve self-understanding. When Guru Nanakdevji assumed the responsibility that others before him had failed to comprehend, many of these Advanced Beings took birth during his life period in order to try and move beyond their own attained statuses, into a more refined arena. To be part of his entourage they had to accept Guru Nanakdevji’s test of social integration coupled with social detachment.

The initial Sikhs were extremely advanced beings. They all belonged to one particular set or type of meditation: dangerous, frightening, and capable of leading to your demise. The first time practicing such meditation is very scary indeed. A group of Sikhs forced me in my younger days to show them this form of meditation and to put them through the process. When I reached the end stage of the first level, the idea facing them made some of them scream, while others were deeply frightened, and the rest visibly shaken. Never again have I allowed an unqualified group to experience the same.

Here I am going to introduce you to the lowest rung, the initial base, of the old Sikh meditation regime. It is not in fact different from most meditation techniques. Of course, I am not going to share how to recognise the meditation cloud about you. That would be irresponsible and dangerous. People allocate some of the most absurd attributes to meditation. You have no idea how fatal meditation can be. It is not peace, love and lentils, where hippies wear open-toed sandals and make love to their own long beards, and where women skip in the summer breeze in flowery full-length flowing skirts and cheesecloth blouses sans bras and their hair in braids. No. Meditation is a loaded gun. And one does not leave a loaded gun lying around.

The rungs of advancement in meditation are diet-based, thought-based, and emotion-based, in this order. Eventually one enters the humility and servile base. I have called it ‘rungs of advancement in meditation’ but none of this is meditation. It is preparation, the digging of the foundation. Meditation hasn’t even started yet. In fact, you are pre-programmed to fail if you attempt meditation since none of this preparatory work has been done, and which would itself take several decades to complete. So, although you can see the rainbow …that is all it is and will remain: a rainbow, a pathway, a map marked with a big ‘X’, but with no clue as to which spot on the planet the ‘X’ refers.

Now do you appreciate why meditation always fails?

People assume meditation is about finding peace or calmness: ‘I am balancing myself’, or ‘I have centered myself’, or best of all, ‘I enter the light’.

What?

What ruddy light are you talking about? When I am in a mischievous mood, I ask people who say these things whether they have ever met a blind person and have ventured to ask them if they have seen the ‘light’. The question is, how would a blind person recognise light? This is one of the misnomers of my environment. A sure-fire way we differentiate between the wannabes and the rare genuine article. The light we refer to is not light per se. You either experience it or not. Those who experience it communicate with each other through the medium of light. So those at my level know who is connected to the light and who is not. But, hey, why undermine the wannabes? At least they are not enthusing each other to kill for the sake of self-importance just because the ‘other’ is different.

Meditate and Improve Finance

 

The latest fad in the financial markets is meditation to improve finance. This fad is about fifteen years old now. Each year a new adventurer arrives on the scene scamming the financial centres with the latest newly learned meditation technique to enhance wealth. Glossy literature is sent, fishing for a taker within the HR department, which will either invite or reject the promised idea. So, the question is: Can meditation help you gain a fatter income, or just do enough to stabilise your problem?

The problem with new adventurers, upon returning after ‘finding themselves’, is that they do not understand that meditation can poison everything. Defenders of meditation, a group of biased and radical self-censors, over-rationalise their irrational creativity as if they were Dr Zhivago, and as if watching men die is all part of self-realisation. Infused with the culture of outlandish hipsters, marinated in meditation, they assume that it is a sure-fire way to amass easy money. After all, greed is rock-and-roll. A philosophy so old, that the two oldest professions are pushed to the limits of a falsely assumed apotheosis. Greed is that powerful.

As a German psychologist, reluctant to admit his knowledge is based entirely on Sanskrit, would say: Avtar, enough of the flowery words, just get to the end note, please. But, hey, Avtar loves and excels in nothing else if not word foreplay. So word foreplay is how this essay too will unfold…ok, perhaps, this time maybe it will be a quickie. But do indulge me, please, requests Avtar.

So, how, if at all, can mediation help you with your finances?

The first point to remember is that you are born into a template. It is set in place by your ancestors. It cannot be changed, amended, broken, or replaced. This is the first truth of meditation. If meditation was the panacea to lack of wealth don’t you think India, a master race of meditators, would be the wealthiest on this planet? So, the first truth of meditation is that it will not attain for you that which fate – the template you’re born into – has not designed for you.

Now, if you can come to terms with the reality that this is your lot in life, you have moved up one rung of self-understanding. Not self-realisation, just self-understanding, which is a fantastic privilege, since it allows you to calm down, take a step back and rationalise what may now be possible to achieve. The flights of fancy have been set aside. You are now a new beginning. Your new self-discovery is far more realistic than the allure of the silver-screen greed-quickie you dreamt of. For, your desire for mega wealth makes you nothing more than a prostitute, used and abused by the master wheeler-dealers to make a massive financial killing for themselves. Your success or failure is not their problem, nor is it a concern to their inner self. They have no shame. You are a commodity: expendable, a meaningless piece of fresh meat to be dined out on, then thrown away with the rest of the uneaten food on their plate.

So, you have learned a truth: that your lot in life will remain as it is now. Meditation will not secure for you whatever it is you so desperately want.

Yet, anecdotal evidence exists where members of the financial market maintain that an hour long, early morning meditation allowed them to focus and attain better results at work for both themselves and their clients. Can it be true? And if it is true, then how and why?

Let me begin with the basics. You are wired up a certain way well before your birth, contained within a restrictive field of biological DNA ancestors. You are the sum total of your own previous engagements as a corporeal Being and of your ancestors. Each of us is wired just like any machine, to function in a particular market place and in a limited manner. The internal components can be identical, the layout and connection of each can be identical, but their functionality can, and is, usually limited or controlled by a pre-determined strategy.

Take the example of a mobile handset. The more you pay, the greater the privileges you get; while somebody who pays the minimum tariff using an identical handset will have several services blocked. Humans are similarly wired, and for generations. Thus, the cannon fodder remains the cannon fodder, while the sods at the luxury end remain so until the cows come home.

Meditation allows you to come to terms with this fact.

But what else can meditation do for you?

More than 20 years ago, financial market individuals would seek me out, and I held meditation classes for them. One among them was a woman who was popular, welcoming, and had a warm open-hearted personality. It was clear that she would reach heights denied to others. Before attending class she would stop off at a restroom. I asked her why she needed to visit the restroom prior to meditation. Before she could say anything, I answered the question myself. Shocked at my insight she admitted to having an unbelievably high sex drive and a constant need to masturbate during the day; and she admitted that her financial decision-making improved drastically after each session. So, what then did she imagine meditation would contribute to her career success? The same as meditation: better decision making and management, she replied. When I told her meditation would not do that, and that in fact her sex drive was the reason for her intuitive success, she felt rejected, as if I considered her unworthy of meditation. It took me several sessions to reassure her that meditation is not an inductor of a righteous, balanced, non-purgatory state. Meditation is a means to an end. It is a mechanism that allows clarity by defusing the mind of competing thoughts which might otherwise confuse decision-making. That is all meditation at the basic level can do and does.

Guys, people in the financial market are designed to accumulate wealth. In fact, if they placed bets on a donkey, chances are they will have better returns than Joe Bloggs down the road. That is a reality. Yes, of course, they can practice meditation and claim it helps to detach them from the sheer endless mass of information hitting them from all sides, and from which they have to sift the negative from the positive in order to maximize the benefit to themselves. But if the men watched porn for an hour prior to starting work, they would still make the same good decisions as if they had meditated. However, watching porn is looked down on, so no one in their right mind is going to own up to that practice. Instead give people the excuse of meditation and many will jump on the bandwagon, because unlike masturbation it is shrouded in pseudo-piety.

The reality is that any activity not connected to your actual work and which allows your mind and thoughts to be merged into calmness will aid your activity – because closing down all connection with your work worries gives you a release that subsequently will increase your productivity. That, guys, is meditation in progress.

However, the meditation of India is a totally different entity.

Indians meditate in order to experience and then attain detachment, permanently. It is an attitude that removes all and any need to be wealthy, healthy or otherwise materially satisfied. You, as race-Europeans, are not Indians from India, however, so such meditation is not within your goal, remit or capabilities.

Is it really the case that meditation can help the poor come to terms with their perceived financial plight?

Yes, absolutely.

Why?

Because if the poor or financially deprived master the thought of managing within their financial limitations, this would enable them to recognise that their wants are not important, but that their sense of peace is paramount. It is the ability to know what is important, to organise one’s priorities accordingly, which meditation grants you.

I have experienced first-hand how the filthy rich complain endlessly about not having and needing some kind of divine intervention so they don’t sink financially. Why the pessimism? Because they are all living a life of ‘want’. And ‘want’ is never satisfied. Whenever they attain one want, another comes along. Want is an endless train of desire. The richest are the saddest people I have ever met. Whereas, the destitute of India I have found to be some of the happiest people.

Why?

Because, for all that they lacked, they were happy with their lot in life. ‘Want’ was not a demon driving them to distraction. They attained better results in meditation. The rich, I am sorry to say, never even make it to the base of meditation.

To the fool, I say: Meditation will grant you unbelievable wealth. To the balanced, I have no need to say anything.

So, will meditation grant you financial wealth? No, not if your ancestral template is not designed for that purpose.

Sorry guys, but truth is truth.

Another End of a Beginning

A new club is formed. It makes a set of rules, followed by regulations. With these new conditions in place, the club becomes a humanitarian society, its ethos is to care for everything. It is eventually relabelled a sect. The sect then takes on the mantle of religion. Eventually, the ordinary, thoughtful activity embedded in humanitarianism becomes a fully fledged rites-and-ritual society. Once evolution has taken its toll, the rites-and-ritual evolves into Dharma: A lifestyle, unquestionable loyalty, an emotional bedrock sustaining well-being of the mortal coil to the unseen. At this juncture, modernity can take a running jump unless the forefathers had the insight to ensure that their new club had a place in modernity, and its ongoing manifestations, for better or worse. Non-European and non-Semitic belief systems fall into the Dharma bracket. European Christianity remains at the religion junction. Interestingly, Christianity practiced by non-Europeans automatically and immediately roots itself in the Dharma arena, due to their subjectivities and their racial traits.

A European Christian’s vehicle for control and conformity of the masses occurs via an organised church retaining a classical ethos – a society founded on Hebrew, Latin, and Greek literature and history. The church: A venerable organisation once held in high esteem, now arcane, and a relic at odds with its comical repackaging, where the dog collar and ‘father and mother’ or ‘brother and sister’ habit-wearer shelter as a new sound-image-bite of casual clothing and first names, in the vain hope of retaining a semblance of its past mystic authority and glory.

Dharma (pronounced ‘the-r-ma’): the non-European belief system is a lifestyle encompassing the realities of several astral lifestyles enjoyed in any given moment, and it is accepted as being as real as you are to yourself. By problematic comparison, religion limits itself to the here-and-now, with unsustainable concepts of the afterlife.

The term religion has become so obscure to all but its practitioners, as to curtail broader public acceptance, such that we now have people searching for its meaning, and being guided to the classics for this.

Europeans, toes curled as if enduring extreme pain, eventually admit when asked to being religious. It’s as if membership is an obligation rather than an honour. Christianity is throwing money at marketing itself and reinventing its core image, in the vain hope of curing its decay. Endowments are provided to re-image its doorways and its gatekeepers. An earnest attempt is made to re-package the word religion itself. Meanwhile, in order to retain a semblance of similarity to its origins, its erstwhile leaders hang on to its classic roots as if to some fundamental design template, and its connection to the antiquities.

Consequently, it emerges as Janus-faced and foists this emblem of confusedly facing both ways upon its members. They in turn look confusedly for an identity, a shelter, an image that might make them equal with Dharma.

Of all the Greek writers, the comic playwright Aristophanes would have the biggest field day with all this confusion.

Religion is literature. Dharma is soul. Europeans are desperately seeking soul, but their loyalty to the literature of ‘Christianity’ complicates their stance. Losing face, and internally admiring of Dharma, they feel themselves traitors for embracing this logical ‘other’ in their midst.

Religion has never been a healer. Religion is an earnest corrector of textural errors. Beyond that it flounders. Through religion one can become a great word-gamer. But word games do not feed the soul. They do not heal the psyche within. Mythologies, Biblical and impressive, are a scholar’s nightmare. Where on one hand they decree love for all, in the next sentence they give unequal authority over everything in creation: God created you, but gave you free will outside God’s domain and control. What next, the statement that woman was created from a man’s rib?!

Dharma has one theme. It is simple. You are created by an unseen, unfathomable source. You are answerable to that source, full stop. You have no authority other than to protect and care for all creation. It’s a simple code that does not sit well with the Jews, Muslims or Christians.

As an outsider, and when as a child I observed the conundrum of Judaism, I concluded that a Muslim is a Jew who will not tolerate anything outside scriptural lore. A Christian also follows the Jewish faith, but colours it with its psychopathic meanderings; a killer who enjoys killing for the sake of enjoyment.

If we look at pre-Socratics societies, we learn that Hellenistic scholars argued and developed glossaries and ideas, giving phonetic notes in order to arrive at a conclusion. Roman scholars took this as a base and ran with ideas that underpinned monastic norms. The modernity of the time we now dismissively call the medieval age stole a march on all this, in a way that is still confusing today. Not so medieval after all. The term medieval was coined by religious scholars around the 17th century, and was the result of about three hundred years of classical resurgence.

During the Reformation period, the monasteries reappraised the Jewish texts, and their offspring the Biblical texts. However, unpalatable truths reared their ugly heads. The enlightened thus engaged Jews of Hebrew descent from the Holy land. These Honest Johns spoke truths and facts, and maintained that the phoneticization of their language by earlier European scholars was a false construct. Hence, they maintained that official Biblical texts contained serious errors. Religion took a hit. It haemorrhaged. So, a compromise was arrived at that sullied, diluted and removed the formal boundaries. A mishmash was contrived.

The contrived mishmash now accepted as gospel won’t allow for detailed study of Christianity. The true facts are shrouded and left for scholars to debate over. Erudite academics, and outsider scholars, have created arenas challenging the Christian scholars, creating an invisible apartheid, where each side is frightened of the eventual outcome, so they gloss over the facts hoping for piece-meal acceptance of the minor revelation as and when revealed, where barbaric rites-and-rituals are watered, and the unacceptable behaviour of the Greeks and the Romans quietly hidden under carpets, eventually becoming material for anthropologists to unravel.

Christianity’s glue began decaying around the mid to late 19th century. Lip service seeped into the adulations and attachment of Europeans to the religion. Venturing physically outwards and en masse, into worlds thus far known only through folklore, Christians realised just how weak and petty their religion actually was. The automatic, natural, and evolutionary revolution that should have taken place in Christianity, but which was suppressed by the rulers and their monastic aides, prevented any opportunity that European religion might have in developing into Dharma. Authority, ignorance and fear triumphed over natural progression and selection.

The Bible has now become the intellectual’s ‘Harry Potter’ books. However, the detrimental effect of the loss of a formal reference and its subjective avenues has left the European race functioning as a human-born paraplegic. The mind wants to participate, but the formal, natural, physical limitations are an obstacle in experiencing the inner reward of participation in Dharma. Cyber limbs allow participation, but there is always a ‘what if’ or ‘if only’ in such minds. European Christianity as it stands today cannot and does not heal the soul. Due to this stunted growth, the mid 20th century witnessed a formal attack on Christianity’s irrelevance. Leninist learning replaced Greek and Latin literature, and well-founded arguments were made as to whether Rome was the creation of a tyrannical uprising turned imperialistic power.

Today, I see European Christianity trying to find its footing as a basic humanitarian sect, willing at times to embrace global literature in an attempt at self-study rather than remaining isolated. However, when I visit Christian seminaries unannounced, I experience the same age-old isolationist impulse that subdues the internal intellect and instead wants outside influence to rearrange core Christian scripture, while also lacking the humility to seek that input and without addressing the perceived inadequacies and inherent lies that underpin the Bible. Personal study of the original texts in ancient Hebrew is dismissed, and opaque translations from the internet are used as an authority.

However, I see in the Christian leaders’ eyes despair and recognition that they cannot genuinely debate immortality, samskar and the hereafter.

So, what hope for the ordinarywala in the street, fed a diet of psycho nonsense that we are about to be attacked by ISIS – who in all honesty cannot organise an orthodox Islamic wedding without getting into a long-term feud over appropriate rites-and-rituals?

The new religion of Europeans is an endless stream of ‘knowledge’ of the antiquities from Hollywood. Powered by such anti-knowledge and its nouveau Christian complexion, the ordinarywala is manipulated into yet another war against an enemy who is foaming at its mouth against followers of its own faith.

The white elephant in the room questions: ‘Had Christianity evolved centuries ago, would it still want to bomb, for no other reason than that ISIS is from another racial group, albeit a side involved in a primarily internal Islamic fight?’

Let’s imagine that during both the 1914 and 1939 European wars China had the means to autocratically bomb the hell out of each and every part of Europe in order to ‘stop’ an attack on itself based on an irate Christian announcing that European lack of self-worth was due to the modernity and achievements of China. How would the rank-and-file Europeans feel towards the Chinese?

The rank-and-file European would feel anger and hatred about the Chinese ability to arbitrarily kill one section of a European community after another.

Had Christianity evolved in its normal manner into Dharma, then the current ongoing Europeans lack of self-esteem and mass inferiority complex that requires killing of others from a different racial group and engaging in race-hate wars, would not take place.

The Mumbai carnage response was Dharmic, compared with the response to the twin towers attack.

I maintain that if someone cuts off your arm, pray that no one cuts off his hand. This is Dharma in action. Guys, life happens. It is an inescapable template. Each and every insult and attack does not always require an equally or more forceful answer. Life is for living with an open loving mind, and loving thoughts.

After all, cancer is a disease. So why do the Europeans not bomb it?

Islam, a faith I personally have great difficulty with, is undergoing evolution. It is going through birth pains. Leave it alone. The sooner it relaxes into its evolution, the sooner that area of our very small globe will find peace.

I, as an old fashioned Sikh, can only indicate. The rest is up to the motley crew who are confused with what exactly is their role in the world. Europeans without a religion which, by all rights, ought to have evolved into Dharma, are confused and at a loss. As a result, they feel the need to lead.

But a toddler cannot lead nor give advice to its adults.

Europeans, you need to grow up. How you come to terms with your inferiority complex is for you to work out.

But, please, work on it. Global peace depends on it.

Mirror Mirror On The Koran Wall…A Mirage To Confound Them All.

Paintings cannot, it is claimed, teach us about painting as much as literature about paintings can. Whiskers, it is claimed are an economic indicator. Harvard scholar’s Snoopy world-view, debatably dysfunctional, depicts his own mental relationship with himself.

Humans historically engage one great talent, to vivify their own narrowness; where wealth and sex appeal – domineering like anti-uncomfortable truths seconded to selfishness and cruelty, disfigure and open cracks, providing incremental mental comfort while pretending serendipity – marrowed in humbleness of piety.

At a practical everyday level, I have observed the following three examples: I came across a person with severely inhibited communication skills, who deemed it appropriate to use profane language to impress a lady he was trying to chat-up. On another occasion, I witnessed youths mocking a very old person who suffered from mobility restrictions, and who had taken offence at the insults by announcing that he was capable of taking them out physically. And to top this, I have come across many a car driver who thinks they are capable of passing through a gap that an anorexic person would find impossible.

Why the distorted value, and misappraisal of a situation, that in the main most ordinary people would automatically understand, and would respond to by reconsidering their options?

Over-simplification, or misunderstanding of the dynamics of the situation?

I am at pains to explain to newbies that spirituality cannot be understood or explained unless one is a fully fledged member of the dharma society. Dharma, as many of you who read my essays will recall, is a station of awareness well beyond the rustic requirements of religion. From religion one goes into rite and ritual. Christianity, Judaism, and Islam are religions. Hinduism is neither a religion nor a dharma. Sikhism, Buddhism, Chen (Zen), Vaidism and Jainism are Dharma. The dictates listed in the Torah, Bible and the Koran are an evaluation of a given moment in a given society’s biography.

The dictates have the form, structure and pronouncement of what passed for law at the time. Lawyers of that time were well-versed in the lore of their given social structure, and were therefore considered capable of collating information guided by senior theologians and philosophers, culminating in a list of guidelines; they also answered queries, problems and indeed misapprehensions. Future-proofing these guidelines was an art that bypassed them totally. Thus, the cause of the sieve-laced ambiguity of the gold-plated reservoir walls of their religion; the leaks from this causing the outright confusion, misunderstanding and mayhem we see on today’s global stage.

The massacre conducted by the Euro-Race Christians of the races in the Americas and the Antipodes, along with the brutal massacre meted out to the nation-races of Africa, as well as the Hiroshima atomic bomb, are underpinned by the then Bible-bashers in precisely in the same manner as conducted by the Koran-bashers.

Now let me put some sense into this mess.

At a very advanced inner growth awareness, the futility of what is deemed ‘life’ is the bedrock of one’s initial stepping stone. Life, it is agreed, by those at this level, is in fact a prison, a death, a limitation to what one can and is capable of enjoying if freed from the chains holding him to the mortal coil. While I agree with the reality of this awakening, I have to impress upon the reader that at no time is it considered irrelevant, or a confinement, to be chained to the mortal coil. In fact, the very environment is a space for education, and for refining one’s sensibilities and sensitivities; preparing the inner self to live as a non-mortal Being aimed at being an Essence rather than corporeally limited.

However, the problem engulfing the naive listener, albeit an ardent practitioner of the disciplines and rigours of the rite-ritual environment, is that they only understand according to these limited parameters.

A seven year old makes assumptions about the wonders awaiting him at age eleven. An eleven year old dreams about the wonders awaiting him at age eighteen. And within each age group they share, discuss, encourage, dethrone and recreate the illusions awaiting them.

Each time I read the Torah, I am struck by the sheer number of Vedic concepts contained therein. I am struck further by the fact that the explanation of the concepts is distorted out of all recognition. The Bible, based on the Torah, is equally confused.

Take the simplistic concept of female-covering in Islam, Judaism, and Christianity. It is only in recent decades that Christian European women have thrown off the shackles that required them to be covered lest they trigger ‘unhealthy’ responses in men. It was only in the late seventies that showing a bra-strap stopped being vulgar, cheap and shameful. However, each of these religions, and Islam in particular, fails to mention that gay men should also demand that men in general be covered head to toe, because the sexual allure triggering erotic thoughts, leading into eroticism, is present whensoever one sets one’s eyes on a person who triggers a sexual desire.

Of course, the simple answer is that the person who is attempting to walk a religious path, who cannot control his sexual impulses, should have his eyes gorged out, or at least in public he should wear a bandage over his eyes lest he see something that may trigger a sexual desire. However, covering one’s eyes is far too honest an appreciation of one’s own problem, and it is much grander to announce that one is pure and in control, and (this is the best part) that it is the person who inflames your own uncontrollable sexual hunger who has defiled your purity!

Confused? I certainly am.

So why the confusion?

Yes, it is accepted that to advance in the realms of dharma one has to have full control over one’s sexual emotion and triggers. In dharma, a male orgasm has to be as exciting and fulfilling as the sensation one experiences by tenderly stroking an index finger over the back of one’s hand. This state is reached as a byproduct of meditation where one is learning and mastering one’s own nervous system, such that the concept of sexual allure is incapable of effecting one’s own physiology. Sexual trigger and the resultant waste of a very valuable nervous energy is thus contained, and that energy is available for use in one’s inner refinement.

However, at the religious level, the well-intentioned surmise that in order to bypass the hard rigours of male meditation women should instead cover themselves up. Consequently, pressure is placed on women who do not comply, and their bodies are consigned to hell.

The seniors of Semitic religions jump ship and change their colours as it suits their needs: at times, they say the body houses the soul, and it is the soul that enters paradise or anti-paradise; at other times, and when admonishment is given, they talk about the body entering paradise or anti-paradise.

How convenient.

So, this means that Muslim men will enter paradise physically. So, where does their soul reside? And pure Muslim women who even for a moment become uncovered in public will physically enter anti-paradise. Well, what of their soul?

By this reasoning the great Allah has a physical body… but cannot be given a physical body here on earth. Now I really am confused. To me, the great Allah is an essence in which is merged a soul, so the soul will not enter anti-paradise, but a physical body will?

The Torah is equally contradictory. Hence the related contradiction in Islam. For, when I read the Koran and Torah side by side, I find very little that separates them. So I ask, why do the current Muslims not rewrite the Koran, separating their reliance on and attachments to the Torah, and create a more factual reality representing their own rules rather than copy-saluting another’s set of dos and don’ts?

In dharma, it is accepted that one can enter a realm of non physical confinement – paradise. However, the environment is utterly different from what is found here on this iron-ore rust bucket we hypocritically call Mother Earth. Guys, when was the last time any of you chopped your mother’s hand off finger by finger? Mother Earth indeed…Reverting: in dharam, ‘paradise’ is a non-corporeal environment. No physical presence here. Can you imagine how CCTV business would be a non-starter there?!

So, why the confusion regarding paradise?

Because people do not listen, let alone understand. You nod your head in deep agreement when we speak, but you go away with your own version and summary of what we say. This in a nut shell is what has happened in the ‘books’ of the Semitic religions.

Another confusion I hear constantly…

Islamic boys are told that there is no need to have a girlfriend since in paradise there awaits an unending line of the most gorgeous girls, that life really begins in paradise, and the best way to enter paradise is to become a martyr. So, how in hell did these sexually alluring, unbelievably desirable, irresistible girls enter paradise when here on earth those types of girls are told they will only enter anti-paradise? What, the two realms share a communicating door? A back alley? A doorman who holds the key and decides which girls from anti-paradise are allowed into paradise for the insatiable appetite of the sexually hungry youth? Explain for me please, when one enters either realm is one born as a baby and have to grow into adulthood, or is one a fully grown adult and ready to sow his oats?

Muslim women who enter paradise, are they gifted an endless supply of young handsome men with six-packs who never tire? And in paradise are Muslim women utterly wrapped in wanton and insatiable lust, when here on earth they are threatened with the anti-paradise if they refuse sex to their husband!

At this moment in time, I suspect that the lawyers who penned the thoughts of the theologians and philosophers forming the Torah, the Bible, and the Koran took the silver for their services but failed to deliver hardcore theology in return. Guys, the lot of you have been mega duped. Thus, I suggest a total rewrite of all the three books to bring them in line with modern sensibilities.

As an outsider looking in I find all three Semitic religions trying to put square pegs into round holes. My opening paragraphs were apt in defining the problem. In the case of these three religions, application and aptitude are not merely misaligned, they are not even on the same page.

The followers of all three Semitic religions should take a long hard lookat themselves in the mirror, and I hope you are sensitive enough to recognise the ignorance glaring back at you. Your religions are trying to mimic and mirror Vedic dharma of India, but have failed miserably. The annihilation of races the Semitic group has conducted globally is shameful, and there is no end in sight.

The Euro-Race Christians are equally as dim as the Islamists.

And why will they not listen to reason? Because stupidity has one great weapon, it cannot recognise its own stupidity.

On 20th November 2015, I watched Senator McCain of America in a televised interview justifying yet another attack on Muslims, this time on ISIS, by differentiating Christianity from Islam and claiming that Christians hold true to their belief “love thy neighbour”. Yeah, Senator, try telling that to the first settlers whose land you have stolen, conquered and arrogantly call your land and home. No mate, you are as mentally deranged as the Muslims of this day, and like you, they have been mentally unstable since their inception.

To the Christians of today I say, granted, your forefathers in their ignorance and arrogance divided the Ottoman Empire into what we see as today’s Middle East. Why, oh why, do you, today’s Christians not let the dwellers of that area decide for themselves how they wish to redefine their landmass? Have you Europeans forgotten the hundred years war you so deliriously enjoyed?

Simultaneously, the modern day Christians should sit with India and Pakistan and undo the mess their forefathers created there. To the Christians of today I ask, ‘Why do you not have the conscientiousness to lead and amend your forefathers’ stupidity?’ Unless you are as arrogantly stupid as were they.

Casting my net wider, I invite the whole of humanity to look into the mirror. However, to see the mirror one needs eyes. And humans no longer have eyes. They have delusions of grandeur where once existed eyes. And in the delusion of grandeur, one thing is certain: the carousel of illogical killing goes round and round.

Shameful.

Halal Meat

More than a billion humans swear by the ritual slaughter of animals for consumption: a ritual once practiced by the awakened, now mimicked by the un-awakened. To examine this I need to address ritual per se. This I have done in my book, ‘Mischievous Mystic’.

Histrionics indicate that humans have a tendency to seek pedestal-like superiority, when in fact they are aiming for nobility. They confuse the two. As I state in my quotes, ‘superiority and nobility are two qualities and cannot mix; nor can a comparison be drawn between them.’

Thus, Hebrews, while living under yet aiming to escape their imprisonment from Egyptians, formulated their own creed to identify and separate themselves from the ruling citizens. Their containment lifestyle (with its rigid curtailment of self-determination) may be compared with African slavery and with the third class citizenship of non-Europeans plying their trade in European governed lands whilst retaining their own lifestyle.

Slavery, as practiced by the English in particular, and the Europeans in general, was extreme psychopathic hatred based on these peoples versions of rightness and Godliness. A dark-skinned Turk brought religious and spiritual specialty to the islands of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. He is revered as the saint of England. He, like that other very dark-skinned individual revered and addressed affectionately as Jesus of Nazareth, has over the course of time and numerous artful depictions been increasingly relieved of his indigenous tint to the point of now having Caucasian skin.

The slavery of the Old Age in the non-European arena was not based on a similar inhumane, barbaric relationship. Slaves were a sign of wealth. They were valued and prized. They were treated with respect though they remained citizen-less. The right of belonging including the right to buy land was denied them. They were denied all formal education. This did not mean their inner awakening was quashed, rescinded or controlled. Many an advanced theorist was a slave and gave his awakening to the surrounding world via his ‘owner’. The owner enjoyed the applause but it was the slave who supplied the information and the teaching. Slaves also knew they had power and if they chose to disobey en masse then the dominant society could not function. It was the hopelessness derived from lack of weapons that maintained the status quo. Thus, the status of Hebrews under the Egyptians is not in fact at all comparable to the African and Aboriginal slavery of the European era. One was predicated on human value and worth while the other was evil.

Older society revered life, whether animal or human. If an animal had to be sacrificed to appease the Gods then this was carried out following a strict set of rites and ritual prayers. Not just anyone could or would dare to kill an animal as done by current humans. The elders knew that life slaughtered for whatever reason had a price. The murderer has to take birth as that animal and live lifetimes in that social pool fearing predators and seeking prey for their own survival. It is a self-sustaining cycle from which the only way forward is to practice care and protection of others, especially of one’s prey. One then advances to their next life cycle as an herbivore, again fearing predators. From a herbivore one eventually rebirths as a domestic animal. Finally, after countless more births they advance into a human life cycle.

This cycle was, and is, well known to the awakened. They guide people away from meat consumption, as whoever eats meat has agreed to be born into that species for lifetimes. A top predator cannot take human birth at all. It must suffer the agony of being an herbivore and a victim until it has the opportunity to be born as a human.

Thus, sacrificing an animal, which in itself is a very potent, viral and powerful instrument of bargain, is an action that beseeches a calmer and more peaceful life pattern. It was only conducted by the very advanced seers of old society. No one in his or her right mind would kill or ‘sacrifice’ an animal whilst knowing the ramifications of such a deed.

The actual theory of sacrifice is very complex, and a set of responsibilities has to be accepted by the killer. Prayers are offered where you, the killer, are sacrificing yourself and are willing to be born into the species you are about to sacrifice, as an appeasement. The Hebrew sacrifice followed this model. However, ritual killing has now transformed into a commercial enterprise.

Moslims – to be accurate about this they were not called Moslim at that time, but were a caravan community willing to merge into any ritual model that favoured their circumstances and trade; but let’s stick with addressing them as Moslims, to give them their original English spelling. Moslims mimicked the cultivated-but-not-indigenous practices Hebrews brought with them out of Egypt. As in any first world country (I address non-industrial, non-technical countries as First World and technological/industrial countries as Third World countries), Moslims were intrigued and willingly followed and mimicked anything the technological country had to offer. For example, I as a Sikh visiting such environments am studied to ascertain what can be mimicked, which they term in their minds as ‘progression’. So, Moslims mimicked the new settlers, the Jews, as those new settlers had lived their life in the very advanced, cultured society called Egypt. Egypt, we have to remember, was the ethno-cultural centre of the surrounding area. Caravan communities looked up to anything Egyptian. Thus, when a rite/ritual conducted under strict guidelines was used in tandem with solemn prayer by the most awakened within the New Settler community, the Caravan community took that as a new teaching. They, in turn, passed on this new practice during their travels. The ritual of a slow slaughter was deemed sophisticated and advanced.

However, the slaughter of an animal was rare practice. It was an offering. A trade-off, whereby I, the killer of this animal, am sacrificing myself into this animal’s life-line and accept that this animal takes birth as a human in my place. Humans in those times would seldom eat animals and if they did then they would eat a naturally dead animal. No human wanted to be born as a non-human animal.

If the Moslims of today have an ounce of self-worth and common-sense, they would jettison their mimicry of the (adopted but not native) tradition of a society and culture which they are hell-bent on removing from Palestine.

But rigidity is rigidity. Shallowness is shallowness. And ignorance is bliss.

And so, I like my predecessors am a note on a flute, drowned by the hurricane of arrogance encased in ignorance. What I say will be ignored. And humans will kill not only animals but humans, and they will destroy this planet we all call home.

Colours: Birth & Death

The simplistic novelty of popular music theory ignores and then expels the status quo of the Seed-Notes. Then it replaces the core Seed-Notes with its own one-dimensional existence. Novelty inevitably and invariably changes the spiritual state of the core Seed-Notes. However, the change is artificial, transient, temporary and is cloaked in the ambiguities of ignorance; the prime secret uncared for, or glossed over. Popular musicians seemingly invoke originality, oblivious of the relationship between creation and the rule of the ‘unstruck melody’. The very melody without which, the creation of creations could not be.

Light, in similar manner, is in fact the co-element of the unstruck melody.

Suffice to say, at this level, that they are twins, though deeper dialogue would reveal another truth-reality. Light that I refer to is not the type of light registered by the ocular apparatus. For example, the night sky, the very blackness where the full moon is ploughing ground further afield, that very blackness is in fact unbelievably bright and is in fact light, pure light at that. But human eyes are not required to operate at that end of the spectrum, so our limited vision registers it as darkness.

However, light at its base gross level, with its manual colours, we recognise. The colour of flowers, dyed clothes and everything in nature, classified in colour, humans deem to be the sum total of the light spectrum.

Colours represent stages of advancement, functionality and purpose. For example, two different machines, a car and a boat, cannot operate in each other’s environment. Colours in the same way have a purpose, and their resonance within that colour configuration has a defining rationale.

Each of us at after birth, prior to the ability to focus our eyes, cognizes our attachment or preference to one particular colour. That colour is our homing signal. Our solar-signature. The core of our being is that very colour. It is our ‘solar-handle’. It is what defines us. However, each colour has its own individual bar code and is attached to other colours forming a unique colour scheme. This colour scheme defines our existence, our vibration, our harmonious or disharmonious relationships within so-called social structures and interpersonal relationships. And this solar-signature is what precipitates the initial fertilisation, the union between the ovum and the sperm. More about the intricate relationship of solar-signature in another essay.

Now let me put the cat amongst the pigeons.

Say that the initial colour is yellow. Two new-born babies could be attracted to the same colour. However the pattern alignment of the other colours (and I am going to limit this to the conscious colours of the rainbow only, when in fact the range of colours beyond the conscious layer has numerous distinct colours, and these have nothing to do with mixing the colour palate) attached to the preferred yellow will always be different. For one baby, red might be the next colour attached to the initial yellow, while for the other it could be blue.

The balance and the cooperation between the colour vibrations sums you up as the individual. You in fact are light. But in ignorance you are deemed only a physical corporeal body. And no, purity, normally associated with the pious and imagined to be a pure colour of one hue or another, is not a uniform reality either: for, when the combination of the notes from the initial unstruck melody and the apex colour of an individual are not in synchronization…one cannot appreciate the ‘play’ behind creation.The apex colour of an individual person, if it is to aid the individual into deeper clearer awareness, has to be harmoniously aligned with all the colours encapsulated and vibrating within a physical frame.

Hence, in all my writings, my insistence on calling each individual a bio-system.

However, there are basic laws, such as the founding stone of the colour symmetry. These founding stones are not limited to the seven colours of the rainbow, but to at least two more. In addition to the seven rainbow colours, we have to add white and black. Thus, we have nine colours. And these nine colours correspond to the main nine chakras of the given bio-system. (I have written about chakras in a previous essay). Furthermore, the current format of allocating a particular colour to a particular chakra – of course this only applies to the seven chakras – is not cast in stone either. Thus, the confusion among the ‘experts’ who teach further awareness, and who have an unbelievably limited understanding of how the mechanism of the inner bio-system actually functions…all of that is for another essay.

Reverting. The core base colours are limited to three: black, white and red. Here, red represents the opening of the portal of colour configuration itself. Black and white represent certain limiting environments and administration centres. Black and white are the polarities that indicate the type of awareness one is involved in and attached to.

Within these two polarities exists the following: You enter a state through a portal. This portal is the emergence portal. The presence of the emergence portal decreases fast as you move away from it towards the convergence portal, and thence to the progressive dimension. The area within the emergence and convergence portal is the arena that You exist in, and is denoted by the colour Red.  The emergence portal is referred to as Black, only because once out of that you are not allowed to identify or distinguish it from its surroundings. The ongoing target destination, however, is the convergence portal, which in relative terms shines and is therefore referred to as White.

The bio-structure is housed between the energies of the emergence portal located at the lowest confluence of a bio-structure and the convergence portal located at the apex chakra of a bio-structure. Thus, the arena of the remaining seven chakras is reactive, and referred to as Red. This Red represents activity and is split into the seven colours of the rainbow. Having said that, this arena and its colour symmetry is not as straight forward as I have explained. That for another time.

Emerging Portal – Black

Black represents retrograde awareness. It exists only because its other presence exists. The other presence is shining, labeled white, denoting expansion and/or explosion. Indistinguishable matter labeled black represents negativity, regressiveness or implosion. For purposes of explanation I too, at times, use extreme terms like negative and positive awareness. When, in reality, that is not factually accurate. However, advancement in negative awareness is equally powerful as that of positive awareness.

If the Master-Being of blackness stood before your secular bio-awareness, you would be extremely hard pressed to differentiate between it and the Master-Being of whiteness. They are identical in their power and kindness. The purity of the two, experienced at a secular level, is identical. Only at the advanced level are we able to differentiate between them. It is only then that we are able to determine that one environment is absolutely reliant for its existence upon the presence of the other. In this case, regressive presence in order to exist needs the progressive presence. At this level suffice to say that progressive presence can, however, exist of its own accord.

[In reality, the two states are neither progressive (white) nor repressive (black). White refers to expansion, as in inhaling to puff the cheat. Black refers to exhaling and deflating the chest.]

In everyday existence, a strong association with the colour black means that you, the bio-system, are the pawn of its Master-Being (in English, the Devil) who is your ‘God’ and who you consider to be the ultimate God-creator. Therefore, at funerals, when as mourners you wear black, you are stating that the person you have come to cremate or bury was a pawn of the Devil, as are you; and you thereby willingly accept the deceased’s negative qualities into yourself. Thereafter, this negative quality is passed through you to your partner and offspring the moment you meet them.

It is like wearing, as people do in western culture, the wedding ring on the very hand that you use to wipe your bottom. It is asking Black and Devil to be the guardian of your relationship. Fingers are the expulsion outlets of bio-energy from your bio-system. A malfunction restrictor, such as a ring, is expressly used to control the excessive loss of energy, or to enhance the methodical expulsion of a particular energy from the bio-system. The best place to wear an ornament if one must be worn to identify a relationship, is above and never below the heart chakra.

Black is the colour of the Devil and his mistress Evil.

Converging Portal – White

White represents a new beginning. And all beginnings start as a null and a void. A bud waiting to bloom. This colour represents the nest positive expression of creation. The Master-Being of this environment is God and his mistress Nature-Mother. White is the environment, both the end of one dimension, one layer, one existence and opening portal to the next. It is inert. To attach your emotion to this colour, for example at a Christian wedding and marriage, is to claim that the relationship is inert and non-committal, albeit that the passion and lust of the relationship is anything but inert and passive.

White should only be worn at funerals or religious functions. White also indicates that your emotional rationality is balanced and steady, and additionally that you are looking or aiming in your life to progress through a positive energy portal. And this also avoids you taking home, to your nearest and dearest, any negative energy of the deceased, when worn at funerals.

Operational Field – Red

Red represents the rainbow. Red represents active, directional, thoughtful progression in respect of the parameters of nature. Red is therefore the colour of marriage, or of a new relationship. Red is also the colour of financial well-being and accumulation of wealth. Hence, from red, movement takes place in co-operation with one’s own birth colour symmetry. In addition, red is the arena that allows the flow of the other colours associated with the seven (normal) chakras. That flow is controlled by the birth bar-code symmetry attained at conception, which then regulates the actual moment of birth.

You are born at conception. It is that moment that decides your totality henceforth. Red is the entry portal of your personality. However, you will be attracted to a given colour other than the red that facilitates your entry into the world. That colour is your bio-solar-signature.

Along with that colour, at conception, you are also a Tone. A note. A note that is part of the unstruck melody. You resonate that note. That note could be harmonious, meaning it bonds easily with other notes to make an expanding sound. Or, you could be the note that is seldom used and usually stands alone in its initial pure configuration.

Humans see and draw the wrong conclusions from social interaction: your popularity is a measure of how well you are liked and admired and how often your company is sought. This is fantastic for your ego, but in terms of allowing you advancement into deeper refined awareness it is the very opposite of what you need. Compared to this is the individual who is least liked, seldom sought, usually ignored and generally looked down upon. The social outcast. This person has the best configuration for advancing further and deeper into self-awareness.

But when ignorance felicitates ignorance then of course the retrograde awareness reaps rewards. And retrograde awareness is the worship of the Devil. And if that is what has been prescribed for you then that is what you will participate in. After all, we cannot all become detached and materially reclusive. Although I accept that it is the best thing, and know that all advanced persons are detached and materially reclusive, you secular beings are not configured for that type of thought and alignment. For you, insatiable materialism is the order of the day. And I have to respect that.

For you, too, are the Seed-Note. And your Seed-Note is popularism. Like popular music, based on two, three or the maximum four notes repeatedly played in a sequence to make music, you too have a function and a reason. So enjoy your participation as a cog in the scheme of things. For you are created for a reason, and only reason knows its Reason. As for the rest of us, we need to sit back and participate as cogs, by playing our own part, in the scheme of things.

Păssĭm or Passion

I have always had two hobby horses in my life. One is creativity, a middle of the road type of creativity – not for me the ‘art’ of a cow suspended in alcohol in a glass tank. I don’t consider that art, rather a deviant exploitative expression. Yet I defend the right to express that ‘art form’. No, my middle of the road boring creativity is limited to photography, preferably black and white, and oil painting – both self-taught, and both at which I am diabolically bad. God, at times even I cringe at what I ‘create’. My other hobby is happiness, hand in hand with pleasantness, married to politeness. My pet hate is betrayal steeped in secrecy acting as a poisonous chaperone between life-long ‘trusting’ companions.

As you may have guessed by now, my life is narcissistically and tribally merged in questioning and challenging the value of abstract obituaries where intellectual conceptualism masquerading as advanced awareness postures, when in reality it is cocooned in dearth of pure awareness.

Humankind has several cherished bedrocks. The entire species clutches at well-being as a measuring tape where self-opinion is a barometer of self-worth: and of one’s own specialness. Yet there is an amnesic refuge-seeking, so that groups can refuse to countenance the fact that the exact same thread runs through swathes of other human racial groups. This then means that each individual human-animal thinks it is unique and special. If only that was a truth.

It is this misnomer which is the cause of rite and ritual divide.

Let us face a fact. It is written in each and every scripture that killing somebody of a different faith practice is acceptable. Check the Bible. It states this. What, you cannot find the precise line or set of words advocating murder in the Bible? What next? You are going to tell me that Jesus of Nazareth wrote the Bible himself!

If you do find a passage about acceptance of murder in any of the scriptures, written in its original formal language by that religions originator, I will announce you as ‘God’. Because no such nonsense exists in any of the scriptures, at all.

So why the massive differences between humans?

Because we are ignorant of our own ignorance.

In Sikhism, the core essence is the defence of the weak and the vulnerable. Well, not actually. The weak do not need defending. So whence the high self-opinion that you as a Sikh must defend the defenseless? Because of a simple misunderstanding. The simple misunderstanding is to misread the protection of life from death as demanding defence of the weak. A Sikh raises arms against the oppressor to warn the latter about its own destiny with death. For, the mentality of an oppressor is to challenge life itself, thus accelerating life’s collaboration with death. An oppressor has a relationship with death. Its own.

But it is too much of a coward to either cut its own throat or pull the trigger to blow out its own its brains. Let me elucidate. A rock climber without any safety equipment is challenging death. It subconsciously seeks its own demise in as flamboyant a way as possible. Not for this delusional glory-seeker a simple overdose of pills; no, that is too simple, not ‘blazing enough’ in itself. Instead it glories in the perversion of claiming command over death when it has finished the climb not having met death.

If you tell this person to wear a safety harness, it smiles in your face as if you lack courage. In this instance, an adrenaline rush is perceived as courage.

If that is courage then what do we call a mother in a battered relationship, anxious to maintain that relationship because she intuitively knows a father is very important in the rearing of their children? Her choice to suffer mental and physical abuse, hidden from the children, is real courage. No adrenaline rush here. Just pure responsibility.

But why?

I started with the title “Păssĭm or Passion” – here I am using the Merriam Webster dictionary definition about păssĭm. Then, I spoke about the limit of my own creativity. The question men have to ask is that if it were not for the creativity of women, would a man even exist? For life is created by women and not by men. Men are the custodians of a life-form called sperm. But women have the internal capacity to induce birth from the chemistry that they are born with and are guardians of from birth, without the need of ‘sperm’. Men simply expedite the event.

In the creativity of life, men are Păssĭm whereas women are Passion. Passion stands for focus, determination and steadfastness. Man’s creativity is a passive unconcern for the welfare of living and life. Hence the mass killing, whether for commerce or pleasure, of each other and of non-human animals. Women, meanwhile, are motivated, moved and magnanimous in their desire to create and protect life.

Chivalry, gallantry, graciousness, politeness and good manners are some of the attributes that are meant to be automatic to Sikhs. Yet, Sikhs fail in most of these attributes. Men the world over need to consciously re-evaluate their existence in the scheme of creation.

You, as men, are born into a symmetry outside which you cannot exist. Why, then, do you abuse, destroy and de-create creation? I have just read a news item in which yet another ‘discovery’ has been made – that you use both sides of your brain for speech. Oh, wow. Well actually, this new discovery is progress from the decades old ‘discovery’ that one hemisphere of the brain was the speech centre. The item raised a wry smile in me, and I asked, how on earth does this help you as a man when, for whatever reason, you get into a needless argument with another driver about the right of way in European-centric countries?

Until peace has not become your personal mantra, and is input into every aspect of your life, what on earth is the point of ‘discovering’ that there is another planet out there identical to this planet? What, you want to poison that world as Europeans have poisoned this planet. No, it is not humans who have poisoned this planet. That accolade is entirely race European’s achievement.

Action in the form of male Europeans poisoning this planet is also passion, however it is a negative passion. I refuse to accept that race European women want to poison this planet. No, this accolade belongs only to the men of race European. It is they who have to clean up the poison that is strangling life on this planet. But greed as usual will get in the way.

I ask European men the following: what greed-based enthusiasm drives the maternal mothering instincts without which you as a man could not exist, let alone take birth?

European men, and men in general, do not need a lecture in advancing awareness to shame them into facing reality. All they need to do is study the basic principle of womanness.

Mirror the care, compassion and loyalty of the women who on a daily basis you interact with. For, it is women who are the actual teachers of inner awakening. No sod of a bloke sitting cross-legged atop a freezing mountain, his testicles having shriveled to the size of a pea, is going to mouth off a sacred mantra that will trip the light fantastic for you, and you alone, and sod the rest of humanity. Duck that nonsense, guys. Duck it.

Just value the women in your life, that’s all. Just value them.

In them lies true creativity.

And as for my out-of-focus, dodgy, black and white photography, guys, believe me, it is art, but maybe not as you would value it.

Football, Prayers & Ecology

Let me begin with a thought. You have two of the following: eyes, nostrils, ears, lungs, kidneys, ovaries, testes, breasts, hands, arms, feet, legs as well as numerous glands and miles of blood vessels.

Football:

I, along with all other children, played a game that involved kicking anything that would roll and chasing it to kick it again, and again. The emphasis was on kicking the object. The aim was to be the first, each and every time, to kick the object. This required running faster than anybody else. We pushed others out of the way, but really it was more a polite occupation of space in order to obstruct the other person’s path to the object. Occasionally we got an actual ball to kick. Wow, a ball. Yep, they existed in those far off days in the midday sun of the Kenyan dirt track and side alleys.

Many families lived around a courtyard. Family courtyards were invariably concreted, and several families occupied the dwellings surrounding it and used that space to cook the day’s food before the sun became unbearable. When the sun raged, the internal kitchen was used. Each wife/mother cooked in her own kitchen; however, each cook offered and accepted food cooked by another. Reciprocity was the mainstay of such units. So kids did not really kick about in the courtyards as freely as they did in the side alleys.

These kickabouts were replicated when as a child the family moved to Punjab. There my school had goalposts in playing fields. “What was football?”, I asked after being told what the posts were for, and being told they were football goalposts. I never did see football being played in India. The best that a ‘football’ was used for was to see how high one could kick a ball into the air.

You guys have to realise that the heat of equatorial Kenya and tropical India is an energy-sapping environment. People are easy-going because the heat does not encourage active movement for sustained periods of time. No one in his or her right mind wants to increase their body temperature, so chasing a ball was not the ideal game to play.

No, the game we played was to go walking around the shopping centres to look at girls of our age or slightly older. If girls looked at us without frowning, we spun dreams of love, marriage, children, and grandchildren, until the next time a girl looked at us without a frown. I sometimes wonder where the Muslims got their idea of multi-marriage!

When still a child, the family moved to London. I didn’t know what England was, but I knew what London was. London was the country, with which England was somehow associated. How, was not quite clear. Televisions by and large were a non-entity in those days. Kids played in the streets or in the park. My glee at being confronted with a ball to chase in the park must have been plastered all over my face, and I was invited to join the group of lads ‘playing’. They played in the same way we chased the round object through the dirt alleyways in Kenya. It was the same: push each other politely, and kick the ball; but this time in a particular direction.

At school in those days sports was mandatory. I was confronted with things called wing-half and inside-right, while the position that threw me for months were something called right and left bats. Bats! What had vampires to do with football?! As my ears got used to the English and London accent, I realised the words were right and left backs. The first time I played, I was told to stand in a position at the edge of the pitch. Half-a-wing or was it wing-half or something like that. I had never come across anything like this.

The centre-forward pushed the ball forwards for his companion to run with. I looked on transfixed from where I’d been told to stand. That was my position so I stood and watched. Then deja vu took over. The kids, all twenty of them, chased the ball irrespective of what their position on the field was. I knew this game. It was the kick & chase game of the dirt track alleyways of Kenya. Only this time it was called football. I understood the mêlée. I joined in with full gusto.

Kids reeled off names like Puskas, Eusebio, Pele, Garrincha, Billy Wright, Stanley Matthews, Danny Blanchflower…they might as well have been speaking double-dutch for all I knew, but I cottoned on that the Brazilian national team was the best around etc.

The 1966 world cup was on television. The most obvious thing I observed was the manner in which the European teams refused to play football, but rather stuck to allocated ‘positions’. The South Americans, with their natural flair, played from the heart. The Europeans played a calculated, tactical game. Nature verse nurture. Nurture won the cup. The essence had been taken out of the game. Results mattered, not flair. Beauty was replaced by Bugly Yetty. A precursor world in which intelligence began to be measured by catty sarcasm.

The Europeans went further. They perfected the tactical foul. Ever since, the game has lost its purity. What we see today is not football, a game intended for a cardiovascular workout with smiling faces and mutual admiration. Instead, we see a war. It has become a caveman’s war. Win at any cost.

Old manners intertwined with ancient mechanisms of Prayer have also become like the modern game of football. Prayers used to be aimed at an end result. The end result sought was peace. Peace in one’s thoughts with Peace-related stream of thoughts. But nowadays, (nowadays here means the past five to six thousands years), it is thinking masquerading as Prayer.

Prayer has become a method of beseeching the outer something deemed ‘God’, to fulfill a request. Naturally, as priorities and emotions change, the request changes. “Dear God…” a new requisition form is forwarded. Then ofcourse as the request is never fulfilled a ‘I do not believe in God…’ diatribe is energised.

Prayers have to evolve as humans change their reference points. I will use football to illustrate change and the new evolution that could transform football. This new evolution could be called Gool-Mool.

  1. Throw-in: can be slung in with one arm, or kicked in like a foul. Either way the opposing team cannot be within ten yards.
  2. If a foul is committed in the defending half by the defending team, no more than three defenders plus their goalkeeper must face five attackers, until the ball goes out of play, a goal is scored or is successfully defended.
  3. Every third corner automatically leads to a dribble penalty where an attacker faces the goalkeeper. Either the attack is nullified or a goal is scored.
  4. A shot hitting the post and rebounding back into play is an automatic goal.
  5. A yellow card sees the player sit in sin-bin for five minutes, and the opposition gets to choose another player to join the offender for two minutes.
  6. Only three defenders plus a goalkeeper can defend a corner while the attack team has five players including the corner-taker, until a goal is scored or defended successfully.
  7. Rolling substitutes throughout the game.
  8. No off-side.
  9. The team first to score in a score draw gets two points while the other team gets one point only; in a no-score draw game points remain distributed as they are now.

The game will automatically become far more exciting to watch and participate in. Whereas the modern game as played now been lost to the clinical thinkers and risk-averse managers. Fun, enjoyment, and excitement have been lost totally.

Similarly, Prayers also have to be revamped to meet the requirements of the current God, a Greed-God. Parishioners of Greed-God must visit commercially run old people’s homes and hospices to see the sum totality of life. Life is not unending youthfulness. Unfortunately, the point (singularly) lost is that the human bio-system houses not one but several bodies overlapping each other, inside and around the one physical frame.

One can have the youthful vigour of a forty-something but in fact be in their seventies. The mental mindset will express the thought paradigm of a seventy-plus age mentality and not a forty-something as their youthful vigour may suggest. Prayers need to accommodate the ongoing shift of this paradigm

The bottom line is that everyone I meet wants just one thing. That one thing being a peaceful life. What no one recognises or is prepared to accept is that turmoil, unacceptable events and unpleasant situations are the sum-reality of life. A peaceful life has to be lived alongside and in cooperation with the distaste of natural life: duality in motion. Until you are prepared to accept that life has pain and pleasure, you are not going to touch peace in your prayers.

Prayers are a method of creating, through auto-suggestion, an emotional world cocooning the self. The cocoon is only relative to you. You cannot extend it to others. You cannot hope to bring peace to the rest of humanity, where humanity is persecuting non-humans for meat on a minute-by-minute basis.

Old Prayers took place in a world where a goat and a tiger sat side by side and neither was required to become an actor in the drama of life and death. Why? Because the environment was self-sustaining.

But nature fell from grace.

It is not humans that fell from grace, but nature that fell from grace. And as her offspring, we participated with zealous callousness in her fall. We can rectify and assist nature in regaining her poise and composing herself into grace again, but it requires humans to change their own mindset.

For that, a hands-on, objective Prayer system is needed. Subjective Prayer systems will not do. Objective Prayer requires that humans stop trying to ‘master’ nature but co-operate and co-reside in her guardianship. She is a very advanced, intelligent and highly evolved Being in her own right. We are tiny cogs in her mechanism.

The Prayer we need is one that makes the effort of living within whatever nature provides us on a seasonal basis. Let famine come. Famine will go as and when it suits Her. You have to simply accept that you are not this life only, but you are an endless encasements of lives.

If only you had the ability to see your own past and your own future, you would realise the futility of gathering accoutrements for the worship of Greed-God.

Ideally, the Prayers you access must allow you to see without the blindfold over your ‘Eye’. ‘Eye’ is functioning even now, but your sensory apparatus is simply not groomed or polished enough to cognise the vision of that ‘Eye’.

To sense and see things the ‘Eye’ requires a whole-scale shift from a Greed based ‘internal’ symmetry to a Need based one.

A new vision of teaching from kindergarten upwards is needed, where harmony with nature is taught.

Guys, if you do not take serious stock of the situation, then ‘nature’ will kick us off her plate once again. She needs to do that in order to recompose her poise and grace. She has done this many a time in the past, and will do so again in the future, until finally we, the animal dwellers on her plate, realise that we have to protect each other and trust Her totally.

Ecology is the new Prayer paradigm. Ecology was the initial ‘old Prayer’, now lost to myth. Ecology is the only way forward.

It is up to the ordinarywallahs to roll up their sleeves and occupy their governments’ squares, demanding that all deep-earth excavation is stopped here and now. Mother Earth is screaming in pain and if do not take radical steps to stop this rape then She will kick our asses off this planet once again. You can forget cyberology’s enslavement of humans as a nightmare to fear. The permanent damage done to Mother Earth by excavating her physiology is the catalyst that will trigger a wipeout of humans from the face of this planet.

Let me here put a finishing touch to the thought I began with. I began with the following opening “You have two of the following: eyes, nostrils, ears, lungs, kidneys, ovaries, testicles, breasts, hands, arms, feet, legs along with numerous glands and miles of blood vessels.” If a biological epidemic ate away one half of each pair of these organs and limbs, how long would it be before you begin looking for a mechanism to defeat the epidemic?

European human greed is the pan-epidemic of this planet. Because of them, all humans are going to be wiped off the face of this planet. Field workers like myself are simply here to deliver this last-chance saloon message. However, the decision has to be the race Europeans’ to make.

Your lives.

Your choices.

Psychoanalysis

Ignorants’ paradise

Two females, one an orangutan, the other a female king cobra, are deep in conversation comparing notes on their newly acquired status as mothers, while taking long, adoring looks at their own creations. Yes, they created a new creation. A new life.

However, humans by comparison, like a rich man skilled in the arts of a butterfly, married to nostalgic humanism, believe that they alone experience paternalism: ah, self-analysis at the apex of egotistical arrogance.

Let me explain. Self-analysis is an over-inflated principle, enriched by invisible symbolic ghosts, lacking access to events in real-time, where truth laces through dreams or nightmares as a cocktail of an over-inflated wishful opinion of one’s own self-worth.

Now, into this heady mix let us throw the dice called immigration.

Yes, immigration.

A flux as old as time itself. Always invited by businesses and governments, yet seldom welcomed by people on the ground. Immigration, or migration, is a natural phenomenon exercised by all forms plant and animal life. The movement always has a purpose and its motivation is complex, but compelling.

Immigration to the United Kingdom falls neatly into the design and template set by nature.

The clash of two strange lifestyles’ customs and outlooks always begins with a claim of moral authority by both sides. Each is based on an internal vision of its own flamboyance, while viewing the other in negative and demeaning terms: a parallel treadmill refusing to merge, fearing dominance, conversion and loss of identity.

It’s an ideological explosion awaiting ignition.

Indian immigrants invited in desperation to fill the vacancies that the UK’s indigenous natives refused to take up, were amazed by the general view among these natives that they somehow were uncivilised, unsophisticated, ignorant and cowardly. The shock on the faces of the indigenous natives, when told about the many times an Indian solider single-handedly stood his ground in the face of overwhelming odds during inter-European wars.

The ideological fight for supremacy in the so-called second ‘world’ war (delusion of grandeur) was a European war in which we non-Europeans were begged to support, aid, assist, and die against an enemy who had never attacked our homeland or our lifestyle. The war was an inter-European argument and nothing more.

However, Indians, nurtured on calmness and on engaging gentle reflex responses to agitation, were considered cowards because their thought-process is embedded in the higher chakra of calmness, as opposed to the Anglo-Saxon emotional processor that is embedded in the lowest chakra of flight survival.

European psychoanalysis of the twentieth century is based on the race European’s low-chakra assessment of human emotional responses and reflections.

Thus, a flight-or-survival based effort at self-discovery will always fail in its psychoanalysis of bio-signatures not identical to its own racial and cultural norms.

A false paternalism based on a narrow bandwidth of morality will only give rise to odious pessimistic theory, celebrating the supremacy of a war mentality, entirely unaware that psychoanalysis of bio-signatures embedded at higher chakras is impossible, and that understanding the ideological, peaceful, flamboyance flowing from the higher chakra reference points cannot be understood.

People find it amazing each time I share the following: emotions change due not to experience but to the ongoing evolution of the bio-system itself. Evolution of a bio-system reconfigures communication receptors with the external world and along internal pathways simultaneously. This change called ‘ageing’ is the real reason for reappraising the world we interact with. The external receptors transmit and receive a constant stream of information. However, the internal pathways rearrange the information giving the impression of a ‘mature’ or ‘immature’ reactive response to a situation.

In reality, the internal pathways centered around the cultural/racial chakra release an electro-chemical agent adequate for the entire bio-system to behave within an acceptable pattern of behaviour for that chakra.

Globally, contemporary  psychoanalysts are tutored to parrot euro-centric methods that assume all humans are imprint of the race European. Herein lays abject ignorance of the fact that all humans are different racially, ancestrally, gender-wise and in their emotional heritage.

To dive off at a tangent for a moment: there is a massive knock awaiting the nonsensical belief in DNA as the solid bedrock of divine sobriety, complete in wit as a seer, with an impeccable memory which is used as a coherent cartography of tantalising unchallengeable fact. Not quite so, my dears, not quite so.

Reverting…

To take the example of the European residents of the United States who used to shout at the ‘Orientals’ for not speaking their minds, this just exemplifies the utterly nonsensical belief that current psychoanalysis is a valuable cross-cultural absolute science. It is neither a science, nor a wealth of collected studies of human internal mechanisms.

The animal kingdom, which includes humans, is not identical. Nor are we spiritually equal.

I have written in a previous post about the emotion of shame (Honour Killing) that carries far deeper, damaging, psychological change and pain than the idea that you are about to die. In the non-European world, death is understood and accepted as a change of one’s physical body. But an emotional social shame has to be endured for an entire memory (lifetime): this is the view from the higher chakra.

Now, compare this reality to one where shame is only a passing uncomfortable period of time, where death is an absolute end: this is the view from the lowest chakra. How on earth are the limited parameters designated by and defining the lowest chakra ever going to understand the pain of the higher chakra?

The orangutan and king cobra mothers share ‘motherhood’ only in the sense of the biological function they have undergone to create new life. Thereafter, their lifestyle parameters differ vastly. The mother of one will not be able to teach the child of the other effectively about survival.

The same ‘worlds-apart’ reality exists in the psychology of the races. Each race will have to organise its own investigation, study its own creed, and develop its own set of rules adequate to its own racial and cultural norms.

Humans have to realise that you cannot put the heart of a person of one race into the body of a person from a different race. Approach a motoring aficionado and that person’s blood vessels will threaten to rupture if you tell him that you are thinking of putting a diesel engine from a Nissan 4×4 into a Ferrari, or indeed just swapping over the gearboxes of the two cars. If it is so simple for a mechanic to appreciate that this cannot be done, then why, oh why, do you have a problem with the reality that cross-racial organ transplants cannot be done and will have dire consequences for the human race.

In the same vein, there does not exist just the one god. God is a multi-existence and has a different persona for each chakra-based race consciousness. Humans too are multi-faceted, thus, the different racial groups. Inter-breeding will not create the hybrid that I fear. To a lesser extent, the hybrid created by inter-racial organ donation and indeed by cross-racial blood transfusions will create another species within the human genome, and that new breed will have the upper hand and the capacity to finish off the current brood of humans totally. However, the real fear is the development of organs from stem cell technology. That technology will be the nail in the coffin as far as humans are concerned.

It will be the history of the Neanderthals all over again; all because Europeans will not stop their medical experiments or exporting their ignorance across the races.

Neanderthals were an extremely advanced, technologically capable species. They occupied this globe and the solar system in conjunction with their own hybrids. The Neanderthals were exporting their ‘masters of whatever we survey’ mentality in the same manner as the Europeans are doing. ‘Mastery’ over nature and the eco-system, along with interfering with natural selection, was their folly too. Wars were fought using technologies not yet ‘mastered’ by the race Europeans.

Prior to the Neanderthals another race chased the same folly resulting in planets in this solar system left barren. Thereafter, ignorant masters of cyber-technology destroyed each other. The hybrids created by the Neanderthals survived. Those hybrids are the Homo sapiens of today. Nature took a hand in the proceedings and punished the surviving Neanderthals. Time and the passing of age witnessed the loss of knowledge of ‘advanced technologies’.

We will begin the journey of self-destruction all over again if the Europeans do not take heed and rein in their thirst for commanding everything in sight. Cyber-technology is just around the corner and it will enslave humans once again. Hybrids will be created with the assistance of humans. And history will repeat itself all over again.

Racial psychoanalysis as opposed to racial profiling has the capacity to thwart the pattern of human enslavement by artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence is neither artificial nor is it benign. It is a viable life-form, but here I urge the curtailment of this life-form, lest it unleashes a type of inhumanity that even the most inhumane humans could not contemplate. The understanding of inner awareness gained through racial psychoanalysis of, by, and within each race will map how inner awareness provides an understanding of the oft asked question about where organic being initially come from.

So, please, stop this trade in developing ever-advancing, self-repairing artificial intelligence. Instead, give support to other races to develop their own psychoanalytic tools, via which their own culture and emotional norms can be better understood. This will allow us to live in mutual respect of the eco-system and of each other, otherwise the new hybrids will finish us off.

Because, when the hybrids arrive, Om will be replaced by Oops as our mantra…once again.

Age

Upon meeting me, people get confused about my blog-image and my chic dress style. Initial conversation revolves around the question of how I support devoutly spiritual atheism, whilst simultaneously championing a non-believer’s mindscape in defence of the irrational secular confusion about religious freedom. Then, people are confounded by my ability to be indiscriminately superstitious while also a staunch supporter of rites, rituals and practices observed by the ardently faithful; yet they find me strenuously defensive of interpersonal affection, sex, sexual interplay, sensuality and the worthlessness of humankind’s greed mindscape.

To me it all makes sense. However, to my inquisitors it all seems complicated, contradictory, and confusing. They cannot comprehend how I can admire beauty in a woman without the admiration progressing to another level. Feminine sexual allure does not trigger sexual intrigue or desire in those of my background. The panorama of female allure is pleasing, but at the horizon it remains. Males or females from my layer of occupation are not aroused by sexual allure, and secular inquisitors cannot comprehend this. And the phenomenon can’t be explained in words. The layer we operate from is only understood once the secular Being has transited from the lower layers and advanced into our mindscape-layer. However, once again, all of this is meaningless nonsense unless I can make sense of it for the ordinarywallahs.

The secular world is divided into segments of good ‘uns and bad ‘uns (GUBU) to coin a phrase.  GUBU is a reality in every lifestyle, occupation, tradition, belief system, and bonding ethos of the animal world. Take, for example, capitalist theory and idealism: a system operating at the superficial level, based on personal greed, adulation of wealth, and accumulation of material things. The top-dogs are those who have amassed more of everything than they know what to do with. The dogs at the bottom look up to them and ‘pray’, seeking supernatural intervention or a mystical mantra that will allow them to emulate the top-dog. Yet, they both fail to appreciate the reality of the controlling symmetry.

The symmetry in this case is a pyramid. This pyramid is based on inner bio-chemical gates, whose optimal functioning and timing decides how and when and to what degree materialism is accumulated. The gates at the higher end of the pyramid function to ensure greater accumulation, whereas the poor sods underpinning the pyramid have a bio-chemistry where the gates operate haphazardly. The reality is that the top-dogs could never function as the bottom dogs. If the mechanism that holds the essence of this pyramid was reversed then the entire pyramid would cease to function, hemorrhaging via social upheaval and anarchy until another pyramid was established.

The GUBU pyramids are pyramids within an overview-pyramid. This overview-pyramid is sustained by individual psyches. Each individual psyche contains countless strands of individual consciousness. Each consciousness is itself a container of at least one thousand and twenty two individual entities. Each unit entity is ambiguously called the Soul or Antrakarna and, inaccurately sometimes, Atman.

Expanding further, the multiples of individual psyche evolve and develop in the overview-pyramid, starting at the base and moving upwards. The overview-pyramid is itself in a containment field, where multitudes of overview-pyramids exist. Thus, each overview-pyramid is segmented into smaller autonomous pyramids. It is quite reasonable to maintain, for explanation purposes, that the individual psyche enters and creates the lower layers of a given overview-pyramid. Once there it has to amend, change, adapt and recognise the new rules, regime and the ethos of the containment field whereby the two create a new world environment. The combination of the two now becomes the new psyche. Thus, as a one body-movement it can advance further up the mega-pyramid scale. A mega-pyramid contains countless collections of overview-pyramids. The containment field of this environment is the initial ‘creation’ upon or within which the catalyst entity triggers the manual physical presence of creation. Along with the ‘birth’ of the containment field, this junction also witnesses the ‘birth’ of cosmic light and the cosmic sound.   The universe as you look up at the ‘dark sky’ of nighttime is in fact pure light. This light pervades everything, right deep down into the core of everything. It is the pulse of this light that is heard as the cosmic sound. The combination of the two ‘create’ creation as humankind see it.

Trial and error are the best teachers in this situation. The individual psyche has to move as one unit taking each component entity in the direction that best suits the end-game determined by each psyche. And each microscopic component entity has to play its part in the scheme of things. Each entity is ignorant of the bigger picture which is only visible to the psyche itself. But each entity has to do its best to assist, advance and aid the progression of the psyche it is contained within. The only way for that to happen is if each entity goes through its own trial and error, in order to advance and progress the collective benefits of the whole. This awareness only comes with experience and knowledge. A pool of collected knowledge is termed wisdom. Wisdom used for humanitarian purposes is ‘Age’.

Age as someone has said is not a number. They are correct. Age is experience. And when that experience is channeled for the benefit of others rather than the self, that experience is termed knowledge. To be prissy about it, it is not knowledge. It’s just information. A PhD is information-based reality only. It is not knowledge-based reality as anthropologists are only too aware off. Knowledge is several layers higher up the scale. But at times, I too fall victim to generalisation of terms…sorry.

Nevertheless, the gathering of this experience-information takes time.

Now let me make sense of this in a race-European mindscape. For example, your best teachers are your children – from when they are born until you are ready to die. They teach us humbleness. None of us would eat humble pie at the behest of another human-being as readily as we do when we have to back down in confrontations with our own children. At times, even when we know from our own experience-information that the child is making a mistake we accommodate our child’s wish. This humbleness is the social glue that holds social and societal structure intact.

Older and wiser civilisations never allowed young, bright, wet behind the ears, enthusiastic sparks, to head off on their own volition. The youth was always ‘guided’ and advised to err on the side of caution. Impetuousness was anathema and older mature voices reasoned against it.

The misery we see today, however, is of western governments run by wet-behind-the-ears kids who are themselves not in long-term personal relationships and don’t have grown-up children or grandchildren, and yet are foaming at the mouth to tell us how, why, and what to do with our own lives.

This is why the European pyramid is dysfunctional and fast leading the rest of humanity to fragment this planet, or extinguishing her protective atmospheric blanket or far more sinister, whereby all animals will become cyber-borgs.

This type of mismanagement leads to one war after another. It is based entirely on unrefined, uncontrollable and uncontainable sexual aggressive energy where the bio-system function has not yet ‘matured’ into rational reason.

Politicians should only be handed the highest office once they have lived the full gambit of secular life. However, history of the European mindscape indicates that that is not the case.

The European mindscape is a prime example of an individual race-psyche functioning out of sync with the nature of the overview-pyramid. Now do you understand how one race-psyche, in this case the European, with close to a billion individual animal entities termed ‘humans’, is steeped in seeking satisfaction from wholesale blood-letting and destruction of anything that gets in its way?

Race-European has annihilated races in north and south America, Australia, New Zealand and Tasmania to mention a few places. If it wants to be remembered and admired as India is, then it must emulate India when that was the global leader. The majority of land areas of Europe are named after Indian governance of this land mass. Upon her peaceful withdrawal it left behind affection and admiration of her spiritual ethos. Buddhaji was the universal figure of worship in Europe. Physically and consciously none can recall this reality let alone the mastery of this galaxy using technology secreted away in Indian scriptures. This technology allowed our ancestors to travel to the nearest ‘star’ in minutes. Travel into the middle of the galaxy was a normal taken-for-granted reality. But it all changed. The psyche governing that episode changed. A new psyche replaced it. But the new psyche still carries within its own memory banks the previous psyches’ existence and efforts. The template still remains.

Race-European has a choice. I do not want the fragmentation of this planet. Nor do I want an accelerated fry-up by depletion of the planet’s atmospheric blanket. And I certainly do not want to have humans and animals to have electro-mechanical body parts as if we are machines. If race-European does not stop its current headstrong stupidity then our seniors will step in to extinguish race-Europeans totally. And that would be sad and a step backwards. No, race-European has to take responsibility and amend the evil it has practiced, by open-heartedly giving back the lands mentioned above, that are under its illegal and unlawful occupation, to the races who were there before its arrival. This one act of humbleness will stop the relentless rape of the planet’s depleting mineral resources. It is the deep earth excavation of her mineral resources that will fragment this planet into non-existence. Yet if race-European hands governance back to the indigenous dwellers of those occupied lands and then sets up a global body to re-draw the map of Africa reflecting her true identity, then that will stop the exploitation of that land and her people by the Chinese. Race-European can either take a mature global lead or remain blood-thirsty, lacking confidence as a human race in fear that it will lose itself if it matures into a fully fledged member of the human race.

It is amusing when an individual entity terms itself a complete psyche during conversation with me; it does not recognise that it is part of a psyche trying to align itself into the new environment of the new pyramid it has entered. It is like an immigrant trying to settle into a new country learning the new ethos. It takes time. Time is experience, where gathering of information is based on a collective set of experiences. The combination of the two is called Age.

Age, truly, is not a number; however, it is not too far from it either. In human terms Age donates a number per se. Thus, in that context Age is a number. And all government authority should have a cut-off line, an age below which an individual cannot and should not be allowed into position of authority, at any cost.

A bright and brilliant mind lacking personal growth, attained via child rearing, will simply not do – a grandparent is the minimum requirement for an active politician.

Age, in that case, is redefined as experience based on collection  of information.

Pandora’s Box

Sex and the Planet

From the Northern European Plain to the Plain of France, crisscross many grand majestic rivers. In the east, the Volga and Dnieper hold sway while the Danube, Reine, and Seine flow to their rest into the surrounding salty sea. Drinkable water eventually merges into undrinkable water.

At the foothills of the Matterhorn run a selection of crystal clear mountain streams. You can stand in awe of how pure the water appears. Yet, ask any local and they will inform you how poisonous the water is. Why? Because it is enriched with heavy industrial metals spewed out by the mega-intensive industrial furnaces. These furnaces are located from the Northern European Plain all the way to the Plain of France.

However, water for human consumption is removed from the majestic rivers, filtered, treated with more chemicals, and finally pumped to homes.

Moving on, do an Aunty (my name for the internet) search (oh, by the way my name for computers is ‘fruit-machines’) and seek out images of the vast miles and acreage of floating debris covering the planet’s soul, her Seas. The very life-gift of the planet is being progressively poisoned by organic chemistry via synthetic and polymer plastics.

Millennia before the popular advent of carbon chemistry, alchemy was secreted in the planet’s philosophical influences and forgotten traditions. This was taken into the industrial age where copious and far more poisonous compounds were created.

But that wasn’t enough. The battle for racial supremacy demanded a far more lethal and fatal weapon. The atomic bomb was re-invented without any of its original failsafe components in place.

Just prior to the atomic bomb one race reached out in its desire for domination, and copying from the ancient Indian scriptures it manufactured an incredible instrument of fear. The V1 and V2 rockets rained down on the British Isles.

Naturally, the progression of ignorance means we now await the power of the V2 technology harnessed in tandem with the nuclear technology, and then the Europeans will successfully travel the solar system at speeds unheard of as yet. Wonderful, no?!

The V2 technology has already progressed into cruise missiles and drones, albeit the fanfare ought to go to the satellite rockets (descendents of the V2 rockets) taking a payload to neighboring celestial globes. The natural progression of this technology meant unmanned flying apparatus would carry out set functions – remote killing.

We have already seen the next stage of this ignorant-technology whereby an ‘imprisoned’ political leader was, having given up armed struggle to free his occupied land, ‘cooked’ using microwave technology. Prior to his death, he behaved like someone who had lost his marbles. The ongoing squabble about his death – did he die from one or other of the nuclear elements injected into him – just diverts us, obscuring the real cause of his death. This microwave technology is going to mean that areas of urban habitation will be ‘fried’ using outer space based satellites bouncing ground-based initiator beams.

I am associated, as a minor field functionary, with a body that is charged with the responsibility of controlling human ventures, lest humans fragment this planet. Our Seniors have stepped in to safeguard this planet by wiping humans off the face of it if necessary, using complicated and unbelievably advanced telekinetic equipment, and then resetting the global environment ‘back by many millions of years’ so the entire shooting match can begin all over again.

This planet is at the edge of a non-descript galaxy in an isolated barren area of the cosmos; but this planet is all we have. There is no other like it out there. Well, not within the means of current technology. And if the current activity of deep earth excavation for her minerals, carbon, and precious gems does not stop, which those of my level consider to be the rape of this planet, then without warning the Seniors will reset the clock.

To put it simply, the very natural resources (being excavated) are the single reason why the sun’s damaging rays are deflected from frying all the living species on this planet. Humans can argue that all mineral resources are there for pillage, and then hope that once exhausted the technology is found to allow mass exodus from this planet and occupation of another world somewhere out there. Yes, fine, but what about the basic building blocks of life without which human life perishes? What happens to those?

Race Europeans have a highly selective, amnesiac, self-delusional over-appreciation of their own capabilities. Their type of delusional nonsense has been attempted in the past and will be opted for again in the future. But at each point, before irreparable damage is done to the self-sustainability of this planet, the Seniors have wiped selected or indeed whole human races off the face of this globe. No warning. Just a simple decision and the  button will be pushed. Minor culls of humanity have happened many a time. But a major wipe-out has happened only a few times in all three of the four Ages.

It is also true that the array of suns we see as stars are in fact reflective mirages, as very few suns actually exist in our own galaxy, and it has to be said that Albert Einstein and his colleagues have not yet got their finger on the pulse of that truth and its meaning.

All of this very basic information is contained in the various scriptures of the old India: Aryadesh, Nobleland.

These are the self-same scriptures now housed and digitalized by various governments that are trying to unlock and decode their content. Albert Einstein used an aspect of his minor inner awareness along with his intellect and his secular comprehension of the Torah to formulate his famous theory. But like all intelligent people, he missed the point. The point is that for all the knowledge and clear-cut intellect one very important ingredient is missing. That ingredient is kept shrouded, although it is available to all Sentient beings. What is it? Inner awareness.

We, from that old land of knowledge and inner awareness give indications, but the message is seldom understood. We shared the fun of gunpowder and the Europeans used it for destruction and domination. We shared the peaceful purpose of a wingless projectile along with details of its powering system, and the Europeans have partially used it for draconian domination having reasonably mastered the projectile but failed to unravel the powering system. We shared basic knowledge for a powerbase, only for the Europeans to use it to visit destructive and ongoing misery on other humans.

I, for one, had a say in opposing the dissemination of any further knowledge and guidance with the Europeans. Interestingly, they were utilising the genuine goodwill of the scripturally aware who come from a much lower stratum than the one my group occupies, to unravel the secrets of the wingless projectile’s powering system, but we have put a stop to that for the time being. This technology would have allowed humans to reach our nearest ‘star’ within ninety minutes or so; or, with even better understanding of the technology, to reach it within a matter of a few minutes.

So why did we stop the exchange of knowledge?

Information is not meant for domination and subjugation. As collective occupiers of this planet and the solar system, the responsibility for thoughtful and balanced guardianship demands that we examine each and every step of our attempts to ‘improve’ on nature.

Europeans have totally missed the point, in that ‘nature’ is itself the ultimate technology operating at its optimum best.

Nature has, in her databank, information of all past expressions of various global and celestial incidents and has an absolute awareness of what passes for the future. Europeans wander the globe unaware that the future is cemented in the same way that the past seems to them to be unchangeable. The future is not some unseen, irrational series of events. On the contrary, the future makes the past. Thus, the past plays itself out within parameters which are themselves pre-ordained by the future.

Unfortunately, the danger here is the Europeans’ ignorant desire to misunderstand the present and ignore the future while fattening their wealth. And it’s a wealth that will no more grant them a long, disease-free life than it will grant them access into the dominions through which the ‘soul’ can be made to escape this prison called earth. Ask yourself, do you want to move freely in the cosmos or do you want to restrict your adventures to environments where only an exact amount of earth-air exists?

Interstellar travel automatically involves the sentient beings’ ability to exist without the confines of the prison-earth environment. Imagine if fish could live outside water and be without gills. They too would roam the terra firma like us. Likewise, an ability exists to travel within this galaxy as her own ‘children’, but that ability requires a totally different approach by humans, especially the Europeans.

Aunty (internet) was devised by a need to share information amongst colleagues. Once again, ignorance ruled the need/desire and the end result is that now inhuman, affectionless, power-based, sex is rife and freely available over Aunty’s network. Aunty has been vulgarised and thoroughly violated. And as soon as one shocking activity becomes ‘normal’ then another sadistic vulgarity is streamed in order to sustain flagging hits of any given website. Congratulations for creating a tool to de-humanise women.

The very women without whom you as a man cannot be born.

Womankind is brutalised by mankind and subjected to violence and ongoing derogatory sexual practices which, if done in front of you to your own mother and daughters, would see you arming yourself to the teeth to kill the abuser. But hey, it’s ok to watch the same acts done to a woman with no family blood connection to you. The reality is, you are an equal participant of the abuse as the abuser themselves. Pat yourself on your back for becoming a groomer of sexual abuse.

Europeans fail to understand that each of us is a bio-signature, most compatible with a bio-signature whose resonance is similar to our own. Of course, there are exceptions to the rule. Those born with gay trig-mantra as their bio-signature ought to be duly respected and allowed to function within their own bio-field.

However, bio-fields have porous membrane. The bio-field emits and receives ‘information’ that affects and changes the bio-signature’s perception levels. The bio-field does not have a moral or ethical compass as practiced by functioning societies. It simply gathers, absorbs, and transmits information.

Thus, the capacity to function and interact with other humans means that your own bio-field is saturated and laden with what in human terms passes for negative templates. For whatever reason, as an example, the race European world seeks and participates in numerous sexual encounters, thus poisoning their own bio-field and passing that poison-laden bio-signature to their descendents. A poisoned bio-field has an automatic built-in trigger that functions as an aberration of humanity’s norms and turns it, per the example we are using of perverse sexual behaviour, into the accepted and normative template. We know that sexual intrigue is an inescapable fact of life; but it need not be put into practice as a lifestyle.

I lived on three continents during my childhood. The third was Europe. On each of those continents, children’s natural curiosity for exploration involved physical sexual exploration. Kids played games like ‘mummies and daddies’ and ‘doctors, nurses and patients’. The games were a cover and excuse for our curiosity to examine the physical anatomy of the other sex. But these games were played within our own age group.

This sexual curiosity evolved with age into being attracted to an older person. And each, within the group I grew up with, had a tale to tell about such encounters. But it was a mutual-appreciation venture. All older people were by no means attracted into this, just as all the people I grew up with have not indulged in such activity with a younger age group.

I, of course, as detailed in a previous post, went to very heights of sexual awareness and was tutored in that environment to understand sexual triggers and how to coordinate the chemical/desire paradigm as opposed to being a pawn within it.

Thus, the current fashion of seeking retribution for having been groomed as if you were an unwilling participant in the process is an indicator of a poisoned bio-field in operation. Because, had the initial bio-field integrity remained unsoiled then the chance of being groomed would not have increased.

As an old old fashioned Sikh, I have absolutely zero tolerance for the abuse of kids by adults. Those adults should be hounded into submission. That type of interaction is utterly unacceptable.

You also have to realise that you are the sum total of your parents’ attitude and hidden desire at your inception, which then is registered in you as your normal template. This is where bio-signature is of vital importance and plays a significant part in how you perceive associations with others and external impulses. This manifests in the following way: a compromised bio-signature would lean at its subconscious level towards an environment where an abuser could groom that bio-signature.

Why?

Because an adult enjoying free, irresponsible, unattached sex means imbues the bio-signature of their offspring with every ounce of their own desire, ambition, anticipation, and sexual indulgence. You as the parent are therefore equally responsible for the predator who takes advantage of your teenage child.

Because your behaviour has influenced the tolerance threshold of that teenage child into assuming that it can accept, participate and indulge in the invitation-seduction it is being charmed with. This is why older civilisations are relentlessly strict about social behaviour and interaction between teenage/young adults and adults.

What you sow, your offspring will pay for.

Having said that, look at the morality and ethics of sex and relationships.

In my childhood, I was fully conversant with male gay sexuality. They were called homosexuals then. We kids picked up the terminology from the older kids. Female gay sexuality was not openly spoken about but we assumed it existed. And, yet, adult males were also frequently seen walking hand in hand as an expression of trust and of friendship that went deeper than blood-brother relationship. Such examples of men walking hand-in-hand or indeed women walking hand-in-hand were never considered sexual. It never was sexual.

Youths of opposing gender could walk hand in hand, albeit only up to a certain age after which was frowned upon. Occasionally, parents walked hand-in-hand with their adult children of the opposite sex. Adults and kids shared beds, men shared beds, women shared beds, but sex was never the agenda or the result. Thus when the popstar Michael Jackson was accused of sharing his bed with kids, outside of the piously perverted Anglo-Saxon world the rest of the world’s races really saw nothing untoward.

In the same way, until Europeans forced their own prudish guilt on naked Africans or for that matter on Indian rural dwellers, the idea that nakedness was ‘rude’ never entered the minds of those races. The prudery, inferiority, lack of sexual self-worth and self-esteem of the ‘Christian’ Europeans is the cause of a lopsided sexual awkwardness foisted on the rest of the global community.

A powerful non-European culture is tolerated by the Anglo-Saxons whereby one man can have five wives. Yet a weaker non-European culture where a woman can have five husbands is frowned upon and the cultural practice is slowly being wiped out because the Anglo-Saxon paymasters disapprove. The very same Anglo-Saxons mouth disapproval about harems – a concept that to this day it fails to understand – yet they bed-hop like nobody’s business.

The integrity of a harem has never been examined by the Anglo-Saxon, but apparently his own ‘yesterday I was in love and today I am not’ culture is normal and acceptable. Where is the responsibility of ‘cherish, loyalty and faithfulness unto death’ in this mentality?

Sexual intrigue and racial violence and the need to dominate and subjugate are closely linked. The energy for both dwells in the same spot. It emanates from the same point but differs in terms of the direction the energy impulse travels. If the base chakra energy outlet is aimed at the kundalinli chakra, then you will get the aberration that is the European mentality where everything has to be re-moulded to that ‘wave’ of thinking. By contrast, if the energy gate allows the sexual energy to travel higher up the chakra symmetry then a caring, affectionate, consolatory, humane attitude prevails.

If the Europeans could appreciate this fact of an identical energy impulse that manifests in two different mentalities, then it might be possible for the Europeans to rein in their excessive zeal for unnatural, inhumane, violent behaviour.

Simultaneously, Europeans have to realise that you cannot create a new toy without making sure that its creation will not subject another regardless of race or animal value into subjugation and humiliation. Nature has a way of dealing with something it no longer has a purpose for. It is called extinction.

Currently beautiful animals are on the verge of extinction due to the mass killing of them by the Europeans during their ‘hunt’ mentality era – shooting to kill animals who were way in the distance and of no threat to you or yours. This type of negative mass extinct has serious repercussions. The natural habitat of murdered animals is increasingly being commandeered for formal agriculture.

Nature in her wise fairness will extract an equal amount of punishment from the very race that coordinated the mass hunt-killing of those defenseless animals. If we take the idiotic back-to-front theory of Darwinian nonsense, even the Europeans have to hold their heads in shame for killing the very vehicle that theory claims humans emanated from.

Each of those ‘lower order’ animals had a pivotal and vital part to play in the evolution process of human. If one predator or its victim did not exist as it had then the whole shooting match of us looking as we do would have been very different. Instead of giving respect to our fellow animals, Europeans are forever abusing them in the name of superiority. There is not enough shame in the very casket that houses European consciousness for them to feel the shame I allude to. So I will not say that they should be ashamed for the mass murder of defenceless animals. Yes, those animals were murdered, not killed.

The industrial revolution that has enslaved humans was the thoughtless product of European mentality. Their desire to be superior within their own ranks then spilled over into dominating, via abjectly humiliating other races. An Indian television news anchor of an American network shared the humiliation of slave owners ordering one slave to defecate in the mouth of another slave. The TV anchor, Martin Bashir, who used the expression to put Sarah Palin in her place for making another one of her anal remarks, was sent on paid leave from his job (and no doubt will be sacked).

Such is the type of back-to-front idiocy that belies the European mentality vis-à-vis modernity. The industrial furnaces of pan-European nations should never have been built without investigation of their consequences. In the same way, refined food should never have been mass produced, since its disease-laden and disease-causing potential was known from the beginning. But hey, does the race European care about the health of the masses when there’s a quick buck to be made?

So what can be done even at this late stage?

It is down to each individual ordinarywallah race European person to stand up and be counted and form a collective to demand that the mega-industries change tack. With us at the grassroots level collaborating, those industries have no chance of surviving let alone winning this fight. And their agenda must be halted before they cause global human implosion.

We are being diseased from the chemically filled food we eat. That chemistry has to have a reaction. That reaction is the demise of the human race as we know it. And guess what? Since race Europeans eats more of this chemically enriched food than all the other races put together…well, you can work the rest out for yourselves.

I am sorry, but the future of the humans in a world dominated by race European is bleak, very very bleak, unless we take affirmative action as of now. A modernity in which machines do all our work for us will render humans enslaved by the very machines that race European has been hell-bent on creating in its pursuit of ever-greater profit. Just what are we humans in this race European dominated world going to do with all the spare time on our hands?

Twiddle our fingers, I suppose. Prudery will prevent us from making love, though we still have uninvolved, irresponsible, emotionless sex, I guess. But for how long, before machines replace our human partners in that enjoyment also?

Sikhism & Chakras: Kundalini & Yogi Harbhajan Singh

In my book ‘Mischievous Mystic’ (considered too contentious for publication), I indicate how many a chakra is ignored in favour of a normativised acceptance of, and reference to, only seven of them.

NOTE: Mischievous Mystic is an account of my life.  I detail how, born with ESP I soon learned to button my lip lest I received an open-palm smack across the face; and how ESP was developed, and of a future where ‘human hybrids’ will devastate humanity as we know it. The book is hard hitting, however, about the current European Empire and its psychopathic nature…not nice reading if you happen to be  race European, thus it is considered unpublishable.

To begin with, please remember, as I am constantly at pains to remind everyone, that Awareness is Complex, Confusing, and Contradictory. This triumvirate reality is assimilated from birth as a result of ongoing awakening from previous births. It can’t be spoon-fed.

Okay, so let’s get some of the ambivalent, Machiavellian, pseudo-philosophical adjunct debate cooked in an oven of over-imagination where fertile masterpieces are baked in wishful brothels built on out-of-the-way piety fantasy, totally out of the way.

Chakras are not a ganglion, nor are they a junction point, nor an area where several of the physical pathways and routes congregate or coexist.

Let me explain. Ask an amputee, even years after the amputation, as to how often they get an itch at some point along the length of the nonexistent limb. They will tell you that it happens, and happens quite often, in some individuals. While nothing physical exists, however, they still feel an itch, and at times they actually itch the point where they feel the sensation.

Now let’s bring this around to ancient Arya Vedic knowledge, which details the following:

Each bio-system has multitude of bio-signature-frames…inaccurately termed ‘subtle bodies’ (more about that another day) overlapping and interwoven into and onto the actual physical bio-frame. Each of these bodies is a separate independent bio-signature with its own mind, in which resides its thoughts. These thoughts are separate from the thoughts of the physical frame. For example, after a heart transplant, the thoughts of the recipient also change, because now he has two currents of thoughts co-existing. And in the same manner where brain transplants have also become a normal procedure – although all that will need realigning in that case is to put names to pictures of relatives and close associates for the bio-system to have points of reference – two currents of thoughts will co-exist.

In that situation (brain transplant) the sum total of thoughts will change somewhat, and will seem more profound than the change of thoughts after a heart transplant. People assume that a brain transplant will radically alter all thoughts. No, that will not happen because thoughts are the sum total of a relationship of all the other organs of any given bio-frame working in cooperation. Thus, a new brain will have only a small spectrum within which to operate out of sync, as the very spectrum it has to operate in is controlled automatically by the unifying energy of all the organs of a given bio-frame.

The same principle governs the function and interplay of chakra ‘energy’ to its physical relative.

Chakras are an independent entity and thought system; not an energy per se. This system, where it intersects the bio-frame causes a flux. The points where the sensation is felt is at the bio-intersection of nerves, blood vessels, and glands. If one surgically removed the gland and the nerves at this point a sensation would still register, due to the impact this interaction has on the local cells and blood vessels. The resultant wave of this contact is felt by the nerves along the blood vessels and the blood, right into the heart, the brain and the rest of the body. And don’t forget each cell has at least seventy thousand working parts to it; and each cell and its parts have their own consciousnesses.

The point that is misunderstood and needs correcting is that the chakra interaction is not an output of an impulse by the glands’ interaction with the nerves and blood vessels of the gland itself. Furthermore, what is not openly understood is that the chakras exist outside, surrounding, the body. Thus, simultaneously, the chakras exist internally and externally to a given bio-system; they exist in the frontal aspect of a body, as well as in the back, legs and arms, and of course (as well documented) along the pathways of the spine.

The much published and gleefully consumed information about the seven chakras housed along the spine in ascending order is the stuff that most people assume to be the sum total of the chakras. Thus, we have the base chakra at the base of the spine. The second chakra is located on the spine opposite the navel. The third is opposite the point, below the diaphragm, where the front of the rib cage terminates. The fourth is behind the point where the heart is located. The fifth is at the bottom of the neck, behind the base of the throat. The sixth is towards the middle of the head at the level corresponding to the point between eyebrows and ears. The seventh is the dip, the indentation, at the top of the head.

And then comes the Marie Antoinette of the chakras: the irresistible and misunderstood Kundalini chakra. Often spoken of in hushed terms, and usually by the holier-than-thou chakra hijackers possessing little knowledge and over-inflated glossy-magazine cover sense of their ‘are you out there’ astral ability, is the eighth chakra. It is located at the lowest point of the trunk of the body – difficult for men to find, but much easier to ascertain in the female anatomy. Two centimeters above, internally, the area between the anus and vagina is this cashmere jewel-bedecked cipher of misinformation, pathological reverence for which sways between God-like status and that of the Devil’s playful mistress.

The kundalini chakra and its energy impulse has a unique pathway totally independent of the spinal dual-carriageway. Yes, it does interplay with the spinal motorway, but it has its own path. This energy has a direct influence and affects the heart, as well as the seventh chakra based midway in the head/brain area. Screw this chakra and you’ve well and truly screwed the emotional tide as well as the rhythm of the heart. This is one chakra you do not touch nor interfere with under any circumstances, at all. It has its own governance and operates best if left alone.

The kundalini chakra is the counter-balance mechanism to the main physically-based chakra expressions. You can mess with the other chakras to a point, because they will be brought under reasonable control by this mechanism without your knowledge. But start messing with the masterpiece that is the kundalini chakra… and you’ve had it. We from our level do not touch this mechanism. If held in respect, this chakra has the capacity to control the severity of a heart attack (though a genetically unbalanced kundalini chakra is, it must be pointed out, incapable of doing so).

The kundalini chakra is a little beauty, and must be left to her own devices.

A Buddhism/Hinduism chakra interlude:

The Buddhist chakra system had to succumb to the prevailing Vedic formulation several centuries after Buddhaji had initially cleared the air about chakras (some six centuries before the attributed time of birth of Jesus). About a century and a half after the formation of Sikhism, Hinduism was formally established. Hinduism was a creation made to encompass varieties of Vedantic rite, ritual and knowledge practiced in the countries and princely states of the old Aryadesh and comprising India, Pakistan and Afghanistan, in order to bring a coherence that might be easily grasped by the nonplussed British colonialists.

Each of these Aryadesh countries and states also had their own language; so a common language was established too in an approximate amalgamation of the variety of words and idioms strewn across northern India. The language, Hindi, was that of everyday commerce and interaction, the slang of its time. It was not the language of a religion, taken nowadays to be Hinduism, but an aspect of what Hindiusm really was and is: a culturally-respectful vehicle of commonality, a paean to the fact and reality of pluralism. And yet, in the very process of its rising collective presence, bringing several hundred million of people together, Hinduism gained supremacy; and overpowered much of what it originally sought to respectfully amalgamate.

Such too had been the experience of Buddhism a long time ago: piqued by its desire to bring together disparate and valuable kingdoms of thought across Aryadesh, and consequently led to subsume the same, until they and it were diluted into a one-size-fits-all symmetry. Thus was Buddhaji’s clarity about the chakras lost, leaving varieties of Buddhism across the globe each as different as the taste of the water from these regions.

Nothing remains pure for long.

Sikhism and chakras:

In Hinduism, the root chakra at the base of the spine is the initial power that has to be ‘energised’. Then the same process is repeated as one moves higher up the spine. At the point of the heart chakra, one has attained the level of an advanced Sant and Svami. Then at the ‘mastery’ of the throat chakra one has advanced in to uber-refined awareness, although the journey carries on.

Purity and unconditional detachment, as well as being able to see the oneness of the Creator’s presence throughout the physical world, are the minimum abilities one has to have mastered, in the absolute, in order to deal with the material world; and this is usually only accessible to the very advanced. And in fact, once the throat chakra has been mastered, (actually, it is not mastered but assimilated with), one seldom interacts with the material world of people.

However, a title conferred by a very ancient language for one who permanently resides and functions from the throat chakra while simultaneously interacting with the secular world is that of ‘Sikh’. So, Sikh is a person who has successfully assimilated the throat chakra and does not dilutes its principles in dealing with the secular world.

Guru Nanakdevji, who rejuvenated and refreshed an ancient truth dove-tailing it into the prevailing modernity, set this high standard as the minimum entry point for any who wished to follow and expound his teaching; with utmost humbleness the prerequisite to even being considered entry, for one is still learning, one is a student of the art; but it is a complete misnomer to regard a Sikh as a naïve learner placed on the bottom rung of the ladder.

Having said that, it is equally wrong to assume that having been born to parents who practice and attain the status of Sikhi one is de facto also a Sikh. As a secular everyday person, even a religious one, a person cannot in an absolute sense be born into Sikhism. You attain Sikhism through advancement of awareness. Only Guru Nanakdevji was born as a Sikh, others had to be ordained into it.

How Sikhism differs with respect to the chakras is in its enunciation, in the common everyday prayers detailed by Guru Nanakdevji, of twenty five chakras – of which the throat chakra (whose attainment usually signals the topmost achievement by some, and is accompanied by their retreat from the material world) is merely the first. To become Sikh one must traverse through, and assimilate with, all twenty five before attaining the right to trip the light fantastic permanently.

To add further complexity to this – where we’ve gone from identifying seven chakras, to adding the kundalini chakra, before pointing to the existence of twenty-five actual chakras – is a little-known fact (or at least one not shared with the masses): each chakra comprises its own multilayered existence. Some have four, others have eight or nine, while others have eighteen. You will fall down the scale of any given chakra if you fail to operate within the very detailed layers comprising each chakra. Each chakra has its own regulatory thought and administration centre. Each chakra has the authority to fail your progress and thus downgrade your access to refined Awareness. I will share more of the detail of this environment in a subsequent post.

Guys, this stuff is not easy as it first sounded when work began at the base chakra.

For ordinarywallahas, the Hindu chakra system is a must that they have to master. For a Sikh the journey of self-discovery only truly begins from the throat chakra. Having said which, one cannot just begin a journey of self discovery from any but the lowest most chakra that your given bio-signature is designed for…and mess up the chakra system, and Dame Kundalini will mess you up good and proper in turn.

Thus, the Sikh chakra system doesn’t in fact differ from the original system clarified by Buddhaji. Though in current times there is a sense of the Sikh chakra system as a tentacle of Hinduism, as diluted by the latter’s own simplicity.

Sikhism & Kundalini:

Yogi Harbhajan Singh found fame in California teaching kundalini to those who had self importance embedded in them as a racial trait. They in turn now teach kundalini yoga with all the misplaced pomp of buying a must-have classic parfum over the counter of a Parisian boutique counter situated in the middle of the Gobi desert. It is both sad and utterly wrong. These people may be, and in fact are, fellow practicing Sikhs, but they are wrong; no matter how much I must respect their defence and claims to being right.

The point they have missed is that humbleness is a prerequisite to assimilating even the base chakra with one’s bio-frame, let alone the other chakras. You can’t assume that you’ve been chosen to teach the world, and then speak of kundalini awakening in the same breath! No way guys, no way.

Now let me make sense of this drama.

A negative into a positive:

Yogi Harbhajan Singhji had a role to play in the scheme of things. Consciously he did not know he had this role nor what it was: he simply went about teaching about kundalini chakra so that others in turn, non-Asian Sikhs, would go forth and spread that teaching. But his role, and a crucial one at that, was to initiate arrogance into self analysis. Why? Because only arrogance can challenge arrogance.

Now, I have steadfastly maintained that North and South America, Australia, New Zealand and Tasmania have to be freed from the European Empire. The Europeans have to hand these lands back to their original inhabitants. The arguments and the policy needed to revert to rightful ownership cannot be achieved by the Asian or African race thought paradigms.

It can only be achieved by the Sikhs who follow Yogi Harbhajan Singhji’s teaching. An Asian following his teaching will fail. It requires a mentality steeped in visual Sikhism, as are his followers, who have the mental dexterity to argue points with the European Empire’s masters from a race-thought paradigm consonant with their own.

This is why I am forever at pains to remind my listeners that advancing and advanced Awareness isn’t a simple matter but is in fact shrouded and grounded in the Trinity of Contradiction, Confusion and Complication.

Kundalini is wrong yoga. However, to free the occupied lands from the European Empire requires the raising of the kundalini. A prime example of Trinity C in operation.

Finally, a note to Asian Sikhs:

To all my fellow Asian Sikhs the world over, I share the following. In the early 1980s you belittled me when I contacted you about teaching yoga from Gurdwaras. Nowadays you are falling head over heels teaching not just yoga but the dangerous kundalini yoga at that.

Today, I invite you to consider the following statement; “You have to earn the right to practice Sikhism, and then after that earn the privilege of becoming a Khalsa. Simply born into a practicing Sikh family does not make you a Sikh. You have to live the code of Sikhism daily, moment by moment. Can you? Sikhism’s yoga starts from the throat chakra. Did you even know that? My fellow Sikhs, please, do not dilute the privilege of Sikhism by repackaging it into the lesser frameworks of secular rules and rites. Please don’t do that. I can only ask, and I have asked. The rest is up to you.”

One of the responsibilities required to be a Sikh is to acquire detailed education about each and every religious scripture, preferably in their mother tongue. Then comes the responsibility to correct aberrations practiced by the faithful of those religions, without demeaning them. The authority of this responsibility has to be exercised with due cultural care and respect. All this is just one of several ‘duties’ you have to have mastered.

Being a Sikh is not only about standing out in the crowd wearing the 5 Ks.

It is a damn sight more than that.

Meditation Parts I & II

Part I: Simpleton’s Hopscotch 

The problem with meditation is that it is simple. It is the one talent both intellectuals and simpletons have in common. It is its simplicity that causes confusion, compelling its admirers to chase shadows as yet unformed.

The search for the elusive spy – who walks like a king, cloaked in myth and shrouded in the language of duplicitous rationality, giving optimism to trumped-up theories while evading all attempts at being tamed like a domesticated animal – beguiles and bemuses.

So why is this simpleton’s hopscotch so damn confusing?

Because we are all too intelligent, that’s why.

Ordinarywallahs have one great fixation – locating their Godliness. Wherein the ideology of a marriage between ego and the improbable is founded on a system of literally misunderstood coincidence, whereby they are pulling bunnies out of an imaginary hat, telling everyone their self-delusion is a reality.

So does that mean we from our background have any better idea of how to disentangle the contradictions, confusions and complexities that are part of the unfathomable? No, we are as lost as the ordinarywallahs, though we are more adept at reading the signposts of the unfathomable, thus giving us unprecedented privilege and insight. The kind of insight that we use to claim that the light of the inner eye seen by ordinarywallahs is merely part of their overactive imagination, while our own is the pukkah entity.

…..

Moving on, there is little doubt that you are the king of all you survey – even the lawn of the mental asylum in which you are a long-term resident. The asylum that is also your freedom. Welcome to freedom. Welcome to rust-bucket Earth. Where the Anglo-Saxon, claiming to protect you from a ‘terrorism’ of its own wily invention, has created an asylum overrun with CCTV cameras that record your every step, your every word, your every sigh. Your freedom: an asylum founded by and run on the principle of psychopathic Anglo-Saxon fear-based religious intolerance. And you? You are a willing, paid-up member thereof – swallowing the state-PR pill in which all are terrorists who do not glory in the self and the individual as the highest of God’s creation.

Now cast your mind back to the ordinarywallah’s fixation: the search for internal Godliness. Doesn’t seem so simple now, does it, mired as it is in contradictions and confusion.

…..

Recall that in the 1970s the Palestine Liberation Organisation hijacked and blew up aeroplanes in the desert. It organised the murder of athletes at an Olympic Games. Decades later, a machine gun assault on international cricketers in Pakistan took place. In another episode, innocent worshippers were gunned down for daring to pray at a place that practiced alternative worshipping methods. If politicians at the time of the early PLO activity had drawn an iron curtain then two political movements – the West and the Soviets – would have gone on to enslave the humans of rust-bucket Earth.

In fact, that is what happened. But why? Whence the enslavement?

Because absolute power corrupts.

And this lesson has everything to do with our subject: the search for self-enlightenment.

Because, when you put people of my background on a pedestal then rest assured that like those in the White House we too become avidly autocratic, absolute power corrupts us too. And as long as you kowtow to us and our every utterance, you are complicit in your own enslavement. It may be that you are involved in a self-advancing enslavement, but it’s enslavement nevertheless.

Is there any escape? Well I can’t get you the medicines that’ll knock you out; but I can share with you the pathway to meditation. Even then, however, humanity needs to reawaken its commonsense and recognise the world and its ecology as an extension of, rather than separate from, the inner self; and inner-self rooted in freedom.

And what are the basic mechanisms of this meditation?

An oft-quoted starting point is to “look inside yourself”. What does this even mean? Apparently, it means the Mind – that fail-safe, universal, get-out-of-jail-card.

Has anyone seen Mind? Has anyone experienced Mind? If truth be known, even Mind has never met Mind. So what hope for the aspirant searching for Fool’s Gold – what proof that it is to be found in Mind or that Mind even exists.

I, as somebody who has been through the mill and come out the other end, well and truly Divinely traumatized, state: at this moment in my development, I can successfully argue that Mind is a red-herring in this world of Indian vegetarian spiritual evolution.

So, let’s leave Mind to the know-alls… those with zero-realisation of Mind!

Let me explain: you are walking; you trip; you get up. Do you berate the ground on which you tripped or do you understand that your own feet tripped you over? Mind is the ground you walk on. It is not Mind that you need to control. It is your feet, you need to pay attention to how you use them to walk.

Mind is the canvas. Your feet are your thoughts. You consider your thoughts and the rationalities they conjure up as absolute, instead of variables that can be moulded, amended, controlled.

It is your thoughts you have a relationship with; not your mind.

The short-cutters, sitting cross-legged in their cheap white meditation garb, claim that thoughts have to be watched and allowed to peter out of their own accord, and that once this happens meditation begins. Oh please!

I suggested that the mechanisms of meditation must be understood before the journey can begin.

So… let’s start:

Examine your position on rust-bucket Earth. Picture rust-bucket Earth in her relation with the Sun. Now picture the solar system in relation with its position (okay, just imagine where you think it is) to the rest of this galaxy. Now keep on expanding your imagination about this galaxy’s position and relationship with the rest of the galaxies in this cosmos. Now imagine the boundary of this cosmos and imagine what you may find there. Keep that in your thought.

Now:

Imagine where you are and look at the ground. Go deeper into the ground. Find in your imagination underground rivers or caves. Go deeper. Feel the enormous pressures as you go underneath into the darkness. Keep traveling. Now feel the heat in that abject darkness. The heat become intolerable, but it neither hurts nor burns you. Keep travelling deeper. Now reach into the very center of rust-bucket Earth. The light and heat are piercing white. Enter it. Feel it. Become part of it. Now as part of it look out into the solar system. And the first thing you will feel, if you have done this exercise correctly, is how powerful and protective rust-bucket Earth is against the harmful power of the Sun. Eventually, you will rationalise that rust-bucket Earth is a powerful Baba looking out for you.

Now let us make sense of the two exercises:

The first is the expansion mode of meditation, where you expand yourself into a never-ending examination of who you are or where you are going. This is your mega-Ego at work. This is not meditation but self delusional ego-medication leaving you feeling uplifted, like you’ve just taken your sensory and nervous systems out for a ride and dumped the nervous tension and anxiety. This depletion of the nervous tension is considered ‘meditation’.

Let those who value such an experience, let them live it. For them it is true.

In the second exercise, you have to journey internally into your Self. This Self is the You. This You is the egoless God-Particle that centres You and makes you aware of your inner You.

Truth is internal. It is within. Nothing is external. The external is the expansion of your inner awakening.

The inner You exhibits and lives itself as a ‘life’ expressing its inner awakening. For example, a particular human race has wiped other races off the face of this planet because it, the perpetrating race, exists at the farthest point away from the pure centre of itself.

I cannot emphasise this enough: each of you has to examine where are you in your own development. You cannot exceed where you are. The simple fact is that no one can self-teach/learn meditation. The above examples are not pathways, and do not lead to meditation. All they lead to is personal Ego-worship. For the truth of meditation is that it has to be ‘graced’ by one who has mastered the path. And that grace is earned by lifetimes of servile humbleness. It is not for you to decide that you are ready for that grace or for an understanding of meditation.

Surrender is the key. Personal as well as ego surrender to somebody… who may be a complete fraud. Either way, if that is what is prescribed for you as a pre-ordained experience, then you must accept its outcome without complaint or feeling of abuse. I have detailed this journey in a book – the basis of which draws on the first eight pages of greater and lesser well-known faith scriptures. It’s a must for understanding what is needed to advance into meditation (It’s not in print yet; one day, perhaps!).

But for now, let’s get back to making sense of the exercises shared above.

Inner awakening is not an individual exercise. Each human has absolute responsibility for the entire link of its genetic make-up from the past, and each one lays a foundation stone for future generations.

If you live like senseless killers, as part of a race that enjoys killing anything not identical to itself, then your future births are guaranteed to put you right back into the same killing pool. You will be born as a killer for all time; your fear-induced part of your signature. And in this game: you will kill one type of human only to be born as the one you have killed; the human who kills you becomes you, and then kills the new you, which now looks like the old them. There is no escape.

Just as it is stated, quite factually, that you are your own parent and your own child, so it is that you are your own victim and your own persecutor. The secret is respect. Respect others. Never mind that they do not respect you. Let them do what they will to do, you must remain calm and detached; that will set you free from the cycle of perpetual violence. I do need to explore this in more detail, and have in fact done so in my book “Mischievous Mystic” (again, unpublished – because it is too controversial for publishers’ tastes).

Part II: Why meditation always failsThere are several types of meditator. Each unknowingly following one among a hierarchy of meditation methods.

Each aspirant influences and affects the outcome of meditation as a result of their psychic, genetic, social, linguistic and cultural composition. Give a man a transfusion or a transplant and this too will alter the class and quality of his meditation and its outcome.

Thus, meditation is an unbelievably complex subject, encased in the trinity of contradiction, complication, and confusion that I have been instrumental in bringing into public space and knowledge.

Like the current nonsense of yoga classes – where yoga is ignorantly marketed by those seeking personal fame and public acclaim, and now consists of a set of ‘exercises’ totally unrecognizable from its actual roots and purpose – meditation too is fast becoming a virtueless activity.

Here I’m going to explain the pitfalls – it is for you to decide how to proceed.

On one hand, we have the career meditators. The ‘inner calling’ professionals, who join an enclave of like-minded thinkers and become part of any one of the world’s larger or smaller sects. An earnest, dedicated, faithful bunch, they are committed to the sect or organisation of which they have become naturalized. Feigning disdain with money and mammon, theirs is a pseudo-secular detachment that in guiding the laity towards donating 10% of their incomes while holding forth on the evil of money, manages to harvest the same and interestingly have quite substantial deposit accounts – becoming in the process reclassified as religions. Denouncing secular lifestyles, these career meditators are often found to be exhorting inner beauty, often as a panacea to their own plainness and social awkwardnesses, and because God hates aesthetically pleasing people and things, don’t you know!

In contrast with these professional meditators are the creative lay meditators – engulfed by an initial wave of intensity at their first go, and then awaiting inspiration to strike a second time. And when they do meditate, it is only until some powerful thought occurs to them and some urgent errand is remembered, or else their favourite TV program is about to start.

What the lay meditators don’t understand is that meditation is a modality of being. It is not for them to jettison meditation on a whim, or put it on a stopwatch. Or to opine the lack of celestial alignment that is keeping them from accessing their next meditative fix. Not for professionals the laxity of letting meditation rot until the stars align or for inspiration to strike. They are, within the organizational ambits of their choice, set a meditation regime and must at the very least either attempt or attune their thoughts to the one to three elected points of attention for as long as has been prescribed by organizational rules and templates.

Laypeople by contrast flit from one thought to another, one point of concentration to another. They have brought into the misnomer – which I admittedly use a lot in guiding novice lay meditators – that you should watch your thoughts come into the foreground of your attention and them let them dissipate; it’s a red herring, advanced by people of my background because we are utterly dismayed that a fundamental basic such as focusing your attention on one elected point day in, day out, is beyond people. Instead of castigating them about their failure to even grasp such a rudimentary task, that will anyway fall onto deaf ears or beget defensive justifications and an egotistical sense of wanting to get the ‘real’ meditation stuff, we have shifted the parameters of meditative technique to suit the basest of abilities.

To illustrate: it is like somebody who attends a swimming lesson, watching from the side of the pool how learners use floats to help them master basic movements of staying afloat in water; and having observed, the person presumes to have understood swimming and then jumps off a cliff into the sea expecting to swim…. Just join me in a moments silence for the idiot that just drowned.

Meditation, like a natural body of water, is dangerous.

Having read a bit here, heard a discourse there, the lay meditator presumes him/herself to be adept like the hapless would-be swimmer who drowns.

Then there are those laypeople who after a few months of earnest indulgence feel compelled to teach others what they have (ahem!) mastered. Affiliation with some formalized club ensues, rules are learned, the club’s own preferred meditation style is followed, and hey presto the lay meditator emerges as an accredited meditation practitioner and teacher.

The idiot is certified to teach Idiotology to a delusional Idiot-in-waiting.

For all my misgivings about the professional meditators, at least they understand that meditation requires regimented daily activity without which rudimentaries it cannot be understood let alone learned.

Laypeople assume self-enlightenment is around the corner – no delayed gratification for them; and for sure, their method of meditation is the best. And of course it’s logical for them to go on and form their own clubs and sects, dedicated to their own preferred method – leaving aside the inescapable hierarchy of meditation methods that exist! – forgetting if ever they were cognisant to begin with that meditation requires a strict agenda and regime of practice.

The professionals at least know that from strict discipline of the regime and regimented lifestyle they follow that one is as able to adjust an event as a grain of sand is able to influence the ebb and flow of tide. Professional meditators understand that meditation is a constant 24/7 activity, such that in order to fulfil this as well as the daily requirements of being a cog in their organisation that constitutes time spent away from meditation, they become masters in the ability to function as dutiful cogs while never forsaking their meditation.

Lay meditators never attain or achieve even the rudimentary stage that would allow them entry into the bottom rung of an organised regime where meditation is taught with such harsh and strict discipline.

Professional meditators for their part understand that enlightenment is not the reason they learn meditation. They learn meditation for the peace it gives them, without accompanying need to envelop the God’s entire creation in their own version of peace. They respect God’s creation and have zero desire or need to change that creation to fit with their vision of a better human world.

In sharp contrast, lay meditators have an inbuilt need to change what falls outside their preference and idealism. There are races that emulate precisely this ideological bent. Both European Christians and Muslims in general are trapped in a self-delusional need to want to change God’s creation.

The Muslim psyche is trapped at the kundalini chakra: a chakra that imbues them with delusional judgement; they suffer from lack of self-esteem and measure their value in terms of irrational authoritarianism and the suffering this can bring to bear on others; the more outlandish an idea the more they are convinced of its purity. They behave as if they are above the creation of the very God they claim to follow. Thus, the meditator raising their kundalini should please heed the warning that it leads one into attunement with a sort of ‘fanatical overlords’ lifestyle and attitude.

The European race is contrariwise trapped at the base root chakra – with no escape. In this environment if somebody does not fit into your Weltanschauung then it is acceptable to kill – human or animal – and to remodel the environment and the ecology to better suit one’s idea of glory.

And this brings us to the last point: meditation is not a personal; rather, it influences your entire race’s agenda, and if done incorrectly will lead to one global disaster after another.

A sobering thought on which to end! Welcome to meditation: not quite the mother of all peace; more often than not completely the opposite.

 

Seva

In this post, I seek to explain how the human world divides into distinct bio-structural groups and what this means for nishkam seva (selfless activity).

One group, mature advanced consciousness (MAC), has a fully-developed and active organ-mechanism to permit inner awakening. The other, egocentric consciousness (ECC) has a hibernating organ-mechanism which acts to inhibit attunement with advanced awareness.

Mechanically, both bio-structural groups can engage in selfless activity. However, having lived in the UK for fifty years, I can attest to the fact that in the ECC group this manifests as a passing fad – albeit committedly undertaken – that doesn’t endure over the longue duree and is not saturated with selfless-consciousness.

There is, for the ECC, instead a wariness about being pushed beyond one’s limits of selflessness – a self-preservation consciousness that draws the line in order not to be taken advantage of – and it’s there to see in the eyes and body language of European converts to Sikhism and Hinduism.

Among the MAC group, selflessness is not conditional. It is intuitive, innate, natural, humble service. Whereas the ECC regards parents as birthing pods to be discarded or farmed out when they hit old age and infirmity, deference to parents and elders is part-and-parcel of the MAC bio-signature. The selflessness that European converts undertake with all manner of caveats is, for the Sikhs and Hindus a privilege.

Nishkam seva used to be relished by the Indians of Britain. Lately, though, I’ve noticed a soiling, a weakening, a creeping impurification of this purest of activities in the minds of those doing selfless service.

MACs are becoming ECCs.Why?

Well, one reason is the proliferation of a media culture, bulwarked by right-wing devotees, and entombed in right-wing discourse that fosters and projects a form of thought graffiti that creates factional high-mindedness. Hence, supreme truth is sacrificed at the altar of cultural hierarchy, incarcerated by rigidly demarcated and authorised versions of reality that invite scepticism about the apparently unattainable and outdated dreams of our elders.

So accelerated is the contamination of nishkam seva among Sikhs that they now conduct it with fear, serving gur-langar (blessed food) – in the Gurdwara kitchens, to anybody who wishes to partake of the wholesome free food – as if those they serve have a contagious disease.

Where once valiant Sikhs stood fearless in the face of physical violence or black-magic operators, such fear is unbelievable. Where once, anybody who came to the langar hall was served with openheartedness, nowadays I witness gur-langar being served with selective openness, rather than with the abiding consciousness that all are equal in the eyes of God – and it is cowardly.

Seva has historically been linked with karamjôg (jôg in Panjabi is a higher state than Sankrit’s yôgā); karamjôg denoting an interaction wherein one’s humility and selfless service provide a mental opportunity to remain actively egoless for a certain period of time, and to thereby help lose the egotistical weight gained in one’s everyday interactions with others

This type of activity was sought after and actively enjoyed, and people had to await their chance to cleanse their own negativity. The more demeaning an activity one engaged with egoless attention during seva, the greater the burden of negativity one was able to neutralise and cancel.

Unfortunately, the Europeanised Asians, now well into their retirement, are steeped in fear of the same unknown that Sikhs used to tackle with ease and fearlessness. Lacking practical guidance from seasoned ESP-able Beings has created an argument in their minds against the rightfulness and deep sincerity of seva. How sad.

Those who are ESP-able, like myself, are hounded on a daily basis and viewed with suspicion, aided and abetted by the cowardly occupiers of positions of power within the Sikh faith – who lay claim to advanced awareness (Sant), yet cannot dig deeper than the regurgitated Gur-stories in their claim to fame.

Ask them for deeper clarity about ESP and the higher layers of consciousness and they are left floundering for answers. Having said that they are doing a sterling job in containing and guiding the masses, teaching them the rituals and rites fundamental to gaining entry into the advanced realms, and which must be mastered faithfully decade after decade before one can be inducted into deeper thought and teaching.

Until that happens, deeply sincere and humble selfless seva have to be engaged in as often as possible, week in and week out. Doing seva while also passing judgement on those about whom you hear salacious stories being passed around the community is to effectively relinquish your opportunity of inner cleansing, and the egotistical weight piles back on.

And additionally, something which is not explained widely enough, is that in judging another person you secure a connection whereby you suck their negativity of their psyche into your own psyche, which as you interact with your nearest and dearest becomes shared amongst your dearly beloved.

Any place of worship is an opportunity to cleanse one’s negativity by focusing on your own faults without sitting in judgement over whoever enters your eyesight or your wandering mind.

Non-judgement. That is the first type of seva.

The second type of seva is active participation in the operation of your chosen place of worship, without seeking the limelight or applause. Simply go and help. Let others, who are stupid enough to seek adulation and status and power, hand out orders.

The opportunity for sincere humble service is theirs too, and if they choose to ignore or discard that opportunity, so be it. For your part, just be grateful that you have an opportunity to step back from day’s hard toil and to reenergize your battery of purity and positivity.

As for the ECCs – I am determined to help the race Europeans (for that is whom the ECC references primarily) seek and find the trigger point for activating their participation in inner awakening. I know that I will fail. But I shall never give up trying or hoping that I will succeed in this endeavour.

To the MACs – well, please do not give up hope. You are on the right track. The journey is very long indeed, but it has an end. And you will be surprised what awaits you at the end… and they say God does not have a sense of humour?! Just you wait and see.

 

Sikh Mystic

Sikhs are caught in a strange paradox. A paradox without parallel in their history. They are hurtling towards a pattern of behaviour inimical to their very being; where once they lived not merely in alignment with, but expansively beyond, the samurai code which Takaharo Kitamura defines thus:

“The samurai must maintain his faith in his beliefs, even as the social or political climate shifts and alters. He must be patient, must act in a manner that may at times seem irrational or illogical, must resist the temptation of instant gratification, and must work towards fulfilling what may seem to be an impossible idea. As a result, the samurai is often sometimes an outsider, a rebellious figure because he refuses to conform to the habits of the day.”

Whence the stupendous fall from grace of the Sikh mystic? Why are Sikhs going, not into the mystic, but resolutely away from it? To answer this question, we need to explore the death of Sikh humanity – that quality of being humane and benevolent, of eschewing judgement in favour of empathy. Okay, ‘death’ may be a tad overwrought – but certainly Sikh humanity defined in this way has entered a period of ruination equally ruinous to the existence of the Sikh mystic.

Now, I have absolute empathy with that age when PhDs were conferred only once a student had accomplished mastery of, and successfully defended their theses on, no fewer than eight subjects. An age when PhDs were attained well beyond the age of 40. Today of course, entry into just one PhD programme is difficult enough, and mastering just the one subject is a life-consuming venture for four years or more. – but to master eight subjects?! I’ve nothing but admiration for that kind of feat – a norm among PhD students in a long-ago age, and one in which the Indian universities excelled, welcoming students from across the world.

What the Sikh mystic did however, was to extend the scholarly curriculum, to revolutionise the armchair-debating speciality of Aryadesh’s scholars and the subject-focused study of their research students. Sikh mysticism deepened the scope of education and expertise, integrated this to extend to body as well as mind. Thus, while an erstwhile research subject included mastery of war – Sikh mysticism required that this have a physical component, a practical counterpart to learning about strategy and tactics. It was a radical departure from a theory-only curriculum, and from the kind of mystic enquiry that limited itself to fathoming the unseen – Sikh mysticism brought to the table a pragmatic imperative; knowledge for the sake of dealing with life’s everyday problems.

If pragmatics had been valued enough, it’s possible that the morning on which the Mohammedans (the original name of followers of Islam) conquered north-west Aryadesh for the umpteenth time might never have come to pass. Indeed, one young mystic – following a householder’s lifestyle rather than that of a recluse or ivory-tower theoretician – pleaded with his senior mystics that they take a physical role in defending and repulsing the invading army. The response was along the lines of “We will sit and meditate, and materialise a sheet of mirror to confront and blind the invading army as it marches across the desert along the north-western frontier.” Meditation did not transform sand into a mirror with blinding properties. North-west Aryadesh was conquered.

And the young mystic? He is now known universally as Guru Nanakdevji. The founder and first guru of the Sikhs. (I’ll write more about what a guru is in a future post).

Guru Nanakdevji was a reformer. He jettisoned reliance on subjective and ethereal knowledge alone. He believed that the human world would be governed by those who master technology – which is where this sentence ends from the European (including American) perspective – and harness it for the benefit of people, animals and the environment. This is written into the Sri Guru Granth Sahibji, along with other of his observations, such as the imperative of strenuously tackling, confronting and improving circumstances to effect a more balanced state rather than meekly accepting karma.

The ‘knowledge-and-action’ based humanity of Guru Nanakdevji thrived through the other nine progressive Sikh Gurus. Hence, pragmatics – Guru Ramdassji (the fourth Guru) encouraged horsemanship as well as the mastering and carrying of arms, in a legal environment forbidding this – shared the limelight with scholarly pursuit.

Consequently, Sikhs were not exactly flavour of the day. Challenging ages-old traditions of Vedantic and Vedic philosophy, with their mass following and off-the-mark translations of Sanskrit scriptures (before Hinduism came to encompass everything in a hazy amorphous mass), was – and this is too often understated if explored at all –unpalatable to the mystical elite.

Yet, as with all reformist movements, the earliest adherents to Sikh mysticism comprised disaffected scholars and elites from within the ruling but increasingly defunct system – the rationality of their argument in favour of Guru Nanakdevji attracting more followers in turn. Yet, Guru Nanakdevji’s wasn’t Aryadesh’s first reformist movement by any stretch of the imagination – Bhagat Kabir and several others before him had tried and failed. What marked Guru Nanakdevji out was his born-enlightenment quality – that advanced divine awareness of his that came from birth, and gave him absolute abilities in exposing weak arguments and won him acclaim within the highest echelons of the Divine community of his age.

To put this into context, Gautaum Buddha was a self-enlightened; while Jesus of Nazareth and Mohammed of Makkah were taught-enlightened. At a pedestrian level, these strata of enlightenment are unseen, exchangeable with and inextricable from each other – what is necessary is to extrapolate the individuals involved; at an advanced spiritual level, the enlightenment forms are distinguishable but understood to more importantly comprise part of a cosmic continuum in which the bio-signatures of the individual are irrelevant categorizations.

So, we have a born-enlightened reformer espousing knowledge-action based humanity that integrates mental acuity, physical prowess, and pragmatic action – a figure in the form of Guru Nanakdevji who is a superior dialectician, unraveling the confusions of the Vedic norms and the ambiguities of the Mohammedan edicts, and joined by many an interlocutor won over by the rationality of his equal and balanced lifestyle argument.

And while this followership expanded to the masses, the source of Sikh mysticism’s initial attraction was the elites – the educated. (This social constructivist basis of group identity is well-documented within anthropological research – including the role of elites in setting the agenda, and articulating the symbols and ideology that attract the masses into believing, or in this instance cleaving to reform).

To a huge degree, however, Sikh mysticism was its own PR. It’s access to, and explanatory value and practical importance for Aryadesh’s lay population, came at the moment of its unveiling on the global stage – when Guru Gobind Raiji presented the Mystic-Warrior Sikhs formally at Vaisakhi at Anandpur Sahib and thence was baptised under their auspices as Guru Gobind Singhji.

But it also came in response to the Sikh mystics’ successes in battle – those demonstrations of power and prowess that speak volumes to a mass population excluded from the exercise of esoteric knowledge that is the elite’s domain. Mohammedan warriors sought out Sikh mystics in battle in order to die at their hands, such was the blessing and aura connoted with being a Sikh mystic.

Together, these attainments combined to attract many fame-seekers, excited by the prospect of the adrenalin of battleground victories and of becoming Sikhs – Singhs – in the process. At its apex Sikh mysticism was venerated as itself being at the apex of all dharmas and religions; and the achievements of the Sikh mystics, ordinary householders who mesmerised the population, were legendary. With the passing of the tenth Guruji, crucial adjustments leveled out the equally crucial distinctions between dharma and religion, and the criteria for becoming a Mystic-Warrior Sikh – the triadic cornerstone of mental acuity, physical prowess, and pragmatics in the service and advancement of humaneness and humanity – were relaxed to an unprecedented level.

Consequently, the baptism ceremony to become a Singh resembles a ‘conversion job-lot’ and I am unyielding in my opposition to this. For me, Singh and Kaur denote, for men and women respectively, “a Sikh mystic who is deeply and thoroughly educated but has chosen a hands-on, warrior-secular lifestyle, committed in their refusal to let truth be humiliated – even if they have to stand alone and must give up their own life in protecting truth” (Avtar).

But what I witness is angry people unable to command their own emotions being encouraged into baptism as Singhs, as if there is a contest to see who can secure the most conversions. And they take place several times a year, year in, year out – across the globe. It’s an absolute nonsense. I would even support the conversion of these manipulated innocents if they were, at the very least, entered into a stream of education that would result in their inner awakening. But they’re not and, so, I shan’t.

Think about it, the criteria for becoming a Singh are: a vegetarian diet, abstinence from alcohol, tobacco and drugs, a promise to wake up early and do two sets of prayers, one in the morning and one in the evening, not cutting their hair and wearing the five kakkars.

You may as well put out a call inviting everybody who’s ever been told by their doctor that for the sake of their health they need to eat a vegetarian diet and give up alcohol, smoking and recreational drugs; and who, on top of that, don’t get around to trimming their hair… convert to being a Singh, you tick most of the boxes already.

If only it were that easy to become a Sikh mystic!

Vegetarianism has always been a mainstay of the Indian diet; keeping hair untrimmed has always been the choice of those seeking inner awareness…these are hardly edicts of an advanced dharma, then, but merely extrapolations of long-held local practices, and not a whole lot to crow about, after all.

Sikh mysticism is a tad more complicated, and yes, I would revert to some strictness about who may take the next step in their inner development with respect to initiating them into Sikh mysticism. Remember the prescriptions of mental acuity (to the level of scholarship), physical prowess, and pragmatic resolution of life’s everyday problems? Entwined with the qualities of humanity – truth, protection, empathy?

In all of this, there is no place for arrogance; and I would strip that out of any wannabe Singh by asking them to précis their knowledge of current scientific and philosophical research; prepare and formally defend doctoral theses on four subjects of their choice; demonstrate recall of all the world scriptures, and be able to extrapolate the theological differences between them. Fail in any, and you fail totally. Please pass “Go”, you don’t have what it takes. You cannot become the Khalsa.

What you actually see happening, however, is open baptism season, accompanied by a lot of venom and anger and utilization of media platforms to see who can shout loudest. Of the oft-quoted Kahlil Gibran phrase “Rest in reason; move with passion”, only the second half seems to resonate and even then without qualification or balance or temperance. And the newly baptised then fragment into social cult groupings, their fealty occurring at the cost almost of Sikh unity.

One inspirational Sikh took a more outlandish path to inner awakening and gained mystical status as a result, only for this acolytes to follow the method without achieving what he had; it was a case of ignoring the interplay between an individual’s bio-signature and the method of self-awareness suited thereto, and thinking that fervently rocking and atonally and loudly repeating a mantra would allow you to reach the heady heights of enlightenment though your bio-signature requires a different method altogether. Ask the acolytes, however, and they will, to a man, deny that they haven’t advanced spiritually.

The mesmerised are never taught the simplest truth of all: which is that you must find what works for you. I can’t emphasise this enough – focus on your aim not on the individual who appears to have reached it.

Few can become mystics. Weakening the pool through mass, emotionally-charged conversion doesn’t help anyone. While there is nothing to fault in the initial fervour of the newly converted, eventually the veneer peels off and they come to see the ultimate aim/objective with the naked and dispassionate eye, and in all its unattainable reality.

For example, almost everybody misses the point of being a warrior: it is to find every conceivable way to get out of a fight. A Mystic-Warrior must first try to create an environment which allows both sides to save face. Only when all attempts at this are rejected does the Mystic-Warrior move into the phase of shielding the weak, protecting the vulnerable, and disarming the aggressor. If the latter raises arms and takes aim, then it is permissible to put them to peaceful rest. A Mystic-Warrior does not sit in judgement, but accepts human frailty and ignores ambition.

Yet, to see the veins practically popping out on the foreheads of the baptised Sikhs, who huddle together on the Sikh television channels here in the West, creating a frenzy of argument and anger, clenching their fists in demand of their wants, substituting freedom of speech for the freedom of thought that is already theirs by right… well, Mystic-Warrior Sikh is not the first description that comes to mind; nor is Sikh, let alone Singh.

There is genuineness in their desire to see justice fulfilled as they regard it, but while admirable, they remain demeaning examples – all too widely emulated – of that which fully and truthfully is the Sikh Mystic-Warrior. As Rumi writes: “It is not thunder that grows flowers, but water.” 

It is nigh on impossible to be a Sikh Mystic – but for all that, it is neither unattainable nor unlivable as a lifestyle.
