Brotherhood Of The Sacred Word
Religious activities that bring bliss, prosperity, and siddhi --
purpose of religion.

"Shiva is the god who is easily pleased."
At any given time, choose the ones that attracts you at that time,
the ones you feel you can understand and relate to.
Except for Duty (#1) which you should do always.
Doing your natural duty to your parents, family, brothers and sisters,
and natural community, boss, etc. brings grace and eventually brings bliss
and also builds up the karma that opens the gates of bliss.
When you do your duty for God despite obstacles or dangers,
this brings great bliss. The more you believe in its moral rightness and its value,
the more it builds the road to bliss and even brings bliss immediately itself.
Our own inner conscience and Self rewards us in heaven worlds, and in this world
and future incarnations, because of what it knows we have have done for right and good,
and what we have sacrificed.
Do the mula bhanda
This is where you tighten up all below. It is directing your creative energy finally up instead of down. The mula bhanda can be done with other techniques including pranayama techniques, but it is best to get those from a kriyaban of my lineage. (One already initiated and getting fruit.)
The mula bhanda should be done whenever you happen to think of it: While standing in a line, while driving, while sitting and reading, when laying down for sleep, etc. A short time is better than no time. Develop it for longer times. The more you do the mula bhanda the more you improve your karma, develoep chastity, and also reduce sleep losses. It is squeezing out the rag.
Mentally sharing pleasures with guru, or with God
When especially delighted by something, you should think of the guru,
or if you are able, of Isvara the knowable Lord
(Who is without Taint and ever beyond sorrows and of the
nature of sorrow-destroying pure Light and greets us at death.)
You should not enjoy it alone, but offer it up with gratitude and imagine you are
sharing the experience with them.
When children find a delightful thing out in the wood they strongly desire to bring it
in to their mother and share the wonder or pleasure of it with her.
This is a worship-practice, and increases the connection to guru and God.
This is especially effective when feeling bliss or great pleasure over music.
The music has been a special transport and guru-connection vehicle for me.
The more beautiful and transporting the music, the more share it with God within.
I remember being young and really impressed and moved by some music, and bringing it to my mother to play it for her because I thought she would be moved by it too. But this is even more of the nature of "sacrificing" or "giving back" the pleasure to God, or offering, as thanks, some of our own better karma to him.
One can also "present" the music to the guru as one is listening to it.
Use your imagination!
-- Imagine it as ringing through the skies in a sacred and high Himalayan valley as the sun is going down
as Babaji, your guru lineage and other yogis are out on their cliff cave porches!
-- Or imagine it as a triumphal march that is celebrating God or guru through the streets
with your intrepid brotherhood.
-- Imagine it playing in the great hall leading up to the throne room as acolytes
walk down the halls towards their guru-King chanting with incense, etc.
-- Imagine it as the tribal music going on at a wild camp made by your
traveling wild band of dharmic people under the leadership of your
sat-guru and chieftain, as night fires burn, your people dance in celebration, beat drums,
and children stare in wonder.
As the music, art, or other stimulation fires your imagination, let that also serve to help you imagine your ways of "giving" it to the guru. Whatever your imagination can conjure for "presenting" it to the Lord, is good.
The lord reacts the same way the mother does to the child bringing her a flower:
She becomes more aware of the child and fond.
This should be done with food: Before, during the eating, and after.
If smelling a delightful smell, share it with the lord.
If seeing a delightful place, an natural scene in nature, or a beautiful architectural creation,
share it in mind with the Lord. Say "Look, father! Isn't this grand?!" and the like.
Remember he is always seeing through your eyes, but he has not had you
to consciously share with Him and thank Him.
If seeing a beautiful woman, share her in mind with the Lord, thanking Him.
It should be done by all the White European couples with sex:
Before, during, and after. (Thank the Lord for that pleasure and know
that bliss and the power of procreation derives from Him.)
Even if you have a sexual debacle or sin, offer that pleasure to the Lord
belatedly, penitently in mind, and asking him to retrieve it for Himself and for all good.
Even after falling into temptation, sin, lust, and loss --
even after -- apologetically offer up the memory of that pleasure to God.
If unmarried, offer it up to God as the "One Alpha Male" and that woman as His real wife, etc.
and ask him to make all those losses returned, stabilized, and made right.
This mitigates externally-witnessed damages of the world-projection due to male sin
(use of sex unholistically for pleasure only, absent wedded wife).
Share all pleasures and delights with the guru or the inner Lord.
This increases the bliss already there in these instances.
There is another sadhana that you can do later of converting all experiences into bliss,
even unsought painful ones. But the above is very easy to do for all.
Try not to have more than one male period a month.
Ask God for help with this.
This reduces disturbances and distracting damages to the exterior world
which is projected from your body, ceases offending the Creator,
and attracts grace, and makes you inwardly strong (having ojas)
and capable of both interacting with and withstanding God within.
It also gives you a penetrating mind capable of concentration
as well as strong thoughts and visualizations.
It gives you a powerful mind, creative thought, and powerful words.
Religion doesn't really begin until a man begins to attempt continence.
Further, to simply have a decent, undisturbed life in ordinary worldly terms requires a high level of continence.
-- Renounce all porn and erotica.
-- Reduce caffeine or renounce it completely.
-- When feeling sex desire, "fly the kite" -- visualize it going up instead of down,
up the spine, like a kite on a string as an offering to the gurus in the upper meads.
-- Develop meditation bliss. (See below.)
-- Set particular continence goals, remaining chaste this long, that long, then longer.
-- Don't seek out the company of attractive women. (They show up periodically on their own with your astrological transits.)
-- Engage in work and creative pursuits.
Going to God within about your painful situations or your lack.
Here, suffering becomes a lucky thing. That suffering can even be "I lack knowledge,
I don't know the right way or what's true."
Talk out loud to God about it. Make requests. Ask for help.
Make deals. Carry out promises. Call out.
Ask Saguna Brahman, the Lord, by whatever name you prefer how to be free of limitations, karma, and suffering
and manifest miraculous resolutions and corrections.
This is simple and available to all, and it is an entry portal to
devotion and guru-bhakti, to inwardness, and to concentration of mind.
Even the greatest saints, yogis, and avatars keep doing it right to the very
end, and even during the death process: Call out to God within!
Children should be given faith in the Higher Being, and his
Representative, and taught to address God both silently and
out-loud, from an early age.
Reading about Jesus, saints, gurus, great yogis, and virtuous men.
If this starts with childhood, such as hearing of the miracles of Christ,
you are very lucky. These stories expand the consciousness
and connect the mind with the Infinite Akasa, which is a fundamental aspect of God.
A very good modern book on this subject of "Miracle of Love" about the siddha
Neem Karoli Baba. It is stories of all the siddhis experienced by his devotees.
Reading great religious scriptures
Autobiography Of A Yogi
A good starting Upanishad is the Katha Up.
The Gospel of Ramakrishna
The Bible, especially the actual words of Christ
The Hidden Words of Baha'u'llah,
Works by yogic saints:
The talks and writings of Paramahansa Yogananda,
and Swami Muktananda
As many translations and commentaries as you can find;
don't settle with just one. They are not all alike. Good ones include translations
by Annie Besant, Nikhilananda, Shivananda, and many others.
The Gita is one of the Upanishads, but one featuring very condensed
teachings such that every verse, almost, references a distinct metaphysical concept.
The verses are very dense and it takes a long time to penetrate their meaning.
The other Upanishads are developed in a more spread-out fashion and are
easier to grasp starting in, than the Bhagavad-Gita.
The Guru Gita
Shows the guru-bhakti attitude
Immediately give you peace, calm, and increases your dispassion.
Teaches you the attitude of Non-Dualistic Vedanta so you understand it.
Generally, read what gives you
inspiration and a re-affirmation of vital truths such as the value of meditation
The talks of Ramana Maharshi are very valuable if read with
a cultured eye. (The principles of guru-devotion and chastity, strongly
present in his life and background, are submerged.) It gives a great
understanding of the centrality of the mind in the world manifestation,
and some good metaphysical insight.
The works of Christian saints, as you are able to
discover them, especially the great Christian "bhakta" saints
(those whose religious practice was founded in a deeply felt
devotional attitude to Christ.) They achieved one-pointed concentration,
samadhi, and mergence with God via this bhakti and
concentrative techniques, whether formal or spontaneous.
Reading scriptures increases and reaffirms shraddha. (Faith)
For many men the pursuit of knowledge, and the feeling they
are receiving it, brings bliss, so reading scriptures
(as well as many other materials) immediately brings bliss!
Reading scriptures over time becomes a form of meditation and brings great bliss and insight,
and my gurus meditation technique usually continues to abide and takes hold during
the reading of scriptures.
to being alone with God, in worship, in spiritual reading, meditation, and austerities.
Should be done by all. It is the beginning of your spiritual path, and the footpath of the saints,
to set that one day a week aside for God alone. Much progress can then be made.
Sunday is the day of most intense spiritual effort. Just as an athlete doesn't try to
run his fastest or make his most strenuous efforts every day, but reserves that for
the meets and games -- Sunday is the day you should strive toward your highest
spirituality. Enemies of Gentile religion have mocked the fact that your Sunday is more holy
than the other days. However, that is the point: To make your very best spiritual effort that
day, and to devote that day to God, especially God-worship and the search
for God within one's own consciousness, back of the mind, through meditation,
religious singing, prayer, chanting, and other intense spiritual practices.
Sages say: "Regularity is one thing; intensity is another."
It's during times of greatest intensity that people have breakthroughs. So on Sunday
you will make more and more spiritual breakthroughs within yourself toward divine bliss,
and these will stay with you more and more on other days.
Gentiles should convert to Saturdays as family and social days,
Sundays as no work spiritual contemplation days, with gatherings
(church) for community worship (except for hermits), then Monday as an "after Sunday" day.
The Monday, or "after Sunday" day, should be completely unstructured, allowing the spiritual
efforts of the day before to really take hold and remain. It can be a day, also, of gradually
easing back into work and the world, if desired, throughout the day
but with no obligation or hurry. This is the day of pure freedom and enjoyment
of the spiritual life within at its deepest. Solitude should be the keynote.
The most religious business owners should stay closed or open late.
Work can then resume in earnest on Tuesday.
This allows for a fuller digestion of the spiritual effort of Sunday, and for
those more social (involved with churches and spiritual groups), it can be more of a true solitude day.
In Vedic terms the traditional Gentile Sunday has been like a Kyastriya day,
matching the Kyastriya phase of later life. In the kyastria (warrior) phase,
one becomes somewhat detached from the ordinary world, begins to do
austerities and spiritual practices, and attends to the well-being and spiritual
guidance of society.
The after-Sunday day (Monday) that is completely unstructured, corresponds
to the Saddhu/Sannyas phase or last phase of life, where there is complete
aloneness and contemplation for truly make way for the relationship with God,
and be ready for the passing in a detached state. In Vedic tradition, this was
when the elderly devoted completely to God-communion and left conventional
society for the forests or wilderness. The Monday, or after-Sunday day, has this
same purpose and feeling.
Sunday is the cracking of the coconut, the cracking of the shell of worldliness, and that work,
with some bliss and joy in both meditation and the spiritual life of the community.
Monday is the deeper enjoyment of its fruits and juices -- the life of real divine contemplation and detachment.
Shops should be closed on Sundays, but not necessarily Mondays.
Work should be dropped for as much as is practicable.
Gatherings should be around a spiritual or worship purpose,
and not purely for social or family purposes. Shops should be generally closed.
Music should be of a satvic, God-turned nature.
-- Dress in your most beautiful and clean clothes.
-- Listen only to religious music, and to guru talks if inclined.
-- Do not go shopping or do any business. Do not go to or near places of business.
-- Burn incense or nice smells.
-- Light candles or other puja-like sacrifices.
-- Go to church in the morning, and be home the rest of the day in a quiet and sacred state.
-- If you do not go to church, walk to at least once church and walk around it,
thing of God and guru, such as Jesus Christ, founder of Christianity,
and pray to Him to save your people, or bless you and help you.
It is good to devote Sundays to silence, or the day-after-Sunday.
It is also to have special retreats of 2-3 days in which you practice silence.
This helps the ego and its chatter calm down, and makes one more perceptive to
the inner spiritual perceptions, which are Most Joyful and Most Powerful while
at the same time being Most Subtle.
Fasting is powerful, cuts away inner impurities rapidly, including the karmic inheritance of
subtle impurities, pleases God, opens up spiritual perceptions, makes you less dependent on
food afterward. (And more and more with each succeeding fast.) It opens up your ability to
absorb fundamental life energy (prana) directly. It improves health, makes prayers effective,
and brings visions and knowledge. If you have not done a fast before, you should start
by fasting just one Sunday a month, not eating the whole day. That is, you should wake up,
have only water that day, and go to bed that way. Break the fast the next day with a breakfast.
This will give you 24 hours + of fasting. If this is too hard, break it in the evening of Sunday
until you get through the full day and into sleep. After a few of these, try some 2-day fasts.
Then get to 3-days. The 3-day period is where the real "fasting zone" begins and the body's
ancient fasting mechanisms are awakened. After doing at least three 3-day fasts, with
good breaks in between of normal eating, start doing fasts of increased lengths.
A week-long fast on only water should then become a pleasant attainment, and you
will regret breaking these fasts because of the spiritual states attained.
However, after the fast, your karmic load has been lightened, your absorption of
pranic energy is permanently increased, your health should be better, and your life will become
less disturbed and the spiritual perceptions nearer.
Religious and devotional chanting
Powerfully effective, powerfully purifying. Have the attitude of bhakti first.
This method is so powerful and immediately effective that it would be best if
you received your chanting technique from a Godly source and not from random books.
However, if you have some bhakti, and some spiritual austerities behind you, and
if you are careful about your sources and begin slowly, you could begin to have
the safe and luminous benefits of out loud chanting through your own investigations.
The occult and spiritual power of out-loud chanting, which is a powerful form
of meditation, is often overlooked and not understood. Really serious God-seekers
with bhakti can begin to experiment with this on their own. Highest and fastest
results will come from getting your mantra or chanting technique from another
devotee who has a divine connection in his own chanting.
This is the richest and profoundest realm of sadhanas and spiritual techniques.
When a man becomes a true God-seeker, he becomes interested in meditation.
God is found behind the curtains of the constantly moving mind. He begins to be first
experienced as bliss/ananda, which gradually suffuses the mind and body.
Meditation is like the bread-and-butter austerity of spiritual aspirants.
It is like the Master Austerity, because in meditation one renounces
his very mind, which is the seat of all worldly pleasures and experiences.
Thus worldly attachment and engagement with worldly karma are chopped
right at the root, via meditation.
There are many meditation techniques. Meditation is made more fruitful,
for reasons not generally not understood, if the technique is received via
1) asking, 2) of a yogi who has himself attained spiritual fruit with that
meditation technique. However, spiritual progress can be made also using
techniques studied in books and lessons. The Vijnana-Bhairava is an
ancient Indian scripture listing a large number of meditation techniques.
It begins with some detail on a profound meditation technique that combines a
mantra with the breath, and this is one of the main techniques used by
Paramahansa Yogananda, Swami Nityananda, Muktananda, and
other siddhas. To approach meditation in the wisest way, one should
first cultivate a positive regard for a saint, guru, or advanced yogi.
Then one should approach that person, whether they are living or not,
for information about technique.
Christians can find information about meditation techniques in the
writings of their saints. They should cultivate first a positive and emotional
regard for both Christ and that saint, then study the technique described by that
saint, or which may also be given within their monastic orders by
advancing Christian monks and nuns.
It is best to have one main technique, then use supplementary techniques
to freshen your interest in sadhana. Then all of the techniques will start to
manifest their own special fruit. Eventually one arrives at a meditation technique
that is his most effective and most alive.
Meditation is a vast subject. One thing to realize is that a
technique can seem very simple and unassuming and yet it can be loaded
with profound secrets and mysteries. As you practice the technique with faith
and devotion, it starts to reveal its secrets. Thus one of the commentators wrote
in The Yoga-Sutra, "Then the yoga goeth forth by yoga alone."
In other words, the technique itself starts to teach you about itself, shows you more depths,
and you are also led to new meditation techniques that are uniquely you own, or which you can
teach to some others should the occasion arise. This is, in fact, the way that most of the known
meditation techniques were originally discovered and described. They were discovered
by God-seeking men and women, and handed down.
Guru Bhakti I
Think of the guru you trust in the moment, are fond of in the moment,
or feel you can relate to in the moment.
The satguru is the same, of whatever name.
Is is imperishable, boon-giving to the sincere and those purifying themselves and seeking him,
knows your real self, is compassionate, has shakti, destroys karma,
and brings you to bliss.
This is the single-most important sadhana and spiritual technique.
All can be attained by this alone, including all techniques and gifts.
Think of the guru a lot, read about his life or his thoughts,
until you feel a real connection, and that you know his thoughts.
Do devotional exercises that may come to mind naturally,
such as sacrificing some incense, doing a pranam.
(I often pranam to my guru when I pass his picture,
or imagine scenes from his past, inserting myself into the scene.)
-- Meditating on the guru/Christ
-- Chanting/singing to the guru
-- Visualizing yourself with the guru
-- Visualizing yourself serving the guru
-- Holding a posture for the guru
-- Transmitting all pleasures and charming moments to the guru;
sharing these with the guru
(For Christians, the "guru" can easily be Christ)
-- Thinking of God's nature
For the second, read certain Upanishads that describe both Nirguna and Saguna Brahman.
Holding a Posture
Most of these occult purposes for yogic postures are not understood in the
western "yoga" culture. In genuine yoga, posture has value but
in the west it is both over-emphasized while at the same time its real purpose
is not understood.
One of the main purposes for holding yogic postures is that they
function as a difficult, even painful, austerity. By engaging in the painfulness of
holding a posture, this increasingly breaks ties to the body and
the attachment to bodily comfort, giving the mind freedom.
Steady posture also makes the instability
of the mind more clear and apparent, giving a better table-platform for
working on concentration of mind. So steady posture aids development
of concentration-meditation. Also, the pain and discomfort felt when holding
steady and even difficult posture, when ignored, gives great vairagya/detachment
from the body and finally freedom from impact by any bodily discomfort.
However, holding yogic postures is not of critical importance in yogic austerities beyond
the straightness of the spine in meditation, and can be viewed as a supplementary austerity.
The Yoga-Sutra is the most comprehensive book on yoga and it only mentions
body posture once: Advising that the spine be erect and naturally settled when
meditating. The rest of the sutras deal with the states and processes of the mind,
because yoga is really about mastery of, and thinning of, the mind and its action.
Administrations to the body are supplementary and have for their purpose to aid
the real yoga, which is and address to the mind. For our brotherhood, sitting
in a chair, or with crossed legs, and the spine held erect and settled, is
completely sufficient as far as yoga is concerned. When the real yoga
is done, kundalini becomes activated and the body goes into many beautiful
spontaneous yogic postures called kriyas, and this is how knowledge about
yogic postures actually first arose. Our Brotherhood is a rare fount of
genuine yoga in the west today.
STANDING GUARD FOR THE GURU
One of our special Brotherhood sadhanas involving postures is mentioned above,
"holding a posture for the guru." The spiritual impact of posture is
extraordinarily increased through this simple device of "holding the posture
for the guru." One can imagine he is sitting or standing WITH the guru in his
own meditation retreat or ashram, and hold the posture for him alone.
In like manner, our brotherhood employs very simple postures such as
"standing guard" with the same ideas in mind, and these have a much greater
spiritual impact that simply doing yoga-studio postures without the right
inner posture, purpose, and bhakti attitude. The exotic postures often seen
in western yoga studios today (W.A.B.Y. studios), are only spiritually efficacious
if employed with the right inner attitude, and they arose originally with the dawning
of kundalini and spontaneous kriyas. So there is no need for our Brotherhood to
give them importance beyond a few simple ones, employed with the right
efficacious inner attitude of purpose and bhakti.
My development into this started when I saw a United States Marine
standing perfectly motionless and pristine, in perfect discipline,
at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, in full dress, in the very hot sun
in Washington D.C.
It developed further when I realized that my guru had a meditation retreat
in the desert in California, and realized there were no male disciples
around him who would have been willing to do this, or would have
thought of it, though knowing (instinctively) that my kingly guru
would have liked that.
Standing at attention and guarding the guru is a very good sadhana!
I have done it many times. It increases bhakti. You can do it anywhere.
Set a chair or tucket in a nice corner and imagine he is there meditating.
The creative imagination is the root of the whole world and the universe.
It is the root of vital, effective, and living spiritual techniques.
It is better if you get pranayama techniques from a kriyaban of my lineage rather than messing around with pranayama techniques you read in books or on the internet.
Guru Bhakti II
1 -- Doing things for the guru
2 -- Meditating FOR the guru, on his behalf
3 -- Breathing with the guru
4 -- Breathing with God
The first is self-explanatory.
The value and significance of guru-bhakti cannot be overstated.
Thus it is brought up a second time here. The techniques or inner activities
mentioned above are more advanced, so they have been separated from the first list.
Only "Meditating for the Guru" will be brought out on this page.
Meditating For the Guru
Similar to standing guard. Imagine that you are in the room with him.
For example, perhaps you have snuck into the parlor in Benares where
many saddhus visited Lahiri Mahasaya only at night, crowding into that room,
and he upon a tucket in samadhi. Or, maybe you are standing guard for
Yogananda in his "throne room" in 29 Palms in the California Desert.
Imagine that you are "meditating for him," because perhaps he is not in
this world anymore, or is distracted for a moment
or has to do prayer errands or devotees are disturbing him.
"Hold down the meditation fort" for him as it were.
Imagine that you are like a good son who sees his father working in
the workroom and you go there also with hammer and work bib to help him.
"Look dad, I am pounding nails too." Like that. "Look dad, I will sand that for you."
"I will do that for you." Meditate for the guru, doing your best at meditation on his behalf.
Claiming Your Church
The religious traditions and religious culture of the Gentiles, our White European peoples,
are vast, profound, full of wisdom and mystical knowledge, supported and uncovered
by miraculous saints, and filled with noble aspirations. Much of the good of the White
European peoples -- including their humanitarian and selfless instincts toward all
peoples of the world -- has been cultivated by their Christian religion. The spiritual knowledge
found on this page, itself, is a fruit of my having been brought up in the Catholic Church.
Gentiles should claim a church -- or several churches! -- and draw from them the best they
presently have to offer, while offering their own energies to strengthen and revivify
that church, even if by your simple presence at services, and joining in with hymns! The church was once the cohesion of a community. Our peoples were bonded together along the lines of the highest ideals and aspirations, and had deep community bonds because of shared religious ideals. The family is the first glue of
community and the most profound. But the Church is the glue of larger community;
community that creates greater culture, civic life, and community security.
The Gentile churches have been under mordant attack in the western lands now for
several centuries by an alien presence inside of Gentile communities. The attack
primarily consists in attacking and discrediting the churches, along with offering
heavy inducements toward the world of carnality, and faith in dualistic material science, which gives no grace and no salvation.
The Christian churches contain the mystical secrets of God-communion.
They contain the secrets of yoga (God-communion) found in scriptures like
the Yoga-Sutra and the Bhagavad-Gita. Jesus Christ and His saints have great
potency to open the mind to the pure divinity within and save the mind and body
from worldly karma, entanglement, and conditioning.
Gentiles will survive and prosper again, plus re-open the pathways to the divine
life of prosperity and God-bliss. The Gentiles need to return to their churches,
find the good in them, excise the useless worldliness in them, and if necessary,
rectify them from within through their own spiritual austerities and wisdom.
Churches with the most virile, honest, and brave ministers/priests should
receive the most support. If your church is lacking one of these,
take over in his place. Infuse the church with the knowledge of its own guru principle, its own brahamacharya, its own bhakti-yoga heritage, and its own meditation techniques.
Building the Brotherhood
Be in communication with at least two other brothers per week, encouraging their chastity. their renunciation, and their meditation.
Listing to God as Aum
Once this is found, no other techniques are needed.
Aum will be heard through 1) Continence, 2) meditation using a few particular techniques,
and 3) guru bhakti.
Viewing all you see as an emanation of yourself; as belonging to you.
This is particularly good to do this practice on Sundays. It takes you out of the characteristic
reaction mode as an ego, helps you get ready for the after-death states, and makes Sunday
more harmonious and calm. The rest of the week, we have our duties, must engage
with the various forces and players in our world-stage. But in this practice, you try
to stay with the realization -- and it's a truth -- that all you experience externally,
including people and the way they behave, and world and cultural conditions,
are all your own self-created projections. This changes the way you react
to them. When encountering something or someone negative, unpleasant,
ignorant, or hostile, contemplate him as a projection of your own self
and karma and try to breath/transmit virtue and higher possibilities
into your projection. (The person or situation.)
This can be done young or old, at any time, and is always enjoyed by
the God-lover seeking greater detachment and God-reliance.
It should be done young, in the early stages of spiritual questing,
and also old, in the last stages.
Spiritual and community service
-- Morally regenerating them; teaching sexual morality and self-control
-- Showing them the way to inner bliss; teaching the sadhanas
-- Resisting and exposing "one world" and other government controllers/manipulators, communism, etc.
-- Creating brotherhood households
-- Matching marrying men to the right wives, creating social and courtship structures
-- Helping whole families form and prosper
-- Preserving the races, ethnes, and cultures, especially your own
-- Teaching simplicity of living and self-sufficiency
-- Regenerating Sunday communal God-time (Church)
-- Reducing car-hells; redesigned town for civilized life
-- Development and protection of music and other arts, in our racial traditions
Prayer For The People,
Destruction of Evil Influences Through Prayer
The Vijnana-Bhairava gives a meditation in which you visualize all evil
and ignorance in the world destroyed by fire.
You can also imagine the fire of pranayama -- the cool heat --
and the fire of your tapas, fasting, etc. burning away that evil which is really
in your own body and projected outward.
For Marrying Men, When Time:
Devotion to Wife and Family and
Raising Good Children,
and Working Hard, and Contributing
to your church or brotherhood
This is like number one, but needs to be singled out. God blesses the loving father
who provides for his family and gives his children a full mother.
This is high duty, and it builds the stone roads to bliss and opens the gates of bliss later.
Leaving your wife and children for spiritual pursuit, like Sankara advised, is wrong, stupid,
and unnecessary. You may need to do moderate "leavings," such as retreats,
Sundays alone, and your meditation time. But if you have a wife that
supports your spiritual search, you will be able to start fire to your spiritual flame
without abandoning wife or children.
Men who have wife and children better understand the human condition
and develop a genuinely fatherly attitude toward all mankind later.
In our Brotherhood there are both marrying men and non-marrying men.
But all men are strongly encouraged to uphold their duties to existing wives and children.
Your sexual duty to a good wife is once per month, only.
I have done all these sadhanas.
