Whatever you see, hear, touch, smell, taste, think, imagine, perceive or do, is Prana, the Life-Energy or Power of God.

Everything is power of God. 

All the created beings and things of the Creation, however insignificant they might seem to be, are the expressions and manifestations of Prana, The Divine Primordial Energy, or the Basic Life-Force. In the Sanskrit language, this is also known as Shakti or the Divine Mother. The followers of Yoga call it Prana. The scientists call it Energy. In the Hindu Holy Scriptures, it is known as Brahman (not Brahma). In the Mundaka Upanishad, it is mentioned that:

“It is Prana only which shines and activates all creatures, beings, and objects”

MUNDAKA UPANISHAD

To remember it, to feel it and to have faith in it, is the greatest spiritual practice.

Realizing this, the wise and spiritual people become calm and quiet. They don’t quarrel about The Spirit. They are constantly aware of their oneness with the Soul or the Inner Self. They are in constant joy. Such followers of the Kriya Yoga are considered as the greatest spiritual persons. They are well established in the Self or God – Consciousness. Whatever they think, they are in awareness of the Soul. In whatever they do, they are in the loving awareness of the Soul; and in whatever, speak, they are aware of the Soul. Such people can only feel that,

“I am the Soul, Formless, Pervading everywhere, beyond Time and Space.”

No longer do they fall victim to anger, hostility, depression, or anxiety. They always feel the Oneness of the Whole Creation. They are in harmony with every person and every creature. They are busy yet calm, calm, and yet busy. They really enjoy every moment of life and living. They follow and practice the teachings of the Holy Bhagavad Gita. By doing a daily and, practice of our original, classical Kriya Yoga, any person of any religious or even of non-religious background, can achieve the state of Universal Oneness and Love in this very life.

The Inner Truth – The Pranashakti

The Truth is that everything visible and invisible in the Creation is Prana, the Life Energy or Shakti or the Living Power of God or Brahman. God is Param Brahman. Whatever you see, hear, touch, smell, taste, think, imagine, perceive, or do, is Prana, the Life-Energy or Power of God. Human beings, animals, birds, serpents, insects, fungi, bacteria, virus, plants, earth, water, fire, air, vacuum, space, etc., is an expression of this Prana, Power of God. In Yoga philosophy and in the entirety of Hinduism, this is the essence of the Inner Truth. This one Truth is taught through the different religious denominations of modern-day Hinduism or The Sanatana Dharma or the work culture of the Vedas.

The same Truth is, in the Holy Bhagavad Gita, in the Devi Purana or Durga Saptasati Chandi on the Glory of God as the Divine Mother. If you can sit calmly and silently for a few minutes, and think and meditate, you also can realize that the whole creation is the play of Energy, Shakti, Prana or Power of God. Mind, intellect, ego, limbs, body, body-parts and their activities, as also the Soul, is Prana. Prana is the Creator, Sustainer, and Destroyer of everything, visible and invisible. It is the Prana which holds everything together.

All aspects of Human Beings and all creatures, like joy and sorrow, peace and chaos, devotion and deviation, sin and virtue, matter and anti-matter, knowledge and ignorance, light and darkness, are the expressions or projections of that Prana, Shakti or Brahman. If one can harness this Prana, subdue its restlessness and can control the mind; one has achieved the ultimate goal of the human incarnation is Self-Realization or God-Realization. Try to remember that the Creator and the Creation are one. Feel it and perceive the Viswarupa or the Cosmic Form of God. Be blessed. Always rise above the dualities of nature. Don’t get influenced by favorable and unfavorable or pleasure and pain like and dislikes or excitement and depression. Don’t get affected by circumstances. You are The Soul, Brahma, Who is the Source of Nature.

May God and Gurus, Bless, Guide, Protect and Inspire you and your loved ones and remove your troubles.
