Abridged excerpts from Gurujī’s spontaneous seminars –
हंसपार्श्वत्रिकोणे च स्मरेत्तन्मध्यगं गुरुम्॥५८॥
Haṁsapārśvatrikoṇe ca smarettanmadhyagaṁ gurum||58||
– Stanza 58 of Gurugītā – Short version
Translation: In the circular region of the lotus having a thousand petals, there is a lotus –abja– consisting of three lines (rekha or rekhā) which begin with the letters “a”, “kha” and “tha”, respectively. And this triangle –trikoṇa– contains “Haṁ” and “Sa” on both sides. One should remember the Guru who is in the center of that triangle.
There are many many mysteries in Gurugītā, like I told you before. This verse in Gurugītā about “The Guru is in the center of the circle with 1000 petals and surrounded by Akathādi”… by Akathāditrirekhābje (by triangle with all the Sanskrit letters around; 16 vowels, 16 consonants and 16 consonants). So, humans reading that –common humans– understand that: “Okay, there is a circle here –in Sahasrāra–, and there is a triangle, and the Guru is in the middle. So you have to meditate here because the Guru is here”. But this is common knowledge. I told you before.
But… there is space! Because when you are meditating on this (on Sahasrāra), you have to meditate here (in Sahasrāra). But you are here (on the level of the eyes) and you meditate here (in Sahasrāra). So there is space! There is some space. So, you are limited! Because God has no space! So you are meditating on God but with space. So it’s not right. If you meditate like this, you have to be here (in Sahasrāra), to meditate correctly. It’s the same with every cakra. When you meditate in a cakra, you have to be in the cakra. You cannot meditate for example, in Anāhata, and you are here (in Ājñā). Because there is distance! So you are limiting the experience of the Anāhata cakra. You have to be in the Anāhata cakra to really activate the cakra. It’s the same with every cakra. This is the way God thinks, not the way human thinks.
You are the Guru. You are in the middle of this universe –this triangle–. So, meditate on the Guru. Meditate that you are the center of all.
And in the case of this Gurugītā – “Guru is in the center of the triangle”. Yes, in this case, here (in Sahasrāra). But there is a more expansive meaning of this stanza. It’s that you are the Guru! and this universe is a triangle around you. And you have 16 vowels, 16 consonants and 16 consonants. It’s not that you are surrounded by letters dancing around you. This is human understanding again, No. It’s the sounds. All these sounds created all these beings and all these objects. For example, the 16 vowels created all the higher beings in this manifestation – Sadāśiva, Anantabhaṭṭāraka… all these great beings, all these Rudra-s, these liberated beings. So, when you connect with this side of the universe associated with vowels… All these Sanskrit vowels (a ā i ī u ū…) created all these beings. So when you connect with these vowels, you connect with these beings. They are the creation of these sounds. And when you connect with other sounds –consonants, lower consonants–, you are associated with lower beings. And you are the Guru. You are in the middle of this universe –this triangle–. So, meditate on the Guru. Meditate that you are the center of all. Not your ego. ‘You’ are the center of all. This is the real meditation.
Gurugītā is a very esoteric text full of gifts inside; hidden gifts that humans cannot see.
Inferior meditation is meditating in the cakra, in this cakra (Sahasrāra cakra). But if you meditate in this cakra with distance, it’s more inferior… more more absurd. So, at least meditate inside the cakra. You have to visualize yourself… feeling yourself that you are inside. And if you are wiser, you meditate like you are the Guru and this universe is the triangle. This is the best meditation because this is the way God thinks. God wrote that scripture; God, not humans. Śiva wrote that scripture. So He wrote for Śiva, not for paśu-s (for limited people). So Gurugītā is a very esoteric text full of gifts inside… hidden gifts that humans cannot see. They need the help of a Guru. Without Guru, they cannot see. Guru is a liberated person. Liberated persons… In other systems (like in Gurdjieff’s system… there are different degrees of liberation in Gurdjieff’s system), liberated people are called Conscious men. Only a conscious man can help you to understand Gurugītā. Nobody else.
