All the small communes, ashrams, centers, all over the world will become little buddhafields. I know myself, I am blissful - it is good, but from where does this "I" arise? That's bad for you. Those who are ready to take the last jump know existence and also non-existence. This is a vision which embraces all human experience, from sex to superconsciousness. If there is not single trace of unhappiness - no anxiety, no tension in it - how long can one bear such bliss? Opens you up and help you expand your perspective.
So the greatest obstacle on the fifth plane is the unparalleled joy we experience - and more so because we come from a world where there is nothing but pain, suffering, anxiety, and tension. Then, when we reach this temple of bliss, there is an overwhelming desire to dance with ecstasy, to be drowned, to be lost in this bliss.
This is not the place to be lost. That place will come, and then you will not have to lose yourself; you will simply be lost. There is a great difference between losing yourself and being lost. In other words, you will reach a place where even if you wish, you cannot save yourself. Yet here also in the fifth body you can lose yourself. Your effort, your endeavour, still works here - and even though the ego is intrinsically dead on the fifth plane, "I-am-ness" still persists.
It is necessary, therefore, to understand the difference between ego and "I-am-ness". The ego, the feeling of "I", will die, but the feeling of "am" will not die. There are two things in "I-am", the "I" is the ego and the "am" is the asmita - the feeling of being. So the "I" will die on the fifth plane, but the being, the "am", will remain: Standing on this plane, a meditator will declare, "There are infinite souls and each soul is different and apart from the other.
If the quest for truth grips the mind, the obstacle of bliss can be crossed - because incessant bliss becomes tedious. A single strain of a melody can become irksome. Bertrand Russel once said jokingly, "I am not attracted to salvation because I hear there is nothing but bliss there. Bliss alone would be very monotonous - bliss and bliss and nothing else. If there is not single trace of unhappiness - no anxiety, no tension in it - how long can one bear such bliss?
It is very difficult to overcome. Sometimes it takes many births to do so. The first four steps are not so hard to take, but the fifth is very difficult. Many births may be needed to be bored with bliss, to be bored with the self, to be bored with atman. The quest up to the fifth body is to rid oneself of pain, hatred, violence, and desires.
After the fifth, the aim of the search is to be rid of the self. So there are two things: The second thing is freedom from the self and a completely new world starts here. Cosmic Body - Ajna Chakra. Ajna and Shakta Fantastic Introduction to the Chakras.
The sixth is the Brahma sharira, the cosmic body, and the sixth chakra is the agya [ajna] chakra. Here, there is no duality. The experience of bliss become intense on the fifth plane and the experience of existence, of being, on the sixth. Asmita - I am - will now be lost. The "I" in this is lost at the fifth plane and the "am" will go as soon as you transcend the fifth. The "is-ness" will be felt; tathata, suchness will be felt. Nowhere will there be the feeling of "I" or of "am"; only that which is remains.
So here will be the perception of reality, of being - the perception of consciousness. But here the consciousness is free of me; it is no longer my consciousness. It is only consciousness - no longer my existence but only existence [chit].
Some meditators stop after reaching the Brahma sharira, the cosmic body, because the state of "I am the Brahman" has finally arrived - of "Aham Brahmasmi," when I am not and only the Brahman is.
Now what more is there to seek?
What is to be sought? Nothing remains to be sought. Now everything is attained. The Brahman means the total. One who stands at this point says. There is nothing beyond. It is possible to stop here, and seekers do stop at this stage for millions of births because there seems to be nothing ahead.
So the Brahma gyani, the one who has attained realization of the Brahman, will get stuck here; they will go no further. This stage is so difficult to cross because there is nothing to cross to. Everything has been covered. Does not one need a space to cross into? If I want to go outside this room, there must be somewhere else to go.
But the room has now become so enormous, so beginingless and endless, so infinite, so boundless, that there is nowhere to go. Where will we go to search? Nothing remains to be found; everything has been covered. So the journey may halt at this stage for infinite births. The Brahman is therefore the ultimate obstacle - the last barrier in the ultimate quest of the seeker.
Now, only the being remains but non-being has yet to be realised. The Being, the "is-ness", is known but that which is not, still remains to be known.
Therefore, the seventh plane is the the nirvana kaya , nirvanic body, and its chakra is the sahasrar. Nothing can be said in connection with this chakra. We can only continue talking at the most up to the sixth - and that, too, with great difficulty. Most of it turns out to be misleading - yet we attempt to describe and explain.
Until the fifth body, the search progresses within very scientific parameters; everything can be explained. On the sixth plane, the horizon begins to fade; everything seems meaningless. Hints can still be given but, ultimately, the pointing finger breaks and the hints too are no more because one's own being is eliminated.
So the Brahman, the absolute being, is known from the sixth body and the sixth chakra. Therefore, those who seek the Brahman will meditate on the agya [ajna] chakra which is between the eyes [eyebrow centre]. This chakra is connected to the cosmic body. Those who work completely on this chakra will begin to call the vast infinite expanse that they witness - "the third eye". This is the third eye through which they can now view the cosmic, the infinite.
The Journey to Non-Being, Nirvana. One more journey yet remains - the journey to non-being, non-existence. Existence is only half the story: Light is but, on the other side, there is darkness. Life is one part but there is also death. Therefore, it is necessary to know as well, the remaining non-existence, the void, because the ultimate truth can only be known when both are known -- existence and non-existence.
Being is known in its entirety and non-being is known in its entirety: Existence is known in its entirety and non-existence is known in its entirety: Otherwise, our experience is incomplete. There is an imperfection in Brahma gyan, which is that it has not been able to know the non-being. Therefore, the Brahma gyani denies that there is such a thing as non-existence and calls it an illusion. He says that is does not exist. He says that to be is the truth and not to be is a falsity.
There simply is no such thing, so the question of knowing it does not arise. Nirvana kaya means the shunya kaya, the void from where we jump from the Being into the Non-Being.
In the cosmic body, something yet remains unknown. That, too, has to be known -- what it is not to be, what it is to be completely erased. Therefore, the seventh plane in a sense is an ultimate death. Nirvana, as I informed you previously, means the extinction of the flame.
That which was "I" is extinct; that which was "am" is extinct. But now we have again come into Being by being one with All. Now we are the Brahman and this, too, will have to be left behind. Those who are ready to take the last jump know existence and also non-existence. So these are the seven bodies and the seven chakras and, within them, lie all the means as well as the barriers. There are no barriers outside. Therefore, there is not much reason to inquire outside. If you have gone to ask someone, then do not beg.
To understand is one thing, to beg is quite another. Your search should always continue.
Whatever you have heard and understood should also be made your search. Do not make it your belief or else it will be begging.
You asked me something; I gave you an answer. If you have come for alms, you will put this in your bag and store it away as your treasure. Then you are not a meditator but a beggar.
No, what I told you should become your quest. It should accelerate your search; it should stimulate and motivate your curiosity. It should put you into greater difficulty, make you more restless and raise new questions in you, new dimensions, so that you will set out on a new path of discovery.
If you do this you have not taken alms from me and you have understood what I said. And if this helps you to understand yourself, then this is not begging. So go forth to know and understand; go forth to search. You are not the only one seeking; many others are also. Many have searched, many have attained enlightened. Try to know, to grasp, what has happened to such people and also what has not happened; try and understand all this.
But while understanding this, do not stop trying to understand your own self. Do not think that understanding others has become your own self-realization.
Do not put faith in their experiences; do not believe them blindly. Rather, turn everything into questioning. Turn them into questions and not answers; then your journey will continue. Then it will not be begging: It is your search that will take you to the last.
As you penetrate within yourself, you will find the two sides of each chakra. As I informed you, one side is given to you by nature and the other side you have to discover for yourself. Anger is given to you; forgiveness you have to find, develop and refine. Sex is given to us; brahmacharya [conscious mastery of the sexual energy], we have to develop, nurture, understand. Dreams we have; vision we can consciously evolve. The search for the opposite will continue up to the fourth chakra.
From the fifth will start the search for the indivisible, for the non-dual. We try to continue the search for that which is different from what has come to us in the fifth body.
When we attain to bliss, we can try to find out what there is beyond bliss. On the sixth plane, we attain the Brahman but keep inquiring, "What is there beyond the Brahman? That is the attainment of the ultimate This is why our scriptures end with the fifth body or, at the most, they go up to the sixth body. Those with a completely scientific turn of mind do not talk about what is after the fifth body. The cosmic reality, which is boundless and unlimited, begins from there.
But Mystics, like the Sufis, talk of the planes beyond the fifth. It is very difficult to talk of these planes because one has to contradict oneself again and again. If we go through the text of all that one Sufi has said, we will say that this person is inconsistent with their descriptions.
Sometimes she will say one thing and sometimes something else. She may say, "God is" and she may also say, "God is not. It is not an object that the eyes can see! These Mystics raise such questions that you will wonder if they are asking themselves or others. Mysticism starts on the sixth plane. Therefore, where there is no mysticism in a religion, know that is has finished on the fifth body.
But Mysticism also is not the final stage. The Ultimate is the void -- nothingness. The religion that ends with Mysticism, ends with the sixth body. The Void is the ultimate, because after it, there is nothing more to be said. So the search for adwaita, the non-dual, starts with the fifth body. All search for the opposites, ends with the fourth body. All barriers are within us, and they are useful because these very obstacles, when transformed, become our vehicles for progress.
A rock is lying on the road. As long as we do not understand it, it will remain an obstacle for us. The day we understand it, it will become a ladder instead of a snake. The rock is lying on the road: How can I possibly proceed?
When we have understood, we will climb over the rock and continue with our journey, thanking the rock with kind words and blessings, "O rock!
You have blessed me very, very mucho, because after climbing over you, I am now on a higher level. Now I can proceed to higher and higher levels.
Thank you rock! I thought that you were an unmoving enemy, but you have turned out to be a mighty teacher, without whose lesson I could not continue.
You were the means, and I mistook you for a barrier. The road is blocked by this boulder. What will happen?
Cross over it and know. In this way, overcome anger, cross over it and reach the cool and infinite pool of forgiveness, which we could say is "on an entirely different level". Cross over sex and attain to brahmacharya [conscious mastery of sexual energy], which is again "on an entirely different level.
They are our "Transcendental Trainers". Every rock on the path can be a barrier as a well as a "medium". It does depend entirely on what we do with them and how we perceive these "rocks".
One thing is for certain: If we fight with a rock, the rock will bar our way onwards, because wherever we fight, we stop. We have to stop near the person or thing we fight with; we cannot possibly fight from a distance.
That is why if someone fights sex, they have to be involved with sex just as much as another who indulges in it. In fact, many times the fighter is closer to sex because the one who indulges in it can get out of it some day, they can transcend it! He sits in an orange armchair in the far corner of the room, legs crossed, the novel resting lightly on one knee.

The second half describes my involvement at our communal ranch in Central Oregon. My initial purpose in writing had nothing to do with publishing. I wanted to explore its potential for examining what destroyed our community from a viewpoint outside myself, on paper.
I needed to understand what led to our collapse, and what part if any I may have played. As I progressed, however, I realized that others might welcome seeing how this destructive path came about, and perhaps notice a resemblance, as I did, between the behaviors that led to our downfall and similar behaviors in the larger world that might be recognized if we chose to pay closer attention. Mahadevi emphasizes that enlightenment is a scientific fact and not mere "philosophy,".

All the small communes, ashrams, centers, all over the world will become little buddhafields. We have to fill the whole earth with buddhafields!
We have to create a chain of buddhafields. There are many books with good advice: It makes sense and sounds easy, but anyone who has tried it knows just how difficult it is to do in practice. And often the only YES we know is a compromise - we deny our own needs and juice for life in order to please others - and that leaves us feeling miserable and unsatisfied. This book explains the hidden dynamics in your unconscious which get in the way of change. Understanding that gives you choices, for the first time.
The book gives real, practical techniques for everyday situations where problems arise: In essence, it is about changing yourself from the inside, and then seeing the remarkable results that has on your life on the outside.

Fundamental clarification about chakras is Hindu Yoga believes in seven chakras, Jaina scriptures mention nine chakras and Buddhist scriptures say that there are dozens of chakras. They don't give any fixed number.
But perhaps Buddha's experience is correct- and that doesn't make the Hindu yoga or Jaina Yoga incorrect. Buddha is saying that there are energy fields, whirling energy fields, from the lowest point in our spine up to the very peak of our head. There are many; now it is only a questio Fundamental clarification about chakras is Hindu Yoga believes in seven chakras, Jaina scriptures mention nine chakras and Buddhist scriptures say that there are dozens of chakras.
There are many; now it is only a question of which ones are important. One we know is our sex center muladhar. The second, just above it, which is not recognized in any Indian school of thought but has been recognized in Japan alone, is called the hara. It is between the navel and the sex center.
The hara is the death chakra. In Japan, when somebody commits suicide, it is called hara-kiri. Nowhere in the world does such a thing happen except in Japan. Suicide is committed everywhere, but with a knife?
Just two inches below the navel, the Japanese forces a knife — and this is the most miraculous death; no blood, no pain — and death is instantaneous. So the first chakra is the life chakra; it is a whirling energy. Chakra means wheel, moving. Just above the life chakra is the death chakra. The third important chakra is the heart chakra, anahata.
