Dear reader

Greetings from Uttarkashi.

So much has happened and written about in a short space of time by so many people since my last message with the drama of the global pandemic. The only addition I can make is the knowledge expressed below which has its pervasive benefit and has kept us in good stead and continues to inspire and guide through us thick and thin, highs and lows.
I trust you and yours are well and protected and the info below will have practical utility for you.

Uttarkashi Purusha under lockdown, and a changing world for everyone
Very little has changed for us here, except that it was gratifying that the rest of the world joined us in being more silent and transcendental, despite the disruptions to health, economics and relative life in general.
This temporary inward stroke seems to have spawned a great deal of creativity and introspection, and if all the pundits of the world in areas of media, business, politics, health, and social life are to be believed, life on earth will never be the same again.
The Maharishi jyotishis seem to agree.
Locally here in the Himalayas, lockdown means only one person in each village could secure a government license to go to the local market to secure supplies for himself and the whole village. We have been able to get a license when required for the ashram to bring in essential supplies. In the Uttarkashi district there have been no infections, and it requires special permission from the government to access the area, with roadblocks in and out.
Thank you to all of you who enquired after our wellbeing.

Wishing you every possible support for health and joy at this time.
Jai Guru Dev

The Basic Thing is What Happens to Us

"All those who are going home, what you have experienced is familiarity with the finest fields of creative intelligence within. These longer times, longer time, longer time, taking the mind to experience the Sutras. Sutra after Sutra, finer feeling of Sutra after Sutra, finer Sutra after finer Sutra. This has made your awareness familiar with the administrative activity of cosmic life.

Finer you experience, finer fields of creativity you enliven in your awareness. Finer experience of each Sutra. Each Sutra enlivens the finer field of cosmic creativity in your single awareness. It is the greatest gift of life that you are enlivening for yourself.

And I tell you, don’t worry what happens to the national life or what happens to your environment, coherence and all …. These are the gossips.

We are not so much [concerned] by [what] the people say about our influence in the environment, the whole influence in Holland, in the national consciousness. It doesn’t matter what happens outside.

But basically our life, our consciousness, our Ātmā, our self becomes more and more stabilized in the total reality of cosmic constitution. That is our gain. We don’t mind what happens outside. We are happy to see that outside also becomes better, but basic thing is what happens to us.

After each meditation our own awareness, our own mind, our own intellect, our own consciousness is in tune more and more with that energy and intelligence which administers the universe. We are more and more administrator of cosmic life in our own Self. What will happen, our own desire, our own goals in life will be materialized for us more easily."

Master & disciples
Purusha sponsors are really precious by creating a partnership for securing coherence in the world by backing Purusha and their long deep programs. Please sponsor Purusha and their full time permanent commitment, the life of a recluse. Consider the words of Adi-Shankara:
“Whosoever gives to someone who dedicates himself fully to the quest for enlightenment receives the benefits of this man’s acts and meditations without having to undergo the tribulations associated with his life. Truly fortunate is one who supports the ascetic, because he doesn’t have to leave the comfort of his home to fully gain the advantage of this man’s tapas (meditations).” - Shankara Dig Vijaya.
