I have a question – Can practice of Tattva Shakti Vigyaan ( or any other genuine spiritual practice/sadhana) change my destiny?? If yes, to what extent can it change ?
Before I answer this question I must tell you here I may not be answering the question but the questioner. The destiny is what we go through between life and death and thus for a life begun the ultimate destin(y)ation is death. If death is destiny, which in all probability is – Sadhana is definitely a hope for much desired change in destiny. No other means except Sadhana can give you immortality. साधना की सफल परिणिति अमरत्व, यानि कि जन्म व मृत्यु के पार का अनुभव – अतः इस तल पर मृत्यु के ध्रुव सत्य को बदलने की सामर्थ्य सिर्फ प्रमाणिक साधना में ही है । So from this perspective spiritual practices do change your destiny.
Life feels like a continuous struggle for the human being. The flight of one’s desires and ambitions mostly exceeds the altitude capacities of the karmic-engines and thus sooner of later one begins to compare oneself with others on many points which otherwise wouldn’t have even mattered to a blissfully contended, educated or ignorant (wo)man. Even if no such drivers and reasons exist for considering destiny as a valid word in the dictionary and universe one thing happens for sure; You unfailingly feel bonded in matter… and unable to flutter one’s wings.. True this is! The soul has been trapped within the matter (body) for experiencing the world and evolve. Each soul is destined to go through the process of learningbetween life and death. Thus learning as a process is destiny and Sadhana does change the paradigm of learner, making it gets deeper and broader). साफ़ है कि यदि ज्ञानार्जन नियति है तो साधना इसे भी बदलने में समर्थ है।
I have heard that One day Mulla Nasiruddin was repairing tiles on the roof of his house. While Nasiruddinwas working on the roof, a stranger knocked the door.”What do you want?”Mulla shouted out from above.”Come down,” replied stranger “So I can tell it.”
Nasiruddin unwilling and slowly climbed down the long ladder.
“Well! What was the important thing? Asked Nasiruddin after reaching the ground.
“Could you give little money to this poor old man…?” begged stranger.
“Hmmm..” Tired Mulla started to climb up the ladder and said “Follow me up to the roof.”
When both Mulla and beggar were upside, on the roof, Nasiruddin turned back and said, “Well.. The answer is No!”
Now don’t ask me what happened after Mulla declared this to the beggar on the cliff of the ladder.
Some things are better left to imagination (laughs) but it is clear that, from business to recreation… be it home, road or office on day to day basis one engages with different aspects of life involving people and situations which requires one to make choices and take decisions. These choices and decisions are taken to ensure upward movement in respective desired domains. In fact the outcome of all such opportunities is governed (or better we call it destined) within the framework of Law of Karma depending upon the merit & quality of decisions one takes. So we see that in every day destiny a lot depends upon what types of decisions we take. Since ability to take correct decisions is enhanced by true Sadhana (TSV) as it synchronizes the logical & intuitive faculties of your mind. तो यह कहा जाये कि साधना हर पल हमारी नियति को बदलने की सामर्थ्य रखती है तो गलत नहीं होगा ।
Although Sadhana is done on and by using the first three layers of your being i.e. Matter-body, Energy Body and Mind-Body. The gigantic action and focused intent in these sheaths by you brings about changes in the layer beneath i.e. Knowledge Body – the seat of samskaras (tendencies) and past karmas (accumulated and ongoing action seeds- Praarabdha and even sanchit). In Tattva Shakti Vigyaan (TSV) procedures the individual efforts of the practitioner are resonated and amplified by already attuned elemental energies ensuring quicker and deeper penetration in otherwise untouched layers of your being. Further the guiding channel of masters’ intention ensure the seekers’ efforts are always directed towards the real goal. That is why initiation is having so much significance and in fact such pragmatic changes are exhibited only when one gets connected to a Guru-Mandala or a spiritual lineage of Masters. I can go to the extent of saying that even if you do not clearly understand the intricate mechanism of how Sadhana works on deeper karmic layers of
your being it is in best interest of any practitioner to have faith in the words of Master which says “Only through Sadhana you obtain the grace of divine which can change your destiny in true sense.”
