Why Shiv blesses vaishnvas

Shiv is more pleased with vaishnavs who surrender to Him than even His own devotees and awards them the prem they seek due to the following three reasons. Why? One reason is because vaishnavs come to Him for the very same thing (bhakti) which He Himself aspires for and dwells in 24/7! Second reason is that, being the topmost vaishnav Himself, He considers himself a servant, order carrier, and guru of all vaishnavs. But, more so, because, these vaishnavs could have easily directly approached His Supreme Lord Krishna/Radhe/Gaura/Nitai thinking themselves artificially and prematurely qualified to do so. But still they have knowingly taken a humble dasanudas servant of the servant position and instead approached Him (Shiv) for Krishna prem! This pleases Him and all His associates so much!
The safest position in this material world

The safest position for every soul in this material world is to spend one's entire existence as a devotee of the devotee of God, not as the direct devotee of God, which we nityabaddhas are not at the present moment. Those who understand this even theoretically are already 75% on the path to the spiritual world because they are accepting a humble position before God and His devotee!
A true Guru never takes a single thing for granted

A true Guru is always filled with gratefulness to the very brim of his heart because he thinks that he is utterly unworthy of all the services he is receiving from his disciples as he does not deserve even a single thing and that his disciples have been sent by Sarva Guru Shiv and the Guru Parampara to put him and others, he can help due to their services to him, on the path to the spiritual world.

2-5 am

We now have a new 360-degrees surround sound small just 1 kg yet so loud 50W battery-powered portable speaker with a wireless karaoke mic with the most soul-drenching lush, dense, and deep sound I've personally heard in my life, yes even more profound than my recent perfectly mastered audios, all due to your kind help. Those who were struggling with dhyan for years are now getting effortless dhyan as soon as I start singing mantras on this speaker. This has left me so utterly shocked at the forcibly-revealing sound this $100 speaker is producing with the right settings! So today, we'll be having our first Mantra Yoga session from 3-5 am in the early morning. 2-5 am is the best time for meditation hand down! Even one hour of deep meditation during these 3 vata hours is equal to 6 hours of meditation at other times. Kapha sleepiness starts kicking in from 5-5:30 am as Kapha time officially starts at 6 am. We'll also be starting mantra yoga music group walks on the streets soon with this fantabulous speaker! I'm still dizzy and totally drowned in its sound!

1. For vivid, deepest, handsfree, secret, and unknown-to-others roop dhyan, anytime anywhere during any or no practice, just mentally repeat "ksham क्षं" while focusing on your ajna chakra (command center), which is one finger width above the middle-center of your forehead in the same vertical line!

2. For even more roop dhyan depth and long-lasting effect, you can also do gentle anulom-vilom / nadi shodhan alternate nostril breathing while mentally repeating "ksham क्षं" once each during inhalation and exhalation and focusing on your ajna chakra with your right thumb placed on your right nostril (for right handers), last two fingers on your left nostril, and your middle two fingers straightened and stretched upwards to gently rest on and massage your ajna chakra, while both the middle fingers being horizontally separated from each other also by one finger width.

👁 क्षं KSHAM (Garud Beej) = AJNA CHAKRA = THIRD EYE - Philosophy

The ajna chakra, also known as the third eye chakra, is one of the seven main chakras in the Vedic and Yogic chakra system. It is located in the forehead, one finger width above the center of the forehead. This chakra is associated with intuition, perception, and spiritual awareness. The seed syllable or bija mantra associated with the ajna chakra is said to be "ksham" or "om/aum."

The meaning and significance of "ksham" as the seed syllable for the ajna chakra are as follows:

1. Meaning of Ksham: The Sanskrit word "ksham" is derived from the root "kshama," which means "to forgive," "to pardon," or "to endure." In the context of the ajna chakra, it symbolizes the ability to forgive, let go of negative thoughts and emotions, and cultivate inner peace and stillness.

2. Connection to the third eye: The ajna chakra is often represented by the symbol of a third eye, which is associated with inner vision, intuition, and spiritual perception. The seed syllable "ksham" is believed to help awaken and activate this chakra, facilitating the development of these abilities.

3. Purification and transformation: The act of forgiveness and letting go, represented by "ksham," is seen as a way to purify the mind and transform negative energies into positive ones. This process is considered essential for opening and balancing the ajna chakra, which can lead to greater clarity, wisdom, and spiritual growth.

4. Tolerance: Ksham represents forgiveness, patience, and tolerance. It is believed that cultivating these qualities helps in opening and balancing the Ajna chakra.

5. Resonation: The sound vibration of Ksham is thought to resonate with the energy frequency of the Ajna chakra, thus helping to activate and stimulate it.

6. Clarity: Repeating Ksham is considered a means of purifying the mind and promoting clarity, which are essential aspects of the Ajna chakra.

7. Phonetic Components: The syllable "Ksham" combines the sounds "Ksh" and "Am." In Sanskrit, "Ksh" can denote endurance, patience and a sense of time and space, while "Am" can be seen as a sound of existence or being.

8. Symbolic Meanings: Ksham is sometimes interpreted as embodying the qualities of forgiveness and patience. These attributes are essential for mental clarity and spiritual insight, aligning with the functions of the Ajna chakra, which governs inner vision & wisdom.

9. Ksham's Connection: Ksham, with its associations of patience and forgiveness, helps clear mental blockages and promotes a state of mental stillness & focus, which are necessary for the activation and balancing of the Ajna chakra.

10. Poison-Destroying Mantra Garuda Bija क्षं : Ksham is the "Garuda bija" or seed syllable of Garuda, the gigantic bird vehicle and greatest devotee of Lord Vishnu. Garuda is known as the destroyer of serpents, which represent our toxic tendencies & diseases, fears, slithery side, crooked spitefulness, venomous evilness, darkness, negativities within us. Snakes are connected to venom, poisonous substances and poisonous diseases such as cancer. Garuda is the archetypal energy that destroys venomous evil tendencies within us by repeating Ksham.

11. Shakti Energy: By chanting or meditating on Ksham, one invokes the Shakti energy to burn away mental, emotional, and physical toxins, removing obstacles on the spiritual path towards enlightenment.

12. Union of Shiv and Shakti: The union of Ham (Shiva) and Ksham (Shakti) in the two petals of the Ajna chakra represents the integration of the masculine and feminine energies, leading to spiritual awakening and transcendence of duality.

13: End of Bondage: Ksham as the seed syllable of the third eye chakra symbolizes the purifying and transformative power of the divine feminine force that destroys ignorance and liberates the individual from bondage.

With the seed mantra "ksham क्षं", the emphasis is on forgiveness, purification, and transformation as a pathway to opening and balancing this most important command (ajna) chakra which governs everything else.
Anukulasya Sankalpah (Accepting What is Favorable) for Even More Hari Katha Ruchi and Dhyan is Not Mundane Hari Katha

One may think that the above Yogic knowledge, which is being shared, for the sole purpose of enhancing Hari's and Haribhakt's roop dhyan in shravan-kirtan-smaran, is mundane and not Hari katha. But one forgets that Hari katha is of three types:

1. Hari katha of the glories of the associates, abode, name, form, qualities, and the pastimes of the Lord.

2. Hari katha of the philosophy or tattva of bhakti yoga and the deep philosophy behind the above features of the Lord.

3. And thirdly that katha is also Hari katha which gives us the mind and body balancing tools to increase our dhyan (absorption), ruchi (relish), and nairantarya (continuity) in the above first two types of Hari katha, especially in this Kaliyuga where almost everyone is imbalanced in some way. Such tools and tips should not be considered some concoctions of the mind and not a part of bhakti yoga. They are actually shared by our Namacharya Haridas Thakur and Bhaktivinod Thakur in Hari Nam Chintamani, Bhagavad Gita, and various other Bhakti scriptures. For example, covering oneself with a blanket while chanting, sitting alone in a solitary place while chanting to develop a relationship with the holy name or form, looking at the form of a Deity, sitting still, etc. Rejecting this third type of Hari katha of Bhakti/Dhyan tips as mundane is rejecting the very first limb of sharangati or surrender known as "anukulasya sankalpah", which is the whole-hearted and one-pointed acceptance of things which are favourable to increasing the absorption, clarity, and continuity of our Krishna consciousness. The means to reach the goal are also parts of the goal.
What is Wrong in This?

What is wrong, if to quickly attain Krishna prem, someone, along with the Guru Parampara, wants to one-pointedly surrender unto and worship the all-forgiving savior of the most offensive demons Shivji, one of the topmost and most beloved maha vaishnav bhakts and servitors of both Nitai Gaur and Radha Krishna in both and material and spiritual worlds, who is also Sarva Guru of all living entities forever in this universe according to Gaur Himself as he is still physically present and will always be physically present in this universe and all the other 9 trillion+ universes in this material world, in order to causelessly help zillions of eternally lost souls attain the spiritual world? After all, all the scriptures expressly advice us that the only way to attain Krishna prem is to choose one maha bhagavata and whole-heartedly and one-pointedly surrender at his or her lotus feet and only then he or she will take the full responsibility to fully and permanently extricate our soul from this material world!
Experience Shared on Telegram: There have been some devotees who had been very outspoken on various strict and controversial philosophical topics and in the process, they offended many pure devotees, committing Vaishnava aparadha. Now, they have become very rough in their own dealings with others.
