A long tradition

The Project Mauli

THE PROJECT MAULI initiative of Bodhmarga foundation is an attempt to reach out to and ensure well-being of every human being, family and society in all areas of life. It is an outcome of the deep understanding that love, compassion and sharing with all life forms is Oneness in action, i.e Advaita. The word “Mauli” means mother and it is the love of a mother which is the most supreme form of love that a human being is capable of. The word “healing” means “giving love” or “loving”. We know that the best healer to a baby is the mother. This is because of the unconditional love that the mother has for the child. Primarily, it is the healing touch of the mother which sees the child through during its formative years. Studies have revealed that the touch of the mother is important for the survival of the child. In fact, it is often noticed that if there is no love in the family, pets and even plants die.

 

This project is aimed at creating “Maulis”, who would pass on the benefits of the BodhMarga initiative to a wider spectrum of population through the medium of love, just as a mother nurtures and imparts life lessons to her off-springs in an atmosphere of unconditional love. In other words, the main intent of this project is to spread the epidemic of love around the Globe. It may be mentioned here that “Mauli” is a quality, which can be acquired irrespective of the gender involved. The only requirement is a strong willingness to positively impact the well-being of other people.

 

It cannot be emphasized enough that the root cause of all suffering in the world is lack of love. It is this lack which gives rise to various addictions, food cravings (and resultant obesity) and even depression. The struggle that one experiences in life and the constant seeking of attention i.e. outward-bound behavior are all due to lack of love. It is only when you love and accept yourself totally that you become capable of loving another.

 

Without love, one may continue to exist but the juice of aliveness is lost. Conversely, when one is filled with love, life just moves on effortlessly and arranges itself conducively around such a person, so much so that even finances are automatically taken care of. This may sound like a tall claim but this has been the experience of countless number of persons.

 

Love is the master-key to all our suffering-whether physical, mental, psychological or emotional. Further, in a state of love, awareness is a natural corollary as mind becomes less active. In such a state, all types of cravings and addictions disappear. One instinctively knows what is good for body and even eating becomes need-based rather than an act of compulsion.

 

When there is lack of love, we are susceptible to the onslaught of the alien vibrations. So the remedy for this is to restore love in our lives. In order to create love for and within ourselves, all that we have to do is to get rid of the barriers which we have created against ourselves. When we are in a state of love, we return to the basic vibrational state of “HARI”, thereby curing ourselves of whatever ailments we have attracted to ourselves.

 

“Maulis” will reach out to people and enable them to restore love in their lives.

PRACTICES THAT ARE INTENDED IN THIS PROJECT

Siddha Sound Therapy Or Vibrational Medicine:

This is aimed at balancing out one’s vibrational imbalances using sound therapy, while at the same time growing in meditation. Many people find it really difficult to start meditation/yoga practices due to bodily aches and pains, chronic illnesses and diseases. Sound Therapy is employed to ease these people of their chronic pains and diseases. It also aids in stilling the mind leading one to a meditative state.

 

It may be reiterated here that the basis of every state of mind and matter, including conditions of disease or health, is their primary state of vibration. As discussed earlier, diseases are a result of the natural resonances getting out of tune – whether due to stress, illness, anxiety, frustration, environmental factors such as noise pollution etc. Exposure to the healing sounds has a significantly positive impact on one’s physical, emotional, and mental wellbeing.

 

The use of sound for spiritual ascension and general wellbeing is very ancient. In India, the NaathYogis were the pioneers in recognizing and using the therapeutic benefits of sound, light and vibrations. Now, this therapy is also on the frontiers of modern neuroscience. As per the Siddha philosophy, the therapists are not ordinary beings but are vaidyas, meaning one who is an evolved soul. They recognized the fact that through the medium of sound, even the intention, mood and positivity of the therapist is transferred to the recipient.

Vitthal Nada Yoga:

The very sound made by the word “Vitthal” leads the one who utters it to the inner world. In fact, Yogic Chanting has always been recognized as the first step towards meditation and spiritual growth. It also helps in maintaining health and well-being. In fact, recent research has indicated that chanting “Vit-TThal” loudly, while being in yogic posture, can lead to a stable heart rate, lower blood pressure, improved blood circulation, increased production of endorphins and aids metabolic process. Chanting can also help to focus the mind, which in turn alleviates stress levels. At BodhMarga, one is taught to chant Vitthala in a specific and accurate manner so as to derive maximum benefit from the emanating sound. This helps the person to remain rooted in his spiritual practice or sadhana.

 

It is noticed that just after a few minutes of chanting, one gradually develops similar sound vibrations within. Once this practice is continued for a longer time, one will be able to hear the anahata, or the inner sound. In the path of Vitthal Nada Yoga, one eventually goes within and communes with the deep inner sounds of the chakras, including the great AUM sound.

PanthaRaj Kriya Yoga or BodhKriya:

The Pantharaj Kriya leads the yogi to the realization of Advaita Vedanta. Oneness can only be experienced when duality is overcomed, which is possible only when our inner energy from ida and pingala enters into sushumna. Else, such an experience of oneness is impossible and it only remains a philosophical thought.

 

Although all forms of Yoga can take a sincere seeker to Self-realization, yet Sant Dnyaneshwara’s Pantha Raja Yoga is considered as the royal path and is the fastest one. It is an advanced Raja Yoga technique as it works directly on the inner life-force, leading the practitioner to a state of devotional love (Bhakti), which is a natural corollary to knowing and union. In fact, Sant Dnyaneshwar has termed this phenomenon as “Gyanottar Bhakti”

Friends, we once again welcome you to this DIVINE path of self-realisation !
