Consciousness Rises Above the Physical and Astral Realms

“Sat Guru Kabir said that the yogi who practices meditation will rise above all of these (the chakras) and going above the Eighth Chakra, reaches a region where the lotus has countless petals [sahans dal kanwal, thousand petaled lotus]. The yogi then sees the Light of millions of moons and suns, and becomes silent. When one, through realization, reaches the eternal abode, he hears beautiful music that is played without hands, and sees elegant dancing performed without feet. This is a transcendental state in which bliss is experienced. In this transcendental state one hears heavenly sound and heavenly singing without the use of ears and mouth. The divine Melody is always resounding when one becomes attuned to it through diligent practice. In that state one sees countless, beautiful, divine forms but without the use of eyes. And there one sees and feels soothing waves rising constantly when there is no water. In that state one sees countless pure and resplendent gems. Their glittering Light is infinite and eternal. This is an inner state of Enlightenment. When the yogi reaches this state of realization, he becomes aware that the Self is free of the support of the body, space, heaven and earth. His consciousness rises above the physical and astral forms, and then even death becomes his servant. This state of consciousness is one of unity with God.” (Book of Brahm Nirupan)
