The Garden of Bliss
This following story is about you
and everyone who was created by God.
It’s the story of your very own soul.
See before you
the Heavenly Father, our Creator.
Gaze into His radiant face
brighter than a thousands suns.
He is a God of joy
and His nature is bliss.
But as Spirit beyond creation,
He had no one with whom to share His joy.
So God made you.
To enjoy Himself through many,
God projected His consciousness outwards
to manifest the vast universe
through the Sacred AUM Vibration.
AUM is the outpouring of God’s love
flowing to you—and to all creation.
When you commune with AUM,
you enter into, and flow with,
the stream of God’s love.
Visualize yourself standing with the Heavenly Father.
It is the morning of creation.
Feel the vibrations of His love
entering your heart and filling you with joy.
Dwelling in Cosmic AUM, you live in the paradise
of your Father’s Peace, Bliss, and Light.
You are a child of Cosmic AUM. All human life and consciousness emanates from this Sacred Vibration. AUM is the Comforter who reveals God’s loving presence and teaches you that only God is Real.
Swami Kriyananda says “AUM begins to seep into your mind first of all. Then it comes down the spine bursting open the door of the heart, filling you with Love, filling you with Joy.”
After hearing the Holy AUM Vibration, Saint Francis said it was, “a music so sweet and so beautiful that had it lasted a moment longer, he would have melted away from the sheer joy it.”
Paramhansa Yogananda said, “The Lord has created all men from the limitless joy of His being.” AUM is the channel through which God shares His bliss with you.
Both Paramhansa Yogananda and Swami Kriyananda have written profoundly about Cosmic AUM and how to commune with it. Listening to AUM is not only part of the path of Kriya Yoga, but the ultimate goal.
“Just as light is the property of a lighted lamp,” said Lahiri Mahasaya, “so the sound of AUM is the intrinsic property of the stage of samadhi.”
Communing with AUM Program
Expanding Light Retreat at Ananda Village, July 16 – 18, 2010
Lead by Nayaswami Bharat, the program is designed for those with a deep interest in AUM who have a strong meditation practice.
For disciples of Paramhansa Yogananda, there will be a additional AUM technique class.
If you’re not a disciple and would like to take the program, use the contact information below to speak with Bharat’s wife, Anandi.
You will learn little-known techniques taught by Paramhansa Yogananda for merging into Sacred AUM. Visualizations, devotional AUM meditations, chanting, inspirational stories, and deep yogic teachings will bring the Cosmic Vibration alive for you.
There will also be an evening of heart-opening chanting to the Cosmic Vibration, interspersed with quiet listening and absorption, that will help you draw even more deeply on the sacred vibrations of AUM.
May the blissful vibrations of Cosmic AUM always inspire you.
In divine friendship,
