Maha Shivaratri with Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in Bangalore 與古儒吉的濕婆節——班克羅

Maha Shivaratri with Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in Bangalore

Karnataka, India, 7th Mar 2013 - 11th Mar 2013

Shivaratri means ‘the night of Shiva’ and is observed in honor of Lord Shiva (The meditative aspect of the Universe).

‘Shiva’ reversed is Vashi. Vashi means control. Control is of the mind. Control also means weakness. One is not doing something naturally but exerting pressure. Control is an illusion. Control is a temporary exertion of energy in the mind. That is Vashi. Shiva is opposite. Shiva is the permanent and eternal source of energy, the eternal state of Being, the One without a second.
‘Ratri’ means that which gives rest, takes you into its lap and comfort.  Night is always comforting, all activities have stopped, everything is quiet, peaceful, environment becomes quiet, body gets tired and goes to sleep. Shivaratri is a rest which is so deep! When the mind, intellect and ego rests in the Divine that is the real rest. Ratri has a different meaning actually – that which gives relief from the three types of problems is Ratri.  What are the three things? Shanti, Shanti, Shanti: Peace to the body, to the mind and to the soul - Adhyatmik, Adibhoutik and Adidaivik.  Three types of peace are needed; one is material peace, if there is disturbance around you, you cannot sit and stay peaceful. You need peace in your environment, and you need peace in the body and mind. Third thing is peace in the soul.  You may have peace in the atmosphere, you may enjoy health in the body, to an extent peace in the mind, but if the soul is restless, nothing can comfort.  So that peace is also essential. Only in the presence of all the three types of peace can there be complete peace.  Without one, the other is incomplete. Shivaratri is transcendental, divine consciousness which brings solace to all layers of consciousness.  Resting in the Shiva tatva is Shivaratri.

與古儒吉的濕婆節——班克羅

Shivaratri (湿婆拉蒂/濕婆節)的意思是“湿婆之夜”而它是荣耀上主湿婆(宇宙的静心观)。
Shiva”(湿婆)反过来是“Vashi”(婆湿)。Vashi 的意思是控制。控制心智。控制也意味著弱点。一个人并没有在做自然的事情而是在施加压力。控制只是個幻像。控制是暫時性的去發揮心智裡的能量。這是VashiShiva就相反。Shiva是長久而永恆的能量來源,永恆的存在狀態,唯一而沒有其二的。

Ratri”(拉蒂)的意思是給予休息,把你帶入它的圈圈和舒適裡。晚間總是舒服的,所有的活動都靜止,一切是安靜,平靜的,環境變得很安靜,疲累的身體得以休息。Shivaratri 是很深沉的休息!當心智,理智和小我在神性裡歇息,這就是真正的休息。 Ratri 其實有不同的意思——從三種問題中緩解就是Ratri。那三樣東西是什麼?Shanti, Shanti, Shanti(桑蒂,桑蒂,桑蒂):讓身體,心智和靈魂平靜——Adhyatmik, Adibhoutik Adidaivik(阿蒂達比)。三種平靜是需要的;一種是物質的平靜,如果你的周圍有動亂,你不能平靜的坐著。在環境裡你需要平靜,而在身體和心智裡也需要平靜。第三樣是靈魂的平靜。你也許有平靜的環境,你也許在享受健康的身體,以及在某個程度上心智的平靜,但是如果靈魂是煩躁不安的,是沒有什麼可以安撫它的。所以這個平靜也是必要的。唯有這三樣平靜同時存在才會有完整的平靜。缺一不可。 Shivaratri 是超然的,慰藉各個層面的意識的神性意識。在Shiva tatva(濕婆原則)裡歇息就是Shivaratri。
