The Mantra Glides

Swami Veda Bharati took his Mahasamadhi July 14, 2015. He holds the prestigious title of Mahamandaleshwara in the Swami order of monks.  Swami Veda was also the Chancellor of HIHT University, Dehradun, which was established by Master Swami Rama. He authored approximately 18 books on Indian spirituality including a 1500-page comprehensive commentary on two of the four chapters of Patanjali’s Yoga-sutras. Before taking the vows of Swamihood in 1992, Swami Veda Bharati was known as Dr. Usharbudh Arya.

Mantra glides“The mantra glides, soaring through the skies of the breezes of breath in the rarefied atmosphere. In the stratosphere beyond the mind it streaks across the shining cosmic rays, like a falling star descending to our earthly mind. The bells ringing in your ears are not of the bronze of this earth.

A pillar of light rises from the firm ground of your posture and penetrates into heaven. The faith here moves no mountains; it makes steady the fragments of your limbs.

While in subterranean caves, fires burn unseen, volcanoes explode, the underground lakes and streams churn unhindered, the body sits rock-like and the spirit moves. The breath of God gently stirs the reservoirs within.

The waves that strike your shores, the tides that swell from head to toe, the Pacific depths that rise in the voice of Sophia, who makes your mouth her dwelling, sings:

These are your friends from the lands of Eternity.

The journey is not too long, only a few incarnations.

The ocean is not too wide, only a few aeons.

Patience, brother soul, you will reach as others have in the past. When pranas become your friends and your mantra glides in the stratosphere beyond, the mind knows that the other shore is very near and that the boat of your body will reach the land of lands. The land of reality and light.”
