Meditation to Develop the Radiant Body

This extraordinary meditation is to be done with great precision. Make sure the hand mudra and the position of the hands over the head are held correctly and fixed. As you recite the Ik Acharee Chand mantra (Ajai Alai) of Guru Gobind Singh, hear each word as a world–each word as complete as you speak, projecting with the Fifth Chakra and vibrating the sound as naad with the Eighth Chakra.  This will build and expand the Radiant Body. It is through this expanded Radiant Body that we can hold the link and space as teachers. With that radiance our communication becomes impersonally personal.

When the Radiant Body is depleted, we feel we have to do everything. We’re better than some people and worse than others. When your hidden agendas are put aside and your radiance is strong, your presence embodies your teacher. You are beyond comparison and act in love and duty to your students. You teach in the name of the teacher and take no finite claim. You act in love and dissolve yourself in the rhythms of infinity without hesitation. Without the full Radiant Body, we grasp for some security other than our Being and the Infinite. With the Radiant Body strong, our presence communicates contentment, containment, completeness and consciousness.

  1. “At a certain moment, when your mind is clean, the last of your ten bodies, the radiant body begins to work. When your radiance starts to work, then you start living, loving and enjoying being a human .If your subconscious is clean so that your conscious and supreme conscious become one then you become a very beautiful human being. And that’s the purpose of the life to become a beautiful human being.”
