The great beings of Swamiji’s talk were the masters of our tradition, Bhagawan Nityananda and Baba Muktananda. Swamiji described Bhagawan’s method of drawing the breath upward into the sahasrara (the top most chakra). Swamiji said that ‘in every moment we have a choice. We can make an upward movement or a downward movement. We get this choice over and over. The choice is renewed every moment’.

Swamiji encouraged us to ‘make every effort to move in an upward direction. Your evolution will be precisely according to your nature … if you stay connected to the source you won’t come to grief’. As Baba said, ‘By taking refuge in kundalini, she will only take you higher and higher’. Swamiji added that the force of grace is greater than the force of karma or ignorance.

To end Swamiji said, ‘Great Beings inspire us to be the best we can be. The best effort is meditation. The goal of meditation is the place within characterised by peace and joy, our true
nature’. For meditation, Swamiji instructed us to follow Bhagawan’s method of watching the breath, inhaling the breath up into the head and exhaling it down.
