These are the lives of spiritual awakening which contain
spiritual biographies of seeking and finding different mystical
and religious realities.
Relatively speaking, these lives are the success stories in the spiritual
evolution of one individual.
The Bhairava Introduces the Lives of Spiritual Awakening
You have had your exile. You have felt loneliness. You have developed
compassion. Those who have cursed you have voluntarily removed their
curses. You have gone through your most difficult lives, and liberated
the fragments of self that remained bound.
It is time for a change. No, you are not finished with the Jivamala -
you are simply switching to different beads. You have cleansed your lives
of past pain and hatred. Now you must come to know who you have been.
In the past you have had a number of lives where you advanced spiritually.
You have been a yogi, and a tantrika, as well as a
magician, a nun, and a sage. These lives have been hidden from you
until you cleansed your past. It is now time for you to know them.
These lives show the varieties of empowered spiritual
teachings that you have learned in your past lives.
This is why you need to remember these positive lives. There are
still living teachings within them. You must learn of them, and transfer the
teachings from the karmic shells (past personalities)
into your present consciousness.
Then the teachings can be properly used.
Vajradhara Introduces the Life Of Chen Ma
You are not yet finished with the Jivamala practice. The next life for you
to find is the life in which we were halfway bound. You have not
yet encountered it.
The practice is part of the older tradition in which Shaiva Tantra mingled
visionary Mahayana Buddhism. The shamanic elements, such as death
and rebirth, and the community healer role are very minor.
From the Shaiva tantra side came your
link with Mahashiva. From the Mahayana side came your ritual
link with me as Adi-guru or
chief among your other instructors. Each has a special function for you
- that is why you have several.
In the next life that you will explore, you will understand the initiation,
the disruption, and the necessity to complete the work. It is the
only life, I believe, where your teachings have been adopted by a
tradition. Hindu terminology is not always accurate to the other worlds,
and states of consciousness. Your tradition was worship of the Diamond
Light, and the Clear Light, and the Blue Light of Shiva's infinity.
Your tradition mingled these, having one initiation for each.
You were linked with the Vajra Dakini in the Initiation of the Diamond
Light, with myself in the Initiation of the Clear Light, and
with Mahashiva in the Initiation of the Blue Light.
However, as you know, the initiation was disrupted, and your path
needed to be continued in this life.

Your life as a yogi will emerge next. This life is where you learned about
the inner rivers of the Gayatri [mantra], the path of Brahman.
As a yogi, you followed both Shiva bhakti (devotion to Shiva)
and Vedanta. Shiva was not lord
of pain, but rather lord of Truth. You were born of Brahmin background.
This is a self that seeks Truth, and has remained voluntarily - not in a dark
hell, but in a paradise world. He chose to stay until that part
of his soul which had fallen would rise again.
