Different types of Enlightenment

“He who seeks god finds himself, he who seeks the self finds god” -guru mooji

In Ajah Dharma it is understood that there are two types of enlightenment and it is also understood that a true Spiritual master can switch between them at will. for example the Buddha would enjoy unified existance in meditation but would return to dualistic existance to teach people…

If you are Awakened, If you understand your unity, you are a god, a deity, Ajah(God) with attributes, with a mind & body….

Also called dualistic enlightenment. For one knows that one is supreme, and are free from illusion. But still desiring to accomplish things keeps one wanting for a body, and therefore will still want to get another body, and still enjoys dualistic existence as one still has a personality. However through sacred knowledge, one is able to navigate the Bardo or the empty space were awareness goes after death, and may desire to be desireless for the sake of liberation from rebirth, ergo one attains Nirvana.

Often Awakened people will practice a discipline to maintain correct vision. as well as have faith and call upon the dualistic expression of the supreme higher self which is the Great Spirit

Examples

  • Shamans
  • Yogis
  • Bodhisattvas
  • medicine men
  • Taoists
  • Sorcerers
  • some saints
  • Sihks

If you are fully liberated, if you understand your unity & are devoid of desire,you are emptiness, you are God without attributes, you are holy nothingness, and you renounced the mind & body…

This is the state of renouncement, a state of pure bliss were the jiva(the individual) renounces all worldly action. When ones awareness is shifted from the body&mind to the spirit. While resting in the unmovable spirit, one lives in a state of unified bliss, and may even wander off at times because the lack of good and bad feelings.

Unified existence is called Samhadi and is attained through the discipline of meditation

Examples

  • Sannyasis
  • Buddhas, especially Hinayana
  • some Saints
  • Advaita Saints
  • wise hermits

Contemplate these things

“He who seeks god finds himself, he who seeks the self finds god” -guru mooji

“Just remember it’s a grand illusion, and deep inside we’re all the same.” -Styx wisdom

Truth is One

God is everything, that doesnt change because you made a new picture to worship. Never be fooled by people who say they have the only way…

the Buddha said…
84,000 ways to truth,

which one you choose is your own personal decision.
there is only one “way”, and only one religion. That religion is to live in the way. these denominations are only segregation, not regulation…

There is but one God, one energy, one self, one love.

What makes a faith, real devotion, real energy.

Ceremonial Tattooing

“what if you wrote the mantra on your heart” -Bhagavan Das

Tattooing is one of peoples’ oldest art forms, coming somewhere between scratching in the dirt and cave painting. The word tattoo itself comes from the Tahitian word “tatau,” which means “to mark.”. In today’s society, anyone who goes to a tattoo parlor can get anything they want permanently painted on their skin. However, in the ancient past, tattoos were reserved for certain people and often had deep religious meanings. Traditionally, the sons of chiefs would get their first tattoos once they reached puberty as a sign of adulthood. The process of getting the tattoo was highly ceremonial and was seen as a stepping stone in the young man’s path to leadership.

Tattoos in Ajah have very important religious and spiritual contexts. They are patterned specifically around which deity is to be honored and placed accordingly on a part of the body related to the deity being worshiped. Since before the beginning people have been marking themselves with the signs of their dieties. On the outer level of meaning, they are trying to gain the strengths and abilities of the diety. On a more inner and mystical level, diety tattoos mean that the bearer has a close and mysterious relationship with this image of spirit as his tattoos are permanent way to honor the one self. Tribal people believe that the spirit is an exact replica of the human body. This matches many modern belief of the astral body. In both cases, spirit and astral, this allows you to use the proper tattoos as a rite of passage in the spirit world. The people of Borneo, especially the Kayans, believe that not only would their tattoos get them into the proper spirit world, but could also be used as a further qualification, for obtaining certain profitable occupations in the spirit world.

The Ajah knows that the body is the temple for the soul

To decorate and adorn your body in sacred images, and healing mantras is to pay homage to the God (spirit) within the Goddess (Nature)

Ajah can be tattooed for various reasons but they are usually religious reasons, such as talismans, tributes to the gods and or to act as a connection to the divine.

Tattoos are meant to connect the wearer to all of life. Done in Sanskrit, Tibetan, or a script of your chooseing, the patterns are taken from artwork and are based on deities, mantras, yantras/mandalas , and other various symbols. Tribe/Clan markings are another common ritual tattoo. Not only can you recognize your friends quickly,but more importantly, your people are connected even beyond death.

On the other hand if you don’t want tattoos. That’s okay, this is completely unnecessary but equally potent sadhana (spiritual practice.)

PRAYER TO THE GREAT SPIRIT

Om Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the winds
And whose breath gives life to everyone,
Hear me.
I come to you as one of your many children;
I am weak… I am small…I need your wisdom
and your strength.
Let me walk in beauty, and make my eyes ever
behold the red and purple sunsets.
Make my hands respect the things you have made,
and make my ears sharp so I may hear your voice.
Make me wise, so that I may understand what you
have taught my people and
The lessons you have hidden in each leaf and each rock.
I ask for wisdom and strength,
Not to be superior to my brothers, but to be able
to fight my greatest enemy, myself.
Make me ever ready to come before you with
clean hands and a straight eye,
So as life fades away as a fading sunset, so
My spirit may become one with you without shame.
…OM…

PRAYER TO THE FATHER

Om Great Spirit, who art all things;

Human Beings, trees, grass, berries.
Help us, be kind to us.
Let us be happy on earth.
Let us lead our children
To a good life and old age.
These our people; give them good minds
To love one another.
Oh Great Spirit,
Be kind to us
Give these people the favor
To see green trees,
Green grass, flowers, and berries
This next spring;
So we all meet again
Oh Great Spirit,
We ask of you.
Blessed be
