Marhata Raja Ragho Rao used to have great respect for Baba Sahib. “Whenever he would come to him or request something, his style was that of a mortal submitting something before the gods. Once Maharaja said, to the great spiritual scientist of his times.
“The creatures that are invisible; like angels and jinni, we have reportedly been informed about such things. All the divine books have mentioned one thing or the other about such creatures. The concept of evil spirits is also found in every religion but due to a lack of logical and scientific explanation, people with rational approaches hesitate to acknowledge any proper understanding A this regard. Experiences in this regard are also on an individual level, not on the collective level. If you could throw some light on this issue.”
Whatsoever was stated in reply to the Raja’s query by Baba Tajuddin is evident of the fact that nature whispers its secrets to those who care to listen to such. whisperings. When this question was asked, Tajuddin Baba was reclining against a pillow, and gazing towards the sky. He said, “Well, we are all familiar with the heavenly bodies like stars and there is seldom a night when the sky embedded with stars is not observed by us. It is quite interesting to note that we say that we are witnessing the stars, we are familiar with the celestial bodies but in fact what is being witnessed and which realm of the heavenly bodies is known to us, its explanation is beyond our abilities. Whatsoever that is stated in this regard is not more than conjectures but still, we consider that we know.
Isn’t it strange that when we claim to know something we do not bother to think whether there is any truth in this claim or not?”
“Try to understand what I am saying then tell how limited is man’s knowledge is. Man, in spite of the fact that he bows nothing believes that he knows too much. Forget about the stars and the heavenly bodies, these are distant objects. Let us examine the case of those things that are near to man and remain in his experience frequently. We are acquainted with the rise of day. What the day is? What is the meaning and purpose of the dawning of the day? What is this cycle of days and nights? We know nothing. The only statement made in this regard is that this is the day and then the night follows it. Or vice versa. This is the practice of mankind.”
“Ragho Rao! just consider, can this answer satisfy a serious-minded person? The day and night are not invisible phenomena like angels and jinni. These are one of those manifestations which cannot be denied.
You might be saying that the day and night are believable because they can be witnessed. But don’t forget the function of thinking operative behind the sight. The tongue cannot tell anything about the things seen if thinking is not operative to support it.”
“The relation between thinking and sight is clear enough. The whole process, in fact, is nothing but thinking. Without thinking, sight is merely an inarticulate silhouette. Thinking is the basis and origin of all our experiences. Similar is the case of other senses.
All the senses are deaf, dumb, and blind if thinking is not functional behind them.”
“Thinking gives meanings to the perceiving senses. Ordinarily, it is considered that the senses and the thinking are two different things but actually, it is not so. Man is only a set of thoughts, or to say, he is nothing but a pattern of thinking. Similarly, the angels, jinni, and every creature having any awareness of its surroundings merely is a pattern of thinking.”
“During the course of this discussion, we happened to reach such a point where many secrets of the cosmos would reveal.” He said, and continued, “Listen carefully, many things keep on emerging in our thoughts. These things enter our thoughts from the outside. In fact, man keeps on accepting the influence of the thinking of other creatures just as he is affected by the thinking of other fellow human beings. Nature keeps on feeding the limited thinking from the limitless thinking. If it would not have been so the relationship existing between the individuals of the universe would have perished. It is the divine scheme of mother nature that thinking of one should be affecting the thinking of others.
Man is incarcerated in dust, jinni are silhouettes and the angels are the thoughts confined in the most subtle achromatic light known as Noor. All these three types of thinkings are the universe. If they do not remain in contact with one another and the waves of one’s thinking are not received by the other, the link would naturally be disintegrated and the cosmos would collapse eventually.”
“To prove it, it could be said, that in our thinking we are quite familiar with the silhouettes and other things similar to them and besides that, we are also mentally acquainted with things embodied with Sight and its various forms although our own experiences are associated with the material realm of the dust.
In general terms thinking is denominated as ‘ego’. This ego or thinking pattern is a conglomeration of such conditions that are collectively known as ‘individual’. The stars and the particles are the creation of a similar type. Either it does not occur to us altogether or we are not fully conscious of this fact that the exchange of thoughts, keeps on taking place between stars, planets, particles and all the creatures contribute a lot in our thinking and the waves of our thinking also contribute to their thoughts. In fact, the whole universe is like a family busily exchanging thoughts between its individuals. The jinni and angels are more close to us in their thinking patterns and, therefore, they are more habituated with us.”
Tajuddin Baba Auliya said, still staring at the sky, “we are connected to the galaxy systems and have an established link with them. The thoughts that keep on emerging in our mind reach us from far off distant inhabiting systems through the light. Light waves carry the different pictorial representations of thoughts that are termed fantasy, idea, imagination, and thinking, etc. We consider them to be our own whims or thoughts but in fact, it is not so.
Thinking patterns of all the creatures have a common point and the very common point after collecting all the pictorial representations of thoughts inform us about them. This knowledge depends upon the conscious of the individuals and the species. The pictorial representations are molded into that pattern that is adopted by the conscious according to the values of its ego.
Here it would not be out of place to mention that three types of creatures resemble the most in their behavior and attitude and these have been mentioned as man, angels and jinni in the Holy Quran.
These three species are found in all the galaxial systems of the cosmos. Nature has devised such a system that all these three species have become creative workers. The waves of creation are dispersed in the universe from their minds and when these waves reach at a certain point after covering a specific distance a phenomenon or a manifestation comes into being.”
“As I have already said, thinking, ego and person are one and the same thing. Because of the difference of the words, they may appear to be different things but they are not. Now the question is what this person, ego, or the thinking pattern is? It is that entity that is made up of incalculable forms and figures of moods, conditions, states, feelings, and faculties. Sight, hearing, articulation, love, pity, sacrifice, plight, ambulation etcetera, each of these states has a particular form and figure.
In fact, nature has collected such countless forms and figures in one single capsule in such a manner that despite retaining their individuality these forms have been shaped into one single body. Thus a man has thousands of layers all encased in one single body. Similar is the case of the angels and jinni. This type of formation is specified for them only because they have more layers than any other creature of the universe. In the universe, there are uni-layered as well as multi-layered Species though the numbers of the layers in one species are always the same.
Man is inhabiting inestimable planets and the variety of their types is unimaginably large and the same can be stated about the angels and jinni. Each stratum of man, angel, or that of jinn is an everlasting state. Some of the strata are ostensibly bright and vibrant and some remain latent.
When me movement of a stratum becomes manifested, it enters the conscious whereas when it is latent it remains in the unconscious. Results of a manifested movement are termed as inventions or discoveries by the man but the results of the latent movement do not occur to the conscious though they are more important and more significant in their nature. Here this secret demands profound deliberation that the whole universe is full of manifestations resulting from the latent movement. Now, these manifestations are not the eventual product of the man’s unconscious alone. The latent inner of man could not manage to remain in continuous contact with far-off and remote comers of the cosmos. Man’s own characteristics are responsible for this weakness.
Why has he incarcerated his thinking in dust? This thing is beyond the comprehension of man’s conscious. Any creature that is handicapped because of the ties of time and space cannot meet the requirements of the thinking operative on the cosmic level, therefore, to fill in the cosmic gaps angels and jinni were created. In fact, human thinking alone was not able to produce all those manifestations that were necessary for the completion of the universe.
Cosmos is the name of Spatio-temporal distances formed by the varying intermingled waves of the ego. Time and space, in fact, are two different forms of this variation.
The result of the intermingling of waves and the basis of all the manifestations is ‘dukhan’ about which our knowledge is in its infancy. Here ‘Dukhan’ is not to be taken as smoke. Smoke is visible whereas dukan’ is invisible smoke. Man is the product of positive ‘dukhan’ and jinni is that of the negative ‘dukhan”. Whereas the angel is produced from the essence of both of these.
These three ingredients are the foundations of the visible and invisible realms of the cosmos that would remain devoid of any undulation without them resulting in the non-existence of our conscious and unconscious away from life. A queer relationship exists between these three species. One of the states of the positive ‘dukhan is the sweetness circulating in large quantities in the human blood. The negative state of ‘dukhan’ is known as salinity. Large quantity of salt is found in jinni. Angels are the compounded form of both of these two states. If the positive state is decreased in man and the negative state of ‘dukhan’ i.e. salt is increased then the abilities of jinni are aroused in man and he starts behaving like jinni. If the positive state of ‘dukhan’ i.e. sugar is increased and the negative state of ‘dukhan’ i.e. salt is reduced in jinni then gravity will be produced in it resulting in the production of weight in them and their physical embodiment. This law is equally valid for angels too. If the positive and negative both surge above the appointed level, then because of the positive ‘dukhan’ it can produce the human qualities and because of the negative ‘dukhan’ the qualities of the jinni are produced in angels.
Similarly, if the positive and negative states of ‘dukhan’ are decreased in man from the fixed level, he would start behaving like an angel. The method is quite simple and easy. By reducing the routine intakes of salt and sugar one can be emancipated temporarily from spatiotemporal restrictions like angels. And, by reducing the quantity of sugar only the spatiotemporal restrictions can be avoided like jinni. But for acting upon any of such methods guidance of a spiritual person is extremely necessary.”
The founder of the Qalander Conscious and the grandson of Hazrat Tajuddin Baba Nagpuri, Qalander Baba Auliya has stated an event of the regardful ness of a lion and has given its scientific explanation thereof. He states, Once, grandfather, Tajuddin climbed a hill in the jungle of Waki Sharif (India) with a few others. When someone hinted about the presence of lions in the jungle, he smilingly said that he who fears the lion may go back while he himself intends to rest there for a while and most probably the lion would come but don’t bother and let him stay. Few of us hid in the nearby trees and bushes and most left the scene for their good. It was the summer season, cool breeze and the shade of the foliage were intoxicatingly tranquil, grandfather chose to lie down on the thick grass and closed his eyes.
It wasn’t long before that the fright of the jungle grew intense and a sense of something-will-happen captured my mind. I was waiting intently. This waiting wasn’t for any Sadhr, Yogi, and Saint or for any human being, but it was for a beast, who, at least in my mind, was moving step by step. I was looking towards grandfather, and then, a huge lion appeared which was climbing up the slope of the hill, very slowly, very respectfully. It was advancing towards grandfather, with eyes half-closed, in short, when it reached grandfather it licked the feet of the grandfather who in the meantime was sound asleep. The beast closed his eyes in ecstasy and placed his head on the ground almost touching the feet of grandfather, who was still sleeping unaware of the presence of the beast. Lion, after gathering his courage, started licking the feet of his grandfather. This woke up grandfather, he patted the beast on the head and said “You came, I am pleased to see you healthy, well, and now go!”The lion wagged its tail in gratefulness and took its leave.
I thought over this incident, again and again, nobody had ever witnessed the lion coming to grandfather before. Therefore, we have to admit that the lion and grandfather, both were mentally acquainted with each other.
There is the only one way for this acquaintance; the waves of Ego (the thought waves) which interacted between grandfather and the lion, were the source of their acquaintance and meeting. This is how intuition takes place in the percipients and cognizers but this incident is evident that in animals too, intuition takes place. In this regard, man and other creatures are equally alike.
This law should be remembered with great consideration that most of the thoughts coming to our minds are not related to our affairs. They belong to the nearby and far away creatures which exist somewhere in the universe. The concepts belonging to those creatures come to us through waves and when we try to establish a link between these thoughts with our life, we simply fail. Few things are worth considering regarding the waves of Ego. According to scientists, light is the only thing that has the maximum velocity but it is not that swift and nimble that it could eliminate the distances of Time and Space. But the Waves of the Ego (Thoughts) are present everywhere in the Boundlessness simultaneously gripping the distances of Time and Space in their clutches. In other words, Time and Space distances do not exist for these waves, the distance which the light waves have to cover up, the existence of that distance is not even acknowledged by these waves.
Human beings are conversant with the act of articulation from the very beginning. In talking, the sound waves with predetermined meanings convey the information to the listeners. This method is a duplication of that communication style that takes place between the waves of Ego.
It is a common observation that a dumb person conveys everything with a slight movement of his lips and those who are versed with lip-reading understand everything which he desires to convey. This too is a replica of the same methods. Animals convey their feelings to their fellows without producing any sound. In this case, too, the waves of Ego are operative. Trees also converse and communicate with one another regardless of distance existing between them. This conversation not only takes place amongst the nearby trees, but the trees at far-off distances also take part in it. The same law is valid for the minerals as well. Stones, pebbles, and dust particles also negotiate with one another exactly in the same style.
Many events of prophets and people with spiritual powers are evident that only one and the same Unconscious is actively functioning in the whole universe. Every wave of the Seen and the Unseen understands the meanings of the other thought, even if they are located at the opposite poles of the universe.
Understanding the significance and meaningfulness of the Seen and the Unseen is the life essence of the universe. We, with a considered contemplation about this life essence, which is our own life essence as well, can explore the conditions and situations of other planets besides that of our own planet. We can discover the thoughts of men and animals, can acquaint ourselves with the activities of angels and jinni, and know the internal stimuli of plants and minerals.
Continuous concentration transmutes the mind into Cosmic Unconscious and the artificial self-adopted shell of our personality is emancipated from the clutches of Ego and begins to observe and understand anything required and preserves it in the conscious.
A green and tender branch of a tree tends to bend easily. We can make use of its elasticity whereas an attempt to bend a dry hardwood seldom yields any results; however, it is an advantageous flow of nature and according to the law of Allah.
“Those who strive for Allah, verily Allah open His ways to them.” Taking advantage of this law you can also learn telepathy after starting the suggested exercises.
