The Ocean of Maya

The ocean of Maya is extraordinarily deep and unfathomable; it could be swum in the event an ant could swim across the vast ocean! But it is possible to overcome Maya (ILLUSION) with 'THE GINAN,' with deep love and devotion to the 'NOOR-EN-ALLAH NOOR HAZER IMAM. Mowla Ali Hazer Imam -alone can shower his divine blessings, divine grace, by which the incredibly powerful Maya can be combated.
WHAT IS MAYA? AND HOW IS IT POSSIBLE TO SWIM THE OCEAN OF MAYA?

Shri Krishna, the eighth incarnation of Shri Vishnu (Mowla Murtaza Ali) imparted 'BRAHM-GINAN'- an advanced spiritual knowledge to his momin, ARJUN, one of the PANDWA brothers.

Shri Krishna said, 'O Arjun, today I want to give you a gift of real diamonds. You will experience yourself the value of these most precious diamonds. These diamonds are imperishable and by 'THE GINAN' you shall achieve my SHANAKHAT: you shall achieve my true recognition. After achieving my true recognition, you will not have to listen to others since you will find it insignificant.

'Once you have grasped 'GINAN,' your intelligence (BUDHI) shall disappear. Thereafter, you will not waste your precious time in arguments - you will not go for reasoning, since your experience shall be much advanced. This is a stage higher than BUDHI (INTELLIGENCE). This is a place where BUDHI cannot enter and cannot reach. All your thoughts of reasoning shall vanish, power of imagination shall weaken, and your thoughts shall be retarded. The state of 'GINAN' is supreme and so great.

'O Arjun, it is the belief today that the science of hypocrisy is knowledge, but such conceptions are nothing but ignorance - AVIDHYA, AGHNANTA. Out of thousands, hardly one has a craving for the 'GINAN' and therefore there are a very small number on this earth who have been able to attain my SHANAKHAT - A RECOGNITION OF THE JYOT 'NOOR-EN-ALLAH-NOOR.' My recognition, the love and devotion to my 'NOOR' (NOORANI JYOT) is not a common achievement of life. It is a very rare-most high and a unique achievement.

'O Arjun, now listen, the elements of this material world which act by their own nature consist Maya. The Maya functions in eight matters, i.e. LIGHT, SPACE, EARTH, ATMOSPHERE, MIND, INTELLIGENCE, and EGO. TRI-LOK (i.e. SWARGLOK-HEAVEN, MRATYULOK- OUR MORTAL WORLD, and PATALLOK - THE VAST CREATION UNDERNEATH THE EARTH) , SAAT JAMIN (SEVEN GREAT UNIVERSES), SAAT ASMAN (SEVEN HEAVENS), and THE MATERIAL LIFE all are created with the MAYA elements - the eight matters.

'Spontaneously, by their own natural tendency these elements co-ordinate with the lifeless and consequently life begins. Through life, 'GINAN' is maintained. Joy, anxiety, intelligence (of the mind), and Ego, as well, exist by this procedure. The MAAN, JIV, or SUPERMIND is dominant. The material life continues for a considerable period but eventually it returns to its nature. It returns to its Origin: to finally become FANNAH in my swarup, within me. Therefore, O Arjun, I AM THE CAUSE OF THE CREATION, I AM THE CAUSE OF THE EXISTENCES OF THE UNIVERSES, AND I AM AS WELL THE CAUSE OF DESTRUCTION OF THE EXISTING BILLIONS OF UNIVERSES.

'O Arjun, this material world is nothing but a great MIRAGE. In appearance it looks real, but in fact, in reality, it is unreal because it is a dream of JIV-MAAN or mind. Scrutinize this mortal material world with your 'GINAN DRASTI' (TRUE AND PURIFIED SPIRITUAL VISION) and you shall realize that the root of this great mirage is the sun. When this material world is visualized without my divine presence, it results in sheer unreality. It came into existence by its own nature and eventually all such creation, including nature returns to me and becomes FANNAH in my JYOT - 'NOORAN' SWARUP.

'O ARJUN, although this transitory life of the mortal world is a dream of JIV, MAAN, or MIND, you still have to do KARMA, i.e. fulfill your obligations and you have to work hard and hard for your material existence, AT THE SAME TIME ACHIEVE SPIRITUAL GAINS THROUGH 'GINAN.' Through GINAN DRASTI of my divine presence - everywhere and at all times - you shall have a victory: through 'GINAN' and 'GINAN DRASTI,' by your purified spiritual vision, you shall understand and experience that what is visible in this world is bound to become FANNAH with me - In my divine SWARUP, THE 'JYOT,' THE 'NOOR' by which the creation exists.

'O Arjun, with all grace and mercy, I give you a 'GINAN DRASTI' - 'DIVYA CHAKSHU,' a spiritual vision which is the most unusual and astonishing gift of my divine house. But rememeber Arjun, you are to do KARMA unfailingly; you should work hard for your material life while simultaneously making good progress and achievements for your spiritual life. By this you shall achieve MOKSHA, SALVATION: Do not worry - surrender absolutely to me! I shall save you from the great unfathomable ocean of Maya and not let you drown.

'O Arjun, Bhagats (devotees, my momins) perform BHAKTI or BANDAGI, I MYSELF AM BHAKTI - BHAKTI is my 'NOORANI' SWARUP. I am the root of intelligence (AKL), I AM 'AKL-E-QUL,' THE ORIGIN OF INTELLIGENCE, TH EWORLD DERIVES AKL FROM MY DIVINE POWER.'

Shri Krishna was the Eighth Incarnation of Shri Vishnu, and in Shri Vishnu was the divine 'NOOR' of Mowla Murtaza Ali. It is very interesting to read that Mowla Murtaza Ali in his 'KHUDAWANDI SHAN' has also said and repeated Divine Expressions similar to the ones above by the 'NOOR,' During the Eighth Avtar of Shri Krishna.

O momins, say HOLY SALWAT: ALLAHUMA SALI ALLAH MUHAMMADAN WA AALE MUHAMMAD. 'QUD'RAT' of MOWLA MURTAZA ALI is so unique!!! Even Pirs, Paygambers, Walis and Olias have prayed, prayed, and prayed to Mowla Ali for his mercy, grace, and bounties that they may know his 'QUD'RAT.'

'O Arjun, I give light and life to the world. The moon and sun derive ROSHANI from my 'NOOR.' When I am Incarnate in human body, the unknowledgeable people run away from me, they are ignorant of my 'TEJ.' They know not I am the RUGVED, SAMWED, and JUJARVED.

' O Arjun, I have told you about the five virtues of life, now I am telling you even the vices have been created from my power. That means, that the existence of vices is due to my power. Though they are from me, I am not involved in them. Just as clouds are in space but space does not exist in the clouds, there is water in the clouds but no clouds in the water; I am not involved in evil. Take also the example of the force of water; light is created by the force of water but there does not exist water in the light; look at smoke, smoke is created from fire but there is no fire in the smoke. Similarly all vices are the product of my power, yet I am not with the vices.

'O Arjun, Satva (essence), Rajas (passion) and Tamas (Anger), all three are the products derived and originated from my divine power. Maya has been created of these substances, yet Maya's reflection in the form of a screen stands against me, against my aspect. The SWARUP JIV (MISLED MIND) cannot recognize me. Jiv belongs to me since it is created by my light yet the misled mind does not recognize me. The people who are misled by Maya cannot recognize me, cannot recognize my Swarup, and they do not come into union with me. O Arjun you know that a pearl is a product of water, yet the pearl does not dilute or mix with water. In the same way, because of Maya, JIV (Misled Mind) does not get into Union with my 'JYOT,' 'LIGHT' or the divine 'NOOR.' It is MAYA that makes JIV spiritually blind by its own 'I' ism.

'O Arjun, through spiritual love, devotion and sincerity, my BHAKT momins by my DIVINE GRACE can easily combat the POWERFUL MAYA. My BHAKT momin does not have to worry much of Maya's influence because my BHAKT momin surrenders to me absolutely. He surrenders all his material possessions, he surrenders himself, he has an absolute faith in me, relies on me, depends on me and I grace upon him my 'SHARANAGAT' meaning my 'NOORANI CHHATRA.' My momins are therefore absolutely protected under my divine 'NOORANI' shelter. When Drupadi was dishonored in the open court of Duryodhan, she called upon me. She called me several times, but while calling she was also trying protect herself. After some time, when the despair was hard to bear, she let go her hands and called on me - utterly depending on me. That very moment I went to her rescue.

' O Arjun, do not be worried, surrender yourself to me, I will help you to get beyond all sins. I will save you from the terrific influence of Maya. I will be the one to ferry your tiny craft across safely. Do not be unhappy. How wonderful! One has just to surrender himself to me. O Arjun, I will take care of the rest. Do not be unhappy. Think of me. Be just my devotee. Take your thoughts to me. Remember me every moment. Remember me day and night. Do not worry. Just these things you have to do and you will reach me and only me. I tell you this most solemnly, I promise this to you, you will reach me, and let me assure you, you are dear to me.

'Can this be possible Arjun! Can the Lord, who is said to be so far away, come to you and say: JUST THINK OF ME AND ONLY ME AND I ASSURE YOU I WILL TAKE YOU IN MY JYOT - THE 'NOOR,' YOU ARE DEAR TO ME. In my hundreds of Holy Firmans, the divine messages are so hopeful and so reassuring. All that one is asked to do is to THINK OF ME ALL THE TIME. O Arjun, Maya cannot even dare harass my momins. When he stands at the shore of great ocean of Maya, Lo! THE POWERFUL MAYA, THE OCEAN OF MAYA INSTANTLY DISAPPEARS. My momin can easily come to me and reach my 'JYOT,' 'THE DIVINE NOOR.'

My momin discards his 'I' ism. He does so much good for others but thinks all is done by me, because his 'I' ism is vanquished from the mind. His mind is never misled by Maya - such is the spiritual grade of my BHAGAT MOMIN. He achieves all - sheerly by my divine grace.

'ARJUN, remember that all except my momins become arrogant. Those who deceive themselves by their 'HU (N)-PAD' or arrogance, lower themselves - their own spiritual dignity. They forget and deface their own divine beauty of the ATMA, SOUL, which eventually gets sunk in the ocean of Maya. They become victims of terrible vices. They are the JALCHAR PRANIS, animals and creatures of the Ocean of Maya and as a result they feel perpetually unhappy in the mind, heart and soul. Finally they get themselves entangled in the strong SHACKLES OF BIRTHS AND REBIRTHS.

“O Arjun, did you know that there are four types of people who remember me through prayers. One group say prayers so that I should eliminate their difficulties. No doubt one should rely on me and should come to me, but these are people who pray and remember me only when they are in trouble. Once I have removed their difficulty they forget me at once. The second group are those who remember me and pray for worldy honour and material dignity. Their prayers are for the sake of this material life and when they achieve their desires they become arrogant of their material achievements, consequently they forget me soon. The third group say prayers for sake of formality, they say prayers out of the threat of being called unpious in society. They say prayers regularly, but in the event something goes wrong in their lives, and if any hardships are faced – which may be due to wrong actions in the past lives – they blame their religion. Such unstable minded people cannot achieve as much as they should from religion.

“The fourth group is that of the grade of “PADAMANI.” These momins constantly remain under MY DIVINE GRACE. They are TRUE ‘GINANI’ momins. They remember me by heart, by love, and devotion under all –favourable or adverse – circumstances. They love me much and I love them immensely. They are in my heart day and night, and I am in their hearts forever. They are near to me and so dear to me that I am with them always, EVERYWHERE! Wherever they are I am with them. Such momins become “ONE” with my “NOOR” – they become “ONE” with my light, the “NOOR.” Their spiritual dignity as ‘MOMIN’ is never vanquished; through the light of Ginan I make my seat in their hearts and in their souls. I am immensely happy with my momins. These momins, although they are in DEH DHARI, physical aspects, they are never different from me, O Arjun, they are highly dignified spiritually.
