Sadashiva dwelled under the shade of the Banyan tree ages ago with AdiShakti, Nandi and the Saptarishis. This Banyan tree still exists in Ramnagara on the outskirts of Bengaluru. At the same time, Sadashiva was delivering the Agama to all of them, Sri Ramachandra happened to be in search of Sita, his wife. The Saptarishis brought him to Sadashiva. Unable to miss the chance of sitting with Sadashiva himself, Sri Rama stayed there, soaking in the most luscious presence there ever was. Upon returning from Lanka and reclaiming his throne which Bharat, his brother, had faithfully
kept for him, Sri Ram took his family and followers to the places he had traveled. He reminisced about the time he spent under this wonderful tree with Shiva and Shakti, Ganesha and Subramanya as Sadashiva revealed the Agama to Sri Rama.
Sri Rama delivered everything he witnessed to Hanuman transcribed at that time is what is known as the Muktikopaniṣad, which also captures the list of all 108 Upaniṣads. This is why the Banyan Tree in Bengaluru Adheenam, in Ramnagara, is worshipped as a deity. This tree carries the bio-memory of Sadashiva and continues to radiate it today.
Technique to Open the Third Eye
- Be in an ambience of restful awareness. A vatavarana (atmosphere) of restful awareness is necessary for the Third Eye to flower. Whenever a will is created, it cannot be retained if there is stress in the Third Eye region. Will grows and expands into will persistence in the space of restful awareness. Consciously practice for next 48 hours to keep the forehead area in restful awareness.
- Pick up a leaf which is dropped by the sacred Banyan tree at the Bengaluru Adheenam as a prasadam or blessing of Sadashiva. Remember not to pluck the leaf from the tree.
- Lie down and place the Banyan leaf prasadam on your forehead. Decide to be in restful awareness. Experience a cool breeze in the Third Eye region, where will persistence can become more and more into a matured reality.
- If you fall asleep, that is okay. Unlike a regular sleep, it will be the space of restful awareness.
