Devotee Speaks:

Jai Shree Ram
Jai Maa Jaanki
Jai Hanumanji

First of all, I bow my head to the holy feet of Lord Hanuman.

I have been following this website for almost 2 years now. I have been following all your guidelines which you tell me either in the section Setuu Speaks or through email.

I want to ask you what is the proper or correct way to worship Lord Hanuman i.e. How should I worship Lord Hanuman?

I do Pooja everyday. I chant Hanuman Chalisa once or more everyday and Sunderkand on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Most of the times, I read Sunderkand in one attempt but sometimes I do read it in parts. I also read Bajrang Baan on Tuesdays and Saturdays. I chant Sri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram everyday. I also go to a Hanuman temple on Tuesdays and Saturdays and read Hanuman Chalisa, Sunderkand and Bajrang Baan there in the temple. Sometimes, I chant Lord Ram's name and Goddess Sita's name too in the temple. But sometimes I do skip reading Sunderkand and Bajrang Baan on some Tuesdays and Saturdays due to shortage of time and sometimes may be because I really don't feel like reading. I don't know the reasons behind my not reading Sunderkand and Bajrang Baan for the second reason. May be at those times my mind is captured by Assurahs or what I don't know. Also, while being on a tour or journey or when I am at some other place, I couldn't do my Pooja. Does this make Lord Hanuman angry?

Now, please tell me if my way of worshipping Lord Hanuman is correct or not? Am I worshipping Lord Hanuman in a correct way or not? If not, then, please tell me the correct way of worshipping Lord Hanuman.

Please answer as soon as possible. Waiting anxiously for your reply.

Pranam to Mathangs and Setuu.

Thanks and regards.

Setu Speaks:

Divine Soul,

A glimpse of how Mathangs worship Lord Hanuman is given in chapter 6 and 7. But when you ask them the correct way of worship, they would ask you to follow your family tradition of worship and not copy others' traditions, not even Mathangs'.

Find out your family history. There must have been a Rishi associated with your family in ancient times. Usually your last name may have a hint of your family ancient Guru. Find who He is and what rituals He set for your family. Unfortunately most people have lost their ancient family documents. We cannot help them retrieve their ancestors' documents. We can only suggest you to ponder on one of the chapters of Lord Hanuman's Leelas during the worship. This will compensate for the lost family rituals.

Blessings

Devotee Speaks:

Respected Setuu masters,

what is moksha?
It is said that when a soul gets "dissolved" in MuktiSagar, it does not remain the same soul. When a new soul comes out of the MuktiSagara, it has no relation with the soul which was "dissolved" in it earlier.

That means soul dissolving in Mukti sagara is called moksha

But my question is what happens to the soul which has got moksha?
I understand that it dissolves in mukti sagara

Does it have a feeling that it got moksha I mean will the soul knows it got moksha?
If yes what feeling it will have? The everlasting joy?

If it doesn't have feeling that it got moksha
Then what is the use of getting moksha?

Because it doesn't know it got moksha?

Or Moksha means another separate world which is present down in the mukti sagara?

I didn't understand what moksha exactly means?

So can you please tell me clearly

And who gives the Moksha Lord Shiva or Lord vishnu?
Bcoz you said that Moksha means dissolving in Mukti sagara which is lord vishnu's abode

But when Shiva gives Moksha where will the soul dissolve?

In Shiva loka or vishnu loka?

Waiting for your reply

Setu Speaks:

Divine Soul,

Your this query makes it evidently clear that you are not into spirituality, you are in the illusion of spirituality. Millions of people are currently in the same state as yours. They think that they have got a Guru and they are on the path of spirituality. But actually they are in just another illusion.

Ponder on these lines - "Then what is the use of getting moksha?"

ponder more.

ponder even more.

You want to follow the path of Moksha for some "use"? You wanted to do Sadhana for some "use"?

If you read the chapters of Lord Hanuman's Leelas sincerely, you will know that Moksha is when the "I" no longer remains. If there is no "I" to experience anything, there is no question of experience.

MuktiSagara is not abode of Lord Vishnu. His abode is VishnuLoka which is based over the surface of MuktiSagara.

A soul gives the Moksha to itself. Gods can help a soul sail only up to certain point. After that soul is on its own.

It is all written in the chapters. Please read again. Don't jump to ask questions. It will not lead you anywhere because the efforts done to get an answer matter more than the answer itself.

Blessings

Devotee Speaks:

Dear Setuu Masters,
I have learnt so much from the leelas that have come directly from Lord Hanuman. It has opened my eyes to the way we live life. In fact i have learnt so much about Lord Hanuman Leelas that i am reading all the chapters again just to understand them again.

i have a query if the Setuu Masters, or the Mathangs or Lord Hanuman can help me out,

I was engaged twice and both times was due to family pressure. I never got along with the girls i had gotten engaged to. I was so upset and depressed due to the family pressure, that I always prayed to Lord Shiva and Durga Maa to get me out of this mess that i was in. And all of a sudden both my engagements broke. and i was out of it.

Does God listen to you when you really want something or get out of something like my case, If my marriage has happened i would have been in a deeper mess than i was in.

is it my karma that i have to face marriage obstacles in my life.

Please if you can initiate some kind of Pooja or can ask the Mathangs or Lord Hanuman about my query.

Once again my love to all the setuu Masters who have started this website and posting all of Lord Hnauman Leelas.

Please send my Love too all the Mathangs and Lord Hanuman

Love

Setu Speaks:

Divine Soul,

There are two kind of prayers - (1) Prayer for well being of body-mind (physical world) (2) Prayer for well being of soul
You need to figure out which kind of prayer yours has been and change the course to get your desire fulfilled.

If you believe that being in that 'mess' could have ruined your happiness but could have helped you in evolving spiritually, then certainly your prayer was for well being of your body-mind. Gods fulfilled your desire and saved you from mess but you got deprived of an opportunity to uplift yourself spiritually. Now if you pray for well being of your soul, your marriage issue will be resolved but it may result in a mess which will be helpful for spiritual realization.

If you believe that the mess could have ruined your chances of spiritual upliftment, then certainly your prayer has been for well being of your soul. Now you should change your prayer to well being of your physical world in order to resolve your marriage issue.

Devotee Speaks:

1)Pranam Setuu masters& Mathangs
I have read in your website that if you have strong yearning to see higher truth and meet God you can come to setuu Hanuman bodhi & have penance

I have read one sadhaka experience in Setuu Hanuman bodhi that He know Setuu Hanuman by the program which was conducted by aaj tak channel and he sent an application to you for Sadhana
You asked some questions and selected him
And after completing one year of Sadhana
We are left with 3 options
1) you can still go to outer world
2) if you want to continue Sadhana you can continue your Sadhana in Setuu Hanuman bodhi
3) you can go to outer world and spread Hanuman Leela's as Hanuman devotees

In this Sadhana you are given only two pair of white clothes
And only milk and fruits to eat

My question is when I came to setuu Hanuman bodhi
And after completing 1 year of Sadhana
Can I still come to the outer world? And have a normal life?
Or if I come to setuu Hanuman bodhi there is no chance of returning to outer world and having a normal life?

Setu Speaks:

Divine Soul,

We place no restrictions. But once you complete Sadhana, it is highly unlikely that you would want to lead an ordinary life in mainstream society. Sadhana takes away your limited identity and gives you infinite identity.

However, if during the course of Sadhana, your soul gets Moksha, your body shall be occupied by a pure soul from Vishnuloka which we call as "visitor soul". That soul may decide to go back to mainstream society of Lord Vishnu assigns any task which mandates the soul to go to mainstream society.

Devotee Speaks:

Jai Shree Krishna!

I come from a family of Jains,so I dont really know much related to Hinduism.Once a friend of mine gifted me Bhagawad Gita As It Is,and it changed my entire perception towards life.It was really beautiful and my heart feels so light(I really dont know how to explain this feel) and nice.Also I have visited many places related to Krishna ji like the temple of Meera Bai in Rajasthan.This all felt so wonderful.I read all 19 of your chapters,and really I felt so peaceful.I want to evolve this faith,but I dont know how to.I really want to forget my identity and merge into Almighty,but I dont know how to.Please if you could guide me,it would be really nice.

Thank you.

Setu Speaks:

Divine Soul,

You have written "I" many times in your experience. Who is this "I". Whenever you speak "I', ponder as to what this "I" is. This will lead you to inner journey. Then these chapters will help you to sail through that inner journey. Reading chapters without awareness of "I' won't help. Inner journey has to be started first. First chapter does exactly that. It gives a spark to the seeker. It makes the reader question the existence around. It is not to change your beliefs. It is to take beyond all the beliefs.

Blessings

Devotee Speaks:

"Continued from #517256"

Thank you Setuu for your reply.

I have already learnt from you only that we should not think about our dreams after we wake up. Lord Indra dumps thousands of our complicated desires of our current birth and previous births in our dreams. We should be thankful to God if we see a bad dream because that got purged in Swapanloka instead of Manavloka. But if we see a good dream, then we should renew that very desire so that it may come true in Manavloka.

My motto of asking about my dreams in my previous experience was not about the bad dream or the devil in my dream, rather the motto was to know if Lord Hanuman had really come to my dream that day? If yes, what does it signify? What's the meaning of Lord Hanuman coming to my dream?

Today morning(26th April 2016, Tuesday) again when I got up, it seemed to me that today again I have seen Lord Hanuman in my dream. Although even today I don't remember the dream, but I have a very strong feeling that even today Lord Hanuman came to my dream. Again, I want to make it clear to you that I don't remember anything fully after I got up, but I have a strong feeling rather a very strong feeling that Lord Hanuman came to my dream. What does it mean? Did Lord Hanuman really come to my dream today? If yes, what does it signify? What's the meaning of Lord Hanuman coming to my dream? And if not, then, why do I feel like seeing Lord Hanuman in my dream after getting up? Please answer. Waiting anxiously for your reply.

Please pardon me if my questions seem annoying to you. I have a very limited knowledge and I want to gain more and more of Brahm Gyaan and Aatm Gyaan.

My regards to Setuu and Mathangs.
Thanks.

Jai Shree Ram
Jai Maa Jaanki
Jai Bajrangbali

Setu Speaks:

Divine Soul,

It only means that you have deep desire to meet or see Lord Hanuman but that desire doesn't have matching Karma right now. Therefore, that desire cannot be fulfilled in MaanavLoka. Lord Indra purged that desire in SwapanLoka.

That holds true for dreams. Sometimes, humans experience out-of-the-world things in semi-awake state. That is completely different. In this time and age, the outer world illusion is so powerful that soul doesn't get Lord Hanuman's message when body-mind are active. Then Lord Hanuman does something to deactivate body-mind for some time and push them to semi-awake state to deliver his message to the soul. That message may or may not be deciphered by the body-mind but it gets delivered to the soul nonetheless. Those messages help a soul in following the right path.

The issue of draupadis marriage with five pandu putra is very confusing. I request you to clear this story. Why was this done?? Why did she marry all five of the??

If Lord Hanuman has told about this to Mathangs, it may come up in upcoming chapters and we will publish it as soon as the respective chapters are deciphered.

Devotee Speaks:

I am a Buddhist and I was born in Hindu Brahman family. I am 53 years old. Some time back I saw a dream in which some ladies were singing a Hindi song "ऐसा इक हनुमान रचूँगी,(जिसके) पीतलिया के पाँव रचूँगी " In this what is written in (जिसके) is my own understanding which I have not seen in dreams. Is there any specific reason why I saw this dream or it is just a dream and I shall not pay any attention to it ?
My heartfelt Namaskar to Hanuman ji. Actually I would like to write a book on 8 immortal people and Hanuman ji is one of them. I came across therefor this web link. My deep thank to all Setuu people.
Is there anything Hanuman ji has said on Buddhism or about Buddha ? Please tell me if there is anything regarding this.

Setu Speaks:

Divine Soul,

This dream may be related to your desire of writing about Lord Hanuman in your book. Dreams should not be given much thought. Dreams are like a drainage system. They clean up your desires so that you live a 'normal' life in this world. If this drainage system gets blocked, you may face issues which are labelled as 'psychological diseases'.

In the chapters which have been deciphered till now, there is no direct reference to Buddha. You may expect reference to Buddha in upcoming chapters but not to Buddhism. Buddhism is a label and Buddha was for going beyond all labels.

Devotee Speaks:

Jai Sri Ram,

In a very short period of time I have realised that certain things are not mend for me,I accept it strongly.At certain times when I say to myself "ok I am going to be stable in my work and won't change"just then something goes wrong and I cannot proceed further.

By the grace of my Lord Sri Ram I have improved in some of the areas of my life like losing the 'ego sense'.I was in the teaching field and now I just don't feel like talking,teaching or explaining anything to anyone.I have come to a stage of 'I know nothing"this feeling is getting stronger day by day,every hour every moment.

Most of the time I like to remain silent and be myself.It has been more than a month when I have fallen sick and am not even praying for recovery.Searching a job is a must for me but something in me is not agreeing for it.I lead a simple life and like to do something which touches my soul so working in MNCs or schools are getting tough day by day.

Do you people have ashrams,orphanages,old age homes where I can render my service to be myself and provide solace to broken hearts,wiping away grief stricken tears and bring life to those who have lost hope?

Kindly put this question in front of Lord Hanuman if this is the right thing for me.

Regards

Jai Sri Ram

Setu Speaks:

Divine Soul,

Working in corporate sector demands engagement of your body-mind. You lose your connection with your Chitt and soul.

Working in Ashrams or orphanages helps you find your lost connection with Chitt and soul because there you do not need to engage your body-mind too much.

If you are inclined to work permanently in an orphanage etc, you are basically switching your job to the one you really like to do. When you do what you really like to do from heart, your mind goes through less conflict.

When there is less conflict in mind, are there more chances of spiritual upliftment? The answer is no and yes. Sometimes a seeker has to go through conflicts to recognize the illusion and sometimes a seeker has to cut off from the conflicts so as to spend more time in pondering and meditation. Only a Guru can guide when a seeker needs peace and when he/she needs to go through conflict.

A Guru is guiding you. He is invisible but He is very much near you. Listen to your inner thought and take a plunge accordingly.

If you do not have family responsibilities, you may opt to volunteer with Setuu. For that you need to submit your experience in detail. Write about yourself, your soul relationship with Lord Hanuman and what you have learned/unlearned from each chapter of Lord Hanuman's Leelas published here. Then we will consider your application for Sadhana. You will get to volunteer for Setuu at different stages of Sadhana.

Devotee Speaks:

Before reading your answer I thought i was in spirituality but you said that
"He would think that he is in to spiritually but actually he would be in to an illusion of spirituality created by Maya"

How do I know that iam in spirituality?
And you said there is a huge difference between running away and detaching away

At present iam 20 in a year or two I have to find a job to earn my living
How many years do I depend on my parents?

When I get a job I will in that tension
After wards Marriage
Children
Bringing up the children
old age
Diseases pains
And finally death

I don't want to get in to that trap
At present I don't have much attachments but when I get a job marriage children
I will have my wife, children, there children
Grand sons grand daughter and so many attachments
I don't want that attachments

Bcoz I don't want to waste my precious life
I was worried about leading the life in a normal way
But after reading Setuu Hanuman stories
I realised that I shouldn't waste this precious life

I don't want to get in to that routein human cycle
I want to detach away and come to setuu Hanuman bodhi and have Sadhana

I want to know how do I become eligible for sadhana
When do I become eligible for sadhana?

Setu Speaks:

Divine Soul,

Your current state of evolution is such that you would want to run back to the society within 1 month of obtaining Sanyasi robes. You need at least 6 more years in mainstream society to find yourself and your purpose. Living in mainstream society with unusual and 'far from ordinary' tag is itself a Sadhana. Don't run away from this Sadhana. Face the people who are saying mean things about you. Face the society which is out to judge you. When you do this Sadhana, you will actually realize the illusion. Right now you have only read about it and it has pierced you only upto your intellect. Let it pierce further and reach your soul.Don't worry about marriage and kids. It won't happen in next 6 years. You are safe from that trap as long as you truly intend to become a Sanyasi and Lord Hanuman is there to guide your steps.

Blessings

Devotee Speaks:

RAM
Namaste to Lord Hanuman, to the masters and all the souls involved in the process of bringing this knowledge to us.
Sir, the 'I', the one whom we are advised to look upon as soul, the supreme truth, the one what can't be explained.. Is it something beyond perception through this body mind? Is it why it can only be felt and can't be described? Is it such a focussed 'thing' (if I can call it that) that one can't be descriptive about it? If yes, then through what is it felt, if not through a usual sense organ? OR is it felt through the soul once one has felt the soul? Is it a sub atomic particle which can't be seen but whose effects can be felt indirectly(through the senses ofcourse)

Why doesn't one describe the truth, its said its just there is. If one remembers that 'the truth' is just there is and is a beautiful feeling of bliss, why don't they form any memories of that experience to share? Or it can only be shared by lord Hanuman?.. Im sorry if Im sounding puzzled or confused sir, or If Ive demeaned the truth or any being.. (Even in the precluding sentence, using the word"I" makes one think who and what it is? )

P.s. Namaste to Lord Hanuman, heartfelt gratitude and love from the deepest corner Ive ever felt.. O : ) RAM RAM RAM RAM

Pranam Mathangs & Setuu masters

I'm 20 year old kid and I have failed in b.tech &messed up with my life
iam free for one year and recently on Feb 2016 I came to know about Setuu Hanuman website and its stories
When iam reading the stories I just want to run away and come to srilanka near you and have penance in Setuu Hanuman bodhi

But I have parents brothers and relations
Whenever I want to come near you these relations stop me and and when I read Setuu Hanuman stories I just want to run away to setuu Hanuman bodhi

But when I mingle with my routein activities in my daily life Maya catches me
I know that iam in a illusion

Some force pulls me back and says this is real for example a movie or a relative or a neighbour kid or something else deviates me from spiritual path

How many time I say to me that this world is not real and illusion also
This is just a dream not real also
I get anger and iam attached to sense pleasures
I get addicted to tv, movies, and some nonsense
Maya catches me and I can't come out of this illusion

Just I want to come to srilanka and be in Setuu Hanuman bodhi to get this illusion

But I do not know how to convince my parents and my grand mother (she is next mother to me)

They will always why are you always talking like a monk?
You have failed in b.tech now do a degree
And get some job enjoy your life

if I run away to setuu Hanuman bodhi without informing they will be in grief and search for me

I want to leave all attachments

I don't how to convince them

Please tell me how to convince them and come to you

Please waiting for your answer

Setu Speaks:

Divine Soul,

Illusion or Maya works in very sophisticated ways.

To engage a monkey into illusion, Maya has to conjure up just a banana.

To engage an ordinary human being into illusion, Maya just has to conjure gold. An ordinary human being would run after gold much to the delight of Maya.

If a person is already rich, Maya just have to create some trouble or worry in their life to keep them engaged.

Suppose a person is broke to the extent that he has given up on everything. Maya fails to engage him in illusion because he is done with everything. Then what will Maya do? It will acquire most stealth approach. It will conjure up an idea of 'spirituality' inside the mind of its target. The target will get attached to an illusion called 'spirituality'. He would think that he is into spirituality, but actually he would be into an illusion of spirituality created by Maya.

You are at this stage. Don't play into the hands of Maya. You cannot get supreme knowledge by running away from your current circumstances. There is a huge difference between 'running away' and 'detaching away'. When you run away from something, you get even more attached to it. You are not eligible for Sadhana until you are at peace with your present. And peace doesn't lie in running away from noise. It lies amidst noise. Running away from noise is called 'holiday' or 'a break'. Setuu Hanuman Bodhi is not a destination to take a break. For that you can choose any resort at any hill station.

Devotee Speaks:

Respected sir,
Jai Shree Ram,
I wanted to ask whether during the course of a day, our soul changes it's level , eg. If theres something one wants to do, which is deemed wrong according to sanskara that one has received, and before he does the said thing, he is even reminded of his sanskara, but he anyways does the thing.. The question is whether he ascended to the level of sanskar prithu(or he had the option to) when the thought came and then descended to nishad level once he didnt listen to his inner voice.
In this way, each day do we ascend and descend to various levels depending on how we choose to act??

Also sir,
As imbibed from the knowledge,everything Im experiencing right now in an illusion, including this universe, lets say all of us have our own universes, when we interact with each other, it connects our illusions/universes too and the illusion only deepens.. So is the 'truth' the only thing that spreads uniformly across all universes(billions of them) and makes them one through the truth/the divine?

This knowledge we receive through Hanuman Ji makes us realise, thats because we can feel it through our aware conscious, what about animals and trees sir?.. Animals and trees must be having their own 'trishanku universe' too but they can't realise..OR their perception is different(as Sun to Monkeys) Does that mean animals have no right to attain Moksha?.. They live at deh nishad , does that mean they can't be elevated?.. OR are plants already evolved enough? Cz plants don't seek pleasure or food, they primarily give.. Pls enlighten sir. Jai Shri Ram

P.s. Seeking blessings from Lord Hanuman, Namaste O:) putting all of my faith in him and believing in the Supreme and the Supreme knowledge as the only truth.. Ram Ram Ram

Setu Speaks:

Divine Soul,

If a person is Samskara Prithu in morning and Deha Nishada by evening, he is considered a Deha Nishada for that day. If a person is Deha Nishada for Krishna Paksha of a month and Samskara Prithu for Shukla Paksha of that month, then we will classify him/her as Deha Nishada for that month. In any time period, the lowest category a human being falls to is the category he belongs to for that time period.

If a person chooses to ascend and descend as per convenience, he/she is a Viveka Nishada. Most human beings fall in this category in this time and age. In fact entire course of society is being set today by people who call themselves "Intellectuals". These people are found in TV studios, newsrooms, and entire mainstream media space. They can twist arguments as per their convenience. They are 'Viveka Nishadas'.

When you wrote the line "So is the 'truth' the only thing that spreads uniformly across all universes(billions of them)", you imagined an entity called supreme truth. But that is not truth. That is just another object of illusion. Supreme truth cannot be imagined. Supreme truth doesn't stretch from one point to another. It is just there is. You are astounded by massive size and shape of illusion. You imagine that there are billions of massive universes bound by a single string called truth. When you evolve further, you will realize that one particle of sand also has those 'billions of universes' inside it. You will stop being astounded by the size. Because size is just another illusion. When all these instruments of illusion - size, color, number etc. - cease to astound you, they will drop like superficial layers, and what all will remain would be truth - bare truth.

You are not a human being. You are a soul. There are two things - your soul and outside world. Your body is part of outside world. Imagine a huge bed-sheet on which lot of shapes are printed; shapes of humans, trees, mountains, animals and so on. If you want to touch the bed-sheet, you have to hold it from somewhere. If you hold from an area where human shapes are printed, you identify yourself as human. But actually you are a soul. You can hold the bed-sheet from another place and identify yourself as something else like a tree or animal.

This world is a multidimensional bed-sheet. Your soul has to clutch it from somewhere. If it clutches it in 'human area', it identifies itself as human. There is no 'They'. There is only 'I'. 'I" is the tree, 'I' is the animal. There is nothing but 'I'.

It is good that these questions are arising in your mind. It will be easier for you to absorb what He wants to impart to you in upcoming chapters. Let these questions squirm and shake the ready-made notions in your mind.

Blessings.

Devotee Speaks:

Namaste sir,
Heartfelt gratitude to the almighty, Lord Hanuman for sharing such knowledge and Sethu people for being a medium as perfect as one could best expect.
Have a question to ask sir, On a timeline of this kalpa we are in, where does the soul of Lord Hanuman belong to?, what was it and where was it before Treta Yuga? Was it(the soul) already in form of Lord Hanuman's soul or a blessed soul from Muktisagara?.. Im sorry if I incorrectly placed my words or asked a question I shouldn't have.. Deep regards and a smile to the person reading.
P.s A very humanly desire, Pls if possible , Say Namaste from me to the highest soul that there is that masters might be interacting with, Lord Hanuman.. OM

Setu Speaks:

Divine Soul,

This question had already been processed in Sakshat Hanuman Pooja. Lord Hanuman's soul will go back to Vishnuloka (and NOT in Mukthisagara) after completion of Kaliyuga. Then He will come back in Treta Yuga from Vishnuloka. In another words, His soul was in Vishnuloka before He descended in Tretayuga.

Dear Setuu

Sai Ram
Jai Hanuman

Accept my humble pranamas.

I experienced sweet smell of flowers while reading this chapter. Hmm....but still I am in bewilderment. Like I have a map in hand, legs to walk, eyes to see, all sense in good condition, but still can't reach the destination. Oh!!!!please don't say don't use your outward sense, use your inner eyes. That is my problem, I am not able to open my inner eyes. Everybody waits for spark to motivate themselves in spiritual life, but I think I need FIRE(lol).

Secondly, I have heard from the elderly about kartaviryarjuna as a person who will get back our lost things. There is a shloka which is recited by the person who has lost/ misplaced things and then he gets it back. How is it possible? How is it that our elders Incorporated shloka of a person who has fallen to lower level of existence. When he has not been able to help himself how and why are we??????????

Setu Speaks:

Divine Soul,

A loss of any kind is an opportunity of enlightenment. The shlokas you are talking about don't beget you your lost things. They only help your loss turn into an opportunity. When Kartavirya lost his way in jungle, Rishis gave him the opportunity to elevate himself. They revealed the secret of Rishi community to him. Similarly, you pray to Rishis to turn your loss into an opportunity like they did for Kartavirya.

Accept my humble pranamas.
I read about Urmi's soul flying out of the body and Ram Narayan occupying it to fulfill his desire to be with the family. So my question is " is the popular idea of saying s/he is possessed is also the same way". Here in my place there are practitioners who do "Samohini" -something like...they send say Me to trance and ask me to see in my body for any other souls residing in that body. They also help in seeing the past births. O I got the word it's called past life regression. Back to my question so in case of urmi can we say she was possessed?
2) can more than one soul reside in one body?
3) How are Baba, Mata, Urmi, Urva, Basantha,.........and other mathangs? Convey my pranamas to all of them.
4)Very important question, how to realise and utilise the potential of soul? Hanuman says don't interpret or respond to the senses. I need a little more 'How' explanation on this. (this is not arrogancy. Please consider as ignorance and forgive me if I have asked anything wrong)

Setu Speaks:

Divine Soul,

Understand the core concept of 'flying out of body' from chapter 5 and 'possession' from the local practitioner. Then you are the best person to judge whether they are same or different. From the way you are describing, probably the body of Sulochna in chapter 14 can be called as 'possessed'. Urmi left the body at will, and as per the plan of Lord Hanuman. It cannot be called as 'possessed'.

Yes, more than one soul can reside in one body. One would take the driver's seat and another one would take the backseat. It happens very often in fact. Most people have their driver's seat occupied by a Surrah or an Asurrah and their own soul remains in the backseat. They don't even realize that their body is being driven by a Surrah/Asurrah.

Supreme knowledge is the only way to utilize the potential of soul. Unfortunately, seeking a ready-made answer for 'how' can only get you 'information' not 'supreme knowledge'. The pursuit of 'how' gets you supreme knowledge, not the 'destination'. Collect honey like a bee does. Don't buy a bottle from market.

Accept my humble pranamas. I am reading this probably 2time. The layer of illusion seems to get shaken now. I felt this is a gradual process as the soul has taken many bodies and got bound by karmas and desires. So in that case your 108 hours of arpanam is insufficient. Simply because there are chances for people like me to take time to understand it.
2) I am still not clear whether mathangs are monkeys or humans. If you want to know about me, well than I look like human but am monkey in side.(no intentions to compare with mathangs or other wise monkeys)
3)in bhaghavat gita Lord Krishna says all things in this universe are fragments of me. So is going back to mukthisagar should be the goal or going back to the lord(merge with him)
4)are mukthi and moksha two different things?

Setu Speaks:

Divine Soul,

You may follow your family tradition for Arpanam. We have been instructed to put in place the Mathang tradition which calls for Arpanam within 108 of reading the chapter for first time. It is like breaking coconut. It is considered best if the coconut is broken in first attempt.

Mukthi and Moksha are the same thing. We cannot influence your soul's goal. There are thousands of souls who prefer either Shivaloka or Vishnuloka over Moksha. But as described in chapter 13, Moksha is the ultimate destination for a soul. (Actually it is something where all destinations end. So it cannot be called destination.) To be able to get Moksha, one has to let go off their identity. That is what is difficult for most souls. Suppose you are given two options - (1) A trip to Paris (2) A trip to heaven. The condition is that you cannot carry any luggage. You get excited. Of course heaven is better than Paris. So you would choose heaven. But then the flight attendant tells you that you cannot carry any luggage. You frown at her and say, 'I have no luggage.' and then the flight attendant says, "Your body itself is the luggage'. Then you will probably freak out, turn around and run away as fast as you can.

My humble pranamas to Setuu and Mathangs because of whom I am bless to get association with Lord Hanuman and the Supreme Lord. Thank you.
My question is
1) is Shukra, the asurrah Guru same as the Shukra in the nine planets?
2) if yes then why do we offer him pooja and namaskaras ( how is he eligible for pooja when he is Guru for asurrah)
3) are asurrahs and surrahs inevitable in human life?
4) how to guard against the hijack of these surrahs & asurrah? First of all is it necessary to guard?(as seen in chapters they only seem to put souls in an endless desire and karma)

Setu Speaks:

Divine Soul,

In this age of ignorance, everything has been messed up. All the ancient scriptures have been distorted. Here is a case in point.

There is a Jyothish Acharya. He is doing experiments. He is trying to superimpose data related to positions of planets on the data related to conditions of human life. After crunching all the data, he figures out that there is planet "X" whose positions determine influence of Asurrahs in human life. He concludes that nature of planet "X" is somewhat like that of the Asurrah Guru. For sake of memorizing, he names this planet 'Shukra".

Then he figures out a procedure to minimize the influence of planet 'X" in human life. He calls this procedure "Shukra Pooja".

Centuries later, some fools with addled minds but high authority mess it all up and conclude that this planet itself is the Asurrah Guru.

Supreme knowledge is the only guard against Surrahs/Asurrahs. When you become aware enough to differentiate between your own actions and the actions of Surrahs/Asurrahs, you are guarded. Then you won't mistake their actions as your own. You won't own up their misdeeds.

Blessings
