……..So now, if you have to develop the discretion, you have to learn, you have to understand. It doesn’t come automatically. But with children who are born Realized, their Hamsa is so developed that they know it – what is right, what is wrong. Because their Hamsa is so much trained that way, they don’t have to use much understanding. But those who are now growing up, have become now Sahaja Yogis* have to know through their own experiences, their Hamsa. It’s a filter, also. But for a child, he knows what is right, what is wrong, because his Hamsa is developed. In India , when the child is born he’s massaged nicely. Oiling is the best way to have a good Hamsa. Oil his hair, oil his body, put some drops in the nose, everything. They try in the ear, in the nose and that’s how they build up.
So what I have to say that physically you should have pure Hamsa Chakra by using ghee and all that, and mentally you should use it by learning things, in experience – what to do, how to do it, how to work it out, how to establish. That is how Hamsa Chakra grows and makes you discrete. That’s why tradition is very important. Tradition gives you the growth of the Hamsa Chakra and then you go on discarding whatever is wrong out of that tradition. Then again, you keep whatever is good. Give it to your children, to your children, to your children. So the discretion comes to a person who is traditionally built up better than a person who has no traditions…….
