Tyaga the Road of Fire - 05



Type of Spiritual Experience


Tyaga is one of the few techniques on this website that includes or needs the intervention of a Guru  for the simple reason that this technique could only have been devised and executed by a guru.  It is thus of double interest because it shows how gurus help their disciples and also something of the role of a guru on the spiritual path.

A guru act like a personal trainer, devising a specific series of steps, exercises and 'events' suited to the capabilities, evolution and character of the person concerned.  For this reason there is no real 'method' that a guru follows, every method is different, - tailor made - however, I think it helps to show how a guru can ‘help’, thus in order to do so I have used an example programme that was devised for a lady called Irina Tweedie  . 

In order to see the progression you use Irina Tweedie as the source and then follow the observations in order and chart her progress.  Irina Tweedie’s master was Bhai Sahib.  I have also included a description of him

A description of the experience

The Chasm of Fire – Irina Tweedie

The mind is not working.  Difficulty in thinking the most elementary things; periodically blankness, complete emptiness.

Events from the past keep coming into my consciousness – stupidities, blunders, things so far away, when I was a schoolgirl.  Humiliating situations, when I was hurt and had no sense of proportion and suffered from it.

I regretted all those faults and blunders and I felt worthless.
