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.
