Tyaga the Road of Fire - 01
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
With my head full of lovely Indian music I went to bed. It was then at this moment, just when I stretched out comfortably, pulling the blankets over me, that to my surprise I felt a vibration, a sound in the lower part of my abdomen. I sat up in surprise. No I was not mistaken; it was a sound and I listened to it, never felt anything like it before... it sounded like a soft hiss, and felt like a gentle tickling as if of butterfly wings; a kind of flutter, or rather a spinning sound like of a wheel. Very strange. A suspicion flashed through my mind that perhaps it was leading to some kind of trouble, but what?
