The ‘Jnana Paal’- Enlightening Milk

The ‘Jnana Paal’- Enlightening Milk

Thiru Jnanasambandar Tastes Devi’s Breast Milk

– “The Jnana Paal, Enlightening Milk”

When Jnanasambandar was three years old, his parents took him to Lord Shiva’s temple at Sirkazhi. At the holy temple tank, Lord Shiva and his consort Parvati Devi – Sundareshwara and Meenakshi gave their darshan (divine vision) to Him. The Cosmic Mother Devi fed him with her enlightening milk. His father saw drops of milk on the child’s mouth and asked who had fed him, whereupon the boy pointed to the sky and responded with the song ‘Todudaya Seviyan’, emitting the very the first verses of the “Tevaram“.

Each Enlightened Master or Incarnation radiates the energy of enlightenment in their own unique expressions. Thiru Jnanasambandar, being a great Master, his bio-memory itself was never disconnected from the Cosmic Consciousness. That is why within 3 years he remembered his original state.

Jnanasambandar’s body was established in enlightenment. When he started feeling that the individual identity may start happening in him, he felt deeply disturbed. He wanted to remain in cosmic consciousness. He strongly cried out and expressed his suffocation, uncomfortable feeling towards the cosmos. The moment he expressed his suffocation, the cosmos has to respond, the cosmos has to appear, the cosmos expresses itself. That is why the Cosmic Mother, Prakriti, nature opened up herself to Thiru Jnanasambandar and poured her essence into him. Giving breast milk is a representation of this ultimate truth.

That is the story of the famous ‘enlightenment milk’ called as Jnanapaal. When cosmos poured her essence into Thiru Jnanasambandar, he became enlightened. Overflowing with gratitude in deep samadhi, extraordinary sacred sentiments started expressing itself.

There is no philosophy in Jnanansambandar’s expression. Devotion and Gratitude is the center philosophy of Shyamala Peetha Sarvajnapeetham

293rd Gurumaha sannidhanam delivered a satsang on Thirugnanasambandar reviving the vedic tradition – “Veda Neri” in the Introduction to philosophy of Shyamala Peetha Sarvajnapeetham on 11May2012, and stated about the jnana paal. 

Thiru Gnana Sambandar  whose bio memory was never disconnected from cosmos, that is why cosmic mother gave the cosmic essence  to him as enlightenment. Cosmic Mother offered herself  and passed her  essence  into Thiru Gnana Sambandar  at 3 years . 3 years is the  time  child reach  Pratyhatmaka  Chaitanya  Jagruthy-Individual  Identity.

Please understand , I am giving  the mystical Akashik Readings, original happenings as it is. At the age of 3 Thiru Gnana Sambandar started individual consciousness happening , he felt disturbed , cried  and expressed disturbed feeling towards cosmos. His bio memory  was  connected to cosmos, hence cosmos had to express and expressed  and  blessed Thiru Gnana Sambandar and made him experience .Cosmic mother  appears and pours the essence -that is the enlightening milk -Jnana Paal.

When cosmos poured ,He became enlightened.. In that Saamdhi  extraordinary intelligence  started expressing ,it is not intelligence expressed, it is sacred sentiments- Devotion and Gratitude, the basis of Shyamala Peetha Sarvajnapeetham


The Enlightening Milk

The real Truth of his whole happening is explained by 293rd Guru Maha Sannidhanam Srila Sri Paramahamsa Nithyananda, as it is…

Thiru Jnanasambandar’s greatness has to be understood. His bio-memory itself was never disconnected from the cosmic consciousness; that is why, within three years, he just remembered his original state and the cosmic mother; Nature; Prakrithi offered her own essence, which is enlightenment into Jnanasambandar.

That is what we visually portray; Devi appeared and offered her own breast milk, it is a visual presentation of the ultimate truth; the cosmic mother prakrithi, nature, opened up herself, poured her essence into Thiru Jnanasambandar.

3 years is the time usually a child feels the individual identity; ‘pratyaghatma chaitanya jagrutha’. Brain becomes capable of experiencing individual identity.

At the age of 3, when Jnanasambandar has started feeling that individual identity may start happening in him, he felt deeply disturbed, He wants to remain in cosmic consciousness. So he strongly cried, expressed his deep suffocation, uncomfortable, disturbed feeling towards the cosmos. His body was established, his bio-memory was established in enlightenment, that is why, the moment he expressed his suffocation, cosmos had to respond; cosmos had to appear; cosmos had to express itself.

Immediately the cosmos expressed itself to bless Thiru Jnanasambandar; to make Him experience the ultimate. The Cosmic mother, prakrithi, Devi appears and pours her own essence into him, which is enlightenment.

That is the story of ‘enlightenment milk’; ‘enlightening milk’ ‘Jnana paal’. When cosmos poured her essence into Thiru Jnanasambandar, he became enlightened and in the gratitude and ecstasy, Samadhi, the extraordinary sacred sentiments started expressing from him.
