The origin of the term mystic is the Greek noun mystes, and Mystes has come from the verb myein. In the exceeding Christian use, Mystes or mystic refers to religious practitioner’s bliss.
Most importantly, Yogic mysticism concerns aesthetic sense, and when a practitioner reaches to certain aesthetic level based on aesthetic science is called Yogic Mysticism.
However, the search for Mysticism transfers to the highest excellence of human glory is called spirituality.
Now, the Question Arises, What Is Mysticism?
The Principles of mysticism are inherent in every religion such, as Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Sufism, and other faiths.
Similarly, the spiritual Path of Sufism and Vaisnav (Baul or Kiirtan) is full of mysticism, but we need to know a clear definition of Yogic mysticism.
So below have clear explanations.
What Is Mysticism According to Indian Philosophy?
The Great Indian Philosopher, the Legendary Composer of Prabhat Samgeet, the Spiritual Master Shri P R Sarkar defines as mysticism is the never-ending endeavor to find out the link between the finite and infinite.
He further elaborates that human beings have a desire for limitlessness, and it is one of the human thirst that never feel contained with finite things. In Sanskrit sloka : Nalpe Sukhamasti Bhunaeva Sukhamasti . The meaning of the Sloka is human hunger can’t feel satisfied with something limited.
The Yogic mysticism expresses more subtly, and it moves from subtle to subtler, and subsequently, it reaches the peak point, and it is the excellence of human glory.
When you attain the highest point of Yogic mysticism, you get all your desires fulfilled, and you quench your thirst for limitlessness permanently. Shri Sarkar suggests that the artist perform and nicely express their fine arts lucidly and present it to the world. Everyone can’t do the task of fine arts, but the taste of aesthetic sense is within the capacity of every human being.
The mystic moon, how our life connects with it, and what roles it plays in our lives?
The different position of the moon has a significant role and impact on human physiology and mindset. So the people of India give importance to each day of the moon’s different positions and use it for being healthy, happy, and spiritual ecstasy. Mystic Moon also helps develop yogic mysticism.
The Moon Attraction plays the role of rising and falling liquid substances in seas and all living bodies as low tide and high tide. As a result, during a full moon or dark moon, people develop psychic problems due to rising water levels in the human body which hampers the mindset.
So there is a provision in Indian society to observe fast on the phase of the eleventh-day moon that is Ekadashi and reduce the water level to maintain mental equilibrium and equipoise.
When you look up at the moon in the sky every day for some time on its every phase, your body behaves something enthusiastically, and your level of mysticism rises, and you feel happy in your mind. To clarify, the moonbeam and yogic mysticism have a deep connection.
Yogic Mysticism across the Religious Spectrum
Unification of small I with the Supreme, the finite with Infinite:
We can say: the human physical body is the best for the subtlest science. Animals, plants, another living beings can not perform yogic mysticism. The reason is that they don’t have developed mind.
Yogic mysticism is esoteric, a subtlest science, and you can practice it without observing religious practices; It is the subtlest journey on the path of aesthetic science. Esoteric and Yogic mysticism is the path of great Yogi, Sages, and Saints.
Religion is exoteric science, and it stands on external worships like Temples, Idols, Mosques, and Churches. On the other hand, the Yogic Mysticism is beyond any differential religious spectrum. It is for all human beings. It is an eternal and internal journey regardless of any differences.
The difference between the plant’s mind and the human mind as under developed their brain and mind. They possess a brain.
- Plants and animals receive pleasure when their inborn instincts get encouraged.
- Plants and animals feel pain when their inborn instinct gets discouraged.
It is how the mind or brain of animals and plants function in this world.
But human psychology and psycho-spiritual movement does not stop, and it moves unchecked towards spirituality is the specialty that lies in human existence. So, the human mind excels on the path of Yogic Mysticism with its aesthetic charm.
The people seek their solution to a symbol or line on their palms. So they presume if they have a Mystic Cross, they would be a superhuman or spider man. It is nothing like that. Mystic cross on a palm neither transforms you into a yogic mysticism nor does it mean luck or money. Mystic Cross on your palm shows that you believe in the occult power, or you can be a predictor.
In quest of infinite happiness, a human begins his journey towards infinity and reaches infinity or spirituality. It means the innate urge of human’s moves forward in a mystic style towards the infinite, and he meets the Infinite. Finally, it unifies with Infinity that is Supreme Consciousness; The seeker plunges into the Ocean of Infinite bliss.
The aesthetic charm enables you to unify with Supreme Consciousness; you go beyond the cycle of birth and death. It is what we call yoga or Unification with Supreme Consciousness.
