Many of our scriptures refer to the tenth door and to the mysticism attached to it.
Ancient Hatha Yoga refers to this ‘door’ as the brahmrandhra, moksadvara or mahapatha. While the Guru Granth Sahib refers to it as the ‘Dasam Dwar‘.
So what is the essence of this ‘door’? How can we open it? Are there any precautions to be taken?
The human body has nine physical openings i.e eyes, ears, nostrils, mouth, anus, and urethra. These are essential for the body to live and thrive.
The Tenth door is an ethereal opening on top of the head. It isn’t material or tangible. Rather a doorway for energy flow.
The scriptures say that ‘this door is normally closed’.
In other words, through this opening, infinite energies of the Universe, benevolent as well as malevolent can access us or even enter us. It is our spiritual gate of protection.
The scriptures also say that ‘when a person, through mind willed practices opens this door, great dangers come to him. Hence, this door be opened by the one and only Supreme Super-consciousness and none else.”
Let me elucidate.
The world outside our body has infinite malevolent energies and beings. Ghosts, poltergeists, black tantra ‘gurus’, black magic practitioners, unredeemed spirits and so on. Our Aura is our first layer of protection against all of these. Our tenth door is also a very strong protection. It securely prevents any other energy from accessing or using us. Hence, this ‘opening’ remains closed during normal life.
An unsecured opening of this gate occurs when we try out practices like medium-ship, unchartered healing, forced healing, dark magic or yogic techniques which force this door open. At such times we render ourselves vulnerable to everything. Imagine if we left the main gate of our castle open. Friends and foes could enter at will. People can get spirit possession and much worse stuff.
Should we then leave the tenth door closed always?
Not really. Because for any spiritual progress and for self realisation, this door must be opened. It is only then that the sub conscious connects to the Universal Super-consciousness in totality.
It is thus imperative that the door must open, but with perfect protection. Since this experience is something beyond conscious control or command, the only way is to surrender to the superconsciousness within and allow it to control it. When the Supreme oneness is handed over control, nothing untoward can really happen. On the other hand great miracles happen in life.
The Prophets of all religions had this door open and thus experienced the fourth state of consciousness. People would heal by just speaking to them, by coming in contact with them, by following them.
Those who practice meditations in total surrender do have thus experience as well as protection.
Complete surrender is the key to this magical door.
May all who read be blessed.
