Shivabalayogi Sri Lanka


Bhava Samadhi: Acting

“There are certain true trances, but there are certain people who are not in trance.  You watch their behavior and from that you will come to know whether it is true or not.”

“You can tell the difference between people who are in trance and those who are not.  You can easily see a glow and brightness in the faces of those who are really in bhava samadhi.  Those who are just acting, their faces become dark.  If you just look at the person you will come to know whether it is true trance or whether it is a show.”

“Once I give bhava, I don’t take it back.  I don’t take that shakti that has been given to you.  It may lie dormant, but it will come up as your sadhana improves.”
