Divine Ignorance, Conductivity,
and the Conscious Process
Divine Ignorance =
(1) Surrender as the body in the
Infinite Life-Field and
(2) abiding as Transcendental
Consciousness prior to mind (or knowledge), body (or
experience), and self (or existence defined in separation
from Radiant Transcendental Being).
Surrender as the body is a matter of
equanimity in the Life Field, or the art and science of
conductivity. It is a bodily practice (based on Ignorance,
or the transcendence of the “I” by recognizing it to be the
body). It is a matter of moment to moment feeling,
relaxation, and breathing in – the “natural state of bodily
Ignorance. Feeling-surrender is constantly maintained as
heartfelt inherence in the infinite Life-Field, or Radiation
from the heart in all directions to Infinity. Relaxation is
constantly maintained as bodily surrender from the bodily
base toward the crown and beyond. And breathing is
constantly surrendered into the Life-Principle, directing
the Life Current to and from the vital center, circulating
the Current as a Flow in the total body. All three aspects
of the process are to be maintained simultaneously. In this
manner a great Bliss is released from the body-mind, and
attention is granted more and more freedom to enter into the
Abiding as Transcendental
Consciousness prior to mind, body, and self is a matter of
undistracted or one-pointed devotion of attention to the

The Yoga of Death in God,A Discourse
Given by Sri Da Avabhasa on February 13, 1993 (see link
DEVOTEE: Sri Gurudev, You have
talked a great deal tonight about the simplicity and
relaxation of the process of self-understanding. I am
understanding more that it is all about the
self-contraction. I am feeling it more.
SRI DA AVABHASA: You are being it
DEVOTEE: Yes, I am being it more,
and I am feeling like me.
SRI DA AVABHASA: Yes, and you must
transcend that. That is what I am talking about.
DEVOTEE: In that process of Finding
You, everything that keeps coming up is suspect.
SRI DA AVABHASA: What is coming
DEVOTEE: Even the feeling that I am
SRI DA AVABHASA: Of course you are
dying. Everybody is dying. You must commit yourself to
dying. You must invest yourself in dying. That is the Divine
Yoga. Embrace this pressure, this imposition. Be willing to
die. Be willing to do the thing that you fear, the thing
that you keep putting forward to the end of time, the end of
your life. Do it now.
Start doing some dying here, then.
Start giving yourself up if you have any self-understanding
at all, and receive Me down behind your tongue here. You
have to gulp Me down and give way to Me. So what? That is
DEVOTEE: In the process of gulping
and receiving You, this pressure does not go
SRI DA AVABHASA: No, you must give
yourself to My Divine Invasion. Accept It. Accept that that
is life, that is the reason for existence, that is the law
of existence, that is the Perfect State you are Given, and
allow It completely, more and more, with all your stress,
with murders in your heart, in your gut, just

anger, upset, pursuit, seeking. So what? You have to make a
life out of this acceptance, this embrace. Eat It. Eat the
You must let your fear of death go.
You must accept the imposition of What Is here that you have
been refusing all your life, and take Me on. The dying
business is a great Yoga, all over your heart, opened,
relaxed, because you gave it up. Give it up, relax down,
You are all in the same boat here in
these independent bodies. Death is coming. Do it, then. Do
it now. Embrace What is Imposing Itself on you. Do not wait
until the end of life. Do it now. There I am—swallow Me
down. Take a deep breath. Be done with it. It has to happen.
Do not wait for the end of life.
That is “conductivity”. Give Me your
attention. Let it go, down to the frogs, the toads. Be at
peace. Give up your struggle. Be at peace here and now. All
your obstructions, your impulses, and your
reactivity—let them go now. Be at peace, free in your
mind, free in your feelings, free in your body, free in your
Take Me down. Breathe Me down. Be at
peace in your mind. Be at peace. Do right now what you think
you would do on your deathbed—right now.

quietly] Come and sit before Me and offer your gifts,

This is My Admonition to My
devotees: Self-surrendered, self-forgotten, give up your
stress, your own act of separateness.
