*…At Your Service…*




Today, I’d like to talk about: SAMSKARAS

What are they?
Essentially, they are Scars from Samsara.

– what is Samsara?
Samsara is the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth ~ over and over, and over again.
Round, and around “The Wheel of Life”.

– you may not have your memory, but you have your Soul Scars.

I have contemplated them, before; I have one, above my left breast, that stings of betrayal… sometimes, it feels *active*, trying to seep into my consciousness… but I only glimpse flashes – like an arrowhead, or a spear… and I won’t go into the *feeling*; (~ but to say: “hot tears”).

However, I have been thinking about them, more, recently, since I noticed a decline in the mental health of The Compassionate Ones; I have a friend who has said:
“I think something has happened here, that’s never happened before; No life, ever, in any universe, on any planet, has damaged me as much as this one has.”

That hurt me to hear, because I knew it was true.
I know him.
I’ve seen us change…

And I thought about all the new samskaras we’d gained.

My Heart, in particular, is in completely unfamiliar and hostile territory.
And I used to be the optimistic one.

I reach out to you, today, to acknowledge these old wounds. And any new ones this incarnation gave you.

I don’t much like to put samskaras into words, because they are generally from the worst of the worst – like genocide, betrayal, and abuse.

I remember learning, that when a child is exposed to unsafe conditions, a samskara can *pop*, and *–*, flooding the consciousness of the small person, and filling them with adult emotion.
I’ve seen that happen.

I can’t say that I know how to heal them… I know that when you die, and leave your body, they go dormant, in the Light Body.
*~ Weightlessness ~*

It’s just in the being here, that they flare up.
I have ventured into the wound – flashes – like I said; I have visioned, chanted, forgiven – forgotten.
I have tried healing consciously, praying, re-living, sending Light, and Love… Tried moving on, moving forward, fading to black – and yet, it still flares up, sometimes…

So I guess it has come down to: Learning to Live With It.
(- but that won’t stop me from researching samskaras, further.)

* See the comments, below, for some excellent articles on a sore subject.

This image, is of a man who was the victim of a racial attack; these scars may seep further than just skin-deep.

Imagine how many people are scarred under their clothes.

How many are scarred under their skin.

Some identify as brave, with their battle-scars, and war-wounds; medals of honour, courage, survival, and strength.

Some people like scars, because what seems invisible within them, has been made visible; either upon their flesh, or the flesh of another.

Some just Hurt. Deeply, Privately, Silently…

Personally, I like to touch them, with my healing hands, and radiate… Soul Deep.

It is the separation of Body and Soul that has scarred us all the most.

    Vipassna will help you cleanse yourelf of samskaras/sankaras. It’s a free course, you should look up one in your area and sign up as soon as you have the time; don’t put it off or say you’ll do it later. I promise you can be relieved of the suffering if you practice correctly.

  3. “What is Sanskar?

    It is very difficult to define ‘Sanskar’ in a few words. The word ‘Sanskar’ has its origin in the Sanskrit language. There is no word in other languages comparable to ‘Sanskar’. So several main languages of the world have adopted the ‘Sanskar’ word in their vocabulary or have included this word in their dictionary. The surfacial meaning of the word ‘Sanskar’ is to purify, to refine, to supplement, to brighten, to adorn the inner conscience. However, its meaning in wider sense is as deep as the depth of the ocean and as vast as the spread of the sky.

    ‘Sanskar’ is a process, which transforms a person into an ideal & outstanding personality by eradicating/controlling the negative mental tendencies existing in him and by inculcating human values & qualities to make him more dynamic, discreet, duty conscious and responsible towards himself as well as family and the society.

    ‘Sanskar’ is like plantation of a seed of human values into the subconscious of a person during his childhood so that adherence of these values becomes part of his nature and keeps on guiding him throughout his life. A person acts according to the ideals which exist in his subconscious without being aware of them. Thus his decisions, his reactions to actions of others and the quality of his actions depend upon the values existing in his subconscious. Conduct and behaviour of a person are always according to his inner values.

    ‘Sanskar’ purifies feelings, thoughts and actions/deeds and adds momentum of life.
    ‘Sanskar’ purifies inner conscious of the person and makes life meaningful.
    ‘Sanskar’ adds good conduct, good thoughts and human qualities to a man’s personality and sublimates his mind.
    ‘Sanskar’ forms a culture and develops social values. The Conduct & Behaviour and Sanskar are integrated to each other.

    The Process of Sanskar:

    Basically the process of ‘Sanskar’ has three components, namely:

    Purification (Doshapanayan) – To purify a person physically, vitally mentally and to eradicate/ weed out the negative mental thoughts and tendencies, which may exist in a person at the time of his birth and/or which he may have acquired from his family and surrounding environment.

    Making up Deficiency (Heenangpoorti) – To make up the deficiency of human values which he lacks.

    Value Enrichment (Gunaadhaan) – To inculcate qualities and transform him into an ideal, compassionate, responsible, dutiful and outstanding human who follows his duties diligently towards himself, his family, the society and the universe.


    We know about diamonds, which reach us after undergoing many processes. A raw diamond stone when extracted from mines looks like an ordinary stone. In the first place dust and other foreign materials are removed by cleaning. Then the process of refinement, cutting, polishing etc. is carried out to transform it into a finished diamond. Then only that diamond is made into an ornament so that it becomes more beautiful, useful and valuable. The process of transforming the raw diamond stone into a finished diamond is the ‘Sanskar’ of raw diamond. The act of cleaning, removing dust and other foreign material is purification, the act of refinement, cutting, finishing, polishing is ‘making up the deficiency’ and the act of making it into an ornament is ‘value enrichment’.”

  4. “Samskaras
    There are three types of potential reactions to any situation: inborn, acquired, and imposed.

    Inborn samskaras are those we have acquired in previous lives. For example, a child prodigy is one who probably developed a great degree of proficiency in his past life.

    Acquired samskaras are those you create of your own will in this life, through action independent of your inborn reactive momenta. A young woman grows up in a family of chefs and has culinary talent from an early age. However, she may acquire momentum to earn her degree in physics and spend her life studying quark symmetries.

    Imposed samskaras are the impressions created upon your mind by the world in which you live. You acquire these as you are influenced by world conditions, family, responsibility, and education.

    The young woman in the previous example will always be a good cook because of the momentum imposed by her chef parents.

    People who, by dint of culture and environmental conditions, are poor, diseased, and uneducated may not be that way because of past lives; imposed reactive momenta hinders their progress.”
