Healing your Inner Child

14 Jun

Ascended Master Krishna

Who is the Ascended Master Krishna?

Krishna is an ascended master who has pledged to help heal the inner child as we sing mantras and bhajans to him.

In the Hindu tradition, Krishna is a divine being, an incarnation of the Godhead, an avatar, and he is one of the most celebrated Indian heroes of all time. He has captured the imagination and devotion of Hindus everywhere in his many forms—whether as a frolicking, mischievous child, as the lover of shepherdesses, or as the friend and wise counselor of the mighty warrior Arjuna.

The Story of Krishna and Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita

Krishna is known as the eighth incarnation of Vishnu, the Second Person of the Hindu Triad. His story is told in the Bhagavad Gita, the most popular religious work of India, composed between the fifth and second centuries b.c. and part of the great Indian epic, the Mahabharata.

Bhagavad Gita means “Song of God.” It is written as a dialogue between Krishna and Arjuna. Krishna describes himself as “the Lord of all that breathes” and “the Lord who abides within the heart of all beings,” meaning one who is in union with God, one who has attained that union that is God. He says: “When goodness grows weak, when evil increases, my Spirit arises on earth. In every age I come back to deliver the holy, to destroy the sin of the sinner, to establish righteousness.”

How to Ask Krishna to Help Heal Your Inner Child

Assess the age you were at the moment of the trauma. You can ask for these events in your life to pass before your third eye like slides moving across a screen or even a motion picture.

Visualize Krishna’s Presence over you at the age when you experienced any emotional trauma, physical pain, mental pain, from this or a previous lifetime. Then, visualize Lord Krishna at that age—six months old, six years old, twelve years old, fifty years old—and see him standing over you and over the entire situation. If there are other figures in this scene through whom the pain has come, see the Presence of Lord Krishna around them also.

Give the devotional mantra and song until you are pouring such love to Lord Krishna that he is taking your love, multiplying it through his heart, passing it back through you and transmuting that scene and that record.

If you see Lord Krishna superimposed over every party to the problem, to the anger, to the burden, you can understand that you can affirm in your heart that there really is no Reality but God. Only God is Real, and God is placing his Presence over that situation through the personification of himself in Lord Krishna.

The festival of Janmashtami commemorates the birthday of Lord Krishna, the eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. The festival is also referred to as Gokulashtami, or Govinda in Maharashtra. Lord Krisha is revered for his wisdom about how to live life on Earth.

When is Krishna Janmashtami Celebrated:

August/September, depending on the cycle of the moon. The festival runs for two days. In 2014, it will take place on August 17-18.

Where is Krishna Janmashtami Celebrated:

Throughout India. One of the best places to experience the festival is in the city of Mumbai. Celebrations take place at hundreds of locations across the city and Maharashtra Tourism runs special buses for foreign tourists. The huge ISKCON temple complex, in the beach side suburb of Juhu, also has a special festival program. In Mathura, the birthplace of Lord Krishna in northern India, temples are brightly decorated for the occasion, many with displays depicting important scenes from the life of Lord Krishna.
