Immortality is the rare quality of a group of people living, beaming with the universal truths of life. When they come together at the Kumbh Mela as a spiritual force, that nectar of immortality becomes available to all who become a part of the Kumbh Mela.
A tattva or a spiritual doctrine means an idea grasped by your intellect. Satya means an idea imbibed by your bio-memory. When a group of people start living the tattvas as satya, anyone who comes inside that group, gets blessed by those tattvas. When you radiate those tattvas, you become immortal, just like the legendary Nachiketa of Kathopanishad, who became immortal because of his authenticity. When a group of people radiate these tattvas, they become the kumbh pot. Whoever comes into their space, they are all given that nectar, and whoever receives that nectar, they also become immortal. The real amrit kumbh is the strength of enlightened consciousness, maintained by the group of enlightened beings.
When The Gods Lost the Amrit Kalasha: What Really Happened
There was a time, there was a group of people who were radiating these tattvas, living like gods. That place was called Svargaloka and that collective enlightened consciousness was called amrit kalasha.
Sometimes, some people who get into the place, want to enjoy the infrastructure of the place but don’t want to practice the tattvas. A few demons got into the Svarga loka to enjoy the palaces, but they didn’t want to live the principles of the place. When you enter into a place and want to enjoy the infrastructure but don’t want to follow the principles, you are called an asura, demon. When you live inauthentically, you make others also believe that they can enjoy the infrastructure and be inauthentic. So the gods also started becoming demonic. When a critical mass is not living authenticity, the collective super-consciousness gets destroyed. That is how the amrit kalasha gets lost in the ocean of confusion. The gods were suffering, and demons were enjoying. Gods enjoy when they achieve something, demons enjoy when others lose something.
Kumbh Mela: Bringing the Nectar Back
Whoever wants to live enlightenment needs to take the responsibility for not just their own but others’ inauthenticity as well, because others’ inauthenticity will also affect the being who wants to live enlightenment as a lifestyle. Who is responsible for the pot falling into the ocean does not matter, because suffering is for the people who want to radiate enlightenment. All the beings who want to live like gods, take the responsibility to retrieve that amrit and make it available to all mankind.
When a large gathering of people living the great truths as their lifestyle come together in the Kumbh Mela, the nectar of immortality or amrit that humanity had lost, becomes available to mankind once again. Kumbh Melas are the rare opportunity for all to partake of that nectar that is available to them just by dint of being a part of the festival.
