10000 Hour Rule and Yogic Grace of the Guru
The 10,000 Hour Rule —the principle holds that 10,000 hours of “deliberate practice” are needed to become world-class in any field. For the yogi, this is Guru’s grace that condenses the timelessness of mastery into time.
“On the path seeking my wholeness as a yogi was grace. Grace of my Gurus condensed timelessness to time. My Gurus gave me a part of themselves through the mantra deeksha (the lighting of the mantra fires within me). Guru Ayya would often say, “Take me and my presence along with my Gurus through my mantras. My mantras are all you need. Light your Lamp and know your own truth within you as your inner Lamp. When light your Lamp reciting my mantras to invoke me, I am with you!”.
Siddha Guru Rajaswamy would mention, “When you see a Siddha Guru, just receive his mantra blessings and then digest the light of the mantra. Do not go and bother that Siddha Guru again as for him it is disturbance.”
In years of my journey within through caves, shrines and the spiritual wilderness of South India with my Gurus and under guidance, I realized my evolution was not only dynamic and swift but also, more efficient. For instance, being awake meant more of consciousness to better quality of thought to enhance the experience to attain more of consciousness- a cycling of efficiency. It was like learning to run and then fly and with time, glide. To wake up as Spirit (also called satori) is the first of grace. To attain the Guru to guide and expand consciousness is the grace of wisdom. To awaken the inner fires, the Guru within, is empowerment. To realize life purpose and be the inspired yogi working for humanity is blessings to be the Angel creating heavens.” – Nandhiji
From the Siddha wisdom of understanding learning, understanding and realization, the blessings we receive from Masters and Temples is seeds of consciousness, the embryos instilled in us. A Yogi nurtures these embryos to expand and be the consciousness that ultimately is the Master and the sacred enshrined in the Temple.
