DEATHLESSNESS AND THE ULTIMATE DIMENSION
ALTAIR NIRBANDH SHYAM*
How to cross the Bridge Across Forever
This week I received a beautiful confirmation.
I have been working over the past three years with communities in heartfulness and mindfulness, empathy and compassion.
This week a new community in Tokyo where I live invited me to come and teach about heartfulness and mindfulness.
I was deeply touched as this will affect some hundreds of people none of whom I have met before.
It brought to mind the promise I made to the Dalai Lama, to go and teach one hundred people about compassion and love and light, and ask them to reach out to touch one hundred more, and so on, until the entire world is transformed.
When I was practicing Jyotish Alchemy of Light Astrology in the USA and Canada around twenty years ago, this is how it worked. I would be invited to one community and work with around one hundred or so people over a week, reminding them of who they truly were, giving them an experience of their true radiant nature, then someone in that group would know someone in another city and I would receive an invitation to go and teach and heal in another city.
We have that incredible power right here and now in this virtual community when we share other’s posts that resonate with us and touch others hearts with our own experiences.
It reminded me of the ultimate dimension we all live in, all the time, whether we are aware of it or not, and the power of deathlessness in our lives.
We live in multi-dimensions all the time and so we touch the hearts of many beings all the time, even if we are unaware of them.
Light Family, past lives, other worlds, these dimensions cannot be separated, although our minds like to think they can.
Most of the time we find ourselves in the historical dimension, subject to the past, present and future, with its limits of time and space, life and death.
Yet we are also living in the ultimate dimension with its limitless, timelessness, nameless, deathlessness, most of the time unaware of this reality.
How to connect these two, moment to moment, so that both are meaningful, practical, and real in our lives?
Through the dimension of awareness in action, the portal of presence in the now, the bridge across forever.

How can we act in the now to help people bound by history, past-present-future, time and space, to get in touch with their ultimate nature so they can free themselves and live in peace?
Practicing our path and liberating beings is the action of bodhisattvas, archangels, elders and masters.
The action that bridges forever and leads us to the shore beyond is the action of helping all beings to see that even though they live and act in the historical dimension of past-present-future, they are manifestations of the divine, from the ultimate dimension.
To see this is a revelation, to see the True Self, our true radiant nature, God Consciousness within.
To follow this bodhisattva, angelic or the master path is to recognize Being from accessing the silence and stillness within regularly, and seeing our true essential radiant nature, in the ultimate dimension, where there is no birth or death.
It reminded me of the beautiful bodhisattva Sadaparibhuta** who symbolizes our deep faith and never underestimates or doubts our capacity for Buddhahood or to be a Christ Light.
This Bodhisattva within us says “I possess Buddha nature, the capacity to be Christ-like, and I have the capacity to be a Buddha or a Christ Light.”
In the ultimate dimension we already are a Buddha, a Christ, a Krishna and Divine Mother and so we can become one in this dimension of past-present-future.
This true nature is enLightenment and Love, is already present within each one of us, so all we need to do is get in touch with it and manifest it.
When we truly get in touch with the Bodhisattva of faith, Sadaparibhuta, inside us, we remove feelings of worthlessness and low self-esteem in ourselves and others.
We often find our mind searching and asking questions like “How can I become a Christ? How can I become enlightened? How can I get free and help others when I am not free myself?”
We all have these questions and feelings at some time or other.
When we work with the divine power within to encourage and empower others who feel this way, to remind them that they too have the Buddha nature, that they are a miracle, that they can do everything that Christ did and more, we inspire a great message of confidence and hope in others which in turn fills us with the power of the bodhisattva or earth angel.
Sadaparibhuta, in real life, did not chant sutras or practice in the way we would normally think, he did not meditate for long periods of time or go on retreats.
He had a simple special gift.
Whenever he met someone he would say “You are someone special, you are a future Buddha, I see that in you.”
So interestingly this message was not always well received.
Many people who have not gotten in touch with the ultimate dimension struggle with self-esteem and do not believe it when someone says to them “You are a future Buddha.”
In history he was ridiculed, driven away, shouted at, insulted and beaten.
But he did not become angry or abandon those people who pushed him away.
He continued to stay sincere and calm and never gave up on a single person.
I have had this same experience many times.
I am sure you have had it too.
We plant seeds of love and yet there are some people who misinterpret what we are giving them or even perceive it as some attack on them.
This great bodhisattva had a simple action.
The meaning of his life, his practice, was simply to bring confidence and hope to everyone.
When he was dying, Sadaparibhuta was listening carefully to the ultimate dimension. He was ready to make the transition. Just at that point however he clearly heard the Buddha’s voice and through the teaching completely purified his entire body.
He was able to touch the ultimate dimension and attain deathlessness.
This is a very deep listening and seeing.
When we surrender our self at various points in life, and one of them is what we call death, we sometimes get the opportunity to fully access the portal of the ultimate dimension and see that our true Self’s lifespan is infinite or deathless.
Just like the Buddha or the Christ.
Born into eternal life.
This secret to all the teachings and to deathlessness is given to Martha by Yeshua in John 11:25
Yeshua said to Martha “I am the resurrection and the life. She who believes in Me (the God/Christ Consciousness Within) will live, even if she dies.”
And John 5:11
“God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son (the God/Christ Consciousness Within, at the Heart Centre, to be found in silence and stillness)
We too can experience this same kind of liberation and transformation as Martha and Sadaparibhuta did.
When our consciousness is prepared regularly through the practice of silence and stillness in meditation and purified through mindfulness and heartfulness we can hear and see the ultimate dimension in the wind in the trees in a garden* or in a piece of sublime music or the look of a loved one’s eyes.
The ultimate dimension is around us all the time as I experienced through the eyes and ears of Our Divine Mother Guan Yin* (see Note 1 below).
The message of our own Lotus Heart is a medicine for long life and deathlessness.
We preserve and transmit our inner teachings to many others.
We know that our true nature is unborn and undying so we no longer fear death.
We recognize that every time we enter a portal like silence or stillness it is a portal of death, death to the self, death to mind-made form, death to time, and we stop the world. We stop the perpetual thoughts that make up our self-created identity.
We realize that death is an illusion, just as our clinging to form is an illusion. Death is merely the end of all illusion.
We dare to share this wonderful teaching with all living beings.
And others realize and begin to understand.
Instead of doubting themselves or disbelieving, they see the results of our own practice and get in touch with their own ultimate nature, the radiant true Self.
This is our real practice, the practice of the bodhisattva or archangel, elder or master within us all, to see others with wisdom and compassion and hold up insight of their own ultimate nature so they can awaken and Self-realize and see themselves reflected in that insight.
In one of the communities I work in, in Tokyo, a survey on self-image was given recently to a large group of teenagers. More than 50% of them reported feeling low self-esteem and feeling unworthiness.
Part of my path is working with young people in developing confidence and self-esteem through the performing arts by utilizing mindfulness and heartfulness in their daily performance practice.
It is the same for many adults.
They struggle with wanting to be good at something and feel envy when they look at others, regarding themselves as failures if they have not achieved the same degrees of worldly success.
We need to try to help others who feel this way.
We can come to them and say “I see in you good seeds that with nurturing make you into a great being. If you look deeply within, you can manifest your true nature.”
For example, in a recent Dove report on beauty and confidence world-wide, four in five women in Australia reported low body esteem, and 90% of those reported opting out of normal activities outside of the house, like engaging with friends and family, because they didn’t feel good about the way they looked.
If we know someone who sees themselves as worthless or powerless or has a negative self-image that takes away happiness and peace, we have to try to help them remove such a complex.
This is the practice of an earth angel, a bodhisattva, a master.
We practice so as to not add to these feelings of low self-esteem.
Children especially suffer from our harsh and judgmental comments when we feel tired or irritated.
When we are under pressure or stress we often utter unkind words in a moment of anger.
We are all divine children.
I know many of you great souls are also extraordinarily sensitive beings and in many senses can be very young and fresh and so any of us can sow negative seeds quite easily in each other without thinking, destroying another’s capacity to be happy.
So as healers and teachers, we should be very careful and practice mindfulness and heartfulness in order to avoid sowing negative seeds in the hearts and minds of our fellow human beings.
We need to practice never giving up on people, not losing patience with them, mirroring their own true nature to them, through faith, confidence and inclusiveness, freeing people from negative self-image, helping them realize their own awakening and True Self-image and leading them to the ultimate dimension and deathlessness.

**With deep and humble gratitude to one of my teachers Thich Nhat Hanh for his wonderful stories he shared with me about Sadaparibhuta.
NOTE 1 :
* Divine Mother has given me a gift, the gift of healing.
My gift manifests as the simple act of devotion to Divine Mother.
As I write tears fill my eyes.
It is as simple as that.
Anything I offer to you is Hers.
Any miracle manifested is done by Her Hands, any friendship we share is a Divine Friendship given by Her.
So my day and my night and every waking thought is devoted to Her.
I will share a Sacred Vision she gave me.
My Mother Guan Yin was working Her divine magic in and through me in this healing process.
I received a simple, yet profound message.
I was meditating by a Zen rock garden under a Sakura tree in central Tokyo.
Listening to manifested sounds of the Pyramids of Giza from the Source. When my eyes were opened My Mother Guan Yin gifted me with a sacred gift.
Not a pearl this time (in the past a deep ocean pearl manifested out of the heart of a statue of Guan Yin for me) but a Sacred Vision.
As I walked in the gardens the wind became Her Voice, the petals Her Skin, the light Her Face, the water Her Tears.
It was truly sublime.
She walks the paths with me.
Divine Mother and I are not separate.
It made me think about how the gifts of healing we receive are like the Petals of the Flower of Life.
Pure and Precious Divine Consciousness manifesting through us.
Love You Dearest Blessed Mother.
Thank you for being beside me every moment of my life.
Every person, animal, nature and thing from the crowds gathering, to the rock, to the sky and beyond was immersed in the Universal Mother Love. Thank you again from every part of my heart.
I AM THAT I AM, אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה ’ehyeh ’ăšer ’ehyeh
I am here to do the work of Our Mother in assisting both in Mother Gaia’s ascension and by walking the Path of the Bodhisattva in seeking Krishnahood, Christhood, Buddhahood and healing for all beings.
