About Streams of Nectar

Streams of Nectar is founded by Association of Devotees & Disciples of Sri Sitaramdas Omkarnath & Sri Vitthal Ramanuja.

Streams of Nectar theme is inspired from a seminal work ‘Sudhar Dhara’ which is the galitam phalam (ripe fruit) of Sitaramdas Omkarnath's Sadhan Kalpataru (wish-yielding tree of spiritual practice) obtained after churning of the Scriptures.

The Streams of Nectar are invaluable precepts, presented in simple and lucid style. They are really a boon to mankind in the present day world.
"This Maharasayana", in the words of Guru, "is the friend of the free, a guide to those who seek freedom and a great elixir to the ordinary man of the world."

The Streams of Nectar span all possibilities from the most ordinary to the most esoteric aspects of Hinduism. The center of the fountain of these streams is of course Naam Avatara Sitaramdas Omkarnath. All the spiritual aspirants may slake their thirst for joy in their life through Streams of Nectar.

Streams of Nectar, though springing from the depths of Sanatana Dharma, are secular in their appeal and practice. They are meant for all.
Sudha Dhara

The kundalini rises in the yogi
By means of static pose and breath-control.
The yogi penetrates one after one
The six circles and unites Shakti with Shiva
At the thousand-petalled lotus in the head.
From that sweet communion streams of nectar
Flow constantly. The yogi drinks at it
And is liberated. But if thou chantest
'Rama, Rama' without a break, thou wilt
Not need any yoga. My mother (kundalini) will arise
On hearing the Name. Chant the Name, traveler,
Day and night. All austerities come with
Folded hands and place flower-offerings
At the feet of the chanter of the Name.
Don’t listen to, look at, or think of anything else.
Lose thyself and be blessed by chanting the Name.
Day after day thy life wears off. Chant the Name,
At all times, Sitaram, servant of the Lord.

[XXIX Sudha Dhara (Streams Of Nectar):
Sri Sri Sitaramdas Omkarnath]

There the sky is filled with music:
There it rains nectar:
There the harp-strings jingle, and there the drums beat.
What a secret splendour is there, in the mansion of the sky!
There no mention is made of the rising and the setting of the sun;
In the ocean of manifestation, which is the light of love, day and night are felt to be one.
Joy forever, no sorrow--no struggle!
There have I seen joy filled to the brim, perfection of joy;
No place for error is there.
Kabir says: "There have I witnessed the sport of One Bliss!"

Shiva says the great nectar flows from Kundalini when it has risen to the top of the head. This is the great wine. She is the supreme Shakti within the body.
Yogini Tantra

"Spring was eternal, and the gentle breezes caressed the flowers, all springing forth without seed, with clear warm air. Soon, also, the unplowed earth was rich with grain, and fields always fertile, were white with the heavy beards of corn. Then rivers of milk, then streams of nectar flowed forth…
OVID on the Golden Age

Sage Vyasa writes that Lakshmi came out of the ocean during the churning of the ocean (Samudra Manthan). So she is known as a daughter of the ocean. She came out of the ocean sitting on a full-bloomed lotus and also having lotus flowers in both hands with two elephants by her sides, holding a beautiful vessel filled with milk and pouring it over Sri Lakshmi. Many a time we see Sri Lakshmi standing in the lotus and elephants are pouring nectar over her.

After bathing, the devotee will seek out Lord Ganesha. To supplicate the Elephant-faced Lord, the devotee will cross his arms in front of his face and knock three times on his temples. The yogis say that this causes a stream of nectar to flow down the spine from the pituitary region of the brain. This nectar washes over Ganesha, bringing him great delight. He unites the dual streams and sets the kundalini flowing through the shashumna on its journey ever upward. With Ganesha's blessing, consciousness leaves the mundane world to tread the path of wisdom.
Layne Little, Entering the Cosmic Body

Streams of Nectar flow, your treasures are unweighable and overflowing in abundance. You are Infinite Sublime and Remotest of the Remote
Sawayyas of Sri Mukhbaak Mohalla

Obeisance to Thee, O Bhavani !
Whose tresses deck the crescent moon.
Thou art the stream of nectar that
Extinguishes samsara’s heat.
Sarasvati-Rahasya-Upanishad 41

"O innerself, all the vital faculties of human body, with one accord, exalt you. Hundreds of great gifts are provided to you by all pervading and all sustaining vital breaths. May the three joy-giving streams of nectar flow to him for exhilaration and cure".
RgVeda VI.17.11

When it remains pressed in the throat passage, the tongue is able to receive the nectar "beams of the moon," which are [simultaneously] salty, hot, and pungent, but also lilke milk, honey, and ghee. Then all diseases are eliminated, and also old age. Thus he will be able to teach all the Vedas and the Shastras; and he has power to attract the damsels of the siddhas. He who with upturned gaze and tongue in throat meditates on kundalini [parashakti] and drinks from the pure source of the nectar stream that flows from the "moon" in the head into the 16-petaled lotus [the vishuddha chakra], he will be free from all diseases and will live long with a beautiful body, delicate as a lotus petal--if during practice he keeps prana under control.
Here we have the answer to the question: "Where does the nectar flow once it is deviated from its natural course, the fire of life (solar plexus)?" The tongue guides it into the vishuddha chakra (in the throat), i.e. into the most important one, the 16-petaled lotus that carries the sound a, the primeval sound which even precedes 0m (Aum). Thus he is enabled to teach all the Vedas and the Shastras. Here we cannot help but think of the saying: "His words flow like nectar from his lips" --like nectar that flows from his mind.
Inside of the upper part of Mount Meru--that if the sushumna--there, in the opening, nectar is secreted. He who has a pure sattva mind, not overshadowed by rajas and tamos, therein recognizes the Truth \his own Atman]. It is the gully into which the currents discharge themselves. From the "moon" flows the nectar, the bodily essence, and hence the death of the mortals. Therefore one should practice the beneficial khecari mudra. Otherwise no siddhis will be attained.
Hatha Yoga Pradipika

By Guru's Grace, one who has found the Lord within is happy, inwardly and outwardly.
Slowly, gently, drop-by-drop, the stream of nectar trickles down within.
The mind drinks it in, hearing and reflecting on the Word of the Shabad.
It enjoys bliss and ecstasy day and night, and plays with the Lord forever and ever. ||2||
I have now been united with the Lord after having been separated and cut off from Him for so many lifetimes;
by the Grace of the Holy Saint, the dried-up branches have blossomed forth again in their greenery.
I have obtained this sublime understanding, and I meditate on the Naam; as Gurmukh, I have met the Lord. ||3||
As the waves of water merge again with the water,
so does my light merge again into the Light.
Says Nanak, the veil of illusion has been cut away, and I shall not go out wandering any more
Section 06 - Raag Maajh - Part 009 Guru Granth Sahib

Like a perennial stream, the Ambrosial Nectar (Amrit) of immortality overflows from my Shabad; drink it in. The vibratory transcendental sound from selfless Kirtan of my Shabad drives away impure thoughts, just as the lightning pierces the darkness. In my celestial stillness, meditate on the Lord's Naam within, let your mind silently rest in peace and reflect upon the secrets of the Self. The Divine Enlightenment through the Light of the Shabad comes to you every time you contemplate on it. Thus, the real Gurdwaaraa is realized only through a change in the inner consciousness. No experience is greater than being in the presence of Eternal Satguru — your very soul."
