Subtle Body of H. H. Shivkrupanand Swami
Whatever sadhana(prolonged Meditation) that Guru does when in physical body, its energy exist even after the death of physical body and a subtle body is created from it. Normally this happens when a Guru departs from the physical body, may be 25 - 30 years of the physical body's death this subtle body will be formed.
There are many subtle bodies in the universe but to give any form to the subtle body you need a connection in the physical form.
In past these two bodies never exist together. Physical body has got its limitation and it cannot go beyond this limitation. Subtle body can exist in any part of the world and anyone can be connected to it. With the progress in Guru Element for the first time it has happened that, the physical and subtle body of a Satguru exist together in the same time. This is an advance stage of Guru Element, Guru Element cannot be bound to any body and it's beyond the limitation of body. It only takes different body at different time.
Shree Swamiji suggest us to keep attention on His subtle form, it is His energy form. Many sadhaks (Meditators) experience this. One sadhak from Navasari got sight of the subtle body while in Meditation, the picture shown to the left is painted by him.
This is how any-one who makes a pure wish can get connected to this subtle form and progress spiritually. A person can connect to the subtle body initially, through the mantra, a picture or a recorded discourse.
