THE COSMIC VITAL FORCE PURUSHA: GOD SAVITA

THE COSMIC VITAL FORCE PURUSHA: GOD SAVITA

 

http://www.shriramsharma.com/heralding_a_radiant_world_future_in_the_21st_century.htm

There are 2 main principles that are involved in the cretion of this cosmos. The first is Prana (vital force) and the second is Bhuta (5 great elements viz. earth, water, fire, air and space). In which ever area these 2 principles combine there one can witness activity and mobility. Five elements without vital force can never vibrate. Hence in the material world where ever there is life principle or vital force it is called Gayatri Shakti by Rishis of yore.

 

In human beings both the vital force and 5 elements manifest. In childhood a small mass made up of 5 elements imbibes vital force. At that time its power and brilliance were lesser in measure but as and when the body matures along with an increase in the measure of vital force its energy and mobility too augment. According to the stage of life i.e. childhood, youth and old age it is called the fuel of Gayatri (Samidha) because vital force rages akin to fire within it.

 

After this both principles separate. Vital force exits and the body made up of 5 elements lies inert (post death). In the Rig Veda (1/164/3) this dead body is described as: The body made up of 5 elements is called dead Gayatri. In it the power of thought, understanding, experiencing joy/sorrow, all movements, change, mobility, progress, regress of life in human beings has its basis in the vital force. It can be called a gross principle like rays, light or fire. It is controlled and inspired by a third psychological power. Through its desire and power of resolve all physical activities take place. Hence in this single word called Gayatri one finds the presence of 5 material Pranas and tri mental powers. In scriptures it is called that science which dispels worldly turmoil and liberates one from all illusion.

 

Where does Gayatri manifest from? As an answer to this Upanishad scholars opine:

Divine illusion or Indra Energy is that power which manifests as cosmic Gayatri i.e. in many forms. What exactly is this Divine Power or who is Indra?

 

Sun is that Indra that has millions of rays. Each ray corresponds to each form. Within these rays we can find vital force. Sun is also called 3-fold wisdom. It means that the sun is that Gayatri which is present on Earth in the form of body, vital force and mind/psyche. In this manner we can call the sun a Cosmic Purusha who in a widespread area acts like a human being. He can think and get angry too. He can give punishments or incentives too. He can manifest emotions like joy/sorrow contentment/discontent and we should not be surprised at all with this idea.

 

Up till now this subject has its basis in our faith arena. It means that in whoever’s heart dispassion and faith arise he/she tends to think that “in the omnipresent sky some Goddess called Gayatri must be seated who hears and understands our inner sentiments and gives us boons accordingly”. But this Cosmic Purusha has been proved by science in this manner that in whoever’s heart such sentiments are absent even they can contact this Prana Purusha and can benefit in the same way as a small electric station gets lit due to contact with a larger electric generating power station.

 

Man is Micro Gayatri and sun is Macro Gayatri. When this Micro Gayatri is conjoined to Cosmic Gayatri it too experiences that type of power and potential just as a rich father’s so despite owning nothing has an ego of being rich and harbors faith that he can purchase anything he wants. It means that on attaining the cosmic form of Gayatri man too becomes powerful which is equivalent to the power present in Sun God. This verily is called Sidhi or Divine Glories.

http://www.shriramsharma.com/heralding_a_radiant_world_future_in_the_21st_century.htm

It is important to understand that is the sun actually a Cosmic Purusha with 3-fold power wherein like human beings there are various types of sensations? While describing solar rays scientists say that it is an admixture of 3 colors (3 main colors and when they inter mix 7 more colors manifest). These colors can be separated by using a Spectrometer. If there is similarity between humans and the sun, these colors should be seen in the human body too. And yet human blood is red in color. Then where is the similarity?

 

Despite all this students of science know that actually the color of blood is not red. Due to an admixture of many elements the color red appears. In fact the actual color of blood is yellow. In these days to know that death definitely has occurred an injection of urinine is administered in the skin. If the person is not dead and blood circulation exists the color of skin becomes red and green. Blue color is not perceived because of the existence of deep red color. Else via this technique there is a clear demarcation of the presence of this 3-fold power in the body. In a dead body the above injection has no effect.

 

With reference to the sun which is perceived as immutable a priest named Christoff Shiner of Ingelstead passed on a message to his assistant priest that there are black spots present on it. But in Aristotle’s book this information was absent. Hence poor Shiner had to bear with many criticisms from all sides. But fortunately at that time Galilee with the help of a telescope proved the point that truly there exist spots of various hues on the sun and they are mobile too. At times they were seen to burst and spread in all directions. Sometimes these spots disappeared. Sometimes neighboring spots would shine very brightly. Many a times they disintegrated into smaller parts. Initially scientists could not find the cause behind such activities of solar spots. But slowly they found out that all these are but gigantic whirlwinds of hot gases and they are very much akin to the desire power of human beings.

 

Along with the brilliance of the sun the light that beams forth is called flare and at such times light that flows in a spiral form is called filament. With reference to this many mind boggling facts are manifesting. Scientists have started agreeing with the fact that the sun definitely is sensitive. Meaning that these movements, agitations, joy and anger are but gross vibrations of these sentiments and just as thought influences the body (psycho somatic) in the same way agitations too bring about great movements in nature. In the agitated state the sun emits special subtle particles and a pile of rays which move at enormous speeds and influence regions which are millions of miles away. To the extent that they even churn magnetic fields. At such times the needle of a mariner’s compass too shivers and trembles.

 

As a result of its influence on earth there is snow fall, hail, famine, stunted tree growth, floods, rain, heat and cold. Apart from this its influence has been seen in political, economic, social and sensitive emotional arenas too. A few months back in the Scientific American magazine an article published in it by a scientist M. Mumfort says there is a kind of cyclonic storm manifested by the sun and over there currently agitations are erupting at break neck speed. This indeed will severely affect our planet earth. Natural movements/activities will intensify. Number of aerial accidents will increase as will human distress.

 

These adversities can last for up to 6 or 7 years. According to great subtle seers these agitations are the sun’s psychological revolution and they opine that from this no matter how gigantic and dire changes in the world’s geography take place yet Indian culture will always get shelter. At the root of its advancement it is the desire of that Cosmic Purusha which is operating. Anyone is free to accept this fact either from a scientist’s viewpoint or with sheer faith at its root. Apart from Sun God’s psychological nature it also has the vital force and 5-fold nature.

http://www.shriramsharma.com/heralding_a_radiant_world_future_in_the_21st_century.htm

All ores and chemical elements present in the human body are present in the sun too. Man’s body harbors and admixture of solar and earth based elements. Hence from the physical and psychological standpoint the body is not only influenced by earth but very intensely by the sun too. If we think deeply about our body we will notice that by taking in food, water etc of earth elements like oxygen, nitrogen, carbon, iron, sulfur, sodium, calcium etc produced. Within the body even more subtle vital forces are more active than these elements. It is because of Prana that our bodies vibrate or move. It is possible to sneeze, yawn, let off foul air, sleep, wink etc because of the influence of the vital force of our body. This vital force/Prana and 5-fold nature can be easily understood via Solar Science. Exactly like human beings Prana, 5-fold nature and psychological activities are present in Sun God too.

 

We meditate on them in the form of Gayatri and the soul. If we so desire we can also imagine it in the form of Cosmic Purusha. This much is definite that just as man has a limiting ego ‘I’ the sun too has an ego. Also just as via the blessings of a holy sage we get vital force which in turn manifests as good health, siring children, wealth, intellect etc similarly via Savita or the principal god of Cosmic purusha Gayatri and with more faith we can obtain such grace and divine love. The only condition being that if we can influence it in the same way with our steadfast faith just as a son by giving joy to his father obtains the latter’s worldly belongings along with affection.

 

Hence forth these deep imports are going to be researched into in great detail. At the moment scientists are not fully aware of the method and nuances of meditation techniques. The day this knowledge is put forth scientifically the truth of worship, faith and devotion too will be unveiled and statements regarding Sidhis (Divine Powers) and spiritual capabilities too will be proved to be absolutely true.

 

The visible and invisible region of activity of Sun God is not simply the earth but is spread out in areas encompassing other planets, galaxies etc. Man’s ability to see with the help of his eyes is not powerful enough to see such a widespread area. But when he harbors a bond with Sun God he too not only perceives movements and changes on earth but that he experiences profound realities of the entire cosmos. Apart from this to an extent by building a bond with these changes he can either increase or decrease them.

 

Thousands of years back teachers of Prana or Vital Force Science had said:

Gayatri is a kind of radiant light which is the fount of the universe in the form of heat and light. Solar Gayatri is a gigantic storehouse of radiant light and is the major cause/substratum of this cosmos.

 

In the same manner scriptural scholars while depicting the form of Gayatri in human life have said that the mind is Savita. The gist of all this is that when the mind merges into Sun God Bharga/Shiva Power enters man’s consciousness and thus establishes a relationship of propriety with nature. Meaning if nature gets polluted it can correct this aberration. This is called removal of unwholesome qualities and advancement of pure character. The merging is such that while meditating on the sun, the mind’s heat and the sun’s form become one. Where there is no other imaginary thought it is called fulfillment or Sidhi of Gayatri. Hence that person will become the master of that energy and total experience of Gayatri and via those capabilities and via power of change in nature he shall be ordained with that which has been depicted previously.

 

AN EPISODE:

“I will find out the mysteries of interstellar space”. The parents of this small child were fretting over his obstinacy. Their neighbors mocked at him. But the child refused to budge. The whole day he spoke of strange things with reference to planets and galaxies. All his relatives were in distress. In those days there was not even a scientific apparatus like the telescope which would aid the child’s investigations.

http://www.shriramsharma.com/heralding_a_radiant_world_future_in_the_21st_century.htm

The whole day he incessantly gazed at the sun. Sometimes his lips let loose a string of prayers. Time passed by and his prayers became more intense. One day everyone was amazed when with his divine hindsight he calculated correct statistics of astronomy. All this was Sun god’s grace. It is said that Sun God came in his midst in the form of a boar or Varaha to test the boy’s steadfastness and fearlessness. Because the boy had a vision of Sun God (Mihir) for the first time as a boar he was called Varaha Mihir. Without the help of any technology or scientific apparatus he made many accurate astronomical calculations which today are surprising many astrophysicists who conduct research with the help of modern scientific paraphenelia.

YAJNA IN THE EYES OF GREAT WORLD THINKERS

YAJNA IN THE EYES OF GREAT WORLD THINKERS

 

http://www.shriramsharma.com/new_page_2.htm

The founder of Theosophical Society Ms Annie Besant while describing the true nature of Yajnas says that it is in fact the core principle of Hindu Philosophy. According to the Bhagwad Geeta this world was created from a Yajna basis and Yajna propagates it. Its 3rd chapter/8th verse opines that “Karma or action is that primeval Yajna which created all beings”. Similarly in the 14th chapter/3rd verse it is said “the womb of all that is created in this world is given by our father Almighty Lord”. The Lord creates this world via a Yajna only. In the Purusha Sookta it is written that “Yajna meaning selflessness is the medium via which the Lord manifested as this world and the world propagates too via a Yajna. Yajnas help world humanity reach the state of supreme greatness/perfection”. Thus it is the righteous duty of every world individual, to cogitate deeply on the importance of Yajnas and imbibe the same in ones day to day social, professional and other transactions.

 

Ordinarily there is a general consensus that Yajna or selflessness is painful and full of hardships. But know for sure this is a myth and a misconception. The gist of Yajna is joyfully and voluntarily sacrificing ones all so that others can share our bliss and comforts. The divine aspect of man’s psyche and its high stature nature literally oozes with joy while renouncing/sacrificing ones very being too for others joy and uplifting. Bang opposite to this man’s lower demonic nature loves horading things to the extent of snatching what rightfully is others’ share. Yajna can give you agony only when the Yajna doer’s higher and lower character is at loggerheads. It is only such opposites which out of imbalance that result in discontent while executing a Yajna.

 

In order to create the world Almighty Lord as per his holy wish renounced his unlimited life span. In the process this life was bound in a disciplined manner. This sort of manifestation of his world is a Yajna on his part. The Lord proclaimed: “Ekohum bahusyaama prajaayaiya” which means let me become many from one. This aphorism shows the true nature/form of a Yajna. The Lord’s epicenter in this infinite divinely radiant cosmos is everywhere but has no circumference/periphery. He is like a divine globe full of the divine light of life. The Lord in order to become an ‘individual’ desires to limit his existence and this desire is the limit of this divine light. This limit is God’s Maya (divine power of illusion) which he ‘dons’ like a cloak to create this world of name and form. In this manner by sacrificing the total absolute state of divinity along with its untold bliss the lord takes up a limiting form. This is definitely Yajna (selfless sacrifice) on the Lord’s part. Over here the Almighty Lord is binding himself. Why? The answer is that as long as this world continues to exist this Divine Yajna will persist and that also because God is the substratum of this world. All names and forms in this world are imbued with God’s divine aspect and thus god binds himself with name and form of various objects both animate and inanimate. Almighty Lord ‘enters’ every name and its form and endures its bondage until this living being aspires to merge into God’s cosmic form devoid of material bondage. Thus the Primeval Yajna of Almighty God mentioned above is nothing but the Lord imbuing all names and forms with his divinity as their substratum.

 

Bang opposite to the above Yajna material nature insists on accumulating things. The soul too influences nature and hence the forms of nature manifest. It is the soul that helps nature function. Ere the soul disappeared, these names and forms would become naught. Hence nature tries to accumulate things as much as possible and feels lost when asked to sacrifice even a small portion of its existence. For material nature or Prakriti accumulation/latching on to things gives it joy never mind if it is only fleeting.

http://www.shriramsharma.com/new_page_2.htm

Yajna or self sacrifice is full of sorrow, how this thinking manifested can be understood from the above mentioned information. The soul attains eternal divine bliss only if it self sacrifices (self also means limited ego ‘I’). In the embodied state too a creature is not bothered that with self sacrifice its body may die because it knows that the material body is not important and that it is merely a visible means of soul advancement. Creatures know well that the gross body is transient and bound to perish one day. During times of self sacrifice the body on seeing the vital force leave feels anguished and tries everything in the book to stop this from happening. That vital force diminishes while carrying out Yajna activities which the body identifies as ‘mine’ and hence body feels pained when this vital force bids adieu. The lower worlds of name and form exude this secret of Yajna and when the vital force leaves the body feels agonizing pain. Hence it is least surprising that people full of spiritual ignorance not knowing the true mystery of self sacrifice look upon Yajna too as painful. They hence fail to understand that in fact Yajna means eternal bliss while self renunciation takes place. The soul during such Yajnas prays: O Almighty God! We work as per your commands and that gives us true contentment/satisfaction.

 

Thus the Law of Yajna in this world is a Law of Soul Progress. Every brick of the foundation of advancement is laid down via yajnas. The soul while renouncing itself takes birth in a higher species and the lower body perishes. Those whose eyes are set merely on the destruction of name and form feel that all of material nature is like an abattoir or slaughter house. But those who underneath this ‘slaughter’ actually visualize the soul renouncing a lower identity for a higher stature one via self sacrifice do not feel the pain at all. In fact they are blissful with the realization that they will be reborn in a higher species which also connotes soul progress.

 

It is beyond any doubt that man whose intellect is advancing as days pass by researches with the experience of innumerable eras and unearths the truth that the Law of Life is Yajnas/self-sacrifice. But in such endeavors and other types too man has been given external aid. In the infant stage of human civilization great Rishis appeared and educated them so that they could walk on the right path. It was these great Rishis who handed down this law of Yajnas/self-sacrifice. In order to aid the dawning intellect of human beings certain righteous duties were brought into being and most definitely this law too was included. And yet they could not expect from these primordial beings the principle of renouncing something without asking for anything for them selves. In fact those materials they desired were meant for bodily sustenance (food, shelter etc). Hence it was most required that mankind slowly walk in that direction wherein ultimately he/she learns the art and joy of self-sacrifice/renunciation. Hence man was taught that he was related to beings, both higher and lower than him self and that he was very much a part of the whole so to speak. He was told that his gross body was nourished by food grains and other lower species (meat, chicken, eggs etc). Thus man is indebted to them and must repay in kind. Thus man attained that wisdom wherein he is always indebted to Mother Nature and hence it follows suit that he continuously repay this debt. With the result Yajnas now meant renouncing things dear to us and people started thus repaying their debt to nature in the process manifesting both their material and spiritual well being. Later, when a more in depth education was imparted to evolving mankind, Yajna results were extended to subtle worlds from the previously gross ones. Thus Yajnas became a stepping stone to self-sacrifice and hence well being. According to Mahatma Gandhi Yajnas connote actions executed without either asking for anything in return in this world or the next or not even mentally desiring any thing (total selflessness). These actions can have their basis in body, speech or psyche. Over here the word Karma should be given a wide berth. We should work not only for human well being but that of every animate/inanimate being of the world. From the non-violence standpoint it does not be hove mankind to kill other beings so that mankind is uplifted. This sort of animal sacrifice is certainly not Yajna at all. In Vedas and other texts no doubt descriptions of sacrificing horses, cows etc can be found. We strictly oppose them. In the weighing scale of truth and non violence animal sacrifice during Yajnas is just not the done thing. I am very satisfied with this standpoint. I cannot say anything regarding the historical meanings of religious precepts and I accept my shortcomings as far as researching into their true meanings is concerned. I am not even persevering to attain such capability. Suppose the historical meaning agrees with sacrificing other creatures for Yajnas yet I cannot stand by it because after looking upon truth and non-violence as my supreme righteous duty violence (like sacrificing animals in Yajnas) in any form is absolutely taboo for me. A Supreme Yajna is that which bestows well being of all creatures in an all pervasive cosmic manner. Such actions are also called selfless service or Sevaa Bhaava. If via hurting one being you try to bestow well being on another person know for sure this is certainly not Yajna or Sevaa. Both the Bhagwad Geeta and our own experience tell us Yajnas help us overcome bondage of actions. Without Yajnas and non violent selfless activities this world cannot exist even for a miniscule of a second. Hence the Geeta author after giving us devotees a glimpse of Divine Wisdom in the 2nd chapter talks of the method of attaining it in the 3rd chapter. With great clarity it has been said that along with our birth Yajnas too accompanied us all which means that the human body is given to us all for selfless service. Hence who so ever par takes food without first performing selfless deeds/Yajnas is indeed a ‘criminal’. This is a very harsh conclusion made by the Geeta author. Those who yearn to lead a pious life must perform every action with a Yajna attitude. We were born along with a Yajna and hence for our entire life we are indebted to the world and its beings. We are destined to serve the world for our entire sojourn in this world. Just as an employer gives his/her employee food, clothing and shelter in return for service rendered so too the Divine Employer of this world/Almighty God gives us food, shelter etc which we must accept with thanks and gratitude. Never should we complain if for some reason best known to Almighty Lord he does not give us these materials. This body belongs to God and if he so wishes he can either nurture or destroy it. This state is neither agonizing nor is it demeaned. If we understand our true status in the world it is natural blissful and most desirable. To attain this eternal pause less bliss intense faith is a must. In all great world religions I have come across this ideal wherein we must give up all worries and apprehensions and instead have deep faith in God’s justice. Have faith that what ever God does is best for us in an unquestioning manner.

http://www.shriramsharma.com/new_page_2.htm

But none should fear these words. Those who commence tasks of service with a pure mind will realize its importance as days go by. Those who refuse to renounce selfishness for them the path of service will be quite difficult to walk on. In fact their actions will continue to reek with selfishness. And yet such utter selfishness is not all that much in vogue in the world. Knowingly or otherwise we all tend to execute either major or minor selfless actions. If only we start doing the same along with due thinking our yearning for service along with spiritual bliss augment by leaps and bounds. In this lies our true happiness and welfare of the world too. We have entered this world with something at the time of our birth and it will not be a waste of time if we delve deeper into it. Knowing fully well that Yajna is our daily duty, must be imbibed all 24 hours and realizing that Yajna means selfless service the verse “Paropkaaraaya sattaam, vibhootayaha” tends to agitate us. Selfless service is not as though you are benefiting someone else because the one who is ultimately benefiting is your self only. It is like repaying a debt you owe to someone. There a burden from your shoulders is coming off. When you shed burden while repaying a debt you are performing your righteous duty. It is not as though only saints are meant to work for world well being because it is the prime duty of all human beings. Thus mankind will realize that life is not just meant for sense pleasures and when he renounces attachment to them mentally it becomes a source of divine bliss. Man’s very renunciation is his enjoyment. This is the stark difference between an animal and man’s meritorious deeds called Punya. Majority of people feel that such a meaning of life would render it ‘dry’ and lack of artistic flair. Hence for them such thinking is ‘erroneous’. But according to my humble viewpoint the word renunciation does not mean giving up hearth and home and running away into a dense forest. In fact it means while remaining in the thick of things (job, business, home etc) one develops mental renunciation that means renouncing the mental attachments towards objects. A householder’s life may be full of renunciation or full of fleeting sense pleasures. While a cobbler is making shoes, while a farmer is tilling his field, while a businessman is making a lucrative deal etc their attitude can be mental renunciation or yearning for fleeting sense based joy. A true ethical industrialist while earning millions of dollars could be harboring just thoughts of manifesting well being of society with his hard earned money in a selfless good willed manner. Such a man of vision and integrity will not hurt another’s profession, he/she will not speculate in a gambling manner, he/she will not take undue risks and despite being wealthy owners of property etc will live akin to the philosophy of ‘simple living high thinking’. Despite earning millions of dollars he will see to it that others do not incur a loss and if the need arises he/she might renounce a very lucrative contract if it means obstructing another’s downfall. None should mockingly jeer at this statement of mine saying that ‘it is a figment of my imagination’. It is the world’s good fortune that such visionary businessman/industrialists have been born both in the orient and occident. Of course their number may be small but all the same, the foundation stones of professional ethics and integrity have certainly been laid down by them. Hence it is my contention that even if a handful few such examples exist today we cannot say it is a figment of my wild imagination. I have seen a tailor of such ethics in Badhwaan (Saurashtra, India). I know of such a barber and who does not know about that cloth weaver? On researching deeply into this I found either people conducting business in a selfless service manner or those who did so just for petty and narrow minded selfish gains. It is true that even selfless professionals earn money for their household upkeep too. And yet their sole aim is not this but that their main sight is on working selflessly for world uplifting via their professional pursuits that are ethical in nature. Motilal was a dedicated tailor both before and after attaining enlightenment/self-realization. But his attitude transformed and now post enlightenment/self-realization his tailoring business became a Yajna. Sacredness now enters it. This business all the time delves deep into other peoples’ prosperity and thus art manifests in his/her life. A life of Yajna is the pinnacle of artistic skills. It is full of nectar because the ceaseless stream of divinity is all the time blessing such a person. Man never tires drinking it and the stream of nectar never dries up. That Yajna is definitely not a Yajna which seems burdensome. Anything that agitates one is certainly not renunciation/sacrifice. Sense pleasures are fleeting and destructive. True renunciation results in immortality. Nectar is not something independent in nature and in fact is a part of our wholesome thought process. Someone enjoys cinema on a screen whereas someone else enjoys changes taking place in the vast expanse of the sky. What we mean is that interest is not a matter of education or practice. In childhood certain interests are nurtured and practiced but they are superficial in nature. A particular country and its citizens maybe interested in a particular subject that might totally disinterest another nation and its residents. We come across many such examples of this.

 

Majority of Yajna doers believe that they work selflessly. Hence they think that they can ask anything i.e. even that which is not required from others. As soon as such a thought arises, that person is not a true Yajna performer. In selfless service there is no room for thoughts of ones own comforts and needs. In fact it is Almighty God who looks after the requirements of his beloved selfless worker (Sevak). God will give him/her anything which in his eyes is required at that time. And hence when a true devotee of Yajna is given something he/she should not think it to belong to himself herself. Instead accept only the bare minimum for bodily sustenance and rest should be shared with others as grace of God. Even if a true devotee of Yajna is not given the bare minimum of comforts he/she will endure it calmly without anger or stress. The mind will be perfectly poised and balanced even under the direst situation. The fruit of Yajna is not comfort but it is attaining more opportunities to serve the world that much more selflessly.

http://www.shriramsharma.com/new_page_2.htm

One more important point to note is that the approach to selfless service must not be lackadaisical and hence given a last spot. Just because you are working for others without getting anything in return does not mean ‘I will do it as and when it pleases me to do so’. A person who thinks or behaves thus alas does not know the true principle underlying a Yajna. Selfless service means humbly working to ones full potential and it is given a prime slot in ones day to day living. Anything else is given cursory attention. The gist of all this is that a pure Yajna doer says ‘nothing is mine’ and that he/she sacrifices his/her very being for world welfare in a humble self effacing manner.

CONSCIOUSNESS MUST BE SEARCHED FOR IN THE DEEP CAVE OF THE PSYCHE

CONSCIOUSNESS MUST BE SEARCHED FOR IN THE DEEP CAVE OF THE PSYCHE

http://www.shriramsharma.com/brahmavarchas’_scientific_research_of_spiritual_sciences.htm

 

Everyone executes actions via the body and thinking via their mind. If both remain inactive they start degenerating and can lose their very existence. The level or stature of our actions and thinking is directly the function of the means of daily living procured by us from our incomes. Farsighted people not only look after both these but try and make them more advanced. As a result their stature is much higher than the ordinary man on the streets. Those who follow nature’s law of healthy eating and sleeping habits generally lead a diseased free long life. A student aspiring to become skillful and scholarly studies hard on a regular basis and this intellectual proficiency helps him earn wealth and grandeur. Thus ordinarily this is the periphery within which our bodies and minds are nourished and nurtured.

 

Even after using our potential for our worldly living what remains is gigantic to put it mildly. If only all the aspects of the soul center is given due importance, if special efforts are made to manifest and use them for great tasks man can become the master of such attainments which are infinitely more glorious than all the wealth and grandeur of this external world put together.

 

When in all directions there is frenzied onrush to unearth the unknown and attain that which has eluded us so far why should we not make even greater efforts in unveiling and bloom the external and internal layers of the soul center? Under the subjects of Psychology and Para Psychology some research work has commenced within the realm of man’s psyche. Some very encouraging results have come their way and many conclusions of very good utility value too have been put forth. Despite all this a basic lack can be noticed wherein their research has been limited within the narrow periphery of the anatomical and functional aspect of the human brain. For material science material objects are the ultimate units of this world. Hence these revered scientists unfortunately limit their experiments to unearthing and analyzing the functions of brain cells. With the result they ignore and fail to enter the portals of that field of research which helps us understand the true form of consciousness along with discerning its potential to execute gigantic feats.

 

The body remains alive with the help of means related to eating and resting. The brain is incited by our aspirations and beliefs. In a layman’s life hunger, desires, ego, self protection etc rein over the mind. But the matter does not end here. Beliefs, aspirations and sentiments are independent in the sense it is not influenced by bodily needs and is quite unrelated to the anatomy of brain cells. And yet its potency is so intense that it has the power to turn topsy-turvy our very soul center. In fact many a time we actually see how it can capsize the boat of an ordinary but much needed flow. The bodily requirement of satisfying hunger and thirst is not conjoined to our desperation. This is because our intense faith conjoined to fasts and religious vows (Vratas) can certainly ward of hunger-thirst for a certain time span. Psychologists opine that sexual passion is a material/worldly requirement but even they cannot overlook the great attainments of Brahmacharya (sexual continence for a higher goal). The vow of Brahmacharya not only masters the actual abstinence of the sexual act but that ones previous mediocre thinking is taken to high peaks of greatness. No doubt it is but natural that try to we save ourselves during dire situations and yet many valiant men the world over have given up their bodies with a serene smile on their face. No doubt every bodily part yearns for material comforts and yet great Yogis, saints, sages etc who perform intense austerities do so not only voluntarily but with divine joy writ large over their countenance.

 

Many material psychological conclusions create speed breakers because according to them it is only the mind and body’s anatomy influence man’s thinking. According to them thought flow exists solely to fulfill man’s needs. If this were to be the absolute truth why do great men endure hardships for great tasks and why do they share their attainments with the entire world? Material Psychology’s principles maybe full of logic and facts but know for sure that they are one sided and not all encompassing. This is because the second aspect of Psychology is no less important. It says that sentiments influence our body a great deal and that not only do they control the body but right from practice to creation it is responsible for creating its new mould. Thus a prolific transformation takes place which can be called the miracle of an upward pressure. No doubt needs and habits influence the brain and pressurize it to create desired situations. Despite this the sentimental aspect is not that weak wherein we can ignore it totally. In fact the bare reality is this that our sensitive and sentimental nature is extremely influential. Material Psychology says that the mental make up, mode of action and habits gathered from many past lives pressurize our beliefs which in turn influence our day to day life intensely. Thus comes in the concept of sheer destiny and makes one its dependent. In a certain sense ones basic independence is totally lost because is one is to remain a slave of mental desire based activities why make undue effort of imbibing great thinking and a glorious character? Activities are predominantly ‘animalistic’ in nature. Assuming that destiny via the medium of ones mindset decides lewdness in man’s desires, criminal leanings  or an attacking action for self preservation and anger manifested by the ego man will perforce have to live like a beast. Such negation based principles will definitely hurl man towards a painful downfall.

The spiritual aspect of Psychology has analyzed the psyche on the second basis. It proclaims that the substratum of the soul abounds in greatness but while living a worldly life undesirable activities leave their tainted imprints so as to veil the soul/psyche. Since there is total absence of regular sanctification of the soul tainted desires rule over the psyche and hence the body too acts unwholesomely. This is an unnatural and undesirable state. It can be rectified via scriptural studies, self introspection, associating with realized saints, meditation on the cosmic soul (God) and other modes of mental purification. In this manner our consciousness can regain its lost glory which is its natural state. Apart from this the second proclamation of the spiritual aspect is that the human bodily consciousness harbors within it those seeds of greatness and potency present in Almighty Lord. These seeds can sprout fully into supreme power with the help of various spiritual practices (Sadhana). In this manner consciousness advances more and more so as to ultimately reach the stature of great man, Rishis, gods, Avatars etc.

 

It is only the material aspect of psychological analysis that is being taught in educational institutes of great repute the world over. The intellectual class too agrees with this trend. As a result there is a great lack in Psychology based research and everyone thinks it apt to bow down to destiny like a slave and live the life of a beast. Under such conditions man feels he perforce must live like an animal-man or a bird-man. Hence why would anyone endure the hardship of mental complexes created by ones beastly mindset? Most definitely not only are we giving a green signal to this downfall but by labeling it as ‘natural’ we are supinely surrendering to it. It goes without saying that this type of materialism oriented psychological research has uprooted the very foundation of high ideals and the inclination to aspire for inner greatness. Thus a very fragile world situation has manifested wherein the individual’s and the future of the entire world is staring wide eyed at the jaws of peril.

 

The psychological science of spirituality is bang opposite to the above. At the substratum level consciousness oozes with sheer greatness and this is its most natural state. They further opine that Yoga that purifies our thinking and austerities that uplift our activities not only glorify world humanity but by imbibing divine greatness one can reach the highest peak of soul progress. All this is not just theoretical talk because world history fully agrees with it. Glorious men of the spiritual arena have not only uplifted themselves individually but that from the world standpoint too their contributions have been gigantic. Within Indian culture and tradition those principles that nourish inner greatness have always ruled the roost. As a result greatness abounds right from intellectually brilliant people and social activities. In turn its joyous dividends have been shared with the entire world.

 

While keeping in mind the creation of a bright world future the crying need of the hour is to place before world human beings the unacceptable conclusions of material Psychology that inadvertently encourages animalistic living on the one hand and the apt and utility value of spiritual Psychology. It is with the help of spiritual Psychology that ideals will flow into the thinking of the entire world akin to ancient eras and the result of joyous living will follow suit.

 

It goes without saying that modern research in the field of Psychology has unearthed many facts which say that consciousness at its very roots is greatness manifest. The only error seen is that while describing this fact a lot of illusions have crept in and thus many biased people continue to latch on to lowliness. Today it is most required that dark clouds that have enveloped modern Psychology be dispelled totally and instead create an atmosphere of research that first tries to understand the greatness of consciousness and then finding ways of advancing it sacredly. If a long lasting bright future of the world is to manifest this must be executed in totality. It is well known that the flow and ebb of greatness or mediocrity of philosophical tenets are responsible for wholesome or lowly world activities. Further in order to herald a radiant future all deluded concepts in the field of spirituality too will have to be uprooted and those principles that augment human glory which would benefit mankind both materially and spiritually be encouraged worldwide. In this context if psychological sciences can be researched into again on a new footing those facts and principles will definitely emerge which can raise human glory to that of Satyuga or the Golden Age. These underlying principles doubtlessly exist but what is required is that they be freed from the mesh of deluded concepts. If great world thinkers show willingness to take up this mighty task know for sure that a very new viewpoint of soul wisdom will emerge and its wondrous result will help in neo creation of this era.

 

For this it is not as though quite a lot of things need to be done. The manner in which modern psychologists have depicted the human psyche which gives so much information that assert spiritual aspects that there is no need to disown them. We need to do only this wherein while analyzing modern Psychology experimental findings those biased and prejudiced elements must totally be proved false. This can be done very easily because truth is so invincible that with a little bit of its help one can stand up on ones own after having experienced a fall. In fact a lot of effort is needed to prove falsehood to be truth but certainly not the other way around.

The general aspect of psychological science is thought science. The power of thought is limitless. In fact our life flow is entirely at the mercy of our thought center. Within the human community differences as far as greatness, lowliness and uselessness is perceived. These are the result of our beliefs and reactions of our thought process. To a certain extent the direction of our life depends on the type of atmosphere, contact, advice and desire and yet in the ultimate analysis it is our predominant beliefs that count a great deal. Much before hand our mindset is created on the basis of these beliefs. In this world exist, mountains of goodness and evil. What ever attracts us makes our psyche of that sort too. Whatever is not liked can never enter our mind. A desirable atmosphere, advice and society augment oneness and thus leave imprints behind. And the remnant undesirable element on being ignored returns from where it came.

 

Thoughts give our intellect a direction of cogitation. Where there is a desire its information, mode of attaining it and required means to do so come unasked in our life. Thus in actuality life’s flow is nothing but a manifestation of our thought flow. Lest we fully understand the nature and influence of this great force we would not waste time and effort in changing external situations. Instead our focus will be on purifying our psyche and making it one pointed. This will positively transform our inner personality and thus either external situations become more conducive or that even if they do not change our psyche is so strong that we remain calm and unaffected. What is ironical is that although world humanity uses thought power in a big way yet they are unaware as to how one can keep it well managed and make optimum use of it. It is true that thoughts ‘boss’ over our life yet it is even more true that if our Prajna (divine intellect) awakens it can aptly manage our thought process and help us live a blissful life of both material and spiritual progress. Uplifting and downfall are mere sweet and bitter fruits (reactions) of the tree of thought. In neo creation endeavors efforts to augment comforts and pleasure are given more importance. Despite this, what is more required is that every layman be taught the method of thought purification and transformation. Man indeed is the author of his fate. Within this precept lies the secret of transforming our very thinking so positively that our chariot of life can march ahead on the royal path of advancement and thus touch the highest peak of glory. But if we insist on adhering to vile thinking and lowly activities the result is bound to be stress and pain and the clouds of dire situations will loom large in our life. This is how man plays a role in authoring his fate and hence future.

 

We may make many other kinds of effort so as to uproot dire situations and augment joy and material comforts in our life. And yet it should be noted that along with this it is extremely important that every layman be encouraged to fully imbibe goodness of character and his very thinking. If this aspect is ignored know for sure that all other endeavors will be a sheer waste of time and energy and that our goal will run miles away from us like a mirage in a dessert. Assuming you have become very wealthy despite harboring lowly thinking how do you think you will make wholesome use of it? In fact this very wealth due to tainted thinking will make you perform vile actions (alcohol/drug addiction, illegal actions etc) which will be the cause of your imminent downfall in life. Today it is indeed a sorry state of affairs that the science of thinking which encourages imbibing of great human values lies in an ignored state. There are many elements in society that are known to encourage erroneous beliefs which in turn incite lowly and tainted thinking. And hence it is imperative that this undesirable situation be transformed for the better. The science of thinking must be researched into on a totally new platform. Today’s erroneous thinking that lowliness and criminal tendencies is the only way to amass wealth and fame must be cut asunder from its very roots. How do thoughts based on culture and civility help generate material and spiritual grandeur? How does tainted thinking akin to acid and fire sparks melt your wealth to naught? If these questions are answered with sound logic, rationality and apt scientific proof know for sure that that very tainted thinking which has destroyed world humanity’s peace of mind can be uprooted totally. Instead wholesome thinking will start ruling our psyche and thus true human glory can be ours for a very long time span to come. As a result both material and spiritual bliss will abound in the entire world. It is the duty of great thinkers in the field of Psychology to set up such a strong foundation of principles that augment greatness and thus welcome the advent of a radiant world future in the 21st century.

 

Ahead of this are 2 more legs. The first leg asks the question: How shall we uproot tainted psychic imprints that have gathered from past innumerable births and replace them with sacred ones? The second question is: An abundant storehouse of ESP (EXTRA SENSORY POWER) and great aspirations exists in our psyche and hence how do we activate them and make optimal use of tem for world welfare? These 2 basis need to be unfolded akin to the spiritual aspect of thought science. The roots of psychic taints are generally very deep and powerful. Via scriptural studies we can understand the blissful results of a good character and sorrow which is the result of vile thinking. Despite this it is a very difficult job to transform personalities that latch on like a leech to erroneous beliefs and habits. Neither do tainted actions get destroyed and nor does one agree to imbibe wholesome activities. Under such circumstances our effort to understand and teach others the importance of sacred thinking goes down the drain. Very much akin to this great difficulties are faced when we try to augment our will power and soul force, when we try to awaken latent potentials via focus and mental resolve and making our character extraordinary from its present mediocre state. Simply understanding the deep import of ones mental resolve or will power cannot render it potent. If inner radiance refuses to bloom what is the way in which the psyche can transform totally?

 

In order to augment bodily might one goes to the gym and exercises. In order that ulcers are removed surgery is performed. Radiation therapy is given to cancer patients to destroy malignant cells. Dancers and actors do not acquire their skills ‘by chance’. They undergo rigorous training under their respective guides and masters. Those who are part of a circus troupe are well aware of how various animals like the tiger, lion, elephant etc are given painstaking training so as to induce them to perform various feats. Of course outsiders look upon all this as either god’s grace or a boon from heaven. It just does not matter what the layman thinks or believes because it is a die hard reality that special feats and skills are attained only after undergoing intense efforts. In the same way Sadhana or intense spiritual practice means contacting, diving deep, awakening and manifesting the deep layers of ones psyche. Spiritual practices have their own philosophy and science. The science of thought is used daily in our social transactions and it influences our thought process, activities and character. Its result is self fulfillment, self glory, reverence in the world and cooperation from others. And yet the Science of Sadhana is of a much higher stature than this. Thought science can be correlated to the conscious aspect of the psyche. It can be called a ‘social’ intellect. Deeper than this is the unconscious layer and the deepest is higher consciousness. The activities of the mind and intellect fall under the jurisdiction of the conscious mind, habits are under unconscious mind and aspirations in the higher consciousness. The mind and intellect can be swayed in whatever direction we wish by dangling the carrot of gain or instilling the fear of peril. As against this it is no easy task to transform our aspirations and habits which need great efforts akin to plastic surgery where the old face is replaced by a new one. The upper most region of the earth is full of dust, stones etc. Deeper than this layer exist precious ores, minerals, oil, gas etc. Only those who are valiant enough dig these layers or dive deep into the ocean bed attain these precious materials. On the surface of the ocean one finds frivolous foam formation. Those who dive very deep in the ocean find pearls and other precious stones. Only those who fathom the depths of an atom of dust become masters of atomic energy. In the same way when one dives deep into the inner recesses of the psyche/consciousness one becomes the lord of miraculous powers called Ridhi-Sidhi.

The right direction of human advancement can be attained only if his consciousness is uplifted. The more one marches ahead in this direction the more one will be glorified from the social standpoint too. Great men may never have been agriculturists or traders, maybe they have never been wealthy or leaders yet from the viewpoint of world honor and world welfare tasks they have set such wonderful examples that world denizens can never repay this debt. No doubt lackluster and dodgy opportunities appear in the lives of alcoholics, terrorists etc too so as to attain self fulfillment and glory but that which is real and long lasting is attained by truly great men of the world only. It is fairly clear that from the soul standpoint it is possible only for highly advanced men/women to attain supreme greatness. It s not possible to attain this simply because one is materially very wealthy and prosperous (i.e. greatness cannot be bought). One maybe swimming in the ocean of material comforts and wealth yet it pales into insignificance in the presence of grandeur attained due to inner greatness. Only that individual who is capable enough of understanding this goal accepts that the one and only basis of man’s inner and outer success is advancement of ones consciousness/psyche. Such great souls never have to earn wealth for themselves because the world out of sheer reverence showers it on them and hence they become more wealthy than even the biggest billionaire on planet earth. Great tasks of world well being executed by Gautama Budha, Gandhi, Jesus Christ etc never lacked the aid of material wealth. From the consciousness standpoint all round benefits like glory, deep thinking, radiance and grandeur are accrued by only those whose inner personalities are very advanced. These benefits are so awesome that no amount of material wealth can be compared to it. The wealth of rich people can benefit only their body and family members but the grandeur possessed by truly great personalities bestows self fulfillment on all world beings and those golden times too. Deep thinkers always revere this precept and hence persevere intensely to augment the wealth of soul greatness and thus not only glorify themselves but set an example to others too to follow suit.

 

The inner personality of mankind abounds with divine glory. To the extent one yearns for it to that extent it is attained in a natural manner. Realized saints attain ESP (EXTRA SENSORY POWER) and with this divine vision and energy they serve innumerable beings which are not possible for an ordinary human being. It is well known that in this world only that information and those materials required for life’s sustenance are available. Apart from this that which is extraordinary is shrouded in mystery and it can be unfolded only by those who dive deep into their souls. The mysteries of Mother Nature have been unveiled with intense efforts. The more they were unfolded the more material energy and wealth have been attained in this world. It is only after great perseverance that we are today utilizing the benefits of electricity, steam, radio waves, atomic and other forms of energy. So too human consciousness harbors mysteries veils which if unfolded via intense spiritual practice can make that person a saint who possesses great divine energy and powers. Such powers not only benefit such saints but that the entire world blooms with material and spiritual well being.

 

In ancient times nature’s forces were known but very few people availed its benefits. Ravan, Ahiravan, Hiranyakashipu, Vritrasur etc were akin to scientists who had unearthed the secrets of Mother Nature (Prakriti) and thus availed their benefits. Today’s situation is different. Scientists are unfolding nature’s mysteries and everyone in the world is availing their benefits. The same thing should happen with reference to the mysterious powers of the spiritual arena. Even today very few people benefit from Divine Powers or Sidhis and are called miraculous. This limitation is very much undesirable. The danger of misuse can be witnessed right from a match stick to a high voltage of electric current and yet simply for this reason we do not stop using them. This same principle must be applied to spiritual powers. Instead of keeping them hidden it should be manifested in such a way that every layman too gains benefits. Of course it is another question as to how their misuse can be obstructed. This problem no doubt must be solved but that certainly does not mean that such an infinite storehouse of divine energy be hidden from world and thus disallow the layman from their supreme benefits.

 

Intense research has been carried out by Parapsychology researchers with reference to the true nature and genuineness of ESP (EXTRA SENSORY POWER). They have concluded that man is not just what he ordinarily appears to be. Just like the mysteries of nature the inner cave of man’s soul harbors infinite powers. Man’s body is like a trunk of magical powers. Sometimes when very minor sparks of these manifest, we realize that behind this curtain a mind boggling infinite storehouse of Divine Powers exist. Even today it is not a rare thing to find extraordinary people with brilliant capabilities (art, music, mathematics etc). And yet we remain like a ‘doubting Thomas’. But facts are facts. This is because when thousand times using thousand methods of testing so as to ward off our delusion truth remains the truth we can then not say that all this is false just because the human intellect and modern scientific experimentation cannot ‘prove’ the existence of these Divine Powers.

 

Today we are living in that era where not only is the existence of ESP (EXTRA SENSORY POWER) thought to be irrational but that people the world over have commenced developing immense faith in their potency. And yet one must not remain contented by saying they are mysterious, strange and those that give goose bumps. Especially since there lies great hope in the belief that man on mastering these divine potentials will become even more ‘wealthy and well to do’ when compared to his owning material wealth like property, cars, palatial homes etc. Possibilities of this sort are extremely alluring. In order that every world layman avails them it is most required that these divine secrets be unveiled which have their basis in ESP (EXTRA SENSORY POWER). Not only has modern science given us the utility based applications of electricity but have also themselves unfolded its nature, basis and flow and given its understanding to laymen too. The true description of any fact must encompass both its principle and form. If our widespread aim is making world humanity aware of these ESP (EXTRA SENSORY POWER) and their benefits it is imperative that we unearth the all encompassing philosophy and basis of ESP (EXTRA SENSORY POWER). It is a fact that in ancient eras Spiritual Science existed in a very advanced state but alas today it lies in a state of total delusion. Even those who in the name of being spiritual seekers flaunt deluded spiritual beliefs are totally unaware of true spiritual principles.

 

What is required is that not only do people become well versed with ESP (EXTRA SENSORY POWER) and their stupendous benefits but that all round knowledge in this arena be unfolded especially as far as its designing, mode of functioning, rise and fall and the dos and don’ts is concerned. Further a firm conclusion should be drawn regarding what is the state of these unknown powers along with their potential? What are the underlying principles in their manifestation and application and what are the methods/means used for the same? In today’s research arena this aspect must be given a lot of importance. The more the mysterious layers of this material cosmos unfolds and made use of optimally more is mankind attaining wealth and might. And yet it is a fact that in comparison to material forces the potency of Divine Powers that reside in human consciousness is infinitely more both qualitatively and quantitatively. Since scientific research is the in thing today why limit this endeavor to the material realm only? Why should we refrain from entering the field of consciousness that encompasses so many wonderful mysteries? These conscious forces are not only n-fold more powerful than material forces unearthed so far but that the former can give us supreme benefits both in the material and spiritual realm. This realm has been ignored simply because modern material science fails to accept its authenticity. But today the circumstances have changed a fair bit. Facts have proved that man is not a living being but an unlimited powerhouse of secret potentials. Hence it becomes imperative that well planned research be undertaken so as to unveil these mysterious conscious powers. Success in this endeavor doubtlessly will make man’s stature and glory supreme since new portals will open up and substratum will be laid down.
