is to bring enlightenment in the darkness of the self. All practices described
in this book aim at bringing light by self-realization. The lineation
towards Yoga depends on one's Sanskara. In fact parents, sisters and brothers,
religious company and the grace of the Master, all depend on 'Sanskars'.

The practices must be selected according to the ultimate aim. The devotee
must practice these yogic practices but always keeping in mind that the
order of the Master is supreme. One should surrender unto the Master and
Keep on analyzing his own actions. Actions have been clarified as 'Akarma'
(Without any motive), Sukarma (Good Acts), Vikarma (Bad Motive) and Nishkarma
(Without any self motive) etc.
The accumulation of good deeds results in the preponderance of 'Satva
attributes'. The Satva attributes provide perfection to Yoga. Its colour
is pure white and is unblemished by any dots or clouds and lines and is
uniformly white. The light of 'Satva' attributely pure, devioid of any
blemishes and is tranquil. It has no other colour and form in it. This
vision is attained only is Samadhi. During 'Samadhi' the aspirant becomes
oblivious of his separate existence and establishes a unison with Brahma,
and becomes immersed in the divine existence. It is very important to
attain this state in Yoga. This world is made up of animate and inanimate
objects. The best use of this physical body is that Sadhaka attain divine
consciousness. Body is made up of five gross elements-sensory and motor
organs and mans etc. These things have infact blanketed the divine light
like clouds blocking the sun's rays. These clouds are unlimited bad 'Sanskaras'
which are on their removal and the pure unblemished light is visualized
by the perfection of the Yoga. The ego of the self which has separated
the being from the divine vanishes. The master and the subtle body are
responsible for providing success to the aspirant during these yogic practices.
It is useless to wish success in yogic practices without the knowledge
of the subtle body. It is the subtle body which appreciates the primordial
sound Nada, the seed mantras, the vision of the deities and mantras and
Brahman Randhra. It is therefore very essential for the aspirant for the
aspirant to be conversant with the subtle anatomy of the body and the
This anatomical knowledge reveals the importance and utility of prana
automatically. It is the pranic force which creates these Tatvas, organs
of the body. Sensory and motor perceptive elements and the subtle body.
Each particle of the prana circulates through each and every part of the
body and keep on providing energy. Through the medium of Yogic practices
the prana praticles strike each other genesis to light, sound and energry.
The prana force is divided into various forms by various practices. This
form bestows ecstasy to Manas, Buddhi, and Chitta and takes him towards
'Kaivalya' where the experience and the observer attain unison with the
experience or vision. This liberates the sadhaka from the bondage of karma.
Thus the spiritual practice of prana is of prime importance for the attainment
of Kaivalya. The atoms of bad sanskars influence the pure and unblemished
form of prana and forces the phenomenon of life and death to occur. The
practices of Prana, Grace of the Master, remembrance of Rishis and Munis
and the memory of ancestors multiplies the effects of Akarmas i. e. bad
sanakars. Early morning practices also provide desired results quickly
because the purity of the atmosphere and the sun rays eliminate the bad
sanakaras. This should not be doubted. The seven colours of the rays of
the sun are also visualized in different psychic force centers of the
body. The perfect knowledge of these colours provide the easy success
to the knowledge of these psychic centres and tatwas and the aspirant
is absorbed in the practice of BRAHMANDA.
It is the will of the Sadhaka which provides entry into the BRAHMANDA.
The practice can be performed of millions of years. An example of this
are the practices of samadhi. The sadhaka merges into God by a break-through
in the BRAHMANDA, which is provided by the grace of the Master. The main
aim therefore is to realize the point of BRAHMA RANDHRA. The sadhaka has
to face lot of difficulties for attaining it. The main obstacles are the
absence of the Master's grace and the sense organs. If one is firm and
has faith in God then one may not have to face these difficulties for
the all pervading God form of the master within one's ownself shall show
light on the path and eliminates the obstacles. This will only be experienced
once the subtle body is made active. Keeping in observance with the laws
of nature the atoms of the Master get mixed up with the creative atoms
of the being. The pious deeds of the aspirant result in the development
of these atoms of the master. These atoms situated in the Antaha karna
i. e. self can be visualized in various ways. Bhairava Ganesh, Ram Krishna,
Gayatri etc. are the atoms of the master born along with the being for
benediction. This is absolute truth. The one who makes the being contact
with these atoms of the God form of the master can be a devotee, Yogi.
Scriptures are the external forms of the Master and one should not treat
them as different entities for the creation of each being is a almost
similar but have different modifications of mind depending upon karmas.
A devotee or a yogi has to carry out his worldly activities as well for
being made up of five elements the worldly life can not be given up. Hunger,
thirst, happiness, sorrow, respect and deshonour is generally experienced
in life and a sadhaka is no exception. The sadhaka however experiences
less anguish as compared to others because of spiritual experience. The
perfect yogins detach themselves from worldly activities and remain immersed
in BRAHMA. This state however is attained by some very fortunate ones.
The sadhaka is free to practice either by the order of the master of pursuing
his own will. There is no age bar for it. The only precondition is a healthy
energetic body. A Solitary place for yogic practice is an absolute necessity.
Perfection of even a single yogic practice does provide, may be minimal
experience of the self. During these practices the aspirant should only
proceed towards BRAHMANDA, otherwise he or she will be sorry. By practice
limited knowledge is attained first but if the practices are constantly
carried (For a couple of years) out of this limited knowledge one can
attain greater magnitudes - the realization of BHARMA. The worldly difficulties
not make sadhaka nervous and neither one should contemplate their non-existence.
Yogic practices should be carried out only for emancipation and not for
temporal gain otherwise the yogi shall get caught in the wheel of life
