What is new



It was a few months ago, that fortune favoured me with a copy of the second edition of the book 'Towards Infinity' published in 1970. It is a small book of about 50 pages. If we look at the book 'PATH OF GRACE' that has come out in the year 2006 expounding the various conditions and states, it gives an idea of the amount of research that has been put into it. The title of Bashyakar given to Sri Ramanuja for his expounding of the system of SriVaishnavism, is equally applicable to Sri. Rev. K.C.Narayana who has expounded the system of Rev.SriRamchandraji Maharaj of Shahjahanpur, U.P., India.

If the Path of Grace gave us an idea as to the conditions experienced in the path, the satyapada sopanamu is a more detailed insight into these conditions and has a certain amount of granularity giving us more detail so as to understand the conditions better. If the conditions given in the book and in the tables of the appendix are to be understood more thoroughly, these notes have to be read and imbibed.

The book has notes on 143 cells. Of these, notes till 110 give us insights into the various psychological conditions from the 1st to 5th knots. The notes from 111 to 143 deal with the conditions of Brahmand, Para Brahmand, Prapanna, Prapanna Prabhu and higher.

It becomes very clear that there are various progressions and regressions in the path and it is the gurukrupa alone that keeps one steady on the path. It is a 'Path of Grace' is what needs to be understood. Even as early as the stage of cell 15, it becomes invariably necessary for the gurukrupa which takes us along afterwards. That is reason why Rev. SriRamchandraji Maharaj tells us that most people have not moved beyond that stage. There is a saying 'the higher you go, the steeper you fall'. As such, one's dependence on the gurukrupa to keep steady on the path is of even more importance, since the mistakes done at higher stages are dealt with more severely.

In the letter dated 22-10-1979 to Sri. K.C.Narayana, the Master wrote "You know Narayana that I have done whatever the need was for the spiritual life of man and the work is still continued. The system is there, my support is there, yet it is for the persons like you to first educate abhyasis and then do further research. I have great hope from you."

Towards this blessing of the Master, Sri. K.C.Narayana has been putting all his efforts relentlessly and the results are very clearly visible to us.

During the discussions of the game of life, Sri. K.C.Narayana has expressed that this work is a work in progress and that it should not stop like the traditional paramapada sopana patamu. It is hoped that aspirants take his words seriously and start girding up their loins to assist him towards the goal of the Master.
