What is new



SriRamchandraji Maharaj says in his Paris declaration that, "Co-operation is the life of coming events". Fraternity has always been elusive over the course of human civilisations. The three spiritual values liberty, equality and fraternity have been unfortunately brought down to the secular level and brotherhood as a result remains elusive.

My Revered father Sri. K.C.Narayana explains in this book, a compilation of the talks given during various training programs, in a manner leaving no doubt in the minds of the readers that spirituality alone is capable of making us live upto the level of this particular standard of fraternity and that is possible only when you know your common origin and this common origin can be known only in your heart, not elsewhere.

He goes on to explain that only when this common origin is known, the implementation of values of service, sacrifice, tolerance, maitri is possible.

One thing we notice in most of the talks is the various angles one can look at the system. Sri. K.C.Narayana presents a comprehensive view of the system in every topic and this is found as a unique feature of this compilation. The emphasis on co-operation, interdependence is something that he stresses on in every talk time and again. The first talk on 'Introduction to PAM' highlights the various states of mind, the truth of interdependency, the sahajeevana concept, how and why to meditate, the stress on points 'A' and 'B', the value of Pranahuti and Prayer.

The second talk on 'Meditation' explains the way to meditate and also explains the various states of mind that are there during meditation and to which plane they relate.

The third talk on 'Control of Mind' talks about determination, the need for a sankalpa, and the attitude to be adopted while meditating stressing also on the qualities of service, sacrifice, love and interdependence.

The fourth talk on 'Pranahuti' explains the uniqueness of the system of SriRamchandra. The concept of Pranahuti, it's origin and its role in the sadhana of the abhyasi, who can do Pranahuti, what happens when it is done and other aspects are explained in much detail.

The fifth talk on 'Efficacy of Rajayoga' makes it clear that the efficacy of the system is in two things - the imperative need for self effort of the aspirant and the support of the Master throughout our progress. The help of the Pranahuti along with the meditations on the points A and B in controlling the urges which further lead to development of higher values of aspiration, sharing, sacrifice, sat-asat viveka is also explained in detail.

In the sixth talk on 'Way of Living - SriRamchandra's Commandments', Sri K.C.Narayana explains the need to get back to the fundamentals of being with Nature. Each of the commandments is elaborated in detail The explanation on the 9th commandment where he says 'We should live in such a way that other person develops love towards God because love towards God means love towards all' puts it in very unambiguous terms as to what the purpose of our lives is.

'Stages of progress', the seventh talk in this series takes us along the various psychological states that develop as one starts moving in this system. There is a small discourse on the topic 'determination' at the end the talk, which has personally been illumining to me, and I wish and pray that the same would be the case for other readers also.

The eight talk on 'Meditational practices' is about meditation, the cleaning process and prayer apart from the universal prayer that is to be done at 9:00 p.m. The concepts of mala, vikshepa and avarana are dealt in detail while explaining the cleaning process.

The ninth talk on 'Diary writing' highlights the necessity of writing a diary, the necessity to note the experiences, the lapses in sadhana. Such sentences as 'If you don't learn your alphabets properly, I am sure you are not going to understand any literature. So also if you do not know how to write diary and if you don't start writing diary, the chances are that you will miss the finer aspects of your sadhana' drive home the point the need to write the diary in this talk. The section on prayer also puts it in a very candid way as to how prayer is done by the majority, as also how it is supposed to be done.

The last talk on 'Introductory sittings' talks about the process of introduction as well as the various states one goes through by the help of the Master in this path.

I wish to share a small couplet that was felt during one of the meditations upon the completion of the work.

'Forgiveness is the gift to be given to all.
It is not done since the heart is small.
For the heart to encompass all,
Love Him who loves All'

It is with a feeling of deep gratitude that this work is placed at feet of the masters.
