Review of the Sant Mat Book: The Inward Journey of the Soul


Review of the Sant Mat Book: The Inward Journey of the Soul





As with the earlier publications, Harmony Of All Religions (Sarvadharma Samanvy), by Beloved Swami Santsevi Ji Maharaj, and Philosophy Of Liberation (Moksha Darshan), by Sant Maharshi Mehi Paramhans, with this new book, The Inward Journey of the Soul by Swami Vyasanand Ji Maharaj, I am learning new things about the teachings of the Sants of India, and am grateful to be able to access this advanced wisdom. It is indeed an impressive book providing much needed depth and detail about Sant Mat principals as well as meditation practice. It makes a huge contribution to understanding this Path more clearly, which is especially necessary for Westerners interested in the Sant tradition, not being fluent in Hindi, to fill in the lacuna or blanks in our understanding. As with the NASA space probes encountering distant worlds -- planets and moons, transforming fuzzy objects into clear view, revealing surface features with sharp resolution, as a result of encountering this book, may spiritual seekers and satsangis around the world come away with a much clearer understanding of the teachings of the Masters.

Jai Guru,

Mystic Verses and Music of Maharshi Mehi Paramhans


Look Not in the Five Directions. Look Instead Ahead in the Centre of the Sixth! Mystic Verses of Maharshi Mehi Paramhans Ji Maharaj





Discard looking in any of the five directions -- downwards, upwards, to the right, left and rear
And still your sight at a point in the centre of the sixth direction (i.e. in the front).

Fly ahead in the inner firmament [sky] like a bird through the Radiant Point that appears (as a result of your focused gaze).

Swim upstream from there like a fish, clasping the myriads of Sounds that are perceived (in that Light).

Thus, assuming styles of both the bird as well as the fish, travel on and on, O Mind, an endearing friend that you are!

The mind thus grows indifferent (towards worldly objects) and the soul ascends to perceive the Primordial Udgitha Sound
Also known as Sfoṭa, Om, Sat Dhvani, Praṇava, Unbroken/Incessant Sound, etc...
Which is reverberating very loudly, hidden in the Domain of Sound.

Move ahead from one Sound to another till you catch the Quintessential, True Praṇava Sound.
Holding onto this Unique Om or Sat Naam Sound, swim across the ocean of existence.

-- Quoted in the E Book, Yoga of Inner Light and Sound, by Swami Achyutanand Baba:

In Praise of the Master

Sung by Madhulata Arya

Excerpts of Some Verses from This Hymn in English

I bow again and again to the embodiment of unending devotion, kindliness,
The store-house of Divine knowledge beyond worldly wisdom;

And the treasure-house of splendid thoughts,
Extremely forgiving, forbearing, profound in knowledge,
And maintaining the equipoise of mind during conflict and confusion,

The very life-force of devotees, giving them endless sympathy,
I bow to the Satguru, the giver knowledge and magnificent Lord;
I bow to him, I bow to him, I bow to him, I bow to him;

Eliminating worldly catastrophes, turmoil, and the maze of mundane deeds;
Shattering all earthly aspirations and disseminating deep knowledge,

He is the one who helps see the inner Light Divine,
Extremely accommodating and indifferent to sensualities,
Free from mental abnormalities and enjoying absolute peace;

I bow again and again to the Quintessential One, the Lord,
Converting disciples to His nature,
Extracting the poison of sensualities from the mind;

Satguru is the treasure house of highest bliss, granting contentment and peace,
Bestowing all the virtues and destroying the great fears and delusions,
As he assumes the magnetic human personality;

I bow to Satguru, the very embodiment of truth and righteousness,

I salute You, O beneficent Satguru (True Guru), the fount of unfathomable wisdom,
vast treasure of intelligence; to know the Unknowable you impart needed perfection.
 
The life-breath of devotees, boundless ocean abounding in compassion.
 
To the True Guru adored by all, I bow down,
bow down, bow down, bow down, to thee I bow down.
 
Giver of total peace, most venerable,
truly helpful in inner ascension.
 
I prostrate to the transforming Lord-Satguru,
bow down, bow down, bow down, to thee I bow down. 
 
You infuse perfect tranquillity and all noble virtues,
mastering a magnetic persona; you drive away fears bred by infatuation.
 
The family of senses is like snakes with venom lethal,
you, O True Guru, render them poison less like a mighty falcon.
 
For the thick dark night of illusion,
the Satguru's words are like powerful beams of the Sun.
 
I bow down, says Mehi, to the Perfect Guru,
bow down, bow down, bow down, to thee I bow down.
