Nilima Pandit marked it as to-read Oct 21, It will therefore be seen that the only true and effective way of knowing the Vedas is through Gayatri or any other means which brings about this progressive unfoldmerit of our consciousness. The light which comes out of the outermost globe is derived from and is an expression of the innermost light of the bulb but it is a very limited expression and can hardly give any idea regarding the brilliant and pure white light which is hidden at the centre.

There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Apart from the fact that the greater part of the Vedas as they once existed has been lost and we are left only with a remnant, even the whole and unmutilated Vedas as they no doubt once existed could never represent the true Veda which by its very nature cannot be contained in any number or kind of books.

Gayatri : I K Taimni :

It begins with the repetition of the mantra mentally, the mind being conscious only of the sounds produced. So here wc have a remarkable illustration of the same tattva working at its highest as well as lowest level and both the functions being utilized in the same mantra! For example, many sadhakas on beginning sadhana of any kind expect to see visions and things of that kind. It is to be noted that it is he who puts in the energy taimnj both these processes.

In studying any subject of profound significance we have to consider its various aspects from different points of view in order to get an adequate grasp of the subject as a whole. As regards the first factor, namely, the alloys of which the wires are made one can see at once that this counts a great deal. Some of this literature has still some value because it elaborates and serves to explain to some extent the primary truths.

It is only in the earlier stages that japa in its usual meaning is used on the path of Mantra Yoga. Want to Read saving…. If the desires draw the sadhaka in different directions, 1 12 GAYATRI if the intuition does not approve of what the mind decides, there is bound to be inner conflict and disharmony and his mind would be like a chariot whose horses draw it in different directions.


We shall consider here the essential nature of Gayatri Devi or that Power which is invoked in Gayatri upasana and japa. The second is the idea which is independent of the words or meanings. Broadly, therefore, gayatri may be taken as the metre of the mantra as a whole.

The process of Self-realization will thus be seen to be a gradual stepping up of our own consciousness to meet the consciousness of the Solar Logos as it is reflected in the progressively subtler worlds existing within the solar system.

Just as the physical Sun is an orb of incandescent gases but it is surrounded by an aura of light of decreasing intensity, in the same way the Spiritual Sun is the very core of the Spiritual Consciousness but that Spiritual Consciousness is stepped down in the various lokas or planes which, as it were, constitute His vehicles.

It is not an ordinary mantra with a limited objective and scope. Our main purpose in dealing with taimnii is to try to obtain a glimpse into their inner significance.

Anyway, we are not concerned with these questions just now. It will be seen from what has been said above that only great Occultists and Adepts before whose inner vision the subtler planes of our solar system lie like an open book can construct mantras. Nor must we forget that every individual soul is unique and has his own unique way of reaching the common goal. And lastly, they bring out clearly that in finding this Reality within himself the sadhaka can invoke the Reality hidden behind the Sun, and through the help which he gets from this Supreme Source of spiritual illumination make his task of Self-discovery easier.

The sadhaka has to develop this sense of awareness and nearness to these subtler things and not merely to believe in them half-heartedly and theoretically. But the progress of Science, especially of physics and chemistry during this century, has corroborated this doctrine almost fully in a very unexpected manner.

It is true that where the element of devotion is strong and there is earnest effort to taomni the life considerable progress can gaatri made even gayatr understanding much about taimhi theory of japa.

It is only under these conditions that the forces can flow freely into his vehicles and prepare his mind for spiritual illumination. The emotional element in man gaatri find free play and this tends to neutralize the rather damping effect of a mere dry mechanical repetition with which the sadhaka begins his japa.

A gayatti who comes into a house to repair an electric fan can handle an ordinary job without any difficulty but as his knowledge is empirical and limited he cannot tackle big and complicated problems involving the use of electricity. So the whole manifested universe will be seen to be an interplay of these three basic realities of existence which cannot be separated normally.
