Subtlest Means

The time has come that the man is awakened to the need of Spirituality.  The force of Creation has created  outward tendencies in man.  That is why in course of time, he has created several worlds which has resulted in making him complex. The present imperfect state of mind is the result of his own doings. Unfortunately, the basic fact that God is simple and can be achieved by simple means is lost sight of.  It has been preached from almost all platforms that realisation  of the Absolute(God) is beyond the capacity of the common man.  This mistaken notion, prompted by self styled gurus, has settled down in almost everybody's heart, and today they have even lost the craving for higher aspirations. 



The  common man has as much right and capacity to realise God as those sitting in the hierarchy of religion, rather more.  What is needed is a correct and natural path followed with complete devotion. Sahaj Marg urges upon people to realise this simple truth and apply it in their routine of life. 


God is the Subtlest Being, and in order to realise Him the subtlest means are the only way. This does not mean that for realising God one has to ignore the needs of physical body or empirical world.  If perchance we fall upon the means which go on adding grossness we shall definitely remain away from the Vision of Absolute Reality.  It is an established fact that meditation is a subtle method provided the object of meditation is not concrete. That is why, under Sahaj Marg, we advice to meditate supposing the presence of Divine Light in the heart. The Upanishads also corroborate this.  This practice, supported by the transmission of the Divine Effulgence, becomes subtler and subtler until it becomes the subtlest. 

The job of the teacher is the component factor in weaving the destiny of man's life.  It is a fact beyond doubt that an abhyasi cannot go above by his own effort after a certain level of improvement because he comes in contact with the subtle force which he cannot cross.  In the lower stages also, it becomes difficult if he proceeds by his own effort.  The human consciousness is there which only he is aware of.  He is to go into the Divine Consciousness one after the other, which will ultimately lead him to the Goal. 

It is our sad tale that we do not even think of Divinity in its real state because we have not yet created the environment of that type.  We go backward to darkness instead of going face to face with Light and we boast of it. So we remain far away from Reality.  We do not want to listen, even if these things are brought to our view because we have lost the power of discrimination, affected by the present environment, created by ungodly god-persons. Things will change if humanity is to rise--and humanity has to rise--whether it may be by the lash of time or by experience which will take sometime.

Natural Path

The system promulgated by the Mission is known as Sahaj Marg, or the Natural Path of Realisation of the One, the Ultimate.  Unfortunately, the realisation of the Absolute has so far been thought to be the hardest job almost beyond the capacity of a common man.  This mistaken notion prompted by the misplaced teachings and preachings of the so-called leaders of religion, has so deeply settled down in almost every heart that the very craving for higher aspiration seems to have died out therefrom. 

God is simple and can be achieved by simple means.  This is what Sahaj Marg stands for and presents to the world.  The purpose of the Mission  is served if people begin to realise this simple truth and apply it in their daily routine of life. 

 As a matter of fact, the very simplicity of Nature is in itself the veil which serves as an impediment in the way of our progress.  Under the SahajMarg System, this toilsome task is accomplished very easily by the help and support of the preceptor, through the Yogic process of Pranahuti or transmission.  Yoga begins to settle down when the impressions caused by our thoughts and actions begin to be wiped off from our mind.  Sahaj Marg proceeds on with it from the very beginning. 

To know more about Sahaj Marg, Pranahuti, Preceptor, Realisation etc., the readers are requested to see the other spiritual articles in this web site.

Role of Nature

We should do our duty to uplift Mankind, not minding whether they are doing their duty towards us properly.  We believe that it is the highest moral which we should achieve,  though   with some troubles and sacrifices on our part. This is a part of saintliness.  When we work, it is but natural that some hurdles are also there.  Gradually they diminish. There are good people  everywhere hankering for Him. If we do service, success will surely  dawn. Blessed are those who have a glimpse of Divinity, even though it may be momentary.

 In the Sahaj Marg System, very higher things sometimes come even in the lower stages.  That means Nature is fomenting one with fire of devotion. Cold and heat are almost the same but with a little difference.  The lower part of it is heat, because weightless weight is there above it. If both naturalise, that is the real realisation.  So, only remove the weight and you will find no density.  Air is dense when it is touching the earthly substance. If that touching is gone, you will feel equality in all matters. Nature opens one hand and not two at the same time. If there is cold at one place the hot wave is nearby.  This thing is going on from the time immemorial.  It is the wisdom of the human being to make use of these things in His favour.  We are a part of the cycle of this Existence or, in plain words, we are a part of nature. We should abide by Nature and not try to beat Nature. If all things are changed to co-operate with Nature, balance develops, and that is what we want.  This balance is developed by abhyas.

When the idea is there, action comes as its result.  If meaning is there, words are also there.  When you dilapidate all these, reality begins to dawn, till it grows to its full length giving fruits and flowers.  Merging, of course, is the chief thing which is bestowed upon the simple being, and a simple man is He who knows nothing about himself.  Longing for Reality brings a person to the right path.It gives a new life to the sleeping condition of a man and prepares him for the highest approach reserved for human beings. Not only that, it transforms the whole  being, shattering all obstacles in the way of progress.  The true meaning of Realisation is "Death of Death" or "End of End".  If a man is absorbed in this condition, it means the way is clear now.

Wish and pray that all of us, rather the whole of Humanity may have the tasteless taste of the Reality and that also at the earliest, but for that we  will have to strive hard.  May He give us the strength to do it.
