Pranahuti regulates the tendencies of mind - Sahaj Marg
The revered Master Sri Rama Chandraji Maharaj says that spiritual training for the attainment of higher stages is only possible from the process of 'Pranahuti' (Yogic transmission) and by no other means.
Emphasizing the importance of 'Pranahuti', is because the superior power of Master combined with self effort reinforces the spiritual progress. Besides this, in this path our consciousness of self effort remains subdued and never promotes the feeling of ‘Ahankara’ (Ego) and ‘Pride’, which often influence the worshippers following the grosser mechanical methods.
The power of transmission is a yogic attainment of a very high order by which a 'Yogi' can infuse by his will power the yogic energy or Godly effulgence on anyone, and removes anything unwanted in him or detrimental to his spiritual progress. He can exercise the power not only on those assembled around him, but also on those who are away from him.
Pranahuti is brought into effect through the power of will which is always effective. If a trainer in spirituality (Preceptor) exerts his will to mould the mind of the trainee, it will yield effective and excellent results. The worthy trainer, with the power of yogic transmission, weakens the lower tendencies of the mind of the trainee and sows the seed of Divine light in the inner most core of the heart.
The trainee may not feel anything at the beginning. The reason is that he is accustomed to feel only through the senses and the divine power is beyond senses. After sometime, however, he may feel the results of such transmission, which also are in the form of subtle changes of the working of his vital parts and of the tendencies of his mind. The power of pranahuti is a divine power working through the channel of pure mind.
