हम मंदिर में दीप प्रज्वलित क्यों करते है? घंटियाँ क्यों बजाते है? सभी धार्मिक ग्रन्थों में नाम की महिमा है, वह आदिनाम क्या है? अमृत जल वह क्या है?.. यह चारों पदार्थ जिसे हनुमान चालीसा में- बरनऊँ रघुबर बिमल जसु जो दायकु फल चारि। यही चारों पदार्थ ब्रह्मज्ञान की दीक्षा के समय सद्गुरु प्रदान करते है। ईश्वर हमारे भीतर ही है-'शरीरं मंदिरं'। बाहर जो धर्म के नाम पर संकेत है वह हमारे मार्ग प्रशस्त करने के लिए है।
Brahm Gyan is the immediate and direct perception of the Inner Self (Soul/Atman - Particle of Parmatman) at the very moment of initiation. In spiritual parlance, it is the process of seeing and realising the True Self (Atman) within the human body through the subtle faculty of Third Eye (Divine Eye). The process of initiation into Brahm Gyan necessarily entails supra-sensorial perceptions of the inner-world in the form of Divine Light, Divine Music, Holy Name and Holy Nectar which are indications of the authenticity of the Divine Knowledge – Brahm Gyan and the Perfect Spiritual Master:
It is verily the elemental form of the Inner Self (Atman), which, in its resplendent light form, pervades our inner core. It is often called as light of consciousness and is recognised by almost all religious faiths of the world, though by different names such as prakash, jyoti, noor etc.
It is the eternal music ever reverberating within; also called as the 'Anhad Naad'. Endorsement of musical instruments, bells or chimes by different religious places symbolizes the same.
It is the Primordial Vibration manifested in the Universe as cosmic pulse. It is the lifeline of all existence on Earth, flowing within our prana- the vital breaths, often called as naam or shabad or word in different religious faiths.
It is the ultimate elixir percolating from centre of our head – Brahm Randra – the thousand-petalled lotus. The presence of water body inside the religious places or its dissemination from the altar as holy water in diverse religious faiths signifies the same symbolism.
It is the experience of these noble truths that has been eulogised as Brahm Gyan (Divine Knowledge) in our scriptures.
Brahm Gyan- The Genesis of Transformation
When a person gets initiated into the eternal science of Self Realisation, Brahm Gyan, he becomes equipped with the art of practically perceiving the light of his inner conscience. This results in a total transformation in his mindset. How? It can be understood in the language of both, science as well as metaphysics.
Scientifically, as has been revealed through several research findings, when a person is initiated into the technique of inner-self awakening through meditation, his pineal gland becomes activated. This activation results in the secretion of endorphin, serotonin and melatonin hormones in him. The direct and immediate consequence of this secretion is the inculcation of positive thoughts or vibrations within an individual, subsequently alchemising his personality into a new and a positive one.
In the metaphysical parlance, in the topmost part of our head, there exists a subtle cosmic plane, also termed as the 'antarakashaha' or the 'inner sky'. On being initiated into the eternal science of Self-realisation through Brahm Gyan, the Supreme Consciousness of the aspirant awakens. It is similar to the rising of the sun of inner conscience in the inner sky or the subtle cosmic space in our being. When this happens, parallel to the water-vapour analogy, a total phase-shift occurs in the mental tendencies, proclivities, and thoughts on the whole. Instead of tracing the course of downfall or negativity, they tend to become subtler and finer, thus rising up towards the higher realm of positivity and goodness. Result? A metamorphosed personality, with positive mindset and, therefore, positive thoughts! This transformation can also be represented through the following intersection model:
When an aspirant meditates on the light of inner conscience, his thoughts and mental proclivities begin to fall in the ambit of awakened consciousness, thus becoming deluged with positivity and wisdom.
This transformed and positive unit thus becomes perfectly eligible to play a pivotal role in bringing a revolution in the world.
On these grounds, Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji is today bringing a change in the world by bringing reformation in each and every individual by the dissemination of Brahm Gyan (Divine Knowledge). And, thus clears the litmus test of being a Perfect Saint.
