Purity, Divinity, Sattva – Enlightenment’s Key Ingredient

The three elemental components of relative life are motion, persistence, and purity, also known as the three gunas of rajas, tamas, and sattva. Sattva is a natural and balanced component of every living thing, providing the silent guidance and creative intelligence of Divinity.

As human beings we are in a unique cosmic position, interpolated between animal life and Divinity (sattva). According to records from the Veda [the complete cosmic mandala of cognition from human masters of consciousness], most of the long chain of human life is lived with a collective experience of sattva, guiding life easily on its way to eternal fulfillment. It is a cyclical process over eons, the percentage of humanity’s collective sattva rising and falling throughout time.

A brief period of maximum opportunity occurs in this cycle and goes by the name of Kali Yuga (also conforming to the Brahmanic model of Perishable Brahman), reflecting nearly zero percent of collective sattva in human consciousness on earth.

During this period of human life on earth, sattva still exists as it always has cosmically, only we have largely lost the memory of it, and the techniques to re-establish the link to Divinity. Life descends, driven by superficial activity and persistence, with Divinity crucified.

The world continues to descend to a point of greater darkness, until this time around, publicly and dramatically signaled by the New York Times in the 1960’s as, “God is dead”. Then, all at once, Divinity revives itself on earth, and the entire pathway to enlightenment, eternal fulfillment, is reborn in all its simplicity, dynamism, and depth.

This is our current reality for the last 60 or 70 years, re-integrating sattva again into our world, into humanity, by example. The masters who delivered this revival of Vedic knowledge globally are Sri Brahmananda Saraswati and His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

The value of their service is incalculable, and it should be for it follows directly the principle of divine grace, an endless bounty of giving. By providing the techniques of TM and TM-Siddhis, each of us is given the direct ability to invest sattva, Divinity, directly into our lives. First by awakening ourselves to the Absolute unchanging foundation of life (Imperishable Brahman), next by recognizing the complete attributes of Divinity (the six divine gunas) as the lifeblood of the Absolute (Supreme Brahman).

Maharishi’s techniques by enlivening the Absolute unchanging attributes of Divinity within the cosmic silence, bring us face to face with God. All that is left is for us to recognize this. With this last step, following the higher states of consciousness of CC, GC and UC, we can move rapidly towards this realization of eternal fulfillment; Supreme Brahman.
“…Now, open the eyes…” 😊
