Publisher’s Note

Brahmarshi Yogeshwaranand Paramahans has written this unique treatise “SCIENCE OF VITAL FORCES” for the benefit of the people in general. No learned teaches or expert has so far gives this knowledge about prana in such a depth and detail. We are all indebted to him for the invaluable knowledge he has made available to us. The brilliance, depth and subtlety of this knowledge is awe-inspiring. We cannot help appreciating the research carried out in this subject. Now all the people will be able to attain self-and Brahma-realisation by the touch of prana.

This is the fifth book written by Maharajshri. All the earlier books written by him are on the topics of yoga and spiritual knowledge. Each book contains rare, scientific knowledge and a unique method of presentation. In each book the subject-matter has been treated, from the beginning to the end, in a logical manner.

In the present work, methods and techniques of self-and Brahma-realisation by seventy types of pranas have been described. This is an entirely new research.

Maharajshri is among the great yogis of our time. We have no words to describe his sharp and subtle intelligence. He has made three world tours for the dissemination of this unique knowledge. Hundreds of thousands of people in Europe, America and Asia are under his debt of gratitude for his efforts to bring to them this knowledge. We confidently hope that he will write many such books full of rare and saving knowledge to enable the seekers to attain liberation. We bow down to his feet again and again.

In the present work has been added an appendix explaining the sanskrita terms retained in their original form in the translation.

Our special thanks are due to Messers. John Robinson and Glen Temby, both of Australia for going through the manuscript.

 

Foreword

The subject of prana has been given much importance in both the worldly as well as the spiritual fields. Nowhere else, probably, this subject has been so much thought over, reflected, studied and investigated as by the munis, yogis and saints of unique gift of India to the world. It is a very ancient knowledge.

The Vedas have been considered the most ancient books in the world by the historians of civilisation and philosophy. References to pranic energy are found especially in the Rigveda and the Atharvaveda. There are meaningful references in the Prasnopanisad, Brihadaranyaka, Aitareyaranyaka’s first three chapters and in the beginning of the Vedanta Darshana, too According to Brihadaranyaka upanisad, prana has been so called because of the vibrations in it due to the intelligence. There is a complete sukta of 26 mantras in the second chapter of the eleventh section of Atharvaveda in which knowledge about Brahma (Brahma vidya) is mainly found. In this sukta, there is a beautiful, lucid discussion about prana. The worlds of this sukta describe prana as: “That all-pervading prana deserves to be reverenced and worshipped because the whole of the phenomenal world is dependent on it. It is the rule of all and the master. All living beings live, move and have their being only by its support. The life-bestowing prana is the lord of all living beings.” Thus, the physical as well as the supreme prana i.e. the prana that is the controller of all the other pranas, are the cause of common as well as the special vibrations and the motion in the whole of the cosmos. The entire realm of the living being is under the control of the prana and is established in the vibratory prana. “The all-pervading intelligent soul is the prana of all pranas and the eyes of the light-giving eyes,” yet, that soul on which the universe depends is not the material cause of the prana but only its efficient cause by virtue its vicinity. This “sun-like” soul is the cause of motion everywhere on account of its omnipresence. How-ever, prana, the essence of life, is the sole cause of motion in all that is manifest a well as unmanifest in the universe.

There are eight chapters in the book. In the first chapter, has been discussed the genesis of prana; in the second, the importance of prana in the realm of mahat; in the third, the importance of prana in the ahankarika world ; in the fourth, the origination of thirty types of pranas from the air element in the realm of gross elements ; in the fifth, the realisation of thirty types of pranas in the realm of gross elements; in the sixth, the realisation of thirty types of pranas in the subtle body; in the seventh, the realisation of three types of pranas of pranas in the causal body and the realisation and origination of nine types of comic pranas, Realisation of the causal body in this context has also been explained; and finally, in the eighth chapter, the realisation of the most subtle prana and its motion in the unmanifest causal prakriti in its balanced state. In addition, there is the description of the perception of prakriti and Brahma.

In this book has been explained the realisation of the self and God by the medium of prana. We have described in great detail in “Science of Soul” and other works the direct perception of soul by the medium of light. Now, in the present work, we have explained the means of self-and Brahma-realisation by the touch of prana. Prana alone has been accepted as the basis of life and the substratum of motion. In the present age, unfortunately, the science of prana has been neglected and is more or less lost. During the upanisadic period prana had been given much importance which continued for some centuries. Now it is waning. That lost esoteric knowledge is again revives here. Maya secret topics relating to prana have been explained at length.

Till now, our disciples had been practicing yoga for self-realisation only by means f light but now, we hope, even those aspirants who have not the good fortune of sight will also be able to attain self-and Brahma-realisation by means of prana. It is the unique gift of this “Science of Vital Force” that in future everyone will be able to quench one’s thirst for spiritual knowledge and attain self-and God-realisation and gain liberation.

In this book, seventy types of pranas have been divided into five main spheres. In the natural realm of gross elements thirty types of gross pranas function and they remain active in the gross body. Similarly, thirty types of pranas work in the subtle bodies in the subtle world. In the causal body in the realm of mahat, only three types of pranas-sattvika, rajasika and tamasika are active. Next, in the fourth sphere, in the realm of prakriti, the subtle prana is the cause of motion in the six cosmic elements. And finally, in the ultimate, balanced state of prakriti, there is an extremely subtle prana which always functions in the subtle form. This prana works uniformly for four billion years and is the cause of motion form the beginning till end. These seventy types of pranas which become subtler at every success-sive step and the gross prana are the support and controller of the microcosmic human body and the macrocosm or the cosmos. At both these levels, this vibratory prana is the origin and the cause of motion.

In the present work, by body we mean all three bodies viz. gross, subtle and causal and by the term Brahmanda or cosmos we means the primal prakriti and its effects or evolutes.
