Description

About the Book

 

Man in God’s creation is a specie limited to Time and Space. Yoga of any style aims at evolving into space to touch regions beyond time and space. There are many types of yoga cum meditation practised in India but their common target is to free oneself from time and space constraints. The popular methods of yoga could be classified as follows.

 

Sri Vidya, Ashtanga Yoga, Advaitic Enquiry

 

Sri Vidya: Right from Vedic period Sri Vidya envisages a challenge for arrest of speech vibration in toto through the help of master mantras designed by Vedic Rishis to leap into the higher potentialities of conscience and consciousness. The popular mantras handled in Sri Vidya are Shodasi and Mahashodasi Mu la Mantras.

 

Ashtanga Yoga: Though difficult and not suited to this modem age of distractions with lure of science, this popular method envisages hard control of breath through direct measure and various postures in yogic exercises to regulate and streamline the human physique to become adaptive to higher dimensions of human existence on earth.

 

Advaita Enquiry: This concept propounded by the great Sri Adhi Sankara purports to touch the stage of oneness with Brahman through self- enquiry with popular Vedic dictums. The process is slow but promising as it penetrates the even concept of dualism which is the truth of human existence until a momentary embrace with Advaitic consciousness. This method does not involve any breath control yogic postures and even Mantra Sadhana. However a man becomes a super man with all Siddhis in divine grace at the threshold of successful Advaitic practice.

 

This research book is full of charts detailing various gradients of Siddhi and yogic practices to be experienced by every one engaged in the task of self consummation with the divine through the above cited methods of yoga. The number of charts found in this text is not exhaustive but enormously educative and emphatic by themselves. The book is meant for all amateurs and adepts as well engaged in the study and practice of any yoga.

 

Preface

 

This book is first in its kind to reveal the gradients and gamut of spiritual evolution of man. The aspirants are generally following one of the paths of popular methods such as Sri Vidya, Ashtanga yoga and Advaitic enquiry. There is no book, which compares and reveals equivalent stages and steps among various methods of yoga. This book compares the different stages in yoga in a unique way in that this serves better for the uplift of everyone from common man to specialist. The gradient charts given at the end of the book is a boon to everyone engaged in yoga and meditation. The number of charts given is not exhaustive but emphatically educative by making its readers aware of missing links in the present day pattern of yogic practice. The concepts of Vacant Look, Kevala Kumbhakam and c1airaudience are some of the miles-stones in yoga well defined and detailed as stages in human evolution in the physical. It is therefore, not out of place to mention here that this book will be a good companion to all readers irrespective of caste creed, and the path of yoga followed by them.

 

For a comprehensive knowledge in yoga, one must be aware of all schools of thought such as Sri Vidya, Patanjali Yoga, Advaita and Siddha cult, in essence. The Siddhas of yore revealed yogic and cosmic truths but in couched phraseology owing to indifference of Indian aspirants and practicenor in yoga. To decipher such gospels of Siddhas is not so easy even for the adepts. Therefore it is a boon to readers of this wonder book that the book contains revelations from Siddhas collected by Amarakavi Siddeswara with which the reader can get the benefit of Siddha cult in practice.

 

The publication has proposals to bring out books on other charts under preparation, which will enrich the readers with what is what in yoga and practice. I am cock sure that this book will serve as good guide to all aspirant in yoga to take stock of themselves with their advance in practice. The readers are requested to digest this wonder book and enhance their patronage by recommending the book to their friends and associates so that the gradients of yoga can well be understood by a majority of aspirants.

 

Introduction

 

In this book, “The Steps in Yoga and Meditation”, Sri V. R. Vijayakumar, (V.R.V) the primary disciple of Sri Amarakavi Siddheswara, has brought out the salient features of Amarakavi’s unique propositions on the subject.

 

Mr. Vijayakumar’s buoyant spirit and his brilliant intellect, coupled with his first-hand experience with the Amarakavi had enabled him to gain intimate and subtle intricacies of the vast philosophic, Yogic and Siddha systems. Hence this book is like a manna from Heaven for ardent aspirants.

 

One of the redeeming features of this book is, the gradient charts given at the end of the book. They will be definitely helpful to the aspirants for their spiritual enlightment. They reveal the hitherto unexplored areas in the Yogic practice. Hence the book bears the stamp of original research work based on the discovery of human life, as reflected in the self-experience of Amarakavi Siddheswara.

 

The definitions in the second part are also excellent and are intensely educative to every serious reader.

 

It is certain that this valuable book will be of practical use to all aspirants of Sri Vidyopasana, Pathanjali Yoga, Advaita Siddhantha and the Siddha Cult and will be of great assets to the libraries.

 

I wish the author every success in this glorious venture and may he publish many more books of this ilk, so that they may prove to be eye-opener for several sadhaks.
