Amarakavi Sideswara, a born Siddha touched the peak of Tapas or the human evolution in the physical and became the chosen recipient of divine revelations in the Brahma Nishta. The present era has witnessed such a great soul whose attainments in yoga and tapas terminated in revealing the cosmic truths underlying the tapas terminated in revealing the cosmic truths underlying the being and becoming of human being in the peak of brahma nishta, the same source of Vedas and Upanishads not to speak of the great Bhagawad Gita. His entire life was full of great siddies, spiritual dreams, divine revelations and yogic and spiritual experiences of great seers on record so far.
This wonder book contains the cosmic truths around. Man's existence and evolution towards God realization in the form of question and answer for easy digest of everyone engaged in the task of understanding and realizing the ins and outs of the challenges posed by nature before man to encounter and evolve into space where he is himself in close proximity with his divinity and self to become self consummated with the eternal. The topics of the book envisage the secrets behind man's faculties, gradients of nishta, siddies and evolution in addition to definitions for various segments of nature within and without the human system. We hope the readers will, certainly reap the best harvest of this wonder book with material culled out from the revelations of Amarakavi for the benefit of the entire humanity as whole under the banner of universal brotherhood.
To be religious is one thing and to be spiritual is another. The former envisages orthodox living conducting pujas and other rituals whereas the latter aims at leading a life of different style where the aspirant makes a deviation from the conventional orthodox living in that he gathers a momentum towards a attempt to control senses, embrace mental solitude even amidst his daily routine of domestic base.
The target of yoga is to make fuse of being and becoming through successful control over sensuous and phenomenal engagements for self-consummation with the divine. Vedas and Upanishads, not to speak of the great Bhagawad Gita, describe and speak volumes about the origin and modus operandi of the most part silent about a clear picture of interaction between human system and nature in general and the working inter-links amongst the faculties of man such as thought, breathing, and speech. Therefore the findings in above text are not sufficient for anyone on earth, to substantiate evolve into space thereby touching the lofty peaks of yogic attainments and excellance called as Samadhi, dhyana Nishta and many such other. To offset these shortages and uplift the humanity as a whole the human faculties to attain thought free silence.v Yoga in its strict sense is to detach thought from its coupe with senses and the human faculties underlying his conscious existence on earth as a man. Beware without thought, where is wisdom? Without thought how to understand that Inner Voice at the peak of penance? Therefore thought is a thing not to be destroyed but to be delinked with the outer world and the body motion snatching the man away to be dropped into object world. Even the great Veda Vyasa could tap Vedas and Upanishads only through thought-free silence and not through a thoughtless state called Nirvikalpa Samadhi equallent to state of "Coma" in medical parlance.
On the above score the object of yoga is to secure thought-free silence wherein thought is divinized, steadfast and free silence wherein thought is divinized, steadfast and free from all forces underlying man's urge and body motion towards the objective world. To understand this thought-free silence, one must have a clear understanding about the origin activating major tools of man's entry into the outer or inner world.
The mighty 18 Siddhas have presented many definitions and formulae to be adopted by everyone to enter his subjective side but in couched pharsology without consistency or coherence. But Amarakavi Siddeswara, who lived in this era as a born Siddha, was successful in his attempt towards self – consummation with the divine and became the receipient of many siddhis and mystical experiences right from boyhood. Even as boy of 10, he was able to embrace and expeireince the so called Brahma Bahava – a super state exclusive with mighty Siddhas and great souls state like Tirumular. Adhi Sankara, Sri Ramanuja, Sri Madhvachariya, Sri Ragavendra and many such others.
According to him, he was practice of in integral yoga over his past six previous births continuously which terminated in such wonderful spiritual experiences. He continued his penance for over half a decade and got stabilized as a perfect siddha under the initation and blessings of saint Agastiya the chief amongst the mighty 18 siddhas. In his sixties amarakavi was fortunate enough to become a chosen soul by the divine and heard the great Sankha Nadham, as a token of his successful entry into with highly evolved souls entitled to divine revelations in Brahma Nishta.
Amarakavi's teachings adopted in yoga is called integral yoga which means and includes an unique co-ordinations amongst thought, breathing and speech, the 3 muskiteers in human evolution in the physical. It is a pity that gamut of these three human faculties is not fully or clearly brought out in a readable from even in Vedas and Upanishads. When such is the case it is wonder that god revealed to Amarakavi the total configuration of human system in the context of self realization. Such divine revelations came in heavy and consistent downpour to Amarakavi which runs to about thousands of pages. Every night he made a record of it and the findings were collected and consolidated under various headings in typed manuscript from without sleeping for seven years as a super Siddha under divine errand.
The revelations envisaged every corner of the modus operandi of human system and faculties and serve as a fountain of knowledge to the humanity as a whole. Amarakavi released two titles in English during his life time namely 1. Nija Ananda Bodham 2. The Secret of Tapas wherein one can find thousands of cosmic truths centering around various human faculties and their integral functions. The chief among them is Amarakavi's treaties on human speech which he says, when mended makes wonders in the art of self realisation and its further march towards self – consummation with the divine for conscious participation with the infinite. In a word, Amarakavi's theorem is Speech is God. In fact, in line with Amarakavi's desire, the Hayagreeva Publication has a proposal to bring out a separate title under the same caption in the nearest future. The state of tapas experienced by Amarakavi during the award of divine revelations from God through Inner voice in the fourth dimension of speech is called Thuriya Atheetham or the super state beyond the so called thuirya. Such an award of grace is exclusive with super seers like saint Agastiya beyond time and space constraints and in close proximity with the divine where man is God himself doing the moments of recording.
This title "Spiritual Secrets part II" has been divided into 8 sections to suit every common reader.
