Great men are not accidentally born, they are born when the world waits for them in eager expectation, says Swami Vivekananda. Saints come, do their job and go, such is the phenomenon of Nature. India, that has always been the home of spirituality, was groping in the darkness and had totally forgotten the age old system of yoga.
Solid materialism had taken the place of fine spiritualism. Dark clouds of ignorance were hovering all over, Yogic Transmission had become quite foreign to us. At this state, when Spirituality was tottering helplessly, some great personality was urgently needed to set things right, for the upliftment of Mankind.
At such a time, the Power of Nature descended in human form, as Samarth Guru Mahatma Shri Ram Chandraji Maharaj of Fatehgarh. This Spiritual Genius was born on Basant Panchami, the 2nd February, 1873, in a respectable family. He explored the vast fields of Spirituality and evolved the remodelled system of yoga, with the result that, it has become easy for all the souls to grasp it and a good deal of time has been saved thereby.
The world will be astonished if it views the System with heart's eye. Realisation has become a very easy job now. The old idea that it is very difficult is now cleared and thrashed out. The main basic of training is Transmission (Pranahuti), which makes the task easy. It has been introduced into the System called Sahaj Marg. We start by meditation on the heart, which is the nucleus in the human body. The changes are felt, when the yatra (journey) is started. What these changes and experiences are, have been already been given in the book Towards Infinity, so I need not mention them here. There are only four conditions felt in each one of the centres. They are verified, as we proceed further in the region and they continue till we reach the final stage of Being.
When the yatra of all the centres of Pind Pradesh is over, we reach Brahmanda Mandal. This is Cosmic Region. All the powers of Nature are at work and we try to absorb in them. It is a very big region, no doubt, but vaster are the regions coming after. Every point is a continent in itself and the beauty of it is felt more, when we begin to traverse that part. Afterwards, we enter into the Para-Brahmanda Mandal, then Prapanna, where we feel the utmost devotion and the greatness of God. After it comes Prabhu, where we feel our share in the Creation. Then comes Prapanna Prabhu, where both things are there in rarefied form. Afterwards there are 64 points, which are all my discoveries. Man becomes potentialised, when he crosses all these points with Yatra. After crossing all these points, we get tidings of entering into the Central Region. This is the pure realm of God. There are Seven Rings of Splendour, as I have discovered. If we get somehow the Master of the highest calibre, then we proceed further on, to cross all the rings.
The work is not yet over. After crossing all the Rings of Splendour, an abhyasi begins to feel expansion throughout the Universe. Then comes the stage of Divine knowledge; afterwards we feel the Vision of Absolute. In the end starts Layavastha in Brahm; at this state,the problem of life is thoroughly solved. And this is the last run of all our spiritual activities — but the thing never ends. We begin to start swimming in Infinite, in order to complete the chain. I must add that during our march to Reality, of course, at a higher point, the atoms of the body begin to convert themselves into energy and then energy into its Absolute. The whole System is thoroughly Divinised, and a man becomes dynamic.
