It is astoundingly intellectual and precise, yet its effect is to liberate the mind from its normal fetters of perpetual doubt and contention. While many of its ideas and concepts are consistent with and equally profound to the ancient Indian Upanishads and Tantra texts, Ananda Sutram is more of a reorganization and even a complete re-envisioning of their key elements.
The work consists of five chapters, starting with a description of a comprehensive cosmological cycle. Subsequent chapters examine the interaction of the individual with a Universal, or Cosmic Consciousness God, if you will , the partnership of the two to progress through the cycle, and the fundamental unity of the both. It concludes with a theistic macro-analysis of the evolution and development of human society that ultimately provides a foundational roadmap for future social progress.
With continued pressure through the action of the attributes within the element of solid factor notwithstanding an explosive counter-action Life may begin by the organization of internalized forces prana. Mind slowly manifests within the newly organized units.
As the organized expression of this Life Force increases in complexity within the created units, their minds mirror, in reverse, the manifestation of the Cosmic Mind, i. Human beings are the culmination of the process whereby the Unit Mind fully reflects the witness-ship of Cosmic Mind. Human beings may expand their limited witness-ship into the Cosmic Witness which results in various stages of samadhi. The thirst for the Infinite happiness is innate within the human psyche, i.
Achievement of this state is possible and is the Human Destiny. Steps taken toward this end are Dharma Human Destiny, or Duty.
The Universal Mind and its Absolute Existence Truth is sensed and can be perceived and experienced by the internal effort of the unit mind by way of the relativity—the relative truth—of the manifest universe.
Saguna Brahma knows positive and negative results just as the unit beings know pleasure and pain. Chapter 3 The partnership of the unit mind and the Cosmic Mind for final liberation. The unit mind has five layers, while the Cosmic mind has seven. In death, the unit mind sleeps within the Cosmic Mind where it holds its separateness as a bundle of potential, yet-to-be-experienced karmic reactions, both pleasant and unpleasant.
The relationship between the unit and the Cosmic is fundamentally loving, and the Cosmic Entity reaches out to provide guidance for the welfare of the unit. Supplication and worship, being external in nature, distract from this ultimate destiny of Union, Bliss and Liberation. Chapter 4 The fundamental unity of the Cosmic intent with the destiny of the unit being.
That line soon vibrates to form the five fundamental factors and various, vibrating combinations of the same. Those combinations organize according to their vibrational similarities, yet the impetus to vibrate at all continues like a through-line, or thread, upon which the organized substances are strung. The Cosmic Guide, through the qualified yoga guru, eventually awakens that Kundalini force lying dormant within the fully developed entity, the human being, to then be advanced through the physical, mental and spiritual practices of yoga to complete the final stages of Unit Liberation.
Chapter 5 The growth and evolution of human society for the maximum progress of all. Humans organize themselves into social systems on local, regional and on a global scale. In the first sloka of this chapter, Anandamurtii P. Sarkar says that this domination changes sequentially as above and naturally from class to class in a cyclical manner.
The second sloka says that spiritually discipline leaders, he calls Sadvipras, can influence these transitions by taking up a position in the center, i. These transitions can be more or less abrupt and result in gradual evolution or more sudden revolutions. Counter-evolution and counter-revolutions can also occur, but still follow the same track backwards through the four-class cycle.
People are not, however, forever stuck by birth or any other factor within their class in some kind of caste; rather, their mental tendency can diversify. Sarkar then gives guidance to future leaders with guiding principles for ideal social development. Minimum requirements for physical, mental and spiritual well-being must be provided for all from available resources, surplus resources should be distributed according to merit, and the overall standards of living should be continuously increased for all.
No individual should be allowed to accumulate excessive wealth. In just these few aphorisms, P. The slokas encourage spiritual aspirants by guiding their natural, rational inquisitiveness away from religious dogma while simultaneously channeling their expanding energies into assertive actions for broad-based social welfare.
