Enlightenment is most easily gained by invoking the archetypes that exist in the eternal and Universal Mind. The Universal Mind upholds the manifest universe. Our own subconscious mind has access to the Universal Mind. The Universal Mind is revealed in our awakened subconscious mind. In our experience the Universal Mind and our awakened subconscious mind are one and the same.
The Supreme has become the Archetypes which are known as the Gods and Goddesses, Angels and Powers, that have existed in ancient scriptures and myths of humanity from time immemorial. The Archetypes remain in humanity's collective subconscious mind and the Universal Divine Mind. The keys that unlock the universal consciousness similarly unlock limited consciousness. The keys are letters, syllables, words, and sentences.
The archetypes are aspects of the universal consciousness whom are released from the darkness of the subconscious by combinations of letters, syllables, words, and sentences. Invocation of the archetypes comes by the correct combination of letters, syllables, words, and sentences, or "mantras." The mantras must be used at the correct time and with the correct technique. By invoking the archetypes that live in the eternal and universal mind, enlightenment in one's innermost consciousness, and, external manifestations in the material world occur.
In our physical universe we are located in the Milky Way Galaxy and more particularly, our Solar System. Our connection to the All or to the universe must start here, The sun and moon are not only celestial bodies, they are conscious personalities. The sun and the moon are the two most important powers, gods or archetypes in relation to our planet earth. The sun and moon regulate time on earth. The primary energy and matter of all the planets of our solar system came from the sun. The moon is matter and energy in the earth orbit which solidified as a satellite of the earth.
The nine planets of vedic astrology are aspects of the Divine Mind. The planets have deities that rule over them. The planets and their overlords offer significant help to us through their vibrations when properly invoked by their mantras at the times of their rule. The Divine Mind changes its vibration or energies from moment to moment. This is called the Time Shaktis.
Mantras are used to stimulate the energy centers or chakras of the subtle body, The Grace of the Supreme can be invoked from below at the chakra to the planet and through the planet to its overlord. This is the proper principle of hierarchy. When the chakras are awake and active the fire from the core of the earth and the light from the center of the universe meet in the crown center and Enlightenment dawns.
The great yogis and siddhis of the hoary past mapped the celestial bodies without the aid of modern technology. Thousands of years before western empirical civilization accepted that the earth revolved around the sun it was documented in the scriptures or shastras of the yogis. Vedic astrology charts the Divine Mind. Vibrations change first in the Universal Mind, then the celestial bodies follow.
The ancient path to enlightenment takes into consideration the time shaktis which are the energies of the moment or the "color" of the Divine mind, the ruling planet, its overlord, and, the chakras in the subtle body to be stimulated, By working with the correct mantra with the correct technique at the proper time, the spiritual practice is energized with immediate results. Experience is only be limited by capacity. Increase the capacity to take in the earth's fire and universal light daily.
The mantras must be a meditation. not a mechanical repetition. Yoga is scientific. The results can be duplicated. The same process yields same results for experimenters. Sacred sounds yield divine consciousness.
New Session of the Teachings of the Ancient Path
Celebrating Sri Ganesha's appearance I was inspired to offer a new session of the Ancient Path to Enlightenment. The program uplifts the aspirant onto the spiritual platform. In this session, the Ancient Path to Enlightenment, the art of meditation which leads to perception of the Inner Light will be transmitted.
The Supreme's presence in one's conscious mind is Enlightenment. The Divine comes into the mind and heart of the devotee through the devotee's own soul as Supernal Light. The Inner Light is visible to the Yogi in meditation. Deep meditation peers into a space transcendental to material laws. Material circumstances can be changed from that space.
By living fully in the world, it has become unbearably apparent that no one has an idea what yoga meditation or Samadhi is. I will meditate where I am ... on a train, sitting in a group, in a spa... Not for an exposition, but because it is my preferred experience. Enlightenment, although it is the normal human condition, is unknown to most. Sometimes I will hear comments regarding my posture, closed eyes, and my stillness. Sometimes I am asked if I am sleeping.
Confronted as such and disturbed in my concentration, I dare not say that the Yogic sleep of meditation is the true awakening. To the querients I appear unconscious in deep sleep, or, perhaps I am thought drunk. By their expressions I see that I am an object of ridicule. Someone that they can feel superior to. Seldom it is that I am asked a sincere question.
One time at the ocean's edge, I was performing a Pradosham ritual to remove karma. I noticed a young man sitting behind me enjoying the ocean view. I tried to sink below the rocks not to be seen to no avail. When I was done and passed by him leaving he asked me, "What were those?"
I said, "Coconuts."
He joyously exclaimed, "Of course! I understand perfectly!"
The master does teach in silence, on the soul's level, but the student must be ripe to receive it. Those trying to enjoy themselves by indulging the senses see meditation as an escape from the world and its pleasures. But being transcendentally positioned does not negate the senses. They are enhanced. The goodness in everything is joyfully brought forth.
Recently when on a ride, I felt very sad to see homeless people with very dark auras, I asked the Mother how she could let them remain in that state. She said tartly, "Haven't I given Shiva's words to the world?"
Thus it became clear to teach to those who are ready to receive. So I am offering the Ancient Path to Enlightenment to everyone that the few interested may benefit. In this age of Kali the Dark the darkness of the present time is the experience of the masses-an un-illumined mind devoid of the glorious light of the Supreme.
It pains me so to know the heaven within when so many do not even imagine it may exist. The fact that Samadhi is a foreign thing emphasizes the darkness of the Kali Yuga. The darkness of the Age is the source of ignorance, dissatisfaction, depression and absurdity. And so it must be as an unenlightened person lacks their most precious sense being blind, deaf, and dumb to spiritual sensory input. Even in a spa, as Swami Prabhupada has remarked, "they think they are enjoying when they are really suffering."
In being led to make this offering, I understood that I naturally only wish to meditate which tends to isolate me from the suffering of the world. However the suffering of the world has become a distraction and center of my concern. Therefore the solution is to offer to the general public what has before only been available to temple benefactors: I simply meditate with aspirants until they learn how to deeply meditate on their own.
One need not leave the world to live a spiritual life. One can learn meditation living fully in the world once the subtle body is enlivened. The subtle body is enlivened by contact with another subtle body which has already been enlivened. One's experience will only be limited by one's own capacity. Increase inner capacity daily.
"Rely not on the teacher, but on the teaching." said the Buddha
The path that I am teaching is not a new path. It is not a path that I discovered or cut out by my own great capacity. I call it the Ancient Path to Enlightenment because there is none older. It originated in the Satya yuga with Shiva Himself. I have been fortunate to come to it through living masters from the land of spirituality, India.
My first Guru Sri Chinmoy taught it in silence. By his grace, after his passing, he has allowed me to seek out current siddhis. A siddhi is a successful yogi. Tamil Siddhis of south India have kept alive the oldest practices of yoga. South India survived the deluge. The Kashmir Shivites are also Siddhis. They share the same tradition as the Tamil Siddhis, but use Sanskrit rather than the Tamil Language. Yogiraj from the Himalayas and Dr. Pillai (Siva Baba) from Tamil India are two Siddhis that are compassionately serving the world presently. I love them dearly and encourage all to participate in their offerings.
I owe much of my personal experiences to these three modern avatars who work tirelessly to illumine humanity in this present age. I have been called to join their work and share what I have received. Sincerity and a strong desire for realization on the part of the aspirant is required to receive spiritual instruction. Forget about the ego by finding Divine Mind. Perform karma removing actions and rituals. Learn miracle manifestation.

This is a guide to enlightenment. It reveals techniques that have been taught from time immemorial to connect one to the primal life energy that enlivens the earth, plants, animals, man, and the universe. The universe is alive and conscious. The planets themselves are but the shadow of the great beings, which influence our lives and organize time through their orbits around the sun.
It is an introduction to the Ancient Path of Enlightenment, the path that utilizes mantra to invoke the ancient archetypes that exist in the collective unconscious from time immemorial. It is an experiential path. It contains the proper practice of potent sound meditations or mantra meditations and the time they are to be practiced to the day and hour. By using the correct mantra at the correct time the energy of the cosmic Gods are properly invoked. They thus reveal themselves in the consciousness of the meditater as shining beings.
The word “Deva” is the word often translated as a Hindu God. Its literal translation is “shining being.” In my experience the Devas are the Inner Light. As meditation is entered first comes formless light, then the light takes form, divine human form.
Jesus has said that we are the Light. Again, that we are one with Him, who in turn is one with the Father. God is Light. The experience of light in meditation is what I deem to be enlightenment. With the light comes a great peace, love, and bliss.
One must come to one’s own understanding regarding the nature of God. My understanding which is suggested in this book is that God, which in the tradition of my Guru Sri Chinmoy, I call “the Supreme,” is One, who became two, male and female, and then became the many.
Therefore, I suggest that the Supreme is one absolute formless consciousness which has taken on the role of male and female to know itself, then became the myriad Gods and Goddesses, powers, planets, and souls. In this view the Supreme became all of us, and, there should be no sense of separateness from the Supreme and us.
It is only the deluding power of maya, the isolating power of ego, and, the limiting power of karma which prevents one from realizing one’s true nature as the Supreme playing a human role. It is but the Lila or play of the Supreme being acted out for the entertainment of all.
While the Lila may be designated as a dream, it is a real dream, as the Supreme come as our souls has made it real, and, thus making our actions significant as our consciences confirm them to be.
The journey up along the path of enlightenment is part of the Lila. It is the plot of the play. It is the goal of all of our lives and we will all reach it, no matter how many lives it takes us. The Supreme is thrilled when we reach the Goal, as it is in fact the Supreme coming to know Himself, which is the purpose of creation.
