So many questions still keep coming about the origin of Tattva Shakti Vigyaan in particular, especially so, after the announcement of workshops has come in ‘Life Positive’ and ‘Speaking Tree’ and honestly our volunteers who answer the calls from people, have hard time explaining about it to all to them.
So I thought that instead of putting the burden of ignorance of callers on our innocent volunteers it is better if we can put something here on web which in general explains all such valid questions. I sought beloved’s permission and searched through the archives. Luckily I got hold of one of the interviews dating back to year 2007 which Master had given to a french tourist on his pilgrimage to Rishikesh. This recorded interview was transcribed and sent to Master AD for his blessings & approval. With his permission we put this interview here. In fact this interview caters to generic curiosity of a modern man who rarely engages himself in serious spiritual endeavours.
I’m sure your many questions would get answered through this post nevertheless if some of you still have some specific questions to ask you are welcome to post through the comments and Master shall personally answer those here for the benefit of all…
So here it goes :
Q: Master AD, What is Tattva Shakti Vigyaan?
Acharya : To be able to appreciate what TSV is we will have to go through the human evolution perhaps because TSV is as old as this universe. In human experience it dates back around 20 million years ago. It was there even at that moment when the human form (roopa) transmuted from astral to material world. Recent discoveries prove that DNA predates life on earth which proves the notion of TSV that design in the matter came later and it must have been already available before the so called evolution begun. Yet TSV is about evolution and structured organization of elements in gross subtle order. And right from that day of human incarnation in matter it has been flowing with time unceasingly. Tattva Shakti Vigyaan is that principle which triggered the creation of universe. It is also the one which sustains it and the very principle which will annihilate it all at the end. Everything, visible or invisible, tangible or intangible, right from celestial bodies… galaxies to the blade of grass, humans, have evolved in and through Tattvas, there is no other way.
The man, though unaware of Tattva Shakti Vigyaan principles, has been evolving in it… Right from the day humans appeared on this planet on their journey started. It has been tough – the first phase the race tried to survive through the tough and trying circumstances of this planet. Humans of those times required to go through lot of struggle for their primary need of shelter and food.. this long battle, with lot many stronger and gigantic inhabitants continued. The man survived because divine had embedded a unique element in him; the manas or mind which has all the power to fight and survive. As humans became more comfortable with their surroundings and habitat, new challenges were in front of the race to survive in the face of hardships and increased competition. When they reached that phase where they could survive and fulfill their basic needs easily, with the ability to reason the new set of questions and drives entered their lives.
Now the man was ready to walk further on the path of real evolution… It has been growing, learning, questioning and experimenting throughout these millions of years. The race has reached a point where it is experiencing a continuous struggle between inner and outer advancements. And this long journey has sharpened the mind so much that it has now become a double edged sword. If you fail to stay aware of it, it may ruin your whole being…. but still the mind is designed to serve its purpose as Master says “The man’s capacity to reason rooted in desire principle is the very basis of his spiritual quest and attainment.”
Yet the lightening of Higher Mind was needed. The divine creator had seen all the phases of our transitions and helped us sail through. Every now and then HE sent his messengers on this plane to present us the ultimate knowledge that clears the dust settled on our mind due to our long tedious journeys. These messengers are the ones whom we respectfully call “Masters”. These Masters were time to time present in different parts of the world spreading the pearls of wisdom. Sadly the pearls of wisdom were scattered and not very preciously picked up by us. All the pearls are now known as “Religion”. You may find many of them but none are able to fulfill their real purpose. The Masters had always come with a mission to connect the humanity in universal brotherhood but we still experience more and more boundaries created instead of bridges. A study in TSV makes it clearer that You & I despite difference in faiths and beliefs operate under the same principles – TSV is 100% scientific if that was to be said.
We all have acquired one more chance to live our life according to universal laws of creation. I have committed myself in making people understand the importance of wisdom given by Masters. Every seer now and then has given us various ways to handle this double edged sword, the mind. They have also talked about how to control it. Today when we are surrounded by many new theories, TSV is the most ancient yet most logical and scientific synthesis of wisdom proposed by divine Himself for the New-Age-Man.
Q: OK. I think I understood TSV which has been proposed by Masters for modern man. By the way I would like to know your Guru lineage as well.
Acharya: You have correctly summarized the TSV for me. I belong to Shaakt tradition and the particular branch called Kaula. I have been initiated in spiritual Vidya by my Guru Shri Shivanand Nath ji, who is from the holy city of Prayag, a sacred city in northern parts of India. I am not sure whether you will understand the jargon I’m going to use now but still.. My param-Guru is Shri Poornanad Nath ji (from Prayag), My Paratpar Guru is Shri Brahmanand Nath ji, my Parameshthi Guru is Shri Gyananand Nath ji (from Himalayas) whose Guru was Shri Hayagreevananda Nath ji also from Himalayas. There have been many more Gurus on my path and if I start mentioning them and their lineage it will be really difficult for us to proceed further.
Q: No problems.. I appreciate. Yet I wonder how you can remember these many names all the times (laughs). Alright, Now I would like to know what is Tattva Shakti Vigyaan? Is it new concept or old?
Acharya: Tattva Shakti Vigyaan is not a new concept. It has been handed over to human race by Masters of Vedic Age.
This material world is made up of elements. These tangible entities as per Masters of Vedic tradition have been grouped in 5 categories namely – Prathvi, Jala, Agni, Vayu and Akasha. These are the five modes of material expression of divine which support creation we see around us. In fact all action happens in the realm of elements. These elements in their physical forms are known as panch-mahabhootas which are linked with panch-tanmatras that is nothing but the subtler, astral presence behind each of these material exhibitions of individual elements. In this universe is nothing but the elements-interacting-with-elements, dancing in their own way and we are the witness of this divine dance of elements around us.
In fact even human beings; their physical bodies, the most useful tool in this scheme of universe, are made up these elements – The Panch tattvas. Each tattvas in human body is responsible for certain types of activities which go on harmoniously unless until their balance is disturbed by our actions, thoughts, emotions and outer influences. Tattva Shakti Vigyaan is a science behind conscious manipulation of these tattva-potencies within human body to achieve the desired energy-balance state in being.
Tattva Shakti Vigyaan is appreciation of the life-principle hidden in subtler and thinner aspect of the same matter which we otherwise think to be dead. It uses symbols, sounds and special kriyas and practices to make the practitioner tap the hidden potential of Elemental Energies firstly for his own benefit and then others later on.
Q: How does sound and symbols affect and manipulate the subtler elemental energies? What are those Kriyas which a practitioner has to perform?
Acharya: To know that in detail you will have to attend to one of the “Tattva Shakti Vigyaan” deeksha camps (laughs) however it is pure science. Just in brief – To affect and connect to subtler energy vibrational frequencies we will have to use specific frequencies only. Right? Sound which is nothing but specific vibrational frequency though lower harmonics of the same group are capable of creating resonating channels between universal elemental energies and the one’s which are in human body. Symbols are similarly pictorial replicas or doubles of the astral in material world and are equally effective in connecting to the elemental energies.
Q. Hmmm.. What are general benefits of “Tattva Shakti Vigyaan” practices & who is eligible to receive this deeksha?
Acharya: As I already said the Lodge of masters is about universal brotherhood so anyone, who thinks himself Human is eligible to receive this deeksha. The benefits are enormous ranging from improved self-healing capacities, high energy-levels, better health, increased sense of joy and contentment, balanced state of mind and above all the appreciation for unseen forces which are always at work without coming to our knowledge otherwise. This is the first stepping stone towards spiritual progress.
Q. Can it help in curing addictions/Fears & phobias? If yes, how?
AD: Yes. It is very much possible.
Tattva Shakti Vigyaan practices or Sadhna makes you sensitive to your inner universe. It also gradually gives you insights on what is your energy-make up. When you become aware of your body energies, understand the dynamics of energies it happens. In fact addictions are nothing but periodic movement of energy currents due to inertia created by repeated actions. By directing your elemental energies to disrupt the pattern of energy flow which causes craving you easily come out of addictions. Similarly fears and phobias can be cured through regular practice.
Q. If parents are practicing does it affect the well-being of children as well? By the way I forgot to ask you what is the age recommended minimum age for Initiation?
Acharya: (Laughs) It is just like asking – if I light up a candle in the dark room to read a book will its light help others present in the same room? Yes, definitely. Your practices when intensified create a strong influential energy field around you which naturally balances people around you especially those whom you intend well, care and love.
The minimum age to get initiated in Tattva Shakti Vigyaan practices is 16 years.
Q: Does its practice improve children’s learning capacity also? Suppose parents of a special child (who is mentally not growing well) want to help their child can they do it by practices of Tattva Shakti Vigyaan?
Acharya: The benefits of direct practices are far more than indirect influence of Parent’s improved and balanced energy fields so I encourage parents to send their eligible children for initiation.
The challenges with special children are far more complicated and different as well. First thing is that these children are born with a purpose. One of which is giving the lesson of selfless service to their parents and while unfolding of their own heavy Karma continues. Such souls visit earth to cleanse themselves and all we can do is support them in that process. One must understand that such children are not able to crystallize their ego and hence are prone to many ill-influences and negative energies around. I have personally seen the energies of many such children being sucked away by negative entities. Such children definitely need protection at auric level. If someone has a special child at home then he/she must know how to protect their innocent children from negativities of darker realms. In fact Tattva Shakti Vigyaan practitioner can do a lot with his intentions. He/she can invoke elemental energies through specific rituals and seek protection.
Q: So you mean it is no replacement for medication but works as a shield against negative forces.
Acharya: Correct! at least in initial stages of practices it can be seen working as deterrent to sickness.
Q: How do you explain career taking a north-ward turn by practicing “Tattva Shakti Vigyaan”. Isn’t it an exaggeration? I mean how can your practices earn you better salaries and promotions at work-place.
Acharya: Believe it or not but the whole process of career progression is dependent on two things. One is definitely your efficiency in what you do but the second one is whether you are liked at workplace or not, especially by your seniors. And in the same breath I would like to refute the statement that it is an exaggeration. In reality so many Tattva Shakti Vigyaan practitioners come-back within 2-3 weeks of their initiation to tell me that they now being sought by their prospective employers.
It is no surprise to me.. and I will tell you what I explain to them. It is because their energies start getting more balanced due to practices. They radiate stronger positive vibrations around. These thoughts are then relayed to the collective-universal-subconscious & are grasped unconsciously by everyone around and thus people suddenly start seeking you, remembering you. What is the surprise here if someone’s resume which was lying there in their prospective employer’s data-base for moths suddenly becomes visible to him? TSV practitioners gradually become radiant with positive energy which makes them likable at work-places. This changed quality of radiation from their being wins them extra brownie points more often than not.
Q: Well… I see a point here but to prove it beyond doubt probably I will have to wait until few years when you have 1000s of examples and testimonies to quote. Anyways… my next question is can it awaken my Kundalini?
Acharya: No guarantee at least at this level. It may.. it may not. In fact it should not because this sadhana works primarily at level of your body and grossest part of your energy body. One thing for sure – it does prepare you for your spiritual ascension though. Kundalini awakening is extremely rare at this level. There are other higher levels of Sadhana in the path of “Tattva Shakti Vigyaan” for that.
Q: Thank you for answering my all the questions so far. I am really happy to know this path of yours but before I close I must know What is next level of learning here – I mean the path forward after Tattva Shakti Vigyaan practices are perfected and how much time one may take to be eligible for 2nd level?
Acharya : Good forward looking question (laughs). One can take a lifetime or may be few 100 lifetimes to get initiated on to second level. It is dependent on one’s practices. It takes one almost one year if someone genuinely practices this with discipline and faith. Hope this is enough and I can take rest now?
Q: Please master.. one more quick question. What special thing you teach in level – II.
Acharya: It is called Sanjeevani Vidya. Can I take your leave Now? (smiles)
Q. Thank you soo much Master. I am sorry to hold you for so long.. One again I thank you for your time. I bow down to you.
Acharya: May god be by you. Shivoham
