Solar Portal to Divinity

"Unveil, O Thou who givest sustenance to the Universe, from whom all proceed, to whom all must return, that face of the True Sun now hidden by a vase of golden light, that we may see the truth and do our whole duty on our journey to thy sacred seat." ………….Gayathri mantra. …….Rigveda 3.62.10

"When the land grows bright and you are risen from the Akhet (horizon) and shining in the sun-disk by day,…………All flocks (are) at rest on their grasses, trees and grasses flourishing; Birds flown from their nest, their wings in adoration of your life-force; All flocks prancing on foot, all that fly and alight living as you rise for them; Ships going downstream and upstream too, every road open at your appearance;
Fish on the river leaping to your face, your rays even inside the sea." ...Hymn od Aten, (trans. James P. Allen)

"Bless the Lord . . . you who coverest thyself with light as with a garment . . . Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters; . . . He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and . . . the trees ..…………………… (As) the sun ariseth, (the beasts) gather themselves together ............There go the ships: there is that leviathan (whale), whom thou hast made to play therein." ...........Psalm 104

I have given in a chronological order the prayer to the Sun as the symbol of the cosmic nature of Divinity in various spiritual traditions. From the ancient times this theme has been invoked in man’s pursuit for communion with his own higher self. It is common knowledge that life on earth in any form cannot be possible without the energy from the Sun. This intimate relation was understood only at the physical level. Whether it is the Chlorophyll of the plant leaves converting the Sun’s energy into life giving oxygen or the physical warmth which provides energy for the wellbeing of humans, our understanding was limited without a transcendence to the spiritual plane.

We have never probed other forms of energy which comes from the Sun except from a negative dimension, such as the effect of cosmic rays. Though cosmic rays provide aesthetic displays in the polar regions as dancing auroras, it is more to study and prevent damage to our communication networks and power industries which can be caused by a powerful blast of cosmic ray bombardment. The earth magnetic field provides a protective shield.

Recently however, NASA has found out that there are portals through which a permanent connection between the earth’s magnetic field and the Sun’s magnetic field exists. Studies have shown that the human heart radiates a very powerful magnetic field and hence we have, as a species, a direct link to the Sun. We have also scientifically established a relation between our conscious emotional response to the heart field we generate.

It was Dr. Michio Kaku, a leading theoretical physicist who specializes in ‘String theory’ who had proposed the intimate connection in a hierarchy which he classified as levels of civilization. His classification starts with species level and proceeds to planetary, Solar, Galactic and finally to the Cosmic level.
This classification maps very similar to the KARDASHEV SCALE of type I to V, proposed in 1964 by Nikolai Kardashev. The scales adopted by Kardashev and Michio Kaku are based on energy harnessing.
In this classification, type 0 is where species harness energy from their planetary environment.
Level I is where species harness energy from their parent star. In type II the civilization would be able to harness directly the energy from their neighbouring star. Type III would have Galactic access. Type IV would be able to access cosmic level resources, via Black Holes, Dark energy etc. and Type V would be a transcendent species and Kardashev calls them like Gods. While these classifications and proposals are hypothetical, the magnitude of advancement to achieve these levels would be beyond the current four dimensional spacetime domain. A scientific route is a dream of near science fiction genre at the present moment but a mystical route is always within the grasp of a consciousness advanced enough to transcend this limitations.

The basic shift in our thinking has to happen from energy to consciousness. A true qualification of civilization is based on its collective consciousness. Harnessing energy is a derivative of this level of consciousness. When there is a disconnect between the integral consciousness of the species and its environment, sustainability becomes an issue. Our current state of affairs with climate change is a typical example.

A moment of deep thought would reveal that it is the witnessing consciousness of the species which is able to perceive all these levels from a physical plane. But if we move to a purely subtle consciousness plane, which is the same substratum at all levels and is the very elemental link in the downward causation from the Big Bang to the current level of manifestation, it is within the power of the observing consciousness to ascend freely the total hierarchy from the species to the cosmic level. The hindering barrier in the physical plane is the objective imprints in the consciousness field which acts as a very fine filter not allowing the free flow through the various levels of consciousness.

The seed of consciousness and the totality of consciousness is an indestructible entity and in manifestation is clothed in a dimensional shell. Hence tapping into the totality of this consciousness at any level of manifestation one can traverse the entire levels of manifestation in whatever dimensions they may exist.

Our scientific studies would only endorse the connectivity but establishing the relationships can only be through the witnessing consciousness.

Love to you all.

  1. Very good article and the best part was witnessing consciousness. Just today I read somewhere that scientists are using EEG to map meditative state... I was just thinking if they don't have direct experience... personal.. what are they going to understand from the EEG

  2. Thank you, Vishu, for your feedback. You can only draw peripheral conclusions from any scientific investigations regarding matters which are metaphysical in nature. Because the investigating community sets up a commonly agreed benchmark (such as the category of the brain wave which is the reflection of its electrical activity) the investigation is limited to this dimension.
    A holistic investigation, in matters that are metaphysical, can only be experiential.
    The EEG investigation helps in marketing meditation but why not if the customer can can get benefits through his or her own experience.
