Human empowerment

It is the innate nature of a human to seek empowerment. Empowerment can be of various types depending on the nature of a person and his/her social status. Some seek empowerment in the form of health and wellbeing, others might wish to empower themselves by various means to do something for themselves or for society. The evolution of mankind has been driven by the desire to empower themselves in one way or another.

There are two major sub-categories of empowerment that have happened with mankind; internal, and external. External empowerment is the dominant visible form in today's world. Certain societies, when faced with adversity used their intellect and creative ability to develop machines and external tools to help them overcome those conditions. On the other hand, there were cultures and societies that chose to develop their internal faculty to overcome adversity. This sub-category of empowerment can be termed as 'self-empowerment' as it involves relatively less dependence on an external machine or tool to achieve a purpose. Henceforth, this post will speak about self-empowerment.

The link between human empowerment and the universe is based on a subtle science which has been described in detail in the vedas. An understanding of this science and application of the knowledge thereby gained is required to achieve the purpose. The structural basis for a human body is not a separate entity but is an abbreviated form of the primordial constituents of the universe.

Formation of the universe :

According to vedic principles, the formation of the universe and it's constituents are purely based on a supreme rule with perfect mathematical regulations.  The building blocks of this universe are the trinity of satva, tamas and rajas(Sanskrit - सत्त्व, तमस, रजस ). These are the trigunas(Sanskrit - त्रिगुणा) , which roughly translates as the three qualities of nature. The five primordial elements are classified using the above mentioned qualities. The details of the classification is beyond the scope of this post. 

The five primordial elements are :

  1. Ākāśa (आकाश) : Ether
  2. Vāyu  (वायु) :  Air
  3. Agni (अग्नि) : Fire
  4. Aap (अप्) : Water
  5. Prithvi(पृथ्वी) : Earth

The five primordial elements fused together in various proportions to create the visible universe that we perceive. The formation chain reaction was initiated by a primordial sound. Various cultures and religions acknowledge the fact that sound was the origin of the universe. Quantum physics also has come to a similar conclusion - that vibration is the basis of all matter.  Sound, the expression of Ākāśa and the source of Universal formation, is suitable to move through and control each one of the grosser elements. In this manner sound can be used to control and rearrange any formations within the universe. 
The human body is a perfect representation of the macrocosmos with all the 5 elements present in perfect proportions. The fused five elements are directly connected with the formation of a human body as five sensory organs (Pancha jñānendriyas) (Sanskrit: पञ्च ज्ञानेन्द्रिय ) and five organs of work (Pancha karmendriyas) (Sanskrit - ( पञ्च कर्मेन्द्रिय )). Therefore sound is a suitable tool to control all parameters of a human body as well. 

Applications of this science can broadly be classified in to  spiritual empowerment and healthcare. 

  • Spiritual Empowerment can once again be sub-classified into yogic practice for self realisation, & study/practice of pranayama through sound. 
  • Healthcare involves using music to synchronise a human body back to it's original perfection. 

 At an implementation level our methods are based on BioPlasmic Modulation Therapy  : the the science of 'Bhootavinjan' through Samaveda  - which mentions the relationship between the seven swaras(notes) and the seven chakras (psychic yogic centres) of the body.  Using these principles along with the wide base of Kriya Yoga science, we practice to utilise sound energy management with life energy using the rhythm of universal execution.

Qualitative Sound Energy Management :

Qualitative sound energy management is employed at the implementation level of our methods. It is based on the qualitative trinity in universal platform. Using principles of yogic science, we convert sound energy into bio-plasmic energy or vital force for various implementations.

Classifications of the various instruments are done based on the qualitative nature of sound that they generate. Qualitative trinity - the trigunas(Sanskrit - त्रिगुणा)(satva, rajas, and tamas) is the base of the entire universe; any particle, thing or being can be relatively classified in these terms. There are no borderlines, therefore the qualities seamlessly fade across into each other. Every point of this qualitative spectrum can be further divided into the three at all levels, so classifications of formations are innumerable. Combinations of these three make almost an infinite variety of formations but that is beyond the scope of this topic.

When dealing with sound energy we can generally say that satvic sounds are calming, soothing in nature. Rajo-guna sounds - energising with momentum. Tama-guna sounds produce higher intensity movements, and are useful to induce a trance like hypnotic effect on the mind. So the quality of sound moves from subtle to gross across the spectrum from satva->tama.

The classifications are relative in the sense that the pleasure (calmness or synchrony) is variable according to the quality of the listener(or intended application). For example persons with a predominantly rajas nature will find instruments with the rajas quality sound soothing and appeasing because the sound is in synchrony with their nature.Therefore we can say a rajasic sound applied on a rajasic person has a satvic effect.

Through the application of suitable subtle sound energy, it is possible to control any energy formations.
