The amygdala manages connections and responses between several regions of the brain. It's directly involved with emotional well-being, the flight-or-flight response and fear conditioning. A recent study also suggests that the amygdala plays a role in the complexity of social life. Most importantly, research by T. D. A. Lingo has established that the anterior portion of the amygdala is connected to the frontal lobes. If one activates the anterior portion of the amygdala, the frontal lobes will open to limitless mental ability.
Lucid dreaming means dreaming while knowing that you are dreaming. The term was coined by Frederik van Eeden who used the word "lucid" in the sense of mental clarity. Lucidity usually begins in the midst of a dream when the dreamer realizes that the experience is not occurring in physical reality, but is a dream. Often this realization is triggered by the dreamer noticing some impossible or unlikely occurrence in the dream, such as flying or meeting the deceased. Sometimes people become lucid without noticing any particular clue in the dream; they just suddenly realize they are in a dream. A minority of lucid dreams (according to the research of LaBerge and colleagues, about 10 percent) are the result of returning to REM (dreaming) sleep directly from an awakening with unbroken reflective consciousness.
The achievement of Moksha is the Goal of human existence and many of us have been striving to accomplish this. To achieve the first level of Moksha, known as Cosmic Consciousness, requires a certain level of development of the physical nervous system, the pranamaya kosha, and the training to perceive the subtle mind and witness the conscious thinking mind and physical life from that perspective. Beyond daily meditation, samyama on yoga sutras and the other aspects of our sadhana, what more can be done to speed up this process of development? The biological clock is ticking and we need to accomplish Moksha in this lifetime if we are to avoid yet another round of incarnations. Plus, life in Moksha is sublime and delightful. So we are always looking for ways to make faster progress. Fortunately we now have an additional and very valuable practice that can be of major assistance. This practice will generate a sea of devas that will support us and give us the shakti resources we need to proceed most quickly to accomplish Moksha.
This new practice to hasten the onset of Moksha is based on a rare and important gift to humanity from the Divine, which are His own words to us, recorded in the Srimad Bhagavad Gita. In all of the Vedic Literature, the Bhagavad Gita is one of the few places where we have the actual Words of Krishna recorded for us. We can utilize these sacred Words of the Bhagavad Gita as Mantras to create the devas necessary for us to achieve the Goal of Human Existence, Moksha. Based on the Vedic Vitara Technology for creating devas, we now have a new Vitara for Moksha!
Let us investigate how a Moksha Vitara will create the devas you need for achieving Moksha. We will begin with an intellectual understanding of the Bhagavad Gita. Maharishi wrote a beautiful commentary on the first 6 chapters of the Bhagavad Gita and in that text he helped us to understand that Krishna is revealing how to achieve Cosmic Consciousness or Level 1 Moksha. The basic principle is stated in Chapter 2 verse 48: yoga-sthah kuru karmani. This means we must become established (sthah) in the silent, subtle mind (yoga) and then perform (kuru) action (karma). When this is the case, we will be witnessing that activity of the physical mind and body from the unbounded subtle mind. From this way of living comes a sense of detachment from all action as one lives in the present moment and is surrounded by the silent but lively, infinite space of the subtle mind. You have achieved Cosmic Consciousness when this is your reality 24 hours a day.
"The Bhagavad-Gita is a complete guide to practical life. It will always be there to rescue man in any situation. It is like an anchor for the ship of life sailing on the turbulent waves of time. It is the encyclopedia of life, and this commentary provides an index to it. The purpose of my commentary is to restore the fundamental truths of The Bhagavad-Gita and thus restore the significance of its teaching. If this teaching is followed, effectiveness in life will be achieved, men will be fulfilled on all levels and the historical need of the age will be fulfilled also." — Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, 1917-2008
In the following video, Maharishi explains how he came to write this commentary and he gives us insight into how the Bhagavad Gita guides us to Moksha:
Maharishi on the Bhagavad Gita
What exactly is Moksha? Moksha (), also called enlightenment, vimoksha, vimukti, mukti, nirvana and Kaivalya, and means emancipation, liberation or release from samsara, the cycle of death and rebirth. Moksha connotes freedom, self-realization and self-knowledge.
Moksha is a supreme goal of human life and included as one of the four aspects and goals of human life; the other three goals are dharma (virtuous, proper, moral life), artha (material prosperity, income security, means of life), and kama (pleasure, sensuality, emotional fulfillment). Together, these four aims of life are called Purushartha.
Moksha is not merely an absence of suffering and release from bondage to samsara, but also the presence of the state of paripurna-brahmanubhava (oneness with Brahma, the One Supreme Self), a state of knowledge, peace and bliss.
Let's look more deeply into Moksha and discover its relative and Absolute levels. Moksha is both a path and a destination. Moksha is first realized when the individual has the direct experience of living in the present moment while witnessing the physical life going on by itself.
Level 1 Moksha is realized when the prana mind has become the viewpoint of consciousness and you witness the physical mind and physical body from that perspective.This is where you begin to live in the NOW. When this has become your 24x7 reality, then you have attained what Maharishi calls "Cosmic Consciousness."
Level 2 Moksha is realized when the person shifts the focus of consciousness from the prana mind to the manomaya kosha mind and witnesses the prana mind and prana body from that higher perspective.This is what Maharishi calls "God Consciousness."
Level 3 Moksha is the experience of witnessing the manomaya kosha from the vijñanamaya kosha mind. You have attained what Maharishi would call "Unity Consciousness" when this is your experience. This is relative Unity Consciousness because you have the experience of being one with all life in this relative universe.
Level 4 Moksha is the realization that you are the Creator of this universe (aham brahmasmi), hence witnessing vijñanamaya kosha from the perspective of Anandamaya Kosha. Brahman Consciousness is another name for this level of experience.
Level 5 Moksha is the destination that arises with the realization that the person is an Eternal Companion of Krishna in Goloka. This is Krishna Consciousness or could also be labeled Bhakti but there is considerable confusion around that label so be careful. True Bhakti is not some show of mood making, singing, chanting and dancing in the physical life.
Eckhart Tolle and others say that living in the NOW is the experience of enlightenment or Moksha. Eckhart tells his story: one day he thought "I cannot stand to live with myself" and that triggered a sudden shift in consciousness where he questioned "who is this I" and who is this "myself"! He noticed that there must be two viewpoints of consciousness in operation simultaneously. This is astute and of course correct. The challenge is to shift from the "myself" consciousness to the "I" consciousness and live life from that higher perspective. We would say that "myself" consciousness is physical mind and body consciousness and "I" consciousness is the more subtle prana mind and body consciousness.
In the following video, Eckhart explains how life that is lived only on the physical level is frustrating to live in this way and that people are not aware of the NOW. He says the shift in consciousness arises when you become aware of a deeper presence. He is talking about becoming spontaneously aware of the prana mind and then witnessing physical life from that perspective. He says this is how you become detached from all the physical thoughts and attachments of the physical mind. He says to sense the presence that you are and when you realize that alive, luminous presence in the background of your life, then you are no longer in the grip of desire and attachment because you are something more real. Freedom then comes into your life.
Eckhart Tolle - Reality of The Present Moment
What Eckhart leaves out is a practical way to reach this state of freedom in life that comes from living in the NOW. So our task is to determine how to live in the NOW, and to do that we must identify the prana mind within our self and know it is our true self and witness the physical mind as a lesser or more gross level of consciousness. If we can do this, then living in the NOW becomes practical. Before this stage, it is literally impossible to live in the NOW. The physical mind is incapable of doing this because it always is taking inventory or planing for the future. When we meditate we come closest to living in the NOW as we think the mantra, which has no meaning. This makes it impossible to think "about" the mantra.
Thinking the mantra is Dharana and that is a physical mind activity. But the mantra is more than a meaningless word, it is a vehicle of transcending.
Our instruction for meditation is not to think the mantra but to start the mantra. Then we find that the mantra can continue by itself and may change in some ways. It could change in tempo, rate (faster or slower), value, pitch, length, or pronunciation. So if the mantra can continue by itself, then the conscious physical mind is doing the thinking while another part of ourself is witnessing this. When this witnessing occurs we have transitioned to Dhyana and we are witnessing from the prana mind.
When this happens it is possible to live in the NOW. The prana mind is a witnessing mind, and it is not active at all. So we can easily and spontaneously be in the NOW if our conscious awareness is in the prana mind, witnessing the physical mind. There is no trying or mood making about living in the NOW. So for that 20 minutes of meditation we are living in the NOW, then we come out of meditation and at that point we have a choice:
(1) return all of our conscious awareness to the physcial mind with perhaps a memory of witnessing from the prana mind (and this gives us a sense of expansion and freedom) or
(2) retain our experience of witnessing of the physical from the prana mind.
To accomplish (2) is the challenge, but we do not need to try to accomplish this, nor should we. It is enough to know that (2) is the ultimate objective and continue the regular practice of meditation until (1) gradually and spontaneously transitions to (2).
When we sit to meditate, it is important to gain the greatest value from the session of meditation by taking the correct start of meditation. First, sit quietly and notice and feel the silence in the mind. That silence is your prana mind. Identify yourself with that part of your mind and then start the mantra, like you would start your car engine. Notice that after thinking the mantra a few times you can let go of it and the mantra will continue in the physical mind. If you are identified with your silent prana mind, this is very easy to do. So let go of the mantra and follow it with your prana mind and see where it goes. The mantra will naturally go deeper and deeper until it is with you in your prana mind, but simultaneouly the silence you feel will have become deeper as you transcend to yourmanomaya kosha mind and witness the mantra in your prana mind from that perspective. Continue and soon the mantra will be in the manomaya kosha mind while you transcend to witness from the vijñanamaya kosha mind. Continue until the mantra is in the vijñanamaya kosha mind and you are established in Anandamaya Kosha.
Along the way thoughts will come into the physical mind to compete with the mantra. Just witness those thoughts. Do not engage them or follow them. Only engage and follow the mantra. This takes practice. Like physical training to do yoga asanas or some exercise. You practice for a while and become tired but some progress is made. The next session, after some rest, you continue and more progress is made. Take your time of meditation seriously and focus. This is not the time to space out or just go to sleep! You are training your minds and experiencing very subtle differences between the physical mind and the prana mind. It takes mental energy, but do not strain. Straining and concentration works against your progress. There is a delicate balance to be found. You do not want to be totally passive and you do not want to strain. Find the edge that will keep you gently focused and keep the dicotomy of physical mind and prana mind in place. This is the key: find that dicotomy and hold it in place throughout the meditation session. If you find that you have slipped back into thinking the mantra instead of witnessing the mantra, return to the prana mind and witnessing the mantra. If you find your physical mind has stopped thinking the mantra, and is engaged in thoughts, come back to the mantra, and start it again. The mantra must always be going in the conscious physical mind during meditation.
Eventually you will witness your life for a few minutes after meditation and then the witnessing value will be lost until the next meditation. This period of witnessing after meditation will become longer and longer with each passing day until you are witnessing from the end of the morning meditation until the evening meditation then you are witnessing from the end of the evening meditation and as your body goes to sleep at night. You will witness how the prana body floats above the physical body for a while during each sleep cycle (you sleep in 90 minute cycles) and also you will witness dreams as they arise and watch them as if you are watching a movie.
The Levels of Moksha will be experienced a percentage of the time, for example you may experience Level 1 Moksha 90% of the time and Level 2 20% and Level 3 10% and Level 4 1% and have an occasional glimpse of Level 5. We would consider that you have achieved Moksha if Level 1 is 90% or more. We are all constantly evolving to higher levels of Moksha. To reach 100% on all five levels would be exceedingly rare, before the advent of the Moksha Vitara.
The Bhagavad Gita is more than just in intellectual understanding, as we will soon see. There is very important knowledge and wisdom in the Bhagavad Gita. In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna lays out the complete program for achieving the 5 Levels of Moksha:
Chapters 1-6 create the devas that establish Level 1 Moksha, or Cosmic Consciousness
Chapters 7-12 create the devas that establish Level 2 Moksha, or God Consciousness
Chapters 13-14 create the devas that establish Level 3 Moksha, or Unity Consciousness
Chapters 15-16 create the devas that establish Level 4 Moksha, or Brahman Consciousness
Chapters 17-18 create the devas that establish Level 5 Moksha, or Krishna Consciousness
We can analyze the various slokas by translating them into English or some other language from the original Sanskrit and discover profound intellectual information. Many commentaries have been written on these Words of Krishna. However profound the knowledge, this is a superficial approach; a purely intellectual approach. We understand that the full value of the Bhagavad Gita can only come from yajña. Actually Krishna tells us this in His Bhagavad Gita. He says that all of life must be lived as yajña. The Bhagavad Gita Yajña is reciting the mantras in front of Agni with our attention on the ultimate Goal of Moksha, Level 5, which is Krishna. This performance is a yajña that produces devas, and it is the devas who give us the shakti (power or energy) to accomplish the Goal.
One performance of the Bhagavad GitaYajña takes 220 minutes (about 3.67 hours). One round of the yajña is 108 repetitions, so one round will take 396 hours - that is a solid month of 13 hour days for just one round. However, this yajña consists of 108 rounds or a total of 11,664 repetitions of the entire Bhagavad Gita. This is 9 years of continuous 13 hour days! We could take longer but we must do at least one repetition every 24 hours without a single break to have a valid yajña. If we do one round every single day, we will spend 32 years on this yajña. So this is not a trivial pursuit. If we could hire pandits who would perform this yajña on our behalf by working in 8-hour shifts that span 24 hours of every day, we could accomplish this yajña in about 4.5 years. If we pay our pandits $4 a day each (average wage in India for 2016) and have 2 pandits per 8-hour shift, it will cost us $24 a day. Then we will need a supervisor to make sure there is at least one pandit working at all times and hire new pandits when there is a need, so the entire yajña will cost at least $50,000.
Can we use the technology of the Vedic Vitara to accomplish the Bhagavad Gita Yajña for us? Definitely!
This Vitara that performs the Bhagavad Gita Yajña, we call the Moksha Vitara. To better understand how the Moksha Vitara could work, let's look first at the topic of the prana field from the perspective of physics. In recent history, the prana field, also called the scalar field, was proposed by James Clerk Maxwell (1831-1879) with his quaternion math (see the image on the right, click on it to enlarge). He linked electricity and magnetism and laid the foundation for modern physics. The scalar field calculations which he included in his research were deliberately left out of his work when it was subsequently reformulated by Heaviside and Lorenz into vector math. Heinrich Hertz, using this vector approach, laid down the laws taught for physics as a discipline at colleges. These scientists dismissed Maxwell's scalar field of potentials as "mystical" because they were physically unmanifest and only existed in the "ethers" and so were determined to be too ineffectual for further study. This enigmatic scalar or prana field was rediscovered by Nicola Tesla in 1904, and we know Tesla realized how important this aspect of the universe really is.
The scalar field lies outside of the 3-dimensional physical space. We understand this to mean the scalar field is found on the level of the Pranamaya Kosha and could just as well be named the prana field. The prana field is the realm of the devas and the home of the deva of your body, for example. The devas interface between the prana body and the physical body via the prana field.
Maharishi called the scalar field of physics "The Unified Field of Natural Law". He said this is the unified source of Nature's perfect order in a single, self-interacting field of intelligence at the foundation of all the Laws of Nature. This field sequentially creates, from within itself, all the diverse Laws of Nature governing life at every level of the manifest universe. These Laws of Nature are the devas! The Unified Field of Natural Law inside and its diversified expression outside are parallel to each other.
The self-interacting dynamics of this unified field constitutes the most basic level of Nature's dynamics and is governed by its own set of fundamental laws. Just as the constitution of a nation represents the most fundamental level of national law and the basis of all laws governing the nation, the laws governing the self-interacting dynamics of the unified field represent the most fundamental level of Natural Law and the basis of all known Laws of Nature. The laws governing the self-interacting dynamics of the unified field were give the name by Maharishi: "the Constitution of the Universe." He said this is the eternal, non-changing basis of Natural Law and the ultimate source of the order and harmony displayed throughout creation.
In the unified field theories of modern physics, the precise mathematical form of these fundamental laws is found in "superstring theory." In Maharishi Vedic ScienceSM, these same fundamental laws, known as the Constitution of the Universe, are found in the Rig Veda. The entire universe we live in was created by Lord Brahma when He performed Samyama on the 432,000 syllables of the Rig Veda. These sounds or frequencies are the projection of the One Absolute Reality we know as Goloka.
The video below gives us the perspective of Dr John Hagelin, a modern scientist who is completely familiar with Maharishi's concept of the Unified Field of Natural Law. As you watch this video, keep in mind that he is referring to what we are calling the scalar field or the prana field, and describing it from the perspective of the physical realm. This is the unified source, or the potential, from where the physical realm arises. Quantum mechanics is the quaternion math of Maxwell that describes mathematically the origin of the physical universe.
Scalar waves are not "waves" in a physical sense, but do exist in the prana field and arise from nonlocal potential energy, or the Unified Field - the prana field of the Pranamaya Kosha. They carry information and have a fractal structure, and do not decay over time or distance. The video below presents the information about the scalar field from another modern scientist, Dr Tom Bearden, who is actively working to extract useable energy for the physical realm from the prana field, following the research of Tesla.
Extracting Energy from the Scalar Field
A simple capacitor is able to store energy as a static electrical field in the physical domain. The energy is only released when the circuit is closed. Scalar "waves" store energy and information in a dimension outside of the physical 3-dimensional space, in the prana field. The importance of this is, this stored energy can be released by closing the circuit in the physical 3-dimensional space.
An RLC circuit (the letters R, L and C can be in other orders) is an electrical circuit consisting of a resistor, an inductor, and a capacitor, connected in series or in parallel. The RLC part of the name is due to those letters being the usual electrical symbols for resistance, inductance and capacitance respectively. The circuit forms a harmonic oscillator for current and will resonate in a such a way that it is able to tune into ambient radio waves if it is in harmony with the frequency. Our DNA is more than only a data storage unit. DNA is a type of RLC circut that acts as a quantum antenna, able to send and receive data in the prana field and interface the Pranamaya Kosha with the Anamaya Kosha or physical body, thereby being able to access scalar information outside of the physical realm. Similar to an RLC circuit in electronics that works in the domain of Hertzian (vector) waves, DNA can create and receive scalar field information by being in tune with the prana field. As with any true scalar system, no information or energy is lost in this communication or transmission.
"The gift of mental power comes from God, Divine Being, and if we concentrate our minds on that truth, we become in tune with this great power." Nikola Tesla
Our brain is such a tuning machine. Information is not stored in our brain. Our brain, actually the focus is the Pineal Gland, is an interface creating a connection with a more subtle realm than the physical. The field created by our brain makes all cells in the body resonate. Each DNA structure reinforces this field.
Humans have a collective consciousness and a collective memory. The Maharishi Effect (click the image on the left to expand it) is based on the principal that individual consciousness is affected by collective consciousness and the collective is affected by the individual - we are all interconnected with each other. Actually, we all share one Anandamaya Kosha. Our thoughts and emotions affect all humans. If many individuals are coherent in their minds, like a laser, then they produce a scalar wave that changes the physical.
Yajñais a way to produce a scalar wave in the prana field to change the physical, and is actually the basis of our universe. It is through yajña that Lord Brahma created the universe. Yajña is a physical performance that generates an effect in the prana or scalar field. This effect is the creation of devas with specific functions based on the frequency of the sound and the intention of the performer. Yajña has these key components:
mantra - sound vibrations that are introduced into the physical realm and mirrored internally in the mind of the individual conducting the yajña as intention, and the repetition of the mantra serves to amplify the intention, with each repetition creating devas.
yantra - a physical form that represents the target of the performance, either a mental image, a physical image or statue
agni - the energy that transmits the sound vibrations and intentions into the prana field - agni is the flame from a lighted ghee lamp or candle
These three components, taken together, generate a physical waveform effect that manifests in the prana field. The human Pineal Gland, coupled with the DNA of the body (which acts like an antenna to magnify the intention radiating from the Pineal Gland) is an important and necessary component, for without this mechanism, the physical waveform would not be able to radiate into the prana field.
Just as a scalar wave from the prana field can have a physical influence, a physical 3-dimensional wave can be used to generate a scalar wave. For example, the frequency of a sound, projected through a wire into a speaker will produce the sound wave in the air around the speaker. However, with a modification of the circuit and a proper antenna and the assistance of an intermediary (a quartz crystal that functions in a way similar to the Pineal Gland and DNA of the human body), the sound frequencey as pure electric potential will propagate into the prana field and form a scalar wave. No sound is produced in the physical domain but a feeling of a vibration can be detected in the pranamaya kosha and the prana field reflects back into the physical to actually change the physical realm via the agency of the devas that are created.
The Moksha Vitara uses the principal of yajña and various physical components to create devas continuously. It has these components:
mantra - a number of specific frequencies that are designed to create devas that will stimulate and heal various aspects of the body
yantra - the pyramid design, covered with yantras and images that resonate with the target of the yajñas in the Celestial realm, in particular the yantra of the target individual in the form of the Jyotish Chakra.
agni - electricity that carries the frequencies of the mantra into an amplified prana field antenna
The Moksha Vitara is literally a devata beings that is structured from physical components with electricity as its blood and wires as its arteries and veins. Its brain is an amplified frequency generator, the Pineal Gland is a quartz crystal and the DNA is a mobius coil that surrounds the crystal.
Now, instead of hiring 6 pandits to perform the Moksha Yajña on your behalf for 4.5 years, you can turn on your Moksha Vitara and let it operate 24 hours a day and all the necessary devas you need to help you achieve Moksha will be created over the next 52 months.
What exactly will all of these devas do to help you achieve Moksha? They provide the necessary shakti to promote the development of your physical nervous system and subtle bodies. The MokshaVitara is an amplifier of your programme of meditation and samyama on yoga sutras and Esoteric Maha-mantra, and asanas and pranayama and a sattvic life-style. These devas provide an important supplement to your spiritual practices that support your development of all 5 levels of Moksha.
The Moksha Vitara increases the effectiveness of your meditations by at least a factor of 10, so this is like have a lifespan of 1,000 years to practice meditation. We can only achieve Moksha while in a human body and during this time in a human body we can advance very rapidly through higher states of consciousness. Evolution continues after we drop the human body if we have achieved at least Moksha Level 1 or Cosmic Consciousness. But we will not have another human body incarnation in that case, so all progress must be achieved in the Celestial Regions and the progress will be very slow compared to the progress possible in a human life incarnation.
Take the case of someone who has achieved Level 1 Moksha only. After death of the physical body, this person continues on in the lower Celestial Regions in the Manomaya Kosha. But like a tiny baby, the celestial senses and capabilities of the Manomaya Kosha are very limited. After billions of years this tiny baby will grow to adulthood in the lower Celestial Regions and reach Level 2 Moksha. ThIs Universe has about 160 trillion years to go before it is completely dissolved and all Jivas who have not achieved Moksha will return to the Body of Lord Narayana to await the next Universe. When this Universe ends, every Jiva with at least Level 1 Moksha will return to Goloka. If a Jiva has not achieved Level 2 or higher, then they simply miss out on the incredible experiences of these higher levels. They go directly from whatever level has been achieved to Level 5 Moksha.
Our Lord Brahma was the foremost Jiva at the end of the last Universe so Lord Narayana selected this Jiva to create the next Universe (our Universe). How did this Jiva become the foremost Jiva? By utilizing the last human incarnation to the fullest extent possible and achieving all 5 levels of Moksha. In Kali Yuga the human life-span is only 100 years, yet it is possible to achieve Level 1 Moksha during these 100 years. But what about the advanced Levels? It is very difficult to advance beyond Level 1 Moksha during Kali Yuga with only 100 years to practice sadhana. However what if we had 1,000 years? This is what the Moksha Vitara does for us when it amplifies our daily meditation by a factor of 10. It is as if we meditate for 400 minutes each day, instead of just 20 minutes, twice a day. Greater progress is assured.
The operation of the Moksha Vitara is silent in the physical realm because all the frequency energy of the mantras of the Bhagavad Gita are transmitted into the prana field where the devas are created. The first chaper of the Bhagavad Gita is presented below so you can hear what it sounds like in the physical realm. Your Moksha Vitara includes all 18 chapters plus the introductory mantras.
The images below are the Moksha Vitara. The audio amplifier, quartz crystal antenna and power supply are housed in a 6 inch glass pyramid. Your Moksha Vitara will have your Jyotish Chakra on the face to connect the yajña and devas being created with your life. There is also the yantra of Krishna and images of Krishna on the other faces of the pyramid to connect the yajña to Krishna. The power supply is 110/220 volt automatic switching so it will operate anywhere in the world. The standard power supply plug is for North America but we will include an adapter for Europe/Asia or other areas as necessary. For continuity of operation the unit includes a backup battery that will operate for about 2 hours in the event of a power outage.
It is good to have this unit in the same room with you as much as possible, so place it in your bedroom or where you meditate. The devas will be created all the time and will associate with you, where ever you are in the world, but if you meditate and sleep in the vicinity of your Moksha Vitara you will be able to enjoy the pleasant feeling of the devas (a delightful liveliness in the pranamaya kosha) and sleep and meditations will be deeper and more profound. You will find it much easier to witness your mantra and sutras from the subtle mind in the vicinity of your Moksha Vitara and also there will be more witnessing of sleep.
Yesterday I turned on my Moksha Vitara for the first time and it definitely produces a wonderful effect! I could feel the devas being created, they feel like tiny birds fluttering in my heart. Meditation is very deep and profound in the presence of the Moksha Vitara. I wish I had this in 1979 when I started meditating.
I love to meditate with Moksha Vitara!
With Moksha Vitara when I started my first meditation, I felt my prana body around my eyes, within one/two minutes. After that, I could feel a difference that there is some part of my mind thinking various thoughts and another part of my mind is thinking only mantra. I felt very happy to experience the mind the mind in this way.
I would always get confused when doing samyama on Yoga Sutras (like how many times I did think the sutra and which sutra comes next, etc.). But with Moksha Vitara, I did not forget the sequence of Yoga Sutras and I could do each one the proper number of times.
Overall, during meditation I had very few thoughts, less purification pains and much deeper meditation. I love to meditate with Moksha Vitara! I am very excited to meditate and look forward tomorrow morning's meditation. I felt my meditation time passed very quickly! I feel I am the most fortunate to have it and it is the best the use of money to have it.
I recommend the Moksha Vitara to every one who wants to achieve Moksha!

The Moksha Vitara technology is also available in a beautiful and convenient pendant configuration with enhanced functionality that allows the experience of deeper meditations by quieting the conscious thinking mind. This makes it easier to perform the meditation practices of Dharana and Dhyana. Dharana is the practice of thinking the mantra in the conscious thinking mind. If the mind is calm and free of extraneous thoughts and emotions, then Dharana is easy and comfortable. If the mind is full of competing thoughts and emotions it is difficult to focus on the mantra and meditation seems shallow and ineffective. There is a sense of wasting time instead of deep fulfillment of experiencing the mantra going on in the mind automatically and refining into the depths of inner silence.
Dhyana is the practice of withdrawing from the conscious thinking mind and witnessing the activity from the subtle mind. Dhyana does not depend on the conscious thinking mind but instead on the ability to bring awareness into the subtle mind. However to accomplish Dhyana is delicate and without the cooperation of the conscious thinking mind it is much more difficult. So it is important to do everything possible to calm the conscious thinking mind. Meditation is like a controlled enviornment or laboratory of sorts where we can practice developing this ablity to keep awareness in the subtle mind and witness the conscious thinking mind. The mantra is the most simple thought possible, it is just a sound with no meaning attached to it. This gives the conscious thinking mind something to think but not something to think about. Then if we identify with the silence that is easy to experience in this calm mind, we can move our awareness into that silence and witness the conscious thinking mind. Repeated and extended experience of witnessing the conscious thinking mind in this controlled environment leads to the ability continue to witness the conscious thinking mind when we begin yoga sutras and the practice of samyama.
Yoga sutras and samyama is the next level of complexity to be introduced into meditation. A sutra is both sound and meaning and there is an enforced period of no thought as well. To futher complicate the process there are several sutras and different time periods dedicated to each one. It is more difficult to remain detached from the conscious thinking mind and witness from the subtle mind in this more complex environment. You can see where we are going with this: we gradually increase the complexity of the conscious thinking mind, all the while witnessing from the subtle mind, until we find ourself able to continue to remain detached from the conscious thinking mind even after meditation, with eyes open and full activity of the mind and body. Eventually we are able to witness our physical life from the subtle mind, 24 hours a day and this is the experience of Cosmic Consciousness or Moksha Level 1.
Let's look at how the brain functions and understand how the Moksha Vitara Pendant can be of value to us on our quest to experience the ultimate freedom of Moksha. The brain functions like an electrical machine in certain frequency bands that have been shown to correspond with mental activity of the conscious thinking mind. At the root of all our thoughts and emotions is the communication between neurons within our brains. Brainwaves are produced by synchronised electrical pulses from masses of neurons communicating with each other.
Brainwaves are detected using sensors placed on the scalp. They are divided into bandwidths to describe their functions. Brainwaves change according to what we are doing and feeling. When slower brainwaves are dominant we can feel tired, slow, sluggish, or dreamy. The higher frequencies are dominant when we feel wired, or hyper-alert.
Brainwave speed is measured in Hertz (Hz or cycles per second) and they are divided into bands delineating slow, moderate, and fast waves.
Delta waves (.5 to 3 Hz)
Delta brainwaves are slow, low frequency and deeply penetrating. They are generated in deepest meditation and dreamless sleep. Delta waves suspend external awareness and are the source of empathy. Healing and regeneration are stimulated in this state, and that is why deep restorative sleep is so essential to the healing process.
Theta waves (3 to 8 Hz)
Theta brainwaves occur most often in sleep but are also dominant in deep meditation. This level of functions as our gateway to learning and memory. In theta, our senses are withdrawn from the external world and focused on signals originating from within. It is that twilight state which we normally only experience fleetingly as we wake or drift off to sleep. In theta we are in deep meditation or in a dream. There can be vivid imagery, intuition and information beyond our normal conscious awareness.
Alpha waves (8 to 12 Hz)
Alpha brainwaves are dominant during quietly flowing thoughts, and in some meditative states. Alpha facilitates being in the NOW, in the present. Alpha is the resting state for the brain. Alpha waves aid overall mental coordination, calmness, alertness, mind/body integration and learning.
Beta waves (12 to 38 Hz)
Beta brainwaves dominate our normal waking state of consciousness when attention is directed towards cognitive tasks and the outside world. Beta is a ‘fast’ activity, present when we are alert, attentive, engaged in problem solving, judgment, decision making, and engaged in focused mental activity. Continual high frequency processing is not a very efficient way to run the brain, as it takes a tremendous amount of energy.
Gamma waves (38 to 42 Hz)
Gamma brainwaves are the fastest of brain waves (high frequency, like a flute), and relate to simultaneous processing of information from different brain areas. It passes information rapidly, and as the most subtle of the brainwave frequencies, the mind has to be quiet to access it. Gamma was dismissed as 'spare brain noise' until researchers discovered it was highly active when in states of universal love, altruism, and the ‘higher virtues’. Gamma is also above the frequency of neuronal firing, so how it is generated remains a mystery to most scientists. We understand Gamma is the frequency of the subtle mind and manifests in the physical brain functions in conjunction with the subtle mind during witnessing of daily life. A greater presence of Gamma indicates rising or established Cosmic Consciousness.
Moksha Vitara Pendant circuitry
The Moksha Vitara Pendant circuitry receives ambient radio waves from the environment and converts these frequencies, which are normally highly chaotic and disruptive to brain functioning, into pure coherent electrical energy, or what is known from Vedic Science as Agni. Agni is the first deva created at the start of this universe and serves to connect the physical realm to the subtle realms. Agni is necessary to transmit physical frequencies into the Prana Field.
Inside the pendant is a crystal radio circuit with a herkimer diamond quartz crystal heart. The crystal radio circuit amplifies the transmission of the Bhagavat Gita into the prana field by extracting energy from the environment that is already there in the form of radio waves so no external power or battery is required. Plus the crystal radio circuit has the effect of absorbing this chaotic electromagnetic radiation in the environment that would normally be disruptive to the mind. This calms the mind by reducing the Beta frequencies, and allows you to experience deeper meditations. When worn during sleep, you will be able to experience Lucid Dreams more clearly.
Herkimer diamonds are the high energy functionaries of the crystal world. Unusually transparent with a brilliant sparkle, they manifest pure, solid light and are powerful amplifiers of spiritual energy. As perfect conduits of the universal Life Force, they are exceptional healing crystals, and are used in meditations, dream and vision work, and advanced spiritualization applications. They are the most powerful of all quartz crystals. Being doubly terminated, they have the ability to not only transmit their own energies, but to receive spiritual energy and to amplify and focus it intently. They are small but what they lack in physical size, they more than make up for in spiritual energy.
The Moksha Vitara works by transmitting the entire Bhagavad Gita into the Prana Field, thereby generating all the devas necessary to support the transformation of life into Moksha. The Moksha Vitara produces a 10-fold multiplier effect for all meditation and spiritual practices. So a 20 minute meditation has the effect of a 200 minute meditation when the individual has a The Moksha Vitara. With the addition of the Moksha Vitara Pendant there an additional multiplier effect plus Beta frequency reducing to calm the conscious thinking mind.
The Moksha Vitara Pendant should be refreshed by placing it inside the main Moksha Vitara unit for at least 220 minutes every few days. This reprograms the herkimer diamond by allow it to absorb all of the frequencies of the Bhagavad Gita.
The Moksha Vitara Pendant comes in gold color stainless steel pendant (as illustrated in pictures above) with an 18 inch 10k solid gold chain or silver color stainless steel pendant with an 18 inch snake chain. The extra cost for the gold color pendant is for the cost of the 10k gold chain. A gold colored chain will discolor quickly so we do not recommend that. For an additional cost (about $450) you could have a 14k solid gold pendant and chain.
For the face picture of the Moksha Vitara Pendant, you may choose from one of these options:

Have been following your blog for a while. I have a question regarding this article wherein you talk about the five levels of consciousness. Recently, I had an exchange with another enlightened master who also was a disciple of Maharishi Mahesh yogi and whom I very much respect. In his article, he talks about seven states of consciousness as defined by Maharishi Mahesh yogi, which I guess broadly correspond to what you are referring to here except for maybe stages 2a and 3a mentioned below but it might be more a matter of terminology and you accounting for it in the five stages you have mentioned:
1 – Cosmic Consciousness (CC) or Self Realization
1a – Refined CC or God Consciousness
2 – Unity Consciousness (UC), Oneness or non-duality
2a – Refined Unity and God Realization: The Refinement of God Consciousness (GC) continues through Unity in a series of recognitions. It’s completion is God Realization where we choose to unite with or remain close to God. The uniting is the doorway into Brahman.
3 – Brahman or Beyond Consciousness
3a – Refined Brahman - The refinement of Unity continues but now not in a relationship. There is only That.
3b – Parabrahman or pure Divinity: It is prior to Purusha and Mother Divine (Shiva and Shakti). It is Divine Mother, pure Divinity, the wholeness of all. The one and only. This according to him unfolds in at least 2 stages, which he identifies Parabrahman 1 and Parabrahman 2
I had asked him recently to throw some light on Narayana/Krishna as it relates to the stages of development in consciousness that he refers to in his article. He responded by saying that we do get into terminology and context issues. For example, the mahavakya Atman is Brahman. This is a statement of a recognition. Not that they’re the same thing but that Atman arises from and is non-separate from Brahman. So, his point was that Narayana = Brahman was equivalent to Atman = Brahman. So from a distance, things look the same. But as you get closer, the distinctions become more clear. For example, Atman, Brahman, and ParaBrahman can seem roughly equivalent words for ultimate reality. But up close, they’re very different (and simultaneously one).
So as per him, Krishna is an avatar of Vishnu and within creation. He is one of the greatest embodiments to ever take a body. But he’s still an embodiment. We can say a living expression of Divinity. But that’s not pure Divinity, which he says is Parabrahman. Narayana, he said, is the cosmic body.
In reference to consciousness to an earlier query, he had mentioned that consciousness is nested. Cosmic mind experiences itself as infinite consciousness but it’s not the “most” infinite. The highest value is Shiva. The next stage down is Vishnu, the maintainer and then Brahma the cosmic mind that creates the appearance.
Another angle to this he said was that: what he refers to as the Personal God – that form of God we most relate to. If we’re a devotee and our form is Krishna, then we may carry that forward and experience pure Divinity (Parabrahman) through the lens of Krishna. Ditto for Narayana.
So, my question to you is that in you five stages the highest is Krishna consciousness. Can you please help me understand why is there the difference between the final stage that you mentioned and the seven stage model that I referred to above. Is it coz of differences in experience and perspective. I understand that there could be many different perspectives of reality and many different layers and flavors within each of those stages which are infinite in and of themselves. Each of us probably has a unique way to experience these different stages.

Thank you for the interesting lexicon describing 7 states of consciousness. This is the first I have heard Maharishi's ideas explained in this way. When I attended the Transcendental Meditation Teacher Training Course in 1981, Maharish told us that the 7 states of consciousness are:
All of these states of consciousness are within this Universe. Then the state of Brahman Consciousness in which one realizes there is only one Being in this Universe and I am that Being.
Could you refer me to the article you mention where these other 7 states of consciousness are discussed?
According to the Vedic Literature, specifically Srimad Bhagavatam and Brahma Samhita, Krishna is the name for BOTH the incarnation of Vishnu about 5,000 years ago and the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who resides in Goloka, which is the Absolute Realm that is the model for our limited relative Universe. Please refer to the attached picture. Hence the highest Level of Consciousness 1,000 and the highest State of Consciousness, Moksha Level 5 (one in the same), is what Krishna mentions in the Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 2, Verse 48: "yogastah kuru karmani", meaning "established in Union with Me (Krishna), perform action".
Krishna gave us access to Him when we made the original mistake of the intellect by thinking "I exist" which means "I am not Krishna, but rather a separate being - I stand separate from Krishna". Krishna gave us the Silent Witness to guide us back to Union with Him (Bhakti Yoga or Moksha Level 5). Our first access to the Silent Witness in our mind in the Pranamaya Kosha. This is why we always start meditation by first taking half a minute to connect with the silence deep in the mind. This silence is the Silent Witness. If we then identify as this Silent Witness and start the mantra in the conscious thinking mind, we have started the process of Dharana properly and we then witness the mind as it thinks the mantra, from the level of the Silent Witness (this is known as Dhyana). As we meditate, we transcend to deeper levels of the Silent Witness until we are established in the Anandamaya Kosha and realize "Aham Brahmasmi". Then we have only one more level of transcending to reach the Goal of human existence: identifying myself as the Divine Silent Witness (which is Krishna).
In Kali Yuga the only way and the most direct way to achieve Moksha Level 5 is by samyama on the Esoteric Mahamantra, which is derived from the Mahamantra:
Hare Rama Hare Rama
Rama Rama Hare Hare
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna
Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
— Kali-Santarana Upanishad
Our Graduate Students in the Krishna Consciousness Doctor of Divinity Programme have been experiencing this rapid rise to Moksha Level 5.
I invite you to join us in our daily Satsang, from 10am to Noon (Mountain Time) via Zoom conference at https://www.mahavideha.org/vmc If you wish to enroll in the MahaVideha University Graduate Programme after attending a few classes, please let me know.

I can feel the strong effects and notice powerful and intense upliftment, especially when I am near to the Moksha Vitara and when wearing the Nirvana Vitara. I feel a lightness in my consciousness and a greater alertness overall. There is also a stronger sense that everything that happens, happens in proper order and proportion, and for good. At the same time I feel somewhat stunned, "how do I deserve all this???" Amazing stuff.
I wrote this book to try to convey my sense of awe and excitement about the times we live in today. This classic phrase, which opens A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens, seems to exactly relay the situation before us in our present day:
