Pañcasiṃhāsana vidyāḥ पंच सिंहासन विद्या 

 

Pañcasiṃhāsana vidyāḥ refers to the study of the five thrones of Śrī Lalitā Devi. The thrones are also signified as Pañca Pretā-s or five bodies. The bodies are of Śrī Brahma, Viṣṇu, Rudra, Īśvara and Sadāśiva. The meaning behind this, is that She is the power of all the deities signified as Pañca Pretā-s. For instance, the Creator Brahma carries out all the tasks through His śakti/power, who is known as Vāmā devi or Sarasvatī. Without His śakti, He is lifeless and a preta. Likewise, Vaiṣṇavī is the power of Viṣṇu and is endowed with the responsibility of Sustenance and Preservation. Rudrāṇi for Rudra, who takes care of Destruction. Īśvari for Īśvara with the responsibility of Annihilation and Transformation and lastly, Mahāmāyā for Sadāśiva, who takes care of Creation once again.

The Pañca Pretā-s are aspects of Nirguṇa Brahman, Who is devoid of all qualities and is pure bliss and is the Static Superconsciousness. Likewise, Śakti is Saguṇa Brahman with all qualities and is therefore the Dynamic Superconsciousness. All the śakti-s of the Pañca Pretā-s are aspects of Śrī Lalitā Devi, Who is Śakti Herself. The five thrones/siṃhāsana-s are representations of Her power and Her lordship over all aspects of the manifested reality. Each siṃhāsana corresponds to one of the Mahā-Pañca-Pretā-s.

The mantra for the Mahā-Pañca-Pretāsana is –

hsauḥ sadāśiva mahāpada-pretāsanāya namaḥ

ह्सौः सदाशिव महापदप्रेतासनाय नमः

The bīja ‘hsauḥ’ is the Prasāda-para mantra signifying high levels of consciousness. The Divine Mother Śrī Lalitā Devi, is to be prayed daily and invited to take up Her high seat with this mantra and bless the entire Creation.

As per Jñānārṇava Tantra, The first Siṃhāsana (A throne resembling a lion seat or adorned with lion carvings, befitting an emperor King/Queen) is the East facing pūrva siṃhāsana. This siṃhāsana corresponds to Lord Brahma, the Creator. The mantras for this throne start with Śrī Tripura Bālā. It is stated, that one who obtains the blessings of Śrī Bālā, gains the wisdom of Bṛhaspati, the celebrated guru of all the celestial surā-s/gods. Bṛhaspati is also the controller of the effects of the planet Jupiter and its effect on our individual horoscope as well as its various astrological applications. Planet Jupiter is considered the most benefic amongst all the planets/graha-s. The significance of Śrī Bālā is enormous and quintessential for our ...Read More

Will You Come Back Guruji - Part 1

Thursday, March 29, 2012

Part 1

Guruji in the horizon is a short story about a rustic boy ultimately transforming into a Spiritual Guru. The story will be published as a series, containing a number of parts. Here is part 1:

It is yet another day.  I always like the dawn - the creeks of birds, misty leaves and the redness of the dawn. Red stands for compassion.  I used to wonder how the sun being so red at the time of dawn gradually turns white.  I live near river Cauvery. It is good to walk on the sandy river bed.  The tiny sand grains acupressure my feet and I used to enjoy this.  The river was flowing with the rustic sound that changes every minute.  In the river bed, I perform my yogic exercises.  I prefer the river bed as you have plenty of natural unpolluted air around.  The more oxygen intake helps to rejuvenate the body better. When I begin ...Read More

AVADHŪTA GĪTĀ - 7

Sunday, March 12, 2017

Bhagavān Dattātreya continues:  

Upaniṣad-s explain how māyā projects objects as different things from Brahman (It is the māyā that makes us to think that the objects we see are real and different from Brahman; the fact is that everything is Brahman, hence It is called Omnipresent or all pervasive). Brahman is not divisible (hence omnipresent) and hence, there cannot be any comparison for a non-dual Brahman (comparison is possible only if more than one object is present). It is free from actions ...Read More

PATANJALI YOGA SUTRAS - 10

Sunday, May 07, 2017

Samādhi is attained through the mind that is free from all kinds of thought processes or desires. If the mind has traces of thought processes or desires, they will disturb samādhi after sometime. First ten or fifteen minutes of samādhi is important. Thoughts, if any, compromise the quality of samādhi during this time. (Different types of samādhi-s are discussed in GURUJI SPEAKS). Patañjali speaks about dharmamegha samādhi ...Read More

Finding God - 1

Thursday, February 19, 2009

There are various steps to become a yogi. To become a yogi we need guidance from another yogi, who is called spiritual Guru. We have discussed certain things in my earlier postings like Self Realisation. Now, we will go a little deep into this subject. First step is to understand consciousness thoroughly. This plays an important role in various stages of meditation. The consciousness can be defined as “understanding the subject and the object”. The consciousness cannot be defined with a relative term. This can also be interpreted as “knowing your self”. In Sanskrit, consciousness is referred as “cit”. The word “cit” can be defined as ‘self knowing self’.

Giving a proper explanation or understanding the explanation is difficult. But without understanding this, we cannot proceed further. ‘Knowing your self’ and ‘self knowing self’ is one and the same. Here the second usage of self means Atman. Consciousness is not Atman. Consciousness or cit is trying to know the atman. How is that Self appearing? It is ‘prakasha’. Prakasha means light. So, the consciousness or cit is trying to know the Self which is in the form of light. It is just not another light. This light is self illuminating and also illuminates things around it. Does it not sound like our electrical lights? When a bulb is burning, we see the burning bulb and also the things around that bulb, because of the light from the bulb. With our eyes we see both, the subject and object, whereas the Self or atman is only the subject and there is no object to see here. This is what Kato Upanishad also says. Whatever we see around us is due to the illuminating inner Self or atman. The illuminating atman cannot be seen with our physical eyes.

We can see this only with our consciousness. With consciousness we can see the ...Read More

Ashwatthama – The Saptarishi of 8th Manvantara

Theory And Practice of Kundalini Meditation - Introduction

Saturday, July 13, 2013

Kuṇḍalinī is not just a force, but Parāśakti Herself in Her subtlest form. It is one of the quickest methods to liberation. Even without practicing kuṇḍalinī, She ascends to higher chakras depending upon one’s level of love (the highest form of devotion) for Her. Ascension of kuṇḍalinī is directly related to the purity level of one’s mind. Yoga Cūḍāmaṇi Upaniṣad talks abou90t the importance of kuṇḍalinī. Verse 37 says, “Kuṇḍalinī rests in the passage of Brahman. If one goes through this passage, Brahman is attained.” Passage of Brahman that is referred here ...Read More

ATMA BODHA - THE EPILOGUE

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Śaṃkarācārya who had authored many works on dvaita or dualism such as Saundaryalaharī, etc. had also authored Supreme Advaita Scriptures or non-dualistic Scriptures like Ātmabodhaḥ, Tattvabodhaḥ, Vivekacūḍamaṇi, etc. What is the need for Śaṃkarācārya to author both dualistic and non-dualistic Scriptures? He was a loka Guru (Guru for the world) and he had the dual responsibility of developing bhakti (devotion) and at the same time, leading elevated souls to the path of ...Read More

Spiritual Journey - 20

Sunday, January 01, 2017

Avadhūta and Paramahaṁsa are essentially jīvanmukta-s. After evolving into a jīvanmukta, one decides how he or she pursues his or her life, till he or she becomes videhamukta (mokṣa – after death). Only a yogi can evolve into a jīvanmukta. A perfect yogi is the one, who has realized the Self within. He is shaped into a yogi by his Guru, without whom, imparting higher spiritual knowledge and practice is not possible. All Advaita Scriptures ultimately convey that Brahman is within and what is within, pervades the entire universe. This essence is conveyed to his disciples by a Guru. There are hundreds of Scriptures in Advaita such as Upaniṣad-s, Bhagavad Gītā, Yoga Vāsiṣṭha, Pañcadaśi, etc. Each of these Scriptures reveal Brahman ...Read More
