A MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR OF AURO-MA-RAMALINGAM.ORG
“If thy aim be great and thy means small, still act; for by action alone these can increase to thee.”
– Sri Aurobindo
Dear Friends and New Age Spiritual Colleagues,
I am glad to unveil the soft launch of this, still-a-lot-to-be-perfected, website today i.e. on 5th Oct 07, which is the birthday of Swami Ramalingam (popularly called as Vallalar) to all the spiritual aspirants of this New Age of Supramental Truth-Evolution.
As the name shows, this site is dedicated in diffusing the Supramental ideals, teachings, realizations, Consciousness of Sri Aurobindo, Mother, Swami Ramalingam and Saint Thirumoolar, together with it’s evolutionary impact and visible actions on the earth-consciousness and it’s inhabitants. Being a scientific and spiritual site, with a focus on the evolutionary science of human beings, it is meant to the entire humanity irrespective of the divisive barriers of religion, race, nationality, gender, caste, colour, social and economic status etc, etc.
To cut the long story into short, the Supramental Deathless Divine Body Realization of Swami Ramalingam (Vallalar) in the 18th century and earlier by Saint Thirumoolar in the 6th century A.D., together with their supramental-spiritual literature works, which are in the ancient Tamil language, are not yet clearly and widely known to the outside world, particularly to the new age International spiritual seekers
in English and other World languages. Even in India and amongst the Tamil-speaking community, Swami Ramalingam’s (Vallalar) unparallel Supramental-Spiritual achievements and works – from the utility of its’ evolutionary effects on the earth and human race – are not fully understood and recognized. Among the common public, He is mostly revered and known as a devotional literary and social figure, with revolutionary ideas for Society and Humanity, during his visible
physical lifetime in the troubled period of 18th Century.
Since most of their spiritual literature is in the form of Tamil poetry, with esoteric and symbolic meanings, it is quite impossible to decipher them, without the basic and fundamental knowledge of Spirituality i.e. Supermind and it’s various gradations of manifestation in the context of the Universal Game of God behind the evolution of Matter into Spirit. Fortunately, in this 21st century, we have with us the Vast Supramental Literature of Sri Aurobindo and Mother in the English language – together with their ever-present, guiding Supramental Light and Consciousness to all the seekers of evolutionary Light – which is the only base upon which any modern interpretative or comparative studies on anything related to Evolution, Supermind or Supramental can be logically, scientifically or
humanely made or understood.
Therefore, this website is a humble and maiden attempt to bridge this communication gap and to bring to light the Supramental-spiritual work and yoga techniques of Swami Ramalingam and Saint Thirumoolar in English language, for the evolutionary benefits to the entire mankind. It is the intention of Aumra Trust to make all the main and relevant contents of this site, translated and made available in the entire International and regional languages. Those who are willing to translate the web pages, to be hosted in this site, in their native languages as a spiritual service and sadhana are most welcome to contact us.
The content and message of this site, which are mostly derived from the comparative spiritual studies and published works of T.R.Thulasiram, as well as the corroborated experiences Sri Gangadharan, are entirely based on their Personal Supramental-spiritual experiences, out of their decades of solid spiritual sadhana under the mighty grace and stewardship of their Supramental masters – Sri Aurobindo, Mother and Swami Ramalingam. Even though we conventionally accept the unfathomable reality that the ‘Divine is One but with an unlimited variety of Manifestations’, still any comparative studies of this nature and kind are bound to generate controversies. Therefore it is quite necessary to read and understand this Scientific-spiritual Research work with an open mind, enlightened higher devotion,freedom from institutional attachment and without any prejudice. An alternative, less dangerous, self-assured and rewarding approach could be to use one’s own inner spiritual-physical opening to corroborate the stated findings. Such an evolutionary inner opening can be achieved through the spiritual sadhana or faithful practice of yoga, as found in the Integral Yoga teachings of Sri Aurobindo and Mother, as well as the Suddha Sanmargam (Path of Vast Grace-Light) of Swami Ramalingam and Saint Thirumoolar. The APJA Yoga techniques like Yoga of Food, Yoga of Magnet etc., developed by T.R.Thulasiram, in the light of his experiences in both the Integral yoga and Suddha Sanmargam can be an additional, external aid, in manifesting the Supramental Consciousness at the level of our gross physical body, mind and life, which will lead to an Integral evolutionary spiritual opening. As the entire game of evolution is process-oriented and not miracle-oriented – from the biological evolution of the crawling insect to the mental man to the Spiritual evolution into Supramental race – there can be no instant “Micro-Oven results” but surely there can be an acceleration of this evolutionary process by manifesting the Supramental Consciousness, of which we are trying to communicate through this site.
We read somewhere that when Sri Gangadharan was sitting in his room and just a thought crossing in his mind on: “What is this Supermind or Supramental? I don’t understand anything, have no idea about it!” Then instantly he saw the Supramental Golden Light and had the Supramental experience. But most of us unfortunately are not Gangadharan and do not possess the same kind of spiritual stuff or evolutionary attainment that he already had. In our cases, quite often we need to start from the basic and elementary understanding
of the Science of Evolution, its various gradations of manifestations, starting from Inconscient, Evolving world of earthly life, Cosmic world of ignorance, Overmind and finally the Supermind. After this basic theoretical understanding and grasp, we should ideally commence and try to do a little spiritual practice or sadhana, which should become a part of our day-to-day life. In this Supramental yoga the life itself is Divine and one need not renounce the activities of the world or profession or career as its’ very objective is divinising all the areas and aspects of the worldly life, encompassing all it’s activities. Here the aspirant not only seeks the highest Supramental Divine but he call upon him to manifest in his life, mind and body for his evolutionary spiritual growth. A drop of spiritual practice or experience is always better than having an ocean of theories, beliefs and arguments. One of the endeavors of this website is to focus and disseminate on the “Practical spirituality or Sadhana side of Suddha Sanmargam.”
Many of the English-speaking, highly educated, young and open-minded spiritual aspirants, whom I met, did not have the correct knowledge and information on Swami Ramalingam (Vallalar) and his Suddha Sanmargam (Path of Vast Grace-Light). It was unfortunate that Swami Ramalingam’s life, mission, ideals, achievements and Universal Grace-Rule have not been correctly revealed to the modern world and International audience. Suddha Sanmargam is purely a spiritual movement, whose central theme is the evolutionary transformation of life, mind and body in that order by the practice of Supramental Yoga.
Lack of spiritual understanding and correct translation of Swami Ramalingam’s spiritual literature into English and other International languages had been the main reason why Vallalar’s achievements were not known to the world. T.R.Thulasiram’s works are aiming to bridge this gap and serves as the essential primer on the Supramental Deathless Body for all the New age aspirants of Suddha Sanmargam(path of Vast Grace-Light).
Even the spirituality has to be scientific, logical and appealing to the modern mind of 21st century.T.R.Thulasiram’s entire scientific-spiritual research and works are based on discovering and disseminating the spiritual side of Suddha Sanmargam. Throughout his life,T.R.Thulasiram had labored in synthesizing the Supramental ideals,
works and messages of Suddha Sanmargam of Swami Ramalingam with the Integral yoga of Sri Aurobindo and presented it as the Science of Evolution to all the serious spiritual seekers in this New age of Truth-consciousness. His phenomenal discovery of ‘Yoga of Magnet’ to scientifically measure and grade the diverse spiritual powers has proved that the highest Integral Grace powers of Swami Ramalingam’s Deathless Supramental physical body are silently functioning behind the world bodies like U.N.O., etc., for the collective evolution and spiritual progress of human race. It is quite evident from the testimonies and references that T.R.Thulasiram received from the diverse spiritual aspirants in Tamil Nadu and other parts of the world, that the spiritual world are gradually awakening to this discovery and new knowledge. In fact, we can say that the central message of Sri Aurobindo’s Integral Yoga, particularly the Supramental deathless body transformation, is now reasonably well known among the Tamil-speaking people in Tamil Nadu because of T.R.Thulasiram’s books and articles. I conclude here with a famous saying from the Mother that ” Be faithful to your Guru whoever he is,
he will lead you as far as you can go. But if you are lucky enough to have the Divine as your Guru then there will be no limit to your realization.”
