The Purification And Advancement Of The Mental Sheath


The Purification And Advancement Of The Mental Sheath

At every step of​ our ordinary social transactions,​ we witness the​ miracles of​ our intellectual capabilities. an​ alert intellectual individual marches ahead in​ his chosen field with great success. Bang opposite to​ this people with weak intellects lag behind in​ various areas despite being blessed with conducive circumstances. in​ order to​ solve dire problems of​ our lives and in​ order to​ attain benefits of​ soul glory,​ a​ radiant mind is​ most required. Via the​ nervous system these elements are spread out widely in​ the​ entire body and the​ brain is​ the​ chief center. in​ spiritual parlance,​ this widespread knowledge is​ the​ Mental Sheath. Ordinarily for intellectual advancement,​ schools and other mediums of​ education are utilized. But the​ spiritual methods used for advancing the​ mental conscious center,​ are based on​ spiritual practices. With its help the​ mental energy is​ purified and evolved.

Spiritual practices for the​ advancement of​ the​ Mental Sheath is​ like the​ bloody Mahabharat war wherein one wards off the​ taints and distortions that have entered our intellectual arena. Along with this is​ conjoined the​ firm resolve (Sankalp) to​ establish Ram’s rule or​ a​ righteous world government.

With reference to​ this it​ is​ apt that we give due thought to​ discipline and self control. in​ ancient times,​ wind,​ bile,​ phlegm,​ indigestion,​ blockage of​ feces,​ change in​ weather,​ attack of​ venomous germs etc. were thought to​ be causes of​ various diseases. But modern research says that the​ mental center fully controls our body and it​ further elaborates that diseases based on​ external causes are nothing but the​ desire of​ the​ life force of​ our body. Thus with common remedies these diseases can be cured. Intense diseases are generally a​ result of​ mental distortions. These diseases cannot be cured merely by medicines and that mental purification is​ most required in​ such cases.

This is​ the​ chief cause not only of​ bodily diseases but also of​ mental illnesses. an​ individual,​ who executes vile actions due to​ a​ vile intellect,​ not only faces bodily diseases but also undergoes mental illnesses. Maybe such a​ person does not turn mad yet because of​ a​ certain amount of​ imbalance,​ he remains semi-agitated. They undergo pain for no reason and for no reason they inflict pain on​ others. Such a​ person’s mental state is​ indeed pitiful. Even if​ one merely sees such a​ person,​ one feels intense turmoil. in​ comparison to​ people with bodily diseases,​ not only is​ the​ number of​ people with mental taints infinitely more,​ but that the​ pain too is​ more severe. the​ method of​ curing such illnesses does not lie in​ hospitals but is​ dependent on​ purification of​ the​ mind. the​ cures can take place in​ other ways too yet on​ the​ basis of​ Spiritual Science it​ can be more successfully overcome via sanctification of​ the​ Mental Sheath and other spiritual practices.

Students of​ Anatomy know fully well that nerves conjoined to​ the​ brain are spread out in​ the​ entire body. it​ is​ through these nerves that such an​ intricate ‘machine’ i.e. the​ brain functions aptly. the​ action power,​ experiences of​ the​ sense organs open up in​ the​ brain. the​ sense organs (apparatus) can only gather information and send it​ to​ the​ brain center. When one undergoes mental agitation,​ the​ entire body loosens itself and one’s power of​ actions too lags behind. One’s face becomes sad when one faces fear,​ worries,​ sorrow,​ despair etc. and the​ entire body tends to​ collapse. if​ one studies the​ body language of​ a​ person who is​ extremely furious,​ it​ is​ clear that all his bodily parts get excited and agitated with great intensity. Bang opposite to​ this a​ man full of​ joy and serenity who always experiences good health and thus lives a​ long life. But a​ person full of​ agitation keeps losing bodily weight and is​ seen to​ die at​ a​ very young age. These facts clearly tell us that more than the​ influence of​ food,​ rest,​ water etc. on​ our body,​ it​ is​ the​ influence of​ our mental state that is​ infinitely more intense.

In the​ body via muscular groups and tubeless glands,​ sentiments are active. Our entire body is​ full of​ muscular networks. Ordinarily muscles are white in​ color and are gross like wires. All our organs work with the​ help of​ muscles. the​ main muscle that reaches every organ is​ as​ gross as​ a​ rope. Its branches and sub-branches become more and more thin. Many sub-branches are as​ thin as​ a​ cotton fiber.

Every muscular network has 2 parts 1) Voluntary 2) Involuntary Via actions of​ moving,​ bending,​ swerving,​ picking up objects etc. we move our hands / legs as​ per our wish. This in​ turn is​ due to​ voluntary muscles. But we cannot function thus with involuntary muscles. They carry out tasks of​ our inner organs like heart beats,​ exhaling / inhaling etc.

The center of​ the​ involuntary muscles lives in​ the​ brain and is​ called hypothalamus. it​ is​ this hypothalamus that controls the​ male and female glands. Also an​ enzyme called dopamine oxidase,​ despite being scattered in​ the​ entire body,​ is​ more concentrated in​ the​ central muscular system. Hypothalamus is​ known to​ activate the​ pituitary gland. From this various hormones are secreted which are reactions of​ our sentiments and causes of​ other new sentiments. When new circumstances are created,​ the​ tubeless glands are pressurized and thus they secrete new hormones. These hormones react variedly in​ the​ body and based on​ this,​ new sentiments manifest. For e.g. suppose the​ pituitary gland secretes a​ hormone due to​ the​ pressure of​ a​ germ of​ a​ disease,​ it​ will result in​ intense turbulence in​ the​ body. Such a​ person becomes uneasy and thus falls down on​ the​ bed. Now in​ this state of​ illness,​ all the​ sentiments hoarded in​ the​ sub-conscious mind start manifesting externally. as​ a​ result one sees varied reaction based symptoms in​ the​ body.

When we say that the​ Mental Sheath is​ present in​ the​ brain,​ we mean that it​ is​ its central action office. But its subtle parts i.e. its branches and sub branches are spread all over the​ body. the​ cells of​ the​ brain are more wise and experienced than cells of​ other organs. Hence they are called the​ leaders of​ all cells of​ the​ body. When these leader cells move in​ a​ particular direction,​ the​ other cells follow suit. in​ order that the​ entire subtle body remains healthy,​ joyful,​ zealous and progressive,​ it​ is​ most required that the​ brain too is​ of​ that stature. if​ the​ leader keeps despairing and experiences anguish,​ how can one aspire for advancement? the​ state of​ a​ leader whether positive or​ negative,​ definitely influences his /her followers.

Dr. Fenkel,​ a​ psychologist of​ Vienna opines that the​ mental state influences one’s bodily health. the​ cause of​ mental balance is​ the​ true achievement of​ one’s life. Hence he advanced the​ method of​ “Logotherapy”. Dr. Fenkel believes that if​ a​ person is​ unaware of​ the​ true goal of​ life and its activities,​ he can never remain healthy. the​ basis of​ a​ blissful life is​ attainment of​ the​ true goal of​ human life. Dr. Fenkel’s Logotherapy encompasses discussion of​ topics liked/disliked by his patient so as​ to​ inspire him to​ walk on​ the​ path of​ the​ true goal of​ human life. as​ soon as​ a​ person understands the​ true goal of​ human life,​ he concentrates his mind on​ the​ energies present within him. Thus he imbibes steadfast faith in​ himself and starts regaining good health. if​ the​ mental state is​ healthy,​ it​ can help the​ physical body to​ regain good health.

A definite and clear cut reaction is​ seen on​ the​ gross/physical body due to​ the​ movements of​ the​ subtle body. the​ cause of​ nervous system disorders is​ the​ suppressed vile thoughts of​ our psyche. Even anatomists opine,​ that merely on​ the​ basis of​ mental imprints,​ many bodily diseases manifest. Dr. Tuk,​ the​ author of​ the​ book “Influence of​ the​ Mind upon the​ Body” writes – “Diseases like turmoil,​ indolence,​ bodily organs becoming handicapped,​ bile,​ leprosy,​ hair loss,​ decrease of​ RBC,​ fear,​ kidney diseases,​ distortion of​ the​ bodily organ of​ a​ fetus in​ its mother’s womb,​ skin diseases,​ boils,​ eczema etc. are the​ result of​ mental agitation and vile thinking.” Mental turmoil,​ vile sentiments,​ undesirable thinking are distortions of​ the​ subtle body which clearly influence our physical body. in​ the​ same way a​ sacred viewpoint,​ healthy thinking,​ idealistic thought flow etc. radiates our subtle body and this great influence is​ seen on​ the​ gross body too.

In the​ proposition of​ the​ extraordinary importance of​ positive thinking based on​ high ideals,​ Dr. Benett has put his own case in​ front of​ us. Up to​ the​ age of​ 50 years Dr. Benett lost good health due to​ despair and undesirable thinking. When he read about the​ good influence of​ positive thinking,​ he started imbibing it​ in​ his own life. He renounced the​ inertness of​ his mind along with mental distortions so as​ to​ fill his heart with faith based on​ sacred aspirations. Thus his life overflowed with bliss and serenity. Dr. Benett who had lived a​ life of​ bliss for 20 continuous years,​ printed photographs of​ himself when he was 50 years and another one when he was 70 years,​ in​ his book. the​ photograph when he was 50 years was indeed crestfallen and withered but the​ photograph when he was 70 years old was so full of​ bliss. Where had the​ withered face disappeared? This is​ because at​ the​ age of​ 70 years,​ he looked youthful and oozed with zest for life.

Up till now all research studies of​ this sort indicate that if​ one’s mind / intellect are agitated,​ that person too experiences pain. Hatred,​ jealousy,​ greed etc. definitely affect a​ person in​ a​ big way. When the​ intellect experiences bliss,​ all bodily cells too rejoice. All these cells experience oneness between themselves. if​ one cell experiences pain /joy,​ other cells too get influenced. They share their joys and sorrows. Their mutual relationship of​ oneness is​ amazing. There are rare examples of​ true friendship,​ intense oneness and sympathy for one another. Imagine that one particular individual is​ extremely hungry. in​ front of​ him is​ a​ plate of​ delicious food items. at​ that moment he gets a​ phone call that a​ beloved one has died. Immediately his mind is​ crowded with thoughts of​ his beloved kin. the​ mind experiences oneness with the​ kin. the​ cells of​ the​ brain get agitated. This agitation is​ immediately passed on​ to​ the​ entire body. the​ tongue starts drying up. Those cells which were previously screaming for food due to​ hunger were now silenced. the​ heart and other organs too slump. the​ heart sinks,​ the​ eyes are covered with darkness and the​ body slumps. Thus the​ entire body is​ influenced by this mental turmoil. it​ is​ very clear that the​ state of​ the​ brain cells influence the​ state of​ the​ bodily cells.

The famous scientist cum author Dr. Bennett in​ his book “Old Age – Cause and Prevention” writes about a​ very entertaining and educative incident. a​ 16-year old French girl decided to​ marry a​ young man of​ American origin. Because the​ young man was poor,​ it​ was decided that he would first earn wealth in​ America and then return to​ France to​ get married. Within three years the​ young man earned a​ lot of​ wealth but as​ luck would have it,​ he was involved in​ a​ court case and thus could not return to​ France for 16 years. After 16 years when he returned to​ France,​ he was amazed to​ see that the​ health and beauty of​ his fiancée remained unchanged and hence even now at​ an​ advanced age,​ she radiated beauty of​ a​ 16 year old girl.

While analyzing the​ above incident Dr. Bennett writes – Mother Nature controls the​ human body in​ such a​ manner that every cell of​ the​ body,​ which lives for 90 days is​ disposed off from the​ body via bodily dirt,​ just as​ the​ dirt in​ the​ sea is​ taken to​ the​ shores by flow and ebb of​ tides. Old age means the​ activity of​ cell transformation which gets depleted as​ one starts aging. But in​ the​ above incident,​ Mother Nature’s influence of​ aging was warded off. Why was it​ so?

Dr. Bennett induced the​ woman to​ give an​ answer and she said – Every day I stood in​ front of​ a​ full length mirror and stared at​ myself. I would keep thinking that I am exactly as​ I was yesterday. My body could not be influenced by the​ day’s changes. This steadfastness of​ my will power,​ kept me joyous and zestful everyday. This is​ the​ very reason why I am looking like a​ 16 year old girl despite being actually 34 years old.” He clearly understood the​ value of​ purification of​ the​ subtle body,​ elevation of​ our thinking and one’s power of​ resolve (Sankalp-Shakti) after reading the​ book written by a​ great spiritualist,​ Dr. Marden called “An Iron Ball”. Dr. Marden writes “If only man reforms his thinking and raises the​ level of​ his character,​ he can also transform his physical body.” These precepts became a​ medicinal herb for him which gave a​ new life to​ millions of​ humans. if​ one imbibes love for all,​ friendship,​ compassion and generous thinking,​ anyone can benefit immensely.

Based on​ one’s emotions the​ network of​ veins in​ our brain either spread out widely or​ shrink in​ size and thus manifest sensitive reactions.

It is​ unhealthy thoughts that give rise to​ bodily diseases. Right from an​ ordinary headache to​ an​ intense one called migraine,​ it​ is​ emotional tension that is​ its root cause. as​ a​ result the​ veins contract and thus the​ headaches start all over again. Today it​ has been observed that the​ cause of​ 85% of​ headaches is​ sentimental tension.

Because of​ sentimental tension and that of​ the​ network of​ veins people after partaking their meals,​ experience that their heart is​ heavy and the​ food refuses to​ move downwards. Due to​ excessive tension,​ one feels nauseous and the​ heart gets agitated.

Muscular diseases that are a​ result of​ emotional tension,​ show symptoms of​ belching,​ stomach heaviness,​ wind based distortions along with those of​ the​ skin,​ eczema,​ itching etc.

Today regarding hip pain it​ is​ said that majority of​ them are due to​ emotional stress.

Despite knowing that majority of​ today’s diseases are the​ result of​ emotional stress,​ a​ major question arises as​ to​ how does one tackle emotional stress? the​ answer is​ simple – imbibing a​ wise viewpoint in​ ones’ daily routine. Without practice this wise viewpoint can never be fully imbibed. it​ is​ only via practice that one looks upon life as​ a​ joyous game and that it​ is​ not like a​ heavy burden carried by an​ aging mule. the​ true royal path to​ be followed encompasses understanding of​ our limitations,​ making apt use of​ our bodily/mental energy,​ warding off our selfish ego,​ shouldering responsibilities and always advancing one’s creative thoughts in​ one’s daily living.

Ordinarily we wrongly look upon harshness,​ anger,​ fights etc. as​ a​ synonym of​ energy whereas a​ psychologist labels all this as​ “childish tantrums”. These are in​ fact symbols of​ weakness. a​ truly powerful person is​ humble and steadfast in​ ideals. Anger and an​ argumentative attitude is​ the​ creation of​ weakness. Practice of​ simplicity/ self-control is​ the​ fount of​ energy. But remember that futile anger vented against one’s own weakness,​ too is​ not beneficial. Because vile imprints in​ one’s psyche have gathered slowly over a​ long period of​ time,​ it​ becomes apparent that to​ uproot them,​ one should patiently work hard in​ a​ slow but sure manner. the​ best method is​ intense,​ ceaseless practice to​ uproot vile imprints of​ the​ mind. One should always remember that the​ basis of​ diseases is​ vileness of​ the​ mind and unethical activity. Thus it​ is​ easy to​ overcome them by imbibing purity of​ mind,​ love,​ compassion and working for the​ welfare of​ the​ entire world.

It is​ also possible to​ wash / clean the​ intellect via scientific methods. Yet spiritual methods are more powerful and capable. Its influence is​ infinitely more supreme.

According to​ the​ technique of​ Electrical Stimulation of​ Brain (E.S.B.),​ many Asian Universities have partly succeeded in​ brain washing. This has so far been experimented on​ lower species like rats,​ monkeys,​ rabbits,​ dogs,​ cats etc. They completely forget to​ show liking for food,​ enmity,​ friendship,​ fear,​ attacking others etc. and instead behave in​ a​ very strange manner. a​ cat was made to​ confront a​ rat,​ yet instead of​ attacking the​ rat,​ the​ cat got scared and started hiding out of​ fear. Further experimentation showed them attacking one another in​ a​ bloody manner,​ embracing one another in​ the​ very next moment etc. due to​ electrical influence. This electricity was aimed at​ the​ brain cells. This holds true for human beings too. Man’s brain is​ more sacred. it​ has a​ greater power of​ reacting and hence in​ order to​ change it,​ more effort shall have to​ be made. it​ will take time to​ attain total success but the​ clear principles unearthed via research opines that even man can be induced to​ think in​ a​ certain manner,​ made to​ believe in​ certain ideals and instigated to​ imbibe a​ specific mode of​ action.

The spiritual practices pertaining to​ the​ Mental Sheath not only cleans the​ brain but also makes it​ more advanced,​ cultured and sacred.

The Mental Sheath encompasses the​ entire bodily and psychic arena. it​ influences both these areas. Because it​ is​ in​ a​ disarranged and distorted state in​ the​ psyche,​ its reaction is​ in​ the​ form of​ a​ destructive influence on​ the​ bodily and psychic area. When our individuality is​ turbulent,​ our viewpoint and actions too get tainted. as​ a​ result our activities turn vile. it​ is​ thus clear that under these circumstances,​ only agitations and strife will be witnessed. Many obstructions will crop up. Chaos and danger will attack us. Our entire life will be converted to​ hell. None can save us from this hell because even if​ out of​ ignorance,​ we point fingers at​ others for our downfall,​ the​ fact remains that it​ is​ we ourselves who are responsible for it. the​ precept of​ the​ mental state manifesting as​ external circumstances is​ so clear that none can refute it. Without transforming our inner character,​ we cannot come out of​ this hell-like situation. Without overcoming obstacles in​ our daily lives,​ we cannot elevate ourselves. We cannot overcome external circumstances without changing our minds.

The Mental Sheath blesses us with various types of​ skills and successes. Sometimes certain special people have extraordinary mental capabilities. the​ memory of​ certain people is​ so advanced that others can only be wonderstruck. Some people manifest skills at​ a​ very young age and thus gain immense name and fame. the​ answer to​ this extraordinary talent is​ that the​ Mental Sheath of​ such individuals is​ highly activated. From their previous births they have collected so much talent that it​ is​ manifesting at​ a​ very young age in​ this birth. as​ per the​ Theory of​ Karma (Action) man comes into this world with psychic imprints (Sanskars) of​ innumerable past births. Hence it​ could be that the​ Mental Sheath of​ such talented people is​ more evolved.

Behind all these amazing events,​ the​ secret is​ that the​ scattered mind gets focused. Coincidences of​ these types are based on​ certain cosmic laws. Attainments of​ past births play a​ major role in​ such causes. Man enters this world along with psychic imprints (Sanskars) of​ innumerable births. Amongst them one could be intellectual evolution. This evolution is​ not just the​ result of​ school education or​ teachings of​ close relatives. in​ fact this is​ just an​ increase in​ informative knowledge. if​ the​ flow of​ electrical energy of​ a​ powerful brain turns in​ the​ direction of​ a​ weak brain,​ an​ intense change takes place in​ its sharpness and this can be seen as​ a​ rise in​ the​ measure of​ special proteins of​ the​ brain. For intellectual nourishment,​ proximity of​ thinkers with an​ advanced consciousness is​ very useful. Their powerful vital force can fulfill the​ lack of​ a​ weak brain. in​ laboratories normal electricity is​ directed towards special cells of​ the​ brain and for a​ certain time span,​ the​ nature of​ these creatures can be transformed. the​ vital force of​ radiant people can influence the​ mental state of​ weak-minded people in​ a​ permanent manner.

Yale resident Dr. George Delgodo,​ a​ brain specialist has proved via his researches that the​ brain can either be activated or​ made more latent by directing external electricity towards it. Thus such a​ person can be induced to​ carry out various tasks and commands.

The audience was wonderstruck when Dr. George publicly exhibited his experiments. His hands had an​ electrical apparatus and in​ certain parts and certain number of​ the​ brain region of​ various creatures,​ electrodes were placed. Thus a​ radio type communication was set up between the​ machine and a​ living creature. on​ the​ basis of​ induced instructions,​ a​ creature acts in​ such a​ manner which is​ bang opposite to​ his otherwise normal nature. Peace loving beings became ferocious and ferocious creatures became astonishingly calm. Under the​ influence of​ this external electric treatment,​ buffalos,​ monkeys,​ rats,​ cats etc. behaved in​ a​ manner which was totally unexpected by the​ layman.

These experiments have been carried out on​ human beings too and by controlling their powers of​ will,​ wisdom and action,​ they were forced to​ think and act in​ a​ desired manner.

The rare quaality of​ memory power is​ so advanced in​ certain individuals,​ that one can only be amazed. Raivi Elija of​ Lithunia was well-known for memorizing 2 thousand books. He was tested in​ various ways and always came out with flying colors. the​ French political leader Lian Gaiswata was very fond of​ Victor Hugo’s writings. He had memorized many pages of​ these books and time and again he quoted them form his sharp memory. Not one word was out of​ place. in​ fact he knew which line was written on​ which page number.

Richard Porsan,​ a​ Greek scholar,​ memorized many books which he had read. What he read today could be quoted by him even after one month passed by and he would recite it​ as​ though he had just read it​ a​ few minutes back. Harry Nelson Pilsbury an​ American citizen called the​ Magician of​ Chess could memorize the​ moves of​ 20 chess players and could simultaneously direct them. All this was carried out with zeal and zest. Many players were taught by him and thus the​ game moved on​ speedily. German’s famous librarian Maithurin Besiray could impeccably repeat what others said once only. He had the​ amazing capacity to​ repeat flawlessly,​ conversations with others in​ languages that were totally alien to​ him. Once 12 people,​ speaking 12 different languages were conversing. And Maithurin flawlessly repeated their conversation one by one. an​ 8-year old son of​ Burmans called Jera Colburn would give answers of​ extremely difficult mathematical problems without calculating them with pen and paper. He amazed all great Mathematicians of​ London with his superb mathematical skills. Even John Martin Des of​ Hamburg was well-known for answering mathematical problems orally. in​ those days his mathematical brain was so advanced that even today’s advanced mathematical computers fail to​ match his skills.

The great biologist Holger Heider of​ Gottenburg University,​ after analyzing the​ strange movements of​ the​ brain based on​ Molecular Biological studies,​ concluded that the​ educative and thinking tasks that make the​ intellect alert,​ augments the​ proportion of​ certain chemicals in​ the​ brain cells. Thus they become more sensitive and make widespread,​ the​ area of​ intelligence.

This proves that the​ act of​ evolving the​ area of​ the​ brain not only purifies the​ brain area but that other areas too can be influenced. Intelligence and radiance are 2 sides of​ mental alertness. This mental alertness can be seen right from birth itself,​ as​ a​ result of​ spiritual capacities gathered form innumerable previous lives. Further it​ can be augmented by undergoing spiritual practices. By imbibing the​ spiritual practice of​ purification of​ the​ Mental Sheath,​ one can enter this area.

There was a​ translator in​ U.S.S.R. who could translate one source language into 4 target languages at​ one and the​ same time and this he would do by dictating the​ translated matters to​ 4 stenographers for 4 different languages.

When a​ philosopher called Jeremy Benthem was 4 years old,​ he could speak correct Latin and Greek. Germany’s Mathematician called Javarious amazed everyone by mentally adding numbers that had 200 digits. a​ garage mechanic of​ U.S.A. could memorize innumerable car number plates and on​ seeing any car,​ he could describe how it​ had been repaired previously.

When John Francis of​ Columbia University was appointed as​ a​ Professor of​ Natural History,​ his age was only 16 years.

Once Oxford University made extra arrangements for mathematical training of​ a​ 4 year old girl called Babel Thompson. This girl has mastered Numerology,​ Trigonometry and primary Material Sciences at​ a​ very young age. How can one educate a​ girl who has not undergone the​ curriculum of​ primary education? to​ solve this problem,​ a​ special panel of​ top educationists has been set up.

Madras Music Academy announced a​ special scholarship for a​ 2½ year old boy called Ravi Kiran for his outstanding singing skills. Not only did Ravi Kiran master the​ art of​ playing various musical instruments but that he would immediately point out errors on​ the​ part of​ other musicians.

A Japanese citizen called Hanava Hokaishee was born in​ the​ year 1722 and he died at​ the​ age of​ 101 years in​ the​ year 1823. at​ the​ age of​ 7 years he became blind. Yet despite being blind,​ he alertly heard what others said and thus imbibed knowledge. He would very skillfully hear others and log it​ into his brain. as​ a​ result his brain was so radiant that people were wonderstruck. Later in​ Japan a​ book of​ 2820 chapters was published on​ the​ basis of​ Hanava’s knowledge. Up till today this is​ the​ biggest book in​ the​ world.

An 8-year old child of​ Vermont called Jera Colburn,​ without studying mathematics systematically and without any calculations using pen and paper,​ answered very difficult mathematical questions and thus he amazed other great mathematicians. When a​ difficult mathematical problem was given to​ other great Mathematicians,​ they would take some time to​ solve them but Colburn would answer the​ same problem in​ a​ flash of​ a​ moment. Thus people were wonderstruck because Colburn had never studied various theorems,​ riders,​ laws etc. of​ Mathematics.

Once a​ Mathematician called Jodia Wallston was immersed in​ a​ mathematical problem which was very difficult. One day he met John Martin Des who possessed a​ powerful intellect. Des solved that problem in​ a​ few seconds. This was because Des was famous everywhere for solving difficult mathematical problems in​ a​ flash.

Sir John Fielding was a​ Judge in​ England. Although he was blind,​ his ears were so alert that he could recognize the​ voice of​ 3000 criminals whose case he had heard. He could easily identify them and name these criminals. After many years when the​ case was over,​ they would come to​ meet Sir John who would with the​ help of​ his sharp hearing capacity,​ identify those criminals. This radiant memory of​ Sir John was revered by all for a​ great time span.

A famous poet called Francisco Mairiya Garibaldi was born in​ the​ 14th century. He was an​ Italian. He was blessed with the​ art of​ writing poems with both his hands simultaneously. One poem he wrote in​ Latin and the​ other in​ ancient Greek.

The chief pastor of​ Canterbury,​ Thomas Fracker created a​ rare record by memorizing the​ Bible in​ only 3 months. He was born in​ the​ year 1724 and died in​ 1812. the​ well-known poet of​ Scotland,​ Duncan Mac Intayar was famous not only in​ his country but in​ entire Europe. But he neither knew how to​ read or​ write. He had evolved his skills only by listening and understanding.

A Greek called Porson had memorized all poems written by Milton and he could recite it​ not only straight but in​ a​ reverse manner too.

Once Lokroj,​ amazed his audience due to​ his powerful memory. He first heard 12 poetries of​ 12 different languages which he had never studied before and the​ very next moment,​ he repeated these poems with precision.

The director of​ the​ National Library of​ Munich,​ Joseph Bernard Duncan had a​ powerful memory. He not only studied 6 different languages but mastered them too. He would ask 6 stenographers of​ 6 different languages to​ take dictation in​ those 6 languages. it​ is​ thus very rare to​ find so much knowledge in​ the​ intellect alongwith a​ powerful memory.

An Indian lady called Shakuntala Devi who was called Wizard of​ Mathematics,​ once gave a​ show on​ London T.V. at​ that time one person asked her to​ solve a​ difficult mathematical problem. in​ a​ flash she answered,​ that the​ problem asked itself was incorrect. This question had been constructed by great Mathematicians of​ Britain. Hence everyone wondered how could this question be wrong? But when the​ B.B.C. crew members got this question analyzed,​ they found that truly this mathematical problem / question was incorrect. They also accepted that,​ “the power and capacity of​ the​ brain is​ much more than how much we actually understand.”

University of​ New South Wales in​ Sydney (Australia) had a​ computer that weighed 20,​000 pounds. This computer functioned with the​ help of​ electricity and was operated by the​ great Mathematicians,​ R. G. Smart and Barry Thornton. When a​ question of​ Mathematics was fed into the​ computer,​ it​ took some time in​ answering it​ but Shakuntala Devi answered it​ in​ a​ flash before the​ computer gave its answer. Everyone was amazed that Shakuntala Devi’s answer was cent percent correct.

With reference to​ the​ amazing powers of​ the​ mind,​ scientists have carried out various research studies and the​ Psychological Research Committee has published all the​ data in​ a​ book called “The Human Personality and Its Survival of​ Bodily Death”. in​ this book examples of​ small children have been published,​ who were so skilful in​ fields like mathematics,​ music,​ art etc. that even their teachers could not match them in​ their talent. Adi Shankaracharya too had amazed his preceptor with his radiant intellect. When a​ 5 year old boy possesses a​ very radiant intellect without undergoing primary education,​ means that he has gathered this brilliance from his past births. the​ attainments of​ past lives are proof of​ the​ independent existence of​ the​ soul.

Two hundred years back,​ a​ boy called Harris Hanenken was born in​ Germany. When he was 3 years old,​ he memorized thousands of​ Latin sayings. He could easily add,​ subtract,​ multiply,​ divide numbers. at​ this tender age he decided to​ study French and Geography. the​ creator of​ “Cybernatics”,​ Weiner was 5 years old. He started taking interest in​ Science just like 18-year old students. Gateux wrote poems at​ the​ tender age of​ 6 years. Byron,​ Scott and Darwin who gained fame for the​ Theory of​ Evolution were very brilliant even as​ small children. the​ first scientific study of​ Pascal was published at​ the​ age of​ 15 years and in​ it,​ he had proved more than 100 scientific problems.

America’s material scientist,​ Dr. Stevenson has gathered 600 examples in​ which children up to​ the​ age of​ 14 years have given proof of​ the​ events of​ their past births. Out of​ these 170 were Indian children.

a​ 3 year old talented boy of​ Germany called Hamen Ken was a​ leader in​ research of​ the​ brain. Not only did he study advanced scientific texts at​ that age,​ but he could also analyze them in​ detail.

The principle of​ attainments via spiritual practices works in​ all areas of​ life. Everyone knows that hard work reaps rich dividends. People take up various tasks in​ this world only because they are convinced that any action will definitely give fruits. This holds true for spiritual practices too. if​ it​ is​ based on​ spiritual precepts and carried out systematically,​ one will definitely reap rich fruits.

In order to​ awaken/purify the​ Mental Sheath,​ concentration and meditation are given a​ lot of​ importance. as​ a​ result of​ this,​ one’s Sankalpa(power of​ resolve) becomes steadfast and that we focus intensely on​ our goal. Benefits like advancing of​ the​ intellect and activation of​ brilliance in​ one’s character too are attained.
