Your interest in meditation suggests
that you may be seeking support on your spiritual path. The Sahaj Marg or
Natural Path system of spiritual training has helped thousands of spiritual
seekers around the world. If practiced regularly as a complete method, Sahaj
Marg or Natural Path is sure to help you in your spiritual endeavors.
According to an ancient Indian text "all human endeavor must conform
to five principles if it is to succeed. These are:
- Acquire knowledge and understanding of the goal to be achieved.
- Select the right way or approach to achieve that goal.
- Correctly assess one's current state.
- Attract to oneself all favorable forces which will help in the achievement
of the goal.
- Repel or do away with all adverse factors standing
in the way of the goal". 1
However self-evident these principles may be, we all can benefit from
remembering them in order to stay on course with our goal.
We have prepared this brief research module to provide you an opportunity
to explore the first three of these principles with the use of a series
of queries, selected readings, and a brief sketch of the Sahaj Marg
system. By completing it you can expect to have gained two things:
- A personal record of your spiritual search and an assessment of
your current state.
- A first exposure of the Sahaj Marg system as an effective method
in the field of spirituality.
The questions in each section are designed to support a conscious reflection
upon the history of your spiritual search, the nature of the change you
seek, the level of commitment you have to your goal, and the appropriateness
of selecting Sahaj Marg as a system for self-integration, self-actualisation,
and self-transformation to the fullest possible extent of realizing the
true nature of Self.
Please note that it is not necessary for you to share the results of
this exercise with us in order for us to assist you in further research
of the Sahaj Marg system of spiritual training. However, we do suggest
that you keep your written responses and notes, which you can use for
future reference or for possible participation in an introductory Sahaj
We thank you for your interest and wish you well in your endeavors.
