Cosmic Quintuplications

Cosmic Quintuplications
The Secret of Panchakarana

The Cosmic Quintuplication system, or Panchakarana, describes the unique process by which manifesting consciousness takes on form or, put another way, how the embodying soul takes on matter by inserting itself into forms or vehicles of its choosing. Cosmic Quintuplication, a system of cosmology revealed to India’s ancient seers, offers a cogent explanation of how the soul reaches the earth plane from the inner life-heavens, and especially how Great Souls depart the indivisible Realm of pure, conscious Awareness to bring healing, well-being, and nondual wisdom to the peoples of the many worlds. This straightforward method accounts for five elements, five outer senses, five inner senses, five primordial elements, and the fivefold mind, and connects them all together in an unbroken line of succession that explains the subtle dynamics of evolution and involution in a way that reveals consciousness, intelligence, mind, and matter to be one divine plan.

Manasana 72

The Superlative Art of Mental Posture

In the sacred Sanskrit language, “manas” means mind, while “asana” refers both to a physical position for the body as well as a cushion upon which one sits for meditation.  By combining these two words, Manasana, Babaji Bob Kindler offers the contemporary practitioner of yoga and spirituality an effective way to place the mind into a state of steady balance.
     Using his signature teaching charts, Babaji elucidates upon an array of manasanas, or mental postures, that destroy impediments in the body, increase the flow of energy, refine emotions, and assist the mind in its search for Enlightenment.  By consciously taking up an improved mental posture in the mind, the sincere aspirant can master awareness and attain to Yoga – Union with Ultimate Reality.

Jnana Matra

The Wisdom Particle
Jnana Matra

The ancient Sanskrit word “matra” means a particle or atom. When the word “jnana” (wisdom) is placed in front, it conveys the idea that, just as everything in the physical universe consists of vibrating particles, similarly there are particles of a subtler nature — particles of Intelligence — that form one’s power to concentrate and comprehend.  When one studies the intelligent particle one is approaching the Light that shines off of “The Word,” or AUM.  The third book in Babaji’s planned 5 part series of essential philosophical teachings, entitled The Wisdom Particle (Jnana Matra) is a contemporary coalescence of ancient Vedantic teachings intended to empower the sincere seeker of Truth with the foreknowledge of the soul’s inherent spiritual abilities.

The Ten Divine Articles of Sri Durga:
Insights and Meditations

The Divine Articles held aloft in Mother Durga’s ten hands are not just physical objects, not only weapons for fighting negativity and not merely powers for bringing about benefit to struggling and aspiring beings. Each one is an inseparable and intrinsic portion of Her very nature, being extensions of Her infinite attributes and qualities in outer manifestation only. Babaji Bob Kindler explores the symbolism associated with the sacred objects seen in Sri Durga’s lovely hands and proceeds to utilize these many attributes as spiritual and devotional aids in a set of guided meditations.

The main character, Ekanta, who has been drawn from mention of a holy man in the Srimad Bhagavatam, encounters such “teachers” as the earth, the moth, the ocean, the child, the prostitute, the elephant and the arrowmaker, inspiring vivid recollections from his life spent in the company of his own spiritual masters, illumined parents, and other enlightened beings.

Responding by letter, Lex wrote, “This is an American classic, a true assimilation of the Kali Advaita. It is filled with lightness as well as with Light, and it will move the hearts of many aspirants. The most advanced spiritual thinking (or beyond thinking) is here expressed in the subtlest way. A true sign of realization.” Lex Hixon




Hasta-Amalaka Stotram:
A Hymn of Eternal Enlightenment

Revealing the realization of Brahman to be as clear and tangible as a fruit in the palm of one’s hand.

The appeal of this ancient hymn lies in the nondual nature of its expression, an uncompromising assertion of the absolute identity between God and man, creature and Creator, the Soul present in all called the Atman and the ocean of Pure Consciousness called Brahman.
