Introduction to Solar Science
The deep import of the spiritual leg of Indian Culture is definitely solar meditation. The demon Raavana was defeated by Lord Raama after imbibing the mystery of Aaditya or solar deity. Yudhishthira and his brothers first got initiated into solar meditation via Dhaumya Muni. The energy that manifested made them invincible.

The sun is said to be the life force of creation. It is because of the sun that life sustains on planet earth. Assuming that for one day the solar deity refuses to rise at dawn life on earth would become chaotic and unruly. Solar rays imbue creatures with zest and zeal and hence the sun is given utmost importance. And despite all this know for sure that the sun is not merely a ball of blazing inferno. It is not as though it is merely emitting flames of gases like hydrogen/helium which in turn manifest immense energy. This in fact is the material or gross description of the sun. In its subtle aspect the sun is the director of our thought process, chief of all planets and inducer of great sentiments in our psyche. It is indeed the very soul of all living beings. A deeper outlook tells us that spiritually it is the light of God as cosmic consciousness and that of super mind. The word Soorya or sun means that which inspires us with sacred sentiments.
The root import of the spiritual leg of Indian Culture is definitely solar meditation. The demon Raavana was defeated by Lord Raama only after imbibing the mystery of the heart of Aaditya or solar deity. Yudhishthira and his brothers first got initiated into solar meditation from Dhaumya Muni. The energy that manifested as a result made them invincible. Our Rishi literature oozes with eulogies of solar deity. In the Rig Veda (5/81/1) it is said that the widespread eulogy of solar deity/Savita is indeed great.
Sun is Savita deity in the form of divine existence of the sun as creator-illuminator. Savita is that which is a creator, eulogized as absolute truth, nurturer of all humanity and who coaxes man to give up his limited ego ‘I’ and merge into cosmic divine existence. We dedicate this e-book to Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya who has merged into cosmic consciousness i.e. the substratum of Savita-sun, authority that destroys sins and deity of Super Mantra Gayatri.
…………………………BRAHMAVARCHAS RESEARCH INSTITUTE
A realized saint of Kanpur (India) who is no longer in our midst said in the year 1986 AD: While worshipping the sun we are actually meditating on the divine power of our revered Gurudeva Shriram Sharmaji. This saint was an accomplished Taantrika. Whosoever was blessed by him attained desired fruits. Sometimes this saint came to Shantikunj (Haridwar, Uttaranchal, India, website: www.awgp.org) for 5 days and then would return to Kanpur (India). Physically he had never visited any pilgrim spot and yet when he described them it seemed as though he actually had done so. He would say: When I go to sleep I visit all pilgrim spots with my subtle astral body. This was absolutely true. Initially he was an ordinary official in the postal department but later had obtained so many divine powers through austerities that whomsoever he blessed attained their desires. Therefore we were surprised when this saint said he desired to meet Gurudeva. He wanted to get initiated by Gurudeva else he felt he would miss out on attaining his spiritual goal.
We asked this saint: Why do you want to get initiated? You have chanted so many Gayatri Mantras and have as a result obtained so many divine powers. Hence why this desire for initiation? The saint answered: Do you think I have come to Shantikunj to roam around aimlessly? Oh! At Shantikunj one finds so much divinity all around. Mahaakaal (God of Time) himself dwells here. I do not know whether you have fully understood the greatness of your Gurudeva but whatever I know about him tells me that after many eons Lord Maheshwara and Mother Parvati have come down on earth to bring about a powerful transformation of this world. Hence if I get initiated by him I shall definitely attain salvation or Moksha. The time has arrived for me to shed my mortal coil and know for sure that Gurudeva too will end his sojourn on earth in about 4 years time. He will merge his subtle body so the time now is ripe for me to get initiated by him.
Despite the saint’s observations my curiosity had not been fully satisfied. I queried thus: You too are an accomplished sage then why would you want initiation? He replied: You yet have not understood its importance. The Divine Powers/Sidhis which I possess are mere peripherals and are bound by time and space. They no doubt influence everyone and yet despite this what divine prowess Gurudeva possesses can easily liberate a devotee from the shackles of time and space eternally. Assuming that I am a small bulb of light revered Gurudeva is its very powerhouse and much greater than the gigantic sun too. To date he has experimented albeit successful on a large scale on human consciousness. He has induced a ‘Shirshaasan’ in the sun (head on the ground and feet dangling in air). His power has merged into divine sun god. Savitri pervades the entire cosmos and Gurudeva via meditation and other such subtle spiritual endeavors has merged into it. Hence forth you will see this power influencing the entire world. I yearn to fulfill my ‘selfish’ desire of initiation. It is very difficult to come in contact with such a great preceptor. You are fortunate to contact that great preceptor whom devotees have tried to meet for eons together. You all have done so for carrying out his stupendous mission in this world. Now it is for you to realize his true divine greatness. Only then you will understand that Divine Powers/ Sidhis possessed by my self are naught in its comparison. Please help me get his grace via initiation that will ensure that no longer will I undergo the vicious painful cycles of birth and death.
Later as time went by, the prophecy of the great saint made above proved to be absolutely true. He did get initiated by revered Gurudeva, he then gave up his mortal frame and Gurudeva too shed his mortal frame as predicted. All this we witnessed actually happening in front of our eyes.
The above episode is written for pious minded readers so that they too can realize our preceptor’s true greatness after reading what the great sage of Kanpur had to say about Gurudeva. The sage deftly gauged the spiritual aura and divine greatness of revered Gurudeva. In fact our Gurudeva him self would say: You all must meditate on a form. Hence if you choose to meditate on the sun meditate on my form. If you meditate on me it is synonymous with meditating on the sun. Hence when we meditated thus we noted that the preceptor oriented power was centered on the sun. We could easily meditate on solar Gayatri and thus all mental complexes and riddles were solved. So it was crystal clear that Gurudeva’s divine power had attained oneness with solar power.
Our revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya had done intense Gayatri worship which is known to purify man’s psyche in totality. He further worshipped Savitri for sanctification of external nature. Today post death via his subtle body he is continuing with this sacred task. It is only an incarnation of God who merges with solar deity can carry out such a stupendous mission of transformation of an era. Anyone with lesser divine potential can never succeed in such a gigantic mission. Super Mantra Gayatri and the sun are the very life force of Indian Culture. In past times as long as divine men of India worshipped the solar deity, so long India led in all aspects of knowledge based sciences. It oozed with supreme joy and all round progress. It is a fact that when falsehood and demonic forces start ruling the roost divine people with the aid of solar power have transformed human nature into godliness. The sun helps manifest vigor, activities, high thinking and can liberate our psyche from vices and taints. In this manner pure sentiments of sacredness proliferate. It is hence that preceptor power chooses an icon of worship for his/her disciple.
In the Kapil Tantra it is said:
It is most desirable that Yoga specialist preceptors examine the inner nature and inclination of their disciples so as to decide which image of worship is best suited for them. Which are these icons/images? They can be Vishnu- chief of sky, Maheshwari- Goddess of fire, sun, Shiva, Ganesh etc. Any one of these can become an image.
The above 5 powers are found in Gayatri and the sun. This was told to us by Gurudeva and according to him it makes our worship all powerful. Revered Gurudeva says: It is a foregone conclusion that this era is going to be transformed. Its pivotal role will be played by India. The spirituality of the entire world is concentrated over here and the golden sunrise of a new era shall dawn here. To make this come true and in order to destroy the darkness of 2000 years so as to manifest Sat Yuga or Golden Age majority of great men have taken birth in India. If world history is pondered over deeply, never has so much been accomplished speedily as has been done in the last 10 decades. Revered Gurudeva writes: In the near future the mission to be fulfilled will revolve around human nature, process of thinking and a stupendous transformation of the world’s subtle atmosphere. The question asked is that how will all this take place? Its deep import has been explained by our preceptor center that merged into the solar deity and who had prophesized the onset of a Golden Era in the 21st century.
In order to solve the problem of atheistic tendencies so as to enhance human sacredness the divine power most required is that of Goddess Savita. In the Taiteriya Samhitaa the Rishi says:
“O, all knowing sun god! Please bless me and sanctify my psyche”. It is quite possible that because of this Rishis of yore have worshipped the conscious center of the Purusha (Almighty God) seated in the sun (Yajur Veda 40/17). In the Shukla Yajur Veda (31/18) great Rishis say:
I know the great Purusha seated in the sun in his Aaditya form and who is beyond darkness. He is the bestower of light and is Almighty God himself.
This eulogy is not beyond reason because Rishis worshipped the sun as protector of our vital force. It is both a creator and propagator and hence is said in the Atharva Veda (1/31/4): We pray that for ages to come we shall visualize the cosmic divine light illuminator i.e. Sun-God.
Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya continuously published literature on the worship of Gayatri-Sun-Kundalini from March 1977 to May 1977. In the April 1977 issue he writes that there is a dire need to create a proper environment for high leveled spiritual practices especially after keeping in mind contemporary circumstances. He exhorts us to create a forest like atmosphere in Gayatri Tirtha Shantikunj and Brahmavarchas so as to imbue it with Divine Energy. In one such article titled “The Mahaapraana of Savita-Savitri” he writes that the greatest need today is of an advanced intellect and that he has shown the importance of meditation on the divine effulgence of Goddess Savita. He says savita should be our icon so that its divine power gets an opportunity to sanctify the subtle world. In a special issue of Akhand Jyoti Magazine (January 1987) he says, with reference to Kundalini Energy, that in the coming days it will be awakened through solar/Savita worship. In this manner the destiny of planet Earth will shine effulgently.
Say who is that individual who can transform the destiny of entire planet Earth? The answer is one who is of the stature of Vishwaamitra (who tried to create a parallel cosmos) and has the potency/prowess of the Rishi clan. From time to time via published literature our revered preceptor has told us that by looking upon the radiant Savita (sun) as a manifestation of formless God we must imbibe deeply the divine power of Sun-God. The one can overcome all fear and stress related in this entire era. He further elaborated that solar movements/activities will be responsible for the advent of a New Era. “These days the earth has entered the womb of the sun so as to transform earth’s destiny to greatness”. With these words he proclaimed that this newly transformed planet Earth will be hallowed and in turn it will transform the entire cosmos. Solar flare ups and solar spot oriented radiations will prove dire for demonic forces and this in turn will augment Divine Powers. During conversations with revered Sir he often said that: I have given you symbolic yellow colored garments to wear so that you can absorb the power of Sun, Brihaspati, Gayatri and Guru. When Sun and Brihaspati unite the color that ensues is yellow. He felt that in today’s time instead of ochre robes worn by Sanyaasins who run way to the forest out of dispassion yellow garments are most required to be worn by devotees. Such people will be incessantly blessed by the solar deity. The fact remains that ere preceptor element Brihaspati is not imbibed it follows suit that Gayatri-Savitri element too will not be imbibed.
Our revered preceptor understood clearly that Knowledge of Tantra would be dangerous for his disciples and hence he designed a compact religious program (Anushthaan) of Super Mantra Gayatri. He imbued this Gayatri with his wholesome Tantra Power and penance. In addition worship of Savitri and Brihaspati too was included which would hence forth cause no harm to any spiritual aspirant/devotee. Time and again Gurudeva advised his disciples never to hurriedly switch over to Tantra Science. Instead they were sagely advised to regularly chant the Gayatri Mantra, purify subtle nerves/Naadis, do Praanaayaam, meditate on the sun etc. If all this was done with utmost sincerity Gurudeva promised to fulfill the rest. In actuality it is the preceptor who energizes the Mantra. Through psychic imprints or Sanskaaras words are interwoven into various Mantras. Our revered Gurudeva made widely available the otherwise secret Gayatri Mantra to one and all without any discrimination. He made subtle changes in it and the Sootra on which he made us meditate on the solar deity along with Mantra Japa is simply outstanding.
That Divine Authority which had merged into the solar deity had proclaimed that by sending the lower vital force to the upper vital force entire world community will get transformed positively. This Divine Authority had made a Sankapla or powerful mental resolve in the spring season of the year 1980 wherein inducing an onset of a New Era after working on the thought process of world humanity with the help of his subtle body. On page 17 of his book “What should we do in the 21st century” he says that Shantikunj has a great community of individuals akin to an eagle hiding eggs under its wings. They will be mediums of heralding a radiant world future in the 21st century. In order to spiritually nurture them a powerful Divine Energy has manifested at Shantikunj. It is Mahaakaal or Lord of Time who has declared that a New Era in the 21st century is bound to manifest radiantly. With faith by bowing down to our preceptor who is solar deity incarnate we pray that we become apt instruments/mediums in fulfilling this wondrous divine resolve of his.
