His Mother sat down next to him and smiled, "I know Darwin, Vasu. I also know that what you think he discovered is old news in India."
" Yeah sure Mom!" Vasu said with sarcasm.
"Well if you are too smart then listen to this, " his Mother countered." Have you heard of Dashavatar? The ten avatars of Vishnu?" Vasu nodded.
"Then let me tell you what you and Mr. Darwin don't know. The first avatar was the Matsya avatar, it means the fish. That is because life began in the water. Is that not right?" Vasu began to listen with a little more attention.
"Then came the Kurma Avatar, which means the tortoise, because life moved from the water to the land. The amphibian. So the Tortoise denoted the evolution from sea to land.
Third was the Varaha, the wild boar, which meant the wild animals with not much intellect, you call them the Dinosaurs, correct? " Vasu nodded wide eyed.
"The fourth avatar was the Narasimha avatar, half man and half animal, the evolution from wild animals to intelligent beings.
Fifth the Waman avatar, the midget or dwarf, who could grow really tall. Do you know why that is? Cause there were two kinds of humans, Homo Erectus and the Homo Sapiens and Homo Sapiens won that battle." Vasu could see that his Mother was in full flow and he was stupefied.
"The Sixth avatar was Parshuram, the man who wielded the axe, the man who was a cave and forest dweller. Angry, and not social.
The seventh avatar was Ram, the first thinking social being, who laid out the laws of society and the basis of all relationships.
The eight avatar was Krishna, the statesman, the politician, the lover who played the game of society and taught how to live and thrive in the social structure.
The Ninth avatar, the Buddha, the man who rose from Narasimha and found man's true nature. The nature of Buddha, he identified man's final quest of enlightenment.
And finally, my boy, will come Kalki, the man you are working on. The man who will be genetically supreme."
Vasu looked at his Mother speechless. "This is amazing Mom, how did you.. This makes sense!"
"Yes it does Vasu! Now have your idlis."
Swami Shailendra Saraswati was born in a family of diverse cultural influences. His grandfather was a Vedic scholar while his father was an officer in the British Indian Army. From childhood, he was exposed to both, the oriental and the occidental world views. Unable to reconcile between the two, he decided to follow the reliable path of science to find answers to the ultimate questions of life and the universe. Physics became his religion.
Though selected for admission to IIT’s with an all India rank of 106, he decided to pursue pure science as a national science talent scholar with scholarship from NCERT. After completing B.Sc. honors in Physics from Delhi University, he chose elementary Particle Physics as his specialization in M.Sc. It was then that he started to realize that at the quantum level of reality, it will become necessary to understand consciousness as the source course and goal of the physical universe which was not possible by purely objective physical means used in Physics of that time.
Disillusioned with objective science, his attention briefly turned to the surface world of poverty and mismanagement in all spheres of life and as a consequence he started to study management .After completing PGDM from IIM Ahmedabad, and working in public and private sectors for a few years, he again realized the futility of trying to change the world at a superficial level.
Journey So far ..
In order to search for a real solution to the world’s problems, and to find the true purpose of life, he embarked on a Chautauqua- an introspective journey within, while at the same time traveling in India and then in western Europe on a bicycle for about a year.
His search ended with learning Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation (TM) at a forest academy in Finland. He was not yet ready to take a hasty decision or to abandon his natural skepticism about hazy metaphysical and pseudo-religious approaches based on blind faith which he had come across repeatedly till then. Believing that in order to be reliable, any knowledge must be verifiable by both approaches –objective as well as subjective, he got into a routine of long meditations interspersed with a rigorous critical examination of the methodology used for the published scientific research studies on TM. However after thorough examination from all angles he was forced to come to the conclusion that TM is in fact the panacea capable of creating a utopia. Convinced of TM’s potential to solve all problems of an individual and the world, he decided to dedicate his life to the practice and propagation of TM.
Natural support came when His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi chose him to accompany him on his repeated world tours and for more than 25years since then, he enjoyed the good fortune of close personal guidance from Maharishi ji in his spiritual pursuits. Surrendering his will to Maharishi’s commands, he served his world wide movement in different capacities.
After serving as founding principal of Maharishi College of Management at Nairobi, Kenya and Dean of faculty at Maharishi International University at Oslo, Norway he taught Managerial Statistics and Physics at Maharishi University of Management at Fairfield, Iowa, USA. While teaching Physics, he became convinced that the Unified Field of all the laws of nature which according to Physics is the source of all matter, energy and intelligence in the universe, is nothing but the field of consciousness itself, the ultimate field of subjectivity and that it is this which is experienced through TM and utilized to produce any desired effect through the TM Sidhi program. Having been convinced of the all powerful nature of consciousness based Vedic technologies, the question remained as to why India with all her Vedic knowledge was in a state of affairs as it is. It remained to find out the misunderstanding which caused the Vedic literature to be misinterpreted. This required a deep study of the whole of Vedic literature in original Sanskrit.He studied the forty aspects of Vedic literature and finally, corroborated his studies with direct personal experience of the Vedic teachings by doing sadhana under Maharishi’s guidance in the forests of Amarkantak, the source of Narmada River in the Vindhyachal Mountains for eight years.
After Maharishi Mahesh Yogi left his mortal coil, Swami Shailendra Saraswati has decided to continue Maharishi’s work in the world by teaching TM and the advanced techniques of TM Sidhis.
