Spiritual research since 1985. Dedicated to the spiritual progress of every individual and society as a whole.
Introduction
The Spiritual Science Research Foundation (SSRF) is a non-profit organisation. Its seekers have undertaken extensive and exhaustive research in the spiritual realm since 1985, and have recently begun to publish this spiritual research on its website. In doing so, the SSRF intends to demystify the spiritual realm and provide research that will help every individual to effectively alleviate difficulties in life and progress spiritually.

“The present is determined by our past actions, and the future by the present.”

It is something like Newton’s third law of motion, which states that, “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction”. The law of karma is infallible. Throughout our lives we are either settling an old account or creating a new one. If the account cannot be settled in this birth it is carried over to the next birth. We are not consciously aware of the give-and-take accounts generated in our previous births.

According to the science of Spirituality, most of our family members are people with whom we have positive or negative accounts from previous births. The reason for this is that one has to be in the proximity of the other person with whom one has karma in order to experience either pleasure or pain.

Chanting and meditation – what is the difference?

Nowadays, meditation is widely advised as a practice that helps quieten the mind, relieve it from stress and achieve higher levels of concentration or relaxation. The term ‘meditation’ actually refers to the superconscious, thoughtless state. This state is experienced after intense spiritual practice. Chanting is the repetition of God’s Name.

Some practical benefits of chanting compared to meditation:

1. Uninterrupted spiritual practice
2. Continuity of spiritual practice
3. Reduction in likes and dislikes
4. Continuous ‘awakened state’ or the spiritual experience of God
5. Protection from negative energies

In today's time many people practice meditation as a psychological self-improvement technique rather than a tool for spiritual growth. Due to this, the benefits derived from such meditation are also at a psychological level. Hence, meditation is difficult to achieve in today’s times and chanting is of greater value to those seeking spiritual growth. If you already meditate with the intention of achieving spiritual growth, we recommend you complement it with the spiritual practice of chanting.

A True Disciple

Sage Veddharma had an ashram on the banks of river Godavari. He lived there with many of His disciples. Among them was a disciple named Deepak, who was his favourite. Deepak had utmost faith in his Guru.

The Sage once thought of testing the devotion of his disciples. He called all his disciples and told them, "In my previous birth, I committed a great sin. I have to bear the consequences of it. By doing spiritual practice in this birth, I have depleted some of it. But the remaining part of it has to be borne by me soon. It will affect my body in the form of a disease. I intend to stay in Kashi (a place in north India) during this period. Is anyone among you ready to come with me and serve my diseased body?" Hearing this, all the disciples remained silent except Deepak, who immediately replied, "Gurudev, I am ready to come to Kashi and serve you.""

The Guru replied, "Think twice before you commit to this. I will be in the diseased state, being blind and lame, for almost 2 years. Till then you will have to serve me." Deepak thought for a moment and said, "Gurudev, can I take your disease and stay in Kashi instead of you?" Hearing Deepak's words, the Sage was pleased and said, "No, you cannot, since each one has to bear the consequences of ones own deeds."

After a few days both of them left for Kashi. Within few days of reaching Kashi, the Sage's body started decaying. There were boils all over his body, his eyesight became weak, his movement was restricted. Deepak served his Guru truthfully and wholeheartedly. He helped his Guru in all his mundane activities. Sometimes Sage Veddharma would get angry with Deepak for no particular reason, but still Deepak remained calm and continued to serve the sage without any complaint.


Seeing Deepak's true Gurubhakti (devotion towards his Guru), Lord Shiva was pleased with and appeared before him. He said, "Ask for a boon and I shall fulfill your desire." Deepak replied, "I will ask my Guru about it." Deepak asked his Guru whether he should ask Lord Shiva to cure him of the disease. Sage Veddharma replied in the negative. So Deepak told Lord Shiva accordingly.

After a few days, Lord Vishnu appeared before him, praised him for his Gurubhakti and offered to grant him a boon. He replied, "Oh Lord! If you wish to grant me a boon, please grant me that my Gurubhakti increases." Lord Vishnu said, "You saw God in your Guru and served Him. You have proved that God and Guru are one and the same. You have thus increased the importance of both. I shower you with my blessings!" Thus, Deepak continued to serve his Guru. Sage Veddharma was very pleased with Deepak that he had passed the test. He blessed him and said, "You are my one true disciple. May you live long and your fame spread far and wide."

Dear all, why do you feel having devotion towards a Guru (spiritual master) or God is important for one's spiritual growth?

Nice moral. There's a saying in Kannada "Guruvina gulamanaguva tanaka sigadanna mukuti" which means, there can't be 'mukti' or enlightenment unless until you become a true server of your guru.
Even in Sufism, which I'm inclined towards, the importance of a guru or 'peer' is undisputable.

Spiritual transformation – Finding God again

Introduction

I was three when my parents decided that I should go to school, as I needed too much attention at home because I was never quiet. So I spent three years at a nursery school until I was old enough to start my primary school years. Those three years would mark my life as being a little girl; I was not ready to cope with the fun that peers would make of me because of my weight. I must have been five when my mind started experiencing emotional and psychological conflicts that strongly influenced my behaviour throughout the years that followed.

Tattoos – A spiritual perspective

For many people today, tattoos have a personal, symbolic, aesthetic, ethnic or cultural meaning, or are a statement of their individuality. Tattoos have found their way into mainstream fashion trends and are now common to both men and women of all age groups and backgrounds.

While many of us may have at some point admired a particular tattoo design or decided we wanted one ourselves, we would not have been aware of the effect that tattoos have at a spiritual level. To understand what happens when a tattoo is worn, SSRF conducted spiritual research on tattoos.

Divine changes in the colour of H.H. Dr. Athavale’s nails and its science

This book captures/delineates a very unique spiritual phenomenon for mankind - the transformation in the colour of the nails and toes of H.H. Dr. Athavale, a Paratpar Guru or a Saint of the highest order. These changes are Divine in nature and bestow Divine consciousness (Chaitanya), positivity on the entire Universe.

Lives of Saints are mysterious. It is difficult to understand their intricacies. When they progressively reach close to God, their psychological and intellectual features (due to actual dissolution of the mind and intellect) undergo changes. These changes take place due to their spiritual practice; because the sattvaguṇa (Sattva component) in the individual increases and he acquires Chaitanya. Later, he progresses from being a Saint to being a Guru, Sadguru and finally to a Paratpar Guru. In this process, he progresses from the level of Chaitanya to the levels of Anand (Bliss) and finally Shanti (Peace). In short, he progressively acquires Divine qualities.

Many have theoretical information on the changes in qualities. Along with the changes in qualities, there are physical changes in the body too. In other words, Divinity is visible in the physical form too; hence, these are called ‘Divine changes’. However, so far no one seems to have studied this aspect. Only Paratpar Guru H.H. Dr. Athavale, has studied this aspect. The special characteristics of H.H. Dr. Athavale are His intense curiosity and His quality of making available the results of His research and new knowledge for the benefit of mankind and not keeping it to Himself.

Various aspects such as why H.H. Dr. Athavale’s nails are pink, why the yellow colour of His nails turned white etc. which symbolise His Incarnate mission are also explained in this book. Another feature of this book is that it has been compiled by H.H. Dr. Athavale Himself; as no one can throw light on His own significant aspects but He Himself and because of His yearning that all should understand new aspects of Spirituality, which have so far not been published anywhere else, in an appropriate manner. As the features of His life and mission etc. are associated with Spirituality and the Brahmanda (Universe) at the samashti (for the sake of the society) level, the writing is very important.

Spiritual healing -- Nyas

Nyas or any other self healing technique should always be accompanied by chanting. By chanting we imbibe divine energy of the aspect of God Whose Name we chant. By doing nyas, we channelise the divine energy derived from the chanting to that particular spiritual energy centre. By doing so, that energy is dispersed to the organs in that area.
