A Brief Glimpse at Guru-Psi,
from Love in Transition,Vol. IV, p. 386
From the High Yogi Point of View, based on the life of the
Kundalini Maha Yoga Guru, Sri Dhyanyogi Madhusudandasji, who "left
the body," in India, on the morning of the celebration of the birthdate
of the Hindu god Krishna—at 117 years old in the summer of 1994:
Dhyanyogi-ji was known to be a
devotee of Lord Hanuman. See
According to Hindu teachings, "When Lord Vishnu incarnated as Rama on earth, Lord
Shiva took the form of Lord Hanuman as a monkey to serve his master.
In Indian spiritual history, there never has been, and never will
be, a devotee so complete and profound as Lord Hanuman."
Below is the excerpt From the High Yogi Point of View:
October 1978 in Sacramento the yogi Dhyanyogi [Guruji] was sitting
in a workshop, in which a medical doctor had recorded blood-pressure
and temperature changes during mantra chanting." After finishing
the experiment, Guruji wanted to play with the doctor who was taking
the temperature and blood pressures, Alan Lee, M.D., so he began
to increase and decrease his blood pressure by his yogic powers(p. 81).
After a few tests registered widely different readings, "Guruji
asked the doctor what he should do and what advice he could give
due to the vastly changing blood pressure. The doctor was embarrassed
and said that he could give no advice because he had never seen
blood pressure change so radically in such a short period of time.
Guruji asked the doctor what was real. Were the tests real, or was
the doctor real or was Guruji real? Everyone laughed and the doctor
realized Guruji had been playing a game with him" (p. 82)
The doctor was at the workshop to record the shifts in blood pressure
and temperature of meditators, as a result of Guruji's chanting
what is called the Bija Mantra: "a series of sounds corresponding
to the letters inscribed on the various petals of each chakra?"
In some ways "before" his time, though working in ancient techniques
and traditions, Sri Guruji Dhyanyogi was interested in furthering
tests in science of yogi techniques and participated in some test—such
as the above. But he ultimately returned to India, not continuing
the experimentation. One notes that the current investigation
facilitates such interconnecting research as the ancient experiments
in sound and the modern interest in sound. This is only at its threshold
of being explored in the West now.
However, not continuing the
scientific tests "in the body," Dhyanyogi did, out of the body,
discarnate as incarnate, align with events that continue to unfold
and which he is often clearly associated with. More on this later. As it has to do with Guru-psi. Some of
the effect of that was witnessed in an illustration by this author,
bearing upon the conjunctions of a movie scene from the future with
a plane crash that was halted in mid-start (only a wing fire) and
a dream announcement that a test had been set up (given
by Jyoti) . The test bearing upon what the movie scene glimpsed
inside a dream in the present would unfold when the whole movie
accidentally seen in the future was thereafter seen in the present.
And how Guru-psi works in time. As does Quantum Mechanics. However,
that on the particle level. While this is the "macro"-. Or large-scale,
as opposed to the ultra-minute. But what do the two have in common?

Review of This House is on Fire
"This House is on Fire is a new spiritual classic. A small boy
runs off to the Himalayas to become enlightened and a young girl
astonishes her family by entering mystical states of
consciousness. These are the true stories of Dhyanyogi and Anandi
Ma. They are not legendary figures from centuries ago, but saints
of our own time whose extraordinary lives are chronicled by eye
witnesses. Every page of this book is a treasure."

Kundalini— and the Sun
From Shakti: An Introduction to
Kundalini Maha Yoga
of this introduction is to acquaint you with the Shakti, or
Kundalini, and the related form of yoga known as Kundalini Maha
on which it is based is very simple. In every human being there is a
source of divine energy, called Kundalini, in Sanskrit. It exists
within the individual in two states, one dormant and one awakened
and active. When it is dormant, a person leads an unhappy,
unfulfilled life. The understanding of the universe is restricted
and everything is perceived and interpreted according to a limited
capacity. When the Kundalini is aroused and active, a person makes
rapid progress on the path of spiritual evolution. The full
potential of body and mind are realized, inner peace, harmony and
integration are attained, and ultimately the sublime truth of unity
in diversity is experienced—the fact that all life is one seamless
of this yoga is to awaken the Kundalini if it is dormant and to
intensify its activity if it has been aroused. Thus, Kundalini Maha
Yoga is a direct method of spiritual evolution, and as such its
importance is obvious. There are also side benefits, such as the
spontaneous healing of many diseases of body and mind.
yogi can awaken the Kundalini by a transfer of his energy to the
student; this acts as the initial impetus. The process is called
Shaktipat (Shakti meaning “power” or “energy” in Sanskrit,
and pata meaning “transfer.”) . . .
us look at the role Kundalini Maha Yoga can play in solving the
problems of the world. As we all know, during the past several
decades scientific development has taken place at a staggering rate.
It is both a joy and a surprise to watch science progress. However,
since the storehouse of nature is limitless, the more we know, the
more remains to be known. . . .
. . . But a
strong body and mind are not sufficient. . . .
A basic cause
of [world ] problems [the buildup of nuclear weapons, hate. etc.] is
that the general level of consciousness [mass consciousness] and
other spiritual qualities has not evolved to the same extent that
the material side of civilization has. We are in a state of
unbalanced development, lacking on the spiritual side. Therefore, to
attain what is missing—peace, harmony and unity with all beings—it
is necessary to realize that the entire universe is the creation of
God, that all life is one and that we are one. This realization is
spiritual realization, not the merely intellectual comprehension of
an ideal. Spiritual evolution alone is the solution to the
problem facing us. Kundalini Maha Yoga is a way to spiritual
evolution and therefore a significant tool for the development of
mankind on the spiritual plane. It is a path to peace,
prosperity, unity and love. . . . [emphasis added]
I have come
for the dissemination of spiritual knowledge. It is my hope that
this book will aid this purpose. . . . My message is
straightforward. I invite you all to come, sit, meditate, experience
and judge for yourselves. May God bless you all.

WHAT IS KUNDALINI?
that there are many similarities between the human body and the
entire universe, the microcosm and the macrocosm. The Upanishads say
that in the region of the heart is a hollow space the size of the
tip of the thumb that contains all things. All elements, all things,
regardless of whether they are present or absent in the immediate
external environment, are present in this microcosmic universe in
There are 101
types of nadis, the channels though which prana [energy] flows in
the subtle body. One called Hita is of particular
significance here, for just as a road connects two towns, this nadi
is connected to the Sun and energy is collected from the Sun through
it. By concentrating on this nadi, one can achieve various kinds of
powers, like seeing things happening very far away, having the
ability to do healing, having visions of gods, saints or previous
world, on both the subtle and the physical level, although the atoms
and molecules are in constant motion through their mutual attraction
and repulsion, many of the laws of their behavior are unknown. . .
