Aaiyyanist Conference and retreat

Greetings, my many friends. I am just confirming that I will indeed be attending the Aaiyyanist retreat/forum next week in Kanchipuram. As you know these retreats are well away from the humdrum of modern life so I (and many other Aaiyyanists) will not have access to the internet, email or even phones. A suggestion to all of my readers and the wider Aaiyyanist community, that being detached from modernity is a very good thing and should be trialled at least once per year.

So, we will be away for a couple of weeks to discuss the future direction of the Aaiyyan World Foundation and also to discuss Swami Dhaval’s podcast (especially his last one which talked about extremely sensitive information concerning very dangerous Tantric methods.) This was flagged several times by many High Aaiyyanis, and thus it was decided that a proper forum/retreat would be the best environment for these controversial subjects to be discussed.

I personally believe that these highly sensitive secrets from the Tantric Forms of Aaiyyanism should not be disseminated to the general public in this manner, but there are a few prominent Aaiyyanists that disagree.

I will do a more in depth blog post about this when I get back.

A criticism of Swami Dhaval’s podcast

Greetings all. I have been on a meditative retreat with my students this past month or so, so haven’t kept upto date with my blog – so sorry to all those people who are subscribing and expecting a regular stream of information. My main obligations are to my students first and foremost. Having said that something caught my attention in the world of Aaiyyanism recently that I should comment on. In fact one of my students brought this to my attention. And that is this podcast and youtube video about Astral projection presented by Swami Dhaval:

https://anchor.fm/aaiyyanist/episodes/12–The-Dravidian-Aaiyyanist-Science-of-Astral-Projection-e1id6h

My main concern with this podcast is that Swami Dhaval is teaching people how to run a marathon before teaching them how to walk. The teaching he is presenting here is so ‘high level’ as to be unusable to the average person who knows nothing about Dravidian Aaiyyanism and the ancient methods. It takes many years of study, of meditation and yogic practise before one can fully embrace the teachings presented in this podcast. I do understand Swami Dhaval’s mind-set though, in that he believes that only High Level Aaiyyanists will listen to this particular podcast, or people who were of a sufficient high level in their previous incarnations and are returning to Aaiyyanism.

Swami Dhaval and many other orthodox Aaiyyanists in the Aaiyyan World Foundation believe that the Universe itself (or Brahman’s will) will conspire to only reveal this information to the spiritually inclined, i.e. those individuals who are attuned to the Aaiyyanist method. These individuals can be attuned to Aaiyyanism either from many previous incarnations, or by being given divine will by Brahman via Murugan-Aaiyyan in this incarnation. Thus they argue that any information they present will be directed at the people ‘who it is intended to be heard by’, no one more and no one less. They argue that Brahman will direct the correct people to this path and block the access to people who should not have access to this information.

There is a similar argument for allowing Aaiyyan Stones to be made widely available, as the Aaiyyan World Foundation have insisted that only those who are spiritually deserving (as determined by the Universal OM) , will be granted access. So only those who really show intent in learning these methods such as Astral projection will be granted the boon, just as the ancient Aaiyyanist Kings and Queens of old would request boons from Murugan Aaiyyan. I believe this argument on how the Universe operates has yet to be determined, as many of you know from my previous blog posts.

So all I ask of Swami Dhaval is that he starts off slow and builds up this information. Start with an introduction into meditation, then follow that with various techniques to increase your mental and psychic abilities. Do a podcast on the various meditative techniques on unlocking Lokas. Swami Dhaval should have at least mentioned the techniques in full to achieve a lucid dream state, that can be used to gleam future events and then followup with a podcast on how to read dreams and future states of reality (i.e the Dravidian techniques of clairvoyance).

I hope this clarifies my position.

Spiritual Pilgrimages and more.

Namaste,everyone who follows my blog. I have been on various pilgrimages these last few months so have not had much time to update this blog, so deepest apologies for that. I have also been working with many Aaiyyanists around the world on various projects, both charitable and spiritual.

This is really just a quick post to everyone that they should also follow a path of spirituality and pilgrimage. I have decided to take a year or even more to travel to every single Murugan and Murugan Aaiyyan temple in the world and record my journey. I will record my findings in a book or may post it to this blog when I am online. I am not sure yet.

But I must say one thing. Being online and  on the internet and dealing with emails can be very engaging but also can act as a detraction. When I was in the forests and the hills, alone with my thoughts and meditating on the truth nature of Murugan-Aaiyyan, I realised that  I was truly at a place of peace and tranquillity… with my own thoughts and the spirits and Gods around me.

So I urge everyone to be at one with everyone, travel, turn your phone off for a few days, meditate and try to find your own path to Brahman oneness.

Good luck and I’ll be back on the blog in perhaps a few weeks… depending on what findings I discover on the inner journey that I am undertaking to Brahman.

The Origin of the Vel

Greetings everyone. I am just forwarding a message from the Aaiyyan World Foundation:

=======================================================

Namaste, we have released a draft version of ‘The Origin of the Vel’ here

This story is essentially a teaching aid for young Hindu Aaiyyanist students, between the ages of 9-16. So if any adult Aaiyyanists reads this, please bear in mind the simplicity of the translation and the concepts. This text is also collated from a collection of Dravidian Aaiyyani sources i.e. this is an amalgam of Veliyyaan from the archives of the Aatmaani School (200 AD) and Veliyyaanal from the Aardra School (50 BCE). We have also translated the dialogue sections from the ancient Dravidian Aaiyyanist play: Veyallaya (600 AD) and incorporated this into the text.

Re-entering the physical world

Before I write this next post, I have to apologise for its rambling nature. It is just that I am journeying from a spiritual dimension and entering/returning back to the physical world. So here it goes.

Its been a strange few days being back in the material world. The last few weeks have been spent at an Aaiyyanist retreat, and for many Aaiyyanist that read this, you will know what I am talking about. It is the disjoint between the spiritual plane and the physical reality when one crosses back from the source of Aaiyyanism to the center of materialism that can be described as Chennai, or any other major city on this planet.

Many Aaiyyanists know the routine. To prepare myself I firstly spent some time at a remote Murugan ashram and began to leave the material world behind and enter the spiritual zone. Many Dravidian Aaiyyanists follow this path. The path of firstly purifying oneself and entering a spiritual plane. The ashrams most Aaiyyanist choose are the ashrams that not only allow Bhakti/worship of Murugan, but also strive and teach and demonstrate the Dravidian yogic practises and the ancient scriptures.

Once you have achieved the correct level, the adept then leaves the Murugan ashram and is directed to the Aaiyyanist retreat. (This is by invitation only as the heads of Aaiyyanist schools usually teach there and want to educate those of us blessed to be at a certain spiritual level.) I have been an Aaiyyanist for many years, and it is always an honour to be invited to a retreat where one can partake in yogic practises that enable one to leave this material plane and consciously travel to the many dimensions that are around us.

And this is the problem. When one enters an Aaiyyanist retreat, you spend your days meditating, reading scriptures, preparing yourself physically and spiritually on a path of oneness. There are a small number of fellow Aaiyyanists (around 20 men and women) who share this journey with you. After the first week of this, one is then shown (or reshown) the yogic pathways needed for your spirit/atman projection to dis-inhabit your body and travel firstly within this Universe (to the many stars and planets), then as the days go by, one transforms the inner-self into being able to travel to other realms. You travel with your group who are at various levels of Aaiyyanism and may follow different schools of thought.

Then you are asked to leave the retreat and enter back into the physical world. Now, there are many Aaiyyanists that do not want to enter back into this lower world of materialism and its anti spiritual message. There are many that in fact become part of the S’uunyatal School (a higher offshoot the hermit S’uunya School) and continue their journeys (either alone or with a small group) to the many instances of reality that make up everything that is a part of Brahman.

However…I have obligations to this physical plane. Obligations to my students, family, friends and my work as an Aaiyyanist. But in a few years when I retire I have decided to be a S’uunyatal and will continue this journey with my students, if they wish to accompany me.

I am back

Greetings all. I have returned from a few weeks away on an Aaiyyanist Retreat. I will be just catching up with my emails and other administrative works over the next few days.

I would like to say a special thank you to my fellow Aaiyyanists who have corrected some spelling and grammatical errors on my blog. This is very kind of you all to help me.

I will post some new updates over the next month and look forward to getting into the swing of things once more.

 

Patreon Site

Greetings. Just a quick post to say that the Aaiyyan World Foundation and other Aaiyyanists online are pooling their resources and have set up a Patreon site to deal with minor expenses concerning web hosting and translation. More details can be found here:

https://www.patreon.com/AaiyyanistAdmins

Basically the AWF get a large number of emails from Dravidian Aaiyyanists, but are now also getting a significant number of emails from English speakers. So to help with translations, volunteers and also bandwidth and hosting costs they have set up this Patreon site.

This is not for existing Aaiyyanists, but for new Aaiyyanist members who want to help to spread the message of Aaiyyanism and also to show some minor support to the movement. It will also be used as a means of getting more readers to the Aaiyyanist-Murugan lexicon and a way of focusing our attention to those people that are linked to Aaiyyanism on a deeply spiritual level.

Note: We expect only like minded people who are linked spiritually to Aaiyyanism to support this. There are many who are interested in Aaiyyanism, but are not ‘linked’. The Universe will find the paths to connect those few souls out there, that were Aaiyyanists in previous lives but were not born as native Dravidian Aaiyyani speakers in this one. We shall see.

There is an additional benefit that supporters will receive high resolution images of Lokas created by Aaiyyani (master) level Artists. So please join us if you find yourself linked to our ideals.

 

The Politics of Aaiyyanism

The main tenet of Aaiyyanism is to be One with all. That is, we are One with all beings on this planet, the many worlds, this Universe and the many dimensions that make up our reality.

So what does this mean from a political standpoint?

Well it means that we must treat all with respect, dignity, love and closeness that can only be defined as being One with all. Thus all Aaiyyanists believe that, in a Universe where we are all One, there should be no borders, suffering, racism, sexism, xenophobia, religious intolerance or any prejudices whatsoever. Therefore, we must treat everyone as One with Us and Brahman.

The Aaiyyanist does not believe in man-made borders, created in the last hundred or so years. We do not believe or support building of walls to separate us from our fellow humans.

The Aaiyyanist  does not believe in discriminating on anyone, concerning their gender. In fact, our greatest teachers throughout the ages have been men, women and transgendered. There is no concept of wrong or incorrect sexual preference in Dravidian Aaiyyanism. All relationships between man/woman/transgendered are celebrated as a union between two beings that can only make us closer to Oneness.

There is no caste in Dravidian Aaiyyanism, the only distinction between Aaiyyanists is their rank and School of choice and this is determined by how many Aaiyyanist healings or Siddhi sessions that have been performed.

The Aaiyyanist is One with all and thus should care for All. In the ancient Dravidian Ashram Temple States there was no homelessness or poverty. Just like the modern tribes that exist  in untouched places such as the Amazon… all members of the tribe would take care of each other. Such was the same in the ancient Dravidian Aaiyyanist States that existed 15-100,000 years ago.  In fact, if you are reading this and this sentiment resonates with you, it is because you were an Aaiyyanist in your previous life and lived and experienced the perfected Aaiyyanist State firsthand.

It is only in modern history (the last couple of thousand years) that poverty, homeleness, inequality, xenophobia and other aberrations to spiritual and physical Oneness have been allowed to flourish.

Dravidian Aaiyyanists are also vigorously opposed to any form of injustice and will spiritually and physically fight against oppression. Most Dravidian Aaiyyanists are absolute pacifists, so will use a variety of passive non-violent resistance tactics to achieve the greater good… which is Oneness with all.

This Oneness means bringing the oppressors and the oppressed together, so that all feelings of separation fall away and we begin to care for one another in a pure Aaiyyanist/Brahmanic love. This can only be achieved if you preach and follow the doctrine of non-violence, for as soon as you partake in violent acts, you basically break the physical, metaphysical and spiritual links that bind us… and it makes it that much harder to achieve Oneness.

So what does this all mean in the modern reality we exist in today. Well, it is simple… all Aaiyyanists support and should promote any political group that brings us closer together with all peoples, races, religions and philosophies. The Aaiyyanist is actively against regimes, groups, political ideologies that promote hatred, intolerance and disharmony.

We think that most people who read these words will understand and follow their Aaiyyanist conscience when voting or being politically active in any way.

 

Marriage in Dravidian Aaiyyanism

Aaiyyanists are free thinkers. We believe that anyone has the right to live and share their lives with another being. The Dravidian Aaiyyanists have never discriminated against anyone choosing to spend their life with anyone else. In fact, 3000 years ago transgendered  Guru Teligian married her longest serving student and successor Guru Davinianal.

In the Aaiyyanist treatise: ‘The Mark’ (300BC) – it lays out the nature of marriage and how it can be a union between two individuals, or even two groups. In the historical story of the founding of the 4th Aaiyyanist Gurudom,  Guru Chahnanian married ten people who were in turn married to ten others such that the collective Ashram that eventually became the City State had an extremely close collective.  A collective so strong due to the fact that everyone was married or were related to one another through marriage. Of course such things maybe impossible in the modern world.

For non-Aaiyyanists, we should give a brief description of what marriage is and the philosophy behind it. In orthodox Dravidian Aaiyyanism, marriage is a sacred vow between two (or more) people to be with each other in this life and the next ten lives. (Some orthodox Hindus believe it is seven incarnations).  Suffice it to say, that marriage is a Holy contract, it is a promise…. a Karmic promise that stretches beyond all physicality and time.

A marriage is between any adults is over the age of 21 in traditional Aaiyyanism, as that is when the basic/intermediate Aaiyyanist training has finished. It is also the time when young Aaiyyanists can join a School and begin to specialise in their training, and thus they are spiritually able to make the Karmic promise of marriage.

There is no concept of sexual relations in the Dravidian Aaiyyanist marriage, it is purely a spiritual affair. Thus the Aaiyyanist is free to marry (make the Karmic promise) to anyone they choose. The nature of sexual relations, Yogic sexual practise and Tantra between man, woman, transgender or other affiliations should be discussed and taught further from the Dravidian Aaiyyanist School that you belong too. You must remember though, there is no discrimination in relations between any genders – all relationships, heterosexual, homosexual, asexual etc are fully permitted in Dravidian Aaiyyanism. The Aaiyyanist is absolutely free to choose their own partner and (in some Schools of thought) they are also encouraged to choose partners outside their chosen sexual preference. Traditionally, Dravidian Aaiyyanists are beyond sex and sexuality and are one with all beings, and this is confirmed by Aaiyyanist practise and doctrine.

Sometimes when a relationship breaks down in this lifetime, people separate and divorce. There is also no real concept of divorce in Dravidian Aaiyyanism. If a relationship breaks down between two individuals or many individuals, then they are free to live apart. This is permissible in Dravidian Aaiyyanism. However, the Karmic promise cannot be broken, so in their next ten incarnations these individuals or groups are destined to meet and form relationships once more. Whether that leads to a Dravidian Aaiyyanist wedding is up to the individuals, but if they do remarry in their next life, then the Karmic bond is reset for anther ten incarnations.

One must remember the purpose of reincarnation, and that is to reset our perceptions and feelings for one another. Even if you remember your past life, you will see it as a passive observer and be able to reconnect up with people in your previous lives that you left, betrayed, hurt etc… and correct the Karmic imbalance.

So in summary, in Aaiyyanism marriage is a Karmic contract with someone or many individuals or whatever gender, and it is a promise to be with them for this life and ten others. If the relationship falls apart in this life, the contract for the ten remaining lives continues on.

Jnana Yoga in the Aaiyyanist Tradition

The Aaiyyanists are the foremost experts in Jnana Yoga. What does this mean?

There are several different types of Yoga in the Hindu tradition. Karma Yoga which is the path of right action (doing good deeds etc… as a way to break the Karmic cycle and liberate yourself from the endless cycle of death and rebirth). Bhakti Yoga which is the path of devotion to a specific god such as Murugan, Shiva, Krishna, Vishnu, Ganesh etc… and in so worshipping the God you can attain a divine joyous liberation that transcends yourself as you merge into the higher being and become the living embodiment of Godhead. Dravidian Aaiyyanists do follow all these Yogic paths, but we are most famous for specialising in various forms of Jnana Yoga.

Jnana Yoga to the lay person is the Yoga of knowledge. In traditional Hinduism there are certain actions or attributes that determine the Jnana Yogic. For example, Viraga or Dispassionate indifference to worldly things – to attain Oneness. Viveka (Discrimination) – the ability to discriminate the difference between the true reality and the illusionary one we see before us… and also the ultimate ability to see the eternal rather than the temporary nature of the Universe we reside in.

The 6 virtues one must master to focus the mind and spirit in Jnana Yoga are called: Satsampat and include: Samadhana (concentration), Shraddha (faith in the truth of Dravidian Aaiyyanist wisdom), Titiksha (endurance of the mind and spirit, especially resilience to extreme conditions and sensory input). Uparati (renunciation of worldly things that are not linked to the spiritual path), Dama (control of one’s will and one’s bodily functions) and Shama (calmness/peacefulness of the mind). To achieve this, traditional Hindus perform three practises: Sravana (hearing), Manana (thinking) and Nididhyasana (meditation)

However, this is just touching the surface of what Dravidian Aaiyyanists mean by the Yoga of Knowledge.

In Dravidian Aaiyyanism there are some simple but powerful tools one can employ to achieve all the aspects above. In Aaiyyanism, one must master all the aspects noted above, but a great tool to aid the learner/practitioner is to memorise and draw the sacred symbols required to open positive Lokas. Let me re-iterate this for it is vitally important. In order to absolutely focus the mind and spirit young Aaiyyanists are taught the sacred scripts required to open positive Lokas (dimensions). Not only does this focus the mind and therefore fulfil all the obligations of Samadhana (concentration), Dama (control), Shama (calmness) – but by opening up positive Lokas one also achieves (by default) the attributes of Shraddha (faith) and Uparati (renunciation). The final aspect Titiksha – endurance of the mind and spirit to endure extremes of conditions (heat/cold, light/dark, positive and negative), will come naturally as you become resonantly attuned to the positive Lokas you will open when you inscribe the sacred symbols. This is inevitable. If you also couple this with Dravidian meditation techniques and the will to inscribe the symbols on a daily basis… within a few years of training you will begin to see the world as a Jnana Yogic. You will be able to discriminate between the true reality and the imagined one and also have an indifference to worldly aspects as you begin to get closer to the ultimate One: Brahman.

When you train to be an Aaiyyanist, you will be shown the sacred symbols that can open positive Lokas into your life. If you draw them on a continuous basis and meditate on them and focus, you will begin to become attuned to the positive dimensions and resonant energy that exists in our plane. Not only will this aid you in your temporal life, but it will help you achieve the liberation to Oneness that you were destined to complete.
