SADHANAS from DEVIKALOTTA JNACHARA VICHARA PATALAH by Swami Shantananda Puri





Devi Kalottara is one of the Tantrik texts rarely known even among the people deeply interested in spiritual texts and scriptures. Especially the chapter relating to the Jnana or Absolute truth became known to a limited circle in South India where for the first time, Bhagawan Ramana translated it into Tamil verses due to a spontaneous inner compulsion.

The main method of meditation discussed in this book is called Niralamba Yoga. There should be no support (alamba) for the mind like, for instance, a form of God, one of the six chakras (e.g. mooladhara etc.) or a mantra (sacred syllable) etc. This state of lack of any thought of either the world or of any imagined God etc., is called as void or Soonya. This is not the void of the Buddhists where the ultimate truth is held as emptiness or void. Here the state of absolute stillness of the mind without any thought whatsoever is called as void. In this state, the awareness of one’s being continues to exist.
