I, the writer, Gautam Chatterjee remain

at the feet of


Swamiji Satyananadji Marharaji

Pujaniya Premji Maharajji

Dr Viswamitraji Maharajji

Swamiji Satyanandji Maharajji propounded the mode of spiritual cultivation of RAM NAAM through simple method of Constant Remembrance or Simran or sumiran, Raam Naam Jaap and Dhyan. All these with swadhay or self study is done in Sadhna Satsang that paves the path for spiritual elevation. Ram is Mahamantra, its an eternal entity. Ram is Nirakar Raam or Formless singular Omnipotent. Raam is Naad or Sound. Raam is Jyoti or eternal light. In Ram Naam sadhana there is no ritual or prashad aur offering. The whole concept of Ram Upasana is Bhav Upasana.

Total philosophy of Ram Naam is encoded in Shree Amritvani which was divine creation. Through regular melodious rendering one can attend the ecstasy of Spiritual Sublimity. Through crores of Raam Naam jaap one not only wash of one’s aberrations but get the sublime connect with divinity. Raam Naam philosophy is matter of connecting the deeper self within and relates the self to the wider divine context. Ram Naam as spiritual practice offers realizations and revelations within as RAM is Param Guru who is Divine Destiny and eternal guide as well.

All alone on a Full Moon evening I was given Diksha by
Swamiji Dr Viswa Mitterji Mararajji in his room (Ground Floor inner room).
Then after I wrote few lines and placed before him.
It is just a NOSTALGIA. I am sharing...
as if I am talking to my guru once again....

It was Purnima
the 12th January,1998
My date with my Guru.
His blessings, His radiance
His celestial sound
took me for eternal bathing!
It was brilliance of light
as if touchable, feel-able.
It was Ram in varying frequency
explored the ether within
the pronunciation and
the phonetic pulses
took me for a swim
nay, swing in HIS lap!
I found myself
amidst the light and sound
For me it was Bliss
I could not utter
nay,never wanted to speak
as if my speechlessness
was the only communication.
Peace remained within
I forgot to talk aloud
or do emotional outbursts.
All around
synchronised with my
I merge and swim
in Ram, for my celestial destiny.
I have lost myself
and named myself again
Ramansha,a part of
all mighty, all pervading
My guru and He--Sri RAAUM.
I shall wait ....
I want to participate in
Universal healing,
Prepare me for that
My Guru. My only one.

Hereafter I tossed again and again on ‘Ram Naam Dhuli’ but being the worst and unworthy disciple I fumbled again and again in my spiritual course. Yet, every time I was lifted by my Param Guru as a mother lifts her crying child fallen on the ground with deepest touch of care, love and comfort.

I must admit most of my debacles are due to materialistic pressure and my spiritual journey was halted again and again like a passenger Train halting at every station. Nevertheless, after my Diksha I felt always blessed, possessed, guided and protected all the time. The concept of utterance of ‘Ram Naam’ created a linkage within myself which finally became the communication mode with my Guru. I recall in Greek mythology there were references of communication through ‘cosmic mind’. All these years I used to think its something practicable at very higher plane and not achievable by mortal like us! But in the post diksha state I discovered that it was possible and if one is serious and dedicated then one can hear, see and smell the aroma associated with Guru. I know you are sciptical, but I am narrating what I saw and felt and for me this is an unquestionable phenomenon! Today science has proved that sound has creative and uncreative energy of all kind. But as a Sadhak I can say that ‘Sonic’ Ram in uttered and unuttered state creates a celestial linkage and Guru is also accessible through this system of communication.

After installing the ‘sound icon’ within, the manifestive string of Raum Raum uttered at different frequency creates the harmony of natural law within and outside! And once our body and mind is inter-knitted with ‘Ram Ram’ like the beads of sonic garland then anything is possible. And I have experienced few of them!

From textual tradition it is learnt that Swamiji Maharaj Satyanandji always stressed on character building as a mandatory aspect for any Sadhak! So is emphasized by Maharishi Swamiji Dr Viswa Mitterji Maharajji who said that if one does constant japa then only one can actually control the negative qualities of life!

Well! This is a fact and I have experimented with it! I can vouch that all given negatives of our nature would take a backseat if one is serious, honest and effortlessly practice the Ram Ram Japa which gradually becomes Ajapa Japa and Ram Ram resounds within oneself even in deep sleep! In this state even the latent ‘negatives never dream to wake up’! The series of E books on Ram Naam Chitta Sadhana highlights many aspects of Ram Naam Philosophy and unfolds mysticism as well!
