    " Mind is thrilled with creative activity; intellect is thrilled with the vision of the truth; the soul is thrilled with an experience of the truth. " We have to become masters of our mind. the ability to still our mind in an instant. In that stillness of mind, our inner senses get activated and begin to throw light on aspects of our invisible greater reality, plus the invisible cosmic reality."

HISTORY OF PSS MOVEMENT The Pyramid Spiritual Societies Movement Founded by Brahmarshi Patriji

    For the first time, MEDITATION has become available to the rural masses and to the urban elite alike, on a scientific basis ! For the first time, Pyramid Energy has been connected to meditation, on a massive scale. Under the extraordinary training of Patriji, thousands and thousands of pyramid masters have totally dedicated themselves to the great task of spiritual globalization. Pyramid Masters are spreading, on a war-footing, the science of anapanasati meditation and the message of vegetarianism to all the nooks and corners of India ! The Pyramid Spiritual Societies Movement (PSSM) was initially started by Brahmarshi Patriji as " The Kurnool Spiritual Society " ... during the year 1990, in Kurnool, a district headquarters town, Andhra Pradesh, India. The first pyramid ... of the size of 30' x 30' ... was constructed during the year 1991, at Kurnool, with the philanthropic support of Sri B.V.Reddy, a prominent industrialist of Kurnool Town. It was named as "Buddha Pyramid Meditation Centre". Subsequently, in the next three to four years, the Movement got expanded widely into several villages and towns in the Rayalaseema Area of Andhra Pradesh ... covering the four districts of Kurnool, Ananthapur, Kadapa and Chittoor.

    By the year 2000, all major towns through out the length and breadth of the State of Andhra Pradesh was bristilling with ' anapanasati meditation ' ! A target was fixed ... to cover the whole State of Andhra Pradesh ... village wise ... by the year 2004. End of the year 2004, the " Dhyanandhra Pradesh " program was officially concluded in Hyderabad, capital city of Andhra Pradesh, amidst great fanfare and celebrations ! By the time, thousands of villages and lakhs of people were successfully introduced to anapanasati meditation ... thanks to the sincere efforts ... by hundreds of dedicated full-time pyramid masters ! Simultaneous to efforts in Andhra Pradesh, Patriji also began to concentrate in the neighbouring States of Karnataka, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh etc., ... starting with the year 1998. Extensive areas were covered in the next few years. After the year 2004, new States were added eg. Andaman, Delhi, Uttaranchal, Tamilnadu, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Kerala etc. Hundreds of PYRAMID MASTERS, trained in all these States, began working for the spread of Anapanasati Meditation ... and a veritable spiritual revolution was sweeping the country ! The target fixed for the Pyramid Masters ... is to introduce anapanasati meditation in all the States of India by the year 2008 ! The first visit by Patriji to other countries was in the year 1999, when he went for a fortnight to conduct meditation classes in Singapore and Hongkong. In the years 2000 to 2002, a number of meditation sessions were conducted in Kathmandu, capital city of Nepal. In the year 2004, Patriji made a sixtyday trip to USA and ten States were covered and many meditation sessions were organized. In the year 2005, about forty pyramid masters along with Patriji went for a seven day meditational tour to Srilanka. In the year 2006, Patriji and a couple of pyramid masters conducted several meditation sessions in the cities of Melbourne and Sydney in Australia. In the year 2007, in the month of February a group of seventeen Pyramid Masters, along with Patriji, have visited Bhutan to conduct classes in Thimphu. The target for all the Pyramid Masters again is to introduce anapanasati meditation ... by the year 2012 ... in all the countries of the World. This is the biggest dream of all the pyramid masters ! One of the most important points of PSSM is to construct pyramids everywhere ! There are about thirty thousand villages in the State of Andhra Pradesh. The target is to construct one pyramid per village ... by the year 2008. Already, hundreds of pyramids have come up everywhere, in many of the villages and towns and cities of Andhra Pradesh. Further target is " pyramid bharat " ... i.e., all the major towns, in all the States of India, should have their own meditational pyramids ... by the year 2012. Already, many pyramids ... small and big ... have come up in several states. The final target is " pyramid jagat " ... i.e., the whole of the world should be covered by meditational pyramids by the year 2016 !

    GUIDING PRINCIPLES FOR THE MASTERS OF PYRAMID SPIRITUAL SOCIETIES PYRAMID MASTERS SHOULD... 1. Meditate in the right way... i.e., Anapanasati ... and help others meditate in the same way. 2. Read right spiritual books ... and encourage others also to read the same. 3. Exchange meditational experiences and life-wisdom ... readily ... with everyone. 4. Spend much time ... every now and then ... in silence. 5. Utilise full-moon nights for more intensive meditation. 6. Utilize pyramid energy for meditation, as much as possible. 7. Give-up medicines; only meditational energy helps. 8. Never eat meat ; no eggs! Eat according to need, not according to greed. 9. Spend much time in environments of pure nature e.g., forests, mountain-tops, river-sides etc. 10. Never indulge in any ' spiritual ' clothing, or 'sacred ' body marks. 11. Impart meditational training to children, right from their child-hood. 12. Learn to live as masters and never as disciples. 13. Reject money exchanges in meditation-training programs. 14. Never indulge in the worship of idols, or living masters. 15. Tackle all individual personal problems using own meditational energy. 16. Enjoy normal family lives, and take care, as much as possible, of all other beings. 17. Establish meditation centers in surrounding villages, towns or cities. 18. Publish meditational experiences and personal spiritual transformation. The world has to understand these eighteen principles. Every human being needs to keep in mind these eighteen principles to become a master. 1“ meditate in the right way ... i.e., anapanasati ... and help others meditate in the same way ” Meditation is the only foundation of spiritual experiences. Doing meditation and teaching meditation ... are concurrent things. As we learn, we should teach; the more we teach, the more we learn. There are not ‘ many ‘ ways of doing meditation ! There is but one … and that is Anapanasati. This was the discovery of Gautama Buddha 2500 years back ! The eighth point in the eight fold path of Buddha is ‘ samma sati ‘ … that is right way of doing meditation. Anapanasati is the only ‘ samma sati ‘ ! 2 “ read right spiritual books ... and encourage others also to read the same ” Sir Francis Bacon has emphatically stated that “ Wide reading maketh a full man “ ! It's not so easy to distinguish the ‘ right ’ spiritual books from the ‘ not so very right ’ spiritual books ! The world is full of either totally wrong spiritual books ... or ‘ fifty percent ’ right spiritual books or ‘ eighty percent ’ right spiritual books ... and so on and so forth ! However, there are totally right spiritual books too ! A few examples are ... books by Annie Besant, Osho, Carlos Castaneda, Deepak Chopra, Richard Bach, Jane Roberts, Shirley Maclaine, Linda Goodman, Barbara Marciniak, Mikhail Naimy, Kahlil Gibran, etc., etc. There are so many extraordinary spiritual books ! We have to encourage every person to read the same right books ! 3 “ exchange meditational experiences and life wisdom ... readily, with everyone ” Sir Francis Bacon has emphatically stated that “ Conference makes for a ready man “ ! When we do meditation, we have so many experiences ... astral travel experiences ... energy movements ... past-life visions ... clairaudience experiences etc., etc. Whatever the experiences, we have to share all of them ... instantly ... with our co-meditators ! We should also discuss them with the senior meditators. We have to keep exchanging our experiences, our information, and our wisdom ... with each and every person. We cannot keep our experiences to our own self. That would be to our own detriment ! Keeping our experiences to ourselves ... not expressing them to anybody else ... we live like a ‘ frog in the well ’. 4 “ spend much time, every now and then, in silence ” We have to learn to speak frugally ! We should not make ‘ extra efforts ‘ to speak more than that which is relevant and necessary ! We should never speak unnecessarily ! We have to earmark certain days in a week, certain hours in a day ... for silence. ‘ Mouna ’ is a great thing. In silence, we understand our own greatness and everybody else’s greatness ! In silence, we realize our own foolishness and everybody else’s foolishness too ! In trying to pour more words, we invariably become foolish ! One day per week ... for silence ... must be earmarked. 5 “ utilize full-moon nights for more intensive meditation ” Every month, the full-moon nights are so very precious ! We have to harvest the abundant energy ... cosmic energy ... which is especially available in those nights ... the three days around full-moon... one day preceding the full-moon, the full-moon night and one day after the full-moon night. On these full-moon nights, we should do more intensive meditation. A pyramid master needs to harvest so much full-moon energy ! 6 “ utilize pyramid energy for meditation, as much as possible ” Meditation is best done inside a pyramid, beneath the pyramid ... or we can have a pyramid cap on our head. Meditation is thrice more energetic and more powerful when done inside or beneath a pyramid. Pyramids have to be specifically oriented to ‘ north-south ’ magnetic axis, when built on a permanent basis. Pyramids can be made of any material ; preferably, crystals should be placed in the pyramid. 7 “ give-up medicines; only meditational energy helps ” The physical body is nothing but the natural shadow of mind. As the mind, so will be the body ! Setting right the mind, we would have set right the body. Upset the mind, the body becomes upset ! All diseases are psychosomatic ! Created in psyche, getting evident in the body ! The true science of health demands that we look only at the mind. Spiritual health is the root and physical health is the fruit. 8 “ never eat meat ... no eggs ... eat according to need, not according to greed ” Vegetarianism is absolutely essential for spiritual life. In fact, spirituality and vegetarianism are synonymous ! EVERY BODY HAS TO BECOME A VEGETARIAN ! Quantum vibrational science is slowly recognizing the ill effects of animal food in human systems. The cardinal principle of any religious movement is love. Love is nothing other than being kind to our co-animal-beings of the earth. ANIMALS ARE NOT FOOD FOR HUMANS ! Further, we can’t afford to over eat ! We should eat only according to our need ... not according to our greed. Only when we are hungry, we may eat ! If you are not hungry, you should never eat. 9 “ spend much time in environments of pure nature e.g., forests, mountain-tops, river-sides etc. ” Going into the raw nature, spending time with the nature ... we return as a changed person and truly more vitalized ! 10 “ never indulge in any ‘ spiritual ’ clothing, or ‘ sacred ’ body marks ” Many spiritual communities demand special clothes and special marks on the body to distinguish themselves from other spiritual denominations … or for some other imagined reasons. This is simply nonsense. Only common and ordinary attire should be the norm. We should be indistinguishable from others in matters of clothing. Further, there should not be any marks on forehead or somewhere else. Spirituality is a matter of inner achievement ... and there is nothing to show-off to others ! 11 “ impart meditational training to children, right from their child-hood ” We should catch people young ! We have to compulsorily teach meditation to the children ! Taking care of the child, we have taken care of the whole humanity ! 12 “ learn to live as masters and never as disciples ” We learn from each and every person in general … and we are not disciples of any one person in particular ! Becoming a disciple is not at all the life-goal ! Becoming a master is the goal of life ! As we think, so we become ! From day one of entering into meditation and spirituality, we should treat ourselves as masters ! There are no disciples and gurus, there are only junior masters and senior masters ! 13 “ reject money exchanges in meditation-training programs ” For earning money, we may sell vegetables … or we may take up farming … or we may sell music … or we may teach a language ! However … earning money through teaching meditation is strictly forbidden ! Teaching meditation should be absolutely free of any money constraints. 14 “ never indulge in the worship of idols, or living masters ” Idols are always beautiful ! Sculpture is truly a fine art ! However, idol ‘ worship ‘ is simply meaningless ! Neither the worship of living masters has any true benefit ! Living masters are sources of true inspiration ! They are not objects of worship ! We have to emulate the way of life of living masters ! We ourselves are gods. So, where is the question of worshipping any other person ? The point is to bring out the essence from within our own selves through intense practice of meditation. 15 “ tackle all individual personal problems using own meditational energy ” We all have our personal problems. Our personal problems have to be tackled by our own inner meditational strength. The more we increase our personal energy, the more the external situations become conducive to our true goals. No guru can help us to ease our problems. Our problems are only challenges … that are self-chosen … before we are born … and they must be mostly calmly endured ! Meditation gives all the capacity we need to endure challenging life situations ! 16 “ enjoy normal family lives, and take care, as much as possible, of fellow beings ” Some religions prescribe sexual abstinence as if it is a necessary pre-requisite for the cultivation of the soul ! However, it is far from true ! Sexuality is truly a source of human happiness and sexuality and spirituality are not mutually exclusive. Pyramid masters lead normal family lives and take care of their fellow beings … human and animal … as much as possible ! Friendships are the carry home baggage for every soul. What survives death of the physical body is only friendship. Relationships die with the physical body. And, we are not the physical bodies ! 17 “ establish meditation centers in surrounding villages, towns or cities ” Pyramid masters are required to establish meditation centers in surrounding villages, towns or cities. Every pyramid master is a Bodhisattva or a Buddha ! Bodhisattva is a person who is stationed in one place and teaches all the persons who may approach him, and Buddha is a person who moves from place to place and teaches those who welcome him. 18 “ publish meditational experiences and personal spiritual transformation ” Sir Francis Bacon has emphatically stated that “ Writing maketh a perfect man “ ! We have to pen our meditational and spiritual experiences and publish them as a rule. Every master’s contribution to the world should be in black and white. ANAPANASATI MEDITATION THE PROCEDURE Close your eyes take all the time you need to get comfortable shift muscles stretch and relax spine and neck are relaxed...not held stiffly ! there is no stiffness here just comfort ... the beginning of calm ... there is no hurry now there is nothing else to do ... or think about ... just pure relaxation ! Be the Breath INHALE softly, easily... EXHALE softly, easily let your breath be a rhythm of calm your breath is a rhythm of calm follow your breath Be Calm BE WITH YOUR BREATH use your mind to follow your breath in ... out ... in ... out that is all Be Still BE WITH YOUR BREATH be with your breath-energy Anapanasati Meditation is so simple .. so very easy .. not al all difficult Meditation can be done by any one at any age at any time at any place Meditation should be done regularly ... every day meditation should be done .. as per one's age in terms of so many minutes .. e.g., twenty minutes .. if your age is twenty years .. forty minutes .. if your age is forty years and so on and so forth Spiritual health is root and Physical Health is the fruit. Anapanasati Medittation alone gives Spiritual Health to a person Meditation is the greatest gift to be given to our lives .. by our own efforts. The physical body has its own natural and easy rhythm of the breath. In meditation, the mind has to become totally attuned to the normal rhythmic nature of the breath of the physical body. VEGETARIANISM Arthur E. Powell ... of the Theosophical Society ... has beautifully said the following: " A physical body nourished on impure food will produce a correspondingly impure astral body, whilst a physical body fed on clean food and drink will help to purify the astral vehicle. " " It is impossible to make the physical body coarse and at the same time to organize the astral and mental bodies for finer purposes ... neither is it possible to have a pure physical body with impure mental and astral bodies. All three bodies are thus inter-dependent. " " Carnivorous diet is fatal to anything like real occult development, and those who adopt it are throwing serious and unnecessary difficulties in their own way, for flesh blood intensifies all the undesirable elements and passions of the lower planes. " Rashmi Uday Singh wrote in " Times of India " the following: " Medical studies prove that a vegetarian diet is easier to digest, provides a wider range of nutrients and imposes fewer burdens and impurities on the body. The vegetarian elephant and horse demolish any apprehension about veggies being mental or physical weaklings. Other muscular and intelligent animals ... the cow, giraffe, zebra, rhinoceros, the apes and more ... are vegetarians too. " " In a large measure, the destruction of ancient rain forests, loss of top soils and the consequent increase of water impurities have all been traced to the single fact of creating pasture lands for livestock being reared for meat. Millions of animals are bred for meat production. If they were not bred and the vegetation was used to feed people, there would be no poverty in the world. " " Everyone in the business : the on who abets, the one who cuts, the one who kills, the one who sells, the one who prepares, the one who eats ... all are killers ! " Sri Krishna " For fear of causing terror to living beings ... let the Bodhisatva who is disciplining himself to attain compassion refrain from eating flesh ! " Gautama Buddha " And the flesh of slain beasts in his body will become his own tomb. For I tell you truly, he who kills, kills himself, and who so eats the flesh of slain beasts, eats the body of death ! " Jesus Christ " God doesn't like the flesh and blood that you offer as sacrifice. He expects nothing but your absolute faith ! " Quran " People who eat meat are responsible for all the pain that grows out of meat-eating, and which is necessitated by the use of sentient animals as food ! " Annie Besant " It is both auspicious and peaceful for people to choose vegetarinism. " Albert Einstein " As long as there are slaughter houses, there will be battle fields. A vegetarian diet is the acid test of humanitarianism ! " Leo Tolstoy " The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. " Mahatma Gandhi " To feed on death is to become food for death. To live by other's pain is to become a prey for pain. So has decreed the omni-will. Know that and choose your course ! " Mikhail Naimy
