How I Journeyed towards Higher Knowledge


Embarking on a spiritual journey is a unique and personal experience for each individual. For me, it all began with the enchanting words of Linda Goodman and her book Star Signs, which introduced me to the captivating world of earth magic and celestial influences. As I delved deeper into the realm of spirituality, I encountered profound wisdom through the works of Lobsang Rampa and Richard Bach. However, it was the complete works of Swami Vivekananda that truly ignited the spark within me and set me on a path of self-discovery and seeking a true spiritual master. This is the story of how I was prepared to receive higher knowledge and ultimately found my way to Sahaja Yoga.

The Serendipitous Encounters:

Linda Goodman’s Star Signs served as my gateway into the realms of astrology and cosmic connections. Her discussions on physical immortality and soul mates fascinated me, igniting a thirst for knowledge and a yearning to explore the mysteries of the universe. As Linda Goodman had prophesied, my journey into higher science and spirituality led me to serendipitous encounters with enlightened individuals and enlightening books.

Among the significant authors I came across was Lobsang Rampa, whose writings delved into the realms of astral travel and the hidden dimensions of existence. His works sparked my curiosity and expanded my understanding of the unseen forces at play in the universe.

Another influential figure was Richard Bach, particularly his book “The Reluctant Messiah,” which offered insights into higher dimensions beyond our everyday perception. Through his narrative, I glimpsed the possibility of transcending the limitations of the physical realm and venturing into higher realms of consciousness.

The Awakening:

My earlier literary explorations were filled with adventures, mysteries, and tales of suspense, but it was Swami Vivekananda’s complete works that provided a profound shift in my perspective. His teachings emphasized the discovery of one’s true self and the pursuit of spiritual enlightenment. These words resonated with me deeply, and I realized that my purpose was to seek a genuine spiritual master who could guide me on this transformative journey.

Life’s Divine Timing:

As fate would have it, my father retired during this period, and our family relocated to our ancestral house in New Barrackpore, a tranquil suburban area. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect, as this change in environment provided the ideal setting for me to delve further into my spiritual development. Free from the distractions of worldly affairs, I could focus wholeheartedly on my quest for higher knowledge and self-realization.

The Final Destination:

After a decade of exploration, contemplation, and challenges, my spiritual journey reached its destination in 2002 when I discovered Sahaja Yoga. This transformative practice offered me the opportunity to experience the awakening of my dormant spiritual energy, known as Kundalini Shakti, and to connect with the divine within. It was through Sahaja Yoga that I found my true spiritual master – Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, and the guidance I had been seeking throughout my journey.


The path to higher knowledge is unique for each individual, and my own journey was a culmination of encounters with insightful books and spiritual teachings. From the enchanting words of Linda Goodman to the profound wisdom of Swami Vivekananda, each step along the way prepared me for the ultimate revelation of Sahaja Yoga. It is through this divine practice that I continue to deepen my understanding of spirituality and experience the blissful union with the universal energy that resides within all of us.
