Parabrahm Mission

God realisation has been represented as a very


difcult and complicated endeavour, so people are
always hesitant and passively resist to venture on the
path to realise Him. But with the help of a capable
guide, the mighty task to realise Him becomes possible
in this very lifetime. With the 40 years of spiritual
practice and reaching the pinnacle of spiritual ladder,
Pujya Shri Dr. S. Somasekhar (fondly addressed as
Appaji), founded Parabrahm Mission, in the year 2014
with the objective of extending His spiritual guidance
to the human society and its populace at large to realize
the purpose of human life, to understand the ways of
achieving such purpose through simple yet profound
methods and processes and thereby enrich ones life
with inner contentment, now and ever after.
The mission is involved in educating the aspiring
individuals, the real cause of individual distress and
sufferings and guides them to counter such afictions
through self-realization. The participants are guided to
understand the purpose of life and realise it internally
by connecting to the inner self. By following the

5
practice of Divine Meditation, Cleansing of mind, and
developing internal absorption as per the teachings of
the mission, one is trained to regulate the mind,
maintain inner purity and develop the divine attitude
and approach in life to become one with God.
'Parabrahm Mission' is the platform for seekers
to become divinized beings through total
transformation of self and grow into becoming the
embodiment of love and eventually become universal
lovers. Parabrahm Mission is a family of such seekers
that are progressing to reach God at ever faster pace
under the loving guidance and care of Appaji. Thus
having Appaji as the role model, under the umbrella of
Parabrahm Mission, it is possible to lose individual
identity and become one with the Creator in this very
life.

Samartha Guru
Pujya Dr. S. Somasekhar

Supremely divine and serene being, Dr. S.


Somasekhar, affectionately known as Appaji, was born
on 12th June 1944 in Malagalali Village, Mandya
District, Karnataka. Right from an early age, He had
an insatiable thirst to know God. This inspired Him to
refer to numerous religious books and scriptures
including the Bhagvad Gita, which convinced Him
that His earnest search to seek God can be fullled
only through Meditation. After years of search for a
capable Guru who could guide Him on the right path
of meditation, He came in connect with Shri Ram
Chandraji Maharaj of Shahjahanpur, lovingly
addressed as Babuji Maharaj, in 1974. Babuji
Maharajs spiritual wealth was unparalleled and just by
looking at his photo, Appaji found Himself becoming
increasingly restless, with the afrmation that He has
found the Master, who could give Him direct
experience of God that He was seeking so earnestly
for many years. His spiritual journey had begun,
having learnt the path, He started intense sadhana,
with constant self-purication and aspiration to

7
achieve total internal absorption. With the demise of
Babuji Maharaj in 1983, his spiritual successor Chariji
guided Appaji further in His quest. His soul journey
progressed in leaps and bounds bringing Him closer
and closer to the door of Almighty. He reached
Sahyujya (a level where soul begins to unite with God)
in 2011. This was an unconquerable spiritual
achievement by Appaji which nobody had reached.
At the same time, divine plan was unfolding with
far-reaching consequences. He was being prepared for
th e m a g n a n i m o u s ta sk th a t l ay a h ea d f o r
transformation of mankind and making this world
spiritualized. Guided by the inner command of God,
He founded Parabrahm Mission in 2014. Through this
Mission, Appaji intends to enlighten the hearts and
minds of the people and practically guide them to
identify & achieve the purpose of life.
Appaji is a retired General Surgeon, of the cadre
of District Surgeon, Government of Karnataka. He
has served thousands of patients during his service
and all through has witnessed intense sufferings and
agony of the masses, struggling to meet the ends. He
always brought awareness in them regarding the
purpose of life and guided the way to overcome the

8
sufferings by meditation and realizing the Self. Appaji
has dealt with every situation in life with His
unconditional love for the creation, and it is with this
pure love that He has conquered and transformed the
hearts of people. Whoever appears before His
presence, feels their mind peacefully resting in God.
Appaji transforms the sincere seeker into an
enlightened being. He triggers an inner connection
that becomes the foundation for inner transformation
that eventually conquers the lower self and furthers its
dissolution in the higher Self which is the ultimate goal
of human life.
A Self-absorbed being, Appaji, although
surrounded by material afuences, one nds Him
seldom attached to it. Never before had the secret
been made available to all, of the innite journey to
become one with the Source. In this modern world,
wherein people are whirling around materiality,
enshrouded in ignorance, Appaji, with absolute purity
and childlike innocence having become one with the
Source by losing the soul identity, is the torch bearer
carrying the light of divinity that would illuminate the
whole world.

Sadhana

A. Daily Practice
When you get up in the morning think that I am
saint. Have this feeling whenever possible throughout
the day.
[There is natures law that as you think, so you become. Thus
when we give positive suggestion to mind that I am a saint, we
shall start developing saintly qualities like love, empathy... We
grow to become devoid of negativity, and become true to
conscience.]

10
B. Prayer

O Parabrahm,

The real purpose of human life is, to get our soul


dissolved in your pure ocean of bliss.
But the samskaras are blocking the journey of the
soul to reach you.
You are the only almighty God to remove the
obstacles on the path of spiritual progress.
We humbly pray you to carry our soul to your
existence.

The prayer is addressed to the Creator, and should be


done with the supplement mood, in the state of inner
absorption. It is the call of our heart to the creator
saying, O Supreme Master, the real purpose of human
life, is to see that our individual soul that has come
from Him at the time of creation, goes back to Him,
which is its real abode. But to reach Him, the hurdles
are our samskaras covering the soul, that we have
accumulated by our thoughts and actions over various
lives. These coverings have to be emptied and

11
removed. It is only possible by the sadhana, and Will
power of the capable Master. Further, we are
expressing our inability to progress on the spiritual
journey because of the samskaras that are holding the
soul back. Thus with the attitude of total surrender
and dependence, accepting that the obstacles on our
journey can be removed only with His grace, we
humbly ask Him, to take us to His Existence.
[When this prayer is addressed with total devotion and
love, in the state of surrender it reaches Him, and His blessings
will be on us, and His grace will reach us, carrying us on the
journey to become one with Him.
This prayer is done before starting the morning meditation
and before the meditation sessions and before going to bed.]

12
C. Meditation

Start the day with heartfelt prayer connecting


yourself to the Parabrahm followed by meditation. Sit
in a comfortable posture and take the attention
inwards to the heart. With an attitude of love and
devotion, think that there is divinity in the heart. If
mind gets diverted in thoughts, gently bring it back to
the heart without forcing the mind to concentrate. Try
to be in the meditative state as long as possible, atleast
for half an hour in the beginning.
Practice taking the attention inwards to the heart
whenever possible during the day even if you get one
minute of free time. This helps to regulate the mind and
develop inner dependence leading to constant
remembrance of divinity. It also helps in reducing
negative thoughts and tendencies.
[Real Meditation is when mind stays near the soul.
Heart is the seat of soul, and soul is the spark of Creator.
When we take our attention towards heart having the idea of
divinity, we will be in the state of Real Meditation. Also, where
the attention goes, energy follows and where the energy goes,
manifestation starts. This is one of the laws of Nature. Thus
13
during meditation, when the attention goes to the soul, yogic
transmission (divine energy and food for the soul) will start
owing towards it. When soul receives yogic transmission, the
consciousness starts expanding and the soul journey begins.]

D. Work like God

In meditative state, without being conscious of


the work, think and feel that I am a central sun and love is
owing from my heart to the entire creation. Have this feeling
whenever possible.

14
E. Cleaning

Visualize divine white light from the cosmos


entering the body through Brahmarandra (point in the
crown of the head). Feel that this light is pushing down
the impressions created during the day as well as
negativity and impurities of entire mind and body,
below to the ground and earthen it 100 feet into the
ground (visualize the white light passing through the
body slowly from top to bottom, making its way by
pushing the impressions, negativity, impurities
downwards). Then, feel that the white light lls the
entire mind and body making them lighter and divine.
[Cleaning is the method of grounding the impressions,
negativity, impurities from the mind and body. In this technique,
there is a constant activity of mind, where will power is used to
cleanse the mind and body by constant ow of thought.]

15

Divine Dictum
Ones approach and attitude to clear the blocks on the

expecting the fruit of action.

leads to prejudice.

thoughts enhances the negativity of mind that
blocks the spiritual progress.
I am not - Negate the lower self, self centeredness,
me and mine, since pride destroys devotion.

knowledge of the destination and the journey helps
in understanding the goal and also motivates to
reach the goal at the earliest.
Bhakti yoga - Path of intense devotion for God,
wherein His presence lls the entire existence of
the Bhakta.
Raja yoga - Mind is the king, the path to regulation
of mind is Rajayoga, and only regulated mind can
help on the journey of the soul to reach Him
Guru yoga - All the paths to reach Him are
illuminated and made to traverse by the Guru.
Guru yoga is the supreme yoga, wherein the path
itself becomes the destination.
