Scheme for Studying the Structure of the Absolute

Sattva of Spring (introduction to film)

Sattva of Spring
(introduction to film)

Peace to you, friends!

Now we are going to saturate you with subtle beauty!

What for? The point is that this is one of the most important methods of spiritual work.

From the evolutionary standpoint everyone starts their personal history in paradise. It will be more clear if you study the scheme for studying the structure of the Absolute*. Souls get formed and start developing in paradise. They are not human souls yet; they are germs of human souls that go through the initial stages of their evolution in vegetal and then in animal bodies.

But having reached after many such incarnations the possibility to become humans, we, for some reason, begin to develop attachments to material objects and grow egocentrism in ourselves. It gets manifested as arrogance, contemptuous attitude towards other living beings, and so on.

Since it is impossible to satisfy completely the vicious desires of possessing the objects of our longing, it provokes in us persistent negative emotions and results in formation of such qualities as irritation, angriness, jealousy, touchiness, and so on.

In this way most of people lose paradise…

… And souls living in paradise are those who accustomed themselves to pure, subtle, loving, tender states of consciousness.

And hell is the destiny of coarse people, who got used to living during their life in the physical body in coarse emotional states.

The paradisiacal states are called sometimes sattvic, the hellish states — tamasic, and the intermediate — rajasic.

So, to come back to paradise — once we come to know about these laws — we have to master psychical self-regulation with the purpose of rooting out all coarse states in ourselves and cultivating subtle states by all means.

More details about the most efficient methods of psychical self-regulation can be found in our books. And now — one of the most important methods of psychical self-regulation — attunement to the Beautiful!

We find the beautiful, first of all, in living nature.

… Moreover, it is possible to cognize God in the aspect of the Creator only from sattva — from the paradisiacal state of the soul.

The Creator is the most subtle part of the Universal Consciousness!

And sattva is the closest to the Divinity state of the soul!

God is really cognizable for people who follow this knowledge!

And He is indeed incognizable for those existing in the gunas tamas and rajas!

… And another very important point — God is Love! And one can approach Him only through cultivating in oneself the emotions of love — first for the sattvic beings and phenomena, and then for Him, for God.

So, let us begin immersing into sattva by attuning to it, merging with it, becoming it!…
