Multi-dimensional Existence



I express my heartfelt gratitude to our esteemed guide, Sri Ravindra Madhudi, whose wisdom, blessed by the divine Shri Sainath Maharaj of Shirdi, has illuminated my spiritual path.


Sri Ravindra Madhudi, affectionately known as Bhayya, has always emphasized the profound impact of steadfast spiritual practice, or sadhana, on personal growth. He suggests that with unwavering dedication to sadhana, one may catalyze more rapid transformations, potentially influencing the human DNA in ways science is only beginning to comprehend.


From a scientific perspective, the human genome is subject to variations based on several factors:

  1. Mutation Rates: Our genomes undergo mutations throughout our lives, accumulating an estimated 100 new mutations per person. These random changes, which can occur anywhere in our DNA, don't always result in noticeable alterations or inheritance.

  2. Evolutionary Mechanisms: Genetic variations that offer survival or reproductive benefits may become more prevalent through natural selection, while others may propagate via genetic drift, a stochastic process affecting trait prevalence in populations over numerous generations.

  3. Demographics and Gene Flow: The dynamics of population size and gene exchange among groups significantly impact genetic variability. Smaller populations might see swifter genetic drift, whereas gene flow can introduce fresh variations across communities.

  4. Evolutionary Timeline: Profound genomic developments, like those birthing new characteristics or adaptations, unfold over extensive evolutionary periods—spanning thousands to millions of years—as evidenced by pivotal changes in our ancestors.

  5. Contemporary Evolution: In recent history, the human genome has continued to evolve at a more gradual pace, with modifications influenced by dietary habits, disease resistance, and additional environmental elements.

  6. Modern Influences: Present-day technological advancements and environmental shifts could potentially sway the pace of genetic evolution, impacting evolutionary pressures.

In essence, while the human genome is in a state of constant flux, the rate and magnitude of change are contingent upon a myriad of factors. Evolutionary developments typically require vast epochs, although minor genetic shifts may manifest over relatively brief intervals.


Bhayya suggests this evolutionary developments is augmented by consistent spirtual sadhana


Multi-dimensional living


The concept of multidimensional living can be interpreted in various ways depending on the context in which it is discussed. In spiritual and metaphysical contexts, multidimensional living refers to the idea that beyond our physical existence in the three-dimensional world, there are additional dimensions of reality that can be experienced or accessed through spiritual practice, meditation, or heightened states of consciousness. It is a concept often explored in spirituality, esoteric philosophy, and some areas of quantum physics.


From a spiritual perspective, multidimensional living involves expanding one's consciousness to become aware of and possibly interact with these other dimensions. This could mean having experiences or perceptions that go beyond the standard sensory experiences associated with the physical world. Practitioners might describe this as accessing higher dimensions of consciousness, experiencing unity with the cosmos, or having transcendent spiritual experiences.


In metaphysical teachings, it is sometimes suggested that these dimensions are layers of reality where different rules apply, and where one can encounter spiritual beings or energies that are not normally perceptible. This belief is often associated with the practice of meditation, energy work, or other spiritual practices that aim to transcend ordinary reality.


In the realm of physics, while the concept is far more theoretical and not related to spiritual experiences, some theories such as "string theory" propose the existence of more than the four dimensions we experience (three spatial dimensions and one temporal dimension). However, these scientific discussions about additional dimensions are mathematical and theoretical constructs that do not imply the kind of personal or spiritual experiences described in metaphysical practices.


Multidimensional living in a more grounded, psychological or self-help context might also refer to living a life that is rich and varied — engaging with life on multiple levels such as intellectual, emotional, social, and spiritual.


Each of these interpretations of multidimensional living offers a different pathway for exploring the concept, whether through spiritual practice, scientific inquiry, or personal development.


Personal experiences and Bhayya's explanation


In my personal spiritual experiences, particularly during deep meditative states known as "Sushupta," I've encountered the sensation of existing beyond the physical realm, "Sthoola Sharira," perceiving myself in multiple dimensions as a mere observer.


Seeking clarity on these experiences, Bhayya generously shed light on the concept of multidimensional consciousness, outlining its phases:


  1. Awareness: Yogis and Yoginis are first introduced to the reality of a multidimensional universe.

  2. Witnessing: Upon this realization, the practitioner becomes an observer, or "Sakshi," within this broader existence.

  3. Influence: As one advances in sadhana, the ability to shape or alter realities, influenced by one's accumulated impressions or "Samskaras," emerges.



Bhayya stresses the importance of a Guru's guidance during this advanced stage to maintain focus and not lose one's spiritual course.


The significance of multidimensional existence, as explained by Bhayya, lies in harnessing the insights gained for personal development and altruistic endeavors.


He references the vastness of our universe, comprising approximately 108 dimensions, with deities like Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu operating across these planes in their Yoga sadhana and Ananta Sesha Sayana states.


On the terrestrial sphere, humans have the potential to navigate through 11 dimensions, a concept symbolically represented by the ten heads of the Demon King Ravana, who operated in 10 of these 11 dimensions.


For the devoted followers of Saipanth, ignorance is not bliss; rather, it's imperative to be steadfast in one's sadhana, purging the impediments that obscure our authentic selves.


In sharing these teachings, I extend Bhayya's wisdom, hoping to inspire others on their spiritual journeys.
