Karma - The Mechanism ► Preliminaries ► The Tattvarthasutra

Posted: 28.07.2014

Karma - The Mechanism presents three chapters of an ancient Indian manuscript - the Tattvarthasutra - whose origins reach back in time before recorded history. The Tattvarthasutra describes in concentrated form one of the oldest, if not the oldest philosophy of the world.

The work introduces a refreshingly new, unconventional view of purpose and functioning of our consciousness that far surpasses all Western, matter-oriented concepts. It identifies the mechanisms that make us really experience this world. It alerts us to channels through which to perceive and access it we are unaware of. It hands us a radically alternative model - a second opinion - of our universe that does not see us as separate from it, but as its very center, - just as we experience it in everyday life. It allows us to see life not as an infinite mass of disjointed events we feel unconnected to, but empowers us to steer every event that concerns us in an innovative, highly effective way.

Far from being a theoretical treatise, the work accompanies its advice with easily applicable, practical methods how to systematically access higher dimensions of our life.

The knowledge is part of the Jaina Canon that is customarily counted as one of the major religions of the world. Yet in essence this label is wrong. The Tattvarthasutra has no intention to teach mankind respect before real or imaginary (one or many) gods, nor to pray in any form for divine blessing. It also does not want to convert all and everyone into blind-believing devotees to let their lives revolve around some luminous spiritual magnet.

The Tattvarthasutra describes nothing other than a method, an instrument how to unfold hidden abilities of exceptional magnitude we all carry within. These abilities open up such breathtaking depth and broadness of knowledge, love, energy and the experience of happiness Western culture has no concept to match.

The Tattvarthasutra contains a practical key that systematically expands our understanding and triggers experiences of superior states of consciousness. This key is not shrouded in obscure language nor does it demand the application of mystic techniques, it simply interprets life from a new angle. Yet this new angle enables us to arrange the components of our daily life in such a way that our consciousness automatically shifts into new modes of operation.

This method leads to total independence. It unfolds abilities generally attributed only to supernatural beings. We achieve this not by fickle divine sanction or by surrendering to a guru. The method of the Tattvarthasutra causes - only in step with our own efforts - the gradual dissolution of obstructions that limit our consciousness. In growing self-deter­mi­nation we then recognize our own personal path with ever increasing clarity. The Tattvarthasutra describes exactly how this is achieved.
