Lemurian Scrolls



SATGURU SIVAYA SUBRAMUNIYASWAMI HAD A UNIQUE APPROACH TO ACQUIRING KNOWLEDGE. WHEREAS MOST PEOPLE WOULD LOOK FOR ANSWERS IN BOOKS WRITTEN BY OTHERS, HE WOULD SIMPLY LOOK WITHIN HIMSELF BY TAPPING his superconscious or intuitive mind. An interesting example of this occurred in 1968. Gurudeva was leading a travel-study program in Ascona, Switzerland, with a group of thirty-two students. He was teaching them the inside of themselves experienced in meditation and found it challenging to find precise enough words to describe these subtle and profound states of consciousness. Gurudeva solved the problem by bringing forth from within his intuitive mind a new language, called Shūm. He heard the words, saw the script and knew the meanings of this language that came forth from deep within the superconscious. ¶This book, Lemurian Scrolls, is another example of how Gurudeva explored the inner mind for answers. In 1970, he had three monasteries in the United States with some thirty-five young monks within them. Gurudeva was in need of traditional principles to effectively guide and govern the monasteries, provide a traditional Hindu monastic life to the monastics and catalyze their spiritual unfoldment. Instead of trying to acquire books from India on the subject, Gurudeva turned within for the knowledge. His guru, Yogaswami of Jaffna, Sri Lanka, spoke of this process when he said, “The book is within you. Turn over the leaves and study.” In the ākāśic library Gurudeva found the knowledge he was seeking, and much more as well—knowledge of mankind’s journey to Earth from the Pleaides and other planets in the pursuit of unfolding into the ultimate attainment, realization of the Self within, information about ancient Lemuria and its spiritual culture, the vast cycles of time governing periods of spiritual awakening and spiritual darkness on this planet and the relationship between the galaxy’s Central Sun, man’s conciousness and the kuṇḍalinī force. The monks were, of course, quite amazed by and enthralled with this mystic information. They adapted their life to this wisdom, and even today the ideals and principles you will encounter herein are an integral part of each monk’s daily life. §
