What Is Transmission: Shri Kamlesh D Patel

In order to understand the concept of transmission, which is described in Sanskrit as pranahuti and in Urdu as tavajjoh, I would like to
 take a little detour to the subject of nutrition. To nourish our physical system, our body, we consume food. As far as possible, if it is a balanced diet it is great – vitamins, protein, fat, carbohydrates and fibre in a balanced state. That nourishes our physical body.
Then we go on to the second aspect of our existence: mental enrichment. How do we nourish that? You are all going through the process at the moment of enriching yourself mentally. And please don’t let it stop with the end of this degree. Let it continue, and don’t let it rust. Education should never be stopped till we die. Otherwise, as they say, “If you don’t use it, you lose it.”
And we also have a third body. The first body 
is the grosser body, the physical body, and we get nutrition from food. The second is mental, and that derives its nutrition through enrichment via our professors and what we do with their teaching. We assimilate it and later on make it more intense through our work, actualising it in our experience.
We also have a third entity we call the soul or the atma. Did you ever think about how we can enrich that soul? Is there any food for that? When a baby is hungry and eats something, without realising that it is food, if it satisfies the baby’s hunger he is happy. The baby does not need to say, “This is my food.” When you are thirsty, without knowing the name water, the water still quenches your thirst. And when we are so desperate for knowledge, it really does not matter from where we gather our knowledge, it just impresses our heart so much that we are lost in that knowledge. We are somehow in a state of joy when we learn something new.
It is similar with this inner being, the soul, though we do not know how it feels hungry or not. Through some process, somehow it is satisfied. It remains 
at peace, it derives immense calmness that it has never experienced before, and so then you can say, “Yes, something is all right. I am being fed.” That
 is what I call pranahuti. Pranas-ahuti is the sacrifice of someone’s soul for the enrichment of my soul. A yogi at the pinnacle of his sadhana or his evolution merges in the Ultimate. He derives the essence 
from the Ultimate and, after drawing it, he is able to transmit it. The people who receive it feel it, and that is what we offer to you.
Our body has its limitations at a genetic level – 
if you are going to grow to five feet five, you will only grow to five feet five, maybe five feet six if
 you keep on exercising. A five-footer cannot dream of becoming a six-footer. There are enormous limitations imposed at a physical level, restrained by the genes that we have inherited from our parents.
If you go to the next level, growth at the mental level, it is not as restricted. It is not genetic. If my father is a farmer, I have the possibility of becoming a PhD. A son or daughter of a rickshaw puller can still become a PhD but not all can become like Einstein. There is limitation there too, but there is greater flexibility than at a physical level.
Going to the spiritual realm, there are no limitations. The possibilities are infinite. You can go on expanding and growing infinitely in the spiritual field, because now you are merging with God. And if God is infinite and your merger is in the Infinite, your growth must be infinite. So there is a greater possibility through meditation.
I welcome you all to try it out. If you like it, continue with it. Once you like it, make it a commitment to yourself. It is not that you are going to satisfy your parents by sitting quietly with closed eyes and becoming a saint. You are not even here to satisfy God; you are here to satisfy your existence. The very purpose of existence is to excel in whatever you do. After many years of interaction within myself I have come to this fundamental conclusion that this life is given to us so that we excel in whatever we do. It is as simple as that.

[Excerpt from an address by Shri. Kamlesh D. Patel, President, Shri Ram Chandra Mission, to the students of Aurangabad Government College, 17th of March 2015, Aurangabad, Maharashtra, India]

  15. Food for the soul. Great. True. Can we feel transmission 24x7 even while carrying out our daily routine chores/ work ? Because that's a blissful state of existence. Kamlesh Bhai is a great yogi. Pranaams.....

  33. A wonderful article by Kamlesh-ji. It is written that transmission has the ability to enhance whatever it comes in contact with. Therefore, the vessel receiving it has to be clean and fit to give the desired result. This aspect can only be regulated by the Sadguru, with the necessary cooperation by the recipient through regular spiritual practice.

  34. As suggested, transmission is the essence of life energy, it depends upon the heart of seeker. The vaccum in the heart of seeker will decides the quality and quantity of transmission.

Transmission is a food and catalyst that enhances our meditation experience as well as gives fulfillment to our existence. Thanking the hierarchy deeply for considering us as fellow voyagers in this great journey.

  67. Though I have had the privilege of receiving transmission in a mass gathering from our beloved master,despite my regular practice,I have yet to feel the vibrations of transmission.I am depressed as to why I am unable to experience the same result which many abhyasis have had?What could be the possible reason?Do I lack something or rigorous cleaning is prerequisite?Please help me.Every week I go for sitting at my local preceptor' place.Harish Shukul-Vadodara.

    1. Master had clarified that one cannot feel transmission itself but only the effects of transmission. That is, when you feel the depth in meditation, the feeling that you are deep inside yourself, the feeling of calmness and silence and absorption are all the effects of transmission. Even another way of looking at it is, do not look for experiences but look for changes in yourself. If these changes and transformation in our being is observed, it is a clear sign of transmission entering our system and contributing to human transformation.

  73. I met my Master (Chariji ) on 21st November, 1991 after group satsang at brother Dahya Bhai nPatel's house at Ahmedabad when he met all the abhayasis having less than three month's practice.The transmission was so effective that vibrations immediately started in the heartand on asking one experienced brother it was told to me that it is Ajapa, which was later on confirmed from the book "Reality At Dawn"pages 55-57. Since than this 'Ajapa' has been expanded and vibrating in whole of body which is caiied 'Anhad Naad'.It specially keep on sounding at the Crown constantly, thus maintaining constant rememberance.I am really feeling blissful ,and there are so many happennings thereafter that i feel that my life was saved by someone miraculously.As regards change in habits, nature, attitude , improvement in health, increase in power of correct decision making and and all other such benefits are innumerable. I bow to the alliance of Masters' with my living Master for keeping on showering their grace on me through the living Master.
