The Universal Truth by Dr. Kaushik Chaudhary
The sixth chakra’s energy is utilized in intellect and in the action sense of facial expressions. In the Upanishads, intellect (buddhi) is also counted as a knowledge sense. The seventh chakra is a union point of the human body and outer nature. It has very low individual energy but it is like an apex of an inverted funnel wherein the energy of all the chakras is absorbed or synchronized into oneness. And this synchronization is responsible for the bliss that human beings feel during sex and during the peak of meditation. Now, let us see how these chakras provide energy to the senses and how the brain utilizes it.
Brain and Mind
Six thousand years ago, the Upanishads said this universe is made up of two basic things. The first one is force and the second is matter where both are inter-convertible. Now this exactly what modern science tells us through Einstein’s equation E=mc2. But from here, the description in the Upanishads penetrates deeper than the modern science. The Upanishads say that the unit made up by unifying all the forces of universe is called pran, which means ‘beating’ of energy’. And the unit made up by unifying all matter is akash, which means the sky.
Further, a question is asked in the Upanishads- What is then the one fundamental unit that unifies both the pran and the akash? And the answer is mahat (which means brain), which is also named in the Upanishads, as Chaturmukh Brahma (Brahma with four heads). So simply, the brain is the final unit which unifies both force and matter. Our brain is matter and it works using the pran (all the forces of the universe) as the beating of energy.
And the part of brain where the pran is active is called the mind. Thus, the mind is a part of the brain in which energy circulation, in terms of free electrons, is active. We have heard several times that a normal human being uses only 2 or 3 percent or 10 percent of his mind whereas Einstein and Vivekananda had used more than 10 percent of their minds. The more the brain is occupied by the pran (beating energy), the more the mind becomes developed and so the more you will be able to realize your existence. Everything is there in our brain. Our brain is a mini universe or a sketch of the universe. Everything that is there in the universe is here in our brain too. So, the more we unlock our brain as mind, the more we will know the universe. And the stage of 100 % unlocking of the brain is the achievement of our individual singularity. That is the goal of human life and we will see in the final chapters that how we can achieve it. So, Upanishads are the only scriptures in the world where a common word is used for the brain and the singularity before Big Bang. That word is ‘Chaturmukh Brahma’.
Before my spiritual realizations, I had always wondered how the ancient rishis of India had conceived such a highly evolved science in the Upanishads without any physical laboratories (such as CERN) or telescopes. But I realized their only weapon when I went through those realizations. And that weapon was the human brain. The rishis had achieved this great understanding that the human being is the final evolved form of universal energy and is the most efficient one. Whatever new invention we arrive at, it is not an invention, it is just a discovery. Each time we say we found the electron, discovered gravity or found Higgs boson, we actually forget that we did not discover anything outside of us. The electrons, gravity and Higgs bosons have always been present in nature. So what does it mean when we say we discovered something? Where did we discover it? Why are we calling it a discovery if it had always been there? We discover everything in our brain. Whenever any new thing gets unlocked in our brain, we say "I found it" or "I discovered it". Every scientific discovery of human history is done inside the human brain, not outside in nature. If that reality was not in our brain, we would never know it because when we know something, nothing extra is added to our brain. The brain remains the same. So we do not know a new thing, we somehow just unlock that thing in our brain. And the unlocking happens when the free electrons (pran) penetrate into a new area of the brain wherein the discovered part of the universe was configured between the brain cells.
Even if we see a new reality of nature with our eyes, we can neither understand it nor express it in words until our brain unlocks that reality in its mass. So actually, the ancient rishis utilized better weapon than the modern scientists. Today we use equipment in our labs which help us unlock our brain to a new level but because we utilize these equipments using our senses, we can understand that much only, which can be captured by our senses. And this is where the troubles of theatrical physics start. A huge portion of the truth is beyond the reach of our senses. And that is why physics talks to us in a panicky manner, through equations. If you ask a theatrical physicist how mass is formed, he would not be able to explain in terms of pictures or descriptions. He would show you a long equation of mathematical derivatives. After doing some calculations, he would come up with a new equation. And then he would tell you, "Look, mass is formed." This is exactly how he would answer some of your other questions too. I am not saying that the equations are wrong. I am saying that the equations already exist in our brain. When we got a solution in any mathematical equation, actually, our brain cells (neurons) gets connected in a particular design and makes a circuit. That circuit is called neuronet (we will understand it in detail in later chapters) and that neuronet is the solution for us in that mathematical equation. It was there in our brain but was not unlocked. So, if everything is locked in our brain, we can unlock it in terms of pictures too. And this is what a spiritual physicist (like the ancient rishis) does.
On the other hand, the ancient rishis had a different problem. They unlocked their brain by another mechanism, which we will discuss in the later chapters. The answers they got were in terms of the pictures they have seen in their brain (or mind). And these pictures were multi-dimensional. So then, it was difficult for them to express these pictures in terms of words and images in an outer ‘three-dimensional’ world. And that’s why the language of the Upanishads became more symbolical and mythological. This is why, later on in ancient India too, mathematics started to be evolved as an optional language. By 300 BC, Aryabhatta and other scholars had developed a higher level calculus and other mathematical derivatives.
But though, the language and approach was ancient. But when the western civilization took on that knowledge and started to utilize it in building their science, they had more logical language. The other hand, the science of Upanishads became underground gradually by the continuous invasions of foreign cultures in India. So, We can say that universe played a role to suppress the Upanishadic science for some centuries and let the western logical science to grow. And here we have to learn the lesson that whenever we will be misaligned in the path of truth, the universal energy will destroy or suppress our achievements of that wrong path and realign us. And this is the only message of this book too that our modern science is completely misaligned on the way of technologies. The current aim of our science is technologies and physical luxury of humans. The over dependency on mathematical descriptions will only can lead us to higher technologies but not to higher truth. The more the technology will increase, the human becomes slave of it and will lose its real potential. And I am completely assured that the universal energy will not let it to happen.
The right path is in the middle way of Upanishadic science and our present mathematical science. We have to create a cohere by uniting these two different approaches of exploring the truth. The Upanishadic science gives us the pictures from our brain and the modern science gives us the logical and scientific language to narrate those pictures. And this language was not there before 2000 years and that was the reason of the degradation of Upanishadic approach. So, with this book, I am doing that inception in 21st century where I will describe all the pictures of human brain, which are the pictures of this whole universe, in the language of modern science.
Though I must clarify that I do have not much knowledge of what exactly every sentence in the Upanishads says, I have found several similar descriptions in the Upanishad texts for my theory time to time. Also remember, Upanishads doesn’t mean a particular set of books. Upanishads mean ‘To sit near the truth’, the knowledge of what this existence is all about. Upanishads were written by the Indian rishis of different times. The rishis of different eras and generations added their knowledge and discoveries in the bunch of text and after a long passage of time that bunch of text was recognized as Upanishads, the part of Veda which was describing the truth of universe. Even after their formation and nomenclature, there was a freedom to add any new discovery about truth in those texts of Upanishads. So, we should not keep stitched to those ancient words of Upanishads because with every new evolution of languages, we will need a new description of truth. So, we should not stop that freedom to re-describe (not re-discover) the truth with the name of Upanishads. Off course, the scholars should check the text before adding them under the name of Upanishads. And I am giving that permission to check this book for its acceptance as the text of Upanishads. The day world will remove my name from this book and will add it in Upanishads, I will get my reward and also the salvation.
It is possible that physicists might find this theory a little distant from theatrical physics because it is derived from unlocking the brain beyond the senses. Einstein once said, "Imagination is more powerful than reality or equations." He had the same message to give with that quote. And that message was: Think beyond your senses and get those pictures from your brain. In this book, I try to provide those pictures in the language of modern science and I hope it will help humanity understand the singular science of our existence in a better way.
My intentions, through this book, are to help our hard-working physicists by directing their attention to a fact they have ignored completely. I want to tell a very simple thing. If humanity tries to know the world by avoiding the human itself, then any kind of success is hard to achieve. One has to include the human in all theories and combine the partitioned sciences. I am showing a path that brings all the partitioned sciences together in one continuous process of existence. It is a single uniform science, which gives all the answers about all the incidents that have taken place in this universe till today. I am trying to shift modern science’s direction towards this uniform science.
So our all thoughts, understanding and experiences happen through our mind. When we say our brain works, we actually mean the mind works. The rest of the brain is still untouched by the energy or forces (pran) which drive us. That energy is provided to the mind by the chakras. The mind is divided into four parts: manas, chitt, ahankar (ego) and buddhi (intellect).
1. Manas: This is the portion where the so-called brain centers of both knowledge and action senses are located. Actually these centers are the real senses because if they are damaged, our mind will not detect any stimulus from the outer senses. For example, if a brain center of the eye is damaged then one will not be able to see a picture in spite of having healthy eyes. These outer senses are just gateways. The brain centers are the ones that detect the objects sent from these gateways. So the manas detects the objects. It also receives the orders of action from the buddhi (intellect) at its action sense centers.
(Understand the three words ‘sense’, ‘subject’ and ‘object’. If eye is the sense, the ability to see is the subject and the thing the eye sees is the object. Hearing is the subject of the ears and the sound the ear hears is the object.)
2. Chitt: Chitt is the place in the mind where the records of senses are stored. Each sense has records of its corresponding objects such as voice, scenes, touch, smell and taste. After detecting the object, the manas sends it to the chitt asking what it is. For example, we can see a person only when the picture of that person built on the retina and that picture gets detected in the manas. Then the manas sends the picture to the chitt. The chitt checks whether this person has been seen before. If there is a record of that person’s picture, the chitt confirms this person as Mr. or Ms. X and sends this knowledge to the buddhi, the fourth part of the mind. The same happens in the case of sound, odor, taste or touch.
3. Ahankar (ego): Ahankar is the result of what our senses feel or receive. The eyes see that we differ from the others by our body. The ears can hear the voice that comes from someone else than our own self. The skin feels the touch of someone else other than ours. When the manas detects any of the above objects as a different thing than the self, the chitt creates a record of this distinction. The belief of distinction separates the human being from the rest of the world. This record of "I am different from the outer nature" is called the ego or ahankar. Every time, when the chitt relates the objects to the previous records, it confirms the belief of separateness (distinction) and passes it to the buddhi. This strengthens the ego. Thus ego covers all the three important parts of our conscious mind; manas, chitt and Buddhi (intellect).
4. Buddhi (intellect): Buddhi is the analyzing and decision-making part of the mind. The records of any object sent by the chitt, along with the record of ego, come to the buddhi which compares the records with all the previous records that the chitt had sent. Buddhi is the part that takes a decision to act and releases an order. This order comes back to one of the five centers of the manas, depending upon which action sense is being ordered. And then the manas sends the order to the corresponding action sense. This is how we react to any outer stimulus detected by our sense. But what happens in the case of an object for which the chitt has no records? When such a thing happens, it means the detected object (a person, sound or anything else) has not been seen or experienced before. In that case, the chitt directly transfers the question to the buddhi asking what the object is. The buddhi releases the question to the manas and the manas sends it to the action senses. Now,when the reply of that question is gained, it is detected by the manas and it becomes the first record about that object in the chitt. This is how we gain experiences of new things.
But what if we can’t get any answer from the outer side? In that case the question of "what is this object" moves in the mind constantly between the manas, the chitt and the buddhi as energy (free electrons). After some days or months, if the human being continues to think about it, the moving energy creates great pressure in the mind, which causes penetration of the free electrons in a new area of brain. And thus, it unlocks a new portion of the unused brain. This results in an answer to the question. This is what happens to scientists during their research, mathematicians when they are working on new equations, and to saints during their realizations. This was the mechanism Vedic rishis used to unlock their brain. They created pressure in their brains and obtained realizations in return. This happens when a person continues to think about the unsolved question. But if he throws away the question and concentrates on other objects, the energy (free electrons) regarding that question stops to move in the mind. So there will be no pressure in the brain and there will be no unlocking of the brain. There will be no answer.
When the universe came into existence, it was full of flashes of energy which then turned into hydrogen clouds. There was fire and gas everywhere in the universe. And after some time, in that burning balloon, a strange but powerful system arose. That was the human being. Why I call it a system is not a big surprise because minutes after reading this chapter, you will also call it the same.
We are beginning this great journey right here but in a filmy style. Before beginning the real journey, first let us know the greatest outcome of this journey. This outcome is the human being. It is the climax before the beginning. This chapter shows you the height of science where many things cannot be understood by clear logics because we cannot see the fundamental logical science behind it. We will inspect this complex structure of the human body in this chapter and then, from the next chapter, we will run through the journey of the universe to understand how this complex structure is built and why. It is an overview of the most complex entity of the universe, which is destined to be a trump card.
All we know is that the human body is made up of billions of cells, multi-cellular tissues and multi-tissue organs. Every cell has mitochondria that create energy through the adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP) molecules. Mitochondria are the power generators and the power is generated in every cell. Moreover, every cell of the body has an electric supply which is called the nerve supply.
There are two types of nerves in the human body – one is the sensory nerve that brings the message of any stimulus from any part of the body. There are five knowledge senses which receive the stimulus and send the message to the brain through the sensory nerves. These knowledge senses are: touch (skin), vision (eyes), hearing (ear), smell (nose) and taste (taste buds on the tongue). The second type of nerve is the motor nerve which takes the action message from the brain, in reply to the stimulus, and brings it to the six action senses. These six action senses are; expression (facial muscles), speaking (mouth), grasping (hands), movement (legs), procreation (penis/vagina) and discrimination (anus).
So when the human body gets any outer stimulus by their knowledge senses, the stimulus reaches the brain. The brain analyses it and releases an action message which travels through the motor nerves to the action senses. Now, this is fine and this is what an average science student knows. But the question is how does the brain analyze? We know that energy is produced in every cell of the body but how does that huge amount of energy be used without any centralization for its distribution. Without any centralized system, the heavy volume of energy produced in the billions of cells cannot be used in a regulated manner by the brain. So the body has a centralized system to distribute the energy produced in the different cells of the different parts. This system provides energy to the brain in a very systemic way for its functions of receiving stimulus, analyzing stimulus, and replying to it with action. The body’s centralized system is called the chakras. There are seven chakras in human body.
The body centralizes the energy coming from the cells of the various parts in seven different chakras. So these chakras first collect the total energy produced by the cells in the nearer region and then provide it to the brain for its function. These chakras cannot be detected clinically by any medical instrument because they are not a physical part of the body. They are the centers of energy working inside the living body. So you cannot locate them by doing a postmortem of a dead body. They are the human being’s eternal energy, the seven points in the body where all the energy of the nearer region gathers and then reaches the brain. They are like a centralized point of the nerve plexuses’ energy. The Vedas mention their exact locations and their specific names too. Each chakra is associated with a knowledge sense and an action sense to which energy is provided by it.
The first chakra is the muladhar chakra (root chakra) that lies between the genital organ and anus. The second is the swadhisthana (sacral chakra) situated above the pelvic region. The third is the manipura chakra (solar plexus chakra) situated at the umbilicus. The fourth is the anahata chakra or the heart chakra situated at the level of the heart. The fifth chakra is the visshuddhi chakra (throat chakra) situated at the center of the throat. The sixth chakra is the ajna chakra (third eye chakra) situated between the two eyebrows. And the seventh chakra is the sahashrara chakra (crown chakra) situated in the scalp, on top of the head. Each chakra is associated with one of the seven colors of the rainbow and one of the seven nodes of the music.
Every chakra rotates on its axis and generates waves of energy. Now, due to the gravitational force, the first chakra at the base of the sexual organ has more concentrated energy. And as we move upwards, the concentration of energy at each chakra decreases because the gravitational force would be decreased at a distance. So at the bottom most level when the first chakra’s concentrated energy rotates on its axis, it becomes condensed on a higher level and creates the element of solid Earth. Mind you, the element of Earth doesn’t mean it creates the sands and stones. Actually it means that the highly condensed energy at the first chakra reflects the character and property of solidarity. The second chakra’s concentrated energy makes the element of water, which is a less condensed form of energy than the solid. The third chakra’s energy makes the element of fire. The fourth’s chakra’s less concentrated energy makes the element of moving air and the fifth chakra’s minimally concentrated energy makes the element of sky, the space. These are the five basic elements or forms of nature in the way universal energy has manifested itself. These are called panch-mahabhuta in the Vedas.
Because these elements were already formed by nature before human’s formation, the human body is projected from these five basic elements of nature. Our body is made from these five elements and they play a key role in the body’s functioning. The Earth element keeps us grounded with the Earth at the first chakra. It gives us shape and resistance against nature. The sperms with Y chromosome are formed here (in Testes) as the blueprint of a male body structure. The female ovum is formed in ovaries, which comes under the influence of the water element of the second chakra. Water represents fluidity, fluctuation and feminine approach. So the female ovum can only produce X chromosome as a blueprint of the female body. The water element also controls the volume and need of water in our body. The urinary bladder is located in the area of the second chakra where all the bowel functions happen. The fire element of the third chakra represents the acidic secretion in the stomach to digest the food. The air element of the fourth chakra helps maintain the respiratory system by the lung. And the sky element of the fifth chakra helps provide the space for the vibration of the vocal fold. It provides a medium for voice to be produced and travel.
Now these elements coordinate the senses of our body. This coordination can only be felt during meditation. If you concentrate on the first chakra in your meditation, you will feel the Earth. And that time, if you try to discover which sense the Earth is connected to, you will realize it is smell. Yes, it can be felt during meditation when you are totally focused on your inner energy.
The sense of smell is related to the Earth element. This means the smell sense is being operated by the first chakra. In the same way, the sense of taste is related to water and is regulated by the second chakra. The sight sense is related to fire (light) and is being operated by the third chakra. The touch sense is related to moving air and is regulated by the fourth chakra. And the hearing sense is related to space (provides medium to voice) and is regulated by the fifth chakra. In the same way, each chakra regulates the action senses too. The action sense of discrimination (excretion and urination) is governed by the first chakra. The action sense of procreation (sex) is governed by the second chakra. The action sense of movement is regulated by the third chakra. And the action senses of grasping and speaking are regulated by the fourth and fifth chakras, respectively.
