The world is today raving and ranting for peace. Neighborhoods, villages, cities, individuals, nations, politicians are all crying for peace. But how, where to obtain peace is unknown. The modern man opines that earning a great deal, being steeped in material pursuits, living in a palatial mansion or bunglows etc. will confer peace. Material peace is transitory because this peace is derived from the satisfaction accruing from a particular object and all these stem from the kinetic mind paling into insignificance soon. This peace is impermanent. Thus peace stemming from kinetic mind is ephemeral. What is the utility of getting peace which is impermanent? Then cannot we obtain permanent peace? Have we endeavoured to make the quest for permanent peace? When impermanent peace exists then surely permanent peace also exists. But how to obtain that permanent peace?
Man is impermanent as a result how is permanent peace possible for the mortal man? Apparently man seems to be impermanent but essentially he is permanent, because the present existence of man is not the first and the last. A man’s existence depends on several past births, present birth and several future births. Not only this, peace is imperative in all the births. In this manner the peace of all the births is classified as eternal peace.
How to derive this eternal peace? To obtain this impermanent man has to become permanent. Ceasing the Kinetic state of Prana or Atma the Still State has to be arrived at. Practising Pranakarmalike action excellently, gradually the kinetic mind will attain stillness. This Still state is Kriya’s transcendental state. This state of bliss which accrues remaining in Kriya’s transcendental state is indestructible. Remaining in the state of incomparable bliss or else in Prana’s Still State if one departs, Prana can never attain Kineticism, in other words Prana in no manner can never gain Kineticism. Non-Peace can never affect him. This is the state which will confer total non-kineticism, thereby enabling man to attain eternal peace. For this reason it is imperative for one and all to practise Kriya in an excellent manner and attain Kriya’s transcendental state.
