Adhyaatmika Ramayanam

                           Adhyaatmika Ramayanam in brief:
Mala vikshepana Avarana Doshas:

Mala, Vikshepana
Due to tamoguna (-ve) causal body will have mala & vikshepana Doshas.

Due to rajoguna (neutral) causal body will have avarana dosha.

Dosha means faux pas or fault.

Tamoguna Doshaas:

Mala means soiled.  This fault comes due to ego.  This can be removed by practicing Nishkama karma yoga.  That is doing our duties without expecting the result.

Avarana dosha means the true configuration is camouflaged and shown as a different configuration.  Here the soul is made to appear as a limited one due to the effect of tamoguna.

Rajoguna Doshas:

Due to vikshepana dosha of rajoguna in Maya the whole creation is subjected to

1)  Arishadvargaas – kama (desire), krodha (anger), lobha (Greediness), moha (delusion), mada (Pride) & maatsarya (envy).
2)  Attachment (raga), Repulsion (dwesha), happiness (sukh) & misery (dukh).
3)  Selfishness, love affection, kindness, pleasure, Satisfaction, disSatisfaction etc.

Due to these mala, vikshepana, avarana doshaas the causal body will have:

1)  Attachment to body (dehavasana), kartritvam (I am doing), Bhoktritvam (I am to enjoy), eeshana trayam i.e., dhaneshana (attachment to material pleasure like owning land, money & vehicles etc; daareshana (this is my wife, I should Satisfy her at the cost of others) and putreshana (attachment to his progeny or offspring) and interest in fame.
2)  Attachment to reading of books and writing of books (shastra vaasana).
3)  Attachment to his environmental living (loka vaasana).

Due to the above, one will have

Ignorance (avidya), Asmita (fear or ego),Attachment (raga), repulsion (dwesha) and Body bound inclination and fear of death    (both are called abhinivesa.  These five things are called five miseries or pancha kleshaas.
Avarana means hiding power, vikshepana means expanding power.  Baalyam (Infancy) means undeveloped sudra state. Yavvanam (Youth) means developing  waisyaa state.  Kaumaram (middle age) means capable of ruling kshatriya state. Vaardhakyam (Old age)means  wisdom experienced of  Brahman  state.  With the gained wisdom one understands the emptiness of this physical world and hence tries for reunion of Atman with Brahman. 
Due to the influence of Tamoguna Karanashareera(Causal body) will have Mala and Avarana Doshas,and because of Rajoguna vikshepana Dosha.
When a Lantern chimney is painted by Black smoke then the burning wick cannot be visible. Likewise due to Maladosha the Paramatma within us becomes invisible.
We will mistake the rope as Snake due to superimposition of  darkness.  So Avarana dosha or fault occurs due to Tamoguna ignorance of unsteady mind. 
 Love and hatred, selfishness, love, affection, kindness, Happiness, Contentment, dissatisfaction, Kama, krodha, Lobha, Moha, Mada and Matsarya etc are the vikshepana doshas. This is due to ego.
Due to Mala, Avarana and Vikshepana doshas the Karana shareera will have 1) body attachment i.e., kartritwadoshas, 2)attachment towards Finance, Offspring, and spouse, fame mongerism, 3) interest in Sastras, and 4) worldly attachment.  Because of this man will have Asmita, Ragadwesha and Abhinivesa.
Asmita means Ego, Ragadwesaha means attraction and repulsion, Abhinivesha means attachment to his body. 
Sadhak, the Meditator confronts three steps during his Sadhana. They are 1)Adibhautika, Physical, 2) Adidaivika, Subtle, and 3) Adhyatmika, Spiritual.
1)Adibhautika, Physical: —Bodily pains etc.,
2) Adidaivika, Subtle: — Mind related problems like thoughts, sub thoughts etc.,
3) Adhyatmika, Spiritual: — Sadhana related problems like Sleep, lazyness etc.
These are called Mala, Aavarana and Vikshepana Doshas, faults.  Sadhak, Kriyayogi, seeing unity with Parabrahman, shall be cautious about these things. To make mind steady one has to annihilate these three faulty steps.

Sampragnata Samadhi= Doubt ridden         Asampragnaata Samadhi= Doubtless 
Savichaara sampragnaata
Savitarka or Saalokya sampragnaata
Saananda or Saameepya Sampragnaata
Sasmita or Saayujya Sampragnaata
Asampragnaata or Saaroopya
Savikalpa or Srashta

Mooladhara, Swadhistaana and Manipura Chakras are called Mundane Chakras. This field is called Kurukshetra. Man/Sadhak confined to this field does not do any good, spitual Sadhana and always self centered. This field is also called Brahma Granthi, a knot.
Manipura, Anahata and Visuddha, Chakras are called Mundane—Spiritual Chakras. This field is called Kurukshetra—Dharmakshetra. Sadhak confined to this field does have mixed mundane and  spiritual feelings. Even though  self centered he does think about spiritual Sadhana.  This field is also called Rudra Granthi, a second  knot.
Visuddha, Agna negative & Positive  and  SahasraraChakras are called Spiritual or Devine Chakras. This field is called Dharmakshetra. Sadhak confined to this field does only good, Spiritual Sadhana and always God centered. This field is also called Vishnu Granthi, a third and last  knot.

Ahalya was the wife of the Great sage (Rishi) Gautama, who is one amongst the Saptarishis. He is the author of Nyaya sastra, one of the six upangaas of Vedas. Gautama was preaching pure Gnaana/Spiritual knowledge to Ahalya. At the time of preaching the mind of  Ahalya was not steady. Her mind was turned towards worldly affairs. The reason for this disturbed mind was Indriyas/senses. The king of senses was Indra the mind. Finding her unsteady/not attentive  she has been warned by Gautama ‘na’ ‘halya’ i.e., not to move, be steady like a stone. That is the story of Gautama cursing Ahalya.  He also told his wife Ahalya to be in this state for a long time and do intensive KRIYAYOGA DHYANA. Spiritual knowledge can be gained only through intensive and long  KRIYAYOGA DHYANA with a one pointed steady mind. Unsteady mind can not grasp pure knowledge. Steadying the mind is Dhyana. In that state Ram i.e., the Cosmic energy will reach Mooladhara chakra and awaken the Kundalinee which was in sleeping state till that time. That is the psalm of life. The one who does not do meditation at all is equal to the animal with animal tendencies. Do the normal daily work. Then do sadhana also along with it. Enter the kingdom of God. Then continue the sadhana with intensity for a long time with steady and one pointed mind without neglecting your day to day Karma. Be one with God the almighty.
KUNDALINI: This kundalini is nothing but 3 ½ turns coiled serpent like sleeping outgoing life force in the anus with its hood or head beneath the  Mooladhara chakra or Coccy geal plexus and tail will be in up in the chakras.

 Adhyaatma Ramayanam:

Ayodhya means salvation. Dasarath is its king Parabrahma.   He had three wives. Kausalya—Wisdom power(Gnaanashakti), Sumitra—Action power(Kriyashakti), and Kaikeyi—will power(Ichchaashakti). Pure wisdom(Suddhabuddhi)—Sri Ram, is the son of Kausalya—Wisdom power(Gnaanashakti). I trait (Ahamtatwa)— Lakshman, Detatchment (Vairagya tatwa)—Satrughna, are the sons of Sumitra—Action power(Kriyashakti). Salvation inclined Sadhak (Mokshechcha)— Bharat, is the son of Kaikeyi—will power(Ichchaashakti).
Bharat, the son of Kaikeyi—will power(Ichchaashakti), is the Sadhak. Hence forth Bharat will be referred as Kriyayoga Sadhak. Sage Vassisht is the first Kriyayoga Guru. So the Suddhabuddhi Sri Ram and Ahamtatwa Lakshman are required to be handed over to another Kriya yoga Guru Sage/hermit Viswamitra Maharshi for further training. That is the inherent meaning of sending Suddhabuddhi along with Sri Viswamitra to protect his Yagna.
Here sadhak starts removing negative forces by killing Demon Tatak  in him. The pure wisdom(Suddhabuddhi) is being trained to become absolutely pure. So Avarana dosha surrounding the mind is being removed. Moolaadhara chakra is awakened. Mala vikshepana and Avarana doshas(faults) are required to be removed for merging with God the father. In this process Demon Maareecha (Vikshepana dosha) and Demon subaahu(Mala dosha) are to be removed with Suddhabuddhi. Moolaadhar represents will power(Ichchaashakti), Swaadhistaana represents action power (kriyaashakti) and Manipura represents wisdom power(Gnaanashakti).

Now  Guru Vishwamitra takes Suddhabuddhi to Mithila i.e., solitude as Suddhabuddhi requires some more training of further awakening Kundalinee power i.e., Sita.   On the way he bestows to Ahalya from the  deliverance of a curse. Ravan, the king of desires, also comes for the kundalinee awakening but abruptly discontinues and returns to Sri Lanka, the circuit of mundane existence(Samsaar), due to impatience. Desires always dissuades the Kriyayoga sadhak  from meditation and makes him to go back to Samsaar.
The pure intellect(Suddhabuddhi) of Saadhak  wanted to become absolutely pure. It  will try to tame the Kundalini, the daughter of Janaka. Janaka represents peace & tranquillity. Tamed kundalini will present peace & tranquillity.
The breaking of Sivadhanush(the bow of Lord Siva) represents the firm determination of the Suddhabuddhi of Sadhak to awaken Kundalini further. So  Suddhabuddhi marries Sita, the Kundalini power. Kundalini power  is individualized MAYA (Micro cosm). Vivaha means Marriage in Sanskrit. Vi=Vishista Vaaha= vehicle. In nutshell Vivaha means the great vehicle i.e., KRIYAYOGA SADHANA. So through intensified Kriyayoga Sadhana the sadhak wanted to tame Kundalini.  Lakshman marries Urmila(sleep), Bharat marries Maandavi (Kriyayoga Sadhana), Satrughna marries Shritakeerti (fame). Naturally the sadhak adopts Kriya yogasadhana so as to make his Suddhabuddhi to tame Kundalini, the individualized Maya. For this his Lakshman(Aham tatwa) i.e., I ness should adopt sleep. IF AHAM TATWA IN THE SADHAKA BECOMES PREDOMINANT THEN IT BECOMES AHAMKARA(EGO). Breaking of bow of Lord Vishnu taken from  PARSURAMJI represents intense Kriya yoga sadhana.  Encouraged by intense Kriya yoga sadhana the suddhabuddhi of saddhak becomes more purified. Here the sadhak crosses Rudragandhi  or in yoga parlance it is called Rudragandhi vichchedana. 
RAMAKRISHNA PARAMA HAMSA used to say Suddha buddhi Suddha manas(Pure mind) and Suddha Atma(pure soul) are all one and the same.
Crossing of all three Grandhis(read above note) i.e., Brahma grandhi, Rudra grandhi and Vishnu Grandhi are quintessential for abtaining Moksha. 
With his advise Paramatma wanted to give salvation/Moksha  to the Kriya yoga Sadhak. However he is not fully ripened to get salvation/Moksha. The sadhak is required to do Kriya yoga sadhana for 14 years with intensity and longer time.  In Tretayuga prevailing at that time, 14 years of  intense sadhana is required. Now in this ascending Dwapara yuga  12 years of  intense Kriyayoga sadhana and one year of intense sadhana in solitude is required to merge with the spirit. Provoked by Manthara (the one who bears the mind) pesters Paramaatma to bestow the two vows promised by him to Suddhabuddhi and Ahamtatwa. They are :1) 14 years years of  intense sadhana in solitude(Aranyavas) and followed by  2)Salvation or Pattaabhishekam or entering into the kingdom of  God to the Mumukshu/Sadhak   The role of Paramaatma is over. So he  retires.  Bharat means Sadhak wanted to do 14 years intense sadhana for the  absolute purification of intellect which will lead to Moksha.
Guh(Chitta—the sphere of thinking) the boatman helps suddhabuddhi, Ahamtatwa and Kundalinee  to cross river  Sarayu(the circuit of mundane existence—samsaar).  Until and unless the pure intellect becomes absolutely pure, the sadhak cannot attain Moksha. In this process getting absolute purification the suddhabuddhi is helped by the positive forces in him namely Sages Atri, Sarabhanga, Suteekshana and Agastya and the negative forces like demon Viraadh are also destroyed. Suddhabuddhi intensifies Sadhana by constructing a Parnasala(by sitting in proper posture) in Panchavati. This body is made of five Panchabhootas(ether, air, fire, water and earth). So it is called Panchavati.
In spite of doing sadhana the Maya induces the pure intellect to get seduced. So kaamavaasana i.e., lustful desires in the form of she demon Surpanakha takes birth. Because of contemplated intense sadhana the pure intellect as well as I-ness both will be dissuaded from the lustful desires. Not accepting the defeat easily the negative forces i.e., lustful desires will try to confront the pure intellect with a bang. So the two demon brothers viz.,Khara and Dooshana along with 14000 other negative forces will try to spoil the pure intellect(Suddhabuddhi). All are negated by pure intellect. That is the intention of Sita, Kundalinee or individualized Maya to provoke the pure intellect to get the Golden deer. That means when pure intellect is disturbed, the Kundalinee will be in the control of weakling I-ness(Lakshman). Being in the control of I-ness now, it sends I-ness to follow the disturbed pure intellect. Then automatically kundalinee will be encompassed by Ravan, the king of desires. In that process the morality(Jatayu bird)in him awakens and tries to dissuade the king of desires but in vain.
The disturbed pure intellect returns to normality and tries to set right its house. This steady pure intellect leads to meeting Hanuman. Hanu=to kill, man=mind. Hanuman  means steady mind this leads to meet Sugreeva, the king of Vanaras i.e., monkeys. Su= auspicious, Greeva= sound. Va=varishta(great), naraas=men. Sugreeva means the auspicious sound OMKAR.  Vanaras means positive forces. So the Sadhak shall hear the auspicious sound OMKAR due to the assistance of Positive forces accompanied by fixed mind within him. But so far the auspicious sound OMKAR is hindered due to Vali i.e., the fear within the Sadhak. With the fixed mind the fear/Bhayam  Vali in the sadhak is laid to rest.
After hearing the auspicious Om sound the fixed mind(Hanuman) contacts kundalinee lying underneath the Moolaadhar chakra. Moolaadhara chakra is on the south and Sahasraara chakra is on the north side of the Sadhak.
The fixed mind(Hanuman) informs the Kundalinee underneath the Mooladhara chakra of the sadhak about the impending coming of Suddhabuddhi i.e., the pure intellect becoming absolutely pure so as to attain the salvation. Salvation means the individualized Maya merging with God the father(Parabrahma).
The Manipura chakra is of red colour with 10 rays. So this is also called RAVANA CHAKRA. Then the kundalinee wanting to become completely awakened  cries for help calling “RAMA” loudly. Then Rama i.e.Suddhabuddhi   understands the trouble through Annahata chakra. This chakra is also called VAYU CHAKRA since it is the place of air element. Anjaneya is the son of Vayu. A gland viz., Thymus gland is responsible for immunization (roga nirodhaka sakti). Through this gland “RAM”  understands the obstruction in Manipura chakra with the help of Anjaneya. This whole procedure is done through VAGUS nerve. This is known as CHOODAAMANI. This is the reason that one should do pranayaama, if wanted to be healthy. 
Remember that Maya is part and parcel of God the Father.
The king of desires will put fire to the tail of Hanumanji  i.e., the fixed mind is to be made unsteady so that the attainment of  becoming one with Parabrahman of Sadhak can be weakened. The fixed mind puts off the fire i.e., nullify all the negative forces that are obstructing the noble ideal of Sadhak to become one with Parabrahman. 
Vibheeshan(Satwagun-positive virtuous quality) counsels the king of desires to hand over Sita-the kundalinee force-the individualized Maya to Sri Ramji-Suddhabuddhi(Pure intellect). That is complete awakening of Kundalinee. Angered by this i.e. the impatient king of desires-Ravan completely discards Satwagun and excommunicates that Satwagun. Suddhabuddhi gives shelter to Satwagun. The Satwagun will further strengthens the determination of Sadhak to attain Moksha. Here the AGNACHAKRA is awakened.
Now in the process of becoming absolutely pure , the pure intellect in the Sadhak  will make a bridge to reach SAHASRARACHAKRA for the attainment of complete and absolute bliss. This is called LANKA SETU/VARADHI.
Then there exists a final and ferocious conflict between Positive and negative forces within the Sadhak.
Hanumanji bringing Sanjeevani for Lakshmanji  to bring him back to consciousness amounts to the absolute fixed mind making  Ahamtatwa (I-ness) to become positively soulful and conscious for the attainment of Moksha.  Ahamtatwa (I-ness) getting completely nullifying is the victory of Lakshman over Indrajit. Indra=Senses, Jit=victorious. The Ahamtatwa (I-ness) destroys the traits of Indriyas/senses completely and becomes  absolutely  pure.
There are 72,000 subtle nadis existing in each and every human being. Three subtle nadis viz., Ida, pingala and sushumna are very very important for yogi.  In the centre of spinal cord exists sushumna nadi. On both sides of it exist ida/Chandra nadi (left) (-ve) & pingala/surya nadi (right) (+ve). 
The Manipurachakra near the navel contains 10 rays. Hence it is called RAVANAChakra. By doing pranayaama the obstructive force at Manipura (behind navel) is destroyed to pave the way for free flow of life force from Sahasrara. Man gains his health. If kundalinee life force is not passed through Sushumna then the Gnanashakti (the wisdome force) is destroyed. Again and again the man becomes egoistic and and becomes king of desires. That is symbolically shown as Ravan’s heads getting alive again and again even after they are axed.   Rama pierces the stomach of Ravan with advise of Vibheeshana(Satwaguna) and kills him.  This is what is called SRIRAMA destroying / cauterizing / drying the amritabhandam in the stomach of Ravana. Amrita (Nectar) Bhandam (Utensil). 

Obstructive forces are eternal like nectar to a normal man. 
Maya (Nature/SitaDevi) for ordinary man does not die.   Continuous prolonged &intensive Yoga sadhana is required for janmaraahitya/ Kriyaparavastha/ Moksha/complete liberation. Then only Nature dies for saadhaka.    To show that Nature does not die the Seeta Agni pravesa story is intended. Agni pravesa means to burn oneself in fire.  Fire brings out Seetaa(prakriti/ maya )   unscathed.  Sita is Ayonija.  Ayonija means Sita is not born out of ordinary yoni(vagina).   Sita i.e., Maya is fully subservient & under the control of Paramaatma. Only under the control of paramaatma only Maya works.
Saadhak’s pure intellect becomes absolutely pure. Now Sadhak is completely liberated. This is called Sri Ram Pattaabhishek.
