Spiritual effect depending on the Authors
When we did spiritual research into this topic, we divided all authors in four generic categories. The categories were:
Benefit of the book at the level of spiritual energy of the book
The first findings are related to the total effective spiritual energy in the book and we measured this with respect to the spiritual energy in the words themselves, in the sound of the words and the spiritual energy generated due to the effect of the author’s spiritual level on the words and their sound.
This table provides subtle readings that encompass all books in general depending on the type of author
In the column we have combined two categories of authors as they are similar with regards to their effect on the spiritual benefit of the book, i.e.
A spiritually average author of a book on a general topic
A spiritually average author of a spiritual book
Energy in the words (shabdashakti): As per the spiritual rule, ‘touch, taste, form, sound, smell and energy always co- exist’, each word carries with it its own spiritual energy. The total energy in the publication depends on the words used.
Energy in the sound (naadshakti): Again as per the above spiritual rule the sound also carries its own spiritual energy.
The process of gaining knowledge to write the book
Important note: We did not take a subtle reading of a book to represent this category as it is similar to the next column i.e. ‘A spiritually average author of a spiritual book’. In most of the cases where an average person is writing a spiritual book below the spiritual level of a Saint, he will be invariably be influenced by some entity. This could be a lower positive entity or he will be affected or possessed by a ghost (demon, devil, negative energy, etc.). Whatever the entity the likelihood of it being tainted by negative black energy is high. Sometimes ghosts may give right information but coat the knowledge with black energy.
In almost all cases where a fake Guru is writing a spiritual book, he will be invariably affected or possessed by a higher level ghost (demon, devil, negative energy, etc.) as he or she is a conduit to misleading seekers en masse.
A Saint at the spiritual level of 70% would be able to imbibe 30% of the Absolute Truth into His writing. A Saint at the 100% spiritual level would be able to imbibe 100% Absolute Truth. This is why we look at it as per the maximum possible Absolute Truth that is capable of being captured and disseminated in word form. Finally Absolute Truth can only be fully disseminated if one goes beyond the written word.
Subtle reading of the book on Spirituality written by a spiritually average person
The following is the subtle reading by Priyanka about what she saw in the spiritual dimension when she saw the book written by a spiritually average person.
The process of getting knowledge and writing of the book on Spirituality by a spiritually average person:
On average the following are the reasons why an average person is able to get thoughts to write a book.
This means that when a spiritually average person attempts to write a book on Spirituality, on average in 70% of the cases he will also be affected / influenced by negative energies or some minor good subtle energies.
When a spiritually average person writes a book on Spirituality, the author himself is lost in the Great Illusion or Maya. He has an active imagination to spice up the book and the plot etc. That is why there is very little sattviktaa. All this type of writing has predominantly the influence of thoughts of Maya or the Great Illusion. They think all the thoughts they have in writing the book is one big leap of the intellect.
Effect of reading a book on Spirituality written by a fake spiritual guide:
The following is what Priyanka saw in the spiritual dimension when she took a subtle reading of the book written by a fake spiritual guide.
The process of getting knowledge and writing of the book on Spirituality by a fake spiritual guide:
The spiritual level of fake spiritual guides is around just the 50% mark. Hence they have very limited knowledge and actual firsthand experience of Spirituality. Due some past birth or present birth spiritual practice they may have acquired spiritual level. However they also have an intense desire for fame and fortune. This is capitalised upon by higher level ghosts who possess them. The higher level ghosts provide the fake spiritual guide with their supernatural powers and talents. It is easier for higher level ghosts to get their negative spiritual work done through a person at a higher spiritual level but who has ego. This in turn woos the average person and gives the fake spiritual guide a big following. The spiritually average person would not be able to perceive the difference between real spiritual guides and fake spiritual guides.
Both these factors result in them having high ego like a spiritually average person. Because of this ego and their siddhis and their mass following, it becomes easy and conducive for subtle sorcerers (maantriks) to have control over them and act through them. In fact it is the maantrik only who gets every action done through them and the fake guide is a puppet in the maantrik’s hand.
This black cloud represents the interference by maantriks in the thoughts coming from God at the unmanifest principle level itself. Because of the high ego in fake spiritual guides or Saints they do not get any help from God. As the source of the knowledge is from subtle sorcerers the knowledge is coated in subtle black energy. So even before a fake Spiritual Guide or Saint begins to write anything, black energy is spread around him because of the source of the knowledge and the subtle sorcerers (maantriks) possessing them. When a person reads the book written by a fake spiritual guide he too is affected by this black energy. Unfortunately the average person does not have the subtle ability to understand that he is being affected by this black energy. The average reader would read purely at a psychological level and hence be attracted to the fancy writing and sometimes end up being loyal to the teachings in the book and any further books by the fake spiritual guide.
In fact when 5 seekers were asked to visit this author’s website and take a subtle reading, the seekers had experiences of nausea, headache, not feeling like looking at the author’s picture. Also the colour black was liberally used in the website and his product lines. Black is actually a colour that is highly taamasik and is the colour of choice of ghosts for transmitting black energy.
Effect of reading a book on Spirituality written by a Saint:
Saints have the capacity to access divine knowledge from the Universal Mind and Intellect on the basis of their spiritual practice (saadhanaa) itself. They convey this knowledge to the average person through books. Saints do not have any worldly perspective behind writing a book on the knowledge that they have attained like attaining fame or earning money. Also they do not have the doership that Their book will change the world. They do so as Their spiritual practice as per God’s wish and because of Their spiritual love for humanity. This is so that people who want to progress spiritually have a roadmap for their spiritual practice so as to attain the final goal of God-realisation. Saints write books based on the basic spiritual purpose of life, i.e. to complete one’s destiny and attain God realisation. This is their only objective. All proceeds from books sold are used to help people grow spiritually. Thus they are in total alignment with God’s objective. Their books are never about how to succeed in the Great Illusion (Maayaa) but rather how to transcend one’s attachment to it.
As a result of this books by Saints are only popular with seekers of God. They never become best sellers.
The process of getting knowledge and the writing of the book on Spirituality by a Saint:
When books are written by Saints everything that is written is Their own firsthand spiritual experience. As they write from personal experience, i.e. they have gone to that evolved state of feeling Bliss or Serenity – that is why there is a lot of unmanifest Divine Consciousness (Chaitanya) in it. So when they use a spiritual term it is not just an intellectual exercise but something that they have experienced. Now from such a book Divine Consciousness is transmitted and there is Divine Resolve (Sankalp) and hence one experiences serenity while reading it. True Saints don’t need a medium like a subtle entity to get information.
The reader benefits at a spiritual level from the knowledge from the perspective of attaining his basic spiritual purpose in life. Spiritual healing also happens when reading books authored or compiled by Saints.
Books on Spirituality are always targeted by negative energy when they are being written. The author’s thoughts are invariably influenced by subtle energies. If the author does not have a strong basis of spiritual practice he cannot fend off negative energies influencing the thought process. In fact he would not even know he was being influenced.
Authors of a lower spiritual level due to their ego and desire for fame act as beacon’s for ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies etc.) to act through them.
God does not help authors who do not do spiritual practice from God-realisation perspective. Nor do spiritually evolved beings in the subtle help as they are guided by God’s wish. So what is left are negative energies from the spiritual dimension that have a field day with authors of a lower spiritual level.
Unfortunately it is the readers that bear the brunt. Books written by people of a lower spiritual level and by fake Spiritual Guides/Saints basically lead the readers in getting more entrapped in worldly attachments and Maya. Along with this they also emit black energy which results in long-term problems for the reader.
Only books written by Saints and Gurus are beneficial for our spiritual growth. These are the only books that stand the test of time through the millennia. Please refer to article on 'Who is a Saint' and 'Who is a Guru'.
