“God-realisation, or siddhi means Self-realization in the highest sense of the term. One consciously realises his oneness with the Supreme. As long as the seeker remains in ignorance, he will feel that the Supreme is someone else who has infinite Power, while he, the seeker or devotee, is the feeblest person on earth. But the moment he realises the Supreme, he comes to know that he and the Supreme (God) are absolutely one in both the inner and the outer life. God-realisation means one's identification with one's absolute Highest Self. When one can identify with one's highest Self and remain in that consciousness forever, when one can reveal and manifest it at one's own command, that is God-realisation", that is Self-realization.

Foreword
“God-realisation, or
siddhi
means Self-realization in the highest sense of theterm. One consciously realises his oneness with the Supreme. As long as theseeker remains in ignorance, he will feel that the Supreme is someone else whohas infinite Power, while he, the seeker or devotee, is the feeblest person onearth. But the moment he realises the Supreme, he comes to know that he andthe Supreme (God) are absolutely one in both the inner and the outer life. God-realisation means one's identification with one's absolute Highest Self. Whenone can identify with one's highest Self and remain in that consciousnessforever, when one can reveal and manifest it at one's own command, that is God-realisation", that is Self-realization.Meditation and Mysticism is an individual path into the world of the divine within and beyond rites, rituals and philosophies. It isthe inner light and sound provide the spiritual guidanceAs it is also a path full of mysteries, it is not understood byeveryone and very often it is mistaken to be a path of theAghories or idles. It is false to consider it as a path omisunderstanding, pretension or spiritual lunacy. It is in fact a path of complete freedom and serenity beyond all social etiquettes, very oftenconfronting people’s attitudes.Instead of being a path of external ado, it is a silent life-style of its own either leading to self-realization or off-shooting from it.Like the natural phenomena of the beautiful rainbow created bythe light of the Sun and the colours of the nature, mysticismexcels with the light of God and the colours of philosophies.Although God or God-realization is somehow hardlycomprehensible to intellect, feeling the divinity is alwayspossible with open heart through purity and faith.Such an inert experience is unfolded and amplified only to thosewho either have an easy recipiency or who are following theguidance of an adept of the field.As any other system mysticism allows the followers to have ataste of the divine existence according to their levels oconsciousness. In short, it is an open way of spiritual perceptionwhich embodies multi-dimensional sadhnas or sidhis as they are

Self-realization
is a concept that has become widely popular in the Western andthat has great influence from some Eastern religions. For instance, for the Hinduor Bharat religion self-realization refers to a profound spiritual awakening wherethere is an awakening from an illusory self identify image (
 Ego
), to the true,divine, perfect condition that the individual is. The branch of Advaita Vedanta isthe one that has especially developed this concept."True realisation takes place on knowing and seeing God in His transcendentalform. It is a metaphysical experience within the human body. The manifestationof inherent divinity is in reality the revelation of the divine self of man. This isnot different from the Supreme Self that permeates even the tiniest particle inthe universe. It is accessible to all human beings."True realisation takes place on knowing and seeing God in His transcendentalform. It is a metaphysical experience within the human body. The manifestationof inherent divinity is in reality the revelation of the divine self of man. This isnot different from the Supreme Self that permeates even the tiniest particle inthe universe. It is accessible to all human beings.It is upon this trans-sensuous experience that we become truly religious.Lord Krishna says in the Bhagavad Gita , "Neither by study of the Vedas nor byaustere penance, nor by charity, nor even by rituals can I be seen in mytranscendental form, Arjuna". In an earlier verse (4.34), Krishna tells Arjuna thatthis para- vidya or knowledge of the spirit can be imparted by a wise seer and anillumined soul alone. Such a sadguru does not stuff your mind with prolificdescription of Atman and Parmatman , but one who takes you beyond thedifferent paths of realisation.The life of every individual is an unstable mixture of pairs of opposites. Formost of us, everyday life is replete with trials and tribulations of varying degreesand magnitude. While the thoughtful among men seek to know the meaning andpurpose of life, the ignorant ones just grumble and talk of a ''cruel'' Godwhenever in distress. Human life has a higher and nobler purpose and thedestiny of a human being is to move higher up in the cosmic order to reachperfection and to realise the permanent and Supreme Bliss in the Realm of God.The religious books themselves exhort human beings to know and realise thereal aim of their life and not just confine themselves to ritualistic reading andrecitation of scriptures.
