We are on the threshold of a New Era which is dominated by the Aquarian forces. It is characterised by diffusion of
all dogma in every field \u2014 science, philosophy, spiritualism etc. The basic cause for the existence of dogma in any
field is lack of balance between analysis and synthesis. The tremendous force of Aquarian influence has its negative
aspect which is lack of balance. Unless it is balanced and controlled by a synthesised Master-mind, it may drag into
dangerous extremities. We have experienced this effect with the discovery of nuclear force. In the field of medicine
also we can observe the intense analytical approach which lead to materialistic understanding and loss of holistic
sense. This resulted in too much of specialisation and lack of synthetic understanding of human constitution. The
Masters of wisdom are working out the way to put an end to this confusion by enforcing strong positive approach
using the power of synthesis. Their prophecy is that the new generation which is going to lead the 21st century will
be able to synthesise science and philosophy through spiritualism so that the humanity can be free from all
negativism and dogma before it can make a step towards higher evolution.
Master E.K. is one such Master who are working for this goal. A strong and positive aquarian force can be
experienced in his teachings. He trained the younger generation and paved the path for the operation of New Era with
all synthetic understanding. He unlocked the universal sciences in t he Vedic scriptures and brought out the treasure
of Divine wisdom which is the need of this age. In 1984, he conducted a special course for a bunch of his disciples,
in which he has given the essence of his teachings in various subjects which forms a syllabus for the study of occult
sciences applied to the human life. "Occult Anatomy" is one such subject taught by him which unlocks the mysteries
of the hidden forces in the human constitution. To the luck of humanity, all these lessons were recorded by our
brothers and preserved in the cassettes. Thanks to their efforts in this holy work. Now with the blessings of the
Master, we are able to transcribe the lessons from the cassettes and bring them in the form of this book. This work
was pioneered by our brother Punniah who was assisted by Ramachandra Rao, Raghava Rao and Subrahmanya
Sastry. May the Master bless us all by enabling us to bring all the lessons from his cassettes into book form so that it
can be passed to next generations. Also on behalf of the publishers I thank those brothers who silently extended
financial help in making this effort fruitful.
At the very outset "Occult Anatomy" sounds to be a new and awe-evoking subject. But, in fact, it is as old as man. It
is an eye-opener to the inner constitution of the human being. The structure of the hidden and subtler vehicles in man
forms the scope of the subject. These vehicles are not visible to the physical eye. They cannot even be found in the
laboratories, just like the lines of force of a magnet. The so called physical body is only a phantom, when compared
to the inner man who is in essence the "I AM" in all. The physical body is just like a chariot in which the traveller is
seated. He has the driver's guiding assistance. In fact, before the traveller has come out of the driver, both are one.
The former has falsely identified himself with his vehicle and gets bondage. Thereby again he has to realise that he is
one with the driver. The process is called yoga. The goal is the experience or Ananda, also called liberation. In
between, there is the ascent of the false "I AM", i.e., Jiva and the descent of the Lord, the real I AM, which meet with
each other in the heart centre. This occurs during the pilgrim's journey via many other centres. All this essential
subject has been in detail explained in the Vedas, the Upanishads an d the Puranas. The Bhagavadgita and Patanjali's
Yoga Sutras present the core of the subject in a systematised form. However, both of these two sacred works do not
touch the theoretical and technical part of the subject. On the other hand, they dive deep into the practical steps to be
followed, in a non-technical and lucid procedure. Some Tantra books, Sankaracharya's Soundarya Lahari, books like
Shatchakra Nirupanam deal with both the theory and the practice related to this science. However, even these books
have this subject "Occult Anatomy" jumbled with many more other things connected with it.
Further, for the Occident, this science is entirely a new one. Far the last so many centuries, due to groping in the
darkness of materialism, the light of Occult Anatomy is not present there. Now the time has come, to bring this light
again. In this connection, we should not ignore the historical fact that the Oaken's rod of Moses is nothing other than
the Brahma Danda or Yoga Danda in the yoga science of the Orient. The pattern of organising twelve disciples by
Jesus Christ also has the occult message of this subject along the pairs of six centres in man. Even in the Orient, for
the last few centuries, the science of Occult Anatomy has been lost except to the eyes of a few. Again the Masters
who are the custodians of ageless wisdom, have dawned this subject on the present world through the works of
theosophists like Madame H.P. Blavatsky and the staunch Occidental devotee to the Mother-Goddess, Sir John
Woodrof. Now the time has come, Master E.K. has presented the subject in his usual, non-technical, lucid, artistic
and heart-touching way orderly, for the first time in the history of the world. He has opened many, many gates at the
threshold of our true existence i.e., "Real I AM". With due reverence to a chain of exponents of yoga and theosophy
Master pays homage to them during the course of his teaching. To the fortune of the modern aspirants and the
students of yoga, in February, 1984, Master E.K. taught this subject at Mothugudem where yoga classes were held
during his last sojourn in physical frame. His way of presentation was like neither conference nor philosophy. The
abstract science was brought into light and moulded as an art by the Aquarian sculptor of ancient wisdom, our
revered Master E.K.
In the very opening chapter, he deals with Jiva and Deha, the three gunas, the birth of sense-organs etc. Later he
takes us from the false I AM to the real I AM. He has enlightened to us the presence of I AM in all, through life
activity filled with nectareous love. Thus we can become Iswara, the Lord of senses and the environment, instead of
being a slave to them. This is possible only in the presence of an enlightened soul, who has already become 'Iswara'.
We are very fortunate, been drawn to the presence of such a magnet like Master. Let us utilise this fortune properly
and fulfil his cherished wish "You all must become I AM" He exhorts us by referring to his guru C.V.V.'s promise
and instructions regarding Prayer.
Master's is a creative, conversational and inimitable style. His speeches are extempore. They are polished with poetic
gestures. Sometimes he narrates. At times, he describes and elucidates also. At other times, he illustrates. Some other
times, he demonstrates. He extracts the participation of the students and keep them alive to what he is teaching. His
pauses too are meaningful. His every action and word in the course of his teaching the subject are pregnant with a
certain, definite, esoteric and divine motive. His technique of teaching an abstract and technical subject like Occult
Anatomy is unique. His approach, even while teaching, is parental. He thus gets access into the inner corridors of the
hearts of the listeners like a mother and absorbs their consciousnesses into Himself. Their presence is neutralised and
His presence illumines with a thousand \u2014 sunned splendour. The present renderence of the science of Occult
Anatomy by Master is, truly to say, only a nutshell of the subject and it will become a concise physics text book of
the twenty first century. Perhaps, he should have reserved the details, to be supplemented, for his next birth, to suit
for the coming generations.
...the real pranayama, as propounded by the Vedic seers, no other than Lord Krishna Himself and the Master of yoga,
Patanjali. In the tight of Master E.K.'s teaching, the darkness of nasty methods under the name of Pranayama is shed
out. Further, Master presents the very core of yoga practice, viz., surrender of false I am to the real I AM, who is the
indweller of all, through the utterance of OM and listening to our own voice therein. He also deals with the eight
steps of yoga. In his description of Samadhi, he illustrates colourfully. He throws light on Kundalini, which is
nothing but a coiled coil of our own awareness. He works out the details of the six centres of intelligent energy in the
inner body, along the bore of vertebral column, their workings, their governance, their relation with the Panchabhutas
in our body, the sounds, colours and meditations connected to these centres and further the manifestation of Divine
qualities in the yoga practitioner during his journey via each centre, in a systematised and lucid manner. Three
essential Nadis Ida, Pingala and Sushumna i.e., the lunar, the solar and the fiery., their activities, their bestowing the
yogic qualities etc., are focussed on the students' eyes. The subject may look like a science, at the outset. When we
go through the book, we find it, an art. By the time we come to the end, we are graced with the wisdom of the highest
spiritualism enclaved in the fullest blossom of life. Master has given us the divine message thus. Respond to the
environment and do not react to it. The how of response and when to respond must come out of the inner most shelf
of consciousness i.e., our true existence viz., real I AM and not from the mind. The mind and senses, when properly
utilised become sacred instruments to reach the goal. They are neither to be discarded, nor we to be subdued to them.
Instead of being drawn and swayed over by the environment, we can magnetise it, when we live always in...
In framing this book, care has been taken in keeping Master's words, remarks, grand and subtle humour, wit,
examples, short stories, pause, his rich experiences with noble souls, his little responses to students' queries,
colourful incidents, in toto, with the pious motto that the readers must be benefitted by the presence of Master. The
readers wilt include those who have been in physical contact with hi m, besides those who have not at all seen him.
The former will be thrown into the sweet memoirs of their being in his presence when in physical frame. The latter
will be magnetised by his umbrosious presence. But for all the above things, the content of this book becomes very
dry and abstract. No lay man dares to open its pages. Now the rocky hill has been melted into a honey-fall. The
impersonal Divinity manifested through the personal element of Master is engrafted on the hearts of the readers of
this book, as it is taken now. It is hoped, the readers would apprec iate the structure of the book which is undoubtedly
a masterpiece in the field of its kind.
Lastly to say, this book is very, very sacred as it is graced with the invocation of the parents of the cosmos, Siva and
Sakti, by Master. Finally he says, "May these Parents bless you all in every way, before we meet again and even
after". In these words choked with immensely burning compassion for us all, he esoterically prophecises that we will
be blessed with meeting him again and again. Before we do it physically, let us receive his blessings and live in him.
We have the Modern Anatomy of understanding the human constitution. We know many things relating to the same.
Most advanced things are taught in Modern Anatomy. Much more advanced things are taught in Ancient Anatomy.
But we do not know them. The ancients taught many more things which the moderns never taught and they are yet to
know. We need not spend much time on Modern Anatomy because any preliminary text book will give it. For
example, in Modern Anatomy, we have bony system, muscular system, cutaneous system, circulatory system,
respiratory system, nervous system, digestive system, excretory system and lymphatic system. A substance called
lymph is produced. Its existence is in the circulatory system and protects the system against many evils. In fact, this
is not glandular system. Glandular system is connected with lymphatic system. Both are considered the same.
Glandular system is otherwise called the endocrine system. These glands are called the ductless glands. This is only a
little example of the divisions of modern teaching of anatomy. Each division has its own details much to teach. This
is a separate branch of science in itself. For this, you can approach any doctor who can teach you carefully. You can
follow this subject with his help, carefully read and make yourself sufficient within two or three years, otherwise,
you may become a qualified practitioner without knowing. Either way, you can go.
Now what is the Anatomy of the ancients? Everybody has two parts, Jiva and Deha. This is the first division. Jiva means the indweller and Deha means the subsistence or the vehicle. The indweller and his vehicle are just like the chariot and the person who is travelling, the traveller. We can say they are like the traveller and the van or the indweller and his horse. This is a two-fold division. The driver and the traveller are one before the traveller comes out of the driver, because the whole creation was only one space before it came out. Before the solar system come out, there was only space. But after solar system comes out, there is space and solar system. Like that, there is only one indweller at first. From indweller, there will be a bifurcation again, the driver and the traveller. The traveller is the Jiva and the driver is the Lord-consciousness inside. And the in dweller or Jiva is also called purusha or person.
