The Antahkarana

In Hindu philosophy the antahkarana (Skt.) refers to the totality of two levels of mind, namely the buddhi, intellect or higher mind and the manas, the middle levels of mind which (according to Theosophy) exist as or include the mental body. Antahkarana has also been called the link between the middle and higher mind, the reincarnating part of the mind.

In Vedāntic literature this antahkaraṇa (internal organ) is organised into four parts:
  1. Ahamkāra (ego) — identifies the Atman (Self) with the body as 'I'
  2. Buddhi (intellect) — controls decision making
  3. Manas (mind) — controls sankalpa (will or resolution)
  4. Chitta (memory) — deals with remembering and forgetting
Another description says that "Antahkarana" refers to the entire psychological process, including mind and emotions, are composing the mind levels, as described above, which are mentioned as an unit that functions with all parts working together as a whole. Futhermore, when considering that mind levels are bodies, they are: manomayakosha - related to manas - the part of mind related to five senses, and also craving for new and pleasant sensations and emotions, while buddhi (intellect, intelligence, capacity to reason), is related to vijnanamayakosha - the body of consciousness, knowledge, intuition and experience.

Antahkarana also refers to a symbol used in the Reiki healing method.

The Antahkarana symbol is also a meditation and healing symbol from Tibet, which has been used in China and Tibet for thousands of years.The symbol has a consciousness of it own and will work independently for the Highest Good. 

The symbol itself is multi-dimensional, and when first looked at appears as a two dimensional form of three 7s within a circle, these represent the seven colours of the rainbow, seven notes of the musical scale and seven chakras. As a three dimensional object, the symbol appears as a cube, and other dimensions can appear if you meditate with it.
The history of it is very sketchy, but it is widely held that it was a secret and sacred tool known to very few Masters.

The Antahkarana is a high intensity production of nan-o-ray energy for use in cellular regeneration and toxic remission. It produces energy in the shape of a flame, with a spike of energy in the centre which is the strongest point within the field. A large unit will produce a large field. The energy flame of white light can be measured with an electron counter, (I haven't tried this!) The white flame moves in a clockwise spin.

The information also suggests that you can purify water with it, by placing a jug on the symbol for 9 minutes. It will remove plutonium, lead, copper, mercury, radon and radioactive contamination! As the human body is made up of 70% water, put one under your bed! 

Antahkarana is a way, a conduit, a connection between our intelligent mind and the higher levels of perception and consciousness. Antahkarana is a Sanskrit word for “Rainbow Bridge”, the pathway that the Seeker must trailblaze in order to be released from Samsara.  The weaving of this individual connection is the way to reach a higher conscience of Shambhala.  Antahkarana is also known as an ancient symbol of Spiritual Healing.

Biblical Reference: Jacob’s Ladder

Jacob's Ladder is a ladder to heaven, described in the Book of Genesis that the biblical patriarch Jacob envisions during his flight from his brother Esau. Jacob dreamed that there was a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven; and behold, the angels of God were ascending and descending on it! And behold, the Lord stood above it [or "beside him"] and said, “I am the Lord, the God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and to your descendants; and your descendants shall be like the dust of the earth, and you shall spread abroad to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south; and by you and your descendants shall all the families of the earth bless themselves. ”

Apocalyptic Literature

The narrative of the Jacob’s Ladder was used, shortly after the Destruction of the Temple, as basis for a pseudepigraphic text of the Hebrew Bible: the Ladder of Jacob. This writing, a non-rabbinic Jewish text preserved only by Christians, interprets the experience of Patriarchs in the context of Merkabah mysticism.

In the Gospel of John 1:51 there is clear reference to Jacob’s dream (Genesis 28:12) and it points towards Jesus Christ who is called with his title of Son of Man:  “And he said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.”

The theme of the ladder to heaven is often used by the Early Church Fathers: Saint Irenaeus in the 2nd century describes the Christian Church as the ladder of ascent to God.

In the 3rd century Origen explains that two are the ladders in the Christian life: the first, the ascetic ladder that the soul climbs on the earth increasing the virtues; and second, the travel that the soul does after the death, climbing the heavens up to the light of God.

In the 4th century Saint Gregory of Nazianzus speaks of ascending Jacob’s Ladder by successive steps towards excellence, interpreting thus the ladder as an ascetic path, while Saint Gregory of Nyssa narrates that Moses climbed on Jacob’s Ladder to reach the heavens where he entered the tabernacle not made with hands, thus giving to the Ladder a clear mystical meaning. The ascetic interpretation is found also in Saint John Chrysostom who writes: “And so mounting as it were by steps, let us get to heaven by a Jacob’s ladder. For the ladder seems to me to signify in a riddle by that vision the gradual ascent by means of virtue, by which it is possible for us to ascend from earth to heaven, not using material steps, but improvement and correction of manners.”

Antahkarana is the main conduit that builds the relationship between the three different levels of consciousness: The Shambhala Consciousness, the Higher Human Consciousness and the Hierarchy Consciousness.  The Consciousness of Shambhala is related to the original Monad and the aspects of the Will.  The Hierarchy Consciousness is related to the Soul and the Love aspect.  The Human Consciousness relates to the Personality and the Intelligence aspect.

Antahkarana is a cord developed by the Seeker through Meditation & directed Spiritual practice. It requires fortitude and perseverance to reach a progress on this path. There are much old residues, negative activated memory cells and psychic rubbish that need to be cleared of one’s energy field in order to nurture the new openings for the relationship with our souls.
In the first Stage of development, the Seeker receives direct help from the Soul, and later from the Monad. The Seeker must manifest the correct Intention and will to reweave the connection, once that this new bond will be built upon the Original Cord linked by the Soul to the Lower Bodies, namely Sutrama.

Sutrama is the Thread of Life, sometimes called “the Silver Cord” and it makes the connections into the lower three worlds, and Lower Bodies.  It is an independent energy stream which stretches from God, which travels through an infinity of chakra levels though the fabric of dimensions (time/space) until it eventually reaches the grounding point  in our Pineal Gland.  This is truly our Spiritual link to higher consciousness.

Antahkarana is a vehicle of Wisdom and Clarity of Purpose on our daily lives. Antahkarana is a thread of Spiritual Light and it is built just the same way as a spider weaves its web.  Its string of light is weaved by the Seeker life after life, and can only be ‘energized” by higher Spiritual vibrations.

Antahkarana can only be built with the Mental and high Spiritual qualities of one’s Soul.  The construction of the Rainbow Bridge can be very slow.  It requires constant practice and experience on the energetic field.  Its final construction turns the Mental Consciousness receptive to the direction from the Soul and later enables it to receive the directives from the Monad Itself.

The spiritual union between the higher guidance alchemizes the Personality to be a reliable resource for the Soul on its Purpose on Earth. It is important during the process of developing the personal Antahkarana, to also develop the “Earth Thread”, which is the extension of the upper connection of the soul with the Core of earth.
The relationship between the Antahkarana and the Earth Core is very important, because through it, we help and support the building of the Planetary Antahkarana, and consequently build the deeper relationship with “All That Is”.
Antahkarana is a necessary tool for the activation of Merkabah, astral and time traveling, and Stargate passing.
