Brahma Cakra is a discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti on 1964 December 9 in Salem, India. This discourse is the first chapter of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 33.[1]

Synopsis

Now in this cakra or in these cakras two forces are working: one is the eccentric force, and the other is the concentric force. For this eccentric force, or centrifugal force, the Sanskrit term is Avidyámáyá or avidyá shakti; and the concentric force, or centripetal force, is called Vidyámáyá or vidyá shakti in Sanskrit. Both are Máyá. Both concentric and eccentric, vidyá and avidyá, are expressions of the same Máyá, the same Creative Principle. And that Nucleus is the lord of that Creative Principle, is the svámii of that Creative Principle.

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

Anandamurti starts the discourse by saying that everything in the universe works in a systematic order. As electrons move around the atomic nucleus and planets whirl around the sun, so do all unit beings rotate around the center of the cosmological order (Brahma Cakra). Anandamurti then explains that in this hub of the cosmic wheel two forces are at work: avidyá shakti is the force that pulls the jiivas (unit beings) further away from Brahma (Supreme entity) either by depraving thoughts or sinful actions, and vidyá shakti is the force that brings the devotees closer to Brahma (by deciding to become a good person and following the path of spiritual practice). Anandamurti goes on saying that God showers His grace on everyone with no partiality. Common people do not feel drenched by His grace, because they hold an umbrella of vanity over their head. By dint of one's sadhana (spiritual endeavor), one will come closer to God and feel His immense grace.[1]
