T.K. Sribhashyam and Alamelu Sheshadri

(published in English and soon in French)

According to the philosophies of India, Bhakti, devotion, is the supreme path that leads to the emancipation of the soul.

By quoting excerpts from the main texts that deal with devotion, the authors make an exhaustive synthesis of this vast subject, and by referring to the writings of the great philosopher Sri Rāmānuja, they highlight the interrelationship between man and God, and the means to implement to achieve union with the Divine.

From Devotion to Total Surrender, Śaraṇāgati Yoga - In the Light of Indian Philosophy

T.K. Sribhashyam and Alamelu Sheshadri 

(published in English and soon in French)

In their third book, From Devotion to Total Surrender, Śaraṇāgati Yoga – In the Light of Indian Philosophy, Sri T.K. Sribhashyam and Srimati Alamelu Sheshadri present the way to reach perfection through a devotional approach. The tone is given from the Presentation: "Man, caught up in bondage from a beginningless time due to avidyā (ignorance) assumes that the self belongs to him and that he enjoys full freedom, thereby developing a sense of egoism. After gaining philosophical knowledge regarding the true nature of the self and its relation to God, he realises that the self is absolutely dependent on God. Regretting over the wrong notion he had nourished so far and with all sincerity, he pleads before God that the self does not belong to him but to God and offers it to Him. This method is self-surrender (śaraṇāgati). This process implies renouncement of three types of egoism: (1) one is the agent of action, (2) it belongs to him and (3) the fruit of the act is for him. "

The philosophical writings of India proclaim unanimously that one must take advantage of one's human birth to advance the soul (jīvā) towards perfection. The way to do this is to design something that has a perfect shape.

The Absolute is beyond thought and speech, and therefore can not be an object of devotion. The perfect form is Iṣṭa Devatā, the God chosen by everyone.

After a chapter devoted to the universality of the teachings of Sri Rāmānuja, especially on the Spiritual Consciousness (Śudda sattva), a practical approach of the explicit method concludes this volume: the reader knows from now on the sevenfold way and holds all the elements allowing him to implement Śaraṇāgati Yoga.

Yogakshemam students were able to benefit from Sri T.K. Sribhashyam's "Course" on the Mahābhārata. The Rāmāyaṇa has a special status in the literature of India, which is why Sri T.K. Sribhashyam offered "speeches" on Rāmāyaṇa in the name of his father, Sri T. Krishnamacharya.
