The Sutras On The 5-Fold Act of Divine Consciousness is destined to become an authoritative work among the scriptural doctrines and sacred texts of Yoga Science. Drawing on the support of the Shaiva Agamas, the Shastras and the Puranas, and the inspiration of many of the world's renowned poet saints, Acharya Kedar illuminates the principles of God Consciousness that govern the Creation, Sustenance and Withdrawal of the universe. This work is an essential primer for anyone seeking to better understand Meditation and the path of Spanda Yoga.

Why is the understanding and experience of The 5-Fold Act of Divine Consciousness so important on the path to Liberation?

There are a number of ways to recognize God. Most of these provide glimpses of God by producing altered states of consciousness that are only temporary. Also, there is the act of recognizing God within yourself, and then there is the recognition that you are God. These are two different things. Even better than the intellectual understanding that you are God is the constant state of rapture, the constant, uninterrupted experience that you are God and that God dwells in everything and everyone, everywhere.

Practicing the awareness of The 5-Fold Act, over time, puts you into a constant state of deliberation and experience of God's immanent and transcendental aspects. When you are constantly aware of these, recognition of the Shiva-Shakti principle at work in every moment of your life comes easily. And seeing God in each other and everywhere becomes the common experience. The awareness of The 5-Fold Act puts your focus on your identity with Shiva. It solidifies this identification with Divine Consciousness because you become aware of God at all times.
