KAMLESH D. PATEL introduces the most important feature of Heartfulness: transmission. It is not something new, having been around for thousands of years, but like any other transfer of energy, it is the quality and potency that matter.

The Science of Spirituality

At this time in human history, we all have the opportunity to experience this life-transforming offering from the Source, wherever we are.

Over the past few decades, meditation has acquired universal recognition for its numerous positive effects. Many methods of meditation are available and it is possible that all of them may be good. The Heartfulness meditation technique is also good, but what makes it unique is the addition of another element known as pranahuti, or yogic transmission. Yogic transmission makes meditation truly dynamic, and it is the real specialty of the Heartfulness method offered by Sahaj Marg.

What is transmission? Transmission has been defined as the utilization of divine energy for the transformation of man. Here we are not speaking of physical transformation, as our bodies are limited by our genetic makeup. For example, we might be able to gain or lose a few pounds, but we cannot change our height substantially. On the mental level, there are fewer limitations. We can all learn — some very easily and some with greater difficulty — but it is only on the spiritual level that there is infinite scope for growth. Transmission is the nourishment that allows such unlimited growth.

If transmission is an energy that can bring about infinite growth, it must also be infinite. In the physical world, there is no such thing as infinite energy. The sun can blaze for billions of years, but eventually even it will burn itself out. Under Einstein’s famous equation, E=mc2, energy is always limited by the velocity of light and the finiteness of mass. But yogis have never been bound by physical laws. An adept meditator may be seated in one country, while the aspirant is seated in some distant place across oceans and mountains. Yet, the moment the adept triggers the transmission, the aspirant receives it wherever he or she may be. This is the common experience of so many meditators. If we merely think of transmission, it starts to flow instantly.

The best way to understand transmission remains to experience it practically.


Even light cannot travel instantly. If a distance can be traversed in zero time, the velocity is infinite. Hypothetically, what would happen to Einstein’s equation if we were to substitute the speed of light with such infinite velocity? Inserting infinity into the equation means that the energy that comes to us would also be infinite, and its source would also have to be infinite. This is transmission.

While the link between science and spirituality continues to be a source of debate and research, the best way to understand transmission remains to experience it practically. Trying to grasp transmission intellectually is like trying to understand the taste of strawberry ice cream intellectually. Is it possible to convey its taste in words to someone who has never tried it? You can explain all about sucrose, dairy proteins, and the temperature at which milk freezes, but it would all be useless. In the end, you would probably say, “Just try it!”

Add transmission to your individual spiritual or religious practice, faith or no faith, and you will experience a quantum shift in your inner experience from day one. I say faith or no faith, because faith is the result of the impact of some esoteric experience. Without such experience, belief remains unproductive and unfulfilling.

You can use scientific experimentation to test the effects of transmission. First, meditate without transmission, using only the prescribed Heartfulness technique. Then, after a few minutes, meditate using the same technique, but with the assistance of an adept who meditates along with you. This expert can either be physically present with you or at a remote location. You can do this as many times as you like, as it will be replicable. This test will allow you to compare the difference between meditation without transmission and meditation then with transmission.

For many people, the experience of receiving transmission is so convincing that no further proof or understanding is necessary. I invite you to experiment and experience it for yourself.
