Devayonii Microvita

Shrii P. R. Sarkar  in 1986 described the smallest unit of life as microvitum. He divided them into 3 types: the crude, the subtle and subtlest. Furthermore, functionally microvita (MV) can be regarded as positive, neutral or negative. One may be able to see the crude MV with the aid of a sophisticated microscope which perhaps is not yet been invented. The MV is said to be smaller than the electron or it is placed between the electron and the ectoplasmic unit.  It has a body (in theory) and a mind as well. The latter would imply that it is connected with consciousness or the reflection of it in the mental plate.  Therefore, microvitum can be assumed to be a unit of life.  We may be living in an ocean of MV which not only exists outside of us but also within us and everywhere in the cosmos. It may be existing dormant (billions of them forming the core of the atom) as matter, and as free entities, going through birth, evolutionary growth and death. There may be turn over of the dormant MV into free living forms, and vice versa; since the atoms and molecules of living cells and matter are in constant flux. The material base of human body for example is said to be completely replaced in matter of few months.  The crude MV may be existing in the time-space dimensions of the material plane as well as stretching into the transcendental plane, with velocity greater than the speed of light. Shrii Sarkar stated that the presence of subtle MV can be felt indirectly by their action but not directly objectified.

MV are said to be emanations of cosmic mind.

Since cosmic mind is all pervading presence, connected with or at the back of deeper layers of mind (ectoplasm), the emanation of MV may occur from cellular mind and the unit mind .  Are they also produced from the matter such as rock, since cosmic mind and consciousness are intrinsic to everything? If so, is the creation of MV original or simply turn over ( release) from the atomic core? Somewhere, it was stated that clouds or swarms of  essence (mv), as it were appear to come out or go into the rock, as if the rock is inhaling and exhaling them!

Focusing on subtle MV, Shrii Sarkar described the 7 types or categories of Devayonis : Yaksha, Gandharva, Kinnara, Prakritiliina, Videhaliina, Vidyadhara and Siddha. Perhaps there are numerous subtypes.

In  Indian mythology and vedic literature  330 million Devas were said to exist.

Hindu and Buddhist literature refer to Devas, some of them worshipped in the temples with elaborate rituals, usually for guidance and protection.

In European legends  Elves, Jinn, Sylphs, Fairies, Angels etc were mentioned

Angeles existed in the old Egyptian, Assyrian, Babylonian literature

Old testament and the new testaments have detailed description of Angels, both good and bad. So also, the Islamic religions have their own.

Christianity refers to angels as thought forms of God. Medieval paintings show them as physical beings- in human form, usually with wings.  Dionysus described 9 ranks of angels such as archangels, Thrones, Dominations, princedoms, powers, seraphim, and the cherubim (babies with wings, in the paintings)- higher rank.    The 7 archangels described as “lamps of fire burning before the throne of God” (example: Michael, Gabriel, Raphael)

According to Shrii Sarkar, crude MV forms the basis of matter, although it is between matter and the abstract,

Whereas subtle MV, which cannot be objectively studied or known, is not in the material realm, it is not bound by time –space dimensions of this universe, but it is part of the multi-verse or multidimensional existence, which is transcendental for human experience. When mass of subtle MV come together in an organized way to form purposeful defined entities, perhaps they are called Devayoniis. They do not have liquid or solid factor, therefore they are invisible to human eyes. However, it seems that their presence can be felt, and the effects they cause can be felt or experienced by humans.

It seems they have the power to appear in forms (to humans), also create or accompany subtle music, effulgence, fragrance, feelings of awe and devotion etc in human terms.

Subtle MV travel faster than light, cross all barriers known to us, they move with the thought wave, using the latter as medium. Therefore, they can instantly move an idea to any part of the earth or the cosmos.

In theosophist literature, MV is referred to as “ elemental essence”, for example it is stated that “astral elemental essence is crude and is connected with the body and its evolution, and mental elemental essence with its many gradations plays an evolutionary role. Both are derived from the second outpouring of Deity during the outward arc of creation”.  They draw distinction between particles of mental body (ectoplasm) and mental elemental essence, although both are intimately related.

“ A thought-form is a temporary living entity of intense activity animated by the one idea that generated it. The elemental essence is a strange  semi-intelligent life which surrounds us, vivifying matter of the mental plane. It responds readily to the influence of human thought so that every impulse sent out from the mental body of a man immediately clothes itself in a temporary vehicle of this essence”.

Jane Roberts in her book “ The Seth material” stated that electromagnetic (EM) units were the basic carriers of perception, they were freewheeling, pulsating,  can be used in normal perception or extra sensory perception, they used space to move through, they were the animations rising from consciousness within each physical particle or molecular consciousness, cellular consciousness as well as larger gestalts of consciousness. Certain intensities, emotional energy and certain positions of polarity between and among the EM units, and great groupings of the units compress energy into solid form, resulting in matter. The energy points in the units were basically indestructible. The inner ego (Mahat-tattva?) organizes, initiates, projects and controls EM units, transforming into objects, into matter. So a person established in the Mahat-tattva level can create matter by directing or controlling the MV. Medieval occultists categorized invisible beings into 4 groups:


Fallen angels

Souls of the dead

Elemental spirits such as elves

The last category of entities have been utilized for a long time in primitive cultures everywhere, for treating diseases, guidance in certain matters and for protection etc. Various names are given to these entities. For example in one district in south India, they are worshipped like village deities, named:  Bobbarya, Jumathee, Kallukutiga, Panjurlie, Annappa etc.

Shrii Sarkar briefly mentioned about ghosts, Yakshiini, and other phenomenon that was connected with the power of the mind playing tricks on human perception.  The vivid stories in Shabda Cayanika’  brought to light the history and politics of the land  through  conversations with entities, perhaps were the departed souls. The description of Khapurusha or the heavenly effulgence, represented Siddha MV and  similar manifestations perhaps were experienced by the shepherds in Fatima,  and other visions of shining being (Joseph Smith) or burning bush( Moses). It appears that the effulgent beings or Siddha MV may be experienced variously as per the individual samskaras, religion and belief. In Europe some apparitions of effulgence were interpreted as the appearance of Mary, mother of Christ.

Other phenomenon such crop circles, automatic writings, UFO are not adequately explained. The UFO phenomenon may be related to MV entities of higher orders guiding and influencing human evolution on earth. The phenomenon may be distortion of perceptions( as per the archetypal memories in the collective unconscious) by the appearances or transmissions of the spiritual world or invisible world into the space-time dimension.
