Brahmarshi Daivarata

A few years later while giving a talk at the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan in Mumbai I was given a curious present, a book called Chandodarshana by Daivarata, another important disciple of Ganapati Muni and Ramana Maharshi. The Bhavan members didn’t know of my connection with Ganapati, so it was a coincidence. I later received Vak Sudha, another work of Daivarata as well.

Daivarata followed Ganapati’s vision but unlike Kapali remained close to Ramana and did not join Aurobindo. He developed a Vedic view based upon Ganapati’s ideas, including his own direct vision of new Vedic mantras much like the Rishis of old. He also worshipped the Goddess, particularly as Sarasvati and Tara.

I learned later that Maharishi Mahesh Yogi brought Daivarata to the West in the early seventies as a living example of a modern Vedic Rishi with the full knowledge of the Vedas and the power of its mantras. I found great inspiration in his work. Daivarata like Ganapati entered into my psyche as a key part of the new Vedic renaissance.
