Master Davinder Singh Panesar
Gurmat - A practical guide to self realisation is the first publication of its kind that is based on the psycho-spiritual paradigm, that brings together psychology, mind-body science, psycho-physiology, transpersonal development and practical approaches to cultivate a path towards health, wellbeing, self-actualisation, self-realisation and ultimately a state of self-sovereignty, all within the context of the Sikh wisdom tradition.
This publication clearly identifies the current outdated and distorted bio-medical and psychological models within the dominant Western worldview. It juxtaposes the Western psychological model against the time tested, consciousness based Eastern models, particularly that of the Sikh wisdom tradition.
In addition to providing a comprehensive model of what it is to be human, based on teachings of the Sikh Gurus, it further explores the nature of the mind, the role of the ego, its construction, function and transcendence. Moreover, it provides the role the ego in mental illness, creating its own suffering, storing and reinforcing it unhealthy cognitive patterns of behaviour.
Finally, it provides practical techniques and practices, backed through understanding and experience, that enable heal and induction of life affirming positive psychological states.
This is the first publication of its kind that truly brings the timeless teachings from the Sikh wisdom tradition and their impact of personal and transpersonal health and wellbeing. Opening the door for further research and platform to challenge the outdated and ineffective models for mental health and authenticity, and provide time tested effective interventions.
Gurmat provides a comprehensive non-eurocentric psychological model to health, holism and wellbeing. The ancient wisdom traditions of Indian civilization have undertaken the most profound examination of the human mind and consciousness. This book introduces Gurmat, one of the most advanced psycho-spiritual and wellbeing systems to emerge from the east. Its approach addressing human suffering, self-actualisation, self-realisation and self-sovereignty.
Gurmat makes an important contribution to the science of psychological studies, psycho-physiology, mental health and provides a perennial form of healing which includes the realisation of the eternal, limitless sacred nature of the Self beyond the confines of the ego-complex (haumai). It complements the health systems of Buddhist psychology or Abidharam, Yoga and Aryuveda.
In contrast to the highly evolved Eastern psychological systems, Western psychology is relatively primitive in its approach to cultivation of psychological health and wellbeing ; let alone what lies beyond the ego. The current biomedical model is distorted and incorrect, founded on mind-body separation, without any real understanding of the nature of mind nor consciousness.
This book represents a valuable contribution to the science of holism, health and wellness, and will be of great value not only to psychologists, counselors, therapists and mental health professionals, but also to those individuals who are interested in their own evolution and development.
