Deepa Kodikal (1941 – 2013) was a university graduate in science, family woman with four children, and mystic. Kodikal had varied tastes, enjoying playing the sitar, performing Indian dance and music, and flying gliders. She was also a play writer and director as well as a painter. Kodikal is the author of A Journey Within the Self, a diary of yogic revelations in which she described the adventure of inner awakening. She also wrote Teachings of the Inner Light: A Blueprint for Right Living, a work that received wide critical acclaim.
Deepa Kodikal described her mystical consciousness, which occurred during a “deep meditation” one night, as follows:
“I began by seeing the universe as one sees the sky from earth. Slowly, my individual identity was broken down, and, when my limiting individuality was totally demolished, I assumed the universal form. I was everywhere at one time, seeing everything, the micro, the macro, from the closest quarters, from the furthest range. I was everywhere, all-pervading, formless, omnipresent, all-knowing and all-enjoying.
I was omnipresent, all-knowing and all-enjoying. But I was not the universe. I was totally free of it, independent of it and uninvolved in it. I spread everywhere, but formlessly and unencumbered by attachments, an eternal witness not bound by the universe. I was pure and intelligent consciousness, seeing all and knowing all but not depending on the universe for sustenance.
I felt light, free and unmoving, yet I was at all points, all at the same time. Witness to everything.
Uninvolved, free of emotions, free of thought, pure, and vast, I remained poised in eternity and in infinity, in quiet enjoyment; still, composed, calm, and in repose.”
