FOREWORD, Beyond the Himalayas , Dr Murdo MacDonald Bayne
To you, the reader of this book, I want to say, this book is not written merely as a history of my travels in Tibet, neither is it meant to be a display of words to reveal the Truth, for the Truth cannot be revealed in words. Neither should it be read from an intellectual point of view so as to give pleasure to the mind; nor is it meant to give you a new religion or a new authority or belief. It is meant to open up, to awaken the inner Being that is closed up, asleep, to become aware of the powers and possibilities of the Real Self, so that you are no longer the little personality with a limited life, but a centre of Universal action and in direct contact with Cosmic Forces. Then you will no longer be the unwilling plaything of fate but a conscious Master of Nature, liberated from the imprisoned smallness and sufferings of the gross human
It will take you beyond every mental idealistic culture of ideas and ideals belonging to the mind, which are only half-truths. It shows you how to bring the supramental power of the Divine Consciousness into the
ignorant mind, transforming the mind and body, thereby creating a Divine Life in matter. To the critic I would say, do not criticise anything you know nothing about. If your beliefs prevent you from accepting what I say, you will know why by reading this book with an open mind.
To the dogmatist, this book can only help you when you understand what dogma is and how you have acquired it.
To the reviewer, do no review this book if you do not understand yourself - otherwise it will expose your lack of wisdom. To the earnest seeker, I do not want you to accept what I say or it may become another belief. A belief only hinders the revealing of the Truth. Believing or disbelieving, accepting or rejecting, will not give you understanding. Cleanse your mind first by discerning impersonally all you have read or heard, and you will find a silence that is not of time in which the Truth will be revealed to you.
To the atheist, you think you are a disbeliever but you have just another belief which prevents you from understanding. Search your mind and see what formulations you have created there; then you will realise how ignorant you are of the Real Truth.
To those who are caught up in the various philosophies, religious organisations, etc., I would say, examine what these are first before you read this book or you will be merely reading you own conditioning into it. Free your mind from all fear, superstition and belief, and then there will be be an immediate transformation, for the Truth is Eternal and Ever-present in the Now.
Immediately you get rid of your mental formulations, your imitations, by
understanding what they are and how they have come about, the Truth will be revealed instantly. Truth is not a matter of time or becoming.
Becoming is always tomorrow---this is going away from Reality-Truth. Being now, is Truth. If Truth is not Now, it will never be to-morrow. Living in the Now, moment to moment, this is Truth
