It is not uncommon for Sri Prem Baba to draw thousands of disciples to his lectures, workshops and retreats, which promise to help walking the path of what is called self-knowledge. A scholar of psychology and yoga, Sri Prem Baba is a humanitarian leader, spiritual master and founder of the global movement Awaken Love, which seeks to elevate human values to awaken loving consciousness. Baba also spreads his knowledge through books. His last one, “Propósito – A Coragem de Ser Quem Somos” (“Purpose – The Courage to Be Who We Are”), published by Sextante, has since a few weeks been on bestselling lists in Brazil.

In this book, the guru focuses on how love can influence the direction of people’s lives, and on the structure of our society. Additionally, he devotes much of the book to how, in his view, ancestors influence the life of each individual. The primarily spiritual relationship with parents and grandparents would be directly responsible for the reality in which people find themselves, impacting even the way they deal with work, money and the gifts and talents they develop throughout life. I found the idea curious and sought out Baba so he could go deeper into this theory:


“Our relatives and ancestors are the characters of this story and therefore represent a fundamental part in the formation of our physical and psychic structure.”


“We humans, as evolving beings, carry marks or impressions in our system (body, mind, spirit), that are generated by our thoughts, words and actions. Our cellular memory is imprinted with records from the past that give rise to what, in the present moment, manifests in our lives. These records translate into what we inherit, positive or negative, and make up what we may call karma or personal history…

“Our relatives and ancestors are the characters of this story and therefore represent a fundamental part in the formation of our physical and psychic structure.” This means that, even though they are not physically present, our ancestors are constantly influencing our attitudes and choices. Just as a seed within itself carries certain information that translates into potentials or limitations for its development, the human being also carries predispositions that determine how it will move in the world,” explains the guru.

Finally, Baba orients people to seek harmony with the past and to seek self-knowledge, to stop suffering from these influences. “Healing is only possible through understanding and forgiveness. Therefore, as we evolve in the process of purification, and become capable of forgiving and thanking all members of our family constellation, we are ready to move from human consciousness to divine consciousness. In other words, we are freed from the past. But this does not mean that we fail to honor our roots, quite the contrary! We accept and re-signify that which was formerly seen as negative and thus transform poison into nectar. “

According to Baba, it is also possible to say that our well-being is closely linked to how we relate to the past. “If we still carry hurts and resentments; if we still feed pacts of revenge, or if we do not accept certain aspects of our past, we will inevitably be thrown into suffering. Every negative repetition that manifests itself in our lives, whether in the form of an illness or a failure, is a symptom of a contamination; it is synonymous with points of hatred in the system.”

To avoid this situation, he recommends a work of “inner purification”, otherwise our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health will inevitably be compromised. “Purification is synonymous with healing. It is the name I give to the process of integrating the parts of our personality with that which we have not been able to reach an agreement. This process involves a profound internal transformation, because it enables us to free ourselves from our conditioning and limiting beliefs that up to now has determined the way we move in the world.”
