Saiyasart – The knowledge of nothingness

The Saiyasart (literally translated: “knowledge about nothingness” or “knowledge of the void”) is a field of knowledge that deals with non-physical phenomena of all kinds.

These include forms of spirituality, meditation, magic and spiritual healing. It is also a part of the traditional free warrior knowledge. A modern spin off from Saiyasart can be found in the Yaan Meditation.

Fragments of Saiyasart were later adopted by Thai Buddhism (e.g. amulets, talismans and tattoos) other components were again ostracized as “black magic”.

In fact, this is neither a religion nor a form of belief, but a spiritual knowledge, which can be made accessible through critical self-awareness, self-discovery and logical deduction. One of the most important recommended learning principles of Saiyasart is: “Believe nothing, question everything”.

Because this attitude of mind is opposed to almost every form of belief, many religions and sometimes even social models, Saiyasart practitioners / Pahuyuth free warriors were often the target of social, political and religious persecutions in the past.

Saiyasart and Pahuyuth – two sides of a medal

The origin of Saiyasart, like Pahuyuth, goes back to the the ancient Glie warriors who lived around 2500 BC in the region of the Altai Mountains. When they defended themselves against the Chinese occupation, they discovered the basics of martial arts, Saiyasart and traditional healing.

Since then, Pahuyuth and Saiyasart have been in direct interaction, which can be seen for example in rituals such as the traditional teacher greeting or the teacher memorial day.

Magic Fighting

Pahuyuth free warriors were and often are said to use “magic fighting”, which makes them invulnerable, or with which they could curse their opponents. Legend has it that some can even fly through the air.

To our knowledge, all Pahuyuth free warriors adhere to the laws of physics and do push-ups like everyone else.

True is on the other hand, that by dealing with the non-physical aspects of combat, some astonishing effects and insights can occur.

A very simple example: Anyone who is involved in martial arts knows that certain attacks are sometimes simply not seen coming. Maybe because you are distracted or focused on something else. This is quite normal so far and happens to everyone (including us), because the perception and processing capacity of human consciousness is limited.

The question is: What if one had the ability to harness the sum of all conscious and unconscious perceptions in combat situations?

Saiyasart and Pahuyuth have always been in direct interaction with each other.

Magic fighting – is that possible?

Who or what is a Saiyasart practitioner?

A Saiyasart practitioner is a person who has acquired knowledge and certainty about Saiyasart and integrates this knowledge into his or her own everyday life. For example, by consciously dealing with psychological activity (emotions) in relation to oneself and others.

Advanced Saiyasart practitioners are also well versed or specialized in so-called “magic phenomena”, i.e. things that lie outside the explainable realm of others. In the Saiyasart, the term “magic” simply describes a knowledge advantage over others.

Usually there are three professional fields or specializations in which Saiyasart practitioners are active:

“Magical Natural Healers”

The most widespread field of work is called the “Magical Natural Healer”. It involves the targeted support of the natural self-healing functions of the human body in order to eliminate physical or psychological complaints based on unhealthy mental activity.

“Magical Shapers”

The second field of work is called “Magical Shaper”. These are activities and advice in the production, design and use of “magical objects”, such as amulets or talismans for example. Healing stones or gems can also fall into this category.

“Magical Practitioners”

The third field of work is called “Magical Practitioners”. It is about consulting and conflict resolution with regard to all problems that have to do with ghost phenomena, ghost occupations or the effects of magical actions (e.g. curses, voodoo, etc.).

How is Saiyasart taught?

The teaching of the Saiyasart is always based on self-awareness, self-discovery and logical deduction. This form is absolutely necessary, because an unchecked acquired knowledge is not real knowledge but only an accepted knowledge (a belief). The same principle also applies to martial arts.

The recommended basis for self-examination is first of all the knowledge about the functioning of one’s own sense organs (seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, touching), which includes both conscious and unconscious aspects. Understanding something usually requires proper perception – this applies to both biological (physical) and psychic (non-physical) perception.

The understanding of the so-called “magical senses” and the development of these abilities is again a recommended prerequisite for conscious communication with non-physical existences (e.g. spirits, spirit beings, vibrations), but also with animals, plants or trees.

The traditional Saiyasart knowledge only functions as a rough guide, whereby the element of “channeling” is often used in teaching in order to guarantee the greatest possible correctness and authenticity in the transmission of theoretical knowledge. In the course of development and training, the source for new knowledge shifts further and further, because independent communication with non-physical sources of information emerges.

The students must always find out for themselves whether all this is true or not and which exact insights and areas of application result from it. Saiyasart, as said before, is not faith, but knowledge – knowledge about nothingness.

Saiyasart in Yaan Meditation

Anyone who has read this blog article so far might have noticed that the Saiyasart is a rather complex and abstract field of knowledge.

Understanding this body of knowledge poses a challenge not to be underestimated for many (even for long-time Pahuyuth practitioners).

In order to make the introduction to the Saiyasart easier for everyone, the format of Yaan Meditation was developed.

The Yaan Meditation is a practice-oriented perception training which serves to bring unconscious sensory impressions (seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, touching) into consciousness.
