About ‘Unite With God’

“O Arjun! whenever virtue(dharma) declines and vice(adharma) predominates, I incarnate as an Avatar. In visible form I appear from age to age to protect the virtuous and to destroy evildoing in order to reestablish righteousness.”
[The Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 4, Verse 7-8]

There are many religions in the world. But the truths professed by every religion is the same. Time and time again God and His ambassadors descend down to our earthly realm to reestablish this truth or dharma, and save the world from spiritual darkness. This darkness, or ignorance is known by different names in different religious scriptures. Hindu scriptures refer to it as Maya or the cosmic delusion, and other scriptures refers to this force as Satan or Shaitaan. Nevertheless, this ‘evil’ force, like everything else in this creation, is also created by God only, as a part of His stupefying creation, for a special purpose. The human goal is to become free from this delusion and awaken to the Infinite Spirit of God! This is the grand play set up by the Cosmic Director, and, nevertheless, we are all part of this grand play and it is up to our free will how we play our role in here- are we going to succumb to the temporary temptations of delusion, or do we choose instead to turn inside, and behold that Infinite Divinity within us which we have lost to the limiting thickets of our self-created ego, and from how many births have we been ignorant like this? This inner inquiry would be quite unlikely, but the fact that a certain death is waiting for us only gives testimony to the temporary nature of this material creation and encourages more and more to the wise thinkers, to look beyond this earthly realm of existence.

Thankfully, just as the ancient scriptures bear witness to the temporary nature of material existence, they also give testimony to the eternal nature of the Soul- the individualized Spirit, which is in nature, one with God.

“God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him;..”
-The Bible

Identifying us more and more with this divine Self(the Soul) within us and lesser and lesser with the ego, which is a product of delusion, is the heroic journey that leads us to the realization of our eternal nature. This realization is not an ordinary achievement, but it is the grand goal of every person who seeks perfection. Why bother about only perfecting this life which is going to end anyway, why not conquer death itself? We know of so many great masters who took samadhi- i.e left their bodies at will! Not like the unprepared person who cannot do anything but watch his life taken forcefully when the time has come, when all his life he did know about the certain death that he awaits!

Such is the grandeur of the yogi who not only thinks beyond this temporary life, but also strives each and every day to befriend God Himself and thus secures eternity. This, according to the masters, is the way of highest wisdom.

“I face death every day-yes, just as surely as I boast about you in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
-The Bible

“The grave is either a garden from the Gardens of Paradise, or a pit from the pits of Hell.”
-The Quran

 ‘Take God, not life, seriously.’
– Paramhansa Yogananda

God’s plan of evolution is also quite dramatic. In total 24 thousand years of one Yuga Cycle, there is 12 thousand years of expansion or growth phase, and 12 thousand years of declination phase. This cycle depends on the well defined path taken by our solar system around the center of the Milky Way galaxy, with an added influence of another star which the sun takes as its dual and rotates around it(the dual star is not yet discovered by astronomers, but it will soon be discovered- in fact there are many researchers now who have tried to explain the uncommon phenomenon of precession of the equinox with the help of evidence of a dual star around which sun is revolving.

This cycle of evolution is already explained in the Vedas, but during the period of the last dark age of 1200 years, i.e the Kali Yuga of the Yuga cycle [period from 700 BC to 500 AD], errors started to creep into the works of sages like Kulluka Bhatta of the dark age, because of the influence of the dark age on the human intellect. Because of this error, many believed that the Kali Yuga lasts for 4 lakhs 32 thousand years, and we are now in the Kali Yuga!

However, the truth is that the Kali Yuga ended in 500 AD, i.e when the Ascending Kali yuga started, and which also ended in 1700s- this is when the Dwapar Yuga started. Now we are in the 318th year of the Dwapar Yuga(in 2018). The total length of Dwapar Yuga(Bronze Age) is 2400 years- so this is just the beginning. Thankfully, this is the growth phase, so there is going to be rapid development in human intellect for the next 10 thousand years!

This truth about the Yuga Cycle was revived by the great saint Swami Sri Yukteshwer, who is the guru of one of the great masters of modern times- Paramhansa Yogananda. Paramhansa Yogananda is the author of the greatest spiritual book of modern time- Autobiography of a Yogi. Swami Sri Yukteshwer points out the mistakes made by the sages of dark age and describes the actual Yuga Cycle clearly in his book, The Holy Science.

The Holy Science is not an ordinary book, but a modern scripture which was born as a result of Mahavtar Babaji, the paramguru(guru of guru) of Swami Sri Yukteshwer, requesting him to write a scripture which combines two great scriptures- The Bhagavad Gita from the East, and The Bible from the West!

Mahavtar Babaji is not an ordinary human, but He is an incarnation of God. His existence right now on this earth is a testimony to the eternal promise of God:

“O Arjun! whenever virtue(dharma) declines and vice(adharma) predominates, I incarnate as an Avatar. In visible form I appear from age to age to protect the virtuous and to destroy evildoing in order to reestablish righteousness.”

 

The Hindu Scriptures mention about the 10 incarnations of Lord Vishnu, of which history stands witness to 9 incarnations already. The 7th, 8th and 9th incarnations being Lord Ram who incarnated in the previous declining Treta Yuga(Silver Age), Lord Krishna who incarnated in the previous declining Dwapar Yuga(Bronze) to establish righteousness, and Lord Buddha who incarnated in the Kali Yuga and inspired Buddhism. According to the prophecy, the 10th incarnation(Lord Kalki) would come during the end of Kali Yuga. Since the Kali Yuga has ended in 500 AD, He has already come as promised. He is Mahavtar(the Great Avatar) Babaji. He is also known as Krishna-Babaji because He was Lord Krishna in a previous [8th incarnation]. The fact that Babaji was Lord Krishna in a previous incarnation was told by Paramhansa Yogananda to his disciple Swami Kriyananda. Kriyananda writes about this in his book ‘The New Path’.

The Mission of Lord Kalki

Prophecy says that Lord Kalki will come on a white horse and equipped with a fiery sword will kill those thieves and rogues who dared dress as kings. This and many other prophesies indicate one thing- the Kalki Avatar is going to ‘change the whole system’ by uprooting falsity in everything from its deeply grown roots and establish crystal clear truth- no confusions and imaginations- but the absolute, clear truth. In short, His mission is to completely uproot delusion from its very roots, and establish only the truth, which not only the practitioner will practice, but will actually experience the truth himself. He will not have to go ‘outside’ to any temple or church but will build the temple of God within his body.

Since the publishing of Autobiography of a Yogi a wave has already emerged in the world. It has got a more ‘personal’ touch, rather than an ‘institutionalized’ one. Someone’s spiritual authority will not be considered authentic only by the association with a certain institution or organization, but will directly depend on the actual inner attunement of that person with God, and God cannot be deceived, because He knows everything that you reveal, and also that you don’t reveal. He is the all-knowing. Slowly, those who falsely claim to be saints without no sign of ‘actual’ communion with God will be punished by Lord Kalki. Their only way of salvation will be to surrender to Him or His ‘army’- i.e the line of His sincere disciples, and get enlightened themselves, and only after the sanction through sincere inner attunement. Without sanction of Lord Kalki, no one can establish themselves as a spiritual authority. However, those who submit to Him in full devotion will be taken care of in rewarding ways, for God is the most compassionate and the most merciful.

Babaji has brought his fiery sword with Him. The sword of ‘Kriya Yoga’, which is the highest form of Yoga. The science of Kriya Yoga is extolled in many scriptures, including the Bhagavad Gita, and it is also encoded in the verse of The Bible. Babaji’s line of disciples initiate hundreds of thousands of disciples in Kriya Yoga every year. With Kriya Yoga technique, the human evolution is accelerated a thousand fold!

The message is very clear. God is not going to be found by merely outward religious activities, but by deep inner communion with Him. The esoteric practices of Meditation and Yoga are going to be highly extolled. For example, if someone is going to the temple merely for a formality, then God will not come to Him. But someone who has never gone to a temple, but calls out to God most sincerely with actual longing for Him, then God will come running into His heart.

Through ‘Unite With God’, I am delighted to echo the truths voiced by the Great Masters and share the joy of God-communion with you.

There is only one true religion- not Hindu or Christian or Muslim. But the essence of all these religions is only One, and that Essence is the one God, and none other!

In Divine Friendship,
Unite With God
