We can see that everything in the world is perishable. All of our saints
have said that HE is immortal. Without attaining him, absolute peace is impossible. Only by
attaining God, it is possible to have absolute peace and bliss. Without this, there is no
other way to cut the bondage of human being.
All our saints have said that only human life is the time
to attain salvation
. If the life due to intensity of ‘karmas’, even after
getting human life doesn’t start the journey towards its right destination,
then there can be nothing which can be more misfortunate than this. The
saints have clearly said about the world that it is only a vast form of God.
The human species is the highest state of God. That is why the saints have
said that along with the entire universe, all other ‘Lokas’ are within the
human body. The human body is the real temple, after entering which, it is
possible to attain God. This is the only way to reach that Supreme Power.
Without this, there is no other way to connect with that Supreme Power.
At this time, whatever methods of worships are prevalent in
the world, they are mostly extroverted. Only a few, talk about being
introverted, but they all are ways to enter the field of ‘Maya’ (the
illusory power of God). Some people talk about connecting with that Supreme
Power by breath regulation but none of them have compete knowledge about it.
Because of not belonging to this epoch, this method of worship is now
impossible to do. The principles explained by Patanjali and many other sages
in relation to Yama, Niyama, eating habits and life style are impossible to
practice in this age.
If out of millions of people, one man is partially
successful in it then what is the benefit of that? The earnings of this
field can only be used by the one who earns it. Apart from this, God has
created women in such a way that it is impossible for them to do this kind
of worship. Do women not have the right to salvation? According to the
arrangement of God, men and women both have an equal right to salvation
while living in this world. This way the worships of earlier epochs are not
possible in this epoch.
The wheel of time runs relentlessly. That is why change is
inevitable in all the things of the world. No one has the capability to stop
it. We can see how much the science has advanced in the physical world. This
is the truth and is correct. But there is no consciousness in this relation
in the spiritual world. Just like a non-living object, this world is lying
in a completely unconscious state. All the principles of Science are written
only after having been proved correct many times in the laboratory. Even
then, no student can become a doctor or an engineer by reading those books
until he himself proves those principles in the laboratory. This way, if the
students of Science are not allowed to see the face of laboratory and
efforts are made to make them doctors and engineers by making them read only
the books of these fields, it will be a complete failure. The laboratories
have always progressed in the field of Physical Science and new inventions
are made through research work and the principles of new inventions have
been noted down. This is the reason that physical science is about to reach
its ultimate limit.
Exactly contrary to this, almost all the laboratories of
Spiritual Science, due to not being able to maintain a balance with time and
the wheel of time, have been completely destroyed. At this time, all the
religious preachers of the world only have the books of the scientists of
the ancient Spiritual Science. In the absence of laboratories, all these
scriptures are meaningless.
scriptures, by keeping this knowledge alive, will not be able to benefit
So, until this Science is not promoted by testing through research, no
benefit can be derived merely by memorizing these texts like a parrot
because the treasure of all the knowledge is hidden within the man.
reason for all the progress made by the Physical Science to date is the
inspiration and efforts made by the man. So, Spiritual Science will have to
be found by man only by being introverted. Physical Science can give only
physical pleasures to man. These pleasures are temporary and transient.
Permanent happiness and peace are impossible to attain through these. Until
the Spiritual Science progresses as much as the Physical Science, the
prediction made by Maharishi Aurobindo about “heaven descending on earth”
will not come true.
Physical Science is the outcome of outer consciousness and
contrary to this, the realization of spiritual powers is possible only by
introverted spiritual practice. Physical Science is the product of these
spiritual powers so, until this power, brings this Scientific power which is
born from it, under its direct controland starts governing it, the
prediction made by Maharishi Aurobindo will not come true. Only Spiritual
power is capable of restricting the destructive play of Physical Science and
rest all other solutions are completely meaningless. Man is incapable of
curbing this destructive play by his intellectual skills. The artificial
peace mission run by the religious leaders is not going to be effective.
Physical Science is a truth. It will never obey the order
of any lies. Until its birth giver reveals itself and satisfies this power
with full proofs, it will not obey anyone. So, until the man of this world
becoming introverted, walks through the path that leads to that Supreme
Power, realizes Him, peace is impossible. This way, the moment the man of
this world connects with that Supreme Power, these physical powers will
with folded hands in front of him and will serve mankind by becoming its
India is the caretaker of the heart of the world. That is
why only through the people who are born on this land, that Supreme Power
will make the world aware of its power and establish peace. Our saints have
clearly described the path that leads to that goal. It is possible to reach
by the path of renunciation (Sannyasa Marg) and by the path of devotion
(Bhakti Marg). The Bhagwat Geeta clearly says that the path of ‘Sannyasa’ is
very difficult but by walking on the principle of ‘Nishkaam karma yoga’
(working without expectation) and with devotion, this love-filled man
certainly unites with that Supreme Power without any trouble.
Six Chakras are
described in the human body. A Yogi starts from the ‘Mooladhar chakra’. This
way after piercing the sixth chakra, he can cross the field of Maya (the
illusory power of God). This chakra is also known as ‘Agyachakra’ because
all the powers of the lower world of Maya work under the order of the power
which is above the ‘Agyachakra’, that is why it has been called
‘Agyachakra’. All the powers of Maya up to the Sixth Chakra are so strong
that none of them let the being to cross their boundary. That is why to
reach the goal through this path in this age, looks not only difficult but
But by walking on the principle of ‘Nishkaam Karma Yoga’,
by loving devotion to God, the being easily reaches his goal without any
problems. That is why, pronouncing this path as the best in the Bhagwat
Geeta, it directs to walk on this path. Due to lack of knowledge, the
religious teachers of this age while describing this path have created so
many complexities that the man has remained entangled in them. Sin, virtue,
charity, sacrifice, austerities, religion etc. have been described in such a
wrong way that man remains entangled in illusions.
Based on rituals, ostentation, jargon, superstition and
logic, such a face of spirituality is shown that he cannot find the right
path. This is the reason that such an easy work became impossible and, in
this way, people lost faith in religion. In the absence of results, this is
the condition of every work. Why will anyone do meaningless work? So, the
religious teachers of different religions are at fault for the loss of faith
in religion by the people of the world of this age. They made religion a
means of livelihood. This way when exploitation, injustice and atrocities
crossed its ultimate limit under the guise of religion, people revolted. It
is very saddening to see this condition of religion. In spite of all this,
the religious teachers are not taking pity. Even today they are applying new
tactics to rob people.
If a true spiritual master is found, the darkness
disappears very fast. I have already described a true Guru. Since a true
spiritual master is in direct contact with the Supreme Power that is why the
illusory power (Maya) of the world becomes a slave and stands with folded
hands in front of him. A being that connects with such a Guru gets freed
from the effects of ‘Maya’ spontaneously. This way by Guru’s grace, piercing
the ‘agyachakra’, he starts his journey because by Guru’s grace he gets
freed from the entanglements of ‘Maya’ unintentionally and enters the
attractive boundary of the Supreme Power and this way he meets only helpful
powers on his path ahead. As he progresses, attraction increases and the
speed of his progress also increases. The distance of time cannot affect the
human being in these spiritual regions so it doesn’t take much time to
connect with the Supreme power. The obstacles exist only up to ‘Agyachakra’.
By connecting with a true Guru all the obstacles vanish. This way by
connecting with that Supreme Power, the human being is freed from the cycle
of birth and death.
There are mainly
three regions (Lokas) beyond ‘Agyachakra’- ‘Satlok’, ‘Alakhlok’ and
‘Agamlok’. The human being merges with the Supreme Power after reaching the
‘Agamlok’. Here bliss and peace stays eternally. The world created by
Maya is seen
because the organisms of the world are operated by Maya and hence are not
able to see
it. Only the inner vision is capable of seeing it.
As the being progresses spiritually, the lower ‘Lokas’ and
their powers can be clearly seen. Human body is divided into three parts-
Physical body, Subtle body and Causal Body. Causal Body has the entire
record of the present life from birth till death. The future life incidents
can be seen by man like TV scenes after entering the Causal body. All these
three bodies are within the limit of Maya
(illusory power of God), consisting of three attributes.
The soul lies within it. The Super soul is a mass of power
whose brilliance is much more than billions of suns. Its one ray is called a
soul because it is part of that complete Supreme Power so there is no
difference between ‘soul’ and Super soul. Once a human being realizes the
soul then with its support, he reaches its original place that is Super
soul. It is not possible to realize God in the field of Maya. That is why
without piercing the ‘agyachakra’, this job is impossible. Physical body,
subtle body and the Causal body and soul and the Super soul are merged with
each other in such a way that it is impossible to see them separately. For
example: sugarcane has two parts. The inner part has juice hidden within it.
But only the outer hard part is visible. When pressed the juice comes out.
By looking at the juice, we cannot know its taste. That it is sweet can be
known only after tasting it. God is the power that gave the sweetness to
that juice. This way the three parts up to the juice are like the three
parts of the body. The sweetness within it is the soul and the power because
of which this sweetness has come is Super soul. We cannot know the things
within the sugarcane by merely looking at it. This example is just an effort
to help you understand. The truth is a subject of direct realization. Its
knowledge can be gained by testing it in the laboratory of Spiritual
When the religion
disappears from the world, immorality becomes prevalent and the ‘Tamas’
(dark forces) sets in the world firmly, at that time, the man
through whom the Supreme Power spreads its divine pure light, is the true
Guru. Only one true Guru is capable of removing the darkness from the entire
world. From this it can be understood, what a Guru is. That is why all the
scriptures of Hindu religion have said that the glory of Guru is beyond
The physical pleasures are temporary and are a play of Maya
to confuse. The
things which give pleasure in childhood don’t give in teenage. Some other
things are the
reason for happiness in youth and some other things give a sense of pleasure
The situation changes again in old age. In the last stage of his life, the
regrets that he wasted the human life for false pleasures. The description
made by C.
Rajagopalachari in his last moments about these pleasures is very apt. The
stays the same at all times. That pleasure can be attained only by
connecting with the
Supreme Power. So, the man should always make efforts to seek the truth. God
is always ready
considerately to hold him by his hand. After reaching such a stage, it is
possible to unite
with the Supreme Power by crossing the ocean of life with slight efforts.
This kind of bliss
and peace is eternal. Once a man attains it, he stays in this state
eternally and gets freed
from the cycle of birth and death. This state is known as salvation.
