In Vedic religion or we can say in Hindu religion, the position of a spiritual master has been considered greater than that of God. In this relation, the sacred text, ‘Guru Geeta’ says:
Guru is Brahma - the creator, Guru is Vishnu - the preserver, and Guru is Maheshwar - the destroyer. The Guru is verily the Par-Brahman- the Supreme Lord. I bow down to the Guru.
- The Sacred Text, ‘Guru Geeta’
I am a follower of the ‘Nath’ sect. My Guru, the most revered, the most merciful Baba Shri Gangainath Ji Yogi, was an ‘Ayipanthi’ Nath Yogi. In Kaliyug (Dark Age), the ancient sage, Yogendra Shri Matsyendra Nath Ji has been considered the foremost Guru of the Nath sect. I will be going to the West by his orders to bring a revolution in spiritual knowledge.
India, at present, is completely drowned in ‘Tamas’. For the uprise of India, first of all, the rise of ‘Rajas’ is required. Practically, the first requirement of Indians is food and God comes second to it.
The Western world is now tired of living with all the material comforts. Today, there is no other country in the world that is as restless as the Western world. Today, they are looking only for peace. Peace can only be given by the God element. This is possible only by living according to the principle of the Hindu or Vedic religion. That is why I have received an order from the foremost Guru of ‘Kaliyug’ that my job is to especially awaken the Western world. It is only because of that command that now I will primarily be working in the Western world.
The 21st century is the time of complete evolution of mankind and only India knows the complete method of practical evolution. So, now the job of India has begun.
