    The next step in evolution will take the man to higher and greater consciousness and he will start solving those problems that have confounded and troubled him since he began to think about individual perfection and ideal society. So far, this has been a personal thought and hope that has caught the attention of visionary thinkers of India as well as the West.

    The difficulties of this path are far more difficult than any other field but the difficulties are made to be conquered and if this is the will of the Supreme Power then they will surely be overcome. If this evolution has to happen and since this will occur only by the growth of the soul and the inner consciousness, this can be initiated only by India. Although its field of activity will the entire world but the core movement will be done by India.

    - Maharishi Aurobindo

  • The revolutionary and visionary Maharishi Aurobindo had foreseen the time when India would lead the world in terms of spirituality as well as worldly activities.

  • Maharishi Aurobindo has clearly said:

  • "Even if everything gets destroyed, I will still wait for the creation beyond the destruction. I don’t get baffled by whatever is happening in the world today. I knew that the events will take this form. Since I never accepted the talks of the intellectual idealists, I am never disappointed too."

  • In the olden times, when God used to come on earth as Avatar, demons also accompanied HIM and they used to oppose HIM in everything. We have seen this custom being followed that until they are completely annihilated demons did not accept the power of God in any age. So, the end of this age also will be likewise.

  • In this regard, the famous foreseer of France, Mr. Nostradamus, has clearly described in his book- Centuries “The victory of the religion having the name of an ocean will begin.” I feel the indication in Century 10 Quatrain 86 is towards the end of Muslims.

  • The prediction made in Century 1 Quatrain 50 is quite noteworthy,

  • “In the peninsula where three oceans meet, a spiritual person will take birth who will make the nations bow down by the power of his religion. It would be madness to try to stop him in Asia.” (Century 1 quatrain 50)

  • Those people who tried to destroy the Hindu culture during their reign, will be annihilated by the Hindus and ‘Sanatan Dharm’ will spread in the entire world.

  • In this context, it is written in Century,

  • “That Indian leader with the help of Jews will move towards Rome and its allies, their warships will go beyond Libya and will move in the direction of the death of those who read the Bible.”

  • Muslims say that Egyptians worship idols. According to the Century, Egypt and Israel will be India’s allies in the third world war. According to the Century, communism will end in Russia and both Russia and America will become friends with India. India will lead the third world war and these two superpowers will side with him.

  • In this way, in the 21st century, India will again enter into its golden age and establish peace in the world. In this relation, many saints in the world have made predictions. A few days before his death, Jesus Christ, the founder of Christianity, had made a prophecy that is clearly described in the Bible in the 'The New Testament' St. Mark 13:1 to 13:33.

  • 1.

    And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what building are here!

  • 2.

    And Jesus answering said unto him, seest thou these great buildings? There shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

  • 3.

    And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately.

  • 4.

    Tell us, when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled?

  • 5.

    And Jesus answering them began to say, take heed lest any men deceive you.

  • 6.

    For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

  • 7.

    And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars; see that ye be not troubled; For all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

  • 8.

    For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom and there shall be famines and pestilences, and earthquakes in diverse places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.

  • 9.

    But take heed to yourselves; for they shall deliver you up to councils, and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten. And ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.

  • 10.

    And the gospel must first be published among all nations.

  • 11.

    But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate, but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye; for it is not ye that speak, but the holy Ghost.

  • 12.

    Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.

  • 13.

    And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake, but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

  • 14.

    But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:

  • 15.

    And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house:

  • 16.

    And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment.

  • 17.

    But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

  • 18.

    And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter.

  • 19.

    For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.

  • 20.

    And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.

  • 21.

    And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not:

  • 22.

    For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.

  • 23.

    But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.

  • 24.

    But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,

  • 25.

    And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.

  • 26.

    And then shall they see the son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.

  • 27.

    And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.

  • 28.

    Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near:

  • 29.

    So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors.

  • 30.

    Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done.

  • 31.

    Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

  • 32.

    But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.

  • 33.

    Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.

  • In this regard, according to my direct experience, I can only say that the prediction made by Maharishi Aurobindo regarding the descent of Bhagwan Shri Krishna on earth on 24 November 1926 is completely true. The descent of God clearly means the end of the 'Tamsik' forces. What has been said by Bhagwan Shri Krishna in the 32nd verse of the 11th chapter in the Bhagwat Geeta, the same is going to happen in the third world war.

  • śhrī-bhagavān uvācha
    kālo ’smi loka-kṣhaya-kṛit pravṛiddho
    lokān samāhartum iha pravṛittaḥ
    ṛite ’pi tvāṁ na bhaviṣhyanti sarve
    ye ’vasthitāḥ pratyanīkeṣhu yodhāḥ (11:32)

    - Bhagwan Shri Krishna

    The Supreme Lord said: I am mighty Time, the source of destruction that comes forth to annihilate the worlds. Even without your participation, the warriors arrayed in the opposing army shall cease to exist.

    yadā yadā hi dharmasya glānir bhavati bhārata
    abhyutthānam adharmasya tadātmānaṁ sṛijāmyaham (4:7)
    paritrāṇāya sādhūnāṁ vināśhāya cha duṣhkṛitām
    dharma-sansthāpanārthāya sambhavāmi yuge yuge (4:8)

    - Bhagwan Shri Krishna

    Bhagwad Geeta (7th and 8th verse of the fourth chapter)

    Whenever there is a decline in righteousness and an increase in unrighteousness, O Arjun, at that time I manifest Myself on earth. To protect the righteous, to annihilate the wicked, and to re-establish the principles of ‘Dharma’ I appear on this earth, age after age.

  • The ‘Avatars’ have been descending on the holy land of India since time immemorial. Jesus Christ also has given an indication in this regard in St. Matthew 24:27- “For as the lightening cometh out of the east and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the son of man be.”
