Why is there so much noise in India about the 21st century?

There is a lot of discussion going on between the ruling and the opposition party about the status of India in the world in the 21st century. Everybody considers only scientific progress as a sign of progress. If only scientific achievements were the basis of peace and happiness in the world then there should have been complete peace in the western countries but the situation there is just the opposite.

  • The life of people is so restless and stressful that 80 to 85 percent of people have to resort to some sort of tranquilizer to sleep. Sleep is something that has been gifted by God for free for every living being, yet it is not in their destiny. In the absence of mental peace, a stressful mind spreads misdeeds in the world. The scientific knowledge given by God is being used more for destructive purposes than constructive.

  • Germany, which pushed the world into two world wars, is most worried today. Its condition is just opposite to the rest of the world. In the entire world, the birth rate is increasing but in Germany, it is decreasing. The intellectuals of that country are very worried about this situation. According to them if this condition continues then German blood would disappear from the world. The situation is the same with other countries too. There is no peace in the world.

  • In such a scenario, if our scientists consider only scientific growth as a sign of progress then it will be a big mistake then why is the Supreme Power getting so much noise made about the 21st century? Maharishi Aurobindo said that after getting independence, what should be the form of India before the world, is a more important subject. Even if India expands itself and stands equal to other countries from a scientific point of view, it is not going to make any difference to the world.

  • In this way, material progress is not going to succeed in establishing peace in the world. The man of ‘Dwapar’ age was the most advanced from a scientific point of view. Even then the epic war of ‘Mahabharat’ happened and the world became bereft of scientists and brave soldiers. If a true spiritual consciousness doesn’t come into the world, then to imagine a condition of the world different from the one that happened after the ‘Mahabharat’ war is only a figment of imagination. The predictions made by the saints and the religious scriptures of the world are indicating that the Supreme Power has descended in the human form as ‘Avatar’ to establish happiness and peace in the world.

  • With its gradual development, this power will attract mankind from all over the world by the end of this century. According to my direct experience, this power will influence the entire India by 1993. After this, in the coming years, it will rule the world.

  • At this time, Christianity is the biggest religion, followed by Islam and Buddhism.

  • Before leaving the world, the founder of Christianity, Jesus Christ, said,
    Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: in regard to sin, because they do not believe in Me; about righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer; and about judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned. I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. All that belongs to the Father is mine; this is why I said, ‘The Spirit will tell you whatever he receives from me’.

    - Jesus

  • Apart from the above, many other saints who were the disciples of Jesus have predicted that by the end of the 20th century churches will cease to exist.

  • There is a lot of confusion in the Christian world in relation to the predictions made by Jesus and other saints. In a hush-hush voice, the evangelists accept it and say, “There are some destructive elements who predict that the churches will cease to exist by the end of the 20th century. This is a picture of an old man who is about to die but there is no such danger for the people of God’s family. God gave HIS only son to us so that we can live together. He has paid a heavy price for his family. I do not agree that God will not complete the work that He has started.”

  • From the above, it becomes evident that the Christian world is fearful of the predictions made by Jesus and other saints of Christianity. In relation to this, one day I enquired from a Christian woman about the things told by Jesus to Yohana to which she replied that she doesn’t know anything about it and that she can help me connect with a pastor. Then she said that nowadays, every Sunday, after the prayers the pastor reads the instructions received from the main church. The instructions are- “The Christian religion is going through a very tough phase at this time. Our religion is going to be attacked. If any religious teacher of either Christian religion or of any other religion gives any instructions, do not listen to them. Whatever instructions you receive from the pastor of the church, you should obey that. Protect your religion in this difficult time.” I asked her, “Do you people perceive any evident crisis?” She said that she doesn’t feel so.

  • Next is the Islamic religion. Mohammad Sahab, the founder of this religion, has not written anything beyond the 14th century. According to the followers of this religion, the time in the future is not going to be in favour of this religion. In this way, both of these religions are moving towards their decline.

  • The third religion is Buddhism. This religion has been completely destroyed in the place where it was born. Buddhism and Jainism, both these religions do not believe in God. These religions have flourished only due to the support of the ruling power. When the Sun of ‘Sanatan Dharm’ will rise, the light of all these twinkling stars (religions) will disappear.

  • In the 21st century, the ‘Sanatan Dharm’ will rule the world. In this regard, Maharishi Aurobindo while announcing the descent of the Supreme Power as ‘Avatar’ has said,
    On 24 November 1926, Shri Krishna descended into the physical. Shri Krishna is not the supramental light. The descent of Shri Krishna would mean the descent of the Overmind Godhead, preparing, though not itself actually, the descent of Supermind and ANANDA. Krishna is ‘Anandmaya’. He supports the evolution through the Overmind leading it towards the Ananda.

    - Maharishi Aurobindo

    While describing the change that will occur in the world as a result of the gradual development of this Supreme Power, Maharishi Aurobindo says,

  • "Asia is the peacekeeper of the world. It is going to cure the diseases created by Europe. Europe has progressed a lot in the field of physical science, controlled politics, industries, business, etc. Now, the job of India begins. It will have to bring all these under the command of spiritual power and establish heaven on earth."

  • The nervousness of all the religions of the world and the predictions made by the saints of all the religions indicate that a spiritual power is about to appear in the world which will attract the entire mankind towards itself, will inspire them towards peace and bliss, and support and control development.

  • There is a proverb in English- ‘Coming events cast their shadows before them’, this is the reason that even in India people of all classes are saying something or the other regarding the 21st century. They themselves are unable to understand why they are doing so. The Supreme Power is making everyone dance to its tune and is making them function according to its will. The man of this era has lost his senses due to the arrogance of his economical power. When the Supreme Power, which is brighter than millions of suns put together, will reveal itself before the world, everyone’s arrogance will be shattered.
