DIALOGUE: THE VOICE OF BABAJI

Kriya Yoga

You’ll not die, mustn’t die and can’t die. This reality, if accepted, will put an finish to the materialists’ mad race for energy and bodily enjoyment and make all search Babaji, the everlasting mystic bliss. You refers back to the atman, the everlasting Spirit.

“The sensible mourn neither for the useless nor for the dwelling. I, you and the assembled kings have lived and can reside always. Jivatman, the dweller on this physique passes by childhood, youth and previous age after which with the identical ease into one other physique by the door of dying, therefore the sensible aren’t deceived by the phenomenon of dying.”

“Arjuna! Bear warmth and chilly and pleasure and ache as they’re ephemeral, being depending on the senses. This serene existence will result in immortality.”

“The sensible know that if Fact is non-existent, it can’t be created and whether it is existent, it could actually by no means stop to be. It’s changeless and pervades the Universe.”

“Our bodies die, however the Fact, which possesses the physique is everlasting and indestructible. That is the Atman. It’s and not using a starting and an finish and unchanging perpetually. How can it slay or be slain? Do not dream that you just kill

the Atman. It solely sheds our bodies like worn-out clothes and dons new ones. It isn’t wounded by weapons, burned by hearth, dried by wind and wetted by water. Then again, it’s the being of being, changeless and everlasting, as it’s past the senses and the thoughts, it isn’t topic to modification.”

“All that’s born should die. Rebirth is definite for the useless. Therefore, don’t grieve.”

“Some have realized this Atman in all its marvel, some converse of it and others have heard about it. Whereas a number of others although instructed about it, don’t perceive a phrase.” (Bhagavad Gita, II.12-37).

Thus, Lord Krishna preached the Gospel of everlasting Atman to his devotee Arjuna on the battlefield of Kurukshetra. If this Atman, the Spark of Divinity in Man, is realized and made the premise of human existence, all sorrows will vanish and nothing however peace (shanti) will stay. When this Jivatman, the human spirit, contacts the Paramatman, the Common Spirit, It turns into the Holy Spirit or Ghost. If one attains this exalted state, one needn’t concern dying for the Holy Ghost can materialize itself wherever at will. All this isn’t fiction. For instance Jesus Christ, the Son, got here from the Father, the Brahman and arose after the crucifixion, because the Holy Ghost who appeared not solely earlier than the direct disciples, but additionally earlier than different saints, like the well-known German Catholic stigmatist Therese Neumann, and Mahatma Ram Das of India. One other eminent incarnation who has attained this State is Babaji, reviver of KRIYA which is one more identify for Raja Yoga.

Yoga is an historical science of God-realization resulting in the union of the Jivatman with the Paramatman. Yoga appears to have been practiced even by the Dravidians, the pre-Aryan inhabitants of India. There may be some proof to indicate that the Dravidians worshipped the lingam, the image which represents Shiva, the third member of the Hindu Trinity, the King of Yogis. Then got here the good Aryan invasion. They got here to overcome, solely to be conquered and to be step by step assimilated. Clearly the Aryans will need to have discovered the science of Yoga from the Dravidians and made their very own unique contribution to it. There’s a clear reference within the Hindu scriptures (Bhagavad Gita, IV.1-2), that Yoga was taught to Vivasvat, an illuminary who handed it on to Manu, the Hindu Moses. He instructed Ikshvaku, the founding father of the Photo voltaic dynasty and thus, it was discovered by succeeding royal sages. As Sri1 Aurobindo has clearly acknowledged, that no nation has or can dominate the world eternally. Time has witnessed the rise and fall of many Roman Empires and in all ages some nation or different has been within the limelight. India has had its flip. Throughout such an age, which can be referred to as the satya yuga or Golden Age of that exact nation, the attribute nationwide traits dominate the present. Yoga will need to have been practiced extensively although not overtly when saintly kings like Rajarishi Janaka dominated the land. However for daily there should be an evening and India was quickly overwhelmed by a darkish materialistic age. To reduce the misuse of the highly effective science of Yoga throughout this time, it was rightly made inaccessible by the good exponents. For someday it was even misplaced and needed to be revived by a terrific Grasp.

Within the dvapara yuga, Lord Krishna undoubtedly taught the key science of Yoga to Arjuna (Bhagavad Gita, IV.27-29). Then got here sage Patanjali, who made the science systematic by composing aphorisms, which represent one in every of six vital methods of Hindu Philosophy. Prophets like Elijah, Jesus and Kabir have used a method just like the Raja Yoga of Patanjali, who truly makes use of the time period Kriya Yoga. When India got here into her personal there was a gradual renaissance and nice mystics like Babuji Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, Sri Aurobindo, Mahatma Gandhi and Babaji got here to the forefront. The contribution of Babaji on this nationwide awakening lies in re-discovering and clarifying the misplaced strategy of Yoga, which he re-named merely KRIYA. It is a treasured gem within the crown of India’s cultural heritage.

Lifetime of Kriya Babaji

One advantageous day within the nineteenth century, a lonely pilgrim was seen frantically climbing the steep cliff resulting in an virtually inaccessible ledge, in a sacred Himalayan area sanctified to this present day by the tapas and presence of nice saints. The valiant soul had been looking for months with unabated enthusiasm for his paranmukta, who had conquered time and dying. Clearly goaded on by an unseen Drive, he managed to scramble to a lofty, flat ledge, the place he discovered his cynosure, an immortal Youth of twenty-five. He was fair-skinned with an exquisite, sturdy, luminous physique of medium top and construct. He had lengthy lustrous copper-colored hair, darkish calm glowing yogic eyes and a attribute broad nostril and held a danda (bamboo employees). In brief, he was a youthful duplicate of his favourite and foremost disciple, Lahiri Mahasaya.

The unusual intruder entered the circle of devotees, which included Swami Kebalananda and a few American saints. He spoke with reverent instinct: “Sir, you should be the good Babaji,” and begged to be accepted as a disciple. The nice Grasp was as silent and as inflexible because the rock on which he sat. He was testing the aspirant, however, AUM! it turned out to be the straw that broke the camel’s again. The pilgrim’s persistence was exhausted and threatened to commit suicide, if Babaji’s steering to achieve the Divine purpose was to not be accessible to him. “Achieve this,” was Babaji’s calm, unruffled reply. The worthy aspirant rose to the event and jumped down the rocky chasm to satisfy with sure dying. This sad improvement shocked and surprised the group of devotees, as they weren’t conscious of the truth that the Satguru was merely finishing up the traditional inflexible

injunction of Yoga, which calls for that the aspirant is ready to sacrifice and dedicate his life for the belief of God by yogic meditation.

“Convey the physique,” the command of Babaji broke the grave-like silence of the sacred group. Some hastened to meet the order and the mangled mass of flesh and bone lay at his toes.

“Now he’s match to be accepted,” calmly spoke the Satguru and touched the stays along with his holy fingers. Marvel of marvels! Surprise of wonders! Miracle of miracles! The aspirant sprang to life and fell prostrate on the Lotus Toes of Satguru Deva. “Loss of life shall not contact you once more.” He was beaming with love for his new youngster who had change into immortal inside a number of hours by his Divine grace. It takes generations of sadhana for strange people to achieve that exalted stage. Babaji appeared to be merciless solely to be form.

“Shifting camp and employees (dera danda uthao),” the musical voice of the Grasp rang out the acquainted command. The entire circle, together with the resurrected chela, dematerialized and disappeared from the ledge. This astral means was one of many strategies utilized by Babaji to shift from crag to crag, within the holy area of Badrinath. He has been dwelling right here for hundreds of years, as an lively witness of the sluggish however regular evolutionary progress of mankind in the direction of the attainment of perfection by the mystic path of Kriya.

Little was identified, of the lifetime of the imperfect bodily body of Kriya Babaji. None earlier than had dared to ask him these trifling, although fascinating particulars. All we have been permitted to know is his deep lasting religion within the emancipation of mankind by Kriya. The life historical past of Babaji is known as a historical past of his international mission, which is aware of no destruction of creeds, sects or nationalities. Within the ninth century, Acharya Shankara, the well-known monist, accomplished his gurukulavasa beneath Govinda Bhagavatpada and went to Banaras, the center of Hindustan. There Babaji materialized to provoke him into the mysteries of Kriya Yoga. (This occasion was described by the Grasp himself to Lahiri Mahasaya and Swami Kebalananda).

Within the medieval interval there was a non secular upheaval in India, which culminated within the rule of the Hindu-Muslim emperor, Akbar, the Nice. Throughout this period many eminent saints adorned completely different components of India. Of those, Kabirdas, the Grasp Yogi of Banaras, was one. It had been a thriller to the author, how this saint might have been one of many biggest yogis when his mantra guru was solely a bhakta. The actual fact is, he was initiated by Babaji, within the fifteenth century. All these clearly present that the age of the Grasp exceeds many centuries.

The nineteenth century was a “red-letter epoch” within the historical past of India. It marked the start of the trendy renaissance with the primary battle of Indian independence. The time was ripe to unfold the exalted Gospel of Kriya, far and broad. The worthy soul chosen for the aim was his favourite disciple, Lahiri, as he referred to as him.

The love of Babaji for Lahiri Mahasaya was deathless and deep. In a single incarnation, Lahiri spent a few years along with his Grasp, primarily within the cave of Drongiri Mountain, however was pressured by his previous actions to shuffle off his mortal coils and lose sight of his Satguru. Babaji, being a perfected Being, was capable of observe him, even within the life past dying. After guarding him like a mom cat by thick-and-thin, he had the enjoyment of seeing his disciple full the torturous womb-life and be born, because the child of Multakashi and Gaur Mohan Lahiri, within the Nadia district, Bengal on September 30, 1828. He was named Shyama Charan Lahiri. When he buried himself within the sands of Nadia, on the age of 4 within the vesture of a yogi, his guru in life, dying and after was watching him. Thus, for greater than three a long time, Babaji guided and patiently waited for his beloved disciple to return to his fold. Even his cave, asana blanket and bowl have been stored clear by his unexcelled Satguru!

After thirty-three years of worldly household life the good second arrived. At the moment Lahiri Mahasaya was working as a authorities accountant within the Army Engineering Division at Danapur. Babaji tapped his superior officer and a telegram was despatched from the primary workplace transferring Lahiri Mahasaya to Ranikhet, a brand new military submit within the Himalayas. With a servant, he took thirty days to finish the arduous journey of 5 hundred miles by tonga. Luckily, the workplace duties have been mild and he had ample time to roam within the sacred jungles, in quest of nice saints. One afternoon when he was rambling, he was shocked past description to listen to a distant voice beckoning him by identify. Strolling shortly he climbed Drongiri Mountain and reached a stage clearing the place he was welcomed affectionately by a stranger, who seemed bodily to be his mirror-image-reflection. He rested in one of many tidy caves, however was not capable of acknowledge his saintly Host. A few years of separation and layers of latest experiences had shaped a thick overburden on his previous reminiscences.

References to his favourite woolen-seat and the familiarity of the grotto didn’t assist him. Lastly, he was struck gently on the brow and directly the pleasant impressions of his earlier start got here to the forefront. With pleasure, Lahiri Mahasaya acknowledged Babaji, who narrated how he had adopted him all these years.

Obeying his Guru’s mandate, he drank a bowl of oil and retired for the evening to the rocky financial institution of the river, Gogash, the place he was by no means affected by the biting Himalayan chilly, the waves of the river or the howling of jungle beasts. At midnight, a companion guided him with heat garments to a grand palace particularly materialized to appease and quench his unconscious earthly want. There, surrounded by different disciples, he was initiated into Kriya Yoga by the good Babaji, in whose very hand burned the initiating sacrificial hearth. After daybreak, when he stated that he felt hungry, he was requested to shut his eyes. On opening them, he discovered that the marvelous palace had vanished and the celebration was seated close to the identical previous caves. Babaji ordered him to place his hand right into a magic bowl to get the meals he wanted. When he looked for water the identical bowl met his wants.

The identical day, as he was seated on a blanket, Babaji blessed him. By touching his head, Lahiri attained the bliss of nirvikalpa samadhi, which lasted for seven steady days. On the final day, he fell on the toes of his Grasp and craved for permission to stick with him all the time. Babaji persuaded him to return residence to steer the lifetime of a super householder yogi with inside renunciation. Babaji spoke to him at size about his duties as a Guru of Kriya Yoga. The rigorous situation of full inside renunciation, with a purpose to obtain Kriya initiation, was emphasised. At this stage, the softhearted Lahiri Mahasaya pleaded for leisure of this safeguard. Babaji was form sufficient to allow him to offer initiation freely, to all humble seekers. Subsequent morning, the lucky disciple half

heartedly took go away to meet the mission. The Grasp consoled him by consenting to return to him, every time he was referred to as.

Lahiri was welcomed on the workplace after an absence of ten days and shortly a letter from the pinnacle workplace re-transferred him to Danapur, referring to the primary switch, as a mistake. The kriyaban (Kriya yogi) alone knew the driving drive behind these occasions. On path to Danapur, he spent a number of days with some Bengalis at Moradabad. The host lamented on the absence of actual saints in India and with an excessive amount of zeal, Lahiri Mahasaya narrated his latest expertise within the Himalayas. It was dismissed as daydream and so, to persuade them, he determined to indicate them his Grasp. In a lonely darkish room with two blanket seats, he prayed to Babaji who got here with an offended look, as he had been summoned for a trifle.

Lahiri Mahasaya apologized and urged him to remain to create religion within the minds of those people. The sort Grasp consented, however acknowledged that he would come thereafter, solely when wanted and never every time referred to as. One member of the celebration referred to as the luminous Determine mass-hypnotism, however this doubt was cleared, for Babaji allowed them to the touch his sacred physique and he ate halva earlier than he left. Useless so as to add, this incident led to a revolution within the outlook of the spectators.

Lahiri Mahasaya lived for years in Banaras with out a lot publicity, with a purpose to discharge his responsibility. Disciples and devotees step by step streamed into his residence to take a seat at his toes. Thus, got here Maitra, Abhoya, A. Gafoor Khan, Brinda Bhagat, Swami Bhaskarananda Sarasvati, Balananda Brahmachari, the Maharajah of Banaras and his son, Maharajah Jotinra Mohan, Abnash Babu, Sri and Srimati Bhagavati Charan Ghosh, Kashi Moni, Swami Keshabananda, Panchanon Bhattacharya, Swami Pranabananda, Rama, Ramu, Swami Yukteswar, and a number of others, too quite a few to say. He even initiated a fervent devotee in a

imaginative and prescient, because the latter was not capable of come to Banaras. Thus, through the fashionable age of the Indian renaissance, the pleasant Ganga of Kriya flowed from Babaji within the Himalayas into the human habitat of distress and ache.

Throughout this era Lahiri Mahasaya met Babaji a number of occasions. It is a uncommon privilege loved solely by two individuals thus far. Throughout Prayag Kumbha Mela, he wandered among the many sadhus criticizing the “psychological hypocrisy” of a begging monk. Quickly after, he was shocked to search out the good Babaji washing the toes of an anchorite and proposing to scrub his vessels later. Thus, he was taught the good lesson of humility. One evening Kriya Babaji was seated with Lahiri Mahasaya, Swami Kebalananda and different chelas spherical a blazing Vedic hearth. Abruptly, he struck the naked shoulder of a close-by disciple evenly with a burning log.

Lahiri Mahasaya: “How merciless!”

Babaji: “However for this, he would have been burned to dying in response to his prarabdha.” The all-powerful Grasp positioned his therapeutic hand on the burned shoulder and thereby saved him from painful dying. All glory to the grace of Babaji!

Brahmacharini Shankari Mai Jew, a disciple of the good siddha Trailanga Swami, was on a go to to Lahiri Mahasaya at Barackpur, close to Calcutta.Quietly Babaji entered the room and conversed with them. Abruptly at midnight, Lahiri Mahasaya ordered the recluse, Ram Gopal Mazumdar to go alone and instantly to the Dasasamedh ghat in Banaras. The command was carried out promptly. Ram Gopal sat on the secluded spot, and after some time was astonished to search out an enormous stone slab open, revealing a hidden cave, from which Mataji, the ecstatic sister of Babaji, stepped out by the yogic means of levitation. Quickly after, Lahiri Mahasaya and the Kriya Paramguru materialized. All three prostrated on the toes of Babaji.

Babaji: “Suggest to shed my type and plunge into the Infinite.”

Mataji: “Grasp, (entreatingly) I’ve glimpsed your plan. Why do you have to go away your physique?

Babaji: “As a result of it makes no distinction to be seen or invisible.”

Mataji: “Guru Deva, if it makes no distinction, please don’t discard your type.”

AUM! The beloved Grasp consented to retain his bodily physique which might be seen to a specific few solely. Thus, a first-rate disaster within the historical past of the Kriya motion was staved by the intervention of the holy sister. Jai Mataji!

After the dialog, the good Grasp pacified the frightened Ram Gopal. Then the three past-masters levitated and left for his or her respective locations. On returning to Gurudeswar Mohulla lodge, Ram Gopal was shocked to listen to that his Guru, who was absolutely conscious of the evening’s interlude, was additionally bodily current at residence discoursing on immortality, to the opposite disciples. He turned conscious that Lahiri Mahasaya had attained the lofty state of being current somewhere else with two our bodies on the identical time.

One of many vital disciples of this Kriya Guru was Swami Pranabananda, who was capable of unite with Brahman by the intercession of his grasp. Later, he attained the Common imaginative and prescient and developed the yogic energy of being current in multiple physique, at completely different locations. Lastly, he shuffled off his mortal coils on the appointed hour by second Kriya and as already introduced loved a quick interval of Bliss, earlier than being re-born. A number of years after his new start, he joined the immortal group of Kriya Babaji.

The Christ-like lifetime of Lahiri Mahasaya was drawing to an in depth. Kriya Mulaguru selected Sri Yukteswar, one in every of his foremost disciples, to hold on the mission and make preliminary preparations for spreading the Kriya Gospel of Happiness to the West. Inspired by Lahiri Mahasaya, Yukteswar was attending the Prayag Kumbha Mela in January 1894 and feeling disgusted with the noise and the assemblage of inferior sadhus, who he thought have been losing their lives, not like Western scientists. Simply then an odd saint with shiny yogic eyes and a circle of spectacular disciples referred to as and embraced him, on the financial institution of the very low river Ganga. This saint was Babaji himself, who didn’t reveal his identification, to make the customer fairly at residence. He hinted that Sri Yukteswar would sooner or later

change into a samnyasin. (As years rolled previous, this got here true). Then he taught him to behave just like the legendary, swan (which drinks milk discarding the water), as an alternative of blaming the entire congregation of mela sadhus for the faults of the various.

Now, the dialog drifted to the age previous downside of mysticism. This exercise is healthier generally known as the East-West battle. Babaji along with his worldwide mission, spoke with nice emotion on the necessity for harmonious improvement of the Orient and Occident by Kriya Yoga. He promised to ship a disciple who would be the first missionary within the fashionable age to hold the message of Kriya to the West and likewise requested him to jot down a small guide on the essential unity of Hindu and Christian Scriptures. With a parting message for Lahiri Mahasaya, the memorable assembly ended.

It was a red-letter day within the historical past of the Kriya motion for on that date the grasp plan was laid for spreading Babaji’s Gospel of Happiness, to completely different components of the world. All glory to the Kriya Satguru and his mission. The very subsequent day Sri Yukteswar sped to Banaras, to relate the great encounter to his Guru with the message: “Inform Lahiri that the saved energy for this life now runs low; it’s virtually completed.” The second these apparently enigmatic phrases have been uttered, the good nishkamya karma yogi severed all connections with the world and have become a pale statue. Loss of life like silence reigned supreme for 3 lengthy anxious hours earlier than Lahiri Mahasaya regained his standard cheerful countenance. The hour of departure had not but come, because the important vitality was solely virtually completed.

In the meantime, Sri Yukteswar acquired the best shock of his life, to listen to from his Guru that the Kumbhmela sadhu was none apart from the Savior, Babaji. He hastened to his Serampore residence to jot down the divine guide, The Holy Science, along with his first melodious Sanskrit verse evaluating the essence of the Vedas and the Bible. As soon as he accomplished his nice job, he went to wash within the Ganga. Silence was the order of the day. On his return residence, he might even hear the swish-swish of his moist garments. One thing goaded him. He circled to search out the immortal Babaji and his associates seated beneath a big banyan tree close to the riverbank. The Savior welcomed him, as he fell prostrate at his toes full of pleasure, however politely declined the invitation to go to the

Serampore hermitage. Sri Yukteswar hurried residence to get some sweetmeats for the distinguished guests, however when he returned they have been nowhere to be discovered. The group appeared to have vanished into skinny air. Some months later, he didn’t see the good Babaji hiding behind the daylight, close to Lahiri Mahasaya’s room at Banaras. The Guru then tapped his brow, making his gaze faultless for some time and Yukteswar beheld the ever-youthful Paramguru. At first, remembering his grievance, he didn’t bow at his toes. However the unflattering clarification that adopted glad Yukteswar and he knelt to pay his respects. The loving Satguru patted him on the shoulder. Quickly after this incident, at a specified hour in 1895, Lahiri Mahasaya shed his physique.

The heavy accountability of the Kriya Mission was borne by Swami Yukteswar. After ready patiently for years, he was immensely glad to welcome and prepare his chief foreordained disciple, Paramahansa Yogananda Giri, who was drawn to his harbor of peace by an irresistible magnetic Drive. The strict Yukteswar made him get a College diploma by miraculous means, thus equipping him for the longer term missionary work in Western Nations. After years of gurukulavasa and sadhana, Yoganandaji attained the Cosmic Consciousness by the grace of his grasp. By means of that grace, he based a big Yoga faculty at Ranchi, Bihar in 1918 to show Yogoda, his distinctive system of mystic, psychological and bodily improvement. In the meantime, Swami Yukteswar established a variety of Sadhu Sabha facilities and thereby stored the torch of Kriya burning alongside along with his worthy disciple.

In 1920, Yoganandaji accepted an invite to attend, as an Indian delegate, the Worldwide Congress of Spiritual Liberals of America, in Boston. This invitation adopted a mystic imaginative and prescient directing him and so he made preparations to attend with the permission of his Guru and the monetary support of his father. On the eve of his departure, he prayed for hours with staunch dedication, to obtain divine permission for this transfer, in order to not be lured by Western materialism. Simply when he was about to interrupt down bodily, within the literal sense of the time period, someone knocked on his closed door. It was none apart from the Kriya Mulaguru himself, who learn his ideas and guaranteed him: “Our Heavenly Father has heard your prayer. He instructions me to let you know: Comply with the behests of your Guru and go to America. Worry not, you shall be protected.” After lifting the prostrate saint, he spoke about his life and the way forward for the Kriya Mission. Yoganandaji, in a match of emotion, tried to observe Babaji repeatedly, opposite to his recommendation, however failed, as an invisible Drive glued his toes to the ground. Promising to take him another time, Babaji left with an affectionate benediction.

Fortunately, Paramahansa Yogananda Giri left the shores of India, in August, as the primary fashionable Kriya missionary. After talking on the Congress on the Science of Faith, he labored exhausting for years in humble environment to construct the trendy edifice of Kriya. Because of his Herculean labors there are ninety branches all around the world – 26 in USA., 3 in Canada, one every in Cuba and Hawaii and eight in South America and Africa, 6 in Mexico, 2 within the Philippines, 22 in India, 16 on the continent of Europe and 4 within the British Isles. The world headquarters at Mount Washington Estates, 3880 San Raphael Avenue, Los Angeles 65, California, USA, publishes ‘Self Realization Journal,’ and the Japanese parental headquarters ‘Yogoda Sat Sangah,’ Dakshineshwar, close to Calcutta, distributes fortnightly Yogoda classes for college kids. Greater than 300

thousand have been initiated thus far.

In 1935, in response to the psychological name of Swami Yukteswar, Yoganandaji left for India passing by completely different international locations on the way in which. He toured India as effectively, spreading far and broad the Gospel of Yogoda and accumulating materials for his magnum opus, ‘Autobiography of a Yogi.’ Mahatma Gandhi turned his disciple. He was anxious to satisfy Babaji once more, however the Savior despatched phrase by Swami Keshabananda, whereas he was wandering within the Himalayas that he’ll meet him another time. On March 9, 1936 Swami Yukteswar handed away on the age of 81, handing over the mantle to Paramahansa Yogananda Giri, who re-organized the worldwide Kriya motion on this earth, whereas his Grasp carried

on the work in Hiranaya loka. In late 1936, Yogananda returned to America and served the reason for Kriya with unabated vigor for greater than a decade. In the direction of the shut of 1951, there was speak of his returning to India, a second time. However through the first half of 1952, the Kriya motion unexpectedly acquired a extreme blow when Yoganandaji, who had been main a secluded lifetime of sadhana for months, stepped out to take part within the reception given to the Indian Ambassador in America. He instantly collapsed and his bodily physique, which didn’t decompose even after twenty days turned the feeling of sensations in America and elsewhere! He belonged to the galaxy of saints like Sri Aurobindo and Saint Bernadette.

Verily to compensate this nice loss, Babaji determined to evolve a mahasaya out of a uncared for, however in a position, skilled journalist. There is no such thing as a phrase like unimaginable in his dictionary. This fascinating occasion narrated within the following pages won’t solely be acquainted to the thoughts of occultists, but additionally present ample meals for reflection to others.

The Delivery of a Mission

‘No. 9, Boag Street’ by Sri V.T. Neelakantan is a guide on Satguru Rama Devi. The author was about to pen the notice within the M. O. for the above publication. A thought crossed the thoughts: “Is it not excessive time you share your mystic treasures with others?” He did. As a substitute of “Pricey Sir,” “Pricey Atman” was used, and “Ever your Self ” changed “Yours.”

The windup, of the notice made an impression on V.T.N. (Sri V.T. Neelakantan) who visited 1-1 Arulananda Mudaly Road, San Thome Mylapore, Madras, in particular person. An odd invisible drive drew us collectively. Frequent visits and hours of clarification on mystic topics adopted. He developed a regard bordering on respect.

Someday he requested for books on mysticism. He acquired ‘Autobiography of a Yogi’ by Paramahansa Yogananda. This created a minor revolution in his thoughts. He turned a devotee of Kriya Babaji often uttering his Title.

A number one surgeon, associated to V.T.N. (by earlier start), was dressing his operated leg wound in his nursing residence freed from cost, however was scolding the affected person day by day for not attending to his well being, with out contemplating his poverty. Someday the lalita shashranamavali of the physician was insufferable, and V.T.N. left the place in disgust by no means to return for dressing thereafter. Despite the deep leg ulcer, he had sufficient burning mystic enthusiasm to stroll all the way in which from Egmore to San Thome to attend a bunch meditation, as he did virtually day by day. However on this present day he was exhausted and he sat on a wayside concrete bench within the Marina praying: “Babaji! will you give me sufficient power to meet this pilgrimage?”
