Race, Religion or Creed.
1- Dharma or
karma is our own creation. How can we eliminate karma to reach
Purification of the body and mind results in purity of the Soul.
However, this is only possible by Grace. Karma is not something
which stays forever. It is created so we will learn our lessons. We
learn our lessons by Grace.
His Grace is obtained
by devotion toward Him (Bahkti Yoga). Love God with all your Heart,
Mind and Being, by doing His Will (Karma Yoga), or through knowledge
(Jnana Yoga). The Mission of Maitreya utilizes all these three yogas
to accelerate the process. Following Maitreya’s teachings will win
His Grace and only by Grace are we saved.
2- How can I
find God? Do I need to go to a mystery school?
It is amazing that
people go through such a long process to find God. In the
description you sent me, this teacher had visited many monasteries,
ancient temples, mystical schools, etc..., yet, we can realize God
in the simplest things in life, in the smile of a child, in the
process of birth, when a mother feeds her baby, or in a sunrise or
I suppose those who go
through a harder process to see these simple truths need that time
for purification. Only those who have shattered the power of
illusion of separation and are One can see God in these and All of
simple day-to-day life.
So the answer to your
question, "Do I need to go to a mystery school?" is: No, you can
realize God wherever you are!
teachings of Maitreya lay emphasis on three kingdoms: The Kingdom Of
God In Heaven, The Kingdom Of God On Earth, and The Kingdom Of God
within each of us. Each Kingdom has a hierarchy. Can you tell me the
meaning of hierarchy in relationship to these Kingdoms?
Heaven includes the
Universal Mind (which is everywhere and is beyond) and the ethereal
level. In the Universal Mind there is a hierarchy of thoughts which
create many infinite levels of the manifested world (or worlds). In
each level the reality perceived is limited only in that level. The
illusion of separation of these levels is shattered only when the
vision of the whole is perceived.
The hierarchy in the
ethereal level consists of beings who have overcome the four levels
of progress and have reached the ethereal state. In this stage also
a hierarchy is established. These beings can only help a person to
their level, which is the fifth level. It is two levels below the
Highest. In this level still a person might fall into the illusion
of the powers (siddhis) and be trapped in his or her creation. The
highest realization is to reach Pure Consciousness or Oneness with
God. This is beyond any illusion.
The hierarchy of God on
earth is the hierarchy presented in MAP and in The Plan. It will be
filled by those who are chosen (144,000) to bring about the Kingdom
Of Heaven On Earth (KOHOE). The Kingdom within is when a person
finds God in his or her Heart. It has nothing to do with any
organized religion, philosophy, or external circumstance. It is a
personal relationship between a man and God. It is God within the
temple of one’s body.
There is also a
hierarchy in this Kingdom (within). Each person realizes God in a
different level (hierarchy) within. Any person in a level above
another can teach the person below. That is why we have so many
teachers, each with a little knowledge, proclaiming to be a teacher
and they do find followers, those who are a little below them.
However, the greatest
teacher of all is The Christ (God) who teaches all levels in the
hierarchy and each one is a part of His Body.
4- Why are the
three colors (white, red/orange, and blue) of The Greatest Sign not
the three basic (primary) colors (yellow, red and blue)?
Because God revealed
them this way...! The color white, the color of unity, contains all
colors. Yellow and red are a part of the white. So The Greatest Sign
has all the primary colors.
5- If there is
a sanctuary in the Center (in the Mission of Maitreya), what is the
use, or is there any ritual there?
What is the purpose of
any sanctuary, temple, church, mosque, synagogue, etc? It is to go
away from the noise and pulls of the world, to go to the Spirit. It
is to go to pray, to withdraw to God, to clear the mind, to
meditate, to become One.
The sanctuary in the
Center is also for this purpose. In order to create a greater power
of spirit in the sanctuary, and also a greater unity for the
community, to perform the spiritual practices in the sanctuary is
highly recommended, especially for collective meditation and prayer.
The most important part
of the collective meditation is the performance of The Reminder (to
understand His Will and Him in greater degree) and meditation. Of
course, the other recommended, as you put it, "rituals" have great
For example, Kirtan
(chanting and dancing) brings a greater harmony to the participants,
a greater harmony to each individual and invokes greater spirit by
opening higher psychic centers in the participants.
The recitation of
Samgacchadvam, which is a great mantra from the oldest Scriptures
(Vedas), directs the mind toward the universe and its oneness, and
the necessity to know one another, to become One.
Recitation of the
"Divine Path" not only explains the Eternal Divine Path, but also
recommends that we do meditation and perform The Reminder at least
twice a day regularly and follow the Fifteen Commandments. It is the
Fifteen Commandments which bring us to higher ethics and oneness
with God. It is not a series of commandments, but the essence of
them, which guides us to realize why "Thou shalt not..." It guides
us to where Esa (Jesus) wanted to take humanity, that: The goal is
not, to not do adultery, or any other forbidden action, but to reach
a point where no desire is left to do so.
As you have said, to
perform these is a request. However, remember, God never requests
from us if it is not good (God) for us. His request should be a
command to us.
rituals appeal to different people. Each person can place more
emphasis on the one they like most and feel closer to God by
practicing it. Also some rituals are given to make us more aware of
their effect and to become more tolerant toward other cultures which
practice them, such as chanting in some religions, Kirtan, etc. This
will bring greater understanding and accelerates the unity.
6- My Sat-guru
is Param Santi Kirpal Sinngh Ji Maharaj. Who is the Guru of
Maitreya is The Christ, the First Begotten Son
of God. He is the first to reach Pure Consciousness before creation.
He is the GURU of the Gurus, teachers, etc. They are all a part of
Him. No one goes to the Father but through Him.
to my realization, Avatars like Jesus Christ, Sai Baba are god-men.
Guru Nanak, Baba Sawan Singh Ji, Sant Darshan Singh Ji are Satgurus
or man-gods. Both Avatars and Satgurus derive their powers from God
Almighty, Pure Consciousness. Which is greater, Satguru or Avatar?
You can add to this the
Christ, the First Begotten Son, the Messiah. The Avatars and
Satgurus come and are stationed on earth, each for a purpose. Each
of them comes to attract specific people and/or individuals. They
come to further the progress of those who have reached a certain
level of consciousness. There is no one greater than the other. They
each have a duty to fulfill, that is all.
However, the Christ or
the Messiah comes whenever there is a quantum leap necessary for the
collective consciousness of a planet, in this case earth. For
example, Esa (Jesus) was not just an Avatar but The Christ. This is
why he brought a new religion on earth. A leap in human
consciousness occurred. Also Krishna, Muhammad, Bab, etc, were the
Messiah. The culmination of all these past leaps in human
consciousness is now ready to reach its highest. This is presented
in Maitreya’s teachings in
The Holiest Of The Holies
(THOTH), The Last Testament.
8- What is the
difference for you, between seaweed, sea kelp, kelp and dulse (in
the food section in THOTH)? And is the salt (sea) included in
sentient food (and herbs also)?
Salt can be categorized
as rajasic food, since it stimulates the body. All stimulants are
rajasic! They release energy to the body, from the body’s reserve,
which is for the use of the body at times of emergency. They usually
do not have any energy of themselves. That is why they use the
reserve energy of the body.
This will lower the
tolerance of the body, because the reservoir of energy needed for
the body to fight off many diseases, is reduced. Usually this type
of food also gives a kind of rush energy and then a sudden crash.
The reason is, some energy is released from the reserved area and
then the body withdraws to rest to replace the energy lost by the
Rajasic food such as
tea, coffee, etc, may be good for the mind for a short period, but
will damage the body if used excessively. People who use many
stimulants are usually weak in fighting diseases, etc, especially at
an old age. Salt is also a rajasic food. Sea salt is no exception.
Of course, we have to
remember that nothing is bad in this universe, it becomes good (God)
or evil (Devil) according to how we use it. Anything in moderation
is better than anything in extreme, either way — too sentient or too
To answer your question
about seaweed, sea kelp, kelp and dulse: Kelp is any of the various
kinds of large brown seaweed. Therefore, kelp is supposed to be
rajasic. However, the ultimate realization about any of our
teachings should come from within.
There are three
categories of food: Tamasic, rajasic and satvic. Tamasic foods might
or might not be good for the body, but they are not good for the
mind and spirit, such as meat, onions and garlic. Rajasic foods are
good for the mind but are not necessarily good for the body and/or
spirit, such as coffee. Satvic foods are good for the body, mind and
spirit, such as most vegetables, grains, fruits, etc. The middle
path is the best way.
people sent us Christmas cards)...
Thanks for the card, it
was beautiful. Of course you know we only celebrate God’s Holy Days,
but thanks for the thought and remembrance. I hope it was done with
Purity and Love! We appreciate your thoughts and remembrance of us.
May God Bless all and guide them to the truth and Oneness.
To bring about this
Oneness not only in the spiritual realms but on the manifested
plane, we follow God’s Holy Days, as the holidays. This not only is
a sign of obedience to God, but also will eliminate many holidays in
so many different cultures. Only the Holy Days of God are the days
to honor the True Invisible, All-Pervasive God.
We accept the beginning
of the New Year at the beginning of spring, when everything is
renewed, the Beginning of a New Year of a new era!
10- Why is
there still news of a presence of "Maitreya" in London and the
Are you asking this for
yourself or are you asking to see what to answer others? If you are
asking for yourself, the answer should be in your own heart. Have
your Heart and Mind accepted that I am "The Maitreya?" If not, then
it is important for you to resolve this before proceeding. It is
probably the most important realization and decision for each person
to make. You have seen me and know my teaching. You have to make
this decision now.
If you are asking the
question for others, I have extensively answered it in the Golden
Keys booklets, especially in Golden Keys IV. Look at the
fulfilled prophecies, the names given to me, the unifying teachings,
etc., etc. Even the coming of many claiming to be "The Christ" has
been foretold. It is good to be skeptical but eventually, we have to
draw the line and make up our minds.
We ourselves are
patiently waiting for this confusion to be lifted. We have seen many
contradictory claims by those who say they represent Maitreya, or
are Him, and many unfulfilled promises. These make us wonder about
the spirit behind the whole thing. God does not claim things
contrary to His Word (Scriptures) nor would He promise anything that
He would not fulfill.
If you are the follower
of appearances and sensationalism of events, then you will not
realize the Spirit of Truth which is Solid and Humble. Your mind
will be clouded with confusion and will follow the crowd. You will
not see the contradiction in their work and their momentary success
will blind you.
Those who are guided by
the Spirit of God are not blinded by these things. They put their
feet on the solid unifying teachings and are not deterred by
temporary attractions, be it more followers, the hard Path, more
prestige or whatever. You are here to weigh everything the Mission
represents and compare it to others. If you have the slightest
doubt, your endeavor will not be very fruitful. Your spirit has to
be One with the spirit behind the teachings and The Greatest Sign.
Therefore, tell them about the teaching, about The Greatest Sign,
about our literature and Maitreya. Then, let them make up their own
minds. They might need some help and guidance along the way but the
final decision must come from within themselves.
When they arrive at
such a point, then they are One with us and can work toward
fulfillment of The Plan. They will first recognize it with their
minds, second with their Hearts, and when they also proclaim that It
is It, then their Hearts and Minds will be One and the Oneness is
complete. They are One and a part of the Body of Christus
(Christ-us), one of the Elders (144,000).
11- What is
the Universal Mind? Maitreya says you have to be in touch with the
Universal Mind. I have read many books and still am not there. How
many books do you have to read?
You do not be(come) in
touch with the Universal Mind through reading books alone. They do
help to create an intellectual perception, but only Grace enables
one to be(come) in touch with God (Universal Mind). When you Love
God with all your Heart, Mind and Spirit, then you will become one
with Him (will be in touch with Its Mind).
Universal Mind is the
mind that the universe is made of and also is beyond the manifested
universe. The Universal Mind in our teaching consists of satva guna
(Mahattattva), raja guna (Ahamtattva) and tama guna (Chitta). The
consciousness is the witness entity or Soul of this Universal Mind.
The Soul and the Mind of God Is Omnipresent, Omniscient, and
12- Why is it
so difficult to meditate?
It is good that you are
still doing the Reminder and meditating. No one said controlling the
mind and be(com)ing one with God is easy. Without Grace it is
impossible for man. Remember it is easier for a camel to go through
the eye of a needle than for a man to reach God without His Grace.
Therefore, seek His
Grace by wanting Him with All your Heart, Mind and Spirit, by doing
His Will and realizing that He has given you this opportunity to go
About helping you with
your meditation: All the tools given in the Mission are to help you
in your meditation. Reading THOTH, chanting the HOSH mantra,
reading Satsangs and lectures, gazing at The Greatest Sign, talking
about the Mission with others, service, etc, are all helpful in your
path. Each person can do all of them or a combination of them,
according to their temperaments.
In meditation, sit
somewhere where you are comfortable, but not so comfortable that you
may fall asleep (sit up, preferably in a lotus pose). Do the
procedure given to you, if any, before starting to meditate on your
mantra or HOSH mantra. Then breathe in the first part of your
mantra. Between breathing in and breathing out there is a pause.
Realize this pause. Then breathe out the second part of your mantra
and also realize the pause before breathing in again.
If your mind starts
wandering, gently bring it back to the mantra and awareness of your
breathing. The genie (mind) wants to go to new thoughts (projects)
and the mantra (the tail) keeps him from doing it. So when the
wandering mind stops and becomes calm water, then you can see the
reflection of consciousness (God) within.
So, do not force the
mantra on yourself, but gently bring the mind back to it. Let the
mind know that you are in charge and it has to obey you instead of
you obeying it. You will win the struggle. Meditation (sadhana)
13- Why do you
demand 10% tithes?
About I "demand 10%": I
do not demand. Thanksgiving is the first Law. The tithe (10%) is a
purifier which is sent as an offering to God. It is not only a sign
of thanksgiving for what God has offered or provided for us, it is a
sign of obedience to Him, and it also will enable the Mission to
accomplish things it needs to do financially. If it is not coming
from your Heart, God does not want it either.
14- Why cannot
just meditating and prayer vigils around the world cure all?
We have to follow the
middle path. In this middle path there is a balance between the
physical, mental and spiritual plane. To emphasize any plane over
the others brings disharmony. To be attached to the physical world
draws you to the Maya. To neglect the external world will bring
misery, disease and suffering. To emphasize the mental ability
results in believing that you can solve all problems with the
intellect or mental powers. To neglect this part will result in
being simple-minded and not able to intellectually understand our
This is also true for
spiritual endeavors. To meditate and/or pray alone will result in a
person falling back on himself or herself. Meditation and prayer
should guide us to Divine action(s).
Only the middle path, a
balance between these three spheres, brings harmony to our lives and
others. Therefore, those who think they can bring peace with
mobilizing a collective, one time worldwide meditation, prayer, etc,
only uplift humanity for a short time. These processes should be
performed constantly. The end result is to realize that the
Communities of Light based on the Eternal Divine Path will bring the
balance between inner quest (meditation and prayer) with outer
manifestation (action based on the Eternal Divine Path). Faith
without action is dead!
When many realize this
truth and Communities of Light start to be created all over the
world, and are connected together focused on One God, then the
permanent peace is at hand. Only this will bring the peace we all
are longing for. Other activities, although they might have a
short-lived effect, will not bring the permanent fulfillment of
prophesied expectation to earth. Only meditation and prayer based on
the Eternal Divine Path will...!
Those who do not
realize this truth and stay lukewarm (escapists), as the book of
The Revelation clearly states, will be "spued out of His mouth."
God tells us also in The Revelation not to forget our first
love, or not to escape from the world (your first love). "Be in the
world but not of it."
15- What is
True Baptism has
nothing to do with any earthly rituals. It is a spiritual awakening
of the Soul. That is why John the Baptist said, "I...baptize you
with water... but he that cometh after me...shall baptize you with
the Holy Ghost..." (Matthew 3:11). Baptism means to turn around, to
return, to face God instead of the world!
16- My friend
who is interested in the Mission does little to support it. What
should I do?
This person is a
wonderful man, I have met him. But he has a family and a
responsibility toward them. Also he is interested in spirituality
and is willing to do things for the Mission, but he is not supported
in these endeavors by his family 100%. This creates a great conflict
Therefore, do not push
him too much, let him do what he can. Otherwise he has to choose
between the two. You cannot have two masters, otherwise...(Matthew
6:24). Create understanding for the situation people are in. There
will be few who will be 100% dedicated.
However, even those who
are not 100% dedicated can do great things and can greatly help
those who are 100% dedicated. So be patient with them. Give them
Love, understanding, support, and let each manifest according to
their capacity. Many small helps have greater power than a few large
ones! May All become 100% dedicated to God and His Will. That is the
way to enter His Kingdom.
17- The group
here, although others sometimes refer to it as a community, has
still to undergo a lot of transformations before something like a
Community of Light can really emerge. Although they do Zen
meditation and social work, the members are not yet strongly rooted
in the path and I believe many can’t find a way to answer or solve
their own questions... What can I do?
It is not easy to let
go of the old pattern, which we are so familiar and comfortable
with, and accept the new one. It seems that this is also the problem
with the group with which you are working.
God always incarnates
Himself on earth to further human evolution. The Mission presents a
middle path in all levels of human existence. It is most necessary
in this time of human evolution: A time when humanity has two
choices, to destroy themselves to utter nothingness or to transform
themselves to true civilized beings, and bring about a harmonious
and well-behaved society on earth to accelerate the progress of man
to his highest.
Zen meditation and
social work are all good and are a part of The Plan, but they are a
small part. As you have well perceived, we need leaders who will
pioneer the formation of the Communities of Light. These communities
are the foundation of the Kingdom.
It was these
Communities which also were formed by Krishna, the incarnation of
God in India. It was also these Communities that Gautama Buddha
called Sanga (Community) which are based on Daharma. It is the same
idea presented by the twelve tribes of Israel, the early Christian
communities, the same as the brotherhood of Moslems and their
communities, etc. Therefore, it is not really a new idea, yet this
time the idea is crystallized in Its highest form in The Greatest
Sign and Maitreya’s teachings.
God is not something
remote, up there, that we cannot approach. As your letter indicates,
and someone there mentioned, "...Maitreya is one of the gods like
Gautama. From her tone, she seems skeptical about Maitreya
incarnating as human..." As Esa (Jesus) said, God is Spirit and we
must worship Him in Spirit. The Spirit (God) incarnates Itself on
earth anytime His Presence is necessary. This is revealed by
Krishna, that "Whenever the Spiritual Understanding is faint, and
morality weak, I will incarnate to guide man to Myself." (Bhagavad-Gita
understanding is indeed weak and morality is low now on earth. Many
are following many gods, Gurus, teachers, etc, but know very little
of the Spirit. Whoever knows the Spirit, knows God. It is so simple
that many miss it. Also it is so simple that many Gurus and teachers
would lose their position. That is why they have to make it so
complicated that they can keep their disciples. Salvation comes not
by these philosophies, but only by knowing the Spirit which is All
Communities of Light will bring Harmony and Unity on earth
and will help each individual to realize this Spirit or God.
Therefore, this is the way to salvation, physically, mentally and
If you think this group
has potential to manifest something, that is great. It seems you
understand them very well. Maybe everyone has to go through the old
patterns first to see they will not work, then they might be ready
for the New! This always has been a problem for a new and more
progressive Ideal. Read about the founder of any great religion.
18- I am
reading books about Esa’s (Jesus’) life..., His Love is so High. How
can we create that kind of Love?
I know that Love and
practiced it when I first started the Mission. It is great. But I
was stabbed with hatred and crucified by many who stepped all over
my open Heart. I learned to Love others with the same Love but guard
my Heart from being hurt (created wisdom). They crucified Esa
(Jesus). He learned this lesson in that life — that man crucifies
such an open Love. My Love is with you all, with the same capacity
as you have felt from Esa (Jesus). But it is time for the disciples
now to understand this Love by knowing God, manifest it, and also
create wisdom (discriminating mind).
We are here to manifest
the Love of Esa (Jesus) with the wisdom of Buddha, the practicality
of Muhammad, the universality of Baha’i, and any other qualities of
God which exist. Probably our path is more comprehensive and more
difficult than any of them alone. But to struggle to understand and
come close to God is the only endeavor which will yield a permanent
result. If you ever progress (in the Spirit), be it a little, it
will stay with you forever. Any other possession, be it physical or
mental, has to be left behind.
Therefore, arise above
all the trivialities of life, and raise the shield of righteousness
and the gird of purity with the sword (Word) of the truth, even if
the rest of the universe stays opposed to you. That is the Spirit of
God (Holy Ghost) manifested through His servants. Be One with this
Christ is the symbol of sacrifice on the cross. But followers of
Christianity believe that Jesus died for our sins on the cross. If
Jesus died for humanity on the cross, for our sins, why is it there
are sins, wars, color discrimination, etc?
The notion that Esa
(Jesus) died for our sins has a greater spiritual significance. Many
people can forgive and forget other people’s transgressions but not
their own. They truly do not believe that God in Its Highest
forgives them for their shortcomings. He forgives all, especially
those who learn their lesson and do not repeat the mistake.
Therefore, if it is
believed that Esa (Jesus) died for our sins and we are forgiven by
God, then we can forgive ourselves and start anew. But if we believe
that we are forgiven and turn around and repeat the offensive
actions, then we are fools.
God forgives your sins
if you ask Him, no matter who you are, a Hindu, a Jew, a Christian,
a Moslem, in the Mission of Maitreya (Divine), etc. But there is a
condition, that you will not repeat it and will have learned the
The more people learn
this and realize that God is All, the closer we will be(come) to
perfection. Then we will not sin because there is no desire left to
sin. There will be peace, because we do not separate ourselves by
imaginary boundaries or different nations, races, etc. We will not
discriminate against one another because we are all a part of God.
No one can die for
anyone’s sin. The Gurus, Avatars, and Satgurus can take their
disciples’ karma (sin) and Christ takes the karma of the world. That
is why he accelerates the human consciousness as a whole. However,
only by sacrifice ()
(which is the message of Esa’s ministry) can we create the
Communities of Light ()
which is the message of the
Old Testament. These were supposed to be formed by the
Children of Light (Israelites).
Sacrifice is the true
message of Esa (Jesus) The Christ.
20- In the
gospel according to Saint John, chapter 1 verse 14, "And the Word
was made flesh, and dwelt among us (and we beheld his glory, the
glory as the only begotten of father) full of Grace and truth," this
refers to Jesus Christ. Is Jesus Christ the Only Begotten Son of the
In THOTH, it is
explained how the First Begotten Son, who is The Word, The Christ,
the Messiah, came to Be. Anytime the earth becomes corrupt, or the
Father sees it is necessary, The Word is manifested, "and was made
flesh," on earth and dwelleth "among" men (us). Man beholds "his
Glory [His teachings], the Glory as the Only Begotten of Father,
full of Grace and truth."
This is also revealed
Bhagavad-Gita, where Krishna states, "Whenever the
righteousness is faint, and the unrighteousness rules...my Spirit
arises on earth..." (B.G. 4:7). This Spirit (God) was raised as Esa
(Jesus) The Christ, as it was raised many other times. Now again it
has risen on earth to manifest our teachings.
21- How was
the name of Jesus Christ formed?
There are many
plausible explanations, and there are others worth considering. One
of them, which has been explained in our Mission’s main book
states that: The prefix "JE" in the name of Jesus is pronounced
"JAY," the same as "JAY" in Sanskrit which means "victory to." The
other part, also stated in your letter, is the name of the Greek god
"Zeus." Therefore, the very name means "Victory to Zeus."
The true name of the
Christ has been preserved in a manuscript in a monastery in India.
His name, as he appeared as a man 2000 years ago, was Isa or Esa. He
is known by this name all through the East. He also has a Sacred
Name, like the Sacred Name of His Father, which cannot be pronounced
in the manifested world. In their corrupted form they are known as
Y'shua or something similar (for the Son or the Christ) and Yahweh
or something similar (for the Father).
The Hebrews knew that
his Name and God’s Name could not be pronounced. That is why it was
forbidden to utter the name of the Lord. Later on those who did
utter His name were stoned. The reason was that His name is in
heaven and cannot be pronounced on earth. The moment you utter it as
an earthly sound, it loses its true sound and becomes corrupted. His
name which intermingles with the name of the Son, creates what is
known as The Word (Holy Name, etc). This is what is referred to as
"...if you know my Name and my Son." Only those who know His Name
and His Son’s Name know Him and will enter into heaven.
You refer to his name
as Yohoshua. As it was explained, this is not his earthly name. The
word Yahwehshua means Savior (Shua or Shalo) of God (Yahweh). It was
the title for the Messiah. It is the corrupted form of The Word. The
Word in Its purest form cannot be pronounced in earthly forms, be it
by uttering it, or writing it, etc.
The Word, however, is
always revealed to the Messiah. Esa knew It and healed many through
It. So did Muhammad who talked about the Sacred Name of the Lord. So
did Abram (Abraham), and whenever the Messiah comes, He knows It.
About the story of the
crucifixion that you have portrayed: The most important thing is
what the Messiah did and said, not how he died, who died in His
place, if He died on the cross, or even if he was crucified, etc.
These are all to divert the attention from the main issue: how we
can become like Him!
22- What is
the relationship between the names Christ and Krishna?
There is no doubt that
there is a strong connection between Christ and Krishna or Chrishna.
Both have the same root "Christos" or "The Anointed One." They are
also related to the word Charisma which means "God is with Him." It
is a well known fact that most European languages, Sanskrit,
Persian, etc, all have the same root of Indo/European origin.
We also can see great
similarities between the teachings of Christ (Esa) and Krishna. They
both came from the same Source, through the same Source! This all
confirms the interconnectedness between all works of God and the
Oneness of humanity in Him.
23- Is it in
Bible that Esa (Jesus) died for the sins of humanity?
This notion that Esa
(Jesus) died for our sins or for the sins of the world has,
probably, its origin in John 1:29, "...Behold the Lamb of God, which
taketh away the sin of the world."
In the Christian world
it is taken to refer only to Esa (Jesus). However, as the sentence
says, it is "...the Lamb of God..." or the Messiah.
Remember for man it is
impossible to overcome karma (sin). He/She is born carnal. The flesh
is strong and the Spirit is weak (in most). That is why we are saved
only by Grace. It is for this reason that God has to reincarnate
Himself on earth as the expected Messiah (the Lamb of God) and take
the sin of the world, and through His Grace man may be saved.
This sentence in the
is very much related to what Krishna reveals in the book the
Bhagavad-Gita. In essence He says, "Whenever the righteousness
is faint, and the unrighteousness rules...my Spirit arises on earth,
and through Me man is saved [or brought back to the right path.]"
Yes, Christ or the
Messiah takes the sin of the world. They are saying the truth when
they say this. However, when they stay short of realizing that "the
Lamb of God" comes again and again on earth, they narrow their view.
When they do not recognize his other incarnations, they create
separation. Narrowness of the mind and creating separation are from
ignorance, and ignorance is the essence of suffering.
In answering your
question, yes, Esa took the sin of man. However, his death on the
cross had multiple purposes. It was prophesied that he would be
crucified. It was a symbol of the lamb of God being sacrificed, so
the practice of sacrificing lambs and other animals would be
stopped. It was to fulfill the prophecies so The Grace of God could
be released to humanity. Of course, because he took the sin of the
world at that time, a part of his crucifixion can be taken as he
paid for them.
The world has been
pretty busy sinning since the crucifixion of Esa. He did not pay for
the sins committed after him!
24- Did Jesus
die because it was a way to show humanity there is sin and that we
Repentance has a great
psychological and spiritual effect. You see, many of us can forgive
others, but we have a hard time to forgive ourselves. Here is the
way out, we repent and go to God and ask for forgiveness. God never
condemns us. Do you condemn a little child for being clumsy? If you
are a good parent with understanding, you won’t. Father is all that.
So what we are really
doing by repenting is we forgive ourselves. God never condemned us.
This forgiveness is the beginning of "being born again." The belief
that "Christ died for our sins" really is the same as repentance. If
he died for our sins then all our sins are forgiven, aren’t they?
Then we are free to approach God.
This notion really is a
spiritual crutch to get you over the hurdle of forgiving the self,
purifying the Spirit and feeling close to God. Now if you go ahead
and continue a sinful life, then you are not really repentant. God
will withdraw His Grace even further.
If you had not repented
and accepted that what you do is sin, then you were in ignorance.
After repentance it is a recognition that you had done sin. By
returning to it, it no longer can be looked upon lightly since you
are not ignorant of your actions any longer.
That is why God sends
His Prophets and that is the reason the Messiah comes. They tell
people the ways of God. After they give the message to humanity and
tell them the ways of God, humanity no longer has an excuse. They
have been told the ways of the universe. Now if they continue to go
against His ways, they will break themselves against Him.
and/or accepting that God forgives our sins is the beginning of
purification. It is when a man is born from flesh to Spirit.
However, after this cross-point, the fall will be harder than
before. The higher you go, the greater will be the fall.
Be therefore strong in
your resolution and be single-eyed in your focus. When your eyes are
single, your whole body will be filled with Light. Then you surely
go straight to the Father and nothing of this world will divert you
from your journey!
25- What do
the verses in
Matthew in the Bible refer to?
Then if any man
shall say unto you, Lo here is Christ, or there; believe it not,
for there shall arise false Christs and false prophets and shall
shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were
possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told
you before. Wherefore, if they say unto you, Behold, He is in
the desert, go not forth, behold, he is in the secret chambers,
believe it not." (Matthew 24:23-26)
Remember Christ said,
"...many shall come... and call themselves Christ, and deceive
many..." Therefore, there is "the Christ" and there will be many who
will call themselves "christs." There will be "The Greatest Sign"
but many will bring "great signs" and "wonders."
To know the difference
between "the Christ" and many "christs," and "The Greatest Sign" and
"great signs" and "wonders," God has revealed the prophecies in many
religions. Those who claim they are "christ" or bring "great signs"
and "wonders" but have not fulfilled the prophecies are the false
We take your article as
a cry from your Soul which wants to find the truth. That is why we
wrote this, that it may help to answer this cry, and may the true
meaning of God’s words be revealed to you and His Spirit (Holy
Ghost) open your eyes to the truth.
...Probably my ultimate question is, what is real and what is not?
You have described many
dualities and pulls in your letter. It seems you have been torn
between "what is real" and "what is not." The only reality is
God...! All others are a relative truth, unstable and ever-changing.
Therefore, do not be
attracted to what the world offers, physically, mentally or
emotionally. And do not compare what the Mission does with what
others have started. There has been a prophecy that this teaching
will come. No prophecies have been fulfilled by the others.
what we feel is not the answer,
but how God feels!
27- What does
the verse in
The Revelation mean: "For they are the spirits of devils,
working miracles,..." (Rev. 16:14)
Maya, its attraction,
the desires, and those things that brainwash humans to be pulled to
the external world, attract many people. Like unclean spirits, false
prophets make many miracles ("spirits of devils, working miracles")
which are eye-catching to material life. Now is the time of a battle
between God Almighty’s servants or Saints, and the power of the
attraction of Maya and the false prophets.
scientist just moved close by me on a lake with his wife. I talked
with them about God, but they say they want nothing to do with God.
Why should scientists be atheists?
Tell that scientist
that he is closer to God than he thinks. Indeed most scientists are!
God is not dogmas in the dogmatic religions. He is the very science
itself. He is what scientists, especially physicists, search for as
the unified field in the universe.
Scientists are opposed
to dogmas. If they, however, realize God as the Essence of creation,
the Logic behind the creation (science) and see it clearly, they
will be closest to Him. When they say, "They want nothing to do with
God," they mean religions and dogmas. They are opposed to the
illogical religions they know, not the truth.
God is the very "sense"
(science)! Everything else is, "nonsense!"
29- What is
electricity? Isn’t Yahweh electricity?
Electricity is that
element which carries intelligence. God or consciousness is
everything including electricity and intelligence. Scientists also
cannot define ether. Ether is that element which carries electricity
and other subtler elements in the universe.
Soul is the Pure
Consciousness (God). It resides in the spirit or ethereal body. The
ethereal body is further connected to the physical body through
prana or life-force. At the time of death when the connection
between the ethereal body and the physical body is disconnected,
spirit and Soul leave the physical body (for a more detailed
explanation, read Universe and Man in the book THOTH).
The process of death
and rebirth is nothing but a change from an old cloth (old body) to
a new one.
30- I wonder
about scientists and their recent discoveries. How close can they
come to realize God?
Indeed, most scientists
are closer to God than many clergy and so called "religious people."
However, the best instrument to realize God is our body (the temple
of God). The scientists can come close to realizing there is Spirit.
This will be intellectual realization of God, which is fine.
The greatest way to
realize Him, however, is through direct personal contact.
31- Why were
the Atlanteans destroyed?
The Atlanteans were
destroyed because they misused their scientific and spiritual
knowledge for self-glorification instead of using it for spiritual
growth. Whenever people misuse their God-given Blessings, they are
replaced by others.
32- What about
Astrology has its place
but like many other things, it is not the ultimate truth. Whatever
is not ultimate will not give you the ultimate answer.
Predictions of the
future and the future belong to God. The only time He lets the
future be predicted is through His Prophets. It is in the form of
prophecies. It is done so that when they are fulfilled, man becomes
more faithful and realizes God exists.
In the matter of how
much choice we have in our life (being co-creator of the Creator)
read "Predestination or Choice" at the end of the book
Essays II of THOTH.
33- What are
the causes of my present sufferings? How can I cure them?
It depends on what kind
of sufferings they are. Sufferings, like everything else, can be of
three kinds. In this case they can be physical (tama), mental (raja)
or spiritual. Of course all these levels are greatly interrelated to
one another. However, in a limited sense, you can separate them from
occurs because of the blockages of the energy in the body. This
becomes more profound if the body is toxic. Fasting, meditation and
a balanced diet greatly helps the cure of the body.
Mental sufferings are
related to the unbalances between the psychic centers (chakras).
They also occur because of the social pressures. A harmonious
environment, good rest, meditation, fasting, prayer, etc, will
greatly help. They all will be provided in the Communities of Light.
Spiritual suffering, of
course, is the worst. Indeed other sufferings have a spiritual
cause. The cause of spiritual suffering is the feeling of being
separate from God. This will result in feeling lonely, powerless,
and vulnerable. He who feels that God is not with him is vulnerable
and is at the mercy of the troubles and problems of the world. He
who is above all these trivialities has no problems and experiences
This is the way you can
cure your "present sufferings!"
34- I received
a copy of
The Plan and I feel really blessed to have been given such a
work and even more blessed in knowing that I am taking part in this
Plan. This first poem I received was in reference to the Communities
of Light you speak about:
The cities will be
lit, by Love’s illumination,
The cities will be
built, by man’s determination,
We’ll walk the
earth in God’s own light,
ablaze, both in day and at night,
And as we grow,
we’ll make needed changes,
With Maitreya to
guide us, as Love rearranges.
1- We pay our salutations to The Divine Father, who has
helped all come from ignorance to the path of
enlightenment. Ignorance is the state of unawareness of
the reality behind this universe, and enlightenment is
the state of Pure Consciousness.
2- We open our hearts to Your Grace and pray for Your
Guidance in overcoming the power of the tama guna over
our Souls and detaching ourselves from Maya.
3- We adore and promise to endeavor to help the whole
universe to reach higher consciousness and eventually
4- In reverence we bow our heads in front of all the
Great Souls in the past and those to come who have
helped and will help all to understand Your Compassion
and Mercy in Your Actions and Creation.
5- We surrender ourselves to You, the Words revealed to
us through Your Prophets, and Your Greatest Sign which
clarifies the confusion between all.
6- We submit only to You which is Formless, Nameless and
Invisible. You in this state unify -- in any other
state, humanity will be divided. Also, this will prevent
us from surrendering to false prophets and teachers.
7- However, in reverence we bow our heads in front of
all the Great Souls who will teach us how to know You
and show us the way to be(come) Pure Consciousness, as
is the goal.
