Tablet Three


<1>It is recommended to fast on the full moons, first moons, eleven days after the full moon, and eleven days after the first moon. It is also recommended to fast on the Sabbath. <2>Fasting on the full and first moons is especially recommended for single people and renunciates (sannyasins). <3>The fast should start at sunset until the sunset of the next day. If this seems too long, a fast from sunrise to sunset is advisable.

<4>The purpose of fasting (in addition to many benefits which are derived from it, physically and mentally) is spiritual. That is, fasting should be done to bring the person closer to the Lord and make him realize the self.

<5>That is why it is recommended to keep away from talkativeness and sexual intercourse, and to direct the thoughts toward God.

Five General Commandments:

1- Submission: <8>The Divine Father in heaven is One, Invisible, Nameless, and the Greatest.

2- Surrendering: <9>Do not go to complete prostration (submit) to anyone or thing except Him, the words revealed through His Prophets, and The Greatest Sign, which clarifies the confusion between all.

3- Goal of the Life: <10>Remember the goal of the life, which is to reach Pure Consciousness and help others to reach the same.

4- Messengers: <11>Consider the Prophets, Satgurus, Avatars, or likewise as God's Messengers to bring His Messages and Laws to humanity.

5 - Elects: <12>Accept Paravipras as the Chosen Ones to establish and enforce the Laws, and to spread the Messages of God and establish the Kingdom Of Heaven.

Five Observing Commandments (Yama):

6 - Non-violence: <13>Not violating the Daharma. In understanding this Commandment, we should first define what violence is.

<14>Violence is the deviation from a set of rules and regulations.

<15>Therefore, non-violence in this Commandment means: Do not deviate from or violate the Laws and regulations of the universal set-up (Daharmas).

<16>However, because one of the greatest Laws of the universe is to refrain from inflicting pain or injury on others by action, thought, or speech, this has been used as the meaning of the word "non-violence."  <17>However, not inflicting pain or injuries on others for selfish desires is a minor meaning of non-violence. In a greater sense, it means not violating the Laws of the universe or nature, or in other words, following the Daharma of things.

<18>Even in its minor meaning, it does not mean to refrain from fighting for establishing truth -- that is escapism. And it does not mean non-injury when a wise injury might be the real cure for the disease physically, mentally, or spiritually. <19>In short, like everything else, non-violence can be of three kinds -- from ignorance, passion, or knowledge.

7 - Truthfulness, with Discriminating Mind: <20>To guide all thought, speech, and action with the spirit of welfare.

8 - Not to Steal (Non-Stealing, physically, mentally, or spiritually): <21>Do not take things which belong to others, by thought, by taking (action), or by preventing them from doing their duties or possessing things which belong to them.

9 - Non-Indulgence: <22>Not to indulge in the enjoyment of such amenities and comforts as are superficial to the preservation of life.

10 - Attach to God: <23>To keep the mind immersed in the ideation of God, to remain attached to God, and to accept Him as the only Refuge, the only King, and His Laws as the only Laws.

Five Actional Commandments (Niyama):

11- Internal and External Cleanliness: <24>To maintain purity and cleanliness of mind, body, and environment.

12- Contentment and Mental Ease: <25>To remain in a state of mental equanimity and contentment.

13- Satsang, Service, and Meditation: <26>To attain true Satsang (when people talk only about God, the universe, and His Will), to practice penance in the service of others (as being done for the Lord, in creating Communities of Light), and to sincerely meditate and/or do The Reminder at least twice a day.

14- Understanding God and His Laws through the Scriptures: <27>To clearly understand the underlying meanings of the Scriptures and discourses of spirituality.

15- To Be(come) Divine: <28>To strive to become perfect in our actions as God is, to ideate that He does the Divine actions through us, and to become a perfect instrument for His Will to be done, <29>until able to radiate His Divine Universal Truth through ourselves.
