<1>Why are the seven churches in Asia? It is because all the great
Prophets of the seven churches have come from there.
the same time, the mystery of the seven
energy centers of the
body (chakras) was
revealed to humanity in this region (Asia), through the Far East
<3>What are those seven spirits? They are the
seven truths that lead a man to become a
son of God.
< 4>They are the seven spheres of the universe. As the body of
the man has seven chakras,
also the universe has seven spheres which are called "Lokas."
"Behold, he cometh with
clouds; and every eye
shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of
the earth shall wail because of him. Even so,
Amen." (Rev. 1:7)
means confusion. He comes whenever confusion comes to humanity. "When righteousness is weak and faints, and unrighteousness exults
in pride [confusion], then my Soul arises on earth" (Bhagavad-Gita
4:7). <6>"Every eye shall see him" means that those who have
their eyes (third eyes)
opened will see him. "They also which pierced him" means that those
who pierced him will be reincarnated also and see his glory.
<7>Also when it is said he will come from the
sky, the sky is the same as
Consciousness. So he will come from
Pure Consciousness to help those who need him. He comes as

also it means "I AM"
"I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard
behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet." (Rev. 1:10)
<9>"I was in the Spirit" means "I was in a
trance." The "voice of a trumpet" is the sound of many
which can be heard in higher consciousness.
"...seven golden candlesticks;" (Rev. 1:12)
<10>The seven golden candlesticks are the
chakras. When a human

"...one like unto the Son of man,..." (Rev. 1:13)
<12>John was not sure that the being he saw
was the Son of man, or
Christ. He could have been anyone. That means each person has
the potential to reach
Consciousness). In fact, it was John's own
"And he had in his right hand seven stars: and
out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword:..." (Rev. 1:16)
<13>The seven stars are the seven truths
that have been revealed to humanity through
Christ. We can say that each star refers to the Prophet of each
seal, which symbolically represents each religion or truth in The Greatest Sign.
<14>"A sharp twoedged sword" is the truth
which comes out of the mouth of a realized Soul (in
Consciousness) or from the mouth of
Christ. This sword cuts through superstitions and
ignorance, dispels the
darkness, and brings
light and truth to
"And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not;
I am the first and the
last:" (Rev. 1:17)
<15>What John really had seen was his own
spirit of truth which is within all humans. The person who begins
spiritual practices becomes fearful of meditating because seeing the
truth within is hard. That is why when he saw who he was, "one like
unto the Son of man" (which is his own
Soul), he was afraid
and "fell at his feet as dead."
<16>However, the Soul is kind and humble. That is why he (the Soul) "laid his right hand upon" John and
comforted him by saying, "Fear not:
I am the first and the last," which means, "I will be with you
in your progress from the very beginning to the end."

"Write the things which thou hast seen, and the
things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;" (Rev.
<20>This verse means, "Write the things which
have happened, are happening, and will happen." Therefore, The
Revelation is a brief explanation of the Plan of the Lord
God that will guide humans from
ignorance to the state of
(full realization of the reality behind this universe). It is an
explanation of what happened in the beginning of the formation of
the new race (generation) after Noah, and how the Lord
God will bring the human to the realization that he should only
utilize this body and all the gifts related to this body for

(The Revelation) shows how following the
false ego, being
under the influence of the power of the
tama guna, and being attracted to the power of
Maya will lead the human to destruction and death (ignorance).
<22>We can say that this book is a miniature
Bible. It reveals the real purpose of creation and shows how
all things have happened so far in order to bring humanity to this
point where everything seems so confusing. By understanding
The Revelation and the truth underlying
Sign and history, we can see that really there is no
confusion left. Only then can we realize the compassion and
mercy of our Lord God,
be able to appreciate all things in this universe, and find our way
to the goal (Pure
