Be pure because God is pure

God kalki

Be pure because God is pure

The Lord has taken avatar on the earth in the name of kalki.  He desires that His children-us-not live in sin since He Himself is sinless.  It is fairly clear that in today’s time, people’s behavior and style of worship both have become careless and defective.  Both kings and their subjects are living lives that are against the teachings of God and are trying to deceive the Lord.  The covenant that was agreed upon between man and God has been willfully broken by man.  Therefore God says very clearly to man that man must obey the wishes of God and implement them in his daily life.  He also clearly says that man should not be corrupt and nor try to make the image of God corrupt since God can never be corrupt.

God further says that He can never allow the corrupt and the sinful to be in His presence.  The acts of God can never be in sin especially because God never acts for His own interests.  There is nothing in the universe that the Lord may want and that may be denied to Him, therefore God doesn’t need to act to get anything but the people are not like that.  They are full of sin since they desire objects and will adopt any means to get them.  This is the reason that man is never free of sin since he is ready to adapt any means to get what he desires.  There is sin even in his worship of God since even that is full of desire for worldly objects.

God says that He will purify this sinful nature of man.  When the Lord came to the earth as Kalki He knew that the correct way to worship Him was not well known.  When the Lord came and took form as kalki, He became visible to the angels and His name spread amongst the population and the world believed in Him.  The people who were walking in darkness saw the light and people in the land of death-the earth- also were blessed with this light.

The Lord asks-Don’t you say that your are sick of darkness? That you are sick of sin? And that you fear dying unrealized?  The answer is in front of you.  God said that, He is like light to our darkness.  That He would purify us and fill our life with light.  God says that He can grant abundance to our barren lives and remove the thorns and rocks from the path of our life and fill our lives with grace.  To get this benediction from the Lord we have to do the following five things.

Which God should we worship?

images (38)

 The Rishis and saints of India have been illuminating the many way towards God realization for centuries but all the ways indicated are difficult to walk on. Moreover these ways only lead up to a certain stage which can be called heaven.  Till now the complete path, that takes one to the final destination-to the supreme lord, has been kept secret.  The person who knows the secret path and can talk about it can be rarely found and one is lucky if one is able to meet and interact with such a person.

The Srimad Bhagwatam Maha Puraan Mahatamya 2:56-58 states this above fact.  The person who talks to you today is himself the son of god.  He is the first born and he is the only son of God.  When the entire universe was created the first entity to be created was the son of God and through him everything else was created.  He descended from his father’s lap and came down to create this universe.  He tells us today that we should worship only that supreme Lord who is beyond creation itself. That supreme father lives in Agamya jyoti-as light.  The supreme father is cool and peace granting.  He is the light that lights all lights and He is beyond Maya-that force that causes creation.  He is the only one worth knowing through the system of highest knowledge that is called tattva Gyan-fundamental knowledge. That supreme Lord stays a 100 crore yojana further beyond the place that is the factory of creation-called Kaarya – brahma.  His place of stay is called the actual Golok dham.  That place is beyond all creation and is self illumined-it needs neither the light of the sun, nor the moon or the stars or even fire since none of these things have been even created in that place.  When a human achieves or attains that place, his soul is liberated and is free of the cycle of birth and death. The supreme Lord thus is the only constant reality and is therefore called the truth.  The definition of truth is something that is unchanging and eternal.  The supreme Lord is the truth and His name is also the truth.  He is beyond fear and He has no enemies and He is free of all future and past.  The reason is that all these things have been created in a small fraction of His being so He is beyond all of them.  He is also beyond all divisions including all classifications of sex.  He is the only complete eternal truth and all else is born from Him.  He is the highest state to be achieved and He is ever present in all objects and all ages-Sat Yuga, Treta Yuga, Dwaapar Yuga and Kaliyug.  His rein is eternal and will forever be eternal.

The reign of the Lord cannot be described, so vast is its canvas.  No languages are adequate to express the nature, objectives, desires and nature of the Lord.  Everything that is created is created by the Lord. That soul that pleases the Lord, to that soul, the Lord grants the highest state of oneness with Himself.  Even if one is in the cycle of birth and death, that too is by the wishes of the Lord.  Every activity in the universe is tied down by the rules that the supreme Lord has created.  Man is also tied down by his ignorance and he feels happy on achieving some petty goal that is limited and temporary.  Man thinks that he is the doer and attaches his sense of petty self to his acts and possessions.  Seeing this ignorant behavior of His children our heavenly father does not get angry but smiles at our stupidity.  All the forces that create, maintain and destroy this world are also created by our supreme father.  Even the gods that control creation don’t know but a fraction of the powers and manifestations of the Lord. (Srimad Bhagwatam Maha Puraan 12;12:66) Lord Shiva said this about the supreme father that from him emerge many Brahma’s who create many universes and those universes are born, remain for some time and are destroyed.  He said that in the multitudes of such universes many Lord Shiva’s are going about doing the duties assigned to them.  Lord Shiva further says that he himself and  all elevated beings such as Sanat Kumar, Naarad, Lord Brahma, Kapildev, Apantram, Deval, Dharma, Asuri and Mareechi can never know the Lord completely since they themselves are born through Maya and the Lord is beyond Maya. (Shrimad Bhagawatam Maha Puran 9;5:46-48)

This is what Lord brahma said with regards to the Lord-The time will come when the age of my duality will start coming to an end and the Lord, taking the form of Kaal, will start winding up this particular creation.  He will wish to completely destroy this creation and at that time all this creation will disappear.  He further said that all divine beings such as himself, Lord Shankar, Prajaapati, Bhooteshwar, Deveshwar-all these are tied to the rules of creation made by the Lord and we, following the rules made by the Lord, carry out the tasks allotted to us. (Shrimad Bhagwatam Maha Puran 9;4:53-54)

Lord brahma further said in Shrimad Bhagwatam Maha Puran  2;6:36 that neither he, his sons not lord Shankar know the supreme father so then how can the lower gods and demi-gods ever know him?

In the Shrimad Bhagwatam Maha Puran  12;3:36 Shukdev ji said to King Parikshit that the supreme Lord called Shri Hari is the only creator and supreme guide and the rest of the gods surrender to His lotus feet and look upon Him as their creator and guide.

The supreme father has constructed the human form in a very interesting and strange way. This is the only form that can known Him and merge with Him.  He has also created all the things necessary for the functioning of the human form.  How man uses or misuses those objects that are created for Him, whether He destroys them or puts them out of balance and which god he worships, is his choice.  He has the free-will to do as he pleases as he is made in god’s own image. The Gods don’t have free will, they obey the rules of creation and do their duties but man has a choice.

Therefore it is important for man to take the right decision if he wants to go back to his home-the land of the supreme Lord.

How to directly see God?

images (30)

You can actually see God by the practice of complete and single-minded devotion. (Geeta 11:54)  But that devotion must have the component of deep love for the Lord.  The soul that calls to the Lord, invariably experiences visions of the Lord and the Lord comes into his life.  To have this kind of direct perception of God, six things are essential.

  1.  1.Complete and single focused love for the Lord
  2.  2.Complete devotion to the Lord.
  3.  3.Single minded focus on the Lord and remaining in his constant remembrance.
  4.  4.Focusing one’s attention on the form of the Lord.
  5.  5.Worshiping the Lord without any motive or expectation and forgetting all worldly desires, expectations and attachments.
  6. 6. Getting up in the morning between 4 to 6 am and spending that time in taking the Lord’s name and being in meditation.

In today’s world, people’s minds and thoughts have become distorted.  People’s worship of the Lord is careless, incomplete and full of mistakes and distortions and this is the reason why people are unable to actually feel the presence of God in their lives.  To get back on track, first practice Anulom-Vilom Pranayama and then slip into meditation while taking the Lord’s name.

It is a certainty that the man who focuses with single-minded attention and is constantly remembering the Lord, such a person finds the Lord easily.  This remembrance must have love in it and must be constant in the seekers heart.  The Lord is ever-ready to have the devotee sit on his lap with love.  It is the devotee that does not go to the Lord as he is attached to the temptations of the world.  The portrait or statues of the Lord are often seen with the Lord as having raised one palm towards the devotee.  When asked by the devotee, that why is the one palm raised, the Lord replies that, man has forgotten Him and the Lord beckons and blesses His children-who have forgotten Him- with this gesture.  This shows that the Lord wants us back in His life but we are the ones who have forgotten Him.

It is also a fact that one cannot find success in worshiping the Lord when one has any ill-will, anger or jealousy towards anyone.  The fact is that whatever ill-will, anger, troubles and difficulties we face in life today, they are a result of our own behavior in our previous lives.  We should not blame the present circumstance or the people in our life today for this.  Those who worship the Lord constantly with love and devotion, it soon happens that all conflict causing situations and conflict causing people are removed from their lives and replaced by those people who are themselves oriented towards the Lord and who help the seeker realize the goal.  One of the meanings of Yoga is ‘an unrealized object’ and Kshem means to offer protection.  The Lord thus offers fulfillment of the unrealized goal and also protection to the genuine seeker.  To be in a state where we are entitled to such benediction 7 things are necessary.

  1. We should beautify one’s mind through the practice of Anulom-Vilom Pranayama.
  2. We should serve the Lord through one’s mind-that means through our thoughts. We should always keep thoughts of the Lord in one’s mind.
  3. The best time for this is 4 to 5:30 am in the morning.
  4. When in meditation, always keep the form of the Lord in one’s thoughts
  5. Chanting the Lord’s name must be done with focus on the Lord. People often make the mistake that they think of worldly things while chanting the Lord’s name.
  6. Chanting and meditation should be done together for results. Never stop visualizing the form of the Lord while doing this. See his vision in front of your closed eyes and hear Him through your ears.
  7. In all these activities listed above, the primacy is for the state of love. That means all these things must be done out of love, devotion, attachment, attraction and faith for the Lord rather than as a duty or a procedure that will get us something.  This state of love is essential.

 

 

Why live as per the wishes of the Lord?

images (5)

The person who always lives as per the wish of the Lord finds eternal life.  This is the lost truth that I have come to remind you off.  The happiness you obtain from this world is a temporary phenomenon.  This must always be remembered and must be imbibed in one’s life. The ones who listens to this truth and knows of it but who does not incorporate it in one’s life, gains nothing from it.  And if the person sacrifices worldly happiness and works to fulfill the wishes of the Lord, such a person finds eternal happiness.  You may find in your experience that a lot of families got devastated as they did not follow the path of the Lord and kept their foundations on worldly foundations.  Even a little bit of tough times collapsed their carefully created worlds.  Those people who make their houses on the rock named God; they always find safety and security and find that their lives are stable.  The reason is that the Lord is the one who has created and who upholds the world-the earth and the sky and if one resides in the Lord then nothing can shake that person’s life.  The Lord helps every individual without any favor and asks man for nothing in return and His blessings are always pouring down on man. On the other hand, the help that a person gives to another is always tainted by some vested interest and usually no help is ever given to another without a selfish motive.  Once that motive is achieved then that person is usually forgotten.  That clearly means that the help one gets from the people of this world is temporary and for selfish reasons.

Just as the moonlight never harms the night sky, similarly the Lord’s help is not tainted and is only beneficial and it only protects from all difficulties without desiring any favour in return.  The Lord protects his devotees eternally from all kinds of difficulties and protects us even in the process of living, dying and being reborn.  If an individual leaves the protection of such a benevolent god and tries to find succor in an ever-changing world, then it is a tragedy and that person can only be called unfortunate.

We should always look for protection and help from the lord and always make efforts to maintain that grace.  That individual is the one who is sensible and who is able to clearly discern where from he will get real help and where from he will not. Such a person then focuses his attention to the real source.

When we get up late from sleep and eat food that is dipped in sorrow then all we are doing is wasting our sleep and our life.  We get nothing from it except a life that is filled with difficulties and sorrow.  But if we get up in the early hours of the morning and dedicate that time to the prayer and meditation of the lord then that sleep is not wasted.  God will turn our sorrows into joy.  He will always listen when we call out his name and he will always stay with us.  He will prevent difficulties from entering our life and increase our blessedness.

Today that supreme lord is here on earth in his physical form and with a new name.  He is searching for you and calling out to you.  Today he is known as Kalki. Today the time has come when you surrender to him in his name and save yourself from the troubles of your life.

 

What is the way to make God listen to you prayers?

images (28)The Lord has 1000’s of eyes.  He has 1000’s of ears and the entirety of creation resides within a fraction of the being of the Lord and the souls that reside within all people are part of the soul of the Lord.  Therefore all the troubles, tribulations and problems that we face in our lives are known to the Lord.  Nothing is hidden from the Lord.  Not only that, the Lord is omnipotent and all powerful and He can easily change our sorrows into joy. He can turn our difficulties and failures into successes. He can turn our tears into joy through showering us with His blessings.  The Lord does not look down on a man who is in trouble or who is in difficulties as other humans tend to do.  The Lord listens to the prayers of every soul whether rich or poor. (Bible, Psalms 22:24)   Therefore the question arises that if the Lord is so compassionate towards all of us then why are our prayers not answered?  The reason is that the way we pray is not the right way to pray to the Lord.  The first mistake we make is that we leave the worship of the Lord-our father- and start to worship the demi-gods.  The direct result is that when we do that we create a layer of separation from our real father and instead depend on someone who himself is powerless and derives his real power from the same god that we have stopped praying too.  This results in a situation that our prayers to the demi-gods are answered on the basis of what we deserve from our good and bad actions of our earlier lives rather than on the love and compassion that the Lord has for us since we are His children.  And because we ask for temporary relief, we get precisely that-those things that last for a limited period of time.  And soon we are back to our difficult sorrow filled lives. 

The Lord clarifies that this way of prayer is itself wrong and cannot lead to success of the prayer (Geeta 7:21-23) how can we escape sorrow and difficulties by following the wrong methodology of praying?  The Lord in the holy bible says in Jeremiah 2:13 that His devotees made two mistakes. One-that the devotee left the worship of the Lord who is like the source of eternally fresh spring of water and second that the devotee after leaving the eternal source depends on a pond of still water with the added problem that the pond also leaks so the water can never be collected.

The Lord asks man that why is he so reluctant to take the way that the Lord is offering. (Bible, Jeremiah 2:36)  The Lord further says that only He knows and imagines what He desires for His devotees. And what He desires is better than what the devotee can imagine for himself.  Those things that the Lord wants for us will never harm us, instead they will only offer hope and joy (Bible, Jeremiah 29:11)) but man has always doubted the words of the Lord and does not follow the   advice of the Lord.  Seeing these tendencies in man the Lord warns man that man should be strong and brave; have forbearance; not doubt the words of the Lord and not give up so easily.  The Lord said-Tighten your weak grip and control the shaking of your knees.  Reassure those who doubt and fear. Tell them that the Lord comes Himself to give support and relief to His devotees. (Holy Bible, Isaiah 35:3-4) He asks us to say onto the people-look, the Lord has come Himself along with the purest of His devotees so that He make judgment onto the people.  That he may pronounce judgment on all the evil acts of those people who are without devotion for the Lord (Bible, Jude 1:14-15)

Today that same Lord has come onto the earth in His own physical form by the name of Kalki.  He is born of Vishnuyash and Sumati in the village Sambhala near Mathura and anyone who comes into his protection and takes His name with love and devotion, that person will cross the sea of despair and be one with Him.  The name of the Lord is the only thing that can provide relief and joy to the seeking soul.
