Christ's Mediation

Now is the time we should check-up and "give diligence to make our calling and election sure" (II Peter 1:10). Peter said "grace and peace are multiplied through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord." He said we are to "add to the foundation of faith [which is a clear understanding of the revealed Word of God], virtue [or spiritual strength], and to virtue, add knowledge; to knowledge, add temperance; to temperance, patience; and to patience, godliness; to godliness, add brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness, charity . . . without which, said Paul, we are nothing". 

Peter taught, "He who lacks these things is blind and cannot see afar off." In other words, he is not a genuine born-again Christian. Oh, he may pay his tithes, sing in the choir and never miss service. He may even be a minister, but if he cannot "see afar off" he lacks the evidence of the baptism with the Holy Ghost or new-birth. Jesus said, "the Holy Spirit will, [not might] guide you into all truth and show you things to come" (John 16:13). Or enable Christians to "see afar off". 

Grace and peace are multiplied through this knowledge. Knowing things that will come to pass in your day casts out the fear caused by uncertainty and imparts the peace of God natural men cannot understand.

So the evidence of being a genuine Spirit-filled Christian, is a clear understanding of all the Word of God revealed for your day, a perfect comprehension of what Jesus is doing now and what He will accomplish in the near future. In other words, you will "see afar off." And what you see will be THUS SAITH THE LORD because the mind of Christ will be in you.

James observed if you take all diligence to add all these virtues, not being a forgetful hearer but a doer, then you will be established in the "presenttruth," and God is only writing epistles of the present Truth. 

According to I John 1:7, "Unless our lives are manifesting the Light God is revealing now, we are not and cannot come under the blood, [or be born-again], nor even share true Christian fellowship." Unless we can recognize our day and it's Message, we are not Christians; not even called to at all.

Every genuine Christian will have the evidence of the baptism with the Holy Ghost. This means the Holy Spirit will guide him into all the understanding revealed for his day and show him things that must come to pass in his day, thus his life will be a written epistle of the present Truth—what Jesus is doingnow

Last week I was speaking with one of the listeners to our broadcast who said, "There is one Mediator between God and men, the Man Jesus Christ, and He's a Mediator forever and ever." (If you open your Bible at I Timothy 2:5, we will study this subject of Christ's Mediation).

I said to the Sister, this is not Bible teaching. And we read the Scripture in I Timothy 2:5, "There is one God, not two or three of them, and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus." It says nothing about Christ being a Mediator forever and ever. So I said to her, Jesus Christ is not a Mediator now. He has not been a Mediator since 1963 when the Seven Church Ages ended and the Seven Seals were revealed.

If we are Christians we will live by faith or a clear understanding of the present Truth so we will know what Jesus is doing now, because whatever it is He can only do it through us Christians by our faith. Regardless how dearly someone loves Jesus Christ and reads God's Word, without faith it is impossible for them to be a Christian and to please God.

If we imagine Jesus is a Mediator today when He is not it shows we do not know Him. We may love Jesus with all of our heart, but unless we know what He is doing now we have not received His love; the relationship is not mutual but our one-sided psychology of make-believe, and without the mind of Christ we are not Christians.

Now is the time we should check-up and "give diligence to make our calling and election sure" (II Peter 1:10). The Church or Body of Christ is led by the Spirit of God which is its Head, the Word. And if we are the Body of Christ we will be in the common faith or understanding, and we'll know what Jesus is doing now.

If we do not know what Jesus is doing now we don't know Him, cannot serve Him, are not baptized into His Body, and are not born-again Christians. We must have the mind of Christ in us. And His mind is not confused, not guesswork, but infallible and certain, knowing precisely what His Word means and what He is doing now (I Corinthians 14:8).

So "examine yourselves, whether you're in the faith; check while grace is still available. Knowing that Jesus Christ is in you, unless you are reprobate" (II Corinthians 13:5)! If your faith falls short of God's requirement be prepared to receive His correction and understanding. 

We will now consider the following five questions: 
  • What is a Mediator?
  • Why was Jesus a Mediator?
  • When did Jesus become a Mediator?
  • For whom did Jesus Mediate?
  • When was His mediation fulfilled?

What is a mediator? A Mediator is a "go-between"—one who stands between two parties in disagreement. If two parties to a contract have a dispute an impartial third party will stand between them and without taking sides restore them into harmony with the terms of that agreement.

A mediator should understand the frailties and necessities of both parties but his loyalty must be to the terms of the covenant. The Bible says "our High Priest understands our weaknesses, as He had the same temptations as we do, yet without sin" (Hebrews 4:15). He was loyal to the terms of the Covenant which is the Word, and He is that Word manifest in flesh to ratify the contract in His Own blood. He qualifies as the one and only Mediator between God and Men. He is both God and Man. Therefore He is an impartial Mediator. Jesus is the beginning of the creation of God, the start of God creating Himself, initially as the Logos, then just 2,000 years ago as one with Adam's race (Revelation 3:14).

Jesus was the go-between God and His elect because they were not in agreement on His unchanging Word. God is the Word and Jesus was that Word manifest in virgin-born flesh to fulfill the part of our Kinsman Redeemer. The Church Age saints were in error through ignorance of what was not revealed to their dispensation, but so long as the Bible was sealed they were only required to manifest the Word for their age. As Mediator Jesus interceded in their behalf by receiving their revelation of the "present Truth" and placing their ignorance of the fullness under the Blood so they were born-again.

Why was Jesus a Mediator? Why did God's elect require a Mediator? 
Stature of the Perfect ManIn other words, why were all of the Church Age saints in error? They were in error through their ignorance of the fullness of the Word because the Bible was sealed with Seven Seals "until the time of the end" (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:4). "The time of the end" commenced when Christ, having completed His Mediation for the last saint predestinated to the final Church Age, answered the call of the elders and claimed the Book of Redemption, opened the Seals and revealed their mystery to the "seventh angel" or messengerWilliam Branham who expounded their mystery for Christ's end-time Bride.

Christ was only a Mediator for ignorance so long as the Book was sealed. From Pentecost to the close of the Laodicean Church Age Christ was a Mediator between God and His elect who were in disagreement with the faith because so long as the Bible was sealed they had only PART-Word. The saints were all believing and preaching a measure of error until Christ claimed the Book, opened the Seven Seals and revealed their mystery to His elect. Men fell into error when they mixed this "PART-Word" with human reasoning, or guesswork (I Corinthians 13:10; Galatians 1:8-9; Revelation 22:18-19). This explains why Christ was a Mediator, and why the Church Age saints were in error.
In the Alpha age of Pentecost "Jewish fables" began to infiltrate the Body (Acts 15; Galatians 4; Titus 1:14) and in the Ephesian Age the saints "left their first love" the Word by tolerating the"deeds of the nicolaitanes" which promoted a clerical hierarchy that stood between God and men. In the Pergamean Age these "deeds" became enshrined in "doctrine" when the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church organized at the First Nicaea Council and began killing Christians and others who refused their Trinity of gods and false baptism in three Titles. The faith in the heart of the saints was lost when they were martyred by the false church, bringing the Dark Ages upon the Western world in the Thyatira Age (606) prior to which the saints were mainly converted Israelites.

The last three Church Ages of PART-Word saw the Reformation of the Catholic system of false worship. Not being prophets the Reformers sought only to return the church to what it was when it denominated at the First Nicaea Council, not realizing that this was where that it had fallen. 

They did not realize that Jesus ordained and recognizes only one Church, the one He established on the day of Pentecost. Nevertheless, the last three Church Ages restored the revelations of justification by grace through faith (not works), sanctification (or Scriptural holiness), and the baptism with the Holy Ghost.

In Pentecost and each of the Seven Church Ages Christ received the portion of WORD (PART-Word) predestinated for and revealed by the Message of the angel or messenger to their Age, and interceding for their ignorance of the fullness He placed their errors under the blood. By the virtue of faith the lives of His elect were written epistles of the Word for their day and they were born-again by grace of Christ's mediation for their ignorance (II Peter 1:1-12).

The next question is, "When did Jesus become a Mediator?" Good question! He certainly was not a Mediator during His earthly walk, for "without shedding of blood there is no remission of sins" (Hebrews 9:22). Prior to Calvary Jesus was the Prophet; He was not then our High Priest, or our King, and only potentially our Saviour.

As Son of Man He was the God-prophet who came to His Own and was crucified for His Bride. On the Day of Pentecost He received the Office Son of God, Parakletos, Advocate or Mediator for the Church Age saints. At the end of the Laodicean Church Age (1906 – 1965) and veiled behind the flesh of a sinner saved by grace He discerned the thoughts and intents of the heart, healed the sick and raised the dead, revealing Jesus Christ as Son of Man again"the same, yesterday, and today, and forever (Luke 17:28-30; Genesis 18; Hebrews 4:12). After Laodicea the revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form in the Office of Son of Man (John 5:7; Revelation 10:1-4).

All four Gospels foretell Jesus returning as Son of Man in W_O_R_D form to indict the world at the close of the Laodicean Church Age, and bring His elect"into the unity of the faith." Jesus is not a Mediator today.

At the start of the Millennium, the glorified Jesus will physically return to earth with the saints of all Ages, and step upon the ashes of the wicked after Armageddon has destroyed all life. He will not have the office Son of God and Mediator and neither will He be in the office of Son of man and Judge, but Son of David and King.

Christ was a Mediator from the Day of Pentecost when the Church was inaugurated. He was not and could not possibly have been a Mediator until the Day of Pentecost had fully come.

The average churchgoer thinks Christ was and is still a Mediator for everyone in the world. Regrettably, the average churchgoer does not think! Jesus was never a Mediator for everyone. To start with, because of original sin in the Garden of Eden, the majority of earth's population is not in Adam's race, consequently they are without a Saviour and not redeemable because Jesus is the "last Adam," He was not the last Cain.

Then for whom was Jesus a Mediator? Christ was a Mediator only for the elect of Adam's race—those predestinated to be born-again whilst the Bible was sealed with Seven Seals—that is, from Pentecost to the end of the Laodicean Church Age. He is not a Mediator today.

This is a stumbling-stone to the unthinking majority of nominal but false Christians, who say, "If Jesus isn't a Mediator, how can people be saved?" 

Christ's Mediation has nothing to do with salvation. It has to do with being born-again. Every individual in Adam's race is born "saved" because his name is in the Book of Life which is the genealogical record of the first Adam and all of his descendents from Abel to his last descendant born of woman, whoever that will be. In God's foreknowledge the Book of Life was compiled from the foundation of the world and Jesus died to redeem every one of those names. So long as their name is in that Book they are "saved." Those whose names were never in or are removed from the Book are lost.

Jesus' Old Testament type was Aaron, who interceded for the errors or ignorance of the children of Israel. Aaron was not a mediator for the Egyptians, Moabites, Canaanites or the mixed multitude that came out of Egypt with Israel, or for the peoples of the nations through which they travelled. He was mediator only for the chosen people or called-out ones. Aaron did not intercede for wickedness but for the ignorant mistakes of believers in their service to God.

Likewise, Christ was not a Mediator for the Buddhists, Muslims and Jews, but for the elect of God. He interceded for the mistakes they made in their Christian walk and for their ignorance or errors in the faith.

When was His Mediation fulfilled? Christ is not a Mediator forever and ever. Jesus was only a Mediator so long as the Bible was sealed with Seven Seals. His Mediatorial Office was to bring harmony in agreement between God and His elect. His prayer in Gethsemane was not for the world, but for the elect God had given Him out of the world. "That they all may be one; as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You, that they also may be one in Us".

That word "one"—"that they also may be one in us" means what Paul called "in the unity of the faith," or of the same mind in the "common faith." And when two are in agreement they are "one". 

Now God ordained five different offices in the ministry to edify and bring His elect to maturity in the faith so they would always have a ready answer for sinners who inquired of the hope within their heart. These offices of apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor and teacher will be in the Body or Church "until we all come in the unity of the faith, fulfilling Christ's prayer that we all may be one; as the Father is in Jesus, and He in the Father, that we also may be one in them". 

I would like to comment about regular house meetings without the presence of a minister or genuine born-again brother who is an elder in the faith, which is wrong. You should not conduct such meetings as they are likely to lead into errors that separate the brethren. This is what starts denominations and leads to confusion. You should not hold these meetings without an elder to keep the doctrine true to God's unchanging Word.

Christ is no longer a Mediator. He was only a Mediator so long as the Bible was sealed with Seven Seals. Daniel and Jesus said it would be sealed to the time of the end, "but in the days of the Voice of the seventh angel the mystery of God as spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began, should be revealed" (Acts 3:21; Revelation 10:7; I Corinthians 13:10).

That angel was the prophet William Branham. His ministry restored the apostolic faith (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11), finished the mystery of God (Revelation 10:7), and is now calling Christ's people out of the world church system (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 18:4) into the unity of the faith (Ephesians 4:13), for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation (Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 15:46-57).

In Revelation chapter five after the end of the Seven Church Ages the elders advertised for a Kinsman Redeemer. John wept because no man was worthy to answer the call to claim the Book or even look thereon, and without a kinsman redeemer all would be lost. Then the elders announced, "The Lion of the Tribe of Judah has prevailed. He overcame in the garden of Gethsemane, and He is worthy"!

John looked back to see a Lion but saw the bleeding, bloody Lamb coming from the sacrifice altar where His body lay as a memorial for 2,000 years while as High Priest He interceded for the errors of the Church Age saints. As the Lamb He was our propitiation and Mediator; while as the Lion He is King of kings and Judge.

In Revelation chapter four we see that the Seven Church Ages and Christ's Mediation are over because the seven portions of the Spirit which baptized the part-Word saints into the Body have left the earth and stand before the throne which is no longer a Mercy seat as there is no more blood. It is now a judgment seat on which an angry God is enthroned, holding the seven-sealed Book of Life. 

In Revelation chapter five, Christ took the Book which is the Title deed to all He has redeemed. He tore open the Seven Seals and sat down as Judge. He is no longer in the Office of Son of God and Mediator; He is now Son of Man, King of kings and Judge as foretold in John 5:27 and the Gospels.

Denominational believers jump up and down and speak with other tongues without receiving the new birth because they are under the "strong delusion"that Christ is still Son of God and Mediator, when He's Son of Man and Judge. They have no idea of the "present Truth" because they are not "walking in the Light as He is in the Light" but impersonating the glare of a bygone day. Hence they have fellowship neither with the Lord nor with genuine Christians, and without faith in the "present Truth—what Jesus is doing now the Blood of Jesus Christ cannot cleanse them of their sin (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7).

Revelation 4, 5 and 10:1-7 were fulfilled in 1963 when the last saint foreknown in the Laodicean or Pentecostal Church Age was baptized into the Body and Christ's ministry of Mediation was fulfilled. Christ was only a Mediator so long as the Bible was sealed. He is not a Mediator today.

The elect of this day do not require a Mediator because we are predestinated to be born-again by the fullness of the Word through the revelation of the Seven Seals as the 144,000 elect Israelites are predestinated to be born-again by the fullness of the Word through the revelation of their Seven Trumpet mysteries. Thus we were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary whereas the PART-Word saints required a Mediator. Since that which is perfect—Christ the fullness of the Word has come by the revelation of the Seven Seals—PART-Word and mediation for ignorance is done away (I Corinthians 13:10).

Let us check up on what we believe. If we don't understand what we believe, we are without the faith and our knowledge is in vain. Let us study to show ourselves approved of God, not man, rightly dividing the Word to recognize our day and its Message. radio087.htm

When Jnana Jyothi Amma went to visit a relative at the General Hospital, to her surprise she was called over to meet a Yogi, also admitted at the hospital. The Yogi blessed her, and spoke to his aid about Amma in Tamil. Only several years later did she come to know that the Yogi who called her over to his bedside and blessed her was Yogi Ramsuratkumar of Tiruvannamalai.

When I was with Supramania Swami on my second visit to India in 2005, I was blessed to witness a miracle in his (Swami’s) kudil. After all the formalities, later that night at 7.30pm, Swami led me on a prayer. His wife and son had gone out. He started chanting his guru, Yogi Ramsuratkumar’s name (Nama japam).

It went, "YOGI RAMSURATKUMARA, YOGI RAMSURATKUMARA, YOGI RAMSURATKUMARA JAYA GURURAAYA". As it was a simple mantra, I followed suite and chanted along.

After about a few minutes into the recitation I thought I heard a third voice - that of a male chanting together. I started to listen harder. In that quiet and silent moment, I could hear Swami’s voice. I could hear mine too. There was no one else in the kudil. Yet I could hear distinctly another voice. So who was this third person chanting with us? 

I did not open my eyes. The mysterious voice continued chanting with us. Eventually after about twenty minutes, Swami ended the japam and the voice was not heard again. Imagine, I had wanted to ask him about this third voice throughout the japam, but completely 'forgot' about it as Swami made his way out of his altar room into the living room of his kudil.

Later upon returning to Tiruvanamalai after visiting Tavayogi Thangarasan Adigal at Kallar, Supramania Swami suddenly asked me, “Did you hear the voice?” triggering my memory back to the first day at his kudil. 

I remembered that I had actually heard a third person sing along with Swami and me. I ask Swami who it was. He gave a loud laugh. He answered, “That was Visiri Matai” referring to his guru Visiri Swami (Yogi Ramsuratkumar).

Although Supramania Swami had five gurus - his own father Jayaram Pillai was his guru, Pundi Mahan or Aatru Swami, Kollimalai Swami, Sathananda Swami and the Yogi himself, Swami chooses to invoke the Yogi at prayer. Was it his wish that I should witness this miracle take place and should know the greatness of the Yogi?

Such was the extend of devotion towards his guru by Supramania Swami that he could call upon him (Yogi Ramsuratkumar who had gone into samadhi on 20 February 2001) to appear among us. And such was the grace of the Yogi that he chooses to appear before his disciple. 

Swami tells me the Yogi had appeared one late night, after having attained samadhi, at Swami’s home in the village of Nachanananthal. The Yogi presented a painting of himself to Swami before disappearing.

Just before I returned to Malaysia, I accompanied Swami to the Yogi’s ashram on a Pradosham day. Swami sat in front of the Nandi and was absorbed in watching the abhisegam for a long time. His gaze was fixed on the inner sanctum throughout the Pooja. What was he watching?

Swami very much wanted to move from his village closer to the hill and Yogi’s Ashram. So we built a kudil which was walking distance to Yogi’s Ashram. From the kudil one had a beautiful view of the hill. Swami had a small window provided for that enabled him to see the hill while reclining on his bed. But I noticed that he had closed up the window with a gunny sack. When I questioned him, he told me he could not see the hill anymore. His answer, "It was fire". The Yogi too was of this opinion. He was always saying that the hill was fire. Supramania Swami also told me he was seeing Siddhas moving and roaming on the hill.

When the Yogi was nearing his samadhi, sadly Supramania Swami was not allowed near him, as many others too, by opportunists who took control of the ashram. Nevertheless, as Swami was waiting to see the Yogi among the rests of the devotees, the Yogi sent for Swami. Only then did the Yogi attain samadhi.

Eager to know more about the Yogi, I looked around for information on him. I came across some beautifully written books on the Yogi.

1. BIOGRAPHY OF YOGI RAMSURATKUMAR - THE GODCHILD OF TIRUVANNAMALAI (AMARAKAVIYAM), published by S.Parthasarathy - An elaborate account of Yogi’s life.

2. MEETINGS WITH YOGI RAMSURATKUMAR by Will Zulkowsky - The Yogi always preferred to be with Will.

3. YOGI RAMSURATKUMAR - THE MYSTERY OF BECOMING GOD by Olga Ammann, published by Yogi Ramsuratkumar Bhavan Mauritius, 2008 – A beautiful book that brought me to tears. A must read book for all those in search of a guru and also for those who already have a guru. This book teaches us to cherish our gurus.

4. YOGI RAMSURATKUMAR - THE GODCHILD OF TIRUVANNAMALAI by Truman Caylor Wadlington. The Yogi had personally asked Wadlington to write this book.

5. WAVES OF LOVE, published by Yogi Ramsuratkumar Bhavan Mauritius, 2009.

6. YOGI RAMSURATKUMAR - THE DIVINE BEGGAR by Ma Devaki, published by Yogi Ramsuratkumar Ashram, Tiruvannamalai July 2008.

7. GURU VAZHI in Tamil by Balakumaran, Visa Publications, Chennai, 2005.

So who was this Yogi?

S. Parthasarathy has given a very elaborate account of Yogi’s life in his book, BIOGRAPHY OF YOGI RAMSURATKUMAR - THE GODCHILD OF TIRUVANNAMALAI (AMARAKAVIYAM).

Parthasarathy writes,

‘Without adopting any rituals and not leaning on any traditional conditioned customs of the religion, Ram Surat Kunwar (the Yogi’s original name) braved his path with the pure faith upon his Guru and reached the other shore safely. Mysterious were the ways of the Masters who worked on him and brought him to Tiruvannamalai for the sake of his children who should also cross this mighty ocean of Samsara. Without preaching any conventional religious practices, Yogi asked the people to remember his own Name which would evolve them to the highest Spiritual State.’

Just going through some of Yogi’s statements from this book is sufficient to enable us to understand the Yogi. Even after several earlier visits to Swami Ramdas, Ramdas did not inspire the Yogi. The Yogi has this to say about his guru.

"Papa (Ramdas) did not allow this beggar to understand Him. The time was not ripe. This beggar had to wait till Papa Himself revealed His Divinity to this beggar, to make this beggar understand that Papa was his Father." – Yogi

Ironically when finally the Yogi accepted and surrendered to Ramdas, Ramdas did not receive him well.

‘Systematically Swami Ramdas and Mataji Krishnabai made Ram Surat Kunwar behave like a mad man and made the world believe that he had become mad. They drove him out of the ashram forcibly so that he would remember them constantly. They used harsh language whenever he was before them among the crowd of the devotees. By doing so Swami Ramdas and Mataji Krishnabai removed his ego totally. But it took a very long time. In the process, the pain, the sufferings he experienced were acute.’

‘Ram Surat Kunwar again asked Swami Ramdas to allow him and his family to live in the ashram. He said, “Papa, I have come here with the great faith that you would allow me with my family to live here. I am not able to work anywhere since the initiation. If you drive me away, where shall I go and how can I live?” Papa vehemently answered, “Go and beg. You cannot live in the ashram. There are enough people in the ashram to work. Remember, under a big tree, another big tree cannot grow. Only thorny bushes and grass alone will grow.” Ram Surat Kunwar shocked on listening to the words of his Master exclaimed, “Papa, should I beg for my food? Am I a beggar, Papa?” Papa, without answering, went inside. From that day Ram Surat Kunwar called himself a beggar. His Guru, His Master, His God asked him to beg and so he became a “beggar”.’

‘In later years Yogi Ramsuratkumar said “Nobody can love this beggar like my Father Swami Ramdas and nobody can torture this beggar like my Father Swami Ramdas. My Father killed this beggar because He loved this beggar. This beggar died at the holy lotus feet of my father Swami Ramdas in the year 1952. After that my Father alone exists and not this beggar. This name Yogi Ramsuratkumar is not this beggar’s name; it is the name of my Father. Father would always shower his grace on the people who remember this name.’

The Yogi has the following advice for other aspirants on this path,

“All your tapas and efforts would make you reach Guru’s Feet. Thereafter you need not bother about your spiritual growth. The Guru will take care of you. The Guru will see that you reach God. Even if you want to escape from the Guru, the Guru will not leave you. Like a frog in the mouth of a King Cobra, the disciple cannot escape from Guru. The only thing the disciple should do is remember the Guru and the Guru Mantra all the time. That is sufficient. Do not try to practice any method to reach God. Remember your Guru. That’s enough. Once you reach your Guru your sadhana efforts end here. Listen to your Guru and have faith in our Guru. Your Guru would take the responsibility of you and take you where you ought to reach. After reaching Guru’s feet, you need not worry about your spiritual growth. Just remember my Name. That is enough.” - Yogi

“The King Bee would bring any potential worm to its nest and would sting all the time till it becomes another King Bee. Likewise a Guru also works on his disciples till the disciples get the state of the Guru. The process is painful but there is no escape.” – Yogi

“You can salute and shower respect and reverence to all the saintly persons but you should have the trust and faith only in your Guru.” – Yogi

“Talking ill of the Acharyas, Sadhus and Sannyasis will prevent one from reaching Father. Father comes in all these forms. Criticizing the forms of Father is a serious mistake and this beggar does not like his friends to commit this mistake.” – Yogi

“The place where a Master dwells becomes an ashram but no ashram can produce a Master.” - Yogi

The Yogi talks about his teaching and himself,

“If this beggar walks, it’s a teaching, if he sits it’s a teaching, if he talks it’s a teaching, if he eats it’s a teaching, if he sleeps it’s a teaching. His whole frame is always blessing and teaching. People need not ask this beggar to bless them. This beggar is always doing that.” – Yogi

“Whenever my Father wants this beggar to talk, this beggar talks, whenever my Father wants this beggar to keep silence, this beggar keeps silence, whenever my Father wants this beggar to laugh, this beggar laughs, whenever my Father wants this beggar to weep, this beggar weeps. Wherever my Father keeps this beggar, whatever my Father does with this beggar, this beggar would just submit to his Father’s will. This beggar knows Father cannot commit any mistake. Whatever He does, He does for the good of the whole cosmos. So, nothing is wrong in this world, nothing is sin in this world. Every thing happens, happens by the will of my Father. So, nothing is wrong in this world. Everything is perfectly alright.” – Yogi

“Whatever happens happens by the will of my Father. So nothing is wrong. Every thing is perfectly all right. My Father cannot commit any mistake. So, nothing is wrong." - Yogi

He assures those who come to him with problems that all is fine and to accept it all,

“My Father wants you to go through this stage. It happens even in the lives of the saints. Do not bother. My Father is always with you. Whatever happens happens by the will of my Father. So nothing is wrong. Everything is perfectly alright. See God in everybody and in everything. My Father alone exists. You have not committed any mistake.” - Yogi

“Whatever happens happens by the will of my Father. So nothing is wrong in this world. Everything is perfectly all right. My Father alone is the doer and my Father cannot commit any mistake. So everything is perfectly all right. Whatever happened happened by the will of my Father. Whatever happens happens by the will of my Father. Whatever will happen, will happen by the will of my Father. Remember my Father. Everything will be alright. Remembering my Father is Life. Forgetting my Father is death.” - Yogi

“Everything happened, happened by the will of my Father. So, nothing is wrong in this world. Everything that happened is perfectly alright, because my Father cannot commit any mistake. Everything is my Father. My Father alone exists in everything and in everywhere. People who see my Father in all the things are always near and dear to my Father and you people are near and dear to my Father. Whatever happens happens by the will of my Father. So, nothing is wrong in this world. Everything is perfectly alright. My Father cannot commit any mistake. So, accept whatever comes as a blessing from my Father. You know what Kunti Devi demanded from Lord Krishna? “Krishna give me sufferings in all my births so that I could remember you all the time.” See, the sufferings are blessings, grace in disguise. So, accept whatever comes whether it’s joy or sufferings. It’s all from my Father. Remembering my Father alone matters, all other things are irrelevant.” – Yogi

The late C.Rajagopalachariar or popularly known as Rajaji had written a beautiful song, Kurai Ondrum Ellai Maraimurti Kanna, Kurai Ondrum Ellai Kanna, in Tamil. This song was popularize by Srimathi MS Subbulaksmi. This song exactly depicts Yogi’s advice. This happens to be the Yogi’s favorite song too.

The Yogi speaks on his mission,

“This beggar is not meant for the masses. Let the masses go to the other saints. This beggar is here to create a few individuals who can do My Father’s work.” - Yogi

“My Father has sent this beggar for a specific work. This beggar needs a few people to do his Father’s work. This beggar is doing that work. See the door. The door is always closed. This beggar would see only those people whom my Father sends. This beggar is not meant for the masses. Let the people go to others. This beggar does not need a crowd. This beggar needs only a few people who can do my Father’s work. All other saints have done great works but this beggar did not do anything. Some saints built temples and ashrams, some others did great works and gave philosophies, some others preached the way to Father and the way of life, but this beggar leaves behind him only his Name. Yes My Father will ever be with you. Remember my Father by chanting His Name and He will look after you.” - Yogi

“The Masters have their own way of doing the Father’s work. The real work is, uniting, merging the chosen beings with my Father. That’s all. We were together, we are together and we will be together. We cannot exist without each other. When Lord Siva comes, He comes along with His Ganas. When a Guru comes, he comes along with his dearest disciples. When the Guru departs, the disciples also would go after finishing my Father’s work. We are all together eternally.” – Yogi

“I can only say that, whatever exists is one life. Unity: nothing is separate, nothing is isolated. This beggar is related to the Sun, to the Moon, to the Infinite Cosmos. This beggar is not limited to this body. All of those who are present here are not separated or isolated. They are part of me. You see this Champak Tree, you see this Amla Tree, and they are all part of my Life. They are not separate. They are not isolated. I am in all these parts with all these leaves. I am the Total. I am the Whole, Absolute, Indivisible, Eternal, Limitless Life, Infinite Life. We are all one together, united, perfect unity in Father. That’s all. That’s all I can say.” – Yogi

“The Atma is always pure and holy. None can corrupt it. None can dirty it. None can hurt it or harm it. Atma is always Pure. We are that Atma. We all are that Atma. You are that pure Atma. You cannot be ruined. My Father says you are eternally holy and pure. You are always under the protection of my Father. You need not worry about the past. You are always pure and holy.” – Yogi

On the need of a separate meditation hall,

“The people who enter into the ashram will be in meditation and so there is no need for a separate meditation hall in the ashram complex.” - Yogi

The Yogi frequented J.Krishnamurti’s lectures,

“J. Krishnamurti came directly to this beggar and patted him on his back and this beggar slept”, repeated the Yogi several times and made one understand that after the touch of J. Krishnamurti, he was able to be in the deep samadhi state.

The Yogi always reminded others around him of the significance of his Name. He repeatedly says,

"This name Yogi Ramsuratkumar is not this beggar’s name. It is my Father’s Name. My Father has invested in this Name. Whoever remembers this name my Father will come to their rescue. Catch hold of the Divine Name and go on doing your work in the world. That’s enough. Remember this beggar’s Name, Yogi Ramsuratkumar. You need not do any other rituals other than chanting the Name Yogi Ramsuratkumar. The Name Yogi Ramsuratkumar is not this beggar’s Name; it is my Father’s Name. For this beggar’s friends, this Name Yogi Ramsuratkumar is enough. If you remember this Name, you need not worry about your spiritual growth. My Father will take care of you. My Father will see that you will reach my Father safely. For all other people, let them remember any other God’s Name which they like. My Father alone exists. Nobody else. Nothing else. In the past, in the present and in the future, My Father alone exists.” – Yogi

"Have faith in my Father. Have faith in my Father’s Name. This name Yogi Ramsuratkumar is not this dirty beggar’s name. This is my Father’s Name. Remember this Name that is enough. This beggar is enough for you people. There is no need for you people to go anywhere in search of my Father. And my Father will take care of us. We need not bother about our spiritual growth.” - Yogi

The Yogi speaks on rituals,

“This beggar has no knowledge of the religious rituals. All the rituals and religious practices prescribed in the Vedas should make one reach the feet of the Guru, if these rituals and religious practices are done with all sincerity. Once you attain the feet of the Guru, then you need not worry about your spiritual growth. You need not do any rituals also. It is enough to listen your Guru and remember your Guru. Your Guru will take care of you and he will take you to the destination. Where there is love, bakthi, there need not be rituals. All the other mantras and the rituals are for the other casual people but for the friends of this beggar, this name Yogi Ramsuratkumar alone is enough and this name would take them to the Holy Lotus Feet of my Supreme Father." - Yogi

On Pranayama,

“The people should do the Pranayama under the guidance of the Guru, at the proper place. Otherwise it will not give you the required result. It will produce a negative result which will cause a severe set back in one’s system.” - Yogi

“The good people are always spiritual people. This beggar is here to create good characters among the people. These people need not be religious; they should be good, honest. That’s enough. My Father will always be with them. Ramayana helps people to become good, shedding off their bad way of life. So, become good first. My Father will come to you. Go through Ramayana and Bhagavad Gita. Your life gets the transformation. You will understand the grace of my Father. The great sages and saints helped humanity to evolve towards my Father by protecting and giving great Rama’s and Krishna’s Stories.” - Yogi

On other subjects,

"Kaliyuga has gone. Now it is God Yuga. This beggar is able to see God everywhere and not Kali anywhere.” - Yogi

“We are here to do Father’s work. To do my Father’s work we should retain a little ego.” – Yogi

One last word from the Yogi,

“Love all, hate none, serve all and take lot of Nellikkai. Remember this beggar’s Name Yogi Ramsuratkumar all the time.” – Yogi

We get to know further about the Yogi from the book, MEETINGS WITH YOGI RAMSURATKUMAR by Will Zulkowsky.

Swami was a very complicated being says Will,

‘You are not dealing with a simple thing, you're dealing with somebody who is highly, highly complex and light years out, and we can't even fathom it so. There's just, like, endless ramifications about; every time you cross a line, you knew you crossed a line [laughs]. He lets you know very quickly that you crossed the line, and boom, that was it. And once you got the correction, you made the adjustment. But, that was his rules.’

‘If you asked him anything like, “What is kundalini?” he would just say, “Ah, what does this filthy beggar know about kundalini? That's for scholars and that's for real yogis. …” ’

On other gurus,

‘And Swami himself told me - each of these teachers comes for a certain group - he thought that J.Krishnamurti would more appeal to people who are more in the mind state rather than in the devotional state. The mind people, who have to explain everything.’

On chanting the name,

‘The name was big thing. Supposedly your name has like a vibration in the universal who you are. It has a vibration … with your soul that's taken that vibration.’

‘And that's what he did … Because he was working with these elemental forces and blessing that place (his ashram) with such a power, absolutely astounding. And all you have to do is walk into it and stay there for a while and be open, and something will happen to you. But to me that's the great miracle, not pulling something out of a hat or materializing something, This is the smartest man I have ever, the most aware man I have ever talked to in my whole life.’

‘He always just said he thought the name of Ram was enough. That's all you had to do. And he would say, if anybody chants the name of Ram, that's enough. And he didn't put down anything, but he just said that chanting Ram nam was all that somebody could do. And then he told me about etheric markers; he said that, like that name of Ram has been repeated so many times, it's like, in the air. He said he said, his work is in the air. He has been the vehicle of transformation, and he always said that if people would chant “Yogi Ramsuratkumar”, then they could tune in to who he was on some level, and that would be transformational – a vibrational transmission. He was very adamant that the name Ram is all you need, but he wasn’t pushing anything down anybody’s throat. He always said he tried to go to the path of whoever came to him. If they wanted to come and talk about Marx, he talked about Marx. He didn’t divert their path; he only tried to go with what they were interested in. He was very flexible that way.’

‘He said that in the old days the scriptures were in the air and all you had to do was be silent and you could tune in to the scriptures and hear them. He could feel it, he could live it. But now there is electromagnetic interference from the TVs, from the radios, from the short waves, the cell phones, from all the static we’re putting in the air electronically, and it’s interfering with the scriptures – it’s a big impediment. He says that’s why the dharma is falling, because people can no longer hear the scriptures when they are quiet. “Your satellites are interfering with this beggar’s work.” He was so sensitive that he could feel what the influence of the satellites was and what they were up to.’

To a question,

‘Why are saints incarnated in India, particularly? - Well, he said, in this Yuga India has always been the playground of the saints because where else in the world, even though you’re a nobody, with nothing, will they give you food and shelter and honor you and revere you? There’s no other country in the world.” He said that’s why the saints always incarnate, take birth in India. In other countries they would be locked up in some mental institution – treated like freaks. He also said that there was a lot of persecution of the saints, especially in the middle Ages in Europe. He said that’s why the saints love to come to India and keep incarnating there over and over and over again, because that reverence is always there for them.’

‘Swami had one love. It was lemons. He loved lemons. We call them limes. So whenever I went to the bazaar to get (something for him), it wouldn't be flowers, it would be lemons, because every time anybody came, he always gave them a lemon.’

‘After these experiences I realized that all change only comes from Grace and that our individual efforts on the spiritual path do not really count for too much.’

We go through a must read book for all those in search of a guru and also for those who already have a guru. This book, YOGI RMSURATKUMAR - THE MYSTERY OF BECOMING GOD by Olga Ammann, published by Yogi Ramsuratkumar Bhavan Mauritius, 2008 teaches us to cherish our gurus. Olga too was instructed to write about the Yogi.

‘In those days and nights, our Yogi, like anyone who walks along the path towards Realization, must have had a number of experiences that are unimaginable for us. These experiences, as he himself affirmed, canceled his identity to the last crumb. They left him totally empty. That is to say, before meeting God, it is necessary that man be shaken by something like a cataclysm, he must be crushed.’

‘Yogi Ramsuratkumar could see Reality, that is to say the noumenon, what is hidden beyond appearance (phenomenon), beyond sensible experience. On the contrary, what our eyes see is only maya (appearance, illusion), lila (cosmic play). All Yogis’ devotees will recall Bhagavan sitting with us or walking among us, and all of a sudden looking up, and after a few seconds bursting into laughter. He laughed heartily. We had the feeling that he saw something none of the devotees was able to perceive.’

‘Therefore, at a higher level – the one of Yogi Ramsuratkumar – what is generally called evil, violence, abuse, has its cosmic function. So, even what in human eye appears as the most tragic evil, ultimately is nothing but good: it is God’s grace.’

‘Bhagavan gives whatever is required when we require it. The Guru does nothing for himself, everything is for us. The desperation we experience, the resentment we feel towards him, and the estrangement we ourselves bring about, all these emotions are natural and necessary stages in the progression towards faith, and are guided by his concern for our growth.’

Yogi once asked a devotee: “Don’t you have a Guru in Calcutta?” “Yes, I have”, the man answered, and told his Guru’s name. “Then, why don’t you follow him? Why do you need to visit this beggar?”

“This beggar has not built an ashram or temple. This beggar has not written any books either. There’s nothing about this beggar’s life that’s inspiring. But he has left a Name for mankind. Out of his love, Father has given a Name – the Name Yogi Ramsuratkumar – to humanity, for its benefit. This beggar’s Name is in the sky. This beggar’s Name can be heard in the sky.” - Yogi

“This beggar has no mind. So, this beggar has no plans. This beggar cannot even pray. Every thought, every word, every gesture of this beggar is controlled by Father who runs the whole cosmos” - Yogi

“This beggar doesn’t ask Father why. This beggar simply obeys. Father knows. He runs the whole universe” – Yogi

Now let us look at another book on the Yogi - YOGI RAMSURATKUMAR - THE GODCHILD OF TIRUVANNAMALAI by Truman Caylor Wadlington. The Yogi had personally asked Wadlington to write this book.

‘Ramsuratkumar was walking in the radiance of his soul and its pure energy was entering into him. But as he learned the joy of spiritual life, so too, he learned equally as well the distress of mankind. His eyes were wide open to the tumult, the blindness, and the suffering around him. He laughed with men and he cried with men, for his heart knew the spirit of life’s love and the anguish of man’s bitter toil.’

‘He saw that his greatest potential as a beneficent force in nature lay not in divorcing himself from the world he sought to aid, but in integrating himself with it. And he knew that it was for him to walk amidst the people and secretly to unveil their souls and unlock their hearts and free them from the prison house of matter.’

‘In this supreme mood of vision, his heart went out to the world. he understood fully his life and mission, and he gave himself over to that work which was not his alone, but which was the mutual endeavor of all those who are the custodians of the plan, work which is beautiful in design and in conformity with the creative purpose of the divine.’

‘He became the joy of participation in the divine plan, the joy of helping to solace a needy world, of bringing light to darkened souls, and in healing to some measure the opened sore of the world’s distress. From that moment onwards Ramsuratkumar’s life was consecrated to the service of the world.’

We refer to the book, WAVES OF LOVE, published by Yogi Ramsuratkumar Bhavan Mauritius, 2009 for some more revelations about the Yogi.

“It was the third chance to visit Ramdas. The two great Masters (Bhagavan Raman Maharishi and Sri Aurobindo) had passed away. This beggar thought to himself, “'Let me try again to visit Ramdas, for he is recognized as a great sage. So in 1952 this beggar did not go to Tiruvannamalai, nor did he go to Pondicherry, for the Masters were not there. But this time Swami Ramdas turned out to be an extremely different person. At the very first sight, Ramdas could tell a number of intimate things about the life and mission of this beggar which nobody but this beggar knew. It was then that this beggar first understood that the great master Ramdas was this beggar's Father. Swami has killed this beggar, but life has come. Millions and millions of salutations at the lotus feet of my Master, Swami Ramdas! He has initiated this beggar in Ram nam and has asked to chant it all the twenty four hours. This beggar began to do it and in the space of a week, this beggar has got this madness. The same madness still continues.” – Yogi

‘In the course of the wandering, his inner voice, the voice of the Father would direct him to a particular temple; but after he arrived there, the voice would direct him to stay by the side of the temple and not enter it. Similarly he would be directed to talk to a person or bow to a person and he had no choice except to obey. The Infinite was accomplishing His purpose through the actions, speech and gestures of the Yogi, whose surrender was so complete that there was no independent thought or action other than that which was prompted by God.’

‘Thus he was teaching us by example more than lectures, how to evolve into cultured human beings.’

‘His constant advice was to remain satisfied with whatever situation one found oneself in, realizing that it was part of the Divine will. “In truth,” he used to say, “there is only one will at work and that is Father’s will. It is therefore perfect, good for the individual, humanity and the cosmos.” – Yogi

We end this pilgrimage with yet some portions from Ma Devaki’s YOGI RAMSURATKUMAR - THE DIVINE BEGGAR, published by Yogi Ramsuratkumar Ashram, Tiruvannamalai July 2008.

‘According to Sri Yogiji, the four years of tutelage under Sri Aurobindo and Maharishi Ramana were a period of ceaseless transformation of the human into the divine - a period of construction of all that was conducive, destruction of all that was dross and sublimation of all into greater and greater awakening. His days see-sawed between heights of ecstasy and depths of gloom.’

When finally the Yogi came to Ramdas,

‘He was already a ripe fruit needing but a gentle tap from the sage of Kerala for final consummation with God. Now a divine madness, bordering sometimes on the vestiges of insanity, gripped him uncontrollably. Yogi Ramsuratkumar laughed and wept, sang and danced and yet other times sat still as a stone or rolled on the ground, ecstatically overwhelmed by beatific surges of divine consciousness.’

“This beggar doesn't know why he would do a certain thing and not the other. You see, it's all madness. Whatever Father wants this beggar to do, that this beggar does, no matter what. Father's work is done. That's all.” – Yogi

“This beggar has been assigned a great mission. And this beggar does his work in every step he walks. Seeing people and blessing them is only a small fraction of my Father's work. Most of this beggar's work is hidden.” – Yogi

“This beggar has no material to give you. For messages, you must go to people like Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, Ramana Maharishi, my Master Swami Ramdas, Ram Thirth etc. Enough has been said already. This beggar has no new message to give you. But Father has given a name to the world that can liberate people the name Yogi Ramsuratkumar! That's all!” - Yogi

The Yogi when about to leave this mortal body explains graciously,

‘“Father makes this beggar suffer for some cosmic balance.” But he added, “This beggar can do much better work without this body”, allaying fears of the devotees.’

‘Well, such was his surrender to his Father's seemingly unsympathetic will that he would only say, “All Fathers blessings. Father knows what to do, when and how. This beggar cannot question Father like you people do!”

When a question was posed to him whether he had seen god? the Yogi replied, “Is there anything else to see?"

I wish to thank the following authors and publishers for the material used here.

சுழுமுனை தியானம்

அகத்தியர் பாடல்

மதிரவியும் பூரணமுங் கண்வாய் மூக்கும் மகத்தான செவியோடு பரிசமெட்டும் பதியவிடங் சுழுமுனை என்றதற்கு பேராம் வேறுபெயர்கள் அடிமுடி, சொல்லற்ற இடம், ஒடுக்கம் , வஸ்து. மவுனம், கேசரம்

சுழுமுனை என்பது அண்ணாக்கிற்கு மேல் உள்ளயிடம். மனத்தை சுழுமுனையில் நிறுத்தி வாசி இடகலை மற்றும் வடகலை அக்னியில் கூடி மூன்றும் ஒன்றாகும். உள் சென்ற காற்று பத்தாம்வசலில் ஏறும், மூக்கில் காற்று வெளியே வராது. ஐந்து புலன்களும் ஒடுங்கும். ரவிமதிசுடர் மூன்றும் ஒன்றாகி உஷ்ணம் கிழே பாயும். உஷ்ணம் உடம்பை வேதித்து காயசித்தி உண்டாகும்.

சுழுமுனை தியானம் 

நன்றாக கால்களை மடித்து நேராக அமர்ந்துகொள்ளுங்கள். கண்களை மூடிகொள்ளுங்கள். மனதை அண்ணாக்கிற்கு நேரே சுழுமுனையில் நின்று, நாக்கை மேலண்ணத்தில் அழுத்தி, பின் தொண்டையில் காற்றை அழுத்தி சுழுமுனையை நோக்கி செலுத்தவும். மனதை அழ்ந்த அமைதியில் வைத்திருக்கவும். காற்றின் அசைவை மேல்நோக்கி மனதையும் சேர்த்து அண்ணாகிற்கு மேல் செலுத்தவும். சிறுதுகாலம் சென்றபெறகு பலபல வண்ணங்கள் தோன்றும். பின் கடைசியாக ஒரு சிருஒளி வெண்மை நிறத்தில் தோன்றும் பின் அதுவே வளர்ந்து அளவில்லாத எல்லையிலததாக மாறிவிடும். இப்போது கண்ணை மூடினால் இருட்டு தெரியாது வெறும் வெளிச்சம் தான் தெரியும். பின்னர் அந்த வெள்ளை ஒளிக்குள் ஒரு பொன்னிற ஒளி தோன்றும். அதுவும் எல்லையில்லாமல் வளர்ந்துவிடும். பின்னர் அந்த பொன்ஒளிகுள். ஒரு செவ்வொளி தோன்றும். அந்த ஒளி எங்கும் எல்லையில்லாமல் வளர்ந்து நிக்கும். பின் அந்த ஒளிக்குள் ஒரு ஒளி உருவாகும் அது வந்து வந்து செல்லும். இதுவே நடராஜர் நடனம் ஆகும். பொன்னமம்பலம் மேடையில் நடராஜர் நடனம் நடக்கும். இப்போது நாம் ஒரு பொருளாகவும் செவ்வொளி ஒரு பொருளாகவும் இறுக்கும். பின்னர் நீ நான் என்று வேறுபாடு இல்லாமல் அந்த பொன்னம்மபலமே மிஞ்சும். (அட்டகம் -- தந்தனை தன் மயமாக்கி ....). பின்னர் எல்லையில்லா ஆனந்தம் உடலில் பாயும். வானவேடிக்கை நடக்கும் ஆயிரதுஎட்டு தாமரை இதழ் மேல் சிவலிங்கம் தோன்றி மறையும். அதன் பின்னர் இப்போது கூடவே சங்கு ஓசையும் பின்னர் சலங்கை ஓசையும் கேட்கும். பின்னர் அமைதி நிலவும். பின்னர் பொன்னம்பலத்தில் ஒரு ஓட்டை ஏற்படும் அதுதான் சொர்கவாசல் திறப்பதாகவும். ( காகபுஜண்டர் பாடல் -- கொல்லிமலை ஏறி குகையை கண்டு குகையில் இருந்து தவமே செய்தால் ....) . இப்போது உள்ளே செல்லும் காற்று வெளியே வராது. இடகலை, பிங்கலை மற்றும் பொன்னம்பலம் மூன்றும் ஒன்றாகிவிடும் இதுவே முச்சுடர் ஆகும்.( அகத்தியர் பாடல் -- ரவிமதிசுடர் மூன்றும் ஒன்றது ஆகும் பின்னர் தணலாய் கீழ் நோக்கி பாயும் .....) கனல் போல் உடலில் வெப்பம் பரவும். உடல் வெப்பத்தில் வேதிக்கபடும். பின்னர் எல்லா காட்சிகளும் மறைந்து நான் நீ என்ற இரு நிலையும் இல்லம்மல் போகும். இப்போது பத்து திசைகளும் தெரியும் உங்கள் உடல் பற்றிய நினைப்பு மறைந்து எல்லையில்லாமல் நாமே விரிந்து விளங்கும். பின்னர் அந்த நிலையும் போய் இப்போது இங்கு என்ன நடக்கிறது என்றே தெரியாது. இதுவே சும்மா இருக்கும் இடமாகும். அந்த நிலையில் எவ்வளவு நேரம் நீடித்தது என்றும் தெரியாது. கண்ணை திறந்தால் சிலமணி நேரம் கடந்து இருக்கும். இதுவே அருட்பெரும் ஜோதி அனுபவமாகும். இந்தநிலையை அடைந்த பிறகே அறிவு துலங்க ஆரம்பிக்கும். தன்னை பற்றிய அறிவும், உலகத்தின் இயக்கம் மற்றும் இறைநிலை பற்றிய அறிவும் விளங்கும். இதன் பின்னர் ஞான பாதை துலங்கும். அதன் பின்னர் என்னவாகும் என்று ஆண்டவர் அறிவித்தபின் எழுதுகிறேன்.

கண்களின் ஒளி --- நட்சத்திர ஒளி .
மனதின் ஒளி --- வெள்ளை ஒளி .
ஜீவனின் ஒளி --- பொன் ஒளி.
ஆன்மாவின் ஒளி --- செவ்வொளி

ஆன்மாவுக்குள் -- பதியாக அருட்பெரும்ஜோதி ஆண்டவர் விளங்குகிறார். நானே கடவுள் என்று சொல்லுவதை விடுத்தது என்னுள் அருட்பெரும்ஜோதி ஆண்டவர் இருக்கிறார் என்பதை உணர்ந்து தத்துவ நிவர்த்தி செய்து அவரோடு கலப்பதே சித்தி நிலையாகும்.

--- உயிர்.

குருவே சரணம்

குருவே சரணம்

ஒருவருக்கு வாழ்வில் என்ன கிடைக்கிறதோ இல்லையோ குரு கிடைக்க வேண்டும்.

நம் வாழ்வில் அம்மாவே முதலில் எல்லாம் கற்றுக்கொடுக்கிறார். பின் தந்தை. அதன் பின் பள்ளியில் ஆசிரியர்கள் உலகாயத வித்தை கற்றுத்தருவர். நாமே பலரைப்பார்த்து பல விஷயங்களை கற்றுக்கொள்வோம். இதெல்லாம் லௌகீக சமாசாரங்கள்.

நாம் உலகில் பிறப்பது கர்மாவை தீர்த்து, ஆன்மீகத்தில் முன்னேறவே. அப்படி முன்னேறுவதையே சரியான முன்னேற்றம் என்று சொல்லலாம். நமக்கு ஏற்படும் மற்ற வசதிகள் - நல்ல வேலை, பணம் காசு, வீடு என்றெல்லாம் அமைவது இந்த முன்னேற்றத்துக்கு உறுதுணையாக இருக்கவே. இது ஏணிதான். ஏணியிலேயே யாரும் உட்கார்ந்து கொள்வார்களா என்ன? அதன் உதவியுடன் மேலே போக வேண்டிய இடத்துக்கு போக வேண்டும். அது போல கிடைக்கும் இந்த வசதிகளை அனுபவிப்பதிலேயே நம் வாழ்க்கையை கழித்து விடக்கூடாது. ஆன்மீக நிலையில் மேலே போக பார்க்க வேண்டும்.
இந்த பயணத்தில் வேதங்களையோ, சாத்திரங்களையோ, அல்லது நாம் நடந்து கொள்ள வேன்டிய முறைகளையோ சொல்லித்தருபவர் ஆசான், ஆசார்யன். அதன் படி நாம் நடந்து வரும் போது சில சமயம் சரியான நேரத்திற்கு ஒரு வழி காட்டி வந்து இப்படி போ என்று சொல்லிவிட்டு போய்விடுவார். அத்துடன் அவர் வேலை முடியும். இவர் வழிகாட்டி, மார்க்க தர்சி. ஆனால் கடைசியாக கூடவே இருந்து முக்திக்கு வழி காட்டுபவரே உண்மையான குரு.

எல்லோருக்கும் ஒவ்வொரு குரு இருப்பார். அவரை கண்டு பிடிக்க முயற்சி செய்ய வேண்டும். இல்லையானால் ஆன்மீக முன்னேற்றத்தை அதிகம் பெற இயலாது. திருப்பித் திருப்பி பிறந்து கொண்டே இருக்க வேண்டியதுதான். குரு அருள் பெறாதவர்களுக்கு அவர் உலகின் மறு கோடியில் இருப்பார் என்பார்கள். அந்த மறு கோடி எது? உலகை ஒரு சுற்று சுற்றினால் அடைவது நம் முதுகு பக்கத்தைதான் என்றார் விஷயம் தெரிந்த ஒரு குழந்தை! அதாவது நம் பார்வை அவரை விட்டு எதிர் திசையில் போய் விடுகிறது! ஆனால் அவரோ நம்மை பார்த்துக்கொண்டே இருக்கிறார். சினிமா போல கவர்ச்சியான இந்த உலக வாழ்க்கையிலேயே உழன்று கொண்டு இருந்தால் குரு கவலையுடன் பார்த்துக்கொண்டு இருப்பார். எப்போது அதை விட்டு ஆன்மீகம், இறைவன், குரு என்று பார்வையை திருப்புகிறோமோ அப்போது சந்தோஷமாக நமக்கு உதவி செய்ய ஆரம்பித்துவிடுவார். அவரிடம் முழுக்க சரண் அடைந்துவிட்டாலோ கேட்கவே வேண்டாம்; அப்புறம் பிரச்சினையே இல்லை. நமக்கு வேண்டியதை அவரே பார்த்துக்கொள்வார். ஆனால் இந்த பூரண சரணாகதி என்பதுதான் ரொம்பவே கஷ்டம்!

அது வரை அவர் சொல்லுகிற வேலைகளை முழு முயற்சியுடன் செய்து வர வேண்டும். அது நம் புத்திக்கு என்னதான் 'சில்லி' யாக தோன்றினாலும், என்னதான் முடியவே முடியாது என்று தோன்றினாலும்! நாம் கடை தேர ஒரே நிச்சய வழி இதுவே!........
