    Genuine Masters

    First level of gross-conscious which relates to the sensory world (Jagath-Chetna). It encompasses all categories of life. As we reach this level of consciousness after rigorous discipline, and mastery over our senses/gross mind (relating to presently awakened consciousness) our mind acquires (becomes aware) knowledge of the sensory world. With the added element of extreme concentration, our will-power can make or de-make sensory objects. The persons who acquire these powers do not have to belong to the category of spiritual realms. They are simply mini-geniuses, who have assumed material powers through intense concentration on specific aspects (memory-chambers) of the mind. But in modern day, they are known as God-men because besides this, they have done one extra-exercise of acquiring scholarships of their religious scriptures. It is very easy to understand their level (in spiritual depth) as in spiritual discipline, their practical knowledge is nil. They cannot change or transform the character of their disciples. In simple terms, they can’t shower the treasures of Divinity – also known as Grace- on their followers, because they themselves are shallow of its depth. Mere scholarship of sacred books, mastery of senses, control over matter, are irrelevant to a seeker whose quest is Reality.
    In the search of genuine masters and of higher realms of consciousness, let us leave the dirt at the base (gross-mind) any try to know the purity of the sacred waters of knowledge at the surface (wisdom) where it is pure-clean-potent. We are not, now, discussing about the negative tendencies or the hollowness of the so-called holy men, but the levels of pure-consciousness, that we acquire by following the discipline expounded by different faiths/religions/sects. Each faith has mastered a discipline that releases a seeker from worldly shackles in consonance to the levels he has attained. But you will be surprised to know that there exists only one discipline, which is perfect and result oriented ‘Yoga’ mastered by Patanjali (ancient Indian sage) and being practiced, even today under various garbs but is showing excellent results. There are countless others, which either promise heaven or ultimate salvation which in each case is the reality or the Gods personified into narrowed limited scopes of human vision. Their version (assertion) of “heavens” “promised lands”; Godly-kingdom ‘Reality’ differs from god-man to god-man. In case some of them realized the Ultimate – Realty, they were non-committal about God.
    It shows either their realization level or Reality was not ultimate or they were unable to explain in clear terms, whatever they experienced as ‘Reality’ is incomplete and they did not or could not reach to the next higher levels, which could reveal to them, Existence and the Source of all.
    The next level of consciousness belongs to subtle-level which we can class as cosmic consciousness. This is the realm, where we know the true existence of our conscience. It is already an admitted fact that each entity synthesizes into fine subtle state, which is known as conscience. To reach its level of consciousness (awareness – knowledge) one has to cross the conscious-level of mind-intellect-wisdom and merge in the circle of conscience- consciousness.
    A few who venture into its realms, acquire the Universal powers. As one goes on attaining upper levels of consciousness, accompanying corresponding powers come natural and one behaves in that circle accordingly.
    Those few who attain this level of consciousness are the real masters whose duty is---self-imposed or enjoined by the Higher-one---to bless and bless grace, whose oceans are at their disposal. Though they are highly Selfish, but their selfishness is centered on their inner-Selfishness not on the worldly selfishness of material possessions. They also possess, but their possession is the treasure of bliss (love) not the mansions, dera, ashrams and temples.
    Their distinguishing mark is in their harmony of thought, word and deed. They live simply and exemplify their lives for others to follow. They speak less but live in practice their ideology. In the recorded history, very few have successfully been able to give practical shape to what they believed in and lived the truth they preached. They don’t amass but distribute. They don’t start new religions, preach not new gospels, and erect no temples. Their speech and attire is very simple. They have a hollowness that anyone with a bit of awakening could ‘feel’ and experience. They don’t plant religious nurseries but open schools-colleges-Universities-medical colleges which cater free services to all poor sections of society.

    But why do they bother to uplift the lot of the society, which is primarily the concern of the government, whereas they should be engaged in transforming the very characters of the humanity at large?

    If we totally depend on society or nation, past history warns us that each nation under the sway of powerful leaders or the cult of leadership, tried useless methods for the improvement of standards of its general public in the sphere of education and material prosperity. But each time the results have been similar, further degeneration and devaluation of human values, at the cost of the few – the elite of the society – the torch bearers, the slogans shouters; it were always these people who benefited. They filled their coffers and expanded their imperial realms. Or if ever there has been material progress, it was always at the cost of nature and the dehumanization of man. Material progress has enhanced man’s value in wealth but his finer values, the very basis of his character, have been eroded. Man is becoming like the machines he has invented. He has lost the balance with nature. Nature, he considers his domain and by understanding its intricacies, he wants to master it someday. Spirit, divinity – love, not being the essential components of his machines, he has discarded like rotten cabbage.
    It is because of these worsening (degenerating) conditions that second category of masters comes into the world and they reassert the worthiness of human values by their personification. By precept, example and practical applications, they elucidate to the world, the potency of spiritual edification by showing the possible results of their experimentation and demonstrations.
    This class of Masters realizes the cosmic-conscious level by their own effort. There have been hundreds of such Maharishis (great sages), Messengers and Prophets. Their second most important distinction is, each one left the legacy of a new religion. And most of the religions came to be known after their names.

    Without going into, what we have already discussed, it is a fact also, that there have been very few who could reveal something about the creation of the Universe! Whatever they have told us, are proving to be nursery tales. Is our earth only a few thousand years old? Does space contain only a million of stars (when there may be billions of galaxies). Is the sun, an important entity in the communities of the cosmos? Or if we accept the Gita philosophy, that each soul changes its wear like garments then it basically differs with some other philosophies, that the spirits (souls) of the buried followers shall be redeemed with the coming of the promised prophets. What I am trying to impress upon is not to condemn or nullify the gospels, truths or ideologies of current or ancient faiths and religions. I am simply trying to make a point that there exist different levels of consciousness in our minds, which represent the same levels as existing in the space. And as we go on awakening our conscious levels of memory (chambers) including wisdom, we acquire those levels and our inner-outer consciousness (intelligence) becomes one, which really is one.cont.........

    I've only read The Blind Watchmaker and The Greatest Show on Earth. In his own field he is brilliant but I don't think much of his anti- religious views. What is the theory of in certainty?

    The third level of consciousness actually has no level or state. It is whole-pure-eternal unto itself. This may be called, just to give it a worldly name, Supreme-Consciousness (Intelligence.). No human being or for that matter, any Master can attain to this consciousness while being in his physical body. A body of senses-mind-intellect-wisdom cannot enter its realm of still impulses. Though its love impulses encompass the other two circles, these are in different forms of pulses and energy. So any entity whether living or inert which is the composition of pulses and energy cannot enter its field of love-impulses. Any of its impulses which incarnate on its own accord and that too with some purposes, does not leave behind its symbols on earth. In human language they are called Avatars (Incarnation of god in human form). They do not leave behind any religion because they come from Truth and that Truth is love and love does not differentiate. They don’t come for the salvation of any particular caste-creed. Though they have to take birth like ordinary human beings, still they keep no active association with their worldly relations and friends. They are for all and all are for them.
    Only these entities come on their own accord and they choose their own time, place and parents. They come with a purpose and after fulfilling it, they leave, without leaving a trace of their worldly attachments or favored possessions.
    Only such persons know Realty, as they come direct from Realty and live and deport in Realty. Though they are not bound by karmas (actions) still they discharge their worldly duties like other mortals. But the difference between their actions and that of a mortal is that they perform them selflessly with greater zeal, perfection and love, for the benefit of humanity; whereas we perform them out of compulsion for selfish ends.
    In case a person, as you say, using his free-will acquires extra qualifications or qualities and thus is promoted to a higher circle, then should it be assumed that it was predestined or he has changed, not only his present destiny but also his future (birth’s) destinies as well? This poses a serious lacuna. A real Master knows about your past, present and future. But if you have changed your destiny, by sheer will-power (free will) then your future reincarnation (rebirths) and the likely preordained associations would also have to be mended accordingly. Will it not create confusion in the systematic scheme of Nature?
    You might have heard about hybrid plantation, grafting, transplantation cross-breeding, synthetic genes, test tubes babies, cloning and much more marvelous things that would happen in future. Human ingenuity would produce, in the coming age, wonders in the material world. All this has to happen. Man is bound to reach the ultimate heights of his intelligence. He has to go through all the three levels of consciousness, gross, cosmic, supra – conscious. If one is unveiled and elevated to higher degree of consciousness, he will realize, there is nothing in this material world, which is not already ‘written (predestined) even the presumable assumption of free-will is nothing but the conscious-level’s awakening of higher intelligence

    To satisfy Magnocrat's curiosity, below is a concise biblio of the l.s.:
    Since childhood, the l.s. was beset with one obsession---about the reality of God. Does He exist? Were Ram, Krshan, Jesus, and Prophet Mohammad, truly the re-incarnations of God? Was Lord Krishn a Puuran Avathaar (Incarnation of God in human form with all His attributes) of God---as is the general belief---while seemingly enjoying Rasleela (dancing bouts) with the Gopis (village damsels) and being married to thousands of wives? What is beyond death? Are human really born again? What and where are heaven and hell? Do the glittering star in the sky are living souls of the ancient wise whose sparkling lives are beckoning us to exemplify them?
    These were some of the questions to which the pigmy brain could not provide suitable answers. The fear of both Yamraj (angel of death) and DhaRaamraj (dispenser of celestial justice) was real and frightening. Every negative though was a sin. Every morning and evening, the God and Goddesses had to be propitiated. His mother and elder sister were staunch devotees and they performed endless worship, rituals and used to read sacred scriptures, the whole day unless they were involved in homely chores. There were also occasional sessions of Akhandpaths (continuous recitals of scriptures---day and night, for up to seven days. Those days, invariably were associated either with the birth days of the celestial beings or to some miraculous feats performed by them (God/Goddesses) ---like killing of demons to save the humanity from their terrors.
    As years rolled by, the charms of western life appealed to the raw heart more incisively and suppressed the old fears with the devastatingly more attractive pastimes. A yodeling playing in the celestial company of mythological characters of Mahaabhaaratha and Raamaayana (sacred Hindhu epics, composed by sage Vyaas and sage Vaalmeeki, respectively), was dousing in booze and other allied intoxicants. The result was the irretrievable degeneration. Sensual perversion was the in-thing. In the name of freedom from old myths, and customs, libido was openly indulged into. Hippy culture was at its peak. Contempt for our own religions, culture and civilizations---which existed before slavery---was the first prerequisite to become the member of the elite society clubs. Flaunting complete disregard to our old values, with the so-called modernity----modern living standards, where brother, sister, mother and father, each having a friend of opposite sex, under the same roof---was a fashion of the day. Swapping, homo, lesbians, pedophilia etc., were the (cursed) ‘in thing’. The l.s. was a witness to all this and he reviled in most of these depravities freely and shamelessly, to the surprise of none. Bribe was openly accepted. Menials drawing petty pay packets, spent millions on the marriages of their offspring, but no one bothered! This entire extravaganza was flaunted openly in front of the open (or should we say, the blind) eyes of all the concerned, but who cared! The authorities were the co-sharer in this nefarious game. Public funds to the tune of thousands of crores were being looted, guzzled by the corrupt politicians, bureaucrats, law breakers as well as the law enforcers, but not a soul stirred. Because there was not an enlightened soul around! All were scholarly giants; the product of physical sciences, the geniuses of material innovations and the mafia dons, now masquerading as politicians, social reformers and what not. Don’t be surprised to know, this is not something far off in history. The l.s. is referring to a period, when man had just landed on the moon and the stars of Indira Gandhi the then Prime Minister of India were in ascendancy!
    Strangely, but not surprisingly, while living and enjoying the fruits of debauchery, licentiousness, corruption and extravaganza, his depraved-self kept to its inner commitment and continued throughout---the search to find answers to the big question, in the classics of the Masters! The more dooming low it degenerated, more seriously it (it: because he was inert to the real-self) pursued the quest, in the oceans of ‘knowledge,’ which the ancient seers, sages, prophets, messengers and maharishis (Self-realised sages), had passed on to posterity. Actually tryst with these masters was not meant for little self’s inner conversion or transformation, but was mainly aimed to prove to his ‘logical’ mind that there really ‘existed’ no God, and hence was a rational atheist! To be scornful of our cultural heritage was the trade-mark of the affluent segment of society. This group was ably led by a self- proclaimed atheist---although he applied the prefix of ‘Pundit’ to his name. He belonged to a family which nourished on western values and this nation had the misfortune to be led by that man. He wanted to foster western culture, in the garb of socialism. The country had to pay a bitter price. After fifty eight years of independence, we have not been able to provide a morsel of food to more than half of its population: one room hutment: a pair of clothes and a glass of potable water---is a dream that a sixty crores of our accursed population is still hoping to realize. May be in the next fifty years! By then the have-alls---hardly ten percent---would possess still more, and the cursed figure of sixty would have perished empty stomach, leaving traces of their bone ashes in the fruits and vegetables, the elite would be served, in the form of manure. A good riddance and a unique way of banishing poverty; by banishing the very components, which comprise it! A big clap to the leaders, S-O---!
    By the year twenty four and half, the l.s. had read almost all the classics written or translated in the language of our past masters---whether these were authored by the literally giants or the religious icons. While critically evaluating the ‘words’ of the masters, the most glaring lacunae he found, which had him floored! When he had listed their revelations in black and white and by the time had prepared a comparative chart of their celestial ‘revelations’, and ‘words’---about the multifarious phenomena of life, resurrection, final judgment, Moksh (libration from the bondage of the cycle of birth and death), Nirvan, death, re-incarnation and God: he, surprisingly found that their ‘revelations’ were completely at variance with each other! Not had two masters agreed on any one of these ‘gospels’. Their treatises on these ‘subjects’ differed.
    So far he had been led to believe that all the prophets, messiahs, Avathaars had only one message to proclaim to humanity; the brotherhood of man, and the universal-hood of God. But what they actually conveyed was totally different in content as well as in precept! This baffled him the most.
    By this age his body had been wizened by its non-stop over-indulgence of physical pranks. He had realized all bodies behave in similar fashion in bed. That all bodies are same in nature! By loving one, one can fulfill one’s physical evolvement! This realization came, though early in life but not before it had spent lacks of ill-gotten money! (In late fifties and early sixties, earning lacs in a month and spending it too, was a lot of money!) After all, fast life had its positive side effects also! He went through so much, in such a short span of life that he had lived his life to its brim and there were no more physical heights to achieve; no more adventure to seek. He had extended and expended ten times more than the flights of his imagination. He had performed, in physical parlance, ten times beyond his physical endurance.
    Thus having fulfilled his physical indulgences, which by now had started to bore him due to the similarity of reactions, familiarity of places, repeating same tricks of the trade, when he decided to put a stop to this (dark) side of his personality and began devoting more time to his other side, his inner being, trying to find answers to questions nagging his brain! Uppermost were: How the first man was born? Where from he came? How the Creation came into being and who created it? What type of being He is? How is His brain? What is the purpose of this life? Why death? He did not want to be born, so why should he die either? He was quite afraid of death. He just wanted to run away to far off dense jungles and escape from the clutches of death! Eventually it led him there. But that is another story. These questions haunted him day and night.
    By now reading some Upanishads and the ‘works’ of Adhi Shankaraachaarya, especially Vivekchuddamani, and his commentary on Brahamsuther and, above all the synthesis of these all---the Srimadh Bhaagavath Geetha (celestial song of Lord Krshan), he found in theory, answers to most of his questions! But the interest in reading tickled his brain to raise deeper and deeper queries. However the more he read, the deeper his quest would go and his questions became more subtle. No master was satisfying his quest; no scripture could quench his thirst of ‘knowledge’! Fortunately his job and postings were such and there was always ample time and funds at his disposal. He utilized them profusely in the procurement of books and read voraciously. And believe me; he guzzled carts loads of books. Books on each and every subject except of course the mathematics. On whatever he laid his hands on, he read that, excepting again, the pornography as he have had enough of that in his practical life, as well as in the secret dens of his perverted mind. There were pleasure chambers, torture cells and what not. Nothing was bad enough for him which he did not read and tried in practice. Being an avid reader and voyeur of the night life, whenever he visited a city, he used to know only three types of places---bookshops, bars and pleasure houses!
    Gradually the shine of wine and woman lost its sparkle and there remained only the quest for ‘knowledge.’ As books too became scarce, and also his level of quest had gone still deeper, he now preferred and sought the company of masters. He sought them in the far flung corners of the country. He visited the holy places of all religions, as no distinction existed in his mind. He also had the rare privilege at those places to have ‘darsan’ (being at the lotus feet of the holy masters) ---of the ‘enlightened’ ones’, who actually had the elements in their control! This far, however, he was an atheist especially to this aspect of the divinity that no human being could be God incarnate!
    Despite this alienated behavior, his passion for reading and risky adventures, putting life to brimming extremes, were his usual pastimes. Reading philosophical works, especially abstract thoughts, was a passion with him, which he relished most. Incidentally it still persists in him, though in a different mode. Now he composes them impromptu. He had developed high degree of imagination, and simultaneously its contrast, the ‘killers’ instinct. Reading for ten to eighteen hours in a day was quite normal a routine, excepting during the days, which were though rare, he was down with the morning hangovers. This routine lasted for twenty-four years, excepting, of course, the lean periods when he was posted on non-lucrative posts. This period in modern lingo can also be described as the ‘five stars’ or ‘jet set’ culture. During this period he had acquired a mammoth data that were systematically stored in the memory chambers of his brain---subject wise and in chronological order. He had a top class memory. In a ‘limited’ sense he was a ‘walking’ encyclopedia, and this was not a shallow boast! There was not a subject about whose available knowledge he was not aware of! (But he was very poor in grammar and still is!). And this helped him in his, occasional bouts of seclusions. His imagination powered him to create, in his mind, his own imaginative ‘worlds’, after getting exhausted by exploring the existing ones.
    Then everything changed: This rationalist atheist was confronted with the ‘manifestation’ of Divinity in human form. His whole world changed. The evil streak in him---which would ruin whosoever came into his contact, suddenly took an about turn. The ‘self’ that consumed all that came its way, transformed the course of its quest. Earlier its every endeavor was aimed at negating the existence of God, now it got diverted to Him. Perhaps subconsciously he had been preparing his little self for this very purpose! As without firstly acquiring the known knowledge of the worldly sciences, hidden knowledge (intelligence) cannot be known. By knowing the physical sciences, inner ‘knowledge’ reveals itself, because the conscious that pervades the cosmos, permeates the individual cells too.
    The first thing that he did thereafter (1982) was, to de-hoard all the data that had been acquired so strenuously during the last twenty-four years of his life. This exercise continued during the next sixteen years of his period in service. As soon as he realized the fullness of its travails and enormity, he preferred to quit his job and sought premature voluntary retirement. Now he is relishing its aftermaths---the enjoining fruits……
    Today even without intoxicants, he is enjoying the inexplicable joys that an enlightened Self can bestow, in howsoever infinitesimal quantum It is ‘activated’. He is not a yogi or an enlightened soul; but surely, without the inherent burden of the self (individual), his inner-Self often ‘bestows’ him glimpses, which transport him into blissful swoons, lasting sometimes for days together. It is all His blessing and the ‘glimpse’ of His grace!

    Well you've been through the mill and had a good grinding and I don't doubt your brief honest account, at least it was first hand. Looks to me as if you've found peace at last from a life of turmoil. My life has been very mundane being among the lower ranks of wealth and supporting a family of four , who are all in the fast lane now.
    I'm the doubting Thomas type and since I have no sharp razor mind on many subjects I must take the consensus. Us westerners are not so spiritual as the eastern minds we are more sceptical : not pie in the sky but meat on the plate.
    From what I've seen of men and women they are a mixed bunch of alsorts with the occasional exceptional talent and subject to all the human faults just like me.
    ' And fear not lest Existence closing your account and mine,
    Should no the like no more;
    The Eternal Saki from that Bowl has pour'd
    Millions of by bubbles like us , and will pour.

    Genuine Masters ......4
    One can change one’s fate/destiny, if one imbibes necessary will-power, determination and earnestness of purpose. We are the masters of our fate. Then what is the role of the so-called masters in our lives? Even their contribution to humanity has been very insignificant as compared to the marvels of material sciences. Therefore, the roles of geniuses have been more important and result-oriented than the theologies of the Masters. Our rich cultural heritage is because of Sindhu, Harrapan, and Mohenjodaroo civilizations, not because of Puranic (Indian mythological tales) stories. Scientific inventions, discoveries are for the benefit of entire humanity. In every field, man has improved his living standards. And due to these, average age of man has increased markedly.
    Most of the masters who established new faiths (religions) were the scions of society. There are others who were from amongst the commoners. There is also no doubt about the spreading of their faiths. Either they (Masters) themselves were the creator of their religions or their class adopted the faiths of the commoners, as it suited them politically. As far as their (Master) authenticity about the realization of Truth is concerned, they rightly achieved higher-levels of consciousness but not one of them could attain to the level of supra conscious state! Though their followers believe their masters belonged to that level, but the actual teachings propounded by them, are not the repository of Truth – the whole Truth. Each of them attained some level of consciousness and proclaimed that as the ultimate – truth.
    Without going into the details of their theological revelations; discriminate them with the modern day science. Science is not different from spiritualism. Amalgamation of the two is the real balance that creates harmony in Universe. Science teaches us how a thing happens, whereas spiritualism tells us the source (why) behind that. About the period before the creation of this ephemeral world of materialism, the physicists and cosmologists are silent. But spiritualism tells us about the realms beyond.
    We are not here to condemn or play down the realized truth of the masters. Our humble contention is that, whatever they ‘revealed’ as reality, does not represent the whole-Reality! Not one of the Prophet/Messenger/Avatar proclaimed himself as God but only as His messenger or the Divine spark like others. They have explained clearly that each one of us is the spark of one divine father; that all are divine and imbibe a soul (spirit) which represents the One (Over) Soul. You are also right about the roles played by the Masters and their general influence on the common people of their times.
    First of all we should not compare their roles with the worldly rulers. The kings, dictators and conquerors have created and destroyed societies, cultures and nations. Similarly, since the advent of religions, there is in vogue the ‘State’ sanction to adopt a particular religion, and in every age religious zealots have been forcing their faiths on others, who happen to believe in other religions. Such forceful compulsion or conversion shows complete ignorance of the very tenets of their masters’ teachings. But this has been happening and shall go on happening as long as the personal inhibitions of man are related to the sensory world. It is not that we put too much reliance on the potency of our masters! Had it been so, there would have been no wars on religious differences and expansionism. Even the very founders of those religions either had to fight to establish their faith and died in the process, or were killed.
    The Masters, who founded religions and new faiths, were just like other commoners. The only difference, if there was any, was in the awakening of their conscious level, completion (attainment) of spiritual consciousness or the awakening of their individual self into the Supreme- Self, which is Universal-Unit of all the units. Man or spirit is not two different identities. Both reside and sustain on each other. Any man can become a divine or a beast. It all depends the ways he deports his senses; whether he sways under their pleasures or he masters them and divert their energies to higher and better awareness of mind (intelligence).
    The other point, regarding the recognition of each others divinity, is also valid. It is strange that a commoner happens to recognize the spark of divinity in the Master, he follows, but the masters, among themselves feign ignorance of each others ‘divinity’ and engage in mutual criticism! They ought to recognize their Source---which is one---and should spread His word of love, not their hateful vibrations which become the cause of mutual bickering and fight. People should beware of these pseudo masters!

    You have read Invictus the great poem by William Ernest Henley he declared he was the master of his fate. The rest he wrote is forgotten.
    Its a noble thought but a conceited one.
    The leaf floats down from its sunlit perch to join its fellows on the forest floor.
    It has fulfilled its purpose.

    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    In the fell clutch of circumstance
    I have not winced nor cried aloud.
    Under the bludgeonings of chance
    My head is bloody, but unbowed.

    Beyond this place of wrath and tears
    Looms but the Horror of the shade,
    And yet the menace of the years
    Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll.
    I am the master of my fate:
    I am the captain of my soul.
    William Ernest Henley

    It is a magnificent attempt to escape the inevitable. A last agonizing cry.
    Serene acceptance is a truer path;having run your course as best you can.

    "Serene acceptance is a truer path"
    leave the world, but not before understanding its drama of life&death
    The more i learn more i become aware of my ignorance
    Awareness of ignorance is wisdom

    There is no limit to understanding, but there is a limit to our stay. Greater than awareness of ignorance is its acceptance. For only then can the restless quest end and we are cradled in the arms of contentment.
