The story of Adi Shankaracharya's debate with Madan Mishra is well known. Having defeated the learned Mishra, his wife stepped into the debate and knowing Adi to be a celibate posed a question on Love and intimacy ( which was one of the branches of knowledge). Adi Shankara being pure from birth was at a loss. He took grace time of 30 days to get understanding on this subject.

A King by the name Amarukan, had just passed away. Before the Kings body could be cremated, Adi adapted his body and knowing that karma is connected only with the body and not with the spirit which is only a witness, he gathered all knowledge on the subject of love and intimacy in only 3 days by playing the role of a householder with the queens. He dedicated the rest of this time to serving the kingdom.

The first person to observe that there was something different about the King was his favourite Queen. 

One day she approached him and said “ There is something different about you my Lord!” 

Adi Shankaracharya replied “ How do you mean O Queen?”

The Queen said “ Previously you would always enjoy my company and the intimacy we shared. We would look forward to being in each others presence and being personal as a couple. But now you somehow seem distant and aloof. I wish to be intimate with you, hug you and show my love, but you act as if you are a stranger.”

Adi smiled at the queen in understanding and replied “ O Queen, tell me - When you say you would like to embrace me, who do you mean by me? Who do you think I am? This body that you see or the Soul within?”

The Queen was surprised by this line of thought.

The King replied “ If you think I am this body that you would like to love and hug, I assure you that if I were to leave this body and die, this body would scare you and you would have it removed from your presence to be cremated just as you did a few days back.”

The Queen looked on pondering over his words.

“ But if you think I am a soul then I am beyond your body and form to love or hug. To love me you too would have to rise above your body and be awaken in your soul consciousness. Only then can you and I truly meet, truly love and embrace.”

Adi Shankaracharya stayed in the Kings body for 21 days. It is said that in those 21 days he brought great reforms in the kingdom. He used most of His resources in empowering and educating the people of his kingdom. 
As for the Queen, following their discussion and his subsequent demise, She became a saint.

Crystal Children

Dear G,

If I were to describe these children to you in brief, I’d say that they are very special children – whose nature is love, purity and clarity. They will be a joy to their parents and all those who come in the range of their lives.  Crystals will mostly be vegetarians even vegans (as adults if not as children) and they have a very clear agenda with their lives which may not fall in line with the way conventional people look at their lives and careers.

But to understand the place and purpose of such children in the current world, one would need a broader understanding.  You may read the matter below if it interests you, though you may find much of the material to be strange. I will try to make this short.

We humans are aware of changes that take place daily in nature and the seasonal changes that take place yearly. There is another very important change that takes place in a larger space of time called the change of ages or Yugas. These changes may not be recorded or accepted by modern science because science as we know it is itself in a kindergarten stage. It has no means nor does human intellect have the capacity to measure or collect proof of such change. Yet ancient histories of both east and west have treasures of knowledge on it. Be it the Ramayana or Mahabharata periods of the east or the Sumeria, Mayan or Atlantis civilisations of the west. Structures such as the pyramids, the stonehenge are living testimonies to those past eras. Proofs that can come within the narrow scope of science may not exist, yet proofs there are.

Just as dawn announces its arrival in the night by the splash of red rays across the dark sky. Just as warm winds during late winters announce the arrival of spring. So also the new age announces its arrival by sending its energies during the transition from the old age. Winter does not change to summer in a single day. Similarly ages do not change over a single year but over 2 or 4 or 6 centuries.

For more understanding of ages you may read :

In the current case the astronomical year of change of age is the much famed year 2012. The transition started a good 200 years back during the 18th century.  Modern science acknowledges that 95% of the science that we know today came in the last 5% of the time we have existed on earth i.e – 250 odd years, approximately the 18th century. And therein lies the proof of the coming new age.

Whereas prior to the 18th century we lived almost in the dark ages; since 18th century on we have progressed at neck break speed going from steam engines to electricity to radio waves to atom to space. The cause for this is the influence of the new energies of the new age dawning on us.

Yet the mixture of the old and the new has lead to downfalls. Old age man instead of using his knowledge of atoms to create and sustain life, used it to make nuclear bombs, similarly other secrets of nature were discovered by man at a huge cost of hurting nature and even mankind, leading to the current stage where we have literally poisoned air, water and earth. During the past change of ages, mankind was afflicted with similar problems that led to the downfall of great civilisations such as Atlantis and Lemuria.  It is  in view of this fact that many people who understand 2012 saw it as a doomsday period. What is required to complete the transition, is a shift in consciousness of mankind.

It is to enable this shift that a new class of children were to be introduced into the human race. These children are generally known as Star seeds. They are all highly sensitive and matured souls, many of them have special abilities such as ESP, clairvoyance etc.; who have graduated from their life on planets like earth yet return voluntarily to assist during such changes.  This is akin to a college student helping out children of 2nd r 3rdgrade.

These children are of 3 classes. The Indigo’s, the Crystals and the Rainbow children.

The Indigos – started populating earth from the 50’s onwards or after the 2nd world war. But they really were acknowledged during the 70’s.
The nature of Indigo’s is Transformation. Their role is similar to throwing a huge rock into a flowing river to disrupt its flow. For this the indigos use peace, rebellion, passivity, non cooperation, sometimes even violence to achieve their ends. The hippy generation of the 60’s and 70’s were all Indigo effect.
Indigos do not like authority. They are non-conformists. Most indigos opt to work in fields of arts, music or healing. They are wise, with great spiritual understanding  of the purpose of life and often do not look their age. Their mission is to disrupt and transform the system by questioning everything.

Crystals – These children started populating the earth from 2000 onwards. Their nature is Pure love. After the Indigos have caused transformations, the Crystals will take over and lead the way with Love and clarity. The Crystals also have prominent signs. They are pure beings having a faultless gaze and they seem to look through into the soul of a person. They are fearless and know exactly what they want to do in life. Unlike the Indigos, the crystals are a source of joy to everyone from their parents to the society.

Rainbows – Are almost divine beings with abilities that one will consider miraculous. These are very few in number and will appear in larger numbers only much later to mature the new age.

I am aware of 3 rainbow children – one in Delhi, one in Holland and the 3rd in Australia. I also have the privilege of knowing atleast 3 Crystals of which one is a 12 year old boy living in Bangalore, who I met just yesterday. The other is a girl who is 10, a westerner living in South India. The 3rdis a girl who was my neighbor and who instantly connected with me even as a 4 month child; we have been best friends.

When I first saw S I was struck by her sense of presence. She seemed to have very pure vibes. Her gaze was what convinced me of her being a Crystal. Also the mention that this child never cries and I witnessed the same during our stay, added to my conviction. I am very friendly with children and would always think of playing with S, but somehow when near her I was awed by her presence, as she seemed more like a wise soul to me then a little child. :)

From my understanding Crystals age at their own pace.  They may or may not react and respond like other kids do. Some Crystals have been known to start speaking late. The understanding given to that by the adepts is that these children are not use to oral communication and therefore don’t feel the need to adapting to it till much later. But they have great empathy and are highly intelligent. It is very difficult to scare such children, for instance with stories of ghosts. They are fearless and have a very defined purpose in life.

The best way to help a Crystal grow is to keep them always in natural, organic environments, give them natural foods. They will always love to be in nature as against crowded places where the energy is dense.

I do not know if this is sufficient info or if there’s anything more you should or would like to know. I am sorry if some of the ideas introduced here may seem odd, but I guessed if you are blessed enough with a child such as S, this info will resonate with you too. If you check up Crystal children online just keep a sense of discretion, as there are many people out there who have put up a lot of info aiming at sensationalism. Doreen Virtue is one reliable source of info as she is an advanced Indigo herself and speaks indepth about such children coming into the new age.

Love and Light,

" Parmartha Ishtarth Moksha Pradanam.."

Some years back Swami called a devotee who was to visit Arunachala and asked him to carry some vibhuti which he was to give to a certain person who would himself find him to receive the sacred prasad.  He added a note of caution to the devotee saying "Do not give this vibhuti to anyone but that devotee. He is waiting for this."

Obeying Swami's command this devotee left for Arunachala wondering how that person will know of his coming.

Once in Arunachala, this devotee wondered what he should do next. He was very fond of watching cricket and was keen on going to his room to follow a match that was currently in progress. As he was waiting, he noticed a young ascetic approach him.

The ascetic looked at him and said, "Are you not the one through whom Bhagwan has send vibhuti? My Master is eagerly awaiting your arrival. Will you please come with me so I can take you to him immediately."

In his eagerness to watch cricket, the devotee from parthi told the ascetic "Look here, why don't I give you the vibhuti, please carry it to your Master as I have other matters to attend to."

The ascetic face registered surprise and awe. He said "Do you think I am capable of carrying or even touching this vibhuti send by Bhagawan. Do you realize how potent it is. Blessed are you for it is purely His grace that His devotees can partake of this most sacred grace." Hearing this the devotee from parthi was reminded of Swamis command to give the vibhuti to the recipient directly.

With that the ascetic led the way leading the parthi devotee to a cave like area in the outskirts of Arunachala. At once the disciples ran within to inform their Master of this devotees arrival. The Master who never ventured out asked his disciples to carry him out. There he greeted this devotee and reverentially accepted the divine gift send by Bhagawan.

This devotee states that it took the Master a good 40 mins to be able to consume that pinchful of vibhuti. As He finished consuming it, this devotee witnessed in awe as the Master sat down in a trance and His life breath left him in front of those gathered there, making a cracking sound from the top of his skull, giving him the final grace of Liberation.

This story was narrated by this devotee himself.

I hope the next time we sing "Paramam pavitram.." we will realize the privilege we have as devotees of the Poornaavataar, on whom he has graced His special grace of the Vibhuti.

'You will bring in the Golden Age' : A Divine revelation on the Avataars last Birthday!



A most profound conversation took place a few years back between Swami and a young devotee. 

The devotee, an ace singer, had put in a lot of effort to create a unique sound to be played when Swami would ride the Golden chariot for the last time on His last birthday celebration of His human form, in the year 2010.

Swami acknowledging the young devotees efforts, teased him - "Ae.. you think you planned and created those sounds of the conch shells and the celestial bells?"

With a smile He revealed "Those sounds were planned 10,000 years ago!"

Stunned, the young devotee asked "Swami what was so special about this that it had to be planned 10,000 years ago?"

Swami replied "It was planned 10,000 years ago because at this point in time this sound was to be played, heralding the end of the Kali Yuga and the beginning of the Satya Yuga!"

(This sound was played on 23rd November, 2010 approximately 11 am.)

Unable to come to terms with this stunning revelation, the boy asked "Swami, is the Golden age here?  But if that is the case, why is there still negativity, why poverty, why anger and all the ailments in our failing society."

Swami smiled pleased at the question and looked up. There was a fan on the ceiling. He said " Do you see this fan?"

Devotee  Yes Swami"

Swami "It is a five speed fan. Suppose it is rotating at full speed at the 5th level, what if you press the stop button?"

Devotee: "Swami the motors will stop further rotation, though the fan blades will still rotate at great speed till the fan comes to a halt in time."

Swami "Yes! I have now pressed the stop button for the Kali Age. But the blades continue to rotate at a very very high speed. But I have also pressed the One speed button for the Golden Age. Sloowwlly the fan of the Golden age is beginning to rotate."

The devotee let this information sink in. He then asked " Swami, then when will the fan of the Golden age override the fan of the Kali yuga?"

Swami smiled at this question and made a very profound revelation "That is up to you all My children!"

" Upto us?… How Swami?" said the surprised devotee.

Swami revealed " Every bit of negativity done in thought, word or deed from here on, will power up Kali Yuga. The fan of Kali Yuga will continue to rotate.  Every bit of positivity done in thought, word, deed power up the Golden age fan. So now its unto you all."

If these words of the Avataar are now neglected, it will be most unfortunate for this earth and humanity. The Golden Age is bound to come, the only question is, will this generation take the onus upon itself to bring about the change or delay the inevitable by giving away this rare opportunity to another generation.

Swami had declared many years ago "To whom much is given, much will be expected." We, who have the privilege of calling ourselves His devotees, must lead the way for humanity, from this moment on by living the life as taught by Him. 
It is for this reason that Swami shared with us His light saying " My life is My message." 
Having filled us with His light, He then declared " Your lives will be My message."

Swami declared to the young devotee "As Krishna I had given the promise in the Bhagawad Geeta, that if you dedicate, you surrender your lives to Me, I will take charge of every aspect of your lives and fulfill your every need. As the Sathya Sai avatar I make a further declaration. If you dedicate your lives in loving Me and serving Me, I will not only fulfill My promise as Krishna of Yogakshema, but I will take you across the ocean of Samsara, to rest in the lap of Divinity forever."

Do you doubt yourself, do you doubt your ability to bring this mission to its inevitable success?

The Lord had once revealed to His students the following secret. "To even chant the name of Sai, you would have to take a hundred thousand births.  

"Do you know who you all are? None of you know what you have done to be here. None of you know the intense sadhana you have done over 1000's of years in anticipation of this opportunity of being close to the Avataar.  Many of you have been Yogi's and Rishi's some meditating over a stretch of 300 years at a time. 

"I have not forgotten all your accumulated sadhana, your accumulated karma which has reached its pinnacle now, leading you to take birth at the same time as the Parabrahma Swaroopa."

In this way Swami has revealed to us the simple fact that not only has He graced us to be with Him but that He deems us worthy of being those torchbearers who will take this light forward. Swami has gone nowhere. He is. He has only stepped back to help us fulfill our mission of making our lives His message. Of being His lighthouses.

The Golden Age begins Now… It begins with you...
