In the land of Sadhus, Swamis and Sannyasis

I'm visiting India...Spirituality is the greatest treasure of Indian culture, but in many cases it has gone ashtray into dogmatic fate, and more filth is creeping in - although mixing with Western materialism is not only a negative thing. I'm not interested of roaming around in tourist places including ashrams and monasteries. I have seen enough in previous years, while this is my 15 th trip to India. Nowadays I purely come to have spiritual satsanga with our great sannyasis and fellow spiritul soldiers. 

Spirituality is a not much theories and habits, it is rather practical experimenting and experiencing true love and its opposite states - arising from past karma, or own misbehavior - to be conquered. I love it...nowhere else you can have such internal struggles finally always ending up into deep internal peace and joy to be, to live, to do. And long touching meditations, listening spiritual stories, attending programs with infinite sea of people. I have got many times in past chance to read New Year's message in my mother tongue to about 10 000 people. Let's see if it is going to happen again.

I heard here from one sannyasi what Sarkar had said about Jesus Christ; One yogamonk came near Maria's (mother of Jesus) place. Maria fall in love to him and she became pregnant. The Guru of that yogamonk ordered Him back to Himalayas, as the monk did mistake by getting engaged with women. Maria got married with another man Josef and they got the child Jesus. When Jesus was ab 13 he went to visit his father to Himalayas and stayed there studying meditation practices. Later when he came back and the people were planning to put him to the cross, he asked mentally his Guru, what to do. The guru said: Just use your powers and let them crusify you, but get out of your body before and take a new body. Jesus asked: what about the blood which suppose to come? The Guru answered: You know how to do that, use your powers. So Jesus did accrdingly so he didn't actually die on the cross. (Swami Rama in his book Living with the Himalayan Masters tells about how yogis could voluntarily cast of their body and even enter into another body if it was available, as well they could decide how long to lived).

Sarkar to Dasarath: Take a peep into the immediate past life of this soul and see who he was or what was he then. Dasharathji: he was a businessman from Kiul. Sarkar; now look into his future life and tell us into whose womb will he be reborn. Dasharathji: his next birth will be in the body of a black dog.

Hearing this Sarkar said with disgust: Tsk tsk. How shameful indeed. To think this man came from a respectable and wealthy family. Moreover, he had the rare and golden opportunity for a human birth. But now he has lost it. All through his life he was devoured by greed... Let us suppose that by the will of God, this dog is born again... and is able to retain the memories of his past life. In this case, due to hunger he would certainly go back to his previous home in order to eat something...his own wealth and fortune. But how will his own family members, sons, daughters, wife react when they see him entering the house? They will drive him away with a stick. Now how many years will he have to spend in animal life before he can once more get a human birth? Likewise today, most people are squandering away their precious human life.

It is immensely difficult to gain a human birth...But out of ignorance one ruins this precious life through own misdeeds. Then one is caught in an endless cycle of births in lower... degraded forms of life...After countless such births one once again attains this rare human birth. That is why I say over and over again, every human being must consider his life as precious. With this in mind one should make full and proper utilization of one’s life... in performing good deeds. One must fulfill all one’s worldly duties and responsibilities and at the same time one must be very clear about one’s ultimate goal in life.

Sarkar said ab Sadhus; Not only do human beings have physical needs, they have more subtle ones as well. Those who have no desire for any of the physical necessities sometimes leave their homes and embrace the life of a monk... What sort of desire prompted Mahaprabhu Caetanya to accept the life of a sannyasi? What prompted Buddha to relinquish his beautiful kingdom? They all had no further physical desires. There was no further need for káma and artha in their lives. But why did they choose to completely give up their worldly lives? The reason is that there was a very deep desire in the back of their minds. Having just entered that higher stratum, they are unable to understand the subtler expressions of life. This leads to a longing for the spiritual.

Some Indian sadhus, swamis, sannyasis; In the mid 1800’s, Mahavatar Babaji created Kriya yoga, a discipline involving purification through breath control techniques for spiritual evolution. In 1963 a young bramachari from Assam followed ray of light - the call of Mahavatar Babaji. For the next twenty years under all kind of weather – the young bramachari, known as Bengali Baba or Hariakhan Baba, sat under a rock next to Babaji’s cave in Tibet.

Swami Rama, also called Bhole Baba and Rama Dandi – was a disciple of Bengali Baba. Swami Rama founded the Himalayan International Institute of Yoga Science and Philosophy with centers throughout the world. He was initiated in early childhood and studied with many adepts including with his grandmaster Mahavatar Baba. 
Swami Rama received his higher education at Bangalore, Varanasi, and Oxford University, England. At the young age of 24 years he became Shankaracharya of Karvirpitham, the highest spiritual position in India. He disposed useless formalities and rituals and encouraged the instruction of women in meditation. He renounced the prestige in 1952 and returned to Himalayas for intensified 11-month meditation session. Then he was determined to serve humanity by bringing the teachings of the East to the West. He was teaching Eastern philosophy at many Western universities, and assisted parapsychological research in Moscow. He then returned to India, where he established a clinic and ashram in Rishikesh. Later he went to Japan, where he established a major spiritual center. He came to the US in 1969 at the request of his master.

Swami Rama dedicated his life towards the unification of science and spirituality. Swamiji presented his case to science and showed how, by controlling the mind, one can control one’s bodily functions, including heart and lungs. Under laboratory conditions he stopped his heart for 17 seconds, produced a ten degree difference in temperature and specific brain wave patterns on demand. He was a frequent figure on national television shows such as “Good Morning America” and the “Phil Donahue Show.” Through his work with the Menninger Foundation he helped to pioneer the use of biofeedback as a therapeutic modality, to lay the foundation for stress management and holistic health programs, and to generate interest to experience consciousness. Swami Rama died in 1995. He is author of many books.

This was one of the tests in Menninger Foundation in1969; Swami concentrated in silencing the conscious mind and bringing forward the subconscious mind. When he did that we observed theta waves in significant amounts in his brain-wave pattern. When asked him afterward what that state was like, he said all of the things that other people wanted him to do, all of the things he should have done, but didn’t do, came up and began screaming at him. 'It is very noisy and very unpleasant. Usually I keep that turned off, but it is useful to look in there once in a while to see what is there', he said. Beyond Biofeedback 1977. And World Book Science Year Annual 1974. And Time Life Nature Science Annual 1973. And Britannica Yearbook of Science and the Future 1973. More Probe Magazine 1973. And Swami Rama the Himalayan Master;
Devraha Baba lived for over 250 years, before entering samadhi in 1989. Rare video footage for a Russian television channel around 1987-1989;

He was a sadhu who preached harmony between religious communities.[4]. Swami Rama ab Devraha Baba; I have heard that first president of India Prashad say that from his own experience Devraha Baba is more than 150 years old. He said that in his childhood his father took him to this baba, who was then very old man. At the time he gave this statement Dr Prashad was himself seventy years of age.

He doesn't allow anyone to touch him, but gives sometimes discourses on divine love. I tried to find out how he lived to be so aged. I discovered that he practices certain aspects of yoga regularly and that he eats only fruits and vegetables. During my conversation with Baba he said; “Happiness is the greatest wealth of all. Punctuality is essential. Practicing advanced methods of breathing is equally important. The technique of agelessness is the technique of pranayama."
Kashmir bandit told to Swami Rama about Jesus Christ (from manuscript written in Tibetan and translated by Russian; The unknown life of Jesus Christ;;  Jesus' carb was original Kashmir carb, his hair style was Kashmiri and the miracles that he performed are well known yogic miracles. Swami Rama tells; Garwali Sadhu was comparing Bhagavat Gita and the teachings of Bible and Sermon on the Mount and The Book of Revelations to yoga system of Patanjali. ........

Sadguru; How spiritual experiences cultivate in different ways;

Acharya Shree Yogeesh; True Master Among Fake Spiritual/Enlightened Swamis & Gurus;

And fake Guru Nityananda?;
In our Proutist mission we have sannyasis all over the world. We live life of monks and nuns, but we don't go to Himalayas for self-realization, but serve humanity in practical daily life. We might or might not have - depending on individuals - extraordinary powers and abilities, but we avoid using them for show. They are the fastest way for downfall, becoming egoistic and making one even sick.
