Universal Religion

This book is a Vedantic Commentary on ‘Jesus of Aquarius’ channeled by Levi Dowling at the start of the 20th century. Jesus spent 12 years in India and away from Jerusalem from the ages of 12 to 24 years. He learned Vedanta from Hindus and Buddhism from Masters of the East.Universal ReligionJesus’ esoteric insight of spirituality was not understood by the Jews of Jerusalem (and is still not interpreted correctly by the West). He therefore was committed to the Cross by the age of 28. Aquarian Gospel became the catalyst for my commentary in ‘Universal Religion’.

Theosophical Masters have promised a spiritual awakening. It is possible now that we have transcended the Piscean Age (Kali yuga) and have been entering the Aquarian Age (Satya-yuga) for the last 200 years.

This book is available at Createspace,  Amazon.comAmazon.ca, and at VolumesDirect

    The Mahabharat is the Story of Every Human Being
    The story begins with a falsified idea about who I am. It is the the grand misconception of who “I am!” About who suffers; who grows in knowledge and who falls from lack of wisdom. Humans struggle endlessly in their efforts to align in tuned with one’s life-purpse: but everyone around guages life and its purpose. Suffused with such blindness, a description of “Light” is impossible when the Inner Light is dimmed. Correspondingly, unless one has experienced life, someone telling you about life fails to inspire one hypnotised through a life lived in fear and limited existence of “I-Me-Mine!”
    There are many characters and players in the Story of Mahabharat. It is an
    Itihasa: a story of every human being, not in terms of history, though there is a historic element to this Epic of Mahabharat. It is about the meaning of our life.
    Only if it is your story, it can be a process of growth for you and I.
    The illusive ‘I am’ is experienced in the waking and dream states whereas the serene ‘I am’ is experienced in deep sleep state (Māṇḍūkya Upaniṣad). That is who “I AM” and life is about discovering who “I am!”

      Yoga in the West:
      The most common yoga group, especially in the West, was introduced by Swami Vishnudevaanada in the 1960s as Hatha Yoga. Over a million people took to the practice that uses postures, both seated and standing, for physical body control.
      There are many religious aspects and sects in yoga but the the famous one is Ashtanga Yoga which was introduced by a prehistoric Yogacharya (teacher) Patañjali (150-200 BC) in India.
      When comparing and contrasting Yoga in eastern countries, with the west: they have ‘just started’ the practice as a widely acknowledged exercise and not as a spiritual practice, until recently.
      Yoga was introduced into the West by an Indian sage Swami Vivekanada, who demonstrated Yoga postures at a World Fair in Chicago in the 1890s.
      Swami Vivekananda also translated Yogic texts from Sanskrit into the English language. During his visit to the USA (Chicago) in 1893, he created a lasting impression of Yogic philosophies (Raja Yoga) in the minds of Western audience and also founded Yoga centres for training.
      This generated much interest and laid the grounds for the welcoming of many other Yogis and Swamis from India, in the years that followed.
      Introducing Ashtanga Yoga in West emloys a specific sequence of demanding and challenging lifestyle changes coupled with learning hatha yoga asanas. Hatha and Ashtanga are designed for groups with two different temperaments.

        Desire for life in Heaven or Hell
        Our desire to live in this world drives our life.
        And we all seek heaven on earth. But what happens after we die? Where do we go? Many of us today don’t believe in the concept of heaven and hell.
        So did the early Hindus! To them heaven was not a preferred destination after death. They preferred a life of dharma, also called divine law; a duty-filled custom observances based on principles of individual and cosmic existence.
        It was and still is about finding happiness within ourself based on religious and moral laws that govern an individual’s conduct.
        These early Hindus never believed in heaven, and never prayed to attain a permanent place there. The earliest concept of afterlife, say Vedic scholars, was that the dead reunite with Mother Nature and live in some other form on this earth with rocks and stones and trees.
        Going back to the early Vedic hymns, invocation made to the fire god, was and even today is a prayer to assimilate the dead into and with the natural world:
        The concept of heaven and hell evolved at a later stage when we find such amendments in the Veda as “Go thou to the heaven or to the earth, according to thy merit…”

          Involuntary Compulsive Actions & Responsible Voluntary Actions:
          Knowledge-based-actions are voluntary and avoidable by choice or involuntarily compulsive because of Ignorance. Where Knowledge based actions are one’s lifestyle, they are based on a self-imposed moral judgement. They come from much needed willed preference, based upon rational reflection as a forethought, before actions manifest as expressions of goodness.
          Many ask if involuntary actions triggered by compulsions and Ignorance are guaged as caustic and immoral in society.The answer to this dilemma is that humankind is moral and not a degenerated creation; therefore whether Ignorant or Learned, the Law of Action and Reaction applies to both.

      Each one of us has to incarnate their own Christ.
      Ephesians 4:7-10 “But to each one of us grace has been given as [Jesus] Christ apportioned it. ‘When he [a seeker of spirituality] ascended on high [upwards from the lower three chakras of lust/desire-greed-anger], he led [these] captives [of a changed lifestyle] in his train and gave gifts [freedon from covetousness, pride, jealousy] to men.’
      Buddha Gautama Shakyamuni, Rama and Krishna were also great Masters like Jesus. They all came and taught us the wisdom related with our awakening Inner Buddha [peace] and the enlightenment of the mind.
      Each serious seeker has his or her own individual particular Buddha. Since the forces that are outside in the cosmos, are also inside of us. That is why the human being is called the micro-cosmos of the macro-cosmos.

      Defining Enlightenment:
      Enlightenment is exorcizing our builtin self-centered devils of covetousness, pride, jealousy, and arrogance – the ego! Even this is not posible until there is a change in lifestyle, free from lust/want, greed, anger and covetousness.
      “Hypocrisy, pride, self-conceit, wrath, arrogance and ignorance belong, O Arjuna, to him who is born to the heritage of the demons.” States the Gita, XVI. 4
      Before ensuring there is a change in lifestyle, we need to be assured that it is only by the grace of God that we can get that One to be watchful over us, every moment of everyday. How does one earn God’s grace?
      By becoming the Lord’s devotee.
      Kṛiṣhṇa says the demoniac qualities will continue to delude us in bondage with no signs of liberation.
      Therefore the Gita , says: “Out of compassion I bestow knowledge on My devotee. I give it out of compassion, not because he deserves it.”
      Who is His devotee?
      It is he or she, whose heart all the time cries, “Lord, what am I going to do? I cannot get rid of my prideful Ego!”
      Perhaps, one day by some miraculous grace someone, somebody will come into our life, who will switch on the enlightenment button.
      Until then all we can do is to keep praying – ardently, enthusiastically devoting to Krishna and becoming ‘trans-abled!’

      Who are our Master Angels?
      There are many Self-realized archangels (mentioned also in the Book of Enoch) who are some of the many Masters for the seekers in humanity. They become channels of energy of the cosmos, and incarnate on the Earth to express their wisdom, and help with their Force all seekers stuck in their spiritual path.
      But that force, that energy that they channel, is also inside of everybody. We have them in potentiality, and only if we work with them and put them in activity, is how we become Self-realized and become like them.

      Inter-religious Issues:
      When dealing with inter-religious issues, we desperately hold on to strong desires to impose on others, our beliefs. It takes birth through covetousness, and causing sorrow in ‘self’ and on others, instead of culturing dispassion through non-interference!
      Those who are in tune with life’s purpose are comfortable with in a lifestyle that naturally unfolds with knowledge and wisdom.
      To start with, Life has to be freed from obsessions about other faiths.
      Because Human life is not bound up with a creed or a book, a prophet or a founder, it is easier to be in a persistent search for truth on the basis of a continuously renewed personal experience: in a continuous evolution through transformation, transmutation and metamorphosis.
      That means, living and moving with the movement of life itself.
      To ensure this happens, independence and freedom of the mind, gives life, confidence in its own powers.
      The Truth suggested in the Vedas was and is developed in the Upanishads. They affirm there is a central reality, who is all that is, and beyond all that is.

      Unrighteousness on the Rise & Humanity is experiencing it Today:
      Bhagavad Gita Chapter 4 Verses 7-8 states about Inculcating Fear and Greed on humanity:
      “Whenever there is decay of righteousness, O Bharata,
      And there is exaltation of unrighteousness, then I Myself come forth ;
      For the protection of the good, for the destruction of evil-doers,
      For the sake of firmly establishing righteousness, I am born from age to age.”
      Swami Vivekananda’s translation of these solkas reverberate the
      same message:
      “Whenever virtue subsides and wickedness prevails, I manifest Myself. To establish virtue, to destroy evil, to save the good I come from Yuga (age) to Yuga.” en. wikisource.org

      Tolerance the Secret of Unity in Diversity:
      Tolerance amongst Eastern Religions (Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism and Shintoism) also known as “Paganism” as opposed to Abrahamic Religions ((Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) is the homage which a finite mind pays to the inexhaustibility of the Infinite.
      Hinduism is not a religion. It is more about a practical ‘cultural way of life’ than a thoughtform of esoteric philosophy. It embraces all: the theist and the atheist, the cynic and the disbeliever as long as they accept the structure and ‘cultural way of life.’
      Nobody insists upon a ‘religious’ orthodoxy but it is emphatic about a secular and principled outlook of life, seeking ONLY the Truth.
      Eastern Faiths make an effort within the group of diversity at understanding and collaboration.
      They acknowledge the diversity in humankind’s approach to realization of the one Supreme Reality that is both immanent and emmanent in One and All.
      Therefore, every person’s search and vision of Truth is true.

    8. Sneh Chakraburtty says:

      Power of the Sacred Flame of Human Spirit:
      All Religious Faiths should represent the Human Spirit – because a Sacred Flame survives Time, Space, and truly displays astonishing strength to endure the viciously opinionated political and iniquitous governance of today.
      Despite repeated horrific apocalyptic happenings over past Moments in Time, from the beginning of recorded history, Truth has borne witness to the Sacred Flame of the Human Spirit.
      It must remain burning perpetually; even while our experiential worlds collapse and kingdoms tumble into ruins.
      The Sacred Flame alone can give Civilization a soul: and a standard to live by.
      The planet today is in a turmoil.
      Those with a burning Sacred Flame, realize not only that all roads lead to the one Infinity of Fairness and Goodness for All, but that each Faith must choose that road.
      It starts from the ‘now’ with the Human Spirit only to find itself again as the Sacred Flame.
      We all need to review this moment of ‘setting out’ for a better tomorrow for Humanity.

    Mind-body Wellness through Yoga
    Shakti is ‘sabda brahman’ or AUM with ten sound-manifestations or antardhvani beginning as a ‘hum’ in the base spinal centre.
    Through Knowledge, a seeker on a Spiritual Path learns about all bodily envelopments (shariras) which must be pierced through meditation.
    When humankind reaches the causal brain, the not as yet enlightened personality or chitta (mind-intellect-ego-memories) awaits a deeper delving towards Awareness.
    Only an enlightened chitta reaches Awareness – and transformation begins.
    The atom-transformation of meditating atoms of the body, is precise: afferent through parasympathetic (ida) and efferent through sympathertic (pingala).
    When is chanelled through two important autonomic nervous systems: parasympathetic and sympathetic, the inner heart (thalamus) ensures change happens.
    The sympathetic ensures the master glands (pituitary complex) makes physical changes in the human body.
    Ablity to receive and succeed on the path to immortaity leads to the erasure of the past in the chitta.

    Humanity Wellness:
    Mind-body wellness or Yoga has evolved for over 5000 years, with plunges and ascensions in practices of Yoga.
    High on the mountains, in sacred caves, many monks have been active: for thousands of years. Their austere existence is for seeking God in the Home of Silence which is broken only by the whisper of the wind.
    Their actions are a prayerful appeal for transmuting of humanity’s denser feelings, iniquitous actions, and conduct against all creature and living things.
    They seek a humanity of a higher vibrational frequency.
    The higher the energy of ascension, the better will become the beings on the ground.
    It would make the world a better place to live in.
    A higher vibrational frequency is today an imperative need and a want, to elevate to the level of Consciousness.
    Crowds doing Yoga is asking for Crowd Wellness and Humanity Healing by all who transiently become Divine Humans while doing Crowd Yoga.
