WITHERING AWAY OF CONGRESS PARTY
Is ours an ideal democracy!! Hardly so, it is far from being an ideal democracy; where there should be  two equal opponents, like Conservative and Labour party in Britain; like Republican and Democratic party in USA. As for India, for the two major parties here i.e. Congress and BJP there has never been a state of relative equilibrium. There was a time when Congress was all powerful for a long time, BJP had not come into existence then. BJP came into existence and gradually spread its wings and the status now of present election result on 23 May 2019 is that BJP alone bagged 303 seats and 353 seats along with its NDA Alliance. Congress on the other hand could muster only 52 seats; along with UPA, Congress got 91. Other parties won 98 seats. What to talk of equality, Congress party could not win even 55 seats which is the requisite 10 % to become the official opposition. read more...read more...
FEAR OF WORLD WAR III
What is happening between USA and Iran is not a World war but it may develop into a major war and may be later into a World war. What we must always remember is that after the end of second World war in 1945, there have been at least three regional wars every ten years; mostly Asian and African countries have been involved whereas USA and Russia have made lots of profit by selling arms and ammunition.  read more...read more...

ETERNAL INDIA 4

In Yogis, Destiny and the Wheel of Time I referred to the incident of Chandi Babu and my Guruji when Guruji told him (in 1948 I wrote but am told that it was in 1952) that he (Guruji), Chandi Babu and his wife will leave this world within a space of six months in one year.

Chandi Babu’s wife suffered from cancer and I had to give him a prediction about his wife in 1978 when he did not expect it. In the first quarter of 1980 his wife died thirty eight or forty two years after the prophecy; Guruji took his samadhi in June 1980 and Chandibabu died about four months later---all in 1980.

That is the vision of a mahatma. India is great, eternal because we have such mahatmas all over the country.

But if Madhuri Dixit who is said to have staged a great come back at the age of 42 is the main attraction, there is no interest or quest to seek true mahatmas.

We do not publicise these facts of our lives in India as Vaishnavas do not speak of siddhis but of surrender to the Lord while performing their worldly duties. And it is strictly applied to us worshippers of Lord Krishna who speaks of avyabhicharini bhakti in the Gita (devotion without aberrations---actually avyabhicharini refers to sexual misconduct)

Therefore, we keep to ourselves such experiences and we die with them without these experiences being disclosed fully in all cases. Manu gurus forbid their disciples of talking about miracles which they witness.

In 1963
In 1963, while I was walking with Guruji, he told me that in old age I will have serious trouble with my legs. In 2000, thirty seven years later, I was nearly crippled and no doctor in Delhi or Lucknow gave me even one percent chance of recovery. They said that I would never be able to walk ever again in my life.

Smt.Bijoya Chakrabarty, the Water Resources minister (BJP leader from Assam) in the cabinet of Atal Bihar Vajpayee had got me examined by big doctors. I had given her a prediction about her victory from Assam and becoming a minister. She came to meet me again in 2006 and when she saw me walking without even a walker, she stared at me with disbelief and describes it all now as the eighth wonder of the world ! No leading doctor had given me one percent change of recovery she keeps saying now. But she had not told me of the gloomy diagnosis of doctors then.

I was one of those fantastic cases of a patient who was given no medicine. I recovered through prayers only. I do not quote such personal examples but here I have to since I emphasise that one must do it, offer prayers, oneself. I did my Guru Mantra, Vishnu Sahastranama, Narayana Kavacham, lying on bed, violating all Vaishanava rules of shuchi or cleanliess. I recovered partly and can walk without a stick, climb stairs but cannot walk now for five miles at a stretch.

In 1957, I had gone trekking to Rohtang Pass in a continuous walk of many hours, covering 36 miles at a stretch !

My students who have seen my condition in 2000 and see me now have started believing in Vishnu Sahastranama and Narayana Kavacham and some of them do it now, having learnt the recitation of these with me.

Again 1963 --a young man
Similarly, Guruji had told me in 1963, about a young man of twenty one years that he was born with a rogi shareera (sickly body) but that would not affect his longevity! By 2007 that young man now sixty five years old has been hospitalised at least fifteen times, excluding the period when he had to remain to confined to his bed at home which may be more than twenty times! Nearly thirty five such attacks of sickness, illness accident etc. in a period of forty years is what I am witness to.

In the Yogis book I did not confine myself to my Guruji only but I wrote about other saints to show how this great spiritual current flows all over India. I revealed only twenty percent of what I have been a first hand witness to

It is my luck that I met such great mahatmas. They have never said that karma phala or results of karma can be liquidated so easily. One has to reconcile to fate cheerfully.

This is what an astrologer can see and prepare people to face life with its enigmas of bliss and pain, that duality of joy and torture which is what human life is.

If an astrologer claims that he can wipe it out, what he is doing is to talk against our own scriptures, the great preachings of mahatmas, and great examples like that of Rama Krishna Paramhamsa or Raman Maharshi.

I know many more such examples and in not a single case of those suffering mahatmas was there any lack of the divine ecstacy which they enjoyed and gave to their disciples experiences of ecstacies in ample measure. They had risen above their body consciousness, that transcendental stage which is a fiction to the stupid western scientist because in their countries they can never see such examples.

Where there is spiritual barenness, atheism needs no fertilizer to grow enormously. It is what I found in my interactions with westerners. Scratch them and comes out like a dangerous devil the somnolent, disbelieving , questioning, challenging atheist in them. They talk of the Bible and do not remember that Christ talked of men of faith and derided “Ye, men of little faith”!
