Talks and Lectures on the System of Sri Ramchandra's Rajayoga

Human Destiny in Sri Ramchandra's New Darshana

(The article is one of the unpublished papers of Dr. K. C. Varadachari and did not carry any Title. Taking consideration the purport of the article the topic has been named. A few changes and incorporations from the writings of Rev. Babuji, had to be made in the paper and this was done by me. It is hoped that readers will get the spirit behind the system and everyone responds according to the need of times. - K. C. Narayana).

"We are all brethren connected intellectually, morally and spiritually - the main goal of human life. This and that have gone now. There remains the purity alone in all His work and environment which weaves the spiritual destiny of the persons with the Ultimate" Message of Rev. Babuji Maharaj on 30.1.1982. The spirit of this call delivered just about an year before the Master shed His mortal coil was well anticipated by Dr. K. C. V. in the article that follows.

Too easily the old habits and practices creep in and pollute the pure spiritual atmosphere sought to be perpetuated by Master in his infinite zeal to better humanity. Amazingly great rationalizations are given for habits and actions which show human weakness rather his awareness of Master. Pure devotion to Master gets unfortunately confused with slavery and slavish practices of the past: despite clear warnings by the Master in person as also in his works. Human nature does not seem to want Master and masterliness but continue as Brute and seek Slavery. Divinisation of humanity perhaps is the goal of Nature and Man seems to be totally unprepared for, nay unwilling for it. (The readers may note here the concept of Living Masters and the slavish and abject submission towards them not for Freedom but for relief of various kinds. Their number which is swelling by the day, no wonder, is just a manifestation of the old habits of Gurudom. K.C.N.)

The need for another Darshana or system of spirituality can be justified only if we accept the goal of Divinisation of Man. If this system is to be one more method of attaining "liberation" - then it is just one more. But the call of the Master is not to liberate a few souls, who come to his fold.

The cry of Nature to make Man live at peace with his fellow beings and other species has been there for over few millennia. But the concept of brotherhood and peaceful co-existence has been only voiced from all floors and rarely do we find it practiced.

Liberty, Equality and Fraternity are the three basic spiritual values aspiring to become secular. In the process we find the deep rooted "selfishness" in Man, the sworn enemy of all spiritual values using these three concepts for its own purposes, resulting in all round hypocrisy. While every leader, political or spiritual voices these values, they neither believe in them nor really want them to find any place in our life. The vocal transmission given to these values have sufficiently grossened them and solidified them - that we finally find these today as "idols" used to deceive the mankind. Poor souls are not aware that Nature has its own design to meet the situation!

The values of Liberty and Equality are more spiritual and perhaps need more time to find expression in mundane matters; life being what it is, variance and difference are in built. Except for the feature all came from the Primordial one, equality is hard to accept. Liberty or Freedom is bound by responsibilities. But Fraternity has no restraints. It can be expressed by one and all. It is possible to behave in a brotherly way with all. Yet we have failed God for so many years, with our properties, nations, races, sexes and other distinctions. NATURE DEMANDS THAT UNIVERSAL BROTHERHOOD BECOMES A FACT BEFORE IT TAKES UP THE WORK OF DIVINISATION OF MAN. (Capitals not in original). The thought of brotherhood, which was one of essential sharing in the tribal cultures to the concept of tolerance of others views in the modern world is by itself an interesting study in the evolution of Man. But his destiny is far beyond; almost a journey to the Infinite. The Divine Will to find expression of its Glory in Nature has but found so far little success. Human being with its meal of "selfishness" has been obstructing the expression of Divinity in him and so of nature. NATURE IS JUST IMPATIENT AND THE DIVINE PERSONALITY (REV. BABUJI - editor) IS EQUALLY INTERESTED TO EXPEDITE THE DIVINISATION OF MAN - THE HOPE OF GOD - WHO CREATED him IN HIS IMAGE - meaning thereby that he is granted the original thought - the kingly aspect in Man and Nature.

The New Darshana is for those who participate in the Divine Work of Divinising Man - rather than those who seek individual transformation. The assurance of Master that He is taking care of every abhyasi and that every abhyasi should spread the message means that every one should actively participate in bringing about simplicity, purity and fraternal feeling in all, not worrying about his own realization. It is not therefore meant that one should not have the craving. It is a must, it is the promise and it is the beginning. But that is not the work of the Master nor is it His mission.

Those saints who seek individual salvation only are comparable to those who are selected to play a cricket match, seeing the strong opponent side (evils in life) walk back to the Manager praying to Him to allow them sit in the pavillion due to their inadequate capacities, or more appropriately to Uttara Kumara who having started for the battle with Kauravas seeing their might wanted to flee. The uniform worn by him (the abhyas of Ten Commandments etc.,), the refuge he has in Brhannala (the veiled Master) not withstanding he wanted to flee (so are those who seek liberation from life and who do not want to better the lot of man.). The Ten Commandments, the practice of meditation are but uniforms that the sadhaka has to wear. No doubt they are to be pure and perfectly ironed. But that is only a preparation. The individual elevation in consciousness is but a step in the greater task of Divinisation of Man. If every abhyasi really believes in the Master, he has the onerous responsibility of shedding through his actions and behaviour the Radiance of the Divine Personality deeply imbedded in him. He should be conscious of the fact that he is walking temple, in as much as Master is present in his heart.
