Merry Christmas and all the blessings ,
Today we are not going to have a very long puja, but there are certain things which we have to understand from the life of Christ. Christ was born in a very poor conditions, just to show that spirituality can live in any circumstances and under any problems. And He had to face so much opposition from His own clan. He was born in a Jew family and that time the Jews would not accept Him. But they did not kill Him, that’s the main point, we should understand. They did not kill Him. Under no law a multitude can kill. Is the judge, who was a Roman judge from the Roman Empire who actually ordered His death.
It is very difficult to follow His life because He was absolutely a Divine personality, absolutely. And that’s why He – whatever rules and regulations He has passed for the Christians are really very difficult to follow, very difficult. I don’t think very few people are even able to follow His life. It’s very difficult because He said that if you commit any adultery with your eyes, you better take out. You cut your hand if you do any crime with it. For Him, the crime was also a very subtle thing. Turn your left cheek if somebody slaps you on the right cheek. To follow this kind of a difficult, very, very difficult thing was impossible. And also He said that you have to do it, not others.
He lived for such a short time. He visited India and stayed here. I’ve read a book about it and I was surprised that in the Puranas, is written very clearly in Sanskrit language, which perhaps the writer didn’t understand, and where Shalivanha, My forefathers, he met Him, and he said to Him that what is Your name? He said, “My name is Issa Massih”, and I have come to this country because My country is full of melechas. Melecha means Mal ich, those have only tendencies toward collecting filth. So he said, “But what are you doing here? You go back to your own country and teach them the “Nirmala Param Tatwam.” It’s very surprisingly; he used these words so clearly.
So the whole thing was printed in Sanskrit. Perhaps the writer never understood what was in Sanskrit language. And then he said, “It is – You can only go and reform them and You can clear them.” But look at it, He tried to do the good and people crucified him.
If you see the Christian religion now, you don’t know what to say about it. They have been always opposing Sahaja Yoga and also they have never tried to understand that Christ has said that I will send you the Holy Ghost. Also, some Sahaja Yogis who are supposed to be coming from Christian conditionings stick to that. Now no more. There is no Christ. Of course, we accept that it was very important for Him to come on this Earth and to help us out. The steps on which you are, you have to leave that step to go out to the higher stage. That doesn’t mean you should not worship Christ. You should worship, but it is not the way some people are still very much fond of sticking on to it. while He is the one who prepared you for Sahaja Yoga.
I don’t know what you can adapt from His life. He was the greatest Sahaja Yogi, but He had so many powers, which are difficult for human beings to have. But His sacrifices, His adjustments, acceptance of whatever was told to Him, He accepted. His love for His Mother and on the cross He said, “Behold the Mother!”, He just said, “Behold the Mother.”
Whatever it is, we have to know also that the Bible is not completely representing Christ, as it has happened with every book. So, there are problems and, as in every religion, people have gone astray from their right path, and are spoiling the name of the people who have been Divine and who started those religions. Also is happened in the Christian nation. Just the opposite of what Christ has said, they are doing.
For us, one has to realize that He came on this Earth to open our Agnya chakra, which is a very difficult thing. Sahasrara is not difficult as Agnya. Agnya chakra is a very constricted chakra on which He resides. And He has said, “You have to forgive yourself and forgive others.” This is the mantra of the Agnya chakra. That is in the Beejakshara we call it “Ham Sham.” Sham is to forgive others. Ham is to forgive yourself. These are the two Beejaksharas are used for Agnya chakra opening. To open the Agnya chakra best is to go into thoughtless awareness. To be in thoughtless awareness, Agnya can open. But Agnya, if it is closed, it can be very dangerous, very dangerous, and can harm you or harm others. Sometimes, people who are possessed also get those possessions in their Agnya chakra and they’ll start acting according to the mutation of these horrible, evil forces within them. As a result, these evil forces take over and we don’t know why such a person is behaving in this manner.
