Satsang readers have asked the above question. How do we get this revealed knowledge about Homa Therapy based on ancient wisdom? We say it is from Vedas. How is it that no Vedic scholars either from East or West have ever had access to this knowledge in all known history? We wish to share the direct answer to this question with Satsang readers.
With regard to revelations there is no intellectual process involved. It is Grace alone. The time has come when people realize that science and religion are truly one. The highest religion is “Love Thy neighbour as Thyself” and this is also the highest science. It is stated in Vedic tradition that knowledge is of two kinds. The knowledge which you get by reading scriptures or listening to sermons, lectures, etc. is all lower knowledge because higher knowledge can only be transmitted in silence by a high Master who is well versed in all these sciences and who is leading the life of “Love Thy Neighbour” every moment of his life. Higher knowledge can dawn only when the mind achieves purity.
From creation through this day there is only one message given by all the saints, prophets, messiahs, Avatars, gurus. The message is LOVE. Only when the mind achieves the state of total love the journey of life becomes an endeavor of joy. Only thing that a human being should attempt to do in his life is to train his mind to be full of love all the time. The Bible says, “Be thou transformed by the renewal of the mind”.
Vedas is the ancientmost knowledge know to mankind. This knowledge was given in a language called Sanskrit which was nobody’s mother tongue at any time on earth. European scholars say that Sanskrit is the mother of all Indo European languages. Actually it is more than that.
Vedas is the treasure house of all sciences. Vedas also give a simple path to be full of Love. NOW IT IS BEING RESUSCITATED AS THE FIVEFOLD PATH. This is the basis of all formal religions that go now by various names such as Christianity, Buddhism, Islam, etc. All Avatars, saints, prophets, messengers come to reiterate these very same teachings. They use different words to suit the times and conditions in which they take birth. However the message is the same. “Thou art made in the image of Thy Father” and hence everyone born in human frame has the right and also the duty to realize this state.
Since we live in an age of science now the message goes in the language of science suited to modern times. In modern times, it was Parama Sadguru Shree Gajanan Maharaj of Shivapuri, Alkakot, India who resuscitated this ancient knowledge in a package form calling it the Fivefold Path denoted by five simple words.
The ancientmost process of purification of the atmosphere through the agency of fire which leads to removal of toxic conditions in the atmosphere and purification of Prana, thus, automatic purification of the mind. Agnihotra is the basic Yajnya tuned to the biorhythm of specific definitions of sunrise and sunset, a process in which a copper pyramid of fixed size is used. Ancient science states that this brings nutrition to plant life, renews brain cells, purifies the blood, removes tension from the mind, makes the person more intelligent, etc.etc. The nexus is atmosphere, Prana and mind. Prana is that life energy which pulsates through us and connects us with the cosmos.
Sharing of your material possessions in a spirit of humility to establish non attachment to worldly things.
Disciplining the body and mind to reduce the pull of desires that involve us in various actions and tend to take us away from the state of “Peace that passeth understanding”.
Always good action without expectation of name, fame or reward. “You reap as you sow.” Action without attachment to the fruit thereof, done in a spirit of offering to Almighty Father.
Who am I? What am I here for? What is meant by “Thou art made in the image of Thy Father”? “Thou art perfect as Thy Father in Heaven is perfect!” “The body is the tabernacle and He resides within”. “The kingdom of Heaven is within you”.
Adam said to Eve, “Thou shalt not partake of the forbidden fruit.” “In the beginning was the Word.”
The above words and their definitions are the Fivefold Path of Vedic wisdom. Parama Sadguru Shree Gajanan Maharaj who coined a simple phrase “Fivefold Path” to denote the above was known in all continents as Shree. Shree left the body, the mortal coil, last month on December 6, 1987. He said, “I have not come to destroy but to fulfill all the law and all the prophets”.
Shree blessed Satsang Editor Vasant with this ancient knowledge and asked him to spread it all over the planet, among all races. This knowledge was never transmitted through lectures or writing by Shree but by simply blessing and uttering the words once “knowledge is given.”
Fivefold Path Inc. which publishes Satsang, is a nonprofit organization based in Madison, Virginia to spread Shree’s teachings. Satsang is in its 15th year of publication, starting in 1973.
We do not ask people to change anything. We only share the knowledge of the science of life as given through the Fivefold Path resuscitated by Shree.
You may belong to any religion, spiritual group, social group, Guru, race, country, you will benefit by practicing the Fivefold Path of Vedic wisdom and become a better member of your religion, group, Guru, etc. If you do not belong to any of the above still you will benefit from the practice of the above knowledge.
We share this knowledge about how to make the mind full of love and the material and mental aids to achieve this. All this is given free. You have to decide whether you want to make use of it. We are not crusaders. If you decide to try you have to go by your own experience, fine; if not, then leave it.
One thing we always stress however. It is only knowledge that can take us out of the polluted conditions of the planet. If you refuse to examine you do so at your peril. If after experience you think it is good and beneficial you may stick to it or decide otherwise.
KNOWLEDGE IS SACRED AND ONLY KNOWLEDGE CAN MAKE US FREE.
To receive higher knowledge first purity of mind is essential and for this Agnihotra is the basic material aid as is experienced by thousands in all continents.
We do not ask anyone to follow any particular prophet, master, messiah, messenger, etc. We only explain as stated before by Prophet Muhammad that you should respect all the prophets as they all come to fulfill and not to destroy. The revealed knowledge given through Satsang is a manifestation of Shree’s Grace.
Since the question about our source of knowledge was asked we write about the source for the first time after so many years of publishing. The source is ever fresh. Shree’s leaving the physical body does not make any difference as Shree was and is ever present. It may not be easy to grasp this statement but it is proven by experience.
May 17th is the day on which the Sermon on the Mount was given by Jesus. This sermon teaches the core of Jesus’ message.
December 25th is traditionally celebrated as the birthday of Jesus.
In the case of Shree, it is as follows: May 17th, 1918 is the day on which Shree was physically born in Kharagpur, West Bengal, India. December 25, 1941 is the day on which it was made known to Shree by the Will of Almighty Father, that He who was Buddha, He who was Krishna, He who was Rama has descended again as the Son of Man.
On the full moon day of lunar month of Vaishakh Lord Buddha, while sitting under the Bodhi tree, was made to know by the Will of Almighty Father that He was Buddha, i.e. enlightened and also the Light of the World. Shree was made to know by the Will of Almighty Father similarly about HIMSELF on December 25,1941. Thus the physical birthday of Lord Jesus is the Day of Bodhi for Shree and the day chosen by Jesus for giving His message to the planet (Sermon on the Mount) is the day of physical birth of Shree.
Shree’s Guru is Lord Parashuram who is eternal. Lord Parashuram is the eternal Avatar. As shown by ancient records it was eternal Avatar Parashuram who blessed Rama, who blessed Krishna, who blessed Buddha just before THEIR missions were made public.
The epoch of Krishna was about 5000 years ago. Rama was long before Krishna. Buddha’s time goes back about 2500 years. In case of the first two references about Avatar Parashuram things are very clear and in case of Buddha it is mentioned thus:
Buddha left His palace, young wife, newly born child and went on horseback to Bhargavashram. This was the beginning of his mission. Bhargava means Parashuram. Even in Buddhist tradition these meanings are not widely known just as in Christian tradition the meaning of the appearance of three wise men from the East at the time of the birth of Lord Jesus is not widely understood. All these things happen by the Will of Eternal Avatar Parashuram. Eternal Avatar Parashuram manifested before Shree and initiated Him into Tripuri Mantra on March 12, 1942. On September 21, 1944 Shree took the most potent vow “I will resuscitate the Shrutis.” (The word Shruti refers to Vedas. The word Shruti comes from the verb Shru meaning to hear. Since Vedic Mantras were not composed by any one but were heard and recorded by the seers, they are also called Shruti.)
On December 21, 1944 the Son of Man, Shree, came to know thus “That which was left unfinished during the Avatar of Buddha I come to fulfill.”
The allotted task of Buddha was twofold, to stop Yajnyas (fire sacrifices) wherein flesh and blood offerings were made and to resuscitate Vedic Yajnyas. At the time of Buddha, India was full of perverted Yajnyas wherein animals were slaughtered and offered to the fire. This situation was similar to Jerusalem in Old Testament days wherein flesh and blood offerings on sacrificial altars were commonplace. In India Buddha came to stop these foolish deeds which created bad Karma. In the Middle East Jesus came to stop them and reiterate the ancient Vedic message in simple but profound words, “Love Thy neighbor as Thyself.”
The other part of Buddha’s work, i.e. to resuscitate ordained Yajnyas, was to be fulfilled 2500 years later, i.e. now. Since the immediate allotted task of Buddha was to stop the perverted Yajnyas, he laid stress on that aspect. However, to His disciples He has stated, “The wise perform such Yajnyas wherein there is no violence and killing and such Yajnyas become extremely rewarding.” (Samyutta Nikay).
BUDDHA SPECIFICALLY PRAISED AGNIHOTRA AS THE BASIC YAJNYA. He says “Just as king is the head of humans similarly Agnihotra is the chief among all Yajnyas.” (Selasutta, 568) This was the unfulfilled work which was to be completed during this AVATAR period. This is also the time when NEW AGE was to be ushered in. The sun has already risen on a NEW ERA.
The major task of Shree’s Avatar was to resuscitate knowledge wherby the world would be free from effects of pollution of all kinds including radioactivity and then automatically the Kingdom of Heaven dawns. The scientist of the West will carry these teachings of Agnihotra to the masses and help save the planet.
Kalka in Sanskrit means pollution, poison. There is a tradition in the Indian subcontinent that states that the Avatar which would come after Buddha would be KALKI AVATAR. KALKI AVATAR means AVATAR for destruction of pollution. Shree was Kalki Avatar. The word AVATAR signifies descent of Divine Power on the planet to fulfill a certain allotted task. However, it takes several centuries before people come to know the significance of the work fulfilled by an Avatar. Shree had indicated in 1945 in one of the rare letters ever written, “It is difficult to recognize ME since I have come in a human frame.”
Kalki Avatar Shree came to resuscitate the ancient science given through Vedas, to offer simple, practical means to negate the effects of pollution including thought pollution and to prepare humanity for the New Age which will be Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. Resuscitation of healing fires i.e. Yajnya was the first thing to be done. Shree had only asked two persons to give His message to the planet. Shree asked Potdar Saheb to go to the four corners of India and give Shree’s message to the atmosphere. He was then asked to select one state in India to settle and do His work. Then Shree asked Vasant Paranjpe, Satsang Editor, to convey His message to all people all over the planet and to make a beginning with the United States.
Agnihotra and Yajnya fires now heal in all continents. Now it will be scientists who will carry the message further. If scientists care to investigate the science of Yajnya they will be surprised to find a wealth of knowledge. It is stated in ancient wisdom thus:
“Agnihotra changes the normal state of matter into an ideal state of matter to stamp the pattern you desire i.e. LOVE.”
You should use Homa Therapy of which Agnihotra is the base to grow abundant food in a small area, to improve the texture of soil, to bring nutrition to the plant kingdom, to improve the quality of rain.
Agnihotra is the basic Yajnya. Yajnya is a process in the Vedic science of bioenergy which removes the toxic conditions in the atmosphere and fills it with fragrance and nutrients. We request the scientist, if he is interested, to examine this statement and coordinate his expertise in making a series of experiments pertaining to plants, birds, animals and the effect of Yajnya atmosphere.
SHREE’S GRACE HAD CHOSEN TWO COUNTRIES TO SHOW AS EXAMPLES HOW YAJNYA BENEFITS HUMANITY. THEY ARE POLAND AND CHILE. AGNIHOTRA IS WIDESPREAD IN THESE LANDS.
When an Avatar comes there are some signs on the physical body he has chosen to take. According to ancient tradition the highest number of markings are 18. Shree had all these signs on His body.
IN A LETTER WRITTEN BY VASANT ABOUT TEN YEARS AGO TO A FOLLOWER OF THE FIVEFOLD PATH HE STATED THAT “ACCORDING TO DIVINE PLAN FIRST IT WILL BE THE SCIENCE OF MEDICINE. THEN COMES SPACE TECHNOLOGY AND RADIOLOGY.” MANY THINGS FROM VEDAS ABOUT THESE SCIENCES WOULD BE REVEALED NOW.
Shree had stated, “All over the planet there will be peace, bliss, prosperity. That is what We have come here for.”After much destruction it will be Kingdom of Heaven on earth. The signs are already visible.
In ancient times when technology was highly developed the ruling powers misused their authority and brought the planet to the brink of disaster. This has happened several times. On every such occasion it was Lord Parashuram who intervened. He was the first one to teach the use of interplanetary weapons to earth dwellers to reestablish the rule of justice and peace. In the old days, on such occasions, steps were taken to bring about changes in the magnetic field surrounding the planet to disrupt communication and missile systems.
In the very near future space technology will advance much and we will be able to recognize the operation of these subtle systems of the ancients. We can then make use of this knowledge to rise higher. Sating will be instrumental in bringing this about. It sounds fantastic but it is true.
In the meantime on a priority basis we have to establish several farms in different countries based on Homa Therapy farming to show that when at other places food refuses to grow, insects and pests attack, Homa places will be immune and will flourish. We have to show that without using chemical fertilizers, insecticides, pesticides, herbicides, without spoiling soil texture and subsoil water one can grow large quantities of healthy nourishing food in a small area by means of Agnihotra and Yajnya.
After the Chernobyl disaster, Satsang editor Vasant was invited by some Eastern European scientists to tell them about certain methods from Vedic sciences that protect man from the effects of radioactivity. To prepare the scientists for higher technology, Vasant wrote a book entitled, “Homa Therapy: Our Last Chance”. In the first such meeting held in one Eastern European country, Vasant stated, “To protect the dying forests in Germany and Czechoslovakia you have relied on several methods. You are unable to protect newly planted trees. You have based all your hopes on molecular biology and biotechnology. In the near future you will come to know that your knowledge about these sciences and your way of approach will not be able to save the forests. Homa Therapy as revealed by Shree’s Grace will.”
Some scientists got curious and several meetings were held in Europe seeking Vasant’s guidance. In one such meeting Vasant stated, “You will have to rethink your ideas about time, space and causation. You have to understand that there is only one law operating in the universe. It is the law of Karma, the law of reap as you sow of the Bible. Grace is an aspect of this law.”
Initial observation by some scientists pertaining to chemical analysis and isotope analysis of Agnihotra pyramid ash produced in various countries widely aroused their curiosity further. Vasant told them in the third meeting, “Whatever you want to do you do in one more year. The time is short. If you delay, your services will not be necessary”. By Shree’s Grace this knowledge will be made public through small children who have already taken birth in different countries to usher in the New Age. Those of you who become humble, to them all things will be revealed.”
Vasant has suggested a few experiments to be made pertaining to bacteriology and microflora and Agnihotra Homa Fire. Recently in Chile Vasant stated, “Satsang is an instrument in the fulfillment of Daniel’s prophecy given in the Bible. ‘The vision about morning and evening is true but keep it a secret now for it will be a long time before it comes true.’(Daniel 8-26). Daniel was referring to Agnihotra sunrise/sunset fire. Satsang assures the scientists that Agnihotra and Yajnyas can cleanse the planet of deleterious effects of radioactivity. The proof of the pudding lies in the eating. A painted sign on the wall in the room where Shree used to sit states the following: “THIS IS THE MOST HOLY PLACE WHERE THE DIVINE FIRE APPEARED BEFORE PARAMA SADGURU. IT IS WELL KNOWN THAT A SIMILAR INCIDENT OCCURRED IN THE LIFE OF THE HOLY PROPHET MOSES.” Here the reference is to the story of Moses and the burning bush mentioned in Exodus. The same story is repeated in the Holy Koran. Actually the word ALLAH means AI AHA (Holy Fire). Only through Fire the words came, “I am God. I am God,” states the Bible. Hidden behind the story of Moses and the burning bush lies the profound science of healing the body, mind and spirit. This is the science of Yajnya and Fivefold Path which Shree came to resuscitate. Appearance of Divine fire in Shree’s room was a sign given for the sake of the world as in the case of Moses. “Mankind was one community and Allah sent (unto them) prophets as bearers of good tidings and as warners and revealed therewith the scripture with truth. (2:213) “Say we believe in Allah and that which is revealed unto us and that which was revealed unto Abraham and Ishmael…(2:136)
All the prophets come to reiterate the same message first given through Vedas. Let us not make any distinction between the prophets. All prophets come, “Not to destroy but to fulfill the Law.” (Matthew 5:17)
Finally I wish to repeat the message given through an earlier issue of Satsang:
“We have come for the highest mission on the planet. This is no happenstance, no coincidence. It is all the Divine Plan. In times of great need when the world was in a state of dire emergency there came to the planet a Divine messenger. Now is such a time. Shree has been sent here for this purpose. Many will come to the fire now.”
