ETERNAL SAYINGS OF JIBANKRISHNA OR DIAMOND
(Translated from my Bengali book ‘AMRITADHARA’)
Volume 16, August, 2016
Man is Brahma with infinite power
Thakur (Sri Ramkrishna) is saying, ‘In Ramayana it is mentioned that though Rama looks like human being, yet the Universe is within him.’ Why he did not explain that this Universe is within every human being? Though he knew that there was no existence of Rama anytime. If he would have said that this Universe is with every human being, what would have happened? The man would become restless and try to see this. What they are doing? They have kept the man aside, not allowing him to know that he has immense power within him.
The Vedic Rishis (Sages) are saying, ‘Aham Brahmasmi’(I am Brahma or Supreme Being), as if they tried to say that only they became Brahma, not others. No, they meant to say that each and every human being is Brahma.
Listen, this was the country where if a man used to utter the Vedic hymns, hot lead used to be poured in his ears. What should be said for these affairs! And to retain these mentality this Vedic truth disappeared from their bodies. Where it was uttered ‘I am Brahma’, people of the same country are using cow-dung and urine as sacred offering for purifying the bodies, worshiping snakes, cows! This is your religion!
[Brihad Aranyaka Upanishad has mentioned:
When a man (the Vedic sage) thinks he is about to depart, he says to his son,’Thou art Holy Knowledge (Brahma). Thou art sacrifice. Thou art the world.’
Verily, whatever has been learned (from the Vedas), the sum of all, this is expressed by the word ‘Knowledge’ (Brahma). – 1.5.17]
When the world is centralized within the body it can control the spiritual world
What is the own self? Everything including the realizations in ascent and descent is the own self. See, when I saw water in pranamay Kosha (Sheath) it is my own self. When I saw light in the fourth plane, it is my own self. Then in the fifth plane and sixth plane there I had realization and ultimately in the seventh plane I visualized God’s light or Atma or the great Soul. Thereafter I gained this knowledge that I am not body but the Atma or Soul. Then I saw the universe within this Soul, then saw the manikin form of God (Manus Ratan) in the Avatarhood – All these are the ‘own selves’.
Then what happened? I have become this universe – these are all the own selves. But what happened here? Am I saying that I have become all these which I am visualizing? No! you are saying, ‘Sir, you are our own selves, that means just the reverse of Atmagyan (Self – knowledge). There is more after this – Now you are all of us. Now what will happen after this? I shall visualize this living universe within me, that means this universe will be centralized within me and I shall control this world (spiritual).
I have realized now that this is an absurd data that all the people of the world will come and tell me that we are you. This is not possible. When this world will be centralized within me and I shall realize that I am controlling this spiritual world, then only this will be correct. It menas whatever will arise spontaneously in the spiritual world, that will flash within the human race. This phenomenon has been mentioned as ‘Sadvidya’ in Kashmir Shaivism. Though it cannot be concluded unless it manifests.
What is true Religion
Do you know what is the meaning of divine knowledge and devotion? Divine knowledge is the Aryan Cult and devotion is the Non–Aryan. They have meant the devotion as self–mortification and the mixture of these three are their divine knowledge and devotion. Whatever I have seen are all prejudiced. What is the meaning of Religion to me? The revelation of the hidden and unknown power of this human body. To know that infinite power of this human body is the religion.
Difference between Vedas and Upanishads
Whether Upanishad accepted Vedas (the ritualistic performances)? I have read before you, but none of you couldn’t conceive. Do you know where the Rishis of Upanishads are contradicting the Vedas? When they are describing the ‘Yagyas’ (Fire ceremony), they are saying ‘when the priests are entering the arena of the fire ceremony, they are chanting – Procession of dogs chanting – ‘Om let us eat, Om let us drink.’ When the priests were entering the arena of the fire ceremony, surely they were chanting the hymns of Vedas. By taunting in such a manner what did they mean? They were eradicating the Vedic hymns. That means they were not accepting Vedas (the ritualistic performances). But not only so, they contributed a new thing.
Jagyabalka was telling Usast Chakrayan, ‘It is your Soul which is the inner self of all beings.’ But what this Soul means, they couldn’t say. And what proof we have got here? We have got here the form of a living human being which they meant Soul. What does it mean? There is no necessity of Chanting hymns. Don’t go anywhere. See here! I don’t know a single word of any hymns, but all these realizations are manifested within me.
[Some thousands of years ago, Mundaka Upanishad mentioned about two kinds of knowledge – the traditions of religion and the knowledge of the Eternal (Upanishad):
It was mentioned that Rishi Angira was saying to Saunaka, a house holder, “There are two knowledges to be known – as indeed the knowers of Brahma are wont to say, a higher (Para) and also a lower (Apara). [1.4]
Of thee, the lower is the Rig-Veda, the Yajur-Veda, the Sama-Veda, the Atharva-Veda, Pronounciation, Ritual, Grammer,Definition, Metrics, and Astrology.
Now, the higher is that whereby that imperishable is apprehended. (1.1.4-5)]
DIAMOND AND THE AMAZING FACTS ABOUT DREAMS AND REALITY AFTER HIS DEATH
(Translated from my Bengali book ‘Tales of Divine Dreams’)
Volume 16, August, 2016
SEEING DIAMOND IN DREAMS THROUGH DIAMOND”S COMPANION
Ms. Anindita Mondal lives at Ichapur, 24 Parganas (North) of West Bengal State, India. From the very childhood she used to hanker after one question – from where man comes, where does he go; why is he born and why does he die.
When she was 14-15 years old, she took interest in reading religious books. But still her thirst was not fulfilled. Lastly she got in hand the Gospel of Sri Ramkrishna and she felt peace. She read that Sri Ramkrishna was saying that God can be seen, only to call him from the core of the heart. Gradually she grew a great regard and attraction on Sri Ramkrishna. Whenever she fell in great agony or sorrow, she used to call Sri Ramkrishna. She had this belief that he has such force in his words, when he has said that God can be seen, one day she will find the right path.
Then in due course of time she finished her studies, got married and entered fully in family life. When she was going to give birth of a child, she came to her own house at Lake Town, Kolkata. There frequently she used to go to her father’s friend Sambhudas Chatterjee at his residence to hear discussions on Sri Ramkrishna and Diamond. Shambhudas gave her two issues of Bengali magazine ‘Manikya’. After reading the book she was mesmerized and incidentally she was introduced with Dhiren Mondal, a regular companion of Diamond. She took five issues of the magazine and the Bengali book ‘Dharma-O-Anubhuti’ written by Diamond.
But still her thirsts were not fulfilled and one day she went to another companion of Diamond. At the first meeting he seemed to her to be so familiar. He gave her many issues of the magazine.
Then the day came when she dreamed Diamond.
The first dream was like this
Dream 1: It was the month of September,1993. She saw a huge fair with illuminations all round. It was too noisy and surpassing that noise she heard murmuring hymns. She tried to find its source and ultimately came out the circle of the fair. She saw a thin figured monk with clean shaved head and a Kamandalu (brass bowl for keeping water) was reciting the hymns. She began to run after him, but before catching hold of him her dream went off. [He was Diamond who was the real Saint and recognized later on by his photo].
Dream 2: January,1994.
She saw herself alone standing near a great ocean. Everywhere the blue water was seen with a foam waves and she was taking bath. She was enjoying and the touch of the water was producing a great divine joy within her mind. The dream went off, but she always feels the joy. [The ocean is the ocean of God or Supreme one and the seer experienced the touch of it].
Dream 3: May – June,1994.
After completing the reading of the magazine, she slept and saw in the dream that the large heading ‘DHARMA-O-ANUBHUTI’ of the Bengali book (written by Diamond) was seen in the air. The dream went off.
[The effect of reading the book is being established in her.]
One day in 1994, she saw in a dream that she had gone to a hill with two roads on its two sides. On the hill top there was a white marble flower – half sprouted. With a great astonishment she kept on looking at that scene, as if she had come here to visualize God. She then took another road and noticed a house. Inside the house there were a large number of people and the noise was coming. As soon as she stood near the door, a middle aged married lady, wearing a sari, covering her head took her hand into her hand and entered inside. They reached a place through a lane. That was like a portico with a mausoleum. While she was saluting with her knees down on the floor, observed that an old man was seated beside the mausoleum in a semi-shady place. He had a little beard half black half white and giving her a look with a sweet smile. She fell on his feet with crying and felt a pain in her chest. He was no other than Diamond. And the dream went off.
[By the grace of the Holy Mother she met Diamond the Supreme One.]
Dream 5: 13th November,1994.
In the dream Anindita felt that her consciousness was going to be dissolved and then felt a great divine joy. She lost her feelings of her body sense and after a while she uttered ‘Om, Om’! Then she got back her body sense and saw her father-in-law standing in front of her. He told her, ‘now you see, you can do it. Why were you saying that you had not got your initiation for worshiping deities’? Here the dream went off.
[The seer had the experience of loosing body sense.]
Dream 7: September,1995.
Anindita has come to a narrow corridor. There was a circular room in front and she was seated on the floor outside the room. Inside there was an image of the Goddess of serpent. In front of the image 2-3 persons were seated. One of them was a woman. They were very arrogant looking. She felt very funny looking at them and asked, ‘well, what is the gain of worshiping such image’? They looked at her furiously and said, ‘why do we worship for gain’? But Anindita was not afraid and said, ‘yes of course, to achieve Godhood we worship.’ They said, ‘who are you to say all these? Have you seen God’? She answered, ‘yes’! As soon as she uttered these words she felt that she was emerging into the ocean of bliss, and an image of God in the form of Diamond sitting on an illuminated mat appeared in front of her. She was completely drowned in the ocean of bliss. When she got back her consciousness, she had still the feeling of bliss. Then those men told her, ‘It’s only once’! Anindita answered, ‘No! No! Whenever I want to see him, he will appear before me’. The dream went off.
[The dream is self-explanatory.]
FROM MY DIARY OF DIVINE DREAM
Volume 16, August, 2016
Indication of starting of new phase of austerity
364). 14th July, 1979. Saturday. Early morning dream: I was walking on the shore of the river Ganges somewhere, as if I would go to a certain place. Reaching there observed a bamboo fence with a gate. Beside the gate there was a watchman inside. As soon as I reached there, I opened the door. Then I went to another direction through that place. Within a short while I found myself in the residence of a devotee Arun Ghosh. He arranged a great supper for me there. I observed that very big sizes of sweets like Ladykenies were being taken out from big jars. Then I sat inside a room. The supper became ready. In the beginning I was served with soup and spices in a fine looking boul and as II began to take the soup after mixing spices I had to wake up by my mother’s call. It was then half past four A.M.
The dream clearly corroborates the dream seen on 14.6.79 indicating that a new phase of austerity is going to come in the life of the seer. The indication is thus: The seer is entering through a gate to another place and ultimately is found in the house of a devotee whose name is Arun meaning rising sun and is served with a great supper which means a huge number of more realizations are going to be experienced by him.
Purification of spiritual body for new phase
365). 21st July, 1979. Saturday. Early morning dream: I saw that my mother became ill. I kept my mother’s body on my lap and within a short time noticed that she had recovered from her illness and the dream went off.
The meaning of the dream is that the spiritual body of the seer became somehow faulty and ultimately got rid of it to be suitable for new phase of austerity.
Indication of new realizations and their stability
366). 22nd July, 1979. Sunday. Early morning dream: I saw that a big supper was arranged for me in one of my familiar friend. The items were pulao with the finest rice and plenty of fried fishes. I went on eating. When I got back my sense, after almost finishing the items, realized that still then my mother and two others were left to eat. I also couldn’t eat more and found that some pulaos and fried fishes were left. So I asked his mother, ‘These are still left, will it be enough for you’? My mother said, ‘This will be sufficient for us’. Then II took a huge size fried fish and went on eating. At this moment the dream went off.
The dream corroborates the sayings of Sri Ramkrishna in his gospel—‘Mother gives somebody pulaos, fish curries etc …….’, Here it means that mother, i.,e., Adyasakti or the Holy Mother is pleased on the seer, and will give superior realizations to him. Here the seer is going to get more and plentiful superior realizations. Fried fishes means stability of realizations as was said by Jibankrishna. This means that the effects of all the realizations are going to be stable within the body of the seer in future.
Merging of dream with reality
367) 1st week of August, 1979.
As I could not have a nice sleep in the first half of night, at the end of very late night I felt sleepy and in a trance saw that a very senior devotee Dwijendranath Roy of Ghatsila of Bihar (Now Jharkhand) was narrating some facts. Within the trance I was telling him ‘I could not hear it properly as I am feeling very sleepy. After the sleep I shall hear it properly.’ All the facts seemed to me to be a real one. But actually when I woke up from sleep, I realized – Oh! I was dreaming so long!
The dream means that I have grown this sense that reality and dream are identical as per Vedanta.
Dream and Reality became identical
368) 6th August, 1979, Monday.
Early morning dream: I heard that Diamond had again come back to his residence at Kadamtala, Howrah. I was ever whelmed with joy. It seemed to me that Diamond again reappeared after his physical death. But everything seemed nomal to me and as usual I went to Diamond’s room, had some conversations with him and then came back as if the next day again I would go to him. At that moment I had a feeling that leaving everything I should spend my days with Diamond only.
Then I had a break in my sleep and within a short while had a trance and again had a feeling that when Diamond had come back, I would not go to school to-day. I was feeling then the existence of Diamond at his residence at Kadamtala and the whole incidident seemed real to me. But at that moment I actually woke up from sleep.
[This dream indicates that reality and dream is becoming identical to me and this feeling is going to be stable in my body. Moreover I had an experience of getting accompaniment of the Holy Ghost after a long gap. And after thirty years, such situation came when leaving all professional fame and work I had to spend days after doing work for Diamond].
RELIGION AND REALIZATION (EXCERPT)
By Diamond picked up in the street
Volume 16, August, 2016
Place :—Temple of Dakshineswar .
(Henceforth Shri Ramkrishna will be spoken of as
Thakur” when required as it is so done in the Gospel )
- “Year ago, it was spoken by Vaishnavcharan (a Vaishnava admirer of Thakur) that when a man would attain Perfect Knowledge, he would see God in man”.
How does God look?
It is not explained or spoken. It denotes a different story. There is no God anywhere else. A man becomes God. Of course, he is fully aware of it. But the thing does not stop there. The announcement of the attainment of the Godhood will be made in a wonderful way. The people will see Him within and they would make an open declaration (Vide the Preface).
It is not Avatar which has its origin in the Dravidian or the Semitic or the non-Aryan religion. “Man becomes God” is the perpetual truth – Sanatan Dharma.
Avatar is Individualism, whereas Prefect Man is Universalism.
This Avatarism or Dualism in another form has created the greatest discord in the human race; whereas, this Prefect Man uproots the seed of discord from the heart of the man and unites all into One. This tune of Oneness will be sung by the human race and not by the Prefect Man. This is that ‘Point of Union’ sought by Swami Vivekananda for bringing harmony in the midst of this great turmoil in the names of different religions ruling rampant in this beautiful earth.
- “Narayana in the guise of the sadhu.
Narayana in the guise of the cheat.
Narayana in the guise of the Jealous.
Narayana in the guise of the lecher”.
How does Narayana look?
No reply to this extent has been given by anybody. From time immemorial it is the conviction that the one and same Atman is in the heart of everybody but no proof has been set up for it. It becomes hypothesis. It is declared by Swami Vivekananda. “All religions of the world are hypothesis”. The long and short story of the theme is that one realizes and the rest of the human race has got to believe him. The individual realization is no realization. An Universal realization is religion as it is meant for the whole human race. Yes, a Man becomes Narayana. When He becomes Narayana He will be Universally seen in the shape of His own person.
What about the individual realization of this Nara-narayana?
Yes, there is a realization. When a man becomes Narayana by his own internal realizations he dreams that on the palm of his hand he has got Salagram Sila, a symbol of Narayana worshipped in India. But this is Individualism and it is but a seed and ultimately the seed becomes a tree and the tree bears fruit and the fruit is tasted by the whole human race. They come to know by seeing Him within that they are also Narayana in different forms and names. So everybody is Narayana. There is no bar for becoming Narayana.
- “She alone knows why she assumes the two aspects – terrible and compassionate in her at the same time”.
It is spoken of the human body. The image of Kali represents this human body. A man in his own body has got these two aspects – one is animal and the other is divine. Lesser the animality, greater the divinity – but this divinity in a man comes out automatically annihilating the animality, or in other words, this human body is such a wonderful machine of the Mother Shyama that it converts all the evils into Universal goodness, that is the Universal Self – the form of a living man – the attainer of Sukram (Purest of the Pure) in the Vedic term.
DIAMOND’S AFTER-DEATH SPIRITUAL ACTION THROUGH HIS BOOK
(Translated from our Bengali magazine ‘Manikya’)
Volume 16, August, 2016
Seeing Jibankrishna in reality
Gautam Goswami from Charupalli (Bolpur, Birbhum district, West Bengal, India) has narrated his experiences. In the year 1991 I was going see my clock to know the time. I was holding a hurricane. I saw in my open eyes a man inside the clock. He resembled Jibankrishna. I was scared and came back. When next time I again went there I could see nothing.
[The seer saw Jibankrishna as time because clock is the symbol of time. Time is merged in Atma or Soul. Jibankrishna’s form is Atma. This has reference in Upanishad as such.]
Bharat Mondal from Surul, Birhum (West Bengal, India) has narrated his dreams as such:
- In the year 1991 one night I saw in my dream that reading was going on in a room which was fully packed with listeners. All of them was unknown. I went to see the book properly and just at that moment the name of the book became large in size. I noticed that the name was ‘Dharma- O – Anubhuti’ (Religion and Realization in English version). I saw that the reader was Snehamay. There was no place to sit in the room, still I wanted to sit. But due to objection from other listeners I came out. I thought that probably Snehamay would call me, but he could not notice me and my dream was off.
[The book of Jibankrishna or Diamond became the mile stone to the seer. It will be part and parcel in his life.]
2.Another day in the year 1991 I saw in my dream that a marble like object fell into a sea water and immediately a bubble came out of the water. It was then transformed into a lotus. I saw tha Jibankrishna was seated on that lotus and then my dream was off.
[Sea water- Sea of God, Marble – seed which was transformed into Jibankrishna; Lotus- Cerebrum or seventh plane. Brahma is seed and at the same time infinite.]
Tapan Ghosh from Surul (Birbhum, West Bengal, India) has narrated his dream as such:
I saw this dream sometime in the year 1991. In our pond a huse gold fish was trapped in the net. I told me father, ‘Leave the fish.’ But he did not agree. At that moment the fish talked like a human being and told my father, ‘He is right, leave me, Then I forceably released the fish and left in the pond. At that moment I noticed that the fish had two legs like a man. Next I saw that my father went away. It was then night and the moon was seen. I was standing there still. Suddenly the fish appeared and said, ‘Go home now.’ Then and there the fish was transformed into a golden lotus and I was that Jibankrishna was seated on it. The dream was then off.
[Fish is the symbol of Atma or Soul; pond – the cerebrum or seventh plane; Golden fish – Atma looks like golden color – and is transformed into the form of Jibankrishna because the Atma is the form of Jibankrishna. The seer visualized all these.]
DIAMOND AND DIVINE DREAM INTERPRETATION
Volume 16, August, 2016
The Religion of Jibankrishna is beyond Samadhi
June 17, 1960:
Netai Ghosh (To Jibankrishna) – I was seeing in my dream that a good number of people were fed in this room and standing on a place you were telling me, ‘Bring the page of the gospel of Sri Ramkrishna where Thakur (Sri Ramkrishna) was telling Swamiji (Swami Vivekananda) to cross the region of Samadhi (Profound meditation merged in God and it is the zenith of individualistic spiritual realization).
Jibankrishna – Just see what is happening here! Our phenomenon is beyond Samadhi, though I cannot manifest it myself. If it manifests spontaneously then only it will serve the purpose otherwise there is no other way.
Indication of the seer’s spiritual condition
June 18, 1960:
Jibankrishna (To the listeners) – Today Bhakatji came. He saw in his dream that I was telling him to give a lecture standing on a platform. I know the meaning of it. Whomever he will say about our phenomenon he or she will achieve this Supreme Cult.
Visualization of God is indicated to others and the forecast of Jibankrishna on future world
June 19, 1960:
Jibankrishna (To listeners) – Pravat never agrees that he has visualized God. Ultimately his wife saw in dream that Pravat has visualized God. Yet he disagrees. Then he himself saw in dream that he was coming to me after getting down from the bus at Kadamtala and saw that a crowed was saying very loudly that he has visualized God.
Now what is the meaning of this dream? The meaning is that whatever I shall say, the world will say the same thing. There is another thing above it, but I should not say now. Let it manifest in its own way.
Jibankrishna’s form exists within every human being unknowingly
June 21, 1960:
Bholanath Mukherjee (To Jibankrishna) – Last night I saw in my dream that several group photos of ours were taken. There were some familiar and some unfamiliar persons. Just in the midst of us you were seated. When the last photo was taken, it seemed to me that I should show you one photo. But I noticed that in each photo only your outline was seen whereas we were prominent. Showing you a photo I asked you, ‘Why your figure is an outline?’ You were smiling and then said, ‘It is because you could not recognize me properly, and so I remain a mystery. But you are prominent to me’. Here the dream was off.
Jibankrishna – What should I say? It was clear in your dream. But listen to another meaning. I am in every human being unknowingly whether they see my form or not.
Samadhi in dream is above the realization in meditation
June 26, 1960:
Dhiren Roy (To Jibankrishna) – My brother-in-law was ill. I was called in the midnight. After finishing the nursing I went to sleep at 3.30 A.M. I dreamed that you were *** on a cot and I lied on a platform. I asked a man beside me, ‘Is he sleeping now’? He said, ‘Yes, he is in Samadhi (Profound meditation merged in God) for ninety five minutes’. Then i looked outside through the window and saw some dogs. Somebody chased them and they fled. Then I drove out a herd of cows. After that I woke up. My family members said in the morning, ‘After 3.30 A.M. you could sleep for 95 minutes’.
Jibankrishna – What a strange thing! Did they say to you in the morning that you could sleep for 95 minutes! It means that you were in Samadhi for 95 minutes. In the meditation such realization is something, but in dream it is much superior.
