JIBANKRISHNA(DIAMOND) THE PERSONIFIED UPANISHAD
Volume-11, May, 2012
(Translated from my Bengali book ‘Upanishader pare’ or Beyond Upanishad)
Diamond – Man in the Sun as mentioned in Upanishad
What a wonderful dream you saw Saila (Chakravarty)! Have you heard what has been written in Isa Upanishad? They said, ‘The man in Sun is Brahma’ (supreme one).And you have seen him! This means that you are also transformed into him. It was even written thousands of years before Isa Upanishad was written. Then these realizations have been continuing through Sruti (By memorizing). Again thousands of years after Upanishad were written we are discussion this. But what they saw in sun could not say clearly. Here, as you are seeing my form in the sun, they could not say so specifically.
I knew that they saw this form. I knew that my form exists in the sun, because that form is unchangeable. Though in Vedas what has been written was in macrocosm. Everybody thinks that form will be seen in the outside sun in the sky. For these reasons Hindus Practise ‘Tratak’ (worshiping outside sun by constant looking at the sun). But with this practice their eyes become fixed gaze or lose their eye-sight. Sri Ramkrishna also practised it for six months and he got fixed gazed eyes. See the difference! Saila has said that he has seen my form in the sun within the body and Isa Upanishad has mentioned about the outside sun.
See, I never used to read these types of books. But why I have brought these books now? A proof may be of three categories: – (1) Guessing; (2) Ascent and (3) Direct. The ascent proof is what Rishis or Great Religious Teachers have said is to be accepted and direct proof is the own realization. Your proofs are direct. Because you have seen yourselves in dreams my form. Now I am hearing that altogether 12-13 people have seen my form in the sun. These books are brought here to establish your direct proof with the ascent proof of the Vedic Rishis.
When you have seen my form in the sun, you have gained Supreme knowledge. Thereafter you have austerities of the lower planes. This is just opposite to Vedas or Tantras, when they say that flowers first and then fruits. Why flowers? To produce fruits of Supreme knowledge. Here you have got first the Supreme knowledge whenever you have seen my form within yourselves.
The state of Brahmahood or Supreme Being and all pervading state of Diamond or Jibankrishna
On 1.6.1958 Diamond says:
The Brahma or Supreme Being of Sankaracharyya in one sense is a judicial word and what has been mentioned in Astabakra Sanghita about Brahma is very interesting. They are saying, ‘Though Brahma is confined in a fixed place, all His actions are performed everywhere.’ See, I am a man. Encircling me what an amazing incident is happening, but I am confined in my own dwelling place! From different places you are coming to me and narrate your experiences. See what a wonderful quote Asrtabakra is giving! How it is tallying with our phenomenon! Sankar’s ‘Supreme Cult’ is individualistic. And Samadhi state is a kind of death. What is it’s utility? Now I have crossed the region of Samadhi. I am a living human being, and this form is within everybody. This is termed as the state of full liberation in life. In ascent state of austerity we find the individualistic Supreme Cult confined within own self. But in universalism in the state of descent how amazingly I am being manifested in so many people!
Lastly I say that Astabakra is also saying, ‘I bow to myself.’ What a wonderful quote! Brahma or the Supreme Being is a living human being. He is confined in a place and he is enveloped throughout the world.
[ Svetasvatar Upanishad has described such person as such:
The one God, hidden in all things; All pervading, the Inner Soul of all beings; The overseer of deeds, in all things abiding; The witness, the sole thinker, devoid of qualities. (6.11)

DIAMOND AND THE AMAZING FACTS ABOUT DREAMS AND REALITY
Volume – 11, May, 2012
Diamond in his life-time
My first visit to Diamond (Jibankrishna)
It was the incident in 1951. Worship festival of goddess Durga was going on. It was the second day (four days festival) which is observed by millions of Bengali people to visit the idols worshipped in the whole state of West Bengal, India.
But mentally I was not feeling well. My mother told me to company my wife to visit the idols. So to obey her I had to accompany my wife and two daughters. But I couldn’t decide where to go. Suddenly I remembered my childhood friend Vijoy and so we went to his residence and along with him and his wife we went out.
We were passing through Kali Banerjee Lane of Howrah town. At a certain place Vijay stopped in front of a house and said, ‘The man sitting inside that room is a strange man. Talking about Sri Ramkrishna he often falls intoSamadhiState. Nothing is discussed in his room except the topics of god. I noticed that he was seated on his cot with his two legs hanging head downwards and his two hands were resting on his lap. It seemed as if his mind was in deep thoughts.
Later on I heard from him when a saint stays alone, he rests in Samadhi or ecstasy being united with God.
From the road with two folded hands I paid my salute to him. I was lucky as my prayer reached him. Within months in the month of December I got the opportunity to meet him. It was a difficult task that time because there were lots of restrictions to meet him for any one unless he had some realizations. And for this reason many had to wait for some time.
However, we again started walking, but I felt no encouragement to visit the idols. My only thoughts were when I would return to that residence and when I would see him again.
When we returned, it was late night and infront of that house I paid my salute to him with great devotion. This was my first visit to Jibankrishna (Diamon) on the second day (Mahastami is called). Later on I heard from him that on this particular day visualization of god or Atma occurs. Lord Krishna was born on this day (According to Hindu mythology). He told us later on, ‘I visualized Atma or great soul on this very day’.
In the month of December, 1951 on a Saturday Sudhindra Nath Sinha took me to Jibankrishna. He got prior permission from him.
When we entered into his room, somebody was reading the gospel of Sri Ramkrishna and he was giving interpretations which seemed very hard to me. I was seated on a chair after bowing to him. Suddenly he looked at me sharply. I was scared. Then he asked me, ‘Where is god my boy’? I couldn’t answer first. But when second time he asked me, spontaneously the answer came out from my mouth, ‘God is within me’. Hearing this he became satisfied and said, ‘You have a body of good capacity’. Yes, the universe is within the Atma (soul) and Atma within the human body’. I couldn’t remember anything else he told that day. At9pmalong with others I returned after bowing down to him.
Henceforth every day after office hours and Sundays I used to sit in his room. Absence for a single day seemed to me as a vacant day.
Within a few days I saw him in a dream. I saw that there was a house and Jibankrishna was also staying with us. One day after returning from his office he came home wearing a dhoti and a jeans coat with a pair of shoes with laces.
That day was his salary day, so he gave me two bundles of ten rupees note and told to me to keep one bundle with me and spend another bundle. My dream was off.
Later on I got its meaning. The notes were spiritual wealth. One bundle I shall keep, which means I shall have realizations in future and another bundle to be spent which means whomever I shall tell about him, they will see him in dreams.
Practically it proved true in the long run when many persons saw Jibankrishna in dreams after hearing his name from me.
I am now mentioning a dream seen on January 27, 1970. Early in the morning I saw in my dream a new and middle size room. The floor was recently cemented. Jibankrishna was lying on that floor with bare upper body and wearing a dhoti. I was sitting alone on the floor a bit away from him. An unknown fear was playing in my mind and I was thinking, if someone comes now I shall be relieved. But overcoming the fear I started taling. I said to him, ‘With bare body you are lying on the floor, you will be attacked by cold’. He said, ‘No, no, the floor is cold and I am liking it’. So I got some encouragement and said, ‘Have you seen the magazine Manikya which we are publishing? (In reality we started publishing this Bengali magazine since 1968 which includes the dreams, dairies and miscellaneous articles about Jibankrishna). He said, ‘yes my boy, I have seen it. It is nice’. Again I said, ‘What we have heard from you, we are trying to publish those exactly’. Hearing this he seemed to be happy with a smiling face he said, ‘It is correct’. Then he mentioned a line from Manikya. It was not remembered by me except a word ‘Transformed’ which he meant to say that this word should replace another word. I told him, ‘Then we shall omit that word and replace it by this word ‘Transformed’. But he said, ‘No, let it be, you need not omit. The dream was off.
Before ending my experience I shall mention another remarkable dream seen on March 18, 1961 where a future of America and Europe was seen.
In my dream I saw that Jibankrishna would go to London and so he was making necessary preparation. Then he approached by a cargo ship fromCalcutta. I went to see him off.
The ocean was endless and I saw the ship going far away. After a while there was a storm. But I thought when god was on the ship there would be no harm. At the same time it appeared in my mind that the Americans would come to meet Jibankrishna. The dream was then off. When I narrated this dream, he interpreted thus: ‘This indicates that in future this oneness will spread in Europe through the Americans. This is a strange dream’!
Now I have realized that my human birth is honored by getting Jibankrishna as my God-the-Preceptor by getting constant guidance in the spiritual as well as in daily life.

Diamond’s appearance after death in dreams and reality
(Translated from the magazine ‘Manik’ published from Bolpur Reading Center)
How I saw Diamond in dream before hearing anything about him
Ms. Jayanti Chatterjee of Ruppur, Birbhum district of West Bengal State, India narrated some of her dreams where he saw Diamond without hearing anything about him.
Her narration is such according to her version :
In my first dream I saw Goddess Kali blessing me with flowers in her left hand. Later on I saw an old man with clean saved head. Many old flowers were also seated there. One of them told me, ‘Do you know him? He is Jibankrishna’ (Diamond). He was laughing with joy. I was also happy and my dream was off.
In my second dream I saw that I had gone for a bath in a pond. I noticed that I had some food in my hand. I fed a cobra at the steps of the pond. But she was not becoming calm and began to make a hissing sound. As soon as I got up from my bath I got her bite on my knee. She talked like a human being and told me, ‘It was your predestined, so I bite you.’ But I felt no pain. Then I came again near the pond and saw that the same old man seen in my first dream was seated beneath a Gulmohar tree (Delonix regia). With a great joy I woke up.
[Here snake is the symbol of Kundalini or life force which was awakened by the grace of God-the-Preceptor Diamond.]
In many other dreams I saw Diamond in various ways.
One day my elder brother Sukumar was discussing with someone about Diamond. Once I heard the name of ‘Jibankrishna’ and I was perplexed. Later on I told my brother, ‘I know Jibankrishna about whom you were discussing.’ He was surprised and asked me, ‘How do you know’? I told him, ‘He often appears in my dreams.’ Next Day he took a small photo of Diamond from Jambuni and showed me. As soon as I saw it I felt a shivering and told, ‘Oh! I see him frequently in my dream!’
After this incident my mother, elder sister and father all began to see Diamond in their dreams.
FROM MY DIARY OF DIVINE DREAM
Volume -11, May, 2012
MERGING OF DREAMS AND REALITY
16) Achievement of dreaming state
4th July, 1984, Wednesday. Early morning dream : I had gone to a place where I saw a very big cinema hall. I went inside and began to see the picture but everything seemed to me to be dream like.
The next day I saw in a room that an unknown person and a devotee Dhiren Mondal were seated. I told the unknown man, ‘you know that in a dream I saw a cinema in a place. When I was seeing it, everything seemed to me to be dream like. Here ended the dream.
In a previous dream seen on 20.12.1981 where I had the same experience and now again the same dream like experience I had. It shows that I am going to have the state of Vedanta’s theory ‘This world is in a dreamy state.’
17) Divine dreams and the reality are the same and the seer’s future
7th January, 1985, Monday.
Early morning dream : I observed that my own bed had become much larger than before. On one side Dhiren Mondal and on another side I was lying. Somewhere some spiritual songs were sung. I moved nearer to brother Dhiren and then and there I woke up and with a great surprise I heard that the same song was sung outside also by a singer through a mike.
[The dream clearly indicated some aspects –
(1) The seer’s spiritual body has become more powerful as the bed symbolizes the body or brain;
(2) The seer will be ‘Dhira’ (Calm) as the nameshake of ‘Dhiren’;
(3) There is no difference between reality and divine dreams and it will be in action within the body of the seer in future when whatever dreams he will have, will come true in reality.]
(This proved true in numerous cases in the long run)
18) Repetition of identical state of dream and reality
6th October, 1992, Tuesday.
After waking up from the early morning sleep I put on the switch of the tape recorder and went on listening the song on Jibankrishna (Diamond) sung by a devotee Anath Mondal. I felt sleepy and within that state I could listen that song and when in full sleep even then I could listen the same song. When I again woke up the same song was heard. This phenomenon was repeated several times. At a certain stage within the deep sleep when the song was finished, suddenly I woke up and strangely heard that simultaneously the same song was completed.
The dream clearly indicated that within the seer the realization of Vedanta i.e., dream and reality are identical has become established. It means that whatever divine dreams will be realized by the seer, these will have the effect on reality. And it came true in the long run both in microcosm and macrocosm.
RELIGION AND REALIZATION((Abstract)
By Diamond picked up in the street
Volume -11, May, 2012
Place :—Temple of Dakshineswar .
36. “Yearning for God is the appearance of. Aurora. Then the sun bursts
forth. Yearning is succeeded by seeing God .”
Aurora is seen the plane whence God’s light is seen . Seeing of the sun has two aspects : —
(1) There is a hanging silk screen before your eyes and behind it is a glorious rising sun . It is the entrance to the seventh plane .
(2) Second one is Atma, God . It is the seventh plane .
37 . “ There will be a combination of three forces of attractions and they will undergo transformation into God and God will be seen .The three attraction are—(1) the attraction of the worldly man for his worldly possession.(2) the love of a mother to her child and (3) attachment of a wife to her husband.”
The three attractions are (1) this physical sheath, (2) the aerial sheath and (3) Bhagavati Tanu or the sheath made of God’s light as seen in the sixth plane .
Here the body has been divided according to the Vedas . They tally with each other and they are not different in substance, save and except, that the divisions and realizations in the Vedic system is much deeper and clearer for a man to understand the process of transformation of life-power into God .
1) The attraction of the worldly man for his worldly possessions—is body . The foremost love a man entertains is for himself i.e., he loves himself utmost and best . His soul will emanate from his body and he will losing his attachment for his own body .
2) A mother’s love for her child—is the aerial body . It comes out from the physical sheath and it is seen . What an aerial body ? In dream a man sees himself to fly . The flying body, he sees in the dream, is the aerial body .
3) Chaste wife—is the inner body made of God’s light . The body made of God’s light is ultimately transformed into God and He is seen in the seventh plane.
38 . “Mew, Mew,” cries the kitten and calls its mother and
that is its sole function”.
For seeing God, all that a man can do is to keep on praying . Shri Chaitanya always used to say ‘Krishna’! ‘Krishna’!
Thakur used to say—‘Mother ! Mother’!
Jesus used to say— ‘Father ! Father’ !
Mohammed used to say—‘Allah ! Allah’!
The realizations which are seen are spontaneous . It is called Vidwat of the Vedas . The man who is blessed with all these realizations is but a mere witness .

AMAZING FACTS ABOUT DREAMS AND REALITY IN JIBANKRISHNA’S LIFE TIME
[ In Jibankrishna’s(Diamond) life time innumerable people used to come to him for listening to his eternal sayings and yogic explanation on the Gospel of Sri Ramkrishna . He used to appear in dreams and physical body among the listeners being their God-the-Preceptor or the Holy Ghost transforming them into Brahma or the Supreme Self. But all these incidents happened without his knowledge.
A large number of people used to see him in dreams after coming in contact with him and many people used to see him in dreams and physical body without coming in contact with him or without knowing anything about him. Later on coming to him through the regular listeners they were astonished after identifying him as the same man seen in their dreams or in physical body.
But the most amazing part of this phenomenon is that, even after so many years of his death in 1967, these incidents are not only continuing but increasing day by day in different parts of India and abroad.
This article is a collection of a few incidents which are narrated in several parts.]
Part – 1
April 12, 1958
One Parsee friend of Jahangir Batliwala (He is also Parsee and was a companion of Diamond) has seen Diamond in dream without seeing him in reality. He saw another dream and got the interpretation of that previous dream. He has sent a letter to Jahangir and narrated his dreams Diamond was telling him, ‘Your aim will be fulfilled’.
Diamond told Jahangir, ‘You inform him by letter that God has blessed you. And in the first dream all fakirs, saints etc. what he saw in his dream indicated his previous births. That Fakir had some supernatural powers as were seen in his dream. However this is a good dream’.
April 26, 1958
Ravi Ganguly of Barrackpore (24-Parganas North, West Bengal) narrated one of his wife’s dream to Diamond thus: She was dreaming that Sri Ramkrishna was seated in a room with nearly twenty five devotees. There was a big photograph of Sri Ramkrishna hanging on the wall. Suddenly you came out of the photograph. What she described about the figure was the same like your form, and by her description about other devotees I understood that they were Satya Ganguly, Poritosh Nath, Ramchandra Das, but others could not be verified. ‘Diamond’ – She has seen a very strange and nice dream. And not only so, besides me she has seen many other persons of this room. Just think what a strange sportive form of god! It proves that the universe is within Atma or soul pay my regards to my mother.
August 8, 1958
Diamond asked Vinay Mukherjee, ‘How have you seen me in dream before coming here?
Vinay – When I was four years old. One night I woke up at midnight and saw three figures of multivarious colors like butterflies. Then one day at noon time I saw your tiny figure like thumb. You were looking at me with smiling face. I was then a grown up man.
Diamond – How wonderful!
