DIAMOND (JIBANKRISHNA) UPANISHAD PERSONIFIED
Translated from my Bengali book ‘Upanishader pare’(Beyond Upanishad)
Volume-19, Sept, 2012
The real oneness is manifested in Diamond
What is the knowledge of oneness? A man sees that he only remains on earth. Then coming down he sees this world and existence of many. When this ‘many’ will come and tell you, “These ‘many’ which you are seeing outside are you”. Then real sense of ‘Oneness’ will grow within you. This whole phenomenon is for all human beings. Upanishad has mentioned about ‘Man’ only. Now you say, ‘why all you are seeing my form within you? I am an ordinary man. Isn’t so? So what does it prove? These things are only for human beings. The body of a human being carries power of infinity which cannot be fathomed. How wonderful it is!
Upanishad has mentioned individual visualization of God but could not say about universal visualization
On 27.10.1960 Diamond said:
I have read in one place of the book ‘The Bible of the world’ brought by you, that they have described the characteristic of the universal self on the basis of Upanishad.
They are mentioning at first – ‘In the beginning there was self alone in the shape of a person’. What has been mentioned in Brihad Aranyaka Upanishad is that they have described the characteristic of Universal self. But who will decipher its meaning!
A man with his birth carries the sense of I am this body out of the ‘Universal I’ and it is limited within that sense. It is applicable to every human being. Then he sees that he is not this body but he is soul or God. When he becomes god, will he say to every human being, ‘see, I am God’? No! Mankind will bear this proof after seeing him within their bodies. And then my form is transformed into Universal self. But do Upanishads cover this stage of evidences as you have borne? No, far off from it! I had a dream where it was shown that my place is above Upanishad. But this is not the end of it. You judge what do they mean by the term ‘Universal self’.
Again, as I have been seeing you within me, this is also Universal self. Now among these two types of ‘Universal self’ which one they are meaning? In their case it is a superior type of imagination. Here it is practical. Over all, religion begins in a man after seeing my form within himself and that is neither ‘there was’, nor ‘there is in the shape of a person’, it is in the shape of a living person’.
Sometimes back I used to think that all these were hoax. But now I have understood what a Truth it is! Have any writers of your Hindu scriptures written that the words ‘In the beginning’ meant a living human being? The thing starts with a living human being and that living man is seen by the people of the universe within them’ – say in what scriptures this has been mentioned! Listen, the individualistic god ‘in the shape of a light’ can never be proved. This is a prejudice and I, have written in my book ‘The Religion and Realization’. The Universal God – in the shape of a living person. How many souls are there? One and when He becomes universal, that should be seen in the shape of a living person. This is my form what you are seeing.
In individualistic austerity Upanishad has mentioned God as thumb like and I have seen that. But Paramatma or Great Soul is the form of a living person which is my form, and the proof is coming from the world. My form will exist for ever and I have written that in my book ‘Religion and Realization’.
[A person of the measure of a thumb like a light without smoke; lord of what has been and what is to be; He alone to today and tomorrow too – Katha Upanishad 4.13].
DIAMOND AND THE AMAZING FACTS ABOUT DREAMS AND REALITY IN HIS LIFE TIME
(Translated from my Bengali book ‘He Mahajivan’)
Volume – 19, September,2012
My first experience with Jibankrishna (Diamond)
It was the month of March,1952. I was working in place of the Estimator in my office. There I was introduced with Sudhindra Nath Sinha and Amal Chatterjee. During leisure they used to discuss about Swami Vivekananda. I studied a bit Swamiji’s work. My mind was about to calm down after mixing with them.
One day during discussion Sudhin told me, ‘will you go to such a person who has visualized God’? I was stunt hearing it and couldn’t speak. Seeing my condition he said, ‘Don’t worry. He leads a simple and ordinary life like us and is a service man.’ Hearing it I was curious and said, ‘yes, I shall go.’
At that time I was a resident of a mess at Keshab Sen Street of Kolkata. And I never had any deep thoughts about God. But the day Sudhin told me to take me to that man, I became restless to go there. So one afternoon I went with Sudhin to the residence of Jibankrishna at Kali Banerjee Lane of Howrah town. It was March 23, 1952.
There was a single cot inside his room. He was lying on the bed wearing a dhoti (piece of white cloth), bare upper body, complacent and reddish healthy body. Inside the room there was a monk (Kesto Maharaj) sitting on a chair.
We bowed down to Jibankrshna. With a great affectionate voice he welcomed Sudhin, ‘come Sudhin, come’! I was introduced with him by Sudhin and he welcomed me, ‘come my boy! Come and sit’! We all sat on the chairs.
In the meanwhile he got up from bed and sat he asked me whether I had seen any dreams. I nodded. He said, ‘It is all right. Listen to Thakur’s (Sri Ramkrishna) Gospel. Saying this he began to read himself the Gospel of Sri Ramkrishna.
After a while, he remarked, ‘With a great fortune one gets initiation in dream. Mahaprabhu got initiation in dreams. Thakur used to say those who is ‘Swapnasiddha’ gets liberation of Soul.
Then again he started reading. In the mean time Basanta Samanta, Satya Ghosh and Bistu Ghosh came Jiankrishna asked Sudhin and Bistu to sit on the cot, and gave the Gospel to Bistu for reading.
During reading I noticed that while giving yogic explanations on Thakur’s metaphors, yogic symptoms started manifesting in his body and sometimes he was in Samadhi stage. Before this I had no idea about Samadhi.
Hearing all his explanations and seeing all these yogi symptoms in his body I felt a hilarity in my body and was quite unwilling to leave that place. At about 8 P.M. I returned with Sudhin. Before leaving I bowed down to Jibankrishna and keeping his hand on my head he said, ‘Again come my boy’!
On my way back home I was feeling a sense of ecstasy. All the time I was thinking when to go to him. After the first meeting with Jibankrishna my mind was changed so much that nothing in the world seemed to be evil and all my zeal, anger and fear were gone.
Henceforth once in every week I used to go to Jibankrishna and I had a series of divine dreams.
The first dream after going to Jibankrishna was such:
I was standing on the bank of a river. My elder brother Kumud brought a boat for me and asked me, ‘can’t you go to the other side? Come let me take you there,’ and then he pulled me on the boat.
Second day I narrated this dream to Jibankrishna. He said, ‘elder brother means God. He himself is crossing you this life river. You need not fear any more’. That day he told me many things and made me sit beside him on the cot.
Second day after going to Jibankrishna I saw this dream:
As if going out of Dakshineswar temple I was going north side towards Panchavati. On my left side there were some bushes on the bank of river Ganges. Both sides of the path green space were visible.
After coming to a certain distance from the temple I saw a few meters away two persons sitting face to face on two similar mats on both sides of the path were talking to each other. Though I could not listen so distinctly, but I guessed that they were talking about me.
Sri Ramkrishna was seated on the east side of the path facing Westside which means facing the river, and Jibnakrishna was facing eastside. Hearing that the conversation was going on about me, I stood there without approaching.
I heard that Sri Ramkrishna was saying, ‘The Preceptor is Sacchidananda (God)’ and I noticed that Jibnakrishna was agreeing to that. Then both of them were enjoying for anonymous decision. This was my requirement to hear it and then silently I left the place.
The third day when I went to Jibnakrishna he made me sit beside him very affectionately. That day both Sudhin and I went to him. When he asked me about any of my dream, I narrated the dream. As soon as I finished my narration, uttering the word ‘Guru Sacchidananda’ (God-the-Preceptor) he fell into Samadhi state. That day that state persisted for a long time. Then lastly he became normal.
But whenever anybody came to him that day he narrated my dream to them and fell into the same state of Samadhi. I was overwhelmed with charm seeing his condition which stamped permanently in my life.

FROM MY DIARY OF DIVINE DREAM
(NARRATION AND REPITITION OF PREVIOUS DREAMS)
Volume – 19, September, 2012
Fervent prayer for the welfare of human beings – Repetition of realization
14) Third week of August, 1998.
In one early morning I saw a dream in which I was crying with shedding of tears and saying, ‘when this book ‘Dharma-O-Anubhuti’ will be known to the whole human race’! I continued shedding tears repeatedly saying this. Then I work up.
Beforehand the same type of realization was experienced by me and also saw Diamond in dream shedding tears for the welfare of human race. All these realizations indicated the forecast of Diamond that whatever spiritual thoughts will arise in his mind unknowingly, will create good effects on human race without their knowledge and this bring real welfare to the world at one time. As there is no difference between the spiritual bodies of the seers and Jibankrishna (Diamond) whatever thoughts will arise in dreams or other realizations will bring welfare to the human race. This is a clear indication of the future world.
Narration of a previous dream to a devotee about transformation of the seer to Garura
15) 14th December, 1998, Monday, Place : Sambalpur, Orissa.
Early morning dream: I saw that I had been narrating to Sudhindra Nath Sinha (companion of Diamond) the previous dream in which I was transformed into Garura on 21.09.1993. After narrating the details, I told him, ‘will you please see the story of Garura’? He said, ‘Yes, I shall see it’. After this none of the conversations could be remembered and the dream went off.
The dream indicated the stability of the previous dream’s effect within the body of the seer.
Continuation of the previous dream and the indication of confirmation of his austerity of earth
16) 27th January, 2004, Tuesday, Place: Santipur.
Early morning dream: This dream had the continuation of the previous dream seen in the previous day. Diamond (Jibankrishna) continued to stay at our residence at Santipur. And now it was afternoon. Diamond was taking rest after his lunch was over as happened in the previous dream.
I was engaged in some work on the north facing long balcony. It seemed to me that Diamond was intending to read the book ‘Dharma-O-Anubhuti’ (written by Diamond in Bengali). All the members of our family including elder brother’s wife, grandson, wives of other two brothers and many others were seated to hear his reading. He started reading and I engaged myself in working at the balcony. For a moment I entered into the room to hear Diamond’s reading and noticed that sitting straight he was reading and others were listening to him. Then I came outside. After a while I was discussing with my elder sister-in-law about the arrangement of Diamond’s bed. There was a rope cot in the room. So I said that Jibankrishna could use this cot as he would not lie with anybody. But then and there I said, ‘no, he might get hurt in his spinal cord if he used this rope cot. So ultimately it was decided that an arrangement would be made on another cot in a separate room.
Meanwhile the reading was finished and going there I saw Diamond was standing on the south facing balcony visualizing the scene of the garden. I stood beside him having a conversation with him. Once he said, ‘Tomorrow you tell to give me chana-matar (a mixed vegetable of pea) with rice during my lunch’. I said, ‘yes, I will.’ But I became surprised with the thoughts that such combination was never tested by Diamond. Thereafter both of us stood still for a long time without any conversation.
In the next scene I saw that it was morning and I was doing my work but saw that Diamond was picking something from below the ground and keeping in a bag. When it was filled up he said, ‘Keep it’. I could not understand why he gave it to me and what were the things. But I kept the packet with me and at this moment the dream went off. Immediately after I woke up it flashed in my mind, oh! So long Souren Bhattacharjee was also lying on a cot in the north facing room!
Such a dream with so much deep impression and long lasting created a very hilarious effect on me and lasted for two days.
Some questions played in my mind thus : those who were with Jibankrishna in his dream – what will be the effect on tem? Either the effect of such accompaniment will remain in embryo condition or will give effect in future.
Then another thought came in my mind, what were the underground things which Jibankrishna gave me? Underground things are born under the earth which may indicate that Jibankrishna gave to the seer the future realizations on the austerity of earth. Let the future judge it.

Place—Temple of Dakshineswar.
(Thakur means Sri Ramkrishna)
69) “Can you count the portion of measure
of knowledge of God in me ?”
God is in full measure in a man. The quantity of emanation of God from the body depends upon the grace of God. It is His sport and there is no control over it.
What is full measure?
There is a layer over the cerebrum. The layer is lifted. The cerebrum is seen. It is full measure. The veil ignorance is removed and the ocean of knowledge shines before the vista.
70) “I am sure that I have never seen before such combination of knowledge, Ecstatic love, faith in God, spontaneous renunciation and universality”.
All these good qualities are but attributes of God. God has incarnated in Thakur, so these good qualities are manifested in him and they are read by Shri M after five visits to him.
71) “Just take my name”.
In repetition of God’s name the doors of the seven planes are opened .
72) “Then somebody will take you to me”.
God-the-preceptor takes a man to God and shows him the God .

73). “As soon as he got into the boat, his outer consciousness left him inner self was transformed into God (Samadhi) .
Coming in contact with so many devotees, God in Thakur revealed Himself spontaneously.
This outward life enters in the inside and gets transformed into God.
As long as Kundalini is in the outside she is but life-power. She turns from the outside, changes her course, and goes into the inside of the body. With her advance towards the cerebrum, the body loses outer consciousness leaves the body and she herself gives out God.
74). “Thakur thinks of God without form (Brahma) but again worships images of Gods and goddesses with flower and sandal paste and also dances and sings holy songs before them with ecstatic love”.
Not unlike Buddha and Sankar, Thakur was matured in meditation, but also like Chaitanya he was mad in love with God . Thakur said about himself, “In my body, I am Absolute (Advaita—unqualified monism). Divine Consciousness (Chaitanya) and perpetual joy of Bliss (Nityananda—perpetual manifestation of joy in the body)”.
DIAMOND’S AFTER-DEATH SPIRITUAL ACTION THROUGH HIS BOOK
(Translated from our Bengali magazine ‘Manikya’)
Volume – 19, September, 2012
Seeing Diamond in dreams and reality after his death through Reading Centers
Ms. Chanda Ghosh attendsLucknow reading centre and listens to the reading of Diamond’s book ‘Religion and Realization regularly.
In the month of April – May, 1988 she was two dreams and narrated as such :
1) I was seated in a boat and a man sitting on another side was rowing. I told the steersman, wherever I want to get down you have to stop there. The boat was running, and after a while I saw a quay and it was written there on a board ‘Amrita Ghat’ (The quay of nectar). I told the man, ‘wait, I shall get down here’. I got down and wrote on the board ‘Kathamrita’ in place of only ‘Amrita’ (Kathamrita is the Gospel of Sri Ramkrishna). Then I got up in the boat and it started running. Again after going to a certain distance I saw another quay where on a board it was written ‘Dharma Ghat’ (a quay of Religion). I told the steersman, ‘wait, stop here’. I then got down and replaced the word ‘Religion’ by writing ‘Dharma-O-Anubhuti’(Religion and Realization’ book written by Diamond). Then the steersman took me to another quay but I could remember anything and my dream went off.
2) In my dream I saw that some monks from Ramkrishna Mission had come to me by a car. Their main object was to take a donation from me. One of them stood in front of the door but couldn’t enter inside. He said, ‘There is a force inside the room and so I unable to get inside.’
When I allowed him. He could enter and then said, ‘To serve the Living beings we have come for donation.’ I told him, ‘Thakur (Sri Ramkrishna) has said about serving God and you have come to serve living beings!’ The monk said, ‘We spend our time for serving living beings. We have no time to remember or call God.’ Hearing this I was thinking what to do. Then I saw that Diamond entered into the room and bowing down to the photo of Sri Ramkrishna opened the book ‘The Gospel of Sri Ramkrishna. He said to me, ‘Ask them here three questions – (I) What is Bhagavat (Book on God)? (II) Have they visualized God? (III) What is the criteria for measuring God?’ Then I came to the monk and told him, ‘I shall ask you three questions.’ The monk asked, ‘Are you a journalist?’ I said, ‘yes’. The monk asked, ‘Which journal’? I answered, ‘Manikya’ (the magazine full of articles and dreams about Jibankrishna or Diamond).
The monk couldn’t answer any of the three questions, and said, ‘I cannot answer and you need not donate anything.’ Saying this he went away and my dream was off.
[The dream indicates that special dress is insignificant for achievement of God.]
3) February, 1997.
In my dream I saw that Diamond was taking our examination in a class room. In the answer paper there were three questions and the answers should be written on it. I wrote as such.
Q (I) Was Sri Ramkrishna an accomplished man about God?
Q (II) What is beyond Samadhi?
Answer:- To see Jibankrishna (Diamond).
Q (III) What is Religion?
The dream went off.
[The dream indicates that God-the-Preceptor teaches the seer through dreams.]

From Iris Mondragon
Hello. I found this site by searching from Google. I had a dream about a week ago that left a lasting impression on me. In my dream, there were 2 or 3 close ups of the word ‘diamond.’ My dream distinctly had this word shown to me in printed format, like from a book. I don’t remember anything else from the dream, just a big close up of a black, typed word on a paper of the word “diamond.” (Lower case, courier new font and with a period).
I searched dream dictionary and Google but none of them could tell me what it meant to see a typed word. When I search through dream dictionaries, the results are always “seeing a diamond, seeing a shape of a diamond, having diamonds, losing diamonds, etc”. Then, searching the term “seeing the word diamond in my dream” on Google, mydivinedreams.com is the 10th result. I go to your website and immediately I feel so weird, I’ll explain it as an epiphany. I have recently been embracing atonement and actively pursuing a way in which I can allow my spirit to be my guide. It’s all really complicated to type everything out to you, but I’m writing you to ask if you have ever heard of anyone seeing the word diamond in their dream during their spiritual exploration. Please reply with questions or comments. I take this very serious and highly appreciate any response I receive. Thank you for your time.
I am going to narrate a very strange phenomenon happening since the early part of 20th century encircling a person known as Diamond or Jibankrishna who was born in 1893 at Howrah Town near Calcutta (now Kolkata), India.
His achievement of God-the-Preceptor in the form of Sri Ramkrishna at 12 years 4months age and thereafter having spontaneous numerous divine realizations made him visualizing ‘Atma’ or ‘Soul’ or God in the form of God’s light as described in Upanishads at 24years 8months age transforming his image into the Soul of every human being and as a result, a miraculous incident began to initiate.
Some innumerable people including men, women and children of all ages see this particular man in dream, in meditation, in trance and also in awakened condition. Nay, not only that, it so happens that whoever comes in contact with him, sees him to instruct about religion either in one or more or in all the four items.
The case is so with the Hindus, the Moslems, the Parsees and the Christians. It transpires that a man belonging to any religion of the world, if comes in contact with him, he shall be seeing him to instruct religion in one way or more in others.
The occurrences take place in the following ways :
(1) They see him those who come in contact with him.
(2) The women folks and the children after hearing about him from their husbands or any relative or any neighbor even, they see him in all the four ways as mentioned above.
(3) There are some people who without hearing about him or without seeing him, get him in dream or in trance, or in meditation or in awakened condition, even in some cases as a man alive and get instructions about religion.
(4) Furthermore, we got a report that one gentleman after coming to him declared that he saw him in this very posture some 50 years ago while he was merely a boy of 10 years old and the man who is mentioned here was 15 years old; and to add to it a good number of people, who have seen him now, saw some 30, 20, 15, 10, 7, 5 and 2 years before they come in contact with him and even in the very night before the day he came to him.
To all intents and purposes, it appears to be mysterious and a wonder. He even does not know the cause how this happens when we approach him to solve the problem he says that he does not know. The thing happens so far he knows and it transpires that he is sincere in his declaration. All these things are happening clearly and distinctly with a large number of people for the last 19 years. Otherwise it appears that the thing has its start with him when he was a boy of 15 years old and evident corroborates the fact. I am citing here a particular incident from the West which happened during the World War II, in the hard winter of December, 1939. A Frenchman, Paul Adam by name, who was a commander of the Machine Gun Division in the Maginot Line and he was overpowered with the fear of sure and imminent death due to onrush of the Germans and in the night he dreamt this Gentleman, who spoke to him “you will never die in the battle” and directed him “to come to India after the war is over.” In fact, since 9 years, this Frenchman is here in India and now a Professor of French in the Mithila Institute. This Frenchman came to this gentleman who is the Living figure of all these wonderful happening on the 11th December, 1958 and narrated the above dream to him and he recognized the gentleman.
The person who is the centre of this rare happening is a living old man leading a very simple and ordinary life of retirement and never goes anywhere out of his residence. The main striking feature is that he always teaches about religion to us in dreams, in trance, in meditation and in awakened condition as a living man in our own home. When we meet him be talks only about religion, religion, religion or God, God, God and nothing else as it transpires God first, God last and God for ever and nothing else.
Now what is the effect of seeing Jibankrishna within the body? We have witnessed and still are witnessing the following effects : (1) The seer becomes purified in mind and feeling; (2) The seer sees different sportive forms of God through dreams; (3) The seer gets Diamond as God-the-Preceptor who guides and teaches the seer on spiritualism throughout his life; (4) The seer achieves perfectness; (5) The seer grows a sense of oneness with all within himself.
The theory of attaining Godhood and its proof has been mentioned in different Upanishads in various ways.
I am now giving a paragraph below from Diamond’s English book ‘Religion and Realization’ (Foreword) so that you can know how Jibankrishna gave the meaning of ‘Diamond’ in yogic term.
Sree Sree Bhagaban Ramkrishna Devah’s perennial sayings and their tangible forms as seen in the process of transformation of the lower-self to the Supreme-Self or Bliss.
BY Diamond (Manik, the name of the diamond) picked up in the street
Manik is the most precious diamond. It is so imagined in India. It grows on the head of a cobra – the most venomous of snakes. Cobra is the insignia by which Kundalini is depicted. Kundalini is the essence of life-power. She takes the form of Cobra in the back-bone of the body in the process of Yoga – the process of transformation of the self into God. She is so seen by Sree Ramkrishna Devah. God, the most precious diamond (Manik), comes out from Kundalini and it means God in the body.
Manik can be had through sheer mercy of God and it is not a purchasable commodity.
Manik knows no value.
Now I am giving you the interpretation of your dream.
1) There is every possibility that you may see Diamond’s form in future.
2) You will have the spiritual progress by the grace of Diamond who has already become your God-the-Preceptor or the Holy Ghost and who will guide and teach you yogas henceforth. Your own Self or Atman or Great Soul shows you his sportive form through your dream. This has been mentioned in many Upanishads written Thousands of years ago. The Vedic rishis or sages have experienced it before that.
Mind that Religion is nothing but spontaneous culture of self within a human body and God is the transformed life power seen in the cerebrum or seventh plain of the human body.
If you want to know more please feel free to contact me. Then I shall send you more information besides my own website as it accommodates limited information.
With best wishes and regards,
