ETERNAL SAYINGS OF JIBANKRISHNA OR DIAMOND

Chapter – 7
This mysterious knowledge continues for indefinite period
3rd May, 1958.
It does not carry any significance even if thousands of you see me within you, unless it spreads thought the world. And if it does not, it has no value. All these realizations in me, I discard all these. But don’t think that everything will be flooded away. All these realizations will hold you throughout your life. Vedic Rishis had termed this phenomenon as knowledge of physic or in other words knowledge of mystery. This can never be solved. It continues for indefinite period and so it remains a mystery forever.
Man is Brahma or Supreme Being
4th May, 1958.
Man is Brahma. But it does not stand if anybody utter that ‘I am Brahma’. It should manifest in a man then only it will be significant. And the proof ties when I am manifested within you as ‘Bibhu’ or ‘Paramatma’ or ‘Supreme one’. This has crossed the individualism and attained Universalism.
Innumerable people are seeing me within them. Some saw without seeing me before, some saw me after coming to me, some saw me without hearing my name. And then according to their capacity they are having divine realizations.
The only criteria is to live a simple and honest life being in constant practice of these.
Great ailment of Diamond
11th May, 1958.
If any Muslim sees me inEgyptorAlexandriaduring his prayer or any Hindu sees me within him while worshiping in a temple then this carries a weight. Otherwise this is limited to a small circle when only you in this country are seeing me within yourselves without seeing me before.
Is it my wish that people of the whole world see me within them? But is it happening? It will do according to God’s will. Otherwise it will be a self ego.
A new era is established in the spiritual world history
13th May, 1958.
I had no idea that God can be seen. I never prayed to God ‘you show me yourself’. But it is seen that God has established a completely new phenomenon here which has no reference in the world history.
Generally it is our habit to compare with a previous example whenever a new thing happens. But at least it can be said that there is no previous example of such type of phenomenon. Though it is beyond our conception what is happening here.
DIAMOND AND THE AMAZING FACTS ABOUT DREAMS AND REALITY IN HIS LIFE TIME
(Translated from my Bengali book ‘He Mahajivan’)
Volume – 10, May, 2014
My first visit to Diamond (Jibankrishna)
It was the first half of the year 1955. I cannot remember the exact date, I first went to Jibankrishna with my brother Nitya. At that time he used to live at kadamtala, Howrah. I count that day as my most blessed day and turning point of my life. So long I was sitting inside his room I was drowned in the ocean Bliss. Such type of enjoyment I never got in my life. He talked a few words with me that day. Lastly when I was going, to get up, he said, ‘Come again. You are already out. His last words confused me. All the way I went on thinking, ‘Why he told me these words ? out!’ Then I am an outsider, I will not get God’s blessings! These thoughts gave a great tension to me. That night I could not sleep with great sorrow. Early in the morning next day I went to Jibankrishna and conveyed my tension to him. He said with laughing, ‘Oh, this out means you are done. You have fulfillment in austerity. You are my own man. At that time I felt so happy! Then after bowing down to him I came out.
In that very night I had a dream. I saw that Jibankrishna was seated on his cot at Kadamtala. Reading of the Gospel of Sri Ramkrishna was going on. I entered into his room from the inside of his house through the north door, and began to listen to the reading. The dream was then off. I want to mention another remarkable dream among my numerous dreams. This dream always gives me pleasure. It was sometime in the year 1957. I saw that Jibankrishna had gone to our residence at Srirampur ( Hooghly district). There was no electric light but wiring was ready in the house. First he turned on the light by pressing switch. The whole room was flooded with light. I was overwhelmed with joy. He told me, I shall stay here with you.’ I was running here and there thinking that God has come to our house, and where to make him sit! Later on I made a sitting place for him and arranged the Hucca (A device with a cup with burning tobacco inside the cup, and fixed with a tube which is inserted inside the mouth to suck the smoke) was made. Then I rushed outside and cried ‘ Oh, everybody come here to see God. He has come. Then my dream was off.
May, 1978, Srirampur (Hooghly).
FROM MY DIARY OF DIVINE DREAM
Volume – 10, May, 2014
ACHIEVEMENT OF GODHOOD
118. 3rd May, 1976.
Early morning dream: I am scolding a familiar person as he is giving a wrong interpretation on religion. My facial appearance was completely changed, My entity seemed to be like God. Meanwhile an unknown person came and said to me, ‘You have become God, still why are you saying in this manner’? But I did not listen to this and continued to scold that person and then the dream was off.
[The dream indicates the condition of the seer that he has achieved the God hood as is confirmed by an unknown person or God Himself.]
DESTRUCTION OF OLD PREJUDICES AND INDICATION
OF NEW REALIzATIONS
119. 6th May, 1976.
Early morning dream: A very huge building was seen. I used to reside at the top floor of that building . Some people came carrying a locker for me to keep in that room. When I was going to enter the room, I felt the existence of a ghost in the room. At the first instance I became a little bit frightened, but ultimately I overcame it and entering the room began to scold the ghost to get out of the room. While scolding spontaneous uttering of the word ‘Jibankrishna’ use to occur within my body. Then the ghost gets out of the room. Here the dream is off.
[The dream indicates that all the past prejudices which are symbols of ghost are
eliminated from my mind and more and more new realizations will occur in future ]
VISION OF OTHER’S CONDITIONS AND SHOWER OF THE BLESSINGS OF HOLY GHOST
120. 7th May, 1976.
Early morning dream: I got the news that Diamond (Jibankrishna) had come again to his residence at Kadamtala, Howrah. It seemed even within the dream that the Holy Ghost appeared again after his demise. I was living in my old residence at Kadamtala (When I used to reside from 1953 to 1962 when Diamond was alive and used to reside near our house). As soon as the news came I prepared myself for going to Kadamtala.At the time of going out it seems to me—Oh! It was out of my knowledge that Diamond has come! Otherwise I would have gone earlier. However at about 5-45 p.m. I had gone out for Diamond. As after long years I was going to his place, I cannot just remember where was the exact lane, but notice that the road is blocked in front. So I again came back and as soon as came near the lane, as if somebody pull me inside the lane and put me in front of Diamond’s room. There I saw Sudhindra Nath Sinha and Indranath Mukherjee sitting inside the room . There were no other devotees. Mr. Mukherjee was reading Sri Sri Ramkrishna Kathamrita and Diamond was sitting on the floor near the door. I noticed that still then no arrangement was made for the cot and even his luggage did not reach. I was thinking that after so long years he had come, would he recognize me! But as soon as I reached the balcony and stood on the lane, Diamond exclaimed, ‘Oh! Come, come!’ Mr. Mukherjee said to Diamond indicating me, ‘He is having plenty of realizations’. Hearing this Diamond said, ‘Oh! It is quite obvious that he is having plenty of realizations. He will have more and more realizations in future—He will have more!’ Hearing this my body sparkled. At this moment I noticed that Diamond’s body became much stronger. When, standing on the lane I touched my head on the balcony, with great affection Diamond touched his hand on my head and poured his blessings upon me. Mr. Mukherjee then made me a place to sit. Both of them then had gone inside the house for some purposes. After taking Kathamrita (The Gospel of Sri Ramkrishna) I was going to start reading but failed to find out the same chapter which had so long been read by Mr. Mukherjee . Diamond said, ‘Well, let it be’. Then he started telling spiritual conditions of others. At the first instance he told me about Sudhindra Nath Sinha—‘Well , you look after Sudhin’. I informed him about his family trouble going on at present (In reality it was so). I said, ‘See, brother Abala (Mr. Abala Kanta Dutta) sometimes becomes depressed and then again becomes alright’. He said, ‘He is not supposed to be in such condition’! Then he spoke about Mr. Khagendra Nath Ghosh of Sainthia, Birbhum, ‘Once I told him to come to Calcutta, but he did not do (In reality he said to Mr.Ghosh to reside at Calcutta). I became more curious about hearing many other’s spiritual conditions from his mouth, but suddenly the dream was off.
[In this dream the spiritual conditions of some devotees are revealed to the seer by the grace of God-the-Preceptor and at the same time the blessings of the Holy Ghost pour upon the seer indicating his achievement of more and more realizations in future.]
RELIGION AND REALIZATION (EXCERPT)
By Diamond picked up in the street
Volume – 10, May, 2014
Place :—Temple of Dakshineswar .
Place—Temple of Dakshineswar .
(Henceforth Shri Ramkrishna will be spoken of as
Thakur” when required as it is so done in the Gospel )
274) “The man who has not strengthened himself with God’s power”
The man must have the manikin form of God (Manus Ratan) in him, otherwise real power of God does not come in a man.
275) “If he is a real good teacher”
It means God-the-Preceptor. God alone is good. It means Sat(Being) i.e.,Asti(Reality). This Reality appears within the human form of God-the-Preceptor. It is the appearance of the invisible God without form in the body with form. In the words of the Vedas it is marking you as His special own.
276) “A man’s ego vanishes with three signs”.
As per Tantra it needs but three stages of realizations and a man’s ego disappears and disappears for good. They are:
(i) To see God with form.
(ii) To witness the sportive forms of in the seventh plane.
(iii) Lastly to merge into the Great Cause.
As per Vedas, three signs are :—
(i) Knowledge, (ii) Knowable, (iii) Knower. [Jana—Jyayo—Jnata—the Triputi (Three in one) condition]
God-the-Preceptor is Knowledge in person; God is the Knowable Object (Ishwar Bastu Lit; God—the Object); and Knower is consciousness. It comprises and comprehends seeing of God in the seventh plane as showed by God-the-Preceptor.
277) “A man without God’s commandment cannot get
God freed from the body of his disciples.”
A man can never play the role of a preceptor—Shri Ramkrishna.
If a man accepts any other man as a preceptor then that man will never be liberated from the bondage of body. The man who was got God’s commandment will appear as God-the-Preceptor within the body of a true devotee and teaches him all the processes of transformation of the life-power into the Supreme Bliss—the whole course of Rajayoga.
278) “This human body and the egousm in the are
but the causes of bondage (Maya)”.
A man thinks himself that he is this body of flesh and blood and the egoism in him leads him to the wrong course of asserting his superiority. Maya, literally, is illusion. It is the sense the Vedantists ascribe to her. But the whole episode of the mystery of Maya is solved in the Descent in the incarnation of God (Avatarbad). But Vedanta has no Descent or the incarnation of God in it. She is identified with a woman. This Maya has got for stages. They are ‘—
(i) She exists.
(ii) She exists and does not exist both at the same time.
(iii) She is not in existence.
(iv) She is not in existence but also exists.
(i) She exists—She is real in her Universal aspect.
(ii) She exists and does not exist both at the same time—The continuous changes in the process of the transformation of life-power as seen with all her various aspects on her way till the evaporates.
(iii) She is not in existence—It is but extinction of the sense of egoism.
(iv) She is not in existence but also exists—‘I am not but Thou’ “Thou art the Master. Thou art the Lord”. But there is a tinge of ego simply to speak out the glory of “Thou”. It is real love of God (Paka Bhakti) in the Descent.
Maya, in short, is but another aspect of God in which His various sportive forms get their manifestation and display. It is Maya which induces one to thank about God and ultimately she transforms herself into God, thus revealing her own true self as God with attributes, without attributes, and also in Descent as incarnation of God or Avatar.
DIAMOND’S AFTER-DEATH SPIRITUAL ACTION THROUGH HIS BOOK
(Translated from our Bengali magazine ‘Manikya’)
Volume – 10, May, 2014
Seeing Diamond in dreams and reality after his death through Reading Centers
From Howrah Reading Centre, Mrs. Renuka Saha narrated her dream thus :
In October, 2001. I dreamt that Jibankrishna was reading his Bengali book ‘Dharma-O-Anubhuti’ sitting on a raised place. It seemed that he was feeling a bit uneasy to read. He was saying to himself, ‘I can’t read my own writing’! Beside him I was seated along with some other lady.
I saw that two small ants were moving on his cloth. I felt that the intention of the lady was to remove the ants by her hand. But I prevented her from doing so and said they would go themselves. Still she extended her hands to remove the hands. At this moment Jibankrishna told the lady, ‘Don’t touch me.’
Then Jibankrishna started walking very fast and I also followed him to the river Ganges. People were taking their bath in the Ganges water. At that time I couldn’t see Jibankrishna but saw that innumerable people were approaching towards the Ganges standing in a queue. My dream was off.
[Ant indicates the style of the movement of Kundalini from Muladhar to Sahasrar (First plane to the seventh plane of the body) to be transformed into God. This movement is slow but steady unlike other types of movement. The seer will have such type of Kundalini’s movement by the grace of God-the-Preceptor.]
From Howrah Reading Centre, Mrs. Tapati Basu has narrated her dream thus :
March 14, 1999. I saw that a huge luminous lump came and entered into the body of Sri Jibankrishna and his whole body became illuminated. My dream was off.
[The dream indicates that Jibankrishna is made of God’s light and illuminated with Supreme knowledge.]
I saw Jibankrishna in dream without seeing his photo
From Howrah Reading Centre, Mrs. Sikha Ghatak narrated her two dreams.
1) April 20, 2004. I was sick and at night before going to bed I paid my namaskar with folded hands to Sri Ramkrishna. I dreamt that night that a gentleman came and told me, you have achieved three stages and you are approaching towards ‘Brahmagyan’ (Supreme Cult)’. After my dream was off, I was not sure whether I saw Jibankrishna in my dream though saw his photo in brother Indu’s residence at a glance.
Later on when I narrated my dream to brother Arun of a Reading Centre, he showed me Jibankrishna’s photo and I became sanguine about it and realizing the grace of Sri JIbankrishna I became overwhelmed with divine joy.
2) On April 30, 2004. I was in my dream a beautiful baby with bald head. He was smiling looking at me. I had never seen such Charming smile. I was rubbing his whole body with great affection. His smile seemed to be never ending.
Later on I realized that I saw baby Jibankrishna in my dream.
[The dream showed the spiritual condition of the seer. Baby Jibankrishna indicate that the seer’s spiritual condition is at the initial stage.]
THE MANIFESTATION OF
GOD IN THE HUMAN BODY
By Debkumar Choudhury
Volume – 10, May, 2014
Let us revert to our original Sloka—Ebem Eba Esha Samprasada, Asmat Sarirat Samuthyaya, Param Jyoti Upasampadya, Swena Rupena Abhinisdyate; Sa Uttama Purusha’. So far we have discussed the 1st part of the Sloka which means—‘thus rising from the body of this marked man’. We have discussed :
Firstly, what rise from the body.
Secondly, how it rises.
Thirdly, in whose body it rises.
The answer to the first question is—life-power. The answer to the second id—through seven planes and five sheaths of the body, the process being known as Rajayoga. And, the answer to the third question is—in the body of the ‘marked man’, the mark being given by God Himself. In other words, the marked man is He whose body is a fit receptacle. His body is cent per cent fit for transformation from Manhood to Godhood. The body must be healthy, strong and pure. Even if a single fibre of the body is anyway polluted, complete transformation cannot take place.
Now, one question. How the mark is given by God? God comes down from the head, the residence of God and appears before the man in the form of a human being. He may be called ‘God the Preceptor’. It is He who teaches him the entire process of transformation. Thus, God Himself showers His blessings upon the man who gets himself transformed into God. This is giving of the mark and it is then that transformation starts.
Let us now pass on to the second part of the Sloka—‘Param Jyoti Upasampadya’—it attains the flood of light. We have discussed that in the course of the transformation, the life-power rises upwards and passes through the seven planes and the five sheaths of the body. If time permits, I will discuss afterwards what realization comes upon the man at each plane when the life power moves upwards. When the life-power comes to the cerebrum the man sees God. (God is shown by God the Preceptor already spoken of). It is a very fine realization. The seer sees an ocean of light. Everything else is absent. It is both a wonder and a bliss. Words cannot describe the grandeur. The seer gets himself absorbed in what he sees. At one side of the ocean stands God the Preceptor. He points to a thumblike appearance in the middle of the ocean of light encircled by a bluish line of light and says, “This is God” and “this is seeing of God”. Then disappears God the Preceptor. The seer also is oblivious of his own existence. There remains only that thumb like appearance in the midst of the ocean of light.
In yogic term this is known as “Tripuit”. It means that the three entities—the Knower, the Knowable and the Personified Giver of Knowledge i.e., God the preceptor are unified. The idea of “Trinity” (God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost) as incorporated in the holy Bible has, perhaps, been borrowed from this. At this stage, the ‘twenty four elements, as spoken of by Indian philosophers, practically become inactive so far as the outward world is concerned. The life-power, which is ordinarily spread all over the body, gets collected at the cerebrum and the seer gets completely transformed into God. Now, the body and God i.e., Atma become separated from each other. It is just like a sword kept in a case. The sword is inside the case; still it is separated from, the latter. Likewise, God is within the body; still, He is separated from it. The yogi now enjoys the divine bliss, the bliss of seeing God within and getting himself converted into him. The signs of enjoyment of this bliss are also evident on the face of the yogi.
Let us now pass on to the third part of the Sloka—‘Swena Rupena Abhinispadyate’ i.e,. this attainment is proved by His own form. So far we have discussed how a man attains Brahmahood i.e,. how he gets himself converted into God. You may ask me, “Well! What is the proof that he has so attained?” My friends! I am ready with proof; not proof but proofs. How many proofs you want? I can advance hundreds and lakhs; nay, innumerable proofs to substantiate my version. Vedas say—“if one attains Brahmahood or Godhood, the attainment is proved by his own form”. It means that when a man attains Brahmahood the concomitant fact is that. He is seen by thousands and thousands of men, women and children within them. It is a fact and not a theory. His living form becomes the inner self of all human beings.
