ETERNAL SAYINGS OF JIBANKRISHNA OR DIAMOND
(Translated from my Bengali book ‘AMRITADHARA’)
Volume – 18, September, 2014
Chapter – 15
A LIVING HUMAN BEING IS INFINITE
God is All and All is God, but today I am saying that ‘one is All and All is one’ – this is a cult and manifests encircling a living human being. You have seen me within, all the people assembled here have seen me within them. So here it is established that one is All.
So far infinity has been considered as space. But here we have come to know that a living man is infinite. I am infinite, you are infinite. It is in relation to a man. This infinite means a living human being – try to keep it in your memory.
But still we can say, that so far we have not achieved it in a matured condition. It has just sprouted. To establish the truth of the religion this phenomenon has manifested here. Can you say that such phenomenon has manifested in any part of the world before? No, we do not get such reference.
REJECTION OF ‘ONE IS ALL’ AND ESTABLISHMENT OF ‘ALL IS ALL’
The outward expression of life power creates animal passion. When its inward expression creates divinity from that the causal body is formed which is transformed into the form of Atma or Soul.
This Annamaya Kosha is this physical body. Pranamaya Kosha is seen on the right side of the lower abdomen…….. For some days I have been mentioning the words ‘One is All’. But it is not right, this should be ‘All is All’.
You should consider me like the rest of you, then only the term ‘All is All’ will be established. Otherwise if we use ‘One is All’, it creates a sense of ego. Here a form of a living human being is established, as, such phenomenon should occur on the basis of a ‘point’, otherwise it will be vague. So, today, I have eliminated this term, ‘One is All’.
One thing I should tell you. Never mind that all these are happening by my wish. This occurs in a human body according to its capacity. Some many say that Paramatma is always active, so my form is acting as Parmatma. No! That is also spontaneous.
This morning I was thinking, if it does not cover the whole world, then after a few days I shall drive you out and remain in my room closing my door. Because, now it is occurring within a zone. Unless it is universal, it is nothing.
This is the information that such a strange phenomenon has happened here. Can we understand all these in such a short period? This phenomenon is neither pantheism nor self-knowledge. It is above those. Overall it can be concluded that a human being is everything and above all phenomenon – This we have understood here.
THE TRUTH IS ‘ALL IS ALL’
Vedas have mentioned that God is within this human body and to get Him within this body. It is my opinion that in the Vedic era. Rishis visualized God only and after thousands of years specific visualization of God has occurred in Sri Ramkrishna (as he said to Swami Vivekananda, ‘I swear that I have seen God’). He also said, that in the present era due to defective bodies, individualistic austerities won’t occur in anyone; in full-fledged form and not even in future. What has happened here will be the initiation of mass austerity, of course the individualistic austerity may occur in tit-bits, but not in full-fledged form. There is no necessity of it. You look at me. I have not exerted any effort for my austerity. Everything happened in me automatically. I have told you before so many times that I used to lie on my bed after taking heavy supper with meats and fried-rice and these realizations used to occur in me. Even I had no knowledge that God can be seen. For this reason I don’t take those prayers or worships. As everything happened in me spontaneously I always proceed with negations i.e., ‘I don’t want’. And for this cause I am simply Jiban Ghosh.
There is a great flaw in an individualistic austerity because if anybody says, ’This is merely a hypnotism Sir! I don’t believe in you’! So this is my desire that let the whole human race achieve the true religion i.e., oneness……..
Now I see that every human being is Brahma (Supreme Self). Everybody is the bearer of divine consciousness as Chandidas (Bengali saint and creator of some devotional lyrics in the mid centuries) said, ‘Listen my human brothers, above all things man is the truth and nothing above it’. So there is no imagination, no compromise.
From time immemorial, an eternal desire was flowing which has been manifested here. This eternal desire to be united with each other is fulfilled here. Perhaps I may not witness its ultimate effect, but I can see the fulfillment of great hunger for this oneness. Now ‘All is One’ and ‘All is All’. The truth is ‘All is All’.
THE TRUE IDEALISM
What is idealism? In Buddha’s era what was the idealism taken by followers? To become Budha. Chaitanya said, ‘Speak of Krishna’, Sri Ramkrishna said, ‘Give up woman and wealth, you will achieve God’. But could anybody take it? We have also idealism here. All the idealisms of the world so far came from outside and so these do not persist. But here it grows in the inside of a man. Even Sri Ramkrishna said, ‘If it comes from inside, then only it will serve the purpose’.
What is happening here? The soul of every human being appears within the body in the shape of a human form. In the month of November, 1957, I got an oracle, ‘The effect of your idealism will occur and will be achieved by human race’. The idealism which has occurred here is the spontaneous expression within a human body, though this includes the spiritual world. We have to wait for the effect in the material world.
DIAMOND AND THE AMAZING FACTS ABOUT DREAMS AND REALITY IN HIS LIFE TIME
(Translated from my Bengali book ‘He Mahajivan’)
Volume – 18, September, 2014
My first visit to Diamond (Jibankrishna)
Sushil Ratan Ganguly
I felt quite helpless after the expiry of my father. So I decided to take initiation from our home priest. The day was fixed on certain data in summer in the year 1956. But on the day of initiation he was absent. So I rushed to his house, but on that very day being ill he was admitted to the hospital. During this time suddenly it flashed me that my cousin brother Jitendra Nath Chatterjee used to go to a noble man. So from there I went to his house at Howrah. On that same day in the afternoon I went to Jibankrishna at Kadamtala, Howrah with brother Jiten.
At the first sight I was charmed by his affectionate welcome. After getting my introduction he told me, ‘Sit my boy, sit!’ Sitting on the floor I was listing to the reading of the Gospel of Sri Ramkrishna and his yogic interpretation.
At about 8 pm bowing down to Jibankrishna while I was coming out he said, ‘Come again my boy.’
While returning home by bus and train I was carrying with me a great divine joy and sensation which was beyond any explanation. After entering into my house I narrated my experience to everybody. Henceforth I observed one strange thing that whenever I used to go to Jibankrishna with any question the answer of that question used to be discussed there before I put my question and I got my solution.
After attending Jibankrishna for about 2-3 months my first dream was such:
1. The dead body of Jibankrishna was laid on the fire but his body was seen much brighter. At the same time his boyhood from was chanting the name of God and with clapping hands was dancing around the fire.
2. An English book of Jibankrishna was published and brother Jiten was reading that book at his residence. Then my dream was off.
I had no idea that in the year 1960 the English Forward of ‘Religion and Realization’ by diamond (Jibankrishna) was published. Hearing my dream Jibankrishna gave one copy of that book to me.
3. Sitting on my cot I was thinking about something. My father was laying beside me. Suddenly with the middle finger of his right hand he touched my forehead and said, ‘Why do you worry? Jibankrishna is always with you,’ The dream was off.
FROM MY DIARY OF DIVINE DREAM
Volume -18, September, 2014
Accompany with devotees and spiritual practices
158. 19th August – 9th September, 1976.
(a) Early morning dream: I was going towards the residence of Raghunath Sen’s residence at Taltala. After reaching there I saw a room outside and another inside unlike the reality. In the outside room Debkumar Chowdhury, a devotee was reading Sri Sri Ramkrishna Kathamrita. There I saw Arun Ghosh and many others . From there I entered the inside room which was the original one like reality. There I saw many old devotees who used to go to Jibankrishna regularly at Kadamtala, Howrah . The dream then went off.
The dream establishes the continuous spiritual practices of the seer.
(b) I was having accompaniment with two devotees named Anath Nath Mondal and Arun Mukherjee at the residence of Indranath Mukherjee at Makardah, Howrah. While having conversation with them, another devotee, named Arun Ghosh entered the room with vegetables in a bag after shopping. The dream went off.
These regular accompaniment with various devotees both in dream and reality increases the spiritual power of the seer, as said by Jibankrishna long time back.
Gaining the blessings of the Holy Ghost – Continuity of dream
159. 5th September, 1976.
Early morning dream: Within the dream it seemed to me that Jibankrishna had again come back to life after his demise and was residing at his previous residence at Kadamtala, Howrah. I was having a sense of great joy. Finishing my works very fast I started for Jibankrishna . The time was 9A.M. After reaching in front of Jibankrishna’s house, I noticed that cleaning operations were going on after Jibankrishna;s fresh arrival . Dilip Mitra was cleaning the floor with a broom . As soon as I entered the room, Jibankrishna, with a very happy mood said to me, ‘Oh, you have come! After so many years you have come!’
With my head placing on floor paid his regard to Jibankrishna and placing his hand on my head poured his blessings . After a while jokingly he said to me, ‘For so many years you have forgotten me, how do you feel now’! In the same manner i answered, ‘Now I am feeling how difficult task it is’! However, Jibankrishna was looking very strong and robust. After this nothing was remembered and the dream temporarily went off.
I again fell asleep and had this dream—This was the second day after the first day’s visit to Jibankrishna by me and this time the visit would not be temporary but permanently to stay with Jibankrishna. A bed was ready in his room. Meanwhile I noticed that my next brother Asit and eldest nephew Sanjay were present on the verandah. I thought whether I would bring them to Jibnakrishna, but instantly it came in my mind, he might be disturbed, because this was his bed time . Again it appeared in my mind, that they had come to him and this would serve the purpose. The scene changed.
In the next scene I saw Khagendra Nath Ghosh, a devotee, but this time he was without beard and moustache and was seated. Seeing him I went on thinking — Oh! Ultimately he had been here! Good grief ! Then I said to him, ‘at last you have come to us, it is good, otherwise you have gone through so much austerity. Had you not come to us , You would have some defects. Besides this in one of my previous dream Jibankrishna said to me with a great disappointment—‘I told Khagen to come to Calcutta, but he didn’t (In reality he said it long time back to Mr. Ghosh to come and settle at Calcutta
for his service, although Mr. Ghosh was already had his family at Sainthia of Birbhum District) . After this the dream ended.
Attack of animal passion
160. 7th September, 1976.
Early morning dream: In the first scene I saw myself lecturing to an unknown person about Jibankrishna continuously.
In the next scene, I saw as if I would go to a house. It seemed to be a boys’ hostel. When I started for the house, thought that I should take some milk. But somebody said, there was no necessity as plenty of milk were available there. Still I started with a glass of milk, when I covered a little bit distance, saw a clock of goats came over me. I began to drive them out with blows on them. One of them suddenly bite on my buttock. I dropped the glass and tried to get rid of the goat and with blazing sensation on my buttock I woke up.
In reality the same feeling of animal passion revealed in the dream. It was a very tough experience to tolerate this kind of feelings, but with the grace of God-the-Preceptor all these hazards are being removed.
The first scene of the dream indicates the growing power of the seer to tell anybody about Jibankrishna , although the seer has no attraction for this power.
RELIGION AND REALIZATION (EXCERPT)
By Diamond picked up in the street
Volume – 18, September, 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 )
(328) “God shines like the Sun of Knowledge. A single ray of
His illuminates the world with the light of Knowledge.
So one becomes conscious of ones own state in
comparison with others”.
God within is like the Sun of Knowledge. ‘I’ am but one of His rays and this ray appears direct from the Sun. ‘I’ and Sun have got direct connection. The sun bears and reveals the Universe. The Sun, the Universe and ‘I’ are interlinked and have got straight connection. This is not metaphor. There is no room for any kind of figure of speech here. It is seen and realized. The first one happens at the entrance to the seventh plane when the Sun is seen the Universe within God and this is ascribed as the beginning of special Knowledge about God. What is special Knowledge? What is God? He who holds the Universe within Him is God. But it is also only one aspect of God. The Universe is but a reflection in the mirror of ‘I’ .
(329) “In the dark of night the police-sergeant with a lantern
(lantern of the night-watch) in his hand goes his rounds.
No one sees his face”.
God is within you. He is witnessing every bit of your action. Nothing escapes him. But you are not conscious of it by an iota.
“The light of the lantern helps the police-sergeant to see everybody face, and all others also can see one another”
The mind of a man is in the outside. He is seeing the Universe and all else in the outside. It is God’s light enabling us to see everything but we are not aware that the light is coming from within.
(330) “Oh Sir, take pity, turn the light of Knowledge on your
own face and let me see you for once at least.”
The mind is withdrawn from the Universe and kept confined in the body. Then follows realizations of God’s sportive forms in full measure, of course, by God’s grace, then seeing of the God (Atma)in the seventh plane; it is succeeded by ‘Supreme Knowledge’; again it turns into ‘Knowledge of thou’, subsequently follows Descent as in an incarnation of God or Avatar.
Police—sergeant—represents God. If God out of His grace reveals Himself in the human body then these sportive forms of God are seen and realized. Ultimately a man becomes God and the mystery of the human life is solved.
(331) “The light of Knowledge must be kindled in the heart
“The aim of life is to see God and attain God”.
God must be collected from the body. His manifestations must be seen in the seventh plane as shown by God-the-Preceptor and lastly, He must flare up in the form of consciousness like a red flame from the stick of a Chinese red-flame match-box (Chaitanya).
The lamp of knowledge is seen the burn in the body. It is not a metaphor but really it is so seen within…….
Place—-Macedonia in Greece.
With a lantern in his hand the Greek philosopher Diogenes was seen walking in front of Alexander the Great. Alexander was very much surprised and asked, “How is it? It is day-time. But you have got a burning lamp”! Diogenes answered ; “I am seeking a Real man.” Diogenes meant to say that he is a Real Man in whom the lamp of knowledge is seen to burn in his body. He was looking for such a man of Knowledge.
DIAMOND’S AFTER-DEATH SPIRITUAL ACTION THROUGH HIS BOOK
(Translated from our Bengali magazine ‘Manikya’)
Volume – 18, September, 2014
Seeing Diamond in dreams and reality after his death through Reading Centers
Debkumar Bhattacharjee goes to Vijayananda Park for listening to the reading of Jibankrishna’s (Diamond) Bengali book ‘Dharma-O-Anubhuti’ (Religion and Realization in English version). After attending the Reading Centre he saw dreams which are as such :
1) On July 4, 2000 I saw a dream. I heard that my Religion Preceptor Sitaram Omkarnath would come to Ramkrishnapur (Howrah) to sing devotional songs. Ut going there I could not see him. I saw a man coming out from bath in the river Ganges. So I asked him about the whereabouts of Sitaram Omkarnath. He told me to go Ramkrishnapur market. Going there I saw that my Preceptor was taking rest.
Actually I wanted to ask him that fifty years ago he gave me initiation and I had no realizations. But after seeing Jibankrishna I started seeing divine drams – Why?
So inspite of other devotees’ obstruction I forceably went to him. I saw many devotees sitting there,. So without giving me any opportunity to talk anything, he called me outside and said, ‘Oh, have you have any realization? Oh, I am feeling a great joy! Listen, you have got God-the-Preceptor within you. What a satisfaction I am enjoying’! Here my dream was off.
[The dream indicates that without getting God-the-Preceptor within the body none can have spiritual realizations. Human Religious Preceptor fail to awaken the Kundalini or life power of a human being. This always happens spontaneously only by the grace of God within the body.]
2) On August 8, 2000. I saw in my dream that I had gone to a garden with one of my friend. Suddenly a large tiger came and pushed me down in a cave. But next moment the tiger with his huge paws patted me and took me out of the cave. I became surprised that I had no injuries on my body. In the meantime my friend went to call people to rescue me. Here the dream was off.
[Tiger symbolizes God-the-Preceptor. It is because, as tiger eats flesh, so God-the-Preceptor eats the ego-consciousness of a human being. Flesh is ego-consciousness.
Here the seer’s ego-consciousness will be eliminated by the grace of God-the-Preceptor.]
3) January 11, 2001, Thursday.
I saw in my dream that Jibankrishna was telling me that he was hungry and wanted me to cook something for him. So I came hurriedly to the Kitchen and he also followed –
I told him that I didn’t know how to cook. HE said, ‘No need to cook rice. Whatever I am saying to you, do that. Prepare luchi (small roundish thin disclike pasted flour) and paste flour with large amount of ghee (after-boil product of butter). Put large amount of ghee in the frying pan.
So I did that. But what about the vegetable? HE said, ‘Do one thing. Prepare Suji with sufficient quality of ghee’ (course flour). So I did that. And with a great satisfaction he ate it and gave me a portion from it. The dream was off.
[To cook means the seer will have austerity within his body. Jibankrishna is helping which means that the austerity and realizations occur within a human body by the grace of God-the-Preceptor.
Here ghee – Symbol of divine consciousness; Pan – Body; Portion of the cooked product offered to the seer – grace of God-the-Preceptor]
4) On April 15, 2003, I saw in my dream that I was going out of my residence for my office. In the meantime brother Netai (Reader of Vijayananda Park Reading Centre) came and told me, ‘Let us read the book of Jibankrishna.’ Seeing me going to office he said, ‘Let us go to your office by walking.’ After reaching there, he sat on a chair with the Gospel of Sri Ramkrishna in his hand. Then after the office hour at 5-00 PM. He took tea and said, ‘Let us walk and discuss.’ So we came like that. On our way we saw Jibankrishna. HE told brother Netai, ‘Netai, don’t leave him, don’t leave him.’ My dream was off.
[It is the instruction and grace upon the seer by God-the-Preceptor to continue practice on spiritual discussions and reading regularly.]
