ETERNAL SAYINGS OF JIBANKRISHNA OR DIAMOND
(Translated from my Bengali book ‘AMRITADHARA’)

Chapter – 31
Only God teaches Religion
June 7, 1959.
The term ‘Teaching of Religion’ is wrong. A man can never teach ‘Religion’. If God teaches, then only religion is manifested within a man. How does He teach? By appearing in a human form within a man he teaches. Is that an imaginary form? No, a form of a living human form – it is my form, and by appearing in my form what does it mean> A living human is God and you are also that God.
Every man is equal in the spiritual world
June 7, 1959.
Swamiji (Swami Vivekananda) has mentioned that according to some Vedantists the universal Supreme knowledge is the real knowledge. Here everybody is seeing my form. Everybody is equal as they are seeing my form. There is no difference between high and low here.
In the individualistic austerity there always exists an ‘ego’. But in universalism everybody is same and one. Everybody is suitable and has the birthright of acquiring that knowledge. Here this is happening.
An analysis of Vedanta doctrine
June 10, 1959
There are six doctrines on Vedanta. These are :
(1) ‘Brahma’ is Truth, the world is illusion; (2) Dream – like; (3) Void; (4) Advaitam; (5) God is everywhere, and (6) Self Knowledge (Atmagyan).
(2) ‘Brahma’ is Truth and the world is illusion – This is judiciary. What is the proof? When Brahma (Truth) is within the body, then whom will he see false or illusionary? To see everything false, one has to have false eyes, then only he will see false everywhere. Thakur (Sri Krishna) is saying (In the Gospal of Sri Ramkrishna) Sri Radha was seeing everything as Sri Ramkrishna (Hindu mythological God). But her friends were saying that they couldn’t see. Then Sri Radha was telling them – paste on your eyes the love of Collyrium, then you can see.
But this is a lower-zone state. Here you are announcing that Brahma is Truth by seeing him within your body, not I. So think what a great phenomenon you are experiencing!
(2) Brahma is dream – like – As I am living in a dreaming state, so you see me in dreams, And where are these dreams manifested? In the fourth stage of Vedanta.
(3) Void – This is a stage of individualistic austerity. These realization many of you have experienced. But there is no compromise in it, because this is not also truth as many consider it as such.
(4) Advaitam (I am identical with Brahma or God) – In Upanishads its meaning was not clearly explained, except in individualism being identical with Brahma, and ‘what is that’ is not mentioned clearly, yet we get from Upanishads a state of Eternal Peace and Eternal bliss. But during Buddhist period these were transformed into ‘Nirban’ (Void). But its whereabouts are not known to anybody. And what was the ultimate result? To commit suicide through this Nirban to get rid of sorrow and hazards and this concept was spread everywhere. How pathetic it was cannot be conceived. You eradicate all your desires through self-mortification and then you will get peace, and this concept creates the system of monarchism all over the country.
So to eradicate all these false concepts, I have named it as ‘Oneness’ or ‘Oneism’. Ney! Remove the term ‘ism’, only say ‘Oneness’ or ‘Brahmahood’. What is it? A man is many outside, but one is inside as Brahma. I am a living human being and the ‘One’ is in the form of this physical body within every human body – This is really ‘Advaitam’.
(5) Brahma is omnipresence – who is saying this? Upanishads are saying –
This is said by the individual who is seeing this and then you have to believe him. But faith is not religion. Here comes my version – Truth comes from reverse. Brahma or God is omnipresence – but it is not in everything. Every man who will announce after seeing Brahma within his body and then only all human beings will become Brahma or God with proof.
(6) Self knowledge – This is also individualistic. But I am explaining this way – seeing my form within you, you are becoming ‘One’ in the spiritual world and then giving me self knowledge and this is the reality.
DIAMOND AND THE AMAZING FACTS ABOUT DREAMS AND REALITY IN HIS LIFE TIME
(Translated from my Bengali book ‘He Mahajivan’)
Volume – 10, May, 2015
My first visit to Diamond (Jibankrishna)
Khagendra Nath Chanda
Some of my office colleagues often used to discuss about Jibankrishna. So a curiosity was grown to meet him. Within a few days the opportunity came. It might be the year 1956.
One day when I came down from the bus my companion said,”We have come to the destination.” I heard the voice of Jibankrishna. He was giving yogic interpretation of the Gospel of Sri Ramkrishna. Standing near the road I saw many people sitting on the floor were listening to his interpretation. He was seated on his cot. It was afternoon then. I liked this scene. From the cot Jibankrishna welcomed me,”Come my boy, come and sit here.” With a great affection he made me sit on his cot beside him. For the last 40 years of my life I had never heard such affectionate welcome.
After a while stopping the reading he asked me,”Have you seen any dream my boy? Such as Thakur (Sri Ramkrishna) or something else?” I said,” No, I have not seen Thakur, but I have seen Gosain.” He asked,” which gosain?” I answered,”Vijaykrishna Gosain.” He said,”Oh, it is a good dream. But come here also. Thakur said, whoever will come here he will be blessed.”
So far as I remember, I had these conversations with Jibankrishna that day. In the evening bowing down to him I said good bye to him saying “I shall again come.” On my way I went on thinking,”Oh, everybody there have seen him in dream. When shall I be fortunate to see him in dream!”
At about 12 a.m. that day I went to bed and slept. I dreamed the library room of my boyhood school. The library was well arranged with the furnitures. I was thinking,”This school building is so old but how could it possible to be converted into such nice!” I saw in the west side room of the library a batch of students and amongst them was seated Jibankrishna. Seeing me he said,”Give me a glass of water my boy!” So I gave him a glass of water from an earthern water jug kept inside the library and he drank it. In the next moment I saw myself seated in the room of Jibankrishna residence at Kadamtala, Howrah. The room was filled with the listeners. Suddenly I saw that his head was detached from his body. The colour of his head was deep red, though his head was not normal . It was in the state of Samadhi(profound meditation merged in god) and very powerful. With folded hands I was watching it. Then that face was began to blow air on my head. I felt very cool and thought myself to be very pure. Then my dream was off.
Once I left the bed. Again came back to bed I slept and dreamed that Sri Ramkrishna wearing ochre cloth and lifting his hands near his chest was standing in Samadhi state in a bush of tall grasses. Lying on my bed I was watching him. Seeing this once I shouted in my sleep, ”oh, I have seen it, I have seen it!” Then my dream was off and I woke up. I had never this idea that a dream could be so realistic and thought which was the truth whether this dream or reality! Then again I thought, going to such a person I had such realization, then who was he?
FROM MY DIARY OF DIVINE DREAM
Volume – 10, May, 2015
Chapter – 49
Opening of new cell in the cerebrum
226. 14th March, 1977. Monday.
Early morning dream: I saw in front of me a machine like a heater. I fixed the plug in it and switched on. As soon as I did it a bursting sound was heard as if a fuse had exploded. While I was waking up and it seemed as if the sound happened within the brain.
—As Jibankrishna used to explain, ‘It means that a new cell opened within the brain to start a new phase of austerity’.
Indication of austerity of descent in future
227. 16th March, 1977. Wednesday.
Early morning dream: I had gone to Baraset for my own work. After finishing the work, I was returning home by a bicycle. But at that moment it seemed to me as if I was returning from Jamshedpur. I noticed that it had no paddle. I was only seated on it and it was running in its own way. From where I got it had also no idea. It was running on a very wide flyover with a full speed. Sometimes it was automatically reducing the speed whenever any vehicle came on its way. Then I came at the crossing of Maniktala area of Kolkata and suddenly noticed that the tire became loosened. So I entered a lane for its repair and noticed that it was a lane of prostitutes. My breathing began to collapse and the body became irritated. However ultimately I crossed the lane and reached the main road and also noticed that I was on the verge of starting for my home and at that moment I woke up.
The meaning of the dream instantly appears thus—the advancement of the seer’s austerity is going on automatically. The bicycle without paddle and it moment with full force indicates that the austere of the seer is advancing with full force and spontaneously. But there might be a little bit obstacles which will also be eliminated automatically. Returning from Jamshedpur i.e., Brahmapur in the cerebrum as depicted by Jibankrishna indicates that the austere of descent will be bestowed on the seer in future.
Indication of seer’s spiritual condition by the Holy Ghost and achievement of highly developed brain faculty
228 . 18th March, 1977. Friday. Early morning dream: I noticed that many photos of a number of traditional saints and monks were hanging on the wall of a room. One of them was alike Aunkul Thakur of Deoghar. Somebody said, ‘he resembles almost Sri Jibnakrishna’. Hearing this I became irritated and thought that in future many might play frauds on Jibnakrishna. With these thoughts I went on noticing whether there was any photo of Jibankrishna on the wall. Suddenly I noticed that a very big size hand sketched picture was hanging on the wall. The picture was sketched up to neck and it had beard. Seeing this it flashed in my mind—Oh! It has no match among these photos! This is a picture of Jibankrishna—why among these photo! So I put down the picture from the wall. Then and there instead of bowing down to the photo, with a great affection I held it firmly on my cheek and while placing it on a table I was surprised to notice that the face of the picture became alive. In whichever direction I was trying to place the picture, the eyes also were moving and looking at me like a doll.
At that moment I saw my mother inside the room. At the same time Jibnakrishna in flesh and blood came out of the picture and sat on a cot. But I took this incident as a very natural case and it seemed to me that Jibankrishna was not wanting to talk to me in front of my mother. But then looking at my eyes said, ‘Bring the matter to me on Thakur (Sri Ramkrishna Deva) which you were discussing at Taltala(Kolkata, where many devotees assemble at Raghunath Sen’s residence thrice a week for spiritual discussion). It seemed to me that Jibankrishna addressed it to my mother . She also got puzzled and went out.
Then sitting beside Jibankrishna I asked, ‘Well, why many other people are not seeing you in dreams etc ?’(I meant to say about my known persons).He kept his one hand on my knees and pointing out to my body said, ‘See my boy, your body is made in one way and their bodies in another way (meaning not suitable for spiritual manifestation).
I said, ‘But before your demise you always used to say that it was for all, then why it would not manifest in all?’ (He said so in reality).But before his answering to me the dream went off.
In the dream first scene indicates that even the action of the picture of God is the same as in reality.
Another meaning came after 28 years (Oct. 2005) on the remark of Jibankrishna in reality (21st May, 1962) .He said to the devotees, ‘The Paravidya or the Supreme cult will now be manifested through brain power’(instead of the body). This has been revealed in my dream and his fixed eyes on me indicated that his grace will always be fallen on the seer. Not only that, my spiritual manifestation will also be held through brain power.
The third indication of the dream is also that my brain power is also increased to a large extent as the incidents in reality are narrated by the Holy Ghost in dream also. As because only in a very strong and non-prejudiced brain the dream and the reality becomes identical.
RELIGION AND REALIZATION (EXCERPT)
By Diamond picked up in the street
Volume – 10, May, 2015
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 )
420) “But Kaluvira was the most favourite of the ivine Mother”.
(Kaluvira was a hero in one of the epics of Bengal.)
The most favourite—means that God in Kaluvira manifested in a greater degree in comparision with other men of the era.
421) “Sreemanta was a great devotee”.
Sreemanta was also an epical hero. While Sreemanta was his way to Lanka (Now Sri Lanka), he saw that on the sea the Divine Mother was dancing on a big lotus. Sreemanta had no idea that he saw it in him in the seventh plane. He reached Lanka and met the king and promised to show him the dancing lady on the lotus. He briught the king on the sea to sea to show him the sight. But no dancing lady on the lotus was there and for this Sreemanta had to undergo a severe punishment.
Realization made by one cannot be shown to others. This is possible only in case of an Avatar like Thakur. “God is seen only through the grace of God”.——Shri Ramkrishna.
422) “There was a wood-cutter. He was a great devotee to the Divine Mother.
She appeared before the wood-cutter and gave him Her grace and love.
But the wood-cutter had nevertheless to carry on his profession of wood-
cutting and to earn his livelihood by it”.
The Supreme Cult does not bear any relationship with the ordinary course of life. The physical body, after attainment of the Supreme Cult will remain as it was before. It will feel pleasure and pain as it used to do. One must be earning his honest livelihood. It is only possible for a man without the least tinge of desire that ‘to see God is for the sake of seeing God’ and ‘to attain God is for the sake of attaining God’ only.
423) “A devotee gets the divine perfection and attributes of
Knowledge and Devotion and these never part with him”.
The Supreme Cult knows to death. In the body where it is exhibited, it rests and never leaves him. “The father has taken his own child on his shoulder.”—– Shri Ramkrishna.
Here the child has no fear to have a fall.
424) “It is full, so it does not give out any sound, as if,
It is like a pitcher filled with water”.
Pitcher—-represents human body.
There remains no sound when the life—power is transformed into God in Samadhi. A man becomes speechless.
425) “Narada and Sukdeva after attainment of Samadhi
came down up to the nack”.
Narada and Sukdeva (two ideal men of devotion and knowledge in mythology) had Chetan Samadhi in Descent.They had no control over it. It was so with them as God willed it and hence this Descent. They were not reckoned as Avatars .

Seeing Diamond in dreams and reality after his death through Reading Centers
Mrs. Suhasini Majumdar
From Beleghata Reading Center Mrs. Suhasini Majumdar has narrated her dream thus:
In the year 1664065 once I was admitted in Nil Ratan Sarkar Hospital of Kolkata. I was lying on my bed and after reading Jiban Krishna’s (Diamond) Bengali book ‘Dharma-0-Anubhuti’ (Religion and Realization in English version) for some time I slept and dreamt that the form of Jiban Krishna a sseen on the cover of the Bengali magazine ‘Manikya’ was seated near my head. The dream was then off.
[In every state of human life the grace of God-the-Preceeptor is showered on human beings.]
Mrs. Anupama Basu
From Beleghata Reading Center, Mrs. Anupama Basu has narrated her dream thus:
In the month of March, 1970, one might I saw a dream. An old building was seen. In different places of the house holes were created after breaking. The walls were also broken. I went there and sat. A beautiful married girl was seated in front of me. I could not remember what I told her. But she did not speak. In the meantime, two thin snakes came out from two holes. I was saying, ‘Had it been my houe I would have filled up the holes with earth.
At this moment, I saw that Jiban Krishna (Diamond) was standing there with a smiling face he said, ‘this house is very old. It won’t do to give a patch work, a mason will be reuired’. Then my dream was off.
[Old house indicted the old aged body of the seer. Jiban Krishna is God-thePreceptor, Mistri-God. By the grace of God-the-Preceptor the old body of the seer will be repaired by God for more spiritual realizations.]
Mrs. Umasashi Devi
From Beleghata Reading Centre, Mrs. Umasashi Devi has narrated her dream thus:
In the month of March – April, 1969, I saw in my dream that Jiban Krishna (Diamond) was telling me, Nobody reads my book in your residence and nobody comes to you. I know that you feel mental pain. I shall read the book’. Saying this he began to read his Bengali book ‘Dharma-o-Anubhuti’ (Religion and Realization), and then my dream was off.
[Through dream god-the-Preceptor given regular spiritual practice to the seer.]
DIAMOND AND DIVINE DREAM INTERPRETATION
Volume – 10, May, 2015
Seeing Jibankrishna in physical body
April 23, 1955.
Asked by Jibankrishna Nitai dutta narrated the experience of his wife.
Netai – As usual I went to take a bath in the river Ganges. At 8 A.M. I sat for my supper and my wife said, ‘See, when you went to the river, one gentleman came and was calling by your name. He had sandals on his feet and wore dhuti and loose Punjabi. I said, ‘He has gone to take bath in the Ganges, please come inside and sit in the drawing room. He will come just now.’ The gentleman said, ‘No there is no necessary to sit. You know that Netai has achieved the Supreme Knowledge. Don’t think him as an ordinary man, and tell him that the man of Kadamtala (Jibankrishna’s residential place) came to you’. Then he went away.
Jibankrishna- This proves that mothers will achieve true religion by merely sitting in their houses. They need not go to any church, temple or mosque for religion.
Meaning of drinking wine in dream
April 23, 1955
Netai Patra (To Jibankrishna) I dreamed that I had gone to our house in the village. My wife offered me a an earthen glass of juice. I went out on the road with drinking the wine. The pedestrians began to remark, ‘Why he is drinking so much wine’? Then I bought a mango and came back home. The dream was off. What is its meaning?
Jibankrishna – Juice means God’s juice. To drink wine means to eliminate ‘ego’; Mango means Amrita or Supreme knowledge.
Unknown person in dream is God
April 23, 1955.
Gobinda Ghosh (To Jibankrishna) – One unknown person was telling me, ‘You have the same Samadhi (Profound meditation merged in God) as your uncle (Arun) has. In another scene I saw that I was seated on a rickshaw and my uncle is pulling it.
Jibankrishna – In the first scene it was not Samadhi, it was awakening of kundalini. Unknown person is God. The second scene shows the right thing. Your uncle has brought you here through him your kundalini has awakened. Rikshaw means kundalini or life power.
In dream excretion means purification of body
April 30, 1955.
Kalicharan – (To Jibankrishna)- In reality we have an indigenous toilet. I was dreaming that I had gone to toilet and had so much excretion that the tub was filled up with stool.
Jibankrishna- Oh you had so much impurities within your body! All are now washed out by the grace of God. Your body and mind are now become purified.
Meaning of seeing litchi in dream
May 7, 1955.
Bhakatji (Garjan Prasad Modak) (To Jibankrishna) –Last night I saw in my dream that I had gone to my home place Buxar. There is a temple of Radhakrishna. While going to that temple I saw that a boy and girl were playing there. Seeing me they told me to sit on a cot. Sitting on the cot I was observing their playing. In the mean time a bundle of 200-250 litchis were seen on the cot. They told, ‘Eat these.’ I said, ‘Unless you give your instruction I shall not eat.’ Then both of them took the forms of Radha and Krishna. Seeing this scene I woke up with a great joy. Jibankrishna said to others that Bhakaji has achieved permanent devotion.
