Who is Babaji?
Babaji is a great master of yoga living today in the Himalayas who is sometimes called Kriya Babaji Nagaraj, Mahavatar Babaji or Shiva Baba. His body has not aged since the age of sixteen when he conquered death and attained a supreme state of enlightenment.
During the past forty years, several books, beginning with the Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda, written in 1946, have referred to the great spiritual master, Babaji, who for centuries has lived in the Himalayan mountains, appearing occasionally to a fortunate few. Sri Yukteswar, Yogananda's guru, said that Babaji's attainment was so great that it could not even be conceived of (Yogananda, 1969, p.305). Yogananda has stated that Babaji is a "Maha avatara", or great avatara (Yogananda, 1969, p. 305 306). "Avatara" is a Sanskrit word which means "descent" or incarnation of the Godhead in human form. He also characterized “siddhars" as having attained mastery over death.
Through such great manifestations, God then works silently on the gross physical plane, assisting all those who seek to evolve to the higher life. Babaji, since attaining this state, has made it his mission to assist suffering humanity in their quest for God realization. Usually, he has done so anonymously. Those helped by him generally do not know the source of assistance. Babaji's mission has included the assistance of prophets (Yogananda, 1969, p.306). In the case of a few great souls, namely, Adi Shankaracharya, Kabir, Lahiri Mahasaya, Yogi S.A.A. Ramaiah and V.T. Neelakantan, Babaji Himself has appeared and given them initiation.
He has promised to remain in his physical body, always visible to a few persons in this physical world (Yogananda, 1969, p. 312).
Babaji indicated to Lahiri Mahasaya that Kriya Yoga was taught by Krishna to Arjuna, and that Patanjali and Jesus Christ knew of it, and that it was taught to St. John, St. Paul and other disciples (Yogananda, 1969, p. 244 245).
"Kriya yoga is a simple, psychophysiological method by which human blood is decarbonated and recharged with oxygen. The atoms of this extra oxygen are transmuted into life current to rejuvenate the brain and spinal centers. By stopping the accumulation of venous blood, the yogi is able to lessen or prevent the decay of tissues. This advanced yogi transmutes his cells into energy. Elijah, Jesus, Kabir and other Prophets were past masters in the use of kriya or a similar technique, by which they caused their bodies to materialize and dematerialize at will."
From Paramahansa Yogananda's Autobiography of a Yogi,Chapter 26
During each meditation, which eventually will stretch into one's consciousness 24 hours a day, even during busy schedules, one will still withdraw consciousness and energy from the outer world. As Jesus says, "Be in the world but not of the world." This is a personal ongoing experience to work towards.
When the entire five senses, the minds and emotions, and all things outer and ego are surrendered, only then will one be in the Silence, the Emptiness, the Void, the Perfect Stillness, where only the Voice of Universal Spirit, God can be heard in the Inner Third Ear and in the Christ Heart. This Voice is the Sound of AUM, resounding throughout all time and space, now that the Kriya Yogi is one with the Universe. This is the Voice of All Creation. Allow your personal intention and Diamond Heart to be filled with this. This will enable you to link your will with God's. To fill yourself with an Infinite amount of Christ Spirit Energy. To fulfill all God's gifts within you for painting, sculpting, writing, gardening, loving all creatures- and for Self-Realization.
THE GOAL OF LIFE THROUGH KRIYA YOGA IS TO WITNESS THE DEPTHS OF GOD'S LOVING, ECSTATIC PRESENCE IN EVERY MOMENT, WHETHER ONE IS BREATHING OR NOT, WHETHER ONE IS IN THE PHYSICAL FORM OR NOT. FOR LIFE IS ETERNAL, THE SOUL IS IMMORTAL. BEING ONE WITH THE PRESENCE OF GOD EACH NANOSECOND REUNITES THE HIGHEST SOUL WITH THE GOD SOURCE, THE ORIGIN LIGHT OF ALL AND EVERYTHING IN THE UNIVERSE.
When you die to ego, the illusionary world, fame, fortune, material possessions and dependent relationships in each nanosecond, then you have attained Self-Mastery. You have regenerated and regained your Immortal Soul Light, the Wisdom, Laughter and Playful Dynamic Ecstasy of Being Ever-Expanding, Infinite Amounts of Highest, Most Compassional Pure Love.
