Chapter-11.The Sport of the Infinite-6.

Spiritual Import of Religious Festivals : 11.6.
 ( Rasa-Lila message given on the 22nd of October, 1972.)

But God's manifestations are perpetual, endless and beginningless, whether we know them, see them or not, even as the other frequencies of energy like light and sound do exist whether we are able to contact them physically or not.

As I have already mentioned, when these frequencies become more and more gross, for reasons we cannot understand, we begin to see the world and feel the forces of nature.

Likewise, God sometimes can take incarnations of a type which we can physically observe and sensorily cognise, enjoy and be benefited by.

Then, the frequency comes down to the level of our cognitions and perceptions.

Such was the case of the series of Incarnations we hear of in the scriptures – Matsya, Kurma, Varaha, Narasimha, Rama, Krishna and so on. But these are not the only Avataras of God.

Akhanda and Ananta, continuous and endless are the Avataras of God, says the Srimad Bhagavata Mahapurana.

Like the infinite rays of the sun, like the infinite drops of the ocean and like the infinite particles of space, are the infinite manifestations of God.

Notwithstanding the fact that they are infinite in their essence, they are limited in their operations and manifestations when they come to a specific frequency of revelation.

These are the visible incarnations like Christ, Buddha and Krishna and such supernormal beings, whom we call supermen, Atimanavas or Avataras.

Poojya Swami Bhoomananda Tirthaji’s Main Ashram : "Narayanashrama Tapovanam"

The word 'Ashram' (in Sanskrit) stands for an abode of learning or education. It is a pity that even after 50 years of independence; many of us are prone to associate constricted religiosity with the word and dispose of the institutions under such name as engaged in some sectarian practices. Of course, it is only a corollary of the widespread ignorance with which we often stamp our great Bharatiya (Indian) culture as 'Hindu Religion'.

More than the theoretical knowledge of different subjects, education in our country always meant man-making -- purification, fortification and transformation of personality in the holy association of the Teacher, so that the student would become fit to course victoriously through the vicissitudes of life and attain fulfillment.

And Ashrams were the institutions imparting such education. The most important factor underlying the legendary greatness of ancient Bharat was these honored seats of learning - the Ashrams - where the saintly Teacher…


Rediscover Bharatham!!! Our Father of Nation Mahatma's dream was "Ramarajya in BAharatham". The word secularism may oppose the term used 'Ramarajyam', the term means a land of TRUTH AND VALUES. The Upanishadic culture is the culture of our country. The training given to the citizens of Bharatham to live this Sanatana Dharma is called Hinduism. Bharatham is a Spiritual country. BHA means Knowledge and ratham is one who lives, hence Bharatham means a country where people are living in knowledge. Modernisation, Globalisation , our political parties, our Rulers, our system, our education, parents, new generation, media, our dress code, blind imitation of western countries and many more causes of this. Science and technology is boon for good people, where demonic citizens take advantage and exploit these benefits into criminal activities, we had experience since Atom was mis-used, now the demonic activities is continuing.
Rulers keep open their eyes and ears open and …
