ISBN 978-93-81295-13- 7

The original Malayalam text Manavarasi Innale, Innu, Naale from which this translation has been made was first published in 1981. This is a futuristic work enshrining Navajyothisree Karunakara Guru’s experiential vision of life which, we believe will impact India and the world for shaping a new world order marked by peace and social justice. The book has had several subsequent impressions and it was translated into English as A Dialogue on the Human Prospect (its form is that of discourse between Guru and Disciple) and published ten years later in 1991.

It was reprinted twice and this is the second (revised) edition. There were included in the later edition’s original Malayalam text after the translation was first published. A glossary has been prepared for the sake of the uninitiated but serious reader. The words were selected by Guru’s Mexican disciple Mr. Carlos Guzman especially from the point of view of the European readers who may not be familiar with Indian, and Malayali terms.

More InfoThe Riddle of Manu, Manvantara Avatars and World Teacher Prophesies

The book highlights the concept of Indian sages about the origin of the universe. There are conceptual differences about the origin of the universe in the Hindu philosophical tradition. While the monotheistic Rishi tradition or Jnana tradition attributes the origin of the universe to Manu, the First Born of God, the polytheistic tradition or Puranic tradition considers Brahma as the Creator. There are yet various other sects in the Puranic tradition that hold Vishnu, Siva, Surya, Ganapati, Devi or Krishna as the Creator of the universe, not Brahma. According to the Sankhya philosophy, the origin of the universe is from Purusha and Prakriti. The Vedantic philosophy also does not accept the concept of creation by the Trimurti gods. According to Vedanta, the universe is only a mirage, created by the illusion of an individual soul.

Here lies the great divide or spiritual disunity in the Indian spiritual tradition. The primal human archetype or the First Born of God in cosmic terms is mentioned by various names such as Virat Purusha, Hiranya Garbha, Isvara etc. in the Vedas and Upanishads. This Virat Purusha is identical with Manu, the archetype of the human universe. This Manu is not the author of Manu Smriti, the dharmic code of Hindus, with the same name. The Indian time calculation is in the terms of Manvantara, which has come to be known so after the name of Manu. However, the Puranic tradition has attributed creation, sustenance and destruction of the universe to Brahma, Vishnu and Siva, sidelining the concept of Manu and the lineage of sages (gurus) appearing in every yuga for the spiritual guidance of mankind. The records about Manu are missing from the scriptures.

The spiritual order of Manu like that of Adamic religion is based on the concept of One God. Between the Almighty God and humanity, there is only one medium, His messengers, the sages and seers, gurus and prophets. However, the Trimurti tradition or popular Hinduism identifies itself with the teachings in the Puranas and Vedas that extol the supremacy of gods and worship of deities through mantra and tantra and a division of human society into four hierarchical caste groups in which the Brahmin is superior to all others. The development of the Trimurti system in place of Manu is an intriguing subject, which forms part of the most important revelation made by Navajyothisree Karunakara Guru. The book also examines the life and teachings of Navajyothisree Karunakara Guru in the light of a series of prophesies regarding a divine incarnation purporting to our age. The book is a valuable re-interpretation of Sanatana Dharma, the causes of its degradation and the hope for its bright future.

More InfoRam and the Titans of Treta Yuga

Publisher - Universal Culture Trust

The story of Ram is the story of our civilization. It is said that the manifestation of Ram was in Treta Yuga, more than eight lakh years ago, an age, which is completely obscure to modern history. However, from many millenniums, the saga of Ram has spiritually inspired and illumined the minds of Indians as well as other peoples in different parts of the world. Sri Ram was the spiritual authority of Treta Yuga who was succeeded by Sri Krishna in the Dwapara Yuga. In Kali Yuga, the present age, we are informed that another manifestation of God is destined to guide humanity, about which there are prophesies in different religious traditions. For example, there are the prophesies about a divine incarnation known as Maitreya Buddha in Buddhism, the Son of Man in Christianity, the Messiah in Judaism and Mahdi Imam in Islam among others.

The succession of Godly incarnations in every Yuga is related to the concept of Yuga Dharma. In every Yuga, unique spiritual authorities guide humanity in its spiritual progression. According to the esoteric teachings in Hinduism, four Supreme Gurus or Axial Preceptors manifest in a Yuga that consists of several millions of years. The present Kali Yuga, which has a length of 4,32,000 years, commenced after the death of Sri Krishna at the end of Dwapara Yuga about 5200 years ago. This means that we are only in the dawn of Kaliyuga. Therefore, the prophesies about a divine incarnation during this age is significant. An Axial Guru would incarnate at the commencement of a new age in order to fulfill the Yuga requirement. There would be gurus and prophets under the Axial Guru for the durations of 500, 1000, 2000, 2500, 3000 or 5000 years. Therefore, Hinduism does not accept the finality of any prophet or sage in the long age-cycles of a Manvantara, the universal scheme of evolution. India’s spiritual progression was arrested because it is yet to awaken to the truth of Yuga Dharma that envisages a sagely path to God realization in contrast to the priestly tradition with its caste prohibitions, rituals and mode of worship contrary to the transparent jnana tradition, rooted in the universal spiritual teachings of the Upanishadic rishis. The biggest challenge before Hinduism is to identify the true soul of its spirituality.

Despite the darts, lashes and trampling it suffered over the centuries and its spiritual deviation, the unconquerable spiritual fort of India is still alert to the teachings of the ancient sages and their assurance that in every age and at every turn of its crucial history, it will be protected and guided by their soul effulgence. The spiritual age of Ram may have been over, but not his spirituality, which aimed at the tranquility of man and his spiritual evolution. The spiritual stream of Ram continues to flow through the soil of India, through Krishna, Buddha and other divine incarnations at every turn of its history. The teaching of Ram has to be sifted for the dirt of the ages, the falsities and interpolations, which occurred in the long passage of time, and actualized in the canvas of the new age through newer Masters ordained by the Will of God.

The awareness to accept Guru should be received initially from one’s mother. Whatever shortcomings are there in us by birth, through the virtue of mother half of them will go away. The mother should know the habits of her children. Such a mother only should bring up the child. Her loving look and also the seriousness - these should be filled in a mother. The child cannot forsake the mother because of the love. At the same time her profound manners will generate fear and devotion in the child. The most important thing is to cultivate such a mother. It is also the most difficult job. The mother who hides the father, if she brings up the child, the child will not become good.

More InfoGRIHASTHASRAMIGAL SOOKSHIKENDA DHARMAM

We have the old worship tradition of making some offerings to God in order to fulfill our desires. It is not for such selfish fulfillment we should worship God, but for His grace. What should be done for receiving the grace of God? We should act with a sense of duty and awareness. Because we have not acted in that manner for a longtime, error has happened in the way of our worship. The life of a householder would become fruitful only when life is founded on a strong spiritual awareness.
