Letter from Mahavatar Babaji: Our Homing Beacon

Mahavatar Babaji
Oh, I will do that chore after I do this or that,” we say when the time comes to do a chore which we have been postponing, or that we do not particularly want to do. Why is this, do you think? It is avoidance of our duty, plain and simple. We need to face ourselves as we are in this modern age when the world-at-large indulges itself and its whims to the maximum. You, who have Swami Vishwananda for your teacher, your Satguru, may look at his life and how He lives each day for your example as one who takes the emulation of Divine Laws of Lord Vishnu into His own life circumstances and employs the Divine command to obey God and dharmaic duty.

When you run away from your duty, your life becomes uneasy, fragile and fragmented in the mind and actions. Peace flies out the window of opportunity the Lord has given to each individual in life. What to do when you find yourself in the situation of shirking your dharmaic duty? It is simple, my children, go within and meditate and locate this seed crystal of dharmaic duty, which was given at birth, and let it shine outward into your life in all that you are and in all that you do each day from this day forward. You each have a Divine Plan for your life. Swami Vishwananda knows his plan and he implements it each day, come what may. Take his example and follow it; follow your teacher, for He knows the way from many lifetimes on Earth doing the Will of the Father-Mother God, Lord Narayana-Vishnu, The Divine Mother Lakshmi—One!
Do you wish to have this power inside yourself brought forward to be expressed from your inside world to your outside world? It is simple to do it, but many would say: “Oh, Swami Vishwananda has more power than we do.” I assure you that is a misperception of Divine Law, for we all are equal in the eyes of the Divine! Swami Vishwananda has remembered who he is, where he came from and where he is going—the eternal questions of mankind. It has been said that all questions reside within these three. It is true that if you will locate the answers to these from within your heart, you will remember your Divine Self exactly as Swami Vishwananda has attained in your perception, and precisely as he teaches you. Notice he does not keep it secret how he came to be an Enlightened Master; he shows you by his life lived in alignment with Divine Law! Why? It is because his very essence wills that he teach you the way to become that which you are as a light projection into physical form, an enlightened being, you, your Self!

In the Bhagavad Gita, responding to Arjuna's confusion and moral dilemma about fighting his own cousins, Lord Krishna explains to Arjuna his duties. ” It is better to do thine own duty, however lacking in merit, than to do that of another, even though efficiently. [Babaji references this “do the duty of another” as when we emulate "the other" as being “the world-at-large” in our modern day]. It is better to die doing one's own duty, for to do the duty of another is fraught with danger." –Krishna: Bhagavad Gita

"Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons. (does not show favoritism). Bible—American King James

What does this mean? It means that all are equal in the sight of the Lord. You have the same Divine Love within you that Swami Vishwananda has been demonstrating day, by day, by day all over this world of ours. Take Him to your heart of hearts and live the example He is showing you with his own life energy spent each day in your behalf. He is the Satguru who will take many of you home. If you wish to be one of these, do your duty each day as your teacher demonstrates.

I am Babaji, one who stands with you on Earth in this day and this time to guide you home. I serve as your homing beacon, like the lighthouse for the sailor, Garuda for Vishnu and the ever-loving grace of the Divine, who sheds His Love and Grace on all alike, even as the sun shines on the enlightened and unenlightened equally. Come Home; it is time. –Mahavatar Babaji
