“Futuristic Visions” Part 2
Jayananda Thakur vol 3
“Dear Jayananda, I have many questions for you, and so I beseech for you to accept me, and be my siksa guru, my eternal siksa guru. I cannot leave this material world without your help.”
Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakur has explained that we should gradually approach a level of bhakti whereby we may practice bhakti in both our sadhaka-rupa and siddha-rupa. What is sadhaka-rupa and siddha-rupa? Sadhaka-rupa is our devotee form here on planet Earth, and Siddha-rupa is our spiritual form ... we will talk more about this later.
“Yes,” said Jayananda, “I came to you in your dream, that was my spiritual form, I came to you in dream, in my siddha-rupa, but you saw me in my sadhaka-rupa. my Earthly devotee form, otherwise, it would be difficult for you tell the story to others.
“One time in trance, I saw you in your siddha-rupa, dear Jayananda, I shall say no more, who will believe me?”
“Besides all the formalities, I just want to be with you, I have gone without your association for way too long. So let us be siksa guru and disciple.”
“And friends also,” said Jayananda, “I will never forget the sweet friendship we had, when we were god brothers, on planet Earth.”
“Before we continue,” Jayananda continued, “it is important to explain this complex situation, something very difficult for people to comprehend, which is; “how am I talking to you? How are you talking to me?”
“You are so right ... readers may think that I have gone cuckoo, that I am making this all up ... this is some concocted fictitious story, conjured up in a fertile brain, they will think that I am delusional,
“But I am no more delusional than the South India Brahmin who cooked sweet rice for Krsna in his mind and burnt his finger.”
I want Jayananda’s association, I want powerful spiritual guides, and Jayananda and Srila Prabhupada have so kindly given me shelter under their lotus feet, and so I approach Jayananda as siksa guru, to whom I can pose inquiry’s, and who will give me answers.
“I read this writing about Jayananda Thakur and the idea of channeling with him, Prabhu, it is just what happens with the departed great souls, you can make questions and they answer. You can come to the point of talking to one of the acharya in the Parampara and get direct instructions. It is the revelation of our connection that Prabhupada activated for us if we just follow the sadhana of very simple daily and constant devotional acts. Bhakti appears in the exchanges with Krishna, and also, with his very dear devotees, as we know how dear was Jayananda Thakur to Krishna.” -MadhavaLata dd
Srila Prabhupada said we can talk with Krishna, and He will exchange conversation.
“You must be fit to talk with him. Similarly, Krsna is ready to talk with you. He has come. He has descended in arca-murti to talk with you, to be visible by you. Now you make yourself ready and fit to talk with Krsna. Then He will exchange conversation. Santah sadaiva hrdayesu vilokayanti. This is possible. This is a qualification.” Srila Prabhupada, Srimad-Bhagavatam 3.25.35 Bombay, December 4, 1974
Well, I am not so fit, to talk with Krishna, but ,,, save that thought for later.... :))
