Satsanga with Brother Bhaktananda
Excerpts from a talk at 2001 Convocation
Q: There are some 6 billion humans on earth today. Where do so many souls come from?
A: There are many other souls on other planets. Our planet is one of the lowest (in terms of evolution). A lot of other souls reincarnating here have come from other planets.
Q: Did Master say that he would come back in 200 years?
A: Master said that he would come back, but he never mentioned when. He did say about his next incarnation, “I will be in the Himalayas with my disciples.” He said this many times. And he said, “In the third incarnation I will be sitting among you”, meaning he will be born in the US and come as a guru. The generations born 200 years before and after a guru’s life are blessed.
Q: How can one stay concentrated in meditation?
A: Brother found it helpful to use the word, “stay” to keep concentrated during the techniques. In your mind, feel the warm current; think “stay”, in your mind, feel the cool current, think “stay”. Master said, “Get your mind in the spine.”
Q. Am I being disloyal if I read something from Roy Eugene Davis?
A: You must decide that, but someone asked Master about one who had been in SRF and who had left the church to set up his own organization, and was giving Kriya. He asked Gurudeva, "Is the Kriya the same?" and Master replied, "No. The chain has been broken."
