1:31 Question: Is there none already born in the West of the stature of Ramakrishna?
Adano: Not yet, we are are hoping.
Question: (inaudible)
Adano: Life itself, life makes this rose possible. The vital power of the universe makes this rose possible. Yet this vital power is audible. It can be heard and it will take the shape of the human voice and communicate to us. Yogananda one time said, he was visiting with a Saint in India and while they were meditating they heard constantly the voice of God talking to the Saint, that this audible current was giving out the different levels of consciousness to him and whenever he asked a question, this audible sound was loud in the room and at that time he was not even evolved enough to even to hear it himself, but this was occurring very loud and clear around this Saint. Years after when he was able to listen to the sound within himself and hear it, it began to occur around him.

Question: But I’m not talking about materialism, I’m talking about involvement.
Adano: Well the involvement, this is what we’re talking of the involvement, is not to destroy, is to get into the whole movement. The more we are involved with it, the more we get to touch the thing and handle it and get involved, this is what we’re talking. The Eastern teachers came back to the… out of their caves to get involved with Mankind. This is what they’ve done, they’ve come out of their caves and they’re involving themselves with Mankind. You know, Jesus was an Easterner you know, He wasn’t a Westerner. Did you know that? He was born in the Middle East. So we are kind of afraid to look at the thing about spiritual teachers. All the great teachers of truth were Orientals. We are hoping that the next teacher of truth will be a Westerner. This is not to criticize, we hope that this will happen. Now when Ramakrishna was in the body, this was an Eastern teacher, he was the teacher of a man called Swami Vivekananda who was the first Indian master to come to this country at the invitation of the Parliament of Religions and before he died, his disciples asked him, “Sir, can you tell us where you will be born in your next incarnation?” And they said he looked over the Ganges from the rooftop of the house and for a long time, then he turned around and says, “I have not yet visited the West.” So Vivekananda understood what that meant that to lay the groundwork for the master again, or his master, was to come to the West and the Vivekananda Society, which is the Vedanta Society, has spread a great deal in this country and in Europe, laying the groundwork that someday those students of truth may be the fortunate parent of Ramakrishna whenever he decides to come to the West or born in the West. We will have many masters born in the West of caucasian body.

Question: You said (inaudible), but the way I understand it the Eastern religions say we should become involved in Mankind (inaudible).
Adano: Eastern religion is highly involved in Mankind. In fact there was one scientist who said, “the Easterner is more materialistic than the Westerner” because the Westerner is not materialistic, he’s spiritual, he destroys everything and hope God will replace it (laughter from audience), but the Easterner is too concerned that destroying anything he can’t afford for God to replace it. See? We pollute everything and pray to God to replace it so that’s our Western approach. Our Eastern approach, we dare not destroy anything. We dare not pollute anything because we don’t know if He gonna replace it. So who’s more materialistic?

Therefore in the pineal gland, the sound is vibrating at a level of experience at the point between the eyebrow it’s light. It’s shining in the darkness. Turning the senses in and looking in for the first time, that is what we see, the light, but it’s not the light that gets us back to God because the light is not God, the light is the image of God. It’s the sound, the actual vibratory power that is God. Through that we are drawn back up and we have to experience it. So that’s the big difference between the light and the sound.
Question: Have you had an experience (can’t be heard). I mean would you (can’t be heard) that experience?
Adano: (Adano gives Darshan) Master Jesus said, “Those who have eyes to see let them see and ears to hear let them hear.” This is my answer.
Question: (Can’t be heard)
Adano: If it’s interference there is something beyond it all and you can hear it right in this room. It’s right behind. There’s a big difference between hearing and listening, but you can hear it, the audible Life Current inside.

In Anaam Lok it is called the state of the eternal mercy. Without it there is no compassion, there is no grace and it’s in that state the unutterable Naam (sp?) or sound is made audible for man for the first time and from that state descends light, coming down like a golden rain causing creation to begin. In the first expression of creation is Beingness acting on Beingness, then the next level down is Beingness acting on Consciousness. The third level down is Consciousness acting on Consciousness. The fourth level down is Consciousness acting on Energy. The fifth level down is Energy acting on Energy. The sixth level down is Consciousness acting on Matter. The seventh level down is Energy acting on Matter and the final level down is where we are, Matter acting on Matter. Do you see where you are in creation? But Anaam Lok, the eternal mercy, is the pure cosmic audible sound. It is the God process. You call it the Logos or your call it the Amen, whatever name you want to call it, but it’s the audible Life Current. This life, Creative Intelligence, that is audible for the first time and it’s heard, not seen. The only level you can see it is when it starts to radiate down as light.

Audience: (inaudible)… interesting point that I’ve never heard before about God the creative light having a form like ours. He said that beyond light (inaudible)… he couldn’t explain it either (inaudible)… call it pure Spirit and there is something beyond that even and it really threw some of us because (inaudible)… involved with this light, we’ve got it made. It might take several lifetimes.
Adano: I said before, remember the words are very specific, “No man has seen his God, but has seen His Light.” Now I’ll tell you something else which is entirely different to what I’ve said, “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word IS God and the Word was made flesh and dwelt in Man.” That’s a big difference than the light. He did not say the light is God. “No man has seen God, but His light” and I’m saying now that the Word is God, the Audible Life Current, the Shabda or the Holy Name or Cosmic Sound, the Divine Presence is God. That is heard, not seen, big difference. One has to hear God, one may not see God, but see His light. So the sound precedes the light, but God is all music, that’s why It’s beyond the light. What is beyond the light is this cosmic sound that is responsible for the light being existing. In the highest state of awareness, Anaam Loka (sp?), where Man fully sees God as himself, there He is the eternal sound vibrating. 1:24 In Anam Lok it is called the state of the eternal mercy.

Now in terms of intimacy in that pure light, you will still have to look at a human being, which is yourself, see? God, though He is impersonal and though He is permeating you and you a human being, will hanker or yearn for intimacy, you see? So it is nothing wrong to accept the form of human being, it is not degrading you. In fact, it is extending your comprehension of yourself to see that God is recognizable in human form as a ideal way to relate. It’s unimportant if one chooses Jesus, Mohammed, or Buddha, or anyone, the important thing is all these eventually say, “I and my Father are one.” When it happened to Kabir, Kabir was a Saint who lived many years ago and He had studied all the various religions in the world at the time. He embraced them all. Finally when the final devotion came for Him to practice devotion, one day He woke up out of His meditation and shouted, “I am He! I am He!” And he ran through the marketplace shouting, “I am He!” And they all thought He was crazy. Then one priest says, “Yes, me too.” (Laughter from audience). And this is true, the final realization is the “I am He.” We’re understanding it deeper everyday that realization of God is looking at your higher self and don’t be afraid of it.

They had to have some relationship, some thing to relate to. So Moses had to come down another level. He had to meet the people at a level that they could communicate with. So he said Yehovah, the Lord. Yet it shows that even they who lived so long in captivity, could not accept Yehovah / Lord. Even when they were lead out of the captivity, they had to latch on some other form to build up devotion. While Moses was up in the mountain trying to bring down more consciousness, the people then chose a form that was obvious. They melted down all the gold and made themselves a golden calf, a form to relate to, because they so ingrained in their captivity to some form. Finally, when it was all smashed up and the forms were all destroyed, they had to face themselves. So the very first commandment is, “Thou shall have no other gods or graven image before Me.” Me who? Me, Light, the Cosmic Principle, the Creative Intelligence. So the final résumé is that when you look inside yourself as a human being devoid of every religious heritage, since some of us don’t want to be affiliated with religious heritages anymore, we want to look at ourselves as Human Beings (Adano emphasizes these words), then we have to look at ourselves in the atomic nature now for the first time. We have to accept our atomic structure. If we accept it then we will see ourselves as pure light.

You are made in the image of that light and if you look at your image, your true self is for the first time looking at yourself, then you can say without doubt, “I and my Father are one.” That is the ideal image in the end. Now the Hebrew and many Hindus start off worshipping God as Light, finally coming to the full realization and shouting to the top of their head, “I and my Father are one.” Eventually Moses had to experience that. Moses said he saw a burning bush. What is a burning bush? It’s a light. This is the only symbology they could relate. He closed his eyes and saw this light burning from here in the Arjuna center, or the third eye center, and as he saw the light inside he constantly meditated upon it. As he meditated upon that, which you call Mount Sinai, it’s the mountain here, as he looked inside within his own consciousness and the light became brighter and brighter, then he said, “Who are thee Lord? What is Your name?” And the voice came back from his own inner being saying, “I am that I am.” You and I are the one in other words, I am you and you are me. You are light and I am light. We are all light. If you are seeing this you are seeing the light. Now it’s difficult for Moses to go down and tell the people in captivity that the God name is “I am.” They would not accept that because they did not have the inner experience that their own God self was functioning in them.

Volume 3 Satsang SatGuru – 1965 – 2:01

But I never saw the Master. I meditated for years after that, I never saw Him in any other astral form. He never came to me in an astral form. He only came once. The day He died, or He left the body, I was going home and I arrived there was a telegram and I opened the telegram and I read He just passed away. Well, there I’m going to show you human recriminations. I started to swear and I kick up the floor, I says, “What a damn food I was, I should have gone and seen the man while He was in a human body. You need to see the Sat Guru in the human body. You must have human contact.” And here I’m going through exactly the rigmarole, talk of the same thing, “I should have gone, I lost… what have I gained? I’ve only got a few inner experiences and building my consciousness here.” The thing that was more important now was to see that human body. See how human form wants human form? A lion needs a bigger lion to look up to. I need to go and see. Deep down there was something still missing, I should have gone and seen. No sooner I had said that I felt my eyes close down and I heard like a huge voice say, “Who is dead? I am alive! You know it all.” Like that I knew He was lifting off karma from my mechanism like mad and I can see all these things moving in consciousness. From that day on I knew the whole course of the SRF without even looking at it and I didn’t even read the balance. The thing had worked, what I wanted most to know about. I wanted His blessings from that realm without having to go and say, “I was touching human form and satisfying human form.” I wanted to know that really, divinity was working from any level, from any time and space, it could reach out to man and touch him. In other words, I was trying to really appreciate His existence in California which I called “the podium of the church,” and Canada where I was living, “pew 93 at the back of the church.” And all of the Masters were (inaudible) above me and I’m sitting back here trying to peek through the clouds to see where the Guru is, but at last I can feel that light coming down was enough for me because this was how I had already accepted the Guru consciousness. I was no longer looking for physical form no more.
