'Lord Krishna will take birth to destroy evil'

I am still a child and I am being brought up by all of you (devotees). You are all therefore my protectors and my parents. All of you are taking good care of this child very much like how a mother looks after her baby. A child has been born (Swamiji is referring to himself) to take care of worldly karmas. Three Mahatmas have taken birth in three different directions to establish Dharma. (Swamiji was perhaps referring to Sathya Sai Baba, Mata Amritanandamayi and himself?). Lord Krishna has declared in the sacred Bhagavad Gita that He will take birth again and again to protect dharma and destroy evil. You should all grow with me.”

“Currently, I am still a child. As I grow, I will experience several bhavas (moods). All these months I was in the kurma (tortoise) bhava. This year (2009) I will change into the narasimha bhava (mood of a man-lion) and I will display a lion-like temperament (quick to anger, of fierce aspect, immediate dispensation of justice, quick to redress grievances, impose rewards and punishments, etc.). As avatars emerge and grow, so do the people who look after them. All of you belong to this category. You have come to take care of me and look after Me. That is the love that each one of you has for me.”

“When I am in each of these (bhavas), you should also develop the strength to nurture similar qualities. These (bhavas) are subject to continuous change. If I am in the (Narasimha bhava), you cannot have a bhava of a goat or mouse! In this case, the lion will eat you up! A lion should be met and engaged only by a lion. You should have the same qualities. I am looking after all of you. You will notice even more changes after 2011 in this respect. We have to perform many yagnams (sacrificial rituals) and this was the reason that several (yagnams) were performed last year. At that time, I was in yagnamurthy bhava! Currently, I am moving from the (kurma bhava) to (narasimha bhava). “I am close to lire and I play with fire all the time. Agni is one of the five elements. In a few years, you will be able to see my images in the sun! You will witness many wonderful miracles in the coming years! Know this to be the truth! God is omnipresent. He is present both in the pillar and in the rust that covers it! We must learn to discover that Truth. Lord Vishnu was present even in the pillar. Likewise, I am present everywhere. A number of mahayagnams are planned at the end of 2009 and early 2010 in Sreekrishnapuram.”

“We must develop our faith in the Sadguru to take care of all the challenges we face in our lives. This is a period when the grandfather is handing over charge to his grandson. You will all understand this process in the year 2012. I will reveal these details when the time is appropriate. If a deer walks with a lion, he also acquires the gait of a lion. Similarly, all of you should learn to walk like a lion. If your Guru is a lion, you should also be like Him. Otherwise, some of the lions who are with me will catch you and eat you up! You should be absorbed in the same (bhava) that I am absorbed. You should be able to talk to people and teach them the path to spirituality. All of you are teachers and I am the headmaster.”

“The Om Sharavanabhava Matham is a school and the devotees are its children. So share your experiences with others about bhakti and conduct satsangs. Inform people about your experiences with the Sadguru. Every Ashram will then become a temple. Be happy with what you have. We should not entertain desires about the way the world should move or behave. The world will not move according to your dictates. Only Nature can guide the universe and permit what is to happen to happen and prevent what does not happen. We are all creatures of Nature. We are here today and tomorrow we will be in some other place. We cannot predict what will happen. This is the nature of worldly existence.”
