The purpose of of Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 14-18 and the Bhagavad Purana 11.25.2–5)this booklet is to answer this question. These transcendental qualities of the Absolute (and of our own Sattva Dham in our heart) can be ONLY discovered in the theistic trinitarian world view of the 3 Gunas and NOT! in the dualistic, monistic or nihilis- tic YinYang world view of the Mayavadis. We have to study this theistic perspec- tive of the Yoga-Psychology and the timless, universall and natural scale of ethics of the three Gunas. This positive orientation, knowledge and virtue will raise us in our spiritual / ethical evolution towardsSince God is good, from God only comes the good and the good comes our true and connected self.only from God, our contact, connection and interaction with exploitative pas- This knowledge is supported in a San-sion (Raja Guna = red, on the right) and destructive ignorance (Tama Guna = skrit-verse in the Bhagavad Purana (SBblue, left) is only possible if we build a wall of impersonalism (Mayavad) 12.8.46 and Satsandarba of Jiva Goswami):against the Source of the All-good (Vishuddha Sattva = yellow, on the top). “The place of fearlessness and spiritual happiness can be reached by pure virtue (Sattvam = Divine healing energy).

  • 3. So Then, What Are Mayavad-Tendencies? By the teachings of His Divine Grace Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur Prabhupada our Mayavad-tendencies ie our wall of impersonalism (Mayavada) against the healing source of the All-good will vanish and theFor example Kabbalah with its dualistic world view is Mayavad because healing of body, mind and soul will take place and real transformative Perfec-it says evil is a part of God: "God has two sides; both are essentially one tion will be achieved.thing; what we experience as evil is as Divine as what we experience asgood.

The MahamantraMayavadi from India says (no need to mention his name): "Sattva is the was Number 1 in the top charts. Then the Gaudia Vaisnvas where weakenedpious quality of Maya (Illusion) that generates all the desirable characteristics by divide and conquer. “Divide et impera” is a combination of political, military,in the mind, like goodness, generosity, humbleness, forgiveness, kindness, economic or even philosophical strategy of gaining and maintaining power byrespect, alertness, etc." breaking up larger concentrations of power into chunks that individually have less power than the one implementing the strategy ... and so the Kabbalists have won a battle …The Verse SB 12.8.46 means: The divine Sattvic characteristics of theAbsolute are spiritual (and pure) and they are shining directly into ourmaterial world (where they mix with Raja and Tama). For example: The What Is Now The Remedy?beauty of a flower is a divine energy and its emergence and decay is causedby the material energies. Once a Mayavadi from Switzerland said: “Also We have to come under the authority of the source of the good. Back toSattva-Guna is demoniac!” The right theistic understanding would be: The the roots and to the absorbtion of the Ray Of Vishnu!

Like this we become jewels reflecting the transcendentaldivine Vishuddha-Sattva-qualities of the Absolute! This understanding andthe faith in the transcendental qualities of our own spiritual nature is the be-ginning of our spiritual life and then we start to see our body and mind as atransformable tool which we can enlighten for our own spiritual progress.This is totally opposite to what for example this Mayavadi said: “If onegives to the state of health in the least preference relative to the state of thedisease, it is already projecting us thereinto in the outer duality of material His Divine Grace Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur Prabhupadaexistance.” God’s energies have a healing effect and the healing waves (February 6, 1874 to January 1, 1937 and perceptible to the very present ...)of the All-good are all around us at any time, we just have to be aware Param- / Adi-Founder-Acharia of the international society for Krishna con-of them and invoke them, we open ourself, tune in and absorb them! sciousness. 5 6
  • 4. Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur Prabhupada was a preacher ofGaudiya Vaishnavism throughout India in the late nineteenth and early twenti-eth century. He was born as Bimal Prasad Dutta in the seaside pilgrimagetown of Jagannath Puri, Orissa, India. His father, the Vaishnava scholar SriKedarnath Dutta, later known as Bhaktivinoda Thakur, was a Deputy Magis-trate in the Government of Bengal, a Gaudiya Vaishnava Theologian and thefirst to present the teachings of Chaitanyite Vaishnavism to the English speak-ing world. Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur Prabhupada was also the spiri- tual master of world renowned (left to right): Srila Bhakti Raksaka Sridhara Deva Goswami, Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, Srila Bhakti Prajnana Kesava Gosvami Maharaja, who is himself the spiritual master of Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gos- vami Maharaja.(who is the spiritual master of the compiler of this humble offering in form of this booklet / website). Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada especially commented on Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura Prabhupadas powerful preaching against caste-ism, Sahajiyas (superficial understanding) and Mayavadis (nihilists), and on how effective he was at debunking these strongly rooted influences in Indian (and now worldwide) cultural and religious traditions: "This was practically one of his most important contributions, coupled Srila Bhaktisiddhanta with his constant axe blows against the impersonalists and voidists.

  • 5. The Theistic Solution The Bhagavad Gita is very scientific and not confined to local, temporary religion. Besides the described timeless and universal laws of reincarnation, the karmic radius of free will, the transcendental nature of the spiritual soul inSrila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur Prabhupadas inspiration, the every living entity, it’s natural but covered eternal possession of love of GodBhagavad Gita rejects "the Mayavadi-dictatorship of relativism" which (Sanathan-Dharma), this book shows us also the orientation oft the naturalgoverns today’s ethical values of the elite, education and mass-medias by scale of ethics of the three Gunas which leads us to our own Sattva-Dham indevoting three chapters to the philosophy of the three Gunas, which propa- our heart. This trinitarian, non-dual world view of the Gunas is now thegates a timeless, natural and universal applicable scale of ethics. true world-ethos and it is the spiritual foundation of human society.But the Bhagavad Gita (literally: the song of God) is a mystery and without Interestingly enough most people follow the ethical patterns of the threeproper guidance it can be very confusing.

The reason for this is that when God writes son, regardless of his or her cultural or religious background. This is easilya book (or sings a book); he doesnt like to overpower the free will of man- explained because the Gunas have their origin in the matrix of the threekind. The freedom of choice is still ours: Theists consider Sattva as the modes (or the three phases) of all material objects around us: Emergence,charcteristics of God, since God is helping, loving and healing. Mayavadis see existence and decay, and thus in the psychological basic factors / activities:Sattva as a material illusion and don’t belive in its ultimate healing power. Creating (Raja-Guna = red),Then what is Sattva-Guna? In the Bhagavad Gita we find: "O sinless one, Maintaining (Sattva-Guna = yellow), andthe mode of goodness, being purer than the others, is illuminating, and it frees Destroying (Tama-Guna = blue).one from all sinful reactions. Those situated in that mode develop knowledge,but they become conditioned by the concept of happiness." (Bg. 14.6)What does that mean? Does Sattva liberate us now or does it condi-tion us in the same time? We understand this better when we know thatthe Gunas are always mixed and a person in Sattva-Guna is in a mixture offor example 90% Sattva, 6% Raja and 4% Tama. So that what conditionsthe person is not the 90% Sattva - it is the 6% Raja and 4% Tama.In the purport to Bg. 14.6 by Bhaktivedanta Swami we find: “The diffi-culty here is that when a living entity is situated in the mode of goodness,he becomes conditioned to feel that he is advanced in knowledge and isbetter than others. In this way he becomes conditioned. The best examplesare the scientist and philosopher: each is very proud of his knowledge, and There are around twenty synonyms necessary for each Guna to understandbecause they generally improve their living conditions, they feel a sort of them entirely, since our language has no such umbrella terms (listed on pagematerial happiness. This sense of advanced happiness in conditioned life 20).The Gunas do not overwrite our karmic radius of free will. When we raisemakes them bound by the mode of goodness of material nature." What is in the matrix it will expand and when we sink it will contract. As a sailing shippride? Is it Sattva? No as we know pride is Raja – so it is the 6% Raja in the spiritual soul can cruise up against the adverse tamasic and rajasic windsthe Sattva-Guna in the example above what conditions the person and and choose its destiny and tune in into the characteristics of the Absolute.never Sattva as we know from SB 12.6.46 (as mentioned before).

A strong sense of love is required here. If we have a strong sense of love for the Om -- the Complete Whole; purnam -- perfectly complete; adah -- that; pur- Supreme Lord, then we can discharge our duty and at the same time remem- nam -- perfectly complete; idam -- this phenomenal world; purnat -- from the ber Him.” The Absolute is much more creative and humorous than we all-perfect; purnam -- complete unit; udacyate -- is produced; purnasya -- of normally think. Can you imagine a God who performs a graduation-dancing- the Complete Whole; purnam -- completely, all; adaya -- having been taken party (Rasa-Lila) with the souls who just made it out of the cycle of birth andaway; purnam -- the complete balance; eva -- even; avasisyate -- is remaining. death? That is the humorous aspect of Absolute: Sri Krishna is dancing with Srimati Radharani and Her expansions (without Raja-Guna / Lust, just love): The Personality of Godhead is perfect and complete. Whatever is pro- duced of the Complete Whole is also complete in itself. Because He isthe Complete Whole, even though so many complete units emanate from Him, He remains the complete balance. If the Absolute is to be absolute, then it must contain everything that is found in all its parts.This Verse means that the Absolute has beside its impersonal aspectalso a personal, loving, helping and healing aspect: And a feminine nurs-ing aspect which helps us out of the cycle of birth and death, and sends us thetransformative divine healing power (healing current or in German: Heilstrom). And from this perspective the Christian Trinity would look like this: So we see: It is for our spiritual progress not helpful to deny the per-sonal helping aspect of the Absolute: God is good, from God only comesthe good and the good comes only from God, and since the Absolute is all- good, our contact and connection with exploitative passion and destructive ignorance is slashed by the mercy of the All-good. Youve the choice!The impersonal aspect of the Absolute (Advaita-monism), the Brahmandoes not care for us at all, since it is impersonal. And the second aspect of theAbsolute Paramatma is just a little more personal, but as neutral as the clerkin a bank counter (counting your money). Paramatma is the operating systemof this world and is the Karma-accountant. Only when Paramatma in yourheart transforms by your wish into the third aspect of the Absolute Bhagavanthen a loving, helping truly healing relationship begins to take place and yourheart shows it true feature of Sattva Dham! (See Bhagavad Purana 1.2.11) * Is and Is Not: Achintya-Bheda-Abheda-Tattva … 11 12
  • 7. Achintya-Bheda-Abheda-Tattva is a school of Vedanta representing thephilosophy of inconceivable oneness and difference, in relation to the crea-tion and the creator, as well as between God and his energies (us) withinthe Gaudiya Vaishnava religious tradition. In Sanskrit achintya means in-conceivable, bheda translates as difference, and abheda translates asoneness. This philosophy (Tattva) was taught by the movements theologi-cal founder Chaitanya Mahaprabhu (1486 - 1534). And this leads to our next thesis:Jesus Christos is the son of Christos. Christos means the liberator i.e.savior and that is akin to the Sanskrit word Krishna = the all-attractive,which is quite a true name of God. Radha is in accordance with Indian San-skrit texts, the personification of love and mercy and eternal consort ofKrishna. That’s why the origin of the Holy Spirit is the female aspect of theAbsolute Truth.That would mean from our Vedic perspective: Srimati Radharani is thesource of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the female and the mercifulhealing energy of God. This interpretation is supported by the fact that theHebrew word for Gods spirit, "ruach yahweh, is female. The dove was inancient Orient a symbol for all the great goddesses. It is also an argumentthat the Holy Spirit came down in the form of a dove at the baptism of Jesuson the banks of the river Jordan.Within this Female Aspect of the Absolute Truth we see how two wavesof eastern and western philosophies come together and we have here asimilar effect as when two ocean-waves meet at the right moment: We get Knowledge informs – Love transforms. All living beings are an exten-a huge wave - a double wave of Holy Spirit! sion of Srimati Radharani and She connects us with the Love of the Whole to the Whole (Picture in high resolution on Bhaktimath.com). To transform and become good we have to come under the authority of the source of the good. In the picture above we see the two theistic disciples’ successions, a western and an eastern one. Both have been developed from a "old testamentary world view” into a "new testamentary loving world view” and which view the same truth just from two different perspectives.

  • 8. The Power of PremYoga (Yoga of Love): The Verse 12.8.46 from theBhagavad Purana (mentioned above) has a second part: "Intelligent per-sons thus worship Your beloved transcendental form, composed of puregoodness, along with the spiritual forms of Your pure devotees." In the Brihad-Gautamiya Tantra, Radharani is described as follows: Devi krishna-mayi prokta radhika para-devata sarva-lakshmi-mayi sarva kantih sammohini para"The transcendental goddess Srimati Radharani is the direct counterpart of Lord Sri Krishna. She is the central figure for all the goddesses of fortune.She possesses all the attractiveness to attract the all-attractive Personality of Godhead. She is the primeval internal potency of the Lord." Our Mother- and Father-God above the material matrix The Features of Bhagavan: Radha and Krishna are considered as the divine couple in the Hindu religion and they play in Indian spirituality (and art) an important role (Observe that the Guna-Avatara Brahma on the lover right is a mortal Jiva-Atma, which means one of us - an explanation of an practical insight and conclusion about that will follow). 15 16

  • 10. However, we should always remember that Raja is just a temporary The three Gunas from our conditioned perspective:covering of the soul, which rises to Sattva if it is regulated and used posi-tively. On the contrary; if Raja is performed whimsically, it transforms by thegravity of material nature into Tama-Guna and causes suffering. This bringsus to another paradox - our mind. The Bhagavad Gita recognizes equa-nimity or stability of our minds as an important precondition to self-realization. A disturbed mind cannot focus on anything in particular forlong. In a disturbed state of mind it is also not possible for us to withdrawour senses or control our thoughts and “he is the greatest enemy” (BG 6.5).The paradox is on one hand that the Bhagavad Gita gives great impor-tance for controlling our mind and directing it towards Vishuddha Sattva andon the other hand we should not give to much attention to our mind, sinceour mind is like a child. So let’s study the consciousness of a child:We can spoil a child either with not enough attention or with too much atten-tion. Too much undeserved attention leads to self centeredness. A spoiledchild is definitely one one who is too self centered and so is our mind. Sowhat is the solution here in the Yoga-Psychology of the three Gunas?First: The Guna-Avatara of Raja-Guna is in contrary to the other two amortal being! Second: A triangle has three sides and we can rotate(and flip) it - and on each side, on which it stands, it has two dualities: Avertical and a horizontal - that gives us a total of six dualities and corre-sponding philosophical conclusions – and that means for our case:Solution: If we remove the self centerdness of our mind, than we un-derstand it is just a question of the connection: We can rotate theGuna-triangle related to our current material situation / perspective and weget a horizontal duality of the divine (left) and the demoniac (right) andvertical duality of the influence (top) and influenced (below). That means:We are not thinking! We only can receive thoughts! In the same way wecan not even move our small finger! We are a spiritual soul and can onlyhave the desire to move our finger and Paramatma, the operating systemof the material wolrd is moving our finger in a way that gives us the illusion:“Hey, I move my finger!” The same thing applies to the subtle matter,to our mind and we should always observe from which channel do we re-ceive our thoughts – from the divine or the demoniac channel? Wheneverwe are not happy and peaceful, we are tuned in to the wrong channel.We just have to flip the switch and connect / tune in to the right channel, by Guna-Avatara Brahma is mortal Jiva-Atma as well as all those manybecoming personal and by asking and inviting the healing current i.e its Jiva-Atmas (on that Chinese beach).

  • 13. Conclusion (Siddhanta), Manifesto & Appeal: Mayavad leads to the dictatorship of relativism, as found in the world- view of todays elite and in the mass media as a gateway to modern ethical devolution. This is the worldview of the top Bilderbergers, the Illuminatis, the impersonal nihilists, the occultists, the Luciferian theosophists of Blavatsky, the Masonic-lodge-brothers and their subordinate media professionals and the system-press-whores. Mayavad is the world view of the dark side of the force manifested in the Lucifer Trust (founded by Blavatskys student Alice Bailey, who is still maintain a memorial room in the main building of the UN), and in the Bohemian Grove and its kabbalistic forefathers trio Jacob Frank, Adam Weishaupt and Meyer Amschel (Rothschild) and their sectarian dogma: "liberation from sin!" Kabbalah is Mayavad because it says evil is part of God: "God has two sides; [both] are essentially one thing; what we experience as evil is as Divine as what we experience as good. Everything is illusion - nothing is real, and the good is as much an illusion as the bad”. This worldview requires forced abolition of individuality, of cultural diversity and the man-woman duality (Genderism). In Buddhist secret writings of the Kalachakra Tantra is mentioned that the monk has to learn at a high level how to steal, kill and rape, because so he may realize that, since everything is one, good is in the material duality just as much an illu- sion as the bad. The infamous Machiavelli with his "The Prince" had similar views, and that’s why he is so popular: The nihilistic (impersonal) monism is the way how you can act badly with a good conscience.Photographic collection of the two spiritual masters and of some of the most prominent disciples of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta SarasvatiThakur Prabhupada.

  • 14. Summary: Mayavad is our only problem! Since the Absolute is all-good, our contact and connec- tion with exploitative passion (Raja Guna) and destructive ignorance (Tama Guna) is only possible if we build a wall of impersonalism against the source of the All-good (Vishuddha Sattva). In other words: “The only thing what is be- tween us and our total spiritual breakthrough are our Mayavad- tendencies! Mayavadi theology is the impersonal philosophy of all- pervading Illusion (everything is Maya). Mayavadi theology is de- structive to the faith in goodness, since it considers goodness itself to be an illusion, Maya”. Conclusion: “We are either Ma- yavad-bashers or we are one!” Appeal: To all the followers, grand-disciples, grand-grand-disciples, and grand-grand-grand-disciples of His Divine Grace Srila Bhak-tisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur Prabhupada: We don’t have to fight each This booklet is dedicated to those who are interested in a personal revolu-other!
