“…the hall was suddenly abolished, its walls rendered invisible, and the new space was radiant with the appearance of a summoned being, the tender presence of the great mother, protectress of the island and its secret ways. The swirling energies of this being were everywhere, making the spaces alive with something akin to the electrification of the spirit, and a mighty collective hum of praise now seemed to have lifted off into the air, and the city seemed in flight. Such a splendid weightlessness pervaded everything, and all those in the great hall seemed to be afloat on a silver cloud, spiralling into the sublimity of the great mother. It wasn’t long before he felt that something about him had changed forever in that celestial mood.” (p. 142)
Ben Okri, Astonishing the Gods
Ben Okri won the Booker prize for The Famished Road. Astonishing the Gods is a fable exploring deep metaphysical ideas.
These are extracts from the book, Nadigrantha, written by Shantaram Athvale. The author provides information about several so-called Nadigranthas, which are great, ancient books on astrology, e.g. Bhrigu Samhita, Satya Nadi, Kak Nadi and others. In this particular extract the author refers to the scripture of Kak Nadi written by Kakayyar Bhujander who was a great astrologer and seeker and lived nearly 2000 years ago.
While Jupiter is in Pisces a great Yogi will incarnate on the Earth. By 1970 it will have become quite evident to many people that a new era will have started. Kaliyuga will end and Kritayuga will start. The axis of the Earth will depress and the Earth’s orbit will come closer and closer to the Sun.
Human life will undergo a complete revolution. A great Yogi will incarnate at this time. This Yogi will be the Incarnation of Parabrahma and will have all the divine powers. Until this time a yogi or devotee could achieve the bliss of Moksha and find the ultimate meaning of his life only by following the path of devotion, knowledge and Pantanjali Yoga. But he would have to go through severe penance in order to awaken the sleeping powers of various chakras of his body and finally enlighten the Kundalini Power.
By the new method of yoga devised by the great Yogi, human beings will be able to attain the joy of Moksha within one lifetime. It would no longer be necessary to sacrifice one’s body or to die in order to achieve Moksha. The Brahmananda which so far only great saints had been able to experience and then only by entering into the Samadhi state at the point of death, due to this new type of yoga could be achieved by ordinary human beings without entering Samadhi state while dying.
In the beginning it would be possible for one person to attain this Yoga and Moksha. However, after some time the whole human race with the help of this Yoga will be able to defeat itself. People won’t have to worry about food, shelter or clothing. While living ordinary lives people will achieve Yoga – Union with God. There will be no necessity for hospitals as there will be no diseases. In the beginning the great Yogi will be able to heal diseases with a mere touch. Old age with its destruction of the body will not exist and people will possess heavenly bodies.
The world will have to suffer the consequences of a third world war. This world war would end by interference of the Great Yogi. In the end all the nations of the world will come together with the feeling of oneness. They will agree on the destructiveness of war. There will be a great international conference in a big city of the world. Yogis will lead this conference rather than intellectuals or politicians. Then the world will recover from the aftermath of war. The whole of the humanity will understand the importance of prayer and all the nations will unite together.
Due to new scientific discoveries science and religions would become one. With the help of the science the existence of God and the Soul could be proved. The veil of ignorance and Maya would be drawn aside and Brahmananda, Moksha which could previously only be attained by yogis as a result of very hard work and severe penance, would become easily available to many human beings. In this new era every person would have his position in the system according to his individual qualities and merit. It will be possible to fulfill people’s needs and desires and so it will no longer be necessary to accumulate money. Without poverty and diseases society will be healthy and carefree.
Whilst held in a Stalinist prison in the 1950s, the Russian writer, Daniil Andreev (1909-1959), had a series of visions of a future in which the Zventa-Sventana (Divine Feminine) would come to Earth, and through an organisation known as the Roza Mira (Rose of the World) would offer the possibility of redemption to humans.
This is described in detail in his book, Roza Mira, which has been compared with Dante’s Divine Comedy. It is reasonable to argue that Andreev was, in fact, describing the Advent of Shri Mataji and of Sahaja Yoga.

The Legend of Dagad Trikon by Grégoire de Kalbermatten
“When Jonathan O’Lochan, Counselor at the U.S. embassy in Cairo first saw the small monkey perched on a branch of a nearby acacia tree, he thought that the cute little visitor was pleading for food so he threw it a banana. But, in his wildest dreams, he could never have guessed that the pleasing of this particular monkey was about to change his life.”
So begins The Legend of Dagad Trikon, an action-packed, good-versus-evil, fantasy thriller that embraces ten thousand years of history. Journeying through Africa, Europe, India and America, it tells of four prophecies hidden by the Avasthas, an enlightened race who vanished aeons ago.
Jonathan and his friends find themselves unwittingly on a search for the greatest prize that mankind can attain: the secret to how we can transcend the perceived limits of the human mind. The Legend of Dagad Trikon offers a precise explanation as to how this can happen and posits that this is at the heart of the Holy Grail myth.
No brief description can do justice to The Legend of Dagad Trikon. One may legitimately describe it as Tolkienesque, and there are certainly elements of CS Lewis in the writing. What one can say for sure, is that it is an utterly unique and rewarding reading experience, full of subtlety and nuance, something to be re-read and savoured many times.

Please see what some readers have said:
“This is one of those rare books, like the master work of CS Lewis, which draw you in completely and compel you to participate with the protagonists on their amazing journey. Having heard such great things about the book from friends, I had very high expectations and I wasn’t disappointed. It was so enjoyable to be swept into such a captivating ‘reality’. Please let there be a sequel.”

“The Legend of Dagad Trikon is a phenomenal read. The author is at his best explaining the battles, inner and outer, that we all face daily.”
John Schwartz, Maryland, USA
“I am eager to know the trick from the people who wrote that they make sure to read a few pages every day. I could not put it down until I finished it. It took almost a day to come back to the real life. Great book! Or may I call it a Legend? I am ready for a second go at it. Thanks to Mr. Grégoire.”
Vara Prasad Goluguri, Sweden
“This book is absolutely breathtaking. It is impossible to put down. It is something unlike anything else ever written before. The author brilliantly relates the connection of the underlying truths, hidden and forgotten, in different cultures over the world. The Legend of Dagad Trikon is deeply symbolic, and I feel that the author is describing something that is really happening here and now. As has been predicted, the time is approaching when religion and science will become one: no more believing, only knowledge through experience. I think this book is going to be a milestone in the evolution of Man’s ability to discover and use the full potential of the brain. The main characters in the book are discovering truths about the human race that have been, and are still today, forbidden to be spoken of in some places. An example is that no man or woman is higher than another; so no priests are necessary. Maybe this book is part of a silent revolution. It is incredible how subtle and intelligent the power from which he got his inspiration must be.
Thank you, Mr. Kalbermatten, for sharing this with us.”
