The divine grace descends when the time ripens. I was in the
monastery in the initial days of my monastic life in the suburbs
of Calcutta; of course going through the phase of discovering a
new life that dwells in the depth of our own superficiality. Then
the golden moment came, on 15 October 1978, the great Himalayan
Master Baba Lokenath Brahmachari (1730-1890) appeared in a
vision and revealed to me the purpose of my being in the path
of Light and the task ahead. I asked him many questions that
were bothering me, and he answered them all with infinite love
and compassion. Then he asked me "Why have you stopped
writing?" I was a bit taken aback, how could he know that I used
to keep journal of my revered Master’s conversations, which I
had stopped. He continued, "I read your writes, I liked them,"
then he just lifted his long right hand into the air and waved it in
a circular motion and said "Write and spread out".
Years later I left the ashram and as a wandering mendicant in
Himalayas reached a place called Bageshwar, famous for holy
confluence and an ancient Shiva Temple. There, on the top of a
mountain, I built a small retreat with a temple of Baba Lokenath
and started my practice of deeper contemplation. The inspiration
to write the first ever English Biography of Baba Lokenath came
at this time. It was an experience to write the life and teachings
of Mahayogi, just being a humble instrument allowing the Divine
writer to flow through me. It was not just writing a book or
biography by collecting information and putting them
chronologically, but to me it was my penance, my spiritual practice.
For in the course of writing this book, by the grace of the Master,
I could visualize the episodes and times of Baba Lokenath, and
just translate those visions into words that flowed without much
effort. When the ascended Masters ordain anyone to do a divine
task, then it is the power of the Master that completes the task.
Yes, that has been my deepest experience; I could feel my
instrumentation and how silently it also brought about an inner
transformation for which I have been longing and meditating for
As you read this book, cease know that very little is known
about Baba Lokenath’s long life of 160 years, for he was against
any propaganda about him or his incomprehensible powers of
manifesting miracles. But this book has his presence, for it is his
divine grace that made this book possible. Whoever will read this
book will feel the aura of his divine presence surrounding. It is
no coincidence that you have this book and you are reading the
life of one who could say, "In danger, remember me, I will save
you." J tell you, he keeps his promise, and you can try.’
Please read his promises, his teachings and the lives of those
who came in touch with him and the transformations they attained,
particularly, his equanimity, his infinite love for animals and his
boundless compassion for mankind.
May you be blessed with peace and joy in your life, and feel
the presence of the Master removing all the obstacles from the
path of life to your ultimate journey of retreating back Home.
