The Earth is on course for an Extinction Level Event (ELE) that will cause massive destruction world-wide and loss of life for more than 93% of the world’s population. The scriptural, scientific and circumstantial evidence is overwhelming that such an event is on the horizon, and we would be foolish to ignore these warnings and not prepare when there is a viable solution for comfortable survival and prosperity. This book is for those who are destined to reach the other side of this ELE and be among the first generation of a world that will literally be the start of a new age for Mankind.
The information contained in this book began formulating in my awareness in 1979 and has now reached a state of completeness where it can be shared. Some may be in opposition to this way of thinking, especially those whose life paradigm does not include the concepts of karma and reincarnation. I urge you to lay aside all preconceived notions of what the truth of life may be according to your belief system and keep an open mind as you read this book. It is not my intention to convert anyone to a new religion, or start a religion, but rather to simply put forth the truth as I have come to know it after all these years of study and research.
In addition to detailed information about the coming ELE, I also present a holistic solution to not only surviving this 10-year period of destruction, or pralaya as it is known in the Vedic Literature, but also present a way to thrive throughout the period and into the new age that will surely follow.
We begin with an overview of what our universe is from a perspective that is outside of our universe. We will come to know how our universe is structured, and an overview of the great epochs that have passed and will be coming. Then we drill down to the current time and investigate the changes and specific events that are highly probable for us in the next few years. Finally, I offer a holistic solution to the problems that we now face and are likely to face in the next few years.
The title “Returning to Goloka” captures the essence of this book. Goloka is the Real world that exists outside of our temporal universe. Goloka is the model for every universe. It is the ideal and real world where all is perfection, acceptance and universal love. Goloka is the eternal, never-changing Absolute aspect of existence that underlies the ever-changing relative aspect that we know as our universe. The perfection of Goloka was once the reality of our universe, at the first day of the creation of the universe, and perfection of Goloka comes again to be the reality of our universe with the dawning of each new “Day of Brahma.” We live now in an unprecedented time of transition into a new epoch that will again be reflecting the perfection of Goloka – we are returning to Goloka.
Returning to Goloka
The Cycles of Time
There are various accounts of the age and origin of our universe from ancient scriptures and scientific theories. I have studied many of them, including Creationism from the Christian Tradition, Creationism from the Vedic Tradition, Catastrophism, and Darwinism, and also researched this topic in consciousness using the technique of Samyama on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. The mind is our best research instrument. This is because our universe is made of consciousness. Consciousness is a mysterious term that defies a simple definition. We could say it is the quality of the state of awareness of something within oneself. It is the “content” of the mind. But then what is the mind? Mind is a tool of consciousness, and it is made of consciousness.
Consciousness is the fundamental substratum of all there is in this universe. Everything exists in a sea of consciousness, and everything is made of consciousness. Consider bubbles in the ocean. What is the bubble made of? Water, just as the ocean is made of water. Everything is like a bubble in the ocean of consciousness. If we look at one thing, one bubble, it is found to be just a modification of consciousness. How do we research something in consciousness? Using the mind, through the process of meditation. By turning our awareness inward, applying the Samyama technique of meditation, and with a specific intent to know something, that thing can be known.
The Vedic Literature is the written record of the knowledge and experiences of Veda Vyasa, who composed the Vedas and the Puranas, and his son Shuka who composed the S’rîmad Bhagavatam.
Vyasa composed the Vedic Literature in written form to help the people of this age to understand something about the world in which they live. In the present age, known as Kali yuga, the intelligence of Man is very dim, in comparison to previous ages where it was much greater and nothing had to be written down. Everything was known directly in consciousness at first, then in subsequent ages the knowledge was passed down from person to person by telepathic and verbal communications. Now, the intelligence of Man is so weak that we need crutches in the form of books and writings to refer to and guide us along the correct path of understanding our world.
Vyasa lived on earth during the time of the Mahabharata. This was about 3100 BC during the latter part of the previous age known as Dwapara yuga.
The Vedic Literature provides the oldest and most accurate account of the origin and development of our universe. Herein we find Vedic Creationism that paints a true picture of the life of our universe. Vedic Creationism breaks the life of our universe into unimaginably long time periods, with the whole of the life of the universe being 311.04 trillion years.
The characteristics of each age or Yuga are given, in particular with reference to the human race. After all, the entire Universe was created fore and is maintained for the benefit of the human race (Quite contrary to what we are told by the global elite and their “modern science”.) From the Vedic Literature we know the universe operates on a very large time scale divided into “Days of Brahma”.
In the image on the previous page that depicts the Life of Brahma (our Creator), we can find our current time near the bottom, near the start of Kali yuga, just before the Krishna Golden Age. We tend to think that only people with physical bodies are “real” and the invisible (to our physical eyes) beings are sort of imaginary or creatures of the mind. Actually, human beings have five bodies and with our subtler bodies we can directly interact with these beings, but most of us do not know how to use the other four.
This image is a graphic that illustrates the 5 bodies or Koshas that every human being has, they are:
- anamaya kosha: the body of ana or food - the physical body of skin, bones, tissues, etc. This body is our vehicle for experience in the physical realm.
- pranamaya kosha: the body of prana or energy. Prana is that subtle non-physical substance which is responsible for all transmutation of physical matter. We should understand prana as that which causes chemical reaction, and chemical reaction is the process which transmutes one physical substance into another. The pranamaya kosha of one person is different from the pranamaya kosha of another like one whirlpool in the river is different from another. Both whirlpools are made of the same water, but if we study the two different whirlpools we will see differences between them. Like this, my pranamaya kosha and your pranamaya kosha are made of the same prana but they are different. This body is our vehicle for experience in the Astral realm.
- manomaya kosha: the body of manas or mind. Manas is the cause of all movement in prana. When manas is still, prana is still. When manas is active, prana is active. With this body, we experience existence in the lower Celestial realm.
- vijñanamaya kosha: the body of vijñana or intellect. Vijñana is the seat of the knowledge of the parts or components of what makes an individual unique. The upper Celestial realm is experienced via this body.
- anandamaya kosha: the body of ananda or bliss. There is only one anandamaya kosha in the realm of Lord Brahma, which is shared by all, in a state of relative Unity. With this body, we experience the reality that we are the entire Universe, we are Brahma - "Aham Brahmasmi"
The Creator of our Universe is a Celestial Being who resides in the highest Celestial Realm and we know Him as Lord Brahma. He lives for 311.04 trillion years, and this is the length of time that our Universe exists. Our Universe is like a dream in the Mind of the Creator and we are like His dream creatures. The progenitor of Lord Brahma is the Transcendental Celestial Being known as Lord Narayana. It is Lord Narayana who instructs Lord Brahma to create the Universe by performing Samyama on the primordial sounds of the Rig Veda. The Rig Veda is the collection of mantras, recorded for us by Vyasa, that are used to create a Universe. There are 432,000 mantras in the Rig Veda, which is divided into 10 mandalas or chapters. The sounds of mandalas 1 through 8 create everything in the Universe except for Man and Consciousness. The sounds of the 9th mandala create perfect human bodies and the 10th mandala creates the consciousness that we experience as our lives.
So this is interesting! Earlier we wrote that everything is made of consciousness and now write that the 10th mandala creates the consciousness that we experience as our lives. Consciousness creates consciousness. Here is where we have to understand there are two values of consciousness: 1) Absolute Consciousness and 2) Relative Consciousness.
Everything that Lord Brahma creates is Relative to the Absolute. The Absolute is the real or eternal aspect of Consciousness and the Relative is the unreal or temporal aspect of consciousness. We define that which is Absolute as that which never changes, and is eternal and immortal. Relative is a projection of the Absolute, like a reflection in a mirror is not the object but it has the appearance of the object.
When Lord Brahma performs His grand meditation, which takes Him thousands of years, the entire universe, complete with His “mind born children” – the first people – comes into being. The first Day of Brahma begins. The universe is a paradise that is modeled after the Absolute Paradise known as Goloka. The first mind born children of Brahma (arising from His Samyama on the 9th mandala of the Rig Veda) have perfect, fully developed minds and bodies. For example, today the normal IQ is about 100 but on this first Day of Brahma the normal IQ is 100,000. Now, we struggle to live just in the physical realm for no more than 100 years, but on the first Day of Brahma, the people have the perfect physiology to live for 100,000 years.
Let’s look at the different time periods or eras that the universe passes through with some characteristics of each era. This information comes from the Vedic Literature (S’rîmad Bhagavatam) and has been verified by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi (Commentary on Chapters 1-6 of the Bhagavad Gita), and many others including my personal research. The universe is about halfway through its 311.04 trillion-year lifespan at this time. This Day of Brahma in which we exist, is divided into 4 eras or yugas:
- 1. SATYA-YUGA – duration of 1,728,000 years. The population begins with the perfected, godly, mind-born children of Lord Brahma (the Creator), who subsequently procreate and populate the earth. Average human life span is 100,000 years in this yuga. These human bodies have 100% of fully functional DNA and life is realized in its full potential. There is no “hardware” or computer based technology - all technology is mantra based.
- 2. TRETA YUGA - also called the silver age, lasts 1,296,000 years. The average life span is 10,000 years and the godly qualities decrease one fourth compared to the Satya yuga. Human bodies have 80% functional DNA and life is lived at less than full potential.
- 3. DVAPARA YUGA - or the bronze age, lasts 864,000 years. Godly qualities are reduced to 50% by now and the average life expectancy is only 1,000 years. Human bodies have 40% functional DNA and life is lived with dependency on hardware technologies, and shelters are constructed for protection from harsher environments.
- KALI YUGA - the iron age of hypocrisy, deceit, and quarrel lasts 432,000 years. Very few of the population exhibit the qualities of devotion to God and life expectancy is only 100 years. Human bodies have less than 20% functional DNA, and that will continue to decline, and life is lived in ignorance of its full potential. There is almost total dependency on hardware technologies just to sustain life. It reaches the extreme known as the "singularity" when computers have greater than human intelligence and machines actually dominate - to the extreme in which the human body is replaced totally by robotic machines and human consciousness is somehow “hosted” by these machines.
Within this Kali yuga period, at this exact time, we are entering a rare reset period of Satya yuga. This 10,000-year bubble of Satya yuga (or Krishna Golden Age) is depicted in the image by the picture of Goloka in the image above.
The Krishna Golden Age
We have introduced the concept of a 10,000-year bubble of Satya yuga (or Krishna Golden Age), so this requires some explanation. First, who is Krishna? From the Vedic Literature (S’rîmad Bhagavatam) and personal experience, we know that Krishna is the Supreme Personality of God. He resides in the Absolute realm of Goloka, which is outside of our universe. Our universe is actually not “real” in the sense of something permanent. It is “relative” or ever changing. Underlying our universe is something that is Real, eternal and never changing. We call this the Absolute. Within the Absolute, we find Goloka and Krishna and His eternal companions. The topic of Krishna is vast and we will not attempt to go into it in detail here. The interested reader is referred to the S’rîmad Bhagavatam for this information. Krishna is not a concept, He is a Real Person and can be known personally, if one is so inclined.
Krishna incarnated in human form at about 3181 BC and lived on earth for 150 years (see the S’rîmad Bhagavatam for the full story). When He was leaving the Earth at the end of His Incarnation, at about 3031 BC, at the start of Kali yuga, He made a prediction. We find this prediction in the Brahma-vaivarta Purana, 4th Khanda, Chapter 129, 49-60:
he natha ramanashreshtha
asmakam ka gatishcatra
bhavishyati kalau yuge
Translation: Ganges said: O protector, Supreme enjoyer, on your departure for Goloka (the perfect abode), thereafter what will be my situation in the age of kali?
varshani tishtha bhutale
papani papino yani
tubhyam dasyanti snanatah
Translation: The blessed Lord said: On the earth 5,000 years of kali will be, and sinful and sinners will deposit their sins in you by bathing.
madbhaktah santi bhu-tale
madbhakteshu gateshu ca
Translation: Then, for 10,000 years of kali, devotees of Mine will fill the Earth. After the departure of My devotees there will only be one varna.
Translation: Devoid of My devotees, the earth will be [again] shackled by kali. Saying this Krishna departed.
From this we know that after about 5,000 years of Kali yuga (we have been in Kali yuga for 5,048 years as of 2017), we can expect a reset on earth to a time when all people on earth will know Krishna. Basically, during this time that is coming very soon, God will not be some mysterious, invisible Being that “lives in the sky and is always watching us but does not answer clearly when we try to talk to Him” but instead will be known to everyone as a real Being who does answer clearly and with whom everyone can have a personal relationship. Such a time is found only during Satya yuga, so this 10,000-year period must be a time of Satya yuga. Maharishi said in 1970 (5,001 years into Kali yuga) that He saw the “dawning of the Age of Enlightenment,” and this time of universal Enlightenment will last for 10,000 years. In 1975 Maharishi made a world tour to inaugurate the Dawn of the Age of Enlightenment and predicted the entire world would become an Ideal Society of the Enlightened, or what we call The Krishna Golden Age.
To end Kali yuga and bring in the dawn of Satya yuga, there is always a pralaya or transitional phase. At the end of the lifetime of Lord Brahma, there is a major destruction of the entire universe – absolutely nothing remains. At the end of each Day of Brahma, there is a major pralaya that separates the end of Kali yuga from the start of the new Satya yuga. This is a period of almost total destruction; like when waking from a dream, one only has the memory of the dream. But like a recurring dream the next Day of Brahma dawns as a renewed dream, starting with Satya yuga and a new population of mind born children of Brahma.
Today we are alive to witness the pralaya that will culminate in the start of a 10,000-year Satya yuga. This is done to provide a “reset” so that the current Day of Brahma does not end prematurely. We have 427,000 years of Kali yuga to go in this Day of Brahma! But Man has declined into a state of ignorance, decadence and deceit that threatens the very existence of this Day of Brahma.
Krishna, through His expansion as Lord Vishnu, is the aspect of the Divine who maintains the universe created by Lord Brahma. Anytime the universe begins to “go off the rails,” Lord Vishnu will step in to restore it to the prescribed path. This 10,000 year Satya yuga is one example of such an intervention to save the Day of Brahma from prematurely ending. Like a rain shower to bring an end to a drought so that the land may again bring forth food, a period of destruction is coming to remove the negative influences and allow a new era of happiness, peace and perfection for Man to bloom.
 Patanjali lived between 2nd and 4th century CE. He recorded, in his tretise Yoga Sutras, a system for fully understanding the Universe and our place in it. Deepak Chopra subtitles this famous work "How to Know God." The technique of Samyama that Patanjali teaches is the same meditation technique used by the Creator of our Universe to create our Universe directly from consciousness.
 The Bhagavata Pura?a (also Srimad Bhagavata Maha Pura?a, Srimad Bhagavatam or Bhagavata) is one of Vedic Literatures eighteen great Puranas (Mahapuranas, great histories). Composed in Sanskrit and available now in many languages, it promotes Krishna integrating theme from the Advaita (monism) philosophy of Adi Shankara
 Maharishi Mahesh Yogi (12 January 1918 – 5 February 2008) was born Mahesh Prasad Varma and became known as Maharishi (meaning "great seer") and Yogi as an adult. He developed the Transcendental Meditation technique and was the leader and guru of a worldwide organization.
 The Bhagavad Gita (lit. "Song of the Lord"), often referred to as simply the Gita, is a 700-verse text in Sanskrit that is part of the epic Mahabharata (chapters 25 - 42 of the 6th book of Mahabharata).
