Levels of Consciousness
The Goloka Project is dedicated to providing its members with the experience of Moksha Level 5, also known as Bhakti Yoga. We believe Krishna is the Supreme Personality of God and lives in the Absolute Realm of Goloka, beyond this relative Universe where we live. Krishna is the Divine Silent Witness who observes all in every Universe. It is possible and our ultimate Goal to become One with Krishna and identify ourselves as the Divine Silent Witness. This is Bhakti Yoga and the Supreme Goal for all human beings on Earth and all Ascended Masters in the Celestial Realm and the Creator of this Universe, Lord Brahma.
We practice Atmavedi Meditation at least two times a day to connect with the Silent Witness that exists deep in the mind of all human beings. During this meditation our karmic traces are balanced and this allows the practitioner to transcend to deeper and deeper levels of consciousness where one may contact a more subtle aspect of the Silent Witness. Ultimately, we seek to contact and identify with the most subtle aspect of the Silent Witness, which is called the Divine Silent Witness. We seek to identify ourselves as the Divine Silent Witness in Bhakti Yoga.
There is one Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krishna, who resides in the Absolute Universe of Goloka. Krishna is the Ultimate Creator of all Universes. The proximate Creator of our Universe is Lord Brahma. Lord Brahma creates this Universe in His Mind - He literally thinks it into existence. Each human being is made in the image of Lord Brahma, and Lord Brahma is made in the image of Krishna. Each human being in this Universe is a dream creature in the Mind of Lord Brahma, so ultimately there is only One Being in this Universe who is not a dream creature, and that One Being is Creator, Lord Brahma. This means that every human being is ultimately the Creator, Lord Brahma. Lord Brahma, being the creation of Krishna, is ultimately Krishna. Therefore, each human being is Ultimately Krishna. It is the Goal of human existence for each person to Realize this identity with Krishna.
Our Path to Krishna is described in the Vedic Literature which was written down at the start of Kali Yuga, about 5,050 years ago, by Veda Vyasa, an Incarnation of Lord Vishnu, who is Krishna in this Universe. The three principle texts of the Vedic Literature that guide us are the Bhagavad Gita, the Yoga Vasistha and the Srimad Bhagavatam.
The Goloka Project has a vision of the near future, only 10 to 20 years from now, when the world will enter a new age of peace, love, harmony and prosperity. This period will arise spontaneously when world collective consciousness rises to Level of Consciousness 340 or higher. Currently the world is at 207 and 85% of the population are below 200. This means 6.5 billion of the population is experiencing life in the lower ranges of the LOC scale and their day to day experience is one of fear, anger, frustration, greed, pride, apathy, hatred, poverty, hopelessness, and desperation.
The mission of The Goloka Project is to establish a large collective consciousness that is above LOC 600, to pull the entire world collective consciousness up to LOC 340, through a network of Spiritual Communities around the Earth. We are agents of Krishna, the Supreme Personality of God, striving to bring this Universe into the Krishna Golden Age.
This golden age was predicted to come at this time by Krishna, when He incarnated on Earth around 3181 BCE. During this Incarnation, Krishna lived on earth for 150 years. You can read the Srimad Bhagavatam for the full story of His Incarnation, it was a very interesting time. When He was leaving at about 3031 BCE, 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. Here are some of the verses that describe the prediction. He was conversing with Ganga, the Goddess of the rivers and an aspect of the Divine Mother, who was concerned for the welfare of world:
he natha ramanashreshtha yasi golokamuttamam
asmakam ka gatishcatra bhavishyati kalau yuge
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?
kaleh pancasahasrani varshani tishtha bhutale
papani papino yani tubhyam dasyanti snanatah
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.
kaler dasha-sahasrani madbhaktah santi bhu-tale
ekavarna bhavishyanti madbhakteshu gateshu ca
Then, for 10,000 years of kali, devotees of Mine will populate the Earth. After the departure of My devotees there will only be one varna.
madbhaktashunya prithivi kaligrasta bhavishyati
etasminnantare tatra krishnadehadvinirgatah
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 5,046 years as of 2015), we can expect a reset on earth to a time when many people on earth will enjoy Krishna Realization. Such a time will be a golden age of peace, happiness and prosperity for all of mankind. Maharishi said in 1970 (5,001 years into Kali yuga) that He saw the dawning of the Age of Enlightenment, and this time of 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 - literally Heaven on Earth, or what we call The Krishna Golden Age.
To raise the collective consciousness of Humanity enough to establish this golden age, there are two possibilities: 1) collective karma balancing natural disasters around the world, which will cause untold suffering and death to billions of people, or 2) create a large enough group in the world that has a very high Level of Consciousness, high enough to raise the entire collective consciousness to LOC 340 or higher.
We call the first possibility a pralaya or transitional phase. Pralayas are common and arise periodically when the collective karma of Humanity is so destructive that
the current Kali Yuga ends and the entire Universe is destroyed, to arise anew with Sat Yuga, or the maintenance quality of the Universe steps in to restore balance and preserve the current yuga. Major Pralaya occurs at the end of the lifetime of the Creator (Lord Brahma), and there is 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 humanity is engulfed in a minor pralaya that will culminate in the start of a 10,000-year golden age. This pralaya will provide sufficient balance in collective karma 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 golden age 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 may be coming to remove the negative influences and allow a new era of happiness, peace and perfection for Man to bloom.
The second possibility to raise collective consciousness on Earth was recently gifted to Humanity by Lord Krishna with a new technology that brings forth the promise of eliminating the need for most of the destructive, collective karma balancing pralaya. This is the 1,000 Goloka Sanctuary Communities around the world coupled with the Ekam Vitara Network.
The Ekam Vitara is a technology that creates a high consciousness field, specific for each individual subscriber, that elevates the consciousness of these individuals to their next higher level. The elevation of consciousness that one experiences as a result of being in the Ekam Vitara Network is permanent and forms the foundation for their next step up, when the subscriber chooses to activate their next level of consciousness. This process can be repeated again and again until the highest level of consciousness available to the human being is experienced.
The Ekam Vitara Network with one million Members will establish world peace and create the foundational collective consciousness, world-wide, that is the basis for a whole new way of living in a world of peace, prosperity and happiness for everyone on Earth. Yes, even the eradication of disease, poverty, sadness and desperation that have become the normal way of life for billions of our fellow human beings will be accomplished. We can put an end to war, aggression, hate, anger, and all that is so damaging to human life. We can eliminate the need for a pralaya and restore Kali Yuga onto its proper course for completion in 427,000 years. Even more important, we can establish the Krishna Golden Age now for all 7.7 billion of the world's population! This is a grand endeavor and will require the participation of at least one million people from around the world.
All residents of the Goloka Sanctuary Communities are Members of the Ekam Vitara Network. But you can join the Network and do your part to establish and maintain World Peace without being a resident of one of the spiritual communities. Please visit https://www.EkamVitara.org to find out how you can participate in the Ekam Vitara Network.
The mandate of the Goloka Project is to prepare for the coming Krishna Golden Age.
