Hi Yoder, I live in India and an Indian. And this land is also a land of scores of babas and godmen and godwomen with thousands of followers. When the babas have foreign followers, they are considered as international level babas. If these babas are enlightened beings whose real intention is to teac...

This topic was forgotten for some time. Interestingly a recent search obtained this: Full text of "Catalogue of meteorites : with special reference to those represented in the collection of the British Museum (Natural History)" [Link: http://archive.org/stream/catalogueofmeteo00brituoft/ca...

Hi Angel Fransisco, IMO, it is perhaps both. The 'evangels' have to discuss and draw out a plan suiting to the individual survivor at morontia level so that the latter make a choice. To advance, both mind capabilities are to be enhanced to higher spiritual values and experiential capacities are to b...

Hi Angel Fransisco! Good that Makalu and Bart could make things clear to you. To sum up : It is literally true: “If any man has Christ Jesus within him, he is a new creature; old things are passing away; behold, all things are becoming new.” TUB now gives the best opportunity for us to learn the lif...

If we go by the simple story of the Bible, we are to believe that Abel was the 'innocent' younger son who got murdered by his elder brother Cain. But TUB explains all that in much detail and now we are privileged to know all these undocumented incidences of the past as a revealed history. Through th...

Yoder777 asked: What evidence is there that material prosperity is the real motive for most Hindu teachers and saints? This is a controversial topic and I would not like to go deeper in to it. But as of now, there is not a day when the scandals of the so-called god men of India are not covered by th...

"A little knowledge could be too dangerous !" Does this incident proves it anyway?

Ista-devata, is a south Indian (Malayalam, Tamil languages) word meaning favorite god which is used to describe the demi-gods who are specific to some families or groups or clans or villages. Now-a-days, Rama and Krishna (human incarnations of Vishnu) or their local avatars are the preferred deities...

I think you are right Yoder777 as you wrote: What I am trying to say is that the more advanced Adjusters may specifically choose to be indwelt into the poor and the sick, because those are the people more likely to seek spiritual rather than material things due to the lot they've been given in life....

That's it Bro Makalu. You aptly pointed out: confusion only persists in the face of indolence. While on the other hand "If any man chooses to do the divine will, he shall know the way of truth." I think we should give a careful perusal of the UB paras that Bro Makalu quoted. BTW, it was no...

IMHO, the reason why the UB truths appear as falsehoods to most humans, is because of the difficulty that we face to listen to the 'feeble voice' of our TAs within us. We just cannot listen and obey that voice when our self importance, anger, greed, vengeance, envy, jealousy, anxiety, bias, cleverne...

You got it right Bro Kicoverz! My curiosity was to know more on this as you had rightly understood and said: I think if you read Rajan's link, you would better understand the real question behind this thread. If I understood you correctly brother Rajan, are you asking about the supernatural abilitie...

Kahanyah asked: Are you implying that Earth is a reincarnation world for those unfit to move forward to the mansions? No, I did not mean that. I said of the possibility of those rejecting 'truths' end up here on this earth and losing their opportunity for migrating to the higher worlds of immortal e...

Dear Bro.FoV ! You wrote : I don't know what you mean "dispatched". See, this : 108:1.1 When Adjusters are dispatched for mortal service from Divinington, they are identical in the endowment of existential divinity, but they vary in experiential qualities proportional to previous contact i...
