THE PROPHETS ARE A DIRECT DESCENT OF THE LORD on earth,
of the Divine. They come to set things right, to harmonize,
and uplift, to make righteousness and truth prevail. Each

revealed to His disciple Arjuna five thousand years ago,
the Bhagavad Gita:

O Bharata, and growth of adharma
Then I embody Myself

For the destruction of the wicked (evil)

HOW DOES THE SUPREME LORD WORK THROUGH HIS PROPHETS to
restore balance and harmony, without which the creation
function? Does He leave His abode and come, or does He send
emissary or Son? How does He take the shape of Spirit
embodied as a
Prophet? What is this phenomenon? Who is the Son of God? Who
Vishnu and Who is Krishna? Who is the Father in heaven and
Jesus? Who is the Buddha and Who the Bodhisattva? How does
marriage of the Spirit and mind take place? The answer is

Prophet of a particular age may come as peaceful and
as a warrior to vanquish evil—whatever we have asked for or
situation demands. To Him, violence and nonviolence are not
opposites but a means to uphold and uplift humanity and
consciousness; Dharma transcends both violence and
any cost Dharma must prevail; justice will be done; humanity
be uplifted. In each age, the Prophet knows best what
required to reach us to the next evolution.
Kalki, as per the scriptures, is the tenth Incarnation. The
Kalki means literally, "of iron" or "machine." It does not

and Gomorrah. Abraham was a man of God. When he heard that
angels were going to destroy the city, he had pity and

Will You destroy the whole city and everybody in it because

destroy the city? And God said, If there are fifty good
won't destroy the city. Then Abraham got more pitying and
What if there are fifty minus five, forty-five good people?
will You destroy the city? God said If there are forty-five
people, I will not destroy the city. It is human nature that
God relents and yields, we ask for more. So Abraham said,
there are only forty good people? In this way it came down
thirty, twenty-five, then twenty.
At this point Abraham felt self-conscious. He said, God, I

The tail-end of the Iron Age is now merging into the Age of
or Satya Yuga. Shri Mataji explains:
"So, now a New Age has started which is called the Age of

of the tree that rises and nourishes all parts of the tree

Moreover these are special times. This is the Resurrection
Qiyamah). The Last Judgment is done by the Kundalini. On the
fingertips one can feel oneself and can judge oneself.
All-pervading power has become very activated, so the Kali
(these modem times or Age of Darkness) is passing into Krita
Brahma Chaitanya (activated All-pervading power). This is
the en-masse enlightenment and self realisation.
After this will be Satya Yuga (Age of Truth). We have to
advantage of this activity of the Brahma Chaitanya by all
being corrected with the All-pervading Power and achieving
realisation and establishing it. After such a state a person
very dynamic and compassionate. His race, sex, nationality
do not hamper his dynamic life."
Only an Incarnation can commence a new Yuga (age) and they
know Shri Mataji has done just that.
But that does not mean we are going to have an earthly
