The soul, created out of God’s Spirit, remembers the freedom it once knew—if only in fleeting moments of awareness.
We ask ourselves in the stillness of the night or in our meditations on nature: “Who am I? Why was I born? Where am I going?”
Then as the dial of consciousness shifts, we’re caught up again in everyday life—caring for our families, earning a living and dealing with the violence in our neighborhoods and schools. The world around us is changing at an accelerated pace.
Even if you’re keeping it together while tending to life’s daily challenges, you may have the nagging sense that something is missing, something to give meaning to it all. Your soul’s longing for fulfillment has still not been met by the stack of self-help books on your nightstand.
So why not go to those who have already mastered life, realized their divine potential and attained oneness with God?
Who are the Ascended Masters?
They are enlightened spiritual beings who, after lifetimes of devotion and service, returned to God in the ritual of the ascension. In the scriptures of East and West they’re referred to as the saints and avatars.
You may recognize some of them—Gautama Buddha, Moses, Jesus, Kuan Yin, Krishna and Confucius. We know them today as ascended masters.
Who is the Ascended Master Krishna?
Krishna is a divine being, an incarnation of the Godhead, an avatar, and he is one of the most celebrated Indian heroes of all time. He has captured the imagination and devotion of Hindus everywhere in his many forms—whether as a frolicking, mischievous child, as the lover of shepherdesses, or as the friend and wise counselor of the mighty warrior Arjuna.
Krishna Janmashtami, the Hindu festival commemorating the birth of Krishna, always falls within mid-August to mid-September in the Gregorian calendar. In 2012, it is celebrated on August 10. The day is marked by fasting and prayer.
Krishna teaches Arjuna about the Four Yogas
Krishna’s story is told in the Bhagavad Gita, the most popular religious work of India, composed between the fifth and second centuries b.c. and part of the great Indian epic, the Mahabharata.
Bhagavad Gita means “Song of God.” It is written as a dialogue between Krishna and Arjuna. Arjuna is Krishna’s friend and disciple.
Krishna teaches Arjuna about the four yogas, or paths of union with God, and says that all the yogas should be practiced. The four yogas are knowledge (jnana yoga), meditation (raja yoga), work (karma yoga) and love and devotion (bhakti yoga).
By self-knowledge, by meditation on the God within, by working the works of God to balance karma and increase good karma and by giving loving devotion, we fulfill the four paths of the four lower bodies—the memory body, the mental body, the desire body and the physical body.
Krishna Christ Consciousness
We can see Arjuna as the archetype of the soul of each of us and Krishna as the charioteer of our soul, one with our Higher Self, our Holy Christ Self. We can see him occupying the position of the Holy Christ Self on the Chart of Your Divine Self, as the Mediator between the soul and the I AM Presence. He is universal Christ consciousness.
Heal Your Inner Child
When we send devotion to Krishna through mantra and sacred song, we open a highway of our love to the heart of Krishna, and he opens the other half of the highway. He sends back our devotion multiplied by his manyfold.
Lord Krishna has pledged to help heal the inner child as we sing mantras and bhajans to him.
