Adi Da Samraj
DEVOTEE: Is there something different about Spiritual practice in this time? Traditionally, it is has been said that it is more difficult to practice in the Kali Yuga.1
AVATAR ADI DA SAMRAJ: It makes absolutely no difference what yuga it is.
DEVOTEE: So this time is not different than any other time?
AVATAR ADI DA SAMRAJ: Absolutely not. This “late-time” (or “dark” epoch) has its particular signs and characteristics, but you should not call it any kind of “bad yuga” in order to justify your weakness in practice of the Way I Reveal and Give. Relative to what is required in order to practice, all yugas are, fundamentally, the same. The fundamental process of ego-transcendence is always required, no matter what the characteristics of the times, or the characteristics of the experience of the individual at any time. And, even though the present epoch is relatively “dark” and the time is “late”, I Am here!
I have Destroyed the impediment in this “late-time”-by My Avataric Divine Descent and Avataric Divine Self-“Emergence”, here and every where in the entire Cosmic domain. Therefore-now, and forever hereafter-it does not make the slightest bit of difference what yuga it is, because I Am here-now, and forever hereafter. Because I Am here, the “circumstance” of necessary ego-transcending practice is the relationship to Me. That is certainly the case for all who heart-recognize Me, and who heart-respond to Me by embracing the only-by-Me Revealed and Given Way of Adidam.
Because of your relationship to Me, the so-called “Kali Yuga” has no negative power over you-none whatsoever. You are not bound by some sort of mysterious vibration of yuga-made ignorance, such that you cannot heart-respond to Me. For My true devotee, all time is-now, and forever hereafter-My time.
I Am here. I have Given you My Avataric Divine Word, My Complete Avataric Divine Self-Revelation. I have Told you and Shown you Who I Am. The only question is whether you will rightly, truly, fully, and fully devotionally recognize Me and rightly, truly, fully, and fully devotionally respond to Me. To heart-recognize Me and heart-respond to Me, you have to prove it, you have to change your life-action. You have to do what the Way of Adidam requires-and not ignore Me, not deceive yourself and one another, not be “gurus” of yourselves.
If I Am your Guru, be Mastered by Me. That is It. Perform every detail of your life according to My Avataric Divine Word.
DEVOTEE: In that case, Beloved Bhagavan, do all Your devotees need to ask You what they should do?
AVATAR ADI DA SAMRAJ: Absolutely! Each of you must give up your self-“guruing”, your ego-position, and always ask Me about every thing – but that does not require you to come into the room with Me bodily, and speak to Me bodily, face to face.
DEVOTEE: That is what I wanted to know, because sometimes devotees wonder about this.
AVATAR ADI DA SAMRAJ: Fundamentally, to live your life by “asking” Me what to do means that you live according to My Word as Law-as Divine Law. That Avataric Divine Word is My (now, and forever hereafter) Revealed and Given (and Fully Written) Wisdom-Instruction in My Twenty-Three Divine “Source-Texts”-Which Instruction must be supported by the force of the culture of My devotees, serving you in your life-process of responsively conforming to My Avataric Divine Word. In My now (and forever hereafter) Revealed and Given Divine “Source-Texts”, I have, in every detail, already answered your questions-and, in the Form of Those Twenty-Three Divine “Source-Texts”, I Am (now, and forever hereafter) here and ready to Instruct you.
1. Kali Yuga
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Kali Yuga : (Devanagari, lit. “age of (the male demon) Kali”, or “age of vice”) is the last of the four stages that the world goes through as part of the cycle of yugas described in the Indian scriptures. The other ages are Satya Yuga, Treta Yuga and Dvapara Yuga. According to the Surya Siddhanta, an astronomical treatise that forms the basis of all Hindu and Buddhist calendars, Kali Yuga began at midnight (00:00) on 18 February 3102 BCE  in the proleptic Julian calendar, or 23 January 3102 BC in the proleptic Gregorian calendar. This date is also considered by many Hindus to be the day that Krishna left earth to return to his abode. Most interpreters of Hindu scriptures believe that earth is currently in Kali Yuga. Some, such as Swami Sri Yukteswar,and Paramhansa Yogananda believe that it is now near the beginning of Dvapara Yuga. The Kali Yuga is traditionally thought to last 432,000 years.
Hindus and Sikhs believe that human civilization degenerates spiritually during the Kali Yuga,which is referred to as the Dark Age because in it people are as far removed as possible from God. Hinduism often symbolically represents morality (dharma) as a bull. In Satya Yuga, the first stage of development, the bull has four legs, but in each age morality is reduced by one quarter. By the age of Kali, morality is reduced to only a quarter of that of the golden age, so that the bull of Dharma has only one leg.
Kali Yuga is associated with the apocalyptic demon Kali, not to be confused with the goddess Kali (read as Kaalee) (these are unrelated words in the Sanskrit language). The “Kali” of Kali Yuga means “strife, discord, quarrel, or contention.”
