This is Ramananda, in this video I am in Perperikon Bulgaria, this is the place where Alexander the Great visited to get spiritual counsel from the wise men who lived there. This place has been constructed in the higher yugas, somewhere in descending treat yuga or dwapara yuga.
The yugas (Cycles of tyme) are ancient calculation of time that describe a cycle of human development that not only predicts highly advanced ages in the future, but indicates that they have occurred in the past as well. The yuga cycle includes ages less advanced than our own, ages full of ignorance and darkness, and ages so much more advanced than our own present age that we cannot fully comprehend them. And, as is implicit in the meaning of the word “cycle,” we learn that once mankind’s peak is reached, there is inevitable decline; and once mankind’s darkest point is reached, there is inevitable advancement.
The yugas are a tradition in India that goes back thousands of years. The great yoga guru Swami Sri Yukteswar does not base his understanding of the yugas on tradition alone, however. Sri Yukteswar’s insights spring from self-realization. His understanding of the yugas is born of deep intuition. Yet his explanation is clear and succinct, and, as he intended, approachable by the Western scientific mind.

Truth is we live many lives, the yoga scriptures teach that it takes from 5 to 8 million lives to reach even a human level. A soul goes through a long journey toward enlightenment changing many forms and physical bodies, until it learns its lessons and reaches the final stage of complete liberation from the wheel of birth and rebirth in the infinite bliss in God, or moksha as it called in Sanskrit.
In the Bhagavad Gita one of the greatest yoga scriptures when God in the form of Lord Krishna teaches yoga to his friend Arjuna when Arjuna was lamenting that he has to fight against and kill its own brothers and kinsmen then Lord Krishna says to him the following; my dear Arjuna, while speaking learned words, you are mourning for what is not worthy of grief. Those who are wise lament neither for the living nor for the dead. Never was there a time when I did not exist, nor you, nor all these kings; nor in the future shall any of us cease to be. As the embodied soul continuously passes, in this body, from boyhood to youth to old age, the soul similarly passes into another body at death. A sober person is not bewildered by such a change”. As the embodied soul continuously passes, in this body, from boyhood to youth to old age, the soul similarly passes into another body at death. A sober person is not bewildered by such a change. Those who are seers of the truth have concluded that of the nonexistent material body there is no endurance and of the eternal [the soul] there is no change. This they have concluded by studying the nature of both. That which pervades the entire body you should know to be Read More
Today I want to talk to you about how to remove your bad karma. But first, let me tell you what karma is. Well, karma is essentially action and the consequence of that action. Cause and effect. It’s one of the Divine laws that is part of the whole creation. Every physical it’s noting but just a grosser expression of some Divine spiritual law. For example the law of Physics of Newton, which you may very well know which says every action has its equal or opposite reaction, is just a grosser expression of the more subtle law of Karma. The law of gravity is based on love and attraction. Atoms in the Universe are attracted by each other and held together by Love. The great love of the infinite Spirit from which everything emanates.
In the Bhagavad Gita the one of the Greatest yoga scriptures of all times, Lord Krishna who represents God, teaches his friend Arjuna yoga who represents the yoga devotee, says;
He who knows Me as unborn and beginningless, as the great Lord of the worlds, he, among mortals, is undeluded; and he is liberated from all sins.
