So many salient thoughts about the Guru-devotee relationship are touching my
heart and there is so much devotees need to learn. Let me begin. I will put
it into a question/answer form:
Q 1 What is a Guru? Particularly, what is MY Guru TO ME?
A YOUR Guru, the One God gave you that you have met on earth, is the one
GOD WORKS THROUGH FOR YOUR BENEFIT. Everyone needs some sort of touch in
time and space, and this is it. You might just imagine that your
relationship with God is of no need for an earthly link, think again. Think
of your failures and your dire needs, for which you seek all sorts of
remedies of the earth. You need help, because everyone needs help until
they get there, to where YOUR GURU IS AT. Now from that lofty place in the
mystical realm, your Guru channels Power for you from the Gifts that she
has, the Anointing.
Q 2 How do I know that this Guru is the right one for me? Why not another
one someplace in India or Tibet or somewhere else?
A The grass is always greener far away, isn't it? You know your Guru is
right for you because YOU HAVE MET HER and you related to her, and she spoke
with you and is willing to help you. WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT?
Q 3 What must I do to access the power of the Guru? Is she there like a
wish-fulfilling cow, and I just have to milk her like a 'cash cow?' (Lol)
Is she there like a Christmas tree, and I just have to bend down and pick up
the gifts under the tree? Is she there like a well, that I visit, put my
pitcher in and draw water? In other words, by simply contacting her, do I
get her power automatically, telling her my problems and needs, in fact,
even without contacting her, it is said that THE GURU KNOWS MY NEEDS AND
ANSWERS ME WITHOUT PHYSICAL CONTACT. Is this true?
A It is true to some degree, but also, after you meet some obligations. Now
when you first meet your Guru, she gives you freely and absolutely with no
strings attached, you do not have to give her anything. That of course
depends on the Guru, but this one asks for nothing ahead of time, some Gurus
demand Prasad (a gift, however small) when you arrive - that is their
decision. There is nothing wrong with demanding a gift first, it will weed
out a large number of phonies - but it might also prevent the weak, the
doubting and the very poor from giving it a chance, so GuruRasa wants to
take the safest way of helping everyone so she asks for nothing. The
problem is, after the devotees get the initial Shakti Kundalini, (Holy
Spirit Power) the Teachings, the Guidance and they are to some degree
strengthened or enlivened, they do not remember the Guru in their giving.
They fail to reciprocate, not knowing that they must give back, however
little. They take the Power for granted with no gratitude, with no show of
return at all. This is why the Guru MUST REMIND the devotees periodically
that THEY MUST GIVE BACK.
Q 4 It does not seem fair to me that I have to give back. After all, it is
God that gave to me, not a physical person, because God lives in the Guru
and works through her. God does not charge Rasa, so Rasa should not charge
me, not even a small token, because that token is a lot of trouble. After
all, writing letters, mailing them, takes time and energy, even if it is a
token donation. She is putting me to some trouble, and I don't like it.
Not only that, I am feeling fine. Yes, she did help me months ago, but now
I am feeling great, and so, why should I go to the trouble of sitting down,
writing and addressing her a letter, and sending her a minimum token
A What a devotee does not understand is although you DO NOT FEEL the
Anointing going out to you, there is a REAL, VISIBLE, TANGIBLE POWER that is
going to you on a regular basis, WHEN YOU NEED IT.
Note~! Of course, I have noticed, that devotees, when they sink into the
flesh, into DISOBEDIENCE and try and lead a secretive life IN SIN, away,
they think, from the eyes of the Guru, they sink deeper into the mire of
darkness and error, falling and falling lower into mortal sense and its
misery. At times like this, the Guru seems FAR AWAY, NONEXISTENT, but it is
BECAUSE THE DEVOTEE LEFT THROUGH DISOBEDIENCE, TURNING HIS OR HER BACK ON
Consider, also, the initial Power you received from the Guru when you first
met. This power ENABLED you to get better, to do better in every way, and
you are benefiting from her work.
Q 5 Did the Guru actually pay for the Anointing, or was it given freely?
After all, it is said,
'Freely you have received, freely you should give.'
A The Guru PAID for the Anointing that she has because no person will ever
receive a monumental Gift like that without first EARNING it, which means
she WORKED and SUFFERED for it. Of course, when she, as an innocent child
(or in times of disability, times of being flat out), first started out, she
had nothing to give, and grace was freely given. As one gets stronger,
something is expected, and grace does not always come without a price tag,
the price being suffering, hardship and the merits of giving; giving work,
surrendering, practicing virtues, making sacrifices and so forth. If a
person MERELY COASTS ON THE GRACE FREELY GIVEN ITS KARMA RUNS OUT, AND THERE
IS NO MORE, AND THE PERSON ENTERS INTO A TIME OF STAGNATION AND THIS MIGHT
EVEN LEAD TO A TIME OF LOSING GRACE AND DESOLATION, AS GRACE IS SOMETHING
ONE MUST WORK AT CONSTANTLY.
A OK, perhaps I have failed, but why? I think I am being fairly good, I
haven't done anything terrible. Why am I not stronger and better, though?
A You lack zeal, you lack gratitude, and you have sloth or laziness in the
spiritual life. People are so deluded when they think overt physical sins
like stealing and killing are the only things that separate them from God.
For the just or the righteous, it gets much more stringent. (Ordinary
people, btw, who never do 'big' sins as those mentioned, nevertheless, tread
the broad highway to Hell, simply going along with the rest of the world
until the iron bars close all around them, imprisoning them in Hell, and
then the flames come up, forever incarcerating them in woe and misery.)
When we speak of you, the devotee, we speak of ONE WHO WANTS TO IMPROVE AND
COME CLOSER TO GOD, IN FACT, TO BECOME A SAINT IN PERFECT UNION WITH GOD.
This requires an exacting discipline, it is not easily won.
Q 6 Then what exactly does this giving of mine signify? Surely the Guru is
not in dire need of that token donation of mine, the Guru is not desperate,
A The Guru is not desperate, it is you who is in desperate need of
exercising your charity, your will power, your discipline in the spiritual
life. It is hard to tether and train the flesh; it takes some 'violence'
against nature, and your human nature, which is selfish and slothful, works
against you. When you give in to nature, the instincts, the flesh, you
become weaker and weaker spiritually. (I must add here, this does not apply
to animals at all, animals suffer terribly especially within the world of
people, and they just by living, suffer greatly, just to feed themselves and
protect themselves against the elements and against predators. Most humans
have no inkling of that kind of suffering, certainly not those in a
'civilized' society, although there are countries where they do suffer as
badly as do animals.) IF YOU DO NOTHING AGAINST THE FLESH, AND DO NOT
EXERCISE YOUR WILL POWER, THE FLESH WILL DRAG YOU DOWN AND YOU WILL REMAIN
IN THE LOWEST CHAKRAS, FILLED WITH MISERY. You think giving into the flesh
is the easy way out, but it is the hard way, eventually, because doom will
come upon you for giving into it.
Q 7 OK, I do understand and agree with you, GuruRasa, but I am doing well
now and I just want to get on with my life. Why can't I just move on? It's
not that I don't love you, I do, but I want to think about others, like my
significant other and other people I like, and you helped me once, but why
do I have to remember you all the time?
A You do not have to remember me all the time - ONLY IF YOU WANT MY POWER
TO CONTINUE BEING DOWNLOADED INTO YOU. If you feel you have outgrown what I
have to give and need no more of it, by all means, move on and God bless
you. But knowing human nature, and most people, I know that you need this
power. I also know you are UNAWARE of where you are receiving some of the
good luck, grace, Power and Light that is streaming into you when you need
it. By cutting it off, you will see the difference, and perhaps then you
will value this Power.
YOU NEED TO VALUE THIS POWER THAT I AM GIVING YOU, YOU NEED TO APPRECIATE
IT, BE GRATEFUL, AND RECIPROCATE WITH MORE THAN OCCASIONAL SWEET WORDS.
Q 8 You sound like my mother now, nagging me. I guess you are my spiritual
mother, and frankly, I don't like it. I don't feel free.
A Fine, then. Be free. Be free now to give in to your cold heartedness,
which will lead to sins and then vices, and then you will either have a long
Purgatory or even Hell. Is that what you want? Because that is what will
I have watched my devotees sink into the quagmire when they separated
themselves from me, it is inevitable.
Q 9 Again, I do not think you are being fair, for after all, I have my
personal relationship with God, and you are saying that if I break off with
you, I am breaking off with God? I still do my regular shtick with God, I
pray, and I go to church, even, so how am I leaving God?
A I have heard that one before. It is the devotee who is deluding himself,
I have seen it again and again. He deludes himself he is right with God by
saying about 60 seconds worth of prayer when he needs help, and he even goes
to church, and yet, he is falling into sin all the while and getting deeper
into his pride and ego.
You must understand that when you have a Guru, you have no choice but to
obey the Guru, or you will pay the price, because THIS IS THE WAY GOD
HERSELF ARRANGED IT FOR YOU. Perhaps this is hard to understand, but try
and believe, that when God reaches you through Form, a Guru, WHAT YOU DO TO
THE GURU YOU DO TO GOD, for God resides in the Guru waiting to see what you
will do to Her if She was made Flesh, and what you do to Her, believe me,
you do to God.
Ignore the Guru, you ignore God.
Be ungrateful to the Guru, you are ungrateful to God.
Disobey the Guru, you disobey God. (This includes keeping secrets about your
'love life.' But by the same token, when you treat your Guru well, YOU DO
THE SAME FOR GOD.
Q 10 Frankly, I don't want to hurt your feelings, but I don't think I am
receiving anything from you. I think it was my own faith that helped me in
the beginning, when you helped me, and I think it has been my own faith that
helped me all along, and I don't think I am actually receiving anything from
you, and so, I do not want to be put to the trouble of sending you a note or
letter once a month, with a token donation or a request if I cannot afford
the dollar, that you continue sending your Power. It is such a bother to me
and I am not going to do it.
A OK, if you are receiving nothing then it will not bother you at all that
by the end of three weeks, those devotees who have heard my rules and do not
comply, all Power and Light that I am sending them will be truncated. You
may not feel anything tangible, as in your physical senses, but it may show
up in your dreams or if you are sensitive, it may touch your inner senses,
otherwise you might not be aware of this. The date for the cutoff will be
April 25, 2007, about three weeks from now, which gives everyone ample
Now about faith, indeed, your faith did help at all times and is always
needed in the relationship with God and Guru, but your faith alone is not
sufficient, there has to be a God or Guru to download or extend the grace
into you! Faith is how you open your mind and heart to God and Guru, but
God and Guru has the Power and the Grace! Of the flesh, no matter how much
faith you have, you can do nothing.
Discipline is Good for the Soul
I know what it is, my devotees are like humans everywhere, from before the
time of Jesus until now, the flesh is weak. Without discipline, and that
includes rebukes, humans go astray quickly. How many of you enjoy the
discipline of the following:
1 Going on a strict diet and losing weight
2 Stop your addictions to prescription or street drugs, to cigarettes and
3 Exercise every day! Jog, lift weights, stretch, bike ride, go to the
4 Pray and read spiritual books
5 Refrain from excessive sexual fantasies and such things as pornography,
masturbation or sex outside of marriage
This is a short list of things you could discipline yourselves on, and check
off which of these you have trouble with, I bet more than one, women
included. This shows that you are SOFT, if you have trouble with three or
more of these things, and it proves you need to curb your appetites and
tighten up your discipline.
Now anyone who comes along and rebukes you along these lines, harasses you
or requests something of you that you do not want to do, then you are
resentful. These feelings come from PRIDE and EGO, not from the good part
As your Guru, I need to discipline you, at the very least reminding you of
the True Life of spirituality and God, and that life MAKES SACRIFICES,
humbles oneself, accepts life as it is without excessive desires for
cushions and luxuries, forgives others, even your enemies (yes, I do love my
enemies and forgive them all, including all the flame wars...people were
born again, rose to a higher level, when my shakti went to them in battle),
struggles daily against sin and vice and toward virtue. Are you doing so?
That is my word to you for now, and I will not grieve which way you go, for
I have to say this to you and if you leave, you will learn your lesson, and
if you stay you will be blessed, so either way, something good will come out
A WORD ABOUT BEING AN AVATAR
Some of my devotees believe I am an Avatar, an Incarnation of God, but
others doubt this as they believe that Avatars are rare, such as Jesus
Christ, Lord Krishna and Buddha, and so they think it is highly unlikely
that Rasa or anyone they know could be such. I have prayed on this and this
is what God said to me,
'I send many Avatars to earth, at all times, but they do not fulfill their
destiny, because each one receives a human nature, which is so dull, and so
filled with delusion and sloth, that many of these chosen souls give in to
the lower nature and forget their great destiny. An Avatar is not forced in
any way to meet his or her destiny as a Great Soul, but only by intense
struggle does such a person meet their great destiny. They who became known
suffered immensely, and they are the famous ones that you know, but you do
not know the less famous ones, and you certainly do not know the ones that
Infinite Love, GuruRasa
