Babaji

Babaji is One of the Representatives of God-the-Father, a Part of Him. From time to time, He incarnates on the Earth as an Avatar for the sake of helping people.

One of His incarnations took place at the end of 19th century; it was described by Yogananda in His book Autobiography of a Yogi.

Yogananda describes, in particular, how Babaji easily dematerialized and materialized again His body, when He wanted to move to some other place on the surface of the Earth; He also performed materialization of objects.

Babaji

His next incarnation was from 1970 to 1984 — again in Northern India, where He appeared before people by materializing a body of a young man. He lived in this body for 14 years.

From His last incarnation on the Earth, Babaji left people a concise and brilliant version of the Teachings of God, the “core” of which is the following formula: “Truth — Simplicity — Love — Karma Yoga (selfless service to humanity) — Abandonment of the lower self for the sake of merging with the Higher Self of God”.

He taught His followers how to organize better their lives in front of God. In particular, He said:

“Adhere to one principle — that of Truth, Simplicity, and Love. Live in truth, simplicity, and love and practice karma yoga.

“I have come to guide humanity to a higher Path. I do not belong to any particular religion, but respect all religions. I seek the elevation of all mankind.

“I do not recognize castes and races. I behold only one humanity. I am working for mankind while here.

“Kindle the light in yourself, then kindle it in others. Like spreading light by lighting one candle from another all around a room, so we should spread love from heart to heart.”

The last incarnation of Babaji is described in the books I Am Harmony by Radhe Shyam and Babaji the Unfathomable composed of the memories of people who visited His Ashram in Haidakhan.
