The message of Hairakhan Babaji (1970-1984) was simple and profound and can be summarized in the following three statements:
- Live in Truth, Simplicity and Love
- Serve the world in the spirit of Karma Yoga
- Repeat constantly God’s name (such as Om Nama Shivay)
Serve humanity and do actions in the spirit of Karma Yoga. Repeat constantly God’s Name (Japa Nama). Repeat Om nama Shivay or any other name of God you feel in your heart (e.g., Hare Krishna, Om Namo Narayanaya, Om Sri Jesus Christ Namaha, etc.)

Babaji’s message in his own words
extracts from the book: The Teachings of Babaji
Truth, Simplicity and Love
“To follow and demonstrate the path of Truth, Simplicity and Love is man’s supreme duty and the highest Yoga”.
”The creation is vast and them are many doctrines. Adhere to one principle – that of truth, simplicity and love. Live in truth, simplicity and love and practice Karma yoga”.
”Karma yoga is the highest form of yoga (mahayoga) and any advancement is done through karma alone”.
”By karma yoga great things can be achieved. You can bring heaven down to earth. You can change the whole of creation”.
”Karma yoga is the highest religious practice of this time and will liberate you. The scriptures declare that at the end of each Yuga only Karma Yoga will help you”.
”Many times I have told you that by karma yoga alone will I give you liberation”.
”I have told you before that there are many kinds of Yogas, but Karma Yoga is of supreme importance. Karma Yoga must come first, then other types of Yoga can be added. In the name of Lord Rama, advance and progress through Karma Yoga.”
”Diligent work is a quality of this path, for laziness is death on earth. Only by work can one claim victory over karma. All must strive to do their duty in the best way possible and not wander from that duty. Service to humanity is the first duty.
”During these times, inhumanity and laziness have increased, so it is important that you work hard and, not lose heart. Be brave, be industrious; work hard and have courage.”
”Until you breathe your last breath, you should not abandon Karma Yoga. Inaction is like death-that is why you must go on working, advancing, and making progress.”
Repetition of God’s Name (Japa Nama) – Om Nama Shivay
”Of greatest importance is that the repetition of God’s name increases daily. In this way, your heart and mind will be purified. Only then will you find God in yourself”.
”The mind can be purified only by japa. This is the only medicine for the disease of the mind. While your mind and heart are impure, how can God live in your heart? The water to clean your heart is the Name of God. So teach everyone to repeat the name of God everywhere”.
”I do not want idle people. Japa does not take the place of karma. Japa and work go together. You must be active in God’s work, like King Janaka who ruled his kingdom always with his mantra in his mind. Arjuna fought the Mahabharata battle, constantly remembering God’s name”.
”I do not want japa to be a pretext for idleness. Do japa with your work and be liberated. I do not want God’s name to be like stagnant, muddy water, but like sparkling, running water. Work and be Light; Repeat God’s name. With a concentrated mind always repeat God’s name.This “Om Nama Shivay” is like nectar; feed everyone with this nectar”.
”Shri Mahaprabhuji (Babaji) wishes that all words would disappear from this world, except for three – “Om Nama Shivay”. This is the original mantra. When Primordial Energy first appeared, the first mantra that She uttered from Her holy mouth was “Om Nama Shivay”.
‘.,While working you should always recite the mantra you like; you should always recite the mantra”.
‘Go on reciting Om Nama Shivay as much as you can”.
”I do not want japa to be a pretext for idleness. Do japa with your work and be liberated. I do not want God’s name to be like stagnant, muddy water, but like sparkling, running water. Work and be Light; Repeat God’s name. With a concentrated mind always repeat God’s name”.
”Those who repeat Om Nama Shivay, who do righteous, and those who are God – love, will be protected”.

Hairakhan Babaji’s messsage on how to live these critical times
Awake! Arise! Walk on with courage and bravery! Fight for truth!
Think good – Be good – Do good!
I want to create a world of brave people who face life as it comes.
Walk on with courage and bravery. Go on working to improve humankind and establish the Path of Truth. I want a creation full of brave and courageous people and you should make the next generation brave and courageous too.
There is no place for fear; people must work fearlessly in the world. When a man is fearless, no man can stand against him in battle either a battle in material life or in spiritual life. He is victorious in all the battles of life.
Everyone can attain courage and shakti (power/energy) through Karma Yoga. Impossibilities can be turned into possibilities by sheer hard work. Therefore, all of us must progress and advance via the Path of Karma – Yoga.
Time is rolling on with great speed. All countries have raised their heads, with mouths open, like cobras, waiting for the opportunity to swallow each other. At this critical time, courage and bravery are needed. Along with your Karma Yoga, you must repeat the Name of God within your heart.
Shri Mahaprabhuji wants the creation of very brave and courageous people in the world. If, with full faith and devotion to God and with a firm determination, people follow the Path of Truth, Simplicity and Love with karma yoga, they will reach their goal. When the whole world is burning with the fire of sins and sorrows and the flames are about to swallow the world, this is the only way by which humanity can be saved. Only he who has firm determination will survive this destruction.
I am against non-violence that makes a human being a coward. Fight for truth! To face life, you must have great courage every day.
I want to weed out the prevailing non-violence in the world. It is a cause of apathy and idleness. This non-violence has cooled the blood of men so that it has become like cold water. This attitude of non-violence produces a lack of discrimination between good and evil. Everyone should lead a life of bravery and courage. A man without courage is like a dead man. Life without courage is no life.
Today mankind has greatly degenerated. People are like puppets dancing for demonic leaders. We have to protect the people and lead them to progress. We must not lose courage.
You should be brave and courageous-afraid of nothing. You should not be afraid of being burned by fire or drowned by water. If you are brave and Courageous, nothing will harm you, not even the atomic bomb. You must be fearless for yourself and for all humanity.
At present, many atrocities are being committed in the world. Human beings are treated like animals. No one has had the courage to stand up against these atrocities but everyone should be brave and resist them. Everyone must be of firm determination and stick to what he believes to be true.
The great revolution is very near! There is no one in this world to stop it. This is a time of -great destruction. Everyone must become spiritually strong and courageous. He alone can survive who has spiritual courage. Without spiritual courage, one is dead though he is living. The time is coming very soon. So that is why you people all must work. And be brave. Everyone must consider himself a humble servant of the world.
You have to gather your courage, leave behind the fear of death to face life with hope and courage. Forget profit and loss – do not be concerned for praise or abuse- march on! You will have to walk through the blazing fire; only then can this world be saved.
I have spoken to you many times about the extent of the calamities to come. They will be so terrible that people without courage will die instantly from heart failure. We have to have the courage to face floods, fire and storms We have to go beyond the fear of death and the hope of life.
We must face the coming destruction in the world with courage. I want you to be very alert and careful. Be ready to face the world.
I want, and many times I have told you, that it is the best thing to live your life with courage and bravery. You must be always active and hardworking. I have told you this before also. I will give you liberation only through Karma, so you should not lag behind in your work. Be active and advance!
Many times I have told you that by karma yoga alone will I give you liberation.
To devotees I give Abhaya Dhan (the blessing of My protection), by which you will always be protected and should be fearless. I am responsible for you and your liberation.

Babaji’s Predictions Regarding MahaKranti
Note: Mahakranti can be translated as Great Revolution or Destruction
The change of the present which is full of turmoil, will be brought about by bloody revolution. Peace will return only after revolution reaches its zenith. In the aftermath of the revolution – which will be total; no country will be spared big or small – some countries will be totally erased, leaving no sign of their existence. In some 3% to 5% and up to maximum of 25% of the population will be spared and will survive. The destruction will be brought about by earthquakes, floods, accidents, collisions and wars. The destructive elements which were kept in check by Sri Babaji have been released to do their worst. Those who pray to their chosen divinity will not be affected.
In order not to provoke Me, you must be quiet at the time of catastrophe. You must concentrate on Om Namaha Shivaya. With this mantra you can win everything, because it is stronger than all the bombs.
During the times of the Mahabharata (Lord Krishna’s era) and the Ramayana (the earlier era of Lord Ram), there were wars that lasted for days; but now the change would take place in one day.(…) Babaji said that such a revolution was coming that nobody would know what was happening.
Question: Should one have children during these times? Answer: Having children is a law of nature; what will happen will happen, you cannot stop it.
It is the duty of everybody who comes to Babaji to spread and repeat that name of God and to spread His message of Truth, Simplicity and Love.(…) Those who remember Om Namaha Shivaya and Babaji are protected and saved.
Be strong in the time of great revolution which is coming. No one can stop the fire coming to the world now. The bells of great destruction are already ringing. The war will be such that people sleeping will die immediately. There will be atomic war. People will die immediately in their houses from gas and atomic and nuclear radiations. Teachings of Babaji, P.9-10.
The energy of Om Namaha Shivaya shall destroy all contradictory energies of hydrogen and atom bombs and will protect you.
A person might argue that when destruction is going to take place, why should I work? Why should I do any karma? But that is not right. One should work to his last breath.(…)
Up to this time, many incarnations of the Lord have brought war and violence to bring peace to the world. He is now preparing your hearts for the coming revolution, so you can face it peacefully. He has faith in no particular army; each human being is part of His army and He will face atomic bombs and cannons with the power of the Word of God. On one hand, certain countries are busy creating weapons and armaments; on the other hand, Babaji is nullifying these by having people loudly repeat the Word of God, bringing spiritual change.
He has come to the world to save it from destruction; otherwise, this world would have ended.
The great revolution is very near! There is no one in this world to stop it. This is a time of great destruction. Everyone must become spiritually strong and courageous. He alone can survive who has spiritual courage. Without spiritual courage, one is dead though he is living. The time is coming very soon. So that is why you people all must work. And be brave. Everyone must consider himself a humble servant of the world.
Now you see a sweet form of God, but in the future you will see a fierce form of God. Peace will come only after a Kranti (destruction/revolution). Babaji says a Kranti will come very soon and in the twinkling of an eye will spread over the world. This is why Babaji cautions us again and again to be alert.
Babaji again cautions us to be alert. A great revolution is coming. It is not of the ordinary type. Between heaven and earth this type of revolution has never been seen before. It will be astonishing and terrible. The destruction will be such that people will die as they work, sleep or stand. People will be killed by gas; buildings will remain but the danger is to humanity. Babaji reminds us to be prepared.
Those who repeat Om Namaha Shivaya, who are righteous, and those who are God-loving, will be protected.
As you have known for some time, the world will change. The lazy person is a burden to the world. That is why I tell you to work hard and have others do the same.(…)
Times will change, so you must resolve in your hearts to be industrious and courageous. Those who are strong like iron are fit to flourish. To become strong does not mean to become harsh and heartless. To become strong means to grow beyond pleasure and pain: beyond heat and cold.
This, more than others, is an era (yuga) of great destruction. Man has become enslaved by his lower nature. I have come to guide humanity to a higher path. I do not belong to any particular religion, but respect all religions. I seek elevation of all mankind. The higher self in people must be developed and enthrallment with the lower nature destroyed. It will be destroyed in countries all around the world by changing the hearts of mankind. Do you understand? Now that you understand, you must live in Truth, Simplicity and Love, and take this message into the world.
(…) In this Yuga, the destruction will come within the flicker of an eye. This destruction will be such that those sleeping will be left sleeping, those standing will be left standing. The whole world will be transformed like this. In this destruction everything will finish; nothing will remain the same. You should therefore leave your attachment to the world. Only repetition of God’s name will be useful for you; otherwise it is hopeless. (…)
(…) in America people will get a form of disease which they will be unable to stop and which will cause death. Some will vomit themselves to death, still others will be bleed to death from cuts which will not stop bleeding. There is no sure prevention and there will be no cure. He recommends fasting as the best means of avoidance.
A change in the world is coming soon. Change is nothing new; it is the law of nature. (…) We must face the coming destruction with courage. I want you to be very alert and careful. Be ready to face the world.
(…) This revolution will set fire to the whole world. Only those will live who have adventure in their hearts, those who are wed to truth. You should all go forward with courage and adventure. This is why you should proceed with your duty always foremost in your mind. (…)
(…) A great revolution is coming. Wherever you live, be prepared to face the Revolution. (…) Only that person can take part who is prepared to face death, who is prepared to die at any moment. Only the man who is daring and has courage, who is prepared to die for the sake of righteousness, is fit to face the Revolution. The whole universe will be involved in this Mahakranti (Great Revolution). It is not limited to India. I am warning everyone in the universe. In whatever area one may live, he must spread this message. To whatever profession a person may belong, whatever may be his activity, he must take part in this Revolution. This will be the greatest Revolution in the history of the world – so all of you must be alert and make others alert.
In the world today fire is bursting out on one side, while nectar flows on the other. You must decide if you choose fire or nectar. While flames of the fire are spreading, it is up to us to save ourselves and others. We must be alert. At this moment people are jumping into the fire because of their ignorance. (…) Wake up yourselves and others. Control your mind and have firm determination. (…) Wherever you go, be prepared to save people. Be firm like a rock, deep and serious like the sea. (…)
(…) the Revolution will occur simultaneously everywhere in the world. Countries which believe that they can save themselves through the newly invented weapons can forget this thought, for they will not be able to do so. (…) Superpowers like Russia and America will not be able to face the fire even with their new weapons. Nothing that they have invented will be of any use. Everything can be destroyed. (…) For those who are true devotees of Babaji, the flames of fire will become cool. Face the fire and it will turn to ice. This requires control of mind and a firm determination. Everyone will have to face the fire.
All of you must bring alertness into your lives. The revolutionary spirit which I want to inspire in the hearts of all of you is for the peace of the world. This revolution takes place for the sake of world peace. This is my sole aim and main task. (…) When unrighteousness prevails in the world this is the only path possible.
I think the great revolution is very near. Be prepared for it, leaving behind the fear of death and the hope of life. I think it is necessary now that there is a great revolution because without such a revolution there can be no peace. In all epochs it has been like that – only after bloodshed peace was obtained. (…) .
(…) Phuro! – Be inspired! This revolution will be so fierce that it will melt the hearts of men. This Revolution will annihilate the trees and leaves in the world. as the result of nuclear destruction. (…).
A great Revolution shall come to the world. Destruction is a most necessary aspect of creation. At all times, peace was established only after revolution. For many Yugas, the earth has been crying out for blood. The whole earth has to be bathed in blood at least once. This desire of the earth will be fulfilled. The Revolution will come quickly, in seconds, and spread everywhere. (…) No power in the world can stop the Revolution coming now.
Today the world is playing with fire. We have to be ready to face fire, water and great storms and not be shaken. We have to go beyond the hope of life and the fear of death. Whatever happens we must go ahead. Then only can we benefit the world. We have to bring the path of karma into the light. Now the world is in deep darkness. The Revolution spreading in this world can be controlled by karma alone.
You have to be strong and capable of facing these coming difficult times. Oh, youth! Remove all differences from your minds and unite like one great chain. We have to do good, not bad, for the whole world. You have to gather your courage, leave behind the fear of death to face life with hope and courage. Forget profit and loss – do not be concerned for praise or abuse – march on! You will have to walk through the blazing fire; only then can this world be saved.
(…) The calamities which are coming to this world are unavoidable. Only he who has strong determination to do good acts and who is strongly devoted to God can survive this destruction.
You must all step together and form a great international organization – bigger than anything organized in the history of the world. I do not want you all to be ruined or destroyed. A great Revolution is going to take place such as never before occurred in the world. The hearts of the people who read or hear the history of this Revolution will melt. This is the era of great destruction – no other time can be compared to this. The Revolution will last not for minutes but only for some seconds. The countries which have invented these destructive weapons will themselves be destroyed. (…) Only he who has surrendered completely at the feet of Shri Mahaprabhuji (God) is secure.
Calamities will fall not just on one country but on the whole universe; the whole universe is in danger. The terrible times which are approaching will engulf the whole world; the whole universe will be enveloped in this destruction. (…)
