I’ll give you another illustration. Yogananda was alive as a boy and His friend says, “Come on, you are initiated, don’t tell me you can eat anything.” And Yogananda says, “No, but by the grace of God’s Consciousness, it’s possible.” He says, “I still am a vegetarian.” So the boy says, “Alright, you tell me that God is in everything?” Yogananda said, “Yes.” “You mean to tell me that little mess that that dog puked up there, God is in it?” Yogananda says, “Yes.” He says, “You mean to tell me you can reach forward and eat it?” He says, “By the grace of God working in my consciousness, yes.” He says, “If you eat it, then I’ll join you.” And Yogananda ran up, picked the stuff up and start eating. The boy started to vomit and He grabbed the boy by the head and pushed it into his mouth, make sure he tasted it and when he did, the boy was pleasantly surprised, it was the most pleasant tasting food he ever had. That convinced him at what degree the Master was in in Consciousness. It cured the boy, but the boy became a lifelong disciple years after. He could not stand the shock that a student of his age and Yogananda of His age could be a teacher, but it was not until Yogananda entered the Swami order that the man came back a grown man, a doctor, that came on a visit to this country doing research, that went back in humble respect and realized that he was living with a Master. You see it was said that Jesus took a dove of clay while others were playing and threw His and His flew away when He was a child. In the consciousness, yes, but nevertheless when He was a full grown man then the Consciousness was truly working. Many of us come back into the world with an awakened Consciousness at early age and can do things. If we take advantage at that point, we’ll never go forward. If we do not take advantage and wait until that Consciousness is set and mature, then we can do anything, Free-man or Lord of Themselves, not until then.

The Swami was able to read his mind and He said to the boy, “You think you can eat what I can eat?” The boy broadened up his shoulders, looked at the Master and he says, “Yes, I can eat.” “Ok, next time when we stop you will eat with me.” The next time they stopped they happened to be invited by a blacksmith and He told the blacksmith to give these disciples fruits, nuts, and vegetables and He in turn went over to the blacksmith’s pit where the fire was and started picking up hot charcoals, molten lead and nails, and start eating. Then He turned to the boy and says, “Come on, let’s eat.” You know what the disciple did? He took a fast run to the back room. He realized he was not there, but out of his ignorance he thought, by looking upon a human being, that he could measure up in consciousness. The Swami was a realized man, but He didn’t do that to go around and tell people that he could eat nails or fire or burning charcoals to convince them. It was that lesson for that boy. That boy got the lesson and he was healed. So it is not starting out to say that you should eat meat or not eat meat. It is what level of consciousness you are moving in. So if you’re a beginner on the path it is wise to gradually eliminate from your diet until you have come to some degree of realization where everything is possible.

Jesus did not eat the meat products while He was in the body. Only reference of His life having ate any flesh was after resurrection when they said someone fed them a piece of honeycomb and fish to His disciples and did eat. A Master can eat anything when He’s realized, but until that time He does not eat everything. There was a Swami that was in India not too long ago, it’s about 100 years ago. He was visiting a home in India and even in India they don’t know that Swamis, all of them don’t know that Swamis don’t eat meat. This may seem strange that a country where meat eating is not considered the spiritual form of food, yet they did not know. They fed the Swami with His students a dish of food and in it was meat. The Swami looked, He didn’t say anything, He ate. Now if you were reporting Him I’d say, “the Swami ate the meat so it’s good for us to eat the meat.” Equally true there was a boy in the group who said, “No wonder Swamiji has all the power to walk in the midday sun. He got the strength, He eats the meat. We are His students, we eat only fruits and vegetables and nuts. We don’t have pep, we don’t seem to be able to get up… keep up with Him.”

So they used to say “mother cow,” “brother goat,” “sister sheep,” and if you live on the reservations they do call these animals brother, sister, and mother like that. Now Western man is grown up into an environment where he eats meat without that type of association. To say that he should up and dump it to become a vegetarian overnight is not practical. I’ve tried every form of diet, the extreme to the non-extreme, I’ve found that on the spiritual path a simple diet helps. Meat has a tendency to… up to a certain point in your spiritual life in your meditation you can eat meat. After a certain level of meditation you can’t eat meat. I have an example. There was a man who got on a rooftop in the early days of Jesus, when Jesus passed on, and you may be familiar with his name, his name is Peter and he had a vision and he was supposed to visit someplace that they ate meat. He was then a vegetarian and saw all these things pouring into this sheet of cloth that was supposed to be eaten as food and he said, “Lord these things are unclean, can’t eat them.” But then he hear the consciousness saying, “Eat, everything I have made is clean.There is no unclean, providing.” At that level in meditation anyone who meditates he will see the astral forms of the animals that he had consumed or might consume. Here is the misguiding aspect of consciousness. The negative force of the consciousness can trick you at that moment to let you believe that if you consume the form, you can go higher up into God by telling you, “Everything I have made is clean.” Not until we are fully realized can we vouch for that experience. When we are in deep realization, we will not be pulled down by the object or the substance we eat, we will not come back to the lower tendencies.

Question: What about the cows that run around and eat just what they want.
Adano: How many cows do they have in proportion per capita of the population that they can afford to butcher them all up and eat them. They don’t have that tremendous ranching program going on in India, just a few in straggly little areas, but the reasons why the Hindus don’t eat meat, for centuries they have been following a spiritual path and they know that the human being and the animal have a bond. A human being can communicate with an animal and an animal can mimic and react like a human being and through the mimicry and the reaction, they have come to accept the animal as humanoid, close to the human level. The cow they accept as a second mother when the mother can’t give milk no more. Now they don’t eat the dog, some places they do. Some places they don’t eat the sheep. Some places they don’t eat the pig. Some places they do eat the pig. These are all varying changes of geographical calamities that cause them to be like that, but centuries ago they accepted the animal being close to human, therefore they would not consume a brother.

Question: I know that Jesus said that (can’t be heard)… the most humble person is most likely to be the Master but would not identify Himself as Master while in the body.
Adano: No, alright, the Master is servant truly. Is He the servant by providing food for you? Is He the servant by bathing you?
Question: If that be your need, it might be so.
Adano: Then every Master has done it. He provides food for those who don’t have. He provides homes for those that don’t have. He provides companionship. He provides liberation. Truly He is the servant in every form because there is nothing you can give Him. He will always give you what you cannot begin to carry, more than you can carry. Even before you ask He will pour it into your lap, that’s why He’s Master.
Question: But there are many Masters among us for there are many who do this.
Adano: Yes.
Question: We need to live on the principle of love then (can’t be heard)…
Adano: Yes. Now you know what Master is.
Question: I would like to know about one’s diet. In India they don’t eat meat and when people study Yoga in the West, is it right to change over to a vegetarian diet in this climate. If one eats meat would it add more to their animalistic nature?
Adano: I’ll have to answer you like Brother Thomas who I met in South Carolina. He said, “You know people ask me why I’m a vegetarian. So I said don’t ask me why I’m a vegetarian because I can go into all the pros and cons of the technical ends of it and all the pros and cons of not taking life. The only reason why I’m a vegetarian is it’s cheaper that way.” Let’s take the economics of India, why they are vegetarians.

Question: Isn’t it rather conceited for an individual to identify himself as a Master or a Saint while in the body. It seems that this sort of thing would not be information that’s given to people in the body.
Adano: Is it not conceitful for an individual to call himself a Master, to identify himself as a Master in the body? He who says he’s a Master is not and he who says he’s not a Master is not.
Question: Then who’s a Master?
Adano: He who is Master of himself.
Question: And who is to determine who has mastered himself?
Adano: God.
Question: So then it cannot be identified in the body who is a Master and who is not.
Adano: Yes. He has an unusual ability when you’re in His presence, to answer your questions before you ask them.
Question: (can’t be heard) they are not of love, then they are not of God.
Adano: His questions and His answers are always embedded in truth because He has lived them and will demonstrate them to you if you’re in doubt. He first must be able to walk the road before He can say or give an answer. Otherwise, He keeps His peace and that He gives you all the time while you are in His presence.

If you look back in the lives of all the Masters who died, very few die in Their beds. They’ve all died a violent death by the involvement with the disciple. There is the great Master, Guru Arjan, who was literally butchered to death by the involvement of His disciples where He came to teach them in Punjab. Buddha died by poisoning. Krishna died by being taken for a beautiful deer because His skin was blue. The auric light was so bright that the man who was hunting thought it was a beautiful deer walking and shot Him. So we don’t know of any real Master leaving this earth plane dying in bed. The involvement of their disciples determine their death. It seems tragic from the Western point that Jesus involvement brought a death on a cross, but the cross is not a Christian symbol. It was used centuries ago before by the Chaldeans, (can’t be heard) emphasize Christianity. Crucifixion was not a normal way to kill a man. It was only reserved for criminals, but even then they never nailed him, they would tie him on the post or the cross and let him hang out there and die a slow death and in the slowness of the death, they would gradually break the limbs to speed up the pain.
Question: As Christians experience illumination when they accept Jesus as Savior you’re saying they’re accepting Him as Master, would you make that statement?
Adano: Yes, the word Savior and Master means the same because it comes from the word Guru, Messiah, He who lifts up, He who saves you from your frustrations. What is a Master for and what is a disciple? What constitutes the disciple? When you are totally frustrated that’s the only time you’re gonna need help, but as long as you don’t have frustrations you’re gonna think you’re pretty smart and get out of it yourself until you find yourself in a mental blind alley. It’s like the wild horse. He’s pretty smart as long as they keep chasing him, he’s gonna run the whole arroyo and all of the whole plain till they pin him up into one corner, then he’s frustrated and he may be lucky if he can turn around and charge into his opponents and throw them off guard and get away. Maybe when we can turn around in our mental whirl (world) and face our ids (ideas) just like that wild horse and surprise ourcells (ourselves), then we are free. A Master comes to us because He has solved these mental blocks, these behavioral patterns, achieving that total freedom by living it. He extends that to the student or the disciple so that he can turn now, solve that same frustration and come out. Otherwise there is no need for the Master. That’s why Jesus said, “The student should be as the Master.” The Master is frustration less, but the student is frustration total. You see?
