Now Jesus whipped the money changers out of the temple. That’s cruelty, but He was doing it to raise their level of awareness. They don’t do acts just to please Themselves or to please society. They’re doing it for the higher motive, the higher ideal of Emergence to restore the balance in the Being, to reunite him with the Divinity. So we can’t say what They tell us not to do and They do it… you know that’s the old cliche, when I was a priest, “Don’t do what I do, do what I tell you to do.” But it doesn’t work like that in a Master’s life. In the average man it could be, “Don’t do what I tell you to do” and then I go ahead and do it, but not in a Master’s life. When He does it rest assure that individual or whatever is done is raised back to its Divinity. Yes?
Question: May I ask you what were these ants supposed to evolve?
Adano: Anytime a Master takes the life of a lower creature or any form, it’s raised back to a human being. It gains that opportunity to reunite itself through God in human form.
Audience Question: So all these ants became human beings?
Adano: Yes. They merit, they merit a human incarnation.
Question: Without the help of God or love… (can’t be heard)

Now there was a man who was dying and he wanted to see the Master of this particular ashram in India, but he couldn’t because he was in hospital and people came to intercede. They say they can’t afford to keep him in the hospital, they don’t have the money and he’s old, but “he lingers on only because of love for You.” “Why don’t You release him and let him go?” The Master said, “Alright.” He visited the man in the hospital and He says, “You want to go home?” He says, “Yes Master.” “Then go on.” And the man died instantly. There was another one who climbed up a mountain searching for a Master called by the name of Babaji and he said to Him, “Alas I have found you. Without you I cannot get to the gates of heaven.” And the Master said to him, “In your present condition I can’t accept you as a disciple.” He said, “If You don’t accept me I’ll kill myself. I’ll jump over this mountain and kill myself.” The Master just looked at him and says, “Jump.” And he did jump and everyone says, “That’s a cruel act. That’s taking life.” And the Master says, “Bring his body now.” It was all mangled up and He touched it and He says, “Now you’re free, you’re immortal. No longer do you have to face death. Now you can be one of Us.” So when we say if a Master kills, He is God incarnate. Every act He performs is to raise you back to your true Divinity. Freeing you again from the Involvement. Yogananda was alive in the body and someone told me this. There was a ant nest in the pathway of the driveway of Mount Washington estate and everyday He would come along and look at the ants building their nest and one day He says, “You know, soon people will walk on your heads and you wouldn’t evolve and I might as well do it for you right now.” And they said Master squashed up all the ant nest. Now would you say that’s a cruel act or killing? The Involvement.

You know, Peter, James, and John dropped everything and ran after Jesus. There are lots of people doing it today. They’re dropping everything and running after their Masters or their Teachers. This is what it’s all about. Yes?
Question: It says in the Bible, “Thou shalt not kill.”
Adano: Yes.
Question: So you go to (can’t be heard) and go the animals and you go down to the insects, but what about when one becomes a Master and very air is full of life? What about that?
Adano: He kills.
Question: Huh?
Adano: He kills, but everything He kills becomes a human being after.
Question: Well isn’t it sort of…
Adano: Because He’s God manifest in form and everything He contacts in this creation is raised to a higher potential. A Master went walking… He’s a living Master right now, He has a very advanced student who is a doctor of philosophy. One day he was at this retreat and the Master came out of the retreat and He said to the doctor, He says, “Come with me, I want to take a trip into the woods.” They walked into the woods and in the woods the Master said, “Let’s take a turn around this bush.” The professor, he’s a doctor of philosophy, he turned. Master got out of the car and He walked around and all of a sudden, it took five six minutes, along came an old lion, hardly can walk, coming right up and he growled and look at Master, growl, growl. He’s bowing… so the Master says, “Had enough of killing? Alright, you want to go home, want to be a human being? Go on now.” Touched him and the lion fell over and died and He got back in the car and He went His way.

Seven days the man returned. His teacher says, “What happened?” He says, “They don’t know me. Everywhere I went they were too involved with their own personal lives and in fact they call me crazy and threw stones at me and this is the result.” He pulled the garment and he was beaten up, full of scars. So it’s not so easy to know what is Master. Jesus came down from the mountain after He was fasting and passing the river Jordan John said to the group of disciples, only a few of them, “There goeth your Master.” He kept on walking. It is stated that three got up and walked behind Jesus. He never looked around and said, “Hi, I’m glad you recognize me, I’m a Master.” But it’s known that three got up and followed Jesus, but it took John to make the statement. It takes another Master to point out a Master to one who isn’t a Master. So He said, “There goeth your Master.” Then these three men who were studying with John got up and walked after Jesus. Then He went through the marketplace and He said to various people, “Follow me.” Now what is it that triggers the ignition or the recognition for the person to say, “I would want to follow you.” It has to be the Soul Nature, the God Nature, that one feels immediately in contact that pulls it. There has to be some flooding in of that Divine Love at that moment when the two people meet that one would instantaneously drop everything and rush and follow.

So if they impose the restriction of not to eat meat in the ashrams or the retreats, there is a lesson to learn. When you are a beginner don’t try to reach too far. Any other question?
Question: (Can’t be heard.) At the time my brother lifts me, is he not my Master at that moment?
Adano: Lifts me.
Question: If my brother helps me, at that moment if he raises me, is he not my Master?
Adano: No. If you fall down and I lift you up that does not make me your Master because He who is Master must first reveal God to you. That which you seek the most in order to be God-like. Having not found God, how can one who haven’t found It give It to you? The Master’s role in life is to make you aware of God in yourself. That is why He is in the body. He is God personified in flesh, total Cosmic Consciousness. He comes among Man to make Man God Conscious. It is up to Man to recognize the God in the God-Man, but He never would use any way to force him into it. We have a story in the East, it goes like this. There was a student living at a retreat. He was fully realized with His Master and the Master said to him, “Tell me what would be the best thing now that you are realize would you want to do.” He says, “Oh Master with this I would like to go into the village and share it with my brother, with my sisters, the whole world.” And the Master says “Alright, you have my permission, go.”

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.
