The Maitreya-Babaji Connection

Babaji has presented Himself in three forms, one as proclaimed by Paramahansa Yogananda, another as proclaimed by Yogi Ramaiah, and yet another who appeared in person in Haidakhan, India, in 1970-84. The first is an eternal Spirit, the second is an immortal Incarnation, and the third is a human Enigma. The first, named Mahavatar Babaji, has been hanging around earth for many millenia; the second, named Kriya Babaji Nagaraj, incarnated in 203 A.D. and became both enlightened and immortal at a very early age after being initiated by Sage Agastya, who was also the Guru of Ramachandra; while the third, named Hariakhan Baba and then Haidakhan Baba, dwelt among us for several centuries and then very explicitly for 14 years.

The three forms of Babaji seem to be the Dharmakaya, Samboghakaya, and Nirmanakaya forms of a Buddha, and that Buddha seems to be Maitreya, the future Buddha, who has now come. However, the various Tri-kaya forms have their real individuality and one should not conflate them entirely with each other or with Maitreya, especially since Maitreya has come in several other forms. One is the Ascended Master Light Body that is very close to the Noumenal reality of God in Nature, and the other is the embodiment of the true Mind of the human Observer. The former is the fully explicated quantum reality, and the latter is the quantum implicate order. The variety of forms is essential to the complexity of the plan of God, which is also a blueprint for Creation itself.

The Dharmakaya form of Babaji is both the Divine Presence and the ABBA (Father) who overshadowed Jesus, doing the miracles through Him. The Sambhogakaya form is the Noumenon, both in nature and in spiritual transcendence. It is also also the dweller in the cave of the heart of the cosmic emotional body. The Nirmanakaya is ontologically the meta-physical or classical antithesis to the quantum Noumenon in nature and phenomenologically the transformer of Presence into causal energy, known as Gangadhara.

THESE PICTURES: In 1911 Hariakhan Baba went to the city of Prayag and was seen by many people bathing in the river at one of the public baths. A photographer named Sorabji took two pictures of Him while He was there. To everyone's surprise, when the pictures were developed, in one Baba was wearing his shirt and tibetan cap, and in the other He was wearing no clothes at all, even though both pictures were taken at the same time.
