In the sky of the Cosmic Divinity, beyond Soul-world,
Gathering the clouds of an ever-flowing compassion,
He bowed down at the feet of the gracious Lords,
The shelter and refuge of all beings!
In the holy lands of the ancient East,
Though many Teachers boasted much,
The most famous and immortal Gurus –
The Buddha, Vishnu, Zoroaster, Parasurama and many others –
Who, like the sun and moon, lit up the entire world.
Their Heart-son was Kalki,
Who mastered the Liberative Art,
Was the host of all gods and goddesses,
And will undoubtedly attract well-endowed friends,
For, throughout his past lives, hearing of the appearance of the great Masters,
Praised by all seekers of that time,
He wholeheartedly yearned to see them and single-mindedly served them.
He sought and served the great Masters with all his strength,
Sometimes renouncing an entire kingdom,
While giving up his own life at other times as a fulfillment of vows to save beings.
Upon seeing the great Masters he swooned in ecstasy,
Bowed at their feet and earnestly sought the profound pith Instructions,
That would in future lives lead to the unexcelled, complete, perfect enlightenment,
His father the Buddha said, during the ‘transmission of the lamp’,
“By the mercy and blessing of boundless Nirvana and all the gods and devas,
I have passed on to you this sword-like Teaching,
Sharp enough to cut the chains of human suffering and ignorance,
Go forth and restore the keys to Enlightenment in the distant future,
My dear and most beloved Son.”
Indefatigably exerting his body, mind and speech,
Sometimes appearing in the world as a pauper,
And some other times appearing as a revered prince,
He worked hard to please the Masters.
Looking at his fervor and inflexible devotion,
With omniscient eyes, the Masters said kindly:
“Due to various unavoidable circumstances in all places in the world,
The Instructions concerning the path to supreme enlightenment for all beings,
Are not perfect today;
Some are deficient while others are overdue.
Though one may risk a terrible headache
Imparting them to one’s disciples,
Little profit can they bring at any given time.
In the days of defilement such as those that will overwhelm the minds of many during the 21st century,
People will have little or no time for studying Truth,
While their other activities will be awarded plenty of time and resources.
Therefore at that time, waste not your time with mere studies,
But adeptly practice the Essential Teachings.”
To practice correctly is to conquer the fear of the death of the ego-mind,
The adept meditate hard and resolutely,
Converting into blessings their thoughts.
Thusly they gain the capability to transmit to other determined beings,
The Inner Experience and unexcelled blessings,
Effectively imparting the profoundest Pith-Instructions,
Which when exercised helps one reach the state of supreme Relaxation.
