“Avatar” is a Sanskrit word, and it means a divine messenger, one that comes to humanity to give some light, some love, some beauty, and some culture.

Avatar also means a messenger that cyclically appears. Also, Avatar means a messenger that is coming to bridge some cleavages.

What is a cleavage?
For example, let us say, that man does not know that God exists. Many people do not know about that. That is a great cleavage. The Avatar comes and tells us that somebody exists, that there is a source of beauty, a source of power, a source of supreme intelligence, a source that thinks about us, about our future. Christ came to bridge that cleavage so that you can reach your divinity. First you start being a dignified human being, and slowly you recognize that you are not trash; you are a son or daughter of God.

These great Avatars bring integration within our nature. And it happens immediately. When you are in the presence of a great man or woman, you feel you are more together or things come together.

A boy went to meet some people that were really advanced spiritually, the first thing he saw was how weak he was, how many mistakes he has made, what he did in the past. They were revealed just in one second. Then he saw how beautiful those people were. He wanted to strive toward them. Then some inspiration came, and he became one. He said, “From now on I am going to be a good boy.”

What did he do? He made a commitment to his inner divinity. He said, “From now on, I am not going to smoke, not going to cheat, drink, do these trash things. I am going to be a good boy.” What happened? Some unification came, some togetherness in his nature. And if you apply this in respect to humanity, this Avatar comes and bridges man with the future. Every Avatar comes to reveal a great future.

You must be expanding and raising your consciousness, purifying yourself, so that you are worthy of your father (God). It is such a beautiful feeling.

A man came to a great master and said, “I went with my wife on a ship and had a nice trip. But”, he said, “there were lots of lovely girls, I was going to monkey around, but because my wife was there I didn’t want to hurt her.” If your wife is there and you do not want to monkey around, what about if God was there? Now this is what realization is. This may seem very simple to you. That is how Avatars open a great vision for your future.

So, we can say that Avatars are those divine beings that reveal the vision of the future within our consciousness. First you see the vision. Then you put yourself in order. Then you clean and break the chains and slowly, slowly say “Now, I am going”. Whether you like it or not, the vision is there and you cannot wait. That is the Avatar.

Another duty and responsibility of the Avatar is to bring a great culture to humanity. It started with Krishna, Buddha, then Zoroaster, Moses and then Christ. When Avatars come, you see a new culture. Why is that?

Culture means values. Avatars bring values to humanity, new values, new ideas, new visions, new beauty, new goodness, new truth. If you try to make contact with the Avatar, it is a moment of crisis and transformation for you. That is the most personal moment.

For example, a great Avatar like Christ comes, but He cannot do anything for you if you do not do anything for yourself. What are you going to do? Of course you can worship and go to church and light some candles and sing all the day – but that does not work. What are you going to do? You are going to “rub” yourself with Him, so that your iron becomes magnetic.

How are you going to rub? You are going to strive to be like Him. You are going to take His Teachings and really actualize them. He said, for example, “Love each other as I loved you”. But churches are fighting against each other. When does it work? When you really listen, assimilate, eat and digest the Teaching He gives. Or else you become a hypocrite.

An Avatar comes and brings new ideas, new visions, new revelations, and He leaves it to you to strive, to work, to labor, and to “eat” the Teaching so that you change yourself. God wants your consciousness to expand so that you know Him. In knowing Him, you are knowing yourself.

If you know that God is thinking about you and sending Great Ones to bring your consciousness higher and higher, you feel different. You are not lost in the Universe. You do not say, “There is no meaning and purpose in life”. There is purpose, there is meaning, there is a plan for your life – because somebody is watching you and someone is waiting at the gate to salute you and say, “BRAVO”.

Christ gave a parable that is very beautiful. He said there was a rich man who was giving a party, and very beautifully dressed people came. But he saw that somebody was not dressed well. He said, “You leave; you cannot come in because you are not properly dressed”. Well, what was that proper dress? It was a state of consciousness – the state of heart, the state of purity. When you have these things, you can enter into that feast of spiritual consciousness.

When is the next Avatar coming?
Many people have said “Only God knows”. They say He will appear every ten years, He is coming tomorrow. He is going to come. It is a secret. Nobody knows why.

If you have a father who does not say much and says, “You wait; when I tell you to go, then you go”. But you say, “Well, tell me when to go now.” That is ugly; that is personality, that is selfishness, that is self-interest. But if you say, “Daddy, okay. You tell me whenever you want. I am ready 24 hours a day,” that is total renunciation of the self and total humility. So that is why we do not know.

There is another very important thing here to think about. The important thing that you must remember is this – that He never left humanity. He is not coming and going. Those who have really spiritual eyes and uplifted consciousness, they are always in contact with Him.

What are you talking about – appearing and disappearing? He is always with you. And He said, “If there are three people who meet in my name, I am with them.” He never went away. You can feel Hi, even standing by you if you dedicate yourself and really purify yourself and say, “I am going to stand for the welfare of one humanity.” Look what will happen. Your whole body will electrify. That is the Avatar.

Female Avatars?
Of course. People take advantage and think Masters are men, that Avatars are men – and women are slaves. That came from many, many distorted teachings.

There are great women Avatars. The mother of Jesus is a great Avatar. Some people say, “Why is she Holy Mary?” Well, you are not the mother of the Christ. Can you be a mother of the Christ? No. She has cosmic consciousness. Christ is a great Avatar; she is a very great Avatar.

Women have a great role to play. Women in this age are more advanced than men. And women have greater responsibilities than men. This does not mean that man is nothing. It is cyclic.

When a civilization decays, it starts with the mothers. When a mother forgets her responsibility toward the children and starts fooling around and smoking, the children will become criminal. That is the situation now. If you see the ladies now-a-days smoking and drinking, it shows how they are going to raise the children.

So, if a nation degenerates, it starts from the mothers, not the fathers, because for nine months, the child is with her, inside. For nine months she is educating that child from the bones, from the nerves. If she does something wrong during those nine months, it is going to stay ninety years with the child. So you are very responsible when you are a woman.

Who wouldn’t want to be like a Christ? A man comes and falls down and says. “Master, I can’t see from childhood. I am blind.” Well, let me see what I can do.” He takes a little earth, puts it on the blind man’s eyes, and his eyes open. Do you want to be like that? Of course you want that.

Instead of wasting yourself, strive now; do something beautiful. Of course you are human. We are all human and we do many stupid things. But at least now you have the vision, the future, and you are going to strive for it. When you strive, inch by inch, you see you are so beautiful.

So the first thing is that the Avatar brings the image of your future achievement. If the Avatar comes and you are really tuned to the Avatar, the one thing you are going to do is ask, “What is my future? What am I going to be?” For example, a little seed one day sits and says, “What am I going to be?” If you tell the seed that he is going to be a big beautiful rose, look how that seed is going to strive to have that dignity and beauty. “No matter how many rains and snows are coming, I am going to be a rose. Finished! I am going to be,” and he is going to be a rose.

You are a little seed and your future is in the Avatar. YOU ARE GOING TO BE AN AVATAR. You are going to be like the Avatar because He is the image of your future, psychologically it brings you energy, integrates your system, and gives you health and mental sharpness because it puts you in tune with the principles and laws of the Universe.

That is what the Avatar does for your body, emotions, mind, thoughts, and feelings. You hated yourself, you were miserable, and every kind of think was scattered. You do not know where you are or what you are, but when the image of the Avatar starts to penetrate within you, you say, “Now I know where I am going to go.” This is the first thing that the Avatar does.

The second thing that the Avatar does is that He heals. It is emotional healing, mental healing, spiritual healing, social healing, healing in relationships, healing in your creativity, healing in your goals. How can you have a healing in your creativity? Well, if your creativity is creating chaos, destruction, pollution in the bodies of the people, He heals you. You start reflecting the divine beauties in your creativity.

You will save lots of money from the hospitals because you do not hate. When people start hating, they literally lose calcium. When you are greedy, you accumulate super amounts of calcium in your joints.

Avatars were not talking about morality; they were really talking about health, happiness, harmony, and beauty.

In New York there was a big millionaire who had a big safe. One day he entered to see how much gold and jewels he had in the safe. When he entered, the door automatically closed. This really happened in 1947. He started to shout but nobody could hear him from the safe. They were looking. The police were running everywhere to find this man. They found him eating the gold. His whole body had gold inside. He didn’t know what to do; he became crazy.

Giving is a greater blessing than taking. Giving releases your innermost divinity and it comes and expresses through your feelings, physical body, and mind and coordinating and tunes you into divine ideas. Taking is imprisoning yourself; you are becoming one with whatever you are taking. In giving you are becoming generosity, you are becoming spirit, you are becoming love, and you are becoming beauty. The water should keep flowing. If the pipe is not flowing with new water, it has stagnated water in it and the pipe decays.

Avatars bring illumination to our minds. What does illumination mean? Firstly, it shows you where you are, what you are, where you are going, how you are going, and the path – just like a light. If you are enlightened, you are yourself. If you are not enlightened, you sit on a chair and you say, “I am the greatest professor. I am saved. I am liberated. I am going to go to heaven.”

If you are ignorant, you think you are something, if you are enlightened, you see that you need ten million years to be something. An unenlightened man is his own end and he ends himself. He is a full stop. An enlightened man is an open door; he is his own beginning.

What does enlightenment do? If you really want to know that it is enlightenment, there is one sign. If you get enlightened, the enlightenment bugs you. It says, “Look. Look. Look! Again! Now again. My goodness. When are you going to be a human being?” If it suits you and you are happier, it is not enlightenment. It is flattery.

So beware of people who flatter you. Enlightenment never flatters. Enlightenment says, “Hey, hey, that is enough.” In enlightenment we see what we are, where we are going, where we came from, and how we are going. Physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, you raise yourself up and up.

One can stand here and say I am a great master, and you are my children. That is romanticism. It works with different people, it doesn’t work here. We are talking hard facts, not romanticism.

What about seeing the future, setting my eyes on the future? Yes, but you can be happier if you are bugged. For example, you see that you are going to be a son of God, but in the meantime you are robbing, lying, this or that, and telling yourself, “You are doing well. You are happy.” You are happy but not happy. One must be bugged to be really happy because when you are bugged, you are overcoming your shortcomings and making yourself a better human being. Always be in joy and happiness. But what about the little things that are happening? Are you seeing them? Don’t be attached to them, but know that they are the things that eventually make your tires flat on the road.

Enlightenment is acceptance of your failures and shortcomings and mistakes. Unless you accept your mistakes, you are not seeing what wrong you did, and you are blaming other people for your not obeying the law. That is your test. If you are doing wrong and you realize it and correct yourself, you are closer to your destiny and your future than if you are happier with your wrongs and start blaming other people.

Enlightenment is a gradual process
You must understand that it is a gradual, slow process. Every time you are enlightened, the test is the bugging. If you pass the bugging, you are good. Immediately if your conscience says you are doing something wrong and you say, “No, I am right”, you didn’t pass.

A teacher used to tell how we can know the truth. He says, “Truth is sour”. For example, if somebody comes and starts talking about what you are exactly, what you did in the past, you will be so mad because he is revealing what you are. You don’t like to be revealed exactly. Nobody wants that – because the world will see you as you are. The truth is always sour.

Another quality of Avatars
•Avatars reveal an aspect of divinity that was not revealed before. For example, we read how Buddha came and said, “The principle is light. We must strive only to be light, speak light, think light, act in the light.” Another aspect of God is love, and Christ came and told us that God is love.

•Everybody thinks that the easiest thing is to love, but love is the most difficult thing to do. Did you know that? When people have a personal, physical, emotional attachment, monkey business, and emotions and pleasures, they say, “We love. That is love.” That is not the love we are talking about.

•You have been disappointed many times, haven’t you? What happened? You are disappointed in your love, by the people that loved you. The next day love evaporated. It is not love. It is a very, very difficult thing to love because to love means total self-forgetfulness. You are going to resign from yourself in the self of another person. Can you do that? There is no selfishness. That is how an Avatar becomes an Avatar.

•Avatars are those people who decentralize themselves. Eventually, gradually, they lose sight of themselves and live only for humanity. They become Avatars. They totally resign from themselves, from their own interests.

•The next Avatar is going to reveal another power of God – the will energy.

•So, Avatars are great, great beings, and one thing that makes us really advance is that we look to the Avatars and we try to improve our lives. Don’t lie and cheat yourself. Don’t hide from yourself. It is the greatest calamity when a man starts to play hide-and-seek with himself.

•It is a very dirty game when you start hiding from yourself instead of seeking yourself. It is so bad because you are in hypocrisy with yourself.

•Always corner yourself and say, “Hey, I know you did wrong; come on, you can improve.” Then you have a chance to be a great Avatar in the future.

•But the first step is decentralization. An Avatar is One Who has no center in Himself. God is His center. He has resigned from Himself. He does not say, “I live.” He says, “He that is within Me lives.” He doesn’t exist anymore. He is an open window and He does not exist.

•But if you see people who say they know who they are, they are beautiful, they are liberated and saved – be careful. They are still spinning around their own spine.
