We have already examined all stages of the spiritual Path in the terms of Patanjali's scheme [11
]. Now let us discuss the same problem using analysis of the formula of spiritual development, suggested by Avatar Babaji [14
]. This formula sounds as follows: "Truth — Simplicity — Love — Karma Yoga (Service to humanity) — Abandonment of the lower self for the sake of merging with the Higher Self of God".

Coming of Jesus Christ — The Messenger of God-the-Father — to Earth had been prophesied by numerous Jewish prophets. But when Jesus did come — only some of the Jews acknowledged Him as Christ; those were the people who became His first disciples and spreaders of the Teaching of God which was new for that region of Earth. But the official Synagogue never accepted Jesus as a Messenger of God-the-Father and… for more almost two thousand years has been waiting for another Christ ever since (see , for example).
Similar phenomenon can be observed today in all mass organizations that call themselves Christian: they also do not see God Who appears before people of Earth in human form.
Jesus Christ Himself prophesied: "When you see One Who was not born of woman, fall on your faces and worship. That One is your Father" (Gospel of Thomas, 16; see [6,14]). But in 1970 Avatar Babaji came to Earth exactly in this way [14-16,18,37] — but "Christians" did not recognize Him.
(Now another Avatar — Sathya Sai Baba [8,14] — is working on Earth, preaching the same Eternal Universal Teaching of God-the-Father — and again hierarchs of all mass Churches refuse to recognize Him!).
God became a competitor for many religious organizations: for He can "entice away" their "flock" to Himself. Who would then support all those for whom churches are a source of income? This is why the Russian Orthodox Church intimidates its congregation: "everything that comes from East — is of Satan", or "if you do not stick to us — you are going to go to hell"…
But Jesus Christ incarnated in the Middle East — in Judaea. Krishna, Babaji and Sathya Sai — all of Them are from East. So, is God — "from East"?
But this kind of "Christianity" was brought to Russia from West — from Greece…
Isn't it time to come to our senses?

Babaji is One of the Representatives of God-the-Father, a Part of Him. He periodically embodies on Earth as an Avatar in order to help people. One of His incarnations took place at the end of 19th century; it was described by Yogananda . The next one was from 1970 to 1984 — again in Northern India, where He appeared before people by materializing a body of a young man for Himself, in which He lived for 14 years.
Now Babaji, together with Jesus Christ, Sathya Sai, Krishna and other Divine Teachers, Who are Manifestations of God-the-Father, keeps on helping worthy disciples of God — but this time from the non-embodied state.
From His last incarnation on Earth Babaji left people a concise and brilliant version of the Teaching of God, the "core" of which is the mentioned above short and exhaustive list of what we, people, have to accomplish. The main thing for us now is to try to correctly understand what these words mean and then to fulfill all this.
