April, 1999 - Marge Asks Babaji About Preparations For Natural Disasters
"Preparing for disaster is good. But there is one disaster that few prepare for and that is a disastrous life of emptiness, running here and there, trying to acquire more wealth, more possessions, more power, more knowledge, only to find, in the end, a life of one disaster after another. You see? What good is it to survive a physical or manmade disaster when one's life is not full and attached to the higher self? Listen carefully. Living in Truth, Simplicity and Love, being in service to others, living on the higher path ... this is all one needs to survive any kind of disaster. Now all this concentration upon disaster is nothing new. You see, when humans are consumed with the end of the world, this is merely symbolic of their true fear. Their fear of death. Understand? The body will become no-thing. No matter what we do or how we shall prepare, the final disaster can not be overcome. Understand this and you will understand most of human thought, emotion, and activity.

Babaji.net is dedicated to presenting the teachings of Shri Haidakhan Babaji for the purpose of uplifting humanity. Haidakhan Babaji was present physically and resided in Haidakhan, District Nainital, in northern India, from 1970 to 1984. He is recognized by many as one of the incarnations of the “Babaji” mentioned in Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramhansa Yogananda.
Babaji’s basic teachings are: Truth, Simplicity, Love and Service. He recommended the mantra “Om Namah Shivaya” as a means of connection to the Divine, by repeating it constantly. The words are translated as “I surrender to the Divine” or “Lord, Thy Will Be Done.” This mantra holds the qualities of purification and protection. Babaji also taught that all religions are based on the same teachings and to follow the religion that is in your heart.
