From Shree Vasant’s Teachings

Baptism of Fire is Agnihotra
“The vision about the evening and morning sacrifices which have been explained to you will come true. But keep it secret now because it will be a long time before it does come true.”–Daniel 8:26 Good News English Bible

Daniel was asked to keep it a secret, for a long time was to elapse before this particular vision would come true. Now the time has come when all the seals are broken open and knowledge spreads to all the people as the earth enters a new era. Now it will be a new race of children who will function with more ease with the so-called sixth sense becoming manifest. When the seals put on ancient wisdom are broken open it is the scientist who will first come to know that his knowledge is very limited and that he can draw on this ancient wisdom and benefit all creation.

Vedas is the ancientmost body of knowledge known to man and this knowledge is the common heritage of all races on the planet whether they be white, black, brown, yellow or red. Vedas should not be associated with any sectarian religious label like Hindu, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, etc. All prophets come to reiterate the basic scientific knowledge given through the Vedas to enable man to live in peace and prosperity. No scriptures contradict each other. They are to be interpreted considering the conditions and circumstances in which they were revealed to various avatars and prophets.

“He hath revealed unto thee (Mohammed) the Scripture with truth, confirming that which was revealed before it, even as He revealed the Torah and the Gospel.” –Holy Quran III, 3

We have entered a new era. Daniel’s prophecy has come true. The morning and evening sacrifice is AGNIHOTRA, the smallest form of Yajnya, the process of purification of the atmosphere through the agency of fire based on one biorhythm. Agnihotra leads to purification of the mind and takes us to the state mentioned in the Bible as “renewal” of the mind. Renewing the mind means making it pure and, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.”  Only with such a cultured mind one can reach the state, “Not my will but Thy Will be done.” This is the aim of Fivefold Path.

It appears, however, that it will be the scientist of the West who will be and who is more interested in examining Daniel’s prophecy by methods of experimental science. If only the churches of all religions become open to knowledge like the Western scientist, they will be able to benefit mankind even while they choose to insist upon looking through their own windows. The scientist has nothing to lose but his ignorance while the churches of all religions stand to lose their dogma. Western scientists have taken much interest in Agnihotra.

Only through science will mankind be able to reach the Kingdom of Heaven which is within. Only through science we will take to scientific ways to train the mind to “Love thy neighbor as thyself.”

It is the Divine Will that the message of love goes through the avenues of science. This is why Agnihotra is spreading so rapidly all over the world.
