There are striking similarities between the Sakar Murli and the Bhagavad Gita.
The Sakar Murli may turn to contain the final answers to the most vital questions about the human history, man and God.
What are the Sakar Murli?
The Sakar Murli are classes delivered orally in the period of 1947-1969 in Karachi and Mount Abu. Not all of them have been preserved till today. A part of them was recorded, a part was printed, a part was destroyed by students using them as household papers, a part remains hidden in archives and private households. The Sakar Murli are considered by certain circles to be words spoken by the Supreme Spiritual Father Shiva through a human chariot, Dada Lekhraj Brahma Baba’s body in the mentioned period. There is no historical evidence that Shiva entered into Dada Lekhraj’s body and narrated those classes. Actually, only careful studies of the murli records and analysis of the knowledge delivered in them and their language may become an indication for a researcher or a student that some unusual knowledge in the human history was narrated through a human being in the period of 1947-69 and the Narrator might not have been a human being. Some researchers claimed that the teachings contained in the Sakar Murli may not be ordinary human words. In a way, they resemble the Vedas. Sentences work like Mantras; their order seems to have its own logic; they seem to be a kind of code. An ordinary reader may even have an experience that they don’t make sense at all. Some researchers of the Sakar Murli said that they couldn’t help thinking that there was something behind those words, something powerful, yet remaining hidden. There are also voices saying that words and sentences of the Sakar Murli are like scattered parts of a mandala or mosaic. They need to be put in order, reassembled, but the key to them is needed? Some say that Sakar Murli are very similar to Sanskrit. Each sentence works like a Sanskrit root, meaning like a messenger, a carrier of a rich deep meaning, but they need to be decoded. They may have their own hierarchy of importance and be very well and logically organized, but the human mind fails in recognizing their structure.
Who is the Narrator of the Sakar Murlis?
The Narrator of those the Sakar Murlis remains unknown to the world. He is described in those classes in the most unusual way. On one side there are parts of the teachings in which the narrator introduces himself and speaks about his qualities and actions using pronouns ‘I’ and ‘that one’. On the other hand, there are parts of the teachings stating that ‘this one here’ is neither narrator, neither teacher, nor guide.
The main attributes of the narrator described in the mentioned Murli are: ‘Sarvshaktivan, Sada Shiva, Trimurti Shiva, Kalatit Kalpantkari, Rudra, Karan Karavanhar, Karmatiit, Abhoghta, Akarta, Asocta, Sada Nirakari’ that translated mean ‘the almighty one, the one who is always benevolent, Shiva who manifests himself through three murti (physical bodies), the one who is beyond all degrees and who brings about the end of the cycle, the one who assumes a ferocious form, the One who performs himself and makes the others perform; the one who remains beyond the results of action, the one who is beyond experience, the one who is beyond action, the one who is beyond thought, the one who is always incorporeal.’ Someone who is referred to as ‘that one’ is described as father, teacher, true guide, the one who purifies the impure ones, the one who sits and explains the beginning, middle and the end of the creation.
What information do the Sakar Murli contain?
The preserved records of the Sakar Murli contain the information about the nature of the human being, the soul, the Supreme Father Supreme Soul, God, the cycle of the human creation, the mother and father of humanity, four stages of the world, paradise and hell. It may also turn to be astonishing that the teachings seem to combine the essence of the four biggest religious branches of the world: Hinduism, religions connected to Abraham, Buddhism and Christianity and describe the expansion of religious paths along with their main attributes. Students and researchers notices striking similarities between the Sakar Murli and the Bhagavad Gita. The knowledge contained in the Sakar Murlis is combined with the Four Pictures of Knowledge called: the Trimurti Shiva, Lakshmi&Narayan, the Tree of the Cycle, the Ladder.
Increasing number of people who studied the Sakar Murlis say that they also contain the information concerning scientific, historical, cultural, social, religious and other fields and may bring a new light to the common understanding of the human history and culture, philosophy and religion, the human origin, the role of man in the universe and various other matters that are vital for the intellectual and spiritual wealth, health and happiness of humanity. Thorough studying and churning the content of the Sakar Murlis may lead to the individual recognition of the self and spiritual father and the recognition of all the actors in the human drama.
Where are the Sakar Murli available?
Two institutions have access to the preserved Sakar Murli- at this time. They are Adhyatmik Ishvariya Vishvavidyalaya and Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University. The founder of AIVV, Shivbaba, delivers commentaries to the Sakar Murli and compares their content with the important religious scriptures, explains meanings of words used in them. All his classes as well as the Sakar Murli that he uses are available to the public (http://shivababa.wordpress.com). The BKWSU distributes the Sakar Murlis in revised and shortened versions, but only among their members. Seniors of BKWSU deliver their commentaries to them exclusively for the members of BKWSU (http://www.brahmakumaris.org.in/).
