Well this question haunted me as a child. Whenever I used to listen to stories of Lord Rama, Krishna, Prahlad. How come God came to save then and why not today?
Every part of globe is haunted with immense misery. Hand is eating another hand. Where is God? Why is he not there to save us. Countless Draupadis are at stake every single moment. Countless Sitas go missing, pandavas are being looted every second. Krishna is never seen around. As an adult, I have got some answers which I would like to share here. Well, Lord Krishna definitely is not seen as the age is different, Kalyuga is all about evils. Kaal the representation of evil thrives in this age. And God cannot be visible through senses or do miracles as we have seen in Satyuga when it was an age of truth. And Kaal had limited power, In Kalyuga Kaal or Satan’s powers grow multifold. So how do we see God, or get his grace. Well, by performing good deeds, virtues. you may be lucky enough to get Satsang or true Saints.
True Saints are the messengers of God in this age, near incarnation you can say. They cannot show their true selves and miracles too are not the same as in Satyuga. Although those with firm faith and past sanskaras, get to live as Satyuga even in Kalyuga, due to devotion and Satsang. So as Saints proclaim, Baba Ram Rahim Ji of Dera Sacha Sauda, even exhorts. In Kalyuga only Satsang can take one out of the garb of the cycle of births and deaths. As he gives examples of holy books, where these sermons are present. “Kalyuga kewalnaamadhaara, simar simarjeevutropaar”. So Kalyuga is all about earning devotion by meditating on God’s name and once can find the liberate its soul.
Kalyuga being the age of Satan, is also forgiving in many terms. Here one can earn devotion very easily. Earlier it used to take ages, for people to have a diving glimpse of God. As Baba Ram Rahim Ji says, People used to sit in meditation for centuries, and sometimes they used to turn into trees, with roots, coming out of them and going into soil and still the required devotion was not earned. And in kalyuga one can attain God in a matter of weeks and months with Satsang and a true Saint’s guidance by you side. So kalyuga, may not be about miracles or Gods, but this times is all about meeting God with a perfect mentor. And with consistent efforts in meditation, one can see miracles all around and a true Saint is a manifestation of God himself. He is himself there to guide him and is always there for him in every single moment, be it this world or Nijdham, the abode of self or Lord.
Also, the devotee is emancipated from the cycles of birth death and gets to his real abode while living a life full of bliss and divine glimpses. Kalyuga is not too bad after all, the real deal is to find a true Saint, Says Baba Gurmeet Ram Rahim Ji. How to find and recognise a true Saint in this world of fakes. As per Guru Ram Rahim Ji, a true saint is one who never asks for a penny for himself, and instead gives from his own side, and shows the path of goodness and virtues. His preachings, have no selfish motive and they are for the good of Society. Yousoul, can guide you in this regard too. With a true Saint, your soul will have the feeling of longing and you may feel a strong connection with the God that resides within you.
