    Hidden Mysteries

    6 June 1971 pm in Woodlands, Bombay, India

    In the Pacific Ocean there is a small island, Easter Island, on which there are one thousand huge
    stone idols, all about seventy feet tall. The population of the island is just two hundred. It was found,
    when that island was first discovered, that it was so small, it couldn’t produce food for more than
    two hundred people. When only two hundred people can live there, it was surprising to find such
    huge stone idols and as many as one thousand! Five idols for every person! Those people would
    not have been able to make such huge idols even if they wanted to, because their lives are spent in
    taking care of their day to day needs. What could be the purpose of those idols? Who would have
    made them and why? Many questions arose for historians.
    In central Asia there is another place that is equally puzzling. It could have been meant to be used
    for an airport, but as long as airplanes were not made, that wasn’t possible. The area seemed to
    be developed fifteen to twenty thousand years ago. Only after the airplane was invented could we
    understand its use, could we understand that that place in central Asia must once have served as
    an airport.

    I am telling you these things to convey to you the idea that we will not be able to understand the
    significance of places of pilgrimage until we ourselves realize the need to have them.
    When the idols of Easter Island were photographed from airplanes, it could be imagined that they
    were installed at certain geometrical points, in such a way that they could be seen from the moon
    on particular nights. Those who have studied this subject think that we, in this century, are not
    the first people to look for life on other planets. Many times before experiments and attempts have
    been made to find animals and other forms of life on other planets so that communication could be


    established with them. Not only that, but beings from other planets also seem to have made contact
    with our earth.

    These twenty feet long idols are not meaningful in themselves, but when their whole pattern is
    observed from a plane there are indications of some signs and secret messages. Those signs could
    only be read from the moon. But as long as we had not seen the idols from a plane we could not
    imagine their possible use; they were still then just idols. In the same way there are many things on
    this earth about which we will know nothing until our civilization investigates and sets up a similar
    situation again.

    Just three or four days ago, I was talking about a small iron box which was found in Tehran. It
    was kept in The British Museum for a long time, for many years it was just lying there. Now it has
    been found to be a type of battery which was used in Tehran about two thousand years ago. It was
    beyond the imagination that in Tehran, two thousand years ago, such a battery existed. But now it
    is an established fact that it is a battery. If we had not invented the storage battery we would never
    have been able to imagine that that such a box could be a battery.

    A tirtha, a sacred place of pilgrimage, is a unique invention, very deep and symbolic, made by an
    ancient civilization. But our present civilization has lost all knowledge about the significance of such
    places. Today visiting a place of pilgrimage is just a dead ritual for us. We just tolerate them, without
    knowing why places of pilgrimage were established, what their use was and who made them.
    Whatever can be seen from the surface is not everything. There are some hidden meanings which
    are not visible from the outside. We should understand first that our civilization has lost the purpose
    and meaning of the sacred place of pilgrimage and so today people who go on a pilgrimage waste
    their time. Those who oppose the idea are also wasting their time, however right they seem to be,
    because they know nothing about such places. Neither the people who visit the places of pilgrimage,
    nor those who oppose the idea know the purpose of them, so let us understand a few things about

    There is a famous place of pilgrimage for Jainas known as Samved Shikhar. Twenty-two out of the
    twenty-four tirthankaras of the Jainas have died there, have left their bodies there. It all seems to
    have been pre-arranged; otherwise it is impossible that out of twenty-four, twenty-two should happen
    to die, with long periods of time between them, in the same place. If we believe the Jainas there
    is a gap of one hundred thousand years between the first and the twenty-fourth tirthankara. That
    twenty-two of them died in the same place is worth thinking about.

    The place of pilgrimage for Moslems is the Kaaba. Until the time of Mohammed, there were three
    hundred and sixty-five idols in Kaaba – a different idol for each day of the year. All these idols were
    removed or destroyed, but the central stone which was the center of the temple was not removed.
    The Kaaba is more ancient than the Muslims’ religion. The history of Islam is only about fourteen
    hundred years old, but that black stone in the Kaaba is hundreds of thousands of years old.
    Another interesting fact is that the stone does not seem to belong to our earth. How did it come
    to earth? The only hypothesis we have is that it is part of a meteor. Within twenty-four hours of
    the disintegration of a meteor, thousands of stone fragments fall to the earth........................
