Great Masters of The Himalayas
Rishi Singh Gherwal
The book is about Rishi Singh Gherwal's claimed trip with the Himalayan
Masters between 1922 and 1923.
In this book he writes about his trip to the
caves with Yogis, Sadhus, Swamis, Sanyasis, Munis and Rishis.
In his search for
the truth Rishi Singh Gherwal visited
Hardwar (Every twelve years the
"Maha Kumba mella" is held there)
Mount Abu in Rajputana
The cave of Nasik
The cave of Bagh (90*90 feet,
45 miles east of Mandhu where the rivers Vagruly and Girna meet.)
(which are reachable from Hardwar where the Ganges River leaves Himalayas.)
and visited the temples of
Dehug, Gha-dan, Sera, Pora-tat-sanga,
(one mile from Shigatse), where
Rishi Singh Gherwal learns the difference between the belief of Lamas and Yogis:
Great Masters of The Himalayas Their Lives and Temple Teaching by Rishi
Singh Gherwal (Copyrighted 1927):
It is perhaps well to tell my readers that Lamas and Yogis do not share the same
belief. Lamas are adherents of Buddha alone - a Yogi could not believe the assertions
of any one man.
Yogis believe each human being has all knowledge within
himself. At some time the individual will unfold and realize his mightiness; a
Buddhist will reach the Buddha attainment of Nirvana; a Christian will reach the
Christ consciousness; a Mohammedan will realize Mohammed; a Hindu will attain the
state of Krishna.
Hindus assert that Krishna, Buddha and Christ are all the
same. They are within you - your God is within.
Everywhere one hears God made
man in his image. Tibetans have their God: China, Japan, Asia, Europe, America-all
have their Gods. Hindus have many gods: a god of death; god of knowledge; god of fire.
It is very difficult for everyone (including the Hindus) to understand these
gods unless they study the Upanishads. Every country has its God. I am at a loss to
understand how "God made man in his image."
One says Jehovah the other says
One Allah, the other says Khuda.
One says Punmeshara, the other
One says Akal, the other says Seva.
One says Wahai, the other
One says Almighty, the other says The Universal Spirit.
One says Om, the other says Brahma.
Different names and different Gods. All
that is claimed is that "my God is better than your God." it seems to me, that man has
made God in his image.
...One very old Lama said:" The same beliefs are not
shared by Lamas and Yogis. The Yogi cannot believe that the teaching of any one man
can be final; he sees that every human being has access to all knowledge right within
himself, while Lamas are adherents of Buddha alone.
In all probability, each
human will unfold and realize his mightiness. A Christian will reach the Christ
conscousness, a Buddhist will reach the Buddha attainment, and so on.
All have their gods, and on every hand one can hear that God made man in his image.
All nations and all peoples have their different gods.
Some have their god of
fire, others have the god of harvest, and so on. Each has a better God than his
brother. How am I to understand that God made man in his image, unless from the many
gods set up, I would say that each man made God in his , man's, own image?
