STORY OF EKAM
The divine phenomenon of the golden orb.
Ekam is the sacred abode of the cosmic womb – Hiranya Garbha.
At the heart of Ekam is a divine phenomenon, the phenomenon of the golden orb, or Hiranya Garbha. The Hiranya Garba was first mentioned 10,000 years ago in the Rig Veda, the world’s most ancient scripture. Our ancients had a mystical experience about the origin of the Universe. They saw the entire visible universe, and the countless Lokaas in the invisible universe, all being born from the luminous Cosmic Womb. This cosmic womb in Sanskrit was called the Hiranya Garbha. The Cosmic Womb or the Hiranya Garbha has everything contained in itself. It contains space, time, matter, energy, and consciousness. This Hiranya Garbha exploded, and the Universe as we know it today came into existence. This is what the Big Bang Theory also speaks about.
The process of creation is – The one appearing as the many. The one became the celestial bodies in the sky. It became the various forces of physics like gravity, magnetism, electricity, space, and time. It is this Hiranya Garbha that became the various forms of energy like heat, light, and sound. It is from this Hiranya Garbha that life emerged. The Universe is now a colossal 13.5 billion years old. It is in its middle age and then the many will once again become the one, becoming the Hiranya Garbha once again. This is the flow of the Universe, from one to many and many to one. When our ancients had the experience of the Hiranya Garbha, they also saw numerous gods and goddesses as the many forms of the Hiranya Garbha.
Not many in the world know that the very first personified form of the divine that emerged from the Hiranya Garbha was called Prajapathi. The word Prajapathi means the Lord of All Creation or the Lord of all beings. Prajapathi was the name of the divine during the Rig Vedic times, several thousand years ago. All other gods came much later. By the time people began to build temples, both Hiranya Garbha and the Prajapathi were forgotten. That is why there is neither a temple nor a ritual to honor this great revelation our ancients had. This Hiranya Garbha appeared in Sri Bhagavan when Sri Bhagavan was 3 years old. For many years, Sri Bhagavan chanted a mantra into the Hiranya Garbha. Over the years Sri Bhagavan understood that the Hiranya Garbha had come to answer the prayers of humanity and enlighten humanity. Sri Bhagavan knew a phenomenon was going to happen on earth. When Sri Bhagavan was 21 years old, the vision of Hiranya Garbha suddenly disappeared.
After almost two decades, the phenomenon re-appeared in the school Jeevashram, founded by Sri Bhagavan, when Sri Krishnaji was 11 years old. One day, a magnificent golden being suddenly manifested in Sri Krishnaji’s heart. When asked, “Who are you?”, this being called himself by the name… Prajapathi! Sri Krishnaji used to converse and have a beautiful connection with this Being who would take him on mystical journeys to higher worlds, reveal past lives, heal people and perform miracles around nature. That golden being, after sometime, transformed into the golden orb, or the Hiranya Garbha. When Sri Krishnaji shared his experience with his father, Sri Bhagavan, he immediately knew that the Hiranya Garbha into which he had chanted for several years had re-appeared in his son to help humanity. The time had come. Sri Bhagavan asked Krishnaji if he could transfer this experience to others. Sri Krishnaji had a deep knowing of how to do it, and when he transferred the Hiranya Garbha to the students of the school and their parents, they went into magnificent enlightened states of consciousness – states of sages of all traditions.
At the heart of Ekam is a divine phenomenon, the phenomenon of the Golden Orb, or Hiranya garbha. Ekam is the only place on Earth which houses the powerful Hiranya Garbha. When people from various faiths enter the Ekam Sanctum and connect with the Hiranya Garbha, they have a transcendental experience of their personal Divine. Ekam is constructed based on the design of an 800-year-old revelation. It is built as a 3-dimensional Surya Yantra. Every morning, when the first rays of the sun touch the Amruta Kalasha of Ekam, every inch of the sacred ground gets charged with celestial energy.
