Dear Krishna Christ,

Love. Oh! Don't take life so seriously!

Because seriousness is a great dis-ease.

And not only a disease but a suicide also.

Be playful - totally.

Because that is the only way to be living.

Life is a play - a leela.

And to know it so is religion.

And to live it so is sannyas - renunciation.

If you can act and live as if acting and living in a dream and still be a witness to it then you will be in the cosmic flow - the TAO.

And to be in the cosmic flow is to be free - free from oneself - the EGO.

The EGO is the seriousness - the disease.

And the TAO - the egoless existence is the bliss - the ecstasy.

That is why I have given you a name - so absurd!

But I have given it to you knowingly.

I have given it to you so that you may never be identified with it.

The name is so absurd that you will have to remain nameless and no-body behind it.

And the name is such that not only others but you yourself will be able to laugh at it.


Oh! What a name?

But perfectly suitable in a dream-drama.

Is it not so?

So feel at ease with it - and laugh with it and sing and dance with it and be SWAMI KRISHNA CHRIST with all the letters in capital!

And - always remember thatyou are no-body.

And always be aware that you are neither a Swami - nor a Krishna - nor a Christ.

This is what is meant by a Swami!

And, Krishna himself is not a Krishna and Christ himself is not a Christ - because they are nameless - absolutely nameless.

They are no-bodies - and that is what makes them divine.

The moment one is identified with any name, one is lost to one's divinity.

Either one can be a name or a reality.

And no one can be both simultaneously.

Be a name really - and your reality is lost.

Be a reality really - and your name is just a dream - maya.

And, what non-sense to be a Swami!

But once one is at ease with the non-sense one transcends it.

Please! Don't try to be sensible otherwise you will never be with any sense at all!

Because only stupidity tries to be sensible!

The existence is absurd.

And meaningless.

And irrational.

And that is why it is so beautiful.

And to be in it is such a blessing!


(To, Swami Krishna Christ, alias Mr. Walter Pfuetze, 5, Vassar Lake Drive, Poughkeepsie, New York, Zip 12601, U.S.A.)

"In Torah, the people of Israel were called an army
only once, in exodus from the Egypt.

At this junction, we exist in the same situation.
We are standing at the door steps from exadus to releaf,
and, therefore, the people of Israel, every one of us
is like a soldier, you, me, the young man sitting in
the next room.

The most important thing in the army is discipline.
Therefore, what is demanded of us all nowadays is also

Our supreme obligation is to submit to the orders.
Only later on we can ask for explanations.
As was said at the Sinai mountain, we will do and
then listen.

But first, we will need to do, and only then,
those, who need to know, will be given the explanations.

We are soldiers, and each of us is required to do as he
is told in the best way he can. The goal is to ignite
the spark.

How? Not via means of propaganda and explanations.
There is too little time for that.
Today, we should instist and demand and not to ask and
try to convince or negotiate, but demand.

Demand as much as it is possible to obtain,
and the most difficult part is, everything that is possible
to obtain, the more the better.

I do not want to say that it is unnecessary to discuss
and explain at times. But today, we are not allowed to
waste too much time on debates and explanations.

We live during the times of actions, and we must demand
actions, lots of actions."

-- Lubavitcher Rebbe
   From the book titled "The Man and Century"
[Lubavitch Rebbe is presented as manifestation of messiah.
He died in 1994 and recently, the announcement was made
that "he is here with us again". That possibly implies
that he was cloned using genetics means, just like Dolly.

All the preparations have been made to restore the temple
in Israel which, according to various myths, is to be located
in the same physical location as the most sacred place for
Muslims, which implies destruction of it.]
