Shri Guru Achyuta,
believed to be born with the powers of Shri "Garuda"
(the mythological half-man
half-bird vehicle of Shri Visnu), who
taken birth as Shri Krusna's
friend Shri Sudama during Mahabharata
born as Shri Achyutananda Das in this Kaliyuga about
~550 years before.
In his first birth in this Kaliyuga
his name was "Sindurananda"
(Sundarananda as per some documents)
when he was in the companionship of Shri Chaitanya (partial manifestation of Visnu for
Naama-Bhakti) in Bengal. Then at the instruction of Lord
Chaitanya, he left that body and took birth in Sudra kula in the
State of Orissa and had the name "Achyutananda" (quoted from Shunya Samhita). Finally, when Shri Chaitanya
came to Orissa (Puri) he initiated the PanchaSakhaa as his five disciples and
gave five Mantras to five-friends. After 18 years of staying in Puri and
spreading HareKrusna Mahamantra, one day Shri Chaitanya disappeared with a lightning into the idol of
Lord Jagannath. The devotees were still waiting for him in front of the
Garuda Stambha (a pillar named Garuda) in the temple of Lord Jagannath. The
illusionary Chaitanya (Visnu) created another illusion and went away after
fulfilling his wish of spreading the MahaMantra. He had declared that this
PanchaSakhaa are his five Atmaas (souls) and are not less than the manifestation
of Shri Visnu himself. That was the mystical disappearance of
Lord Chaitanya- the Brahma disappeared into the DaaruBrahma (wooden form of
Brahma). The same formless Brahma had manifested partially in the form of
Chaitanya and disappeared into the self-
as if the "quantum particles" and the "quatum anti-particles"
annihilated each other with a flash of energy.
Garuda, the vehicle of Shri Visnu, the mythological bird, destroyer of
the evils is none other than a part of Shri Visnu
himself. It is only Garuda who had taught the Puranas and all the divine
teachings to the Rishis and Munis which later were continued in the lineage. He
is the Guru of the first Rishi-Munis and had composed the "Garuda Puraana". Lord
Visnu, who will take the form of Kalki, the destroyer of the evil, will do that
with his powers Garuda, Shankha, Chakra, Gadaa, Padma. There is no single person
on this Earth as Kalki, many might claim being illusioned and made greedy by
small powers or Siddhis, but Kalki is an integration of all the powers of Shri
Visnu who might use his devotees body as a medium to do some of his own work.
The Kalki will only be a combination of a human body with the five souls of Shri
Visnu. He will not take a separate birth as Kalki but will only use the body of
a realized Devotee. About Shri Achyuta; he also will not take another birth but
will do his work through his disciple, even many might claim to be Shri Achyuta
in later years. He (Achyuta) had hinted this in his Chakadaa Madaana (a
manuscript): Daasa, many will claim to be Achyuta, remember who will claim loud
will never be Achyuta. The final test will be in Jobra Ghat where I will reveal
myself, the test will be "Anaakaara" test. Mahapurusha Acyhutanada left
his mortal body about 500 years back in Shunya Sadhana. He lives in a Shunya
form and communicates to normal people through his Oracle (Tamrapothi), or to
dear ones through the medium of dreams or some other form of divine
He (Mahapurusha Achyutananda) also adds in
the secret "Chakadaa Madaana"
(revealed in the year 2004):
"My devotees and the pious have suffered a lot. The demons and evils have
almost conquered the Earth and for their greed, lust, and selfish ends have
given pain and harmed the truthful ones. There is no respect for divine truthful
thinking, and righteous souls and this Kali (yuga) has reached great powers. I
am also sleepless for my devotees. I know they have suffered and still have not
lost their faith and still take my name and wait. I, the ShunyaDehi
(whose body is Shunya), move in many forms from here to there and in the
wind and watch; sometimes I take the form of a madman, sometimes I become a
saint, sometimes I appear as a thief, and sometimes as Vaidyas (doctor). The
time (Kaala) is very powerful. But now the time has come and I promise the
devotees a good time in not-so-far future. I, the crooked and the cruel, who
acts as Visnu wants, will bring the Satya-yuga back, and destroy the evils (mletccha).
The Sudarshana (Lord Visnu's weapon-disc) is there to identify the devotees and
truthful souls. And the time is near (he refers to the period of 2004 mid to
-2017 mid when the Yugakarma will be played in Shunya). The Anaakara is my
vehicle to move and the five elements are my weapons [he refers to the natural disasters caused by the elements: earthquake, Tsunamis, wild fires, glacial melts etc.]. What the machines can do when they fail to work? (in a mocking sense). What evil will be left over after the first phases, the human-made nuclear powers will be their chief destroyer, what can I do?. My devotees are dear to me and they take the name Achyuta Achyuta, and the feelings will be there between me and my devotees. And I, Achyuta, will be playing in many different forms in many different places, that
only few will know."
At this point, it might be
interesting to quote from midevial literature, parts of
Bhavisyata Maalika, where Shri Achyuta
had hinted to Ram Das, and from Shunya
Samhita. The manuscripts are still available in Oriya.
about YugaKarma in "Bhavisyata Maalika" (literature of ~ 1600 AD):
Das (GopalaRama) looks at ShriGuru
and asks: “Please describe
sport to me. In which
palce will you be born ?” Then
Achyuta replies with oracular phrases:
O Rāma, listen.
“There is a land called Linga to the south of the Khira
river. The creator has placed Mahesha to
the west and
Peepal tree (Bata; Aswattha)
is in the east.
The giri (mountain) has gone underground
strange sounds are heard.
This is a secret and don’t
disclose it before time.
When the terrible Kaliyuga will be
Ghata (body) will be concealed
(i.e., no physical form). Bhaktas will roam in many
countries but won’t be able to trace. You alone will disclose the secret. I
shall be performing my sport
secretly and I mean my words.
Add one to four and place three zeroes on the right.
That’s the time when the devotees
will join hands to drive Kali
out. Achyuta says this after giving
All those eternal devotees
who have been born will be free from fear and confusion.
Banners will be posted at Nuāpātanā
and you will know that the time has come. The
all-knowing devotees will be
satisfied. The wicked will think all this strange and indulge in misdeeds,
and will tease the devotees
and quarrel. In a moment they will fall
into the Kālachakra (the cycle of time-death).
The lotus blooms secretly in
Nemāla. The lilā (sport) will
start there first. The wicked Achyuta will be witnessing that lilā.
At the approach of Kalki those who talk sarcastic,
will feel increasingly
insecure. Mahāmayee (goddess) is waiting with her
weapon. Achyuta says, she will destroy their pride one
A few false saints will be
preaching false knowledge and
they will have no footing
anywhere. They will face the
dire consequences. ... Those
who practice the Ekākhyara mantra, will be happy to witness the Lord’s
sport. They will pass their time
happily, for they have suffered in the past. Achyuta
concentrates on the lotus-feet and sings.
When the thirteen people will
meet a terrible quarrel will ensue. I will keep myself concealed like oil in an
oilseed (tila). ... You
will see this with your own eyes, says Achyuta. The
proposed Kaliyuga Mahābhārata war will be fought. Then the burdens of the earth
will be lightened. ... I am
disclosing all these secrets to you. ...
Achyuta says, take
you all the name of Hari. Give
up your pride and don’t get confused. Devi will certainly wring their (people)
necks and nothing can prevent her. ...Go
and surrender yourself, remembering the holy fire. Everybody is afraid of the
clutches of death. Achyuta
says, recite the Panchākhyara mantra.
The name Rāma has
only two letters, inside and outside. Concentrate your mind on that. You will
experience sweetness on your tongue and get a sweet smell. Achyuta the servant (dāsa)
says, you will witness rāhāsa (sport).
Join laya (attention) and anga (body) together
(Layaanga Yoga) and put
them into the lilā. Place the lābanyamurti (the delicate image) in the body. The
two, Rādhā and Krushna,
are together. Achyuta says this
by joining laya and anga. You will witness the lilā under the bansi (flute) bata
(Peepal tree). He is not to be
perceived by way of the twelve juna(s) as
He has thirteen expressions (Prakāsha).
Look at the river Triveni through sahaja sutra (simple principles). A lotus with
thousand petals blooms there. Satya (truth), Shanti (peace), Dayā (kindness) and
Khyamā (forgiveness) are away from there. Wicked Achyuta says this, following
Lose yourself in the service of the lord and be
conscious. Worldly desires will not touch you then. The so-aham
(I am He) swan (hansa) dominates your body.
That path is
thin as a needle-point,
take that path and you will
reach the Shunya-Mandala.
The Bindu-Brahma is present
there in Shunya.
... If you wait in consciousness you
could become Kalpabruddha (wise and immortal). It’s not easy to elaborate
the virtues of Shri-Hari.
Achyuta says, first bring the mad elephant under control.
Son, you shall live in the
forest of sorrow (Khyova bana) but won’t be affected by it. Live like a dumb and
deaf man in this world. ..."
(end of a part of Bhavisyata Maalika written by Shri Achyuta in ~1600 AD)."
The following is a part of
Shunya Samhita, where Shri Achyuta has
described his association with Shri Chaitanya, and the cause of his last birth.
The manuscript is partly available (the preface) in Oriya language.
writes about his birth & association with Shri Chaitanya in "Shunya
Samhita" (~1600 AD):
(ocean of compassion; here he refers to Shri Chaitanya)
caused my birth. He himself was born in Navadweepa
(a place in Bengal, India). He was Shri Chaitnya, Lord
of the universe who manifested on earth along with Nityaananda.
I was born with them. He traversed the world in the guise of an ascetic,
in the company of his followers.
In due course, he came to Niļaachala
(Puri), with his devotees,
along with the five noblemen:
Bhatta, and Raghunaatha Daasa.
He himself pointing out to me
instructed: ‘You should perform Raasa
(sport) in Odiyaa
Desa (Orissa) and by consecrating the Gopaaļa
tribe (milkmen), you should consecrate yourself. You must destroy your present
body, and be born in the SudraKuļa
(a lower caste). O Achyuta, be
off now and start performing
I was in his company and after obtaining
the command, I
left my body and was born in SudraKuļa.
God’s command the to me was, ‘Take
to the appearance of BrahmaGopaaļa,
wear a sacred thread on your right shoulder, and
celebrate your eternal sport.’
My earlier name was
which was hidden
thenafter and I, the sinner and
the wretched, came to be known as Achyuta."
In the following song, Baba Shri Buddhanath Das explains the
mystery of birth of Shri Achyutananda Das, that took place about 550 years
before in the state of Orissa. After leaving the mortal body, he never took
birth again and preferred to live with shunyadeha (ethereal form) but had
promised to his disciples and devotees: "We all shall meet and recognize again
in the end of Kaliyuga at the banks of Gobari (refers to Garoi)". Who will be
what, he had written all with specific description in one manuscript called
"Jaiphula Malika", which is mainly about the identity of his disciple and
devotees. Sri Achyuta Das was born to Dinabandhu Khuntia and Padma devi in a
village called Tilakona in Orissa in about 1510 AD on a "Magha Sukla Ekadasi" (a
specific time described in Oriya calender). His parents were childless for a
long time and were praying to Lord Jagannâth for a child. One night his father
had a vision that Garuda (the bird of Vishnu, an Eagle) gave him a child. Next
morning he rushed to the temple and prayed at the "Garuda Khamba" (a pillar in
front of the Jagannâth temple) thanking the Lord for his mercy. At this point
there are two different beliefs: some are of the
opinion that he (Dinabandhu Khuntia) found a newborn divine child there and he
is Achyuta ("A + chyuta"). Some others believe that, soon after this incident
(vision), Padma devi was booned with a divine child. Henceforth, Shri
Achyutaananda Das was born at Tilakana, Cuttack. Similarly the other four
spiritual mates took birth at: Shishu Ananta Das at Baalipaatanaa in Puri
dictrict, Yashovanta Das at Adhanga in Cuttack district, Jagannaatha Das at
Kapileswarpur in Puri dictrict, and Balaraama Das at the temple town of Puri
itself. Below is the description
about his human-birth in the name of "Achyuta", song by Baba in an emotional
