Descent of the Divine Mind

When the vast majority of human beings on earth pursue their own desires which arise out of attachments for thoughts associated with objects of matter and forms of people who are also made of matter, then over several centuries, humanity strays so far away from the Divine Plan which is unfolding through the process of creation that, unless this inertia away from the Divine Plan is stopped and made to change, the balance between the Divine Will and the anti-Divine will in manifestation gets upset. When this balance in physical manifestation is upset, it will lead to severe destruction not only on earth but through the earth, create an imbalance in our solar system which in turn will lead to catastrophic changes in the cosmos. This is one main reason why the Mind of God or the Divine Mind descends to the earth plane through High Beings incarnating in human form. Such descents of High Beings have happened throughout recorded history and even in prehistorical times. It is through such High Beings that the Divine Mind restores the balance between the Divine and the anti-Divine in manifestation on the earth plane, and for the benefit of humanity, the Divine Mind also reveals spiritual principles through the High Beings. The High Beings then develop Rules of Conduct based upon the laws which emanate from the principles and the rules which emanate from the laws. The laws and the rules developed by the High Being are meant to reflect the spiritual principles and together they sometimes form the code of conduct and belief system of a new religion. It is through this process that all the world religions were founded, beginning with the religion which originated in Persia through the Prophet Zarathustra and the Vedic religion of India, and later manifested as Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, and Sikhism, which is in the process of becoming a world religion.

Unfortunately, many people do not understand the difference between principles, laws, rules and systems. So, over time, they stop giving importance to the basis of the religion and remain attached to the rites and rituals. Thus, the religions devolve into religiosities which Rev. Dadaji explained is the practice of only the externalized rites and rituals. Fundamentally, the basis of all religions is the same having descended from the same source. But since most people give value to rites and rituals, they think that the rites and rituals of other faith traditions, which are generally different, are wrong. So frequently disagreements arise due to the differences in the rites and rituals, and unfortunately, these often lead to violence. Therefore Rev. Dadaji, Dr. Dinshah K. Mehta, explained the difference between principles, laws, rules and systems, and emphasized that principles alone are inexorable and that one should never violate the principle upon which a manifestation is based.
