Faith in Drama comes after many deeply thinking, discovery and considering everything to be good.
Faith is needed to make use of Drama.
What is Drama
It is NOT a FACT but, an INSTRUMENT that can be used.
YANTRA & MANTRA
The Knowledge of the cycle is a piece of INSTRUMENT (YANTRA), spinning everything and a piece of ADVISE (MANTRA)
eg. Everything is Good therefore Knowledge of the Cycle comprises mainly of Drama and Mantra and other stuff like the difference ages?
Direction Drama is going to the OPPOSITE in Confluence Age, compare to all other ages. In Confluence age, (CA) everything is depleted, but it is going to PERFECTION. CA is the time when we know about Drama.
Baba said, “If deities know about the knowledge of Drama they will lose their happiness”. When BK knows about Drama, it creates their happiness.
We can only know Drama at the end. Drama goes to the direction of Perfection, Liberation, a return to our original state (great happiness)
Happiness, Sense Pleasure, Positive n Negative. Happiness is all about gaining. Baba said, “Happiness that comes from sense pleasure is not at all valuable because it is temporary over all, since it won’t let us get anywhere.
eg. Ice cream, we enjoy it as long as it’s cold, and after that, it’s over and will just be in the memory.
Any pleasure we get from sensory organ is short lived. It doesn’t really qualify as, happiness.
Negative things happened (those we don’t like) Baba said, “Those are the things that are very good”.
There’s different between the negative sensorial feeling we have and the negative judgment when we use the instrument of Drama. Using the tool of Drama to the things that APPEARS to be negative, we have to know that Everything that happens in confluence age is good
Appearance of positive and negative in confluence age is deceptive.
eg. Something that’s good may lead you to be away from TRUTH, or away from spiritual wisdom; something that is bad may lead us to the Truth and spiritual wisdom. Therefore, we must be CAREFUL with SENSE IMPRESSION because our intellect evaluates those in temporary pleasure or apparent benefit.
From Gita, Baba teaches: We have to be equal in pairs of the opposite
eg We have to feel good of success as well as failure.
Sensory Consciousness = Body Consciousness. We will prefer the pleasurable things than the unpleasant, so, we remain in disequilibrium.
SPEED OF THOUGHT
If Drama puts us to equilibrium, then it prevents us to have fast thought. The more positive we are, the slower the thought; the more negative we are, the faster we are. EG When we consider in Drama something is bad, we will have high speed thought, and those thought will be negative and will erode our energy. We will get emptied when we do meditation with negative thoughts. That’s why Baba gave us the instrument of Drama to counterbalance
How to be an EXPERT to use Drama
We have to convince ourselves that Everything in Drama is good. We will then be positive. The bad things, good things, boring things, surprising things are all good. Not only that, we have to know WHAT’s GOOD about it. We have the ability to INTERPRET the different events, as to how exactly why they are good. This is part to become EXPERT in the use of Drama.
STILL & FOCUSED MIND
Baba wants to make our mind STILL and to CONTROL the mind. The Knowledge of Drama is very necessary to do this because when the mind tells the intellect that it is bad, then it goes to a MASSIVE PRODUCTION of negative thought: Doubts, Worries, Anger, and different negative emotions, etc. Therefore if we are not competent in the use of the Instrument of Drama, we cannot control the mind.
So, the Knowledge of the cycle keeps the mind focus on Baba and what He says is called the Vasikan Mantra. This is the mantra that controls the mind, and controls everything. The most powerful mantra of all. Is there a particular mantra(s)or all the mantra in the murli?
There’s a Chinese game where a stick is used to spin the plate. As the stick is spinning, the plate must reach the middle of the plate to stabilize it, so the plate could constantly spin without falling down. It is a symbolic example how we use the Knowledge of Drama. The mind and intellect are very clear and very focused, and no events can move us to the stability which we call equilibrium. So, DRAMA, a spinning thing is very important.
Knowledge of Drama prevents the 3 types of Maya from attacking the BK. Dadi has been telling us those 3 forms of Maya: 1 Pardarshan (looking at others),2 Parchintan (thinking of others), 3. Pardosh (Finding fault or blaming and criticizing)
BK gone to the height of perfection and to the opposite and we are all together in Golden age, we are in harmony (in ACCORD).
Being different from each other doesn’t mean being disharmony. In discord (conflict), we become in Iron Age. There are clashes of sanskaras or clashes of ego.
Baba gave us an exercise: When we say I, the pure pride of I, the soul, the essence of Purity, Bliss and peace. How we become that if we really think that Every soul is performing its role because it’s fix. So, if we are looking at others, thinking of others and criticizing then we have forgotten that each soul is performing their allotted role.
Another useful phrase (MANTRA) a reminder: We can’t STOP, we can’t CHANGE, and we can’t CONTROL any circumstance. If we know this phrase then we don’t try to STOP, to CHANGE, and to CONTROL. If we still do them, even knowing them, but not really doing, then we don’t really know.
Knowledge of Drama implies that, we have to give to all the actors in the drama to perform their role, because they don’t have their choice. People concern about this and said: “I have free will”. We do have, but we have to exercise it judiciously, taking consideration, the reality that everyone’s part is fixed, and we don’t have any jurisdiction of what so ever in others people performances. The only jurisdiction we have is over our own.
This is why we have to have SWARDARSHAN CHAKRA (Cycle of Self Realization, Symbol Swastika). We have to become the possessor of the cycle of the self. This is one of the tool/ ornament of Vishnu. Also representing the tool in the index finger of Vishnu hands is the symbol of Purity of Thought. The lotus flower represents, detached in action and life. Conch shell, speak the truth in a sweet way. Maze represents firm decision, not to speak with emotion, EG if we speak with anger, it becomes the untrue. Our aim is to become Vishnu.
Education and Training
It is difficult for people as a wholeto adjust in thinking, Everything is good, because we are all trained and educated, indoctrinated in pointing out what is bad or good, not in going out what seems to be bad. This idea, philosophy, ideology put us into trouble, depleting us/ our energy, and made us fundamentally in discord with each other, and we have an antagonistic (against) relationship with the nature with each other and God.
What we have to become is in harmony. Baba gave us the Knowledge of Drama to become in harmony again.
Conventional Morality CM
What gets into it (harmonious life) is Conventional Morality. What we have to do is to renounce CM, Can we do it? It is difficult for people to do it. EG of CM in BK life: This person is not OK. This person is not doing the right thing; This person is not following shrimat; This person did not get up in the morning, etc.
It is good to remember that we are all volunteers and we are not paid to become a BK.
DANKE / Provider
Baba provides us with everything. Faith in Baba that He is our Provider. We may say that we earn our money, we use our talents, but who gave us our talents? Consider these to be Godly gift. Our ability to operate successfully is very much contingent on Baba giving us very good information, support, sustenance, inspiration. All sort of thing. We say that He is our Provider.
NEEDANKE (no provider)
We became orphans (spiritual sense) In murli, Danke is translated as Lord and Master, but He becomes our Provider. Baba is our Provider. If the Provider gives us what benefit us, then we have a regard to the relationship: gratitude and recognition.
Swastika is what Baba provides us the best. We will be the master.
If we use the swastika in the wrong way, it becomes PARDARSHAN, counterclockwise instead of SWARDARSHAN, clockwise.
Attention and Position
Pardarshan, looking at other people. When we look at others, our attention goes to The Others. What’s supposed to go on is The Self. The whole thing about Raja Yoga is to focus our attention on the self. So, in the Drama, the Swastika is in the middle. what we get is a 360 degree perspective on ourselves, that’s Swardarshan chakra.
What we see is we go to the absolute perfection of Golden age, where the world is as perfect as we are. Because we have 84 births, so our movement of the cycle corresponds to the movement of the world. So that’s very good. We arrive from the beginning and continue to arrive at the end, and we Let Go.
The Knowledge of Drama has to do with letting go because when we know that we can’t control, Change, and Stop things from happening, then the best thing to do is LET GO. One thing we do in gyan, Put it in Baba’s hands.
To and With Baba
Whatever we cannot Change, Control and Stop, most things in the Drama, we give them to Baba. He is the owner of the Drama and He calls Himself, the Creator and the Director, and the Main Actor. What He tells us to do is fascinating instruction. He says: Cease and Decease for having DIRECT interaction with people and begin to have interaction with Me.
I can mention now that our Karma can now be with God, previously, when we were in the path of Bhakti, we will do action, spirit of religion in the name of God, EF: We do chartable act: I give you this donation in the name of God.
Once we come in gyan, everything become with Baba. In Bhakti, we made a promise and He reminds us: Anything we do, we will do it with You. We sit with You. We eat with You. We will not engage with the rest of the world.
So during the path of Bhakti, we have indirect Karma with Baba, and we have direct karma with people. And now, He said: We can have direct action with Him and indirect action with people.
So, the Knowledge of Drama is very helpful in that because whatever people are doing they are doing what they are suppose to do, because it is in their destiny and if they like it or don’t, it doesn’t make any differences. So, if we apply our energy to like or dislike something then, that’s misuse of energy. So, another way of looking is Acceptance. We have to accept WHAT IS.
Dadi Janki’s Wisdom on Attitude to things that happened: It is not good. It is not bad. It just is.
Settling Karmic Account
It is a very simple statement that refers to the huge thing, we call Drama, during the time of Iron age where everything is falling apart, relationship, karmic account to be settled, problem with the body, social, financial, philosophical, etc. and different forms of pain. Because it is the end of Iron Age and all this Karma is being settled.
And what generally happen, when we are suffering karma is this: We suffer, we also, dislike that thing that makes us suffer, so we do action to antagonize the situation, making it worst while we are settling karma, we are creating another karma at the same time.
Baba said, This is not productive. It is counterproductive, that’s why He gives us Power.
Dadi Janki told us the importance of the power of Tolerance and accommodation because these 2 powers are very important when settling karmic account. It can be through relationship or body that is giving us trouble. Some other worry, that lack which is going on puts us to negative thinking.
Drama and Karma
When we include the Knowledge of Drama, it also includes, the Knowledge of Karma. According to Didi Nirmala Drama and Karma are in 2 sides of the same coin. A currency we have to work on is Drama and Karma.
We have made an agreement with Baba that Yes, we know this is the time to settle our karma therefore, we will settle our debts and we will have sufficient intelligent, not to create a new one, but there is a force in settling karma. It will want us/ compels us to create new karma. We need to use the knowledge of Drama and Power of Tolerance and Accommodation to handle that force; to neutralize that force.
So, if somebody is doing horrible things to us, we will say that’s Drama. It is quiet OK, quite fine. We are not going to do anything against it. We are going to ACCEPT. Know that it is in the Drama, nobody can do about it. It is not good or bad. It just is. Certainly, it is not going to bother us, and whatever pain it brings to us, we will tolerate it and accommodate it. And we will get through with it with the least amount of resistance.
Dadi Janki’s wisdom
Negative things is like waves, it comes and it goes and while tsunami is passing us, we have to be flexible and stable and let it just pass through. When it passed through, we handle it according to Baba’s gyan and using the power that are meant to be used. We find ourselves more empowered, lighter, and clearer and somehow, we have progress because it is also a test and we pass the test.
Karma and Test
So, very often if we say, this thing is settlement of karma and part of Drama, we may have a little feeling of sorrow, and may take sorrow: “I am settling karma”. “I am suffering” or, “Dear I am having sorrow”.
Baba gave us the concept of being a Test, whether, we deserve it or not. It is a test. And, if we know that it is a test, the relationship with the test is we have to pass the test. Maybe, a hard test, and we take it as an exams, and we have to pass it, not that it makes us sorrow. It maybe a stiff exams, maybe also in settling karma. It is anyway Drama.
Faith and Test
When we take it as a test, then we won’t take it as sorrow then we will go for victory, passing the test. SO the test will be Test of Faith. Most tests are test of Faith. So, we have the 4 faith: Faith in Self: Terrible things happen, “I am Ok, and It is OK. Baba is good”. 2nd Faith in Drama, 3rd Faith in Baba and 4th Faith in the Family:”The BK family is good.
The overall result is that I moved forward in my process as student of Godly knowledge and I am getting closer to my destination of being karmateet, and Maya teet (conqueror of Maya) and jagad teet.
Baba introduced us: Conquering of mind, meaning we don’t have any negative thought about it. Everything is good. Everything is proper. Everything is Drama.
Aim and Status
We are in the greatest university there is and the result of the course is that I become Laksmi and Narayan. And there is no highest status than that in anytime, or any place in the world.
When we do course of study, we do it for a status; we want to become a lawyer, Engineer, Doctor, that means we will get a position, a status.
The status of Laksmi and Narayan is that we become the emperor or the empress of the world. The whole world belongs to us. And there is nothing above us, other than God. And at that time when we are actually Laksmi and Narayan, Baba goes in retirement. So, you are it. There is no higher status than that.
So, part of human nature to strive for personal improvement. It is the natural urge for human being, we try to be better, better than we were, better than other people. We strive for improvement. We want to have all the things.
Happiness, Abundance (spiritual)
If the person’s ambition is financial, “I want to be the riches in the world. I want to be a millionaire, guazillionaire and what it is; we will get into the list of the richest of the world. But, Baba has defined happiness in different ways.
The status of Laskmi and Narayan means, of course, huge accountant of wealth (no doubt), but we also will have to have perfect health, beauty and then ideal and perfect relationship.
So, in Confluence age, using the Knowledge of Drama, Baba, Soul and having the Faith in the Knowledge of Drama enable us to experience (the status of Laksmi and Narayan) even when we are in Confluence age because we follow His direction.
It is said, There’s nothing lacking for those in God’s House. We have everything we need. We are ok. We have food, clothing, transportation and we come to India yearly. We have harmonious relationship.
When we have Faith in Drama, we are handling our karmic account in such a way that everything leads in harmonious relationship. We don’t bear grudge. We don’t hold resentment. We don’t criticize. We don’t tell everyone’s problems, bad behavior to the whole world.
This shrimat Baba gave us. Everything is as should be. It is not bad. It is not good. Baba tells us that It exudes good feelings and pure feelings.
Result in Using Drama, Negativity
So there is no good reason to entertain negative thoughts. If we entertain negative thought, simply purely, we forgot, Drama. We fail to use the Knowledge of Drama and we don’t know how to use the Knowledge of Drama. We start to know how to use the Knowledge of Drama, we will have no negative thoughts, no waste thought, we will be able to have STABLE mind, STILL mind and PURE mind, and we can do service through the mind. We can’t do service of the mind if the mind is not very, very STABLE, STILL and PURE.
Importance of Yoga
Faith in Knowledge of Drama We can do everything and what we have to do is KNOW the Knowledge of Drama. TRUST the Knowledge of Drama is right and APPLY. And it is not a blind faith because we know how it operates and only thing that we make sure is to have yoga. To have yoga, we take power and the power enables us to apply Faith in Drama because if we don’t have yoga then we say, “What if I can’t”. We become unable because we have to have power to do it and if we don’t have yoga…
Dadi Janki’s wisdom Remembrance
Yoga Tapasya, everything, the whole yagya was able to be established because of the Yoga Power of Brahma Baba.
So, the Power of Yoga is the energy we take from Baba that gives us the possibility to apply what He says, because if our yoga is down then the energy of negativity will be overwhelmed our good intention, then, we go into the failure stage. When we fail, that of course is Drama and we say, I better take my act together and start doing it correctly because failure makes us pay more attention.
Carelessness has been getting into the way, not paying adequate attention to do what He says. So if we didn’t collect power, then we can’t do, what we want to do and need to do

Notes taken 4 April 2012, recorded from BK Jewels
BK doesn’t know how to use the knowledge of Drama,
Dadi Janki commented and asked Sr Denise to give the intrinsic knowledge of Raja Yoga (Niji Gyan) including this topic, Drama.
