‘Since the year 2000, seekers are aware about the fast approaching adverse times, but now it is almost at our doorstep. Only few months are left for it to commence. Various Nadi astrologers and visionary saints have predicted that the Third World War will gradually begin after the year 2019. The first phase of the World War will be fought at the psychological level as war between any two countries first begins at that level; for example the U.S.-Korea conflict, China-U.S. conflict etc. Within next 2 or 3 years the World War will be fought at the gross level. Based on the principle that ‘along with the evil some good also gets destroyed’ the righteous and the seekers living in society will also have to face the wrath of the adverse times to some extent.
In adverse times there is failure of electricity due to storms, earthquakes etc and the transport system breaks down due to shortage of fuel such as petrol, diesel etc. Consequently, cooking gas, food products etc are in scarcity for months together. Even if theyare available then there is rationing of these supplies. In the adverse times, availability of doctors, Ayurvedic doctors, medicines, hospitals etc is next to impossible. Taking all these things into consideration and to be able to face the adversity, everyone needs to be prepared at the physical, psychological, familial, economic and spiritual level. General guidelines on this are given further. Try to follow them as much as possible from today itself.

1A 2A. Keep a ‘first-aid kit’ ready for use in the family
Prepare a first-aid kit with painkiller tablets and ointment, gauze and tape (to be wrapped on wound), tablets for common diseases such as fever, vomiting etc. Keep the kit at a place where it is easily reachable. Instead of placing tablet strips, put the tablets in an airtight container and label with name of tablet, ailment for which it can be used, date of manufacture and date of expiry. This is to ensure that the expiry date of the tablet is not lost when a tablet is taken out from the strip.(Additional details on the first aid kit are given in Sanatan’s Holy text ‘First-aid training – Examining the victim, saving the critical victim’s life and first-aid on ailments associated with shock’.)

1B 4. Use equipment which work on solar energy : Solar energy can be leveraged for cooking. To be able to do so, install a solar unit and procure equipment such as solar cooker. Solar energy can also be used to light bulbs, to heat water for bathing, etc.
1B 5. If a well is not available close to your home, then get one constructed immediately : In adverse times in case the civic administration is unable to supply water, then it can be drawn from a well close to your home. People staying in close vicinity can get together and get a well dug immediately.
1C. Due to unavailability of doctors,
vaidyas, medicines, hospitals etc in the forthcoming
adverse times, do the following to overcome diseases !

(Sanatan’s Holy texts ‘Growing medicinal plants based on available land’ and ‘How to grow medicinal plants’ gives detailed information on growing medicinal plants and its uses to treat various diseases. Holy text on ‘Simple Ayurvedic home remedies’ is also getting published shortly.) Start using medicinal plants as needed.

3. Preparations to be made at the
family level for the upcoming adverse times

doorstep as far as possible do not invest in a new flat,
instead consider an option of staying in a rented premises
1. Taking into consideration that in adverse times the buildings can be damaged due to earthquakes, landslides etc., as far as possible avoid investing in buying new houses or flats; instead live in rented premises.
2. In unavoidable circumstances, choose an area which is likely to be safer.
3. Avoid buying a flat located above the third floor because in case of a calamity such as earthquake evacuation from the building upto the third floor is easier.
4. If the current flat is located at a higher floor beyond the third floor, then see if an alternate flat is available.
3B. If you have a home in the village
then get it renovated so that you can live there
In the upcoming times due to natural calamities, growing terrorism etc., several cities will get destroyed. In such situation you will have to migrate to the village. Therefore if you own a house in the village then get it maintained immediately so that it is in livable condition.
3C. Recall family members who
have gone abroad for job or business
Bharat is fundamentally a holy land. In the forthcoming adverse times there is a higher probability of other countries being devastated due to prevalence of Raja and Tama as compared to Bharat. Also safe travel to Bharat will be difficult once the war commences.
4. Financial preparedness
from viewpoint of adverse times
Financial scams of several banks are being exposed every day. To keep your money safe choose the following alternatives given below. When investing money make sure that you follow the principle in economics ‘do not put all eggs in one basket’, i.e. invest in various instruments so that if one fund sinks then the money invested elsewhere is still safe.
4A. Ponder on the following points when making investments
4A 1. Savings in various nationalised banks
Distribute your savings in multiple nationalised banks to prevent losing entire money if the bank in which you have saved all money becomes bankrupt. As upto 1 lakh rupees of investment of every account holder is insured in the nationalized bank, maintain savings of maximum of one lakh in each bank.
4A 2. Make your wife and major children aware of your bank account operations
Your family members should be able to do basic bank transactions of depositing or withdrawing money from your account.
4A 3. Investment in valuables such as gold and silver
If you wish to invest in gold then instead of buying ornaments buy pure gold rings. This prevents money loss in breakage. Later no matter what the situation is we can still use such valuables.
4A 4. Investing in land
Buy cultivable land if possible. If one cannot invest in land individually, then few people can come together and buy a piece of land. Investing in land will always reap returns in near or long term.
4B. Those who have invested in
shares should start planning from now itself
Expenses for home such as getting a well dug, making arrangements to setup solar energy is a kind of investment itself.
5. Other points
5A. Start clearing unwanted things from your home
This will ensure damage to minimal things in your home in the adverse times and will also help seekers in reducing attachment for their possessions. As in the adverse times survival is more important than anything else you should be able to leave home with just one bag or suitcase.
5B. Maintain a diary of telephone numbers of the
police station, fire station and other important contacts
In the adverse times if your mobile phone is discharged then it will be tendered useless. Hence telephone numbers of the police station, fire station, nearby hospital etc and their address should be maintained in a separate diary. This will assist in calling from another’s mobile phone or landline phone.
5C. packed briefcase with essential documents
One should be prepared to leave the house immediately in the adverse times, hence keep a briefcase packed with essential documents such as ration card, Aadhar card, bank passbook etc
5D. Rear dogs to guard the house, cows
for milk, ox for a bullock cart, horses for travel etc
Learn rearing of domestic animals. Buy a bicycle, cycle rickshaw, bullock cart, horse carriage etc. Dogs will provide protection from rioters, cows are for milk and ox and horses will help in travel or transportation of the sick.
6. Spiritual preparedness
from the viewpoint of adverse times
6A. There is no alternative to performing spiritual
practice and becoming a devotee of God to be protected
from calamities in the upcoming formidable adverse times
To be able to face the upcoming adverse times perform actions as given in this article. However, even if one excels in learning the remedies of acupressure, stocks ample amount of essential commodities for sufficing needs of the families etc. only if one is saved from natural calamities such as earthquakes and tidal waves (tsunami) capable of uprooting thousands of lives within seconds, only then these preparations would be of any use. It is only God who can save us from such life-threatening calamities. So if you wish that God should save you in such adverse times then perform spiritual practice and devotion. Then no matter how grave the calamity God protects His devotees. There are several such examples to justify this, one of them being Prahlad a devotee of Deity Vishnu. In the Holy Geeta, Shrikrushna has assured ‘न मे भक्तः प्रणश्यति ।’ (My devotees will not perish). It implies that there is no alternative than to performing spiritual practice to survive in any crisis.
6A 1. Seekers should mentally prepare themselves to perform full time spiritual practice by living in the ashram
Some seekers have tried to convince their relatives opposing spiritual practice, about its importance, yet these relatives continue to behave as per their minds. Now that adverse times are at the doorsteps, seekers should ignore such relatives and prepare themselves mentally to perform full time spiritual practice as in Spirituality eventually we have to think of only ‘God and the self. In the adverse times only the spiritual practice and not the relatives or money will be able to save us. Hence for mental preparedness seekers should take guidance from responsible seekers and Saints. To be able to develop the readiness to become a fulltime seeker, one can practice for the events mentioned in A3 suggestions. Also, by staying in the ashram intermittently for seva, the mental preparedness will get firmed up.
6A 2. Perform spiritual practice with seriousness
Try to put each and every point of guidance on spiritual practice published in Sanatan Prabhat periodicals into practice meticulously.
6A 3. Individual spiritual practice should be performed systematically
Seekers should attempt to perform their indivdual spiritual practice meticulously every day.
6A 4. For protection from distress caused by negative energy, perform spiritual remedies with seriousness every day
7. Creating public awareness about the upcoming
adverse times too is a kind of spiritual practice
It is essential to create awareness in the society by informing relatives and friends about the upcoming adverse times, sharing this article with office colleagues for their reading etc. This amounts to repaying the debt unto society and will also be a part of spiritual practice.’ – Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale
